It isagains the anti-republican admin

Grant in his letter; that the canvass

when it sees Cameron, Conkling, Morton

the president and sustainine Lim in his
arrogant assumption of power. The
country will say, and truly,' what

Of reform on the Hayes plan the Kan

Hayes contributed $300to the crusa

nothing, is said to be a member of the
American alliance, indorses Grant's ad

having solemnly promised his competi

A Western' editor's account of a
transfusion of blood into a rival : An
enormous jackass was procured from the
country and taken up into the editorial
rooms. The surgeon opened its femoral
artery near the neck, and carefully
inserted an old piece of gas pipe. This
was connected with Mr. Iirown's jugular
vein, and about four buckets of blood
were transfused into liim."
The fact that Gov. Hayes, in his let
ter of acceptance, promises the office
holders that he will not turn them out,
but will rather give them a life tenure,
ought to make them comfortable under
the assessments now being levied upon
them for campaign purposes. It is evi
dent, howevei. that their contributions
must be heavier than usual this year.
In speaking of times past and gone an
exchange remarks : " One hundred
years ago a woman did not lose caste by
wetting her hands in dish water or rub
bing the skin off her knuckles on a wash
board.'' Ah! those were good old
times! Few boys now living have ever
seen their mothers grow red in the face
and jump up and down as the handle of
a wash-tub broke off.
An Alabama man writes as follows
concerning a chicken cholera remedy;
" Last year I lost Upward of one hun
dred chickens. I tried every remedy I
could hear of, without success. This
year I have given my chickens a feed or
tw every week of onions tops boiled and
mixed with meal, and kept a little sack
of tar in the trough, and have found it
successful have not lost a chicken. My
neighbors and the tenants on our place
have lost nearly all they had."
Theke is no doubt about the meaning
of Hayes' letter of acceptance in relation
to civil service. He therein invites the
co-operatiou of the hundred thousand of-fi-nolders
and gives notice he will re
tain them if they perform, not their offi
cial but their political duty in the pre
sent campaign. He is chained hand and
foot to Grantism, and dare not manifest
the slightest opposition. The people
have suffered enough from the present
administration, and propose to make an
entire new deal. Pittsburg Pot.
If political men should be judged by
those who make places for them, then
Gov. Hayes is the shadow of Morten,
Cameron and Conkling, each of whom
contributed his share of the full strength
at Cincinnati, to give him the nomina

Twenty years ago a Liverpool steam

Some one lately asked Mr. William
Cullen Rryant where his " Thanatopsis"
was written, as it was a tradition that he
wrote it when a student in Williams
college. Mr. Bryant answered that, en

in 1811vhe left it in May, 181', intend
ing to go to Kale, but as his father's
means did not permit of that, he re
tured to his home in Cummington, his
native place, and there, one after

woods of that region, he rested beneath
a group ot majestic forei-t trees, and

Prentice Muleord writes fiom the
centennial: "There are many famous

dications in Independence hall, Wash
ington was a jerseveririg setter as well

He must have had greut talent ior sit-
ng. Ihe suspicion will develop itself
here that the father of his country never
saw a chair but that he desired to mo
nopolize it. He said to himself: 'There
is another chair; let u confer immor
tality iiKn it and the family who own
it.' Then he sat down. This made one
of the 'fust families.' Apparently, all
these first families have sent their chairs
to Independence hall. They stand in

Zack Chandler has been chosen
chairman of the republican national ex

From an elaborate investigation of the
composition of wood ashes from house
hold fire, by Prof. Storer, it appears
these contain, unleached and dry, aDout
eight and one-half per cent, of potash,
somewhat more than the lowest grades
of German potash palts. Either leached
or unleached, the dry ashes contain
about two per cent, of phosphoric, acid,
of which none occurs in the German
salts. In Storer's field experiments,
wood ashes (unleached) applied in large
quantities brought larger yields of barley,
beans and rutabagas than farm-yard
manure, city stable manure, or any
single potash salt, as sulphate, carbon

assembled on the 16th of June in Balti

ing that time fifty-three ballots were
taken, commencing with 131 for Scott,
133 for Fillmore and 29 for Webster, and
continuing with very little variation
until the last, when Scott had 150, Fill

A Hint A hont Compost.
No amount of experiments, talk and
large results will draw farmers in a body
away from keeping live stock and the
manure piles, and turn them wholly to
"chemical farming." The compost heap
will still be an adjunct of the farmer's
barn yard, nor would the Scientific
Farmer have it otherwise. It says:
"There is a great deal of unnecessary
work expended upon this plant-food
factory, however, in repeated shoveling
to prevent overheating. Though mix
ing and proper pulverization are of
course essential ; beyond this work spent
in shoveling is thrown away. "Heating'
is the oxidation by the oxygen of the air
of various substances in the compost, and
is necessary, te a certain extent, for the
decomposition of the coarse materials.
Over heating is usually checked by
frequent stirring. But this only checks
it for a time, and afterward, by the
increased access of atmospheric oxygen,
the heating (oxidation) is accelerated.
A better way is to pack the surlace
down solidly, by simply treading upon
the heap with the feet (after pulveriza
tion), or still better to spread a little
earth over the pile, taking care to com
pact somewhat. Either method tends
to exclude air, and thus prevents too
rapid oxidation. By adopting this
practice so far as advisible, a large pro
porticn of the expense in making com
posts may be avoided."
This old-fashioned luxury is coming
into style again, and 'as it is really a
delicious dish when properly prepared,
it may be acceptable to know the modus
operandi ot doing it right. Take a six
quart panful of ashes (hard-wood ashes
if possible, as they are stronger); put

Strain off the lye, and rinse thoroughly

Washington, owing to his exalted char
acter and invaluable services t his coun
try, was chosen first president under the
constitution. He was re-elected by
nearly a unanimous vote. During his
administration the federal and republican
parties sprang into existence. On Wash
ington's retirement Jehn Adams, of
Massachusetts, became by common con
sent the candidate of the federal party
for president, and Thomas Jefferson, of
the republican party. Adams was chosen
president and Jeflerson vice-president,
having the next highest number of votes.
In the year 1800 a caucus of members of
congress was held in Philadelphia, which
nominated Thomas Jefferson for presi
dent and Aaron Burr for vice-president.
They were elected over John Adams and
Charles C. Pinckney. Mr. Jefferson was
renominated and re elected in 1804, with
Georee Clinton, of New York, as vice
president, over Charles C. Pinckney ard
Rufus King. James Madison was nomi
nated by a congressional caucus in Janu
ary, 1808, and elected president by a
large majority. He was renominated 1n
the same manner in 1812. In September
of the same year a convention representing
eleven states was held in New York,
which nominated De Witt Clinton.
James Madison was re-elected. In 1816
James Monroe was nominated by a congres
sional caucus, hereceivingsixty-five votes,
and W.H.Crawford fifty-four. The federal
ists named Rufus King. Mr. Monroe was
elected, and in 1820 he was re-elected
without opposition. In 1824 the congres
sional caucus . system was opposed by a
large portion ot the republican party.
But sixty-six members responded to the
call, and these nominated Wm. II.
Crawford for the presidency. Jackson,
Clay and Adams wore also nominated by
various states, and" there was no choice
by thepeople. The houseof representatives
elected John Quincy Adams. Immedi
ately after this election, Andrew Jackson
was nominated by . the legislature ot
Tennessee. That action was indorsed by
the democratic party of the country,
and he was elected in 1S28 over Mr.
THE FIRST CONVENTION.
In 1830 the first political national con
vention in this country was held in Phil
adelphia. It was called the United States

same convention met in Baltimore in
1832, and nominated William Wirt, of
Maryland, for president. In May 1832,
a democratic national convention was
held in Baltimore to name a candidate
for the vice-presidency. Martin Van

Some fifty years ago Anderson said :
"One thousand sheep folded on an
acre of ground one day, would manure
it sufficiently to feed one thousand and
one sheep ; so that, by this process, land
which, the first year, can leed only one
thousand sheep, may, the next year, as
a result of their own droppings, feed
thirteen hundred and sixty-five.
Sprengel showed that the mamre of
fourteen hundred sheep, for one day, is
equal to manuring highly one acre of
land, whicn is about lour sneep per
year. Mechi, a still more recent
authority, estimates that fifteen hun
dred sheep, folded on an acre of Jand for
twenty-four hours, or one hundred sheep
for fifteen days, would manure the land
sufficiently to carry it through four
years' rotation. In the United States,
much less attention has been paid to
this item of profit to be derived from
the flock. Only upon the poorer lands,
And then only from the exceptionally
few close observing and calculating men,
do we meet with any notice of it at all.
Not so in England and France, where
the necessities imposed by density of
population, and consequent enchanced
value of land, comiel recognition of

Bchbhck's Sea WekdTokic In the atmosphere
experienced here during the summer months, the
lethargy produced by the heat takes away the de
sire for wholesome food, and frequent perspirations
reduce bodily energy, particularly these suffering
from the effects of debilitating diseases. In order
to keep a natural healthful activity of the system,
we must resort to artificial means. For this pur
pose Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic is very effectual. A
few doses will create aa appetite and give fresh vig
or to the enervated body. For dyspepsia it is inval
uable. Many eminent physicians hava doubted
whether dyspepsia can be permanently cured by tht
drugs which are generafy employed for that pur
pose. The Sea Weed Tonic in its nature ia totally
different from such drugs. It contains no corrosive
minerals or acids ; in fact it assists the regular oper
ations of nature, and supplies her deficiencies. The
tonic in its nature so much resembles the gastric
juice that it is almost Identical with that fluid. The
gastric Juice is the najural solvent which, la a
health condition of the body, causes the food to be
digested; and when this juice Is not excreted in
sufficient quantities, indigestion, with all its dis
tressing symptoms, follows. The Sea Weed Tonia
performs the duty of the gastric juice when the lat
ter ia deficient. Schenck's Ses Weed Tonic sold by

Without the sheep of England to day
her agriculture would be a failure.
Their value to English agriculture is to
b found in their manure. Though not
of themselves profitable, they make it
possible for other branches of agricul
tural industry to become so. Prof.
CVileman, of the agricultural college at
Cirencester, once said:
" It is not difficult to show that sheep
alone, apart from their influence on the
corn crops, will not pay a living profit
after nil the expenses of growing the
crops are considered."

Anybody can build it with a little help

The other post may be lightr-r. Oak or

the gate not so long as thvse used in the
field where loads of hay are to pass
through ; ten and a half or eleven feet
for field, and nine and a half to ten feet
for carriage way roads, is wide enough.
For the frame, cut the end pieces thiee

of almost any kind of sound wood ; pine
is irood enough. The bars are two and a
half by four inches, framed into end
pieces, with an inch mortice and tenon,
and pinned with half inch pius. The
pickets are one by .three inches, for a
field gate, or one by two inches for smal

bars. The hooks used in hanging the
gate should be thr.e-tourthsinch square,

with screw and nut. For the brace, use
