Cotton observed by tho writer all
along the way to Columbia recently
looked worse, if anything, than cot

ties. It seemed that much land was
abandoned, and many weeds flour

to have been very general over a
great part of the cotton belt.
shall Oconee Have a Fair?
?It seems that all near-by counties
have county falrB, and with the groat
diversity of agriculture possible In
Oconee, that we should have one
also. Agriculture will be more di
versified than ever with tho coming
of the boll weevil, and that is one
of tho strong points about fairs
the actual products of the region
may ho SEEN BY ALL.
If action on the matter of having
a fair is taken in time there aro plen
ty of products for exhibition.
J. S. Abbott, of Walhalla Route 1,
has done some wonderful breeding
work, and has a fine stallion to ex
Coke S. Campbell, of Seneca Route
2, has a fino herd of registered Hol

good on exhibition.

cows, a pure-bred bull, pure-bred
hogs, pure-bred chickens, and possi
bly tho hound dogs are pure-bred.
.Many other farmers in the county
have fine pure-bred animals and also
some wonderful crops to exhibit.
WI 11 OH TOWN will work for the
fair? There should bo a building
guaranteed tho exhibitors, suitable
livestock pavilions or arrangements,
and a guaranty of sufficient prizes to
bc awarded winners in each depart
In Hie matter of amusement there
might ho a foot-hall game arranged.
A carnival may not be needed, as
there may not bo that much extra
money to spend this fall.
Gt*OWS Fino Strawberries.
K. 1). McDonald, of Richland, ls
probably ono of the most successful
Strawberry growers in this section
Of the State. Ho states that last year
ho gathered $80.00 worth of the lus
cious rod berries from' one-eighth of
an aero, mu} ho will continuo ga Ul
eling this year's crop until frost,
The variety planted is a rare one, re
sulting from n cross between a Can

larmer living near Easley. The va
nt ly is now called the "Harrison
Karly." Somo vines were observed
lnsl week that would produce about
a-(tuart apiece during tho week, and
they had already boen hearing about
eighty days, Mr.McDonald slated, Ile

On grapes and apples Bordeaux
mixture should be used, the formula
being 4-4-50, or in smaller quanti
ties 1-1-12%, meaning one pound of
quicklime, one pound of bluestone,
12% gallons of water. The lime and
bluestone are gradually dissolved
with one-half to one gallon of water
each, and then diluted separately to
6 M gallons apiece, then poured to
gether nt the same timo into a third
vessel, stirring vigorously. Wooden
or earthen vessels should bo used.
The bluestone will dissolve better
in warm water suspended in a sack.
Do You Want Peas?
Those persons wishing to buy some
Clay peas now for sowing may group
orders through the County Agent at
a saving. A farmer in Alabama has
several hundred bushels for sale at
M*0 ^??e?fehelv -The freight -willi
be'about 30 cents per ?bushel, ma*k-i
lng the delivered cost about $1.80
per bushell. Any 1 person wanting |
these peas should make check pay
able to "Cowpeas Account," Bank of
Walhalla, enclosing check with or
der for the full amount. 'This should
bo done at once. More peas should
be sown this year than ever before.
Many Cans Ordered.
There should be no scarcity of
canned foodstuffs in Oconee county
next year, judging by the fact that
a Westminster dealer recently order
ed 40,000 cans-a solid carload
to supply the canners' of the county.
If these cans aro all used there
should be a smaller amount of money
to send out of the county next year
for canned foodstuff.

that in an examination held recently
