of the pater familias as "the Governor,"

has evidently had its attention absorbed
by the Baltimore convention.
The Herald and News desires to
commend the resolution adopted oy
the State Firemen's association at
Hock Hill relative to authority to condemn
old buildings that should be torn
down because they are a menace to
adjoining property. There shoald be

Outline of Flan for Exposition School

As you have already been advised,
the fifth national corn exposition will
be held in Columbia, South Carolina.
January 27 to February 3, 191.3, and
after carefully investigating the Boys'

as conducted by the farn demonstiation
department, we have decided to

The school, which will open on Monday,
the opening day of the exposition,
will continue one week. The faculty
will consist of agricultural exnerts
from all parts of the country who will
be at the exposition in charge of the
exhibits. The exposition is more than
a mere corn show, and the exhibits,
which are prepared under the auspices
of the leading State agricultural colleges
and experiment stations, and the
federal department of agriculture,
graphically emphazie and illustrate
nearly every phase of agricultural ad^

what the national corn exposition
has grown to be.
We have arranged for an.immense
building located near the main- exposition
buildings for the headquarters
of the boys while they are in Columbia,
and they will be put in charge
of representatives of the boys' de

of 1,000 boys, and it now looks as
though there would be fully that many
in attendance. It is hoped that the

the inspiration which' will surely come
to them from the visit' to the exposition.
The expense will probably be
little more than the actual railroad
fare, plus $1.00 per day for living expenses
while at the exposition and en
route. The boys' headquarters will be
provided with cots and a good dining
room will be located on the grounds

<S> ? FODDER PULLING. <8>

The fodder pulling season of South
Carolina is near at hand. This is a
farm practice which has been a costly
one to the farmers of this State for
many generations, but some* of the

various communities are beginning to
appreciate the drawbacks of this expensive
operation, and are using better
rough feeds in its stead.
The chief arguments made by most
farmers for the continuance of this
practice is that "fodder" comes in at
a. time of the year when roughage is
scarce, that it is a feed which is easily
handled during the feeding period, and
one which is relished by all horses and
mules. Grant that the above reasons
are good ones?will they offset the
following facts which have been carefully
worked out at most of our
Southern experiment stations. First
of all, fodder pulling reduces the yield
of shelled corn per acre. The Florida
9xperiment station reports the smallest
loss of any station, which' was 2.9
bushels per acre. The Mississippi
station reports the greatest loss, which
wb.s 8 bushels per acre. The other
stations reporting gave losses ranging
between the above weights, the
iverage being 6 bushels for all the i
Southern States reporting. At the

same time the average yield of fodder
1 per acre was 440 pounds. "With, the
average prices of corn at $1.00 p?r
bushel and fodder at $1.25 per hundred
pounds and assuming that the
above weights are representative of
any given farm, the man who pulls
fodder loses fifty cents per acre in

While corn fodder may be a palatable
feed, it has a TiOor feeding vaiue
when compared with other forms of
hay which can he easily grown in
South Carolina, such as "owpcas, oat,
an<i vetch hay. These two crops c.in
be grown and harvested for about
$5.00 per acre each, and on average

of good hay per acre, which is worth
