PLAN A BOLIVAR
What lie Thinks of the Present
System-Farmer All d'ettinj
Readj to Plant.
River plattsrs who are ia the city
attendiog races all eiprees themselves
as very hopeful, and da not think the
ovetUsw will tave any aerions enect.
In many places planting hfs already
began, and almost everywhere the
groandnill be broken next week.
With few exceptions, they all ex
pressed themselves as doubtful in re
gard to the advisability of building
levees or of keeping np any longer
those already built A Bolivar County
man said : I have always been op
posed to levees and my father was be
fore me. He fonght them sa bitterly
ai he knew how, and bis neighbors
have now rams to the conclusion
that he was right and they were
wrong. My idea about tbe levees is,"
the gtntleman went on tc say, "that
they were forced npon us by tbe
war. We had to build them
t) oblige the darkies. Tho plant
ers can always get away
but tbe field hands cannot, and must
stay and worry through, living in
skiffs or on the roof of their cabins on
rations often leant and always irregu
lar, iney wanted tne levees, ana we
bad t build them. The consequence
is that the bed of the river hen been
raised several lest and that it con
tinues to raise every day. The de
posit, whith in case of a break, en-
rubes the tillable land, settles in trie
bottom of the itream. The de
posit is often toinetbing very
great. I remember a few years
ag9 when my farm had been
ovei flowed that I measured the
deposit which remained when the
water receded and found it to be only
fraction nnder two feet thick. Of
coniss, that was not fair teet, but tbe
deposit is always from five to si x inches
which lays upon the ground like so
much cream upon a crock of Jersey
milk. ' After such an ovei flaw cotton
grows luxuriously. I have seen it aa
tall as that," pointing to a beam ten
feet from the ground. "If we could al
ways get the water off in time to plant
we would be satisfied. After awhile the
farming lands adjacent to tbe stream
will all be above high water. When
a levee dees break there is some
danger, in case tbe water remains too
long, but when it leaves all the seed
pnt in the ground piomise a rich re
turn. A plantation can be raised
above oveiflow so that no annoyance
from high water need be feued. I
know a men in Bolivar county who
bought 300 acres tn the river
few veers auo for about 100, and
who now has a plantation worth not
less than 130.010. lie built two coun
ter levees, running at right angles
with the river, on the north and south
boundaries of bis land. Every year
tbe depoeit from the still water thus
confined was about foot, and the
place has built up so npidly that this
year he did not have more than ten
inches of water anywhere on bis
ground. Counter levees could be
built all along tbe river from Cairo to
New Orleans at a less expense than
lateral levees, and the present over
flowed lands would a 1 be above high
water in few year."

Aueusta (Ga.) Contlilulion : Col.
McClure of the Philadelphia Tinifi
has written a most vivid and epigram
matic article on men who live too
long, citing, as conspicuous examples,
Jellerson Davis and itohert loombs,
Probablv. in the gallant colonel's.
evea. these eminent men sliou'd have
passed from the stage long agT, but as
t lie Almighty, the Io'd of Life and
Death, happened to think otherwise,
it occurs to us that Co!, McClure
assumes too much in raising an issuo
with God Himself, who permitsinen to
remain on earth, even when they may
have apparently survived their use
fulness, for some wise purose. It
was tiling to some of our friends due
North that Gen. Toombs did not t.iko
the oath anil ask pardon. Mr. Davis
was equally disrespectful when he
accepted from on high length of days
not permitted to Oram, Lincoln,
Stanton and Chase, l'ray, colonel,
excuse this delinquency on the part
of Jell'erson Iavie, the more so as he
simply fulfilled what his Master ami
yours" ordained. Col. Midure niay
hot live long enough to jiresorilie the
terms of existence, in contradistinc

THE FAVORITES Mill
SERIES OF SURPRISES AT TUE
RACE TRAl k.
Lively Betting on All the Events
The Winners The Montgom
ery Stake To-Day.
An immerse crowd attended the
races yesterday, and thongh rain was
imminent during tbe en. ire evening,
the snort was over and the course de
serted before a diop fell. The threat
ening weather hurried up the pro
gramme and the last race was finished
qnite an hour before tha usual time,
hull there was plenty of leisure be
tween races for betting, every nun
who cared to bet at all having no diffi
culty in his 0T3 mind in picking the
winner. The results ef fonr of the five
events, however, were surprise, the
favoritse being downed one after the
other in the most disheartening way.
More money changed hands, perhaps,
than on any other day of the meeting.
The etaiters in nearly all of tho races
were evenly matched and odds offered
weie freely taken. The book-makers
had harvest, more than making np
the lo tea of Derby Day. Tbe disposi
tion to back the livers was not con
fined to the men, nut was general
among the ladies, who were out in
foics. The grand stand was gay with
bright cashmeres and the veranda of
the club-heme crowded. Bon-bone,
gloves and even bonnets were freely
wageted, and many a beau bought a
ticket in the French pools at his sweet
heor.'s request. They were about as
lucky aa anybody else, but the out
siders ai a rule went home with empty
THK K1RST BACK.
Six maidens started in the first race,
dash of three-fourths of a mile. Tbey
were Peek-a-Boo, Mary Ellis, Lancas
ter, Henrietta, John Alexander and
Alfred. Mary Kills was put down as
a sure winner, though Henrietta was
a slight favorite over the bay filly.
John Alexander, though known to be
a gool hcrss, had no backers, the
book-makers offering 2 to 1 he would
not win. Tbe odds against Peek-a-Bjo
were so crushing that no stock at all
was taken in him. The start was
made with very little trouble, and
though it did not look like a fair one
at first, they were all together in tbe
next hundred yards. Mary Kllis and
A'exander having a little the best of
it. In going to the torn tbey shifted
about like bite of glars in a kaleido
scope, and at the head of the atrttih
Alexander snowed np in iront, wun
Mary Ellis npon bis quarter and Lan

was very pret'y, and thess who had

There were eight starters In tho sec
ond race, tho noajtinysoso sweep
oinlieo a mila and a furlong. Thev
were Lucas. Phil Lewis, Revoke. V .
K Woodward, McBowling, Spunlding,
Ultimatum anil Princess. Pat Sheedy
was scratched and the favorite was
Ultimatum, though the knowing ones
put up a good deal 01 money on
Spaulding. Lucas, on account of
previous performance had a good
many believers and not a few were
tempted on account of Revoke's sue
cess earlier in the week to put up
somo money on him. Princess was
not looked upon as being in the race,
and when they were all at the poet the
old mare, who is still' and gore, spoiled
half a dozen good starts. She was
finally left and was beaten moro than
a quarter of a milo. As they passed
the etAttd McBowling had the lead,
Woodward lapping him and Lucas
upon his quarter. On the back
stretch Woodward began losing and
Lucas moved erndually to tho front,
taking tho h'll in line stylo ami lead
ing for a quarter of a milo. His legs
failed him as he neured the turn,
liowover, and be gave up the ghost,
B lowing McBowling to take first
place. Kevoko was not thought of
until the race down the stretch began
when he showed remarkable speed,
running seemingly without effort and
winning in a gallop, McBowling get
ting second place, with Woodward
The thi d event was a genuine sur
prise to the old sporlH. though one or
two took a good big Hlico of the w'n-
ner in thms at big odds 1 he starters
were Put Sheedy, Bob Swim, l.eroy,
Keenu and Iranian, th" latter a lug
favorite. Swim sold away down in
the pools, Sheedy and heroy dividing
the pot for 8 cond place. A good
many pools were sold, Leaman even
against tho li- ld. The race was a
mile and a quarter, and bottom and
weight were the two principal things
to be considered. The sUtrtwas fairly
made, Put Sheedy making a wonder
ful half-mile, loading the bunch by a
couple of lengths. He increased
rather than diminished his distance
on the back stretch, but the hill won
too much for him, and he loRtat every
jump on the run to the turn, Leroy
and Bob Swim passing him, and en
gated in a neck and neck race down
the stretch, Leain n having no show
to win. Keene moved up out of the
bunch, Leroy fell back aod Swim
kept up his lick beautifully. Leaman
recovered and pushed fcwini hurd,
overtaking him within a hundred
yards of the string. Swim inc cased
his efforts, and. urged to tho top of
his bent by his jockey, did i.nn
wonderful jumping whea nearing tho
string, winning by a scant length ;
Iranian second, Pat Sbeedy third.
Only three homes were entered and
st'rted in tho thi-d race, a mile dash,
They were Jim Nave, lilue Stone and
Grofla, Corrigan's little gray mare,
Blue Stone did not seem to be in good
shape, but was the favorite neverthe
less, Girofla being second choice. It
was one ot tlie prettie r, races oi um
dav ami for tbe first h II milo looked
like a walk-over for Oirolla, who got
the best of the start and kept up ber

well in hand on Nave's quarter, going
to the turn they ran in the same order
about a length apart, (jiirutla alow y

ger a matter of doubt as to who would
be the winner. IMuo Stone moved to
tho front like a rocket and t aino down
tho home stretch like a leather Hiring,
winning with hands down, (iirolla
was at last two lengths behind, beat
in. r .lim Nave for seoond place by n
full length. The result was not a sur
prise, as Corrigan generally runs to
win and his horses aro all good ones

was a run on Puritan stock when odds
of 3 to I were otlered, and the book
makers soon loaded np all they
wanted on him. Sloctim and A tire
linn were backed to some extent, but
more money was put up on lUiccplia
lous than on any of the others. Puri
