Cotton observed by tho writer all
along the way to Columbia recently
looked worso, If anything, than cot

ties. It scorned that much land was
abandoned, and many weeds flour
ished in that which was supposed to
bo worked. The wet weather seems
to have been very general over a
great part of the cotton belt.
Shall Oconco Have a Fair?
.It seems that all near-by counties
have county fairs, and with the groat
diversity of agriculture posslblo In
Oconee, that we should have one
also. Agriculture will bo moro di
versified than ever with tho coming
of the boll weevil, and that ls one
of tho strong points about fairs
the actual products of the region
may he SEEN BY A L-L.
If action on tho matter of having
a fair is taken in time there are plen
ty of products for exhibition.
J. S. Abbott, of Walhalla Routo 1,
has done some wonderful breeding
work, and has a fino stallion to ex
Coke S. Campbell, of Seneca Route
2, has a fine herd of registered Hol
stein cattle which would also look
good on exhibition.
I. Fate Lee, of Walhalla Route 1,
has an "AU-Puro-Bred Farm," hav
ing nothing put pure-bred 'Jersey
cows, a pure-bred bull, pure-bred
hogs, pure-bred chickens, and possi
bly tho hound dogs are puro-brod.
Many other farmers in the county
have line pure-bred animals and also
Homo wonderful crops to exhibit.
WI HOM TOWN will work for the
fair? There should bo a building
guaranteed the exhibitors, suitable
livestock pavilions or arrangements,
and a guaranty of su dicion I prizes to
bc awarded winners in each depart
In tho matter of amusement there
might ho n foot-ball game arranged.
A carnival may not be needed, as
lhere may not be that much extra
money to spend this fall.
(?rows Fino Strawberries.
K. 1>. McDonald, of Richland, is
probably ono of tho most successful
strawberry growers in this section
of the Stato. Ho states that last year
ho gathered $$0.00 worth of tho lus
cious rod herries from' one-eighth of
an acre, ant) he will continue gath

The variety planted is a rare one. re

?farmer living near Easloy. Thc va
riety is now called tho "Harrison
Karly." Somo vines were observed
last week that would produce about
a-quart apiece during tho week, and
ihoy had already boort hearing about
?eighty days, Mr.MeDonald slated. Ile
lois one acre of this variety now.
Much Rot on Fruit??

On grapes and apples Bordeaux
mixture should be used, the formula
being 4-4-50, or lu smaller quanti
ties 1-1-12%? meaning one pound of
quicklime, one pound of bluestone,
12% gallons of water. The Hmo and
bluestone are gradually dissolved
with one-half to ono gallon of water
each, and then diluted separately to
6 V* gallons apiece, then poured to
gether at the same time Into a third
vessel, stirring vigorously, \yooden

The bluestone will dissolve better

Ho You Want Peas?
Those persons wishing lo buy somo
Clay pens now for sowing may group
orders through the County Agent at
a saving. A farmer In Alabama has
several hundred bushels for sale at
O-^tfiftftneh iTbjB freight -will
be about 30 cents p?r 'bushel, mak
ing the delivered cost about $1.80
per bushell. Any . pecson wanting
these peas should make check pay
able to "Cowpeas Account," Bank of
Walhalla, enclosing check with or
der for the full amount. 'This should
bo done at once. More peas should
be sown this year than ever before.
Many Cans Ordered.
There should be no scarcity of
canned foodstuffs In Oconee county
next year, judging by the fact that
a Westminster dealer recently order
ed 40,000 cans-a solid carload
to supply the cannera' of the county.
If theso cans aro all used there
should be a smaller amount of money
to send out of the county next year
for canned foodstuff.

County Agent.

Tho civil service commission in
vites special attention to tho fact
that in an examination held recently
in several cities throughout tho Uni

partmental service, applicants were
not secured in the number desired,
and that this examination will be
