THE UNFORTUNATE HTRIKE.
The striko nt the Equinox mills Just
at thia time ia most unfortunate. The
people of Anderson and. of the entire
county have Just been congratulating
themselves that every cotton mill In
Anderson waa running on full time,
and that the wages being paid the
operatives would go far towards keep
ing up trade, conditions and business
in and around Anderson. Now this,
hope has been shattered and a strike
ls on. Hundreds of families are
thrown out ot employment and if thia
condition ia allowed to continue, suf
fering will ba sore to follow. It is to
be deplored that something could not
have been done to avert the strike. It
will be much more to be deplored if
nothing can he'done to stop IL The
Intelligencer dees not wish In thia
editorial to haye .anything to say aa
to the right and the wrong of this
disagreement between the officials of
the mill and. the striking weavers.
Each aide, of course, thinks lt Is tight;
and must think so strongly to main?
tain Ita position as they are doing.
What we wish to do ia to call at
tention to Uah fj;st fjial the commun
ity also baa some tights, and that lt
ls a duty bo^sJoWto this disagree
ment owe to tho community to mako
?Arnes? aa? < <m-?ieuii?oua ??Torta to
settle their differences, so that work
may be resumed, and the consequent
suffering and.loss avoided. The civic
life of Anderson cannot afford to have
thia industrial plant shut down at this
time, and a "give and take" policy
should be pursued on both sides.
So we confidently expect and hope
that reason will prevail and that the
disagreement will prove only tempo
rary. If there la a desire to be "bull
headed" on the part of any connected
in any way with thia unfortunate dis
agreement let those who feel thia way
atep aside and allow cool and disin
terested persona to adjudicate the
matter. The cotton milla of Uris, sec
tion have been ; very free from dif
ferences of opinion resulting in
strikes, and we trust thia ts only a
temporary cessation ot work, and that!
we shall have but little more of it
now or at any time.
FARM PLANN I Nt;.
If each farm in any community ia
clean, tidy, and well kept, presenting
a thrifty, home-life appearance, the
whole neighborhood win be atractiva
to visitors add satisfying to residents, j
Local and county fair boards might
create a very valuable farm improve
ment habit hy offering a liberal prise
for the best planned farm In a neigh
borhood or In a county.

"No. I have hot shown lt to yon, bat

and the day bet?re attending the meet,
lug of the farm demonstration agents,

the farm demonstrators were rank

President Higgs, and several of the
professera had the editors in tow sev
cal hours before they would let thc
demonstrators gel at them, and so
much that to th? scribes was new and
wonderful had been seen, that th?
editors wer? easy marks to Dr. I .ou g

turned over to them to be salted away.
It was Wonderful, Thc college and
tho eight huudred boys being trained
thore to da the work of the Stat? when
their terms are over, ia an ever in
creasing delight to those who occas
ionally see the college and the boys.
The enthusiasm and the deep earnest
ness, coupled with the accurate und
trustworthy information possessed by
those who are revolutionizing the
science of agriculture in South Caro
lina, created a deep and lasting im
pression on the newspaper men, and
they understand thia uplifting move

done in reading and studying of the

Tterreal purpose of, Jheconference
between the editors of the dally nows
papers and the denionstratton agents,
was to devise means by which each
could be more helpful "to the other,
livery demonstrator unhesitatingly
stated that he considered 'he coopera
tion of the newspapers un invaluable
asset to his work. 'The newspaper
editora stated that they believed the
work belog done by these demonstra
tors of the greatest importance, and
v.-?ru willing, to cooperate with them
in every way possible to spread their
gospel of better farming. Some really
helpful suggestions were made on
each side, and an effort will be made

handled through the demonstrators

through the Sf tc headquarters at
Cit oison College. A system of reports
with special mention of meritorious
work will doubtless be arranged, and
from th?se, reports Prof. Long will
cull 'what will be helpful to every
county and forward this to the news
It was a great meeting. It is o vi- (.*

work in South Carolina jus now ia be

of able asslsants, who are using such
aound and logical methods to reach
the peuple who need to be reached,
and tb help them to help themselves.
Tho figures In Prof. Long's annual re
port were astounding. His work cost
a total of $54,000. two-thirds of which
was contributed by thu National gov
ernment, and resulted In a profit to
the people of tho State of $2,500,000.

Charleston has a warm admirer and

EDITOKH OFF DUTY.
The editors at Clemson College
found several hundred ordinary cab
bage plant? in "individual" pots. "Too
aristocratic," said Editor Brimson. "If
the farmer finds this out, he will stop
his son from attending auch a high

ville editor, on being shown over on
of the hot houses at Clemson College.

Stratton has made a special
tudy of grain elevators tor the South,

lillties tn this section, and through
mt ins South. He says that th North
jdamtausa the' ooustruclton of grain
devator* was begun about five yeat
i co when the boll weevil drove tb*
cotton plant out and grain was sub
stitute instead; be saya that all o?
these plants are doing splendidly In
that part of Louisiana and few people
there now of planting cotton,
except upon a rory moderate scale.;
It has In fact, according to Mr.
Stratton, revolutionised conditions all
over North Louisiana. Such condi
tions will also prevail here, only on a
larger scale, since thc lands are bet
ter and the farmers in better shape
to prosecute gram planting, not bav
log become almost bankrupt through
tho boll weevil.
Mr. Stratton says that Anderson is
a splendid location for a plant, and
that it wiri pay well herb and be of
great benefit to the entire county.
