Many ftriends throughout South
Carolina regret to learn of the t
death of Mr. Chas. A. Calvo, Sr.,
who died in New York last Satur- s
and highly esteemed in this State.
haviug been the founder and C
publisher of the Columbia Regis- t
ter and State Printer for a num
ber of years. He was a native
of Charleston, where he was born c
about 63 years ago, but had lived t
the greater part of his life in '
Columbia. For several years past 2
he had been engaged in maga

Calvo is survived by his wife and

It is said that the lawyers do t
not approve the adoption of the
Torrens system of land registra
tion. The very object of the
system, as we understand it. is f
to obviate the necessity of search- t
ing titles every time that land is c
sold or a loan is sought on real I
estate security. Under the Tor
rens system land titles would be
as negotiable as bank stock. If a
the lawyers, or any lawyer, op- t
pos the system it must be on a t
very narrow,selfsh ground-that c
it would deprive them of fees fort
searching titles. The allegation e
is surely not correct, for lawyersi
as aclass are men of good sense.
The Egyptian and Turkish a
governments are making care-d
fully planned preparations toli
raise more and better cotton in Is
those countries. The time is ec
not far distant when the cotton p~
producers of the South will have t:
competion that will reduce ma- p
terially our world monopoly of
a world necessity. Better farm

the product for market will be b
inevitably demanded before s
another generation passes. The d

A great deai of attention has 2
been attracted in the pubhic prints a
by Representative Harvey WV. TI
Mitchum's bill to limit the in- :1
come of Clemnson College from 'u
the fertilizer tag tax to $1 75, 000. u
a year and todistribute the bal- u~
ance of that fund for the beettt
of the common schools. This is le
not a bad idea. but a better one a
wdunld be to limit Clemson to b
$150,000 and give thle balance of y
the growing tag tax to a special ti
fund to enable us to catch up with
the year's arrearage and put the
State's business on a cash basis.
It is not good business to liter
ally throw money at Clemson j&
College and borrow money every
year to pay the interest on the :r
State debt It is a pity we can't
get aset of State officers ar: ~hU
legislature capable of running
our State affairs as sanely as the
officials and directors run a sound j
banking or manufacturing con
cern, but political claptrap is the
bane of South Carolina and will
probably continue so for a great
while to come.
Mr. Isaac Ridgway, a citizen
of New Jersey who has r.ecentlyI
been spending some tim4e at
Florence, has become enthus.ed
with Jerry Moore and his, prze
acre of corn. He writes to the
Columbia State that Jerry has' aj
sold some of his corn but still
has about 10,0M0 pounds~ en"
hand, and he mak-es the sugz- .A
gestion that this corn be put up
in one pound packages and
offered to any boy in the U-nited -r
States that grrows the most corn
from one of these pounds on
four square rods of land. .Jerry !
Moore to have the pr-ofits oft th.:

suggestion and we hope Collier's .
Weekly will take it up and pushi
it to success. Mr. liid::v
offers to take four pounds for -
hii' four grandsons. a::d d'i:h i t
les~ there are thousanids mor.
who would gladly tolov: his Tr
example. It wouid be, apeit
blxnvestmnent to a rous,- thl.
ambition of ten thousand boys
to emulate Jerry Moore's exam-,

privilege to thus assist in mak
