From Mississippi Utter From Mr. II, '. Tolle Lake, MIHi.(fiippI, September 8 08 Editor ViIette: We read your vacation notes with interest and I ho next time you take a trip w hy not come to Mi.sHi.it ijipi where every prospect pkassa (that ie, almost every prospect ) When you awk-el for letters from "far-away Highlanders" we decided to wait till wo had been here a year, and then we ! could write with more knowledge of the ins and outs of life on an old plantation down in Dixie Land. We are living on the "Ole Manna Riley" plantation of 510 acres which "he-fo do wah" was seemingly the pride 'of this community, but since that time has "done plum gotit) to random," as my friend Uncle Ike told me. He, with "00 negroes, was a slave on thjs place, and "dem was times what sure was times," for 'de quarters" which were in a meadow south of our house consisted of 27 houses on one side and 27 on tho other of an overseer's house. A neighbor told mo the other day that he visited here on Christmas years ago and Mr. Riley went out and brought in a big basket of figs. There are only a few small bushes left now, however. As there has been no stock law here till this last year, everything that could be destroyed, has been. Whea we first talked of buying this place, everyone said, "Well there must be something the matter or you could not get the land so cheap." We were also told by Southern people that the greatest drawbacks were the poor roads and negro help and wo find that it is even so. We have a neighbor. Northern people and German, who have four grown boys and two girls, so they do not depend at all on negro help as they all work in the fields. They have been here four years on a plantation which like ours and many here, had "gone to random." And I always wish that any who doubt that anything can be raised here, could see what this family has done in 'so short a time. Positively these people can raise anything and in such abundance and such excellent quality. The soil is exceedingly productive. Our farm is more of a stock farm. We have about fifty head as a small beginning. The people here are nice and refined and more than hospitable. They are fifty years behind the times how ever in farming. They came from all around to see Harry's disc cultivator and harrow, etc. Some of them even ventured to risk getting a cultivator and are delighted with it. As for this being a healthful place I suppose people here have nearly all the ailments that people have else where, although we have had perfect health since we came. The old doctor who has practiced in this neck of the woods for over 30 years says he has never had a case of typhoid. This shows, I think, that our water supplv is all right. This climate is certainly delightful not over two or three uncomfortably warm days thi3 summer and always that cool refreshing Gulf breeze. When we are in the shade we are never too warm. And this certainly is a beautiful place. I have never seen a more beautiful one and I have been to California twice. The people here are anxious for Northern people to move in and they certainly have extended to us the "glad hand The bad roads can be remedied and it is being done. And we have three sons coming on in the dim and distant future as helpers for Harry in the field.

Dr. I'ieree's i'leasant Pellets Invirorata aud regulate stomach, liver and towel pounded into them from time immemorial that they are "nothing but a nigger no-how" and act accordingly. A little boy six years old was over here the other day -playing with the boys and I heard him say: "New Corning, you and Joe be niggers and I'll get a gun and chase you-all and kill you." You have heard of the pure feud law: we have had interesting examples of it here, and, too, there are horse thieves here as, I see by the Vidette you have even in Doniphan county. The sheriff rode up to our nearest neighbor's last week and mistook the hired man for a horse thief he was looking for and shot at him five times, missing him . however. A few days later, having found out his mistake, he sent over his apologies. Our boys will probably show they are from the South when I come home on a visit for I heard Corning say, "Do you rekon that hen will get out?" and Joe replied, "She's done got out now." And only think when I come home I will step off the train at the Depot under a brilliant arc light, and walk up those new cement walks, and as I gaze on the new University buildings in the citified park of a campus, I will remark, no doubt, "Why I used to live in this town away back in the pioneer days before there was even a railroad." Harry ' preaches every two weeks at a school house near here the people are building a church for him. We like it here and think it a fine place for poor folks to get them a fine home.
