A True Statesman.
The decease of lion, Charles Sumner, at the
age of 03, has been marked by (ho sincere sor
row o( the nation, Wo have too tow." among
living politicians, whoso conduct 'is governed
by purely honornblo motives, not to regret
deeply the loss of one whoso character has
been beyond assanlt. Whatever mistakes

We ore not living in the millennium, and
thero aro dishonest seedsmen as well as dis
honest persons in nil other branches of busi

made a sufficient barrier of, restraint. Where
fraud, or th6 intent to commit fraud, can be
proven, a recourse to litigation should bring
but one result conviction ot tho tmllty. A
flinching determination had stung into onmity.
No map of any strength could havo lived amid
tho stirring events which havo occurred during
our national history without making enemies,
and bitter ones. Even Washington, who was
ono of tho very few men who met with appre

A Farm Hand's Complaint.

Editors Pnrss: I feel like giving the public
a few ideas about the way farm hands are"
treated by some of tho farmers. There has
been a Rood deal written on this subject lately,
especially since tho organization of theOrangcit!
I will speak from my own experience.
I have been a farm hand for seven years, and
have worked for ft' crcat many different farm
ers during that time. Mow X am going to lay
prejudice aside and speak the truth. The worst
class of farmers to work for are those who farm
on a large soalej those who aro able to provide
better for their hands if they would. If we
work for a poor farmer we get a bed in the
house, and sit nt the same table with the family,
nnd sit at his fire and read his papers, and en
joy tho comforts of his house generally. But
with the large farmers wo have to furnish our
own bed, if we have any; if not, may be he
will be kind enough to give us an old piece of
blanket or quilt, or a few old sacks to cover
ourselves with. He will tell us to go out in
the barn or in the granary, or to tho hay staok
to sleep. Then when we cet no in the morn
ing and take caro of our teams, we stand aronnd
tno narn until toe cook (a Chinaman usually)
says breakfast is readv. Then we walk around
tho house to tho kitchen; thero wo find a place
to wash ourselves out of an old barrel or a
milk pan; then we wipe on tho towel or
piece of hurley sack, that bangs thero for us
only; then comb our hair that is. If we barmen
to have a comb of our own. As a general thing
we have plenty to eat, such as It is; but it is
cooked in sneh a stylo that wo can scarcely eat
it. Tho farmer expects us to go to tho field
and do as much work ns though we had plenty
of thu best to eat aud a good place to sleep.
It we want to no any place we havo to walk; he
would not I) t us have a horso to ride, to save
our lives; bo will tell us to bo on hand to go
to work in thn morning. If wo are walking
ulong the road and one of them overtakes ns
wo scarcely ever ask for a rido, because wo
know that ho does not liko to have us ride with

now six feet in bight, and well-formed by
pruning. It is identical with sonio I baw many
years ago, on tho western borders of the blerra
Novuda mountains, upon which the ruff, as I
then supposed it to be, was grow ng. I found
the kernel (which I supposed to be the cherry
pit) covered with a fleshy skin, which I found
bitter to the taste, and which reminded me of
the wild, black cherry, iu Its general shape ami
bitterness, though not so smooth or lively in
color. I will send you a branch from my
tree. Would liko to know if it is the same as

Tho forty thousand dollars lost by tho death
of this cow is only an item in tho list of dam
ages to which tho owners of choice Block havo
been subjected by losses from tho same cause,
abortion. This has been truly a disastrous
calamity in the old dairy districts, where no
efforts havu been spared to securo blooded
stock. Tho evil has prevailed during a period
of several years, nnd though the owners aro
not disposed to go back to no pedigree stock,
many of them look upon abortion as hereditary
among blooded stock. Others consider it an
epidemic which Is destined to havo its day.
Hut aro we not justified in charging tho
breeders and owners of this choico stock with
being greatly to blamo in this matter, through
mi unwarrantable, eagerness to obtain ono or
two points by breeding, to the negloct of other
characteristlca essential to tho health and
usefulness of thu animal ? Anions dairymen,
tho only consideration is milk. Thev want nn
early milker and late milker; n flush milker
and rich milker. Aud when, by breeding aud
management, they havo attained, ns nearly as
pos4iiiie, an ineso properties in ono cow, tuoy
take tho calf away from tho mother too soon
for the itood of cither, mid continue uiilkinatoo
cioso upon me noxt comiug in.
These cows, throuch tho whole conrsa of
their lives, are pampered and petted, aud put
inrougu n courso 01 treatment, ns iletrlmental

by the women'of this country. In regard to
tno inner, ouougu is ueing salil, nnd we only
anuiiuioii uoru 10 uriiw n parallel; nnd vie
think lho parallel Is so apparent, and the con
sequences of tho violation of the laws of health
am so similar, that it would ho worth whilo to
cousidor it, and govern onr management of
choice stock accordingly.
Hut wa have evcu less reason to expect
healthy progeny, or indeed nny progony nt nil
from our choico stock, when wo traco out tho
record of tho lives of tho malos. Havo our
readers ever visited tho stalls ot any of our col-
uuriiieii uuiisr ii.tuey nave, ami nave iinly con
sidered the inevitable conscqnenccs of tho vio
lation of tho laws of nulmal health, thoy must,
wti think, have come to tho conclusion that
however reliable the animal may bo in trans
mitting tho characteristics of his breed, he cer
tainly cannot be expected to trausmtt physical
health aud friiltfuliiess.
