BILL'S IN TROl lll.K.
At the request of many HiihHcrJbers we republish
tho following poem which uppeared originally In
tho Denver News.
'I've got a letter, parson, from my son away, out j
, An' my ol' heart ia heavy as un nnvll in my breast.
To think the boy whose future I had once so proud
Should wander from tbc path o' right an' come to |

He'd find himself a-plowin' in a mighty crooked |
He'd miss bis father's counsel,, en' his mother's1
But he said the farm was hateful, an' he guessed
he'd have to go.
1 know thar's big temptation for a youngster in th?
lut I believed our Billy had the courage to resist;

CONSTANCE FRNIKORB WOOLSON.
THE PIEDMONT FA I lt Ml'MT COME.
Tin- Intelligencer not?-?? (hut here and there
meetings are being held to get ready for the coun
ty fair next full. Orangeburg County IB to have
a meeting to prepare for u greuter fair next fall
than she has had heretofore, and lt is a >tafc bet
that the war cannot keep thia county from having
u fine agricultural fair. Other counties ure doing
the same thing.
Willie w;- are delighted to know that other coun
ties and ?er! Inns ure (i) have their annual gather
ings and their community fair?, we are most In
terested in the Piedmont Fair which should be held
tit Anderson next fall.- It would be a great pity not
to have this annual gathering to bring \mt in com
petitive exhibition the resources of the county. It
Hhouhl be easy to secure exhibits for such a fair.
Look at tho agencies which are now engaged in
doing work which would be worth BO much if
shown to the peuple of the county at large. Miss
Janye Carlington, and her girls could fill a big
section of one of thc fair buildings. Miss Maggie
Carlington, with her educational exhibits could be
worth much to the fair officials in slaging an ex
hibit of the county's educational advantages. Then
there are tho boys who are or will he members of
the boys corn clubs of the county, to suy nothing
of (he larger boys who will enroll under the ban
ner of County DeutonHlration Agent Garrison. W?
fsel sure that lt would require a very large build
ing to bold the poultry that would be placed on
We would, therefore, urge those whose duty lt is
to begin to orgunize a fair association to get busy
and let it be k;iOWn early that there shall be the
greatest Pi*?i'iuont Fair herc thin year that has ever
been Btaged m the Piedmont. We must have this
or lug behind in the forward procession of the pro
gressive counties In South Carolina.
GOOD KOA IIS AHE NOW NEEDED.
lt is worth u great deal to be a boy or Kiri grow
ing up in this day and time, with the great possi
bilities looming up l'?fore them. To be a country
boy and grow up on the farm now is a very dif
ferent thing from what lt was a few years ago.
Uncle Sam has stepped in and has set to work
agencies which are making country life much more
desirable, and adding to the pleasures and the en
joyments of rural life. It is lino to be a farmer
hoy and to know that thc great science of agricul
ture ls coming into its own, and to know that one
ls being trained in this the greatest of the sciences.
Look at the advantages to be derived from life
on the farm In Anderson County. Think of the
many agencies at work to make it easy, and prof
itable. The boys corn club work is most Import
ant. Not second to this 1B the girls canning club
work, the pig club, the poultry clubs, and other
agencies which add zest and life to rural condi
tions. Truly, life In the country is improving and
will be worth while yet. The great need now Is
good roads so that the fa-ocial side may not be neg
lected and so that the school and the church can
be easy of access. And, the good roads are as
sure to come as these other things. In fact they
are but fore runners of better ro&ds, and improve
ments all along the line.
WILL GIVE CHARLESTON A CHANCE.
Governor Manning has annouu'-ed that he In
tends to give the people of Charleston a chance to
administer the laws of thc State. In this he will
meet with approval by many of the citizens of the
City of the Sea. We cannot believe but tbat there
are many good people i. Charleston who will wel
come a return to law and order, and to an obed
ience to law. It has been a long way from respect
for any law in that city, and there have been
causes euough for this. Tho governor of the State
was not in favor of enforcing the law down there,
and the mayor has lately given forth a communi
cation which causes all law aibldlng citizens to
shrug their shoulders and wonder how long such
au official will be allowed to hold a high position
in the largest city In the State. Sworn to execute
the laws of the State and of the city, he-has an
nounced that he Iinows there are and have been
violations of the law there, and that he has done
nothing to stop lt. and that he will do nothing to
slop it Governor Manning ls right to give the peo
ple a. chance to enforce the law. but If they do not
thea he will take other steps. We opine that Char
leston will yet be shown that there Is some execu
tive authority in the hands of the chief executive,
and that he will have tho manhood to use such
authority when the authority of the law has been
trampled under foot as bas been the case In Char
leston for years.
NOW IS THE TIME TO SWAT THE PLY.
Uncle Sam ls waging a r<-. mtless war on the
deadly housefly and in a late bulletin prepared by
the department of agriculture, valuable Informa
tion is given on the best means of combating this
deadly pest. The most effective way of exterminat
ing the fly, according to the bulletin, is to eradi
cate his breeding places. The breeding season ot
the fly begins early la March and continues
throughout the spring and summer months. All
dirt should be removed from the premises, stables
cleaned and decaying vegetables destroyed.
The tty has rightly been called the undertaker's
traveling salesman, and in addition to his regular
??ur of "typhoid bugs," be carries a side line of
tuberculosis, asiatic cholera and other disease
germs. Now ls the time to "swat the fly."
WHY WILL NOT FARMERS ORGANIZE I
The Farmers' Union organisers were not greet
ed with a very large crowd last Saturday. .'Xi has
always beep a mystery to us why men who follow
agriculture did not follow the exemple sot by bank
ers, co.ion need crushers, carpenters, plumbers,
printers, doctors, lawyers, etc., and organise
themselves int? a body tor self-protection. They,
above all other avocations, should be the most In
dependent, and yet they are the most dependent
A farmers organisation kept free from politics
woulA.be of Incalculable benefit to farmers. The
trouble heretofore has be*n ' that some . sol fish
demagogue has taken advantage of such organisa
tions to ride Into office and feather his own nest.
II FIGHTING FOR PUKE MU,h. oj

So many dramatic disclosure* have been made]
in regari! to tho relation between dirty milk and
lise exceflBive death rate among infants that farm
ers are beginning to realize aa never brfore, the
necessity of co-operation with the municipal
authorities lu their fight for pure milk.
Milk ls certainly the most important article of |
food in the human dietary, and it is also the most
contaminable. It is. therefore, up to the farmer to j
see that thc milk from his dairy gets to city babies
in as reasonable a state of cleanliness as possible.
Not thut this is .an encluslvely baby problem, for
all sorts of diseases are carried through milk. ]
Tuberculosis is an example of this class, and a
number of epidemic? of diphtheria and scarlet
fever have been traced to the milk supply, but
when we pause to consider that one-fifth of all the
babies born in the United States die in their in
fancy from preventable diseases, and that sixty
per cent of these arc due to gastro-intestinal dis-1
eases due to improper feeding or impure milk, we
naturally begin to look into the cause.
I realize, of course, that not every funner can
liave his milking doue scientifically, bul it is pos
sible for him to produce Bafe milk for his own use

ils financial interest in the long run. Tar paper,
whitewash and homemade cement will insure a
sanitary stable at small cost.
Then, there should be a covered milking pale <n
place of the old-fashioned wldc-tnouthed pale?.
This will keep nine-tenths of the dirt out during
nilking time. All milk utensils may be kept clean

Among those who will be vastly benefltted by the
joud roads movement in this county, in the man in

wilt support the bond issue in the approaching I
.lection for that purpose.
The following are pertinent thoughts on the sab
lei t by Homer D. Wide, chairman of the good
roadB committee o' the National Farmers' Union:
No other citizen realizes the value of good
roads as does the farmer.
A community can safely be Judged by the
kind of highways li maintains. ??. .>
The greatest chasm betweeu the producer
and the consumer is the mud hole.
Production must cease when thc transpor
tation costs eat up the profits.
There ls something iaJlcally wrong with
the farmer who la opposed to good roadB.

opment that will be permanent and endur

and impair the efficiency of church work in

King James' Version
lt??. 8, J. Hood. I?? M. C.
On the fifth day ii April 1603 there
rame to the throne y Knglund a king
whose ?ame was dfslined to become
illustrious among lite lift ot the great
English sovereign*' This was James
I. who took up the < rown which Ellzu
betb had worn'sQ honorably for near
ly fifty years. He cume to the throne
at a critical t'iuw The people of
England, as y&il as of,all Europe,
were growingJhr-'d of the usurpations
of the clergyf aixl the abuses of the
established chun h. The long con
tinued tyranny ? hich hud been prac
ticed on the pi .tsantry of Eqgland
and Scotland had resulted in general
dissatisfaction mid discontent. Tired
of persecutions, the Puritans longed
for religious fr-cdom. They knew
that James bad heen trained up iu the
Presbyterian fuith of the church of
Scotland, and hence they welcomed
hint to the throne of longland, sup
posing that his reign would mean the
correction of these ohuses and the ad
vancement of the cause, of protestan
tism, to which lie had pledge! his
One of the first official acts of Tames
I after his accession to the English
?throne was to call a council of Puri
tan and Episcopal high-churchmen
from the varrous parts of his king
dom to discuss mutters of ecclesiasti
cal importance This council was
convened at Hampton Court in Jan
uary 1604. There the helrarchy was
represented by eight bishops, one
arch bishop, live deans, and two doc
tors. Three noted divines also ap
peared for the Puritan party. During
thc second day's proceedings, Dr.
Reynolds, president of Carpus College,
at Oxford, suggested to. the council
the advisability of revising all'tht old
versions of t?te Bible and making one
permanent .stannard translation, to be
accepted by tile- king and adopted
throughout his "nu'dom. The plans
whicb were laid before the king met
with his hearty approval. Being out
of sympathy with the Genevan Ver
sion which was then largely used in
England, he at once sanctioned the
proposed revision. In an address-be
fore the assembly he expressed his
approval of the plan, condemning all
thu translations made, up to that time,
especially the Genevan Version whose
marginal notes, as he declared,'were
"dangerous and full of treacherous
The king was very active in the
work. He hegan to cooperate with
the council by appointing fifty four
learned translators to do the work.
He commanded the bishop of London
to seek aid and suggestions of lin
guists and Bible scholars throughout
his entire realm. . Before beginning
the translating, no pains were spared
in searching for old manuscripts,
copies and codices, which were care
fully criticized, compared and revised.
The fifty four translators, appointed
by' his majesty the king, were not
only the most profound theologians,
but also th? most capable Hebrew and
Greek scholars available. They were
divided into six companies, two o',
which labored at Westminster, two at
Cambridge, and two at Oxford. Thc
work was begun in the year 1607 and
occupied two years and nine months.
No labor was too great for the trans
lators. Ail former translations were
laid under contribution to the success
of the collassal work which King
James undertook to accomplish. This
schools of gifted theologians procured
and examined all available - early
translations made by William Tyn
dale, Miles Couerdale and John -Wy
cliffe, carefully comparing these and
reading closely all the long tedious
manuscripts that fell into their hands.
When this task was completed a com
mittee, representing the various com
panies, met in London for nine months
to examine the work of the translators
and prepare the entire volume for
In making this revision, which waa
io t~ the only authorised Version of
the Holy Scripture, King James laid
down the strictest rules for the guid
ance of the scholars In their, methods
of translation. It was not to be too
free, nor was it to be slavishly literal.
The edition- known as the Bishop's
Bible published tn 1568 by Arch Bish
op 'Parker was to be, by the king's
command, the basis of the translation,
and lt was to be changed as little as
'possible. Proper names were to be
modernised In the matter of spelling,
and all ecclesiastical terms were to Ub
retaiued. One very positive ruliug
was that no marginal notes of a hom
lleticu!. or doctrinal nature were to
be allowed In the-authorised transla
tion. No polemical annotations,' or
theological discussions whatever, were
to be permitted, nothing but mere
verbal explanations. being a?.'owed in
the margin. The Great Bible and the
Genevan Bible were very distasteful
to the king, not because of the rend
ering Of the text, but because of the
marginal notes of a doctrinal nature
contained tn both these versions. The
former had been mad In 1539, by Arch
Bishop Cranmer, the latter In 1568 by
English exiles who had taken refuge
in Swltxerlond from the religious per
secutions of their ^own Isnd. Both
these translations had been' widely
popular being chained tn many of the
pupllts in England and Scotland; but
they were full of doctrinal criticisms
by Calvin and other commenti.iors ot
Ole Calvinistic school. These notes
were stricken out entirely, lest they
should lead some to sectarian blas.
There were siso many writers then
of the more liberal school of religions
thought and even heretics, who were
eager for the opportunity to Insert
their false Views and heretical ideas

the great evils that might arise from
