Lisbon People Suffer Annoyance. Crop
News. Political Views and Local
Person Items of Interest.
Lisbon, S. C, July 25. -We farmers
arc trying to got through with one of
the most expensive crops we have ever
tried to make; however, if all the crops
(we mean cot ton) are off as ?mich to
compare with the crop of 1906, we
perhaps will realize more for the com/
ing crop than we did last year. When
the farmers make a good crop every
body seems to be happy and the world
moves along so much better.
We bad the pleasure of attending the
senatorial meeting at your city yester
day and enjoyed all their speeches very
much. Either one of them will make
us a good representative in the Upper

day to commence, that they may give
their views along lines that will interest

man and listen to his views which he
expects to propound, and vote for the
men who will give us the best services
regardless of our friends. Wo are glad
to see that, the people are losing sight
of one thing, and that is this: "We are
going to vote for so and so, because he
is on my band wagon." This county as
well as many others, needs the very
best material that we can obtain from
the coroner to the president of these
We are glad to have the pleasure of
voting whiskey or no whiskey in this

that God is going to take a band in
helping to put down whiskey,the worst
thing that ever invaded our country.
Mr. Editor, you ought to have been
along Long street, in this community,
one night this week to have heard a
wagon load of men they might have
been negroes, but we hardly think so.
Now, Mr. Editor, don't you see at a
glance how much we country people
tire subjeclcd to these outrages by both
white and black.' It suits some of your
town peoplo to say the dispensary is

use them anil they have done her more
good than all of the medicine I bought

F.VOLUIIUN OF THE FARMER.
Capt. Hetty Writes oi Changes in Farm?
Spartanburg, s. c. The farmer
has been at school for the last two de
cades. He gets valuable lessons from
best papers and institutes, but bis best
teacher has been experience. This pro
cess of education has been very slow,
and we know none who are ready to
graduato and declare, after the manner
of college boys, that they know it all.
When one looks backward and considers
how unwisely and indiscriminately they
bought fertilizers about thirty years
ago, and bow little they knew about
plant food and the soil (dements, it is
wonderful that they pulled through.
A few of them felt the need of organi
zation, and the first thing they joined
was the Grange. That was not popular
and few farmers joined it. Tim object
was to educate the farmer. Politics
were avoided. Next came tin? Farmers'
Alliance in tin; 80*8. That was a secret
organization, and none except farmers
were admitted. Two qualifications were
necessary for membership. The appli
cant must I).- a farmer pure and simple,
and in the second place he had to con
sider bankers and merchants and till
middlemen as their enemies. They pro
posed to run stores, buy at wholesale
.and live without the aid of all outsiders.
They soon went down with a crash, and
there does not seem enough of them left
to claim that $17,000 in a Columbia
Even in that si hool they learned many
lessons. Af tor that they began to think
a little for themselves. They studied
the elements of plant food. They
learned how to apply fertilizers. They
also began to study chemistry without
calling it by that name. They quit
quarreling with merchants, bankers and
cotton buyers. While in that frame of
mind the Cotton Association came into
existence. They understood that it
differed from the old Alliance principles.
There were no secret meetings. They
had no enemies to punish. They did
not contemplate the establishment of
stores and hanks. The fact is they
were taught that all honest business
men were friends of the farmer.
Thus the teaching of the Cotton As
sociation moved the intelligent farmers
forward in the rightdirection. It caused
abuses and dishonest methods in the
agricultural department at Washington
to be corrected. It called the attention
of gamblers in cotton factors to the
fact that they were nothing but gam
blers. It set spinners in this country
and Europe to thinking along different
lines from what they had been accus
tomed to do. Then came the Farmers*
Union, a secret organization, but ap
parently working to accomplish the
sann" results aimed at by the Cotton
One excellent result of all these years
of schooling is that the farmers have
been gaining much knowledge relating
to their business. They are learning
how to improve the soil and make larger
yields with less labor. Wonderful im
provements have been made in the last
decade in making the farms better and
the homes more comfortable. Hut the
best result is that class hatred has been
eliminated from the farmers' thought
and talk. They understand that bank
ers, merchants, cotton buyers and pro
fessional men are their friends. They
have no enemies now except gamblers
in cotton and grain who seek to make
money by dishonest methods. They
will not give up the fight until gambling
exchanges are removed and honest
methods prevail in the sale and pur
chase of farm products. The farmer
has certainly been at school, and while
he has been a slow, bluntering scholar,
he has learned many things, and he will
acquire much more knowledge in the
future. News and Courier.

Following is an interesting letter on
tarm demonstration work:
Marshall, Texas, Oct. 10, 1907.
Dr. S. A. Knapp, Farmers' Co-opera
tive Demonstration Work, Lake
Dear Sir: We, the undersigned com
mittee for Harrison county, Texas,
make the following report on Farmers'
Co-operative Demonstration Work done
the past season in this county:
On account of the ravages of the boll
weevil Harrison county, Texas, was
threatened with a disaster in the loss of
the cotton crop that would effect every
material interest in the county. The
loss of money was not the sole consid
eration. Our tenants and farm labor
ers would, to a large degree, leave the
county and woidd thus permanently in
jure our commonwealth. In this emer
gency we appealed to the United States
Department of Agriculture through you
for advice and aid and you came to our
county and organized the work in Feb
ruary, 1907, under an arrangement by
which the Department of Agriculture
would furnish the superintendents atid
the people of this county would raise
enough funds to buy improved seetl for
the demonstration farms. The citizens
of tiic county promptly raised and de
posited in bank $1,000 and later con
tributed $700 more, making a total of
$1,700 invested in better seed. All
agreements between the Department
<>f Agriculture and the people were
promptly and satisfactorily carried out.
Almost without exception this was the
worst season this.section has ever known
for producing cotton, but without reser
vation we wish to make the following
First. The results of the demonstra
tion work have been in the highest de
gree satisfactory to our people.
Second. Our people are unanimous in
asking for its continuance and would
regard the discontinuance of the work
as an untold disaster.
Third. Among the many good things
accomplished we enumerate the follow
(a) It established over 300 demon
stration farms scattered over the entire
(b) It taught better culture and in
troduced better seed. These two items
alone were worth more than $100,000
this year to our county in acttial cash
to say nothing of further benefits. The
improvement was so apparent that the
observing traveler on the highways
could pick out every demonstration field.
(c) This demonstration work saved a
stampede of tenant farmers and labor
ers from the farms.
(d) It gave confidence to the mer
chants and bankers that a crop would
be made and thus promoted credit.
(e) It demonstrated to the farmers
that a crop of cotton could be mado nn
der extremely adverse conditions of
weather ami insect posts, and they en
