The ditches are more Key West refugees. danef'rous than In all the preparations to put the city into a good hygenic condition we hear little said of the ditches. They are in good condition now to breed diaea.se. The London Times, which rarely per ceives any good coming out of America, says the Inter-State Commerce law is, in part, responsible for the present depres sion of British trade. The Jacksonville Hoard of Health has ordered a partial quarantine - against Tampa, St. Augustine, Cedar Keys or any point South, and an unconditional quarantine against Key West. After this week the map makers may begin the work of revision, ami Florida's citizens determine in what county they live, liiis Legislature has made all the present maps useless so far as'connty lines go. In the present anxiety about the yel low fever at Key West it is well to re member that the Board of Health there has the confidence of the National health authorities and of the Jackson ville Board of Health. Immediately upon the receipt of the news that a spo radic case of yellow fever had occurred at Key West, Surgeon General Hamilton assured the country of his confidence in the Board of Health there as men of high standing on whose statements re liance might be placed. The Thistle, the Scotch yacht built for the express purpose of contesting for the American Cup, is a rather uncertain ves sel. She wins races on actual time and loses them on time allowances. In a drifting match she comes in first, but given a still breeze and she stands third or fourth when sailing witlT the crack English yachts. If she is so fortunate as to meet with the unual weather when Bhe competes for the America Cup a smooth sea and light flawy winds Bhe may carry of the prize which has been so ably defended by the American yacht men but for once there may be good sailing weather and then she will have been bui't in vain. The Yellow Fe ?er. There was no new cases of yellow fe ver at Key West, yesterday. Of the five new cases reported the day before, one case is out of danger and the others are doing well. The fact that the Plant Line offers to carry jersons to TftmtiA who havA livMtl iaKe Went five - years shows tliat the situation is not re garded as one of very great gravity. A day or two more will show whether the fever at the only infected city of Florida is likely to become epi demic or merely to break out in groups of cases during the summer. The dis ease can hardly tie called epidemic yet, if our reports from Key West are trust worthy, and we believe they are. Theie is no occasion for bidding the State a hurried farewell nor rushing off to the pine woods, and we have reason to think there is little ditqiosition among Palatkans to do either, at present. Let our citizens keep cool, discredit floating rumors, look upon the possibili ties with cheerfulness and clean their premises. Of course, alarmists will always be found, but they must be dis couraged. ir they are allowed to pro duce a needless panic the result will be a prolongation of the dull season and we may even earn the contempt of other sections of the State by exhibiting anything like fear so early as this. The best protection of our fam ilies from the dread monster lies in cleanliness. This should begin with the cleaning of the public thoroughfares and their ditches. Private citizens can lie better induced to co-ojierate in the work by cleaning up their premises when they see the city doing its share. Such meas ures would lie nnire effective than prose cutions for failing to carry out sanitary measures, aitnougn thone who prove themselves public enemies by refusing to disinfect and remove or burn all mat ter dangerous to health should lie prose cuted. It is doubtful if there are any private grounds in Palatka. any liack yards or private drains in a condi tion so dangerous to the general health as the public ditches. Unless work is begun at once in remedying the foul condition of the ditches it is still idle to cleanup the premises of the citizens. The two reforms should go hand in hand. The city Taunt le cleaned thoroughlj-. am while we should nt hesitate to join condemnation of any private citizen who should fail to purify his surroundings, we cannot hold him more guilty than the municipal authorities if they fail to do their part.

Editorial I ttrronmnilf nrt of the Palatka X'tcm. Tallauasse, Fla., June 1. Three miles out from Tallahassee lies the stock farm of Capt. W. I. Vason. The owner is not a millionaire who keejw fine stock to gratify a taste capa ble of finding compensation in the grati fication of iiis love for the beautiful he is a plain man like the rest of us who turns to cattle as a legitimate investment and has brought up his herd by careful management from a small and poor beginning, till each individual mem ber possesses in form and feature, tem per and adaption to purpose tliat perfec tion which is to the owner, as to Keats, "a joy forever." With Judge Wigg, of Palatka, the writer rode out to the Vason farm to in terview some of the nobility which our worthy contemporary, the KluridiaH, has made famous. Judge Wigg is a connoisseur when it comes to cows and butter and milk, so we insisted on his company that intelligent crit icism might keep ignorant enthu siasm, prone to tie too appreciative, within bounds. It was a lovely morn ing, and sunlight and shadow rested on the long undulations in a manner which eyes accustomed to the flat counties found most refreshing. The dark green symmetry and bright promise of the or ange grove was alisent, and our gleam ing waters lend ntine of their diversity to the landscape immediately around this city. But we saw fields of cotton and corn oats already cut sliowed in "shocks aliout the fields the pear or chards upreared their sharp pyramids to a blue sky, in which fleecy clouds lazily floated, and our horses tossed their )ieads eagerly in the brisk morning air. The pasture luhds lay warm in the sun, and fat cattle stood about in groujis or lay thoughtfully under the magnificent oaks which dot the bIojh-s with undulating masses of deep shade. Through all this we swept by a deep sunken road to the homestead of Capt Vason. Here we passed through masses of flowering shrubs bordering broad. white walks fieaches reddened in the sun lorn; trellises shrouded in grape vines lay on tire left strawberries gleamed from beds of glossy green leaves and pots of beautiful ferns show ed themselves on the long piazza which has always been a typical feature of Southern liomes. The captain was at the capitol hard at work, but his kind lady and lovely (laughters made us at home with warm-hearted hospitality and. at our reouest. walked with us to see the stock of which all Florida is proud. At the dairy we each took a long draught of buttermilk freh from a churn as sweet as any flower that blows, wherein masses of rosy butter still Btood to mark the interruption our visit had caused. We passed on to a green hit where creatures too beautiful to be call ed calves stood around a well in which an "old oaken bucket" lay one hundred feet deep in water clear as ice and near ly as cw)l. The deer-like little creatures rubbed their noses against our hands like dogs, their symmetrical bodies, del icate legs and necks, lovely color and deep, soft eyes showed them worthy of birthright in the island which has given to an English court a reigning belle. We have laughed at Homer for calling a heavenly beauty "ox-eyed standing in this presence we acknowl edged that the old vagabond had been truly appreciative and we glanced into others orbs, liquid and deep, for con firmation strong as holy writ. Even our dull soul warmed as each little ras cal came up for a caress and we grew jealous till the battle scarred old lawyer at our side gave expression to the feel ings of Uith when he "wished he was again a calf. From these we passed on to see the mothers worthy of such children jind soon found ourselves standing under a great ive-oak, while a herd of twenty Jerseys came up to honor us with their acquaint ance. With no hesitation and in loving confidence they stood around us, and awakened admiration as lively as was ever felt in a bull room crowded with lieauties. more brilliantly adorned, but not more delicately fashioned, moie sweet in temper or of more graceful car nage. -Mo monarch ever looked more regal tlian the oroud king of the herd. and no friends could have been more mietly inquisitive than were these beasts, whose pedigrees stretch back through long years, to end in neither robber chief nor bloody soldier, but all whoso vie tor its are those of eace, Around us stood flowers of every hue and some heifers were evidently of the opinion tliat our blooming young liostess. habited in a dress of delicate rosy hue. crowned by a fair face and masses of blonde hair, was also "good to eat. But this desire yielded to slight remon strance, and Mrs. Vason talked learnedly to Judge Wigg on names and pedigrees. and milk and butter and Hue ribbons won at fairs, to which we gave slight heed because we lacked comprehension. For the writer of this is no "cowboy but he can appreciate beauty in bird or fish, blue sky anil deep forest, dog or horse or cow, and recognize all as but ports of the whole, which finds fullest embodiment in that lovely woman who is the crown of all nature fashioned by liod himself. Therefore for fuller de tails, which we cannot give, our readers are referred to other sources, but these Jersey cattle are valuable as ornaments to a gentleman's grounds as well most utilitarian in, their capacity for making contributions to the dairy. Many valuable animals have been imported from Tennessee for our section, within the recent past, which have failed under the process of accli matization. Here are animals as fine born in our State with pedigree good and record for milking qualities unsurpassed, to which the attention of our citizens is earnestly directed. Many heifers and calves can be found, here, which would do honor to any State, ami they are alreatig acrlimatttl. Besides, the trip is much shortened and they would reach Palatka in better condi tion than is usual after a long railroad pas sage from Tennessee or Kentucky. These considerations should influence even those who feel no State pride in such herd as that of Capt. Vason, and when we consider that the Quality is of the best and the price much more favorable there should be no hesitation in giving the preference to a Florida enterprise whose success is entirely assured. Many of these calves and cows are already in bomb Honda and the number is con tinually increasing to the great satisfac tion of the purchasers. One beautiful young heifer with a pedigree long as my arm has just been liought by the Hon. T. E. Saxon, member from nernando County. Harbison. Rice Culture. N. O. Times-Democrat. Mr. Oeorge W. Lee, of Grand Prairie, ., whose marked success in rice cul ture has gained him the credit of pos sessing some secret method unknown to his neighliors, tells the LaSalle Agricul tural Society, of Plaquemines Parish. 1m w to grow rice: 1. The held should Ik? projierly laid off in squares and ditched, with a view to easy and uniform inundation. r.very farm of hrtv acres or less should have a large and deep irrigating ditch connected with the river by a well constructed flume, set deep enough through the levee so that there will be no olxt ruction to a free and pleiitiful flow of water at every decline of the river. Nearly all the marsh lands on the lower coast can lie inundated when the river is three feet above low water mark. Irrigating ditches should also lie sup plied with small flumes, at intei vals of from 300 to 40O feet, for the puriiose of checking and coiitroling the water at the will of the farmer. As ti e average de clivity of our land is aliout four inches to the acre, cruets ditches should not lie farther apart than 100 to 150 feet, the former is the better rule, with the levees always in the rear of the declivitous side. By this means you can secure a more even and complete submersion. These ditches, as well as all others per taining to a rice Held, should lie cleaned out in the fall as soon after harvesting as possible. Too many defer this iic,or tant work until the time they should start to plow; this is one of the chief causes why we often cannot plow our lands. Plowing should follow immediately after ditching, so that the bind can lie ex posed to the frost and sunshine as long as possible. It is needless to say good Plowing and harrowing constitute one oi Hie mottt essential oraiicries oi laoor irr taining to a rice field, as. unlike other crops, there is only one time in a season that it can lie done. The iiroiier fwasoii for sowing is from April 1 until Slav 10, although I have sown as late as May 25 and obtained good results. Mr. Lee also suggests I that owing to the uncertainty of the stage of the river. and storms which prevail at certain sea sons, that farmers sow all their crops in April. He also deprecates thin seeding too many adhering to the reprehensible practice of sowing eighty-one pounds of ueedjier acre, when 100 to lJO jxnind.s should In. the rule, the latter deiiemling upon the season. If the stand is t hi thick it can lie thinned out by properly immersing the young plant. SEED. Too much attention cannot be liaid to the quality of seed sown: farmers should always sel-ct their sesl from their ear liest growth lor the ensuing year, and i would reoommend that thev change s-ed every two or three years: seed sown too Ion if on the same ground win naturally degenerate. In order to keep supplied with good seed at little cost, farmers should every two years buy a few barrels of clioice imported seed ami sow on clean land they will find it will more than pav their pains and exiiense. II costs no more io raise a crop of choice white rice than it does one of inferior red.

I think it necessary that the water be occasionally turned off the ground for two or three days at the time, in order that the plant can strengthen. There is a mistake. I think, too prevalent in keeping a body of wa ter banked up in the squares until the river refuses the suplying. HARVESTING. Just when is the proper tune to har vest is another subject nearly every one have their little tieculinr ideas about. Many recommend that cutting should lie tlone when rice is a little green, contending that it makes the bean farmer to stand the process of the mill. They do not seem to lie aware of the fact that if also makes the stem tougher to resist the process of the thresher. My method is to cut as soon as the grain is thoroughly matured; then let it be done as quick as possible, inside of a week if weather permits. Immature rice, as well as everything else, is unprofitable to the farmer as well as the pun-baser. Can rice lie raised profitably at f ' J..MJ tier liarrel? is the problem now puzzling the minds of the farmers as well as the mercliants. I have no doiiM rice can be raised at a small profit at $2.50 ier barrel. But there must be a radical change from the old system, both on the part of the farmer and the merchant. Farmers must do more work themselves and hire less. Mr. Lee corcluded his essay with good advice to farmers in the management of their land, stating that the proprietor, with the aid of one hired man, could easily manage a forty-acre farm until harvest. When, by skilful management. the yield should be at least fifteen bar rels iier acre, depending somewhat upon the season. He also advocates the alioli- tion of the task system, paying liands $1 for four or five hours work; recom mends that landlords lie more moderate in their rents, as they often claim one fourth share of the crop, which is extor tion; that mercliants be more scrupulous in their dealings, anil reduce their per centage to suit the times, saying that it was not uncommon to charge 10 fier cent for the use of money for two months, and a larger jiercentlige on pro visions. If this is the case, and we have no doubt tliat the charge can lie fully sub stantiated, we do not wonder tliat the poorer classes of rice growers are kept in a chronic state of poverty. In fact, one instance came to our notice where a poor, but honest and industrious rice ilanter, had occasion to use a couple of tundred dollars to assist him in making his crop of fifty acres, atually uid 125 per cent premium in interest and extra profits on provisions. We do not wonder that an average man. under circumstances like the above, should always be in delt. The only mystery is how he succeeded in keeping himself and from starvation.
