A Trio of Campers.
Last week three Edgefieldians en
joyed a camping expedition at Sal
ter's pond. The party consisted of
J. D. Holstein, Jr., James Paul and
Gill Dunovant- The trio passed the
time fishing, boating, swimming,
eating, sleeping, fighting mosqui
toes and telling yarns. At nights
their ranks were recruited by young
people who joined them from Edge
field. So well pleased were the trio
with the outing that they are plan
ning to spend another weok at this
rendezvous for fishermen later in
Pay Night of Commencement.
As heretofore, there will be only
one night of the commencement
that an admission fee will be charg
ed. That will be Friday night of
this week, at .which time the mem
bers of the elocution class will
present a very attractive play. t-The
money derived from this entertain
ment will be used to pay the bal
ance due on the band instruments
which will be owned by the town.
When the S. C. C. I. leaves these
instruments will be turned over to
the trustees to hold as property of
the town. It is hoped that the at
tendance will be large as during
former commencements. The pro
gram will be exceedingly interesting.
All who go will receive full value
for the small admission fee that
will be cnarged.

wisely in selecting Miss Vandiver
to go up and down South Carolina
to build up the weak schools. She

Senator E. D. Smith is Pressing
Legislation That Will Bene
fit the Farmers of the
To the Editor of The Adveriiser:
Of more than passing interest to the
farmers of Sooth Carolina, and par
ticularly the cotton growers, is the
measure introduced and passed
through the efforts of Senator E. D.
Smith requiring the department ol
agriculture to test the sensible
strength, that is, the yarn-making
quality of each and every grade of
cotton; to bleach every grade wheth
er in the form of yarn or cloth, in
order to determine the cost and the
result of bleaching; to estimate care
fully the amount of waste in each
grade incident to converting it into
yarn and cloth: to estimate careful
ly the value of this waste.
From this it will readily be seen
that the result of these experiments
will be of incalculable benefit to
the grower. This measure became
a law at the last session of congress
and the department of Agriculture
is now engaged in the work of in
vestigation, lt will give the produc
er the requisite knowledge from an
impartal official source of the real
commercial value of every grade of
As is well known, both the export
and domestic buyers make a differ
ence between middling and the low
er grades of anywhere from $1.25
to $15.00 per bale. The producer
had no way of knowing whether
this was right, just or not. He had
to take the word of the trade. By
virtue of this law, he will be fur
nished a bulletin giving him fail
knowledge of all these facts. So that
when he comes to market he will be
thoroughly informed as to the val
ue of every grade in reference to its
manufacturing value, and will not
have to take the word of an interest
In conjunction with the above
law, the grades have been standard
ized by the government. Senator
Smith has begun a campaign to
have every shipping point in the
cotton growing states furnished with
a set of these standardized samples,
that is, every shipping point where
there is a sworn weigher or other
competent official to take charge
of them. It can readily be seen
_that, with the knowledge furnished
by the provision which is already
law, as to the value of each grade,
that if each shipping point is fur
nished with a set of samples, the
farmer who comes to market to sell
is thoroughly equipped to protect
himself against being buncoed or
deceived as to what grade his cot
ton is and the value of that grade.
To illustrate, when a farmer comes
to market where there is a set of
standard samples, he can determine
himself what his grade is and not
be dependent upon the buyer to say
what the grade is. When the grade
bas been determined by comparison
with the government standard, the
farmer then can determine the val
ue of that grade by reference to the
government tests furnished him.
For instance, suppose the buyer
offers the producer a half cent or
three quarters of a cent less for his
low middling than for middling.
Suppose the fanner, by reference to
his bulletin finds that, according to
government tests, low middling for
manufacturing purposes is as valua
ble as middling. With this knowl
edge, he can demand the same price
for his low middling as he does for
middling and it would be up to him
whether he takes less or demands
the sam ?. In a word, he will be
in possession of all the knowledge
available in reference to the value
and the grade of his cotton that the
mill man and buyer has, and can
govern himseif accordingly.
In senator Smith's opinion, that
is the most important legislation
ever enacted in behalf of the colton
Senator Smith has re-introduced
and is pushing his bill looking to
the regulation of cotton exchanges.
This is the same measure that came
near passing at the last session of
congress. Briefly stated, th?8 bill
provides that in each and every
contract for the future delivery of
cotton the grade or grades contract
ed for shall be specifically named in
the contract, and such grade or
grades as are named shall be accord
ing to government standardization.
This will legalize the standardized
grades in interstate commerce and
give the sanction of law to ihe use
of the standard grades in every
