At Wellsten, 0., Henry Ratliff,
living on the pike between Well

More Fertilizer Being Used.
We notice from the reports that
the privilege tax for this year up to
the first of April had amounted to
$90,069.80 and the probability is it
will exceed $100,000. Last year it
was only $6.5,140.55. This amount
all goes to Clemson College for the
purpose, ostensibly, of paying for in
spection. This st-.iement indicates
that a great deal more fertilizer .is
being used this fear and that more
cotton is going to be planto-1. We
hope the seasons will be propitious
and that the farmers will realize
handsomely from the large quantity
of fertilizers that they are using.
