Last week wve took our annual trip to
Freshley 's Crossing on Broad River to
look after the finny tribe. We were
'forcibly impressed at the appearance
and fine condition of the crops all along
the route of thme C. & G. Railroad. Evi
dently the land and the crops are in a
much better condition than they havc
been for years past. We saw some as
fine wheat Us ever gro~ws in thlis coun
try. Oats is below the average. Every
body, both in Fairfield and Lexington
Counties, is jubilant over the present
crop prospects'. After en joying the hos

comrd(es for t wo days and niights, and]
catching about three hundred pounds of
cat-fish, wve returned well pleased, but
nearly sick front eating too many rich,
