If the Journal will allow me
space I would like to say a few
words in lehal( of my old friend
and uncle, the late Seaborn.!.
Twenty five years ago 1 e begat
life anew in a little one room cabin
and this constituted a home tor
him and his young wife who is left
now to mourn his loss. This cabin
was built of split poplar logs which
was cut when the sap vas up and
the bark peeled off and I remem
ber how they looked so pretty and
white and like the snow that
throws it’s mantle over the pines
of the forest. This cabin gave
shelter to two that had a purpose
in life, and when Mr. Gaiter
passed away to a country a few
days ago, tha mortal eyes have
not seen, he was one of the wealth
iest men in the county. We have
many good farmers on paper but
Mr. Garter sold more corn than
any man in the county of his age.
He often said that observations
was worth more han the Farm
Journal and that he had more ol
that than many who wrote for the
Journal and he showed his faith
by his works. lie studied his own
sit’d selection and any man iu his
part of the county will tell you he
had the finest strain of corn they
ever saw. 1 saw Mr. Garter a few
days ago and we talked of the past
and future, but theend wa lodded
from him like it is from the rest oi
us, but 1 shall meet him in a bright
er place than this. II not i will
be disappointed and my dream
will not coinetrue.

Mr. Skinner, of of Phihulel
phia, who will place the bonds
for the Lula Homer Railroad, re
quested Mr. D. G. Zeigler to make
a survey leading towards Carnes
ville, and he did so last week. It
is now thought by many that the
lord will not stop at Homer, but
that it is the intentions of the pro
noters to extend it to other points
east ot this place. Mr. Zeigler says
that there will be little difltculty
in grading the road through to
Carnesville. Stock is now being
subscribed with the understanding
that not one dollar is to be
paid until the road is completed to
Homer and in operations niter
which one third is due in thirty
days, one third in sixty days and
one third in ninety days. While
there has not been much talk and
blow about this uew road, much
work has been done, and anyone
who is interested and friendly to
wards the enterprise can learn the
facts by consulting Mr. Zeigler in
Homer at any time.
All railroads require the citi
z ms of a country through which it
runs to take some of the stock.
There are several reasons why they
do this. One is that when the
people are part owner the road is
protected in law.
Let Us MaKe This
A Good Looking Town
If every man who read this—
and every woman, too -would
make it his or her business, the
hour he or she has, to look around
the home premises and see how
they could bo fixed op to look
better it would lie a great thing
for this town. It might not in
duce people to do any more than
rake up the sticks that are
lying around. That would be a
great help alone. But maybe while
raking up the loose leaves you
would find there is a loose board
in the sidewalk, a broken picket
iii the fence, that the corner of the
porch as saggad or thal the front
steps need anew plank in them.
And, as you would waul to make
a complete job of it, >ou would
see that these repaiis are made.
Maybe the house has needed anew
coat of paint for a long time.
Perhaps new curtains are needed
at the front windows. And the
inside of the house is quite as ini
portant as the outside-- is more im
portant, for it is on the inside you
live aud where visitors get their
real impression of you and of the
town. Maybe before you get
through, if you will really look
abmt you, there will be several
things that can be nia le to look
vastly better with the aid ol a few
boards or nails or a lit le varnish
or a smail expenditure ol money.
Collectively the effect on this town
will be great. There is no i eon
nmy in letting things run down
and putting repairs off. A house
that needs repaiis is g iug down
hil ; and [a house that is going
down is losingvalue---salueibotl in
money and comfort. L d’s make
this a better looking town; and
let’s begin, like charity, at home.

Eloquence of a Child’s Grave
By RobebtG. Tnukrhoix
My friends: I know how vain
it is to gild giief with words, and
yet I wish to take from every
grave its fear. Hear is this world,
where life and death aie equal
kinds, all should be brave enough
to meet what all the dead have
met. The future has been filled
with fear, stained aud polluted by
the heartless past. From the won
drous tree of life buds and blos
soms fall with ripened fruit, and
and in the common bed of earth
patriarch's and babies sleep side
Why should we fear that which
will come to all that is? We caoj
not tell, we do not know, .vhich is
'the greater blessing—life or death
We cannot say that death is not
good. We do not know whether
the grave is the end of this life or
the ilooi of another, or whethej
tne night here is somewhere else a
dawn. Neither can we tell which
is the more fortunate—the child
dying in its mother's arms, before
its lips have learned to form a
word, or he who journeys all the
length of life’s uneven road pain
fully takeh the last slow steps with
staff and crutch.
Every cradle ask us “whence?”
and every coflin “Whither?” The
poor barbarian, weeping above his
lead, can answer these questions
just as well the rolled priest of the
most authentic creed. The tear
ful ignorance of the one is as con
soling as the learned and unmean
ing words of the other No. man,
standing where the horizon of life
has touched a grave has any right
to prophesy a future filled with
pain and tears.
Maybe that death gives all there
is of worth to lile. If those we
press in our arms could
never die, perhaps love would
wither fron the earth. Maybe
this common fate treads from out
the paths between our hearts the
weeds of relfiseness and hate.
An I I had rather live and love
where death is king than haveeter
naUife where love is not. Another
life is naught unless we know and
love again the ones who love us
They who stand with breaking,
hearts around this little grave
need have no fear. The larger
and the noble faith in all that is
and is to be tells us that death,
even at its woist, is only perfect
rest. We know that through the
common wants of life —the needs
and duties of each hour — their
grief will lessen day by day, until
at last this grave will be to them a
a place of rest and peace—almost
a joy. There is lor them this con
solution—the din l to not suffer.
If they 1 ve ag uu their lives will
Surely be", purs. We have no
fear. Wo are all children of the
•'an o mother, and the sane fate
awaits us all. We, too, have our
icligiou, and it is this: Help for
the living—Hope lor the dead.
Wi never heard of the mouth
and hoof disease of cattle until it

other states recently, but Mr.

raised in that county, took the
sore mouth and her feet rotted off
before she died, but no other cat
