C. BRUNNER. SM.MAL ! ! Preparation of Wheat Ground. Tbe first reqniaite for a wbent crop, is a thorough preparation of the ground. "Clodhopper" laid it down as absolutely necessary to Buoceed in wheat raiselng, to have "o solid soed bed," and no proposition is more true. It matters not that some seasons wo raiso good crops with a loose porons seed bed. The majority of our an turn us and winters are adverse to the wheat crop, when it is only nnder the most favorable circumstances that we socoeod in raising a fair crop. One experiment proves nothing, but a oontinned succession of them will demon strate the truth or falsity of any hppothesis that is capable of nctnal demonstration. No observant farmer, who is in the habit of fallowing for wheat, but can call to mind Instances, where ho commences to break early, and his ground is beaten down by tho rains, and becomes solid, while the late broken lies up loose and dry, pulverize it ever so well, and bow both tho same day, the early breaking will come np strong and vigorous, grow off and stand the drpnth of antumn, and the frost of winter, compara tively well, while the latter will oome tip sickly and yellow, making a poor growth In the fall, and if a hard winter freeze out, and at harvest be a failure. Then let tis havo a solid soed bed. If we break early and don't have rains to pack it down, let ca pack it with the roller. If we sood on oorn ground, never break it, or even plow it with the donblo shovol, all we need is two or three inches of well pul verized soil on top, below that, a cornileld never gets too hard the season it is tended to oorn, to produce a good wheat crop, By the way, if our land Is fcrtilo, we can not got a roach better chauce for a crop of wheat, than an old sod tended to oorn in tho summer, and then cut the corn oat of the way, and seeded in the fall, lending the corn puts the land in fine condition to seed, (that is, if tended.) Having the seed bod rightly prepared, the next considera tion is additional security for a crop. The next best soourity is tho mannre pile and phosphate; tho former, sadly neglected. Before sowing tho wheat, scrnpe every shovel full of manure out of the barnyard, the pig pens, the hen house, the pig beds oat in the woods, the ash hopper, and any other corner of the furni where you can find half a wagon load. Scatter over the wheat ground after it is broken, and then mix it iu the top soil with the harrow bo fore drilling iu the wheat. All the laud we oau't treat as above, shall we phosphate? I'M it the qutation next for demonstration. In conversation with some of the prominent farmers of Clinton county, they expressed a determination to use phosphate on their best laud. If the phosphate will increase the yiuld on good land Bufltciout to pay for itself, insure against partial fuilurea, and produce a good set of grass, it in certaiuly tbe part of wis dom to nse it. The top dressing of manure we know hits not failed with us but twioe iu thirty years, once by the wheat freezing to douth Iu the drill rows, and ouco by the Hessian fly. Lot eut.'h farmer resolve him self into a committee of one, to demon strate the phosphate problem, and report. Always seed with a drill. The best lime to Sow no man cull tell, uulesulikelxieiiiel s seer, the wetther would cai.t lis shadows before him. Koi.ua irood farmers try to sow from ths 'it'.h to the host of September.

TRAMP PRINTER Gives Us His Impressions of the Chinese On the Pacific Coast and Elsewhere. THROUGH THE DENVER DENSEVANSTON CHINATOWN-THE CHINESE IN PORTLAND. OREGON. The Chinese Must Go—or Improve. RACINE, WIS, August 27th, 1885. I am a mugwump. Not politically, but on the Chinese ques tion. I might have given you my impressions of tho Mongolians in America at a much earlier ditto, but I have boon waiting until a prolonged absouoe from that portion of the country which thoy havo captured might soften any unjust prejudices I may have entertained iu regard to the sous of gnus. A few short years ago I was in favor of unrestricted Chinese emigration. That was when I was gulping down knowledge at the Ilillsboro anion schools, and when the only Chinaman I ever saw was eu occa sional missionary lecturing for the benefit of some church, or a laundryman the lat ter to bo soen only on a perrennial visit to Cincinnati. Iu our school debating clubs I took the negative on the resolution that Chinese emigration Bhould be prohibited. Now I am a Prohibitionist on this ques tion. But at that time I grow ladiguaut at the wrongs inflioted upon tho "poor Chinese," and on a certain Friday after noon, before tho entiro A Grammar depart ment and three visitors I also grew elo quent, and delivered such a touching argu ment, recounting their griovouces and their many virtuos that good Mr. Calo Bonnctt (our teacher), pronounood mo a youth of promise who would undoubtedly inevitably rival TJ1. Sloane. (But alas, there's many a slip twixt the desk anil the forum ! and I was always too honest, anyway.) If yon want to get enlightened on the Chinese question, take ITorace Greeley's advice, young man, and go WeBt. Don't jadgo by anything yon see east of the Rockies, aud don't think that because 8am Kee's opposition has not financially smashed the Ilillsboro washwoman that forty or fifty of his counterparts couldn't do it. The first place I ever saw Chinese in any number was at Denver. I do not know how many there are, but they occupy a frontage of about two squares together, which with the stray lanndrlos in other portion of the city make a pretty fair show ing of Chinese, of both sexes. As I was younger then than I am now I didn't know much about them, and so I bribed a long haired individual who was introduced to me as "California Bill," and who was familiar with their ways and wickedness to show me around. A detective whose ac quaintance I had made introduced as, and said: "Bill can show yon aronnd. lie's an Indian scout and his back is so scarred np, yon can't count the marks. I would accompany you, bnt that I won't have time cow. Just yon follow Bill, if you want to study Chinese chanolor." I followed Bill. Bill talked familiarly as we walked to ward Chinatown. Interrogating him as to Lis employment he said be was "doing nothing at present, as business was dull; just waiting for the Indians to break out." Bill took me around, aud what I saw was sufficient to do aught but strengthen my yonthful ideas of those people. Graphically described my little trip that night would do for a five cent novel, but it would hardly be appropriate for a family newspaper. As the l'aoiflo coast grew nearer and nearer, the Chinese grew more and more disgusting. Beyond the Kocky Mountain the greater part of all kinds of labor is done by them. They cook at nearly all hotels; they do gardening; railroad work and everything including of course mo nopolizlng the laundry business. So few ore the hotels with white cooks that it Is not infrequently you may read on a hotel oard or advertisement such wording as this "IIotkl K Swil'KS. Only first-class hotel in the oity. Free buss. Sample rooms on first floor. Fiue bar-room iu connection. Crf'Ky. Hour mash a specalty 1 ! ONLY WHITE EMPLOYED !!!" s They do this work for wages that an Amorican could not live on to say nothing of keeping a family. All the section laborers on tbe Northern Pacific railroad are Chinese, as far east, perhaps, as Eastern Montana. They work for 70 to $1,10 or fl.15 per day and board themselves. Tboy are littlo bettor than slaves, as shrewd Chinese contractors secure them and vir tually still them to railroad companies at so much for a certain period of time. While iu Portland, Oregon, a case of this kind came under my own observation. A weulthy Chiuumau mode a ooutruct with parties iu British Columbia to furuibh COO L. borers tor a projected ruilroad at $1.10 per day each. He had no difficulty in rais ing the required number in a short time at 70, 80, 90 cents, and f 1 per day. There aro a number of immentely wealthy China men on tho coast, who made their money iu this manner. (But that Is better than putting it down in your stocking and loaning It out only at hoavy interest, as I havo knowu . But I forgot myself; this is for a Ilillsboro paper.) At Evanston, 'Wyoming Territory, ovor half tho town is Chinese. I visited a joss hoiiBO (or church) which to adequately de scribo, would requiro more space and tlmo than Is at my disposal. It was elaborately fixed np, contained a carved piece of fur nituro that soemod a sort of across between a cabinet and an altar, or the "Wonderful Cumberland clock," aud which nu attend ant informed ub cost $;?,000 iu China. Small cups of tea wore placed on it, and tho iuovitablo punk iu spiral shape hung from tho ceiling and burned in Us slow but suro way. Tho "priest" or whatever his ofneo may havo been (a deacon, perhaps) took me behind the cabinet into the sanc tum sanctorum, where thero was more tea (presumably for tho accommodation of thirsty spirits or gods), more bnrning punk, some little carvod wooden images, soiiit! tom-toms (improvised from pieces of sheep skin and old kegB), aud a collection of other trumpery, which the heathen (in his blindnoss) clothes with roligious sancity and supernatural powers (at least I guess he does.) Yon can't Christianize ouo out of a thou sand. Tboy will attond mission schools in order to learn Euglish, but when they want to ask a favor they knool beforo their own gods, aud wheu thoy want to exerciso evil spirits they burn an imago of their own dovil. (I do not know whether they recog nize the same dovil we do or whother they have a devil poouliarly their own.) Noither have they any appreciation of tho worth of American citizenship. Among nil the Chinese I evor saw I have found but three or four who had the oourage to go against Chiuose popular superstition far enough to part with thoir queues. I saw one Ameri canized Celestial in Waco, Texas, two yerrs ago, who's wife was of Hibernian extraot ion. He however, wAitJiormtghly &n Amor ioan, as he carriod the baby aud (I have since read) has secured a divorce. In Portland there are 5,000 Chiuose. For six or seven squares you can walk on ono street and with tho aid of very little imagi natiou be, to all appcaraucos, in tho Celes tial empire Itself. There are Chinese bazaars, meat shops, stores and Bhops of all kinds, and what money they spend is spent with their countrymen merchnnts and trndosmon, aud they in turn procure noarly all their goods from China. They bay of the whites only what they can't get of each other and yot must have. I would I might say somothing compli mentary to tho Chinese woiuon, but I can not. Virtue, they have uouo, and their vices are too numerous to mention. They aro bought In China and imported to this country for servants and worse; and snch as are found in tho West are not an orna ment even to the worst of Chineso society, Thero is no use to try to evade tho fact that this country has a Chinese problem on its hands. The immigration laws are only partially successful, as thoy can be smug gled in all along tho coast. No one who will spend a month on tho Pacifio coast evor comes back with a favorable impres sion of the Chinese, and if it is not moie rigidly watched the whites of the West coast will be compelled to do something terrible. In British Columbia the populace held mass meetings to express their senti ments, and in a Victoria daily paper I road resolutions setting forth that "tho repeated refusals of the Government to take decisive steps in the matter was a severe strain upon the loyalty of all British subjects" in that province. Thero is no negro problem before this nation. The negro of to-day is as really an American as any one can be. His welfare our welfare, and his impulses, ideas and religions are ours. lie shares our misfor tunes without a murmur, and our pride and patriotism as becomes him well. The In dian can also be made a good and useful citizen, as a trip through the eastern por tions of the Indian Territory will show anyone. But the Chinaman is a heathen through and through and it will be ages (if over) before he will become anything else. He Btarves our American laborers and then takes all his money to China. These, sinco time has cooled my prcju. dices, are my and all Western people's ideas of the Mongolian Iu America. P. S. As this might hurt Bam Kee's feelings I will ask as a special favor that you don't Bell him a paper this week. It won't do to hurt any Ilillsboro niau's feel ings. N. B. Tho Chinese must go or mend their ways. Tuamp Pbinteb. "Right Peart."

He Meets Brutus at Phillippi. For tho News. Lest somebody might get the notion that "it takos five or ton years to sot a perma nent pasture," it may be propor to state what it really seems that every farmer knows. When laud is Booded for "pornia nent pasture" tho process is just the same as is gone through when it is seeded to stand three or five yoars. The whole matter is this; tho mau that plows np his pastures every three or five years can uover know what a really good pasture is; for in this country it will not, under any circum stances, come to its best for sevoral years; en or more, know. (That personal pro noun, first person singular, ought not to be there, but lot it stand, for I do know that pastures get hotter for more tlmn ten year. In 18(15 I believe, I sold forty acres of land to Mr. Williams, of Now Vienna. Said laud was then in grass, but rathor poor; that laud in Union township, aud level. That laud was in pasturo last March, and everybody that knows "a hawk from a hand-saw" kuows that this particu lar piece of grass was and has boon getting better tho whole of tho time. What would David or Israel Terrell Bay to plowing up thoir pastures that have been grazed since longer than Brutus can recollect? what would any of tho cattle raisers of Clinton, Fayotte or Madison counties say to plowing up their pastures that have been grazed sinco "the red mau roamed ovor them These lands havo not had to bo enriched with "boutton" manures. On a farm of John Sanders, of Ponn township, are hill sides that havo been grazed since before my recollection, by Gen. John W. "Pope's Horefordfi;" aud the richness aud luxuriance of the blue gross that gtows thereon is something wonderful. Thoso hillsides hove not been "phosphated," nor enriched, ex cept as nature has furnished. Ten years to set a permanent panture ! ! That would be a wonderful thiDg ! Set your pasture at your convenience, then take care of it; use it decently, and be as sured that it leill got better for ten years; unless, well yes; uuless wheu you got down south, in Uniou towuBhip, the soil gets weak and "pasturo runs out." It is not that way up in this "north end." But for tho fact that "Ciesar promised to appear unto Brutus at Phillippi," this arti cle on "pormauaut pasture" would not have boon written, for tho subject, although a good one for a text at any and all times, is getting "a leotle" bit "throad bare," just now. It is very gratifying indeed, to know that Clodhopper is not personally obnoxious to Brutus. Clodhopper dosires and courts nil the criticism his orticlos doservo. Good uatured controversy is the lifo of a news paper, but "to bo lashed with a Miltonian whip of scorpions" is too, too cVn?; we'd nover survive that. Caesab, alios Clodhopper. Glenwood, August 27, 1885. Notes from East Liverpool. Ed. Highland News : Thinking that other readers of your interesting paper may, like myself, be interested and ben efitted by notes of wayfarers from "Old Highland," I venture to offer a few jottings from East Liverpool, a Republican strong hold in Eastern Ohio. East Liverpool is situate 44 miles W. N W. of Pittsburg, on the Ohio river, in Cc 'umbiana county, almost at the junction of the three States, Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. It oontaius about 7,000 inhabitants, chiefly English or of EDglish descent, and is a wide-awake protective tariff, manufacturing town. It is chiefly noted for its potteries, of which I shall speak in another letter. The city is built on a comparatively level piece of bottom land, surrounded on two sides by the river. which makes a bend at this point, and on the remaining sides by steep hills, which rise high above the town and afford a view of tho river for miles both np and down The plan of the oity is adapted to cir cumstances, the streets running any woy, other thau parallel and at right angles, something like Knickerbocker's New York, differing very much indeed from the wide, smooth, and well-shaded streets of the Modol City." Level land is very hard to find here as most of the country "stands on its edgo," and where it is found, mainly along the river, is valued at fabulous prices Tho town is supplied with water from tho river. The reservoir, holding two and a half millions of gallons, is sufficiently high above the town to allord pressure ouough to throw water over the highest buildings in tho city, thus doing away with the necessity for a firo-eugine, though cot of a fire department, iu which respect the city will rank with those of like size. This is ouo of the citizies of the United Stutet that baa long used natural gas for lighting, mechanical, and other purposes, Here the street lamps burn night aud day as the gas costs less thau what would pay for the lighting alono. tins is used for fuel both for heating and oooking purposes Orates aro filled with door knobs, fire clay, sumo iucombustiblo substance and tho gas turned on and regulated to suit the occasiou, or tho door knobs, etc., limy be dispensed with and tho gas alone naed. For cooking tho common cooking-stove or tho regular gas-stove may be naed and the heat regulated to suit tbo demand. The natural gas crate has takon a firm hold of Ohio people In particular, and has assumed almost tho dimensions of tho "oil cra.o" of a few years ago. Gas wells are being sunk at various places throughout Ohio, with a marked success, and In timo natural gas will probably work as great a revolution in mechanical arts as did coal. By many natural gas is regarded as "some thing new under the sun," but on the con trary it is as "old as tho bills." Tho holy fires of Baku on the Caspian, and many of the sacred fires of the Greeks were thus supplied with fuel. The Chinese have for ages used tho gas which issues froc coil beds near Peking for evaporating brines. It was kuown aud used iu England iu the seventeenth century, and Frodonio, N. Y.t has boon lighted with it for over fifty years. At the Kanawha salt-wells and various other places in the United States it has long been kuown and used. The noturol scenery here is fine beyond description; by many it is said to surpass the far famed scenery of the Hudson, but on this point I will not venture an opinion.

It has but ono railroad, tho Cleveland A Tittsburg, but the river is at least equal to another. All the passouger packets stop bore, and Tho Return" makes daily trips between this point and Stoubenville, O. I had the pleasure of taking a trip, in company with a few friends, on this littlo steamer, to Brown's island, somo fifteen or twenty miles below hero, nnd tho kind treatment of Capt. Bradley, of "Tho Return," and Mr. Meiser, of Brown's island, will long be remembered in conucction with that pleas ant excursion. Above East Liverpool about four miles, is Smith's Ferry, iu the "oil region" where tho Staudard Oil Co. and several other par ties have refinerios, and of which I will speak at -souio future time. The Tri-State Reunion of soldiers and sailors of the late war was held hero Aug. 14th. Twenty-nine G. A. R. posts, several old regimental organizations, four artillory squads, aud twenty-two bands, in all about 2,500 men formed iu line of march, making a very imposing spectacle indeed. Ad- reascs were made by Geu. Brown, Capt. Forokor, and Major McKinlcy. The ar rangements were all complete and tho preparations for fcodiug tho multitude was on a grand scale, so that thero was taken p many baskets full, so many that a few days after twenty bushels of buns and sandwiches sold for a dollar. Many who xpectcd to reap a harvest from a hungry host were sadly disappointed and concluded to leave such business in the future to thoso to whom the task might be assigned. As my letter has assumed considerable proportions I will leave the potteries till my next. Yours truly, II. F. n. Erysipelas and Salt ltheuni waa driven en- irely away from Mrs. J. C.
