A Hog for Every Man.
When the census was taken in
1910 there were in South Caro
lina 664,475 hogs and' pigs, .of
which 243,058 were classified as
"spring pigs." According to the
same census the number of
white rpeople in the state was
679,162. Thus it will be seen
that-there are not enough hogs,
by 14,687, to go around even
among the white people if each
person eat a hog a year. There
would be no satsage, spare-ribs
and back-bone stew whatever
og sho2- was impressive, as
ys is. No one who saw
big pigs and the little pigs
bted that Satbth Carol.na is
rdinarily well adapted to
raising of great hogs as well
of great men and, in our
on, hogs re necessary to
uction of great planters.
Probably there is not on~e
among the truly great in South
arolina that is not, in part,
-og-fed, and, if that be so, how
may we expect to see "grand
old South Carolina" occupy her
proper place in the iiation if
Illinois, Missouri, Indiana and
/Kansas pork is to enter largely
into the construction of our star
W When the census of 1920 is
taken there should be at least
one hog each for every man,
w'man and child in the state,
>~g the negroes. The Na
Columbia in 1913, will greatly
to that eno.-The State,
This should stimulate the neo
pl fthis county to engage
more actively in hog-raising.
This is a corn co'mnty, and ;hogs
can be raised here more profit
~ ably than in many places in our
own state. The largest crop of
ce'---mbe gathered in this
' ear in its history,
cpin should begin to
irupply and im
ne t, ear et him ar
-range to have two. next, and the
*maniwho did not -raise one this
year let him get one next year.
A hog of good stock can be made
to weigh 300 to 406 pounds at a
year old with very little expense,
and almost every family at least
can raise one. It beats buying
meat from the stores. Try it.

A company of Laurens county
capitalists, it is reported. haye
bought 17,000 acres of land in
Chesterfield county with a view
of cutting it into smaller tracts
and selling to home-seekers
from the North and elsewhere,
This enterprising undertaking
is to be commended. We need
more settlers in this state and'
smaller farms. There is plenty
of room in this county for home
seekers, and our people should
begin to make efforts to induce
home-builders to locate here.

pe clip the following very in
teresting communication from
the Columbia State written by
Prof, V. E. Rector. Prof. Rector
was principal of the Six Mile
Baptist Accademny last year and
resigned to accept a position 'as
teacher by appointment of the
Unitedl States Government in
the Philippine Islands. The
letter will be read with interest
by many of his friends here.
Editor of the State:
Much is being written and said
about: what the United States
should do with the Philippine
Islands. Many good men in the
States seem to think that these
Islands should immediately be
given their independence and
allowed to establish a govern
ment of their own. After a
four-months stay in the Philip
pines, the writerdis of the opinion
that the Filipinos are utterly in
capable of self-government.
The peonle are living on at least
00 islands which are scattered
for a 1,000 miles through the
sea. The natives speak eight
istinct dialects. Often the
people on one side of the moun
ains can't make themselves
nderstood to the people on the
>pposite side. No one of these
ialects can ever become a corn
on language for all. Of 1
ourse English is being taught
o thousands of the younger1
eneration, and within a half1
~enturv, perhaps, English will
e used throughout the Islands.
Should the efforts of the Ameri
an teachers stop now, it is theI
elief of many that the Spanish
vould again become the official
anguage, and only a very smnall r
er cent. of the people know j
my Spanish. Most of the Fili- t
inos are yet ignorant, but they 1,
re making rapid strides along ~
The Filipinos know but little il
f the value of 'unified effort. ri
hey have very few organized t
dustries. Statistics show that d
ly 4 per cent. of the comn
erce of the islands is carried
n by native Filipinos. The
hin oi tr hA eymmfercial menr
any roads are beingI
wires are connecting
ne important islands.
dded to these disadvantages,
he resources of the islands are
indeveloped, consequently the
)eople are poor. Every effort is
)eing made to develop the agri
-ultural interests. The wealth
>f the islands is locked up in
,he soil. The bureau of educa
:son makes it compulsory that
avery school shall have a school
rarden, and many of the schools
n carpentry and woodwork.
[In fact, the school emphases
aow is being given to domestic
science and industrial work.
The bureau thinks that the
people should learn to work as
well as how to wear shoes and
The poverty of the people
would make it impossible for
them to support an army and
navy of sufficient strength to
protect the islands from foreign
foes that could use them to good
advantage in relieving the con
gested conditions at home. Can
the United States, in the name
of humanity and in the name
of freedom and liberty for which
it stands afford to withdraw its
protection from so simple a
a people until they ar'e better
able to protect themselves?

The demand for cotton this
year by fourteen countries out
side the United States is placed
at twelve and a half million
bales; with an estimate of an
additional two million bales for
several countries not reportink,
includiug- British Indi- This,
with the Americanu umption
places th- e6as of the. world
rn this year, as estimated at.
Washington, at about twenty
million bales. The figures are
in some cases fairly accurate:
in others they are palpable
guesses. The general result
may be approximately correct.
Last Thursday. at the request
of an attendant on the Farmers'
Union meeting -in Columbia,.
the editor of The State estimat
ad the world's needs for this
year at between nineteen and
bwenty million bales, but on ac
count of conditions in China and
[ndia it is impossible to do more
than roughly estimate until a
better system for securing in- i
Eormation in those countries is 1
But what good does it do usi
to know th'at the mills of theI
world need 20,000,000 bales of
cotton to fill their orders this
year, unless we have approxi
mately accurate information as
to the number of bales India,
China, Manchuria, one or twoI
South American countries and
E'gypt, have produced or will
produce; or unless we knowl
what percentage of the goods
manufactured must be made in
American cotton?-The State.
