THE SINGLE CROP MANIA.
The Mai 1011 c ?rre-ponJeut of the j
News an 1 Courier wriie-s quite ?j
thoughtful letter to tint new paper or J
tobacco r&ioing in Mati->n County j
No tobacco is raided in Fail Geld, but
some of the tboushu expres e<1 by this
correspondent should be impressed on
farmera generally. Besides if it can
be shown that Marion C >untv farmers {
have made money by planting tobacco, ]
it may infl lence FairfHd farmers Jo j
imitate thempn so far as the ioSkcco
farmer has succeeded, ami avoid Wi<
mistakes.
All farmers do not get the behest
price* for their tobacco becanse pc me
are more experienced and expert ti an
ethers aad all do not pnt the a'lie
quality of tobacco on tin mirke-.
"Mu:h of the tobacco," says the correspondent,
l"has been made by men
who never planted tobacco before this
year, and some of it doe? not show up
in color as well as it should." "Mos^
of the better grades are being made
by experienced men. Still, some of
the new men are making a very fine
quality of leaf."
He then proceeds to give an instance
of what can be done in raising the ctop:
"Mr. Floyd has been offered $950 for
his crop of tobacco in his pack hon6e
al home, and has declined the effer.
He say8 he has paid out for labor only
$2 50, all the other"work being done
by hitaself and: family." Of ourse,
it is not every man who can. or will,
do Lis own labor, but as the conespondent-suggests
ntbere is more
money in tobacco than any other crop
for the* farmer who can manage it
without too mich hired labor." "It
is the boon of the man with a large
family (o support." 7
Tha observation that we desire es-pecia'ly
to direct attention to is that
' not a few farmers, who are in a po
sition to know whereof they speak,
say that there is danger that tobacco
in this county (Marion) will soon be
as great king as cotton," and "already
with some farmer* all other crops are
being neglected for the sake of tobacco."
This single crop mania has
dethroned king cotton, and the throne
will crumble nnder tobacco if the same
policy is pursned. It is strange that,
though, ordinary common sense should
teach one that it is exceedingly dangerous
to rely on one single crop, yet
farmers will persistently do it- A
diversified crop minimizes los3 by
drought or otber cause, for the very
obvious reason that the chances for
success in one or more of several
crops is better than in one. Failure in
all kinds of crops is rare. Some cot
ton, Borne tooaceo, some wneat, some
oats, and some of other kinds is much
better policy than all of one kind.
Overproduction is not apt to occur
under snch a system, and a success i i
one or more is practically certain.
GREEN WOOD'S TROUBLES.
The citizen? of Greenwood have
gone vigorously to work to bring
about peace and good order in the
couutv.
It is not an ordinary case of lynching
that the good people ofGreenwood
have united to remedy. Not
depending on the officers of the law
the mass meeting appointed an investigating
committee to find out exactly
what was at the bottom of the trouble.
The committee reported, according
to the correspondent of the News and
Courior, "that while it wa* all the
outgrowth of the Phoenix riot, it had
no direct connection with it." "The
several whipping.1?, at as many different
times and places, were probab'y
due to as many cau3e3."
The causes, as found by the committee,
illustrate how far lawlessness
will go when once started.
"The first case was that of a negro
wh), it wa9 reported, was organizing
a plot against Pbceoix, and one, who,
it was thought, took part in the uprising
last fall.1' Granting ?hat there
wa3 some excuse for this, note bow
easy it was for the lawless to 6nd another
victim. So that "the second was
found to be a personal matter between
? a white man and negro."
The coanaitr?e find that there is
6ome evidence to show that the pur
pose is "to frighten the negroes away
so that white renters could get the
lands cheap." "The committee found
also some differences and friction
among white neighbors, which were
conducive to the state of anarchy
among renegade white men."
No counij in the State should envy
Greenwood in her lawlessness, and it
is hoped tb'it her bsst citizens will
succeed in putting a stop to it.
A Mother Tells How She Saved Her Little
Daughter's Life.
I am the mother of eight children
and have had a great deal of experience
with medicines. Last sammer
my little daughter had the dysentery
in its worst form. We thought she
would die. I tried everything I could
think of, but nothing seemed to do her
any good. I saw by an adverti-ement
in our paper that Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy whs
highly recommended and sent and got
a bottle at o^ce. It proved to be one
of the very best medicine* we ever had
in the house It saved tn<- little daughters
life. I am anxious for ever}'
mother t) know what an excellent
medicine it is. Had I known i at first
it would have saved me j g: e it de*l of
anxiety and my little daughter much
suffering.?Yours truly, Mus. Geo. F.

Oar fd-aiers are ajvr bn-I'y eugig-.-d
'harve'tiij their crops. Cotton is
opening rapidly, especially so on
sandy laids. Generally speaking, the
cotton crop is very poor indeed. Al
thongh there are some very good
cropp, the most of them are
not much account. Several bales have
been marketed from this section.
Fodder pulling from upland corn
about finished. The yield was in some
instances uLusaally heavy. Upland
corn is very good. Young corn is not
doing so well. A rain wonld be very
beneficial to it now.
Sorghum cane not as good as it was
last year. This can be attributed to
?' "
lack of sufficient ram. some 01 our
neighbors have alrea-iy made op their
molasses.
Peas aud potatoes are doing well.
We think there has been more land
devoJfd to these two valuable and indispensable
crops this year than has
been thr- c\se heretofore in years.

' -KNOWLEDGE IS POWER."
Mr. Ediior: A dry sreil since the
Confederate reunion i?i Chester has
damaged '.he crop very much from
White O k via Woodwards and on
towards ('hes er, aod I cx:mot say
where it s ops. Times art- very har.i.
It is said tfcat it is an ill v I th it
blows do good. This cro;. i;i
peal the l'yn law?the worse lav tliat
was ftvp.r t?nat>ted iuSinth
and it m ?y do more. It will carry
many gx><> merchants t) the wa'l; but
few men lave ever made mouey out
of it. In brighter days it t a? set up
the labor, made tramps out of good
negroe-, a :d, I suspect, loafers out of
some whit-;. The time has come when
we must fcuve bread and meat at homy,
imorove our lands, oav for labor iast
as ti tle a> possible, do more work
ourselves, u^e better machinery, put
our ^boys on the rake?, plows and
mowers a' J teach tbem to mate bread
and meat. All of (he professions are
ful'. The.are more clerks and boys
seeking c erksLips than are required
to sell all t f the goods that are manufactured?oven
if there were plenty of
buyers. It is so all along tbe iioe.
We are pleased to see so muob interest
taken iu the school for teachers.
One art th:i^ I think might be tanght
with benelit is bread-making, cooking,
&c. I ocoe knew a gentleman that
married a tine looking, edncated lady.
He wished to show beroff and gave
a big dii-.ner. Late in ibe evening
dinner was ?annonnced. After tbe
nsaal ceremonies they begau to partake
of dinner, when the gentleman ot
ceremonics called for breal. His
beautiful wife, very much embarrassed,
had to say, c:Mercv, to forget
the bread," Now, don't forget tbe
staff of life. I am s^rry to see so
little interest taken in the school by
male teachers; 't ore may judge by
tbe attendance, for it is the male
teacher who must take charge of the
rougher class and regulate them. Tiie
boys who are mean at sixteen aud
sometimes earlier must bo tempered
with the rod. Every educated'man
knows the lifijience between a female
aud a iqjiI.' teacher. The lady suits to
teach s.;?a:l boys aad girls, to teach
music and far.cy work, typewriting,
to their own set. We need such
men a? Andrew McLurkin and a Mr.
Stewart wi:o did so mucn good work
iu the dark corner in 1S50G0. They
not onl\ u ed the rod, but in obs inate

It is very probable that many who are

the awful change, and the time is not

Moore, the sheriff, and thanked him

i was very grateful. Jacobs then said
to the sheriff: "I am now ready to die;
' you can bi>w to your duty as soon as
you desire." To" which the sheriff
(who is a mo6t humane and gentlemanly
man) replied that he did not
wish to hurry him, that the time would
not be oat for two hoars. Jac.bs
then observed: "An hour or two can
make no difference wi h me, and the
people are no doubt anxious to retaru
dome, and I am unwilling to detain
them." The sheriff then {roceeded to
tie his hands behind him, when he reminded
him that it was unnecessary.
The sheriff told him that if they were
ne t tied he would involuntarily catch
at the rope. Jacob9 told him theD to
tie them, but that he did not apprehend
that such would be the cise, for
he came to die wit h^hristian fortitude
and not to struggle vvun aeata. men

near him he submitted to his fate, aud
in a few moments was launched into
eternity.
