who resides in Wilkes county,
near Washington, was iu Edge
field last week solicitiLg orders
for "Hardin's Prolific" cotton
seed. This is a variety of cluster
cotton that he has been improv
ing" for eight years. He carried
with him two specimen stalks
that were .the marvel of all who
saw them. The bolls or burB were
so thick that they almost touched
on the limbs. A email stalk not
over four feet in height had some
thing like 150 bure on it. Mr.
Hardin sold about $100 worth of
seed at Trenton and about $50
worth in Edgefield.

Appeal to the Supervisor.
Mr. Editor: I desire through
your columns to call the attention
of the County Supervisor to the
very bad conditiou of the New-)
berry road leading out from
Edgefield to the Burt place. This
road is almost impassable in many
places. I realize that there is an
extensive mileage of public high
ways in the county and that all
of the had places cannot receive
attention at the same time, but in
behalf of the many persons who
travel this road, I respectfully re
quest and urgj? tho Supervisor to
give-tj's'reliet' #s*-aa_rly as he can
possibly. He has alwaVB-feeen_yery
considerate and obliging in the"
past, and trust that he will con
tinue to be so.
