Arrived there lie
found Assistant Secretary Bussey,
who has charge of the appeals from
the.penslon office and who is in sym
pathy with the Commissioners ideas,
and Secretary Noble. An animated
discussion was at
once begun with
Tanner and Bussey on one side, and
Noble on tlie other. It is said that
the Hecretary gave tbem both to
understand itg tiie plainest sort of
language, that they were subordi
nates of His.
The Secretary has
serious objection to anything that
Tanner bas done, but he objects to
Tanner's way of doing them. He

To lie a skilful workman should he
the ainliition of thu former as well ns
the mechanic. Men of the highest
attainment«, lu every railing, are al
ways in theascendeuey. Bui how is
it with the farmer in general'.' An
idea here seems to prevail, ami with
some degree of accuracy, too, that
with the farmer it is a matter of
"luck," that the successful ones are
those that are »0 fo-tuuate u» to in
herit or marry into a good farm, or
are born w ith the proverbial "silver
spoon in the mouth" lu some other
way. The reason why I say that the
matter of luck seems to influence
farmers more than other men, is that
thuj evidently have less apprecia
tion for the force aud ulilily of brains
orskiifu! attainments. Hut tu look
at tlie mattei in Its true light, v. eoai
see that the advantages of ndencr,
skill and a high degree of lug m
ii equally as potent, uecessary, and
valuable with farmers as with any
class of men.
It is peculiar to some men to espe
cially excel In one branch, while
with others their talents are of the
opposite order, inclining towards a
versatility of attainments. Among
the latter class we should look for
the best farmers. It is 001 sufficient
that a man should know how to
I manage a fractious horse, drive a
four-horse team, plough
furrow, or eveu raise a good crop of
grain under favorable circumstances,
but It is equally as much in his line,
aud to his credit, to he an adept al

doctoring upou occasion, to pickle a
barrel of good meat, to make a batch
' t sourkraut, trim a fruit tree, set a
lien or some cabbage-plants, thin n
bed of radishes, ami do a score more
of useful things.
And yet I think I am safe in s ty
ing not one farmer in flfty will go iu
to a garden and properly set a plant
or use a hoe or rake. And it wont
take long to tell whers theirmistakee
are. In setting plants the custom is
to press the dirt on iop instead of on
tlie roots ami leaving tho soil loose
top. And in hoeing tlie invari
able practice is 10 hack the ground
aud hill up everything instead of us
ing a shuttling motion to loosen tiie
soil aml'hill uponly what needs it.
I have had hands actually getquar
reisomo and refuse to obey orders
when I would tell them to "not hill
up those plants." To be a "jack-of.
all-trades" is sometimes not credit
aide; but with a farmer he needs to
