DEAR BRETHREN:-As chair

"here is no time to b

ri Orangeburg, Feb. 16-17.
I have in my possession 15 en
olhment blanks and certificate
ards, which must be signed
roperlv and furnished the dele
ate to secure his or her enroll
unit, and free ente.tainment
uring the session.
In the early spring we hope
'have a great county associa

eedingly anxious to send1 from
he county at least 15 delegates
n attend the state meet ingA.

iformation and the spirit of
. S. work.
The pastors of the state are
rged to attend, and are c'on
idered members, but many of
hem cannot pay the expenses
f the trip. Let me beg that
he church make up a small
urse, sendl to their pastor, and
equest him to go. It will.be a
ood investment for the church.
Ie will bring Lack to vou a
toek of information that he will
:et nowhere else so perfectly.
Let any Sunday school that
vill send delegates write to me
t once for blanks and certifi

idual or pastor who will go, let
ae know at once, and I will
end in name to entertainment

There was more wheat sown

be for the better on it.
Owing to the pretty weather
hi Janiary some farmers began
to prepare for another crop.
ThaIt's right; an early start is
half the battle. We look for a
cold, late spring, and when a
day comes that a farmer can
work he should make use of it.
There's always something to do.

the poor farmer has sold out.

Parsons, of Liberty, can do that.
He tells the writer that he has
sold enough of last year's cotton
to pay for his guano and run
hin and all his hands this year,
and still have 18 or 19 bales lying
in his yard. Mr. Parsons says
he never allows a hand on his
place to go in debt only to him.
He ascertains exactly] how much
cash a. month it will take to run
the family. At the end of each

that much moneyA-. books it

hand leave at any time, Mr.J
savs his work will tally with
the advancement. If he stays
till his cotton is gathered he
hauls it to Mr. Parsons' yard,
and he (Parsons) allows the
market lPicWe for the renter's
part. He charges no interest on
the nw ner. We have never
heard of MIr. Parsons having
any trouble with his hands. If
other' landlords would 0 o this,
would it not h)e b)etter f%tsboth
landk,rdi and tenanti' better
tenants could( then be had. If
both landlord and tenant would
work to eac h other's advantage
would it not b)e better for both?
When a landlord gets a good
tenant or a good tenant gets
with a good landlord, isn't it
best not to make a change?
