The conditions of the weather are

The directors of the Farmers' Alli
ance warehouses held a meeting here
on last Friday, and some of the pre
liminary arrangements looking to
wards the erection of a brick fire-proof
building were made. A committee, con
sisting of Rev. J. A. Sligh, Hon. R. T.
C. Hunter and J. T. P. Crosson, were
appointed toreceive bids for the build
ing of the warehouse at this place.
Prof. E. J. Brown, of Ohester, S. C.,
has been elected principal of Pros
perity High School, and Miss Lillian
Luther assistant teacher. Prof. Brown
comes highly recommended, and has
five years, experience in teaching.
Miss Lillian taught in this school last
year, and her early re-election is an
evidence of her fitness as a teacher.
The only mark of improvement
which can as yet be observed here by
the building of C. N. and L. road is
the contemplated Alliance warehouse.
The road will be completed to this
place before May 1st, and yet there is
nothing at all being done to either
build up or beautify the town. Cot
tages and dwelling houses are in de
mand for rent, and still there is not a
propertyv owner erecting one. The
town is without form or shape, and if
we are to have a town, there should be
some steps taken to- lay of the place
with some -degree of system, with a
view of opening wide new streets. We
have frequently been asked, "where
will your new depot be located," we
answer, we don't know. There are
only two places at or in town bS' which
a depot could be reached, and they are
at Wheeler & Moseley's mill, and at a
point near Dr. McFall's where the
railroad crosses t.he street, and at these
places a wagon cannot turn around.
There is private property at all other
places along the road with no street
touching or crossing it. The railroad
(urniishes the opportunity for improve
ment,but we are slow to take advantage
of it. No houses, no Buildingand Loan
Association to aid a poor man to bulid,
no inducements held out to people to,
come here, no nothing. We have only
to go a few miles down this new road
and we find at Chapin and near Spring
Hill a spirit of enterprise which will
insure a town. There you find the
places beautifully laid out in large
squares and lots, with wide streets, and
a large and convenient lot given the
railroad fora. depot, and the lota are
sold remarkably cheap-some given
away-and buildings are going up.
The people there have an interest in
their places and will build them up.
Here if a man wants to purchase a lot,
he is asked a life-time living for it, and
the result ishe goes away disheartened.
We sometimes think that our people
think that our place is sufficiently
large-that we don't want any nmore
population-don't want any more
stores-don't need any factories-don't
need a national bank-don't need any
more railroad facilitIes-don't need any
more streets-they would go through
somebody's land. In a word, our cup
is full and running over, and we cry
enough, enough, let us rest. Rest in

Well, the corn crop is about made,
and, upon an average, is about as good
as could be expected. So the question
now is, what about king cotton? This
is the crop that is agitating the minds
of the most of our people, both in and
out of town. This is the crop that will
soon put speculation on a boom, and
also give work to many idle hands
that have been waiting patiently until
the crop was made and gathered. Well,
we farmers have nothing more than
this to say: We have labored hard,

this part. We have taken the liberty

Wrapped in. But some of the cottpn
exchanges have said it will not be re
ceived in the cotton bagging. If it is
not put up in jute it will probably have
tb be sold at a sacrifice to the farmers. e
Now, fellow farmers, if there is not ~
some way lin which to pluck out that
kind of middle men, we would just as -
well tlbrow up our hands and quit.
