In a__private letter, Vice-President.
. H. Wilson of North Carolina, tbus
pxpressos himself: "I hate 'Just
the December Cultivator and glanced
over it some. It is as bright and en
tertaitlig as ever. Mr. "illmatl, of
Iamburgi 8. C., Is about correct when
r says (e salvation of farming with us
gonsists in raising livestock to improve
dur lands. My plan is to feed upabout
everything rafsed on the except flour
and cottdtt; thits making cattle to sell
and imliroving tle land with their
manut:e. And I intend to follow this
plan right along regardless of every
thing. This will make our farms pay
and keep us well supplied with pro
visions at the same time. Nearly all
enlightened farmers do this, and the
poor Southerner, with his all-cotton
and gullled-soil is about the chief ex
ception. Necessity is the only thing
which will over drive him into a bet
ter system. Other and good plans for
improving land have been suggested
in the pages of the Cultivator, but
how few will avail themselves of them.
Poverty is the cry of the cotton planter
and this will continue until he learns
to improve his methods. A small
majority are simply in the hands of
others and are greater slaves than the
negroes were in ante bellam days. It
won't do to tell your neighbors so:
they will fight you; but it is true nev
IIard Times and Book Farming.
It has always been the fashion among
a large class of our Canadian farmers
to decry "book farming" as being al
together the op.osite of practical farm
ing. The farmer who year after year
blunders along in a hap-hazard sort of
way, making up in a great measure
by plodding industry what he lacks in
intelligence, is pointed to as the prac
tical farmer, while the man who goes
about his work like a rational being
and insists on thoroughly understand
ing it is called the "book farmer."
Now it often happens that for the first
few years of the careers of the two
farmers of these widely differing types
the so called "book farmer" appears to
have considerably the worst of it.
They are on new farms perhaps, and
as the soil is of apparently inexhausti
bly fertility the one's care in saving
manure is to all appearances thrown
away, though of course it tells in the
long run. In the meantime the "prac
tical man is skin1nn his fa-nt and put
ting the proceeds into his pocket in
the shape of dollars. And in the mat
ter of stock "book farmer" is spending
his money in laying the foundation of
a well-bred herd of cattle and valuable
flock of sheep, while the "practical
farmer" is contenting himself with
"scrubs" that cost him a mere trifle.
To all appearances the latter hits much
the best of it, but. any one who visits
them ten years after their start in life
will see that while the "book farmer"
has been laying deep and sure founda
tions of a prosperous career, the so
called "practical" farmer has been ab
sorbing his resources in making a
mere show of prosperity.
.'he present season of unexampled
agricultural depression in ingland
has shown the value of "brains" to
the ftrmer. Times are so hard that it
is only wvhat we arc pleased to call
"book farme:-s" who can succeed at
all. Every poundI( of miannre has to be
save(t, anId every toot of land made the
mCost of, so that it is easy to see hmow
gmIlckly the so-callgd ''practical farm

WASHINGTON, D. C., Apt 1 22.-OnI
Thursday, April 16, the nelgroes of the
District celebrated the twenty-third
anniversatry of the emancipation of the
slaves. As usual, the parade was quite
large. The President stood at the
north door of the White House and re
viewed the procession. He was greet
ed with cheers by many of the organi
zations in the line. An amusing in
cident occurred at the corner of Fif
t teenth street and Pennsylvania Ave
nue. Quito a crowd had gathered to
view the approaching procession, and
the streets were packed with negroes.
Just at that moment a well dressed
gentleman, a King's county Democrat,
marched down the street, lighting his
path through the sea of dusky faces
with a lantern in full blaze. le never
smiled, but when ho reached Willard's
Hotel a crowd of his companions saw
the joke and burst out Into a hearty
Republican rule has thoroughly im
bued the negro with an overrated
idea of his own importance as a- politi
cal factor. This may be seen from the
speech of Fred Douglass, delivered in
Lincoln Memorial Church last Thurs
rday evening. Touching the policy of
the Democratic administration the
"The President could adopt a pollcy
of indifference In regard to t he negroes
in the South, or ho might pursue a
temporizing one-a policy of good
Lord and good devil; or he might
accept the Mississippi and South Car
olina plan and keep by fraud and
blood 153 clectoral votes for a Demo
cratic candidate in 1888; or he might
sustain a course of absolute fidelity to
the Constitution as it stands, protect
ing white man and black man alike.
The latter, Mr. Douglas said, he was
encouraged to believe that the
President had resolved to do. Let
the Democratic party do justice to
the negro and it will again seat itself
in power four years hence. But if it
fall into old ruts and forget that slav.
cry was an anachronism it would be
ignominionsly driven from power.
Unless it applied a corrective to the
negro outrages in the South the Au
gusta speech of James G. Blaine would
be the keynote of the next campaign.
