FAREWELL TO SUMMER.
Thou art slowly, sadly dying.
Fairest queen thy end is near .
Hear the low, soft zephrys sighing.
Mourning thee. Bo loved, so dear
Nature eeemeth cold and dreary.
Droop the Mower in their woe.
As if they of life were weary,
I-ongirg far with thee to go.
Autumn's sad. cold face is peering
At Lhee as thou lyest low;
In her jealous heart half fearing
I hou would at linger and not go
Hark! the low wind's mournful
Tis. alas, thy funeral knell
In the Wetst the light is dying.
Glorious queen, farewell ! farjwell
I'pon the meadows, far and wide,
A silvery frozen mantel lay;
And on the upland mountain aide
Froet glistened in the dawn of day
Winter was nigh.
The farmer paused in early liht.
His rucgd face was marked by care;
Amid his locks wero lines of white.
For Nature, too, had frosted there

1)11) SHE SM II (.OV. KORAKEUJ
Different Verions of Mrs. ( leveland's
Neglect to Shake Hands with Him,
Washington, Sept. 1. The
President declined to discuss the
subject of the alleged snubbing of
Gov. Koraker by himself and .Mrs.
Cleveland, in Philadelphia yester
day, and Col. Lamont said he knew
nothing about it. He had not
heard that the Cevernor of Ohio
had been treated any differently by
the President from the Governor
of other States who were present in
Philadelphia. The report that
Gov. Foraker had been snubbed by
Mrs. Cleveland was not believed
when it was first received hero.
Several members of Gov. Foraker 's
staff, who passed through Washing
ton on their way home, say they
believe Gov. Foraker was snubbed,
whether Mrs. Cleveland intended I
it as such or not. This version of
the affair is given by an eye wit
It was at Mrs. Cleveland's recep
tion in the afternoon. Gov. and
Mrs. Foraker were presented first
to the President, who shook hands
with them. They were then pre
sented to Mrs. Cleveland, the latter
simply bowing without extending
her hand. What made this marked
was that Mrs. Cleveland shook
hands witb the gentlemen who
preceded Mr. Foraker, and also
that she gave her hand to Gov.
Foraker's Adjutant, who followed
him. Gov. Foraker's friends be
lieve the slight was intentional.
Others say that in the crush of the
reception it was more than prob
able that Mrs. Cleveland did not
notice who was before her. and was
innocent of administering an inten
tional snub. There is no complaint
that the President snubbed Gov.
Philadelphia, Sept. IS. Re
garding the published reports that
Mrs. Cleveland refused to shake
hands with Gov. Foraker, of Ohio,
at the reception on Friday night,
one of the best-known of Philadel
phia editors said last night :
It is hardly possible that Mrs.
Cleveland should have selected that
pl-iee and time for exhibiting her
contempt for Gov. Foraker. The
crush was great, long lines of peo
ple had been standing for two
hours and the floor managers were
auxiens to get the business through.
For that reason word was passed
along the line, 'Don't stop to shake
hands with the President, but move
on.' Gov. Hill, of New York, had
this injunction whispered into his.
ear, and had he heeded it a scandal ,
woold certainly have resulted. I
myself saw Mrs. Cleveland stop as
if to rest her hand while several ;
persons past-ed before her. It was
natural enough. Ten thousand
hands were in that building to press
that one hand. Human nature
could hardly stand it. She had to
rest. It may have been at one of
these periods that Gov. Foraker
passed. I think you will tind that
if the iucideut really occurred it
was under the circumstances I have '
mentioned. Mrs. Cleveland is re
nowned for her tact and good nature
and is too enlightened a woman to
descend to Gov. Foraker's level bv
snubbing him while he was acting
i as the chief officer oi the State ot
One thing is certain, Mrs. Cleve
land did not shake hands with
Ohio's Governor, and she is the
only person who can tell why she
did not. There were scores of
others with whom she did r.ot shake
hands. She was probably fatigued
and made r.o extra effort to be af
fable to Gov. Foraker. but treated
him like others to whom she did
not extend her hand. As a rule
she shook hands with only special
persons after the officers of the
army and navy passed eaily in the
evening. New Yoik World.

two thirds ed" which was corn and

that his loss is due to incendi.irism :
but whether he suspects any one or
has any evidence the reporter did
not learn. The Southerner still
adheres to its estimate of the cot
ton crop fifteen per cent, less than
the average. The faimeis, though,
those who have brought cotton to
the cotton y.tid, are almost unani
mous that the crop is twenty per
cent, short. They mav be light
and the Southerner may be wrong,
but until more parts of the county
are heard from we can't change.

have been received that no one can
tell even whether the mps w

worth of ensilage to the acre, which

not our farmers raise com and
at the same time enrich their

corn. He has about six acres of
corn, planted after his pea crop,
which he is cutting now, aud he
thinks his crop worth at least

plowed twice and never hoed at all.
It is easy to be seen, therefore,
what a snug little profit there is to

FARMS AND FARMERS.
Short Talks With the Men Who Guide
1 TOM LANDS,
it was suggested that
oarrie.nio ne estaoiisneu across
bottoms Ui, it were scoured by heavy
rams. To save labor and econo-
l.inn. it wia rppnm.
these be placed at
narrow places across bottoms.
Supposing there are no narrow
places what should regulate dis
tance between barricades. The
rule for terracing would fipoiv
viz., at such distances ap.ai that
theie shall be a difference of three
fwet in level. The final effect of
these barricades is in fact to terrace
the bottoms, and gradually to raise
them higher and higher above the
bottom of the stream. One obvious
result would be therefore to mak
the bottom dryer. In fact barri
cading might be "used to elevate
wet bottoms and convert them into
dry ones, susceptible of cultivation.
The barricades should be built high
enough to check the flow of water
very decidedly, to bring it almost
to a standstill, except along the
course of the stream. It is a slight
checking of velocity that causes de
posits ol sand and gravel the wa
ter must be brought almost to a
standstill before the finer materials
will be deposited, and it is the lat
ter which make rich soils. As the
terracing process becomes linihed
the water of a freshet which spreads
out on each side of the stream,
resting upon a ievd surface, loses
its motion almost entirely and is
gradually drawn off as the stream
lads. To prevent, therefore, bot
tom lands from being covered up
by depo.its of sand, the overflowing
water must be, not slightly, but
thoroughly checked in its velocity,
so that line material as well as
coarse may be deposited together
instead of the coarse alone being
thrown down, and the finer carried
on farther down the stream.
The sides of the main ditch may
need some protection where a bar
ricade juts against it. This can be
supplied by cutting two narrow
ditches 10 or 12 feet long at right
angles to bank, and the width of
barricade from each other, and
then framing heavy logs in these
ditehes and along side of bank be
tween ditches, that is like the two
sides and one end of a log bouse,
the end forming the bank of the
stream at that point. When it is
considered how valuable a good
piece of bottom land is, one is justi-
hed in spending a good deal to
develop its full capacity and protect
it from injury. An acre of good
bottom land wili yield as much as
four or five of ordinary upl nd and
one might lose three out of five i
crops on the former and yet get as
much as he would on the five acres
of the latter. Never leave any open
ditch,, except the main one, in a
piece of bottom land. Open ditches ,
call for labor every spring to clean I
them out and clear offtheir banks,
and besides take away from culti-'
vation a strip eight or ten leet wide 1
to each ditch. One cannot afford
to lose so much valuable land. The
loss in a few years from these
sources would pay even for laying
down tiles, which last for a life
It is on bottom lands that the
intensive system of farming may be
pushed to its last degree. Bv indi-
cious manuring such lands might '.
be kept continuously under crops
Oats sown in antumn might be fol
lowed early in June with corn; and
oats sown again at the laying by of
corn would perpetuate the rotation.
As such soils are rarely deficient
in humus, they do not need nitro
genous manures; phosphates and
kainit will meet all ordinary de
mands. In truth, the land would
suffer less under such a programme
than the customary one of being
planted every year in corn without

offsets and compensations are met

part well. In the case of bottom

of main ditch from caving or wash
ing away by proper sloping and
judicious breakwaters. Manure
and cultivate well; rotate crops
upon them. Keep off stock. With

required to perfect the law and
make it effective.
4. It declared in favor of influ

as private individuals are concerned,
.-he must be c intent to etand on the

best bargain that she can, if necessity
should force her too often to hard bar
gains, she would be in no worse plight
than her brothers. Legislation mutt
never undertake to make contracts for
any bod jr who are -able to contract them

laws commensurate in remedy for pri
vate justice and oppn ssion, would be
an unmitigated curse to everybody, and
an utter failure in purpose.
But there is legislation to which wo
man is entitled, and which she ought to
have to the fullest extent. No State
can afford to be dishonest or unjust, and
so far as State employees are concerned,
any discrimination against women
should be fully guarded againBt by
strict and stringent law. Wherever she
performs services for the State in any
capacity, her pay should have no refer- ;
er.ee to her sex. but should bo governed
solely by the valu? of tho services. In '

NORTH CAROLINA WANTS MEN.
STATEMENT Ol" ITS VALt'AIII.E RESOURCES
AND THE OPPORTUNITIES IT OFFERS.
The State of North Carolina haa a
grievance. It thinks that its advan
tages as a permanent home, its attrac
tiveness as a fcummer resort, its rich
ness as a repository of mineral wealth,
and its adaptability to all the demands
which agriculture forestry, mining or
manufacturing can make upon it, hare
been ignored too long, and it has gotten
up a ' boom" to counteract this slight
and give the State the industrial im
portance to which it is entitled. With
this end in view the State has estab
lished a Bureau of. Immigration at
Raleigh, with branch oflices at various
points in the North. One of these is
at No. 22 Dey street, and is under the
direction of F. K. McAllister. This
gentleman aud his manager, N."W.
Schenck, have made a special study of
the resources of North Carolina, and in
the course of a conversation with a
Tribune reporter Mr. McAllLter spoke
of them a8 follows:
' North Carolina is spar.-ely settled
and it is a strange fact that, although it
is three times as largo as Massachusetts,
its largest city, Wilmington, boasts of
only 20,00 i) inhabitants This is due to
thi fact that the State has been practi
cally inaccessible to the railways until
recently, and it was only in 1880 that
the vast western portion of the State
was opened up by a railway. In the
matter of climate it is especially well
provided, since there are no less than
four distinct e iimatos, with all the va
riety ef natural products incidental to
each. The advantages of this arrange
ment aie evident and give the State
excellent opportunities Ur producing
great varieties of cureals aud fruits,
lhe Stite ii rich Li natural products of
all kinds and its v lrietios of timber
trees are aim out numberless. As re
gards its water power, it is a remark
able fact that a:i estimate by tho State
geologist goes to t-how that North Caro
lina has in its waterfalls more horse
power than is contained in the steam
engines of every kind employed in tbe
L'oited States. "
K ft rring to lhe m i nei al s of llieState,

these attractions tho State is poor, be
cause it wants men farmers, artizans,
manufacturers. thrifty, industrious
workmen of all kinds. It would be a
paradise for tho new American party,
because the last census shows that of all
the States North Carolina has the larg
est native born population and the
smallest foreign element. The price of
land ranges from S3 to 850 per acre and
is being rapidly taken up by an enter
prising people." New York Tribune.
