f0? BACKACHE KIDNEYS AND BLADDER
Several days ago lt was announced
by members of the city council that
they had decided to visit no place
for tho purnoBO of Inspecting a motor
car pumping apparatus for use tty
tho AndorBon Ure department. How
over, tuemhors of council appear to I
have changed their minda on this
matter, sinco yesterday a majority
of the council, together with tho may
or nnd representatives ct houses in
terested in the manufacturo of fire
fighting apparatus, went to Spartan
burg for the purpr.se of inspecting j
the type of pump being used by the
Tho salesman representing tho
Seagrave Company had everything In
readiness for council to visit Colum
bus. Ohio, and Inspect his company's
plant there, but tho trip was called
off at the lust minute and when
Tuesday arrived connell decided that
such a trip waa not necessary.
Whether or not a truck of any
make will ho purchased just at this
time is still in doubt but members
of council are determined that they
will select no machine for usc hero
until they have seen a number of dif
ferent, makes tested. They desire
this done in order that they may de
termine which will be best suited to
the needs ot the city.
If a pumping truck IR purchased;
tho cost will probably bo between
$8.000 and $10,000.

GRAND JURY STATES FACTS
MATTER GOES UP
Anderson County Authorities Will
Ask Federal Government to
Investigate Savannah River.
People all over AndcrHon county
lin ve been walting for several weeks
gone by to hear the report of tho
special committee appointed to ex
amine Into whether or not certain In
terests have caused damage to the peo
ple attending to traille a?rons thc Sa
vannah river, by reason of having
erected a dam at a distance some
miles up tho river and therefore inter
fered with passage between Anderson
County, South Carolina, and certain
Georgia counties. This special com
mittee furnished a presentment to thc
court of general sessions yesterday
and their document makes very in
t crofting reading. The report Bays in
"We have investigated theBo com
plaints and find that they are well
founded. Navigation has been serious
ly interfered with and we find that
many citizens of Georgia and South
Carolina have been interfered with
and caused delay in crossing tho Sa
"In view of tho serious nature and
importance of this matter to the citi
zens of thin State and of Georgia, as
well as to thc parties immediately in
terested In Brown's Ferry and the
Portman Shoals dam and in view also
of the fact that thia question involves
tho question of power and Jurisdic
tion, not only of this State nnd tho
State of Georgia, but also ol the Unit
ed States, wc deemed lt proper to sub
mit the matter to the solicitor of the
circuit, with the request to make an
Invesigatlon and tv submit to us a re
port and we also employed special
counsel to ut--1st in tho matter,
"For the present we have decided
that lt will bo sufficient to call tho
matter to tho attention of thc proper
Federal authorities and to the attor
ney general of this State. We there
fore recommend that your honor in-1
struct the clerk of court to send a
copy of this special presentment, to
gether with the report and opinions
attached thereto, to each of tho fol
lowing ofHcer9, to wit: secretary of
war at Washington, each ot tho United
States senators from Sooth Carolina,
to the member of congress from tho
Third congressional district, to. the
attorney genera] of the United States,
to the United States attorney for the
district of South Carolina, to the at
torney general of South Carolina."
In tho report of counsel, prepared
by Kurtz P. Smith, solicitor and Ern
? cst F. Cochran, tho attorneys make
tho statement that in their opinion
this matter cnn not bc handled ac
cording to law by tho courts of South
Carolina and that lt is a matter for
the United States courts to d?cid?. In
conclusion tho etntoment ?ave
"Wo suggest therefore that tho mat
ter should bo brought to the attention
of the proper Federal authorities and
if relief ls given there will he no ne
cessity for any action by your body
or in the State courts. If, houtpYor,
the Federal authorities should Ail to
give any relief, then tlii? graDd Jury
might determine whethor nr not ir
would he advisable to present an in
dictment in the court of genero! ses
sions and test the jurisdiction^ of the
State courts in such proceeding*, or
the matter might then bo brought to
tho attention of the attorney general
nf South Carolina in order that the
State of South f/irolina might Insti
tute a suit for an Injunction in the
State court and the power of the State
court over such navigable streams
may be determined in thia manner."

ANDERSON WILL PRODUCE

. " : !
TO HEED AI^jlCE
Department of Agriculture Has
Told Planters That Meat Will
Soon be Scarce in Country.
That more hogs will bo raised in]
Anderson County next yeal1 than ever >
before in the history ot. the'county ,
ia the .statement- made by country
people coming to Anderson every
day. The fermera have, cime - to. real
ize'that meat ls growing scarcer year
by year, that teas meat iii now being,
produced than was ever before, and
a majority of the far-sighted farmers
in the county are going to lake steps
to see to it that they will not be per
sonally af (oc?od nest year. In this
connection, the following will be road
"With regard to meat animals, our
estimates indicate an accumulated
shortage since the census -year* ot op?,
proximately 19.2 per eehOT o&SifUw?"
000 head of cattle; 11.6' per cent, or
6.509,000 hoad of sheep; and 5.2 per
cent, or 3,214.000 head of swine. The
indicated total, eher tage ot rneat an
imait? since tho cenias ot 1910 1?
therefore approximately 18,259,000
head, or nearly nine beef cattle, seven
sheep and over three hogs for each
ono hundred of, the total Estimated
population of January, 1914."
It must be understood that In ar
riving at this conclusion the. depart
ment takes, into consideration the In
crease in population In four years.
Theretoro the figure sdo not repre
sent the actual, bat ? tu? relative,
shortage of meat animals. A tre
mendous r?duction- tn actual num
bers is accompanied by ah 'Increase
????395,487,009 in the farm value of
the TB\f material of one. of our most
Important food supplies.
In such circumstances it seems os
if any section of the country where
grass will grow should highly pris?
it. The South/especially should ap
preciate the grass which it so labor
iously tries to eradicate. This part
of the country Is well calculated for
the breeding of j livestock-a' mild cli
mate, opportunity for pasturage, wat
er, and a long growing season, for
coiu. ' Mor? than/.??ut. every' year it
puts millions of dollars in commer
cial fertilizers,: which uever can BUp

^-?Itf la ' coinmon .^experience that betT
ter acre yields come from the farms
that carry* 1 ive ??bek. This is a fact
that can not he refuted. , The farm
ers of the South would find their
yields of cot to nincreased if they de
Voted some of their acres tb livestock,
and marketed their cotton : seed in
this way. The shortage shown by tho
department's o s tim ate of meat ani
mals should : assure them of thc cer
tainty of a-market for all they , can
. - And Just", as' important, if not moro
BO. ls to plant -good seed corn..
Corn planting lg now under way
in Louisiana and .Texas. From now
on lt will follow tho season north
ward until nppioxlmately 110,000,000
acres of corn havo been planted. ...The
department of agriculture ls alive to
the importance of good seed, and ls
now issuing valuable instructions in
regard to. preparing seed corn for
the department has Been ex poripient?
lng. Some two years ago, as a re
sult: Secretarv Wilson, reuorted that,
by seed selection .alone, the. fanner
contd ih?rease? lils yield of corn from
95 to 50 per cont.
Seed selection ia Inexpensive, lt
only takes a little time and trouble.
Cultivating one hundred acre? ot
corn. If by this simple v method bl
planting good H seed ho can Increase
bis yield 25 per cent. , the farmer is
now practically throwing awMy'?JW
ocrea. Mow can he afford to do that'
Vhs average yield ot corn returns
a? too little profit as it is. With
Bach a gain in view, no ma? can hob*
estly plant seed shovelod from tnt

The method, to simplicity Itself. Bul
tho consequences ot a 50 per cent,
or even^25 per cont increase.in the
cora crfe, with resultant increase in
the fanners' purchasing power, and
decrease In Important food prices,
with no net loos to tho farmer, can
not he over-estimated. .
