Well, John ia big and fat, and boards at a piney-woods hotel well kept by a hostess, yet, John is in trouble. Hike the pende- , Jo lum of a clock, John is kept moving to and fro. by some bus iness machinery in the back ground, and one would suppose enough to occupy his mind, ns well ashishands, und keep him out of trouble, but not so, John is in trouble. Not love sick, for John has a wife and a daughter, the pride of his life; not much money to bury or take care of otherwise; no railroad stock running down, or mines failing; no bonds fulling due, and one would think John happy, hut John is in trouble. Not that he has been speculating and got bit or has been practicing any of the many evils common among men, to causo his trouble, but tho ruts, a tot of rats, a host of ruts, scamper around, up and down, iu sight and out of sight, in the light and in the dark, and John does not like their rat tle or prattle, and petty thefts, such as taking the pillow from under his head at night, and transferring it to other parts of tiio houso for, bedding, mid after cutting tlie buttons oft of his clothes cut the pockets out of his pants, hunting for money, which John says “they were fooled in, as a turpentine man does not carry the article,” iis his experience goes. Well, John, Big Bonanza or Demijohn, as he is sometimes called, was in quest of a remedy for rats, add was rejoiced to know that lie had found a man who could supply him with va rious kinds. He had fed them rid of the ruts if it is one by one. Hat Master chops ix oKoitoiA. The May report of the agri cultural department shows that the acreage devoted to corn, suys the Atlanta Constitution, is within two per cent of Ian aver age, tho northerh part Excelling in this respect, and the south western part falling below its usual planting. The condition and prospect of tho crop is good, the dry weather having favored the preparation of the soil. If rain and sunshine arc hand somely alternated until the lat ter days of July, ve may reason ably expect a fine crop of corn —one, in fact, that will meet all home, demands. The acreage of the oat crop is 8 per cent below an average, and the condition of the crop is 1G per cent, below. Over three quarters of the fall-sowing in tho upper part of the State was destroyed during tho severe winter, and in the middle por tion of the State nour one lialf- of tho full sowing was destroyed in like mannor. The spring sowing was large, lift 'a very considerable deficiermy in this valuable crop may be expected. The growing corn crop'becomes therefore, of greater importance and value. The wheat crop will also be short, the acreage being 15 per cent, less, and the condition and prospect 10 per cent. The loss was caused by tho freezing weather of u winter that nipped neurly everything it encounter ed.

Ho was a blacksmith by profession, and in his limited sphere did a great deal of good. In a peculiarly agricultural re gion his occupation made him a person of more than ordinary importance.' A skilled ■ artisan his servicos were always in de mand, and his humble shop was the centre of a wihierness of weeds. Here he repaired the wag- ons of the honest farmers, reno vated the dilapidated skillets of the hospitable housewives, sliced the horse* of future southern statesmen and soldiers, gave new life to disabled hoes and plows, and occasionally put new hair-spring* iu the watches of such negroes &t4iappeucd to be equal quasi arbiters of time.— ►Short and squatty of person, and reticent of speech he w on the esteem and respect of a clientage that preferred to do all the talk ing, and he soon laid up a good ly supply of treasure. The black smith used genuine bituminous coal. In a coalless country, and on the borders at that, how lie got it was an absorbing mystery and a mystery it has remained to this day. Many were the ef forts made to discover his secret but they all failed. Watch after watch was placed on his move ments, but they all came to naught. Every little while the shop would be locked up and its owner would mysteriously disap pear.

There will un doubtedly be enough cotton. Of the miscellaneous crop, rice lias a good start; the sugar cane in the lower part of the State is looking well, aud the sorghum everywhere is very promising. A large peach crop is expected in all sections of the State, and tho apple trees and grapevines uro keeping up with the procession. Live stock of all kinds is reported in healthy condition, there being only a few cases of cholenwtnmng hogs. The stock of hogs in tho State is, however, 13 per cent bolow un average supply at this season of the year. The rainfall of April 'wns re markably small. It was three inches less than the average downpour of the last teu years. But tho prevailing dryness of the past month enabled the farmers, particularly of tho northern portion of the State, to start their crops in the-best- manner. Tho cotton crap in up per Georgia was on this account planted at the usual timo iu April, and in all parts of the State the crops have a good start, el ways excepting, of course, those that were roughly! handled by the irosts of tbo winter months. 1 the fires would blaze aud crackle, and at the forge would he old Burgesse, but neither from him or his grinning helper could a word be gotten as to their jour- n y.
