When the full history of President
Garfield's extraordinary case iewritten
no one immediately connected with it
will appear in brighter colori than Dr.
B. A. Boynton. People generally do
not understand the character and abili
ties of this gentleman, 'who took upon
himself the, responsible but humble du
ties of nurse at the request of his near
relatives and life-long intimate fri ends.
Dr. Boyntnii is a man of independent
fortune, hil wealth being estimated at
mote than one hundred thousand dol
lars; For many years he has had one
of the largest practices in Cleveland, his
professional income having been from
$15,000 upward yearly' For some
years also he has filled with great amp
tancethe, professorship of physiology
in the Hemcepathic Hospital College at
Cleveland, one of the oldest and best
medical schools of the West. , As an ac
complished and' amiable, instructor he
has exerted a wide influence on succes
sive classes of • medical studente now
practicing throughout the country. He
is a homeepathist of what is known • as
the liberal school; that is, he believes
in practicing to cure his patients. He
is tree to confess that in certain diseases
and in certain circumstances treatment
recommended by allopathic' theories is
better, and in other cases homceopathic
treatmentis to be preferred.
Not himself a surgeon as distinguish
ed from isphysician, his knowledge of
that branch of practice is considerable.
For many years he has been closely as
sociated with Dr. Schneider, of Cleve-
land, who for a long time has , had
charge of the surgery of the Lake Shore
Bailioad, and whore reputation as a suc
cessful practising surgeon is excellent
'Dr. Boynton is still in the prime of
intellectual life, being forty-six years
- of age. Being howe.ver somewhat
broken in health be decided last
spring to retire from active practice
and devote himself to les3 engrossing
pursuits. With this in mind be dispos
e& of his practice. getting fee it ilea of
the largest sums ever paid for a clien
tage of the sort in the West, and started
- for Kansas
.; where he thought of em
barking some of bilk capital in stock
raising. ' He has scarcely reached the
state, however, before he was asked by
President and Mrs. Garfield to attend
her in her serious Illness last spring.
Laying aside his business enterprises
he obeyed the call and remained with
the family till the most serious stages
of the illness were passed.. He was
called West again by the terrible rail
road accident which brought. upon him
a - crushing personal affliction, and while
this blow was still fresh the news dame
that his cousin, the President, had been
assassinated. His duty was with the
family; he came to the White House as
their guest, friend and kin, and after
' the great trial of their strength and
faith began remained with them doing
' what he Could to save a life so precious
to all and one bound to himself by so
Dr. Boynton is personally a man.of
sunny and amiable disposition, very ad
verse to quarrels, tolerant in his opin
ions, and above all upright and truthful
in character. In this connection it may
be well to state the precise relationship
of the doctor and - the late President.
Their fathers were half brothers, and
married sisters. They are thefefore fall
first cnusinson their mothers' side, and
half cousins on their fathers' side.
They were both born in Orange town
• ship, _Cuyahoga county, Ohio, were
. playmates in boyhood and have been
life-long and intimate friends. —Evening
Lunt AT THE WHITE Horse.—Of the
domestic happinesi of the Ourflelds at
the White House the veteran Ben Perky
Poore writes to the Boston Journal as
follows: "The short time that the GU-
I:fads occupied the White House before
assassination was a continued scene
of domestic enjoyment. "Grandma"
Garfield had. ;until she, returned to Men
tor. an honored place at the family
table, at her son's right hand, and was
always waited on ffrst, whoever else
might be present. On the other side
of the besident sat Jamie, who was his
father's pet. Harry,, the oldest boy,
always sat nest his mother, and then
Miss Molliewho ia approaching woman-.
hood, Irwin and little Abram, who •is
but nine years of age. Mrs. Garfield is
a believer in good fare, and there was
always an abundance of wholesome,
nutritious food with good coffee, tea
and milk. Flowers from the conserva
tory adorned the table at every meal.
After dinner President Garfield used to
indulge in a game of billiards, having
promptly restored to its place the bil
lard table banished by Mr. Hayes. Oa'
casionally he would indulge in a cigar,
and as he was not averse to a glass of
champaign or Rhine wine or lager
beer, although he drank temperately
and without hypocrisy. He liked as
night came on to tide a gallop on horse-
back. and he area a fearleis rider. But
he has been snatched rudely from this

The Yew South.
A few weeks ago there was printed ;„
in these columns a detailed statement of
the vast amount of capital that hal .j
been absorbed by the South within the L..,
past year by the different - syndicates
which ho sought, control of her rail
roads. •Millions of Northern capital
have already been invested in the stock
- of existing companies; new lines and
new combinations and new connections.
have been projected and perfected, and
large purchases of the . ' uncultivated
lands have been made by actual settlers.
A new impetus has thus been gives to
railroad building in that section of the
country, ands new energy bas been in
fused into business generally,'by 'this
liberal disbursement of ready money. -
More xecently we chronicled the Yery
successfia meeting, held in one of the
Southern cities by the National Educa
tional Association, for the-purpose of
stimulating popular education in that
region among hoth the white aud the
black races, which . was regarded as
another good omen fur tire South, be
can=e ignorance is a disarace and a ser
ious obstacle in the material and moral
develepraent of any people. That sea
pion of the National Education brought
the 'real condition and wants of the pec- .
ple of the South to the attention - of the
North, and the vital importance that
some Congressionat action, like that
embodied in ~the Burnside bill mow
pending in Congress, should be speedily
taken to assist in establishing a common
school system. The late lamented Gar
field, who was himself in close sympathy
with every educational etlort, clearly
saw the importance of. removing this
illeteraay from the South, and if - . his
life had :been spared he would have
earnestly', • recommended to Congresi
what was faintly hinted atrin this res
pect iu his admirable inaugural address.
One of the most encouraging signs' of
the times is the deep interest w ich the
blacks are taking in , the cause o educa
tion, and the determinatiop th y mani
fest in - securing to themselves nd their
children all the benefits that r tilt from
Another hopeful symptom is t e break
ing up of the country , isolatio which
could only be done by the abandon
mentof the plantation system that
prevailed under the old slavery, regime,
and which was absolutely 'necessary . to
its existence. One of the advance sheets
of the fOrthcoming census volumes
throws a new and most encouraging
light on the condition of. the South in
this respect. Prior tit'thd, war the land-,
ed estates in the slave States were the
largest in the world, and the hinded aris
tocracy gave evidenced! their power by
' waging the greatest war, for four long
aid bloody years, that history - has yet
recorded. The old landed monopoly is
now rapidly • disappearing, and accord
ing to the figures of the census report;
the South will have in ten years as
many land-owners as •any other section
of the Union. In Georgia., for example:
where before the7ar there were only
62,000 land-owpers, there are now more
than twice that number, and the same
is true of Alabama, Florida, Virginia
and Arkansas. - The large landed es
tates not only festered a slovenly and
unrenumerative,method of farming, but
necessitated a sparsely settled commu
nity, which is one of the greatest hin
drances to a successful common school
system, such as has made the densely
populated sections of the North the
most intelligent and successful commu
nities in the civilized world.
Today another new sign of social
progress aud material development ap
peared-in-the South.by the opening of
the first Cotton Exposition at Atlanta,
Ga. The event is one thilt speaks more
clearly and fully of Southern advance
ment than columns of written observa
tions, and although the exhibition to be
held there will be primarily for cotton,
it is also the intention
. to makeat the
exponent of ail branches of industry,
including manufacturing mining, agri
cultural and the domestic arts. Most
of all, it will help .to dignify labor and
the laboring man, both of which have
been looked upon too long in the South
with, contempt. —ChkagajournaL .
Cotton in Pennoytiattia.
Me ears. Fallon Brothers, cotton brok
ers,have on exhibition at Henry Grieh's,
Chesnut street, above - Twelfth, speci
mens of cotton plants grown by them
at Itunnemide, Delaware county, Pa.
These they do not regard as fair sam
ples, as they Nava been raised in pots
which are.' too small to admit of a free
expansion of the roots, the tap root gen
erally 'requiring about two feet of earth.
They have planted about half an acre in
the open air- as anexperiment, and with
a view of haiings culture introduced
into this State, if possible. The follow,
ing facts have been obtained from them,
and may not prove uninteresting: The'
cotton season in the South opens in the
early part of April; but owing to the
late spring this
_year Messrs. Fallon
Brothers were linable to get their seed
in the ground before the middle of May.
After the ground was thoroughlylbrok-.
en, and wellenriched with fertilizers
composed of fish bones, wood ashes,
lime and other rich phosphates, shipped :
to them from Charleston, S. C., they,
made furrows about three feet apart,
and sowed the seed, as is done with peas,
the plants being subsequently, I‘chop
,pede' or thinned out, so as to leave
them aboutthree' feet apart. The aver
age height- of the plant is about from
four•to five feet, but owing to the ex
cessive drought this summer, it will not
exceed three feet. Accounts from Texas,
where the largest proportion of the cot
ton crops is raised, are tai the Same
effect. The flowering began during the
early part otluly. On its first appear
- once the blossom is of alight, yellowish
color, which after three days turns to a
dark purple and then drops, a small boll
being visible. The time required for
the maturity of the bolls was about two
months, when they would gradually
dry, crack and open. There are usually
three, crops, known as the top. middle
and the bottom, but owing to the early
cold snaps and autsequent dronth,
which retarded the growth Of the plant,
and in view of the approaching frog*
the growers do not expect a j top crop.
The yield, however, is a satisfactory
one, all things taken into Consideration,
the bolls being large, and well develop
ed, and the color and staple 'good. No,
worms, rust or shedding, which are
usually so destructive to cotton fields;
have made their appearance. These
gentlemen feel much encouraged With
thi result of their experiment, which
hill been-a matterof wadi:Otiosity and
interest to their friends and customers.
