Entered at the Postofficc nt V^wferry,

E. H. AULL, EDITOR. 1
Friday, November 1, 1912. <
Do not forget the election- next
Tuesday. Let everybody vote, and be 1
in position to say, "I helped to make
The Greenville Piedmont says: "We
never could understand how Prosperity,
S. C., got its name."
No wonder you never could understand
that or anything else. Xo editor
is in a condition to understand the
simplest thing, after "exhibiting" the
following in the same column from
which the above is taken :
"William Jennings Bryan says that
the t-ane, not the insane, must decide
this presidential contest. And yet Mr.
Bryan wants to help settle it."
Everybody else recognizes Mr. Bry- <
an as the sanest of the sane, and a
man who thinks otherwise must be t
Clearing the insane line. ,
It will be remembered that at the
general election next Tuesday the
qualified voters of the State will pass
on the question of issuing $1,000,000 j
of State boards for the purpose of pay- i
ing for lands and completi/g the erec- i
tion of the buildings of the new State
Hospital for the Insane. Considerable work
has been done with money bor- ]
Towed from the sinking fund commission;
but this money has to be replac- (
ed. and it is Dronosed to do this with a ,
part of the sum realized on the sale of j ?
the bonds. The proposed bonds, if j (
they are issued, are to be secured by a .
mortgage on the present asylum prop- "
erty, and it is expected that long before
the bonds become due this prop- ,
erty will sell for sufficient to retire .
them. If the bonds are not voted, the 1
means with which to do the proposed .
work will have to be raised through j.
increased tax levies.?Torkville En- j '
The Yorkvi)le Enquire!* states' the
proposition clearly and succinctly. If 'j
all the newspapers of the State had :
eimply presented the facts to the peo- '
pie, then the voie could have been in- ,
telligently cast on this question.
CS% ? >
We do not like the proposed asylum ^
bond issue for another reason, which >t
snay not be a good one, but it is: worth
looking into and that is because it was
the only one of the items in the State %
election that the people were called on j
to vote upon which was not set forth ^
fully before them. They do not know
Tvhat it is that they are' voting on, and
the text of the resolution ought to have
been published with the rest of the
questions in the notice of election. We
do not think that the people can be
too careful in this matter of bond is- (
sues, A million dollars for a new asy- i
lum is not needed nearly so much as <
many other things are, and the pres- <
ent asylum can be relieved of much of <
its congestion by proper measures.
We would far rather that the general (
assembly come back at us on this (
As to the notice of election referred (
to by the Times, we think the point is ,
well taken, that the commissioners of
election, or the Secretary of State, or
whoever prepared the notice, did not
set forth fully the resolution of the .
general assembly authorizing this spe- *,
cial election. It occurred to ifs at the i
time we received the notice from the 1
commissioners of election, and we
thought at that time of calling attention
to it. ]
All of the proposed amendments to r]
the constitution are set forth fully ex-;
cept this one. We are satisfied that J
there was no intention on the part of!'
anyone to withhold the facts from the! i
people, hut it would have been better ]
if the entire resolution had been set )
forth. However, it seems to us that ^
with all that has been said about this
proposed bond issue, the people ought..
to be sufficiently informed to vote in- :
It is the duty of the State to care
for tbe unfortunates who are confined '
itf the asylum, and to care for them in
at least a humane way, and with the,,
crowded condition now eating at the!'
asvliim. and thf> raoid I
increase of the population, it is utterly
impossible to care for these people '
ns they should be cared for.
The editor of the Times will no j<
doubt recall the investigation held by ]
the legislature a few days ago, looking n
into conditions at the State Hospiia
for Insane, and no one who ha<s giver
the- matter any thought at all wil
reach any other conclusion than tha
it is absolutely imperative upon th<
people of the State to relieve the con
flition now existing. Of course, then
are other things needed, but there h
nothing demanding the attention o
the people so strongly as to relieve thii
congested condition, and it would b<
really a waste of money to spend an:
more upon permanent improvement;
upon the present property, especiau:
in view of the fact that a large trac
of land has been purchased and con
siderable money already spent upoi
the development of a new asylum.
Ae we have before remarked, ther<
is only one of three things for th<
people of the State to do:
1. Vote the bond issue, pledging thi
present property in Columbia for it)
2. Continue the work of developmen
by a direct tax.
3. Discontinue the work at the nev
In considering this, the peopli
should remember that over 2,000 acre*
of land have been purchased and sev
eral buildings already erected am
equipment installed for continuing th<
work, and that altogether something
like $150,000 have been s'pent. Thi
State can not afford at this stage t<
iiscontinue the work.

these colleges were tools with whicJ
the church intends to Christianize th<
world. On Wednesday evening slide;

the plans for the organization of th<
mission classes were completed, and i
is the purpose of thei leaders to inter

Growing Alfalfa in S. C. 4
Recently there have been a numbei
Df inquiries in regard to alfalfa receiv
ed at this ofl5ce. Our experiment*
with this crop will not warrant ou:
recommending it as a safe one for thij
State. Our soils can be made to gro^
it, and it is being done in several sections
of the State, with fairly gooc
results, but the large number of fail
ures and the cost of producting it ar<
drawbacks to success with this crop
rne rarmer can reiy wiui more cer
tainty on cowpeas, sorghum and peas
and oats and vetch. With these cropi
lie can secure better results, and witl
For those who are contemplating the
growing of alfalfa, one of the best way*
af getting results is to start preparing
the land at least one year previous tc
che tima of sowing the seed. Unless
the land is rich, well drained, and frefrom
weed and grass seed, it will no
be profitable to sow alfalfa. In the
fall, break the land deep, and apply <
:on of lime per acre, harrowing thi<
in well, in aoout one weK appiy siauie
manure at the rate of from five to ter
tons per acre, and harrow this in
Then, during some moist period ii
September, or October, the earlier th<
better, sow bur clover, crimson clove:
or vetch, inoculating the seed whei
sown or use soil from the field when
the crop has been grown successfully
I'se a liberal amount of complete fer
tilizer at this time. In the spring ai
soon as the ci.m is taken from th<
land, plow it deep and thoroughly
again, and apply 1000 pounds of lime
Sow cowpeas broadcast, ami give c
liberal application of a complete fertilizer.
Do not apply stable manure
1 at this time, as it will serve to spread
! weed a;:d grass sesd. The stand of peas
j should be thick in order that the weeds
and grass will not get started. In the
fall cut the peas for hay and plow
- the land shallow, or it is a light sandy
- loam, discing is all that is necessary.
3 Apply lime again at the rate of 1,000
; pounds per acre, and harrow it in.
. Alfalfa should not be sown on a loose
1 and dry seed bed. Sow the seed dur3
ing so?ne moist period between the
- last of September and the middle of
y October, at the. rate of 25 pounds per
3 acre broadcast, and harrow them in
lightly. Inoculating will be necessary
and can be done either by inoculating
t thp with Farmofferm before sow
- ing, or by applying two hundred
i pounds of soil from an old alfalfa field
broadcast per acre. Farmogerm will
give good results is used properly. Use
as fertilizer at the time of planting
e about 200 pounds of complete fertilizer.
harrowing it in with the seed.
5 If one wishes to plant alfalfa withs
out going to the trouble of starting one
year early and getting the land in
good condition, we would suggest that
land which has been in cowpeas, or
: some clean cultivated crop, be used.
7 [ Break the land deep and thoroughly,
and apply lime at the rate of 200
2 pounds or more per acre. Do not ap?
ply any stable manure unless it is
thoroughly decomposed and free from
weed and grass seed. Otherwise the
1 'sowing of the seed should be done in
2 the fall, the same as in the above dey
3 In the spring, if weed and grass get
^ started irr the fie<ld, it should be mowed
as often as necessary in order that
| they do not get ahead of the alfalfa.
Under no circumstances should weeds
* "and grass be allowed to maturre seed
in the field. Where there are no weeds f
y and grass to give trouble, cuttings
> should be made as often as the plants
y i are in full bloom or little before.
