SSMALL GESIN CROPS.
The time is now drawing near
when provision s.hould be made
ocr the small grain crops for the
eouind year-wheat, oats and rye.
On the weil ordered farmt this is
all arranged and determined on
beforehand, the lands intended t.or
the crops having been selected by
anitable previous rotation. Far
mers sometimes become impatienat
under too much advice as to the
pitching 'of their crops, and the
advice is often given in , a way
which makes it offensive, and then
the effect is lost. It may be unwise,
therefore, to urge too persistently
unless good reasons can be given.
With the vast majority of farmers
in the Cotton States cotton is the
"money crop," and there is conse
quently always a strong temptation
to make that the leading crop, too
often to the neglect of others equal
ly if not more important. If you
will bear in mind that food, abund
ant food for man and beastis and
abould he the first consideration of
every prudent man, that this is of
prime necesitysand must be had,
even iit takes the last cent of the
cotton crop, a very short calculation
wiB show that it isbetter to make
it than to buy it. "Bought corn
never fattens horses." The sleek
team, the abnant dairy, the fat
poskere and the wensatocked poul
try yard are only seen when abun
denied is made on the land and
not purchased from a distance.
These are hdine truths whiob we
wish to keep constantly before our
people, and when the temptation is
is strong to put in cotton at tha ex
pense of grain, let every prodent
man make his own calculations.
A New Hampshire farmer who
heard of a New Yorker stopping at
one of the mountain hotels, drove
thirteen miles one day last week to
ask him if he thought the prospec
tive shortage of crops would bring
about another financial panic. He
waited around the hotel for several
hours, and finally ascertained that
the man he wanted to see war
absent, and would be gone all day.
"Where has he gone?"
"Over to Silver Creek."
"Gone a-fishin', and calkerlatin'
to be gone all day?"
"Took a bottle of brandy and
a lunch and a silver-plated fiah
pole, and went off kinder onoon
aared, did he?'
"Well, then, I guess I'll jog
back hum and finish them 'taters,"
continued the old man with a sigh
of relief. "It kinder seems to me
that if this kentry was in danger
of a kerfiamux them chaps from
New York wouldn't come here to
fool their time away sucken' in
mornin' frogsand scrapin' the oreeks
for fish bones!"- Wall Street News.

The porter of the parlor car has
"Beg yo' pawdon, sah," he re

"Dat was a trade dollab yo' hand

"Ab, was it?" replied the plebe,
as he took it from the outstretched
hand and examined it. "Take this

and 'pocketing the. dollar the
traveler handed the astounded
potentate of the road a lead nickel.
The insensible body of the' porter
was left at the next station, and
after physicians had worked at
him for two hours he recovered

at the amount.
"Fourteen dollars and a half!"
he gasped, and with a dull sicken

As the corpse was being shoveled
into the coroner's wagon, the pro
prietor of the restaurant angrily
reprimanded the waiter.
"Didn't I tell you not to give
the check to that uickly looking

"Yes" he said as they came down

A Mwrnxz- "I understand

"Yes, sir; we will sell you a pair
