Washington, Sept. 17.-Inforiration
reaching the State Department today
from a n6utral country threw new
light on the situation in Central Rus
lia, where a reign of terror conducted
y the Bolsheviki has made the posi
tion of the populace tragic in the ex
treme and is endangering citizens of
e Entente Powers who have been un
ble to leave the country.
Declaring that the outside world
nnet have a true conception of the
tual condition, the dispatches said
hat since May the Bolshen ki extra
ordinary commission against the coun
ter revolution has conducted a cam
paign of wholesale murder. Thousands
pf persons have been shot without
even a form of irii. it was said, an
gnany of them probably ,were inno"i"'
,f the political views for which they
were executed. *
Cause of Condition
The assassination of Moses Uritz
key, head of the commission against
the counter revolution, and the at
tempt on the life of Premier Lenine
were direct results of this condition of
tyranny, said the advice. Besides the
50oo persons who were s-ot in connec
tioh with the death of Uritzskey, a
large number of other persons are
held for execution in the event that
further attempts are made on the life
of the Bolshevik leaders.
A general search is being made of
i. , ouses of Moscow of the well-to-do
former officers in an effort to
yre any spread or evidence upon
which to make arersts, said the dis
patches. The prisons are filled to over
flowing and executions continue daily.
In many cases, it was said sentences
are passed upon the slight grounds l

The United States has turned its

nroposals, Secretary Lansing, by au
thorization of President Wilson, an
nounces that the United States "can
and will entertain no proposal for a

which it has made its position and

The British Secretary of Foreign
Affairs,. Mr. Balfour, has also stated,
though unofficially, that he was ut

have the desired end, adding "it is in

Poles to Aid Czechs
While the Czecho-Slovaks have been
ourageously and successfully carry

to the oreanization of a Polish divi

NEW CASES ('F INFLUENZA
First. Naval District Iteports Total of
Boston, Sept. 16.---Medical officials
of the Ifirst Naval District reported
257 new cases of influenza today.
There were ten (deaths at the naval
hospital. A spread of the dlisease ini
mild form was reported among the
school children of this city andl out

at the Carney Hospital, who had deC

men ill with influenza died today,
having contracted the disease andl de
On Tuesday, the 17th (lay of Sept.,
1918, a large and representative
crowd had the pleasure of personally
inspecting what is fast becoming to
be one of our largest and most prom
ising local institutions. At the invita
tion of the company the stockholders
and their friends gathered on the
ranch at Foreston, where they were
first fortified against starvation by
having their appetites appeased by
the splendid barbecue prepared by
Mr. Charlie Fulton, the premier fish
stew and barbecue artist of the South.
This was unquestionably enjoyed by
all present, but no more so than the
opportunity to personally view the
herd of beautiful and sturdy Here
ford heifers, which has lately arrived
from the largest ranches of Texas
This marks the beginning of the high
grade beef cattle industry in this sec
tion of,the South.
Some ten or twelve years ago, Mr.
Courtney Campbell commenced to
prepare himself in his characteristic
ally thorough way for the cattle busi
ness, recognizing it as one of the
great opportunities of our country.
For this preperation he has not only
ranched extensively in this country
and in Europe, absorbing practical in
formation at first hand from men in
the business, but has for some years
past been actively engaged in the
various branches of this business, one
of the most important of which in this
part of the country, is a thorough
knowledge of proper drainage of land.
Mr. Campbeli was for some years
connected with one of the large engin
eering companies which was engaged
in draining immense areas of our
neighboring state, North Carolina
After having acquired the practical
knowledge in this line he has since
been engaged in the most stable line
of agriculture, producing high grade
cef cattle for the market on Mary
land land worth from $150 to $300
Mr. Campbell was convinced that if
this business could se successfully
conducted on land of such high value
and where climatic conditions were
comparatively unfavorable, that a far
greater profit would be realized by
establishing a ranch in "The Sunny
South." He therefor- gave a great
deal of consideration to the most ad
vantageous locality, which resulted in
the purchase of this company's hold
ings at Foreston, comprisiny 4,300
The next step was the formation of
The Carolina Stock Farms, Inc., a
company with an authorized capital
of $200,000, one half of which is pre
ferred and one half common stock.
The originators of the company in
vested $50,000 in the formation of the
company, the purchase of the land,
etc. These assets were then turned
over to the Company in lieu of stock
in the company, 70 per cent of which
was taken in the Common stock. To
further finance the organization,
$75,000 of the preferred stock, which

after having first inspected Mr. Ful

evidence of real drainage work which,

a few lays.

FOR CLARENDON BOYS
Editor of The Times:
I want to make an earnest appeal
to the parents of the county to send
their sons, who are prepared, to col
lege this fall, and let the boys enter
the Student's Army Training Corps.
I think almost all of the colleges
of the State have been designated by
the War Department to give this
training. I an, quite sure that Clem
son, the Citadel, Wofford, Erskine.
Presbyterian College, Furman, the
University at Columbia and the Col
lege of Charleston have been so desig
mted. For boys who are eighteen and
above who are not prepared to enter
ollege, such boy should go to some
good preparatory school. There may
i several such schools in the State,
but I know that the Hailey Military
institute at Greenwood is prepared to
lo this work, and has been so selected
)y the Government.
When students enter these schools,
.hey have an opportunity of then and
there volunteering in the army, and
ipon being acepted are trained thern,
h. government paying all of the stu
lent's expenses, and in addition there
.oo, he receives the regular salary of
in enlisted man-thirty dollars per
In other words, these colleges and
schools have been converted int(
raining centers for the army. Instead
if a boy going to Camp Jackson he
imply goes to college. It seems to
ne that every boy in the county be
ween eighteen and twenty should im
nediately take advantage of this
splendid opportunity of obtaiining a
:ollege education at the same time
e is being trained for the army.
Certainly, every boy, from a finan
ial standpoint, can attend college this
rall. He can go to gollege, have all
!xpenses paid and receive from the
government thirty dollars each month.
I have no interest in this matter
t all except that I Want: the boys of
he County t/ know of the splendid
>pportunity that is now presented to
hem. Not only will they be better
dgcated, but taking their military
raining in these colleges they will be
mnabled to secure better positions in
he reg.ular army. The future officers
if the army, to a large extent' will be
Irawn from the students of these co!
eges and schools.
