Mr. Samuel Lockhart has pur chased several acres of land in South Camden, and we are reliably informed that he contemplates re moving his flouring mill and saw mill from Green Brier to this place as soon as the necessary arrange mentscanbe made. Sufficient cap- ital is assured for putting in a new plant with all modern improve ments, new machinery, and new improvements in the way of build ings and accommodations for large number of famifies. Wheat on Corn Land. A successful old farmer of our acquaintance tells us he has con vinced his neighbors that a good crop of wheat is hardly ever raised on land after a crop of corn. He says year before last he put 3 acres of tobacco land in wheat and made CO bushels. His nearest neighbor sowed down 15 acres of corn land in wheat and made but 45 bushels of a very inferior luality- We be' Keve it is universally admitted that tobacco land Srows tlie best wheat bf r tannen generally put wueiib on coin lauu. x eriiaus mis is the very reason the wheat crop of Benton County is generally a failure. Small Fruit Farming. Along the Louisville and Nash. ville Railroad from Milan to Mem. phis, immense quantities of straw berries, white potatoes, and toma toes are grown and shipped to northern markets. As strawber ries are always the earliest fruit to ripen, it commands high prices and has become a source uf profit and large revenue to those who culti vate them. New potatoes are ship ped in early March, and bring in a fair profit. Early tomatoes are a source of considerable revenue, and always find a market. Benton County is as well adapted as to cli mate and soil as any portion of ennessee for the successful grow ing of these crops, and we are sur prised that our people do not take hold of it, as they are a money crop.
