BILL NYE A FARMER. NORTH CAROLINA WELL DIGGING IS STILL IN ITS INFANCY. WJJHum'a literary Labor* Interfered with by Agricultural AK|t r "VlitlunE—If untlng Dyimmlto Tor MUOH Around—How Ho Ifl Miulo nn Ann of by tlio NolRhliorB. IConyriitut, USB. by VAvnr W. Ny<M BUCK SMOALS, N. C. Recently I have been iliKKing " well on my estnto and tlio sound of the promnturo Mast nnd tlio wail of tbo widow can bo heard all over tlio place on a still day. Tlio word "woll"' comoa from the Anglo- Saxon tvcallan, moaning to gush out. It originally meant to flow, or a naturally flowing Bpring, liko tho German word Irrunnen. I have one living spring on my pluco, and one that has passed on to a better land, I judge. Some savants who remained over night with us last week and sweetened their coffee in a reckless way, I thought, said that there WBS snlphnr In this spring. Possibly that is it. One of tho savants oven went so far as to say that it was living water. Possibly it is in a trance. DRILLING. Last week my well diggers ran out of explosives, and I hud to go out among the neighbors to get dynamite and powder for blasting, Well digging in North Carolina is still in its infancy and noeds a good deal of encouragement and capital. My well diggers furnish nothing except their clothes. They clotho themselves while digging the well. I do the rest. I had to borrow dyaamito and carry it to tho works in my lap. 1 also had to got eighteen feet of hose, as tho well digger said he only had a few loft. Hoso, us well as molasses and license, is used in tho plural number here. We speak of thoso hose, those molasses and those license. ThiB iB tho first well I havo over dag. You get a mind reader or water witch first before digging a well. Ho divines by means of a hazel crotch tho location of tbo vein. Then you accuro a well digger, who does the actual digging at so much por foot and found. One man who dug a well hero years ago on my form at threo dollars per foot ami found got down eighty feet and then the well caved in on him. His widow has since sued tho owner of tho plnco on the ground that her husband did his part of the contract faithfully, but was not found according to agreement. It involves a very fine legal point indeed. In selecting a sito for a house, I find that I have placed it BO high that the well is going to bo unusually massive. In ordor to have the house whore it would easily command a viow of Mr. Vanderhilt's tennis court, thus giving us tho benefit of tlio game without the fatigue of playing 1 it, 1 have placed my well at aufih an elevation (hat water will be my most expensive drink this summer. My vak't, whose duty it is to carry tho water, press my trousers and do tho cliamborwork at the barn, took one look down tho well yesterday and handed in his resignation. The well was opened in March, and tho cornerstono laid with suitablo coremonies and a speech made by Mr. Depuw, but tlio work has seomed to drag somo, owing to the fact that the Tar Heel well digger does not own a set of tools, neither dooB he furnish powder, caps nor hoso. Just as I would scat myself in the library and proceed to work on my great posthumous job, to bo culled "Tlio Great .'Detective Series, or the Todious Task of Inspector Byrnes in Unearthing and Bringing to JiiBtico the Alan who Struck Billy Patterson," my farming superintendent would rush in and, making a low salaam instead of wiping his feet, state that tho well ainkor was out of 'powder. « I would then dismiss tho farming superintendent, telling him to return to his dutios. Icall him my farming superintendent because it has a more prosperous air to it. As a matter of fact, he and his horso Lydia E. Pinkham constitute the farm forco and entire poino- logical staff. Ho is a good stuff, he aud Lydia. Togother thoy are forming eleven acres of Vonotian red soil this year, and putting a molding on the lower edge to keep tho potatoes from falling out of tho ground and injuring Mr. Vanderhilt's cotton crop and pajama plants, which aro growing on the farms just below us. Next year we will clear throe more acres of white oak, leaving the stumps llniahed off artistically with a large carved acorn or some such design, BO that the field will not bo so unsightly, as is too often the case with newly cleared land. One field will also be cleared of tulip and sounvood bees, the stumps, however, to be "champorod off" liko a newel poBt of the Fifteenth century, and on each one of these chasto stumps a piece of rustio china or plain white ware will bo sot with enough soil in it to sustain geraniums and other choice plants, BO that instead of a miserable and unsightly fiold covered witli blackened and repulsive stnmps wo will have an ornament of Homo kind wherever tho eye rests. When I bought the farm it was sui- ronndad by a rough and most unsightly rail fence, I havo taken these rails, and placing them in groups of three and standing them on end to form a Bort of tripod, have hung therefrom an iron pot, giving the farm tho appearance of n gypsy camp, OR it were, for hero and there all over tho plnco mr.y bo seen thoso tripods with a kettle attached ti, each and a beautiful hollyhock or nasturtium growing out of winio at a great rate. One reason, I think, why boys lenvt the farm is that the farm is not made attractive. It is too prosy, Boys love urt. They love to see beautiful colors unil simple, artistic decorations. We mom over tho fact that year after year los. American boyB go into agriculture, whilt. our farms oro gradually falling into the hands of tbo foreigner. I believe that I have solved the great quoBtion. Boys go to tho city, whore they find beautiful things and efforts toward art. My boys shall nover throw it up to me in fnturo years that I failed to make the farm attractive. My only sorrow is that the neighbors in Buncombe county and thoBo who live near mo at Buck Shoals mislead me regarding agriculture. They speak lightlj of my offorts at art and misrepresent things to mo regarding tho business. They do it in a spirit of raillery—a sort of fence raillery, I presume—but I think it is because they do not approve of my style of farming and regard it as a Bort of reproof to them for their lack of taste and artistio souse. Now, for instance,.! regard it as a little bit uunoighborly to take hold of n literary man and fill him up with facts and statistics that cannot be demonstrated. 1 hato to be fooled with in that way. Why Bhould a man whom I have fronted with tho utmost kindness evei Bince 1 came here go to work and tell me that here In North Carolina foui crops of lumbs from the same set ot parents was and has been tho regulai tiling, while on a good year, when the mean average rainfall can see its shadow on groundhog day, the yield runs tip to five and six. This sort of thing not only makeB me feel unhappy and bitter toward my neighbore, but it has fostered >t miserable spirit in my breast and caused my relations with my domestic animals to become strained. At first I laid it to the weather, but finally I began to regard my sheep with distrust. I felt that the) wero neglecting their duties and taking advantage of tho fact that I am not an experienced farmer. So I consulted Mr. Vauderbilt. who has farmed it six weeks longer than I have, and who therefore knows the ins and outs of the business- pretty well. He tells mo that one crop I of lambs per year is all that they get I here under the most favorable circumstances, Plum Levi also tells mo that while timothy and clover often yield two and three crops, ho nover harvests his lambs over once a year. It hurts the country to misrepresent these tilings to strangers and capitalist,, like myself—men who wish to build vcy the country and add to its wealth. Why not be fair and truthful in the start, and thus invite tho good, the true and tht. beautiful to come aud settle among us? Last year my plug tobacco was a complete failure, and an old resident of Sandy Mush allowed that it wasbecanBe I did not plant tho plug with tho tin tug end downward. 1 have since learned that one should not plant tho plug at all. It will not reproduce itself even if the tiu tag end be pluuted downward. Tobacco grows from the seed and is made into plugs afterward. Why would it not bo as well to toll a Btranger thoso things instead of allowing him to make a largo Huted ass ot himself with u Watteau back? My well is down now to porphyry rock and Bchist with a homalite stain in it. Neighbors tell me that even if I do no striko water it will make a good c placo to keep vegetables in. 1 learned yesterday that the formei owners of the placo have each dug a dry well 200 feet deep on this farm and then sold it out at a sacrifice. Can it be that I am elected to contribute also a 200 foot root cellar? Oh, heavens! Oh, heavens' It cannot, must not be. Att gofu—vrtf man's , Buffering and woman's weakness.

'this sort of thing makes my literary work disconnected, and I have ill- ways wanted my posthumous work tolm my very beat. "God bless you," said a lady friend of initio tho other day, "especially for your posthumous work." I am having the usual trouble pecnliui to domestic animnls in the spring, i bought n donkey last year for tho children. This year wo had him clipped, at he was getting most too woolly and the hens got to burrowing into bis foliage and hiding their nests, so we got u clip- piBt to clip him. Ho is about 80 years ot age and nover had his hnir cut before. We found a good inRny things which the neighbors had missed. They wero in t he stubble after the clipping had been done. But he caught cold, for we clipped him too early. One Bhould not prune u donkey in March. It is risky. He is likely to got pneumonia. Ever sine that I've had to cover up this donkey t>l nights, and two or three times in Hit' night I must go mid seo if ho has kicked tho covers off. He is often feverish at night, and MB feet nro hot and dry. Once they were, anyhow. That was the only time I felt of them. I am going into tho guinea hens tHs- summer. I bought eighteen before .1 paused to ask myself what the guinea hen is good for. Will any reader of this paper who knows what the guinea lieu if good for please write mo at Fletchers. Jf. C, stilting what if anything she is good for except to eat if hard pressed oi to make a loud and long continued noise at 4 o'clock a. m.? Building goes on quietly on my new slo.-c the French Brook river. I will write nioro about it as we progress. 1 am sorry now that I allowed myself, to be drawn into this foolish rivalry with Mr. Vanderbilt in the matter of building. What I should havo done is per fectly plain to mo now. Instead of straining every uervo to equal or excel his residence, I should have waited till ho completed his house and then profited by his experience and avoided his errors.
