Season For Deep Plowing.
lt has been generally conceded that
.ne thing which made the large yiejd
.f cotton possible last year was the
thorough preparation. During the
preceding fall and early spring practi
cally, all of the land was well broken
with very heavy plows, which made
tire preparation of the seed bed not on
ly comparatively easy but put the soil
ia: better condition than it had ever
keen in this county.
Nb cv is the time to begin prepara
tion fora large yield next year. The
time and money spent now in deep
ajpwing will bring large returns when
karvesting time comes. Not only so,
kat this deep plowing will make the
activation of the crop easier and
Jfest as soon as possible set the two
horse plows going. It will store away
Ute rains of winter and deepen the soil
kesides. Wonder how many farmers
will heed this reminder? The Adver
tiser generally gives practical, sensible
a?Tice. What we urge others todo we
*i we proven by actual practice.
The coming of so many dreadn?ughts
into the Charleston harbor this week
gives th ?t port some very favorable
advertising at a time when it may
bring large returns. In a few years
the Panama canal will be a much
travelled thoroughfare connecting the
two oceans, and the South Atlantic
port that offers the greatest advantages
as a shipping point wili reap the larg
est commercial returns from the canal.
Charleston is not only the nearest de9p
water port to the canal, but its connec
tions with the central west give it an
other point of vantage that other ports
do not possess. In this connection, the
government dry dock at Charleston
gives Carolina's metropolis still anoth
It is to be hoped that Charleston will
use to the best possible advantage the
publicity that is gained through "fleet
week. " Notwithstanding the fast that
all of the first-class battleships are
vessels of very heavy draft, the dogs
of-war glided into port as easily as if
they had been sail boats. Not every
Atlantic port can accommodate the
Georgia and President Wilson.
In spite of the fact that Governor
Wilson married a Savannah lady and
was for a time a resident of the state
of Georgia, he received practically no
support from that state prior to his
nomination. Even in the national con
vention in Baltimore our sister state
voted solidly against Mr. Wilson as
long as there was hope of nominating
Mr. Underwood. All of this seemed
strange at the time; but few under
stood Georgia's attitude. With almost
unprecedented loyalty Soufh Carolina
supported Mr. Wilson in the national
convention, while with dogged deter
mination Georgia's delegation went
solidly against him.
A dispatch from Atlanta referring to
the defeat of President Taft as elimi
nating Augusta as a "winter capital",
calls attention to the fact that as a
former native of Georgia and a lover
of golf, it is not believed that Wood
row Wilson, the president-elect "will
entirely overlook the natural beauty
and advantages of this state as a place
for an occasional winter residence."
President Wilson will doubtless remem
ber all this and more too. He will re
member that Georgia supported some
one else for the presidency at a time,
indeed a crucial moment, when but a
feather's weight might have turned
the tide against him. When Mr. Wil
son thinks of the 46 ballots of the Pal
metto state in contrast with Georgia's
attitude the preponderence is over
whelmingly in favor of South Carolina
as "a place for an occasional winter

them to the shipper is but slight.
