Four years from now Newberry
may have a candidate for the presidency
of the United States.
Our good friend, the Spartanburg
Herald, is taking politics very seriously.

Politics makes strange bed-fellows,
as has been remarked many times before.
Think of the Columbia State

ing in harness together.
Mr. Bryan's telegram to the editor
of the Columbia State, on the eve of
the contention, seems not to have
had the effect which was evidently
hoped for, judging by the prominence

matter is very little more biased than
the general run of its news matter,
other than its Associated Press reports.
We publish in this issue an extract
from an address from Miss Marie
Cromer, the founder of the girls' tomato
clubs. Some of the schools that
we have visited will remember that
we have spoken of Miss Cromer's
work, and no doubt will read this
story with, interest We are sorry that
Miss Cromer will give up the work as
she has recently changed her name and
no doubt will now have other duties
to engross her attention.
The newspapers which joked about

paralysis as he began to call the roll
^ showed very bad taste, to say the
least. There is a something in the
heart of every manly man which
prompts him to show at least negative
respect to physical infirmity and
to speak no ill of the dead. Partisan
politics sometimes leads one far
astray. More's the pity.

The Chautauqua last year afforded
a delightful week for Newberry, and
this year's Chautauqua promises to
he even better than the last one.
This is a movement by Newberrians
for the benefit and the pleasure of
Newberry, and the visitors within our j
gates. Let's make it a fine success.
The Newberry Herald and News
places the election of Mr. Rembert to
the State convention to the credit of
Blease strength. It should have said
that the election of Mr. Rembert was
the result of pure generosity on the
part of the Jones people. Has anybody
heard of a Jones man being
elected where the Blease delegates
were in the majority??Laurens Advertiser.
We have no recollection of placing
Mr. Rembert's election to "Blease
strength." The Herald and News, in
giving an account of the various coun
ty conventions, said: "In Richland,
George R. Rembert, the Blease floor
leader in the house, was sent to the
State convention. It is claimed tnai
Richland's other eleven delegates are
We have no desire to detract from
i the "pure generosity" of anybody. It
i strikes us the statement of Th Her.iid
and News was a si.npJe stateinen; oi
| a plain, unvarnished fact.

delegation will be free to vote as they
think best for_ the interests of the
party ar the time of the Baltimore convention.
As has been urged by The Herald
and News, this was the wise course to
be adopted by the convention. The
Democratic convention meets after the
Republican convention, and it would
have been extremely unwise to tie
the delegation with instructions and
thereby lose whatever advanage may
come to the Democratic party in
choosing its nominee by selecting a
standard bearer in the light of the j
action taken by the Republican con- i
vention. In addition, the situation J
changes daily, and by the time the |
Baltimore convention meets there J
may be and will probably be conditions
to meet unforeseen at this time.
The refusal to instruct is very gra|
tifying, the views of Mr. Bryan to the

A first class dairy co winherits the
ability to convert large quantities of
food into milk. The quality of the j j
milk, as regards the per cent, of fat,
depends upon tne oreea ana tne muividuality
of the cow; but the amount
of milk and butter given will depend
largely upon the amount and character j
of feed supplied.
In the sections of the country where j
grass is abundant there is little need
of other feed during the summer ex- J
cept in periods of drought; but wherever
the pastures are poor, as most of
them are in this State, the dairyman
will find it profitable to supplement
them with soiling crops. In the sandy I
land sections of the State where it is
difficult to make good pastures, dairymen
should not be discouraged, as they
can easily produce as much milk per
acre from soiling crops as from grass,
and in most cases more.
In managing a dairy farm in this j
State an ideal plan would !
be to put the parts of the farm un- :
suited for cultivation in grass and to:
provide as much soiling crops in ad- i
dition as may be required. It is ad- '
visable to have the soiling crops
grown as near the place of feeding as
possible, and the amount to be grown
will be governed by the size of the

sown in September at the rate of two I
bushels of oats and one-half bush'el
of vetch per acre will furnish grazing <
during the dry weather of the winter,
from December 15 to March 15, with- j
out lessening the yield of hay or grain, j
This crop can be> cut and fed daily i
during the spring before grass is available,
or can be cut for hay or grain
about June 1. As soon as the crop is
off, the land is plowed and sown in
sorghum and cowpeas in drills, about !
one-nan ousnei or sorgnum ana one- i
half bushel of cowpeas being used per
acre. This crop is ready to feed in i
August and September when the pas- j
tures are usually dried up. If prefer-'
able, cane could be used instead of j
sorghum, but it is not likely to yield :
as much per acre.
This system gives two leguminous
crops per year on the same land, protects
the soil from erosion during the
winter, and furnishes the maximum
amount of green feed or hay of the
best quality. For the large dairyman
silage is preferable to soiling crops,j
as it is more economical and convenient,
and furnishes succulent feed <
every month in which it is needed
during the year.
If the farmers who are interested in [1
building silos and growing crops for j
silage will write to Clemson college,:
they will be given any assistance and
information they may need.
