A. I. Hutchison of Rjo(k Hlill. read
ing clerk of the house of representa
tives, brought to colmiIII)ia a iIkIlhue
story of a bank's cooperation With the
farming interests of its co)uIllun ity.
The National Union Hank of Rock
Hill has hit upon a novel scheme to
better the breeds of livestock in its
neighbor-h)ood. F1ai th in the possibilities
uf dairying and stock raising was sup
por'ted by an investment in 10 register
d Hereford bulls from the West.
I'hese the bank has placed with farm
3rs in different sections of the coun
y. The only source of revenue is $1
or service, which fund is to feed the
tninals and provide caretakers. It is
Igured that each calf from these
.hroughbred cattle will be worth $5
nore than offsping from scrubs. Should
.00 calves be dropped the first year,
,his alone will provide the nucleus for
t large herd of beef cattle, which will
)e more than doubled the second
The Hereford is largely a beef type,
md ranks next to the Shorthorn in the
iumber raised tbhroughout the United
States. Their popularity consist much
n their adaptability to adverse cir
mmstances. They are good rustlers
ind thrive under conditions of scant
pasturage where other breeds would
In continuation of this policy of
Incouragenent and help to the farm
wrs, tle bank has taken another step
f equal signiflance. This was the of
rer to pay for all blooded hogs the
rarmers wanted to buy, the only secur
Ity asked being a mortgage on the
liogs to be paid off whenever conveni
lent. In consequence many farms
have been stocked with the best
breeds of hogs available. Commenting
on1 the bank's leadership in this direc
tion, Mr. Hutchison said:
"Rock Hill is rapidly building up q
background of agricultural develop
ment which we believe has no equal ir
the state. In addition to all this activit)
in live stock and hogs. hundeds o
tons of alfalfa are being mowed ir
the neighborhood of Rock Hill, the al
falfa clubs now having more than 10(
members. This hay is disposed o0
largely in Rock Hill, the thrifty farm
er bringing it to town, and thE
thriftless taking it home. As an in.

Teachers Prepare Illiteracy Data.
The South Carolina club students
attending the summer school of
teachers at Winthrop College have
comipiled somec interesting statistics
relative to native white illiteracy In
South Carolina. The members are
wondering whether illiteracy has
anything to do with econoimic condi
tions in the various counties.
"The South Carolina club students
think that 'moonlight schools' are
as badly needed in their state as they
were in Rowan county, Kentucky,
when a heroic band, composed of every
school teacher, determined to wipe
out illiteracy-and wiped it out,"-says
ia paper prepared by the club members.
Some of the facts established by
the club members are as follows'
Orangeburg county has 4 per cent.
of white illiteracy and $351 of - -per
capita farm wealth.-the average farm
wealth for the state being $304 per
Sumter county 1han 4 per cent.- of
white illiteracy aia 1345 of per cap
ita farm wealth.
Lee county has 10 per cent of white
illiteracy and $453 of farm wealth.
Saluda county hias 5 per cent. of
white illiteracy and $397 per capita
Florence county has 9 per cent. of
white illiteracy and $3q8 per capita
Greenwood has 6 per cent. of white
Illiteracy and $342 of per capita farm
On the other hand:
Georgetown county has 13 per cent
of white illiteracy and $108 of per
capita farm wealth.
Ilorry county has 10 per cent. of
white illiteracy and $215 of per ca'pita
Union has 13 per cent. of white Il
literacy and $222 of per capita farm
Chesterfield county has 20 per cent,
of white illiteracy and $277 of per
capita farm wealth.
Williamsburg county has 14 per
cent. of white illiteracy and $253 or
per capita farm wealth.
In Spartanburg county there are
nearly 6,000 native wOhite men, women
and children more than ten years of
age who can neither read nor write
In Greenville county there are
nearly 4,000. In Anderson county
Just under 3.500.
There are five counties in Souti
Carolina with each more than 2,000
and 12 counties with over 1,000 whc

secured the services of Chief Bet.h
rens, who is onl;e of the most entu'
slastic firemen inl tite state. and who
has given a lifetime to the service.
Among the insurance men Chief Belt
rens ranks very high and ie is re
garded as one of the most efficient fire
chiefs in the United States.
The plan of having Chief Behrens
make these visits has been found
very successful In North Carolina and
in other states which have reduced
their fire waste. It is not expected
that Capt. Behrens will be able to
visit more than 25 or 30 towns this
year. It is the purpose of the insur
ance commissioner to secure the ser
vices of Capt. Belrens or some other
expert fireman each year so that the
work- will be completed and that all
towns will be visited in the next two
or three years.
It is expected that Chief Behrens
will commence this week to make his
visits to the various towns of the
state. He will give about three weeks
to this service.
This is a purely gratuitous and pa
triotie work on the part of Chief Belt
trens. He has refused to allow tle
state to compensate him at all for his
work. He will act as a deputy of the
insurance department. which will bear
his traveling expenses.

Adrian, Mich. - "I sufered terribly
with female weakness and backache and
got so weak that I
could hardly do my
work. When I
washed my dishes I
had to sit down and
when I would ageep

so poorly that my folks thought I was
going into consumption. One day I
found a piece of paper blowing around
the yard and I picked it up and read it.
It said 'Saved from the Grave,' and
told what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegeta
ble Compound has done for women. I
showed it to my husband and he said,
'Why don't you try it?' So I did, and
after I had taken two bottles I felt
better and I said to my husband,'I don't
need any more,' and he said 'You had
better take it a little longer anyway.'
So I took it for three months and got

should remember that there is one tried

women are prone, and that is Lydia E.
