TI WORK OF THE WAREHOUSE SYSTEM
In the discussion of the . Beat
tie-Lanef graders bill, Senator
3. Arthur Banks, of Calhoun
County, took occasion to give to
the State Senate a review of the
State Warehouse System, and
- graphically pictured the won
derful results which had been
-accomplished not only in South
rlina but -throughout the en.
I re South, ,the. beneficent in.
Ruence of the system," he said,
"having radiated to every farm
a the South."
Senator Banks supported the
State Warehouse idea when it
Tasfrst advanced by Senator
McLaurin, he lent his efforts to
the passage of the bill, and he
has consistently and ably be
:riended the system since its es
talishment. It was he who ac
companied Senator McLaurin to
e money centres to make ar
gements for a^nning the
State receipts and estabhlihing
ther character, his own ware
'ousB had been placed in the
aystem at the beginning, and in
.his address to the senate he
r spoke not only with a clear con
? eption of the general scope of
the warehouse ideas, brt w.th
st e towards low -insurance
ortes and low interest charges.
T1 3most striking thl'ng about
State Warehouse System to
be said, was the revelation
Sthe possibilities of work for
e becommon good by an individ
who gave of his gifts of mind
heart John L. McLaurm;
aihad that rare combmna
~~nof the brilliant imagination
Swth the ability to put his
dreams into practical operation,
[nd with a singular devotion to
mt- oinl good.
Beshowed how one of the
jos serious obstacles to the
~organisation of the system was
teudireasonable rates of insur
'4mee isposed upon country cot
Ston by insurance companies in a
(hide-bound -combination, with a
St-ate of three and one half per
.eenZ prevailing, and with no pos
--sibiiity of breaking into the comn
Ghination by individual effort.
Btthe genius of the State
MWak'ehouse Commissioner finally
succeeded in securing a $1.58
sate,' with pro rata cancellation,
~which made it possible for us
.tocarry our-cotton through the
Stite Warehouse System, in our
~-own warehouses, on our own
,arms, at one-third of the cost
of carrying the cotton under the
j1iod system of public warehouses
a.4 other words, one dollar a
talse a year, instead of three dol
lar a atea year."
Aerthe insurance feature
was worked out,he contlanedLthe
~polmto be solved was to get
snoney at reasonable rates to
#ihfance the cotton. "Money was
very scarce in the South at that
e, and even those of us who
-<eebest situated were unable
to tarn our cotton into a liquid
.sset by reason of the fact that
~we could not secure the money
~eddeven if we paid as high
C-.eight per cent for it. Tbe
Y5tate Warehouse Commissioner,
91shohad made a careful study of
,e Federal Reserve Law, con
~evdthe idea or that law
~iihseemed to guarantee
s every citizen of the United States
4sufficient amount of money,
upon reasonable rates, to con
a legitimate business, and
bhe madie an appeal to the Fed
-ral Government for relief upon
F aplan. He and I together,
tion, and decided to write a let
4; er to'Mr. W. P. G. Harding, of
the Federal Reserve Board, ask
ing bis assistance."
Senator Banks paid a tribute
to Mr. Harding as an official who
h ad proved his devotion to the
interests of Southern agricul
tore, "We went on to Wash
ington and went over the situa
flion with him, and he gave us a
- ter of introduction to the big
- financial institutions in New
k, which letter I want to
te in full." Here Senator
Banks read the letter of Mr.
Barding in which the State
1rhonse System was charac
terized as a model system. "In i
addition to this,' he said, "Sen- i
ator McLaurin wrote a letter to l
the President of the United
States and enlisted his interest <
in the cause. And then took the <
matter up with the Secretary of
the Treasury, Mr. McAdoo, who
wrote a letter to Senator Mc- 1
Laurin pledging his assistance
and endorsing the State Ware
house System." This corres
pondence with the President and
the Secretary of the Treasury
was read by Senator Banks.
"The net result of these efforts"
he said, "was the placing of
thirty millions of .dollars in
Southern banks to tinance the
cotton of the South. accompan
ied with an order that this mon- 1
ey should be loaned at a rate of
interest not inn excess of six per
cent, thus enabling the South
ern cotton farmer to carry his
cotton at charges less than half
of what he would have had to
pay had it not been for the State
"This reveals the wonderful I
possibilities of what may be
done for the masses of the peo
pie by a-d.epartmentof the State
handled by a man devoted to
the common interests in the
catuseof agriculture. Had it not
been for the State Warehouse
System, as evolved by McLaurin
the dreamer, and put into op
eration by canny Scotch prac
tical gifts, so beautifully inter
laced and working through the
sound theories of the. idealist,
who would have taken up this
work and accomplished this re
sult? And even if some one had
been found with the brains and
the devotion to do it, could any
thing have ben don: unless the
one who attempted it was cloth
ed with th :bich the
S .3 in that
. . pression, but the
beneficent innuence of the work
done by this State in organizing
this department radiated to
every cotton farm in the entire:4
"This is the work," he con
cluded, "that has been done by 1
the State Warehouse System,
whether it be a departure in De- I
mocracy, as it is termed by its
originator, or a departure out
side of Democracy, as it is term
d by its enemies."
A synopsis of Senator Ban ks' i
address cannot do it justice. The
Senator from Calhoun'- is one of1
the clearest thinkers in public]
life in South Carolina today, and
his address was a magnificent
presentation, supported by the I
facts with which he is thorough
ly familiar, of a department ofI
the State Government which for
several months past has been at- I
tracting the atte'ntion of the busi i
ness men of the nation and of its
great thinkers in political econ

THIN THIS OVER.
People are doing quite a little :
talking and reasoning on politi
cal topics these days, and they
will continue to buzz around un
til after the year's elections have
become history. Then they will;
promptly forget all about it and
the people they have placed in
office will proceed to do as they1
please throughout their terms,
and there are times that what h
pleases the office holder is any- 1
thing but pleasing to the men
who put him ther~e.
Right there, Mr. Voter, is
where we make a very great<
mistake. We should keep right 1
after the office holder with asi
much persistency after elections 1
as he employed in pestering us
for our votes before the election.1
We should talk things over 1
among ourselves, and decide 14
what we need, and what .is best
for our collective welfare, and
then we should hang unto theli
office holder like a hungry dog i
grips a bone until he gets what]
we want or it is shown not to be 1
within the bounds of possibility.

EFFCIci o VOn T ?
Every time an election draws
near a horde of candidates spring
ip for the various offices within
he gift of the people, s
Some of these are mentally
end morally competent, while o
>thers are totally unfit. e
Under our accepted theory of %
self government we are presum- et
:d to select men with especial d
-egard to their qualifications. P!
heir integrity. and their all

That. though. is only theory.

hing of the kind.
In theory the people are sup- .y
osed to make their own selec- z

But they don't. I
In practice the bosses, politely

are "advised"). a
The man who is good to the ii
0sses (shucks, we mean "le-.d
rs") can keep right on holding a
ublic office as long as he con
ines to be good to his masters,b
mless in the meantime the peo- a
:e become so disgusted they
iterally kick him out.
And why is it so?
Very simple, Mr. Voter, very ,

PREPARE GEESE FOR MARKET H
Many Farm Flocks Would Pay Hand- be
somely if Proper Attention Paid reE
to Fattening of Fowls.
There are many reasons why geese of
and ducks are not more popular table n
fowls than they are, but the chief rea
son is that they are so poorly fitted Ea
flor the market.be
Many a farm Sock of . ducks and S.
geese would pay a more handsome
prpat it some attention was paid to i
the fattening of it. av
First, a young duck or goose must in
be had for fattening. Stock that is eh
too old is not sweet and tender as it Ki
should be. One cannot build up a
reputation by selling it. - lac
Old stock, if less than three or four C
seasons of age, is better for breeding ba
purposes than for market. by
'Youngsters hatched from the eggs of by
yearling and two-year-old ducks, and rui
geese are the most'vigorous. W
A crate with a slatted bottom and

each crate and let the birds feed w

Arrange to give plenty of water or be
skim milk at all times. Dairy wastes re.
can be well utilised In ming up mash of
foods for fattening the fowls.
Do not crowd too many fowls in a of
rate. Let-there be room enough for by
each bird to stand at the trough with- iot
out trampling each other. far
The birds should be provided with "ar
plenty of sharp gravel or other grit.
Start them on full feed -.t once and
keep them on it for 18 days at least. Jf
A duck or goose will lay on a large Es
amount of fat in this timo if properly
fed. It is about as long as :. water uy
fowl can be fed wFith profit. B
Feed a mash food of corn chop and Le
oats three timer tally. Let the base
of this mash br -ut lover, cut-alfalfa
or bran. It must have - bulk base
of some kind in order -o do the fowl_
the most good. Corn -r cornmeal alone
Is not a good atter.S
The Idea of feeding mash food is
that It puts morr 'esh on the fowls
because It is more easily assimilated
by the fowls' systems.
Ducks and geese well fitted are al- ch
ways in big demand in the cities. Culls
and poor and old stock will never Alt
bring over omarket prices.
EXERCISE FOR LAYING HENS
When Feeding Grain Scatter It Far 1
and Wide and Make Fowls Htate
to Gather ft Up.
In the first place do not overfeed.
Bear In mind that If a hen Is to be
kept in laying condition, she must g
have exercise. When you feed graini, dir
do not put It In a trough where the 3r<
hens can stand and eat their fill, but to
scatter It far and wide, as the hens C'
wlllfnd every grain. If the snow is -~
on the ground after the cold season 1
sets In. throw the grain In leaves or s
ct straw, so as to keep them busy.
Do not feed grain exclusively, but give de
a variety. Allow ground meat or pa
meat and bone fresh from the butch- d.
r, three times -a week. Vary the re
gain, feeding corn, wheat and oats, e~I
and give cabbage, cooked turnips,
clover leaves or any other food that al
the hens will eat.
