STATISTICS OF FARM LABOR.-
An Intcicstliig Itetrospocl of tho Hates
of Wngcs l'nlil.
The Mny report of Mr. Dodge, statistician
of the Department of Agriculture, contains
the usual Information on tlic crops and a
variety of other interesting matter, includ
ing n tcrics of valuable tables on tlic
wages of farm labor. The monthly rates
of wages, without board, for the present
year ore slated by sections as follows:
Southern States, $11.27; Western States,
$22,20; Middle States, SOWO; Eastern
Slides, $20.30; California, $39.75. Mr.
Dodge cites nn accepted estimate for 1830,
according to which the rnto of farm wages,
with board, was then $!) per month. In
lGGlt wnsSlO.GO, showing nn advance of
nenrly 70 per cent, in tlic intervening
This odvanco hod, however, cliiclly
taken place between 1MJI and I SOU, and
was in largo part nominal rather than
real, being partly due to the depreciation
of the currency. In the Eastern, Middle
ond Western States farm wages readied
their maximum in 1SWJ, but lu (be South
nnd in California they were higher in
tSWI than in any other year noted in .Mr.
Taking the llgures for Maryland wo llnd
Iho uoges wlih bunt il n little lower in
HOD than in lfCO, but the Wages without
board highest in the latter year. From
three dillci'cnl tables giving rates of wages
by States wo take the following data in
relation to our nearest neighbor, Mary
In tl.c following tabic the ilrst cross row
of llguies represents the roto of monthly
wages, with board, for tho several years
named; the second, monthly wages with
out bonid; tlic third, daily wage, with
board, in harvest; the fourth, dally wages,
viithout board, in liarvct; the fifth, daily
wages, with board, in other seasons; and
Hie sixth, daily wages, without board, in

By following any one of the above iincs
from left to right, wo may trace the decline
in wages from lbGO or IfcO'J, in the period of
inflated currency, to 1S70, the year of re
sumption, nnd the rise nflcr the latter
year. A somewhat similar result would
bo seen, if wo should trace the average
rate of wages for the entire country in tiio
ianie way, only in that case the marked
rite between 1882 and ISM, which is seen
in tho above table for Maryland, would
not appear. On a comparison of these
two years, in respect to monthly wages,
without board, there appears to linyo been
n slight advance between 1SS2 nnd 1883 in
the Middle States and in California, but in
the other three sections there lias been a
decline averaging about if 1.21 per month.
A statement us to the relation between
demand nnd supply nt the present time
shows that there is an unusual amount of
labor seeking employment in agriculture,
owing to the depression of the manufac
turing and most of the other non-agricultural
industries; yet there are many lo
calities in which, owing to thu low price of
produce or other causes, farmers are una
ble to pay tho prices neccsuary to secure
tho labor they need soon under present
circumstances. As n consequence many
farmers nre obi Iced to vary their crops, so
as to distribute the labor of the farm over
a longer season and thus make it possible
to do a larger proportion of their work
without hiicil assistance.
Others ngnin llnd themselves so hard
pressed that they or their sons linvo to
seek employment on tbo farms of their
wealthier ncighborsand .somonrcnbaiiilon
ing the attempt to farm on their own ac
count. This is especially Iho case with
farmers who have but little capital and
who are therefoio obliged to compete nlu
great disadvantage witli tbo-o who arc
rich enough to avail themselves of the bo-t
model u njiplinnccs in the cultivation of
CAL. BRICE'S FORTUNE.
How an Kiilorpi-lKiiig (Milium .U.ule Ills
About live years ago Brico wasn't worth
a dollar, now ho has made two or three
fortunes, lout enough to build thu now na
tional library, and has .53,000,000 left. Ho
is under forty, of medium height, wiry,
and, like .lerusah'iu, compactly built to
gether. He has blight eyes, red whiskers,
and a common-sense Democratic air. Ho
begun life as u young lawyer of Lima, and
Ids llrst railroad speculation was with the
strip of road which ran from Fremont to
Lima. Ho thought ho saw money in it,
mortgaged ids property, went to Europe,
interested sonio parties in it there, and
coining bade, with the aid of Charles Fos
ter, made a nice llttlo speculation out of
it. He netted, 1 think", about SOO.OOJ. His
next enterprise was the Ohio Central run
niugdown into the coal Holds, In this
lie lost his 00,000, and when ho had tin
ished it lie owed Foster SIU.OOO,
Foster hud eontldcnco in him, however,
and the two got their heads together and
ran a branch of tbo road into the Sunday
Cicck Valley coal Holds. Tills branch paid
so well tiint it redeemed the other, and the
result was that Brico paid oil' Foster and
had about 135,000 left. Then ho orig
inated the Nickel Plate, pn-dicd ilthrougli,
and, in connection with overal others,
made finm it $13,000,000. Since then ho
has been speculating in railroads and has
lost some money, but made more. Ho was
hugely interested in a road through East
Tcnnc-seoand (Jeorgia when the crush of
about n year and a half ago occurred. He
was absent in Europe nt the time, and ho
found matters lit a bad way on his return.
He lias since been straightening tlieni out
nnd putting the road into better shape.
Mr. Brico now lives in Now York. Ho has
a residence on Murray Hill for which ho
paid 25o,oeo, it is lllled with furniture,
bric-a-brao and pictures which liftvo cost
ii fortune. Ho has a very tinu library, is
fond of literature, and is it man of consid

A Mylish up-town Wedding,, which is to
tnkc place the first week In June, will be
the occasion for the carrying out of the
new craze for "rose weddings." White
rotes will, of course, be the exclusive
wear of the bride in her floral ndorulngs,
and the four attending bridesmaids will
variously telcct deep red, ten, pale pink
and the most delicate of yellow Florida
roses. The bride's dress Is a superb qual
ity of white Ottoman silk, so rich and
heavy that it will literally ''stand alone."
The train Is long, but not extravagantly
so, nnd tho handsome silk is made up in
combination with white brocaded velvet.
The bock of the toilet is cut n la princesso
and is made wholly of the silk, the rich
folds fulling in straight ttndrnpcd lines,
At the sides nre wide panels of thu while
brocaded velvet, framed with fan-plcnt-ings
of diiclicssc lace about six inches
dicp. The bodlco is cut out gimaro in
front and tlic opening is not veiled but
simply loec-edged, and, beginning at tills
square, is a plastron formed of loco pleat
ings mingled with those of silk, and this
trimming forms the entire front of the
restof the bodice, nnd the whole of the
skirt to its foot it tiny balnycuso of the silk
finishing hero. Tho sleeves ore elbow
length nnd (rimmed to correspond, with
fan-pleutlngsofsilk nnd lace, The veil
will be caught up at every possible point
with white roses -mid lounge, nnd the
corsage bouquet nt the belt nnd the coro
net nljovc tho waves ol hair and holding
the veil in place will nil be formed of these
cmhlciuutic white blossoms.
The bridesmaids' dresses will In every
instance be ninde of white Oriental net nnd
lace to correspond, but the silk princcsso
slips beneath will match the tint of the
roses which eaeli adopts. The dresses will
bo (lcnil-trulned nnd nil of an ennui
length. Tiio ugly tun-colored kid gloves
are to be tabooed on tills occasion nnd
each young lady will wear immensely
long Suede kid gloves matched to tho
color of her rose ndornlngs. The four
ushers will wenr boulonuicres of rose
buds, which follow in color and variety
the roses worn by the bridesmaids. The
bride's mother will wenr pale lilncsotlu
with point luce bertha, fastened with nn
untioue diamond brooch. A votiinror
sister will be attired in a short dress of
wliitc sitriih. simply kilted from belt to
hem, with a Uretchen bodice above worn
over n lncc gulinpe with short sleeves; n
very wide sash of llowcr-brocadcd satin
tied in broad loops at the back and fnli
ing in wido ends nearly to the bottom of
the skirt. The toilet to bo worn by the
groom's mother is n very elegant one of
blnek Lyons satin, the entire dress almost
covered with a mugiilllcent embroidery of
raised silk mid cut jet inline floral deigns.
I he groom's buttonhole bouquet will be of
