LA UGE FARMS. ,
Eighteen miles West of Fargo, a
wd in Minnesota, is a farm ot 100,
000 acres', owned by -Eastern-capital;
isl8. 1 It is all prairie land and has
bin recently been brought into cul
tivation, each year there being from
5 000 to 7,000 additional acres added
to the 'cultivated area of the previ
o is year. Last year 13,000 acres of
this farm produced 225,000 bushels
o wheat, which sold, for as many
d jllarjs and which was grown at an
e cpense of 35 cts. per bushel.
These facts are taken from a Min
niisota japerj and if they can be
ci edited farming, on a large scale
certainly pays in that far off State.
Every! operation connected with
that farm is most interesting. fo;
froni the seeding to the
the most i in
proved implements are
used, j But the" -harvesting, is the
most peculiarly interesting "'portion
o " the work. A driver hitches four
h rses to a harvester, and enters the
fi ?ld alone with his ; team. In ten
h iiirs' time he cuts down bundles
and ties with wire, tossing the bun
d es all out of his way, from. tVelve
to eighteen acres of wheat,i averag
ing twenty-five busheles to tneacre.
In South Carolina we think one man
does jiretty well if he cradles three
ac res a day,' and! we k n o w thq w h eat
stands, pretty thick if it averages the
third I of twenty -five. Will labor
8a,ving implements ever enable us to
cc mpete with our wiry - cousins in
Yankee land? -
. A ROMANCE.
A beautiful girl has been discov
ered in Waco, Texas, dressed in male
aUire.j After her arrest, she .con
fessed to her sex and told a strange
history.' According to her story, she
is a girl J6 years of age, belonging
to a wealthy and prominent family
in the State of Missouri, but whose
ns.me she would not reveal. A young
man courted her, but her brother-in-
laW" t objected to the marriage, and
een threatened her life if she mar
ried her lover. She came to Texas
one year ago, and in March last mar
ried the object of her affections.
Some weeks ago, hearing that her
relatives were on her track, she was
obligel to adopt this disguise to es
cape j danger from them, and sare
fcerseU ad be? husband from their
wrath, knowing that uo man. has ever
yet been punished for killing a ro
mW in Texas The fair girl has the
bashfnlness of girlhood, but. seems
rfectly at home in breecnes. xt is
lieved that there is more romance
d mystery about the case than the
I girl has yet seen- fit to- reveal. "
