A Judicious planter.
--The Shreveport (La.) Southwestern
learns that a planter of Bossier parish
has on hand a plenty of last year's crop of corn to last until January; that he has made enough corn this season to last him two years; that during the past summer he has sold several hundred pounds of well-smoked and salted hams, sides, and shoulders, besides a quantity of lard, and did not buy a single barrel of pork for plantation use. He thinks that next winter, besides retaining an ample supply for home consumption, he will be able to sell two or three thousand pounds of pork or bacon.
