Six is built 4i near proyimity to Old
Camhridge Fort of Rovolutionary
days, whose sturdy garrison withstood
the siege of the Tories. This fort
wns the site of the court house of the
first district in upper South Carolina
-ut that's -something else. Now,
we'll get further along with our nar
rative. Gen. Androw Pickens the
original Pickens-moved iuo what is
now known as the edge of Ocneo
County on the Seneca river. In those
times Greenville, Oconee and Pickons
belonged to the Cherokee Indians.
Through Gen. Pickens' influence,
South Carolina's Revolutionary gover
nor, Rutledge, established a fort on
the Keowoo river, named Fort George;
it was located at the foot of the1
.llue Ridge mountain., twelve miles ]
from Clemson College of today and
was garrisoned by fifty men.
The fort was in a fertile valley on ]
the river banks, and remains of the I
fortiticaticns can he seen to this day
Nearby was a settlement of the ("hero
kee Indians. The big chiefs got to- t
gether and after days of planiug and
council, set a night for the massacre
of the garrison of Fort Gnorgo. Du- I
ring this period a stalwart soldier of
the little band had gotte'n busy
making love to a maid of the Cherokee
tribe, the Catoechee. She was pretty
as pink shoos and red ribbon, and she (
loved the young soldier to boat the I
band in return. Cateeohee did not
.atch on to the bntohory program un
t,il the vory evening of its happening ;
but she acted quickly.
Local historians whq h*4ve lived in
and about Ninety Six all their lives B
and their people before them told them
the logond, and they all aflirm it, that
the pretty Indian maid,who was game C
.all right, rode her horse from Forr.

If any of our "armers' Union nom- --
bors have already bought any of the
medti.oioItilizeru. that are short in
value. our Union 'Bureggvojuld advise
you first to make out a carefui state..
Wett in money valne accordine to short
age and present yonr claim tI the local
agitW otf' faotory that .,old you. the: 4
goods, and no duuby; if your claim is
bafed upon actual shortage in money
value the manufacturer of the goods
could no't refuao -to pay a just olabn
Otherwise, -if you are sure that .vyour a
claim is a just one, and the manufac- -
tnrer refuses to settle the matter, this
would bo prima facie ovdonce that
fraud nas intended at the -start an
proceedins should be taken at once
through your busin'ess agent to re'
cover the foes.
After establishinp the fact that th
price of fertilizers was raised this year
and at the same time the quality of the
goods reduced, thero is no jury in the
country that would stand for a rakc-oa
both going and coming,as this fact ap
pears to be.
In looking over the Fertilizer 3ulle
in we find girto a number of samples
from dcitTeront manufacturers that are
short in some one of the three impor
tant ingrodients--aumnmonia,phosphoric
acid or potash ; but as the money value
in the shortage has been made up in
the excess on othe- ingredients the
companies falling short under those
circumstances are not amenablo to
1 penalties under the last fertilizer law
s for this, as the fertilizer men claim
s unavoidable error that sometimes come
9 to the best mnanagement iii their ma
t nipulation of ingredients.
- I But, however, if the farmer has an
I idea that this over can be avoided he
- has a remody in buying his Ingredi
> ents in large wholesale lots and doing
his own manipulating of his fertilizers
which no doubt can be done on most
farms with considerable profit, outside
of the comfort of knowing that he is
not liable to be getting the shortage
on one point where some other man is
getting the lpng end of some ingredi
ont that ho did not order. This whole
review of this matter emphasize the
importance of buying fertilizer ingredi,
ente in largo lots through your organi
zations, where your sample test may
be mado stand for shipments of several
hundred ton lots instead of ten or
twelve tons whoro samples hav. been
