AlRI' ON THIII RAINS.
We Havo too Much litailn anll( too
Many Fool", ats soloikon) Said.
This i the first bright, genial eunny
morning that we have had In three
wOOks-for twetiy.ono days It has
rained every day save one. The crops
are in a bad fix ; the corn and cotton
are hidden by grass and weeds, and
labor is scarce, for the negroes are
wanted in the mines. Most of the
wheat has been cut, but how much of
it will be saved cannot yet be told.
Within my recellection of fifty years I
do not recall so much rain in harvest
time. According to Scripture, it seems
to be the same old story, for Solomon
says, " As rain in harvest so is honor
unseemly in a fool." They had too
much rain and too many fools then just
as we do now. Maybe Providence sends
the rain to try the farmers-to make
them diligent and shifty. I traveled
on the East and West railroad last
week for sixty miles and I noted
some farims that were clean and nice
the corn and cotton chopped out, and
the wheat shocked In the field : one of
those belonged to a widow, and she and
her three girls and one boy were just
finishing the cotton. Markham dident
write anything about the woman with
the hoe, nor the girls, but one of those
girls was merry enough to waive her
konnet at somebody on the Liiin bcsides
me. Some farmers sit down and wait
for tomorrow's sun to dry off the
ground ;Abut tomorrow's sun dident,
shine, and so they wait till next day.
Others slap in at every chance and do
something. I know one who began to
cut his wheat Monday morning just as
soon as Sunday was gone-for bunday
was the day it did not rain. le cut
half that night and all day Monday and
i.ot through with his thirty acres, and
lie says he will make 700 bushels. An
other diligent farmer made -00 bushsls
last year on twenty acres, and sowed it
right away to cowpeas and sold his pea
vine hay for more per acre than he got
for his wheat. That is business-and
Solomon says, " Seest thou a man aili
yent in his business; he shall stand be
fore kings." I am no( braggart but let
me say that If I had waited for the
r'ain to quit I would be singing that
old1 song. " A man of words but, not of
deeds is like a garden full of weeds." I
worked between showers, and some
times when Mrs. Arp called and called
me to come in out of the rain I pro
tended I d idont hear her, and struck a
few mnore licks for Mr. Markham. I
wIsh you couild see my bean arbor-not,
b,mttor beans, but the hest and most,
prol ice an I have ever pl an tcd; I had
them last, year on miy corn patch, but,
theoy do better on poles or over' a cane
arbor. I 'Iant, two rows of becans live
feet, apart,, and w hon they are well up
stick them with canoes. Lalp the smtiall
ends oif the canes together on the
ground and get your wife or daughters
to0 tie thoem in throe or' four places-allI
of un iforum length-then arch them over
the beans, and nature willI do the rest,.
I never saw half as many beans as hang
from my vintes. Of ciourse, tho rains

on that,. They are tibe finest I ever
grew, anid come ouct of the straw all most
clean enough to cook w ithouit wachin3g.
I 'ino straw is very valuablle ill a garden
and is cheap, costing only 30 cen ts for
a good load. It is a goodl mulch for
strawberries, and I am experimen thng
with It under a few tomato plants; mnost
of them I have trained u p to stake4,
but I saw a market gardena near MIem
phis1 and all the tomamo vines had tum*

more fruit, though not so large, and

1ng up1) and feeling around in the air. I
am going to give then some fishing
poles fifteen feet long. They remind
me of Jack and his bean vinc- my
Children and grandchildren never tire
of that good old story. How a poor
widow had a little boy named Jack who
was good to his mother, and one dIay
Jack saw an old giant coming. His
head was as big as a small barrel, his
yes as big as saucers, his nose as big
as my arm, his mouth like the und of a
big stove pipe and his teeth like iron
spoons. He came up the road snorting
like a horse, and was singing,
" I smell (te , blod(1 of an Eiiglishmian;
Alive or dead I must have some."
Jack ran in the house to his mother
and she pullel up a plank in the floor
and dropped Jack down in the cellar
and put the plank hack, and moved he'.r
chair and table on it, and sat down and
went to knitting. Here came the old
giant, pulling and blowing like a steam
boat. I1e dident eat anybhing but little
boys, and he peoped in at the door and
said, " I'm hungry and I'm hunting for
a boy." Jack's mother told him she
dident have any boy for him and to go
oil, or she would set her big dog on him.
Then he walked all round the house
and looked down the chimney, for he
was as high as a tree, but he couldent
find Jack. When he went away and
was out of sight, Jack's mother took up
the plank, and reaching her hand (own
she pulled Jack out of the collar. Soon
after this a poor old woman came along
and begged for something to eat, and
Jack and his mother fixed her uo a
good dinner and some cotfee, and the
poor woman was so thankful that she
gave Jack a bean and told him to plant
it and it would grow as high as the sicy
and have bushels and bushels of beans,
and the vine would grow as high as a
true in one night. So lack planted it
right away, and next morning he went
out to see it, and the top of It was away
up yonder aid he could see it growing
higher and higher. So ho thought it
would bc fun to climb it, and the stems
of the leaves were strong enough to
hold( him up like a ladder, and he kept
on climbing and the bean vine kept on
growing so fast that .Jack couldent,
catch up with it, and by and by he got
so hiigh he couildenit see the ground~ and
b-fore long he got up to the clouds and
btcpp~ed oil on the ble iloor of the sky,
and looking around at, the beautiful
counitry lie saw a great line house that,
was built, of stone. So he walked over
toi it and( dIldett see anybody-niot a
sutI -nor a dog nor eat iior horse nor
cow, hitt he heard a great sniori ng in
sIde and saw bones all aroundi~ the yard.
TIhien no peeped0( in abnd saw thIiat, same
old1 giant, alop1 onl the loor of the wide
hall. ills tongue was hianginig out of
hiIs mou th and his face was grieasy anid
hloody, for he had bueni eating somie
body and laid down to sleep, andI his
snorIng shook t~he house. Jiack was
awfully scared, and started to rn, lut.
ho saw an ax near the door, and lie
wondieredl if he couldent kil! that ohl(
giant while he was asleep. So lie
slipped in on Lip;toe and raising iup tiihe
ax as high as he could, lie burought it,
d o win ont the 01(1 gIant,'s neck, anid w i tlh
oiie blow cuit his head oif. The blood
spoutdi all Iover the room and .1 ack raun
away as hardl as lhe could. B~y and by
lie sli pped back to see, and sitre enough
the old giant, was dead and had stopped
kicking and the blood had stopped run
ninog. J1aek caught his head by its' long
hir~ andi dragged it away otf to the
bean vinto and took it downi to) hiis miioth -
