hundred years ago when Luther found :
a Latin copy of the Bible in the library;
of the University of Erfurt he immedi- <
ately recognized the importance of it:
being in the hands of the people. This
great purpose of his life was accom-!

the German language. For this act

During November it is hoped that as
many more agents will be secured,;
thus guaranteeing that in practically,
every important town and city in South
Carolina the fight against tuberculosis j
will be waged. Everywhere people are !
awakening to the fact that tuberculosis
is a preventable disease, and can hence,
be stamped put by wise and energetic
preventative measures. It is a useless
sacrifice to allow upwards of |
2;000 people to die every year when |
this great drain upon the State's re- j
sources and citizenship could be al-;

\fter, the close of the war, when the
legroes and carpet baggers held high
carnival in our State he acted a very
prominent part and helped gave society

He has always taken an active interest
in the Confederate soldier and
tne cause for which he fought. He has
consistently opposed and condemned

served them more efficiently and unselfishly.

whose husband fought in a South Carolina
regiment and helped secure a
pension. Without his timely assistance
she would not have gotten a pension

of his aforetime physical vigor and activity,
it is fitting that we should acknowledge
his faithful service both in

! In ascertaining the immunizing of'
cotton to spark and flash hazard by'
dipping, the Underwriters' Laboratory j
of Chicago became interested. W. C. J
Robinson, chief engineer, and foremost j
I authority on fire hazard in this coun- j ;
jt:y, made a personal investigation, j.
j taking an eight-day trip to Oklahoma!
! for that purpose. In July, 1914, .Mr. j_
! Robinson subjected numbers of treat-1 (
! ed bales of cotton to rigid tests. Hun-1 '
j dreds of burning cinders, lighted J
| matches, cigars and cigarettes were;
jthicwn promiscuously on the dipped
f bales of cotton. The^e cinders were j
! hated red hct by a blowpipe and va,
i ried in size from one-eighth to sevenj
eighths inch in diameter. The effect
of this contact was simply to char the
cotton, there being no evidence of
either fire or flash. Treated cotton
was also shipped safely on a flat car j
from Oklahoma City to Chicago, over!
| 1,000 miles, without the slightest dam- |
; age from sparks, notwithstanding the
fact that this car was next to the
engine the entire trip.
Mr. Robinson then made a test to
establish whether the fiber from the
dipped bales of cotton had been injured.
He ran the dipped cotton
through every process of manufacture .
in a regulation cotton mill, and the
j tensile strength proved to be unimi
paired. The fibre took the most delicate
dyes perfectly, and was found to
bleach even whiter than undipped cot
The Southeastern Underwriters' asj
sociation has made a reduction of $i
i per $100 on all dipped cotton subject
.to spark and flash hazard, with an additional
reduction of 5 per cent on the
rf ^":ning premium. As far as coun- .
:.y damage is concerned, bales dipped
with this solution have 'been left for as
long as five years on the ground in
the open without one cent of depreciation.
