FARM TENANCY IN j
SOUTH CAROLINA, (University Weekly News). Sixty-three per cent, of all of the j rarms in South Carolina are operated j by tenants. In 1910 there were 178,- i 434 farms in this State, and of these j only 65,213 were operated by owners j and managers. Only two states in the nation have ; a greater percentage of tenancy than this state. These are Mississippi with 66.1 per cent of all her farms oper- I ated by tenants, and Georgia with 65.6 per cent. The general average of tenancy in the Bast North Central States, in-1 < ^ eluding Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michi- j #an and Wisconsin was 27 per cent. > The highest groups are the West South Central States with 52.8 -per cent tenancy, the East South Central 1 with 50.7 per cent, and the South At- j lantic wilii 45.9 per cent. These three j; consist largely of the cotton growing j Upon These Argumenl ^rrOU, the buyers, are the real builders o! jf the final Okay upon the use of certain struction when you buy a wagon co refuse to buy a wagon that does not.

It is difficult to make short turns and back up. The Thomhiil full circle iron gives a continuous track on which the bolsters can turn. The gears of Thornhill wagons stay in line for life. Instead of the usual front hound plate, a hound plate of malleable iron is used. It is a metal jacket braced at ei^ht points that beeps gears from ever getting out cf line.

The i I essential point is that the greater percentage of the farms in South Car- j olina are operated by others than the j owners themselves. j Moreover, the tendency in this di- j rection seems to oe on me mu VOOV j in 1SS0 the percentage of tenancy in ! South Carolina was 50..'!; in 1890, it j was 55.3; and in 1900 the figure was 61.1.

This situation assumes unusual importance when we consider its relation to the existing boll weevil situj ation. It is the tenant farmer who [will find the matter of adjustment | most difficult. He has never leaned [ toward the system of safe farming | which makes him provide his food and feed supplies at home; and it is | going to be hard to instil into him as quickly as is necessary new methods of farming which must be learned to accommodate an enforced change from the present system of agriculture. The opportunities of landowners, merchants, bankers, and business men to aid in this program of education for readjustment constitutes a responsibility; for it is the tenant farmer as a rule, who is most inaccessible to the ordinary methods of Our Case ; tough second growth highland hickory is i felloes the sturdy white oak is preferred.1 )n the mountain side.
