To the Press of South Carolina:
rhe Formers' Union recognizing
he great influence of the papers
>f the State in moulding public
entiment, has made liberal use
?f your columns in the past few
kreeks to put before our members
nd your readers generally maters
of much importance. The
xecutive head of the Union deires
to make public acknowledgement
of our obligation to the paters
of the State for their prompt
ublication of the matter we have
ent Ollt. We nlart wiuh to t.Vini.lr
he Editors who have in their edtorial
columns commended our
fTorts and have urged the farmers
o lino up for self-defence.
The fight has just begun. In
act wo think that so far it has
teen skirmishing and picket duty,
'he real battle is before us. It
nil be a question of endurance
rhether the powers will "hang
ogether" for homo and fireside,
r "hang seperately" at tho end
f the nooso which the bear Arny
of European and New Engand
spinners are ready to tight11
around our necks, while the
'Tories" as represented by the
louthern mills kick the stoolH
rom under our feet. It is a fight
o the finish and we ure counting
11 tho aid of the press that has
icvor yet failed us to keep our
leoplo informed and to encourage
hem in ovorv way.
In addition to our work through
he press we are sending com mm
lications from time to time direct
o the Local Unions. We shall
ontinue to give to the press such
formation as in our opinion will
ie of interest to their readers and
nil aid us in our work.

A shipment of twenty Indian
Runner ducks were received here
from the state of Indiana last week
These ducks are said to be the bes1
layers in the world and it is hopec
that the experiment in this section
with this variety of ducks will meei
with success. They are said to be
easily raised, not subje;t to disease
and eat no more than chickens
These ducks stand confinement wel
with only drinking water and a twe
foot fence will confine them.
The home that possesses a cheerful
wife and mother is not only a
veritable haven of rest, but the safe
harbor whose beacon light will guide
her bread winners safely past all
rocks and shoals with unfailing certainty.
'I he woman whose cheerful
spirit can take that "brave attitude
toward life" that enables her
to bear courageously the inevitable
burdens of her life's environment;
that strengthens her determination
not to fret or worry those who, for
her sake, are fighting the hard battles
in the world, has reached that
altitude that proclaims her price above
rubies; and her influence and
example are not felt only within the
limits of the four walls she has
made the unassailable bulwark of
state and society, a happy home,
but reach to those she knows not of.
To make a boy into a pure man, a
mother must do more than pray.
She must live with him in the sense
of comrade and closest friend. She
must standby him in time of temptation
as the pilot sticks to the
wheel when rapids are aiound. She
must never desert him to go off to
I superintend outside duties any more
than the .engineer deserts his post
and goes into a baggage car to read
up engineering when his train is
pounding across the' country at forty
miles an hour.
A man who has made a happy
home for his wife and children, no
matter what he has not done in the
way of achieving wealth and honor;
if he has done that he is a grand success.
If he has not done that, and
it is his own fault, though he be the
highest in the land, he is a most
pitable failure. We wonder how
many men in a mad pursuit of gold,
which characterizes the age, realize
that there is no fortune which can
be left to their families as great as
the memory of a happy home.
