. There is and has been more sickness
in this section of late than for
many years. Influenza and pneumonia
have been the cause of several
s deaths. There are a few new cases of
"flu" in the neighborhood, but it
seems to be subsiding.
Mr. J. D. Johnson has returned
from a hospital in Columbia where he
underwent an operation for appenditis.
He is getting along nicely.
This community has recently lost
two estimable ladies by death. Mrs. j
Daniel Sullivan succumbed to influ-,
enza and Miss Eliza Demby was the i
victim of heart disease.
Mr. B. T. Miles has moved from
here to Mr. K. C. Johnson's at Middendorf
where he will farm and look
after a herd of cattle.
Mr. J. R. Lynn has erected a nice
tenant house on his farm.
Rev. James Russell is expected to
begin a protracted meeting at Rocky
Creek Presbyterian Church on March
U. It is hoped the flu will have so far
abated as not to interfere.
The Sunday Schools at Rock Creek
and Fork Creek will open up as soon
as possible. The Sundays are too
long without Sunday School and al- ,
ready the interest seems to be lag- ]
ging with many people. A very little
excuse seems to be justifiable. (
The farmers have done very little i
work toward a new crop as the weather
has been so unfavorable that it i
is likely that we will all be late
There are a number of one, two and 1
three horse farms without tenants

Mr. E. N. Clark and Supervisor 1
Knight are doing some fine work on
the old Camden road through this section,
Hock Creek and the Macedonia
section that is speaking well of them.
With the gang and but a few hands
much has been accomplished. This
piece of road was supposed to be useless
but since it has been worked up
it is very useful indeed. This road
I lays through some the best farming
section and nassess by three churches
and jurist mill. There has never been
a Kuritf on this road before and it was
thought for years that it would be
thrown away, but it is not a dead
community and Mr. Knight knows
that some of the older settlers are
entitled to some of the county work.
There are several cases of mumps
in this community.
It will always pay you to see me
when in need of anything in my line.
I am generally under the other fallow

Senator Expresses Hope of Republican
Inroads In A Number of
Kansas City, Mo., March 1.-?Signs
of a political change in the South are
visible, and the breaking up of the
old Democratic control in Texas,
Louisiana and other Southern States
is a possibility according to Senator
Warren G. Harding of Ohio, candidate
for the Republican nomination for
"It is gratifying," said Mr. Harding
in an address delivered here tonight,
"to feel a full felowship in a great
imiiy wmcn nas icit sucn an
impress of htdpfulness that all of the
United States arc turning to the Republicans
for the restoration hoped
for in every American heart. So striking
is this truth that there is a confident
belief that the sectional lines
which heretofore have marked the
limits of Republican majorities to be ;
yroken.and the solid South,Democratic |
for two generations, henceforth will
be no more than a political memory.
"Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia
ind Louisiana are encouraging Republican
hopes. Texas ,not so promising,
is demanding the reorganization
of the Democratic Party, with restored
Jeffersonianism, and, while it
is at it Texas may go the whole
route to redemption and turn to confident
Republicanism for the realization
of its higher aspirations."

The influenza quarantine will most
likely he lifted either the latter part
of the week or the beginning of next.
If the present favorable weather continues
or a few days longer it is
thought that the danger of an epidemic
in Chesterleld will have been
passed and while no official word has
been given out by the Board of j
Health, it is understood that body
is considering raising the restric- j
tions providing no cases are reported j
prior to its next meeting. One or two
mild cases are said to exist in town.
The school board will await the decision
of the Board of Health before
announcing a resumption of school.

Columbia March I?-The Annual
Cotton Convention of the American
Cotton Association will be held' at
Montgomery, Alabama, March, 912,
1920. The auditorium there will
comfortably seat 5,000 delegates n"d
it is our hope to have every seat lilied
with delegates of men and women
from every section of the Cotton
Belt, including the cotton growing
areas of Arizona and California. R.
M. Mixson, President of the South
Carolina Division makes this statement
about the convention:
"The convention will be devoted
to the di' cussion of broad economic
measures of reform in the future baling,
handling, warehousing and marketing
the cotton crop. The most vital
subject of reform for 1920 will be
centered in the immediate construction
of adequate warehouse facilities
in every cotton growing County. The
Governors of the cotton states have
been invited to attend the Conference,
to jointly consider the enactment
of State Warehouse legislation
based upon uniformity of operation.
Governor R. G. Pleasant of Louisiana
will preside as Chairman of the Gov
ernors Conference, many of whom
have already accepted the invitation
to bo present. The local warehouse
problem as to construction and operation
will be handled by a L.ige committee
composed of tiu' oflicials of the
Warehouse Division, Federal Bureau
of Markets, State Directors of Extension
Service, State Directors, 15areau
of Markets and oflicials of the
American Cotton Association. A.Southern
Bankers' Conference is being
provided for which will consider the
he .t methods of financing the cotton
crop in storage while the same is being
slowly marketed by the growers.
Mr Nathan Adams, a prominent banker
of Dallas, Texas, has been invited
to preside over the Conference of
Bankers. Governor W. I*. G. Harding
of tiie Federal Reserve Board has already
accepted an invitation to be
present at the Convention and deliver
a strong and forceful addrc. s endorsing
the economic aims and purposes
of the American Cotton Association.
This address will be one of the most
important of the Convention. Mr. \V
G. Turner, of , Memphis,
the recognized Dean of the raw cotton
trade in the South, and the Gen,erul
Manager of the largest concentrating
plant for storing and comp
ressing cotton in this country, will
deliver an address covering an exposition
of th" primitive and wasteful
practices employed by the cotton merchant;
in the handling of the cotton
crop between the growers and th<
spinners. U. S. Senator Joseph E.
I Ransdell of Louisiana will deliver a
carefully prepared address an "The
Economics of High Density Gin Compression."
The presidents of the various
A. & M. Colleges and the State
Superintendents of Education of the
Cotton States are accepting invitations
to he present and form a sectional
committee for the purpose of
formulating plans for the specific cd- j
ucation of our young men in the |
I varied details of marketing farm pro- '
! ducts, and especially with reference
I to the grading, stapling, warehous-1
ing, ginning, financing and marketing i
the cotton crop. Reform in the agri- j
cultural education of the young men j
of the South is one of the most vital
needs of the present times.

to be recognized as vital factors in '
the future development of the organ- j

WANTS MEAT INDUSTRY
TO BE PUBLIC UTILITY
v! u? Puckers With Service Coporations,
Suggests Official Of
Livcslosk A isociation
Washington, Mr.roll 1.?The meat
packing industry should he placed by
Federal regulation "on some such
footing as public utility corporations
are now," the House Agriculture
Committee was told by Charles
O'Donnell of New Mexico, Vice Pre ident
of the American Livestock Association.
'leading resolutions favoring such
regulation, which he said were passed
at the last convention of the association,
Mr. O'Donnell said this was
the only step which would give the
stock grower confidence in the markets
where he sold his products.
"It may be that sharp fluctuations
in price on the stock yards are unavoidable,"
he said, "but the man who
takes a big loss on his cattle is suspicious.
If there was a Federal committee
which could investigate
promptly and report as to the facts,
he would take his medicine."
Mr. O'Donnell said that ?tockmen
objected to "government by injunction,"
and would rather have legislation
covering the subject.
"When we load our cattle now," he
sai l, "there is nothing for us to do
but to prey. They arc- at the mercy
of the railroads; they are unloaded
by a slock yards employe, who is an
employe of the puckers; they are sold
through a commission man, whose relations
with the packers are closer
than wit h us,' and whose salesman
may he a stockholder in Swift Co."
K. C. I.asater of Texas, appearing as
Chairman of the Farmers' National
Bo^rd and member of a special committee
of the Farmers' National Council,
classed the agitation for Federal
regulations as. "a light between the
home owners and home builders of
the United Siat.es and the Chicago
"Armour, Swift, and every male
member of their families could be put
into jail without disturbing the packing
industry for ninety days," hg asserted.
"and alter that period the industry
of cattle raising and distribution
would 1 e pervaded with hope
Mr. I.asater declared that "dollars
do make a difference before the
courts in the United States, I believe,
and the people of this country
generally belie'.e so too."
In a recent speech at Jackson Michigan,
before a large audience, Major
General Leonard Wood outlined his
policies. Business, he held, large as
well as small, must be given every
legitimate encouragement and support,
for if labor is to remain content
and prosperous buisness must also be
prosperous. Reasonable profits, ju t
wages and increaed production, the
General maintained, were the anwers
to the high cost of living problem.
After arguing for a highly trained
and efficient army of not more than
2!>0,000 men and a navy of the first
class, efficient in every sense of tlaword.
General Wood advocated
national budget, paid a tribute to the
farmer* of Ihu country, urtred the
upbuilding of the American merchant
marine, and emphasized the fact that
he stands for the policy of Theodore
Roosevelt in foreign relations- a policy,
he said, which guarantees the
safety of the life and'property of every
American citizen, no matter in
what part o the world that citizen
hapens to be.
"You know, old man, I was trointt
to ask you to dinner with me tonight,
bu I just heard Smelt remark that
you were troinp to cat with him."
"Oh what time do you eat?" ,
"Well, that's all riukt old boy,
