Thirtytwo registered Guernseys were sold for an average of $425.00 per head. The highest priced animal was an ' eight-months old heifer which sold for $1250.00 to K. M. James, Darlington, S. C. Only four head of the thirty-two sold were purchased by parties outside of South Carolina. Darlington County breeders consigned 16 to the sale and the farmers of that county purchased 18 at the sale. Eight farmers of Darlington County who had never owned purebred Guernseys purchased one or more animals. In connection with the sale the Darlington Purebred Association held a show of Guernsey cattle at which 53 ^animals were exhibited. The prizes were awarded by Prof. W. H. Howell of the University of Georgia, Athens, Ga. "This sale and show," says J. P. Lamaster, Extension Service Dairy Husbandman, who helped the Dar linRton Purebred Association with the | details of the show, "was a marked Success and certainly stimulated the desire for better cattle in that part of the State."

THE WORLD AT LARGE The Allies are at odds regarding the policing of the Ruhr River basis where the Communists are running rampant. Being in the neutral zone east of the Rhine, under the terms of the Peace Treaty the German Government has been prohibited from sending tr ops to that section, and, since the Allies have no troops there, the efforts of the Communists to set up a Soviet regime in the various cities have gone forward without let or hindrance. Becoming alarmed at the growing seriousness of tlie situation the German Government sent repeated requests to the Allies for permission to send troops to restore constitutional government and finally, no reply having been received, has proceeded to take such action without waiting further for the reply. The delay in the Allied reply is said to have been due to conflicting views regarding the matter held by the French and British Governments. The French claim that, if the Ruhr situation calls for the employment of an armed force, an Allied force umnl/i Ke - - - - .. vw>u ?y v uovu y \vhi 11? the British feel that it is better to let the German Government itself attend to the matter. Apparently the outcome will he that the situation will he handled entirely by Germany, the French (Jovernment entering a protest is a base to future action in case there is arty attempt to keep German troops in the neutral zone after normal conditions are restored. Of interest in this connection is a report recently read by Marshall Foch before the Ambassador's Council at Paris to the clFcct that Germany has more than the Allies and that she also has 0,000 heavy guns. The ex-Kaiser is being closely guarded by the Dutch Government, police officers being detailed to follow him, a few steps in the rear, as he walks about the garden of the Bentinck Castle at Amerongen. Anti-militarist and anarchist societies of Holland are reported to be arranging a demonstration against the continued residence of the Ilohenzollern family in Holland. MR. STEVENSON IS OPTIMISTIC P. H. McGowan In Columbia State Washington, March 2d?Congressman Stevenson of South Carolina, a man who sticks closely to his "Amen Corner" in the house,dias been keeping tab on Republican doings and finds nothing whatever to warrant the belief put forth through G. O. I'. organs that the Republicans are certain to lick the Democrats again this year and come back with a big majority. Far from it. He pointed out today that among other assets the G. O. I'. may claim the proud record that one of the leading members of the upper house has been convicted of conspiring to buy a senatorship and sentenced to the penitentiary, lie admits that thus far no Democrat has achieved this honor. The Republicans have spent, Mr. Stevenson finds $2,000,000 and have not discovered one scintilla of evidence upon which to introduce n vote of censure on any official. He finds the Republicans as badly split as they were in 1910 when Uncle Joe Cannon was dethroned and "Cannonism" abolished forever. Making a careful investigation of the situation, Mr. Stevenson said today: "There has been a pessimisticwave as to Democratic prospects throughout the country for sometime past. Durinp the week just pone by, the skies have brightened greatly. The Republican organization in the house has been so badly divided and demoralized that on last Friday the majority of the rules committee were overturned and control of the parliamentary situation pi von to the Democraic members on the hill to pive a onus to the navy personnel. This is the same thinp that happened ten ve.ors apo, on the same day of March, when Uncle Joe Cannon was overthrown, and it was the bopinninp of the end of Republican control of conpress and foreshadowed a Democratic victory which was realized next fall iit. the election. "Furthermore the Republican house lias set on foot 17 investigations and have found nothing sufficient on which even to introduce a vote of censure of any official, much less to indict one, while on the other hand, Senator Mewherry and 1(5 eolnborers, one of them an official of Republican head<|uarters, have been convicted of conspiring to buy a senatorship and sentenced to the penitentiary. The jury that convicted them was composed of ten Republicans and two Democrats. "When you see the achievement of the Democratic party and place along dde of it the barreness of a year's vork of tin- Republican party and its . political attitude towards the treaty, \ made possible by the vote of this con- \ vict, 'you can see that the Democratic \ skies are brightening. And strange to say,this demoralization of the Republican party in congress has not even been hinted at by the papers in tho national capital." % . - v!
