The meeting of the Fettw comity Grangers, Thursday, to listen to an ad dress of the Gnmd Master of the Order, was, notwithstanding the pres sure of farm work, a large gathering of the most intelligent farmers in the count. Nor were they at all disap pointed in the purposes of the meet ing. The -address was, in all respects. an admirable one. Mr. Jones, the orator, claimed to be a farmer of forty years standing, and of practical and not tbeorctica1 experience, flis re view of the purposes of the Order was excellent. It was a comprehensive statement, clearly and succinctly made, of the origin and aims of the Orange movement. It showed conclusively why the agriculturist should under take to release himself from the fetters which the trade monopolist, through a disastrous experience of many years, had succeeded in riveting around him ; and to seek in liberal commer cial enterprises the most effectual co adjutor the farmer could know. Mr. Jones gave particular attention to the plan of co-operation devised by the Grange. The successful inaugura tion of this "plan of dealing had saved .thousands of dollars to the working classes. It had done more, perhaps, to relieve the farmer from ex orbitant trade impositions than any other device that could be put on foot The Co-operative Store was the es pecial object of Mr. Jones praises. He looked upon it as an indispensable auxiliary to the producer in his great battle against combinations which fetter his industry and repress his energies. Theco-operative plan of trade, taken in conjunction with the adoption of the co operative system of international com mercial venture involving the essential requisites of cheap transportation and convenient markets, was the key which would eventually place the hus bandmen in a position to measurably influence and control the trade of the country at least so far as it related to the products of agriculture. The American Grange was now acting is harmony with the labor movement of Great Britain, and together they were working out a plan of international transportation, which, whatever else may be said of it, will assuredly secure to the farmer and producer an exempt ion from the grinding tolls now levied by the middleman and commission merchant on the one side and the rail road monopolist on the other. These were the salient features of a speech singularly felicitious in expression and thought Altogether, it was a splen did effort. cmops nr this county. ' By the close of the week, it the weather keeps fair, a large proportion of the wheat crop of this county will be harvested, and farmers will be able to take better care of their corn. It is hardly reasonable to suppose, how ever, that the brilliant anticipations heretofore indulged in concerning an extraordinary yield in wheat will be realized. The weather for the last few weeks has been especially unfavor able for growing crops of all kinds, and wheat has suffered with the rest. The recent storms have probably done more damage than at present is be lieved possible. In such weather the best crops suffer the most. Where the wheat is thick and the stand is good, the tendency to lodge is much freater than where the stalks are wide apart and the growth is thin. But the most serious inconvenience will be experienced in the harvest. The in cessant rains have rendered the soil soft and yielding, and machines are liable to. mire. In that case wheat will have to be cut by hand, and the harvest will extend over a period that will render it liable to all sorts of .weather. These, however, are diffi i cultk that may not be encountered, and everything may turn out better than anticipate. Before anything can be done to wards cleansing the corn of the rank growth of grass that naa taken pos- session of nearly everv field in this county, a week of continuous dry weather is indespensable. At present the corn fields are little better than a loplolly and plowing is entirely out of tLe question. The practice has obtained among the faraera of this county, of late years, of laying of their corn lands to be plowed only one way. Iu good aessons the plan works well and large yields nch larger indeed than the reverse ssethod would occasion is the resalL But in wet seasons the diffi culties which the rank growth of grass occasions are almost insurmountable. The corn is lees effectually drained, and the soil will reject the plow more frequently than aider the old rule ol preparing the land for the plow both ways. Near this city is a field o corn that will asKMint to nothisf from this cfocimshmce sloae. Under other conditions it would have made a splen dadefsfw The resorts which reach the Bazoo regarding oats, are of the most en couraging character.

An Incident of the Convention of Educators How a Yonnf Man Found an Old Sweetheart. The State Teaclier's Convention of the Stale met in this city day before yesterday, and naturally brought to us ever so many pretty girls, who are engaged in teaching the rural idea how to shoot. Among them is a bright-eyed, jolly looking girl from a neighboring county, who has blossomed within the last two years, mto a veritable venus in beauty and grace, and who has, as all pretty girls should have, A 1JTTJ.K UOMAXCK connected with her career. Before she got to be a teacher, and when blooming in the innicence of her young girlhood on a farm, she met and was captivated by a merchant's clerk. The course of true love didn't run smooth, and two years ago the young man left his rural home and came to Sedalia to seek hi fortune, leaving his charmer to air her rustic graces on the country swains, and careless of who might WIS TUE PRIZE. But the young lady was of a dilerent mind. She determined to fit herself for a teacher, ami throw love to the winds. She succeed ed in her aims, and appeared in theConven tion not only accomplished in her proles- sion, but, uy lar iue raosi oeauiuui laoy among those pquant and charming lasses. Her old lover heard of and sought her out. He found not the sly country girl, but a beautiful and stately lady fashionable in dress, charming in manners and fascinating to a degree that stirred into a lame THE OLD LOVE which, perhaps, had not entirely died oat in hi heart. Be that aa it may, he renewed his sail with all the eloquence be could maa ter and all the eagerness of passion But, alas ! The day of his conquest had gone by a polite refusal U all that he has for a souvernt of the jewel he once threw away, but which is now bevond his reach. So wacs the world away.

Imleetl. so fa nuiiw in thw Sedalia lyl, and s letuark.i ble have been the verification of her pre dictions, in love affairs especially, that she ha succeeded in establishing quite a lucra tive Imsinew, and the old and the young it delightedly under the spell of her enchant menu. But of late the lady ha been reap ing an unii"iiallv golden harvest. One of her customer is AX OLI MAN IS UAT, fa sort of rural millionaire, roba't in iinre ml plethoric in purse, who has found that unlimited wealth ami the allurements of society are no compensations for a lonely heart. Of vigonm fr me not to say gi gantic mould hi temperament is earnest and hi nature aggressive. Having tasted the sweets of domestic bliss, ami retaining lively recollections of that enchanting pe riod of hi youth when he sang sonnets to hi lady' eyebrow, it not gtraiige that his old heart has burst through the restraint ol widowerliood and laid its treasures at the feet of SWEET SIXTKEX. Nor is it a bit remarkable that this widower of seventy, with hi robust frame and un tamed passions, has turned aside from the dusty highway of hi declining life, and ha loitered happy hours away in an hum ble bower where life Is all enchantment and poverty itself u clad in beauty. Hut un fortunately the old man is surroumled by difficulties. He hxs grown children who do not take kindly to the thought of his . . if ..: . , . 1 ' . , ceptihle of such an easy division now that they refuse to entertain the thought of it be ing complicated with the addition of future heirs. But this is bo! the only embarrass ment. The object of thu affection is the only daughter of a widowed mother. They have never kuown a superfluity of wealth, and the idea of marrying her daughter to a rich old husband who xav die sooa ha quite taken possession of the widow's mind. But the young lady herself has other view in life. There is a young bank clerk far more to her mind. If he's not quite so rich a her ancient suitor he has a prettier way of saying charming things hi face is smoother am hi kisses are fresher, and his low-spoken words have a sweeter cadence and a tenderer thril I. The bank clerk in the young lady's eyes haa the t,;n hiul nf :n - v.-j .i the coarse of his true love refused to run smooth, it occurred to the old man that a visit to TnC FORTL'XK TCM.ra would not I out of place. And so he laid his case before her. By her diiectioa he tried the effect of a charm, which he was requested to place at the window-sill nf hi sweetheart at the witching hour of 12 o'clock at night. In order to do this he had to reach a second story window, and, to help him forward in hi undertaking, he took along with him A SHORT UPDKK. With the aid of this be had no trouble in reaching the window and depositing; hi charm. Bat he did have trouble in getting back to the ground again. Unfortunately for the old man, a new factor had appeared on the scene THR WIDOW' BfLL-notJ. He had quietly taken up his position at the foot of that ladder with aa intention which even aa old man in love could not fail to appreciate. Impatient for his prey, he gave expression to his indignation in deep-monthed hay that sounded as if they would rend hi throat. The capers which that bull-dog cat, as he danced around in impatient fury, fairly chilled the old man's blood. To add to the terror of his situa tion the ladder was frail, and threatened every moment to give way with the unac customed weight. Think of two hundred and fifty pounds ot love hinged upon a frail reed-like ladder, with an angry bull-dog at the foot of it ! What if the inmates of the house should become aroused ami find him perched underneath that window ! To say that the predicament was one that the old man despised, is putting it mildly. HB TRIED COAXINO ; he chirruped to the infuriated animal ; call ed him a pretty dog ; he ventured to assure Carlo that he was a nice, good fellow ; but in spite of all these tender epithets that ob stinate dog refased to be conciliated, and the reed-like ladtkr had begun to bend aad creak ominously. As if to increase the un pleasantness of the situation, the sash of the window apoa which he had recently disposed the charm was raised 'gently, and A FAia FACS looked oat apaa the scene. "Who's there?" inquired a soft voice, accented with the least thrill of terror. " It's me ! it's me!" cried the robust suit- or: "can oa ints aor: jorptty-s saae,caii him off!" For terror and the novelty of his situation had begun to tell oa the old an's nerves.

The horrible purpose of Im visit was only too evident. In ihe interval of that awful bul! dog chorus the old man heard this explanation, ami hi heart sunk within him.

" Monster T yelled the widow. " Bite htm. Carlo ! tear him all to pieces!" chimed in the girl. And the way that frantic bull-slog an swered these appeal was sickening for that old man to see. The ladder hail bent with the old man's weight until he was almost within reach of the bull-dog's remoreIeB jaw. He lifted up hi voice in an agony of ex planation, but his words were drowned in the widow's frantic upbraiding. At last, in utter despair, he crawled up the ladder and forced his way into the room amid a chorus of shriek that woald have rivaled pandemonium turned loose. The women took refuge in the corner, one grasping a chair and the other with a broom handle reared aloft, and evincing in their attitude a determination to die in defense of some thing which that bedeviled old rooster never had any intention of assailing. j How he succeeded in calming the terror of the alarmed and excited females, it is not the intention of the writer to relate. Suffice it to Bay he succeeded in hi expla nation at last, and an hcur afterwards he emerged from that house amid the wreck and ruin of hi hopes and the frantic laugh ter of the recently terrified ladies.

Vr fiico -I don't know but I shall bring down up on my head the pious wrath of the honor able gentlemen who compose that very im portant body known as the town council, but when I walked out in the little 7xt enclosure that I call my front yard from mere courtesy, mind you this a. hi., and saw the imprint of the classic hoofs of some enterprising tourist of the bovine species on a bed of verbenas that I have tended with jealous care for the past four weeks, I'm free to confess that if the vials of wrath so often referred to in Revelation had been confided to my enre, I should have poured out trie last drop, and shook the empty bottles over the heads of this same town council. It is a burning shame that thing of this sort are allowed to transpire in a city like Sedalia; and the fact that thia state of affairs really exists, is a blot upon the management of the gentlemen who compose the board of your town officers. Any hour in the day one can see patroliag, not only the streets but the sidewalks, staid and frisky cow ; mother pigs, followed by a host of squealing progeny; turkeys, geese, etc., id infinitum. . In one of our enterprising dailies I saw not twenty-four hoars ago a trite notice of a dog who was taking; his bread aad water in a Jog pound. Noble magnanimity! sublime forethought! to thus relieve the city of a dog nuisance. Why wouldn't it be a good idea to have a pound for cattle aad pigs? Several day ago I saw in another paper the statement that the city finances were in an embarrassed condition. Ha, ha! Where was the money applied, if there ever was any money in the treasury? Not in im proving the streets, for the statement was made before Third street was half macada mised; and more money has been expended or. that street, so far, this year, than all the rest of the streets in the city. Yoar ex chequer must be in miserable shape if your resources are so soon exhausted. The streets aad alleys of this city are in a shameful condition, if we except Broadway and a portion of Indiana street; and the late hot weather and the copious rain storm will, if so ate means are not adopted to rid the city of various heap of rubbish that now adorn it, generate diseases that cannot be removed with muscle and a cart.
