Our attention has been called to
the fact that there is a rumor in cir
culation in some sections of the coun
ty, and in adjoining countier;, to the
effect that the Orangeburg County
Fair has been postponed until next
year. We wish to correct this state
ment by saying that the directors of
the Fair Association have bought
twenty-two acres of land within the
corporate limits of the city, have giv
en out contracts for the erection of
suitable buildings for half v.ile race
track, and barns, stables, etc. ' They
have also given out qoutraot for
premium list, containing something
like eight hundred premium a for ex
hibits covering all departments of an
Agricultural and Mechanical Fair.

FIFTY MILLION MORTGAGE.
Recorded by Clerk of Conn SaUey?
Another Big One.
Several days ago Clerk of Court
Salley recorded a mortgage for ? 50,-1
000,000. The mortgage was given
by the Southern Bell Telephone Co.,
to the Bankers' Trust Co., of New
York. The mortgage will cover the
improvements made in the Southern
Bell system recently. As this mort
gage has to be recorded in every
county where the telephone company
does business at a cost of about $60,
it can easily be seen that the South
ern Bell Telephone Co., must spend
an immense amount in having the
mortgage recorded alone. '
Speaking of this mortgage, which
is of course, unusually large, caused
Clerk of Court Bailey to look back In
his books and it was found that a
$200,000,000 mortgage was filed in
the latter part of 1909. It was given
by the Atlantic Coast Line Railway
Co. to the United States Trust Co.,
and is the largest mortgage ever filed
in Orangeburg county.

His plan is this. He wants different

with these having been signed the
Columbia Chamber of Commerce
will secure the necessary money.

be called for, but if there la a deficit

Meeting of Farmer's Union.
A special meeting of the Orange
burg County Farmers Union has been
called for Tuesday, August 29, at
11 o'clock, a. m. at the Court House,
by the President. Every member of
the Union, whether a delegate or

as there are several matters of the
greatest Importance to be considered. I
DROUGHT WAS GENERAL
RAINFALL WAS DEFICIENT IN
NEARLY ALL STATES.
South Carolina and Kansas Had the
Biggest Decrease in Reinfall Dur
ing ti?e Year.
Frederick J. Haskins, who dis
cusses most intelligently and enter
tainingly various subjects in many
newspapers says although copious
rains in the past few weeks have re
stored the parched vegetation of the
farms of the United States, the sum
mer of 1911 will be long remember
ed as a season of widespread and un
precedented drought. In other years
there have been more severe droughts
in certain sections of the country, but
this year the rainfall was far below
normal in the early summer in nearly
all of the states. The rainfall in
1918 was generally below normal
also, and the resultant shortage in
the stock of moisture caused the
drought to be even more injurious
to crops than usual.
It is a remarkable feature of the
American agricultural resources that
even a general drought, following a
period of low rainfall in previous
years, 'has not brought a threat of
famine. The greatest damage has
been to garden truck, potatoes and
other vegetables requiring a great
deal of rain. The grain crops, other
than corn, escaped because the
drought came too late to hurt them,
and the rains came again in time to
save the greater part of the corn
crop. Nevertheless, many localities
have suffered great loss and the cost
of living will be influenced by the
For some reason, which has not
yet been ascertained by any scient
ist, the average rainfall throughout
the whole country has been diminish
ing during the past ten years. Wheth
er or not this decrease is likely to be
permanent no one can tell. At var
ious times, since the existence of the
United State weather bureau, the
amount of rainfall has increased or
decreased in different parts of the
country, causing the chart indicat
ing it to present a wavelike appear
ance. There is twelve inches differ
ence between the maximum rainfall
of the country as recorded and that
of 1910, and according to the present
indications this year will increase the
difference of precipitation which is
already greatly below any previous
Former droughts have, in most
cases, been confined to one or
two sections of the country, but this
year it prevailed throughout the en
tire United States, with the excep
tion of a few isolated localities where
the rainfall has been a little about
The greatest droughts on record
this summer, as measured by the de
crease in rainfall, are in South Caro
lina and Kansas, where during June
and July the precipitation has- been
32 to 38 per cent, below normal. The
normal rainfall throughout the coun
try ha? been estimated by the United
States weather bureau at 29 inches,
and the area is divided in this re
spect into the following classifica
tions: Deserts or arid lands, 10 in
ches per year; semi-arid or light
rains, 20 to 25 inches; moderate, 25
to 50 Inches; copious, 50 to 75 inch
es, and excessive, about 75 inches.
A rainfall of less than 18 inches
precludes ordinary agriculture ex
cepting by the aid of irrigation. In
some localities the dry farming of
certain crops overcomes the difficulty
of scant moisture to a large extent.
Dry farming is really "good farming"
In the highest possible utilization of
every natural advantage. ThlB is one
of the means by which the depart
ment of agriculture expects to keep
up the standards of crops throughout
the country, even though the rainfall
should continue to decrease as it has
during the past decade.
According to the latest record the
United States has less than six per
cent, of its area in the excessive rain
fall class, exceeding 75 inches an
nually. Sixteen per cent ranges from
50 to 75 inches, 25 per cent from 25
to 50 inches, 30 per cent from 16 to
25 inches and 20 per cent less than
10 inches. It is upon these figures
that the normal average of 29 inches
ptr annum is based.
The measuring of rainfall through
out the United States is made by
means of careful tests at each of the
200 observation stations of the wea
ther bureau. Carefully constructed
'rain guages are supplied by which the
I rain Is collected continually and
I measured and estimated for the sur
face of that particular lr-ca?ity. Ia
speaking of the rainfall of the coun
try the signification is that the
amount of water which falls would,
if collected, at once, reach the num
ber of inches shown during the year.
Irrigation is advancing to a de
gree which indicates that in some
sections of the country the farmer
will be absolutely independent of
seasonal rainfalls, although at pres
ent it is not depended upon to any
appreciable degree for the most es
sential crops. In the sections where
irrigation prevails, there has been no
scarcity of water this year, despite
the decrease'' rainfalls because it
happens that the heavy snowfalls last
winter provided a sufficient amount
of water for this season. If such a
drought as is now prevailing through
out the country should follow upon a
winter in which the snowfall had
been light, there might he a scarcity
of water for supplying- the irrigation
plants even where they are well es

Story of Their Success With School
Children in England.
Philanthropists and others who
have been identified with the project
to provide food for those school
children, who through force of cir
cumstances, might otherwise often go
hungry, will read with Interest of the
success that has greeted a similar
movement to feed the children of the
poor in England. Not only were
free meals provided in cases of school
children actually needing food, but
records were kept to determine how
much good the extra feeding was do
The report, shows that the first
gain an ill-fed child makes on being
properly fed is often in height. There
was also a satisfactorily Increase in
weight, although this increase was
not in proportion to the increase in
height. The youngsters, after being
properly fed for a week or so, be
came better scholars. They seemed
to take more interest in their lessons
and they gave the teachers far less
trouble than formerly.
In dealing with the report the Lan
cet says that encouragment should
bo given to the plan of the feeding of
ili-fed school children, since there
has already been proof that such
feeding results in a rapid gain in
height and a gain in weight.
Tampered With Water Supply.
The St. Matthews correspondent of
The State says: "This place came
near being found with a water fa
mine on hand Monday. Some time
Sunday night, some person opened a
valve at the power house and about
one-half of the reserve supply of wat
er had escaped before the leak was
detected by Superintendent t\f. H.
Banks. Fortunately no demand for
an extra supply of water was made
while '.he supply was curtailed, and
as the deficit was promptly made up
by immediate pumping. Nobody knew
of how close they came to be wanting
for water. Every effort will be made
to find the culprit who thus played
with the people's safety, and when
found will be severely dealt with.

Lawyers are useful men. They are

enlightened lands. Orangeburg Is
proud of her lawyers, who are as
sharp and shrewd as any. But, as
an exchange says, even lawyers some
times meet their match in witnesses.
"Which way did the stairs run," ask
ed a lawyer of a witness. "That de
