Farmers' Union News
Practical Thoughts for Practical Farmers
(Conducted by E. W. Dabbs, President Farmers* Union of Suinter
The Watchman and Southron having decided to double Its service by
semi-weekly publication, would Improve that service by special features.
The first to be inaugurated is this Department for the Farmers' Union and
Practical Farmers which I have been requested to conduct. It will be my
aim to give the Union news and official calls of the Union. To that end
officers, and members of the Union are requested to use these columns.
Also to publish such clippings from the agricultural papers and Govern?
ment Bulletins as I think will be of practical benefit to our readers. Ori?
ginal articles by any of our readers telling of their successes or failures
will be appreciated and published.
Trusting this Department will be of mutual Denefit to all concerned,
? THE EDITOR.
All communications for tl 4s Department should be sent to E. W. Dabbs,
Mayesville, S. C.
Farmers' Union meets on Friday,
Nov. 12th, at Salem School House In?
stead of 2nd of Nov. as published in

Some Random Thoughts.
The very Interesting letter from
"Alabama Farm" Is so good that I
have secured the writer's permission
to publish It. It was for my private
information, but treats the subject In
such a practical way that Watchman
and Southron readers will do well to
gvie it a careful reading. I must con?
fess that I am almost persuaded that
it is a good way to save corn. I trust
the other friend will give his method
of shocking for next week's Issue.
? I ?
I am sending the printer some ar
tlles by Dr. Tait Butler of the Pro?
gressive Farmer on the subject of
teant and landlord for use In these
columns as space permits. It Is a sub?
ject the has received my earnest con?
sideration for many years. I have
been on both sides, tenant and land?
lord, and know some of the difficulties |
in the way of a better understanding, j
First and foremost -is the lack of con?
fidence each In the other; the idea
that each is trying to "do" the other.
Dr. Butler Is eminently right that
landlords mus?t provl? i better n dines. ?
I H? must aJso look ?fter th. repair*
and ditching and pay for thorn. To
do this as it should be done, and give
proper attention to breaking, manur?
ing, rotation and disposition of crops
as outlined by Dr. Butler, he will have
to charge higher rents than the land?
lord who merely let his tenant scratch
the land and "root hog or die." Even
with higher rents, the returns to the
tenant would be so much greater that
he could prosper beyond comparlslon
with the present system or rather lack
of system. E. W. D.
THE ARITHMETIC THAT YOUR
CHILDREN OUGHT TO USE.
Stevens ft Butler's "Practical Arith?
metic" Is the Only One Ever Wilt
ten Especially to Meet the Needs of
Country Children and Every Rural
School lu America Should Adopt It.
(By Clarence H. Poe.)
Although Dr. Talt Butler is Asso?
ciate Editor of The Progressive Farm?
er, the Editor-in-Chief is going to say
a word about a book of which Dr.
I utler Is one of the authors?and we
shall say just what we should say if
Dr. Butler were absolutely unkonwn
Positively and unequivocally then,
lot us say. "A Practical Arithmetic," ,
by Dr. and Mrs. F. L. Stevens and Dr.
Tart Butler, just published by Charles
Sorlbner's Sons, New York City, la,
In our opinion, the most useful text
hook we have ever seen?the most
valuable, booh for the counry sc hools
\v?- do not mean to say thai there
are not other text-booki the study
of Which would help the farmer c hild
PS nnn ln bttl WS do mean tu say that
there is not ? leBt*booh in Bngllsh to?
day Which OOUld not Im- wiped out of
1 ? ? ? s ith lees loss to the schools
and the public than this brand new
i.k of st. vsna k- Butler's. Lsl any
other text*book drop out and ther<
arc other text-books so near like it
thai ihi loss would nardl) be felt, but
there la absolutely nothing to take the
l Ines of this "Practical Arithmetic."
There is nothing like it in print.
Moreover, are do not believe thai
anywhere else lu the educational
world Is there a need so crying as
that which this text-book has come to
meet. For a hundred years our far?
mer boya and glris have been studying
wretched) mtsfM lent-booki of mathe?
matics, text-books which have told all
about banking and commissions and
foreign exeange and latitude und
longitude and English money and the
metric system of weights and meas?
ures and a thousand other things eith?
er utterly foreign or utterly useless,
or both, while never an example have
they given as to how to calculate the
value of a ton of fertilizers, how to
mix different elements so as to get a
certain analysis, how to mix different
feeds so as to get economical rations
for stock, how to calculate how much
a silo will hold, how to ascertain the
values of dairy cows from their milk
yields and the Babcock test, or any
one of a thousand other things that
would illustrate the value of science
as applied to agriculture.
Now comes Stevens & Butler's
"Practical Arithmetic." the only one
ever written from the standpoint of
the country child, and meets all these
needs and meets them abundantly.
From beginning to end it is thorough?
ly practical, and it is as Interesting a
text-book as heart could wish; deal?
ing with things of everyday life, it ap?
peals as no other book could do to the
enthusiasm and Interest of the farm?
er boy?and the farmer girl, too, for
there are special problems for her,
problems In dress-making and the
value and composition of foods, and
We really believe this book will do
more to quicken interest in agricul?
ture than any text-book on agricul?
ture yet brought out. Every rural
school in America ought to adopt it,
and even where it is not adopted, pa?
rents ought to get permission from
their teachers to use it. Not because
we know the authors or have any in?
terest whatever in thrm. but simply j
? ?? muse this la Incomparably tho best, i
laosl practical and moat helpful aruh- j
metic ever made for the country
child, we would say to ev? ry father
and mother who reads The Progres?
sive Farmer. ' If there is any possible
why of arranging it, make your boys
and girls study Stevens & Butler's
"Practical Arithmetic' As compared
with the dull, citified, misfit books
they are now using it would pay you
to get Stevens & Butler's instead if It
cost $10 a copy. 1
What Your 1910 Rental Contracts
Ought to Cover.
A rental contract should definitely
Statt and control, so that there can be
no misunderstanding, the following
1. The crops to be planted and the
number of acres to be devoted to
each, with a reasonably well defined
crop rotation and the use of cover .
2. The disposition of the crops? '
whether to be sold off the farm or fed i
to live stock?and the care and dispo- I
Pltlon of the manure.
3. The horse and mule power and
the implements to be used in break- i
ing and preparing the land for the"
These are essential and basic mat?
ters which must not be left to the
pleasure of either land owner or ten'
ant, If more is to be gotten out of the
rsnted lauds in the fuiure.
A rental contract should also be for
a term of not less than five years,
With an option to the renter to renew
the contract for another similar per?
iod at a stated price. This is so mani?
festly to the interest of both landlord
and tenant that it is surprising that
the destructive one-year renting prac?
tice is ao common throughout the
South.- Progressive Farmer.
CUTTING AM) SHOCKING COHN.
(By a Clarendon County Farmer.)
I see you are not much of a COm
tover man. i see also that you are
to have an article from a stover ad?
vocate. Before i read hla "effort" I
am going to give you my opinion and
experience and see how many points
we agree upon.
It was only after reading Dr. Hun
nlcutl on stover for a couple of years
and having made up my mind fully
about Its practical value, that I went
Into it. and am keeping at it, now
some eight years. The greatest dis?
appointment in stover lies in the fact
that a great many thought it about a
great a deliverer as "16 to 1" promi?
sed to be. We all thought that the
chemical value would work out in
practice. I soon saw that, while the
constituent parts of stover were, no
doublt, as represented, yet we could
not get stock to eat all of it, and so j
prove it out practically. But I did not
fsll out with the chemists and I did '
not fall out with Dr. Hunnicutt, nor
with corn stover. I have not stripped
fodder since beginning to make stov
er, and have fed my stock straight i
through from October till spring or I
oat time on stover for roughage. I ;
am not fool enough to say that I think
it equal to either good sweet corn fod?
der or peavlne hay, or that stock will
eat it all such as I have made. If I
can get them to eat from 50 to 75
per cent. I am satisfied. I am con?
fident that with a better machine, I
use a McCormick, that a better stover
can be made than I make, thereby in?
creasing the feeding efficiency. I put
up some last year that smelled as
sweet as fodder, and have a good pile
on hand now, and will begin to shred
in about two weeks.
Now for some of the reasons why I
believe some people don't like It, and
the difficulties in the way of making
a good article. Lets get a little near?
er home, and leave out the thought
that the nearness to the Southern sea?
board has anything to do with it.
1st. Corn should not be cut for
stover till practically all the shuck has
dried on the outside. Say 10 to 12
days later than good fodder stripping
time. By this time the fodder has
dried practically up to the ear. Wait?
ing this long though insures the corn
being harder, r.nd nearly all the late
stalks will be in condition. By this
time all the feeding roots are dead
and the corn if cut and the butt well
touching the ground moisture will
continue to rise about as well, to help
such ears as need it.
2nd. Mouldy corn is caused by
there being some late stalks, caused
by replanted corn, or moist spots in
the field. When I commenced to cut,
I would leave out these stalks, and
go back and get them afterwards, or
Intended to do so. Finding this did
not work out so well, I now cut ev?
erything and expect to have a little
corn not in good condition, but these
few ears, do not have any effect on
the good ones in the shock. I think
if those who find so much complaint
on account of bad corn could think
back, they would remember finding
bad corn every year. I left some rows
standing this year for comparison in
yield and found rotten corn in that.
3rd. The main reason for bad corn
or mouldy corn in shocked corn is be?
cause It Is not properly put up. I had
never seen a shock before I made one,
or.r? ~*~ not R very prent ???port yet.
A great many did It <>ne year and
quit The farmer nor his hands did
it right My experience hay been that
by the time I could gel a. set of han is
to know how, they would leave me
and next year would have a new set.
A shock must be built up evenly, all
round and must not be twisted in the
tying, and should be retted in about
six or ten days. I had shocks and
others about here that stood the
storm of last week. When properly
set up they will stand and 200 stalks
is not too much for one. If twisted
and not well tied they will go down
and then trouble starts I admit.
Shredding should be done In about six
weeks, but good shocks will stand till
Christmas, and a surprisingly small
amount of damage done to the fodder,
no more than to a good stack of hay.
As to corn being so that it can be told
in the dark that is nonsense. I have
corn shocked In the field now. Bring
a bushel of yours, and we will go to
the field and break out a bushel and
see what we see. If a man puts up a
shock that looks like an old press
screw, and rain gets in, that's his fault.
Or little shocks that fall down, that's
his fault again.
Now I figure that I can get my corn
shocked, shredded, corn In barn and
stover In loft as cheap as I can strip
fodder and break corn after the usual
style", or break corn and get rid of
stalks afterwards. I get more edible
roughage and a lot of the best stable
bedding the part not eaten. If you
want t?? out vines in corn field you
can gel a' it sooner and no stalks in
the way. If you want to plant oats in
corn land, you can go right in and
haul corn out afterwards.
We must plant corn thicker to get
a perfect stand ami cut OUl replant?
ing, then it will all ripen at once. In
ciiM' of scattering stalks, cut along
with the rest, in case of bottoms go
back and cut later. There are better
machines than the McCormick. unless
they have changed their knives or
shredder head. I believe I have not
yet found the beat way to ted it.
"ALABAMA FA KM."
The native ranch girls of the great
west have developed personality and
achieved B reputation for deeds of
skill ami daring almost equal to that
of their eo workers and sharers of
privations and hardships?the cow?

perfection ?>f equestrlanship the
ranch girl equals her cowboy broth?

these surprising exponents of femi?

forming a pleasing cOntraft to the
masculine portrayels of similar char?

Has Woman a Sense of Humor?
Not a wife-Eve but plays up from
morning to night to Adam's idea of
his own importance. S'he must as?
sume always that he is absolute mon?
arch of the little domestic kingdom,
no matter how firmly Intrenchet she
be as the power behind the throne,
writes Inez Haynes Gillmore in "Suc?
cess Magazine." She must assume al?
ways that he is the hub of his busi?
ness world, that it would fly to pieces
were he to absent himself from it for
a week?assume It even though she
knows that it is his capable under
clerk who keeps the wheels moving.
4 nd last, "Women h?.ve no sense of
humor." says?does the man live who
has not said it? It is the oldest brom
idiom extant. Yet man has always
before him the irrefutable evidence
that, for countless generations, wo?
man has lived with him. How could
she ha\e survived that ordeal minus
the s< nse of humor?

yet he killed himself because he could

It was a dramatic scene, pregnant
with the most tragic possibilities.
Thus thought a witness to the meeting
of three Italians near the big express
depot nt Fifteenth and Market streets.
A man and woman who were deliver?
ing a trunk into the hands of a clerk
were suddenly confronted by another
man, who was highly excited, ne ap?
proached woman. In rolubfe Ital?
ian he ra *ed and swore and plaaded,
whdo shi shrilled equally excised an
Hv.yT*. Tho other man stood beet"
against the w.ill. his aims folded deii
autly, bis bead sank ou his ebtet. It
certainly looked as if daggers were to
be drawn. The interested bystander
asked of some listeners who under?
stood the rapidly spluttered dialect
what the trouble was all about.
"Why," was the volunteered transla?
tion, "this woman has run away from
her husband with this man." pointing
to the sulky individual.
"Oh, and he is begging her to re?
turn?" was the next query.
"Not on your life." was the express?
ive reply. "She has packed up nil her
husband's clothes in her trunk, as well
as her own. and he is begging her to
give back nt least his Sunday suit."?

Members of the house of representa?

On one occasion the politician in
question ventured to air his views
touching a financial act under consid?

ribald observation from an opponent:
"Our able and adventurous friend
has undertaken to present bis views

THE GREATEST OF STATE FAIRS
EVERYONE WILL BE IN
COLUMBIA NOV. 1 TO 6.
Big Events Planned?Alt Sort* of
The forty-first annual state fair, to be
held lu Columbia November 1 to 6. nromlses
to be tbe best In tbe history of the South
Carolina Agricultural and Mechanical So?
ciety. Not only are the premiums offered
larger than ever before, but the officers of
the organization have arranged a program
rhat will bring hundreds of visitors from
uear by states.
On Faturday, November 6. tbe feature of
the closing day will be the visit of Presi?
dent Toft. He will make an address at the
Fair Grounds to several thousand people and
afterward will be taken through the city and
shown the principal tatota of interest.
The premium list issued some time ago
shows that a number of valuable prizes are
offered fur the beat dlaptay of farm prod?
ucts. This was one ef the features last
year in which there was lively competition,
and farmers throughout the state are writ
lug Secretary Love for Information as to
the conditions for entrance.
Another feature last year was the bench
show. There were so many entries in this
department that the society has decided
to Increase the prizes and classes to be ad?
mitted and a special space has been set
aside for the dogs.
The racing, of course, will be up to the
high standard. Since tbe society has Joined
the Virginia-Carollnas-Georgia racing cir?
cuit, the horses sent South are soiae of
the speediest lu tte country, and an exam?
ination or some of the records now being
made on the Virginia tracks will show that
royal sport is promised those who care for
the even's. President Mobley will set- that
the racing is kept absolutely clean.
A special committee is at work on the
?educational department. It Is planned to
have Tuesday set aside for the schools and
colleges, and with a view to encouraging
pride in school and college work considera?
ble space will be given for the exhibits.
Silver and bronze meduls are awarded as
prizes. The students and pupils must get
their admission cards from the officers of
tbe respective institutions one week before
the fair. *
Military day at the fair also promises to
be largely attended. Prizes have been of?
fered, and thru President Mobley. after a
conference with a number of officers of the
I South Carolina Gnard association, active
work Is being done among the various mem?
bers in order to insure a large attendance.
Further announcement concerning the condi?
tions will be made later.
Aside from the fair proper there will be
hundreds of attractions, including a large
midway, and the main street of the city
will be lined with shows under the control
of the officers of the Fair society. And

is Woman a Servant?
"In the main, the position of woman
is curiously like that of the servant in
the house," says Inez Haynes Gilmore
in "Success Magazine." "A servant
with good wages and a generous al?
lowance of afternoons and evenings
'out,' a servant carefully nursed when
she Is ill and attended by the master's
own physician, a servant who is sure
always of generous tips, when there
is extra work, and of a carefully sine
cured old age. Like a servant, how?
ever, it is to her interest to spy on the
master, to discover his weaknesses and
to play upon them. In some respects
it is a pleasant position, although it is
always an uncertain one. For, from
her birth to her death, her welfare
depends not on herself, but on a man;
her father or brother or guardian
first, her husband second, her son
last. Luck always controls her des?
tiny. Though the wheel of chance
may set her in a pleasant place today,
there is always the dread on her of a
week's notice, the possibility of the
crowded vista of the employment
"Her duties, ranging over a limited
arc of human endeavor, made for a
cheap versatility rather than, as in
tbe case of the men, for the develop
mi nt of special gifts. Her working
hours and her wages are arbitrarily
lixed by men. Her habit* are settled
by men. Her intellectual convictions
\ are doled out to her by men. She has
j never, until this generation, been per
j mitted to cultivate her mind. As her
i chief control of man is through his
i senses, she thinks almost entirely with
' her emotions.**
