Statistics recently published by the
Bureau of Ciop iEstimates show that
the estimated amount of fertilizer used
per acre this year in the first agricul
tural district of this state, wichkit in
cludes a2aurens, was 393 pounds, cost
ing $10.02 per aere. Ii the 3rd dis
'trict, including Marlboro county.
'415 poulnds wero used, costing
.20.S, a difference of around $10 per
aere. It is claimed that. Marlboro
land is better than Laurens land, and
maybe is, but it is possible that larl
boro farmers get better results by the
more extensive use of fertilizers. Ae
cording to these figures Laurens farm
ers coild pract ically double the
amount of fertilizer at a cost of $10.00.
At the prevailing price of cotton,
around 40 cents per pound, an increase
of 25 potinds of Iint cotton per acr-e
would pay for the extra fertilizer and
another live pounds -would pay a year's
subscription to The Advertiser.

We agree with Mr. Samuel Gomiper's,
president of the American Federalion
of Labor, whten he says "Te public
has no rights which are superior' to
the toiler's rights to live and to his
right to defend himself against op
pression." We woul apply the word
"toilers", lowever, to all I tose who
'work in any way. whether with their
hands orl brains and extend it also Io
