people of the state, who are not yet
ready to take their places upon the

their money into the loan. Especially
the current wages of the workers of
the state and nation are desired since
the savings of the past have already
been invested. It Is hoped that the

traveling salesmen in the state to

all others who by virtue of their call

Commissioner Watson of the state

"In the South," says the commis

Food Supply For Only Few Weeks.
- More discouarging than price alti
tudes of foods as revealed in the sur
vey by Col. E. J. Watson, commission
er of agriculture, is the limited stock
of staple food products now in store
throughout the state. Census of the
food and feeds. in nearly 700 stores,
wholesale houses, mills and food man
ufacturing plants indicates that the
full stock would be consumed within
three or four weeks. Estimated on
the basis of average consumption, the
full stock of corn would be dissipated
in three weeks. Stores of available
flour are calculated to last through
two and one-half weeks, with the full
stock of meal consumed within a fort
A somewhat parallel situation ex
ists as to meats and lard. Bacon on
hand would carry through two and
one-half weeks, hams three yeeks,
lard seven weeks and butter two
weeks. A seven weeks' supply of
sugar is estimated.

neering department at the Universtly

War Prices on All Roughage.
War prices prevail in roughage mar
kets in South Carolina and the marked
scarcity of some of the foods is cal
culated to greatly intensify the de
mand later in the season. Peavines
are quoted generally at $20 a ten.
i~ttle alfalfa is available.- This is
selling from $25 to $30. Oat straw is
quoted at $10 in mnast places, with cot
tonseed hulls bringing $20 generally.
The supply is reported to be very low
over tihe state.
Beef Cattle Scarce and High.
Beef cattle are exceedingly scarce
in South Carolina markets. Those now
selling are much better conditioned
incident to the imp~rovedl pasturago
over the state. Prices range from 5 to
'7 cents a pound. Hogs are slightly
more plentiful. Prices for hogs aro
9 andl 10 cents and even 12 cqnts,
Wide variance prevails in the mar

Instead of paickyV haste, careful

of such a commission, and the Italian

Preparing for Registration.
Preparations for the registration on
June 5 of all men betweeni the ages
of twenty-one and thirty for service
in the National army Went forwar-d
r'apfdly throughout the country, anad,
with a blush of shame be it said,
schemes were sprung in many locall
ties to defeat the success of the army~
law andl to fight against conscription.
In Texas and WVest Virginia ,organiza.

and in those states and many othe:
places arrests were mfadle by the sece
service men, *lFederal officers every,

andi othler~ intentional or unintentiona
aidls of the kaiser, These gathering:
voie'ed the dlemand that the Unites
States government at once announce
its war: aims in (definite and concret<
terms aind make peace as soon ats thosi
aims are achieved, The Socialists, ac
cordinmg to their leaders, are conucernes
chiefly in spreadling their doctrine:
throughout the \vorld andI see in th<
war, a fine opportunity to accotmplil
this, As for the conscientious objec
tors, one may well Quote C'olone

As registration day approached the
number of cowards fleeing tihe coun
try to avolid the draft increased. A
great many (rossml the borders into
Mexico and Canaida, and considerable
numbers went to Cuba. All decent
citizens join in the hope that these
creatures will never have the limpu
dence to return to the United States.
President Wilson, louti to abandon
entirely the volunteer system, on -Tues

more volunteers to bring the regular

What Is Doing in Russia.
Developments of the week in Rus
sin were both encouiraginpig and dis
couraging. Admittedly, the fate of
that new republic is in the hands of
Kerensky anid lie has taken a firim
stand In tle matter of restoring dis
cipline in the army. The soldiers scen
willing to Submit, ind Ilre giving evi
dence of a renewed intention to conl
tinue tile fight agaiIIst the central pow
ers. They have been heartened for
this by the injunctions and appeals of
the councils of peasants' and work
inen's deputies and by the exhortations
of government officials. This state of
affairs is recognized by Germany li a
statement that an early offensive by
the Russians is expected.
The most discouraging news from
iussia was contained in a statement
by Minister of Futance Shingaroff that
the industrial cr sis is so acute that
only a miracle can save the country
from economic ruin. The demands of
the workmen are so enormous that
most of the industrial enterprises
working for the national defense will
be compelled to close down before
long. On top of this comes the formal
demand of the troops at the front
that they be suppled with enough mu11
nit ions to fight on :tin e(11ual phine with
tile ot her helligerents.

L matter of greater interest agricultur
kily .tha.. may be thought of IiI tits

ooming up before the blisiness men of

Irst in hits plan of organizing mar

Upon short notice a representative

rhe proposition was carefully gone

The plan is to employ an expert
mlyer who will have headquarters at
3rangeburg. le will purchase all

ng to standards. Cotton will not be
pnurchase'd. This expert wilIl teach
hlie farners how to grade their corn,
4rain, eggs, etc., in order to secure
the highiest prices according to grades.
Tie. trouble has been heretofore that
farmlers would bring in corn, for ex
amleIIC, for sale, and tile bulk of it
would be a mixture of good and bad
corn. le, therefore, ol)tained poor
prices for the corn. The nillers do
not. care to purchase Southern corn
Iecause it is not graded. The market
Ing association will fill this want and
the farmer will not only market hits
products according to standards, but
will have a ready market at any time
during the year.
The expert buyer will miake l his con

adolted and tle association will not
be allowed to pay more than 8 per

to carry on the marketing associa

furnish, bags, contaliners,. etc., for sale
to the farmers at a slight profit, In
order that tie farmer may sell his
produce In the standard way.
The organization of such marketing

mean niuch, especially if the farmer
