"There have been about thirty car
loads of mules sold in Fairfield Coun
ty within the pa3t four mouths. This
means a total of about 800 mules
shipped in here from the western mar?
kets. The average prioe of these
mules on tho home market bas been
close to, if not altogether, as much as
$200. It took more than $125,000 out
of the connty to bring these moles

?0? the&o figures Fairfield farmers can

raise one mule than it is four bahs

To say wo farmers are having mild
weather for all kinda of farm work,
would only be faintly expressing our
opinion of these spring-like dava of
warm sunshine, which are really being
highly appreciated by the "tillers of
de r I," for progress is being made
tow "ids the preparation of the coming
crop. The cotton acreage of our im
mediate community will evidently be
equal to those of preceding y oars, but.
however, we should not think it will
exceed that of .'ast year. A good
acreage of oats were pot in last fall,
and some wheat, and our farmers al
ways grow their coin at home to fully
supply their every need, and hence
we are not inclined to think of an in
creased acreage of the fleecy staple

The Farmers' Union at Kheuhama is
in a flourishing condition. This is one
of tho strongest Unions in the State,
und all its members take an active
interest in the workings of the Union.
Na half-heartedness is noticed, bnt all
seem to have a desiro to puBh ever on
ward nud do all tho good that they
can. This Union is doing a large
amount of co-operation buying, and
will soon ba doing all of their business
by that plan. Every man who feels
an iuterest in his chosen occupation
and in the welfare of himself and fam
ily should not hesitate any longer but
send in his application at once. Now
"s tho timo to . como in. Every other
profession has some kind of organiza
tion, and now is tho accepted time for
tho farmer to unite with this grandest
of organizations, for next year it may
bo too lute, and time once passed
never returns; the opportunity lost
now may be lost forever. Some may
argue that times are good enough now,
but they shonld remember that when
our sky eeems most settled and serene
in some unobserved corner gathers the
little black cloud in which the tempest
ferments and prepares to discharge
itself on oar heads. While bears and
