TBE SATEWA?. We make the followihg extract from Gore's letter to his Sioux City Tribune, us to his impressions ot men and things in Lemars.;-v He writes under date of May H. "Less than eight years ngo I was on this same groundj and had hard work to obtain shelter and lodging at the one farm house which .occupied the site, of the present town. Those eight years have been sulScient to work a wondertul changui and the term '^gateway" would bo no mis-v noiner when applied to the Lcinars of today. ,;;Thc town is livelyj bu^iinuss seems brisk, and business men are in good spirits. ,;, :"�. , Among the contemplated improvements for the present season, is a fifteen thousand dollar school house. The plans and spcci-(iciitions arc looked tor diiily. As soom na possible nftcr their arrival the work will, be lot by contract, and it is e.\pectud that the building will be finished this' season. 'J'here is now about lour thousand doilarn in xlic district treasury, and to inuut the remaining expense of the iiuwscliiiol house un thousand dollars in bonds have been voted, for which an oftur of niiioty-eiglit per cent is now being considered. It U hoped that they ciin be negotiated at pai-. Ground has just been broken for a new slcam fliini'ing mill which will beofgretit viiluo to the bisincssinterpsts of the plaw. The "Burns Brothers, of Illinois are at the head of this project. They have employed J. D. Perkins to superintend the atono and orink work of the structure, and J. W. Walker to look after the wood work. The building will be located on the south side of the railroad track and a short distance below the depot. The main building is to be thitty-six by fifty feet, besides engine room. The mill will contain six run of stone, and a seventh will bo added if required, which will give the mill a capacity of two hundred and fifty barrels of flourperdny. The same parties will also build an elevator adjoininjj their mill, and about the same size-both buildings to be completed in time for the in'esent season's whaot crop. . Ii. D. Clny. who hns lieen looking about this legion since last September, has today opened a real e�!tnte, insurance nnd collection ngoncy, and j)ropose3 to make the real estate business lively; He is a young man, full of; good business ideas, and storts out with a list of about twenty thousand acres of as fine land as can be founid in the west. This nftcrnonn I took n il look. through the stock yoids nndj/eeding j^unds of Messrs.-Young AGorkcry,', This'firm is doing a large nnd general' merchandising Uusiness, deal in real estate, keep a splendidly equipped livery stable, and handle �tdckW all kinda Their sales of horses and mules^ for i 1876 covei ed about six hiii\0icd I eii^ Besides this they fed nnd shipped two hundred and fifty to three hundred steers.

But I find several, others who are very pijonnunced Democrats, andtu ^legion who. itrlB opposed to tbo present ndministration. The party, howovcrj has no organization here, nnd there is a good deal of preliminary work to be done !�:*get the Demo iici�trengtlV: of, Plymouth county in working order /or the coming campaign. U. D. Hoffman, a German Dejiiojci^, has just'completed a commcdioiis addition to his Dubuque House. The addition is twenty two by thirty-six feet, two stories Chicago Tribune. The decision of the Board of Centennial Commissioners to close the, International building and grounds on Sundays Ib a grave mistake. It is full of disaster to the success of the exhibition, although it may be in perfect consonance with puritanical bigotry and folly. It is beyond this an act of flagrant injustice to thousanda of people. It is an act of rank discourtesy to Europeans and to European-born residents of this country, to invite them to thia exhibition and then shut its doors in their faces one day in the week, without-the grace to remit their expenses for that day. They thereby compel thousands of people to remain Idle one day, with nothing to do and no place to go, and the privilege of paying ten dollars or more for their day's idleness. It is still more an act of discourtesy t'liut, after inviting Europeans here, an attempt should be made to force an observance of Sabbatarian notions upon people who are not Sabbatarians. Viewed in its most favorable aspects^ it is a narrow-minded, bigoted, and puritanical act, and shows that the managers of the Centennial arc no farther advanced than the Puritaiis were 200 years ago. But if Philadelphia proposes to enforce a Sunday law in this respect, why not in all ? If it is a breakage of the bunday to visit the Centennial buildings and look at pictures, machinery, and other objects, is it not wrong also for hotels to do extra work at extortionate price, forstieet cars to run, for railroads and telegraph oflBccs to transact bu8ine,ss, for private conveyances to be used, for barbers to shave, for soda fountains to sizzle? Where does the distinction come in ? Afler thoy have shut out the people from their show on Sundays, what are they going to do with them ? They can't coop them up. in the churches, because there isn't room, for them, and, oven if there were, there arc thousands of people who don't care to pay un extortionate price for the privilege -of going to a Philadelphia church on a blazing summer's day. They go there to see the exhibition, nut to go to church, and they will find themselves cheated out of just one-seventh of their time, and not only cheated out of their time, but to pay an outrageous price for the privilege of being cheated-all of which will tend to give foreigners a most exalted opinion of our much-vaunted liberty and equality, as well as of our consistency, when they find that in ev m-y large city in the country, parks, libraries, art-gaileries,niuscums,theatres, concert-rooms, and almost every other form of amusement and entcrtainmoiit, are thrown open to the public on Sunday, while the International Exhibition alone is closed, and thereby ceases to be international and becomes a puritanical show, regulated by Blue Laws. There is another serious feature to be considered in this matter. The closing of the exhibition on the first day of the week virtually excludes the working class of people, who arc the ones to be most benefited by such an exhibition. Sunday is the only day upon which tens of thousands of them can go, because they are engaged iif earning their bread by hard labor every other day in the week. As a Philadelphia paper remarks : "Theje would have been more visitors qn Sunday than any other day, and thr3e-fourths of them from the working classes. Sunday trains Would have run from New York and Baltimore, hring-ing multitudes from these cities and the intermediate towns and villages; so it is quite safe to calculate that the action of the managers will prevent two or three million people from availing themselves of an opoortunity for entertainment ond instruction such as they have never had before, and never will have again." Again, as if determined to place every possible obstacle in the way of the success of the Exposition, some of the managers have dug up a park ordinance that was obsolete years ago, forbidding the sale of wine, beer, or other liquors in Fairmount Park, and have attempted to enforce it, and thus to cut off thousands of people who swelter through Philadelphia heat this summer,, which is worse than other heat, from any beveragrf except the impure water of the Schuylkill, which is surface water befouled with drainage and sewage, and this is the form of entertainment tc which Erench-men, Germans, th^Pjuglisb,: and other Europeansj are invited! The effect of the one measure is to compel the ueople to pay from ten to twenty-five dollars for the privilege oflisteuing to a dull Philadelphia sermon on a hot Sunday, or pay the same price for Ipafingi about hotels and'trying to'kill timfe.' The effect of the other is to drive people into the city saloons and force them to pay three or four prices for villainous decoctions. If the managers o'f the Big Sbo.w are going to enforce puritanical ideas, why are they not consistent? AVhy do they do not carry out the Blue Laws to the limits, compel evei-y man, woman, and child. to  go to church, imprison every person who is not in bed at 9 p. ro., pillory every yoiing man found speaking to 'a young woman, and bang a few old women as an illustration oi the freedom and equality of this "great and gelorious kedntry." Betweeu the Puritanism of the; menagers and the rapacity of the people ofiPhiladelphia, it will be little wonder if the Centennial does not prove to.;he a miserable failure. btoal Tones. [Written for tlio Pkntinei. by one of the most expericoded farniera, gnrdrnera nnd fruit growers in the Unilud Stales ] LEARNING FARMING. When intelligent young men are de sirous of learning the business of farming in the most scientific manner, they are met with the difficulty that no agricultural institutiohs exist in this country, under the management of souud, practical farmers. Those that do exist are managed by "Professors," who have had little or no practical experience in farming; and the consequeooe is, that their labors generally .consist in making experiments, which result in nothing of much value to the world. Young men who desire to learn farming must, therefore, go somewhere else than to "Agricultural Colleges" to learn the practical part of the business-to some intelligent farmer who is noted for the extent of his operations, and his skill in his business, even if they work for theii board, or pay for the privilege of working on such a farm for a year or two, after they have acquired a knowledge of agricultural chemistry to aid them in their vocation in alter life. The writer has a very poor opinion of the ability of "Professors of Scientific Agriculture" to manage a farm successfully, and in nine cases in ten their theories will fail when they come to practical test. The proof lies ip the fact that for 30 years we have had State and other Agricultural Colleges among us, and yet they have not dc monstrated their Utility to practical farmers in the least dcRree. FEEDING MILCn cows. "I have in the An experienced farmer says : liracticcd feeding at .5 o'clock morning. Hay first, and roots and bran afler the hay eaten. Turn out and water about 8 o'clock, and return to the stable after a short time out for drink and exercise, but not long, unless the weather is fine. I iced iill the! roots and bran for the day at one feed." Once a day, to feed roots, meal, or bran is eaough, then feed on hay for the rest of the day." This system, of course, applies only to feeding in the fall, winter, and spring before cows go to pasture. The .same man adds : "My mowings are all cut twice in the season. Would be glad to cut it before it is fairly headed out. Grass is never cut too early, but mostly too late. Cut it early, and cut it.the second time. The cheapest feed that I can rai.sc is dried grass and fodder corn. Boots cost me mcst, but they are very valuable. I shall raise more instead of less. Bran is worth all it costs for feed, and also all it cost.? as a fertilizer afte ward. 'short horns for beep. The best beef cattle in the world are the Short Horns. This dues not admit of a doubt. They require good pastures, as they will not thrive on scanty pastures at all. Where the Devons would keep in good condition they would lose flesh rapidly. But with an abundance of feed in winter and summer they make tihe best beef cattle known. Cows of this breed often reach from l;500 to 1,800 lbs, live weight, agd sell to the butcher for 8100 to 8150. A five year old cow lately killed, on failing to breed, contained 200 lbs. of tallow. vktce op potatoes. Last season was singularly favorable to potato growing in nearly every part of the country; and the consequence was the price went down very low. This season farmers may be inclined to plant less seed than lost year, but they: will make a mistake if they do, as the probability is that the season will be less favorable than last year, and that the bugs will be very destructive, which will put up the price next,fall very high. Don't be deceived, farmers, by the result of last sciison ; but plant just as many potatoes as ever and fight the bugs to the end. Suppose you lose half your crop by this pest, the other half will be worth enough more to make , up the loss in quantity. Obtain your Paris green be-'fore you need it, so as to be prepared for the battle. It sold last season in New �York,by the single pound at 40 cents, and it' ought tq be sold everywhere at about that price. � ticks on sheep.

At the Produce Exchang^ the matter was much discussed, and it was agreed on all hands that if Hindoo economical labor and cheap transportation via Suez Canal, aie thuit coming in competition with us, > it may be ere long a ecrlous business for ottr farmers, unless they find.wavs and means to cheapen production. How that is to be done no one ventures to say, but done it must be, if we are to retain England as our princi . pal customer. ,. Some dealers were inclined to pooh-pooh the matter intimating that the story had been gotten up simply to '"bear" the market here; but, on reference to printed circulars and market reports of" previous date by moil, it was found that there was no doubt whatever that wheat fiom Calcutta has been placed in the Liverpool market, and that it was meeting with a Teady sale. _.-�-..>��� -'� nrSTJSTSIAL ITEKS. OEKZEmTIAL ABDSESS'- Selivered by Fz'esident Grant. The following address was deliverd by President Grant at the opening of the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia May 10,1876: My Countrymen : It has been thought appropriate upon this Centennial occasion to bring together in Philadelphia 'for popular inspection specimens of our attainments in the industrial and fine arts, and in literature, science and philosophy, as well as in the great business of agriculture and of commerce, that we may the more thoroughly appreciate the excellencies and deficiencies of our achievements, and also give emphatic expression to our earnest desire to oulti vatc the frletidships of our fellow-members of this great fainily of natiorts. The enlightened agricultural, commercial, and manufacturing people of the world have been invited to send hither corres-)onding spccimenis of their skill to ex-libit on equal terms in friendly competition with out own. To this invitation they have generously responed, and for so doing we tender tbem our hearty thanks. 'The beauty add otility of the contributions will this day be submitted to your inspection by the managers of this exhibition. We are glad to know that a view of the specimens of the skill of all nations will afford to you unalloyed pleasure as well as yield to you available and practical knowledge of so many of the remarkable results of the wonderful skill existing in enlightened communities. One hundred years ago our. country was new and but partially, settled. Oar necessities have comp'dled os to chiefly expend our means and time in felling forest.s, subduing prjtiries, building dwellings, factories, shipSj-doeks,warehouses, roaUa, canals, machinery, etc., and most of our schools, churobes,- libraries, and asylums have be�ia established within a hundred ycar�.
