The co.ton crop has been about mar- J
keted, and it is a good time for our j
subscriber* t<> pay ur-ir ?u*o- up<iW,.,
Look at your label a?;d pa> what yoa
A few weeks ago G. H. M. nrged
farmer? to plant broom c">rn Iu thi*
connection the lol!owia-< from ihe
2faws and Coarier of the 8th of December
will be of special interest:
In the course of three weeks in Oc- j
tober, it is reported, $1,400,000 in ca^h
was paid out in the little town of
Arcjla, Illinois, a placs of 2 500 inhabitants,
to the farmers of the t;e:ghborhood
for their crops of broom corn.
The buyers were the a<jeat^ or the
e?Tha rkr:f?f? i,f
oroom HtMiiuisv^iuic*a. r..?
the prodnct at the besiuning of the
season was $60 a ton. Later it ro-e to
$100 and even higher. Tne average
cost of raising the crop 011 land rentiD?r
at $5 an acre, it is stated, is about
$33 a ton.
We note these tever*! reported facis [
for the sake of whatever intere-t ihey
may have for larraers in these parts, j
For several years pa<-t we hare advised
farmers in South Carolina to r-xperiment
with the crop i i question, and
we repeated the adv:ce las.t \car, in I
time to allow it to be applied to this
year's crop operations. Any ot ourj
agricultural friends who so applied it I
doubtless have gocd reason to eon- j
gratulate themselves on haviDg done
so. We renew tbe suggestion now in
good time for its application next season,
which is several months off.
A crop which will bring $1,400,000,
or the half of that sum, into a neighborhood
or county or district every
year, is a crop worth cultivating. And
broom corn is a crop that cau be grown j
in nearly all parts of South Carolina.
We have been tola oy a iarmur wuu
waa familiar with the crop as grown in
New York, that the finest specimens of
it he had ever seen were grown in the
low conutry, iD this State. It is not
hard to cultivate. Th3 general requirements,
we believe, are about the
same as those lor corn or sorghum
csne. Some of our progressive farmer*
frhonld give it a fair trial. Tbo exp
riment will r.ot cost much, and it
may lead to comfortable deveopmeets.
It is by adopting now crops that oar
farms shall prove profitable ia the
fa?are. Broom corn seems a good
crop to look after.
The second battle at Moddle River
r3?uItioj in a terrible British defeat
will more than ever convince the
British that they will have no walk
over in South Africa. It is interesting
to note what outside newspapers including
the British press have had to
say about the war even before this
jast cusasier.
The London Saturday Review ba%
begun to discredit reports. It says:
"Rumors (bat the Orange Free State
B^ers are returning to their farms
must be received with extreme caution,"
bat it thinks that "the Boers
probably begin to realize now that
thty cannot win in the end." Since
this wa3 written the Boers have had
much to enconrage tiiem.
Many of the European papers are
new asking tbe question, Can England
win? Charles Loarent, in the Paris
Matin says: "Punishment reaches
England at the time of her greatest
arrogance. The United Kingdom is
safe, but there will be an end to
"Greater Britain." The c >ij quest of
the Transvaal will never be oompleted,
and other enslaved nations will also
rise, for courage as well as cowardice
in catchinsr. Deeoite their ownership
of the cable* the En?lisb will not be
alia to preveut the world from knowing
the truth The?r will mast bend
before a patiiotism which to fay
the least, as great as their own."
In Germany the Literary Dige-t
states that toe pre>R is harirg much
fan quoting Bismarck's saying that
"John Bull may .turn out to be an
asinmauc prize ua imuci iuau ? .
The German paper Fiankforter
Zeitung says:
"It ia all rery well to talk of mobilizing
another army corps; but tbe
thing is not easily done. Great Britain
ha? ft ?rr?at number of battalions which
? ? o
need only men to make them as mag
niQcest as tfcey appear on pape .
Their war (.trengtlr Is supposed to t e
1,000 men. In ti*e of peace tnev
cumber hardly 400. An army corp*
has three diyiaions of 12.000 men;
with the fifth division, which is >.t
present being 'organized, there wouM
be 48.000 men. At present, Gre?=t
Britain ha.? only 41 battalions ot infantrv
left, with very little cavilrv
and leas arti lerv. Deducting the un
fit and th >se who nre already s'nt or
designed to be sent to fiil the ??p-> in
Africa, only 12,300 regulars of the infantry
remain. Tbe reserves will
yield, at the highest, 30,000 men. If
ih'ioe 13,000 men are sent to Africi,
Ti>.eland remains UflDrotected. If she
listens to her most prudent adviser,
Msjor Grifficb, who warns her that
unforeseen trouble may arise, especially
in Ireland, she will not i-end
more thau the fifth division,"

51st, where I remained for ten iJajsi
and was then sent on to B\>rt liiie-,j
Kansas, at which point the regiment j
was recruited. After the regiment j
was fully recruited we were moved i
from Fort Riley on October 30 h to
tan Francisco, reaching San F; ancisco
on the afternoon of November 4'fo,
w^ere wc waited in camp a the
Pre?ido for assignment to the transport
for carriage to Manila. My
regiment, which is the 40th, U. S. V.,
and compauy M, was aligned to
transports Ohio and Indiana, which
.ailed from San Francisco on .November
23rd. I am on the Ohio, which
lauded here Saturday morning, eight
days from San Francisco, with Col.
Goiwin and staff, band and six companies
of the 40th Infantry and 211
recruits, making a total of 850 men.
