Cotton go High if Embargo Off.
That all cotton would sell at good
prices if the embargo on the staple
were lifted, is the opinion of Bernard
M. Baruch, now attending the Peace
Conference at Paris, as expressed in
a letter to Senator E. D. Smith, who
was a visitor in Columbia Wednesday
afternoon. Senator Smith gave for
publication some quotations from the
In speaking of trade conditions in
Europe in connection with the Peace
Conference Mr. Baruch said that the
American economic commission at
Paris "has been trying for a long
time to increase the sales of Ameri
can products here and have b?en met
on every side with extreme difficul
ties, the greatest of which i's the in
ability to finance." He said that one
day a decision is rendered and the
next day it is withdrawn.
Efforts to Sell Cotton. . |
"Ever since I have been here," con-1
tinued Mr. Baruch, "I have been ac- J
tive in trying to get the European
people to take a large amount of cot
ton. My efforts have not borne much!
fruit, but something has been accom-1
plished. The Belgians have bought
and financed through England; how
much, I do not know. I am in hopes
of having considerable quantities tak
en in France and England. The
Czecho-Slavs want about 400,000
bales to be sent to Prague. It is sim-1
ply a matter of credits. I feel certain j
that if the embargoes would be lifted, i
that all of the cotton could be sold at
good prices. Every day's delay makes j
a great difference to the poor South- j
ern farmers and merchants who have !
been carrying the load without the
protection the wheat growers have. |

many reasons why I feel a great sym-1

"He has commanded the respect ;
and admiration of everyone. His pow
er of argument, his courteous ard
calm manner, his firmness and his un
faltering courage have easily made
him the leading figure in the confer
ence. Furthermore, if we are to get
any kind of a peace soon, he must re
turn immediately."-Columbia Rec-1

A preparation now made and put
on sale in this locality recently, to
prevent punctures to automobile
tires is offered for sale by Mr. J. G.
Alford. The poods is known as "Col
lins Rappid Sealer," and is sold under
a guarantee to do just as claimed.
?ir. Alford, before taking .the a

vestigations and was advised by
others who had used the goods for a
bout L'.VO years, that it would un
doubtedly prove very satisfactory to
everyone that used it, as had been
On another page in this issue of

Mr. Alford has had the goods in his

has proved more than satisfactory to
him, he has driven nails in his ?ires
to show the people just how it will I
seal punctures without losing air and
still he rides on the same tires every
day \>ith no patches to be made.
When Others Prosper.
Farming is one of a very few oc
cupations that gives more than it i
promises. The young man who selects |
?farming as his life-work may not ac- j
j cumulate as money as he expects, but !
? if he prepares himself for his work !
! and makes the proper use of his op- :
jportunities he will get more in health,
j contentment and happiness than he:
: expected. It is true that many failto j
get these, but generally that is be-j
! cause they do not care for such
things and thus make poor use of
their opportunities to obtain them.
No occupation can advance the in
terests of the state and nation faster
than farming where large crops are
I profitably grown and choice livestock
iare raised. It is a business where no i
?one is injured because you prosper, ?
?but on the contrary, your prosperity j
advances all legitimate business. The ;
production of food is of paramount ;
importance to all trades and indu?
ustries, 'and he who produces that
which sustains human life and pro- j
j motes human efficiency is a true ben
efactor. The time has come when the j
producer will be duly appreciated:
and he will be amply paid for efficient ?
service.-Farm and Ranch.
Forage Crops and Pasture
*Clemson College, March 1?--Two
publications of the Extension Service
are timely "just now in connection
with the increased abd increasing in
terest in all kinds of live stock in
South Carolina and the reduction of
the cotton acreage. These are Ext?n^
sion Bulletin 32, "Forage Crops in
South Carolina," and Extension Bul
letin 33, "Permanent and Temporary
The first of these contains in
structions which should help to solve
the stock feeding problems of the
time and to suggest the wise use of
some of the fand left from reduction
of cotton acreage. Due'consideration
is given in this bulletin to the double
value of the various legumes as for
age crops in furnishing excellent
feeding values and in enriching the
Thc second publication deals with
the necessity of good pastures, soil
requirements, preparation, how to
plant, and instructions how to secure
best results in making pastures with
the several pasture grasses.
Both bulletins are by W. R. Elliott,
formerly a district agent of the Ex
tension Service, who is an authority
on such matters. They are free, as
long as they last, to all who ask for
Drifting away, drifting away,

Soon our life on this earth will be
And we will be called to another

Saviour, in that home above?
Have we so spent our life while so
In a pure and noble cause,
And if our dear Saviour should call
Us on the brea'k of morn, could we
answer the call
In that bright home above?
I hear my Saviour's voice,
He is calling me home.

I shall soon join that happy band
Of departed loved ones,
And rejoice around His throne.
