(Left Out Last Week.)
Lisbon, April 10.-The farmers are
well up with their work, great deal of
corn planted and up, good many ready
to plant cotton seed, but they are wait
Ing until the ground gets warmer; the
small grain looks fairly well in places.
The farmei's have used less fertilizer
this season than usual,.and we think
that the farmers are going Into stock
and hog raising and plant. less cotton
as the years roll by. The farmers
know by actual experience that they
can make more by making their own
food stuff, and if that would reduce
the cotton crop down to 10,000,000 we
would realize more money than we
would if we got 15,000,000.
We are glad to see so many out for
the different offices, as it will give ev
ery man a chance to vote for the man
of their choice. Mr. Cooper is a man
that we are very much interested in
and we hope to see him governor of
South Carolina, next year.
Miss Elizabeth Mclauro has been
working hard to make a good showing

hope to see her children conic second

SMITH'S NITRATE SCHEME
ADOPTED BY THE SENATE
lpper House Iisposes of Second Big
Fight on Army Bill Items by Ac.
eepting Sbuth Carolina's Amend.
ment for Government Fertilizer
Washington, April 14.-The senate
late today adopted the army bill
amendment of Senator Smith of
South Carolina appropriating $15,
000,000 for a government nitrate plant.
The vote was 43 to 22.
This action disposed of the second
big fight in the senate over the sen
ate substitute for the house army re
organization bill. Senator Smith's
amendment provides for the sale of
Panama canal bonds for raising the
required $15,000,000 and the presi
dent is authorized to designate not
more than five water power sites for
power plants. When products of these
plants, which will be operated exclu
sively by the government, are 4lot
needed for manufacture of munitions
of war the surplus could be sold for
Three Democrats-Senators Cham
berlain, chairman of the military af
fairs committee; Hardwick and
.Johnson of Main-voted against the
amendment, while seven Republicans
-Senators Clapp, Gronna, Kenyon,
l.a Follette, McCumber, Norris and
Poindexter--joined the majority in
Today's action was taken in spite
of the contentions of the military
committee that an army reorganiza
tion measure was no place for water
power legislation. A nitrate water
power section in the house bill was
defeated when the i-lay bill was un
der consideration in the house so
that final determination of the issue
must await action in conference.
Over the objection of the military
committee an amendment by Senator
Iomerene giving military rank to
