'1IWEEKLY EDITION. WINNSBORQ, S. C., SEPTEMBER 23, 1879. YOL 11.-NO. 101. NIGHT ON THE FARM. 'Tie dewfall on the lonely farm, The hlooks are gathered in the fold, The dusky air is soft as balm, The daisies hide their hearts of gold. Slow, drowsy, swinging bolls are hoard In pastures dewy, dark and dim, And in the door-yard trees a bird Thrills sleepily his evening hymn. The dlark blue deeps are full of stars One lone lamp on the hillside glooms, A mile away, is rod as Mars ; The night is sweet with faint perfumes. .kt bedtime in the quiet house, Up through the w[de. old rooms I go, Without a lamp; and not a mouse Is stirring. Loudly, to and fro The old clock tioks, and easterly The ancient windows open high ; Here the sun's kiss will waken me, With bird songs wolling up the sky. Nellie's Leap - Year Proposal "Really, Catharme, I do not wonder at Mary's surprise at your behavior. You forget that you are Frank's widow. You are too forward." I hesitated a moment, really anxious to keep...

Got the Colic faid. Two deaf mutes vio boarded an high avenue car at Thirty-fifth street, N. Y., good-looking young man and a pretty you1 woman, made tho' fingers fly lye knittii needles as they "talked" to each other, as their eyes snapped and twinkled as so happy or brilliant thought was thrown from their finger ends. A tall, lean mi with a western beard and ears was deep interested in the young couple, but his i terest, judging from the expression of I face, was of a gloomy nature. At last sighed, or, to speak more accurately, I suspiration took the form of a half-supprei ed grunt, and turning to the reporter ] said : "Stranger, it's a sad sight to see t young bein's like those doomed to wand alone, as you might say, through this wort for of course if they went ind in hand lit other couples go, they couldn't talk ; at whateve.t manual labor they may be do] they've either got to endure solitary co linement, as it were, or else drop their wo and loaf."

AGRICULTURE. '1'Tu: 'olsoNIN oF WIEEs AND IN sEors.-Uardening is such an innocent occupation, so promotive of gentle thoughts and ways ats to make the idea of using poison even to destroy vermin, produce a shudder of reluctance, at first thought of it. But the survival of the strongest and the fittest is the old est earthly law. The most ancient marine fossils-the old Silurian fishes disentonbed by Hugh Miller from de posits of incalculable antiquity-show that even before there was dry land or bird or beast, the stronger fishes were ialified and purposelyfitted, privateer like, to prey upon their swarming in feriors. "Self'-nreservation is the first law of Nature. ' This adage may have a selfish sound, and is no doubt perver ted in application for selfish ends, but it justifies our modern methods of quick extermination to the enemies of the crops which the earth gives us only at the cost of resolute and persevering struggle, and skill.

A Plenl Experience. "What this country really wants," said Mr. Phipps to me, thou htfully, as he % 'locked his fingers over his knee, ''is a law making it a penitentiary offense to go to a , icuic.

In the first place, you want to get the thermometer up to 109 In the shade, and to keep it there steadily, with not enough wind blowing to make a leaf tremble. Then you get in the cars, and go out to some place ia few miles nearer to the equator than where you live; and when you alight from the train you discover that the picnic grounds is right on top of an adjacent hill.

19I&gata's bopthse. Within the era of civlization in America hio one was able to successfully pierce through the fierce and terrible under cur rent at Niagara to the bottom until re cently the government itself thought it ne cessary in behalf of science to undertake the task. All the great scheies Imagined to be strictly scien. 1i1c were p it in operation by bunglers to obtain the depth of water beneath the falls. Bars of railroad iion, pails of stones and all uireasonable bulky and awkward instruments were attached to long lines and cast off from the railway bridge and elsewhere, but positively refused to sink. The very bulk of the instrumen's was sulliclent, no matter what their weight, to give the powerful under-current a way to buoy then up upon the surface or near it. The United States Corps of Engineers, however, with a small lead of only twelve pounds weight attached to a slender rope, or sounding cord, easily obtained the depths from the falls to the lower bridge.
