"Experience” Indulges in Some Observa
tions—The Two-Horse Farmer
Still on Deck.
Editor Times-Enterprise :
I have learned from observation
that fishing is not a profitable occupa
tion for a two-horse farmer. There is
no bargain between him and tho grass
in the fields—that it will not grow
while he fishes—that the grass will re
spect. He may apply to Bill Bibb
or Burt Madre for a warrant against
the grnss for malicious mischief, hut
nine times out of ten they decide in
favor of the grass, and make the fish
ing farmer pay the cost, unless he will
send them a mess of fish. Tho mess
of fish may make them put off the case
for a month or two; hut when the far
mer comes to wind up tho case, it al
ways turns out the cost falls on him,
and the grass is happy and grows
right along as though nothing had
happened—and tho farmer is inter
viewed by Jim Kottmnn. v
I have also observed that the two-
horse farmer has very considerable
business in town about three days in
every week, and lest he may not get
there in time he has early breakfast
in the morning and hurries off, and
gets there just about the lime the
stoics open. Tho man he says lie
wants to see, docs not come on . the
streets till nine or ten o’clock. By
this time the poor farmer’s patience is
worn out, and the man lie wants to
ice is moving about on tho streets at
a speed which induces the belief that
lie is on the way to a fire. The farmer
says to himself, “1 won’t bother him
to-day, as ho seems so busy, but I will
come again to-morrow or next "day.”
Then he. takes a glass or two of beer
at Balfour’s, or something else, and
gets home to late dinner. Calls his
hired help to put his horse up and feed
him, takes a nap, wakes up and says
"the day is broke anyhow,' and I will
walk about awhile, call up my hogs
and see if any more of them have the
All this is a sad thing for the far
mer, but there is a merry side to it for
the grass. The grass says to itself:
"Tho farmer has gone to town—I
will not he disturbed [to-day;" and in
between the rows, and alongside the
branch, there is a regular pic nic. The
weeds, and the grass, and the hushes,
get to gcthcc, and such a feast as they
have, not even your facile pen can
picture. The grass makes a speech,
and says; "I am like a mill, which is
no good while it stands still, therefore,
1 will continue to grow on.” The
weed says: "I am the golden rod,
soon to he the national flower and the
emblem of American greatness.” Tho
hush says: “I will spread myself like
the green hay tree, and shade the
Another thing I observe, is that
when the farmer goes to work in real
earnest lie goes away oil to the hack
side of his plantation, instead of com
mencing at the house and garden,
where his wife and children can sco
and enjoy the work he dues, and
where they can sec and build their
hopes and prospects for next year up
on a pretty little flower garden, and a
nice and beautiful garden of vege
If the poor and unfortunate little
two-horse farmer could see and appro
ciate, at its true worth, the thrill of
joy and happiness which runs through
every fibre of his over worked wife’s
heart, aiul thc smile of happiness ex
pressed in every leuture of the chil
drens’ faces, when he says or does
something for their comfort and
pleasure, he would surely lm more
particular ns to his conduct.

Ed. Times-Enterprise: Can quail,
turkeys and doer be shot October ist
without violating the game laws ?
Many think they can, while others say
the season opens Oct. 15th.
In reply to the above, we give a
synopsis of the original act, with all
amendments to date, for the protection
of game in Thomas county. The act
was passed Feb. 28, 1876. Under
this act it was unlawful to kill deer be
tween Sept, ist and Feb. ist; turkeys
or partridges between March ist and
Oct. 15th. This act was amended
Feb. 13th, 1877, changing the period
ot protection of deer between the rst
of Oct. and ist of March; turkeys and
partridges between April ist and Oct.
ist; since which there has been no
change as to time. The act was
amended Oct. and, 1889, by making
possession of any of the game,protect
ed in the original act during the close
of season,prima facia evidence ofguilt,
and by making it unlawful to- take
from the nests or destroy the eggs ot
turkeys or partridges. The last amend
ment was passed Sept. 30, 1881, mak
ing unlawful the killing of more than
twenty-five quails in one day by one
person. We think that the difference
of opinion as to correct dates of open
and close seasons, resulted from the
fact that the amendment of Feb. 13U1,
1877, changing the dates in the origi
nal act had never been indexed. It
can, however, be ioencl in the acts of
the general assembly of that year, pp.
