In South Carolina wo have had a

farmers' societies-the Grange, tho
Alliance and Institute Clubs
havo all -.one and gone up in the
smoke of time like tho burning
down or the rotting away of old
buildings that have disappeared
and bettor structuroe have taken
their places. So it is with the
Farmers' Union. Wo have had
a vast aronnt of experience in
farmers' organizations and know
that the Union is building up a
structure upon a bottor plan and
upon a firmer foundation than all
the other organizations that have
We have learned many valuable
lessons in our mistakes heretofore,
and about all these mistakes can be
tined into good for the Union if
we manage rightly.
We want to impress unOfl the
minds of each and every member
of the Farmers' Union that ho is
one of the stones in the walls of
the castle that the farmors are
building, and that the whole struc
ture can be no better than the ma
terial of which the Union is conm
posed. Let every member ask of
himself the one question, if every
member of our Union did just as I
am doing what sort of a Union

Mr. J. 0. Stribbling,
Pendloton, 8. C.,
Dear Sir: It seems that my in
quiry of Mr. Brabham as to the
way he developed his cow pea so
that it would not shed its leaves
has developed some little interoat
in this most import ant subject. It
has surprised me no littlo that
none of the farmers in South Care-,.
lina took enough interest in this
subject to ask abont the m'atter.
Why was this; because they had
also developed this pea, andif, there.
fore, had no need to aski and if
this is the case why did they not
give this information to their
brother farmers as Mr. Brabhamn
has done?: I fear that it is because
the majority of farniers do not yet
realize the value of this plant, and,
~ 1's, therefore, do not tako the interest
in it that they should. The same
applies to many other advances as
well as to the subject of this letter.
' The average farmer has not yet re
dljged that one crop (cotton) will
not AS a rule pay.

e-old at a fixed prico by the farmer
instead of the speculator. 'Ihe
farmer can do this if he diversifies,
but not until he does. Look for a
moment at the condition of affairs
if this was universally followed by
the farmers of the South. By rais
ing everything on the farm needed,
and less cotton, thore would not be
the same necessity for money, but
if there was, as diversified farming
is more profitable than the one crop
plan, the farmer woild have the
money if lie needod it, and have it
all tho your round instead of in the
fall as with the cotton crop, and
then with ono-half to two-thirds of
cotton raised that wo now have,
the price would be sufficiently
high as to net the farmer as much
as he is now getting for his cotton.
This he would have as clear profit,
as he has been "living at home."
This narrows itself down to this
question: which had you rather do,
raise a great deal of cotton, no
home supl)lies, and take the price
for your cotton that is offered you,
or raise everything at home and
have something all the time to
sell and theii raise one-half the cot
ton you now raise and get as much
for it as you now get for it, with
the probabilities much in favor of
your getting more?

Fifteen de terminledl, resolute far
miors in any local Union Lodge can
build a good one-section warehouse
if they will comec together with the
conviction that this thing must be
done for their mutual protection.
If the actual cash to pay for al
this warehuouste cannot be raised by
the local lodge, and the meinbers
have the true co-operative spirit
aimon~g thomn that all union farmers
should have, there is nothing in
the way of them clubbing together
and making their own concrete
llocks and pultting up their wares
