large circle of friends who called upon
thfcui and paid their respects. All
those who called showed their esteem
of the brilliant young minister and his
good wife by presenting them with
handsome presents, considerable cash
being mixed with other nice presents."
Here follows a long list of presents
ranging from a $50 suit of clothes for
Mr. Carpenter, besides many presents

The Freight Depot.? Nomerous
complaints are being made about the
great lack of space at the freight depot.
Cotton has been coming in qnite
briskly, and as a part of the platform
cannot be used a considerable delay is
caused in unloading bales, for they
have to be dumped where opportunity
ailords. We think the railroad company
should immediately remedy this
evil. Besides fixing the portions of
the platform unsafe for use, they
should give more space for the storage
of cotton, tor the present space is inadequate
for tho speedy and expeditious
unloading of the staple. This
condition of affairs is detrimental to
j Winnsboro's trade in that, it causes
I unnecessarv and expensive delays both
to buyer and seller/ Mr. Creight informs
as that the lumber is ready to
repair the unsafe parts of the platform,
which repairing should be done immediately.
Besides this greater space
is needed, and the railroad authorities
ought to supply it quickly, so as not
to delay farmers in the delivery of
their cotton, or shippers in sending off
their purchases. We call upon the an-!
thorities to make the needed repairs. I

the 'all powerful jzjLILhoad
Mr. .Editor: A few days ago, 11
came across a short sketch in the New j
York Star, which, whether it be considered
as instruction or prophecy, is
so applicable to Winnsboro, that it
will well bear reproduction in your
It is curious to note how little the
people permanently resident in any certain
locality recognize the real sources of
their coming prosperity. For years after
the failure of the whale fishery Sag Harbor,
Long Island, was under a cloud. Its
young men went to California, to the west,
to the city and to worse places. It hankered
after a business. It dwelt mournfully
on the past prosperity of the whaling
era. It started a cotton mill, which l^vea
a sickly life and finally departed in smoke
and flame. Xet to-day bag Harbor has
more stores than ever before. It has more
houses than ever. It is better ordered and
prettier than ever. Streets once wastes of
land are now lined by shade trees. Three
steamboats, during the summer, daily arrive
and depart, wnere one was more thau
equal to the business thirty years ago.
Wliat has been tho chief source of this increasing
prosperity ? There is but one
answer. It is the all powerful railroad.
"VVinnsboro has aroused from the
lethargy into ?rhich she was thrown
by the "disastrous civil war. The children
of then are the men of business
activities now, in the prime of life, enjoying
the full tide of energy, and nn,
trammeled by the traditions of "befo'
de wall," they are seeking to restore
the prosperity and the influence of tho
town of their- home. Like Sag Harbor,
Winnsboro "hankers after a business."
Let her bat heed the lesson taught by
experience; let her but recognize that
not in the "sickly cotton mill"
but in the "all powerfal railroad" is
the key to Sag Harbor's prosperity,
and Winnsboro will take on a new
lease of life. Therefore, it behooves
the citizens of Winnsboro to encourage
the projected railroads in every
I way, and with heart, purse, and voice
to do everything in their power to
build these iron road3 to prosperity
and success. Tax Payer.
THE OATS CROP.
In answer to the four questions recently
propounded in this paper? the
following answers have been received.
The questions and answers are given
1. Was not the planting or oats, on
account of frequent failures, almost
abandoned before Col. "YVyatt Aiken
introduced the red rust-proof variety,
and from whence did he procure the
2. For a few years after the introduction
of the red rust-proof oats was
the oats crop both abundant and certain?
3. Has not the deterioration of the
seed caused the failures of the past
few years, and would not the importation
and use of a fresh supply of seed
again insure good crops?
4. With the poor corn crop of this
year would it not be advisable to make
the experiment this fall with fresh
1. In my opinion the crop was abandoned
more on account of the price of
cotton and renting of the laud for a
certain quantity of cotton; that only
land that was too poor for cotton was
sown in oats. I do not know where
Col. Aiken procured the teed.
2. Yes. For a few years they did
well until the winter freezes killed
them out, together with not beiu#
properly gown, 01* sown too late in the
season for the roots to get good hold.
3. I do not believe the deterioration
of the seed is the real cause of the
failure. As stated above, the freezes
had a great deal to do with it, besides
lack of attention in sowing, in selecting
good land, manuring, and properly
putting in. If the pure rust proof
variety can be obtained I think it
would be a good idea to get them, although
there was a fine oats crop this
season in this section, having been
sown in September and January, following
a pea crop. I believe cotton

4- Yes. By all means sow both early
and late, putting cotton seed on freely.
S. R. Johnston.
Seed has undergone a material
change since first introduced here
about the year 1873, if I mistake not.
From that year to 1882 we had no
trouble in securing a paying crop, entirely
free from rust on ordiuary lands.
The cold winters did not effect tnem
enough to require re-sowing, as they
| do now.
"When first brought here they were
redder, had a long, stiff beard, and were
much heavier than they are now.

I have always understood that Col.
Wyatt Aiken first brought them from
Mexico about the year 1870. Perhaps
Col. Wash "Watts", of Laurens, couid
give the most reliable information concerning
their importation into this
State. w. b. y.
Mr. Editor: Replying to your postal
card of the 21st ult., in reference to
red oats, will say in answer to first
query that I am unable to give a full
answer in reference to the production
of oats before the introduction of the
red oats by Col. Aiken, as I had only
commenced farming about that time;
but am inclined to think from memory
that very few oats were sown before
I am unable to say where Col. Aiken
got the seed, but have heard it said
that they must have been introduced
from Scotland, as it is there that the
fiuest oats are raised.
In answer to the second question,
will say that I attribute the failure in
* * * - * - f A
ttl6 0&L8 crop lur Lilt? iilOl 1C)> > ca; o iv
several reasons: 1. To the "careless
and negligent way of preparing the
land at planting time. 2. Planting
what is called the fall planting in early
winter, and on the poorest land and
without manure. 3. The very severe
winters that we have had for several
years, and the careless way of selecting
the seed for the next year's crop,
thus causing the deterioration in quality
of seed in great part, and then not
considering oat6 as a very important
crop, bat only something to feed on
until the corn that is expected to come
bat hardly ever gets there, is ready to
The writer has never yet failed in
making an oats crop and has never lost
any from bad weather at harvest time,
but has made enough to feed on from
one year's end to another, and have
had parties to como from near CoJambia
for seed oats in the fall of 1886,
when the oats crop, as a general thing,
was a failure.
I think, in anBwer to the fourth
query, that the introduction of fresh
seed would be advantageous, but
think that the only way for us to
improve our seed, fresh or not,
! and keep them pure is- by the
the selection of the finest and heaviest
i stools' or bunches of red oats before
the reaper, stripping with the hand
I the best and heaviest heads from these,
j By thus selecting and planting a special
acre or two to save oar seed from
each year I think we will be enabled
to retain the pore red oat. By thus
doing and using some of our good
land with a little cotton seed in the fall
or top dressing with guano in the
spring, and after oats peas. I venture
to say that we will not only succeed in
making good and never failing oats
crops, but our lands will improve
under the rotation with peas, and we
will make enough peas and vines to
pay for the planting and gathering of
both crops. In gathering the oat crop
t r?rofpr nnf to tip t'iem in bundles, for
if left spread out on the ground for
several hours or a day they will be
ready to house before the rain comes,
bat lied and shocked, as a general
thing, they will rot under tie and
never cure thoroughly until the band
is cnt. Let us plant more oats, and
less corn (which is more difficult
to raise) planting apart in
the fall and a part in first of January
or near first of March, and if those
planted in the fall are killed let us not
lose heart, but plant over in the spring
and we are sure to succeed.
Aud, lastly, Mr. Editor, I think our
county paper deserves the thanks and
patronage of the farming community
for the interest shown in all matters
appertaining to the advancement of
the agricultural interests of the county.

JAMES Q. DAVIS,
IU?0 X JLX? v^ouuiy iieivsuici.
WE do not bait customers with
sonic articles at low figures,
making it neccssarh for us to take advantage
of them in the price3 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. Our motto is to
"LIVE AND LET LLVE."
Wc would 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 send you
something fine for a little money, you
may rest assured that he is a fraud. It
is painful to know how much our peo;
pie have been humbugged by the catchpenny
advertising firms. If their
goods are so cheap how car. they anorc
to advertise so extensively? And whj
i 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 oui
, people will stop sending away foi
goods in our line, and patronize us, w<
. promise that we will take no advan
j tage of them, but will sell as low a.<
any other house can, when quality an(
L! quanity are both considered. And
moreover, this coarse will enable us U
increase our stock so that you wil
1 have a more interesting collection t<
select from before your money leave
I vour hand.
