Killehrew for a basket of tnoM excellent grapes grown in Sequachee Valley near the town of Sequachee. ly (. Sherman. The grapes are white and" of the Niagara variety. They are delicioiwly sweet, and seem to have good shipping qualities Fin er bunehes and better flavored grapes have never come to the Nashville market. Some of the bunches are fully eight inches long; all of them are compact, and not an imperfect grape can bo found on them. Sir. Sherman states that he raised and put on the market last year 5,000 ten-pound baskets, besides making 00 gallons of excellent wins. This year, notwithstanding the damage to! the fruit buds by the severe cold last winter, his crop will make over 4,000 i baskets. Mr. Sherman sayB the de-' mand at local points far exceeds the( been finished. Hupply, and the grapes are preferred j W. A. Thomas, of Macon, Ga., in every mai ke; to which they are ' was found dead iu the Broadway shipped and placed on sale. At i house at Nashville. first there was some prejudice exist-1 rjhas. Turner, who was watching ing against the white grape, but this : tw0 negroes fight was shot to death prejudice has been dissipated, and!at Murfreesboro. the demand tor tlie Niagara grapes as growing much more rapidly than , the present or early prospective sup- ply. It would be well for our fruit growers to make a note of the condi tion of the market and take advan tage of it. Mr. Sherman thinks there can scarcely be any limit to the possibilities of grape culture in the Sequachee Valley uuder proper con ditions and intelligent management. American.

The deception is reprehensible, but the meat ia all right. A juicy Texas angora is a liout as toothsome to a white mau as a rat is to a Chinaman or a baked dog to an Indian. The angora is all right.
