Getting O?* of aHole.
The easiest way to get out of a hole
ia not to get in the hole.
Now, stop end i?gure awhile on thia
problem. Say you buy a good pair of
mnleBuow at $000 and make papers to
pay for them ? in cotton at 10 cents, ?
thin will take 10 bates to pay for thia
team without the feed- lt will take
tbreo moro baie?, at least? to pay for]
the feed for one year, to say nothing
about the bill for geari?ig, tools, f?rtil .
kera and ?abor io produce thia cotton
and g?3t it to the market.,
You can raise your own mules aud i
feed at Ieee than halt these prices.
We know:thia to bo true.
We hovea doleful tale to tell juofc
here about u green farmer who has n.
, wife and children at home depending
upon Iiis labor and judgment.
1 Thia yoong man had .a very good'
old mole that made, a fair crop thia
year, but the young man concluded
.that; ho wanted a young mule. So he
goes to the mule trader and makes the
exchange of bia mule for a young one,
promisiss. vida to boot? the trader !
rating tho old malo at $2& and the |
.youang mule at $200. A few days later
another farmer traded or bought tho
old mule that tho young man traded
for 88? for ?123/
Now, thia male trader is not tho man
to put all thia blame upon, for he is in
thia business for all the profit he can
get out of it. The trader sells many
mules that are starved, or die out from
other causes, and the men that do pay
at all must pay for the bad debts that
others make. Don't you see that no
zarmer can live to himself V Why is it
tbnt so many formera are always buy
ing evtsty thiner they use on time for
one year ahead? Were these farmers
jost boro ono year too soon? or do they
try every year to live two years in one?
Why not try just one year at paying as
you go, and it you can'fc pay don't go?
A Rawhide Cat?;
You need not think because you
hsvc downed the cotton speculators in
tilts ibo third round that ho will stay
NO. indend. it is a life awl death.-mr
wJtii ?OT?^ tuvoo feiidwa do hot know
how to dos hoy. other thing, for they
havo been at it dil their ? bao?nesa life
otad they are -:about A? hard to kill. Out
aa the ; cat wit h n in ? .Jiv?s&. Yon may
correct their ; bearish. articles; in tho
paipdr^ftoa?y^hil^ in a few dayNs 'they
will nre?k; out in Co hew place'with
another batch of mialeaditg and false
statements. -They aro a rawhide caao.
You may k^Ow that if ^yon put your
foo ton ono end of a, rawhide and uhder-^
take to hoi? st dsw?^ thu! th? otner
end will cock op; if you step on both
fends it will COCK up on the sides, and
it. you hold it down all. around it ' Will
conk up in tho middle, Mid if yon jump :
on it ia th? middle; with both feet it
will???k np all avouud. ?
If you waatf to hold a rawhide down
you mast stand allover it at One time
and keep y?ur feet oh it ali the, while.
But aa farmers are about aa tough a
problem as tho speculator, and them
fire mor? formera than speculators, we
can all get together and sit do\vn ali
^ver theser rawhide cotton speculators
aud ; keep. our : feet down on them all
over .hit once and hold them down as

\r* ?te perfectly /.willing for Our
Trw South Carolina. Farmers'Union.
Tho State Council of the Farmers1
Educational nod Co-oporativo Union j
of South Carolina, at tho nreetiug held
in Andereon 'Nov, 23rd, decided to
make known to the public at large tho
following malu objects of ?Us niU?ion
in our State:
First. To teach oar farmers how to
produce profitable crops.
Second. How best to market our
producta so aa to turn the profits of
our prodnoe into tho hands oz the pro
ducers, instead of allowing tho non
producers to reap these profita.
We believe that it will be to the mu
tual interest of the Farmers' Union
and tho press of the country for tho
Fanueraf Union to use and advocate
its cause and principles through all
the established newspapers of the
country without preference RU long ns
the present friendly and cordial rela
tions between the Farmers' Union and
the press of the State prevails.
We believe that the farinera of the
S tat o appreciate the fact that^the far
mers should have an Organization of
their own composed exclusively of far
We believe that no other occupation
that baa an organization Ot its own
can consistently object to farmers hav
ing au organization of its own/ com
posed entirely of farmers.
The Farmers Union propose to at
tend to ita own farming business, in
its own way without making any at
tempt at pulling down. 'Other legit!-,
mat? occupations* or business in or?
der to build up'our farming interest.
In order to fortify our position in
demanding profitable prices for our
money crop cotton, and inforcing the
same, the Far mere1Iv Union urges its
mern bera and all other farmers of the
cotton belt to raise all home supplies
On their farms that will grow there
. Our Farmers' Union discourages the
system of baying many supplies (that
could be grown on our Southern
farms) at high rates for the purpose'of
growing the ono crop-cotton, which in
variably causes our cotton to bo sold
at force sales to pay for supplies Ob?
fained at high rates.
Why there should hot be any friction
between their niemb?rsT *.
Because we have the same interest
at stake as to profitable prices to tho
producers of cotton!
. Because we should be liberal enough
i towards each other to permit each or^
gouisation to attain its objecte in its
own woy 1
? .Because we feel it a duty we owe
each other to stand together!
Because every interest of tho South
ia staked upon a profitable price to t ho
producer of our great staple crop cot
Because the Formera' Uni?n is eteict
ly af armers organisation ? -
* Bocadeo ail other interests have'
their separate and distinct'organis?t
tiona, and the cotton association ii nu
amalgamated, or coherent organiza
tion, where aj? ? interests in the o?teon
heit can como together in; grand con
ference for the welfare of our common
interest, which anchors around profit
able prices to the .'producers of Wot
ton! ? ' , - -
- Because we ali live here together
in 'the. southland, where cotton is
Because when foreign interosts com
bine tb reduce profite to the prod dcor
ot cotton, - and succeed in doing it,
every dollar thua forced ont' ortho
producers hands that goes to foreign
interests, ia j ust so many dollars taken
out of the South, which will sooner
or later bo felt in every, vein and
artery of our whole system of indus
tries and tredes, whose pulsations are
sent- forth from one heart which, ia
