Cnor iiErOKTS.?The Agricultural
Department has received 239 special
reports from different sections of the
Slate, in regard to the crop prospect.
It is estimated that only 7S per cent,
of the spring planting is completed by
1st May, while this year it was up to
8o per cent., showing an advance of
7 per cent, over average years. From
these reports it seems that there has
been a decrease of 8 per cent, in the
average of cotton planted, ond a decrease
of 13 per cent in the amount of
commercial fertilizers used, while 32
per cent, of the crop has been fertilized L
by home raised manure. The corn
prospect is better than for a number
of years. A larger acreage has been
planted, and more attention has been
paid to fertilizing corn lands.
Of the entire crop, 55 per cent has
been fertilized, while only 3 per cent,
of this has been done with commercial
manures. The stand is reported s
as 93, and the general condition S7.
"What is reported as better than last
year, still it- was injured greatly by
the severe winter. The condition is

this year will exceed that of last year
about 15 per cent. There has been an
increase of 13 per cent, in the acreage
planted in cane, and this crop is
reported in excellent condition.
Labor is reported as plentiful and efficient.
Upon the whole, the report of the
condition of the crop will compare
favorably with any year for a number
of years past, and superior to any in
the last few years. The farmers de

earnest wish that their highest anticipations
in this rcspect will be realized.

Messrs. Editors: It affords your
correspondent great pleasure to read
the able articles contributed to your
paper from different sections of our
county, and especially from Morris
Creek, but not having been favored
with anything from him lately, nor
from any one else from this section, I
hope you will allow me a short space
in your columns in which to give vent
to a few crude ideas and observations.
viz.: I firmly believe our county is in
better shape, from a business standpoint,
than it has been for several
years. More farmers are terracing
their lands, getting better stock and
cattle, planting a greater variety of
crops, thereby raising more of the
necessaries of life, and in very way
diversifying their business than they
have since the war, I am sure I have

a Grand Success.
Messrs. Editors: The annual picnic
at Catawba Falls, on the first Saturday

Leaving town on the evening before
lor fear of disappointing the people,
your correspondent, in company with
a prominent member of the B. P. U.,
likewise distinguished for his splendid
personal appearance, set out upon the
not unpleasunt pilgrimage. Once on
the way, we confidentially admitted
to each other that we were troubled
with the fear of being on the traditional
"wild goose chase," but we put
' cur fears behind us and pressed forward
with an inspiration that is supposed
to belong exclusively to the
"We drove up at about sundown to
the residence of Mr. Daniel Hall, Jr.,
and we were royally entertained "for
the night. "We liked the place so well
that we stopped again on our return.

is a good place to learn how to farm.
His plantation is well kept up, and is
one of the best that we recollect to
have seen in the county. Mr. Hall
raises his own corn, wheat, oats, e?c.,
furnishes supplies to his hands, 'and
sells his cotton when he gets read}*,
and this 1*3 about the way to make
farming pay. Mr. Hall aud our readers
will pardon this digression, being
a practical farmer we natui'ally feel a
large inierest in such matters.
But to return to our journey, we
arrived at the "Falls" promptly at
about 11a. m., ready to participate in
the ceremonies of the occasion. Already
many person had preceded us,
the road near the Falls was blocked
with many vehicles, we found a place
however for ours and walked dots n to
the Catawba, a picturesque stream
that bears the name of a famous tribe
of Indians, all but a remnant of
wnicn nas aisappearea irom toe eartn.
The natural scenery of the place is
worthy of notice, indeed. In the vernacular
of young womanhood, we may
say that it is "perfectly grand." There
is something "primitive" and "primeval"
about"this rugged spot, which is
rather calculated to "impress one with
the sagacity of Solomon's observation,
"One generation goeth and another]
corr.eth, but the earth abidelh forever."
Nor are the natural surroundings of
the place wanting in the elements that
inspire poetic musings; on either side
of the river great boulders rise upon
boulders in almost perpendicular
columns to apparently inaccessible
heights. Beneath this gorge in resistless
torrents the Catawba Jlivcr
"falls." One stands upon the bank,
surveys the surrouudings, listens to
the roar of the cataract and feels like
pariphrasing Bvron's apostrophe to
the ocean: "Roll on, thou deep and
dark blue ocean," etc.

The place has a history; it was
thought once to locate here the National

some reason the project was abandoned

The people in this section believe
that they have a bonanza in the great
water power of the Catawba, and they
are probably right. The law of the
pressure of population upon the means
of subsistence is no respector of per-,

be solved. Tliere is power enough
here to turn the wheels of all the factories
in the Union, and the indications
now are that it will not be allowed to
slumber much longer. A part of it at
least will be utilized.
But to return to the picnic, it was as
usual a grand success. There were
"delegations" from the towns of
Chester, Kichburg, Lancaster, Camden,
Winnsboro, Blackstock and all
the surrounding country. These spent
the day climbing over the rocks and
enjoying the "falls" in the river and
on the rocks. Some "slipped up,"
some "got left," and others "got
mashed," but it will all pan out right
in the end. "We -would like to give

Edward Shephard, of JFlarrisburg, III.,
says: "Having received so much benefit
from Electric'Bitters, I feel it my duty to
let suffering humanity know it. "i lave had
a running sore on my leg for eight years;
my doctors told me I would have to" have
the hone scraped or leg amputated. I
used instead, three bottles of Electic
Bitters and seven boxes Bucklen's Arnica
Salve, and my leg is now sound and well."
Electric Bitters are sold at fifty cents a
bottle and Bucklen's Arnica Salve at
twenty-five cents per box by Mcilaster,
Brice & Ketchin. *
