Tho houso is situ ated in a natural locust grove, such as sprinkle the beautiful prairie to which their presence gives a nanio. It stands on a slight elevation in the midst of yard, garden, farmsteading and Held. It is not of logs, as is most common, but is what in the west is called a "frame house," and is uilt of sawed lumber from a neighboring mill. Like all houses in a mild climate that invite to spend so much of life out of doors, it has an ample piazza furnished with splinter hide bottom chair, and contain ing a fixture handy for a basin and towel. Tho yard is decorated with native and cultivated (lowers, rose trees in large growth and of luxuriant bloom, and a honeysuckle wearing an odorif erous mantle of blossoms. Within, the houso is comfortably furnished with antique bedsteads ami eases of drawers that are evidently heirlooms, and per haps came to tho country with the emigration of the Cherokee people. Two ancient oil paintings ornament tho walls, tho father and mother of our hostess, taken in old age by some artist who visited tho country, and representing in both instances striking countenances, the father having been tho captain of a Cherokee company that fought tbe hostile Creeks at the battle of tho Horseshoe under Andrew .Jack son. Tin-typo portraits of our ho3t and ho3tess,and the heir of the family, a bright boy now at school at the male seminary at Tahlequah, complete the picture gallery. A few books and a number of newspapers furnish the reading matter. Everything is neat and clean, showing the presence of a notable housewife. In front of the houso, in a natural dell overshadowed by trees of magnificent growth, is a large soring of the clearest water and a spring houso of logs, from which emerges butter as hard and milk as cool as if it had been kept on ice. A well-rilled smoke-house, hung with hams and flitches of bacon, stands close to the rear door, aud broods of young chickens, turkeys, aud guinea fowls give token of an unfailing supply of poultry and eggs. The farm build ings, chiefly log structures, for the stor age of tools, 6tand In the farm-yards, and a large enclosure containing a hun dred or more calves is beyond them, and through it passes a brook fed by another spring. On one side of and beyond this stretches a garden field of an acre or more, already, in the middle of May, furnishing green peas and new potatoes, and containing vegetables of every kind and variety. Then come great fields waving with wheat, or showing the green rows of corn, form ing a cultivated farm of upward of a hundred acres. A pasture tor the marcs and colts completes the enclosed land, but not tho privileges of the farm, which includes an unlimited range of the prairie and woodland pasturo for the cattle. and ponies. Cor. of Providence Journal. The Sturgis, Michigan Democrat states that Levi S. Sanders, a farmer in Indiana, near the Orange and Law rence county line, attracted to his dog by his unusual actions and be moaning?, found mm confronting a monster snako nine feet seven and n quarter inches in length, and eight and three-quarter inches in circumference. Tho combat was fierce, and, after a struggle of nearly an hour, tho snake cocked up its bead, and with a lurid glaro of eyes peculiar only to snakes, mado a last desperate leap for tho ca nine, and quick as a flash coiled itself around the dog's neck. Ho would havo been choked to death in a moment but for a neighboring dog which came to the rescue, and seized the snako by the head in the twinkling of an eye. The massive reptilo rolled from tho dog's neck, the snake was killed, thui saving tho life of one of the most faithful watch dogs in tho valley.
