The Advertiser will be glad to
receive the local news of all the
communities in the county. Cor
respondenits are requested to
sign their names to the contrl
butions.. Letters should not be
mailed later than Monday morn
The fact that flour has reached
$8.00 a barrel and loaf bread has gone
upil one cent should serve as another
spur to southern farmers to raise
more grain and less cotton.
Nothing indicates the reduction in
the cotton crop this year more than
the reduced sale of fertilizers. While
we disagree with the policy of reduc
tion of the use of fertilizer per acre,
the facts are that less of It is being
bought. Figures sent out. by Clemson
college show that hardly one fourth
as much was sold in January this
year as in the same month last year.
Rather than reduce the amount of
fertilizer it seems to us that a better
policy would be to use an euInal
amount but on other crops than cot
. " .
The legislat ure has been very wise
in postponing action on the two cent
railroad rate bill. The railroads, like
the rest of us, have been hit hard by
the conditions resulting from the war,
and any attack upon their earning
power at this time might result dis
astrously, j I ;.1 ig
While we agree with Gov. Manning
that it would have been better and
certainly pleasanter to have an assist
ant attorney general in sympathy with
his own polilces, still, since there
seems to be no way in which he can
enforce his wishes in the matter it
would have been bet ter to allow the
situation to remain as it. was rather
than create friction inl the capitol.

Letter From Mr. Humbert.
I wish to give not ice that, owing to
the slow collection of road taxes, we
are not able to authorize roads to be
dragged for pay. In mnny sections of
the county the citizens are doing vol
untary work, and we would be glad
if the people in all sections' would give
its similar help. It -would be time
well spent. We know that many can
not meet their taxes promptly, but
when taxes are not paid our revenue
is cut off, and of course we cannot
keep the usual amount of work going
on, and if in critical times like the
present the citizens of the different
communities would volunteer a little
assistance it would do much to relieve
I would also states that overseer's
commissions of last year are out of
force now, as these comumissions are
good only for the year in which they
are issue, and persons desiring to do
work on any goad, where pay is ex
pected, must have authority from some
member of the Board of County Com
