It ls now a leisure timo with tho farm

visiting muong their friends.
Wo hear lum! times talked about
Messrs. Editors, pienso allow mo tc
say, in my judgment, that those who an
complaining about hard times aro ro
sponsiblo for tho hard times in a large
mensuro. Hard times havo been talked
up so much by sumo of our best mon
that men think really that it is hard
times, when they know nothing about
hard times. Von take a well mau and
lot everybody say, "Look here; what'I
tho matter with you? Havo you boon
sick? You aro looking pale." It WOllM
be long until you will seo this man frc
quently boforo tho mirror and ho will
lose onoigy and really boliovo thoro If
something the matter with him.
There aro quite a number of our poo
plo who aro not giving our county rend?
justice. Wo lind a great many who arc
condemning our county roads make
this assertion without tho fear of con
trndiotion: "Our roads havo been won
dorl idly improved for tho past foui
years, c.spocially all the market roach
aro in good condition." Tho publie, roadi
in the rough mountain country are in :
hotter condition than they havo ove:
boon boforo. lt's truo they aro not muk
lng quito aa many changes this year ai
wore made last year. Ono mistake wi
mako is trying to got everything cheap
Wo hoar a great many people who ari
not in oflieo complaining of high salarie
and hear mon who are not in tho Legis
latino saying what kind of laws shoub
bo enacted, and how our county govern
ment should bo managed
We sro glad to know that our count;
lins improved wonderfully for tho pas
few years, especially in citizenship.
Our little towns-Walhalla, Sonoc
and Westminster-have been improviii;
tepidly for tho past few years for Mi i
mountain country-tho reason why
claim that the times aro not as bard a
arc represented. Wo will admit til
times are bard with sonic who havo nc
been true. Tho average poor man ca

however considerable ; no energy,
however great, is illspeut which is

man judges our heart by our face.

tho face, thou, and thc heart will
look after itself. (Much cheering.)

there is fashion. .Man may rule tho

by tho commotion to dab another

and abuse of man. (Tho attention
was so concentrated that a jun would

SOLID WALLS OF WHEAT.
Hvo Thousand Acros ol Golden Grain on Ono
Ranch In Oklahoma.
Oklahoma's largest whoat lloltl lies
a Tow milos West of tho small rail
waystation of Bliss, in Kay county.
It contains 5,000 acres, and holongs
to tho noted ranch "101" whioh con
trols 16,000 acres of land leasod from
tho Ponca Indians. Two hundred
mon, more than throe hundred mules
and horses and twenty-four big
twine binders wore employed in ont
ting and shocking tho grain grown
on this magnificent fiold this yonr,
and it was not instil last Sunday, with
nu army of laborers working night
and day for ton days, that tho last
nore was harvestod.
Every prinoiplo of good farming
was observed in cultivating thio big
fiold, with tho result that tho total
Output will not be less than 100,000
bushels of as good whoat as can bo
found in Oklahoma, It is CBtiuiatcd
that tho average aero yiold will bo
from 20 to 25 bushels. There aro
many acres that will run frow 40 to
50 bushels. Buyers havo already
offered GO cents a bushol for tho on
tiro crop. It is probable that tho
ownors will got from (50 to 70 cents,
a gross sum of $05,000 or *70,000.
Tho cost of producing this whoat
and putting it on board oars will bo
'25 cents a bushol, leaving a not profit
of about $25,000.
Wheat was king in tho Strip last
week, and its importance oolipscs
everything else on ran?n "101."
Numerically, a 500 aoro wheat fiold
is not very impressive To ride
over it, howovor, in blazing sunshine
is to give riso to tho fooling that it
covers tho faco of thc earth. Tho
5,000 aorcs of whoat on ranch "101"
aro divided into two fields of almost
equal size by tho Sall Fork River, a
stream that pours down a largo vol
umo of water at III?B timo of year.
Great yellow undulations of grain
swept along tho river and then away
toward tho distant lulls, until they
seemed to reach tho sky. It was so
far across thc fields that tho shocks
looked like a solid wail of whoat.
hi .t hc field on tho South sido of tho
river ti.a first circuit with a bindor
was made bjrRuj, trtntondont Miller.
"There was not ilYoan who could
guess how long it would tako Hfitx trx
make tho round," said bc. "I piled
a supply of twine on my bindor and
started. It was almost dinner time
when 1 got back. I was gono four
hours and traveled six miles."
The distatv.es aro 80 groat on tho
ranch that it is impossible for tho
men to turn in at one place for their
meals. Tho loss of time would
amount to hundreds of dollars in a
season. Accordingly camps aro
established at different stations, gen
erally close to a stream, whero tho
mon live in tents and thc moats^are

Ovor tho lino, in Ohio county, says an
oxchango, a mau named Millor married
a widow who had a grown-up daughter.
His fatbor foll in love with tho stepdaugh
ter. Tho fathor became tho son's son-in
law, and tho stepdaughter bocamo hi;,
mothor. Recently tho son's wifo had a
child. The child was Miller's father's
brother-in-law and Millor's own ttnolo, for
ho was njhrolhor of his stepdaughter. Mil
lor's father's wife-his stopmothor-also
had a son, who was, of courso, Millor'a
brother, and incidentally Millor's grand
Child, for ho was tho son of Millor's
daughter. Thus Millor'sc.'x wifo was
his mothor's mothor, and Ml?hv bocamo
lils wifo's grandchild at tho same timo.
And thon, to top tho whole thing off, ns
ho was tho husband of his grandmother,
