Two States After
Of Springs Estate
Question That Must Be Decided Is
“Where Was Col. Leroy Springs’
Charlotte.—Whether North Caro
lina or South Carolina will receive
three-quarters of a million dollars
or more in inheritance taxes from
tire estate of Col. I.eroy Springs of
Lancaster. S. C.r and Charlotte, may
hinge upon the question of where
his legal residence was.
Col. Springs, millionaire textile
manufacturer, maintained homes!
here and In Lancaster. He died
early tills month at his home here.
His estate has variously been estl- i
mated unofficially at from $5,000,-!
000 to $15,000,000.
A. J. Maxwell, North Carolina
commissioner of revenue, said at
Raleigh that nothing had been done
toward putting In a claim on the
estate for inheritance taxes and
would not be done until he learned
where Col. Springs claimed resid
Several years ago when Col
Springs purchased his home here
he was quoted in newspapers as
saying he would make Charlotte;
his permanent home.
Col. Springs was then a trustee of
Winthrop college at Rock Hill, S. C.
Governor John G. Richards of
South Carolina appointed a mem
ber of the board of trustee to suc
ceed Springs who, he said, was no
longer a resident of South Carolina.
Col. Springs at the time contend
ed he had not moved his legal resi
dence from Lancaster.
No administrator has yet been
appointed for the estate. Whether
Col. Springs left a will has not
been made known. Roach Stewart,
Lancaster attorney who handled
the greater part of Col. Springs leg
al business, said he knew nothing
about a will.
Elliott White Springs, of Fort
Mil!, S. C., Col. Springs1 only child,
has refused to say whether or not
his father died intestate.
Col. Springs is survived also by
his wldoy, Mrs. Lena Jones Springs.

The aforesaid rooster broke into
the limelight; in Elkin when he was
credited with laying several eggs of
the bantam-sized variety. Now the
game Chanticleer is reposing in a
coop at the home of Abe Cohen, on
Ninth avenue .and all his owner lias
to show for $6 lie put out last week
is a rooster valued at about fifty
cents by Cohen’s brother, Louie Co
hen, and two little “rabbit" egg.,
about the size fond mothers used to
fool kiddies with around Easter.
The eggs, however, came with the
roaster and the far-famed Sir j
Game has added nothing to his I
glories hero. There iq. not an egg In
sight, despite the fact that the
roaster’s owner put him in a sep
arate coop and has watched with
keen expectation for some of the
hen fruit that made the three-and
a-half poung cockerel claim a right
to the sweepstakes prize.
Cohen bought the rooster in E'lkln
last week, after he had become fa
mous for his accredited unusual
feat. "It's nothing but a common,
little old rooster and my brother
paid six dollars for It!” Louie Co
hen disgustedly told a newspaper j
reporter here. He brought the eggs

The eggs, according to the story
which is of the Kinston variety but
actually originated in Elkin, do not
equal in dimensions the ordinary
product of a Barred Rock or any
other heavy breed, but are more
akin In size to a bantam hen or r.
young pullet first beginning to lay.
When Sir Game's first product
was discovered in a coop which also
furnished a temporary lodging
place for some companion hens, the
owner not absolutely positive as to
the source of the fruit, but in ord
er to banish any doubt, took the
precaution to segregate the frtsky
rooster to a coop far removed from
the other feathered inhabitants of
the building. Two days later. he
cackled the proprietor to the scene,
to inspect his second accomplish
ment and after a similar interval,
repeated the feat, according to the
V alue Of Forage
Crops To Cleveland
(By James C. Elliott.'*
Raising winter oats, sowed in open
furrows is a sure crop and most val
uable for labor expended. Cotton
land In right condition, following
the pickers in October, should be
plowed with a narrow plow attach
ed to a guano distributor. This tears
out the side roots and with two fur
rows in the middle of the row,, mix
the seed oats with a liberal supply
of phosphate or complete fertillxer,
according to fertility of soil, or n
two-furrow distributor would save
time. Sow any kind of winter oats
chiefly Turf, Appier rust proof or
Fulgum, a pure strain of fulgum Is
best, with largest grain and softest
straw and about as forward as any,
coming crff in May. Cut cotton
stalk in March and sow lespedeza
for hay crop, followed by applica
tion of nitrate of soda.^which should
insure two bountiful crops. Cut oats
with mower or reaper, put up in
small stacks or balfed or threshed
for seed, should make from 40 to 60
bushels per acre. Sow two to three
bushels of fulgum per aero. Two
bushels of smaller grain is enough
for common, thin land. We sowed 10
bushels of fulgum oats last October
on this formula and I have never
before seen oats grow and look so
promising. Have a small rich lot
i that looks like they will make l(jp
bushels to the acre, two and one
half feet high and not beginning to
head. I got this formula from Bax
ter Suttle from whom I bought cer
tified pure imported fulgum oats.
He is somewhat inclined to exagger
ation and I did not accept all he
said about his oats, but so far they
have come up to his specifications,
and show how cheaply good oats can
be raised here, instead of buying
light northern oats and poor grades
of hay to raise cotton on.
And beardless barley Is qua! to
oats as good cheap feed. Then -vt
have lespedcza hay to follow small
grain, with sorghum, soy beaus, rye
and clovers. Barrett Whisnant sow
ed 30 aere. of bottom land and 20
acres of upland tn spring oats with
lespedeaa for hay. He made a big
crop of lespedeza last year and sav
ed seed. All forage feed crops take
less work and improve the land. All
cultivated crops require mush labor
and only good seasons and good
prices can show a profit. Cultivated
crops should be on hay stubble

SUM ONLY ISSUE
Prohibition Merely One Of Sever*!
Campaign i}ui'*tlons, Chairman
New York.—With the assertion
that he did not propose to make
prohibition the single issue in 1932,
Chairman John J. Raskob of the
democratic national committee sail
ed for Europr. He said that he did
not Intend to dictate the party's
nominee for president in 1932.
Both he and former Governor
Alfred El Smith, who bade him bon
voyage, denied that any sanctioned
survey had been made to determini*
the relative strength of the party's
potential candidates In 1932.
"I am not prepared to say,” said
former Governor Smith, "whom 1
will support for the nomination.”
"I have no information concern
ing the relative strength of Gover
nor Franklin D. Roosevelt or of
any other potential candidate," said
Mr, Raskob. “No one has made with
the sanction of the committee am
study with regard to the strength
throughout the country of the var
ious men, and none will be made." |
In a prepared statement Mr. Ras
Stob said he was “continually asked
whether I believe prohibition will b*r
the chief issue in the next cam -
"My opinion is that tire principal
and most important Issues will be
prohibition, the tariff, farm rellci
and economic problems, touching
principally on such social change,
as are necessary to lessen the se
verity of future depressions and
particularly the unemployment con
ditions Incident thereto. It is dif
