the people of tho country were so busy
gathering tlwir crops, and our merchants
so busy Htlling goods, making their re
mittances, etc., that he found it impossi
ble to get up a respectable audience, and
so abandi ned ti e idea of speaking. I
think it quite unnecessary for our candi
dates to speak in Terrell. We aro all
right here, from principle, irem interest,
from reason, and from imtinct. The op
position to the organized democracy in
this coun'y is so small that it can scarce
ly be neon with tho natural eye. There
are a few republican-struck negroes who
will vote for anybody or anything rath* r
than a good, honest democrat. And I
must admit that tlrero aro a very few per-
cons in our midst worse than the above-
such men, for instance, as voted for Tom
Hearn for tiio legislature, in our last elec
tion. But such people will exist iu all
communities, aud there's no help for it!

named Horace Monroe cut three
other negroes, Beverly Howard,

vengeance on bun.
On Tuesday morning Monroe,
who is the engineer ol Searcy's
gin, made up bis fire early in the
engine, and bad set the steam
guugo to watch. As ho was doing
so lie was startled by the report of
gun, and immediately sank lo

came he was in a dangerous con

his agony lie made signs to them
to see to the steam guage, which
was open. To the horror of the
crowd it stood at one hundred,and
would have blown the whole sur

A Trial or Skill Between nn Editor
ami u Farmer.
‘•Seems to me you have nothin’
to do,” said a farmer, walking into
the sanctum of the editor the other
“Well, I have worked on a farm
a go-.d deal in my life, and I re
gard editing a so-called bumorons
paper as harder work than plowing
corn," the editor replied.
“Oh, shucks I” said the farmer,
“if 1 didn't have nothin’ to do but
sit around and write a little and
shear a good deal, I tell ye I’d bo
bavin’ a migbty easy time.”
“I’ll tell yon what I’ll do," said
the editor. "I’ll plow corn a day
for you if you’ll write two eolumns
to-day for me.”
“Done,” cried tbe farmer.
“And I’ll bet you $10 you can’t
write two columns to-day.”
“Done again. An’I'll bet you
$10 more you can’t plow as much
as you orter."
“I take you,” the editor replied.
"What am 1 to write aboutF”
“Oh, anything, so it’s funny.
Remember now, Mr. Farmer, you
must be strictly original.”
“Never mind Mr. Editor. But
look ye. You have got ter do a
good job of corn plowing. Do it
jest like 1 would.”
Tbe editor went to the farm and
set a good hand whom be had hired
on tbo way at work plowing corn.
Tbo farmer wroto a headline whiob
read: “Killin’ Tater Bugs,” be
fore tbe editor was out of bearing.
In the evening tho editor came
into his sanctum blithe and cheer
ful. Tbe farmer Bat at the desk,
vexed and worried into anger.
“How do you feel?” asked tbe
“Used up. Hardest day’s work I
ever done, an’two lines ter show
Suro enough, be was but one line
beyond the bead, That line read:
“Killin’ tatet* hugs is funny.”
“Then I’ve won tbe wager.”
“Yes, but I reckon I've won tbe
"No, sir, I have won both. I
have plowed Bcvcral acres of corn,
and dune it well, and I’ve written
my two columns besides."
“Creation I How’d ye do it?”
“Just like you would. I hired a
man to do the plowing, and I sat
in the shade, but I wrote while I
sat there, and did not sleep as you
do. Fork over the twenty.”
The farmer paid twenty dollars
for the informalion. But tho leason
was well learned and as he went
be said : “Stranger, I wouldn’t
be an editor if I could. It looks
mighty easy, but, by Jerusalem, it
ain’t ncur so easy as sittin’ in the
•hades an' watcliin’ tber hands
plowin’corn. I’m a fool, an’yer
kin say so in ycr next papei, if yer
want to.’ And tbatiswby we write
