Tho Tugaloo Tribune of last week
tolls the following very Interesting
"J. Miller Davis, of Westminstor.
Route ?, wants vhis neighbors and
friends to help him light tho boll
weevil. In fact, ho wants every far
mer to help him. Ho does not want
them to light with bayonet and bul
let, but with v.tcol plows, horses and
mules and grain.
"Wo know you will agreo with us
ia saying that Mr. Davis deserves this
help when we tell you he has sown
ninety bushels of oats, ten bushels of
rye and eight bushels of wheat. And
wo feel sure you will agree with us
again whon we say Mr. Davis is a
farmer with a vision."
Mr. Davis is ono of the mon of Oco
neo who have gon* at "blazing the
trail" to prosperity and to boll woevil
extinction in ^io right way. Small
grain crops planted in tho fall, and
cover crops on ovory available acre
in tho spring not actively engaged in
making some necessary crop that
requires clean cultivation, will do
moro toward boll woevil extinction
than all tho calcium arsenate, dust
or liquid form, that ono can uso on
tho growing crop of v ttton if small
grain and cover crops are neglected.
Mr. Davis is doing tho right thing.
His neighbors may not follow bis ex

they had.

lt has recently been decided to put

work among tho unfortunate chil
droll of our State. Clovernor Harvey j
lias recently visited the institution, j
and ho left with V broader view of
the great work being accomplished
hy it. Writing to Rev. Spaulding af

nor Harvoy said:

A few years ago tho Econon y ;
Home was launched with a few;
unfortunate children - young boys :
and young girls whose mothers bad i
been taken from them by tho baud j
ol' death, lt is not always the case,
that both parents of the children ere
dead, but often tho absence of tho j
mot her from the home croates a sit
uation where the father is unable to
give tho proper attention to bis chil
dren, especially if they aro girls, ai d
the instil ut ion at King's Creen is of
such a nature that many young lives
I may be saved for tho homo and tl o
j State, where otherwise they might
j becomo tho prey of those beasts of
low mentalty and perverted morality
whose aim in life is to wreck lives
instead of seeking to make brighter
homes and contribute to the building
np of a stronger and purer woman
Rev. Spaulding gave a strong illus
tration of the nature of the work at.
King's Creek when he said that tho
institution is a "savatory," not a "re
formatory"-in other words, that
the young-especially tho girls-are
taken in and cared for, taught Ibo
right way in which to go-trained
for (be better life -saved from sin
and the "beasts ol' prey". rather
j than seeking to reform wayward and
sinful women in biter years, which
would often be the necessary course
in many cases were those young girls
left to their own devices during the
years that aro so important in the
formation of character .
Something of the growth and mag
nitude of the work may ht! learned
from Hie fact thal at tho present
?Hiere aro ,".7,", young boys and girls
1 hoing trained and their characters
moulded al King's Crook to-day. The
ages ol' these wards of Ibo institu
tion range from two to fourteen
years. There is no limit as to -ago.
the chief consideration being the im
mediate needs of the individual.
Kev. Spaulding appeared here be
fore the mooting of the lea ch ors of
Oconco, and it is probable that the
work in our county will have ils be

Beneficiaries of tho Wool Tariff.
Hero aro some ligures concerning
tho 33-cents-u-pound tariff tax on
clean wool, wort li knowing and re
membering. They aro supplied by
Senator David I. Walsh, Democrat,
of Massachusetts, who obtained them
from the Federal Tariff Commission.
According to tho tariff commission,
the public treasury will gain about
$:::?.OHO.Ooo a year, while tho domes
tic wool growers, headed by Senator
Gooding, Republican, of idaho, will
gain about $ 10,(10 0,000 a year.
According to tile Curded Wool
Growers Manufacturers' Association
the 3 3-cont tariff tax will amount to
$1 a pound on tho finished garment
after passing through tho hands of
the middlemen. This means a tax on
consumers of $200,000,000. a year.
If no other form of profiteering is
injected into thc transaction, this
will mean an increase of $2.50 on an
ordinary suit of clothse, $3.50 on an
overcoat and $5.50 on an ulster.

ful Occasion Held Annually.
Editor Keowee Courier:
It was a distinct pleasure to mo, as
an invited guost, to participate in the
festivities of tho recent annual re
union of the Alexanders and other
friends -and relatives, to be with
them on the 27th of October, on
which day they always assemble.
Just to think-In tho 40's and 50's I
ns we turn tho dusty leaves of the ;
old time calendar, for 70 years or,
moro, most wonderful to think <> |
this Alexander reunion has occurred
at the original old and memorable
homestead, which is now moro than j
ono hundred years old. It was my
groat pleasure, when a barefoot boy, I
in 1852 and 1853, with my old Blue-1
Hack Speller (all 1 had at that time)
to attend school at tho old log school
house with tho Abbotts, Alexanders, '
Heeds, Adnirs and other boys and
girls in our happy school days of tho j
long, long ago.
The old Alexander home, which is
standing to-day as tho silent sentinel
and an aging marker of tho builders
of that loag-ago time, is covered with .
evergreen, clinging vines, which still
cling to tho old rustic chimney as if I
?rasping lovingly tho sacred memory
of Hie past ami tho loving hands that
fir^t planted them thoro."
I sometimes sit and wonder, as wo
pack life's fruits away,
Aud hoard them in tho cellar, for tho
bleak and wintry day,
When tho mind of man has never
tried to store a stock of cheer
In the cellar of his memory for tho
barren limo of year.
In the year of lSf>2 or 1S53-In
August of that year-I spent my first
night in this memorable old pino log
house. I was going to school at tho
old Josh Perkins old Held school
bouse. My schoolmate, John H. Al
exander, was my chum. Tie was a
man over six feet tall, about 2 5 years
old, and I a boy of eigbt. years. Wo
were always fast schoolboy friends.
John A. would have mo to go homo
with him, as school boys used to do.
II was quito a long walk, and John,
ia tho goodness of his kind heavt,
backed up near an old stump, and
said, "Sam, climb up on my back and
I will carry you some," I did so, and
bo had me astride of his shoulders
as though I was a Confederate sol
dier's knapsack. We slept together
in that old pine log house, as school
boys used to do. He was a fine and
handsome man-very black hair and
blue eyes and complexion fair. Thai
fall, or the next, ho went to Missouri,
lived there a number of years, took
California gold fever, pulled out for
that State, and lived and died there.
He never carno back to his native
State of South Carolina. Ho loft, a?
1 learn, two lino daughtors, who nro
very wealthy and well-to-do. All of
which I am glad to know.
I went to this old school houso at
Conoross with Miss Marth, Lovoy,
Newton and Joseph Alexander. The.
only ones now living, as I learn, are
Mrs. Martha Alexander Gibson ind
Newton Alexander. My brothor, W.
H, Dendy, taught this old Conoross
scbool in 185S and 1851. Others who
went to this school at that limo were
Mrs. George Leathers, who was a
daughter of tho lalo Alfred Adair,
and Rev. W. W. Abbott also wont to
Hus school, and tho writer.
A largo crowd had assembled to
comm?mora to this annual reunion.
There is a long rustic, old-time table
which was most bountifully supplied
with fruits. Howers and all tho good
things to eat that men and women
could assimilate. 1 learned that there
woro present live generations of the
original Alexander family. I am glad
to say that they aro very prolific,
which is lo the uplift of Stale and
church and school and society. May
they forever continuo thus.
II is a thing of variegated beauty
al this time of tho year, to stand now,
as I did in the years gono by. and see
thc beautiful old-gold of tho forest
that has lo some extent boen spared
by the great modern steam roller of
Perhaps my nleco, Mrs. Julia D.
Shnnklin, and I wore the only ones
present, at this grand convocation
who were not directly related lo the
Alexanders and their descendants
although lt would have appeared that
wo, too, were related, from tho un
limited, unstinted, kind-hearted hos
pitnlity bestowed upon us. She and
I most respectfully thank them all
for such loving remembrances as
worn extended to us.
While wo all enjoyed this fine and
congenial gathering, I must say that,
when I realized tho fact that many of
my life-long friends and Confederate
comrades havo passed away, my
throbbing heart aches with sadness
and sorrow. I weep with ihOSO who
are in distress: I rojotco willi tho
young and merry. 1 am so constitut
ed by my Creator, So please allow
mo to add a verse or two:
When Ibo golden-rod has withered,

Ibo cricket's prayers aro said,
In tho silence and the. shadow of tho
