THE Pl IO FIT ON TWO RALES.
The Atlanta Georgian, which is
carrying on a campaign for direct
marketing of crops too-op?rai ve
marketing I, carries Ibis interesting
little ?tory concerning Ibu .?"..'. profil
on I wo certain hales ol' cotton:
"One year ago .i Georgia farmer
took Iwo hales of cotton to the near
esl market town (Ibo roads were
pretty badi, and sold '.hem toa street
"A truck driver gave the buyer $7
profil on the deal, hauled tho two
l?ales twelve miles to a larger town
?ind sold them lo a dealer, making
u profil of $84. The dealer sold the
Cotton lo a list buyer in his town,
making aprofii of $12.
"Thus the cotton was sold four
times before it left the district In
which it was grown, and three men
who had nothing to do with grow
ing it made liberal profits.
"The prollt.s on three transactions
amounted to $53,
"Under tho co-operative market
ing plan, which tho Georgian has
urged for the farmers of Georgia,
and which is hoing carried imo ef
fect under the leadership of Charles
S. Barrett and other far-seeing Geor
gia patriots, that fifty-three dollars
of profit would go to the grower.
"There you have in a fow words
the essential reason why tho co-op
erative marketing plan is a good
thing for cotton.
* 'There you have the reason why
it is going to bo put into effoct In
Georgia, in time to assure tho farm
ers of Goorgiu a fair profit on their
product in tho year \'.r?2."
And if this is a good thing for the
tanners of Georgia, why not. for the
farmers of South Carolina-for the
farmers of Oconoo county, to come
down to a narrower scope of coun
try, and to a people tn whom wo aro
more directly and vitally interested?
What is the reason for--what is
the sense in- this multiplicity of
prollt-tukors? They cannot lie taken
Justly to task for taking a hand In
the marketing of the cotton crop. A
profit is what they are after; it is
all in the day's work, so to speak.
You would do the same thing in tho
circumstances; so would we. The
only one who seems or in the past
iii any rate has seemed utterly dis
interested in the matter is the farmer
who produces the cotton the in lt ll
who is most deeply i II I crested in the
returns of the cotton crop, and who
ought to have all the profil from th?:

Co-operative marketing is entirely
practical, ii is feasible, and ii is just
and reasonable, lt means simply the
elimination of useless cons in the
wheel that turns In the course of
t the business of putting colton out of
i the field and into the mills.
There should be steps taken all
over the South to put into effect the
co-operative marketing plan. Il will
work to the advantage of the co! ton
grower and certainly cannot work to
j the detriment of the ultimate user,
i lt is nothing more nor loss than the
: working out of a process of the ollm
. ination of waste--the practicing of
j legitimate and proper economy.
Gossett, of the Tugaloo Tribune,
states that be re?ut ly killed a snake,
I hung it up-and it rained. Friend
I Cossett should turn snake-hunter,
j and go into the ran-makng busness
i on a larger scale. The production of
i rain would, we believe, be more pro
litable than printing a newspaper. A
feature, too. that would be very at
tractive is the absence of necessity
for working capital, which ls cer
! tainly no' true of the newspaper busi
' ness to-day. One might enter the
' rain-making business with nothing
more than a good hoe or even a pro
perly fashioned stick of good pro
portions. And as a sido lino one
could hoe for tho farmers after the
rains had descended and brought out
an abundant crop of grass along with
the growing crops, There are possi
bilities in this rain-making business.

A Double Chicken and Thon What ?,
Black Duck Egg?,
Vos. that's Just what we said - j
black duck eggs. Not white eggs laid j
by a black duck, but eggs with bia :k :
sholls laid by a black duck. Wc do I
not vouch for the genuineness of tho
black or say that it was an idea orig- '
?nal with the duck. Dut wo bad in I
Tho Courier olllce last Wednesday j
three fresh duck eggs, and they were
black in color-that ls, one was real !
black, another a very, very dark gray I
and the third a sort of smoky-look
ing blueish-gray. Thus lt is evident
that the duck was Just starting np'
ber dye-works when sho laid this
batch or eggs, and wc sincerely hone,
that she will get all bor apparatus
in good working order soon, amt i
that our good friend, Silas N. Hu tts.
of the upper part of the county, will
bring the duck with bim the next
time he comes, so thia wo can see
her produce the black eggs, it ls au
old saying that "seeing is believing."
but after seeing theso black duck
eggs we are yet unconvinced n >t
that they were black eggs, nor even
that they were black duck eggs, nor
yet that they were perfectly frosh
for they got knocked off our desk
and WO bad to clean up about t full

Mr. Holts also asserts tba
sam? (lurk recen I ly laid au egK as
lilack as ibo blackest one of the ihre !
presented to us. and that on this
egg lhere was moro than merely a
black shell, for, delicately and per
fectly naced on ibo black hack
ground lhere was a perfect picture
of a duck, ?"his also, he assert-, was
tho work of i! n duck's internal dyo
phmt. (Mr Butts is authority for
this statement, not us.)
And here's why we say we can't
exactly subscribe to thc theory I hu I
the ?luck did the dyeing of those nice
black eggs: When we found time io
examine them more minutely than
by giving them the once-over with
our rather poor-visioned ?yes. we
moistened a spot on the shell of each j
of the three eggs, then scraped a bit,
and, presto-the shell was just as
nico and while as any ordinary white !
eggshell. If the old duck had done
this Job we believe sho would have
made it Indellible, and she would
have put the dye clear into the tex- ,
ture of the sholl. Dumb animals and
fowls have a way of doing things In
a real seien li tlc way when they go
at it. We have often seen colored
eggs-not Easter eggs, understand, !
but bird eggs-blue eggs, dark brown
eggs, and "freckle-faced" eggs, but
tho blue wouldn't wash off, nor the j
brown scrape away, nor yet could a
single "freckle" be removed from i
the eggshell surface. Wo believe our
good friend Silas was trying to push '
black eggs-. figuartively speaking,1
of course, down our throats and the ,
throats of others here. Bring us the j
duck, friend, and lot us see the en- ;
tire process of manufacture of these
black eggs. The fact that such a
thing is possible should he estab- '
llsbed beyond a quibble and all the
doubts of the most doubtful Doubt- ;
ihg Thomas should he removed.
A D?>ublo Chicken, Mut ire.
E. P. Callas, who lives in Walhalla |
at tho Victor-.Monaghan Company's
village brought us on the same day
a double chicken-two heads, two
tails, four wings, four legs. It was
genuine, beyond doubt, lt was in
a bottle large enough to permit one
to view the whole chick, lt had died
of course-notice, please, that wo

It was a miniature monstrosity. And
it was ono of a family of live. Mr.

DEATH OF MllS. E. I?. WOOD.
Aged Lady ?f Now Hopo .Section Has
Passed to Hor Howard.
Now Hope, July 6. - Special: A
great silence and a groat darkness
has come into the homo of Mrs. E.
P. Wood, tho angel of death having
entered and horno her spirit away.
A presence which was a light in tho
dwelling has gono out in the homo
to shine In that "home not made
with hands, eternal In the heavens."
Hod sent his angel Sunday morn
ing, .lune I f?tit, to hear her spirit to
its oternal home. Mrs. Wood had all
her lite keen an Inspiration to many.
For several months she had boen a
great sufferer, hut she never com
plained. She always took everything
cheerfully, without complaint, hut
rtither accepted her trials as tho
means of relining and the process of
separating tho dross from the pure
gold of her charming nature and lov
able character. In early life she gave
her life to Christ, and always made
it a practice to attend church ser
vices and do every duty cheerfully
and well, and to aid by ad i vee and
counsel those ti round her. Hy her
dentil there is left a vacancy in every
department of ber church. A bright
and happy lace is no longer to be
seen in its accustomed place, but in
our hearts and minds we have a pic
turc? ot' a lovely woman, now gone
lo ber sure reward. She was ready,
willing and anxious to go when th"
Lord called. She talked to th . people
and ber loved ones on many occa
sions about the Lord's calling for
her to come to her home above and
meei her lovell ones gone before.
Mrs. Wood had seen and endured
many hardships in her life and had
experienced many universities, but
she stood faithful and true through
all, praising (?od for thc; manifold
blessings that lie sent her.
Now thal she is gone wo cannot
say too much for ber; in fact, it
would be hard to praise too highly
the life of this good woman. She
lived not for self, but for others, and
to the glory of God. H. will be well
for those left beiilnd to emulate her
example and seek to fashion our
lives after the pattern she made, so
lovely and altogether beautiful.
Funeral services were conducted
at her church and the body laid to
rest by the side of her husband and
other loved ones of the family.
The sympathy of the entire com
munity goos out to the bereaved ones
in their sorrow. "Blessed are the
dead who die in the Lord."
QUESTION CLEARED UP
Walhalla Readers Can No Longer
Doubt the Evidence.
Again and again wo have read ot
strangers in distant towns who have
boen cured by this or that mediciue.
But Walhalla's pertinent question
has always been "Haa anyone here tn
Walhalla been cared?" The word of
a stranger living a hundred mlle*
away may bo true, but it cannot have
tho same weight with us as tho word
of our own cltiions, whom we know
and respect, and whose evidence we
oan so easily prove.

Britain's Great Salftr.
An admiral's sword, which had been
eurrendored to Nelson by the Spanish
admiral on board the San Josef after
the battle of St. Vincent, bas Just been
sold for about $25. The sword was
worth much more to Nelson, and to
Great Britain. For this victory of 17U7
is of peculiar significance in Britain's
naval history, lu that lt first revealed
the full capacity of Nelson already
well known In the navy to all his
countrymen, and led to his appoint
ment as rear admiral. , In this notion,
when the Spaniards seemed likely to
?-scape, Nelson, without walting for or
ders, threw his sldp. the Captain,
across their bows, n movement which
led to their complete defeat. Nelson
received the swords nf the Spanish of
ficers on the deck of the San Josef and
became at once a popular ligure.
