EDITED BY J. W. SIMS. Local Option—once more. Below I copy aotna portion of a Mrraon preached bj Iter. A. M. Hills of Ravenna, on local option.'. It it impowiblt to do justice to tlx icrmon by a few axtractti but ll in too lout; to publiih in this col umn, to I shtill hava to Content wiyteH by eopjing a fc of tlie gems that tparkle all through th discourse. He eketchea ib aituation at tb present lima witb a mas ter hard, and the work which the Chris tian women of our State have dona in the last few years in the cause of temperance, and closes with a warning word to our Legislators, not to treat with contempt the expressed wishes of so larga a portion of the people of thia State, on the subject of looal option on the basis of woman suf frage.' 1 contest to a feeling of disappoint ment, at the action of our Legislature up to thia time, dodging the issue that most be met sometime in this decade, and the sooner it is done, the better it will be for State and Nation. There is a wide differ ence between a atatesuiao and a politician on who never looks beyond the success ol his party In the political oontesta of the day. ' The present Legislature have it in their power to pass a law that is just in its provisions that will wrong no one engagf d In honorable businpss,and which thousands of the best men and women in the State have petitioned for. There is no mistak ing the signs of the times; an enlightened public sentiment is fast rising up to the level 01 me neeus 01 ma Dour, ana tne time is coming when the temperance ele ment will be strong- enough to command the respect of political parties, and it mar be well for qtir law makers to remember that in a Republican government the source or all power ties with the people. and if a memlter elected by them neglects or refuses to carry out their expressed wishes, there is good reason to expect that his constituents will, sooner or later, in vite mm to stay at home. If the temper ance men and women will only hold the grounu tney can gain rrom any to day, working in season and out of season. 1 see no reason to fear for the final trinmph of the principles so dear to their hearts. lo tnis eiiil Jet unity prevail in our ooun cils atid let wisdom direct every move ment, ana let every word and every action tell on the side of truth and of right. There is no need of discouragement, for the influence of temperance workers is felt all over our land, a great advance having been made all along the lines in the last ten year, and we must work on, and 'keep praying as we go,' and keep our powder dry for offensive as well as defensive war fare. The Liquor Dealers' Association com plain that the women of this State are car rying the war right home, and thev, as a matter of self defence, will be obliged to defend lliemselvea and their traffic from the afwauitt of the Crusaders. I do not expect a local option law will be passed this year, but it will not be many years distant, for I have a firm and abid ing faith in the ultimate triumph of right over wrong, and ol truth over error, free- on! action on this subject la delayed by tne moral cownrdice or some of our law makers, but It will come in time. Let us watch and work .and wait, for we think we see the dawning of the morning of a better day. Listen to some of the ringing words of an earnest Christlau minister on this great question of the day: "Oh, this liquor traffic is more costly than wars, mora destructive than famine more deadly than plagues! It covers the land with idleness, poverty, disease and crime; it deadens all tne moral racultles, stifles reverence parity, truthfulnets.faith hope and law, and inflames all the worst passions of the soul. It undermines re ligion, plots agaiuat tha church, invades me social ana -lamuy circles, ana every where scatters sin. and minor v. and sick ness and death. It cuts down youth In its vigor; maiiuoou in its strength, audage in its weakness i It extinguishes natural af fections, cranes conjugal lore, blots nut nilal atlaohmsnt, blights parental nope, and brings down mourning aga witb sor row to tha grave. In the name of all that is pure and holy and dear to our hearts, we may well en quire, how does it happen that this mons ter evil it thus permitted to tyrannize over a Christian people? The answer to the ?uestion we give with foelings of shame, t is beaause men are so snared ill the meshes of evil appetites, and so hampered by the love of gain, and so weakened by cowardice, and so tied by business interests, and political ambition, that they do not heed the counsel of judgment, and the voice of consoienoe, and march together In irreaistabla columns, and put this enemy down. Some are morally paralysed by an enslaving love of the oup; others are in trade, and are afraid of olluudingand los ing customers from whom they expect to maks a few dollars) others hold oillces in city or county, or district, of Stale, and are afraid of incurring the ire aud opposition of those whose money and lime are invest ed in this tmfllo of human ruin i others want cilice and bid for the support of the liquor interest. Ah I How much they bid for ltl Kveu their principles and their oonsulenoe, arid the holiest convic tions of their souls. And so It comes about through the acquiescence, or the apathy, or the ignorance, or the selfish ness, or tha cowardice of men, that this evil is not.lhrottlsii, but rather thrives at the expeiio( the purity, and virtue, and uiauhixxl, auJ relignu., aul national prosperity- in iborl, at tlia expense of every nuinnii Interest, for which man should live or die.

She uses enormous quantities of green in painting her grass and her trees, but she has never - given nt a green man. One of her most popular and sno cessfill birds is the bluebird, but she has nevor tried, the experiment of making a blue woman. ' Suoh blue persona as we may meet from time to time are the work of art, not of nature, and they are univer- lly regarded as uncalled-for and inexcu sable. . - -. i . . Occasionally a man of a deep-blue com plexion make his appearance In pnbllo and attracts general and unfavorable com ment. Old New Yorkers will remember the blue man who, twenty-five year ago, was contemporary with those now vanish ed institutions, the 'Lime-kiln Man,' and 'Four-cent Man.' People said that the blueness of the 'Blue Man' was due to his excessive use of nitrate of silver, and there were few who took the trouble to question this explanation. But who, on reflection, ever is addicted to nitrate of silver, either as a beverage or art article of diet?" Used in ellhcr way it would be hotter than the soup at a railway restanrant far too hot, in fact, to be assimilated by any one bat a salamander. Still, it is possible, that in some obscure scientific way, nitrate of sil ver can be Introduced into the. human sto mach, with the blue oonsequenoea popular ly attributed to it. There is, however, a blue man now living in the suberbs of St, Louis, who never looked npon nitrate ot silver, and the origin, of whose blueucs is perfectly well known to a wide circle of his townsmon. The story of this unfortu nate man suggests a possible explanation of all other casual blue men who have Irom time to time appeared in different parts of the country. , Everybody in east St. Louis knows, by reputation, Mr. Kelluer of Kellner 4 Schwartz the eminent dyer. lie is a wormy out obstinate man. and Is of poor, but (lennan origin. When ho once re ceives a Prcilldice Mirnintir it man ha nun never oe inuuceu to overcome it. Long ego heconceived a most violent prejudice against Mr. Walker, who is, according to the testimony of his friends, a really unob jectionable young nian. The facts seom to be that Mr. Walker some years auo was overheard by Mr. Kellner, in the aot of s peaking in disrespectful terms of the trom bone, an instiument to which Mr. Kellner has been for years unhappily and habitual ly addicted. Greatly outraged by what he uuusiueieu n uiuiruct aiiaca on ins repu tation, Mr. Kelluer indignantly told Mr. Walker that ho was a scoundrel, and tor unite mm ever to cross his threshold. This prohibitum was an extremely pain fill thing to Mr. Walker. He had lieen fur some months a warm admirer of Miss Kellner, and had been accustomed to spend three evenings in a week in her so ciety. Knowing tho inexorable charactor of the indignant dyer, ho foresaw that he must either abandon the young isdy alto gether or resort to strategy and deception. Being naturally astraighlfnrwardand hon est man, be greatly disliked to deceive even an unreasonable father.but he yielded to necessity and the imperious nature of his passion. Iu accordance witb a system of clandes tine interviews under cover of darkness, in the back yard, Mr. Walker met the dyer's daughter three weeks ago, at about nine o'clock in the evening. The latter had se cretly Issued from tha back door, and her lover was awaiting ner under the shadow of the projecting eaves of the wash-house. A large tub and a long plank happened to be conveniently at hand, and, placing the plank across the tub, the youthful pair sat down to sweet converse. The plank was a balf-inch one, and seemed to be sufficient ly strong to bear the weignt of two persons, with a large margin of safety. When, however, the weight of Mr. Walker and Miss Keiluer was concentrated on the pre cise con tor of the plank that Is to say, im mediately over the middle of the tub a contingency which the makerof the plank did not have in view, occurred. The plank first bent and then broke, and Mr. Walker, falling- backward, waa plunged, head and shoulders, in the contents of the tub. Witb great presence of mind he kept the young lady's head out of danger, but he could not prevent her from assuming a sitting position with her lap partly sub merged. The moment the unfortunate lovers af fected their relense. the lady fled into the houso and Mr. Walker climbed the fence, the charge from old Mr. KeJIner's shot-gun happily failing to hit him. He went home and as soon as be had lit the gas, he was horrified to find that bis faoe, hair, neck, and hands were dyed a deep and brilliant blue. When he realired the fact that he had fallen into a tub full of Mr. Kellner's "Indestructible Ultramarine lllue,"be Mil bark upon a chair, fueliug that he waa a ruined man. Of course, he tried every means to wash away the stain, but soap and hot water Were in vain. He remembered Mr. Kell ner's boast, that hisdyosoould not be wash ed out, and he gave up the attempt. He sought out faithful friend who was fa miliar with water-oolors, and Implored his aid. i The friend could give him no hope He did, Indeed, offor to cover Mr. Walker's face! with a film of transparent yellow, which would have the effect of changing his tint from blue to a deep and beautiful green, but this handsome offer was de clined. So, too, Mr. Walker refused to call on Mr. Kellner and ask him for some oheioioal which would remove the blue. To do lais would have been to implicate Miss Kelluer in an Indiscreet though innocent aot. , Mr- Walker preferred to go to a blue and lonely grave rather than to inour the slightest risk of Injuring the reputation of his auorcii one. Phvsicians are divided In opinion as to whelber Mr. Walker will fade In oourso of years. So far, his oolor is pre-eminently fast.' and neither water, tun-Hunt, nor sulphurous soul has the slightest effect up on It. Foi tunately, Mr. Kullner has never learned me truth, and Imagines that Mr. Walker has left town, driven away by re morse tor having blasphemed the tram bone.' The elorv it. of course, a verv ninl- auoholy one, but as it affords a clue to the possible origin of all contemporary blue men, it deserves the attention of ohemists and anthropologists . .. - ,, t Renovating Old Lands.

TRUNKS and TRAVELING BAGS ;HOESi yard manure stands at the head of the list; bnt its supply is necessarily limited. Aside from the unreliability of some com mercial fertilizers, their nse In Urge quan tities is too expensive for average farm ers. The cheapest method available to all is the practice of green manuring. I hare usually resorted to clover as the best crop to raise for this purpose. Of Iflte, howev er, clover growing has been j-ather uncer tain, leading me to investigate the results of other green crops for use in a similar way. Sly sucCess has been very gratifying in sowing corn, oats, buckwheat or lye, for plowing under, instead of clover. For this purpose I use one or the other of the crops, according to the time of the year, for sowing, and taking into the calcula tion the length of time the crop should oc cupy the laud. All these crops, howover, could be grown and plowed under within the time required for growing the one crop of clover. In this consists - the main ad vantage of their use over clover as a reno vating ornp, . Of the crops above mentioned I sow oorn or buckwheat for a summer growth, resorting to them only occasionally, as by reuson of the failure of some regular farm orop in its cour&e. llye or oats can often be sown in August or September, after the harvesting ot a regular crop, with ample time for growing a heavy crop for green manuring the laud before the latter is wanted for the next regular farm crop, r'or this purpose, immediately after bar vest, 1 take ull the stubble-ground that is not seeded to clover, cultivating it so as to sow rye or oats; the former if it is not to be plowed under until the following spring, the lattor if only a fall growth is desired. For lute sowing, oats will make a much heavier and quicker growth than any otiier grain, the cool, moist fall weath er appearing lo favor it. After harvesting any piece of early corn or potatoes, I re sow the ground again aa soon as possible, with some crop for green manuring. With my regular Held crop I often sow rye, at the last lime of cultivating the corn, the rye often growing so rauk after the corn is takon off, as to need fall pasturing to keep it down properly. Such seeding aa la recommended above will cost but a trills, since the waste of any stubble-lot is half enough to re-seed lt.i After potato digging, especially, the f round will need very little more tillage, n the case of the coru-neld, thero only re mains Die expense of teed and towing rye. In ail these operations the extra tillage re quired is more than repaid by dressing the laud of all weeds and thistles at a time ot the year when they will die readily. Again, the soil is put in a light and porous condi tion for receiving and being benefitted by the fall ruins. Finally, the growing uf any of these crops in the manner described more than repays the light attendant ex pense, though the preoccupation of t lie laud with a clean, luxuriant growth, in stead of permitting it to lie bare or oocu- fiied with some foul growth, which can on y be a damage to the - lands. 1 need not add that which will be admitted by all intelligent farmers the plowing under of a heavy yegilable growth from any of these orops will be ot great benefit lo the mndt thus treated.
