Rowosville, Mach :M. -- The second
act in' tho Bonaparte jail delivery wa:
worked out in Rowesvillo yesterday
and thu third act will follow in the
courts in Oranixebuarg.
it will be remonbored that The State
a few wuoks ago had a story of on
Jako Bonaparto wtao resisted arrest in
liowosvillo and was subsequently ar
restod and then relased from tho gaurd
house by friends who broke the lock
on the door. Iriday Edward Lesosne
was arrested in Rowesvillo and taken
to Orangoburg. On the way to that
city he confessed that he was one of
five who broke into the gaurd house
and released Bonaparte and implicated
four others.
Lesosne was employed by the J. H.
Blako Lumber company at the time of
the jail delivery and together with
Scott Dwight loft at midnight when it
was probable that Boaparte would be
arrested in Fort Motte. Before leaving
they admitted to other negroes that
they broke the lock on the guard house
door and at that time said they alone
were responsible. Lesesne came back
to the vicinity of Rowesville last week
as a workman on a construction train
on the Southern, and a negro who
knew him told the town officials and
the arrest was made. He then impli
ctted Jerry Somers and Rufus Odum,
two negroes employed by the lumber
company, and Wesley Martin, a negro
about the town. Oflicers Smith and
Boone placed the three men unaer ar
rest Saturday night and they were
taken to Orangeburg, whore it was ex
pected they would be held for the
higher court.

We made an average of seventy bush
31s and nearly one-half corn per acre
last year without using the hand hoe
at any time, neither did we thin the
orn. It was left in the row iust as
the planter dropped it. Our plans for
this year's corn crop on upland is rows
;ix feet,and land bodded out in the fall
lnd January.
Will plant in water furrow from
middle to last of March, if weather
permits. Our low bottom lands were
bedded out with two-horse plows in
January and February in beds ton feet
wide, barrowing top of beds as fast as
plowing goes on. Two rows will be
planted on tou of this bed in Mrach
four feet anart, hill two feet. This
will leave six feet betwonn water furrow
Fide and four feet apart on top of bed.
Cultivaiton will be as near this plan
as weather will admit. About the time
corn begins to poop out of the ground
the weeder will be run over lengthwise
and in from five to seven days run
crossways on bottom lands, but may
have to run over twice on upland with
the rows before crossing on account of
coverintr corn down in the fnrrow.
If the weeder pulls down too much
dirt in water furrow in the bottom
lands 'io will run out water furrows
with large middle buster or double
