HOW I BECAME A FARMER.
One fine summer afternoon I deter
mined to become a farmer; Don't for
goodness sake think that I waa going
to bay a farm, for snch were not my in
tentions. No, not by any means. Why
I had never joined the Patrons of Hus
bandry 'was because I had been black
balled by that same organization some
thing less than half a dozen times. And
why I was not going to buy a farm the
reader can easily guess I hadn't the re
quired amount of funds.
But I am wandering away fiom my
fine glimmer afternoon. To return I will
tell you why and what way I was going
to become a farmer :
My bank account was no more, and my
landlady would not wait with me for an
othor week's board, hence my departure
from the city and my arrival among
farmers. The time was spring when I
wandered among the rural districts.
The grass was just starting from its
mother earth, and looked inviting in the
extreme, to a lazy young man with the
world before him, and no one to take
care of but himself. When I say invit
ing, I don't mean inviting to eat, but to
lie down and take comfort thereon. I
' threw myself on the green sward 'neath
the shade of a friend bush growing
near the roadside. I was lying thus,
drooping into a delightful snooze, when
a voice from the highway disturbed my
"Say young feller, what's the mat
ter?" I remained perfectly quiet, turning
the matter carefully over in my mind.
I was lying on my back, and, with very
little body exertion, I raised my left leg
to a perpendicular position, and gently
moved my foot np and down, and waited
to see the effect And io this day, I
solemnly believe, though I know I am
liable to be killed for saying it, that this
motion was the sign of distress among
the Patrons, for in an instance the man
in the wagon was at my side. Bending
over over me he said :
" What ails you, young man ?"
I said nothing for a moment, wonder
ing " if what ails you" was the test word,
and, if so, what would be the proper re
sponse. Finally I groaned out with a
mysterious and unknown working of my
fingers the word, " Corn bread. " With
a bounding heart I saw I had beyond a
aouDt nit tue nan on the head, with
out a word my fraternal brother assisted
me to rise, and led n.e limping toward
the wagon, which stood in the road near
by. He helped mo into tho wagon, and
after I had imbibed something from a
little brown ltur, I was ablo to tell my
rescuer tho story of my wrongs. This I
will not repeat for reasons best known to
myself. Suffice it to say, that the farmer
was deeply touched by my tale. I wound
up by telling him I wanted to got work
en a farm.
"Well, now," said my rescuer, "I
am looking for a cheap chap to work on
my farm. Did you ever shear sheep 7
" Oh, yes," I said, " I have done as
much of that as any other work about
This was the truth, for I had never
been on the grounds of a homestead in
my life. I was just going to tell him
what a jolly time I had experienced last
Christmas, when the idea b truck mo I
mieht be treading on dangerous ground.
so I determined to remain silent on the
subject until I learned something about
" How much will you pay a month for
a good shearer," I ventured, determined
not to air my ignorance.
" How much a month," said he, with
unmistakable astonishment. "Why,
man, I won't have shearing enough to
last a week.
' "Oh, yes," I replied, "shearing on a
small scale, 1 understand.
" Small scale 1" he repeated with em
phasis. " How many sheep are you used
to uncaring in the spring I
"Oh, that's all right," I replied,
coolly. " Of course you will not shear
as many sheep in the spring as in the
fall." And here I commenced to whistle
an unknown melody.
"Young man," said my companion
savagely, " did you ever hear of shearing
sneep in the tail r
Without paving any attention to this
pointed question, I asked :
" How much will you a month'pay for
a farm nana, generally r
" Well, I'll give you about eight dol
lars a month, and feed."
I gave a prolonged whistle, wondering
what I would have to feed, but not dar
ing to ask.
" What do you say, young man, do
you hire r
I didn't exactly understand him, but
aid "yes" at once.
Ws arrived at the farm a little after
dark, and at ten o'clock I got into bed
between two burly farm hands, and soon
dropped to sleep to the music of quacking
eeese. barking dogs, and my two bed
fellows snoring an accompaniment, in
the morning, or rather in the night, at
half-past three, I was aroused from shear
ing sheep by the man behind me rolling
over me and standing on the floor. When
I was able to speak I said:
"Where's the fire?"
"No foolin', young man," was the
gruff reply. " You'd better be tumblin'
out, or you'll miss your breakfast."
During this speech the speaker was
jumping hurriedly into his pants and his
"Wen, yon'ro hungrier than I ever
was, although I've often been in need
of a square meaL But I think I would
have u be pretty bad off before I would
hurry as you do."
But ere I had finished my audience
was half way down stairs. I rose and
leisurely put on my clothes and went
down stairs, guided by a piece of tallow
candle sputtering in an old dirty lantern.
When I landed in the kitchen I found
the farmer, his son, and two hired men
standing before a bench, on which was
about half a dozen lanterns similar to
the ono in my bed-chamber. I was as
tonished. Could it be possible that these
dirty lanterns were productions of the
" Here's vour lantern, young feller,
.said the " boss," as I heard the two men
I took the proffered, production, and
in solemn silence we marched through
the back door in single file, and wended
our way in the direction of the barn;
the boss taking the lead, the two hired
men next, and the author gallantly bring
ing np the rear.
I thought this a strange way of going
to breakfast, but said nothing. I was
not thoroughly awake, and, as we were
thus marching along, I fell into a sort of
a doze, and dreamed I was on a railroad
train and the men beforeme were my
" All aboard !" I shouted, swinging my
lantern above mv head.
I suddenly became aware of my mis
take. I had struck the next man in
front of me on the nose, and, strange as
it may seem, ho was without doubt
dreaming the same thing as I was, think
ing himself a conductor also, for he
turned toward me and said something.
could not tell whether it was "all
aboard " or not: anyhow, he swung his
lantern in such a way that it struck my
head, and the lantern was smashed to
What's up ?" I said. " Are we off
the track 1"
He made some remark about uncoup
ling me, but as I was no hand to debate,
I turned and followed the train, while
my brother conductor went back to the
station to procure another lantern and
return on the next train.
I will not relate what transpired whilo
at the bam, bnt let the reader guess we
did something by saying that after two
hours' work we returned to breakfast,
which consisted chiefly of cold turnips
and fat salt pork, with nothing to drink
but black coftee without milk or sugar.
When breakfast was over we again re
paired to the barn this time to shear
sheep. They were all huddled together
i small pen near the bam, where they
had been put the night previous. The
boss and I got into the pen for the pur
pose of catching and handing out to the
two men, who were to carry them to the
On getting in, I was cautioned to look
out for the old ram. But I was not
afraid. I determined not to catch the
old ram, and thus remain unhurt. But,
alas I for human nature, how sadly was
1 deceived. J! or a wonder, my hrst at
tempt to catch a sickly looking lamb was'
a success. 1 picked .him up in triumph
and started to where tho man was wait
ing, but on the way my burden became
restive. So I put it down in the center
of the pen, and stooped fondly over it to
rest myself, lwas thus standing aver
the helpless sheep, when a voice called
" Look out for the ram 1"
The next thing I knew I was flying
through the air over the f once. I struck
the ground, face downward, of course.
Presently I arose, and finding no bones
broken, struck out into the open country
beyond. Tho farmer laughed, the hired
men ditto, tho sheep bleated, the dogs
barked, and I, well, never mind that.
Uefore 1 was out of hearing the farmer
made somo remark about paying for my
meals and lodging; but, without heeding
his plaintive appeal, I rushed bravely on,
vowing nover to look on a Granger again.
A COMICAL NEWSPAPER HOAX.
The following is taken from "Grant's
History of the Newspaper Press :"
About tho same time as that to which l
have been referring the beginning of
the last century the debate, which was
on the question of the employment of
JSnghsh laborers, being one evening un
usually dull, Morgan O'Sullivan, a reporter
of that period, who had a short
time before been imported from Trp
perary, said to the only other reporter in
the gallery at the time that he felt very
drowsy, and that he would be after taking
a little bit of a nap if he would tell him,
when he awoke, anything which might
take place. The other, whose name was
Peter 1 innerty, agreed, and Morgan, in
a moment, was fast locked in the arms of
Morpheus. After an hour liad elapsed,
Morgan opened his eyes and interrogated
his friend thus :
" Has anything happened ?"
" To be sure there has," said the other.
" Has there, by the powers !" exclaim
ed Morgan, pricking up his ears in tho
plenitude of his anxiety to learn what it
"Yes, Morgan, and something very
" Be jabbers, then, and why don t you
be af ther telling it me at once ? What
was it about f
" About the virtues of the Irish potato,
"Was it the Irish potato you said,
" The Irish potato ; and a most
eloquent speech it was."
"Thunder and lightning, then, and
why don t you ten it mo at once?
'I'll read it from mv notebook, Morgan,
and you can take it down as 1 go on,"
"Och, its myself, shnre, that s ready
at any time to write what a number says
about our praties. Are you ready
" Quite ready," said Peter.
"Now then, said Morgan, with an
energy which strangely contrasted with
the previous languor of his manner
" now then, Peter, my boy."
Peter, affecting to read from his note
book, commenced thus :
"The honorable member said that
"Och, be aisy a bit," interrupted
Morgan ; " who was the honorable num
Peter, hesitating for a moment, " Was
it "the name you asked ?" Sure it was
" Mr. Wilberforce I Och, very well.
Peter resumed : " Mr. Wilberforce
said that it always appeared to him bo
yond all question that the great cause
why Irish laborers were, as a body, so
much stronger and capablo of enduring
so much greater physical fatigue than
the English, was the surpassing virtue
their potato. And he "
"Peter, my dear fellow," shouted
Morgan, at the mention of the Irish
potato, his countenance lighting up with
ecstasy as he spoke, " Peter, my dear
Hilow, this ia so important that we must
give it in the hrst person.
"Do von think so." said Peter.
Troth, and I do," answered Morgan,
" Very well," said the other,
Peter then resumed : " And I have no
doubt, continued Mr. Wuberforoe.
"that hail it not been my lot to be born
and reared in "
" Did the number say reared ?" inter
rupted Morgan, exultingly, evidently
associating the word with the growth of
potatoes in his own " blessed country."
"Faith, and he did say reared," ob
served the other, who then resumed :
" 'Had it been my lot to be bom and
reared in Ireland where my food would
have principally consisted of the potato
that most nutritious and Balubrions
root instead of being the poor, infirm,
shriveled, stunted creature you, sir, and
the honorable gentlemen now bekold

letic man, and able to carry an enormous
Here Morgan O'Sullivan observed,
looking his friend eagerly in tho face:
"Faith, Peter, and that's what I coll
thrue eloquence I Go on."
" 'I hold,' continued Mr. Wilberforce,
' that root to be invaluable; and the man
who first cultivated it in Ireland, I re
gard as a benefactor of the first magni
tude to his country. And more than that,
my decided opinion is that never until
we grow potatoes in England in sufficient
anantitios to feed all our laborers will
lose laborers be so able-bodied a class
as tho Irish.' ('Hear, hear I' from both
sides of the House)."
" Well, by St. Patrick, but that bates
eveiything, observed Morgan, on finish
ing his notes. " That's rale philosophy.
And the other members cried, 'Hear,
hear!' did they?"
"The other members cried 'Hear,
hear 1' " answered Peter.
In a quarter of an hour afterward the
Peter went away direct to the office ot
the paper the Morning Chronicle, for
which he was employed; while Morgan,
in perfect ecstasies at the eulogium
which lid been pronounced on the vir
tues of ihe potatoes of "ould Ireland;"
ran in breathless haste to a public house
where the reporters, who should have
been on duty for the other morning pa
pers, were assembled, and, having com
municated to them the important speech
which they had by their absence missed,
they asked him to read over his notes to
them, which, of course, Morgan readily
did. They copied them verbatim, and
not being at the time in the best possiblo
condition for judging of the probability
of Mr. Wilberforce delivering such a
speech, they repaired to their respective
offices, and actually gave a copy of it
into the hands of the printer. Next
morning it appeared in all tho papers,
except the one with which Peter Finner
ty was connected. Tho sensation and
surprise it created in town exceeded
everything. Had it only appeared in
one or two of the papers, persons of or
dinary intelligence must at once nave
concluded that there was some mistake
about the matter. But its appearance
in all of the journals except one, and
that one at the time not so well known
as at other periods of its history, the fact
forced, as it were, people to the conclu
sion that it must have been actually
spoken. The inference was plain. Every
body, while regretting that the ne
cessity should exist, saw that no other
course was left but to put Mr. Wilber
force at once into'a straight jacket, and
provide him with a keeper.
In the evening the House met as
usual, and Mr. Wilberforce, on the
Speaker taking the chair, rose and begged
the indulgence of the House for a few
moments to a matter which concerned it,
as well as himself personally.
"Every honorable member," he ob
served, "has doubtless read the speech
which I am represented as having made
on tho previous night. With the per
mission of the House I will ' read it"
Here the honorable member read the
speech, amid deafening roars of laugh
ter. " I con assure honorable members
that no one could have read this speech
with more surprise than I myself did
this morning when I found the papers
on my breakfast table. For myself,
personally, I care but little about it,
though if I were capablo of uttering such
nonsense as is here put into my mouth,
it is high time that, instead of being a
member of this House, 1 were a member
of somo lunatic asylum. It is for the
dignity of this House that I feci con
cerned; for if honorable members were
capable of listening to such nonsense,
supposing mo capable of giving express
ion to it, it were much more appropriate
to call this a theater for the performance
of farces, than a place for tho legisla
tive deliberations of tho representatives
of the nation.
It was proposed by some members to
call the printers of the different papers
in which the speech appeared to the bar
of the Houso, for a breach of privilego,
but the matter was eventually allowed
to drop. Mr. Wilberforce himself was
in favor of this course. He treated the
matter in a playful mauner, to the great
gratification of the Mouse.
The Baptism of the Bulls.
The Pall Hall Gazette says : "The
opening of a bridge at Aries has been
the occasion of an extraordinary popular
diversion, known as the .Baptism of the
Bolls. Near the town is an immense
plain called the Camargue, where multi
tudes of cattle usually graze in peace.
During great public festivals, however,
a large amphitheater is formed of carts
and hurdles, which serve to- define the
half-circle. A straight lino is then drawn
with a plow between the extremities of
the curve, and this open space is toward
the Camargue. A number of bulls are
then driven into the arena so formed,
They instantly endeavor to leave it and
return to their pasture, but they are
stopped by a body of horsemen armed
with tridents. A few, however, manage
to break through the line, and then
comes the real excitement of the day.
The plow-mark is guarded by men on
foot, who meet the fugitive bulls, seize
them by the horns, throw them down,
and apply the branding iron to each from
among those bearing the names of the
cattle -owners of the (Jamorgno. As,
however, branding the bull is considered
a great honor, the handsomest specta
tress of the sports is led forward to give
the unfortunate animal his fiery ' bap
tism.' Such is the scene with which the
opening of the bridge of Aries was cele
brated the other flay, me men liked it,
the women liked it, and it is to be hoped
that the bulls liked it too.

The Preservation of Game.
The early settlers of the middle West-
em States found their beautiful valleys
and prairies abundantly stocked with na
tive game. Bear and deer were to be
found in plenty, and various species of
the gallinaceous birds native to the conn
try might be raised at any time in a five
minutes' walk. The vast area of unin
habited country left these untamed 'deai
zens of the forest and prairie the safest
refuge from the attack of man, and to
these secure solitudes they gradually
withdrew, as their enemy pressed them
more and more closely. The ratio of sup
ply to demand, as far as bird and beast
were concerned,' was so great that no
man troubled himself about the slight
inroads which his' own hands might
make. All this, in many portions of the
West, was scarcely fifty years ago, in
others less than, half that time. But
now the relation of cleared and occupied
to uncleared land is reversed. The de
stroyers of the native game have multi
plied on every hand, and the places once
a refuge from human havoc are a refuge
no longer. The earth fattens, prosperity
increases, but the native denizens of the
country are dropping farther and still
farther, till wo shall soon know of them
only through their recorded scientific
descriptions or the graphic tides of some
With certain classes of our game ani
mals this result is not only unavoidable
but desirable. The bear, the wolf and
the species of the cat tribe which were
wont to haunt tho forest and make
nightly raids on the sheep-fold and pic-
sty have had their day and are gone.
But there is a largo number of the game
birds of the West; tho quail, the pheas
ant (or partridge) and varieties of the
grouse, which seem by nature especially
fitted for a semi-civilized lifo, and which
seem to delight in a not too intimate
companionship with man. These beauti
ful birds are not only an ornament to
any man s land, but are wholly the
farmer s mends, since the .'ittle main
they consume is more than paid for by
the destruction of insects and the seeds
of noxious weeds.
The various States, through their came
laws, are protecting, to tho best of their
judgment, the breeding seasons of these
birds, and our sportsmen throughout tho
country are lending their influence to
the enforcement of these laws. But the
motives of the sportsmen aro somewhat
selfish in their character, since they look
to the law merely as an ally which shall
preserve their shooting pleasures as long
as possible. The farmer, however, lias
more disinterested motives for the pro
tection and preservation of game, and
especially the birds, and it is very large
ly to the farmer that we must look for
the successful carrying out of the laws
which are enacted for this purpose. A
very little care and attention to this
matter will bo repaid a hundred fold.

There was a general reaction and improve
ment in grain circles during the past week, and
quite an active speculative business was trans
acted. As would naturally be expected, the re
cent liberal decline in values induced an in
creased order domand, many speculative orders
being received from other markct-i and from
the ulterior. The first of June passed with but
very light deliveries on Jnne contracts, and it
was well known that the markets wero all
largoly oversold. The Bhort interest were there
fore buying freely, showing a general desire to
provide for their outstanding contracts. East
ern advices wero of a moro favorable tenor,
and holders and speculators showed less dispo
sition to sell.

Statistics show that of the thousands
who die annually, a lartre proportion are
destroyed, not by old age, or by the
natural exhaustion of vitality, but
through intemperance, or disregard
either on the part of the sufferer, or his
parents, of the simplest laws of nature.
Such bcinp: the case and figure cannot
misrepresent facts the conoluskm is
that were the causes of intemperance, its
kindred vices, and a disregard of natu

the human life-time would be extended
proportionately. What agent most rap-
