FOR THE SURVIVORS.
The old soldiers ot the State will
doubtless bo delighted wita the gen
erosity of the hut legislature, which
made tho largest appropriation cvei
made for pensions in South Carolina.
Tho chocks fer this amount has been
malled to tho survivors of th" "thin
grey lino" and thcro will be ninny lit
tle needs and wants supplied by "ray
pension money." ThU year especially
will tho stipend come In hnndy and
will be worth much to the old fellows
lt would be fine If the State could
afford to mako this enough to sup
port in comfort every one of the oid
'boys, bu* that would be too . much tc
expect yet. The time ls coming, how
ever, when the Uno gets a little thin
ner that we shall be abie to do this
nud wo feel sure that there will bc
no more Joyful task than this for thc
young men who desire to honor thur
the patriotic wearers of the grey in
tho '60's. Theio are 498 of the old
soldiers to receive pensions In this
county, and the total amount for An
derson will be 810,875.
RECORD WHEAT TI ELD.
There shall bo bread and to spare,
according to the yield of wheat which
ls looked forward to this year. The
"government crop report will be is
sued today, and will doubtless show
Jhe largest yield of wheat ever made
"iii the United States. The western
wheat fields have shown an lucreaae
In acreage of over 4,000,000 acres, and
tho eastern section about as large
proportionately. The eattmated yield
tor this yoar, baaed upon the average
yield for the last ten years, ls 14
bushels per acre. Last year, however,
tho yield wag 19 bushels per acre, and
this amount may be duplicated. So
the wheat crop thia year may reach
700,000.000 bushels, and will be the
largest by far the country has ever
grown, The Intelligencer ls glad \<\
know that the Piedmont section ot
n-mth Carolina has awakener to the
possibility ot growing wheat, and that
the crop this year in this section will
also be the largest eveY grown.
Greenwood County has a "live*
farm demonstration agent, and One

county "sit np and take notice." He
is progressive and hard working, and

seeking really to do away with tho
major causes of flies, and other in

least possible harm will occur as a
result of their location.

barn and stables.
It may be argued that other stables
are located as near the business dis

Holstein, bad apparently * taken the
count and lay feet upward on the
sward. She was hiccoughing like a
balking automobile motor. Three
other cows were lying about her in a
Beml-circle and they seemed to be tak
ing no interest in life. Barby, a big
Jersey milker, was trying to emulate
her ancestors in doing tho Jump over
the moon. On all sides were tired
looking cows, some recumbent, others
on their knees. Their bovine solos
were ot the "washa matter?" type.
Sherard's neighbors were , aroused
and soon there was a board of inquiry
in session. The veterinarians came,
investigated and found that there
were no symptoms of disease In the
cows. Then it was discovered that In
a nearby orchard was a cider press
and on the ground was a big pile of
apple pnlp, better known aa pernease.
