Wheat rowing Is engrossing the attention
of the farming commuuity at present. A
very large acreage Is being sown, and we
never saw better stands (ban that that has
come np, owing to tiie excellent ami
thorough maimer In which the land has
been prepared. King cotton has taken a
back seat, where it should be; those that
have cotton crops, however, report a belter
yield than was expected.
We were shown a sweet potato last week,
of the Bermuda variety, grown bv W. J.
Jacobs, which weighed six pounds,"and Mr.
J. says It was the smallest oue in the patch.
The fox chase of the season came of last
Friday morning. Cain McKay saw a lox
ln a thicket about a mile from the village,
and off he galloped lor Bob Lockridge and
Jim i'olk with their hounds). The news
spread through the vicinity, and soon a
large crowd of horsemen gathered and start
ed in persuit of Reynard. A dormant en
thusiasm of twenty was aroused lu the
sedate R. A. McKay aud A. Nichols, and ofT
they started with tbe rest, the "Squire
mounted on the blacksmith's two yea.' old
ally, over bills, through tbe caueurake.
leaplug gullies aud fences, yelling with all
their might, went tbe twelve liorsemeu, the
"Squire two leugtlui ahead.A. Nichols second
best, and making a mighty effort to come in
on the borne stretch. The chase lasted
about two hours, and tbe two Niinrods say
they went to show lhe "boya how to ride,"
and If tbey are cured of a terrible hoarse
ness, caused by the immoderate use of the
vocal coids, it will be tweuiy years more be
fore they engage again.
A sociable given at "apple tree cottage,"
tne resiueuce ot ur. e tree 11, on last Tuesday
evening, was the most delightful allalr of
the kind that has been our pleasure to at
tend. Most elegantly did Aflssea Maria and
Bonnie, assisted by their handsome brolher,
Walker, entertain their gueets with games,
music, uauciug, auu later wiin excellent re
freshments for the Inner man. We noticed
among tbe guests, the accomplished Miss
ltosa Barnett, of Columbia, and the dark
gyed ahd fasclu alios bruuette, Miss Alice
mith, of Spring Hill.
The crowd that weht from this nloco to
ML Pleasant (in Friday night of the lair, to
attend a hop given at the residence of our
former townsman, Mr. George Tate, were
delighted at the pleasant manner ln which
