IT IS ALL OVER
- Just as the day was breaking
on last Sunday morning the
iwavels in both branches of the
General Assembly fell, and the
session of 1907 crossed over, and
into the past. It was a session
of record-breaking, and one
.which will be remembered long
after the participants have been
removed from the field of action.
There was a tremendous intro
duction of bills into the legisla
tive hopper, but all that went in
did not come out to become laws.
There was nothing of the rash
spirit manifested, all seemed
bent to do what was best for the
State, and although there was
much difference of opinion as to
what was for the best, there ran
all the way through the session
a spirit of patriotism.
The questions of more moment
than all others was the dispen
sary and the repeal of the lien
law. The liqor question excit
ing more interest than any other
because it had been an issue in
the primary, and it has been a
source of political stock-in-trade
for a number of years. The op
ponents of the State dispensary
claimed, in the election of Gov
ernor Ansel, and Attorney Gen
eral Lyon the people had signi
tied their condemnation of the
State dispensary, and their pre
ference for local option. The
State dispensaryites, however,
contended that there was no
significance in the result of the
last election, and they made a
hard fight to sustain the machine
on the Congaree; they never
did give up, but continued to
struggle until the bill known as
the "Carey-Cothran Bill" was
ratified and ready for His Ex
cellency's signature which be
came attached in less than ten
minutes after the act was rati
The repeal of the lien law was
popular in the lower House, but
the Senate was not ready for
drastic legislation, calculated to
injure the commercial interests
of the State. Those favoring the
repeal woui& strike down a busi
ness system which has been. mi
vogue for forty-five years, and
is as much an important part of
the business system as the blood
is a part of the human system;
let out the blood from the human
system all at once, and the body
will collapse; strike down the
lien law, the blood of the busi
ness system, and the commnercial
body will collapse. Those favor
ing the repeal contend that the
people demanded legislation
which would wipe from the
Statute books 'this iniquitouis
business that has done so much
towards making labor conditions
bad, and if it was wiped out la
bor would be plentiful and cheap.
The Senate did not take to
this view, and w'as inclined to
be conservative. There was a
disposition to repeal the lien
law, but it recognized its effect
upon a vast proportion of the
citizens of this State who had
their entire interests involved in
-the lien system, the conserva
tive portion consented to a re
peal to take effect January 1st,
1909, but the extreme element
would not consent, and rather
than to give .a reasonable time
for those engaged in the lien
business to adjust themselves
to-the new conditions, they voted
c et the law stand as it was

into history as a "hav?ag-done

at this writing to go into detail,
as to all that was done. The
State tax levy was lowered one
half mill, the Confederate pen
sioners get 825,000 more, and
the door has been opened to all
need y widows of Confederate sol
diers, which of course wili admit
to the pension rolls a great many
women who have not heretofore
been getting the benefit,
There was a large number of
acts looking to the bonding of
school districts which was an
indication that the country is
awake to the need of good school
facilities. and that there will be
an improvement all over the
State along this line. Of the two
hundred acts, most of them re
late to local matters and have
no general application. Of course
-no legislature can adjourn with
out becoming subject to criticism
but the only criticisms we have
been able to see thus far-. comes
from the State dispensary-ites
who are sore over defeat, and
they are making all manner of
foolish threats, but they will

Governor Ansel ordered every
dispensary in the State closedI,
and they will stay closed until
the new county boards have
been appointed and qualified,
and the liquor system wiill be un
this new system the liquor busi
ness cannot be managed without
scandal, the people will rise and
demand a change either for in
dividual control, or prohibition.
There is one thing certain the
people of this State will not
stand for corruption, they are
willing to give the new system
a fair trial, they even feel now
that as it has come down to local
control, it is their duty to aid in
a decent enforcement of the law,
but if it cannot be decently con
ducted, and it does not have the
effect of purifying the liquor
system then there will be a de
mand to put it out just as there
was to put out the scandal
breeling machine in Columbia.
We hope that every citizen
will see to it that the new sys
tem is a bar to the lawless traflic
in liquor, as a business proposi
tion, every gallon of illicit liquor
sold is that much being stolen
from the taxpayers. Then let us
see to it, if we must put up with
the sale of liquor, that we get
the whole revenue. The new
county board can be aided very
much in the discharge of their
duties if the people will keep a
lookout to put down illegal sales.
The new system cannot start off
in its operation as smoothly as
it will be able to run after it has
been in existance sometime, it
will be like everything else,
after it gets started the loose
places will be tightened up.

In looking over some family papers
and bundles of old letters I discovered
one by Mrs. Jeffereys of Blarney cas

sembled together In College green and
all along the avenue leading to my
brother's house. The male part of the
insurgents were armed with pistols,
cutlasses, sledges, saws, crowbars and
every other weapon necessary to break

men were all of them armed with
their aprons full of paving stones. This
ferocious and furious mob began to
throw showers of stones into my broth

his horses. They wounded my brother
in the temple in College green, and if
he had not sheltered himself by hold

death before he arrived (through the
back yard) at his own house, where
with several smithy sledges they were

ready to fix up to his lamp iron to hang

Hot water bathing is beneficial In
counteracting the effect of a chill.
First, it undoes another mischief work
ed by the chill. The latter has sent too
much blood internally, so risking con
gestion. Heat brings the blood to the
surface. Heat is not life, but It is
one of the factors of life. Indeed, dis
solution always occurs when the in
ternal bodily' temperature is greatly
lowered. Heat will not keep a body
alive and great heat will kill It. In
many morbid states of the system, as
rheumatism, hot baths are 9f great
service. Warm baths are useless. The
heat should be as great as can be
borne without pain.

It Men Were Insects.
Out of every five animals in the ani
mal kingdom four are Insects, of which
there are 200,000 species. In a human
world of that sort for every gigantic
man there would be four pygmies and
of the pygmies 200,000 distinct races.
These pygmies would be made up of a
head, a middle body and a hind body,
each of which would be composed of
hard, shell-like rings, and because their
bodies were thus divided or Insected
they might be called insects. Their
legs would grow out of either the mid
dle body or the hind body. They would
breathe through holes In the middle
body and eat, drink, see, smell, with
all kinds of apparatus made for the
purbose In various and often widely
separated parts of the body. If some
of these pygmies were young, weighed
a pound and ate like a silkworm, they
would in two months devour forty-five
tons of food. It is scarcely remarkable,
therefore, what millions of grasshop
pers will do to a cornfield or gypsy
moths to an apple orchard.

WHEN FERTHIZERS SHOULD BE
As a general rule, which has but few
exceptions, the greater part of the fer
tilizer should bc applied to the soil be
fore planting the crop it is intended to
benefit. This rule is not only in accord
with theoretical considerations, but Is also
abundantly sustained in actual practice,
as shown by carefully conducted field ex
periments instituted for the express pur
pose of ascertaining the truth, says Hon.
R. J. Redding, Director Georgia Experi
ment Station, Department of Agriculture,
in Virginia-Carolina Fertilizer Almanac.
The theory underlying the rule is the
fact that most of the ingredients compos
ir.g a commercial fertilizer are not im
mediately soluble and availible, but must
undergo certain chemical changes in the
soil before the plant food will be in the
proper condition to be taken up by the
roots of the plants. This is particularly
true in regard to salts of potash, and In
less degree to acid phosphate. It is a
fact, also, that some forms of potash,
notably kainit, cause chemical changes
in the condition of the plant food already
present in a soil, whereby the before In
soluble and non-available plant food al
ready in the soil, becomes available. -
The organic substances which are large
ly used in the make up of commercial
fertilizers for the purpese of supplying
nitrogen to the plants-such as cotton
seed meal, dried blood. fish scrap, tank
ag6, etc., also require time in which to
undergo chemical decomposition and such
change of form as will enable the roots.
to appropriate the nitrogen. Even sul
phate of ammonia, a highly soluble chemi
cal salt, which sometimes enters 'into
the composition of a fertilizer in a very
limited amount, must undergo a complete
chemical decomposition in the soil before
the plants can make any use of the nitro
gen, which it contains in the form of
ammonia sulphate. This must be con
verted into nitrate, or nitrate of lime.
Nitrate of soda is the one chemical
fertilizer salt that is immediately avail
able, producing a very prompt effect when
applied to a growing crop (and It should
be applied to none other).
Acid phosphate and potash may be ap
plied to the soil and bedded on from two
to six weeks before planting time. It
is claimed by some experts that potash
salts may be applied with better results
even several months before planting. A
more practical and convenient rule, how
ever, is to apply a complete fertilizer
from one to three-weeks before planting
the crop, when the latter is a corn, cot
ton. tobacco, or other summer-growing
crop, always taking-care to mix the fer
tilizer thoroughly with the soil of the
open bedding furrow in which it shall be
applied and then "listing,', or throwing
two furrows on it.
Experiments on the farm of the Georgia
Experiment Station. projected for the
purpose of comparing on the one hand
the effectiveness of a complete fertilizer
applied two weeks before planting, and,
on the other hand,s-the effectiveness of
the same quantity of the same fertilizer
applied In the furrows with the seed,
were followed by an unexpected and sur
prising result-viz., the cotton seeds plant
ed on the plats In which the fertilizer
had been applied and bedded on two
weeks before, came up quicker and gave
a more uniform stand of more vigorous
plants than resulted on the plats In which

the fertilizer was applied In the furrows
with the seeds. While this result was not
contemplated, it was quickly 2xplained
by the fact that the fertilizer that had
been in the ground two weeks had under
gone the chemical changes already allud
ed to, and its plant food was ready for
the immediate wants of the young pants.
This result suggests that it may be ex
pedient, in any case, to apply a small
cuantity-saY 20 to 25 pounds-of nitrate
of soda in the same furrow with the cot
ton or corn seeds, which may be done
with perfect safety with cotton seeds,
and without danger to corn if not placed
in immediate contact with the seed.
APPLYING FERTILIZER AT THE
TIME OF PLANTING.
This may be understood to mean either
applying the fertilizer, bedding on it and
immediately planting the seed; or it may
refer to the practice of putting the fer
tilizer in the furrow with the seed. In
the latter case, there is always a mani
fest danger that the coming growing sea
son may be unusually dry, in which event
the fertilizer, being so-lightly covered,
may not be dissolved and properly dis
seminated through the soil. It may also
follow that the fertilizer being so concen
trated-en masse, as it were-around the
tender rootlets of the young plants that
the latter may be injured, or "burneu "
a not inconsiderable danger. The plan
is not advisable except when a very
light application Is to be made per aere.
This caution is especially applicable to
seeds that are planted in very shallow
furrows and bnt lightly covered, such as
cotton, and it is generally safer to inter
pose some soil. or. better, deposit the fer
tilizer in one furrow and plant the seeds
in a furrow immediately beside; or. vice
versa, plant the seeds first in the furrow,
and then the er in a furrow close
beside it. BU preferred plan io to
bed on the fertilizer, and then plant the
seeds, after harrowing down the beds.
I have often applied 50 to 100 pounds of
a "complete" fertilizer per acre in the
furrow with the cotton seeds; but it was
"away back" in the late sixties and curly
seventies when fertilizers sold at $40 to $60
a ton, and very light applications were
supposed to be in the interest of a wise
economy. We did not know much about
fertilizers In those days. and were iraid
to "put too much guano on the cc t4on.'.
That time has passed and gone. a-:: the
up-to-date farmer has,found that Iu and
600 pounds of fertilizer for cott-.. a
properly balanced high-grade fertilizer, to
each acre of cotton Is not dangerous or
excessive, but simply liberal and judi
clous. Indeed, it Is a question of simple
arithmetic. If 100 pounds per cere is
profitable, and it costs no more labor to
cultivate an acre with 500 pounds of ap
plied fertilizer. then why not increase
the amount invested In fertilizers, and,
if thought advisable, reduce the area and
the labor account?
Now, the well-informed farmer only
wants to know if the fertilizer be proper
ly balanced for the crop .he wishes to
grow, and Is sold at a fair price, and he
invests liberally, just as he would do in
buying anything at such a price that he
may sell at a profit of from 50 to 10 per
centum and upward. A high-grade. hon
est fertilizer will meet this requirement.
There is another justification for the
practice of applying fertilizers at the
time of planting-viz., when the farmer
has failed to put in his order at the prop
er time. He may then. according to the
proverb-"better late than not at all"
put. in the fertilizer with the seed, or at
the time of planting.
