If I mistake not, I notie(l in Your
valuable paper of last week, where our
worthy and eflicient county supervisor
had rented a large farm rioi one or

petition with our onq horse farmers,
in raisIng a grain crop. That will en
able the man with his broad acres to
pilant. is usual crop or cotton. Now,
in all fairness to Mr. Humbert, does ho
think that this is right? And does the
commonwealth of Laurens county
think it right, at this period when.
we, the one horso farmers are pro-.
hibited by the lawvs of our stat~e front
planting but one-third of our usual
cotton acreage. Such as tis wil los..
sen the demand for our gra crop.
