Farmers are busy when the weather will per mit them to work Wheat is showing up better by far than was expected some time since The prospects for a peach crop were never better here at this season or time of year but alas one cold night can settle the hash with the whole of them- Judging from the amount of fertilizer that is being brought to this part for corn the outlay in money this spring will exceed the income in the fall in corn To put commercial fertilize on very poor land is a needless waste of money and time If we expect good re turns and pay for the outlay we must fertilize land with some soil end my experience is the more soil the helter it will pay us Ve imjst deversifycrops more in Rock astle ifwe expect to live easily let us learn that corn is not kingbut good in his place Try

from the race some time ago to ac cept the editorship of the Danville News yet even though there had been other candidates in the field it seems to us hat Mr Farris should have still been the man and no doubt would have been Daring his last term he proved him self equal to his task and his Dein- ocratic friends fully appreciated his splendid work The call made by the citizens o Richmond on Mr Clarence Woods asking him to accept the mayoralty is indeed a high compliment Wit much reluctance he yields al though much preferring to devote his entire time to journalism rath er than to get mixed
