Pendleton, South Carolina.
Here are some good rules to paste
- up in your books to be road out the
first thing at the beginning of the t
business feature of your mueetirags:
1. Are we union men?
2. Do we know that to be good
Union men we must submit to the
will of the majority?
3. Have we come together for the
4 purpose of combining our strength
for the good of the fraternity as a
whole, or have any of us assembled
for self-aggrandizement of pecuniary
interest of individuals or cliques?
4. Have we come together for the
purpose of hunting up good things
to talk of for our benetit, or are we
hunting for more trouble by talking I
over the mean things that others
5. When you want a thing done
be sure to get very busv lmen to do it I
for you; never think of appointing
men to do important work for the
Union that are not now, nor never
were, worth a cent for anything.
9. If you are out looking for good
you will be sure to find something
good, and if you are out looking for
bad things you will find more of this
than you want very soon.

L ictl Farmers' Unions are some
A thing like good crops, they thrive best
when planted on good soil in the
counl ry and where well cultivated.
One reason for this is that when
local Unions meet in the towns there
18 more or less bu'siness and other
attract ons that dr v nembers away
front the met tongs in town while
there is usually no other than Union
business that comies before local
meetings in the country.
No doubt 3 ou are getting sorter I
lashed out oi so much cotton talk
and need a change. Better get up a i
hog and hominy talk at your next I
local meeting. We had one in the <
Pendleton Farmers hall last Satur- r
day and some of the boys got right <
hungry before we got balf through c
with the sausage and liver pudding i
subject. Mr. B. Harris stated that t
he had grown pork at less than three
*andl a half cents per pould, and 13ro. a
.Richardson vouched for the fact that
be knew of it farmer tiat had raised 3
a large family off oh t hie prodt(ucts of
a hlog farm where the e uniimoni cit- f
roln, grown in anlitong thet corn, wvere
the chiefl or prinoipal hog food in
. iowinlg hogs. As. ninv know these
commoflin citrons may be housed and
fed through the winter with better
results than the common pumpkin
and( are many times more abundant
and a sureO crop,.
It was t he general consensus of
oli in among the farmers at this I
og and hoiny mieeting thatt it costs I
too nmuch t) uindeirtako toC grow hogsi
0on gratinl. Tturniips, siorghumn, po

MILL MAN SQUEALS.
We have before our Farmers'
Union Bureau a letter to our Burt au
rom a cotton mill man that would
tstonish many of our Farmers
Union men. Beyond doubt many of
ur southern cotton mills are in it
nuch worse tied-up condition than
ur cotton growers who spen I a lot
)f their timue cussing these same mt-1
ton that are in ten times worse fix
mnd tied-up subjects to their selling
igents than cotton growers are borne
town upon by New York Cotton Ex

marness of cotton bears by growing
,heir own foodstufls. But these
nutheru mill men who own the mi
