GOOD Nrws.-An old friend from
Monticello tells us that the farmers
in his neighborhood are in a better
condition this fall so far as provis

been since thme wvar. A great many
planters will have corn to sell, one
in particular, Mr. J. K. Davis, raised
five hundred b~ushels of corn more
than he needs. This looks like there
is some life in the old land yet. A
great ruany of them are raising
their own meat, consequently there
will be no liens from that portion
of the county next year.
The farmers of Jackson's creek
have also raised lai'ge crops of corn
and hay. One hand on Capt. S. B.
Clwe' plantation gathered 40,
000 p~oundls of hay off an eight acre
mead1ow. As we have said before if
our farmers would pay more atten
