The first Saturday in each momh is
the regular day for the meeting of the
Cass county Farmers" Club. Saturday
December 2d there was only seven
members present. Several questions
of interest were introduced for discus
sion. A member proposed that a pe
tition be circulated among the farmers
petitioning the Legislature to pass a
law compelling owners of stock to herd
their etock nights, commencing the 1st
cf September each year. Some of the
reasons advanced in favor of such a
law were that stock commence getting
unruly and break into cornfields in the
fall as soon as the grass begins to get
dry, and should be taken care of to
keep them from learning to break down
and jump fences; and that it would be
a great saving to the farmers, as un
dr the present arrangement thousands
of bushels of corn are destroyed every
year; more than sufficient to pay the
extra expense of herding stock nights.
Farmers will do well to consider the
matter, and try to get a more stringent
law against unruly stock irunninjr at
large in the fall, and especially nights,
when the fields cannot have the pro
tection of a man or boy with a good
The subject of fencing was also in
troduced. It is a very important sub
ject, and one that interests every good
farmer. There should be more atten
tion given to raising hedges, a a line
fence is a necessity on the prairies
where timber is scarce, as a protec
tion against the severe winds as well
as for protecting the crops from stock
running at large. TheOsage Orange
is undoubtedly the beBt plant " for
hedge ; but this year the seed cannot
be had in any quantity, as the fruit has
failed in Texas and Arkansas, where
it has been obtained heretofore.
The question was asked in the Club
if the Honev Locust could not be used
for fencing, as well as the Osage Or
ange. INoceofthe members present
could say from their own experience
whether it could or not; but nearly
expressed it as their opinion that

tried the Honey Locust for a hedge,

procured by gathering it in western

ery rnu wUere mere is limber;
pecially along the Missouri river.
The President of the Club exhibited
two ears of com that weighed two
pounds, and the shelled corn weighed
one pound ten ounces.

does not circulate, spread the onions

from the side of the building; let them
get thoroughly frozen, then cover thern

keep the hay from mixing with them,
and spread the hay two feet or more in
depth above the covering, also pack fine
hay closely between the heap and the
ides of the building. Here let them
remain untouched until the first frost is
entirely out, when they should be spread
at once, well aired and turned often

LIVE TP TO TOt'K IDEAL,
This should be the great aim of the
farmers as of all men. Every one has
in his mind, an ideal of what his farm,
his home and its surroundings should be.
In his quiet, thoughtful moments, he
pictures to himself his farm laid out in
cocvenient fields, his timber lot spring
ing into existence under the stimulants
of fertile soil and genial seasons, his
orchards laden with choice fruits, his
garden filled with the finest vegetables,
his crops rightly chosen for profit and
rotation, -all well tilled and weedless.
He sees a comfortable house comfort
ably furnished in which his family is
happy and contented; and out-baildings
neat in good repair and conveniently
located. In short, his homestead, he
knows, should his ideal be carried out,
would be a little paradise, yielding him
profit and pleasure. And yet to actual
ly realize this ideal how few efforts do
most men put forth, though little by little,
bo v much may te done is three years
that roll on, bringing the end of all vis
ions and of all efforts. Men dream and
delve and drift, leaving no spot on earth
the better, or move the beautiful for their
iviug, no example worthy of imitation.
This need not be, were the attempt
earnestly made to accomplish their own
ideal of farming and of farm life. True
hey may never be able to reach, com
pletely, this ideal, but there is pleasure
its pursuit, when commenced, and
satisfaction in all progress toward it
Action is the simple talisman that se
cures all success. Prarie Farmer.

THE TRIRU1U for 18 Go.
Tbe Military and Naval f accesses of 1S64, with the
ankniciiiiia result of our l'rexidential eontent. have
lifted a heavy weight from the breasts of the loyal
millions of our countrymen. It ts now felt, even by
those who have been distrustful and faint hearted
that the Coiou is to emerge triumphant from the
deadly strife whereinto she was so wickedly prrcipi
tated by her assailants, and that slavery, her re
lentless foe.i s ti encounter the f ite of Uaman. The
perils of foreign iterveiitiou and of Western insur
rection are safely pawed : Abraham Lix oln, no
longer assailable as a choice of the minority, holds
the helm of Mate for four yoars longer; the rebellion
palpably weakened by its defrata and losses during
the past year with its credit so reduced that its
purse-learer officially declares that its Treasury
notes can oul v be exchanged for com at the rate
twenty-five for one, w hile its bonds command but
six cents on the tlollar-bnt awaits the blow which
shall soon strike the sword from its puracidiil hand
and remit its master spirits to the justice, or it may
be lo the cleni' rcy, of a sorely wronged and justly
icensrd but forbearinc and maeuanimous people
Such are the auspios which justify our faith that the
oresent rear wil see the Mars and strip' s 11 ml un
challenged from every battlement in the U public,
and the perfect law of Liberty for All Immovably no
bed-led in the Constitution of our Union.
The New Cork Tribuxe. founded in 1841, will en
ter upon its twenty-fourth year with quickened
bores and enlarged means of usefulness, its prinm
nles need no re-statement: its aims are the dilf iiion
of Intelligence and the inoculatio of a spirit of Fre
dom aud Humanity. When this tmth shall have
been generally recognized and established as the ba
is of our institutions and poiity, that injustice to th
poorest, the weakest, the most despised, is a fearful
mistake that no community or otato ran alTord to
wrong even its humblest member then will nu
and ba: k once more in the calm sunshine of peace

cheieest light and genei al reading of the day. We
speak of this work as an evidence of the American
people; and the popularly it has acquired is merit,
ed. Each number contains fully 144 paues of read
ing matter, appropriately illustrated with good wood
cuts; and it combines in itself the racy monthly and
the more philosophical quarterly, bu nded with the
best features i f the daily journal. It has great power
