The Charleston News and Courier
looks well a/tex?1 every material lnter
reat ra the State. With commendable
enterprise that paper publishes a re
port from its special correspondents on
Wednesday last, from almost every
county in the State touching the proba
ble acreage in cotton for this year.?
Summing up, its conclusions are, that
? the reduction in acreage will not be
large, while the falling off in the use
? pf fertilizers will be great. This is not
encouraging. It simply means no large
increase in food oropsand a diminished
crop of cotton. Thin is not the desid
eratum. What we want in South
Carolina is not so much a reduction of
the cotton crop as an inorease of the
food crops?for man and beast. We
must buy less, it is conceded that, we
' here in South Carolina, aro proemen
ontly an agricultural people. Wo may
be unable to compel the outside world
to give us big prices for our produota,
but one thing is oertaln; we can pro
r- duce our bread and meat/and thus be
come entirely independent, and snap
our fingers at the foreigner. It is all
very beautiful to produce cotton at ten
cents per pound, and have broad acres,
and fill our pockets with silver and
greenbacks, bat when the crop goes up
to ten million bales, then down goes
the price to five cents. We are aware
fthat a large per oentof tho farmers are
poor people; many of them tenants
and making their orops upon credit ob
tained from the merchants and banks
upon a basis of cotton planted; theso,
per force, must largely plant cotton to
obtain credit. But there are thousands
of farmers in Laurens county out of
BKe"o*tvuhd ?fttdopondent. * Ol_ four_ihou
eand farmers intEe "county half of
them are independent of bankers and
merchants and masters of themselves
and conditions. They should be more
so. Let their food orops be doubly in
creased in the future. Now is the time.
Seize the day. A market will be found
at homo. If not at home create one at
home. At the present it is humiliating
to have to depend upon India, China,
Japan and South America for a mar
ket. When our own cotton is spun
here and made ready into fashionable
out gowns; when cattle, sheep and
goats are grown here, their flesh con
sumed here and their skins tanned and
converted here, population will be at
tracted, towns and country will teem
with hundreds of thousands of people
and tho cry of poverty and hard times
will cease. Raise your own bread and
meat. As wo have said, thousands of
well-to-do can do so. It will make them
a hundred fold richer and more inde
pendent. A wise man has said; "neither
lender nor a borrower be;'1 the inspired
book reads: "owe no man anything."?
Raise more corn and mea W n you
need and all the cotton you can. Set
your house In order not to die but to
live. Let the other fellow plant from
Dan to Beersheba in cotton but do
you have fat cribs and smoke houses.
Governor Evans disported last week
among the barbarians of Georgia. He
. visited Atlanta, taking notes of the
prospect for the Groat Exposition this
fall. He was looking out for wide
space for the groat display our Stato is
to make. Governor Evans was enter
tained by tho Gridiron Club, or some
thing of that sort. It Is encouraging to
have our great men oiroulating around
and innoculating the country with
wholesome and healthy views of social
and political policies. How charming
to. contemplate a "chemically pure"
political atmosphere in Georgia and
surrounding bailiwicks in the near fu
ture! And to trace the reform to Our
own benign influence over the heath
Judge Earle warns Kohn, Reporter
of the News and Courier, to be careful
in his reports of the pearls that drop
from the lips of the anointed in this
State. One needs to be wary in the
presence of a little brief authority or
brief little authority clothed in the
panoply of loyalty and especially latter
Governor Evans was In Atlanta and,
as the accounts go, he was cheek by
jowl with Democrats, republicans, pop
ulists and political cranks of every
color and denomination. Under such
surroundings no wonder our Governor
Indulged his slippers.

Harris Lithia Water.
The most remarkable Water on the Market to-day which is
Shown by its Analysis and Testimonials of the Most
Noted Physicians of the Country.
Read what a prominent merchant of Columbia, S. C, has to say for
Harris Lithia Water;
?'I had 4ong been affected with kidney troubles. I had tried all the
mineral waters from Saratoga to Porter Springs. I had tried the
Western waters and all others that I could hear of, and I have no hesi
tancy in saying that none have benefited me even approximately as
much as the Harris Lithia Water. I was using the Buffalo .Lithia Water
when I heard of this. I do not expect to use the Buffalo Water agnin.
"When I went to Harris Lithia Springs, I had to be assisted out of
my chair. After remaining- two weeks I could get about as'good as
anybody. It acted on me like a charm?quickly and effectively'. This
water is now being largely sold in Columbia, and I think every person
who has tried it will agree with mc in the belief that it is the most re
markable water in the country. From a simple interest in suffering hu
manity, I would like very much to see it given a trial.
C. A. BALDWIN, Columbia, S. C.
Harris Lithia Water Co., Harris Springs, S. C.
Asiieville, N. C, September, 9, 1893.
Mr. J. T. Harris:
We have been selling the Harris Lithia Water for some time, and
find it a ready seller; those who have tried it arc loud in its praise. The
doctors here regard it superior to either the Buffalo or Londonderry
Waters. We predict for it a wonderful sale when the merits become
more gener, ily known.
\ c urs very truly, RAYSOR & SMITH,
Prosi'Eritv, S. C. Feb. 28, 1894.
Mr. J. T.Harris:
I have been under the treatment of several physicians, and been to
different watering places during the last ten years for kidney disease. It
affords me pleasure to say that I have received more benefit from the
use of Han is Lithia Water than all remedies combined.
