E. H. AULL, H(DITOR.
We notice that the farmers in
some of the counties are holding
mass meetings to protest against
the increase in the price of fetilizer
which it is said has been increased
from two to three dollars per ton.
The average farmer could make a
great deal more fertilizer at home
if he would give a little more time
and labor to it than he does. It may
be that the increase in the price
of connercial fertilizer will be to
him a blessing in disguise if it keeps
him from using so much of it. At the
same time the only way the farmer
has of securing his rights is to protest
when he feels they have been in
fringed and if the farmers would
place themselves in position to unite
they could be the most independent
people in the world.
Col. John Bell Towell has sold
the Batesburg Advocate to N. R.
Bayly and retires from the editor
ship. We are glad to note, how
ever, that the name of John Bell
Towell still remains at the head of
the editorial page as assistant editor
for this means that he will still be
with the press association whose
members esteem him very highly
for his many good parts.

First Cost Not the Cheapest.
The first cost of an article does no
necessarily determine its cheapnesq
For instance, a sack of "Clifton" flou
may cost you a little more than othe
so-called patent flours, but it will b
cheaper to you in the end. Why? Bc
cause it will not only make more brea
to the sack, but will tak~e less lard an
soda to make it. Orde? a sack of "Clii
ton" and make a test for yourself. I
wimll prove the truth of this statemeni
