THE PROGRESSIVE FARMER, DECEMBER 8, 1886
i : ' 5 December 4 23. 5 27. 6 32. There were 49 accessions .to the Methodist Protestant Church in Winston during the recent revival. Mr. Cicero Tise has had a 12-horse engine put in his new building to operate the elevator and heat the house. There were heavy breaks of tobacco last weeK, nut since the snow storm of Friday night the warehousemen have had a vacation. Some of the sidewalks in Winston and Salem have been improved within the past week with the application of a coat of broken rock and sand. J. I. Butner, county superintendent of schools, will be at the court house on the 9th, 10th and llth inst., to examine applicants for teacher's certificates. The storm which set in Friday night was general throughout the rountry. The snow fall in this section was remark ably heavy, six or seven inches. Further North it was much deeper, filling up railroad cuts and deranging railroad travel. We sympathize with Dr. and Mrs. J. (i. Ector in the loss of their little daugh ter Erne, aged eight years, who died of membranous croup last Friday night. Sunday night, Sallie, a bright little four year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Martin, died of the same disease. Temperature for the past seven days, taken at 9 a. m., by a Signal Service Thermometer, at Ashcraft fc Owens' drug store : November 30 55. December 150. " 231. " 332. The Board of County Commissioners met Monday and spent the day and Tuesday in auditing pauper claims and examining the bonds of the county officers elect. Mr. Henry Fries, repre sentative elect to the legislature, resigned his place in the county board of educa tion, and Mr. F. D. L. Messer was elected to fill the vacancy. A Fixe Cow. Mr. R. T. Stedman, of Winston, lias added to his herd a thor ! oughbred Holstein cow, bred in Massa chusetts, which gave at two years old seven gallons of milk a day. It is believed that when fully developed she will reach ten gallons a day. He has also a bull calf out of her, which will be old enough for service next spring, and a Holstein heifer which will calve next spring. Mr. S. believes in good stock. The Methodist Conference which assembled in Reidsville bust week, ad journed Monday night after a very inter esting session. It was very largely attended, there being between four hun dred and five hundred clerical and lay delegates present. The trial of Dr. Bag well, formerly pastor of the M. E. Church in Winston, lasted several days, and finally resulted in his conviction and expulsion. Ex-Gov. Jarvis (Minister to Brazil) and wife are on their way home. They arrived in New York Sunday. We thank the Fisherman and Farmer, of Edenton, for a very clever reference to this paper, which we appreciate. There is good, instructive reading in Trinity Club's discussion of winter work on the farm, published on the first page of this paper. It is full of good, sound sense and wise suggestions. The Roanoke 'News very sensibly remarks: "Farmers should use less guano and diversify their crops as much as possible, raising everything on the farm that they need as far practicable." The young ladies of Goldsboro have organized a social cooking club, which meets once a week and to which the young men are invited. The girls do the cooking and the boys eat and pass judg ment. That's a . nice thing, especially for the boys. The Chatham Home has closed its third volume and enters upon its fourth with an increased list of subscribers and flattering prospects. We congratulate Mr. Merritt on his well-merited success. It speaks well for the people of a county when their Iiome papers are well sus tained. Ox-cxa4 oJL . V-At the meeting of the State Board of Agriculturin Ralefgh, last Thurs day, it was' ordered that the necessary steps be taken at onetowards the adop tion of a plan for the inauguration and construction of the industrial school buildings. A resolution was also passed urging the legislature to enact such laws as will prohibit dealing in "futures" in this State. A movement is on foot in the North to organize J a .Jfatiohal . Union, Labor party. A convention has been called to meet at Cincinnati !on 22nd of February next, to which all organizations in favor of the movement are invited to send delegates. On the 31st of October there were in South Carolina 954,237 acres of land forfeited to the State for non-payment of taxes. This makes an area of 1,481 square miles, one-twentieth of the whole territory of the State. The amount of taxes due is $384,050. We are informed by Messrs. Louis Bagger fc Co., solicitors of patents, Wash ington, D. C, that. for the week ending November 30, forty-one patents were granted to citizens of Southern States, among them one to A. G. Butterfield, of High Point, N. C, for car-brake. There is bad blood between James G. Blaine and Senator Edmunds, of Vermont. They accidentally met at the funeral of ex-President Arthur, when Mr. Edmunds extended his hand, which Mr. Blaine declined to shake, but ab ruptly turned his back and walked away. Farmers, do not allow a bone to go to waste oil vour place. Put a half bushel of strong ashes in a barrel and ten gallons of water and into this throw all the bones from your table. Save every handful of ashes and utilize them as in the manner stated in The Prookes sive Farmer. Now is the time to begin to make manure for the next year's crops. Do not throw your stable manure out in the yard to be robbed of its best manurial properties by the action of rain and sunshine.
