A LOVERS qi AKKEIi. I could not hear all that they must have said! But as I sat beside the little stream I watched them part with just one angry word, She passed me quickly with a down dropped head, Red cheeks, eyes flashing with a. scornful gleam, A hasty step, as by deep passion stirred She did not turn, nor look back where he stood, But vanished quickly in the thick, green wood. I walclied him sigh, then noted how he gazed At her retreating form: he whistled low And softly to himself in deepest thought He whispered, '"Is she vexed?"—then was amazed That 'twas, in truth, she really meant to go. He looked once more, as if indeed he sought To bring her back, but on she went that diiv— Then he went, too—but 'twas the other way. They never met again but oft I see The girl, a woman grown, come by this seat, And gii'Ae into the stream with tear-worn eyes? And then I wonder why such things should be! If she had turned her head or stayed her feet. Life would have altered, loves bright sun...

THE KING OF SNAKES. An Annual Convention Held in For /, rest County by Venomous Reptiles-- Acres of Serpents Seen by a Pioneer. Tionesta Correspondence Oil City Derrick. As this is about the time of year that snakes make their appearance .in large numbers and snake stories are fashion able, I will endeavor to give you the substance of an account lately received from one of our most reliable and trustworthy citizens. Residing in an adjoining township, less than half a day's drive from this pleasant town, lives an honest old German farmer whom we will call Uncle Ben. Having been well acquainted with Uncle Ben for several years, we can vouch for his truth and veracity in all other things, and of course we are well satisfied that his account of this thrilling adventure among the serpents is also true, and not overdrawn. Uncle Ben says that one hot day in June, not many years ago, he started out to hunt his cattle that had strayed, away from home. During the course of his long walk throu...

I didn't know but you might think we were all dead or gone off picking blueberries, not hearing from this place lor so long. The census returns for this town were a surprise even to the best in formed we expected a population of 150 or 200, but instead there were, on June 1st, 325 inhabitants scat tered around among the stumps and brush in this town, 50 farms and five manufacturing establishments. Con sidering that the settlement has mostly been made in the last three years, this is, we think, a very cre ditable showing. Superintendent Town of the X, P. II.

NORTHERN PACIFIC FARMER. JOSEPH E. HALL, Publisher. WADENA. WADEXA CO., MINN. COMMENTS. THE lady enumerators enumerated the best. THE receipts of flour and grain in Chicago for the past six months add up a total of G3,840,400 bushels. HALF a million dollars were left in Cincinnati by the democratic conven tion. MANY people are under the impres sion that England stands at the head of all the Continental nations as regards the number of its periodical publica tions. Such is not-,the case. Germany heads the list with 3,778 England fol lows with 2,509 and France comes next with 2,000. There is then a great falling oflf. America boasts 9,129, being more than the three nations above named put together. MAJOR JOHN STROTIIER and Capt. Man ly Brown qarrelled, at Warrenton, Va., until they were angry enough to desire a duel. A meeting was arranged for the following day.

ROOM |FOR MILLIONS MORE. While empire's bright imperial star Still tireless travels west, Dakota throws her gates ajar And bids the traveler rest. And light the road to prairies broad, A generous nation's store, While swells the song her vales among "We're room for millions more.-' New England hills, no doubt, are dear To those upon them bom, The memories bright of many a year Their rugged rocks a-dorn But though they grieve the young will leave New England's rocky shore, And take the road to prairies broad With room for millions more. Old England's sons are coming too, To sample Western meat, For Britain's* farms are far too few To yield enough to eat. The lion's roar is good but men Can't live on lion's roar, So, let them come we've living room Out here for millions more.

LEADYILLE IN 1880. The W onderful Progresx ofColoi-ado's illasriv "ity. New York Tribune. About a year has elapsed since Mr. White wrote his admirable series of letters from this camp. It has been a very busy year. The population of the city is said to have doubled. Estimates of the present number of inhabitants range from 25,000 to 30,000. The busi ness area of the city has also doubled. A year ago Chesnut street was the prin cipal thoroughfare. It is atill an im portant street, but has been eclipsed by Harrison avenue. A year ago the hill sides bore a wilderness of cabins, each set down where to the owner seemed good. To-day the city is laid out as regularly as Philadelphia. Harrison avenue and Chesnut street cross at right angles. The streets leading from Har rison avenue are, respectively, East or West Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, etc. Streets leading from Chesnut are Pine, Spruce, Hemlock, etc. Some of the streets are conspicuous mainly by their names, but every new cabin does...

BATES IN ADVANCE One copy one year, $1.50 six months 80 Agricultural. WHAT WILL THE HARVEST BE In "Wadena and adjoining counties there has, as yet, not been a single un favorable circumstance to debar the harvesting of one of the most abund ant crops which ever blessed the in habitants of this region. The spring opened late and gradually. The frost came out of the ground fast enough to enable the earth to absorb the mois ture of the melting snow, and when the seed was deposited in the soil it had the benefit of a soil which had been, by nature, perfectly prepared for it. A cool dry season followed which started the wheat from a thor ough root into a stout, heavy stalk. About the time the mosture from the snow had run short, a series of show ers set in and continued with more or less regularity for two weeks,—t...

Tin TWO HK1DF..S. BY Jl'Ll.V PORK. We two will stand in the shadow here, To see the bride as she passes by: lling soft and low, ring loud and clear. Ye chiming bells that swing on high! Look! look! she conies! The air grows sweet With the fragrant breath of the orange blooms, And the flowers she treads beneath her feet Die in a flood of rare perfumes. She comes! she comes! the happy bells With their joyous clamor till "the air. While the great organ dies and swells, •Soaring to trembling heights of prayer! Oh! rare are her robes of silken sheen, And the pearls that gleam on her bosom's snow But rarer the grace of her royal mien, Her hair's line gold, and her cheek's young glow. Dainty and fresh as a folded rose, Fresh as a violet dewcy sweet, Chaste as a lily, she hardly knows That there are rough paths for other feet: For love hath shielded her honor kept Watch beside her by night aiul day, And evil out from lier sight hail crept, Trailing with slow length far away. Now in her perf...

To say that it resem bles the southern exodus would'give but a faint idea of it for the negro did not leave his old southern home in haste, but took what time was necessary to pack his trunks and dispose of what he did not desire to take with him to the land of promise. The people in Adams and Pike Counties, Illinois, though, are fleeing from what they know will be certain death if they remain.
