The fase of Joe Beard, charged with the killing of his Uncle Pink Beard, on Lick Creek, near White Oak, a year co last August, in this county, is on trial here in the crminal court. Yes terday was devoted to getting a Jury. When court opened today eleven ve niremen had been accepted. A large number of witnesses have been um fltoned, and the case promises .o be a stubbornly contested one and will watche Vi.''h considerable inter- educational way. Attorney J. H. Dinning, of Colum bit, and Attorney P. S. Chandle.'. ot Mt. Pleasant, were present as orators of the day, and each made a fine talk, and while encouraging and commend ing the motives that prompted the gathering they gave out some :aost wholesome advice and sound sugges tions with regard to schools and school work, and the interest that is now prevalent and spreading in Mau ry county. Dinner was served on the grounds, having been prepared by the good people of the surrounding oommuntty, and a most generous feast it was. The social intercourse, the discus sion of school matters, Che splendid speeches of Messrs. Dinning and Chandler, and other talks, the excel lent dinner and the impetus of good fellowship and education, all tended fto make a most pronounced success. T. Y.

It will bo remembered by those who read the former article in re gard to this work that it is not an ex perimental station, but a demonstra tion of the work done by the experi ment stations. The actual work will be done, a demonstration of the theo ries advanced in experimental work, and he is only anxious to get the co operation of the farmers, and on this co-operation depends largely the ex tent of the work as well as length of time the bureau will continue him in this section. bo f ! fi T AttonicJ General John L.

Within a short time the publication of the Cadet, the periodical issued b'y the Columbia Military Academy, will be renewed. The staff has been elected and the members are busy soliciting the advertisements and get ting up thp matter for the first issue. A contract has been made with The Herald for the publication of the monthly. Ever since the establish ment of the Cadet it has been issued from the office of The Herald. The following capable staff has been chosen: John Duncan, editor in chief. Robert Garner, business manager. Leo Wiggy, associate. j Horace White, exchange editor. Clarence Fry, assistant business manager. J. B. Sharp, staff artist. Hedgecock, staff artist. The editor of atletics is yet to be chosen. among the cattle of Maury countv irfe parable damage would be done. , It is only through the importation of western horses from sections w cere the Texas tick is known that Mr. Akin can account for the presence of ticks among the cattle in the secMons through which he haB been. Those horses were turned on pastures with the cattle aid the result has been that Mr. Akin found several head of the cattle on the farms mentioned with ticks on them. He will visit every farm where there is reason to believe that any stock on it has been exposed to the infection. The Texas fever has proven a great source of luss to sections where it has existed. In counties of Tenenssee and the States South where a quarantine has been enforced by the federal gov ernment the price of cattle has been from twenty-five to fifty per cent less than it has been above the line. SECOND CROP OF LARGE GRAPES George Williams, colored, of North High street, brought to The Herald office today a good sized bunch of well leveloped second crop of grapes. The vine grew well at the appointed sea son and again has good, sweet fruit on It. have come to the Columbia u.iaiti but they am x. -cu., trade to ba brisk in them in a fw duyt. The crop in spite of the drouth dur ing Peptemoer. is repoi ted to be a good one aid the yeild was estimated today by one of the best Judges and most experienced buyers in the coun ty, at twenty-live barrels to the acre, This will be more thrn twice the av erage yield on the first crop. How ever, the profits win net necessarily be twice as great for the price is only about half what it was for the first crop. Dealers are offeiing only SI. 75 per barrel and may farmers aie hesitat ing about selling ,at that price. They are inclined to hold for $2 per bar rel. This appears to be the decision of a large number of farmers In th Glendale and Culleoka , sections, where a large portion of the crop of the county is grown. At twenty-five barrels to the acre, even at the low price of $1.75 per bar rel, the f'.eld will be nearly forty five dollars an acre, considered a pret ty good return for any crop. Tber between 2,000 and 3,000 acres in po tatoes in the county, probably the lat ter figure would be a conservative es timate and t. fifty dollars an acre, thm value ot the crop of the county Tould approximate $150,000.
