The General Assembly Asked to Appro
priate.850,000 to It
At the approaching session of the
Legislature the following memorial
will be presented:
To the General Assembly of the State
of South Caralina: The memorial of
the South Carolina Inter-State and
West Indian Exposition Gompany, a
.corporation duly chartered under the
laws of the State of South Carolina,
respectfully shows:
That heretofore the General Assem
bly of this State by a concurrent reso
lution, adopted the 9th of January,
Resolved, "That the projected Ex
position in the fall of 1901, at the
State's metropolis, of all industries and
resources of the whole State. material
and otherwise, demands and deserves
the encouragement and endorsement,
and also the active co-operation of
each and every citizen of the State who
has the welfare of the Commonwealth
at heart"
Your memorialist~further shows that
this encouraging declaration made, as
above stated, by the Legislative de
partment of our State Government,
gave an immense impetus to the pro
ject of holding, within the limits of
South Carelina, an Inter-State Exp si
tion, and the important enterprise was
soen thereafter inaugurated under. the
most auspicious circumstances. From
every portion of the State came cheer
ig words of endorsement, and the
promise of co-operation and substan
tial aid. The enterprise was heralded
at home and abroad as a supreme ef
fort-of our people to place the State
upon the highest industrial plane, and

Increase of Winter Wheat an Decrease
of Spring Wheat Crop..The Cora Crop
Oue of the Four Largest Ever Predneed
1n this Country.
Washington, Dec. 27.- The statis
tician of the department of agriculture
estimats the United States' wheat
crop of 1900 at 522,229,505 bushels, the
area actually harvest d being 42,495,
385 acres, and the average yield per
acre 12.29 bushels. The production of
winter wheat is estimated at 350,025,
409 bushels and that of spring wheat
at 172.204 096 bushels, the area actual
ly harvested being 26,233,897 acres in
the former case and 16,259,488 acres
in the latter. Winter wheat acreage
totally abandoned in Ohio, Michigan,
Indiana and Illinois is finally placed
at 3,522,787 acres, and the spring wheat
acreage totally abandoned in North
Dak9ta-and South Dakota at 1,793,457
acres. -The xtraordinarily rapid rate
at which the winter wheat average of
Nebraska is gaining upon the spring
wheat average of that State has neces
sitated a special investigation of the
relative extent to whik the two va

is that,-while no change is called for-in

The newli seeded area of winter
wheat 1# estimated at 30,282,684 acres.
Whie this acreage Is slightly greater
than that sown in the fall of 1899. as
estimateldat the A'me,'t Is 600,654
areeiess than the . area that .was.;1c
tqlyI sown, the discrepancy being due
to that reeaikably rapid development
of winter wheat growing In Nebratka,
withwhich, as above stated, the do
partment reperts had failed to keep
pace. A omparison of the newly
seeded acreage with that of the fall of.
1899 shows that of the eleven States
and Territories that sowed one million
acres or upward with winter wheat
one year ago, Pennsylvania, Missouri,

Dr Nesom of Clemson Trying to Arranse
for One
Dr. G. E. Nesom, in charge of the
veterinary department of Clemsot
College, is sending over the State a
c'Ircular letter looking to the establish
mont of a purely agricnltural jcurnal
In this State.
It Is proposed that a stock company
be formed with a capital stock of at
least $5,000, divided into shares of $10
each. As soon as the subscriptions
amount to $3,000, a meeting of the
stockholders will be called and a per
manent organization perfected. After
this, a charter will be secured, pay
ment ,:f subscriptions called for, and
arrangements made to begin the pub
lication of the paper.
In the prospectus Dr. Nesom says:
g"This is sent you in the hope that
you are a eader of agricultural litera
ture, and stand ready to encourage a
home enterl rise in the form of an up
to-date jourwil devoted to the inter
ests of ie fa iners and stocemen of
South Usroli ha and the adjoining
States. It is not the purpose of this
letter to poit't cut the reasons why to
day we have no modern farm paper in
this section, to which the farmers may
look for information on subjects of
local and State inteiest on agricultural
lines, but to briefly outline the plan by
which such publication may be had.
It is a fair estimate to say that four
fifths of the people of South Carolina
are in some way engaged In agricultu
ral pursuit. With the great variety
of soil, climate and coaditions from
the seashore to the mountalns, and the
production of almost every field rnd
garden crop tt at grows ii, the south,
besides considerable stock raising,
there is no reason why our agricultural
Intrests should not equal or exceed
those of any other Atlantic State.
But in order to bring our farmers,
stocknen, fruit growers and market.
gardeners -into closer relations, we.
must have in this State a journal de
voted exclusively to agriculture, and
adapted to our special needs. The
matter published in It must be of such
character as to, command tle attention

This is undoubtedly the prettiest
weather for the Christmas holidays we
2call to memory. Christmas Eve
quite pleasant and Xmas day was
anilmost ideal one. Everybody seems
to be spending the holidays quite
pleasantly, though in a somewhat quiet
Manner. To the children especially
this la the gladdest time of the -iar,
because it is fraught with so much that
is calculated to bring joy and merri
ment to their young hearts. The
coming of Santa Claus with his usual
abundant store of gifti to gladden
ther-sbarts, the kind rememboees
of loving parents and friends, all cop
tribute to make this season the glad
dot of the year. Let us, whatever
may be our views as to the real time
of 'the birth of Christ, endeavor to
carry into effect His birth sobA:
"Aesee on.earth;. good will to men,"
thereby putting the true spirit into
the day,-iemembering that if not an

wliosame to seek and save that which
was lost.
