Prescriptions carefully Compounded
There is no occupation bo grand,
so noble, and tbat which makes one
so independent as farming. It gives
you an opportunity for mental cul
ture during the winter, and physical
strength during tho summer. It is a
home where good morals can be en
tertained without those allurements
which are always" predominant in city
He who tills the soil is engaged in
an honorable occupation. Agricul
ture is the greatest among the arts,
for it is first in supplying our neces
sities; it favors and strengthens
populatien: it creatos and maintains
manufactures; gives employment "to
navigation and materials to com
merce. It is also the strongest bond
of well regulated society, the surest
basis of internal peace, the natural
associate of good morals. So the
j oung man who desires to leave the
farm and go out into the wido world
for himself, perhaps to some far off
city, or some spot on his native land,
where ho imagines there will be a.
paradise open for him; such a step in
life should be well considered before
It is a good thing to fit yourself for
a lawyer, a doctor, a minister, but it
is a better thing to know that you
can be one. Young men, favored with
everv opportunity for enjoyment at
home, and not overworked, imagine
that they can do better than to guide
the ox, or to turn the stubborn glebe.
And, with the merest triGe of consid
eration, the hands are withdrawn
from the implements of agriculture
and given to the office or the shop
work of the city. And thus thou
sands of young men are utterly
ruined. If they would only stop and
think, "What can I make of ray
self?" The question, 'To what is my abili
ty mostly adapted?" Then they
might go fonvard into life's journey
with a better prospect of success.
"Ever remember," writes Gold
thwait, "that for health and substan
tial wealth, for rare opportunities,
for solf-improvement, for long life
and real independence farming is the
best business in the world."
VVLUK OFSMVLL THINGS.
The JOiabaitdman of E.mira, X.i
1., teaches a lesson in brief when it
says: "A grain of wheat is small,
when considered by itself insignifi
cant. It is but the merest fraction of
appreciable value, yet it is typical of
the interest that engages attention
from nearly half our people- the
farming interest. To get this grain
of wheat the farmer must havo fitted
the soil, sown the seed, cared for the
crop to the harvest, gathered it,
thrchhed it, and all these operations
have filled the year. His rewards are
fairly typified by tho insignificant
kernel of wheat that must be multi
plied a thousand fold before it has
practical utility in feeding his family
or supporting commerce and giving
him that full return for labor which
is hia just due. Tho lesson to bo de
rived from the grain of wheat has
deep import for farmers who find
profit and loss separated by but the
narrowest margin. The little things
must be put to use and from them
must be obtained the fullest value if
profit is to be realized. Failing in
this regard, loss is almost certain.
The farmer deals every day of his life
in small things, but in tho aggregate
these little things make the commerce
of the world. He produces food for
all mankind and the fiber from which
their raiment is wrought. His mis
sion is of first importance, and al
though it relates almost wholly to
small things, if he be not faithful to
them and watchful to make the most
of Irs opportunities, distress falls,
not only upon him and his family, but
upon tho world. He must multiplv
the grain of wheat indefinitely, and
he must care for the increase judici
ously and constantly or fail of his re
wards." A 3Ian With Six Wires.
A man with six wives is likely to go
to jail for bigamy, which, after all,
may not be much more disagreeable
than trying to live with six women
at a time. Either course is not more
disagreeable than to be afflicted
with dyspepsia and liver complaint.
Frank Jones, of Cothrans, Texas,
writes, "I am using Brown's Iron Bit
ters for dyspepsia and debility, and
it has done me a great deal of benefit,"
Any other man may receive similar
advantage. It also cures malaria,
weakness, neuralgia, etc.
The area of the British colonies is
nearly 8,000,000 of square miles
rather less that the area of tho Rus
sian empire, including Siberia and
Central Asia; but if the area of the
native feudatory states in India,
amounting to 509,284 square miles, be
aaaed, over which England exercises
as great control as Bussia does over
much of tho territory under its sway.
together with, that of tho United
Kingdom itself, 120,757 miles, then
the area of the British empire exceeds
that of the Russian empire by about
200,000 square miles, and it covers
within a fraction of one-sixth of the
whole land area of the globe.

Washington-, Feb. 1. The star
chamber policy of the house commit
tee on rivers and harbors has in
censed a great many members. The
usual privilege of going before the
committee to be heard on their dis
tricts was this year entirely withheld.
This naturally aroused a good deal of
resentment The only way for con-
jgressmen to be heard on the improve-!
inents is to take the bull bv the horns
in tho house and push amendments
there to iueroase needed appropria
tions. This course will be pursued
by a number of western members
who feel dissatisfied. It is said also
that the rule laid down bv tho com
mittee to allow only twouty-five cents
of every dollar asked has not been
lived up to, especially the appropria
tions asked for.
New York, Feb. 1. -The commit
tee having in charge the raising of
funds for the Bartholdi pedestal, be
ing confident that congress will pass
the bill appropriating $100,000 for
thatwork, are no longer pushing for
funds in other directions. The original
estimate of cost for the pedestal was
$230,000. About $160,000 has been
raised by popular subscription, and
with the congressional appropriation
and what is yet to come from the state
and local committees, there will be an
ample sum to meet all expenses.
Don't Give Up Yet.
It doesn't follow that a patient will
die because the doctors have "given
him up."' or that he will recover because
tlicv promise to "null him through.' It
is never to late to try the great irtues
of Parker's Tonic. "Mr. Michael Guil
fovlc. of Binejhatnton,?". Y., was cured
of Rlii'iimatisin by it after ten years of
unspeakable suffering. 3Ir. R. Y.
Mother, druggist, of same city, certifies
that he has sold over a thousand bottles
of Parker's Tonic through its reputa
tion for tins ami oilier cures.
"Who knows a prettier vine of gen
eral ornament than the hop? We
habitually associate tho hop with tho
pole3 and tho commercial air or the
hop-yard, but when viewed in its na
tive beauty, as it clambers over fences
or saplings, it possesses a modest and
clean beauty which one can find in
few other vines. .Let ono climb over
a shrub or small tree near the house,
and you cannot fail to admire its
careless aspect and its penuant uaii
of yellow and green. Plant a root at
the baso of the tree, manure it well,
and then enjoy the plant from the
appearance of the first light green
flexile shoot to the brown-tint balls
of Autumn. "When the vine dies in
the fall remove it to the ground.
The next year the samo roots will
send up the same garlands.
