H. CHAPPELL ON THE NEGRO
Says He Descended From Cain-The
Way to Control Him-If Labor
Is Scarce Sow Grain.
Mr. Editor: I have often heard
that an idle mind is the devil's work
shop, and +his lonely evening while
"Old Miss," (as I call her) and all
the children are away and I alone left
to look after the things at home, my
mind reflected back to a conversation
between a very prominent citizen of
Newberry and myself as to the ori
gin of the negro, and I contended
that when Cain killed his brother,
Abel, and God put a curse on him
and said that he should be a fugitive
and a viTabond on the earth, then
Cai:i fled and went over into the land
of Nod on the east of Eden and Cain
knew his wife-mind you, there were
no other people on the earth at the
time but Adam ind Eve and Cain and
Abel-yet Cain, according to the
Good Book, went over in the land of
Nod and knew his wife, which, aa
eordirg to my interpretation, to use
a negro' expression, meant that
Cain "took up with her."
Now the question is, who was one,
and I claim that she was nothing
more or less than a monkey, and the
roes of Oain and the monkey you
get the negro. Now let's see if we
can find any proof. None but cir
eumstantial, which in law is good
-proof if there are no missing links in
the chain. Well, we find Lameeh,
one of their descendants, had two
wives. Do not all negroes have two
wivesI Well, the Good Book says
that Cain and his descendants should
be fugitives and vagabonds. Are
there not a large per cent of the ne
groes fugitives and vagabonds?
But enough of Cain. My object in
this article is to try as best Iean to
show some of the evils of this day C(
concerning the negroes, and they
alone are bad enough, but, Mr. Edi
tor, they- are the easiest people con
trolled on the face of this earth. If
some low down scoundrel of a white
skin would let him alone and keep
him in his class. Nine times out of
ten when your negroes become dissat
isfied and want to leave you, there is
some white scoundrel, who has c r
around your field and told him __t
you were not treating him right and
'that he would give him more than you
were giving him and let him have a
mule on Sunday to drive to church.
The next important point th'at I1
"wish to underscore is that you cannot
treat a negro like you would a white .
man, for he will not stand it. He
is intended by God himself as a com
mon laborer, and when you try toI
treat him white, right then you spoil
him, and he will consider himself as
good as you are and you can no long
er control him. A white man is just
'what he makes out of himself, and a
negro is just what you make him. .
Soud1i Caroina is the garaen spot ur
of the world, and Newberry county se
is the garden spot of South Carolina
and from one to three miles west of n
Newberry is the garden spot of New
berry county. *Not that we have the l'
very best land, or raise the very bestt
crops, but listen to these words, far- re
mers. Dick Neel nor George Hill nor ac
im Henderson do not try to dissatis-di
vmy hands. They would, not hire ca
e of them under any circumstances st~
I wanted him, and God knows my eu
rt, and I know that under no cir- so
mnstanees would I try to hire any hii
oftheirs, but would get out of my bed as
at midnight to go and help one of hi
them put his negro in his class, but fa
we do not even need that. We have -
no trouble with them, but. you do not'to]
hear any negro call us Dick or George pa
or Jim or John. We do not allow ed
it, and the negro respects us the more H
for it. Now, my reader, quit your col
infernal meanness, let your neighbors co:
alone. If you can't get as many fo<
hands as you want, sow down your wil
:land and cultivate ..and fertilize well lai
what you do work and you will be bir
more prosperous and happier, and
when old age, with all of its infirmi
ties comes upon you, you can look
back at a well spent life and rejoice
in the glorious prosperity of thosem
divine blessings, which heaven alone he
can bestow upon the good and the,
