To Build Furey's ^ Ferry Road
Work will soon begin on the high
way from Martinez, Ga., to Furey's
Ferry, near Augusta, completion of
which will give an improved highway
for tourist travel from Asheville,
through Greenwood and McCormick
counties to Augusta. Tourist travel
over this route is already heavier
than usual, and the completion of
the Furry's Ferry road will deflect
still heavier tourist travel over this
road. The Augusta Chronicle says:
The highway from Martinez to
Furey's Ferry is now assured and
work on the road will begin as soon
as the state highway department re
ceives word from the government
saying that federal aid will be given
in the construction of this road. The
application has been forwarded and
a favorable reply is looked for in the
next few days. The actual survey of
the road has not been made, as the
state highway department engineer
Wm. G. Greenslade, i s awaiting gov
As^far as the city and county is
concerned their part of the building
expense is settled and they are ready
tomatchfunds with the government.
.Chairman M. C. B. Holley, County
Commissioner and a member of the
committee from the county, stated
last night that the county was ready
to appropriate its share at once. Dr.
J. M. Caldwell, chairman of the com
mittee from council and C. Vernon
Elliott, the other member of that
committee, stated yesterday that
they had been given the power to
act in the matter and that they were
ready to do it at once.
The cost of building the road will
be about $30,000. The government
is to appropriate $15,000 and the city
and county $7,000 each. The con
struction of the road will be done by
contract. The contract will be award
ed in Atlanta.
It is not known what route will
be used in the building of the road.
This is a matter for the surveyors
to decide, it is learned. It is very
probable that the shortest route to
the river will be used.
The building of this road will con
nect Augusta with the western part
of South Carolina and will afford a
modern highway to Asheville, N. C.,
a distance of about 150 miles. It
will not only afford the people of
that part of South Carolina a good
road to Augusta but the citizens of
Augusta as well will be given the op
portunity to travel over good roads
to Asheville.-Greenwood Index.
At the fruit store you will notice
that the big bunch of bananas is. us
ually hung with the fruit bending
downward. That position, we learn
from Mr. Philip K. Reynolds, who
writes in the Bulletin of the Pan
American Union;, is not the natural
position of the growing fruit. As the
single flower bud on the individual
banana plant increases in size it
bends downward; then the covering
bracts drop off and disclose the
young bananas, which point outward.
As they become larger they point
upward toward the sun.
Each banana plant-popi^'arly
but incorrectly called a tree-bears
only a single bunch of bananas,
which is made up of so-called
"hands," or clusters. The "hands"
grow separately in spirils, and each
contains from ten to twenty-five ba
nanas, or "fingers." Commercially
bananas are classed according to
"hands." A bunch that has less than
six is not readily marketable; the
standard bunch has nine or more
clusters and are classed as nine-hand
fruit. A nine hand bunch varies in
weight according to the variety of
the fruit and to the soil and to cli
mate conditions under which it is
grown; the average weight is from
fifty to seventy-five pounds. Occa
sionally you see a bunch that has as
many as twenty two "hands" and
more than three hundred bananas;
a bunch as large as that might weigh
approximately one hundred and fifty
When a bunch of bananas is cut
the individual plant is destroyed, but
the root is still able to send up
shoots. After the first crop of fruit
from two to five of the most prom
ising shoots are left to grow and sup
ply fruit later. Cutting out the ex
tra shoots is called pruning. As the
season of harvest is drawing near,
young plants are coming to maturity
to replace those that will have to be
cut down. There are areas where as
a result of a single planting the
plants have continued to produce
bananas for twenty years.-Youths

How Many Pigs Raised for
Each Cow Kept?
Clemson College, Aug. 28.-An
swer this question and you will come
nearer indicating whether you are
making money on hogs than you
could by answering any other ques
tion, perhaps. In other words the size
of litter raised has more to do with
reproduction costs than any other
factor, according to S. D. Sims, Ex
tension Swine specialist, who says
that it cost much more than half as
much to raise four pigs from one sow
than it does to raise eight from the
Summarizing some data from re
cords kept on some forty farms, it
was learned that on farms where
from 2 to 5 pigs were raised per sow,
the cost was $2.89 per pig as com
pared to $1.51 on farm raising 7 to
9 pigs per sow kept.
Some of the factors important to
insure large litters are given below.
With strict attention to these points,
little trouble should be experienced
in getting a good high average in
numbers per sow.
For breeding purposes only gilts
should be retained that are large,
long, smooth, of good type, with lots
of femininity and from large litters
farrowed by good producing, careful
Individual quarters should be pro
vided for each sow with daily change
of bedding just before and after far
The sow should be carefully fed
to prevent scours in the pigs.
Both sow and pigs should be for
jced to take plenty of exercise on
ground which has been cultivated
since hogs were on it the year pre
A good well balanced ration
should be fed at all times with some
good grazing crop for pasture.
An abundance of shade and pure
water should be provided.
The Scale of Living.
In all the arrangements of life
there is a certain appropriateness
that is well to observe out of respect
for ourselves as well as out of con
sideration for others. The extremes
of inadvertance in this regard are
obvious and ridiculous to everyone.
Only the foolish buy fur coats on a
salary of fifteen dollars a week, or
or?er a talking machine or a new
car on the installment plan when
they are not able to pay their doc
tor's bills. If your children have to
earn their living, as you have earn
ed yours, it is absurd for you and
cruel to them to bring them up as
if they were to inherit a fortune.
They and you will suffer for it in
the end, and the worst part of your
suffering will be that they will
The way to achieve a wise and
reasonable proportion between
means and ends, to see that what
you and your family have in one
line conforms to what you have in
another, that there is no startling
contrast between your expenditure
of one year and that of the next,
is to use forethought and system.
The most damaging, the most de
structive of all forms of human fi
nancing is to .spend because you
have. Your pay comes in, your min
ing stock yields an unexpected divi
dend: you go out in whirlwind of
glee, step around the corner, see a
wonderful bargain, something you
knew you needed but never thought
of buying, and the whirlwind has
swept away that pocketful of cash,
and there is still a little more to pay,
and you have no idea where it is
coming from. Your glee has vanish
ed with a pop, like a burst balloon.
Plan for your pay, what you will
do with it, what you ought to do
with it. Plan to put unexpected div
idends into the bank, and let the
wonderful bargains go. You won't
live in quite such whirlwinds of eith
er kind, but your life will be sane
and well regulated, and there will
be a pleasing completeness about it
such as is unknown to those who
spend by fits and starts.
At the same time there is a slav
ery to the scale of living that is as
much to be avoided as the neglect of
it. Independence is *he secret of hap
piness, perhaps more in matters of
money than in anything else. Do not
let anyone on earth dictate how you
shall spend. Have the things you
really enjoy; go without those you
don't, no matter who criticises. The
scale of living is set by the artifi
cial requirements of society. It is
well to recognize it, but not to be a
martyr to it. The measure of happi
ness is the adjustment of real wants
to actual means; and any scale that
does not allow for that is false and

Summerland Creamery Con
Clemson College, Aug. 28.-The
Summerland Creamery at Batesburg
continues to go strong. During July
the creamery received almost 12,000
pounds of cream, paying an average
price for the month of 35 cents a
pound for butter fat. All of this was
manufactured into butter, totaling
4000 pounds. So far this month, the
plant has made over 1000 pounds
per week, reports D. C Badger, Ex

done much to aid farmers in the
Batesburg territory to get started in

What Became of a Lie.
First, somebody told it,
Then the room wouldn't hold it,
Till they got it outside;
When the crowd came across it
And never once lost it
But tossed it and tossed it,
Till it grew long and wide
From a very small lie, sir,
Till it reached to the sky, sir,
And frightened the moon.
This lie brought forth others,
Dark sisters and'brothers
And fathers and mothers
A terrible crew.
And while headlong they hurried,
As lies always do,
And so evil bodied,
This monstrous lie goaded,
Till at last it exploded,
In smoke and in shame.
When from mud and from mire
The pieces flew higher
And hit the said liar
And killed his good name.

No kind of feed should be allow
?d to go to waste. When the corn is
not put into the silo or cut and
shocked, it should be gathered just
as soon as mature, so that livestock
may obtain the largest possible bene
fit from the pasture. It is foolish to
leave corn in the field until Novem
ber or December, as is often done.
Of course where velvet beans or
some late-maturing variety of cow
peas are planted in the corn, it may
be necessary to wait until rather late
to harvest the crop.
