The State Farmors' Union of South
Carolina will meet in Greenwood,
A. T, GooDWnN, State Pres.
From every southern state comea
'the good news that a campaign, in
the interest of the Farmers' Union,
has been arranged for July and Au
gust from Routh Carolina west, and
South Carolina is 'now arranging
- 4 for a thorough campaign of the Pal
.rhe time is ripo and the farmers
are more ready to organize than ever
before known. Just'onq good man
' eqyh county of the South for one
. monthhoqrgutizing the farmers now
will prepare the way to save mill ons
for the farmer in marketing the
South's next cotton crop. It is not
enough to organize farmers for their
own- protection and go back home
thinking that the thing will work
itself. It will not do it. Every
county union in the south should sew
to it that at least one county news
paper in each county carry a column
>f direct news from organized farm
emS. Instead of this farmer's col.
umn working injury to the regular
Farmer's Union papers, it increases
the demand for such papers. The
conatry or county newspap'ers are
good mediums foi educating the
farmer along the business side of his'
.arming, and in order to keep up
-with the progress of the organized
'novements of the farmers, every
farme, 'should take at least one good
paper that will give him the news
direct as to how things are going.
-But in case satisfactory arrangements
cannot be made with the established
press to carry these farmers' col
umns in your home papers, a letter
addressed to this . bureau setting
forth the foots in the case, every
local union will be supplied with
sample copiea of the best and
cheapest papers in the land of the
South, which will enable e each union
to make its own selection at large
In order to keep in touch with the
latest prices, plans and methods of
combining - your strength for the
good of all, the farmer'must read the
aews from reliable sources whioh
will save money enough on one bale
of cotton to pay for five or six good
There are so many grades of hu
mnanity, called farmers, that no one
institution or plan could be expected
to please all. The best evidence in
the world to prove that the Farmers'
-Union stands for something is that it
is opposed by some individuals, that
is, it is doing tliings. Of course
this don't suit some folks because
they are opposed to doing anything.
Especially somethbing that they hap
pen to not originate or that does not
-give to them some advantage of their
fellow-man. All the "graf ters" don't
happen to be cotton speculators, nor
do they all live in New York. Pos
eihty one of the most contemnp'ible
brand is the fellow that lives next
,eighbor to some oJpber fellow and is
I .ways on the lookout for Bomne op)
<9rtunity to work a skini game on his
bother farmeir, not aliways in a
irse trade at that. YOU can always
I them, for a they are opposed to
xyftling that goos -to make us one
great body of brethren, that don't
givo them some special advantage
over the rest of their brothers. They
won't co-operate; got them out of the
ullioni quick, for they will destroy
more of your opportunity to success
than all the host of speculators and
gamli blers combined. The Farmers'
Union has nothing to fear from men
that have not the password, but
death and failure lurk in your locals
at ill times from ignorance and trai
tors, in the purity of your locals and
the faithful practice of your individ
ual members of the principles of co
Operation and submission to "UIon,
which means the local must follow
and practice what the county ap
proves and directs, and that the
county faithful1lv administer what is
directed by the state, and as the
membors are held in the local mem
berahip so will the union prosper,
indl its strength be. Members count
against the union when their princi
ples are against co-operation, and
plads put forward to bring results.
Dutside of this you cannot have a
mnion. It is not expected that every
nan that has to till the soil can or
vill be union, nor were the principles
>f our constitution made broad
moogh for every kind of ism or the
)rist to get aboard, but on the con
rary confines its creed to specific"
>rinciples and those that believe in
he doctrine of profits and "make
noney" in whatever Way open cannot
>e true members and should be de
lied. Nor should the union become
,be asylum of all the incompetent
Irones and .deadbeats that cAn be
ound "staying" on a farm. Union
iuccess does nut depend on numbers,
,ut -in specific principles and the liv
ng up to them.
A local can be. as dead with fifty
pombers as with flive. And if they
efuse to co-operate with the other
oasis they are no longer in 'the
mion. They have bolted, and are
io longer entitled to be called union
There is more to fear from one
rascal in the union than a hundred
Mtside. Push them all outside or
hhey destroy you.

Markets doem the Natural Abode of
The unpolished phraseology, nn
tive though not peculiarl to this
quarter of Londoh, has given rise bo
j; to the proverbial use of the nameic
Billingfsgate. "One may term this )ui
e the Esculine gate of London," says
r old Fuller. "1lere one IIay hear
linguas jurgatrices." The seven
it teenth cenitury references to the lLs
"rhetorie" or obscene lagwiage of
n the market are friequent, and hence
foul language itself is called "bit
0 lingsgate." In "Vaniity Fair," too, ra
c Thackeray tells up how Mr. O borne s8t
cursed Billingsgate with an empha- to,
0 as worthy of the place.
1 It is curious how markets are the
h natural abode of strong language. bo
It Thus the French equivalent for Of
, "You are no better than a Billings- th4
or gate fish fag" is "Your compliments int
are like those of the Place Mau- 00
bert," the Place Maubert being not
A ed for its market.
In the good old days the Billings
gato porters seem to have thorough- en
y enjoyed themselves, for one Bang
ford, writing in 1715, says: "This
being to my mind another ancient tol
custom that hath been omitted* of
e late years. It seems that in former M,
'r times the porters that plied at Bil- ha
f lingsgate used civilly to entreat and
W desire every man that passed that
Y, way to salute a post that stood there
in a vacant place. If he refused to
r, do this, they forthwith laid hold of JU
Y him and by main force bumped him
1 against the post. But if he quietly TL
K_ submitted to kiss the same and paid
down sixpence they gave him a At
name and chose some one of the
gang for his godfather. I believe
this was done in memory of some U1
Y, ,old image that formerly stood there,
e. perhaps Belus or Belin." W
!t The Qriginal porters of Billings
1: gate belonged to one of the oldestC
labor guilds in the country, the Fel
lowship of Porters, and at one time
the carrying work both at Billings- j1
as gate and from the wharfs to the
re warehouses of 'the city within a cer
er tain radius was entirely performed I
ar by them.-London Globe.
