Mr. Editor: Will von) allow and Old Con federate soidier spce1 enough to express himiseIf ill regard to the manner in wich our State has treated her oldhi soliiers who fought her lattles nearly fifty yar.,a). lI is there thatj eery mny .)I'ht to stand by his State at all cst for her pro tcction. Watch the ni that did not do h.s dutyr and you will see one who has never done much towards helping to build up his comitry: and if South Carolina is anything to-day it is through the industry and pro tection of her old Confederate soldiers and their generation, fo)r after the war was over we had reconstruction days, which makes our blood warm now to 'ven think of them. But we pulled through, thank God, and there are a few of the old boys alive vet, but their steps are feeble and they have t6 co slow. They have nide a record that any state ought to be proud of in time of war and in time of peace. With all the disasters of war, reconstruction and depre dations. we can justly claim one of if not the wealthiest state thal. was in the Confederacy. Is this not so now.? With all the wealth that is bestowed upon our St ate what is she do ing for her old soldiers? She is g;ving Uhe poor pitiful sum of tw o hu ndreit and fifty thousand dollars, and only a certain class ai allowed Ito have any of this. Wsrho ever heard o. f State using partiality with old soldiers ex copt South Carolina? Shame on the man who Would preteud to repreSent his State as a states nan and advocate such a law! i-his i not ali nor the worst of it either for the pension law says thaitJ any man or his wife or both who rnake seventy five dollars gIoss icolme will be de baied f romrii drawing a pension. S.) Vou see it is hard for a man and his wife to live on seventy five dollars a year. You may see the nigarly principal of such a law, and the worst of it is that a great many perjure themselves to get what little theydo get. Shame on such a law that requires an old soldier to take such an oath after serv ing his country as faithfully as he did. It is a shame on any State legislator to pass or advo cate such a law. The most of the men who did the fighting have lived out their allotted time; the Lord gave them three score year's and ten. They are etting very feele and cannot work nmch loner, but too proudl to hog axnd do not want to sep arate from their families and friends, so what will be t e ont comiet Now. Mr. Editor, has; South Carolina no statesmn who love and honors her and her old soldiers for what they did in trying to protect her and her rights? If not, woc be unto her.

The best accounts of what oc Cured on the Titanic are given ii the stories told by the surviyors Naturally the stories differ ii some details. The doomed ves sel was almost a city in itsel and the scenes in different part, of it were not all alike, Some extracts from survivors' storie. are gi :en below: Following is the account oi Mr. Beasley of London: "Ihae been in my berth for about 1( minutes when, at about 11.15 it the evening, T felt a slight jai and then soon after a second one, but not sufficiently heavi to cause anxiety to anyone. "Going on deck, I saw ther was an undoubted list down wards from stern to bows, bul knowing nothing of what had happened, concluded some of the compartments had been fill. ed and weighed her down. ] went down to put on warmei clothing and as I dressed heard an order shouted: " 'All passengers on deck with life-belts on.' "There was a total absence of any panic or any expressions of alarm, and I suppose this can be accounted for by the excedingly caln night and the absence of any signs of the accident. -The ship was absolutly still and except for a gentle tilt down ward, no signs of the approach ing disaster were visible. She lay just as if she were walting the order to go on again. But in a few moments we sawv the covers lifted from the boats and the crews allotted to thew standing by. "We th.u began to realize it was more serious than had been supposed. Presently we heard the order: " 'All men stand back away from the boats and all ladies re tire to the next deck below,' "The men all stood away and remained in absolute silence. The boats were swung out and lowered. When they were tc the level of B deck. where all the women were collected, the women got in quietly with the exception of sainie who refused to leave their husbands. "in some cases they were torn from them and pushed into the boats, but in many instances they were allowed to remain. "Looking over the side, one saw boats from aft already in the water slipping quitely away into the darkness." All this time there was no trace of any disorder; no panic or rush to the boats. Mr. Beas iy told how he was allowed te get into one of the boaits which was about to riush off, because there was a place and there were no n omen in that part of 'the ship. The boat was rowed a mile or more from the 'I itanic, because the sailors at the cars were afraid of being drawni down by the suction when thi steauier sank. Continuing, he sad: "It is now about 1 o'clock in the morning; a beautiful, star light night with no moon light. The sea was as calm as a pond. just a gentle heave as the boat dipned up and down in the swell an ideal night except for the btter cold. One of the men a! the oars said he had been at; sea 2E years and had never yet seen such a calm night on the lantic. "In the distauce the Titanic looked an enornious length, her dieatj bulk outined iii blaclk against the starry slgy, every porthole and saloon blazing with light. It was impossible tc think anything could be wrong wer it not for that tilt down. ward in the bows where the water was by now up to thc lowest row of port holes. "About 2 a. m, we observed her settling very radidly with the bows and the bridge comi pletelv under' water. "Shie slowly tilted straight or end with the stern upward, and as; she (lid so the lights in the e'nhlins and saloons which ha2 not flickered for a moment since we left, died out. came on agair for a single flash and flnally wenit out altogether. At the same time the machinery roarec down through the vessel with a rattle and a groaning that couli be heard for miles The engines and boilers seemed to have fal len through the forwvard half oi the ship as it stood on end. "T< our amazement the ship stco iin that upright position for : time which I thought was fiv< minutes, though others in th< oat say it was less. Then witl a quick~, slanting dive she dis appeared beneath the waters Then there was nothing bul the calm sea and the clear, star lit sky."1 Wxreless Operator's Story Among the saved was Harol Bride, 22 years old, the junio: wireless operator on the Titanic He tells of what occurred in thi (Continued on page 4) South Smallest of the Southern States, Natural Resource-Gi Altho the smallest of the Southern States, South Caro lina occupies a higii position in - wealth of natural resources and in the vast opuortunity held forth future growth and pros perity, It is significant that during the past decade the value of the staple cross of the State increased .in value nearly 115 per cent., evidence of the tre mendous growth in agricultural activity. South Carolina holds the world's record for the great est yield of corn to the acre: has more cot' on mills than any oth er Southern State; stands second in cotton production among the States, and has a manufac turing growth-only recently begun-to which any State might point with pride. South Carolina is alert and provressive in the steady march of the Sou thern commonwealths toward wealth and prosperity and the State holds fourth niz-v y induce ments and advant-iges to the home seeker and the investor. South Carolina has a land area of 30,495 square miles. a population in 1910 of 1,514,400, or a density 49.7 persons to the mile, and a total property valu ation of $760,000,000. In 1910 the State had nearly 3,000 miles of railroad; a cotton crop of 1,184,000 bales; a lumber cut of nearly 1,000.000,000 feet; bank ing deposits of over $50,000,000 and minerals produced to a value of 62,000,00. In the northwestern border counties of the State the cleva tion is extreme, reaching 3,000 feet, and in parts very rugged and mountainous. From this mountain region the country' rolls downward to the broad Piedmont Belt, crossing thel State diagonally from north to south and forming the most fer tile farming section as well as the most thickly-settled and prosperous manufacturing por-. tion of the State. From the Piedmont B3elt the slope is grad ual to thie wide Coistal Plain bordering along the Al lantic. The soil of the upland section are gray sandy loams, with good yellow clay subsoila. Red clavs and dark loamns are i d in the coves of the valleys along the river, formed from decomposed mica rocks and hornblende. All are very fertile and gro w excel lent grass, and in many area:s fine fruits. The surface of the Piedmont Belt is generally roll ing and composed of rich sols A great portion of the belt is un der intense cultivation in every veriety of general and special farm crop, the yields from which are generous. The region is well drained. The soils of the Coastal seotion are strictly allu vial or coastal. Including the islands off the coast, there are vast stretches of level, muck and river deposit soils which respond readily to the slightest effort of the farmer. (Ilmatic Feat ureA The mean annual temperature for the entire State is ti3 degrees. At Greenville in the north -rn section, it is 57 degrees, :md in the southern extremity 67 de grees. The summer seasons are long in South Cam'4ina, but particularly mild and equable Iand fite frm hot spells an~d ~droutlis. 'Winters in the S~:e are healthful and mild~ and bring annually thousands of tourists and health seekers to, the many resort3. There is an annual rainfall in the State of 48 inches, very wedl distributed throughout the growing season. Gieneral Farming Owing to the great variety of soils and the wide range of clim ate, South Carolina is particu larly favored as a generatl farm ing section. A long growing season permits of nore crops to the year than in the North an~d the rich soils and general c:limic will give bounteous retumns at less labor tha~n elsewvhere. Cot tons corn, wheat, oats, rye, to jbacco, truck aind fruit are grow n in tr'emendous crops and give to South Caroliea the distinction of being one of the foremost agricultural States of the Son th east, despite its smali size. The very finest Sea Ishad -is grown on the islands along the coast. In the interior far imers aresteadily increasing theji' Iyields of cotton per acre, many instances of :two bales to the acre being recordIed. Corn is >grown all over the State. Be lginning with the yield of Jerry -Moore, In 1910, who made 228 bushels to the acre, there are hundreds of farmers every year -who get over 100 bushels to the acre, often on large fields. South Carolina is one of the foremost corn growing States 1A Pickeus Oount y grower made from o.ie and a quarter acres 15.0 bushels of corn and 1,400) 3 pounds of stover, at a cost of $38. Other grains raised suc Carolinz Yet One of the Richest in Evei owth in Recent Years cessfully in the State are oat. rye and rice, the yields of th latter along the coast being e ceptionally large and profitabh One grower made 137 bushels c rice to the acre in Anderso: County. The State produce about 30,000,000 pounds of clear ed rice annually. Tobacco is cultivated in man' parts of the State, especially ii the central portion, where ther is found an excellent combina tion of soils and climate. Souti Carolina tobacco is the first o the market and usually com mands a high price. Good far mers make from 1,000 to 1,501 pounds of tobacco to the acre. Truck Growiug The trucking industry ha been expanding at a rapid rat< all over the State, until it ha, reached gigantic proportions. The Charles' on truck districi is known all ovt r the countr3 to commission iiwn. Growern of vegetables take off three, ani sometimes four crops a yeai from the same field, and Soutl Carolina truck gets in the Northern mal kets just after thE Florida stuff. One grower plant ed Iri h and s weet potatoes, cab bage, melons, beans and canca loupes on 100 acres, and hic books at the end of the yeal showed a total return of ovei $16,000 Around Charleston arE great fields of early cabbage every year much of it frost-prool plants for Northern growers. From five acres in cabbage in 1910 over 1,500 crates wert made, bringing a net profit of $1,835 to the grower. Another trucker reported a yield of $3, 300 from twenty-two acres in potatoes, while his neighboi made over *90 to the acre in asparagus before planting sweet corn for the summer. Sweet potatoes in the section average in profit $150 to the acre in many cases, while strawberries are giown for the high-priced Northern markets with wonder ful success. One grower made 81.459 froni a three- acre field in berries. The Southern Railway affords quick through refrigera tor service to the Charleston growers and there are many c'a!neries in] the neighborhood which take up the waste and the culls. FruIte. Peaches are grown in nearly evy ounty along the South enRailway in South Carolina. Teowner of a peach orchard in Aiken County took five crops of peaches from a sixty-acre orchard in six years, miaking from $4,000 to 86,000 on e ich crop. The Elberta, that high class fruit, so well knowni and called for in the North, thrives well in the South Carolina clim ate and soils. There are man' apple orchards in the State, al though this industry has not reached a high state of de .elop ment owing to the larger profits which can be made with othei fruits. Summer varieties are grown in some parts, and come to maturity at a very, early period, Pears, plums, grapes, quinces and the usual variety of smnall fruits do as well in Sout h Carolina as in other Southern States, and many instances might be sighted where growers have made the largest profits. The pecan finds ideal conditions ainost all over the State and there are steadily growing nm hers of this most valuable tree. Profits of $500 per acre are made by pecan growers and severa groves have recently been sold near Charleston at prices over $1.000 per acre. There i~ great opportunity in this direc tion in the State. Live* ek. In the north western section where the land is elevated ani produces excellent pasturage stock raising is a profitable in dustry.

Forest Resources. It is estimated that there. are over 2,000,000,000 board feet of merchantable timber standing in the State at the present time,' offering excellent opp-rtunity for the lumberman. Of this supply the western mountain - region contains the largest . per centage of valuable hardwoods . chiefly oaks and hickories. Other timbers found in this mountain section are m'aplesj locust, gum, poplar, ash, pine > and a good grade of red cedar'. Throughout the Piedmont region' are heayily timbered sections of . red and black oaks, pines, beech, sycamore, and other varieties, while along the low lying - and - often swampy areas of the coastal plain are fine. cypress, gums, cedars and loblolly pines.
