Talk With the Men Who
WASTE FBnM THE BARN YAK U.
Under the most carelul ai ranre
ment and management some in a
nunal matter is unavoidably car
l ried off by rams from the bam
! yard. Though animals be kept in
stalls there is always some waste
i about the lot, some droppings,
some wateage in cleaning out the
stalls, some scattered provender is
generally present, in short, a barn
iyard is never a very clearr place,
land here want of eleanliness means
I manure. Where animals are con
Sued in open lots the loss of mauure
matter is obviously much greater.
aud still the problem how to save
it becomes verv important. If the
lot is sloping tbe manure ladcu
ntter runs down hill, finding it,'
way into some gulley or hollow and
thence into streams, ami it is lost,
but is tLere a neces-ity ; cannot
the water be checked and made to
deposite its treasures on its way !
The most obvious arrangement to
bring this to pass, is to have a grass
or grain patch immediately below
the lot and have the water tlow
over it. This arrangement is often
seen, but is generally defective in
two important points : the water
is allowed to choose its own path,
aud 1 usually concentrated on a
very limited portion of the patch ;
the other, no contrivances are
present to check the velocity of the
water and allow the soil to get its
valuable coutents. The tirst may
be obviated by building a low dam
at bottom of lot, the top of the dam
to be level so the water will not
run over at one place, but along its
whole leDgth in a thin continuous
sheet, or else openings made in the
dam. aud the water discharged
8rst at one ioint and then another
By such contrivances every portion
of the pau-h would get so:ne of the
But one point would still remain
unguarded; tbeie is nothing to
check the velocity of the waterand
it might run over the land so
rap'.uly as to leave little of is ma
nunal elements behind. This may
be met -by terracing the lot. In
such case U would be well to coin
plete the terracing at once, using a
hillside plow, ruu often enough to
bring the surlace of each strip to
a level. This done, the water from
above woald tarry long upon the
land. A goodly portion would be
absorlx-d and all solid matter would
t3 deposited. Comparatively little
would escape if the sloe hail any
length. We commend this plan to
the reader. It is simple and inex
pensive. It will supply a large
snrouut ol forage or of graziug at
tne most convenient point. It will
not detract anything from the com
post heap, for all which would thus
te saved, is now practically lost,
it is a leakage only that we propose
to stop; nothing more.
But suppo-e the baruyard is so
located that a grass or gram patch
cannot be had below it. In that
event the drainings from the yard
can be conveyed in a ditch to some
u)iut at a distance aud disposed of
in the same manner on a lot located
there. The water from a ditch,
discharged a little distance above a
horizontal dam will spread out and
- flow over the latter in a broad con
tinuous sheet down to lot below.
In this case a second ditch, just
above that from the yard, must be
provided, to prevent raiu water
other than that from the yard get
ting into the yard ditch, and the
grass lot likewise must be protect
ed from water Mowing down the
slop" above it. A little planning
mill meet the requirements of each
individual case. Rich grazing or
soiling lot are of ;nestimable value
on the farm, especially in the early
spring, when animals crave green
lood. The above is a cheap, simple
plan providing them.
But one is not limited to such
lots as described above. It is well
to have those kinds, and those who
do not would do well to plan and
arrange for them at once. In their
absence, however, select a nice,
clean, rich piece of land, at most
convenient dace on the faim. and
sow it down at once in rye. Don't
say it ia too late. You can make
np for that by manuiing, just as
you can push np a pig by high feed
ing, and make him weigh L'OO

The Discipline of School.
I: is pleasant to see the care that
is now taken by our best teachers
to have 'heir pupils conform to the
niceties of discipline. Much de
pends upon having all things in
school done decently and in order
the coming in, the going iu, the
sitting down, the rising up. Chil
dren, with all their natural im
patience of restraint, soon come to
relish and approve the discipline
of a gentle and resolute teacher,
lively thoughtful parent will assent
cordially to the recent remark of
Bishop Huntington, that "the
whole apparatus of education, from
top to bottom, fails unless it chastens
and molds the mind to orderly
met hods.' ' Fxchange.
An act oy which we make one
fr iend and one enemy is a losing
game, because revenge is a much
strong principle than gratitude.

that you desire to lu lp un to get the
road that we can tra le i:h your city
and visit you more frequently, and
with your good fcho.jls some of us can

doubtless a score of others but

I believe one great cause i'ur much of

But cow the times have materially
changed p.od unless we keep up with
the rapid strides being made by other
sections of the country we: cannot hold

He found the Senator su.'Te- in from
a cut on the top of his head, abojt three
inches in length and reach. n to the
bone. Some small arteries had been
cut and there was cocslderab'e effusion
of b.ood. There was no ot -er -'o jury to
his pe-son. and after the wound was
dressed the patient was kept in a com
fortable condition with little apprehen
sion of subsequent unfavorable symp
toms. As to the cause of the acclJcL. Sen

drawn by two horres alona: the narrow
road leading to his residence on tbe
north bank of the Swannauoa i ver. a

point of the road where the sil.ng was

met in the road, and Senator Vance

. Why - he County Commissioners Shop'
Sell the Conn y Slock in the
Atomic k y. C. R. R.
Edi;or Joukna:- Why the county
commissione! s should hesitate for a
moment to adopt Commissioner Brin
son's resolution, or a similar one with
me same object, to sell the county stock
in the A. & N. C. R. R. and apply the
proceeds of said sale to the erection of
a free bridge across the Neuse river,
cannot be conceived. Has the stock in
said road paid the county any dividends'.-'
No! Is there any prospect in 1
th? near or remote future of its doing
soV We think not. Then what reason
able objection can the commissioners or
the taxpayers of the county have for
refusing to sell, especially when the
present prospects bid fair to get a gxd
price considering the condition of the
road, ine Journal has given many
good reasons why a bridge over the
Iseuso should be built and has shown
conclusively the many benefits that
would be derived bv the increase of
I facilities for reaching New Berne from
the north side of the Neuse. Beside all
of these, Mr. Editor, I think justice and
fairness towards a large portion of our
citizens should prompt our authorities
to move in this matter. The taxpaying
residents of the north Bide of Neuse
river are entitled to some consideration
from the county. They have been taxed
to build bridge after bridge for the con
venience of the citizens living on the
south side of Trent river, not a single
objection have they ever raised against
this tax. Besides having to pay their
pvopo:tion of this tax they are com
pelled to pay an additional tax ;. fer
riage when compelled to attend court
or yisit New Berne. Is this light or
just'.- At one time a much larger pro
portion of our citizens lived on the
north side of Neuse river than lived on
the south side of Trent. Since the es
tablishment of Pamlico county the pop
ulation is about equal, but the valuation
of property and the amount of taxes
paid the county is still largely in favor
of the north side of the Neuse. The
total valuation of property listed for
taxes in Nos. 1 and 2 townships is
82s6.507, while Nos. 5. 6 and 7 town
ships south of Trent river is only 8235,
022, including 53t town lots in James
City. You will see from this that those
living north of the Neuse have always !
and do now pay the moet taxes. We :
think that no portion of our taxpaying
citizens will object to this movement.
It will not necessitate any increase in
taxes. Justice and fairness towards
mat portion or our county inai nas al
ways done its part in paving and assist
ing and providing conveniences for the
rest of the county demands this from
us. We should do all in our power to
secure this for them. The comparisons
made of taxes and valuation with other
portions of our county is not d ine to
disparage them. We beli- ye they have
only what they are entitled to, and
other portions of the county should
have the same. Craven

and a thii d cents on the hundred dol
lars va'uation in excess of said limit.
A restraining order was granted by
Judge Phillips at the Carte; et term of
the Superior Court against tne collec
tion of this excess and the time set for
hearing as stated above.
Hon. C. R. Thomas appeared for the
plaintiffs, and Clement Manly, Esq..
for the county commissioners and
fci-erili. Juage lhornas presented the ,
case in a very able speech for the plain- j
tiffs, taking the ground that any tax

: legal or unauthorized purpose. He 1

I regulate it, and that the act of 1887 gave

The court held that tbe commissioners
were entitled to the levy, and that the
remedy was sufficient. The restraining

Our Onslow correspondent takes the
proper view of the railroad question.
The reclaiming of the fine plantations ,
that have grown up in briers and bushes
in that county would soon increase the
value of the property five times the '
subscription asked for. And it would
do the same in Craven county. A very
successful business man of this city
says it would be a very poor business
man that could not increase his busi
ness enough by the construction of a
road from New Berne to Wilmington to
pay his additional taxes levied ou ac
count of the same.
