If farmers do not 'ru:o care of them

A Good Move.
Clemson College, through the aid of
the government, will at once proceed to
establish at Clemson Espen mont Sta
tion a department of animal in^ istry
for the puipose of improving nt dis
seminating the best types of stock in
the State suited for tho general use of
our farmers. This is a very important
step in the right direction, and, if car
riod ont to completion in a practical
way, will do an immense work toward
encouraging stock raising and con
sequent diversification of our farm
This idea of sending out knowledge
of improved ideas of breeding im
proved stock over the State will en
courage farmers1 eons to remain upon
the farm. ClemBon now bas two hun
dred and fifteen etudents in the agri
cultural class. When these boys have
finished their training for agricultural
pnrsaits, the national government ia
ready to .forpieh these progressive
yonng men with further aid in the way
of-literature and seeds of the new plant
breeding work. Then why not the
State complete thia work by planting
the golden hoofs of the best breeds of
stock over the State?
. Under this new impetus along the
line of progressive farming at Clemson
wo have a bright prospect ahead for
our lamiera' sons. These golden hoof B,
improved seeds and. implements in
the hands of Well-trained minds of
South. Carolina's own soho we hope
will write out upon tba State's own
soii a creditable reputation that all
may be proud of.
Cow Peas**'!flOculaiiug With Nitrogen
There is no more interesting ques
tion before the progressive Southern
farmero today than the enriching of
their lands by growing cow- peas for
grain and bay, and, at tho same time,
storing an immense amount of nitro
gen in the Eoil for future erong, lea.
pedal! v t iman crops that require largo
amounts of nitrogen. One farmer lu
Alabama last year, it is stated, cleared
80,000 on a 400 acre farm of poor land
by pro wi n g cow n?os for. hay. while
the laud will produce rally double the
crops this year that tbe land produced
before cow peas were, grown ?nit.
Last season, at eonsTderahlo ?spense
and labor? wo inoculated About eight
acree ot cow peas with Dr. Moore's
nitrogen fixing bacteria, altsmhties
with uninoculated plate, but found

lionize the whole Southern farming
syatetu if tho farmers would take hold
of thia BVBtem with half the energy
they display in growing cotton. Pro
fessor 0. L. Newman, of the Agricul

recognized best autbotity on tho cow
pea m this country. He grew nt Clem
son last aenaeu over eighty different
varieties and hus nt other times crown
over twenty varieties of the soga bean,
and we trust that tho board of trustees
of Clemson will continue to encourage
Profeuor Newman in this very impor
tant work ot' improving the cow pea.

Killed While Turkey Hunting.
Georgetown, April 21.-A very re
grettable accident ocourred in this
oouuty early yesterday morning in the
killing of Mr. J. B. Buuoh by Mr. D.
T. Allen, while turkey hunting. Both
men aro prosperous farmers living only
a few miles from town.
Notwithstanding thc fact that tho
game laws prohibit tho shooting of tur
keys in this county after April 1st,
both Mr. Bunch and Mr. Allen went
cut early and took positions in some
thick wenda whero turkey signs had
bden Been tho day before Each mau
waa totally unaware of tho proBcncc
of tho other. Eaoh b<3gan yelping to
draw tho turkeys with gunshot, and
so truo waa tho imitation that each
man supposed the other a turkey. The
real turkeys aleo rospondod to tho
sounds and approached tho hunters,
when Mr. Allen, seeing a movement
and an indistinct objoot through tho
leavos, which ho thought WUB surely a
turkey gobbler raisod his gun and fired.
What was his horror to seo Mr. Bunch
riso from the log on which ho was sit
ting and fall baokward. Mr. Allen
rushed to the sido of tho wounded man
and asked if he was much hurt. Mr.
Bunch replied that he was not only
hurt, but was a doad man, and expired
within a few minutes. The load of
turkey shot had onterod his chest and
pierced bis heart.
Mr. Bunoh was a quiet, unobtrusive
and industrious Oitizen and waa high
ly esteemed by all who knew him. His
untimely death is a matter of universal
regrot. Ho was 40 years of ago and
has been married seveiai times. His
last wife, who was Miss Mary Harrol
son, and quite a young woman, was a
bride of only a few months.
Mr. Allen is cvoroomo with remorse
at the terrible result of his mistake.
He and Mr. Bunoh had always been
the bust of friends and were near
neighbors. Mr. Allen is an elderly
man, probably 60 years of age, and his
mistake was caused largely by failing
