On last Wednesday night, at about
ten o’clock, the gin bouse and machin
ery of Mr. Willie Appleby was dis
covered to he on fire, and the whole
concern was burnt up and is an entire
loss. The machinery was located at
his father’s, Mr. 11. C. Appleby, on the
Gainesville road, about six miles from
here. The plant consisted of a gin,
press and engine, and there was a saw
mill attached, which was also burned.
It i8 supposed that the fire originated
from the engine, although it was located
at least a hundred feet from the gin
house. There was five bale3 of seed
cotton and about four thousand bushels
of cotton seed burnt up. Nothing was
saved ; even the engine was ruined.
The property lias been in operation
several years, and was put up bv
Hugh and Willie Appleby sometime
ago. Hugh sold his interest to Mr.
Glenn, and Glenn and Appleby have
been running it the present season,
until about two weeks ago Mr.
Willie Appleb}' bought Mr. Glenn’s
interest and owned the whole concern
when it was burnt. The loss is a heavy
one to Mr. Appleby, who is a hard
working. Industrious young man. who,
owing to the loss of a leg several years
ago, is hardly able to contend with
the ups and downs of a farmer’s life.
As usual, there was no insurance on
the property, and Mr. Appleby has
lost the hard earnings of his life,
gained in an unequal struggle.

ing, the 6th instant, Hon. W. W. Trice
and Mr. li. E. Thrasher had a difficul
ty. which grew out of the fact that Mr.
Thrasher appeared as a witness in a
case before the court against Price.
The police interfered and succeeded in
keeping the belligerents apart for the
time. Mr. Thrasher then went imme
diately home and armed himself with
a pistol, and when Trice passed he
stopped him and began firing at him.
Mr. Trice was fired at by Thrasher four
times, two shots taking effect, one ball
lodged in the left leg of Mr. Trice,
while the other entered the right leg,
both below the knees. Dr. Richardson
was promptly summoned and probed
for the ball in the left leg but failed to
find it at first, but extracted it in a sub
sequent search, the other ball went
through the leg. While the wounds arc
serious, yet they are not considered
necessarily fatal, and at last accounts
the patient was doing well.

not get there, but after lie was carried
he did pretty good work. Cotton is

of our farmers are gathering corn, and
I believe there will be nearly enough
made in this District to do our people.
It is a great deal better than we once
thought it could be.
Some few arc sowing oats and many
others are wanting seed. It appears
that they are going to be scarce and
Wheat sowing has not yet com
menced, except wild wheat. I heard
a young man say the other day that
he had sown a fine crop of it, and now
he is reaping. A few others arc sow
ing wild oats, they say, and probably
they will also soon be reaping their
reward. I don't know, Mr. Editor,
how this wild wheat and oat business
pays these days, but I am very sure
it did not pay any per cent, on the
capital stock a few years ago, when 1
was a boy, or a young man, as the
case may have been. I went into the
business with several others, as I
thought, and as they said, it would
pay. So we went into it with a vim.
and tried it snlllcicntly. Now, I tell
you, if there was an3 r money in it, we
never got it—it went somewhere else.
It reminds me of a cotton making
speculation, where a fellow buys his
guano, and then buys corn, fodder.
Hour, bacon, wheat bran, ripper plows,
harrows, cotton choppers and sulky
plows, and then, besides all mention
ed, he gets everything else he can
think of, and gets them all on time un

them by raising cotton. Nearly all
the land is put in cotton, and every
hand is in a push from Jamiary to
December, and when settling time

oats, or carrying water from the creek

and as good and quiet citizens, who
are trying to make an honest living
and be in peace with all mankind.
We are going in for wheat and oats
all we can over here. We think it
will be a good thing for us and the
balance of mankind to make all the
small grain possible next year, as it
is a splendid production for man and
beast to subsist upon.
Apple Valley is still improving. Mr.
Shirley has built two houses, Mr. W.
Matthews has put himself up a very
good one, and Mr. Richey is building.
Messrs. I). M. Nix & Bro. arc getting
in anew stock of goods, and Morgan
is happy when those pretty girls comes
to do their trading. James Taylor
now occupies and runs the shop with
out a partner. I think James would
like to form a partnership, but not of
the masculine gender. I don’t blame
James for that; he is about right. I
would have a partnership, but it should
not be a fellowship.

found Charlie, Alhon and Willie on

tion. to clean the storm cotton.
Well, people are getting so smart in
this day and time that they can make
nearly anything they want, and there
is anew wa}' and a better way now
for everything, I believe, except court
ing ; I don’t know as there has been
much change in that. Perhaps there
is a little more style and putting on
airs ; a littie more of Shakspeare, By
ron and Moore repeated, but what of
all that? Courting is courting.
A few days ago I saw a young man
riding along the road singing, in a low
tone, “I’m Nobody's Darling.” In a
little while after that I saw him seated
beside a beautiful young lady, and the
thought then came into my mind that
he is somebody’s darling now, or at
least he thinks so.
Dave and Dock Hancock passed

were after a cotton cleaner, and were
fortunate enough to get one. I pre

they are thorough business men.
