tion. He declared that he had neve*
committed himself on the race. Irby
told the voters that he had it on good

TALK OF- A DOLLAR BILL.
A farmor wont to town to spend
Some of his hard-earned dough,
And in a merry Jest, and just'
To show his printing BklH,
Ho printed his Initials on
A brand new dollar-till.
Ho speot thru doitar that same day,
Down In-thy v'llag^'stor*
Ho thought 'twas gon3"fr>re/er then
And he'd see it no imore.
Bui long before iiioi year rolled by
One day he went to All
A neighbor's order, and received
That same ono dollar bill.
Once more he spent that dollar bill
In his own neighborhood.
Where it would do himself and friends
The most amount of good.
Pour times in two years it came back,
As some bad pennies will,
And each time he'd go out and spend
This marked one dollar bill. '
Had he been wise that dollar might
Be In town today, ' ' \
But just two years ago
He- sent it iar away.
The people who received It then
I know have got it still, *
For 'twas to a mail order house
He sent his dollar bill.
No more will that marked dollar
Come Into the fermera' hands.
And nevermore will It help to yiy
The taxes on hla lands.
Ho put it where It' never can
Its work of life fulfill ;
He brought about the living death
Of that one dollar bill.

To Attend the Institute? and Hear

Clemson college will send out a
number of (rained men to talk to the
farmers through tho remained of the
?ummer. There will be three farmers'
Institutes held In thiB county, and
there will be good wholesome instruc
tion at each and every one.
On the Kith there will bo an Insti
tute at Three and Twenty School

Day for August and on the 27th at

of vetch; A. F. Conrad!, who will dls

will talk of horticulture. Prof. H. W.
Barre, the entomologist, may also be
with tho party.
W. W. Ixmg, tho state demonstra

gencer as follows with reference to
the meetings in this county:
We realizo that the many campaign
meetings which are being held in the
state are taking up much of tho farm
ers' time and we think It only right
that the farmers should attend all of
their campaign meetings. At the same
time, we would direct the attention
of your readers to the fact that the
farmers' institutes which arc soon to
he held in your county must also have
their attendance, no matter how many
other meetings they may have had to
go to before.
Clemson college linn gone to much
labor and oxpense to send out these
institute parties. Never In the history
of the college have such competent
and mature men been sent to the far
mers. Everything that they will say
has been carefully worked out and
designed with the view of giving the
moat practical help to the farmers
of South Carolina.
I believe that the farmers of the
state owe iL to themselves to attend
these institute mcotings. One of these
meetings has frequently been worth
hundreds of dollars to a farmer wh
attended them. The time is espe
cially opportune for the farmers and
tho agricultural experts of the state
to get together and talk with each
other, since.the boll weevil is fast ap
proaching and we must learn how to
