Tie Lamoille PalMiM Company, Editors and Proprietors. MORRISVILLE AND HYDE PARK, SEPTEMBER 30th, 1886. Mr. Samuel S. Cos, the United States Minister to Turkey, writes to a friend that he will return home in time to be & candidate for Congress. Mr. Parnell intends to make a spe cial appeal to Irishmen in America to assist tenants evicted during the com ing winter to hold out against the landlords. Indications point to the re-election of C. W. Brownell and W. W. Stick ney as clerks of the Senate and House. Both are men of experience and ability and probably no better selections can be made. Senator Harrison is making a char acteristically vigorous campaign in In diana, and is meeting with the most enthusiastic receptions. He is a fine tvDG of the more cultured class of ml m Western statesmen. The canvass in Iowa is developing the fact that Cleveland's pension ve toes are driving the Democratic ex soldiers into the Republican ranks again, from which some of them have strayed for a few years past. Neal Dow was the authority for the statement that St. John received $50 per speech while in Maine. The sincere Prohibitionists and temper ance men of Maine refused to follow this insincere and mercenary leader. Mr. Parnell's Land Bill tor Ireland was defeated in the British House of Commons by a vote of 297 to 202. Lord Salisbury and Lord Bandolph Churchill have assumed a heavy re sponsibility in refusing to stop evic tions in Ireland this winter, and Mr. Parnell has come out of the fight with credit and increased reputation. Gen. E. S. Bragg, of Wisconsin, was the delegate at Chicago who loved Cleveland "because of the enemies he had made." And now Gen. Bragg has found out that the people of his district don't admire him for the same reason, and he has been refused a re-nomination to Congress. Possi bly Mr. Cleveland will take pity on the fellow and provide him with an office. The remarkable gubernatorial can vass in Tennessee between the Tay lor brothers one the Democrat and the other the Republican candidate continues to be the seven days' won der of the political world. No simi lar exhibition, combining intense po litical antagonism with the very best of personal feeling and regard, has ever been witnessed on the American stump before. Professor Wiggins seems to have a larse line of leaser and larger earth quakes on hand, together with a va riety of cyclones and hurricanes. He announces that he will distribute them on the 29th of this month. Charles ton is' to have her full share of the shakes, and the rest are to start on their wild career under the Atlantic and bring up in Southern Europe. Wiggins is undoubtedly a crank. The resolutions adopted at the An ti-Saloon Convention in Chicago, which we published last week, ought to be satisfactory to the most exact ing temperance man. Faithfully sup ported, they will accomplish more for the temperance cause than can possi bly be attained In any other way. There is something practical in this movement, which is in striking con trast to the third party delusion un der the leadership of St. John. Congressman Morrison, the free trader, may be retired after the 4th of March next. While he had no trouble in securing a renomination from the Democrats in his district, he is going to encounter serious opposi tioo in his canvass this falL Not that there is any defection in the ranks of his own party, but the candidate the Republicans have pitted against him is said to be a most formidable worker and powerful speaker. Hon Jehu Baker is his opponent, and he proposes to bring prominently to the front the tariff. John Wannamaker of Philadelphia. who has just returned from a tour in Eurooe lastinsr several months, savs " Everywhere I found that great inter est was felt about America, and people were constantly asking about the possi bility or success it tney came nere, This is especialy true among farmers who are very much discouraged. Ameri can products are finding their way to every nook and corner of the continent of Europe. I saw a load of American straw hauled through the streets of Zu rich, and I was told that the price was eighty-five cents per hundred pounds, which is the same price I have often paid here. From what is said abroad about America I am satisfied that there are others.besides ourselves who believe that America is the greatest country in the world." John Brown's Grave. The head stone of the grave of John Brown at Elba has been made a source of income to the thrifty owners of the farm on which it stands, by an ingenious device Thev have covered it with a wooden Trmx. which is firmly secured with a pad lock, and when visitors ask about it the nlea ia made that it became necessary to protect it because of the vandalism of Bignt-Beers wuo cnippeu uu pieces a relics. Of course, the visitors ask the favor of seeing the stone, and then after much reluctance is shown, a hunt for the key ensues, which proves to be a troublesome task. Then a little girl conducts the visitors to the grave and unlocks the cover. Of course, after giving so much trouble, the visitor offers the girl remuneration, which is always accepted. The surviving members of the old anti-slavery society at New York are taking steps to induce the proprietors of the land to show the gravestone without a fee. Copies Free. The publishers of the American Agriculturist will for ward a copy free to every person who has been a subscriber to the Ameri can Agriculturist, but ia not now one (provided they send their name on a postal card,) to the end that they may see the great improvements that have been made in this periodical. The Revival of Trade. That the business interests of this countiy have awakened from their long sleep is a fact beyond question. The iron traffic is unusually brisk ; the trade in coal is so large, that prices have been advanced ; the transactions in dry goods are larger than for many months; collections are prompt and business men ire hopeful. Less ap prehension of an extreme stringency in the rates for money is now enter tained, although perhaps an unusually large amount will be required to move fh ornna. Thfi wheat vield of this country promises to be 440,000,000 bushels, and the corn crop, i,duu,wu,- 000 bushels ; the latter showing a de . ... i t r crease, compared wun last year, ui 400,000,000 bushels. The value of our exports of bread stuffs in August was nearly double that in the same month last year ; the cotton escorts were slightly larger than last year, and the shipments of petroleum were valued at fcauu,uw less than in August of last year, but for the eight months ended August 31st the decrease was only $520,000. The most favorable feature of our export trade is the marked increase in the shipments of wheat. The total net earnings of the lead ins: railroads of the country from Jan uary 1st to September 1st show an in crease, compared with the same time last year, of $13,995,345, and of this gain $3,749,240 was made m August Many of the railroad companies are complaining of a lack of cars to draw the freight. There is a notable in crease in the construction of railroads in this country. Sixty thousand tons of steel rails, it is stated, have been bought in England for use in the United States, and an inquiry, it is further averred, has been made for 50,000 tons more. It is to be re gretted that our railroad companies feel obliged to buy tne raus m x.uS land, and it is hoped that the new railroads which are being construcieu arc. onenins ud new fields for human enterprise, rather tWan paralleling old roads, and thus giving lurtner counte nance to the pooling system, which is one of the great evils of the commer cial times, and which is, of course, a direct outgrowth of the over-construction of railways in this country. Ore of the most hopeful features ot the business situation is the compara tive absence of speculation. Stocks have advanced in price, but this is be cause of the increasing earnings of railroads, and because there is no de termined effort to depress the market by any large speculation. Since the death of Charles F. Woerishoffer, the bear" party has been practically without a leader. Certainly no one of equal ability and daring has yet sought to reduce the price ot our rail way securities ; the manipulation of the money market, noticeable at times, with the view of affecting stocks, has lasted but a short time, and ultimately really helped the stock market. Mr. Philip JJ. Armour, ol Chicago, is engaged in a large specu lation in pork, and some foreign houses here have undertaken to ma terially advance the price of coffee ; but, as a rule, there is little or no speculation, and business interests are all the stronger without it. Frank Leslie's Weekly. The Anti-Saloon Movement. The democratic and mugwump press, by their emphatic insistance that the re cent anti-saloon Republican conference at Chicago was an utter failure, and that it will prove to be utterly destitute of influence, unconsciously pay it the hiehest possible tribute. .Never was the wish more conclusively and evidently father to the thought. There were snm siimificant features of this confer ence which it is worth while to note. It w:is enmrtosed of upwards of 300 dele gates, representing eighteen states and one of the territories.

The Baptist State Convention. The Vermont Baptist state convention held its annual session at Saxton's River on the 23d and 23d insts., with Rev. W N. Wilbur moderator. Ihe exercises opened the first day with an annual ser mon by Rev. F. J. Corey on the " Bible and Inspired Books." The reports of the treasurer and board of trustees show 16 churches aided to the amount of $2300. All bills of the past year are Eaid, also an old debt of $1700. and a alance is left in the treasury. Prof. 11. M. Willard, principal of the Ver mont academy, addressed the conven tion on the needs of that institution A board of managers consisting of 21 persons was chosen, who organized by electing lion. J. J. Estey chairman, new, V. II. Archibald secretary, Deacon D. W. White treasurer. The evening was devoted to home and foreign missions, addresses being made by Drs. YV. S. Mc Kenzie and A. P. Mason. On Thursday the convention opened with a prayer meeting, followed by a public meeting ot the board ol managers. The wom an's Missionary Society held its annual meeting in the Congregational church, presided over by its president, Mrs. E Mason of Montpelier. Addresses were made by Miss Alice Merriam and Mrs. Gales or lioston, and Mrs. Stetson, one of the early missionaries to Bur man The Vermont Baptist historical society's meeting was held iu the afternoon. 1 he annual business convention appro priated $2425 to assist needy churches in the state. It was voted to hold the next annual meeting at Factory Point. "'1161 sermon to be preached by Rev. C. Mar tin of Bennington. Frank Leslie's Sunday Magazine for October.

Woodward, The Vermont Asylum The biennial report of the officers of the Vermont Asylum for the In sane, which has been issued ready for distribution during the past week, possesses more than usual interest from the fact that this report com pletes the record of the asylum for the first half century of its existence. The board of trustees, in opening their report, speak of the end of this first fifty years of work, and modest ly say of it that "Measured by its results in recoveries and the benefits conferred upon its six thousand patients as attested by statis tics, we have reasonable cause for satis faction. In respect to its financial histo ry, we believe it stands alone, and that its record is signally remarkable in that it has not only always been self-sustaining, but principally self-creative." The period closes with 450 patients a larger number than usual in re cent years, though the average for the two years has not been greater. The number of patients supported by private means, by the State, and by towns is 129, 132 and 189, respec tively. There is a steady increase among the inmates of those who are residents of this State. At the close of the biennial term in 1880, 329 of the 447 inmates were Vermont resi dents ; in 1882 the number was 356 out of 441 ; in 1884 it was 363 out of 437, and now it is 380 out of 450. The trustees believe that the general condition and professional manage ment of the institution are such that they may be spoken of with full con fidence. They refer to the very per fect svBtem of sewerage, which was completed last year, and to other im provements which have been accom plished or re in contemplation. Fi nally The trustees feel that the work of 50 years, represented by the present estab lishment as now completed and modern ized, is a creditable monument to those who have had in charge tha legacy of the founder and the development of her cher ished wishes. Their plans lor the tuture embrace further efforts at improvement, and other departures in accordance with the ideas and demands of the times, to the full extent of the means they may have for the promotion of the chartered objects of the institution." The report of Dr. Draper, the su perintendent, opens with a tabulated statement of the results of the work: of the last two years, and this is fol lowed by a statement regarding some individual cases, with the causes that seem to have led to insanity in pa tients admitted to treatment during his term. Thirty-one different caus es were found to have been instru mental, the element of heredity en tering into the largest numoer oi cases, and nersonal vices, inclusive of intemperance and other dissipations, operating most prominently in tne exciting causes. Occupation seems to have had little effect as a determin ing cause, "but in a few instances overwork and irregular sleep seem to have contributed to the production of nervous and mental disorder, either by interfering with regular hours for rest, or alternating dav and night labor, in which neither the natural order of rest is observed nor the arti ficial habit of sleep acquired." A very interesting and valuable feature of Dr. Draper s report 13 a table which he presents, showing the results of the half century in detail vear bv vear. This table shows that in the fifty years from 1837 to 1886, inclusive, a total of 6076 patients have been admitted to the asylum An analysis of these statistics shows that, of all the cases received, out of every one hundred, 39 have recovered 28 have not recovered, 25 have died, and 9 remain under care. his rec- nrd is one which will compare favor ably with that of any similar institu tion in this country, and the officers of the Vermont asylum may well feel pride and satisfaction in it. The part of Dr. Draper's report which follows these statistics, on the liability to insanity, the tempera ments which are most likely to be come its victims, and the accelerating or restrain'ng causes, we find to be of so much general interest and so full of solid meat, that an abstract will not present it as it deserves, atd we therefore reserve it for publication in full in a future issue. The closing portion of the repo t speaks briefly of the new park on the hillside, which is in steady course of improvement, of the summer retreat, of the new plan of "camping out" parties of male pa tients, which has proved a great suc cess, with decided benefit in individ ual cases, and of the indoor life with its round of weekly entertainments and recreations during the winter sea son. Accompanying the report of the officers of the asylum is that of the State Supervisors of the Insane. The report of these officials discusses in detail the sanitary condition of the asjlum, and the general supervision and treatment of the patients, with their life outdoor. On all these points the supervisors seem to find nothing to condemn and much to approve and warmly commend. The sanitary con dition of the institution, its heating and ventilation and the culinary ar rangements they think could hardly be improved. They are especially rimpressed with the emphasis which we officers of the asylum place on the out-door life of the patients as seen at the Summer Retreat, at Camp Comfort, and in the daily exercise on the home grounds and in the park. The patients appreciate the change, enjoy the open air, and "the require ment of good behavior which is a req uisite to future liberties, is sufficient to Insure obedience to wholesome reg ulations." It is a noteworthy fact that the inmates who are often active in their delusions in the asylum wards are able to control their hallucina tions while in the enjoyment of these out-door advantages, and return to their wards invigorated and improved. "The board refer to these matters thus particularly, because to tiiis asylum be longs the credit of having inaugurated this specific system of out-door exercise and " recreation for the inmates. Other asylums have followed the lead thus giv en to some extent. But none of them have the facilities for its almost unlimit ed extension which are found in the broad and diversilied acres in one body which are attached to the asylum." The provisions for indoor exercise and recreation in the fall and winter are no less complete. The verandas, the court-yards, the gymnasium, the billiard room, the dancing parties, the dramatic exercises and lectures in the chapel, afford a pleasing varietv of exercise and entertainment, which the inmates seem to enjoy and appreci ate." The treatment of the patients is in every respect humane, and in ac cordance with the most modern scien lific methods. During the past biennial term the supervisors have looked after the wel fare and proper treatment of those patients who have been discharged as "incurable" and "not dangerous," to make room in the asylum for others, and they have made an effort, with only partial success, to find out how many insane there arj in the State out of the asylum. Enough has been learned, however, to show that the number ia large. Some are confined in rooms by themselves under more restraint than is found necessary in the asylum ; some are inoffensive and kept in poor-houses ; one or two indi vidual cases were learned of where the unfortunate victims are kept in a re volting condition as to their surround ings, but for the most part they are well provided for. The most important and significant part of the supervisors' report is that in which they treat of the "criminal and convict insane," meaning by this term those inmates who have been sent to the asvlum from the State Prison, or those who committed some crime after they became insane, which led to their committal to the asylum. The supervisors have evidently made a careful study ot this subject, and we are glad to see that their investi gations have led them to the only le gitimate and proper conclusion that this class of inmates should be re moved from the asylum proper and cared for by the State in connection with one of the prisons. These in mates are in a sense outcasts from the world ; most of them are danger ous in their tendencies, and their lib eration under any circumstances would not be tolerated. I hey are all incur ables, and the most that can be done for them is to provide for their secure isolation under kind and humane treatment. Willi attendants sufficient to insure their obedience to all restraints required ; proper care when sick; the necessary food for tne proper sustenance ui wo body ; such exercise as their necessary restraint shall admit ; and when this is accomplished all that can be done for this class ot insane persons in u leuieuim way is clone. They are a class separated entirely from all associations witn any body but themselves; their connection with an insane asylum as forming a part of Its inmates is an incongruity; they are a kind of barnacle upon the asylum, com pelling the association oi a prison anu prisoners with surroundings designed to be as far as possible removed from that idea; of crimnals and convicts in an in stitution devoted to tne care anu treat ment of the innocent and insane from civil life. They increase the ratio ot in curables, or chronic insane, and injure the reputation of the institution for the cure ot its inmates. They occupy space whieh is srreatlv needed tor those who have a more promising prospect in the future tor restoration, ah tuat possi bly can be accomplished in their care aud treatment can just as well be done away from the asylum and with little, if any, increase of expense to the State. It costs the State now nearly $4000 per annum to support her criminal and convict insane. It would cost no more to maintain them, and probably less, at either of the penal institutions from which they are sent." A very essential point which would be gained by the removal of these in mates would be to leave vacant an ad ditional ward in the asylum where a legitimate class of patients could be treated, and by means of the in creased room thus secured the neces sity for an independent State asylum would be obviated for many years to come. Believing that this subject will com mand the attention of the legislature at its coming session the supervisors have visited the House of Correction at Rutland, and the State Prison at Windsor to obtain information which may help to wise conclusion iu the selection of place for the care of these unfortunate wards of the State. he natural plan would be to erect a build ing for their accommodation in con nection with the State Prison at Windsor, but the prison uses all the room at its command and there is no suitable place to erect an additional building there. At Rutland, on the contrary, there is ample room to erect, such a building in connection with the House of Correction. The cost would not exceed $10,000 and the su nervisors are clearly of the opinion that here the State should at once ar range to take care of its convict and criminal insane. Following their detailed treatment of thi3 important subject the super visors present statistical facts relat ing to the asylum for the past two years, ana tuese are iouoweu wru summary ot general observations on the philanthropic, humane ana em- cient work which the asylum is doing in its treatment of the insane people committed to its charge. Their judg ment is in every respect favorable to the institution, and none who have taken pains to acquaint themselves with the present management oi me Vermont asylum will question the jus- their conclusion that, at the close of its first half century our home institution holds a place "equal, if not superior, in all its departments to similar institutions in this or any other country." Brattleboro Phasnix Crand Army Notes. The annual encampment of the Ver mont denartment, G. A. R., will be held at St. Albans January 19 and 20 1887. There are 561,800 pensioners now on the rolls, and the government has paid on that account nearly fcl,000, 000,000 since the close oi tue war. Five of the trustees of the Soldiers' Home in Vermont will be members of the next legislature two in the senate and three in the house of representa lives. Commander-in-chief Fairchild has issued a circular calling on the mem hers of the G. A. R., to contribute to the relief of the Charleston, S. C. sufferers. Money should be trans mitted to department headquarters in each state. General order No. 2, National head quarters, says : " As directed by the National encampment at Portland, the following corps badges, recognized on the official chart of the war depart ment, have been added to the mem bership badge of the Grand Army Sheridan's cavalry, Wilson's cavalry and Hancock s veteran corps. Also device of camp kettle and fire on re verse side of eagle. This badge has been patented for the use and protec tion of the G. A. R. The action of the commander-in-chief in this matter was unanimously approved by the Na tional encampment at San J? rancisco. Pensions have recently been granted to Vermonters as follows : Solomon A. Cross, deceased (payable to Adc line E. Cross, East Bethel), $4 month and $480 arrears ; Charle Jones, Barre, $2 a month and $4G ar rears ; Russell Wheelock, East Calais $i a month and 210 arrears ; Arte mas W. Wilder, deceased, $24 a month and $272 arrears (payable to his wid ow, Sarah P. Wilder, Northfield) Charles W. Ransom, Hardwick, an increase from $4 to $6 a month ; John A. Ivelton, Worces'er, an increase from $4 to $6 a month ; Jason Rhodes Townshend, $12 a month and $1800 arrears. According to advices from China and Japan the cholera which has raged in parts of those countries during the past summer has been unusually fatal Out of 59,000 cases in Japan, 37,000 resulted fatally. In Seoul, the capi tal of Lorea, the iatal cases for Jul this year were 38,000, out of a popu lation of 250,000. In the cholera affected provinces of China the pro portion of deaths was equally great. At last accounts the epidemic was abating. STATE ITEMS. The annual meeting of the Vermont Branch of the Woman's Board of Missions will be held at Middlebury, Oct. 27. J. II. Searle3 has decided to re build his veneer mill near Newport, and has purchased a spot of Mrs. Benjamin at the south end of the Passumpsic bridge near Pine hill. The question of the removal of the county shire of Orange will be the basis of a lively contest in the legisla ture this fall. The voters who favor its removal from Chelsea are divided in preference as to Bradford and West Randolph, but have finally united on asking the establishment of two half shires, one at each town. It is thought tha the friends of removal are in the majority and will carry the day. The Vermont State Spiritualist As sociation will hold its next annual convention in Friend's Church, Dan by, October 8, 9 and 10, commencing at 10.30 a. m., of the first day. The speakers are Mrs, Fannie Davis Smith, of Brandon. Mrs. Emma L. Paul, of Morrisville, Mrs. Abbie W. Crossett, of Duxbury, Mrs. Lizzie S. Manchester, of West Randolph, Mrs. Sarah A.

Temperance Notes. Conducted by the W. C. T. TJ. Dr. Dio Lewis, whose death occur red recently, will be known in history as the originator of the Woman's Crusade of 1873, out of which grew the W. C. T. U., which to-day ha3 a membership of 200,000. The prohibitory law of Rhode sland went into effect July 1st, and the arrests for that month were less than one-half what they were the same month in a number of preced- ng years. Mr. William Green, President of the IJelp-one-anolher Temperance So ciety, in England, has destroyed the contents of his wine-cellar, valued at $3,000. A "temperance regiment" of 1200 men is being enrolled in New York City upon a purely military basis, with total abstinence as a necessary qualification. C. R. Brayton, Esq., chief of the State police of Rhode Island, has en tered heartily upon his duties of en forcement ot the Prohibitory law in that State, and " prohibition prohibits' since the 1st of July. The working classes pay at least 500,000,000 a year for drink, and then complain of "hard times, and strike" for more money to go to the saloon keepers. The following advice of the Railway Age is as good for other workingmen as for railway employes: "We urge all railway em ployes in the land to strike against rum. Whiskey is an infinitely great er evil to them than long hours o poor pay. Vastly more money i squandered in strong drink than any advance in wages can onset. Intern. iterance, not capital, is the great op- lrcssor of labor. Let the Knights ot Labor, and all other labor organiza tions, inaugurate a determined strike against strong drink, and the great est evil of the age and ot the world mav be overthrown. Danger of the First Drink. You are thinking like silly idiots when you say there is no danger in the cup. J know from the blood of five genera tions of cider drinking ancestors in my veins the danger there is in this thing. There is not a scent of liquor that is not pleasant to me, that would not be a precious drop on my tongue Look at me. Do I look like a man easy to be overcome by temptation Do j-oii know my life? Go back and learn it, and see what I suffered, and yet I say to you, with this background of evidence I declare to you, as value my manhood and my standing and my soul, I would not dare to drink for three weeks a glass of liquor a day. That chasm yawns at your feet, at my feet. Those who say there is no danger in the first glass of liquor do not recognize the perils of hereditary weakness. W. II. II. Murray Save the Children. Fort' years ago in Edwards County, 111., an old Cumberland Presbyterian minister went into every school district in that county and taught the boys and girls temperance, and pledged them to total abstinence and for prohibition. Ed wards County at that time was a great drinking place, and its case seemed almost a hopeless one. But this hum ble and faithful soul saw a work to be done and he did it, though he was doubtless called: fool, fanatic and crank. Ten years went by and those children he taught and pledged were grown up, and lo ! behold ! It was a temperance armv that said to the saloon " Go ! " and go it had to, and for nearly thirty years that county has been rid of that abominable besom of destruction. Edwards county has been blessed ; her taxes are light, he nauners are few. She has sent but 1 4 one man to the penitentiary in twenty five j ears, and he got liquor in another county that caused him to commit the crime. Dear friends, do you go to work with the children, if you can see no other work to do, and, as in Ed wards County so in Effingham County the children shall drive the saloon out Drunkards we can seldom reform, but we can save the children and stop the making of drunkards out of them, and in a few years we shall find them on best soldiers in the warfare for temper ance, for God and home and N ativ Land. So to work, to work at once Let no precious lime be wasted. Pioneer. Scientists aie astonished at the re markable phenomena of nature which have rendered this year in some re spects unique. In one portion o British India 600 inches of rain hav fallen in the last twelve months, while an agricultural region in Texas of 150,000 square miles has had scarcely one-eighth of an inch in over a year. Sudden and startling changes in bar onietic pressure and in temperature, are reported, both in Europe and America. An earthquake, the like of which the country has not known since history first began its records here, has brought destruction and de spair to a portion of our people. And it was snowing the other day in Mon tana. Altogether A. D. 188G will be remembered for other strange freaks than the appearance of the sea ser pent. .

The sudden and unexpected deatli of Mrs. Dr. Briggs Sept. 7, at Oxford, Neb., lias brought sadness to many hearts in this community, and also into that where she had lived less than a year, and such a sad and eventful year to herself and family. Only live months before, Fred die, the only son, was taken suddenly away, leaving them crushed by the blow. But they still had each other and thu precious daughter, and each tried to bear up bravely for the other's sake. Espec ially did the little daughter, thoughtful and womanly beyond her years, try to control her own grief and comfort her stricken parents. That the mother tried to bear it with a spirit of Christian resig- atiou will be seen by the following ex- i tract from a letter received by the writer j few weeks alter Freddie s death : "God ' grant the lime Is not far distant when the j weet assurance ot ins joy in the King dom will be first iu our thoughts. Now, ur lonliuess, tue tearing assunuer ot the weetest earthly ties aud the blasting of fond hopes is upon us with such crushing force that we realize more our own loss than we do the great gam of our loved and loving Freddie. You write of the precious promises of the Bible. My ; friend, if ic were not for that holy book aud its promises to the afflicted, our jour-j ney here would indeed De a long dark one for the remainder of our days. Al though I have not reached that perfect state of faith and suDtnission to ins win that I could wish, still I hope to be for given all my human weakness, and look tor a tune when the trials and cares oi this life are ended, that I shall hear my Father say, 'It is well with thee and thine; enter into the bliss ot reunion with your loved and lose, " to wmcn sue added this quotation : Oh, forgive me dear savior on iicaveirs Drigm shore, Should I still in mv child find a separate joy : When I lie in the light of Thy face evermore, May 1 think Heaven urigucer Decauso oi my boy." For her, earthlv cares and sorrows ended soon, but they are intensihed to the friends she has left, and doubly so to the two lonely hearts left in her own home. The same loving and wise Father who sustained her, can alone sustain and comfort them. May they find refuge in His shclteriur arms. Dr. Melbourne S. Briggs and Edith M. Blair were united iu marriage August 27, 1873. Three chil dren were born to them: Wilma, Meine and Freddie. Mellie died suddenly of cholera-infantuiu in September, 1S78. at the age of 15 months. Mrs. Briggs was a woman with many noble qualities of mind and heart, aud was a most devoted fe and mother. She was well calculat ed to be a leader in social life, but found the greatest pleasure in the quiet of her own home. She never had good health until the last two years of her life, when she has seemed very well, though not strong to endure, and grief killed her. inducing physical ills. She had been ail ing for a few days, but was not consid ered seriously ill. But in her husband's absence to visit a patient a latal symptom revealed itself, which she well under stood. She told her niece, who was with her, that she should not live; that she only cared for the sake of her family ; made some bequests to friends and calm ly awaited. When the doctor came home he was greatly alarmed at the change, sent for an eminent physician, and every thing that human love ami skill could do, was done to save her. But all in vain. He finds himself to-day a grief stricken man, with sec Dingly no hope or wish to live, save to comtorc and care for ins motherless child, who clings to him so silently and sadlv for help. Since going to Oxford she joined the w. u. 1'. u ., which was organized some months after her arrival. She had a band of juvenile temperance workers under her charge, and met with them weeklv, until after Freddie's sickness and death, when she could not bring herself to go on with the work for some time, but had taken it up again and got up a picnic, wmcn came off duly, but found her too ill to be pres ent. She had made many friends in her new home and will be greatly missed and deeply mourned by the community in whose welfare she took such an active interest. She was left motherless when she was less than rive years of age, and her father died when she was but four teen, and her oldest sister in February, 1372, so she well knew what grief, loss ind loneliness mean, but lias boeu very hapnv in her married home. Many hearts outside her own family and relatives are saddened by her death. It is less than a year since the family of four lett her na tive town for a home in the far West. Two have been taken and the two left have the heartfelt sympathy of tlie many friends they so recently left iu their for mer home. Mrs. Briggs was a sister of N. B. Blair and Mrs. E. If. Montague of this place, also of Mrs. G. E. Melvin of Cambridge, and Mrs. D. II. Roberts of Kansas. For the nresent she rests beside her child in Oxtord, but both are to be laid beside little Mellie in the cemetery here when cold weather comes. Rotation of Crops. A great deal may be said upon the subject of the ro tation of ctods. as it is one of consider able importance to the planter who de- sues to Keep his lanos always iu a piu riiip.tive statfi. It is. however, not neces sary to make any very extended remarks here a few brief hints or suggestions will su nice. The rotation tor the bouth- ern States must necessarily be different from that of the Northern btates, or tne States where cotton does not grow. If the soil be entirely new. i. e., just clear ed of the forest, let the first crop be corn; the second may be potatoes or cotton; the tniru, wneac, oats, lyo, ui barlev; the fourth, stocK peas or ciover; the fifth, rest; then corn again, etc. Tf thu soil be old. worn land, then begin with stock peas, sown broadcast, or oats and clover sown together, or rye sown very thick, in either case, turn mirier the ctod. or permit it to die down on the surface. The second year, plant cotton, using commercial fertilizers up r.n if. Thfi third vear sow oats, follow ed soon after these are harvested with stnek reas. The fourth year plant corn, followed in September of the same year with oats and clover. The fourth year let it rest in the clover, and continue it in clover as long as the growth and stand is good, beginning again witn mm. ITae stable, or lot manure, in every case when it can be obtained. For more northerly sections, where cotton and stock or southf rn field pea3 will not mature, commence on new ground witn corn, followed the next season with oats or some small grain. Next, sow down with clover or grass, or both mixed, and let remain as long as the growth is lux uriant. Follow them witli potatoes, and so on, giving a year s rest now and then From "Joio to Plant.''
