ommnjiUdatlons Intded for this
AAet should be addressed to J. 0
8tibling, Pendleton, 1. 0.
Here are soie good rules to paste
up .in your books to be read out the
fitst thing at th' yegi.ming of the
business feature of your meetings:'
st. Are we Union men -
2nd. Do we know that to be good
Union, men we must submit to the
"'Vill of the majority?
3d. Havb wecome together for the
purpose of..comblining our strength
for the good of the fraternity as a
.yvhole, or have any of us assembled
for self aggrandisement of pecuniary
Interest of.individuals or cliques?
4th. Have we come together for
the purpose of hunting up good things
to talk of for our beiefit, or are we
hunting for more trouble by talking
ov.or the mean things that- others
5th. When you want a thing done
be sure to gdt very busy men' to do it
for you; never think of appointing
men to do important work for the
Union that are not now, nor never
were, worth a cuss for anything. . *
6th. If you are out looking for good
you will be sure to find somethi.ng
good, and if you are out looking for
bad, things you will find more of this
than you want very soon..
Local Farmers' Unions are some
thing like good crops, they thrive best
when planted on good soil in the coun
try and -where well cultivated.
One reason for this is that when lo
cal Unions meet in the towns there is
more or less business and other at
tractions that draw members away
from the meetings in town while there
is usually no other than Union .busi
ne$s that comes before local meetings
in the country.
No doubt you are getting sorter
fashed out on so much cotton talk and
need a change. Better get up a hog
and hominy talk at youir next local
meeting. We had -one in the Pendle
ton Farmers' Hall last Saturday and
some of the boys got rigllt hungry be
fore we got half through with the
sausage and liver pudditng subject.
Mr. B. Harris stated that he had
grown pork at less than three and a
half cents per pound, and Bro. Rich
ardson vouched for the fact -that he
knew -of a farmer that had raised
a large family off of the products- of
a'hog farm wihere the common citron,
grown in ~among the corn, were the
chiief or principal hog food used iii'
growing hog. As many know that
these common eitrons may be housed
and fed through the winter with bet
ter results than the common pumpkin
.and are many times more abundant
and a sure rop.
It was the general consensus of
io'among the farmers at this
1g-adhominy meeting that it-'cost
oo much to undertake to gr'ow hogs
on grain. Turnips, sorghum, clovers,
barley, rye, canteloupes, melons, veg
etables and bermuda pastures were
cow pea or saga bean and small grain
fields and sweet potato crops were all
used to advantage under different
IA circumstances for fattening the hogs
' in the fall. Hogs will gather cow peas
or soga ibeans very much cleaner and
' cheaper than little niggers will do it,
-and besides your hogs are always
ready for the job and will keep at it.
That Diversified 'Earming Talk.
- All this talk about diversified f-arm
ing~ is now getting rathle'r stale' talk to
most close observers. We note that
many otherwise elever farmers do 'a
good deal of talk awvay from home
along the line of diversified farming.
But they do niot write it out on their
farms in a way that he.tliat runs by
may read it. out on the ground of
ehse men's farms as plainly as it can
eb read in their papers and talk. This
thintg of all talk no w6rk t.o back it
ai-is too much like rot to go down a
act ical man's throat without
straining a little. I believe it was B.
\Harris that made' the suggestion at
our hog and hominy meeting that it
'.ould pay the owner of the f'arm best
.do the hiog and hominy and other
e'ified farming stunts and sell
~e farm supplies to his fall all
Iofi-gi'owig renters who will per
