Farmers around here may be divided
into three classes: Those who have
been for many years clear of debt,
those who manage to make enough
each year to pay out, and those who
never pay out. Each class has lost
this year. Many who have never

the farmer, and to the hand. Tlfese
prices vary a little ; hardly any farmer
makes exactly the same bargaim..
One has made this bargain with his
men: They work four and a half days
in return for rations, horse-power for
one and a half days, to seven acres of
ground, and four dollars a month. He
thinks this a fair bargain Ifor both.
Somnesmen get hands cheaper, but
above is an average offer. Those who
have worked for wages the past year
ai-e without doubt the best off to-day,

Tagfhav~ felt the bad year as per
haps no.6ther class. They are the
ones who have been carrying over the
balances from year to year, until now
they ard "loaded up." They have car
ried the balances, trasting in future
crops. It seems now that they have
concluded that any further advances
will be suicidaland th~y say t hat t he
lien business will have to close. This
-will be a blessing to the country. I
know one merchant who has been
doing a small credit on open account.
He has failed to collect, while his
books record some good people, who
have never before allowed their ac
counts to run over so long.
The above are hard facts, and sad to
relate, but a roseate view of the pres
eut and future would be a delusion
and a snare. If the present price of
cotton is a normal one, what have we
to hope from next year's crop? Just
about as many acres will be planted,
(and the condition of the farmer will
be the sam-e.
