Do You Believe that Providence Takes
Care of All Fools and Children.
The Easlev Progress 6aya that provi
dence takes care ot all tools and ckil
d? r?. Atter readiug an editorial in
Jast week's Progress about tho Far
iner' TTniou we are rorced to believe
that here must be something in this
state cent, or perhaps the editor of
the paper might have been lost by
Now, there is another class oC our
people that we would be glad for the
editor of the Progress to tell us about.
They are a class of cotton growers that
thought while others were cutting
acreage that it was a good time for
them to "cut the buck" and plant more
cotton. These fire said not to be either
fools or children. Will "General Green"
or the devil take care of tnese farmers
during this rainy weather?
How do you feel about this? Have
you joined any of the farmers' organi
zations to try to do something for your
self and neighbors? If you have not
you ought not to say one word abont
not beim: able to name your own
prices for your products or kicking
against the cotton gamblers. On the
other hand, if you have joined in with
your neighbors and tried your best to
do something for farmers and did not
gain all your points yon ought to feel
good when you know that you tried
your best to do something.
Farmers' Union Request Granted.
By a resolution of the Farmers'
Union of Anderson County Clemson
College was asked to secure M. J. A.
Everett, of Indianapolis, Indiana, as
one of the speakers at the coming
State Farmers Institute to be held ut
Clemson College the Oth to 14th of
Mr. Everett, as many farmers kno > ,
is the champion advocate of the popu
lar move tor fa. ein to make and
maintain profitable prices for farm
products, and it is claimed by the
wheat growers of the West that they
have through an organized effort raised
the price of their wheat from 65 cents
to 81.00 per bushel, and that these
prices have been maintained for sev
eral years by concert of action by the
growers. With the view of learning
something from the experience of the
wheat growers, the cotton growers of
South Carolina should turn but at this
Slate Institute and hear Mr. Everett
and have a good social and educational
Institute along on the business side of
Remember this, that ic matters not
how cheap you can grow cotton, if the
speculator continues to make prices
for you regardless of coat of produc
tion, the more cotton you grow the
poorer you will get.
Are you not glad that y?u arc .t far
mer? If you are not just read vrhiit the
Bankers' Association had to sa> about
the farmers. It will do you good.to
read and study all they bad to say.
All the bankers and cotton mill men
at this meeting at Anderson, who had
anything to say about farmers, said
that they were the farmers7 friends.
Well, now, it begins to look like every
body is a friend to the farmer, and that
the farmer has no enemies. in other
pursuits. W? want to know what all
this Farmers' Union and Cotton Grow
ers Association' movement mean, any
way? Does all this uprising among
farmers mean that1 about the worst
enemy the farmers have is some of tho
farmers themselves? If you believe
all that is said by other occupations,
this is about the shape of the situation,
and there is ecme trnth in this, for it is
a well known fact tent there are some
men in all occupations that are the
worst enemies to themselves. If far
mers were weak.in numbers and power
and not able to proteot their own in
terest he could not be accused of being
his worst enemy, but as things are,
the farmer is the most powerful crafts
mon on earth if tbey would only organ
nize. Well, then, if faimers do not get
their rights and full benefit of all their
labor it is absolutely all the farmers'
own fault. '
The cotton warehouse question is
now being solved in a very natural and
familiar way. It now looks more like
it was to be old-fashioned hay stacks
aronnd the edges of the fields.
'? Your neighbor says the only reason
why hu has more grass in his cotton
than you have is because he has more
land than you have; that's all.
? It is said that the man that does
not plant much, usually does not make
much; but the rainy season of this
year seems to be revolutionizing things
in a way that makes it appear .more
like the man that has planted least
will mvke most. %\ 'M
? Many of our smartest men : will
tell you that most any common man
with good muscle who knows how to
ose it, can-mike lots of money these
days, but it takes the man with brains
ana business qualifications to keep
the profits of his labor. We already
know top much abont making cotton
and too little about how to'- sell
our cotton to our own benefit,
instead of allowing the nonpro
duceri to grow rich off of our labor
while wo tho producers grow poor.
?Farmers, organize and do liko oth
ers, pot your selling, business into the
hands ot your best business men and
you will be safe. -
