Shipped Cotton
Recently we made the acquaint
ance of Mr. Stephen Hicks, who has
lived in the valley all his life, and
who now resides with his son-in-law,
II. A. Peck, near the Francis Spring.
He is thoroughly posted on the
events of this section for the past
century, and he informed us that in
1838 a Mr. Kelley and others, cot
ton raisers, made up a large cargo of
cotton, loaded it onto a flat boat on
the Sequacliec River, and took it to
New Orleans themselves and sold it-
He also said that shipments by wa
ter from the Seouachee River to
Jpiusiana. ports at that time aud la
ter were quite frequent, which is a
strong argument that as the Se
quachee River was formerly navtea-
me it could be made so again, and
although the U. S. Engineer in 1891
taking his observation from a -rail
road car, reported to Congress against
the project urged at the time, stil
witn tms eviaence m view it seems
that Sequachee River could be racje
navigable if n,p,t aH ftf the way to
Dunlap at least part of the way.

His Idea of Joyous June.
Bob Taylor's descriptions of the
seasons are most beautiful and to
pick them out would belike pick
ing the most beautiful diamond
out of a tray of the same karat and
water. What can be more beautN
ful and poetic that the following
description of a June morning,
which is the picture of a delight
ful spot where he wrote 'Senti
ment," on the Nolachucky river:
"I saw June unbar a gate of ros
es, and the sweet scented morning
came forth from tbe pavilion of
enamored night, bearing in her
girdle of light the keys to a thous
and heavens I saw her kindle a
sun in every dew drop, and touch
the waiting hills with glory; I
caught the odor of honeysuckles,
aud the note of a lark as it rose
exultant from the meadows. I saw
the glimmer of painted wings
among the clover blossoms, and
heard the hum of teeming bees,
rich with, the spoils of plundered
beauty. I heard a. redbird sound
his lute, and a thrush thrill his
madrigals of love in a tangled tree
top; I heard the oriole ring his sil
ver bells in the dusky chambers of
the forest; 1 saw the green trail of
a winding river and heard the low
music of its joyous waters, dashing
among the rocks of distant rapids.
I beard the shouts and splashes
of noisy boys down at the old
swimming hole, under the spread
ing elme; I saw a lovesick lad
meet his sweetheart down in a
shady lane and take her girlish
hand in his and kiss her under the
locust bloom. A jaybird sat on a
hicko.rv limb, and he winked at
me and I winked at him. It car
ried me back thirty Junes to the
hanDV davs when I was fond of
the Bhady lane. Oh, beautiful
dream, maker, voluptuous June,
sweet enchantress of the sun; Eden
builder of the world: there is
magic in tny loucn wmea mens

makes the tropic bhTod of youth
