Death.?Weare sorry to chronicle
the death of a very aged and estimable
lady, 2?Irs. Cynthia Stevenson, wife of
our esteemed fellow-citizen, Mr. Saml.
Stevenson. She died from the effects
of n frnr.fnrpfl limb on .Time 15th. caused
from a foil she got while walking in
her garden less than a week ago. She
had attained a ripe old age, having
passed np in the eighties, and would
probably have 'lived several "years
longer but for this sad accident. She
had but recently recovered from a
broken arm. 3Irs. S. was a member of
iNew Hope Church, and i ossessed
those Christian graccs which made her
universally esteemed. Ilsr bereaved
husband and relatives have the sympathies
of their many friends.
tnp: W. w. C. Railroad.?If !
there are any persons in the county
who have any doubt as to the completion
of the Winnsboro, Wadesboro &

refer them^-to the fact that a large
number of contracts for right of way
are now in the hands of the printer.
This certainly shows that the corporators
mean business. The contract
is couched in the usual terms emplojed
in such matters. All that is'needed is
a strong pull and a .pall altogether
to ensure its completion. The people
of Fairfield in. common with other

of corn. It is not positively known
how the fire originated. A negro
woman was ironing in the house
but whether .she started it> or
not cannot be said! Capt. Maclie was

UHE.IT AXD OATS.
! As the preparation of the land, ap!
plication of fertilizers and planting of
either is the same, many farmers, from
smallncss of yield and low price of
Hour, have discontinued the sowing of
wheat; but the oat crop being cheaper
to make with hired labor than corn as
a feed for the animals, is planted more
largely than formerly. I-will there-j
fore give my experience as to -the best
course to adopt in planting and fertilizing
for a good yield.
Cotton beinar the" money crop, the
best uplands are generally selected for
making it, and that too* poor for a
j good yield often planted in oats, which
lis an unwise policy. Believing in
j cotton seed as a "fertilizer, applied in
| the fall as early as September or Oc1
tober, for the development of stalk
| and grain the following spring would
! be exhausted previously, indnced me
| to seek information to corroborate it,
| consequently I wrote to my friend, the
I late Hon. D. Wyatt Aiken, some few
| years since, who replied, he never used
i cotton seed as a fertilizer at any time,
but planted in early fall and at sonic
,time daring the following February or
first of March had sown over them a
good amoniated fertilizer and harrowed,
as they required at that time surface
culture and manure for the
growth of stalk and development of
grain, which was always followed
by a good result. I think the best
plan to adopt with fall oats is to apply
about half the cotton seed intended to
be used as a winter fertilizer to establish
the roots well in the earth by
