FARM I[NANCY IiN
Sixty-threo per cent. of all of the
farms in South Carolina are oper
ated by tenants. In 1910 there were
176,434 farms in this State, and of
bhese only 65,213 were operated by
owners and managers.
Only two states in the nation have
a greater percentage of tenancy than
this stakte. These are Mississippi with
56.1% of all her farms operlted by
tenants, and Georgia with 65.6%.
The general average of tenancy in
the East North Central States, includ
ing Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan,
and Wisconsin was 27%. The highest
groups are the West South Central
States with 52.8% thancy, the East
South Central with 50.7%, and the
South Atlantic with 45.9%. These
three consist largely of the cotton
While the term "tenant," according
to the Thirteenth Census interpreta
tion, includes both share-croppers and
renters, the situation is not materially
modified by this qualiacation. The
essential point is that the greater
Percentage of the farms in South Car
olina are operated by others than
the owners themselves.
Moreover, the tendency in this di- I
rection seems to be on the increase. In I
1880 the percentage of tenancy in
South Carolina was 50.3; in 1890, it I
was 55.3; and in 1900 the figure was
31.1. There has been accompanying
this a progressive decrease in the
size of farms from 541 acres in 1850
to 76.6 acres in 1910. The number
>f tenant farmers in 1880 was 47,219;
while in 1910, it was 111,221.
Twenty-four counties in South Car
lina average more than 63% ten
incy. Marlboro leads with 80.4%,
Abbeville and Union followi.ig
with 77.9% and 76.2% respectively.

:ounties in the state with the excep
tion of those formed since 1910.

Also, it is generally conceded that
>wnership is a better type of farm
ing than tenancy. Denmark, Ireland,
E'ngland, and more recently the new
republic of Czecho-Slovakia have in
nugurated national policies to encour
nige ownership. An increasing tend
ency towanrds tenant farming is to
be regretted. Everything possible
should be (lone to stimulate the own
era living on their own farms and
taking an active interest in the vital
matters of maintaining soil fertility,
andl building up community life.
DO( NOTl WASTF, COOKING FUEL
When a slow fire is needed all (lay
to heat a kitchen, select foods that
require long, slow cooking. Beans,
peas, and roasts can be baked in the
oven and cereals can he cooked in a
dlouble boiler on the top of the stove.
In broiling over a coal or wood fire
put the broiler through the (door over
the fire box instead of taking off the
lids and cooling the fire.
Use (double broilers, steamers, and
:'ompartment vessels which fit over
one burner on a gas or oil stove.
Eggs or small vegetables may be
::ooked in the bottom part of the boiler
while cereals are cooked in the upper
part, accordling to U. S. Department

A colander or wire basket fitted
>ver a saucep~an makes a goodl st~eam
ar. Vegetables such as carorts may
be steamedl in the colander while po
tatoes are boiled in the saucep~an.
For slow cooking on a gas stove use
a simmering burner. When soups and
roodls require long cooking, but keel)
well, cook them in large quantities.
Coveredl containers heat more quick
ly than uncoveredl.
