Hekrakd3, Miss , April S. In this
age cf bustle and hurry to get rich, it
would seem at first eight a very unim
portant rant er what one man is doing.
Knowing tbe deep interest you take in
everything relating to arming and
farmers, I am satiefied you will agree
with me, thtt tbe occupation in which
he is eagaged tad the object be deems
to accomplish ar i woithy of eome con
sideration. About half a mile f oath
of Hernando is the ttock farm of Mr.
W. A. Crosettt, containing 3'6 acres,
which I shall name "Crying Hills," a
they appear to ate to be crying loudly
as plain a they tan cry, fiistior food
and care, t ken for work. He has built
a substantial and commodious barn,
with sta l-room for forty-eight bead of
. stock, with hayloft above and patent
horse hoisting fork. His present stock
consists of seven brood mrres, seven
co he, two mules, seven milk cows, ten
yearling and dry cows, Lur ca!vee, in
cluding two Jersey cows with it'ves,
one registered Jersey bull, sixty-four
sheep, forty lambs, seventeen goats
ana eleven ktdp, ail of wnicn .are
boneed at night and in bad weather,
and the munnre carefully saved.
He has started out with a
delertrjini t on to improve the land.
He has about tigLteen acres pretty
well eel in clover, and has jut finished
seeding about the tame number.which
is now under wheat and rye. He has
some three or four tjfca of land planter,
-which he intends to distribute ever
the clover already st. He has hauled
and spieid ever) thing In tba shape of
manure he could, scrape and take op.
I may here -say he was much disap
pointed regarding a manare-spreading
machine in which he bought a half
inteiett; from some cause or other it
would not work. I wo lid suggest to
tbe builders' farming implement?,
when the machJoe or tool ie pnt to
gether in the shop and ready to work,
mark tbe parts distinctly, so that
when it is taken cpart for shipment it
can readily be pnt together, a the or
dinary farmer is n a machinist. He
has also seeded down eight or ten
acres of hill woods lot in herds gram
and orchard grass, end says when kia
land will make a bale ot ct tton to the
acre then he may ri some. He
his jtiet added ti his already laiee
tock of Intor-pavirg tools a Scotch
8rrop, with the improvement cf
orking the ttb BtiaJgLt, or ft an
ngle. I thick it ii a tool which no
aruoeronght tobe without. (Pardon
the prt fertile ; I am f om tbe bills of
Scotland). Now, icatlemen, I dr not
mean to feav that there are very maPy
farmers iki it able to fo low thjs
example and abandon the cultivation'
t cotton entirely, but there are quite
a nnmhf-r ol lard-owneis who Lave
other source of income; who, as far
ai pra-tioable, ought to a andon the
cultivation of t:on on all landa tr-at
will not ordinarily produce ba.f a bile
to the acre. The trcuMe is not in
raising too many bales cf cctton, but
in ihe cultivation, or la'berin the
desttuct on, cf 101 many acres to laise
the b e. I believe the Memptiis
creamery is now anastund thing, and
I bop will be asucctsi. It nay be
some inducement to somecotlon farm
er of the neighborhood ti keep two
or three good milk cow, that might
put bim in tbe notion t) give a little
attention to pat tore for them; te
might, lake a no ion to save some hay
for winter feed, build some kind i f
house or shed for hie cows to stay ia
winter, clean it out once in a while,
and care'u ly save the cleanings.
Right here he makes a start toward
the improvement ( t his land. If it
be ever so saull he has got a
ttart on the right road, and if be
will, or mutt iahe cotton on poor land,
lei him sow a few bnshels of eas
where they will do the nr st good, and
when matured father all he ran, bnt
gave aime hay ai well. Thn when
he ltya by his cotton let him sow
pre'ty thica in the middle of the rows
and cover them by whatever means he
ttiinks best. When they attain their
rankett growth, which will be some
time af er the poor cotton has been
pi.'ked, tike a turning plow and fasten
a blot k or chain, or anything that will
diag them down, in front of the p ow
and cover them with two fu'rows.
After he has done to twice, tithe ssmo
Eiece cf cotton be will find out for
ices elf how well it pays. n. l. a.

Flfly-lxlb Annaal t'onference at
Provo, Utah, April 5. Some 8000
Mormons from all parts of the United
Statt'S are here participating in the
fifty-sixth annual conference of the
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints. The reunion began this morn
ing and will last soveral days. Owing
to the prosecutions for unlawful co
habitation no member of the present
presidency is here. It was announced,
however, that a communication will
be received from members of that or
der before the meetings close. This
communication will, it is predicted,
criticise adverse legislation and extol
the action of the church in fighting
anti-polygamous legislation. The gath
ering is a most remarkable one in
many respects. It is composed of
people from all parts of the world.

Como. Miss.. April 5. It is quite in
crder to depict this place in ioy col
ore, a!tt ough, being a probil ition
town, it wiiuld be improper to "paint
it red." It is ce ttiLly the mott at
tractive of the sisterhood of towns on
the Mississippi and Tennessee rail
road, and is as progressive and busi-ntss-likeas
it is prttty. Como re
ceived me with of ea arms, for tbe
Appeal's fake, treated me, indeed,
with as much courtesy as if I had been
a mikado traveling fur my health in
iteid of an evtry day "cbiel takin'
notes." Like begets like, says the ad
age, and if ever I writs anything un
kind cf Como may tbe manuscript be
charged up to me "at regular advertis
ing rates." '
Two embryo towns, one called
Slsdgeville and the other Como, were
combined to form this place wben the
Missistippi and Tennetsee road bad
reached midway between them. A
learned blacksmith gave tbe name,
Como, but why baa never been di
vu'ged, L r tbeie is no lake bigger
than a horse pond within a week's
journey. S.edgev'lle would have
men more sppropii-de, though not so
euphonious, for the late N. K. Sledge
and tae present firm of Sledge Bros,
really made the town.

itself in this fivnred soot.
While Como bai had but few start
ling evettt in her history she has bad
a steady business giowth. Her most
prominent merchant, Mr. N. R.
Sledge, built up a very large and suc
cessful business, which baa since hia
death been continued by bis sons, the
Sledge Bios, of Como, also of Mastodon
and Spring Bluff, and of Sledge &
N or fleet of Memphis. They have a
mammoth store, where one can pur
chase anything from a package of pens
to a Bte.m engine, or from a can of sar
dines to a 5t)0-2cre plantation. The

Ycs'erday I had the plnrsure of in
terviewing Dr. Rivers, who is a go.net
of Mr Oliver Sledge. Tbe do. tor, who
is ttJiffering from the effects of a severe

old. He is well known to many ef
year most prominent citixeos. He
was renowned ia tbe good old dsvs,
not only for his medical skill, but for
a fund of anecdote which never failed.
A crowd of gentlemen on a street cor-
rer or in tbe refund of a botel, all
lanphine. wonld be a euro indication
that Dr. Rivers was in their midst.
And ha bad the rare skill of pleasing
the ftir sex as well. Even to-day, with
the sand" oi life fatt running out, be is
one I re's that he ia an octogenarian,
for bis wit aii wisdom is as vigorous
as it was fif y va' aio. He went t)
Memphis in W-'5. "No, it wasn't,

could lave boUfch. any part of it for

a Second Chickasaw R offd, and the
