PLANT IIOttE COKX.
Ileal Facts for the Farmer ConsMcr. to While Southern fanners are sit tiiv around the tiro tbese niklwin teAlavs discussing their" planting, they should read and earnestly con giuer the following gnod advice which the Baltimcrp Manufactur ers' Record gives: The total production of corn in the Uni'ed Slates in 1S94 was 1,212,000,000 bushels, a decrease of 400,000,000 bnshels as compared Tvith 1893, and a decrease of 850, 000,000 bushels as compared with 1S01. Fortunately the South had a large crop this year, or otherwise it would have had to purchase its corn at a very high figure, because of this great shortage. As the av erage crop of the United States for some years has been about l,7o0,000 bushels, the production of the last two years is over 500, 000,000 bushels short of the aver age, the country will therefore enter upon the next C'-op year with a verv .sir.all stock of corn on hand . so " small indeed, that even should we have another 2,000, 000,000 bushel crop, as in 1891 , it would require all of its ononnous vicld to make up for the deficiency of the last two years. Even should a crop like this be produced, prices would probably still be higher, be causo of the decrease in 1894. Another small crop following the one of last year, would necessarily mean exorbitant prices for corn. Because of thest facts it becomes more imperative than ever before that the South should increase its corn acreage this year. The South's large crop last year wai due more to a heavy yield per acre than to a large increase in acreage. If this section is to main tain its independence of the West so far as corn is concerned, every effort should be made to urge upon tne farmers the importance of planting a larger acreage this year than ever before. With a big corn crop the South is better prepared to stand low prced cotton than it could in any other way. ! hnv lTThil? ' , Delta Advaucc We have been reliably informed that II. E.

AYEH & CO., LOWELL, MASS, gj ooooooooooccoooeooooooos Mississippi Penitentiary. Jackson, Miss., Feb. 2. The grand jury made its report to Judge Chrisman and adjourned. The sleeping apartments of the peni tentiary were found in good condi tion, but the jury suggests that the warden, Mr. L Jenkins, give more attention to the preparation of the food. Several disners were ex amined and found to consist of bread made from unsifted meal, potatoes boiled in clear water, and collards or cabbage stringy and half cooked. No meat in any form was found in the dinners examined. ' Numerous complaints were made by prisoners of not having enough to Cat, end that thev have had no tobacco for six weeks. The jury s'ates the reasons given are that the prisoners are not at work. In an interview jenkins denies all the principal part of the repo'-r. Hp pays forty pounds of pork are is sued daily to the 1G0 men not at work, besides seventy pounds ol beans and all the molasses, sweet potatoes and cabbage they can eat; that the cabbage is boiled with the pork, and that the potatoes, ten bushels, are steamed because there are no facilities for baking that quantity. He states that nothing but the best food is used: that the meal is not boited because the mill has no bolter, but states that it is sifted and properly cooked, and that prisoners are without tobacco because the contractor is behind with bis delivery, but the same is daily expeoted. lie complains that the grand jury based its re port on what the prisoners stated, and asked for no information from any of the oilicers. As evidence of good treatment he cites that the men weigh from ten to.tnenty-tive pounds more than when rcceiveu. Illinois nhtul i 3 lieducod Kates to the MA11DI GRAS.
