Early in the spring Mr. S. A. Rig.

Wagener & Co., of Charleston, Mr.
Rigby agreeing to allow Mr. McLeod
Charleston prices for the same. This
was the first bale of cotton received
by Mr. Rigby, and the first brought
to Manning. Mr. McLeod wonth

We have a curiosity in the Tnns
office, from a field of corn belonging
to Mr. D. T. Legg. It is four average
ears of corn, well formed and fully
matured, grown on a stalk of corn,
from one shoot. We have often heard
of as many ears on a stalk, but have
never heard of, or saw before, so many
ears produced from one shoot. It is

the bucket haule again, he opened
the way into an unoccupied cell, which

ready egress to the passage. When

by a boiler explosion in the saw mill
