We are anxiou to ret and pursue its inter- etinsr columns. We appreciate the Gazette very much as a home ra- ter, but think we farmers orer here would be a great-deal more inter e-ted in reading your pajr, if less of iU coiumns were filled nn with news concerning the big merchants aud more fact concerning the little industrious farmer. 1 oor farmer! he is almost unnoticed, he is kicked, pushed and knocked around until lio is aluiv-t ready to 8av let us give up, wo om Y0rkeu down. We saw in your Iaft a correspondent was fcak p;tirmgty o! the poor savs the farmer had not to make mony liirusoil, but had so skinned otf the native fertality ot the field.- that Eat Tenncfsee pre sented to men not accustomed to uc b mcthcKis an aspec t of sterility. He a!.- gives the larmer fits about red k nolle, rotten fences, grown up ft-iice rows, unpamted hou.es, not having barnes. etc. Well we know all tlitto thingn luok bad, but Mr. Kdilor I think I can tell you the oriiriu ot all thec things. In the firt place the bufinea men regard the larmer as such a low-down character that it keeps the farmer fj di-cour Hired that he don't do as well as he cvuld do. In the second ' -!uce the merchants are skinning the larmer Irom Lead to loot, they claim to Its the farmer's best friend and the fact is they aro the worst tiuiaiei that the farmer have to cr-nteiid with. They are as sly as the 'running spider, they will hang out their shingle on which will be written ''cheap goods for tale, the highest market jrico for produce." Then they will sing their flattering songs to the farmer, "you are witty and you aro wise"' come in and let . mo .&cll you something cheaper than the cheapest. Poor silly farmer at laf t in he steps and the merchant holds him fat. The fact is we farmers depend too much ujon the stores. We get into the habit oi going to the ttore for so much that wo think we ought to run there for everything we think wo need, and so rob oursK-'Kes of a good living. Brother farmer, let me tell you how we can beat the merchants: let us live on what we make awhile; stay away from the stores and let the merchants have to fit down every morning, forabout twelve months, to a t up of coffee and a plug oi tobac co with a piece of ."Simpson's five 'centa calico to taper off on. And the lawyer sit down, each morning, 10 a set of jurymen aud plead to them until the Lonot farmer cats his literal breakfast. And then, undo farmer, we can hear them ex c.aim in thunder tones: "Come back, good farmer, come back!" yuu are our best friend and we can not do without you. Without you our business would falter and fad and then we cannot do without those ;od biscuits. "Yes," they will say so the hard-working farmer, "Come back, and we will pay you a liberal price for your produce." The mer ! nmts don't give the farmer a fair Vhance; they price their goods as :.igl as they can hold their breath, ;ud then put the low-down price upon the farmer's produce. You will hear the merchant pleading to the farmer, that that is the best he cj.u see out; but he never thinks for the tiit time about the farmer see it g out the fact is ho don t care whether tho farmer makes any n.ouey or not, jut so he makes j.Uut Ho per cent, on his goods lu.d 1 10 per cent, on the farmers M educe. Ho never says to the la- U icr, "Good farmer, canyou afford to take what I have offered you for vi. ur produce?'' Surely all the merchants haven't learned the Gold en liule!

We farmers like you men but v.ouid like you much better if you v.utenotso hard down against us. bir, one and all, we do not intend this to offend any one; we only aut you to consider, for a moment, and give us a chance; but, if the shoe tits any one, why wear it, and oo the best you can.'

"iney are men oi I es, but mostly between twenty five and thirtv-five. But I shonld I say that fully ten per cent, of thm are men who are well on with or al I ready beyond the middle age. These - 1 are the hardest to find places ior. I They are too much set in their own I notions of business to adapt them- selves readily to others' notions, and then those who want .bookkeepers prefer younger men who can grow with the business. These elderly applicants have, as a general thing, seen better times. Many-of them have been in business for them My estimate of the number or would be bookkeerra.is & careful one, and is based upon a long expe rience in this line oi btumess. Ihere aro twenty-three thousand book keepers employed in the city, and mora than a quarter as many mere uuemnloved. You would be aston ished to learn the number of able- bodied men who could work at a hundred different things if they had a mind to, but who will persist in either keeping books or keeping idle. Young men, with a liietiine ahead of them and tho whole range of ordinary vocations to choose from, will hang around town lor months, and run into debt, while waiting a chanco to keep books. Tho time has gone by when 'good penman ship will necessarily secure a man a living. Thero are too many good penmen now, and 1 know for a fact that there are some business houses where expert penmanship is dis counted, and where one who is able to write too well is suspected of in capacity in other respects. Of course 1 don t pretend to indorse this, but it is one of the factors which prevent clever penmen from at ouco securing employ ment.- And what do you suppose a good book keeper gets a week, anyhow "Twenty or twenty five dollars," said the reporter, at a guess. 'Well, there are very few book keepers in New Y'ork who earn twenty-five dollars a week very few. Thero are not many who make twenty dollars. The average pay of an ordinary bookkeeper is from fifteen to eighteen dollars a week. I will undertako to furnish hundreds of good bookkeepers at from twelve to fifteen dollars a week." , "Why, that is only two dollars a day." " "Precisely, and thero n r a nnl many ot the o,UUU unemployed 1 bookkeepers who would not tako it. a . v .-. v t let it was only tnree months ago that I read in the public prints that it was not iossiblo to secure compe tent 1 policemen en the Brooklyn bridge at two dollars a day." "What is the condition of things in other lines of employment?" "1 can't speak for the number of ordinary laborers, for we 6eldom have applications for them. The other business men who want help send to us, and we have continually on our books a Pu ruber ofap'Kcints who say that they can do this thing or the other thing, and if we cannot till the bill from those we have on hand we adrertise. Our fee comes from tho man employed. Tho fact is a man must pay a fee before go ing on our books. He then has a cltance for a certain length of time for getting employment through us. He may or he may not getit. It does not pay him to say he can Jo a certain kind of work unless he real ly can do it. If ho savs he is a bar keeper and pays us a lee for getting him such a position, and is after ward discharged for incompetency, you can see that he gains' nothing by the operation except experience), aud he will paobably come to us and say thrt he is willing to go as assistart bar-keeper and learn .the business. Wo have a great many applicants and a great many places to fill in the bar-keeping lino. The applicants aro mostly Germans, and and the employers generally prefer Germans.

She dearly lorea "an airly walk," and eho always comes when the dew is on the grass, bhe bears the morn ing concert of the birds', and the cheery interchange of greetings among the boastful chanticleers. She stops on her way at my rose- bed and ruthlessly plucks my rarest bud, that I have watched .ior days, I " on that unlucky morning. - 1 rerbaps 1 have destined that par I ticular rose for Jack a buttonhole on I h13 birthday (Jack is my husband, - nd bo dearly loves a rose): but my I washerwoman lores roses, too, and 1 80 Bb comes in smiling and com I P"ceni witn uie pet .oi my garuen I tac jauntily behind her ear.

Still, she has a sort of rugged beauty all her own, and she looks health and wholesome, And oh! she has the gift of blar occasion. "Oh! have you?" " Y'is, indade, that I have," with an emphatic nod of her head. "Ye see, I was goin' along tho road and I met Mrs. Jones, a woman I used to wash lor, and says she to me, says she : "'Who are ye washing for the day, Mary 7 says she.

Now, I had never given her any thing like a whole pan of milk, but from that day I increased the quan tity as well as the number of cook ies and things for the "childer." So susceptible is the American woman to flattery. Another time she said: "There's them that would be glad to git yer day out o' me, mum." "What's that, 3Iary?" "Oh, Miss Bemis comes to me the other day, and she says to me: , " 'Mary, I wants me washin' done tho fust o' tho week,' says she. 'Can't ye come ! Chue6day ?'

It seemed that her little family had been wonderfully prospered. What with Mike's daily wae-es . and . her own, and . the . money" the "b'ys" earned selling papers, they had be come quite rich people." They own ed their bit. of a house, and had a snug little sum laid by. And now the desire to rise crept into Mary's ambitious heart. "Why shouldn't they live, in a fne house some day and be as good as the best? . So she persuaded her steady old husband to set up a beer shop a favorite way of making money with that class of people and only three months afterward she came to me in great distress and poured out her soul in sorrow and repentance. "It's all along o' that cruel beer shop' she groaned; "It's ruined us intirely I Bo the howly father !" eho cried, throwing up her arms in a passion of. misery, "I wish this tongue had been, pulled out o' me mouth I wish black death had come to me before iver I coaxed my Mike to go into it I An he always the best of husbands!

I'm a match for Mike, dhrunk or sober! barrin' a few bruises,", with a sniff of disdain and putting down her sleeve. A little while after cam the dread climax of her woe. !
