The Yorkville Yeoman tells of a
wonderful peavme of this year's
growth brought to that ollice last
Wednesday. "It was ?58 inches long
and 2>4 inches in diameter at its larg
est part, a beet like root, proportion
ately shaped and will six small branch
roo;s. Nine distinct vines had grown
from it, and from these vines a hand
ful of pears had been gathered. The
owner says that it has been living, to
his knowledge, for two years, and that
the vines died down during the win
ter and sprouted out the next spring.
It must have derived most of its nour
ishment from the subsoil, as there was
very little topsoil of a sandy, decom
posed granite character. This is a cu
riosity to us as it is to the gentleman
on whose place it grew, and we would
like to know if anybody else ever saw
or heard of anything of ttie kind.
Now, what the ordinary farmer will
want to know is if the ordinary pea is
such a good renovator of old and worn
out soils, how much better is the pea
now brought to their notice by The
Yeoman, and we in turn want to say,
if the poorest land in South Carolina
will produce peas with that what a
grand future the State must have be

We secure patents und to induce
people to keep track of their bright
deat= wo offer a prize of one hun
ired dollars to be paid on the first

NOT so HARD AS IT SEEMS.
The idea of being able to invent
something strikes most people as
)eing very, difficult,; this delusion
he Company wishes to dispel. It
s tho ?imple things and small in
rentions that make the greatest
imouut of money, aud the complex
mes are seldom profitable. Al
nost everybody, at some time or
mothar, conceives an idea, which,
f patented, would probably bc
vorth lo him a fortune. Unfortu
nately such ideas are usually dis
nissed without thought. Thft-sim
)le inventions like the car v,
vhich could be easily slid i
lown without breaking tb
?enger's back, the sauce pa
jollar button, the nut loc : . :
lottie stopper, the snow t-.. . .
ire things that almost everyone!
?ees some way of improving upon,
ind it is these kind of inventions

The prize we offer will be paid
it the end of each mouth, whether
