Notice is hereby given that every
local union after the expiration of 30 fv
days-or before the first of OctolberJ ti
1907 vill be required to assemble In
and vote on the new amendment to C
the South Carolina Constitution inak
ing the dues double what they are Si
now. This increase in dues will put al
new life into the union and forward P
the work of organizing the State. b
This increase of dues may cause it
eome few lukewarm membern to drop P
out of the union wbicb should be an Of
argument in its favor, for the reason t
that all such people that think and 01
work for the principle of asking their
best men to work foi nothing are not a
the kind of men needed in your ut.- P
ion. That idea of not paying men to e
do things for the good of all that has Y
been saving such enormous amounts d'
in the value of cotton alone, will have ft
to go. Drop all such ideas and memi
hers too that utick to the principle ifa
asking others to leave their work and
homes to work without pay.
COTTON SCHOOL AT CLEMSON. P
For some time the farmers' Union g
of South Carolina has been looking r
into the feasibility of establishing a r
cotton school on their own account,
not knowing that Clemson College "
was already well equipped for this P
Now, it is no news to the up-to o
date cotton grower to tell him that c
beyond doubt this state loses anonu
ally enough cotton money by arbitra- el
ry grading to build a warehouse at d
most of the shipping points in the tl
state. This thing of trusting the grad. o
iog and classifying of cotton to the tI
ordinary 2x4 "cotton slasher" of the tc
country must go with the privilege of w
priceing our cotton.
We must get up some real good ex.
pert cotton graders, or classifyors
that do this work from the stand- p
point of the requirements of the w
mills, and cut out this imposition of m
the common so called expert cotton '&I
graders who are more on the order of ti
expert liars than they are classifyers ci
of cotton. I call for a commiittee
from the union to go to Clemson and ti.

and let the people know how it is. w

II The late Hon. George D. Tillman,
is who was much more of a conservative J.
d student, philosopher and statesman
than his aggressive brother, once
a made a singular statement. He had
>f carefnlly examined the history of
e- mankind and once after pondering
ir on the human drama, seriously ri -
marked: "It is a strange thing and
i- much perplexes nie that the' drink
r- iug nations of the earth are moie
>- potent in all things, even in religion,
le than the prohibition ones. Take
Is England and Germany, for example.
le They are in the front rank in all ex- F
-s ploritation, while the prohibition na. J.
r tione, like Turkey. China and the

The Chinese resort to opium. True,
- it was forced up n them at one time,
e but it has become a national vice.
y The Turk is called "unspeakable,'
t and apparently substitutes carnality
o for liquor."
Another gentleman, and like Mr.
Tillman, a temperate man in both
ke eating and drinking, said: "The 'O!d
r South,' as it is called, not by any
t means in favor of prohibition, but
against it, had in its population a g
better and a raulier race than the r
0 people of to-day. It raised leaders
le and armies that will command the
ie admiration and wonder of the world
e to the end of time. .I do not say
1 that these glorious men were the
product of liquor-drinking, but that t]
a the use of liquor, in a majority of
t cases moderately, did not sap their
manhood, degenerate their brains or
le emasculate their spiritual nature. In ti
point of fact there was far more true t
I religion among the old slaveholdeos
than there is to-day, when infidelity, y
Y agnosticism, higher culture and uni
r v.-real education are tryin'to play
havoc with orthodox truths."-[Au
