JACKSONVILLE, OREGON, FRIDAY, AUGUST 24, 1877
The higher aim of every intelligent
farmer should be the improvement of
the productions of the land until it
reaches the point when maximum crops
are produced at the minimum ex
pense. The wise farmer regards the
soil simply as a machine from which
or by the use of which, with the use
of proper materials, he may turn out
crops. This machine is a matter of
the first and greatest importance. Il
should always be kept in good run
ning order, and its efficiency should I m *
increased by all known economical
methods. The farmer who conducts
his work upon this system will never
sacrifice or exhaust his soil for a great
crop. His aim is to have the crop
taken off, leaving the land in a better
condition than he found it. He aims
at every working of the soil to in
crease its depths and thus add to it
more ««f the element of fertility than
he removes in the crops, and to make
the crops not only pay for themselves
hut also for the improvement of the
-oil upon which they were grown.
In carryingout this aim so as io re
alize these re-ults we are able to judge
of the skill of the farmer. It ha com
paratively easy thing for any one who
has money to improve a soil so that it
shall produce large crop-, but when ii
is necessary that these crops should
yield a profit we greatly complicate
the problem. A large crop from any
soil is only a question of expenditure
of labor and manure, but a profitable
one requires skillful expenditure as
well. Yet it is possible to do thi-,
and there are farmers skillful enough
to produce this result, and this we
claim is the true and proper aim ol
every farmer. The most judiciou-
i improvements, those which finally
pay the largest profits, require several
years to tiring iu their full returns. It
is a matter of great importance that
the farmer should not only be settled
but that be should feel settled, and
that his plan of operations should be
planned as if he expected to spend all
his life on it. It is just here that our
to«» common system of renting from
year to year, or the still more ruinous
plan of “farming on the shares,” ex
hibits its evil effects. The owner re
linquishes the care and management
of ttie farm to men whose only inter
est consists in obtaining all they can
this year, for they may have no
chance next; they, from the very na
lure of their contract, have not tile
least interest in the permanent or
even transient improvement of the

—Here’s the story of an unfortunate
young lawyer. This unlucky wight
was head over heels in love with a
beautiful girl, and was about to bo mar
ried to her. On the eve of the wed
ding-day, he was called on to defend
an awful miscreant—a man of thirty,
who had ¡»oisoned his mother and fa
ther. The case seemed a lost one, and
when the prosecution had closed, the
young lawyer was just about giving 1
up the struggle without an effort. Sud
denly he perceived in the far extremi
ty of the court-room his beloved and
her parents, who had come to see what
kind of stuff he was made of. The
presence of the one he worships chang
es his train of thought. He feels that
he must make a show of talent, «nd,
commencing his argument, rises to the
highest flights of eloquence. In a
word, he succeeded in showing that
the criminal is a much-abused man,
and obtains his acquittal. In the even
ing, the lawyer, with triumphant air,
calls at the house of his future father-
in-law, expecting that Ids success will
ensure him a warm reception. To his
surprise he finds the young girl cold,
and her parents much embarrassed.
He asks what this sort of reception
means. “My friend,” saya he, whom
the young man had already begun to
call father-in-law, “I must tell you—
my daughter loves another.” “An
other! Who is the man?” “The good
and virtuous man whom you to-day,
by your eloquence, restored to society,”
replies the father.

her struggles with boarders in a small

T he B ank of E ngland .—Few who
read of the Bank of England have any
idea of the vastness of the operations of
this greatest of the financial institutions
of the world. London is a sort of clear
ing house for all civilized nations, an«i
around the Bank of England the com
mercial world may be said to revolve.
The greatest amount of deposits in the
whole of the New Y«>rk banks has rare
ly if ever exceeded $200,01)0,900; tho<»e
in this one London bank have reached
more than half that sum, or$l50.000,-
900. The New York hanks* loans have
varied sometimes $5,000,000 or $10,-
009,000 a week; in one week last M iy,
«luring a panic, the loans by th«* Bank
of England rose over $50,000,000, and
reached $155,000,090, or more than half
the highest suit ) ever reached by the
fifty-nine associated bants of N« w
York. The greatness of the «1« p >-i!s
is remarkable, especially as th«* bank
pays i’.o interest on them and is sur
rounded by institutions that do. An
other not less remarkable fact is that
nearly forty per cent, of the-e d«‘|M)-its
—at on«* time nearly $50,000,000—was
placed in the bank by private hankers,
despite the lack of interest. All the-e
things show what is the real function
«»t this vast establishment—s<»«*urity.
So desirable is safety, that th«* owners
<>f $150,900,000 prefer to keep it in the
bank’s vaults without interest rather
than trust it elsewhere. The oilier
function the bank lias undertaken—to
control the money market — it has
failed to achieve; but the safety it gives
to funjls has doubtless contributed
much to lower the rate of iuterst in
London. Great care anil pains are
taken Io secure this safety. Every
night twenty-five solJiera of the regu
lar army are detailed toguard the bank;
and for directors and managers men of
the highest character are selected.
The movement of its deposits is
watched with eagerness, and it has
even been said that whenever they fail
below $^20,000,000 money is pretty
sure to be scarce.
P ure A ir .—Whatever renders the
blood impure tends to originate con
sumption. Whatever makes the air
impure makes the blood impure. It is
the air we breathe which purifies the
blood. What, then, are some of the
more prominent things which rend
er the air impure? Il is the nature of
still air to become impure. Running
water purifies itself. Air in motion,
draughts of air, are self-purifiers.
Thus it is that the air of a close room
becomes foul inevitably. Thus it is
that close rooms bring consumption
to countless thousands. Hence all
rooms should be so constructed as to
have a current of air passing through
them. A man of ordinary size renders
a hogshead of air unfit for breathing,
and consumes Itsblood-puiifying quali

close rooms, even though alone, or sit
