"Would Deny Sims Readmit
tance to American Ports.
Washington, June 10.-A resolu
tion declaring Rear-Admiraal Sims
"ari undesirable alien" and denying
him readmittance to any American
port, was introduced in the house late
today by Representative Gallivan,
democrat of Massachusetts.
The resolution offered by Mr. Gal
livan referred to Rear-Admiral Sims
as "a foreign born citizen of the
United States, but now connected un
happily and unfortunately, with the
naval establishment of this country."
On other occasions, it added, he had
'publicly stated that in case of a war
between the United States and Great
Britain one British ship could easily
dispose of four or five American
ships -of corresponding type," and it
charged that "Sims has publicly de
preciated his superior officers in the
naval establishment and the charac
ter and quality of the governmennt of
Rear Admiral Sims and Ambassa
.der Harvey were described to day in
the senate by Senator Harrison, dem
ocrat, Mississippi, as "those two
"gold dust twins' who now represent
the government of the United States
Senator Harrison, author of the
. resolution adopted yesterday direct
ing the naval committee to investi
gate Admiral Sims' speech criticizing
Sinn Fein sympathizers, declared the
admnral's speech, and that of Mr.
Harvey at the Pilgrim's dinner, were
""an outrage to redblood Americans."
"I hope the senate committee will
secure the report that Secretary Den
ny has demanded from Admiral Sims" .
said Senator Harrison.
"I hope congress will take imme- ?
diate action if Secretary Denby fails
to do anything to him if he has quoted ,
Senator Harrison said that Admiral ,
Sims "ought to be got rid of from the ,
navy," if he was quoted accurately ?
and he also reiterated his demand for ,
Ambassador Harvey's "recall." j
Nothing that Secretary Denby had
called upon Admiral Sims for an exr "
planation within 24 hours, Senator
Harrison said that no official of the
government had taken similar action |
as to Ambassador Harvey. j
"He has not been called down by j
the president or the secretary of state
or any other official," said the sena- j

Sour Milk Good for Chickens <
It is a great mistake to let any (
.milk go to waste because it is sour, c
say specialists of the Agricultural i
Extension Division, University of
Florida. Such milk may be used in ^
numerous ways in the home, but, if
it is not desirable to use it there, ?
feed it to the chickens. They like it ,.
and will do well on it. J
Some farmers make a practice of ^
feeding sour milk to hogs, but great- ^
er returns may be had by feeding it ,
to chickens, for the flesh of chick- j
ens brings much more on the market j
than that of hogs. j
Milk and corn makes a good ration ^
for chickens. For best results, the ?
corn should be cracked and soaked
several hours in either sweet or sour ^
skimmilk or buttermilk. The corn J
may be put in pails in the morning
and the milk poured on until the
top of the corn is covered two or j
three inches. When this has been
absorbed, more should be added at
intervals during the day, and the ^
mixture will be excellent for feed
ing by night.
A liberal supply of this ration will 3
keep chickens growing rapidly and ^
insure their being constantly plump
and in excellent condition for the
market.-Farm and Ranch.
Why a Silo?
Hereare ten good reasons why a
silo should be kept on every farm
where livestock is kept:
1. The silo preserves the palata
bility and succulence of green crops
for winter feeding.. ?
2. It conserves the entire crop.
3. The silo increases the livestock
capacity on the farm.
4. Silage can be fed in summer
when pastures are short.
5. Silage is relished by dairy and
beef cattle ano> sheep.
6. It is digestible and aids in the
digestion of other feeds fed with it.
7. Silage reduces the cost of pro
duction of milk, beef and mutton.
8. It will increase the milk flow.
9.Silage promotes the health of
10. The silo provides an economi
cal method for the storage of rough

Watkins May Send Prohibi
tion Violators to Federal
Prison in Atlanta.
Anderson, June 8.-E. A. Whit
mire, veterinarian of Pelzer, was
sentenced this morning to serve a
year and a day in the federal prison
in Atlanta and pay a fine of $1,000
for violation of the Harrison nar
cotic law, after a motion for a new
trial had been overruled. Several
prominent men of Pelzer and the
surrounding community appeared
before Judge Watkins and asked the
leniency of the court, saying that
Whitmire was a respected citizen and
had never been in trouble like this
before. Whitmire protested ,saying
that he was innocent of the charges
and that he had not committed the of
fense with which he was charged.
Judge Watkins told the defendant
that he believed that he had suc
cumbed to temptation to make easy j
Virgil Nicholson and Bob Tannery
pleaded guilty to violation of the j
national prohibition law and were I
sentenced to five months in the Oco-J
nee jail or pay a fine of $300.
Judge Watkins said this morning
that in the future he may send all
violators of the prohibition law to I
the Atlanta penitentiary; that the
puninshment inflicted for such viola
tion is no to be luxurious nor is it
intended that the prisoner may be
remanded to a county jail near his J
home so that his people may visit
him, and that prisoners may be sent j
to the federal- prison for less than a
year and a day.
The absence from the jail oft Mas- j
ters and Shaw, two federal prisoners
in the county jail, was investigated
by Judge Watkins. While absent
Monday afternoon Masters was arrest
ad for getting in a fight. The sheriff J
stated that the jail was so full of pris
jners that he could not well take care
if all of them, and some were let out
is trusties. The judge stated that he J
ivould not send any more prisoners to
;he county jail.
Year's Wheat Crop Larger
Washington, June 8.-The coun
ty's combined winter and spring
ivheat crop promises to be 43,000,000
sushels larger than last year's, based
jn forecasts of production announced
?oday by.the department of agricul
;ure. There will be smaller crops of
pats, barley and hay than were har
/ested last year, while the apple
:rop will not be half so large as that
)f 1920 and the peach crop will be
nuch smaller than last year.
Winter wheat, which a month ago
promised a crop of 629,000,000 bush
es, came through May in bad shape
n several of the important producing
?tates and as a result the forecast of
production showed a reduction of 51,
)00,000 bushels, bringing the total to
;he same quantity as produced last
fear. Kansas, premier wheat state,
.eported a decline in the condition of
;he crop from 84 per cent of a nor
nal crop on May 1 to 60 on June 1,
vhich resulted in a reduction in that
.tate's forecast by 33,000,000 bush
?ls. In Nebraska the condition drop
ped from 92 to 75 and in Oklahoma
:rom 84 to 70.
The spring wheat crop forecast in
iicates 43,000,000 bushels more than
ast year's crop. The condition of the
:rop is better than a year ago, while
;he acreage is somewhat smaller than
An acre yield of 13.9 bushels is
forecast compared with 10.8 bushels
last year. ?
Better Than Forty Cents
In Sumter last Sunday, Trinity
church raised its quota, $20,000, for
the educational campaign of the
Southern Methodist church, and $500
besides. This amount was subscribed
by 140 of 450 persons to be can
The same morning the Methodist
church in Latta subscribed $12,600,
its quota being $12,5000, and of this
amount $1,800 was paid in cash.
A year ago these responses, quick
and generous to a great appeal for
educational funds, would have been
explained by the price of cotton, then
around 40 cents, and the prevailing
prosperity. No such explanation can
be offered now. It will have to be said
that in May 1921, the Methodists see
aright the great necessity and oppor
tunity of strengthening their col
leges and other schools so that they
shall be a better educated people.
Giving of a dollar now means two
or three times the sacrifice of lux
uries by the giver than it meant when
money was easy.
This spirit of the people, that the
Methodists exemplify, promises bet*
ter for the state and the country than

LARGER IMPORTS OF BUTTER
For First Seven Months of This Year
22,855,090 Pounds Shipped to
The record for butter imports es
tablished in 1919, when 9,519.368
pounds of butter and butter substi
tutes were brought into the United
States, was short lived. Following the
recent announcement of these impor
tant figures by the United States De
partment of .Agriculture the depart
ment has compiled reports for the
first seven months of this year which
show that the United States during
that period imported 22,855,090 pounds
of foreign butter, which is more
than ever before.
This remarkable increase Is at
tributed by foreign marketing experts
of the department's bureau of markets
largely to the foreign exchange situ
ation. With American dollars com
manding a premium throughout the
world it is obviously good business for
foreign butter manufacturers to sell
their product in the United States. For
eign manufacturers also have the ad
vantage of low cargo rates. Another
reason for the Increased Imports is
that whereas England was formerly
Denmark's principal butter outlet,
England can now purchase butter more
cheaply from Australia and Argen
tina. Ireland also Is producing but
ter on a larger scale.
The effect of the exchange situa
tion is also reflected In a decrease of
American butter exports. Thus. 15,
Federal Inspector Sampling Imported u
527,271 pounds of American butter
were exported during the first seven ?:
months of 1920, whereas 22,986,294 3J
pounds were sent out of the country si
during the corresponding period of o:
Imports of butter from Denmark a:
are being curtailed at present because w
the prices asked by the holders of Dan- ?
ish butter in storage here are higher
than the wholesale prices for the
American product, and some difficulty
is being experienced In moving the
Danish stock. *
CORRECTNESS OF SEPARATOR
Minnesota Farmer Discovered He Was
Losing 364 Pounds of Butterfat
Every 30 Days.
Defects in the separator will, In the
course of time, make heavy inroads on
the dairyman's receipts from butterfat.
For instance, the testing of skim milk
to ascertain how the separator is
working is not regarded important by
some dairymen. But in the case of |
one herd of 35 cows in Minnesota,
which produced 1,200 pounds of but
terfat last June, the skim milk was
tested and found to be carrying oft
364 pounds of real butterfat every 30
days. This is vouched for by L. V.
Wilson, agent In dairying for the Uni
ted States Department of Agriculture
with headquarters at University Farm.
"This farmer," says Mr. Wilson, "pur
chased a new separator the next day*
after the skim milk was tested. This
Incident ought to be a sufficient lesson
for prompting many others to deter
mine the accuracy of their separators."
PUNCTUALITY IS ESSENTIAL
Dairyman Should Be Regular About j
His Work With His Herd-Feed
Grain While Milking.
The dairyman should be punctual
and regular about his work, for not
only does the work itself depend on
lt, but the amount of milk the cow
will give as well. In feeding, ?lie
grain should be fed first and while lt
Is being consumed milking should be
done. Hay should be fed after milk
ing, for lt fills the air with dust
which carries Immense quantities of
mold and bacteria that will hasten
the spoiling of the milk If permitted
to enter it.
POOR SIRE DOES MUCH HARM
Thousands Pounds of Milk Per Year
ls Estimated Improvement Cred
ited to Purebred.
"A few poor cows may do little per
manent harm to a dairy herd but a
poor sire will do untold damage. One
thousand pounds of milk per year ls
a conservative estimate of the Improve
ment cf the daughter's production to
