Wabhiwqtoi. May 15. The annual
reports of the LcuinaDa angar crop for
18S5-86 have jut been published and
re very icterestiDg. Some ot the
- crops are enormous. The millionaire
member of CongrtM from Louisiana,
Mr. Gay, made over 5,C00,0C0 pounds
of sugar and between 6000 and TOCO
ban els of molieser, on nine plmta
tiors, the entire crop being worth over
J575,00i. Uov. warmoutna crop is
worth 475.01)3. Tbe lareeet crop ever
frown is that of Oliver Bierno who
made icso nrgsneausoigupar, averag
ing 1250 pounds each, and 11,045 bar
rels of molfBsep, being the largest
Buzar crop ever grown on the Moith
American csnlinent by any individual
since sugar hai been cultivated. Mr.
Bierna will probably receive about
$3,250,000 for this crop. There are many
otters who have produced srnalltr
cropc. When it it remembered that
the present tariff on sugar enables the
Louisiana planter to get $17 per hogs
head more than he would receive
were there no tariff, why these gentle
men favor a protective tariff is self
evident Some of the best and most
' thrift planters in the State are frjm

Memphis, May 10. It waa the good
fortune of your correspondent to
spend Saturday last in the beautiful
lit le city of Collierville, Tenn., noted
for its churches, schools, society and
genuine hospitality of its wide-awake,
enterprising citizens, who lute much
pride in building up and improving
the town, which contains a population
of about 1200 souls. Colliervi le is
now justly regarded as one of the best
edui ationul centers of West Tennessee,
having two flue schools whu-h are in a
most nourishing condition. Belle
View College, of which Dr. C. W.
Johnson is president, is a very large
and commodious building, well
adapted to the purpose for which it
was built, having cost over J10,0CO
Miss Holden's Seminary is also a
well-arranged building, and contains
all modern improvements in thi wny
of heaters, dess, etc. Kach achocl is
pres ded over by a corps of competent
teachers that any commuui y might
well be proud of.The town is well repre

is p ssessed of three handsome church
edifices Methodist, Campbellite and
Baptist -and al'res"yterian church in
course of erection, which will be com
pleted in a few week, and which
will be quite an ad ition to the place
Collierville is also a place of consid
erable commercial importance, ship
ping annually about 10,000 bales of
cotton, all of which comes to the lil ti II"
City. Ihe merchants, who are gener
ally live business men, report trade
fair, considering the time of year,
most of whom carry largo nnd well
selected stocks of goods. Much larger
stocks are carried there than at most
tilaces of its a ze, which indicates that
her merchants keep pace with tao
times. The town contuns many beau
tiful residences which would do credit
to mnny towns double her dize. We
had the" pleasure of meeting a score or
more of prominent men who reside
there, among the number Justices "V.

The Sunday Mcbool Picnic.
In accordance with the announce
ment made by Rodoey in a Memphis
paper of recent da e, the picnic inau
gurated by the teachers and pupi s of
iviiss Holden's Seminary, the members
ot tne i-aobatti schools ct Collierville
also co-operating, came off to-day.
1 he early dawn of the day was en
veloped in lowering clouds, chilly
blasts came sweeping from the north.
and everything teemed to threaten
disappointment to the hopeful antici
pations that the children had fondly
cherished for weeks. At half past
nine, however, there was seen a spot
of beautiful blue in the western say,
which assured the desponding that be
hind the c'ouds the bright sun was
still shining. The winds soon ban
ished the clouds and brought hack the
sun, and hundreds of faces, brightened
a soon as the sky, were seen wending
tbcis way to the lovely spot selected
for the sporta and pleasurrs of the
day. One might well fancy that here
fairy queens held their courts and
nymphs and sprites rejoiced in their
" The principal feature of the day was
the c owning of a May Queen by the
pupils of Miss Hold.-n's Seminary.
They had chosen Miss Lee Wilson as
Queen of May, and the graceful anil
spirited manner in wkich she ruled
her court proved that they could not
have made a better selection. She
was beautifully dressed, her ringlets
floated to the breeze, and as sli9 moved
in procession under an everg'ecn can
opy, surrounded by her beautiful
nympha, she seemed a veritable fairy
queen. Her words, when she ad
dressed her subjects, camo bright and
sparkling from her lips, joy danced in
in her eyes and rays of happiness
flashed from her every glance. Miss
Helen Mangum presenteuao exquisite
crown of rae and fragrant flowers in
a beautiful address, and placed it with
her natural grace upon the fair brow
of her queen. Miss Maud Farley pre
sented the scepter with appropriate
words in fairy style.
Miss Lizzie Humphreys, in words as
sweet as the flowers, presented a lovely
bouquet. Master Virginius Leake
presented a ring in a charming man
ner whicn would win the favor of any
queen, while tbe nymphs aang in
chorus around the floral throne.
We have read of dreamlnnd. the
home of fairy spirits and the fabled
fountain of youth, but to-day while
we mingled in this group of happy,
innocent children and listened to
their fairy words, we foreot the cares
of life and imagined ourselves indeed
in fairyland quaffing the waters of the
fountain of you h. Innocence is in- j
deed that fountain.
A swing was soon suspended from a
stately oak. Mas er Baxter Fisher, as
cending a swinging limb with the
activity of a squirrel, carried the rope
over a large arm of the tree. Mr. G.
W. Cowles of Mobile, Ala., a student
of the seminary, was next Been climb
ing the rope in sailor-like style. In a
few momenta he had it secure, and
the swing kept up as regular motion
