M Y HUSBAND.
Who took me from my childhood's home,
And said he'd love me ali alone,
And for my sacrifice atone ?
Woo grumbled at the poor beefsteak,
And bade me better coffee make.
And told me greater care to take?
. My husband.
Who swore because the baby cried,
And to the spare room quickly hied
While I to quiet vainly tried?
Who tears the buttons o if bis shirt,
And said T could those ills avert
If I was more on the alert?
Who bade me rise the fire to make
While be another nap should take.
Although Td been all night awake?
Who, when I ask for half a crown,
Knit? up his brow into a frown
And asks me " Where's the other gone?"
And when I see my mother dear,
Who tries my lonely lot to cheer
Who says she's dreadful, dreadful queei?
Who stays ?.way till late at night.
And then comes home so very tight
That nearly I expire of fright?
Who breaks the china, slams the door.
Leaves h Ls clothes all over the floor.
And swears it's all a dreadlhl bere?
And who do I. for his dear sake,
Of every sacrifice partake
Lest I his confidence should shake?
My husband ?
A Big Farm?
The Greeneeboro Home Journal,
turning its attention to practical
matters, has an article descriptive of
the agricultural enterprises of Mr. T.
W. Powell, of Greene county, a young
man who'belonge to the new genera
tion. Mr. Powell is farming in con
nection with Mr. John Davenport,
who is also a youngman, and, together
they control and plant thousands of
aeren. Last year Mr. Powell gathered
thirty-six thousand bushels of small
grain and ten thousand bushels of
corn. In addition to this, he had
four hundred acres in small grain
which he was unable to gather. This
would have averaged fifty bushels to
the acre, running his crop up to sixty
six thousand bushels of small grain.
His fertilizers consisted wholly o?
composted manure. He did not use
last year, nor will he use this year, a
single pound of commercial fertilizers.
He uses with his stable manure Ger
man kainit and acid phosphate. He
uses two hundred pounds of the com
post to the acre, and finds the result
Mr. Powell also engages in stock
raising. He has seventy head of
horses and mules, forty brocd mareB,
and about fifty head of cattle. He
thinks it is more profitable to raise
\ mules than cows. A mare can be
pastured the same as a cow. A mule
colt will in two years fetch from $75
to $125, while a calf would be worth
$15 or $20. These are Mr. Powell's
figures ; but a Jereey calf would be
worth more than a mule colt.
The forage used by Mr. Powell ?6
Bermuda grase, the grass which the
farmers of Middle Georgia have re
garded as * pest. He regards it as
the farmers' salvation. He was ad
vised to kill it out, especially in
Oglethorpe county, where he has a
farm; but one day he carried his
mower over there and cut fifteen
thousand pounds of hay from three
acres, and then his neighbors opened
In Greene county he has a pasture
of SO acres sodded in Bermuda grass.
He made three cuttings from these
thirty acres. The first he saved, the
freshet swept away the second, and
the third was ruined by mud; but
the first cutting yielded enough hay
for seventy head ot cattle.
The Powell-Davenport farm is
managed by bueine?s men. Every,
thing is systematized. The result of
thi?is that of the $35,000 dollars
made on the farm last year, twenty,
five thousand dollars is clear profit.
There is a moral in all this somewhere
and we leave the agricultural readers
of the Evening Newe to work it out
to their own satisfaction.-Augusta
Camion to Farmers*
John Smith, says the Christian ]n
telliqencer, buys a new patent reaper
or mower, and before he has cut the
erop of one field with it, he is notified
that its patent is contested, and that
he is liable to a penalty for using it.
Bather than have a lawsuit on his
hands he pays the royalty asked by
the contesting firm, and is lucky if he
have not to pay three or four times
more before he is done. The same
is the case with nearly every sort of
labor-saving contrivance which a ?
farmer is likely to buy. The claimants
under contesting patents do not fight
each other in the courts, but make a
much more profitable revenue* by
fleecing each other's customers. A
bill how on its way through Congress
will put an end to this. It compels
tho owners of patents to secure redress
from the makers and sellers, and not
from the buyers of articles which
infringe those patents, enacting that
itfcfcdl be sufficient defence for the
latter to show that they bought th*
article in the open market.
Dr. J. N. Cook, a skilled veterinary
surgeon asserts that a simple fracture
can be cured very easily and it is
worth the trouble if the horse is worth
say sixty or seventy-five dollars. The
great trouble is to get a horse to stand
still. The best way is to put the leg
in plaster of paris and thus make
the horse stand perfectly still so far
as the injured limb is concernid It
will'then knit together in about two
weeks. A horse's bones will knit
very nearly as quickly as a human <
Core for Chlckec Cholera.
Several experiments, writes Mr.
W. H. Griffin, of Zanesville, Ohio,
have made during the past five years
by different parties for The purpose
of preventing the .spread of chicken
cholera by inoculation or vaccination.
We have duriDg the past two years
vaccinated the fowls in nineteen dif
ferent yards where the cholera was
prevailing badly, and in each case
we left common fowls not vaccinated
and they all died. But of the two
thousand vaccinated only eleven died,
although they were in the same yard
with those not, vaccinated that were
all dying by the score. We have ev
ery reason to believe that this chick
en vaccination is as effective in pre
venting cholera among fowls as vac
innation is in preventing small pox
among the human family. Vaccin
ate a hen and in eight days her sys
tem will be thoroughly inoculated ;
then cut off her head and catch all
the blood in some vessel, then pour
the blood out on paper to dry. A
half drop of-this blood is sufficient to
vaccinate a hen, and the blood of one
hen will vaccinate your whole flock.
Catch the fowl you wish to vaciuate
and with a pin or knife make a scratch
on the thigh, (juet enough to draw
bleed,) then moisten a little piece ot
t?e paper with the cmed blood on
and stick it on the chickens leg where
you scratched it ; then let the fowl
run and yen need have no fear aa to
the chicken cholera. As the result
oi my many experiments I have now
dried blood enough, I would suppose,
to vaccinate ten thousand fowls, for
wbich I have no use as I do not sell
patent medicines. If any of your
readers are enough interested in poul
try to try this preventive, by writing
to me I will send free of any charge
enough dried blood to start with. All
I ask is that you sen ! immediately
before the blood loses ita strength
and report the result of experiment
to your many readers.
Bine Grass Pasture*
Grasa is the chief source of profitable
stock growing. The west has devel
oped a wonderful success in blue
grass, where proper care ie taken to
get it well established, but even then
we must "give the grass a chance,"
and not to overcrop it, which is the
trouble on small'! farms-the grass is
so easy to feed off and ie always i o
such great demand, few farmers have
grass enough for the stock then the
little they have suffers in conse
Blue grass, is oui standard meat
producing grass, and ie the cheapest
and best feed a farmer can have for
any kind of stock. It makes the
best meat, and if abundant makes
rapid growth of boue and muscle, aa
well as the laying on of fat, and it i?
the healthiest feed for all kinda of
stock. Blue grass never becomes
tough except the seed stalks, no mat
j tar haw long it w pormittcd ?kt grow.
If it ia cropped short, the groan ! be
! comes dry and bak?d and produce.
little or no pasture. We have aeen
! thousand of acres made almost per
fectly worthless in this way. Cattle
are turned on it, before il gets high
enough to show green, and it being
sweet and tender and overstocked, it
is kept in this condition all summer.
Stock should not be turned on it un
til the grass is well started, and is
.high enough to shade and keep the
soil moist and mellow. And then
limit the stock EO that they will not
at any period in the season cut it
short enough to expose the surface of
the soil to the fun. Thus protected
the land ie'aine its moisture, and
produces an abundant crop of the
best grass for stock the whole year
Other grass may be eaten short t"?
keep it tender, but not so with blue
grass. The farmer who knows how
to treat hie blue grass prefers it to
any other, and it will produce more
food than any other grasa. And the
main thing to observe is not to keep
too much stock for the pasture.
SUCCESS ;N* GRAFTING GEA PE
VISES.-The president of the Ontario
Fruit Growers' Association says :
"The secret of success in grafting the
grape lies in one essential requisite of
lifting the vine before grafting, and
when the operation is performed of
setting it back again. This checks
the flow of eap ; which otherwise
drowns the graft."
The Gardner and .Horticulturist
advises against pruning evergreen
hedges with perpendicular sideB and
Hat tops, but recommends instead a
pyramidal form crslopeing sides. It
has been found by long experience
that the latter form of pruning pro
duces a healthier growth and inauree
a long-lived hedge.
PLANS POR THE YEAR.-System
contributes to success in farming as
well as in other pursuits. To reach high
success it must be adopted in farm
operations. Plan?, for the year's
work should now be determined and
al! arrangements made that can be
for fully carrying them out.
Decided steps ought to be taken to
cure a Cold or Cough at once. We
Bhould recommend Dr. Buli's Cough
Syrup. This valuable medicine is

A woman who really loves a man

W. D. JENNINGS, M. D.
He commeuced the study of Medicine
in tho early part of tho year 1S3S, under
Dr. Abner G. Teague, and daring the
winter of 183S-39, he took an Anatomical
and Dissective Course of Lectures in the
City of Charleston, 8. C. In August,
1839, he entered the Medical Collego at
Lexington, Ky., whore he took a full
course and graduated in March, 1841,
with much distinction, having tnnstered,
with great facility, thc intricate science
of Materia Medica.
He then returned to Kdgelleld, S. C.,
and entered into a full copartnership
with his former preceptor, Dr. A. G.
Teague, who was tuen engaged in a large
and successful practice in Edgefield and
adjoining counties. Dr. J KN NIX os.
through his energy and knowledge of
Medicine, soon rose to great distinction
as a Physician, and by his own untiring
exertions accumulated a handsome for
After the surrender, Dr. J ns NINGS har
ing lost all his property except his lands,
as a soquel to the war, he sought the
West, in order to tr}* and regain some of
his lost tortune, and settled in Galveston,
Texas, where he entered into the Drug
business, in connection with his prac
tice, and was very successful, especially
during the great epidemic ol the Yellow
Fever which raged with so much de
struction in I Sofi.
In the fall of lSGu, the Medical Insti
tute of Galveston was reorganized and
Dr. JENNINGS was elected ono of the Pro
fessors, to lill thc Chair ol' Diseases of
Women and Children, which he lilied
with so much ability, that in the Spring
of 18C7 he was elected Dean of the Fac
ulty, which was considered the highest
honor that could have been conferred on
any member of the Faculty.
Late in the summer of 1867, business
called h;m to his old home in Edgeiield,
S. C., and lmdiug that it was impossible
for him to return to Galveston, he was
forced to tender his resignation ?is Pro
fessor and Dean ol' the Galveston Medi
lie again resumed his practice at Edgt
iield Court House, which he has diligent
ly pursued ever since. Arid during the
40 years of his practice bellas been using,
with much success and bntisfaction, one
of the priucipsl ingredients of the He

ago he completed the composition ol' his
valuable Liver Medicine, which has giv

questionable superiority over all oth- rs,
whenever used, for any ?md all diseases
caused by a Torpid or Diseased Liver.
It is not a Patent Medicine, hut the re
