URENS, S. C, Sept. 8, 1805.
e wo had occasion to
pon the tendency of a
largo portion of tho press of this State
to ring tho ohanges weekly upon their
favorite text tho "aristocrat." Under
this over-roourrlug dehaagogic appeal
it is no wonder that tho State is largely
possessed with tho tendency to social
ism which in tho wealthy northern
communities and in tho crowded civili
zations of Europe constantly vox so
ciety and disturb the soolal fabric
Were it not that the llttlo proporty in
this Stato is so oqually distributed and
tho proporty holdors of more than
?? average intolllgonco, under tho preach
ing of tho ovory-day politician, unrest,
jealousies, madness, nihilism, would
threaten the vory existence of propor
ty. Fortunately tho man who owns
eyen a small home Is shrewd onough to
catch the drift of tho strong denuncia
tory utterances of tho speaker, that his
clamor is a cry for oflico only, and has
no farther drift. At tho South partic
ularly, and throughout our country
tbere has been always, as now, a strong
tendenoy towards tho acquisition of
land, tho establishment of farms and
plantations and thus tho growth of an
independent, intelligent population,
copoorvative in its loanings and const
ituting the very bulwark of poaco and
order. Thus the multiplication of small
farms throughout tho Stato is tho saf
est guarantee of a happy, contented,
liberty loving, orderly, intollleont clt
nship. It should therefore be tho
nd study of every loading citizen
in this Z every man protending to
polities, to encourage among our young
men the acquisition of sniall land hold
ings, and the ostabVishmont < oinos.
There is less penury, beggary and dis
satisfaction and' more prosperity in
Franco than in any of tho groat States
of Europe, duo to tho more equal dis
tribution of land among the poople,
under eonditious established a century
ago. There is much written recently
upon the tondoncyof tho young men to
desert the farms for city life with the
view to bettor opportunities and build
ing up rapid fortunes. Statistics how
ever carofully colloetod, show conclu
sively that of those who stick to tho
country, ninety per cent, acquire com
fort and indopendenco. while of those
?who flock to towns and cities only ton
por cent succood and grow to compet
ence and ease. The other ninety drift
and are lost in the scramble and crush.
The road to great fortune is through
commoroial and kindred pursuits, as
speculation, mining and groat ventures,
"Uftt the way Is strewn with wrecks,
ruin, and all tho calamities, casualties
and crimes that human offovt is llabh
to. Tho road^to success and happiness
lies in the middle way: persistent,
orious, economical effort,

bo classed together as twirlcrs in tho
competitive strugglo for oxlstonco and
a comfortable competence. Thero
