The Boston Herald is authority
"for the statement that in the past

for drunkenness in Manchester,
New Hampshire, and almost
identically the same number in
Springfield. Massachusetts. These
are two New England cities of
similar size-each has 60,000
population. The coincidence would
not be notable where it not for
the fact that Springfield is a
license town, having 47 liquor
saloons, while Mansfield is a pro

With these figures staring one in
the face, might we not well say :

Wheat, Followed by Cotton.
A Fort Mill township farmer
who was in Yorkville on Thursday,
reports that there will undoubtedly
be a great reduction in. the cotton
acreage in that township next year.
The farmers are sowing more
small grain than in any previous
season sines the war, and they are
putting it in as it should be done.
Many of them have broken their
lands with two-hor? plows, har
rowed them well, and put in the
seVd with drills. They are also
tuing a considerable amount of
Mr. B. M. Faris, of the Gold Hill
neighborhood, is reported as hav
ing determined on quite an inter
esting experiment. He has put
four acres of real good land in
wheat with a view to planting cot
ton after the harvest. He calcu
lates that he will be able to harvest
the wheat about the first of June,
and then he will follow, as soon as
possible, with cotton of the "King"
The experiment promises to be a
very important one. There have
been several cases in this section
where cotton planted as late as the
middle of Juue yielded good crops.
Some of Mr. Faris's neighbors
are reported as preferring that hn
would follow his wheat with peas.
They think that if the cotton ex
periment should prove a r uccesB, it
will result in a still further in
crease in the cotton crop in this
section. Others, however, will look
on the matter from a different
standpoint, believing, as they do,
that after a farmer has provided
for an -abundance of com, wheat
and oats,'etc., he is not apt to suf

Gantt is in Columbia this week

He replied as follows. "Once a

The negro chopped the log open

Wheeler Delighted with Fili
Gen. Joe Wheeler m a letter to
Hon. Joe Wood, of Florence, Ala.,
stating bis views on the Philippine
question, says :
I am delighted with the Philip
pine islands. I have no doubt
that a little puah and energy thi3
fall will crush out the 'Aguinaldo
insurrection. Out of 9,000,000 in
these islands, I do not think that |
he has more than 20,000 soldiers
and in a square fight 5,000 Ameri
cans would tear them j
to pieces. All that is ne
cessary to crush them out at onoe
is for the army to get them and |
keep at them until the work is
The evil features of these islands
have been exaggerated to our peo
ple. Their extent is so great from
north to south and the variation
of the altitude is such as there is a
great variety of climate and variety
of productions. Americans will
find this an excellent field for their
energies and the wealth-producing
powers of these islands under
American influence will be very
The action of some people in the
United States in asserting that the
people of the Philippines ought to
have independence does a great deal
of harm and assists Aguinaldo in
maintaining the insurrection, as
he publishes all assertions by
Americans of that character and
he teils his supporters that, if they
hold out until wiuter,jindepenenoe
will be given them. It also has a
bad effect in this-that people who
are disposed to be favorable to us
and who desire us to govern the
islands fear to assert themselves
because they know that if they
should do so and the Americans
should abandon them they would
be in great danger of their lives
and in all probability their pro
perty would be confiscated.

There is a class of people today

parties who look out for old
dilapidated homes, buy them at
extremly low prices, homes of from
75 *o 100 acres and dwelling for
$500, they will trim down the
hedges, repair the fences, patch
the houses, and give them a coat
of paint which always doubles the
value of the house in appearance,
on his $500 farm he will spend
from $25 to $150 in actual money,
in a sh o? t time, not over six months,
he hag sold the farm for $1500,
half cash, balance secured on
farm, payable in one or two years,
and he has eold it to some near by
neighbor who says "Why I did not
