Made His Start.
A shrewd. young man from Boston
pocketed quite a snug little sum out
of the recent bond sale, and that toto,
without a sindge dollar invested. The i
sharp Bostonian made about X6.000,
with shrewdness aind foresight as his
oily capital; and this is the way he
did it: -
He quietly delved aretind and learn.
ed that the syndicate would bid above
110 for the bonds, sp in order to over
reach their offer he put in a bid fori
$150-000 worth of bonds at 111, aad
the bonds were awarded to him. He
then simply proceeded to di(pot of
his award, getting from 114 to 11i' for
all of them, making a profit of 3 to 4
points on the entire bid, amounting
to a!bout $6.000.
'While contemplating his financial
deal the young man soliloquized thus-.
Vly: That he had as much right 'sl
any other American citizeti to make a
hid. Whether ha vasr bidding for
himself or some one cf was nobody's
'husiness. If his .d: was sufficiently
high to get the nds it was the duty
-of the govermen t to make the award
to him. If he unable to sell the
bonds, there wobl he no way of com
peling hivw to tae eim, as he had
no money nor p pe tyts there the
mnatter would ent ort 'he mere

Our Surplus Corn.
During the meeting of the Loni-ia
na State Agricultural S .ciety at Lafa
:ettt we were iu rnied that corn de
livered on plantationsi n that locality
was selling :at 15 cents per bushel, and
that for lack of markets and storage
gpacitVy tlhouusaids !f bushels of corn
were then in the field unharvested.
On-the train ~oming frsmn Alexandria
t.I afayette.l'also learned from a
traveling saleA~il n that he had on that
morni ug contracted with one merchant
at Alexandria for the delivery at dif
ferent times during the spring season
of 500 barrels of corn meal. to be for
nished by the Little Rock (Ark.)
Milling (Cmnpany, at $1.80 per barrel.
Now, there is something radically
wrong when the farmer, living less
.itan a hu'bdred miles from Alexan
dria, on a line of railroad making dai
lytrip·, has to seil 224 po;unds of corn
!at 60 cenits, and when the Arkansas
man, living hundreds ofmiles away,
realizes thiee times as much for only
200 pounds'of meal"
It seems to me that some enterpris
ing mill man might grind some of that
surplus corn in tume , make good
ineal, sack it i'n fify-pound sacks; put
his name and brand oa the sack, e.nd
guarantee it. Meal put up in that
way, ground frons well selected corn,
furnished fresh. every week or two,
would have no ,rm.hle in holding its
own against thie kiln-dried articles.
This has been t-t, Id in two different
towns in De Si.o parish,.,avith favora
ble results.
Another plan wrfiff ce to secure a
corn-shellitg machine, one that would
shuck,,5hell, fan and sack a thousand
l-Ihels per day (such macbhines can
be purchased at a cost of not over
*250,) attach it. to the gin or grist mill
steam power, and in this way put the
corn in proper condition for shipment
to Europe. Merchants of Lafayette
and other towns along the railroad, it
is your duty to find a market for the
irroluct of the producer. You should
take such steps as will permit that pro
duct to be shipped in merchantable
shape, to the best interest of yourzelves
as well as your culstomers. You now'
provide these advantages for some of
the staple cryvp,-namely: cotton, sug
I ar and rice. Why not assistin finding
i a market for our surplus corn ? -The
