notice by letter (returning a paper doues
not answer the law) when n'subscriber
does not take his papJer out of the office,
and state the reasons for not being
taken; any neglect to do so makes the
postmaster responsible to the publishers
for the payiment.
2. Any person who takes a paper'
fro6m the postofiee, whether directed to
his name or another, or whether lie
has subscribed or not, is responsible for
3. If any person has ordered his pa
per discontinued, he nust pay afl
arrearages, or the pi.blisher may con

and collect the whole amount, whether
it be taken from the offie or not.
There can he no legal discontiaum;ne
until the payiaent is made.
4. If the,.subscriber orders his paper
stoppled at a certain time, and the pub
lisher continues to send it, the subscri
ber is bound to pay for it, if he takes it
out of the Post Qfiiee. The law p)ro
eeeds up)on trhe ground that a man must

What Everybody Wants.
There arcecertain things that are al

done without either, consequently the

his wife wants them. Some people
need them oftener thian others, and yet
occasionally the phenomenon presents
itself of at man or woman who feels the
want hut once im a life time, and( once
supplied have need for no more. Trhcee

Fu- report of the retiring Secretary, sub
i!t St meeting, was, n 11-.0tiun, or
T W.e M. made verba!l report .s to last
:monal meeting of State Grange, which
shiowed a marked and encouraging increase
i 0: pro.eperity of the o'der-that there is
mllOre substantial evidence of ihe ,eriaiency
of tie cau.e tihian there has evvr been before
exhibited among Patrons throughout the
Bro. II. D. Boozer also made encouraging
report and urged unity as the proper course
to reap ;iw advantaerCs proniied by the
Order, instancing among others, the I ac. of
a Pomona Master who had authority to pur
ebase 1.000 tons of fertilizers and who made
suca :i arrangement as saved a large amount
io the meinberohip of Iis Pomona Grange
Bros. S. A. Hunter and A. J. Kilgore also
made encouraging reports. The general tenor
of these reports ought and does inspire I
newed zcal to work fi.r linal success.
Bro. F. M. Se:zler, W. S. elect, beinggpres
cutr, he wa4 duiy installed into that office.
t being in order, the subject turdiscussicu,
viz: "Does it pay to use commercial fertili
zers?" was taken up and the following
brediren discussed the subject in response to
request or call of V. M.: Bto. II. D. Boozer
being called upon to open the discussion, re
sponded-Th inks it pays, in fact that it is
indispensable; that from 60 to 80 pounds per
acre pays better than twice that amount; lad
experimented some, and last season made
more cotton on tLe sumekind of land with
al)Put 6a pou'nds than with about double that
uunber of poruds.
Bro. S. A. Hunter thinks it pays if judi
ciously used, but couidn't say what per cent;
don't think that it has paid generally in this
County for various reasons, improper prepa
ration bein. the greatest cause.
Bro. D. B. Kinard-had but little expe
rience, but don't thik that it pa',; at uy
pmiie; th; gonlntry is poorer nowtlian when it
bcgan to use them; 'thinks it injures the soil;
acting as a powerful exhilarating stimulaut,
whi- h1, after ihe effects have passed, leaves
the soil depressed and poorer ithan beforc
as whiskey does upon men-thinks fertilizeis
tic greatest humbug ever inflicted upon this
counti y-except, perhaps, life insurance.
Bro. A. J. Kilgore-t1iinks it ;ery doubt
ful as to w vt i pays or not; is confident
it increases the crop very materially, but at
tie sian time regards the increase as of no
great benerit, for the greater the crop the
:mailer the price received; thinks it ion't
pay at present price; do . thini tire t.an
be ,1uv ini; z.ic.4sion rdched'until
the cozt vi, ri'aiig '6otton be determined und
ascertain the cost cottou canl be raised at by
the different processes.
Bro. Jacob Crouch-don't think that it
pays at present prices; don't expect to use
any this year; believes that more home zpa'o
nanure and less con,:erziai should be used.
-ro. .i. i-.loyd-c0nrs with Bro. D. B.
Kinard; thinks the country would have been
better off if it h-ad never used any.
Beo. James Speers--thinks there is some
benefit and some loss; thiat it woald be bet
ter 19 use mnoie conpost than we do, more
lot manure; that we ought to do ais before the
war and make our own fertilizers; don't
think there is much pay in commercial ma
Bro. Frank Moon-bas no late experience,
b)ut is confident it pays upon well prepared
hand, that it pays better in large quantities
than in small; don't think that the r'aggres
of farmers is attribtrable ta guan6~ so~ much
as to poor farming; la confident that the
present system of farmin;g don't pay.
A t this point the Grange took recess for
After recess the Grange resumed the dis:
Bro. W. W. Waidrop-tiuks it very doubt
fai'as to wli ther it pays, especialy at pres.
ent prices; hats (experimented some, and
some seasons paid -v eli and others nothing.
Bro. J. S. Floyd-thinuks it very doubtfal:
that it don't pay at present r'ic.as, thinks
that the incretase in exops of- its& use from 3
millions to'5 millions of bales; is of no pecu
niary advantage to producers, and that if less
cotton wvas raised the price would be corres
pondingly greater; thinks it impxoves land
* -antse it furnishes plant food, :nd thereby
reiieves the soil to that extent.
Bro. 31. Werts-has not used any for seve
ral years; thinks compost much superior, and
is now using that altogether; thinks itdoubt
ful if commtercial manures pay at any price,
and confident they don't paz at present
prices- gnds b,yt little trourfe in taking
enough gtabjle and lot manute to prepare
sufficient compost for the use of his farm and
thinks now, since there is nothing much to do
in the winter, that every farmer ought to
make his own fertilizers.
Bro. F. M. Settler-think it pays when
properly used ;'ie'es with Bro. J. S. Floyd
in the opinion that it improves the land, and
that if the farmers would use judgment in
its use, that it wvould pay a fair profit, if the
pmice were not too high.
B3ro. R. T1. 0. Hunter-thinks its use indis
pensable on his lands andi ga 4hI soi)5 where
cotton ot:ens hadly; that it pushes up the
crop and'inatures it much earlier and pays
for itself with him in that way, but don't
think it has ever paid g'nerally in this coun
~Bro. Asa P. Davis-has used a~ gr8at deal
and never realized any p7erceptible profit;
dcn't think it' paZys, but can't say certainly,
having never calculated very carefully.
Uro. B. It. Mangum-don't think it pays
notwithstanding the increase of tha~ trop;
thitnks it's laziness t.hat gauses it's so general
use. cotupled with the unreliable labor of' the
country: that ha-and his 'wife 'both farmed
in the'stime field one year, and i,s used
guano and she didn't(because he would not
pay for it) and, although their cotton was
side hy side, lie could see very little differ
ence, that her's made more, if anything,
than his; had said every winter that tie
would use no guano the following year, but
had invariably gon bg on ids'determina
tion t-nd supaposed thlat he would do so again.
isro. Whitman-don't think it pays gene
rally, thocugh it pays to use it on some
lands; thinks the raw bone better for his
lands than the ammoniated; belie'eg tt
if it could be bought cheap en.a i irold
pay genera!!y jK JilhCiously used.
1tro. J. F:7filgore-don't know whether it
pays or not; believes compost to be better;
didn't use much last year and don't expect
to use any this year; subrentred some lands
itn the same field to 2 negroes. eag albout i.t
acres, otne used "ttage; anu pianted the whole
in acttoa, tite other planted about 12 acres in
cotou and used no guano, but instead used
dry pine straw, putting it in the drill, and
nede more cotton off his 12 acres than the
oilier did off' 15-but he wgrk.ed j,; sVIme
better; don't ihgi it ;Gill pay at present
WV. M. John S. Hair-tinks it doubtful
whether it pays gener-a!!y or not; was sur
prised to hear omily the culture of CGtton'
spokeni of in connectica witu the use of
commercia! fertilizer's; thinks'-it pays less
untder cotton than any other crop; believes
that'if Sounhermn farmers would plant more
cereals, atnd sow nmre of th;e grasses and~
use guanmo under those crops that'thme profits
woulId be far greater thani that yielded ijy
cotton: lie ene year used 57 toris commaer
ciatl fertiliacers ahd 10 teas Foruvian Guano
tIe c:ommoercial being of' different varieties
couldn't see mucht difference, and if any, the
cheapest grade he used yielded him the
geatest return; it didn't pay that year:
thinks compost better for cottorn.
Bro 11. D). Boozer-tinms guano pay-s un
der' c-ottotn gad under no:hing'else.
Mfter- this' ver iersLing diseassioni, ti;e

Gringe, No. 4, ign meeting assettulod, that we
