Greund-Xut Urenlng Again.
Raising ground-nuts in this state is
again recommended by these who knew
nothing about growing them. It has often
be.en tried, and every experiment we ever
heard of was the same an utter failure.
"We have tried it ourselves, giving it per
sonal attention, and produced larger and
finer looking nuts than we ever saw in the
Philadelphia market. But when they were
opened there was nothing there ! South
ern Jersey soil might be adapted te grow
ing them ; but the ground or pea-nut is a
Seutern fruit, and these who attempt te
grew them will have their labor for their
Raising ground-nuts in Pennsylvania,
and in this latitude, is en a par with rais
ing upland cranberries and whortleberries
in gardens, and ligs upon the farm. Com
mon sense, without going te the expense of
experimenting, ought te teach everyone of
This is the mania, just new, in a num
ber of counties in this state, and as it pro
duces geed profits mere, it is claimed,
than many of the regular farm crops
Heme people who have written against the
use of the "dirty thing," arc quietly grow
ing it for ethers te use. Seme years age a
person in Bucks county, who denounced it
roundly, as he did many ether matters that
did net square with his eccentric ideas,
was the first te apply te us for a couple of
papers of the " Havana " seed, and which
was said te produce large and very profit
able crops, for his own planting ! One
question in regard te tobacco-growing may
be taken for granted, te wit : that, like all
ether products, whether of the shop or
farm, there will sooner or later be a supply
c qual te the demand, and a little mere,
when any excess of profits ever ether re
sults of labor will become equalized. Just
new, though tobacco-growing may yield
mere profit than most ether crops of the
farm, notwithstanding that it is a gi cat ex
hauster of the soil, it will net divert se
much of the attention of the thoughtful
farmer as te interfere with his regular
routine crops, which he can produce with
out having his conscience twitted with his
work, as some may with tobacco.
Loek te the Reads.
Read graders are getting very much in
use in the West, where factories for their
exclusive construction arc iu operation. If
they are geed machines they de the work
well and rapidly and at se much less cost
than the old slew-going method as quickly
te run it out of practice when once tried.
Geed reads arc a jrrcat blessing te man and
beast. The traveler in passing along ever
a fine read at once sets down the popula
tion as far ahead in their civilization and
social science te these of ether sections
where the reads arc cither neglected or re
garded as of secondary importance in the
routine duties of every day life. We have
noticed several instances where there has
been much ellbrt and contention te have a
new read opened, and a geed deal of money
expended in getting the matter favorably
through the county court, which, when
opened, is allowed te remain, in view of
the petty cost of it, only half graded, the
gutters only half made, with stumps and
rocks lying almost in the centre of the bed
admitting of barely room enough for a
single vehicle te pass. The gutteis, tee
instead of being made straight ami ser
viceable, are made te run round these ob
structions, which causes them te dam up
with weeds, dirt, .Vc, se astotluewthc
water upon the read bed, washing it into
holes, which prove dangerous te horses
In transplanting trees the care should be
gin in lifting them in the nursery. In the
hurry of the season for the transplant
ing season is sheit sometimes the pro
per care cannot be given in taking them up
Hence, it is the ber-t plan, where it is al
lowed, for the purchaser te dig up his own
trees. They should then be protected
against the sun iu hauling them home, and
should be "hceled-in" that is. the roots
te be covered with earth until the holes
arc dug anil ready te receive the trees, and
then set as the holes are prepared for them.
The holes should be dug ide enough te re
ceive all the roots spread out, except per
haps a few et the larger ones,
and deep enough and a lew inches
te spare, which should be loosened
well se that the tree may stand
.a little deeper than it steed in the nursery.
Where the tree has grown rapidly in the
nursery and the branches are long, we re
commend pruning, whatever may be said
by some te the contrary. The soil with
which the holes are filled up should be
rich, whether it be the soil taken out or
brought from elsewhere. Let the ground
around the tree be pretty firmly pressed,
and left rather bowled, and then mulch
with rich stable-manure, which should be
repeated once or twice through the season
it the weather should be rather dry. It is
net advisable te water much, if any,
around the tree when planted ; but where
the soil is rather dry it should be mois
tened before it is returned te the hole.
Land-Owning in Europe.
Reading some of the editorials iu agri
cultural periodicals about farmiug and
farmers iu Europe, we see that the idea
is held up that it is next te impossible for a
peer man ever te become able te own land.
On the contrary, they say that, even what
he earns by his daily labor is wrested
from him by his rapacious landlord. New
it is very true that laud is dearer in
most countries of Europe than it is here
even in the Middle states ; yet it is also
true that no nation in the world are there
mere land-owners for the population than
in France. Germany, Austria, Italy,
Helland and Belgium come next. In
Ireland it is mere difficult than elsewhere
te bwn land ; but it is principally for
the reason that the Irish are less thrifty
and ambitious, and have been se
long se as te allow what land they did pos
sess te slip out of their hands into the
hands of ethers who were able te purchase
it. Whisky-drinking has had most te de
with this. The Irish, it is true, are an in
dustrious people, and barring this weak
ness would de well enough if the land and
tenant laws were all that they ought te
be. It is probable, however, new that the
Liberals are in power again, that some
thing will be done of a solid, practical na
ture in their behalf. It is difficult te guard
against famine. A few years age here
in our own country Kansas, Xebraska,
&c. the farmcis suffered terribly from
the attacks of the potato beetle, grasshop
pers, &c, and required help te be sent te
Given up by Docteis.
' Is It possible tliat Mr. Godfrey is up and jit
work, and cured by se simple si remedy?"
"I assure you it is true that lie is entirely
cured, and with nothing but Hep Hitters ; and
only ten days age his doctors gave liiin up and
said he must die !"
" Well-aday ! That is remarkable ! I will go
this day and get some ler my peer Geerge 1
knew fiep9 are geed." nl5-2wd&w
What de you de when you have a cold ? ask
ed a little boy et Jenes the ether day. Cough !
replied Jenes. I don't, for my lha gives me l)r.
Themas' Electric Oil and it always steps my
coughing. Fer sale by H. B. Cochran, drug
gist, 137 and 139 Xerth Queen street, Lancaster,
G. A. J. Gadbels, of Breckvillc, Canada, cer
tifies that he was prostrated by a malarial dis
ease contracted in Texas, and was quickly and
completely cured by the use of Warner's Safe
Pills and Safe Bitters. He adds : ' I shall never
travel in that climate without your Sale Fills
and Bitters as a part of my outfit."

We further beg leave te report te the honor
able court, that from the fact of the auditors
last year having culled the attention of the
court te the heavy costs for cases heard and
disposed of before magistrates et the city and
county, the auditors were desirous et knowing
whether it had had any effect en these officials,
se as te show a reform in that direction, and
en examination we find that the costs in these
cases were $2,936.77 less during last year than
for the former, which shows a gratifying re re
lerm, and the auditors hope that these officials
will continue in keeping down these costs as
mucn as nicy pessiuiy can.
The annual costs of public printing for the
county came also te our notice. These ex
penses are heavy and, in our opinion, might be
In examining the accounts or the treasurer
of the beard et prison inspectors of Lancaster
county, we discovered that the treasurers did
net charge themselves with all the money re
ceived from the county commissioners- and
prison keeper, which accounts ler the auditor
having a balance in the hands of these treas
urers, and en examination of these and ether
prison officials we find that it has been the cus
tom of the prison treasurers te draw some
times mere money from the county treasury
than it required ler the payment of their
monthly bills. This ever-plus, as admitted by
the prison officials, was placed in the hands of
the prison keeper ler his convenience in buy
ing revenue stamps, whenever the salesman
at the prison could effect a sale of cigars ; the
allegation being that had they net received
this ever-plus they would have had no money
te buy these revenue stamps.
The auditors would further report that from
the quantity and quality of the previsions con
sumed at the county prison, they cannot resist
the conclusion but that there is a leak some
where, but just hew te find it the auditors
think is beyond their ingenuity. The difficulty
seems te be the lack of a proper system of
accounting between the prison keeper and
the beard of prison inspectors. That
the prison keeper with the power of
disposing of the large quantity of goods
manufactured by the inmates should lall se
lar behind the necessary funds, as te require
the inspectors te leave balances in his hands
ler which they are cliargcd by the county
treasurer and directly responsible te him.
argues a system of house keeping
which reflects en all parties connected
with this institution ; destroys that system of
checks and vouchers by which alone the peo
ple can be protected, and leaves a loophole
iiem which te escape the closest scrutiny of the
accounting officers. If the prison cannot earn
enough money te pay for its own revenue
stamps, without requiriug the county treasur
er te de se, the public ought te knew it, and
prison labor might be made mere remunera
tive by hiring it out under a svstem et con
tracts, as is done in ether localities, when the
public have become tired of the experiments
of running reformatory and corrective institu
tions en a non-self-supporting basis.
Theauditersjind from an examination erthe
bills renderedjthatever $800 worth of meat has
been purcaseu at prices lar above that allowed
te be paid ler the meat furnished te the prison
it is a lair inference that the meat is used by
the prison family. It se, there must be either
great consumption et meat or else great ex
travagance, as this sum, en a carelul calcula
tien, would supply the table of an ordinary
hotel with net less than twenty pounds of fine
meat per day. It must be remembered that
this meat bill does net include the ether large
bills iorpeultry. While upon this subject the
auditors would further beg leave te call atten
tion te heavy bills of dry goods, cliarged te the
prison keeper's personal account, and net
shown te have been used outside of the prison
family, amounting in the aggregate te $800.
The auditors likewise find ablUefiSOchsrse I

stitution pass ever the Items which should
fortify their accounts and deal only iu bal
ances, which the public when these accounts
are filed according te law for inspection, have
no mere means et verifying than if no accounts
had been filed.
The auditors, however, iu conclusion are
able te give the taxpayers the gratifying in
formation that at least some of the unneces
sary appendages et the prison have been lop
ped off by the new inspectors, such as matron,
at a salary of $SU0, ami cigar boss at a salary of
$650 ; and ether retrenchments are premised.
We have also inquired into the finuncial

was $3GS.971.7J. with a balance in the treasury
of $03,787.75. The bended indebtedness of the
