The next thing for the levee board to do is to damn tbe Mississippi river. I*. Jackson is having quite a tussle with his mail route, and claims that it takes two horses, two men and two dugouts to make a trip. Mr. Brainny, of Sand Itidge, was in this locality last Sunday making preparations te commence fanning as soon as the water recedes a little more. Our post master is getting very thin, his salad patch is gone, and his supply of pop corn is getting low. since the greet levee has proven a failure, why not let up before every thing in the bottoms is drownded? Some of the oldest citizens of this county have been encouraging the slaughtering of deer during the pres ent uvtflow, and have went so far as to agree to paj any tines that might be assessed against au>body for so do ing. Let's run them out of the county. Tne water lacked 2 foot of reaching the ninety seven mat k at this place, and it the great levee had not had the water dammed up so that it could not flow through the sloughs and bayous, we would cot have had any water at this place, and it would not have reached thirty-six feet at Memphis. Raw turnips unis’, be the only diet of Honorable Responsible Rodney Mc Joy these days, as we note that his slumbers are frequently interrupted by dreams of China, the race problem and line turnip patches. We think that a change of diet would be beneficial to bim. J. M Gunter, of Sand Ridge, was in tiiis locality last Tuesday, and reports everything in a flourishing condition— that is above water. We aie the puui possetsers of a billion dollar levee and it washed away, and a big oveiflow that is near ly as high as the levee tax will be when the Arkansas legislature gets done raising them, and a hog law that pre vents the raising of meat.

Upon a safe estimate not less than 400,000 tons of cotton seed are used each spring in planting. The seed is sown lavishly in drills—not dropjied at certain distances, as corn—and after the plants are up the crop is thinned with a hoe, more than nine-tenths of the young plants being cut out. Here we find that the seed U9ed in planting the cotton crop would bring in the market at least $6,400,000. As nine tenths of this is wasted, we see here a total waste of over five and one-hall million dollars ($5,760,000.) It is time for the cotton growers ol the South to call a halt to this ex travagance. The old system of sowing cotton seed in the drill is a remnant of the tiroes when cotton seed was almost worthless. Since then their value has so much enhanced that a change should be made in the manner of planting. In stead of sowing the seed in drills drop them at a distance wanted, and by fol lowing this method not only the labor of thinning is saved, but nearly 400.00C tons of good cotton seed is saved for commercial use, and the farmers of the South are five million dollars richer.' ©The Caldwell Cotton Planter oaves the seed plants and gives good stand with one peck to acre, saves enough seed to pay for itself in one season.
