SWEET SUMMER IS DYING.
by jennie joy,
Tub umn^iui looked at tTic maples, ? ^
Mrof? oil '.lie village green :
Ami lo ! (V.ore,wore great red sploshes*
All over their leafy Hheen:
And I naul, "'Tis the Bummer's life blood?
Time's sickle hath touched her heart!
Sweet 8ummcJ, dear summer is dying;
Oh, how can wc two ever part?
Sho came, and she brought mc red roses?
They matched well the brown of ray hair:
And "somebody'''called mo his "darling 1", ,
For Rumnfcr had made mo seem fair;
So warm was her breath, I had wandered
Adowli by a shadowy stream?
And "somebody"'else loved the shadows,
And sweet was love's sumincr-wrougbtdrcam.
But eunhncr, sweet suinmcr! is dying?
All chilly ond damp is her breath ;
She's taking the brightness ad with her,
And leaving but darkness and death;
And sad grows my heart ns 1 witness
The glory th'nt heralds decay,
And feel that sweet summer is drifting,
Slow drifting, sure drifting away.
If f^b.e could have stayed till the orango
Had blossomed h:r buds for my hair, *
I still had been "somebody's" darling,
To "somebody" still bad been fair;
But orange-buds ope best when summer
Flings zephyrs from Angers rose-tipped ;
Love's roses grow brightest when moistened
By kisses from seasons red-lipped.
(x( Hi ft i ii?
But summer, sweet suinmcr! is dying,
Her kisses grow painfully cold?
All drooping the fringe of her eyelids,
And damp is her hair's gleaming gold;
And out. from her heart's torn centre
There comes a low quivering moan ;
I stretch out my arms to detain her?
She has passed !?1 am weeping alone !

Our County Fair.
At the time of out next issue, in all
likelihood, our County Fair will be in
full blast, and wc desiro to embrace this
last opportunity to urge our farmers up
to the full measure of their duty in this
The Directors have faithfully per
formed their part ungrudgingly, and, as
we said before, at great personal sacri- J
ficc, and it remains now for the farmers
to complete what they have begun, by
allowing nothing to prevent their attend
ance at the Fair, and (what is equally
important) by each one becoming an i:x
A recent *visit to tho grounds shows
that preparations arc being mado on a!
grand scale for the amusement of visi
tors. .. TherPair Building is being rap
idly completed, and is, beyond doubt,
the finest in the State, though not the
laigcst.- The vast room on the upper
floor, connected.with the lower by a wide
staircase, is admirably adapted for the
L>adics Department of Fancy Work, and
for the Household and Art Departments.
The view is splendid, from the many
windows of this hall, and is alono well
worth a visit. On the lower floor the
Departments of "Field Crops, "Mrcnniig
ics," &c'J .will be exhibited. The Com
mittee roomsj two in number, are also on
this llooi'^j Ono of these has been se
cured by.jyir.*W. A. Mcroncy, as a Re
freshment Room, where the wants of the
inner marrenn be, tit all limes, supplied
with cither sub.slMitials or delicacies.
The stables for the exhibition of Stock
are the best wc have ever seen, the stalls
numbering thirty-eight for horses alone
?many of these havo been engaged and
a re'pi a card cd with the exhibitor's names,
The arena, or circle for driving and ex
hibiting stock is being raidly finished,
and i:i in the rear of the building; a neat,
stand for tho music (furnished by a full
brass baud from Charleston) will be in
the centre of this.

Mr. Editor :
The quarterly meeting of ^liO|. Orange
burg Agricultural Society will bo held
on tho 2d Saturday in November next.
As a member of that association I should
like to hear discussed several matters
which, to my mind, aro of vital impor
tance to tho farmers of our county:
1st. Fertilisers. ,a\Vhat is tho experi
ence of tho members this year? What
pays best ?
2d. Who has planted oats? Of what
kind?on'wliat kind of land? Was it
manured ? What has been tho yield ?
Does it pay ?
3d. Has any member : made hay ? IfJ
so, how done? Does it pay better than
4th. Peas, for green crop to turn un
der. Has any member tried it ? if so ;
with what result? ,
5th. Drainage. The foundation of all
good and successful farming. Have any
of the members underdraincd ? if so;
how done, and at what cost ?
