A serious problem had been thrust upon the Federal authorities by the military occupation of the Sea Tmlandn. The plan tation owners had departed so hastily for Charleston and Savannah on the ap pearance of the Federals In November, lfO. that they had been unable to take with them their slaves. No sooner was it generally known In the North that large numbers of slaves had been "abandoned" by their owners In the Sea Islands then various philan thropic societies took up the question of ' -what should be done with them. This was the first grappling with the problem of caring for the freed negro and making him self-supporting, a task that was to prove but a light prelude to a painful chapter ot reconstruction In the Southern States, when the absent plantation owner should return, disarmed and impoverished, to find his lands in the possession of his former slaves. riam to Care Xer Blacks. Although low and sandy, with a coarse noil not adapted to the culture of varied crops, the Sea Islands produced much of the -world's finest cotton. The island district, of which Beaufort was the chief town, lying between Charleston and Savannah, was cut up with many bayous and inlets of the sea, and the salt air had a peculiarly bene ficial effect upon the fiber of the plant. From the day of their occupation of this district the Federals had never lost sight of the value of this crop. "With more than 30.000 soldiers in the dis trict It was easy for them to hold the Sea Islands without fear of Interruption from the enemy. For these reasons the prcblem of tha freed negro there de v eloped much more sharply, and at an earlier date, than In any other part of tlft South. Northern men and women who had fought with tongue and pen for the abolition ot slavery felt a special ap peal to their philanthropy in the situa tion of the negroes of the Sea Islands. President Lincoln was early impor tuned to send a special Government agent to the Islands to care for the negroes there. The person chosen for the mis sion was Edward L. Pierce, of Massa chusetts. The plan of making the negroes wards of the North appealed to the Secretary of the Treasury. Salmon P. Chase, who. being anxious to conserve to the Federal Government the great resources of the Sea Islands in cotton, indorsed it and recommended it to President Lincoln. The Emancipation Proclamation was still months off. and Lincoln, whose mind at the moment was harassed with the private sorrow of the loss of one of his sons, showed a disinclination to take up the question when It was put before him, saying somewhat Impatiently to Mr. Pierce that he ought not be troubled with such details: "that there seemed to be an itching to get negroes Into our lines. Lincoln, howoer, gave Mr. Pierce a note asking the Secretary ot the Treas ury to give him-"such Instructions as may be Judicious" with regard to the Port Kojai contrabands." With this authority the special agent had gone to Fort Royal in March, ISC, to begin, eleven months in advance of the I Proclamation of Emancipation, the cardJ of thousands of freed negroes. It was early found that Congress was not Inclined to make any appropriation for the Port Royal en lure and three societies, the Educational Commission, organized in Boston; the Freedmen's Re lief Association, of New Tork, and the Port Royal Relief Committee at Phila delphia, volunteered to pay the salaries of the teachers of plantation superin tendents.

Early in the spring Mr. Pierce had found that the plantations were stripped of able-bodied men by order of Mai. Gen. David Hunter, commanding the military department, who wanted them to bear arms. Later there was an epidemic of smallpox. These difficulties notwithstanding about S.000 acres of corn and forty-five acres ot cotton were planted on 1S9 plantations, on which were 9,0SO people, of whom 4.C3 were field hinds. - The second season's crop that of 1863 was larger. The negroes, under the intelligent care of the superintendents and the constant ministrations of North ern school teachers and preachers, were mentally better "equipped to labor with effect. On July 1. ISC affairs at Port Royal had been transferred from the Treasury to the War Department, removing the difficulty of impressment into military service of field hands and bringing the charge Of the freedmen into the hands of Brig. Gen. Rufus Saxton. or Massa chusetts, who was in sympathy by train ing and temperament with the object in Eand. It was estimated that 18.000 negroes thus came under the control of onetFed eral officer. The problems before Gen. Saxton were aried. The teachers, ot whom there were forty-five, in thirty schools, with 2,000 pupils, nearly all under twelve years of age. bore ardent testimony to the quickness of perception among the young blacks. The older negroes were less responsive. The former slave at first was at a loss to understand his new position. Two years of freedom had given him grad ually widening views. Land had been rented to him on very favorable terms and the proposal to sell land In small sections, and to put up cabins for the occupancy of the blacks, had developed from the philanthropic plana of the pro moters of the enterprise almost as a mat ter of course. The spirit of both blacks and whites toward the end of 1S63 was optimistic. Gen. Saxton decreed for Thanksgiving a general nouaay, ana ordered that on each plantation an ox should be roast ed and served free to the negroes. Speculators Get Land. The tax sales of the plantations, the process which was to- strip the owners of the land In their absence of the last of the substance they had staked upon the Confederacy, did not result as its promot ers planned. The buyers of forty-seven of the plantations were negroes, but conflicting orders from Washington re sulted In much fine land passing into the hands of Northern speculators. Land was sold' to the negroes at a uniform rate of $LS an acre in lots of from ten to forty acres, but some of the best plantations were sold at auction and were bought by white men from the North. In truth the sales of the plantations were not without much contusion of opin ion and authority, and before they were accomplished the price of Sea Island land had jumped to $15 and CO an acre. A it was all sold under reservation ot the absent owner's right to redeem his title by process of law within a given num ber of years, the proceedings laid, the foundation for much heart-burning and many bitter law suits after the war. ' In these "the blacks would not fare as well as the whites. Education did much for the freed men of the Sea Islands, but as time went on the teachers were tovlabor at a growing disadvantage. The partisans of the slave tired in time of being a patron to the freed man. The sale of the Sea Island lands was a prelude to an attempt at early en franchisement of the negroes in that sec tion. On April 17, 1864, a convention was called at Beaufort to elect delegates from South Carolina; "without distinction ot color, to a national convention at Bal timore. This was attended by about ISO colored men and perhaps 100 'whites. It elected twelve whites andfour colored delegates.' none of whom was allowed to vote in the Baltimore convention, which nominated Lincoln for the Presidency.

J10.W LITTLE TIPS FOR THE DRESSMAKER Care Is Essential to the Success of the Woman Who Makes Her Own Clothes. Care Is the first essential for the woman who undertakes her dressmak ing for the first time. It looks easy enough to the novice to cut out patterns, for instance, and yet there is nothing more difficult than to do so correctly, for It really depends upon' the way the pattern is cut how much material may be required. A careful dressmaker may get a whole gown out of three yards of material, where the novice, through reckless cutting, would require at least five. The first thing, therefore, is to study your pattern and plan how you may cut your goods to the best advantage. It it Is your first pattern. It is better to cut It a little larger than a little smaller, because the first fault may be remedied with little trouble, where sometimes the latter mistake Is im possible ot correction. Be sure that you hae a large pair ot scissors, and that they are sharp. It is worth while having them sharp ened especially, een if they do not seem to require it, for If they are not keen they will catch and tear the goods. You will save a great deal of time by having all the necessary Imple ments, such as pins, tape measure. silk and sewing cotton, it. on hand. Nothing is more irritating than to una yourself short at the last minute. It you are going to do much sewing It is well to get staple colors by the dozen spools. Have Plenty of Needles, Be sure to have plenty of machine needles. They have an Irritating habit of breaking at the most unex pected times, especially when you are using heavy goods. Be sure. too. that you understand how to run the machines you are to use. A great deal depenas upon mis mom than a novleo at the art realizes. A few lessons from some experienced nersona will ave much time ana per haps many disheartening failures. Remember that tho oest ares3me believe In basting everything nrst.
