"Have you dug your grass?" asked
Of the starving fanner man,
For he thought he would not crush
Beneath his social ban.
"How was your crop when you
Iid the weevils hurt your peas?
And did the canker worm destroy
Your young cucumber trees?
"1 love, good sir, the country air,
From the town I fain would lice,
And lose mvelf in rural dreauis
Neath thepotato tree;
I would pluck the turnip from its vine,
Thro' the parship meadow push,
And rest beneath the grateful shade
Of the bending cabbage bush.
"Oh, I fain would be a simple swain
Aud drive my yoke of cows,
And rest at noon beneath the shade
Of the rutabaga boughs,
Oh, I'd hunt the woods for the cocoanut
The whole of the livelong day,
Or start at morn with the rustic doe
To dig the bills for hay.
"And 'fat noon Jay I grew faint
With my labor's strain and rush,
I would mix the milkweed's luscious
With the mushroom's luscious mush,
I would pluck the pineapple irom the
Hut why4has your color lied?"
But the farnior fell with a sickening

It is said by old people that the first
twelve days in the year govern the
twelve iticmths; if so January will be
quite wet, the spring months will be
dry, also of the early part of the sum
mer; August will be wet and perhaps
autumn. We do.not profess to be a pro
phet or a foreteller of future events but
what we have stated above corresponds
with the views of those who have taken
notice of the tirst twelve days of the
year. We have had beautiful weather
up to the present time; line for saving
pork; quite dillerent from last season.
Indications are favorable for a tine
yield of fruit, as we had light nights
daring Christmas week which is said to
be a true sign of a good fruit year.
We notice an article in last weeks
Herald from John Moore, Jr., address
ed to the patrons and school directors
of public schools, which has the proper
ring about it and which the people of
Maury county should consider. We
are far behind in our public school sys
tem, and it is high time for the people
to awake from their lethargy and en
deavor to improve their system of pub
lic instruction, remembering that the
future of our country depends on the
young men. Our friend Moore has
given some timely suggestions and we
hope ho will continue to write on this
subject until he arouses the masses to
clamor for fewer schools, better teach
ers and of longer duration; that is the
correct policy. These public schools
if properly conducted would prove a
Ustinur benefit to the rising generation.
as the majority of the people are de
pendent on the public schools for the
education of their children, ineory
without practice is worthless, theretore
we insist on the practical part and we
hope all lovers of education and en
lightenment, which only has a tendency
to elevate humanity, will come to the
front and raise their voices in behalf of
a correct svstem of public instruction.
