Many things may -ne learned about the
.Pgrbwth of our most common, crops if our
fanners "would devote asmall portion of
their time to the making of experiments. Mr.
E. A. Call of Coffee county, rather by a
happy accident than tby. premediulion, has
ascertained that ' theyield of the common

Mr. Call had been in the habit of sowing
"with his turnips a mall quantity of rye,
''undeptho impression'that if would protect
the young turnips from the ravages of the
fly. In the summer of 1S70, after sowing
his.turnlpSj he recollected .that he had no
rye on the same place and concluded to

They came up, grew rapidly through the

led hlm to sow a Email spot, ex-
sclusively to oats, on the 10th of August,
1871, putting them in the xisnal way. Last
winter, being a very severe one, they were

Mr. Call has placed some specimens of
these oats at the Exposition, -where the
curious and inquiring agriculturist may
learn how best to grow oats. It is very
probable that in a higher latitude the vitali

quest that the experiment be made on a
large scale by our farmers who live below
the line where it is not profitable to .build
GRASS, STOCK AND PROSPERITY.
There are some things it is difficult for
our farmers to learn, and one of these is
that grass and stock pay better than cotton.
A few days since we chanced to pass
through Bowling Green, Ky., and meeting:
with some practical farmers, the conversa
tion turned upon the most profitable crops
to cultivate. From time immemorial the
land about that thriving town has been de
voted to the growing of tobacco. The last
year or two have shown ihe farmers
the folly of pursuing that course, and
they are now growing grasses and fine
stock, dispensing with a good deal
of labor and having more time to attend to
their social and public duties. Since the
inauguration of this new system land has
advanced rapidly in value; new dwellings
are springing up all over the country; fence
rows are clean; neat shrubbery surround
every farm-house, and the people, by ming
ling together, more frequently have caught
a spirit of improvement, and are leading
the way in all these enterprises that mark
the progress of civilized thought. They
are projecting new lines of railway, build
ing parks, establishing schools, lighting
their streets With gas. They have already
erected waterworks that supply their
city with water. They have already built
a Court-house, which is the moit elegant,
the most commodious and the best built to
be found in any country town in the "West.
All these improvements have been recent
ly made, andiaxes have been levied for
that purpose. Yet, notwithstanding the
taxes, land is worth within a radius of five
miles from the Court-house from sixty to
two hundred dollars per acre, and that, too,
wl!j mt having timber enough to enclose it.
Olf every side from College Hill may
be seen rich fields of living green
through which flow some of the
finest water in America. Cattle, horses,
hogs and sheep of the most approved breeds'
may be counted by the hundreds. Fann
ers have ceased to complain of hard limes,
and feel that their complaints "heretofore
have been due in some respects o their im
proper management. Hor does Bowling
Green present the only evidence of this truth.
ho tobacco lands about Bussellville, Ky.,
are comparatively cheap, but stock farms
sell high and are in demand. Messrs. Long
& Briggs,' large stock raisers in that county,
recently sold a small portion of their stock
farm near the county seat for $700 per acre,
and were offered for two hundred
acres the sum of seventy thousand dollars.
Every year this land improves in fertility and
value while it would decrease in both if
used for the growing of tobacco.
And1 what has been said of tobacco may
be said of cotton. The most profitable
farms and the most fertile soils in the Cen
tral Basin of our own State are those upon
which no cotton is grown. The growing of
grass and stock is the road to wealth for
the farmers of Middle and East
Tennessee. More time to the
improvement of the appearance of
our farms should be given. Strangers
are impressed favorably or otherwise with
a country, just in proportion to its degree
of improvement. No farmer who grows
tobacco or cotton extensively, can keep his
farm in good repair. The consequence is
that it ' yearly decreases in value, and
though his income may apparently
be greater at the expiration pf each year,
yet the stock grower witi an equal amount
of land will be the wealthiest at the end of
a decade, and his estate may be
more readily sold. Tho most lordly
agriculturists in America are the stock
raisers about Lexington, and the average
price of laud in that famous locality cannot

Mr. Editor, I regret to have to chronicle
that Sumner is far in the background in the
education of her youth would much rath
er see her emulating-the course of her sis
ter county, Davidson. Doubtless, it is
greatly owing to the. extension of the coun
ty's credit in the contemplated railroads
that are likely to be built through the coun
ty; yet it is not a good precedent. I am
persuaded that the education of the youth
of our land should never bo made of
secondary importance. It is the grand
moving power that insures strong and stable
government- and promotes the dignity and
wellare ot a nation.
At present the farming interest is flatter
ing, the stalwart farmer is buoyant, and
every feature is propitious for an abundant
crop. Wheat is looking well; oats grpwing
finely; corn mostly up, and a good stand;
clover and the other grasses luxuriant, and
the amount of land seeded Uyearly increas
ing twenty percent. Last year's crop of
tobacco all sold at good figures. Miny seed
sown for the new, and great preparations
for a rousing crop in the northern portion
of the county actively prevails. The ladies
are not lagging in the floral department: a
lively interest is taken to revive, adorn and
recall the better days and scenes of youth
when gentle zephyrs, freighted with the
rich exhalations of the many floral walks
and gardens that met our gaze, kissed the
cheeks of a peaceful, happy and prosperous
All kind of fruit trees are ladened with
bloom, and all are delightfully anticipating,

ADDRESS OF HORACE MAYNARD.
Horace Maynard having been invited to
address the Convention, reviewed the
course which the Republican party had
taken since coming into power. He said
that the real issue, in .this, canvass would be
developed when the Democratic Convenr
tlon met In Baltimore and Its action was
known. If it indorsed Greeley then- the
struggle most certainly would be
between Grant -and Greeley
because It was beyond the possibility of
doubt that the Philadelpnla Convention
would renominate Grant. Becoming fa
cetious, he called attention to Ihe fact that,
Judge Davis and Jtfra.JTIctoria C Wood
hull were, too, in the field, as well as Gree
ley, a3 candidates for, the Presidency, and
that If the Democratic party in Convea-
tloir assembled indorsed either of these
nominations, then the struggle would be
between whoever1 they nominated and'
Grant. He reviewed the acts of Congress,
With which the people are only too familiar,
the Kukltrx laws 'and their enforcement, the
National debt, Alabama claims and the
policy of paaaveness. Ho was sure the'
country would come out all right on the
.'clahns question, eulogised Grant as a soldier.
ano a 'statesman, and concluded with a
hopeful view of the Bepublican party; its
strength and great expectations. The speech
was -a long one, during which some of tho
delegates of both colors embraced the-t)p-
porturuty.co lane occasional naps.
The Convention adjourned sine die, at
5:40, with suggested cheers for Grant and
Maynard, that were even then very faintly

Thousands fall a prey to disease, aefcbecaase

fatal, but because they lack the requisite amount
of active vitality to make a vaUast reSKanee to
the enemy. It is a wise precaution to keep tho
body always la -a-state of defeaeez-always pre
pared to "fend off" the germs of epWemlf: and
other disorders, and to bailie Uie evil jaflaesee of
damp mlaama and sudden tberraemetrieal
changes. There is no dlfflecky in tlolng tips. It
is a fact as well authenticated as tbatWo.aad

Is epec lolly adapted to this purpose, ami fer' tba
simple reason that Its Invigorating and regulat
ing properties are superior to those of any otter
medicine in the world. During the twenty years
that it has been in general we, ample opportuni
ties have been afforded to compare its medicinal
properties with those of other preparations claim
ing to be or a similar class, and the result has
been Its adoption by the American peeptetas ?the
standard tonic of the age, its iatredaefilh into
every civilized portion 'of the western, Tiemis

The record upon which its popularity rests is a
curiosity in midlcal literature, for It includes an
almost unlimited variety of human afimes&ad
disabilities. In fact, no other remedy possesses
such a variety of hygienic virtues, and it is to
these characteristics that It owes its prestige a3
