Issues of the Coming Cam
Enforcement of the laws, particu
larly the prohibition laws, is essential
to the security of the people of South
Craolina and they must elect a gov
ernor and sheriffs this year who will
show no mercy to bootleggers and
moonshiners. To do otherwise would
be to give up prohibition. To elect a
governor suspected of a friendly dis
position toward lawbreakers would be
to surrender to lawbreakers. Numer
ous crimes have been committed in
the last two years and the juries are
punishing them. If the people do not
have a governor who can be relied
upon to allow the sentences of juries
and <:ourts to stand, no home in South
Carolina will be safe. The women are
the home-makers and the nome-keep
The people must have reduction of
taxes. Further retrenchment in the
cosi of government is necssary. Use
less offices must be eliminated and
salaries cut to the point consistent to
obtaining efficient service. No great
reduction can be had in the state levy
merely by whittling down salaries.
All possible economies of this kind
would perhaps not lower the levy by
one mill. The people do not wish thc
common schools, the colleges or the
charitable institutions destroyed or
cr'ppled, nor will they deprive Con
federate veterans of pensions. To
meet the cost of these things the
heavy revenues are required. But the
burden of taxation on lands and
houses, though reduced from 12 to
seven mills, is still too great for the
times. The sole avenue of escape is
to tax other things than farms and
The World War and its causes re
main as issue in South Carolina. Had
the Democrats in 1876 elected an
enemy of the Southern cause govern
or, instead of Wade Hampton, Con
federate soldiers would not be rever
ed as heroes now. If our people had
voted that South Carolina wos misled
into secession by demagogues and
traitors, the state would never have
voted for Confederate pensions. To
the 25,000 and 30,000 young veter
ans of the World War the cause for
which they fought is and should be
as holy as was the cause of their
.. grandfathers in 1861. It is for them
to protect it from rebuke and dishon
or and they will.
Without the national Democratic
party the white civilization of the
South would be in perpetual danger.
To high offices in the state the people
* can not afford to elect others than
those whose party loyalty, national
and state, is not in question or under
suspicion. Able and patriotic Demo
crats who have never been accused of
flirting with the Republicans are
abundant. There will be no trouble to
find strong men who go to the polls
in November and vote for the Demo
cratic candidate from president to
coroner, who know that to do other
wise is to invite peril to every insti
tution of white civilization. Never,
for instance, was a Republican pres
ident or candidate who would not, if
he could abolish the separate coach
law. Staunch Democrats in this state
vote and speak for the Democratic
candidates, whether personally at
tracted to them or not, because they
know these things, because they know
that unless the Democratic party shall
be sustained in the nation, all that
they hold dear in the South will col
Those are plain issues of the cam
paign soon to begin in this state. To
sensible men they are not arguable.
Mother Skipton's Prophecy.
These lines were first pudlished in
England in 1445, before the discov
ery of America, and before any of
the discoveries and inventions men
tioned therein. All the events predic
dicted have come to pass except that
mentioned in the two last lines:
"Carriages without horse sshall go
And accidents fill the world with
Around the world thoughts shall fly
In the twinkling of an eye,
Waters shall yet more wonders do,
Now stranger, yet shall be true;
The world upside down shall be
.And gold be found at root of tree.
Through hills man shall ride
And no horse nor ass be at his side;
Under water man shall walk,
Shall ride, shall sleep, shall talk.
In the air men shall be seen
In white, in black, in green;
Iron in the water shall float
As easily as a wooden boat.
Gold shall be found mid stone
In a land that's now unknown;
Fire and water shall wonders do,
England shall at last admit a Jew.
And the world to an end shall come

Spring Management of Bees.
Clemson College, April 10. Have
your bees ready when the honey flow
begins: do not raise your bees on the
honey flow, but raise them for the
honey flow, is the advice of the
Extension bee specialist to the in
creasing number of farmers who are
As soon as the weather is warm
enough, the bees.should be examined
to determine, first if they have plen
ty of stores; second, whether they
have a good laying queen; third,
whether they have sufficient room.
If a queenless colony with a fail
ing queen that does not lay a suffi
cient number of eggs, is found, then
this colony should be united with an
other colony having a good queen.
Two colonies may be united as fol
Place the hive containing the weak
queenless colony over the hive con
taining a colony with a queen, put
ting a single sheet of newspaper be
tween the two. Of course this requir
es the removal of the bottom board
of one hive and the cover of the oth
er, so that nothing separates the
frames of the two hives except a
sheet of newspaper.
If the weak colony has brood, it is
best to shake the bees off the brood
frames into their own hive and put
the brood frames into the hive con
taining the queen before uniting, as
otherwise this brood may become
chilled. It is not necessary to leave
the weak hive above the other, and in
case of cold weather, it should be re
moved as soon as the bees accept
each other, which would be approxi
mately in twenty-four to forty-eight
The main causes leading to swarm
ing are lack of ventilation, lack of
space for the queen bee to lay eggs,
insufficient room for storing honey,
an over-abundance of drones, or a
queen bee that has become too old.
To prevent swarming, therefore,
these conditions must be avoided.
The queen alone is normally capable
of laying eggs, and for this reason
swarming is necessary to make new
colonies and perpetuate the race. The
old queen always comes out with the
Additional rooms can be furnished
by adding another super. An old
queen can be replaced by requeen
ing. Drones can be kept down by re
placing drone combs with worker
combs. Lack of room and. ventilation
are indicated by bees clustering on
the outside. Ventilation may be in
creased by putting thin cleats or
strips of wood at each corner of the
hive between the brood chamber and
the bottom board.

The people of South Carolina can
not afford to take chances.
The choice of a governor, of mem
bers of the General Assembly, of
sheriffs, of all officers, depends in
great measure on the choice of dele
gates to the county conventions.
Do you want prohibition enforced?
"Yes," is your answer.
Then you want the Democratic par
ty to be controlled by men and wo
men who BELIEVE IN THE EN
FORCEMENT of law.

ever the pretensions, whatever the
noisy outcries to the contrary, the

Acting upon the suggestion of the
State Highway Commission, thereby
putting Edgefield county in line with
the other counties of the state, we
have employed Mr. J. E. Mims to can
vas the county to apprehend owners
of automobiles who have not paid
the 1922 license. All who have not
purchased licenses will be given until
Friday, April 21, to do so. If they
have not secured a l;cense or have
not a receipt for a license, for each
car or truck owned, they will be dealt
with according to law. Mr. Mims will
assist any one now in securing a li
cense. All delinquents should heed
this notice, as the board of county
commissioners and the State High
