Farming as a Business.
The Advertiser has no farmers on
its staff but we boliove that, if wo
should set ourselves to the task right,
we could farm successfully. This
sounds like a boast but we havo solid
reasons for making it. Wo mention
them because they may encourage oth
ers who may expect to farm.
We observe that from year to year,
tako the last ton years,?rains* fall on
the just and unjust, tho poor and the
rich, tho poor farm and the good farm
in about tho sumo proportions. We
observe that here and thero aro farmers,
some with a little land and some with a
big tract, who aro independent, who are
Saving a little monoy every year and
making their homos more valuable
and moro comfortable. A protty
good number of these farmers are
scattered over Laureps?at least ten
now to where was one twenty years
ago. Many of those well doing farm
ers have lands that were as poor and
sterile a* anybody 's when thoy bought
them. Often one sees a thriving farmer
and on an adjoining place a farmer
who is in debt and whose farm Is going
to ruin. The two get the same seasons
and have the same soil. Oue is a fail
ure and another is a success. Now we
lay it down that save in rare instances
where peculiar misfortune pursues a
man, ono farmer may succeed as, well
as another provided ho works as hard
and has the same brains. If Jones is
making a success of farming, thoro is
no excuse for .tho failure of Smith or
Brown. It will always be noticed
though that Jones' farm Is terraced,
that it is workod industriously, that
the forest land on it is prescrvod and
that the gullies aro tilled. If the
Browns and the Smiths and all the
rost will keep their lands terraced and
gullies tilled, if they will every year
like Jones mako their lands a little
richer than the yoar before, they too
will raise paying crops and grow rich
Perhaps some of you will laugh at us
for saying it but it is a fact that to-day
farming here in upper South Carolina
is about the safest business and the
surest in the world. We do not say
that a man will get rich quick farm
ing. But there is less risk, less specu
lation in it-and less reason to fail
than In any other business known. We
believe that moro people are succeed
ing in it than in any line of life. Of
course a man whosp homo, stock and
land represent an Investment of only
two thousand dollars, or half that, will
not accumulate a fortune or make
enough to live on like a prince, send
ing boys and girls to colleges. But he
will live better and have moro in the
end, provided he recognizes that four
won't go into throo and lives on what
he makes than the man with a two
thousand dollar store. Many poople
are born poor and stay poor. Every
body oan't be rich. But the farmer's
chance is tho best. If this does not
aeem true to any farmer, let him go to
Greenville or come to this town and
oount the men who have tried storo
keeping or law and other things and
have failed. Two thousand dollars a
year can't be made easily out of a two
thousand dollar farm but when the far
mer adds up what he gets, his house
rent, garden vegetables, chickens,eggs,
poultry, milk and water, (the town man
pays for water), fruits, melons and a
hundred other little' things that the
town man must buy or go without, he
v;ill find that the two thousand dollar
farm is yielding two or three times as
muoh as the same amount invested In
any business is yielding. The average
farmer in Laurons who is running a
three or four horse farm is getting far
more of tho comforts and luxuries of
life than the average man with a family
In a city on a fifteen hundred or two
thousand dollar salary. Every egg that
the city man oats costs at least two
eents; every pound of good butter,
thirty cents; and every fresh vegeta
ble, every peach, blackberry and apple
in proportion. Count tho butter and
oggs your famjly consumes In a week
and you may obtain an idea of what
you are gotting in money without
Of course the man who does not live
on what he makes, who cannot master
the proposition that four won't go in
to three,'will be unhappy and In debt
and uncomfortable but there aro more
of his sort comparatively In town than
in the country.
We expeot to say more on this line
hereafter, developing some of tho
thoughts we have hinted at. What we
have said may put somebody to think
To "Hie Old Antls."
The ADVEititTiSER takes it for
granted that four-fifths of the "Antis"
or former ??Antis" or "Conservatives"
have heads cool and clear enough. to
know that they cannot afford to "draw
the linos." Wo supposo that nineteen
twentieths of them aro wise enough to
know this. At tho same time, here
and thore may bo found a rare speci
men who will insist on voting only for
those who wero with him in polities
long, long ago.'
A word to these raro specimens.
You can't expeot all the forgetting and
forgiving to be done by the Reformers.
You oan't expect the privilege of vot
ing only for long ago Conservatives
and that the Reformers will "bust up"
for the sake of "peace and harmony"
eleoting your friends. Our crowd is
preaching this "Burled factionalism*'
and we've got to stand to tho n^qk and
apt it. Preaching one way a,nd voting
another won't go down and won't fool
anybody. Besides it isn't fair and
square and straight. In this county
the Be formers are aboift three to one
Conservative. * In past,years thoy have
dealt liberally with tho Conservatives.
They have elected several former Con
?eryatives to the legislature. They
have eleoted former Conservatives to
her office*. Some of these are
high office now by reason of
Keform support. It is your business to
reciprocate. True, a few Reformers
are "drawing the lines" but they are
not Laurens county. They are not ne
re ?arily S majority of OUr people. Out
of thirty-two candidates and most of
them Reformers, only two or three
have mentioned the old factional di
visions in their speeohes In this cam
paign. Nothing could be sillier than
for Conservatives to rear and pitch
about what these few are saying.
We know that it is only a very, very
few "Antls" that fall to take the sen
sible view that we have pointed out,
but, unhappily, they "blow off their
mouths" and create the impression
that they are "the Conservatives."
Couscquontly, and naturally, and ex
cusably, the Reformers take offence,
and some former Conservative who
wnnts a hi tie office "gets it in the
neck" on election day."
Could We Say Morel
Thk Advertiser has scrupulously
refrained from passing judgment on the
merits or demerits of Col. James II.
Tlllman but we venture tho unquali
fied opinion now that he is just as good
a man as the distinguished Senator
Tillman and tho lattcr's entirely worthy

LA.TIMER FOR U. H. SENATE.
Partial Record of What He Has Ac
The Third Congressional District,
and Anderson county in particular,
presents a candidate for the United
States Senate in the person of Con
gressman Latimor, who has special fit
ness for the place as shown by his past
record. And what is that record? A
poor boy loft by the fortunes of war
without the means of securing an edu
cation beyond that afforded by an old
field school, he started life with the
only legacy loft him?that of the plow
handles. He has tried tho field and
the furrow In all its varying phases,
and is and has been a successful farmer
and more thoroughly understands the
needs, and Is in more thorough sympa
thy with tho agricultural population
than any man in the field. And this
nob in antagonism to tho other varied
interests of tho State, but as lying at
the basis of all true prosperity, realiiz
ing that these Interests are corollaries
growing out of the agriculturists of
the State, and that as agriculture is
prosperous tho others will necessarily
share in it, and that no country and no
other interests can prospor when agri
culture is depressed.
Mr. Latimer has brought to the pub
lic service the same zeal and energy,
the same honesty and square dealing,
the same practical business sense that
has guided through life in his private
business, and that he has made a suc
cess of It. Look at tho record of his
ten years in congress in results brought
to t he -people, of the Third district. It
is not exaggeration to say that he has
secured more in ten years than all the
other congressmen who have repre
sented the district since the war, and
this is not said to disparage thorn, but
as a simple* statement of truth. He
went into congress a new and untried
man, fresh from the fields, sent there
by the farmers, inexperienced in legis
lation and not skilled in the graces of
oratory, and it was not long until the
farmer-repro-ontatlve had something
tangible to show. The railroads in the
State in the hands of receivers in tho
Federal courts had for years failed to
pay their taxes due the State,and he at
once set in motion the necessary legal
machinery to make them pay their
taxes just as tho farmers have to do
He came to tho relief of the State, and
it Is within tho khowledgo of all how
the sboriffs of come of the counties
wero imprisoned to collect these back
taxes. But he was at length successful
and the railroads were made to pay
$208,000 into the State treasury.Soon af
ter his entrance into congress he took up
i the matter of securing tho claim of New
berry College for fifteen thousand
dollars for injury to their build
ing by Mio occupancy of the Fed
eral troops. This bill had been pending
for years, and its friends had almost
despaired of ever getting it passed,
but Latimor succeeded where others
had failed, and the college got the
money. Ho has been instrumental in
increasing the number of seed pack
ages from 3,000 to 15,000 in'eaoh dis
trict, and thousands of farmers to-day
testify that the seeds are tho best they
ever had, and thousands upon thou
sands of farm bulletins are distributed
giving the results of the work of the
But passing over some other matters
tho greatest good that he has secured to
the people of this district is the estab
lishment of the rural free delivery of the
mails to the homos of the people.He has
never claimed to be the originator of
tho system, but only to bo one of the
first men to perceive the great benefit
there is in it and to give it a praotical
application, and to-day there are 00
routes in operation in this district at a
salary of $000 per carrier1, bringing 951,
000 annually into the district and con
ferring vastly improved mail facilities
upon the people.
He has Introduced a bill, which is
now pending, providing*for 1,500,000
acres of tho public domain to be set
apart for the public schools of South
Carolina. He has now a corps of sur
veyors in tho State Instructed by the
agricultural department to make a soil
survey of 1,000 square miles of terri
tory to ascertain the constituent ele
ments of the soil with reference to its
adaptability to the prod net ion of orops.
He has also introduced an amendment
to the agricultural bill appropriating
$100,000 for experiments in road mak
ing. These matters are referred to

About tbcso races. For tho Sonate,
in The Advertiser's judgment the
raco in this county is between Evans,
Johnstono anjd Latimcr. Elliott, Hemp*
hill and Heodorson will all get votes.
Col. FJllott is now recognized as a big
factor in the raco throughout the stuto.
His friends are conlidont that he will
b?> in the second race. Naturally ho
lias made a splendid impression. ' 1 Le
was a gallant soldior of tho Confederacy
and tho Old Confeds all know it. He
has dono noble service for the state in
Congress. In the Black District for
ten long years it was William Elliott
who kept the white man's banner aloft
and William Elliott who saved and
made possible White Supremacy In the
only part of tho stato where it was in
peril. One reason why Col. Elliott was
sent to congress was that he was the
only man in his district and thorefore
tho only man in tho stato who could
keep the negro out. Tho people appear
to understand what Klliott has done
for Carolina and white Carolinians?
hence ho counts largo in tho running
The Advertiser received the fol
lowing telegram from Columbia last
"Columbia. S. 0., Aug. lOtb. Elliott
has advanced wonderfully. Is rapidly
making gains from other candidates
and Is always placed with some other
man as certain of tho second race. The
low country is solid for him. ho tear's
in the middle counties and If his large
galne continue, may get largest vote In
the Piedmont and Peedoe sections."
For railroad commissioner the raco
is between Mobley and somebody else
and there's no bettor man running than
Walker and. Jones aro the candidates
for comptroller In these parts.
Concerning adjutant and inspector
general, an old Confcd like Jack Boyd
of Greenville is good enough for The
Advertiser. Boyd has had one hun
dred times as much real military ex
perience as all the rest together. So
far as this job is concerned the young
'uns should wait.
Talbert will carry Laurens for gover
nor. Ansel and Heyward wi'l get good
votes. Peoplo aro betting money ou
Jim Tillman. The Advertiser is
not a Jim Tillman paper but it is not
having spasms about him. The people
do not always appreciate a good man.
Timmcrinan is a Reformer, a gentle
man, a farmer, a Christian and a sue
cess?but tho pcop'c don't want him
For tho legislature The Advertiser
supports the three men furthest from
belonging to anybody. Who they arc?
that's our secret.
?It is Ben Tillman's declared policy In

Antl or Tillmunite that draws tnein

All signs point to a victory for Gun

In tho canvass now about to closo in

decided by tho people is that of personal
litnoss. Who of the six, aspiring to
this position, is most capable of repre
senting South Carolina in tho United
States Senate with credit to himself
and honor to his State?
? There Is no doubt that since tho can
vass began, Ceorge Johnstone, of New
berry, has gained remarkable strength
and mado most favorable impressions
on tho voters. In fact, it is conceded
that of all the candidates ho has galnod
most, this being admitted on all sides.
It may be well to inquire Into tho
record and to study something of the
life of this man, who by sheer force

George Johnstone is a son of tho late
Chancellor Job Johnstono, whose opin
ions rank In lltora'y ability and legal
erudition with those of the greatest
chancellors aud judges tho Stato has
ever produced. Tho son has inherited
in great measure tho intellect of the
father and that intellect has had the
advantage of thorough training In the
best schools of this country and Eu
In 1877 he was elected to the Legis

In 1H00 ho was eleoted to congross
from the Third District. Ho was chair
man of the committee on Privileges and
Elections, from which Mr. Crisp was
elected speaker, and Mr. Johnstone
was one to whom Mr. Crisp looked
constantly for assistance.
No man can show a cleaner record.
Few can show a more remarkable re
cord. No man has sought more to do
what ho could In tho Interest of und for
the welfare of his people. In times
like these there is a demand for men,
not tlmo servers; statesmon, not politi
cians- There aro momentous questions
to be settled, and above all do wo
need men who are ablo to grapple with
these questions in the National Con
gross, and do so intelligently and with
a wisdom and foresight born of the
statesmon. Tho people of the State
are now In tho enjoyment of their so
ber judgment, they are not torn by
party strife and factional feeling. The
appeal is made In this sober judgment
in tho solection they will bo called up
on to make for the highest ofllce in
their gift. It is thoir duty to measuro
up the candidates by tho standard
which every true Carolinian should sot
for such a position; character, fitness,
intellect, ability to stand up shoulder
to shoulder, arm to arm, hand to hand,
intellect to intellect, with any member
of that body.
The frlonds of Col. Johnstone have
never considered him a politician, and
do not now press his claims on that
ground, but rather as a broadmlndcd
statesman who is able to grapple with
tho questions of the day and meet tho
issues and solve them intelligently;
one who has always stood for the poo
plo's Interests and those principles ho
believed to be right and just, though
