Some Good Reasons Why a No Fence
Law Should Pats.
As there is being much said about
the fence question, I thought I would
offer a few thoughts myself. Let us
see what arc the facta in a nut shell:
It is a fact that stock raising in our
part of the county, as it is under the
present system, ib unprofitable, and a
curse to the farmers. Wo have not
timber enough to fence our crops s°
as to protect them from the stock.
Plank and wire fencing is too ex
pensive for the incomes from our
farms and stock,the way wenow man
If all the cows, hogs, sheep and
goats in this section were sold, they
would not pay for fencing the,crops.
Two hundred pounds of guano per
acre, will not repay the losses sustain
ed to our laud from grazing them in
summer by cattle.
One years rest to our lands, not fed
off by stock, is worth more to the
next crop, than ten bushels cotton
seed, or ‘ one hundred pounds of
guano per acre, or all the manure
you can get from the stock.
The expense and labor to land
owners and tenants, is greater than
all Itho profits on their stock, or, I
might say, equal to the losses sustain
ed by raising stock at all, under the
The proposed law means nothing
more or less than that every man may
fence his own. stock and not be
troubled with his neighbors stock.
One-lourth of our present fencing
will fence our stock,
The new law does not mean no
fence or no stock, but. that every man
can have all the fence and stock he
wants on his owp Jfifld,
Wo have not got'two acres of woods
or wire-grass pasture to each cow and
hog in. our section.
One acre of Bermuda grass, or
two acres of broom seoge, is equiva
lent to ten acres of woods pasture )
and one-quarter of an acre of cat-tail
millet, cut and fed in summer, is
equal to ten acres, of woods pasture.
So is ono acre of crab grass hay for
use in winter. Ono good cow, such
as most of us have, when well oared for,
will give milk and butter enough for
a family of five to ten persons. A
cow well fed can bo milked ten
months in the year.
All farmere can provide for them
selves and their tenants on this line,
cheaper than they cap fenco all their
crops, and not bo troubled with their
We will bo relieved of this waste of
timber, the expense of rail*, cleaning
and repairing fences,'guarding against
We can cultivate our rich fenco
rows. It saves the landlord expense,
and wives tlje tenant much labor. .
It will be better for tho poor man,
because most of thorn have but little
stock or none,and they do ail the fencing.
Deny it if you dare.
What is 'your stock worth to you
now under the present system?
Would not you be better off if you
had but two hogs and one cow to each
plow, even under the present system?
It will be better for the man who
wishes to buy land, because he need
not bny much more land than he
wishes to cultivate.
Who can object to .this plan of
action? But few men except those
who wish to fence their own land,
and turn their stock out to trouble
their neighbors; and forage on their
land, and force them to fence their
crops for the privilege of another
What is our condition now? We
have thousands of acres of land fenc
ed, or badly fenced, for the sole pur
pose of turning out strips or corners
of woods and lanes for poor stock to
roam over and hunt mischief i many
ofwhioh never did have enough to
eat, but they must hare room to rove.
Where ? On their neighbors land,
and die of corn cholera. Could the
case be worse? Scrub stock, over
stocked, never know where they are—if
is worth than to find them.
Are there not nine out of ten fami
lies in this free fenced section, who
have not had enough milk to drink,
or butter to cat, of their own raising,
at any one time, since they came into
this world ? “I mean cows milk you
know.” Or do they raise enough
meat to lost them three months of the
year, or even three weeks ?
You say you can’t have water for
stock. Have it on your own land.
Build dams and dig wells. Where
there is a will there is a way.
Now, Brother Farmers, let us go to
work, every one of.us, those who can
vote, and thoso who can’t veto, and
let us make a change. Let us have
the new law. Landlords, draw in
your fences, have pastures for your
selves and your tenants. Learn the
difference between a good fat milk
cow, and a poor one, one big fat hog
and three little shoats.
Very few men among us aro suc
ceeding in raising stock, who do not
keep them inclosed.
For these reasons and many others,
I am in favor of a change.

This splendid circus and its at
taches, left a favorable impression on
Thomosville. Should they ever
return here—especially with John
Lowlow—another big crowd will greet
them. It is a monster show. Hie
circus is fully up to the highest stand
ards attained by tho largest combine
tions on the road, while the menag
erie contains some of the rarest and
most interesting specimens of animals
in cxistance, some, the great giraffe,
for instance, heing the only specimen
on exhibition by any traveling exhi
bition in the United States. There
is enough in the combination to make
two or threo big shows. The expenses
of the show are enormous, amounting
to about 82,600 per day. There aro
three hundred attaches. Something
over two hundred of these live with
the show, eating and sleeping with it.
The side shows embrace some of the
rarest living curiosities to be found
in this or any other country. The
canvas for this monster combination,
covers three acres of ground. The
orowd, including tho agents, perform
ers, various attaches and employers,
conducted themselves with perfect
piopriety here, John Lowlow, the
Georgia cracker clown, was one of
tjip principal attractions. Chaste,
choice humor exudes from his every
pore, His toilet act is worth the price
of admission, and always bring? down
the house. His personal points and
bits are well chosen, and always
touch a popular chord. The entire
performance was exceptionally good.
He was a dull churl who didn’t get
his money’s worth. More than four
thousand witnessed tho performance
jn the afternoon, and another fine
audience greeted tho exhibition at
night Thomasvillo would be glad to
have the show hero again, in 1890.

“We started out on the evening of

the New York Central railroad, and,
of couse, Locke had to go with me.
Owing to my deformity I was treated
harshly. Fifteen times I was put off
trains between Albany and Buffalo.
Between Buffalo and Chicago, on the
Michigan Southern, I concocted a
tale of robbery, and on promise to
pay at Detroit was not molested. In
order to deceive tho officials I sent a
bogus telegram to Chicago for money.
Altogether I have been ousted from
trains lSO times. On tho Southern
roads to California I was allowed to
rido long distances. Atone time I
had to plead with an old lady with
team in my eyes not to pay my fare,
as that would spoil my chances of
winning the bet. I have had several
offers to have my fare paid, but

Helena, Mont., Oct. 29.—In The
Silver Bow county contest to-day, the
motion of the attorneys for the repub
lican, to quash the mandamus writ,
was overruled. Objection was then
made to Judge De Wolf sitting in the
ease, as he is a candidate on the
democratic ticket, the objection being
that he was an interestsd person. The
court decided that the writ should be
amended so as to relate only to ^ the
counting of the yotes for the county
officers named in the writ. The at
torneys for the republicans then inter
posed a demurrer, which was overruled,
and the board of canvss ers was direct
ed to file its answer why the vote in
ihe Tunnel precinct was not counted.
The court then adjurned.

Athens, Ga., Oct 29.—To-day the
will of the late Fcrninand Phiziny was
admitted to probate in the court of
ordinary in Clarke county.
The testatorjappointed his two sons,
Leonard and Jacob Phinizy, of Au
gusta, os his executors. It is under
stood that the will will be proved in
solemn form at the December term
ot the ordinary court. Mr. Pbinizy
left very handsome bequests to Bogg’s

Centre church, in Oglethorpe county,
on condition that these churches
shall never have organs or any other
musical instruments in the house.
Saving these legacies, ihe estate is to

has not been appraised, but it will go
considerably over a million.

Among the lower classes women
are not prized for their beauty. It
is for their strength. A lady of our

“No,” he answered, “she is very
strong and very good, but she is not
pretty. She is very ugly.” We all

choose the wives for their eons, and
they have an eye to the useful as well
as the agreeable. If the woman is
healthy and strong she is quite an

The bishops choose tho wives for

Some newspaper man, who evident-
ly believes in telling things just aa
thoy are, says (we quote from the
Gazette ot Kankakee, HI:) “Do not
swear. There is no occasion to swear
outside of a printing office. It is use
ful in proof reading and in getting
forms to press, and has also been
shown to assist in looking over the
paper when it is printed, but other
wise it is a very disgusting habit.”
