PLEASED LARGE AUDIENCE.
The Pastoral Drama "Maud Muller"
Presented in the Opera House
A large audience was pleased by
the presentation of "Maud Muller" in
the opera house on Wednesday even
ing. The pretty pastoral draria was
well interpreted and the cast was
strong throughout. Miss Beulah
Thompson. wh': Lppeared in the title
role, was charming in her portrayal
of a character which has become fa
miliar in almost every household, and
she received the support which she
richly deserved. Miss Thompson was
strongest, perhaps, in her emotional
parts, but nowhere did she fall short
>f what was expected by an appre
-iative audience of one in her role.
Mr. Charles Mylott, as Reuben
Wayne. the judge: Mr. L. D. Blon

An Interesting Letter From The
Rev. D. P. Boyd-Farmers
Holding Their Cotton.
Editor Herald and News: This
leaes wife and I somewhat improv
ed having been in the hands of grip
for about two weeks-one not able
to wait on the other most of the
time. Our friends have been very kind.
in ministering to our necessities. Our
faithful physician. Dr. Shaw, has giv
en us close attention, so that now we
hope to be out and at our work soon.
Things are very quiet up here. Far
mers are determined in their purpose
to keep their cotton until somebody
wants it enough to pay 1o cents per
pound. The merchants and banks
seem to be in sympathy with them.
Why should they not be? Everything
in the way of food and raiment de
pends upon the farm, and yet it is
not to be denied that while all de
pend tupon the farm for something
to live upon the farmers have been
the worst oppressed class of beings
in the world. 'When the farmer has
body how muc he will have to pay
for it. When he has anything to sell
he asks how much they will pay for
it. This time, fortunately, the small
farmer sold his cotton for a fair price
as fast as he got it out, and made
sonic meat and a fair crop of corn,
and is in the best shape he has been
in since the war. The large iarmer
sold a good lot of his cotton early in
the fall for a fair price and he is
able to hold the balance till some
body wants it worse than he does:
at least, this is the case in this part
of Greenville county. There are great
cribs of corn in this county that have
not yet been opened and cotton
plenty to keep.
Let the men who make that which
the world lives on demand a fair
remuneration for their care and toil
and assert t'heir rights at least to
price their products. There are plenty
of farmers up here who say they are
going to reduce the acreage and hold
on to the present part of unsold crop.
When cotton brings 10 , cents the
men who have it will turn it loose
and then the merchants will sell their
goods. The farmer will be in a cheer
ful mood, because he will feel like he
is being rewarded for his toil.
