Farmers are somewhat despondent at
present on account of the continued
rainy season we have been havisg for
some time, which has caused farm work
to bo on a standstill. Those who were
not fortunate enough to turn the soil
last fall will certainly, be somewhat
late in planting the present crop; thia
shows the importance of fall ploughing.
When we take into consideration the
advantage we derive from it in early
planting a'one, we consider it quite
profitable to farmers The placid Duck
has been quite high during this winter,
being quite a drawbaek to those having
mills on the r ve-, but quite beneficial
to those having mills on the creek.
There are a great many farmer In

Called Und pooh What I mn by that
is they have more land than they can
make proffltable; allowing a large
quantity to grow up in briers and bush
es. Vet this land, some of it at least,
is under a good cedar fenee and the en
closed land not paying the tax which
is assessed on it. The rails which en
close some such laud is worth more
than the land in its present condition.
It seems to me those having land that
is worthless to them would do well to
dispose of their surplus at a reasonable
price, and thereby be a lasting benefit
to the many who are homeless. It
seems to me this course would be more
beneficial both to those who own sur
plus land and also to the many home
less families in this count-y. V e hope
those whi aro;uufortun: t enough to
have too much land will divide with
those who are unfortunate .enough not
to have any. .
Mr.J.U. Fox says some unknown
person or persons were bold enough to
lake two of his horses from his stable
and ride them without his consent last
Saturday night. It would be much
more honorable and gentlemanly lor
those wishing to ride at night to either
furnish their own horses or get the
owners consent to use them. If those
who secretlv borrow horses at night
should accidentally meet up with their
owner they would certainly feel badly,
if they failed to meet with any other
mishap. The safest plan therefore
would be to act differently. "As ye
would that men should do to you do
ye even so to them," is a rule that all
such intruders should duly consider.

Cleveland's Letter and Political
Special IIbbald Correspondent.
WA8HINGTOX. D. C. FeD. 17. Mr.
Cleveland's letter against the free and
unlimited independent coinage oi auver
did not create tho excitement in '. Con-
fress that -the sensational newspapers
ave said it did. In the first place the
views expressed by Mr. Cleveland are
F precisely those held by him and pub
icly expressedfjuBt before his inaugura
tion as President in 1886, so that a reit
eration of them was no surprise to
those acquainted with tne man. ui
course there are difference of opinion
among democrats in Congress as to tne
wisdom or naving taaen mis time w
reiterate them, but Mr. Cleveland's
friends point to the fact that he did not
do so until asked to take part in the
anti-silver meeting in aew x ora. i uey
say that if lie had not given his opinion
in answer to that invitation he would
have been open to tne cnarge oi cow
ardioe, and everybody knows that there
ia nothing approaching cowardice in
Grover Cleveland's make up.
Many eminent democratic senaiors
and Representatives in their disap
pointment at seeing the last hope of the
passage of the free coinage bill by the
House at this session vanish, aa it did
with the publication of Mr. Cleveland's
letter, said, upon the spur of the mo
ment, things which upon cool second
thoughts they will probably regret. Mr.
Cleveland may or may not -be the nom
inee of the democratic party next year,.
but it does not appear probable : to an
unprejudiced mind that his expressing
a personal opinion, which he was well
known to bold, eighteen months before
the meeting of the national convention
of the party would absolutely eliminate
him from the Presidential field. "Suc
cessful polities," said a demsciatio
Senator to-day, "are always practical,
and if when the convention meets its
members shall be of the opinion that
Mr. Cleveland is the strongest man, he
will receive the nomination, otherwise
not: and the rank and file of the party.
who want the man nominated that can
win, not any particular man, will ratify
the choice of the convention, whoever
he may be. A year and a half is a
good while. Lot us all keep cool and
meet the issues as they confront us.
Nothing is to be gained, but much can
be lost, bv being precipitate."

BRAX AS COW FEED,
Bill Nye Gives Ilia Opinion on n Mo
Many theories have boon advanced by
editorial farmers for the hard times
among agriculturists, but I incline to
believe it is a tailing off in the use of
bran, writes Bill Nve to the Northwes
tern Miller. 1 have a piquant little
tafiv-oolored Jersey cow on my oouu
try seat who was, a year ago, a mental
and physical wreck. She suffered from
insomnia, and life was for her al
together unlovely, Heronly remaining
offspring had been kidnapped, anil was
said to have gotten in the soup the
mock turtle soup. She pined and fret
ted a good deal, aud this preyed upon
her vitality, impairing her digestion
and threatening her with hollow-horn
and early death. I got her a large
quantity oi bran and made a pleasant
and soothing mash upon her by means
of it. At first she would insert her
nose in it up to the top of her lower
eyelid, and thGn looking far away over
the nn role hills she would blow this
bran mash across the State, and what
did not go up the sleeves ol my over-
no.it would chink up the barn and
freckle our family carriage. But after
awhile she ate it almost greedily aud
noon the birds sang again in her sor
rowing heart. She forgot her grief, had
no more acidity of the stomach, Hashes
of heat or sinking, ringing in the ears,
dizziness or tired feeling, and now she
is perfectly well. Last fall she ate not
only her three meals a day, but also a
scarlet geranium belonging to my wife,
a straw hat of mine, two yards of bro
caded ribbon from the costume of a
young lady from Chicago who was pat
ting her on the head, 1 worth of gladi
oli: bulbs, a chiM's shirt and a dish of
blano mange, which was cooling on the
rain water barrel for the pastor.
