3 HOUSEHOLD AND FARM. Mr. James Vick, tho U.icliwiter nurseryman, is quoted m savins; that tho "Wli'te Worm." or any otUcr wtirm, in pots umy ho destroyed by stick iiii three or lour common matclicH down into the soil, nlo ouo or two up into the dram o.i.nini?. Tlio iilnwplioroiw on the match i 4 certain death to iiniiutl lite, and a powerful fertilizer lor plants. No Chinese f irmer ever sows a seed of grain before it n Ijix-u soaked iu liquid manure di luted with water and has begun to germinate; and experience lias taught him tlm this oper ation not onlv lends to promote the giowth and devolopmcnt of the plant but also to j.ro. tect tho seed from tho insects hidden in the ground. Tho waternielon, onco dreaded ns tin ajfent of cholera mid its contingent ills, is now an article of diet welcome in cery household. The watermelon is now said to bo a euro for summer complaint. Even when it becomes chronic, watermelon taken two or threo times a day has been found to cure after all tho usual remedies hav? failed. At the close of Dr. Tan tier's fast his first meal was of watermelon. This item is a littlo lato iu tho season, but we publish it in time for you to paste it in your summer hat, before laying it aside. A writer In the Vcutm Journal advises every farmer aud farmer's boy to plant black wal nuts on the firm. This is the month in which to plant them plant them with the shuck on, just as they fall from the trws, put ting them in the ground six to ten inches. Illack walnut is becoming rare anil desirable wood. Time was when it was wasted wanton ly by beiu'i pounded into fence rails by prodi gal farmers. J!ut now every log H hunted up eagerly by thii cabinet makers. Walnut trees grow rapidly, are never infested with insects, aud are very hardy. They should never be transplanted, l'lant them in the tir.-t place where you want them to remain. There is hardlv a fanner in Leo county but has some out ot the way corner on tho farm that can be t:t".l:zcil by the growth of black walnut timber. Plant your walnuts now, and in a few years you will' have a walnut grove that you will be proud of. JUxoit Sun. A sheep raiser of Dayton, Wis., carried a gun in ilrivmi? his sheet home, as wolves were known to be prowling about, lie soon saw two old wolves and live three-quarter grown whelps wrangling over a deatl sheep, lie fired into them with a charge of No. 4 shot, when war began. Immediately the whole sev cn came bounding toward htm, and before he had time to climb' a tree they were full upon him. lie reversed the gun aud used it for a club. Tho fight lusted an hour, and so savage and ferocious were tho wolves that, as one after another received a death-stroke from the old musket, they pounced upon their fallen com rade and proceeded to devour him. At this juncture the farmer would rush iu with his gun and kill another, hauling one or both of the dead bodies back to the tree where the fight took place. He did this, he afterward said, to save their carcasses, as there is a boun ty of .$11 on each wolf killed in Waupaca county. After the hour's skirmish tho seven wolves lay dead nt the farmer's feet. The South Elgin Sorghum Sugar Company has proved a failure, and On. Malcolm Mc Dole, of Chicago, tho chiet owner, has made an assignment to Mr. Frank Sheppard, of South Elgin. The Elgin Sen says: "The mills were built and fitted up a little over a year ago. Everything wns on a largo scale, and the best of machinery was put in. 1'rac tical sugar makers were hired; farmers were induced to plant early amber and other canes, and it was given out that a practical test would be made of tho possibilities ol sorghum sugar making. Last year the experiment was a fail ure. The cane did not ripen as it should, and frost came too soon. Only a poor article of syrup was made. This year there was no at tempt to manufacture sugar. An excellent ar ticle of syrup, however, was turned out, some being now on sale in groceries. The farmers who have received no cash for this year's cane, some of them, esteem themselves lucky to have succeeded in getting some of this syrup. Ifhere are multitudes ot other creditors who will have hard work to get this much satisfac tion." A u rora Jieacon. Some Experiments with Wheat, In the fall of 173 I put in two acres ot wheat and soweil one bushel of seed on one acre and one-half bushel on the other. It was sown September 8, and when it first came up there whs a marked dill'erencc between the two strips. Hut the fail was favorable for growth, and before winter it was difficult to tell which was the thin seeded part. A neighbor cut it for me. and I told him thai one side was seed ed with halt a bushel and the other with a bushel, ami asked him to pay particular atten tion and see it he could tell which was the heaviest, but he could detect no difference. We had 10;i shocks, fifty-one on oae acre and lifty two on the other, and the yield was thirty five bushels per acre. The next year I added four acres to the piece and seeded it with three .picks of seed to the acre. The yield was 10 bushels, or thirty bushels per acre. I have grown on picked acres over forty bushels of wheat Irom three pecks ot seeu. In the tall of ls7S I manured a strip of thin land w ith bone meal at the rate of about :w0 pounds per acre, and left a space one rod wide through the center to test the difference. As soon as the wheat started to grow in the spring that on which tho bone was used outgrew the other, so that it could be seen from a distance in passing the field, and at harvest the nnma nured strip wns not worth cutting, while the part "boned" made fifteen bushels of excellent wheat to the acre. In the fall of 1879 I sowed four acres of wheat on corn land. It was a cold clay, aud I had rarely grown a paying crop on it, the corn that year did not make twenty bustiels to the acre. I divided it into lour equal strips and manured the first with one barrel of sifted hen manure ; the second with twelve loads of stable manure; the third with 200 pounds ol ' round bono and the fourth with 200 pounds of super phosphate. I left btrips ten feet wide without any manure between the different plots. From a companion of the unmanured strips I esti mate that I doubled the crop by the fertilizers. The four acres yieldea 120 bushels, and al though I did not thrash the strips separately, I found that the barrel of hen manure made as heavy a crop as the twelve loads ot stable manure. 1'ossibly it supplied just what was needed in the soil or gave the wheat just the quick start needed to enable it to find material already there. If a barrel of hen manure, as the experiment indicates, will add ten or fifteen bushels of wheat to the acre, it is time farmers were finding it out. I am much in favor of top-dressing wheat land, and Irom experiments extending over several years 1 find one load of manure made fine and spread on the surface is worth to the wheat crop two plowed under. If used in this way every hair cord of manure will make an extra bushel of wheat and under favorable circumstances It will often double this. I be lieve that manure from a shed where it has been allowed to accumulate and retain all the liquid, is worth two or three times as much for wheat as that from the barn yard, and I am so situated this year that I can test the matter, as I have several loads of manure in a stable where I hare kept a mare and colt all sum mer.

Neuro Kuvixlit-r Lynched. CiiAiu.iisTON, S. C, Oct. 13. Jack Williams, a negro, convicted at Orangeburg, S. C, on Saturday, for an outrage upon a white girl, aged 11 years, was taken from jail about 2 o'clock this morning and hanged. The jury, through a misunderstanding, rendered aver diet with a recommendation to mercy. Under the statue, such recommendation reduces the punishment from death to life imprisonment, and the prisoner was sentenced on Wednesday accordingly. The public, incensed against tlie jury, determined that the prisoner should never reach tho penitentiary. The crime was a revolting one, and the prisoner confessed his guilt. The following was found fastened across the breast ot the body of Williams, print ed in large letters on a piece of white home spun : "Our wives, mothers, sisters, and daugh ters shall be protected, the decision ol the Orangeburg jury to the contrary notwith standing." Kuin'8 Victim. The Sunday Time contains the following specials: Cakmnviu.k, 111., Oct. 13. This city was the scene of another terrible murder this after noon, John Naytz, jr., being shot and instant ly killed by Lewis Biggs. The evidence be fore the coroner's jury was in .substance that liiggs ami Nant. went into tlie saloon of John Stoddler and there quarreled over who should treat, liiggs applied a coarse epithet to Xantz, who knocked him down, when Stoddler, the bartender, interfered and separated them. The next morning Biggs drew his pistol anil killed Nantz. liiggs at once gave himself up, and is now confined in jail to await trial, (J real excitement prevails over tho tragedy. Biggs is a married man, and his father was with him at the time of the shooting and will bo a wit ness against him. Pktiioit, Mich., Oct. 13. A family quarrel had a fatal ending to-night. James Valier was shot by his stepson, Marquis Lafayette Defoe, in a quarrel. V alter came home drunk, and began abusing his family, and threatened the life of his wife and Defoe, lint words ensued, and Defoe was caught by the throat bv Valier. Tho former drew a revolver and shot Valier in the bowels, from tho effects of which he died at 11 o'clock. Defoe is under arrest, and claims to have done it in self defense. Valier was 113 years of age. The same revolver acci dentally shot Mrs. Valier's husband some years since. Paw Paw, Mich.. Oct. K!. Yesterday after noon, Charles 1 lowland, a farmer who resides about live miles west of here, came home iu toxicated, and, after abusing and poundinirhis wile, attacked his son, Henry llowland, with a knife, cutting him in several places, when the son drew his pistol and shot. The ball en tered the body a little above tho heart and the man soon died. The son, after all was over, came to town and gave himself up to the au thorities. The neighbors say he has often been compelled to defend his mother from a vicious husband's abuse, and that Henry has heretofore sustained a good character. The Knrle Kxcciitinn, One of the most notable executions of the year was that of Edward Earlc, on Friday ot last week at Sageville, Hamilton county, .V Y. His crime was the murder of his wife- on the 17th of March last. Ho was -II years of age, a man of supeiior education, had parsed under various aliases, and had traveled apparently all over the world. No one ever knew anything about his family, or whether lie was American or Spaniard. He was in the Union army sev eral years during the rebellion and had Let n taken prisoner. On his release ho settled down in the Adirondack region in New York, where be married Anna llurgess in 153, and pursued the calling of a blacksmith. His wife, a tew years afterwards became criminally in timate with a man named George I'rown, and a quarrel with her was the basis of a charge of assault with intent to kill, and on the trial, at which Earle maintained that she perjured her self to convert him so that she could live with Brown, he was convicted and sent to prison for three years. After his release from prison he went to his home, arriving there cold, wet and hungry, and concealed himself in the barn. The scene at the place of concealment on the fatal day was very graphic. When the wife discovered him and their eyes met, she fell on the floor and begged piteously for her life. "For God's sake, for the sake of your little dead children, have mercy on me," she pleaded. He said : (in his confession afterwards), "I could not think, I could not reason ; I was bereft oi ev ery sense except pun. All my miseries were before mc; tho disgrace, the dishonor, the long, lonesome days, months, years in a prison cell, the desolate home, the terrible oath, were there, aud there knelt THE WOMAN who had caused all. I threw the knlte on the floor at her fee t and went to tho door; stood besido her, undecided, stupid. Where could I go? I had no object in life. The hope of ven- geance that had kept mo alive lor years naci hit it wrested from me by the earnest plciulincs of the woman. She had promised that she would not mention my being in tho barn, but 1 knew sho would, i knew that as sure as I stood beside that door she would send me to prison again. But sho had disarmed me. I could not hurt her. She thought 1 had gone. She irot up and rushed for the small door, call ing, 'George, George!' That was the name that was connected with all my sufferings. George was the one who had planned the thing sho had executed. It was George who was the partner iu all her guilt. It was George who had induced her to deal mo blow after blow, until reason staggered and life baa be come unbearable. It was tins same George she was now calling to repeat the dose. She called in vain. George could not help her. The good God hiniselt could not save hertheu. All that I had guttered at their hands present ed itself before mv eves with the vividness of a picture. Hit present treachery maddened me beyond all control. I was no longer human. 4 WAS A DEMON, knowing nothing, fearing nothing, wild. I rushed through the barn; she slipped iii the door and tell. 1 snatched the knife from her hand, and, did I strike? No! It was ye-ars of sntl'erinir, woe, shame, dishonor, the desolate home, justice, and the hated name of George that held the knife and impelled the blow, as she shrieked 'murder!' Murder is a tetrible word. I could never hear the word spoken without associating it with something awful. There is something horrid about the shape of the word, as we see it in print, but to hear it uttered wildly by one whom you had once loved, by my victim, knowing it was the last word she ever would utter, oh God! it was hor rible, indeed. 1 stared iu horror for a mo ment, then like a wild boast fled across the field, the fearful cry of 'Munler!' ringing in my ears; the slow-timed step, tho pleading, pitiful look pursuing and keeping pace with me. I fled without a purpose, save to get rid of the horrible cry of murder. It was repeated with a learlul distinctness irom every direc tion. I raise.l my bands to my ears to shut out the awful sounds, and- became conscious that my hands grasped something. 'Horror on horror!' it was a KNM'i: COVKHKI) WITH I'.I.OOP. I hutted it from me, and as it toll it shrieked 'Murder!' My limbs were palsied; I could not flee fast enough ; the snow once so white now looked red. All things seemed changed ; nothing seemed real except the cry, the look, the step. As I turned the corner at Bass' and lied along tho road past tho grave-yard, two little voices that had been hushed in death for years cried 'Munler, murder!' I looked back and the slow, timid step, the pleading, pitiful look met mine1, and I sank in the snow." He gave himself up soon alter the crime and was duly indicted and arraigned for trial. His attorney undertook to detend hi m on inc plea of insanity, but be arose iu court and de nounced his counsel for insulting him by of fering such a pica. On his conviction he thanked tho jury and said their verdict was just, and when sentenced to death he thanked tlie Court, saying death to him meant release from further trouble. He was exceedingly cheerful afterwards to the day of his execution, writing several facetious letters inviting 1ns friends to his "neck-tie party." At tho execution at It o'clock a. m. Earle said he was ready. The death warrant was read to him, and lie responded with a smile: "That's all right and just." He went to the callows with free arms and legs and spoke Pleasantly to tho officers and iurors in the yard. He said that the presence of his friend cheered him and he was supported by an un seen power. He did not want to be under stood as dying game or making false proles sion. but hoped he was prepared to die the death assigned him by a just sentence nnd a fair court. Alter a line! prayer he said : "1 here is one thing more 1 have to say. If any of you boys ever meet my little Kirl, June, please give her a kind word. It won't cost you any thing. Now, sherilt, good by; I am ready"" His neck was broken by the fall and he died in a few minutes without a struggle.

A Story of IdIv1 Wflmtfr, There are several interesting anecdotes re lated of Daniel Webster, who was the foremost lawyer, statesman, diplomatist, and orator la America. . Id tho early years ot his profession al life, a blacksmith called upon him for ael vieo concerning tho title to a small estate be queathed to him, as tho terms of the will were peculiar, ami the kind ot estate transmitted doubtful, an attempt had been made to annul tho will. After Mr. Webster had examined tlie case he was unable to give a definite opm ion on it for want of lenal authorities. He therefore, nt considerable expense, purchased a number of extra law books from Boston, and spent his leisure hours of several weeks iu re ferring tottiem. llo suecessiuiiy argueei un case ou its trial, when it was decided in his favor. On account of the poverty of the black smith, Mr. Webster only charged him if 13, in tending not only to suffer the loss of money paid out, but the lime occupied in securing tho verdict After a long period had elapsed the case was forgotten; but not the knowl edge by which it was won. On one of his journeys to Washington, Mr. Webster spent a few days in New York city, when the cele brated Aaron Burr sought his advice ou a very important case then pending in the state court. Having heard the facts on which it was found ed, Mr. Weh.-ter perceived at once that it cor responded exactly with tho blacksmith's will case. On being asked if ho could me.it ion the law applicable to such he immediately re- tilled that he could, and then began to quote decisions hearing upon the case Irom the time of Charles II. As lie went on citing his array of principles and authorities with great pre cision, mt. isurr rose in nsioiiisiiiueiu, imu asked with some warmth, ".Mr. Webster, have you been consulted before in this case?" ".Most certainly not," ne repneu. -i never heard of your case until this evening." "Very well," said Mr. Burr, "proceed." Mr. Web ster concluded the quotation of his authori ties, and received from Mr. Burr the highest praise for his profound legal knowledge, and a fee sufficiently largo to remunerate him tot al Hie time and trouble he devoted and the expense ineurrcii in me uiacKsruun s win ease. The following resolutions were passed at a meetinir of the Uticii Land League held nt their hall on the !th inst., 1881 : WiiKisiCAs, It has pleased the Almighty in His inscrutable wisdom to take from our midst our beloved and honored brother member, Francis A.
