S. A. NETTLES, Editor.
WEDNESDAY, April 9,1890.
Newspaper controversies are fre
quently provocative of good results,
and when conducted with the proper
spirit, eliminated of all billingsgate
and personalities, and the pure inten
tion is to improve and benefit, no
harm can, as a rule, result; but, on the
other hand, when one, from purely
personal motives, with his heart full
of evil and malice, and with the pur
pose and desire of belittling and de
grading another person, enters the
field of newspaper controversy, and
cowardly hides behind some nom de
plume, for the purpose of ambushing
and assassinating, it can do no good,
and may do much harm. No man has
a right to say in a newspaper what he
would not say face to face with the
party in question, and in a newspaper
he should be far more careful than
in conversption. A pleasant newspa
per controversy, where fun and pleas
ure is at the root, and where it is di
vested of objectionable personalities,
is always enjoyed, and tends to form
or to make stronger kind feelings and
iendship; but an opposite course
will produce opposite effects.
When, however, one enters upon a
newspaper controversy, he should bear
at leAst two things in view: that the
other party will not be expected to re
ply in milder terms than used in the
atacking communication, and that he
wil also have by right the final reply.
And if a party in a newspaper con
troversy attempts to hide his identity
under a nom de plume, and the attack
pd party should be able to penetrate
that nom de plume and reveal the
real person, it is perfectly legitimate,
'd is one of the possibilities in such
controversies. No man should set
down aught in malice, and after hav
- g written an article for publication,
he should weigh it well, and be ready
o-stand by it, and to take what
asres not men should be the
Bubject of all controversies, and where
fun is intended, nothing should allow
the firt writer, the aggressor, to lose
his equilibrium and get mad; and
when it is sure that theother partyis
~Jnot willing to play at the game, it,
absould atonce bestopped, and if
necessary explanations and apologies
should be :aade.
A controversy divested of malice,
Sand intended for fun or for correcting
viis always enjoyed;
but one which isf maiide un of iittersA
un and personalities and malice,!
while it will be read eagerly by all,
yet it is disgusting to every thought
~. The Clemson college is safe as far
as the courts are concerned. The U.
KaS~npreme court last Monday affirm
ethe decision of the lower court,
rwhieb gives the property to the State.
S Leaving out of the calculation, un-,
Ssasnable weather, disasters and oth
er matters beyond human control, it is
Ssafe to say that anything which has
real merit; for which there is a need,
or want; or for which a want can be
w ceated; and. which sells at a reasona
bile ee, can be profitably advertised
: n t newspapers.
S The Board of Equalization has done
~ ell, and as a consequence Clarendon
Kcounty will appear to the world in a
fj .ar better light than heretofore. The
Saverage vaine of land in this county
for the past four years was about1
S$L.60an acre; now it is nearly
encosidrable of being at its real value,
doubled, or $3.0~2 an acre. It yet lacks.
and as compared with town property,,
we think it may safely be asserted
that town property is returned at
double that of country property.
Some pepein this town, it seems,
desire making the election of a town
council dependent on the probable
apitment of a town clerk. Never!
beoein the history of the town has
~.there been greater need of care in the
1 selection of a council, and only the
best men should be selected. It is
not at all improbable that the next*
council may handle $15,000, in addi
t ion to other important duties. It,
therefore, behooves the people of this
-town to think about this matter and
-to act intelligently.
The Sub-Treasury Scheme.
- The sub-treasury scheme of the
IFarmers' Alliance is beginning to at
tract attention, and as was expected
in the outset it is being criticised and
objected to quite earnestly. It is
pronounced impracticable and vision
ary, its provisions are misstated, the
cry of class legislation is raised against
-it, and upon the whole it is described1
as being an extremely bad measure.
The two principal things which it is'
aimed to accomplish, however, have'
not been disproved, if even disputed,
viz: (1) An increase of the volume
of currency, and (2) enabling the
- armers to avoid throwing their crops
upon the market as soon as they are
harvested. These two things, more
currency and the ability to realize on
*their products without glutting the
markets and depressing prices, the
producers have long needed, and this
the much abused measure provides,
and for its enactment the farmers of
the country will contend.- Cotton

Cost of a Canning Factory.
To te &ldor of The .News and C(w'ier:--As
ny article on the canning industry has
xwakened such interest and you solicit
urther information for your readers, I shall
endeavor to be more explicit and give lig
I herewith submit estimates of cost of
plant and the necessary articles of machinery
for canning 2,000 three-pound or 2,750 two
pound cans per day. Can be used in con
nection with steam or set in brick.
One scalding kettle.
One exhaust kettle.
One process kettle.
Two scalding baskets.
Two exhaust crates.
Two process crate,..
Three furnace doors.
Three grate bars.
Two gasoline firepots.
Two soldering machines.
Two three-pound soldering cappers.
Two capping irons.
One forging stake.
One forging handle.
Two pair can tongs.
Vice, hammer, etc.
This outfit can be purchased in Baltimore
for $150 f. o. b., and the freight from Balti
more to Charleston by sail will be $2 per ton
of 2,000 pounds. The purchaser can, bv
instructions sent with outfit, put up and
operate it without the aid of skilled help.
It would require fifteen hands to success.
fully operate it, as follows: One processor,
one capper, one tipper, twelve peelers and
packers. The latter could be done by women,
boys or girls. In Maryland processors, cap
pers and tippers receive $2.50 per day, peel
ers ard packers $1 per day, but often farm
ers do their own processing, which could be
done in this case. Thus the farmer, doing
his own processing, could supervise the cap
per and tipper. This labor being simple it
cold be had for $1 per day.
Thus the labor necessary for packing thc
above number of cans would consist of:
One processor (farmer himself)......S 2.50
One capper and tipper, S1 each...... 2.0(
Twelve hands (peelers and packers).. . 6.0C
Total ... ........... ............$10.5(
We will now figure the cost of raw materi
al, cans, cases, labels, etc., required in pack
ing 2,000 3-pound cans per day. Tomatoes
will be taken for example:
One hundred bushels tomatoes, at 20
cents per bushel............$20.00
Two thousand 3-pound cans ........ 45.00
Labor in packing................... 10.50
Labels, solder, etc................... 4.00
Eighty-three cases (capacity 24 cans to
the case)....................... 7.92
Now $87.42 is what it costs to pack 2,000
3-pound cans of tomatoes per day (labor and
material.) Thisincludes pay for the farmer
at $2.50 per day. Also S20 is included for
his raw material. Thus he is paid for his
labor and material. We now market these
2,000 cans, consisting of 83 cases, and re
ceive $1.65 per case, the present market
price. Thus we have $136.95, or a profit of
$49.53, a pretty good showing for one day's
work. Where one has to buy wood or coal
it would reduce these figures, but a profit of
$40 per day can be counted on, even where
one has to furnish all labor and buy his raw
material, including wood and coal.
1 would advise farmers to plant their own
crop and not depend entirely on his neigh
bor's for his canning supply; he can then
realize a profit on his product in two ways.
I would not advise farmers to pack corn, the
labor and expense attached to packing this
article is so much that they could not com
pete with the Western packers; it also re
quires expensive machinery for silking and
removing the corn from the cob, and as they
have every facility and pack nothing else,
there would not be ai much money in it as
there would be in utilizing the same acreage
for tomatoes or other vegetables. Now we
will take the protits on an acre of tomatoes
grown for canning purposes: In the first
place, the plants can be set out af ter all dan
gr of fro.st is passed; the farmer can nowv
obtain a seed that wilr'yield from 300) to '700
bushels per acre; for an average say 450
bushels; he disposes of his product either
by canning it himself or selling to his neigh
bors at 20 cents e..-heldhus. be realiim

diferent from the prese-nt miode of dispios
ing of his produce. Sometimes he does and
very often he doesn't re-alize, but finds him
self in debt; even so, he can ship as long as
he finds it protitable, and when it does nol
frther pay to ship the surplus can be used
for canning purposes.
As to the capital one has to have in order
to undertake the canning business, I will say
that the cost is in the ('an, not the out fit. 'X
will figure on the amount necessary for one

The cans can be purchased on six months'
time, where parties cant close account w ith

I know of no business where so small an
investment will yield such satisfactory re
sults. If your people wish information as tc
outfits they can address me, and I will turn

AGREEABLE PEoPLE.-We all know
people whom it is pleasant to meet;
people from whom we are sure to re
ceive a smile, a kind word, a cordial
hand-shake, or some other token of
good-wil. When one is depressed
in spirits, or, as the common saying
is, "blue," the meeting with a genial,
merry-hearted friend has a magical
effect; indeed, I have known the en
counter with such a person to turn
the whole current of one's life.
Agreeability is dependent upou many
conditions; it may be inherent, it may
be the result of judicious early educa
tion, or of pleasant surroundings, or
of a happy combination of circum
stances, but all will agree that it is a
desirable quality, and whether inhe
rent or not, should be carefully culti
vated. There are people whose
mighty efforts to be agreeable are so
apparent and distressing as to defeat
their object. Such people should
bear in mind that agreeability must
proceed from the heart, and in a
grown person is the result of contin
ued practice. One feels so comforta
ble after having said or done some
thing to brighten the pathway of an
other, that it pays one's self to be
Some people allow all their little
annoyances to affect their conduct to
ward others, whether their unfortu
nate friends are to blame or not. I
was once visiting a charming family.
All its members, with one exception,
were interesting and agreeable. The
Ionly son of the house was in business
in the town in which they lived. If
his affairs had moved prosperously
through the day he came home in a
pleasant, entertaining mood, but if
anything had annoyed him he was
outrag'eously disagreeab~le and rude,
no miaiter how many guests~ were
present. The discomniture of his
mother and sisters may well be imag
ined; indeed, as the dinner hour ap
proached they were in a state of ner
vousness, which disappeared inmmedi
ately if the "tyrant" came in with a
bright face; otherwise it continued
until he had relieved us of his disa
greeable presence. If the fact had
not been so positively demonstrated
to me, I would not have believed it
possible that one disagrecable prson
could have counteraicted the influence
of four agreeable people. I believe
that the young man's disposition wa
the result of continued indulgence by
his mother and sisters. He had ty
Irannized over them for years. and
had become a powerful despot in the
"Tired and cross" is a common ex
pression, and most of us know what
it means. A friend of mine, a most
agreeable woman, says that when she
finds herself getting "tired and cross,"
she takes a nap, a bath, a walk, or a
drive, goes to see some one whose
walk in life is less pleasant thin her
own-does anything ditherent from
the work that has tired and worried
her. In this way she preserves health
andl temper, governs well her children,
and keeps her entire household inl a
state of peace and happiness.
Many parents do not realize that in
training' their children a regard for
others should be inistilled into their
minds. A spoiled, selfish child may'
be very dear to its parents, but after
the parents have passed awaiy and the
child has become a disagreeable man
or woman, what disintereste~d parties
will toler'ate the selfish, y'ruical
ways of such a person ?
There are people whom have hosts of
friends-people whose presence is al
ways sought by both old and young
people who are supposed to have
been "lucky," when in fact they are
simply unselfish and agreeable.-Lil

?Lakes many lives miserable, and often leads to
self destruction. Distress after eating, sick head
ache, heartburn, sour stomach, mental depres
sion, etc., are caused by this very common and
increasing disease. Hood's Sarsaparilla tones the
stomach, creates an appetite, promotes healthy
digestion, relieves sick headache, clears the
mind, and cures the miost obstinate cases of dys
Ipepsia. Read the following:
- "[ have been troubled with dyspepsia. I had
but little appetite, ani what I did eat distressed
me. or did mo little good. In an hour after eating
I would experience a faintness or tired, all-gone
feeling, as though I had not eaten anything.
Hood's Sarsaparilla did meo an iummense amount
of good. It gave me an appetite, and my food
relished and satisfied the craving I had previously
experienced. It relieved me of that faint, tired,
ali-gone feeling. I have felt so much better since
I took Hood's Sarsaparilla, that I am happy to
recommend it." 0. A. P.&ox, Watertown, M'lass.
