Eight or tea bot

onlv a dull torpor that ruminated and
benumbed.
Suddenly one of the drinkers, who
was running a wandering eye over a
morning journal spread out before
him. uttered a great shout of laughter. ,
His companions turned their heads
slowiy, with a gesture of automatons
moved by a single spring.
"See! see!" cried the laugher, point

One month later, the comte de
Montrozay, his elbows on his chair
arm', his head on his hands, regarded
dancing and leaping in the wide
chimney the flickering flame of the
vine twigs The autumn was cold and
fire was already needed. But the
clear sunlight, through the wide
opened windows projected itself into
the austere hall, brightened the som
ber tapestries and furniture, and
illuminated the panoplies of arms
upon the walls like great steel roses,
whilst the winds brought in from the
grounds without the moist perfume of
the last flowers and the soft gurgle of
the neighboring river.
Presently there was a rap on the

ragev A remedy was needed for this
insufferable state of things, a re me

terror to those miscreants as would

law. as it is now understood It was
orderly, methodical and fair in its
processes, and was strougly opposed
to violence or mob rule- Its dis
tinctive feature, according to the
New York Herald, was simply that
its decrees and findings were exe
cuted sternly and swiltlv upon the
spot of their delivery.
Charles Lynch, whose name is as

) ^id^ in fVnusylvania county.
The region in which he lived be
ea*ne at one period of the revolution
infested by bauds of Tories and out*
laws, whose depredations upon the
defenceless people extended from the
lower parts of North Carolina and
Virginia to the passes of the Blue
Bidge and headwaters of the Janies

the code of Colonel Lynch and hi*

less procedure a jury was selected
from Lynch's men. over which he
presided as judge: the captivbs were
tried separately, the accused allowed
to make his own defense, and to
show cause, if he could, why he
should not be punished. If found
guilty the punishment was inflicted

mistake. A writer who knew <'ol-j

that he never willingly condemned a
criminal to capital punishment: that
prisoners were frequently let off with
a severe flogging and then liberated
; on condition that they would leave
; the country.

ROTATION FOR FRUITS AS

;
Crop rotation has become quite
essential to agriculture in ordci* to
keep up the fertility of the soil. 1ml
very few seem to consider it neces
sary to extend this same plan to the
fruit trees, vines and shrubs. Never
theless, it is pretty well known now
that the continuous growing of auy
one crop of fruits in one place tend,
to concentrate all of the blights,

destroy these diseases is to kill off
all of 'the plants and trees, and to
burn root and branch. Hy trans
ferring the ore haul to another part
of the farm we can often obtain better
results than if we devoted all our
time to sprav ing and picking off iu '
fected leaves.
We generativ select the best soil
for potatoes and wish to grow them
there continually, but in time Might
and rot make it' impossible, and we
; bave t0 move the potato field The :
same is true with onions, sweet pota
toes, cabbages und other vegetables,
\ 0 „ , be sum,, holds exactly true
with raspberries, blackberries, cur
