FROM DEMONSTRATOR GARRISON.
TU<* Intelligencer ts delighted that
Mr. W. D. Garrison lias been assigned
to Anderson County as farm demon

"RAISE A COLT" SLOGAN'.
The Intelligencer wishes to call at
tention to a grave mistake being made
in many sections of the State in selling
horses and mules to agents for ship
ment to the war countries. Several
car loads of farm animals have al
ready been shipped from this and ad
joining counties, and while they will
bring those who SPII a little ready
cash, it is a bad policy. They will be
.badly needed by the farmers, and lt
will be found that the matter -of re
placing them will be one of difficulty,
and horses and mules will sell to the
farmers when they have to buy again
at a greatly advanced price, or we do
not correctly read tho signs of the
Instead of selling their work ani
mals our farmers should be trying
their hand ut rnising horse and mule
colts. Now, if Auder:.,m and adjoining
counties raised more horses and mules
than they need for their own purposes
there would be some excuse tor selling
so many, but till this ls done there
should be no more sales made. It ls
a safe bet that these buyers have
exhausted the large stock farms out
west before coming South, and it can
thus be readily seen that the price of
farm animals will go up as the price
of wheat has risen. It ls a part of
economy and good business judgment
to hold oh to the horses and mules
of the country.
As n slogan to take thc place of the
Coolish ''Hny-a-'.talo" slogan of a few
weeks ago, let ns start thia one:
"Raise a Colt." On a recent visit to
Clemson College we saw several very
fine colts being raised there, and we
were told that, a mule colt could be
raised to work at a cost of not more
than $100. Of cours?, this means that
there must be good* pasturages and
business methods employed tn attend
ing to them. How many members of
the "Raise a Colt" campaign can we
enroll In Anderson County?
?THE TRENTON IDEA."
The card of Chairman Hammett
calling attention to the necessity for
liberal subscriptions for the support
of the chamber of commerce waa
timely, and we trust has resulted In
material increase in the amounts sub
scribed by many. If the chamber of
commerce is to do ita greatest and best
work U must'not be hampered ty a
lack of funda Aa suggested by Kr.
Hammett, debt and financial strin
gency will defeat the ends for which
the organisation la striving. Aa activ?
:hamber ls very much needed Just now,
nora so, perhaps shem over before.
It occurs to The Intelligencer that
this would he a good time to Institute
the "Trenton Idea" and extend the I
membership of the organization be
yond tiie limits of the city. There are
many good and able men outside the
city who would make valuable mem
bers, und whose duett would go far
towards keeping up the efficiency of
tho work. Then, too, the work of the
chamber of commerce should be ex
t.'mied, and there are many county
wide projects that should engage at
tentlon. True, these have been pro
moted, but why not liuve some mem
bers from the rural districts to help
push them along? We suggest "The
< LLJTSON AS A .MILITARY
President ItigKS told the editors at
the rec e nt conference at Clemson Col
lege that he wished them to offer any
suggestion or criticism that came to
mind as to the management of the col
lege. The editor of The Intelligencer
does not wish to be classed as a critic
of this splendid institution, and we
saw much there to commend, and lit
tle that could be criticised. We shall
offer one small suggestion which wc
believe would add to the efficiency of
th; college, and would create a bet
ter Impression upon the.-pbserver, and
have a better effect upon the student
body. We would like to see Clemson
College more military.
This college ls a military college,
and as such has thc services of an
,army officer BB commandant. In the
man the military features are ob
served, but there are many little
things done that are not strictly mil-!
Itary. For instance, cadets are allowed
to .. ear citizen overcoats, and a few |
cadets may wear them while many da
not. The '.adels do not reepond as
promptly to military commands as
strict military discipline demandB. lu
narooing at attention the ranks are.
not kept as well "closed up" as they
might bc, and one cadet was seen
marching into chapel with his hands
In his pockets. So far as we Baw. this
was not corrected. Marching Into the
dining hall they were allowed to fall
out of ranks, and thc marchers to
class rooms did not keep strict order.
We ure not calling attention to these <
things in a fault finding way, but
simply to afford a reason for a sug-1
gestion we shall make.
We would suggest that strict mil
itary discipline bp enforced, and that
cadet officers require strict obedience
to all commands, thus placing'Clem
son College on a par with other mil
itary institutions. AB a furthet sug
gestion we would like to sec al pro-I
fesBors and officials ot the collage in
uniform. This would add greatly'to I
the appearance of the corps abd to
tho neatness of the dress. It Would
be uniform, and would not be lmore
costly than citizens clothes are] We
feel sure that the commandant! will
agree with ns that these suggestions
a?e worthy consideration.
In a recent address on the military
college. Col. O. J. Bond, superintendent
of the Citadel said: ;
"The invaluable lessons of prompt
and cheerful obedience, of consistent,
punctuality, or orderliness and indus
try taught by military discipline are
among its best recommendations. The
systematic routine of military training I
is not wasted time, but a recognition
of proper proportions.
"In the military system, duty is ?
word much heard and often cordially
hated. Hut thc moral value of placing
duties upon college students, arduous,
oftentimes aupleajant duties, has a
high value iu appearing to their man
hood and sens? of honor.
"Rwjpcct for*, law and authority ls j
3ne of the first lessons taught in mil- |
Itary discipline. In fact, there is an
objection raised to military training |
because lt teaches a boy to obey un
questioningly. But it seems to me ti?u I
the military system, where a young
man leads for four years a life of self
restraint, obedience to law, and atten- |
tlon to duty, produces habits which
win be of Inestimable service in after !
Referring to the matter of wearing ?
uniform he said:
"Consider for a moment the
democracy of the uniform. The bro
gan ned boy from the plow handle on
the farm and the well-dressed youth
from the city do not look much unlike
when they stand in uniform side by
side in the ranks. In uniform they
start at the post together, neither
with any handicap, and lt ls to be the
better man who wins the race. Char
acter and merit alene will count."
The above remarks are intenued aa
a kindly suggestion and not meant as
a criticism. To the casi.al observer,
not initiated In atrict military usases,
these minor oversights in discipline
would sot be obs?rved. hut they are
noticeable to a mst. of military' ex
perience. Clemson College in her 800
strong yoong men. has toolmaking of
a military college second to none in
the country. We hope to aaa thia
school the peer of the Citadel, the V.
M. I., or any school In military tactics
ia well as in other Unes. i? .
