approbation of the public.
During the year 1873, Do ex

ahead of all competitors in Georgia

all quarters. There has, as yet, been

It is, perhaps, needless to speak
of the politics of the Morning News:

My Baby In the Skies.
KV Mom a.
There’s a low mettil'l In my garden
Where llie'eml cm (toWere bloom;
Wh.-ro tlie mock bird's note I? sO.-L-test;
Where tlie irentle zephyrs cottiG;
Where the violets watch with pity
In their toft, dark, velvet eyes.
So like those ’neath them buried,
Ot zuy baby in the Skies.
Otto year ago we laid him
To rest, beneath the shade
Of the willow mournful waving,
As tlie lattist sunlieams stayed.
And that place, pf others, to tUy heart
Is bound by dearet ties;
For tlietS sleeps t-11 that’s tnoriitl
Ot my baby in the skies.
Other childish forms are round me,
Whose joyous laughter rings
Through the old houlty making Wchoes,
15ut Ibfe sound nil p'easure brings
For it cdls up saddest memoties,
rco me as they rise
Of the silveiy tones now silenced.
Of my baby in the skies.
lh tfii; gloaming of tlie twilight,
As sad leeollection springs,
1 think I hear tlie flutter
Of his tiny angel wings.
Oh i thiuk you that our loVt-d and lost
Heed not our mournful sighs !
My dearest, truest comforter, .
Is tuy b iby in the skies.
For its I, grieVing, raurmilf,
He comes with golden I)ft},
And points my sad heart heavenward
To the while-robed angel choir.
Ami as I in fa:iev listen,
Tlie wild yearning in me dies,
For my taken earthly treasure,
For my baby in th# skies.
And then I fee! I ran resign',
For these f.;W weaiy duys,
Tbe smile—the kiss—tlie golden hah—
't he tender, winning ways.
For I know that, truly, “it is well”
With my darilrg, and I prize
Beyond my life, the hope to go
To my baby in tlie skies
Plant Coax.—We insist upon
singing this old tune again. It is
perfectly disgusting, no doubt, to
yonr friends; the planters, who know
their business so much better than
we do, hut we liko to be a nu’sance
occasionally, and so we sing, “Plant,
corn,’* by way of vnrety. What we
know about farming can be put in
one very short, chapter, hut it is long
enough’to he wlip buys
com to make cotton finds himself in
the voeoinotivo when settling day
comes. Brethren, we ha' been
there and know where of we affirm.
We can tell a man who has corn
enough to last him till fall from one
who hasn’t, half a mile off. The corn
man cocks his hat on one side and
swings along with a free'*Vid easy
stride —there’s courage in his step
and hope in his eye. The no-corn
man has his hat pulled over his eyes
and shambles along with a sloughing
gait and a tide long look, as if lie ex
pected every minute somebody would
sing out: “ I know what ails you.
You haven’t corn enough to last tid
May.” lie takes the bray of any
casual hungry or lonesome mule ns a
petsotial reflection and can’t look the
ciitter in the face, thinking lie is say
ing to himself:
There goes a cotton lunatic—may
the devil fly away with him. Of
such is the purgatory of my tribe.
Wo don’t know any nian who lias
gone to pot since the war through
planting too much corn, but we do
know a few who have traveled that
road through an over dose of cotton.
If there is any stronger argument on
the corn side of the question’ wo
haven’t been introduced to it, as yet.

was speaking of, is little tiro hand
somest woman, I reckon, tint ever
looked a titan into fits, and I ought
to boa judge, foH I’ve seen lots of
pretty women in my days, bhe was
about thirty five years old when I
went up there to wotk, just iti the
bloom ofher beauty, as full of devil
try as a three year old mule colt.
There was a ball Over tit Jenkins,”
and of course I went, for I always go
where there is any fun going on, and
generally act the fool before I get
away, of eourse. The widow was
there dressed as fine ns one of So|o
ltiou’s lilies, and flying around like a
yonrig lamb in a rye patch, I was
introduced to her and asked her to
danoc with me, and she said “ yes.”
I jumped up like I’d been sot down
on a kit of live coals. You may talk
about your sensations, but when she
took Hold of riiy band and sorer
squeezed it, I felt a sensation ns big
as a load of wood, and U kept run
ning up and down my back like a
cat squirrel with a hawk, after him.
I’m very fond of dancing, but I’ll be
hanged if I Could tdl exactly wheth
er I enjoyed it tlmfc night or not, for
every time she took hold of my
hand I’d commence fccliug curious
behind the ears aud up and down the
buck again, and then I wouldn’t
know Whether 1 was on earth or in a
balloon, or on or anything
about it. It was undoubtedly a ease
of love at first sight and a powerful
bad case at that. For a Wonder 1
got throngh .the frolic w ithout cut
ting up any extras, as I’m in the hab
it of doing wlicu 1 go into public.
I’d set my pegs to go borne with the
widow when the ball ended, but just
ns 1 was fixing my mouth to ask her
up st -ps a long, lather-faccd doctor
named Mabry, Walked her offright
befoio my eyes. That riled me a
little, but I kept my tonge still, in
wardly swearing to break his bones
the very first opportunity that offer
ed itself. 1 saw there was no use
saying anything, so I went home and
went to bed, and all the rest of the
night I was dreaming about rain
bows, angels, butterflies, fiddles,
widows and doctors, aud mixed
worse than a dutchman’s dinner.
Well, “Squire, to make a short story
of it, I made up inv mind to have
the widow or kill myself or some

I was determined it shouldn’t Hat
long, for I’d been fooled o often liy
women that I thought I would not
give her lime to think of anything
but me She appeared to take to me
right sharply and though the doctor
seemed inclined to mix it with me.
1 did not consider him move in the
way than a brush fence for I thought
1 was so far gone she couldn't sec
nobody on earth but me. Well,”
Squire, things went on so for about
a month, ami on Sunday 1 screwed
up my spunk and put the question to
her. She sorter looked oue-stded
and finally told me she couldn’t give
me an answer jnst then, hut if I’d

about it, and ever I went, dressed in

a right smart crowd collected, which
wa* not on the bills, but I felt as big
ami as good as lit.- rest of’em. So
I matched in like a blind mule into a
potato patch, and took a seat by the
tirfe. 1 didn’t see attytiiing of the
widow but kept looking for her to
come in or send for me, and passed
away the time by cussitt’ the crowd
to myself, thinking they had no buxi
ness there, and I would not get to
talk to tny woman a bit. Presently
a door opened and in walked Polly

was studying I saw the doctor’s sad
dle-bags setting in a corner, so I
waited until they went to supper,
and then I got the bags and looked
to see what I could discover. Near
ly the first thing I saw a piece of
lunar ooslic. I slipped it iuto my
i'oeket, for I had a plan* as soon as
saw it. Well, I watched around
till I saw one of the girls go to the
water pail with a pitcher, and I went
