■Sp WEDNESDAY. jfxK 5, HIM.
President Diaz, of Mexico, has long
been known as a friend of tlie United
States. He has the wisdom and lib
erality to recognize that cordial rela
tions between Mexico and our govern
ment will conduce to the advantage
of both. If Mexico’s rulers had al-
| ways been so sagacious aud prudent the
worst disasters iu her modern history
would have been averted. In respond
ing to the address of the committee
who invited him to attend the Pied
mont Exposition, President Diaz,
among other good things, said:
“bo ready are the people of Mexico
to forget ill-feelings of the past, in
their earnest look to the future, that
even now, less than thirty years since
a government iu France attempted to
foist a foreign government on this re*
public, we are making a display for
Mexico iu the capitnl exposition at
Paris. In even greater degree do I
feel tempted to visit such an expo
sition as you describe in your geucr-
ous invitation, to be held iu the terri-
, tory of the United States, and iu what

the Empire Stale. We desire the
closest friendship with your people,
aud it is our hojie that you will be

The Verdict of History.
The Indianapolis Journal remarks:
“Geu. Wade Hampton thinks ex-
Confederates should never acknow
ledge that they were rebels nr trai-
, tore, and is willing to leave the ijues-'
tion to be settled by impartial history
and posterity. This is all right aud
perfectly natural. No traitor ever
liked the name, aud it is not expected
that fiampton and his associates will
voluntarily brand themselves; but
this will not prevent the application
of proper terms to the conduct of the
Confederate leaders by men loyal
■ from the beginning, and by writers of
The application of terms is a mat
ter of no consequence, truly says the
Nashville American. Men conscious
of the rectitude of their own inten
tions and believing that they fought
for a just cause, will never trouble
themselves about the kind ot terms
applied to them by men so far be
neath them that they can never get a
horizontal view of their characters.
These fellows who mount the political
stump of the tripod of a fourth-rate
partisau newspaper to insult meu
whoso shoe-latchets they arc un
worthy to loose do not write history
and have no place in it.
Muskets and cannon do not decide
for mankind and for history the just
ness of a cause nor the character of
its representatives. The feeble cuibcs
oi the human jackals who delight in
insulting the vanquished soon rot,
with their authors, iu oblivion, but
truth lives to vindicate the patriot
regardless of the fate of his cause.
Let all such slanderers of the South
and its leaders take advantage of the
brief opi portunity given them, for the
last of them will soon have perished
and left no name or record behind.
Whatever else tho true historian may
• say (f the Confederate leaders he wiD
■ay they were pure in motive, stain-
leu in character and faithful to the
bitter end to their cause. Such will
be tho verdict which history will pro
nouncc upon these men, and their
names will shine bright and unsullied
upon its pages when tho«e of their
if JWHy detractors shall have perished
utterly. The latter will escape from
infamy into oblivion. History writes
; : no Dunciad to immortalize the puny
^dslumniatore of the brave and great.
A Pecan Grove-
New York Independent.
The cultivation of the pecan lias
been greatly neglected until recently;
but now that experiment has shown
that a pecan grove is a valuable and
paying resource after it has once come
into hearing; the trees are becoming
very common lit the gardens of South
ern homes. The tree is hardy in most
of the southern states; but it is in the
lower south that it invariably gives the
best results. In Texas and Mexico
where the tree is supposed to attain
to its greatest perfection, large groves
may be found in numbers.
Of course fruit growers, as well as
business men, long for quick profits in
theij work. The waiting time for a
pecan grove to grow is certainly long
and tedious, hut the reward that comes
in lime pays for the patience.
This is one reason why the pecan
has not been cultivated more generally
in the south. The time lor the tree
to begin to hear profitably is from ten
to twelve years from the seed. During
the first few years of Us life its growth
is comparatively slow, but after it gets
well up, with a tap-root deep in the
ground, it increases rapidly in size and
hearing. Raising it from seed is not
advisable; you are never sure of get
ting as good a variety as the seed.
The most approved method is to plant
the pecans exactly where you want the
trees to grow; then gralt or bud upon
the stocks, when of proper size, the
scions or buds secured from a tree
that produces the large or paper shell
pecans. This is better than buying
nursery stock, or raising the trees
front seed. In the former case the
trees will not do so well when trans
planted, and in the latter they will be
of an inferior stock.
The expense connected with a pecan
grove is largely made on the setting
out and budding ol trees After that
work is accomplished the expense is
very little. The land between the
rows of the trees can be used for gar
den vegetables and field crops. Many
raise sugar cane, which pays well and
helps to fertilize the grove.
One should not, however, attempt
to start a pecan grove on anything but
the best land. It is true that they will
grow on almost any kind of land, but
lor the best results a rich, alluvial soil,
such as is found along our rivers and
large creeks is desirable. There is
plenty of this kind of soil all through
the south, which could be profitably
set to pecans These rich bottom
lands, or low hammocks, are consider
ed unsuited for most crops on account
of occasional overflows. The pecan
trees would not he injured by such
inundations, tor many of the best
groves growing in Mexico and "Texas
are lound on just such land.
There is certainly money in tjje
trees tor those who are willing to wait
for the trees to come into hearing.
1 he original outlay is not great, and
no risk is connected with the business.
The profits of groves are differently
estimated by those growing the nuts
for a business, (Soils, cultivation,
favorable locations and other circum
stances so affect the hearing ol any
fruit orchard that estimates made from
the productions of one will he far from
actual facts when applied to another.
Still, an approximate estimate of what
a pecan grove will do under ordinarily
favorable conditions may be made for
those who are of a figure loving dispo
One can count on forty bushels of
nuts to the acre, during the twelfth
year which will be worth from $2 to $4
per bushel. After that period the
yield will increase rapidly. At 20
years of age the trees will yield five
bushels to the tree and double that
amount ten years later. The paper
shell varieties usually sell tor $5 to $8
per bushel; but taking a low average
of $2.50 per bushel we would have
$100 from one acre the twelfth year.
A twenty-acre grove would then
cost $800 for the first twelve years,
including original cost of land plaffting
and interest and taxes. On the 20
acres you would get §2,000 for the
investment in twelve years. On your
3,400 trees you would gather a crop
of 17,000 bushels in twenty years,
making a return of $42,500. The
increase will then continue steadily
until the trees become immense forest
trees. The cost of picking, packing
and shipping the nuts is all the expense
now connected with the grove. In 50
years a fortune could thus be reaped
from a pecan grove, and a man who
plants such trees feeling that he may
never gather much of its fruit, is a
blessing to posterity and his own coun
The -Sparta Iskmaelitc asks: “Isn't
it time for the jicople of Georgin to
quit taxing themselves to run courts
to furuish convict hands to a few
favoured individuals in the state?”
This is a question that will he asked
a good many times in Georgia.
Philadelphia claims a population of
upward of a million. With her saloons

How to Buy a Home.

on twelve shares of a building and

■Some of the managers of theatres in
New York complain of the number
of requests that they receive to give
performances in aid of the public
charities and all kinds of institutions.
They say that if they acceded to all
these requests their actors and ac
tresses would be engaged in charita
ble work every night of the week,
and the whole of the receipts at the
box office would lie turned over to
philanthropic collectors at the end
of each performance. In several cases
clergymen who preach against the
theatre have asked managers to give
performances in aid of some charita
ble society in which they are inter

The recent interstate aud state drill
seems to have set the ball going, at
least two enterprises of the ifcme kind
have matured into certainty within
the last few days. Atlanta proposes
to have an interstate and state drill
in September, with 85,000 in prizes.
In Charleston a drill association with
85,000 capital will soon be formed.
It will arrange for a drill to occur,
probably' in October with 81,500 aR
first prize in the “free for all,” and
8500 for the best drilled company in
South Carolina, which has not com
peted ill an interstate drill. Both the
Atlanta and Charleston drills will
draw large crowds. Macon will prob
ably reach for the big persimmon in
Mr. Joseph Jefferson is constantly
doing something which makes the
popular regard for the man keep its
level with the popular admiration for
the actor. That was a beautiful net
of his the other day when lie hired
Niblo’s theatre and invited all the
orphan homes and other charitable
institutions for children in New York
to send their little ones to see “Rip
Van Winkle.” The house was crowded
with children who were delighted
with the play, as children ever are
when Jefferson is “Rip." Mrs. Cleve
land occupied one of the boxes. Mr.
Jefferson never played to a more ap
preciative audience aud lie never did
a more graceful thing than the giving
of this performance.

when he sees it, aud he is perfectly

Large and Small Crops.
The indications arc favorable to a

tural products of the country this year
and the farmers generally are iu good
A recent statistical publication of
Agricultural Department nt Wash
ington gives some very interesting
figures showing the comparative val
ue of crops ill this country for the
past fifteen years. It would appear
from these figures that short crops
sometimes pays well. A striking in
stance was furnished by r the corn crop
of 1881, which was the shortest that
has been known since 1874. Its to
tal was loss than 1,200,000,000 bush
els and yet it was worth almost as
much ns the greatest corn crop on
record. The average price of corn
in 1881 was 03.0 cents per bushel,
which gave a value of 8750,000,000
to the short crop of that year. Last
year our corn crop was about 2,000,-
000,000 bushels, but it brought only
38.1 per bushel. The total crop,
therefore, was worth only 8077,000.-
600, against 875!),000,000, lor a crop
which was smaller by over three
quarters of a million bushels. But
it would be a great mistake to con
clude that the short crop was really
more valuable than the larger one.
The fallacy of such a supposition is
thus set forth by the New York Com
mercial Bulletin: “According to the
official report of distribution, issued
in March last, out of tho crop of hist
year no less than 1,816,000,000 bush
els of corn was retained within the
country where grown for local con
sumption, and the large part ot it,
obviously, for consumption by the
farmers who produce it. In 1881 it
would have been impossible to con
sume at any price, 011 or near tho
farms, as much as three quarters oi
the quantity so consumed in 1888-0.
The consequence was that fewer cat
tle and hogs were raised, and meats
became dearer for a year or two, aud
meanwhile the cost of corn iu the
markets induced more economical
consumption for human food even on
the farms. It is plain that the (nice
assumed for the entire crop cuuuot be
applied to the part consumed 011 the
farms. It is plain that the farmer
gets nothing for that, except iu the
value of other products sold, which
arc separately reckoned, aud in their
selling price lie rarely gets the value
of the corn actually led wheu the
price is high. In effect, tlieu, the price
applies only to the part left for eale.
which iH reduced to a very small
quantity wheu the crop is short, be
cause the farmer must keep his cat
tle alive, but rose to 371,000,000
bushels last year.”
This is good reasoning iu any case
but it applies with especial force to
the farmers of the South because tkdy
buy largely of grain aud meat.
It is comforting to know that they
arc becoming more independent year
by year aud in many localities which
not long ngo depended on the West
for supplies of this sort there is now a
surplus every year. The recent rains
have refreshed the hopes of the farm
ers, and from every qurrtcr come
