Your correspondent matlo a flying
trip through tho Shady Grove section
a few days ago. This is a prosperous
?pot of Anderson County, to be arre.
Here all tho farmers are in good on
dit ion, und as one drives past "'voll
ings and barns their well-kept condi
tion, their neatness, the nigh hay
stacks and full cribs at tout the thrifti
ness aud prosperity of thin section.
The crops hereabouts havo been boun
tiful this year. One farmer has in one
field 20 acres of cotton which will yieid
him about20 bales. It is interesting to
know that this field of cotton wits cul
tivated almost entirely by harrowing.
The co'ton was harrowed acrosB the
rows when the plants were 10 inches
high. This shows one way that a
farmer may fortify himself against the
rapidly failing supply of labor. The
Shady" Grove church-already an at
tractive country church-is being made
much more attractive by additions and
improvements. A committee of the
Church members has the work in
charge and the work is being rapidly
carried to completion. When this in
completed there will be no prettier
Church in Anderson County outside of
the county seat.
The farmers are beginning to realize
that after all the cotton crop has not
been burt so much by the extended
drought. Generally, they Bay that they
will make a better yield than they ex
pected. The corn ca ops and hay crops
are splendid ones.
No better index to the prosperity of
the farmers this year eau be found than
the fact that a car load of mules
brought to Belton by D. A. Geer ?c
Co., was sold out in a few dayn: Us
ually this is the time of year when the
farmer wants to sell his stock. Tho
enterprising firm of D. A. Geer & Co.,
has had an almost unprecedented salo
of boggies and wagons thia year and
they are still going.
