The speed in which some people
are traveling in the destruction of
timber is fearfn!. At the present
rate of waste it will only be a few
years before you will have to buy
] cool or haul wood from a long dis
tance. What will a poor renter do
; when he has the same or more
I rents to pay, buy wood and the
j good Lord only knows what else; at
I the present rate of wastfulness, not
only in timbers, but in crops —
careless gathering and still less care
in housing. Take the hay crop,
j There was any amount of it this
year that could have been saved
j but was thought too thin or too
much trouble to save. Then the
j weather was hot or its likely to rain,
I may loose my work. So the grass
' npened and enriches the ground
i for the tyrant and abused landlord.
Then there’s but few who gather
their corn. 1 can make from S'J
to $5 a day picking up corn behind
The cotton crop —the cash crop,
the pay our debts crop, the buy us
bread and meat crop, the king crop
—is badly neglected —left in the
field sometimes until it’s stained,
ginned and tossed about in half
enough bagging, and takes rain and
sun, sleet and snow —a remnant
left in the field because the weather
gets cold and bolls are sharp and
the fingers get sore in the pickings,
and before you will pick it move to
another tyrant and get on a credit
what you could have paid cash for
if you had saved the cotton, hay
Then some are forced to live in
very poor houses. First, because
the landlord is too close or stingy
to build, and if he did the tenants
would destroy or not take care of
improvements. One tenant burns
up a garden fence, another a lot,
and a third fails to work around
the ends of his rows; lets the weeds
and briars creep on him from every
quarter of the globe. Another lets
terraces go and water runs at radom
over shallow plowed land and soon
you have all bottom land, for the
ton is gone to fill creeks and ditches,
clog the water channels and make
good bottom land a boggy sickly
The tenant is not to carry all the
burden, for an honest landlord
can watch after his farm, make
such contracts as they can easily
comply with, then visit the farm
often, encourage the tenant by kind
words and in gentle manner point
out the errors; pay him a little
extra to do something he ought to
do without pay. It will move most
men to do their part. Stay away*
from them if your temper is up,
less you speak in a tone that belies
your true feeling.

’Tis funny how some young men
take the advantage of some good
girls who belong to the church and
trying to live right. Recently they
went about among one class invit
ing them to a dance and to another
set inviting them to the same place
to a pound supper. 'They knew
how to get the girls they wanted,
and knowing, too, the nature of
gay young hearts for fun would not
leave even a dance, if they did 1k?-
long to the church. I am sorry
you girls were not brave an'd sacri
ficing enough to go home when you
are thus imposed upon. This with
love to everybody and respect to
whom it is due. Tyrant.
