Early planted cotton is up to a good

Small gra is looking fairly well.
The prospects for a fruit crop is
good, which is something unusual, to
have two good fruit crops together, as
last year was a good fruit year. It
certainly is a blessed thing in tryirng
times like now. People have begun to
"feel it," and war has not been going
on but a short time, but what will it be
in three or four years from now if tho
war continues? It behooves everybody
to economize, deny themselves of pleas

take advantage of everything they can
save that is growing and is made, and
by so doing they are not only helping
themselves but are helping to win the
greatest war the world has ever known.

or woman who would not try to save

When this great struggle is over
some will say "we gained the victory,"
when on their part it will be a case of
"Betsy and the bear." If the writer
knew this evening that Germany would
be the conqueror in this great struggle
we had rather be laid in some cemetery
with each member of our little family
beside us than to see that day. If it
comes to that and we are not either
murdered by the brutes or our homes
broken up and our happiness destroyed
we will see our children have to asso

class of people on God's green earth.
A man that would be a slacker in a
time like this would be too cowardly to
raise his hand against a negro rapist
though it be his wife or daughter.
While the writer is unable to shoulder
a gun and go to France, if Uncle Sam
has any place either in the United
States or across the water that he can
use us to help in any way to gain this
victory, we are ready to leave our wife
and little children and go. We had
rather die and save their honor and
virtue than to live and see it destroyed.

Meatless Days Will Not Be
Inaugurated at Present if
Economy in Eating Meat is
Practiced, Says Food Admin.
Columbia.-The Food Administra
tion is extremely desirous of securing
economy in the consumption of all
kinds of meats without the reinstal
lation of meatless days at the present.
The seasonal decline in the volume
of animals coming to market is now
in progress and its volume will un
doubtedly further decrease during the
next few months, as is usual, but the
probable amount of such decrease is
yet obscure, says the Food Adminis
A statement given out here today,
by William Elliott, Food Administra
tor for South Carohua, and signed by
Herbert Hoover, says:
"The necessities for shipment
abroad to our army and allies are very
large and amount to roughly 75,000,
000 pounds of meat and meat prod
ucts of all kinds per week against a
pre-war normal of less than 15,000,000
pounds. Even with these large ship
ments the allies have found it neces
sary to reduce consumption of all
kinds of meats and put it to an average
of about one and one-quarter pounds
per week per person in order that no
further draft may be made upon ship.
ping that is now required for the
transport of our soldiers.
"Our consumption of meats is about
three and one-quarter pounds per
week per person, and if we are to
make both ends balance (luring the
short marketing season, we must have
further economy. -
"If the public will continue rigor.
ous elimination of waste and will fur
ther economize by reducing the quan
tity prepared for each meal of all
kinds of moats and poultry, more par
ticularly beef, and will restrict their
purchases accordingly, the Food Ad
ministration hopes that the necessary
balance can he maintained. A general
adherence to these recommendations
will avoid the inconvenience which
arises in many directions from meat
less days and will cause less interfer
ence in the daily preparation of food."
Poople Asked to Give Up Eating
Wheat Broad Until After
Columbia.-The wheat situation is
the most serious in the food supply
of the Allied world.
This word comes from Washington
to the Food Administration at Colum
bia. The statement continues:
"Our harvest was less than esti
mated; needs of the Allies are greater
than were calculated; losses by sea
and by battle have been heavier than
were anticipated; less comes from the
Argentine than had been hoped; tens
er demands on shipping space restrict
ships more than ever to the shortest
haul and the tightest bulk."
Until the next harvest the crisis will
not have been passed. The call is
therefore issued that all who can and
all who will go without wheat-give
up wheat bread entirely--until the
next harvest, as the club wvomen or
South Carolina have pledged them
selves to do; that those wvho do not go
on an entirely wvheatless ration cut
down the consumption of wheat by at
least one-half, and that households
keep within a weekly allowance for
each person of one and one-half
pounds of flour and all other wheat
IN GROCERS' HANDS
Columbia.-Grocers throughout the
State are now being supplied with
blank certificates, upon the signing of
which persons desiring sugar for can
ning and preserving may obtain the
same. The grocers are being supplied
with these certificates by the county
food administrators, who are in turn
supplied by the State administrator.
The certificate system is used to
make sure that home canners may ob
tain sufficient sugar- to preserve per
ishable fruits and at the same time to
place a check upon those who would
endeavor to obtain unreasonable quan
tities for household consumption.
THE IRISH POTATO

In Germany, it is said, potatoes
have been planted even between the
ties of railroad tracks. Potatoes have
kept the people of Germany alive.
Probably Germany would have caved
