J HTnV 1IVH nnrmn mtrl mi tlOtH J last I contributed anything to your columns. Your ivell-known modesty and mine as well, would forbid mak- incr mention the various words of praise your efforts have elicited. The people of this favored section and adjacent territory have reached a new era of development. Judging from indications it will soon rush forward to the very van of civiliza tion and advancement. Brasstown is turning out a large number of teichers, doctors and preachers, most of whom possess the highest order of talent. As legisla tors, some of her sons have sat with the Solons of North Carolina with out discredit to any one. In fact, they have reflected honor on the State. Our farmers, m point of intelli gence, will compare favorably with any in the State. They are begin ning to recognize the fact that a much smaller boundary of laud en riched and well cultivated will pro duce more than a much larger boun- darv of poor land half cultivated. This is the secret of and the key to successful farming. They are also beginning' to appreciate .their inde pendence, and recognize the fact that theva.ro tlicjlnrds And not the i minions of any class.

Let this force be controled by brain power, and success is almost inevitable. The tobacco business is attracting considerable interest, and will soon assume immense proportions in this section. In this immediate vicinity there :has been raised this vear 35 barns of tobacco. From all indica tions, next year there will be ten times that amount, which will yield about 100,000 pounds of tobacco. Placing the modest estimate of 10 cents on the pound, it will yield the nice little sum of $10,000. All this in a radius of five miles, and no "gasing." Of course this, like all othercrops, is subject to accidents, but these are modest figures: 'Tis the intention pot to let this crop in terfere with other crops, as it will come in before and after the other crops are made. This is one of the best farming sections in the State, if men will go to farming right; Health! Why to he sick here is something strange, and scarcely ever a death, except old persons. We have marble enough to sup ply a large demand, and other min erals in prospect. We have two schools conducted under the anspieces of Miss Blanche Moore-an Mrs & JaVtin4 Sjbon we hope to see the Spires of twopeauti ful churches pointing the inhabitants to the Giver of gifts. ' To-day I attended an old-fashioned corn husking at Sir Robert Harper's. There were men and maids and ma trons there. 'Squire Moore, who is somewhat of a poetical turn, laid aeide his magisterial robe, and doubt less forgetting but that he was a boy, sung some old Scotch and Irish melodies, and other ditties, for the "bonnie lassies." If we had had music, I expect we would have seen him "change corners and swing part- ners" with some of them. I guess when his wife heard of k, a few "curtain lectures" will follow, and 'Squire Daniel will assume his judic ial robes. Our valJies, hills and mountains have been exquisitely beautiful for sometime, but are fading. .Nature's great artist has dressed them off in all imaginable colors, apparently in bridal attire. You,wbo have gone over the world to see sights, come to Western North Carolina and you can see them. Come and I will show you mountains eternal mountains pyramids grander than those of the valley of the Nile, wlose uncovered head have held sweet converse with the stars, 'around whom the wild lightnings have theil home and the untamed winds tluir eyrie, and where tme thnnderft e'cho back to their cavierns! Come, iu , 1 I - J and I will show you pvramida clues who have gazed tn the face eft the sun, perhaps, since the morning stars sang together and the birds first sang in Eden's sunny bowers ! Subscriber. 1TEM S FROM HAXOTXGDOG. On Sunday, Oct. 25th, there was a double wedding at this place, the con tracting parties being Ben Dockery and Miss Sarah J. Jenkins, Clemy Davis and Miss Sarah Nickelson, Kquire R. II. Lovinggood, officiating. The ceremony occarred at Mrs. Sarah Nickelson's house, and was witnessed by a large crowd of friends and relatives. Mr. and Mrs. Ben Dockery had a" reception Sun day afternoon at Mr. Eli Palmer's residence. A delightful meal was served to the guests, who vied with each other in wishing the bride and groom a - long and prosperous life. Mr. and Mrs. Clemy Davis' recep tion occurred on Monday -at Rev. W. H. Davis' residence. The table was loaded with good things, and the large crowd present were lavish in their wishes that time would deal gently with them and that they would finally, hand in hand, safely enter the pearly gates.

It hasn't rained iu this part of the State to amount to anything in about three months. Water is scarce, and stoek will suf fer if it doesn t fain soon. Corn is worth 50 cents per bushel. The crop was cut short by a six week's drouth in June and July. Cotton picking is progressing rap idly. If it remains clear another week most of the ci op will be gath ered. What do yon think about a man picking 540 pounds of cotton in one day? Mr. Buck Griffin, of Hill county, picked that amount and quit work before night. I am well pleased with the "Lone Star State," but my mind often runs back to the place of my birth. I was surprised the other day by the arrival of two of . North Caro lina's promising young men, John and William Rogers. They have come to try their fortune among the kind and hospitable people of Texas. Crops will soon be gathered, and then the public schools will begin. They usually open about the first of November and lasts all winter and epring. Jxo. W. Henry. DOTS FROM CLAY. Miss Carrie Penland, after spend ing a few weeks among friends in Faanklin, has returned home. J. VY. . Harrison, of Greenville, Tenn., and Miss Blanche Wiggins, ot Graham county, entered school here last week. ' " '' Cherry & Scroggs are making some improvements on their store build ing, and R. M. Hall has greatly im proved his property near town. W. H. Price, one of Hayesville's promising young men, died in Bry son City of fever on October 21st. George Davis, an excellent young man, died on Shooting Creek, Oct. 26th, after a long seige of consump tion. There was a union Sunday school picnic at Hayesviile, October 24th The Hayesviile Methodist and Bap tist and the Downing Creek Sunday schools united in one grand picnic. There were quite a number of essays and recitations, interspersed with music, which the large assembly greatly enjoyed. An excellent ad dress was delivered by Rev. J. W. Lawing, followed by B. M. Martin, who is truly a good orator and never fails to attract attention when he takes the floor. AIL who were pres- lent seemed to greatly enjoy the oc casion. Z. H. C. SHOOTING AFFRAY IN GRAHAM. , On the 27th ult., a serious acci dent, and one that may jrpve fatal, occurred at a logging camp on the Tennessee river, this county, in which a young man by the name of Quiet, of Calhoun, Tenn .was sht by-Alex. Jens,-! thiJ county. It seems, from what ; we can learn of the particulars, that Jenkins had been book-keeper for Mr. Sherman, the man who had charge of the log ging contract, and in settling with Sherman claimed $3 more than Shei man thought was right. The differ ence soon brought on hot words, and finally Sherman struck Jenkins with his fist, whereupon Jenkins drew his pistol and fired at Sherman, the ball glancing his ear and striking Quiet in the breast, ranging toward the left shoulder. Jenkins is still at large. Whisky had a great deal to wun tne row. r. M. Mrs. W. B. Nelson writes us that a meeting conducted by Revs. Corn and Hocksct at Shoal Creek will be long remembered by tne people. It has reunited the church and awaken ed a warmer and purer love in our hearts, and we shall ever feel grate ful to these faithful servants of the Lord foV the beautiful and instruc tive sermons they have given " nsl May they continue zealous in His service to the: end of Iifereceiying as their reward a home .forevermore in His Kingdom.
