It is true that a few men here and there have managed large farms successfully under the large plantation system, but they are the exceptions. As a general rule the large farm system has been a fail ure, and has tended to bankrupt the owners. On the contrary', the one, two and three-horse farms, when in dustry, energy and fair manage ment have been displayed, have been fairly remunerative and proven to be reasonably success ful, where the farmer owned the land. We admit that the one, two and three-horse farms where managed and controlled by tenants, have not proveD a success. And there is good reason why they have not. The tenant has no prospective, no future, but only a present interest in the farm he manages, and hence has nothing bnt a present incent ive to skillful management of the faim, and therefore becomes an exhauster instead of a rebuilder of a rebuilder of the soil. In short, he works for the present, which means for self, and looks not to the future of the farm he is till- Therefore the question confront ing the agricultural people of this country now, and that must be de cided, and that ought to be de cided wisely, is, which is the bet ter for the whole country, to be filled up with large farms and with tenants who have nothing but a present intez-est in the lands, or to have it filled with what is usually denominated small land owners, who have both a.present and a fu ture in the lands? What class of farmers would the sooner and more readily bring prosperity to all businesses, to all homes, and to the whole country? Which of the two classes would more readily restore to thrift and productiveness the waste and idle lands that are now hanging as a tax burden upon the shonlders of the owners? If any reader becomes involved in doubt in making up his decis ion on these questions, let him go to the communities or neighbor hoods composed of small land owners, and his doubts will at once be dispelled. Mercury autl Calomel. Injudicious use of mercury in the form of calomel, or otherwise, leaves' very injurious after effects. Much of the distress that afflicts humanity is due to a too persist ent use of this poison. The various functions of the body become im paired by its use, and even the bones become affected, causing aches and a general debility and distress. Any one who has used mercury or calomel in any of its forms will do well to follow it np with a use of Dr. Bull’s Sarsapa rilla: This excellent alterative counteracts the evil effects of mer cury and other mineral poisons. It is composed of strictly vegetable ingredients, aud tfiere is nothing in its composition that will harm the most delicate. Good health invariably follows its use. Springfield Health Journal.

If so, you are in fa vor of devoting a portion of the farm to the cultivation of grasses: then what portion of a 400 acre farm one half of which is in culti vation, should be devoted to a per manent pasture of Bermuda and Texas Blue grass, and how much should be set in some hay making grass? I notice that you recommend Johson grass for hay. Would there not be danger of spreading it over oni fields by means of undi gested seeds, if the droppings from cattle fed on this grass were applied either in the form of a comnost or no? Your advice on these points will be greatly appreciated. H. W., Iva, S. C. Answer—1. We have uniform ly, and for many yeai’s, insisted that farmers devote more attention to stock growing and grass culture, believing that these are the foun dation of permanently successful agriculture, la any country. But the business of stock growing must be followed with reference to the direct as well as the incidental profits. A farmer is still “joined to his idols” who proposes to make every operation of the farm con duce to the one single idea of in creasing the productiveness of the land in cotton. The means used to increase the fertility of the soil' must be, in the main, profitable in themselves. The idea shonld be to develop other sources of income than the cotton crop while at the same time the yield of the land in cotton will be increased. It is not practicable to indicate a specific rule for dividing np the crops as suggested; but on a farm of 200 acres iu cultivation we would suggest that fifty acres would not be too much for a per- maneut pasture, and say, twenty to thirty acres in meadow, includ ing soiling and forage crops, the remainder to be devoted to corn, small grain and cotton. Better start on a small scale, both in grass and stock, in raising the one or the other, or both, as circum stances seem to indicate. There is a great danger of John son grass spreading. To prevent this: L Sow the grass on land that you are willing to devote to the purpose. Then (2) do not let it go to seed. It is very diffcult to get rid of Johnson grass when once well set on land.

He is rated to be worth 840,000,000 to 8100,000,000, yet he was seated in a porter’s chair in the Pacific yesterday scrubbing his hat as if he could never get another. While Mr. Blair spends little money on himself, but he is quite generous to others, and many kind deeds of charity are' credited to his worldly account. He is a remarkable man, for, although S8 years old, he presents the appear ance of one of 60, and accomplish es twice as much as most young men, His business career was be gun so long ago that the present generation does not know him well. He built the greater portion of the Laekawana road, investing his owd money and keeping every dollar of his securities. When Scranton was a wilderness he bought land iu and around the place, and saw it grow from nothing to a city 6f 100,000 people. Mr. Blair built and now owns half the roads in Iowa. The town of Blairsville, Y. J., is owned by him. Of late years he has made an immense amount of money in the. west. He would lay out the route oE a new road, mark the town sites along, the line, and buy up all the good land before the people knew of the line of road. When the towns sprang up Mr. Blair had all the lots for sale. What Is a Good Book? A good book is one that inter ests you. One in which the bright rather than the dark side of life is shown. One that makes you see how mean are the vices of life and how despicable aie the great sins. One that glorifies virtue in wo man and honor in man. One in which the good are re warded and the wicked are made to suffer—suffering, by the by, that may be of the conscience—or in a more material way, a reward given either on earth or promised for the future. One'which convinces you that this world is filled with good men and good women. One that breathes forth the goodness of a Creator, and re- speects his all governing laws. One that makes yon feel yon are meeting real people—people who elevate yonr thoughts as yon asso ciate with them.—ladies’ Home Journal. Dr. Boll’s Worm Destroyers are not new and untried.

A Purely Vegetable Remedy, A good story comes from the Pension office at Washington, vie the Chicago Yews: Some time ago a claimant for a pension submitted an affidavit from a physician at Duluth, testifying to his disability, aud to the fact that it was the re sult of his service daring the war. A few days ago the case came up, when a letter was written to tbe postmaster at Duluth asking whether the doctor was a regular practitioner and a man of honor and veracity. The reply came yes terday, in which the postmaster said that he had spent his entire life with the physician in ques tion, and believed him to be a man of good character. During his youth, unlike George Washington, he had told some falsehoods, but had been soundly whipped for them, and had learned better; therefore, in his old age, he was able to stick to facts as well as any citizen. Then he' signed his name, which wa sthe same as that of the physician, and it appears that the postmaster and the phys ician are one and the same per son. A new cure for stammering has been discovered. It consists in keeping silent for ten days. Then speaking in whispers for ten days more, and finally returning to the ordinary voice gradually. The ex pert who advances this theory has not as yet been able to obtain a dis ciple of the fairer sex to' operate upon. At the first step in this treatment there was general muti ny- “ A curious accident was witness ed by two Alton, (la.) citizens the other day. They weie going from that place to Sioux Center, when a thunderstorm came np. They had noticed an eagle flying quite high in the air, and' while watching the bird a bolt of lightning struck it- and felled it to the ground. With the exception of a broken wing it was seriously injured. Silence is golden; but it’s the other fellow’s silence that is meant. tective system. The masses every where are against it. The Yew York Evening Post suggests that if republican wisdom is not equal to the task of framing a judicious tariff it would be a good policy to let the matter alone. The present tariff with its average dn- ties of fifty per cent would be far less injurious to the country than a reckless system under which some of the duties would jump from foily-five to three hundred per cent. The McKinley bill is simply in defensible. Oar legislative annals do not furnish an instance of i bolder attempt to run the govern ment- in the interest of the classes and against the masses. Our only safety is in going back to the good old democratic policy— a tariff to raise the revenue need ed for the economical expenses of the government, with the duties so laid as to prevent the cheap la bor of Europe from crushing the industries which are necessary to our existence as an independent people. On Feb. 14th, 1SS9, occurred the' St. George disaster on the Grand Trunk Railway. There were eighteen killed and injured. Ac tions were brought to recover damages aggregating 8300,000. To simplify and expedite litiga tion counsel agreed Ip make a test case. The feigned issue contains thirty-eight questions, the answers to which would determine the question of negligence. The trial lasted fifty-six days, Justice Bose, of Toronto, presiding. On April 25th the jury submitted their find- iugs. The railroad company was found guilt} 7 of negligence. The amount of the damages is yet to be settled. This is the most noted trial of the kind that ever took place in the Dominion, and should the proceedings be sustained in the higher courts it would open a new chapter in railway litigation. Henry Cabot Lodge walked over from the House of Representatives to the Senate chamber one morn ing, accompanied by an old gen tleman who wore a heavy gray overcoat, a high hat of the style of forty years ago, and carried a large- cane. The old gentleman said smilingly to the doorkeeper: “Oh, yes, I have the privilege of the floor. I was a senator once, but probably before your time. I am -also an ex-Sp'eaker of the House.” Then he good-naturedly said that he was Robert C. Winthrop, and that he was a senator from July, 18to, to February, 1851, having filled the nnexpired term of Daniel Webster. with the church goers; who could drink distilled spirits v ith the one quaff cider with the other who, in other words was a companionable man had a powerful leverage in his race for office. This was all well enough it its way. A pleasant and sociable man is agreeable company, and they generallybave “a way abont them” which is difficult to resist. But at the same time it is not- always the most companionable man who is the best capacitated to serve the people as their representative in any capacity. Sometimes it will answer, and sometimes it will not. Matters, however, have under gone a change. People demand of their representatives something more than mere agreeableness. There principle with it, and principle take precedence over personality. In the coming cam paign this fact will be emphasized. There are important issues and vi tal principles involved. The peo ple intend to demand that there be a full expression upon live and pertinent issues. And the expres sion must be open and not con fined to the personal drumming hitherto engaged in. The people will vote for principle in prefer ence to personal likes and dislikes and affairs will be better managed for this fact. We see in the change benefit to the government and the further fact that the ablest men of strong est principles-- will conduct our public matters. A wealthy citizen of Dover, Me., was mortified the other day. He had just been making a clean breast of his deplorable financial condition to the assessors; and go ing to a grocery store soon after, he was appalled to find that the assessor had taken his statement so literally as to order a barrel of flour, a codfish and some other ar ticles sent to him at the town’s ex panse.

The loss by fire in the United States during the year 1889 reach ed the enormous sum of nearly 8125,000,000, against 8110,000,000 in 1888. The fire waste of 1889 exceeds that of any year daring the fifteen years that an accurate record of the annual loss in the United States has been kept,- and it was only approached by the year 1887, when a total of 8120,- 200.000 was reached. It is a no table fact that 1889 was a year of great conflagrations, 47 per cent of the entire waste having been confined to fifty-three fires of over 8200.000 in magnitude, the total amount of loss in these fifty-three fires being nearly §50,000,000, an enormous apportionment, making the average loss per fire a little less than 81,000,000. — Boston Transcript The fruit of the coco-de-mer, which Gen.
