Cotton and Cotton Seed Meal.
Farmers are interested at present
in regard to their cotton seed, and
it would be well for Hiern to write
to the U. S. Department of Agricul
ture at Washington for Farmers' lllll
letin No. 1179, which is a now lui 1 -
letin dealing with the feeding of cot
ton seed producta.
Several feeding tests have indi
cated that one pound of good quality
cotton .seed meal is equal to nearly
two pounds of cotton seed as a feed
for fattening steers. Largo rations
of cotton seed tend to produce
scours, but when used in quantities
up to flvo or six pounds thoro is lit
tle or no trouble from this source.
Cotton seed contain about 21 per
cent fat or oil and nearly 2 2 per
cont crude protein. Cotton seed con
tain about half as much protein as
cotton seod meal.
Experience has shown that cotton
seed products as a food for young
calves and pigs may result fatally.
The products may be used for some
time without visibly harmful effects,
but their continued use may prove
fatal, lt is well to use sparingly to
young calves and pigs, lt is less
harmful to oidor cattle, but when fed
continually for long periods, in large
amounts, it may also prove harmful
to thom, lt ls well to guard against
Cotton seed meal, fed in small or
moderate amounts, is constipating.
For that reason it should be used
with more laxativo feeds, such as
silage and bran. Its rational use with
a variety of feeds will overcome this

The Old Year
The winds that from the Northland
From regions of eternal snow,
At midnight now are chanting low
Their Miserere drear,
The while the Old Year, bent
Goes desolate upon his wa\?
A King without a realm to sway,
Like sad, discrowned Lear.
In silent woods low droops the ferniV
And seems for summer's flowers tay
But holly berries gleam and burn,
To grace the Old Year bier ;
And from the blue of heaven's exparf
The stars look down with pitying gi
And softened seems the radian
Of moon at mifJm^t^cle
The Old Year passes; lo! he stands
And watches Time's fast fa
i^ikc dying flames from d^ingl
That soon will quer?c?K^
And now a last flame fitfutliir^yvs
Its flickering light o'er wintry snows;
And lights the way the Old Year goes
To distant realms of night.
But while we stand, silent, devout,
O'er eastern hills, old Time's redoubt,
There comes a gladdening "Hail!" and sh
That brings to us new cheer.
For Twenty-One, both lithe and young
With meny peal from glad bells flung;
Has come with joys as yet unsung-[IE
A new King now is here!

jtf!jtfj? busy street, through o blur
^jfi^r of snowflnkes. Xt least,
Connie told hersoM deter

"lt's Merry Christmas
time," Connie said to her old yellow'
cat. "Who ever heard of Christmas
without tho Merry? So cheer up.
Prowler, and let's Join In the game."
At the little "Shoppe" Just around
thc corner she stood longest of all.
And all at once Into Connie's bright
evos came a speculative light. (The
window was full of small framed pic
tures, most of them with thc Christ
mas spirit. There were tho usual
night-clad children looking up brood
chimneys, there were landscapes of
snowy fields with dlstnnt windows
alight-Connie studied them all ; she
was seeing In vision the winding hill
road of the place where she had spent
her last summer vacation; the church
with Its swaying bell In the steeple,
the queer little bridge over the deep
and beautiful stream-a bridge with
seats along Ila sides where countless
lovers bad sat and courted. The old
ln#J?v who had been Connie's volunteer
hostess told ber, with the pink coining
and going In her withered cheeks,
about the lovers. For It was there
that ber own husband had asked, and
had been answered-his question. The
woy that Connie had chanced to visit
this beautiful country place and to
meet there the dear old lady was quite
remarkable chance too. She had
started out on the trolley car for one
restful day In the country and had
chosen this station at random. And
when she had stopped to admire the
wonderful roses In the old lady's gar
den-and they had spent some agree
able time together-the old lady. Mrs.
Martha Snow by name, had said :
"My dear! Why don't you come on
and visit me for a week or two? I'm
lonely for a young sweet fnce."
And Connie had gone, that was all.
Half her later water colors had been
glorified memories of that delightful
visit. Now Connie had a new Inspira
tion. She would paint the queer little
bridge over an Icy stream, and itf
seats should bc covered with snow
Sho could fancy Just how the tree*
would look waving naked branches
And she'd paint the church In the hoi
tow with lights.lu thu winduws gleam
lng over the snow nnd the bell in the
tower n-swnying for Christmas.
Oh, Connie wns very happy as shs?
hurried home to her attic, but there,
In the temperamental way artists 1
have, she beean to draw Instead,
working In a fever of enlhrft$asm- j
the sitting room of the old house
where she had been a guest, with
Martha Snow herself seated In the
firelight, Just half of her peaceful pro
file showing benenth Its halo of white
There was holly above the old fire
place and a boy's stocking hanging
there. Connie never stopped until she
had completed the picture, then ran
with It breathlessly to the "Shoppe"
around the corner.
"Yes, we will display It," a smiling
old man agreed.
The picture sold. Of course you
were prepared for that ; but the
strange pari was that before lt was
sold Connie had added her other views
to the "Shoppe" window, and her dis
cerning purchaser had bought them
every one. While the other Christ
mas studies pleased him not at all ;
Connie could not count the number of
times that she passed that window,
first closing her eyes childishly In the
hope that her picture would not be
there when she opened thom. And lt
was the day but one before Christmas
that tho "Shoppe" manager seeing her
peeking about, beckoned her Inside.
"You have pleased one of our best
customers," enid tho manager, "and
when we mentioned your peculiar con
dition of sale he suggested talking the
matter over with you that you might
both come to a satisfactory bargain.
Our customer thinks that you possess
wonderful artistic ability. We have
given him your address."
"Is he," asked Connie falteringly,
Mn philanthropist?"
Some way she did not went her pur
chaser to be Just a philanthropist and
spoil nil future ambitious hope.
"Mr. Armstrong ls a man who usual
ly drives a pretty shrewd bargain."
the "Shoppe" manager said.

Now that she looked nt him closely

his line eyes sorrowful beneath their

"Why," she said, "so you are Martha

A gr OOM with .Mr. Sanders, but Not in
Favor of Delegation Meetings.
Hattie Creek, S. C.. Dec. 22, 1020. j
l?dt tor Keowee Courier:
1 will ask you to publish my let
ter, as 1 wish to express my open
opinion on certain matters as thoy
exist to-day, according to my under
standing. My letter is not personal
to any one.
First, I want to thank Robt. M.
Sanders for his good lotter, publish
ed in The Courier, Dec. 15. I agree
with Mr, Sanders most heartily ex
cept as to the delegation meetings,
lt is well enough for our represen
tatives to confer with the people as
to their needs, for information only,
but when representative delegations
call meetings and take the sentiment
of the majority present on any issue
or matter of legislation, that major
ity does not represent the majority,
or the sentiment, of the masses of
the people of the county at large,
and if the representatives have that
voice of the few embodied into law,
it is not a representative law; lt
does not represent the needs and in
terests of the masses of the people.
It ls only representative of the dic
tates of the few speaking for the
many. It ls not the cool, deliberate
work of the delegation. Therefore
it could not bo representative law.
It is too much Uko a man getting
a Job and letting another man have
it, and do the work, -and the first
man getting the pay. As an example
I will refer to the Bond Issue Act
for good roads. That act ls one of
the sons of the delegation meetings,
and I certainly believe that foui
flfths of the poople are opposed to
that bond issue. The people wanted
good roads (and they surely needed
thom,) but they did not want all the
good roads piled up in one pile be
twoen Walhalla and Seneca, and a
few other places, and do without
roads everywhere else in the comity.
It will take twenty-five years to got
that little pile of good roads pain
for, and by that time poople won't
need any good roads. They will be
compelled by necessity, for lack of
roads, to bo doing tholr travel by
airship long before then.
In my opinion, the reason why so
few people attend those delegation
meetings ls that people think, when
a candidate is brought out for Rep
resentative, he is woll enough ac
quainted with the needs and finan
cial conditions of his county to know
what the poople need and want-oise
ho would not have offered hlmve1?
