The 11hm1 of man has much to do in shaping his actions during his pilgrimage through this troublesome world, regardless ,f the amount of present or expectant mon ey in pocket or stored away in bank. It is a" conceded fact that we appear as our blood makes us, and the purer the blood, the hap pier, healthier, prettier and wiser we are ; hence the oft n-eated interrogatory, "how is your blood 7" With pure streams of life giving fluid coursing through our veins, bounding through our hearts and ploughing through our physical frames, our morals be come better, our constitution stronger, our intellectual faculties more acute and grand er, and men, women and children happier, healthier and more lovely. The unprecedented demand, the unparal leled curative powers, and the unmistakable proof from those of unimpeachable charac ter and integrity, point with an unerring linger to li. 15. B.

The Low Prices and Dullness of Trade A Change Demanded in the Pres- ent System of Farming -The Need of Diversification on the Farm., &c. Danville Register.. Maj. W. T. Sutherlin one of the most intelligent and practical men in Virginia, and whose words of advise are worthy of careful consideration, says this for the benefit of the tobacco farmers: , .The extreme low price of tobacco and the dullness of the trade with manufacturers and dealers, is causing oreat anxietv amonir- farmers of this section of Virginia and North Caro-pLove scanned it all, yet still could say, I lina, and the constant inquiries by my friends and neighbors as to the cause, and how to remedy their evils have induced me reluctantly to write this letter. I deem it proper first to direct at tention to some of the reasons for the I existing state of depression. The production of tobacco is in ex , cess of the demand, the accumulation i is so great" that but few people will purchase it, except at prices that are j ruinous to the producrs, becuase they ' do not now see when or where they ' can dispose of it for a profit. This over production has been going on for years, until it has reached its climax. The fact that tobacco kept up in j price longer than any other article of HE CHOSE THIS PATH FOR THEE He chose this path for thee.

UAUR1S, DE'NTiST, HENDEtteOJv i . i . r many to aDanaon the cultivation oi cotton and gram, and even to plow up beautiful fields of blue grass to make tobaco, until about one-half of all the States are producing large quantities of tobacco. In this way accumulation has become so great, and the price so low, that it strikes terror to producer, manufacturer and dealer alike. Nearly all are loaded down with stock, and a new crop just thrown upon the market further de presses trade and reduces prices. In addition the cultivation of tobacco ex tends all over the world, and many foreign countries that were important purchasers ot our product are getting a large part of their supplies else where. In many sections tobacco has been grown on unsuitable lands, and by un experienced and unskilled cultivators, without suitable buildings and other appliances for its proper handling greatly increasing the supply of infe rior grades that cannot be profitably used for any purpose, thus adding to the already accumulated stock of poor tobacco to further depress a prostrate market. The habit of many land-owners in this section to entrust the cultivation of their farms to ignorant and un skilled tenants who make nothing but common tobacco that will not sell for enough in manv cases to pay for the fertilizers, or even the haulin and warehouse charges, has much to do with the cry of " hard times" now. The purchase of provisions and fertil izers in such large quantities,' is one of the great evils of our system, and that alone if persisted in, will rum us. Another evil is the general ten dency to over cropping. The mista ken ambition of many tobacco grow ers is to aim for quantity rather than quality, ignoring the fact that one pound of fine tobacco will sell on the markets for more than five or even ten pounds of common, and also the incli nation to hold on to the old maxim of "the lover the price the larger the crop." The indisposition to raise horses, cattle, sheep and hogs and the little attention given to poultry, vegetables and fruits, contributes largely to the lack of prosperity and home comforts of the farmer. Another reason for our depression and lack of prosierity is that, notwith standing we constitute about one-half the population of this country, we are practically without representation in the councils of the nation, ana are common prey for all professions and callings. The result is we are heavily taxed to protect all other industries, of It is a wondrous advantage to a man, in every pursuit or vocation, to secure an adviser in a sensible woman. In woman there is at once a subtle delicacy of tact, and a plain soundness of judgment, which are rarely com bined to an equal degree in man. A woman, if she be really your friend, will have a sensitive regard for your character, honor, repute. She will sel dom counsel you to do a shabby thing, for a woman friend always desires to be proud of you. At the same time, her constitutional timidity makes her more cautious than your male friend. She therefore, seldom counsels you to do an imprudent thing. A man's best female friend is a wife of irood sense and heart, whom he loves, and who love 5 him. But, sup posing the man to be without such a helpmate, female friendship he must still have, or his intellect will be with out a garden, and there will be many an unheeded gap, even in its strongest fence. Better and safer, of course, are such friendships where disparity of years or circumstances puts the idea of love out of the question. Middle age has rarely this advantage; youth and old age have. We may have fe male friendship with those much older, and those much younger than our selves. Female friendship is to a man the bulwark, sweetness, ornament of his existence. Glorious Saturday night. One more link welded to the chain of the past another pittance of space given to the coffers of eternity. Saturday night ! The border of another oasis of rest upon the Great Sahara of toil Saturday night another mile stone on our journey toward "that bourne from whence no traveller re turns." Blessed Saturday night. How grateful seem the nearing shadows of the closing day. With what grand repose the Sun sinks on his daily round, beneath the crimson curtained horizon. The curtain is rung down upon the closing scene of the week. O what a week it has been, you have looked almost over the world upon scenes of peace and happiness; upon scenes of war and woe. The scenes of the short past week, which were so multifarious so varied, so contradis tinct, that human, expression fails in the attempt to describe or delineate. We gaze, and contemplate, only in the emotional sense, and resolve it into the kaleidoscape of the soul. Saturday night. How sweetly sung by Burns? and dear old Prentice, speaks of it, as he did of the "Mid night's holy hour," of the dying year, "Now is the time for memory and for tears." Swing open the portals of the heart, and let its treasures of the sweet, culled from the bitter past gently temper our reflections on that, f Kernersville News.l One of the great causes of failuae in life, why so many boys jnake ship wreck of lives which promise so much, may be accounted for in the tendency on their part to overlook the little things in life. The little civilities, the careful saving of the smallest earnings, the guarding against the little errors which creep into their moral character, and in putting the ideal of their ambi tion in the clouds, expecting to reach it from the inflation of pride, without climbing by cautious footsteps up the rugged heights.
