Mimi who lisive Succeeded?Y. C. J. His
Views and Methods oil His j
Farm.
The subject of this short sketch, familiarly
known unions his neighbors and
friends as "Jack," resides about four
miles east of (ireemvood. on an old set-1
tied place well scarred with gullies and
galled noles, and regarded as worn out
long before the war. After a term of
faithful service as a Confederate soldier, I
in which he lost a leg amputated close to'
the hip joint, he returned to his home, j
when, to all human appearance, liisfu-;
tine prospects were forever blasted ; no !
money, his slaves liberated, his possjs-j
sion in a state of decay from neglect auu '
his body mutilated in such a way that
ordinary mortals would have given over1
in despair. Summoning to his aid, how- j
ever, all the resources of which he was1
^ppable, both intellectual and material,'
lie began work as best he knew how.'
The situation was a novel and perploxing
one; ho could not woik hims.-lf and he i
was unaccustomed to frco labor: It was
something of which he had as little expeonce
as the laborer had of freedom, and j,
henee it was natural that they should, atj.
times, differ in their notions of things;!
whence the question would arise with
him, who shall decide when doctors dif- ,
fers ? This uninviting state of affairsj
made a deep impression on him, and with ;
his practical turn of mind he began to (
work out a solution of the ililliculty!.
^ which ho saw was likely to recur at any (
moment, and must be definitely removed.
For the time being, he utilized thej,
situation as best ho could. He knew!
ho*' to raise cotton as he had been accus- j
tomcd to do, and did not know that mon- j
ey could be obtained in any other way i
on the farm. In fact, the prices which j
obtained just after tho war made cotton-1 j
growing a profitable business, and fully .
justified the a'most exclusive attention i
given, notwithstanding the heavy ex- j
pen.se attending its production. In this t
way our friend continued his operations, L
keeping a close and acccurate calculation 1
of ea.:h yeai's receipts and expenditures, ^
until the price declined to sucii extent as t
to leave no profit to tho producer. This j
decline was, to the cotton grower a "ble-s- j j
ir.gin disguise." as paradoxical as it may t
appear. Tho heavy decline in the great t
staple to which every one was devoting
attention, unlike its effect on the mass of
11
farmers, arrested the operations of our
friend; he saw no money in it; tho situa- \
tion became perplexing; his occupation j
was gone. The bonanza which had pre-.
sonted itself in tho ^ape of cotton at 20'
to 3o cent.? per pound, had become cx- {
hausted, and ante-bellum prices of S to 10;
cents was the best that could be had.1
s
Tho question arose with him as to what:
was best to be done, lie was enabled to ; ^
determine it by an argument, which |.
logicians would call, reducing the proposi
tion to an absirdiiv, viz: If, when IJ
owned and controlled the labor, I could I
not do more than balance accounts with I
cotton at 8 to 10 cents per pound, how I
can I afford to pay wages for all the labor
employed, in addition to tho cost of supporting
it, in its condition of freedom ami 1
disorder? This view of jthe question do- t
termined his course. lie could notaf-iy
ford to hire laborers to raise cotton: it s
was too expensive an operation to engage ! I
in, and he began to realize for the lirst 't
time, tnai siav ry was muwu iimuiMiai, >
find with it all slavery methods; that a n
new theory oi life obtained in the South, t
differing from that which hitherto exist- r
ed ; that every man must make his own j i
living either by the sweat of his brow or i
by the proper uso of the means ho pos- j a
sosscd, that he who expected to hire oth- t
er9 to make a competency for him, over 1
and above the cost of their own maintain- a
ance, would most assuredly be disap-jr
pointed. Being restricted to the alterna- r
tive of either employing others to do his- n
work, hitnse.f being disabled, or to so. p
> utilize his hands as to dispense with the 1
Amount of labor required to cultivate a
them, he directed his attention to the t
consideration of the latter proposition as v
the vital question with him, just as it is j
to-day with every other land holder in ; \
the State. j v
He considered the subject in the follow- i
ing light: his land was to him invest- r
ment of, say ?10 per acre, which ought to ] ?
and must pay an interest annually for his j 1
support; he had tried to ottain an an- a
nual interest from it, by a resort to culti- /]
vated crops, and experience had taught , t
him that that method would not do it, i
with cotton at ten cents a pound ; hence, c
V v the only course left him was to devote s
" his lands to grain. The results of this (
plau were eminently satisfactory. It is u i
poor quality of land which will not yield t
fifteen bushels of oats per acre. Fifty (
cents per bushel is a fair estimate of their t
value, which would give $7.50 per acre. 11
Deduct $4.25 cost of seed, sowing, liar- i
vesting, hauling and threshing, and he |
has a net balance of $3.25 per acre inter- I
est on his investment of $10. His land ;
has been quietly, though industriously, t
at work for him in the rain and sunshine, j i
in darkness and daylight, and has yield- i
ed a handsome return alter paying all ex- .
penses. Cultivated crops entail a con- j
tinuous expense, and can return no <
profit unless the yield is abundant per
acre, or the pricf? of the product in pro-;
portion to the expense of its production. 1
In iutimate connection with grain grow- 1
ing comes another branch of husbandry,
the utility of which our practical friend : I
was not slow to comprehend. A limited |
foumberof sheep and other stock may;
lin knnf nn such a farm with nrolit. i
Subsisting on the same investment,'<
the profits from this source are also prop- l
erly to bo accredited to it. This com- i
pletes tho general system adopted by our 1
friend, pointed out to him by observation
and experience, and the results have coiifimed
its correctness. In the main while
a modest sum of money accumulated
from the sale of cottou at 23 to 35 cents,
had been loaned to an anjoining neighbor
whose land were fresh and productive. 1
This money also labored for its owner
without expense to him, but charged the
borrower 10 per cent, for its service*, of
which he could not com plain, for it labored
day and night to add to its growth.
- The borrower labored also tor an increased
production of cotton ; tho more
it declined in price the greater tho efforts
lie put forth for its production. Alter
the lapse of a number of years, the borrowing
neighbor was overwhelmed in!
debt, while the money borrowed, j?iad-1
ually but surely, increased to an amount
equal to tho value of the neighbbr's
premises.
In tho experience of these two neigh- j
bors we have a striking illustration of tho j
power of silent forces which must be
guided aright, fur they will work out a
result. In this instance, the one has
grown rich, while the other has become
a bankrupt:- the one controlled and directed
the resources at his command, in
the channel indicated by a comparison of
results ; the latter thought of but one ivav,
and spent his life and substance in the
vain endeavor to force every thing into
it. It is true of the individual as well as
of a people, that he must bend to circumstances
or break. This hast\' review
of a successful fanner's views and practice
contains enough, we hope, to indicate
to others whether they are adopting the
right system, and a test of universal application,
we recommend the inquiry, am
I succeeding? There arc other instances
of successful farmers whose system of
:. operations, while differing in detail from
that of our friend in this case, yet all
agree in essential particulars; instances!
of which we will givo in some future is-;
sue.
A j
An acquaintance from the Savannah
side of the county, returned this far fcsat- (
urday, from a trip to Spartanburg across
* the country, and reports that the grain!
crop is less injured in the Saluda section
of Abbeville county, and looks better!
than in any other section on his route.
- His estimate is that fully half the graiu;
has been destroyed.

Success and Failure.
Wo propose to give, from limo to tiino,
in these columns, a brief history ofthoi
views and methods practiced by practi-1
cal farmers in our midst, who have sue- '
ceeded since the war, with the hope of'
aiding others in attaining to a like result,;
from their oxperiouce. There is no surer ,
road to success than that of those who j
succeed. After this wo will give the oth-;
er side of the picture, ot which thero is j
no scarcity of examples. Few men, j
however, are disposed to acktiow ledge;
themselves failures; the fault is not with '
them as they suppose, hut the failure i*
attributable to some unforeseen contingency,
or some combination of circumstances
over which they could exercise
no control. They do not realize, and will
not admit that they themselves were the
principal agents by whom such contingencies
and combinations were brought j;
about; ami thus tlioy complain, relax!
their elforts, and give way to dispouden- j;
ey, when, if they Inula proper coiicep-ll
lion of t!ie truth of the matter, it would j
arouse theni to exertion, and nerve them
to the task of evolving favorable con tin-1
geneics, and <>f combining circumstances j
suit their interests. '1'hev would work
out their own fortune. The views and j'
practices of the man of success, arc not J
those of him who fails; they arc asdif-j(
fcrcnt as truth and error. The former j
repudiates the views of tho latter. He
knows they are erroneous and will bring |
disaster as tho reward of their adoption; t
but the man who fails cannot see such ^
distinction; all methods arealike to iiim,j |
and lie proceeds, as ignorant of the issue, a
lis a uian color blind is, of tho effects of j'
.no prism, till he reaches tho result; {
wrought out by tho inexorable logic of Jt
events. j
It is a fact of wide application, which
induces disastrous results, that farmers j
iro too little given to careful, anxious, jd
persistent investigation of the conditions!
jf success in their business. We have, 1
ill our life, been fond of and identified i?
ivith the operations of the farm and tho ; r
practices of farmers. We are not a nov- j1
ice, but know whereof we speak. There 1
s less thoroughness in the operations,
md moro waste of time, material and la- e
aor on tho average farm of tho country |
hail can be found in any other depart-!
nent of legitimate business; hence, in P
>rder to show tho value of each of these I'1,
^dispensable elements of success, wejp
hink they can be most etfeetivelv pre-11;
tented in tho experience and practice ofj
lomo man who lias succeeded. Such a I u
mo serves as a sort of text book to be1 f<
cad and studied by others around him; C
vliile those who have failed, serve as a si
icacon light to warn others of the break- I.
trs on which they, and all who persue t
lie saino course, will be wrecked. We a
>resent elsewhere, in this issue of the S
"mux anil Banner, tho first of these j c?
ketches of h most worthy, though un- ri
iretending and modest, example for iin-!s<
tation, who lias succeeded in spito ol the;
nost trying dilliculties to which ordinary i
n<Mi would have yielded in diipair, and c<
rhoso success should put to tho blush
he less thrifty, stout and able-bodied J b
ons of the toil, or should at least en -, e<
onragc to renewed dilligenoe, those who loubt
their capacity to sit weed in this s(
road field of operations, as yet, so little ig;
Icveloped in this Southern land, whose,"1
arietv and capacity of production isj^1
irtually without limit. Ia<
An American Error.
A European observer and critic of "
' 11
Imeriean ideas, very justly observes a|
hat it is a mistake in the youths of v
Lmerica to forsake the country and con- w
ireirate in cities and towns. It seems to
ie a more universal practice in America t]
hau elsewhere, and hence, our profesions
are overcrowded, and all depart-j
nents of trade full to overflowing. The d
ruth is, there are only about two depart-!
nents of business now open to the young!
nen of this country which ofTer muchjol
nducement bv way of compensation,! n
nd those are teach in or and farminjr. A ^
irst class teacher with executive ability j,
1:1s as encouraging a field to operate in,! r?
s any now open. His talents will com- ul
nand a good salary, and such aro in de-jei'
nnnrl This department of business is:Hi
iot a popular one and hence is overlook-''?
d to a greut extent, as is that of farming,
"his latter is that which is contemned J ?
n*l rejected liy the young; they have no! r<
aste for the quiet, persistent, systematic M
vork of the farm, hut choose rather theiU'
tleasnres and excitement of town life,
villi its dangers, temptations* and fail-' c
ires. The opposition to this pursuit in tl
ife is based to a very crreat extent, also,;01
in the prevalent idea that it is not as re-! v
ipectable or honorable as other callings, ti
Those in whose minds such ideas exist 11
ire not fit and will not succeed anywhere.
There is something radically wrong in ii
" j
heir composition and will have to be re-,
nodeled before they are caj able of any ^
renuine success at anything. The aver- '1
'ion to the life of the farm may, to a great c
sxtent, arise from the unskillful and un-:
ntelligent niannor in which its oporaions
are, almost universally, carried 011.! 0
Others seeing the meagre results, and the; (|
ininviting prospects of the year's opera-! ii
;ions are discouraged from entering upon . r
t, but rather turn away in despair, sup-, *!
nosing that the results are all that Ugliest
skill and intelligent experience will t
neld; hut this is a fatal mistake. In
.his Southern land there is no business j|
more improperly and superficially man-1
med tlian that of the average farmer, i t;
And yet there is no business which re-!0
quires tlie same extent of varied knowl- i0
jdge, of executive ability and sterling jo
worth. This too, is the source of all i:
wealth ; all professions, all departments, r
af trade, all classes and conditions of so-1 *
fiety rest on this foundation for support. u
The popularizing and development of j
this interest will contribute more to the f
prosperity of the people than all the factories
that covld be erected. This inter-'.
t'
est of the State ou^ht to receive more en- a
[ ouragement. An exemption of cotton ' *
factories from taxation for ten years j ^
would not have been needed if Ai;ricul?
j 21
ture had been developed as it ought. it
Money would have then sought invest- u
inents in the manufacture of raw mate-!1
rial from which it arose. It appears to
us that it is bcginitiK at the wrong end to ' t
foster other industries, with a view to thej
products of the farm, when the farm it-; r
self needs so much. It is caring for the i I
branches when the trunk is dying. Why ] j
not some exemption* in oriler to encour- 1
a>;o agriculture. We hope soon to see J *
the day when agriculture will bo most!
popular, because the most honorable,. t
pleasant and remunerating employment: J
of the day, and when our intelligent, ac-ia
tiveyoung men will prefer it to drolling;*
out a miserable existence in some popular
profession. 2
X (irand Conception of Duty. 1 *
i
Our friends of the Methodist Church v
iiutu umuicu u('^u iiiu uiuviiiiku ?.ca
bratiou of the introduction of Method- |t
isni into this country, and propose to 1
commemorate its progress and develop-j *
ment by a year of redoubled olfort in the! t
service of the Master. Wo think this is!
a grand conception of duty, an appropri-j J
ate method of expression of gratitude, I j
which will carry with it its own reward. I,
The combined efforts of one-third, or <
more, of the protestants of the Southern j
.States, wealthy, intelligent and seeking '
nil appropriate method of thanksgiving, | (
must eventuate in great results. Every <
member is to be brought into service,!,
whether young or old, and is expected to J
contribute his mite. It is to be no jubilee i1
heralded by the sounding of trumpets, j
or triumphal march with banners, but a;:
year of earnest, active but humble elfort;
to complete the unfilled measure of duty j'
ot a ceruury wmcn is to uuu mm me
year 1884. Beginning at home, the work'!
is to expand; churches are to be freed1
from debt; superannuated ministers tobe
provided for; all church schemes of;
beneficence to bo fostered, and the whole
to bo crowncd, by planting the gospel, as j
a memorial shaft, in tho midst of the,
heathens, to sliino trt the ends of tho
earth. But it is in a broader sense, wo
wish to call attention to this cetitennary j
occasion : It is an event of no trifling significance
t'> the country ; indeed, it is an !
occasion in which every individual of
whatever namo or denomination, may
rejoicc, as a citizen, in yiew of the blessings
of peace and order, tranquility and
appiiress, guaranteed to "that people
whoso God is tho Lord." Wo have!
thought the pernio of tlio Soutli havo.
been imperiled ax no other people havo1
probably ever been, and in the midst of|
it all a restraining power has protocted J
them. When the civil war left thorn ]
powerless, and at tho mercy of a mer-,
cenary loo, thero was a element freed and i
turned loose in their midst, whoso pres- >
ence and office was that of a epv. Like!
the plagues of Egypt, they were in every j
man's house, around and about hint to j
annoy and harrass; he could not escape!
their surv eillance; every word and act of
impatiencc was constraed into disloyalty
and rebellion, and promptly reported.
The ingenuity of a vindictive foe w.os exhausted
to provoke onr people to ac:ts of>
desperation, that the ehains of despotism
might be riveted upon them, but in the t
midst of it all they were protected and J
guided. 10very citizen, therefore, is interested
in the trill lit ps of gospel trnlh, l
uid should rejoice with his Methodist'
Iriends in this, their centennial year.
Cheap Freight and Rapid Transit.
The Augusta Krcning Sewn says: In
discussing the recent acquisition of tho
Jreenville, Laurens and Spartanburgj
Railroad by the Central, a popular and ,
jnergelic railroad man remarked : ji
"Tho next step will be a grand trunk !
iuel'rom Fort tloyal to Spartanburg."
This is a striking plan and it will not i
>e long before it is in operation. Indeed*
he development of the I'ort Ilovul Rail-!(
,vay under its present management is I
iinlply wonderful, and the running ofl
rains*from l'ort Royal to Greenwood i? j *

The rapid movement of tho freight on

lie Poit Royal Steamers, which are now
loing some swift schedule work."
A vast amount of freight is shipped by
his line, and transferred here for points

oad. So popular has it become that it r

Seuioi-s Affiuout.?Kd. McGco, a

nearly to death, last Saturday night. .
le was passing near Riley's livery sta- j
le, when, he asserts, an object confronti
him in his pathway. He put out his

ro port ions and a hideous aspect which
