The Chicngo Times has a few truth
ful paragraphs describing bincy far
mers, which read an follows :
Mo class of men have been rcdi
cincd so much, and none have doiio
so much good, ns those who arc
denominated fancy fanners. They
have been, in all times and countries,
the benefactors of the men who have
( rented i hem with derision. They
have been to farmers what inventors
have been to manufacturers. They
have experimented lor the good of the
world, while others have simply work
ed for their own good. They tested
theories, while others have raised
crops for market. They have attached
a dignify and glory to the occupation
of farinin'g it never bad before.
Fan:;)' farmers have changed the.
wild boar into the Suffolk and Berk
shire; the wild bull of Britinn into the
short horn; the mountain sheep, with
its lean body and hair fleece, into the
Southdown and the Merino. They
brought up the milk of cows from
pints <o gallons. They have lengthen
ed the sirloin of the bill lock, deepen
ed the udder of the cow, enlarged the
hum of the hog, given strength lb the
shoulder of the ox, rendered liner the
wool of the sheep, added flccLncss to
the speed of the horse and made
beautiful every animal that is kept in
the service of man. They have im
proved and hastened the development

ly resemble the creatures from which
Fancy farmers introduced irriga
tion and under draining, grinding ami
cooking food for stock. '1 hey brough*,
guano from Peril; and nitrate of soda
from Chili. They intaoduced and
domesticated all the plants* we have
of foreign origin. They brought out
the theory of rotation of crops a na
tural means of keeping up and in
creasing the fertility of the soil. They
first ground up gypsum and bones,
sind treated the latter with acid to
make manures of a peculiar value.
They first analyzed soils, as a means
of determining what was wanted to
increase their fertility. They introduc
ed the most improved methods of
raising and distributing water.
Fancy farmers, or fancy horticul
turists, have given us all our varities
of iiuils, vegetables and llowers. A
fancy fanner in Vermont, a fcivyears
iigo, niiginnted the Early R..se pota
to, which added millions of dollars to
the wealth of our country, and proved
lo be a most important accession in
every part of the world where it was
introduced. Another of these fancy
men originated the Wilson struwberv,
and another, the Concor? I grape. It
was a fancy farmer brought theOsagc
orange from lexas to the Northern
Among the men in this countrj who
were classed ns fancy fanners at an
early day, were Washington, Jeffer
son, Franklin and Livingston. The
first introduced mules; the second, the
cultivation of improved rice; the
third, the use of land plaster, and the
fourth, the raising of lucerne. More
than any men of their time did they
add to the wealth of the country.
After them came another race of
fancy fanners, who introduced
Arabian horses, Spanish sheep, and
the improved breeds of English cattle,
and swine. These fancy fanners add
ed immensely to the wealth of the
practical fanners of the country.

A French pharmaceutical chemist
bus discovered a way to protect hor
ses from the attacks of flies, according
to a London medical paper. IP's
invention consists in rubbing the
horses, especially on the. part most
subject to attack, with a little con
centrated oil of laurel. There is not
the slightest danger in its use, and the
cost is said to ho very small Another
rcpcllant suggested by the same por
t-on, is a solut ion of sixty (Iratnme.i
(ono pound and live ounces avoirdu
pois) of hssalVciida in two glasses of
water, and one of vinegar. If horses
be well washed with this, not a fly
will settl" upon them, ns the odor of
the assafmtida drives the Hies away.
This drug has no dclctcrohs qualities
as an external application, and may
be used unhesitatingly.
Consumption of Horsk Fi.ksit in
Paims.?In 18(50, the first market for
the sale of horse flesh was opened in
Paris. In 1^7-1, the. Parisians con
sumed 0.059 horses, I0t"> asses, and '29
mules, which yielded 1.295,520 kilos
ol meat, exclusive of the hearts,
tongues, livers, etc. Un the 1st of
January, 1875, fifty markets for the
sale of horse flesh existed in Paris.

Mortimer J*. Loomis is nowono of
tbe most violent of the denunciators
of railroads monopolies. Since bis
last adventure on tbe cars be hates a
railroad woisc than an Arapahoc
Iudian hates a bald headed Shaker.
Loomis lots lits of somnambulism
occasionally, and at such times he
has an uncontrollable tendency to
wander into dangerous places. More
than once he had been surprised on
waking to find himself roosting on the
comb of the roof, or hanging head
foremost down the well, with one leg
around the bucket handle.
He went out to Pittsburg a few days
ago, and when he entered the sleeping
car the thought struck him that he
might get to prowling about in the
night while, asleep, and walk off the
platform into the better world. So
he went to the hrakeman und gave
him a dollar, with strict instructions,
if he saw hi tu walking around the car
in his sleep, to seize him ami force
him back at all hazards. Then
Loomis turned in. About two o'clock
Loomis awoke and as the air of the
car seemed stilling, hn determined to
go out on the platform lor a fresh
breath or two. Just as he got to the
door the vigilant hrakeman saw him.

When Loomis recovered bis breath,
he indignantly exclaimed, "You im
mortal ass! What d'yotl mean?
Lein me get up, I tell you; I'm as wide
awake as you sere.'' Hut that
myrniidun of a grasping corporation
put another knee on Loomis, breast
and insisted that Loomis was asleep;

which Loomis received bumps and
blows enough to wake tin Egyptian
mummy that had been dead for six
thousand years I he rail road man jam
med him into a berth, put ten trunks
and eight carpet-hags on him, and
then sat on him to hold him until
morning. The first thing Mr. Loomis
ask eil for when he arrived at I'ittsburg
was a respectable hospital where they
cured the temporarily insane. He
thinks his reason was partially de
throtted by his efforts to comprehend
how that hrakeman could have the
