I'rnprlctors,
Why "<Jo West?'*
At tliis Henson of thc year, peo
ple generally aro beginning to
think something about their ar
rangements for tim next year. Es
pecially ls tills so with yeing men
who have not settled down.
The first question a young man
considers is, "Cnn I not bet ter my
self I y going West ?" In seine in
stances men have gone from this
County ami been pleased with tho
West; but the majority have foll nd
the pictures of lids great country
over-drawn-only tho bright side I
presented-and a ft er t raveling from
one place to another in thc West,
ever seeking something better; lif
ter months of disappointment, ami
after exhausting tho money which
hurd labor ha's corned, they aro
conten? to return to South Carolina,
convinced of the fact by bitter ex
perience, that there is "no place like ?
home."
liefere a man should determino :
to leave his native ?State and take
up his abode in a land of which be j
knows absolutely nothing, some i
valid reason should be assigned*
some cause given. The reason
which is generally given ls, that all
the avenues of Ufo are full; the
country is over-stocked, crowded.
It is true that no more erroneous
idea than this ever originated.
South Carolina offers ns great ad
vantages to-day to young men who
ure willing to accept them, as any
State in thc Union, Our country
is to a great extent undeveloped!
The tide of lltimigutiotl has not
been turned in this direction, and
yet we hear the cry of "erowdotU
?crowded !"
Can it be that this State is pro
din dug more men tiltil) it can sup
;p?rf t, while oilier States, no larger
liban ours, can Und work for ten
?times as many? It cannot lie.
'The soil of South Carolina is mit
'barren, hut fruitful, and ever gives
a fair return for limiest toil.
The trouble is, our yoting mon
are afraid of work. The imagine
that away yonder, in thut undis
covered country, they can lind an
"El Dorado," wdiere, without work,
they can gather Holies, hence the
dissatisfaction as soon as soon as it
ls found that Arkansas and Texas
atl'ord no such places.
There is scarcely a singlo trado
or profession tlint is not remunera
tive ii" properly followed. It is
true tlie learned 'professions seem
to he full? Iva! these are not the
only honorable callings. The hum
blest blacksmith that toils for his
daily broad, if ho does his work i
well, basas much right to bold up
his head with pride and feel that
he is a benefactor, as the most dis
tinguished lawyer, or successful
physician. Honest labor is no dis
grace, and the time has come w hen
distinction of account of occupa
tion, is a tiling of the past.
hot us take a practical view of
tin; matter. How about agicttl
ture, is it crowded? Do you lind
men begging for land to work?
No; but you say it i-< uncertain, j
ls it more so here than In the West ?
Can you (amtroi lobor more success
fully In Arkansas than here?
Some men, WO seo, aro making
money farming, w ilde others are
gradually going in debt. Why
this difference! It is because one
pushes his business, and the other
allows Ills business to push him.
If you are not making money, you
may be sure that something ls
wrong in your mode. It ls not be
cause agriculture ls over-done.
Money can be made nt it, and that
tot?, In South ('andina.
A correspondent in the ridge
field Chronicle nominates Col. H.
W. Il ALL, of Laurens, for Lieuten

Col BALI, could fill any position
with honor to himself and t be State,
and we heartily endorse him for tho
position, though we would prefer
his name at the head of the ticket.
It would accord with tho "now

ple could depend.

Court.
Thc September Tenn of tho Court
of <!encrai Sessions convened on
Monday morning, his Honor Judge
W [TU KKseooN presiding. Soliel
(or DUNCAN and Mr. LAW. tho
stenographer, were present and
ready for bu si noss.
As tin'(?rand dury had already
hoon Instructed in regard to their
duties, at previous Terms, his Honor
confined bis remarks more particu
larly to matters which would prob
ably come before them al the pres
ent terni.
We have not been able to obtain
Hie charge in full for publication,
hut in substance it was as follows:
You pay taxes for the support
ol* government, and for this con
sideration the government guaran
tees to every eiti/.en protection in
his person and property. The laws
ol'South Carolina are sutHcieiit for
this purpose and it remains for the I
court and Jul les to enforce the laws.
You have la-en sworn to see that
every eiti/.en is protected ill bis
personal security, personal liberty,
and Ids private property, lt is not
our-province to question the wis
dom or policy of tin1 laws on the
statutebook. You and 1 itresWOl'tl
to enforce these laws as they stand.
I f anyone has offended against these
luwsj il is your duty to see that he ;
is punished If guilty, and it mat
ters not who it is.
In matters of taking human life,
it is always best to lind a true hill,
out ?d' Justice to State and also i<>
t he accused.
In regard the to carrying of con
cealed weapons, it ls highly impor
tant that you inquire into and pre
sent to the court any person w hom
you have cans." to believe luis vio
lated this law. I do not know how
it is in your county, but in other
parts of the State it seems that tills
law is frequently vlolatel. There
may be some now w ithin the sound
of my voice, who have upon their
persons concealed WOilpOlls. If the
weapon is concealed from ordinary
obser tioit, the law is violated.
If! n e.\a..'lining the Witnesses
who nave lioen s ."vorn in open Court
by the Solicitor, ?-woly,o of you
come to the conclusion ?hat upon I
these indictments for your con
sideration the charges agnins? 'be |
accused are founded in probability. !
you ought to lind a "true bill."
You are not to try the persons ac
cused, but to bear only the State's
side of the nh argea; and if. upon
hearing the witnesses in your jury
room, you come to the conclusion
that the testimony is sufficient to
put tho accused upon trial, you
should lind a "true hill." If there
is no evidence at all against those
indicted, or if the evidence for the
State is not SllHlciot to establish
what ls called a prima /aviv cane,
or to found the charge in proba
bility, you should discharge thc
persons indicted upon such charges.
Feeding- Corn to Horses.
Corn ls the bane of the farm
horse, as it is also of the horse do
ing any other sort of work, hot lie
cause of not being sufficiently nu
tritious, but because it makes too
much fat and not enough muscle.
The horse's muscle wears away by
friction. Fat also wears away un
der exercises, hut its disappearance
In 110 wise fessons the power for
either draft or speed. On the
other band, well-nourished and
vigorously exercised muscles, with
out a deposit of fat to keep them
company, are much more etlieiont
for any purpose for which tho horse
is kept than when there is a load
of fat to he carried. The trainer
acts upon the proposition, and
work s t be fut oil", experience hav
ing shown that the muscles, trained
down by exercise until fat accu
mulations are removed-fattening
foods being mainly abstained from
-give the best results in a case of
a -peedy bourse The same rub
will bold good with tho work
horse, though modified hy the de
gree to willoh tho movements of
the latterare slower than the for
mer. If the farmer has only corn
for feed, then be w ill he Wise to
make -ab - ol' his corn, or the greater
part of it, buying oatmeal instead.
If corn be used in whole Ot in part,
the effect should be carefully noted
ns to the extent V which fermen
tation -ets in, meeting this hy USO
of salt and ashes, at once lessening
tb" amount of oom fed. It will be
found thal horses feed freely on
corn will ea? earth when allowed
access lo it, a?, to a degree, this
neutralizes tho acid generated in
tho stomach, and gives relief.
Corn may be rated as the genera!
food for fattening stock-such as
are fed for their Mesh. All kinds
of fat toning stock are made ripe on
corn, with the addition of ?tn allow
ance of coarse feed for fodder,
lt I pe ness in tho horse is a very
dilierent thing from ripeness in
the fatted steer, for in the one case
it means full vigor of muscle w ith
an absence of fat. and in tho Other
an abundance of fat, no matter how
much j and as to the muscio, no
matter how inefficient tho work.

(COMMUNICATED.)
Tho Proposed Chungo.
Mu. KDITOK:-I seo in your last
issue an editorial Oil the road law
and tho manner in which thc ro
piircd work is performed.
You assort in very positive terms,
that the road law must he changed,
yet in tho last paragraph of your
article you say the question is a
vexed one and full ol' difficulties,
which you would not attempt to
remove.
No doubt your article is written
in good faith and w ith u desire to
correct the evils of the present sys
tem of tho road law, hut I cannot
believe that every sentence of your
article is strictly correct, nor do I
believe, from the language you
used, that you have a very (dear
idea of the difficulties complained
of, It seems to he a metaphysical
impossibility that a man should
discover defects in a system and
not l>e aldo to conceive of a better
plan. How eau "we reason, except
from what we know?" There must
be some standard in your mind by
which tho evils were judged of, if
not. your conclusions wore the
fruit of imagination. The concep
tion of a hotter plan would he the
means, and the only moans, hy
which you should ailinn difficulties
and imperfections in tho present
system. Von say "it is Impossible to
make permanent improvements un
der the proseid system of working."
If you moan by this that no per
manent improvements eau be made
upon thc highways under the pres
ent system, 1 cannot say that your
language is correct. Thal is tanta
mount to saying that a mile rock
could not beset up nora tree cut
down, nor a jutting rock blasted.
Voil are correct in saying thal
the necessary labor ls not given to
tho roads. The General Statutes
require every abb' bodied male,
from K! to ."><>, to work tho roads,
not loss than ll days nor moro than
1:2 in each year. You must have
made a very careful estimate and
traveled over every road in the
country, to bo prepared to say that
"nine-tenths" of tho work on tin*
roads is washed away in a week, if
perchance the rains should come.
No doubt the hands look upon the
work as a task. Mut this is no ar
? gumcnt against the system, bu
I cause taxes are also a task, hut
I they aro enforced by law; so could
: th" desired work.
The desire of Laurens c. Ii. to
have a go:?d trade is no reason why
tho hands wi???'U live miles of that
place should do moro Work on the
public roads than the Ja'.'' requires,
if the merchants want belter roads
to facilitate their competition, they
should bo willing to supply the de- I
ttelency over and above what tho
country is required by law to do.
Some w riters have undertaken to
say how tho roads should be work
ed. They ask for a Change of tho
law from road duty to taxation.
This scheme lias great objections,
which give it no higher claim than
t ho [?resent ono. Thb system would
requjre tho employment of skilled
overseers and high-wages hands.
This plan must grow out of tho
idea that property and not brains
ami muscle must pay all taxes.
It must have grown up since the
abolition of slavery, winni more
than ono half tho population, wdio
wore without jany propery, w ore I
ni.ule citizens. In keeping with
this view, the law was more equi
table in its inception, for w hen this
law was passed by tho Legislature
tho negro himself was property,
ami his owner worked in propor
tion to Iiis property. There is no
doubt that property should pay the
burdon of taxes for Internal im
provements and tho support of the
Government, but it is not a heavy
in rond upon natural liberty to re
qtliro the man w ithout property to
pay a pedi tax and work the public
highways. As a price for such an
imposition, he receives the bless
ings of public education and the
guarantee of personal security at
the hands of tho Government. He
should be willing lo give value '
for the protection and advantages
be enjoys at the hands of the State.
If tho poor mau has to contribute'
at all to tim working of the public
roads, it ls bcttoi for hiiy lo give
bis labor than to pity money, for he
can work the roads at a time when
be cannot work upon his farm. At
a tim?' ol' tho year w hen tho crops
an? "laid by" bo can better alford
to work a day than to pay 2~> cents,
for at that (imo of tin' year money
is ?cnrco, and the demand for work
at good wages is at a low ?dib.
You may say be eau pay his road
tax at tho same time lie pays his
other taxes, but ibis w ill diminish
the income of bis yearly crops,
which is hardly sufficient to pay
his other debts. We had better
"boar the ills we have than fly to
others wo know not of."
The proper remedy is to enforce
and not chungo tho present law.
Apply the general lash of the news
papers in regard lo the enforcement
of t he law. Newspapers may apply
the lash to "btw lessnoss," but they
uro not tin* only organs to dictate
to tlio legislature as to the Wisdom
of changing existing laws.

Marlboro the Banner County.
(Kron? Unjojl Times.)
I hiving beeb solicited to give un
Account of my trip to Uennettaville,
I feel ;t my cinty to do so, but have
misgivings as to my ability to suc
ceed in giving A correct statement,
nod nt the sumo time prtne in
structive und interesting to those
of your readers who ure interested
In agriculture.
l will undertake, however, ? short
account of my trip to Marlboro, the
banner eon lily of South Carolina,
in un agricultural point of view.
Oil my way I saw many Imo crops
of both cotton and corn, also some
very inferior ones, showing thc
want of proper culture. I was in
formed by those who knew, that,
as a general thing, those inferior
crops belonged to negro tenant*.
1 had tho pleasure, through the
kindness of my host. (Mr. .1. Fur
man David,) of visiting a? goodly
number of farms in and around
Bc?not ts ville. It was a grund
sight to behold the extensive and
magnificent ileitis of corn and cot
ton.
The lands arc nearly level; water
will not run either way along (be
rows, some of them being over one
mile in length. The farms look as
neat as can be; every row is as
straight as an arrow; no weeds to
lie seen along the roads and ditches.
Their cotton rows are from throe
to four feet wide, fourteen to twen
ty-four inches in drill, one stalk to
thc hill, and to stand at some dis
tance you cannot tell which way
the rows rim-the cotton lapping.
I cannot say what the yield will
be, having never seen such be
fore. The farmers claim from one
to two bags per acre. I saw no
cluster cotton: it is condemned;
they prefer tho the limbed va
rieties.
Thc corn-up-lnnd-rows six feet
wilie, throe feet in hill, one stalk.
It is thought will yield from thirty to
forty-five bushels per acre. I saw
no prolific varieties-only from one
to two curs to the stalk. Nearly
all the corn land luis three rows of
peas to the corn row-ono row on
each side of corn ami one In the
middle of row-about eighteen
inches between hills, and they look
tine, nearly shading the entire
ground.
All, or nearly all, their stubble is
down in peas, and they are now
kneo high, very uniform and regu
lar, covering the entiro surface
with mature peas, and are being
gathered. The most popular pea
is what they call ?The Life Pre
server, which is nothing more nor
less than our old Whip-poor-will.
One magnificent farm owned by
Mr. David, fronting the road, is
laid off In sections and labeled,
giving amount and kind of fertili
zers, and also what grew on the
land tho previous year. One sec
tion following pea stubble was far
superior to all the rest, showing
What ai greait renovator of the soil
tlie pea is. And rest assured the
farmers here have found lt out, anil
are making use of them.
What ti magnificent sight to see
so many acres in peas. I notice
that they cultivate every other row,
both cotton and corn, alternating;
in other words, they plow every
other row, then going back and
plowing the other, claiming that
it is best, it not breaking all the
rootlets ait once, consequently not
stunting tho growth of the plants.
Also, by this mode of culture they
go over the crops oftener, making
it a rule to go over with plow every
tell or twelve days. They are
very liberal In tho use of fertilizers,
using from UKI to 8(10 pounds to the
acre. Some apply all ait once,
others at different timesdarlngthe
cultivation. Their favorite for
mula is, '2 parts acid phosphate, %2
of cotton seed meal and 1 of kahlil.
They prefer the meal to the crude
seed, claiming, from experience,
that it is IK'SI, being more avail
able as plant food.
Our meeting was harmonious,
instructive ami edifying. BeU

to keep thc best and keep it well.
Try plaster on all kinds of soil

There is a way to enrich our
lands; that is hy plowing often and
raising clover, ami all of us cnn
keep more stock and make more

cnn increase our forage crops each
year by u little calculation before

Peas are cheaper food for pigs
than corn. They fatten them very
rapidly, although they do not make
as solid ?Kirk ns corn. They have
this advantage over corn: They
