name. For upwards of tlirce centurles 1 unls
os been subjcct to tlie Turkish sultan and

obtalned frotn tlie bey of Tuuis liave been

clusivo commerclal prlvlleges granted to
tliese French cltizens. A spur of tlie Atlas

The Tunisian slde of tliis mouutaln range
Inhablted by a tribe of berdsmen and
farmers called the Krouiulrs. lietwoen thls
tribe and the French colontsts disputcs cul-
mlnatlng ln deadly border forays have
occurred. Under pretext of chastlslng the
Krouiulrs, French soldlers crossed the fron
tler and invaded TunUlan territory. The
bey is said to haye oxpressed not only a
readiness to punlsh thls tribe himself, but
to have sent an army agalnst it whlch in-
flicted summary chasttsement for lts depre-
datlons uiin the Algenans depredations
nto mhlch it is alleged they were artlully
decoyed by quarrels purposely fomented by
the French. llut France, under pretext of
protectlng French Interests ln Tunls, pro-
ceeded early in the present year to take pos-
sesslon of Tunisian porta and to occupy the
country with a large rnllltary force. Not'
wlthstandlng the protests of the bey of
Tunls and his appcals to Kuropean powers
for thelr interfereoce, the French troops
coiitiuued thelr advance during the early
nrlug inonths toward the capital of Tunls
itself aud on the l'Jthof Maycoupelled the
bey to slgn a treaty with France, under the
terins of vvhlch Tuuls becomes toall intents
and purposes a French colony. The ad
vance of the French and the surrender of
the bey was the slgual for revolt among the
Arab tribes aud commumties, and the r.uro
pean settlers In inland localities have either
lled to the protection of the guns of the Ku
ropean powers or have been massacred.
The disaifection extends to the tribes of
Algeria aud also to the nelghborlng pro-
vince of Trlpoli lying between Tunls and
''gyr'" The distance from Tunis to Italy
seems but a step. The latter power is irn-
meuselydngruutled by theactiou of france,
who has evidently entered Tunis to stay.

The Moral of Ouitoau's Crlinc.
Tlie Chrhlian llegisler says: "Had Gui-
teau shot the jiresldent of the Bolton Life
Insurauce Compauy who refused to employ
him as ageut, or the chalrmau of a lecture
bureau who decllned bis services as a Irc
turer, would uot a cry that the systems of
life iusurance and lecturing, aud the meth
ods of engaging agents and lecturers were
thereby ehown to be very bad aud needing
thorough reform have been regarded as fool-
isli and childish in the extreme ? Were the
ideal civil-service rules in operatlon, and
had Guiteau undergone a competitive
examlnation for the oflice he desired, and,
failiug, then shot the chief of the exam-
ining board, or, os now, the president
himself, would that have pointed a moral
agalnst such examlnation and a reformed
civil serviceV if not then, why now?
C.in the " irresponsible act of an insane
man " be falrly brought forward as an ar
gument agaiust auy systeru V it does not
appear from the published account that he
had rendered any Bervices that would en
tltle blm to ollice on auy politlcal grounds.
Ue seems to have had au iusaue desire for
notoriety, and to be one of those intellectual
and moral monstrositles who sometlmes
come to llght.the cause of whose production
only Infinltu wiedom kuows. The civil ser-
vice and inodes of appointment may be os
bad au its severest critics declare ; his act
prores uothiug, and the attempt to hold
them responsible shows a lack of well con-
sidered reasous for their hostility lu the
miuds of those who make it. It is either
thoughtless or dishouest, and a clear case of
trying to make capital out of the sad event
that has shocked the nation is a gravo of-
feuce agalnst any htgh code of morals, and
is calculated to destroy the respect of think'
Ing men for the intellectual clenrness and
falruess of those who make it, while It can
not permaneutly help any good cause. It is
a striking manifestatlon of the strauge in
tellectual and moral obtuseuess and confu
sion which seems U have seized upon many
of our cultured men during the last few
years, notably iu their comments upon publio
affairs (some of our Unitariau clergy are
striking examples), which Is at least as de
moraluiug iu its general influence as ollice
seeking."
l'rohlbltlon lu Jfainc.
Kx-Uoveruor Uingley gives some facts
and fig'ures in response to some random shots
at tbe 1'ine Tree state as to the worklng of
the Malne liquor law. He does uot claim
that the mlllennium has dawned on tbe
state, or that criminals are not found there,
but he does claim that prohibition has
closed every brewery aud distillery in M aiue,
and such is known to be the fact. In the
second place, the same autbority says, pro
hibition has closed tbe open dram-shops in
Malue. Thls is a great galn, since it re
moveatheopen flaunting temptation. Driven
under grouud, Malne hai a third less grog'
sbops of thls character thau the average of
the states of the Unlon. That average is
one dram-sbop to every '.'30 iubabitants. In
1838 Malne had one dram-sbop to every 225
inhabitants. The average in Malne to-day.
at the outslde, is one secret dram-shop to
700 inhabltauts. There are only 750 !!
censes issued ln the state, and of these 200
are druggista. More thau half the towus of
the Btate have not a secret groggery. In
I.ewiston and Auburn, where tbe law is en
forced, there is only one secret groggery to
1,000 inhabitants. In llceuse clties the
average is one grog-shop to 200 iuhabltauts.
Then, as tocrlme, Malne has 1U0 convlcts ln
state prison, whlch is one to 11,000 Inhabit
ants i Alabaina, one 1,100; Callfornia, one
toCOO; Connecticut, one to 2,100; Massa
chusetts, one to 2,200 ; New llampshire, one
to 1,000; New York.oueto 1,100; Vermont,
one to 1,800. The law, wherever falrly ad
uiinUtered, supplemeuting moral agencies,
has, the goveiuor concludes, greatly alded
iu luitlgatiug the evils of the dram shops.
T iif. peculiaritles of Mrs. I.incoln are the
subjectof some remlnisceuces by the Hart
ford J'oil, whlch says that wheu they went
to Washington iu 1801 Mrs. Lincoln ran up
a dry goods und f urnlture blll at New York
for $25,000, greatly to Mr. Lincoln' embar
rassmeut. They wero paid for out of the
contlngent account subsequently. Slio
brought slxty trunks of goods and rellcs
home f lOin Kurope, aud took au ecceutrlo
iuterest lu their couteuts. She used to an
noy Mr. Lluciilii very inucli by her Jealousy,
dlsplayed upou very iuopportune occaslous
aud alwajs wlthout cause.
In the analysls of fertllUers the ingredi
ents of principal commercial value are nitro
eon. nhosphate of lime and potash. The
dlfTerenceiu form, combination and mechan
ical conditlon in whlch these substauces are
found creatly atfects their value. The
present method of analyzlng fertlllzers recog-
nizes these distiuctlons only in regard to
phosphate of lime, and the values founded
upon these analyses are altogether false and
erroneous. ln regard to nitrogen, the most
costly, we are notinformed as to the amouut
of soluble or insoluble, but it is usually stated
os organic substanco " ylelding ammonia,'
but we are left in Ignorance as to when
these changes take place ln the soil. As to
the other constituents contained in fertll
lzers, no mention is mado of them, as
they were valueless, although they usually
comprlse nlne-tentbs of tbe whole weigbt,
and are of value. When giving an analysis,
the whole should be given, with the form
and condition in which they exist Then
it will be known what the fertilizer is com-
posed of, and an estimate of its agricultural
as well os its commerclal value can be found
otherwise, by the present methods, which do
uot recognize these distlnctions, the conclu
sious drawn from them are uncertaln, uure
liable and of nuestlonable value. A fertil
izer can be made containing every element
of plant food in abundance, and yet be prac-
tlcally worthless. The potash of feldspai
thephosphoric acid of massive apatite, and
the nitrogen of leather scraps, are nearly in
nutritious for crops, because they are locked
up in insoluble combmatious. In commer
cial fertilizers tbe nitrogen is estimated at
from fiftecn to twenty-five cents a pound
This is tbe commercial value, for the reason
that it caunot be obtained ln a form suit-
able for commerclal purposes for less thau
that ; but it can be obtained ln the form of
fish scrap, dried blood and meat scraps, at
about teu cents a pound. Tbe agricultural
value is quite another thlng, aud it should
not be estimated at a higher rate than it
can be produced for in an agricultural form.
1'eat contains two and a half per cent of
nitrogen, and there are but few f arms whlch
have not an abundance of it on them or in
their vicinlty. As it is dug out its nitro
gen is locked up in insoluble combinations,
but by composting the peat with any alkali
(soda ash and wood oshes at the present
tlme are the cheapest) ln sutticient quautlty
to neutralize ita acid properties, will render
it soluble, and &l it for food for planU at a
cost of about two cents a pound for nitro
gen, os is well explained in " Dana's Muck
Manual." It is a well recognized fact, that,
next to temperature, the water supply is the
most influential factor lu the product of a
crop. roor solis glve good crops ln seasons
of plontiful and well-distributed rains, or
when sklllfully irrigated; but InsufOclent
molsture in the soil is an evil that no sup
plies of plant food can neutrolize.
l'eat properly composted with an alkali is
a great absorber of moisture. It tends to
keep tbe soil molst even ln tlmes of drouth,
and as it decomposes it gives off carbonio
acid gas, a powerf ul eolvent of the soil, thus
liberatlng and rendering soluble other ele-
ments of plant food to nourish the growing
crops. Frofessor Stockhardt of the Hoyal
Academy of Agriculture at Thorend (Ger
many), in his chemlcal field lectures says:
" If a farmer deslres that a mauure met
with in commerce should undergo examlna
tion, he will act wisely lu proposing to the
chemlst who is to institute the analysis the
following questions : Flrst, what quantity
does it coutaiu in oue hundred parts of nit
rogen ? Second, what quantity does it con
tain in one hundred parts of organic mat-
ter? Thlrd, what quantity does it contaln
in one hundred patts of salts of potash ?
Fourth, what quautlty does it contaiu In one
hundred parts of salts of sodaY Fifth,
what quantity does it contaiu in one hun
dred parts of phosphate of lime ? Slxth,
what quantity does it contaln lu one hun
dred parts of gypsum? Seventh, what
quantity does it contaiu in one hundred
parts of carbonate of lime Iu counection
with maenesia 1 Then ask, In what cotn-
blnation is the nitrogen princlpally pres
ent ? As au ammonlacal salt 7 As a uitrio
acid salt ? As an organic substance of easy,
or of diflicult, decay ? lly the reply to the
firat luqulry, be Is placed in position to cal
culate the approxlinate value in money of
the manure iu question, whllst from the
subsequont answers ho acquires tolerably
certaiu informatlon as to the slow or rapid
actiontbat may beantlcipated from its use."
Iu tlio Massachusetta Agricultural Heport
of 1875 and 70, pago three huudrod slxty
four, in rrofessorfloessman's report as state
lnlctor of fertilizers, he says : " Agricul
tural chemists dlstingulsh very properly be
tweeu actual aud poteutial ammonia ; the
latter refera to the ammonia whlch, iu the
course of tlme, will result from the decoiu-
position of tlio organlo malter containing
ultrogeu. Iu some instancen thls hapens
very rapldly; lu others It requlres inonths,
and eveu years, to briug out Uiu full amouut
of nitrogen for actlon. Our dcalers ln fer
tilizers havo not yet been serlously isked to
recognize the great dlfference whlcli exlsls
between the value of nitrogen ln the form
of ammonia comtounds, guano, meat, flsh,
blood, eto., and In thatof halr, hornwoolcn
refuse, leather scraps, elc, although ln the
form of the latter it is scarcely worlh one-
half the amount of the former. lor the
farmer's interest, is It not tlme the rjuosllon
should bo serlously asked, and not oalf asked,
but answered? On pago three hundred
xty-seven he says : " Fertilizer denlers are
charglng thlrty cents a pound for nitrogen
wlthout reference to the form ln whlch it is
present." In report of 1870-77, pige two
hundred flfty-cight, he ssys : " Thojphos
phorle acid lu the hones, steamed and raw,
is valued accordlng to the tnechanleol con
ditlon of the bone after grlnding ; the aame
rule applles with equal force to tbejalua
tions of the nitrogen in their nitrogenous
matter." On page three hundred (elghty-
two (report of 1871-75) he says i "The most
important informatlon which the farmer
needs, to secure to himself the full agricul
tural value of any commerclal valueofforod
lorsale, couslsts lu knowing the exacc ind,
the amount, and the chemlcal and physlcal
cnndltlon of the essentlal artlcles of.tilant-
food It contains; wlthout this, aftional
system of manurlng becomes imposslble.
As tlie laws in regard to fertlllzers do not
requlre thls informatlon to be given, of
what value are the laws, except posslbly to
ralslead? Same report, page three hun
dred elghty-onc, he says : " Manuf acturors
of fertlllzers ought to take lnto considera-
tion that the artlcles they offer for salo have
not only a commercial value, but also a pe
culiar agricultural value, aud that the latter
Is independent of the former, for both are
determined by qulte a different standard.
The commerclal value depends here, as well
os elsewhere, on the relatlon of demand and
supply ln the market, and is controlled by
competltion. The agricultural value de
pends on its pecullar crop-producing capao-
ity, and is determined by the judicious ap
plication of the farmer. A shovelful of
lime may do more good under certaiu clr
cumstances than several times lts welght of
more costly drled, blood."
IIow long wlll it be before farmers have
laws framed and passed in their interest 7

Vermont is full of iugeuious men, and
many of them are farmers. Very many val-
uable improvements of various sorts orlgin
ato here, and not the least among these are
tho improved varleties of potatoes, graln,
etc, that result from the palient labors and
careful experlmentatton ot our farmers
Nearly all the leadlng varieties of potatoes,
and not a few of wheat, corn, oats, etc,
were produced in Vermont. Mr. I'ringle of
Charlotte alone originatod the Snowflake,
Alpha and Huby potatoes, and the Cham
plain and Defiauce wheats. Of the latter
the introducers, 1). K. llliss & Sons of New
York, have had orders by the cargo for for-
eign markets, particularly for Australia.
They were obllged to supply tbemselves for
the flrst year or two from Vermont farms,
but these cargo orders have to be grown iu
the west because wheat ls lald down ln New
York at a cheaper rate of freight by the car
load from Minuesota than from Addison
county, Vermont. Vermont farmers were
ready to grow the wheat and deliver it to
the cars os cheaply as the Minnesota farm
ers, but the cheaper freight gave the job to
Minnesota. In the same way potatoes orig-
inaling in Vermont are grown for New
York seedsmen ln Northern New York
ratber than tn Vermont, on account of the
greatly less freight charge there from the
farm to tbe New York warehouses. We
have sold a new early pea of our own to a
New York house, and of course they must
have the first crop from us, but we cannot

State Ilcgulatlon of Kallioads.
An excliange, noticing an artlcle in the
July North American Jleview upon the above
toplc, written by Mr. J. M. Moson, says truly
that it throws a good deal of light on the
question whetber the state has the rlght to reg-
ulate railway charges. It is one of the main
arguments of the railroad managers that the
management of a rallroad ls a business, in
no way different from any other busiuess;
tbat tho question of charges should be de-
clded by the law of supply aud demand
regulated by natural competitlou ; and that
for the Btate to Interfere with this natural
method of regulating charges ls os iudefen-
sible as state interference with any other
kind of business would be. Iu other words,
it isurged that the state has no morerigbt to
ssy at what prico a bushel of wheat shall be
carried than to say at what price it shall be
sold. This is certaiuly a plausible state
ment of tbe case, and the author of the artl
cle referred to labors to show that it is
fallacious and untenable.
After showing that, merely as a corpora-
llon, a railway company differs in no respect
from any other corporation, Mr. Mason says
that ln order to determine the powers and
immunttles of a railway we must ascertain
the specific rlghta conferred on it by legisla-
tive charter. Tbese riglibi are riglits of
publlc properly as dlstinguished from rights
of private property, and are two iu number
the eminent domalu, or the power to take
private property for publio use wlthout con
sent of the owner, and the rlght to take toll
It is this second right wtth which the artl
cle ls malnly concerned. The allegation
that a railway is purely a busiuess, and lts
charges to be regulated by business princl
ples, rosts on the assumptlon tbat the rail
way is private property, and the charge
made and paid is a consideratlon for the
use of such private property by other per
sons. llut the legal vlew ol the case, Jir.
Masou urges, is that the rallroad is a hlgh
way, and as such publio property, and tbat
the charge demanded and paid la strictly
and emphatically a toll. If this latter vlew
ls souud law, it follows as a matter of course
that the state may and should fix tbe
maximum ot these tolls. llut even in its
capacity of common carrier, Mr. Masou
holds that the rallroad's charges are subject
to the state. The carrier, accordlng to law.

Whether it is uureajonable or not is a ques
tion for judicial declsiou, but it is compe-
tent for the legislature to pass a schedule of
rates whlch wlll be obligatory on the courls
as a rule of evideuce.
llut it is further urged by the railroads
tbat thelr chartera are of tbe uature of
contract, and cannot be impalred by subse
quent state leglslatlon about charges. Mr.
Masou replies tbat the statutes whlch con
ferred the charter conslst of two clauses

secoudly, a legislatlve declaratiou ot the
amouut of toll to be consldered reasonable.

There is a cood deal of religlous lazlness

Chrlstian worker who is overwrought, one
who dles too soon, or ls lald aside, through

so rare that a small volume would probably
contaln the records of all such lives in a
generatlon. There are more churches dyiug
for want of worklng pastors than there are
pastors dying through excesslve work for
their churches. There are Sabbath-schools
that are lauguishing because of want of
energy in those who conduct tuem. inere
are classes that make no progress because

wanted is a revival of Christlan energy and

difference is suflicient to transfer the pea
growing business (especially adapted to
Vermont) to the Now Y'ork countles west of
