'house, farm and "garden.
We Inrttil eommrinli-stlons froth ill rernnns who ire
. ntrolu1 In matters properly belonaiu: to this de
partment. Farm Laborers.
Home fifteen years ngo there came to
Ucrmnntown a couple of English lador
ers with mnall fhtnilies. They had Rpent
their all In getting here, could get ' no
work, families got sick, and one of tbeni
lost a little child which neighbors
nearly as poor aa themselves helped to
bury. Here and there they at length
got a job of work to do, and managed to
bniHh along through the next winter.
We happened to hear a conversation
between the two men ; one contending
that there were too many men about
, large cities, and that the beet plun was
to try to get a liviing from the land ;
the other considering that the best
chance for a living was to stny "near
where the money was." The former at
length left these parts, and the other has
been here all the time. He is a good
laboring man now ; but, so fur U9 we
know, has little if anything more than
his daily labor to depend on. . ,
A few days ago a Centennial visitor
with his wife and daughter dropped in.
We had lost remembrance, but he had
come to tell the good news of his success
in life. He had struck oil' to the country;
worked a year or two at odd jobs : had
endeavored always "to spend a little less
than he earned," had rented a little
piece of land for ayearor bo, "and now,"
said he, triumphantly, "1 own sixty
acres near Auburn, of as good land as
you can find in the state of New York,
and all paid for, too." And so he had
money to spare, and to come with the
rest of the world and his family to the
great Centennial. We could hardly be
lieve that this healthy-looking and
comfortable Bet of people were the poor
ami miserable beings of fifteen years
ago; and when we contracted his cir
cumstances with those of him who had
remained "where the money was," we
could not help wishing that many more
of his class here and elsewhere would
Imitate his example.
The principle which he pithily express
ed as "spending a little less than he
earned," Is worthy of a philosopher. Yet
it covers everything, whether in the
country or town, tlmt leads to success.
But it is here that the country hus one
advantage. The surroundings are more
in favor of saving than spending, while
near a city they are just the reverse.
Crops on the Pacific Ccast.
Kan Franoisco, Cal., January l '.
The drought vontinues unbroken. For
the first time siiite the America (tlc
ment December has passed without u
drop of rain. Yesterday dispatches
from various points, seemed to in
dicate a change of weather, but has again
cleared oft". The crop reports received
from all quarters indicate that in the
extreme t-outh the drought has hud to
some extent disastrous elleet on grain
and feed. In some parts of Sun Joa
quin Valley and the lower portion of the
Sacramento Valley the crops are suffer
ing. Along the coast counties gener
ally the reports are favorable, and no
trouble Is apprehended if rain should
be delayed until next month. In the
northern part anxiety is felt, 1 but
no serious damage has yet resulted. The
iTopw in Oregon are coming forward ex
cellently. On tx whole, the present in
dications are that with rains later in the
winter sufficient grain will be raised for
home consumption, and a small surplus
left. If rain comes within a couple of
weeks, fair crops may be harvested un
der favorable conditions during the rest
of the season, but a large yield can
hardly be expected without rain soon.
Crows as Corn-Huskers.
A Coleralii (Lancaster county) farm
er, belated with his farm Work, left
about three acres of corn In the field
unhutiked. Since the snow the crows
have found it and have undertaken to
husk It on the shares. , They visit H iu
large flocks and have torn the shocks
open In their endeavor? to find the corn,
the ears of which they strip and shell
off in a dextrous manner. Although
the farmer protests against such & slov
enly manner of husking aud the taking
f the toll before the whole vi k ' is
done, the crows insist that their i-uwh is
just and proceed daily with tht work in
their own way. An FjsT Nottingham
