VETERAN NOX HUNTER MGORNE
PASSING OP FAVORITE MOUNDS
Central.-R. G. (" t") Gaines, 72
year old resident of Central, is per
haps the leading fox hunter of the
state in the number of chases engaged
in the game bagged and the number
of years on the hunting trails of
Since he was a boy about the
foothills of Pivkens county, Mr. Gaines
has felt a supreme thrill in following
a pack of hounds and each year has
engaged in a number of hunts. This
year, for the first time, Mr. Gaines
has taken but little part in hunting,
although he has ordered a number of
fox from Florida, which he expects
to liberate between now and the
The fact that he is 72 years of
age is not the principal reason that
Mr. Gaines has taken but little part
in fox hunting this fall. He is still
hale and hearty and one would never
take him to be three score and twelve
years of age. It is sentiment more
than any other which prevents the
feeling of enthusiasm on mention of
the chase, aswas formerly the catse.
About a year ago Mr. Gaines and
W. J. Rankin, who resides south of
Central, went on a hunting trip to
the Waterce bottoms of Kershaw
county. The two hunters carried
along a total of ten dogs. It was
such an expedition as had been en
gaged in on a number of other oc
casions and the hopes of each were
raised high. Joined at' Camden by
several other persons, the party left
for the big chase.
While on the Wateree the boat in
which the dogs were being carried
capsi'zed and six of the ten animals
were drowned in the whirling waters
of the Wateree. The dogs would
not have gone down to a watery grave
but for the fact that they were chain.
ed and when the boat capsized the
hunters were unable to rescue more
than four of the ten.
Disheartened by the loss of six
valuable dogs, the hunters continued
into the swamps, where additional
(logs were also secured. While con
tinuing the chase two of the remai'n
ing four dogs belonging to the Cen
tral men went into the swamp in
pursuit of game and never returned.
It was with but two of the ten dogs
as well as heavy hearts-that the two
hunters returned to Central to. tell of
their unfortunate trip.
Mr. Gaines is widely known over
the state and in many other secions
of the south. He has hunted large
game in virtually every county of the
state at one time or another. His
greatest catch, made a number of
years ago in the mountains of Oconee
co.unty, wvas seven fox in five morn
"I still like hunting and the chase
has the same tbirill as ever," he said
~n discussing hunting," but the tun
timely end of m9 (logs has served to
dlampen my enthuisiasm when it
comes to taking more trips to the
lower part of the state."
Mr. Gaines has alwanys kept a paEck
of from eight to a dozen dogs, but
the eight he has now are likely to
receive the bulk of their training on
the red hills of Piecns county un
less their owner undergoes a change
of mind, following the death of his
Jim Robeits, wvh odied in An M'rsor
some time ago, was declared to tbe
the leading fox hunter of the state
upuntil that time. He and Mr.
Gaine5 were intimate friends, having
engaged in a number of hunts to
SENATOR DIAD IS HELPING FAR..
MERS OF SOUTH.
The U. S. Government is now hold
ing about 25,000 short tons of sodium
nitrate which will be sold in a shor't
time in lots of 100 short tons or
more. Senator Dial has addressed a
letter to the Secretary of War which
is as follows:
"It has recently come to my at
tention that you are at an early date
to receive h. the sale of 25
thousand short tons of sodium nitro~te
out of the stock n'ow held by the
Government, located at Old Hickry
Ordance Reserve Depot, Jackson v'iilo,
Tennessee. I notice these sales are
to be In lots of one hundred short
tons or more.
"I have received numeirous ler'ers
from persons in my State, asking if
sofaething cannot be done to .have
thes* stocks sold in smaillep amounuts.
The brotiblo seems to b.4tat 'while
this .matetial is most sotely *oeded
In :te South, the sales are to be

bitant prices for it after it has beet
passed through many different hands,
In other words, an operator' buying
one hundred tons and getting good
title to it would be able to charge
almost anything lie might- wish for
it, and before it reaches the poor
farmer-the man who really needs
it-the price will be too high for him.
"Could you not dvise some method
by which this material already lo
ceted in the South, might be shipped
to certain points, say, Atlanta, Ga.,
Columbia S. C., Jacksonville, Fla.,
and other cental places :n the South,
and there,sold or distributed through
the Governient's representatives?
"This matter appeiTls to me strong.
ly, inasmuch as the farmers in our
State are now facing a most serious
crisis because of the low price of
cotton for some time and the ravages
of the- cotton boll weevil, and I think
everythig should be done to enable
them to make their next crops at the
lowest possible liga're. There is no
better way to do so, in my judgment
sian to place this sodium nitrate in
their hands at a reasonable price, as
Senator Dial is right about this.
If the War Department would listen
to the advise of our senator the
small farmer would be greatly bene..
