Theorize over this) as wc way, the fact remains that organic nitropen is hlower in its action and decidedly less satisfactory, as far aseither immediate or final results are concerned, than are the more readily soluble and immedi ately available chemicalc, as nitrate of Hoda, kuiphate of aiuinonia, etc. In the instance of the experimental farm at Southern I'ines wre thiulc the land is too fresh (humus being already present in excess), hence already too opL'n, loose, mellow and porous, which said "too 1ojs and open'' condition the pea tines would have a tendem'y to exag gerate. I'ossibly, as I'rof. Massey and his very efficient ussistant, Mr. Alex ander Uhodes, are superintending the experiment at that place, these gen tlemen mar be able to throw some light on this question. i'rom the beneficial effects Jof lime upon every plot to which it has been applied, including those plots where pea vines had been turned under, we can not avoid the belief thatour theory aa briefly outlined above is correct, but, if not, we arc open to conviction, and anxious to be put on the right truck.

A toll tint U lllt lirr than t.uino a t out A few years ago a sample of black waxy soli from Hunt county was ex hibit -d at our state fair which illus trates the characterof the soil of which it was a specimen. A hole eight feel deep was dug, leafing a central core eight ftct high. This core was squared and boxed anil :ri tiiis condition Iranv ported to the fair. Two weeks before the lair oicr:cd, mi" side was opened, put in condition, and w heat sown from one to end the other, and during the fair was some four or live inches high. That grow iug on the soil takcu from a depth 1. f eight feet was as thrifty as that at thtt opposite or surface end of the shaft. In fact, the wheat was equally good from one end to the other. We would like to know what procesa of cultivation would exhaust sm h soil in say 1, (HO years" The black waxy has been analyzed and shown to contain all the elements of fertility in abundaneecxi'ept phosphoric acid, and yet the application of phosphoric fer tilize -." do no goo I whatever, showing that the phosphates ar.t there and eluded the te.ts of the chemists. Tex as has 4.'. 000 square miles of that soil, some not so deep, and thousands til neres of it not yet put in cul tivation. This is thu kind of soil whereon one crop can often be grown that will sell for the market value of the land. A .'.nO-pound bale of cotton is often made tin a single acre, which w ith lint and s -"d is worth, at present low prices. Sin. The land enn be broi ght for a less price per acre. The same may be said of our river bot torn lands, which arc much deeper. and often eld two bales per acre and can not be worn out. ii'W.U id acres of such 1 here are US, land in i e.v.11. , 1 Xovv please tell us where there is it state or country presenting similar ( vantages to fanners?

If there is any profit at all it is from c iws which are well bred and well fed. and it is folly to try to run herd of milkers on any other basis. Like the early spring chicken, the early fall chicken ia the most desir able. It has the longest growing season, and so gets in the best condi tion to stand the cold season and to reach early maturity. If there is one subject above all others that needs attention just now it is that of honey adultrration. We must have a national pure food law enacte 1 pretty soon, or the business of pure honey production will be ruined forever. Florida can raise better pineapples than atiy country in the world. She is doing it every year. This branch of horticulture is becoming a great in dustry in Florida,and there is practical ly no limit to it, The poultry house should b cleaned at least once a week, and in hot summer weather twice a w eek is not too often. If dust has been saved for the purpose, sprinkle well witn it after cleaning. Kerosene on roosting poles is also good to drive .".way insect pests. While the honey bee is a free rover, going in search of honey wherever there may be a chance of finding it, not caring for metes and bounds, the man who contemplates beginning bee-keeping will do wisely if he looks over the ground before investing. A hog should never die until nil time comes. The best protection is cleanliness and plenty of wholesome food, in suitable variety.

"The children are noisy fioin the moment they get up in the morning, plunging and tearing about the bouse, qitiet, perhaps, at breakfast, or it may la noisy then, and joyously riotous un til i. is time to start for school. In stant with their departure a quiet that lit first scents strange settles down upon the house.

She works away in peaceful quiet until nearly noon, mid then she begins to get ready for the children again, who conic homent noon for their luncheon. "There's a jolly noise later at the noonday meal, and then they're off again and quiet reigns iu the house once more, till the children come home from school in the ufternoon. "In providing schools it may he that it is no part of the state's design to give mothers a chance to do their work, but such, no doubt, is one of the school's actual beneficent results, and this w ill make it clear how the mo.it loving of mothers may view with con llicting emotions the coming of vaca tion time."

LINCOLN'S BID FOR SLAVES. O10 Slt.r- Ksplo'led hy the Sole Mur. vlviir ut Uavla CnMiiet. John II. lleagan, of Austin, Tex., sole ninivor of the Davis cabinet, the other day furnished his statement regarding the report so generally current that ,1'resiilent Lincoln proposed at the Ilumptou Ponds conference that the I'nited States would pay .ri 'ii.M.O.oiu) for the southern slaves if the confed erates would abandon the war aud re turn to the union. .ludge pciigau recites that ill his ad dress at the confederate reunion at .Nashville he asserted most positively that no sin Ii offer in any form was ever made. This statement was criticised as an error by a writer ill the Nashville American, who quoted what purHirts to have been a conversation between President Lincoln mid Alexander 11. Stephens, in which Mr. Lincoln is rep resented 11 s saying that he would be w illiug to be taxed to remunerate south ern people for theirshives, that he knew some who were in favor of au appro priation us high as $luli,tihO,i)o( for the purpose, if the war should cease ivitb- Mit further expense; but that, while he individually favored the government paying a fair indemnity to the owners, he could give no assurance or m.-ikc any stipulation in the matter. To put this plainly, Judge Pcapiin says, Mr. Lincoln's suggestion was for the confederacy to nhnndnu its cause find free the slaves as a condition prece dent, und trust to euiiircss forcompen s.'ition. lie cites various historic au thorities to show that, with the views rxpressi'd by Mr. Lincoln in conversa tion and in his iiiesiiges, he could not have offered f40(i,(iuo, 1 for the slaves, nor have said to Mr. Stephens, as has been further Mated: "Allow me to write union lit the bottom of ,1 sheet of paper, and yo;i write whatever tf runs )ou please above it." Mr. Stephens never said such nn offer was made, according to .ludge llcagan, who contends that iu the Hampton lloads conference it was understood, as romiug from President Litnoln, that the only terms which could he allowed w ere the unconditional surrender of the confederacy, und that whatever conse quences followed, restoration of au thority must be accepted.
