We bave more than onoe expressed
onr faith in ths order of tbe "Pa
irons of Husbandry," and oar belief
that it will inaugurate a new era in
agrioultaral history and lift the
nursing mother of all tbe arte to the
exalted position smooir tbe indus
tries or tbe world which io her un
doubted right. , Onr expressed sym
patby witb tba order entitles ns, wa
think, to submit to ita moat earnest
consideration tba question of farm'
enclosure, a system mora hordea-
aoma to the agricultural interest than
all tbe taxatioo, state and federal,
inflicted upon it by an nnwiae and
too often a oorrapt legislation. With
out obtruding any arguments - or
reasoning of our own, we will sim
ply submit ths following statements
derived from authorities whiob bsve
always commanded tbe highest re
spect. Mr. Biddle, In an address be
fore tbe Philadelphia AgviooUaial
Society, stated that the oost of tbe
fenoes in Pennaylvaoiaalooe amount
ed to 1100,000,000 (one hundred mil
lions), and their annual expenae be
estimated at 110,000,000 (ten mil
lions). A distinguished writer on
national wealth aaya "Strange aa
it may seem,ths greataat investment
in tbis oountry, tbe most costly pro
duction of human industry, ia the
common fences which enclose and
divide the field. Ko man dreams
thai. r ma outlay
on these nnpretendina i.
of human art, our cities and onr
towns, witb all tboir wealth, are left
far bebind. , In many plaoee tbe
fenoes have cost more than tbe fences
and farms are worth. It ia tbis
enormous bnrden whiob keeps down
the agricultural Interests oi tbis
oountry, oausitis an untold exnendi-
tnre, besides the loss of the land the
fences oooupy." . ... ,.

Col. Malt Martin, of Manchester,
lately told a friend in this oity of a
vary queer old recluse of Coffee
county, who never, until recently,
saw a loco-fooo match. It ia said of
the old Tellow that be "never went
anywhere in his life,''' and never
spent any money exoapt to pay hie
taxes. One day be saw Coi. Martin
'strike a friction match to light bis
pipe, and bia fnoa lit np with ohildish
admiration, as ha Inquired wbat it
was. Tbe Colonel explained '
ot tbe matooes, and insisted on hie
buying a box to take home witb bim.
"No," was tbe reply, Hboy'lt oost
some mjney, and 1 can make oat
with my flint." Col. Martin then
made bim a present of a bos and
warned bim not to Ie'. tbem get wet.
The oooseqaenoe of this advice was
mat ine old man wranoed them un
caiefully in his large handkerchief1
and stowed tbem away in n deep and
unnssd pocket of bis ooat r. .u
