done, as he happens to think of
them, or as they are brought to his
I attention. A glance through its
i paes from time to time will bring
before him all the work that ought
j to tie done on his farm. Having
I the items grouped before his eyes,
I he can arrange the order in which
I they should bi' looked after and
1 make thein fit properly into each
'other. One who has never tried
; such a plan, does not realize how
' much time and latvor can be saved
thereby. Let us illustrate it a
Small grain harvest is approach
ing. When the proper time ar
rives the grain must be cut it will
not wait. Storms may blow it
down. Surveying his fields the
farmer judges that his wheat will be ,
ready to cut by time, and his
oats by time. He makes a
! memorandum of this. So many
days, with so many hands will be
required. Will the condition of
his corn, cotton and other crops
admit of the withdrawal of so many
hands from them for so much time.
If not, he must hurry and work up !
to that point. Bring in the help of
women and children, and any other i
available hands, and get ready for
harvest. When it comes, hands
will be in demand and hard to get.
Usually two prices will be asked.
Proper entries in his book will
prompt him to do these things.
Again, he may desire to put bis
grain land in peas, as soon a- the
graiu is harvested. Let an entry
be made of that. It will say this,
if you stop y our plows during bar ;
ve-t, oy the time the latter is over, :
your coin and cotton will need
plowing badly, ahd how can you
stop t hem to put iu peas T Arrange,
then-fore, to keep the plows going
steadily through harvest time, and,
then they may be spared a little
while to get in the peas. Remem
ber, also, that the season is rapidly
passing, and that the grain needs
to stay iu the field awhile to cure,
and thu may cause delay in plant
ing the peas. Make small shocks, ;
therefore, and set them up in (
straight rows, and in the direc- j
tions you prefer to plow the land.
Then yoa can plow between the
lines of shocks, and plant peas at
once without waiting to remove the
grain. If it happens to Imj dry
fine ' everything must be ready to take
advantage ot the first shower of
rain that softens the ground. The
hard-working, busy farmer, intent
upon the job immediatelv before
him is not apt to look ahead and
arrange matters, weeks in advance,
unless he is prompted in some wav.

A Story of ickhurir.
Here is a story with the scene
laid in Vicksburg. It was while 1
was in 'ick-burg starving on pea
bread and dodging the Yankee
shell-. 1 was detailed to gu to the
commissary to do some work. The
boys made it a part of theii work
to slip something more than was
given to them when they went to
the commissary, and it was always
something to eat. which they would
divide with us. 1 though; that as
it had come my time to go I would
be as good as they had been, if the
oppoi i unity aHoided. That we
w.-re watched you need not doubt,
and that there was reason fur steal
ing 1 need not deny. Hut i; makes
me feel like a sheep thiet .vet. when
1 think of it. - When 1 was in the
commissary. I could see nothing
open but a bariel of erackeis. 1
could get to nothing bettei and
concluded to take a good supply ot
them. I n w a'.k'.ng about the com
missary 1 nni.ii- it convenient to go
the bariel of hardtack- and slip
a handful m my bosom, always
watching the commissary sergeant.
I worked hard when he was look
ing at me. I never once thought
about how main of the crackers I
wa.- getting into my bo.-om. 1
ni-vei noticed that my shirt b...l
was growing to an enormous size.
I was thinking of the -upper that
the bov s would have thai night.
Suddenly the bottom part of my
shin slipped out from under the
wai-t band of my pants. The sei -geant
was looking at me. The
si! uatnm I was in can only be
imagined. I was exe;;. .!. and it
seemed to me that there was a
bushel of the d. uned things spilled
around me. The sergeant simply
said : Viui had a supply." and

when he saw a dark mass land m

then heard sounds of a scuttle and
a cry for help.
