"You may come down." The jury

NOTES FROM BETHEL.
BETHEL, June 10.-I will state briefly
the condition of crops and general
progress of our immediate community.
We have had nice rains up to the
present. Upland corn as a general
thing is looking very well, especially
where manured. Bottom corn most
all late as they were wet at the regular
time for planting. Most all of the fall
oats were killed. Spring oats and the
fall oats that were left are very good.
Cotton is not looking so well, owing
to the cool wea-he'r, but seems to b
growing very well since the warm
weather set in.
There has been some reduction in
the acreage of the cotton crop tis
year, and a great deal more cirn has
been planted. There has been a great
many peas planted for early feed and
a great many more will bem planted.
Bethel Church is now beigg comn
ple-,d, and judging from its looks inow
