- THE ROMANCE OF WHEAT.
Onco Raised For Princes Only, Now
the World's Food.
Wheat is the food of princes and
peasants. It is the food of tin' world.
It was known to be the best food for
Hfty centuries, but it did not until
thirty or forty years ago become unl
vorsal. Every community ate all it
raised. There was none to s< "?? It
was so precious that only kings and
the nobilities could afford it. It was
sowed by peasants, who reaped it
With a sickle by hand. For 5.000
years no better plan was conceived
than the sickle and the scythe, 'then
catne the reaper, an Invention by Cy
rus H. McCormick, of Scotch-Irish de
scent. Then the world began eating
This new machine, the reaper, when
it was full grown into (he self binder
was equal to forty sic kles. With one
man to drive it. it could cut and bind
enough wheat In one season t<> feed
?loo persons. In its most highly de
veloped form, the combined harvester
and thrasher, it has become so gigan
tic a machine that thirty-two horses
tire required to haul it.
This leviathan cuts a fifty foot road
way through the grain, thrashes it
and bags it at the rate of one bag
every half minute. And the total
world production of reapers of every
sort self binders, mowers, headers,
corn binders, etc.?is probably as
many as 1,500,000 a year, two-thirds
of them being made in the United
Because of this harvesting ma
chinery the wheat crop of the world
is now nearly twice what it was in
is7'.?. The American crop has multi
plied Six and a half times in fifty
years. Western Canada. Australia,
Siberia and Argentina have become
The eosl <>f growing one bushel in
America with machinery and high
wages is now aboul half a dollar,
which is less than ilie eosl in Europe
and as low as the cost in India, where
laborers can be hired for a few pen
nles a day. With a sickle the lime
cost of a bushel "f wheat was three
hours. With a self binder it i-- now
Then came the steamboat and the
railroad that carried the grain. At the
outset it was shipped in hags. Then
some rail way genius invented the grain
ear, which holds as much as twenty or
twenty live wagon loads, and today one
of the ordinary moving pictures of an
American railroad is a sixty ear train
traveling eastward with enough wheat
In Its rolling bins to plve bread to a
city of 10.000 people for a year.
The Siberian railway, which is the
longest straight line of steel in the
world, was built largely as a wheat
conveyor. So were the railways of
western Canada, Argentina and India.
It is cheaper to carry wheat from
one country to another than from the
barn to the nearest town, 't he average
distance that an American farmer lias
to haul his grain is nine ami a half
miles, and the average cost of haulage
is 0 cents for a hundred pounds. Thus
it has actually become true that to
carry wheat ten miles by wagon costs
more than 2,o00 miles by steamship.
Such Is the tense efficiency of our
wheat carrier system that a bushel of
grain can now be picked up in Mis
souri anil sent to the cotton spinners
of England for a dime.
First Feeding of Chick*.
Don't feed raw dough or rough
mush to young chicks such us you
feed larger Chicks. Raw dough sours
iu the crop and brings on all sorts of
bowel troubles. If you want to feed
this stuff cook It well beforehand
Well menus through and through, not
jltsl a hard crust on the outside and
the middle a soggy, wet mash. This
is as bad as feeding It raw.
Chicks will do well for awhile on a
grain ration alone, but they will do

Fruits and Produce
Laurens, S. C. $? Clinton, S. C.
We are trying to build up a Fruit and Produce Business in Laurons and
Clinton and ask for the co-operation of the Merchants in these towns and the
surrounding territory. The trade is capable of supporting a local house of
this kind easily and if you v. ill give us your orders we*guarantee to keep the
goods in stock for you and to supply you with nothing but the very best qual
ity of stuff obtainable. It is clearly to your advantage to get your supplies at
home for these reasons:
First. Fruit and Produce is highly perishable. Ordering from a dis
tance the goods are often delayed in transit and reach you in bad order. We
can supply you with fresh supplies and give you immediate delivery right at
your door in town. Same day orders are received from nut of town points.
Solid Refrigerator cars arriving every day or two, three cars this week.
Second, Our prices are lower, We handle Fruit and Produce in con
nection with our Grocery Business and can afford to sell closer than any exclu
sive fruit and produce house. We buy in solid cars direct from the markets as
cheap as anybody. We have no additional expense for traveling salesmen,
warehouse and office and labor. Further you tan always save the difference
Lastly: Other things being equal, the home man ought to have the
order. We spend our mony here and help to build up and advertise the town.
What's the use in patronizing foreign houses and letting the money get out of
the county. Think it over and give us a showing. We stand on our record
for square dealing, (let the habit of 'phoningus regularly.
