Plant plenty of cotton, of course;
it always brings tbo money; and with
it you will be enabled to pay for your
guano?tfcat valuable and indis
pensable article, Without which it
would be very foolish for any man Jo
try to ciako a crop. It is more easily
applied, aud so much better than
stable manure, and so little troublo
to procure. A ride to town or to the
depot, and the simple signing of your
name to a slip of paper will be the
means of obtaining for you all you
may desire. Stable manure and cot*
ton seed arc too bulky, and require
so much li.ore labor to app'y, that by
many their use is utterly ignored, und
the fashionable, cheap, valuable and
concentrated guano has taken the
place of the old-fashioned manures.
Plant largely of cotton. It sounds
big 10 talk about your crop of cotton.
It serves to make you interested in
the money market and the price of
the staple both in this country and
in Europe. It. seems to quicken the
perceptive faculties, and cause you to j
ea'culato how muCh guano you can
buy lor so much cotton, for by many
this is the purposo for which it is
raised; or, if not, it is the only pur
pose to which the money received lor
it can be applied.
Plant largely of cotton and neglect
3-our c orn crop, because if yon make
c otton you can purchase corn (on a
credit, and meat, too) but if you raise
corn und a plenty of it, you will have
hit horses, fat cattle, fat hogs, aud
money in hand, and then you will be
deprived of the exquisite pleasure of
asking for credit, aud being some
times refused. This luxury will have
to be dispensed with. And do you
not d Cid re this?of course not, for it
t" . . ? .
is stub a dengl)tful feeling to owe
your factors, to be indebted to your
j merchants, to know that almost every
man you meet bus your note in his
pocket, past due, and to be but ton
holed and dunned a dozen times a
r.'ny; it adds so much J.o a man's
popularity, it is so soothing to your
i nerves, so tranquilizing to your
whole system; gives jou such au ex
cellent appetite, and produces such
quiet and refreshing slumbers, that
you cannot allbrd to dispense with it.
Heing in debt is such a glorious feel
ing, so conducive to health and hap
piness, that you feel it tob; your
duty to yourself, to your family, aud
to your friends, to owe, and to do
this plant plenty of cotton, for it will
he sure to keep you in debt, and if
this will make you contented, you
will be happy indeed. You can, in
j your leisure moments, sympathize
i with your neighbor who has a smoke
house full of bacon, of his own rais
ing; a corn crib well filled with largo
cars of the golden grain, who has
plenty of money and U troubled
about seeking a sale and secure in
vestment for his surplus. Go and see
him; you can relieve him of his
troublo; your plantation lies adjoin
ing his, and as a friend, assist him in
investing his money by borrowing it,
and give him a mortgage on your
place. What a satisfaction this will
be to you, to know you have done
your neighbor good, and to know
that in a few years he will have con
trol of all your premises, and you be
relieved entirely from tbo cares and
responsibilities of ownership. What
a joke it will be to tell how you have
succeeded In making your neighbor
with his corn and his meat pay the
taxes now, formerly paid by you.
Put then he deserves to be punished
in this way, because he never was
much of a planter; ho only made a
few bales of cotton, and was hardly
known out of his district; but you are
a big planter?you make your hund
red bags, and are known in Savan
nah as a gentleman who is always in
debt, whose cotton crop never real
izes a sufficient amount to pay your
I expenses for the current year. This
is your reputation; do you enjoy it?
If you do, plant largely ot cotton. If
I you do not like the picture, change
your course, aud try to live at home;
make your plantation self-sustaining;
plant corn, raise meat, and let your
cotton crop be restricted to n surplus
only, first raising; everything else you
need 111 preference to the snowy
staple. When you do this, then a
change will cotne; you will soon bo
your own master, and not be as you
are now, and as you have been lor
years?the slave of the cotton factor
and the commission merchant. Take
ndvice while there is time; profit by
the admonition before it is too late,
and plant more corn.?&Ve?<rWwiYA!

Too Much Noise fo?* the Pi/.e.?
After :> :ost ridiculous and extrava
<.? . . p|< :i by a young lawyer, in a
trivial ens , tin older lawyer, who had
a why bl skying quaint things, re
marked. . opening the opposing side
of the. case, that this young friend's
elaborate plea reminded him of the
experience of a neighbor of his who
was once engaged in breaking a colt,
and the story he told o*' it was in
substance like this:
Tbc colt hrakcr made his young
son hide in the bush, while he himself
v as to mount the animal and put him
at bis top speed i o the hiding place,
and then the boy was to rush sudden
ly out and shout "Boo!" tho idea
being to prove how well the colt would
stand the scars.
Everything was done according to
programme, hut the result was alto
gether too much of a scare for the
colt, who kicked up bis heels and put
down his head and the old man was
thrown over it far into the road on .
(.'learing the dust from his loosened
teeth he made for the boy with the
switch he had cut to drive the colt,
and with rage began to dress the
astonished young man down,shouting,
"What did you do that for ? What
did you do that for ?"
"But father," said the crying boy,
''you told me to holler "boo !"
"Yes," j.said the old man, "but,
dang it, ;;it was altogether soo big a
'boo' for si)*small a colt."
A Thoughtful Tailor.?A

in one of our tailor shops getting
iheasuryd for a vest the other after
"Married or single ?"' 'queried the
merchant after taking down the num
"Unman ied," said the young man,
with a blush.
"Inside pocket on the left hand
side, then," observed tho tailor, as if
to himself, making a moiuorandum to
that effect. After a moment's pause
the young man from the country was
prompted to ask :
"What difference docs my being
married or unmarried make with the.
inside pocket of my vest?"
"/*h, my dear sir," observed the
tailor, with a bland smile, * all differ
ence possible, as you must see. Being
unmarried you want the pocket on
the left side, so as to bring Ihn y!::;g
lady's picture next to your heart."
"But don't the married man also
want his wife's picture next to his
heart?'; queried the i'?xi?tis youth.
"Possibly there is an instance of
that kiinl,'' said the tailor, arching
his eyebrows, "but I never heard of

a gossipping writer,penned in a boubt

wanderer until at last they have
reached the threshold of Vassur itself
and brought forth the following racy

A Mouse Swai lot;go ey a Boy.?
A curious and very singular accident
happened to a son of James OTIelan,
who resides en Saratoga street,
Cohoes, N; Y. It scorns that Willie,
the youngest child, a bright boy of
twelve or fifteen years of age, laid
down in the corner of the kitchen,
and being tired out from play, was
soon fast asleep. The fasher was
reading at a table placed in the cen
tre of the room, the rest of the family
wore all in bed, and consequently the
house was perfectly still. Suddenly
a startling cry came from the child;
which aroused the father, who made
a rush for tho boy and asked him
what was the matter. The boy clasp
ed his father in his arms, and with
starting eyes exclaimed, "Father, I
swalled a mouse, and I feel him biting
me inside!" In an instant the father
had the house aroused, and a mess
enger was sent fur a doctor, who soon
arrived and administered an emetic,
which had the desired effect, and the
boy, after some terrible retching,
threw up the mouse, and, strange to
relate, the creaturo was alive and
active, and made his escape to a hole
in the floor. It appears that while
the child slept he had his mouth open,
and the mouse, which was a very
?small one, got frightened by a mus
cular action of the child, jumped into
his mouth and down his throat; but
how lie remained alive in the boy's
stomach is a mystery.

The are thousands of children in
this country who have never seen a
silver ten cent piece or silver quarter.
What a very interesting kindergarten
lesson there is now in store for the
little folks. Paterfamilias must take
the first ten cent piece that comes to
him in trade, and carry it to his little
blue-eyed darling, and exp'ain to her
the name of the coin, its value, and
teach her its commercial usese by
sending her to invest it in sugarplums.
Formerly it was a maxim that a
young woman - should never be mar
ried until she had ?pun herself a sot
of body, tahlo and bed linen. From
this custom all unmarried women
were termed spinsters.
