Rural Telephone Lines Needed.
Of great importance to Edgefield
and the entire county is the devel
opment of the rural telephone lines.
Under the plan of the Southern Bell
Companjr there is no reason why ev
ery farmer shouldnot have" a tele
phone, the cost being so low as to
place this, modern time-saver within
reach of all. The Bell people have
received inquiries .from several
sections of the county for informa
tion as to rates, and the manner ,in
which sorcvice can be secured.
The plan is a very simple one,
providing as it does for the organi
zation of a club of farmers in a giv
en locality, who jointly build the
line to the limits of the Bell Tele
phone Company's Exchange; the
Bell Company then connects the
line with its Exchange, and furnish
es free service between its Exchange
subscribers and the subscribers on
the Farmers' Line, and in tum the'
farmers or the country merchants
who are connected on the line get
free service with the Bell Company's
Exchange. The charge made by the
Bell Company is 50 cents per month,
for the service, where there is six
subscribers on the line. Each sub
scribes buys his own telephone, and
the subscribers together buy the ma
terial and build and maintain their
own line. The estimated cost of
building a .six mile line, including
everything, except poles, which the
subscribers furnish; would be only
about 812.00 to each subsciber.
There has been considerable de
velopment of this business in the
counties adjacent to Edgefield, and
we are glad to see our farmers tak
ing hold of this matter.

\ 'The schedule of mass meetings
to be conducted this summer by the
educational campaign committee has

INCREASE THE HUMUS.
Impoverished Soils Must Have
Fertility Restored by Plant
ing Crops That Increase
-Experience has taught the south
ern farmer that with the advanced
price of implements, fertilizers and
labor he can no longer make ends
meet by cultivating poor land.
Whereas under former conditions
h? could exist by cultivating land
that required three acres to make a
bale of cotton, he must now make
the same yield at less expense from
a smaller area. Farmers generally
realize this and are putting forth
greater effort to increase the fertility
of their soil from year to year. The
most economic aa well as most
effective way to restore the. soil on
impoverished lands is to plant such
crops, especially as a winter cover
ing, that will increase the humus
in the soil. The following from the
Farmers' Uuion Sun is a timely ar
ticle upon this subject:
"SoUs poorly supplied with hnmus
are never productive. Without a
liberal supply of vegetable matter
the crops are small, late in maturing
and poor in quality. Science and
practice have taught us that humus
conserves moisture, furnishes plant
food, accelerates chemical action, un
locks the mineral elements, favors
bacterial life, secures porosity in
compact soils, gives body to sandy
soils, prevents the formation of hard
crusts, and reduces the labor and
expense of tillage. Humus is the
great need of all sections. The hank
account of many farmers is suffer
ing because their lands are deficient
in organic matter. Truckers as well
as fruit growers are giving, this
question more attention than ever
before. Vegetable and small fruit
growers, who are generally too far
distant from- the city to transport
manure by wagon, are beginning to .
realize that yields will soon diming )
ish unless the supply of vegetable
matter ?B increased. Gardeners and '
small fruit growers throughout the -
North are agitating, the doctrine of
more humus and. ,.th?re js,reason to. J
believe that the general discussion "i
of this subject will result in greatly
improved soils and increased profits. -
One of the greatest, if not the great
est, conservera of humus is stable
manure, but as this is inaccessible
in sufficiently large quantities to
most farmers, the next best thing is
to sow the land for early spring
turning in clover, vetch, or some
such plants, which, in addition to
conserving the humus of the. soil,
provides food stuff for subsequent
