OUR GIRLS And How to Educate Them. A Timely Article on the Subject of Fe male Education. The following article we take from Our Monthly, a very neat little publi cation the organ of the Henderson Fe male College : A father who can see his blue-eyed, flaxen-haired girl around his hearth stone and table or the dark eyes and sweet smileof a child, the counterpart of her dear mother and have no de sire earnest desire to sec all that's beautiful and true and good cultivated and strengthened in her young heart and life, is justly an object of pity. The future home and happiness of that young life is very largely to be deter mined now. What shall we do for our girls? What is the wisest plan to pur sue as they grow up around us? Jesus Christ, the Son of God in his memo rable "Sermon on the Mount," asks this question : "Is not the life more than meal and the body than raiment?" as if He should say, have you been ,-rPitPfl merelv to eat and to wear? How pointed then is his rebuke to those parents, who have encouraged their girls to believe that mere temporal comforts, personal beauty, elegant and costly attire, were the elements that made a true and beautiful woman. One fully given up to such a life is little more than a caricature on "God's last best gift to man." In contrast Earth presents no sweeter sight than a woman of noble, but modest bearing, cultured in mind and manners, pure in heart, careful of the tender amenities of life, patient in suffering, firm as a rock in character, true to the connu bial vows taken at the altar, and walk ing hand in hand with the one manly object of her woman's heart. Is it not the part then of wisdom, is it not our boandea duty, daily to strive by precept and example to cultivate these beautiful graces in our daughters? Learn them to have their homes like sunshine to all who cross its por tals, patient and gentle with the little ones, tender arid dutiful to dear old parents. Scott says : "If there be a human tear, From passion's dross refined and clear, - A tear so limpid and so meek, It would not stain an angel's cheek, Tis that which pious fathers shed, Upon a dutious daughter's head." WTe must educate them. Never in all the history of the world was such a wide and lively interest felt in the ed ucation of women. It is phenomenal. Good men, men of high and noble impulses, pure in life and heart should be called to this great Vork, for what work is greater? All over this broad land, Institutes are going up for the better education of women. I think the first regularly chartered female col lege in this country, or in any other country, was established in Macon,Ga., in iSiq. Now we count them by hun dreds. Towns and cities are not com plete in their appointments, until this crowning jewel is added to great churches, warehouses, factories, and stores. Says the late accomplished Bishop Pierce of Georgia, in speaking of this matter: "The rage for female education in Georgia is a phenomenon, an anomaly, almost a mania. It is strange, won derful, well-nigh unaccountable. Re garded as a great social fact in the pro gress of the times and the people, it has no parallel in the past. History records no such movement. The old est civilization of the Old World fur nished no such development. Poetry, romance, chivalry, never dreamed of such devotion to woman. It is a mon umental fact, the acknowledged me morial of tardy justice, and the sig nificant index of popular conviction and purpose. A peculiar public spirit has been awakened ; parental ambition has been roused. Village vies with village, city with city ; the State is adorned with buildings, all beautiful, some magnifi cent. Decayed towns are revived, and this empire commonwealth is made the glory of her citizens and the wonder of her neighbors. Eastern, Middle, Western, Northern, and Southern Geor gia are well supplied with these instru mentalities of education. A "female college' ' has come to be the index of progress in the line of social advance ment ; the exponent of civilization, the front banner in the march of mind; the central diamond in the diadem of that wondrous age. we glorify as the nine teenth century. As a stone cast into the bosom of the sleeping waters agi tates them to their utmost boundaries, so the refluent waves of the movement in Macon seventeen years ago are sweep iniz out in circles wider and wider still, Already the undulations are beating at " ... tne uase 01 your iannest mountains, rolling: unchecked over your southern plains on, still on, knowing neither weariness nor rest. Who shall, who would stay the tide? Albeit, we know not whereunto this thing may grow, who fears the consequences ? LeJ it alone ; there is healing in its wave. It is waking the pulse of vitality in the stagnation of ages. It is pouring its crystal waters into the old Dead Sea of ignorance and prejudice, on whose blasted shores no flower could blooiti, and whose only fruit was but bitterness and ashes. Let it alone ; it is bearing upon its bosom the intellectual fortunes of unnumbered families, and is freight ed with blessings for thousands more. This extraordinary development, nowever peculiar in some of its phases, is yet explicable on the most obvious principlesof the human mind. Through long centuries and in every land woman has been strangely underrated as to her intellect, her influent e on mind, char acter, society, and government. Even in Christian countries, where juster views of her individual claims prevail, she has been appropriated and con fined to a sphere of action which, al though legitimate to her s-x and her rplntinn. nevertheless circumscribe and forestalls the powers capable of nobler deeds and more useful expan sion. The opinion which restricts woman to the kitchen and the nursery, or which brings her forth on gala days davs of ceremony and festal glad ness, iust as we gather flowers to wreathe an arch or gariana a Dnuai-uuii icauna from a radical misconception of wo man's nature, of God's design, and of the world's social interest. Indeed, all the exclusive and restrictive theories of society and education which do not re cognize woman as an intellectual help meet for man affiliate with the Asiatic barbarism which cloisters her when at home and veils her when she walks abroad But "Time, which overthrows the illusions of opinion and establishes the decisions of nature," has been working out a revolution of sentiment, which, in the progress of knowledge and Christianity, will achieve and vin dicate a new order of things. Like all other revolutions, it has its foes and its defeats, its rapid triumphs and its sud den arrests. But, from the day in which it was graciously conceded that women had souls at all, the world's opinion has been approximating the truth ; and, as the light brightens around it, it is correcting its former estimates, and providing for them more liberal arrangements. Now when a great truth long hidden bursts npon the human mind it startles, electrifies, impels. Forcing itself upon our con victions, in the light of its own demon stration, we wonder that what is so plain was not seen before, and, morti fied by the disclosure of our stupidity, we make haste to rep lir the damages of our delinquency. The sense of in justice made palpable to our under standing, and intensified by the noblest feelings of our nature, suggests the idea of atonement ; and we labor to obliterate the memory of our neglect by heaping kindness on the victims of our error. Such a mood, it is true, is not favorable to a just discrimination, to wise plans; and sometimes it ex hausts itself in well-meant but very in judicious enterprises. Nevertheless, an ill-managed movement, if underlaid by fundamental truth, will rectify in its own defects as experience reveals them and will evolve at last, from its forma tive processes, a well-organized system, symmetrical, efficient and abiding." We have called attention in this arti cle especially to the intellectual wants of young ladies. W e may in future speak of physical, social and moral training. IN MEMORIAM. BY MARIE I.E BARON.

Something for the Tobacco Planter Read and Ponder. to Dan villaf; Register. I As promised" niy letter of the 9th instant, I now submit some views for the relief of the tobacco growers of the country and especially of Virginia and North Carolina. I stated that the country was overstocked with tobacco, and that prices were ruinous to the producer; the evidence in support of this statement has daily accumulated, and the price of all tobacco, except choice selections of bright cutters and smokers, is constantly on the decline. It is claimed by some, that our only hope is to abandon the cultiva tion of tobacco altogether until prices advance. Some sections not adapted to the growth of fine tobacco, were induced by the high prices prevailing a few years ago to abandon their staple crops and grow tobacco. These sections should, and doubtless will, quit it entirely, but we cannot; our climate, and much of our soil will produce no other crop with any hope of profitable return. Tobacco- is our chief reliance, and let come what may we must stick to it. It is our staple crop, we have been brought up to it, and know how to cultivate and handle it. If we will give our time and thoughts to making it fine, and stop making any other kind, we can hold out longer and make more by its cultivation than any other part of the country can, and more than we can make at anything else, but we injure our section and degrade our calling and the standard of excellence of our products, when we allow common tobacco to be raised on our lands, and this we must stop. Some people say it is the season that makes the crop fine or poor. To dis prove this some farmers make fine crops every year. A good season makes it easy and a bad one makes it hnrd to raise fine tobacco. Many of our farmers will take it easy no mat ter what happens, and such people in this as in all other callings often fail. t is only the diligent and unceasing effort that overcomes difficulties and commands success in anything. It might as well be claimed that the skilful mechanic should abandon Ins tmnV "twranse of the competition of the jack-leg, as that the people of this section should stop raising topacco because-the cotton, grain, grrass and stock-raisers have adopted it. It is this latter class that must stop and not we. Therefore we must make greater efforts and use more skill in its culti vation and hold on to tobacco as our chief money crop. . So far so good, says the reader, but - -v ur n !i how is tne renet to comer wen u begins here. Is the farmer of this section willing to pledge himself that tie will transfer his meat-house, corn crib, wheat field and hay ricks from the great northwest to his own farm? Will he agree to plant next year and properly cultivate corn, oats, grass and clover; raise hogs, sheep and cattle enough to supply his own wants and leave him some of each to spare? Will he and his family agree to wear their old clothes, and stop buying every thing except the actual necessaries of life? Will he pledge himself to stop running around to all the country stores within his reach, and to remain at home and attend to his own busi ness until he is able to pay his debts and buy for cash? Moreover, will he agree to plant not more than one-half his usual crop of tobacco, and to select with the greatest possible care the best land he has for growing real fine tobacco, cultivate, cure and handle that in the best possible manner, and by the use of tobacco stalks, straw and forest leaves, to raise at least one-half the manure required for his tobacco crop, and only buy or use one-fourth fhis usual quantity of commercial fertilizers? Now, if the farmers of this section will agree to these con ditions, I feel confident their creditors borth for fertilizers and supplies, will grant them the necessary indulgence to hold their crop of. tobacco made this year, and allow thein to reap the benefit of the advance that will neces sarily follow the planting of a half crop next year. All the farmers ot this section can strip their crop and store it in barns 4, that have good flues, where it can be kept safe and sound until next sum r mer, when there will be an active de mand for it at good prices. By hold inf the new. the old tobacco will find its way into use at prices that will pay the manufacturer and dealer a reason able profit, and the larmer, the man who is entitled to it above all others, will tret the advance on the crop he holds, and the reduction in next year's crop will be a sure guarantee of a good price for that, and in twelve months the immense stock that now threatens our ruin will rapidly disappear, and activity and prosperity will return to all those engaged in growing and dealing in this great staple. Some people may say the creditor will not wait. I say he will. The present crop of tobacco if forced on J- -,ol. ---' r-j 5 L mnVi of it does not now pay transpotation and warehouse charges, and when that is chief reliance for the payment of debts, why should the creditor be illing to aid the debtor in the only way by which he can get his money? When the tobacco is sold for little or nothing, his security and the farmer's reliance to pay are gone. The merchant may say, that by this arrangement his sales will stop and he can make no collections, but he cannot improve his situation by forcing sale of the tobacco, for that will neither sell his goods nor collect his debts, but will ruin his customers and probably himself; therefore he will forbear, because he will know that by the reduction of one-half the crop of tobacco next year, the improvements in quality, and the raising of supplies, with comparatively no increase of liabilities, his debtor will be able to pull through, save himself and pay his debts. To get out of the trouble there must be co-operation, forbear ance, concessions, and mutual pledges between the creditor and the farmer, and the pledges must be carried out in good faith. Some farmers may say, what one said to me a few days ago, that if all agree to put in but a half crop of tobacco, it will be a good time for me to plant a double crop. I told him that such an act would not only be bad faith towards his brother farmers, but might result in disaster to himself, for if he devoted all his energy and capital to making a double crop next year, and for lack of season or any other cause failed, he might find himself much worse off than his neighbor who raised all his supplies and a half crop of fine tobacco, and my observation is that the man who seeks through the pover ty of his neighbor to advance his own fortune is generally the loser in the long run. Some may say the suggestions are impracticable because they cannot be carried out. That all the farmers will not agree to them. I answer, when did all the farmers ever agree in any thing? They never did and most likely never will, but the bulk of them will co-operate and agree on a plan that promises to save them from ruin, and those who do not will surely be the sufferers. No country can prosper long with a prostrate and famishing agriculture. If that is not lifted up every other indus try will finally sink to the same level. Therefore it is the common interest of all conditions and classes of people to aid in restoring this great industry to prosperity. It is idle to suppose that one class of labor can continue to re ceive from two to five dollars per day, while another class work for twenty to fifty cents per day : the one must go up or the other must come down, and and the sooner the country understands this the better it will be for us all. The tobacco craze that took pos session ot the country a few years ago, has well nigh ruined those carried away oy it, ana 11 11 conttnues even one year more, many good old men engaged in farming, who like the man who started to the end of the rainbow to get a bag of gold, dazzled hy the high prices of the fine tobacco of this section, abandoned his old crops and sought his fortune by raising tobacco, will be looking aroudd for his winding sheet. I well remember several years ago, when cotton was high and tobacco low, a number of farmers in tfiis sec tion abandoned tobacco and planted large crops 01 cotton. They knew nothing ot its cultivation, they were not prepared to take care of it, and their lands were unsuited to it, and it took them several years afterwards raising tobacco to make good their losses in cotton. While low grades of tobacco are so very low, fine bright cutters and fillers (of which there is but a small propor tion in the present crop), are very high, and I would advise that this grade be sold as fast as it can be gotten ready market. If the farmers' would farm neighbor hood clubs, where they could meet once a month and talk over matters and take liberally of agricultural and other newspapers and learn what is going on in the world, they would en joy more of life and greatly improve their natural interest. If opportunity offers I may give you another letter on this important sub ject, but enough for the present, W. T. SyTHPHMX. W. M. POWELL & CO. A Prominent Baltimore Firm. Leading Wholesale Grocery House, and the Largest Receivers and Jobbers of Flour in Maryland. One of the largest and best known mercantile houses in Baltimore, is in at of Wm. M. Powell & Co., wholesale grocers. An old established firm, the very name of which is synonymous with all that constitutes solidity of character and reliability in a business concern, W. M. Powell & Co. are known throughout this and the ad joining States and nothing the Gold Leaf may say could add to their reputation or popularity. Extensive wholesale dealers in groceries, and the largest receivers and jobbers of flour in Maryland, they do a large business in North Carolina, being represented by Mr. Thos. F. Hargis, than whom there is no more excellent salesman or clever and popular gentle man on the road. Mr. Hargis is familiar with the trade and knows what his customers want, and to him in large part is due much of the firm's success and the excellent patronage it enjoys throughout the territory traveled by Mr. H. Everybody knows Tom Hargis and eveybody likes him. And every merchant who gives him an order knows it will be promptly and satisfactorily attended to, and that they will always get just what is ordered. The following very interesting men tion of Wm. M. Powell & Co., we find in a late issue of the Baltimorean. It will be read with pleasure by many of the firm's friends and patrons among our readers. It says : Of all the lines of modern trade, there are few, if any, more comprehen sive in the scope, and there is certainly none in which a more universal inter est is felt, very much of the comfort and luxury of the people depending uDon it. The premises of Wm. M. Powell & Co., who now hold the posi tion of one of the chief mediums in this city through which the wholesale grocery trade is done, are situated at South street, Cnew No. 112). It is a most substantial structure, with base ment and five floors. The firm have been as aggressive and enterprising as any house in Baltimore, yet their op erations have been governed by pru dence, no unnecessary risks being as sumed to secure custom, a legitimate trade being preferred to a fictitious reputation for extensive dealing the consequence being that every year has been more successful than those preced infr. and incidental losses have been far below the everage. Briefly stated the business of the house may be de scribed as that ot wholesale grocers and receivers and jobbers of flour, the latter article constituting luiiy 50 per cent, of the whole, in this branch Mr. Powell is an acknowledged expert, and no name is better or more favor ablv known on the Corn and Flour Exchange, of which he is a member, and where he is recognized as an au thority on all matters connected with the trade, his knowledge having been gained by many years' close observa tion and practical experience, bo steady and satisfactory has been the expansion of this department of the business, that the sales in 1883 amount ed to 36,100 barrels, increasing m 1884 to 46,700 barrels, and during the present year the total will be con siderably more than 50,00, these be ing the largest sales of flour of any grocerv house in Baltimore, and larger than those of any flour house in this part of the country. The firm handle the makes of lead ing mills throughout the country among which those of Minneapolis may be mentioned. The principal portion, however, is Ohio flour, and the firm's leading brands, "Best in the "World," and "Winter Patent" are, of "this de scription, another lead ing article jn. the same line being , the Minnesota Patent," pronounced by tte rnbstcottf- petent judges to be one of the best -of all the products of Minnesota wheats These orands can be most unreservedly guaranteed. ... The flour business is a vefy exacting one, and every barrel is carefully ex amined before being received, and the high reputation of the house, upon which it prides itself, for invariably supplying goods of the very finest qual ity and always in good order, has thusj been secured and retained. Baltimore' has become a great centre for the fint grades of flour, these goods being sene appreciative In groceries the firm carry every thing that can possibly be demanded, or that the market may require, includ ing the best qualities of coffees, teas, sugars, butter, the finest brands of New York, factory, creamery and cheddar cheese, from the best manufactured, etc They also deal in canned goods of all kinds, all the brands of family soaps and other domestic requisites. The stucK 01 sununes is very complete, "i ne businesss was established in 1879, under the present title. Mr. Wm. M. Powell was born on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. His early business education was received in a country store, than which no more ef fective school, could be; desired in which to acquire a thorough knowledge of the many details of the business, and more especially for becoming pro ficient in the duties of a salesman. He came to Baltimore in the early days of the war, and connected himself with one of the prominent grocery house until he established the present busi ness, since which he has secured the full confidence of the mercantile com munity, and while attending strictly to his own business, he has been called upon to fill positions of honor and trust, among them being tint of director of the Bank of Commerce. No house is better known throughout the South, and Mr. Powell has become personally acquainted with the great majority of dealers doing business in that extended and ever developing territory.
