Columbia, . Dec. 24.?Using his
power of parole and pardon, Gov.
Coleman L. Blease has granted exec
utive clemency to 79 convicts as his
compliments of the Christmas season.
Some of the pardoned and paroled
convicts were serving sentences in
the state penitentiary, others were on
the various county chalngangs and |
others had already been paroled and
the pardon was granted simply in
order to restore citizenship. The of
fenses for which the convicts were
pardoned consist, Borne of murder and
others all the day down to minor
crimes. The convicts were released
this morning, in time to reach their
homes and spend Christmas day with
Probably the most interesting case
in the whole batch is that of J. Ches
ter Kennedy, white, of Barnwell
county, convicted of the murder of
a man by the name of Ussery, and
sentenced to life imprisonment in the
penitentiary. The killing of Ussery
occurred during a carnival week in
Barnwell, and excited much Interest
throughout the state. Two negroes arv
now serving life sentences for this
same offense, and one of the reasons
assigned for the pardon of Kennedy
Ly the governor is the difference in
statements of these two negroes on
their two trials nnd since, Kennedy
having beer, convicted largely on
Alex Garrell, a white man, of Flor
ence county, convicted In 1896, along
with a woman, for the murder of a
man was paroled. The woman was
previously granted clemency by a for
Samuel Randolph Way, of Colum
bia, who conducted a drugstore on
Main street, and was convicted of ob
taining money under false pretense
from his wife, was pardoned.
Robert Chestnut, of Orangeburg, a
white man, convicted of killing a man
concerning domestic relations, was
Louis Cantrell and Charles M.
Galnes, of Ooonee county, convicted
along with Charles L. Angel, of the
murder of a farmer of that county,
and sontenced to life imprisonment
in tho state penitentiary, were parol
ed on the condition that they leave]
the state within 24 hours and never
return. Angel was paroled last year.
A record was set in the number of
persons receiving clemency at one
time when Governor Donaghey, of
Arkansas, exercised clemency in 360
cases last week. The number receiv
ing clemency at the hands of Gov.
evnor Blease this Christmas is the
largest numer ever turned loose at
one time in the history of the state,
and is double the number turned
loose at any one time by the governor
Among those pardoned or paroled,
were three from Laurens county, as
XIpse Herbert, convicted at the De
cember, 1908, term of court, for Lart
iens county, of manslaughter, and

$15,000,000 Loss on Eggs.
The loss of the farmers of the Unit
ed States from bad methods of pro
ducing and handling eggs is estimat
ed at $45,000.000 annually.
It is also estimated that fl5.000.000
of this loss is due to blood rings.
Every dollar of this loss from blood
rings 1b directly preventable on the
Blood rings are a certain stage of
chick development in the egg.
Heat develops the germ until it be
comes a blood ring.
Blood rings often develop in the
nest and in an unheated room in the
house during hot summer weather.
Blood rings cannot be produced in
the infertile egg.
Blood rings are troublesome only
in hot weather.
Infertile eggs are laid by hens that
are not allowed to run with a male
A study of egg fertilization should
quickly convince one that the infertile
egg is the quality egg; therofore, pro
duce it, by removing the male birds
from the flocks, and realize more mon
ey for better eggs. The removal of
the male birds has absolutely no in
fluence on the egg production.
Farmers are nrgcd to adhere strict
ly to the following rules in handling
their poultry and eggs:
1. Keep the nests clean, provide
one nest for every four hens.
2. Gather the eggs twice daily.
3. Keep the eggs in a cool, dry
room or cellar.
4. Market the eggs at least twice a
5. Sell, kill, or confine all male
birds as soon as the hatching season
The above information and rules
are sent out by the United States De
partment of Agriculture, and we trust
that Progressive Farmer readers will
Forty-five million dollars Is too big
a price to pay for the careless hand
ling of eggs, and all this great loss
falls upon the farmer. The "cracks"
and "spots" and "dirties" detract from
the price of every market egg sold,
except the comparatively few that gj
to special customers or under the spe
cial trademark of some poultryman
who has made a reputation for his
It is quite possible for every read
er of The Progressive Farmer to keep
clean nests for his hens to lay in.
The eggs can be gathered at least
once, if not twice a day. They enn
be kept in a cool place?not near the
kitchen stove or where Uiey will be
warmed.by the sunshine?after being
gathered. And in most cases, they
can be marketed at least once a week
in winter and twice in summer. The
parcels post will help here.
Another rule we might add is, that
when you find an old nest full of eggs,
you do not send them to market, but
keep them for home use.
The rule to which we wish to call
special attention, however, is No. 5.
You are losing money every day you
let male birds run with your laying
hens, unless you wish the eggs for
hatching. The hen3 lay fewer eggs
when the males are present, and the/se
eggs do not keep as well.
Get rid of surplus males and keep
the others away from hens, except
when eggs are needed for hatching.
