Some Good Hard Sense. Gleatoxs, S, C June 7th, 1886. As regards crops in this section every thing may be classed two or three ?weeks behind to what it was up to this date last season, yet, notwithstanding the unfavorable* weather we had in May, which kept cotton from coming up,* we have some very fine patches that Will compare favorable with any in the county. There is a great many advocating the small farm system ami hireing but few hands, and 'tis those alone who are practicing it that suc cess seems to attend. There is not the demand for labor this year as has been heretofore, and from the tone of con versations among our planters gener ally the day is not far distant when there will be but little demand for cuffy's labor, by the day or month, and but little goods bought on time, and Avhen ever that day comes, which come it must, owing to the low price of cot ton, then will dawn on a burdened people the bright days of a brighter millennium. Then there will be but few mortgages gi...

THE MOCKING BIRD. GRADUAL EXTERMINATION OF THE SONGSTER OF THE SOUTH. Shot by Unsentimental Hunters? Kob blng the Nests?The Mocking Ulrtl from a Sentimental Point of View?His Won derful Powers of Song. A great deal has been written during the last three years concerning the grad ual extermination of the south's splendid songster, the mocking bird, or to be more definite, the Mimus Polyglottus. The Telegraph first called attention to the sub ject, and I see no -eason to doubt that the theory then advanced to account for the growing scarcity of the birds was and is a true one. The reason given was the un checked slaughter of the birds by negro "uportsmen," and the destruction or cap tare of their young from wantonness or a desire for gain. The theory has been com bated. It is stated by some that the Eng lish sparrow is driving out the singers. By others that the destruction of the for ests has something to do with the evIL It is even suggested that hurricanes may be the real cause. No...

You say the spring is here; But why should I, who ne'er knew of joy of life, Find in the May good-cheer, Or heed that still earth's miracle is rife, A bourgeoned sphere, In the morning of the year!

ARGENTINA'S COWBOY. BI8HPP FOWLER TELLS OF THE CEN TAUR OF SOUTH AMERICA. PerSbnal Appearance and Characteristics of the Gaucho of the Pampas?Siiupl? Food and Picturesque Garments?Span ish Speech and Compliment. The original cowboy is the product of South America. He rides a horse as if he and the animal was one. He comes near to realizing the old thought of the Mexi cans, when they first saw the Spanish horsemen, that this mounted human body was a distinct order of beings. One would not hunt on the pampas among the gauchos for the millennium, nor for a higher order of beings, any quicker than he would among the cowboys of ?Texas or Arizona. The gtucho is not un like the cowboy, except that he is every way more so. He is more of an Indian, for he usually has. quite a per cent, of Indian blood, undeniably declared in his high cheekbones, straight, course, black hair, and copper or dark-ting d skin. He rides wilder horses, and wit either more or less trappings, as necessity compels or...

BELLES OF THE TURF. The Horsey Side of New York Feminine Society?Kissing the Winner. It has been very amusing to witness at the races this year the changed attire and manners of the New York society girls who have attended them. The costumes seen, when not concealed by an English cover coat have been strikingly mannish in cut and material. Stand-up collars, with edges turned slightly down, cuta way coats, leaving exposed a small ex panse of shirt bosom, regular men's cra vats, with little horsey pins and cuffs with link sleeve-buttons completed these cos tumes. Before the races these sporty young ladies invariably visited the sad dling paddock, investigated the steeds that were to run with seemingly practiced eyes, and loudly criticised their points, with the nonchalance and apparent knowledge of professional jockeys. Another noticeable feature of this year's races has been the open manner in which the society girls present had indulged in betting upon them. Since New York so ciety ...

"The* cotton worm is the caterpillar of an owlet moth of the tribe of noc ture. The perfect insect is of a trian gular shape, about an inch in length; the upper wings reddish gray, a dark spot with a whitish centre in the mid dle; the under wings are darker. The caterpillar have 16 legs, but the fore most prop legs are so short that in. creeping they arch up the back like the geometers or span worms; the color is green, with light yellow stripes and black dots along the back; the second and third generations are darker than the first; they grow to the length of an inch and a half.
