What an EdiUr Says of Spelling Re
form la Jearnallsm.
At the annual Convention of the
Spelling-Reform Association in Phila
delphia, on Wednesday, July 30, a pa
per on The Spelling Reform in Jour
nalism" was read by S. N. D. North,
of the Utica (N. Y.) Herald. The fol
lowing is an abstract:
If language, as the satirist says, was
given to man to conceal his thots, the
English speling must have been in
vented to prevent any thinking at al.
But if, as we beleve, language baa a
hier purpose and that the hiest pur
pose ooncevabl in a human invention
speling shares that purpose, for it is
the vehicl by which language is abl to
transmit and preserve human thot.
Speling can no more be fete red than
the language which it embodies, or the
mind that speaks thro the language.
Changes both of language and speling
are as lnevitaoi as tne development oi
the human race to which they bear
witnea. They ar dependent upon cir
cumstances; but they wil never cese
unulhumamty ceses to mov forward or
bakward. The development of lan
guage is beyond the reach of human
law; but its speung is a machinery witn
adjustabl parts, wholy within the con
trole both of law and reason. This As
sociation seeks to govern these changes
in speling; to direct and acselerete
them by tbe application - of scientific
method to the evolution which nether
prejndio, nor habit, nor a fixed litera
ture can permanently retard.
There is now but one serious impedi
ment in the way of the rapid introduc
tion of a reformed English speling.
The general acceptance, among those
whose opinion caries wate, of the ab
stract principles of the Speling Reform
Association, affords every encourage
ment to zelus perseverance. But, in
spite of it, the speling reform drags.
The dificulty, like that which confronts
the wud-be swimmer, is to take the
first plung. No man likes to 8 pel
foneticaly, while al his nabors are
speling with a dictionary at their el bo.
No publisher cares to dres his books in
reformed speling when his readers ar
still weded to deformed speling. The

Language and jurnalism hav a his

laws which govern the world's progres.
The jurnalist has seen his profesion de
velop In two centuries from a Qispised
and illicit pursuit into the forth estate
of the realm. -lunger than the En
glish language, Jurnalism has cot up
with it and pased it, as a sistem regu
lated and controled by scientinc pnnci
pies. Our printing preses are two hun
dred years in advano of our speling.
Printed language is subject to the same
arbitrary, acsidental, contradictory and
absurd rules which governed itsor

justified tbe censorship oi the pres;

In any calculation of the probabili

I he indirect in aueno of tbe pres, thro'
this constant occupancy of the public
eye, is vastly greter than its direct ef
fect upon the thot and opinion of the
world. Ahe indirect innuenc is largely
exerted upon tbe world's curent ver
nacular. Most of the changes in or
thografy during the last century have
come about thro' the pres.
Recaling what the pres has already done
for the English language in this respect
whether wisely or unwisely, this is
not the time to inquire it is safe to as
ert that the speling reform is a work
within the com pas oi its powers, and
that it is the natural agency becaus of
its wonderfuly intimate and reflex rela
tions to the people thro' which that
work must be accomplished. When
united pres has adopted the reformed
orthografy the problem is solved; for it
i j . . a . t . r . . . (

The pres of the United States -has
fixed habit of moving but a trifle faster
than the comumty wnicn sustains it.
Its induenc as an educating power is
doubtles brodened by this habit. Rec
ognizing the fact, why should not the
BDelintr reform seize unon that trill
and be thankful for it. in expectation
of beter things to oomr If the pres is
to be made tbe champion of the reform,
it must be permited to approch it by
sections, as the five rules approved by
the llological Asociauon propos."
The ' five rules,"- or orthographic
changes, approved by the American
Philological Association, are as follows
1. Omit a from the digraf ea when
pronounced as e short, as in hed, helth
2. Omit silent e after a short vowel
as in hav, giv, etc.
S. Write for p A in such words as
alfabet, fantom, etc.
4. When a word ends with a double
letter, omit the last, as in eg, shal, clif ,
6. Change erf final to t when it has
the sound of t, as in lasht, imprest, etc
Let this Association devote its ener
gies to the triumph of these five simpL
praoticabl methods of reform in speling.
and then mov onward to another and
yet another five rules. Thus hav all
reforms recbed their fruition. Thus ar
fixed habits conquered. Thus may tbe
most stalwart prejudices be roasted to
deth over a slo fire Thus, and in no
other way, is it possibl to secure the
powerful aliance of the newspaper pres.
J. here is no sound reason why every
iurnal in the land shud not at once
adopt the five rules and resolutely cary
them into the newspaper and job offioe.
Within a month from the change, every
constituency will be habituated to the
improvment, and, what is better, con
scious that it is an improvment. The
adoption of these five rules will be the
logical extension and systematization
of a habit which has long been groing
upon the pres. Every tendency in jur
nalism is towards a simpler typografy.
It has abolished the indiscriminate use
of the capital leters. One of Horace
-Greeley's familiar sentences, deformed
and bedizened with a ironuspeace on
every comon noun, is now a typografi
cal curiosity. There is a far less waste
ful use of punctuation marxs than cus
tom formerly dictated. Italics are ban
ished from the pres in. the same way
and for the same reason, becaus editors
are begining to realize that the force of
languag lies not in its appear anc to the
i. but in its meaning to the mind. The
reasoning is equaly good in its aplica-
tion to speling. .
It is years sine many of us first droped

and the only objection l ever herd rased
was advanced by a certain colej presi
dent, when urged to use the brefer form

and the words hp.ve ganed - a manly.
stratforward apearance from the elis
There is nothing in the five rules
more radical, more orthograncaiiy
outre, than are the changes eluded to
above. Why do we continue to carry
the ugly " ugh," like an old man of the
sea, upon the baks of our thorouqhs,
throughs, and borough f Long ago the
pepl of my county sanctioned its taking
off. when they permited the descend
ants of the fronders of the nrst village
planted on the hed-waters of the
Mohawk River to shorten up their
" Whitesboro." " so that the village
leter-riter mit hav time to reach the
mail before it closed. -Who will miss
the " ue" that the Spelling Reform
Asociation begs the newspaper to drop
from the rear of catalogue and dema
gogue, where the pair have been silent-
ly catching a stolen ride lor al these
generations? Why shod not the pres
be as ferce to ktk this intruding letter
k out of the alphabet as it is to drive a
thief out of public offic? ' Why must
we use a p and an h, when a singl is
beter than both? Why should we lon

able dubiet at every posibi oportunity r
All the world stops when it is thru
except the printer. - With him, as with
the witches, it is an endless " double,
double, toil and trouble" '
The pres need hav no fear that its
constituency will rebel against the
gradual introduction of tbe speling re
form. The cantakeros subscriber who
stops his paper becaus this or that
feture of its mechanical - arangement
does not suit him will doubtles be on
hand; but he must be discounted any
way. We may judg of the general

The average newspaper reder is the

cation and averag culture, employed in
other than literary pursuts, and prone
to forget the quixotic orthografy they

of their own that they slip in their spel
ing. Let us rather look upon it as a
disgrace to the English-spoking world of
the nineteenth century that it has per
mited itself to rech that century with

miles in width, and has been traced 200
miles in length, parallel with the Blue
Ridge. White, Lumpkin, and Haber
sham Counties embrace the richest de
posits, so far as now known, but the
limits of mining are gradually widen
ing. The presence of gold here has
been known from the earliest times.
Cherokee Indians were the occupants
of the territory when white settlement
first began, and they were accustomed
to seek the gold for ornamental pur
poses, and to dispose of it in barter to
less fortunate tribes. Evidences of
their mining still remain, but are in
significant. The methods adopted by
the first white settlers, and in vogue
until recent years, were very rude, con
sisting merely of washing out the gravel
of the beds of the streams by running it
through sluice-boxes and splint baskets
into a " gum rocker," which was noth
ing but a split and hollowed out log a
dozen or so fent in length. While the
water from the sluice-box passed
through this trough from end to end,
the rocker was kept in constant motion.
and the heavy gold, permitted to sink
to the bottom through the constantly
agitated silt, was caught by transverse
cleats, with or without the aid of mer
cury. It is said that the first piece of
gold ever taken in the United States be
longed to this deposit, and was picked
up in 1799 by Conrad Reed, a boy who
lived in Cabarrus County, North Caro
lina. It was as large as a smooth
ing-iron, but was sold to a - sil
versmith for - three dollars ' and
fifty - cents. Afterward much larger
lumps were found; one weighed twenty-
eight pounds, according to tradition-
This excited so much attention that ex
ploration was begun, and the gold
traced southward, until the borders of
the Cherokee territory in Northern
Georgia were reached, and prospectors
began to encroach upon the . reserva
tion, rrotests from the Indians natur
ally followed, and Georgia sent a large
police force to keep back the invaders.
but it was of uttle avail. The rush to
the mines was much like the stampede
to the racifio coast in 1849, and reck
less, dissipated men from all quarters
of the country flocked in, prowled about
the woods, set up log huts and shanty
groceries on all the streams, and paid
no respect to the rights of the Indian,
or any one else unable to defend them.
Even United States troops were power
less to keep the lawless hordes west of
the Chestatee, and here as elsewhere
the discovery of gold was the end of
Indian possession and aboriginal sim
plicity and charm. '
These days are known as the period
of the Intrusion" -e-one of the two'
dates from which the mountain men
reckon all events; the other being " the
late war." Finding that no protection
of the Indians by police measures was
feasible, the State in 1830 adopted the
Indians, territory and all, and consti
tuted the region a county called Chero
kee, out of which several small counties
have since been made. Then the min
eral lands were divided up into forty
acre lots, and out uo at lotterv bv the
State. One of these lots, on the Yahoola
River No. 1052 now a part of the
Hand Company's property, had already
become celebrated. It was within the
reservation,, but men used to creep
across to it at night, and carry home a
meal-bag full of dirt, out of which they
would pan from twenty to forty dollars
next day. The instant it was ascer
tained that an old farmer down in the
central part of the State had drawn
this prize, shrewd speculators set off
post-haste to buy it from him. . 1
It soon came to be found here, as
elsewhere, that gold was not to be
picked up in twenty-eight-pound lumps
every day, nor did every bushel of - soil
pan out a double eatrlc The worthless.
lazy, and dissolute majority of the early
horde of invaders gradually drifted
awav. while onlv the small minority .of
new-comers, whose accession was of
real value to the community, staid.
The population, like the dirt, was slowly
panned out, and the current of events
carried the dross away. At present the
mines are largely owned by corpora
tions, or by private capitalists who aie
not residents of the district. Only two
of the companies, however, are repre
sented in the JNew xork Mining Board,
if 1 am rightly informed. It was found
that as the gold occurred neither in ex
tensive placers, like those of California,
nor in indestructible quarts lodes, the
methods of mining in vogue elsewhere
would not answer here if the best results
were to be obtained. The inventive
genius and practical knowledge of those
interested were therefore set to work to
devise the best means of meeting the
case, and it was speedily found that the
talisman which alone would open the
riches of the hills to human use was
water. , bo far as this mere fact is con
cerned, it could hardly be called a
" discovery;" but the utilization of the
idea, and the practical methods by
which the enormous power of this nat
ural agent - has been put under the
miner's control, are the work of Colonel
Hand, to whom, more than to any one
else, no doubt, belongs the credit of the
splendid development oi this industry
during late years, and the glowing
prospects it now holds out. is men ln-
gersoU, in Harper's Magazine J or Sep
Harvesting In the West.
Any one of our farmers, with few ex
ceptions, who stands in a Western
wheat field of 2,000 acres for the first
time, witnessing the operation of har
vesting, cannot fail to be deeply im
pressed by the wonderful celerity with
which four or five men with machinery
and horses will reap, bind and stack
this immense piece of grain. These
four or five men actually do as much as
a hundred of their kind could . do with
the old-fashioned cradle" and the
straw band by hand, which is largely
used by our farmers even yet still they
have reason in part for it. because the
average field of wheat in Ohio is not
over twenty or thirty acres; few have
pieces of one hundred acres, and many.
a great many, do not sow .more than
ten or twelve, and it plainly would not
pay to purchase machinery for so small
an extent of work. One of the strange
fashions which mark the Western wheat
harvests is the peculiar class of people
upon whom the remote dwellers on the
frontier depend to aid them in gather
ing their grain. ' They rely first upon
the emigrants who come into the coun
try to settle subject to the homestead
laws, and, second, on the " wheat har
vest tramps." These "tramps" are
men who start in Texas and follow the
harvest North. Some keep on tbe line
of the . rivers, while others drive
in wagons . across the , country,
They work in Texas until her har
vest is sowed, then they strike for the
Mississippi River and there take a boat
North. When they reach a point where
the wheat has not been cut, there they
disembark and at once go to work.
Finishing here they go again further
North, so keeping on until Minnesota
is reached, ceasing only when the broad
fields of wheat on the Red River and
Dakota are cut. Other men of this
class get into wagons at the Rio Grande
and work right through North over
land. Hundreds and hundreds of their
white-tented vehicles - may be seen
forging through Kansas to-day. They
have cut the crop of Texas, they have
sowed that of Southern Kansas, they
are at work on those of Middle Kansas
to-day, and the eyes of the Nebraska
farmers are anxiously turned to the
southern horizon every evening, eager
ly looking for the wnite-topped wagons
of the ' Bohemian harvesters, who are
the very best of harvest hands, and
soon, when they have finished their
season's work - among the purple hills
of Dakota,, they will disappear just as
the wind listeth. What revelations our
improved machinery of the harvest is
yet destined to work upon tne vase
wheat -fields of Southern Russia and
Roumania! where the immense aggre
gate yield is nearly all gathered at a
frightful expenditure and waste of
physical toil with rude reaping hooks
and scythes, threshed out by the clum
sy flail or trodden out by the hoofs of
cattle let with ail of these bungling
customs in the way and in vogue, Rus
sia exports nearly as much wheat as
we do. When she comes to adopt our
methods, then we shall have to stir
ourselves if we wish to lead the list,
which we do now. as the great feeder
of the world. Cleveland Herald. .
An official publication lately issued
in France shows that the phylloxera is
sensing about a third less land to be
planted with vines than was under that
crop a few years ago. The department
of theGard (on the Mediterranean) has
suffered most by tbe scourge this year.
It has lost 96,000 out of 99,000 acres.
French brewers who have made prog
ress of late will now be looking up,
Paris, especially, has for some time
been " beery.'
AGRICULTURAL ATfD DOMESTIC '
Kisses or Drop Cakes. One cup of
butter, two cups of sugar, three-quarters
of a cup of water, one-half spoon
ful of soda, two eggs, four and a half
or five cups of flour ; drop them on a
tin, and put a lump ox sugar in the
centre of each. .
Hop feast Bread. Take warm
water, so it 'will not scald the flour or
yeast ; stir in thick one teacup of yeast ;
set this in the evening ; in the morning,
as soon as possible, - knead up quite
stiff; put in a handful of salt; keep
where it is warm ; work down as it rises
two or three times ; then make out in
loaves ; bake when light. This kind of
bread - requires better flour than salt
rising, but it can be baked early in the
morning. Use potatoes if desired. This
will make four loaves.
Tomato Catsup. One bushel of to
matoes make three, gallons of catsup.
Wash and put into' a porcelain kettle
mash, and when the juice begins to
cook out commence to strain. When
all is oooked pour out and put the thin
juice to boiling, and strain the pulp :
stir often and boil down half ; then add
to a gallon two tablespooufuls of salt,
one of black pepper, one of allspice,
one of cloves .and cinnamon,-, one of
ginger, one nutmeg, half a teaspoonful
of cayenne pepper and a quart of vine
gar : bottle cork tight and it will keep
any length ot time.
Hop Yeast that Won't Sour. For
three quarts, take two handfuls - (as
much as you can hold) of hops, one
teacupful of flour, half a teacupful of
salt, half a ' teacupful of white sugar,
two large tables poonfuls of ginger ;
while the hops are boiling mix the above
with a little cold water, strain the hop
water, wash out the kettle pour all in
the kettle again, stirring all the time to
keep from burning ; it will be thick and
smooth. Boil thoroughly ; have the
yeast jar perfectly clean ; pour in the
cooked batter and set away to cool ;
when cool enough not to scald the yeast
put in a teacupful of yeast ; when light,
tie up tightly and set on the cellar noor.
When a young horse acts badly in
harness, it is because he has not been
properly taught his business. To whip
and abuse him is to spoil him. A horse
is naturally willing and docile, if well
used, and much may be done, by kind
ness, patience and judgment in remov
ing the ill effects of wrong treatment.
A colt should be trained when young.
and - gradually taught its duties; the
greatest care should be taken to avoid
frightening or irritating the animal.
and much patience should be exercised.
If the animal refuses to do what is re
quired, punishment makes matters
worse, something should be done to dis
tract its attention, when it will general
ly become docile ,
For several reasons fall plowing is
desirable and profitable There is more
leisure to do it nice and. perfect, the
common work being finished and the
crops secured. Teams can work easier
and harder when it is cool; men, also.
The ground being moist, plows can run
two or three inches deeper than when
dry, which sou when mellowed by frosts
is new land, thus adding to' the depth
oi your sou, lessening tne - injurious
effects of drought - and increasing the
returns. It also destroys an immense
number of noxious insects, by disturb
ing them in their winter quarters at so
late a date : All clayey lumps or hard
pan turned up (certainly rich in plant
food) are mellowed, pulverized and
greatly improved for a crop. When
well iilone any crop desired can be
sooner planted in the spring, and the
sooner the better generally for sound,
bright and heavy grain.
Sand for Stables. A writer in the
American Cultivator says: " For the
past two years I have used considerable
sand to good advantage, both to my
crops and land, as an absorbent. For
this purpose I constructed on the back
side oi the stable two Doxes. one at
each end of the stable, about five feet
in width, ten feet in length and six in
height, filling them through the sum
mer and fall with dry sand, and using
it with little trouble or labor for the
cows through the winter. The use of
sand keeps the stable dry and sweet,
and also absorbs most of the liquid
manure Sand also cuts the manure
so it is more easily worked and spread.
I bad before used sand to some extent;
but. having no convenient - place to
store it when dry, could not use it in
winter. 1 'have also found sand excel
lent for mixing in the hog pen, making
the manure fine. -1 have used such ma
nure to advantage for potatoes in the
hill,, as .well as for corn." --
Live Stock Exportation.
The exportation of live stock from
this port to England has. increased
largely within the past year, and tbe
drovers engaged in the shipping have
been more fortunate this year than last,
especially in transportation. So far
mis year very icw vsiuu nave uieu
upon the long passage they have to en
dure, and the reason is that all live
stock before being put upon the steam
ers are examined by a commissioner
appointed by the Government. Mr.
H. W. Jordan was appointed by the
Collector of the Port in March last, and
all live stock going to England must
be accompanied by -a certificate signed
by him as inspector, lie is paid by the
owners. For cattle he receives .five
cents per head and for sheep and pigs
two cents per head. - When the ship
ment was commenced tbe ' men em
ployed, except in very few cases, were
inexperienced in the way the cattle
should be fed. and also as to the reme
dies to be used in cases "of sickness and
stoppage The water that .is used is
condensed and was given to the cattle
in a warm state, but great improve
ments have been made upon most all
the steamers by having coolers erected.
and on those steamers ' that' have not
got the coolers the water is -allowed to
stand until it is of the right tempera
ture The cattle are watered twice
each day, and fed twice- with hay and
corn, and are also given molasses in
their water once in three days, if re
quired, i-ach owner employs one man,
who has had experience, who is given
charge of the cattle and the men who
are to feed them. The rule is to em-
Eloy . one man for every twenty-five
eadl The pay of the men varies. The
men who go in charge are paid from
fiftv dollars to seventv-five dollars each
trip, and are allowed to mess with the
officers. In most all Cases the men pay
their own expenses while in Liverpool
or London. The other men are paid
from five dollars to thirty dollars for
their trip, are given steerage food, and
upon almost every steamer there are
men who "go for nothing," being
termed "deadheads." J.ne average
trip to Liverpool will be from thirty to
forty days. - The cattle arrive in from
ten to fourteen days, but the men have
to remain until the return of the
steamer. When a steer dies upon the
Eassage it is taken on the deck and its
ide is taken off and salted and the car
cass thrown overboard. If the cattle are
insured the insurance company receives
what the hides brings. ; The owners,
as a o-eneral thing, insure the cattle in
some form or other.' Some drovers in
sure against total loss, while others insure-against
partial loss and "others
against suffocation.-. When the first
shipment of cettle was made from this
port the price charged by the insurance'
companies was three-eighths of one per
cent, upon the valuation, which was a
total loss; but if any cattle were washed
overboard or had to be thrown over to
save the ship the companies paid for
all that were lost that way. In the past
year the owners have insured against
partial loss, but the rate has gone up to
three and four percent, upon the valuer
tion. The price in some instances
varies during the summer and winter
months. : The price upon sheep is three
per cent against all loss. . The average
price of cattle per head in this market
is $85.- 'Sheep for shipment average
about $6 per head. Cattle in this mar
ket are sold by the pound, live weight,
while in England they are sold by the
head. The price paid for freight varies.
When the business was first commenced
the average price paid was $35 per
head. The price now paid is $22 -per
head. The first shipment of cattle
made from this port was made by Mr.
Roddick, of Montreal. He was soon
followed by the pioneer of cattle deal
ers in this district, Mr. William Col
well, who has shipped 2,700 cattle and
about 4.000 sheep. Among the largest
shippers from this port may be classed
Lingham & O'Brien andM. Duche, and
Jackson & Hathaway. G. H. Ham
mond A Co., ship from this port a
great number of dressed cattle, which
are killed at the Brighton abbatoir and
placed in refrigerators on the steamer.
The shipment of sheep has got to be
very large,' some 7.000 being shipped
the past two weeks. Sheep do not re
quire so much care as cattle The
sheep : are placed upon the. upper deck
in pens. When the cattle are on the
steamer and consigned the owners can
draw from the bankers in this citv.
The amount advanced as a general rule
is $60 per head. All cattle sent from
this port are consigned to Nelson Broth
ers, In England. The amount of capi
tal invested in the transportation of live
stock is estimated at $2,000,000. The
Jirofit in some instances has been very
urge Ohe shipment of 125 head
netted the owners a profit of $6,000, but
some of the shippers have lost a great
deal of money by not insuring the stock,
and preferring to take the risks them
selves.. Messrs. Hathaway & Jackson
lost upon one shipment $8,000. Ex
