Munsey Predicts Price Will Be Raised t?
It Cenls?Improved la Quality.
Frank A. Munsey, who originated
and made successes out of a string of
magazines and is, besides, the publisher
of two successful newspapers, one in
Washington and the other in Boston,
has returned to the Hotel Ritz, says a
Paris cable to the New York Herald,
from a ten days' automobile trip. In
an interview Mr. Munsey discussed the
competition between magazines in the
United States and the Sunday newspa
pers, and predicted that the price of
Sunday newspapers would be raised to
10 cents in the near future.
"The Sunday newspaper of the fu
ture," he said, "a great big Sunday
newspaper, should be made so good?
and doubtless will bo made so good ?
that it will sell at 10 cents instead of 5
Mr. Munsey was asked whether the
Sunday newspapers, with their stories,
illustrations and pictures, like the
"Fluffy Ruffles" Bcries, were hurting
"It is not only difflcultbut impossible
to say whether the magazine has suf
fered by reason of the Sunday paper,''
said Mr. Munsey. "That the maga
zine has not suffered a setback in circu
lation on this account is certain, for the
reason that the combined circulation of
magazines is constantly on the in
"Little more than a dozen years ago,
when I went into the magazine bus
iness, there were not more than 250,000
regular magazine buyers in the United
States and Canada. That docs not
mean that there were not more than
250,000 magazines issued, for many
buyers took several magazines. Today
there are easily 2,000,000 magazine buy
el's in the two countries.
"Each of these individual buyers
takes many more magazines than did
the buyers of the other period. Why?
Mainly for the reason that magazines
"Do you believe the circulation of
the Sunday issues of some of the great
metropolitan dailies has suffered dur
ing the last few years by reason of the
fact that many daily papers in small
town publish their own Sunday maga
zines and colored supplements?"
"I do not suppose the total circula
tion of the Sunday issues of metropoli
tan dailies has shrunk for the reason
you name, he replied. "Nevertheless,
it is impossible to say how much the re
J spective circulations of great newspa
pers would have gained if country
newspapers had not gone into the mag
azine features for their Sunday issues.
"We have just about reached a point
when much better Sunday papers must
be made than those now generally is
sued. Except for technical improve
ments, there has been little or no ad
vancement in the Sunday papers for
the last ten years. Almost no new
ideas have been developed.
"In my judgment the publisher who
will lead olT in giving 10 cents worth
will make a hit in Sunday journalism.
Our people are never content with what
is. They want more and more all the
while. The present Sunday paper has
prepared the way for a far better pub
lication that measures up to the stand
ard of first class magazine work or,
more properly speaking, standard first
rate weekly publication work.
"Improvement must come in the way
of quality, not of quantity. The latter
may be decreased with satisfaction and
increased in tbo other. In discussing
this point I am perhaps working against
my own interests, as my business is
chiefly that of magazine publishing.
However, I am not disposed to worry
about the inevitable.
"Betterment of our Sunday papers is
inevitable. Higher standards of our
publications, whether dailies, Sundays,
weeklies, monthlies, would be better
for the people. This last interests me
more than whether I shall make a few
dollars more or less. But, as a matter
of fact, the magazine will square itself
to whatever conditions may come up
and will meet the issue successfully.

dozen years has recorded an emphatic
improvement" in standai'd magazines.
Other improvements will go on, must
go on, so long as the people demand
better things." ?Americus Tress
The "Williamson Plan."
The News and Courier reproduces
that part of the Princeton letter pub
lished in The Advertiser last week
referring to Capt. J. B. Humbert's test
of corn growing according to the "Wil
liamson plan" and editorialized thus on
"Capt. Humbert, a former president
of the State Agricultual Society, is a
man of unusual intelligence and capable
of giving the plan the sort of trial that
will demonstrate its value. One thing
is certain- Mr. Williamson's method
has stirred such an activity in corn rais
ing as has not been seen in South Caro
lina for many years, and this is bound
to bring about permanent and substan
tial improvements. Possibly his method
v/ill be modified and perfected, differ
ent soils will call for slightly different
treatment perhaps, and climatic condi
tions arc not precisely uniform
throughout the State, but he has made
a large contribution to the agricultural
knowledge of the farmers, and it may
bo set down that hereafter the corn
crop of South Carolina will be material
ly greater, directly on account of his
experiments and his generous efforts to
give his fellow farmers the full benefit
Cutting Beth Ways.
A Company promoter who advertised
for an offlce boy received a hundred re
plies. Out of the hundred he selected
ten, who were asked to call at the office
for a personal interview. His final
choice fell upon a bright looking youth.
"My boy," said the promoter, "I like
your appearance and your manner very
much. I think you may do for the
place. Did you bring a character?"
"No, sir," replied the boy. "I can go
home and get it."
"Very well. Come back tomorrow
morning with it, and if it is satisfactory
I dare say I shall engage you."
Late that same afternoon the finan

JAMES STONE AND WIFE.
BY W. D. 8.
They resided on the Saluda aide of
Sullivan's township, in a retired place
half a mile off the Augusta public road.
They had faith in the honesty of the
human race -had no locks on dwelling,
corn crib nor smoke house. They built
a shed to the rear of the house with a
dirt floor, on which stood some large
sugar hogsheads, in which the good wife
placed the children when she went to
the field to assist her husband with the
crop (as was the custom in those days).
The children were safe from fire, dogs
and getting hurt or lost, and Mrs.
Stone was safe from anxiety for their
protection from all outside harm. In
those days farmers carried their tan
bark and beef hides to Kirkpatriek
& Kennedy's tanynrd and exchanged
for leather. When the itinerant shoe
maker came around it was cut into
shoes for the family. One pair was al
lotted to each member of the family,
and had to do him through the winter.
Around old Rocky Mount church were
plenty of flint rocks, which were inju
rious to shoes. Mr. Stone was a church
going man, and carried his family with
him to Harmony on Sunday. It was
the custom to walk down to the white
sand road and then put on socks and
shoes and go into the church. A mer
ciful man is kind to his dumb brutes;
his work stock was left at home to rest
on the Sabbath day. The Stone fam
ily traded with me after the Confeder
ate war?husband, wife, sons and
daughters, each ran his own separate
account. Each one had his own indi
vidual crop. Ono fall uncle Jimmic
called in to settle his store account.
After attending to it I thought that I
would try him about his wife's account.
"Aunt Sallie has an account and you
had better settle it while here; it will
save her a long trip." "No, sir; I
can't do it. Sallie-will attend to her
own business. Everybody at my house
docs their own trading and paying."
This was very commendable. It taught
his children industrious habits and how
to transact business. It would be well
now for our farmers to teach their chil
dren how to make a dollar, and then
they would know how to take care of it.
It is a true saying that "it is not what
you make so much as what you spend
that will make you prosperous in this
world." Let your children do their own
buying and paying, and don't make ba
bies of them until they are grown.
CORTFXYOU TO THE RESCUE.
Government Funds Will Again Aid in the
New York, August 20.? Secretary of
the Treasury Cortelyou, according to
the Times, has decided again to come
to the relief of the money market and
will distribute Government funds to aid
in the movement of the crops this year.
The plan pursued last year is to be
followed with some modifications, but
in general it will be that adopted bv
Secretary Shaw in his regime.
One .)f the ideas now in the minds of
the officers in the treasury department
is that the Government should place its
funds in the banks subject to with
drawal by check.
It Is not expected that anything like
the amount needed last year will be
called for this season. It is said that
the Secretary of the Treasury will be
in better shape to meet the call, as un
der an Act of last Congress custom re
ceipts may be deposited in the banks.
Under the new method the customs re
ceipts will be used for the relief of the
smaller institutions, while the larger
fund will be sent to the centres of dis
tribution. New York will, as in the
past, get a goodly share of the amount
to be released.
Washington, August 20- If Secretary
Cortelyou decides to make any an
nouncement of a policy for the relief
of the money stringency it will be made
from his summer home, on Long Isand,
and not through the treasury depart
ment according to the opinion prevail
ing among treasury officials. It will be
made also without the preliminaries of
a conference with the president or
other Cabinet officers. The present
Secretary of the Treasury has never
felt the necessity of consulting the
other members of the Cabinet about
matter that belong entirely to his own
If he makes an announcement it is
believed here he will not go further
than to give assurances of his intention
to extend the usual relief to the East
to counteract the movement of money
to the West for crop removal uses.
This relief will be the increasing of
Government deposits in Eastern banks.
Secretary Cartclyou might, if he saw
the necessity for it, increase the depos
its $27,000,000 and still have a working
balance in the treasury of $50,000,000.
He could call in the $10,000,000 worth
of 4 per cents which were due July 1.
Farmer Brings Two Whose Combined
Weight is 159 Pounds,
Mr. Luther M. Fellers brought in on
Friday some of the finest melons ever
grovni in this part of the world. The
two largest were bought by ('apt. W.
S. Langford, who wanted them for
some friends at a distance -just to
show them what Ncwberry can do.
One of these melons weighed HH pounds,
the other 71. They were the "Florida
Triumph," a fine variety of melon that
Mr. Fellers has raised before.
Mr. Fellers raises several varieties,
including the Bradford and the Crisp,
and he keeps each variety separate
and pure. ? Newberry Observer.
Handsome Offer for New School.
Mr. W. L. Gray has offered to the
trustees of the city schools fivea eres of
land and a cash subscription, to locate
the proposed new school building on
his property. This is a very hand
some offer and it might pay the city to
accept it. From a purely selfish motive
we can not say that we favor it but
from a business point of view, it may
be a wise thing to do.
The city is certain to broaden out in
that direction and in the near future
the population on that side will he suffi
cient to fill a large school house wi.h
SORGHUM NOT POISONOUS.
Can be Fed Safely if Properly Mixed With
Other Fond Stuff.
The idea that sorghum cane contains
poison that will kill cattle was exploded
years ago. It is not more poisonous
than green corn, wheat, oats or barley.
It can lie fed to cattle safely, in all
stages of its growth, provided it is cut
up and mixed with other food stuff,
which is a common practice on many
cattle farms, writes Captain W. H.
The cow when hungry gajthers food
in large mouthfuls, and swallows it
I without mastication, with the intention
of belching it up and chewing it at her
leisure. But unfortunately for her,
1 she cannot manipulate sorghum this
way in accordance with her habits. It
has a very slick leaf, and in her haste
to swallow the leaves as fast as she
can bito them off, they hang in her
throat and she died of sufTocation. If
the cow would masticate the leaves as
she bites them off, as the horso does,
sorghum would not hurt her and a mod
erate amount of it would be good for
her. A gorge of any kind of green
feed by a hungry animal is dangerous
and likely to kill by rapid fermentation.
But that is not why quick death results
to cows from eating sorghum cane.
Captain O. A. Wylie related to me an
incident that occurred at his father's
home soon after the late war. A Con
federate soldier by the name of Smith
was sojouring in the home and by the
way, he was a good soldier, a good
man and a good Methodist preacher,
and afterwards married a sister of
Captain Wylie. One day they were sit
ting on the porch, when a negro came
and told them that the cows were in
the cane patch and a lot of them were
dying Smith said to Wylie: "Let us
go quick; we may he able to save some
of them." As they ran through the
woods Smith cut a smooth green stick
three teet long. My recollection is
that Captain Wylie said there were
seven cows down. Ho had one pocket
handkerchief and Smith ha .1 two, Cap
tain Wylie held up the cow's head and
Smith would push the handkerchief
down her throat into her stomach.
They used the three handkerchiefs,
and with a piece of shirt saved another.
By that time the rest of them were
dead. Captain Wylie said they could
have saved every one of them. The
handkerchief operation gave them im
mediate relief. They were simply
choking to death, dying by suffocation.
Smith was an older man than Captain
Wylie and had some knowledge and ex
perience in the matter and knew what
to do. 1 think he was from Tennessee,
but I am not sure, after the lapse of
forty years, what state be hailed from,
lie did some good preaching in a meet
ing at El-Bethel Methodist church, and
the surviving Confederate soldiers of
that community spent many pleasant
hours with him.
I served on the hoard of visitors of
Clemson college in 1894-?)!). 1 was
there in June, 1891, and found them
feeding the milk cows on sorghum cane
that was from thigh to bench high.
They ran it through a cutting machine,
threw it into the feed box and put on
top of it some cotton seed meal mixed
with skipped-stuff. They told me that
they fed it in all stages of its growth
ami never before knew it to hurt a

Work on Pamama Canal has Progressed
Faster than Expected.
Washington, Aue;. 19.?Conditions on
the Panama canal have reached a state
of gravity owing to the fact Unit con
struction work is developing faster
than was contemplated when the esti
mates for expenditures during the fiscal
year, 1908, were made nearly a year
ago. The estimate is made that about
$8,000,000 in excess of the appropria
tions could bo used to advantage in
pushing forward the work during the
present year, and Col. (Joethals, the
engineer in charge, thinks it would be
in the interest of true economy to pro
ceed along this basis and ask congress
at its next sessions to make good the
deficiency as the argument is made
that with the present organization and
progress the waterway can be com
pleted more rapidly than by restrain
ing expenditures within the appropria
tions now available. Reports show that
the monthly estimated expenditure for
labor is being considerably exceeded
and work at the Gatun dam has prog
ressed faster than was anticipated.
