T:ilkii)K to un Intelligencer reporter yesterday, li. o. Evan*, who has been upending a fortnight in New York etty and other Northern markets, Haiti that the outlook for tho approaching season's business was good as ho could ever remember. He said that conditio ti H in New York Just at tills timo were a little hard to under stand, sinco with the retail dealers of Norw York, the pant season had been a very poor ono, due In all pro bability to tho fact that the fall had been so warm. He said that another fact contributing largely to the de pression of business in New York just at this time was the failure of the immenso firm of Spiegel, which occurred last week. He aleo mention ed the failures which had occurred among the clothing concerns in New York. He said, however, that the whole sale clothiers of tho North seemed to bo in splendid shapo and that they were all looking forward to the pres ent season for a magnificent busi ness. Ho commented on the fact that tho Northern clothiers are en thusiastic over President Wilson's ad ministration and that they approved heartily of the currency bill. Accord ing to his impressions, the Northern people think just as much of thc pres ent administration as do the Southern folk. One fact that Mr. Evans had im pressed upon him by his vi Bit to New York was that clothing will not be nearly so much cheaper as many people think. The prevailing opinion is that the tariff legislation enncted by congress would make clothing much cheaper thau lt has been. Mr. Evans said that the manufacturers explain that this ls clearly impossi ble because ot the fact that there is a reduction, morely on the raw ma terial and not on lalbor. For instance, the cloth to make a suit will come at $7.00 possibly, but at the same time the labor to make lt will remain at $7.00. Therefore, the buyer in're'y gets a better price because of tho reduction in tho cost of material. However, this aili of course be an item. Mr. Evans said that all the South, ern Anns were buying heavily this year and that he did likewise, bc cauue he anticip?tes an era of p ros pe tffvr such as has never -been ex perienced by this section of the coun try he ore ANDERSON SCHOOLS STUDYING SOILS ; (Continued from page 1.) a* conducted on the demonstration plots at public schools. In Anderson county there are five schools following this line of work in connection with the regular course, these (being Lebanon, Pelzer, Threo and Hwenty, Long Branch and Den ver. Each of the schools have a three? aero demonstration plot, whore they can receive training that could not he obtained fruin the texiwbouks.' They see the gradual result of tho labors, see the plantings appear and learn -what ls tho best means for getting results. Two acres of the plot will be. plantod in cover crops each year ned tho other acre in oats and vetch. Tho rotation pian is then followed and In thia manner it is impressed upon tho child that sclentilc fanning can get better results end malus big. ger yiolds than can ever be accom plished if old methods are pursued forever. J . ?The good that can be accomplished in .this work is incalculable. The child is impressed and in many in stances that may lead td the father being impressed when ho is told by the child ot th?) work done and when he sees for himself that the method followed is getting results, ho is very likely to attempt lt himself. (Anderson county ?chool authorities say that they wish it were possiblo for every school in thc county to have ono of these demonstration plots and do the work that is being done ny mose scnools where the pian is in progress.

' _ Wants Politicians to Love The "Peepu?." Editor Intelligencer: I see in tho papers the legislature of South Carolina is in a fair way to solve fhe great problem that has perplexed' the statesmen of our na tion for many months. They have trailed it Jn bot pursuit and are about to tree it on the back of fifteen month old calves. Now all they have to do 1B to k*ep it there and starve it until it ?B willing to surrender all its abi lity to living up to a nigh pitch. What' a blessing it is to have men wise enough, and endowed with keen scent as to be the first to strike trail and creo the high cost of living before the greet men of our nation had even struck trail ot the vampire that has sucked tho lifo blood of so many and played havoc with oar nation. Better keep an eye on lt. or it may leap off and run through a flock of fowls and make ita escape and di vide itself into a large number of units and be hard to tree again. Keep it sate while you have it bl your grasp. Once itmakcB its escape you will never, see it all in ono body again; you will have to trail it. piece by piece, and tu?t will be a difficult Job., Save the people while you can do eo, ndo't let the vampire escape; if you do the fanners will be forced under a heapy penalty to raise more hen ' fruit to sell direct to the con sumer. A ban will be placed on over production of cotton ; food products laregly increased; farmers who get a little money ahead will be required to invest it in mill stock or some other company where they can com promise for twenty cents on the dol lar. His cow must give a stipulated amount or milk or go to the butcher, or go to the buzzards; his hogs must o? a certain breen : in short, he "must do as we say or we will make con victs out of the whole push.
