The last legislature appointed a committee
to look into the advisability of
t :e State establishing a printing plant
o do the State printing, including the
rinting for the counties. Why wouldn't
; be a good idea for the State to es
ablis.:- its- own newspapers and run
iem, and give the people the only kind
f news and idea that coicided with
le policies of the then administration,
/hy should ti e people fcave any ideas
r opinions except those expressed by
:e State and the office holders? It

Gov. Manning has removed the Barnwell

Pity fc-e split log drag was not used
just a little more before the roads got

say, however, that the colonel is re- j
ceiving a great deal more consideration
than he .ormerly did, and is getting
more into the confidence of the
people, and is being given a great deal
more consideration and respect. It is
well. It was largely a process of education.
We want to see Supervisor
Samp'e run his scrape over the road
from Kinards to Little Mountain. We
must make this one or r:e oesi |
stretches of the Capital-to-Piedmont |
highway. It will pay Newberry to do |
it. It will be a big advertisement and i

SOUTH OAROLI>A MUST FEED
During the past two weeks a slogan
lir.s been taken up in Alabama whi li
trv thr> slogan in every cotton
g owing State. "Let Alabama Feed |
Korself" is t;:e cry which has been
raised in Alabama. "Let South Caro
ina Feed Herself" is the cry which
s." ould be raised in South Carolina.
Just how far Souttii Carolina is preparing
to do this can not be detern
ined at the present time. There is
co question but that in some sections

planted than ever before in the memory
of any man now living. But the
acreage in grain is by no means so
1< rge as it was expected to be. Thous:
nds of farmers who l:ad intended to
p.ant some wheat have been prevented
from doing so. The rains which set in
-e:;rly in the fall, before the cotton was
y<t out of tfee fields; have kept up so
steadily throughout tt<e winter that it
v. as impossible for many farmers to do ;
-a lything along that line. Whether j

We believe that this section of Soutib j
Carolina is arranging to fead herself.!
A great d<Ml of wheat has been planted, j
a: d also oats. More would ;%ave been
p:anted if it had not been for the rains
which began about the middle of No- !
vember and kept tl;e ground too wet
to plow until it was too late to plant
We have argued for many years that
the only salvation of this section of
country was for the farmer at least to
lord himself. The trouble cas been that
ii? this State tf e farmer has not only
r.o, been feeding those who did not
farm, but ibe has not been feeding himstl*

Some of the land w' ich weald have

j Yes, South Carolina must feed lierj
self, and the sooner s! <e realizes it
the better. We believe t) at this is goJ

On a recent trip to Anderson we
wpro vprv mnnh snrnrised to hear that
it was not only possible, but probable,
that t'jis progressive county would
likely defeat the measure for the issue
of bonds for the permanent road building
in that county. And that Lose
who would most likely vote against
the proposition were, as a rule, the
smallest taxpayers and the ones who
would be the greatest beneficiaries of
It is passing strange to us how
i anv can afford to refuse
or object to spending any reasonable
amount of money in the
building of roads. One generation
the building of roads. One generation
should not be expected to do all in
t' e matter of such permanent improvements,
and a debt left :'or the building
o. permanent roads is the best Legacy
that any generation could lea'.e
I irs successors. Money pui m me permanent
improvement of t':e public
roads is an investment that will pay
large dividends. The only way to do
the work so as to get results that will
count is by a bond issue, and in this
way the payment is spread over a number
of years "and tl -e burden bears
evenly and is not heavy on any one.
And then those who are now living
will get some of toe benefit and those
who are to come after will also receive
benefit, and will be willing to pay their
pro rata share of the debt.

an "off year in politics" we anticipate
a great outpouring of the brethren.?
Why should there be any politics at
any time at a press association meet

at the press gathering and there si .ould
be no politics at any time, but the
brethren should get together in good
fellowship and lay aside all the things
that burden and are l:eai/y laden. There
will be plenty of good Chick water

those who like that sort or thing. We
want to see the meeting a season or

good fellowship and we believe it will
be. Get your program ready and don':

A Battle of Wits Between the Animals
and the Engineers.
When the Grand Trunk railway ran
its line across a swamp in a jr.-nne preserve
on the line of the Alberta Rock;
ies there was a wonderfully constructed
beaver dam holding the water back
to flood the swamp j
! Thiss in thp ??vps of the came warden
! was pure was^e. and be ordered the
j engineers to prevent it without barm-;
i ing the beavers. Of course the dam
' could have been blown up witih dyna-1
i mite, but that would have meant the
death of most of the little animals and ;
death very likely in great pain at that. ;
So the engineers cut an opening In
i the dam. The mud had become almost i
as hard as concrete, and it took the ,
i men three day? to get the water run- j
i nine out steadily. Then, thinking their I

j Soon the water began to rise, and >

j The engineers made ail baste to the !
dam and found the annuals bad repair- j
ed the cut and made it tight again.
A fresh cut was made, but after the
men bad gone the beavers busied j
themselves and made it stronger than j
| ever. Work was again stopped ou the j

Then a deep bole was made In the ;
j earth far uuder the dam. The beavers j
j were mucb puzzled. Never before Daa j
| they seen water go down Into the;
ground and corae up far away. But j
they lent tbeir whole attention to the j
problem, and the work on the railroad |
was again stopped as a consequence
and the foundations soaked with water.
j Then followed an engagement of
wits t>etween the heavers and the engineers.
But every time the men :

Mr. Coniugsby Dawsou. the well i

A young English lieuteuant had died , .

touch the dead lie would lose all bis ^
caste aud perhaps, despite his wealth. 1

vised bini to semi for ttie sweepers. '

protests he picked up the body and 1
carried it down the palace steps to

done. Tbe next woruiug, wbeu be 1
