Sowing rice still continues and it will be some time yet before the work is sll done, especially where there is a chance to irrigate tbs crop. The present outlook seems promising for rice as well ns other crops, anil many of the old settlers nre looking for a wet season, and, in the event of this being the case a good yield of rice will he the result, although the acreage Is much below that of Inst year. It seed rice could bave been obtained at a reasonable rate, and on time, there would have beeu a large acreaged of rice planted by this time. With an average yield of rice mid good prices for the product, farmers will get ont of the present financial distress, and this will stimulate new energy and more industries will spring up, and cane culture will receive more attention—for the subject of cane growing still receives attention— and a large nnmber of farmers wonld go into its cnlture again if it could be made to pay like it did a few years ago. I And, by close inquiry, that mach of the old cane stnhble froze during the winter, nnd in some Helds there is scarcely a -spear of cane to be seen, lint the new plant ing is looking flne nnd seems to be ahead of last year lit this time. I think there has been more cane planted this spring than there was last year, bnt very few farmers bave planted more than they will nBe for themselves. Before the industry received the blow which nearly killed it there was strong talk of erecting a refinery in the east part of the parish, bnt all that has been forgotten now, and no more interest will be taken in that line nntil there is ample protection behind it to keep the industry alive, then we will talk refinery again. The steam plow has beeu doing service in the rice fields this spring, and, althongh there was not many in use, still they did very well where the soil was not too soft for them; bnt they are not yet considered by many farm ers a praetieal thing in a rice field; yet iio fault can be found with them where the fields are solid enough to pay to ran the heavy things. Mules are need principally on the large rice farms, and on many of the farms the work is ran by tenants, and this system sestna to give the best satisfaction. Farm help seems to be plenty enough, bnt the demand ia small, and will be until harvest time, and will not be then nnlees the crop is a good one.; Economy ie being practised by the farmers like it never was be fore, and the bard times bave been ofaome benefit*to them ae well as a drawbaok, and it baa cured a great many of the credit plan, and this will help them ont of debt in a measure, for it makes them very eantioua about con tracting debts, especially large ones. Very little machinery ie being sold by the varions agen cies, and tjsia baa forced that elaas to oortail expenses to correspond with the hard tloiaa. Thera has been qnile a large tratte in horses and rnnlaa, In apita of the hard times, and very little easli has been paid out for this stock. Thera haa bean a vary good busi ness dona In hog a the past season, and the outlook is promising fur u bettor trade In this line forth# next year, and thorn will ho quite u bnatuess dona thla Ml in hogs if no iiUMoo gets in I« destroy the erap of pigs now coming on. —Ooiesaien »loo Bird, in South era F ormer. _ t '»tni » toMi ff K» *mL There ie nothin« Jest as «ood es Dr. »ini's Now Wcsovory far Consumption. - A Colds, so demand It and do nofpsvcMt the dealer to «all yon a sob. ... m. gill net ehdm Mtossla any ip order iq pahs m «s . I A Tribote to Bryan. 'Among the graduates this year from the law department of the Tnlana University, New Orleans, was oar yonng friend, Mr. John H. Overton, son of Jadge Tboa. Overton, of Markeville, La. The Commencement exorcises of the law department was held at the Grand Opera House, New Orleans, on Monday night, May 17tb. Mr. Overton was distinguished as be ing selected to deliver the Salu tatory Address. He chose oa hie snbject, "Yonng Men," ood show ed from the pages of history, an eient and modern, that yonng man bave bad a grant deal to do with shaping the course of tinman events. His address was a masterly ef fort, and showed that intellectu ally be stands in the front ranks, ns well as being gifted with good "borse sense," os tbe following tribute to Hon. Wm. J. Bryen folly shows. Speaking of Mr. Bryan, Mr. Overton said: * Scarcely have six months elapsed since the majestic world was awaiting with bated breath tbe result of tbe grandest politi- j cal battle ever foagbt npon Amer ican soil. Bat in that severe straggle whose yootbfnl arm was it that bore the banner of Demo cracy against tbe Repnblican hosts? Whose matchless oratory wus it that roused, in liberty's name, tbe yeomanry of this land; that made the lncre-lords to seize with nervous grasp their gold bags, and caused even capitalist bound England to tremble 'like some belabored hound beneath the muster's lash? Ab, bis views may have been erroneous views, and bis cause may have been an nnjnst canse, bnt we yonng men may safely bold him up as an ex ample of ayontb who bas wrought for himself an imperishable des tiny, as one worthy to rank as a lord in tbe intellectual aristoc racy of America. • There is yet hope for this na tion when sneh brainy yonng men as Mr. Overton arrange them selves along the front with the fearless Bryan, willing and anx ious to defend him and bis conrse before tbe world. We like to see yonng men think and act for them selves, and if necessary blaze ont a new pathway through the forest of conservatism, which to so many graduates of tbe day remains with them impenetrable, because un popular. In tbejeouree of bis addreas.Mr. Overton specially mentioned tbs genius and ability of Mr. Bryan. Every allnsion to Mr. Bryan by the yootbfnl orator was greeted with load epplsnee by bis uadi enoe, showing that tbe late Demo cratic candidate for the Presi dency ie beloved and admired by many mors in New Orleans and Louisiana than Mr. Overton.— Town Talk. ____ How many yonng men and yeong women are out off jnet ns the fntnre seems brightest and fullest of promise! They are taken away py the disease whieh causes over one-eixth of all the deaths in the world—the disensa whioh doctors call oonanmption.

A large majority of employee are disposed to meaaora the amount of sarviea rendered by tbe amount of pay received. If they era wall paid they work xealoaaly, if poorly paid they ora dispirited and prone to "aloek off," arguing that anyway they are giving a dollar's worth of work for o dollar. This is true ia a narrow sans*, but the troe policy in' a broader sense ia for an employa to disre gard present pay and, looking to the fntnre, do hie allotted tank to the boat of bis ability. In the rare oases where an employer ia so short sighted aa not to recognise sad reward faithfnl service, the employe who baa dona bis fall doty esn find employment else where. And if he does not get promotion or higher pay in bio old situation—and tbe reward* can not always be given—be will at least bava steady employment, for when it ie necessary to lay off a certain nnmber of employee, be sure tbe best and moat thitbfal wilt be retained, wbila those who are always watching the clock for quitting time will be discharged. Tbe yonng man jnat entering upon a business career wonld do well to take this fact as a gnide for bis own conduct. For him present pay is a matter of little importance compared with tbe opportunity to establish a reputa tion for honesty, zeal and indnstry. He sbonld not therefore, so much as think of measuring bis zeal by hia pay, bat devote all energies to tbe welldoing of tbe dntiee as signed to bim, do sll in bis power to promote the interests of bis employer and make of bimaelf, in some sort, a uecesaity to him. A few days since we suggested to a yonng man jnat entering npon a business career that be sbonld start ont with the hope of some time becoming a co-partner in the firm. His reply was: "Yea, and if tbe boss suspected that yon bad any snch design yon wonld promptly get tbe grand bonnee." We cannot believe that any "boss" wonld be snob a donkey. Of coarse, the employe coaid only hope to rise each a position by faithfulness, intelligence, honesty and zeal in bis employer's inter ests, and no one but an idiot would willingly repudiate snob qualifications or discourage snob laudable ambition.—States.

A dis patch from Boston, May 13, says: "Great excitement is caused in Chatham by the fact that tbe principal of tbe High School this morning expelled tbe entire senior class. The class oonsista of girls, and bad rebelled refaeing to com ply with a recent order of the school board requiring each papil in tbo high school to prepare sn essay every night at home. Tbe graduating class said that they al ready bad all tbe work on band that they coaid possibly cover properly, and that this order in creased tbeir tasks to a point be yond endnrance. They all bave some household duties to attend to at borne, and they farther say that the committee has no author ity to eay wbat they sbonld do after school boors. This morning there was open rebellion, result ing in the expulsion of the entire class of bright young women. Tbe indignation of the parents of these girls knows no bounds, and they, as well as tbe girls, have tbe sympathy of tbe townspeople. There was a ball given by these girls to-night to raise a fond for tbe class, and there was a fall at tendance and an exciting discus sion of tbe incident." So many inquiries bave been made in regard to tbe legality of pntting , "paators" on silver dollars that tbe treasory department has issued the following circular; "A new way of using the government coins for advertising pnrpoees was brought to tbe attention of the secretary of the treasury to day. Id a remittance from a sooth era bank were fonnd a nnmber of silver dollars, on one side of wbicb was pasted the printed card, or label, of a bneineas firm. As tbe paper on which the notices are printed is eot a little smaller than tbe coin and stock on with »k« moat adhesive glue, tbe removal of the paper is made with great diffonlty. Tbe inventor, of tbe scheme evidently counts on doing aa extensive business, as at tb* bottom of the card ia printed 'Copyrighted, 1888.'
