Good Start Made in a Most Important
Work For the Boys of Newberry
af- With every prospect for a success
ful year, the Boys' Corn club of New
are berry county was officially organized,
ule and there was a very good enrolment
ow of boys for the start.
The meeting for the purpose of or
ganization was held in the court
C. house. Mr. W. H. Barton, district
an- agent of the Federal demonstration
ary work, and Prof. C. B. Haddon, head
of the school boy work of Clemson
to college, were present, and delivered
na. addresses in which they spoke words
an of encouragement to the boys, and
gave valuable information along the
led line of improved farming.
rs. County Superintendent of Education
I a E. H. Aull was appointed county
>w.. chairman of the club, and will have
ike charge throughout the year.
on A statement was made on behalf

Each boy is to work a full acre of

words, "Boys' Corn Club" in gold let

yEach boy is urged to send an exhibit
ngof corn to the National Corn show in
ry Columbia, in January, 1913. Special
iy low rates will be given to the boys

n-corn club day will be given. The
teachers of the county are especially
gurged to enlist all boys in their
ngschools, between the age limits, in t'ie
e club. Any information or instruction
it in regard to the club may be obtained
vs by w riting Mr. Aull, or any others
ce connected with the club.
:r- lt was a matter of regret that, ow
ust. ing to a delayed train, Mr. Long, rep
wsresentative of Dr. Knapp. who is in
charge of the farm demonstration
inIwork in the South, did not reach the
-r meeting in time to deliver the address
his which he had accepted an invitation to
nd Mr. Barton, district agent of the
.i demonstration work, in his address,
edd stressed the importance of the boys'
pa- corn club work in the South, and re
ferred to the fact that the North and
West are stuClying it, with the view
of ntroducing it -to those sections, and
ayy that represen-tatives from Brasil,
m-e Great Britain and Europe have recent
se ly sent representatives to this coun
t- try to study the farm demonstration
eswork with a view of introducing it
tointo their territory. He said that any
t y Ieffort to reduce the cotton crop to a
normal acreage would not succeed
until the farmer is induced to plant
aId something else on a part of the land
to now devoted to cotton which will pay
the'as well as, or better than, cotton, and
ws at the same time increase the fertili
al- ty of the soil, instead of robbing it of
for its fertility, as is now be.ing done in
iS the production of cotton alone. The
ndd speaker gave startling figures show
>re ing the fertilization removed from the
odd soil of Newberry county by the grow
ndd ng of cotton alone. He urged the
od lanting of cover crops, the raising of
ndd hogs and home supplies, the raising
hee of cattle, and rotation of crops, both
ht as money producers and in order to
ch increase the fertility of the soil rather
done when cotton alone is grown year
after year. He said that Dr. Knapp,
the farm demonstration leader, claim
ed that the Southern soils are capa
ble of making eight hundred per cent.
more profit than they are making at
present. Dr. Knapp was not often in
error, and he was a man who not only
told the farmer what to do, but how
to do it, and then went a step further
and made demonstrations on indivi
dual farms. South Carolina, he said,
had shown in several instances with
in the last four years how the clover
crop alone could he increased four
hundred per cent. Free fertilizers and
independence for the farmer, instead
of his being dependent and a mendi
cant at the doors of the fertilizer fac
tories, was what we wanted, he said.
He estimated in dollars and cents how
much good it would do to put clover,
vetch, etc., alone on the cotton lands
in the fall and turn this in in the

* NEWBERRT'S CHAUTAUQUA. *
Arrangements for Newberry's Chau
tauqua are now in process of perfec
tion. Nearly all the guarantors of
last year have voluntarily signed for
this year's program. Many letters of
inquiry have come to the officers of the
association asking how our first Chau
tauqua was m'ade so successful. The
only answer is that our people gave
the enterprise enthusiastic and united
support. We are expecting the same
kind of support this year.
It is thought best not to carry the
list of guarantors around this year1
for signatures as it is possible to miss
some of the very personS who might
desire to sign. The list may be found
at Mayes' Book store where any one
who desires to join the association
may have the opportunity to sign it.
The Chautauqua association ha
held two meetings the past week, and
-n each of them a spirit of enthusiasm
and confidence was niafiifested, and
there is a unanimous determninti1n to
make the June Chautauqua the b@st
program that will be booked in South
Carolina this summer.

TO AID THE STARVING.
Appeal to Newberry County Through

Acting upon an appeal from Presi

Cross, President A. C. Kaufman, of C
the South Carolina State board, Amer

to the people of South Carolina, for (
aid for the hungry Chinese. The ap

there are starving millions in China. C
In this Christian era of the world, it
would seem that there could be no <
greater sin than for those who hav? C
been blessed with even a little of the;
world's goods, to 'refuse to aid to the
extent of their ability in tie wark of
seeking to save human beings from
Dr. George B. Cromer, of Newberry,
is secretary of the State Red Cross
board, and will re;eive contributions
in Newberry county.
The people of South Carolina can
hardly realize conditions in which
for the lack of food people are starv
ing to death. This is an appeal. which
ought to meet with a hI'3.rty response.l
President Kaufman, iii his card to
the people of the St.e, says: "All of
us should contribute. Give something.
If you have much. give of your abund
ance. If you hav. lirr.'e, do thv dili
gence gladly to give of that little."
It is a stern duty which calls to
those who have. It is an appeal which
will bring into play the final test of I
