EXIT Be) AH PICKET? OH THE
Yesterthv'a Avalanche contained the
-valedictory of H. M. Djak, who re
tiree to ssaume the du lea of the tfflco
to which he hs been appointed by
Judge Jackson. Toi manly to cry,
Djak attempts to langh himself oat of -the
profession he hai to long adorned,
but he rannot sopprojs the emotions
of his warm and generou heart, and
there is a strngg'e for the mastery be
tween bis grim humor and bia tears.
The ArraAL profoundly, sincerely, re
grets the loss of Mr. Djak to Memphis
journal s. We have found him an
able, genial and courteous contem
porary, lie id intellectually pugna
cious and combative, a bora polemic.
Eometlxnea he seemed to entrench
himself in singular positions merely
to provoke discussion, which made
him appiar more meteorio than plan
etary. But hisability and bis original,
quaint style of writing made him a
formidable foe. His editorials are terse
and to the point; no man can write
more strongly or effectively. In the
language of Macauley, he has a won
derful talent "for packing thought
close and rendering it portable." He
combines readiness with information,
gravity with humor, and pleasantry
and stern decorum with brilliancy
and wit. His versatility is wondeifal,
and he writes so thoroughly, so grace
fully and well that be seems pecu
liarly adapted for every subject which
he discusses. Boolally U. M. Doak
developed every trait which refiaei
the heart, brightens the Intellect, ele
vates the character and true manhood.
He is to endowed by nature, so
adorned by e't,so affluent In all noble
traits, so davold of the greed of pelf
which disgraces the times, that he la
high above those little vermiculate
alms of life that wriggle over the
soul, aisBguriog and minimising
it. Ia leaving for his Nash
ville home Mr. Doak will carry
with him the good wishes of the
Memphis people, and certainly those
of the Apmal, which will rejoice in
his prosperity and happiness. A. B.
Pickett succeeds Mr. Dusk as chief
editor of the Avalanche. Having been
on the Aitial editorial etaff for many
y.rs we know his caliber, and pre
dict for him a brilliant and successful
editorial career, lie is a young man
of splendid abilities, and has left the
impress of his genius npon the pages
of the ArriAL. His pro eminent en
dowments will speadily pUce him la
the front rauk of the journalists of
the Soath. There is nothing in the
whole range of newspaper work
that Mr. Pickett cannot do well,
and what is of equal import
ance, with unhesitating prompt
ness, for he is always ready to do any
amount of labor that the exigency re
quires. Hs enters upon his duties as
editor of the Avalanche well equipped
with all the aptitudes for journalism,
and now that he has found scope for
his talents, or rather conquered a
place for their ezerclss, the ArriL,
which ia familiar with his varied tal
ents, predict that he will win a name
and achieve a success with which the
most ambitious might bs satisfied.
THE DELTA WALLET CON Villi.
On Monday next, December 6th, the
Delta Valley Convention will meet at
Ureenville, Miss., but the inviia'.ion is
not confined to the Delta, and per
sons interested in the welfare of
the Misi-ianlppi Valley everywhere are
invited to bs present. In the present
state of things there is much that re
quires the attention of such a conven
tion. Congrtss will soon be in ses
sion, and in view of the enmity that
exietfl in the Esst against Mississippi
river improvement, and In view of
the want of just liberality of Congress
in aid of the improvement, and in
in view of the necessity that ex'sts for
strengthening the hands of the River
Commission, such a convention may
be regarded as imperative, and every
btate witbin the Mississippi Valley
should bold a similar convention.
-fsr . ! . .
ins ureeoviue ztavi informs as
that sufficient replies have been
received to show that the con
ventiou will be well attended.
It - also publishes a commu
nication from Gen. S. D. Lee, presi
dent of the Mississippi Bute College,
in which he expresses the opinion
that the tmeting of an influential con
vention "can do a vast deal of good."
Will all this arouse those concerned to
action, or ni.l they tit at home and
give no s'ttn when Congress neglects
due p ovislm for river improvement,
and while tha Truat Company is
threat bio the price of their cotton
eoed. New Orleans, In the face of till
ioltiei? auJ nib.irraasmen'g, is in
dustries, riy grappling with the evils
that threaten Its trade, cannot others
energetically follow their exempleT"
To sit in lisfcts apathy, allowing evils
ts accumulate and precious opportu
nities to pass away, is one of our car
dinal sins. Events have stirred cs np
in many thing;, and tluy must s'sa
move us to action in se f dtfenr, and
to vignons fgj'eation where neces
sary. A wide awake correspondent of
the Greenville Time writes: "We
are tho mo:t dtbt-ridden, depressed
and, oompletsly hacked people
that ever lived, considered fair gima
for every combination of capital that
may see fit to come to de?poil us.
Why iatbisT Is it because we lack
the intelligence to protect ourselves?"
This vigorous writer says those whose
influence is adverse to as combine,
and we cannot cope with a united
world single handed. We must stand
actively by one another in the South,
and the Greenville Convention is a
good occasion to show that we intend
to do bo, and let ut do it I .
IIAVK WE A COTTOH PICKLRT
Two years ago our cotton people
were gratified on being informed that,
at length, a genuine cotton picker had
been invented. The gennine stroke
of genius by which Mr. Mason bad in
sured the selection of the fiber and the
rejection of the leaf, revived many
drooping hopes. That sesBon pawed
by, however, without the pickers be
ing on the market, and now another
season is nearly over and still no Ma
son's pickers are on sale. This Is not
encouraging to those who had begun
to hope. We have sonfe news on the
sobjact, however, in this month's
Vicksburg rianleri Journal, which
contains a report from a committee
who have witnessed a trial of the new
plsker. That repoit is not altogether
an encouraging one. The committee
say they "were most agreeably
surprised and gratified to witness in
operation a machine approaching to
douJy the italics are the committee's
to a practical, succesaful cotton
harvester." Also, from assurance
of Improvements yet to be
made, "your commits are con
strained confidently to hope and be
lieve that the cotton harvester will be
a practical success." This meant', of
coarse, that, as the committee under
stand It, the picker is not a practical
access, though tending that way. Mr.
Mason's skill and genius and per
everanoe merit success, but it is
evidently not yet attained. This will
disappoint many, and very many will
be oond iaedin their opinion that a
cotton pickliig machine is an Impos
sibility. rOBTVBIC TELLI1ICI.
Uar oprtg&tly New York corre
spondent, "Clara Belle," in her letter
we published on Sunday, ahows that
the old gyty style of fortune telling
is quite' In vogae ia Rew York today.
A smooth, planalble and ingenious
charlatan examines the palm of the
hand, traces its broken and erratic
lines and thn pours out the lav
portent pirtioalara imagination has
pictured out during the process. Peo
ple often have their fortune told "for
fun" Is It so here? That question is
answered when it is stated that, for
this reading of tha palm, the price
demanded and paid is ten dollars.
Many will think it singular that in
this niaUtriallBtio age, when unbelief
is so common, such a snperatltlon as
fortune telling should be sought and
believed ia by persons able to give
tea dollars for what the fortune teller
poors out with eloquent volubility.
Strange aa it may appear, an
aga of nobslief is always an
age of supsrstillon. Wiaards, as
trologere, tnesmerlaers, mind read
ers, mediums and humbugs gen
erally always abound where unbelief
prevails. When Rome cast off her be
lief in Deity, true and false, superstl
tlon reigned to each a degree that the
horrible Egyptian rites, before reject
ed, became the fachlon the readers
of Th Lait Dayt of Pompeii will re
member the fact. When Voltaire and
D'Alembert were the fashionable an
thorities in religious matters before
the French revolution, and the rejec
tion of L Etrt Supreme occurred during
It, saperetition ran a free coarse, be
ginning with the fashionable circles
and descending to let tricoteuiet, who
plied their needles at the guillotine,
Today it is the same, and it unbelief
suowia continue to spread, so sura
will its parasite and mocker, sapersti-
tlon, cling to its steps and haunt its
victims. Strange to many each a fact
may appsar, bat man has a dual nat
ure; deny the spiritual portion Iti
necessary food, and it will feed on
poison.' I a all ages the tongue
of history his proclaimed that
superstition and unbeliof, ilka
twins, are born together. The
ftiwin. may escape, perhaps, the
eanatflr, and especially the half know
ing and half ignorant, will be super
stitions to a certainty. Does ths
reader doubt It T Let him glance with
in the drawing rooms of New York,
and see ihe fashionable mprilt forte

llolmts stated teat tne wnoie aunr

he stid came into West Carroll with
his brother, Julius, just before the

dlers from Poland. Tbey would make
their ht-adqrjnrteis at the Davis plan
tation, and eventually began to feel
much at home. Davis died jast be
fore tbe close of the war, and Julius
married Mrs. Davis, from whom he
was divorced a few years afterward. A
daughter of Mrs. Davis married 8imon,
the hero of the present ca-e. The
two brothers nt once absorbed the in
terest of the D vis plantation and es
tablUhtd their country stoie near Con
cordia. Then they began by eystem
atio plans securing conftsied judg
ments from parties who addressed
themselves to them for advancements
on crops In lieu of chattel mortgages,
not recognised in Louisiana. By these
means they secured a powerful poli
tical influence by having those
parties more or less obligated to them.
Tbe scenes in West Carroll were bat
tbe result oi the upriciog of the peo
ple against the wrongs nnder which
they Lave suliVed for the past twenty
years. There could be no legal reme
dy for those poor people, as the Wil
kowski's could pack juries and other
branches of the local judiciary to
their satisfaction. Ia regard to
Maj. McK.ee, the agent and
book keeper, who was killed, it was
stated he was a creature ot Wilkowski,
having been appointed Justice of tbe
Peace to, aid them in their plans.
Mr. Holmes siys that the dispatches
in the New Orleans papers about the
people being outlaws and desperadoes,
and about the mob lying ia wait for
$2000 alleged to be expected by Wil
kowekl, is all bosh and nonsense.
A SUCCESSFUL CREAMERY
At the Hleeleslppl AcrlealtarI Col
atoeard ot ttte Paat Tear
The following letter, addrersed to
the Baltimore Afanuocturers Kecora,
should be read with Interest by all
butter makers and dealers:

November 16, lbttd. J
We have bad a creamery In opera
tion at this place since May 16, 1885
the nrat creamery to receive mux
from pitrocs in the State. Several
men, owners of Jersey herds, were
making and shipping butter at the
time we started. Our daily production
ot but'er has varied from 150 to 200
pounds. We have generally secured lit
tle be t'erpricdfltlmn were paid for the
best Western creamerv butter. We
have received during fall, winter and
spring months an average net price at
thefacto-y of 30 cents per pound;
dnring tbe rest of the year, 25 cents.
During last July our markets were
fl ioded with butter, and for three
weeks we sold part of the make at 20
cents. We have been
BUirriKO CBBAM TO HIW GELS Alt 8,
receiving net from 80 cents to $1 5
per gallon, estimating twelve gallons
to 100 pound t. We are receiving milk
twice a day during summer; once only
In winter. Most diatant patron is
three miles and a half away. Milk is
made bv native and Jersey srade
cows, about equal in number. Oar
lowest yield oi Dctter per 1UO
pounds milk occurs about July
1st, ruoning down twenty-five
pounds oi milk to make one ot
butter. From November to March
we get one pound batter from an
ewncann f aanon loan T rtn d tnttilr
V Ul aptu Ul KTO V V UIVDU JJUUAAUjB SAJAlSk, a
December, of last year, one pound of
butter to fifteen pounds milk. We
use Ice from Jane until 1st November
for cooling water to thin cream and
for washing batter; thirty to forty
pounas toe per day answers lor
150 rocNos or bottib.
For cooling and shipping cream more
is required. Lake ice is delivered at
and manuiactured ice at ho cents
per 100 pounds, in any quantity we
may desire. These are about prices of
ice at all inland railroad towns in tbe
State where there are no factories.
The creamery is very popular with the
patrons, all of whom are increasing
tbelr herds and paying more attention
to improvement of pastures and rais
ing forage. Butter is shipped into
Southern cities by tbe car load, com
ing largely from the Western cream
eries. There la do reason why this
cannot be made here if the people
will get the stock and give them tbe
LAND IS CBSAP
and good natural pastures readily pro
vided, The short winter gives us two
more months of graalnii than the North
ern dairyman can rely on. So far as
growing hay or forage is concerned, we
have a greater variety of plants, and
oar longer season distributes the har
vesting over several months, enabling
us to grow such crops at less expense.
Creameries have been started at the
following named places in this State
that I know of, while there are sev
eral more under way: Aber
deen, Macon, Meridian, Bolton,
Vicksburg, Hernando, Bin ft Springs,
Staikville, Agricultural College. Craw
ford, Verona and Tnpelo. The last
two are jast starting. All of these
creameries have been started within
the past fifteen months. So far as
heard from, they are giving satisfac
tion to patrons. Organisations for
opening new factories are being form
ed in a dosen other places, so that we
will no doubt soon have them spread
over tbe State.

Rjcbwosd.Va., December 1. Judge
Hinton's dissenting opinion in the
Cluverius murder case was filed this
evening. It contains 7000 or 6000
words and embraces a general review
of the case. The points upon which
Judge Hi n ton dissents from the opin
ion of the other members cf the
court are: First, the Court erred
ia discharging Juror Larke,
who expressed views as to
what sort of circumstantial evidence
he would require to convict ; second,
the Court erred in admitting as evi
dence tbe so called Laura Curtis let
ter, which was an invitation to Miss
Madison to Fpend some time there,
and which was proved to have
been forged by the deceased,
and was a ruse to account for
her absence daring tbe period of lying
in. The Judge aaerts that it is not
proved that the prisoner bad any
thing to do with it or aoy knowledge
of it; third, a corpus delecti was not
established with the certainty re
quired by law. H.e did not think
murder bad been proved by the
evidence, nor that the motive
for it had been shown. Judge
Hinton also Inclines strongly to the
suicide theory, and concludes: "in
any respect in which we may con
template a few ascertained facts in
this case they are certainly not abso
lutely inconsistent with the innocence
oi accused oi the crime oi muruer.
