Crops in Vinton County.
Mr. J. B. Randall writing to
the Ohio Farmer from this
county says :
The farmers of this county
have had a cold wet spring to
contend with, and consequent
ly were leter getting their
crops in than ujual, though
there is a greater breadth in
corn, oats and tobacco by ten
percent. It was dry and hot
from from May 10; h to June
12ih, the thermometer stand
ing at from 75 to 102 degrees
at noon; since then we have
had it more seasonable, with
some heavy 6torms of rain and
wind. Corn is in about an av
erage condition; oats five per
cenu below; w heat about twen
ty per cent, above an average;
pastures and meadows above
an average. There is consider
able wheat and clover cut. Ap

acres in vineyard in the county;
sweet cherries, a failure, the
first time for sixteen years.
Our county is among the best
mineral counties in the State.
It has seven iron furnaces with
inexhaustible beds of ore and
coal, and the lower vein will
mako good iron without char
coal. We want more railroads
to be able to fully develop our
resources. Our county is gen
erally hilly, but the soil is good,
with good timber, hickory, oak,

both resided. They went to
Pittsburg and thence to Har

hotel. While Miss Faulstick
was lying on the bed Frazier
shot her in the fiend with a re
volver, and then, shot himself.
He lived but a few hours. The
