sive Farmer, Active In
Kails of Legislature,
Brief Sketch of His
Acts as Public
(From The Union Times, March 13,
The irriter had the pleasure some
time ago of visiting the farm of
Hon. Lowndes Browning in Cross
Years ago, Mr. Browning realized
that the one crop, all cotton, theory
of farming was a delusion and
a snare, and began raising bin
own meat and corn. It has been
24 years since he has had to use any
cotton money to buy meat for his
plantation. Not that he has not
bought bacon all these years, but
each year he has sold more than
enough hogs, hams and lard to buy
all the meat needed on his plaoe.
He bas a very nice bunch of short
horn cattle and a fine Mock of Ram
baulliet sheep. In fact, he lives at
He is president of the County
Farmers' Union, and during his ad
ministration, this organization ha>
put on new life, and is proving
quite beneficial to its members in
the purchase of fertilizers, and oth
er farm supplies.
Mr. Browning is very much in
terested in the education of the ris
ing generation, and he takes great
pride in the consolidated school
that has been established at Sedal ia,
large:y throui h his efforts. Asan
incentive to agricultural develop
opment, he has given the use of
several acres of land adjoining the
school lot, on which the school
board will have au experimental
farm for three years, profits to he
used for the school.
He has served several terras in
the house of representatives, during
the sessipn of 1911-12 being chair
man ot the Ways and Means com
mittee, and the two appropriation
bills introduced by that committee
were only amended by the house to
the amount of $83.75. This is a
record that has never been equaled
by the Ways and Mean* committee
of any other term. The senate
made few changes, and the vetoes
of the governor were always opposed
by a majority of the house, in most
instances, by the necessary two

000,000 00, one of the largest finan
cial measures ev?r handled by the
State, the house of representative?
passed it without a dissenting voice,
even without an aye and nay vote.
When it was vetoed by the gover
nor, it was passed over his veto in
the house by a vote of 70 to JO,
and an equally large majority in
the senate. This act, if pl iced in
operation, should save the taxpay
ers of the State around SlOU.U?U
per year for twenty years.

Mr. Browning will be in the cam
paign this summer as a carA?date
for governor, and of the numerous
candidates for this position already
announced, he is the only one who,
so far, has dared to outline a plat
form of constructive legislation for
the future. He has done this be
cause he is very anxious for the
people to have ample time to study
and digest the changes he proposes.
In other words, he does not want
this high position because he is a
"good fellow," or a congenial com
panion, but because the legislation
which he advocates would be of
great benefit to the people of our
State. Therefore he wants the peo
ple to be informed, and have ample
dime to digest these matters, so that
they can vote intelligently at the

He "'s in favor of a thorough re

?hall become the duty of the State,
and uot of the varions counties, to
educate the children of the State.
It is contrary to all public policy,
that uegro children in one county
shall receive more per capita for
their education than white childreu
of another county, as is now the
ease. All are the children of the
State of South Carolina, and not of
any specific county; therefore, it
is tiie duly of the Si ute to see that
