- Clover Rally.
On April the 27th was >held at
Hodges, 'S. :C., under auspices of County
Agent C. B. Faris, a clover rally,
and I feei that it will he helpful to
some of the Newberry county farmers
to give a short write up of what I
saw and learned at that meeting.
The meeting was held at the farm
of Mr. B. S. Hodges one of Greenwrknd
'c ni rvzt nrrtSTPSKivo farrrisrc \Ir
Hodges has learned the basic principle
of economic farming, that of
soil building by the use of winter
According to <Mr. Hodges' own
statement, he bought a very poor
farm and about 9 years ago commenced
to grow crimson clover on
that farm. Of course he did me>et
with very good success at first but he
*iad faith in clover and determined to
make it succeed.
By perserverance and good judg
ment, he has succeeded possibly be- i
yond bis own expectations. He is now i
growing clover successfully on practically
his whole plantation, and his
soil lias been changed from "poor" to
one of productivity.
l?and that produced 4 to 6 hundred
povndg of seed cotton with an application
of 3 to 4 hundred pounds of
commercial fertilizer is now producing
12 to 15 hundred pounds to the
acre without any fertilizer except a
light application of 16 per cent acid.
Laet year, 1915, Mr. Hodges produced
on his farm, cotton, corn, hay,
grain, etc. at market prices, worth
oeiween 7 ana s cnousand collars,
and used only 10 tons of 16 per cent
acid that cost him $110.00, on the entire
The clover took the nitrogen from
the air and stored it in the soil, and;
the humus added by turning under

I the clover released enough potash for
the use of the plant, besides helping
to conserve moisture and rendering j
the land in a better mechanical condition
for the growth of the crop.
Now, I am writing this, not with the,
idea of boosting Mr. Hodges' farm, but1
with the hope that some one will read !
it and resolve to do likewise.
Yields can ^e doubled and the fertilizer
bill cut in half by growing j
summer and winter legumes and:
turning them under, just as Mr.
Hodges and many others are doing.
So I hope that every farmer in Newberry
county will plan to sow some
clover this fall..
In my eagerness to tell something j
of Mr. Hodges' farm and. results I j
almost forgot to tell about the atten-|

at least 1,000 farmers and business
men. coming from several counties.

TOPIC ODER DISCUSSION
A literary club was recently organized
by women in a suburb of Boston
For a while everything went along
One evening, while the Browns
were having dinner, Mr. Brown asked:
"Well,, Inez, did you have a pleas
ant meeting at your club v this afternoon?"
"Oh, yes, dear!", replied Mrs.
Brown, with great enthusiasm, "it
was really a' splendid meeting. About
i the best we have had, i tninK.
"Indeed," said the husband . who
I was not a firm believer in women's
: clubs; "what was the topic under dis-1

Mrs. Brown couldn't seem to rerrfem-1

Warehouseman Says Non-Resident is
Vntiflpri I'nripr Constitution
Contending that the section barrir.g
non-residents of South Carolina from
securing a license is unconstitutional,
John L. McLaruin, State warehouse
commissioner, yesterday filed with F.!

The letter to the insurance commis-!
"Dear Sir: I am inclosing herewith
an application of Philip l^aTourette
of New York for a broker's license,'1
under the act of March 2, 1916. |;
"You will recall that at the hearing
before the legislative committee I ex- ,
pressed doubt as' to the constitution- i
ality of the following clause in this ,
.... i *
act, 10 wic: ^
" 'Under the terms of this act only . ]
such persons may be licensed as are (
residents of this State and have been j
licensed insurance agents for at least
two years.' ,
Not Vital Section.
"This provision, if held unconstitu- ! .
tional, would not In any way impair j,
the validity of the remainder of the ,,
law. . . J j
"Mr. LaTourette is connected with ?
Samuels, Cornwall & Stevens, one of ]
the largest insurance firms in the <
United -States. They are carry ing c
State cotton, and I am satisfied that, j (
with power to inspect and operate in :,
South Carolina, reTief can be had until;
the next session of the general assembly,
when further legislation may be ,
secured, if expedient at that time. !
"I am of the opinion that the clause
to which I refer is unconstitutional,
"1. The federal constitution guarantees
to each citizen in every State the
same rights and privileges enjoyed by
eacli citizen in any particular State.
The citizen of New York has the right
to do business on the same terms and
with equal opportunity as the citizen j
of South Carolina, and ;vice versa. iAs i
a matter of fact, any citizen writing j
insurance in South Carolina can go j
right to New York and get a license j
on the same terms with a citizen of
that State, and you can only restrict
a citizen of New York to the same
terms that are applied to the citizens
of South Carolina. Samuels, Corn
wall & Stevens have licenses in many
other States and have never been refused
a license. They now have a license
in North Carolina.
"2. This clause abridges the privileges
a^d immunities of individual citizens
in the several States.
"3. It is a trade, not a police regulation,
in any sense o 1 the word. It is
not aimed at a corporation?an artificial
creature?but at a man whose
fundamental rights are protected by
the constitution in. the pursuit of a
business recognized by the act itself
I "Twenty-five years ago most of the
j towns in South Carolina bad license!
j / ^
i fees for -drummers. I tested one of i
i these cases in the courts myself, and j
it was Tield unconstitutional in the j
principles which I have herein laid!
"Spppose, for example, a man lived j
in Charlotte and had an office in Rock
Hill. It would be ridiculous to say
that he could not write insurance unless
he moved to Rock Hill and lived
for two years.
"If Mr. LaTourette can comply with
all of the other requirements of the
act, and I am correct in my vltfws,
then you would be violating your oath
to uphold the federal constitution in
denying him the right to pursue a ,
legitimate business on the same terms
and with equal opportunity as a clti
zen of South Carolina.
"Under the present situation, the
law creates a monopX' for local insurance
agents, who seem powerless
to serve the public. I think, in a matter
of this kind, that the interests of
the public are paramount, and that
no monopoly created to favor local
agents should be allowed to stand in
the way of the interests of the entire
"Yours very truly,

"It occurre-d at 2 o'clock in the af- J

I never will forget it," declared Dr.
Divver today. "I was a detailed sol- j

out of Newberry with a train of flat
cars. The cars were to be used in
hauling away of the machinery from
the shops of the Confederate government.
The shops were located in
Greenville, and we wanted to carry
them off before the Yankees arrived
and captured them. I
"We were captured by a detach-'
tnent of Yankees under Gen. S. P.
Brown. This detachment was in pursuit
of Jefferson Davis. We saw Mr.
Davis and his cabinet cross the railroad
at Hodges about 12 o'clock that

"Everybody on the train except the
women and children were captured.
