out among the merchants of Cincinnati,

"There are unmistakable signs of business

What is the odds whether it was in the
mind of Davis or not to whip back into the
Confederacy any state attempting to se
cede from it? Davis's mind, any way,
should have been left among the boughs

too much consequence given to th infa

we are degenerating.
The gallows will have to go. Electrici

would go off, too, before he had time to

The New-York Sun's Democracy is
sometimes questioned as too ethereal;
but the very lovely case it makes out for
the poor Confederacy's feelings when the
pragmatic old General Sherman's paper
attacking the unfortunate Jefferson Davis
came into the senate shows the Sun s
practical heart to be Democratic to the
core. The true way to test a loyal Demo
crat now is to say something harsh about
The New-York Mail and Express sug
gests that nicotine from excessive smok

sudden death, and notes the fact that he
was attasked by vertigo many years ago in
Washington from that cause. And o this
assumption the M. and E. preaches a ser
mon against tobacco. But non-users of
the weed have been known to die some
of them as suddenly ns Mr. Colfax. What
sermon shall be preached for them?
A saloon in Coshocton county the othir
night showed symptoms of being haunted.
After it was closed, a dreadful pounding
was beard on the inside of the door. It
was opened and the room searched, but no
living thing was to be found. Then it was
supposed that it might be the spirits trying
to get out; but examination showed that
not a stopper was drawn nor a spigot
turned. Besides, the barkcep says there
was not strength enough in all the spirits
on hand to have done that pounding.
General Bradley T. Johnson, now of
Baltimore, who was in command of the
prison pens at Salisbury, N. C, at the
close of the war, speaking in reference to
the debate in the senate about Jeff. Davis,
has been moved to say: "In my opinion,
Mr. Jefferson Davis is a statesman and a
patriot" Baltimore is a good place to
say this from Baltimore, throngh which
the first regimeat from the North for the
defense of the capital had to fight its way
Baltimore, through which Abraham Lin
coln had to be taken disguised to escape
assassination. Mr. Salisbury, of the star
vation prison pens, speaks sentiments
worthy of Baltimore.
We have not yet heard from the elegant
and courtly Geo. II. Pendleton, who is
living sumptnously on the earnings of his
ancestors, any reasons why he voted
against the bill to put Gen. Grant on the
retired-list of the army, to pay a debt of
gratitude that the republic owes to the
man who, above all others, made it possi
ble for such a man as Pendleton to hold the
honorable office which he disgraces, and
to give security to the immense property
which makes him the aristocratic Demo
crat he is. The best reason he could give
would probably be a hurra for Jeff. Davis.
This vote of Pendleton will reconcile Ohio
to the representation of Coal Oil.
The mysterious filtering of $150,000
throngh the law-office of Hoadly (Gov.
George), Johnson k Colson in further
ance of the lease of the Cincinnati South
ern Railroad, gushed out afresh in a meet
ing of the stockholders Saturday, and
oozed into the Sunday papers. Mr. Rich
ard Smith, in the meeting, moved the ap
pointment of attorneys to prosecute for
the recovery of the money; and Mr. Hal
stead, in the Commercial Gazette, declares:
"The bulk of it was cut up for persons not
lawyers, who had to be feed. The wretches
should be hunted down." And Halstead
has gone at it There is nothing that he
njoys better than hunting down a wretch
here and there.
A correspondent recommends that, in
these hard times and with wages of work
ingmen reduced, the president's salary be
cut down from $30,000 to the old figures
$25,000. If Cleveland is the great re
former he is claimed to be, now is the
time for him to speak up for this reduc
tion in the interests of economy. If he
delays till his inauguration, the salary can
not then be decreased during his term of
office. An intimation from him that he
would be glad to set such an example of
official reform to the nation would be taken
up by congress with promptness and car
ried out with a Democratic hurra that
would strike the stars. Mr. Cleveland,
glorify yourself in the start
It is a pitiful pother that we are making
about civil-service reform. There are
about 100,000 offices, and only 15,000 of
them are subject to the civil-service rules
at all. And anyone of these 15,000 can
be emptied at a scratch of the pen from
the president There is nothing in it only
that the new appointees must be examined
in a list of schoolmaster questions that
have about as much relation to the duties
of the offices as the dative case has to the
running of a Mississippi steamboat. The
man who answers the most questions gets
the recommendation for appointment If
the examiners are Democrats, as they most
likely will be, the questions will be Demo
cratic questions. This is what all the mug
wumpery is about
ST. JOHN'S DKMAL.
Mr. St John is out with a denial. He
seems to make out a case against his
friend Legate as a liar and blackmailer of
the vilest sort, but is very careful not to
denounce him as such nor to say one of
fensive word of him. Why is this? Is he
afraid of angering Legate? In Mr.
Legate's fac-simile letter to Clarkson oc
curs this statement:
"I said to him St. John, based on what
you had said, and your triend from New
York, together with what was said by Sena
tor P. the Light aller the conference at Co
lumbus, that I would guarantee $10,000. He
St. John was satisfied, and went with me to
Now, when Mr. St John wrote his
denial, he had read this letter in Legate's
engraved handwriting in the newspapers,
and yet he does not denounce it as a lie
nor brand the writer of it as a calumnia
tor. He has harsh words for Clarkson
and the Republican committee, but no
terms of wrath or indignatiou for the man
Legate who had written these astounding
imputations against his moral character
and his honor as a man.
Is this the way an innocent party meet
his tradocers? It can not be believed. '

Everything: the fanner has to sell is
very lov; e?rytliinj. or nt least nearly
overvthiniT, that the farmer has to buy

largo proportion of tho region in which
it is produced brings the rai.-er but 50
cents per bushel. The price of grain
harvesters and sclf-b:mlcrs, however,
rema ns the samo as when wliont was
wo'th a dollar a bu-hel in the pl''e
where it was raided. The same i- the
case w th the plow that turned the fur
row, the harrow that puherzed the
soil, and the seeder that put in the crop.
Everything that is turned off from the
farm is tery cheap, but eierything that
is turned out from the factory is dear.
The old scale of pr'ce-sforf.irm products
has all been changed, but the calc of
p ices for products of manuf-ctor.es re
mains unchanged. Beef, mutton, and
wool arc all low, but posts and wire
necessary to fence a pasture co-t a
much as" they ever did. The cost of
procuring materials and of putt ng them
together so as to afford protection to
animals during storms :md in w nt t
has not been reduced w th .ill the de
ed no in farm product". The pr.ee of
cloth is not affected ap: reciably by the
fall in wool. A farmer may get a small
price for the hides he his' to di pos of,
but he pays a Irgh j ic for the boots,
shoe, and harness that ho is oblged to
purchase. Potatoes a-e cheap, but the
bags in which tney are put and the wag

ket cost as much as they Jul when po
tatoes brought twice the money they do

Formerly the price of articles requir
ed for food governed the price of al
most all other articles. The price of
Almost everything was governed by
that of wheat, as that was regarded as
tho most important of all products. All
this is changed now. farmers have
nothing to do in regulating prices. They
tako wiiat is offered for their p'oducts.
Tney are too numetous and too widely
scatt red to comb ne. The price of
nearly every art.clo they are obliged to
purchase, however, is regulated by as
sociations and combinations formed
among manufacturers. Tho manufac
turers of nearly every important article
combine to limit protltict on and to keep
up prices. They even comnine to pre
vent the establishment of manufactories
similar to their own. In many depart
ments of manufactur.ng there is no
compet.tion between differentestablish
ments. A uni'orm scale of pricos is
adopted which is rigidly adhered to.
Tne western farmer learns the price of
wheat and pork by reading tho market
reports of Liverpool. Ho gets no in
format.on about the prices of cloth and
articles mado from iron and steel by
consult.ng tue quotations in the papers
of Manchester, Sheffield, and Birming
ham. These quotations are of no valuo
in this country, except it may hi to eu
able our enterprising manufacturers to
double the figures. Tho nroriiii ers of
art cles of food in this country are ob
liged to compete witu the producers of
similar products in every part oi tho
world, tut our manufactur rs, who-o
goods tanners are ool ged to have, have
no comp. t.tion cxc.pt anio-tg them

CONVENIENCES IN BARNS.
Not one barn in fifty in the west has
llass windows. The only light receiv
ed is ailin tied through crack n the
walls or through doors that aru left
jpen. To penurm any k nd of labor in
the barn it is necessary to leave one or
more of the doors open. This w 11 ad

raised ' that will into lere w tu any
kind of work that is being performed.
It will also render the pcr-on employed
very uncomfo tible. Mid most likely
cause him to "catch cold." Tho cur
rent of cold air will have an injurious
effect on the animals confined in the
building. A barn devoted to any pur
pose should be well suppl ed with gl-is3
windows. Thoy are use. ul for ventila
tion as well as tor the admission of 1 ght.
Tho eyes of all animals aro likely to
bo impair d by keeping thorn in a bu Id
ing that is veiy poo.ly lighted. The
change between a dark b.un and the
ftee sunlight out of doors is too great
for the healthy condition of the eyes.
Especially is this the case when ths
ground is covered w th snow. The
barns of tho German farmers in Penn
sylvania contain as many g as w.ndovvs
according to their s ze as the dwo lings
they occupy. Windows protected by
slats extend over the mows and scaf
folds on which lny is stored. As the
hay is removed thespac becomes light
ed. St'iirs aro a- cottv n e .t in a barn
as they aro in a house. Th -y are easier
to climb than ad lew, and are far less
dangetous. Every pcmuicnt barn
should have stars huding from t!ie
ground floor to tips scatl'old and top of
the mow. W udows iwu d be a-rang

into the house. Dutch farmers wear
wooden sho-s in the b irn. and lnvo
fro.'ks to cover their clothing when
they aro engaged in mik ng or tak nj
care of horses and pig'. It is certainly
desirable to have conveniences lor
washing in a barn. A p ace can easily
be arranged for a witt -r-iiail, wash
basin, towel, comb, and look.nggl ss.
With these a farmer can make a pre
sentable appearance after he has dono

ready to go to the hou-c.
Dr. Reynolds, of Maine, writes:
"Sheep ellect vcrv marked impro.e

ROSE BUDS AND
SPRINGFIELD SEED CO,,
condit on. Any pasture used lor cattle
or horses may profitably havo as many
sheep added to the stock as there are
acres in the pasture, and the pasturo
will be benefited thereby. Sheep eat so
many kinds of plants which cattle and
norses refu-c that the addition of a few
slice), by keeping down those plants
which other stock refuse, really in
creases the product of grasses for other
stock. A committee of the II ngham,
Mas., Agricultural society once re
marked in their report that a flock of
sheep is as beneficial to tho pastures of
a large farm as the pruning-knife is to
the orchard, as tho broom to the kitch
en. They will effectually clear up tho
weeds, briers, bushes, and other rub
bish, thereby saving the farmer more
labor with the bush-scythe, and by their
droppings prepare the Held fortbeplow.
It is for these puqoscs, for raising mut
ton, and forclearingupold farms.iuany
of which are becoming foul, and possi
bly for the exportation of full-blood
sheep, particularly bucks, that the
farmers in this immediate vicinity
should engage in the raising of sheep.
Harvey Wolcott, Esq., of Agawam,
Mass., who has been engaged in sheep
husbandry many years, says: "I have
two pastures, twenty acres each. I
havo kept sheep on one of them about
seven years in ten, ami the other three
in ten." Tho one I kept sheep on tho
most is worth 1'i pc cent, more than
the one I pastured with cattle, I havo
an orchard of four hundred or Cvo hun
dred trees, of about live acres. When
the a pies are tho size of walnuts, I
turn my sheep in. 1 hey pick up ths
green fruit which has fallen to tho
ground, thereby destroying many
worm'. I allow them to remain until
tho middle of July, and 1 think thev
benefit the orchard more than one-half
the expenses of their pasturing through

"I am a farmer's wife, with a natural
liking for all good vegetables," writes
a correspondent of VicK's Magazine,
"and if the 'gude nion' can notgettimo
to care for them, I do myself, with soma
help. For several years I have tried to
raise celery, and have at last succeeded
in raising the best I every saw. At fhst
I had it set out in the garden, but it
never grew tall enough to admit of
blanching, so I adopted the practice of
taking il up and putting it into barrels
in the cellar late in the fall and waited
for new sprouts to grow. A'ter a while
I found that tho plants while young
need t lenty of water, and more than
they could get so far from the house. I
raio the plants in a hotbed, sowing tbo
seeds in April, and 'ike the dwarf kinds
best. For two years I have used Tur
ner's incomparable dwarf white. Fresh
seeds aro indispensable. About tho
middle of July I havo a trench made
near the house, where wo can throw all
of our clean waste water. Tho trench
is about twenty inches deep and two
feet wide. Into this is put well-rotted
mwuure to the depth of four or five
inches, then covered with about four
inches of soil. Tho plants are set in two
rows siv. inches apart, and tho plants
about four or five inches apart. In this
way the two rows can bo blanched by
drawing tho soil up on eafth sido and
pushing it through between tho plants.
I use a small trowel, doing that part of
tho work myself, getting tho man to
loosen tho dirt and draw it near tho
rows. Care must be taken to hold the
stalks close together whilo the dirt is
being heaped around them. Wo com
mence using early, and in November
have the remainder put in tho cellar.
We have dirt thrown in through a cellar
window and plant the roots firnilv,
watering them about once a month.
The plants are in fine condition all win

Mr. Whittier and Dr. Holmes are now

changed quality and graphic simplicity
and deep and catholic feeling, tho same
penetrating pathos and New England
vigor, which havo been always his. For
half a century ho has been a bard
arousing patriotic and humane emo

reminds us how ever fresh and familiar

which will go on echoing and singing
themselves along tho coming years.
These arc the singers who still hap
pily connect us with the great group
of which they aro parts. But it is tho
especial glory of that group, which
contains the various geniu which first
challenged tho attention of the world,
and satisfied it that at last tho Muses
had alighted upon this continent, that
they aro as illustrious as citizens as
they are renowned as poets, philoso

Mr. Leslie, when he began the work

wondering why the lady tarried so loner,
he approached, and discovered that tho

than dojie. The figure was made, and
placed in his olliee. Leslie worked with
his back to the door and his face to tho

Perfumers and pharmacists aro ac

new perfumes. Hardly a day passes
but what somo new arttcle of the kind
is put on tho market. As they appear,
names are given them which are as
preposterous as they are amusing. Ono
of the most recent manufactures of
this class is called "Sea Spray." It
may be a perfect imitation of the odor
of tho white caps, or it may not; but if
it is, there is no doubt that a
company organized to extract berga

pay a handsome dividend. In spite of

Married After Twenty-Three Years
In Hart county, Kentucky, lived be
fore the war Martin Small, an honest
farmer, whose family, besides a wife
and three daughters, consisted of six
sons, the youngest of whom was Jesse.
Jesse was" a fiery, impetuous fellow,
who went to every cross-roads dance,
and was considered tho finest rifle-shot
in the neighborhood. In thoso days
turkey-shooting was the favorite pas
time of tho country gentlemen during
the fall and winter months. It hap
pened one day that the turkey-shooting
took placo at old Farmer Ezekiel Wood
son's. Father Woodson was the father
of one of the prettiest girls in all Hart
county. She was not yet 16, and al
ready had received numerous proposals
for her hand in marriage. On the day
of the turkey-shooting it was noticed
that Jesse Small took no part in tho
sport. Jesse and Farmer Woodson's
daughter Rebecca had stolen away from
the crowd, and were breathing into
each other's ears the gentlo words of
Tho politics of old man Small were
democratic, violently democratic, of
tho Breckinridge school of democracy.
His sons took example from the father.
At tho secession of the confederation in
1861, and with tho muster of confeder
ate troops, the entire male portion of
the Small neighborhood enlisted. Be
fore ho wont to tho army Jesse visited
Rebecca. Tho lovers promised each
other that they would never wed until
tho country fiad been saved, and a
democratic administration restored.
During tho bitter years of conflict that
followed Rebecca heard but onco or
twice from Jesse. One letter told her
that ho had been shot and mortally
wounded on tho battlefield of Manassas.
She had no hope of ever seeing him
again. One bright sunshiny morning,
near tho close of the war, Jesse returned
to his old home in Hart county. A bul
let had pierced his sido, but fortunately
for him, ho had been carried from the
field by a comrade, and cared for by a
