Its Climate and People.
Oifted withl the nea'lrest to an ide~al
climal~te to be found InI the( westernl
world, Uruguay 1121 done1 miuch to (de
velop its naturali resources and1( to
make lIfe congeni for its pele~. The
average temlfperaturle for tile summer
is only 72 degrees andi~ for wInter is
55 degrees. As a result of the highly
favorable cliate tile phlysical char
acteristics of tile Uruguayan people
are remarkable. They are taller, finer
set-up and have cleaurer complextons
than any of tile oth~er Southl Ameriean
peoples. There is less of the IndIan
in thlem, too, thlan in ally of tile other
dIwellers on the soulthlernl continent.
Tile country has a faIrly complete sys
temn of riliroaids, three of wich are
guaranteed by the government-.-that is,
a certaIn net income Is alssured to
them each year. The counltry Is going
in for good roads very ralpidIly and
macadanmIzed roads extendl for alboult
forty mnies outsidle of Montevideo, the
capital and chief city.
As Uruguay hasi 1mad(1 efforts to at
tract a subhstaill type of immilgra
tion, tile populaition Is of dliverse ori
gin. At presenlt te Spaish and( Itai
Ians prdlomllinate, SpanishI being tile
language of the country. There are
several Swilss and Ger'man colonies,
however. The ImIahlgralnts are closely
r~i nlned, for the com try, wanmts 1none

181m. At one timle tile Urugunyan gov
ernment offered to immIIligran1ts not
only free land, blut tile mleains to pur
chlase tile n~eeded farm stock andl~ im
plemen2ts. However, thle lucrease inl
populatIon hats been so malrkedi of late
years that no extra inlducemlents are
now offered to new settlers.
Women Are Beautiful.
Thie Uruguayan womien are said to
be more beautiful even than theo wom
en of ChIle. They are more democrat
IC, more inclined to thle new order of
things than the women in mont Lain
countries. Not in any other Iamd are
to be found such splendidlhorsewomen
as those of Uruguay; they learn to
ride when chbildren and they equal in
feats of riding the daredevil guachos
of the plains.
The country is given over mostly to
cattle raising and kIndred industries,
although the soil is said to be admir
ably adapted to agriculture. There is
an absence, however, of the great
ranchos that distinguish Argentina
the Uruguayan lands are more broken
up into small holdings. Frequently
the guachos or cowboys are part own
ers of the herds, serving only in sub
ordinate capacities because the
ranchero Is better fitted for handling
business. The Swiss colonists, be
sides taking with them the customs of
their own land, have established the
dairying aid cheesemaking industries
with whieh they were familiar in Eu
rope. They also took with them a
knowledge of vineyards that has re
sulted in the introduetion of a new
source of wealth to Uruguay.
Manuftieturing has made little prog
ress outside Montevideo, where live
nearly ai third of the country's 1.500.
000 people. lowever, Imanny of the
factories in the busy seaport capital
would do credit to any flourishing
American or European city. It is in
lie workshops nd manufacturing
plats of montevideo that the govern
Iment hauus imposed the eight-hour day,
not alone because of the greater el1i
liincy brouglt by the short day, but
because of the feeling that the work
ers must inive ample timo for reerea
tion. Montevideo is one of the lead
ing cities in South Amerlea, both In

Keeps its Currecmy Value Up.
Uruguay is financially one of the
liost slbisttnitlil countries in the
world. It has a pnper currency, but
Its peso en htie exchiged for slight
ly more than par value (of thei goldl
('OinI of any coun1t1 ry. Its exports have,
for a number of years. kept well ahead
of its implor'ts. In aL recent year they

The combuiinedl aereage of the coun
try Is abiouit 50,000,000t, oif which ab~out
'10,000,000 acres is dlevoted to grazing
and pasture land. A serious effort is
being mad~e by the state to reforest
a part of the land and rewards are
offered to private persons who plant
and1( care for trees on their land. The
government also appropiriates a large
sum annually for agricultural shows
In each of the 19 departments or
states. The government has given
$100,000 for buildings for the Rural
association of Uruguay, which holds
an annual gathering at Montevideo.
Europeans enjoy equal rights with
natives under the Uruguayan laws,
b~ut these lawvs are strictly enforced.
Owing to the low percentage of pov
erty and the prev'alling temperance of
the people, the percentage of serious
crime Is said to be below that oIf vir'
tually all other American countries.
WV. H. Koebel, one of tjhe widest-known
authorities on South Amerien, says:
"In the matter of sobriety Uruguay
can easily allow points to almost any
other nation. Only a snmall plrop~ortion
of crime is caused in Uruguay by
either dilshionesty or drink." Uruguay
an haws dlealing with corporations and
inves~Iiftmet have bleen lenient in the
past, but a nmovemnent has bee'tn under

STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN!
JUST A MINUTE
The problem of making our farms self-sustaining'
of raising FOOD FOR MAN and FEED FOR STOCK
at home is so important, so far-reaching that we
frankly don't see much chance of making farms in
Laurens County permanently profitable unless it is
properly solved. Your cotton money is going out of
the county in enormous quantities right now because
we have not learned that profitable farming hinges on
this one thing probably more than any other.
The best test of your farming ability is: Do you
make your farm Self-Sustaining?
To stand the test requires forethought, well laid
plans, business sense. It requires that we shall make
Past Mistakes into Present Helps.
There are two classes of farmers in Laurens
County this spring, classified by reason of their think
ing and planning for this year:
THE FIRST ONE THINKS TO HIMSELF:
"Cotton's going to be mighty high next
fall, at least 18 cents per pound; Every Bale Possible
This Year if ever in our lives. Let's put that field
where the oats were killed in cotton. We can work a
little harder and handle it all right, If It Doesn't Rain
THE OTHER ONE SAYS:
"Boys, our stomachs first this year, then our pock
et books. Guess this farm Can Make Its Own Liv
ing This Year we can use our cotton money next fall to
PAY DEBTS O STARTSAVINGS ACCOUNTS
as the occasion demands.""
Which class is the iAggest in this county and
TO WHIC It 4O YOU BELONG?
Let's measure the price of cotton not in cents per
pound but in~ terms of what necessities it will pur
chase. Look over these figures and see if its high
measured that way.
The purchasing power of a bale of cotton at $60.00 spring of
1914 is here compared with a bale at $90.00 now.
Hay 4 tons at $15.00 3 3-4 tons at $24.00
Corn 80 bushels at .75 75 bushels at 1.20
Oats 92 bushels at .65 90 bushels at 1.00
Flour 12 barrels at 5.00 9 barrels at 10.00
Lard 600 lbs. at .10 500 lbs. at .18
Salt Pork 500 lbs. at .12 500 lbs. at .18
Sweet Patatoes 92 bushels at .65 90 bushels at 1.00
Irish Potatoes 66 bushels at .90 40 bushels at 2.25
