Do you hear the sad. sweet musi -.
Which, like some .Lilian strain
struck by warm winds' unseen lingers.
Comes and goes, and conies again ':
Tis the plaintive voice of Nature.
Singing softly while she grisvps.
l ist ' 'tis the funeral march of Summer
'Tis ths dirge of fallm: leaves.
We may catch the faltering accents
If we list with bated breath:
"Time's tireless wheel in endless cycles
Brings birth and life and death.
Why are the brightest j "y 8 the ileete.-t
Why sing, if song must end in sih '.'
Why smile, if smiles so soon are faded .'
Why live at all, if but to die r"
Thus is the mournful. whispered cadi nee
Borne through the air on falling leaves :
Thus nature, like a sorrowing mother.
Sits by her dying child and grieve
And my heart has caught the echo.
Beating time to the refrain.
Dying, dying, thus around me '
Is there ought Death cannot claim '.-
Arouse, my heart, be brave and earnest '
Throw otf the chill chains cf despond!
Have you not heard the glr ious promise
Of a birth and life beyond :
Though the leaves shall fall and wither,
They will surely come again:
Though Death claim you for a season.
Life immortal waits you then

1 1 e i i i tne cotton lields, and

the average farmer as very
Iv in the handling of his
appreciate two things which
much to do with the matter,
t hat t he cotton boll is en-
vol ope vl by leaves whi(di hug it very
closely ainl adhere to the lint when
the boll is full open : t t.
boll leaves soon dry up and become
so brittle that they break at a touch
and are gathered with the lint,
unless the picker constantly stops
to separate the two before he de
posits the cotton in his sack. Only
the first picked cotton, that which
is gathered vbilt the leaves are
still green, pliable and tough,
escapes this drawback. The other
thing is that the negro is the chief
cotton tucker at the South, and
the farmer must adopt his methods
and arrangements to the negro's
nature. He cannot change his
child like, careless disposition, and
cannot impiess upon him. either by
rewards or ot herwise. nice d;; inc
t inns or delicate tnanipalati-'i's.
Very low negroes cm be taught or
induced to run propel ly a gni, a:i
engine, a mow er or reaper ; and he
who undertakes to get similar
woik out of a negro to that which
he gets out of a white man will,
nine times out of ten, fail as com
pletely as the one who tries to get
the movements ol a thoroughbred
race horse out ol an ox.
Again, in favorable weather, the
farmer is unable to keep up close
with his cotton: it will open much
more rapidly than he can pick it out.
even when allowing his hands to
push ahead without regard to trash.
Consider the possibility of rain and
wind blowing out the cotton on tha
ground and staining it. Which
will bring h;m greater profits, leafy
and trashy but white cotton, or
storm, dirty, trashy and stained
cotton .' Unquestionably the fir.st.
And the farmer who pushes on his
cotton picking as rapidly as pos
sible, who shuts his eyes a good
deal abie.it trash, and lias in con
sequence the least storm cotton,
exhibits decidedly the bestjudg-'
inent. Let any one inspect a gin
through which storm cotton is
passing, and he will quickly under
stand why there is oltcu so much
dirt and grit in cotton: and ap
preciate the injustice, when the
farmer is accused of frauduen th
udding these to it.
Rut there is one thing in the
handling of cotton about which
most farmers may be properly
criticised. They neglect the dry-
ing of the cotton picked early in
t , , 010(111 IT )PT1 if 1 (TrfPn 3ni
that nirke.l ParlvintliP mnrn in o-
,.. . y V; '
nnen uisweiuew. uamp cotton
cannot be ginned so as to make a
tine sample. Much of the cutting
of the staple and the knapping ol
it, is attributable to its dampness.
Now this is a matter which a far
mer can manage. With compara
tively little outlay or trouble lie
can dry his cotton. The substitu
tion of sheets of cloth in place of
uaskcts will ueip to HO tms. t OUOn
spread out on sheets will dry more
rapidly than when packed in bas
kets. Cheap plank scaffolds can
be provided on which the forenoon
picking may be snnned in the after
noon. If cotton is bulked so as to
get slightly heated and then opened
and led to a gin through a feeder,
much of its moisture will be di
lapidated. Feeders also contribute
to the beauty of sample, as they
cause the saws to do their work
better, by the uniformity and regu
larity of the feeding. Feeders and
condensers are most valuable and
important additions to a gin, the
tirst for reasons already assigned,
tha second for decreasing the risk
of fire. A lint room is the tinder
box of a gin house.

It is almost impossible to attach any
importance to one cent, but at the same
time it is a very important coin at times,

not four cents and a ten-dollar bill.
One cent is very small, but when it is
added to the rate of interest you re

magnificent grandeur that carries you
away like a strain cf music. The penny,
il seems, was made to put on church
