The Montgomery Advertiser advises
its friends in tho country to "plant
more corn." It believes "corn is to bo
corn" during tho coming yenr, uud
that it will commaud u good price. It
is lead to this opinion because the des?
titution of the farmers out Wost, ow?
ing to crop failures last season, com?
pelled inauy to abaudon their farms
aud others having no money to buy
seed, have boeu able to pluut only that
which was lurnished by the Sutto.
Our contemporary couoludes thai
these conditions are suOioient to make
a decided reduction in the crop, and
now that tho Western section of the
country lias beou visited by saud anil
snow storms, it is more probable that
the shortage will be greater thuu was
first anticipated. These are all rea<ou
able propositions and will doubtless
have their weight,
The Advertiser, in urging tho plant
ing o! more corn, makes a point which,
aloDg with what it has before said ou
the subject, very properly says: ''By
taking advantugo of tho mistortuues ol
our Western brethren wo will be in a
condition at harvest time to send ihetu
n few train loatis of provisions and cou
vinee them tbut while drouth, semi,

Some facts, which according to tho
Providence, P., I, Journal, are not
pleasant to coutemplute, will bo
brought out in the forthcoming labor
report of Labor Coiumi6btouer Carrol
D.Wright, regarding the employment
of women in this country. It stales that
not only has the whole number of
women employed doubled since 1870,
while the population has increased but
01 per cent, but a very striking in?
crease has taken place in the Dumber of
women employed in manufactories.
Tho Journai deplores the whole busi?
ness, it toys: i
??The whole number of women en?
gaged in earning n livelihood iu 1870
was 1,863,'288, aud in 181)0,3,914,073, In
those twenty yours the population in?
creased from :)H,.">,")K,:i71 to ?2,0'22,2? I.
In 1870 805,000 women were employed
in manufactories, and in 1890, 1,027,
377. A little examination of these!
figures will show that the percent
ago of increase amongst women era
ployed iu fuotorios has been very large.
It may be expressed in figure's ns fol?
lows: In 1870 one woman in overy 109
""tons irioluded in tbo population was
' '-'iv employe.
?ho proportion was one
existing between the numbor of women
working iu manufacturing establish
lni'uts and the gouernl social iifu of tlio
conutry. In iiny cbho thu showing is
nut u pleasant one, ami hardly beam
out some id the lofty ideas which are
ntntutaiued as to the natural and in*
erensingly high staudard of Amurieuu
Thu forthcoming report of Mr.
Wright wii! furnish nu interesting sub?
ject for invostigatiuu, but just why tho
Journal should object to tho employ?
ment of women in tho line indicated
