j Curing Tobacco Crop
j Florence Farmers Busy De
spite Heavy Rains
I Florence. June 21.?Despite the
i heavy ' arid excessive rains just
j now. tobacco growers of "this seo
I tion are commencing between
I showers to cut arid cure their 1922
!tobacco crop. Several barns were
j put' in yesterday and more would
jhave been put in ' but for the
j threatening weather.
? How the crop will pan out this
j year still is uncertain. Thus far
i the weed has had considerably
j more "water than it needed. Some
places have reported? a great deal
of wilt because of the excessive,
moisture. "So far as has been heard, j
this section has not been bothered |
much with w'ilt, though it has]
shared liberally in' the general i
rains of the past several weeks. If
the rains moderate there as hope
yet that the leaf higher up the stalk
is going to make average good
I Chamber of "Commerce Notes.
The Roanoke Grocery and Mill
ing company, Roanoke, Va.. has
written the Sumter Chamber " of j
Commerce that this corporation is
anxious to get in touch with some
reliable shippers of watermelons
arid cantaloupes. Any producers
who have either watermelons or
cantaloupes for shipment should
write to Roanoke Grocery und
Milling Company, at Roanoke, Ta.;
immediately. The quicker'you write
the better. Don't wait'until prices
slump as prices do' when markets
become glutted. - ? ' ?' 5 ?
Congressman H. P. Fulmer tele
graphed the Sumter ?Chamber of
Commerce Wednesday: "I am
mailing you a supply of franked
envelopes for mailing bulletins to
farmers. More will be serif wheri
received frorii printer."
This-refers to free distribution
of ''Bell Weevil Problem?Fa rm
ers' Bulletin No. 1262" and any
cotton producers desiring this bul
letin may receive'same free by
writing or phoning Chamber of
Commerce, Phone No. 200. 1 '
This bulletin is very valuable to
cotton producers arid has been pre
pared as a resriIt of years of ex
perimentation by the laboratories
of the bureau of ehotmology" of
the United States Department of
Agriculture. There is great deal
about the boll weevil problem in
this bulletin that every cotton!
farmer ought to know. Why hot]
secure this bulletin arid read it, it j
costs you nothing. ?
Dr. W. W. Long, director co-op
erative extension work in agricul
ture and home economics; of Clem
son College writes the Sumter
Chamber of Commerce as follows^:;
"We are sending you five hundred I
copies of the report of the South!
Carolina Boll Weevil Commission j
which contains 'much valuable in-- j
formation in addition to irisftruc- ?
tiori's about' poisoning. 'We have!
also department circular No. 162 j
on 1)611 weevil poisoning, but our ]
supply is almost exhausted and
we 'are finding it difficult to geti
additional supplies.' Perhaps Rep^
.resentative rlV P.rFulm'er, to whom
you have written, has' sent" or Will j
send 'supplies of this circular in
: answering your .request."
So it seems that the United i
States Departinent of Agriculture j
and the farm extension division of
Clemson College believe in poison
ing^ the boll weevil under* certain
conditions made very plain in'these
bulletins and in other methods of
boll weevil control; ' ' " j
That it will not'pay every cotton ;
producer under any- and all' cir*- j
cumstanoes to undertake pdifconing !
is fully set forth' In "bulletin No.
12C2 and It seems that the educa
tional feature's of the' boll weevil
poisoning proposition contained in
this bulletin are well worth while
being secured by every farmer.
Since the'federal government has
spent thousands of dollars in get
ting out bulletins of great educa
tional val?e and if the Chamber of
Commerce is willing to undertake
the trouble to distribute these "boil
weevil problem bulletins,- it does
seem that the cotton farmers can
derive benefit by simply applying
There are more than five hun
dred farmers' bulletins that can
be had as long as the supply lasts
on hundreds of farm subjects by
applying by letter to your con
gressman 'or senator. A list of
these five hundred bulletins is at

3:t was decided that Sumter and
Sumter county will need a county
fair during the trying period of ag

construction more than our county
has ever heeded a fair?and that
Sumter, the county seat should and
will do its full part in pulling to
gether' with the ' rest of oumter
county in building ?p a fair that
will be an educational, instructive,

The board of directors feel that
they are fully justified in askins
the hundreds of business and pro

chant citizens to come in with the
spirit of local pride and enthu
siasm so necessary in making the
1922 fair a credit and of much value
to Sumter and Sumter county.
