Good advice is about "the
cheapest tiling in the market
and the best fdo if scrupulous-
ly followed ivien it is sound

the year when a plethoric crop
of cotton becomes an assured
fact grfibrdiiur -unmistakable
demonstratioi! that prices nust1
according to the inexorable laws
of supply and demand rule low
nearly every tanner is ready to
exclaim and does exclaim :
".Well I shall ccrtanly plant
less cotton next yqarK than I
have planted this."
It will be necessary in a very
short time for every farmer to
come to a determination for
himself on tlio much mooted
question of pitching a crop. It
is not the fault ol government
that the cotton market is liter-
ally choked and glutted with
this article by an over produc
tion of the snowy staple. The
farmers have no one to blame
for the low prices but them-
selves. According to the pres-
ent civilization of 'the world
and until the 'necessity of dis-
tributing "nior pocket hand-
kerchiefs" among the heathen
hy'inissio'.iaries. thill cease and
Jhis same heathen shall assume
full toilets cotton must and
will rule low" as long as four
millions of bales aro annually
made iu America. This is as
inevitable as it the fiat had
been pronounced by Jehovah
Will our farming communi-
ties in spit of all the hitter
experience through which they
liHve passed in the Ia?t few vears i
still persist in over. proJ'uctioa ?
We. have heard 'intelligent
farmers assert time and again
that it cost more th in tenccnt3
a pound to make cottou. Ljp-
ton has not averaged this much
during the present commercial
year by more than a cent. It
was hoped and believed by ma-
ny that'tha new organizationr
known as Grangers could and
would do something to prevent
the suicidal pjliey- pursued by
the cotto.i planters As yet so
far as the general public are ad-
vised they havjsr' accomplished
nothing in the direction allud-
Th? irnth 'is every farmer
must 'determine this question of
cotton planting for himsclf.
Every farmer must act tor him-
self just as hewould on a ques-
tion involving morals iot ev-
ery planter. apply tlio moral
qnotation withaslight varia-
tion"when about to determine
the amount of cotton he will
plant: "I know not what course
others in ly take but as tor me
and my house we will" plant
less cotton than heretofore!

The boy who spends an hour
each evening lonnging idly on'
the street cdrncr wastes in tho
course ot a year three hundred
and sixty five hours which if
applied to study would famil-
arize him with the rudiments of
almost any of the familiar scien-
ces. In addition to wasting an
hour each evening he spends ten
cents for a cigar which is usual-
ly the case ; the amount thus
worse than wasted would pay for
ten of tho lcadtng peiiodiodicals
ot the country. Boys' think ot
these things. Think ot how
much time and money you are
wasting and for what? The
gratification afforded by the
loiinge otrthe corner or the cigav

itively hurtful. You cannot in-
