Equal Pay For Women.
In the struggle for equal pay with
men for equal service rendered, the
women are about to win all along
the line. Director General McAdoo
has issued an order directing that
where women are in the employment
of railroads they shall receive the
same compensation as men who are
doing the same class of work. . If
this be done in the name of justice
for women employed by railroads,
why should it not apply to other
enterprises or lines of business? In
time it will come. Women will de
mand it and in ninety-nine cases
out of a hundred what women per
sistently demand they secure.
Dairying in the South.
It is doubtless somewhat inoppor
tune or out of order to agitate after
the-war constructive work of any
kind, as the supreme need of the hour
is a concentration of all our energy
and all our forces upon winning the
war. But as supplying nutritious
food of any and every kind is part
and parcel of our war-winning cam
paign, it will be in order to urge
greater attention to dairying in this
section. The establishment of cream
eries in different parts of the State
and in adjoining States afford an
outlet for dairy products that are
not consumed locally . The establish
ment of cheese factories also in sev
eral sections of the State, under the
direction of Clemson's extension
work, should further stimulate dairy
ing in South Carolina.
We have been accustomed to be
lieving that creameries and dairying
on a considerable scale were profit
able only in northern and western
States. Such an impression is erro
neous. Dairying can be made profit
able in South Carolina. The record
for the largest yield of milk and but
ter by any cow south of the Mason
and Dixon line was recently made
by a cow that is owned by a dairy
near Columbia. This cow produced
17,217 pounds of milk, with a yield
of 866 pounds of butter-fat in 12
months. Much of the foodstuff that
is used in the large dairies of the
north and west is shipped from the
cotton belt. Then, why should not
the leading dairy type cows be
brought or bred here and made profit
able? It can bc done. For a time the
war has eclipsed the boll weevil, but
we rather suspect that after the
smoke of battle shall have cleared
away in Europe and our armies
shall have returned victorious from
the scene of the conflict, the farmers
of this part, of the South will have
another enemy to vanquish in the
form of the pesky little weevil. In
stead of our people fighting the en
emy en masse, each individual will
have to conduct the warfare alone,
or as conditions upon the farm direct.
Farmers who begin now to give in
creased attention to stock raising,
dairying, etc., will triumph in the
struggle. Better begin now in a small
way to diversify.
increment of Fine Young Men.
In response to Call No. 374 from
.he Provost Marshall General, the
.ocal board sent a fine body of young
men to Camp Jackson Saturday
morning. A's provided in the mobili
zation regulations, the young men
were ordered to report to the office
of the local board Friday afternoon
at 6 o'clock. The roll was called and
the squad organized b*y placing Mr.
B. F. Adams of Colliers in charge.
After hearing appropriate remarks
from the members of the board, the
embryonic soldiers were given leave
until Saturday morning at 6:15 when
they assembled again to be entrained.
A number of the young men were
given permission to spend the night
at home in Edgefieid or with rela
tives residing near the town. Those
who desired to stay at the hotel were
provided for by the local board at
the government's expense.
Lieut. Bartlett, a very courteous
young artillery officer from Camp
Jaskson, arrived in Edgefieid Friday
morning to receive the men' and ac
company them to camp.
At the station Saturday morning
just before the men were entrained
Hon. J. William Thurmond address
ed the young men very briefly after
the roll call. A large number of rel
atives and friends gathered at the
station to bid them good-bye.

Saturday was composed of the fol

Mr. John B. Mathews, one of Edge

The editor of The Advertiser de
sires to place a tribute upon the last
resting place of this saintly man
who for more than half a century
has been a tower of strength to the
Sweetwater church and community
by his Godly walk and conversation.
He was as guileless and as free from
the contaminating influences of the
world as any man we ever knew,
being indeed a living apostle of Je
sus Christ who was known and read
of all men as an humble, consistent
follower of his Lord. His devotion
to every duty that was placed upon
him by the*church and his unceasing
attention to the cemetery near the
church called forth the admiration
and sincere "Well Done" of every
body. We believe that he has entered
upon that eternal rest that is provid
ed for those who are faithful during
their earthly sojourn.
Loafing Negroes Unwilling to
Accept Regular Work.
The following from the Augusta
Chronicle of Monday shows how dis
gusted a northern man became with
the loafing class of negroes, this be
ing his first experience with them :
H. G. Peterman, sales organizer
for one of the big chain store con
cerns of the country, with a branch
in Auguste, is disgusted with the la
bor situation, as applying to the
worthless colored contingent of Au
gusta. He has come from New York
for a few days trying to get his lo
cal situation in shipshape, so to
speak, and among other things he
advertised for a colored man, not
afraid to work, stating that good sal
aries would be paid.
Thc advertisement in The Chron
icle brought forth half a dozen appli
cants for a "position" and Mr. Peter
man recited the duties that would be
?xpected after advising them that
the stipend would be satisfactory,
but he wanted it understood he want
ed a regular worker.
One by one the applicants eased
away until five were gone and only
one lone man stood, apparently,
"Pm glad to see you sticking,"
said Mr. Peterman, "and I want to
really thank you for sticking by."
To his amazement the last of the
"Boss, you'se mistaken, I don't
want the job."
"Then what are you sitting down
here for, waiting?" inquired Mr. Pe
"'Cause, boss, Pse jes' natu'ly ti
red, and I wants to rest."
While it was Mr. Petermah's first
experience in such trying circum
stances,, he at least made one of the
applicants hustle for a short time
