tpert From West Describes Syst
cusses Problem of Merketin
A somcwitat definite end apparently
ractlcal plan for grain elevators fo\
his State has been submitted to the
State department of agriculture, com
merce and industries by J. Coopei
Strattan, representing the Qurrell En;
gincering and Construction cum pan s
f Chicago. Mr. Strattah'a plan J/
interesting mainly in the feature
"ono man elevator," a plant to c
between $^,000 and $4,0000. wMch
bo operated and conducted, by
Mr. Strattan declorcd that if AQ
fanners are in earnest, about this At
ter of diversifying crops he canPlP
them to institute a system of ffta
elevators, and without elevatd/ it
would be useless to go into thrnsi?
noes of producing more grain/than
can bo consumed in the im/diato
vicinity. The first step will b?*r the
farmors to sign an agreement/ Plant
grain in sufficient quantity .tfuPPly
an elevator, .perhaps on thepsls of
100,000 bushels a year to -j/n "one
man elevator." 7 -
Then if the site for the tfrtor can
be secured Mr. Strattan- J?il?ng to
lend his services in th? jitter ?*
financing the proposition. Pme local,
capital will he needed otPur8e? but.1,
ho thinks Umt he can InfHt O?tsldo ^

manifest a sufficient arf111* of in

tieshirig machines, hut there could
. v a thresher for each community.
, , Mr. strattan declared that it was of
, Ao greatest importance, however, to
f'lave the elevators placed under a
/trlct system o finspection from the
?>tate department of agriculture, so
that the weights and measures would
be agreeable and fair to the pro*
ducers. Much depends upon the man
ner in which the venture gets started,
and If there were any complaint at
all it would be as Injurious to this
really great movement as was the
attempt to produce tobacco In the
Piedmont section of the State. It is
his suggestion that the grain be
shipped loose from - the small ware
houses to the terminals arJ at the
latter, places properly cleaned, graded
and sacked.
Mr. Strattan has expressed his will
ingness to come to South Carolina
and to explain to the people the
workings of the elevator system. He
thinks that the manager of the ele
vator could also bo the receiving
agent for eggs, poultry and other pro
duce for the farm and thereby give
encouragement to the farmers to pro
duce more things to sell. There has
not been any question as to what the
South can produce. The great prob
lem has been ? means of marketing,
and he believes that the community
grain elector would answer that
To HJelp Farmers.
- Commenting . upon the tentative j
plans for a. chain of grain elevators
in this State, as outlined by J. Cooper
Strattan, Commissioner Watson said
yesterday that while-the department
of agriculture does not wish to prefer
one to another in a matter of this
kind; yet as this 1b tho only proposi
tion of its kind before the people, he
considers It worthy of indorsement
While Commissioner Watson would as
readily give official sanction. to any
other proposition that is .offered by
reputable people to help the State, yet
ho considers that the Burreil Engi
neering and Construction Company of
Chicago has come into the " State at
the psychological- moment and if the
people- of the State will seise the op
portunity, H will mean the revolu
tionizing of the'plan of agriculture of
this State and thr pouring of great
wealth Into the pockets of the farm
ers.* ' . , . '.'. J . ; > '
"We. hove been accustomed,'' said
Commissioner Watson, "to think of a
grain elevator as of some tremendous
niant; coaling many-' thousand'' 'of
dollars,, -a hich could be constructed
owned and 'operated by large corpora-*
?bnB/alpne.'; B?p the" -firm of, West
ern expert.3 in building grain eleva
tors has indicated clearly that a few
farmers in earnest in this great crisis
rnsy organise!and:build end.conduct
a-.smalj local elevator at a coBt o?
aivnind 12,000. And there could be
built in some-of th? railroad centers
of: the State terminal warehouses: for
the.' receiving and transferring, and
dispatching of grain to the greater
markets, j I see in this proposition a
great development and a future' por
tentous with success and with, wealth,
I -urge the. people of the State to plant
as much grain as possible and to
make'it worth-.while to engage in the
grain handling business, r Elevators
may not pay for the 'first year, dl
thoMgh-RnTnn hniVft-b**011 knhwnto pay
big dividends from the first, year, and j
greater in - tno succeeding years, j
"If thero la ft curtailment of the
nnttnn crop; aa there is:sure to ha. tnf
the common sense of the people will
dictate it whether the legislature or
dbVB It of not, there must - be some
substitute. We. have not tho milling
faculties for manufacturing to an/ !
extent and I. suggest that the people
of tho Stete sbquld..give careful con
sl?ratlbn to the plan offered, by Mf.
Stratum; for* hb may, bo ante to as

ClomBon College, Oct. 22.?The. col

There is not much-surprise at the
excellent condition of the crop since
everything that; could bo done was
dono to give the seed a good growing

a.disc harrow'foiir'limec. A smooth'

and 'five tons of grjound limestone
