THERE IS ALREADY
ACCORDING TO E. W. DABBS NO
SURPLUS OF COTTON CAN
OISPATCHES FROM COLUMDIA
Doings and Happenings That Mark
the Progress of South Carolina Peo
pie, Gathered Around the State
In the Manufacturers Record of Au
gust 8 Senator Smith has some start
ling figures as to the supply of cotton.
Condensed they are as follows: In
the past three years 33,931,000 bale.s
of American cotton were produced
and 41,14p,000 bales including linters
wore consumed. Or 7,209,000 bales
more than we grew. Theso figures are
from department of agriculture and
bureau of census. So that instead of
there being a surplus to add weight
to this crop there is a shortage of
7,209,000 bales that has been drawn
from the surplus of 1914 probably wip
ing it out. If not we can surely con
pel its complete absorption by retiring
every third bale as suggested by Mr.
Bowman at the meeting in Columbia
-on June 24, which plan is being work
ed out in some of the cotton States.
I know the tobacco sections can do
this and loan enough money to the
farmers who do not grow tobacco to
hold- their cotton without the aid of
the federal reserve banks.
In Georgia there is an active cam
paign probably completed by now to
hold off for the war one-third of this
Are we willing to sell all of our cot
ton for less than what two-thirds of
-it will sell for? No. Then put aside
the third bale and only borrow on or
sell the other two-thirds.

Home for Feebleminded.
The home for the Feebleminded
-will be built at Clinton. This was de
cided, when a committee from the
board of regents of State Hospital and
of the State Board of Charities and
Corriections met at Clin-ton and passeds
upon a proposition which had been
made by the citizens of Clinton. It
had been decided previously that
State lands were not suitable to the
purpose, and a site near Clinton was
examined with the result that it was
accepted; and soon as possible build
in'g will be commenced.
The site selected is at Dover, two
miles east of Clinton, where the S. A.
L. and C. N. and L. railway tracks
cross. There are 620 acres in the
tract acquired by the board, and op
tions have been secured on 570 acres
more, which will probably be bought,
thus putting at the disposition of the
board about 1,200 acres. '

prescribed S. A. T. C. course. Those
18 years old or over willl be expected

The government will furnish the en.
