Who Should Attend Them and
W$3 Attend at all.
Why is the farmer receiving so
much attention to day, when far
a more than a quarter of a century
in this American pell mell rush
for wealth, fame and glory, he has
been so far distanced as to have
been almost entlhely lost sight
All others in this age of rush,
flush, whirl and dash, have been
and are still bringing into requisi
tion every ounce of brain, gift
and genius that 'they havei stock
trying to keep up with this never
tiring army in its onward march.
The farmers-that is, the great
majority of them--have seemed
n6t to catch the spirit that has so
aroused all others, and this may
be'one of the reasons why he is
to-day so far behind.
'The farmer has ever been avery
r important factor in this as in all
other countries, and that fact has
never been more fully realized
t an it is now among our peoplei
- And hence there are being made
juetnow some of the most commend
able and I sincerely believe unsel
fish efforts by intelligent, far see
ing and noble hearted men, to
bring the great farming masses to
the front and let them stand at
the head of the column-the post
tion which by right is theirs. But
we are so far behind that we must
not expect to.step to the front at
one Strtde or to burst asunder our
environments and clear the way to
wealth and happiness or even
reach a healthy prosperity by a
few spasmodic efforts. Neither is
it wise for us to concide, beoause
we; as a class have not looked as
well to our own interest as we
should have ldose, and hence find
oreselves- trammeled and. en
tangled.annd badly minthe rear, that
ery san'q hand is against its,

There a aunquestionably aat
strange solieitude .'felt for the a
bettermient of the condition of the -
fargmer by the right hearted, clear t
headed men at motiey and brain
in our midst. It is really not •
necessary to say that it is a fact
that there i none hiut the knave
or fooltat does feel a deep interest
in the well being of the farmer,
I.now want to -emphasize the
factthat it is my'opiniion, after a
careful investigation or close ob- a
servation that Farmers Institutes

d leys are little altered, as they then
existed. Still the old soldiers
could not revisit them without
r starting anew the questions of
locality. On the spot claimed to
have marked the memorable inter
view between Generals Grant and
Pemberton, stands a huge ten

on a stone foundation, as coin
memorative of this notable event.
Of course it way a spot curiously

F.rom the Vicksburg Post is
gleaned the following loints in
the discussion taken from first
WIEnRE IS THIE SPOT?
Cul. D. Pierson, of Natchitoches,
and Captain Wm. Kinney, of the
Third Louisiana, went out yester
day to the gun which marks the
spot where Generals Grant and
Pemberton held their conference,
from which Vicksburg was sur
rendered. Bfth the gentlemen
think the location is wrong though
Captain T. G. (Godman says the
spot was certified to by Gen.
Grant, and personally located by
the great Union general and his
engineers. Colonel Pierson states
that he and Captain Kinney saw
the thterview, which was carried
on in an undertone, and at con
elusion General Grant turned-and
gave this message to an aid i "Go i
tell Admiral Porter to cease fir- I
Ing." Had the spot been where I
the monument was and the cannon I
now is, Colonel Pierson says it t
would have been impossible to
have heard the words. The con- a
ference was just below the fort I
which the Federals called Fort r
Hill, and the Confederates Fort c
Parapet, the Confederate Fort Hill c
being on the riyer. Back of the a
works that day, were Cockrell's :
Missourians. General Grant W.as
dressed in an old btouse with noth- .
ing but shoulder straps to indi
eate his rank. General Pember- n
ten, always inclined to be stylish, c
was resplendeht in a bright, new a
nunfform. Colonel Pierson says p
that an Illinois soldier, who was
with him there yesterday, agreed (
with him that the designation of g
the spot is wrong. a

opinion as related by the Comr -

the leading feature of the pro-.
gramme, always excepting the

afternoon, so the old soldiers had
along morning to devote to other
matters. Itdid not seem long,w
however, for some assembled at
the-cotton exchlnage to obtain
badges and all over the streets tI
knots of Veterans wOee to be seen ri
in eartjes onvertatibn, "fighting
their battles over again," whileI
many other visited the intrench-.
ments occupied by them during o
the siege and recalled those teriri

Incidents were innumerable dis
playing the candid expression of
opinions and social fraternizingof
these once opposing forces, and
the general sentiment was one of
united nationaisty, with no word
to cause the least abrasion. There
was not an incident to mar the

the Blue and Gray into contact on
