Secretary of the Treasury Mc?doo Announces
Completion of Plan to Furnish Aid to

Million Dollars to the Fund.
Federal Reserve Board Believes the Carrying Out
Of This plan Will Be Beneficial. Not Only in
Helping the Cotton and Foreign Exchange
Situations, But by Promoting the General
Prosperity of the Country.
1ERE WILL FARMERS
OBTAIN SEED WHEAT?
NOT ENOUGH IN THE COUN
TY FOR DEMAND
But Few Planters Have More
Wheat Than Needed for Con
sumption and Planting.
"Whero will Anderson county far
mers get seed wheat enough to sow"
was the question asked last night by
ono well known business man while
a discussion was going on as to the
amount of wheat to be nlanted this
season by lucal planters. The speaker
wont on to say that practically the
entire available supply of seed wheat
In Anderson county has already been
exhausted and Anderson plantera
have not yet begun to sow wheat.
All told, not more than 10 or 12 An
derson county planters have over sow
ed wheat on an extensive scale and
each year they have been planting the
same wheat Of the few in the county
now sowing wheat tn any considerable
extent they have been using ? tho
same seod useQ by their grandfathers
for the last E0 vir 60 years and these
men had but little seed wheat to offer
Throughout tho country the same
cry is being heard. "Seed wheat Is
scarce and we cannot supply the de
mand." Anderson county's supply ot
seed wheat seems to have been sold
out and when the planters prepare
to sow about 20 times as much wheat
in this county as was ever produced
here before, they will be up against
the proposition of finding seed enough
to plant '0i
To show that the situation is se
rious, Furman Smith, the Wholesale
seedsman, when seen yesterday and
asked by a reporter for The Intelli
gencer as to tho truth about wheat
being scarce, exhibited letters where
ho returned checks amounting to more
than 3400 during the last week : to
planters in the lower part of the State.
