THE SHERIFF BUYS A
KENTUCKY THOROUGHBRED
Sheriff D. P. Douglass h&s a reputation
for always demanding and always
getting the best whether it was
cigars, automobiles or, well, we don't
know much about his liquor. But
when Mr. Douglass bought a horse
the other day he lived up to his reputation
and bought one that will be
the pride of Chesterfield County. Yes,
he was bred in old Kenturltv
the medow grass is blue and where
the horses are said to be just as fa*t
and as pretty as the women.
Here is what a Kentucky paper had
to say of this horse when he was sold
to Mr. Joe Culberson:
"W. C. Strawhom, of Greenwood,
S. C., has sold his saddle stallion, Alta
Chief 4760, bred and raised by J.
Gano Johnson, of Mt. Sterling, Ky.,
to J. H. Culberson, of Chesterfield, S.
C. Mr. Strawhom purchased Alta
Chief from the Cook Farm, Lexington,
Ky., in 1911, and Mr. Strawhorn
says that during the six years
he owned him he never showed a vice
or a fault. He has left his impress
upon the horses in that community
and he will be long remembered by
his many admirers in that section."
Will the Sheriff show him at the
County Fair? Well, you just come

~ MR. W. J. TILLER TALKS
OF HOME ORCHARD!
l
To the Farmers of Chesterfield Co.:
There are a great many question:
that should be brought to the mind:
of the farmer at this time, but the
most important is the care of the
j home orchard. There have been shipB
ped into this county this year several
j hundred dollars worth of fruit trees
i and if they are not properly cared for
j it will be money thrown away.
Quite frequently we are asked why
t fruit trees dio, especially peach trees.
c The two worst enemies of the peach
tree are the San Jose Scale and the
peach tree borer. Nine times out of
ten when you find your peach tree
showing signs of death you can lay it
5 to either the San Jose Scale or the
peach tree borer. There is only one
logical method of destroying the scale
! and that is to spray. Spray with lime
' sulphur wash. This can be applied to
1 all trees as the scale will attack nearly
all fruit trees.
This solution can be bought from
your dealer ready prepared, or you
can make it at home by boiling 15
pounds of lump lime and 15 pounds
of sulphur for one hour and Qjen add
to this enough water to make 50 gallons.
Apply this to the trees by
means of a spray pump or wash.
This pest is very easy to control if
it is begun in time, and now is the
time for this work to be done. You
can secure this solution ready pre

and J. W. Blackwell, Jefferson, Route
No. 1.
The peach tree borer attacks the
tree at or near the ground. That is
noticed by the gum discharge from
the tree. The tree should be cleaned
and the borer looked for with a piece
of fine wire. This insect can be successfully
fought by mounding up the
earth around the trunk of the tree
about eight inches during the 1st days
of July and taken away the first days
of October.
To get the best results from your
trees they should be pruned. Most
any one can do that by thinning out
the growth each year and cuting back
about one fourth the growth from the
previous year.
I will be glad to assist any community
by instructing them in the
care of the orchard, and in order that
I may reach the most people, if the
different communities will come together
at some one farm I will gladly
meet with them and give all the help
I can. Don't hesitate to call on me.
It is very important that the farmer
should take care of the orchard as
it will be one of the means to meet
the boll weevil. Every community
should have a spray pump, as they
are useful in a great many other
ways. I can assist you in securing a
pump. I would not advise buying
anything but a barrel pump. They
will cost from twelve to twenty-five
dollars and will last longer and give
far better service than the smaller
ones.
I can help-all the people by community
co-operation, but cannot visit
every one personally. So let all communities
come together and lets do
some real community work.
I have a few buleltins left on fruit
culture for South Carolina and anyone
interested can get a copy by the
asking. I also have other bulletins
and different subjects that I would be
glad to put in the hands of farmers.
ADDED EVIDENCE OF
AMERICAN PROSPERITY
Everyday brings evidence that the
American public'are willing to pay
for the things the people really want.
For many months newspaper and
magazine publishers have been hard
pressed, because of the tremendous
increase in the price of white paper.
In many cities one cent newspapers
have raised their price to two cents
without any appreciable falling off of
circulation, but the most striking example
of the public's willingness to
pay an increased price for a better
product occurred last month, when
the publishers of the Cosmopolitan,
America's Greatest Magazine, determined
that, instead of cutting the
quality of the magazine, they would
print an even better magazine and increase
the price.
Over a million people have been
buying the Cosmopolitan for many
years at 15 cents a copy, and, with
the greatly improved February issue
more people paid 20 cents for Cosmopolitan
th nhad ever in its history
purchased the maguzine at 15 cents.
How such a magazine can be produced,
sold for 20 cents and pay a
profit to the producers is a modern
industrial problem, especially when
the editor has among his writers
Gouverneur Morris, Robert W. Chambers,
John Galsworthy, Jack London,
Edith Wharton, Owen Johnson, Elizabeth
Robins, Amelie Rives and Elinor
Glyn. The magazine is profusely illustrated
by the greatest modern art
1 ists, and its tremendous sale is onlj
iwn added proof of the American pub
lie's thorough appreciation of a quali

The General Assembly in Columbii
seems to take up a great deal of tim?
with the whisky proposition. Th<
House of Representatives, after first
1 passing a "bone dry" law, then votec
to kill same and finally reversec
themselves the second time and pass
ed the Richey law, which absolutely
prohibits the importation of any
wines, whisky beer or alcohol at al
into South Carolina.
The Senate has refused to pass ar
absolutely dry law, but by a majority
of 29 to 10 has passed what is knowr

provides that no whiskey may be imported
as a beverage, but that whenever
a doctor prescribes same that ar
amount not to exceed one quart a
month can be received. Preachers
may procure one quart a month for
sacramental purposes. It looks like
the Durant bill, which has been passed
by the Senate will become a law, unless
vetoed by Gov. Manning, and
many predict that he will refuse to
sign this bill.
It seems a great pity that so much
time is consumed in discussing the
liquor question. One would judge
that about the only business the State
has on its hand at the present is to decide
the amount a man may drink.
