CHAPTER III.
GRANNY NAR'? RELKASU;
:.y . . ? . , '.i j ?
Walter was getting worse daily.
Iii tempor?neo with its mighty oc
topus-like claws hugged him in
hoi' cl HO embrace, timi the result
was a man so changed in disposir
lion and manner, not td say per
sonal appearance, that his best
friends would not have recognized
him had they not watched his
gradual descent, and foreseen that
this WHS tho inevitable result.
Tho Bible truly says, "As ye
sow, so shall'yo reap," and Wal
ter's lifo was no exception to this
groat, majestic and universal law
of God.
Ho was no longer tho genial,
sun ny-tempered young mun he
once was, but was sullen and
morose. The shadows in his con
duct had now no bright, silvery
linings of kindness and generosity
to relieve their sombro hue.
His onco finn, quick step had
changed tc xMtiC'?"og gait ; Ivis
form was no loh^,. e>oct and man
ly ; his _o?C8 wereJ^owing (L^ll.
and l?streles?-oven his laughter
was forced and mit thiess.
Ho had now begun to sadly neg
let his daily work, and his bro til
ers felt that should he not soon
change for the better ho would re
?oive Iiis discharge from the fouu
dry-tho only wonder was that he
had boen retained so long. Once
each month, if not oftener, ho got
on a protracted "spice ;" at other
times he seldom came home until
after midnight-frequently in ti
s ta te of beastly intoxication-mak
ing tho night hideous with his
drunkou revelries. Yet, my reader,
"Rovllo bini not-tho Tnrnntcr bath
A ?mim for nil ;
Anil pitying toar?, not ?corn anil wrath,
Rent his fifi! ! '
This sud, deplorable state of
affairs existed a long while-so
long in fact that, with the excep
tion of Mrs. Harvest and "Granny
Nap," tho entire family became
disgusted with Walter.
Pat thought a "homeopathic
treatment of tho caso succeeded
by a neat coat of tar and feathers
might bo beneficial ;'' Robert that
"complete isolation with nothing
to read" would bo botter; what
William thought no ono knew
he only grew graver and more pre
occupied than was his wont.
.But it was as '"Granny Nap"
had so often said, "In God's own
time, and in God's own way."
In her humility, the thought
that she would be the instrument
of arresting Walter's erring feet,
and of bringing him for tlio first
time to a realizing souse of lits
dtity as a man, never entered her
thought?.
?She loved and prayed more-if
that wero possible, and-"waited
on tho Lord."
* -X- # * #
"An angel visited tho ? eon
earth" and "Granny Nap's" trust
ing soul was boroo on wings of
love to Him whom she had served
so long and so faithfully.
"Granny Nap dead?" "Yes,"
said Walter's mother to him, as
she met him at the door about day
break in tho morning, "And sho
died, my precious son, praying for
you. Then sho left him with his
dead.
Ho looked at tho calm, peaceful
face, tho meekly-folded hands
hands that always before this had
been strotched out to him in a
glad, loving Welcome-and ho was
thoroughly sobered.
"Granny Nap dead I"-over atid
over again ho repeated these
words, as if to force tho sad truth
homo to his heart.' How vividly
ho recalled her great, unsoliish
lovo for lura ; and tho thought
cunio to add groato" poignancy to
his grief-how cou!?.' ho over have
given her tendor, loving heart so
m ooh sorrow I
His lovo for his grandinothor
had boon tho groatest love of his
life, and he. had been lavish in his
affectionate caro of her. Never in
his most dissipated moments had
ho boon cross or rudo to "Granny
Nap"-ho was so glad to romom
bor that now.
Nothing had como botweon
thom until tho lovo of strong
drink took possession of him.
Time and again, aftor ho had re
covered from tho offoots of ono ol
his drunken revelries, ho would bc
so deeply touched by ber look ol
mingled sadness and loving re
preach-though she spoke never n
word-that ho would promiso him
self that for "Grnnny'a sake" he
would "turn over a now leaf."
But if tho "loaf" was turned
it wns only darkened by his owr
hideous sin, and nu?o blurred bj
tho bitter tears of his loved ones
than tho previous ono had been

MK. F. H. BARBER TELLS WHY SOME
PEOPLE DON'T MAKE MONEY
FARM INO.
[From (he Yorkot'Uc Fnquirer.]
Mr. F. H. Barber is well known as
one ol Ycrk County's most successlul
farmers. He lives at Richburg, but
owns about four thousand acres in
Eastern York, where he does most ol
huming. A reporter of the Enquirer!
met him thc other day at Leslie's, a!
station which he is building up on the
Three C's. The old gentleman had
just finished settling his accounts with
his croppers and having made a large
crop was in a real good humor for tell
ing how it was done.
He said to tbc reporter : "You can
put in tlie paper that I averaged more
cotton to thc mule than any other man
in York County."
"How many bales, Mr. Barber ?"
"Ten bales to the mule with twenty
six mules-260 bales. Now let mc see
you beat that il you can."
"Was your crop as good this year as!
usual, Mr. Barber."
"No, no. 1 can't say that it was, hut
hisr? is another point for you. 1 have
just paid one negro who runs a two
mule farm on my place $399.56. He
makes that much clear after paying
everything he owes mc-living and cv.
efytluhg, ami nearly every one ol a
dozen others have cleared over $1501
apiece.
"Now people say there is nothing in
farming, but I say there is. There is
more in it than anything else-there's
everything in il. That's my experience
and I know what I'm talking about
when I say it, my young Iriend. I mer?;
chandiscd seventeen years, and made
money. I have a one-third interest in
the Fishing Creek factory, and its ma
king as much money as any of them,
let me tell you, but I get larger returns
out of thc farm than anything else. You
can make thc farm pay 50 and loo per
cent, but you can't scpicczc any such
profits out ol i.'c store or factory."
"But how is it that so many people
lad to make a Hying on the farm, Air.
Barber ?"
"They don't work, that's why. The I
majority ot iarmers want three Sundays!
I a,week, .and nobody .can get along by
I woi'Kiog only half ?i'lhc Ihne. Suppose
you would take three Sunday's a week
in your business, how would you come
out? You'd bust, wouldn't you? That's
what you would do, and that's what
anybody else who tries it will do. Now
the larmer don't have to work any harder
or longer titan anybody else. Ile don't
have to work boin daylight till dark.
Not a hit of it. 1 have a piece of land
over next to the factory and have had a
standing oller lor the past three or four
years ot $2)0 a year to any young man
who would work it by the factory bell,
I just want him to put in ten hours a
day, and at thc end of the year I'll give
lum $250. That's fair, ain't it ? That's
as much as the factory hands work ;
hut it he'll work by the bell he'll be
wcrth every cent of $250.
"Then, there is another thing; Agood
many people try to farm, and they don't
know anything about it. Take the
common notion about guano. Most
people will put 150 pounds on an acre.
They will lay off their rows about three
lect apart, and il the wind is blowing I
they will lake one of these horns, so as
to keep the guano from getting out of
thc furrow, and string it along the row
in a fine white line. They are so care
ful about wasting it that if the string
happens to get broken for a foot or two
they won't even go back to patch it up.
Then they put in their cotton, which
comes up and starts to growing very
nicely, but if a little dry weather comes
dong thc collen turns sickly and they
say the guano burns it up. But it ain't
the guano. It is thc poor land that
burns it up. Now think about it. They
put in that little streak of guano. The
plant comes up and grows rapidly while
it lasts, hut so soon as the fertilizer is
exhausted, of course it dies down, be
cause lhere is nothing left for it to feed
on, so you see it is thc poor land that
does it. Now, to prove what I say. Il
a hundred and fifty pounds of guano
scorches the cotton so it won't grow,
two thousand pounds ought to set it
afire oughtn't it ? But it won't. It's
my expcrici.ee that the more fertilizer
you use thc more cotton you make, and,
in order to dem?nstrate the matter to
the satisfaction ol' everybody, I am go
ing to make a special experiment next
spring, and put two thousand pounds of
guano on one acre. And I'm not going
to burn anything up cither. See if I do."
"Do you rent your lands, pay wages
or work on shares ?"
"On shares altogether. It ?9 thc most
satisfactory way ol all. I furnish every
thing-the mules, tools and supplies.
Tho cropper furnishes nothing but the
labor. If I make he makes, and it I
lose he loses ; so you see it is to his in
terest to work, and thc harder the bet?
ter. I give them hall of everything they
make, and that encourages them to
make all they can. Some people don'I
give but two filths, but let me tell you 1
get as much out of the half as any ol

Mr. Drake's Corn Crop.
All tho newspapers are talking
about tho Drake corn crop. They
nro explaining "how it was done,
and some of tho more onvious
ones do not believe that tho same
oxporimont could ho repeated with
a like result. But the feet remains
that it was a South Carolina farm
er who gathered tho largest crop
of corn that has over been grown
on a single aero of land.
What Mr. Drake accomplished
in Marlboro county oan bo accom
plished in every other county in
the State. Our ?oil and climate
aro adaptod to the cultivation pf
every cereal grown in the temper
ate zone. There nre dozens of
fanners in Marlboro comity who
have been making phenomenally
largo crops ever since the war.
Wherever tho intense systom of
farming has been employed, tho
invariable result has beon largo
crops and full cribs. There is not
a farm itt tho State that cannot bo
made to yield double the avorage
crop by proper fertilization and
careful cultivation. Just as South:
Carolina has pressed its way to
tho front ns the most successful I
nmn.ufae.turing Stato in the South,
so it can bo m ado tho most pros
perous agricultural Stato in the
South. Our resources are practi
cally inexhaustible ; our rango of
development is illimitable. There
is no placo like South Carolina.

Law in thc Family.
People ure always glad to . shift
responsibility and Bhirk unpleasant
duties. Tho growth of tho State
inundation of
the State-the huntly: Th:tho good
o?d time when tho average Ameri
can-conpidorod himself an all-round
man, ablo to take care of himself
and lick anything in sight, every
family had a head. In those days
tho hoad of tho family made him
solf felt. Ho taught his youngsters1
morals and manners at tho fl regido,
and kept his eyes wido open. Now
it is different. Tho nominal hoad
bf tho family looks to tho Stato to i
keep his boys from carrying pistols,
playing cardB, buying cigarette?
and whiskey, and ho expects thom
to get all their morals and deport-!
mont from churches and public j
schools.
Tho now system is not working'
well. Tho State, tho church and
tho public school cannot entirely
take tho place of tho old-fashioned
daddy who held himself responsible
for his children, taught thom what
was right, and wore them out with
a hickory when they went wrong.
What is wantod is not so much
outsido law, but moro law and or
der in tho family. Men are mad o
or marred at the lire side. No arti
ficial dadtiy with a parcol of statu
tues, formal fllub-anb and text
books can tako tho place of the
natural daddy with his love and
common souse, and big hickory.
When a man makes, the right kind
of laws for his own family, and exe
cutes them, he need not bothor
himself ahoutStato laws and courts.
Ilia boys will novor noed tho legis
lature, a bench of judges, and a
