CLIFTON VILLE LETTER.
liUCAMA LETTER. , We are glad to welcome to our desk this week a copy of The Wilsgn Times. We like the Times splendidly and reccommend it to our county friends. We are also eiad that Mr. K H. Watson, one of the most succesful farmers of Wilson county has decided to write a letter for the Times every week on tobacco farming. The Wil son Times is a new weekly paper pub lished in Wilson. We are proud to see our county at the front with two good weekly papers and many other im provements. We are glad to speak a good word to our farmers of Wilson county7 as it has some as good farmers as there is in the State. We have several good tobacco and cotton farm ers in Taylors township. The farmers of our township are preparing for large tobacco crops. It was reported to us a few days ago that some of our farm ers' ( tobacco plants are now up and growing. We are afraid the cold wave we had last week will damage plants now up. We are glad to say that we believe the most of our farmers of our township are out of debt and some of them that we know are making money and running their business for cash which is a good sign. If Wilson county continues to cultivate tobacco as it does now we believe it will be the leading tobacco county of the State. The farmers have as good a market to sell their tobacco and cotton in the town of Wilson as there is in the State. The market always pays the highest market prices for all grades of cotton .and tobacco. Whenever the farmers of this county begin to make more meat and hominy and do a cash business, then you will see all classes of business grow more prosperous than it has been and we believe the time is not far off when onr farmers will again get out of debt and we will have a good and prosperous county. Unless the farmer is prosperous it is impossible for other branches of business to prosper as farmers constitute the bone and sinew .of the country. A. P. Miss Pauline Evans of Columbia S. C. is visiting her sister Mrs. Dr. W. D. Crocker. Mr. T. B. Boy kin one of our mer chants, is the happiest man in the place. It is a boy. Rev. B. B. Culbreth filled h is regular monthly appointment at the M. E. Church at n o'clock and at night. He preached two very interesting ser mons. Mr. Culbreth hues to the line as he sees it and feeds no one on taffy. On Friday night last the post office and the store of Mr. Jesse Lucas was entered. It seems that th rogues were searching for money, so they were disappointed and took very few goods, 'lhey also tried to enter the R. R. office but failed. Our railroad agent says they would have been dis appointed again, if they were lookine for money. On the same night the smoke-house of Isaac Ricks was enter ed and several hams taken. No clue to the rogues so far. Mr. James T, Capps a farmer near this place while taking his gun down from the rack on which it was resting to shoot a chicken on Sunday morning accidently dropped it. The gun fired and the load went through his leg just above the ankle and entered the clothes of his wife and child. Dr. W. D. Crock er was sent for but being engaged wir ed for Dr. Albert Anderson of W'ilson, who came at once. This is two acci dents near this place recently from i handling guns on Sunddy. Dr. Ander son attedned both cases. X. A. THE WILSON MARK FT. I 3 Mln shoeg at 150 Wilgon ghoe Corrected Weekly. COTTOX. Good middling. Strct Middling " Strict low " MKAT. AT. C.

Attention is called to another page on which is a description of the divis ion of the county into voting pre cincts, in accordance with the law passed by the last Legislature. It is an interesting article, and concerns every voter in the county. VIXEGAR, SUGAR. Granulated Brown JULACK CREEK LETTER. Mr. T. L. Brooks cine under Dr. H, R. is reading Hoover. medi- C. A. Woodard went to Washington City Thursday. He will be Congress man Woodard's private secretary. Much guano is being sold here per haps twice the quantity which was sold to date last year indicating an increased acreage in tobacco and cot ton. Thieves broke into John Bone's smoke house one night the past week. Mr. Bone got the drop on the would be robbers as he had a few days previous Jy moved his meat into his dwelling. There seems to be an organized band of thieves in this section. There is some talk of buying a blood hound by private .subscription for this section, but we fear this move will not mate rialize. We wish to reiterate what we said in our last week's letter: let the County Commissioners buy the dogs Suitable quarters could be provided at the jail or the Home for the aged and infirm and the annual cost for keeping them would be quite a small sum. The presence of blood hounds in the coun ty would largely diminish petty larcen- cy, protecting the property etc. X. X. X. GARDNER'S LETTER. Married. The following marriage licenses were issued during the past week : Arch Bynum and Lillie Woodard, col. Crumnier Bailey and May Battle, col. Haywood Harper and Geneva Aycoek.

As I am not in the habit of writing or corresponding for news papers you can't expect a very long letter from me, or an especially interesting one. The farmers of Gardners have been making great preparations on their farms for this year, but the snow fall last Monday put a stop to most all farm work. Great preparation is be ing made to advance the tobacco crop in vuantity over last year. I suppose the tobacco will be advanced 30 per cent over last year's acreage.
