SIX AND TWENTY CORRESPONDENT THINKS BY SO DO.
INGA Gltfc?T MISTAKE WAS MADE-OTHER
I . Williamston, Oct. 12.-If the.
j 'farmers of thc South and West
i x had taken the advice of the far
mers unton and stuck to the
principles as taught by that or
. ganization what would the re
^Wilts b? today? They didn't
? ^grasp the opportunity when it
I presented itself and what is the
g: result? Because the other fellow.
? didn't stick, and because we
I ^idn't stick someone else didn't
g * and so it has gone on and on uh
I til thc union has dwindled down
I' * to a verv sm??ll number, and with
I ? out a doubt the ?few who have
I stood to the back are today ten
I times bctler off than those who
quit carly in the fight. .Those
who have been. guided ,by the
i teachings of thc union will scarce
? ? ly feel thc depression that has
now got thc entire country in its
fcrasp. Having failed to take
thc advice of others who had
our best interests at heart, and
to follow thc dictates of our own
conscience and lise' ''common
sense, who have wa got to blame
for our present condition but our
selves, lt is within ourselves thai
misery has fixed its seat. Our
disordered hearts and misplaced
desires are thc instruments of
trouble which wc .now. , endure.
There are those today who are liv
j jJng in case and plenty and know
PiOTwthing about the scenes o sor?
distress which are at this time
passing in aU parts of ; the world*
millions struggling for a poor
substitute to support the wife and
children whom they ..love, and
who look up to them with eager
eyes for the necessaries of life
which they can hardly procure.
How do we knOW 'but' that
ithe present troubles will turn out
|to be the greatest blessing . that
j we ha.ve ever rceiyed. We
cishould remember that by disap
pointaient?, and trials the violence
