THE CORNER STORE
Edgefield, South Carolina gig
Farmer's Institute at Cleora.
Several years ago the most prc
fcressive farmers of the Cleora set
tion organized an agricultural clul
and held -their first summer insti
tute, inviting some of nie Clemsoi
professors to address them. These
meetings have been held each sue
ceediug year with increased attend
ance and greatly increased interest
The third or fourth annual meeting
?was held Thursdiy, the attendance
being about double that of lasi
year. The Brunson school hooise, at
which the institutes are held, is lo
cated on the Martin Town road be
tween Mr. Walter Brunson's and
Mr. Chris Williams' and is easilv
reached from every section.
The first speaker of the day was
Mr. W. W. Fuller, the county su
perintendent of education, who was
requested to make a short address
in order to ai ouse greater interest
in the erection of a new school
building. He urged the patrons of
the school to begin the erection of
the new building at once, stating
that the State and county would
provide half of the necessary
amount of money. He also stated
that a citizen of the community
could subscribe to the building
fund, say $10, and contribute labor
or hauling to that amount.
Siuce Thursday we have learned
that the work of p rovid in g adequate
school facilities for the Brimson
school vi ill begin at once. Much of
the material is now on the ground
and the remainder will be delivered
as soon as needed. It is the purpose
of the patrons to have the new
building ready for the opening of
the next session of the school.
Mrs. Dora D. Walker followed
Mr. Fuller, making a very earnest
and practical talk for half an hour.
She presented the work of the to
mat/j clubs, following it from the
small beginning live years ago with
bb girls up to the present time,
there being now more tb3ti 9,U0u
girl? engaired in this special work.
Mrs. Walker explained how the
girls are taught the culture of veg
etables and their value as a food,
how they are taught scientific can
ning and also book-keeping ic or
dei to keep a record of the actual
cosi of their finished product. Mrs.
Wa ker also spoke at length of
many doca^tic problems, labor
saving dtvices and SUpplviog
water for th*1 kitchen. Her instruc
tive talk was well received.
Prof Calvin o? Clemson college
spoke upon livestock. He stated
that pork and cattle can be as
cheaply produced in South Carolina
as anywhere in the world. He
referred to the very superior quality
of some beef cattle that was raised
near Ninety Six last year and sold
on the Greenwood market for fancy
prices, Baltimore and New York ,
buyers being eager for them. Prof j
Calvin said it is useless to even
think of raising livestock without '
first providing adequate and cheap M
feed. Ile urged the improvement of I ]
pastures, ridiculing the idea that a
man can put a fence around a piece
of worn-out land and call it a pas
ture, expecting stock to thrive on
it. Pastures must be sodded in
grasa and given constant attention.
Prof Calvin stated that the people
of South Carolina eat more meat
and produce less meat per capita
than any other people in the world.
Being asked what progress is being
made m the eradication of cattle
ticks in? this State, Prof Calvin
said that within two and a half
years the counties free from ticks
have increased from 14 to 28 and
that in two more years it is thought
the State will be entirely free from
them. In illustrating how farmers
can change with profit from all cot
ton to stock with profit, Prof Cal
vin referred to the shipments of
cattle from Mississippi. Before the
boll weevil reached that section
about 3,500 cattle were shipped
yearly to the St. Louis market and
after the weevil had curtailed the
cotton acreage the shipment of cat
tle to St. Louis alone reached 152,
000 per year.
Col E J Watson, the commission
er of agriculture, was the last
speaker. He spoke in a light and
humorous vein for about 15 minutes,
adopting this means of awaking
and arousing his hearers. After this
pleasing digression, he entered upon
a practical talk of more than an
hour to the farmers present. Ile
predicted the coming of the boll
weevil and urged farmers to be
ready. He pointed out the great
need of diversification, instead of
being entirely dependent upon cot
ton. He stressed the folly of buy
ing high-priced mineral nitrogen
when it can be put in the soil by
leguminous crops. Nature has
stored in the soil all the elements
of plane fuod. We need to so
treat the soil as to render this food
available. Col Watson gave lig
ares to show tbat the farmers of
South Carolina have been burdened
with too great a fertilizer debt. He
is not opposed to the proper use of
commercial fertilizers. He also re
ferred to the enormous sums that
are being sent west for grain, hay
and livestock- His address was
practical and was weU received by
At the close, of Col Watson's ad
dress dinner was served, the money
realized from the dinner will be
added to the school fund- The
splendid barbecue dinner was cook
si by Mr Robert Moultrie, who can
Bot be surpassed. He is a veteran
^hef who bas won laurels in the
past- Mr Moultrie worked faith
fully to help the good people of*
Mleora in making this feature of
heir institute a success.
Col Alvin Etheredge spoke in the
ifternoon but the writer had to
eave for Edgefield before he began
lis address. He always speak along
tactical and helpful lines. After
lis addre33 all repaired to Cleor a'*
base ball park, where a good game
of ball was played between Roper's
and Cleora, the score being 6 to 8,
