OHIPS KEEPS A PROMISE.
Writes of the Crops and the Mer
chants Temptation to Extrava
Bachman- Chapel, Nov. 22.-I have
decided to verify a promise which 'I
made to a number of my friends. Last
year while rambling over the country
quite a number insisted.that I should
scatter a few more of my chips around
amopg the reading public. I told
them I would try to throw out a few
more when the war was ended. I have
written a few letters since, but they
have all ben of a sad nature. I am
not going to promise you that this
letter will be so full of news, but still
I hope that I will be able to say some
thing that will at least interest a few
of the many readers of The Herald
The principal part of the crop is
gathered, and there is no use to dis
-- guise the fact that this is another
short crop. Taking Newberry county
as a wlhole, the average farmer has
sold his cotton as lie gathered it itnd
realized a very faii price for what he
had, notwithstanding the crop is not
going to pay the debt, the merchant
and gnano dealers say. They also say
that tmre is too much money spent
for luxuries. We frankly admit this
to be a fact, but who is to blame but
the muveliants themselves. They are
the ones who are leading the people
into temptation' and there is no use
for them to blame any one else.
Here comes John. He saw Dan at
church last Sunday driving a very nice
horse or mule to a beautiful top bug
gy, dressed all up in style. John be
comes very much dissatisfie'd with his
napped up clothes aid muddy shoes,
lie begins to think about the old mule
at home, which is not fit for a decent
man to drive, so lie puts out to town
and it isn't long before lie thas a two
hun111dred dollari mule, ninlety dollar top
buggy and beautiful rifteen dollar
dress suit of clothes. Now lie is ready
for what. To make ten cents cotton?
Yes, this is what the merchants
tliink, or at least tih sis the way. He
acts like lie thinks, but what does the
aveap-e laborin- man make wh1en le
gets aI out fit of this kind, lie makes
a law suit.
This state of extravagance is not al
together confined to the negro. We
find white people are to blame to a
great extent themselves. It is a fact,
when you make credit. easy, put out
all those nice inducements, the temp
.tation becomes so great that the aver
age man cannot resist it.
Now, understand that I am not
preaching economy. -I am only talk
ing about the state of affairs as I
hear others talk, but. now is the time
to begiin to talk about these things.
The wvay to keep from getting burned
is to stay out of the fire, but some
folks may say, ''go ahead boys, cot
ton is hound to bring a good price
another fall. You may make a good
crpp and rise to the top' after all.''
If' you have to buy a mule and pay
for' it with cotton and the mule cost
you $200.00 and you get 10 cenits pci
pound for your cotton, which you pay
for him with, how mneh better off
are you than when your mule cost
$100.00 and you only got 5 cents for
*I believe ini the farmers union, or'
any other organization that tends to
r better the condition of thle farmer, so
cially, morally cor fiinancially, but the
7ver*y best organization cin earth for
the farmer is the one whPeh keeps him
out of debt. Wh.en the farmers has
plenty to eat, r'aised on his own farm,
owes nobody anything, lie is as well
organized as a man needs to b)e to
hold his cotton until the manufacturer
is willing to pay him his price for it,
S. but as long as lie owves it all before
lie gathers it, lie is a dlependant being,
it makes no differenge how much
money lie cain borrow.

Our supervisor', Mr. J. Monroe Wick

Cannons Ci'eek on the road leading
from Bachiman Chapel to St. Phmilip~s

I am very much interested in our
country homes. I see too many of our

soon going to be another problem to
Now, my dear boys, I know that it
is a very hard task to live on the
farm. I know that it is the boy who
has all the errands to do around tho
farm. You are the ones who have all
the wood to chop, the barns and cribs
to fill, the horses and cattle to feed;
you are the ones who follow the mules
and horses up and down the hot and
weary rows; you are the ones who
have to go to town for all the neces
sities needed about the home, it mat
ters not how hot or ho'w cold it may
be; and y,ol are t.ie ones wIho have
many other hardships to undergo,
which lare too tedious to mention. And
I know wheni you look all these things
in tIe face, it seems mighty hiard to
be a farmer boy, but let me speak a
word of encouragement to you, my
dear ebuntry boys, stick to your bush.
After all you are living the happiest
life that can be found on God's carth.
Yes, I say stay out of town, you are
shiunniing hundreds an(d thousands of
femptationls that. are leadin hun
dreds and thousands of young men
down to degredation and hell, who
have dirfted off to town.
I want you to know and understand

OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Justice for the South in Payment War
Special Cor. Herald and News.
Washington, Nov. 21.-Prospects
are bright for the passage, during the
approaching session. of Congress, of
the omnibus claims bill carrying large
amounts for the payment of war
claims in every State in the South.
The justice of these claims is not de

ed upon by tilie Court of Claims and I
the amount (Ie from tihe United
States adjudicated by that tribunal.
The fqljire to pass the bill at the last.
session was due to the efforts of the
Republican leadcws in Congress to
keep down the total of appropriations
as much as piossible for (ffect in the
C6ngressional camplaig~n. They piled
up extravagant appropriations for
other objects buit refused to authiorize
the p)aymenmt o01 the just debts of the
geivernmen t. The Southern men in
Congress will also make a determined
effort to secure thle passage, duinig ]
the approaching session, of the hill .
providing far thle refuniding of the
millions of dollars illegally collectedI
in the Southern States during the war
through the cotton tax. Thlis money
is in the Treasury but it can not be 1
restored to those from whom it wvas
wrongfully collected or their hiirs
without special authority from Coni
gress. The passage of this bill. wvill
be an act of tardy justice to the1
President Roosevelt is determined
to continue his efforts to secure a
further concentrationi of power in thme
Federal Executive at the expense of
Congress and the States. His
message to Congress at thme beginning
of the session will contain several r'e
commendations along tihi sline. 1His
proposition to have the Congress im
pose0 a tax on legacies and inherit
aneles is a dlirect propiosal to invade
the field of State taxation. There is
no question as to the power of Con
gress to impose an inheritance tax,
put therefore this form of taxation
has been regarded as one to lie re
soited only to meet the expenIses
of a war or some other emergency,
and there cani be no justification for
this eneropchment on the field of
State taxation in time of pearce when
the receipts of the Treasury are run
nling far ahead of even the extrava
gent Republican expenditures. An
other invasion of the rights of the
States is the proposition of the Presi
dent to sub)ject corporations doing at
interstate b)usiness to a 'larger inea
sure of Federal control with 'wide
discretionary powvers vested in adlmin
istrative officeials, thus taking from
the States a large part of their con
trol over the corporations chartered1
