It is a wise farmer who has already
determined to make ootton a Burplus
crop, after planting for full barns of
hog and hominy.
The ohild labor law enacted by the
last Legislature in this State is said
to-have a o?anse in it that will give a
loophole through which thc object of
the law can be evaded.
In some of thc counties in this
State the Supervisor lets out certain
sections of the roads by contraot to

the contractor receives no pay. This

Thc ruling of tho Attorney-General
that domestic building and loan asso
ciations must return all croditB, that
is, loans to members, for taxation, at
full value, will be a serious blow to
all the associations i^ \o State, if
thc ruling is enforced.
Senator Tillman delivered an ad
dress on the race problem last Wed
nesday night in Detroit, Mich., whioh
was received with alternate cheers
and hisses. He characterized some
of Sherman's army as "bummers,
chicken thieves and carpetbaggers."
The rates on cotton mill goods via
Charleston, [whioh have been the sub
ject of several conferences with tho
railroad commission on the part of
mill men and railroad authorities, have
at last been settled. This comes
about through an agreement between
the mill and railroad men, whioh is
satisfactory to the commission, and
whioh agreement will bo put into
effect in this State by the commission.

Editor Hugh Wilson, of the Abbe
ville Press and Banner, completed the
44th year since ho bought an interest
in tho Independent Pross, which was
afterwards oonsolidatod with the Ab

place and associated with one news
paper longer than any other editor in
the State, and is still hale and hearty,
and wields as vigorous, fluent pen as
ever before. We extend our congratu

The United States is generally re
garded as an agricultural country, and
the important part whioh the produots
Of our farina perform in supplying the
world with food, furnish a reasonable
basis for such belief. The report of
the last census, however, shows that
during the ten years ending with 1900,
the value of manufactures was nearly
double that of agriculture. The fig
ures are $4,750,000,000 for agriculture
and $8,370,000,000 for manufactures.
But the growth of the manufacturing
interests is neither inimioal to tho ag
ricultural interests nor independent
of them. Tho farms of the oountry
supplied over 80 per cent of tho raw
material used in manufacturing, while
tho mines and forests supplied lesa
than 20 percent. Agriculture ia there
fore, still thc supreme factor io Amer

upon which the development of tho
Within the past three weeks great
damago has been done to thc oat crop
in several of the lower counties of the
State by small green flies, called the
aphis or plat louso, and it is feared
that in some sections the crop will bo
wholly destroyed by the pest. Tho
insects attaoh themselves in great
numbers to the underside of the oat
blades and appear to suck the juice
from the plant. A field that is at
tacked has the appearance of having
been soorohed, and the oats are brown
and withered. The most discouraging
feature of the situation is that there
is no certain remedy for the evil, and
the entomologist at Clemson College,
to whom the farmers have appealed,
does not give muoh encouragement to
hope that means can bo found to de
stroy the pe it and save tho part of
the crop that has thus far escaped the
ravages of the pest. It is a very se
rious matter down there, and moans
a lox. of hundreds and thousands of
dollars to the farmers.

The sudden change in the weather
has retarded vegetation very much.
Gardens are very backward and the
farmers have simply "not been in it"

this year resembles 1883. when not a

A tine crop was harvested that year,
nevertheless, proving that sometimes a
bad beginning makes a good ending.

THE people of Anderson County are, as a rule, a most practicable and
sensible people. They consider it the part of wisdom to investigate well, not
only the quantity but the quality, of the values they receive in exchange for
their hard-earned monay. They have learned that it is poor business policy
to buy inferior Goods, even though the price is cheap. Their experience
teaches them that so-called Cheap Gooda are in the long ran extravagantly
This, in a measure, accounts for the gratifying growth of our business.
