Our streots look almost deserted;
t business is dull. Ergo, tho farmers
are busy preparing tor the coming
seed time. .
Cold weather is again upon as. As
we have liad no winter thus far, we
suppose ? >8 yet to come. A late,
cold spring is reasonably expected.
These extrerooe in tcmpet aturo cannot
fail to prod oco sickness.
Wo call attention to the County
Treasnrer's notice in reference to tho
Air Lino Railroad Tn*?a Wn
for ft merry tiino in Pickens boforo a

Our County Treasni cr is still going

If all wait till the lust, some w ill not |

then comes the penalty. The o'd

would not be tn.e in tlmir canes.
We did tint mean to Bay in our
V last week's issue that Mr J C. Gritlin
did the milling gratis, hut iuteu?
to suy liisj carrying tho corn and
returning tho meal was gratis. The
former would l?o a little too good; it
would bo more than our perverted
litttnan nature could bear. We make
this correction in order to keep so
many fiom annoying our young
townsman with tho question: Vllallol
x Cal, you are grinding tor the public

A negro hung around tho store of
vuw u? uur mercuants all last week
find tho beet part of litis, wanting to
give a lion on (tie future crop for a
piece of "Old JJod." If ho had been
at work duiing tho time ho spent in
trying to negotiate, ho could have
* made tlio money and paid tho cash.
This i) one of the many instances o!
the bad, and wo might say sad, effects
ol the present lion law. It they
give a lien to ttio merchant fur sup- |
plies, idleness baa become so fashion
able and respectabio among them
that they, in most instances, after
the land owner has taken liis ronts?
^ have nothing left upon which ihe
morchant can lien. The negro, to be
success, most woik more, and dab^
ble in politics less.
The Rev. Geo. W. Singleton, who
has just returned from an extensive
trip traveling over almost the whole
of North cost Georgia, reports the
prospects for a good wheat crop aa
quite flattering, especially ah ng the
Higbtower (upper Etawa) ltiver, and
that the early sown oats are looking
very fine. Old farmers say the pros
p?ct for a good harvest has not boen
better sinco tho Indians gave up
their lands. lie says tliero is a aroni
complaint about (lio scnreity of
( money. Almost every farmer lost
more or lees meat, by the unusual
warm weather, about Christmas. Da
eon will be unusually high in tl at
scction during the coming summer.
