It was lonely but the invig orating air. the pure mountain water, iagnlfieent s.-enery had charms for a clty man whl*-h even now ap Ppar vividly berore us. The supprr that night wa. scrv.-d by the ladles and we bonored guesr. whlle Dr. Jefferson. siler.t and .mll ing came in for reeognltion and waa happy over tbis reereatlon from the routlne of his dtj lif. THI horses IN' THE BfORNINO. It was 5 o'clock Tueaday moralng wo awoke after havlng spent a restful n'ght. and yet disliking to get up to begln the day's journey. We ate breakfast and atappad otit uiron the porch. Away upon the aide of the mountain. two horses were be? ing fed by the driver rrom Appala chia. He h?d come up the evenlng before as the mountain roads are too rc.ugL and dangerous to be travelled nfter dark. ROITOH ROAD It was 6 o'clock Tueaday mornlng when we bld our friends at Keokee adleu and struck out down the moun? tain road for Appalachia. At one time we were golng through the for ests. then on the outakirta of plowed' ground, then through tne 'yards" of a saw mill, then through deeerted railroad camp. Sometimes the wheels of the six-seat wagon known *?a a hack were a foot in a mudhole and then again the left wheels were highly elevated above the right ones and Dr. Jefferson waa steadi'.y etates Ing the opposite slde of the wagon for aupport ln order to keep from being hurled down the slde of the mountain to the rushing waters be? low. A DANGEROUS JOURNEY. Sometimes the wheels of the 'hack" were not over 18 inches from the edge of n *aaTj|.fiw. ?0 ;A*; jt,wn which meant serlous injury or death. The horses were sure-footed and th* driver used the hreak with a famlliar Ity and preeision that were astonish ing. There were timea when the front part of the hack was almost perpendicular to the rear. but the horses weiat on. A MULE BARS 1**TE WAT. They could not trot or run; it was a fast walk. We met a small mule in the road way. it barred the way of our team but the horsea went stamdlly on. The mule turned a round. whlnnied and kicked up its heela a: the approachlng team. but was never near enough to do any Ya?m**c" Fln-nT 1' ***ent up on tha side of the mountain and walted un? til we passed and then came itaafar Ing on behind Reaehlng a lower part of tbe road. a white boy stopped the mule by throwing rocks at it and forclng it to slop Its Journey. BjUNO A MOUKTAINEl.R. I' remained standing sullenly. look ing ln our dlrectlon until we had disappeared from vtew. "Let mc pasa, > ii," arafl the plea from our driver to a whlto mountaineer. who readily responded. We did not! here and how we could pasa as ft of the mountain was on the atlaj* of a decllvity that led to the valley below. v. .? passed hlm and Dr. Jefferson remarked to hlm that .4. were trying to make the train. "I think you'U make lt." was'tiM remark. DOWN T.UK MOUNTAIN.

Dr. Jefferson nodded annroval and proo-eerfed to give b's views on the teniperanoe questlon whlle we sank back in a chalr near tlie wlndow and continued our work of wrltlng the .article. Wa left Pulaski St S:44 for Richmond and when we reached Roanoke sat down in the palatlal station to await the arrlval of the next train. \ A LEATHER WlNO BAT. There was a commotlon ln the dlning hall. We went to see the cause of tho trouble. A iegther wtng* bat had entered the plaee and was flying about with all of the energy of Its klnd. An attendant was on top of one of the dlning tables. stand ing on a chalr. swinglng a broom, valnly attemptlng to knock down the bat. but with no success. Another was throwing a rag rolled up, ball fashlon at the intruder. CARRIED OFF HIS TROPI.Y. The white attendant got tlred and another one took his plaee. Hc missed many tlmes but flually got ln a knockout blow and tho bat fell to the floor apparently lifeless. The attendant carrled out his trophy tri umphantly showing it to hla observ ing friends. We left for Richmond and as we nodded and swoke with a start, we aaw Dr. Jefferson being dlsturbevl in hls aeat by a colored lady who want od hlm to let her have the seat near the wlndow ja?t for a moment In order to wav* her handkerchlef to friends ahe was leaving behind. She did not get up afterwards and the Doctor and the widow were soon in dulging ln a llvely converaatlon on the Scriptures. A WIDOW'S BB MENT were wlde-awake now and aa certalned that the lady had been a I wldow for ten months. Tbe Doctor ! advlsed her to ask the Lord for an? other husbaad. We tnlnk that she followed hls advice and from the look out of her eyes at her good looking companlon we are of the o plnion that she net only asked the Iaord to send her a huaband but nanieu him as the one wanted.

The average crop of onions raised by the methods in common use should not be less than 600 bushels to the acre. as we have proved here, and by the better methods above described. should be conslderably more. Accompanying is an illustration of a home-made onion topper which we found very convonient. As wlll be no ticed, the knlfe is an ordinary corn cutter.

The water would have to be elevated ten or fifteeir feet. The plant to be inclosed would be 10x18 feet. with an open platform 6x18 feet. the whole to be elevated about thirty inches from ground. or on a lovel with spraylng wagon. The tank to b vated high enough so water would flow from bottem naturally to strainer Bf top of spraylng tank. A two-lnch rubber hose could be used for this. In one end of bullding a water heater could be placed lf warm water should be needed.
