Push the County Fair.
In many counties of this and other
States people are gett'.ng ready for
their annual fairs. ' Pigs . are
'being fattened; bis scfuashes
are being carefully fed; house
wives are planning to make
prize butter or prize cake; horses
being put through their paces on
county roads and on practice tracks;
candidates are .busy arranging speak
ing dates, and business firms are
planning for the arrangement of ex
hibits. That is what che people of
this county must begin Co do at once,
so as the County Fair, which Is to
open on Tuesday, Nov. 14, will have
the benefit of their erhibits.
County Fairs are great educators,
and the one that will be held In this
county will learn us many new
things. County fairs bring to the far
mer the latest ideas in labor saving
farm machinery; it serves to make,
producers work for a high standard
of products; it introduces new and
successful varieties of cotton, corn
and vegetables, of grapes and fruit:
it glorifies the work of the farm, and
it brings farmers from remote dis
tricts into touch with each other,
greatly to their benefit. The social
and entertaining features of the coun
ty fair are important,' too. Aviators,
doing the latest aeronlaning "stunts"
visit these fairs, and many other won
derful things are shown at them.
The Times and Democrat believes in
County Fairs, and it wants to see our
first fair a grand success.
To that and let us all put our
shoulders to the wheel "and push the
Fair along It is posible to over
do local partriotism, but it seldom oc
curs. As a rule people are too in
different to the place in which they
live. In too many instances love of
ease or an unconscious selfishness In
terfere to prevent that enterprise and
in^cfentive to betterment without
which no comunity can flourish. A
pool which receives no supplies of
fresh water becomes stagnant and
dries up, and many a town has had
the same experience because its citi
zens had no public spirit. Opportun
ities for growing were neglected and
the result was death. Let us guard
against these pitfalls and work to
make Orangeburg the best town in
Few towns will grow without be
ing pushed by its people. The town
that grows without being pushed has
greater natural advantages than Or
angeburg, so if we wait our town to
expand and' become tt.e commercial,
educational and social centre of this
section each of us must do his or her
full share to make it so. In this land
there are places possessing great ad
vantages of location, -.rater power, or
natural resources that remain sleep
ing, decaying viliages because stupid
ity, narrowness of view and other
failings had and continue to have
the right of way. It is impossible to
make a live town with dead citizens.
Let us all reimember this, and work
for the County Fair. We know of
nothing that would help Orangeburg
What It Means.
In speaking of the Farmers' Free
List bill, which has passed both
Houses of Congress and now awaits
the action of President Taft, who
must either sign it or veto it, The
Charleston News and Courier says
"it means the entrance free from
duty, into this courtry of agricul
tural implements, cotton, bagging
cotton ties, leather, boots, and shoes
fence wire, salt, timber, lumber, sew
ing machines and other articles. Ad
mittance free of duty means lower
prices despite the contention of Re
publican organs to the contrary, and
the farmer will have before him a
practical demonstration of just what
the effect of high tariff duties on
The News and Courier goes on to
says that "President Taft has it in
his power through approval of this
bill to reduce the operating ex
penses of every farm in the United
States, and, therefore, to increase the
income of every farmer in the United
'States. There is a disposition to
trust him to do what is manifestly
the right thing. Will his advisers
be able to talk him into an opposite
course? We do not think it took
much talking to put Taft against the
bill, and. would be surprised if he
With all his pretensions to the
contrary, President Taft is a strong
friend of the pred~..ory interests in
this country that have for years been
preying on the peoph? and he will not
do anything to injure them if he
can helo it. The result of the elec
tions last fall scared him as well as
the predatory interests, and so they
agreed that something must be done
to appease the wrath of the people.
To do this they selected the Canad
ian reciprocty pae\ and they will
go no farther. Therefore we feel
sure that President Taft will veto
the Farmers' Free List Pill, or any
measure that may be passed for the
relief of the people by the Demo
Poor Innocent Men.
News comes from Pittsburg, Pa.,
that detective sarv working there
on what is believed to be the most
gigantic case of blackmailing by or
ganized gangs of pretty girls in the
histody of the country. Scores of the
wealthiest and most prominent men
in the western pan of Pennsylvania
are said to have been victimized. The
police are informed not less than
$?"00,000 has been paid out to the ad
These pretty young blackmailers
are said to have made a practice of
getting the names of men of promi
nence, prospective victims and then
by some means scrape acquaintance
with them. The men are fed entic
ing bait and in the human angling
that ensues they are led one step to
another until the progress of legal
intimacy slowly but surely approaches
the point where Illegality predom
inates. Then the poor, unsophisti
cated men paid up and looked hum

They Have Come , Again.
(Sometime ago it was heralded
[abroad that a sea -vorpent had been
I seen near some Northern watering
I place. Then followed a report that
a mermaid had been seen combing
her hair near some Southern water
ing place. It was not to be supposed
that with the rediscovery of the sea
serpent the mermaid would kep her
herself hidden and therefore it is not
surprising to learn that she has been
found stranded on a southern sea
beach. It was fitting and shows the
comendable impartiality of the dis
coverers that while the sea serpent
appeared near a northern wateing
place, the mermaid should come to
hand "down south." Hard-headed,
sceptical people will of course, refuse
to believe either story, but even the
most sceptical must admit that the
stories prove that summer hotel and
watering season has arrived. If, in
(spite of the torrid heat, some still
doubt the fact, the sea serpent and
the mermaid have set the matter be-1
yond all conjecture.
