SHEEP HUSBANDRY.
Valnable Sustentions as to n Most
Important Indniitry?Golden Feet
of tbe Sheep?A Most Interesting;
Letter Froin Col. James H. Rice.
Editor Pressnnd Banner:
You are a farmeranda stocky farmer. I will
noi can you n nusonuuuiau, uruiuac juu ur
text puns, nod this equivocal word may
make a bachelor tremble. But you are certainly
deeply Interested in agriculture, as
your paper has long shown, and I remember
a year ago agriculture took a large interest in
you and your paper.
I spent the afternoon of April lf>th with our
friend, Eldred S. Addison, walking and riding
over bis magnificent farm. It is three miles
from Ninety-Six, in Edgefield ounty, lying
on Beaver Dam and Ninety-Six creeks, in the
heart of the famous Cambridge lsnds?the
most fertile uplands in theState. The plantation
contains 800 acres, is beautiful for situation,
abundantly watered, thoroughly fenced
with wire nud plank and bbows everywhere
the band of a master. I have no time for detail,
and besides, the owner is a modest man
who stays at home and successfully handles
and drives his own business. I am Intent to
tell you and your readers about his sheep and
Incidentally other things.
Mr. Addison carried 130 sheep through the
winter. March 24th he sold to an Augusta
butcher 6 wethers and 14 lambs, averaging 60
pounds, for 6 cents gross. He has now 77
lambs, very many of which will weigh 80
pounds, and probably none as low as 50.
They are all ready for the table and I really
believe would compare favorably with an
equal number from any farm In the Union.
They would create a furore in Fulton Market,
and tempt the most fastidious palate In any
i?..j uu mill iroim cnmo nf Hip flnpst, fnr his
iauu? iic mil avvp "v.mv w. ... - ? ? ....
own use?table and flock. Will Bell many for
fancy prices to men who desire to Improve
tbelr flock', and the balance go to tbe butcher.
But lor this be could market, every lamb
to-day for $3 per head for tbe table.
I am racing the Important question, does
sheep farming pay here In our county? Mr.
Adulson thinks It does, and presents the
proof. Some years ago he bought this place
badly run down from cotton culture and unwise
Ullage and grazing. He has at leastdoubled
its value, and although he has a reputation
for flue horses, keeps a large herd of cattle
and many hogs, and has sold pure red oats
throughout theutate.be believes tbe prime
factor in this development is the sheep.
First, his present nock are penned nightly,
and with them alone, be annually makes
very rich eight acresof land, inovlDg his pens
about every ten days. The money value of
tbis land cannot be estimated. Every farmer
knows what a cow pen means, and sheep
droppings are richer than cows. It means
heavy crops of barley, which can only be
made to perfection on penned land, oats, rye,
clover and turnips, ana is good for a life time,
if properly graded and tilled.
His sbeep are large and heavy wooled, as
you can Judge from the crosses named. He
begun wltti tirade Meriuos and Cotswold ewes
breeding them to the best Broad Tailed rams
be could buy in the country. They combine
size, wool and mutton flavor to perfection.
His flock of old sheep will probably shear six
pounds per bead. Tbey are large, very fat
ar>d having constantly cleaned his pastures
bis wool will command the highest prices.
Sheep give annually three returns when
properly uinuo^cu?nuui, uiuvwu, muuo curlcbed.
They are close feeders, destroy noxious
weeds aud give us tbe only cbauce to redeem
the bald red hills of our splendid ooun
ty, gutted by a century of cotton culture, and
scalded by blazing suns on lands without covering.
We need sheep on every farm. We i
covered thousands once and now bave pens,
and these left to the tender mercies of weather
and dogs. Not the darkey, for be does not
love mutton?bis affections are centered on
the pig. 1
It is very remarkable that the only book on
sbeep husbandry In the South, and particularly
In South Carolina, was written by Mr.
Randall, a famous sheep farmer from New
York. Visiting Gov. Alston, bte waa so Ira- i
pressed with the superiority of our soli, climate
and natural range for sheep tbat he <
published a book which will be a revelation 1
lo every reader. I can only say that he declares
that a line iroin Georgetown to Memphis
is the diameter of tbe finest sbeep range
in the world? Mnerlca, Europe or Asia.
Bead It. This industry is peculiarly suited
lo white people. From tbe birth of tbe sbeep 1
to bis death he ueeds such constant care as '
only a white man can and will give. The
lambing, the watching In pasture, the careful <
tending and penning, the shearing, tbe fine 1
art of butchering, ana l snail never omit uie
cooking and eatlngof them, in emphatically a
privilege and duty of the white race. It la
easily llrst of meals for health or pleasure in
h hot clltnate. Roasted, boiled, chops most
savory and barbecued, Mr Wilson, Is a dish
for the gods. But I am not writing a treatise
on gastronomy, though tbe contemplation
even Is most delightful.
I believe sheep have golden feet. It is so
written and sung in old England for a hundred
years, and they have aided largely to
make her garment of green which catches
every visitor's eye.
I have, sir, written thus earnestly because I
believe sheep should be on every jarm In our
county, and I take tbe liberty to append to
this article a statement of estimates showing
profits on Mr. Addison's flock. I spent happy
and profitable years In its pursuit, and if I
can say anytblng to draw our people Into
this most pleasant and profitable channel I
shall rejoice. , ?
Mr. Audisoa runs on many lines. He does
not put all his eggs in one basket, but be and
I would be pleased to know that many ol
them la the shape of sheep were In the baskets
of every farmer. Serve aotlceonCol.
Watt's, the veteran sheep maD, and you and
he come to see me. I will carry yon without
notice to Mr. Addison's farm, and you will be
pleased and maybe Instructed. Please add
tbe table of Dr. Cr., showing profits, and
obllce. Very truly, J. H. Rice.

Editor Wilson, of the Abbeville Press aD
liauner, IB a just ana itur-uimueu maii,i
whs evidenced by the Impartial report of b
County meeting, and the frank confesslo
tbat Tillman's strength over the State had li
creased rather than diminished. We war
Brother Wilson to come over on the side <

will do so. He is too good and true a man 1

No earthly power can defeat Tillman's r<
election, for, as tbe Press and Banner cot
fes8eM, he is the undoubted choice of the pe<
pie. Majority rule is the fundamental princ
pel of Democracy, and it now becomes hi
duly to yield personal preference on th
shrine of unity and harmony, and hel
cement our party and draw all factions U
gether. It will be a noble and praiseworth
act on the part of Editor Wilson, and w
know him to be a man with the honesty am
courage to take such a step wheu duty am
his party commands ?Columbia Register.
In so lar as our brother speaks of our itr
partial report of the meeting atAbbevlll
last Saleday, we thank btm.
He correctly estimates us when he seems t
think that we desire to be fair and honest. A
far as this editor knows himself be has n
otber guide or ambition than to do tbe rlgbi
But we confess to a degree of mortificatloi
when the editor of tbe Register assumes t
think that we could be induced to suppoi
Mr. Tillman. Our inborn Dature would no
auow us u> uo so, aim u wo viumn-u our uui
victlons we would sacrifice our own persona
sell-respect. Mr. Tillman's followers woul
lose respect for us if we Joined In this unbol;
orusade against the decency and respectabi;
ity of South Carolina, and supported his ad
ministration in the unjust, unfair and it
Iqultous effort to extort from the banks an
the railroads more than their Just proportioi
of the burdens of the Goverment. \ve fe
that the most violent or most Intolerant sup
porters of Mr. Tillman's administration re
gard this editor with at least some degree c
respect for honesty of purpose, and because c
their good opinion we would not, if for n
other reason, Join in and give our encourage
ment to an administration when doing wha
the more intelligent of their number know V
be morally wron<. We flatter ourselves li
thinking that Mr. Tillman's supporters ii
this county think better of us than to bellev
we would do what we know to be unjust.
Wo excuse tbe editor of the Register for hi
suggestion, because bo does not Know us. an<
for the further reason, that the methods o
warfare which have been practiced upon
Governor Tillman have been so dlstateful t<
us, that we have refused to Join in dolni
what we believed to be unfair. While belni
ourself a pronounced "ami," yet we have ai
times felt like protesting against,the manner
and methods of our own, wing or the Detnc
cratic party in Its treatment ot Mr. Tillman
We have sometimes lelt like remonstralini
with our friends for covering up whatseeme*
to us the Governor's best Intentions by hi
errors or doubtful acts of proceedure.
As a matter of fact, we believe Governoi
Tillman is honest. We believe that be is i
man of ability, and we believe in his offlcla
correspondence he has done himself and tb
State credit.
But, in spite of all this, we cannot suppor
Governor Tlllmau in the primary election
and we presume it would not be amiss l<
state some of our reasons for not supportiuj
him :
First?He seems not to aspire to be Gover
nor of tbe whole people, but rather to use hi
omciai position to irriuiie ana aggravate
those who are not his supporters. As one ev
ldence of this fact see article copied from tbi
Florence Messenger.
Second?As Governor be should not seek U
array one class against another, but shoulc
strive to bring harmony among tbe peopU
over whose Interests he presides. He Is. to<
dictatorial in bis own office, and presumei
loo near to hu assumption ol the powers o
the Judiciary, while attempting, for spltefu
reasons, to bring tbe Judges into public con
tempt.
Third?The Governor, like the President, ii
at tbe head of society in bis sphere, and. be
cause of this (act, he should observe the com
mon uud well established laws of polite so
clety. F6r Instance: When he is approach
ed by any citizen, either socially or officially
he should not, as Governor, give vent to pas
<lon or fire a volley ot Ill-mannered oaths a
Ills petitioner. Tbe humblest citizen, as wel
as tbe highest, Is entitled to a respectful hear
ing, and tbe Governor's proper regard for hit
jvrn position should restrain him from
soarce profanity lu the presence of thoBe whc
come in respect, or It may be In humility.
Fourth?The Governor's utter and absolute
disregard for the religious feelings of his peo
pie is evideuced in his using profane
language when speaking to a mixed audience
!>f ladies and gentlemen. The ruler of a
Christian people should respect their religious
convictions. A disregard of thlnge
which any people hold sacred Is violative of
;ood manners and renders such person unit
f<* their ruler.
Fifth?Governor Tillman's Influence in pronoting
profanity and In lowering tbe standard
of morals among the people has been so
zreat that it may be said that the combined
jflbrts of all the preachers Id Ihe land will be
sufficient to correct bis evil influence In
,be next five years.
Sixth?No man who corrupts the manners
)f the people, and encourages open profunlty,
ind a general disregard of sacred things,
:omes up to our Ideal of a proper Governor of
i Christian people, and therefore we cannot
lupport him.
Seventh?The Governor of a great State
ihould not fly into a passion, and utter dlu espectful
language In reference to those cLtl;ens
who are opposed to him. When he goes
>n the stump, he does so In a double capacity
-as Governor and as candidate for re-election
-and he should not Insult any class of peoDie,
with the idea of thereby appealing to
he prejudice of another class.
Eighth?We cannot support the present adnlnlstratlon,
because of Its unequal, unjust
ind malicious execution or the tax laws. No
)olltlcian ever bad a better motto than
equal rights to all and special privileges to
lone." We endorse thatsetlment unreservedy.
But we deprecate the uufalmess, the malctousness
and the extortion which has been
^radioed under that banner. We have good
eason to believe that Governor Tillman reurns
ills own Individual property for taxation
at from thirty to fifty per cent, of Its real
/alue. For this act we have nothing to
iharge against him. The return is as gooa as
:hat of thousands of others?including posilbly
our own. But the moral wrong, and the
ipproach to a disreputable act on the part ol
:hl8 Government lies in the fact that the ofleers
under Governor Tillman's administration
are trying to use their official power to
issess the corporations,?If not at more than
Lhe actual worth of their property, certainly
it a rate greatly in excess of that at which
Lhe property of private citizens is returned,
nciudlng the Governor himself. With our
present convictions, highway robbery is just
is honorable as the using of official power tc
sxtort unjust taxation from one class of citizens,
while allowing another class to dodge.
Believing that the machinery of the law has
been used to oppress corporations, while the
officers themselves have dodged a fair taxalion,
we would lose our claim to a decent in
tegrlty, and would ourself be a party to the
act, if we supported the perpetrators of the
crime. How any man acquainted with the
facts and claiming ooinmon honesty, can en
dorse this official war of extermination
against the corporations is more than we can
understand. We believe in "equal rights tc
all and special privileges to none," and wll
forever protest against any act which has the
tendency to confiscate one man's property
while allowing another to escape a just pro
portion of the burdens of the Government.
Ninth?We have not forgiven this adminis
tration for the calamity which it has Indictee
on this people in the establishment of Clem
son College. We had no sufficient need foi
that College, and It will be for all time t(
come, u heavy burden 011 the people, wlthoul
giving in return a Jalr equivalent. We hat
enough colleges already. Although the col
lege is not open, is there not to-day 1
corps of professors In the pay of the Govern
ment? If so, why is Itso?
Whatever political differences maj
arise between us we shall not on oui
part, allow any feeling to enter. We are no
convinced that there is enough In this cam
palgn to bring abont excitement or aliena
tiou between neighbors. This State has hat
some pretty roueh experiences In the past
and it can likely stand whatever Is In ston
