Mr. ThrockuaofEoiT is ""iIiiiT~pr<3[ 1 )riuTor"bT'tlre" most unique and remunerative farm in Georgia. It is tho "Lime Greek "Possum farm." ,On tho very crest of n w<;ll wooded hill is a comfortable cottage surrounded by beautiful shade lives). At the foot of tliu hill is a pretty brand), running through the very center of a ten acru jjerHiuimou grove inclosed within u hiy;h board fence. Tho persimmon tret».a are iutergpersed with a quantity of old hollow trees and hollow logs planted in the ground. WHAT AN EXl'RKT SAW.

His legs and feet aro drawn close into his hody and Ilin horul drawn up hi-twccn his shoulders until it funiis an ulm.,.U perfect ball aud appi'ai'H to bo a great pear covered with white fnr. The sun was slowly setting below the distant pine mountains and wu were still gating at the queer objects in amused wonder when a half do/.en little'possums emerged from tho pocket of their mother, ran up her tail and commenced playing on tho limb above. In a few minuted this marsupial stretched hor head and then her foro feet out. Sho swung herself once or twice, grabbed her tail with her fore paws ttnd dinibod up it to the limb, which she caught with her claws, untwisted her t-.ftl and .nulled it up. Hardly h:ul nhu balanced herself when the half dozen young ones climt>od into her pocket and were hid from view. Sho then cliiubuil down the tree. While this was going on more than seven hundred others had awakened aud were coming down from the trees. Reaching the ground each one made for the creek, drank, and then j-au up tho hill to a pen in which they weru to bo fed. BAKED 'PO.SSUM AND 'TATERS. They were of all sizes. Sotno would barely weigh a half pound, while others would tip tho scales at thirty. Tho 'possum, when hungry, utters a sound which is a cross between a mew and a moan. Over seven hundred 'possums Wero together so thick that the ground could not bo seen between them, and tho small ones had been forced upon tho backs of the larger. All were uttering this peculiar sound, reminding ono of an army of soldiers moaning over tho death of their general, when through a gato a negro pushed a wheelbarrow, heaping full of all kinds of traah and slopa^-con- sisting of fruit pealings, vegetables, meats, bones and bread. As ho hove in sight tho scene among tho 'possums reminded one of feeding time in a menagerie. The little .ugly animals screamed and scratched and hit at one another until the negro had scattered tho contents of tho wheelbarrow over tho ground. Then, although it waa well Bcattored, all wanted to eat iu one place just like hogs, and there was considerable 1 more scratching and biting. But this did not last long, for the rations were soon consumed by tho great drove of 'possums, and they commenced to disperse, seemingly , contented, and thie time climbed the persimmon trees. 'During tho persimmon season'the 'possums aro not fed at all, for it is on this fruit they become rolling fat and ready for market.

Pigeon flying is cii" of tho drli^hts of tho Bluch country, and »• Birmingham, Eng., pajr !r gives u curioiw ui-contit of it. It is n, pnHsipn with tho workingmen, and it taken HUIIIG of Ihoin completely away from their work ' With the majority, however, it ia no more than tho ordered pastimes of the firat day of" the week. It haa developed quite u now branch of railway trallic in the district. It is tho practice of (lycra to send their birds in baskets, addressed to the station master at a particular station, with the request that he will release; them, mark on the label the time they were released and return tho basket. What is most singular is that this ia regularly done. An important trafHc hits grown up in this way, with n tariff for pigeon baskets and returned empties. Railway companies at first set their faces ngiUnst it, but finally took a more enlightened view of their own interests and of the wanta . of their customers. -They were probably Influenced by the consideration that the officials rather liked the work. In cloudy weather porters have been known to* feed birds three days before setting them free. The only inconvenience is that, where a bird fails to reach his destination, tho obliging ollicial is sometimes accused of being "(?ot nt" by n rival flier. This suggests a certain demoralizing tendency in the pastime, and the suggestion may be confirmed, by-the revival of a well worn anecdote. An aged penitent,..who iuui[loved pigeon fjjing not wisely but ux> well, was assured by his ghostly comforter or) his death becl, that they would both meet in a better place with win^s to their hacks. Tho dying man suddenly forgot his anxietiea in the ribald oflVr to "fly" the parson for a sovereign when they arrived. r • ABBREVIATED A th.'Huaiid Rmian Ji«wa Imv.i just sail«d from Odussu, Ku-iiiia, f»>r Ami.'iea.
