I can find a copy of it. I will, M you think
best, write and publish a reply.
It is true that I was an occasional correspondent
of Secretary Chase. Several
times, while I was your chief of staff, he
wrote me in regard to the progress of the
war, and asked my opinions on various
questions connected with it, but I fearlessly
challenge all tho rascals in the
world jo publish any such letters written
by me. They are welcome to all the capital
they can make out of them.
With" kindest regards, I in, as ever,
your friend. J. A. Garfield.

We. leave the reader to reconcile these
conflicting documents as best they may.
They are important contributions to the
discussion of the men named in them.

Tho magnificent farming of Belgium
on poor soil is due to, hrst, the perfection
of both plow and spade work ;
(second, each field has a perfection of
ehapo given to i,t to facilitate cultivation
and drainage ; third, most careful husbanding
of the manure ; fourth, the
great variety o crops, especially of industrial
plants, such as colza, flax, tobacco,
hops, chicory, etc., fifth, second
or stolen" crops, such as turnips and
carrots, English clover, sparry, etc.,
whereby the cultivated area is in effect
increased one-third ; sixth, abundance
of food for cattle. Although the soil is
not favorable to meadows, yet, taking
the second crop into account, one half
of the available superficies is devoted to
the keeping of live stock. Seventh,
house-feeding of Cdttle, by which the
cows give both more milk and more
manure. Eighth, minute weeding. The
Belgian laborer goes with his wheelbarrow
to the village to buy a sack or two
of guano, undertaking to pay for it after
the harvest. The dealer trusts him,
gives him credit, having a lien on the
crop produced by the aid of his manure.
In November he gets his money ; the
produce has been doubled and the land
improved. The small farmer does jus
as the laborer doep. Each opens an account
with the manure-dealer, who is"
the best of all bankers. Flemish small
farmers invest from ."$3,000, 000 to $4,000, -000
in guano every year, and quite aa
much in other kinds of manure. M. De
Laveley says : "The Flemish farmer
Bcrupulously collects every atom of sewage
from the towns ; he guards his manure
like a treasure, puts a roof over it to
prevent the rain and sunshine from
spoiling it ; he gathers mud from rivers
and canals, the excretions of animals
along the highroads and the ways, for
conversion into phosphates." Correspondence
About Killing Brakemen.
The Hartfcrd Courant, in dwelling
upon the importance of railroad companies
using freight couples of a character
that will not endanger the lives
uf those who are compelled to do the
coupling, says :
"Each road that, in this civil zed day,
continues its brakemen butchery is
for it. Nobody denies that
the poor fellows are chopped and hacked
to pieces woefully every day Not a
quarter of the ' accidents' to them got
into print. Indeed it has been even
commented on as remarkable that,
whereas in old times brakemen used to
work their way up to places of high responsibility,
such thing now are rare.
The present brakemen are said to bo
rougher stuff. There are two good
reasons why promotions are less likely
than they used to be. One is that the
brakeman doesn't live long enough, and
tho other lies in the 'rough stutf consideration,
but tho reason they are the
rougher stuff is that they are brutalized
by the treatment theyget.
" No other brancli of industry has expanded
so much as freight transportation
has with such disastrous results to
those personally engaged in it. As a
rule, when any occupation grows in importance
tho circumstances of those en
gaged in it improve to correspond. In
freight transportation this lias been reversed,
and tho brakeman is worse off in
the full growth and activity of the business
than he was when it was only
It is all wrong, and in the
name of humane treatment of fellow
men something ought to be done to
check the present wholesale butchery."
