National Surgical Institute.
One of the staff of this old and no

C., October 20th and 21st, 1879, stcp
ping at the Simmons House.
The object of this visit is to give the
afflicted an opportunity for examina
tion at or near their homes, thus saving
hopeless cases the expense of a trip to
Atlanta. A careful examination will
be made, and patients can learn if their
cases are curable or can be benefited,
and whether it will be necessary for
them to visit the Institute. In such
cases as can be cured, or treatment be
gun at home, arrangements can be
made with our visiting Surgeon, and
treatment commenced at once. Exam
Cases of Deformities and Chronic
Diseases will be examined-such as
Club Feet, Diseases of the Hip, Spine
and Joints, Paralysis,- Piles, Fistula,
Catarrh, Female and private diseases,
and diseases of the Eye, Ear, &c.

the time stated. For circulars and full

A Negro Killed.
Trial Justice A. H. Wheeler, of Pros

denbaugh, Monday, the 6th, to arrcst
Luther Kinard, colored, on a charge of
petit larceny-stealing watermelons.
On the way the Constable fell in with
Mr. Win. Boozer, who went with the
Constable to Mr. J. J. Paysinger's
place, where the negro lived, to arrest
him. Before arriving at the cotton patch
where the negro was at work Boozer
asked Bedenbaugh for a pistol; he hand
ed him a small one, but told him not
to use it. Boozer rode up to the ne
geo and told him he had a warrant for
his arrest. About this time Boozer's
mule whirled round and the negro ran.
As he was getting over the fence, about
ten steps away, Boozer fired, the ball
striking the negro in the small of the
back, penetrating several inches and
causing death in a few ninutes. Cor

Last Wednesday afternoon two fair ones
dropped into the Book Store in search

would satisfy. It was a new world to
them, everything was wonderful, pres
sea, type, all were critically examined,
and even the "devil" to see if he had
horns, a cloven foot, or a-a-narrative.
It was such a pleasant visit that one of
the fair ones said she would like to
spend two or three days in a printing

It is hardly yet possible to say what
will be the size of the cotton crop, or
even the size of the average man or
woman's pile of money; but it is mor
ally certain that there will be a pretty
good crop of the former and that the
latter will soon be larger than it has
been for many long months. And one
other thing is also certain, that money
will be spent judiciously and not thrown
away. When anything is wanted it
will be first asked where can it be had
the cheapest and best. To meet that
want Messrs. Kingsland & Heath, of
Columbia, have determined to keep up
with the great change in prices and cir
cumstances and offer their large and
beautiful stock of china, crockery, glass
and other ware at prices which defy

Wheat and Oats.
Bro. Thos. W. Holloway, Wor
thy Secretary of the State Grange,
said: The subject for discussion,
the raising of wheat and oats, is a
very important one to the farmers
of our State, and the same should
be thoroughly ventilated.
I hold in my hand a "Manuel of
Georgia, for the use of Immigrants
and Capitalists," issued by Dr.
T. P. Jones, Commissioner of Agri
culture for our sister State. In this
pamphlet I find statements of most
extraordinary yields of the various
crops suited to the soil in certain
localities of that State, embracing
all the products that can be grown
in any section of the United States.
But, as the subject for discussion
embraces only wheat and oats, I
confi!e myself to extracts of only a
few of the statements given.
I find the yield of wheat from 12
to 40 bushels to the acre; oats
from 75 to 137 bushels to the acre!
The yield as given is extraordina
ry, and should encourage our far
mers to profit by the results ob
tpined by our brothers in the Em
pire State. Particulars as to the
grade of lands and the manner of
manuring are not stated ; but
I feel satisfied if our people
were to sow the cow pea with a
liberal application of the ash ele
ment, that our lands could be so
thoroughly improved as to yield
crops of all kind equal to those
grown in the United 6tates.
While I have never been a strong
advocate of raising wheat in our
State, other than for home con
sumption, (which I claim should be
done by all means) yet in the mid
dle and the upper portion of the
State, it can be grown with profit.
First, by the proper preparation
of the soil, preceding the seeding
of the land, after having been
thoroughly manured, which seed
ing should not be done later than
the first of November in this lati
tude; harrowed instead of using
the plow, thus covering the seed to
a uniform depth, insuring all to
come up at the same tinre ad get
ting an even start.
As to the importance of growing
Oats, it ,is scarcely necessary to
speak, but I desire simply to say
that, but for this important crop,
our farmers would be in far worse
condition tl a', they are.
I maintai that as much food for
our animals can be grown on one
acre of land in oats as can be grown
on three acres planted in corn, the
manuring of both being equal; and
my belief is that two bushels of
oats, with the straw, is worth as
much as one bushel of corn and the
fodder, the oats being grown and
harvested at one third the cost of
corn. Besides this, it is admitted
that for general fee4in.g oats are
preferable to corn. I cannot too
earnestly urge a change from the
small area of lands now devoted to
oats to a very considerable in
crease in acreage and a correspon
ding lessening of the acreage in
corn. It is true in certain locali
ties, namely lowgrounds subject to
overflow, corn can be grown to a
greater advantage than oats; but
such instances, are few. Conse
quently it fol0ws that, as a general
thing, the oat crop should receive
the earnest attention of our farm
ers; the first step towards which
consists in a proper preparation of
the soil, arnd in thorough manuring.
The time is not far distant when
our people will realize th~e (rpppr
tance of the oat crop, as well as the
g.rasses-as one of the most availa
ble means for successfully raising
stock for our home consumption.
The Legislature of the State in
its wisdom has not seen fit to give
that encouragement to the farming
interest that it deraands. It is
hoped that the course pursued by
the State of Georgia in establishing
Bureau of Agriculture for the dis
semination of information,-that
Bureau to which I have already re
ferred, as sending her pa:nphlets
abroad to the encouragemetnt of
emigration and capital within her
borders, miay be adopted by this
State. This is a digression from
the subject under discussion. I
merely beg to refer to it that the
matter may be brought to the
attention of our people.
