No Money in FarmIng. We extract the following from a cor respondenceo to theSouthern Cultiva tor. Nine-tenths of Southern farmers will tell you that they have niade no money in farming since the war: and when asked the reason why, their quick retort is apt to be: "Raising to much cotton to the neg lect of other .crops," to which our land and climate are so admirably adapted. While ( admit this coin elusion to be correct in part, it is not the only and main cause of our failure. It should he charged, ini my judgment. to a defective system of farming to wit: The planting of poor, impoverished lands requir ing from three to six acres to make a bale of cotton even with tfle half of commercial fertilizers. The plan ing of such poor land in cotton in my own country, by intelligent farmers, I have often noticed, and Shave no doubt that the same custom prevails largely throughout the entire South. If every intelligent farmer would only pause for e moment before pitching his crop and calcula...

By the new process of toughening timber it is claimed that the effect produced open whitewood is such that a cold chisel is required in or der to split it. This result is accom plihhed by a sps«ial method of steaming the timber and suibmitting it to end pressure, technically "Ip setting it." By this means the cells and fibers are compressed into one comipact masds ; and it is the opinion of those who have e.xperimented with the process that wood can be compressed to the extent of some sevLnty-five per cenut., and that some of the timber now considered unfil for use in such work as carriage building, fur instance, can be made valuable by this means as a substi inte for ash, hickory, etc.-Boston Globe.
