Little FaUsJranscript, H. C. STIVERS, Bditorand Proprietor. LITTLE PALLS, MINN CURRENT TDPJCS. As a hint to farmers, it is well to con rider the fact, that.wheat has doubled in. an average yield in England since gener­ al underdraining has been practiced. The deeu and. protracted, frgats of the present winter betoken a good crop year, according to the judgment of the proph­ ets. Bo let there be a big crop planted. More Southern planters raised their own meat and bread last year than ever before. Those who did so are independ­ ent of the price of cotton for one year at least.
