Judge Parkfr looked closely at Skiles before replying or showing any feeling at the statement. The man wfts not a favorite" M the bar. He bora & ftpfatation (or pettiness, Ms cases .usually being trivial, most of them plainly tramped up by himself upon trifling disputes between parties, and he was given to volunteering services and bids for favor. "His name, Mr. Skiles?" "John Dorker," replied Skiles, effusively, You sentenced him ten yeats ago last March for burgltlry, which was proved beyond the slightest shadow of doubt. There wasn't a scintilla of evidence iu his favor. Why) the jury were out only about ten minutes. 'I was present during the ffial, and can truthfully say t it Wtts the plainest case of guilt In my legal experi' enc£. "You sent him tip for ten year*."

Looking after him Judge Parker mused: "1 do wonder why some people love so much more, to find evil than good in a person. A. noble character is 'to them as a ^yllitewashed fence against which they de- lifjbt to throw mud. I hcle to tell John of this but 1 suppose it must be dona." John promptly obeyed the suojnions, entering respectfully and -enquiringly. /A shade of distrust upon the judge's - face made him uneasy, but he calnily and with manly dignity awaited the couiinnncation.

Country. ; " BiindAy Qlobo. The New Kngland farming problem is one to which attaches-a melancholy in lerest. The unpleasant truth is now generally acknowledged that the. agricultural industry in this section is npt what ii used to be, and tho num who by tillugo of the ••. soil . can make his ucrfes bring him out even with tho world at tbe end of each year, is regardad us thu fortunate exception to a most, discouraging rule. ' ., ' , , . To explain and account for thii state of things, a number: of reason* have been given. The tariff in one. Unequal com- potitipn with tho great and fertile west is another. There is fores in these. Undoubtedly the tariff has borne heavily upon tho farmer and an even worse one is threatened. ' ,. Without question the magnitude pf agriculture operations in the-west, and the cheapness wilh which its products can be delivered in eastern markets have made his struggle harder. There is, however, spinething else. It may be the result pf cases already mentioned, but without inquiring toe closely into its origin it ia worth loeking at directly in the face. Thercsjias b?en ft disturbance ef the pld equijtoriuin between the country and the city. From tho country the city must derive all that make?urbin life possible—SSa fpod, its clpthes, its hprse?, the materials for its elegant buildings, and finally and not least, to a considerable extent, its men. The country towns are the'sources of sup ply from which healthful blood is being constantly diverted into tha great professional, busines*. educational and philan- thropio'iirtoriei abeady established in tbn cities. The youth iu the country, catching glimpses and echoes of the metropolis, tires of tho prosain' r epOfie of his hpuie environment, and ends by preferring to drive a herdicpr a horse car rather (%n a plpw or a hay wagpn " Consequentlj ">rm abpr, both indoors and out, has becoiiiO scarce, poorer in quality and higher in price, while farm products bring less than iprmerly, and taxes'tend to loftier altitudes. Thus we are led to expect what the official figures pf the census confirm, that while the 'cities of Now England show latisfactpry growth in wealth and popula- ion, many pf the cpunlry towns exhibit a sad falling pff in theso respects. Tho cities may think they have,,rpascn to. feel complacent about this, but if so they are 'n error. If the benefits seem to b,> all on Jieir side IIPW, arc'tclionmurt inevitably jpme frpm which they will suffer. There 8 at present a fulsa adjustment of general ipcial nnd ccoiipiuic conditions. There is pp much venous and npt enpugh arterial ilppd flowing through the general system, ind the result will be ultimate stagnation. iVhat is the remedy 'I It may bo that more than pne will be required to effect a radical cure. But one hing is evident. Since the cities havo •xtracled sp much from the cpuntry a relaxation has beupine necessary. Some pf he superabundance of surplus capital mist go back to renew and redeem the vprusoul. I n every city there are millions pfdpl- ars, unused in business that find their my into tho most uncertain and frequent- y abused spoculatipns, simply because iromising legitimate opportunities pf in- estment are npt open. Why caniiptsomo f this surplus bo diverted to the wasting and? It can bo purchased at fabulpusly PW liguersyaiid thus the great bulk ef ex- enduuits cnn be put into improvements, 'here is nothing iiffprds a more pleasur- ble, or, in the end more profitable return or.inonoy judiciously spant than aifricul- uro.
