Editor Journal: In my last I
promised to note improvements in
our busy little city. A little over
one year back, it was scarcely
dreamed of by any one; now the
buildings extend one hundred and
twenty rods north and south, and
pretty close together on each side of
the main street; and some forty
rods east and west. Pretty well for
a one year old. Is it not? Tho
building this fall has been nearly all
on the north side of the railroad,
and consists of a fine large residence
built by Mr. Thelcn, the partner in
the drug store with Dr. Euglchard ;
this firm has also built a large fur
niture store. Dr. Euglchard has
built a large and costly residence,
and moved a good hou9C into town,
to rent; a good house has been built
b' an employee of the 11. It- Co. A
good meat-market building has also
been put up, and doing a fair busi
ness. Mrs. Uencdict has built a
good building which she occtipies as
a residence and millinery estabhsh

stable north of his hotel; a bakery
has been built, and now is in opera
tion; and a nice building is now
nearly completed, to be occupied by
our harness maker, as residence, sale
and work-room. The Congrega
tionalism have their church building
nearly finished, and there are quite
a large number of other buildings of
more or less importance, besides ad
ditions to others. Mr. Turnci you

Wc hope that our farmers will,
this winter, agitate the subject of
raising flax, and arrive at some sal
factory conclusion, the result of

;we Ehall see them investing in flax
seed. Farmers must sow something
a else beside wheat, oats and barley if
they would reach the goal for which
they arc striving, namely : Wealth
and Independence. And one of the
' 6urcst plans lies in diversity of crops.
Sow flax seed, and Harvard and
other towns in the couuty will reap
rope walks. It is nonsense to send
abroad for a single pound of rope,
when wc have everything at hand
'to make just as good au article as
can be manufactured anywhere, and
for as low price. And another point
to bo gained will be au increased
demand for everything they can
raise, for the men who are required
to manufacture the rope will need
something to live upon.

Messrs. Clarkson have originat

hay business, and a genuine boom
it is. They average three cars per
day from this placo, and about one

have four machines at work with a
combined capacity of forty tons per

Clarkson that hay in the Lcadrillo

of eating fruit from his own orchard.
A number of his trees, standard and
transcendents, bore, which is still
additional proof of that success
which will attend the labors of any
careful person who interests him
himself in fruit trees. Mr. Bailey is
of the opinion that only a careful
study of the nature of our climate,
and of the soil, and the advantage
of that knowledge is necessary to
insure success. He has a grove on
three sides of his orchard, aud is
now preparing to plant a grove on

which he considers necessary to in

Col. R. W. Furnas says this
about raising peaches in this State:
"We are pleased to see a practical
exemplification of our theory of
treating peach trees, besides on our

ticed by most successful peach cul
turists. That is heading back

Two men were neighbors, and each
of them had a wife and sovcrallitlle
children, and noithcr of them had
anything but his own labor for their
support, une ot tuesc men as
ill at ease within himself, saying:
"If I should die, or if I should fall
sick, what would become of my wife
and children?" And this thought
novcr quitted him, and it knawed
his heart, as tho worm kuaws tho
hoart of the applo in which it lies
Whilo the same thought camo in
like manner to the other father, he
never Btoppod thero, for said ho,
"God, who knows all his creatures,
and keeps a loving watchcare over
them ; God will wafck over me, and
ray wife and little ones."
And so it camo to pass that this
man lived happily, while tho other
nofcr tasted a monism's rcposo nor
a hoartfolt joy. Ono day while he
was working in tho fiold, sad and
depressed in spirit, becanso of his
fear, ho saw -some birds fly into a
bush, come out, aud soon aftor go
back again. Drawing near ho saw
two nests, built side by side, and in
each several little unfledged birds.
After he had returned to his work
from time to time he lifted up his
eyes, and watched the birds, who
were coming and going, bearing
food to the little ones. But while he
was looking, only a moment after
ono of the mothers had brought hor
beak full, a hawk swooped down
and bore her away in his talons ; and
shrill were tho cries that poor moth
er uttered struggling vainly under
his grasp. At this sight the laborer
felt his soul more troubled than
before; for said ho "The death of
the mother is the death of tho little
ones just so mine have only me
What will become of them if I an
taken away?" All that day he was
sad and sorrowful, and that night he
could not sleep.
On tho morrow, returning to tho
field, ho said, "I long to see tho lit
ones of that poor mother. Most of
them arc without doubt already
dead." And he bent his steps to
ward the bush. Looking, he was
astonished to see them all looking
hale and strong not one had even
pined. Wondering above measure,
he hid himself to see what would
come to pass. After a littlo time,
he heard a gentle cry aud saw tho
second mother bringing in haste,
tho food she had gathered. Perched
on the twig she divided to all tho
little ones alike. Slio had enough
for all. The orphans were uot neg
lected in their misfortune.
In the evening, the father, who
had so distrusted Providence, "told
the other father what he had seon.
And the other one said, "Why are
you anxious? God never forsakes
his children. His love has resources
which we do not understand. Let
us have faith ; let us hope on, let us
lore ono another, let ue journey on
our ways of lifo in peace. If I die
before you, yon will care like a
father for my children ; if you die
firaf, I will be a father to yours ; and
oven if we both die, boforo they are
old enough to take care of themsel
ves, they will have for their father
the Father which is in Heaven."

John Wesley once was troubled
in regard to the disposition of the
various sects, and the chances of
each in reference to future happi

night transported him in its uncer

"Are there any Roman Catholics
here?" asked the thoughtful Wes
ley. "Yes," was the reply.
"Yes," was again the answer.

mined that the state should not have
a free-state constitution. Then, on
the floors of congress, Toombs and

what really took place in 1S61.
About that lime I called on Presi

he said to me: 'Did you see those

replied thai I had seen some gentle
men, Messrs. Toombs, Stephens and
a North Carolina senator. 'Well,'
said President Taylor, 'those were
the men I meant. But tho biggest
conspirator of all didn't dare to
come.' I asked him who that was,
and the president answored, '-My
