St. Petersburg, Florida, the
I am still in this beautiful city by
the sea, having been here nearly two
months. The Yankees are leaving by
droves to their homes up North, but
quite a number will remain for the
summer. This is a live city. ,
I took a trip to Clear Water the
other day, the. county site of Pinellis
county, situated on the banks of the
Gulf of Mexico, one of the prettiest
towns I have seen, with a population
of 5,000 people. It is forty miles
from St.Petersburg and a great re
sort for boating, fishing and bathing.
It is a sight to stand on the beach
and look at the rolling billows as they
beat against the beach. One not be
ing used to the waves would think
that they were going to wash them
off, but God has set a bound. Thus
far they can come and nc further.
From Clear Water or from the gulf
on the west one can travel one hun
dred and fifty miles east on a brick
paved road without a jolt, and as far
as the vision can reach from right
to left, you see nothing but orange
groves, just as you see cotton and
corn fields in Carolina, and often you
will see a grove from ten to forty
acres laden with golden fruit. Gener
ally the trees stand from fifteen to
twenty feet apart, the limbs touch
ing the ground. They range from sev
en to ten feet high and almost as
round as a ball. They are the pret
tiest trees that grow in Florida. They
are cultivated well, using the disc
harrow thirteen and a half feet and
go twice to the row every ten days.
I was told that they could go over
forty acres a day.
You see no corn fields and very
few truck farms here, nothing much
but tropical fruits. This is their mon
ey crop. The natives live mostly on
loaf bread, rice and grits, as they
call it, Irish and sweet potatoes. Beef,
bacon and fish are their meats, and ar
tesian and sulphur water their drink.
Now, if you will listen, I will tell
you a big fish story. I take it from the
St. Petersburg Times: A king fish
weighing more than 35 pounds leaped
from the bay over the rail of the
municipal pier, Wednesday after
noon, landing in the middle of the
pier, according to a Mr. 'Duley, 757
Fifth street, South, driving along
the pier in his automobile saw the
big fish in its 30-foot leap-from the
water on to the pier. Its tail had
been clipped off by a larger fish and
was still bleeding when it landed on
the pier, so said Mr. Duley. It is sup
posed that a big shark was telling him
good morning. Early in the season a
king fish jumped on the .pier at the
end, but Wednesday was the first
time one jumped over the rail. Mr.
Duley said he got the fish. Now, I did
not see this fish, but the king fish is
very game. I have seen them jump
ten feet out of the water, but' not
30 on the pier. This statement I clip
from the St. Petersburg Times, and
I take Mr. Duley to be a truthful
man, and you know that an editor
never publishes anything but what is
In my next I will try to give you
a description of the Silver Spring and
the Ochlamaha River. This is said to
be' the most beautiful river in all
Florida. The Spring is six miles from
Ocala. One has to see this Spring and
the Ochlamaha river to realize its
power and appreciate its beauty.
Mr. Editor, according to my think
ing, the United States is the greatest
republic on earth, and South Carolina
is the best state in the union, and
Edgefield is the best county in the
I say this, not that I love Caesar
less, but I love Rome more.

"Sub Rosa" Frats Are Being
Certain, students of the University
of South Carolina face suspension,"
expulsion or other punishment at the
hands of the university faculty as a
result of the announcement made to
the student body yesterday morning
by President W. S. Currell to the ef
fect that "drastic action" would be
taken by the faculty against all stu
dents found guilty of participating
in the activities of Greek letter fra
ternities during the current collegi
ate year in violation of the state
The faculty has begun a thorough
investigation of the existence . of so
called "sub rosa" fraternities at the
institution. Dr. Currell's announce
ment coming as the opening gun in
the campaign. Punishment , which
under the by-laws of the university
ranges fronr admonition by an of
ficial of the institution to public ex
pulsion, will be meted out,.Dr. Cur
rell said, to all students who have
been initiated into fraternities dur
ing the session and to all members
of fraternities, even though they
joined the fraternities at other in
stitutions, who have in any way par- '
ticipated in fraternity activities on
the university campus this year. A
lighted . sentence was promised all
students involved in case they should
voluntarily confess their violation of
the - anti-fraterhity regulations, 5
o'clock next Tuesday afternoon be
ing fixed as the last hour in which
such confessions would be accepted.
All students guilty of violation of
the rule during the session were ad
I vised and urged to confess their
wrongdoing, Dr. Currell said, adding
that he did not desire to impose
the "supreme penalty" unless forced
to do so.
Dr. Currell in his short address
to the student body read letters from .
the national officers of the four fra-]
ternities suspected of having chap
ters on the campus, stating that
these " four had no. charter on the
campus at present, the fraternities"!
pledging their assistance in prevent
ing the re-establishment of chapters
until the law should be changed,
two of the fraternities reported that
their charters had not been held by
any men on the campus this year.- j

Poultry Industry Paragraphs.
The Poultry Industry is one of
America's most important ' enterpris
es, producing $1,250,000,000 in
The Poultry industry supports
many industries entirely and con
tributes largely to the support of j
Imports of eggs and egg products
increased from $1,577,47- in 1914 to
$16,268,293 in 1920 based on import
It is setimated that over $600,000-1
000 worth of grain and grain prod
ucts are consumed annually.
Present estimated number of ma
ture poultry, 300,000,000 head, j
Estimated number of poultry rear
ed in 1919 600,000,000 head, (see
note.) . j
Estimated number of eggs produc
ed in 1919, 1,957,000,000 dozen,
Note : From estimates by the Unit
ed States Department of Agriculture.
The poultry producing industry is
nation-wide in its scope. For many
years it was an. adjunct to general
farming. No attention was paid to
the cost of production of poultry and
eggs, the housewife keeping a flock
from which she derived certain mon
ies when fowls produced a surplus

qf? eggs above the family needs, this,
season being the natural, time -for
fowls to rear their young. For many
years no account was kept of either
the cost or amount of wealth pro
duced. Poultry and eggs were then
largely by-products. Poultry farming
has now become an extensive and in
tensive commercial industry which
occupies the entire time of. skilled
poultry men as their principal, or
only source of income.
The large grain growing section
of the Middle West is the home of
the farm flock which contributes ap
proximately one-third of the poultry]
and eggs produced in this country.
In many sections North,South, East
and West, large commercial poultry
enterprises are developed. In many
specially favored sections, due' to
sources of food supply, marketing,
and climatic conditions, the indus? ?
try has developed to such a degree
that it is the dominant industry of
the region. One of these . regions, as
an example, confined within a radius
of less than eight miles, produced]
and shipped in 1920 22,223,923 doz
ens of eggs having a value to the far
mer of over $11,000,000, and pr?r
-duced and shipped over 2,000,00Q|
head of poultry. Within this area are
kept more than 2,000,000 hens.
