ARTEMCS WA ItD as a FARMER
An Agricultural County Aisociation
invited Arteraus Ward to address them
on the occasion of their next annual
fair. He wrote the President of that
Society as follows:
Niw York, June 12, 1S65.
Dear Sir: I have the honor to
acknowledge the receipt of your letter
of the 5th inst., in which you invite me
to deliver an address before your ex
cellent agricultural society.
I feel flattered, and I think I will
Perhaps, meanwhile, a brief history
of my experience as an agriculturist
will be acceptable; and as that history,
no doubt, contains suggestions of value
to the entire agricultural community, I
have concluded to write you through the
I have been an honet old farmer for
fome four years.
My farm is in the interior of Maine.
LTnfortunately my lands are eleven
miles from the railroad. Eleven miles
is quite a distance to haul immense
quantities of wheat, corn, rye and oats,
but as I haven't any to haul, I do not,
after all, suffer much on that account.
My farm is more especially a grass
My neighbors told me so at first, and.
as an evidence that they were sincere
in that opinion, they turned their cows
on to it the moment I went off "lectu
ring." Those cows are now quiie fat. I take
pride in those cows, in fact, aud am
glad I own a grass farm.
Two years ago I tried sheep raising.
I bought fifty lambs, and turned them
loose on my broad and beautiful acres.
It was pleasant on bright mornings
to stroll leisurely out on the farm in my
dressing-gown, with a cigar in rny
mouth, and watch those innocent little
lambs as they danced gaily o'er the
hillside. Watching their saucy capers
reminded me of caper sauce, and it
occurred to me I should have some
very fine eating when they grew up to
My gentle shepherd. Mr. Eli Fer
kins, said, "We must have some shep
I had no very precise idea as to
what shepherd dogs were, but I assum
ed a rather profound look, and said:
"We must, Eli. I spoke to you about
this some time ago."
I wrote to my old friend, Dr. Dexter
II. Follett, of Uoston, for two shepherd
dogs. He kindly forsook far more im
portant business to accommodate me,
and they came forthwith. They were
splendid creatures snuff-colored , hazel
eyed, long-tailed and sharpry-jawed.
We led them proudly to the fields.
"Turn them in, Eli," I said.
Eli turned them in.
They went in at once, and killed
twenty of my best lambs in about four
minutes and a half.
My friend had made quite a mistake
in the breed of these dogs.
These dogs were not partial to the
Eli Perkins was astonished, and ob
served, "Wall, did you ever!"
I certainly never had.
There were pools ct blood on the
green sward, and fragments of wool
and raw lamb chops lay around in con
The dogs would have been sent to
Boston that night, had they not rather
suddenly died that afternoon of a throat
distemper. It wasn't a swelling of the
throat. It wasn't diptheria. It was a
violent opening of tbe throat, extending
from ear to ear.
Thus closed their life-stories. Thus
ended their interesting tails.
I failed as a raiser of lambs. As a
sheepist, I was not a success.
Last summer, Mr. Perkins said, "I
think we'd better cut some grass this
We cut some grass.
To me the new.mown hay is very
sweet and nice. The brilliant George
Arnold sings about it, in beautiful ver
ses, down in Jersey every su-nmer, so
does the brilliant Vldrich, at Ports
mouth, N. H. And yet I doubt if either
of these nfen know the price of a ton
of hay to-day. Bat new-mown hay is
really a fine thing. It is good for man
We hired four honest farmers to as
sist us, and I led them gaily to the
I was going to mow, myself.
I taw the sturdy peasants go round
once ere 1 dipped my flashing scythe in
the tall green grass.
"Are you ready?" eaii E. Perkins.
"I am here."
"Then foUer us.''
I followed them.
Following them rather too closely,
evidently, foe a white-haired old man,
who immediately followed Mr. Per
kins, called upon u? to halt. Then, in
a low, firm voice, he said to his son,
who was ju3t ahead of me, "John,
change places with me. I hain't got
long to live, anyhow. Yonder berryin'
ground will soon have these old bones,
and it's no matter whether I'm carried
there with one leg off and ter'ble gash
es in the olhr or not. But you, John,
you are young."
The old man changed places with his
son, a smile of calm resignation lit up
his wrinkled face, as he said, "Now,
sir, I am retdy."
"What mean you, old man?" I said.
"I mean that if you continue to bran
ish that blade as you have braii'ished it,
you'll slash h 1 out of some of us be
fore we'er a hour older."
There wa3 some reason mingled with
this white haired old peasant's profan
ky. It was true that I had twice es
caped mowing off his son's legs, and
his father was perhaps naturally
1 went and sat down under a tree.
"I never know'd a literary man in my
life," I overheard the old man say,
"that know'd anything."
Mr. Perkins was not as valuable to
me this season as I had fancied he
would be. Every afternoon he disap
peared from the field regularly, and re
mained about some two hours. He
said it was headache. He inherited it
from his mother. His mother was
often taken in that way, and suffered a
At the end of the two hours Mr.
Perkins would re-appear with his head
neatly done up in a large wet rag, and
said he "feit better."
One afternoon it so happened that I
soon followed the invalid to the house,
and as I neared the porch I heard a
female voice energetically observe,
"You stop!" It was the voice of the
hired girl, and she added, "I'll holler
for Mr. Brown!"
"Oh, no, Nancy," I heard the invalid
E. Perkins soothingly fay, "Mr. Brown
knows I love you. Mr. Brown ap
This was pleasant for Mr. Brown.
I peered cautiously through the
kitchen Iliads, and however unnatural
it may appear, the lips of Eli Perkins
and my hired girl were very near to
gether. She said, "You shan't do so,"
and he do-soed. She also said she
would get right up and go away, and,
as an evidence that she was thoroughly
in earnest about it, she remained where
They are married , and Perkins is

San Francisco Nov. 29th, form Nevada
sajs: On the 17th inst, Lieut. Osmar,
with 00 Calafornia volunteers and a
howitzer, attacked a large band of In
dians who had formed themselves on
the Black Mountains, about 100 miles
north-west of Dungelen, in the North

ing the engagement one volunteer was
killed and two wounded. Of the Indi

all their horses, arms and amunition
were captured. This was the band
which three weeks ago robbed a train,

This is the name of the greatest of
New England's criminal lawyers, who
practiced in the courts when Daniel
Webster was a boy, and of whom the
following story is told:
Mason was engaged as counsel in
the celebrated trial of B. K. Avery, a
Methodist divine, for the murder of a
young lady in Uhode Island. He ex
perienced great diffiaulty in obtaining
evidence sufficient to establish his case.
when one night, towards twelve, as he
was hard at work, a well known cler
gyman rushed in upon him, breathless
with excitement and exclaimed:
Mr. Mason! Mr. Mason! I've got
evidence to clear Brother Avery!'
"Well, sir, what is it?"
"Yes, sir, I had a dream last night,
in which the angel Gabriel appeared
and said Avery was innocent!"

JSs,In Gen. Grant's report of Shsr
man's movement from Chattanooga to
Atlanta he says that it was 'prompt,
skillful and brilliant," and that the "his
tory of his flank movements and battles
during the memorable campaign will
ever be read with an interest unsurpass
ed by anything in history." We learn
from this report also that Sherman's
"inarch to the sea'' was not a result of
Hood's flank movements from Atlanta,
as was universally believed ot the time,
but that he had planned it deliberately
and laid the general fes'ures of it be
fore Gen. Grant more than two months
before he moved, and more than one
month before Hood started on hi? fatal
tramp to Tenne?see. We learn, loo,
that Grant had doubts about the move
ment, but finally yielded his consent.
Rice in a Pstumatic Railroad
Tube. A london paper cantains an ac
count of the opening of a pneumatic line
of railway from the general post office
of the London and Northwestern rail
road, and tha passage through the tube
of several gentlemen who were anxious
for a new sensation. Due preparation
was made, and, against many remon
strances the party determined to go.
The account of the expedition says:
The first sensation at starting, and
still more so upon arriving, was cer
tainly not agreeable. For about a quarj
ter of a minute in each case there was
a pressure upen tbe cars rggcfiive of
a diving bell exercise, a suc'Lii like that
with which one is drawn under a wave,
and a cold draft of wind I'pcn ihe eves,
having almost the effect of fulling water;
but once fairly iu the tube these sensa
tions were got rid of, or It-ft behind, and
the motion had little positive discomfort
about it. It was a curious sensation to
be flying along through the earth, feel
feremost, in utter darknes; for the best
part cf ten minuet, which, in such n
place, seemed half an hour.
Various experiments Lave been tried
with the tube rind its powers tf suction.
one of the officials at last determined to
see what wculd happen ia case the train
stuck fast at any point on its journey.
A carriage was accordi;ig!y schotched"
or fastened in such a way that it could
not move, and the power of the engine
exerted to its utmost. The carraige in
question was intended for passengers.
and furnished accordingly. By and ty
one of the cushions, others, and fin
ally all the movables uhifh the carriage
obtained, were hurled through the tube
and delivered at the o'lier cr.d, the force
exerted being such that tven the nails
keeping down the carpet wtni extract

no means foul or disagreeable. Final
