• Farmers are sowing more grass seed than I have ever seen and talking black cattle, grass, and hogs. This means a better country and better times. Peaches are killed in this section. A few apples are left. Wheat, rye, and oats bid fair for a prolific crop.

• A fine Sunday school is held at Smith Chapel. Amos Carmack is superintendent. Good singing and preaching Sunday at 2 p.m.
