The chain gang investigation is
like many other things-it only
shows up the worngs that have been
perpetrated and does not find a way
to right those wrongs. I predict
that this investigation will turn out
iust abou- like the sewerage inves
tigation; everything will he smooth
ed and polished over. Surely the
courts will get ashamed of th.em
selves after awhile. I claim that
the chain gang system is now one
of the biggest impositions on the
county. If the county continues to
sell negroes. I say lef's do away
with the gang at once. What's the
use to convict a negro of crime
when there's a white man ready to
buy him before the shackles are put
I never before knew such a scar
citv of hands throughout the coun
try. ''he fact is the white people
have made fools of what few ne
groes are left. They are continual
lv on a strike to see how much they
can get for their labor. One came
to me to hire last week. or at least
pretended he wanted to hire, and
I never did find out everything he
did want. HFle said that-he was look
ing around for convenience. I
confessed thac I was poor and
couldn't furnish quite all that he
would need and he passed on to
the next man. There has been a
g.reat deal of talk in favor of im
migration. but what's the use to
advocate anything of this kind
when we've got enough contrari
.ness in the country to contend with
now The kind of people that we
can get to come here are the kind
that other people don't want.
Everybody that knows anything at
all knows that there is always a de
mand for good material in the
country where it is. I suppose that
this great immigration fever orig
inated in the towns and I hope that
when the towvns bring these people
here they will keep them in the
towns', where they have a police
force to make them behave. It
.would be a good idea this summer
for those fellowvs who are wanting
to go down to make lawvs for us.
and telling us what they are going
to do, to tell us if they are in favor
of a repeal, of the immigration

I am glad to say that the high
price of cotton has not caused the
farmers. of this section to neglect
the planting of corn. About the
usual amount of corn will be plant

Thle Women Carry Their Half of The Load.
The Japanese woman is not al
lowved to hold property, but she is
admitted to full equality with men
when any hard work is to be done.
Wherever you go, in cities, vil
lages, or farming communities, you
find the wife and mother working
side by side with the husband and
sons, plowing, planting, and reap
ing, and at sunset taking home a
portion of the harvest in a big bas
ket on her back. Whenever you
see a man between a pair of tiny
haft tuggin to haul a heav
ily loaded cart up hill. there always
is a woman pushing from behind.
and she is bare-headed. bare-footed
-except for a pair of stray sandals
-and wearing a pair of blne cotton
