''God made the^ou?tryT?"^
man made the town.-What .
wonder, then? that health and I
virtue should most abound, and I
leaat be threatened in the fields S
and groves.-COWPER. J
By uuiting, the farmers stand;
by-dividing, they fall.
Dispatches state that New York
is threatened with a hhortage of
milk. One naturally infers that
the water supply is also very low
A Savannah lady has sued the
street car company for $500 be
cause of alleged damage to her
d^ress-So valuable a garment was
evidently made of cottou goods.
The organized farmers are de-1
manding fifteen cents for cotton,
but the spinners and exporters
say: "We will not pay it." Who
will win in the fight that is on?
The southern cotton grower who
complains of the prevailing high
price of cotton goods makes about
as ridiculous a spectacle of "him
self as did the little boy who ate
his cake and theu cried because
he didn't have it. One cannot
reasonably expect to sell raw cot
ton at a high price and then buy
cotton goods at a low price.
A prominent conductor told the
writer a few days ago fhat white
people generally give much more
trouble on passenger trains than
colored people, and it is his opin
ion that the Texas law making it
a misdemeanor to drink liquor on
passenger trains is a good one.
He believes, however, that it
. Z ought to go a step further and
prohibit the boarding of a train
by a man who is drunk. Ladies
are at times greatly embarrassed
on trains by men who are under
the influence of liquor.
Hasty Ginning Entails Loss.
Farmers -stand in their own
light by rushing cotton from the
fields to the gin. In the first!
place, the quality of the staple is j
injured by ginning cotton while
it is green, thus entailing a loss
in grading. In the second place,
there is a loss in' weight from
hasty ginni ng, actual experiment I
having conclusively proven that
lint gains in weight by remaining
for a time on th? seed. In the j
third place, as soon as cotton is j
. ginned, whether sold or not, it '
then comes "within the ...r^chr oil
be speculaiei'srwho uss'it to swell
. . . - . . .or" reportsV and estimates.
Speculators would be -to a great
extent disarmed if cotton that is
held wero held on the seed, as was
the custom many years sgo when
horse and mule-power gins were
Japs a Superior People.
The Japanese are ' in many
respects a very superior people.
In Texas there is a large Japanese
colony engaged in the cultivation
of rico on a large scale. Besides
being honest in their dealings
progressive in their methods, in
dustrious and law-abiding, they
are Bftid to stay at home and mind
their own business. Americans are
disposed to look askance at the
Japs, yet in many things their ex
ample could be followed with
profit, particularly their staying
at home and miuding their own
business. The Japanese are said
to be a very loyal people. They
respect the laws bf this country
but never lose sight of their aile
giance to "their own, their native
land." Their national flag is
mounted upon their thrashing
machines and on prominent
places on their farm.
Will They Stand Together?
If there ever was a time that the
growers of cotton should stand
together, that time is right r.ow.
Two powerful organizations that
exist for the protection and pro
motion of the agricultural inter
ests of the south, the Cotton Grow
ers' Association and the Farmers'
Union, have said that farmers
should not sell their cotton for
I ?8B than 15 cents. This price, in
view of all the circumstances,, is
not unreasonable. Now, will far
mers stand together and demand
15 cents per pound? -
The supply of raw cotton is very
limited, the warehouses of many
mille being practically empty.
The mills are running on full time
and st^ll find it difficult o supply
the demand for cloth. The man
ufactured goods find ready sale at
almost fabulous prices.
Never before have conditions
been so favorable for the farmers,
particularly in the matter of cou
rsing the price of cotton. Will
hey seize the opportunity or al
w it to slip from them?
M?. Solid C. Horgan Again Tells
Oar Headers of his Travels in..
Dear Advertiser :- In mylast
letter, telling of the things ? saw
in Limestone county, I did not
mention tho large pecan trees
from thren to lour feet through
loaded with nuts. These were
growiog.on-Navasota river. Heft
Limestone county, August 23rd,
ran up to Corsieana in . Navarro
county, then to Hill county to see
two of my boyhood friends, W. J.
and J. P. Rochelle. Their mother
was a Jennings, sister of Dre. W.
D. and J. H. Jennings. W. J.
Rochelle has one of the best black
land farms that I have 'seen, with
a fine stream of cool water run

From here I went up to Waxa
hachie in Ellis county to visit
Rev. H. M. Garnett, 6ou of Mr. J.
J. Garnett, of Parksville , S. C.
Rev. Mr. Garnett is county mis-^
8ionary of Ellis county and is
quites capable man. He is en
trusted with a great amount of
responsible work. It was my
pleasure to travel with Jiim
through the country and hear him
preach three times, and he did it
well. He seems to be the man for
the place he is filling. It was my
pleasure to be in his bom? in
Waxahachie and meet his excel
lent wife who is a daughter of Dr.
Dodson who is pastor of the first
Baptist church of Guthrie, Okla
homa. The doctor and wife were
visiting their daughter and it was
a treat to be with so genial and
From this point I went up to
Ft. Worth to see the immense
stock yards with thousands of cat
tie in them, and then go in the
great packeries and soe from the
killing and cleaning of the ani
mals to packing the meat in cane.
It ?B just wonderful to see bow fast
it can be done from start to finish
and uotbmg lost. It is certainly a
great sight to see the thousands of
dressed carcasses hanging in the
large building. It made me buu
gry to look at it. The meat was
bandied so nice and looked so very
clean. Armour and Swift both have
packeries here but I had time only
to go through Swift's and that was
enough for me. Ft. Worth is al
ready a large city and is growing
rapidly. I left this city at 4 in the
evening and went west through
parts of Johnson, Hood, Erath
counties. For great distances on
this road there is but little land
in cultivation, most of it being
in large ranches on which are
grazed herds of cattle, and mules
and horses on some. They looked
sere and yellow as it is still dry
here. At Dublin I switohed off and
went up into Comanche county to
see a cousin> A, M. Barker, broth
er to Edwin Barker of Curry.town,
S. C~ He liveg irv a sand 7- belt; thaJ[
JppJk8--v?-ry '.much, like the land
?bput Trenton ; no rain here but
cotton looks green. From this
point I started west again and
have gone through Brown, Cole
man and Runnells counties. The
country through which I have
passed- is mostly prairie, but in
many places there are mountains
to be seen, which makes the scene
beautiful now. I think it would be
grand when clothed in green, but
everything is parched and dry. I
am now in the northern part of
Runnells county. It is a vast
prairie south-west and south-east,
with mountains in sight, east and
west. All the land here for miles
and miles is in crops of cotton and
maize. . They raise corn in this
section. It is very dry here and
everywhere else that I have been
in Texas, yet I have found water
for man and beast, and the crops
seem to be holding on very well
but will be short.
I am now at my sister's Mrs. T.
E. NixOD, I had not seen her for
46 years. She is the widow of John
Nixon who came to Texas many
years ago. Sister is a real Texan,
and has no desire to return to
South Carolina. I will leave here
for San Antonia on the 4th and
will let you hear from me lhere.
Since-writing the above I have
been down in the storm cellar and
looked in the well and find that
the black soil is underlaid with a

Strong and ve^reffpctive speeches
were made by Rev. P. B. Laub am,

following resolution was. intro
duced by Dr. Burts and was

The Christien women of the

marvelously successful during the

active organizations among the
adies aud young people that con

by the denomination.

The last day of the association
was cevoted to the centennial
celebration. Atter appropriate de
votional exercises Col. R. B. Wat
son aj oso and extended hearty
Christian greetings from Edge
field's daughter, the Ridge asso
ciation. Col. Watsou said that
this session of the Edgefield as
sociation was unquestionably the
best that he had ever attendnd.
A very valuable paper on the
early history and traditions of
the association was read by Dr.
C. E. Burts. Through Mr. G. W.
Medluck, he procured a complete
file of old minutes reaching as far
back as 1818, md from these be
obtaiued very valuable data and
information.. Horn's Creek is the
oldest church in this part of the
state but the first associational
meeting was held at Hardy's
church in 1807. This ohurch has
the distinction of having the old
est records of any church in this
A most excellent paper prepared
by Prof. Cook of .Forman
University on the "Relation of
this association to the rise of Bap
tist Education" was read by Dr.
A. J. S. Thomas editor of the
Baptist Courier. This, like the
paper of Dr. Burts, contained
much hitherto unwritten history
that is of . great value and it
should be published so as to be
Dr. T. M. Bailey, the oldest Jiv
ing minister who has been con
nected with the Edgefield asso
ciation, spoke of his early recol
lections of the association. He
came to this county in 1856 and
the first association that he at
tended was at Red Oak Grove in
1857. At that time the Edgefield
association extended from Ham
burg to Greenwood. Dr. Bailey
spoke of the'old pioneer ministers,
giving a brief but interesting ac
count of the Hie and works of
Next came Dr. L. R. Gwaltney
who spoke on "The association as
I have known it for fifty years."
He cann to Edgefield in August
1858 to serve the Baptist church
as pastor and the first session of
the association that he attend'd
was at Stevens Creek in Septem
ber of the same year. As those
who preceded Dr. Gwaltney spoke
at length of the ministers who
labored in the association iu the
past, he spoke chiefly of the lay
men and laywomen. He mentioned
scores of names of Godly men and
women who lived in the town and
county at the time he came. Of
the members of the church at the
time he accepted the Edgefield
pastorate in 1858, only two are
now living, Mr. R. H. Mims, and
Mr. James Sullivan, of Rome, Ga.
In many senses this was a sad
service but in every sense a very
sweet service. As Dr. Gwaltney
spoke of his ministry in Edgefield
aud of his tender love for those
who lie beneath the sod in the
village cemetery and his dovotioo
to their children there were many
tear he-dimmed eyes iu the con
gregation. He also paid his life
long friend, Rev. J. P. Mealing, a
very beautiful tribute.
Rev. J.- P. Mealing was next
called upon. For nearly fifty
years be has beena faithful labor
?r io thc Lord's vineyard, laboring
ill the while among the people of
Edgefield county. During these
fears, he has held the confidence
ijid affection of those who have
toowi' him hest. And, as Dr.;
