The circumstances are very sad indeed.
The young lady was at school on
Wednesday, and fell seemingly
insensible; she was carried home and
never spoke after she wa? first attacked.
She was affected with something
like congestion of the brain.
Miss Barley was only nineteen years
old, which makes her death and re

Her young life was snatched from her
without any warning. She was a
consistent member of Salem Church,
and had laid the ground work of a
i beautiful character. ' She was dear to
all who knew her. She leaves a largo

THE F. A. SOCIETY.
Its Second Annual Institute?The First
Day a Most Gratifying Beginning?Elaborate
Display of Exhibits of Farm Products,
Delicacies, Stock and Poultry, and
Exhibitors and Exhibits?Award of Premiums
Owing1 to the fact that the farmers
were engaged in this beautiful weather
in picking their cotton, and the tardiness
with which the exhibits for the
second annual Institute of the Fairfield
Agricultural Society came in. the
Executive Committee showed by their
anxious countenances, on Tuesday, the
day before the Institute, that they
feared the affair would not close with
that degree of success, which it is
now destined to do. Every cloud of
despondency, however, was dispelled
on "Wednesday morning. By breakfast,
wagon after wagon, with cotton
bales, with boxes of preserves, wines,
etc., with coops of chickens of evenbreed,
literally crowded the street in
front of the Court House, in which
they were to be displayed, and
a most magnificent exhibition and die
play they made. On all sides were j
were heard words of commendation
and laudation of the committee, and
expressions of astonishment at what
old Fairfield could do when she exerted
At 11.30 A. M. the Winnsboro Cornet
Band assembled on their stand,
in the Coui i House yard. This indicated
that the formal opening of the
Institute was near at hand. The
crowd soon began to collect, and after
a number of pieces of music, in which,
by the way, the band sustained their
high reputation, the Court House became
filled with ladies and gentlemen.
After an appropriate prayer by the

Biggin?, 1st. Vice-President, in the
absence of President T. L. Johnston
on account of sickness, arose and in a
suitable address declared the formal
opening of the Lnstitute, and introduced
Gen. Johnson Hagood, who
was received with a round of applause,
and still another loud applause, when
Maj. Woodward, at the conclusion of
the formal introduction by Mr. lliggins,
cried oat, "Renowned in war, and
distinguished in peace." Gen. 11agood
then proceeded to deliver his
interesting lecture on "stock raisins,"'
which will be found in the supblement.
At the conclusion of Gen. Hagood's
admirable address, a general discussion

able information on matters which
were touched on in the address of the I
AVe would fail to give a true account
of the Institute, if we did not mention
the tine exhibition of stock. This
feature is a new one and was no less
creditable than the magnificent show- j
ing made in the Court House. It certainly
teaches this most practical lesson
viz: that Fairfield can raise her own
horses, colts and cows.
Then again we would grossly detract
from the merits of the Institute, if we
did not include the extensive array of
chrysanthemums, which by their
beauty and artistic arrangement furnished
a variety of scene, beautiful and
attractive to the eye. For the existence
of this department of the Institute, to
the ladies credit is to be accorded.

The second day of ihc Institute, takI
ing all things into consideration,
(eclipsed even the very satisfactory
work of the first day. This is perhaps
due to ihe entire satisfaction given on
tne first day, and 110 doubt many of
the attendants 011 Wednesday had
silently resolved that they would
make a ijood report to their friends
and induce them to be present
at the session 011 Thursday.
Then there is probably another
item to be taken into consideration in
accounting lor the increased audience
011 Thursday; and that is, many did
not fully realize how much good could
be accomplished iu these meetings,
where every one is made to fee! unembarrassed
and nrged without pomp of
ceremony or formality to discuss in a
* ?fe and easy manner matters of paramount
importance to farmers. At any
rate whatever may have been the cause,
it suffices to know that the Court
House had more people in it on the
second day; and what is, perhaps,
more important, the work was remarkable
for the interest and enthusiam
By 11.30 a. m. Mr. J. "\Yr. Seiffler, j
although requested to do so not more
than a half hour earlier, had his band
collected on the stand. The promptness
with which the members
I ... ? . , .
assembled?some 01 inem even closing
their stores?and the excellent music
rendered, made the band the recipient
of high compliments from more than
one of the spectators; to say the least,
the music of the band added a greatdeal
to the pleasure of the occasion, and it
is not amiss to say that time and again,
n various oc^as ions, the band has
proven itseif to be worthy of all encouragement
The Institute was opened with a
fitting prayer by the Rev. J. G. Glass.
Mr. J. M. Higgins then introduced
the speaker of the day, Dr. W. B.
Buruev, professor of chimestry in the
State University and State Chemist.
Dr. Bnrnev, in his usual pleasant
manner, prefaced his essay by a few
remarks, una among otuer inings saiu
that one of the best schools he had
ever attended was at Gladdeu's Grove,
and that he had lived in Winnsboro
for a short time; this being true, he
could claim lo have been an inhabitant
of Fairfield, atid, therefore, did
not feel that he was in a strange land.
Dr. Barney then read a most admi|
rable and useful essay on 4iStock Feed1
ing," going minutely, though not
i tedwnsly, into the relative values of
j different kinds of foods for stock,
j His essay was remarkable for the
| lucid style in which it was written,

: fectly plain the technical terms used,
i and carried home many important
j facts so otten ignored.
; At the conclusion of his essay, he
j was besieged " with questions, which
he promptly answered with the same
clearness in which his paper was
written. Many of those present also
gave bits of their experience, and it can
be safely said the few hours weie
passed very profitably.
j At the afternoon session Uiose ooj

It was the good fortune of the canvassing
agent of The News and
Herald to spend part ol a day ai La
Grange, the farm of Mr. John G. Mobley..
in the Gladden Grove section of
this couuty. La Grange was the home
of Mr. Mobley's father, and has always
been known as one of the most valaahle
farms in the Waterce belt, where
some of the most fertile lands in the
State lie. The limestone characteristic
j make tbern particularly well adapted
j to the cultivation of grasses and for
i stock raising-.
Mr. Moblev has^spared neither time
nor expense in farm improvement,
and the management is quite up to
that of the many progressive young
farmers who are beginning to come to
the front. The lands, not in cultivation.
are fenced off into four seperate
stock ranges. In one of these a
herd of thoroughbred Guernseys roam,
lazily nipping, in their aristocratic
way, the tender blades of the luxuriant
Bermuda grass. The herd numbers
seventeen, and is one of the finest in
fhn pnnnfrv. liflvino- been selected with
""v vv V4"v' J 7 O
great care?somc of tliem being immigrants
from the little island in the
English channel made famous by the
high grad3 of milch cows developed
there. These "blue bloods" are all
registered, esch with a pedigree reaching
back for generations. Wherever
exhibited, they have taken the blue
ribbon, and will probably be sent to the
State Fair this month. It is interesting
to see how well these cows are
trained, each one knowing exactly
where it is expected to stand in the
stables, and gently holding out their
htad?, they allow themselves to be
stanchioned for'he night.
The other ranges are used lor pasturage
for the -common herd."
The hands on the place were engaged
in sowing oat?, the proprietor
being a believer in the economy of
that crop. An advocate of fall preparation.
Mr. Mublev is preparing to
have all of the land to be cultivated
nexl; year, thoroughly broken during
the fall months.
Besides an average crop of cotton.
La Grange has produced this year an
abundnnt harvest of corn, peas, potatoes,
fodder, and more hay than the
many quadrupeds, on the place will
require for the winter.
