List week's Farmer i' institute at Bar-

chosen secretary oro tern.
The First Topic.
The first topic, . m Culture," was
opened by J. Osborn, of Port Byron, in
the absence of ti-egory Brown. Mr. Os
born advised the use of a pony plow, at
it produces stronger and better corn.
Plant on old ground; after cutting the
stalks plant between the rows, cultivat
ing afterward. This is a new method,
and its suggestion brcught forth a lively
Tbe next question, ' Is it more profit
able ta sell corn than to raise hogs? ' was
taken up by W. 8. McCullougb, who
brougkt out a great many new ideas.
Mr. McCoIlough cited strong statistics to
pro re that there is more profit in raising
hogs than in selling ccrn.

dition of tbe farmer oi an equality with
other oscupations?" He stated that the
farmer was not on an equality with other
occupations Decauae at does not live up
to tbe times. Instead of being a leader
the farmer does not ret.!iz9 his duties cr
privileges socially. Financially, the
farmer as a rule sacrifices bodily comfort
tor tne ike of for
some other person to squander; but he
ought to be in society, as money is not
all that is desirakle.
Discui-ion followed, participated in by
Messrs McCoIlough, EI wards tnd
Eli Corbin was followed by others, af
tjr which the institute adjourned.

game that be shot in the woods. For balf
a century his only occupation was tbe
making of ax bandies, which he carried to
town on his back and sold. He rarely wore
shoes, even in the coldest weather, and
when his body was found in the path lead
ing to the spring from which he got water
the feet were entirely naked. He slept on
a plank bed. His death was caused by
