We cannot describe this stock
somcly. Farmers as a rule lui ve a
moro diversiiied, crop this year
than ever before. They lire try
ing to make their supplies at home
or as near v.) as possible
Wo aro needing rain to bring the
cotton up; good stand of corn geu
orally, and a larger area than usual
planted. Small grain needing rain'
badly, 1 have noticed u great many
preparations for ncceleratlng the
progress of vegetation, ami I will
mention one 1 do not recollect ev
er seeing. According lo Mr. Hum
boldt, Oxymurintie acid or Oxalic
acid dilide<l with water produces a
wonderful effect. Seed thrown in
the fluid at a temperature of about
88 degrees showed germs in three
hours; seed ono hundred years old
were made to vegetate: it caused
the growth of seed that ha 1 resist
ed every other method. About a
nickie's worth of the Ucl I to two
gallons of water would be sufficient
I presume, but as it is p liscnous,
caution should be exercised in ex
perimenting; with it.
We note the following vlstors to
our little village during the week;
the able, dignified ?iud courteous
Judge Norton; our goolul School
( lomillissioncr Bullock ; Dr. Shaml,
a director of the (J. C. A- A. IC lt.,
looking after tin? the interest of
said railroad. We know that we
have tlie sympathy of the Dr. in
the matter and we hope that ("ross
Hill will be a point directly on the
("apt. Dwight ami his efficient
corpse have left us. He made two
experimental surveys in our neigh
borhood this time; one of them
very neiir to Cross Hill, and tile
om- which we oro led to believe
will be adopted-so mote it be.
Ii ''lui" of the ?li'rabi had chan
ced to drop into our Academy du
ring "recess," he would have seen
that "crocheting" was the favorite
amusement, and if he had thou
seen or heard thom examined on
their studies, he would most assu
redly have gone away convinced
that there is nothing the least "hoi
deillsh" about the Cross Hill school
girls, and that he had .seen as in
teresting samples of beautiful nee
dle-work and pretty, intelligent
girls as he ever saw, notwitstaml
lllg he may bo over so fastidious.
Not it great deal of sickness in
our community now. The family
circle of W. B. Fuller has been 011
Iurged by the advent of a "bounc
ing boy," and the hearts of the pa
rents are made to beat with joy
Dr. Martin, the dentist, is very
popular in our little village. Ho
is in town now, finishing a nice job.

C0NTAGI0U3 EYE DISEASES.
How Tiir.v Am S|II-?-.-??I i?y TOWCIHI Filed
To mention a few of the modes nf eon-*
tagion, I have to ; .peak, in the I ?rsl placet
of towel , cs|>eeially of that abominable
institution known ?is tho roller lowe!,
which has been used BO much in asylums
evhero forty, fifty or more children uso
thc same towel. Whether they have grtUl:
ular lids or not. True, ir. . great many
of these eases the existence of. granular
lids was not known; but even in casca iii
which the existence of the disenso was
evident, the ignorance or carolossnos.! of
tho persons in charge has allowed trans
mission by mean? of towels lo O?M of
tho most frequent sources of contagion.
As a carrier of the contagion the housd
fly plays nu important role, especially in
cases rf young children who are not able
to proteel themselvci against thu visits of
this little animal. Attracted by tho
sweetish oder ? f thc discharge it will sot
tie ?I?>D:I Ibo eves of Children affected
with th> disenso, especially infant;?, und
carry the contagion in its claws to tin
other eve or the eyes of sleeping infants.
Spectacle.-, maybe tho carrier of tilt:
contagion, 1 remember the caso of a
young lady who could not explain satis
factorily how .she came to hav e granular
lids. Upon her return to school she men
tioned that .she had granular lids, where*
upon one of her classmates said: "Why,
that is the disease which I have lieon suf
fering from for the last six months."
This classmate was near sighted and used
glasses. My patient was abo near sighted,
but had not us-d glasses, and wh'-nevor
she wanted to see anything ?lt a distance
she was in the habit of borrowing tho
s)HH taeles of her friend, and there is no
doubt in my mimi that this was tho
means of carrying the poison from tho
classmate's ev e to my patient's eye.
Children with granular lids are very
apt to rub the eyes, because the secre
tion, as ii liegins to dry on the edge of
the liils, causes an irritating, itching
sensation. They will now play with other
children, and from their hands transfer
the poison to tho hands of tho other chil
dren, and these latter rubbing their eyes
contract the disease. Handling objects
which have lieon used lljf granular lids
patients may bo the means of carrying
the contagion. A young lady who vol
unteered to teach children affected with
granular lids, and who had been isolated
from other children in a certain institu
tion, Was warne I to IK- extremely cari ltd
with regard lo using handkerchiefs,
towels, or anything which belonged to
thc children. She w.-e; well aware of tho
danger, and promised to be very careful.
She handled nothing whatever, she said,
that Munged lo the children, left her
doak outside, and in tho eins? room kept
away from the children a distance of liva
or six foot, lint upon examination of her
eyes, fourteen days alter she had taken
ellice, it was found that slit} liogan losilf
fer with granular lids. Upon impiirv I
found thal she had taken copylmoks and
slate, of thc children for correction, and
in all probability she got the poison from
the slates and books on her hands and
then conveyed it to her eyes. A teacher
of another section in the same institution
was moro careful; she simply walked int??
? the class room, did not touch tiny thing
belonging to the children, and for two or
three months, during tho duration of Ibis
epidemic, she waa not air?ete I bv tile dis
ease. Tho atmosphere had evidently not
lioen the carrier of the contagion in tho
llrst ease.- Mellie; land Surgical Uepoi'ter.
The "IN.Ison Willi!" or th* Hl??|ic,
.*Tlie |H>ople liv ing nu tho bluffs of tho
Missouri in Dakota sillier severely from
Rand storms," said a man from thc Til
lare country yesterday, and I hear your
people think their cup of misery is over
flowing when a blizzard swoops down
upon them; bm of all the winds that
blow the '(HMSOII wind' of the slope is
perhaps the worst. This wind affects
man. Iieasl, fruit, tree and flower with
its baleful effects. The skin of the hu
man being becomes dry and nnesuffcrs
; tho excruciating pnngfi of thirst, ( '.Mle
evince peculiar nervousness and thirst,
while th.- milk supply diminishes. Horses
! seem to- lost? their breath and suffer from
, fatigue. In the vegetable kingdom tho
fruit and other trees exposed to the windi
present a. dried up. and burned appear
ance. Apples which on one side aro not
ripe an- withered where exposed. Un
welcome as this wind is in autumn its
moro disastrous effects aro felt in tho
spring, when young fruit and grains uro
often blighted within un Itou? after tho
