A Tulk With tle State GeCologist
A)ott the Treastires in the
Jas. A. Hoyt, Jr., in The State.
The forestry of South Carolina and
the State's geological resources are
matters to which public attention has
only recently been directed. Their
importance is doubtless not yet fully 2
appreciated. In the South Carolina c
building at the Exposition there are
various exhibits of the timber wealth I
of the State-nearly every county has
something of the sort to show. But in I
the centre of this building is the State a
exhibit proper and the most interesting V
parts of it, perhaps, are the timber and (
mineral displays. These were collected d
and arranged by the very competent 11
State geologist, Mr. Earle Sloan, who ki
is an enthusiast as well as an expert. c
The timber exhibit embraces speci. il
mens of the many native wooda-the a
long-leaf pine, Cuban or slush pine, e
short-leaf, loblolly pine, spruce pine, a
cypress, cedar, red birch, beach, black C
gum, sugar maple, red maple, cotton k
wood, white ash, white oak, swamip ai
white oak, chestnut oak, willow oak, n
water oak, red oak, scarlet oak, Span
ish oak, black oak, post oak, winged ir
elm, white elm, dog wood, sorrel wood, I
sasafras, hackberry, persimmon, long- t(
leafed poplar, tulip poplar, white hick- Z
ory, black hickory, pignut hickory, C
walnut, palmetto and others. ft
It is not, generally known that these el
native woods are being cut and finished ti
on a scale that is really nmammnoth. it s<
is an industry that has made great ad- si
vances in late years, and while the si
promiscuous destruction of the forests fi
is to be deprecated the scientific de- ir
velopmeut of these natural resources
into commercial assets is a benefit to w
the State flinancially and an aid to all at
other industries. 01
For the preparation of pine and cy- C
piess lumber South Carolina affords g
some of the largest saw nulls in the si
United States. A mill at Georgetown si
has a capacity of a million feet a lay, ko
one mi. at Charleston a capacity of ti
three-quarLers of a million feet, and ti
many mills along the lower pine belt. at
have capacities but slightly less. oj
Considerable attention is attaching b
to the superior white oak of this State at
from which much is shipped to the w
Northwestern States, to be converted c<
into furniture and then returned to the e.
Southern States. The logic of this t<
situation has stimulated the crection of in
several furniture factories in the inte- o:
rior of South Carolina and others will tl
probably soon follow. H eretofore the cc
white, oak of this State has been either di
hewn into crossties or manufactured si
into rough lumber, selling at prices rang- F
ing from $8 to $14 per thousand feet. c(
This white oak, carefully "quarter in
sawed," is worth, delivered at Balti- Ii
more, $45 to $50 per thousand feet. eW
Commercially the most important y(
geological possession in this State is
the phosphate rock. Specimens of this y
are on exhibition and to those unfa- 01
miliar with the peculiar formation, a tt
remainder of the departed glories of S
unknown ages, it is a valuable lesson a
to see the rocks and have their history e
When asked for something about, the b
geological exhut Mr. Sloan first, di- a
rected attention to the dlisplay of st~and- y
ard-shaped blocks of the structural and
monumental stones, chief amongst, i,
which are the gran itcs of this State, t
which are second to none in the United e
States in both quality and~ quantity. s
Very extensive quarries are now being y
worked near Rockton, Illairs, New- I
b)erry, Pacolet and Columbia, yielding (
varied and superb produicts. Some of i
these quarries are equipped with the a
most complete aiic modern mechanism
for the production of architectural e
st~ones, andl employ the most skilled i
artisans for highly finished monu- t
mental work.
The State House of South Carolina
is cc -structedl of granite from these t
quarries and deimnstrates the very su.
perior capacity of this stone for the
p~ermanent maintenance of a white
ness of color resembling marble, and
of a dhurability promising practically
indefinite inalterability. The specimeni
blocks exhibited include all shades and
varieties, ranging through the Scotch
to the darkest, lines. A coniiicu~ous
prodhuct of this industry is to be found
in the "Belgian blocks'' recognized as
the most durable paying blocks fondc
in this country andi which are shippedi
as far West, as Cinicinnati. T1hue gran
ites and gneisses of this State aro in
considerable demand for macadam izinug
roadways and for the ballasting of the
roadbcds of railways. A large guarry
and plaut, at Cedar Mountaini are ex
clusively devoted to furnisiinng crushed
gneiss to the Southern rail way, and thme
recent app~ropriatioin of several million
dlollars made by the Seaboard Air' Line
for ballasting t~heir roadbed will prob
ably lead to the opening of addititonal
qjuaurrieis and the installation of' new
lnuts in this Statec to furnmsh the
necessaiy materkul. The value of thbc
stonc produced in this Statec during the
year 1900O was $285,172.

spicuous deposit of this mineral of aull
known localities, and produces about
2,000 pounds per day, with an aggre

Glancing at the c->lcction of' beryls,
imethysts, IIIicas, corun(lumn, baryta,
iliestones, graphites and other eco
ionic minerals, one then comes to the
:aolins and clays which, during the
ear 1900, yielded in returns to the
itizons of this State $712,536.
About 20 per cent. of all wood pul)
aper is composed of kaolin, known as
paper stock"-South Carohina is the
lost prominent producer of "paper
Lock" kaolin for the higher grades of
,hite paper. The beds of Aiken

(,posits, and so superior is this article

cality that no washing or other pro
iss of refinement is required to make

bout 30,000 long tons of this kaolin
ich year in addition to some porcelain
ad fino clay. Killian, in Richland
ounty, affords the most prominently
nown bed of fine clay iII this State,
id operates extensive kilUns for the
anufacture of flIne tiles, bricks, etc.
You next arrive at a collection of the
on ores of this State, of which the
ost conspicuous and historically in
resting are the celebrated Cherokee
agnetic ores. With these orcs the
onifederate government operated large
irnaces, gun foundries, rolling mills,
c. They represent a vast accumiila
)n of particles of magnetic ore dis
minated through magnesian slates

tperior quality of the iron derived
em these ores must again create a Io

One then passes by the tin ores,

How the Farmers Can Save Money
- l'o (he ditor of The People's Journal:
'flie following conmmunication issued
by the Assistant Agriculturist of Clem
sou Agricultural college is of so much
value to the farmers of this State on ac
count of the present high price of all
feed products for farm animals and
stock, that I have determined to get you
to publish this as an advertisement for
which our company will bear the ex
A some of the products made up in
the ration as made by Mr. Connor may
not be available to various planters I
suggest that any planter write to kr.
Connor and state what food products
are available to hin, both rough forage
and concentrated food, and Mr. Connor
will take pleasuie In making up a ration
to suit his needs as he has done In this
Yours truly,

Cheep Rations for Horses and
To the Editor of The People's Journal;
Farmers from various sections of the
State have been writing asking about
the advisability of feeding horses and
mules on cotton Seed meal and hulls and
also asking for a cheaper ration than
'I'he following prices are given in a
letter from Scranton, H. U. : Corn, $40
per ton; oats, $,15 per ton: wheat bran,
$25 per ton; cotton seed muoal, $25 per
ton; rice meal, $22 per ton. Of course
corn and oats are out of the question as
a food for horses and mules at the above
prices. so something cheaper must be
looked for.
h'lhe analysis shows that rice meal has
about the saine composition as corn meal
and we have found that it is just ae good
for feeding pigs. We have fed it to
horses with good results. I think we
are safe in sa) ing that it may bo used in
place of corn pound for Fouid.
If no hay or fodder is used in the
ration and hulls are resorted to as rough
lesH Komne nitrogenous food such as bran
or cotton Reed meal must be used to
supp)ly protein. hlulls may be fed with
out, any further fear of injury to the ani
imal. Should they refuse to eat the hulls
a little corn meal or bran sprinkled over
the surface will tempt them.
A gool cheap ration may be matde up
as followis.
Six pounlids of rice costing G1.6 cents;
four pound of wheat bran costing 16.0
cents; two poundi of cotton seed meal,
cIsting 2 5 cents ; tel pounds of cotton
seed hulls, costing ..0 cents ; total cost
of ration per day 17. 1.
h'lie above is for a horse or mule of
1,000 pounls in live weight.
It is evident that a ration made up of
cori and fodder and containing the same
amouit of digestible matter as the above
ration would cost much more than the
ITile North Carolina experiment station
i has fed cotton tiSeed meal and hulls to
e horses with good results, but the experi
mients along this line have not been ex
tensive enough to say that cotton seed
meal can he fed in unlimitel quantit.ins
for any length of tine without injury to
' the aiminild.
Numbers of farmers, however, have
r- reported that they have fed cotton seed
'y meal toI mulecs and horses with good
is results.
