A New Office In

ter of Mr. Elias Mauldin of Eas
ley, has been appointed Instruc
tor of domestic science for Pick
ens county, and will enter upon
the duties of the office March 1.
The place Miss Mauldin is to
fill has just been created for this
county, tho the need of it has
been felt for a long time. Most
of the other counties of the state
already maintain the place for
the benefit of the girls and wom
en. Miss Mauldin will have
charge of the tomato and can
ning clubs of the county, be
sides other domestic science work
and we feel sure the ladies, and
especially the school girls, will
find her work a great benefit to
them and its influence will be
felt in every home.
Miss Mauldin is a graduate of
Winthrop college and thoroly
understands the work of the do
mestic science department. She
has taught school in Pickens
county several years and is comn
The money to maintain this
place is mostly furnished by the
United States government, the
county having to furnish a small
part, the government's policy in
this case being to help those who
try to help themselves.

T. A. Bowen, county agent,
conducted a fertifizer campaign
in Pickens county last weekand
had with him Agents Chapman
of Greenville county and Byars
of Anderson county. The ob
ject of the meetings was to dis
cuss fertilizers, how to use, how
.to buy and what to buy.
It was the consensus of opin
ion at these meetings thatit was
unneessary to even think of buy
ing fertilizer that contains any
potash, as it is selling now for
more than $500 per ton. As the
first six inches of soil in this sec
tion contains about 2000 pounds
of potash to the acre it is thought
this will be enough to last awhile
without buying any while the
price is so high.
Home-mixing of fertilizers is
advocated by niany experiment
stations, sonie claiming that it
effects a saving of from $7 to $10
a ton. Figures quoted by Clem
son College show a saving of
from $5 to $7 a ton by mixing at
home. 'Sixteen per cent acid and]
