Jonatliau Bruce said nothing but
he took his elbows down off the kitch-
eu window sill and walked away, feel
as if all the brightness had gone out
of the summer sky, all the sweetuess
from the balniy- July air.
'I've made d mistake,' thought he.

gentle-aud soft spoken enough to deal
with a: question like tjiis. Poor little
Dorothy !- I vish I'd asked her my
self, though I perhaps after all it
wouldn't have made any difference.'
Jonathan Bruce had lived to the
age of forty-five without feeling the
darts of Cupidnd when he did fall
in lovej it was a serious business.
Dorpthy Dale had come to the old
farm-house toi earu her living. She
was a delicate?, lovely! girl of nineteen
with dark gray eyes, black hair, grow-
ingLlow upon her forehead, and a
fresh bloom like that of a peach. She
had first come to Lowmoor to try and
get, the place jof teacher in the district
school. But the trustees had their
particular favorite, and when the
spectacled Miss Keene was appointed
poor little Dorothy found herself pen
niless in a strange place.
'Whatcanldo?' she said, piteously.
'Miss Bruce wants a servant, sug
rested the landlord's wife. 'Ten dol-

after awhile may direct the tide of immi-

As to climate, the northwest is a most in
hospitable land. Emigrants learn as
much after they get there. The prairie
winds are terrific and tlie blizzards are
quite past endurance. There is scarcity

to all ithis the recurring inundations

which deenlv disconrasre and demoralize

sion is that "taken till in all, the middle

attractive ceuntry uuder the sun."
The New (York Tribune contains an
teresting article on the progress of
the wheat-growing industry. It 6b-
I serves that the wheat-growing industry
has been steadily moving West for more
than half a century. Western New York
and eastern Pennsylvania were once the
great wheat sections. Then Ohio had its
turn. (Now the counties of that State
which: forty years ago shipped large
quantities of wheat to the East do not
raise enough to supply their own popular
tion with bread. Afterwards Indiana,
Southern Michigan, Northern Illinois and
Wisconsin made wheat the chief crop, to
be succeeded by Iowa, an now by Miu
nesota. Nebraska end Dakota. The
belt cannot move much further
West.! It will soon reach the great gras
sy plains where there is not sufficient
rainfall for successful agriculture. Be
yond the Rocky Mouutaius, in Oregon
and Washington Tenitory, a new wheat
country of immense extent is being de
veloped ; but on the Atlantic side of tho
continent the area where wheat-farming

machinery by which the will of the o-
pie at the. ballot box is ascertained; The
office or position of .Congressman, is one
or law for its existencp. It is provided for
by - the constitution and laws of the TJuited
States. - Congress itself fixes the. number
of Representatives to which each State is
entitled and not .the States , themselves,
and Congress nowhere fixes the machine
ry for the States. For this reasou j the
States onlv Drovide for the election of
such - nnmber as Congress by its law gives
" eacn or sucu btates. if a person is
votcu ior at uie election lie must be a
a . . . a
candidate for an office recognized and
named in the election laws of our State,
For this reason every officer to which wo
have heretofore been entitled is mention
ed, and a ballot box provided in which
such officer is voted for. In our election
laws the State officers are mentioned by
name,' members of the General Assembly
are mentioned bit name, and bo with
county officers and a Congressman for
each district. Judges and Solicitors are
also provided for. Where is. there any
provision in our election machinery for
Congressman at large f He is not known
to the statute law of North Carolina.
Our election laws providing for the elec
tion of certain officers make provision
also for a ba Uot box to contain the votes
for each officer so named. Going still
further the law ia its certainty and par
ticularity directs the exact number 0 boxes
the county commissioners are to provide.
In order to ascertain the will of the peo
pie the county commissioners are to pro
vide boxes in which officers known to the
laws of North Carolina are to" beAroted
for. With the election laws as they now
are, what authority will the county com
missioners have for adding auothcr box
and appointing two Judges of election
more tli an the law authorizes them' to
dot Before the election and when they are
fixing tho receptacles for ballots they
take the statutes of the State as they are
I written. They doift go by what that
man sa3s or this mau says. They most
be governed by the late as enacted by our
Legislature. Now do the county commis
sioners know we are entitled to a Con
gressman at large. What law tells them
sot Who is to direct them to provide a
box for him t Who tells them how many
Judges they-are to appoint to preside
over a box they have 110 authority of law
for' opening? What tells-J hem whether
the Judges iru to be of diJiVreut political

What law says on what kind of

it be .on white or red paper t shall the
