lt is said -that South Carolina is
most loyal of ail tlie States, to
Cleveland 's Administration. This
is to our mind a high compliment.
We, of South Carolina, know what
governmental extravagance means.
We, who have for moro than ten
years felt the galling bonds of mis
rule, who have in days gone by,
seen our money squandered; have
also for ten years been guided by
honest leaders Mid consequently,
as in '70 we honored Hampton and
Simpson, so now in the National
government wt' pay homage to
Cleveland, the great reformer.
While the citizens of Ashville
N. C., doubtless feel disappointed
at his veto of the bill malting un ap

fearfully common, of obtaining ap

Despite the depression in trade
and the haiti times, we see that
more railroads have been built in
the South in tho past five years
than luis ever been known before.
One Southern State has built 1200
miles of railroads in the last four
years. Railroads aid greatly in
developing a country, but these
roads must be supported. With

The speaker ls now upon the
third farm of this kind since com
ino; to Missouri, nearly twenty
yours ago. One of the pleasant
thoughts connected with each is
that in the few years he occupied
them, he more than doubled their
productive value. I remember
well the the first farm I bought for
myself in the Spring of lsftT. Meet
ing a neighbor before I had moved
my family to tia? forbidding, run
down farm of 131 acres. "Well,"
said he, "you must lie a live Yan
kee, sure; what the - arc you
going to make out of that farm?
I hear'n tell of people making' sas
safras oil, and I reckon that's what
you are up to." Another said, "I
don't see how it is these Yankees
are such poor judges of land. That
farm is too poor to sprout black
(Should my efforts here to-day
assume tho form of a personal nar
rative, please remember that, like
the private in the army, I have
only had had opportunity to take
cognizance of these things that are
immediately around me on thc lit
tle farm above referred to.)
? began a system of farming by
keeping a careful book account of
the cost of each ctop, and what it
sold for, and also with my cows,
hogs, sheep, etc. Four years taught
me I could not grow wheat for less
than .$1 per pushol; corn cost $2
per barrel ,(40 cents per bushel) to
grow it, Hay I could make and
storo in the barn for $2 per ton.
My cows averaged me $85 per head
of gross income. They consumed
most of that which I could make
tho cheapest-hay. They could
gather the grass easier than I could
grow either cora or wheat. The
cows make more and better ma
nure than any other stock, quantity
considered. This determined me
to study thc dairy business with a
view of becoming a dairyman. I
saw if I could' get more manure I
could grow mord grass, and if I had
more grass I could keep more cows
and make more niano rc."
In thc summer of 1H74 I put up a
large crop of hay, considering the
area of .the farm, and irrada as com
fortable ?heiteros I could with the
limited means at my command,
built a small dairy room, also a dog
power to do the Churning, arni I
began, Odtohcr 1st, with seven
cows. Manure was then-and ls
now-and I think ever will be. the
central or leading idea. Tho sale
of milkami butter, after supi ort
ing 11, y family (which is nota small
ono), is uued for the purpose of feed

everywhere. I carried it in my
pocket? and if I found a bare spot
The first year (titer I went dairy
ing the party who wanted to know
if I was going to make sassafras
oil had about fifteen acres of hew
land In sapling clover. It grew,
six or seven feet high and tilled
with seed. It was so rough and
stumpy the old gentleman did not
think to cut it. 1 went to bini und
told him I would give him two
bushels of clean clover seed for tr
chance to cut and thrash that
clover Held. "I don't see what
the-you will do with it; it is
so tangled and the ground ifrso
stumpy you can't see the stumps.
I'll be glad to get that or less," said
he. 1 took a mower and cut that
clover to the ground and hauled it
all to my farm and tramped off and
hauled more than two bushels of
seed per acre on an old ground-hog
machine. I got enough straw ami
chaff to bed my cows all winter
next year you ought to have soon
the elover.grow where I put that
manure. A man never gets that
kind of a bargain but once off the
same man. Finding I was making
a success of the dairy, not only by
making butter, but also in the sale
ot* milk in the local market, I de
termined to .seek a larger and more
convenient farm. The first man
who wanted to buy the farm was
the man who wanted to know if I
was going to make sassafras oil.
In the full of l?7? I bought a farm
of 803 acres for $0,700. This farm
was not as bad ns tho first, but was
in a run down condition, being sold
under a deed of trust, the party
being unable to pay either interest
Here I erected, during the sum
mer of 1N77, a largo stone barn
?0.\7() feet, with eight-foot base
ment for manure, eight-foot story
for cows, nud storage room over
head for seventy-five or eighty
tons of bay. "Yon will never get
stuff enough to fill it," was the oft
repeated remark. "It will not bold
one-half I'll raise the third year,"
was the stereotyped reply. The
third year I stacked more than
double outside I was able to store
inside. Here I had stable capacity
for forty-eight head of cows. Here
I worked up the yield of butter to
an average of 22o pounds per cow,
hay to two and a half tons per acre,
wheat to thirty bushels per acre.
I used the straw to hod the cows; I
strewed clover seed as before. My
old neighbor, J. J. Williamson, said
I just manured the ground with
In 1881 I was induced to soil this
farm for about two and a halftimes
what it cost me origi nally. Eighteen
eighty-two found nie on a larger
farm, better located, better eared
for than my first purchase, but not
so good, naturally, as the SOCOlld
having a good deal of land that
needs underdraining before it can
be brought to a high state of fer
tility. Here I pitched my tent
again and began to budd anew. I
reared a burn 60x06 feet, 20-foot
posts,9-foot stone basement under
the whole, for "manu re ; an addition
in the shape of the stem of a T, has
since been added, 20x40 feet, for
thc storage of bedding.
The barn bas a capacity for eighty
five cows, storage room in mows
above for 200 tons of hay, and over
the driveway and feed cutter, grain,
meal and bran storage for forty
to fifty tons.
The first year I filled one side, or
about 100 tons, with hay and oats;
1884, I filled both sides, or about
200 tons; 1K8?, I filled an additional
barn with 60 or 7? tons of hay.
I literally covered, in the Spring
of 188?, over fifty acres with ma
nure, producing on fifteen acres of
very thin land, too poor to grow a
firm sod before it was manured, :100
tons of sorghum which I fed to my
cows between the 2oth of August
und the 1st of January just passed.
The bagasse from the sorgo factory,
damaged bay, ide., is nil used as
bedding for the cows I am now
paying about thirty live cents per
hundred for bay to I ?cd my cows
on, not being able to get the straw.
I have not been able to got another
clover field. It is herc in tho year
just closed that, measured by* tho
same standard with which I began
-butter and calves, I have raised
the in -orno per cow from $2"> to the
magnificent sum of ?f7 1,50. I made,
In 1HH?, an average of J"?.s pounds
of butter to the cow, with a herd
that averaged seventy cows. I
have put in about two miles of tile,
and have about two miles more on
tho ground to go in OS soon as
Spring opens. Ono. acre manured
grows as mindi as throe did before.
Manure tells wherever it is spread.
An old Missouri friend visited my
dairy and spent the night with me.
In the morning I showed him
through my barns, ?aid he, "You
have splendid barns ami everything
very nice. But where the-hs
all the money to come from to pay
for it?" "Come with nie and I will
show you," said I. I led the way
to the manure cellar ?ind showed
him a pile of manure, "There,"
said I. "Well, I always knew you
thought a good deal of a little ma
nure, but I never thought you de
pended on straw that was," said
Drain tile makes good crops
where nothing but coarse grass and
weeds grew before. The dalry
buys tho tile, the dalry pays for
putting them in, I have told you it
makes the manure. It keeps the
family; it pays the interest on the
investment; it pay? for the labor;
it pays for the grain that is fed to
the cows making these large yields
of butter. The manure nmkes
larger crops. This requires niore
cows to eat thom. This makes
more feed, and so on ntl infinitum.
Who will say that the dairy i.i not
the means of improving the farm ?
I might add that by the aid of
machinery much of tho work has
been lightened and cheapened.
The harvest of 1885 I cut and stored
all my hay, and in a barn, ut a cost
of about $1 per ton.

Little Thorning Horn, was one
of the worst spoilt babieH that I
ever ?aw; and yet be grew up to
make a ?rst-rato man, anti he la a
flrpt-rot? man yet. In tho spring
of 1877, Thorning went to Oconee
County to peddle In washing ma
chined. He waa a young man, but
little parsed his majority, and
he had given his horse and buggy
and what ninney he could raise, for
tiie right to soil machines In Oconee
county. The kind of machine that
Thorning represented, wa? the little
tin funnel, so familiar now to many
people in this County, and, by the
way, the best washing machine
ever inw nted. Hut Thorning was,
perhaps, not a good agent, or per
haps the people of Ocoi.ee have
been bitten by somebody; at any
rate, they didn't take hold worth a
cent. Hut Thorlng thought he must
get his money back, so he con
tinued to ride day after day, with
a dozen tin funnels hanging to the
horn of his saddle, and barely mak
ing enough sales to pay expenses.
He at length reached a point bor
dering on despair, but determined
to make one more effort. In this
frame of mind he approached an
other residence} ami saw the old
gentleman plowing in a field, near
the house. Tho old man stopped
and walked slowly towards the
fence. When he had approached
near enough, Thorning began in his
usual style. "Old gentleman, I want
to sell you a washing machine this
morning?" The old man walked
several steps nearer, without ap
pearing to notice the remark. Then
he stopped suddenly and raised his
head and eye -, in attitude of prayer:
"LordI Lord! Lord! what ls the for
Hampton, or amy body else, to try
to do any thing for this Country, and
the like of that going on?" Hut
Thorning determined that he would
not bo baffled at the first word; so
he began to explain the nature of
invention, and at the same time to
untie one of the funnels. Hut the
old mun stopped bim. "Now, don't
untie them things, furl tell you it's
no use. I would give you five cents
for a thousand of them, and, if you
were to give them to nie ?hey
shouldn't stay on my plantation."
Then, looking the young man
straight in the eye, continued:
'.Young man, havo you got any
home?" "Yes," says Thorning, I
have." "Well, for the Lord's sake
go to lt, and stay there! I'll tell
you what I'll do. It ls now nearly
dinner time, and I'll give you your
dinner and feed your horse, and
not charge you a cent, if you'll
promise me you'll go home and go
to work and never engage in these
sort of things again." Well, lt is
needless to say that Thorning was
in no humor to trade; so ho ac
cepted the old man's offer and be
kept his promise too. Hut the right
to sell washing machines in Oconee
county still belongs to Thorning
Horn.1 was led to think of this
little joke from present surround*
j ings. This, so far, has been the
worst year that our farmer's have
ever seen. Look which ever way
yon will, the prospect is gloomy in
the extreme. In some parts of our
State the people are "ailingfor help
