( Maim fact nr 1 TON 'N 1' A KM. is, liarties remote 1 1 e i i i tne cotton lields, and not familiar with farming the average farmer as very Iv in the handling of his jtersons regard They have i )ne. 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. Tne protracted dry weather of late has prevented the perfect de velopment ol the last formed bolls and can.- lsed more or less premature ; Of the same.

AY. L. J., in At lanta 'onstitution. it((ittary Fairchild's Views. Secretary Fairchild's comment on the action of the Treasury De partment during his absence from Washington is modest but compre hensive and statesman-like. He appreciates fully the extent and possible consequences of the strin gency that has prevailed in the money market, and rightly ascribes it to the greatly increased business of the ennntrv. to which flip o-ain nf S7u.0o0.000 in the volume of carren- , , , , . cy that has occurred during the past year is intirely inadequate. Tiie bonds purchased under the recent order will raise the volume of currency to the extent of S20, ooo.doo, so'that we will have in use throughout the country not far fiom SD.'u. 000,000 more money to meet the demands of the fall trade of Pi than was available in ISisG. The Secretary's modest conversa tion about his own part in the re cent Treasury doings does not suc ceed in concealing the fact that the relief that was given to the country by the purchase of four per cents was with his hearty concurrence.

It is almost impossible to attach any importance to one cent, but at the same time it is a very important coin at times, says an exchange. It will take a circu lar to California, and it will make you madder than a hatter and a March hare combined when you go to pay your fare on a horse car and find that you have 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 ceive on a stock it possesses a stern, magnificent grandeur that carries you away like a strain cf music. The penny, il seems, was made to put on church plates, and. although a man may eay it amounts to nothing, he will strike matches and lift mats and crawl about in the straw on a horse car to find the T0U have to take elf vour elove to take you have to take oil your glove to hold of it in vour pocket, and vet it is so large, when the babv swallows i:. the chances oi the baby 's lining are some- LlIues n.'t o 1 1 li it cc'Lii. .vitnoun line cent is less than ten cents, vet one cent J. n 1 HoqI larr-nr limn o .t'mo ,,! ir,. ,i,n jjanv a man has gene thirstv ill dav with four cents in his pocket.
