loung Moa Not Taking Advantage of
Fine Opportunity Offered.
An Intorosting vacation, filled with
pleasure, educational and entertain
ment luaturos and all kinds of ath
letics, as Well as army instruction,
with all expenses paid, ls the offor
made to tho young men of South Car
olina who will attend tho citizens'
military training camp at Camp Mc
Clellan on July 27th to August 26th,
and yet only 28 per cont of South
Carolina's quota has boen Ailed. Our
young mon do not soom to realize
that this ls not an oM-fashloned
army camp, or surely, as in 'Florida
and other States, tho quota would be
Tho object of the citizens' camp
is to train young men in order that
they may bo of greater sorvlce If an
emergency arises. However, any man
who attends camp will not bo re
quired to join the reserves or na
tional guard or anything else unless
ho so desires.
No previous military experience is
required, and any boy 17 years of
ago may apply for admission to tho
"Red" or elementary course. Men
who havo had oxperionco will be
admitted to the "white" course for
non-commissioned officers, or tho
"bluo" course, which trains men for
commissions. Men who start tholr
work this summer in tho "red"
course can take the advanced courses
in succeeding years.
Young men will benefit greatly,
both mentally and physically. The
work ls endorsed by some of our
most prominent citizens, and every
ono Who has tho timo should at
tend. If our young men permit our
Stato's quota lo be filled by another
State, what will bo tho result? Ono
thing sure: If South Carolina's
young men who can attend camp und
get their commissions, and rio not
do it, they certainly will not
becomo officers, and In case of an
emergency they will bo taking or

lt will bo much better for men
Who arc not yet settled for life to go

their commissions and bo ready for
something worth while in case of an
emergency than it will be to walt

Interstate Commerce Commission Is
sues Orders Effective July 1.
Washington, May 24.-(Reductions
in freight rates averaging about 10
per cent were ordered to-day by the
interstate Commerce Commission in
a decision resulting from its inquiry
into tho general rate structure of the
na lion.
The commission's rate cut was
mado horizontally and removes a per
centage of the general increase that
was given to all railroad rates In
Th? cut In froight rates was fixed
by tho commission at 14 per cont in
eastern territory, 13^ por cent in
western torritory and 12 % per cont
In the southern and mountain Pacific
territories. All reductions ordered
aro effectivo July 1, and constitute a
grouter cut than was gonorally ex
The commission in ordoring tho
decreases-which aro on a horizon
tal basis - asserted that thc
railroads aro entitled to earn 5%
per cent on the value of tholr prop
erty rather than the approximate 6
por cont, under tho transportation act
of 1020.
Transportation charges on passen
ger travel and Pullman charges wore
loft unaffected by to-day's decision.
Explaining tho reason0 for adopt
ing tho horizontal method of reduc
ing freight rates, tho commission
said that while alterations in price
levels had unequally affected differ
ent commodities, "tho needs of com
merce cannot bo niel If rates are to
flticluato with market prices of com
modities." UH conclusion was that
"reductions should bo made gonor
ally upon all commodities in sub
stantially equal rallo."

Dear Club Members :
Tho recent publicity given through
the press to tho food poisoning cases
caused by the consumption of home
can ?ed products makes'lt imperative
that the greatest caro and every pre
caution must be usod for canning
foods in tho home and for market.
Wo do not intend for any cases ot
batulinus or ptomaino poisoning to
occur from canning done among our
members. Such disasters havo not
yet arisen, and wo MUST maintain
our record. Therefore wo issue the
1. Poisonous compounds aro often
formed during the process ot decom
position of foods rich in protein by
tho action of certain bacteria. It ls
of tho utmost,importanco, therefore,
to uso for canning only such moats
and vegetables aa are known to bo
absolutely fresh and clean.
Occasionally pcoplo aro found who
think tho high temperature used in
tho canning of food will make them
safe and even wholesome, although
putrefaction has begun. This ls ab
solutely false. While certain disease
producing bacteria will bo killed by
the canning process, still meat, un
less it is fresh and from animals ab
solutely healthy and in prime condi
tion, and vegetables unless they aro
fresh from the garden, should never
be canned. The condition of canned
food when the can is opened should
be carefully noted. There should bo
no bad odors.
2. Practico great care in handling
and preparing products for canning
and work very quickly.
3. Adhere to rules recommending
temperature and timo necessary for
safo processing as indicated in your
time tnblo (Farmers' Bulletin 1211,

tables, pages 49-50; Farmers' Bul

quickly as possible after processing.

Spray Grapes for Fruit.
Clemson College, May 27.-If you
would have lino grapes instead of
diseased, poorly developed ones,
spray with Bordeaux, say tho horti
culturists of Clemson College.
Where diseases have caused seri
ous trouble tho preceding season,
make tho first application before the
buds open, the second application as
soon as tho fruit is sot, and addi
tional applications every two weeks
until fruit begins to ripon.
Whore diseases have not caused
serious troubl? or loss In the past,
three applications will bo sufficient.
In this case thc first application
should bc rondo after the fruit is set,
the second three weeks later, and the
third and last just before the grapes
begin to ripon.
Uso Bordeaux mixture as follows:
Four pounds of copper sulphate
(bluestone), four pou.ids of quick
lime, fifty gallons of water. Make
according to directions given below:
Place tho lumps of limo in a vessel
ard slake slowly by using small
quantities of warm water until the
slaking process has boon completed
and all of the lumps thorottghly dis
se, ved. 'Dilute to make 25 gallons.
Dissolve tho bluestone by placing
in a cloth sack and suspending in
a few gallons of water (one gallon of
water per pound,of bluestone), and
dilute to make 2 5 gallons. Use only
wooden or earthen vessels to mix or
dissolve tho bluestone in.
Make tho ?Bordeaux mixture by
pouring together through a sack nt
tho same time equal parts of the
limo and bluestone solutions.
For small quantities uso: Blue
stone, four ounces; quick lime, four

Practico Contrasted with tho Ship
ment of Cream from Parin.
Clemson College, May 20.-Since
thc introduction of the creamery sys
tem of butter making into the United
States, the practice of making butter
on tho farm nas gradually decreased
and a marked change has taken place
in the marketing of the product. Tho
farm-made butter of to-day, instead
of being shipped to the large mar
kets, ls consumed largely at home
and in the near-by towns or is ship
ped to renovating factories. But In
spite of those facts, a considerable
amount of butter is still made on the
Tho farmer is, of course, Interest
ed first and last in obtaining the best
prices for his product. If the product
is to bc turned into butter, ho must
either churn tho cream at home or
ship it to the nearest creamery.
Which shall it be? Tho better the
quality the greater will bo tho de
mand for the product, so that lt ls
of advantage to tho farmer 'to get
butter of tho highest quality placed
on tho market. Can bo do this on
tho farm?
Under average farm conditions tho
farmer is not as well equipped to
rr.ako a high grade product as is tho
creamery. \Ho cannot produce a uni
form product, a very noccssary fea
ture. On the other hand, it is a sim
ple matter for him to produce a good
quality of cream at practically no
extra cost, and tovdeliver it to tho
cicamery in good condition, says W.
.1, Keegan, extension dairy special
ist. Onco in the hands of tho cream
ery In good shape, a first class butter
is assured, and this will holli to In
crease consumption and doman'd, and
thcroforo automatically tho farmer's
profit, resulting in a double benefit.
Furthermore, tho shipping of cream

Insure a high "quality" product " aro
Anding tho demand for their butter
and tho market pri?e of it ia very
satisfactory. Producers and manu
facturers of low grade butter have
no just complaint regarding tho de
mand and market price of their pro
duct, for they are reaping that which
they are sowing. .More than this can
not be expected.
There ls no product of the farmer
on which he gets as much of the con
sumer's dollar as ho gets on his but
ter made in a local creamery, thanks
to the present system of Marketing.
.Hut. the farmer must realize that tho
quality of butter, and therefore de
mand, consumption and price, de
pend first on the quality of tho cream
which he ships to the creamery.
Why, then, should tho dairy far
mer go to the trouble of making his
own butter on tho farm, thus getting
into competition with the high qual
ity croamory butter?
