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.” Sunday School Picnic At Boiling Springs (Special to The Star ) A big dinner will be served on the grounds at Boiling Springs the fifth Sunday in June.

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 back. 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 properly. 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 jle. * Henry H. Q—Can Anything be ione to stop one from growing? A—No. X. C. Q.—What do you advise foi pimples and blackheads?

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 $3000. 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 bond business. 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 federal appointees. 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 bond. The underpaid federal employ*, of course, can't get out of paying his. Except in a very few cues where it runs up to $2.50 it costs a dollar par $1000 of aurety to be bonded. Thou affected include all persons disbursing money or having the cus tody of money or property. None of the cabinet members hu to give bond, but all under them are held accountable for whatever money or property they handle. Try Star Want* Ad*. --- ■ I ■' "" 1 I1"1-"!
