Farmer's Bureau for the
t County.
Mr Editor:
Please allow me space in you
columns to get a note to the busines
men and the farmers of the county i:
order that I may put a proposition b
fore them, as I see it, by which th
Department of Agriculture, Clems:-]
College and the County Agents cai
mean most for the community build
ing and the general welfare of Edge
field. 1 shall attempt to partly out
line a Farmer's Bureau of Informa
tion for the County.
Eefore anything ca-ft be built or es
tablished, there must always be <
starting point. Blue prints are neces
sary for a large building; then, lei
us draw our blue prints for the agri
culture work in the county. At al
times there is some question coming
before the farmers that needs the o
pinions of others. There is always
some good clever information thal
good farmers have to give out. These
things should be thrashed out and
assimilated at some common center.
What we need is an advisory agri
culture board, which should hold sev
eral meeting during the year to aid
the county agents put on demonstra
tions to bring out practical good for
?he eounty. This should consist of
several representatives from each
community or school district, and of
t?? proves best to use the school
trustees to a great extent for this
purpose. This board should supervise
to an extent, the agriculture work
and advise when necessary. Also,
they should have located a clearing
iiouse of information at the county
seat preferably, and in a prominent
place. This should be open at all
times and should be connected with
telephones that reach all communi
ties. The county agents should have
their office here with regular office
days, and when they are out, there
should be someone present to give i
out information, distribute bulletins, j
literature etc. The advisory board
when possible should establish demon
stration plots on sumo farm, say the
County Farm, and should aid with
the agriculture and club work of the
Of course, at present, without
further study and assistance, it is im- ]
possible to tell all this bureau might ;
accomplish. I expect to attend the
agents' meeting at Clemson College
from January loth to 21st and there
expect to get information as to how
thebest bureaus of the state are get
ting results. At this time 1 shall-ap- :
prec?ate advice, comment and pub
lication you can jrive to aid such a
movement here in Edgefield. The
proposition can be made of little cost
or a great deal; that depends. Per
sonally, I prefer one with little cost,
attached to begin with and let this
grow. During my few years experi- ;
ence of agriculture work, I have seen
most accomplished where everybody ]
is behind the movement. And at
Edgefield where there is not an ac- j
tive Chamber of Commerce, this or-1
ganization is all the more needed; j
and such an organization will make ;
the agriculture work mean far more j
for our county. I again refer you to
a Farmer's Bureau for Edgefield.

County Agricultural Agent.
Missions and Temperance
Monday afternoon was the first of
the series of prayer services in con- 1
nection with the week of prayer at
the Baptist Church. 1
As it was the time for the regular J
meeting of the Woman's Christian '
Temperance Union, a joint meeting .'
was held, and an interesting program
was carried out. 1
The devotions were conducted by <
Mrs. E. J. Norris and an article ';
showing the ravages of the cigarette |
in China, sent by Rev. E. T. Snuggs <
jf Pakhoi, China and also the tcsti-,
nony of the international Reform j
Bureau of China, was read by Mrs.
Mamie X. Tillman.
Mrs. Rainsford read a niece from1 j
i missionary in China calling on the:!
menlo of America to prevent the ex- \ \
iodation of alcoholic beverages into j
..'hi ii a. j
Kev. R. C. Lee was present on in- j
citation of tile societies and made an ?j
listructive address on several ways ; j
n which intemperance is an obstacle Jj
o the progress of the gospel at home '
md abroad.
At the close of the meeting the col- j
ci tion for the French Orphan was j
lt was regretted that the further

he order for public gatherings.

County Agent Work for
One of the best things the county j
igent can do for a county is to push
;he pig and corn clubs. The placing ;
)f pure bred pigs by the banks a- j
nong the members makes the pig j
:lub work a complete success. The
lew County Agent, A. B. Carwile, j
wishes to get in touch with all the
the boys and girls between the ages
jf ten and eighteen who want one of
:hese pigs. Ile will visit the schools
for this purpose, but may overlook '?
some boy or girl. Send him your i
lame and address at once so he can j
ret busy to find you a pig. Also the ;
joys who are going to grow corn, i
mould send in their names.
The pruning interests of the coun- j
ty are now being attended. Also that j
af spraying for the San Jose scale i
ind grubbing for the peach borers.
Mr. Farmer, call on or write the i
:ounty agent if he can help you. . *
