Grain Outlook Gloomy.
From the reports that reach us
we infer that the grain crop gen
erally falls far short ot being what
every farmer would like for it to
be. Mr. J. C. Morgan, who is ?
close observer and a successful
farmer, residing near Parksrille,
told us on Friday that the grain
ou the west-side was exceedingly
poor as a whole. Now and thew,
here aud there, good spots eould
be found. He has about five acres
in wheat which was well prppared
and highly fertilized, that under
ordinary conditions should make
more than ICO bushels, from
which he does not now expect
more than 35. Mr. J. Ransome
Timmermau spent Sunday on hi?
farm at Pleasant Lane and re
ports that the grain is exceeding
ly poor in that section. From 45
acres in oatB he does not expect
to harvest more than should be
made ou eight or ten acreB. The
wise farmer will, in view of the
partial failure of grain, increase
his corn acreage. Plant more
corn-plant more corn.

Firemen Need Better Equipment
More than a year ago the young
men of our towu organized a
Fire Department whose chief aim
and purpose has been thp protec
tion of property. They have work
ed hard iu their endeavor to per
fect their plans but have been
'seriously handicapped for lack
of funds. The council ha6 done
what it could in aiding and co
operating with these youug men
but it, too, has not sufficient
funds for equipping the depart
ment for efficient service. The
department desired to protect and
save tbe property in every part
of town, which is impossible as
it is a: present equipped. The eu
gine is too heavy to be pullt-d
over our long, steep hills by hand,
hence one or mc re horses should
be attached to it when au alarm
ia given. Furthermore, a bell for
sounding fire alarms is needed.
Then the firemen .and citizens
generally could be awakened
without delay. When an effort is
made to raise funds for equip

Dwelling Destroyed by Fire;
The home of Mrs. C. J. Ashley,
who resides on Addison street,
was totally destroyed by fire on
Sunday night last. The fire was
discovered in the attic of the
dining room about 12:30 o'clock.
A colored boy who was bleeping
in the rear of the house was
awakened by the smoke and gaye
the alarm with the yell of a
Comanche Indian. Despite his
sonorous voice and the discharge
of fire arms, aid was a little slow
in arriving, for the inhabitants
of our erstwhile quiet town were
sojourning in far off Dreamland
during the dead hours of night.
However, as B-,OU as the alarm was
heard assistance-?he kind of
men who are not afraid of work,
especially in such an exigency-ar
rived. The fire had made too rapid
headway in the buildiug between
the ceiling and roof to extinguish
it. Therefore, everybody turned
their attention toward saving the
household effects and a nearby
residence. The firemen, and a
brave s fit. of young men they are,
arrived with the engine too late
tu save the building but kept th?
roof of the adjoining residence
wet and rendered other valuable
assistance. 'J he house, which be
longed lo the Thos. J. Adams es
. tate, was insured for $900, while
Mrs. Ashley's furniture was in
sured for $500. The fire was not
of incendiary origin but evidently
the work of rats and matches. ' ?

Death of a Beautiful !
At the six.o'clock h
day morning- last t
soul of little Kerri eu,
year-old sou of Mr. a
Berrien Walker, was
angels to Him who si
the little children to
me, and forbid ihem_iur ui
such is tLe kingdom of heaven."
This sweet, bright, beautiful and
precocious lil tie child, the idol of
his parents, the suushiue and
joy of the home, was taken after
only a day's illness, which ren
ders more poignant the grief of
those who loved him so tenderly.
The death of little Barrien is but
a transition. This beautiful flower
has been transplanted by His
loving hand into the heavenly
clime before it bad suffered the
blighting iniiuences-of the crosses,
trials and sins of earth. In this
hour of deep affliction the broken
hearted parents have the tenderest
sympathy of our . ntire communi
ty, which was evidenced by the
very huon rous and exceedingly
beautiful Moral tributes.
Mr. Walker was iu New Orleans
but reached Beaufort, bia former
borne, in time for the interment
on Tuesday morning.
Notice of Thanks.
I take this means of thanking
my neighbors and the public
generally for the very valuable
assistance rendered in their effortB
to save my furniture and house
hold eiTects from destruction by
fire on Sunday night last. I shall
never forget their kindness.
