Choosing the Best Instruction
for Music in Children.
t By Signora De Fabritiis
The opening of school again
arouses the interest for things edu
cational in the minds of thoughtful
parents for their children's present
and their future welfare; and of
equal importance to the choosing of
subjects in the elementary and high
school should be the choice cf what
branch of music should begin to
form part and parcel of the gTowing
child's equipment.
The study of music as a language
-whether its ultimate medium is to
be in the future the violin, the voice,
the flute, the cello, or the piano
should first start with the study of
pianoforte music-for in this way
does the child become familiar with
musical notation and trains the eye
and ear alike to distinguish and ap
preciate the value of tones in their
relation one to the other.
In no art is there more ignorance
and'misapprehension as to the value
of fine constructive teaching than in
t?at all embracing term "Music."
The teaching of music in its highest
sense, to a young child whose quick
sensitive mind grasps ideas and sug
gestions with little effort, should be
entrusted only to the very best in
structor that a city affords and one
a purse can compass.
It is a fallacy to suppose that "any
sort of teaching will do for a begin
ner." It is not true. It is a waste
of time, body and mind, to say noth
ing of money, for in no time of life
is the finest teaching more produc
tive of real result than in the first
years of music study.
.Give your child the best. Count
the expense of his or her musical
'education not last but first on your
list of absolute necessities; and in
choosing a teacher be guided, not by
hearsay, or economy in price, but
nfake as careful and deliberate a
choice as you would in choosing a
physician to help your child through
some taxing and difficult phase of
physical building.
Give your child music, and give
him to the very best teachers you
can afford. Let his first habits be
correctness and the future will yield
you glowing results.

One of the noteworthy additions
at? Bailey this year is a large wire
less receiving station which has been
added in the de?>a?tment of physics.
The station will have a recehing

A Fighter on Diet.
In these days of diet fads a word
from Jack Dempsey, world heavy
weight champion, on the subject of
what to eat, may not come amiss.
This is what he says:
"The only diet rules I have are
plenty of fruit, as much succulent
vegetables as I want, a good, well
lone roast of beef or veal once a
Jay and lots of green salads and
oads of olive oil. An occasional cup
>f coffee in the morning."
*By following this bill of fare
Dempsey keeps himself in the peak
sf physical condition every day and
ays the foundation to meet tremen
Iftiis strain upon occasion. His physi
training of course supplements
diet; but according to the cham
n, without care in the matter of
d, exercise and training are vain.
3 man," he says, "is in better con
on than his stomach."
The notable thing about the diet
ts simplicity and sanity. The meat
er might need variation for some
ividuals, but it is an ideal bill of
e for almost anybody, no matter
at his occupation or aspirations.

Argentine Buys Gr?ait
Telescope.
Cleveland, Ohio, Sept. 9.-Con
structed here by the Warner & Swas
ey Co., of the Argentine national ob
servatory, one of the largest tele
scopes'in the world will be shipped
to Cordoba, Argentina, from this
city. Designed to follow the motion
of the stars through the southern
hemisphere, it will be the largest
telescope in South America. It could
not be used in the northern hemis
phere because of its mounting.
At the time the order for the
giant telescope was placed, five
years ago, it would have been the
largest in the world. Because of the
war its completion was delayed and
now there are two others said to be
larger.
The telescope has a 60-inch re
flector. When set up it resembles a
gigantic howitzer gun. The tube is
six feet in diameter and 24 feet
long. A large forked iron support
rises from the concrete base and
holds the tube.
One hundred and fifty million dis
tinct astra: bodies in the nebulae of
the firmament can be detected
through the instrument, as compared
with 5,000 visible to the naked eye.
A camera attached to the telescope
has been shown in tests to be capa
ble of registering 25,000 separate
bodies on plates from a section of
the sky smaller than the moon.
The chief reflecting mirror of
the instrument weighs more than a
ton. It is five feet in diameter and
eight and one-half inches thick at
the central focus.
Delicate electrical control and star
setting apparatus complete the per
fectly-balanced mechanism of the
machine, which with all parts, weight
approximately 25 tons. A worm gear,
accurate i;o one-two hundred and
fifty thousandths of an inch is oper
ated by a delicate mechanism.
The instrument was designed by
E. P. Burrell, of the Warner &
Swasey company.
Headquarters to be Moved to
Spartanburg.
The state headquarters for the
South Carolina department of the
American Legion will be in Spartan
burg after September 15. Informa
tion to this effect was given out yes
terday by Luther K. Brice, recently
elected commander of the South
Carolina department.
Rooms have been secured in the
Andrews-Law building for the. es
tablishment i of the legion offices.
Miller Foster of this city, the new
adjutant, wi).l have charge of all de
tailed work of the legion at the^e
.offices. Miss Martha Jennings, sten
ographer, will be his assistant.
Mr. Brice stated that former Ad
jutant Ben M. Sawyer has been fin
ishing up detail work of the depart
ment since the convention in Aug
ust, at its Columbia offices.
Will Issue News Sheet.
An official news sheet of the
state's legion activities will be is
sued from the Spartanburg offices
each month, Commander Brice said.
This will be separate and distinct
from the publicity department,
which will be conducted from Char
leston by Ben Adams, recently op
pointed for this work. No separate
sheet will be published at Charleston,
but legion news will be distributed
to the various newspapers of the
state.
State Commander Brice will con
tinue his law practice at his office
in the law range on Magnolia
street.-Spartanburg Herald.
U. S. Pays Big Sum to War
Veterans.
Washington, D. C., Sept. 9.-The
.government is distributing about
?$600,000 a month in foreign coun
tries to men who served in the
American expeditionary forces in
France, Col. R. C. Forbes, head of
the War Veterans' bureau announc
ed. The bureau is mailing about 13,
00C checks, covering insurance and
compensations, to residents of more
than 70 foreign countries.
Director Forbes said about 5,000
checks are sent to Italy, represent
ing $200,000. Ireland receives 1,
400 checks, equivalent to $60,000.
Poland receives 1,175 checks, with
a cash value of $50,000. Canada
gets 1,180 checks representing $50,
000.
Countries receiving more than 100
checks include Denmark, Finland,
France, Germany, Greece, Holland,
Lithuaia, Norway, Sweden, England,
Scotland. Fifty or more checks are
forwarded to each of the following
countries: British ?West Indies,
China, Jugo- Slavia, Portugal, Rou
mania, Switzerland and Mexico, Al
giers,. Morocco, Esthania, Korea and
Moravia and represented in the list.

Weevils and Prices.
The proposal of Senator E. D.
Smith that the planting of cotton be
suspended one year in the United
States, with the object of elimina
ting the boll weevil, is to be consider
ed in the first place from the point
of view of effectiveness. Were the
suspension compelled and, subse
quently, it were proved that the boll
weevil had not been eliminated by it,
the South would have endured tre
mendous sacrifice to no profit.
The prognostications of scientists
are not invariably accurate. It will
occur to persons not versed in these
matters that suspension of planting
in small areas, say one county in
each cotton state, for a year or two,
before undertaking the grand exper
iment, might be wise.
Interesting to observe is that Sen
ator Smith approaches this proposal
from the point of view of the world's
need of cotton and the maintenance
of the American balance of trade
and not from that of cotton prices.
A crop of 990,000,000 bales selling
at 22 cents a pound, or $110 a bale,
would fetch $990,000,000. Were e
limination of boll weevils to make
possible a crop of 18,000,000 bales
and it should sell at ll cents a pound
or $55 a bale, exactly the same sum
of money would be produced from
its sale. Two and two equal four and
things equal to same things are equal
to each other. The principal result,
therefore, of doubling of the crop
would be the immense improvement
in the condition of the people of all
lands who are in dire need of cloth
ing and covering. Indisputably, the
destruction of the boll weevil in the
cotton belt would be a blessing to the
world but whether it would be a fi
nancial blessing to the Southern cot
ton farmers is another and different
question.
A phase of the problem that
should not be lost sight of is that,
soon or late, if the South fail to pro
vide the cotton that the world re
quires, it will be produced in other
parts of the world or substitutes for
cotton will be invented that might
reduce its market price. If the South
could permanently maintain its con
trol of the supply of cotton and the
production in the cotton belt could
be distributed in the same proportion
among states and individuals that
was obtained before boll weevil in
festation, it would be of little import
to Southern farmers whether they
produced 9,000,000 or 18,000,000
bales.
?"How-are you coming out this
year with your cotton crop?" a re
porter asked of a progressiver farmer
of Lexington county a few days ago.
"I shall do as well this year as I
would have done before the war
when cotton was selling at ll cents
-I shall make a half crop and the
price is 22 cents."
That farmer has, it should be re
membered, more land, more time and
more labor to raise hogs, forage
crops, fruits, vegetables and all the
other crops that may be produced on
South Carolina soil and with the
help of a beneficent South Carolina
eliminate.
It may be that Senator Smith is
looking forward to the danger that
boll weevils in the South will force
cotton production on a large scale in
other parts of the world. The cotton
growing world outside of the South
is susceptible of enlargement.-The
State.
What Co-Operation Means
The word "co-operation" is about
as common in farm journals and dai
ly papers as was the word "propa
ganda" during the war. Every far
mer ought to know what it means,
but not all practice what they preach
in connection therewith.
Co-opertion means the shrinking
of selfish, individual interest for the
general welfare of the community,
or for the association of individuals
organized for some specific purpose.
If the co-operative movement is to
succeed, there must be a broad, gen
erous innerprotation of the term.
Co-operators must be loyal to each
other and to their organization. If
their affairs should, by any chance,
be mismanaged, each individual
should hold himself partially respon
sible, and if convinced that the
plan of operation is correct, loyaily
support the organization and correct
past errors.
Co-operation, however, should be
given a broader meaning than just
loyalty to some organization. Far
mers should co-operate with mer
chants and bankers, seeking to be
helpful in making their community
a desirable place in which to live; as
sisting in making their community
prosperous in order that they them
selves can prosper. Co-operation
means being a good neighbor, a
friend of education and an active ex
ponent of the Golden Rule.-Farm

Enforcement of Law is Urged
by Dr. McGIothlin.
Declaring that the failure of
states to uphold the laws and guar
antee to citizens "life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness" is encour
aging further usurpation of state
rights by the federal government,
Dr. W. J. McGIothlin in an address
before the, Civitan club yesterday
pleaded for a law enforcement gov
ernment in South Caroilna. "Above
everything else," he said, "we must
have protection of the lives and
property of the people, and if the
states do not give it then the federal
government will."
Dr. McGIothlin reviewed the ten
dency toward centralization in the
federal government and the dimin
ishing sovereignty of the individual
states and explained that commerce
and inter-communication and added
international problems had be em
responsible for it. However, he de
clared, the inefficiency of state gov
ernment had also been a contribut
ing factor. The child labor law was
shifted to the federal government
because of the inability of the states
to curb the situation. The careless
and indifferent choosing of officers
had caused state governments to
function less efficiently than the fed

Poultry Raisers. W
Has Solved t
Memphis, Tenn.-This city has
taken the lead in showing the poul
try raisers of America how to get
more eggs from their poultry, how
to hatch more chicks and how to de
velop more of these chicks into ma
ture and profitable fowls. The lead
ership in this work for the benefit
of poutry raisers is generally cred
ited to Edgar-Morgan Co.-the larg
est feed manufacturing concern in
the South.
The poultry industry is one of the
most important and necessary as well
as one of the largest branches of
food production. But no other in
dustry is more wasteful, none is
more carelessly managed, yet it has
been found that the mistakes are
easily corrected by the right meth
ods of feeding.
One of the greatest drawbacks to
success in the poultry business is the
moulting period of six to eight
weeks when mature fowls are shed
ding their old feathers and making
for themselves a new dress. The hen
works much harder to make feath
ers than she does to make eggs, and
while she is making feathers she
stops making eggs.
The vital elements in feed which
make the complete egg are the same
elements which, the hen requires to
make feathers. During this feather
making procesa her egg-making or
gans are greatly weakened. As a re
sult, the average hen requires sever
al weeks to get back into laying con
dition after she has made her new
coat of feathers.
During this entire period, which
may be as long as three months, the j
owner must feed his hens. Therefore, I
he sustains a double loss-the cost)
of feed and the loss of eggs which
the hen would have laid had she been |
proneirly nourished with |the right!
kind of feed.

he Problem.
The Edgar-Morgan research de
partment has studied this problem
for years. The experts in this depart
ment have made thousands of tests
with different kinds of feeding ma
terials in poultry and other fowls of
every class and breed. They have
found that the elements which were
lacking are vitamines, Iactones and
certain proteins of recent discovery.
These necessary ingredients are
found in dried buttermilk and other
feeding materials in proper combi
nation to make a perfectly balanced
ration. This ration is easily obtain
able from ./Happy Feed Stores
throughout the country. It is known
as "Happy Hen Buttermilk Mash."
Happy Hen Buttermilk Mash sus
tains the hen durf.ng her moulting pe
riod, and it supplies her with the ex
tra amount of reconstructive vita
mines which keep her egg-producing
organs in good condition.
The new method of feeding to in
crease poultry profits includes Hap
py Hen Buttermilk Mash, fed in
its dry form, and Manna Hen Scratch
Feed, fed in a pile of litter. These
two feeds, when fed together, form
a perfect balance and maintain the
health of the hen at all times. This
is the right combination of feeds and
the method of feeding them has
proven to be absolutely right.
Millions of back-yard flocks in the
towns and cities can now be main
tained at a profit. Farmers and com
