m:.. glenx's arm crushed.
Mr. Thomas Glenn, locomotive engineer
on tha Southern Railway, met
with a very serious andpaiufal accident
at tbe freight depot on Tuesday
night about half-past nine o'clock.
Mr ii nu was the engineer on a
* u and train, which was at tbe
tiu u standing on the main line.
An her freight train wa3 at the same
time at the depot bound for the North.
It appears th*t Mr. Glenn's train was
to leave after the other pulled out.
He came out o;' his eugine, and lay
down between the main line and the
western side-track, possibly seeking a
cool plu'ce, and had his arm rebting on
the rail of the side track. On thi3
- n ?
side-trace were some cars. air. uibuu
thoaeht the northbound freight was
not on i he side-track and was washing
for it to pall out or leave, but it
backed on the side-track and before he
could get out of danger, the wheel of
a car mentioned as standing on the
side track ran over ins ngai arm,
crushing the bones between the -hand
and tibow. Dr. Hanahan, the local
railroad snrgeon, was summoned and
dressed the wound. Mr. Gienn display
ed remarkable nerre and fortitude.
Although his arm was fearfully
crushed and the pain excruciating, he
talked to those around him calmly directing
ihem what to do. He stated
what he 'wanted taken out of bis
pockets, makiug special mention of a
train order. He was taken to Columbia,
at his own request, on the
sou'hbonud passenge train the same
nigjt. Jti* feared that his arm will
have to be amputated.
Mr. Glenn is a son of the late "'Mr.
Hargrove Glenn, of this county, and
i6 a yonug man of high character and
integrity. He is popular with his
fellow employees, and has the full
cocfidcnce of the railroad officials.
Mr. Glenn has a wife and one cnua,
ana the b.eaking of the news to his
wile seemed to distress him nnie tban
anything else.
?Tbe physician in attendance upon
Engineer Glenn, who had his arm
badly mashed by the train here on
Tuesday uight, thinks that he will be
able to save (he arm, and that amputation
will not be necessary as was at
fir?t feared. However, even shonld
the arm be saved, Mr. Glenn will not
be able to resume his duties for several
months. The encouraging report
from the iojared man is most gladly
received by his friends, as the loss ot
his right arm would ha7e been a
terrible affliction.

Crops in general are doing very i
fvell. The first planting of cotton is ,
looking fine and if seasons suit it will i
nake a tolerably- fair yield. But a ;
number of cur farmers were compelled ]
o plant over on account if irregular ;
;tand<? of the first planting. In euch
jieea it was very backward acout
,'oming up, as tbe groutd wcs too dry
:o eaable the seed to epront. Some
.arms that were planted in cotton,
fvhere a stand was uot obtained, will

Jespondent and aimosi dependent if
JeMa were not the ntver-fai'ing and
ucnrable G'.mtagiou of the farmer. It
an astonishing fact that all, or moat
ill, farmers are compelkd to admit 1
Jiat we will incur debts and then com^lain
anJ say we don't see why it is
.hat farmers are so dependent. To get
3ut of (he ktrnt" will centainly take
more encouraging than we hare ever
known before. We wih have to go
to town" less, raise more grain crop3,
md raise more hogs and stock of ail
tind that should necessarily be raised <
on the farm.
It is not very eucouraging to a
plough-boy?and most of our boys, I
am proud to say, are plough-boys?to
work all day "beneath the hot summer
Krm" ami tro home at night to "turnip
sprouts and bread," not knowing what
be will rcceive in tha fall when tbe
harvest U over. It is too often the
case that after expenses are paid the
bard-workingploogh-boy receives bnt
a smail sum for his year's work; iu
fact, be is considered a lucky boy, and
most certainly he is a saving boy, if he
comes out at the end of the year witb
a few dollars ahead. In view of this
grim, stern fac>, many of our honest
farmer boys are enticed with a longing
desire to leave the dear old home of
youthful years aud go into tbe wide,
wide wcrld to seek a better living.
But it is ganerally the case that they
are sometimes glad to return poorer
and wieer than when firit they vacated
