Illack walnut is becoming rare anil desirable
wood. Time was when it was wasted wanton

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

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

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.

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 :
