?I
Spartanburg people, irrespective

ty welcome to Rev. M. D. Jeffries,
D. I).; when he comes to Spartan
burg the first of October to become
pastor of the Southside Baptist
church. Dr. Jeffries has been the
very able pastor of the First Bap
tist church at Kdgefield for a nnm
ber of years and the people of that
city are loath to give him ip. Prior
to going to Edgefield he was presi
den t of CarsoiivXewman college in
Tennesspp.
Dr. Jeffries comes to a growing
church in the Southside church. He
will have great opportunities for
doing good work. He will be wel
comed to the City of Success."
An Appeal to Fanners.
To The Edgefield Advertiser:- I
am not going to write in the inter
est of any political faction, bat I
want to write in the interest of the
farmers, as I am trying to farra.
Brother farmer, I think it is our
duty to work and vote for mento
make our laws for us who have
worked on the farm, and are inter
ested in the farmers of our state
and country. Now, if we send mer
chants to our legislative halls we
may expect laws for them; if we
send doctors- we may expect laws
for their interest. So you see broth
er farmer, if you are called lo. conrt
as witness", we get 50 cents-per day.
I guess ihn', is all right as it will
not make us want to go, hut just
see what the doctor gets as a wit
ness in court. Some may say that
a doctor needs more. Now just stop
and ask yourself this question.
What is it?worth for us to leave oar
plows idle to be a witness in court?
If we send the lawyer we may ex
pect laws to suit his needs, and the
same may be said of the banker,
for it is natural that they should
make laws for their own interest.
- So we farmers must send some one
to make laws for our interest. What
we want are laws that will be equal
to all occupations of life, and not
detrimental to any. Let us vote for
men to make laws that are farmers;
both in our state and in Washing
ton, D. C. The poor, down-trodden
farmers need not expect lo get any
relief as long as they send some
corporation lawyer or any other
man that is not interested in our
walk of life. Il is not always the
case with the man that can mike
the most flowery speech that, is the
one that will make the best laws for
our land. What we need are lunrPM.
men that will stand by the farmer
and cannot be bought by a doctor,
lawyer or any one else. You know
that we have a large majority of
men of other professions in our leg
islative halls, especially in Wash
ington. I). C. Lot me impress this
fact upon your mind to vote for a
brother farmer to represent us m
the making of laws.

The Man Who Ev.
Practice the Plan c
Buying Direct F
Several years ago an enterprising
merchant-fanner in a small Eastern ;
Carolina town slipped away to Liver- :
pool and had a quiet conference with
the president of a large cotton man
ufacturing establishment. When the
merchant-farmer returned home he
exhibited to his fellow merchants and
farmers a contract, whereby he was
to purchase cotton on his local mar
bet, ship it to the nearest, compress
and then bill it direct to the European
manufacturer. It was the first time
In thc history of the cotton industry
that a European Manufacturer and a
local cotton buyer had been brought
together. It was the first attempt that
had ever been made to eliminate the
middle-men in the handling of the
world's greatest crop. In that contract
the European manufacturers and the
American producer had been brought
closer together than ever before in
the history of the cotton industry.
Able lawyers who passed upon the
provisions of the contract said that it
granted an equal measure of protec
tion to both buyer and poller. Finan
ciers who looked it over said it was
the beginning of a new and better
era in the handling of the cotton crop,
in that it brought the Southern cotton
field to the f.hreshhold ol' the European
spinning room. But the Fates so will
ed it that before the plan could be
put into practical operation death
stilled the. li.?nrt and hand cf this far
seeing merchant and farmer, and 'ha.'
contract which no doubt would have
meant so much to Southern cotton
planters f?came Inactive asset of
a litigated estate.
But the germ of the idea did not
die vi th this enterprising merchant
farmer: it found lodgment in thc fer
tile Itrn-ia ?f ..: you^A norton ??ianufae

establishment of a closer relationship
between tiie manufacturer and tba
farmer.
Mr. Hamer le a modest man and it
is extremely difficult to pet him to
i speak of any of his successes or
I achievements in life. It was with re
I luctanee that he consented to the use
of bis name in connection with this
article, but the only way the people
can judge of a man's fitness for pub
lic ofiice is by knowing what he hai
accomplished as a private citizen, and
it is nothing but fair to the people of
South Carolina and a matter of simpl?
justice to Mr. Hamer himself for
these facts to be given the widest
publicity.
Mr. Hamer was born on the farra
and is the son of a farmer. He is OM
of four sons, all of whom are promi
nent farmers of the Pee Dee country.
His father before him was a succe?
ful farmer, a wealthy man for bia
day and time, and couici have reared
his sons in ease and luxury, but being
a man of sound, practical judgment
he taught his boys the art of farming
in tiie hard school of experience. Alta?
graduating from the South Carolina
College Mr. Hamer went back to the
fr.rni where he combined Hs technl*
