* * University of South Caroliua, Fliun Hall. Columbia, S. C., Mar. ' 9.--This week's letter is written with the ut most sadness, because the campus has been made lonely by the removal of one of our most dear comrades, Roy A. MUtchell, of ountville. He was dear not only to the Laurens county boys, but to the whole student body. This was shown by the way In which his remains were honored.' Our conrade was Roy A. Mitchell, of Mountville. le was a 'member of the Sophomore class and stood high - in it, both in scholarship and in a moral way. He died in the university initrm ary last Friday at 2:15 p. in., from a stubborn case of pneumonia. Meetings of the student body, the sophomore class and the Laurens County Club were held Friday even ing at which resolutions showing the high esteem for young Mitchell were drawn up. The committee appointed to draw up the resolutions for the student body was composed of A. G. Hart, chairman, M. A. Wright and Frank J. Rodgers. The resolutions were unanimously adopted by the sev eral bodies and each body sent beau tiful floral tributes. On Saturday morning when the remains were con veyed to the union station to be sent to Mountvil,le, almost the entire stu dent body of five hundred, marched with bared heads in front of the hearse. Roy was a bright young man and always wore a smiling face. le was a bright star taken from our midst. May God bless and comfort his be loved ones in their great bereavement, is our humble prayer. The following were the resolutions drawn up by the conimittee: "Howlg beneath the weight of the severe shock and deep sorrow which has come to us this day, in the death of our friend and fellow student, Roy Quay Mitchell, and recognizing fue loss to us of a friend andi partner in our life; and whereas, "lip was a man sharing the high est ideals of this campus, never fail ing to measure up to all requirements of a gezntleman and companion among us; and whereas, "In his course here he had given large promise of usefulness to his State and fqllow man, keeping before him principles of honor and unselfish ness; and whereas, Ne S NOW "AT H0] Seasonable S at Reast Genuine Sill Hose at 75 W E are now showi a full line of t: -famous Phoenix Silk Hose 75c a pair.

South Crolna MUST GROW MORELIVESTOCK Prosperity of South Depends Upon Diversified Farming and Stock Raising. ERADICATE CATTLE TICK The South, Adapted to Live Stock Growing, Should Lead the United States in Production of Cattle -Do Not import Food Products-Keep Money at Home. By 0. H. ALFORD, Agricultural Ex. tension Department, International Harvester Company of New Jersey. During the last ten years our acre yield increased, but not half as much as the increase in population. We have all heard the old Dutch proverb quoted before, but we cannot quote it too often: "No grass, no stock; no stock, no manure; no manure, no crops." Holland is almost entirely' a grass and stock country, and lands are worth on an average $500 per acre. These people have found that they can make more out of land from grass and live stock than they can by cultivating it. Unnumbered acres of hill land in the cotton belt are making less than one-third bale of cotton per acre, and at the same time making poverty for those tilling them. The cost of com mercial fertilizer applied annually is appalling. The razor-back terraces, covered with weeds, grass and briars, and the circles and short rows pre vent the use of labor-saving imple ments. We are sending millions to the northern states every year to pay for pork products, dairy prducts and beef. This money should be kept at home and deposited in our banks un til they are full to overflowing and the rate of interest lowered to say, six per cent., because of the abundance of money. Then we will have the necessary money to build good roads, to pay good teachers better salaries to teach longer terms, to improve our farms and to build comfortable homes and put telephones and libraries in them. Then our boys and girls will stay on the farm, and we will behold prosperity in every department of the commercial world. The south has an overwhelming ad vantage over every other section in live stock raising. We have great climatic advantages that permit out Dr. Tait Butler, Memphis, Tenn., Sec. retary Southern Cattiemen's Asso. elation. door pasturing andl feeding during th1 whole, or the greater part of the year. We can obtain large yields of oats, leguminous crops, Johnson andl Ber' mudia grasses, sorghum cane hay, and an abundance of corn for the making of silage, the most economic form of carbohydrates. The keeping of good rattle and the intelligent use of thor oughly good permanent pastures and grazing crops, and the economic use of the silo and cotton seed meal wvfil make our landls rich, keep millions ol dollars at home that are now sent to thle north and wvest, and make our people prosperous. In'thle cottoa belt live stock farm. ing has been avoidled mainly for- two reasons: (1) Because all-cotton farm. ing paid better until the soil became poor; (2) because of the cattle tick. Now, millions of acres are too poel to grow cotton profitably, and we can easily eradicate the cattle tick. Since the work sof eradicating the tick wan inaugurated, ngarly 200,000 square miles have been cleaned for all time; this is an area over three times ag large as Alabama. The tick injuresn the hide, reduces the milk flow at least ten per cent., makes it very dif flcult to fatten cattle, prevents the in. troduction of good cattle to breed us our native cattle, lowers the price ol our, cattle on the mlarkets and de. stroys more than enough cattle every year to pay for its eradication. The days of the tick are numbered, The last tick will be destroyed in q few years, andl then the southl will adopt a permanent system of agrici.tl .nnmantion Itnad - - s' HIS" FIRST - DEQSIT JOHN A OCKEFELLER, coUL POiNT WITH PRIDE TO HIS FIRST DEPOSIT IN T B SiN THE BANK.
