Superintendent of Education Geo. L.
Pitts Is now soliciting prizes to be
given to the corn club boys. It is not
necessary to dwell here on tha good
cause for which he is working, but we
do want to ask that Mr. Pitts be aided
and encouraged in the work. It must
be remembered that this is not a
part of bis duties as superintendent of
education nor does he receive any pay
for it. He is working, we believe, for
the interest of the boys and girls of
this generation and of the tuen and
women of the future. He deserves
It will be Impossible for him. even
if he fell willitiK to do so, to See ev
ery man who is able to give a prize
for this cause. Ills time, like yours and
Spurs, is limited. He would like to
see n number of prizes offered for the
boys without being forced to beg for
them. It OUghl not to be necessary for
him to no around and beg the well
tO-do people of this county to give
prizes for this cause. They have nl
reody felt the benefits of the work of
last year and they should he now will
ing to oncourngo it again. So. Mr.
Pills would like for the people who
feel able to come forward and offer
prizes for the young corn growers.
They have worked under dlfuCUltlOS
this yea!- ami when the time comes
for them to show what thry have done,
they should not be greeted by indif
ference on the part of their elders.
Anybody who is willing to respond to
this call and to make an offer for the
young fellows should address a letter
to Mr. Pitts at once ami advise him
of the offer. The prize givors should
not be confined to the merchants on
ly, but the farmers of the county are
just as able and willing to help as the
town folks and Mr. Pitts would be
glad to see them respond too. A large
list of prizes is wanted, so everyone
who feels willing is requested to make
ERECTS OWN MONUMENT.
Laurens Count) Man Krects his Own
Monument to Suit his Own Taste.
A tombstone has been erected in
the City cemetery the like of which
has probably never been equaled In

urday and has attracted the attention
of a largo number of people.
Although Mr. Copeland Is now not
classed as a young man, being seven

ITS PRACTICAL VALUE.
The Storing Picture as an Educational
Feature In Wisconsin.
The value of the educational picture,
so constantly emphasized by .The
Moving Picture World has found prac
tical recognition in the prosperous
and progressive State of Wisconsin.
The legislature of that State has, at
its last session, appropriated the sum
of $150,000, part of which is to be used
in the purchase of moving picture ma
chines and suitable Ulms. This means
that the representatives of the people
have officially sanctioned the aid of
the picture In elementary and advanc
ed education and in university exten
Boln work. It was for these purposes
that the money was granted. It Is,
under the Circumstances, neither vis
ionary nor optimistic to expect similar
steps in other tSates. The teachers
are ready for the education film, the
pupils are eager for them, but tho pro
ducers of this kind of film are slow
to recognize the demand and supply it.

Editor The Advertiser: ?
Well, I have finished my silo and
filled it with corn. I have put about
six acres of corn into it and it is not
quite full at that, so you can have
somo idea how much stuff can be put
into a hole ten by twenty. But corn
this year planted in March was quite
small, therefore it required more corn
to fill It. I had corn last year that
I believe made more on three acres
than was made on six this year. -
I intended to have corn planted in
May for ensllege, but it kept so dry
that I could not plant anything at nil
for ensllege. so 1 had to do the best
taht I could.
Now, as to the cost of my silo. I
wrote to all of the silo builders whose
advertisements I could find and the
cheapest wooden one that 1 could find
was quoted at $125.00, P. O. B. factory.
Brick or concrete silos cost about
twice or three times as much. So I
bought my lumbor here and had it
dressed perfectly square and hired
Mr. W. A. Copcland and showed him
how to build it. We got along flue
and made a success of it. The lumber
that went into the silo (1,400 feet)
cost mo $16.10, one keg of 40 I) nails
cost $3.00, dressing and seven iron
bands cost $13.00, labor cost $10.00
and the basement and foundation cost
$10.00. So you can see that I got
through with it very light compared
with the bought one. I have not put
a top on it yet although I expect to.
I have bought ten gallons of paint,
costing $8.5)0, with which I expect to
paint it. using one of my wages hands.
A top is not entirely necessary.
So you can see that I am paving
the way for that care of line Holstein
Priesian cows that we have been talk
ing about. They are coining too at the
proper time for several of our wide
awake farmers are talking about tak
ing two or more heifers.
Now, my idea is to purchase two year
old heifers bred so we can get. an early
start with young cattle and acclima
tize them at the same time. The cows
sell at anywhere from $100 to $l?r>00
each and will give from four to fifteen
gallons of milk per day and as much
as four and a half pounds of butter
each day for eleven months In the year.
So who would not want one of these
cows and do away with seven or eight
scrubs to get this amount of milk? I
have already been offered $."?0.00 for
every bull calf that t have for sale.
So come up, all who are interested in
the dual purpose cow and lets make
lip two cars instead or one and send
a man up to the Holstein fields to buy
them and bring them home.

THE FALLING HOCKS.
1 am going to relate a phenomenon
that happened in the Poplar Spring
section years ago.
Watchers were sitting tip with the
sick, .at a certain bouse and at night
when quietly attending to the patient,
rocks would suddenly fall on the tloor
In their midst, apparently coming down
through the boards on the bouse. Also
strange sounds were heard over their
heads. Such a thing attracted unus
ual attention. Crowds were soon at
tending and the house and yard would
be full of visitors. They watched close
ly to lind out the cause of these things.
Sometimes a rock would come down
from the sky, right into the arowd, out
In the yard. Soon another one would
fall on the lloor of the house. The peo
ple were terribly excited over such
occuranees . Some of the level head
ed old men got to going in to inves
tigate. By quietly watching the crowd
they found certain young men with
rocks in their pockets, who would
unobserved slip them out and let them
come down amongst the people. They
had things wrought up to an alarm
ing extent, before they were caught
carrying on the delusion.
The elders advised their neighbors
to stop the meeting of so many peo
ple at their houses. The excitement
soon subsided. But the first cause of
tho noises and falling rocks I never
did hear them satisfactorily explained.

be! To what extremes
We" are often lead!
