The mosquito is a suspicious

inclined to do so, go like the old

your gossip to the high grass.—

IMPORTED LAHOR.
Cotton planters in Mississippi will
aw ait with keen interest, tho result of
the investigation of the foreign labor
problem by Charles Scott, of llolivar
county, who is now en route to Eu
rope for the purpose of making care
ful inquiry into the feasability of
importing foreigners for work on the
delta plantations.
Mr. Scott is one of the foremost
planters of the South, raising more
cotton each year than any man in
the Slate, and has met with remark
able success in the business, his dis
play of cotton having taken the
world's prize at the Louisiana
chase exposition. He is thoroughly
convinced that the large planters of
the South will have to quit depend
ing on negro labor to produce their
crops, and during his European trip
w.ll endeavor to ascertain what class
of foreigners are best adapted to ag
1 .cultural work.
T hus far nearly all the foreign la
bor that has been brought to the
delta plantations has been from
Northern Italy, and this class has
been found fairly satisfactory, but
Mr. Scott will try to find out if there
are any other clasves of European
labor that will be suitable for the
work. He will make public the
suit of his investigation after
t irniug from Europe.—Jackson Cor.
