Farmlnff on Business Principles.
The articles which have appeared
recently iu the Southern Cultiva
tor and other agricultural journals
about how well farms do or do not j
pay, or what they might be made
to pay, and what they never would
pay, remind me of one special in-
stance of successful farming in ;
German. This in !
stance ot the success of an intelli
gent business man, on farms where
before him a number of practical
and '-scientific" farmers had failed.

or not ; and also convinces me that
the successful man must neither be
a purely practical nor theoretical
farmer, but that a practical, com
mon sense business head mnst be
his first requirement. Some ot
the 'ultivafor readers may say:
"Well, that may all be nice and
good in Europe, where labor is
cheap and provisions dear." T
this I can answer : That is true,
bnt it is more thau balanced by
two things : first, by the high price
of land ; second, by the peculiar
'way land has for generations been
subdived in middle Germany at the
death of an owner and intermixed
with that of other owners, so that
the extreme distance of pieces of
land ol" one farm of say 800 or 400
acres is quite frequently as much
as five or six miles, and makes the
use of farming implements quite
expensive, if not impossible, be
sides wasting the time in going to
and fro. Hut also the wages of
good farm hands are today not as
low as they used to twenty or thirty
years ago; the best steady men
get from 0 to 100 a year and
board, day laborers, at harvest
time, from sixty to seventy-five
cents per day, and in extreme times
even quite considerably more. Be
sides, boarding such hands here is
much cheaper than in Germany,
where beef is 111 rural districts
from fifteen centa upwards, mess
pork and bacon from twenty cents
upwards, etc. Now, when I com
pare the conditions over there with
those in America, the situation is
much in favor of the
United States. Nor is success,
like that of the party in question,
the rule, bnt rather the exception.
Though I know quite a numter of
farmers there who have done well,
I know a good many more who,
under more favorable circum
stances than those described above,
have been sitting thirty or forty
years on one and the same farm,
where the Lord would provide any
how, yet fbey are not a whit better
off today than on the day they
came there. They have just made
a living, some a very good one,
but nothing more. That Europe,
and especially Germany, has no
advantage over this country also
finds its proof in the fact that a
large percentage of the German
emigrants are farmers. rTot only
farm-hands, but men who used to
own their farms at home out and
out, but were unable to make a
living, and either sold out be
fore a collapse or were sold out
by their creditors. If in the United
States a farmer has his place clear,
nothing is as easv for him as to
make a living on it ; the indus
trious man will always make a
good living and lay something by
if he is very saving: the lazy man.
a living anyhow, m spite of his
indolence, It is sometimes most
astonishing how much time some
farmers have to whittle away at a
piece of wood, smoke their pipes or
have a talk with the neighbors, or
what is worse, to go fishing, hunt
ing or '-visiting," but how rarely
they get a chance to do a square
day's work'on their frrms ! Still
they live for all that! They may
look like '-rag-a-mufEns'' or scare
crows, but on closer inspection
they can yet be recognized as
human beings. While it is quite
easy to make simply a living on a
farm, to be really successful or
grow rich by farming, it requires
as much business tact in any
other pursuit. There as here it is
as the saying ot the old German
proverb which I will try to trans
late, "Uow 1 care so I fare."

Mr. Piram M. Russell of 'arteret
county, is a.'i years old, is he says,
the 13th child of his parents, and
he has in his possession some very
old and interesting historical relics,
handed down to hiuf from his an
cient ancestors. First he has the
will of his groat grandfather, whose
name was Habicuk Russell, and
died in 17o2; a shotgun bought by
the same in 1770; a long single bar
rel brass mounted tlint and stell
lock, whole stocked, and from looks
a No. 1 gun now; pocket book, ac
count book, pepper gourd, spice
gourd and white oak split basket
belonging at first to these aged
people, and kept in good order
now by the present owner. Mr. P.
M. Russell has the population of
the county of carteret, and amount
of taxes, &c. of 1802 as follows:
447 white and 295 black poll; poll
tax $100 per head; 130.095 acres of
land taxed 453.65; Beaufort town
property tax 55.15, and lots of
other old relics and papers belong
ing to these ancient people. Mr.
R.'s maternal great-grandfather
was named John Melson, whose
son Edmond, Mr. Russell's grand
father, lived near the mouth of
New river in 1815 at which time
the gTeat storm of that year nearly
drowned all of Mr. Melson's family,
he saving himse'f by getting on
top of some pieces of timber and
floating np New river several miles.
This was afterwards called the

The Power of Influence.
Do we any of us realize the power
which we possess, either for good
or bad the influence which every
one of us yields'? I some times
think not. because if we did, I am

How Wood Pnjier is .Made.

where paper is made from wood, I
and in this mill there is a machine ,
resembling in appearance a largo !

tel. standing on its edge. In this'
cheese box there revolves, at an
enormous speed, a stiong iron disk. 1
armed with a great number of sharp
steel knives, which cuts up the wood
into shavings similiar to those made
by a draw knife. While we were
looking at this machine an attend
ant picked up a heavy stick of cord

where they are boiled for several
hours in caustic soda '-soda lye"
which combines with all the resi
nous matters in the wood, and re
duces it lo a meie fibrous pulp.
This pulp is next run into the
washing machines.-' which are
oval tubs about fifteen feet king and
six or eight feet wide, having a
longitudinal partition in the middle,
extending nearly the entire length
of the vat. In one of the compart
merits thus formed there is a
-'beater," composed of a number of
steel blades with rounded edges,
which revolve at a rate of speed be
tween stationary blades in the bed
plated lu low. In the other coin
partment there is a -iwasher,"
which consists of an octahedral
frame covered with very tine w ire
guaze, and inclosing a sort of water
wheel. The water runs in the op
posite direction to the beater, but
very slowly, and the result is a
constant current of the pulp up one
side of the machine and down the
other. A stream of water is con
stantly scooping it up ami empty
ing it through its hollow shaft. The
beater forces all the foreign matter
out of the pulp, and the washer ie
moves the dirtv water, so that the
fiber becomes thoroughly cleansed.
It is now removed to another ma
chine similar to the first, where it
is bleached by means of chloride ot
rime and muriatic acid. Tl e
washer is dispensed with
during the bleaching. After
the bleaching comes another
washing, to remove the chemicals
from the fibers, and the pulp,
thoroughly softened and mixed with
water, is drawn oil' into storage
tanks, whence it is pumped into the
paper machines. At one end of the
latter is a box into which the pulp
is pumped from the tanks. This
box has a fine horizontal slit, from
which the pulp flows in a steady
stream on to an endless wire gauze
apron, about six feet wide, which
is constantly running away from
the box. The rolls over which this
apron runs have an '-end shake"
similar to that of a grain separator.
The apron runs over a copper "sue
tion box-" having numerous holes
in the top from which the air water
are constantly be exhausted. The
effect of the suction box is to re
move most of the remaining water
from the pulp, which by this time
resembles a wet sheet of paper.
The damp sheet is now taken up
by a felt blanket and carried over
steam heated drums. By this
time the paper is strong and dry
enough to support itself, so it
leaves the felt and passes unaided
between the highly polished calen
der rolls, which smooth it and give
it a hard surface. It is now rolled
up ready to be removed to the cut
ting machine, where revolving
knives reduce it to sheets, which

Scott couutv, Virginia, on
the line of the South Atlantic and
Ohio Railroad, fifty miles from its
junction with the Norfolk and
Western Railroad at Bristol, Tenn.,
is the most wonderful curiosity east
of the Sierras. It is 0G3 ieet'loug,
varying from 75 to 130 leet in
width, and of equal height. It
comprises a natural bridge, with an
arch of stone over 400 feet thick, a
cave of wondrous beauty and grandeur-,
and a tunnel, through which
tlow the waters of Scott creek, a
respectable river in size. The ap
proach to this remarkable tunnel
is especially grand. Eor several
hundred yards have cut out a
canon, with overhanging walls over
400 feet high. Mosses, litchens
ami dwarfed cedars cling to its
rocky sides, while forest trees the
branches of which overhanging
form an emerald fringe, through
which the blue skv with its fleecy
clouds are seen, framing a picture
once seen is never to be forgotten
The roof of the wonderful cave or
tunnel is formed of massive Gothic
arches resting upon gigantic irreg
ular pillars standing upon either
side. The South Atlantic and
Ohio Railroad passes through this
natural wav. Roanoke (Ya.)
The Society of Ladies. Clubs
ire not good schools of manners.
To acquire the true grace tact of
conversation young men must lre-
juent the society of intelligent
women. A noted author, who was
asked recently why he was not
oftener seen at clubs, replied that
his favorite club was his library, to
whicbbelonged Shakespeare, Dante,
Homer and all the great men of old,
aud that when he felt the need ol
living society he preferred that of
ladies, w ho never asked him to take
a drink, and who had something to
tell more interesting thau dubious
stories and second hand gossip.
He showed good sense and good
taste in this answer. We
see by Thackeray's letters,
lately published, that he was of the
same opinion, though he did not
always live up to it.
During a thunderstorm this
season iu the Department of the
Orne in Trance, incandescent
stones, of grayish color and some of ,
them as large as walnuts, fell from
the clouds in large quantities. '
THE CYMKIC CHIEF.
In old Snowdonia8 realm of clouds,
where narrow winding trails
Thread through Caernarvon's moun
tain peaks and 'mid the hills of Wales;
Upon a high and beetliDg crag, far out
above the flood.
In lone gone years of storm and etrife
a massive castle stood.
And he who owned its rugged towrr,
its acres, and its tiels
Was boldest of the iron hearts among
the Cymric chiefs.
No voice like his the angry waves of
turbulence could tame.
No stronger arm when Sttxun hordes
across the border came:
No deadlier sword in tourney ihitihed.
no spear so quick to start
And find in battle's whirl a sheath in
some foeman s heart:
His lances led in every fray, his hunts
man's echoing trills
In chase led on the bohieet hearts among
Caernarvon 's hills.
Yet in the steel and
old warlike race
iron hearts of this
A thread of gold wound in
with manv a softer grace:
For kind were they to friend
and every vassal knew
Their loves were never lightly
but knightly and most true;
The gentlest maiden loved by
could with her lvurs tame
The boldest of those dauntless
who bore I.lewelvn's name.
vears passed on; they lived and
luvcd, they conquered and they died,
And for a century they stemmed the in
vading Saxon tide:
But still the hordes came rurhing on in
numbers like th sea.
Outnumbered, thinned, the Iinton
bands were oft compelled to rise:
Tbough struggling fiercely for ih. ir
land against o'erwhelming fate:
The S.ixon warriors surged at l.t.-t
around LI wely n 's gate.
For ye;ii. the c: . ieft:-ti :i l.oid hi own.
the eat;le Kept his ri(-rt.
And proudly nvnl his h;tmiei s still
upon the mountain's crest:
But hunger c I iitched each vassal 's heart
with cold and chilling bands.
While dart and epirir had fadly thinned
the hraveet of his bands;
Though struggling sternly through the
years the die was surrly cast,
'iY.e e:gle's dyne on its crag must be
i. . r. p. a ltd t last.
Turn pdee the chieftain to his foe:
"l'roiert my child and wife,
dive e.jch poor vassal the right to live,
and take my worthless life."'
Hut stern the Saxon's answer came:
'thy men shall harmless go,
But thou, bold chief, thy wifeand child
belong unto thy foe:
Here is my pledge for all thy men. thy
wife belongs to me,
Whilst thou within my dungeon keep a
fettered slave shalt be!"
Then out upon the trembling air rang
out Llewelyn's call :
i'uick wife and child sprang to his side
upon the castle wall,
With ringing tones he bade his men
I throw each gate open wide,
j Then turning swiftly kissed his wife
! and daughter at his side;
Quick flashed his falchion through their
hearts, and ere the startled foe
Recovered, he had raised their forms
and hurled them far below.
Than spake the warrior once again : "Oh
brave but cruel foe.
Thou 'It keep thy pledges for my men in
sanctity I know ;
But rever yet did foe despoil the wives
And death but once again unites the
eagle and the dove.
Thy dungeon chains were never meant
for such a one as I;
The Cymric chieftain dreads thy bonds,
but does not fear to die. "
Then with a war cry on his lips, and
eyes which fiercely flashed,
He turned toward the dizzy cliff and
o'er its rampart dashed :
But as he fell, they watched and saw,
with 'stonished lips apart,
His trusty blade was swiftly drawn and
plunged into his heart.
The waves bore off the silent group,
couched on their watery bed,
Amid the silence of the crowd who
watched them overhead,
And never has the sea given up Llewe
lyn and his dead.
The castle stands in ruin now, and si
lence most profound,
Except the moaning of the sea, the
wind's unceasing sound,
W'here Gwalia's watching mountain
crests are circled all around.
A truthful story. One of those time-tried
and thrilling tales.
Which still descend from sire to son
among the homes of Wales.

THE SILVER FLUTE.
sighed little Hans, as he
covered with the wet,
heavy llakes ot snow, which were
drifting dowu through the night
upon the city. "Ah! if I had but
such a flute as I saw in the shop
window to-night all silver, moth
er, with metal keys ! And how the
light shone upon it !
Hans pulled off his ragged muffler
and his well-worn cap, and sat
down at the little table where his
mother was cutting the half-loaf of
broad, and pouring the tea-pot
' Poor Hans !" she said softly
"The child might have made a
great player like his father, if he
had had but a little chance. Alas
what a terrible thing it is to be
poor! How much did thou earn
today, my boy !
Hans smiled happily, as he re
plied, "Guess !''
"Was it was it a dollar ."' asked
the pale, little Uerman woman, as
she looked eagerlv into the bov's
"A dollar !'' reiterated Hans,
contemptously, "and so much snow
in the streets. Look at this!" He
drew a handful of shining quarters
from hrs pocket, and flung them
merrily upon the table.
"One two three four five
six seven counted the little
mother. "O Hans, my brave boy,
a dollar and seventy-five cents
Almcst as much as a grown man
would have earned. I am proud of
thee!" Hans laughed until the
brown curls tumbled down upon
his white loretieaa. He was a
handsome boy, and so like his
father. "1 might have earned
another one still,'' he cried, "if it
had not been for the beautiful
music in the big brown house. Ah,
mother ! but it took an hour to
clean the snow from the sidewalk
there. And, then, seeing the
beautiful silver flute in the shop
window on my way home, I have
had such a happy thought !"
The mother's eyes filled with
tears; and she looked back through
the years, and saw another faee
crowned with the white brow, and
the clustering brown curls and re
membered another voice so like
saying, "(Jn-, 1 tiave nad such a
happy, happy day ! ' But that was
so long ago; ana tney were just
married, and had been to the Grand
Opera. And Hans, the father, had
had an offer to play the flute in the
new German orchestra at fury dol
lars thiuk of it ! fifty dollars a
week. Those were wonderful days.
And Hans had said : "Gretchen.
if we ever get poor like mice, we must
never sell the llute. It has been
the making of us.' '
But death had come, even be
fore the blue-eyed boy was born :
iTirl Hie wolf hntvleil :t tliA dnnr :
and the fire was dead in the little, "The brave fellow!" exclaimed

and the poor, pale woman lay on j you gentlemen, I trust, will call at
the bare couch with the little one, j my house tomorrow, No125
and held out the silver
llute with i
her trembling hand.
"O my God," she sobbed,
" if. I
must be done ! Take it, and bring
me the money, and I will pay you.
O Hans," she wept, aa the cruel
landlord snatched it greedily from
her hand, and ran down the
rickety stairs: "() my husband in
heaven, forgive me ! I would not
have done it but for our little one."
The rent was paid ; and a lew
little comforts for the sick woman
were wrung from the landlord, in
return for the trifle over which he
claimed to have received for the
precious silver flute. A few days
lire burned in the little stove,
and kept them warm, and there
was bread, and water for a week
and more. And, then, the little
woman grew stronger, and the
spring days were beginning to
come on ; and so they lived. But
the little Hans had a dreary time
ot it. tied in his cradle alone all the
day long. And how hungry he
was when the tired mother came
ruuning home in the evening, poor
little child ! But what could she
do? She could not take Haas with
her : for who would have an extra
baby in the house when wages were
iu be paid, aud work done It
was a painful thing to think of
her baby all alone in the dingy,
cheerless room, with nothing to
brighten the long hours, hungry,
cold, and lonesome; but it was
better- than starvation, better than
separation. And there
ways hope of better days.
And, uow that Hans was
up, and couldearn anttle something j
for himself, the times were not so j
hard. Still, the mother sorrowed for j
the boy, with his high aspirations;
wedded to his well nigh hopeless
lot. It made her heart ache to
hear him talk about his love for
music. How she longed to send '.
him to the conservatory. Hosv she
wished that she were strong as iu
days gone by, that she might pro
vide food and raiment lor both .
while Hans pursued the study j
ot his beloved art. But it could j
not be. It needed their combined I
efforts to keep the wolt from the j
door ; and, even then, it was a con- j
stant struggle, with the odds some
times in favor of the wolf, from
year's end to year's end. !

knowledge of music in his leisure
moments as, indeed, a lad of his
tastes and talents could scarcely
help doing. He had an old,
cracked, single keyed, woodeu Mute,
which he had bought for a dollar
at a pawnbroker's shop ; and, al
ready, the ambitions lad was play
ing snatches from the operas, and
popular bits from orchestral scores.
He had some scraps of pretty airs
in his flute manual, too, and was
rapidly learning to read and play
quite difficult passages with skill
and expression. His darling am
bition was to have a real Boehm
flute, and play in an ochestra as
his father had done before him.
When Hans came home with the
story of the silver flute, his mother
had not thought, at first, so much
about that. Her thoughts were
more upon her boy than upon his
story. But, in the night, as she
lay waiting for sleep, it came over
her suddenly like a flash that the
silver flute which Hans had seen in
the shop window might, perhaps,
be the very flute which her hus
band had entrusted to her care
with his dying breath. She had
often longed to know what had be
come of it, often dreamed of some
time finding it again, though it had
long since passed, as she learned,
from the hands of the pawnbroker
to whom her landlord had carried
She could hardly sleep a wink all
night, so excited was she. In the
morning, she proposed to Hans
that they go together and look at
the wonderful silver flute. As they
approached the window, the heart
beat so that she could hardly
breathe. "There it is!" cried HaDS
delightedly. "Oh. isn't it beauti
The little woman pressed her face
close against the pane. Ha! the
mark on the key ! Hans's mark ! It
is it is the very same! A little
cry of wonder and delight escaped
her lips, which Hans took for ad
miration. "Is it not a beautiful
flute?" he cried. "O mother if
we only had the money to buy it !'
It was a very, very cold night
but Hans could not resist the temp
tation of stopping on his way home
to look just once more at the lights
shining on the wonderful silver
flute. As he stood there, with his
hands in his pockets, so wrapped
in admiration and longing that he
hardly felt the piercing cold, there
came a cry : "Kunawav, runaway
Mans turned quickly, and saw a
horse and carriage dashing down
the almost deserted street. As it
came closer, he could see that the
only occupant of the carriage was
a beautiful little girl. She was
clinging to the seat, as the furious
horse dashed on, looking out, with
a white, scared face, like a face of
marble. There were strong men
standing near Hans, but not one
oi them stirred, ine horse was
going at frightful speed. It was a
terrible thought, to cast one's life
at his feet. But Hans did not hesi
tate. He did not even stop to
think. The impulse came upon
him, and he obeyed it without a
It was all over in less than a
minute. The reins of the flying
steed were dragging on the ground;
and Hans had caught them bv a
flying leap, as the runaway dashed
past. He was thrown violently to
the ground, and dragged over the
cobble stones for several rods; but
still the plucky, little fellow held
on, and succeeded in so lar check
ing the speek of the runaway that
a dozen stalwart men caught him
by rein and bit, and forced him to
a standstill. Then they picked up
little Hans. For a moment, he was
quite stunned, and stared wildly
about him. Blood was trickling
from beneath his clustering brown
curls, and his shabby clothes were
nearly torn from his bruised little
Just then, a cab dashed up at full
peed, and a gentleman jumped
out. "My child: ' he cried: "is she
safe!" In an instant, the little
girl was folded in his arms, and he
was showering kisses on har pallid
face. "But what is this!'' he asked
suddenly, his eye falling upon littie

some households the youngsters
are scarcely permitted to speak

wrong. In the family parlor, as in
the commonwealth, there should be
freedom of speech. Children should
be encouraged to express, in a mod

their parents, and to come to them
for advice and connsel in all their
difficulties and dilemmas. If this
course is pursued; they will not be
likely to take any serious steps in
