It was the last business day of a dull week, and the only benefit accruing from the session was the regu lar list of quotations, the real market basis, and not so real, after all, as somo quotations are too far apart for correct Indications to be drawn therefrom.

M. Tlokllghter, of Groveland, Go.,- has written to Con gress what to do about it. In a letter addressed to "The House of Senate," Mr. Tlckllghter tells In detail how he destroyed the army worm In his ten acre confleld by turning Jn a large drove of turkeys. He says the turkeys eat up the army worms in two days, and Mr. Tlckllghter adds, "And If had not been for my turkoys I would not have any corn now. That Is the only way to get rid of army worms. If it had not been for my turkeys I would have lost 500 bushels of corn by those worms. That Is the only way I know how to check those army .worms, which is a pest fo the farmers, and It they are checked they 'will ruin the Southern farmers. So please send me a check for said amount, for that Is the only way to destroy the army worm." ' Mr. Tlckllghtor signs himself "yours truly," and writes in red Ink. Con gress recently allowed $25,000 to destroy the army worm ,and It Is presumed this Is the amount he wants for his advice. Cotton Crop Report.
