How to Keep the Boy on The Farm.
What does the boy go after when he
leaves the farm? If wo know what
takes the boy away from the farm, and
we can bring that thing to the boy in
stead of allowing the boy to go after
the th inj? then the problem is solved at
once. But it is often the case that it
is not possible to bring to the farm
that which the boy is after. One of
these are that some boys have a rov
ing disposition, to see something of
the world, and when thia is the case
tho sooner this boy can get all he
wantBinthat line the better it will be
for him. This kind of disposition is
born in some boys, and they cannot
help it. We may as well put it down
for sure that about eight out of every
ten boys that leave the farm leave
there looking for the dollar, or some
thing that the dollar could bring to
the farm, and just here that there are
few things that the dollar cannot bring
to the farm. Now, as we all know,
money will not buy religion, bnt most
any missionary lecturer will tell you
that money is a powerful factor in
sending the gospel to the foreign
heathen, and also a wonderful aid in
christianizing our home heathens;
although we are willing to admit
that one does not need to be rich to
accomplish great things. Ideas, with
inspiration in them, cannot be bought
with money: but money will too often
bring the beautiful society damsel
from the town to* the rural home. It
will also bring the luxuries of the town
to the country, but it cannot bring the
pleasures and luxuries of rural life to
the city. Tho trend of the times are
that the rural mail, the rural telephone
and the rural trolley will soon anni
hilate space, and money will bring all
theso to the farm, but all the money in
the city cannot bring the rural home to
the city. The rural trolley will ere
long cover over the moat prosperous
sections of our rural districts, and thus
bring out to the farm all the gaiety
and attractivo glee clubs, and sweet
Binarere of the town to enjoy an even

but money will never bring to the

have woke up to find that everybody
that handles cotton has got rich except
the man that does the most work, and
that is the grower. We have' just
found out that we knew too much
about making cotton and too little
about how to sell cotton at a profit
The farmer has organized to keep
the wealth on the farm that he pro
duces, and if he succeeds in doing thia
he need not bother about the boys
leaving the farm any more. When
ever the farmer learns how to retain
upon the farm the money that he pro

Anderson Wednesday afternoon by
Sheriff Dorsett of Davidson county,
who came to deliver him to Sheriff

from the Governor's oflioe, Sheriff
Green declined to receive Leonard on

of this State and that the South Caro

him. The North Carolina authorities
took tho position that Leonard was
not a citizen of their State and accord

Hon ca Path People Talked of Lynch
A special dispatch to the Greenville
News nnder date of Sunday gives the
following interesting account of the
terrorizing of the? town of Hones Path
by a notorious character: "John Mc
Gaha, a noted local desperado, filled
up on cheap liquor this afternoon and
about 9 o'clock tonight returned to
town and drove through the streets
firing right and left with his ever-ready
pistol. He did this for at least half
an hour and the citizens, led hy C. E.
Harper and J. C. Milford, lined up on
the sidewalks and returned the fire.
One hundred shots were fired, but
owing to poor marksmanship no one
was hurt. McGahawho Ima killed two
men in the past is now safely lodged
in the station house while the incensed
public is talking of lynching. Cooler
heads are advising that the law take
its coarse, however, and there is not
much apprehension of mob law."
