A South Carolina farmer writes to the State Department of Agriculture: "MostL. of the rice that was cut in August and the last of September last season sent up young shoots almost immediately. As usual, oxen and sheep were pastured on it. But in in stances where the planters had more good pasturage than they needed, water was turned on the field for the purpose of kill ing the drop rice. The lonz-eonlinuod warm weather forced an extraordinary growth, producing a second crop, making from ten to fifteen bushels of excellent rice, which made good samples of pearly grain, slightly reduced in size. It is likely as much as five thousand bushels was saved, and perhaps more." A family of negroes living in the bend of the river, a short distance from Shubuta, Miss. , placed their infant in care of some children, among them a girl of some size. It seems they went into the woods to play, and becoming tired of the baby, and wishing to rid themselves of its demands for attention, broke its neck with stieks and threw the body into a slough near by.

The larger girl was taken out, and, by means of threats to shoot or beat to death, was forced to a con fession. The Augusta News says Georgia has a mine of wealth far greater in value than her gold fields in her timber growth. If she only utilizes it properly. Seventeen thou sand million feet of timber at the present market value, on shipboard at any of out ports, would represent a capital of $350, 000,000, and certainly, if the lumber interest (which has advanced nearly 100 per cent, in value in the last few years, while lumber has advanced only 30 per cant, during the same time) is worth an equal amount, this would make the total value of these two great sources of wealth $700,000,000, which sum far exceeds the total valuation put up on all the property of every kind in the State. Still, we venture to say, that in the list of our taxable property the lumber In terest is almost the smallest In valuation."

It is stated that for every ten hogs heads extracted from the sugar cane eleven hogsheads are lost, because no adequate machinery has been devised for crushing the cane and extracting the rich jnice there from.

A Foarth.-of-.Fuly Kxcursion Aeeldent on the Ohio The Steamer Scioto Sunk by a Collision with Another Itoat Over Fifty Persons Drowsed, " Minc.o Jusir-rTON, O., July 4. The steamer Scioto, with nb 'ut 5QJ passing-erg, collided with the John Louius in the mid dle of the river to-nijrhi, sinking the tfelots in fifteen teet of wa er, only the pilot-h :use be in visible. One of the survivors -says the Scioto was coming up the river under a full head of steam, and when ubout half a mile from Mingo Junction the John Lomas was sighted comingr down. The pilot of the Scioto whisUed for the channel, but owing to a inisundcrstandinjr twtn boats took the same side, the Louius striking the Scioto and sinking her In fifteen feet of water In three minutes from the timaof the collision. The scenes on the Scioto were henrt-rending, and the life struggles were frightful to heboid. The Lomas was ouly slightly disabled, and went to work at once to save those on board the unfortniiatfv Scioto. This task was ren dered easier by "the bright nv onl;ght, and no doubt many lives were saved from this reason WHKiuxti, W. Va.. July 5. The scene at the. wreck of the Scioto to-d ay almost beggars description. Tho anguish of those look lug for lost ones was added to tho wails and sobs of those bending over the inan imate forms of dead loved ones recovered from the water. The Asaociatesi Press report er arrived at tho scene at noon, at which time only nine toodi'jS had b;-ou recov ered. B th banks Of the rirer were lined with peojilf niaking a crowd off perhaps 2.0C0 pers0na. The work of dragging in tho vicinity for bodies is still going on. William Mulhollgnd, of Wellsvill O., under whose auspice-, the excursion on tho ill-fated Scioto was iri ven, said that the boat took, on about 203 passengers at Eas! Liverpool and 26 1 Ht Well -villa. The no" WIH vory tnuon crowd ed, and refused I stop at othr pornts where tickets had been sold. Taking his statements with others, it is safe t say thai five bundreJ souls were oa board nt tho tints of the col lision. Captain Sm th. of Martin's Ferry, who was on the .Tolin I,oma, says that, when some dis tance from th-; Scioto, ho noticed th boats were going- to come together, and made his preparations' for tho shock. Both steamers h id on a full head of steam, the Lomas going down stream tit the rate of fifteen miles per hour, and the ascending Scioto nt the rate of twelve miles. It seems to bo the prevailing opinion that the collision resulted from a mis. understnndinaTor confusion of signals. Several bodies are known to Ik In the wreck. The steamer Welcome, of this city, taftrfoe the scene of the accident this afternoon to r?ndsr aid in recovering mid raising- the sunken steamer. Pi-rrsnuRGH, Pa.. Jul 5. Tho Lomas appoursto have signa'ed first, according- to regulations, with one blast, to pass on the left. In a few minutes tho Scioto re sponded with two, and at Hie for the m'ddlo of tho river. Th- Lomas then giive two whittles, but tho boats koj t eomimr closer and closer tog-ether. Orders were given to back the en gines, lint it Wiis too tat- to do any good.

As may be im agined, the confusion on b mrd was terrible. The number of women and children on Iniard was especially large, and as the boat began to settle at once tho scene was he n-trending parents looking for their children anil vice versa, husbands for their wlvs and wives for thoir husbands, and prayers and cries tilled the air. The officors, to their credit, tried to keep the people cool, with the usual result in such cases nobody paid much attention to them. The boat began going down at once, and in throe minutes th r j was five feet of water in the cabin. Those on the lower deck (not b-ss than fifty in number) began jumping into the river, and the example fraa conta gious. Many followed them like a flock of sheep, while others more cool made their way to the hurricane roof, where there wad safety as long as it would hold up under the weight."" There were a dozen or fifteen men lying drunk on tho lower deck, and all were doubtless hurried into eternity without warning. The rivor seemed black with human beings and debris of nil kin Is, and it will be clays at least before the full extent of the disaster is known. There were three boats on the Scioto, and they were at once lowered. In the excitement the first was overcrowded and swamped, but it is believed that none of the inmates were lost. Tho other wo boats were managed better, and did good work In rescuing passengers. The Lomas was not much damaged by the accident, and, after land ing her crowd on the West Virginia shore, re turned to the h lp of those on the hurricane deck of the Scioto. Steuben vi T.I.K, O..

Last spring us boys were having a splendid time with our rubber shooters; every boy in the neighborhood had one or more. None of our mothers liked it ; some windows got broken, and when one or two little birds got killed, it made them very angry. There was a bluebird that built its nest year after year in an elm-tree close to one of our windows. One day my mother saw a boy shooting at it; he didn't hit, but she made up her mind it was time for the shooting to stop, and when, not long after, little Willie Brand had his eye most put out, they nil thought so. There was a fuss about it. There were piecos in the paper about how rubber shooters were dangerous things, and then the police came about and said that everv boy that shot would have to pay five dollars for it. They all thought that more than they could stand, so they stopped. Mother had given me ten cents for mine, long ao, and burnt it, so I was glad when the other fellows had to stop. This year we thought we'd have a little fun, and kept quiet about it Jim Barlow made mine, and it Was a first-rate shooter, I tell you; 1 gave him my top and a skate -srap and thirty marbles for it; he said 'twould shoot equal to a revolver. I was veny careful how I used it, for I didn't want mother to know that I had it. I used to shoot at stray dogs and cats, though it did make me feel bad sometimes, to hear 'em howl if I hit 'em. 1 used to shoot at the knot-hole in the barn-door, too, to tee how many times in twenty I could shoot in. It wasn't much fun when we had to keep out of tho way all the time. One day I was wandering about the lower end of the garden with my shooter. There were plenty of birds a'l around, but I did not want to shoot at them, if I could find anything else to shoot at I got over the fence into an other lot, but still there were birds everywhere. I shot a few times, just to frighten them a little. Then I heard one singing beautifully right over my head. I couldn't see it very plainly, and I don't believe I meant to hit it at all, and I tell you I was frightened when it came falling right down at my feet with a sad kind of a little scream. I picked it up and tried to make it fly, or walk, but it would not its pretty eyes were half shut, and it kept panting with its bill. It was a bluebird. 1 knew I could never keep ii from mother, for when I have been doing anything dreadful, I always feel as If 1 was lost till I've been and told her. As I carried the poor bird through the garden, a drop of blood fell from its month, right on to a great white lily that seemed looking up to ask me what 1 had been doing. Mother was stand ing near the back piazza; as I laid tin; bird in her hand, it stopped panting and was still. Mother said: "What's the matter?" But there was such a lump in my throat I couldn't speak a word. Then she saw the shooter in my hand, and " Did yon kill that little birdV I tell you it scared me, the way she spoke. I never heard her speak in such an awful voice before. Then she said: "You have stolen away its little life it was all the life it had. The Lord loves His helpless little creatures; He gave ihem to us to make us happy, and lie will never bless those who are cruel to them." Then she put the little bird up to her cheek, and I saw the tears come. She took the shooter and laid it on the kitchen fire. I didn't get any ten cents this time, you may be sure, and then she said: " You may go to your room." I'd a great deal rather she'd whipped me than to have to go there and just have to keep thinking. I thought of all the beautiful days of sunshine I had taken away from that poor little bird, and how it would never fly through the air, or sing in the trees, or see the flowers and the grass any more. Ami I wondered if it had a nest and little birds, and what would become of them if it had. And all of a sudden I jumped up, as I thought of the bluebird that had conic to build its nest near us for so many summers. As soon as mother let me out (it wasn't very soon, for she gave me plenty of time to think), I ran to her nest The little birds all held their heads straight up, and opened their big little mouths, so I almost knew their mother hadn' t fed them for some time. I fed them the best I could, and I watched that evening to see if their mother'd come, but she didn't Before I went to bed I got a piece of soft cotton, and covered 'em up. I thought you see. if I took good care of 'em they might live without their moth er. But in the morning only two of them held up their heads to be fed, and before night they were all- dead. So you see I had taken away all the sunshine from them, too. My sisters cried when they knew their little birds and their mother were all dead. I don't think I want another shooter. I don't believe I'll ever see another white lily but what it'll say to roe: "You killed that bluebird V I oath's Compan ion. The Ofoarraphy Trap. " Always be honest boys," said Un cle Nathan to the youngsters. "Don't ever try to cheat at play, at work, or at lessons. M 1 remember well how I tried to cheat my teacher once, and how I came to grief in consequence. " We had a new teacher that term, a Miss Mason; and we were all delighted with the way she beard us recite in geography the first day. No passing the questions arouud the class by turn, but all ao ered in concert. You know it is such fun to schotn-b 3rs and girls t be allowed to make some k n I of i. noise, and we made the old pchool h mse ring. " It was just the same tho next day and the next. There was a large om of us, and we considered that ree l itioii prime fun. "The fourth day of tch 1 cam-; and, as 1 drew out the geography fr in my desk to prepare, my less ui some thing seemed to whisper to mo: 'What's the use of your taking so much pains to learn your lessons when thu class all answer together?

You' can pick up enougli from what you know ot geography, aud what the rest answer, to put in an" occa sional word; and it will do just as well.' "I suspect that imp of mischief went, about and whispered the same in the eavs of the rest of the class; and TOU may conclude so, Uo, before my story is done. 1 am ashamed to toll yon, Ims, that I listened to the evil suggc .lion, and spent the time drawing pictures on my slate, and arranging a jack-kni trade with Ned Whib-, that should have been given to my geography lewson. And withal the geography was a new one that term, aud not one of the class had ever studied it before.

' What onus on the Atlantic coast':1' " Again the small girl answered alotie. " "Once more; and this decidedh in concert,' said Miss Ma on, cmplmt ically. 1 What ones on the Pacitioeoaet. " For the third time Susie answered alone. 'You will now answer by turns, since you cannot seem to answer mi con cert," said Miss Mason; and three more questions wont round the plan, each to be finally answered by Susie. "Miss & asqn laid the geography down on the desk, with a peculiar smile on her face. ' Those of the class who have learned their losson for to-day will please raise their right hands.' Up went ouo little JiamL Susie' k, of course. "Miss Mason looked amused enough to sec how the rest of us had walked into her trap. "'Perhaps you thought,' he said, that, because I had hoard you answer in concert heretofore, 1 should always do the same; but that is ipiite uncertain. I shall never tell you beforehand how you will answer, so the only safe way is to prepare your lesson. Now, I will tell you a little story; ami then I will hear Susie recite the rest of her lesion, while the others take their seats and prepare to recite after school. "Once upon a time, the whole world agreed to meet together and shout all at once, to see what a great noise it would make.
