countv. left here last Mlonday morning
for Ch ick Springs, Greenville county, in
obedience to invitations to attend a con

twentv-ive counties of the state organ
ized under regulations issued by the
iBureau of Plant ludustrV and the at
tendance was almost perfect. There are
five cuntieS of the state in which the
work was introduced among the boys.
These counties are: Clarendon, Lee,
Florence. Marlboro and Newberry, rep
resented by the county superintendens
of education respectively. All were
present except Marlboro's representa
The star feature of the convention was
the presence of Dr. S.A. Knapp of Wash
ington. who is at the head of the entire
business. Mr. J. P. C.mpbell of the de
partment at Washington, was also pres
ent. The meeting as a whole was under
the charge and direction of Mr. Tra W.
Williams,. state agent.
The meeting was intensely practical
aad business-like from start to tinish.
The business meetings began Monday
night with a session lasting from nine
0'clock until eleven o'clock. consisting
mainly of oral reports of the county
agents, interspersed here and there with
information from the distinguished vis
itors from Washington. The session was
resumed at nine o'clock Tuesday morn
ing and lasted until nearly one o'clock.
The afternoon session lasted from three
until after six. At the evening sessioE
Mr. .1. P. Campbell gave an illustrated
lecture with scenes from the boy's demn
onstration work similar to that showE
here some time ago by Hon. 0. B. Mar
tin. Reports from the county superin
tendents were called for Wednesday
There was not a single man engaged
in the work that was not called on for
his report. It was inspiring to hear th4
good reports of the work, and what wa
being accomplished. From the abov
account the reader will see that althougl:

meeting closed Mr. C. A. McFadden in
troduced the following resolution
Resolved, That we, the county agent
engaged in Farm Demonstration Wor
in this State, do hereby express on:
hearty and sincefe appreciation to Dr.
S. A. Knapp and Mr. J. P. Campbell foi
their many acts of kindness, both her
and in the past, for tneir personal at,

which has so contributed to our profi
This resolution was unanimouslj
adopted. - A similar resolution was
adopted, in which the present staA
agent, Mr. Ira W. Williams was prais

The guestsof the hotel were treated rA
an excellent barbecue dinner at thi
springs at one o'clock Wednesday. It
the afternoon many of the various rep
resentatives began leaving for theil
I would not close this brief accouni
without saving further some things con
cerning Dr. S. A. Kapp. He is a mag
nificient specimen ol what culture ani
knowledge and hard work combined ca
make of an individual. Dr. Knapp, un
questionably, Is the leading personalita
of the United States today in the Bu
reaui of Plant Inaustry, and he has done
and is still doing more than any othe:
man towards th' progressive develop
ment of this cour ry.
His knowledge of all that pertains t<
this department seems unlimited and il
is an inspiration to hear all that he had
to sy concerning the work. No one car
listen to him without being imnpresse<
with his greatness-great in heart, min4
and soul. To hear him unfold the ideal
relating to agriculture, one cannot hell
but be buoyed up and enthused as hi
describes the wonderful latent.possibil
ities of old mother earth that only re
quires energy, intelligence and educa
tion to unlock these might storehouse
and bank the returns for future great
ness and happiness.
The old idea of education is being
modifed. Formerly, an education wa:
sought for, when sought at all, to fit th<
boy for one of the professions, or to givi
him knowledge enough to seek othea
occupations than the farm. The resul
has been that the boy was taught eithei
directly or indirectly that the farm dii
not need educated intelligence, and that
he should seek other fields of enterprise
That system is no longer thought to be
the best and everything that can be
done is being done to educate the boys
back to a love for and a knowledge a
agriculture. There is no comparison as
between the boy who uses his educatior
along modern lines of thought from at
agricultural standpoint and the boy wh<
aspires to some position for wages. The
bo who uses his brain and muscle or
the farm will ourstrip in every particu
a the boy who contents himself as at
earner of wages.
Get education, yes, get all you can
and while you are getting an educe
tion, do not fail to learn something o
the great agricultural problems. I wisi
every boy in Clarendon county coult
haveheard the talks of Dr. Knapp as h<
unfolded the wonderful possibilities tha
lie at our very doors.
One of my objects in writing this let
ter is to enthuse tne boys and get then
to enlist for next year in this grea
work. We want a cduple of hundre<
boys to get in touch with this depart
ment through our county organization
Dr. Knapp's lectures covered every de
partment that affects life on the farE
in any particular.
One very noticeable thing in connec
tion with the entire work, was the ab
sence oi advocating the use of commer
cial fertilizers in excessive quantities
The idea is to embrace natures way c
restoring fertility to worn out soil, ani
studying those principles and acting up
on them so as not to rob the soil of it
fertility, but to add to it annatly, get
ting large returns at the same time. I
can be done, has been done and is being
done. These are some of the things t,
learn Join us for next year.

Orphanage Work Day.
Attention is called to the concert of
action among the orphan institutions
of South Carolina with regard to:
speecial work day effort Saturday,
September 25, next. Thornwell Or
phanage, Connie Miaxwell Orphanage
and Epworth Orphanage have definite
l planned for the success of the day
and are c'irculating literature upon the
subject. We presume that every orphar
institution, of whatever size or undet
whatsoever auspices, will be glad tz
have its friends remerrber it on this
The p lan is simple enough. Let every
bvand girl, every man and woman,
yo'ung and old, devote the income of
the day to the orphanage of his choice
Some of the children may pick cotton,
others may gather up old iron and sel]
it. some will do odd' jobs, others wil]
devote their salary or wages of the day
to the care of the orphans.
Coming down to the plain truth, is
there any cause that warms the cockles
of the heart like the plea for the father
ess? Let the people join the work day
effort September 25, and roll up a bif
amount for the orphans, and forwarr
the same to such institution as ea.
