Improved Stock tor California.—
James Quinn, Yreka, California, writes :"I
eeo Oscar Eaton Is dri.iDg the same kind
of nails East that most of our cattle men
drive here, to wit: that cattle can be raised
In large herds roving through the dry,
worthless mountain lands so cheap that
those investing iv good stock and land
cannot compete with them. I wish tho
Club would discuss this subject." Mr.
Curtis expressed the opinion that the roam
ing herds of the plains must have infused
into them fresh and improved blood, or
they will surely degenerate. And it will
always pay some one to keep and supply
such stock. The cautious Commander said
that was an opinion ; but aro thero any
facts which go to show that this supply
must be kept up ? Mr. Bragdon said
yes—that the history of our own im
proved stock proved it. Our improvements
had been made by stock imported from
England, where a more scientific and civi
lized system of breeding obtained. And
there had always been a demand fur this
improved stock, notwithstanding tho com
parative cheapness with which common
cattle can be produced on the Western
prairies. Indeed, the demand for improved
blood from those prairies had resulted in
building up some of tho best herds of
Short Ilorns ia the country there, and de
veloped a skill and perfection in breeding
which is not excelled in the East. Mr.
Williams said he knew that some of the
largest ranchemen of California were al
ready buying some of the best bulls of the
best breeders in the East with a view of
counteracting the natural tendency lo
degeneration resulting from their system
of feeding.

Interesting Infobmation About Gov r
etnment Lands.—H. M. Deming, Wichi
la, Kansas, writes :In tho session of April
11, Mr. Lyman read a paper for the infor
mation of those who wish to emigrate
West, in which there are some mistat e
ments which I write this to correct. Speak
ing of the twonty-mile strips of land in what
is known as railroad limits, ho says:—
«'These belts of land aro laid out in check
ers of one mile square. Tho odd squares
belong to the country, tho even squares to
the railroad. These odd squares cannot
be bought at government price ; they are
reserved for homesteads. Auy family man
can have title to an eighty-acre homestead
by going and settling on it. Any soldier
of the late war who can show au honora
ble record receives twice as much as an
other citizen —he gets 160 acres." Further
on he seems to use tho terms pre-empt and
homestead interchangeably.
Now, Ist the even numbered Bquarcs are
the ones which "belong to the country,"
and out of these the squares numbered 10
and 36 are reserved for public school pur
poses. 2. Tho Government disposes of
this land the same way that it does other
public lands, except that tho price is dou
bled, and one can only homestead half as
much, so that the Government actually
receives as much revenue from the railroad
belt as from other portions of the public
domain. The only exception to this is tho
case of honorably discharged soldiers, who
can homestead as much in the railroad lim
itß as out of it. These lands can be bought
at Government price, $2.60 per acre, by
actual settlers. This constitutes what is
known .as pre-emption. Any citizen 21
years old or the head of ■ family
can pre-empt 180 acres. A land
warrant can bo used as in tho case
of other lands, by paying tho extra $200 ;
that is, a land warrant and $200 will pre
empt 160 acres. Two land warrants can
not be used on one piece of land. 3. The
homestead right is not restricted to "family
men." Any citizen who is twenty-one, or
who ia the head of a family, male or
female. It is not necessiry that they be
twenty-one If thoy are beads of families.
One who haß pre-empted can homestead,
but one cannot pre-empt who has home
steaded. 4. A homestead settler does not
havo to pay for his land as the pre-empter
does. Ho pays tho office ani survey lees,
$15 for 80 acros, at the laud office when
he makes his entry, and then ho gots hi 3
titlo when he can prove five years' actual
residence on the land, without further ex
pense.
Many persons wanting 160 acres in the
railroad limits, build on the line separat
ing the two eighties, and then pre-empt
one-eighty and homestead the other, pre
empting first—both could be done the same
day. A person wishing to locate should
decide which section of the country ho de
sires to examine, and go to the land office
and get township plots, with the land
which is open to settlement marked on
them. They cost $1 each, and a man, by
spending a few dollars in this way, can
save niaoy times as much by the readiness
with which he can iind a suitable tract not
already taken.
Borrowing and Lending Tools.—The
commandor of the club announced that he
bad received from Mrs. J. N. Sturtevaut,
a member of the Framingham (Mass.)
Farmers's Union, a copy of tho "rules and
regulations concerning letting tools,"
adopted by tbe "said Union, the object of
whose organization is thus explained:
Whatever may be tbe cause, expensive and
efficient agricultural implements are not in
common use. To purchase machinery capable
of great remits, an outlay is often incurred oat
of proportion to the profits of agriculture.
But a groat variety of tbe best tools owned in
New England communities are worked to but
a fraction of their capacity, although they are
of vital importance to rural industry. No
where else are they so much needed. Like
money, farm machinery is locked in tbe strong
holds of a few.
To release these implements and diffuse their
usefulness, to place tbe best tools within the
reach of every farmer, is the object of this
Association.
The charge-list is forwarded on business
principles. Tools will not be let unless both
parties are benefited. As all "persons may be
aided, we invite thum to extend the usefulness
of this system by adopting its methods.
The following rules are established wilh
regard to borrowing and lending :
1. Lenders will exact care in the manage
ment of tools.
2. Hirers must pay for damage occasioned
by carelessness.
3. Tbe time upon whicb a charge is based
shall be estimated from tbe talcing of the tool
until the same is returned. Any part of a day
■ball for this purpose be regarded as a whole
Jay, except as hereinafter provided.
4. Tools wilt not be lot for a single day for a
less turn than 10 cents.
.. Terms are strictly caßb.
H. Ia all cases of disagreement between a
hirer and tbe owner concerning a tool the ar
bitrators of this association shall decide, and
tbeir decision shall he final.
7. No member of this association shall in
any case allow his implements to be used on
any other terms than those stated in tbe oharge
list of the association, except it be for the pur
pose of charity.
8. All persons taking tools from any mem
ber of this association shall be governed by
these rules.
The Commander said that the Umou has
a secretary, aud includes some of Boston's
best business meu who have got away
from th. Hub but .tnong tha "f.lloos,"
Lo )kinjf over the rates of prices fn tho
* "charge list," he notices that thfl rate per
- day for an axo i._ 10 tents ; a famiing-mill
• 75 cents ; hay press $3.

' It ia eTldt'Ut to all Intelligent ininila that the tlmo
I h_ come wh%n those engaged In rural pursuits
should bare an *organf/ation devoted entirely to
! their interest!, gucii it li Intended to make tho
1 Order of Patrons It was instituted In 1*67; lis
growth is uni>rucoduut«d in the history of secret as
sociations, and it is acknowledged one ofthe most
useful and powerful, or*;anf7..tions in the United
Statea. Its grand objects are not ouly general im
provement in husbandry, but to Increase the general
happiness, wealth, and proaperity of the country. It
ia founded upon tbo axioms that tho products of
the soil comprise the basis of all wealth ; that indi
vidual happiness depends upon general proaperity,
and that the wealth of a oountry depends upon tho
general intolllgonce and mental culture of the pro
ducing classes.
In the meetings of this Order all but members are
excluded, and there la In its proceedings a symbol
ized ritual, pleasing, beautiful, and appropriate,
which is desigued not only to charm the fancy, but
to cultivate and enlarge tbe lnind and purity the
boar t, having at the same time, strict adaptation to
rural pursuits.
Tho secrecy of the ritual and proceedings of the
Order have buen adoptod chiefly for tho purpoae of
accompllahing .eaircd efficiency, extension, and uni
ty, and to socure amoug ita members, in tho intornal
working of tbo Order, confldenco, harmony, and so
curity.
Woniou are admitted to full inernberbbip, and
wo solicit the co-operation of women because ol a
conviction that without her aid succobs will be less
certAin and decided. Mnch might bo said In this
connection, but every husband and brother knowa
that where he .an bo accompanied by bia wife or
slater no lessons will be learned but those of purity
and truth.
The' Order of the Patrons of Husbandry will ac
complish a thorouglr systematic organization among
Farmers and Horticulturists throughout tho United
.tatos, and will secure amoug them intimate social
relations and acquaintance wilh each other, for the
advancement and elevation of their pursuits, with
an appreciation and protection of their true interests.
Uy ■ ii.-l. means may be accomplished that which
exists throughout tho oountry in all atbor avocationa
and among all other classes —combined co-operative
asaociation for individual improvement and common
benefit.
Among tha advantages which nitty be derived from
tho Order are syateuiutic arrangements tor prccur
iog and diaseminating, in tho most expeditious man
ner, information relative to crops, demand and sup
ply, prices, markets, and tratiaportation throughout
tho country ; also for the purchase and exchange of
stock, seeds, and desired varieties of plants and
trees, and for tbo purpose of procuring help at home
or from abroad, and situations for persons seeking
employment; also for ascertaining and testing tbo
merits of newly-invonted farming iiupiemen-i and
those not in gener.l use, and for detecting and ex
posing those that are unworthy, and for protecting,
by all available means, the farming interests from
fraud aud deception, and combinations of every kind.
We ignore all political or religious discussfona in
the Order; we do not aolicit the patronage of any
sect, association or individual, upon any grounds
whatever except upon the intiinsic merit of tho Or
der.
Tho better to securo groator benefits to our mem
bars, we desire to establish Granges In every city,
town, and villago in the United Hl.les. Information
relative to organizing may be obtained by addressing
the un.el-sigued, or either of the General

I was provided with four pocket chronometers for
umo in astrououiir.il observations. I also had with
me au "Elgin" which I rated from time to time to
gether with the chrouometors by observations with
the sextant. Of the five instruments it. rate was the
•■■.•■ni beet With the ordinary disturbance due to
transportation, lis rate was thu least variable, while,
with tlie nxtra-rdiuary disturbauce incident to such
au expt.dit.ou, it was the ouly instrument ou which
1 could roly, the chronometers at last becoming use

STARKE'S DIXIE PLOW.
1 MR. F. C. WILLIAMS. 0*
13 the county of Nottoway, a nnmber of gen
tlemen adeombled at hia roiridence Saturday, Decern
1 ber 10, to teat by practical oxptriment the compar
ative ralue of the DIXIE PLOW, manufactured by
-Starke k Co.. and any other that might enter th.
field of competition.
The plows were taken to the field at half pa«t two
P. M., the following gentlemen acting «a jadges : Y.
W. Kpes, .1. It. Williams. Robert Scott, Jas. 8. ftll
liam. Wm. T. Christian, Richard JBpea, Dr. DarriDg,
Sidney Graren, Walton Sydnor, F. C. Williams, O.
N. Beay„ and J. M. Hurt. Mr. 8. Graves and Walton
Sydnor were the principal plowmen. Mr. W. Sydnor
working the Watt plow and 8. Graves the Dixie —
both of whom handled them with masterly skill and
succeas.
The plows entered were the Dixie two horse right
and left-band plows, aud the Watt twodiorse left
hand. Soon after the trial commenced, tbe beam of
the Dixie right-band broke in two and was laid
aside, the contest being narrowed to the Watt left
hand and Dixie left-hand. Tbe soil first selected
was a stubble loam without soil ; but as the plows
were new, and did not turn in consequence of the
roughness of the castings, after a short trial it was
decided to take them into another field where the
soil was a well-trodden, tenacious clay, with a timo
thy sod covered with vegetation and with straw.
_ The plows here performed their work admirably,
cutting and turning clear without choking.
As tbe Dixie was a new comer, as tbe contest
wax i'd warm most of the Judges took hold of it to
test personally its practical working. While there
is no intention to do injustice to any, as neither
party had agent or representative present, and Loth
plows did well, yet the trial, with the award of the
judges, is deemed of sufficient importance to tho in
terest of agriculture to Justify its publication.
Tbe award of the Judges was unanimously In favor
of the Dixie on the lollowiiig grounds:
Ist. It cut a deeper furrow.
2d. It cut a wider furrow.
3d. It more effectually inverted the Bod.
4th. The draft seemod to be no greater.
&th. The m, ,:|i(ihi. ni arrangement for altering cut
was deemed more simple and efficient.
At the conclusion of the trial somo of the Judges
wero so pleased as to determine to order them for
their own use. J. M. HURT, Secretary.
I certify that the above was sent to the Richmond
"Whig" for publication by myself; that I am not
acquainted with Mr. Starke; that he had nevor seen
tbe paper and knew nothing of its contents, and was
in no wise a purty to the trial of the plows alluded
to J. M. HURT.

Dr. J. addresses all those who have injured them
selves by improper Indulgence aud solitary habit,
which ruin both body and mind, unfitting them f.i
either business, study, society or marriage.
These are some of the sad and melancholy eff.ie'
produced by early habits of youth, viz: Weakuoos ol
the Back and Liuibs, Pains iv the Uead, Dimness ot
Sight, Loss of Muscular Power, Palpitation of the
Heart, Dyspepsia, Nervous Irritability, Doraugement
of the Digestive Fuuctlena, General Debility Syoiti

The fearful effects on the mind ere much to be
dreaded. Loss of Memory, Ooufusion of Ideas Do
pruvslou of Spirits, Evil yorobodings, Aversion to
Society, Self-distrust, Lovoot Solitude, Timidity Ao
are some of the evils produced. ' '
Thousands of persons of all ages can now Judge
what is the cause of their declining health loosing
their vigor, bocoming weak, pale, nervous and ema
ciated, having a singular appearance about th. eyes
cough and symptoms of cuusumption. '

sssary requisites to promote connubial happiness; In
deed, without taese, the Journey throueh life becomes
a weary pilgrimage, the prospect hourly darkens to

and filled with the melancholy reflection that the
happiness of another becomes blighted with our own.
