The Adams dewberry is a white
dewberry, white after it gets ripe and
white before it gets ripe, white all the
time. Children commence on them
early and thus you save rations and
doctor's bills. They are called the
Adams dewberry because W. J. Adams,
of Elmwood, discovered them and sent
a box of 'em to this office and the edi
tor eat 'em all up, and after that if you
don't want to call 'em the Adams dew
berries you can call 'em anything y,._
This is the tale that friend Eb Rey
nolds tells : "Many years ago," says he,
aid I am over 60 years of age, I went
to Augusta, and while there I bought a
little and drank a little rye whiskey,
and took it occasionally on my way
home. It made me feel comfortable if
not joyous. I had at home a sick hog.
1 reasoned this way : If the stuff makes
me feel good, why not try it on my
sick hog, it may cure her. So I turned
her over on her back and give her a
small wine glass full, but of course I
didn't put ai?y sugar in har'n. In two
minutes she was as dead as Julius
Caesar after the dagger of Brutus. The
death of that old sow reformed me. I
might have been a drunkard but for
her sudden demise."

Mr. DeVore represented the appel

bound the Supreme judges for more
than half an hour with bis massive
logic and captivating rhetoric, to say
nothing of the sockdolager law he

hence, that from which there is no

Our old friend W. E. Dobey has had
some experience with wild onions. He
says they are worse than nut grass.
He says that ?.you may pull up a wild
onion, stick it up in the forks of a tree,
leave it there one year, and it will
come up and flourish and thrive." The
only way he has found to get rid of
them is to lay them on ene flat reek
and mash 'em with another. And yet
from these very wild onions we get the
succulent and toothsome onion for our
Sow pease and aplenty of'em. There
are many ways of planting pease. The
following is a good way : Next to the
last plowing of your corn put a row of
pease down the middles, and then at
the last plowing sow broadcast or drop
on each side of the corn row. The field
in September will be covered and make
the most beautiful sight in the way of
a crdp the eye of mau ever rested upon.
.Remember that no crop responds to
intelligent fertilizing like the cow
pea, and the fertilizer to be used is
acid phosphate. Don't use ammoniated
goods on this crop. It will be money
And when the Black Diamand peo

But 'twas the first to fade away.
We never loved a dear gazelle,

The facts of Mooney's desertion

The State at the time and the
prisoner was brought through here
on his way to St. Augustine from
Greenville, were his regiment was

known that he was in any way
