7 i >g. An error made now cannot be |
remedied later. I have seen whole 1
fields of corn ruined by a bad chopper, j
This ;? work th%t should be done by !
. one who undentaods basiness. Much
depends upon the way the fertilizers
are applied. It should not be put too
y deep in the cold clay or unevenly
spread or chopped in wet places. Very
' tew men except those who witness
the putting in of seed and fertillzts
know to what extent carelessness
and neglect are practiced.
Is there any winder that tbe agri>
cultural interest is goiDg continually
down when the labor of tbe country is
yearly growing worse and worse? Indolence
and idleness predominate
strongly in tbe laboring class, and
strange to say some men cannot see tbe
, faults in their own farm3 and point
them out daily on the farms of others.

? every thirg, feed for the mules, etc.,
y and worked haDds for part of the

3 conduct of colored people.
} Mr. Editor: Quite recently I wit^
nessed thi3 incident: As my little
daughter and her companion were
going to school they were met by
several of the youngest pupils of^the
colored 8cnooi. j.nese cmiareuiwcmsu
9 a cordon across the sidewalk and
forced the two little girls into the
ditch amid jeers and laughter. I
heard them expressing cheerfully their
delight over their achievement.
' Again, and only a few days ago,
, several half grown negro girls meet
I ing one of my neighbors' *ons dell
liberately locked arms and s*id lOcidly
j enough to be plainly heard "let's pnsh
i him off the walk." The lad refusing
to submit to this indignity, charged
the line, and, with the help of two
/ ftmnflninns whri had scon the affair
1 from some distance, routed" he hoydens.
Now here is unmistakable evidence
^ of bad teaching and race antipathy.
* These childrea did these things b>
' cause, by somebody, they have beeu
* aught that it ia 3mart to commit rudeness
to white girls and boys, and that,
too, because they, are white. The
1 colored people are constantly complaining
of the "race antipathy" felt
^ oarftincf I'npm hv fhfi white t;. ? But
1 here is proof of the same f? < ?<g by
* even their little children; for do they
* ever visit upon their own race, with
tbe same ill will, such outrages?
Let it be understood once for all
1 that these things will not be tolerated.
* I let tbe offenders off this time, with a
strong admonition; next time I shall
" inflict nummary punishment.
Let oar colored friends follow the
1 wise connsel of Brooker T. Washing3
ton and Th-je. E. Miller and all will
3 be well. I appeal to the teachers and
5 parents of the colored children t? address
themselves to correcting in them
' the false idea of manners and morals
r indicated by the incidents above nare
rated. This community has been
a blessed in hiving an orderly and
l courteous colored population. I fcincerely

Mr. Editor: Since writing ray former
letter, I learn that every day negro
children in passing white children, and
* even young ladies, make rude and impertinent
remarks about them; tbe
words and manner showing plainly (
s that offena?, even insult, is in'ended.
Tbe worst, aud by far the greater
J number, of these offends are comf
mitted by balf-grown girls who put on
young lady airs ana yet t:\Ke tms re

* ladies. Bat negro bovs and even little .
' children amuse themselves in Ibis way.
k There is ample proof of these facts, :
t for few white children have escaped

' Sure'y it =8 too late in the nineteenth !

The farmers are greatly behind in
ibeir work owing;to the land being
too soft to plough. Grain has been
much injured by the severe winter,
Sotne of it has been planted over.
Very few have been able to do any
gardening yet The main diet just
no* of the Buck Lick folks is cow
peas and turnip sprouts.
Every family in our section has
been visited by la grippe. He is a
very unwelcome visitor, bat Dr. Scott
and seme of the neighbors have at
last succeeded in driving him away.
A splendid weapon need by one in the

one teaspoon cream of tartar dissolved

daring the Ifcanion, will be at Market
Hal, Meeting ana aiarKet etreetsi
Comrades will please register tbcrc
and during their stay make it their
general assembling piaee.
II. While the comrades of ihe Division
will be !.';C gae?ts of Cna!cs:on,
(aad iudeed of the people of the State
of Soatb Carolina), none the less the?
must play the part of hosts, and be
prepared to share their blankets, and
the contents of their haversacks and
cunteins with the visiting comradjs
from the other Divisions, and with all
Confederate Veterans who may join us
in commeimratiog the memories so
dear to as.
III. In order to take part in the proceedings
and have the. right to vole,
Camps must pay (heh dues of 10 cents
per capita to the U. 0. V. S., U. C V.,
New Orleans, La, or through the*
Div. Adj. Genl. Daes of5centsp:r
capita to the Division, to be paid to
the Div. Adj jGenl., (wi h arrears for
those Camps that hive not done their
part heretofore in sustaining the Division)
; all must b3 paid before ADril 1,
IV. Camps and comrades are urgod
to bring with them any Confederate
battle fUgs they may have, as-well a?
t;.Seij^ Camp colors for the parade,
especially as thcv will be wanted in the
ceremonial of Memoiial Day, May 10,
(the anniversary of Sionewall Jackson's
death), the day observed in this
city.- The Ladies' Memo ial Associ itien
having invited the U. C. V. Organization
lo j)in them^ancTGeneva!
Gordon having accepted the invitation
of the Association to preside.
V. Miss Mary Cartvile, of Edgefield,
daughter of Brigadier-Geueral T. W.
Carwile, commanding 2nd Brigade, is
announced as Division Sponsor for the
current year, and Mi?s Lula Casaels

Maids of Honor (for the Charleston
Reunion) will be Miss Minnie
Agatha Wright, of Gainesville, Texas,
and Miss Lnlie Wagoner, grandniece
of the late General John A. Wagener,
of Charleston. The c jmrades of the
Division are to be congratulated upon
having is Sponsor and Maids of Honor
four young ladies who mill worthily
represent names that appear upon the
honor roll of the Confederacy, and
they will vie with each other in honoring
them. To Miss Wright the thanks
of the comrades are dae for her modest
bat eff^dzve effort* to influence the
vote of the Texas delegation at Atlanta
in favor of ?Charleston, and her
a?ceptance of the Sponsor's invitation
to serve a? one of the Honorary Mai ls
of Honor, is another pleasing evidence
of her gracious cousideraii-jn for the
Confederate Veterans of our State.

VII Toe commanding general of
the division suggests, ihar as many of

It is estimated that during tin p.-is:
year over 4,000,000 to:uo:'cotton seeds k
were crashed, and ihat fr ?in them ^
products valued at uiore than $120,- f
000,000 were marketed. Only a few k
years ago the seed of tin cotton plant ^
was practically a was'e p:oluct. and ,
often a source of annoyauce, if not
acta tl expense to th? planter. Ti:a
growth of the cotton oil industry ' has

year there were shipped nearly 40,000,000
gallons of the oil to Europe, a
lar<^e increase over all previous years, ^
and it is confidently expected that the
exports of oil for the present year
will be very mucb greater. And whiie C
the field for the oil is being extended, J
new'uses f-T it are constantly found y
The markvt, therefore, is far from ?
being Inlly devj'f?;> -tJ.
In view of the=c lacts, says th^ Sa^auiiah
New?, it. is not bevon-.l ths
range of possibilities that in course of .'j
time?and it may not be soch a long
tim^, either?tin lint of the cotton
plant will become the by-product and
the seed tha chiel staple, fhere is ai
present a vezy wide margin between ~
the total valuo of the lint crop and the ?
3ee>i crop; but it must be borne in I
mind that while all the lint is harvested p
and marbe:ed, onlv a portion of the

of the u.l industry and its collaterals

rate of progress tint Ins been noted
3uring the pa^t ten years, the seed
crop might easily become the most
valuable product of the cotton plaDt.

Five or six years ago the principal!
mines in Colorado were known as
jilvtr uiinc^, though they also contained
gold. The extraction ot (he
iiivi-r waa the more profitable, hence
ih* main product ?.f the mines was
;iiat metal. When the price of silver T1
f^ll to a low fiju-e the owners of the
aind8 detoted their attention to gold
,s the maid prodact *nd silver as the
>y-prodact. Colorado is now prolacing
more gold than ever before in
ler history, i* _'-nt copper mine?
in Lake Micuigau were at first known
,s silver mines, until it was discovered
bat they could be made to produce
;opper at a better proSt than silver,
["hey are still, as a matter or tact, prolacing
both of the metals, bat silver

natter of cotton. We may discover
hat the seed is the most valaable part
>f the product, and raise the lint to
)ay the cost of growing the seed.

The pale, sallow, suDkeu-cheefctd,

Their kidneys are turning toap^rnip

They may also have indigestion, or

There was published in jester Jay's
panerja newsjtem from The Wilmington
Messenger, setting forth that on
Friday last tbe business men of thu
:ity through a committee of two gen- j
Piemen, paid over $t>yu to me several
negro lodges which owned The Becord
building which was burned oo the
LOth of November last, when the plant
if The Record wa? demolished. The
public knows all about (bis o?cnrrenee. J
fhat paper had made an infamous j
atterance and its office had to be ]
sacked. While this was io progress i
:he building caught fire and was con- j
sumed. It was claimed at the litne j
md has been claimed ever since that.
;he fire was accidental. We hive our j
loubts about that; it seema much j
aaore probable that the fire was de- j
iberately applied by some irresponsible
member of the mo b?some lightleaded,
hot-headed person, such a3
ilways attaches himself to a movement I
>f this character.
Bat however this may be, the poiat;
ipon ^hich we would fix public &t:ention
is this: that tbe just and fairninded
people of Wilmington have
voluntarily paid for the building
jnrned. As said above, the printing
>ffice had to be sacked; moreover, the ,
iditor of the paper bad to be driven
iway. These thing* were acts of
astice?stern jastice, it is tree, bat
ustice. Bat tbere was no purpose
o visit barm upon the innocent, and
s&AQ harm mm a tn .the proitprty of.
>rderly and unoffending uegroes,
hrongh no fault of tbe good men of
rVilinington, they "promptly, like tbe
ast and generous people they are,
loutributed the money and paid for it.
rhis proves that they do not/hatetbi
tegro, as sach, nor seek to punish him
oerely because he i3 black. The
nayor and chief of police whom they
an away were white; Manly, the
iditor, black. All were run off not
iccanse they were either black or
yhite; not, primarily, because they
