Our readera are aware (wo think) that
our brother of the Frecman doea not al-
waya agree with us, nor wo wlth him
But when we do harmonize it ia a sight
to eee we go the wholo Cgure. Speafc
ing of the alleged New England fair at
Manchester, Brother Tinkham saya :
" If some of the agricultural editors are
not more oarefal Brother Iloldns will loso
the prominent place of distinction he ia
credited with fillincr in conncction with
the New England Agricultural Society.
While at their circus at Manchester, a
very prominent agriculturist of New
Hampshiro remarked to ua that Secretary
Needham told him that Dr. Hoskins was
the only encmy the society had among
the armcmturai editors ot iNow Jinsland
We asked how about Brother Cheever of
the New England Farmer. Oh ! he had
been talked with, and waa convinced he
had been wrong in hia courae. Lut week
Dr. Hoskins, in the Walchman, printed
aome of our remarks on the fair and some
from the Rural New Yorker, in a sort of
aa he was not there, and we thinK the tes
timony will not materially alter his pre
vioua opinion. He might have added a bit
from Brother Cheever, whicn doea not
look aa if he had been seen ' to any very
considerable extent. Brother Cheever
remarks : ' Side ahowa and beer ahanties.
In this department the society has cer
tainly excelled itself, though strictly
Vspeaking'there were no sido showa thia
year, the very most central portion of the
grounds being given np to this class of
exhibits, with the attendant bedlam of
disgusting vocal and instrumental acreech-
ing and banging. Even the speaking at
the president's tent on governor'a day,
waa repeateaiy mterrapted Dy the deaten
ing noise from thia central ahow. There
wero several lnnocent exhibits, however,
in this class, auch as a fat hog of mam
moth proportiona, several curiously de
formed domestic animals, and a few na,-
tive wild ones of interest, exhibited by
quiec, weii-Denaved people, who doubtless
made as much rnoney as the ontlandish
brawlera who seem almost ntterly devoid
of respoct or decency. Of beer and ale
stands we counted nearly fifty, and we
were told that licenses were sold for a very
much larger number; but there was very
little drunkenness on theground. Whether
the licensees found they had ovordone the
busineaa by competition, and bo watered
their stocfc till it loat lts aavor, is a ques
tion more easily asked than answered.
They all complained of losing money, as
the amount of their salea fell sbort of the
license fees said for eround rent.'
" But the doctor might havo taken more
testimony. Here is what a writor aaya,
or a little of what he saya, in the New
England Tlomestead, which is rather plain
speaking also. ' To-day, as I step inside,
what a change I To the right and left,

To this Brother Tinkham adds : " Lt

rank or station, learn to know and feel
that the farmerB of Now England want
neither schools for gambling nor drunk

RuitAL New Yohkeu. We omitted to
notice the aplendid fair number of the
good old Rural. An exchange says of it :
" The annual fair number of The Rural
New Yorker comes to ua once more, and
there can be no doubt that it ia tho hand
somest agricultural publication in the
world. We aro prond to be able to say
thia of an American journal, and we wish
the Rural auch liberal Bupport aa may en-
able it to continuo to lead." Wo add to
this encomium, not only tho handsomest,
but tho best.
The Norway, Maine, Advertiier aaya
some seventeen or eighteen years ago, Mr.
'Joseph Ilobinson of Oxford, Maine, pur-
chaaed a amall farm, anpporting only one
cow and a horae. Thia year the same
farm cuta over one hundred tons of the
beat of hay and Bupports from twenty to
thirty hoad of cattle. Tho selectmen say
it is the most valuablo farm for its num
ber of acrea in town. Still there has not
been a single year in which the incomo
has not exceeded the outlay.
If the tendency of povorty is to breed
envy and discontent, and drive men to
crime by breaking down their respeot for
the riRhts ot property. the no lesa auro ten-
doncv of wealth is towarda over-indul-
gence, selfishness, and disregard for tho
righta ot others. lt poverty maKos thiovea,
wealth makea tyranta, and which claaa is
the more dangerous to society is not an
oasy question to answor.

"it inaKes a oeautnui picture," re
joined Mrs. Atley, " and I am sure that
the change from the stifling, cholera-
laden air of Vienna to the clear, tonic at

through which flowed a clear mountain
stream, they crossed a rnstic bridge, and
entered the domain of Herr Johann
Pontesegger, Bauer, or peasant free-holder,
in whoee cottage was to be their home for
the noxt four weeks.
Mrs. Atley had only a conf used idea of
a collection of buildinga and a number of
people as they were ushered np the nar
row outaide atairway into their room,
which hjid a neat and unfamiliar lk.
The floof was bare, but to that they were
accuatomed. In one corner stood a tall,
cylindrical, yellow, earthen stove; in
another, a small cnpboard with class
doors, holding a few pieces of precious old
china. Between the front windows was
the sofa, and closo in front of it the in.
evitable " sofa table." One side of the
room was occupied with the two narrow
beds, which atood foot to foot along the
wall. now odd they Iooked to American
eyes I There were no quuts or counter-
pane. A amall feather bed, over which
waa drawn a pink gingham case, was the
only covering; the piilow-ca8es were of
the 8ame pink gingham. 'The only white
visible was the coarso linen sheet drawn
tightly over the bed, npon whioh the
sleeper was expected to repose, annely
entoonced under the pink gingham-cov-
ered ieatber bed.
Mrs. Atley, upon whom former experi
ences had left an impress, elanced at the
beds, and then, turning to the good frau,
who had accompanied them to the room,
inqnired how often tho bed-linen could be
" Once a month," promptly replied the
" Oh, that will never do in the world.

couldn't do that. I haven't beddintr
enough. Wo only wash four times a

surprised. " Four timea a year I Why,
iu America we wash every week."
The frau seemed to feel this statement,
aa a thrust at German institutions. and
immediately turuod the dart toward the
"Humphl" aaid she. "Tho Amerl
cana mu8t be dreadful poor, or awful dirty
to neea to wasn so oiten."
Thia anawer put both partiea in crood
hnmor ; and after some good-natured bar
gaining, it was agreed that the bed and
pillow-cases ehould be changed once a
weeir, and the lower sheet on the alter-
nato weefc. The frau then turned to
leave the room, when her eye espied Bomo-
tbing that needed attention. Behind the
Btove, on the iloor, lay a number of circu'
lar oojects, pernaps eignteen mchea in
diameter and four or five inchea thick in
the center, of the color of pig-iron, and
looking aolid enough to bo made of that
"Here, you Kattle," aho exolaimed,
" como and take tbia bread away. '

Myo and his mamma afterward had an
opportunlty to observe tho baking process
in a big out-door bnck oven, and to seo
how the warm bread waa put to cool, eaoh
loaf in abaskot of its own size and shape,
ana wuen cooi was puoa away in any con
yenient corner, Bometlmea under a bed.
" I think we can endure this for a few

ahall uso both eyes and tongno. Wo oan

The frau was not nvorso to havine her
cuisint inspected by tho atrangera, though
she evidently thought itvery odd that any
one should prefer lo do their own cooking
when they might Bit in tho shady carden
of tho little inn,drinking boer and gossip-

ing nblo to enlighton the woeful ignorance
of these unfortnnato nativea of the Ilinter
Waelder (baokwoods) of America.
The question of provlding their own
oatables waa easily settled. Tho baker
from Spital am Ssmmoring, the nearest
village, passed alog the highway every
rnorning, and from him they obtained tho
black bread, or Land Jiroa, oi which they
had become very fond: and the crlep
white-flour Semmel, which, sinco the cen-
tennial, havo become so well kcown and
liked in America, aa " Vienna rolla." But

from the frau, and huckioberries wero to

haps tweive feet sntnre, but a large part
oi it was taken up by the great cook-
stove, which was built of brick and plas-
tered ovor, tlio only lron about it beintr
tho top. The openings for cooking uten
sila were not fitted with a solid lid, but
with nnfia of vanoua dimenaiona, ono in-
side of the other, ao that eaoh opening
could be grnduated in fiiz3 to fit a kettle
two inchea in diameter, or ono ten lnches.
" What ia tbis eroen stult you are al-
ways cooking on tho stove ?" asked Mrs.
Atley, one day.
" lt is food for the cows. We gather
loaves and planta, and the tonder branches
of the ash-trees, cut them up fine, cook
them. aud mix them with bran."
" You havpn't seen our cowa, have
you ?" asked Kittle. "Como with mo,
and I will ahow them to you.
The farm buildinga tormed three aidoa
of a hollow square, tho dwelling being on
one side, and a row of Iow sheds with
doors, which aheltered the picrs at night,
connecting the house with the barn and
cow-stable on the opposito side of the
square. Kattle led the way in front of
the row of pig-pens to the bovine quar-
ters, which were large and quite clean,
but with littlo ventilation. In four stalls
stood the fat, well-groomed cowa, rumi-
nating aa poacefully as if in fnll enjoy-
ment of their liberty.
" Do you keep your cows Bhut up all

" Oh, no, indeed I Daniel and Agnes

" And why don't they take them out in

" Why, they must Btay in until after
they are milked at noon, you know," ex
olaimed Kattle, with a little air of sur-
prise at the foolishnesa of the queation,
" Do you milk three time8 a day f
" Why, certainly. Morning, noon and
nicht we milk and feed."
" What ia that r inquired Mrs. Atley,
pointing to an oblong framo suspended
from the ceiling about four feet from the
ground. This f rame was about six feet
lone, three feet wide, and ten or tweive
inchea in depth, with a cloae board bot-
tom, and was tilled with straw.
" That is Mane's bed."

" Marie's bed V" exclaimed Mrs. Atley.
Doea she sleep here
" Indeed, she doea. And it ia a far
moro comfortable place to sleep in than
most of tho girls have, I can tell you ;
thouch, of course, few of them have to go
so far from the house. It's a great deal
more aociable where the cow atable opens
right into the kitchen, as the peasants
crenerallv have it. '
Mrs. Atley shook ner neaci, as 11 nouot
ing thia aaaertion, and asked :
" ilut how does sne get into ocd i
" Ub, that a eaay enough. one uaea

' Well, the cows wonldn't hurt her.
Besides, they are tied. Bnt she sleeps
here only in tbe aumraer, said Kattle, as
they returned to the house. " In winter
she haa tbis nico little room."
As she spoke she threw open a door
a'ijoining the pig-pens, aud showed a lit
tle room in which she could not have
stood upright. The door was the only
aperture for light or air, and a ohicken
coop occupied one corner.
" Does she have tho chickens for room-
matea ?" inquired Mrs. Atley.
" The chickens, and little Kattle, too,"
was the reply.
" Why, does littlo Kattlo sleep here i"
" Why ? " echoed Kattle. " Where
should she sleep but with hor mother ? "
This little Kattle was a f air-faced, blue-
eyed child of a year and a half old, whom
