No need hast thou to show Powers, while skies do glow With summer hues. Useless they lie, Thy skates, thy wide snow shoes. Calmly, thou Bittest still In silent wait. Thy time, thy day will come When skies grow cold and wan, Iron John ! The Island children play After the August butterflies That have BO brief a day. Thou watchest them With eyes serene; Summer must come between The battles fierce, with snow Colder than deat.i In icy ways. Dost dream of moaning winds and storms at dawn Iron John! What secrets hast "thou learned Of thy strange guests? What thoughts thy guests, What truths in thy soul burned? Methinks I see the pallid sky. Hear bitter blasts arise and die, Wailing against thy strength In ghostly cry 1 Methinks I bear the pines Thrumming a solemn note, As if vast harps Were touched by spirit hands, Urging thee on to the chase Betwixt the lakes and lands. Again and again the clang Of thy steel comes, cutting and keen ; The sweep and rush of thy strength. As thou fleest until unseen, Fleeing ever and on, Iron John I Ah, there will be a chase 'Twixt the dark and the dawn, Iron John! A wind more shrill and more keen , Than ever thou dreamed upon, Iron John !

WASHINGTON, NOV. 15.-The class who imagine the President is not sore over the recent elections have false bearings. He is more than mortified. The deep gulf into which a so recent victorious party has been hurled affects him, true not visibly, but deep-seated all the same. The President now hopes by some change of base, which is to b? as original as sensational, to divert the pablic mind from the recent disaster. He is satisfied that his radical free trade attitude is a mistake, and that it was re pudiated at the polls. His game is now for something new to absorb public attention, and which will for the nonce silence the clamor for free silver and dim to the mem ory his own crusade for free coal and iron. Something it is known is going to drop. The President admits this much in the machine inter view he caused to be promulgated to excuse the indignity he heaped upon Secretary Carlisle. He is going to reform the currency, and on this feature his message to Congress will be couspicnous. Just what he intends to do is as yet vague. The general principle, however, of his new effort to raform is to have the government go out of the banking business, and to have all the paper money issued by the national banks. This would be, of course, State banking done in the States, but by corporations chartered by Congress. The de tails of such a plan are too multi farious to anticipate, but the work is going on and the more conspicu ous bankers of New York city are furnishing the suggestions which the President, it seems, is too ea^er to adopt. It is becoming almost a byword in Washington that the i seat of power over the finances ib not in the stone edifice known as the treasury building, but near Wall street in New York city, and that Sub-treasurer Jordon is the herald Mecury who bears direct to the President the desires of the bank-, ing class and studiously avoids Secretary Carlisle, * Special Committee Report.

THEY MF.ET IN ATLANTA AT BROKER RODDEY'S CALL. MP. Roddey's Plan Adopted . Committee on Convention Ap pointed-The Scheme as Proposed. ATLANTA, GA., NOV. 21.-AD im portant meeting of cotton growers representing several StateB occur red in Atlanta to-day. They were called here to con sider a plan recently suggested by J. T. Roddey, a cotton broker of New York, for controlling the price of cotton. The meeting was presided over by Hector D. Laue, commissioner of agriculture of Alabama. After some discussion, the plan as announced by Mr. Roddey was, on motion, recommended. Chair man Lane and one or two others dissenting. A committee was ap pointed consisting of J. T. Rnddey, H. S. Lipscomb, of South Carolina, and J. E. Nunnally, of Georgia, to oall county and State conventions for the election of delegates to an interstate convention to be held at a time and place to be agreed upon by the committee. Mr. Roddey's plan as explained by him, is to form a combination of the cotton growers with a capi tal of $50,000,000 or $100,000,000. Each cotton producer is to contrib ute one bale out of every five made to the trust. Estimating the crop at 8,000,000 bales, this plan would stock the trust with 1,600,000 bales, the withdrawal of which form the market, it is urged will appreciate the price 25 per cent. One general office is proposed with branch offices and warehouses at all cotto receiving points. The gins every county are to be listed aud possible, controlled so as to know the exact production and to regu In regard to the management o the company, it is to have one gen eral or head office, say in New York Dr New Orleans, with two genera directors from each cotton grow ing State ; have one office in each State with one director from each county in that State and have sub jffices in all the principal cities iud towns in the different States ;o control the local cotton, all to be ?outrolled by the general or head >ffice; have either a special in urance company organized, or the >reseut companies brought to a ow rate ; let company warehouse eceipts be issued with insurance olicies aud if the farmer needs loney, let the company advance im five-eighths or two-thirds of tie value of his warehouse re aipts.

It produces a $rry, that is very similar in all spects to coffee and can be eily raised in this climate. The irmer has received a sample om Mr. Martin, and it has the me aromatic odor, and produces delicious a beverage as the i m - irted article. The seed is put up 25 and 30 cents packages, and ch seed produces a plant from lich a pint to a quart of coffee is thered. It can be planted until ne 20th. and matures in four >nths.

Do Cow Peas Planted Among Corn Decrease the Yield? G. H. Turner in Practical Farmer. We were very much interested in reading the experience of Mr. A. L. Driggs, of Walker, Mo.; also Prof. Massey's comments thereon. We have raised cow peas for the past twenty-four years. In one in stance our corn was seriously dam aged and the. yield sensibly de creased by peas, but this decrease in the yield, though plainly attrib utable to the peas, was altogether owing to the improper way in which said peas were planted. In that instance corn and peas were planted alternately in the same drill (rows four feet apart, corn three feet, single stalks in drill, with a hill of peas between each two hills of corn) ; the peas grew luxuriantly and made a fine yield, but they so sapped the corn that it was almost a failure. We will now state a little experience we gained in 1875. A neighbor of ours planted a piece of rich creek bottom laud m corn (checked four) feet apart each way). After the coru came up the laud was laid off between the rows of corn and peas (black peas) were planted at each intersection of the rows. Both corn and peas throve finely until earing time; at that time (July) the corn was in heavy roasting ear, the j.eas of normal growth and blooming. It com menced raining, and rained oft' and on for a week ; at the end of that time it finished off with a wind which, owing to the ground being saturated with water, and the corn being extra heavy and fine, leveled the corn until it looked as if a roller had passed over it. The corn made a futile effort to straighten itself up again, but the peas just spread themselves until the com,well, it simply "wasn't) nowhere ;" one could not have told that corn had ever been planted there that year. Not a single blade 3orn was gathered where the pros pects had been good for thirty bushels to the acre. We have often seen the final i field of corn seriously abridged bv j 3lanting peas among (more espe- t sially in the drill with) the corn, j Another popular plan of sowing ^ Deas, but a plan we cannot too c trongly condemn, is that of strew ng them in the middles and cover- f ug them by the plow at layiug-by ^ ime. This plan may not iujure s he corn, but it is death to the j eas. p While the soil possessed its vir- ?? in freshness peas would mature a a ne crop planted this way, but the 8 me for slighting them in any such C( manner is past; slipshod meth is must now be abandoned. We ave tried raising peas by all the ^ irious methods in vogue, and out- ? de of devoting ground exclusively * them, giying them the same cul- -. cation as auy other hoed crop, L ive found the following plan for ^ ?th corn and peas the best: Plant corn in rows four and a j ilf or five feet apart. Plant peas ? center between the rows of corn ; " cultivating the corn the peas t one good working, which we id actually essential to best re- * Its. Here (in latitude 32 or 33 grees) we make it a rule to plant - as each week in May As long the land is planted to corn we ictice this sort of rotation: , anting corn on the old pea row iis to give the corn the benefit ^ the nitrogen stored up by the , is), and peas on the old corn net v. iVe are actually so enthused on j1 i "Pea as a Fertilizer" question, .? it we honestly believe the fer- . ty of land may be indefinitely )t up (if not actually increased) a rigid adherence to this short ^ot are ation. Be that as it may, of one ^ ng we are assured, viz. : That ori -e this practice kept up, the K 3t costly element of fertility the mer has to buy would not have * )e purchased, would be raised c^a home, and would enable the auc ner to the more easily purchase ve^ I pay cash for the potash and 0WI sphates removed by each corn arn i. "All praise the bridge that yon .ies them safely o'er," such be- tow the case, we have no desire to ^an in exception to such a general or i j we have found the above plan ?* ^ ire plan, sure for both peas and I. Even at this distance apart . ? the corn the peas easily reach jj-jj top of the corn stalks (ten to qUe] ve and even fifteen feet high), I you though not enough to make the corn blow down. We have thought, and are still of the same opinion} that the peas (planted according I to latter plan) instead of being det rimental to the corn were, on the contrary, an actual benefit to same (owing to the shade of the vines retarding evaporation), said evap oration in our opinion would use up the soil moisture much faster and more completely than the pea vines would. They not only retain the mois ture in the ground for their own use^ but for that of the corn also. We "would rather have peas plant ed between th? rows of all our) corn than to let the middles lie naked, even if we never gathered a | single pea. Our usual yield, plant ed in this way, is forty bushels of corn and ten bushels of peas per acre. Planted in this manner, we have never seen the^'ield of corn decreased by, or on account of the peas being planted among it; on the contrary, we believe them to be actually beneficial to the corn, and that, let it be ever so droughty, the yield will be larger with them than without. Lafayette County, Miss. Sleeping With Baby. Exchange. The free-from-care and easy taking old bachelor, who in his momentary lapse of wisdom, thinks of matrimony should at the same time think of the remote but con tingent possibility of his having to sometimes sleep wiiu a baby, should he marry. Years of experi ence of martyrdom of this kind, says a writer, makes me feel it to be my duty to set forth the misery arising from a contingency of this kind. The baby, if he happens to be a lusty little fellow of eight or ten months, will decline to stay cover ed, and will also decline to allow you to keep yourself covered.

Within the last few years science has been at work in the matter of dyeing, and the results are the fast diamond dyes for cotton-turkey red, pink, purple, orange, olive green, brown, etc. These dyes make colors so fast that even wash ing in strong soap-suds will not start them. If a woman is sure to get the fast diamond dyes for cot ion when she wants to dye cotton, she will be able to dye absolutely fast, non-fading colors that will stay until the goods are worn out. A practical dyer, writing to The Weavers' Herald, says : "I used to dye with roots and barks, but after all my work, (and it was a tedious job,) I was not satisfied, for the colors were homely and often faded. At last I commenced to use dia mond dyes, and the process is so simple and easy that the work is a pleasure. I have used carpets made of rags dyed with diamond dyes three years, and the co'ors are still as when new." Many of the diamond dye fast cotton colors are so superior to other dye-stuffs that they are used by dyers everywhere, even in the big mills and the large dye houses. Imitators of these reliable dyes may claim that their cotton dyes are "just as good," but practical tests prove the diamond is the on ly kind that makes colors which soap will not wash out or sunlight fade. The diamond dves * The number of the dead near Bassano was considerable. Curi ous to ascertain the loss of the memv, Bonaparte in the evening rode over the field with his staff, vhen their notice was attracted by ;he bowlings of a dog, that seem id to increase in proportion as hey approached the spot whence hey proceeded. "In the deep lilence of a beautiful moonlight light," said the Emperor, "a dog eaped suddenly from beneath the lothes of his dead master, rushed ipon us, and then immediately re urned to his hiding-place, howling 30st piteously. He alternately icked his master's hand, and ran Dwarda us, as if at once soliciting id and seeking revenge. Whether, wing to my own particular turn of lind at that moment, the time, the lace, or the actiou itself I knew ot, but certainly no incident on ay field of battle ever produced ) deep an impression on me. I [voluntarily stopped to contem .ate the scene. This man, thought has friends in the camp, or in s companj', and here he lies for ,ken by all except his dog.
