quoBtion rosolvos itsolt simply into
ono of oconomy. In the lowor and
middlo portions of tho Stato whoro
timber is scarco, it is obvious that a
law compelling tho enclosure of stock
would bo a groat benefit, ospooially to
tho poor man. The riob man will
generally tako care of himself, and is
ablo to do so. Without a fonoo law
all the virgin forest and oven that
which is not virgin, will soon have
boon cut down. It will soon bocomo
a necessity within our Stato; (or our

We aro awaro that a groat deal can
bound is said, in opposition. Every
important question tonding to tho
amelioration of mankind has over met
with bitter opposition. Morso's telegraphic
schomo had its violont opposers;
Fulton had his, and Columbus
his. Nevertheless right prevailed
finally. On this subject of a fence
law, if all tho arguments for and
against bo carefully and dinpfiRBionately
weighed in tho balances of ovory
clour and unprojudicod mind, tho dos
cision will bo favorablo to a foncc
law. Tho Ban nor says:
"Tho poor man who is unablo to
buy timbor to mako rails to protcct
his crop is absolutoly at tho morcy of
his neighbors' oattlo. Tho rich farm
era who liavo largo landod ostatos can
gonorally protoet tlioir crop, but tho
poor man with a small track finds it
impoegiblo to build loncos. As tho
law now stands it discriminates as
gainst tho poor. Thousands of a ores
of land in Abbovillo county now lie
idlo and non productivo for tho want
of timber to truard tho cron luminal

tho depreciation of stock. Tho poor
of tins county should demand that
thoir rich neighbors bo responsible for
tho crops which their stock destroy.
Nothing paralyzes tho onergj* and
spirits of tho farmer more th^n to'
havo his ciops destroyed by droves ofj
hungry cultlc. Many froodmon of
this oountyv who hnvc rcntod lands
and plowed and hood in tho sunshine
and rain havo soon their crops destroyed
for wnnt of feneos."

Tho Principal is a toachor of long

and, if toaehors, liko those in
other professions, are to bo "known
by their fruits, bo unquestionably
will have to bo favorably judged; for
this Bchool now sends forth two young

Wo could but romark tho high
character of tho school. To boo young
men and girls in their toons translating
English sontonoos with porfoct
