1 depend on an eueuty for a «ca|MJii
lot defeu«c is fraught with danger,
aud, iu calls detcat iu the etui. No,
no, gentlemen if we would succeed,
we must rely upon our effort*, upon
our*lve» to supply the means, the
money uece»»«ry to carry our ef-
forts to a successful issue.
1 hear some saying this can not
be done. 1 say you nay, my broth-
er, it can and must be done if wc
succccd. If we have uot the cou-
rage and back-bone to eudure the
privations necessary to success, we
do not merit, ueither will we at-
taiu success. Some say, how can
this be done? Be patient and I
will auswer your question.
Let every farmer iu Greer coun-
ty who is uot materially financially
involved, sign a solemn pledge and
adhere thereto, to not buy any-
thing ou credit in 1906. I con-
fidently believe 33^3 per cent of
the Farmers' Union membership
can take this pledge and live up to
it, if they will, and then let every
farmer who is financially involved
to that extent that he caunot possi-
bly sign the foregoing pledge, bind
himself to buy nothing on credit
in the year 1907, and I confidently
believe that another 33 k3 per cent
of our membetship can, if they
will, take this pledge and live
up to it. Then we will
only have 33 Vi Fer cent .°*
our membership not on a cash basis,
now let this 33^ per cent sign a
solemn pledge that they will not
buy anything on credit in the year
1908. This they can do if they
will. Now let every one signing
the foregoing pledge also sign
pledge to use their means within
the organization to help those
members financially weak to keep
their pledge inviolate. Using all
the means financial and otherwise
inside the organization for the bene
fit of the organization, aud the
membership thereof, instead of de-
positing it in banks without inter
est and allowing the banks to loan
the same to your neighbor and
brother farmer at a usurious rate
of interest. How much better to
take the same security and loan to
your brother farmer at a reasonable
rate of interest without the inter-
vention of the banks.
Establish a code of action de-
manding a strict adherence to the
principles of honesty and integrity
in all membership dealings, there-
by maintaining a perfect confidence
throughout our organization.
tablish also a system of arbitration
for the adjustment of differences
arising among our members, with
a county board of arbitrators as a
court of appeal and make the ac-
tion thereof final.
Now gentlemen, we are well
aware that to adopt the plan here-
in set fprth will cause_ many, priva-
tions grievous be borne and can
not be put into successful opera-
tion while our people insist on
buying Spalding hacks and bug-
gies and things of like nature on
credit, and many other articles not
absolutely necessary, at present
bought on credit will have to be
taken off the "Bill of Wants." But
if we have not the nerve, backbone
and determination to do, and to en-
dure all things necessary to suc-
cess, we can not hope to succeed,
except by a very slow process; in-
deed so very slow that many, many
of the membership will become
discouraged and become a dead
weight to the progress of our or-
ganization, instead of a liveco-ope-
rative body of workers.
Now is the time for the consid-
eration that will require and en-
■ able the membership to accumulate
a working capital—a home con-
sumption supply. This can be
j done by planting the twenty-five
per cent decreased cotton acreage
; in increased gardens, pea patches,
potato patches, feed stuff elc,
; which means hog and hominy,
milk and butter, chickens, eggs etc.
i >c supply the home table, and by-
ail means let every nember sow

that within the space of tUW
years they can accumulate enough

ducted and every farmer knows
that credit is the bane of the far-
mer. This plan, if adopted will
be decidedly advantageoua to all
the business iuterests of the county.
It antagonizes none.
Let us hear from you, brethren.

Why Queen Victoria Did Not Fondle
Sir John Richard Robinson in his
"Fifty Years of Fleet Street" tells
of an amusing incident during the
visit of the Swazi deputation from the
Transvaal to England at the close of
1894. "The Swazi braves went to
Windsor and had an audience of her
majesty Queen Victoria. They were
very graciously received. One of their
number began to speak, and an in-
terpreter followed him phrase by
phrase. 'We come, O great mother,'
he said, 'to bring to you our babe.
Take him, 0 mother, to thy knees;
fold him to thy breast.' Here the
queen, half frightened, exclaimed,
'But where is the child? I don't see
him. Where is he?' 'Here, O mother,'
said the Swazi, gravely, at the same
time bringing forward a big black
about six feet high and weighing well
over 200 pounds. 'He la here.'"

Use for Young Turkeys.
It has been demonstrated that the
turkey is a fine destroyer of the boll
weevil, the tobacco worm and the to-
mato worm. They get fat on that
sort of diet and keep so with a bit of
grain thrown in once in a while and
attention to their sleeping quarters.
The boll weevil gets busy in the
spring, and so do the young turkeys.
The tomato worms are aoout the fields
at the time the young birds are i*iost
realous in satisfying an appetite that
has no bounds. The boll weevil and
the worms go into hibernation in th(
fall just about the time that there is
a demand for fat turkeys that can't

says that in Paris she noticed on a res-

helped her to two tablespoonfuls of
