NBGIIO LABOR IN GEORGIA.
Anecdote* Thai lllaslrnte Zeal al
Nome of Ihe Black Men.
From the New York Sun.
In a private car passing through West
ern Maryland on the Baltimore and Ohio
Railroad the other day was a man who
owns th* targest peach orchard In the
world, a Michigan man who ha* grown
the lirst jxeaches In the United Slates, a
horticultural professor, who get* his coat
off when lie gels among ihe trees and
forgets all utiout his dignity and salary;
the editor of an agricultural paper and
several railroad officials. The parly had
been balking at |eaeh trees on the lojis
of West Virginia mountains planted In
place of the forest. The man with ihe big
orchard is a Connecticut Yankee who has
been trying to cover up the slate of Geor
gia with peach trees.
"How did you do about help down
South?” nskrd the Michigan man.
"Used the darkies—best people In the
world when you get 'em going properly.
1 couldn't usk for better hands." ,
"But you never employed them up
North,” said Ihe editor.
"No; w have Italians They do well, hut
I am satisfied with the Georgia labor. It's
all right. Before 1 want South 1 heard
that a tugger and a mule can do more to
raise good corn than a white man anl
two horses. That's probably so. but
there's an old darkey and a mule on my
place that I will back against a civil en
gineer for doing things straight.”
"Well, they saved me the cost of hiring
a surveyor. I'll tell you how It was My
trees are set In block*. Some of the rows
are over a mile long. 1 wanted
them straight and engaged an
engineer at 35 a day and board.
Luckily, I hired him by the day
and gave him a boy to carry the In
struments. He began work on Monday
morning running his line*. Of course,
Ihe hands watched every move he made
One of 'em was an old fellow we called
Henry Wilson. Henry had been ploughing
over some stubble field where a part of
the trees were to he planted. That night
Henry cam# up to me and says: ‘Cap'n.
how- much do you pay dat man for lookin'
through dat syp gins# and wiltin' In dat
book? They say he'a fixln' places fer you
to set out trees.' a
"'I pay him 33 a day. Henry. He'a a
surveyor to make straight line* ’
'• 'Gits all dat for Jest maktn' straight
lines'* 'Deed, Cap'n. seems to me It's
pow'ful lot o money wasted. Why, dal
ole white mule o' mine can plough a fur
row straight as he can do lt.‘
" 'l'm afraid not. llsnry,' say* I. Tt
has to he a mile long
•' 'Dal's all sight ca'n. Jest you let me
ai:d de mule try once and see If we can't.’
"Well, he'd nearly finished the stubble
and so I told him he could start In the
next morning In another part of the or
cliurd site fmm where the surveyor was
working. About noon I went over to see
how Henry was getting on snd you may
not believe It but he had actually plough
ed a furrow which did not seem to be
a foot out of the way to my eye. We af
terwards measured with Instruments an l
found It nearly atraight That waa all
the surveying 1 needed and at night I paid
the engineer and let him go. 1 asked
Henry how lie did It. 'Easy 'nuff. I Jest
gits de mule pointed de right way Den
I looks 'tween de mule's ears and gits a
point on some tree or house or shed Den
} tells de mule to go and we goes.”'
"1 can vouch for th® lines," put in th#
jirofessor. "1 have been In orchards all
the way from Lake Ontario lo Florida
and never saw trees run In stralghter
rows. Why. the superintendent ran

They rattle the fruit Into the packages,
