"isTlie future of tlie order of the Fa-

belong to it, and of steering clear of
those in which they are not concerned.
In short, if the order strengthens the
social ties, if it induces the farmer to
read mpre and thereby become better
informed as to the nature of his soil,
-the vatue of fertilizers, the time" and
manner of sowing, etc, its worth can

The importance of the roller as
farm implement is not half appreciated,
and is seldom used. A correspondent
of-the Bural World, after giving di
rections for making a roller says:
A very .mistaken idea prevails as to
the effect of rolline land. The most
common one is that it packs the foil.
This is never true except where the
surface is smooth 'and the sou nne, and
then nerhaDS onlv an inch deep. Usu
ally the land to bo rolled is lumpy as
after the harrow, ihe roller win
crush the lumps in this case if they are
not too hard, and the lumps, although
crushedT'hftve" buoyed up the roller, so
thfttw&nu examination shows thatvthe
loose -"soil, is not packed only the
luiaDS are crushed. But to roll direct-
lyafter the, plow is, above all, the
proper-time to do it. Evetf whenHhe
soil is anDareritlv dry and hard, and
comes up'Iri chunks, there is a little
dampness, in it that enables a heavy
weighted roller to crush it, but if it be
delayed six hdurs, and even three some
times, it dries out so rapidly that it is
past cure. A very foolish idea pre
vails .amont: many .that it tends to form
a-crust and bake; this can never be the
case, because, first, one cannot roll land
at all that is wet enough to bake; sec
ondly, soil wEI run and crust worse not
rolled than if it is.
First, and most important of all, keep
the roller mthefield "with the plow,
and always roll up before noon, and
again beiore night, except on a damp,
cloudy day. Second, roll all plowed
land, except fall plowing for spring
crops. Third, always roll before the
harrow, and then keep rolling and har
rowing until the soil is in condition, no
matter if it is dry. It may be crushed
to powder under the horses', hoofs and
be all the better. Fourth, if the crop
is planted and is up (is corn) a foot
high, or, if nothing is planted, and the
soil is nothing but a mass of hard
lumps, stand ready, watch the weather
closely, so as to let nothing interfere
except the observance of the Sabbath
and as soon after a shower as the soil
will not stick to the roller, put it on
weight it down, have a change of teams
if necessary, and do not let the roller
stop at' breakfast, dinner or supper, till
darkness stops you; thus by striking
while the iron is hot, i. e., rolling while
the lumps are wet. you will have mas
tered the situation.
The text is, rollj.roll your moadows
vour wheat, your corn, your turnip
your fresh plowing and your fallow
and if you are in doubt how to subdue
an unpromising seed bed, roll it. Fi
nally, during plow time, do not lend
your roller for over three or four hours
at any time. ,

In cooking asparagus it is better to
arrange the stalks in bundles with the
heads all one way, so that when done
and taken from the water they may
present a tidy appearance upon the
platter, which should first be covered

the edges to be turned over and cover
the asparagus. If the cut cuds of the
stalks be somewhat tough, all the bet

On Tuesday night a horrible tragedy
shocked the good people of Gwinnett
county. The young son of Mr. Joel
Strickland, an estimable and respectable
citizen, was elain by a negro named How
ell. It seems from the best information
that we can get, that the boy and the ne
gro were playing a game. Tbey had up
as a wager their last dollar and their
knives. The issue of the game was
doubtful, and some scuffling ensued over
the possession or the stake, ihe negro
being the largest, jerked np one of the
knives and cut the boy s throat almost
from ear to ear. He dropped to the floor
and died in less' than two minutes. The
negro escaped and is still at large.

Perhaps in the hietory of our countr
there never was a time before the present,
when the pestilential buffalo gnats were
so bad or continued so long. Much de
struction and. damage has been done to
the stock. The cattle were driven by
them irom the range, and drew up around
the friendly smoke their owners prepared
for them, and farmers found it impracti
cable to uee their horses and mules in
plowing. The ordinary and urgent od-
erations of the farm are actually suspen
ded in many cases on account of them.
