Editor Telegraph: During the recent
tour ol the Georgia farmers through Ohio,
nothing was more Instructive or Interest
Ing than the avenge Ohio home in the

The approach to the bouse was through
a lawn more or leas elaborate in size. It
was either covered with the luxuriant
had or its walks bordered with exquisite
and charming flowers. Sometime both
were combined and arranged with skill and
excellent taste. The building, if a frame,
was paln'ed white and the doorsteps were
of stone. The entire outward appearance
was attractive to the stranger, Irom the
promise of comfort within.
The door opens and everything indi
cates the perfuctieo of neatness. The very
, arrangement ot the furniture, the orna
ments on the walls, and the position of the
books Impress one with the idea of culture
and good taste. There is one object that

The rooms are smaller in dimension, but
they are not over-crowded.
The kitchen is a model of convenience
and cleanliness. The stove is always
burnished and the cooking utensils bright
and kept In plane. The wood is always at
hand and the kindling always prepared for
tha match. The store boas to near at
hand and the provisions barreled and
boxed, and so complete are the arrange
ments, and so compact the space occupied.

At the beginning of the war there was a
peculiar idea of things which suggested
negro slavery as the basis af wealth ia
Georgia. More negroes demanded mart
land, and more land more negroes. The
emancipation of one destroyed 30 per cent
of the value of the other, so as that
Georgia actually lost not less than 70 per
cent of her values. Whea tha destruction
