Bow grass seed on vacant spots in

Firewood (should be provided for win
ter, if not alrerdy attended to.
Trim the sides of ditches, and cut
down all weeds in fence-corners, etc.
Everything that can be done this
month had better bo done now than

Potatoes that are ripe should be dug
early, so as to be out of the way of
pressing work next month.
Make the weeds grow and then kill
them next spring. To do this plow and
harrow as much as possible.
If prices are satisfactory sell at once.
This is always a safe rule for everything,
but it is emphatically so for potatoes
and c'ther bulky articles.
Attend the fairs, and take your hired
men and boys with you. Try and in
terest tliem in the implements, ma
chines, and improved stock.
Drawing out manure for grass land
may be done at any time this month
when the men and teams are available.
Spread it at once and evenly.
Corn should be cut as soon as the
grain is glazed. The fodder will be
wanted next winter. Better cut too
early than run the risk of having it in
jured by frost.
Ditching on low land can now be done
to advantage. Commence at the outlet
and make the water follow you tip into
the land until your ditch is from three
to four feet deep. In this way you will
lose no fall.
Clover seed should be ready to cut
this month. Nearly all our combined
reaper and mower machines cut it to
perfection and rake it into bunches.
The crop should be well cured and put
in the barn. It is a difficult crop to se
cure in a stack without thatching. It
is better not to thrash until cold weather
In England, great crops of wheat are
raised by turning over a clover sod and
drilling in the wheat as fast as the land
is plowed. We could do the same thing
here provided our land was in as high
condition and the season was wet
enough to insure the germination of
the seed and the growth of the young
We spend labor enough in many
cases in preparing our land for wheat,
but rarely give time enough. To plow
twice in two or three weeks, and harrow
and roll until the laud is as mellow as a
garden, is not the way to secure a good
wheat crop. The same amount of labor
expended over a longer period would
produce far better results.
The ladies should by all means go
to the fair and have a good time. They
should go to enjoy themselves. Take
a basket of refreshments along. The
eating arrangements at our fairs are
usually of the most wretched descrip
tion. If you see one of the Agricul
turist's editors around, looking tired
and hungry, ask him to have a bite.
Animals. When hay is scarce and
high, as it now is with us, it is desirable
to let all the animals run at pasture.
Horses when running at pasture, un
less it is unusually good, should not be
worked as many hours as when fed on
hay and grain. They require more
time to eat. Give a feed of nnts mnv...
lug, noon, anu night. Oroom well at
night before turning them out.
Cows will pay well for a little extra
food night and morning. Corn-meal is
now the cheapest food we have. It
should be mixed with cut feed.
Sheep do not require any special care
this month, but should not be neglect
ed. See that the ram does not get to
the flock of ewes unless you wish very
early lambs. If you do, select out the
strongest ewes and feed them a little
grain for a week or so, or until they are
Lambs should be weaned, and the
ewes put in a rather poor pasture and at
some distance from the lambs. Let the
hiinbs have the best of pasture and half
a pint of grain each day. Milk the
ewes if necessary.
Dip the sheep in a solution of carbolic
soap to kill ticks and prevent scab, etc.
Swine. Pigs that are fat should be
disposed of. Pigs intended for fatten
ing this fall should be X'nshed forward
as rapidly as possible. Let them run
out at pasture if convenient, but give
them all the corn they will eat.
Breeding sows should have the run of
a good clover or grass pasture. They
will require little other food.
Young pigs ought t o get the richest
and best of food. There is nothing so
good as skimmed milk and cooked corn
meal. American Agriculturist.
The 'ova Scotia Gale.
Additional particulars of the recent
disastrous storm on the Nova Scotia
coast como to hand. It is estimated
that thirty vessels, with all hands, were
lost in the North Bay alone. The loss
of property on shore is immense. In
Cape Breton, those farmers who have
lost their barns will have difficulty in
saving their crops. It is feared there
will be starvation among the fishermen;
and it is probable that even among the
farmers, who sustained heavy losses by
the gale, there will be much suffering.
The country will not get over it for
Fifty-six vessels are ashore at Ari
chat, some of which have been con
demned and sold.
Many wrecks have been found at sea,
deserted, with little if any chance that
the crews have been saved, and alto
gether the loss of life and property is
most disastrous.
Settled It.
When the three-months' men were
called out, says Thurlow Weed, the
Colonel of some regiment an insignificant-looking
fellow appealed to me to
help him off. What do you want ?'
I asked. 'Well,' said he, 'I've ordered
some accoutrements for men, and the
manufacturer won't let us have them
until he can be sure of his money !' I
wrote a note which settled that matter,
and the regiment went away. About
three months afterwards a bill was

A Caie In which Borne of the Mont Promi
nent Men In Pennsylranla are Interest-.ed-The
Wonderful Adventure! of a
Claimant to 940,000,000.
There is now pending in the State
courts of Pennsylvania, says a Mauch
Chunk correspondent of the New York
Sun, one of the most important lawsuits
on record. It was instituted by Mr. O.
H. Wheeler, a lawyer of this place. It
is for the recovery of 4,000 acres of val
uable coal lands in Luzerne county, Pa.,
saia to do wortn $f4U,uuu,UU0. The his
tory of the proprietorship of the land
is full of romance.
Some forty years ago there died in a
hospital in Philadelphia a man named
James Turnbnll. He had been a man
of means, and was one of the first to
invest in land in this region when the
discovery of anthracite coal was tardily
followed by mine developments. He
purchased the tract of 4,000 acres in
Luzerne county. Bad speculations led
him to dissipation and he died as stated,
declaring that he still had a title to the
coal land in Luzerne, although others
claimed it by virtue of tax purchase.
A short time before his death his wife
was divorced from him, and given
charge of their only child, a son, also
named James. He lived with his
mother in Philadelphia about ten years
after his father's death, then, at the age
of sixteen, went to sea.
In 1852 the divorced widow, being in
destitute circumstances, and believing
that her son, if living for she had not
heard of him for years was the real
owner of the coal lands in Luzerne
county which her late husband had ne
glected, came to Mauch Chunk and
called on Mr. O. H. Wheeler. He had
formerly been a friend of her husband's,
the two having had years before real
estate transactions together. To him
she stated the case of the ownership of
the land, and exhibited certain papers
in her possession that once belonged to
Wheeler examined the paper, and
searched the record. The result con
vinced him that young Turnbull had,
through his father, a perfect tittle to
the property. He at once set about to
find, if possible, the whereabouts of the
wandering heir. Advertisements were
inserted in the journals of all countries,
in all languages. Letters were written
to every point where it was at all proba
ble that James might be, but without
avail. Not-a word could be obtained
that gave any clue to his whereabouts.
The lands meantime had fallen into the
hands of Asa Packer, the Pardees, and
other famous and powerful capitalists,
who still hold them.
One day, in the fall of 1871, James
Turnbull's mother received a letter
posted in the City of Mexico. It proved
to be from her son. He was living in
Mazatlan, on the western coast of Mex
ico, and wonld in all probability be
home in another year. Thus, after a
ceaseless effort of twenty years, the
lawyer and the mother were at last re
warded with the news of the lost son.
Mr. Wheeler employed a man to go
at once to Mazatlan and bring James to
America. This was done, and about
a year ago Turnbull landed in Phila
delphia. His career had been one of peril,
hardship, and adventure. The vessel
he left Philadelphia in was shipwrecked,
and he and eight others of the crew
were the only ones saved. When the

in St. Thomas before he recovered from
the effects of the fearful voyage after
the wreck, and then embarked on a
British trader. Subsequently he went
to Central America. He worked on the
Isthmus of Panama until the stories of
the discovery of gold in California

years, and went to Mexico, and subse

in capturing cattle for speculators in
New York and Philadelphia. The na

Mexico. On the way to Mazatlan he

Mexican soldiers, and left for dead with

among the silver mines of Peru, getting
possession of a piece of land said to
contain silver deposits. Failing to find
them, he disposed of the property for a
song. In less than a month a rich vein
of silver was opened upon it.
He then went to Chile and worked
under Harry Meiggs, the great South
American railroad prince. By a sub
contract under Meiggs he made several
thousand dollars, and had he possessed

The Had Chinese Lover.
i ' A Yonng Lady's Narrow Escape.
The San Francisco Chronicle fur
nishes the following account of the mad
Chinese lover whose attempt at murder
and subsequent suioide at San Jose
were briefly reported by telegraph :
"The ranch of Mr. Dubois, about
one mile and a half south of San Jose,
was the scene of a startling tragedy.
Mr. Dubois is the father of two daugh
ters, named Blanche and Alice, the lat
ter some eighteen years old. A hand
some young Chinaman named Ah Gim,
employed on her father's ranch, attract
ed by the girl's beauty, fell madly in
love with her, but the passion was not
returned. The almond-eyed Celestial,
however, continued to urge his suit, and
in the madness of his infatuation cut
off his queue, so as to make his person
more acceptable to the object of his
adoration. He was nineteen years of
ago and had been employed by Mr. Du
bois nearly five years. He did not live
with the Dubois family, but occupied a
cabin by himself some distance from the
Failing to win the heart of his ladv-
love, he determined to worship her
picture, aud entreated Miss Alice to
give him her photograph. She in
dignantly refused to grant him even
this favor, whereupon Ah Gim, with the
ciinning of his race, and animated by
his strong attachment for the girl, re
solved upon securing it without her
consent. An opportunity soon present
ed itsel, and the distracted Chinaman
hastened to improve it. While Miss
Alice was absent visiting some friends,
Ah Gim crept into her chamber, and
going to her trunk abstracted a photo
graph of her. His next step was to take
it to an artist in the city whose studio
is on wheels, where he had several
copies of the photograph made, some
of which he sent to his relatives in
After Alice returned from her visit.
Ah Gim manifested unusual anxiety to
have her visit his cabin, saying that he
had something there that he desired to
show her. She informed him that if he
had anything to show her he must bring
it to the heuse. He pleaded earnestly
with her to accept the invitation, add
ing that the object he wished to show
her was nailed to the floor of his cabin.
but met with a positive refusal." In the
meantime Alice discovered the theft of
her photograph, and also ascertained
that it was in the possession of her
Mongolion- suitor. She rebuked him
for ' stealing it, and insisted upon his
returning it at once.
" Ah Gim appeared at the house with
a package in his hand. He walked
quietly into the sitting-room where were
seated Alice and her mother. Stepping
up to the table at which Alice sat he
placed the package on the table, re
marking that those were her pictures.
Without deigning to raise her head, the
young girl impatiently exclaimed : 'Burn
them 1' Goaded to fury by her scornful
words, the Chinaman stepped back a
few paces, drew a five-shooter from his
pocket, aud holding it within about two
leet ot Alice, hred. With a wild shriek
of terror the young girl sprang away
from her chair, and opening one of the
doors, started to run, when the China
man fired another shot. Apparently
neither had inflicted any injury, for the
flight of the terrified girl was unim
peded. As she ran down the main
avenue toward the main road the maniac
again dischorged his revolver, fortu
nately without effect.

her escape was miraculous he returned
to the kitchen, and placing the muzzle
of his weapon against his head fired his
fourth shot into his own brain. The
result was instant death, and he fell on
the floor with his head close to the door.
The coroner summoned a jury in the
afternoon, and after viewing the body
and taking the girl's testimony, ad
journed the inquest until the next day.
" The girl s escape from the bullets
of the assassin was really wonderful.
The first bullet struck her on the left
side, but coming in contact with the
steel stay of her corset glanced off.
The second bullet cut away her apron
strings from behind. The third bullet
whizzed past her left ear. The girl sus

imagined, considerably frightened. Ah

The Kelsey Case.
During the funeral services f Chas.
G. Kelsey at Huntington, L. I., the
Kev. Mr. Knox came forward to the lec
ture. He was very much affected, and
his voice was husky with suppressed
feeling. He said: Dearly beloved
brethren and friends, words are inade
quate to express the condition of the
publio mind of this place on the sub
ject of the fate of the man whose burial
service we are now attending. The ques
tion, when it does arise, carries another
with it: they are synonymous and can
not be separated. The question of the
life or death of Charles G. Kelsey in
volves one of the guilt or innocence of
other people, and neither can be asked
without exciting violent heart-throbbing
and stirring up feelings which are any
thing but pleasant. The name of our
little village has not only been soiled,
but blackened. Where others have de
cided regarding the great question I
have remained undecided, and the
golden balance of Justice is poised on
the diamond point of truth. Hope and
fear are in me, like two deer met upon
a narrow mountain path with antlers
locked, and it requires but a breath to
dush either down the chasm. I am
speaking her to tell of the respect I en
tertain for the convictions of those as
sembled. I am in favor of law and or
der, which should not be outraged.
am decidedly opposed to lynch law.
There are cases where justice is slow or
rather inactive; she is bound hand and
foot, and cannot move where it is re
sorted to; but this iu not the case in
Huntington. All can have their wrongs
adjusted and their differences settled
in a quiet and peaceable way. I care
not by whom the outrage was perform'
ed. I denounce him as a disrespector
of justice. We have learned a lesson
which, if properly taken, is prolifio of
advice and warming. When we consul
er justice we should also consider the
punishment, and if this be done none
will be dealt with too severely. I can
not believe there is a crime so black or
an iniquity so deep but that a flash of
boldly spoken truth would lighten and
fathom it. I insist that some one knew
all of the deed, and could and should
if he has any regard for justice, tell all
he knows. I would rejoice to know who
was the perpetrator or perpetrators of
this most foul and villainous crime, for
tne suspense is terrible and wearing,
The truth must come. If not to you

The Chaparral Cock.
The chaparral cock, or chura, is very
common at this season of the year iu
California. The latter name originated
with the Indians. The chura is about
the size of a curl?w, having a topknot
and a long tail of beautitul colored
feathers. The bird is very useful in
gardens, destroying snakes and all kinds
of insects. It is the dreaded enemy of
the rattlesnake. The manner in which
it destroys this dangerous reptile is pe
culiar. In the heat of the day, when
the snake is asleep, the chura may be
seen carrying leaves of the cholla and
forming a circle around it. As soon as
the circle is complete it throws a leaf
upon the sleeping snake and then pa
tiently awaits developments. The snake
awakes and endeavors to free itself fiom
its Bimple, yet secure position. Its ef
forts are in vain, and it dies, covered
with the prickles of the painful cholla.
The chura then devours its delicious
aud well-earned food. The above is
vouched for by many who have wit
nessed the modus operandi. Thechura,
when pursued, relies entirely upon its
neetness lor escape, it is easily do
mesticated, and when properly cooked.

Avoid the Peril of the Season.
Autumn, although th most radiant portion
the American year, has it drawback. The heavy
evening dew and morning vapor and the great
disparity in temperature between night and day,
give rise to many painful disturbance of the
bowels, such as colic, cholera morbus, diarrhcea
and dysentery. The digestive organs are also un
favorably affected by the change of season, and
dyspeptic generally auffer most severely during
the fall. Derangement's of the liver are likewise
common, and miasmatic fever prevail in newly-
settled district and low-lying and marshy locali
ties. These unpleasant contingencies of the soason
are not, however, unavoidable. By strengthening,
toning and regulating the system with Bostetter'

them. At the expiration of summer all the bodily
