to see the prosperity of the State put
on a safe 'and unshifting plane. Col.
Watson declared that the trouble with
the people is waste and improvident
ways anid the inability to grasp the
situittion and produce at home the
things that are consumed 'at home.
when, this can be done so easily and at
such a reduced cost.
Taking the city of Columbia for ex
ample, lie said that lie had inquired
among the thinking and earnest c-m
mission metn of the city and htlI learn
ed tat something like 800 cars of pro
duce were shipped into the city of Co
lumbia. One fIlrm alone -handled 1,2
cars of Packing house products, sides,
fat backs, lard, etc., and the total valne
of packing house products receeived
last year was imearly $3,000.000--11l1
from beyond the borders of the State.
What difference did it make what the

ten. "I believe in the movement uin
dertaken by tie state department of
agriculture," he said. "I think or ough
of the State of South Carolina to ap
preclate that this whole system . is
wrong. And any time that the people
will have sense enough to raise their
own stuff at home and pt: ile ot
of business 1 will be able to find an
other Job somewhere Ahse. Dtw until
that time comes I expect to ilssh illy
sales as large as possible ,n.l ats Io
estly as I can."
Among the astonishing things that
had been learned from Columbia (-omn
mission merchants was that there
have been flve cars of turnips shipped
into Columbia in the last four weeks
from where? From Canada. And theme
have been many cars of cabbage from
New York state and there are a him
dred ears of canned tomatoes and veg
etables a year. Not to mention 20,000
barrels of Irish Potatoes at ant aver
age of 35 cents a peck and million
pounds of cabbage at from $1 to $3
per hundred. Talk of hard times? Why

it is the money that'we waste and
that we give away that keeps us 'poor
and not the low price of our one lone
some "money crop."
Tle following figures are the esti
mated consumption per month by the
average family in Columbia:
Flour-Ifty postnds at $6 per barrel.
Butter-eight pounds at 37 1-2 cents.
Condensed Milk-twelve cans at
$1.25 per dozen.
I-log Products-bacon, 12 to 15
pounds at, 15 ceilts; ham, 40 pounds at
22 cents; strips, 10 pounds at 27 cents.
The volume of business done in
grainl is also astonishing. A reliable
commission merchant reports that
last year there were 150,000 bushels
of oats shipped into the city, average
price 50 cents per bushel; 15,000 tons
of mixed feed, supplementing the oats.
Corn, 625,000 bushels at an average
of 90. cents.
Wheat, 6M25,000 bushels represented
in 125,000 barrels of flour at $5.10 to
$6 per barrel.
Tile city of Columbia uses annually
about 1 6,000 barrels of apples and
nany thousands of dollars are spent
for iciles anid iekled vegetables,
which could have been put. Up at 1101110.
Ileso things were stressed very
eklrlestly by Commissioner Watson to
show that the commission merchants
themselves realize that the people of
tile Ftate could pr'od'cee te very things
that they think it. too .nuch trolble to

FPdltor The Advertiser:
I am delighted to see an article in
your last Issue by "Tx Payer" In re
gard to "The'county as a Farmer".
If I understand it right, it is the duty
or'a supet'visor to put his time to the
affairs pertaining to that ofice, and
if he has time to spare to look after
farming, etc., it seems to us he could
have time to at least see what a de
plorable condition some of our roads
are Il. We are just about to go into
the winter with about as bad roads as
we have ever seen. If he will visit
the "vicinity of Waterloo" I think he
will find soine roads that would scare
a Rocky Mountain billy goat.
The ronds that we most need in win
ter are the least Jooked after. The
good Lord gives us good roads in sun\
iner and we care very little about them
at that time, so far as cosy travel Is
concerned, the very places that are a
menace to the public in winter, are
not scarcely touched at any time in
the wiay of repair.
There is, to my13 certain knowledge,
about 90 per cent of the small bridges
along the roads of Waterloo township
that are in real bad condition, and on
three occasions in one day recently,
the writer had to stop1 his buggy, get
out and place fence rails on bridges
so as to cross. We are aware of the
fact that tie roads surrounding the
town of Laurens for a few miles are
"flIle"-but we pCQple who live to
travel from 10 to 20 miles to get to the
county court house, have to bear the
burden of bad roads at the expense of
our horse and mule flesh and yet this
is "Progressive Laurens."
Reimarkable Cure of Croup.
"Last winter when my little boy had
crop I got him a bottle of Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. I honest be
lieve it saved his life," writes Mrs. .
11. Cook, Indiana, Pa. "it cut the 4
PhhIv9gm and relieved his coughing
spells. I am most grateful for what
this remedy has done for him." For'.
