HAS BEEN LIFTED
NOW FREE MOVEMENT OF FLOUR
INTO STATE, DEALERS NOT
iCISPAICHES FROM COLUMBIA
Doings and Happenings That Mark
the Progress of South Carolina Peo
pie, Gathered Around the State
The embargo on flour, which has
boen in effect in South Carolina since
May 15, upon order of William Elliott,
food administrator for the state, has
been lifted, effective June 18.
This announcement was made by
the food administration. The lifting
of the embargo means that there may
be free movement of flour into the
state, and dealers may order ship
ments without obtaining permits as
prior to May 15.
During the past month, the ship
ment of flour into South Carolina has
been cut down from 6,436 barrels per
week, the amount of flour shipped into
this state during the week ending
May 4, to 1,174 barrels per week, the
.amount shipped into the state during
the week ending May 25. There has
been, however, free movement of flour
from one point to another within the
borders of the state, and through the
food administration, every section of
the state has been kept supplied. The
embargo has served to cut lown ship
ment from the mills at a critical time
so far as the wheat supply has been
concerned, which was the direct pur
pose of the embargo, and at the same
time there has been a more equal dis
tribution of the flour supply through
out the state.
Taking the figures showing the ship
ment of the flour into the three states
for a six weeks period, beginning
with the week ending April 13, and
ending witn the week ending May 25,
what has been accomplished by the
embargo in South Carolina, as corn
4 pared with North Carolina and Geor
gia for the same period, shows up de
cidedly to the advantage of this state.
The week before the embargo was
declared-the week ending May 11
3,515 barrels of flour were shipped
into South Carolina. During the same
week shipments into North Carolina
were 4,868 barrels, and into Georgia
... 3.085 barrels. As compared with
these figures, shipments into the three
states for the week ending May 25,
shortly after the embargo became ef
fective, were 1,174 barrels for South
Carolina, 4,349 barrels for North Caro
lina, and 2,604 barrels for Georgia.
Limited to Two Pounds Sugar.
Effective June 19. under new sugar
eonservation rules issued by William
Elliott, food administrator for South
Carolina, dlealrs will not b)0 permit
toed to sell sugar for household use in
larger lots than t we pounds to per
sons residling in cities and towns, nor
in larger lots than flye poundls to pe
eons residing in rur-al '(ommunities.
The following order has been issued
by William Elliott:
"Effective June 19, dealers in South
Carolina must observe the following
rules In selling sugar:
"1. Dealers must not sell sugar for
purposes other than canning and pr
serving fruits and vegetables in lets
of more than two pounds to individ
uals who reside in cities, towns or vil
lages, nor more than five pounds to in
dividuals who reside in rural districts,
"2. Dealers must not sell sugar to
any individual for canning and p~re
merving fruits and vegetables in lots
of more than 25 pounds in any one
calendar month unless the individual
secures permission in wr-iting from
the county food adlministrator of the
county in which he lives to purchase
more than 25 pounds per month for
canning or presdrving fruits and v-ego
"3. Dealers must not sell any sugat
to individuals for use in canning and
preserving fruits and vegetables un
less the individuals fill out and sign a

employed in this work, far-reachingi
plans for which are being carefully

Advice to Join Reserve Militia.
The advisability of men within the
draft age joining units of the reserve
militia is pointed out in a statement
issued by officials of the Columbit
company. With the proposed exten
sion of the draft to include men up to
45 years of age, recruiting in the re
serve units should recbive additional
The function of this organization is
to give preliminary training to men
who are expecting to be called into
service. In addition to this, the re
serve regiment in a measure fills the
gap caused by the federalization of
the old National Guard.
Registered men, the statement con
tinued, wwill be fitting themselves for
positions of leadership by taking ad
vantage of the training offered. The
enlistment term is for one year, but
if a member should be called before
that time he is granted an honorable
discharge from the reserve organiza
tion. The statement reads as follows:
"At this time, when the proposition
is being made in Congress to raise
the draft age to 45 years, the attention
of all men wwho come within that age
limit is directed to the advantages
which they would derive when they
are called into service, of having pre
viously been connected with some lo
cal unit of the state regiment of re
serve militia. This regiment has
como into existence recently largely
as a result of the untiring efforts and
unbounded enthusiasm of Col. Henry
T. 'rlompson, who has now, however,
been called into the service
"This organization has performed
and is performing a very useful serv
ice to the government in giving a pre
liminary training to a large number
of men who have already been called
into the service of their country or
who are expecting soon to be called.
Last summer Colonel Thompson or
ganized and drilled through the sum
mer months the Richland battalion,
and in that battalion a large number
of men received their initial military
raining and are now serving, many
of them as officers, with our army in
France. The regiment of reserve mili
tia also fills a very necessary gap
caused by the federalizing of our old
"Individuals who are liable to be
drafted and who wish to prepare them
selves in advance for positions of
leadership will find it greatly to their
advantage to become members of
their local company of the state mili
tia. One of the first questions asked
when you are called into the service is
'Ha've you had any previous military
training?' If the answer is 'yes,' one
is immediately eligible, as a general
rule, for advancement over those who
have had no previous military experi
ennce, and is very apt to be made a
corporal and possibly a sergeant, and
if he makes good in these positions
promotion is apt to follow. The term
of enlistment is for one year, but if a
man should In the m-antime be call
ed into the federal a?-my he at once
receives an honorable discharge
from the local organiz4ation."
Marked Decrease in Farm Loans.
A Washington dispatch, dated June
18, stated that government farm loans
decreased materially in May, amount
ing to $9.530,000 to 4 300 farmers, as
compared wIth past monthly aver-agos
of about $12,000.000. When asked yes
terdlay to explain th9 reason of the~
slump. D. A. Houston, president of tlre
Columbia farm loan bank, said that
tthere were several contributing fac
Tn the first place, Mr. Houston said,
May, June and July are dull r~xonths
in all lines of busiess. Blefor-e this
time of the year- rearly all farmers
have arranged their financial affairs
and are now busily engagsed with
their crops. Unless the call was very
urgent, he said, a farmer would not
feel disposed to stop hIs agricultural
operations in order to hoip organize
a farm loan association through which
to obtain monecy. The time required
to secure final action on applications
for loans, too, would render the bank'.s
aid in this emergen-y impossible.
Tn considering this decrease, it
should he noted, however, that the
Washington report alludes to the en
tire farm hank system. The Columbia
branch has done more than its share
of the past month's business. Shortly
after the opening of the loan banks
throughout the country the Columbia
hank ranked ninth among the 12. The
report fer the month of May assigns
the local biranch to third place with a
business volume of $916,905,
Schools in Tractor Work.
W. W. Long, director of the exten
sion division of Clemson college, has
arr-angedl to hold two tractor schools
in the state next month, One will
open in Orangeburg, July 24, and the
other in Greenwood, July 21. The
schools are to continue three days
each and 12 or 14 tractors are to be
assembled at each place for demon
strationis. Plan Is to a'-quaint farmers
with the adaptability of tractors to
farm work and plots of land have been
procured for dlemonstration purposes.
Cultivators will also be demonstrated.

Sumter.-E. I. Reardon, of Sumter
Council of National Defense, has re
cently addressed a letter to all mu
nicipal commercial bodies in the state
in regard to government co-operation
in the marketing of surpiLs corn, oats
and food and food stuffs.
This action was taken upon the sug
gestion of H. J. McLaurin of Sumter
who informed the Sumter council,
that in complying with the govern
I munt's expressed desire that large
cereal crops should be raised, the
farmers of Sumter county had pro
duced a surplus crop of over 100,000
bushels of corn and oats for which
they could find no market.
Mr. McLaurin says that a few days
ago he had four car loads of threshed
oats put up in standard bags and
ready for immediate shipment. At the
same titme he had four carloads of
baled oat hay which was ready for
the market. Inquiries addressed to
the three cantonments in this State,
one in Georgia and to the chiefs of the
forage departments at Kansas City
and St. Louis brought the response
that these buyers were "not in the
market at this time."
Mr. Reardon requests in t:e letter
which is being sent out to all cham
bers of commerce and boards of trade
in the state that the bodies addressed
co-operate with the Sumter Chamber
of Commerce andl Mr. McLaurin in
endeavoring to induce the quartermas
ter general to have the military can
tonments in this state purchase corn,
oats and other foliage from the farm
ers of South Carolina. The South
Carolina national legislators are also
being asked to use their influence to
promote the plan. Mr. McLaurin's let
ter to the Sumter council says in
"I have today four carloads of
threshed oats, put up in standard bags
and ready for immediate shipment;
also four car loads of baled straw. I
have already written to each of the
three camps in the state ad to the

that they are not in the market at

GREAT PROBLEM IN LABON
Economic Distribution of Labor a
Question of Greater impor
tance Than Realized.
Columbla.-One of the greatest
problems of the war, as the public un
doubtedly understands, is the eco
nomic distribution of labor. It is a
question of much vaster importance,
however, than is generally realized.

caused by loss of man power and the
resultant efforts of employers to re
cruit labor for their industries( the

The plan or organization provides
for a division of the country into 13
districts, each of which is under the
direct supervision of a district super
intendent, whose duties, stated briefly
and concisely, are to see that all in
dustries in his district engaged in es
sential war work are supplied with a
working force of sufficient size to
maintain an efficient standard of pro
duction, even to the extent of with
drawing labor from non-essentials. If
a district has a surplus of labor, this
surplus may then be moved systemat
ically to another district where a
known shortage exists. After all em
ployers will be required to apply to
the federal service for all labor need
Sed. By this systematized distribution
of labor through a federal agency, the
turnover of labor will be minbnized
to a marked degree.

I. How Lydia Began the Christian
Life (vv. 13-15).
Lydia was the first convert to
Christ in Europe. Hers was a typical
conversion. Note the steps therein:
1. Attendance at the place of pray
er (v. 13).
The aceustomed place here was at
the river side. The 'ccustomied place
today is in church. God can and does
save nen and women without any
seeming connection with places of es
tablished worship, but he appears to
most people at such places. The very
fact that he has established and sus
tains churches here and there is an
urgent call to all men and wornen to
place themselves in the way of salva
tion. While no one can save hinself,
yet all can put theruselves in the way
of salvation by attending church, read
ing the Bible, etc.
2. Listening to the preaching of the
Word of God (vv. 13, 14).
Paul took advantage of the oppor
tuity which was given hin by the
assemblage of this group of devoted
womnIIi to preach Christ to them. Ho
was alert for and prized highly the op
portunity to tel' the people about
Christ. le knew also how perllor.s
it was to neglect to witness for Christ
at a time when unsaved people are
together. The opportunity is God's
call to preach Christ.
3. Hcr heart was opened b3 the
Lord (v. 14).
The individual may place himself
in the way of salvation by coming
near to the means of grace, and the
Preacher may prer-ch the Word of God,
but there is no hope of salvation until
the heart is opened by the Lord (John
6:44, 15). While the salvation of
every one is dependent upon this sov
ereign act of the Lord, yet we can be
sure that he Is willing at all times to
do this for those who, like Lydia,
place themselves in the way of his
4. She was baptized. (v. 15).
*This ordinance follows belief in
Chirst. The invariable rule in the
early church was for believers to be
baptized. While there is no salvation
in the water of haptisni, yet hearty
obedience should be rendered in this
respect (Acts 2:38-41; 8:12; Mark 16:
16). Lydia brought lher household to
Christ. Th'is is- as it should he. She
showed signs of the nlew~ life, in that
she' (exlressed' grgti Itudel toward' those
w~ho had bleenl Instriuniienital in her coan
