Oconco Funner Took "Wolf Uiver'
Variety to Anderson.
Anderson Mail, 15th.)
The largest apples seen in Ander
son this year were brought to the
city Wednesday afternoon by a Mr.
Phillips, of the Long Creek section
of Oconee. He had about two bush
els of these very largo apples, some
of the select on. weighing as much
as 20 ounces, and all were unusually
large. This variety, the Wolf River,
seems to be an unusual species In
this part of the country and the own
ers of tile apples stated there were
only two trees of that kind in his
home section.
If these apples are the average, or
slightly above the average, it would
bo highly profitable for the apple
growers in this section and ot lier sec
tions of the State to raise this vari
ety. Tile fruit ls excellently formed,
the color ls a pale green with slight
reddish streaks over lt. Tho apple
mellows soon and has a very fine
grain with a slightly acidulous taste.
The tree ls a prolific bearer, having
as many apples as the ordinary vari
ety, while the fruit is much larger.
Article That Once Was in General
Cse is Now Hut Seldom Seen.
Time was when there was at least
one bootjack in every home, for in
those days father and son wore
boots, and when boots were wet or I
tight a bootjack was a necessity.
Then all of a sudden, some 50 years
or thereabout ago, Hie great major
ity of the men took to wearing I
shoes. Then in many homes the
bootjack passed out of use and out
of sight and out of mind, says the
New York Sun. There aro man;,
people of the present generation who
never saw a bootjack or even heard
of one. And still there are sold at
tile present day some bootjacks, for
there are still some men who wear
boots, either as their customary foot
apparel or at times in pursuit of la
bor or recreation.
There are still some fine old gen- ,
Cemon who continue to wear lire
calfskin boots. There are hundreds
of thousands of farmers who still
wear boots, but in the boots worn j
by farmers there has been also a ,
groat revolution. Where once they
all wore cowhide boots, now almost
without exception they wear rubber
boots, and If they buy the socks In- I
tended to be worn willi them the!
rubbor boots pull off easily and there
is no need of a bootjack.
The original bootjack was made
of a strip of wood a foot or more In
length by three or four Inches In
width and an inch or so in thickness.
You sawed out a deep notch in one
end of this piece of wood, or you
rounded out liiere a deep opening
to put (lie heel of the boot into, and
a little back ol* this notch you nailed
across the under side ol' tho board al
cleat to raise that end of tho boot-!
jack off the lloor. Then you put one ;
fool on thc bootjack at the end on
the door and you put the other heel
in ibo bootjack's jaw and you pulled
in (hat fool to try to pull it out of
[he hoot. Many a man and many j
i boy bas had to do some right
imart tugging to get his boots off,

Milk Scales and Record Sheet.
Clemson College. Aug. 13.-Spe
cial: Few dairymen In South Caro
lina think of the cows In their herd
as any Uli.lg but cows. They feed
what they think the cow should have
and take what milk she gives as a
matter ol course. The modern dairy
man regards his herd as a market to
wilie li he carries his feed for sale,
and he expects to get the full market
value for his feed. Again, tho mod
ern dairyman regards each cow in his
herd as a special machine which must
do certain work. Every loom in a
cotton factory must work to its full
capacity If the factory is to pay its
owners a good dividend. Just so each
cow in tile herd must be watched
so as to see that she does her full
duty, lt ls a very easy matter either
to over-feed or under-feed a cow, and
a groat many cows In South Carolina
aro to-day being under-fed or over
The best way to study the herd is
to put in every dairy barn a record
sheet on which ls recorded every
pound of food the cow is fed and
every pound of milk she gives in re
turn. A good rule to follow is to
give a cow one pound of grain .'or
every three pound.; of milk. There
are times when this rule is n.it liest,
but lt can be taken as an average.
Some will say that it is too much
trouble to keep a daily record. To
these we say keep the record for two
days each week. This is far bolter
than no record nt all. At thc end ol'
the year the dairyman who has kepi
records for the ilrst time will have
many surprises, Ho will lind thal
what he thought were some of his
best cows did not pay him near so
well as some which he tbought not so
good. Ile will find that some of his
bord have been kept at a loss, while
others have just paid for their keep.
As examples, herds in this State
will be used. Herd No. 1 was kept
at a profit of $12 1 per cow. while
herd No. 2 was kept, at a profit of
$17 per cow. In another herd tho
best cow gave 250 more pounds of
butter In one year than the poorest
cow, and at a cost of only $S more
for feed.
These Illustrations simply prove
that unless the dairyman knows what
he gives his cows and what his cows
give him, he Is runinng a very un
certain business, and tho milk scales
and record sheet give a ver/ Hand
some return for the trouble lt takes
to keep a record. J. M. Burgees.

Health Good, Notwithstanding Gave
Whole Town Typhoid Fever.
Moorestown, N. J., Aug. 17.-The
picturo of robust health, Ellis Ken
sler, superintendent of tho David
Roberts dalry farm, the man tho lo
cal and State health experts declare
is tho "typhoid carrier" who has
spread the epidemic that bas Moores
town and Its vicinity in Its clutches,
with a fresh outbreak of ino disease
In four prominent families to-day,
told this afternoon of his fight to
make his the model dalry of Dur
llngton county.
As Kensler related how fate had
played him a cruel prank by making
that same dalry a hotbed for typhoid
Infection, farm hands were emptying
1G0 quarts of milk condenmned as
infected by the health authorities.
"1 don't know whether the asser
tion of the board of health that I
spread typhoid germs is true or not,"
said Kensler. "They probably know
what, they are talking about. It has
been my ambition to make this tho
best dairy in the country.
"'"I have done everything possiblo
to keep my catt lo healthy, dalry
clean and the surroundings sanitary.
The water we use in washing the
milk cans is far more pure than that
supplied to Moorestown residents, ac
cording to the board's own testi
lt was while working around tho
dalry, directing and occasionally
helping his men milk the twenty-six
cows, that Kensler, unconsciously ill
with typhoid, inoculated tho milk
with the bacilli, say the health au
Kensler said to-day ho could re
member feeling "half sick" two days,
but supposed he had a cold and did
not call a doctor. About this time he
was in the dalry more than usual.
Mis splendid care of the Roberts
dalry was known in .Moorestown and
brought the dealer who sold his milk
the best trade in the community. A
majority of the typhoid cases have
developed in what is locally known
as the "millionaire colony."
Refuses to 'Pake Vacation.
Kensler almost*wept when he said
his plight might rob him of his cus
tomers. A few minutes before he had
refused thc offer of a vacation from
his employer, David Roberts, whose"
own son Is Ul at his home here after
drinking the milk. Mr. Roberts
thought Kensler should have a rest
and a change to recuperate.
"I feel tiptop," said the young su
perintendent. "I'm too busy looking
after the farm, and this is no time
for a farmer to take a vacation.
Thanks just the same."
Tlie new cases to-day spread fresh
alarm among the citizens and result
ed In an order from tho health
board that all milk sold must first be
sterilized. Many patients are being
removed to hospitals in Philadelphia,
('amden and Mount Holly, as the
health authorities say each case is
likely to become a source of Infec
tion unless under proper care. Tho
new cases are practically under quar
ti nt ino.

ten liedlos Recovered,
Abernant, Ala., Au?. 14.-N'lnc
teen negro miners were Instantly
killed by an explosion here yesterday
morning at the Abernant Coal Com
pany's mines.
Seventeen had been taken out at
9 o'clock to-night.
Forty white mon and 18 negroes,
who were in the mine when the ex
plosion occurred, got out alive.
The explosion was in ontry No. 15,
1,200 feet from tho surface. The men
who escaped were further down in the
mine and were able to get past the
after-damp fumes. Three white min
ers, who were nearest the scene of
the explosion were sllgthly injured.
The force of the explosion was so
great that roof props, mining mate
rial and coal cars were demolished.
State Mine Inspector Nesbitt reached
the scene this afternoon and to-night
was unable to Rive the exact cause of
the explosion, hut thought a windy
shot had been tired In the pressure
of gas and dust. It was still very
dangerous to-night to enter the mino.
Itescue parties came from Jobas
Yoland and other nearby mining
camps. While they were soon organ
ized for work, their early efforts
were greatly hampered by the crowds
of distressed friends and relatives
about the mine.
The mines arc owned by the Aber
