It is not yet too late to sow cow 1
peas. Newberry county already has
more peas sown probably than ever i
before in any single year, but there I
are yet many acres that should be !
seeded to this valuable hay crop and j
soil builder. If you have never tried i
it iea*e at least a few acres this fall |
uncut and when the vines are mature I
turn them under and then harrow in !
oat* ana vetch or clover ana rye ior
a winter cover crop. This winter
cover crop will keep much valuable
plant food from laching away and at
the same time the legumes will be
gathering free nitrogen from the air
and storing it in the soil for next
year's crop. The rye and oats will
conserve plant food already in the
soil and will add much humus when
turned in the spring. If farmers will
fellow this practice a few years they
"will be independent of commercial
fertilizer except phosphoric acid on
clay lands and acid and potash on
Begin now to look out for seed for
this winter's cover crop. Don't leave
your fields bare to be leaching away
- and getting poorer all the time.
Don't fail to plant a fall crop of
Irish potatoes. The Lookout Moun
tain is an excellent variety for the
late crop. As a preventive against
scab soafc the potato for two hours in
a Eolution of formalin, one pint to 33
gallons of water before planting.
Be sure to can all your surplus
fruits and vegetables. Stop this great
waste and lay up something for tho
rainy days of next winter and spring.

j}?oundiii?r for the Peacli Tree Borer.
Clemson College, July 13.?Between !
July 1 and 10 pull up the earth!
around the base of the peach tree to J
a height of eight inches; take these ;
mounds down October 15. The reason I
for the above recommendation is as j
1. The peach tree borer has four
lite history stages, (a) The eggs laid \
in the fall hatch into (b) worms;
these worms when full grown come
out ol the tree into the ground and |
fGrm the (c) pupa or resting stage.
This stage is passed about an inch
from the tree and about an inch below
the surface of the soil. From
these pupae the (d) full grown, beautiful,
clearwinged moths emerge,
which lay the eggs for the next year's
generation. There is only one generation
If you mound too early many of
the worms in the tree will work upward.
They begin to come out into
the soil July 1 and continue to come
out until about August 22. If you
mound the trees as above stated then
the pupa has about eight inches of
soil over it, through which the moth
can not dig to come to the surface.
The female lays her eggs on the bark

are nearly all laid by October 1 and
hatched by October 15, it is readily
seeD that when the mounds are taken
down the worms are eight inches
high on the tree and if the tree is examined
the second week of November j
any worms, may be easily located and
working in the outer bark they can

Chattahoochee River Threatens to
Inundate Streets of the City of
Macon, G^., July 9.?Another serious
flood situation has developed at
Columbus tonight, where the Chattahoochee
river is not only threatening
two big dams, but is threatening
to flood the city of Columbus. Streets
o? Girard, Ala., are already under
water, according to a direct report
to this city.
A rise of two feet in the Chattahoochee
river will put the Colunibus
gas plant out of commission. A nvefoot
rise will put the Chattahoochee
river into the streets of Columbus,
and there is no forecast tonight that
the water may not go to that point.
Reports from West Point at 5 o'clock
indicate that a big swell is 'due to
pass Columbus by 6 o'clock Monday

ASSURANCE OF VICTORY
EXPRESSED BY TEUTONS
Military Correspondent of the Berlin
Zeitung am Mittajr Summarizes
the Present Situation in War.
Berlin, July G (via London. July 7;.
?The military correspondent of the
Zcitmig am Mittag, commenting 0:1
the war situation, writes:
"The lighting on all fronts is increasing
in extent and violence. The
enemy everywhere is attempting to
throw fresh troops into the struggle
which seems to be approaching nearer
and nearer its maximum intensity.
The mightiest exertions are being
made on all sides to force a decision
and the tension can scarcely Become
After summarizing the official reports
from the various theatres of
war, the correspondent continues: "it
still is too early for a final verdict
upon the situation as the struggles on
the principal fronts still are in progress.
The Germans, however, hitherto
have been able to hold up the
enemy's advance on the west, as well
as on the south and east. Neither
British, French, Russians nor Italians
nave attained large or aecisive successes,
while in places where the
central powers have assumed the offensive,
as in Volhynia and south o!
the Dniester, their operations have
been conducted with success.
"This situation enables us to look
forward with a certain amount of assurance
and with cairn confidence to
further developments of the fighting.
We do not dare, however, overlook
the fact that our opponents are making
mighty efforts and throwing in all
available forces to attain success. Our
troops on all fronts are faced by
numerically superior forces and
therefore are confronted with the
prospect of further heavy fighting."
The correspondent devotes comparatively
more space to the combats
on the east front than to those on
the west, declaring that the Russians'
attack aeainst Field Marshal von
Hindenburg, Prince Leopold and
Count- Botbmer give every evidence
from the extent and masses of the
troops employed that an offensive of
a larger scale is contemplated.
Still Fighting Hindenfonrg.
[He adds that the fighting along von
Hindenburg's front still is in progress,
.but asserts that the attack
against Prince LeoDold's armies aD
pears to have bee^i finally and decis- j
ively repulsed with the heavies:
The fighting continues on the upper
Styr, he says, and the Russians were
able to cross the river and gain a
foothold in one place, but the coun- !
terattack already has begun. The
Russians were thrown back in Volhynia
and on the Stripa froi-c, he concludes,
and the victory at Tlumach,
