Esalse 1Vlm 3PICKENS, S. C., JULY,24, 1913 NME i~
Dear Mr, Editor: There will
be held in your county farmer's
institutes on the following dates
and at the following places:v
J. W. Hendrix's, Pickens route
4, August 5th; T. R. O'Dell's (
Liberty route 3, August 6th.
There will be present practical V
farmers in the demonstrationI
work, and experts from Clemson :
College to address the farmers
on subjects relating to their v
every day work on the farm. n
These institutes are held in the
interest of the farmers. The sal- 1
aries and expenses of these men d
are paid by the %tax payers of
the State, and the farmers owe a
It to themselves to attend these v
meetings, and derive 'all the a
benefit possible from hearing the U
lecturers. These men are public
servants, anxious to serve the
farmers. It is no easy task to 0
travel from county to county,
Sday after day and deliver ad- V
dressed, end to meet hunderds i
of people, Therefore these men
are entitled to be encouraged fi
when they are e.'deavoring to G
perform a public service that is
filled with so much promise, pro- k
vided that the farmers will sim- G
ply cooperate by a'tending the
meeting, and seek information
by asking questions that will be 0n
cheerfully and gladly answered
by all the lecturers. It is grati
fying to know that the prejudice a
that was onco held by the far
mers against scientific men is a
passing away, All of the great c'
discoveries that have been made n
in the i'nteirest of agriculture we 0
owe toTiientific mien. It was
the scietific man who discovered
that leguminous crops are able
to take nitrogen from the air and
deposit it in soil, and save the
farmer the most costly of all i
fertilzer ingredients; it was
th e scientific man who made it
possible for us to overcome to a s5
large degree the ravages of hog R
cholera by the use of hog cholera 1
serum; it was the scientific man
who enabled us to secure a seed A
corn that would give a greater s<
yield per acre, by reason of care
ful selection and breeding; it is F
to the entomologist and plant M
pathologist that we go when
insects and plant diseases are
destroying our crops; it was sci
+ entific men who invented and f
manufatured all improved im- a
plement for the preparation and
cultiyation of the soil and the
haryesting of the crop. Surely, w
when we realize these facts, we
must respect and be willing to
heed the instructions of these G
students of plants and soil. So I fi
plead with the farmers of South
Carolina to'attendl these meet- ci

To Be Guarded
Columbia.--By virtue of the author
ity vested in the executive committee
of the state board of health by a re
cent act of the general assembly an
important resolution was adopted by
the board at its quarterly meeting in
regard to the emptying of crude sew
erdge iuito -streams. The resolution
passed reads As follow:
"No city, coamunity, town or cor
poration, having a 'ewerage system,
shall empty crude sewerage into any
stream of South Carolina without hav
ing permission from the state board
of health. If the state board of health
deems it unsanitary or dangerous to
permit such disposal of crude sewer
age, said city, town, community or .
corporation shall establish a sewerage
disposal system approved by the state
board of health." The title of the act
by 'which such authority was given
the board is: "An act to authorize the
executive committee of the state board
of health to adopt, promugate and en
force rules and regulations for the
betterment and protection of the pub
Another point brought up for con
sideration was the report of the con
dition of the sewerage system of Ches

filed by Tucker Cunningham, and af

cluded to send a state health officor

Hookworm Hunt is Systematic.
Columbia.-That the state board of
health is thoroughly systematic in its
efforts to reach the peoplo is indicated
by the methods employed by the direc
tor of rural sanitation, J. LaBruce
\Vard, M. D. WVhen the assistant phy
sicians in th!s departuent go into a
county to make a survey and adminis
ter the hookworm treatment, letters
are sent to all school trustees, rural
oarriers, country merchants, postmas
i ters, physicians and county omcers,
asking co-operation in bringing the
treatment to the attention of the peo
ple. When the pubulc schools are in
session letters are sent to all the
teachers, and through these literature
is sent directly into the homes. In
each cohnty in which a survey is made
the directors establish five dispens
aries, that the treatment may 'be eas
ily accessible to persons in the re
motest parts of the county.
No Election in Kershaw County.
Camden.--After carefully chocking

the necessary one-third of the quali
fled voters as required by law, and,
therofore, will not order an election.
The oiginal petitions,.'which woero cir
culated in all Darts o't' the county cons

carefully checked over 'and there were
found names appearing en the peti
