Are ready for grinding the new crop

wheat before grinding, instead af mecas

to have your wheat dry, and make c

The lust two weeks in May we farm

rained just enough to keep the land
too wet to plough nearly all the time.
Only about three days ploughing was
done within the two weeks. But I
must say that I heard less grumbling.
I hope that this is an evidence of a fact
that the people are growing better. We
must learn to reconcile our minds to
the providential dealings of God.
Last week, and this, up to this writ
ing, has been fine weather, and the
people have certainly made good use of
the time. The most of them put in
about fourteen hours of actual work a
day. In fact we never saw farm work
pushed forward any better. This week
will about wind up harvest, and the
principal part of the cotton will be

The towns and cities are continually
Inviting and encouraging capital and
interprises of various natures, and
most everything of this nature is float
ing to town.' We ilke to see the towns
build up, and so far as cotton and oil
mills are cone led they belong to
town where they can have full access
to shipping. But, dear old country, we
must not let everything drift off to
town. We have several interprizes in
our country that we feel proud of. Dr.
W. T. Dickert, our country doctor, is
not only attentive and kind to the sick,
but he is also successful in his prac
tice, and we are proud of him. Mr.
Perry HIalfaero has one of the be ,t grist
mills and cotton gins that can be start
ed anywhere. Mr. W. D). Hlalfacre r'uns
a wood and blacksmith shop near Mr.
D. A. Ruff and 3. K. Epps both run
sarghum mills that can't be excelled.
Ruff & Co. has two stores right near
St. Philip. Bolnest & Co. runs a saw
mill, cotton gin and thresher, and
their work always gives p)erfect satis
faction. Mr. G. M. Singley & Sons
run a grist mill and cotton gin that is
hard to beat. Mr. G. L. Sease runs a
saw and grist mill and thresher. Ev

There is Jefferson Quattlebaum. the
old reliable, who runs a wood shop,
and is hard to crowd when it comes to
making most any kind of fut'niture.
Hero is Mr. E. L. Strauss, runs a store
right near our home, who keeps a full
line of groceries and confectioneries,
and is able to compete with any of
your town merchants.
Just a little fur'ther over is our young
friend J. D. Quattlebaum with his
blacksmith and wood shop, and he.ls
not only liberal in his charges, but
what he does is doncf right.
We also learn that Mtr. Luther Chap
man is preparing to run a canning
business, and wvill can for the public
this summer as cheap as anybody..
We m~ust not forget to mention our
frilend, Mr. M. L. Strauss, who runs a
large lean business, to the accommoda
tion of many, far and near.
Now If I have left out any public en
terprising citizen within this territory,
it IS simplly an oversight, and is not In
tended by any means. Those enter
prises that I have mentioned may seem
small in the eyes of those who are
building cotton mills and other large
factories, but they are every one of
great importance to we country people,
and we are pr'oud of them.
My dear people, don't lose sight of
country industries. We need more of
them. We want to see some one in this
surrounding put urp a roller flour mill.
We learn that Mr. Perry Hlalfacre was
thInking over the matter. We hope he
will soon decide to add this much more
to his other machinery. I feel sure
that it would prove a paying Invest
It was real amusing to read Tillman's
and McLaurin's fit of passion. The
whole combustible was nothing more
or less than a matter of pretense. It
reminded me of our little boy and.his
pet hen. For a long time the boy
watched his hen very faithful. The
hen alungs went on her nest, laid, and
came off about the same time every day.
Finally she went on one morning and
stayed on all day. The little fellow
concluded late in the evening that his
hen had been on her nest long enough
and he politely lifted her off. mai mo
ther said, Clyde, what Is the matter
with your old hen, is she setting?
Clyde answered, no mami, she's just
making out that she wants to set. I
supposei Tillmanl thought that Me lau
rin had been on his nest, long enough
and that he would lift, him oil. Neither
of theml had any idea of resitgning. It's
at pity that Governor McSweeney didn't
accept their resignation so that tho
people of South Carolina could have
shown them that thitr places could
have been tilled many times with just
as good, worthy and competent men as
they. Too much hostility! We believe
that whenever a man begins to think
that this world can't get along without
him, and that he's carrying 70,000 or
80,000 votes in his pants pocket, it is
just simply time to show him his weak
