One of the best speeches made at

of this district deeide to place a .candi

One-of the most unnecessary things
in the world, is. a falsehood among bus
iness men and their clerks. Tho mis
representation of goods, both as to
qujjty jnd cost, is unnecessary and
hard y ever of benefit. The statement
that an article is "all silk," or "all
wool," or "the best flour," may at
times deceive, but those who are
gocJl judjes of the goods it can only
drive to other places to' trade. We
kn that there are some persons who.
are close that they have to be con- i
vincctlt hat they are getting goods for!
less thwi their value, but to such cus
tomersVerchants should make but one

I wish to inform my cane-growing pa
irons that I intend to enlarge my bor-
ghum Factory in order that I may be
prepared to manufacture the eanc as
fast as it ripens, so there will be no loss
from damaged cane.
I will not pledge myself to manufact
ure any large amount for any one per-
sou. 1 want to do justue to all, my pa
trons asliear as possible. I will man
ufacture for one-half of the syrup, not
to exceed, say, sixty gallons for each
person. Any amount over that sixty
gallons I 'yill charge" twenty-tlireo cents
The Early Amber variety ripens in
ninety daygfroui the time it is planted.
I would recommend some late plants
ibout the middlo of June. If all plant
early it will all ripen together in the
hot mouth of August, when it will be
difficult to keep it any length of time
from damaging. I may get the ma
chinery to swing out the sugar, provi-
