On acoount of the unseasona

cotton will be necessary in por
tions of. Louisiana. Lark a areas
in Mississippi .will also have to
be replanted. Sef d are very scarce,
with high prices prevailing.

has been condemned by the agri

Roosevelt doubtless realizes that

at his inauguration that he wooli

A way around this positive dec

There is general regret through

if th it be the standard by which
towns are to be judged, Edgefield

commonwealth. Knights of the

Pension Rolls Published.

forty years since the war ploded ai
the steady thinning of therauks
pensioners on account of deatl
the number of pensioners in S m
Carolina has increased. This lea
one to ?uspect that some of tl
county boards are uot as caref
as they should be-in preparing t
cpuuty rolls. With an increase
the number of pensioners there
a corresponding decrease in tl
amount that each receives. Tb?r
fore, when boards grant applic
Hons of persons who do net ue<
state aid or who under the 'aw a

who are deserving and actually i
need. In all such cases, howeve
the boards are not always ;

Ideal Marlboro Farms.
In a letter to The State,. Mr. ;
E. Normeut, in his*u6ual happ
style, gives a pen sketch of som
of the ideal farms of Marlbor
county, this state, which he ha
recently visited. Messrs. Evaui
two brothers, a number of year
ago began farm life by rentin
land. From the profits made wbil
renting they purchased a tract am
have added to it until they no^
own a lordly estate of 2.585 aciee
Twelve hundred acres of this i
"From their front porch," say
Mr. Norment, "eau be seen 41J
acres of cotton, and there is not i
ditch in the entire field. The rowf
are about one mile long and whei
the harvest is passed and the sum
mer is ended and the sheaves hav<
all been gathered in, it is a pool
season indeed when less than 40G
bales of cotton have not been gar
nered from this beaatiful lield."
"It may be interestirg to knott
that these scientists use annual!}
more than 550 tons of fertilizers,
and among these used are included
nitrate of soda and Peruvian
guano. Their last purchases of
fertilizers included 55 car loads,
enough for a seasons business
with some wholesale dealers. From
680 acres in cotton they generally
gather 750 bales. This season they
will use 900 pounds of fertilizers
per acre upon the cotton when
planted, and in June 300 pounds
per iicre will be added. These
planters also have everything else
grown on the farm, and always
have corn and peas to sell, a fact
the importance of which is seldom
understood, but possibly it has
much meaning upon the success
of the large planters whoso work
is here being considered."
The foregoing excerpt from Mr.
Norment's letter gives an insight
into the farming methods, condi
tions, etc., of a. portion at least of
the Pee Dee section. The secret of
the phenomenal success of the
Marlboro farmers has been inten
sive farming. The figures given
above show that almost as much
fertilizers aro applied to one acre
in Marlboro-1,200 pounds-as is
applied to Ihe avenge one-horse
farm in this county.

It is little use for the local edi
tor to waste his lungs and sprain

town when the citizeus all stand

busiuees men do not put their
shoulders to tho wheel and do a
little boosting it is useless for the
editor to try to boom things. Tie

forever stick in the mud. Of what
uee is it for the local paper to sug

acted upon? One man can not
boom a town. It requires the con
certed action of the citizens. When
