TO FIGHT WEEVIL
Chester. S. C.—What is said
to be one of the most forward
and progressive steps to be tak
en in an effort to combat the
ravages of the boll weevil in
Chester county has been made
by the National Exchange Bank,
of this city, where in a full time
man, R. F. Palmer, of Bradley,
S. C., a graduate of Clemson
college who has specialized in
boll weevl control, has been em
ployed by this battfc. TUs duties
will be to advse and assist farm
ers in this territory, wthout cost,
in applying intelligent control
measures to the cotton fields
where this service is needed.
“A lot of time, effort and
money,” Ralph W. Coarsey,
Chester county demonstration
agent stated, "has been wasted
in the past through applying
poison where it is not needed
and in putting the poison on
in an effective manner. If the
farmers will cooperate in this |
project it will be the largest
demonstration of this kind ever
attempted in this section,, and
its successful operation holds
out more promise of effectively
meeting the boll weevil situation
than anything before attempted.
The man selected for this work
is a graduate of Clemson col
lege, who has been specially
trained In boll weevil control
work and his employment Tn
Chester county will prove a val
uable asset to the agricultural
interests of the county.”

Copeland’s HEALTH TALK
£ Watch Flat Feet
By ROYAL S. COPELAND, M. D.
(United States Senator and former Health Commissioner of
(Inquiries may be addresed to Dr. Copeland, care The Star, Shelby,
fi. C. If you dtslre a personal reply, enclose a stamped envolepo.e ad
dressed back to you.)
Anything that interferes with the natural and free use of the foot
in walking is bound to cause all manner of disagreeable symptoms. If
your foot is thrown out of its natural position, strain is bound to be
the result. Such strain is capable of causing pain extending anywhere
irom me 1001 uaeif mrougn me leg ana mia me
Many a person has believed himself to be
suffering from rheumatism, or even some sort
of kidney or spinal trouble, when these organs
and parts are really perfectly normal. He Is
merely paying the penalty of walking on a foot
which has become too weakened in certain parts
of its delicate structure to perform its function
Flat-foot is the name given this trouble. It
is a displacement of the bones of the foot which
receive the weight of the body when standing
or walking. As a result the arch of the foot is
depressed or flattened.
Qg. CUt'tUVNB, mere are many causes or this condition.
" Chief of these are improperly fitted shoes. They
may be shoes with excessive high heels, or narrow or short shoes, or
shoes which do not give necessary support to highly arched insteps.
Another cause is the turning of the feet outward in walking. Weak*
cned muscles and ligaments due to exhausting illness, poor health, old
age, rapid growth in a child, overweight prolonged standing on hard
floors, corns and bunions and spe
cific diseases—all these are factors
in producing flat-foot.
The first measure to take in the
treatment of flat-foot is to get prop
erly adjusted shoes. These should
have broad, low heels and ample
space for the toes.
Everybody should cultivate correct
attitude in standing and walking.
The sufferer from flat-foot should
throw the weight of the body fre
quently upon the outer side of the
feet while standing. He should walk
with the feet held parallel and
pointed forward with the weight cn
the outer side.
The third thing to do is to prac
tice tip-toe exercises twice daily. The
sufferer stands with the toes point
ed inward, and slowly raises and
lowers himself upon the toes, de
scending with the weight on the
outer side of the heels.
If these measures do not give i»
lief it will be necessary to strap the
root with adhesive plaster or to
place it for a time in a cast or to
use mechanical appliances. Your
doctor or the specialist will advise
i’ou regarding such treatment.
Even after the condition has been
corrected from flat-foot must give
close attention to the selection and
[it of his shoes and to the cultiva
tion of a proper attitude in stand
ng and walking. He must do this if
le is to avoid a return of the trou

Uncle Sam Tight
Fisted To Some
Of His Employees
$Z.500-A-l’ear Workers Most Put
Up Big Bonds. Some Employe
Bonds Bun High.
Washington. — Foreign nations
sometimes think of good old Uncle
Sam as tight-fisted, and so do some
of good old Uncle Sam’s employes.
The government worker getting
$2500 a year who has to put up •
bond of $100,000 and who, in addi
tion to carrying responsibility for
large sums of money, has to pay
for the bond from his own pocket,
probably is one of those who does.
The bonding charge may deprive
him of his vacation money and he
has to keep his bond renewed.
Many federal employes are not
bonded, but perhaps as many as
150,000 are. and although a few
have to put up a bond of $100,000
each one has to shell out money
for a bond which benefits only the
government and the surety com
panies. There’s a bill in congress
which would make Uncle Sam pay
the fee, but no one ever does any
thing about it.
Some Bonds Run High.
The government has about 500,
000 bonds in force, a majority them
to insure the performance of con
tracts. The principal of these bonds
run all the way from $50 to $10,*
000,000 and the navy department,
on a ship building job, has exacted
a bond as high as $15,000,000.
Fidelity bonds, covering employes,
run as high as $200,000. About 100,
000 persons in the postal service
are bonded, including postmaster!
whose bonds run all the way from
$5000 to $100,000. In accordance with
the amount of money they handle,
and mall carrier and clerks, whose
sureties range from $500 to $2000 or
Until 1894 the government had to
accept bonds from individual guar
antors Instead of from corporations
and in that year there was about
$50,000,000 in accumulated claims
against individuals who had gone
bond for public servants and had
disappeared or been found to be
insolvent. Congress gave the busi
ness to surety companies and today
competition between them Is so
keen that several keep girls hang
ing around the White House to get
each new list of nominations as
fast as they come from the presi
dential offices, so the companies
may go after the appointee for his
All government bonding Is hand
led through the section of surety
bonds In the treasury, the chief of
which is Thomas L. Lawrence. This
section is a clearing house for all
bonds and it is Lawrence's Job to
see that all surety companies doing
government bond business are fi
nancially strong. He has an ap
proved list of 94 companies from
vhicb the treasury will accept
bonds. Last year Lawrence made
tour companies refinance, under
penalty of losing all business with
About 200.000 bonds a year are
taken. The largest one was for $7,«
900,000, covering construction work
on the new department oi com
merce building, The government
customarily takes a 60 par cent
bond on all Its contract work. Con*
tractors, of course, make the”iov
emment pay the bonding costs, by
including them in the original bid
under one heading or another. Na
turally so. The contractor on the
commerce building, for example, had
to pay more than 9160,000 for his
The underpaid federal employ*,
of course, can't get out of paying
Except in a very few cues where
it runs up to $2.50 it costs a dollar
par $1000 of aurety to be bonded.

tody of money or property. None of

accountable for whatever money or
