"Farmer Tillunan's" Charges do not
Apply to Darlington County, Next.
If we understand what Farmer
Tillman is driving at he is endenv
oring first to persuade the farmers to
organize and form regular clubs; sec
ondly, to show them the necessity
for an agricultural college; and
thirdly to call their attention to ex
isting abuses in the State and county
governments. He is right when he
urges the farmers to organize and to
hold regular meetings. Lawyers,
doctors and men of other callings
have formed themselves into socie
ties and meet at stated periods to
exchange views and discuss such
subjects as are calculated to advance
their several interests. If these men
find this profitable, how much the more
will it prove so to the agriculturalists,
to whom an interchange of views and
experience and a comparison of ideas
has always been of such inestimable
advantage. Let the farmers form
these clubs, they will undoubtedly be
benefitted thereby.
As to the second proposition, all
we have to say is that if the farmers
want a separate agricultural college,
they ought to have it.
Mr. Tillman's third object is to
call attention to existing abuses in
the State and county governments.
Here; in our, opinion, he is at fault.
His abuses are not "existing," but
"imaginary." In speaking to the
farmers of )arlington, he tells them
that there is some extravagance
somewhere in county affairs;,if by this
statement he referred to counties
other than this one, there would have
been no use in his making the re
mark, as it would have been of nto
interest to a body of Darlington
farmers. So, for fear lest Darlington,
by silence on our part, .e included
in this sweeping assertion, it be
comes incumbent upon us to show
whether the statement which has
been made applies to our county.
The closest examination will fail to
show extravagance anywhere in the
management of our county affairs.
Our taxes are ?ot "almost es high as
they were in radical times." It must
be remembered that taxes are iigi'er
in Edgefteld than they are here. Mr.
Tillman should carefully ttiserini
nate between the county of Darling
ton and the county of Edgefield.. If'
his "abuses" exist in Edgefield, he
ought to stay there and look after
them; they don't exist here. Th.
statement that you can "hardly get
the county commissioners to fix the
bridges," may' be true of Edgefield;
it does not apply to Darlington ; our
county commissioners are all eflicient
men, and they do their duty well.
The audience at Lydia knew this to
be the case; so that portion of Mr.
Tillman's talk was rather coldly re
ceived; as also was the statement
which he made about the Trial Jus
tices "down his way." It may be
true that the Edgefield Trial ,Justiccs
"hunt up all the little trilling assault
and battery cases they can find so as
to get costs,"; it is not true as re
gards Darlington. But one should
not be surprised at this statement,
for .Judges, both resident andl itineri
ant, appear to act queerly ini that
portion of the world. Didn't Mi'.
Tillman tell us about a C,ircuit J1udlge
who allowed the Court proceed:ings
to be delayed in ordler that two meni
might "go bird hunting?" If they (ho
things that way where he lives,"there's
no p)lace like home," for this reform
er, and lhe was correct when lie told
us at Lydia that "he left home at
grieat inconvenience." IIe couild
have remained at home and f'ountd
plenty to do. WVhy, to put a stop to
the extravagance in county affairs in
Edgefleld;to make the county com.
missioners do their duty; to prevent
unjust persecution on the pa*rt of
the Trial Justices; andl to see that the
Judges don't get too indolent anid
Indulgent when they reach that scc
tion; to accompili all this would oc
cupy, it would seem the whole of'
"Moses' " time and attention for
several years to come. Let him dn(e
vote himself to this good work.
From his statements there would up
pear to be much room for reform in
Edgefield; there is none here. if lie
is bent upon doijng charitable aicts,
let him remember that home is the
place for charity to begin, amnd from
his own account "there is 1no place
like home," for him to work upon01.
The farmers in D)arlington, ini coim
mon with the rest of' mankindl, desire
to be better off in worldly goods, and
they should make ev'ery effort to be
come so. but they are not "imipover..
Ished." D)oes thme assertion that the
farmers heretofore ini the Legislature
were "bobtailed," farmers, and that
the lawyers "had them in thieirm pock

CoL.c:alm, S. C., Sept. 2d.--I have
just seen the good-natured lecture of
my friend of the Greenville News,
copied in the Newberry Observer, on
the use of a certain little English
word. I accept his kindly advice in
the same spirit in which it was intend.
ed. But let mhe supposc a case to
him, in which the use of the objec
tionable word might be permissible.
Suppose, brother Williams, that
you had a friend for whom you enter
tained the highe-t respeet and es.
teem, and wi'h whom you had long
been intimately and pleasantly as
sociated, should violently assail other
f'riends with whom you were even
more intimately cot'nected, and
chirged that they had not discharged
their public duties to the State with
fidelity, faithfulness and ability; sup
posc, that while knowing that your
friend was m:;staketn, you should, in
the fe'c of the adiv3rsc opinion of
your best friends, time and again,
give him credit for pire and honor
alale motives, suppose you should
continue to do this although you re.
alize that iI do"ing so you were losing
to some extent, the good opinion of.
other friends, whose friendship you
appreciated, and suppoao you had
endeavored to do the utmost justice
to this particular friend, in public
and private, and after all that you
had conscien tiously (one, your sup
posed friend should say, in a widely
circuIatel newspaper, that you had
"sold your principles for place;"
that you were "ait employee who had
sacrificed your principles for an in
significatt pulic pos;tion,' thait you
had indulged in "insinuations, inuen
docs, &c., calculated to do him an in
jury;' that you had "prostituted your
position a: a journalist;'' and had
"'requcietly repeated lying rumors
concerning hum; and suppose that
yOU kiew that not one of the charges
were true, do you not think that un
der these circumstances the use of
the word justifiable? If' so then
no one could be censured by you for
using it in such a case, and if not,
then you must contend that the word
should be stricken 'rom the diction
ary of' the English language as there
would, certainly, never be an occa
sion when its use would be appro
priate. I al itn full accord with you,
that suc;h an expression shiould never
be used except "to repel an attack
upon personal character," and if the
facts in the case I have supposed,
were such as I have stated, you must
admit that they constitute "an attack
upon personal character." A gen
tieman would, of course, regret being
placed in such a position as I have
Supposed, but no tman can expect to

A Few Words to School Gtirls.
nY it. R.
Just now, as our girls in towns and
country are starting to school, I cast
anxious looks after them and often
wonder if their real acquirements are
worth the ready cash drawn from the
pockets of the parents. When your
little girl gets large enough to put on
womanly airs, the question as to what
she shall learn will conic home to
you. There is a great difference in
women, little as some people may
think of the matter. Two of my
friends had unequal advantages in
early life. One had schools and
music and many opportunities for
her improvement. 11er mindl seemed
to stop development about the time
her body rounded out into womanly
form. True she went into society
and was popular and could make
herself pleasant and agreeable, but it
was all done in a cut and dried sort of
way. There was no apparent devel
opmnent of mind two or three years
after she was grown. Marriage fol
lowed, with its household duties, and
to-day this friend, with leisure and
opportunities. never seems to have
a thought beyond the daily require
ments of her home life. Bcevolent
and liberal ideas never startle her.
When she calls on you, her conver
sat;on consists ot the neighhorhoocl
gossip, facts about her housekeep
in , her troublei and family ail.
ments. She never gives you an idea
or makes suggestions that start your
b:ain and emotions to work like a
steam engine. She is very common
place with fair natural endowment
and fine opportunities. The other
friend had a sort of hard time in her
girlhood. For various reasons she
could not go to school regularly and
when she arrived at womanhood she
felt that she knew little and she
was backward in company. She
could not "run on" by the hour, as
s,)me of her acquaintances could.
But when one "cornered her," she
showed evident signs of thought.
She had opinions and was bold
enough to express them. There may
have been a little awkwardness in
her manners, but there was no fool
ishness about her. Another rather
peculiar phase of her character was
that she preferred to talk to a sensi
ble, well-informed woman rather than
to one of your smart, youg society
men. Wherever she went, whether
to church, picnic or social gathering,
she learned something. Each day
found her knowing a little more than
she did the (lay before. Years p)assedl
on and to-day she would impress
stran)gers as a well eduncated woman,
although she has no diplomna care
fully p)ut away and no graduating
essay written by some one else. She
is looked upj to as knowing some thing
andl her opiniong is often asked, or
her taste in literary matters con.
suIted. 11cr old1 time modesty still
clings to her and she would blush
like a girl if one should give her the
praisc due for earnest and success
t'ul effort at self-imnprovemenmt. Now
one of Lhese women, withi her' diplonma
and medals, is uneducated and with.
out any influence in liter'ary circles.
If~ some farmer were suddenly to ask
her to suggest a hial' (dozen goodl
books f'or her children, she would be
as blank as if she was asked to ex.
plain the thories of earthquakes. TIhe
other woman is edlucated. She knows
how to get up information on newci
subjects. She keeps apa1ce with the
mor'al, social and economic (questions
of the (lay. She k'mows how to use n
dlictionary, encyclopedia or lHile
concor'dancee. W lhen girls are thrtown
with hem' f'or an evening, or a day or
two they go away' wit.h their thoughts
quickened andl their' ambition stirired.
'T'he dlifl(rence in thle character o1
these persons begani wheni they' were
small. One learnemd 1o take aL stitela

little lhungs ; one i'eadh carefhully) and(

ing woman, without force of characte
and without good influence. No
can you afford to be a mere cipher i

elements of leadership in you, an
altogether too weak to make a goo

Soiling Cattle and Pasturage.
Soiling cattle is feeding them it
their lots or stalls with green fooi
cut in season and furnished to them
This plan obtains in towns and wher
land is scarce and high. When fari
ing lands rise to $50 and $75 ai
acre, the farmer cannot afford to de
vote many acres to a pasture. Fo
soiling purposes, rye, barley and clc
ver conic in earliest, and in our cli
mate one can begin on these by th
middle of April. Then corn, pea
and the millet family follow. A suc
cession of these crops is planted si
that, from early spring until a killin,
frost, there may be an abundance o
green food unles, a protractei
drought prevails. In the Piedmoni
belt where land is cheap it would b
better for our farmcrs to combin
soiling with limited pasturage. Whei
one fences up about fifty acres c
gullies, stones. old field pines, with
branch running through, and calls i
a pasture, it shows clearly that he doe
-not understand the meaning or fore
of the word. When unlimited lan
is owned, with a fair proportion o
swamp area, a good pasture may b
secured in all sorts of weather, hu
precious little milk and butter com
from such pastures. Small lots jr
diciously set in grass near the stable
will do much more good than thes
immense enclosares. Clover an
orchard grass mixed make a fin
early pasture which will give ou
about the first of July. Then ai
acre or two in Bermuda grass wil
carry the stock till frost. A lot tha
is half bottom land well set in Bei
muda will prove most valuable. On
advantage of this is that milk iai
butter made from this are alway
sweet and uniform in taste. Whe
milch cowvs have a large range, on
withL well cultivated taste can tell b
the milk when the rag wveedl senso
begins, or wheni thA,,cows have bee
eating the woo)ds mushrooms. Smnal
cultivated p)astures, supp)lemente
with soiling, will secure milk of un
form flow andl quality. It is not to
late to sow rye and barley on ric
lots. It will come wvell if sown t
the middle of October. Four acre
of pasture, well caredl for, will sur
por't a half (dozeni cattle from April
November, p)rovided y'ou supplemn
this with two acres of crops for soi
ing purposes. It will also tuarnis
pasturage and green food for two
three horses or mules. If the mnil
and butter of our country could b
(oubled the bacon bills would b.
much cut dIown, the quantity an
quality of beef would be increase
and numerous lots near the stable
would be madec very rich.-Carolin

e Afterthe Revival-What?
It does not take one, gifted with p
1 phetic power, to foresee that many 1
t sons who go into the church duri
revival seasons will soon drop ha
into the old ways and habits. T
world is pulling at them and heggi
them to return to the old manter of I
and many of the established chur
members give them a push. Fi
of them take hold of the new mme
bers with a firm grip as though th
intended to make their new relatio
tihe inost pleasantt and helpful pos
ble. The pastors of churches, eith
for want of time, or because they
not understand the true work of
s pastor often fail just after a I
meeting. They seem to think Li
r have done their duty when th
break themselves down and gro
r hoarse in a few weeks' revival, a:
finish up by writing a letter to th
church paper, giving the results
the meeting with mnathemiatic
exactness. 'hey remi nd one
8t sheep owner, who would brii

Y right and watch over it until t!

would then announce to his neiLe

turn and find fifty large, 'at., vol
