"Where did you pick up thai man,

Many a time was the head book

Clemson College, May 20. - The
production of meat in South Caro
lina has always been less than tho
consumption would warrant, and IV
ls now necessary to Increase this
production because tho purchasing
power of many of the meat consum
ers has been greatly lessened on ac
count of tho present economic condl
t'ons. The sheep offers one of the
most profitable types of livestock
to make this increase, according to
L. V. Starkey, chief of tho animal
husbandry division, who thinks that
small farm flocks of about 5 0 owes
should be seen on many farms.
Sheep require less caro than bogs
and much loss range than beef cat
tle, and in a thickly populated State
of small farms, such as South Caro
lina, they should prove a profitable
source of revenue.
Wool and Meat from Sheep.
An average high grado sheep cnn
produce a flooco weighing from five
to eight pounds and raise a lamb
weighing'80 pounds in a year. If
necessary lt can live without a singlo
mouthful of grain, since our forago
crops and permanent pastures will
carry shoop the year round. Though
In this section of the country grain
ls scarce, forago crops and penna*
neut pnsturos may be choaply and
easily grown, and sheep will utilizo
these crops nt a profit. (In fact,
sheep have two important advan
tages over other classes of livestock.
They roquiro practically no grain,
and they destroy brush and bushes.
Drawbacks May Be Overcome.
It is quito truo that thoro are
many drawbacks to sheep raising,
sech as dogs, stomach worms, poor
fences, poor markots, otc., but tbeso
difficulties may bo ovorcomo. For

(Clemson Collego, May 19.-Many
inquiries and requests for Informa
tion regarding tho different classes
of machines for applying calcium ar
senate for boll weevil control aro be
ing received by the entomology di
vision, and Prof. A. P. Conrndl, on- '
toniologist, gives tho following lu- j
formation regarding tho matter:
Tho machinery for dusting cnlci
um arsenate for boll weovil control
is divided into four classes-hand
blower guns, mule-back dusters,
ono-mulo dusters and iwo-horso cart
Tho hand blower gun costs ap
proximately $1S.00 and has a capa
city of eight acros por season. It
piny bo used in smnll operations and
ls especially designed for use in con
nection with larger machines for tho ;
dusting of nooks and corners not ac
cessible lo horse-drawn machines. It ?
dusts ono row at a Hmo, is too la
borious to uso on an extensive scale
and as a rulo is not long-lived. Dut
besides lt? limited uso In dusting |
cotton, lt is a very useful article on ;
any farm for dusting potato booties,
cabbage worms, etc
Tho mule-back gun dusts two rows
and is generally very satisfactory ex
cept that great improvement is still
necessary in anchoring tho machine
solidly on tho mule's back. The ma
chine will cover successfully about
thirty acres per season and costs be
tween $55 and $G0.
Tho one-mule duster dusts two
rows, has a capacity for sixty acres
por season and costs about $120.
Tho two-mule machine or cart ma
chino dusts three rows nnd has a
capacity for about ono hundred ncros
per season. Tho price varies from
$215 to $290.
Lights aro not Included in tho
above specifications and must bo fur
nished separately. Tho farmer can
easily coiitrlvo some kind of lighting
arrangements for the hand blower
gun and tho mulo-back machine. For
tho one and two-horse machines
some people uso a .good engine head
light. Tho best form of light for tho
machines is tho corbie light, which
costs about $50. One manufacturer
has on hand a limited number of
these lights nnd is selling them ont
at $20.00 while they last.

In Windstorm - Dody Found, Life
less, After Storm had Pnssed.
(Tillaloo Tribune, ICtb.)
It W08 a groat shock to tlio com
munity to learn on last Thursday af
ternoon thal tho dead body of J. B.
(Palmor, Confederate voternn, was
found on tho highway known as tho
Davis bridge road on Chauga crook.
Mr. Palmer's home ls at. what ls
known as Hie old Elbort Davis place,
about half way botween whore T. R.
Davis now lives and Chauga creek.
J. M. Davis lives just across Changa
from whore Mr. Palmor lived. After
partaking of a hearty dinner Mr.
Palmer walked to Mr. TJavis's resi
dence to attend to some business.
While there a dark cloud began to
riso, and Mr. Palmor startod home,
hoping to got there bo?oro tho rain
carno up, ns it would bo such bad
traveling after tho rain. Alter tho
rein his body was found, cold in
death, and lying across tho road nonr
what is known as tho Walters farm.
His body had fallon in such manner
aa to have turned the course of tho
waler in tho deluge, and sand wash
ed into lils pockets, ills hat was
blown somo ono hundred yards from
bis body.
Tho verdict of the coroner's Jury
was that lils death was due to natu
ral causes, lt is supposed that Mr.
Palmor became fatigued by the walk
up the long hill and his heart gave
way. Another supposition is that he
might havo boon blown down by the
strong wind and drowned. He was
making an effort to get homo before
hoing overtaken by tho storm, nnd it
is natural to suppose ho was travel
ing ns fast as ho could, and a man
of His ago ls easily fatigued and over
come by weakness. There wore no
signs of foul play or having been
struck by lightning. Wo understand
death overtook him In sight, or al
most in sight, of his home.
Mr. Palmor was almost S7 years.
of age, having boen born Juno Gth,
1S35. His den Hi removes another
Confederate veteran.' Mr. Palmer
served with distinction through the
Civil War and was ono of tho pen
sioners of Oconoo. Ile came to West
minster week before last and had his
last pension check cashed.
For many years Mr. Palmer lived
near Walhalla, whore he owned ii
home and a small farm. Ho was
well known over tho county. There
are many who will deeply regret to
learn of his death. He was a fine ,
farmer and a good carpenter and
wood-workman. Malty of tho houses
In tho vicinities of Walhalla and Con
oross were built by him. Ho was a
hard and faithful worker.
(For tho past four years Mr. Pal
mor had boon living in* this vlcinitv.
He ls survived by three daughters
and ono son-Mrs. Georgia Ann Mc
Afree, of North Carolina; Mrs. Lou
Delchor and Miss Alothia Palmer,
and Charles Palmer, who are at tho
Palmor home. His wife died twelve
years ago.
The body was burled in tho Toxa

at 5 o'clock.
