T wei vc Cont Cotton.
Sometime Pgoa two horse ten
ant said : "I tell you, I believe
that 6-cont cotton is better Xor
the farmer than 12-cent cotton."
Wo asked him to explain him
self. Ho said :
"You see when cotton is 12
cents tho farmer, especially ii'
he is a poor sort of one, will plant
all of his best ground in cotton.
He will put the poor edges in
corn and not manure it, and if
he is pushed, as he always is
with a big cotton crop, he will
neglect his corn crop. When
fall comes it takes all of his 12
cent cotton to pay for guano,
clothing and supplies. Tlie first
of January linds him with about
corn enough to last till the iirst
of Mareil, a few half-starved cat
tle around tho lot, a sack of
western Hour in the pantry and
a little piece of white western
meant hanging up in the kitch
en. When cotton is six cents, if
the farmer has any sense at all,
ho will raise corn, sorghum syr
up, potatoes, oats, wheat, hay,
fodder and garden truck in abun
dance with some to spare. When
his 0-cent cotton is gathered and
Ilia guano bill paid, the balance
of the money is clear. He can
then lay in clothing, sugar, cof
fee and farming untensils for
another year and be independent
of liens and mortgages."
I)o the farmers who read the
Spartan agree with this tenant?
Do they believe he is correct in
his conclusions? He lias surplus
syrup to hire forty days hoeing
next summer. His surplus corn
will help buy clothing, migar
Now, if you incline to the
opinion that it is bettor to raise
your supplies than buy them, or
do without, begin at oiico to plan
for your'small grain crop. Oats,
especially the hardy varieties,
may be sown tip to ?irst of No
vember. Sow for an abundant
wheat crop, liaise everything
you need. Do not dopiend on
the store for everything. Bo in

and thou you will prosper.-Oar

Attention, Teachers !
Thc Marlboro Teacher's Council will
hold its next meeting at MeColl on Sat
urday, November 12, 1892.
It is earnestly desired that ns many
of tho teachers as possible bo present.
Tho object and aims of the Counoil
aro of such a character that no teachor,
who fecbi nn innate desire to do more
for those over whom he wields such
vastiniluences, cannot bo strengthened.
lt is a singular faot that, out of the
largo number of common school teach
ers in Marlboro county, not owe attends
these monthly meetings.
Is it possible that they who teach
the/greater part of tho public funds are
so indifferent to thc work that they
will not attend those meetings for the
elevation of the teacher's profession ?
No plea con ba advanced that tho sal
aries do not justify their efiort. It is an
organization without a Trensuror.
Aro you waiting for higher salaries,
yet doing nothing to merit them?
Were the $3 00 poll tax to become
incorporated as a part of our school
law, and public schools continued for
six months in tho year, ninny of the
so-called teachers would have to fall
out of rank?, behause of their incompe
tency to do tho work.
Then, let us as teachers show to tho
school natrons of Marlboro that wo aro
fully alivo to tho work entrusted to our
caro, and fo3tor every institution that
tends to tho advancement of this im
Somo good speaker will bo present
to address tho Council.

THE CHURCH AND TH E POOJf
Doos It Consider that ono Man's Soul
ls as Good as Another's?
Rev. H. M. Brooks, of Paris,
Illinois, in tho K. of L. Journal,
"Why is it that religions pa
pers are, so many of them, eager
to seize tii^oii opportunities to
say spiteful, imoharitabJe and
often untruthful things in dis
paragement of organized labor V '
My answer to your question is :
Because the olmrcb is the enemy
of the common laborer instead
of a friend to him, as was Jesus
the Christ. It is said in the Bi
ble that "tho common people
heard Him gladly,'5 and follow
ed Him in such crowds that they
"trode one upon another."
They followed Him because they
found Him a friend to the masses.
And I wish to say without fear
of contradiction, that tho gov
ernment, society and the church
are all the enemies of tho poor,
the unfortunate and tho crimi
nal of our country. There are
some honorable exceptions to
this indictment, but with tho
church it is the exception where
it ought to be the rule. We
have a class government, a class
society and a class church. The
preachers and a few representa
tive laymen are wont to go to
conventions and conferences and
there to discuss "How shall
we roach the masses?" When
the truth is-the church dosent
want to reach the masses. If it
did, it would do it. How does
the politician reach the masses?
By going to them. Why does
he roach tho masses? Because
he believes that one man's vote
is as good as another's. And
when the church ?on?lu?les that
Olio man's soul, in as good .
anothols'a, tno?ij :vnc? nuu tili
then, will it roach the masses.
The church is after those who
have financial and social inilu
enees. If some one with great
linancial ability comes into the
church it constitutes suflioient
excuse for a long newspaper
article, but if a poor man or wo
man comes into the church it
casts a gloom over the whole
congregation. And I have known
a few persons who were poor on
joining the church break up a
great "revival." Here is an il
lustration : A man may die to
day who is poor in dollars and
cents, but rich in character, and
when he is taken to his last rest
ing place there are hardly enough
to let him into the cold earth.
But on to-morrow a rich man
may die who is a pauper in char
acter and a millionaire in dollars
and cents, and when the time
comes to take hint to the confines
of the tomb every fool in the
country will be following him
to the disgust of all well regula
ted minds-elbowing eachothor
trying to see who shall show the
most respect. A poor man steals
$20 worth to keep away the wrolf
of starvation, and he goes to the
Eonitentiary for five years. A
ank cashier steals $10,000 and
goes "scotfree." In tile great
struggle between the bond hold
er and bread winner the church
lias always been on tho side of
tho strong. The church has
stood by and watched the cor
morant land thieves and money
sharks of this and other nations
take the people's land and burn
the people's money; introduce a
financial system that is fast re
ducing us to a nation of paupers.
All this the church has watched
without saying one word in favor
of tho weak.
, Tho whiskoy bnsinoss in Savan
nah is ono of tho moat important
foaturosin tho tradoof that city. Wo
aro told by tho Morning JNCVJS tho
annual receipts of ono of its crack
saloons amounts to $50,000, and
that tho drinking at this placo "does
not start :activoly until about 8:30
o^clook, but from, that timo until
about midnight, and sometimes af
tov, tho barkeopors aro kept on a
steady jump attending tho wants of
customors." And tl\oy say that
Savannah is ono of tho soberest
towns in Goorgia.
Thc liioii ?iiiw.
A great fleal has been said, from
time to timo,, about tho ropoal of
tho lien law. Different views aro
ontortainod on the subjeot of its re
peal, some advocating, while others
oppose. And tliere aro doubtless
cogent reasons both for and against
its repeal ; but at prosont, as wo
soo it, tho preponderance is in fa
vor of tho law.
The repeal of what is known as
tho "Agricultural Lion Law."
would not affect tho credit business,
so long as tho law regulating ohat
tel mortgages remains as it is. In
stead, of executing a lion, tho per
son applying for oredit would bo
required to give a mortgage on his
prospectivo crop. What would bo
tho result? Why, simply to put
tho Honor moro completely at tho
mercy of his creditor by taking
away from tho impartiul officers
of tho law tho euforcomont of tho
lion upon a broach of itsconditiou
and subject his hard earnings to -
soizuro by irresponsible ago nts pri
vately appointed by tho mortngoo,
who, too, in many instances, might
bo fiuanoially irresponsible. At
present, when tho lienee attempts
to enforce his lion, ho is required
to give bond with good sureties to
answer to tho Honor for all dam- .
ages caused by an illegal siozuro.
But thoro is anothor and strong
er reason lor tho continuance of
the law at tho prose ut. timo. So
long ns our homestead and oxomp
tion law inhibits tho lovy Of $1,000
worth of land and $500 of porson
al property , tho ropoal of tho lien
law, involving tho necessary
ohaugo in tho chattel mortgage. Jaw
above indioated to make it oflect
ivo, would practically amount to
dohyiugored.it to a largo part of
our tillers of tho soil. Tho repeal
would reduce them to tho condi
tion bl (fay ja?'O?ota 'un: ?v???n%x&*s
compel thom to becomo howers of
wood and drawers of'water for tho
well to-do. Whon the chango ia
made, let it bo accompanied by
tho abolition of our homestead and
exemption laws, thus placing
every man on an equal footing in
tho ?latter of credit.
Let us re our to tho law which
prevailed prior to tho war, when
any and all property owned by a
debtor can bo levied and sold
for payment of his debts. When
this stop is taken,- then and not
till thon, should tho poor man bo
doprived ot the means of credit.
Do not cry out against tho law
becuse, in some instances, it may
be abused by tho thriftless and tri
fling. Tho worthy poor should
not bo made to suitor for tho short
comings of tho profligate. Credit
to somo may bo a curso, but to thou
sands it is a necessity and a bless
