Such is the expression used by
the, City Item in refçriiiijj to the

stupid our article of last week
wherein we drew attention to the
attack made upon a Federal Court,
by the Times-Democrat.
"A country paper" and thank the
Lord for it, if a metropolitan paper
is to be controlled bv every gust of
passion which arises in the excitable
and tumultuous portion of the com

better proof of the advantages which
the country editor, in many ways,
has over his city contemporary,than

It is'extremely difficult to establish

that all person« cultivating rice on plantation«
adjoining other plantations which may be under
cultivation either in cane or corn, or Doth, shall
be requested to make and keep open Une ditch

and keep in good repairs strong and substantial
levees on lands by them cultivated in rice and
along side of said line ditches in order to flood
agamst said levees so as to prevent tho water
used by them from flooding their neighbors
fields. That any person or persons who may
be damaged by rice planters in violation ol the
lore-going ordinances may call upon the Syndic

shall notify said rice planter to comply with the
above ordinances within three days, and upon
his failure so to do shall proceed to close his
rice flumes. That any person who shall at

be fined in the sum of fifty dollars for each of

Chicago morcliautshave the nervo
to advertise, aud it is to this tact
that they are largely indebted for
their success. We give the follow

ago, began business on $50,000 cap

into advertising. To day their sales
are over half a million dollars yearly,

He now has 30U colonies, after loos
ing 40 to 90 in the bad winter ot 1880
81. He made a $4,000 honey crop
in one year, aud has sold $25,000
worth of honey in all, although for
a period of three years he obtained
no honey, from some cause. In 1874,
during the overflow, he extracted 100
lbs, ol honey in three months, one
colony that season giving him 38 gal

epotted east of the Kooky Mount

New York, St. Louis, Cincinnati, and
even Europe, but foreign shipments
did not pay. His example has caused
many others to commence bee cult
