The Happy former.
Have you ever took ? plissant stroll
over the farra with a real prosperous
farmer about this time bf tue year? J.f
yon have, yon have never felt better
over a little entertainment io your
day a. When X say a prosperous far
mer 1 do not mean tho exclusive or
almost exclusive cotton grower! I
mean the man that farms like a real,
full-blooded, unadulterated farmer.
This prosperous farmer, about this
season of the year, will lead you
around to view the excellent plowing
he is doing; ne will want you to see
how deep the plows have been going
down, and how smooth and even the
email grain and erasa lands have been
made with bia improved Implements;
he is admiring the noe stands of the
amati grain, clovers, lucern and tur
nips, and is comparing tho prospects
? cf tba outcome o? nts teat between the
I trench-drilled oats and the smooth
t broadcast sown wits, all now showing
vigorous growth io the contest for good
"graf t" upon, ' tho land before the try
ing winter upheavals may come
alo?g. . \
Tho big--ye)low hinter pears ara
vicing ; wita tho red winter apples
for the prizes of both beauty and lus
cious davor, while the ox-eyed daises
and goldeu rods are making cautious
bows .to each other, that are no kin
whatever, to the courtesies shown to
each other by the cotton buyers.
Upon hill and dalo every where on the,
farra at this season of the year are
myriade of the smaller autumn flowers,
-richly colored yellow, red, purple
and green leaves-that lend enchant
ment to the scene, while the dazzling
evening aun drives ont of the whole
florat of the earth the autumnal zepha
that is heaven-like. ',
; This happy farmer of ye olden
time?, cn his tread'homeward in tbe
evening as ' the sun goes down, does
not nervously hasten to find out how
cotton pricer are ?olnr. today, aa if his
life-and that of his family, too-de
pended upon the price of cotton, hut
he will lead you around by the barn
yard, and wa?eb:t?s cows come homo
Waddling along with their fall udders,
v?nd listen, to the quaek and cackle of the
poultry, the sq neal of the, fat shoats,
and the neigh of th? frolicing colts and
olate of ?he prise calves.
Th? last load of corn for the day is
topped off with golden pumpkins,
walle tho cotton' xs stored away in the
I?atead of; rushing away, night
and day, over each : other Just to see
v7ho can got rid of the stuff first,
. Th? conversation in the evening
around the fireside is not so much
about cotton futures ss about the fu
ture prospects of thar ??gy-cheeked
daughters and the raddy, manly sons.
Thia kind of farmer does not lay awake
at night studying over the problens of
fhdldingr his cotton; and at the same
tima raise money to pay bis bills for
store cora, meat and store nay. That
he already, has in his houses in shun;:
dance* This farmer does not under
tako io mn a raerciintile farm without
the necessary capitaK l>y purchasing
many products at high rates that grow
out of the ground on the farm to pro
duce only one crop that requires a
business qualification and tact not of
ten ; found in the " ordinary farmer.
This independent farmer is a co-work
er with nature, and is close to nature's
LJod. Ho ia moro independent and has
lesa to worry h'\m ?hon a king, and
there is no. one above him in hts huai-,
nose save Him : unto who all desire to
' look, for supreme counsel. _

-~It ia not uncommon for a dia
mond to explode soon after it reaches
the surfaoe; some hev? been known to
burst io the pockets of the miners or
when held in the. warm hand, and the
losa is the greater because large stones
are more liable to explode or fly in
pieces than small ones, says the. Lon
don Chronicle. ' Valuable stones have
been destroyed in this way, and it is
whispered that cunning dealers are
not! avers* to allowing responsible
clients to handle br carry in their
warmpookots large erfstsls fresh from
the mine. By way of safeguard
against explosion spine dealers imbed
large diamonds in raw potato to in
sure saf? transit to England.
