SELLING THE SURPLUS VEGETABLES
? . v
I have been growing and marketing j
vegetables, etc., in small quantities.
for a cood manv rears and have learn
ed a few things that have proved
valuable to me and may be useful to
some other farm woman.
In the first place, I find that it pays
to have special customers- I often sell
onions for $i a bushel when the merchants
pay only 60 cents. The telephone
is a great -help in this. I 'phone to
probable customers that I have certain i
things, state my price, and arrange de- }
tails of deliver}*. When I go or send to '
town I know exactly what to take
It is far pleasanter than peddling things j
about and more dignified. It is so much |
more comfortable to feel that we are |
conferring the favor, as we are when we i
sell fine vegetables.
I make a very special point of having
everything I sell the very best cless.
I have quite a large asparagus bed and
sell a good deal evry spring, but only
the finest stalks. We use lots. But I
don't sell anything else. The smaller
stalks I use in soup, omelets, etc. So
with potatoes and onions, I find many ;

I always try to make things attractive.

a leg of lamb. I have even made a
quarter of beef beautiful with a string

What we need most in the South,
1 think, is a keener sense of honor in
trade. 1 am Southern through and
through, but it is not to be denied that
some of us think that "trade"' is not
very honorable, anyhow, and that it
doesn't much matter if we do get the
best of the transaction. This, it see?ns to
me. is a mistake. .Instead of "doing
others before they do us" let us adopt
the motto, "The best produce in the best
condition. to tno best customers." We
shall find it pleasanter and more profitable.-Mrs.

BABY WEEK TO BE OBSERVED
THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY
Many communities in South Carolina
will observe baby week. Plans fcr conducting
it are furnished by the children's
bureau, United States department of labor,
and this bureau has asked the cooperation
of the State Federation of
Women's clubs, particularly the health
department of the federation, and the
extension department of Winthrop college.
All are actively engaged in furthering
this campaign, feeling that "baby
health is South Carolina's wealth"?to
transpose the Texas slogan.
"The inquiries coming in prove the
interest which this week of health ob
servance is arousing," writes Miss Mary
E. Frayser, head of Winthrop's extension
work in home economics. "It can
not fail to create an interst in child welfare
and disseminate knowledge concerning

fiirg some preparation for baby week,
according to the inquiries received by
the children's bureau of the United
States department of labor. This num
ber does not include those of whose interest
in the campaign word has come
to the bureau indirectly.
"The letters about baby week are still
coming in from every State in the union
and from every type community, such
as a Colorado settlement 40 miles from
a railroad, a club of women on one of
the government reclamation projects, a
Montana coal mining town with a large
foreign population, a Southern mill village,
and a club of farm women in a
Middle Western State.
"Texas -has its own baby week slogan
?'Baby health is Texas wealth'?and
Mississippi has started a competition to
secure a slogan for that State. North
Dakota reports plans for a Statewide
essay contest in the public schools. I"
a few State campaigns the State Federa*
tion of Women's clubs, the State university
extension department, the State
health officials and those who are especialy
intersted in education are all cooperating
in the baby week campaign.
"Many large cities are going to have
a baby week. Definite plans are under
way in Albany, Baltimore. Boston. Milwaukee,
Clevland. Minneapolis, Philadelphia,
Richmond, San Francisco,
Washington and other cities. New York
had a successful baby week in 1914 and
will probably hold another this year in
the late spring.
"In its suggestions for baby week
observance the children's bureau lays
special emphasis on the opportunity it
affords for extending permanent work
for infant welfare, such as infant welfare
stations, visiting nursing, special
nursing and instructions for prospective
mothers, city inspection of milk, special

STATEMENT OF RECEIPTS
AND EXPENDITURES OX ROAD
As was stated in the last issue of The
Herald and News we are printing today
an itemized statement ot the receipts
and expenditures on the road from
Newberry to the steel bridge.
iThere appears a deficit which the
merchants and business men of Newberry
should readily make good. This |
is a fine road and if the men of Newberry
would go out over it they would
readily make up the deficit. It would
take a very small amount from each
one to make it up. This is a very important
road for the business of the
city and fhey tell us that it is now
really in better condition than it has
ever been. We have not seen it since
it has been completed. fWe were out
there while the work was being done

disbursements. As already str-ted, the

It lias been the custom of the Southern
Womans' Magazine for some time
to conduct each year a series of vacation
tours for their representatives. This
is a somewhat novel plan as it does not
have any contest feature, but is a definite
offer to their representatives.
This year there will be two tours,
a Western tour and an Eastern tour.
The Eastern tour embracing Philadelphia,
Washington, Atlantic City, Niagara
Falls, Toronto, Canada, Great Lakes,
Thousands Islands, Montreal, Albany,
Daylight trip down the Hudson river
to Xew York city, spending three days
in Xew York, our party will go by sea
over the Old Dominion line to Norfolk,
up the James river to Richmond, returning
by way of Chattanooga.
The Western tour will embrace Salt
Lake City, four days' tour of magnificent
Yellowstone Park, Royal Gorge,
Denver, Colorado Springs, Cripple
Creek, returning via. Chicago.
These tours are given with all expenses
paid by the Magazine company.
Full particulars of either tour will be
sent upon request by the Southern Woman's
Magazine, Nashville, Tenn.
