Ignorance and its at tendant companions, sloth and superstition, say: "Take advice from oae whose ex perience is blissful, tarry with me. The promises of progress and improvements are delusive,'the road you have traveled is fair and easy, the one you are now entering is lull of obstacles, rough and uneven, en vironed with dangers, and leads you know not where; with me you can find ease and comfort. While others are racking mind and body in seeking something new and better, we can secure enjoyment without mental or physical exertion. Come tarry with me." But heed them not, persevere" is our Order's reply, echoed and re-echoed by her thousands of Grangers. Let us substitute the dazzling light of knowledge, industry and progress, for the dark veil of ignorance, superstition and in dolence. For these are the weapons that can van quish all tyranny and oppression, and these only will yield the farmers victory.--Ex. TO BUBORDINATE GRANGES. We find many granges fail to elect their officers at the December meeting. The. usage had obtained that the Master of the State Grange might, on application, grant a special dispensation for the election to be held at any time thereafter, suiting the grange. We have given public notice to that effect, and following that notice we have had several applications, and have granted the privilege or given our dispensa tion for the election to be held. We now have an official ruling from the Worthy Master of the National Grange, J. T. Jones, relieving us of much labor on'that subject, and also relieving granges that failed to hold elections in December, of the delay attending making the application for a dispensation. He rules that," a dispensa tion for this purpose is not required." He says: "Under the Constitution of the National Grange, subordinate granges may hold their election at the regular meeting in December, or as soon thereafter as prac ticable." Therefore, those that have held their *liec-; tion since the time of the regular .n December, or those that m~ay -her+ 1d them, will be recognized as legal eleetdths., This is sent through the paperS as Iuthor ity to any and all subordinate granges in the State that have not held their electidln for officers for the present year, to hold their elections at such time as may suit the grange, and the same will be recognized as legal. W. MAXWELL, Master Tennessee G.ange. UsuRY LAws.--There is a propositiln be fore the Kentucky Legislature to repeal the ten per cent. interest law, which every la boring man in the country and cities should pray might be passed. Usurious interest is the heaviest affliction that burdens the necks of the Grangers in every State in the Union, and it is their interest and duty to flght the money kings and note-shavers until the legal interest on money in every State in the Union shall not be higher than the net profit of fahrming--say about four per cent,, per an num-then will all the capital be employed to build up factories, give work to the labor era and improve the farms and homesteads of Qur people, instead of being hoarded and " cornered," as it now is, in order to oppress the people with high usurious interest and the Interest and the wages of speculation.

An hour of an eveniag +sillon was devot ed to manufacturers present to talk busi ness. Eight different manufacturers presented the claims of their goods. Col. Thompson, late National Lecturer, repersented the Otis mower-Dr. Bishop, the Appleby reaper. The Workman seeder and a sulkey cultivator came in for their share. A Childs' Bros. Organ was handled by Mr. Hawley, who sang an original Granger song with telling effe ct. Quite an interest was roused, and three orders were given for organs on the spot. The closing speech was made by :Mr. M. A. Morse, Director of the Gibbs & Sterrett Manufacturing Co., manufacturers of the cel ebrated Climax mower and reaper. No al lusions were made to the merits of the Cli max, but the business features of the organ ization were thoroughly discussed, and argu ments sent home with most convincing power. The applause which greeted his remarks, plainly indicated that the delegates were gratified, and many of them expressed a de termination to work for the agency with re newed vigor. The Grange adjourned Friday p. m., af ter a pleasant and profitable sessiou.-Farn ers' Home Journal.
