SOl'TIIEItf SWEET POTATOES
FOR NORTHERN .>1AIlKETS
Former South (.rolinian Lomr Time
a Resident in New Jersey Sees
The fellowing letter in regard to
supplying South Carolina raised sweet
! ] oiatoes to the Northern markets is .
to the Columbia State:
| Tne letter of P. H. ^cGowan which
' appeared in your paper of Marc: 30
i relative to the importance ti.:at can
: be given to the sweet potato crop by
; Southern farmers is most timely and
i should be productive of much good. j
| My experience in the North for trie
; last decade or more has impressed one
j fact on my mind, namely, that the
| sweet potato,' andled by ti':e Southern
larmer in the proper way possesses
great possibilities. Not only may the
South be supplied with this important
j article of food, but the North and West;
! as well.
Southern farmers have not realized ,
ti:at t) e Northern centers are largo !
and consume vast quantities of all
| sorts of food. Uj> here the people are
' able to buy and do buy?they live well.
There is a market for what Southern
farmers should know how to grow
to advantage, as well as for the output
of new industries. For example,
the wholesale price of sweet potatoes
in tJ is city is $2.75 a bushel. During
the winter it was $1.75 a bushel.
There are no Southern potatoes on
I thp. market: t.hn^e to bp had are "Jer
This high price is not due to a market
that is isolated; we art on t!':e
main line of tf e Pennsylvania railroad,
where freight facilities are excellent.
The trouble is with the raisers of the
j crop. !
| If the Southern farmers would learn
j a lesson in co-operative farming from
the Danes, for example they could become
tfce most powerful factor in t?he
i economic life of t e nation.
j About two decades asc there was an
agricultural crisis in Denmark. Rais|
ing grain became unprofitable. The
i Danish farmer 'became of much con
1 cern to the government and national
| aid was thought advisable. But the
! farmers get together and said, "No,
; we do not want tT.at, we can take care
Out of this determination came Den_
) mark's prosperity. Agriculture, to a
; great extent, was changed for dairy:
ing. T at resolution of self-dependence
and the adaptation to new conditions
is a bright page in the history of that
I It seems that a change is going to
| be imperative in the mode of Sout'.i
Co-operative farming and marketing
i is waiting to bring its blessings L'o
; * ' ose who will practice it. The rais!
ing of sweet potatoes not only for the
jhcir?e market. but for those of the
i North and West is one phase of this
! activity that will be easy to make a
| success. Everything is favorable to
j producing such a crop in the Soutii.'
i T e se?son there is long; labor is not
j co high as farther North, and the poj
ratoes are superior. Invent a way to
| get the crop to the consumer at the
j proper time and the problem will be
| solved. Hence co-operative effort. |
One day last summer the writer was
I seated at a dinner table at the Win;
throp college summer sd' ool with sev-!
I 1 T 1 _ I
I erai leacuers, among wnorn was a man
i from New Jersey. There was a fine
i dish of canned sweet potatoes on tfte
| table. The remark was ventured that
j they came from Vineland, in New Jer-:
! sey. The diners, including the man
1 from New Jersey,.did not think it in
tf:e realm of possibility that potatoes
would be shipped from New Jersey to
South Carolina. It would be like the
proverbial taking of coals to New- j
castle. However, tfce empty cans were
j looked up and, indeed, the potatoes
i had been packed is Vineland. Of
| course, if none were on the market
| but Jersey potatoes, then they were
j the only ones to be had. Here is only j
j one example of many to illustrate the
| same point: "WT.y should not the South
: (have been selling potatoes to the North
instead of buying them from that section?
Again, what an opportunity for those j
i living in the lower part of the State j
j to create an industry in figs! There ,
j is nothing more delicious than figs ;
| canned or preserved, and our Norte- j
! ern neighbors could be induced to buy j
j large quantities of them, if some one j
j were to go about the business right- [
This finer kind of farming calls for !
j greater intelligence, industry and per- ^
severance man Goes couon raising. .
But that is one reason why the change j
should "be welcomed. Anything tiiat!
brings into use these qualities will,
prove a great blessing in more ways j
than the financial one.

HIjHEST COURT EACKS i
INSURANCE CO SliSSIONER
JIctfASTEirs Kl'LIMJ IX PHOENIX
CASE IS Sl'STAINED
Federal Supreme ("<Mirt Says Tliat
SoutL Carolina Oitieer Exercised j
His Lawiill Discretion.
The United States supreme eourt in'
a decision on Tuesday up! <eld the i
South Carolina statute providing for
the deposit of either $20,000 in securities
or a surety company bond in
that amount, in ti e discretion of the
insurance commissioner. F. H'. -McMaster,
insurance commissioner, said
that fce was very much gratified with
the decision of the court. The State
of South Carolina was represented in
the case by Attorney General Tl. os. H.
Peeples and Assistant Attorney General
Fred H. Dominick.
The decision by the United States
supreme court was rendered in the
case of ti:e Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance
company against F. H. McMaster,
insurance commissioner. The
case was argued before the United
States supreme court on March 12.
The case grew out of t.:e insurance
commisioner demanding that the
Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance company,
of Hartford^ Coain,., deposit
tpAV,VVU All OtVUi J.W4VO '.--0
that company to do business in this
State for tlbe year beginning April i,
1912. The company tendered a surety
company bond and refused to deposit
securities. The insurance commissioner
refused to issue a license. The
company applied to Judge Watts for
an injunction and mandamus and ti:e
case went up to the State suprema
court. The Stc-.te supreme court, oy a
decision rendered in March, 1913, upheld
.the insurance commissioner.
The ca0e was taken from fi'.ie State
supreme court to the United States
supreme co; rt on an appeal under the
14th amendment to ti e constitution
of tf:e United States, the company alleging
that ii had been denied fbe
equal protec;ion of the law.
T e Pho-enix Mutual Life Insurance
company sojght to show that the insurance
commissioner I ad discrimi*
nated in favor of the Mutual Benefit
Life Insurance company, of Newark,
X. J. 'This the insurance commissioner
denied and took the position that
was acting entirely within the statute
in demanding a deposit of securities
by the Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance
The decision of t! e United States
supreme court is taken to mean that
the ins:1:.1 nee commissioner's position
has been sustained.

HOW TO CURE A
I Told in the Following Letter
by a' Jackson Man Who
Knows from txperience.
His Word Is Good.
Jackson, Miss.?"I am a carpenter;,
and the grippe left me not only with a
chronic cough, but I was run-down,
: worn out ana weak. I took all kinds of
I cough syrups but they did me no good.
| I finally got so weak I was not able to
| do a day's work, and coughed so much I
: was alarmed about my condition. One
! evening I read about Vinol and decided
to try it Before I had taken a quarter
of a Dottle 1 felt be tter, and after taking
I two bottles my cough is entirely cured,
i all the bad symptoms have disappeared
and I have gained new vim and energy.
?John L. Dennis, 711 Lynch Street,,
The reason Vinol is so successful ii>
j such cases is because the active medicj
inal principles of cod liver oil contained
! in Vinol rebuilds wasting tissues- and
I supplies strength and vigor to the nerves
and muscles while the tonic iron and .
wine assist the red corpuscles of the."
I blood to absorb oxygen and distribute1
; it through the system, thus restoring
! health and strength to the weakened,
j diseased organs of the body.
