The Herald and Xews has decided
to put on the greatest removal sale
known in the history of removal sales
in this town. We have not spice to
run the ad in this issue. All of those
who owed the paper could not take
advantage of the dollar sale we had
on in August. We knew it was a
bad time and those who really needed
to take advantage of that did not
feel that they could even put out tno
dollar at that time. The fall is now
here, and while we are not going to
put on the dollar sale, we will at
least give every one an opportunity
to get a very useful article in connection
wkh a subscription to The
Herald and News.
We have arranged with Mayes
Book store so that we will give with
every payment of two dollars, or one
year's subscription, either an aluminum
water pitcher or an aluminum
thermos bottle, or we will give you
two small aluminum molasses pitchers,
so that you may serve two kinds
of molasses at the same time, or you
can use one for milk.

These articles may oe seen a;
Mayes B">ok store right now, and the
sale will last for only two weeks, or
rather will clcsc on Saturday. Nov?

get our mailing list corrected up to
date, but we hope to be straightened
out in our new home very soon. And
then we will keep it corrected to
All you have to do is to come to
the o^ce and pay two dollars for one
year's subscription and you will get
an order to Mayes Book store and

We have already arranged with Mr.
Mayes. He now has some of the ar*.
tides on hand and will supply whatever
number we may order. All three
are useful articles. And every
housewife would appreciate one or.
the other. The thermos bottle should
appeal especially to school children.
Oniv one subscription on this plan
taken from each subscriber, and applies
to new and old' subscribers, and
regardless of the date to which you
have paid. 1
Come right along now and lase
advantage of tpis gr^at removal sale,
and we are going to be in position
now to publish the best newspaper;
we have ever printed, and that is cro-1
ing some. j
This is a rare opprtunity to place'
in every home in Newberry county a
useful and beautiful pi?ce of aluminum.
Don't wait -but come right
now. The offer is open to every one
anywhere, and besides get a real
newspaper for a whole year.

we have also made the rule not to

Mr. Mills, the county demonstration
agent, in his column today adv'sos
the plowing under the cotton
stalks just s s.oon as possible in order
10 destroy the boll weevil. We
have heard that uiso. In recommending
it to some awhile ago, a farmer
remarked that this process only
gave the weevil a good warm bed for
winter, and that those thst were in
the haif grown bolls and boils that
had been punctured would just hiberbernate
in their hiding place and
come out in the spring strong and
ready for the new crop. We are not
savins: this in a spirit of criticism.
but to help, and as every one seems
to be more or less at a loss what to
do, it might cause some one to
think. As we recall this gentleman
talked like he had seen the result he
mentioned. They tell a lot of tales
'about the endurance of the weevil.
Some one says that you can neither
freeze the insect out nor can you
burn his bill even in the hottest fire.
They say the bill will get red, as if
you would heat a piece of steel, and
when cooled of? the bill Vould be intact.
We do not know about this, but
we do believe that the cotton grower
will sooner or later conquer the pest,
and that when that is done he will
look upon it as a great blessing that
thp w^pvil rame.
Even now some farmers are making
fine cotton crops while the firmer
just across the highway has no
cotton worth while. The thing to do
we believe is not to plant so larg^an
acreage and to work it fast, and to
fertilize it high, and use a little of
the poison dust, and pick up what of
the shapes that fall off, and burn
them, that you will make a crop of
cotton. We need to plant less acreage,
and we needed to do that thing
before the advent of the weevil. And
then work it -on the intensive plan,
plow it at least once a week and
twice if you can, and keep it growing,
and it will mature before the
weevil has a chance at it, andjthen
be sure to plant 3 sufficient crop of
the things you need to feed and to
cat and you will succeed.
Friday night Troop 1 held its regular
meeting at headquarters in. the
American Legion hall. The troop
was assembled and our flag ceremony
held, after which the business was attended
to. The roll was called and
the dues collected, the scribe and
treasurer making their reports. At
the conclusion of the routine business
Dr. Babb, who was an honor guest at
this meeting:, made us a splendid talk,
basing his remarks upon the first and
second scout laws: "A scout is trustworthy,"
and "A scout is loyal." His
remarks were most fortunate, and
were thoroughly enjoyed by all. After
this talk, we discussed the pro- j
grams for our future meetings. Mr.'
Martin, who was our other honor
guest, offered us his assistance in the
making of a museum, 0 in that he
would assist us by identifying specimens
of our native trees. We are
very g'ad to have the assistance of
an authority like Mr. Martin, and we
shall be happy to go on a nature hike
under his guidance. After making
some few arrangements, we played
some games, having big fun. At the
end of the games the troop was assembled,
and scout retreat held. j
Monday night the conclave of
Troop 1 met at the home of Dood Epting.
assistant scoutmaster. The business
part of the program was opened
with prsyer. after which the conclave
passed upon some of the first class
map?, finding which would pass and
which would not. At this meeting
we discussed the preparation of the
regular meeting program, and decided
that the programs be in the hands
of the patrols, alternating'each meeting.
We also discussed the advisability
of attempting a parents' night,

turn them under it will do much
good to rip them up with a middle;

ton grows again. J
If practical, plan a rotation. It is
not best that cotton should follow
cotton. But if you have only a small
acreage on the farm that is suited to
cotton and you l.nd it necessary to
p^ant it year after year, by Ml mean.;
rip up the stalks as soon as you can j
t:r.fi put in a cover crop of rye and j
votch or rye and clover. About r>0 j
pounds of abruzzi rye and 20 pounds'
of either crimson clover or hairy j
vetch should give you a good winter!
cover crop. This green crop growing;
during the winter will benefit you in;
several ways.
! First. It will help you in your'
fight against the boll weevil. It has'
been found that the weevil .must'
evaporate much of its moisture in or- j
der to keep from freezing during the
winter and in order that he may be;
able to do this he must have a good j
dry winter hotel. He finds this hotel i
1 ?1 3 J I
in nay stacKis neuges. uiu
etc. If you have a green crop growing
in your cotton patch such as rye
and clover, the weevil can not winter j
ithere. It is too moist for his health.?
1 Second. Cover crops will largely J
prevent leaching. Experiments indicate
that no less than 50 pounds per
acre of valuable nitrogen may be
saved from leaching out in the drainage
water during one winter by
means of a green winter cover crop
such as rye and vetch or rye and
clover. This means a saving of nitrogen
of an equivalent of 300 pounds
of nitrate of soda per acre. Nitrogen
is the most expensive part of the fertilizer
we buv. costing annuallv SI5.
000.000.00 in South Carolina and it
is estimated from leaching v experiments,
that approximately one half
of this is lost in the drainage water.
; Third. If the winter cover crop is
a legume like vetch or clover or contains
a mixture of about 20 pounds
.of these seed, it will not only present
large amounts of nitrogen from
Reaching out but will .add many j
pounds taken from the air free of j
charge. Often S20.00 worth of ni- j
trogen per acre will have been added j
and saved during the winter months. j
Sqils treated in the above manner'
will soon cease to need applications!
of nitrate of soda in order to pro-1
duce satisfactory crops.
, Fourth. The winter cover crop!
will add humus. Most South Carolina ;
soils are very low in organic mat-;
ter without which it is impossible to i
have a productive soil. Large crops
of rye and vetch Uurned under will
supply much vegetable matter. This,
when rotten, is called humus. I
We are^ told that a pound of hu*!
mus holds 7 and one half times as.
mu,ch moisture as a pound of sandy'
loam and will hold it 3 and one-half 1
times as long. Hence a large supply j
of humus in the soil helps to control 1
moisture. This explains why land
that is well filled with vegetable mat- |
fpr will wit.Vistnnrl HrrmfVi nv n wpt
spell much better than a thin soil de-,
plefced of its vegetable matter. \
Ninety per cent of the nitrogen in
the soil, 30 per cent of the phosphoric
acid, 12 per cent of the potash and :
large amounts of other minerals are:
held by the humus (rotten trash) in
(a quickly available form for feeding^
a crop.
I A well drained soil with a large j
supply of humus and sweeiened with;
lime is always known as a rich, pro-.
.duutive soil on which crops can be!
produced economically. Economical:
crop production is impossible on de-!
nlft.od soils low in humus and as:
| most of our fields are in this condi-!
ition, soil building is the first and;
I greatest problem that confronts the
i farmers in Newberry county today, j
i The rains have already fallen. Get:
busy immediately and put in rye,
oats, vetch, crimson clover or some:
other good winter growing crop. Next
spring leave some for hay and turn
under the remainder for a green
manure crop. The results will surprise
you very agreeably.
Oat Smut
The farmers sustain serious losses
(every year from smut or blast as it
[is sometimes called, in oats. This
, lo>s often ranges from n to 13 per
cent of the entire crop on certain
j farms. The disease rs caused by a
