Editor ,Ii ri.v.i.: Before retir

quest to give a more definite ac
count of my farm records and their
utility and satisfaction. For five
years or more I have not tailed to
carefully note every important
transaction in connection with the
preparation of my lands planting
the crops t heir cul t i vat ion -growt h
and production with an itemized
account of expenses kept against
each separate crop, which deducted
at the close of the year from the
value of the crops, enables me to
see what my time and investments
have paid. I apply this system of
accounts to my saw-null, grist mill,
gin and store. In no other way
could 1 positively know what sys
tem of (arming is best, or what
piece of property pays me most. J
Beside, I make it a rule to experi-i
and was beaten. Soon after the
last election demonstrated that the
Senate was Republican, his tall,
angular tigure was seen here as
Mahone's oandidate for Serjeant-at-Arms.
Of course. C'anaday had to deny
all Sherman proclivities when he
made his trade with Mahone, who
in this transaction represented
himself anl the Administration in
part. The bargain was that Canaday
should be elected, and in return
secure a delegation from his State
that would co-operate with the
Mahone delegation from Virginia.
With one of Arthur's Cabinet who
contributed most to ( 'anaday's elec
tion the bargain was an Arthur
'delegation. What their trade was
with Logan I do not know, but I do
know that some of the Union sol
diers are kicking like Government
mules because Logan voted for an
ex-Confederate in preference to a
Union soldier like Hooker.
The capture of this delegation
was to be only the first oft 'anaday's
achievements, lie has also agreed
to deliver the electoral vote of
North Carolina to the Republican
candidate for President, to have
himself elected Governor of the
State and to come, back to the Sen
ate, not as a servant of that body,

The Nihilist.-, are reported to be

the liussian Government by the

the authorities would take cogniz

there would be visited upon such
an ungrateful son a punishment

The daughters are exempt from
such punishment by reason of their
being legally a member of an en-'

These are some of the reasons
why daughters are not so much

many of the other.
