C., JULY,24, 1913 NME i~ FAR MERS'IN FORPICKEI Dear Mr, Editor: There will be held in your county farmer's institutes on the following dates and at the following places:v J. W. Hendrix's, Pickens route 4, August 5th; T. R. O'Dell's ( Liberty route 3, August 6th. There will be present practical V farmers in the demonstrationI work, and experts from Clemson : College to address the farmers on subjects relating to their v every day work on the farm. n These institutes are held in the interest of the farmers. The sal- 1 aries and expenses of these men d are paid by the %tax payers of the State, and the farmers owe a It to themselves to attend these v meetings, and derive 'all the a benefit possible from hearing the U lecturers. These men are public servants, anxious to serve the farmers. It is no easy task to 0 travel from county to county, Sday after day and deliver ad- V dressed, end to meet hunderds i of people, Therefore these men are entitled to be encouraged fi when they are e.'deavoring to G perform a public service that is filled with so much promise, pro- k vided that the farmers will sim- G ply cooperate by a'tending the meeting, and seek information by asking questions that will be 0n cheerfully and gladly answered by all the lecturers. It is grati fying to know that the prejudice a that was onco held by the far mers against scientific men is a passing away, All of the great c' discoveries that have been made n in the i'nteirest of agriculture we 0 owe toTiientific mien. It was the scietific man who discovered that leguminous crops are able to take nitrogen from the air and deposit it in soil, and save the farmer the most costly of all i fertilzer ingredients; it was th e scientific man who made it possible for us to overcome to a s5 large degree the ravages of hog R cholera by the use of hog cholera 1 serum; it was the scientific man who enabled us to secure a seed A corn that would give a greater s< yield per acre, by reason of care ful selection and breeding; it is F to the entomologist and plant M pathologist that we go when insects and plant diseases are destroying our crops; it was sci + entific men who invented and f manufatured all improved im- a plement for the preparation and cultiyation of the soil and the haryesting of the crop. Surely, w when we realize these facts, we must respect and be willing to heed the instructions of these G students of plants and soil. So I fi plead with the farmers of South Carolina to'attendl these meet- ci ings. L Respectfully, tc W. W.

The resolution passed reads As follow: "No city, coamunity, town or cor poration, having a 'ewerage system, shall empty crude sewerage into any stream of South Carolina without hav ing permission from the state board of health. If the state board of health deems it unsanitary or dangerous to permit such disposal of crude sewer age, said city, town, community or . corporation shall establish a sewerage disposal system approved by the state board of health." The title of the act by 'which such authority was given the board is: "An act to authorize the executive committee of the state board of health to adopt, promugate and en force rules and regulations for the betterment and protection of the pub lic health." Another point brought up for con sideration was the report of the con dition of the sewerage system of Ches ter.
