A GOOD FARMER. Mr. J.S. Grooms, one of Charlton’s best farmers, was in town a few days ago and told us that from three acres of land he has raised 1,000 bushels of sweet potatoes. They are worth fifty cents a bushel, making his potato crop alone worth $500.00, besides his corn, sugar cane and other products which he has raised.

MOVED. J.W. Swearingen moved from his farm to his home on Court House Street last week.

CANE GRINDINGS. Many of the people of Folkston are visiting the cane grindings in the county. Among those were Mrs. J.P. Robinson, Mrs. C.M. Raybon, Miss Florence Wainright and Miss Mamie Robinson.

NO MONEY FOR TEACHERS. It seems that the pensioners and school teachers will not receive any more pay till about Christmas. The state is scarce of money. We are now feeling the effects of two years of reform policies.
