PATRONS OF HSBANDY.
GRANGE ITEMS. East Bloom Grange, No. 1:3, Ohio, has a young lady for master. Vermont is the banner state in New En glai.d with its 200 flourishing Grange-. Green Mountain Grange 1, was the first Grange organized there. The Grange is of a soboliterous nature. The main stem springs from a comlpost of correct principles, but shoots and suckers have grown out that prove to be injurious, :und should be lopped off.-Louiscilte Cour icr Journal. The Son of the Soil says: The appoint ment of Major W. II. Harris as Bonded Agent of the Patrons of Husbandry in I,ouisiana, is one that will give great satis faction to the members of the order, not on ly of this State, but of the entire country. The Stubenville, Ohio, wool-house under the control of the Patrons is a first-class success. The Treasurer reports: "The demand for sacks has been so great that we have been unable to keep up the supply. The buyers are offering tive cents more than a week ago." Says an Iowa Granger, I think that the (:ranges should be run more in the interest ot education, that the farmers, as a class, may be educated up to the higher standard of manhood, and think, investigate, and act independently for themselves and not look to others to dictate for them. I find men occasionally in the Grange that are only periodically in attendance. When they want something through the Grange and the G}range is not ready to grant their request they become chronic grumblers and say the mrange is a failure. Let the watchword be education.-Farmers' Union. The Southern' Plantation says : We make the suggestion to every master who wisher to revive the Interest of his members, and if he will adopt it, we will.guarantee his suc cess. The plan is simple, efficacious, and costs only a little exertion. Go to see every member of your Grange and get him to take a good agricultural paper. You are a sub scriber, of course. Take your copy with you and show it to him; don't leave him till he has given you his subscription. At the next meeting of your Grange read, or cause to be read, some article in the paper, and get up a discussion of the views which it presents. As sure as you can get your member to reading and thinking,, and talk ing about the subjects discussed in a good agricultural paper, that so sure will you find their interest increasing. The Witheville District Grange, Virginia, has adopted the following resolutions: Resolved, That we hereby reatffirm one of the l1ndamental principles of our order, that the Grange is not a political organi zation.' That we will not countenance or support any member of the Grange who is seekinr, or shall seek political preferment by reason of hli belonging to the order, and that any brother or pretended Granger who, in any manner, violates the spirit of this resolution, should be expelled from the order. T'Ibat'.re note with pleasure any encour tagemett given by any of the t outhwest Vlrglaa papers, and that hereafter we will give'olr' support only to those papers that give r peetful recognition to the existence of our Wider, and such support and encour agemeat as is given to other institutions of the co.ntry. Says'the New York World: The Execu tive Committee of the State Grange has called a convention of Patrons to meet at San Frasncisco Suly 10, to determine what legislation is needed by the producers of the State. The following are some of the ques tions that will be considered by the conven tlon: "The unequal assessment of improv ed as compared with unimproved land;" "the repeal of the law taxing growing crops;" "changing the revenue laws so that all taxes and licenses due the state, county or municipal governments may be paid in silver, currency or gold, at the.option of the tax-payer;" "a change in educational laws, as foreshadowed In the report of tile Coi mittee on Educatlen;" the question of vo ting for or against "a convention to aniend the State Constitution," and probably other questions of equal importanee. A eonven tion of wheat-growers will take place im medtiately alter the atdjounru.ent of the co-n A large majority of Aroostook, Me., far mers are members of the Grange. The New York World says: "The Grange system does not appear to prosper in En gl:nd. But why cannot that British duke who conferred Brother Mcl)owell the inys terious degree of I)emeter and gifted him with the privilege as Iligh Priest thereof of appointing any of his friends to the seventh degree, which "bosses" several hundred thousand American Patrons, be induced to lend his inflnence in giving the Grange a boost in Great Britain ?" We suppose the real reason is, that the English farmers are afraid the English bull will be gored by the American ox. GRANGE DIRECTORY. Bozeman Grange. No. 2. W. B. Meadow, Master. Clark H.

The Champion Reapers and Mowers are the ackpowledged leading Machine in the world. Over 200,000 now in the hands of Farmers.
