Editor The iMannin: Ti'mes.:
Please allow me space in your valued
paper to make a correction. Sometime
ago in a news letter from Summnerton,
I noted the sale of a piece of land by
the Rev. Mr. Sublett to M\r. Thomas
Gentry. In commenting on the sale. I
said that the price paid by that gentle
man was regarded as a phenominal in
crse in the value of the land over the
estimate placed on it by certain wit
nesses in the Sublett-Tindal case. Some
of them valued the land recently sold
at about $50 per acre to .\r. Gentry. at
prices ranging from $i to $15.
Your correspondent has been remind
ed by one of those witnesses that he
omitted to say that their testimony re
lated to the value of the land per nere
in the year 1905, and not at the time of
the trial, which took-place in 1909.
As I desire to do no man an injustice,
I take this means of correcting my re

Experiment and Demonstration Work.
Preparations are nocw being made for
he conduct of experimental farm work
it this place. under the direction of the
0nited States depatment of agricul
ure. Sixteen acres of desirable ground,
bout. a mile from the court house have
een secured, ten acres on the public
rad leading to Summerton, and six
ires on the road to Paxville. All of
he above'mentioned land is in what
night be termed a comparatively poor
state of cultivation, but the typo of soil
night be classed as typical of Claren
on county-that is to say, a sandy loam
s a top soil with a red clay subsoIl.
Owing to the recent increase in thel
narket value of farm lands in this sec-1
tion. it was rather a diflicult proposition
o lease a piece of ground for any length
f time, but through the untiring ef
forts of M r. Ch::rlton DuPant and other
nembers of the Manning Board c
'rade, the 16; acres was finally leased
for a period of eight years. and it is now
nderstood .that the department of agri
nlture will take hold and in co-opera
tion with the Manning Board of Trade
horoughly and systematically carry
ut the proposed experimental work.
imited experimental work in tobacco
lone was very satisfactorily conducted
~ere last year by the department of
riculture. under the immediate direc
tion of Mr. W. M. Lunn, who is a grad
sate of Clemson College, and who since
is graduation has been engaged in
special work in connection with the
.nited States depa-rment of agricul
ure. Mr. Lunn has been here for some
time, engaged in makong preliminary
Lrrangenents, and when seen today he1

Not as vet has the definite plan of
the work been outlined, but it is the
urpose of the department of agricul
ure to conduct on a small scale a series
f experiments with tobacco in rotation
with cotton, corn, wheat or oats, anc
owpeas. This work will no doubt be
f practical interest to the farmers.
especially those who are intttarested in
.he growing of tobacco. The object of
this work is not only to show the best
'ormulas and fertilizers for tobacco, but
.t the same time to determine as far as
osible which one of the above men
tioned staple crops tobacco does best
.ter, or foliows best. We expect t~o
test a number of fertilizers in v-arious
uantities. In other words, we wish to
jetermine as best we can the best fer
iizers as well as the bist formula for
tobacco grown in this section. A num-1
er of forms and amounts of nitrogen,
r ammonia, phosphoric acid, and po t
ish will be used, but just the kinds and
mount of fertilizers that will be usedl
remains yet to be determined. In addji
ion to the regular fertilizer tests with
obacco, we hope to test a number of
varieties of tobacco grown in this State.I
in order to determine as far as possible
the best type of tobacco for this section.
It. is hop~ed and expected that, when
this experimental work is fairly under
a, a great many farmers from other
sections will be attracted to Manning to
see for themselves the progress and de
eopments of the experiments, and thus
h work here will prove of immense
value to the State.

Dogs and Fleas.
If your dogs are troubled with fleas
very simple way to get rid of the
ests Is to provide beds of fresh ce
bar shavIngs or, better, cedar excel
fr In the kennels or wherever the
ogs sleep. The scent is not at all
ipleasant to the dogs, but is abhor

ets thoroughly scented not only do
he fleas leave him while asleep, but
hey will not jump upon him when he
