?Urtru Tuomlay and Wagon Taken
When on the way to a fire Monday
atsrit about midnight one of the city
hoae wagon* was overturned at the
corner of Liberty and Harvln streets
and the two firemen. Pat Gallagher
and orraaby Blandtng, and the col?
ored driver were pin tied down under
the wagon body. Messrs Gallagher
and Blandtng wars considerably
brulaed. the former on hla head and
arm, and the latter on his legs, while
the driver waa InJuied In the head
The men were pulled from under
Use wagon by persons who witness?
ed the accident and arrived on the
scene a few seconds after It took
place. Aa one of the oil lanterns
waa overturned and caught fire and
waa burning briskly the men were In
aurtoua dangsr when one of those who
arrived on the scene beat out the
flames with hla hat.
The wagon was overturned when It
?truck against the curbing. It aeems
that In leaving the fire house, the
eVtarer, who is a new man obtained a
four day* ago from BlehopvlUe. fas
teaed both lines to the same horse.
Blandina held the lines in leaving
the haue* acd on the approach to the
eoraer of Harvln and Liberty streets

w/ita them and handed them to the
driver and h* applied the brakes
The driver pulled in the horsee at

taw street, the line* being hitched to
cans hora* only, made Die animals
turn down Liberty street Instead of
continuing down Harvln street to the
tare, where the other wagen had gone.
Tue? wagon turned and struck the
pavement and was completely upset.
Fortunately nobody v as seriously
tajured. the msjority of the firemen
being on the first wagon which had
gone soaee seconds before the other
wagou earns out.

Spread of Cotton Anthracnose
Through seed?Pros* Bulletin No.
The fungus boll rot of cotton, cot?
ton anthracnose, seems to be especial?
ly prevalent in this State this sea?
son. A great many cases have been
reported where the disease Is occur?
ring in certain new varieties of cot?
ton purchased from seed dealers and
W? have learned from our investi?
gation here that anthracnose is car?
ried fn the seed and, from a study
of the outbreaks In the State, have
found t iat the majority of outbreaks
reported have been caused by plant?
ing diseased seed.
A number of new varieties of cot?
ton grown in this State this season
for the first time are badly diseased.
In fact it seems that we get the ma?
jority of our outbreaks of anthrac
SjOSS from seed purchased from oth
? r States and especially from Georgia.
One of these varieties, called the
"half and half" seems to be diseased
this season wherever grown. We ex?
perience the same thing every year.
Last year and the year before,
Brown's No. 1, was affected in the
same way. One gentleman from
Georgia writes me that he sold seed
to between five and six hundred farm?
ers In this State last winter and
spring. We have some of this same
gentleman's cotton growing on the j
Kxperlmcnt Station farm this season
and if all the cotton grown fffOM
the seed is as badly dLseased as that
nted here, the distribution and sale
>t this seed Is going to cost South
ollna farmers many thousands of
ars. 1 received a letter recently i
n a gentleman who writes as fol?
lows regarding the same variety of (
"I have nine acres of it planted and
after careful inspection by three dis?
interested parties, they estimate that
76 p*?r cent of the bolls are rotten."
Many other reports of a similar na?
ture have been received during the
past few weeks. We shall be very J
glad to hear from all the farmers In i
South Carolina who are suflering losw- |
es from anthracnose caused by plant- i
lng such seed.
It seems that there is nothing that '
enn be gone about (he sale of thin dis
eased seed now. but a strenuous effort
will be made to prevent its recurrence.
This kind of business has been go?
ing on now for several years and it
wus Just this year that we succeeded

His active experience in public af?

satisfy, it at least stands the test of
quality. Gov. Wilson has shown him?
