might have the use of the school house

A MODEL FAK2T.
Mr. Editor: It was announced in
rour paper that Major Pagan had gone
:o visit Gen. Bratton, and had let the
sveatber get out of joint. Now the
Major is at his post and the weather is
ibout as good as any farmer could desire,
and I hope to keep the white flag
lying for many months.
I made a visit to Gen. Bratton's and
iot only enjoyed a very social visit
)ut had the pleasure of seeing a "model <
arm"?a complete farm from cotton ;
ield to dairy and chicken coop.
I have never seen a crop in any respect
as good as the General now has.
[lis cotton is a "prize patch" all in one.
rhe most of his cotton is planted on
and that has been in grass, and no
ioubt well fertilized, fic has earlyslanted
cotton and that which was not
planted so early, bat all of it seems
;o be good. Of course it has all been
aore or less damaged by the rains, but
;he estimate is that the yield will be at
east a 500 pound bale to every acre
planted. I saw as fine corn ou upland
is could be made on rich bottoms, and
t was all good.
I saw a large field of kafi&r corn that
looked like it was as good as could be
made, although I'm no judge of that
iind of corn.
I saw large barns full of the finest
kind of hay made from cultivated
- """ -1? *i.
jrass, and 1 saw many an acre ui it
ready for the mower.
Now, this is not all. The General
has the finest herd of Ayreshire cattle
that can be seen in the State, besides
30ine very fine Guernseys. Any one
needing fine cattle can be suited by
calling on the General. In addition
to all this I saw about two hundred
Que sheep of the breed that makes fine
mutton. It requires a herder and
shepherd dog to care for the cattle
and sheep. In the fowl line I saw
about one hundred and fifty full blooded
game fowls, all in good condition.
Besides the farm of Gen. Bratton I
saw Mr. Ed. Noble's crop. He also
has a splendid crop of cotton, and all
in good condition. I noticed very
little damage in Mr. Noble's crop from
rot. I have not asked permission to
onblish these notices of crops, but
presume I will be excused, as I am
sure others will be benefitted by following
the good example.
Since writing the above the weather
has been fine every day, and no doubt
the General is picking cotton fast, and
I hope to hear that the caterpillar has
done hie crop no serioas damage.

Mr. Editor: I notice a bill will be
introduced at the next session of the
Legislature to incorporate the "YVizmsboro
& Fish Dam Railroad Company,
with T. D. Feaster, G. H. McMaster
and others as corporators.
I know of no railroad needed so
greatly in South Carolina as this, by
her citizens, travelers, and merchants.
Itwiil give vvmnsooro ueciucuiy me
greatest advantages of trade and travel
which can be derived from any other
railroad reaching that town. It will
run through one of the richest portions
of Fairfield county; for want of
a facility ail the trade thereof is
diverted to Columbia by the Greenville
Railroad, which is flimsy and
uncertain communication, often impassable
by destructive freshets.
Tt will "be a great stimulus to the
citizens through the section it will
pass. There is scarcely an acre of land
through which it will go but will
make a bale of cotton per acre, with
proper cultivation, and much of it
more than a bale to the acre, all of
which trade, over a large territory,
will go direct to Winnsboro.
It will moreover connect with the
Tennessee railroad, and thereby bring
vast supplies of corn, flour, beef, pork
and bacon of the very finest quality.
It will diyert the travel from so low as
Columbia and Augusta to the West
and Northwest to a great extent, lu
fact, it will be one of the best paying
railroads to the stockholders in the
State. It will open a great share oi
trade and travel from the Northwest

ray opinion, is not the main cause of
failure for the past few years. However,
that may have had something to
do with it. One of the principle
causes for the failure in the oats crop
for the past few years, I believe to be
in the time and manner of planting.

lands well, manure liberally, anil plant
in September or early in October, we
would make a good crop nine out of

little attention was given to oats. This

the unusually severe freezes of the

deterioration of the seed. In proof:

BOYS' WAGONS and
GK A. WHITE,
TXfE do not bait customers with
TV some articles at low figures,
making it necessarh for us to take advantage
of them in the prices of others.
Our plan has been to stock with
reliable goods, to buy from the most
responsible dealers at the most reasonable
weolesale price, and add a living
per cent, on everything for profit. We
try to take care of our customers as
well as ourselves, uur munu is iv
"LIVE AND LET LIVE."
We woald impress this idea on all
purchasers. If you wish a good article
you must expect to pay a good
price for it, and when you find a man
advertising that he will seud you
something fine for a little money, you
may rest assured that he is a fraud. It
is painful to know how much our people
have been humbugged by the catchpenny
advertising firms. If their
goods are so cheap how can they afford
to advertise so extensively? And why
do they, have to go so far for a customer?
It is always best to know
that your merchant is reliable before
you give your money to him. If out
people will stop sending away foi
goods in our line, ar.d patronize us, we
promise that we will take no advantage
of them, but will sell as low as
anv other house can, when quality and
' - A ? ,3
quamty are t>otn cuiisiueieu. auu.
moreover, this course will enable us tc
increase our stock so that yon wil
have a more interesting collection tc
selcct from before your money leaves
