In a letter to Messrs. Latimm, Alex- ander & Co., of New York, Messrs. R. IL Dancy& Co., of llouston, Tex., have something to say on the subject of di- versifications which should have a healthy effect upon every cotton grow- er. it is as fo',lows: "The planters must diversify their crops anti plant less cotton, or our beautiful laml, with the most produc- tive :oii on earth, will produce pauper- ism, want and misery to those who have the power in thcir own hands to mold their destiny. "Thcy claim nnless the tenant and average farmer will agree to phmt a certain quantity of 'cotton acreage' the merchants can not and will not supply his wants.

THE VALUE OF THE C0W PEA. /k Missourlsm Gives Ilia Views as to the Value of the Cow Pek to the Farmer. Not long since i had oecaMon to visit the stock farm of Dr. McAllistm', of this place, and 1 will take the liberty of quoting him on the subject of the cow pea. The doctor is dean of the medical department of the state university, and a successful breeder of the thor- oughbred horse, hcnce his opinion is worth a good deal. He was lcd to ex- periment with the cow pea at the in- stance of Mr. Joe Lucas, a wealthy ltorue breeder of St. Louis county, and ays his most sanguine expectations were more than realized, lie planted two bushels to the acre in ground much of which was too poor to grow any, thing else, .nd harvested in hay over two tons to tPe acre. He says that in average good ground the yield would be much greater. The seed was drilled in June and hay cut in August. It was allowed to cure in shock and sub- aequently put under shelter. The doc- tor says his mares and colts relish this cow peahayeven more than they (to helted oats cr clovd, leaving a full feed f the latter to iadulge in it. To tlltrate how his horses took to thts forage, he said a mare his sons were shaping up to exhibit at the county fair whenev,r turned out to exercise in a vacant lot ia which some of t'his hay that had been damaged was thrown, would eat of it so persistently that they feared she would founder. The value of the cow pea as a soil renovatoi has been thoroughly ex- ploited by the agricultural press and experimental stations. Formerly it was thought that the roots of this legume tapped a reservoir of nitrogen in the subsoil, but now it is generally understood that this class of plants has the power of acquiring free nitr0gen from the atmosphere. It will grow on soils too poor to get a stand of clover, hence it has an advantage over the latter plant. In this section it can be planted as late as the middle of June and will make a hay crop if it gts one good rain. If planted in Jun it will not mature until August, after the rush of summer work is over, and a at this time we have little rain, it m altogether a very convenient plant to handle. It is like dover, hard to save unless the weather is propitious. It must not be put away at all green or damp, or it will be sure to mold. The cost of seed has been adrawback to the general introduction of this forage plant. Dr. McAllister paid as high as $ a bushel for that he planted last year. However, he said he hoped to get it for $1.25 this season. A few months ago I wrote an article on broom corn and since have received several letters asking where the seed could be bought. It will readily be understood that it would not be busi- ness t: give any particular dca!er free advertiMng. Itowever. the cow pea can be had without much difficulty, ll; might pay a farm- er, wishing to give it a rial. to in- duce some of his neighbors to go in with him. and thus, by sending in a large order, get a very material reduc- tion iu the price. If one wishes to grow the pea for hay he must order an erect variety--the three best being the Unknown, Clay and Whip-poor will, the last variety named being, I think, the most popular. In the south the best stock pc for field grazing for either cattle or hogs is the black. It will remain on tim ground all winter without injury. For an "all purpose'" a the Uuknown ia said to be the st. Abbout six years ago I saw a 4D-acre field of the cow pea growing on the farm of Mr. Joe Lucas. It had been drilled, thc stand was perfect, and the field free from weeds, and altogether it was indeed a beautiful sight. The experience of years has convinced Mr. Lucas. according to Dr. McAlliser, that the cow pea is the best forage plant he can grow for his thorough- breds, it might be wcll for many of us farmers to give it a trial on a small scale, at least. 0eorge R.

When the lungs are attacked and the symptoms of consumption appear, then begins the struggle between affection and that destroying disease which slays its thousands annually. It is a happy issue to the struggle when disease is conquered and health restored. Such au issue does not always end the struggle, but it did in the case of Mr. K. Morris, Memphis, Tenn., who saw hia wife wasting and weakening and physicians helpless, and then sug- gested the simple emedy that wrought the cure. He tells the story thus: "Seven years ago, my wife had a severe attack of luug trouble which the phy- sicians pronounced consumption. The cough was extremely distressing, espe- cially at night, and was frequently attended with the spitting of blooc. The doctors beiug nnable to help her, I in- duced her to try Dr. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral and was surprised at the great relief it gave. Before using one whole bottle she was cured, so that no she is strong and quite healthy, That this medicine saved my wife's life I have not the least doubt. I always keep Dr. Ayer's Cherry Pectoral in the house. Whenever any of my family have a cold or cough we use it, and are promptly eured."--K. MORRIS, Memphis, Tenn.

Mrs. Pinkham Say a Careful Regard for Bodily Hoalth Makes Women Sweet and Attractive to All. The world is filled with sweet women who are held back from usefulness by some trouble of the female organs. Fretfulness and nervousness rapidly destroy sweet dispositions. Sickly all-worn-out women cannot live happy lives. Nearly every woman may be well and happy if she will follow Mrs. Pinkham's advice. See what Mrs. Craig says: "DEAR MRS.

PxKn:--Before writing to you I felt very bad, had terrible sick headaches, no appetite, gnawing pain in stomach, pain in my back and right side; was tired and nervous, and so weak I could scarcely stand. I wasno able to do anything, had sharp pains all through my body. Before I had taken half a bottle of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, I found myself im- proving.
