Such an Kden existed In the extreme
western pan of Ohio In the spring of
1S41V ll was a Valley surrounded by
wooded lulls mid threaded by a noisy
irook which hastily made Its way. as
If upon some errand of Immense Im-
ortance. down to the bin Miami not
many miles distant. A road cut
through a vast and solemn forest led
Into the valley, and entering as If by
corridor and through the open portal
of a temple, the traveler saw a white
farm-house nestling beneath a mighty
haokberry tree whose wide-reaching
arms sheltered It from summer sun
and winter wind. A deep, wide lawn
of bluegrass lay In front, and a garden
of (lower, fragrant and brilliant, on
Its southern side. Stretching uwav In
to the background was Ihe farm newly
carved out of the wilderness, but al
ready In a high state of cultivation.
In this lovely valley, at the close of
long, odorous, sifn -drenched day In
early May. tlie sacred silence was bro
ken by a raucous blast from that most
unmusical of Instruments, a tin dinner
was blown by h bare-legged j
who scented to take d
light In this profanation. Hy hi side,
lu the vine-lad porch of the white
farm-house stood a woman who shad
ed her eyes with her band as she look

meadow She was no longer young. As
the light of the setting sun fell full
upon tu r face it seemed almost trans

was In a "tantrum" instead of a
trance." and he thought such a dis
ease demanded heroic treatment.
I-'or several years this Quaker youth.
I lav Id Corson, had been the subject of
remarkable emotional experiences. In
explanation of which the rude wits of
the village declared that he had been
moon-struck; the young girls who
adored his beauty thought he was In
love, and the venerable fathers and
mothers of tills religious community
believed that In him the scriptural
prophecy, "Your young men shall see
visions," had been literally fulfilled.
Pavid Corson himself accepted the last
explanation with unquestioning faith.
The life of this young man had been
pure and uneventful. Kxistence in
this frontier region, once full of the
tragedy of Indian warfare, had been
gradually softened by peace and rel.g
j ion. In such a sequestered rcgioiT

ITALIAN COLONIES IN TEXAS.
Snidleate with $1,000,000 Capital
Arranvea for Two Settlements.
Two localities In Taa are to be
the scenes of a new plan in coloniza
tion, according to a report from Rome,
eays the New York Herald. An Ital
ian syndicate will establish la the
middle part of the State two agricul
tural colonies, each composed of 100
families, or about 1.000 persons In all.
brought directly from the agricultural
districts of northern Italy.
The entire scheme calls for the ex
penditure of about $1,000,000. One-
third of the amount has been subscrib
ed by Texas capitalists headed by
Capt. Nicolinl, Italian consular ageut
at Galveston. The rest has been fur
nished by a syndicate organized last
winter hi Milan, and presided over by

Bad roads are an extravagance that
no farming community can afford.
Just what they cost in unnecessary
expenses It takes but a moment to de
termine. A team and driver are -asonably
worth ii a day, na by the use of
these It is a-f?ible to deliver to mar
Wat trom your home luo bushels of
corn. Hauling over pood roads, the
cost of delivery is 3 cents per bushel.
Rut if. In consequence of bad roads,
but fifty bushels can be delivered, the
cost Is doubled and the difference is
what the impassible roads cost you.
Continue this calculation, applying it
to the hauling of all your crops, and
it quickly becomes apparent that It
amounts to a very burdensome tax.
Good roads help la every way; thev
