soon. H~e will write on divers Bulb

have if they succeed in fiheir different

more experience than a printing office
full of 'om, lHe is now.out of the
boo business for the rest of his days,
if he lives to be as old as Methuselah.
Hie's been very busy of late doctoring
his sickly looking cotton and corn.
He says there's only one kind of med
icinlo that will kill grass and make
cotton growv, and that is elbow grease
but he (lon't much like to apply the

this coulntry' is far different from tihe
gardeni of Eden anyhow. He wishes
hie could have been in old Adam 's
pla1ce; lie bets he'd never sinnied, but
would have stayed there and kept
that garden of paradise forever. He
says everything is contrary here for
wvhen you try to grow cotton the grass
will growv knee high, when you try to
grow hay the weeds growv knee high,
md whon you feed the weeds to the
