Spring and Summer An
I assert without fear. of con
tradiction that I have the larg
est stock of General 3Merchan
dise kept by any Retail Store
in the State. and my Spring and
Summer stock is unusually large
this year. I am not selling be
low cost, but wishing to con
vert this immense stock into
money. I am determined to sell
at the lowest ffigures. I invite
a careful inspection of my goods.
but please remember that it is
impossible in so large an estab
lishment to exhibit everything
to public view: so ask for what
you want, and my salesmen will
take great pleasure in showing
the goods. A Cordial invita
tion is extended to all to visit
my mammoth establishment.
where they will find everything
they require, and receive fair
dealing and polite attention.

it rains soon, they will be too large to

31y Times! It has been a long time
since I gave you a word, but as an
oIccasional (dot) comes in very well,
once-in-a-while, I write.
There is no news in Summerton;
a new thing becomes old in a hurry
here; a fast place you see-steam and
-and- -gas, and electricity-when
we get the rail-road. Well, Mr. J. D.
Rutledge surveyed it last Saturday to
within a mile of Summerton, but as
times are pretty lively, as to the sit
uation of the depot, we would sug
gest that a Pacific: committee be ap
pointed to locate the place and drive
down a peg, before he brings it in.

MTh. EmrroI: It is universally con
ceded that :he garden of Eden was at!
one time the most lovely spot created,
and that father Adam was the hap
piest man that ever lived in the tide of
time. There was mother Eve, so
"Grace was in all her steps,
Heaven in her eye;
In every gesture, dignity and love.~
By a single stroke of nature she wvas
created into womanhood, and became
a wife as it were, by magic; she had
no childhood, and was deprived of
that most enjoyable age for tiirting
and mash-making, in which some
girls of the period delight to indulge.
Adam being the only man upon whom
to smile, finally suc-ceected in winning
her undivided affections. Oh! hal)
py pair, in such a bissful haunt! !
They latbored near each other, wind
mg 'the wood-bine around the arbor,
directing the clasping ivy where to
limb, or trailing y-onder spring of
roses, with sweet intercourse of
looks and smiles:
"For smiles from reason flow,
To brute denied,
And are of love, the food."
The singing of birds, and lowing of
herds, all harmonizing in sweetest an
iso. But alas: "Satan having comn
passed the eart iiuth meditated guile,
returns as a mist by night," and lea ps~
the walls of 1Paradise. Confusion,
death and ruin rule d the hour.

Ithose dirty sparks of envy and malice,
Iwhich are but too apt to infest us.

to have "compassed" several counties,
"like a roaringr lion seeking whom he

pondents, and is making a desperate
effort to fasten his fangs in our a.
ready flaved and mutilated carcasses.

Mr. Editor, your readers know that
we are too Frieadlyin our nature to
ever try to assume the role of critic;
it was never our intention to wound.
In bird hunting it is sometimes pleas
mnt to make a good hit, but we never
like to Bone-cm, for its the rounded
bird that always fluteis and sjuols.

excuse us, should we decline in future
to waste ammunition on a crippled
bird. Peace to your ashes-good

Mn. EDITOR: Since the warm spring
months have made their appearance,
old Sol retlects the rays of heat like a
burning stove. Bright hope looms

Farmers, doctors, lawyers, merchants,
and politicians, with a measure brim
full of pas-time, can be seen angling
with hook and line, picnicing, etc.
This is the blissful calm that usually
precedes a storm. Way yonder in
the distance, with a noiseless tread,
the approach of Gen. Green can be
iserned. He is standing off now,
idding his time; when the heavens
pen and the needed rain comes down
ad mellows the thirsty earth, there
ill be a giant in the midst of the
armers; and won't your correspond
ets make a howl that will astonish
Panola is booming up abreast of the
imes. With the onward march, our
armers are no laggards. They are
eginning to appreciate and utilize
he modern methods of cultivating
orn and cotton. One fellow is run
ing a big implement acro" his cot
on. The sight was novel to me, and
after looking on a while, the following
ialogue took place: Mr., don't that
bing ruin your cotton ? "No," says
he, "I do the same to my corn; look
ow it works, and see how charming
v it levels the cotton beds."
I don't propose to wvrite up the pic
ic at Flood's Mill. Sammy Swamp,
our lively correspondent, wvas there,
ad has already told you of everything
that occurred, in the uncommion fresh
ess of style, peculiarly belonging to
he fairest and most handsome of all

ified to the end of his boots had he

apt. B., but cannot tell anything
bout what I saw--my honor was put
n the square, especially as to the oc
upants of the carriage-except the
dinner which was so beautifully and
tastefully arranged. Loaded with ev.
ry substantial mortal could wish-as
dl such tables are presided over by
apt. U.-the dinner was a convivial
feast that the gods might envy.
Among the happy couples I saw
Mr. Milligan with his handsome bride,
also young ladies and gentlemen from
umerton, Panola and Fulton. The
former edlitor of the TIMns was on the
grounds and his demeanor throughout
the day would convince an observer
that the little god Cupid, on a perch
anidst the multitude of attractions
presented by "Sammy Swamp," had
sent an unerring shaft, to find a rest
ing place on his susceptible heart.
But I have digressed from my prom-I
ise to only report what I heard. The
gossip of the day was on a volume
of subjects. I beard the opinions of
several gentlemen on nut-grass as a
food for hogs-one said he had kept
eight hogs in good condition, on one
nd one-fourth acres, for a year. I
aave alwvays considered nut-grass an
nemy of farmers, and I would like to:
see others try the experiment. I was
mpjressed also with a remiedy I heard
for killing ground-moles. It is a nov
process, that of placing to each
hill of corn, a cow horn.
That "Boomerang" for "Occasional"
did cap the climax. It looks as if
some of the staff are getting on their
