enrollment two years ago will not answer
for the approaching primary.
There is a new enrollment. Better
attend to this matter at once if you
have not already done so.
fWe judge from the editorials in
The State and the Record that these
two big dailies are getting uneasy
?for their candidate for governor.
Well, really there is some occasion to
(be alarmed. ' It is no easy road the
governor is traveling. He needs to
ihave a few of the rough places taken
out Just how much these editorial
utterances are helping him we are
not prepared to say.'
This is a time when the officials and
<iie citizens generally should cooperate
in cleaning up the town.
(After the continuous rains there are
many places in the yards and in the
streets and in the alleys that should
have attention. Aim the health of the
town is at stake. This^ matter should
. not he delayed. A little precaution
and preventive may prove a blessing.
The authorities should take the lead
and we believe they will have the
hearty cooperation of the people gen
erally. Do it now.
A systematic cleaning up of tiie
town is what is needed just now for
the health of the community. There
is no greater asset than a citizen'r
ship of good strong and healthy men
and women. A gentleman said to us
only the other day, if a man had a
million dollars in one of the banks and
no health or some disease that he
knew was gradualy hut surely eating
out !his life and unless checked the
end was very near, he would give
that entire million for a healthy body
and a good digestion. Those who
have health do not anrecmate what
possession they have until it is gone.
Clean up. It helps the appearance
as well as promotes health.

1 ' ?
Gov. Manning had a colloquy at the
Barnwell meeting with Dr. Patterson
about the asylum. The crowd applauded.
Therefore Wanning had the
CT(^wd and will carry Barnwell.
Fine logic. The governor is not making
a football of politics out of the
asylum. That would be wrong,
There does not seem to be entire
harmony and good will existing
among the governor and the adjutant
r- _ . ...
general and the assistant adjutant
general. In fact the assistant has resigned
and there has been som correspondence
betwen the governor and j
the adjutant general which is said to :
he interesting. Brethren should j
dwell together in unity.
Wiiat a great time this would he to
drag the roads. 'Pity the people will
be too busy to give just a little time
to this very important matter. Even
a little of it would do good.
We notice that the governor is urging
that the boys of the National
Guard now at Styx be sent to the bor
der. If there is no use for them T-*e
can see no good reason in sending
them. Tiie ^var scare seems to "be
about oyer ard there are already over
I a hundred thousand at the border.
Why send more?

I which attacks the root of the cotton
i and if the attack be severe causes the
cotton to wilt and die. In many instances
where the attack is not si
severe the stalk survives, but it is
so weakened by the disease that It is
not able to produce a normal crop.
I saw some fields last year in which
at least 20 per cent of the stalks
died and the damage to the crop ir?
the infested fields was something like .
50 per cent.
The loss to cotton growers from <
this disease is enormous. A fewyears
ago the loss in Georgia was estimated
to be one milion dollars.
This has been reduced by improvei
methods and improved seed to about
one half million.
The loss in South Carolina is probably
nearly as great. Much work ia
being done by tlie State Entomologists
of the different states investigating
this disease and in experiments
looking to its control. These experiments
have proven that to control the '
disease it is necessary first to rotate
crops. The infected fields should be
planted to corn, wheat, rye, oats,
velvet beans, peanuts or Iron ana
Brabham cowpeas. These crops will
not suDDort the wilt fundus, nor in
crease the number of Nematode
worms, which cause the wilt to be
more destructive. After planting in
some of these crops for a few years it
will then be reasonably safe to plant
in cotton again provided a good wilt
resistant strain of cotton be planted.
There are a number wilt resistant;
strains of cotton, which have been
bred up by the experiment stations.
These strains when planted after a
good rotation as mentioned above,
I are giving very satisfactory results,

With, the passage south of the New
York-New Orleans limited of the
Southern railway and the passage
north of the Seaboard Air Line's own
fast train leaving here about 7
o'clock the Seaboard Air Line closed
its trestle over the Wateree at Camden
until further notice. Early this
morning the Jacksonville-New York
train of tne SeaDoard nortnooumi was
parked in Columbia and the opposite
train southbound was parked at Camden.
This caused the Southern railway
to change the routing of its detoured
main line trains, and today
they passed Columbia using Atlantic
Coast Line tracks instead of the Seaboard
Air Line tracks, as yesterday.

Southern's branch (the old Three C's;

The Seaboard >Air Line railway offices
in Columbia said yesterday that
the trestle over the 'Wateree at Camden
was being carefully guarded.
Yesterday alternoon several irams
were held up, and not allowed to pass
until an inspection was made. The
trains passed over safely. The same
high waters that knocked down the
trestle over the Catawba for the
Southern railway must pass under the
Wateree trestle at Camden, and these
high waters are feared and last night
passage over the trestle was discontinued.
Various reports reached Columbia
yesterday of the trestles at Alston
and Shelton of the Southern railway
over the Broad river, but these reports
were vague and indefinite and
could not be established. It is said
that the water is so high at Alston
that from a distance it can not b?

merely covered. i
FLOOD'S DEATH LIST
Bat Cave Reports*Loss of Ten Lives?

Putting it at $12,000,009.
Asheville, July 18.?The death list
from the floods in several Southeastern
States is growing rapidly as
news comes in from isolated districts.
Nineteen additional drownings reportj
ed today brought the known deaths to
34 and dispatches that the town ol
Chimney Rock, in Rutherford county,
X. C., has been literally washed away,
has led to the belief that the casualty
list will be much greater.
First word reaching the ouside
i world from the Hickory-Lenoir-MorI
ganton region of North Carolina,
j brought the news that $4,000,000 dam!
age had been done in that section by

j Two lives were lost.
j Eight additional deaths are reportj
ed from Bat Cave, a village in Hender

North Carolina: two from /Volga,
small town in Buncombe county; four
from Brevard and three from the
i Hickory Nut Gap section. In addition
I unverified reports say three lives
were lost below Marshall, N. C., in the
overturning of a boat.

evening that eight people lost their

more than half of the houses
of the village having been washed
away. He says that people who have |
money to buy provisions have no way
of getting them, tfle highways on
both sides of Bat Cave having been
washed away in several sections. It
is feared that the Bat Cave section
will reveal a heavy loss of life when
full communication has been established.
Later reports from the Bat Cavt.
section, which includes the village ol
Chimney Rock, two miles from Bat
Cave, state that every effort is being
made to reach the flood sufferers
there with food supplies. Two car
loads of provisions were sent ovei
from Hendersonville this afternoon,
being transferred from wagon to
wagon across bridgeless streams.
The report from Spartanburg that
the $25,000 scenic highway recently
constructed to the foot of Chimney
Rock was destroyed by the flood is
confirmed by a dispatch from Hendersonville
tonight. It is also stated that
two laborers lost their lives in a land
