Two Timely Implements.
The advertisement of Stewart &
Kernashan, the progressive hard
ware merchants, should be of special
interest to the farmers this week.
They first call attention to Deere
diverse cultivators which have
proven so satisfactor?7 to all who
have used them. This implement
can be used in cotton or corn, and
not only does the work satisfactori
ly, but is also labor saving. Another
implement that will soon be needed
to harvest hay is the Dain vertical
lift mower. Call and let Mr. Stew
art point out the merits of this ma
chine to you.

A Sad Death.
Mrs. Ray Humphries of Union,
formerly Miss Lillie May Bussey,
of Modoc, died at her home in Un
ion on Saturday the 18th of May. T
Mrs. Humphries was well known
in Edgefield, having been a student
of the S. C. C. I. for several years
and a graduate. She was gifted in
elocution, and gave pleasure by ber
selections on many occasions. After
teaching about two years, Miss Bus
sey was married to Mr. Ray Hum
phries, then superintendent of edu
cation of Union county, where they
have since resided. Mrs. Humphries
was buried at the family cemetery
about twelve miles from Union be
side the little babe that had pre
ceded her several days. Mrs. Hum
phries was the daughter of Mrs. A.
V. Bussey who was with her at the
time of her death. Mrs. Hugh Wates
her aunt, attended the funeral in
Union and also Cadet W. T. Hum
phries of the S. C. C. I., the latter
returning in time to receive his di
ploma at the graduating exercises
on Monday the 20th.

No Filth, No Flies.
"Swat-tlie-fly" campaigns for
1912 are well on. The elimination
of this filthy and dangerous insect is
a desirable end. The house-fly, in
addition to being a demonstrated
agent in the spreading of typhoid,
is strongly suspected, on more or
less conclusive evidence, with rela
tion to a large number of infections,
including cholera, dysentery, infan
tile diarrheas, diptheria, and con
tagious ophthalmia. About a bil
lion flies were killed in various cam
paigns of 1911-a statement which
seems impressive until one consid
ers the number of flies which es
caped the Slaughter. In Washing
ton, D. C., alone, some 7,000,000
flies were killed by the "swat," the
trap, drowning, sulphur fumes and
even by electrocution. Dr. How
ard of the Bureau of Entomology,
points out that in the congenial cli
mate of that city seven generations
of flies may be produced in a single
j summer. One female fly will lay
ion an average a batch of 120 eggs;
and if all these eggs from a batch
I laid in April should hatch and re
produce their kind in like manner,
there would be by autumn, from a
single female fly, a progeny of near
ly six thousand billion. And as
each female may lay four batches
of eggs, the figures for their un
checked development through a sum
mer stagger the imagination. To

have unchecked opportunity for
breeding. There is evon more
weight, therefore, in Stockbridge's
statement that during 1911 filthy
breeding places were cleaned up,
which, if left alone, would have
given opportunity for the propoga
tion of incalculable billions. Bet
