Your fodder crop is ?rt valuable
one, and you should bestow upon il
aslmuch care and attention as you do
your hay crop, and put it in the best
shape for your stock. Don't scatter
your wet and frozen fodder on the
cold and muddy ground, and have
your stock tramping your land to
death in wet weather, and eating
muddy fodder, then claim you are
taking good care of your stock, and
manuring your land*
<;A merciful man will bc merciful to bis stoek."
I Make your stock a Xmas gift of a
TOMADO Cutlet1 and Shredder
which will cut and split the stalk so that every
particle of the stalk will be eaten.
The TORNADO lias no equal as a straw,
shuck and hay cutter, and can easly be
turned into a root cutter.
In connection with these cutters we sell the

STAR MILL AND POW ER
Combined, which will grind your corn and run
your cutter at the same time.
If you are at all sceptical as to what these
machines will do, we refer you to the following
up-ito-date farmers to whom we have sold ma?
chines, and ask them if it is not best to feed
your cattle in the dry :

from he said, 'ho'el like to soe anybody

pretty independent, too. Yes, didn't
ono of the diviaion superintendents
down East discontinue one of the old?

road to havel on. Always has such a
splendid class of passengers.'

Engineers carry a power of steam, and

PRESERVATION GFJAAIESTOWN
Delegate Barley, of this city, has in?
troduced a bill in the Legislature to
preserve Jamestown, and appropriating
$10,000 to tba! object. That Indi
should pass. The Skate has little mon?
ey to spendj to bo sure, but for such an
object as that referred to she could well
ail'ord to spare a little, without obj. c
tton from any of her citizens. The
water of tho Jami s has already washed
away a large portion of tbe historic ia
land, and unless some means bo found
by which that washing can be speedily
stopped, the who}e of it may soon be
gone. In 1607 the landing in America

tho feeling at d sentinie-nt that, until
after tho war between the States,

and, indeed, it may be said, of most of
thos*3 of tho entiro South. Ibo people
of Virginia havo chauged. but tbe sits
of the landing of their English fore?
fathers and of their Colonial capital
should bo preserved, and certainly the

In Denmark a curious law provails

this 1 iw has been unequalled iu Mip

ROYAL AFFECI IONS.
Tho French Minister of Foieign Af?
fairs, it ia said, asked the King of Siam
why hs did not leave his foreign minis?
ter at horns to take charge cf toing:*.
??Because he ia my brother," returned
Chulalonokom, -with a grim smile; "I
should probably have found him on my
throne when I got back to Siam " '?But
you have your other brother with you."
"Yes, but his nature ia sven lesa I* e*
nevolent. Hs would not only havo
seized my throne, but cut off my head
as quickly as 1 returned." ?'You aU
seem on excellent terms together," ex?
claimed tbe sst -lushed Frenchman,
"Exactly," said the King, "and, as I
like to be on good terms with them, I
always take them song."
It is a big thing to aay but neverthe?
less true, that a greet multitude of
