THE NOBILITY OK THE TEACHER]
The time of the year has come for
almost mil the schools of the State to ?
open. Muny of them huvo been In
session for several weeks, and many
others are opening their UoorB almost
every Monday morning. This is true
of the country schools, and Monday
morning, bright and early, there will
be un army of little feet marching to
their respective schools to dip into
tho fountain of knowledge. How eager
ly these little tots seek the knowledge
of tho books, und how earnestly they
strive to "please teacher" and to "be
a good hoy," or to "be a good girl;"
And how important that the guiding
mind in these achools be well inform
ed ?nd full of love of their work and
the love of chltdboood. For many of
thc little fellows, tills will be the be
ginning of tx new lite, and new possi
bilities. Like ihe traveler in Borne
country whose Journey unfolds new
and mere wonderful scenes, each sur
passing tho oilier In gradeur and lov
llness, is this journey in the land of
letters for the little boy or girl at
tending school for the first time. What
is seen along the journey depends
largely upon the wisdom and know
ledge of tho guide. No more noble
task has ever been assigned a man or
woman than leading innocent child
hood to know and understand the hid
den mysteries of thc alphabet and
whut it leads to in life.
Preparation for this great work ?B
moBt essential. True teachers are born
not made, but the art of teaching can
bc taught. It is therefore, roost im
portant that the teacher be prepared
to teach. How often does one find that
the teacher knows little of the true
science of tesching, and flounders
about In the schoolroom, and makes a
failure. Indeed worse than failure, for
it is failure not only of herself as a
teacher, but of the possibilities in
many cases of the minds entrusted to
THE BELTON FAIR.
The Intelligencer hopes to see in a
near future a big Piedmont Fair at
Anderson, embracing in its scope all of
this and each of the adjoining coun
ties. We would like to see lt an agri
cultural and live stock fair, and at
tended by every person within a radius
of Hf ty miles. The good such a fair
would do thlB section of the State can
not be estimated. So, let UB get busy
JU this proposition and organize a
fair of this scope in time for next fall.
But, in the meantime, let us all go
to Belton next Wednesday and enjoy
the day at Belton's fair. This ls one of
the most commendable movements we
have heard of in the Piedmont section
of South Carolina. Here ls a commun
ity so full of publio spirit and civic
pride that a fair is staged and a large
list ot premiums given, absolutely
free. There ls no charge for admis
sion, and the hospitality ot the peo
ple of this progressive little city, with
its hundred trains dally, has become
known far ead wide. This is the ?pir
it that builds for the future, and gives
that large vision which makeB for a I
broad minded citizenship. This hard j
year when large counties have called I
off their county fairs on account of the
financial stringency, even thoURh
supported by paid admissions and en
I try fees, for Belton to have made the
?large pron?ration; she has made, and
to furnish the premiums and stand all
the expenses, is a show of remarkable
generosity. The promoters have spared
no pains to advertise the fair. Several
tours of Anderson and adjoin' u g coun
ties have been made and literature
distributed. All honor to the public

Penalizing the Southern Farmer
for Contributing to the Prosperity
of the Country-- An Interesting
Sample of Economic Wisdom.
. One of the favorite boasts of this great country has been its con
trol of the cotton-growing industry of the world. The great finan
ciers of the country, perhaps reluctantly have b(*en compelled, from
lime to time, to admit that COTTON has been the mainstay of our
More than twenty years ago, the cotton growers violated eco
nomic laws and produced more cotton than the world could absorb,
with the result that cotton went to five cents per pound. The cotton
growers learned their lesson, and adjusted themselves to conditions
to such an extent that, for years past, the world has readily used the
crops which they have grown at a reasonably fair price.
The European war has dislocated business the world over. No
class in any neutral state has been hit so hard as the cotton farmers
of our Southern States. They are in a pit, not of their own digging,
from which they are absolutely unable to escape without outside help.
The average man, viewing this situation, would conclude that
the government of a Democratic nation, administered by a Demo
cratic Party,.WOULD FEEL IT A BOUNDED DUTY and a privilege
to go to the rescue of this great and valuable class of producters, who
have (for the first time in their history) asked for help from the gov
ernment to which they have contributed so largely for three genera
Dut. and this is a very large BUT, the present Administration
has been able to find no avenue through which to help.
The President "fears" that it would not be sound economics to
help these producers. The Senate and House of Representatives part
ly share these fears, and partly fear the President. Conference after
conference has been held. Many large val?mes would be required to
Print the nuggets of wisdom that have fallen from the lips of these
statesmen. But the farmer CONTINUES TO SUFFER and is almost
The latest conference, convened in Washington on Monday, is
. omposed of governors, senators and congressmen. After two days
and one night of most earnest discussion, they can see but one way
i ut-and that is to tax the man on the verge of hunger for bread,
despite the fact that he is clothing the world !
The only dispute between these gentlemen is as to who shall do
tie work of putting on this prohibitive tax. One side insists that
he Federal government must do it, and the other side insists that the
Mates must do it.
The administration, which can find no precedent for helping th*
farmer, can (of course) easily find one for taxing him.
Curious, when one comes to think of it-this combined wisdom
of the Democratic leaders of the country. It does not seem to have
occurred to these gentlemen that the government could have gone to
the help of the farrher, thirty days ago for that matter, and have
made as a part of the contract, or as one of the conditions of grant
ing the help, that the farmer should cut his cotton acreage next year.
That never occurred to them.
Their proposition, boiled down, is to REFUSE., TC HELP
HIM, but to make him cut his acreage under penalty of a fierce tax.
In the meantime, the farmer has his crop on hand.
The cotton seed oil men, taxing advantage of the farmer's
need, have cut in half the price of his cotton seed. The American
cctton mills are holding off the markeL with a view of getting their
Mipplies at a very low price. The foreign cotton mills are practical
ly out of the market entirely. .
Suppose this taxation law, representing the sum of Democratic
v isdom, should be passed. it would put the government in ?he at
titude of saying: "You worked hard. You produced good crops.
Vou violated no economic law. But an unforseen contingency has
arisen with which WE can not cope. We have given this profound
thought, and we see but one remedy, and that is to t\AX YOU, if
; ou persist in working hard and making good crops!"
It is the first time that a government has penalized the peo
ple who have contributed so enormously to the prosperity of th?
Some farmers may be, for the moment, deceived by this
specious taxation proposition. But The Geoergia does not fear to
predict that, if this proposition becomes law, every man who advo
cated it will, in the next few years, be dammed politically, and
buried under such an avalanche of votes that Gabriel's horn will
never resurrect him to political life!
Of course, all of us understand that neither this law, nor any
other bearing on this matter, will be passed foy this congress. Our
senators and representatives are simply running around, blindly
seeking an avenue cf escape for themselves, and hoping that they ca .
deceive or divert the attention of the people from the main issue.
They may as well understand now as later that the attention of the
people will not be diverted. It is a question of bread. People can
not forget that. t
Why can not these officials'live up to their promises of relief,
in which they were so prolific a short time back?

Fowls Need Food Rich lr? Protein Dur
ing This Period.
Karin poultry molt annually, and the
molt in healthy fowls begins in early
itutmim nud continues for about four
months, lt will pay auy one who keeps
poultry to gire the hens special care
und attention during the molting peri
od, writes Ira G. Shellubnrger lu
The best plan to follow ls to begin
feeding tho fowls liberally on vegetable
The Langshan came from Eng
land, where lt lias long been popu
lar. In this country lt ia consid
ered ?.ne of the most useful fowls.
The hens are excellent layers, and
as a table bird the tangshan ls ex
cellent. The weights are: Cocks,
nine and one-half poundii; cockerels,
eight pounds; hens, seven and one
half pounds; pullet?, six and a half.
The Illustration shows a tangshan,
matter and food rich in protein. One
of the best and most common protein
feeds ls skimmilk, either sweet or sour.
It is claimed by the best of authorities
that skimmilk Ls more valuable ns food
for poultry than lt is for hogs or calves.
If skimmilk could be given in liberal
allowances the results obtained would
be quite satisfactory.
Wheat, which is rich in protein,
.djould also be fad in liberal quantities
when ut band und should be substitut
ed for corn. Sunflower seed will also
be found s valuable food nt this time.
Oue experiment station found thnt u
ration containing goodly portions of lin
s<vd meal caused the fowls to all molt
at practically the same time, earlier in
the season and more rapidly.
A ration that will pay any farmer to
feed bis fowls In qpunectlon with skim
milk is this, one: Three pounds com.
two pounds wheat, one-half pound lin
seed meal and one-half pound beef

whole mass together a rsl feed In hop

expense of grinding these grains feed

feed the corn rather sparingly.
KILLING POULTRY LICE.
Mercurial Ointment an EiTeotive Rem
edy on Mature E'irdt*.
[Prepared by poultry division, United
States dep'.-tment of agriculture.]
The modern and most effective meth
od of killing lice on mature poultry ls
by the use of mercurial ointment One
part of ointment ls mixed With two
parts of lard,'and a j.ortlon about the
size of a pea is rubbed on the skin of
the hen's body below the vent A space
not larger than the size of a quarter
dollar should be greased, as when a
larger surface is treated the mercury
will bc absorb-'d and the ben's egg pro
duction decreased. A short time ago
1,013 single comb White Leghorn hens
were treated in this way, and after
ward not o single louse could be found
on any of them.
The advantage of using the ointment
lies in Mic fact that it ls necessary to
tpply lt only once in six weeks. The
lice nre attracted by the moisture and
appear to flock to the spot treated
with the ointment. This method ls
preferable to dusting hens with insect
lewder or dipping them in a germicidal
solution, lt ls simpler, cheaper and
more effective. However, the mercu
rial ointment must not be applied to
baby chicks or to bens sitting on eggs
for hatching. The nse of Insect pow
der before silters are "placed on eggs
and twice during the hatch bi the best
and safest way for sitting hens.
Ch. nxtna ..wie* Feed.
When hens are ts& a dry mash from
hoppers and have grain scattered la
deep litter there ls little danger of their
becoming too fat yet it is not well to
adopt this method of feeding when hens
have been accustomed to a moist mash,
as the change ls likely to upset them.

wet to a dry mash and tao utter ls to
