What a Leon County Farmer Says of the
No Fence Law.
Dr. J. A. Andrews, of Leon county,
was in town yesterday.
‘Ilow does the no fence law work
in Leon county?” the reporter asked
“It is working well. While there
was some opposition to it at the start,
I know of only two— possibly three-
men in our section of the county op
posed to it. I am satisfied that when
it is tested, as is being done, they, too,
will be no fence men.”
“How do the colored tenants and
laborers stand on the question?” we
asked the doctor.
They, too, like many whites, were
opposed to the law, but I am satisfied
that after the law has been tested,they
will see the benefits and approve it."
“IVliat about the report that Leon
county is to build a division fence
along the state line*”
“I am glad you asked me that ques
tion," said the doctor. “I am one of
the county comm ssioners of Leon
county,and can give you definite infor
mation on that point. 'I here is a mis
taken idea among the farmers on the
Georgia side of the line about this
matter. The law does not require
Leon county to fence against Georgia.
It only requires that we fence against
surrounding counties in Florida. It
will thus be seen that farmers in Geor
gia, along the line, must fence in their
stock, or adopt some other method ot
keeping their stock from raiding on
tlie no lence section across in Florida,
i his is a strong argument in favor of
your people, especially those living
along the line, adopting the no fence
law, as they will have to fence their
stock in to keep them from intruding
on us, whether that section of Thomas
county adopts the no fence law or
We submit these views of Dr. An
drews for the consideration of the
planters, and all oihers interested, liv
ing south of the railroad. They will
do well to study them.

‘Experience” on the No-Fence Law-
Some Sound Sense.
Ed. Times-Enterprise: The next
question to be considered is, what is
the greatest draw-back that Thomas
county has to contend with ? I answer
fences.” I own a little farm. I hire
a negro to help me, and he and I and
my children work the farm, and if it
were not for my neighbors’ cows and
hogs and goats, I could, with proper
energy, industry and care, make
enough one year.to support my family
But I wake up in the morning, after
a hard day’s work, and find six cows
and ten hogs in my field. A poor old
starved cow, r.ot worth a dollar, has
thrown down the fence and let in all
the cows and hogs in the neighbor
hood, and the bread and meat I ex
pected to make for the support of my
family the next year, is gone and lost.
When I remonstrate with my neigh
bor about the trespass of his cattle on
my place, he says, “You did not have
the right sort of a fence—it was not so
high, and was not so wide between the
rails, as the law requires.”
What can I do but submit to my
loss and grieve over the law which
subjects the fruits of my labru to such
a terribly disaster. Is it any wonder
that the farming community arrays
itself against other classes, when these
other classes usurp all the offices which
constitute government, and cither re
fuse or decline to make such laws as
will most effectually protect them?
But what can you say of a farmer or
land owner in your county who, in a
contest on this question, votes “lor
fence ?”. Echo answers what?
Suppose I own a farm on which
there is a hundred acres of open land.
I want to divide it into four fields of
twenly-five acres each—one for corn,
one for cotton, one for oats and one for
pasture. Every hundred yards of fence
will require four hundred rails. I have
to furnish the timber and pay a dollar
a hundred for cutting, splitting and
putting up the rails.
Now let us see what it is going to
cost me. The piece of land is a square,
that makes it seven hundred yards
long on each side. Add the four sides
together, and that makes twenty eight
hundred yards. At four hundred
rails to each hundred yards, it will
take a hundred and twelve dollars to
make the outside fence. Then, if I
divide it into four fields, I will have to
run two cross fences, one north and
south nnd the other east and west, and
each of these strings of fence will take
twenty-eight hundred rails, making in
the aggregate five thousand six bun
dred rails, which, at a dollar a bun
dred, is fifty-six dollars. Now add the
money it takes to make the outside
fenne, to what it takes to make the
cross fences, nud you will sec that I
am out one hundred and sixty-eight
dollars, and what for? Just to keep
about twenty dollars worth of old, no
account cows and a dozen razor-hacked
hogs from eating me out of house aud
Again, I reckon it is not extrava
gant to say, that every year one rail
out of ten will get broke or rot, or in
such condition as will require a new
one. That will he ten per cent, an
nually, I will have to pay on my in
vestment iu rails.' Now, if I could
save that ten per cent, mid spend it in
sending my children to school, how
much better off I would be. But,
“Oh no,” says the fence man by his
opposition to the no-fence law, “I
can’t allow you to save your crop, aud
educate your childreu at the expense
of old Brindle,” (who has had one horn
knocked oil’ when I was driving her
out of the field), “aud my old spotted
sow,” (whose left ear was torn oil by
the dogs when she was run out of the
What next after this? The first
thing I know, along comes an officer
and tells me: “I have a warrant for
you.” “What for?” says I. “Ma
licious mischief,” says lie. “The other
day, in driving some cows nnd hogs
out of your corn field, you, or some of
your folks, knocked the horn off a
cow, and your dogs bit off a sow’s ear,
and Timothy Scruggs has sued out a
warrant for you before judge Mitch
Well, I go to town and get some
body to go my security for my appear
ance at court next Monday. When
court comes, and Judge Mitchell takes
his seat oh the bench, Tom Hop
kins, county solicitor, presents an ac
cusation or indictment against me
for malicious mischief, swears his
witnesses, puts them on the stand,
aud proves by one, that at or.c place
my fence was only four feet and ten
inches high, and hv another, proves
that within less than three feet from
the ground there was a place where
there was a crack in the fence, where
the rails were more than four inches
apart. The Judge finds me guilty,
and I am sentenced to pny a small
fine and the costs.
Mr.,’ Editor, do you know what
court costs arc ? If not, you better
study up the question. Some day it
may be important for you to know.
I don’t know that I am exactly cor
rect about the rail fence matter, but I
think I am so nearly so as to show
the correctness nnd force of the idea
I wish to present. I have other
ideas on the fence question which I
may pieseut next week.

Colonel Bailey was in the city yes

ville is deeply interested in a direct
route to a good harbor on the Gulf,

these. Let us leave nothing undone
to secure thsse advantages. With
this line to Carrabellc, and it extended
on to Augusta, Thomasville would be
out ol the woods. Both arc within
our reach. But railroads have quit
running rough shod over places;
