Editor Telegram:?As many of
my West Virginia friends are
wanting to know how farming is
done here, I will through your
worthy paper attempt to give
them a faint idea, how the "Oar
den of the West" is farmed.
In the first place the prairie
sod is broken with a sod plow
drawn by three or four horses
Y Mating it about one and a half
or two inches deep; then it lays
there one year to rot. The next
spring it is turned over with a
stirring plow then it is ready for
a crop of oats or corn ; the oats
are sown with a seeder fastened
on a wagon ; with this arrange
Iment one person can sow forty
or fifty acres in a day.
Corn is planted hero by the
patent "cheek rower." which is
worked as follows : In the first
place a wire with small buttons
aoout threefeet apart isstretched
across the field and this wire
passes through the planter in
such a way that as each button
passes, a hill of corn is planted
and covered, making oach one
exactly the same distance apart
every way. With the aid of this
planter one man can plant 20
acres a day.
Then you so on and you will
see a man a plowing with a gang
plow with four horses all in
abreast, one man doing two men's
ivork turning two furrows at
a time. Later in the season you
will see thfm cutting oats or
wheat with a harvester, cutting
and binding, and at the same time
all you have to do is to pay the
man and set up your grain. Still
later you will see them in hay
harvest cutting: the prairie grass
and stacking it with a stacker,
worked with one horse. The
grass is cut with a mower and
then dried ; then with a machine ,
that is called, go ??Devil." it ,
gathers the hay and draws it to
the stack and then it is put up on
the stack with the stacker with
one horse, no pitching required ;
when our corn gets ripe in the
fall it is cut with a corn cutter
drawn by one horse, cutting two
rows at a time ; two men on the ,
cutter cnt the corn as fast as the
horse walks. Our corn and all
kinds of grain is planted and not
fenced, but we have our pastures
fenced with barb wire.

The Columbian World's Pair at
Chicago was opened May' 1st.
There is a certain propriety in
the concurrence of the exhibition
at this time quite aside from its
being the fourth centenary of the
discovery of the country. The
world is about to abandon the
competitive for the co-operative,
the despotic for the denpocratic
system of industry. We stand
on the verge of this prodigious
change, so long demanded by the
mind and heart of maa. It will
be regarded by future genera
tions as historically fitting that
just at the close of the competi
tive epoch this great exhibition
should do given of the best,
finest and greatest it could ac
complish. The display is doubt
less a fine one and marks a high
degress of progress as compared
with the best that could have
been done undo*' the system of
feudal serfdom which prevailed
in Columbus' day. But even as
meanly and pitiably in all re
spects as a world's fair in Queen
Isabella's day would compare
with that at Chicago, even so
may we expeot that will compare
with the world's fair to be held
maybe in the year 2000 to cele
brate the material progress of
the world in the first century of
the era of fraternal co-operation
upon the basis of equality.
But, though thanks to a sys
tem of scientific and con?erted
production, the world of ti?o fu
tUKysyiH comparewith thilt of
to-day in point of wealth as a
prince to a pauper, we inay" be
sure that to our posterity, look
ing backward, th& material pro
gress made since 1893 will seem
far less important than the moral
advance. At Chicago the exhibits
of pomp and luxury and art rep
resent not the enjoyments of the
many but of the wealthy few.
The wonderful mechanical dis
play presented does not stand for
powers used for and by the peo
ple for the common welfare, but
for devices whereby capitalists
enrich themselves and rule their
fellow men. The underlying
motive of the wholo exhibition,
under a sham pretense of patriot
ism, is business advertising with
a view to individual money-mak
If a world's fair is held in the
year 2000 it will reflect in its dis
play of art and luxury not mere
ly enjoyments attainable by a
few, but the condition of the
masses. The exhibits of machin
ery and tho achievements of men
in yoking the forces of nature
will represent triumphs redound
ing not chiefly to the advantage
of captains of industry and own
ers of capital, but to the equal
service of all. The underlying
purpose of the ? fair in the year
2000. moreover, will not be busi
ness advertising for tho purpose
of individual money-making, but
the desire, without sordid or
selfish aims of any sort, to furn
ish tho nations an opportunity to
loarn from one another, to rejoice
in and share one another's gains,
that humanity may advance with
even step.
There can bo no doubt that the
world's record for fast passenger
train speeds has been beaten on
the New York Central and Hud
son River Railroad in the won
derful run made May 9. 189:1, by
locomotive No. 999. On that day
that engine hauled the Empire
State Express from Now York to
Buffalo, a distance of -140 miles.
The schedule of the train is 50.7
miles an houi, including four
stops. The train was 38 minutes
late in leaving Rochester, and
ran the distance from Rochester
to Buffalo. 69 miles, in 68 minu
tes. In this part of the run one
distance of fire miles on a
level grade was run in SjJ minu
tes. being at the rate of 86 miles
an hour. This was from Looney
ville to Grimesville. and one mile
west of Grimesville was ruu in
85 seconds, being at the rate of
102.8 miles a? hour.
