Prof. D. N. Barrow to Talk on This
Subject Next Tuesday.-Ev
ery Farmer Should Attend.
Prof. D. N. Barrow, 04 tiemsoh
college, who is in charge of the ex
tension school farm.' work in this
State, will be in Newberry next
Tuesday, March 1, and. will- deliver
an address to the farmers in the
court house at eleven o'clock.
Professor Barrow is not simply
a theorist .but is a bractical agricul
turist and his addresses are along
practical lines and every farmer,
who avails himself of the topportun
ity to hear Prof. Barrow next Tues
day will be benefited by it.
He will probably discuss as the
leading idea of his address the sub
jeqt of growing corn. This is a very c
important question to every farmer. i
Great improvement has ibeen made .c
in this section in the ! matter of z
growing corn and as a result the
yield per acre has been very great
ly increased. Unless the seasons are
very unfavorable with proper cul
tivation and fertilization every acre
plasnted in corn in Newberry comt
ought to yield never less. than
twenty-dive bushels an4 it could be1
brought to that state of cultivation i
when the minimum average would a
be fifty bushels to the acre.- It is ai
little strange, 'but true, that while
South Carolina holds tike world's a
record for the largest yield of corn E
on one acre she has also the world's'
record for the smallest average
yield per acre. There is 1no reason
why tthis state of facts should existt
any longer, and it must be admitted'
that it is due rnot to the condition of.
the soil but to the lack of, intelli
gent and scientific methods and
-proper cultivation and fertilization.; E
Theise things. are meantioned to
stress the importance of the sub~- 'a
jeet to b4 diseussed for the benefit
of the farmers of this county . by s
Prof. Barrow at the i court house
next Tuesday at eleven o'clock.
There should be a large attendance
of the farmers of this county.

An old lady writing in an ex- S

rs and has also ordered two King I
Every overseer, or at least every
ommunity, where it is pretended to
rork roads at all, should have one
f these drags. They cost $35.00
ach and the experience of those
eople where these drags have been
sed is that better results for the
mount of outlay can be obtained by
be proper use of the drag than in
Imost any other way. When the
oad overseers can see tOe working
f this inexpensive machine it is
oped that more of them will be pur
If the three scrapers and the
rags are used properly Supervisor
'eagle ought to be able to have some
airly goods roads in this county in
:e near future.
,Supervisor Feagle has also traded
E five old mules belonging to the
Dunty. for five young ones. It was
tated ;to The Herald and News some
ew. daysc..ago that the five mules
raded: by the supervisor were young
-d serviceable and that he had given..
em in the, trade, and about $1300,
Dr the five young mules. The trade
ras made with Summer-Wise Mule
b., .and The Rerald and News is re
ably informed tbat the cash differ
nce paid for the young mules is
One of the mules traded for the
oung ones was 'known as "iMaek,"
nd is said to be about twenty4vie
ears old and an expert kicker; an- j
ther one of the mules traded by the
apervisor wa's known as "Mag" and
said to have suffered continually
rom, a weak back; another was ]
nown as ''Doek" and it is said that
Dock" was. co-itinually in need of ]
doctor; another one of the county's
Id relies which was traded was
nown.by the name of ''John" and
is said that "John". had' served
grading for the Sea Board Air 1
ine railroad some years ago when:]
dat road was built into Columbiiajb
nd that ''John" was not a, baby ati
dat time. The other mule was call
d ''Aleek'" and it is said that
%leck" possessed a. high degree of
tubbornness and in many respects
Bsemblea an ox in that whenever:
oti weather came ''Aleek" insisted1
po'n lying down to. rest. 4
Jordan Green who is with Sum
ier-Wise Co.3 left on Wednesday
*ight for St. Louis where he will
urehase another lot of mules.
These being' the facts it wouldap
ear that the county has made a.
ood trade and if the expense of1
ew .machinery is to be incurred it j
good judgment to 'have inew and]
bust mules with which to handle it.
The .Herald and News hopes ithat1
upervisor Feagle will take up the.I
rork of road improvement in a sys
matie and business like manner.
One of the first .roads that shiould
ave his attbntion is the extensionw
e the one mile of good road buiIk
nder the governmert supervision on
> Prosperity. Before any more per
Lanent work is dore am this road,
owever, it should be relocated so as
avoid so many railroaa crossings.
E the road from Newberry to Pros
erity were so relocated and built ia
eeordance with the work done on
ie one mile of goverenmeht road,
ae two places would be ahnost asj
ne and as the traveling from- that
setion of the county to Newberry
nad from Newberry to 'that section
probably -the heaviest on any
yad in the county the building of
mis road would serve the greatet
LUmlber. Another advantage in build
ig this road is that it woul be in
Lpensive as the sand and clay may
a found along the roadside. It would
lso be a convincing lesson' and would
robably be used by more people
ian any other road .in the county.4
iThe Herald~ and News, hiowever,
delighted to kvow that Supervisox
eagle proposes to do some \ road,
ork in a systematic sad business
ay and that it is his intention to
;op skipping from one section of the j
>ainty to another .and spending at
~ast half of the time of the chain
ang in moving about.

hose in charge looked to the futue,

inued there would be- many lines
oming in over this route. Although
;here were at that time only twd
ines in connection with which Man
