Advises Against Long Staple
David R. Coker, of Hartsville,
President of the South Carolina
>Mant Breeders' Association, in his
annual address before the meeting
of the Association here, advised
against planting long staple cot
ton next season except in sections
of the State where the marketing
facilities are good.
"The growers of lon? staple cot
ton have been unable to interest the
.cotton buyers to the extent of crea
ting a steady and uniform market
done all ? oould to second Presi
dent Dabbs, of the Farmers' Union,
in his efforts to better the niarket
ing conditions. I believe a proper
system of warehouses would great
ly h n-fit the stap'e cotton rnirket.
"Un'ess we o va oh inge preterit
inirke.'ingcon luions, I believe that
farmers should stop planting staple
cotton and go back to short staple
?cotton, where they are not favora
bly located as regards markets."
Plans For Building.
We are delighted to see that th?
United Sutes Department of Agri
?culture is preparing to furnish farm
?rs plans for building farm resi
dences and tenant louses. It is a
sad but truthful statement that nine
tenths of our farm houses are neither
so attractive in appearance nor so
convenient in arrangement as tiley
ought to be, contd iering the amount
of money spent on them. This i
-due to the frtct tint the larmer fre
quently builds from his own plans
and simply lacks architectural know
ledge. Ile also laeks a knowledge
of the value and ail vantages of cer
tain interior arrangements, which
the accumulated experience of thou
sands of people has taught the ar
chitect. Oui readers v> ho are think
ing of building any sort of farm
residence would do well to write the

culture, Washington, D. C , for the

Disease Spread by Public
We all make fun of germs, the
danger of lrinking from the same
cup or glass, and all that, but there
is something in it. Here is an au
thenticated instance rather clo-?e to
horne A woman and her little girl
were coming from Tennessee to
Jamestown on a visit. On the train
was another wont in with a small
child. One of the women had a
drinking cup, the other not. Occu
pying seats not far apart, the two
women soon were on more or less
familiar terms. Both children drank
from the same cup. One was not
well by any means, but it was not
known from what she was suffering.
Arriving at Jamestown one of the
women alighted and went to the
home of a fiiend. Inside of a day
ber little child was taken violently
ill with diphtheria and died in three
days. County physician Jones was
notified and has since discovered
that, the little girl on the train har!
diphtheria, thus showing conda
sivelv that the dispar was oommu
tiieated from the drinking enp. The
ohild that di*?d was perfeotly well
when it left, Tennpsspp and was well
whpn it arrived at Jamestown, hut
diphthpria phowpd itself the next
dav and was swift in its work.

The Thornwell Orphanage.
This institution located in Clin
ton, S- C., is for the education of
deserving orphan children and for
none other, and only for those who
are unable to pay their own
expenses. It costs the Institu

nf a child, which sum is pro
vided by the generous Chris
tian public. The young people are
not letrally bound to tbe Institution
and are received as into any other
school, the Orphanage not having
any right to distribute them In
families. They live in cottages of
about 20 to the cottage, there being
at present fifteen such cottages. The
training is literary, technical, do
mestic and moral. No child is re
ceived under six years of aire. As
soon as received he is at once entered
into school, in which they continue
for 14grades, graduating at about
20 years of age. Tbe course is a
thorough one. In the mechanical
cb'par ments, tho training includes
printing, carpentering, farming,
machine work, steam laundry vork
and all the domestic arts. There
are nuw 300 pupils, requiring $32,
OOOayear to meei expenses. It. is
wonderful how, by the goodness of
