Perhaps some of the rentiers of the Standard would like to make their homes in the West; if so, I would re spectfully nsk theru to give Texas a passing call, and particularly Grayson county, before finally concluding to settle. Texas is one of the best re gions on the broad earth for fruit. Teaches of all kinds grow here in the greatest perfection, even with little care. Mirny varieties of apples grow as well here as in any other country. Apricots, blackberries, and almost any of the pi uiu b family can be relied on for a good crop. The grape finds its natural home in Texas. These sections of sandy uplands are filled with grapes. Where the improved varieties are planted they reward the with a lavish return. The railroads now furnish cheap transportation to the markets of the world, and will continue to relieve U9 of our surplus crops at high prices, Fanners are very busy planting corn. Oats look well ; wheat looks very sorry through this section. Farmors are preparing to raise more grain aid less cotton. After an absence of a few months Mr. J. M. Brown returned Monday last from Tennessee, where he bad been visiting his parents, relatives and friends, anil his return plese9 severa young ladies liTe very much. Hi brother. J. J.

The coming of the Standard is always hailed with delight. Mar. 16, 1883. W. II. B, That farming is as sure, honorable, stable anu remunerative a business as oue can enter upon has been proved over and over ngaiu. It is true that other kinds of business trade, com tnerce, and some kinds ot manufactur ing that speculations of various kinds banking and joint stock companies have, especially of late years, attracted much atteution, and have been popular with dashing and ambitious young men; still, in the experience of a few past years, the statistics of business disasters and failures, the moral wreok of charac" ter and the crash and ruin of men who are, reputed rich, have proven that farming is an industry lessfluctua ting, less depressed by hard times, less subject to failures a pursuit in which temptation to dishonesty has had less influence and in which men have pur sued the even tenor of their way with less anxiety and with less exposure to financial ruiu and wreck of moral charac ter than any other kind of business, Tnat colossal fortunes have been, here and there, now and then, built up by speculation, sharp, practices, gambling in stocks, spoliation of labor and by direct and indirect robbery, we cannot deny ; but those fortunes, however large anil glittering, do not stand up to the public gaze as monuments of public honor, of patient industry, of painstak ing, honest labor, but they tower rather as beacons, 'warning men to beware of the hidden rocks and treacherous quick sands on which so many of life's voyages l 1 rtn n iave been wrecKed. inese fortunes have no solid foundations to rest upon and when the floods come and the winds blow they fall like the house built upon and. Farming is a business that rests pon a sure foundation. It demands ione3t work. It is not built up tne spoliation or ottiers. its gains though they may be small, are legiti mate and honorably earned. There more capital invested to-day in agricu tural pursuits than in all other ndustnes combined. It pays more for the support of the Government and receives lets protection and considera tion from the Government thau any other interest. - In looking at farming in the broad full light of practical utility, of safe investments, of Jsure dividends and of the best public service, we cannot help commending it, and urging it upon the young as a pursuit upon the whole more satisfying, less hnzardous, more useful, honorable and remunerative than any other business. It gives a scoupe to the intellect, a play to the imagination, a range to the eflections, a field to the inventive powers, a work for hand and heart w hich no other in dustry supplies. But for any adequate realization of the advantages, the remuneration, and the satisfactions of farming, there must be among our patrons and farmers a high education, a better culture and a larger appreciation of and devotion to their own peculiar calling. They must see and feel its importance in its financial, social, moral and industrial bearings, and prepare themselves with as much zeal and earnestness by careful experiments, close observation and pel severing study as those who propose to enter the learned professions, or the paths of science, or the study and the practice of the arts. Spirit of Kansas. is City and Country. It is said that all kinds of vice and evils abound in cities. This is only because men are abuudant. Compcnsa. tion runs through everything ; but paved streets, gas-burners, water-pipes, and bath-rooms, public libraries, muse ums and art galleries, magnificient architectural works, the thronging and striving of commercial enterprise, the endless co-operation, tho clashing of interests, the mighty inspiration of life so vast and varied, the refined cosmo politan spit ti. and nmuuer where meii know all the people broadly and grandly and benevolently but never3ee or think of them or uotice them or their business individually unless there is some good reasou for it all these characteristics of the city are the necessary conditions for making men and society iu the best sense of the words. Polite and urbane thes fine words are immediately derived from words that mean city. And if pagan, a dweller in the village, who couldn't have the every-day culture of the city; and heathen, a dweller of the heath; and rustic, an inhabitant of the country ; and clown, a cultivator of the ground and other words of similar character, are now terms without the direct meaning they once had, it is because men have congregated in cities and then spread their influences so as to inform the country more with city life. But the country will all be city 1 ins is what we want; and we are coming to it. Railways, telegraphs daily mails and newspapers, machinery for the drudgery of farming, the wedding of the intellectual and handicraft for developing the wealth, bounty and peauty of the field all these are tend ing to make all country one broad city, spreading over the plains, valleys and hills, life, neighborhood, art, through the inspiration and skill of man. Weekly Magazine. and individuals, have given this subject much attenlion and thorough investiga tion, and have developed methods by which the sugar may now be produced in paying quantities, and manufactures are being established in all parts of the country. From personal observa tion and experience, we believe that sorghum syrup and sugar manufac tures is destined to a high rank in American agriculture, from the sugar cane belt of the South to the southern limit of the spring wheat region of the North. Sorghum requires a light warm suL, rather poor than rich. It should be manured with mineral fertili zers, such as ashes, bone meal, patassic manures, etc. .Nitrogenous manures are injurious rather than beneficial, except they be thoroughly decomposed and mixed with the soil. It should be planted in open drills about 3 feet apart, to admit tho sunlight to the stalks and lower leaves to promote the development and perfection of sugar. Sow about four quarts of ceed per acre. "Gooso" Wheat in Oregon. The Spring and Autumn are, by common consent, the best times for using medicine to purify the blood This is very easily understood, and is founded on the wise law that precau tion is better than cure. The spring precedes summer, when the action of the heart is stimulated by tho heat which opens the skin, relaxes the tis sues, and eives the organs a task of more labor. The autumn preceeds winter, when cold benumbs the nerves, closes the skin, and loads tho circula tory powers. If the blood is not pure and clean the consequences are that it deposites its impurities in its sluggish course through the various organs necessary to life and they are poisoned. Now is the time to avoid them by us ing Edward Wilder's Sarsaparilla and Potash, and having health make 6tire in the trying time before us. . v Sorghum Sorgho. 'In this state," says the San Fran cisco Journal ot Commerce, "we have a grade of wheat known as goose wheat. It is so called because the wheat grown in the state, all came from two or three grains taken from tho crop of a wild goose. Tlte wheat has a very hard, coarse shell, and makes a peculiar grade of flower. No wheat like it is known in this country. The people of Oregon have wondered from whence it came. This wonder is explained. From samples of foreign wheat at the agricultural department, the exact duplicate of the goose wheat of Oregon has deen found. This wheat comes from a stnnll province in Spain, and the only place where it has been grown. From that one may safely surmise that the wild gooso flies round the world in pretty fast time. If we remember right, it was a farmer who lived in Marion county, about opposite where Wheatland now is, and the gooso was killed in the winter of 1850." Sun flower. "Whom Should We Honor. To the Standard. We should honor our working men for he who has no detfinite aim in view must be a miserable being, feeling not the importance of life, knowing not its purpose, and therefore failing to ap preciate it.s present enjoyments. He lias but an empty soul, his mind is one vast blank, no beautiful vision meets bis gaze, he hears no music in the winds or the waves, nature to him is a closed book. Let us honor our work- "Itoiigh on Kats." Clears out rats, mice, roaches, flies, ants, bed bngs, skunks, chipmunks, gophers. 15c. Druggists. If every farmer would keep a record of the number of eggs laid, chickens hatched and those sold or eaten each year, they would form the basis of most interesting statistics, and be a matter of surprise to everyone as to the value rep resented by them in money.

All writers agree that Sorghum came orignally from China, whence it was carried to Europe by a French missionary. It was brought to this country in 1851 and 1856. Sorghum had also been carried to South Africa Between 18G0 and 1870 seed from the two latter countries was brought to America. Under the influences ot these various climates distinct varieties have developed. Those planted side by side in this country, became cross fertillized and produced numerous va riations, until now there are some 90 named varieties, many of which, how ever, are only synonymous, but there are probably 40 or 50 distinct sorts and several species, which, however are very easily cross-fertilized. re de scribe only those which have come into more or less general use. I he niatui facture of sugar from the sorghum after 25 years of experimenting, had developed so little that its best friends lespaired of practical results, mainly because of the difficulty of separating cane sugar from the glucose and organic matter in the juice; partly because no variety of sorghum ripened early enough to permit of a profitable manu facture by the crude methods in vouge but which were sufficient for sugar ma king from Southern sugar cane. In 1877 it was discovered that the Early Sibley's Grain and Farm Seeds Ma mini. The Sunflower is rapidly acquiring a reputation as a valuable farm crop. ts seeds are superior food for poultry (said to improve tne meat,) niui it lias yielded 50 bushels per acre. The eaves are claimed to make excellent cattle fodder. The plant aflords efficient protection irom maiana and snouid be iberally planted in hedges about the house in all districts where that insidi ous disease prevails. It is said that 50 bushels of seed will yield 50 gallons of oil. The Chinese use the seed in dying silks; its oil as a lubricant and illumi- nant and for soap making; its leaves to adulterate tobacco. It is claimed that its flowers supply the best bee food, and that the pomace is superior to lin seed as cattle food. The 6eeds are also used as a diuretic medicine for horses in place of nitre, and as a remedy for heaves and are more to the horses' liking, In France the pith is used as a moxa, i. e.j burned upon the surface of the flesh for nervous troubles. The stalks may be used for fuel, and being very rich in potash the ashes would make admirable fertilizer. The oil of the seeds is also said to be a good table oil and an excellent substitute for linseed as a drying oil. Plant in rich loam soil. Fault-Finding at the Tahle. American Farm and Home. Woe betide the woman married to a man who systematically growls at the table."" Life brings her neither peace nor happiness. Three times a day her tyrant growls and snarles like any other wild animal over his food. I knew a man of this kind once, and how I pitied his wife and daughters. One of the latter married in haste, one day joined her fortunes with those of a com paratively poor man not exactly in the same set as she was accustomed to live in, simply to have her n-.euls in peace. It is said she made her future husband swear that ho would never make a fuss over his dinner ; and I understand that to-day they are the happiest couple liv ing. Pweconciliation took place before they were married, but they left before the nuptial breakfast we all remarked that and now, though of course she visits the house, nothing could even in duce her to take a meal there. She is i woman of spirit. As for the growl er's wife poor womau 1 Maybe in younger days she might have thought of possible relief by means of divorce, and they do say, but they do not as sert it, though it came from a distin guished jurist, that something of thi3 kind was entertained; but such a plea of mental insanity, when only food was advanced, for in every other relation ot life that is to say, save when at table he was amiability itself. If he were only younger, the habit might be whipped out of him ; as it is, it can only be borne with patience. Fanners Shoutl be Headers. We know that farmers often claim that they have no time to rend. This is not always true. Indeed, it is true only when they don't want to read. No working man has more leisure time than tho fanner. There is not one day in ten, even in tho busiest eeason, that ho could not find one hour to devote to study, and during at least one-third of the year he-could spare two hours every day and often twice as many. Farm ers' boys have abundant time for read ing and study. This will seem wild language to some of our readers, but we know what we are writing about. We know all about farm life, and we know that any smart, ambitious boy on the farm can find as much time for study as he needs, if he only tries. And wo know that every farmer can find, on an average, more than one hour a day to devote to acquiring kuowledge. Kansas Farmer.

How a Delaware Hoy Had Fun. The Rev. Mr. Redman, pastor in charge of the M. E. church, of this place, some days ago called at a bouse in town and offered to pray with the family. Through a door in an ad joining room the preacher observed a stout boy belonging to the family with an old chicken hen under his arm. On being urged by the head of the family to release the hen and join in the devotions the undevont lad showed no signs of obedience, but stood stock Btill with the old hen under his arm while the family, led by the pastor, knelt in prayer. When the devout members of the family responded a hearty amen the attentive boy would pinch the old hen, w hereupon the tor tured fowl would utter a mournful cry, to the great amu?eraent of the boy.
