One of the greatest draw-backs
to this place Is that the people will
not patronize home Industries. Wo
all pretend lo he glad to see new
enterprises started ; we say we want
capital to seek an investment here,
but w hat do we do toward helping
these things along-. Lauron? luis a
first class iron foundry, but when
you want a piece of machinery, un
less your need is so urgent you can- !
notjwait, you send 'away [to some i
otherplace to get it when tho same i
article could be made at home for
the same or less money.
Wo have a good wagon factory,
but you would prefer to get one
made eist;where. Wo have two
printing establishments at lids
place, prepared to do all kinds ol
work, from a rough poster to the
finest mcrchantllo printing. These
oftltcs do as good work as you get
at other places and in nearly every
instance at a lower price, conn ting
freight, but you would rather help
build other towns. With one hun
dred other things it is the same.
No town was over built up and
became prosperous where thin spir
it prevailed to any extent. This is
a you tickle-me-I-tickle-you work,
nnd wo cannot [reasonably expect
sensible men to put money In en
terprises where tho people all pull
against themselves and cut one an
If a home industry gives you tho
same advantage always give lt
preference. Every undertaking
that is prosperous, bas a tendency
to make others also prosperous and
if you work against others, it will
have a chilling effect on your own

In vain we chafe and fret at rou
tine, and long for any other work
than that in which weare engag
ed. Routine regulates every thing
that is capable of being regulated
in this lower world of ours. Life
itself is routine, to break which
means illness nnd death. We must
sleep so much, we must oat so much,
ve must take so much exercise in
twenty four hours to keep ourselves
in good bodily condition. We have
a certain amount of studying to do
and a limited time for doing it.
The more ingeniously contrived is
this routine, and the more exact
our nttcdanco on it, tho more wo
can accomplish with it, so that in
addition to performing all necessa
ry tasks, we may enjoy lesli re to
tho best ot our fancies. There ls
the greatest difference among la
bors tts to adjusting ono task to an
other, so that the least number pos
sible of independent movements
will Bufllce to accomplish the desir
ed result. The trains may bo made
to ?ave the bands, tho feet, thc
muscels, in a marvelous degree,
but when this is done the program
me ls all thought and settled In ad
vance, and nothing remains but to
work up to it This habit once
forine?l, work may bc in a mechan
ical way and the mind be left free
to its own trains of thought.
Routine, to the school teachers ls n
nocossity, without it disorder, mis
rule, (dntos reign.
Peace, comfort,security, succ?s-,
find no place in a disorderly insti
tution. The two golden rules for
tho preceptor are "A place for every
thing, and everything in its place."
"A time for everything, and every
thing in Its time."
Let tho routine bo sot in these
twogroovosand il will runas'smotli
ly as cars on the track, and allow
tho speed tobe increased almost in
.dofinatoly. Thc difficulty with most
people is not in marking out a rou
tine but In adhering to it when it
ls once marked out, no matter weth
er ono "feels like it" or not. Every
one should,have originality suffic
ient to plan bis own manner of
worklng.lt isn't easy hy "any means
to break one's self into a relentless
routine, and plod on and on like a
plough horse, but the work of the
world is done by routine. The soon
er, therefore, wo break ourselves to
harness, tho better for our lifes work.

panics which aro entered for the
drill have said in ad vaneo that they
have no expectation of winning
prizes, but that they ure coming;
simply for the recreation nnd pleas
ure of the trip. Thirty-six states
are already represented in the ap
plications made for entry, and yes
terday ono was received at tuc Drill
headquarters from Dakota.
On? very important feature of
tho affairs is tho provision for hoard

and warm, but above these charms,
one that strikes more home tome is
my Interiors are nt pence again
with me, and tempt me to partake
of a good breakfast. After this
rash net, I have to walk up nnd

lill I considered my brenkrast well

we hove up close to a Philadelphia
Steamer bound West nnd by signals

plunging and toiling very heavily
against wind and water. Towards
evening the wind died out and we
took in all sail, i felt much satis
tied with myself having sto . od and
held on to no less than three meals
and those very square ones.
Wc have only 21 patsc-iq.?-s (sa
loon) on board, of whom Gare ladies
and ll) gents and 0 children. For
the flrst time in my voyages 1 httvo
the joy of a stateroom, a whole
stateroom, to myself. Wo have to
to-day steam eil 327 miles.
Tuesday, April ?tb,-When I
arose 1 found that the sun was
up and shining in all its glory, a
fair wind is blowing from the
Scuth ami weather prophets tm
board are prophesying fair weath

added :!:17 miles to our record.
Nothing-of Importance has happen

prophets are correct, for the weath
er still continues good ami all on
board have recovered from their
recent shaking up.
"Wednesday, April nib.-Weath
er continues lin;? an I wind favor
able; tho sea is just tts smoothe as
a biko and if you hadn't como four
days from port you wouldn t hard
ly bclievo yourself lo bo so far
(rom shore. After lunch we par
sed within haifa mile ol' a barque
eastward bound like ourselves, and
as she hud every stitch of canvas
spread, she? looked as pretty as a
picture against the brigid sun. Tn
day we have put New York 389
miles away from us, (this is our
biggest days work throughout the
entire voyage.) As (?vening drew
on a swell came on which made
tho ship roll rather more than was
pleasant. It is one week to-day
..-ince I arrived lu Norfolk from my
visit to Laurens.
Thursday, April 7th.- Dull,
cloudy day. Not a glimpse of the
sun lo be caught all (lay, luckily Ute
rain holds oil' well. Our run to
day ix 328 miles which makes us
1 ?. :?7 miles out from New York.
This bring i us exactly lo mir turn

(watery) bill and are now running
down on tho I'.nglish const
and we are all making calculations
or rather guesses tis to w hen we
sholl set foot on to the Liverpool
stage. My guess is Tuesday tit I
Friday, April 8lh.-Just one
week to-day since 1 left Norfolk.
A fair breeze has sprung up in the
Hast, which ls rather against us
making good time. Good Friday,
and hot X buns are the first and on
ly reminders of the day we have on
hoard. All else goes the same and
every one does tie) same as on oth
er days. The distance which we
have to-day put behind us is only
Saturday, April '.dh.-Rad luck
to it; the easterly wind bas increas
ed to a semi-gale mid the steamer
is shipping big seas f..re and aft.
In consequence, wc have to keep
on the sheltered side. The smoke
room being on the tipper deck and
ns near mid-ships ns possible, you
feel less motion, so ibis ?s my fa
vorite resort. 292 miles is nil the
headway we have made to-day.
We have been tit sea one weeli
In the afternoon tin? gale Increas
ed considerably and a great quant i

upper deck anti the spray has turn

ami knocked down. Ile was picked
up insensible lifter being banged
about. Tin- ship's doctor says he is
suffering from congestion of the
brain and doubts whether Jio w ill
recover from bi- injurie
i fell quito well to-day until,cu
rious to relate, when 1 bad been In
bed a very hort while 1 turned
I q'lile sick. This lasted but for a
moment and as I felt no signs ol'a
rclupst l attributed it t<> excessive
smoking, (which on account of the
Inclemency of tho woathct I per
haps indulgod ia rather freely)
lather than 'mttl-de-tm ?\

arose feeling- well and ale a goot!
breakfast. The gale has modera
ted smd the sea ls not running so
high. At 10-30 til vino servlco was
held in the saloon. Captain Lewis
was Pasto) or rector and Frank So
per wan organist or 1 should say
pianist. Nearly all the saloon
passengers, a good many interme
di?te and steerage, some of the of
ficers nnd sailors composed the con
gregation. At lunch to-day wc
have oysters on the half-shell, and
very pale oysters tie y arc.
in consequence of the storm last
night, we have only made261 miles
to-day, w li (di will now Upset my
calculation timi my correction now

First Plants that are deon rooted

thousand pounds of nitrogen. Hut,
as wo said, it ls looked up. Analy

generally cannot get lt out ut" its
combinations. Now, clover and
peas and kindred plants have an
unusual rout power; a power of
acting on the insolublo organic
compounds of tho soil containing
nitrogen, and of appropriating sahl
nitrogen to their own use. Their
remains convey it to other plants
