S. CM as 2nd class matter.
Friday, June 2, 1922.
We are very much pleased to see!
the attitude of Mr. R. Y. Leavell in
the matter of making improvements j
at Rosemont. We reproduce his article i
from the last issue of The Observer1
and ask you to read it, and then we I
ask all the people of the community;
to cooperate with him and the trus-1
tees in the making of improvements;
in this sacred spot. We go about,
over the country a goo . bit and we:
have not seen a cemetery in any town;
the size of Newberry that is as poorly;
kept as our own Rosmont, and some-!
how we just believe that the people;
of this town would do something if
some one would just take the lead:
and press the matter, or rather we
should say, would just let the people
know that you were really going to;
do something. We have talked about'
making improvements at Rosemont;
for so many yeara and nothing much
has been done that the people de not;
feel that you are going to do any-:
thing but talk.
Mr. Leavell's suggestion is a good
one. Let us get the lot owners to- j
gether and map out some sort of,
plan for improving the place so far]
as Toade and walks and lots go, and]
we have no doubt that the money j
could be raised easily. The impres-i
- * 1 1 1
S10I1 got SDroau someuuw wai
trustees would not let you do any-i
thing if you wanted to do it, but we
do not read the letter of Mr. Leave!!;
' I
to mean anything like that. And Mr.]
~ Leavell is correct also that we must
think in thousands and not hundreds |
when we go to make improvements at
this place. j
Mr. Leavell, suppose you call a
meeting of the lot owners and the
trustees and let us see if we can not
get together and formulate some plan
and go to work to make the improvements
that should and could be made
over there. We understand that city
council is ready to help in the mak
ing of streets and driveways.
Then we should build a pavilion
over there that would be a credit to
the town, and build it out of granits,
Newberry granite, and make it a memorial
to our soldiers in the world
war and let a tablet be placed in it
with the names of all who gave their
lives for thes cause in the several
wars in which this country has been
Call the meeting, Mr. Leavell, and
let us all get busy and do something
and do it right now. No use to wait.
And then had you thought of the
small amount which is asked of Newberry
to help the Salvation army, and
that they will not ask for any more
for another year. Only $500. That
should be raieed the first day of the
, drive.
The commencement season at Newberry
college is on. It does not seom
as big an event to us as it did when
we were in the lot, but then no doubt
it is a much bigger event to the boys
and girls of today, than it was to the
boys and girls of other days. And
what all of us must do is to enter
into the spirit of the boys and make
a great event for them and for us
and for Newberry.
The most important office to be
filled The coming summer is that of
state superintendent of education. It
has to do with the big problems of
education and any one who gets the
idea that there it3 a big vacation in
this office will have to think in different
terms. It may be that the school
teacher has a summer vacaton and
the city superintendent of .other days
may have had a vacation but in this
day the state superintendent of education
nor the city superintendent
has any vacation and the teacher
should -be employed for the entire
year and the time is coming before
so very long when that will be the
rule. The teacher should be the
community leader and that leader
and worker is needed all the year
Mayor Cromer gives notice of a
drive that is to be put on to help the
Salvation aurny. Read the announcement
in this paper. Xot only that but
be prepared to help when the drive
starts. This organization is doing a
great work and a work that the
churches do not reach and they must
have help and encouragement in the
prosecution^ of the work.
Any soldier who saw service in the
recent war will tell you of the good
work and the great source of comfort
and relief the Salvation army
vorkere gave the soldiers over seas
and at home too when it was needed,
and we have heard a number of soldiers
say who saw service that when
first aid was needed some worker in
the Salvation army could generally
'be counted on to be right there with
the help that counts. Let us all get
busy and help in this great cause. It
will take only a small amount from
each one to count a great deal in
making up the total.
<S> <S>
<s> <s>
I stated to several teachers who
have the last month's claim in the
office unpaid that I could take it up
. immediately after the tax books
anrl the eountv treasurer
could make a report of the amount
to the credit of each district. I
asked the county treasurer the other
day about how long he thoagnt it
; would take him to make the credit to
each district and advise me the
amount, and he said that he did not
see how he could do it within less
than thirty days. Until I know how
much of the tax has been paid it will
be impossible for me to tell how the
district stands until I get this report,
and to avoid overdrawing the account,
it will be necessary for me to
: have the report. And then in the
districts where we are depending
largely upon the equalizing state aid
it is impossible to know how to check
until we get the report from the state
superintendent of education giving
the information as to how -much we
are to get from the state, and whether
it will be necessary for him to
scale the amounts allowed and approved
by his office. There is no one
to blame for this situation except the
demand from the people for the ex
tension of the time for paying tax.
I make this statement so that tesch[
ers and others who have claims
against the school district may know
just how the matter stands. I can
not help it, and yet I must avoid as
far as possible overdrawing the acj
count. There are several districts
; that do not depend upon state aid to
| run their schools, but they do dejpend
upon the collection and payment
I of the tax and until the tax is paid
| we do not have any funds with which
! to meet expenses. I will find out
I how the district stands so soon as I
| possibly can:.
f If I just could know what time it
! would suit the trustees to spend an
! hour or two I would be glad to have
' them all meet and let us talk over
the school problems and plan for the
! improvement of conditions. I have
been wanting to have such a meetlinnr
Knf T Kiivo Kppn insf a lit.flp
, afraid to call it for fear the trustees
' would not ..attend. But we must have
a meeting1 very soon and talk about
j and adopt some uniform system in
j several matters pertaining to the
! schools. I guess I will not attempt
j to have the meeting until the clcse
. of the fiscal year, June 30, and then
; we can know just how the ledger
stands and will know what to do.
j I attended the closing of the Little
i Mountain school on Monday evening
' and it was an inspiration to be there
and to observe the fine spirit of these
good people and the interest they
have in their school. I have attended
these commencement seasons dowr
at this school for many years and 1
always enjoy them. The correspondent
covers the occasion and I will not
undertake to go into details.
i Fridav ni^ht I will e-o to the closine
i of the Chappells school. This is one
of the rural schools in the county that
has a term of nine months and three
teachers. Kinards school also had a
nine months term. We have several
with eight months and I very much
wish that each school could have a1
lea>3t an eight months term and ther
have good teachers who do not minci
doing some work. And we can have
these things if we make up our minds
to have them, and it does seem to me
that the great importance of the
subject would arouse the folk to the
realization of the fact that these
schools are factories which are man
ufacturing the citizens of the future
and that it is of vital importance tc
the future of the state that a fine pro^
duct is produced, and that maney pu;
in the schools properly conducted ii
, the best investment that can be made
j I have requested the trustees of sev
eral districts to meet with me on Saturday
to have a brief talk abou"
conditions and to see if we can dc
anything to improve them.
Next Tuesday night the closing oj
the Pomaria high school will tak(
place. This is the first year for thV
school as a high school and there ha;
j been some fine work down here
The closing here is a little late this
year on account of the opening beinj
delayed last fall to get the building
completed. This will close all th<
schools of the county for the presen:
session. The work of getting read}
jfor the next session should now on-'
; gage the attention oi trustees. I pi
| request that all trustees be sure to
: make an effort to secure competent;
jand efficient teachers. The salaries gc
' we are paying now in comparison j
with former salaries are fine, and
really there should not be complaint
on the score of salaries by any of the sa
! teachers. Ana the trustees should a
jsee to it that the applicants that are 3S
, elected have state first grade certifi- ]
jcates and some experience. Let us or
jail unite to get more education for;^?
lour children for the dollars that we ,U(
fare paying. I shall be glad to co- \
operate with any of the trustees and
to give them what help I may be able n(.
if they desire it. I am going to in- j
sist upon a little lnoger daily sche-,sli
dule in some of the schools than we ar
bad the past session and a double;
.daily session is preferable. I1S

What Is Good Cream? Iq
Clemson College, May 30.?Many ca
people have the mistaken idea that in
order to make butter from cream the pT
cream must be soured before it leaves
the farm. The chief reason for this Sj
belief is the fact that practically everybody
has the notion that cream sj.
for coffee and ice cream purposes
must be sweet but that for butter t0
making it must be sour, and there
are actually people who believe that f
it is impossible to make good butter
from sweet cream. j0
S<5ur cream versus sweet cream.?
It is true that cream in a large masc
jority of cases is ripened (soured)
before it is churned, and while it is.
also true that this can best be done ^
at the creamery, it does not necessa-'
rily mean that the farmer is compelled
to keep his cream sweet in or- 4>
der to ship it away to a creamery. j ^
However desirable it may be for
.creameries to receive only sweet of
Uream, there is often a practical ob- di
jection to be reckoned with and that ci
!s, where cream is produced in small in
quantities only, the expense of keep.
ing it sweet and delivering it'in that m
condition to the creamerv is too great T.
to justify its being done. The farm- 01
, er often finds it to his advantage to th
keep his cream clean and in a reason- Z;
i ably good condition even though it P?
may be slightly sour before it is ship- th
ped and sell at a slightly lower price, ai
The creameries have no particular th
objection to such a method, because b<
it is possible to produce a reasonably C?
, good quality of butter from sour
j cream of good quality; .but it is abso- in
. lutely impossible to make the best al
! quality butter from dirty and impro- ol
Jperly cared for cream which has be- in
, come absolutely too sour. It is there- gj
. fore to the advantage of the produc- si
? er, say the dairy specialists of Clem-' "W
,*sno college, to furnish to the cream-'g:
r ery a good quality of cream from tl
[ which the creamery will be able to ti
i make a much better quality of but- ci
[.ter, sell it for a much higher price, m
.land therefore return a better price to D
;'the producer. jg:
j Price depends on quality.?To il- ts
jlustrate, the price for which butter jc
.'sells depends upon its quality and o1
?iis generally based on butter scoring d<
92 points on a scale of a hundred, te
i! Within the last few years the differ- R
L'ence in price on butter scoring 92 ei
[ | points and butter scoring 87 points m
i j has been as great as 10 cents and ai
:jeven more per pound in favor of the w
i better butter. In addition to this, a
[jthe higher scoring butter finds ready m
market where the poorer qualities ej
; often go -begging. Another reason A
for producing a high quality dairy ej
product is that it will help to in- tc
crease consumpiton an J thereby in- ai
crease not only the demand bu: also Z
the price for the products wh-cn the e<
dairy farmers have to dispose of ana tr

: A Poultry Hint j ir
Clemen College, May 31.?"Watch g;
. the Feeding Utensils" is a suggestion t(
. of- more importance than most poul- le
11 try raisers realize. The wacer basins S
> are of great importance because ma- b
ny contagious diseases may be spread o:
through the drinking water. Wash 11
f and scald all water bys'ns once a ir
> week. Each morning when filling the J
; water basins, empty all the old water r,i
5 out, and rinse the basins betore re- c<
. filling. Place the basins well off the c]
5 ground so that the birds will not o:
r scratch straw and dirt into the wa- K
r ter. Locate the food hoppers so that w
i they will be perfectly dry at all t.mes. A
t Other important suggestions as to ' p
j good sanitation are: Jo:
1. lie sure thai the birds have 11
enty of fresh air. j n
2. Sunlight is a good germicide. t!
3. Clean yards are essential to I:
iod health. S
Silo Suggestions i JJ
1. In a silo all the corn crop is
ved for feed. When not stored in 'u
silo 40 to 50 per cent of the crop 2
lost. 1 tl
2. Silage has a beneficial effect n
i the digestive system and there- b
re is worth more than its feed val- a
; alone. In
3. Silage furnishes a succulent j
ed during the winter when there is C
> grass.
4. More feed may fye stored in a 1
laller space and at less cost than I
ly other way.
5. Silage is convenient to feed and j
a cheap roughage.
6. The silo can -be built during e
lly when farm work is slack. j a
7. The dairy farmer who waits c
itil August to think about build- s
g a silo usually does not have one. t.
8. Join with your neighbors to >'
jy a silage cutter.
9. If a concrete silo is built it n
iould stand at least a month after b
impletion before being filled to in- n
ire proper setting j0
10. Ten milk cows or their equi-.
ilent in young stock?two yearlings s
jual one cow?justify a silo. jc
* T ?J v!VvkAM nnr\D 0
11. Japanese seeucu nuuuu vanv
akes nearly as good silage as corn.'c
n most lands a greater tonnage of v
me is secured. :*
12. Corn should be about fodder c
llling stage when cut for silage. v
ane should be ripe enough to make 1
rrup. 1
13. Build silo in proportion to the;
ze of your herd. For ten to fif-1 _
n cows a 10 x 24 feet, for fifteen,
twenty cows a 12 x 28 feet, and
)ove twenty cows 14 x 30 to 36 11
* jx
14. You can build a home-made si!
15. The Extension service, Clema

on building silos. !
