Tho Farmers Institute.
The Farmers Institute hitherto ad-1
vertised was held in this city by Presi
dent Cralghead and Professors of
Clemson College on Friday last.?
Hon. A. 0. Fuller presided and Mr. O.
P. Goodwin acted as Secretary. While
the Institute was not largo, not so large
as it should have been, there were pro
bably sovonty five representative farm
ers present and a number of tho citi
zens of the city attended, largely to
their profit and interest. President
Cralghead lead in tho interesting
work of the day, explaining the intent
and scopo of the work. He explained
that the great universities of Europe
were interested in spreading the cause
of education, that knowledge was
being brought closely home to the
people, and art and science was being
largoly made familiar for practical
life. Ho then discussed tho Clemson
Collego and the work It was doing and
what was oxpected of It as affecting
particularly tho agricultural and in
dustrial classos in this State. The
Stato's appropriations with tho Fed
eral appropriations might sound ox
travagant to us, but compared to tho
resources of Northern schools and col
legos and thoso of such States as
Missouri and Michigan in the Wost,
woro but moager and Inadequate To
make tho College of advantago to
those of modorate means, othor than
tho very rich, tho resources of the
College must bo ample and gonorous.
Professor Wyman, then delivered an
interesting lecturo upon tho horse,
which all enjoyed, as every man
pricked up his oars at tho mention of
this noblo friend of man. Professor
Hard in had for his theme tho live sub
ject of water, drinking water, wells,
springs, artesian wolls, rivers and
lakes, and groatly Interested tho In
stitute. Ho was followed by Professor
McGoo whoso theme was tho grasses
and hay lands, moro especially the
grasses adapted to our soil andclimato.
Tho programme was exhausted with
a very interesting lecturo by Profes
sor Hart upon tho Dairy, but specifi
cally upon silago as practiced at Clem
son in the dairy department and else
where where the silo had gained a
footing. The day was much enjoyed
and at tho conclusion of tho exorcises
tho following resolution was intro
duced by Mr. O. P. Goodwin: "Re
solved that tho thanks of tho Farmers
Institute this day held in this city aro
hereby tendered to Professors Cralg
head, Wyman, McGec", Hart, and Har
dln for their able and instructive ad
dresses and that wo will gladly wel
come them again at an early day upon
a similiar mission." Tho resolution
was seconded by Messrs. 13. W. Ball,
Col. J. D. M. Shaw and Dr. A. C. Ful
ler. President Craighead responded
In suitable terms expressing his pleas
ure nt tho opportunity of coming to
Laurons and thus a pleasant and in
structive day was closed for tho farm
ers of Laurons.

A (iood Suggestion.
This communication luv? been
ready for the public prints for
some timo, but I have withheld it
until tho interest and excitement
that usually attends an election
had subsided. There are certain
conditions that confronts the peo
ple of South Carolina as agricul
turists, and I havo for sometime
past advocatod organization as the
best and speediest way to meet
thoso conditions. Lpt us examine
the conditions, and see if the neces
sity exist for such action on the
parfof tho people. Tho first of
these is the hind?the proper care
and preservation of tho cultivated
lands of this State, and especially
the Piedmont section where the
land is subjected to such heavy
drainage. I have traveled over six
or sovon counties in the Piedmont
section within tho last year or two,
and from a careful survey- I find
that there is vory little of the
timbered land that enn be cleared,
and a groat deal of the cleared
laud has been turned out as worth
joss, and beyond redemption. So
there is nothing left for us to do
but to take proper euro of that
which is in cultivation. No sane
man will deny, but that the top
soil of all land is the producing
soil, and I find that the surface of
the earlier cleared lands has been
reduced below the original, so it
follows, that to raise land to a
high state of cultivation where sub
jected to drainages, it must be held
together. In the counties above
mentioned, Laurcns lias made as
much progress along this line as
any of the others, but it is eon lined
to individuals and very small sec
tions. In an organization of this
kind, care must be taken to give it
proper shape and direction. To
ibis end, I have advised that or
ganizations be established in suita
ble localities or in each school dis
trict and bring the agricultural
masses together and thoroughly
discuss the condition and then ad
vocate a rigid application of the
remedy. Wo have the terrace, the
ditch and the lenace-ditch. The
use of each can best be determined
by the inclination of the land.
There are other questions that can
be profitably discussed but they
have their places in the future.
Believing that the secret of success
on tho farm lies in tho productive
ness of the soil, I cannot but look on
this land question as overshadow
ing them all. As 1 have not been
accustomed to writing lor t he pub
lic prints, I desist, for the present.

It Is amusing to see how ' 'pi acti
cal polities" influences the minds
of some able editors. A number
of papers in commenting on Edi
tor W. W. Ball's trip to Indian
apolis Democratic eon vent ion seem
to imply that ho was foolish t<> go
because by no possibility i:? there
anything '-in iL" for him. In olhor
words, according to these critics a
man should adjust his principles to
his best pecuniary advantage. He
is considered Quixotic and flying in
tho face of Providence if he holds
opinions differing from those of a
majority of his nelgnbors. Take
tho silver question, it is death
politically, for a candidate in tho
South to announce himself as being
in favor of the gold standnved and
this fact has caused many a good
man to laud on tho silver wave and
slide along with it rather lhan risk
defeat by the tenets of a lifetime.
And yet we doubt not a day Is com
ing when to say "free silver" to a
man will cause him to blush for
identifying himself with the crazo,
