Beer Manufacture Ends in
Washington, Sept. 6.- Manufac
ture of beer in the United States will
be prohibited after next December 1
as a war measure.
This announcement was made to
night by the food administration,
which saki that thc decision had been
reached at conference between Pres
ident Wilson and representatives of
the fuel, food and railroad adminis
trations ami the war industries board.
Factors which influenced the deci
sion to prohibit the manufacture of
beer after December 1, the food ad
ministration announcement said, "the
further necessity of war industries
for the whole fuel productive capa
city of the country, thc considerable
drought which has materially affect
ed the supply of feeding stuff fer
next year, the strain upon transporta
tion to handle necessary industries
and the shortage of labor caused by
enlargement of the army program.
War',:"~ a:?o was issued to manu
facturers of all beverages and min
eral waters that for the same reasons
there will be "further curtailment"
in fuel for the manufacture cf glass
containers, of the plate for caps, of
transportation and focd products in
Under national prohibition legisla
' tion passed by the senate today and
sent to the house which enacted sim

of beer and wine would bc prohibited

move up five months the time for
discontinuance of the manufacture
of beer, although the breweries may
be allowed to resume operations be
tween that date and the effective op
eration of the "dry legislation" it
finally enacted, since today's orders
were "until further orders."

Mexican Cotton Boll Weevil
Making Invasion in State
and Doing Some Dam
Clemson College, Sept. 5.-The
Mexican cotton boll weevil has begun
seasonal migration and at this writ
ing it is distributed over practically
all of Jasper county and half of
The weevil entered Beaufort coun
ty some time last year, and owing to
the comparatively more favorable
conditions for wintering, the pest did
not receive a serious back set last
The present infestation in this
State is the result of a continued
eastward movement from year "to
year, and this invasion has been pre
dicted, although the time of the first
appearance could not be definitely
forecast. Part of Beaufort county is
seeing its second year of weevil in
festation and the injury in some
fields is already very serious. As a
rule, the weevil does practically no
injury the first year it appears. The
second year the injury is usually no
ticeable, while the third year enables
the weevil to get its full momentum;
and people who were convinced in
their own minds that the weevil
would not reach them or that it
would not do any serious damage,
will change their minds.
The weevil is firmly established in
the State. It is spreading.
From the conditions in the south
ern part of the State, in the light of
the experience further west planters
must expect serious weevil damage.
It will be a repetition of what has
occurred in other States and southern
South Carolina has no advantage in
climate or soil that will make the
sitution less serious.

Senate Fasses B?!? To Make Na
tion Cry. '
Washington, Sept. G.-The $12,
OOOjOOO emergency agriculutural ap
propriation bill with its rider for
national prohibition from next July
first uritii after the American
armies are demobilized after the end
of the war was passed tonight with
out a roii call. *
Before final passage of the-meas
ure, tbs senate voted, 45 to (>, to
retain the prohibition rider. A final
effort to postpone: the 'effective date
of the ."dry" legislation to December
30, 1919, was defeated. .
The bill now goes to the house,
and because '.of the many amend
ments inserted by the senate, it un
doubtedly will be sent to conference.
Prohibition leaders, however, expect
tlie house to agree to the "dry" rider
so that there will be no possibility
of changes being made by the senate
and house managers.
Senators voting against retaining
the "dry" legislation in the bill were
Brandegee of Connecticut, 'Gerry of
Rhode Island. Phelan of California,
Pomerene of Ohio, Ransdell of Louis
iana and Underwood of Alabama,
while it was annonced that many
members absent and paired favored
As returned to the house, the
prohibition clause-a compromise ef
fected last week by senate "wet" and
"dry" leaders-would stop the sale
of all intoxicating beverages next
June 30, except for export, medicin
al, sacramental and other purposes
and would prohibit the manufacture
after May 1 next.
iMost Important Part.
The compromise prohibition "ri
der" was regarded as the most im
portant provision of the emergency
.agricultural bill. It is a silbstituute
for that of Representative Randell of
?California adopted by the house last
: May prohibiting use of the bill's ap
propriations until the president
should exercise his',authority in the
food control law to stop manufac
ture of beer and wine as well as
'whiskey during the war as a food
After passage of the bill these sen
ate conferees-all regarded as friend
ly to the legislation-were appointed
being Gore of Oklahoma, Smith of
South Carolina, Smith of Georgia,
Kenyon of Iowa and France of Mary
Plow long the bill would be in con
ference was regarded duobtful. Pro
hibition advocates believe it soon
will go to the president who partici
pated in conferences culminating in
the s'enate compromise for extension
of the effective day. The war revenue
bill and house plans for a recess, im
mediately after its passage until
about October 15, however, were ad
Late Efforts Fail.
Eleventh hour efforts to extend the
time for manufacture of beer and
wine and disposal of stocks of intox
icating beverages proved futile, the
senate rejecting without a roll call
an amendment by Scntor Phelan of
California to make the provision ef
fective December 30, 1919.
The senate also defeated an effort

of distilled spirits remaining unsold

During the senate controversy, op
ponents of the bill-especially spokes
men for wine industries-declared it
will ruin many interests by not giving
them enough time to close up their
Prohibition leaders say that de
mobilization of troops may require
one or two years after the war con
tinuing operation of law certainly un
til after the spring of 1920 after
which they confidently expect the
national constitutional amendment
for prohibition will have been rati
fied by the States.
To avoid delaying action on the
prohibition measure Senator Gore
late today withdrew his amendment
proposing increase in the government

to $2.54 per bushel.
The late summer months are trying
on poultry. Those who recognize this
and provide comfortable places for
their fowls and feed them properly
will be rewarded sooner or later. Es
pecially should there be shade, water
and green feed these hot days.
Those who have one or more roost
ers "eating their heads off" should
consider disposing of them. Where
one has a very fine bird, one that
would be very hard to replace it
might be desirable to carry him over
till the breeding season. But this is
very expensive since feed is high. Be
sides, housing space is worth some
thing during winter. It is believed
that most poultry raisers could well
afford to dispose of their male birds
and buy young birds to begin with
next spring. .
Green feed is likely to bc very hard
to provide since the weather is quite
dry and hot in most localities. But
plans should be made to grow wheat
rye, oats, barley or emmer as soon as
fall rains permit. A little green food
will be worth much to the Hock when
grain is high and scarce.
Fowls get tired of one kind of food.
Even the best of grain will not satis
fy them from day to day. They crave
a change just as people crave a
