We have had handed to us an old
leather pocket-book, of the folding
kind, two by Bix inches long, that haa
a history. At the battle of Frederlcks
bcrg, Dec. 18, 1862, it lay snugly in the
pants pocket of Mr. E. Z. Brown,
oblivious to the roar of cannon and the
deafening din of battle until pierced
by a bullet which entered the left
thigh of its owner and left him bleed
ing on the field of battle. This book
now contains a f uric ugh granted Mr.
Brown at "camp rear Orange C. H.,
Va., December 21st, 1803," mentioning
him as "Private of Captain Robert
Jnnkins' Company D, Orr's Regiment
of Rifles, S. C. V.," and aa "agood and
faithful soldier, always ready to do
any duty that was required of him," and
also that "he has never had a furlough
since he entered the service." This
furlough was written by Chas. Winn,
of Anderson, and is signed Robert
Junkins, Co. D.,^ O. R. R.. S. C. V.
He is required to reioin his Company
in January, 11.34. This pocket-book
contains also a battered minie ball
which struck the knee of the owner at
the battle of Jones' farm, September
80,1804, causing the loss of his right
leg. Mr. Brown ia full of energy and
activity despite his age and maimed
condition. He made an excellent race
for Jndge of Probate before the pri
mary just ended.

"MAKE HAY WHILE THE SUN SHINES !"
It is very easy to make Hay while the sun shines if you have
A DEERING MOWER and RAKE.
THE many advantages the Deering Mower has enables the operator to
work it with much more ease than any other machine, and no time lost in go*
ing around stumps and trees. This Machine is so constructed that the driver
is at no trouble in lowering and raising the cutter bar in passing stumps and
trees. With no eflr rt scarcely he brings the cutter bar to an upright position
without stopping the Machine. There are many other advantages the Deer
ing Ideal Mower has that we will show you when you want a Mower.- The
Pitman Rod of this Mower has only two pieces, while all other Machines
have from ten to twenty-five pieces to wear out and be replaced.
The Mower is not all in looking up an outfit. It is essential to have a
good Rake, and the Deering Rake is tho simplest Rake on the market. A
comparison of our Rake with other makes will convince any farmer that it is
the Rake he nee ts. The devices for dumping are so constructed that a child
can operate it without any assistance. If you are in need of an outfit let us
how you our Mower and Rake and be convinced.
NTow is the time to sow your stubble land in Peas and harrow them is
