"Rural Scout Finds Crops Are Suffering From Cool Nights and Need of Rain...Tuesday morning I finished my work in Muscogee, crossed the Upatoie creek at Cook & Eelbeck's mill into Chattahoochee county. While at the mill I stopped into the store of Mehaffey & Martin, and had a pleasant conversation with Mr. MEHAFFEY. He stated, during the course of our talk, that labor was scarce, and the farmers were behind with their crops. I journeyed to Mr. H. F. GALLOPS, who was bury in the store. Being informed that Iw as the Rural Scout he readily renewed with me. Here I led my horse, and during the time I chatted with Mr. GALLOPS. // He stated if the Enquirer should fail to come at anytime he would greatly miss it, and 'Would count that day lost, Whose low descending Sun Should fail to bring The Enquirer-Sun.' // After dinner I drove on to my friend's Mr. E. E. BENTLEY..." [Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun newspaper, 21 NAY 1917, p. 4.]
