LET LAURENS WIN.
Prize is Offered for Best Crops of Alfalfa
from Five Acres and from One Acre.
The following should be of interest
to Laurens farmers:
The Agricultural Society of South
Carolina has decided to offer a prize of
one hundred dollars for the best return
of sound, dry alfalfa hay on five acres,
and fifty dollars for the best on one
acre, cut and cured during the year
As the early fall is the best season
for planting alfalfa in the South, (about
the last of September) and as the land
requires thorough preparation before
planting, as well as high fertilization,
the best means to accomplish this is to
sow the iand with cow peas with heavy
application of fertilizers, which should
bo done at this time.
All persons who desire to enter this
competition should send their names
and addresses to Mr. J. Bachman Chi
solm, 26 Broad street, Charleston, Sec
retory of the Agricultural Society of
South Carolina, who jwill. furnish the
address of the seedmen from .whom
seed can be obtained, and also "Farm
ers' Bulletins No. 31 or 215," of the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, which gives full directions for the
cultivation and saving of alfalfa. It
should be noted that though alfalfa is
delicate, and needs care during the
first year, that once established on the
land, it will continue to give heavy crops
for many years without replanting.
The Secretary of the Agricultural
Society will be pleased to furnish all
details in connection with these prem
iums and the awarding of same. Thoso
who desire to compete must give their
address, stating if they desire to enter
for the fivo or ono acre competition. ?
The premiums are offered only for new
crops to be planted in the fall of 1905.

Yellow Fever "Foci."
People hereabout, where mosquitos
are unknown and yellow fever is out of
the question, have been puzzled over
the word "foci" that has been appear
ing with so much regularity in the
newspaper dispatches from New Or
leans. Some ludicrous suggestions
have been made, and among them that
it might be a new name for the germ.
Reduced to its simplest moaning tho
word foci stands for a new case of yel
low fever in a new district. The term
is not warped from the original mean
ing because the Latin plural is used
and it would be just the same if the
learned doctors would say "focuses"
instead of "foci."
As long as the new cases are con
fined to the same district and are evi
dently resulting from a common-focus,
there are no foci, but the moment a
case appears in a district where tho
fever was unknown up to that time,
the reports instantly records a "foci."
The meaning of tho word has been
stretched slightly, possibly, but it
serves the medical experts well, for it
expresses exactly what they mean that
it should?a nowplacoof infection from
which many other cases are likely to
J. C. Keys, who recently returned
from Panama, and who is familiar with
tho fever and its terms, having under
gone an attack himself, is responsible
for the explanation of the word, which
doubtless has the same meaning as is
applied in Panama.?Greenville News.
