Which Pays The Best.
N,twithstanding the adaptability of
this section to the raising of fine stock
those engaged in this branch of
industry can be counted. Its costs but
little more to feed and take proper care
4,i blooded stock than it domes for scrub,
so sys a gentleman wht has experience
in the matter.
But, due to free grazing grounds, where
stock is permitted to roam and multiply
without any care whatever, has tended,
in a large measure, to draw attention
away from the profits that would accrue
I,y raLiung fime stork.
These ope.U prairie lands will be taken
up, sooner or later, thus compelling those
who depend on them for their stock, to
s'ek other modes, and when this day
comes, there cnn be hut doubt that the
business will receive that notice necessa
ry to make it renumerative.
A gentleman who has been raising
llooded stock for the past few years, told
us. that he is perfectly satisfied with his
veuture, and was only sorry that he had
not commenced earlier. Lot onr farmers
reflect on this.
A Worthy Man.
There is a colored man living on a
farm owned and paid for by him, situated
a few miles west of this town, whose in
dustry has been well recompensed. Af
ter the war this man had not a thing to
his name. He went to work with ,cm
mendable energy and to-day he has a
good home. To reach his present posi
tion in life, required strenuous efforts
and many obstacles had to be overcome.
bu:t a strong will and persistency he has
mucceeded. When last seen, (by a friend
who communicates these facts to us) he
had on a suit of clothes, spun and made
by his wife from wool and cotton that he
raised. His underclothing was made at
home, from cotton grown in his field.
Everything that he eats, with but few
exceptions, is raised on his farm. He
has cattle, horses, hogs, chickens, etc.,
and his cotton crop is the money crop,
not depending on it for the necessaries of
life. This year he has realized a nice
sum from his cotton cultivated and
raised by himself and a boy. Hle has all
the corn and potatoes that he needs. Is
it necessary to add that himself and fam
ily live contented and happy? This man's
name is Joseph Grange.
A Moss Factory.
The report is current and generally ac
cepted as true that we are to have a
mos factory in town. It appears that
arrangements are being made for the ma
chinery and appurtenances and that it
will soon be in operation. An enterprise
of this kind ought topay. Green moss
can be gathered, near here, at a small
outlay and we don't believe the cost
would be heavy to convert it into fine
marketable moms. There is a mom fac
tory in Morgan City and if we hear is so,
those who put it up have had no cause to
regret the investment.
We would like to see this factory eree
tel. for, as the Picayune says. "the day is 1
past if ever there was such a time when t
Jhe mere business of buying and selling 1

There are no reasons why the getting
out of oak staves should not be made a
profitable industry here. In the vicinity
of Lake Catahoula are any. number of
gray oaks which would split well and
could be worked into staves at very little
cost and labor. The prices as will be
seen are fair and there is always a de
mand to supply.

The scene between Edmunds and Blaine

lustrates the manly dignity of Senator
Edlmnnds of Vermont to great advant-.ae
Mr. Blaine exhibited that petty p 'rso. ii
feeling which he has manifested in I is
treatment of all political opponents. I1 to
two met in the presence of attendants on
the honored dead, with conventiol:n
courtesy. Mr. Edmunds extended his
hand and Mr. Blaine refused it turund
his back and left the house without
lookhling upon the body of the ex-Preti

told Mr. Blaine he had made a great mis.
