A HOPEFUL SIGN-
Some of our farmers lire dispos
ed to take a hopeful view of the
departure of cully to enjoy city
life. They propose to supply his
place, as far as possible, by white
labor, mid where this cannot be
done, to take hold ot the plow
themselves. The thought of such
action upon the part of our people
really makes us feel that n bright- i
<-r day liutinciiilly is soon to open
upon us. (iod speed the day
when the farmers of this county
will apply the lessons of the past
and measure up by one solid,
milted effort to the requirements
of the present in placing them
selves upon a solid basis.
The following editorial from the j
Gainesville Eagle is worthy a pc
rusal by our farmers. It they
will put it into pra. lice, we verily
believe a brighte. era will sooi.
dawn upon them :
“What is called intensive tann
ing mid the use of improved seed,
is becoming more common every
year. A few enterprising farmers,
such ns Maj. J. F. .Jones, ot
Troup ; Capt. J. C. Simmons, of
Hancock, mid others, have fully
demonstrated that it is the proper
wav. These gentlemen will only
use seed that are selected with
earc and brought up to the highest
standard of excellence, and only
plant ns much hind as they
can manure freely and work
thoroughly. The consequence
is. they make from one to
two bales of cotton to the acre,
a d corn and other produce in
proportion, on land that under
the old system yielded only one
bale to from three to live acres.—
When this method is generally
adopted by our farmers, they can
afford to make cotton at a low
price. It costs about as much to
cultivate a poor acre as a rich
one ; then why not spend the'extra
money it costs to cultivate four or
five acres to get one bale of cotton
tor good seed and fertilizers for
one acre and get two bales from
it? A farmer had better pay two
or three dollars a bushel tor pure
improved seed than to plant seed
that have been allowed to run out,
if he had them given to him. Sinh
seed si ould only be used for mak
ing comp >st. Plant good sevaKf
you have to buy them <-v< ry yuar
or two; then put in only as much
as you can work thoroughly and
fertilize heavily. This intensive
system will have to be adopted
soonei or later, then why not go
at u at once?’’

From the Augusta Chronicle we

lose Lis corn crib by tire Friday night
last. Mr. Appling was from home
and his family did not know anything
of the loss until yesterday morning as
the crib was some distance from the
dwelling. It is supposed to be the
work of an incendiary. The grass
caught on tire and would have burn

not put it out. Who it was that
stopped the fire can’t be found out

Warrenton Clipper: The Codyville
colored Baptist church, situated about
four and one half miles from town,
w as destroyed by fire on last Saturday
night. The buildiug is supposed to
Lave been set on tire, and suspicion
rested on Ben Pinson, against whom
a warrant was issued. He was arrest
ed by Deputy Sheriff Norris and gave
bond for appearance before the Su
perior court. Pinson was until re
cently a deacon of the church burned,
but a few days before the burning,
was tried for some offence ami ex
communicated. It is said that be
threatened during the progress of bis
trial to have the church burned if he
was turned out. Great excitement
prevails among the. colored people
with reference to the matter.
Hartwell Sun: D. B. Alford, of Oak
Bower brought a very curious bird to

one of its wings by a shot without
hurting it much. It measured six
feet from tip to tip of wings, has a
head as large as the largest house cat,
and a thick coat of white feathers
with small dark spots. It is not at
all vicious but will allow a person to
stroke its head, and appears to enjoy
it. Has large yellow eyes, and an ap
petite for small birds. Its legs and
feet are thickly coated with feathers.
Altogether it is the prettiest bird ue
have seen. Now let some uatura i t

it is a snow owl. It is a stranger m
