PrODUCTION AND PRICE.
Below we give an interesting tabl
showing the number of bales raise(
and the highest and lowest prices pai<
each year since 1825.
The prices are those of the cotton
movement at New York and the crop
for each year is that produced in the
United States alone. It is impossible
to give the prices for this market, but
they varied about the same per cent. as
they do now with New York prices.

As our farmers are talking about re
ducing the acreage in cotton in. order
o lessen the production, and thus raise
the -price, these figures might be
studied with profit. Supply and de
mand seems to have regulated the price
of cotton in some of the seasons since
182-5, but it is such a fickle thing that
it is difficult to discover it, for in some
years, when there wa a decrease in
the supply, cotton brought a lower
price than in years when a larger crop
was made. If we are to judge by the
season of 1871--72, we would say that a
decrease in production might raise The
prfbe, for a million and a half bales less
that year than the year before increased
the price from 21.1 to 272.
Since 1866, with few exceptions, how
ever, the crop has grown larger each
year and the price less, until in 1890-91
it went lower than it had been since
1848. The people about that time
didn't have the sewing machine to do
their sewing, and such things as floun
ces and furbelows on calico dresses
were unknown. The people also were
very simple in their habits, and the
good wives and lassies did all the
family knitting and sewing with their
deft fingers. Store-bought hosiery and
ready-made clothing were seldom seen
in the country. The winter clothing
was made out of wool, and the hosiery
of the same material, all done at htome.
With the invention and use of the
sewing machine and machines for mak
ing all the cotton trimmings of the
present day, the demand for cotton has
increased. But the price has not got
much higher, if any, and the cost ofrais
ing thbe staple has increased.
If, besides decreasing the average in
cotton, our farmers will give their at
enption more to raising breadstuffs,
the vill solve the problem as to their
presenti depressed condition. They can
not, lo'wever, manufactu're all the
cltig hi families as our
forefathers did, otoieheaper to buy
them, but they will find that some
attention to wool-growing will be more
profitable than nothing at all in this

A t the Baptist Church.
MR. EDITOR: It was my privilege to
isten on Sunday last to the Rev. Mr.
Wright, the popular and eloquent di
Tine of the Baptist church of this city. I
Ele selected for his subject Luke 15th,
Ld part of the 2nd verse, "He receiv-i
~th sinners" The announcement of
s text at once fixed my attention, ast
had heard Rev. S. B. Jones, D. D.,
)reach from the same text years ago at
andy Springs camp ground in Ander-t
on circuit when he was the presidingT
Ider of Greenville District, though hei
sed the whole verse, "This man re- t
eiveth sinners and eateth with them." e
Mr. Wright very tenderly touched c
pon the feeling of man to man, and r
entured out upon the great sea of hu- e
nanity-man concerned about his fel- t
ow man. I was reminded of Paul y
hilst he was a prisoner in Rome, hav- t
ng been already brought before Nero s
be second t ime when he wrote to Titus, t
us own son, after the common faith, a
rho was left in Crete, and told him to a
warn the people to speak evil of no e
aan; to be no brawlers, but gentle, y
owing all kindness unto all men.g
r. Wright dwelt considerably upon a
bis line of thought, and one of his s
trongest points was that the poor had t
be gospel preached unto them, and hi
ow Christ remembered all of those t
ho were in need and trusted in him. u

The importance of beginning right
will be conceded by every teacher. To
many a teacher the battle is won or
lost the first day of the school session;
p::-rhaps the first day.
We should have our work all mapped
out before we enter the s!chool room,
and sbould adhere as strictly as possi
tile to the plan. It is highly probable
that cireuni,tances will arise for which
no provision has been niade; then the
good judgment of the teacher will be
called into play.
hen we enter the school-room we
we should be alive to our work and
alert. Let our actions impress upon
the children the fact that we have a
work in hand to do, and that we in
tend to do it. Do not let us delude
ourselvts with the idea that our pupils,
being children, can not place a just
estimate upon ur. On the contrary,
they are ro t critical observers, and
soon iatike up their nids as to the
ability of the teacher to manage them:
hence the great value of a favorable
The first thing to be impressed upon
the children, is that without their will
ing attention we can not teach them
succe:sfully. Then show thein that to
be able to give this attention good
order must prevail; that while we have
the authority to enforce good order, we
desire that it emanate froni their wil
ling obedience and their sense of right;
that we wish not to govern them, but
to assist theim in~governing thernselves.
Our success as teachers will'be in pro
portion to our ability to arouse the self
activity of the pupils, and to secure
their willing attention. By self-activity
we mean that which the pupil does for
himself. It is what we do for ourselves
tiat educates. We learn to do by doing.
The teacher assists the pupil in /rarn
ing, (not hearing, as the Editor inade
tis say in last issue,) presents the occa
Sions, and determines the extent and
degree of his activity.
We must convince our pupils that
we are not come to exact obedience by
the rod; but that we are come to them
as their best friend, with the earnest
iesire in our hearts to do all for then
that we are able, and that it is our con
5tant purpose to elevate them to a high
plane of niental, moral and physical
In the manageient of a school self
-ontrol is absolutely necessary. A
eacher who has not this qualification
eed not expect to attain to the greatest
efficiency as an educator. Many a
tudent has been discouraged by sharp
ind ill-judged reprimands from a
leacher who had not sufficient self-con
rol, and who in calmer moments felt
ishamed of his hastiness. In regard
,o reprimands and punishments the
rreatest caution should be observed.
We must study the pecnliar disposit ion
)f our pupils. Here some knowledge
)f educational psychology is indispens
tble. Different children require differ
mnt treatment both as to development
)f mind and morals. Just as a skillful
>hysician administers different medi
ines to different persons for thbe same
lis-ase; so a skillful teacher admimis
ers different punishments to difi'ere,t
>upils for the same offence. The idi
syncrasies of the patient must be
;aken into consideration. The punish
nent which would subdue one child
ould render anothercallous.
In these days the efficiency of a school
s not reckoned by the number of flog
~irgs administered per day; hut on the
>ter hand the tact and skill of the
eacher is evinced in a good, orderly
ichool carried on with the minimum
>f corporal punishment.
If we win the love and confidence of
mur pupils we need anticipate no trouble
.s to their management. To' win this
ove and confidence prove ourselves
corthy of it. Be perfectly natural, if
t is natural with you to be kind. con
iderate and sympathetic. If these
raits are not natural, then be un
atural: by all means be kind, consid
rate and sympathetic. Do not let us
ink it beneath our dignity to partici
ate in the games of the children dur
ng play time. Right here our leader
ip is needed. Play should be carried
n with the view of resting and invig
rating the pupils. Exertion must be
elieved by amusement. Too violent
xercise is to be avoided as violating
oth physiological and hygenic princi
'les. Aside from doing great good in
bus shaping play and making it sub
erve a good pr.rpose, the teacher has a
etter opportunity to enter that subtle

TEXANS LOSE FAITH.
They Say the Governmient's Rain-making
was a Failure.
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS. Octoler 22.- 1
Private advices received from San Di- ea
ego and other town of the section Vi
where the Government's rain-making PE
experiments were made utterly dis- sa
credit the first reports, and the cor- th
respondents assert that, after nearly di
seventy-two hours of continued bom
bardment, not enough rain fell to lay
the dust. What did fall was brought
down by a norther that blew tip that
night, and caused showers at many
points outside the sphere of the explo- Li
In the San Diego part of the coun- %I
try the whole thing is regarded as a -
grand fizzle, and in support of this -
view of the matter inquirers are re
ferred to any reputable citizen of San
Diego, Texas. The money for the San
Diego experiment was put up by
neighboring storkmen. The amount
was -32,000, and they are all protesting.
They say that the results in Texas, far
froni being a complete demo.istration
of the practicability of the theory as
laid down by Dyrenforth and young
Ellis clearly show that there is nothing
in the weeks spent on the "C"
Ranch, near Midland, slight rains fell
in that section. At the same time last
year miles of the Southern Pacific
track were washed out by a tremen
dous downpour. No rain-maker was
ill sight thei.
At El Paso the only result was a
heavy precipitation, likely to occur at
any time. At Corpus Christi it rained
cuntinuously from natural causes, and
the cloud compellers had no chance to
do anything. At San Diego the result
has been practically nothing. It is
stated that Congress will be asked for a
large appropriation to continue the ex
peiiments. The ranchmen of Western
Texas would like to see the Govern
ment put up some money; they will
put up no more themselves.
