And now let to say to my brother farm 1 ers each Ami every one try a Small piece of carrots another year but be sure and not try a larger piece than can be properly cared for Lor it you do 1 am confident you will cry out in the fall an unprofitable crop. Thieo things Are required at our hand.

Good peruvian guano is 0110 of the Best known manures for wheal always increase ing the yield. Wheal however generally does net command Price enough to make the application profitable. The comparative i ice of potatoes u usually much High or than wheat and hence it is probable if Pauo will Benefit tin potatoes its use would be Piol Itable. To test this Point ii. C. Ives fsq., of tins City made the following Experiment. To planted four acres of potatoes tin soil and treatment being Trio name except that on Taro acres goo lbs. Of peruvian guano were sown broadcast pie virus 10 drawing out Tho furious for Plant ing. As soon As the plants were visible the Guan oed once exhibited a Richer and Saikei Hue than the others and continued to grow better throughout the summer. The i Ottoe were dug in the let week in october and accurately measured on the Zungu anode two acres there were 238 bushels and on the two Aries Guan oed 410 bushels making a dire Renee of Futi bushels i per Aero. The Cuau oed potatoes Are much the largest with scarcely a Small one amongst them. Tho guano costs in new Voik cents per la freight breaking the lumps sifting and sowing it would make it Cost on Tho Laud 3 cents per Pound or s9 j or acre. For this eighty six bushels of potatoes were obtained. On another Par of the farm or. Ives made another Experiment to a cer Laiu which was the Best Mode of applying the guano. The of atoms were planted in Hills one Pait had the guano sown broadcast As in the first Case on the other the guano immediately Over the potatoes separating them with a Little soil As immediate Contact is injurious to the sell. The potatoes with t Liano in the Hill Titre muck Heller than where it teas . Four rows left Zungu anode were not More than Hall As Good As where guano was sue yorker. The Curculio. Or. Greeley in Liis address before the slate agricultural society of Indiana Speaks al or. I Duci Hill s method of pre venting the ravages of Curculio by taking advantage of the instinct of that insect. He says that the doctor sets his Plum Trees leaning Over the water and that the cur Culio s instinct leads him to keep Mich Trees As air sine u cd us his destruction now this method of setting out Trees would undoubtedly Stop the ravages of the cur Culio if All Plain Trees should he set in this manner. Not from any instinct but because the insect could not propagate is species. The Curculio deposits its inthe Plum a Maggot is produced which Falls with the fruit to the ground where it be 1 comes an instinct and ascend the tree by creeping and living to commence the ravages practice by its predecessor s. Now if Trees stand leaning Over the water every a got that Falls with or without n Plum perishes in the water and of course no Curculio is produced. Thus Curculio upon such Trees Are prevented from pro painting and the fruit of the coming season is Safe from its ravages unless they come from adjacent Trees where they were Able to pro Ogato and continue their species. Hut instinct has no Mote to do with the method than it with the safety of a Cornfield from the ravages of the crows that should happen to die in its neighbor Hood and their Young ones become exterminated. The Stock becomes Etino and its ravages Stop unless a fresh Supply of emigrants issues to take their place. Or Aiuto Farmer and i visitor. All Plum growers must to anxious to learn How this destructive insect May be prevented from continuing its ravages. We have seen various remedies recommended and have tried Soine of Thein but to Little Bee it. The Only method we have adopted with any Succes i. To shake the tree violently every morning and the in sect a Ioir. It i Urell to spread a Sheet under the tree that you Muy destroy the de predator. By watching the insect May olten be caught while it Woik fruit. Last season we put Cotton around sever al Trees and bags of Salt in the Fork of the limbs but it did no Good the it nit was mostly destroyed. One tree from which we have never succeeded in gathering much Ripe fruit to treated As above Shook it violently every morning Lor several weeks alter it blossomed and the result was it was so Well tilled with Large de Licious it nit the Green Gage that we were obliged to support the limbs. Ill Augu. We noticed something Homo al on one of the limbs which on Examina Tion proved to to a collection of about thirty Curculio in one compact body. What their intentions were we did n t give them time to explain but noon committed them to the , and frequently the seeds of Good al ready sown in Trio heart Are by harshness and severity stifled in the germ Ami the Noble feelings which had begun to expand Are blasted by the heat of an ungovernable temper. Years Nio when in Ifie freshness a nil buoyancy of ii Hood i was about to be come the Bride of him who had Ever striven to Tonako me Happy i received a letter from Iny Mother eldest mister earnestly urging me to spend a Lew Days with her As who wished particularly to ceo me. Accordingly i went and cordially received by aunt Clara and the family of her Sou with whom she resided. One Day during my , aunt Clara Tohl me site Dudlie Ainoi my intended marriage and. Few line a deep in Tepost in my welfare she Hail determined to give Tun the history of her own Muried life believing that it might convey n very useful lesson. Whether she thought she discovered the same traits in my Char Acter that caused the Shipwreck of her Hap piness i cannot say but let pays. Mir i id on account of Tho sad memories and unhappy feelings it would necessarily awaken she had reduced the narrative to writing which 1 might peruse at pleas ure. At an Caily Day i availed myself of her kindness her manuscript is Here copied. Being the Emest f six children my parents had always been accustomed to rely on Ino fur ii Ucli assistance which i Boon Trio Only child they would scarcely have considered me Able to Lender. My Mother s Liisu was almost wholly occupied with household a Flats so that at sixteen years of Aye the care of two Little Sisters and three brother devolved on Ino. Nature had endow etl Ino with an indo Mitchle will and a passionate love of Power which re United a stronger crib than the occasional reproof which my ebullition of temper called Forth. Among my by others and Sis ters my word was Law and when i issued a command and that was the form in which my i sucs were exercised exacted the strictest obedience. I do not think the children could have loved me Lory much fur my passionate instructions must have engendered that fear which casts out love. At length a change came Over me a Pas Sion took Possession of my Henrt which Fot a Ticino overpowered All Bajcer passions need l say Itiat was love my whole heart was devoted to an object Wor thy of a better disciplined one than i could bring him. As if to prove the assertion True that every person loves his opposite the object of my attachment was mild with a disposition full of kindness Aud Charity always choosing to sullen wrong rather than contend with an antagonist. Intending to relieve my patents from to Viding Soto of Tho necessary not Illus Lor housekeeping i engaged to Lake charge of a disc dict school which was managed by a Board of trustees who were authorized to employ and pay the teacher being indie or less controlled by them. Their occasional interference was to a temperament like mine exceedingly irritating. One Day i returned from school in a very angry mood asserting that i would neither submit to the dictates of the trustees or any one else when my eldest sister said with an Aich smile " what will Yon do when you Aie mar ried 1 Vou will then have to love Honor and obey " my temper was not 1 1 to least solicited by Litis question amt i replied very emphatically thai when i married it would be my husband s duty to make me Happy and if lie did nut ecu Lor to to my wishes 1 would Endeavor to make him foolish wayward irl thai i was id resolve in my own in ind l that i would abide so absurd a determine-1 lion. How Litulu ii i i Roll of How Mieli in Luence Pride mid obstinacy would exert in j dousing me to adhere to this expression of perverted will. Joseph and i were at length married. It teemed to me that i had never been so Happy Cluie weeks passed As Days. Stir lond cd by an atmosphere of love and Kmil Ness my faults were not called Cut and Jo-1 Senh. In his mistaken Fondue thought me All that his warm heart and Noble nature could desire. Soon alter the marriage we commenced housekeeping in a neat pretty House just suited to our wants i was enabled nearly to Amish it with the avails of my year s teach ing and the kind assistance of my Mother Anil Sisters. Neatness and order were very largely developed in my habits and for some time nothing whatever occurred to mar the happiness of our daily life. One of cuing i had to wait longer than usual fur Joseph to come to Tea and sutured a Lony suppressed feeling of impatience to betray itself in the peevish tones in which 1 exclaimed As soon As he entered the Dinning room 11 the ten is All cold Why did you not come before v 441 could not my dear j As there was no one to stay in the store was the mild reply which should have nut the subject to rest As i knew that jul sends business must necessarily occupy hid whole time he being head clerk in the establish ment with which he was connected sex peeling in the course of two or three years to be taken into partnership the before it was necessary Lor Hin to be Active and at. Tensive. All this i knew but like two Many wives took Little interest in business affairs and would not consider that he Hail any claims Paramount to my convenience. Small matters like these should have been borne patiently but in the absence of any greater trouble i suffered a thousand trifling i things to annoy nil irritate to to that de Roc that i threatened to turn Over n new Leaf which was but another Way of saying unlit i can have things my own Way 1 shall give my husband a lesson. To Boro my Oft reiterated complaint about what of pea s to me now to Havo j Cen Light As air without resentment offering Good reasons excuses i called them Tor not complying with my wishes. One Day alter i had reproached him with thinking More of Liis business than of his Wile to lose to go out and a to did so he turned to to with a look that should Havo sent repentance to my heart and fixing on me those liquid Grey eyes expressive More of sorrow than of Auger Clara said to j u if you find it of troublesome waiting for i Mel not wait any Inorg but take your meals Ami Clear away the things without re Gard to when he had gone the tem per that should Havo been cast behind me prompted to to take him at his word. Accordingly when the time came i prep Roj the evening meal and after waiting a few moments i sat Down Ato alone then cleared away the table and took up my sewing. In a few moments Joseph came in Ami with out raising my eyes from my work i told him in As unconcerned manner As possible that he need not come for his Tea 1 had j cleared it away. Without saying a word he turned and left the House. I know my Friend that when you read j this you will bitterly reproach to for in a kindness to one who loved me letter than life one too for whom at times 1 would i Hare Laid Down my life and aught else save i my will. His loss at one time would Havo i broken my hear but naturally impulsive i that intense love that for a time controlled infirmities of temper i had Suir Rcd them to gain the Ascendancy thus dashing from our lips the cup of happiness. I allowed i myself to forget that Tiu Saint guard oven my conduct and the same Effort was Nocos j Spry to preserve the affections of the bus band that were employed to win and obtain j the Lover. But to return. That night i sat up late but my he band dial not come. All thought j it be thinks to lighten me into submission by staying out Lato a thing to never done before but to will find his mistake. Finding that he had taken the Niubo key i determined to sit up no longer. I retired but could not sleep. The mild beams of i the Moon came softly stealing through the window tilling the Wooin with fantastic rid pcs of Light and Shade bearing in Inird n self examination so Long deferred. A j the night deepened and my husband came not i wept bitter thais of self accusation Ami in proportion to my fears for his safety i did my repentance for the past and resolve i Lor the future deepen Ami expand. I knew the store had closed some Houis i before Ami to had few friends indeed none a Viii whom to con la to upending the oven ing. Where can to be was the constantly i cuiling question. Just As the clock j struck one i heard the Click of Tho night key and i mops on stairs. Willi my fears vanished repentance from my Licarte and by the Lime he readied the room i was prepared to pour a storm of invective on his head. To paused on the threshold and As the Moon shone full in his lace 1 perceived that he was Pale and agitated and in the Moonlight presented a Ghasi Siuess that shocked me so much that i sprang the bed exclaiming Jseph or. La loud what it the matter " he started at me an Umant and in an tone implied Don t be a fool Clara. Go Back to bed and let me 1 he Tiuch hashed on my mind and again 1 pressed my Pillow where i sought to fasten the blame on him rather than Lake any share on myself. The next Day nothing was said of the occurrences of Tho preceding Day and night in Laet there were few words spoken on any subject i fell injured and a gloom seemed to have settled on inc countenance and manner of my husband. Ii was not until Many years after that i knew what i May As Well mention now. When my. Self acid left the store on the eventful night he paused a moment on the . Uncertain whither to direct his step dreading after Tho tailings of inc Day to encounter the fret ulness of an Alibi Liary wife at Homo. Home Home no longer v be his gentle and peace Loving spirit. Just then ail acquaintance passed and accosting him gaily invited him to so and partake of an Oyster supper it a fashionable Rasta uial. Unhappily his stomach prompted his mind to accept inc invitation. Tinl night the tempting wine cup was held to his lips a second and third followed in rapid succession and in that state he sought his chamber As we have a Arcady seen. _ following this there came a succession of Days and months fraught with the deep est misery to both of us. 1 will Diu a veil Over the recollections of this period Only mentioning that but few months had elapsed before the hollow Cheeks and blood shot eyes told a tale that Toije who saw him could Lail to rend. My husband s con duet Ami instead of causing sell reproach and g pity led me to look upon myself As one of Iho Moat injured l Wivo ital my Pettish and wicked heart hardened towards him till i rarely spoke save in harshness and reproach. We had now been married about two years. Uno morning i in. went 10 the store As usual Lul soon returned. On looking no Hin i caught my breath in Aston ulu neut. His eyes wore wild and gleamed like hot coals and to staggered across the room and would Havo had he not grasped a chair into which to sunk. He Bat a moment As if collecting his thoughts then in a voice Linn and solemn while i almost Felt his burning gaze to said Clara this Day 1 am a ruined Man my employers Havo watched my Steps Havo expostulated with me finding it to no Pur pose this Day on which i should Havo been raised to an honorable and profitable Posi Tion finds to cast Oil sick broken hearted Alono without Money and without fiiends.1 Tio Oble and disappointment drove Ino to 1 the wine cup then to find oblivion for my sorrows i neglected inv business became involved in debt and this is do cout c Quence. A bunt a year from this time our Litlo boy was born but my Eup of Joy at this event was doomed to be mingled with Sor i Row. Joseph began rapidly to Dolino neither love nor care would have him and they Laid him in a Shady Nook beneath the great Willow in the Corner of Tho farm and Tho Little Brook Babbles by murmuring his requiem to this Day. Just As his Oyes were closing forever on this world 1 Knelt beside him with our boy in inv arms. My Hus band placed one wasted hand on the head of the child and Tho other on mine and said Clara inasmuch As you Lovo me i guard Well the loot slept of this Little one1 1 entrust his happiness to your keening believing our heavenly father will Olesa your endeavours Farwell Tho god of love bless and keep you my wife and i have considered this his dying Trust a sacred one and have endeavoured to execute it with what Success the Well ordered life of my son will at Lem. I remained al Homo till Iny t ii married Intel Heidi i have lived in the family. My Mother has passed away and to Micro arc now two Graves beneath the Willow. My father i an aged Man and resides with my eldest sister in the old Homestead. I am an old woman full of years and experience but i Trust that each successive year since i returned to my father s Huus has found me Wiser and better and if the knowledge of my bitter experience shall prevent your taking a single false step which will surely be Roll used by its appropriate punishment the end in writing this confession will Here been accomplished. A Garden overrun with weeds. " father i like to go to school said Harry Williams one morning. " i wish you let to always stay at Home. A hails l biker s father Don t make him go to school. Or. Williams took his Little to by the hand and said kindly to him " Coine my Sou t want to show you something in the Harry walked into the Garden with his father who led him along until they came to a bed which pea were growing the vines supported by thin branches that had been placed in the ground. Not a Weed was to be seen about the roots nor even disfiguring the walks around the bed in which they had been planted. 44 see How beautifully these peas Are growing Iny son said or. Williams. " How clean and healthy the tines look we shall have an abundant crop. Now let to show you the vines in or. L biker s Gar Den. We can look at the Iii through a great Hole in his or. Williams then led Harry through the Garden Gate and across the Road to look al or. L biker s pea vines through a Hole in the Fence. The bed in which Ulicy were growing was near to the Road so they had no Difili culty in seeing it. After looking into the Garden for a few moments or. Williams said " Well my son what do you think of or. L biker s pea vines Oil father " replied the Little boy u i never saw such poor looking peas in my life there Are 110 Sticks for them to run upon and the weeds arc nearly As High As the peas Obein Civ cd. There won t to Hall a i on " Why Are Lioy so much worse Sihau ours Harry " because they Hove been loft to Crow As Lioy pleased. I suppose or. Parker j is planted them and never look any Caro of to Lien afterwards. He has neither taken out the Woods nor helped them to grow yen that is Jim the truth my son. A Garden will Hoo ii he overrun with weeds and Briers if it is not cultivated with the great est care. And just to it is with the human Garden. This precious Garden must he trained and watered and kept free from weeds or it will run to waste. Children s minds Are like Garden Beds and they must he As carefully tended and fully than the choicest plants. If you my son were never to go to school nor have Good seeds of knowledge planted in your mind it would when you become a Man resemble the Weed covered neglected bed to hate just been looking at instead of the Beautiful one in our Garden. Would you think me tight to neglect my Garden As or. Parker neglects Loisl " " of no father your Garden is a Good Garden but or. Parker s is All of min with weeds Ami Hideru. It won t yield half As much As yours " or my son do you think i would be right if i neglected my Sou As or. Paiker neglects his son allowing him to run wild und his mind uncultivated to become Over grown with Wendul Little hurry made no reply but he understood pretty coca try what his father meant. " i Send you to school or. Williams continued in order that the Garden of your Mill May have Good seeds sown in it and that these seeds May spin us up and grow and produce plentifully. Now which would you prefer to stay at heme Fiton school and so let the Garden of your mind be oven in with weeds or of to school and have this Garden cultivated 1" " i would rather go to school said Harry. " but father is Charles Paiker s mind overrun with Weed " i am afraid that it is. If not it certainly will be if father does not Send him l to school. For a Little Hoy not to to sent to j school is a great misfortune Ami i Hope you will think Tho privilege of going to1 school a very great one indeed. Harry Williams listened to All his father had to say and what was better thought about it Joo he never again asked to slay Home of town school. Something Worth knowing.

There is n Man somewhere in America who is 10 Lull that to is obliged to run up a ladder every Lime he brushes his hair. The Bowie knife the into cold bunted or. Clay was n Man of great Resolution and considerable daring. Iio onco told i lie following anecdote to a Friend of ours. Travelling Early inn Hood in n Public convocation in a South Kaster state lie found himself in the company of i three other persons consisting of a Young lady and gentleman her husband and of an Wiuli Viduna muffled up in a cloak whose coun Tenanes wan concealed and who appeared to 1 0 indulging in a Toto a Toto with Morphe us. Suddenly a Hig Brawny kentuckian got into the Couch smoking a Cigar and frowned fiercely around As much As to Sav i m half horse Hull Alligator the Jailer i Tower of the Forest All Brimstone hut the Houd and ears and that s Aqui Fortis in tact to looked As Savago As a Moat axe and puked Forth huge volumes of is Aock without Rcpt Aroneo to tha company within especially of Tho lady who manifested certain timid symptoms of annoy Unco. Presently after porno whispering the Gen Flemun with Het in Tho pol test accents re 1 Quested Trio stranger nut to smoke us it in 1 noyed his companion. The fellow answered 1 reckon i be paid my Placo. I la Smoko As much us i darn please and All creation Shan t Stop Mono How Willi that to looked Dan porous and rolled i eyes round As 4i? As a Rattlesnake. It was evident to had no objection to quarrel and that if it occurred it was Likely to Lead to a deadly struggle. Tho Young Man who had spoken to him shrunk Back and was silent. Clay Felt Bis Goll entry aroused. To considered for a moment whether he should interfere but experienced a natural Rel Betanco to draw upon himself the brutal violence of his Gigantic adversary. In Tho Lawless country to knew his life might to sacrificed a avenged lie knew himself physically unequal to Tho con test and to thought Alicr All it was not i business quixotic ally to take up another Tunn s quarrel. � feeling pity for Tho insulted and disgust toward Tho insulted to determined to take no notice when very quietly indeed the cloaked Siguro in Tho Cornor assumed an up right position and Tho Mantlo was suffered to All from it without a flirt or excitement. The Small but sinewy Framo of a Man plainly dressed in a tightly buttoned frock coat with nothing remarkable about his appear Ance was seen and a pair of Bright Gray Oyass sought Tho fierce topics of the ferocious kentuckian. Without a word this May Fig i Uro passed his hand under his Collur at the Hack of Bis neck and slowly and deliberately pulled Forth a Long extremely Long and glittering knife from its Sheath in that sin i Gular place. Stranger to said my name j is col James Howie Woll known in Arkan Sas and Louisiana and if you Don t put that Cigar out of Tho window in a Quarter of a minute i la put this knife through your Bow Els As sure As death Clay to never forgot in after life the j expression of Tho colonel s Eyo at that moment. The predominant impression made upon him was Tho certainty of Tho threat to aug fulfilled and apparently Thosam conviction impressed itself Ere Long upon Tho of fender. During two or three seconds Bis eyes met that of Howie lie was Tho weak or and to quailed. With a curse to Toro Tho Cigar from Between his Teeth and Flung it scowling but downcast out of the coach window. Upon this colonel Rozio Aldol in brately replaced his Long knife in his Ciccon Trie biding place and without saying a word to any Ono else or even vouchsafe no a glance to any one refolded his cloak around him und did not utter another syllable to the end of Tho quarterly review for january.
