ooaries ii. Turner, tne "ice
man" statesman of New York, is
an illustration of the kind of man
we like. With native genius
supplemented by industry, he rose
from tbe position of. driver of an
ice wagon -in the city of New York,
to an honored place in the Congress
of the United States ; but he has
recently wo 1 a viotory in which he
has the sympathy of every genuine
man in the country. The National
"Congressman Charles U.Turner,
the 'ice man' statesman from New
York, finds it easier to succeed in
politics than in love, but persis
tency has made him a winner in
both. His engagement to Miss
Winnie W. Lewis, the daughter of
a good New Hampshire . family,
has just been announced, and ends
a rom&Ctio chapter in tbe lives of
both the now happy people. Cases
are not uncommon in which the
proud parents of a young woman
prevent for a while the choice of a
husband, and in which tbe aspiring
youth, after a tremendous 'hust
ling,' wins the whole family oer
and carries off his bride. 'Iceman'
Turner had won the consent of
Miss Lewis, bnt was not acceptable
to the family so the engagement
was broken off. Then Congress
man Turner appeared. and as a
legislator ot his country was ad
mstted to tbe home of the yonng
woman's uncle in Washington.
When Miss Lewis visited the gal
leries of tbe House, Congressman 1
Turner realized his opportunity to
attain a crowning victory. He
asked for 10 minutes to speak on
the Oklahoma question, and did' so
right eloquently ; every one said
that fn elocution and diction the
effort was commendable, and not a
few knew that Mr. Turner's 'best:

Tbe dispatches,; General Com

water had reached a higher leVel
than had been known before. Dis
cussing the precautions which
should be taken to guard against
tbe damage incident to the fre
onent. floods in the river and the
various plans which had been pro
posed, General Comstock said:
"The Mississippi Biver Commis
sion has lately been engaged in
building up and strengthening tbe
levees between Memphis and v lcks
burg, and I am convinced thnt this
is the only way to flgbt the angry
waters. Tbe simplest and most
natural method is to increase the
height of the barriers, of course
making them sufficiently strong, so
that the water cannot possibly now
The levee system has been
great protection to settlers on the
banks of the Mississippi, and we
would not advocate its abandon
ment. The levees from Cairo to
New Orleans should be strengthen
ed, and new ones should be con
etructed wherever experience de
monstrates that they are needed
But levees alone will not afford
adequate protection to life and
property. The capacity for out
flow must be greater than the
actual inflow, and "no system.oi
levees can be made to successfully
answer conditions such as periodi
cally arise when the Mississippi
through its several mouths die
chafges only 1,100,000 cubic feet
per second, while the in flow, at
and from Carlo south to tbe mouth
of the Bed river, is 2,100,000 cubic
feet per second."
Such a volume of water, so much
greater than the river can hold,
must ot necessity go over the
river's bank if it cannot go out of
the river's mouth.
Now tbe question arises, can the
mouths of the Mississippi be

immense volume of water and thus
prevent inundation T We believe
they can. The jetties at the mouth
of the river have deepened the

Federal Government can not atone ;
for improvidence and wasteuilness '
on the part of its subjects :
''To the Editor of the News and
Courier : I wrote an article last
week on the pickling business,
which was largely copied through
out the South. Iu consequenee I
have been overrun with inquiries
from your section from persons
who wished to know further regard
ing the business of canuing and
pickling. For the benefit ot those
interested I will enter more fully
into t he details of the bn.incs. I
have travelled South, ;md it was
indeed surpnsiug that one sees
large quantities of canned goods
sold in the South, and with but few
exceptions they are packed by
Northern packing houses. This
has heretofore been the case, but
the go ahead spirit of the New
South demands reform, and in a
tew years hence the industry will
be found thriving everywhere iu
the Southern States, and the
Northern packer will be forced to
seek other markets.
UTILIZING THE LATE TRVCK.
Your farmers, more especially
your truckers, have been satisfied
wiMi large profi:s realized by early
shipments, bnt when the Virginia
and Maryland product came in
market it did not further pay your
truckers to ship, consequently
housands of acres of prime slock
for canning and pickling purposes
has been allowed to waste for want
of some means of utilizing it; the
same can be said of your Imits.
The South raises large quantities
of fruits, which but little is realized
on, and the bulk ot the crop is al
lowed to decay lor cannmg facul
ties. These fiuits and vegetables
you have allowed to waste could be
put up in your markets and hand
some profits realized ; but instead
the South depends on the North to
supply her with the very article
she has thrown away. In Maryland
and elsewhere farmers do not eDjoy
the advantages realized by the
Southern trucker. The Southern
farmer has been well paid, and his
profits have been large for the pro
duce; be has shipped to early
markets, consequently when the
product of Maryland comes in the
prices are down, and we are com
pelled to Bell in competition with
the Southern product. The South
ern farmer can, therefore,' realize
on his early shipments, and after it
does not pay to ship the surplus
can be utilized for cannine pur
THE FAEMEHs' CHANCE FOE A
We have thousands of farmers
in Maryland who plant their crops
for this purpose alone. They cure
their own crops and will perhaps
in addition buy up their neighbor's,
and at the close of tbe season have
a thousand or two dollars to add to
the profit of the farm account.
Because rtie Southern trucker has
already realized a profit is no
reason why he should abandon his
surplus. It would give employ
ment to numbers of persons during
tbe canning season. Here in
Maryland thousands depend on
this industry for a living. Large
numbers are given employment in
the factories the year round can
ning fruits, vegetables, fisboysters,
etc., which could be done in your
section to greater profit. Labor is
cheap and plentiful aad you enjoy
every advantage of a good market,
with an abundance of fruit, vege
table, fish and oysters. Your lands
are rich, and your climate adapted
to vegetable culture. As regards
operating a canning factory the
Southern farmer has been under
the impression that it required
large capital, combined with long
business experience, but they are
beginning to realize that they can
operate this canning and pickling
factory in addition to their other
duties. A farm hand can learn the
process in one day, as no prerious
knowledge is necessary. I have
naa numerous inquiries irom per
sons woo wished to start in a small
way; others in a large way. The
process of pickling up pickles is
very simple, and a start can be
made on a very few dollars that
would keep several persons busy
for six months in- tbe year. Ir
would pay to combine the pickling
business with that ol canning, as
the same machinery will answer
for both purposes.
'. COST OF AN OUTFIT
An outfit that will can 2,000 3
pound cans per day will cost com
plete $150; that of a 5,000 3 pound
can outfit will cost complete $225.
The cans will cost for 3 pound $2.40
or less per hundred; 2 pound; $1.80
per hundred; for pickles the bottles
can be had very clitap. Pickles
can also be put up iu barrels aud
kegs, in bulk, bothplain and. with
mustard, spices, etc; bat when put
up iu bottlt s, nicely labelled, they
command a ready sale at paying
prices, A canning outfit can be put
up by the most inexperienced per
son used with steam power, or can
be put in brick the same as sugar
boilers. When steam is already
used on a farm for other purposes
it can be easily attached to your
canning machinery, but it answers
the same purpose to simply set in
brick, as described aboved. The
carning business is a clean profit
able business; there is nothing dis
agreeable about it, and as so little
money is required to make a start,
and the profit connected with it so
large, it is surprising that so little
attention is paid to the business.
I will take great pleasure in giving!
all the information I can to your
readers in reference to both cann
iug and pickling, and, if desired,
will give full particulars in refer
ence to putting up vinegars, cat
sups, sauces, etc., I am convinced
that your farmers have overlooked
this important branch of industry,
and depend too much on a ioreign
market for goods which they could
find a payiDg market at home for,
in supply ing the wholesale and re
tail trade, and'with a better article
than is now sold in the Charleston
and Carolina markets.

A Very Lire Old Man.
John (jr. Whittier, who is now
eighty two years old, is about the
livest man of his generation. He
is vigorous both in body and mind,
and can do as good work as ever
His last poem, "The Captain's
Well," which he wrote for the New
York Ledger, in hia eighty second
vear. is one of the strongest, most
beautiftl, and most finished pro
ductions that ever came from his
pen. Mr. Whittier, iu sending
"The Captain's Well" to the Led
ger, wrote to the publishers of that
paper that it .would probably be
the last poem he would ever write,
but we hope that in this he was
mistaken. The venerable poet did
not fix any price upon "The C ip-
tain's Well," bnt left the remunera
tion to Messrs. Robert Bonner's
Sons, and ihey seut him a check
for a thousand dollars. Such unu
sual liberality touched the old man
deeolv; especially because (as he
characteristically wrote) it enabled
him to give more than he had
hoped to be able to bestow upon
certain charitable enterprises that
were near to his heart.
It is seldom that so modest,
peaceful and useful a life as John
ti. Whittier's is lived upon this
earth, and millions of the aged
poet's admirers and mends are
gratified to know that there is good
promise that his lite may be yet
spared for many years.

usually anxious to be ahead.
They want tbe credit of being the
first to see the game.
They want also, perhaps, the
first shot. They do not consider
that it two beads come in sight over
a ridge, the chances that they will
be observed are just twice ss great
as if only one appears.
They seem to think,too,that Provi
dence is looking out for them in
some especial way, and that game
will be deaf and blind to their
blunbers, though fully alive to
those of others.
Old hunters act very differently.
It is understood by them that the
man who is ahead is to do the
hunting. The one behind, while
keenly scanning the country to see
anything that may present itself,
aud which may have escaped the !
eye of his companion, never inter
feres with him, but awaits li ia
direction, lie is ready at a sign
t j creep up beside his leader aud
shoot, or he is equallv prepared to
lie down where he is, and to wait
there for an indefinite time, or he i
will make a long round to start the '
game by giving it his wind or I
showing himself to it, so as to 1
drive it in some desired direction.
For the time being the man who
is in the lead is commander, and if
t ne two nave hunted in company
otren eaough to understand each
other, they work together with
most perfect system.
Another thing that you will
notice snout two old hunters is
that they never try to shoot
ether at game. One or the
other takes tbe shot, aud if it fails,
then they do the best tbey can.
They know very well that it is
almost impossible for two men to
shoot at the same time without
each being a little thrown off his
balaice, and they conclude rightly
that, the two being both fair shots,
there is more likelihood that one
ball from a deliberately aimed rifle
will kill, than that two, eaeh of
which will be more or less hastily
delivered, will reach the mark they
are aimed at. Forest and Stream.

So far the Winters of 1889 and
1890 have been pretty much alike.
The years 115 and 1816 were also
very mild. I often heard my father
talk about those Winters, and in
this short article 1 will try and give
some of the facts as my father gave
them to me. In 1815 very little
snow fell in November, and Decem
ber; in January, 1816, it was mud;
tbe sun was shining most .every
day during the month. The people
thought February would be cold,
but that month turned out very
warm also. The month of March
was cold and stormy. A great
many people called the year, a year
without a Summer. In April it
was very cold; during May the ice
was one inch thick on some
streams. The fruit tree blossoms
and the young corn were frozen.
Some farmers built large fires
around their fields and the smoke
and heat saved Bome of the yonng
corn. In Jnne snow and ice could
bd found; vegetables were a failure.
When the rye was in blossom, six
1 tches of snow fell, and some far
mers took long lines, went across
their fields and pulled off the snow.
All the farmers that did that got
no rye; those who ,left the snow on
got about half a crop. The 4th of
July was very cold and windy; on
the 5th ice formed on tbe waters of
New York, Pennsylvania and some
of the other Eastern States. In
August, ice formed half an inch
thick; September and October were
warm. All crops were a failure.
Corn sold for from $4. 50 to $5 per
bushel. On January 14th, 1890,
a man told me that he saw dande
lions and cherry trees in bloom,
also, saw robins and heard frogs
croak. On Jannary 20tb, light
rain; 2 1st, fair and very warm; on
the morning of the 22d the ther
mometer was down to 12 degrees,
and the wind blowing at the rate
of about 40 miles per hour all diy

period of the year the lands in
question are most subject to over
flow. We cannot suggest any crop
that would not be injured by over
flow except probably grass, and
especially for pasture. Such lands
in Georgia would yield a very profi

grass, the vitality of which would
not be affected by even a prolonged
overflow. If grass be sown for bay
alone the crop would be seriously
injured, if not ruined, if overflowed
by muddy water at or near the
time of mowing. We have no
doubt the practice of your most
successful farmers who cultivate
similar land would be the safest
guide to follow. We are not famil

I stood to-day upon the ridge
Where once the blue briaJos were
And gazed upon the phiiu below,
O'er which the charging columns
And sauntering downward somewhat
Ameng the stones no longer stained,
I came upon a little mound
That only the front rank had gained ;
A little mound left all alone.
Unmarked by ilower or cypress reath
To show that some regretful heart
Remembered him who slept beneath.
But half-way hidden hy the grass,
I found a broken barrel stave;
The headboard which some focmui's
Had kindly placed upon the grave.
And on it traced thes" touching words.
In letters I could .-. arte divine;
''A rebel name, unknown, who fell
First in the foremost line.''

The hollow winds begin to blow,
The cloinis lojk black, the irlass is low,
I'be soot falls down, the spaniels sleep,
And spiders from their cobwebs peep,
Last night the sun went pale to bed,
Tbe moon in palor bid her head ;
The boding shepherd heaves a sigh,
For, see a rainbow spans the sky 1
The walls are damp, the ditches swell,
Closed is the pink eyed piropernell;
Hark, how the chairs and tables crack,
Old Uetty's joints are on the rack;
Loud quacks. the ducks, the peacocks cry,
The distant hills are looking nitrh.
How restless are the snorting swine,
The busy flies disturb the kine;
Low over the grass the swallow wing.s,
Tho cricket too, bow sharp he sings.
Puss on the hearth, with velvet paws,
Sits wiping o'er her whiskered jaws.
Through the clear stream the fishes rise
And nimbly catch the incautious flies,
The glow worms, numerous and bright,
Illumed the dewy dell last night.
At dusk the squadlin toad was seen
Hopping and crawling o'er the green,
The dust in clouds rises in tho roadwa3's,
And in rapid eddy plays,
The frog has chaDged his yellow vest.
And in a russet coat is dressed.
Though June, the wind is cold and still,
My dog, so altered in his taste,
Quits mutton bones, ou grass to feast.
And see yon rooks, how odd their flight,
They imitate the gliding kite.
And seem precipitate to fall,
As if they felt the piercing ball.

Our jaunt must he put off to-morrow.
