state Weather service.
The following communication has
been received by Major Pagan from
Mr. Graham, of the State Weather
Service, in regard to weather reports.
It is & good idea and will doubtleks
meet the approval of every one:
4:oLUMIA, S. 0.. 18 May, 1887.
IEAR SiR-I beg to call your atten
tion -to a new feature of dignal Ser.
vice work, in , which you will be
interested. It is desired to have
reliable reports giving the fibets of the
weather during each week, on the
various staple crops of the State.
These reports, when contiensed by
me, will be telegraphed from Colum.
bia to the Chief Signal office, at
Washington D. O. every Saturday,
and a special bulletin, containing re
liable information relative to the cli
matio conditions vbhtoh have existed
the previous week in the agricultural
districts of the country, will be given
to the press every Monday. This
information, when compared with the
accurate. meteorological data collected
by the Signal Service. will serve as a
reliable basis for determining .'the
conditions favorable or unfavorable
for the growing crop.
Assuming that you will assist us,
far as possible, in this important work,
I enclose herewith cards on which
please give such items as relate to the
subject-for example: Say, weather
favorable during week (or so many
d ) for cotton? corn? oats? etc. etc.,
ligt showers at night? warm days,
sufficient sunshine, good growing
weather, too much rain, too dry, too
warm, too cold, etc. etc., (as case may
be) and in fhot any information you
may deem important to the subject
These cards should be mailed to
Columbia so as to reach me on each
Saturday. It is desirable that they be
as complete as possible, and cover
as much of the current week as
practicable, and therefore they should
be held by you for the last mail that
wilibring them to me in time to be of
use. The report, if possible, should
cover the date on which it is made
and the six preceding days and mailed
in time to reach me on Saturday.
The following letter from D. W.
Frazier, a former citizen of our county
to his father, has been handed us with
the request that it be published, in
order that his friends may know
something of his living in Liberia.
Hie was sent' to'that country several
years ago by the Northern Presby
terian Church as a missionary, and as
will be seen aby his letter is well
pleased with the country, and has
accumulated some pr'operty since he
went there. He visited his former
home in this county last year.

all but the partitions in the up-stairs

indeed. I am glad that you received
the money sent you, but I do not like
the idea of so long a delay before you
send acknowledgement of the same.
It gave me no little uneasiness not
knowing whether or not you had re

that there was nothing much to be
