dred acres, to 121L lianium, Esq., who
has converted it into "smiling fields of
waving grain." Unfortunately Mr.
Itanium was awny and we were unable
to obtain such items of statistical infor
mation as we desired. Knowing some
thing of the zeal and persistent energy
with which he conducts all his a flairs
we were not disappointed in seeing
everything thoroughly well done, not
onlv with reference to the present gain
from his farm, but with equal deference
to its permanent fertility. It isouropin
ion, however, thatif he had used south
ern on western feed for ins live or six
acres of fodder corn he would have re-
aliseda greater profit from itand perhaps
have entertained a more favorable opin

Mr. Barnum lias quite a dairy, if we
recollect aright 45 cows, and has recently
in company with three others of the
progressive farmers of Milton introduced
a very valuable herd of Ayrshire?. "We
have a very considerable acquaintance
with the best herds of Ayrehires in this
country, and we do not recollect having
een betteranywherc. Of the three years
old bull Hero we probably cannot say
more in commendation than that he has
been kept for three years as the only
stock getter of that very popular firm
Messrs. J. P. and T. A. Dawes, of La
chine, P. Q., and they consented to part
with him only because of his relation
ship to several of the best members of
their herd, and their having imported
directly from Scotland, a successor. Of
the other individuals of the herd Mr. B.
liasa cow and three calves, Mr. Alson A.
Herrick a cow and one calf, Mr. Charles
Osgood a cow and a two years old bull,
and M. Joseph B. Bobinson a cow.
Though thus distributed we understand
the ownership is still joint. For the
cow "Whitcy" kept at Mr. Herricks
they were recently offered a certain bank
divided amounting to five hundred and
twenty-eight dollars, which was not
deemed a sufficient consideration to in
duce them to part with her.
Of these animals it should he remark
ed that although possessed of all the pe
culiar characteristics of the breed they
are not in poins of size or in any other
particular one whit behind the best of
other breeds kept in this section of the
country. That they are as large as the
beef breeds of the West is not claimed
of them. They have been bred with re
ference to their milking qualities, but
how the prevailing fallacy in regard to
their size has obtained is a mystery.
There are three cheese factories in
town, one half a mile south-east from
the depot, one three miles south in the
Mars neighborhood, and one at "the
River" or West Milton. They are all
fitted up in the best manner with the
best apparatus, and have thus far met
the expectations of their projectors,
though as this is the first season the ex
periment cannot be said to be sufficient
ly perfected to give absolute results.
They have the milk of about two hun
dred cows each. The best arrangement
for feeding hogs that we have ever seen
is in use here, but saw no really
fine hogs, though there are some heavy
Ve believe that there is as much im
iniprovement to be made in the swine
as in the cattle or Milton.
We could not but deprecate the waste,
particularly around the cheese factory
hog pens of matter that might, at a
Blight expense, be made available for
fertilizing the sandy lands of which
there is a very large proportion all
through the town. If instead of endur
ing the stench or attempting to stifle it
by use of costly deodorizers they would
use for obsorbents the marsh mud and
muck of which there are inexhaustible
supplies near by, both results would be
secured at a profit instead of an unre

the hill, and plaster and ashes both in

at 'the Biver" and they appreciate the

ThviUiixj Adveiiiufc iriih a Jiatth-
Last Monday morning, Mr. Richard
Bennett, a student, who is enjoying a
summer vacation at his fathei's well ap
pointed mansion, a short distance south
west of Dubuque, took a volume of Ten
nyson's poems in Ins hand and wander
ed out to repose beneath some rocks
which extended a grateful shade, and
also feast his soul upon the poetical
truths and beauties breathed forth bv
the poet laureate. He llung himself
down upon the-grass, and was soon lost
in contemplation of king and princess.
shady grottoes, summer bowers, and en
chanted land, until overcome by the
themes presented and the warm weath
er, he fell asleep.
now long he lav thus lie knew not. it
might have been for hours, but he was
suddenly awakened by a peculiar rust
ling noise close behind him. Instinct
ively he turned his head to the point
from whence thesound proceeded, when
no oeneid a sight which lroze him with
horror, and which he, if an ordinary
man, will not be apt to forget until his
lying day. There, not four feet from
him, coiled up as if ready for a spring,
with his head erect, eyes darting lire,
and tongue playing like forked lightn
ing from the bosom of the clouds, was an
enormous rattlesnake, over eight feet in
length. It would be hard to describe
the feelings of Bennett at that moment.
r resh and vigorous, in the springtime
of life, the world with its dazzling fu
ture before him, hardly a stone's throw
from his father's house, death, in its
most terrible form had apparently come
upon him. His presence of mind did
not desert him. however, and he lav
perfectly motionless, fixing his eyes up
on those of his snakeship, and waiting
ior new developments.
mis appeared to suit the latter. Gra
dually he relaxed his menacing attitude.
and lowering his head, commenced to
crawl slowly toward Bennett, at the
same time emitting a low, murmuring,
singing sound, which the imnromntu
hearer describes as having been reallv
delightful. Nearer and nearer came the
snake, Bennett remaining perfectly
motionless, not daring to move for fear
of the terrible fangs, until finally the
monster actually crawled over his legs.
and nestled down by his side like a pet
kitten, as much as to say he was well
pleased with his new companion, and
would forego hostilities. Here was a
dilemma, and how to get out of it was
the difficulty. While Bennett was specu
lating as to how this could be done, and
sevolvingovera thousand plans, a neigh
bor chanced to pass along, who compre
hended the whole situation at a glance,
and at a mute gesture from Bennett,
rushed to the house for assistance.
He piocured a rifle, and coming back.
nit the muzzle within two feet of the
lead of the serpent, and, with a steady
aim, pulled tho trigger. There was a
deafening report, and tho next instant
the snake was writhing in his death
agony, while Bennett bounded from the
round, and with the exclamation,
Saved! Saved!" fell fainting in the
arms of his prcservor.
Unjust Attack. In the course of a
recent speech at Leavenworth, General
Blair made the following attack upon
some gentlemen with whom he has re
cently been very intimately connected :
The secret of the adherence of Gon-
erals Grant, Sheridan, and other regu
lar officers to the Radical party, is the
tendency of that party, which has over
thrown the prerogatives of the Supreme
Court and Executive branch of the
Government toward military despotism;
which, being necessarily based upon
military;power, would give consequence
to prominent officers of the army."
To which the Now York Sun well
This is cxccedinclv uninsf fo mnn
whose patriotism, fidelity to duty, and
purity of motive can well bear com ti.ir i-
son with the highest qualities that have
ever been attributed to Gen. Blair.
Such officers as W. T. Sherman, Philip
cmv.-wu:ui, ueorgc 1. iiiomas, Geo.
Meade, and hundreds of r.tl
lower rank, but equally honorable fame,
do not gauge their political convictions
uy uieir personal interests, still less by
a latent love of military despotism. Thev
arc men of deep convictions, as tlmv
have proved by resisting the most bril
liant and powerful temptations that the
rebellion could offer. Gen. Blair's re
mark is a gratuitous insult to those who
were lately his comrades ; and although
it is not his habit to retract his impru
dent and wrong utterances, he ought in
this case to make an exception to his
rule, m the form of the most ample
apology which it is in his power to
