we ever wore in our life. For I
never have seen before as much
work done in the way of plowing
than at present for tho timo of

broken, and cotton stalks run up,
besides a great many oats have;
boon in. The oats that wore sown
in January have been considerably
thinned out by the cold weather.
1 think however that there will be
enough left on the ground to make
a pretty fair yield.
In my last communication 1
stated that we would reduce tho
acreage in cotton one-half, but I
urn sorry to have to stale now,
such is not the case. I believe
there will be a full crop (mi in In
fact soin<> will plant more than
they did last year. That means 1
and 5cents cotton next full again.
As for myself I Hban't plant ovor
one-half of what I planted last

who is out of debt and indepen

raised plenty of bog and hominy,

raising cot t on when it was selling
for lo cents: now how can they
hope to get out of debt, raising it
at 4 cents ?

treachery, but not the treachery
of tho Spanish government. He
rather laughs at the idea of any

The readers of thin paper will
l?o pleasod to know that thero is at
least one dreaded disease that
science has been able to cure in all
its stages, and that is Catarrh.?
Hall's Catarrh Cure is the only
positive cure known to the medi
cal fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutione! disease requires a
constitutional treatment. Hairs
Catarrh Cure is taken internally,
acting direct ly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system,
thereby destroying the foundation
of 1 he disease and giving the pa
tient strength by building up the
constitution aud assisting uaturo
in doing its work. The proprie
tors have so much faith in its
curative powers, that they offer
One Hundred Dollars for any ease
that it fails to cure. Address

Editor Laurens Advertiser:
How was the city of Rome kept
clean? By every man sweeping
before his door! Don't, depend
upon the State to do everything
for you! You know our road
workers, (when they work) only
once or twice in the year, to re-'
pair the public highways. Don't
wait for them. White and Mack,
when you see a bad hole in the
road near your residence dump in
a few rocks and some dirt and fill
them up. How much easier for
your vehicles to pass over thorn,
Only a fow moments iost in the
work and what amount ol jolttiug I
yon havesavod; you have not only
benefit ted yoursolf, l>ni any man
that passea over the King's high
ways. A little work done at odd
times by any citizen would soon
make a wonderful improvement in
Quinine and other fe
ver medicines take from 5
to 10 ds'Y:: to cure fever.
