Editor Herald and News:
t I ft'11 'i subscriber lo your 71aper
T wish In drop a few' lines for the
I uion Department of Newberrv county.
To the brotherhood of I he F. E. &
, f D. of Newberry county, Brethren:
W hat do we aim to accomplish by or!
ganizing? De we mean as an organized
body to meet from time to time,
at our respective locals, to be benefited?
If so in God's name let each
and everyone of ns from this time
henceforth keep our business strictly
to ourselves; then soon I he non-union
men will become very much interested
about our order and business and
when they fail to learn outside of
the Lnion what we insiders are doing
they will place some confidence in our
organization and come into (he Union
and not until then. So, brethren,
I beseech you one and all, in the name
of the Farmers' Union and in the
name of the brotherhood, that we live
up at once for a more determined
fight for our rights, and for equal
righls lo all. Now, brethren, we all
see and know we are talking and writing
too much. Let each of us exam|
ine ourselves and profil 1 hereby.
Now. brethren, we have a hand to
* hand fighl, and well organized we
can accomplish our aim; unorganized
we can accomplish nothing.
Always be on guard. All other
classes are organized and they have
wonderful success. Why? Jus1 hef
cause, they are organized lo accomplish
a certain thing, and are business,
when they have their meetings.
We know nothing of them and never
j will know what they do. Why? Just
because its a secret organization and
i I hey I ell not. T do honestly believe
ji we, loo, should make ours a great
I deal more slriclly business than heretofore.
Now, we call our organization a
Farmers' I'liim. Who a farmer?
f A y ' '> ?>i" a in.in 'JI ami upwards.
I do think, from a general standpoint
l!.i on! "farmer.!" ought not lo be,
considered here under the age of 21
years. Boys are not men here in'
Newberry. n11bough wo ili.it jm? men
v?!io;iM loo!: eft or the ili-ar b >ys teach
tlioiii to ho useful and tanners, so
when thev reach the age ui' manhood
they may then be well equipped for
any and all duties in life. I am a
member of Kutherford Union No. 19o.
\\ e have a fair mrmbeshin of male
members no children. I don't boast
being sis so many say, a true blue
Union man from sole o!' foot to
crown of head, though I think our
union the grandest organization the
farmers ever have had,I leave it with
mv local and other union people
whether or not I am a union man or
not. T do think the Farmers' Union
strietlv a business organization and
not children's play.
Brothers, let us get down to business
and not bolt her so much about
other fellows so, if we hold out faithfully
and do a great work, let our
good works follow us.
Yours in the Union,
O. IT. Amick.

The Audubon Society.
The Audubon Society, of South
Carolina, lias begun systematic work
in Newberry county. State Secretary
James TIenry Rice, Jr., arrived
two days ago and at once began organizing
for the protection of the
birds, game and fish of the State.
It was evident that the work was
needed for on the day after coming
here Mr. Rice had two warrants issued
before Magistrate Blease for two
parties for violating the law against
shooting partridges out of season.
This is entirely in line with the record
of the Audubon Society in South
Carolina and in other States.
To prevent misunderstanding it
should be explained that the Audubon
Society is merely an organization of
citizens for the purpose of protecting
the birds, game and fish of the State.
Any citizen may become a member by
paying the membership of five dollars
and an annual due of one dollar.
The society in this State is chartered
by the legislature and the objects
are set forth in the charter.
I hose objects are tin1 disscminaIion
oli information about birds among
I tIre people of the State and the enforcement
of laws for the protection
of birds, game and non-mi oratory
fish. All the migratory fi^li. such
for example, as shad and the like,
come under the care of the fish commission.
The society is given power
to recommend the appointment of
wardens who are paid bv ;he -society.
The principal work of the society
of course lies in protecting insect
birds, for the work of insect birds is
absolutely essential to the raisin? of
crops. Space is lacking to go into
details but the United States department
of agriculture estimates that insects
inflict damage on the crops of
i the I nited Slates to t ? n? enormous
| total of over $700,000,000 (seven hun!
dred million dollars') each year and a
loss of one hundred million dollar*
to the forests of the country.
Now birds constitute the only effectual
check on the ravage-? of insects.
Tn Texas I lie Mexican boll
weevil was about to wipe out the important
cotton industry of that great
Slate and the insect was spreading so
fast that it also threatened the cotInn
industry of the entire South.
Science was helpless until the birds
took a hand in the game and the boll
weevil was checked. The chief agent
in stopping the ravages of this pest
was the hullbat and very naturally
the State o| Texas is taking stringent
measures to protect the hullbat and
even going so far as to buy the eggs
and have them hatched out in incubators.
Likewise the partridge has proved
an efficient check to the potato bug
wherever partridges are at all numerous.
Tn South Carolina the partridge
holds a check on the dreaded
billbug, whose destructive work is
seen in corn, where the larvae of the
billbug, a small white worm, eats out
the pith of the stalk until the stalkfalls
over and dies.
nine birds eat their own weight in
cutworms every day during (lie season
and the robin will destroy from
l/o to 200 caterpillars and the pupae
of these caterpillars daily, thus making
from 17,000 to 20,000 caterpillars
taken out of the community each
year by a single robin.
To make a long story short it is
estimated by the department of agriculture
that, crops could not be raided
more than two or three years,
should the work of the birds s^>p.
The whole civilized world has set
its fiat against the wholesale destruction
of birds that has gone on so
long and so persistently. As a rule
most boys violate the laws without
knowing what the laws are. They
should be taught what are the. laws
[and why they should observe I lies.*
The State of South Carolina per
mils certain birds to be killed dining
-'i slated season. These birds an
swans, wild geese. brant, ducks, cur
lew, plover, rails, gallinules, riei
birds, black birds, sandpipers, willets
partridges, wild turkey, snipe, wook
cock and dove.
All other birds are non-game bird
and must not be killed at any time
| nor must their ues(s and eg?,rs be de
stroyed, nor must their plumage In
had in possession by any one. Tin
only exceptions are (he Rnglish spar
row, the sharp-shinned or blue-darte
hawk, the Cooper's hawk or hen
harrier, the duck hawk, the grea
horned owl and all birds which are b;
nature destructive of other birds.
Crows are permitted to be shot 01
a man's own premises when they an
No game bird or other bird may bi
sold or served at a hotel or restauran
at any time in South Carolina; no
may they be shipped out of the State
This'about covers the bird laws, a
least the most important of them. Th
season fir shooting partridges is froti
November 1~>, to March 1.
Mr. It ice has met considerable en
couragement in Newberry and has se
cured a number of members fron
among leading citizens. Dr. J. A. 1:
Scherer is a charter member of th
Audubon Society and liis whole hear
is in the cause. A list of member
may be furnished later.
! The society has no income excep
I from membership dues and from non
resident license fees. It depends up
on the help of the individual citi/.ei
! who wishes the birds of his countr
! saved. Nothing is required of mem
bers exccpt the payment of their due
and moral support. No active wor
of any kind is asked, such as report
ing violations. This work is don
through the warden. Mr. J. W. lien
: derson is warden at Newberry.

Mr. Rvans has done not him: of lat
years to keep alive tiie unpleasant
j 11 ess of the early 'PO's, but on Hi
? contrary has behaved himself in a dit
| nified. manly way. Under the mo>
I adverse and often unjust criticism
i he lias not uttered a word of con
: plaint <>r vituperation. He has tlm
shown himself to be a man of poise.
All references now by our papei
I tit the days of factionalism is ill-tin
ed and in bad taste to put it milril|
It shows Mr. Rvans' broailness ?i
J view that he does not call at tent io
j to the position of his opponent i
those days of division. As a mer
matter of petty polities lie might <1
this with great effect. He does in
ask election because of past diffei
enees, but on his own merits. Tie ?q
peals to no class or faction but to th
sober judgment of all the people. Hi
speeches have been thoughtful an
| dignified, without the least appeal t
i prejudice or ignorance.
It is urged against him that he ha
had enough. Such argument impli(
that a scnatorship should go to
man who has failed to get something
His opponent has sought ollice befon
even a seat in congress. So a sent
torship by this token should be r<
fused a man who has held high olTk
and given to a man whom the peop!
have refused to give otTice. Such ai
gument shows a low conception of tli
position, the highest in the gift of tli
State of South Carolina. To urg
against a candidate for (lie president*
of the nation thai he had had enong
would be rediculous. To say thai
