Tho Farming Problem.
A peculiar manifestation of the times
is that several men of intelligence have
seriously advised farmers to burn cot
ton in orde/* to elovato the price. The
proposition is too absurd to discuss. It
Is to bo booed that in nn individual
case will any cotton be burned. Of
courso it tcoms insanity to liuaglue
that any Urge number of farmers could
bo prevailed upon to destroy cotton
and unless a million or so ba!o3 wore
destroyed tho price would not be af
feotcd. The only danger is that some
weak men may bo led astray here and
thoro by these honest but most de
Wc do not advise farnn-rs to reduce
tho acreage in cotton next year. We
do advise them to plant more corn and
6tnaT grain and provender crops every
year. We urge now as wo have always
urged that the farmers produce all
they consume?so far as It oan be pro
duced in this climate and on this soil.
When tho Southern fa-mers act on
this principle the cotton acreage wil
necessarily be reduced. Io other words,
the present proportion of cot'on ncre
age on the average farm Is such that
other crops cannot be cultivated as
they should be.
It Is not true that the Southern
farmer can produce cotton acd I uy
Western grain cheaper than he can
raise it even though cotton bring 10 or
1? cents tho pound. Here Is tho rea
son. Suppose a femur plant nothing
but cotton. His hands and his s'oek
will bo very busy at certain times. Ex
cept when the cotton fields demand
hoeing, plowing or picking Ills hands
and stock will be idle. Every minute
that his hands, his stock and himself
arc idlo brings loss, just as that cotton
mill on the hill yonuer is 1. sing money
every minute that its machinery is not
running. Corn cultivated at times
when cotton cannot bo cultivated is
therefore all profit?every bushel of it.
Consequently, the problem to the
farmer, just as it is to the manufactu
rer or met chant, is to keep his labor
and plant busy all the time. He should
produce cotton as his money crop but
ho should not lot it bo a "top-heavy"
crop. He should map out a plan that
wonld permit him to produce cotton
but his cotton fields should not be so
largo that he wou'd be required to
neglect his corn, pea, barley, alfalfa
and pindar fields when they called for
a little attention. The man who has
brains enough to make his farm an
"all round" farm, producing many
things and keeping his hands and his
mules at work on all working days is
the man who is going to own this
country. Such men alivady own most
Wo have pointed out a hundred
times that this country affords a mar
ket for beef, mutton, poultry, vegeta
bles, grains of all kind?, fruit, oggs
milk and butter and a hundred other
things, all of which can be produced
easily hore in Laurens. One may cal
culate that corn may bo produced at 15
cents the bushel in Iowa and that it
costs HO cents the bushel here and that
thcreforo ho cannot compete with the
Iowa man. That Is plausible. But if
the man hore has the land and the
idlo land and mules to produce corn,
that corn cists him nothing whatever
The Iowa farmer cannot sell corn in
competition with him.
So the way to reeluco the cotton acre
ugo is to increase the acreage in other
crops that uro equally as valuable as
cotton whon a loss of time and stoppage
of work would follow from not produc
It is foolish and wrong to advise the
reduction of tho acroage in cotton If
that reduction is to involve an increase
in id oness.
Beyond Ills Krach.
Wo observe that a number of our
contemporaries are reprinting an arti
cle from a cheap magazine in which
the discovery is announced that Ken
Ti.lman has a ' gentler aide."
Our recollection is that this was the
first sido of Tillman's nature that be
came known in these parts. Fourteen
years ago this fellow began to slander
people in a disorderly manner. Two or
throe or four gentlemen at dlfforent
times "called him down" and Benja
min ''came down" as quietly as any
lemb. After that high-minded men
who had regard for their reputations
for personal courage coased to consider
that the outpouring of calumnies from
Ben Tillman's mouth wero worthy of
notico in which they were right. Nioan
while, with all his advancement and
national cotorict/, to which tho pos
Fo-sioncf considerable la'ent entitles
him,Tillman has never been able to
enru tho rospect of thoss South Caro
linians who m:asuro do'.Icately ques
tions of private honor and which he
los* by his indulgence in blackguard
ism. Wo inspect tiiat Tillman would
joyfully resign his place in the Sonate
today and "throw away ambition" If
by to doing ho could obtain in icturo
u placo in tho ostoem of South Caro
linians such as the late General Hump
ton or Judge Simpson bold. Of course
there are many good men who like
Tillman and admire him and yet there
are feme thousands who treat him po
litely and feel for blm only contempt.
Wc all know that Senator Tillman
?'loves flowers" acd we know that his
domestic nnd fami'y life are wholly
"""^genator Tillman is not a coward. It

dentally. Had he fought all the men
whom he wantonly insulted in 1800 and
who resented the insults he would
have been killed 100 times or els?
would have oonverled a good-sized
plantation into a private grave-yard.
We have never thought that tho Sena
tor had less courage than tho average
healthy nun?or more. Of course,
when ho abused gentlemen and ro
tated to "make good" it cost him the
respect of a great many gentlemen.
Fifteen years ago, when ho was an oh
some politician and ndventurer ho did
not care for the opinion of the men
allied with what he called the "ring
rule" crowd but now, when he has had
for years, the State's highest political
honors, there are signs that ho hun
gers with a quenchless thirst for the
rewards that belong to all thoso who
bear themselves with gentle dignity
and courtosy and speak with a clean
tongue only the simplo truth.
In the naturo of things theso will he
denied him even though larger politi
cal preferment come to him.
Vices of the Sexes.
Why doos woman reform man so much
moro than ho reoiprocatoJ1? Even if
she leads no axe crusades against sa
loons, sho is preoccupiod with keeping
him from drink, and her checks upon
his flagrant tendency to vice are of in
estimable valuo in the long-drawn-out
business of differentiating humanity
favorably from his arboreal cousins of
the jungle. Woman's opinion and pro
test are powerful against all the male's
favorite vices, and also aga'ust his
mero brutalities. Who has not ob
served a woman s'opplng two b^ys
from Oghting on the street, when they
wished to tight, and all tho surround

or to the elaborato alarm with which
his women friends view domestic cows
and mice. Ho pays for the sweet con
coctions with which females destroy
their teeth and interior machinery at
most other times as well as at mati
A CONTINUAL STRAIN.
Many men and women are constantly
subjected to what they commonly term
"a continual st*ain" because of some
financial or family trouble. It wears
and distresses thorn both mentally and
fihysleally, affecting thoir nerves bad
y and bringing on liver and kidney
ailments, with the attendant evi's of
constipation, loss of appetite, sleepless
ness, low vitalltv and despondency
They cannot, as a rule, get rid of this
"continual strain," but they can reme
dy its health destroying effects by tuk

Flower, ft tones up tho liver, stimu

caused by that "continual strain."

Rev. and Mrs J. W. Humbert.
The Nowberry Herald and News last
Friday contained the following an
nouncement which is of special interest
to Laurens where Rev. snd Mrs. Hum
bert are so well known, tho former be
ing a native of the county:
Tho Rev. and Mrs. J. W. Humbert

and their decision Is welcomed by
many friends here. Mr. Humbert has
boon a member of tho South Carolina
conference for foitylivo year.*, during
which time ho haj scrv3d congregations
In every part of the state. Ho has
never missed a roll-cr.ll at a meeting of
j the general or district conference. Mr.
Humbert has met with marked success
throughout in his ministerial work.
Mrs. Humbert is a member of the
Woman's Foreign Missionary society,
which was organized in Newberry
In 1878. At that meeting sho was
elected corresponding secretary of thai
body, a position which she has Wied
continuously over since, ami sho will
continue to work in that capacity. Mrs.
Humbert is a daughtor of tho late Gen
eral U. H. Klnard, of Newborry.
Mr. Humbert takes the superannu
ated relation to the confererce, and if
ho improves in health will likoly join
tbo conference in another year or so.

Class Livery, Feed and Sale Stable.

Since the Cotton
Season Started 3?T
we have been unloading on an average of
one car FLOUR per week last week we
unloaded two cars of 1st and 2nd patent.
That Means Something!!
We have never learned the candidate's
hearty handshake, nor do we pretend to
love the "dear people" so much - but we
do claim that our methods are saving the
farmers money, and making some for
oursleves. Get our prices, and see quality
of our goods.
