WASHINGTON, Aug. 21. Ex-Senn-tor
John M. Thurston, counsel for
Soiuitor Mitchell, reached New York
yesterday. In un interview hearing
on tho Mitchell case ho virtually ad
mits Mitchell's guilt, but oxpresses a
hope that tho Senator uiay ultlmately
esoape on technical grounds. Here
Is what Thurston says:
"1 feel quite hopeful of obtaining
a reversal of tho vol diet against Sena
tor Mitchell when tho ouso, which has
been appealed lo tno United States
supreme court, is opened ngnln next
spring. There are several points on
which I believe we can obtain this re
versal. Cue of these is Iho wording
of tho indictment against Senator
Mitchell, which should specify tho par
ticular crime with '.which he is
charged. This it does not do."
Another technical point which Sen
ator Thurston says may galu a rever
sal of tho verdict is the fact that under
the stattito for limitations the alleged
crime was outlawed before tho Indict-:

Owing to tho Absence of tbe pastor

tho M. R. Church, South, jext Sun-
Sbe Wtals to "Meander on tbe Farm." !
From tho American Farmer. j
We are in receipt of one of those
gushing letters which are oharacteris-
tio of sentimental girls just leaving
high school, with their beads full of
the kind of notions about life obtain
ed from trashy novels. She says she
has beard a great deal about the de
lights of country life, occasionally
reads a copy of the Amerloan Farm
er, whioh be father takes, and longs
for a romatio experience with a young
farmer at one end of the story and
herself at tbe other. This girl, who
lives in a oity, informs us tbat "it Is
a fond dream of mine to become a
farmer's wife and meander with him
down life's pathway. " Of course our
natural desire .to please the young
ladies would incline us to help thiB
one secure what sbe wants, but some
insuperable ditiicultiea present them
selves, Tbe othor sido must ne con
sulted aud we fear tbe average young
farmer does not tuke so romatio a
view of life as our correspondent,
Farmers are practicalpeoplo and when
they murr? insist above all things up
on a pruclicul wife. So wo fear Miss
Meander might not suit any of our1
farmer aqcuaintances even if aftor j
trial, he should suit her as well as she (
now fondly BUpposes. Our gushing
correspondent will lcnrujsoine day, es
pecially if she marries a working man
either in country or city, that there '
something to do beside going
downJ4ifes pathway" locked arm in
arm, singing lullabies aud eating
cream tarts. Rofore the honeymoon
is over our meandering friend is aure
to be painfully disillusionized. Her
hubby is liable to mo tin dor off uud
leave ber without wood which will
necessitate her meandering up aud
down the lane peeling splinters off
the fence to cook dinner. Of course
this will cause a rude shock to be
added to when tbo young wife is com
pelled to meaudor along in the wet
grass in search of the cows until her
shoes are tbe color of rawhide and
her stockings soaked. About tbat
time there's apt to be 'some display
of temper as "life's pathway" looms
up in the distance as a rocky and
Still other trials await, when it be
comes necessary to meander out
across twenty acres of plowed ground
with a club to drive the bogs out of
the cornfield aud tear your dress on
the barbed wire fence. If, in this
mood, you meaudor back home to the
house and find that the Billy gat has
butted the stuffiu" out of your child
or iiudthe old hen with forty ohick-
ens in the parlor, we venture to say
tbat you will put your bauds ou your
hips and admit that meandering is
not what it is cracked up to be. Of
course all this is presuming that you
have secured a husband of - average
good sense and habits. If, however,
he 1b in tbe habit of meandering over
to the saloon too oftou or when want
ed for work is found to have mean
dered off with evil companions, tbe
case will be much worse for the young
wife who expected to find "life's
pathway" all roses and sunbeams. Al
together, wo are inclined to think
that it will notbe safe for our fair
correspondent to meander to tho
country in search of a busband. Sbe
had better try to oatch on to some
rich young fool or some old one who
wants a "darling," so that tbe mean
dering business may be over roads
less rooky than those usually lying
before the hard working wife of an
