CAN'T TOUCH THIS STATE
Commissioner Harris Tells Of Visit
Columbia, April 27.-While he con.
tends that he observed many things
and learned a good deal on his recent
trip' attending conventions, Commis
sioner B. Harris came home declaring
that old South Carolina is the best
State in the Union and he is prepared
to back it up.
"From an agricultural standpoint
and by fair comparison I consider
that South Carolina is a better farm
ing State than Texas from the sim
ple fact that our seasons are more
uniform and our lands are more pro
ductive per acre as proved by United
States census which is an impartial
judge in this case," said Mr. Harris.
"It requires in Northwest Texas ten
acres of their prairie land to support
one steer a year while in South Caro
line one acre of highly improved land
in the Piedmont will graze two cows,
and in sandy lands one acre will
graze one cow for seven months in
the year. In middle Texas it requires
four acres. Our Bermuda grass is
hard to beat."
Mr. Harris found on inquiry that
cattle are very scarce in Texas and
also that hogs are very scarce. Even
i brood sow costs more in Texas than
i Texas horse. It is almost an impos
sibility to buy a milk cow in Texas.
"I- was told by a man whose business
it is to buy cattle," said Mr. Harris,
"that ten years ago he could go out
and buy 1,000 head of cattle in two
or three days. 'Today he cannot buy
that many cattle in three weeks. Also
sheep are very scarce in Texas. This
is one of the best of industries in that
State. Wool and mutton are bringing
a very high price."
Mr. Harris declares that he knows
of no farming enterprise that would
bring higher returns in proportion to
the capital invested than a flock of
sheep. "The increase in the lamb and
wool would be the first cost in twelve
months," says Mr. Harris. "Many,
many farms in South Carolina are
suitable for sheep raising in a very
profitable manner. We will never
have a (log law in this State until
we get sheep. It is useless to talk
about getting the law and then get
ting the sheep. I noticed very few
logs in Texas. I looked carefully and
inquired of my son, who is one of
the faculty at the State Normal Col
lege. He said there were very few
:logs in Texas."
"One need not hunt a better place
than old South Carolina for profita
ble and diversified agriculture. In re
rard to the preparation of land in
Texas I observed that the soil is
not broken and the farmers just take
i two-horse plow and throw two fur
rows to the middle. That forms the
bed on which they plant the cotton.
The average farmer tn Texas does not
compare with the average in South
Carolina for progressiveness."
NEW PICTURE IS
"Johanna Enlists" Is Humorons and
Famous Star Has Splendid
For genuinely delicious humor and
timely interest, annopncement is
m ade that "Vary Pickford's newest
photoplay, "Johanna Enlists." a screen
adaptation of Rupert Hughes' suc
cessful story, "The Mobilization of
Johanna," which will he shown at the
Pastime Theatre tomorrow, is perhaps
the most pleasing offering of the sea
son and in many resepcts one of the
most novel and delightful vehicles
:ver provided for this famous cinema
One feature of unusual interest
which makes this photoplay most not
able is that the military scenes with
which it abounds presents the mem
bers of the 143rd Regiment, Field
Artillery, of which Mliss Pickford is
the honorary colonel. The troops were
encamnped at Universal Ranch, in Cali
rornia, where the scenes were '?shot,"
andl they will, of course, be absolute
ly realistic, even to a court-mar-tial
w:hich is carriedl out wvith every atten

Before the war Germany m-adle the3

pan beginning to awake to the pos- ffy e
sibilities of such trade for her cheap

war brought- about the birth of a toy

greatly stimulated ,Japanese manufac
ture. In her plans to recover her for -_________
mer monopoly in toys, Germany ree
ogni-zes prejudhice in the United

tion. She overlooks entirely the pos-C l
sibility of American toy manufacture
developing to any proportions.
WVhat is going to happen to the.
American industry in the face of Ger
man and Japanese competition ? Our
markets wvere flpodled in 1918 with.
huge stocks of cheap and inferior toys
.nade in Japan, that country having
practically replaced Germany's pre
