Now both these actions are demanded by the people. There is no doubt of tbat fact. Bnt Harrison fumfli and threatens a withdrawal of all pat- ronage from Republican Senators who tons combine to carry out the expressed desire ol the people. Hia whip baa no terrors for those wild aud woolly from the new states, whoso presence and voles were provided for in otter to maintain waning party supra macy.

When the situation was realized AM- lich rushed over to tbe house to beg the Reed that he compel his sieves tonpiet anything the wicked Senate may do, but Reed dolefully confessed tbat big grip was not so strong tbis see- as last. He may Equelcu a free coinage act in committee but it is doubt inl. Now what will be the result? Mani- festly that all financial legislation will be poatponed or prevented. This leaves the crantry in a perilous condition, bus- ineu stagnation stares us in the face- Men, who have money, are hiding it, boarding it for want of confidence in tie management ol affairs by an adminis- tration that has squandered a surplus left by its predecessor, and enacted a tax law that greatly increases the price of everytbicg need by the consumer, without rendering any equivalent except to speculators and monopolists. Harrison, Hoar, Aldrich and their followers are howling lor tbe imaginary protection ol ihe coloreu voter, who is making no serious complaint, and ds- manding the enactment ol the Federal law, that at one blow places centralization in tbe front and senile personal liberty one hundred years to the rear. What is the matter with these old fogies? Brazil has just revolu- tionized her government and thrown off tbe burdens of monarchy because of the centtalizing efforts oi an otherwise ex- cellent ruler. Shall the United States to gratify a coterie of old fossila, who are bound to the fortunes and fate ot a few monopolists and the decaying lor tunes ol a beaten and humbled political organization, take the only backward atep ol the century And all this in the face of a people, who by a majority of met! a A Few Plain Facts.

A few hints of g-onoral character may be useful to the collector whoso knowl- edge has not yet boon bought in the market of practical experience. Let him.avoid, in tho first place, a servile following of the fashl'dn. Lot him avoid giving an extravagant price for any thing. Tho shortness of his purse is often an actual protection to the col- lector. It makes him' use his wits and gain that knowledge which his wealthy competitor never attains to. Take pictures, for example; tho rich buyer fills his gallery with what he Is pleased to consider masterpieces of art. He bo- gins In ignorance, and tho whole crowd of those WQOBO business it is to minister to uis vanity and extract bis caro that he shall never learn more than they choose to teach aim.

Thore would be little rest for his troubled spirit could he learn that the trustees have selected throe or four works out of many hundred as alone worthy of a place in the national collec- tion.

PKKSIDEHT, LADIES AND GENTLE pleasant duty devolves on me tO' day to declare Ilia welcome ad- dress, I should wiflh that a younger bead, and smoother lips and a more eloquent tongua had this service to penorm, yet 1 gladly accept tbe same. My commission to oerform this service for the people of Quaker City and vi- cinity, where our interests have bad their home from the first, So in behalf of our people I bid you all welcome to Quaker Citv and to our Eighth Annual Institute. Yoa are welcome from all parts ol Guernsey, Noble and Belmont :onnties as well. Tbese are tbe words of truth and soberness and not the of mere formality o rcivility. The welcome we extend to yon full and hearty. Figuratively sp aki'ig we turn ever to you this morning tbe keys of our hotels, stores, shops, banks and depots, hands and hearts and bid you come in and make yourselves .at home and if you don't see what you want ask :or it. In thus showing our confidence n son we ire persuaded you will not abuse it, hut at the close of the institute 'on will return m the keys aud we will >e the richer for tbe transfer, and we can hope to gain something by your at- endance. We have kept tbe keys o! he saloon and Ihe lock up, those I am not commissioned to transfer to you for wo reasons.: First, Institute baa no pat t in these institutions, ao lam per- il ad ed that you who attend institutes laveuoneed for either So we will ;ive you all the other keys. You are invited to attend all sefsior.g if the institute and take part in all the discussions But Mr, President I nyaelf that yon appointed me to this ervice. We meet now and this is a mo e hun formal address of welcome, like "I magnify mine office." My con- motion with stnte board of agriculture nd the other advanced work of be board is well known. ot me give TOII a little unwritten his ory. la 18S1 tbe state board by the leath ol John Klippart, found itself without a secretary. We looked all round to fi ad a successor for Mr. Klip >arti. Ia reading the agricultural saw that there was a man is-Jjummit ounty, who got on .elter than tare-other writer. about he had never attended an agricultural convention or state fair nor hud he ever been in the city of Columbus. We sent a committee to interview, him. They found him in a ditch, mud Iroin head to foot nnder-draioing. He to our mxt meeting. He came. A bar- gain WHS innde and be was secretary of the hoard. But the mere clerical work ol tbe board was not enough for his aciiva brain and nervous temperament. The board or some ot its members at feast bad felt that more was needed and ex- pected o' us than tbe mere holding of annual conventions and ru.mlng a state fair. We proposed to do advanced work, indeed he txoepted the office with this understanding We looked over the slate and saw our crocs were otten said at ruinous prices, bacause tbe farmer did not know the amount produced each year while the buyer has bis trusted agents In every county ol the state to estimate the probab'e amount of each crop, the proba- bio price, etc. We proposed a system ol crop correspondents In each town- ship lo give tha information to tbe farm- er. We fuund too thut fertilizers were being soid in many parts of the stnte tuat were adulterated and almost worth- less and as a protection to tbe farmer hu proposed to ana'yze tbe allow none not analyzed to be snld in state. Michigan had held a few institutes so had Illinois and we pro- oosed if the board would give o! earnings we would inaugurate in- mes iu tbe state. It waa granted and he started and spoke in daytime and traveled after night and held 40 udd institutes iu the state that year, out >f paid the liaveling expenses of tucb. as would not ciye iheir services rte. He called to his aid tbe Prates- sort) of the State University and tbe -i..ue Horticultural Society and then the work waa inaugurated and became pop- ular among a large class of citizens of Ohio. But there was opposition and -his opposition was reflected in tbe iLatu hoard itselt, at one time we only carried to retain tbe appropriation by a jte ol four to fife, these Jour for un- worthy reasons as I always believed, continued their opposition until they were defaated for reelection, or renew- ed by the expiration of their time, or .onvwrteil to our views ot what the arrneisof the etate needed. N.w in iew ol the work done by these lueti- in fllevatmg the farmers ol the tate be would indeed be a bold man wuo would oDoose the cessation ot this work. Chamberlain was called to a higher sphere ot usefulness and his incceesor, Secretary Bonhatn, worthily wears tbe harness and does the work so well begun by Secretary Chamber uin. I am proud of the position I occu- pied in the inauguration ol this work and can only regret that I havenot done more in a fiold almont too ripe for the inrveet. I need not review that we held an Institute tbat first year in Jochrati Hail and all will recollect how uccesdnl it was and it has heen anc- by annual InstiUites, each one ol which was a success. We naya attend nd with City aud still propose lo ittrnatc with them if they deki e. Our ostitutes have been tuccessful in the last and one element ol this success bap been the co operation of the e of Quaker City. Again we bid yon welcome one am' il and hope we may all be bemficed, mentally, morally and socially. President Spencer, then announced hat according to the revised conslitu on it would necessary to decide at hit; convention where the next would nnvene, also tha law required that nny arties voting must sign the constitu' on which was in the hands of Secre- ary Webster. Committees were then announced: Committee on program, H. Keentr, Vin. Wilkin and Edeon Webster; Com- mittee on nominations, Tlios. Webster, 'avid Long, T. M. Johnston, W. P. Hartley and C. P. Commil- ie on resolutions, W. N. Oonden, I. Hall.J. W. Hill, Miss Nora Me- lunu and Mies Ella Keennn; ger- at W. E, Hail end Barn- rd Eagon. As telegrams bad been received stat- us tpenkers, Thome and Crnwford ad "missed the H. Keenan as called on to open discussion on the est method ot planting corn, and spore substance as follows: Lawyers never succeed unless thev eep what may be called a common lace book, in which anv theme of in- or thoughts are jotted own, in order to bp ready lor any emer- ency. If the lawyer jiaji need ol a mmorj-place bcok, DO has the' firmer, which he may jot down bin expert- nee on any particular subject, BO he always know just what he to doing, and Is always ready on my snhisit when called on- Head several il lustra- from bh book, showing how he kept it. For instance read Item showing wben-silo opened, how much stock leJand when fed out. Then turned some of liin corn had bet., in the habit ol drilling corn for several years and dotted down his experience, comparing it with check row, and found by actual measurement and count that i a check row three and one feet apart and three feet between hills c old raise stalks on an acre; while by drilling three teet between rows and one Foot between stalks con Id raise siatks to' the acre making a rfifferencu between them of 3 855 stalks to the'acre in favor of drilling. Check row on same wire yielded bushel, while drilled yielded a fraction over 80 bushels per acre. On land as nearly aiike as possible with 500 leet long had ralsid by check row three and a half feetapari, 03 bushels per acre; by drill- ing over ninety bushels, A faimer If he would succeed must ascertain facts. He must team by actual experience in planting corn, as to the distance ba- tween stalks in drilling. Had known corn to do very well nine inches apart, but he having plenty olioom never went below 12 He had found bv ex- perience tbat it was not the largest atelk that produced the best ear. By large stacks you lo.se corn. Tbe nourishment is absorbed by the stock, leaving little for the ear, hence you'll have a small and often not well filled ear. By choos- ing the largest ears lor seed you increase the (odder and lessen the corn. Aa to beet variety he thought Learning corn the best. I. 0. Hill made inquiry as to which cost tbe least, checked row or drilled. Keeiian replied tbat bethought that he could not answer positively as be had abandoned the check row. But thought drilling the cheaper as check- row was very liable to cause washes, especially on high ground. Cowden afraid to give his personal experience, he thought he was a little like Keenan. He thought Keenan did the measuring and his boys did the work. As to bis experience he preferred -drilling. He tnouijht tbat three or lour stalks to gether were too much, they bad to spread ont too much to obtain nourish- ment. He had made up his mind to drill bis corn next year. He had like most others been unsuccessful with the corn crop this year At beginning ol season refused to plant corn in the thought he would wait until it got dry bnt got impatientjjand at last planted, but corn did no good, had a bad color. He waited till it got dry and planted silo corn, and had better crop from silo corn than the other that was planted several weeks b (fore. I would never plant iu mud again, it I had to wait all summer. Keenan gave bis method of. working corn this season: When ground was so hard commenced plowing but did little good. I sent boys to town to get new shovels and told them to plow un- til they got dirt. Plowed six times in a row. He behaved in plowing, The oftener you go m a row tbe last time does the moat good. Tboa. Webster grew a little corn, he had experience in planting iu the mud. raised a little; he thought he had ground twenty times in a row would make no Impression He planted as soon as be could, thought thoee who waited missed it. he raised some good corn. He wanted ground in order, bnt would plant wet In order 'o get it in early. Thought drill a groat advantage over check row system, drilled three and half teet wide and one foot apart in row Thought three grains in one place roots Borne advocated o'.heisUsoJhjiimfBejaCBeck row ;9 uged> three. He had seven shocks of corn to yield twenty-five bushels, while a fiald close by with two etilfca which did not yield. more than ball BO much Thos. Grlest thought plowing the main thing. Bough plow- ing will let harrow over, the result not properly cultivated. He had never tried drill, but thought check row three and one half feet apart ana three feet be- tween rows the best on account of culti- vating both ways. He believed in proper cultivation and that could only be done thoroughly by cultivating both ways. NOTES. Attendance increased with each ses- sion. The convention was full ol j jkes and goo I humor. President Spencer understands bow an Institute should be managed. The celery displayed by H. Keenan was worthy of exhibition and of most excellent flavor an we can testify. Speakers from a distance were Chas, E. Thorn and .Tames Ot aimer a, Ph D., Columbus; Joshua Crawford, Iberia; 8. W. Wilkin, Londonderry. O.her visitors from a distance were 0. P.' B. Sarchat and Wm. Borton, Cambridge; 0. P. Fwsythe, Craig; W. B. McMunn and sister, Elnora, Lore City, and many others whose names we did not learn. Tbe mistletoe displayed by W, 'N. Cowden attracted no little attention, Tina specimen was brought from Law- rence county where it was taken from an elm tree. This is a beautiful para- site, but like others of its kind, as soon BS it drawn the life and vitality from the tree on which it fastens its hold, it also dies. It is propagated by seeds carried b; birds. Why is U that Quaker City must have the Institute every year? It is not be- cause tbe Quaker City folks are so eel- fijh as to desire to monopolize these conventions, but because of the careless- ness of the farmers in other sections of tbe county, in not presenting invita- tions to the society to meet with them. No one can deny that these institutes are a potent educator of tbe farmer. Now even though thii be the case, is it imposing on the generous hospitality of the good people of Quaker City and vi- cinity to annually hold the convention in that city, which are designed to bene- fit the entire county We agree with them in thinking more interest would ba awakened by at least alternating with some other portion of the county, Let us give lha matter thought and re- member a petition from any place in the county desiring the next convention of the Farmers' Institute may be made Oi-egonjand Wash- ington.

Think of a railway' in tho Holy- Land I And meditate on the (act that the locomotives of tbat railway were in a country which was never heard of until Palestine was hoary with the snows of centuries! Htnrj GUIman, United States Consul at Jerusalem, reports to the Department of State, under date of September 32, that three American locomotives made In Philadelphia, and Intended for the new railway from Jerusalem to Jaffa, had arrived at Jaffa. The Consul adds, and tbe addition does to his Judgement, that it must interest American citizens that the first loci lives ever used in thii ancient lit... were made in the United States. Jaffa, or Yafa, as the natives call It, is the Joppa of the Hew Testament times. Located on the Mediterranean sea, thirty-five miles northwest of Jerusa- lem, it is the seaport of the City of David. Tha population of the place is about of which half are Christiana, Moslems and about 500 foreigners and Jews. Jaffa ia surrounded by orchards, and the flneat oranges of Syria are grown in tha vicinity. Hajular lines of Austrian, French and Russian steamers ply between Jaffa and European ports; and English and Egyptian steamers and many nailing vessels make frequent stops there. The exports are grain, oil, soap, ratslna, cotton, wool, oranges and lemons; and the Imports are manufact- ured goods of all kinds, rice, coffee, tea and sugar. The introduction of a railway from the coast to the City of David will stim- ulate commerce and encourage tourists to make a journey which haa been hitherto one of no little difficulty.
