Wen traveling over the road between
San Francisco and I'ortland.ever
since it was built, yet the novelty
of the journey was as freslr as when
he made his first trip, " I guess,"
he added, " that I am a little ro
mantic, but it ' not painful to me,
and I always think pleasantly of
Oakland roses to-day and contrast
them with Shasta's frost of to
morrow." So the trip by the Shas

The Farmer a Skilled Laborer.
Viewed from the lofty standpoint

the Philadelphia Rill-posters' Pro

man who decides to havo corn

grass, grow on a piece of land, and
sows and plants the seed that wil
produce them. In point of fact

quisite for prosecuting his craft sue
cessfully than that of any city arti

die a plow than a trowel. It Is more
difficult to manage a reaping ni a

out brick, Greater knowledge is
needed to sow grain than to move
switches in a freight yard. Muc
more mtormation, experience am.

Two years ago a correspondent
went to Reauvoir to ask Jefferson
Davis to write an article on Abra
ham Lincoln, at his own price, for a
New York Magazine, Davis courte
ously declined, saying that, in his
opinion, Lincoln had been dead too
short a time for accurate and dispas-
Bionato judgment to be passed on his
political career. Then he said: "It
is curious that I never met Mr. Lin

seen him. I resigned from the houso
to go to Mexico in 1840, and Mr. Lin

body until later. When I roturned
to Washington, in 1847, as senator
from Mississippi, although frequent
