f'. -v V PUICES IK COLUMBIA , Hotel Managers and Restaurant Pro Prietors Declare Nt Increa8e In Kates Has Been Made With Cinlii of Soldiers Raise Made Months A'sro. . Columbia, Spt. 18. That Columbia Is more sinned against than sinning is the claim of hotels and restaurants lu this city. Managers almost to a man say that prices have not been raised with the coming of the soldiers as has been claimed in other cities of South Carolina and adjoining States. Prices of food in Columbia have increased, they say, but not since the cantonment came. Only one hotel has raised its rates.' the increase being from $1 to $1.25" for a-room with bath. Some restaurants admit that the increased, cost of foodstuffs has caused an ad dition of five cents in some dishes. A statement is said to have been - made in a neighboring city that seven persons occupied one room in a Colum bia hotel and paid $5 each. That statement is branded as false by every hotel man in the city. One hotel man ager was called by telephone by a wo man in a nearby town who qualified her request for a reservation with the ' statement, "My husband and I do not wish to pav $8 each as I'undertsand some hotels re charging." She was assured that the charge would be the same that it has been since the hotel opened its doors, $2 each. , Found Good Treatment. Yesterday a visitor from a North Carolina city left a Columbia hotel with the statement. "I have been pleas antly surprised in Columbia. I was told in the first place I could not get in a hotel here and if I did would be robbed. I have had excellent accom modations and have not been robbed." Rates at the Jefferson Hotel are the same in force since the hotel open er, said John J. Cain yetserday. It is operate don the European plan with rates of $1.50 to $3 per day. Mr. Cain produced his daily auditor's report showing the number of persons occu pying his rooms and the rate charged The average last month was $1.74. An advance in the cafe price was made three months ago and no increase has been made since, said Robert W. Cain thp manager. No advance either in rooms or meals has been made at the Hotel Jerome operated on the American plan. Fred J. Breen the manager, says no com plaint has been heard at his hotel. E B. "Wooten. manager of the Impe rial Hotel, said no increase has been made in rates since the arrival of the soldiers. T. T. Stone, manager of the Berkley Gresham Hotel, announces that the rate for rooms at this hotel was in creased on Sentember 1 from $1 to $1.25 for rooms with bath. No in crease has been made in the price of meals. E. L. Gaillard, manager of the Oolo rrta Hotel, says that on September 1 the Colonia was converted from an apart ment house to a hotel. Rates were chaneed to a hotel status and no change has been made since. The ho tle Is operated on the European plan with rates of $1.25 and up. One Reason VHh Touilsts. (Tampa Tribune.)

T. Thurman, in a four-minute talk, at the Almo theatre the past weekk, pic tured the Kaiser as a wild man and religious maniac. a wild man is hafd to conquer and a religious maniac is tne worst variety we have to deal with," he said. Con tinuing Mr. Thurman then stated that the ivaiser is both a wild man and a f religious maniac, much power having made him mad, and that the Central Powers are completely dominated b him. ' "He is at the head of the most pow erful autocracy the world has ever seen. His word is law and there is no appeal. Those of you who know the working fabric of the German gov ernment, know this is true. Thi Kaiser declared war and then inform ed the people. The German govern ment was prepared for war as no other government has been since the crea tion of man. The military of that country was on fine trigger, ready to shoot, and then began their march through Belgium with no delay. "This wild man, the Kaiser, is, in his opinion, sent of God. When he declared war he told the people to go into the churches and pray. He calls upon God for His benediction. He has had the vision of world power, auj the Central Powers are victorious the democracy of the world will pass away. "Our , country must develop the 1 American sentiment in harmony with Americas purpose. Our nation 13-01 the people and by the people. Our pa triotism is not only national, but it should be world-wide, because of the purpose of America in entering h'b war has not only been to protect its own people but to bring to all peoples a condition of national and interna tional affairs under which there may be peace everywhere. "The wild man with his autocracy must be wiped from the face oftho earth. America's entrance into the war has brought new hope to the Al lies; has given new visions to neutra? countries, and those now bordering 011 the declaration of war, to the extent that now three-fourths of the whole world is arrayed against the wild man of Berlin and his military cohorts.

When sown In September, or earlier, an acre of this kind of pasture affords, on the average, grazing for six 100-pound fattening pigs from the middle of October to May, provided a plement. ' By C. B. WILLIAMS, Chief, Division of Agronomy, N. C. Experiment Station, West Raleigh. The rape plant closely resembles the ruta-baga during its early stages of growth; in fact, so close is this re semblance that often ' an experienced grower cannot distinguish between them. Its root system, however, is more like that of the cabbage. It likes cool weather and will grow dur ing any portion of the year after se vere freezing weather is passed. It will endure pretty severe cold weather in the;fall and winter without being ma terially injured; in fact, it may be used for pasturage after being . frozen, pro vided stock are kept off while it is frozen. It does not make much growth during the hot, dry months of mid summer. Under ordinary conditions the plants will attain a height of 18 inches to 2 feet or more. The Dwarf Essex variety of the crop ia best suit ed for us under Southern conditions. Possibilities of the Crop. Farmers are becoming more and more interested in the production of green crops for faH, winter and early spring grazing. Especially is this true of those who are engaged in the rais ing of hogs and poultry. For winter pasturage an acre or two of this crop will supply many tons of nutritious feed at the time of the year when green feeds are scarce. It has been fully demonstrated by repeated trials that an acre of rape properly seed ed on good rich land will produce as much pork when used as a hog pas ture as the same acre of land culti vated in corn. The rape can be grown much cheaper than the corn, as it will not require , any cultivation, and the preparation of tne eeed-bed and seeding will be cCbout the same for both. The bogs win harvest the rape crop, while tiie corn must be harvest ed by the farmer himself. It shortkl be remembered, however, " that the acreage of rape that can. be profitably utilized for pasturage on the average farm is limited it usauily not bein?' more then two or three acres. . ! In feeding experiments at the Alar bama Station running for 147 days ! (November 9-April 5) with pigs weld ing approximateiy 46 pounds each, at the beginning of the experiment, it wea focmd that the two lots of pigs fed on a ration of two parts of corn and one part of wheat shorts and allowed the use of a rape pasture during the period, produced pork on an average of' 34.4 per cent less cost per pound, counting the , cost of providing the rape pasture, than did another lot fed on the same ration and confined, in dry lots. In other words, the lots fat tened on rape pasture, supplemented with the necessary amount of the ra tion of corn and wheat shorts, made very satisfactory profit, while the lot fattened on the ration of corn and. wheat shorts ,alone in dry lots afford ed little or no profit'. Soil and Its Preparation. Rape is best adapted for growth on a deep, rich, mellow, loamy soil, that is fairly well stored with humus. It does not do well on the very light. Bandy or stiff clay soils because they are defiicient in organic matter. Any soil that will produce wheat and corn well will be found suited - for .. the growth of rape. In preparing the land it should be well broken, then thoroughly harrowed into a fine, clean seed , bed, as is usually done for tur nips or ruta-bagas. ' If the land has a liberal application of manure the previous year, so much the better. On average land it will be well to apply broadcast over the land; just after breaking and before harrowing, about 300. to 500 pounds per. acre of a fertilizer containing 8 to 10 per cent available phosphoric acid, 4 to 6 per cent potash, and 3. to 4 per cent nitro gen. Seeding. For the Coastal Plain and Riedmont sections, the spring seeding may be made during March or early in April, and the fall seeding any time between August 20 and October 15. In the mountain section the spring seeding will have to be made in April and the fall seeding during the latter part of July or early in August In order to get best results. The rape seed are .- -j - -a .:.; t.-.v half ration of grain is used as a sup- sown broadcast t alone or with other crops like small grains and crimson elbver. In sowing with small grains the rye, oats, ' or wheat seed should first be drilled in or sown broadcast and covered an inch deep and then the rape seed sown broadcast' and lightly covered by means of a light smoothing harrow or brush. Where the rape is used alone, 4 or 5 pounds of seed per acre will be sufficient. A good seeding, when sown with oats, would be 1 bushels of Red Rust Proof or Appier oats with about 2 to 3 pounds of Dwarf Essex rape seed. Rye at the rate of 2 pecks or wheat at the rate of 4 pecks per acre may be substituted for the oats if found desirable to make the substitution. Another mixture that has been found to give good results in supplying pas turage for hogs consists of a seeding made up of 2 to 3 pecks of rye, 5 to 6 pounds of crimson clover, and 2 pounds of Dwarf Essex rape seed. This latter mixture has proven particularly valuable for the mountain section for elevation less than 2,300 feet above sea-level. Usually with rape alone or seeded in the mixtures indicated above the grazing may be started usually within thirty to sixty days after .seed ing. Frequently during a favorable season the rape may be lightly grazed by pigs three to four weeks after seed ing. Precautions in Grazing. In pasturing rape the hogs should not be allowed on it until the plants are at least 10 to 12 inches high, for if pastured before this time the young plants will be likely to be pulled up and killed. Care should be exercised, too, that the number of , hogs on tbe pasture is not so large as to keep the rape too closely grazed, for euott would prove fatal to the plants and the life of the pasture would thereby be ma terially shortened. After being grazed, the plants should be given an, oppor tunity to get well started into growth before being grazed again. B7 divid ing the field into lots these may be pastured in succession. If sown on good land and properly handled one acre of rape will provide grazing for ten or twelve hogs for something like two or three months or more. PREPARING FCR A LARGER CROP OF WHEAT THIS YEAR FLOUR WILL BE HIGH NEXT YEAR . AND FARMERS SHOULD IN- ' CREASE THEIR CROP. " - By C. B. Williams, Chief Division of Agronomy, N. C. Extension Ser vice, West Raleigh,, N. C, " Indications are that the price ol wheat, . and hence, of flour, is to be high during the next year. This will naturally cause a planting of an in creased acreage of this crop. Under normal conditions this would not be a promising situation under which to advise the growing of more wheat; but since Congress will in all probab ility fix a minimum price for stand ard grade wheat at primary markets of $2.00 per bushel .it certainly seems to be advisable' this year. In the Piedmont and mountain sec tions of th& State, wheat growers should increase their acreage to some extent at least. Those who have not grown this crop previously in this portion of the State might do so with safety, and in all probability put in a few acres to good advantage to provide for the needs, of the family. On some of the more "compact eastern soils, also wheat might be grown during the present high prices with fairly satisfactory results. Or dinarily we would not recommend the growing, of this crop but very little if any, in the Coastal Plain Section of the State because this portion of the State is ndt nearly so well adapt ed generally to It as the Western half.
