We have~~fo doubt that the end of
Governor Ellerbe's life was accelerated
by the duties of his ofibe, and in this
sense it may be truthfully said that
he gave his life for the service of his

The recent showers have been very
beneficial to everything, although we
could take a good season now. There
are a few of our farmers that are
about through chopping cotton; some
are just commencing. The cotton has
been rather slow about coming up,
especially on high places. Young
corn which was planted before the
showers of last week is up to a perfect
stand and looking well. Old corn is
also doing well considering the
drought it has had to stand.
Gardens are a failure, owing, we
suppose, to the dry weather and the
appearance of numerous kinds of
insects, some of which are playing
havoc with cabbage and in some
places completely destroying Irish
potato vines. They seem to be worse
-on Irish potatoes than other plants.
The small grain crop is being har
vested. jut now. Oats are better
than was at one time expected. The
stalk is rather short, but it has a very
heavy grained head, which makes
even better food for stock than if
The wheat crop also is better than
was expected, especially where the
stand was thin. This fact can very
easily be accounted for, though as the
lack of rain at the appropriate time
caused the numerous branches that
always come from the main root to be
less than would have been had there
been a superfluity of water at the dif
ferent stages of its growth; thereby
giving the remaining branches the
advantage of the seanty moisture and
rainfall of April and May. The head
in such cases is heavy enough, being
ertra large for the stalk.
The fruit crop was almost com
pletely destroyed by the cold weather
in the early spring, only leaving a
few apples, and almost all of those
have fallen off.

GREENiBRIEE AFJE AIRS.
After the very wet and exceedingly
cold winter we have had a very dry
spring. The farmers were very ba,k
ward in preparing their lands and
planting their crops. There was a
great deal of wheat and oats sown
during the fall and winter. The early
sown will make a fair crop, but the
late will be-almost a complete failure.
The eorn crop, though very irregular,
is looking very well. Cotton on
Sandy land is generally a good stand
and has a healthy appearance; that on
clay land is coming up nicely and
with another good rain would be
ready for working in a few days.
Our farmers are preparing and ex
pecting to sow a large pea crop. They
are of necessity beginning to realize
the importance of building up and
improving their land. This they can
do by planting peas much cheaper
and quicker than with cemmcrcial
fertilizers. We are beginning to
realize the fact that we will have to
turn our attention to something be
sides the cultivation of cotton.
Several nice barns will be erected
during thd summer, and each one, I
think, will shelter a nice bunch of
cattle next winter. This is also an
excellent way of improving our worn
The Greenbrier school, which has
been in charge *of Miss Bessie Lyles
for the two past years, closed a most
successful term a few weeks ago.
The trustees, freeholders and pa
trons, realizing the importance of im
proving our school, held a meeting on
May 29th 'and by a unanimous vote
levied an extra tax of two mills, and
also voted to consolidate the three
schools and have a graded school, to
be. located niear the cross-:oads just
south of Capt. J. RI. Delleney's. The
trustees hope to establish a school
fully eq"al to any in the county. They
will commence work~ on the new
