JUSTICE TO ALL VOLMK I. ST. -ARTIsV ILLZ., LA., MARC 0h. 1o96. - m 4. Our Mite. This is about the time of year that the press and the fanner feel themnselves drawn together by mautual admiration. and are as thick as Ibed-lhgs in a boar dilng house. The former plrofuse in its advice anld the latter charge in its nc e ,ptamne. Hence. the Mes=enger, though no bigger than a Inatnttn, feels its Im portance as much as the next one, vo lunteers this uºsolleited counsel : *nlmprimis.'" (this stands for firstly,) sezlse upon everything that will aid your work and advance your industries. Secondly, dont cultivate your lands with a view to get the amost out of them without any reference to the future, on ly to awake some fue morning to And you are retrograding; but fertilize Intel ligently to keep them in the highest state of fertility for all time. Thirdly, the old ruts are worn out new ideas and methods must be adopted. Fourthly, better tillage is necessary. Fifthly and lastly, learn the economies of the fanrm. With this, you have the whole secret of successful farming as demonstrated by Mr. Turutan and others. We don't charge anything for this advice, but if you think it is worth the price of a years subscription to this paper, we shall be pleased to Inscribe your name in our book. We have. in our note book seve ral little gems similar to the above, that we will give away during the current _ear. Pluck and Animilation only Weeded. It is not more foolish to expect a four wheeled vehicle to glide aler smoothly on three wheels than It is to expeet aeom muiaty tdollow in the wake of progres when a eoterie of its people are ready at all times, toerydown or belittle all worthy egorts made to place t in the line of prosperity. This unasmimilative spint ofe whieh, we are to my, evidence is seen right here -have but a partial coneep tion of ievic pride, has tendered to des troy the germs of prosperity In more than one town. It Snot, as has been un told times demonsrated, the location of a community that makes its prosperity. buiti is the pluk and pride of the people living therein that make things hum. We must-to slightly paraphrase the views of an exchange-either rn a town with vim or expect a general "doat-care a-darn" all along the line. Run the town for all it is worth, get up steam and keep t up, or let nature take its eorse. Do you want a prosperous town ? Then do away, bury from sight all jealooees, all spite : work for a common prosperity and mutual benefit and before many days have gone down in the gulp of time you will be surprised at the results.

It as the duly of every good eltIen to vote at that election ; and before deposi tiug his ,allot, to inforam himself what measures aud men he ought as a geod ci tiaes to support While party polities should aet aeter into the choice of g od men, we very umeh fear tht smeh will ibe t aei at east onoeside. Bat, we avlsee .e, it th party with which yeou aflate.4d not nominate good men, it is your besaden dtty, if yeo value the general wee, end wish to et an example of true mhMie spirit lo vote against mesh.
