Let the Patrons thoughout tlio South do likewise, there is uatfiin more instructive and pleasant than a jrenuino country picnic. Tho har vest season ia near at hand, and it would boa convenient time for car ryiriu out this suggestion in this sec tion. Agitato this question in tne Grongo and let us hear from our brethren upon this subiect. Choosing a Namo. . After all tho preliminary steps had been taken and tho work of the ritual becamo sufficiently advanced, it was required that a fitting and sug gestive uauio should be decided on for tho new Order. About foity titles in all were received for cousid-! elation. Among thcto were, "Aeri cultural Lodges," "Cee Hives," "Knights of Husbandry,' "Knights of the Plow," "Temples ol' Industry," and "Tillers of tho Soil." But the na mo that has sinco made the Order so famous, and which is so expressivo of tho true nature of tho association "Patrons of Husbandry," was happily adopted, as the titlo of tho members, while another tern, equally expresstTe was decideded on to indicate the hall or place of meeting, and thus -he word 'Grange" was wedded to en during fame. It would be well for all to remem ber this fact, and not mutilate tho English language by calling the individuals Grangers, as is often done, not only in contempt of the Order, but ol ten, tor want of knowing better, by those who do not feel inimical to the Order. The individu al is a "Patron of Husbandry ; the place of meetinjr, a "Grange." Let tho Patrons of tho Woet think long before they plunge the Order into the wild maelstrom ol politics. We suggest that a medal bo (riven at each meeting of the State Grange to the Grange which show the small est indebtedocta per tapita of its k others. , I I t (',' Y . i , 1 1 . 1 ',! ,t " - ' ft i r fa .., DM M .( - : ii .' i; t 1 it r.

Wo will relate our exoerienco iu direct trade an experience that ought to tench every person tho ad vantage ho has in being a Patrou, and the wonderful good of which the Order ts capable. We wero reques ted by a club of Patrons to send an order to 3t. Louis for somo supplies, consisting of flour, lard, bntter, bran, oats and corn. The amount of sixty five dollars was sent. A few days ago tl.o goods with the bills wero reseived. The parties were oil per jectly satisfied with the articles, and at first sight of the prices indicated somo surprise. But tor exemplify, thoroughly, the principles of economy of our order, we, in company with a brother Patron, calculated the saving on this small bill and found it to be tweoty-threo dollars. This state merit can be proven by the individu als and by tho bills. This is, bnt one of tho many instance? of the economy our order secures to its members by its principles of direct trado and cash purchases. Mr. Editor ; By "request, Bro. .

As wo stood, silent and thoughtful, gazing uiion a picture that was most dear to us, that borrowed brighter tints perhaps from contrai-t with the shades that memory supplied, a hand was gently iuid upon our thoulder, aud a voice, we knew full well, mel lowed by an cmoliou that manfully escaped concealment, asked, "What do you think of it?" The question was its own answer the tono betrayed the riddle solved br the Questioner. What did wo think of it? We thought that if in tbe prairies, tho uegro-ridden regiou from which tho questioner cume, there was as much of poac, aud quiet, and happiness, and independ ence as we raw stam)cd indelibly upon the features of those around us, mere would be many happy firesides where all is cheerless now, and fewer preinaturo wrinkles ami Hues ol anxious thought and hope'ess care written upon the brows of as noble a class of men as ever were condemned by a heartless government, backed by banded iguoraoce and insolence, to the rule of a raoe hardly yet emerged from barbarism. What did we think of it? We thought, 01 representative of as gallant a race a ever struck barb into the charger's flint, or palled a trigger in your flag's defence upon tbe plaint of Chaloictte, of .Vexico, or when confronted by domestic loeinon, that Ueavca Beuds no ill without au antidote ; that our Maker 1 f'-f ( .ff I ! 4 I. f - f ... f , 4 t b i nr,.. ;.-i .'.

Orange Rulings. From Pacific Boral Press. Worthy MasUr Hamilton .has lor wardcd,to us the following recent rulings in addition to those already published. It should bo borne iu mind bv all members ot the Order, that only those lulings which have been made by the Master of the Stato Grange of California should bo recognized as binding upon the Order in this State. Upon this point Worthy Mastsr Hamilton Las in structed as, follows ! "Tho State Gra'ge of California has elected a Master whoso rulings . m i I .1 on points ot urange taw in mis State are only official ones that can be recognizee as biuding on us. and must remain as law until overruled by tho Worthy Master ol National Grange, or by tho National Grange itself. Tho rulings of Masters of other States, while' they aro useful as precedents from which to form opinions or on whL-h to base decis ions, have no official force whatever here, and can never bo used to over rido our own authority. To the rulings of our Worthy Master and members in all tne States must ren der a checiful obedience, until an ap peal may be sustained by tho Nation- Grange. , , BCLIXGS.

In the subordi nate Granges, motion to adjourn is not in order, but ths Master should close, as soon as the time haa arrived, or tho business finished.
