JfotrHoraa. JOW IT 1VJLL HEAD. Tlie Baltimore Gazette, In diluting on current events, stales the runs in tins manner : "We ctin imagine, iu some future chilli's hiotorr ol the United Stntna, s chnpter snmuthing liko this: Tli ere lived at one time in the .State ol Ohio a mini named liutliorlonl I). TTnyes. There was nothing remarka ble in his appearance or in his charac ter, except that his countenance was viKutit and his manner and conduct pharifiiical. He was much given to Sunday schools and ten parties, and acquired thereby a reputation for mor ality which otood him in good stead, when ho finally became a political pro tender, lie had been very fortunate, as negative men often are, in every sdveiiltiro of lile ; he had inherited a fortuno upon which ho had contrived to escape taxation ; ho had received a military title which fitted him as tbe coat of a giant would fit a dwarf; and had been elected (iovernorcf IheStato, becauso ho had been too weak to of fend anybody and had givon no one reason to fear him in the future. When tho Convention of tlm rulling party of that day met at Cincinnati to noniihato a candidate for Prcr-iJent, there was n great boltlo of tho giants, mortally jeulons of each other and bent upon mutual destruction rather than tn permit the great prize to be carried awuy by any one of them. The celebrated James G. lilalne, whose tall monnment built Irom the revenues arising from his political ventures is OLIO Ol tha lanHmttelf t iKa. Uaine coast, was ontitled to tho nomination becauso tho majority of the delegates really favored him. Bnt there was all that time reigning in Pennsylvania a family named Cameron wbese power then no Republican citizen of that State dared to resist, but no traco of which now remains in any portion of that Commonwealth. A scion of this pow erful house, not being1 able to mold him to his ambitious purposes, had de termined to slaughter Jumes Ci. Klaine. He manipulated tho votes which would otherwise have been given to bim and transferring at the opportune moment all his strength to the negative man from Ohio, whom : nobody dreaded, made him tha nomineo, because he thought be thought he could use him. When the election cams on it was fonnd that Samuel J. Tilden had been elected Ptcsidcnt. But in three South ern Status certain bad men, organised in bodies called Returning Hoards, bad Eosseasion of tho ballots which had oon cast ar.d wcro charged with the duty of adding them up and promtil gating tha result. These men wore paid to alter the returns and to pro claim thoeloctionof tho defeated candi dates and soldiers were sent to protect them while they were doing this wick ed thing. When thesa votes came to be counted at Washington a large army was assembled there to overawe tbe Congress which might otherwise have undertaken to defeat this bold conspi racy. And so fraud first triumphed in American history and the weak and negativo man from Ohio became, in name and form, I'residont of tho Uni ted States. , ,; -, Hut no sooner had ho got into power than he forgot tho men who had raised him to tho bad eminence he occupied and began to plot against tho party which had given him its suffrages, lie turned a deaf ear tn the leaders and discarded tho very Cameron himself. It was eurly observed that he had lallcn into tho hands of a cunning man from bis own State, who 'imprisoned his mind' and used all the power of Ins Auiniiiistralion lor his own pur poses anc'.ol aUermanadveiiturertrom beyond tbo seas who filled his empty head wif b all sort it ol lantastio notions. Rutin m-ocens of timo, when the fraud ulent 1'resident discovered that he could not create a party of his own and a common danger threatened him and tha leaders of bis late party, thny made a pretenso of uniting again. The coalition, however, was hollow and de ceptive. Tbe two elements heartily detested encb other and could never thoroughly coallesce. The stalwarts, as tliey were called, endeavored to nse Liu joa to drivo the pcoplo from the polls by bayonet anil to put certain agonts of their own in control ol the elections, so as to nullify tho popular will a second time, liut there seemed to be but one distinct purpose in tho public mind, and that was, to revcrso tho great frauds of 1S7G, and to Jill nir-li by perpetnal exclusion from ofllcial life all who had taken part in the per polration ol that awful crime and, in apito of ovory impediment to their free dom ol choice, the pcoplo in 1880 turn ed out tho last one of them neck and heels. They fell to rise no more, and tht great liopiiblic had peacefully vin dicated its right to existence." The minister aaked the Sunday school: "With what romarkablo wea pon did Samson at one time slny tho rhilistinesr For while there was no answer, and the minister, to assist the children litllo, commenced tap ping his jaw with tho tip of his finger, at the same timo saying ; "What's this what's this T" nlck as thought a little fellow quite innocently replied : "The jawbono ol an ana, sir." A yonng lady who bad been mar ried a little over a year, wroto to her malter-ol lact old father, saying, "we have tbe dearest little onltage in the world, ornarncntod with the most charming little creepers you oversaw," I tie old man read tho loiter and ex claimed, "twins by thunder."

Ell Perkins, the famous lecturer, got into the cars at Cleveland, Ohio, a fow days B0, when on his way to Chicago, and took a seat behind an Auntio and her interesting eix year-old nopbow, and on arriving at Chicogo, he met tho editor of tht) 'Jibune and related the followingi ,j i .,7, .. ,', ,.; , : .. ,. ., To-day I Hit in a oar-seat on the Lako Shore road behind a pale, care worn lady who was taking a little boy from Ashtabula to Cleveland. As the littlo boy was of a very inquiring mind, and as everything seemed to attract his attontion, 1 could not help listen ing to some of bis questions. "What is that, AimtiolV" tho little boy commenced, pointing to a heap of yellow corn. , i "Oh, that's corn, dear," answorcd tho care worn lody. "What is corn, Auntio ?" "Why, corn is oorn, dear." "Hut what Is corn made of?" "Why, corn is mado of dirt and wa ter and air." , "Who makes il?" ; "God makes it, dear." "Does llo make il in the day time or in tho night ?" , "In both, dear." i "And Sundays?" "Yes, all the time." "Ain't it wicked to make corn on Sunday, Auntio?" "Oh, I don't know. Do keep still, Freddie that's a dear. Auntio is tirod." ' And, alter remaining quiet mo ment, littlo Frcddio broke out: "Whore do tho Rtars eomo from, Auntio?" "I don't know; nobody knows." "Do tho moon lay 'cm J" "Yes, 1 guess so," replied the wick cd lady. "Can tho moon lay eggs, too?" ' "I Biiiinosc so. Don't bother me I" A short silence, when Prcddio broke out again : "Kanny Mason says oxins Is a owl, Auntio, Is they ! , "Oh, perhaps so I" "I think a whole could lay eggs rlon t you, Auntie r , "Oh, yes I guess so!" said tho sliamelt'BS woman. "Did you ever sco a whale on his nest?" "Oh, I guess so!" "Where?" "Oh, I don't know. Do keep still, Freddie." And tho lady gavo a sigh and looked out of tho window. A moment afterward Frcddio looked out of tho window and saw a man milking a cow. "What is ho doing to tho cow, Auntio I"' ; "Milking her, dear.", , "Where do they put the milk in Auntie V . ' "Oh! in her mouth." "Did you over see them put the milk in?" ' ' . "Oh, yes!" ' " 'Where r' '"' " ',' "I mean rio. Freddie, you must bo quiet; I'm getting crazy f" "What makes you crazy, Auntio?" "Oh, dear I you ask so many ques tions." " ' ' The littlo boy soomcd to be pttr.zled and thoughtful for a moment; but soon his curiosity got tbe better ol him, and, as the cars passed a pasture in which wore a sheep and a lamb, be asked: . ! "Where do tho lambs come from, Auntie?" i ' 1 1 " "Oh I from tho old sheep. The old sheep baa them." "Can littlo boys have lambs ?" "Certainly. I'll Ictyru havoalamb, Freddie, when yon got homo." "Will it hurt mo, Auntie?" "What hurt you the lamb?" "No; will it huit me to have it?" "Oh, Froddie, do stop I You ask such foolish questions. I'm all worn out." .. t "Did you ever have a lamb, Auntie T' . "Freddie, stop! Don't you speak again lor ball' an hour I" Then : tbo poor, worn out woman sighed, end leaned her head on the forward seat, whilo Freddie busied himself by placing his mouth against the window, and soliloquized in a sing song tone:, "Mary had a little Iambi "Sheep had a littlo Iambi "Auntie bad a litllo Iambi "Oh, Auntie I Auntie 1" , "What is it, Freddie?" asked the poor woman, waking up. i : "Did you ever sue a little fly cat migar?" . j . ! .... - , "Yes, dear." . i ',r ,. t ' "Where?'' . . . "Freddie! sit down on tlm t seat and be still, or I'll shake you. 1 won't bo tormented to death. Now, not an other word !" And tho lady pointed her finger sharply to the little boy, as if she was going to stick it through him. If sli had been a nicked niun sho would have sworn ; and still, not withstanding wo have eight million little boys liko Freddie in the United States, each one causing more or Icsb profanity, the Y. M. C. A.'s through out tho country denounce llerotl as a binned man, when ho ordered all the children killed except his own. THE COLORADO SUEPERD. Our shepherd must purcliaso his sheep, and hero coma in a good many honer-t differences of opinion as to tho kind which will givo the best results. Some will buy cheap "Mexicans," ex pecting to lireed a better quality of lambs, and then disposool the original purchase. Others affect the California stock, which ol lalo years has oomo into favor iu some quarters. The weight of opinion, however, would un doubtedly incline our Aitorprlsing young runchoro to buy sheep on tho spot in good condition, and, what is very important, thoroughly acclimated. His "bucks" (say about threo to each hundred ewes) will generally be mo rinoos. In the Autumn, we will say, ho begins operations under favorable auspices, if ist cabin is very plainly lurtiislied, and bis "corrals, or yards and sheds, properly constructed and in readiness. For feeding in stormy weather be has enough hay safely stored away ; and after duo care and inquiry, he has secured an experienced and competent herder better, an American, At daylight all hands are called to breakfast, and soon after tho bleating flock are moving over tho range, and the herder, with his canteen slung over his shoulder, and probably a book in his pockot, baa whistled to his shepherd dog and started after them. During the whole tjy they graie ea the short grtu, going once to water; and aitrmooti aoea them brought back aur to tho corral, In which, later, n, they are again con dnerl lnfe night. Day after day, week tiffr wsok, month after month,, '-! ' il PRINCIPLES, NOT MEN. ., WEDNESDAY, JANUARY U,' 1 880.': .-Z : ' " "--I' J""1 ''"! M pass into monotonous round ; and then tho cold weather comes, and the herder puts on a thicker coat, and reads less, and walks about rapidly, and stamps bis feet for warmth. And then eomo day, when ho is far away from the ranch, thoro comes on that dreaded enemy of sheep, raising a prairiosnow storm. ' With -but littlo warning ihg clouds have gathered, and the snow is fulling in thick and heavy Hakes. Tbo sheep hurriedly huddle together, and no powor can make them move. Tho border may have bad timo to get them into a gulch, or under a bank ; failing in this, thorn is nothing lor it but to stay with them, sometimes a day and a night, and trust to gelling them homo when tho storm is over. Not far from Colorado Springs is a gulch called tho liig Corral, irr, which more than one thousand shefp were lost a year or two ago, having followed each other up to tho brink, and lallcn over into the tleep snow. Nor did the Mexican herder over return to toll tho tnlo, lor he shared their fato. It is with the snow storm, indeed, tLat the dark sido of tbo Colorado shepherd's life is asso ciated, and tho great tempest of the Spring of 1878 loll a sorrowful record behind it. It must ho mentioned that sheds are an innovation ; that snmo ranches havo none oven now, and that beloro they were built tbo sheep wero exposed, even in tho corrals, to the fury of tho elements. Per contra, it should be said that no such storm as that of March, 1878, has been known since thoro were any sheep in this part ol tha country, On this occasion thou sands and tbousunds of sheen periribed. Tho snow was eleven feet deep in the corrals, and sheep were dug out alivo after being buried for two and even three weeks !, Their vitality seems very great, and many perish, not from tbo pressure of the snow, but from suffoca tion caused by others fulling or crowd ing upon them. It is asserted that they sometimes, while still buried, work their way down to the grass and feed thereon. Hut our shepherd has taken care to have plenty of shedn, and he knows, too, that by tlio doctrino ol chunces ho need not count on such u storm mora than once in ton years, aud he faces the Winter with a stout heart. W henevur it is possihlo to send tho sheep out, the herder takes tlicm dcHpito tho weather ; but when that is impossible or indiscreet, they are led at home. In May comes "lambing," and the extra bands are busily occupied in taking euro of tbo young lambs. With their mothers, they are separated from tho rest of tho flock, find, in small "bunches," then in larger ones ; and in October thoy are weaned.

This is not tho piuco to moralize on these facts. Thoy ore, however, highly suggeslivo to farmers who, liko mor- ohants, should study to supply the demands ot tho market. Farmers, as a rule, do not exhibit tbo sagacity of merchants in this respect. Ihey olton go on year after year raising crops that scarcely pay tbo expense or produo. tion, and omit to give attention to those on which there is a wide margin of profit. They also dovoto tho usual number of acres to crops that are greatly in excoss ot tha demand. Man. ufaclurors and traders are "wiser in their generation" thun tho sons of the plow in tboso respects. They make and purchase only those articles which they are qnito certain will sell at re munerative prices. Thoy study closely to find out what particular "line of goods" will bo in tho greatest demand, and Bbapo their actions accordingly. The enterprise of farmers in entering on any new branch of business does not favorably compare with that ot manufacturers and traders. ; ,, . The outlook for tobacco as a field crop may bo thus described : J bo amount required for homo consump tion and export is increasing In a larger ratio than population is. In many foreign countries tho Government re stricts, limits, or entirely prohibits the production of tobacco. In most por tions of this country where tobacco was produced in enormous quantities at an early day, the soil has become so impoverished that it is now only used with great dillicully. ; liven by tbo employment of expensive commercial fertilizers tho crop produced is com. paratively small in quantity and poor as regards quality. . Tobacco impov. erishes tho soil to a groatur extent than any ordinary field crop, and, unloss suitublo fertilizers can bu obtained nt A reasonable cost, there soon comes a necessity Inr abandoning the old fields and for seeking now plaoes suitable 6r its growth. The occasion for this change has already arrived in nearly all the States whero tobacco was the leading crop half a century ago.' 1 Tobacco is adapted to a very wide range of latitude. Its cultivation ex tends from tho equator to tho most northornlimitofsuceossfulaL'riculture. It has boon produced with more or less profit in every Stato and Territory in tho country. That tho crop receives very great amount ol attention- in in auother, is chiefly due to aooidoetsl ioonfusion of msjestro ruin and modern circiiimtlanous.. Tho farmers in a neigh- shabblness, and beyond all, back even borhood, town or county olten bectitnejof tho great dome of St. Peter's which Interested In tho culture of tobacco crowns the distance, tho Albao bills through the Instrumentality of one standing up against the blue all this man who sowed a thimbleful of soed or procured a lino plant from a distant locality, r.xpcrimcnts careiully con ducted, but on a scalo so small as to require but little labor or expense, would determine the suitableness ot tho soil and ulimnte of other localities for tho production ot tobacco. It is sumo what singular that systematic experi ments have not been carried on over a wido extent ol territory. ' ' '(. ' . ' Tobacco possesses suventl peculiar advantages ovor most field crop..

Most of tho workr of preparing the crop for market may be done on rainy days and during the Winter, when there is no other remun erative employment in which limners can engage. Tobacco buyers gener ally travel about tho country, and in eoiiseqncncu of this practice producers are relieved nf the trouble, expense and risk ol sending their crop to a distant market.' Persons in the vioinily ot towns where nianuro can be obtained at cheup rates can produce largoquonti tics of tobacco on a very smnll amount of land. Chicago Timet.
