LAND SETTLEMENTS IN

that the process of acquiring owner

In South Carolina, ethere are aboul
19,500,000 acres. Two-thirds, or aboul
13,500,000 acres are in farms. One
third of the State lies absolutely Idle
for agricultural purposes; it consists
of roads, towns and cities, and worn
out an swamp wood land. But of the
13,500,000 acres in farms. creps art
grown on less than half. To be exact
the crops of 1917 were grown on 6,198,
000 acres. Probably at least as niuc
more can be used for growing
(tops and for pastures. but Ie'
us say there yet remain onll1
