The streets are well paved and clean, and the roads are well kept; the railway stations are in perfect order, the fields are trim and neat; the garden hedges, fences, lawns, all exhibit care and over sight. The- smoke and fog blaken and stain -all the build ings, but English care more than compensates for the una voidable cvu. We are not so J particular here. We have a clear atmosphere with brilliant skies, but we are all, so far as public places are concerned, sons and daughters Of Shabby ville. This is the more strange because in our households no such reproach is true. There are no neater or' better kept homes anywhere than Ameri can homes, nor are-any people cleanlier or neater in their hab its. It is wholly in public mat ters that this .shabbiness that we complain of exists. The blame rests principally upon of ficial persons who neglect their duties, but our people are strangely indifferent to anything of a. public nature. Every fanner should have a complete map of his farm with each field, pasture and wood .lot, together with all the fences, roads and ditches plainly drawn, and numbered or named, so they cah.be readily designated. Few fanners can appreciate the real value of one until they have tried the experiment, for with a map of the .farm before you, you can direct your workman to any partvof it "without the possibility of their making, a mistake. You can. plan ,your improve ments and estimate their cost at your leisure, instead of spending half -a .day of valuable time in surveying the land itself. It should be about two feet square' or larger il desired, and drawn on thick" cardboard to prevent its being torn or -defaced. Let our farmers try.the experiment, mey win .soon learn .itsyaiue. AH necessary surveys; may be made when other farm work is not' pressing,. and the map may be,drawn and the lots-numbered in the winter-evenings.; . ..- The sheep .bites closer than the ox: - He is,designed to live where the other would starve ; he was designed in many places to follow the other and to gath er sufficient nourishment, where' the other would be unable- to. crop a single blade. Two pur poses areianswered by this: All the nutriment that the land pro duces is-gathered from it while the pasture' is made to produce more herbage than by any oth er means it could be forced to dc the sheep, by its close bite notonly lodsens.the roots of tlfe grass and stimulates their spreading, but by cutting offthe short suckers causes the plant to'thTdw'out fresh, more numer ous and'stronger ones, and thus improves and increases the val ue of the crop. Nothing will more expeditiously or effectual ly make a rich, permanent pas ture than its being occasionally an'd closely eaten down by sheep. afford to be any circum- - s I! A "man cannct unfaithful under stances, a man cannot afford to be mean, at any time; a man cannot afford, to. do less than his best at all times' and under all circumstances. No matter how wrongly you are placed and no matter how unjustly you are treated, you cannot, for your own sake, afford to use anything but your better self, nor to ren der anything but your better service;, you cannot afford to lie a to liar; you cannot afford to be .mean to a mean ihan; you cannot afford to do other than ,deal upright' with any man, no matter what exigencies may ex ist between him and you. No man can afford to be anything but a true man, living in his higher nature and acting from the highest considerations. The- "perfect dairy cow" is a prolific thing just now, and as usual, authorities differ as to what qualities such a cow should possess. A writer in the Com ity Gentleman combats the idea of combining "milk and beef" in a dairy animal. He says the beef quality is of no use during the milking life of an animal.and when she gets so old as to be of little value lor milk, she is of no va'-ue for beef. " Beef," he says "at the end of the milking peri- 00 .s tnc oniy aavantage in tins case, for when the animal is rais ed for beef alone, the dairy ele ment loses its force, no.t being required." He advises the uni on of the qualities of the Ayr shire and Jersey. Wlierc l Jly I5oy-To-ij;lit.- Iaft L teeming lln'evll bLau, TLe f.7iW of .-in are iile.

A Pcccliir Cu.se- A white woman with two children was put offthe down train on Friday night, having no mouey to pay fare. The woman was en route from Taylorsville to Galveston, where her father lives. The proprie tor of the Central House got up a' subscsiption and she was sent on her way rejoicing on Satur dao. Brenham Banner. That case was a peculiar one. The woman got .on the train at Austin without any ticket and without any money. When the conductor asked for the fare she told him she had no money, and he informed' her that he could only cany her to the next station. The writer happened to be sitting nearher, and she informed him that the conduc tor was acting badly, and insis ted that she had a right to ride for nothing. It was suggested that she try her hand at a contri bution from the passengers, a suggestion upon which she ac ted quite briskly. Indeed shd sailed around amongst them and demanded their money as if she had a right to it. Enough was raised to take her to Bren ham, the conductor himself con tributing. It was nearly day when she landed there, and it was known that the charitable people there would help her on her way.- We do not remem ber that she said "thankee" to any one who gave her assistance. She looked rather as if she felt that she had a right to all she got. Houston Age. 1 hi 1 Our liveliest sympathies are enlisted in behalf of the G. C. & S. F. Railway and the general welfare of our business commu nity. We are anxious to see our people discharge the obliga tions assumed in the agreements entered into between our busi ness men and the management of that corporation which, is struggling to accomplish one of the grandest schemes for Texas' which now attracts our atten tion. Richmond has already re ceived tangible proof of the godd we may derive from the completfon of this great artery of commerce, and should exert every energy for the promotion of her future prosperity, by uni ting every possible enterprise in her own favor. Our people must remember that they must be just to others and may then demand their full dues' from them. A word to the wise etc.--Richmond Foxr Counties.

Any patch es of weeds or briers many be eradicated in a short time by in troducing sheep.
