Editor Danbury Reporter:
You will please allow me space
in your paper to speak a word to
the Union brethren of Old Stokes
and adjoining counties.
Brethren, the work in Old
Stokes is progressing nicely. We
are pooling nearly all of the to
bacco in most places. The
brethren mean to co-operate this
time in the sale of their products
which is the only way to obtain

turer would start a business and

asks for his product and then

usiness stand? Not one month.
And yet the farmer has been do
ing this very thing for ten years,
although he can spread his ice
cream supper with the very best
cake, cream, lemonade, for I
have had the pleasure of trying
it four times in the last month at
Young's school house, Preston
ville, Mt. Hermon and Buffalo.
At all these places we had large
crowds, enthusiastic brethren
and sisters. One sister cut cake
until she blistered her hand and
had others to help her. Boys, if
you want a good time and some
thing good to eat, come out and
join us at a Farmers' Union pic
nic. We will have one at Mead
ows, August 5, and expect to
have plenty to eat and some to
spare. Can't you come? If the
Lord will bless us in the future
we will have some money to
enjoy, for we are going to have
part of the profit of our labor,
and build us some fine houses.
We have built some already but
the other fellows have enjoyed
them'. But now we are going to
build some for us.
We will have our county pic
nic and rally at Danbury, August
12. We expect a great time.
Come all of you and bring a well
filled basket. Come early or you
might not get inside the fence.
We expect Bros. P. M. Conner,
of Danville, Va., and P. W.
Glidewell, of Reidsville, to tell
us about the good things in store
for us. Come and spend the day
in this good and social crowd of
laborers who feed and clothe the

derived from this grand organ

still that is not all. Some day (
you fellows will wake up and
find this crowd of down-trodden

ADVICE TO BOYS
STICK TO THE FARM
It Offers Unlimited Opportunities
to the Young Men of Brains and
Boys of the South, fix it firmly
in your heads that the farm is
the best place for you.
You may think you will have
to work hard on the farm. So
you will if you ever amount to
anything. The boys who are go
ing to be of use in the world
from now on, as in the past, will
have to work. Work is merely
But you do not have to work as
hard on the farm as you do in
other callings. In any other line
you are limited by the product
of your hands and your machine.
On the farm you are helped by
all the power of Nature. You
plant a grain of corn and neglect
it, and Nature will make some
thing of it. In town you plant a
something in the machine and
neglect it, and the job stops.
The machine has a limit. The
farm may have one, but nobody
ever yet found it. Who can say
that two bales is the limit of an
acre of cotton, or three bales or
four bales, or any amount? Na
ture is glad to do anything to
help you as far as you are willing
to go. But Nature helps the boy
who helps her.
In every Southern State last
summer a boy showed that it is
possible to make over a hundred
bushels of corn on an acre.
There is no secret about making
a good yield. It is a matter of
getting the ground fertile, and
of work. You are intelligent
enough to do what other boys
have done. If you have the
energy and the ambition and the
willingness to find out how the
successful boys make a hundred
bushels of corn, you can make
a hundred bushels. Y'ou can
make a bale of cotton to the acre.
You can raise a cow that will
make seven pounds of butter a
week, for cows have been known
to make three times as much
butter. The farm, you see, re
sponds to any reasonable effort
with good returns, and makes
your reward correspond with
your willingness to work.
* * *
It is not so in town. There
your wage is fixed, and you can
not make your ten-dollar job pay
you twenty dollars by increased
work, for you have to work the
limit to earn your ten.
" The farm is a place that offers
you an opportunity that is limit
ed only by yourself, and it is the
only place on earth that is so
generous. All other occupations
depend on the whims of the peo
ple. The farm depends on you
alone, therefore on the farm you
are independent and free.
* • *
Your success on the farm
means work. It means not the
work of some inefficient negro
while you sit in the shade and
direct. It means your own in
terested work. It means inter
ested, intelligent, energetic
work. Don't think work is de
basing. Work is the gift of a
generous Creator, for it is simp
ly the priviledge of doing for
yourself the acts that bring you
what you want.
The boy who drudges does not
like his work. If he likes the
work he finds a pleasure in get
ting the results it brings, then
work has ceased to be drudgery
and becomes a delight. If you
farm intelligently, your work
will be fascinating, for you will
be enthusiastic over your prog
ress. To farm intelligently you
yon. must read and watch. You
m int gst the farm bulletins from
your Slate and from Washington
and study the chemistry and
philosophy and mechanics of
* * *
In such reading and study the
farm offers the boy a liberal edu
cation, for such study broadens
his thinking powers and sets his
brain at work, which relieves his
hand and back and takes from
work much of its burden. To a
boy who reads and thinks the
farm is a wonderful educator,
for it brings the boy in touch
with the important principles of
life and of nature.
The farm boy grows up to be a
master. He is a~ master of his

The farm is the greatest in

But the boy who gets the
highest success on the farm muit
learn his trade. He must edu
cate his hands, which is the least
important, and his head, which
is the most important. He must
be a reader and a thinker. A
reader learns what other men
have learned and set down in
books. A thinker reasons out
and applies to himself what these
other men have learned for him.
When the boy learns and thinks
and works he will see that the
farm is still ready to meet him
with- unlimited opportunity, for
no man has yet found the limit
of his farm's ability to produce.
BOY KILLED IN RUP3 AY
Fourteen-Year-Old Son of mJJ 'nd
Mrs. Luther Joyce, Near • 4y
Ridge, Meets Violent Death. J
Madison, July 26. —A horrible
death occurred near Oak Grove,
in Stokes county, Friday when
the 14-year-old son of Mr. and
Mrs. Luther Joyce, was killed by
a runaway mule. The boy was
riding the mule to the house
from the field at noon when it
became frightened and threw
him, catching his foot in the
trace chain in such a manner
that he was unable to free him
self. He was dragged for a
considerable distance, his body
being beaten almost into a jelly
against stumps and trees, and he
only lived a few minutes after
being released. The mule had
to be hemmed in a fence corner
before the boy's foot was ever
gotten out of the loop in the
trace. Mr. Joyce was so over
come at the awful death of his
boy, which he witnessed, that it
was with difficulty the neighbors
restrained him from taking his
own life, we learn.
