The annual meeting of the South
Carolina State Farmers' Union, soon

the history of this organization. The

Quite a number of subjects of in
terest to the Farmers' union and the
i agricultural class generally will be
taken up for discussion. Reports will
be made of the work in the various
counties in the State, showing the
lines of activity and the organized ef
forts made to educate the members of

Typhoid Preventive at Last.
It would appear from Paris dis
patches that a long step, at least, has
een made toward the discovery of
an effective anti-typhoid vaccine. Ty
phoid bacilli steeped in a weak solu
tion of water and common salt, withi
an admixture of ether, enable ani
mals to withstand subsequent typhoid
inoculation easily. It has also been
shown that the blood of persons thus
vaccinated possess antityphoid prop
erties in a high degree, killing the
bacll seedily. For some fifteen
has been used, with, on the whole,'
satisfactory results. During the Boer
war it very materially reduced the
death rate from sickness in those
British regiments where it was used.
Since that time its use in the armies
of the world has become fairly ex
tensive. Not long ago an entire regi
ment of the United States army was
vaccinated at Chattanooga. Physi
cians experienced in the use of this
vaccine declare that they have never
known serious results to follow its
judicious administration. It may,
however, cause slight illness of a tem
porary nature. The chief objections
against it so far have been this pos
sible consequence and the fact that
its effectiveness can be relied upon for
a brief period only. If the Paris dis
covery results in an anti-typhoid vac
cine indisputably suitable for general
use, a great benefit will have been
conferred by the discovery upon man
We cordially endorse the following
from the Columbia Record:
"If there is any man in South Caro
lina who by his public expressions
has done the cause of prohibition
more harm than Rev. J. L. Harley,
secretary of the Anti-Saloon league.
the name of that other man is un
known to us. He has added another
break to his list.
"In a communication published in
the Newberry Observer, Rev. Mr. Har
ley discusses the present political sit
uation in this State as it relates to
prohibition, essaying to answer the
arguments advanced for local option,
and in the course of his article he
says: ".Jst here is where the local
option principle as applied to the li
I quor business in South Carolina is a
farce. The scheming politicians and
the subsidized liquor papers will harp
on local self-government, etc."
"The politicians, whether they be
scheming, or not, can take care of
themselves, as well as of Mr. Harley
if they choose. But as one having
pride in the independence and integ
rity of the profession of journalism
in South Carolina, and as one not
unfriendly to the cause of prohibi
tion, the Record desires to say that
Rev. Mr. Harley owes it not only to
the press of the State, but to the anti
saloon league, which he represents,
to name if he can any paper in South
Carolina that is "subsidized" by the
liquor interests or by any other in-!

Nick Downer is a negro, a negro
farmer who is described as "pros
perous" and is one who "owns land."
The fact is not set forth, but it may
be assumed that Nick is "respected
by the whites." There is no infor
mation at close hand regarding the
matter, but we will venture to say
that Nick takes up very little time
contending for "his rights." He
doesn't have to; he has all he needs.
He is a pillosopher, and when he

Boss, the hail got my crop Sunday
evening. Nearly all of my cotton
was chopped out, and the hail left
only little stems; very few leaves
were left on any of it. The blades 3n
my corn were cut into strings, but
I know that will come out all right.
I would feel like my cotton was ruin
ed, but I remember that about twen
ty years ago, my cotton was done
the same way, and I thought it was
ruined. I waited on it a while, when
it began to con-e out and this made
me work it hard. That year I made
60 bales of cotton with five plows, the
best crop I ever made before or since.
This is what makes me think that all
of us who have been struck by the:
hail this year, are going to do better
than we think we will.
It is a pleasure to contribute to
wards the distribution of Nick's op
timism. When the wild blasts:
of hail and storm don't disturb him;
when his cotton fields contain noth-1
ing but bare stems, and the leaves of
his corn are left in strings, he knows
that there is one thing which misfor
tune seldom overcomes-one thing
that the fates pay trih'te to>-and that
