Farmers' Union Bureau
- Conducted by tho -
South Carolina Farmers' Educational
and Co Operative Union.
?ST Communications intruded for this
department abould be addressed to J. C.
Stribllog, Pwtdleton, 8. C.
Slate Farmers* Union.
Bear in mind the State Farmers'
Union will meet at 13 noon at Auder
son, S. C., Thursday, May 31st.
Our ?ndeisou County Farmers' Un
ion brethren aro a thorough-going,
lively! substantial and good looking
set of farmers. See to it that every
County in the Stato strives to send
even a botter representative body than
Anderson does. Anderson County
Union men can take care of a large
delegation from the State, and no doubt
a large delegation from every County
in tho State will make a fine show and
impression ior the good of the organi
zation in ' a Way; but for woodwork in
organizing a State Union aad, espe
cially formulating rules, constitution
and by-laway ust a few"of the best
businessmen in each County is a bet
ter working force than a largo number
of rattling, floundering position hunt
Don't forget that cliques, caucusses
and wirepullers are the prime disinte
grating mills that grind down tho
strength of any organization.
When you leave home for the State
Union prepare yourselves with your
best resolutions ' for the good of all
Union men, and at the same time pre
paro your temper to receive defeat like
a man with lots of manhood about him;
then it will bo easy for you to live up
with the majority for good to all.

The South Carolina branch of the
Farmers' Educational and Co-opera
tive Union's maia objects are to teach
farmers that one good farmer in any*
community is a power for good, and
that two good farmers united have
double the power for good that ono
farmer has, and that 100 farmers united
for good has 100 times more power than
100 farmer.*; not banded together, and
when you.extend, this calculation tc ,
half a million or more good Southe^

organization to teach Southern farmers
how to produc? profitable crops, but
you have in this santo organization the

Mr. Levor and Dairying ti
Washington, M ty 2.--Daring tho jj
discussion of au amendment, which at
was adopted, to the agricultural ap- m
propriation bill whereby $20,000 wcro J?
placed at the disposai of thc Secretary S,
of Agricuhuro to aid dairy develop- (\
ment in tho South, Mr. Lever, of South 0|
Carolina, said: g,
"Value of dairy products of thc Cui- n
tod Statos for thc year 1000 was over \
$000,000,000. This industry is, there- t]
fore, ono of the leading industries of v
thc country. It bas made the Central a
Non h western States enormously rich, v
and has added greatly to thc aggregate i
wealth of tho nation. Au investiga- j
tiou into thc subject brought my atteu- 'j
tton to the fact that in (.ho Soutb ibero y
was practically no development in this |
industry iu the last fifty years. |
It appears from figures that tbo ,
South must buy from Norther? and (
Western markets each yoar over 150,
000,000 pounds of butter, 03,000,000 j
pounds of ohecoo and millions of gal- ,
loos of milk. A conservative estimate
shows that tho Southern States are
annually contributing to markets oth
er . than their own tho enormous sum
of ?38,000,000 for butter and cheese
alone, produots which we have every
reason to believe oan bo raised at homo.
Thore oan be no good reason given why
the dairy industry Cannot bo built up
? in the S DU th. We have every natural
advantage in the mildness of our cli
mate and in tho oapaoity of our soil to
yield largo forage orops, and the rapid
ly increasing population of our cities,
the growth of our manufacturing inter
ests will consumo for many years the
entire products of oar dairy farm. It
seems thal tho i time is opportune
for launching this industry among our
people, especially when we take into
consideration this increasing demand
for dairy produots.
. ? understand the plan of the depart
ment is to employ a number of. dairy
experts who will work io oo-operation
with the Stato experiment stations
and with individual dairymen. They
will furnish to dairymen the cheapest
and best plans for the construction and
er?otioo of silos; they will teaoh him
the most economic methods of feeding
sod show him the value of bord soleo
oo; they will point out to him thc
!8t methods of manufacturing, band
og and marketing of bis products,
id put him in touoh with the best
arkets for the sale of the products,
hey will visit every dairyman iu tho
mth when requested and investigate
io conditions and peculiar problems
each establishment and olTer such
ingestions aud advice for improve
cut as bis experience has given bim.
'hat our peoplo need most to make
io dairy business a sucoess is expert
formation. Thia they have not had
id this it is that this appropriation ,
ould give to them. I am confident
lat on intelligent, aggressive, cam
;iign along these lines will succeed,
here oin bc no reason for a failure?
\To should so far develop this indus
ry as to at least supply our homo mor
els with their demand for dairy pro
ucts. If wo eau do this wc have sav
d to our people millions of dollars,
tub this is not all, if we ean lay the
oundation for tho building up of a
uooes?f ul dairy industry in the South,
re will eave to ourselves millions in
he way of fertiliser bills and add
iii Ho na to the value of our farm
iuds, whoso fertility will be enor
mously increased by the development
f this industry.-News and Courier*

before the oDgloe stopped. The ohild
was taken from under the train, and
was unconscious, but slightly brn^d,
