White it is possible that we may
have some freezes again this spring,
it would not be wise to defer planting'
corn any longer. Corn ought to be
planted either early enough to ma

are likely to overtake the crop, or else
late enough to catch the August rains
when about ready to ear. March and
May are the two months for planting.
One can still more probably escape the
midsummer drouth by planting an
early variety of corn as noon as the
weather will permit. Taking it all in

Mr. J. J. Bruner, the veteran editor of

curred at his residence in that city last
Sunday. He had been engaged in edi

doubtless the oldest editor in the State
in contin uous service. Fifty-one ears
ago he established the Watchman, in
the editorship of which he was true to
his convictions, true to his people,
honest, upright, and without pretence.
He sought rather to do his duty in a
quiet, unobtrusive way than to win
notoriety. He did his duty did it
