A BEAUTIFUL FARM.
A Rock Hill correspondent of the
News and Courier gives a glowing de
scription of the Winthrop College farm,
which, he says, contains 145 acres ly
ing within a mile of the College. Land
within that distance of Roek Hill is
worth a good deal of money, $10,000 we
suppose is about what it would bring.
We take the following from the de
"A well graded road leads from the
city to the farm, and just where the
avenue from this road turns in a com
fortable cottage for the foreman is
f)laced. On one side of the avenue
ending to the big farm is a large field
of oats and turnips, while on the other
side are the orchards, the strawberry
field and alfalfa.
"The big barn, 40 by 90 feet, for the
milch cows, is the first place of inter
est. It is built after tho latest ap
proved plans, and is a model of utility
and cleanliness. At the time the cor
respondent of The News and Courier
passed through the herd of fifty-five
cows was being milked by the skillful
attendants. The majority of the herd
are of mixed breed, chosen for their
good milking qualities, but in one corner
was a row of eight or ten thoroughbred
Jerseys. In the rear of this barn are
two silos of 88 tons capacity each,
where the winter's supply of food is
canned. In addition to the milch cows
fifteen or twenty head of steel's are
kept in stalls and fed for slaughtering.
"In addition to these there are on the
farm 75 head of swine of the red Jer
sey, Berkshire and Essex breeds. The
barn, 65 by 75 feet, for the brocders is
an interesting affair. After passing the
feed rooms at the entrance the whole
floor is cement, sloping away from the
middle passage so as to be drained
thoroughly dry at all times.
"Another interesting department of
the farm is the dairy, which is presided
over by Mr. Ernest Fewell. This is of
one story and basement height. The
latter, in which is a very cold spring of
fine water, is cemented all over. Here
is where the churning is done, by a
35-gallon barrel churn, the butter
worked by a hand machine and then
stamped into beautiful squares with
'W. N. and I. C in bold relief.
"In front of the barn is the straw
berry patch of one acre. This is reset
every fourth year. The second year
about 2,000 quarts are furnished during
the season. On the first and third
years the yield is somewhat smaller.
"The orchard of eight acres is about
equally divided in apples, pears and
peaches. Not all of these are in bear
ing at once, but the orchard is kept up
to that size by replantation. The or
chard products are not furnished to the
College in fresh fruit, but canned. Last
season there were 267 gallons of syrup
peaches prepared in the small cannery
close by the dairy.
"In addition to the products men
tioned the farm furnished Winthrop
last year with 56,852 pounds of beef and
8.319 pounds of pork. There are other
things to be seen upon this up-to-date,
thoroughly conducted farm, but these
are some "of the most interesting to the
And also this:
"The ordinary market in a small town
is very uncertain, and it would be im
possible to run properlv the boarding
department of a great institution like
Winthrop Normal and Industrial Col
lege without resources independent of
this. Realizing this some years ago,
President Johnson and the trustees of
Winthrop bought a small farm of 115
acres within less than a mile, and lying
directly in front of the College.
"Under the wise administration of
Prof. Buist and the intelligent execu
tion of Mr. John R. Pong, the foreman,
this has proven an unfailing source of
supply for vegetables, fruit, milk, but
ter and meat, furnishing to the institu
tion first-class, fresh, pure and whole
We marvel how Converse and Chicora
and Lander and the Greenville Female
College and the Oue West Female Col
lege and the two female colleges in Co
lumbia have survived all these years
without farms of at least 145 acres at
tached. We have no doubt such a farm
as this at Winthrop would help mightily
to pay the expenses of any college, and
keep the table supplied with strawber
ries at this time of the year besides.
Nothing is too good or good enough
for the girls is our notion. The friends
of the other colleges should begin to
raise funds to buy farms at once. Why
throw away donations on libraries and
chemical laboratories and gymnasiums
when colleges for girls have no great
pigs and monstrous steers and "rows
of eight or ten thoroughbred Jerseys?
In our opinion a man can be hired to
superintend a girl's college farm at a
salary of about $1,200 the year, and a
foreman can be had for oven less than
that. Of course the superintendent
should he provided by the college with
a house to live in, and we would have
little respect for a college that did not
provide comfortable homes for its em
It Is surely astonishing though that
In the face of the fact that a farm in
connection with a girls' college is such
a paying institution any of the colleges
for girls are without them.
A CONSPIRACY IN DETROIT.
One of the saddest stories that has
Come to us in a long time hails from
Detroit which is somewhere close to
Canada, though probably situated in the
United States, and it is to the effect
that the railroads have determined to
have Senator Tillman defeated for the
United States Senate. It reads power
fully like the truth. The railroads have
always been terribly down on the Sena
tor. Everybody remembers how they
have beguiled him to ride free on their
trains nil over this country, from Ore
gon to Texas to Maine to Michigan and
back again and again 80 that they
might have a chance to hurt him in a
wreck. There Is no other reason on
the face of the earth why theso wicked
corporations should have stuffed his
pockets with railroad passes.
Besides, it is natural that the rail
ways should wish to defeat the senator
because the senator has been so hard
on them. Why, is he not in charge of
the Railway Rate Legislation bill and
that by tho grace of Senator Nelson Al
drich, of Rhode Island, whose son mar
ried the daughter of John D. Rockefel
ler and who owns a bunch or part of a
bunch of railroads himself? Aldrich
turned the bill over to him to spite
Roosevelt, so they said. Yes, so they
Moreover, if a conspiracy should be
formed by tho railroads to defeat Sena
tor Tillman the news of it would nat
urally leak out in Detroit. Why, when
the railroads combine to defeat that
friend of tho people, Senator LaFollctte
who lives in tho neighborhood of De
troit, doesn't the news leak out in Co
lumbia first? You know that, intelli
gent reader. You can slip up to Green
ville any day and surprise the railroads
hatching schemes to beat Senator New
lands of Nevada.
If this Detroit scheme succeeds and
is worked fair and square and they
don't take any underholt on Old Ben,
the Advertiser will be pleased, be
cause The Advertiser is against him,
and moreover, The Advektisek will he
so pleased that it will probably invite
all the railway men to meet us at some
quiet spot where we shall be free from
interference and within 100 yards of a
Dispensary between sunrise and sunset.
We wonder where one of our esteemed
contemporaries picked up the notion
that the "Biennial Appeal" editorial
printed last week was antagonistic to
the gentlemen, one or all, now in the
general assembly from this county. We
always hesitate to pronounce eulogies
on the living and so we did not mention
them along with the great men of
former generations but we challenge
anybody to discover a line or a syllable
in that strictly moral "grind" hinting
or insinuating that our present Solons j
are not quite as great as any set of
Solons that the sun ever shone on.
Here and now wc wish to record our
selves as having an uncommonly high
opinion of these gentlemen, as indeed,
we have of all gentlemen, especially
gentlemen of our own county who arc
sent to the legislature, and we can't
guess why anybody dreamed that we
were chunking at them. Surely, surely
the notion has not originated in the
mind of a contemporary that our legis
lators are not so groat and that so
thinking itself, it unconsciously attri
buted the saying to us? We hereby set
ourselves up as the champions of our
legislators against critics. We have an
excellent set of legislators.
A NEGRO COSVICT
BACK ON THE GANG
John Blakely, Who Escaped From the
Laurens County Chaingang, Recap
tured in Columbia.
The publication in The State a f jw
days ago of the arrest by tho Columbia
police of a negro who gave his name as
"John Blake" from Fountain Inn, Lau
rens county, resulted in placing a con
vict back on the Laurens county chain
gang from which Blakely, alias Blake,
escaped two months ago. Deputy Sher
iff A. R. Sullivan had reasons to believe
that the fellow was the escape wanted
and after communicating with Chief
Daly, Deputy Sullivan arranged with
Chief of Police W. S. Bagwell, who
knew John Blakely to go down and
bring the prisoner back to Laurens if
he proved to be the man wanted. Chief
Bagwell returned with Blakely Wed
nesday night and he was sent back to
the gang Thursday.
If the Columbia police bad m&de closer
examination the fact that Blakely was
an escape from some chaingang would
have been revealed for he was still
wearing the shackle that he carried
away from Laurens in February. This
discovery was made by Chief Bagwell
between Columbia and Laurens.
Blakely was convicted of larceny at
the January term of court last year and
sent to the county chaingang for 27
months. He had stolen a tine bicycle
from Dr. T. W. L. Bailey of Clinton in
the fall of 1904. Bicycles seem to be
Blakely's hobby but be does not ride
much until he is run in. Offering to
sell a wheel at a price that gave rise to
suspicion caused his arrest in Columbia.
As a convict he was one of the
"trusties," which fact probably ac
counted for his escape from the gang.
