No ono in the Stato of Ohio had
been a more ardent supporter of Mr.
McKinley than Joseph Fitzgerald,
and every ono predicted that ho
would get a good position, in recog

Ile had been reared a country boy,
but carly developed a love for tho
mad infatuation of politics, and in
early life abandoned the farm and
sought tho excitement of city life.
He noon became a powor in thc poli
tics of his ward, and from this his
influence extended to thc entire
State. By and by his fame became
national, and a brilliant future was
predicted for thc rising young
At tliis period in his lite, whilo his
political star was in tho ascendant,
he won tho band s well as tho heart
of pretty Mabel Carter, one of the
fairest of Ohio's daughters. She,
too, fell under tho fascinating influ

into every scheme of her husband.
Sometimes ho neglected his busi
ness to play at the interesting game
of jioliticH, hut his wifo never chided
him, but rather lent encouragement.
When they had boon married two
years a tiny baby came to bless their
union, and tho son soon found a
warm placo in tho hearts of both
father and mother.
The business bad been neglected
so much ?Jiat it had to be abandoned
and ho was forced to depend on
"politics" for a living. Ho held a
position in tho State Legislature, but
this paid him very little, and bo was
compelled to eke out a living by
writing for tho newspapers. Ho was
a brilliant writer as well as an ac
complished orator. Nature had be
stowed rare gifts upon him, and men
gladly followed his leadership.
When the last national campaign
, was well under way he left his homo
and went into the hottest of the fray
for tho nominoo of his party. Prom
county to county ho went, and every
where his eloquent voico called poo

He was congratulated by the Presi

But tho next day ho found that
the throng had increased, and all his
efforts to sie McKinley were in vain.
Ho was told to call again. This he
did day after day until ho lost his
good nature and became irritable.
At last bo was ushered into thc
presence of Mr. McKinley, r.nd had

and saying :
"Mr. McKinley, 1 suppose you re

And thus it was day aftor day,
until at last, in desperation, ho told
tho President his irionoy was all gone
and he must have an oflicc. The
President's great, kindly heart pitied
the young man, and ho sat down for
half an hour's conversation with him.
Eloquently did he plead for wife
and child. With tears in his eyes
he told tho President that ho had

This had never ocourred to tho yornup

At a rccont meeting of the Georgia
State Agricultural Society Mr. F. J.
Merriam, who runs a hillside farm
near Atlanta, Qa., in tho course of
an interesting talk made tho follow^
ing statement :
If a man will study his ground "he
will lind it to bo fully as entrancing
as tho study of books. Through
marriage I booamo connected with a
small farm. With my brother-in
law 1 bioko ground in 1898 to moot
thc market demand? in Atlanta.
That year I made only $500, but tho
$115 whioh I roccived from 250 hills
of cucumbers convinced me that J- *|i
was on tho right traok. Tho next
year my sales wont up to $1,984.20.
I got $600 from ono aero whioh I had
planted in potatoos. The next yoar
(1895) I markotod $8,829 worth of
vegetables. This year I found let
tuce to bo tho best sollor, gotting
$791.40 on that article. It was in
1896, however, that I struck luok
and gainod tho final conviction tha^ .
there is money in tho land whon.tho
farmor studies his surroundings. In
that year I sold $5,008 worth of
stuff, of which $704.00 carno from
lottuoo, $583 from turnip salad and
$404 from beete. I -k^op "book
strictly and find that it costs mo ex
actly one-third of what I raiso to
pay tho necessary expenses, includ
ing repairs. In 1897 prices woro
lew and tho moro ordinary vegeta
bles wore in demand, but ovon undor
this stringonoy I made $4,788.60.
Of this $529.55 came from throe
aoros planted in tomatoes, $898.90
from beans and $329.55 from turnips.
In 1898 found tho markot still do
pressed, but I made that year $4,
794.20, of which $732.90 oamo from
turnip salad and $561 from collards.
This yoar, notwithstanding tho very
bad season wo had in tho spring
months, up to tho 1st of August 1
have sold $4,188.65 worth, $G00 of
whioh carno from ono aero planted in
oabbage, and I intend to pookot a
rou; id $10,000 this yoar out of my
Georgia soil under a systom of
deep plowing and thorough tillage ^.
will produce lino orops. Our rod,|
clay subsoils aro rich in plant food.,
Tho Georgia "Cropper" huB been
plowing for years down W'YV?KUXJK
called "tho hard," and tho saree hard
subsoil has boon absorbing all theso
? ears thc plant food from tho thin
layers of cultivated ground as it was
packed down by tho heavy rains,
until to-day it is roady by tho raagio
of modorn improved farming to yield
up its riches in orops that will aston
ish tho eivilizod world. Wo have
striking oxamplos of this in tho
farms scattered hore and there ovor
tho State, which appear like oas^s in
tho desert of surrounding barrenness.
Farms whore thrift is tho order of
tho day, and tho owner looks per
sonally after ovory detail, are objcot
lessons of what wo may expect whon
tho community at largo becomes bet
ter edueatod in modorn farm meth
ods. And tho fact that those suc
cessful mon aro still progressing,
that their crops aro growing largor,
thoir land richer and thoir not profit
at tho close of tho year shows a cor
responding inoroase, goos to provo
that no limit can bo placod upon the
productiveness of our soil and tho
woalth and prosperity, as an agri
cultural community, that wo may
finally aspire to.
