We have recently read a most
interesting letter on the subject
of government, and treating with
our tax problem, from the pen of
Mr. A. J. Mattheson, of Ben
nettsville. and what this gentle
man says, should have the effect
of arousing the masses to do
some thinking along the lines
suggested by him. Mr. Matthe
son is no politician, and we sin
ceily doubt if he could be in
duced to accept any office within
the gift of the people. but at
the same time, he is a thorough
going and successful business
man, and he is capable of giving
the masses good advice. He sug
gests that a taxpayers' conven
tion be held for the purpose of
devising some way to rid the
State of its unbusinesslike meth
ods of conducting its affairs. and
what he so well says is known to
all who keep in touch with affairs
of the government. Would that
South Carolina could have in her
State and county governments
such men as the gentlemen from
Bennettsville: the great trouble
is, such men are so busy with
their private interests, they
could not be induced to take up
the reins of government, yet
they see its defects and, should
give their services.

Just before the last number
Mr. W. R. Davis, in behalf of
the trustees, thanked the pat
rons for their generous support
and cooperation in helping to
make the school what it is, and
informed them of the election of
the same faculty for another sea
son, and in the same happy
strain thanked and complimented
the teachers for the very impor
tant part they. too, had in thie
success of the school, and as
sured them of the lasting im
pression they had created upon
the minds and hearts of the peo

General Green is putting in appearanc

f the bankers and merchants are ge
aing uneasy, but I think they need n<
be alarmed as the old farmer is the bacl
bone of the world and has held togethe
so long and prospered I don't think ther
is any reason to fear now. It has bee

The Cre of The Drinking Water Supply.
S Clemson Extension Work.-Article IX.
r 1 Health isof first importance in all oc
c cupations, since it governs the ability of
the individual to do work. The progres
stveness of a community is governed by
e its healthfulness, and this healthfulness
is measuted largely. directly or indi
e rectly, by the purity of its drinking wa
ter. Almost our entire rural population
and the inhabitants of a majority of our
small towns get their supply of d rinking
water from springs or from shallow
e wells. It is to call attention to the often
1 improper surroundings of these sources
e of drinking water that this article is
The principal disease suvposed to be
communicable through the drinking
t-water are typhoid fever, cholora, dysen
terv and other diarrhoea; affections,
cholera infantum, animal parasitic dis
eases, enteric fevers and scarlet fever.
Of the diseases mentioned typhoid fever,
cholera, dysentery, cholera infantum
Sand scarlet fever may also be carried by
Imilk: enteric fever and typhoid by flies:
and thphoid by raw oysters and raw
~fruit. In order that the water supply!
dor any of the other agencies mentioned
may caarv these diseases it. is first nec-;
d essary fo- them to become infected with
Sthe specific infection which commnuni
cates the disease. The infection of all
of the sources mentioned except mos
- oumites. isderived from the ejecta of a
e patient suffering from the disease.
-It is a fact proven by statistics that
the water borne diseases begin to in-'
e crease in July and are at their maxi
e mum during August and September.
* decreasing in October.
I The ideal cond itions for the spring are
- that its watershed is uninhabited, that
t the watershed does not contain stables.
ybarnyards, pig pens. privies. cesspools

k ersed by railroads nor highways for axll

d spring should be ditched around iu such
e Ia way as to carry o:Y all of the surface
n water, both during a downpour of rain

it THE WELL.
a' Too many of our wells are located in
the barnyard, in order that water may
tbe convenient for the stock, regardless
tof sanitary conditions. The source of the
drinking 'water for the family should be
located on a well drained area, remote
f--om barns, pig pens, privies, cesspools,
cemeteries or drains, and should be ce
mented from the edge outward to the
Sdistance of several feet. Above the sur-1
face of this cement, a tight box should
*be built and a tight fitting cover pro
vided if buckets are used. The pump is
much to be preferred to the bucket be
cause it lessens the danger of trash fall
h ing into the well. All waste water
should be drained oil and no -vater al
e lowed to spill back into the w d. No
e puadles should be allowed to form near
hv b in which hogs might wallow. The
hog is a great gatherer of filth, and by
wallowing in a puddle which drains into
a well, there is great danger of infec-'
dDeep wells, properly protected to pre
vent an inflow of surface water at the!
top, are to be preferred to either shal
low wells or springs, especially in the
nsouthern part of this State.
