So much damage has lately been
done to Southern forests by the pine
beetle, a bark-boring insect, that the
United States Department of Agricul
ture has established a field station at
Spartanburg, s. c. for special study
of the insect. Mr. T. W. Turner is in
charge of the station and anyone
whose pine trees arc dying should get
in touch with him at once. The loss
^(r^nn this insect may he enormous if
"steps are not taken to cheek its rav
ages, and it is high time, anyway, for
the people of the South to begin tak
ing care of their timber. These often
neglected pine forests are one of our
richest heritages, but we have ben
fearfully wasteful and careless with

8 THE TIMBER CROP. 8
"It is painful to see the way the
pine forests are being butchered and
wasted in Florida.'* said an educator
who recently made a short trip
through that State. "The lumbermen,
as a rule, simply make a clean sweep
wherever tbey go?leaving no prop
er stand of trees on the land for fu
ture growh, and forest tires, more of
ten than not. are allowed to klM the
young growth even where it is -.low
ed to got ?! start. The land is also Im
poverished through the destruction
of humus that the pine straw would
furnish is allow< d to rot instead of
being burned off."
What is hero reported of Florida is
true of far too many other sections of
the Sou'::. Wo can not too often em
phasize the fact that the timber is a
farm crop jii.,; truly as coin or
cotton, and Should be as carefully
looked after. The Importance of keep
ing a good stand is not more import
ant in one case than the other.
Ami with tbe growing scarcity of
lumber and the steady rise in its
price, the farmer should have as lit
tle mercy on the man responsible for
bring his woods as he would have on
a man responsible for firing his corn
crib.?Tin? Progressive Fanner.
S Tili) HAY SHORTAGE. 8
There is no doubt that they will
command a higher price the coining
winter than ever known before. The
dry sining and summer has cut the
hay crop short almost everywhere,
and the chances are. that in many
sections, cattle will have to be sold
for lack of forage to keep them. One
paper is urging farmers to disk their
stubble fields and sow timothy and
clover in August. This may do In
some Northern sections, but in the
South I would advise differently. With
la ml in good heart and capablo of
making a good grass crop, I would
plow well and put 111 good order, ami
in September or early October sow
Italian rye grass seed. Sowed with a
liberal amount of seed at that time,
this grass will make a one hay crop
In the spring, but will not last, ami
had better bo treated as an annual.
V'ears ogo I visited a farm in New
Jersey, near New York City, where
Ihoy had Just cut n crop of this grass
if nearly three tons an aero from seed
-owed the previous September.

Tho "railroad story" below appear
ed in The Qreenvlllo News Friday.
This road lias been brought up and
discussed and surveyed and financed
for some several times, but it never
has gottOll much further. The action
of the promoters in scraping off that
? old roadbed might bo taken as an in
dication that they mean business this
time. Whether they do or not remains
to be seen. Here is tho story as it
appeared in The News:
The Qreenvlllo & Augusta Hail
road is the name of the new road
which it is proposed to build from
Qreenvlllo to Augusta, (Ja., and for
the immediate construction of which
work was begun yesterday some thir
teen miles below the city, A large
force of hands was put to work I
clearing off the old road bed of the
Carolina Knoxville & Western which]
will bo used most of the distance.
The proposed route of the road is!
from Qreenvlllo to Ware Shoals,'
I Greenwood, Ninety Six, and either
Johnston or Edgcficld, to Augusta. In
addition to the force of Laborers who |
began work yesterday afternoon,
some thirteen miles below the city,
a party of eleven engineers and as
sistants started surveying for the
road a short distance south of the
city. This party will continue the
survey over the entire route from
Greenville to Augusta.
For some time past the construc
tion of tills railroad from Greenville
to Augusta lias been talked in busi
ness circles of the city, but nothing
of a definite nature was heard until
information was received on Wednes
day to the effect that the Secretary
of State had commissioned tho
Grenvllle & Augusta Construction
company, which firm is composed of
those who are to build the road. The
announcement from persons Interest
ed in the construction of the road
that work was begun yesterday at
two points of the road, and coupling
this with the fact that the Construc
tion company was chartered, is suf
ficient to show that those interested
are going to construct he road.
The Uirecors qI the new- road
are: From Greenville, Messrs Henry
llrlggs, J. I*. Charles and Frank?
Hammoild; from New York. Messrs
.1. C. Fossott and Harry Zlmmerly.

company had made all necessary

8 COLLEGE EDUCATION FOU ALL. 8
v 88888888888*88 8, 88888
A collego education for every boy
and girl in our southern farm homes
must In? our "war cry" for tho next
few yours to come. Now, to parents
who have not thought of tho problem
long and seriously 1 can understand
with what panic a father will he
seized when he wakens suddenly to
his responsibility for tho education of
his la rue family. It Is probable that
simply to wrest a monger living from
tho soil, to provide clothing and
shelter for his flock requires long
days of toll and nights of planning.
It may he thai all he can do with the
problem is to offer a word of encour
agement to .lohn or Mary who should
now go away to college; hut that he
can do. and he should do it. Many a
hoy lias gone away to school with
only money enough lor railroad fare

has completed a college course ami
has done well later in ||fe, Other
hoys have gone without the blessing
and have walked all tho way to their
future ?alma mtlter" ami have done
equally w 11. I am pleased to re
member a youth who. when ho sei
out lor Ith chosen school, found upon
his arrival on registration day that
tin- sum of $'! was all ho had left for
a four-year.-' college course, lie re
mained at college, however, four full !
years, did himself honor In his stud
ies, and one of his professors told me
thai on graduation day he had $2.7?
of the original sum with which he loft
The problem of a college education
for the entire family of boys and
girls may be a hard one to solve, but
it can be done. Tho question today
I am not quite willing to advise or
encourage any boy or girl to start to
college witli no money whatsoever,
even though some have done it and
have succeeded in the doing. It
scents to me that the boy or girl who
Is reared from tho cradle with the
college as the ultimate goal will, dur
ing the early years, And ways and
means of laying by a small sum for
this purpose. Thai is the better
plan. To earn all one's college ex
penses and at the same time carry
tllo required studies makes tho work
too burdensome for average should
ers. The social features, the recrea
tions and amusements of college days
are loo precious a part of the life to
bo hurled in constant hard work. I
know of a college thai is now offer
ing what may be t irined a "Work
Course," where young men work on ?
tho college farm and do < la.-s-room j
work week about, and In that way
pay all of their college OX pen OS,
room, board, books, tuition, equip'
meat, all, The plan has worked sue- <
cessfully for the past two years, ami
young men of sterling worth who are'
making records for scholarship are :
i hturned out of that institution.
There are few In -tittitiouH of learn
ing in the COUli v in re a young
iin ii or young' wo: n may not earn
college senior year by sweeping and
>i lag tho botanical laboratory. A
yoiing girl of my acquaintance earned
practically all of her col legi- expenses
by raising potatoes. At the planting
lime a plot of ground was set apart
for (he daughter ami she ami liOI"
mother "tended" the crop. When the
crop was harvested and sold, the edu
cation fund was put away in the
bank, not to bo called into use until
the time io use it arrived. Another
parent whom I knew gave a calf each
year to his daughter lor her educa
tion fund. Tho entire care of the an
imal was left lo tl.e little gii! ami
it is needless to say that, as time
wohl on she became on oxpert ani
