To-day the campaign's fairly closed,
The lucky man is lie
Who takes his seat on the 4th of March
Our President he'll be:
And now the next best thing
Just suit(l to our mind,
Is where to get the cheapest goods
The best of goods to find,
My friends and I went out one day,
Some New Spriug Goods to buy
And we resolved,before we went,
The different stores to try.
We wandered Winnsboro all around
Until our feet were sore,
And found the very place, at last,
T'was SOL WOLFE'S New Cash Store.
Of Hats, Clothing and Boots and Shoes,
The latest to our view
The very best styles of Dress Goods,
And Prints so cheap and new.
So then, my good friends, one and all,
Now is your time to try
What Bargains you can get of me
Or, you need not buy of SQL.

"For some time past the carcasses

so as to ensure that the mutton was
S >uthdown. At the meeting of the
guardians, lately, Mr. Ureswvell
(medical officer) produced the head
of a sheep, stating that, in conse
quence of its suspicious appearance,
it was washed with some soap and
water, when it was found that it
had been painted to give it the
semblance of a Southdown."
One who is familiar with the sub
ject, says: "I have known many
men, and women too, who from
various causes had become so much
affected by nervousness that when
they stretched out their hands they
shook like aspen leaves on a windy

the blanched foot-stalks of celery as
a salad, they became strong and
steady as other people."

It is said there is a bottomless
bog in an important highway which
crosses a corner of a swamp in
Litchfield county, Conn., which has
swallowed up from $100 to $200 per
year for ten or twelve years. The
town has made an attempt every
season to Jill it up with gravel and
stone, but unsuccessfully. Last
year huge rocks as large as a team
of oxen could draw were dumped
into it, and for a time the road-bed
remained above water, but this
spring it has all gone down again,
and the water is over the hubs of
the wagons that attempt to cross.
An attempt will probably be made to
bridge over the spot.
Fences and Fence Laws,
Judging from the discussions of
our farm clubs we may suppose that
farmers are beginning to realize
that the true office of outside fences,
and in fact of all fences, is not to
keep out the stock of a neighbor but
to restrain our own. As a result of
this idea we see that laws prevent
ing stock of any kind from running
at large in the highways are gaining
in force, anil the area over which
they extend is every year increasing.
It is a mistake to suppose, as
many do, that the fruit and grass
growing between the fences of a
public highway of right belong to
the public. The public have only
the right of passage over the ground,
but have no right to its products,
which belong to the owner of the
adjoining farm. As soon as the
traveler or the stock of the farm
diverge on either side of the legal
limits of the road they becomo
trespassers to the full extent of
the term. In strict equity it is no
excuse that that there was no fence,
for, as before stated,7fences are to
keep the proprietor' st'oe1 within
bounds and not to keep othlars out.
It takes a long time for us to get
rid of the idea that "a legal fence"
must be "horse high, bull proof and
hog tight." Sooner or later we will
arrive at a point when every farmer
will be the judge of the quality of
his own fences, or in fact whether he
will fence at all.
Much has been said of the injus
tice and cruelty of a law which pre
vents the poor man from turning
his. cow out in the public road. In
the first place it is poor economy for
any one to turn a cow into the pub
ic road. The time spent in hunting
ecr when she fails to come home,
and the loss from not being milked
at the proper time will usually pay
for her keeping in a much better
pasture. Of all fence breakers the
road cow is possibly the most effi
cient and active, and independent of
her own efforts her presence leads
the farm stock, otherwise quiet, to
break out and cause trouble. Wheni
cows were allowed to run at large i't
was impossible to keep a bull more
than two or three years, for he
became so unruly as to be anuisance
to his owner. By the laws excluding
stock from the roads this trouble is
avoided.-Ph/iladelphia 'imes.
It is semi-offIaly announced
that the administration is pleased
wvith Hampton and Nicholls. Mr.
Evarts has abandoned his purpose
of writing a letter to Governor
Stone of Mississippi. Mr. Evarts
has been advised that it is his busi,
ness to look after Pierrepont at the
Court of St. James, and other mat
tors abroad, and to give passports
to American citizens who wish to
travel. The department of justice
alone, and that only through the
Federal ditstrict land circuits courts
may look into jurisprudence within
the boundaries of sovereign States.
