Newberry College has thrown
open its doors to women. The
South Cai-olina College, Furman
University, and Wofford had pre
viously done the same thing.
"The most profitable hog ever
raised is one that never saw Christ

which a successful Georgia farmer
has chrystalzied the truth.
Col. Ellison S. Koitt of Newber

self for the United States Senate.
Senator Mayfield of Barnwell and
McLaurin are the only others that
have declared their intention of
standing for this high office.
" Of all thoso who bad an idea of
lunning for the United States
Senator, Solicitor Eellinger was
the best man in many respects;
but unfortunately he has declined
to make the race. In his absolute
fearlessnesi in the discharge of
duty, Mr. Bellinger was much
like the lamented Earle and in
such respect as well as intellectu
ally he would have made a worthy
successor to the dead Senator,

The Greenville News speaking
of good and available United
States Senatorial timber has the
following to say of Hon. Jno. C.
Sheppard : "John C. Sheppard is
a splendid man and talented."
And the News might have added
that, standing on the Chicago
platform of "tariff for revenue"
Mr. Sheppard would make a can

them, cannot abide McLaurin's

New Way of Traveling.
A Sherman, Tex., Press dispatch
Globe-trotting has become a
popular pastime, but it remained
for a citizen of Tampa, Fla., to
institute "globe-trundling." People
have traveled across the continent
on bicycles, others have made the
trip m ox wagons, and recently,
^ according to the newspapers men,
have flitted through the
atmosphere in airships, but the
Florida man has soashed all
records for novelty and originality
. in transportation.
Yesterday evening about dusk
his queer vehicle made its appear
ance at the home oi A. B. Rich
ardson, a market gardener, living
near She man. This peculiar
means of transportation was none
other than a wheelbarrow, propelled
in the good old way, by a roan
between the handles.
The man between the handles
in this case was a Mr. Harris, late
of Tampa. The wheelbarrow con
tained cooking utensils, a change
of raiment and other articles
necessary to a small degree of
comfort, besides a couple of chil
dren, a girl of eleven and a boy of
seven. Harris secured lodging for
the night with Richardson, and
while there he said that he was on
his way to Oregon and that he had
left Tampa late in the winter of
this year. The children trudge
along with their father until their
little legs grow weary, and they
are then given a "lift" in the wheel
Tnis queer company of immi
grants went on their way this morn
ing before photographs could be ob
tained of them and their humble
conveyance, but the mau who has
the courage to cross the continent
with his family in a wheelbarrow
will certainly become well krown

Something for Wheat Baisers.
By promise and request, I will,
for the benefit of those who aie rot
posted on handling wheat, say^ a
few words in regard to some essntia;
poinis that must be observed' I
would have you to know that the
writer is not a farber a'?d will
not have anything to say in re
gard to preparing ground, etc.
First. If you want a wheat that
will profit, you must not sow the
white wheat, for the reason that
the grai a is very soft ; therefore
very easy to become musty. Floar
from this wheat is also very soft,
consequently not very strong. You
must understand that will absorb
the most water (or milk) is the
.strongest and will make much the
finest bread. This you can prove
lo you own satisfact.ou. Some of
you who read this may not think
POjbutits absolutely impossible for
the miller, however good he or his
mill may be, to get by one-third
the amount of flour from sixty
pounds of white that he can from
red wheat. This arises from the
fact that the brau on the latter
is so much tbimer and can be
severed with lese difficulty. There
are other reasons that might be
given, but time and space will not'
Second. The farmer who suns
his wheat is only robbiug nature
of her sweetness. This is ono of
the most unreasonable things to
do. Sunning wheat is a mistake.
Nature explains herself here more
perfectly than ?any -miller could
.When you have worked hard to
get a gcod seed wheat, one that
you consider a full grain and
w? ll matured, one that you have
had shipped at a premium, one
that no sun has ever touched siuce
it was made; you sow this wheat,
it does well, grows nicely and you
consider it fine until you cut it
and get bad flour. It is then that
you pronounce the grain that you
sowed "no good." Now, I may be a
little too rigid here, or I may be
wrong, but just take what I have
said and compare it wiiii your for
mer crop and see if there is much
difference between my theory
and your practice. You will
say what must I do if my wheat
is wet when : the thresher comes.
Take my advice and don t let a
thresher touch it while in a wet
condition. It will pay you ?;o haul
it ten miles if it is only ten bushels <
you have to thresh. We want ali i
of the wheat that we can gi ina, i
but I had rather shut down than i
to grind wheat that has been c
threshed wet. Shock your wheat e
)r stack it and if it? gets wet 1er ve i
it. in the sheath until it is dry. We ?
ire prepared now to handle several c
;hou6and bushels of wheat and
;an move from twelve to fourteen
mndred bushels per day. So we
>ffer to those who desire to do so,
o bring the wheat from toe
hresher and deposit it here, Jet
is handle it for a week or sc, you
:an then get your flour at your
>wn convenience and we gauran
ee to give you thirty-six pounds
if good flour and twelve pounds
?f bran for one bushel of weighed
vhe&t. This will take the respou
iblity off of your hands and you
,re sure of your flour.
There is one other thing that
armers should watch when their I O
rheat is being threshed, and that
3, not to allow the machine to
ireak up the grin. A man who J",
nclerstands his business will not Y
renk wheat in threshing. Broken
rains are very detrimental to the
ritter. Cheat is much easier
ealt with. When a grain is broken
on may count it lost, for thero is
0 way to save it. There is no
heat machina that w:ll separate u
Dckrel and retain tho broken h
rains. A small quantiy of cockrel ai
? not so bad in wheat, as it can V
ll be sepaiated. Still it is
irelessness in farmers to let V
)ckrel grow, as it can easily be b*
voided. Cut your wheat two or ki
iree ddys before it is considered
pe enough for seed and see if you
ill not have a better yield. With
?st wishes for your future crops
am, yours truly, L. R. Veatcb

A school teacher tells the followr
g tale with much gnsfo:
"I was giving a geography lesson
j China the other day, and mou
rned its vast population-over
0,000,000. To present some idea
what such a stupendous number
iplied, I explained that if we
flated what must be the
corresponding number of deaths
among the Chinese, there must be
at least two person* die every time
we take a breath. The illustration
somewhat startled the boys, and au
involuntary gasp showed that it
had been appreciated. During the
morning I noticed a little fellow
who appeared very uncomfortable.
His face wae flushed with exertiou,
and he was puffing and wheezing
like an automatic steam eugine.

Pr?sident McKinley's trip to
Asheville has drawn attention to
one of the most picturesque regions
in the world. Long before the

and bracing atmosphere, and since
then newcomers have built a city

have their brick and mortar, but
the real foundation of Asheville is
an exhilarating, aerial champagne

the indigenous and transplanied
shrubs are intermingled so thai
