The Grange Must Ed Social-
II the Graiijre th roudiout the leugih
and breadth of the land were con
ducted on true social pi'inciuies, so
that the men and women of cajh
ueis-hboihood meet in the Grange
and discuss matters of general inte
rest it would lend to elevate and im
prove the status of the Order. All
that is uccessary to this end is that
eoiue members of the Grouse inaugu
rate some plan and hold out faithfully
until it is accomplished. It would
soon be fcund surprising how many
facts could bo gathered, even from
I lie seemingly ignorant, which, stored
up, would lay the foundation for fu
ture usefulness. A very pleasant aud
necessary adjunct io the social lea
tures i a simple lunch or snack pros
vided at least once a month by each
family or single members furnishing
a few eatables. It is preferable to
have the mectiegs of an informal and
conversatioaal naturo, devoted in a
great degreo to social chat upon sub
jects of local interest and profit in
which all may join freelv and frankly.
In evry Grange there is more or less
musical talent, aud at every meeting
there should be singing by all means,
with instrumental accomplishments, if
possible. Among the members, even
at the outset, will bo found some who
are able to deliver short extempore
addressee, or to prepjre short essays
ou interesting subjects. We recom
mend that debates bo introduced,
avoiding too lengthy ones, and these
should be varied with music aud the
refreshments. If these suggestions
were rigidly carried out it would be
found surprising how soon the genial
influence would spread, aud eager all
would bo to join iu the work. We
believe that it is' absolutely requisite
that this social feature of the Grange
bo enlarged as much as possible by
tho several GraDges in this section,
and wo sincerely trust tho masters
will give this subject their earnest at
tention, and devise some plan by
which the Grange will prove instruct
ive and attractive to both the old and
the young. There mast be something
done to keep up an interest in the
meetings in order to have an attend
ance. It the Grange is conducted in
acco: dance with the views of its
founders, it will accomplish great
present good, and exercise a powerful
yiflnence upon tho rising generation.
And very Boon every man, woman and
child will look forward to tho day or
night of meeting as a time of social
enjoyment nud improvement.

Another widespread and constant

to uromotQ tiio inateriul wellaru of

Homo of these combiimii' ns in Lon
don, but more in manuruciiii iiig coun
ties, and they are confined chiefly to
artisans, meclnmics, small traders
and manufacturing laborers. It
would not be so cany for ngi icultuial
laborers to act together, as they live
further apart and have not tho re
sources aud facilities of tho oilier
classes for co operation. Still there
is no reason that tho system which
has beeu developed in the towns
should not l o exteuded to tho villa
ges, i no worKuicn saw tiiut cacn
family buying provisions, clothes and
household materials iu small quanti-.
tics at the ordinal y stores or shops as
they wanted them, wore paying dear
for poor articles, and that a host ol
shopkeepers lived far better than
themselves, or got rich by this busi-
ness. They concluded to eo operate
by clubbing together a certain
amount of their waes, and with that
agi-ealed sum buy at wholesale and
sell to each oilier from the common
stack at wliolcsalo prices, with the
cost of management added. Thay
found that they they got everything
much chenper and ol a better quality.
What one or two could. Tho
gregated small meanJ of many form
ed a capital with which tho co-oper
ators cou'd goto lhot first aud best
market. From a small beginuing in
this way larger and important estab
lishments have grown up, some of
which have stock and capital to
the amount of many hundred thou-
sauds ot dollars. They have the
management and characteristics of
large mercantile firms, and some of
ihcrn sell lo others as well as to co
operators, for tho benefit of tho as
sociation. This tort of community
of interest, if it can be carried out
far or genoral!'', would prove an ef
fectual cure to the destructive and
impiacticable communism or social
ism of tho French and German the
orist, and it must have a conserva
tive tendency, as it is bassed on prop
erty industriously acquired and con
tributed. If some great leader would
rise up to shape the coming destiney
of tho masses and to regulate their
aspirations in harmony with order
and healthy progress, he might be
come the Premier of England.
The settlers on tho Osage lands' in
Kansas have beaten the railroads
who claimed tho lands of nearly 40,
"000 farmers, as within tho line of
tboir grauts. The courts have up
held the claims of the farmers. There
are Grangers in Kansas and Iowa,
where the judges live. That circum
stance may have had nothing to do
with shaping the decision. Ono thing

There is nothing a fni ui''r has to buy
where lie gets morn hi money's
worth, limn in buying looks and pa-
pcrs. Tlify clothe us in a garment
which will nfV'r fade, but the lung
er we wear it, the brighter and more
duiable it to I. s. Nobody can sleal it
or cheat us out of it. Now, while wo
are bfgiiuiig to correct past errors,
let us Le Huro to take hold at the right
end in tho start. Let us follow t fie
child Ironi the cradle to tho grave.
Urothcr grangers, let me draw
your aUcntion to tho period when
tho child begins to lisp hi.i first words
almost. Tho little boy, with true in
herent. will ask his play-follow "flow
will you trade knives V Right then
and th re ho begins to try to lie and
deceive in order to get a good bar
gain. Now, who is to blame when,
iu after years, that child assumes in
manhood u worthless character V
The answer to this I leave to your
selves. Tlie practice of such teach
ings, cftcD'.imcs coupled with the ap
plause of parents at what would be
called a good bargain, creates u d
sire lor property, for which they are
willing, iu time, to sacrifice all that
pertains to morality. Their lives they
can save, providing they have ihuir
pockets well filled.
Now Kt us take a view of llio
chances the child has by the time it
is to go to school, providing tho par
en's see fit to givo it soino eJueation
fcr at present there is r.o law
which compels us 10 send our child
ren to school, how long, nor makes it
a rule to the teacher, saying, ''Here,
every class must go through every
branch of common fcchool education,
if they are old enough," No, that is
all left to tho parents' or scholars'
option. To teach morality and good
behavior abroad, as well at school, is
nover though of. We will never
gain what wo are aiming at unless
we urge our state government to pass
a compulsory education law, as New
York and Illinois have passed the
last year ; end many other slates will
soon lollow. By that means our ed
ucation will be uniform. The poor,
as well as the rich will have a chance
th impuove their talent, and not iet it
lie dormant or go to waste, for tho
want of nourishment, as is tho case
now. With the aid of our gieat
privileges, free speech, a freo press
and a liberal government to pro
mote our school interests, what is
there lo prevout this country from
going forward in a career unmatch
ed by any other nation ? 15y that
system, intelligence will become
general, truthfulness aud honesty
will be established, and all people
will understand each other belter,
and gain confidenco in each other.
Then, let us have good school houses
and mo-ie of them, especially in win
ter time. Procuro good teachers,
aud pay them well' Let them study
the young hearts. Commenco at the
root, and implant good motives and
sound pi inciplea in youth, and they
Will never depart Irora them.
I bold that all talent is a produc
tion, the same as tho golden grain
raise and the more we raiso ot
it. tho more we enrich the countr.

The Soul hern people view with no

tion of colored labor. Thoso who
grew up in a state ol slaiory and ac
quired industrious habits will still
work, tliourh with loss result by fifty
per cent than lormerlv. Tho rising
generation have 110 such habits, and
are not likely ever to become pro
ductive members of society. It is
even more difficult to obtain and re
tain a faithful nesfro servant here
than an Irish servant at tlie North.
They come and go at will, stay long

Should tliesn iufi ieaoes continue tho
blacks will gradually work ihein-t

and willing laborers of another race.
It must not bo understood from the

whites, even with all their bgrie.itli
tural advautagos aud all tho profit
likely to accruo therefrom, can with
out uccessious maintain tho crop at
the present standard and establish a
basis of calculation on which the cap'
itaiist aud manufacturer muy safely
count his gains.
Where the ballots of tho negro are
thrown without intelligence aud ur.
der the influence of fal.-e aud wicked
representations, aud whoro the race
can thus insensibly exercise control
in public affairs, it is impossible for a
good government to oxist. A bad
man from the North may come here,
proclaim himself a radical, aud in
three months so far wiu the confidence
of those ignorant people as that they
will follow his advico blindly to the
pistol poiut. The love for the old
master is forgotten, all the beuclits
of past or present life are ignored and
tar no other reason thau that this
man is bolievcd by tham to represent
what ihey cull liberty, and, bad as be
may be, they will obey his voice us if
ho were an autocrat, and do his bid
ding like slaves. It is lor this reason
that tho people of tho South never
have beeu able to make political
headway with the negroes, and cyen
as Republicans have been thro wn
aside lor tho carpet-bagger and thief.
It is only a little while ago that the
race made deposits of their savings
in the Freedman's Bank. To-duy it
is said to be a hopelessly insolvent
institution and yet the poor dupe
takes no lesson, und even kisses tho
hand thai gave tho eraol blow. It is
a curious race. A year or two ago
one of their number, a Northern ne
gro, named Alvah Peoria Bradley,
went among them and collected their
poll taxes, amounting to several hun
dred dollars, and decamped. Ho is
now back ugain seeking for office or
another swindle, and it will not be
astonishing if for no other reason
ttian that he is a Boston radical, be
succeeds in securing under some plun
dering pretext a cousidarablo share
of their year's hard earnings. It is
this class of people to whom the
whites refer, when they say, "Let us
alone 1" It is but fair to say, however,
that even if there were no radical
party in the State or nation the net
gro, as a voter, would probably still
be a political evil, for he would nat
urally affiliate with that class of
whites who approach him nearest iu
character and condition, and who are
base enough to cheat him out of Ins
ballot for no other object than to put
the worst elements of society forward
in the administration of the govern
ment . If the colored man were less
afflicted with political prejudice there
would be less danger of political cor
ruption, lor the whites bare the
strongest inducements to secure to
kirn all of his rights as a citizen, and
to promote mutual harmony and pros
perity. This they have sought in
vain to do ever since the close ol the
war, nor will they sujeeed iu tho fu
ture until the cluef disorganizing cle

and harmonious, we are loo strong
for them, and they know i hence
their policy is to "divido and con
quor." That game should be under
stood. We must not play into their
bun Is. It would delight them to see
the West arrayed against the East,
and the outh against the North, and
they will do their best to foment dis
cord. They will not succeed except
through our own supremo lolly, and
thank God ! there are 110 signs of
such folly, at present. From the At
lantic to the Pacific, and from Cana
da to Florida, the order is a nnit.
Democrat and Republican; Northern
and .Southern ; those who woro tho
blue, and those who, but a few years
ago met them in deadly strife, clad
in gray, are brothers in the Grange,
and the fraternal "grip" is as warm
and os hearty for the one as the oth
er, torproolot this, brothers of
the North and West, come down
South and visit our Granges. ""We

wo say, when we promise you, not
merely a friendly greeting, but a

What thb Patiioss Seek. The
Patrons seek a more progressiva and
better system of Agriculture. They
favor all enterprises of benefit to tho
country, but will stand ready to tread
with an iron heal 011 nil that is un-
just and oppressive. They will claim
for labor its just reward, and will re
gard highest those who do the most
for manhood, rather than those who
have done tho most for themselves-
The Patrons will soek, as far as prac
ticable, to bring the producer to the
consumer, and thereby do away with
a large number of agents and drum
mers, not because they have no uso
for them.
These are soma of the leadiDg
objects. -
The Patrons have no war with
middlemen whether they be mer
chants or carriers , but they recog
nize the fact that dishonest men have
taken advautage of positions to de
fraud them, and that honest men
have charged thrm quite as largo
profits, quite as numerous coaimis
sions and quite as high freights as it
was possible to collect from them..
They wish to see it by a little lore
sight and co-operation on their part,,
they cannot contrive to savo a pari
of those numcroasfcommissions, re

clutches of thioves, aud withall, to
