Problems Confronting the Unton.
We want to get in touch with
every farmer, and study each
other's needs, financially and
politically, and all work together
to .one purpose-for the, better
ment of the agricultural inter
ests of this great country of ours,
carefully weighing and investi
gating the different problems
will have on the said interests,

sition.it is our duty to- look

Decting any ponsideration of our
interests from them, as they are
too actively engaged in the skin
ning business on their own ad
count. While we are toiling on
producing a living for and the
wealth of the nation, they are
meandering around planning
how to get the lion's share of
the profits of the toiler's labor.
One of the sickening sights to
be seen at times is a farmer who
-will show himself so igno, ant - s
to be taken in by one of these
oily-tongued fellows and gulp
down a fine tale of conditions,
.of the crops, of the markets,
and hiw the farmer ought or

be, and he would do, so much

The Man Behind the Plow.
There's been a lot to say about
the man behind the gun,
And folks have praised him high

He won a lot of honor for the
land where men are free

There's somethin' sort 'o' thrillin'
in a flag that's wavin' high,
And it makes you -want to holler
wvhen the boys go marchiff' by.
Buait when the shoutin's over and
the fightin's done,.somehow
We find we're still dependin' on
the man behind the plow.
They sing about the glories of
the man behind the gun,
And the books are full of stories
of the wonders he has done;
The world has been made over
by the fearless ones who fight;
Lands that used to be in dark
ness they have opened to the
When God's children snarl the
soldier has to settle up the row,
An' folks haven't time for think

In all the pomp and splendor of
an army on parade,
And through all the awful dark
ness that thq smoke of battles
In the halls where juwels glitter
and where shoutin' men de-,

In the palaces where rulers deal
out honors to the great,
There's not a single person who'd
be doin' bizness now.
Or have medals if it wasn't for
the man behind the plow.
We're buildin' mighty cities and
we're gainin' lofty heights;
We're winnin' loti of glory and
we're settin' things to rights;
We're show in' all creation how
the world's affairs should run;
Future men'll gaze in wonder at

And they'll overlook the feller,
just the same as we do now,
wV ho's the whole conc .rn's foun
dation-that's the man behind
the plow. -S. E. Kiser.
As we have just finished read
inv the contents of the last issue
of t ie,.-J., and as'it is so much
like getting a letter from' some
dear friend or relative, we de
cided to pencil a few thoughts
to its next "make-up."
We got out of sorts last week
and used some words we would
not use before the editor, unless
we could run, because we never
received the S.-J. last week, but
when we received this week's
issue and noted the cause, we
were like a child that had re
ceived a good case of "Captain
Green's grandson"-shed a few
tears, pouted a little, and all the
trouble was over.

most of the time on Monday.
Now, Mr. Editor, we are not

Of course "Uncle Zeke" is not

that "tar-heel" paper.

What Can be Done in This State.
Speaking of the efforts of the

stimulate interest in live stock
raising in South Carolina, Hon.
E. W. Dabbs, of Goodwill, Sum

eight 'years ago his little boy had
been made a present of a pair of

$200 worth of wool.and six had
been killed for mutton. In addi

had been made.
The value of cattle raising;

by Mr. Dabbs, too. In Aiddition'
to the receipts for beef and hides, 2
Mr. Dabbs asserts that from,(
