The State is apprehensive as to the
wisdom of urging a state-wide compulsory
education bilt, during the approaching
session of the legislature.
It fears the legislature will have too
much on its mind. Yet, pity the poo*
legislature. Don't let it 'undertake too
Ain't it so?
WHY SEND TO OHIO?
The "cattle" referred to in the clipping
below, from the news columns of
the Greenwood Index, imported 'for
breeding purposes, are presumably of
breeds not raised in South Carolina:
"Reports from all sections of t'ne
county indicate that the buyers are j
highly pleased with the cattle recent-1
ly bought for them in Ohio by Prof, j
J. 0. Williams of Clemson college. The |
cattle were in good shape on their ar- j
ri-vai, aue to me personal care given
them by Mr. Williams, and the people
are appreciative of his excellent services
of the buying and care of the cattle/'
At the state fairs, Jerseys, Herefords,
Red Foils and other varieties
are exhibited every year that are said
to be of extraordinary merit. They
are awarded prizes and to the eyes of
the inexpert observer they would hold
their own wita the patrician bulls and
cows of Ohio or any other region of
the United States. Everybody says
that we can raise cattle in the South
on equal terms with the West. When
will the day arrive that purchasers of
cattle for breeding purposes will buy
them from the enterprising and intelligent
stockraisers of South Carolina?
What is the heme <vf ^stajblishin^ a rat- !
tie industry in South Carolina if the
notion persists that, for some reason
or other, Western cattle are superior?
Are they superior? We are "from Missouri."
Further, we believe that the .
thoroughbred and registered cattle exhibited
at the fairs, fetate and county,
cf South Carolina would sustain themselves
creditably in prize contests anywhere
in the country. 0+her things
being equal, cattle raised in South

count of climatization, to cattle raised
in Ohio.?The State.
We have been wondering just the
same thing. Only a short time ago ;
some fine cattle were "brought to Newberry
to encourage in the raising of
cattle, and they were imported from
without the state. We wondered then
why it was. No doubt there is a good
reason for it, especially in the minds
of those who are importing the cattle,
but it would seem that from all the
fine cattle raised in South Carolina we
might find some from which, to imtmiava

tie in the South on the same terms
with these other fellows why not buy
from those who have devoted their
time to improving their breed and not
send West when we want some fine
cattle. The cattle that were shipped
in there came from somewhere in the
I West, we believe, and they were pur\
chased, as we understand, by an expert
from Clemson college.
President Kinard announces that he

Of course they will have to meet competition.
But just think of the change
that has come in one short year. One
year ago you couldn't borrow money
on the best of collateral at any old
rafe. The banks just wouldn't let you
haive it even on a cotton warehouse

If the farmer wants to hold what

to increase the acreage in cotton, but
plant a plenty of corn and small grain, j
A lot of them are holding their cotton, j
That is all right if they do not plant
too big a crop. If they do they will!

learned the lesson. It has been a hard

FOR CONSIDERATION OF COUNCIL j
We would respectfully call the at- j
tention of Mayor Wright and the city
council to the reading of Section 23
of the charter of the town of Xewj
berry, as published in the book of
I ccdificd ordinances of the town, as
! issued by the city council in 1910, and
which, we understand, is still of force.
Ti ? J ~ .
; ii rfitub.
' "Sec. 23. That the said Mayor and!
Aldermen shall publish, for at least
thirty days in each year, a notice
showing the methods of taxation
adopted by them, and laying down the
| rate of taxation in such notice, and
! also prescribing the time when the
i same shall be payable, which time of
! payment the said Mayor and Aldermen
j may, for good cair^e. extend, provided
j the extension shall be general."
For the past two years the general
j tax ordinance has been printed only
one time, so far as we have been ab'e
to ascertain, and the license ordinance
not at all.
We would like to ask council if the
| license ordinance, is a "method of taxation
adoDted bv them." and if it rinps
not prescribe "the time when the same
shall be payable," and if the does not
i lay "down the rate." And also if the
j publication of the regular tax levy one
; time in the papers is a compliance
j with' the precision of this section
; which says "for at least thirty days."' k
We have always understood from
I good lawyers that the courts always
! construed the tax laws very literally,
! ar.d is the 'levy of the tax lesal when
the provisions of the charter have not
been complied with, and could the
council enforce the collection of the
license ordinance if the council failed
to comply with the requirements of the
charter. Prior to the administration
of Mayor Wrigfnt the license ordinance,
which is only for one year, was published
each year when it was enacted,
but since that time it has not been
published at all. We presume it has
not been done in order to save a few ^
dollars, 'but should council violate the ]
plain mandates of the charter under
which they exist to save a few dollars?
These would be good question for the
council to consider at their meeting on c
Tuesday evening. ,
The great need is to get our people .
to conserve their own resources and i
take advantage of the opportunities 1
chat lie before them, and not be too
extravagant, and not play the fool and
plant too much cotton and depend on |
buying everything they need for man ' <
and beast. And then cheap money will |
help them, if they take the right ad-:
vantage of it.
A Collction of Old Coins.
A collection of ofa coins was brought
to this office some -few days ago.
There were four pieces in the collection,
one of which was more than two
hundred years old. Old coins are. very
interesting and no doubt this description
may interest many.
Probably one of the oldest coins in
luis county is ail uiu cupper vum
made in 1707 A. D. It is as large as a
dollar and is about one-eighth of an
inch thick, though abound the edge
the rim is heavier and is more than
one-eighth inch thick. The coin is
much worn and on one side the bust
of King George, which is nearly encircled
by this inscription, "Gcjorgius
Rex," is nearly invisible and part of
the inscription is so dim it can not be
read with the naked eye.
'The other side has a goddess who
is seated and who has a three pronged
spear in ner left arm. Her right hand
is extended as though she were pleading
for justice. "Brittania 1707'' are
the only visible words on this side. No
doubt this coin is very rare, as may
be the following ones:
The next oldest coin in this collec*
tion is dated 1781 and bears these
words "Voce Popolf' together with th? j
date. This inscription encircles a god- j
dess who seems to be seated on a'
throne behind a gate. On the oiher
side appears only these two words,
"Georgius" and "Triumpho," which
are on either side of the bust of King
George. This coin is of copper and
is about the size of a United States
| GO-cent piece.
The United States copper "half cent" j
[of 1803 is about the siz<- of the silver j
: twenty-five-cent piece. It is-about as,1
thick as the present day penny and
has a thick edge. "Half Cent" is en-!
circled by a laurel wreath and near i
the edge we find these words, "United j
Spates of America" almost forming ai
circle. The fraction 1-200 completes'
this circle. On the other side the Goddess
of Libert;.' appears, with the word
"Liberty" emblazoned on her brow,
and above her head stands the same
word which meant so much 10 our
Another United States coin was in
this collection. It was a copper one
cent piece and about the size of our
50-cent piece. This coin was not badly
worn and is nearly one hundred
years old. On one side the "One Cent"
encircled by the laurel wreath, which
is so characteristic of American money,
is encircied by this inscription, "Unit-'
ed States of America." The other side
has the first American Goddess of Liberty,
the date?1817?and thirteen

The Anderson Intelligencer of (
Thursday has the following to say of j
Mr. and Mrs. Stone:
il-he Rev. and Mrs. W. H. Stone'
left yesterday for their future home j
in Xewberry, where the former takes j
up his work as pastor of fne <Wekt;
End Baptist church. The Rev. Stone!
received a call to this church several i
weeks ago, and in a few days after- j
wards offered his resignation to his
churches in Anderson county.
The Rev. .Stone has been preaching j
in Anderson county for the past se.-j
eral years. For a number of years
he lived at Iva, but after being called
to the Orrville Baptist church he
moved there. For the past two years j
he has served the Orrville church, the
Iva Baptist church and Union Baptist
church at Barnes.

leave, send with .them their ivery best
wishes for their future welfare and
