The older touu tie ot Ui Mata in many iusUucts jiud tlieui.-ive with a sparser popula tion than they poteW ten yearn ago, becye the alluvial lands bordering the Mislippi, while they have many disadvantages from which tbis seclioa ia free, have a (oil which now yield abundantly la response to the slightest labor. In the course of time, under the present system, the most fertile toil will be impoverished by the continued demand of the seekers for wealth by "agricultural labor. Thia class plants year after year a Urge area in cotton, crop which demand a strong and suitable soil for ita growth. There, as here, the laborers in ma jority of instances are rucu who think only of to-dav. They do not care to realize the fact that laud which is compelled to grow one crop for ten or twenty years continuously, will rebel like an overworked auluial constitu tion, and refuse to do the work allot ted to it. Nature furnishes aa easy remedy for the evil which is now making itself so plainly apparent. One la a rotation of crops. Another is a proper system of fertilization, and a third method of renewing the prbstine vigor of the soil is to let it lie out or use it for a pasture. The men who started on the rocky lands of New England saw that some thing waa needed to enable the tiller of the soil to gain a remuneration for his labor, and so well did they succeed that each succeeding generation found itself the possessor ot more productive land than Its predecessor. This was due to the care and labor bestowed nnon the soil by its possessor. The father left the sou an heritage of thrift and the son improved upon his legacy, Careful thought and dilligent labor . brought an era of prostterity which will know no limit while the future is thought of. In the South a different method has been cursued. Its soil was regarded a invulnerable to rough treatment in its fertility, aud no means was ever adonted to retain the strcugtn nature bad bestowed, liut a new method will bave to be adopted, or the men wSo now till the land will seek fields where ercatcr tewards await their labor. Anv man who will conscieu tioasly try can increase the value of his soil threefold in ten years. u? them make the effort, and Instead of the comolaint that workmen are oe- eominir scarcer, in a few years men will seek this lection for a pcrmauent home, and a prosperity scarcely noticed from its gradual approach will be ap parent by a comparison wun toe years that have goue beiore. Does Farming ray. f Alliance Journal. It is quite frequently asserted that farming docs uot pay. This we will frankly admit if the avocation is car ried on bv a man who raises cotton to nay for everything. Cotton raising alone don't pay ; this Is not farming. Some people plaut four or five acres in com, fifteen acres in cotton and spend one fourth of their time with It and three fourths in town or riding around over the neighborhood or paying visits from home and then call thcra elves farmers. Our Idea of a farmer is mail who raises his own meat, his own corn, Lis on u mules, has potatoes, corn, sheep, peas and cattle to sell every year. We know of oue termor who has sold this season 200 bushels of corn, $76 worth of swcot potatoes, 2000 pounds of meat, quite a quantity of sheep, wool aud cattle, lie raises cotton as a surplus aud makes money every year. Who can pay $1.25 per bushel for corn aud raise cotton for 7 cents per pound? It is ruiuatlou aud the sooner the farmer finds It out the better. If the farmer will stick to his farm and raise everything at home, boy only what ho can't raise, we pre dict success but bear lu mind be must stick to bis farm aud think about something else besides cotton. We can suggest numbers of things that will pay In addition to the cotton crop. With the exception of a few items there Is nothing a farmer should buy in the provision li no, raise all your eatables aud sell your extra cat tle, sboep and mules, aud low prices for cotton will be a thing of the past. A Few Simple Keclpcs.

The French embassy at Tokio has telegraphed the official details of the attack upon the C'are witcb. From these It appears that the Czarewilch's assailant was a policeman named Thunda, who bad been eight years In the service. The Czarewitch and his suite were leaving Oteu in liurkksbas, having just visited Jiuddbist temple. Both the Czare witch and Prince George went to the shrine with their boots on aud a com plaint was mnde to the Japanese guards about tbis offense against the national rolieiou. The princes were entering the jinrickshas when Thunda, whu was standing guard, dealt the Czrewitcb a blow with his sword. Prince George throw Thunda several foct. The policeman rose and made another rush at the Cr.srcwitch. A Japanese closed the front of the car rings, toother Jayianese wrested the sword from Thunda and cut lilm down, inflicting a severe wound. The chief lionzo, with several guards, arrested t o lean.

Milburn, the noted blind Chaplain of the llouse of Representa tives. It is a story of the triumph of reason and will over body and disease. It is a story which may give any weak man courage. The blind parson told it in a voice as strong as that of boy. His gestures were as forcible and easy as those of an athlete, and from time to time he laughed while telling It with the enthusiastic ba! ha! bal which comes only from perfect lungs, a happy soul, and a good digestion, lie smoked as be told it, and he en joyed his pipe like a veteran tobacco user, bald he : "For fifteen years I waa on of the most fragile of men yon can imagine. I bad to bold a book at the en a ot my nose wiih my hand above to shade the page, and by moving the book contin uously along, I managed, by aeeingone letter at a time, to read and to spell my way -through school and college. The result was that when a very young man I found myself afflicted with curvature of the spine, curvature of the breastbone, and a disease of ths heart, and there seemed absolutely no prospect of my ever becoming a healthy ui-.n. I was also extremely delicate, and when between nineteen and thirty five years old, my weight ranged from 107 to 115 pounds. 1 was working hard, however, all this time, and pay ing attention to ail sorts of things except the laws of health and life. I went to hngland when thirty-four, ana got some hints from there. In those days very little attention was paid to bygieue, aud after returning 1 began to put into practice what I had learned, and ever since that time 1 have in creased in weight, from fifty to sixty pouuds. My weight increased steadily from the time I waa thirty-five, and you will be surprised to know that ibis was done without my ever going Into a gymnasium, or adopting any of the practices which are prescribed forsucn purposes." I asked the noted lawyer, Mr. Latrobe, of Baltimore, who Is very nearly If not quite ninety years of age, aud whose health Is apparently perfect, bis receipt for perpetual youth. Said be : "I attribute my long life to an excellent constitution, aud the only advice 1 would give to young men would be to avoid the use of tobacco. I bave not used it now for twenty-five years, aud I stopped It be cause it was Injuring my health. As to my other habits of life, I bave been rather generous to myself thau other wise. I bave eaten good dinners, and bave given dinners. I dou'l believe generally In the mortification of the fiesb, aud I believe lu enjoying life, as far as possible, as you go aloug.' Ex-Go v.

He served with distinction aa our Minister to St. Petersburg, and he bas bad along career as a member of Congress. He is in good condition now, and he promises to live to be a hundred. Said he: "I owe much to a good constitution. My grandfather died from being thrown from a horse at 106, and my lather lived to be ninety-six. I have bad a stirring life, have seen some sickness, and am now.at seveuty. seven, in perfect physical condition. I bad three or four attacks of the grippe last wlutor, and bave survived tbcm My rule of life is temperance and regu larity. I am blessed with a very small appetite, aud 1 don't know what It Is to be hungry. I have just eaten my supper. It consisted of some bread and milk, and I rarely eat more than this for breakfast. My dinner Is light, aud 1 can go all day without eating aud not notice It I have uo particular rules of diet. I driuk a little good rye whisky every day, and smoke in mod eration. I do not exercise a great deal, aud bave no particular rule of health. I behove that marriage conduces to a long life, because it is in tbo course of nature. At tho closo of the war I was a very sick man. For four years I was constautly within the sound of the clicking of tho telegraph. It was so in tbo Governor's otllce in Harrisburg, aud In the field I carried an operator with mo.

My dot tors told me that a change of climate was all that would save nic, and they setit me to Cuba. I improved as coon as 1 got out of New York, aud I was well in a few mouths. "As to my advioo to young mcii, 1 would say : 'Ho temperate aud regular lu your habits. ' Don't work too bard, and don't worry.
