Decrease in the Size of Farms.
The attention of the public lias been
attracted of late te the large tracts of
land owned and worked by capitalists in
the Northwestern states. This has given
many the idea that the tendency of Ameri
can farming is in this direction. Fortu
nately this is net the fact. The success
of farming en an immense scale would
indeed increase the number of such experi
ments in the newer and unoccupied states,
and this, perhaps, will be the result. The
business stagnation the last few years
which has kept capitalists from investing
in ether enterprises, has naturally turned
their attention te farming. By securing
large tracts of cheap lands, and keeping
them under the plow for wheat, a large
apparent profit is made. The first plow
ing breaking prairie sod is expensive ;
but after that wheat can be grown for
several years with little expense excepting
seed and harvesting. All the work is
done by machinery, and with as small
a number of men as possiele. bcll-binu-ing
reapers diminish the labor of harvest
ing. Threshing is done in the field, and
the straw is burned en the ground te get
it out of the way. Of course the soil is
rapidly exhausted, but the owners have
taken the cream of fertility and made it
pay for the land two or three or mere
times before they threw it aside as worth
less. As far as maintaining fertility is con
cerned this policy is the one always
adopted in new countries. Heretofore
with occasional exceptions the newer
states have been occupied by actual set
tlers who come te build homes and become
permanent residents of the commonwealth
Te be sure for a time they unduly exhaust
the fertility of their lauds ; but when the
farm is comparatively small this process is
always stepped sooner than when the
farms arc unduly large. The small farmer
is compelled te maintain a higher state of
fertility because he has fewer acres from
which te defray family and incidental ex
penses. With a large farm a small profit
per acre will maintain its owner in afllu
encc ; but en a small farm the utmost
must be made from every acre.
It is therefore for the public interest in
mere ways than one than the tendency te
monopolize large tracts of land in few
hands should be discouraged. The mere
small fanners there arc in the country the
greater number of independent freeholders
who are the best security for the perpet
uity of popular liberties. Large farmers
require an increased number of dependents
who cannot have the same interests in the
future of the country as the owners of its
soil. It is true that ether circumstances
modify this rule somewhat. The large
numbers of labor-saving implements in
vented in the last thirty years enables one
man te work a larger area of land than
formerly. Without reapers and mowers
the crops of the Northwest could net be
harvested with the present force of labor
ers. Yet taking the country through the
census reports show that during thirty
years the size of farms has gieatly decreas
ed, and this despite the fact that within
thirty years the new states have been occu
pied with railroads which have massed
large tracts in few hands. The figures
from 1830 te 1870 are as fellows :
1S50. Average size of farin- ii."
INK), de. de l'JU
1S70. de. de. 15S
It is probable that the census next sum
mer will show that this tendency continues,
as is natural where land is cheap as it is
in this country, and every man who
cheeses can secure a home of his own
with a few years' labor. There are no
diiuculties interposed in any state te dis
courage or prevent the subdivision of
farms as in England and Ireland, and the
evils which the Irish people are sufiering
from landlerdism, are in little danger of
appearing in this country. Even in the
newer states where large, unoccupied areas
tempt capitalists te buy and held immense
tracts, the tendency in the same. In Texas,
for example, the average size of farms in 1850
was 942 acres. In 18G0 it had decreased
te e91 acres, and'in 1870 te 301 acres. Ne
ether state has se large farms as Texas.
Nevada in I860 had farms of 017 acres ;
but in 1870 they had decreased te 201 acres.
In Illinois, Indiana and Iowa, in 1870 the
average size of farms was 128, 112 and 134
acres respectively. These are much
smaller farms than we of the East imagine
te be the average in these states. Prob
ably, however, tl.Jr- Average is largely
reduced by the increased numbers of
holders of real estate for market gardering
purposes near cities and villages. How
ever induced, the reduction in sizes of
farms shows a better state of cultivation,
and improvement of these commonwealths
in the character of their population. This
country is as yet far removed from some
of the most difficult problems which demand
the attention of political economists and
statesmen in the ever-crowded populations
of the old world. W. J. F. in the Country
In Ged's Pity.
The adventurous traveler in the wilds of
Africa invariably gees armed against the
attacks of gorillas and brutal savages. He
has his firearms, sleeping and waking, at
his side, and he does net dare or dream of
taking his wife or daughter with him
among such deadly perils. He would be
worse than a madman if he did. In the
great cities of the Christianized and civil
ized United States we arc justly horrified
at reading or hearing of the brutalities and
barbarities of the heathen of Seuth Africa.
Yet here in Washington, during this
peaceful Lenten season, a fair and inno
cent young girl, scarcely out of her teens,
at 7 o'clock of a still evening, sets out
from her home, with her prayer-book in
her hand, te attend the sacred services of
her church, her soul full of a child's holy
and happy thoughts, and when within a
stone's threw of her country's capitol, in
the heart of a large population of her fellow-beings,
is knocked en the head, her
car nearly severed from her scalp, and
blinded by her own pure bleed, unhclped
by man, unheeded of Ged, dragged ever
a fence into a vacant let and there throt
tled, bruised and violated for an hour and
a half, when she meant te be at clm.uh
communing with her Saviour, her young,
life blasted, her health destroyed, her
whole future ruined and blighted by a
ferocious brute, whom the tigers of the
jungle would shame te own.
In the name of heaven, let our mothers,
wives and sisters take this peer, stricken
child te their charitable hearts.
Let Congress leek te it that the police
of the District of Columbia be doubled at
once. Let the streets, the alleys, be thor
oughly lighted at whatever cost. Let the
laws of the community be promptly and
rigorously enforced by such firm judges
as Judge Ilagncr, such prosecuting officers
as Colonel Corkhill and Mr. Perry, such
conscientious jurors, irrespective of color,
as fortunately made up the jury in the
Ilirth case. And let the president ponder
well and hesitate long before lie exercises
the pardoning clemency of the executive
office in the face of the sworn verdict of
twelve American citizens. Then will the
resident foreign ministers at the scat of
our government cease te have reason te
write home that in America the laws are
An Artist's Heme.
A writer in the Londen World describ
ing the charming home of the painter Mil
lias, takes his reader through the bril
liantly lighted hall between its rows of
stately pillars te the bread staircase, along
which runs a dado of marble, and en which
lies a rich Indian carpet. Against the wall
of the wide landing a marble basin
which has a special water supply of its
own is surrounded by ferns and mess. A
sea-lien, with a fish in its mouth, and
water issuing from its nostrils, has ap
parently iust risen from its depths. This
curiosity of natural history, designed by
the possessor and executed in highly pol
ished black marble, is most life-like. Mar
ble busts by Burns of Mrs. Millias and two
of her daughters preside ever all. Passing
onward we turn te the left, and enter
the lefty studio, forty feet long,
which seems te vanish into the green
woods of the tapestry beyond. Any curious
stranger finding himself alone in this
chamber of art might be startled, net se
much by the weirdness of the lay figures
as by the various devices of the artist,
were they suddenly te reveal' themselves.
At the end of the room a long trap deer
opens, by which pictures descend into the
regions below. Clese at hand there is a
winding iron staircase for the artist and
his assistants. Te the right a heavy cur
tain can be withdrawn, showing an im
mense folding deer, through which the art
treasures are carted away te the Royal
academy en receiving day. In ether parts
of the wall mysterious and invisible little
doers open, serving the purpose of bolt belt
holes for the artist when liyiug from a sit
ter, or a retreat for the father when
making sudden descent en his family. We
pass through the folding doers into a scene
of tranquillity, where we find quiet nooks
and undiscovered corners under the
shadow of spreading palms and in the
midst of flowers. The chairs and couches,
sofas and settees, are covered with exqui
site brocade, and arc se grouped and
fashioned that friends may unite in coun
cil or couples enjoy an uninterrupted
tete-a-tete at will. The fireplaces are filled
with plants, through the leaves and
ilewers et which glitter the sides el
repeusse brass. Rare cabinets, quaintly
outlined, stand sharply defined against
the still undecorated pale gray walls. All
are beautiful, but the one with silver
images in niches is also historic, having
belonged te Charles I. In the middle
drawing-room a large, square bay window
overlooks the beard walk of Kensington
gardens in the daytime, and shows the
living panorama as it passes te and
fro ; at night the tableau xirant becomes
a picture of still life, when the rich crim-sun-velvet
drapery is drawn behind Michael
Angele's group of " Leda and the Swan,"
artistically bringing out the noble features
of the composition. En suite with the
drawing-room a dining-room harmonizes
with the rest, the fioers of all being par
qucterie and the carpets like that of the
staircase, Indian. Frem a deer behind a
large screen the mysteries of service arc
silently performed by aid of a lift. Having
gene the round of the home circle, we
emerge once mere en the lovely spot where
the sea lien is yet in the act of swallowing
his fish, and the water is still flowing from
his nostrils; where Mrs. Millais and her
daughters welcome their guests, and
where groups of well-known faces from
the world of politics, literature, fashion
and the arts discuss the questions of the

chief justice, but the Senate proved refrac
tory. James N. Tyncr is traveling the country
for the third term. Grant made him post
master general and he is supposed te have
get fat en the drippings of unclean con cen
tracts: Jeseph P. Bradley decides in favor of a
third term, and se does William Streng.
They were placed en the bench of the su
preme court by Grant for the purpose of
ever-ruling one of its previous decisions.
Edwards Pierrepont is going te the
Chicago convention te support the third

States district attorney, then attorney
general, and finally minister te England.
William W. Belknap is extremely solici
tous for the third term. Grant appointed
him secretary of war, and thus gave him
an opportunity te make money out of post pest

Jehn A. J. Creswell, familiarly known
as Chorpenning Creswell, is trying te get
a delegation from Maryland te Chicago
for the third term. Grant appointed him
his first postmaster general, and Creswell
is understood te have put his influence
where it wsuld de the most geed for him
self and friends.
The list might be greatly extended ;
but the foregoing will de as samples of the
whole N. T. Sun.
On Wednesday at the stated meeting of
the Philadelphia society for the promotion
of agriculture, Dr. J. W. Gadsden read a
paper en " Pleure-pneumenia and its Sup
pression." It is stated that the disease is
better known as " The Lung Plague of
Cattle." It is a malignant fever introduced
into the system of a healthy animal by
contagion. It is a specific disease, different
from all ether diseases of man or beast,
net influenced by expesuse te inclem
ent weather, bad ventilation, changes
of temperature, &c, which might cause
ordinary inflammation of the lungs. It is
the most destructive of all cattle disease
because it is the most insidious. It has a
period of incubation which is variable and
there is often an interval of from one te
two months from the reception of the con
tagion te the first general symptom of the
disease. The usual time, however, that it
remains latent in the system appears te be
from ten days te two months. In many
cases this disease creeps en very slowly,
the only symptom being a slight cough but
of a peculiar character.
Dr. Gadsden maintained that this dis
ease never originated in this country, but
spreads as the result of contagion ; there
fore it can be prevented. In winter, when
the cattle are confined te the stables, and
but little communication with ether herds
takes place, this malady diminishes in se
verity. Virginia supplies a large number
of the cattle sold at the Baltimore cattle
markets. Up te November 1st the special
of the governor quarantined 27 herds,
which included 408 animals.
Dr. Gadsden examined cattle with this
disease in the state of New Yerk, Pennsyl
vania and Virginia, and has no hesitation
in declaring the disease there prevailing te
be the same which occasioned such losses
in England. It is quite time our people
had awakened te the importance of this
subject, for Canada is new endeavoring te
secure the cattle trade of the country. In
Philadelphia alone the Philadelphia steam
ship company had made arrangements last
spring te ship 700 head of live cattle per
week in England, but the entire trade is
new stepped by reason of the embargo.
The question is hew can we get rid of
this disease ? Certainly net by the penny
wise and pound-foolish method of cheap
inspectors. Cheap terms with the unfor
tunate owners of diseased cattle, promis premis
ing them 83 a piece when they could get
$20 by selling them te a dealer, and allow
ing the cattle markets, railway stations
and ferries bringing cattle from ether
states te be unguarded. Baltimore has been
sending us about 400 per week, and it is
estimated there are from one hundred te
one hundred and fifty diseased cattle in its
vicinity. Maryland has no law te prevent
the sale of such animals.
The official report en pleuro-pneumenia
among cattle in the state of New Jersey
states that from recent investigation made
it is evident that the disease was being in
troduced from Pennsylvania. Four
months inspection have discovered sixteen
lets of diseased cattle, containing 217 head,
40 of which were found infected with con
tagious pleuro-pneumenia, and, with the
rest, sent back te Philadelphia.
Mr. Themas J. Edge, secretary of the
Pennsylvania beard of agriculture, stated
be had an interview with the governor rel
ative te the diseased herd at Elm station,
en the Pennsylvania railroad. The gov
ernor expressed a desire te co-operate in
anything done according te law. Although
the law permits the killing of diseased cat
tic, there is nothing te permit the killing
of cattle net diseased. In one herd in Le
high county ten animals were found di
seased. The governor proposed the atii
mals should be paid for at the time of kill
ing. The only way in which the disease
could be get rid of was te take possession
of the herd and treat them as if they be
longed te the state. Even then that might
net prevent the disease, as the diseased
cattle are constantly arriving from Balti
more. There arc scattered all ever the
state some 300 or 400 official reporters
whose duty it is te report all cases of dis
eased cattle. The average price paid for
the slaughtered cattle is $1G.71. Since
March 27, 128 animals have been killed and
the price paid was $1,102.50.
