BILL A HP'S LETTKll.
A friend writes mo from Florida that
bacon will not keep well la that climate,
and that the old settlers say it always
gets rancid. He wants to know if there
is any remedy for this. Yes, I think
so, unless hogs fattened on pinders are
different from those fattened on corn.
This reminds mo of a war story.
Iu 18G4 my wife and half a dozen
little children found refuge from the
foul invader at her father's plantation
on the upper Chattahooche river. There
was no white man there or near there
save hr old father, Judge Hutchins.
There were about a " hundred negroes,
moro than half of them too old or too
young to work. Food for our soldiers
wa3 getting scarcer every day and or
ders came that every farmer should be
tithed that is to say, he should give
up to the government agents a portion
of his corn and meat and beef cattle.
A mounted detail from the home guard
was sent out with wagons to enforce
the order and gather in the supplies.
There was nobody to resist them, for
everybody was in the army save old
men and invalids and women and chil
dren. Late one evening a company of
thirty men came to Judge Hutchins'
house aud rudely informed him that
they came for bacon and beef cattle.
The judge vry calmly told them he
had none to spare. For awhile they
parleyed with him, but finally demand
ed the key to the smokehouse. My
wife and children and two other little
grandchildren listened in fear and
anxiety. They knew that the judge
was a fearless man, but there was so
many well armed men against him, the
odds were fearful, and when he refused
to give up the key they said they would
arrest him and break down the door.
Then he pleaded with them in a
trembling voice and said to the captain :
"Here is ray daughter and her little
helpless children and hero are two oth
ers whose mother is dead and their
father is in the army. 1 have but four
sons and they are in the army. My
two sons-in-law are there. Here on
this place are fifty or sixty negroes who
are too young or too old to work, and
it is a struggle for us all to live. I am
alone and getting old. I have done
my share for the Confederacy and can
not do more. Now I know that you
can overpower me or kill me and take
away the little meat I have saved for
tiiese helpless ones, but let me tell you,
Captain, the first man who goes to that
door to break it down will be a dead
man before he can do it." His black
eyes flashed as if lit up by sparks of fire
and his voice no longer trembled. He
was desperate. Lightly he ascended
the Btaira, where he had two double
barreled guns well loaded, and planting
himself by the window that overlooked
the smokehouse, he said: "Now break
that door if you dare to," and the per
cussion went click, click. The captain
looked at the door and then at the
judge. There was an awfu! silence for
a few moments. My wife and children
heard it all and trembled. Some of
the negroes had gathered at the cabin
doora, and old Sam dared to exclaim in
a low, husky voice, "Better not bet
ter not old massa kill you kill you
The captain suddenly reconsidered.
"Come boys," said he; "it's getting
late, and there ain't no use in fighting
about a little meat. We can report the
case to headquarters and if we are or
dered back we can try it again, I
reckon." Without saying goodbye or
farewell they left.
That night about midnight the judge
called up old -Jack and Virgil, whom
h3 knew he could trust, and had the
joints of the meat and a part of the
sides carried quietly down to the old
blacksmith shop on the bank of the
river. With pick and shovel the cin
ders and earth in the old hearth were
boop excavated and a chamber fash
ioned that would hold and hide a thou
sand pounds. It was buried there and
the hearth was covered just like it had
been. Some scattering charcoal filled
in the space and some was left on top
and the black old basket placed where
it long had been. With shovel and
wheelbarrow the surplus earth was
taken down the river bank and tumbled
in and then all was quiet on the Chat
tahooche. The burial of Sir John
Moore was not more silent.
In January, 18G5, 1 joined my family
on the plantation and not long after the
judge furnished us a good mule team
aud wagon and we returned to our
home in liome. I he day before we
left his hospitable mansion he. opened
the cache and found the meat all sweet
and sound and we brought a good por
tion of it with us and it was as precious
as gold. My wife says the charcoal
purified it and kept it from tasting old
Now, then, I have answered my
friend's question. He must get up an
other civil war and hide his meat in
the hearth of an old blacksmith shop.
Eirth and charcoal are both good dis
infectants and preservers of llesh, and
if I was in Florida I would pack my
meat in charcoal, not dust, but small
crushed coal. Before putting the meat
down I would powder it from a pepper
box with borax. Borax is almost uni
versally UBed now. It is sure death to
skippers and other vermin, and a drug
giet told me that the sale of it had in
creased a thousand per cent, within the
last five years.
When my family got home we found
that it was not good to live by meat
alone and we had to send down the
river a hundred miles for a few bushels
of corn and hid it near a mill in the
country, because the outlaws and de
serters were patrolling the land and
taking everything they could find. A
good friend brought us half a bushel of
meal at a time on the sly, and so we
got along. The memory of old Row
land Bryant is still precious to us for
kindness in those days of tribulation.
It is encouraging to know that Armour
& Co. have not abolished all the smoke
houses in the land, nor drawn our home
made meat into their mighty trust
Our farmers are generally raising their
own meat and bring a good deal to
town to sell, and my wife saja that
country lard is purer and better than
any that comes from the packing
houses of the west. Our home market
is well supplied by our farmers with
almost everything that is good to eat,
Beef, pork, butter, chickens, eggs, po
tatoes, turnips, cabbages, beans and
apples are in great abundance. Of
course we can't have mutton, for the
negroes must have dogs and the candi
dates must have negro votes. I lost
eight fine Merinos in one night and
my neighbor, Mr. Dobbins, lost three
hundred in five years, and quit the
business. But with all our drawbacks,
our people are on the upgrade. Seven
cents cotton has helped greatly, and if
our farmers will cut down the acreage
still more it will bring 8 cents next
year and leave more land for wheat and
corn. The southern farmers ought to
form a mighty trust and regulate acre
age and price. Our own county could
regulate itself by organizing and com
bining with the local banks. Our aver,
age crop is 10,000 bales, and at 8 cents
a pound would bring $400,000. About
one-half of this could be carried and
held by thd m re wealthy producers.
The other 5,000 bales could get an ad
vance of G cents a pound, or $30 a bale,
from the banks on warehouse certifi
cates. This would take only $150,000
Even $25 a bale would pay the cost of
production and leave the margin for the
producer, and this would require from
the banks only $125,000. If every
county was to do this a 10.000,000 bale
crop would jump to 8 cents within sixty
days. That's the way to meet trust
with trust and defy the speculators
Why can't it be done ? Bill Ai?r.
Porto ltico Under Military Kale.
The report of Brigadier General Geo.
W. Davis, commanding the department
of Porto Rico, has been made public by
the War Department. It contains a
large amount of interesting material on
the social, commercial and political
conditions on the islands.
Gen. Davis incloses a copy of a circu
lar issued to the inhabitants of Porto
Rico, outlining the General's scheme of
military government. He calls atten
tion to the fact that he haa refrained
from making anything . that might be
construed as a promise of what ultimate
action would be taken by Congress fo:
the government of the island, but he
says that his aim has been to promote
the well-being of the people under ex
isting conditions. This he seems to
have accomplished, from the fact that
a general contentment reigns through
out the department.
Gen. Davis closes his report with a
brief statement as to the great hurri
cane of 1S99, and extends his thanks to
the War Department for the prompt aid
tendered him in caring for the destitute.
Accompanying the report is an interest
ing discussion on the government of
Porto Rico, by Major W. A. Glaseford.
Among the suggestions for ref ornr of
fered by Ma j. Gla88ford is one that a
market for sugar, coffee and tobacco is
indispensable for the well-being of the
island. He says that a reduction of
duties on Porto Rican products entering
the United States, and also on some
American products entering Porto Rico,
would facilitate the development of trade
relations between the two countries.
He suggests that a removal of the duty
on Porto Rican sugar would double the
output, and that the same increase
would doubtless take place on coffee and
tobacco. He says that it would also be
advantageous to remove the existing
duty on such machinery and its repair
parts as are used in the production of
these crops. Lumber is also an article
of prime necessity, together with build
Regarding the financial conditions,
he says that about one-half of the 5,929,
000 pesos in circulation is at present in
the hands of the individuals, and the
other half in the banks. He recom
mends the withdrawals of this currency
and the substitution for- it of United
The Cost of Politics.
.Southern Farm Magazine, Baltimore.
The cost of an average campaign has
become so great that the average man
cannot afford to hold office if he is salary-dependent.
The salary he deserves
is not sufficient to meet his bills and
to make him a living at the same time.
The people who pay the exaggerated
bills thus made, outside of the cities,
are in a great measure the farmers,
who not only suffer that ill, but who
are liable to drawbacks arising from
legislation concocted in vindictiveness
or tomfoolery by men seeking to make
fortunes at officeholding. The respon
sibility for the reduction of the crop
rests upon the farmers largely, and it is
hoped that the day is not far distant
when they will cease to allow the office
seeker to throw sand in ther eyes.
WHAT UOOD REPUTATION STANDS
in a recent criminal trial, the ac
cused persons being men of high stand
ing in the community, couiihc! for the
defense ostentatiously called high pub
lic officials to testify to their good
reputations. There was scarcely any
limit to the number of men who could
have been called to thus testify, for
without any doubt the defendants had
borne a good reputation before they
were accused of this particular crime.
The testimony respecting good reputa
tion had no ellect upon thenury be
cause there was posUive evidence of
guilt, ana in the lace oi such evidence
";ood reputation only adds to the Offense
committed. Where, however, triere is
only circumstantial evidence of guilt,
or there is doubt arising from any cir
cumstance, good reputation has great
weight ,and may turn the scales
of judgment. This is the real value of
a good reputation. It shields one from
the suspicion of wrong-doing, .and it
must be broken down by positive and
unquestioned testimony before its pos
sessor is deprived of its benefits. It is
because reputation usually corresponds
with character that it is accepted as an
answer to unproved accusations of
wrong-doing; it is because it does not
necessarily correspond with character
that it is accorded little if any weight as
against direct testimony showing it to
be a false reputation or one that has
been sacrificed. Reputations are built
up slowly, and a man is tried ih many
ways and for a long time before his fel
low men feel fully assured that he is to
be trusted, that he is in fact what he
seems to be. His credit having been
established, it cannot be swept away by
mere suspicion. It is not easy to es
tablish a false reputation in the smaller
circles of one's intimate associates, nor
can a false reputation fe long main
tained before the general public after
its character has become known to the
few. Gossip soon destroys it. But a
Ood reputation honestly earned may
be sacrificed by one criminal or dis
honoraMe act. That good name which
hau been built up by years of probity
and fair dealing may be swept away in
an instant by a single act of iishonesty.
Sometimes, also, a;man of good reputa
tion may maintain it for a long time
after his character has changed, through
concealment of his crimes; but the
moment they become known his good
reputation vanishes. Although it may
be so easily lost or sacrificed, goinl
reputation is a most valuable posses-'
sion, and every man should aim to
build it up on the sure foundation of
good character. Reputation is seldom
highly vlaued until its loss is threat
ened. Cassio had probably never
thought anything about his until, in a
moment of weukness, he sufiered mili
tary disgrace, and then he felt that he
had lost the immortal part of himself.
There are men of character who are so
careless of their good name that they
fail to establish a good reputation. They
do no evil, but their associations are of
a character to make men suspicious of
them. The young more especially
should take care not only that they
live upright lives, justifying a good
reputation, but that they avoid the ap
pearance of evil. They should not be
hypocritical, but should be careful of
appearances so that their characetrs
and reputations may alike be good.

Columns of figures are seldom inter
esting, yet I fancy the two which regis
ter the receipts and expenditures ol
the United States year by year from
1791 to the present time will, without
illuminstion, stimulate the curiosity
even of those ordinarily indifferent to
statistics. If some modern Rip Van
Winkle were to be handed this table,
which annually appears in the report
of the Secretary of the Treasury to
Congress, he would know at a glance
that in one instance, 'at least, some
great and tremendous event had hap
pened in his country s history. Be

see, also, that the Government's ordi

nually in the hundreds of millions. If,
after seeing such a picture, one were to
tell him that this country, a genera

such as the world had never seen, it
ought to occasion in his mind no sur

HOW BILL. JONES ACTED HORSE.
Doxoiio, S." C, October 31 There
died not long ago in the Donoho com
munity Bill Jones, a one-armed man.
Bill made himself famous by pulling a
plow one year, while his two boys held
onto the plow handles by "BpeHs."
That was when Bill was in hiB prime.
Bill owned a small farm, and his family
as large and expensive. Then ' just
before breaking the soil for" planting
one spring, Bill's only horse up and
died; and Bill could not buy another
horse in all the country around. 'The
people who had horses to sell told Bill
they were sorry for him; that he would
certainly have to let his familj starve.
There was no encouragement or as
sistance that he could get from his
neighbors. So poor Bill, who waa an
industrious man and a good father and
faithful husband, determined upon a
novel plan for making the crop. He
told his two boys that he would pull the
plow if they would do the plowing. The
boys ridiculed the idea and tried to
disparage their father. Then Bill Jones
hitched himself uf to a plow and the
boys ''lled" one another as their
fathfgjfpranced up and down the field,
puTung a heavy turning plow to break
the soil. The neighbors came by and
looked on in amazement. Bili would
not stop to talk to them; but the neigh
bors got in a word every time he reached
them on his rounds aud predicted that
he would not be able to pull the plow
all the spring and summer, and that the
crop would never be made and 'the
family would starve. But Bill proved
himself equal to the any horse or any
six horses in the county, and pulled the
plow every week day till the crop was
laid by. When the crop was harvested
and marketed Bill paid himself out of
debt, paid cash for a horse, bought
winter clothing for his family, laid in a
supply of provisions, and still had $100
in cash on hand. ' '
When Bill Jones died he was the rich
mau of the Donoho community and his
family lived in comfort and the boys
and girls are married off better than
