Southern Hog Raiser.
Some of our readers seem to
think because the price of hogs is
at present based, on the price of
corn in the so-called Corn Belt, that
the Southern hog raiser is placed at
a disadvantage. It is true that corn
prices are" higher in the South than
in the North, because we grow less
than we use and have to ship corn
into the South anrl -^ay the hand
ling and freight costs. It is also true
that hog prices are fixed' in the
North and that many hogs marketed
from the South, especially in the
Mississippi Valley, are shipped to
Northern markets. These facts ap
pear to lead color to the impression
that the higher price of corn in the
South places the Southern hog-rais
er at a disad"?mtage, but it is not
true on the whole, nor to the extent
which these facts would at first sight
appear to mrlicate.
It is important that we at once tho
roughly appreciate this fact that we
cannot compete with the North in
hog production if the feed is to be
chiefly or largely corn. The two rea
sons are plain : first, we grow too lit
tle corn for our own use and must
buy corn; and, second, our average
yields of corn per acre are too small
as compared with Northern corn
But all these facts do not necessa
rily place us at a disadvantage in hog
production as compared with the
Corn Belt farmer. We-only remain
at a disadvantage so long as we con
tinue to believe that corn is the only
hog feed and refuse or fail to make
use of other crops and other advan
tages which we possess over the Nor
thern hog producer.
Of course, there are many who yet
believe that corn, as the regular and
principal feed of hogs, is a necessity
and that hogs without corn are like
religion without charity, "you don't
have any." But fortunately large
numbers have learned better, and
still others are rapidly learning that
hogs can be profitably raised on other
crops which do well in the South,
with only a small amount of corn or
other purchased feed.
If our other feeds, like peanuts,
Soy beans, cow-peas, velvet beans,
sweet potatoes, fall and winter graz
ing crops and legume pastures, pro
duce pork more economically than it
is produced on corn as the principal
feed, and we contend that it has
been proved that they do, then the
higher the price of corn goes the bet
ter it is for the Southern hog-produ
cer, so long as the price of hogs is
based -on the price of corn and he
grows his hogs on these cheaper feeds
instead of on corn.
We do not advise any Southern
farmer to raise hogs if he feeds them
on corn exclusively or chiefly, but if
he will provide a "proper rotation of
the cheaper crops we have mentioned
and use a minimum of cottonseed
meal and corn, he can produce hogs
cheaper than they are produced in
the so-called corn-hog belt.-Progres
Honor to the Memory of Press

To: Mr. Pressly Doolittle, Modoc S. C.

State of South Carolina
At no time in the history of our
country has the menace of j fire been
greater and the preservation of our
resources more necessary. Activities
of hostile incendiaries threaten in
many parts of the country, causing
destruction of needed supplies of
foodstuffs and other vital staples.
These fires will strike at the founda
tion of national power and wealth
by the elimination of resources.
Fire causes direct destruction of
cotton, lumber, grain and other food
stuffs, as well as a large variety of
other materials essential to the pros
ecution of the war. Fire cripples pro
ductive industry engaged upon war
orders to a far greater extent than is
While causing a vast impairment
in American's fighting efficiency, fire
loss is, in the main, unnecessary. The
loss can be materially lessened if
each citizen will do his part towards
seeing that precautionary measures
are adopte J for his premises. The
burning of your property . through
negligence or carelessness may not
only cause you loss and inconveni
ence, but the fire may spread to. your
neighbor's1 property also. Fire pre
vention, therefore, becomes a patri
otic duty of every citizen. The coop
eration of newspapers, civic bodies,
and particularly school systems, will
contribute powerfully to this end. The
annual loss by fire to the state of
South Carolina is approximately One
Million, Two Hundred and Fifty
In view of the importance of the
matter, and as a means of arousing
our citizens to the magnitude of the
fire waste and induce them to take
more interest in the subject of fire
prevention, I, Richard I. Manning,
Governor of the State, by virtue of
authority in me vested, do hereby
designate and proclaim
Saturday, November 2, 1918
FIRE PREVENTION DAY
and urge that on this day all citizens
inspect their property and give per
sonal attention to the removal there
from of all rubbish and debris; that
chimneys, flues and heating appara
tus be put in order ; that the mayor of
each town and city by proclamation
ask the cooperation of its citizens in
having a thorough inspection of all
premises in their respective munici
palities, to the end that the number
of fires piay be lessened and the loss
es therefrom checked.
In testimony whereof I have here
unto set my hand and caused the
great seal of the State of South Caro
lina to be affixed at Columbia on
this the twenty-third day of October,
in the year of our Lord nineteen hun
dred and eighteen.
