ing campaign?. We do not pretend J a
to be very well posted At to the inten-
tions of that order :n particular, or
other orders in general, but we do
know that at an order it will not, and
not take any political action , but
! the constitution of the order does not
contemplate depriving the members of
their rights as citizens-, and when a
grange has been closed and is no longer
at work under the charter of the Na-
tional Grange, the members are at
j perfect liberty to tako any action they
choo?e as citizcus. whether it be to in

longing to the order does not deprive
any one of his perogatives as an Amer
ican citizen, as some one seem to sup
pose, and if the industrial elements
decide, for mutual beneflt, to unite in
forming a political organization, out
side of, and independent of the grange,
thoy have a perfect right to take such
action as they see proper.
When the gavel has been brought
down, the master declares the grange

That there h a prevailing sentiment
among the industrial classes in favor
of righting fome of the flagrant exist
ing wrongs in political afTiirs, can no
longer be questioned. But tho vwdiis
operandi)' which this is to be brought
about remains for tho future to tell.
That there is need for n new or indc
nnndnnt nirtv. wo do not believe. It
Mieius to u that it would be quite as
ca;y a tatk to coriect wrongs in the
existing party as to form a new party,
void of wrong, and wo take it, thcl
best means of purifying party and pre
venting corruption is for tho people
everywhere to attend the primaries
with as much, if not more eagerness
than they would at the polls, and to
see to it that none nui eapaoic aim
honest men are nominated. Select
men whom you are convinced will work
for the interebt of tho industrial
and producing classes; select them
from the industrial class-es, and then
attend to it that no fraud or chicanery,
on the part if political tricksters and
wire-pullers shall bo allowed to tri
umph over tho voice of the people.
Political bummer are ever ready to
make all manner of promises, but
when they havo worked themselves
into position these profosional offlco
eeckcrs are too often found ignoring
tho power that made them, and lend
ing their aid to oppressive monopolies
becauso there is money in it.
That great wrongs exist, which tho
people havo power to correct, none
can deny. That the mot of theso
wrongs have grown from tho neglect
of the wronged people, is equally ap
parent. Too little attention has been
paid to rincipltJ of party by the com
mon mast?, and too little importance
has been given to the primaries which
are in reality of more importance than
penenl elections. Men have sought
office too much, and offices have "ought
men too yeldom. It is at the prima
ries, ami not at the election- where
laf es are made out, and political bum
mers aud wire pullers put in their
work; nominating men who never
could have been placed in nomiuation
had thero been a general turn out of
the people, and thus in many in
stances placing iu the Seld, tickets,
from all parties, that arc the very
quintessence of trickery, corruption
and meauness, and oa election day the
people are called upon to "choose be
tween two evils."
That there should be a reform in
this rejpect is certain, and if the r
ple do not strive to redress existing
wrong- by taking teps to tecuro the
reform, then there will be little pity
for them while monopolies continue to
grind them down. Tba watch words
should be, "honesty" "compe'tancy,"
and farmers, laborers and all others
should freely dircosa the men and
measures requisite to work a reform,
and give all "equal rights under the
law." The farmers; yea, the com-J yet, otherwise, he is doing wtiat aay

The idea that farmers should keep
out of politics, because they belong to
tho tjrtnge, is an erroneous one Af
ter (J range work has been completed
and the Orange closed, it is eminently
proper to discus political interests,
which are. surely of not less interest
to them. fbu any other class of indi
vidualES? rSome claim that to plow,
hoe, tqUfand sweat is the true destiny
e, toufanu swi
and that they should
let politics alone, to bo manipulated
by those who live by it, at tho ex
pense of the toiling millions. Excuse
us for thinking otherwise, and r-trongly
insisting that it it not only the right,
but the duty of tho laboring class to
have a voice in shaping the laws by
which they must be governed. This

Tho dry hot weather of this season
ha- put the soil of Nebraska to a test,
which she has passed through and
come out of in better shape, some as
sure ua, than iu seaaous of gcueral
rain5?. At all events tho crops look
splendid, notwithstanding tho ground
was absolutely dry for at lext four
feet down. This is certainly a very
important fact, and worthy of the at
tention of the most skillful chemists.
In Europo larce outlays of money, in
some instances equal to $500 to the
acre, have been made to perfect a sys
tem of under drainngo, which is in
tended to allow tho soil to absorb and
carry oft tho exoe-s of moisture in wet
seasons, and to enablo it to withstand
drouth by furnishing a circulation of
air through the earth, which is made
more porou by this plan.
Nature, in this State, has provided
a more perfect t.ysteru of under drain
aye than tho most artful skill of man
The capacity of the soil to absorb
moisture is equal to gravel or sand,
while the sil itself is of tho very rich
est vegetable mtfuld, combined with
limo, sand, clay, in quantities to pre
vent "baking," and to givo a light and
pliable character to tho ground, over
which tho plow and cultivator skips
along, doing twice the work with the
same expenditure of mucle. Heavy
rains are drank up by the earth, or
passed off on the surfaco with wonder
ful celerity, leaving the ground stored
with an abundanco of moisture. The
looso soil allows a free circulation of
air underneath, which tho tempera
ture below robs of its moisturo and
applies to vegetable growth. The hot
sun and drying wind draw the mois
ture from below in tho process of
evaporation, and bring it to the roots
atahe surface, which in turn, they ap
propriate to their own use. An emi
nent horticulturist from tho stato of
New York wrote home to his people,
recommending them to order a car
load of earth from Nebraska, in which
to raise their choicest vegetables. This
would not secure the happy result an
ticipated, because, taken to thtato
of New York, the surface would lack
tho congenial subsoil of its nativo
home, and would not show its chief
value as a fertilizer.
Time will demonstrate that the ar
denofthe world lies in the Stato of
Nebraska. With th'n advantage we
may bid defiance to monopolists and
only a Wief period ahead to the time
when, finding it impracticable to move
the soil to the cast, eastern people will
choose the wi-cr course, and come and
move it with the plow, to the end that
thrift and plenty may follow. Omaha

An ingenious Scotch engineer ha
introduced a road steamer upon the
streets of Glasgow, the successful
operation of which, and its absolute
freedom from objection of any kind,
aro believed to havo solved the prob
lem of steam locomotion on common
roads, which hat given ri-e to so much
investigation and experiment of Ute
years. By this new arrangement, the
engine attached to the road carriage
is so simple in construction, and so
completely under control, that it is
possible ty stop the carriage, when
traveling at tho rato of six miles an
hoar, within a distance of fifteen feet.
An annulus. provided for tho emission
of steam in a continuous glow, pre
vents the noise of puffing and snorting
of The engine, and obviates all diffi
culty and danger of horses shying or
becoming frightened. It is Mated
that tho inventor of this road steamer
has applied the principle here Involved
in the manufacture of a privato trav
eling carriage, and proposes to build
steam oinnibusos for city convenience
and traffic. The small privato car
riage, aftor many experiments in the
moit crowuod streets of Glasgow, was
found to be perfectly manageable,
while the steam omnibus, according t
the plau proposed, will, it is believed,
prove equally favorable in its opera
tion, besides being from forty to
fifty per cent less expeusivo iu work
ing than an ordinary horse omnibus of
the same capacity.
Przabg and Training Fruit Treti.
Our most successful ponologints
agree that a standard tree, in an orch
ard, should have five or six feet of a
clean, straight Mem. Straightncss can
be perfectly obtained by keeping the
young tree tied to a stake until it has
acquired strength and firmness enough
to support itself in a straight ponition.
All shoots proceeding from the stem,
below tho first tier of branches form
ing tho head, should bo rubbed ofF
with the hand while tender, as, if al
lowed to grow, they retard the devel
opment of the head and impair the
form and habit of the tree. In form
ing the bead of a young standard, a
vigorous upright shoot should be se
cured for a leader, and three or four
others of the most vigorous to form
branches or boughs. A Iaxness or
alenderncss of habit can be corrected
by pinchiog ofi the end of the branch
ci,prodaciDg a more horizontal growth.
At the present time, in growing sea-
sou, young trees will be pushing vig-
orounly, and, as a general thin, will
have made growth enough to enable
the orcharhist to perceive what form
they are about to assume whether
tbe young branches are proceeding
from the right place, and in the right
direction to reach the dwired form.
If they are not, they should Ife set
right at once by rubbing off shoots
that are not wanted, pinching the top
off to retard such as are pushing too
vigorou-ly to the detriment of others.
An equality of growth among the
hoot intended for the main branches,
or frame work of tbe tree, should be
maintained; and where n eorplw of
small branches in the interior are ap
pearing, giving the tree a boahjr or
-r- IrvnV & cnif.ut nniabttr nf

others to acquire a fell and rigorow

Two currencies of unequal value can-

drives out the better. !
Massachusetts sooa began to ue a
barter currency. Corn, beaver, wam
pum, musket balls and many other
thing were made a 'legal tender.' The
"pine tree" coinage began in 165'J,
and specie was steadily exported, not
withstanding the law made this a
crime aed attached a heavy penalty to
it In 1701 a royal proclamation fixed
the value of the coin, but it was of oo
effect whatever. The fint paper mon
ey wasi-wued in 1090 and although
the bills were receivable for taxes they
were at one-third discount. At this
tune Connecticut was blessed with
three or four currencies. Merchants
sold oods for "pay" "pay as money,"
"money," and "trusting." Pay was
barter currency at legal rates, puy as
money was ono third lower, money
was coin with wampum for change

In 1 709 several states issued paper
money, viz: Maachusetts, New
Hampshire, Khode Ilard, Connecti
cut, New York and New Jersey. Tke
bills were made legal tender, but they
were soon dicounted, although tho
laws contained tho severest penalties
against those who relafied to take
them. Speculation followed tho pa
per, and then came the cry of more
money followed by fresh issues. So
the game went on ; more paper, more
demand for it ; fresh paper to redeem
the old issues. Speculation ran high
