Commissioner ot Agriculture H.
Harria sends us tho following com
munication relative to the purchase
of seeds of v.uious kinds for plant
ing in our state, in his letter accom
panying this information, Mr. Farris
takes occasion lo say: "it has bean
noled by the department that quite
a number of merchants and others
buying grain for seed purposes have
had considerable trouble In securing
grain of good quality and good ger
mination. Some of tho merchants in
this State have bought grain for seed
purposes, but it was tJoL tagged as
seed, uoither did thoir Invoices state
:'*, and after planting it was fourni
thal tho grain was a poor quality.
Tho matter was usually taken up
with tho shippers, who stated Hie
grain was not tagged seed, neither
was it sold for seed, and under tho
Stato law thoro was no way in which
to protect the buyer.''
Mr. Harris's advice and caution i^o
seed purchasers aro os follows:
'.The Department of Agriculture,
Commerce and Industries of South
Carolina wishes lo warn all mer
chants, farmers and others that every
precaution should be taken In pur
chasing oats, wheat, rye and other
grains for fall planting. When any
grain ls bought for seod purposes,
tho buyer should seo that all tags at
'.ached to tho seed, as well as tho In
voice, should stato plainly that lt ls
for seed purposes. An inspector will
bo sent to any one upon request to
draw an official sample to test for
germination, and this should be done
when the seed is received and before
"In the past it has been found that
quite a number of merchants and
others who bought oats, wheat, rye
and other grains tor seed purposes,
planted it and later found thc ger
mination was poor. Quite a lot of
thc grain was bought for seed pur
poses, but the shipper failed to brand
it as sueh. and when it was found
that the germination was not of the
best, the matter w;is taken up with
the shippers, and their reply was that
it was not branded or sold for seed
purposes, There is a Stato law re
quiring all grain sold for seed pur
poses to be taggod as such, and thc
germination must bo good."
The purchase of seed grain, and
oilier seeds as well, ls a very Im
portant matter, and too much caro
conant bo exercisod in buying, lt ls
nothing but right that every buyer
of seeds for planting should avail
hin self of the protection that tho
law gives him. lt is morely exercis
ing common sense and availing one's
self of tho benefit of tho State's vig
ilance in regard to an essential lo
successful tanning or growing of any

way would be decidedly in order.
Look to it. friond Halton; it's up to
you. Tho condition of the whole
road is gradually getting worse, and
unless something is dono soon-lt
will not take a great deal of work
the road is going to go really bad
rapidly. Remember thc old adage,
"A stitch In time saves nine." Let's
seo something done p. d, q. to keep
this highway in shape. It is a piece
of work that deserves the very best
* * *
The work of ditch-digging for tho
water mains ls progressing rapidly,
and the main street of Walhalla is
in a deplorable condition, owing to
this work and tho fact that nothing
19 being done on the north side of
Main street, where, so far as 'ho
construction company is concerned,
tho work is finished. Why not give
a little attention and work on. that
side of tho street, and thus mako at
least one side passable boforo .the
long rains set In. And .then, too,
what about the streets on which no
sewer or water pipes will be put
j down? A Hule work on these streets
which citizens arc being compelled to
use. being shut off from tho main
i streets, would not be amiss. Let's
i think about this matter. Wo realize,
j ist a? fully as any one, thal tho
streets of Walhalla are going to be
I more or less torn up for some timo |
to come, but the convenience of tho
entire population can bo materially
?added to by just a llttlo work now
and then. Our City Council might
woll give this matter serious consid
* * ?
And then we might Jab a pin Into
our fi lends down Seneca way. The
red. rocky hill leading into that town
from the Wnlhalla-SCneca highway,
j has long needed attention. Wo judge?,
? that this ls Seneca's business, but we
j do not know this to bo a fact. Fact
is, however, that it ls somebody's
business ?and it isn't being attended
to. If you have ever taken the side
degree dubbed "The Rocky Road to
Joricho" you can take it over again
nt any lime you may wish by simply
making the trip into Soneca ovor
that red hill. It nooda work worso
than any place In Oconce county, so
