South Carolina's jag proIotor will

A; 'her tte of South Carolina may
feel p of the monopoly it has
on the wiskey business, and now
if it.would monopolize the ferti;izer
interests, it might make it a big
paying concern, for one is rotten
enough to furnish material for the
other, and taken together it would
be a sweet scented affair.
The way the press df the State is
pitching into the thing there must
be something "dead tip the branch"
