Good Chance for the One-Horse
"What is there for a one-horse
farmer, if any?" asks a reader. It
all depends on the kind of man he
is. While having only one work
animal is a handicap, there are
worse. For instance, we'd rather
risk making a paying crop with one
mule on rich land than to try it on
poor land with a dozen mules. Peas,
beans and the clovers can be grown
as well by the one-horse farmer as
by the larger, and crop rotations
that will build up the land are just
as easily possible with the small
fellow. Get out of the one-horse
class as Boon as you can of course;
but the mere fact that you are a
one-horse farmer by no means shuts
the door of hope. One of the most
successful farmers we know, a man
rated at 830U,000, started thirty
years ago with a single gray mare
and an unlimited supply of spunk.
Yes, the one-horse farmer has a
chance and a good one.-Progressive

The Ready Pistol-and Liquor.
So dramatic was the scene ir
Richmond Superior Court Monday
when J. T. Thompson was senten
ced, that die "lesson" of it all will
assert itself for years and years.
Thompson had been put on trial
for murder. He had taken the life
of Marion Williams. The trial ju
ry had brought in a verdict of vol
untary manslaughter, with a mercy
recommendation. The court was
deliberating the eentence. Counsel
for the convicted man urged the
greatest leniency. Thompson's
brother had 3sked a short sentence.
The foreman of the trial jury added
a word in Thompson's behalf
Thompson's wife and four of his
children were present. The wife
begged that her husband, who had
always been good to her and her ba
bies, and who had consistently and
continuously toiled hard for her and
her children, be not taken away
from her. ( One little daughter, put
ting her arms about her father as
he stood before the court, made
mute, tearful appeal that her parent
be spared to her, for she seemed to
understand when her grief-torn mo
ther bad said: "Judge, he is all I
have; all to me and the children; I
have no sisters or brothers or par
ents. I am alone in the world. Be
as light as you can on him. Spare
him to me and the children all that
you can." It was a trying moment.
Tears were foi ced to the eyes of
every person in the room.
Just before these appeals, Judge
Hammond had. stressed the "les
son." That this man had taken the
life of a fellow man; that, the famil
ies of two hard-working men were
in the depth of grief; that a man
who had been a good citizen and a
good husband and a good father
J had been brought to the gate of the
penitentiary could be traced direct
ly to two things: Liquor and the
Thompson had been drinking. Ile
had carried his "gun" in his over
coat pocket-ready at hand. But
for the liquor and the gun there
would have been no homicide. There
would have been no verdict of man
slaughter. There would have been
no five-year sentence-which was
finally imposed; and the life, peace
and life happiness of two families
would not have been destroyed. '
No murder trial ever had in this
section has left an impression so
deep as that resulting from the
Thompson case. Men present dur
ibg the court investigation and who
'heard the comments from the bench
and who witnessed the agony of
mind of the men, women and chil
dren directly affected by the killiug,
can never forget it. Those who
have read the newspaper accounts
have discussed it with their neigh
bors. As men they looked upon the
court house di ama; as they discuss
ed the killinET; the heart-rending
court scene; the pitiful plea of the
wife; the weeping of the children;
the sorrow of the widow of the
slain man, two words stood out in
delibly before them-the words
mentioned by the judge: "Liquor"
and "Pistols."-Augusta Chronicle.
