The first masonic funeral that occurcd in California took place in the year 1819 and was performed over the body of a brother found drowned in the Bay of San Francisco. An account of the ceremo- nies states that on the body of the deceas- ed was found a hilver mark of a mason upon which were engraved the initials of his name. A little further investigation revealed to the beholder the most singular exhibition of masonic emblems that Avas ever drawn by the engenuity of man up- on the human skin. There is nothing in the history or traditions of Freemasonry equal to it. Beautifully dotted on his letl arm in red or blue ink Avhieh time could not efface appeared all the emblems of the Entered Apprenti...

(SHI WKXdlUVO!Zl&2aXZJ&VllteKJJMKXLVJXKM The Advantages of Railroads. It is an axiom we believe in political economy that the value of articles of in- dustry is regulated by the facilities with which such articles can be placed upon the market. And so of articles of commerce; their production being stimulated and in- creased in exact ratio to the increased means of cheap and rapid transportation. We have taken some care to ascertain by the comparison of statistical figures the in- creased trade in the exportation and im- portation of different countries by means of railroad facilities and for the consider- ation of our readers we present them. In 1840 England had 1200 miles of rail- road in operation and her trade was $581- 000000. In 1867 she had 13289 miles of railroad and her trade was $2500000000. In France there were 564 miles of railroad in operation in 1840 and her trade was $403000000. In 1867 she had 8130 miles of railroad and her trade had in- creased to 1440000000...

J I For the "Plow Boy." The Farmer. "What mortal man is so buoyant and bale As the peer ol' the rustic seal "Whose boinc is out in the quiet vale Away from the noisy street ? In the rich blade mould of the prairie soil His riches are held in store And his life is a day of delightsome toil In counting his treasures o'er. The mariner sails o'er the ocean wide With a blithesome heart and free And bullets the waves of the yielding tide As he sails o'er the deep blue sea. But give me a home on the prairie lawn With islands of oaken trees Where the note of the bird at early dawn 1 heard on the morning breeze. Where the yeoman wakes at the blaze of tlay To gather to reap and sow And to drive his team with a merry lay As he holds to his turning plow. All irksome cares to the winds are thrown And his heart beats light and free For the farmer's path with ilowcrs are strewn And none is so happy as be. jVEoxtovoms. Stfttfoi C The Haunted Koom.

V 3JT. C. BAYMOND VOL. I Labor-Saving' Apparatus. Ever since the great Franklin chain- ed the lighting of heaven and Fulton silently watched the tea kettle the inventive genius of America has been steadily and energetically at work devising various plans for the tri- umph of mind over matter in every department of life. In very many respects that triumph has been com- plete. The Fountain Clothes Washer which is advertised by Messrs. Saun- ders Washington & Co. of this city affords a striking evidence of the fact. The principle involved in the operation of this simple invention is the same as that employed by a sailpr in washing his clothes. The way he does it is to tie the garment what- ever it may be to the end of a rope and toss it overboard while the vessel is in motion. It drags through the water and the rapidity of the fric- tion cleanses it. The time required to do this is dependent entirely on the velocity with which the vessel moves. The faster the quicker is the result ...

It. needs no argument to convince the man of ordinary observation that such a man is an unsuccessful farmer. .Every- thing about his grounds indicate it. llis stock horses mules cattle hogs sheep and even his chickens tell the woful story. And though such a man may be industri- ous may work hard and struggle against what he may regard as a hard fate if he will take a careful and an intelligent and considerate view of his surroundings he may find the secret of his hard fortune in a want of the economical administration of his farm arrangements. As a partial aid to all such a few rules in farming econ- omy may perhaps command attention. The Plow Boy devoted as it is to the progressive development of all the materi- al interests of Texas offers a medium long needed by this farmers of the country for an interchange of experience in the various interests of production.

This town is tlic county seat of Hays county situated at the foot of the hilly region and at the head of San Marcos river a bold stream of pure limpid water of great volume which gushes forth in size and ap- pearance a small river and rushes with great speed some forty miles to its confluence with the Guadalupe. There is no reason except a want of moneyed capital why there should not be extensive machinery driven by its line water power at short distances- all along its course. The country adjacent to the stream is ca- pable of sustaining a dense popula- tion: Some of the finest cotton lands in the south border it and the back country affords excellent facilities for stock raising. The capacity is here if developed to furnish the raw material for manufactories for an indefinite number of years. The people of Hays county arc properly appreciative of the necessity of con- centrated ef...

In this arti- ticle Ave confine our remarks to the San Marcos valley alone. Other places will from time to time be mentioned. Facts arc stubborn arguments an'd those herein aftergiven are ascertain- ed by actual survey made by a scien- tific competent engineer. But before giving the facts let us tell what led to their development. In 18G6 a company was chartered the main ob- ject of which was to use the finely flowing volume of the San Marcos river for purposes of irrigation. -As preliminary to the work a survey was made when it was definitely de- termined that at a total cost of fifty thousand dollars in a length of elev- en miles eleven thousand...

A Kim A. N m Wi The Plow Boy. AUSTIN FEBRUAKY 1869. N. C. RAYMOND Editor and Proprietor. Destructivcncss. There is no organ of the human "brain more necessary to our existence and certainly none which is more fre- quently perverted from its normal function than the propensity of de- structivencss. Tt seems to be about the first if not the very first mani- festation of mind. The darling in- fant on its mothers bosom in whose cherub smiles the anxious parent ex- periences the thrill of delight gives its first its fullest and freest exhibi- tions of mind in the exercise of the disposition to destroy. It is necessa- ry to our being because without it when arriving at mature years we could not provide for ourselves either by an adaptability to the favorable surrounding circumstances of life or by the contacts with opposing obsta- cles. It is therefore of the abnormal exercise of this propensity almost the ruling disposition of the human family at this day even where civili- zation has at...

L-: & Editorial Correspondence. Brenham Texas. February 21stt 1869. Almost all the readers of the Plow Boy know that this place is the terminus of the Washington county railroad which connects with the cen- tral railroad at Hempstead twenty miles below here on the route to Houston. Brenham is a pretty site for a town and should it continue the terminus of railroad communication will bo perhaps a city of no mean pretentions in a business point of view. In fact now it presents all the while indications of an activity in business which is unmistakable as to the amount transacted here. But at this season of the year or at any oth- er when much rain falls it is veiy un- approachable because the roads be- come almost impassable. In many places they become entirely so and it is only by the exercise of a good deal of Christian forbearance as well as human sagacity that the trip from the upper county to this point is made at all. "Washington county of which Brenham is the country town is...

May his days be long and his married life a beautiful example of the "sweetest affections of the heart." New System of Cotton Culture. The present problem of the cotton farmers is to increase production of small areas and. devise that system which is best adapted to white labor. The desire of profit is sufficient stimulus to achieve the first of these objects. The constant agi- tation and disturbance produced by po- litical excitements and uncertainties im- pose the consideration of the last and at present absorbing object. These make up the sum of the practical farmer's in- quiries to reduce the area of cultivation and to increase the amount and profits of production under such a system of skilled labor as will not be disturbed b...

If i'lMNaaiss&xvtizuiuaunxKuKijaerf. Ciiro of Clothing. Mrs. GuiwitSj says some sensible things on this subject as follows : A good housekeeper never allows waste in any department over which she presides but a favorite held for the exhibition of skill and economy is the providing and caring for of the family clothing. The making the mending the cleaning and making over if not actually done by her own hands require her supervision. The purchasing perhaps the most important part of all generally falls to her. This of- ten becomes a matter of great perplexity. Annie and Susie want to go to school and want pretty dresses and fashionable hats. Mamma is anxious that the material should be durable and papa is equally anxious that it should be cheap. A man who has grown up daughters or daughters growing up is likely to think that he has an ex pensive family even where the mother and the daughters suppose that they are practicing the most rigid economy. It can not. be denied that there ...
