Poets may sing of the odor of the fresh
turned earth, painters may show that the
old farm, with all its surroundings, is a
thing of beauty, politicians may prate
about the joys and independence of the
farmer, the political economist may prove
that the farmer is the backbone of the
nation, and with all that, farm life in our
state ia not attractive. One-half of our
most intelligent farmers would to-day
sell out their farms and engage in some
other occupation, if thev were sure of a
good living and a little more society for

there is little hope of distinction. Where

HOW TO BTT TREES.
In purchasing his groceries and drv
goods the farmer is getting to be as keen
and aa well informed as the needs of the
case demand. But in some lines of deal
ing he is still a little in the dark. Tins
is notably the cae in buying trees. He
till waits for the traveling agent, who
by his very presence doubles the jirii-e of
inestoca ne sens; wtio is uninformed,
irresponsHiIe, and who, loo often, is
anything but honcat, truthful and trust
worthy. From 80 to 30 per cent, cf the
price paia tor stocK so purchased, gof

times a single nursery will employ fifty
of these traveling eaWmcn. inn ing them

A train bound north over the St. Louis,
Arkansas & Texas Railway was stopped
by tares masked men ten miles from lex-
arkona and robbed. The express cat
was robbed, but the passengers and mail
were ttot molested. 11. P. Johnson, the
postal clork on duty at the time,says that
the train was suddenly stopped when
moving odt of Geneva Station. He saw
three rouh-looking men board the en
gine, and he knew something was wrong,
so he blew out the lights in Ibis compart
ment and locked the dooro. Tho express
messenger did the same, thing. The rob
bers were armed with Winchester rides
and couple of pistols each. They or
dered the doors to be opened and fired
several allots through the windows. They
then used a pickaxe and Johnson tired
one shot out through the window, which
was ansTered by a volley. Finding re
sistance, useless aud the lives of the en
gineer aad fireman at stake, the express
messenger opened his doors when a light
was struck and the search by the robbers
began. Johnson does not know accu
rately, but thinks the robbera must have
gotten $10,000. A good deal of Louisi
ana Lottery money in small denomina
tions wss taken, the leader of the rob
ben was much agitated tind the mail
olerk told him he was more seared than
he (Johnson) was. Johnson says that he
would know one of the men anywhere.
The conductor opened the door and was
fired on. There was a panic amoug the
passengers, who seemed paralyzed with
fear. After gutting the express car they
entered the mail car. Johnson exMtu
lated that that was Uncle Barn's domin
ion, and that they had already a good
deal of booty and if they disturlied the
mails it would go hard with them. They
said: "That ia so," and that they would
not touch the mails. Great excitement
prevails in the region of the robbery and
mounted men are scouring the woods
everywhere. After the robbery otliccra
wen soon on the ground, and two of
them had a running fight with the rob
ben for about a mile and a half. One
robber lost his hat and cartridge 1..
Another waa wounded, as shown by
blood along the trail.
