We have long wondered why so [
many changer) In the manner of life
with man. lint when we go back to
our childhood day and come along oa
our lives have brought uh, we have it
plain before uh. Science has done
the word. What is science? It must
be the mind of man, In rebellion
ugainst Cod in making a living, from
the sweat of the brow.
I will now give you the starting of
science as we huve It todny. In years
past, I and my partner, who was a
very indolent kind of u creature,
started out In the ouest of knowl
edge and fortune. We landed out
West whero ticks wero there by tho
millions. My partner got covered
with them and not being disposed to
exert himself let them work their
way 'nto his being and caused severe
inflammation and there being Ihoio
people there that Is averse to Cod's
law?wo call them doctors?they
found with my pard that ticks were
dangerous, and started a campaign
against the tick. Though in former
days we were associated with them
more or less without any evil results,
we would even scrape them from the
cow when we went to milk for years,
but this boy being overcome by mil
lions on bim at one time was con
vincing proof that they were dnn
gerous to life., well, we raked them
off and ho soon was at himself again.
That of course was proof enough for
science. Then the war against the
But just a short time my pard was
sleeping in the open and the flies had
full sway at his open mouth, and, of
cou? se, they took the advantage of
the opportunity and in a short time
he was in a bad fix again. So the doc
tor saw at once .the fly was a danger
ous Insect when in reality it was only
an cmetlo good for those who are
br.lious, though there was science at
wont for self interest and now we
must avoid tb" fly as a dangerous
Insect, and in bousing ourselves from
the tick and fly we have become lia
ble to tuberculosis, something that
did not exist till tho tick and fly wero
deprived of their worry. Then the
scientists take the place of these in
sects and have us carried to some city
hospital and there we have the high
cost of dying and through the discov
ery on my pard the scientists have
found that those insects work on
meats that are used for food, so they
must doctor and carry them to the
sanitarium to be1 examined and treat
ed before wo can get them to the ta
ble and now we have the high cost
of living. What pity that my pard
was over born, but for him' we now
would be living at our ease by work
ing half the time and moats v would
be like B cents instead of'26 cents and
wo would not hale had to have ill
we eat doctored on the go. ' Yes
science" is "?" great' ^wortter andV can
make dangerous the most' harmless
things of life and bring into existence
things that never existed and scare
to death' the etrongeBt of humanity
for fear of that which' will" never
come to pasB. So half of science is
a take and the other half is guess
'-vork fat. profit. So there you are.
I. N. SMITH.
A Flan to Aid Konthern Farmers.
Mr. Editor: I am personally Inter
ested In farming, therefore I have
watched closely the public efforts of
the farmers to better their conditions.
There are two conditions the farmers
iioyn ho.n making efforts to attain for
the last thirty-five years.
First? An absolute permanent plan
by which they, can get a loan on their
cotton when desired.
I Second? An absolute certainty of
securing in the fail and all the year a
high price for their cotton. . The far
mers by this time should realise that
calling meetings and pashJug res?lu
?loh's do hot help them and that reso
utlons will/hot compete with capi
tal, that any method to make them ab
solutely independent that is not bas
ed on capital Ib a failure tor the rea
son that-capital-is necessary to com
pete with capital.
There is a plan that, if the farmers
will adopt it strictly, will cause them
to bo completely independent, of the
wars of EJurope, the wars of .the ofl
entj wars in America.' speculators *n
Europe and in America and place
them In an everlasting and permanent
position to ho independent and when
attained wllj put the farmer on tho
road to prosperity and success. This
plan I advocated very concisely about
two years,agol (this one being more
elaborate.) The former was published
in a weekly paper. In South Georgia.
The Ptckens Sentinel, tho Easley
Progress, and the. Daily State. ' ".
Whenever the' farmer 1b always ab
solutely certain of the loan when he
needs it on his cotton, and always cer
tain of a" profitable price for his cot
ton, he has reached two positions of
great desiderata, and this they have
aspired for a long time and which
plan, when put Into operation, will
be the greatest achievement in market
ing cotton in the history of the world.
The question naturally Is, what Is the
plan, and can It bo adopted? Tho an
swer is. yet, if followed strictly. It is
.First? The farmera In each cot
ton county in the South organise a
Farmers' Cotton Bank and Waieho?se,
to be disconnected from each other by
taking shares.of one hundred dollars
a share, one may take'as many shares
as. he wishes. All share holders .-to
Share, alike, no preferred stock, and
raise five hundred thousand or one
million doliara of as mich as la nec
essary for each county.
Second? This money to be loaned
on? cotton only to 'farmers et flye per
cent interest and said Interest and in
au7J?*vrV? tty 'r>?id mc?ihjy in ad
vance", no "charge for storage, bo that
the debt will not got, larger than the
value of the cotton collateral.
> flfhltd? Tho,farmer Jehosits hia cot
ton In, tho warehouse^ draws On his
cotton warehouse weigh ta twelve
cents per pound on middling grade,'
or four-fifths Value-of the bale. Whoa
i The People
! pays the debt to the above named
I bank. His transaction is strictly an
individual matter and does not act iu ;
combination wiih any one; therefore |
this takes it out of the operation of ;
the Sherman anti-trust iaw.
Fourth? This bank can be closed I
when the cotton season Is over each
year to avoid the expense of paying
bunk officials. Including the weigher I
and grader of cotton.
Fifth? The bank officers to bo se
lected like all other bunk oftlcers and
be required to furnish a bond and to
get for their services adequate salar
ies, said farmers' cotton bank and
warehouse to be chartered and man
aged on strict business principles,
like all first class banks.
Sixth - This bank not allowed to
buy cotton at all, not loan money only
to farmers on cotton collateral.
Seventh? If the farmer fails to pay
his interest and insurance monthly in
advance, the hank, by agreement, is
authorized to sell his cotton and apply
the proceccds to his debt.
Eighth?Tliis hank to loan to any
farmer on his cotton who is not a
This will furnish them niouey and
at the same time keep cotton off of
the market in large amounts in the
fall and force up the price.
The presidents of the different. State
Farmers' unions should call the far
mers of their respective Statos togeth
er and appoint a committee of two
good farmers of influence In each
county to travel together and solicit
shares, beginning tho second Monday
in January, 1915. Build tho bunks at
some central point in the county and
be ready for business by the first of
September. Build sheds or shelters for
the storage of cotton; the expense of
soliciting shares, building banks and
cotton sheds to be paid out of the orig
I wish to say, but hot egotistically,
that this Is the only plan In the world
to put the farmers in a position where
they can absolutely control the price
of their cotton.
Tho farmers will have to learn to
look after their own interest and not
depend on the whims and notions of
legislators and not look for the aid
from the government, state or nation
al. The sooner they realize this the
better for them. The government has
only three things to do: First, pro
tect your life; second, protect your
liberties third, protect you in the en
joyment of your property.
The idea that the government should
aid you financially to promote your
Individual interest or private business
is a dangerous doctrine.
The.foregoing plan I would name
the Pickens county, South Carolina
Cotton ' Market Flan, and I will ask
that all the daily and weekly papers
In the South who are in sympathy with
the farmer copy this plan . My only
object in writing thin 'plan is to bene
fit the cotton farmer in thp South.
Very respectfully. * '".

"SELF-OEIL" DAY IDEA
HAS BECOME POPULAR
PERSONS ASKED TO GIVE UP
SMALL LUXURIES NEXT
FOR THE POOR
Donations Will Be Turned Over
to the Salvation Army
The suggestion made some* days ago |
by Mr. Ia'c G." Hollenian, prcsidem of j
the Peoples Bank, that the citizens
of Anderson observe next Wednesday
as a day of "self-denial," when each
one will deny himself or herself sonic
small luxury and give tho cash equi
valent of tho luxury to the Salvation
Army, to he used by them for local
purposes, has met with . wide favor.
And indications are that tbo g?n?ral
public will observe the day, giving
up their smaller luxuries for one day
and donating the money, which they
would have spont for them to the
cause of charity.
Donations to the fund will be re
ceived at Mr. Holleman's .office and
at the office of The Intelligencer.- It
lias been suggested that small boxes
be placed at various soda fountains
and cigar stands in the city for tho
receiving of these contributions. It
is probable that this will be done.
The suggestion is that the person
who is fond of a cigar, dringing at the
soda fountain, a pack of cigarettes,
candy or any other small luxury deny
himself or herself that luxury for one
day and give the money which would
bo spent therefor t? tho poor. It is
further suggested that those who ride
the street cars-or tavel in automobilen
deny themselves the luxuies of travel
for that day and give the cost of these
luxuries to the- fund.
