Who Will Lead?
There is a true saying that the
Lord helps those that help them
selves, also that the man who gets
shead can get all the help that he
To prove these sayings true and at
the same time get the atttention of
land owners on Twelve Mile River
and its tributaries is the object of
The Lord helps the farawer most
that helps himself by aessisting na
ture in various ways.
1st, The farmer that builds up bin
Iasd by deep plowing, correct ditch
ing, building rock dams across thI
hollows and in every way building up
the soil instead of destroying the pro
ducing qualities by plowing wet and
allowing the top soil to wash away
by incorrect terracing. Such a farm
er has or will have a good farm and
can get all the help he wants.
Why, you say when a man gets aF
start up? I say, no, it is because th.
renter or cropper sees that it is to hit
interest to work ) nd for the farme i
that looks after the little things and
keeps his land in good condition by
preserving it and building it up. We
all know that the red lands of the
piedmont section are the best for all
farming purposes when prooerly
handled. But, that is not %hat I
started to write about. What I want
to say is this, everybody that takes
notice to such things will tell You
that all the streams are filling up
last and that it will not be long be
fore all the bottom lands in the con'n

be as plentiful as in the swamps and
low lands of this state.
Now, as to the remedy, .will the
Good1 Lord and the people. improve
the situation? I say yes, becausp tehe
people make the laws, and when they
do their .part nature is suire to re
Sponid in, her mysterious way.
We have a la'v against rupning
saw dust into the streams, yet every
body knows that every shingle mill
and saw mill on the streams are rumn
nling their dust into them. Agamn
it a against the law to run water out
of the fields into the roads. Does it
pay to violate these laws? I say ne.
Now, a bushel of saw dues will do
more harm in a stream than a wagon
load of sand; ask any man that has
taken notice and he will tell you the
Then, we see fields where all the
water is run into the road and where
the plowman runs his plow ont into
the road breaking the bank so that
the water from every row will drain
away. What is the result? The life
of t~he land is drained away the sar~d
and the fine soil goes down the bill
into the little streams and soon fill
up the creeks and rivers by becoming
mixed with the ,dust from the saw
It may be your neighbor that is
violating the law and you do not want
to say anything. Theo would it not
be well for the . nd owners to get
together and see what can be done
about it? I say that if you will stop
the saw dust out of the streams, stop
plowing out into the roads and stop
running your terraces and upland
ditches inito the roads that nature
will do the rest. You will not only

Stop killing and driving all the Abb
out of the country, stop filling up
your neighbor'es streams. Save jour
own lands by running terraces in the
woods and - old delds. Don't break
the banks along the road. Takew the
rooks you think to be a -curse and
make them a blessing. Help your
self, help your neighbor, help every
body and then the Good Lord and
nature will help you. Scr ibbler.
The cribia is about to com', and it
is up to the people to keep it off.
