In the morning she made a short talk to the Bap tist Sunday school and in the after noon at the Methodist church Miss Vandiver addressed a uuion service which was held in the interest ol' all of the Sunday schools of the town. She has devoted many years of her life to Sunday school work, and is capable of presenting every phase effectively and offers valuable suggestions to officers, and. teachers, helping them over many difficult places.

To the Editor of The Adveriiser: Of more than passing interest to the farmers of Sooth Carolina, and par ticularly the cotton growers, is the measure introduced and passed through the efforts of Senator E. D. Smith requiring the department ol agriculture to test the sensible strength, that is, the yarn-making quality of each and every grade of cotton; to bleach every grade wheth er in the form of yarn or cloth, in order to determine the cost and the result of bleaching; to estimate care fully the amount of waste in each grade incident to converting it into yarn and cloth: to estimate careful ly the value of this waste. From this it will readily be seen that the result of these experiments will be of incalculable benefit to the grower. This measure became a law at the last session of congress and the department of Agriculture is now engaged in the work of in vestigation, lt will give the produc er the requisite knowledge from an impartal official source of the real commercial value of every grade of cotton. As is well known, both the export and domestic buyers make a differ ence between middling and the low er grades of anywhere from $1.25 to $15.00 per bale. The producer had no way of knowing whether this was right, just or not. He had to take the word of the trade. By virtue of this law, he will be fur nished a bulletin giving him fail knowledge of all these facts. So that when he comes to market he will be thoroughly informed as to the val ue of every grade in reference to its manufacturing value, and will not have to take the word of an interest ed party. In conjunction with the above law, the grades have been standard ized by the government. Senator Smith has begun a campaign to have every shipping point in the cotton growing states furnished with a set of these standardized samples, that is, every shipping point where there is a sworn weigher or other competent official to take charge of them. It can readily be seen _that, with the knowledge furnished by the provision which is already law, as to the value of each grade, that if each shipping point is fur nished with a set of samples, the farmer who comes to market to sell is thoroughly equipped to protect himself against being buncoed or deceived as to what grade his cot ton is and the value of that grade. To illustrate, when a farmer comes to market where there is a set of standard samples, he can determine himself what his grade is and not be dependent upon the buyer to say what the grade is. When the grade bas been determined by comparison with the government standard, the farmer then can determine the val ue of that grade by reference to the government tests furnished him. For instance, suppose the buyer offers the producer a half cent or three quarters of a cent less for his low middling than for middling. Suppose the fanner, by reference to his bulletin finds that, according to government tests, low middling for manufacturing purposes is as valua ble as middling. With this knowl edge, he can demand the same price for his low middling as he does for middling and it would be up to him whether he takes less or demands the sam ?. In a word, he will be in possession of all the knowledge available in reference to the value and the grade of his cotton that the mill man and buyer has, and can govern himseif accordingly. In senator Smith's opinion, that is the most important legislation ever enacted in behalf of the colton growers. Senator Smith has re-introduced and is pushing his bill looking to the regulation of cotton exchanges. This is the same measure that came near passing at the last session of congress. Briefly stated, th?8 bill provides that in each and every contract for the future delivery of cotton the grade or grades contract ed for shall be specifically named in the contract, and such grade or grades as are named shall be accord ing to government standardization. This will legalize the standardized grades in interstate commerce and give the sanction of law to ihe use of the standard grades in every state. In commenting upon Senator Smith's measure (providing for cot ton tests, Dr. N. A. Cobb, chief technologist of the department of agriculture, says: "Preliminary negotiations have been practically completed with one of the best equipped textile schools B?K POI Absolute Economizes Eggs; makes appetizing ai Tide only Bakin from Royal Grap and also of the leading cotton mills of the south for making the waste tensile strength and bleaching test* of the different grades of cotton as standardized by the government. "About ten bales of each of the full grades will be used from 1-inch upland and 1-inch gulf cotton re spectively, an aggregate of about | 100 bales (or as much thereof as the j present appropriation will provide.) A portion of each bale is to be sent to the textile school and the remain der to the mill, thus giving identi cal cotton for two runs. The same speeds, organization and conditions will be utilized in the two runs as far as possible. Part of the raw stock from each grade mixing will be bleached, and yarn made from each mixing to ascertain if there is any diff?rence in the cost of bleach ing, or in the way the resultant stock behaves in the manufacturing processes. .Bleaching tests will also be made in the laboratory on the finished yarns. 'In addition to the various num ber of yarns ordinarily made by the trade from the respective grades, the same number of yarn will be made from each grade. Tensile strength tests of all yarns will be made in the variety of ways, and by a variety of agencies. "Samples of the yarn and other products manufactured will be sub mitted to commission merchants, buyers and sellers of yarn to ascer tain the true commercial value of all samples. "Quotations M ill also be obtained from waste dealers and r ii''a that manufacture waste to d' nine the relative commercial v of the va rious types of wasf ie from the respective grade "The relativ _ost of manufac tures will be taken carefully into consideration. Data secured in this way should aid in determining the intrinsic value of the various offi cial grades of cotton and should as sist in adjusting the premiums and penalties on and off the bisis grade, middling."
