When Tillman wasgiving faint and ^
qualified praise to General Hampton j
at Manning last week, one cannot foi ^
get how he. Hampton, was made to
take his scat at a public meeting |
in 1S92 we believe. No one encouraged
that act more than Tillman
and no one rejoiced more in
Hampton's defeat. Praise from such
a man comes in bad grace.
The reunion of Confederate Veterans

Wade Hampton** Farewell If

Last May.
My Comrades: I have indeed, as
Major Hart has suid, heard that Rebel
yell often before and when I heard
it from my own men, from the men
whom I had the honor to command,
I knew that we were safe. I think
it is one of the British poets who
said :
"The kites know well
The long league's swell
That bids the Romuns close."
I might paraphase this by saying:
The Yankee knew well
The Rebel yell
That made the Johnnies close.
My old heroes, I hope it never will
)e forgotten. I hope it will be trans
nitted to your children and to your
hildren's children?if not for thetn
o use, to tell how it used to ring
rom the forests of Virginia, how it
aog from (fettysburg td the west,
nd how it always told 01 men who
rsre willing to die for their southind,
to die for truth, for honor, for
lanhood, for chivalry and for a great
ause. I want you to try anfl teach
our children, your children's chilren
that ours was not a lost cause. I
ant you to tell them that we were
ghting for the right. George Washigton
was a rebel but Lee was not.
i'hen Great Britain recognized the
idependence of this country ane

reign. There were 18 independent
nd sovereign States. They founded
lis union and they had the right to
ilhdraw from it whenever they chose
> to do. We were not successful?it
i not given to mortals to command
access. You have dine more?you
ave deserved it. '
And now in your declining years
nd when mine have extended long
eyond the period allotted to man,
du, my old comrades, whom I lov
1. whom I trusted and with whom I 1
ilt as safe as I do now, 1 want to '
ly to you and all that the love you (
ave given me has been more than '
iciprocated; that all that I have 1
rer been able to do for you, for any I
le of you, or* for South Carolina, *
as been more than repaid by the 1
mors you have unsolicited conferred 1
pon me and by this the crowning 1
mors of my life. I may not see
iu again. I remember a story of '
ardinal Wolsey, who, when ready to !
tire from public iJfAwoot to the 1
>t and said :
* "O father abbot 1
n old man broken with the storms
of state. ?.
s come to lay his weary bones among
ye J
live him a little earth for charity."
That is a'l I ask of South Caeolioa
-a few feet of earth where my kinIred
for six generations are resting.
Lnd I am proud to say that one or
nore of each generation, since they
vere known in South Carolina, has
illed a bloody grave "for South Caroina.
(Applause.) I claim no credit
.'or that. Every South Carolinian
Aho was true was willing to give his
t>lood and his life for the old State.
[ am sure that I was willing to do so.
I think I can say to you, my men,
that I never turned my back upon
one of you when your faces were
turned toward the enemy. The greatest
honor I felt durirg the war was
once when 1 came upon a poor private
who was dying. I stopped beside
him and he said: "I am happy
to die fighting, and 1 am proud to die
fighting under you."
I pray God will bless you and will
give you peace and prosperity, give it
to the old State, give it to each one
of you and that you will go home and
tell your kindred that you have seer
your old comrade and that he thank*
| them through you.
The Campnigrn Opened.

Violent local storms did much damage
last Friday and Saturday from the

At Joplin, Mo., there was a destructive
tornado which killed several persons
and fatally wounded others. At

Saturday and Sunday, doing mueh
damage to p-operty and killing Two
others. Telephone und telegraph
wires were blown down.

Poor crops, low-priced cotton and
he overflowing of bottom lands are
ausing many tamers to turn their
.ttention to cattle. It is a wise confusion
they have r<ached and they
hould wisely make the change,
luch a change is a revolution and it
annot be accomplished in a day.
lie first of April in a certain town in
he upeountry a man was inquiring
or one or two good milch cows. lie
aid he knew whore there were some
'oung ones with first calves, hut
hey were so poor that they could
mrdly stand up. The owner of these
leifers was not ready to go into the
attle business. If one wishes to
aise fat cattle for beef lie should seure
a thoroughbred bull of one of
he large breeds. He should then
ceep only as many cattle as he can
eed well through the winter and up
o the first of May. Th.e cheapct
'oughagc for cattle is hay made from
iea vines and sorghum, uuless ono
las a meadow well set in good grass
hat requires no reseeding. If one
tas no winter pasture it will require
bout two tons of hay to feed a two
ir three year old cow six monfjis.
That hay will be worth about $30,
>ut the manure, if properly cared
or, will be equal to a ton of the best
commercial fertilizer. If a farmer
vishes to raise milch cows he should
jet the Jerseys or Guernseys. The
Tolstein is better suited for those
vho sell the milk as they give more *
ban the other two breeds. Get the
>est breeds. Do not attempt to win4t
more than you can feed well. J)o
tot overcrowd your summer pasture.
iV'ork at this business by degrees.
Beports from various counties of
be Stat? indicate that farmers are
laying much more commercial fertilInbtruinJ
tn An Tho
neaning of that is that they are gong
to increase the cotton area. There
s no combination on the part of farners,
but there is a sort of telepathic
communication and transmission of>
nforraation?a kind of wireless intercourse
which brings them to act
ivith unanimity when it comes to
cotton. All the cotton farmers are
ioing just what the farmers of this
State are. They figure it out that it
Is cheaper to make 9 cent cotton and
buy flour, bacon and corn from the
West. Let the farmers 6tick to their
plan of raising more corn and hay
than usual, even if cotton should go
to 12 cents. Look at the condition
today, More than half the farm animals
of the State are not properly
fed. Empty cribs mock their owners
as the wind whistles through the
cracks. Cattle are in poor condition.
The only hope is to raise an abundance
of grain and hay A farmer of
the State said a few days ago that he
sowed five acres of land last October
in oats, applying about 2:30 pound* p
of commercial fertilizer to the acre.
I He expected to make li>0 bushels of
loat? on the lot. The frottta, free/on
I and llooda which laRt?d continuously
-.uifi tuo.ilhs, killed the oats. About
lue utk>t of April his foreman said
that he would like to plant that fiacre
lot in cotton for he could make
three bales with the addition of a little
fert'lizer. At 8 cents that cotton
would have brought $120. The cost
would have been $713; leaving #1.3 and
I the seed net. The owner of the land
J said,''No, let it alone. It is not
! washing. Sow a bushel of pea3 to
the acre about May 2U *o June i.
You can save ten tons of hay worth
J in the barn $150, at a cost of $30.
That would give a net profit of $120.
The land would be in better condition
than if planted in cotton."
Another interesting hay problem
is proposed for those farmers who
think that cotton is the only thing
worth planting. Suppose a farmer
has a ten-acre lot which under favorable
conditions would make 10 bahs
of cotton worth at 8 cents $100. The
seed at present prices would be $75.
The cost of making and marketing
the crop would be 5 cents a pound
which would leave a net profit of
$225. The cost of a pea crop on the
same land would be about $50 including
baling. Land that would make a
bale of cotton to the acre would make
2$ tons of pea vine hay, or 25 tons on
the 10 acres, worth $15 a ton or $825
net profit. Let the farmers of the
State think on these problems.
You Will be convinced that farmers
are consumers if you will take your
stand any day at the county seat or
railway station. Yru will observe
, scores of empty wagons nwnw i?.v
' town. If anything is brought for
sale it is a little wood or a few eggs
or fowls, the latter raised by the'wo- JM H
men. They haul out guano, flour, I
bacoa. clothing, agricultural iuiple- H
Iments, shipped cabbage, canned
I goods, seed potatoes, the "cheini^oitjc.
jpare,' giucose syrup, corn, meal,
I hay, rocking chairs and baby carriages.
They expect u few bales of
cotton in the fall to pay for these
supplies. It is a rare thing to see a
farmer bring in something to sell
every time he comes to town. They
will never be able to assert their independence
until they become producers
instead of consumers. Let thetn
raise to sell. Owing to the mult!plieation
of towns there is a pretty
fair market in reach of neariy every
farmer, By making cotton the surplus
crap the farmer would be able to
i- sell something every week in the
d year.
