In connection with the Converse family Is that of the Edgars. Mrs. Edgar at the time of her marriage to Mr. Converse bad two sons by her first hUBband. Abram D. and Andrew; they came from Huntington and lived with the Convorto family in 1830. Abram D. Edgar, on airiving to years of manhood, entered the ministry of the Methodist Episcopal church.

This family first settled on lands in Shrewsbury township, but later purchased a large farm on Muncy creek, in Davidson township, where he resided from 1838 to the time of his death in 1872. He was a man of remarkable vigor both of body and mind. By industry and care he obtained large returns from his farm, and thereby was able t show what could ba gained by farming in the Muncy Valley. His ser - . vice ware almost constantly sought as one . of the supervisors of roads in the township, and expenditures of public funds made by him always secured the best results. The good judgment and fidelity shown in the discharge of the business of the township brought him prominently before the voters of the eounty on its organization and secured for him the office of County Treasurer at the first election of county officers. During the years of his life he was almost . constantly in attendance at our courts in the interest of his township. Robert Taylor married Bennett. They had seven children : I. George. 1L David. lit. Clark. Iv. Elizabeth. v. Angeline, m. Edkln Conrsew; lives In Michigan. vi. Rosetta, m. first John Hiddleson and after his death m. Fletcher Speary. viL Jeremiah, whose death occurred when a boy. Mr. Taylor, like his brother James, first settled on the nolaods in Shrewsbury township, but in 1838 moved to the valley lands in Davidson township. He cleared a large farm and was prominent in forwarding the improvements of tho township. He held for many years the office of Justice of the Peace, and was twice elected County Crmmissioner. He took an active part in the political interests of the county, and was among the first to offer favorahl inducements for establishing tanneries in the county, and upon bis lands was erected the Muncy Valley tannery. This tannery was commenced about 1868 by L. R Bump. He enme from Wayne county. He was a practical farmer, and for a few years prior to locating at Money Valley had the mpervi - aion of the Lporte tannery under A. Lathrop & Co. The building first t cu - 1 waa less txteneive than thore now in ue Mr Bump continued ia the business, being aided by his father, who was a silent partner for about five years, when the property was destroyed by fire, the loss estimated at about $ 20,000. The property was rebuilt by Mr. Bump, but he was unable to go on with the business for any length of time and removed his family to Chicago. After a few changes in ownership the property came in possession of D. T. Stevens A Son. These gentlemen possessed abundant means and had much experience in conducting the tanning business. They gradually enlarged the capacity of the establishment and purchased additional lands and built comfortable dwelling houses for a large number of workmen. A few years after they had engaged in the enterprise the tannery was again destroyed by fire at a loss of nearly $100,000. Fortunately, the Messrs. Stevens were repaid by insurance and the works rebuilt in a short tima. The business continued under their ownership for about twenty years, when it was embraced with the other tanneries in the county by the Union Tanning Company. The annual capacity is rated at 225,000 sides of sole leather and gives employment to 120 men. Hon. Joseph Gansel, who came to reside in Davidson in 1881, had for thirty years been one of the most prominent citizens of the county. He was born in Mifflin township, Columbia county, in 1818. His ancestors came from Germany, but his father, Gideon Gansel, was born in the United States. His mother, whose maiden name was Catherine Fisher, resided all of her life in Columbia county. After arriving at the years of manhood Joseph went to live at Foundry villa, near Berwick, and there became intimately associated with 8.F.Headley. Mr.Headley at this tima having established a store at Headleyville, in Sullivan county, and was otherwise interested in Onshore property, induced Mr. Gansel to go to Cherry township and take charge of his store. He had previously married a daughter of John Auman. In September, 1851, he removed his family to Sullivan county. After conducting the mercantile business for a short time for Mr. Headley he was induced, in connection with Col. James Degen,to purchase the Headley store. The partnership continued for seventeen months, when he old his interest to his partner and engaged in the employ of Wells & Wilcox, who were then largely engaged in the mercantile business in Dushore. Subsequently a change was made in the firm to that of Wells & Ackley, Mr. Gansel continuing with them about six years. In this connection he had become one of the most popular men residing at Dushose, and his health having failed from too close confinement in the store, he was persuaded by his friends to accept the nomination of the Free Soil Party for the office of Sheriff, and although that party was largely in the minority Mr. Gansel's popularity was so great that he was elected to the office. Iu 1860 he removed his family to Laporte. Ia 1871 he received the nomination of the Republican party for the office of Associate Judge and although the minority party he was elected to the office. He held the position for the term of five years. Remained upon his farm in Laporte township until 1881, on being employed by Stevens & Sou to take charge of the bark furnishing business connected with their extensive tannery, he removed to Muncy Valley, continuing in this very laborious employment for three or four years ; he then retired from the business. After the Williamsport and North Branch railroad was built through Davidson township. Mr. Gansel engaged in various capacities in forwarding the interests of the road. In all the business relations of life he proved himself an honored and respected citizen. In his early years united with the Methodist Episcopal church and the interests of that church have always been dear to him and his services have been constantly in demand as an office bearer.

Saggestions Made In an Address Before the Main Board of Agriculture. There are pastures that have never produced as profitable crops as the trees on them. To get anything out of these pastnrea today yon have to Bend cattle scurrying over a large area to get what they should get on six or eight acres. The result is the cow works herself to death and works the butter out of her cream and tho cream out of Lor milk. A cow should never take any more exercise than is absolutely necessary for her health, because exercise costs money, costs food, costs milk and costs butter. A cow that has to scurry over a large area to get food will not begin to give as much milk as one which can get it on a small area and lie down and chew her cud and rest. Now, the question is what to do with these pastures. Yon cannot fertilize them with manure, because that disgusts the cow. Consequently what is known as grass dressing, prepared by fertilizer companies, is a good thing. In these pastures you have failed to renew the value taken from them by grazing. Yon have kept them from seeding. They need reseeding. They need also to be broken nnder, plowed and harrowed. Tho ordinary slanting toothed harrow is a good thing to use. In as early spring as you can possibly get on to it go over this pasture with a slanting toothed harrow and give it a good mixture, as much as possible a mixture of Juno grass and white clover. It Is an excellent combination. If you choose, a little red clover. Then follow with yonr dressing, and, if you can, give it a dressing cf land plaster, which is a good thing. In future handling of the pasture that is run down divide it Cattle tread down at least threo or four times as much as they crop. Say, take a pasture of 40 aores and divide it into three parts. Put the cows into this third this week, the next third the next week and the last third the next week and right back again, and yon will find a large improvement in the croppage and also in the character of the butter and cream, an improvement in its flavor. A Convenient Farm Gate. The posts for this gate may bo of common ones sawed flat at tho top. The one at tho right has a pointed spike. The top piece is made of 2 by 4 material. For the gate 1 by 4 material is used. A THIS GATE HAKGS PLUMB. blacksmith can cast a piece of iron to act as a hinge, which is fastened to the gate. The top is raised and set into a slit in the top of the post to tho left. It is claimed that this gate not only hangs plumb, but will remain so permanently without being displaced or sagged to one eide by rains, winds or bad weather. Best Soils For the Potato. The conclusion arrived at by The American Agriculturist, and based on reported rosults from many and varying 6eotions of the conntry, is that the best soils for tho profitable growing of the potato aro light gravelly or sandy loam, or those varying between a sandy and a clay loam, enriched by tho sedimont and remains of former alluvial deposits or decayed vegetablo matter, new lauds, tboso lately clearod and burned over, and limestono soils. Naturally unfavorable land may bo rendered satisfactory by proper preparation. A strong clay soil thoroughly drained, well pulverized and fertilized with mineral manures or worn soils brought up by a generous ap plication of stablo manure, wood ashes or special fertilizers may bo regarded as in suitablo condition to produce a good yiold of potatoes. In no clayey soil can the potato be grown to perfection as regards quality. Grown on dry, new land.Hhe potato cooks fine and mealy, possessing a rich and agreeablo flavor not to bo attained in potatoes grown on older soils. A thin but fertile soil, resting upon a retentive clay or slaty subsoil, is not do - eirable for potatoes, ovon though artificially drained. Good drainage is indispensable to successful culture. A naturally drained, looso, mellow, clover sod or flno stubble after stiff sod is the best possible type of a potato growing soil. The Lettuces. Improved Boston Market for botboda and early planting out of doors, Trian on Cos for spring and early summer, and Deacon, Thorburn'a Market Gar - donors' and Salamander for summer. It is easy enough to got good lettuces up till Juno, but between tho middle of July and the end of August tho lettuce quostion is a tronblesome one, accord ing to tho editor of Gardoniug, who says: The plants hardly got to hearting size when they "bolt," and tho bost of them nt that timo is poor and tough in quality. In tho cooler northern states and high elevations, this isn't so, hut hero on Long Island good lettuces in ho hot summer mouths aro boyond ui The Average Kew England Farm. Profossor Sanborn of New Hampshire, who is quite familiar with wostorn farming, is quoted by Maino Farmer as saying: "For a modorato sum entirely within tho bounds of economy tho avor - ago Now England farm may bo fitted for tho uso of ovory essential machino used on tho prairies of tho wost, so that if a western farmer can liandlo 40 acres of corn tho eastern farmer can do it Tho Now England farmer will not bo man enough to balance his western brothor until muscular tonsion is roliov - od by tho substitution of abundant ma chinery on tbo farm."
