THE RUGBEIAN SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, 1882.
Whither Goest Thou ?
Dim child of eirth !
With eye uprais'd to heaven,
No record of thy birth
. To thee is given :
The rooking of thy cradle are hut known
To One alone.
Thou scok'st to fathom lur that hidden past ;
To reach the shore thine infant bcin.g
In vain thy plummet toward the abyss is cast.
The line's too short fur such a deep-sen
But the eternal future lies before thee:
Whence thou dost come 'tis plain we cannot
But thro' the cloud that spreads its shadows
' o'er thee,
Say, whither dost thou go P
What realm unknown, thro' all the bright
Shall he thy dwelling-place P
Where, rapt in joy and holy aspiration,
Thou shalt behold His face.
We point our telescope to search the ages :
We find no star !
Thou pondercst over revelation's pages,
What read'st thou there P
Upon that page one written line I see ;
The hand I kuiw :
"Where I am, there my servant, too, shall be."
To Him I go.
Thursday, October 5th, will be the second
anniversary of the opening of the llugby
The following numbers of the Iluglcian are

The Rev. James M. Wilson, of Clifton,
England, who was in Rugby a few weeks ago.
on his return home wrote to the London Daily
News a long account of his visit. Next week
we will insert some of his remarks.
Mr. Alfred Kimhcr, of New York City,
arrived at the beginning of the week. He
represents his brother, Mr. Henry Kimber, and
was in Rugby upon important business in
connection with the colony and the mortgagees,
lie left on Friday for Cincinnati.
The Rev. F. E. Tuke, "vicar of Borden.
Kent,' England, arrived here a few days ago,
on a visit to his son, Mr. C. Tuke, and for the
purpose of seeing Rugby. We have pleasure
in announcing that the reverend gentleman
will conduct the service at Christ Church to
morrow (Sunday) morning, and celebrate the
Mr. Blacklock's fields being -'white unto the
harvest," a corn fodder party, or "bee," was
formed last Wednesday, a number of Rugbcians
assisting in carrying the weighty. baggage of
the goddess Ceres home to her barn. Mrs.
Blacklock kindly and well provided "fodder"
tor the workers, which we should also judge,
knowing the harvesters, to have been a serious
affair. This is a pun.
Revival services have been in full force
lately at Sedgemoor, freguent and long meet
ings being held. We understand the con
ductors have been much encouraged. At
Huntsville, in the adjoining county, four young
men froin Lexington, Ky., have also been
holding revival meetings, in connection with
the Presbyterians. They propose spending a
year in similar mission work. In Fentress
county some revival mission work, is also pro
gressing, but our correspondent has not yet
sent us particulars.
The Rugby Public Purposes Association is
very quiet, but if this arises from there being
nothing requiring attention, it is, perhaps,
well for the colony. At the approaching
annual meeting, which we see by the consitu
tiou "shall be held on the first Wednesday in
October," we suppose a report will be rendered
of the work done by the various committees,
the amount subscribed to the Association, and
the money expended, with any other business
that has come within its range.
We should not let this Association hecpine a
dead letter, but such it will become unless the
members occasionally meet to discuss affairs
concerning the welfare of the colony, and
generally create an interest in the objects of
the Association. There has been no meeting
lor some months.
"There is a happy land, far, far away," in
Maryland, rejoicing in the name of "Klej
(Srange," where a particularly fatherly and
motherly;control is exercised over its colonizers,
reminding us, when we think of our lot in"
Rugby, of the advice that it is "better to bear
the ills we have" than fly to those we read of in
the pamphlet we have before us. In the advice
to settlers at Klej Grange, we read: "Your
occupation will be such as you agree to select
and specify before purchasing and you will not
be permitted to conduct any other business on
the property without written permission from
the landowner. Market Gardening, Fruit
Culture, Poultry, and Stock are to be in the
above order the chief pursuits upon yhich the
Colony shall depend for success, and if you do
not succeed in the branch of Fanning you
select, the owner of the land reserve; ; the right
to direct what other branch of farming you
shall follow All buildings of auy kind
must have the approval of the Superintendent
before their erection, all buildings to remain
undisturbed if the party move." Further on
we see "It is proposed to cr-a ,ise a Union
church and Sunday school and each family
will be required to pay nt least $5 per year for
this object." There are other regulations, all
showing, with those w e have named, that we are
Tint so badly off in Rugby as we might be, and
as others are, ciew iwre.

The moderate fertility of most of the
soil of East Tennesese may lie mentioned
as one of the features in which it
resembles 2ew England. In point of
fertility the eastern is behind the mid-
die ana western in visions ot the state.
A more enlightened system of fanning
would secure far better results., for the
soil responds kindly to generous treat
ment. As in other parts of the South,
the landscape is too often disfigured by
"old fields," yielding only "sedge grass,"
green briars, sassafras saplings, and old
field pines, and seanvd with gullies
that grow deeper year by year. But a
new leaven is at work. Here and there
a. farmer, more progressive than his
brethren, is teaching by .example .the
good effects of judicious manuring ami
rotation of crops. The quality of some
of the staples produced in this section
is excellent. East Tennessee wheat is
unsurpassed by any, and the same may
he said of all the root :'ops. Though
not equal as a grazing country to sudi
sections as tin blue grass .regions of
Kentucky, many parts are well adapted
to the wising of sheep and larger stock,

The term Lynch Law, as comnionlv
in use in the United Slates, is a per
sonification of violent and illegal justice.
According to some authorities, the
term was derived from a Virginia farmer
named Lynch. Hut it can be traced to
a much earlier date, hi Ireland. When,
in 1493, James Fitzstefihens Lynch was
Mayor and Warden of Galway, he
traded largely with Spain, and scut his
son thither for a cargo of wine. The
young man squandered the money in
trusted to him, but succeeded in
running into debt for a canro to n
Spaniard, by whose nephew he was
accompanied in the return voyage to
Ireland, where the money was to be
paid. Young Lynch, to conceal his
defalcation, caused the Spaniard to be
thrown overboard, and was received at
homo with great honor. Hut a sailor
revealed to tho Mayor of Calway the
crime which his son had committal
The young man was tried before his
own father, convicted and sentenced to
be hanged. His family and others
determined to prevent the execution.
The father, finding that the sentence
could not be carried into effect the
usual way, conducted his son to a win
dow overlooking the public street, with
his . own hands fastened the halter
attached to his neck to a staple in the
wall and acted as his executioner. In
the council books of Calwny there is
said to be a minute that James Lynch.
Mayor of Cal way, hanged his son, out
of the window, for defrauding and killin.r
strangers, without martial or corumou
law, to show a good iviUU,,l0 t(,

FARMING IN THE NORTH
WEST. Tllli OTHER SIDE OF THE PICTU11E.
Only spring wheat can ever be raised
up here, and spring wheat is all that
the people think, talk, and dream of.
The famous Dalryinple farm is surely a
success. It is said to have- 27,000
acres under the plough and in wheat.
The farm is supposed to lie really owned
by the railroad company that has the
3,000,000 acres of laud for sale. Col.
Dalrymple is a splendid organizer and
executive officer, and when he has the
treasury of a railway company for a
base, he well may be. The farm is
the largest advertising scheme in this
country, ami as such is a most decided
success. But, as a remunerative paying
farm, it is a failure. It did not come
near paying expenses last year. Small
farmers in the middle and eastern
States may be. sure to make a complete
failure here in attempting to farm with
one solitary crop, that of spring wheat.
They have no railroad treasury to fall
back upon," nothing but theirowu
exertions and scanty means. If the
corporation farm fails to pay expenses,
how can they expect to make money
under the many disadvantages that
they have to contend with?
1 made particular enquiry as to the
effect of this repeated wheat cropping
upon the fertility of the .soil, and
learned thai jive or six crops will ruin
and exhaust the land ; and there is
nothing whemcith to reyenerate it. A
rotation of crops, which the eastern and
southern farmer brings to renew the
strength of his soil, is here an utter ivi
jmsitrihty. Com ca not be raised the
season is far too short even for the
dwarf varieties of New England. Oats
and barley arc raised to some extent,
but they will only further impoverish
the soil that refuses to produce wheat.
The ether remedy, manuring, is out of
the question, because no stock-raising
is attempted here, where for fully six
months a deep snow imprisons man and
beast alike in their houses, and where
not even provender can be raised in
sufficient quantities to keep the stock
through winter. Hay of the poorest
and commonest quality is sold from $25
to $30 a ton in the rich Red River
valley. One may ride miles and miles
and not see a solitary cow ; indeed, the
number of people who- keep milch cows
is very small, and the eastern milk
condtnxiuy jadorus have. here a good
profitable market. JJalcUa Letter to

A circular has been issued by Com
missioner Hawkins from the office of
the Tennessee Bureau of Agriculture,
Statistics, Mines and Immigration, dated
N'ashville, September 20th, 1882, in
which he says :
"Arrangements have been made for
holding a Convention of Land Owners
in Tennessee, and persons who are
desirous of making investments in
M iuing, Manufacturing and Agricul
tural Property in our State.
This Convention will meet at Mont
eagle Springs, in Marion County, on
the 17th day of October, and will
probably continue for three or four days.
I have assurances of a large attendance
of gentlemen from the Northern States
who will come for the purpose of con

midst. Every citizen of the State, who
has inducements to offer, or who wishes
to encourage immigration to, and de

is invited to attend and will be received
as a delegate.
