The lawn social beid last Friday eveniug was not a financial success. About $3 net. There was a hop at Eaton's Mills which kept quite a nuniber away. Mra. Dan Rouuds is very ill at present writing. Our expected doctor is at the Kiniball house. His name is Root, iutead of Foote,as reported last week. Wednesday last Mr. Henry W. Hammond and wife, Mjr. Elgin Darling aud wife visited the great crushing milis at or near Scofleld. lts fumes forewarn people of the btd.bottoniless pit. Sulphur is taken out of the quarry amid the stone , by three half pounds and pounds, so by lighting a match and touching to it, it gives us the blue blazes. We very much thank the one who found our last report to the Argus. It was on its way to the postofflce when it took its flight. Wheu we arrived at the office there was no letter. But it was found and kindly put in its proper place. Mr. and Mis. Harvey S. Day, Mr. Ira Bissell and wife were guests of Mr. and Mrs. George Hammond last Sunday. The colored people of Augusta hold a camp meeting east of Whittaker, one half mile. Meeting is to begin August 14 and lasts ten days. Apples are very scarce in these parts. A great mauy trees have not more than two or three apples on and more haven't any. Corn and late potaotes are in a very flourishing coudition. There are very few beans in this vieinity. Those that plantea have but a very few, with sonie exceptions ; once in a while you flnd a good field. The beans that were planted before the drouth have come up nicely since the recent rains, aud it's the same with. sowed corn. Farmers around this locality who have had to feed their stock, are rejoicing that horses, cows and sheep, are able to get their own living. How beau;iful to see our fields Mrith new life, not dead and brown, but in its emerald robe.
