Stock Law Interview.
Practical Views of W. F. Walton, Fs?j.
MEETING ST., June 25, 1881.
QUESTION. Your ideas upon Farm
ing were very good; now what do you
think about, thc stock law ?
ANSWER. I have told som? of my
. friends I would write something on
the stock-law, bul. I have neglected
to do so as some people are opposed
to the law, and it seems to worry
them ro see'anything wrtten on the
quei?ion; but I have never failed to
give my views on auy matter touch
ing the public good.
Q Do you think it would be to cur
interest to have the sto?k law passed?
A. It could result in nothing else
but the interest of our people, and it
is the best law the country could
u'ake, if the peopie would only look
at the advantages of it, and make up
their minds to go into it with a
good will. There are some men
whom it would not benefit, but they
would be just as well off with it as
Q. Do you think it pays a mm to
ruse stock in the country?
A. No, sir. This is not a stock
cou..try. Where is the man in this
country who mikes his living raising
stock ? Sir, the people of this coun
try make their living by their farms;
they neglect the stock and. you see
but few; and what we have are usu
ally poor. And it surprises no one,
for the stock' are expected by the
owner to get a living in the woods,
where they get only a bare subsist
ence. Take the cows for insUnce;
how nagi? ced these poor creatures
are 1 Yet milk and butter are great
things to w poor man, in the way of a
living. A cow on a small lot with a
little attention, is worth two that go
at large. We do not have many
stock, but wc do not need as many as
Q. Before the war we never hearu
of any one who wanted the stock law;
if we and our forefathers auld live
without it, why can't we now ?
A. Ah ! Sir, there has been quite
a change since the war. and that
change demands that we should make
a change too. Our very changed cir
cumstances qemand the change. Be
fore the war all the farms aud stock
were managed and controlled by the
whites, and we did not have many
renters, and our farm fences were
kept in a good condition; but you can
see easily the sadness of the matter
now. Very much ol our lands is
rented and managed by colored peo
pie, a little farm here and there, each
man not knowing that he will stay
on the place the neit year, and, ol
course, careless whether the fences
are in good condition or not, just so
he can manage to get through the
year. Well, the ieuc^s are left lov.
down, and the stock learn to jump ?>
low fence, and this teaches them tc
jump a high one, and the first thing
yon know your young oat crop, or
some other crop, is altogether roi* ed
by the stock. More than that, no
man needs as much land under a
pasture tence aa he would require to
encircle his farm; and as the tice is
at hand when we all have to work,
we ought to study every advantage
to make our Work count, and to live
on the cheapest plan. There are
numbers of rich spots scattered here
and there, some fiat place some turn
in the creek, and many places we
could work that we now cannot, and
we could leave ont also many old
hills that we do work, for these hills
cannot, be PO easily improved as level
Q. Would not this law work a great
hardship to the men v;bo rent land
and work on shares ?
A. If it will suit any class of peo
ple in the world, it is that class. It
has always been a mystery to me to
know that they oppose the stock law
The most of them have got. no stock
any way, arid if yu look or ask to
give every man hts ii ties and just
rights, 1 never thoughtthete was any
justice in compelling a po jr, hard
working man to lenee up hts crop to
keep his wealthy neighbor's herd of
etock from eating it np. Let eve y
man take care ol his own stock, and
not require yon to fence up your field
where you make bread in order to
allow your neighbor's stock to pick
their living where they please. It is
true a few poor men have some stock,
put the land requisite for pasturage
for (his stock is nothing to. compare
with the land that is worked/- by far
mers.' Often you can f^nce in a piece
of land for a pasture that is fit for
Q.. Bat suppose tho labcriug man
could not get land on which to pas
A. That is ridiculous. They can
get land for a pasture just as easily
as they can get land to work. Every
man who has land and wishes to rent
t, will be sure to have pastures pro
vided for the tenant5'; if he fails to do
jo, his neighbor will have the pasture
md get the hands.
Q" But don't you .suppose the la
>orerR would be charged something ;
br the privilege of pasturage- ?
A. I presume every man would
.equire a few rails to be placed on the
??asture fence by tue hands, just as
hey are now required to do on the
arm fences, if they were charged
i-iditional rent, the. nixt year they
jould go to your neighbor who did
Q. What would some of us do
about water in our pastures'.'
A. That is the grea'est trouble
But thai couid be arranged. Every
planter hassome ?train or ravine on
the place, and in this, there could be
made s, drain winch would hold a
nond of water nearly all the time
B it in case even thar, went dry, it
would be just as easy to tote water
or to drive the stock to the well, as it
is to drive the.? up every evening.
Those too who cannot have conve
nient water in the summer, would be
better oil' not to have mauy stock.
Q. If we had the stock law we
could not pasture our harvest li elds.
A. That is what is the matter with
our lands now; we pasture them to
death. The greatest profit. I ever got.
trom a harvest field wa* to lei. the
weeds and grass grow, t ? make the
land produce well and grow better
We need thiB law for this one thiui;:
an 1 besides, if a man wants (to pas
ture his harvest fields, the stock law
\ i?e not propos3 lo deprive him of
that right; he ctn build as many
fences, and ha/e then justas high,
as he pleases still.
Q. You ee^m to think we do not
need much stock, ami sm di lots or
pastures will do them.
A. Experience is tay best guido in
all things. Three years ago I put
my cows in a small lot, not more than
two aerej to the head, with auy [lick
ings on it. I have kept them there
ever since. I only keen two milch
C3WS. I have had plenty of milk and
butter tn arly all the time. My cows j
have been fat enough for beef at any
season. I give them no extra alten- j
rion in the summer; through the win- j
ter I feed them on shucks, and about ?
four or five bushels of corn and jieas- j
One of them now gives more milk
than both of them did. when they ',
went at large, it takes a sight of ex- !
ercise for a cow to pick up K living j
rambling about, and I find it mete
convenient to get them up and have
them milked by having a small pas
ture. No milch cow should roam at
large, if you expect anything of her.
O dy let the stock law be passed and
people will be obliged to take care of
th;ir stock, and our stoc k will be
tx>. How will the poor widow do,
who has no pas*ure, and lives on
h sr stock?
A. Well, the cns? ol the poor wid
ow has always been a hard one, as
out Savior illustrates when speaking
of the widow s mite. But ii' any
widow thinks it is right to jake her
living off her neighbor's, land without
his consent, she has an equal right to
anything eist- that, is her neighbor's
But in tact most widows who have
many stock, own land, ami they can
build a pasture fence as easily as they
ctn a farm fence. Those who have
absolutely nothing, will certainly
contiune to receive at tbe hands of
the more fortunate, that charity which
they deserve, and which our good
citizens are always willing to bestow
ed. Yon seem to very anxious to
have the law passed ?
A. Yes; our timber is getting scarce
and it is too expend ve to do so much
work for nothing. The fences make
the land no better. I also think ii i*
the wish of a large maj rity of our
j people. They have seen ami heard
how well it worked in Abbeville; and
in fact those who lived near the 11ne,
where they could look ovei in Abbe
ville and see the advantages of it,
h tve torn loose from ns and paR?ed it
up there ;ibout Cooper Towuship, un
der difficulties. They could not. wait.
Of course if I thought a majority op
posed the law, I would be willing to
work on in our present way, but it is
a very expensive way 1 assure you.
,1 Startling Phenomenon hi S. ?.
A correspondent of the Raleigh
Nhcftand Obitcivcr, writes the follow
ing of a water spout which appeared
at Coosaw, S. C , on last Saturday
"A heavy black cloud appeared at
the month of I'arrott cronk, and the
water below seemed moved by its in
iiuenee. In 8 short, time a dark attn,
as it were, proti tided from the cloud

could be telt (brat leas! half a mile
by parties on a phosphate li?t. Sep

THE "RED 0AT"--100PER
GRAY TOWNSHIPS AHEAD.
The Stork Law.
MESSRS. EDITORS : Your compli
mentary mention of the amount of
taxes paid in by Gray Township at
the retient collection, prompts me to
give you a few more dots about her
The grain crop generally is a fail
lite, but we have six farms that, to
gether, har zested about lb',000 bush
els ot red oats. There are owned
and run in Gray Township, six Buck
eye reapers and two steam thresher.-;
and next season if the oat crop is
good will find the number of reapers
doubted. And several sulky turning
plows will be bought to put in the
crop this I'd ll.
Four o? the above named larmerat
making about I0;000 bushels of oats,
are in the stock law section: ami the
corning fall will lind every available
piece ol' old field sown in the glori
ous red oat, and largely put in with
the most approved implements. Our
best oats, are made on old fields turn
ed under, and the oats harrowed" in.
Four of the reapers and one of the
threshers are in th'* stock law section;
am.! as soviu as the grain was harvest*
ed, (he thresher outside geared np in
j ali haste and sailed into the stock
? law section to thresh. Ol' .course
! these oats were sown before the stock
law was actually passed, bntthe pros
pect "I the law gave new impetus to
farming in general; and now that we
don't need fences the way is open, by
the use ol improved machinery, to
make enormous crops of grain with
very littie labor.
By the way. Messrs. Editors, we
ar? selliug a patent churn, and every
one sold has been to parties living
nmfor. the stock law. The outside
j folks have had a lair chance at. the
j churn, and pronounced it, a good
J ?bing, hilt the trouble is that it is now
i . j u : t e dry, mid their cows expend
their strength running over the conn
try in search of food, ami can't alford
to give mille, while cows that are kept,
in pastures cannot ramble, and hence
are in better order ami give more
and richer milk. Butter from cows
kep! in pasture is lound to be much
richer ami more palatable than that
from cows that are allowed to fatigue
and heat themselves by roving over
the neighborhood. Much less pasture
land is reo o? red for stock than is gen
erally supposed. There are several
pastores in tiii-- section that, amply
support one head ol stock to each
acre. We are keeping S cows, S sheep
and ii hog-s, besides pigs, on about 3">
acres ol ordinary old hold, two small
wet weat her I ira riches run n ing th rou sh
it; and the stock are in good order
notwithstanding the severe- drought.
The opposition has dwindled down to
one man; and ide darkies aie now

Now, Messrs. Editors, we want the
remainder of lite county to share i lie
good ol the stock law, and invite you
up to see for yourself, and also all
the doubting ones; for we want to ?jpe

hog, put in the entire State, abolish
the lien law, pass a prohibition law,
and thus open the way for a prosper

Here is Laura's composition on the

legs on the under side, one on each

legs, but it's not used to stand on.
The cow kills Hies with her tail. A
cow lids big ears, I hat wigg'e on

an elephant. She is made small, so
she can go in the hain-door when

A moat ludicrous scene transpired
in a place not & thousand milis from
the city of Louisville one nigU the
other week, which, though a little
annoying to the parties immediately
concerned, was just so innocent and
funny that we cannot refrain from
giving the general outlines, suppress
mg name ol' course. Two slightly
aud beautiful young ladies were vis
iting their cousin, another sprightly
and beautiful yoting lady, who, like
her guesLs, was of that, hajpy age
that turns everything into fun ?-nd
merriment. If th? truth were told,
we fear that we should have, td record
the fact thar these three miss* were
just a little, bit. fast. They wefe tond
of practical jokes,and were constantly ,
playing al! sorts of pranks wifb each
other. All three occupied a thora on
the ground floor, and cuddled! np to
gether in the bed.
Two of the young ladies a?inded a
party on the night, in ?pleatiou, and
did not go home until J l.&J ?o'clock
at night. As it was late tlniy con
cluded not. to disturb the household,
so they quietly stepped into their
room through the low open vindow
In about half an hour aftir they
had lett for the party a young Meth
odist minister called at the' house,
where they were staying, andi craved
a night's lodging which of course was
granted, /.s ministers always have
the best of everything, the old lady
put him to sleep in the best room,
and the young lady, Fannie, who
had not. gone to' the party, was in
trusted with the. duty of sittit g up
for the absent ones, and of informing
them of the change of rooms. She
took up her post in the pat lor, and,
as the night was sultry, sleep over
came her, and she departed on ari
excursion lo tlie land of dreams.
We will now return to the young
ladies who had gone to their room
through the window. By the dim
light ol' the moonbeams, a* they
struggled through the curtains, the
young lailies were able to descry the
outlines of Fannie (as they supposed)
ensconsccd in the middle of the bed.
They saw more-to wit: a pair ol
boots. The ti nth dashed upon them
at once. They saw it all. Fannie
[ hail set. the boots in the room to give
them a Hoare. They put their heads
together and determined lo Urn ?he
tables on her. Silently they disrobed
and stealthily as cats they took their
positions on eaehsideof the bed. At
a give:: signal they both jnmjied into
the bed, one ott each side ol the un

.'Gracious, gals ! It Va man -it's a

There was on? prolonged, consoli
dated scream, a ?lash ol muslin
through the door, and all was over.
The best ol the joke is that the
minister took the whole thing in eat

girls. He would bear no excuse, but,
solemnly folded his official robes
about him and silently stole away.

A Forward Movement.
We welcome this Revised Version
because it is a forward movement iu
the light direction. Tile conserva
tism of the English Committee pre
vented as radical a revision as we
could have desired, vet had they
done more than they did, their work
would not have beeu received by the
British public. As it is,there is loud
dissent by a large body of English
men at. the changes made, many of
the clergy joining in the cry. Jn this
country, the American Committee not
only assented t J the changes made,
but desired to make others, which the
English Committee would not allow.
What these changes are is recorded
at the desire of the American Com
mittee in an Appendix. We are
pleased to say that the Revision is

Steel Wire Pence.
I ACH year the question of the cheapest and at the same time the most,
durable and effective lenee becomes more prominent, and it has remainedl
for the firm of SEDGWICK BROS. to solve the problem. This they have
done by the invention of m tchinery by which wire can be rapidly made.*
into a double-twist-net work of diamond shaped mesh. This is conceded
by all who have seen it, to be the most scientific and economical manner in
I which steel or iron can he used to insure the greatest strength and durability*
j The SEDGWICK STEEL WIRE FENCE is the only general purpose wire
. lenee in use. Being u net-woik without barbs, it will keep out small pigs
j as well as the most vicious stotk with no possibility of injury. It shelters
I no enemies ro crops oi poultry, and makes no Rhade. It is just THE FKNCK
for Gardners, Farmers. Stock Raisers and Railroad?, and is very desirable
for Lawns, i'arks, Cemeteries and Front Yards.
For nearly alI'f)iiclo?ui'c*N au<l Ibra Better Fence
Kconouiy, the *e?l?%% iel* Fence has? rio cifual. ~
Being dipped in mat-proof paint it* will last a lifetime, and is better
than board fence in every respect. It is of much greater strength and div
rability than barbed fence, lt is not affected by heat and cold owing io
ii.s peculiar eonsiruction, allowing contraction and taking np all expansion*
Stock may run against it without injury to either stork or fenee. Pigs amil
! Poultry are restrained better than by any other fence. We ask for il a fair
tiial, fully believing that all our customers will he satisfied. Wire net-work
is no new thing, but we have reduced the CO*t tinlil it is within the.
reach of fanners.
We specially recommend our fence for bottom lands, as it. will allow Irre
passage of water and eau be arranged so as to hang fast in places, even when
the Hood will tpar out the posts in more PX posed planes. None of it wil!
This fencing, as ?ts name implies, is made of the beat annealed sled
wire. The margin wire, i. e. top and bottom wirti, run nearly straight, and
are No. ?, which is common sk'.e telegraph wire. The body wires are No.
Li. The breaking strain of No. 9 is about 2,f?00 pounds, and of No. li!
about. SCH) pounds. The measure of the mesh is the extreme length and
breadth of the opening, and a poetal card will not go through a live inch
mesh without touching at the four corners.
No single wire is expected to break with less than SOO pounds strain
and the wire will break before the twist will slip.
52 inch fenee, five inch mtflb, is a very good farm fence; 47 inch, 5
indi mess, is a fair fence, but not high enough to restrain very breachy stock.
Our four inch mesh contains one-fourth more wire for the Rame height
and is correspondingly better; hi inches or higher will be found reliable lor
stock, but we think 50 ami 54 inch is preferable. We make Od and 70 inch
lenee specially for barn lots, or wherever high fences are needed, and no?
cheaper fence can be used for that purpose.
In using thia uetting for front yard fence, a railing and base board, laira*
the place ol' braces at the ends of the fence and makes it more ornamental.

The SEIHIWICK GATES are made of wrought iron pipe and steel wire, and
defy all competition in neatness, lightness, strength and durability. These
are splendid gates for Yards, Lawns, Parka and Cemeteries, .".nd evervwbere>
where a good gate is wanted. These gates are all fitted with our adjustable
hinge that hllows ol the gafe being set high or low, and to open either way
or both, ways, with spring latch and either double or reversible catch aa per
order. All our gates are specially suited to self-opening attachments.
We av? often asked : How long will it last'- From all that is known of
wire and the kind of paint w? put on, we think it safe to say from 25 to ,?>5
years. t?nd we feel confident that it will bear the renewal of the posts sev
eral limes. Any kind of j osts may be used and are usually set 1? to 16i
feet apart, but may be eet any distauce not exceeding IX) ft. It is fastened
to wood posts with staples.
We sell a complete outfit for stretching, (consisting of stretching tackle
and cutting pliers) for $2.50. Complete instructions toset up fence sent
with invoice. Any man of ordinary intelligence can put up the fence. Av
erage cost of labor of putting up fenoe, including setting -jp posts, 10 cents
per LC? feet.
