Further than that, you have no right

8 STATE PRESS COMMENT. 8
We recently enjoyed a delightful
ride to Laurens over one of the best
roads for automobiles in the country.
Midwinter as it was, we were enabled
to make a twenty-five mile ride in a
few minutes over an hotr. Laurens
has quite a number of interesting pub
119 'buildings. The best is the newly
improved county courthouse for try
ing people and sending them to jail;
then there is a magnificent graded
school building, worthy of a city of
ten times the population of Laurens.
Several of its churches are up-to-date
in finest architectural style and beau
tiful to look at. On our way back
home, and about four miles out of
Laurons, we passed another of our
county's public buildings. It was a
grpup of about 20 little cabins. This
constitutes the generous provision that
Laurens imakes for its poor. If the
Lord Jesus had been along lie would
have probably thought he made a mis
take when he said "the poor ye have
always with you" or else that the peo
ple of Laurens county "did not hear

It is curious that so mucl of the
comment, in Nu ;hern and Western
newspapers, on the iLever measure
for agricultural extension work, has
in-iiicated a lack of understanding of
the attitudes of the different sections
toward better agriculture. It is true
that agriculture in some parts of the
North is more progressive than in
the South. But the decadence of farm

particularly in New York and New
England, has been such as to make
very plain that other sections of the
country have their troubles in this re

no unjust imposition on the Federal
lovern:nent, it provides that every dol

this purpose shall be matehed by an

over, tihe muoney thus provided is to be
handled in each State, through the ag

tain ed, jointly by State and national
funds. No State will be able to draw
its allotment of the national money
until it shall have mamde provision for
its own share.
This plan will make available a fund
