they will visit WinnsDorc. as meir
missiou is a very important one to

to be given a hearty welcome in case

should be made to show them the resources

TRIt TO RIDGE WAY.
Our local made a flying- trip to the
city of Iiidgeway 011 Thursday. lie
found everything and everybody on
the move. There are no grumblers in
that place; the merchants all seem
satisfied with the business of the past
year; they are not going- to rest on past
achievements., but expect to reach out
and increase the business of 1891 in as
great a proportion orer 1890 a6 1890
was oyer 1S89. It was really refreshing
to spend a few hours in a place the
size of llidgeway and not hear a single
person complain of hard time*. The
| people there seem to be all pulling togather,
having for their purpose the
advancement of ihe whole community,
i.; materia!, educational and social affairs.
The- re seem to be no drones or
pull-backs among them, and the result
is an improvement that can easily be
s?en. The sound of the saw and hammer
can be heard in different- directirmc
There seems to be a diversion of
sentiment with reference to the railroad
In connection with this trip we would
say that the road from Winnsboro to
liidgeway is, in some places, in such a
condition as to be a disgrace to a civilized
community, and while we know
the elements of late have been against
good roads, yet we think something
might and ought to ue uone to counteract
their bad effects, and place our
public highways in better condition.

The railroad election came off on
last Saturday, and the result so far as
shows that, (nr citizens are
determined that our old county shall
ret take the place that belongs to her,
as one of the finest and most progressive
counties 111 the State. We have
the official vote from only one voting
precinct, but enough has been learned
t? justify us iu saying that the subscription
to both the railroads has
been carried by a very large majority, j
The election in town passed off quietly,1
though there was a large crowd in |
town and much interest manifested. I
A large vote was polled, and it would 1

Our country friends voted almost

voted by citizens of the town with
perhaps two exceptions.

now in Chicago, two telegrams inquiring1
about the progress of the election,
and asking ta be informed as to the
result. Mr. McMaster telegraphed
late in the day that subscription had
been voted by a handsome majority.
On Monday morning Mr. McMaster
received the following telegram:

you upon your victory, and will have

A warning to the farmers of Fair- j
field and the same i* applicable to the
cotton belt, it i.? an eviiJent tact mat
we have reached the point of overproduction
ol cott?.*n and low piice?.
even below the cost of production, is
the inevitable revolt. The European
mat-Lets are now overstocked with
cotton good* atid cotton yarns.
The crop ot 1890 which will be
counted on the l*t of September this
year, in my opinion, will show a *urplns
over last year or the crop of 1889
j and 1S90 not less than one million of
bale?, ana prouaoir more.
j There was a surplus of 234,000 bales
on last September compared with the
previous j ear. The sooner the farmers
ascertain these facts and get to
work to remedy them, the better.
Bankruptcy is staring you-*p the face
when you plant for another crop like
last year. Now what is the remedy?
It is rery simple and plain, to sow
oats and nlanl corn to feed your stock.
an 1 in addition to that, plant corn
enough to bread your families and
would you have a surplus teed it to
hogs. Yoti can easily do this and
then raise al! the cotton that will be
wanted. Five millions of bales of
cjtton raised this year will bring yon
more dollars than eight millions, why
produce the extra three millions when
you cannot possibly derive any benefit.
I am thoroughly convinced that the
cotton belt of the United States is
destined to be the richest country in
the world, and iU destiny is in the
hands of the farmers, and you mint
let intelligently to develop it.
Many of you have doubled and even
trebbled the yield ?f cotton per acre
in the last few years by the judicious
use of fertilizers, now do the same
thing with grain, and you will soou be
the most prosperous people on the
face of the globe, and instead of hunting
diligently where you can borrow
