Farmers' Meeting in Alamance.
Editor! Progressive Farmer :
It had been raining all the first
part of the week and the farmers
were somewhat behind with their
work, and the clouds had rolled by
and the ground had just gotten in
fine condition to work and every far
mer was extremely busy. And yet,
according to previous announcement,
there was a farmers' meeting at
Hawfield grac'-! school -house last
Saturday, Juiy 2nd, arid Bro. T. B.
Parker was there, and in his usual
earnest, forceful, logical style, talked
to the people about the benefits of
organization among all classes and
declared that the farmer was not an
exception to the rule ; that he, too,
was getting help through this same
channel. His speech made a good
impression and no doubt that later
on results will follow. We hope to
have Brother Parker with us again
even this year.
Among the distinguished visitors
with us that day was our old friend,
Capt. B. F. White and his accom
plished daughter, Mis3 Vaughan.
Cant. White also gave us a very in
teresting and l entertaining talk,
reminiscences of his bovhood days in
the old Hawfield section. He pic
tured to the boys the old school
house of sixty-five and seventy years
ago and compared that with the mag
nificent building they were occupying
to-day. He showed to them that it
was possible for a boy in this day,
and with his surroundings, to make
more. He said the boys of to-day
had advantages never dreamed of in
his boyhood days, and urged upon
them the importance of using these
magnificent opportunities and know
something, and be something, and do
something, that would reflect credit
on their fore-fathers. You made a
good talk, Capt. White, and our
hearts were made glad because you
were with us. Don't let the watch
business bother you; it had simply
stopped; that's why we unconsciously
looked at it so often.
I was just thinking of Dr. Free
man's letter in The Progressive Far
mer two weeks ago and of his call
for strong men to lead the farmers,
etc., and I almost felt like calling
the roll again. Brother Bain, what's
the matter with the Farmers' Alii-
ance s uoctor, wnen tnmk oi
such men as John Graham, Prof.
Kilgore, C. W. Burkett, Dr. R. H.
Speight, E. L. Daughtridge, J. A.
Davis, Dr. Person, C. II. Poe, T. J.
Oldham, T. B. Parker, I. M. Green,
II., D. Edgerton, Bob Dixon, W. A,
Graham, and thousands and thou
sands of other great men now on our
roll where can you find men with
broader shoulders, better heads and
bigger hearts than these men who to
day are standing in the ranks of the
Farmers' Alliance ready to help the
farmer in anv and every way to a
higher and better plain ? If the far
mers wait for better and broader
minded men than these to lead them.
I fear they will forever be in thp.
low-grounds of well, ' simply get
left. H. M. CATES.
