SIX PER CENT TARE
FARMERS SHOULD INSIST ON IT
AS TH MR RIGHTS.
United States :>enator E. D. Smltft
Gives Some < lood Advice to Cotton
The Times a: id Democrat has often
told the farmers they were sleeping
on their rights if they failed to get
six per cent tai e on their cotton, and
we are glad to ?ee that Senator E. D.
Smith has take a up the matter. In an
interview with the Progressive Far
mer Senator Sraith said:
"A commer? ial bale of cotton is
reckoned at ive hundred pounds,
including bafglng and ties. The
price of cotton is always fixed in ref
erence to this tare. A bale weigh
ing 500 poundi, is allowed by the ex
changes to cairy 30 pounds of bag
ging and ties. That is 30 pounds
are deducted > >r discounted in the
world's price ior cotton. So that, if
lees than thirt r pounds is placed on
the bale the si Inner gains. If more,
be loses. if more than thirty
pounds is put m a 500 weight bale,
the farmer gah ts. If less, the farmer
"In a word, 6 per cent is deducted
Irom the indiv [dual bale, if only one
is bought, or from the aggregate
weight of the lot if a number of bales
are brought. Therefore if the farmer
puts less than 6 per cent of bagging
and ties in th-s gross weight of- the
bale he loses whatever difference
there may be To illustrate: Sup
pose his bale veighs 500 pounds, and
be only puts ; 2 peounds of bagging
and ties on ttat bale. He not only
loses the 22 pounds of bagging and
ties, but eight pounds of his cotton
"In order that the farmers may
?understand this whole proposition,
the wihole thin ? can be summed up in
one word: Tl at no matter what the
buyers in flxlig the price in the
great center? of trade have fixed It
-ripon -the basi i that six per cent of
the entire weight of all the cotton
"tfcey buy is de lucted for tare
'"In my ow:i State the law is as
" Section 1. It shall be unlawful
for any person, firm or corporation,
engaged in tie business of buying
cotton in this State, as principal or
agent, to dedoct any sum for bag
ging and ties .rom the weight of any
bale of cotton when the weight of the
bagging and les does not exceed 6
per cent of gross weight of such
bale of cotton In the event that the
weight of the bagging and the ties
exceeds six' >er cent of the gross
weight of said bale of cotton, only the
excess over tt e said six per cent may
" 'Section '!. For each and every
violation of this act the offender
shall be guilt;1 of a misdemeanor and
shall be finec" in the sum of not less
than $5.00 ncr more than $25.00, or
Imprisoned n >t less th anetnse.af'to
imprisoned n Dt less than ten days
nor sure thai thirty days: Provided,
this act shal not apply to what is
known in the trade as round bales,
and bales of cotton which weigh less
than 300 pounds'
"I think th * has finally settled the
question in rry state of the conten
tion of ceral'. buyers in reference
to how much bagging and ties shall
go on the bal c And I would heartily
recommend tl e passage of such a law
In every cott? n growing State.
"In view o * the fact that the pur
chasers of practically all other com
modities pa ' for all the process
through whlih those commodities
pass in becoming perfected for the
market, it d>es seem that the far
mer should Dot he required to lose
any more ttan the mere covering
that protects the cotton.
"When the farmer goes to buy a
shirt made out of cotton that he
grew, he pays for the price of the cot
on that hat into that shirt, the
freight that moved it from his plat
form to the mill where it was con
verted into .he shirt He pays the
commission < r the salary of the pur
chaser of th i raw cotton. He pays
for the machinery, for the operative
and all the commissions in handling
it the wages and salaries of all those
through whese hands is passes; for
the paper and boxes in whioh it is
packed; the freight back to the re
tail store; clnrk hire, insurance, com
mission and profit incidental tc its
handling unt 1 it come into his hands.
In a word h ; repats, he pays all the
cost incidem to the manufacture of
that shirt f-om the time the cotton
leaves the fi >ld until he buys it in the
form of the finished article All ex
penses are added to it. And yet
when he sei s his cotton all expenses
are deductec from it. And the costs
of handling his cotton, insurance,
freight, and 6 per cent for tare are
deducted. This rule is so established
that the cor tract for the export cot
ton are called 'C. I. F. & 6' contracts.
"In those States where hey have
no law on t<ie subject I do not think
that the buyers have any right to in
sist that les: than 6 per cent shall be
put on the ^ale in the form of bag
ging and tits, and certainly the far-;
mers in the li.?ht of their own inter- j
est should l ot put on less"

Judge Prince Orders City to Interpose
Answer in Twenty Days.
According to a decinee received
by Clerk of Court Salley the City
of Orangeburg through its attorney
must interpose an answer in the next
twenty days in the case of Kennle
BradwelL vs. the City of Orangeburg.
This case is an important one?the
father of the boy suing the city for
$2,000 for injuries received from
contact from a live wire while walk
ing on the public streets of the city.
The City contended that as the
wire striking the buy belonged to the
telephon - company, and not to the
city, that the telephone company and
rot the city was responsible for the
damage afflicted. This, Judge Prince
did not uphold, declaring that the
wire of the telephone company hav
ing been in connection with the city
electric wires long enough for the
city to have been informed and have
had the wires fixed, and that The
city was responsible for the injury
A had Death.
On last Thursday afternoon Au
gust 24, death entered the home of
Mr. and Mrs. E. J. Rickenbaker and
claimed as its victims their grand
son, Laurie. He was about four
teen years of age. His death was the
result of a case of malignant malaria
fever, from winch he was a sufcrer
only a few days.
It is a mystery to realize that one
so young and fair has been called to
go up higher, but his death is only
another link to draw our hearts from
earth to Heaven. His parents pre
ceeded him to the better land a few
years ago. He is survived by one
sister and a brother and other rela
tives who have the sympathy of alii
in their bereavement.
He will be sadly misspc in the
home but may the loved ones have
the sweet assurance that he has gone
to that bright, happy world where
there is no more parting and where
sorrow is unknown.
His body was laid to rest in Jerico
cemetary in the presence of many
relatives and friends. A Friend.
SHIP ALMOST SIMS
CLYDE STEAMER "APACHE" AR
RIVES SAFE IN PORT.
Wind Came Near Driving Ship on
Rocks While Passengers Wearing
Life-Preservers Were Waiting.
Plunging toward- apparent destruc
tion on the beach of Hunting Island
in the midst of the hurricane that
swept the Carolina coast on Sunday
night and Monday, the Clyde liner
Apache, with 125 passengers aboard
was opportunely saved by a sudden
change in the wind and came into
Charleston harbor Tuesday morning
badly wrecked by wind and sea, but
not seriously damaged. For a tense
five minutes the passengers of the
Apache stood on the lower deck with
life preservers around their bodies
waiting for the vessel to strike and
determined to make a grim fight for
their lives. '*
Driven along by & wind the speed
of which' was estimated by Capt.
William Staples of the liner at 100
miles an hour, the big steamer found
herself helpless about 1:30 o'clock
on Monday afternoon. She was bound
south' from New York and had been
blown past the mouth of the harbor
to a point off Hunting Island. The
gale swept in shore and its force was
irresistible. Full speed ahead into
the teeth of the storm could not
drive the liner forward and when two
anchors were put over board the
chains snapped like cords.
Helpless in the grasp of the huri
cane, the ship was being literally
hurled towards the Hunting Island
breakers, and the passengers, with
life preservers on, had well nigh
given up hope when the wind
shifted and the vessel was saved.
Capt. Staples told a vivid story:
"Prom a terrible wind which threat
ened momentarily our destruction,
we had entered as calm a sea as ever
"But the calm lasted only a few
minutes. Twenty minutes later the
wind struck us with greater force
than ever and the barometer began
falling. The wind was from the south
east and I believe must have been;
blowing at the rate of 100 miles an
hour. At Hunting Island we ran a
close race with death. To go toward
land meant destruction, but the wind
was too strong and we had no option
but to be blown to the landward.
Sudenly aibout two p. m. the wind
shifted from the southeast to the
south and give a chance to head
[eastward and get off Into deep wa
I F. J. Doherty, wireless operator of
the Apache, stated that the wind
blew the vessel a distance of about
75 miles. "We came near Hunting
Island, 1 o'clock Monday afternoon,
where some of the crew sighted what
may have been a ship in distress.
The passengers of the Apache had on
life preservers. They seemed o un7
derstand that death was staring them
In the face, but they remained calm.
Just at the time wfaen the end seemed
to be at hand, the wind shifted."
Passengers of the Apache drew up
resolutions expressing their thanks
to Capt. Staples and his officers and
crew and appointed a committee to]
present, to the Captain, officers and
crew a loving cup. A number of pas
sengers on the vessel sustained se
vere bruises during the storm. The
damage to the Apache consists of the
loss of her anchors and soaking of
every parto f the ship, including all
her apartments, in sea water.
TWO KILLINGS SATURDAY.
Negro Kills With Baseball Bat and
On Saturday there were two kill
ings in this county. During a base
hall game Saturday afternoon near
Ruples a negro named Garner struck
another named Dwlght over the head
with a 'baseball bat, knocking him
senseless. The injured negro was
taken to Bowman, where he died
sometime after. Gardner was ar
rested and lodged In jail%
The other affray took place on the
place of Mr. Jeff Ashe in the Fork.
Abram Parier, having become enrag
ed with his daughter, was punishing
her severely, when a young negro
boy by the name of Green, became
enraged with his future father-in-law,
and securing a gun shot Purler. . He
has not been apprehended.
Tribulations of an Editor.
A lawyer charges a man $10 for
ten minutes' conversation. The man
insists on paying it. A doctor charg
es one dollar for a prescription, and
the patient says: "Oh, pshaw! Is that
enough?" An undertaker charges
$100 for conducting a funeral, and he
is just perefectly lovely with every
body inside and outside the family,
says the Marion, Ga., Record. A man
buys a gold brick and apologizes for
rot having bitten before. An editor
walks a mile in the hot sun to get
the facts of a death or a wedding or
a. social function and spendi three
'louse writing it up and tell lies
praisiug people until he hates him
self. Then if he makes an insigni
ficant omission or charges five cents
straight for three extra copies he is
a *.'iiigy, careless, good-for-nothing,
old cuss who n^ver gets anything
right and charges four times the
price of city papers twice as large.
Feels the Storm.
Beyond blowing down some trees
and injuring the crops, the terrible
storm that visited the coast Sunday
and did so much damage in Charles
ton and other places, did no damage
in this section so far as we have
heard. Had cotton been open to a
greater extent in the fields than it
was much damage might have been
dene by its being blown out.

I Two Reels - About 2,000 Feet
There is small need to describe this subject, as the poem of
Lord' Tennyson is so well known, so suffice it to say that this
Biograph subject is an unusually faithful portrayal of that beau
tiful "romance of Enoch X'rden, Annie Lee and Philip Ray taken
in scenes of rare beauty. This first part tells of the betrothal of
Enoch Arden and Annie Lee, the despair of Enoch at his inabil
ity to cope with the demands of bis increasing family obligations,
and his sailing away to recoup his fortunes on a vessel bound for
China. A storm is encounter-ed, the vessel wrecked, and Enoch
with his two companions is washed upon a tropical island, where
they are forced to stay. Annie all the while is ever hopeful of his
return, while Philip, though a unsuccessful rival, shows a kindly
interest in the little grief stricken family.
PART TWO. t
i This is the second part of the subject, the first showing the
marriage of Enoch and Annie, and his sailing away Co recoup his
fortunes. The vessel is wrecked, he with two companions is strand
ed on an isle wfoera they are forced to remain. Meanwhile, Annie
is ever hopeful of his roturn. This part begins several years later X
and while Philip sues for the ihand of Annie she refuses, still faith- ffr
ful to her hope of Enoch's return. Finally she accepts for the y
sake of er children, and when iher new baby came?Philip's child %?
?she is Philip's all-in-all. Meanwhile, a ship in quest of water
puts in at the Island, and Enoch, now alone, his comrades having
died, is rescued.
