THE THREE ESSENTIALS.
How to Make Fanners Prosperous.
Mr. Editor: I have been
several years located in the
Easteru part of No.th Carolina,
and 1115 occupation as a survey
or has given me good oppor
tunities of noticing the quality
of the soil, the mcde of fanning,
etc., and J 10m the many advan
tages that are -offered in this
part of the State, it seems tome
there should be a much greater
d agree of prosperity.
The land is adapted to almost
all kinds of crops, and the cli
mate is one of the best in the
world, so what more does a far
1 have seen farming carried
on in many parts of the world,
but I am sorry to admit that it
is carried on in the Eastern part
of North Carolina in a most
backward and unfa' tne.-l ike
In the first place I will try
and point out what seems tome
to be ihe matter. The first
thing is, the land is not plough
ed deep enougbjis not sufficient

want of all, the -e is no stock to
Without : these three; great

gerous any length of time
Jbarm Yard Manure. The
produrtion of farm yard manute
is the greatest factor of all in
the production of crops.
After drainage and deep cul
tivation then if the manure is
applied theu there is no fear of
the result and the damage from
an excess of rain or dry weather
is almost nothing.
In order that f arm yard man
ure can te got we must have
stock, and in order to feed stock
we must grow food. So the first
thing to consider is . what can
best be grown in this climate to
Peas, beans, turuips,sweefc. po
tatoes, ensilage, etc., cm he
grown - in any quantity - and
along with plenty nf oats,wheat,
rice straw and hay will enable
a man to keep his stock all the
wiiiter in pens. Those catt'e
will make enough manure dur
ing the winter sufficient to pay
for their feed and theu you can
apply, say, 20 tons i to every
acre of cotton and if the in

is .no use trying any .other way.
Proper, warm buildings must
be erected for the stock, for a

r. Macune, President of the
National Alliance and editor of
National Economist, to be pie
sent and speak on Thursday.
We reminded him that Sampson
county had paid more to the
State Agency fund than any
other county in North Carolina,
aud now let us show him such
an exhibit as he wouli find in
no other county.
We have the numerical
strength and all that we want is
unity, manly action. Some re
fuse to unite with us, because
they ay we are a secret organi
I deny the charge of ours be
ing a secret organization. Our
by-laws and our constitution
are open to the world. Our dec
laration of principles is open to
the free inspection of all who
. ill uri. " m
win. wnen we come to our
Alliance halls to reason togeth
gether to formulate plans and
to drill, we close our doors. The
church of Christ is an organiza
tion, and some of its most effec
tive work is done in secrecy, i.
e., "when tho.u prayest enter
into thy Closet," etc. Still we
find some Christians who object
to the Alliance, because of its
secret work. I like to see a man
straight, but not so straight as
to fall over backward. Now, I
want to bo- firmly understood.
I say that a great many intelli

the part of "skulks" If we

MTho'las't lie of the jute men,"
says the National Economist,
"is to th.! effect that the cotton
baggi ng is taken from the bale

covered bales go through and on
