Farmers' Institute.
Because of its interest and im
portance to the farmer of the
county we again call attention to
the Clemson College car and In
stitute to be held here next Mon
day, July 30. The cars will be
side tracked at the station and
the addresses will be made in the
court house. Let as many farm
ers throughout the county as
can possibly do so come to the
meeting and give the college
authorities a hearty and interested
Let the practical and the theo
retical farmer be on hand with a
lot of questions on practical farm
work and we feel quite sure from
the reputation of the teachers in
charge of the work, the questions
will be answered with candor and
profit. Think out your questions
beforehand, or better still com
mit them to paper. This will
help you and will certainly add
interest to the institute work.
As the time will be limited we
suggest that the questions be
confined to matters of practical
value. Too many of that kind
cannot be asked at an institute.
Here is a treat in storefor all
who will attend, we feel sure in
predicting. And the farmers
should not let an opportunity to
gain information on subjects so
vital to their work pass unap
preciated. Bring your wife with
you. There will be many mat
ters in which she will be inter
ested and subjects will be discus
sed in which she naturally shares
with her husband in interest.
The dairy department with the
tests, cream separation churns,
butter working and making, these
and other subjects equally in
teresting and profitable will come
up for discussion, Remember
the date, next Monday, July 30.
The Clemson exhibition car
will make this the most inter
esting institute ever held -in the
county. The following informa
tion in regard to the same will
be read with interest:
A coach has been loaned to
Clemson College by the Southern
Railway Company, and will be
transported free of cost to all
parts of the6 State reached by the
rack of that company.
This will give to the authorities
of Clemson College the means of
access to the people in all por
tions of South Carolina with
valuable instruction on . practical
question relating to agriculture,
mechanical, electrical and civil
engineering, textile and chemical
industry, geology ad general
industriea1 education.
There will be in this car, be
sides the experts, the needed
apparatus, appliancee, tools and
implements to make the course
of instruction highly entertain
ing and valuable. A first class
lantern, with many slides on a
large variety of subjects, ;illus
trative of the lectures, will be
among the desirable apparatus
provided. The most improved
eguipment for handling milk ,can
be seen, as well as diagrams and
charts showing the conformation
of dairy and beef cattle. .Speci
mens of plants, insects, minerals,
etc., will be found in this car.
Among these will be included 40
varieties of cotton, 30 varieties of
corn, 60 of cowpeas and L.5 of
vetch. Problems in entomnology
and horticulture will be given
the attention their importance
demands, and object lessons will
be provided showing the diffeient
m.ethods of pruning grapes, fruit
trees, and making grafts. 'The
car will contain a number of
varieties of pecans for the inspec
tion of the farmers.
s Much of interest will be found
in the exhibits of the mechanical,
electrical and textile departments.
The drawings and sample of
machinery will be very compre
heneice and valuable. There will
be sample of raw cotton from all
parts of the world, and of goods
made at the college and elsewhere.
A gasoline engine will be operat
ed and the mechanism of the
Jacquard loom explained.
This same car will also be
used for the institute to be held
at Blackstock, July 31.
Only Sz Years Old.
"I am only 82 years old and
don't expect even when I get to~
be real old to feel that way as
long as I can get Electric Bitters;"
says Mrs. E. H. Brunson, of Dub
lin, Ga. Surely there's nothing
else keeps the old as young and
makes the weak as strong as this
grand tonic medicine. Dyspep
sia, torpid liver, inflamed kidneys

Importance of the Cattle Tick.
The common cattle tick is a
familiar sight to all our people,
but very few outside of those
engaged in the cattle business
realize the important part it plays
in hindering the development of t
the cattle industry in the state. I
The cattle tick carries the "germ" <
that causes Texas fever, a disease <
very fatal to grown cattle. Cattle t
that are raised on land infested I
with ticks are inoculated with the E
germ by becoming infested with
ticks immediately after birth. At t
this age they suffer a very mild t
attack of the disease with no vis- I
ible external symptoms, and after
they have passed through it they f
are then proof against the infec
tion and can be exposed to ticks
later in life without harm. But I
if cattle are raised on land on I
which there are no ticks and are t
afterwards moved to tick-infested t
lands, they will become infected t
with the disease. They will also
suffer from the disease if they
remain on the land on which they
were raised and tick-infested cat- c
tie are introduced among them. r
Because of these facts the Fed- s
eral government has established a I
quarantine line across the coun- I
try dividing the regions infested t
with ticks from those in which t
there are no ticks. No cattle can E
be moved from the tick-infested .
regions across this quarantine
except when they are being t
shipped for butchering to a
slaughter-house which has direct
railroad connection. South Caro- d
lina is placed below this quaran
tine line among the tick-infested '
regions. Hence, cattle cannot be I
shipped from this state to points
above the quarantine line except
for immediate slaughter. Cattle '
for dairy purposes, or for feeding
or breeding are barred. Thus,
the market for the cattle produced
in the state is considerably re
Some of the states included d
within the tick-infested area,
notably Virginia, North Carolina, C
Texas and Oklahoma, which had T
within their boundaries an area
in which ticks existed only on a
few farms or ranches, have suc
ceeded in - having such areas
placed above the quarantine line, I.
thus opening new markets for the
cattle raised therein. This was c
accomplished by the passage of a q
law by the legislature establishing
a state quarantine dividing the
slightly infested area from the
other places in the slightly in
fested area. When these condi
tions were brought about the
state quarantine line was then
adopted by the Federal govern
ment and made a part of the
national quarantine line. This
pln is just as feasible in South
Carolina as in any of the states
mentioned. In a great part of
the state since the passag~e of the
stock law the cattle tick. has be
come almost extinct and exists
only on a place here and there.
The first step in the matter, how
ever, must be taken by the legis- 1

American Iumor.
There was an interesting dis
play of pretty clean American
humor in the friendly tilt between
Ambassador Reid and William
ennings Bryan at. the American
dinner in London on the night of
the Fourth. The incident was
purely American, and illustrates
the disposition of Americans to
"jolly" each other at all times
and all places. This very humor
keeps the country healthy, and
brings harmony and good fellow
ship after many trying issues.
Every son of Uncle Sam will
recognize this rivalry and banter
as an American product. The
report says:
Mr. Reid, in responding to Sir
W. B. Richmond's gracefil pro
posal of his health, said with
reference to Mr. Bryan:
"At home. as a citizen, I have
openly and squarely opposed him
at every stage of his conspicuous
career. I am reasonably sure
that when I return home I shall
continue to do the same. I be

tive of the American people with

glad to welcome him here as a
typical Amgericen whose life has
been lived by the daylight and
whom such a great host of my
countrymen have long trusted
and honored."
Mr. Bryan, arisia~g amia lugh
ter and gheers, said;
"The temptation to make a
political speech is strong within
me. I have not had a chance to
do so for ten months. However,
I will restrain myself. With refer
