BIG SYMPOSIUM ON
PELLAGRA FAIR WEEK
National Conference for the Purpose
of Discussing: Nr? Disease to be
Heid in Columbia.
Columbia. Sept. 4?A bit? symposium
on pellagra, attended not only by
leadiug physicians from this and
neighboring states but by those who
have become interested In the subject
in all parts of the country, will be
one of the features of state fair week,
the first of November. In other
words a national symposium on the
The first conference was a state
affair held last fair week, the dlseaso
having first been brought to the at
tention of the country through the
Investigations here and abroad by
Dr. Babcock, superintendent of the
State Hospital for the Insane. Since
then, however, great interest has been
manifested throughout the country
in the disease, which has every ap
pearance of spreading not only in the
South but In other parts of the coun
try, it was recently decided to make
the conference here a national sym
posium. This has been decided upou
on account of the constantly in, reus
ing UUtubers. Of letters received here
from various parts of the country,
written by physicians and others ask
1 ins for all available literature on the
dis >ase. It has been decided to hnv.
, a bis experience, fteelfAg hero fall
! week, at which physicians from till
parts of the country will b>* given
an opportunity to question and listen
to those who have made a close study
of the disease.
A curious and alarming feature of
the disease so far as this section is
concerned is the tendency it is show
in? to spread to prominent families
In virulent form. A number of such
cases have been brought up to the at
tention of the State board of health
within the past few months, said Dr.
Williams, the secretary of the state
board, and it is noticeable fear of
the disease is spreading among lead*
lug people, who are being careful of
their db" to avoid it.
Mut although the doctors are still
at a loss as to definite facts either
regarding the cause of the disease
or its remedy, they are still proced
Ing on the theory that it i.- caused by
eating products of corn. And yel
several cases base come tu li<;ht
recently. In which the physicians in
charge report that the patients have
never eaten any products of corn* it
is thought likely that these patients
have been eating corn meal in some
form they were unaware of. and to
the end of running down this side
mystery of the subject, Dr. Parker,
the board's pure food expert, is now
at work Investigating staple foods
which it Is thought might contain
pari corn meal. If suspicious along
this line are verified by the analyses
now in progress a distinct sensation

Dr. Williams today, "thai a physician

MAMFACTUKi: OK COTTON StiKD.
Interesting t'rocos* in Oblainingr Oil

Although the manufacture of prod
ucts from cotton is now one of the
South's biggest industries, very few
people, e\eu those who deal with the
staple itself, have any Idea of the
method used in treating the seed for
the extraction of the valuable by
products, The work done in the mills
is of special Interest Jo, South Caro

In Columbia, Charleston ami sev eral
othei towns of the state the cotton

in brief the process used In the
mills Is as follows:
As the seed are received they are
placed in :\ large central room, Her"
they tire put on an einliest conveyor
which carries them t-, the Unters.
The lint that covers the seed nfter the
ginning is removed. There nre about
17 pounds of this lint to ti toli of good
seel. Even this by-product the
Unter?IS now used for making cotton
batting, mattresses, etc.
After the seeii pass through the
llnting machines they are conveyed (o
the crushers. The kernel ol the seed
is mechanically taken out and the
hulls are carried otto waj and the
meaty little kernel another. The hulls
are used as a forage feed for cows and
Following the kernel of the seed,
they will be foumi in a son of roller
mill machine similar to a wheat Hour
roller. Then they nie pul into tl
steamer and cooked thoroughly.
From the cooker they are put n little
at a time into a powerful press. The
oil is thus pressed out through a thick
Cloth made of Camel's hair and the

The oil i< put into large tanks and
the cakes are ground up into the yel

The refined oils are used for cooking
?purposes and soaps are made from the
dross taken from the refined oil.
