and had the anti-option bill again pre
sented for action. Tho bill went over
till tomorrow, after a remark by Sena
tor Washburn that he did not intend
to be stampeded oi; to allow tho bill to
be unduly delayed. The subject which
occupied the most of tho day's session
was Senator Vest's joint resolution for
the appointment of a. commission to
havo an agreement made with the
five civilized tribes of Indians for
tho takiug of land in severalty and
for opening the remainder of the lands

With the five civilized Indian tribes for
allotments of their lands in severalty
and for opening Indian Territory to
settlement was discussed without defi
nite action.. The anti-option biil was
then taken up and the restof tne day's
session was occupied by Mr. George of
Mississippi 111 advocacy of that bill.
Notice was given by Mr. Teller that

most of the day was consumed in con
sidering tho senate bili enlarging the
provisions of the act for the distribu
tion of awards made under the con
vention between the United States and
Mexico La Abra claims. It was
bitterly opposed by Mr. Covert of New
York. The bill finally passed by a
iarge vote. The effect of the biil is to
refer the whoic matter to the court of
claims, with power of appeal by either
party. .The members of the ways and
means committee were at once in.
formally notified that a meeting of the
committee would bo held this week to

said Mr. Springer, and not delegated
to a subcommittee. It is important
that this investigation should show the

time and the liabilities of the govern
ment for the future, we wiil know ex
actly how the government stands finan
cially and be enabled to devise a plan
for n-eeting a possible deficit."
In the senate on the 14th the vice
president having presented the mes
age of the president, stating the rea
sons why he had not approved the bill
passed by both houses last session (r
ferring the matter to the court of pri
vate land claims) and havmsr stated
the question to be. Snail the biil
pass, the objection of the president to
tho contrary notwithstanding?" the
vote was about oeing laKen by yeas
and nays, wnen Mr. Sanders inter
posed with a suggestion that some ex
planation should be made of why that
bill should pass. He thereupon en
tered into an argument to show why.
in ins opinion, it should not pass. Mr.
Teller followed in a brief argument in
favor of the but. and was in turn fol
lowed by Mr. Huntou on the same side
of tho question. The biil -went over,
however, without action. 'Tne anti

was some sharp discussion over anovel
amendment presented by Mr. Antho

officers from drawing pay from tne
government in any other capacity, but
it was finally defeated. The uubiica-

carelessly dash against them Their
danger arises directly from thir value,
says the Country Gentleman. Wires
without .barbs would not indict any
wounds, and they would not retard
strong and furious animals.

A bank and ditch is a good mode
for construction. A horse rarely at
tempts, to leap a ditch; and where
there is one on each side of the line,
witn a bank in the centjr a. hor.se or
other animal will mreiy or never at
tempt it. Ine ditches are opened with
several furrows of the plow, and the
earth from these furrows thrown up
by hand between them. Posts are set
in the line at suitib.e distmces and
the wire stretched over tho line at
suitable heights and distances to make
a good fence. Amonc; the many in
stances of the construction of such
fences, none when well made has been
known to faiL
When there are many small stones
scattered over the fields, which the
owner desires to elear off, a low stone
wall may take the place of the bank
and ditches. Iljth these have the
objection of occupying more land tnan
the others, but there are certain lo
calities where they may be employed
without iueonven.en'e; or where the
ditches may be useful fo. open drains
which (being along the side of a fence)
will be but little iu the way of the
cultivation of the fields.

In rutting hay and fodder the length
nf cut is of conquerable iinportan e.
If the nit feed is to be wet and meal
mixed with it the shorter it is cut the
better, fodder particularly, fo. it will
take up the water more readily and
become softer and more digestible a
well as more palatable. If it is to le
fed dry then it" may be cut in lengths
of an in h and one half to two inches,
this length being better tlian a shorter

does not apply. The English farmers
speak of "cliaffln-f' instead of cutting
their hay, and if wo can get hay and
fodder into the condition of chaff as
regards fiuen7ssit w.ll be to our ail
vantage The only objectio 1 to be
made to this short cuttting is the time
it ta'-fes to do it, bat there is usually
plenty of time to spare in winter.
Finrly cut hay, fodder and straw can
be better mixed together than when

Sir. T. It: Terry of Ohio says he finds
that hLs best wheat, where the plants
are crowdetl so as to produce the larg
est yield, does not produce as Iarge
and plump berry as wheat that jrrowa
more thinly and yields less. He be
lieves tho yield is largely determined
by pedigree, and kept on selecting
seeds from the best parts of his fields
with steadily increasing yields. The
idea is well worth thiukinj about.
Possibly oue reason why Mr. Terry's
wheat yields grow better is because he
it constantly maktu? his land richer.
The fact i- true. too. of corn if not of
wheat. Nobidv would think of select
ing s;ed corn from too half-filled ears
that set too lute to fertilize all the
silk, thouarh the kernels of such ears
are often twice as large as on ears
well filled. But with other grains.
oats and barley, for example, the
largest, plumpest grain is always best
for seed. Outs that grow thinly and
produce poorly are light weight, be
cause most of them are affected by
rust, which prevents development 0
