superintendent of the State Hospital

succeed Dr. Babcock appears to have
been received very favorably even
from those who were bitterly opposed
to any change. As matter of fact, Dr.

Joseph B. Cooley.
"Josenh B. Ooolev. the Pride of
South 'Carolina," is the vay the "Philippines
Monthly'' of January heads an
article, prefaced by a double-column
cut of Joseph B. Cooley, formerly of
Xew berry, now of the Philippine Islands,
in regard to the rapid rise of
Mr. Cooley in the government service
in the Philippines. The article in regard
to Mr. Cooley, who has made
good in the far East, will be read with
interest by his many friends in Xew
berry. It follows:
"Among the many excellent appointments
made by Governor-General Harrison
perhaps none was more favorably
received by the people of the islands?Americans
and Filipnos alike?
than that of Mr. Joseph B. Cooley as
superintendent of the Prison and i
Penal Colony farm at San Romon,'
Zamboanea. Mindana. Joe Cooley is i
known far and wide throughout the
islands and his friends are a legion.
Joe was only a youngster when he enlisted
in the 29tJh Volunteer Infantry
and started for the Philippines, but
he had the soul of a man and he saw
some bloody days battling the- pulajanes
in Samar. He was at San Mateo
when the gallant Lawton was killed
and in many other stiff engagernpnts;
hpfr?rp hp wac *>i Af fhp plnsp
of hostilities he became a member of
the secret service department of the
ci:y of Manila and although at times
there was considerable disagrepabie
work 10 do, Mr. Cooiey w~~ >??,Vs
the gentleman ai.d Pue unlucky fellow
who l'ou.id himself in the toils knew
t.ia Mr. Coolev was merely pe i'orming
a du:y and that he was certain oi
getting a square deal as far as Cuoley
; was concerned. In 1S?k; Mr. Coo'ev
was appointed chief auen of the Philippine
constabulary, taking the place
j of F. L. Carpenter, who was killed in
i I airinifl whilo twiner 1 r\ i. m nr;> thn nn.
torious Sukay and his ba :id f outlaws.
.Mr. Cooley's services with the constabulary
has won for him the highest
praises of the men who have commanded
that organization and many
delicate missions nave been entrusted
to him. It might be expected natuYally
that a man carrying out the duties
Mr. Cooley has had ro perform would j
! make a great number of enemies for
! himself, but somehow or other Joe
could not seem to make anything but
"All of the leading Filipinos are his
friends and among those who were
I the firs: to requst Mr. Cooley's appointment
to a better position in the j
government service was Gove: nor
Lukban, of Tayabas Province, whom
Cooley had fought against in the Sa- j
"Mr. Cooley comes from a State that j
has produced some of America's great- j
est statesmen and soldiers, t.:e grand |
old State of Sou:a Carolina, and Cool-J
ey is proud of i;. He thought so much !
01 his native State that when he decided
to settle down none but a charming
South Carolina girl would do him
for a wife.
'in August, 1911, he married Miss
'Annie Lee La.:ford, of Lanford, South '
Carolina, and if Joe Cooley was popu- j
lar before uiiat date he was doubly so !
after his bride arrived here. Mr.
Cooley is a member of several organizations,
among them the Sons of th? !
Revolution, the Sons of the Confeder- j
acy and the Veteran Army of the Phi! - j

Washington, March 18.?Now that
.he urgen: deficiency appropriation
bill has passed the senate it is in order
to explain the full significance of
the pellagra uospital item of $47,000
which was mentioned by The News
and Courier's correspondet when the

ruary. It was not advisable to go into
deails until the item liad been approved
by both branches of congress.
The adoption of this item means
that the public health sei vice will establish
immediately at Spartanburg,
in the building of the Good Samaritan
hospital, the field institution for the
treatment of pellagra as declared necessary
by the secretary of the treasury
in a letter to congress dated De
cember 30, 1913. Be importance or

That sum, which will be
available at once and until completely

this may be used at Spartanburg if
necessary. As the Good Samaritian
hospital building is provided free of

be seen that toe public herftti servict
will be prepared to handle pellagra patients
in very large numbers at Spartanburg.

the board two years ago anticipated

ammoniate materials about equal to
cotton seed meal, blood, fish, etc. Mr.
Stack'.iouse said that the board was already
doing what the "Stuckey bill"
would have required and was doing it |
in a more economical and practical!
"As the use and sale of commercial
fertilizers grew," continued Mr. Stackhouse,
"the supply of these ammoniates
would not meet the demand, except
at prohibitive prices, and manufacturers
began to introduce and to i
use some tha; were considered infer- !

Mr. Stackhouse also stated that the
inspectors a>e required to weigh packages

such shipment so far, of 12 tons, has |
been reported this season, which wfhen
weighed out by the inspector was
found short 2,344 pounds. Upon request
the manufacturer promptly adjusted
and made restitution to the
buyer, as provided by law. Farmers,
said Mr. S'tackhouse, may rest securely
in the knowledge that the board is
protecting 'them from fraud of every
sort in the purchase of fertilizers.
