LAND SHARKS FIXING FOR PREY.
The Virginia Chemical Com- E
pany, known as the fertilizer
trust has been buying up the
cotton seed oil mills of the At
lantic Oil Mill company, whose
headquarters are at Sumter, and
before the next season opens it
will not surprise us if the other
mills are gobbled up also. Then
farmers look out for a further in- x
crease in fertilizer prices, and I
whether or not the other mills d
are gobbled, the trust will regu- t
late the prices, of seed to be t
bought, and fertilizer to be sold. r
We have not been expecting the
Virginia corporation to reach r
out into the country to grasp s
control of the cotton seed oil r
mills, but we have been on the i
lookout for the mills to forinu- t
late some kind of an understand- s
ing with regard to regulating the r
prices to be paid for seed, and r
the price to sell meal. Of course, C
the combination would tix a lower c
price for seed and a higher price r
for meal. That is what combi- 3
nations are for, and corporations r
are organized to give financial t
strength to the combines to crush s
out opposition, and then monop- y
olize to the extent of squeezing e
the last cent out of the people t
Whenever you see a number of a
men putting their money in a c
joint stock arrangement the ob- t
ject is to make money, and if t
there exists any obstruction to
control, their combined capital a
will squeeze the obstruction by (
forcing it to do business at a dead r
loss until the owner must either r
sell out to the corporation or t
cuit business, then when in pos- e
session of an unobstructed field f
the cor-poration puts in its work ?
of making back with big interest I
the money it lost in forcing the q
obstruction out of its way, and a
the longer the monoply lasts the s
more will the people be the suf- t
There is only one way to pro- a
tect ourselves from the clutches I
of a combination of capital; and la
that is to refuse to patronize such a
schemes. If the combination n
undertakes to rob the farmer by t:
giving him a low price for his ti
seed, the farmer should not sell, n
but should put his seed back in t]
the ground from whence they o
came, and if the combination un- o
dertakes to extort a high price ia
for fertilizers, don't buy, even if f~
the crop is shortened thereby. s
What is the use of working in a
burning sun to enrich a lot of u
bloodsuckers who conspire to
gether to rob the people, and it
is robbery to stop free and open
competition. The farmer is a
forced to put his product on the ~
market, and take what the de- a
mands will give him, there is no
such thing as a combinationi with
him to name a price, but with a
combination of joint stock comn
panies, or cor-porations, common- t
ly known as trusts, the price is
named and forced.
The prices our farmers wereb
forced to pay for fertilizers for 0
the present crop, cannot be paid
with a profit at the ordinary
prices for cotton, and even if P
cotton should go as high as eight
cents. we cannot see any profit
to warrant the prices for fertili
zers; then, wher-e is the sense in c
a farmer wasting his substance ~
in a profitless task. It would beh
r t let all lands that cannot
~be worked without fertilizer lay
ide hnto put nine cent fer
tilizer into an eight crop. The
farmer who can make his crop
without the use of commercial a
fer-tilizers will be the man who c
can look you in the face an in
dependant man, and can snap his
fingers into the faces of, and defy ~
combinations and trusts. He does
not have to scorn his manhood byt
groveling in the dust of humilia-r
tion to ask for mercy to save his
corn crib or his home, but whata
he has made, little though it be,
it is his, to do with as he pleases. r
GETTING CI.OSER TOGETHER.
The Merchants Exchanige of V
Charleston has taken hold with n
enthusiasm Captain Thomas Wil- ia
son's project to put Charleston b
and this entire section of country g
in closer touch with the nor-th tl
and west, through a road to be ni
built to connect with the Nor- 0
folk and Western r-ailroad at H
Winston-Salem. This p)rojected d
r-oad will r-educe the fieght rates u
on coal from the fields in Penn- Il
sylvania and Virginia at least 11
forty cents a toin and all othiei
freights coining this way in t
p~roportion. The leading spirit
ini tis mnovemient is Captain
Tihomnas Wilson, who laid his c
plans perfectly, and had cver-y- e
thing in hand to begin operations b
befor-e tihe p)ublic knew anything s
about it. Charleston is v-erv tl
properly giving this project an h
enthusiastic support, for- her- d
business men readily see the ad- t<
vantage that city will have when u
the connection is made. It is d
ished. But should such a ques-!
ion be asked, let the answer be,
as Captain Wilson ever under-'
aken a business venture which
urned out anything less than a
agniticent success. By linking
'harleston and Winston closer
ogether, a new avenue for busi
ess is opened, trade finds new
iarkets, and the advantages
hus created will infuse new
)lOOd and new life into the busi
ess arteries of the city. Has
he venture the monev Yes.
\s soon as Captain WV ilson made
mnown his plans to somei money
d business men in Charleston
her did not hesitate to subscribe
o t'he stock, the fact that it was
is schome, comimfenide-lhd it to
heir business judgment, and
heir conlidence in his ability
nd integrity made them anxious
tivestors. We also know of an
stance, where Captain Wilson
mnfolded his plan to a wealthy
aan living in an adjoining State,
Vho immediately subscribed for
25,000 worth of the stock and
poke for $100,000 dollars of the
>onds. We are glad indeed to
ee the business interests of
'harleston so enthusiastic over
aptain Wilson's venture.

In the last issue of the Green

hat he has manufactured a stat

emembered that in our last is
ue we undertook to correct a
iistake we made in a preceding

olonel Hoyt pointed out to us
ur error, we took pleasure in

uggested that inasmuch as the

iublicly or privately suggested,
nd the fact was, that a public

rinciples, and then balloted for
nominee which resulted in
ol. James A. Hoyt getting a few
lore votes than the others who t
an against him in that conven
ion, and he was thereby declar
d the nominee. Now in the
ice of these circumstances he
les with the chairman of the

NCI.E BEN PUMPS HOT AIR IN GEORGIA.
In last Sunday's issue of the
Lugusta Herald there appeared
n interview from Senator Till
ian in which he denounced Sen
tor McLaurin in language more
lphurous than elegant, and in
hichi he intimated that the edi
r of this newspaper was a fac
r in influencing Governor Mc- 1
weeney's action in returning f
1se resignations. The senior
enator does us too much honor,
t if he is correct,we feel proud r
the result, because the Gov- t
enor's action saved the people .t
1e annoyance of a bitter cani-C
aign for which they were totally
nprepared. We think Senator
illman mistaken in this matter:

tid after Col. Wilie Jones, the '
Lairman of the Democratic com- I
ittee, had expressed a similar
iew after having had a talk withi
enator Tillman only a few I
ours before. We are satisfied Cf
tat not one of Senator McLau- i
n's friends approached thei
~overnor on the subject until t

olonel Jones, who is a friend of

The Sanctity of Wemanhood.
The Sabbath and Woman were God's
ist and best thoughts for man's wel
ire. A devout perusal of the biblical
ecount of the institution of the one and
lie creation of the other will enforce
ais conviction upon unprejudiced
uinds. Therefrom it will also be seen
lint Worship and Companionship are
vo accentuated needs of man. More
ver, the fact should be recognized that
omanhood. the crowning product of
reative power and wisdom, is no less
2ered in the eyes of God than is the
abbath: both were madec for man.
Ld mnan's highest good demands a due
egard for these prle-emninent gifts of
tod. Fearful penalties fol low~ swiftly
pon a disregard of duty toward them.
In considering the Sanctity of Womn
nhood, let us find satisfactory answers
>three pertinent qiuestions:
I. IN WHAT DoES IT CONSIsT?
(1) Super-excellence of her physical,
2tellectual and religious culture. If
'omanhood is to futill the high and
oy ottices thereunto assianed in the
rovidence of God, the demand for such
'aining is imperativ'e. The duties of
ister, wife and mother are unsurpassed
2 responsibility. To perform accepta
ly and efficiently the delicate and diffi
ult tasks assigned them, requires the
allest equipment of body, mind and
eart. To deny them this equipment
ian imposition far greater and mot'e
rannical than that of the Egyptians
xacting brick without supplying the
ecessary straw to the overtasked He
rews. No higher' duty devolves upon
arents and guardians. Not that they
hould favor their sons less, but the
aughters more, in view of the higher
eslonsibilities placed upon them by an
lwise God. A nation's character is
nown by woman's place in it. So, also,
(2) Stainlessness of her reputation.
L woman's rep~utation is priceless; it is
.er passport in social life. You brush
romn the grape that soft blue, or shake
co the rose that tremulous dew, and
ou mar fot'ever a life: "Good name in
orman," as the poet avers, " is the im
mediate jewel of het' soul." It is also
he streugth of her resolution. Shrink
ag fromn the, to her, awful blight of a
oiled reputtation, she is utterly help
ss. Powerless to reassert her elaim
a chastity, trutthfuilness oir other virtue,
en when entirely innocent she yields
: the crushing weight of false stigma
d pines away and dies. Seldom can
he survive a blasted reputation. 1-ow
arkly criminal, then, must be the con
uct or carelessness, whether her own
r another's, which brings the blight:
(3) Sacredness of her person. This
duly recognized in highly civilized
ountries. The degree of civilization
registered thereby, and no less in the
2dividual than in the nation. Florence
ightingale. Elizabeth Fry and Clara
~aton on the tented fields and in pris
s laboring, knew no peril of person
orally. The chivalry of the soldier'
d the purity of the woman for'hade it.
'he sacredness in which she holds her
wn person marks the degree of esteem
a whi.Ach se isl hlwb ali clase of
men. A woman who allows herself t
be handled, after the ynanner of som
unprincipled suitors, deserves the cor
tempt of respectable society. Ever
pure hearted woman is sensible of
painful shock when the opposite se
takes any undue liberty with her pei
son. She spurns alike the sentiment
swain toying with her hands as he sit
by her side, the boorish gallant wh
grasps her arm under the shameles
pretense of protection as her escort. th
wanton worshipper of her charms wh
asks permission to clasp her person i
the warm embraces of the moder
dance. She spurns them because sh
knows each is inispired not by a bene'
olent, but selfish and ignoble love. An
also, because she knows as by a divin
instinct that she will herself suffe
thereby loss irretrievable. Firstly.
loss of self-respect, than which there i
scarce a sadder. Secondly, a loss c
maidenly purity, over which angel
weep. Vestal virgins of old had n
trust so holy committed to then as la
womr.an today of keeping inviolate th
sacredness of her person-a templEr it
deed. Due regard herein also forbid
a pure hearted woman wearing volui
tuous apparel. A thoughtful perso
has asked, "Are any women ever sim
pleminded enough to suppose that th
attrmctions of very low-necked dresse
ever stir the hearts of noble manhood
Does any woman think that such 'shows
ever arouse in a pure man any feeling
other than those of pity and disgust
What excuse can he offered for thi
half dress styleye Verily none, unles
the wearer. by placing her bunting a
'half mast' me ins it as a token of re
spect for departed modesty."
A recent writer says, " The pure, in
nocent woman ought to have too mucl
regard for her purity and man's weak
ness to wear such clothes."
A latter-day device of satanic shrewd
ness for obtunding woman's conscienc
concerning the sacredness of her per
son, has been exposed and condemnet
vigorously by Rev. Sam P. Jones as fol
"I wish I had about five minutes oi
that arm-clutch. It does not argue tha
a girl is not virtuous if you see her wit
a, boy's arm clutched in hers: but I tel
you, he ain't. One or the other lack
virtue-maybe both. 'He that thinketl
on these things hath already becomi
unclean in his heart.' The girl is per
haps virtuous, but she has a mighty lov
down groveling sense of propriety: anc
the fellow, I would not trust him as fai
as I could throw this tent. Renembei

grabs you. Young lad, listen! 1 ov4
your character, your virtue, your higi
reputation; but in the name of God
make these boys keep .their hands t<
themselves! Say to them. 'You mus
never lay your hands on my person.
This is business, young ladies."
II. SHALL THE CHIVALRY OF MAN
HOOD DENY IT HER?
The highest earthly trust committe
to man is the protection of womanhoo<
against the multitude of evils that im
peril her personal purity, and making
the wisest possible provision for hei
culture and advantage. He is by di
vine appointment her only guardian
His chivalry ignobly (lies when a mat
betrays this honorable trust. The day
of knightly honor will ne'er be past
however, so long as our young men o
noble birth and nobler manhood cham
pion a cause so fraught with weal t<
earth. It is to the chivalry of stronc
young manhood woman must look foi
the defense and development of all tha
is pure, beautiful and good in her char
actei. She will not look in vain! I
view of the fact. however, that huma;
nature is much the same in all ages c
the world, and remembering how th<
traders in the temple courts encroache'
upon its sacred precincts, the fea1
arises lest a trend toward desecratiot
in this equally sacred sphere also fini
license in the hearts and lives of men.
III. WILL SHE DEMAND IT FO]
HERSELF AND POSTERITY?
The price you set upom yourself, C
Woman, wvill be paid! And posterit;
will accordingly curse or bless th<
memory of you. Therefore hold your
self--your character-at the high esti
mate your maker values y ou and secure
