As this is the time of year when
when as a rule there is more play
than work, your Uncle Nub wishes to
give the first gun in advocacy of "a
general clean up day." A clean soul
begets a clean body, clean bodies
crave clean surroundings, clean sur
roundings beget pride of a civic na
ture and a love of the beautiful.
Judging altcgether by what greets
the eye and the alfactory nerves as
we walk about the premises of many
of our homes, man is the most untidy
and careless creation of all animal
nature. Sanitary experts tell us that
the greatest breeding places for dis
eases are those conditions which of
fend both the eye and the nose. Now
let us consider the practiced side of
this proposition. From time to time
a great many towns have conducted
a "paint up, clean up campaign." It
always worked well, was good for
the health and good for the health of
the towns and counties concerned, and
the appearance of the general sur
roundings improved wonderfully.
These campaigns should be kept up
year after year. Of course, a man
need not paint his entire building
every year. lie can, if needs be,
touch up here and there, but perhaps
there is no painting needed. The
clean-up part, however, is always in
order. The idea is to clean up back
yards, streets everywhere, to get rid
of refuse, to disinfect, and to make
things sanitary and attractive to the
eyes and nose. Now right here let
1 me say, my hat is always off to the
ladies, but I will take off at many
times to the ladies , '-e this
" matter up and care. -ess
ful conclusirn. Let ' b be
come infected with the ioug of clean
liness. The experiment is worth try
ing especially with the several. cases
, of typhoid fever we had here last
D summer so fresh in our minds. If by
. complying with the above suggestion
will be the means of preventing only
one case of fever we will not think
an appeal to the good people here
to clean up, beautify, and briifg about
an absolutely sanitary condition in
vain. . .

There seems to be a building move
ment in the atmosphere here and if
carpenters could be had in the next
few months quite a number of resi
dents would go up. Among those who
are wanting to build this spring and
summer are: W. W. Davis, cashier
of the Bank of Santee; -1. E. Davis,
of the firm of Davis & Barnes; George
Joseph, and several others are plan
ning to b ilo, residences this summer
aned several of our folks are doing
considerable repairing and remodel
ing on their residences, andl it is saidl
that a tobacco wvarehouse at a cost
of something like eight thousand dol
lars will be built time enough for this
year's crop, and judiging from the
amount of tobacco being plantedl in
this section if a warehouse is built,
qluite a lot of the weed will ne sold
Wec are in hearty sympathy with the
movement to redluce cotton aeca ge
and the amount of fertilizer usedl, and
as we have previously stated we hope
this method will be the means of solv
ing the cot ton problem in the way of
adlvancing the price. But as the pledge
is written out can a man conscien
titisly sign it ? While we have no
partic~ular- criticism of this pledlge as
it is written, yet our opinion is that
it shiouild specify the amount of acre
age each man should plant to the
horse, and not the reductioni in per
cientage of acres from last year. A
may have pllanted 20 acres last year,
and 11 10 acres, soi A can affor i to
icut 33 1-3 per cent this year and then
have a big cotton crop, while it wpumld
cutt B down almost to zero. And when
it. comes to a man heing honor bound
bya pledge to hold his cotton uintil
he gets 35 cents the pound can lie
do this whe'n there is no certainty of
it ? It may be tnat a veari or more
will pass before this price is reached,
and we fear a goodl number of out
farmers would be somewhat e mba r
rassed in a financial way before that
time. While we are almost sure if
the- proper reduci(tion in the production
of, cotton takes place this year, the
price will certainly 'o tup. Tfhis has
been very plainly -;hown in pirevious
years when at small crop is made as
a rule cotton is hiagh, when a large
cropi is madie there is It considlerable
slump in the price, and it is almost a
fact too that as a rutle the cotton
farmer is broke if he makes, and if
he dlon't make it. While we all rea
lize he has had a few good years,
andl many of them have prospered,
btut to go back 20 or 25 years, the
cotton farmer caught thunder. But
at that time cotton was not all that
was cheap, labor, ratIons, dry gnods
horses an, mlules and almost anything
that a farmer had to buy was cheap,
and the sho<' did not pinch so hard,
but now with sil these things sky
high, and cheap cotton the shoe is'
pinching, and pinching hard, and there
Is no wonder that the farmers are
squealing. We do not blame them.
and hope they will keep on squealin'
until relief comes, let it be of what.
