congratulations, the cottage at Deer

was made, and many other pictorial
features of this leading event of the

The day of trial among the little
folks of Congaree have come at last
and they faced the music in good cheer,
and Professor W. D. Hill, like a hero,
opens the exercises with a broad asser
tion by saying gentlemen, ladies and
the patrons of this school, if I do not
show you the best examination to day
you have ever witnessed, I will give
the patron who says so a receipt in full
for his tuition. lie accomplished his
sayings. The exercises of the day
opened with recitation of geography.
First class, one in class, perfect; Second
class, nine in class, six perfect; Master
Brnington Heape, Lars and Annie
Braddy are entitled to the honors of
this class according to age; Third class,
nine in class, aged between seven and
nine. This entire class is entitled to
much honor for their perfection, three
of whom were placed before the black;
board and fully demonstrated mathe
matics and geography. These were the
three youngest, namely, Rassel llilde
brand, Jack Antly and Cicero Wise.
Spelling came on next in dictionary.
Twenty in class. This was also a per
fect lesson and the ei*tire class deserves
credit, and more especially the Profes
sor, for these perfect lessons shows he
has not spent his time idly. Then fol
lowed history. First class, from colo
nial times to the history of the late
war, by Miss Minnie Braddy, Miss
Willie and Master Eddie Braddy. This
lesson was also perfect except a few
dates. Eddie when a little over half
through miscalled a date the second
time, when the professor rose and said:
Eddie, my son, do not get excited if you
all would miss a half dozen of those
dates that would be nothing. They
are hard to remember, for I cannot re
member the date of the month and the
year 1 was born unless I refer to the
?ld family bible. Laughter. This put
a smile on Eddie's face, and the work
went on charmingly. Second history,
ten in class, Annie Braddy, Minnie
Wise, Eddie Braddy and Wiliio Braddy
are intitled to the honors of this class
for a close score. Third class, live in
class, Brnington Heape took the honors
Arethmetic, lirst class, seven in class,
Minnie Braddy, William Ezeikel,Eddie
Braddy. Aggie Wise, Minnie Wise,
Willie Braddy and Annie Braddy, all
of whom are* entitled to high honors
for making a clear score. Second cla;s,
thirteen in class, Frank Wise Brnington
Heape, Ulive Heape, honors fora clear
score. Second honors, Shelton Wise
and Cisero Wise. Third honors, Rossel
Uildebrand, Tommie Braddy and Jack
Antley. The Professor then took some
of his youngest scholars to the black
board and gave them a few sums each
in addition" and multiplication which
was correctly done, and said gentlemen
there they are keep them at work if
you think 1 have them posted. This
ended the work. May the Professor
and family live a long and happy life
and success follow him. We must not
forget to mention that Miss Minnie
Braddy did not miss a word in her
whole* resitations and she deserves
honor for it. COXGAREE.
Some Practical Suggestions.
Eutawville, S. C, June 12th, 1880.
We are in the midst of a wet season
and crops, are bouyent, as well as grass
and weeds, etc.:say you, we know that,
fell us something we do not know.
Well we suppose editors are much
learned and could not look for anything
original or entirely new from a scribbler
and we must beg pardon Mr. Editor.
We write for the information of your
readers, ami hope to get them to think
ing or acting for themselves, for it is
plainly to be seen that too many of our
farmers allow the factors and mer
chants to do their brain work, whose
dupes and slaves they are. What has
become of "Critic?" Has cheap cotton
and Cincinnati bason killed him out.
I have not noticed his obituary. If
living I suppose his time and attention
is turned entirely toward the move
ments of'Gen. Green, whose forces are
advancing in double column and is
receiving fresh reinforcements from
each shower of rain, and many cotton
totts will have to meet a heavy guano
bill this Fall, a large per cent, of which
has passed into grass and weeds, which
will rot on the surface and cause many
to pay a heavy doctor bill in the Fail
season. Out farmers need the advice
of experienced and practical men, and
" I know of no one better fitted than
"Critic." He should not become weary
from the fact that he does not see the
good result of his labor at once. Noah
preached one hundred and twenty years
to the antideluvians and never made a
single convert. Yet lie faithfully
warned them of the troubles ahead.
So our farmers must be continually
warned of the sin und folly of planting
all cotton. Now is the time for plant
