We noticed a statement a few Days a Ince of the fact that the Sale of newspapers through new dealers in new York City now amount to Over two millions of dollars in the same time that Only about seventy ave thousand dollars Worth was sold ten years ago. The newspaper is now a necessity in every Home. But the most As. Bonishing increase has been in the sums paid for advertising. Some men have paid but fortunes in advertising and they have made not Only the Money so paid but Large fortunes beside. Patent Medicine dealers Are among the largest advertisers. Yet it is often la Case that some shrewd tean in another business takes the advantage of the Trade by the skillful advertisement of his wares. Barnum Bonner Rajnes Imd Ayres Are among the most noted of the advertisers in this country. The number of new advertisements in some of the a new York papers is astonishing but the Art is by no Means a Yankee one. The advertisements in the London times usually number Over 2,500, and the annual Bill of Ono London firm for advertising is said to be 8200,000 three others Are mentioned which annually pay $50,00j for the same purpose. The advertising of the eighth edition of the encyclopedia Brittania Cost 815.000. In the great cities of both England and the United states nothing is More Mtnlion Thui to see Large business Stab in ments which seem to have an immense advantage Over All competitors by the wealth experience and prestige they have acquired dropped gradually out of Public View and be succeed by firms of smaller s capital More Energy and More determination to have the fact that they sell such a Nosuch commodities known from one end of the land to the other. In other words the new establishments advertise the old die of dignity. The former Are ravenous to pass out of obscurity into publicity the latter belial of that their publicity is so of a to its that it Canoot obscured. The that they must thrust them a Lea on Public attention or be disregarded the second having once obtained Lubete attention suppose they have arrest cd it Perma Oens a while in fact nothing is More Sharaet erratic of the world than the a ase with which it forge la. The Cha act a Ristic of the experienced showman is his lavish expenditure for advertising. Time and i in troupes of real Merit fail simply because not Well put before the Public while others of Little Merit draw Crow cd houses night after night. The main object a advertising is to make one s business so a on spacious that people talk about it and Tymn if it a honesty conducted wealth is a a a Hain to follow. Next to having something Fiat lbs want is the faculty of so putting it before their minds a to Malta them think they want Indiana a amt la. Iils Flash of a a a Isis.

And yet of most wondering Reader do not understand me that the thing cannot be done. But do you know How much Corn shrinks from the time it is harvested till thoroughly cured say in february or March Well i will Tell you it is one Quarter. With Western Corn it is possible to raise one Hundred bushels of shelled Corn upon an acre. I planted some of the Northern Ohio Reb cod Dent last Spring. It came up late but after All i made a crop of sixty bushels of shelled Corn to the Sere though i had Only ninety bushels of ears of sound Corn upon the same surface. Under the most favo Cable circumstances of land and season i could be made to believe that one Hundred bushels of shelled Corn had been grown upon an acre. But it s not oftener then one in one Hundred thousand. By the Way i should advise those Farmers in the wheat counties to try a few acres of the red cob Dent. Plant Earl on Good ground and you will find it pays. I did. And shall Plant again this Spring somewhat extensively. It is As Early As the big Dutton and much More productive. If Corr be planted in Hills feet each Way there will be 3,555 Hills upon an acre. Very few Farmers Ever have All the Hills standing. 6t containing an average of four stalks to the Hill. But allowing that each Hill has four stalks and each stalk a Good sound ear and there would be of common Corn fifty four bushels to the acre. Four ears of Corn Well cured will weigh a Pound from which there should be deducted 1-Llth for cob. Did you Ever think my Friend How much you lost if you did not have your full number of Bills and each Hill its four Good stalks you can see now Why your very a burp neighbor always gathered his seed Corn from the stalks bearing two or More ears. Quot All Frommon Quot Well you May probably think so but i happen to know better for by that Means i have added nearly or quite one Quarter of my crop. Each year when i attend to it i see an improvement the next. Plant in the Moon Quot no. Sir Plant in the ground and get that in the Best possible order. Plow and manure Well and Plant the moment the ground is warm enough for the Corn to vegetate Quick and make a rapid growth. Begin cultivation the moment the Corn is up an Inch an do not Stop till it s too High to work among Mark your rows straight a possible and you will find much Comfort in after culture.

I waa forty Yuan old Whan i married Carolina Mowbray. A a Vara disappointment which i had sex Laniad in Early life had changed me Mindli. To most Persona i seemed cold hearted and repulsive but i thought she knew a Batter. Ear father was a Clergyman of Amul maans and she had four brother two of them abroad. By Accident i met her. Courtship was Short. Her father was Hap f by to see his last child provided for and our wedding was celebrated with great pomp. Two of her Brothers were there the other two were in India. I took her to our secluded House in the country and for a year and More i lived a life of happiness such As Falls to the lot of few. She was of wonderful Beauty. Tall of exquisitely moulded shape with flashing eyes of Brilliant blackness she was much Given to melancholy whip greatly increased after the first Yaar of our Union. I than began to fancy that the memory of some old affection haunted her but Ehe often told me that i was the Only Man she Ever loved and that my Well known learning and accomplishments those were her words had Long caused her to entertain tor me the greatest respect even before she had seen me. Several times i come before her unexpected and found her in tears with an open letter in her hand. On my entreating her to let me know the cause of her unhappiness she pleaded nervousness the thought of her father s delicate health and other family matters which she assured me i could not enter into. I troubled myself much about this. I thought that my manner toward her was not demonstrative enough and indeed no manner could show the boundless depth of my love for her then i thought that the disparity of our years precluded a perfect interchange of feeling and sentiment. We had been married fifteen months when most unexpected news come to me from London. An English relative had died there leaving me a Large Fortune and my presence was required in Bengel to arrange important affairs. Finding that a ship was soon shout to sail i resolved to Uke passage in her and i settled All things a Andrul for my wife s Comfort during my absence which was to be for a Twelvemonth. Her despondency deepened and strove to flatter myself that my approaching departure was the cause. I had a Lovely Garden Laid out for her. A Side walk led Down to a tasteful Bridge of ornamental Wood which spanned a pretty Stream an insignificant Stream in dry weather but a dangerous torrent after rain. In time of flood the water rushed Down with great velocity and to prevent the Quot bursting Quot of the Bridge several of the flooring boards were not nailed Down. This Bridge led into a Park just beyond which were the stables and the stables commanded a View of our Garden. Although there was thus a Short Cut to the stables from the House none of the servants were allowed to Avail themselves of it our usual evening stroll waa the Garden and the Park and those were strictly private. For some Days the rain had been falling heavily and our walks were stopped. I Wii much occupied however by business in the neighbouring town and did not return As Early As usual for several Days in succession. I returned one dark Rainy evening just before Sunset. Much rain had fallen and As i crossed the Bridge on foot i noticed the Stream flowing turbid and whistling beneath. This was not my usual Way of going Home but in cop sequence of the Ain i made straight to the stables gave my horse to the Groom and took the Short Cut. There was a Shady summer House in the upper Corner of the Garden and i observed Tommy Surprise a Man s footprints along the path leading thither from the Bridge. The prints were those of a fashionably made Boot and my Surprise was increased by coming to a spot in which they seemed to have been met by another person s prints and thence b<4h led to the summer House. Whose foot but hers could have made those tinny impressions i reached the attn air House and there i found my wife. Good heaven Caroline Quot i exclaimed Quot you out on such an evening you to delicate Quot she waa shivering with Quot who was Here Quot i said.

I pleaded headache Aad retired to my Library. She knew that i never could Bear the presence of Eny one when ill and i waa Safe from interruption. Amidst the whirling dance of my maddening thoughts no idea of revenge on her had any place. I Don t believe in the commonly received opinion that real love can be Ohab sed into hate. I could not Bate by. I even thought with pity of the utter sorrow that could not fail to be hers in this world for evermore. But mme he escape me no. How Best to proceed Quot shall i go and question my Groom who must from the stables have sometime witnessed their stolen no my instincts revolted at the idea of talking to a Groom about her fallen Angel though Ehe was. I would do it Sll myself. My plans were soon formed. Early next morning i Rode to our Little town and event Back by my servant,.a note to my wife stating that i was compelled to Start to the City that moment to make some arrangements about my voyage and that i should be absent at least a week. Then went to do purchased a Light coloured wig a Large pair of Green spectacles and disguised with these and a Large Beard and moustache returned to our Village where i engaged apartments opposite the Post office. There i remained on the watch. Three Days after my supposed departure my wife s Carriage drove up to the shop kept by the postmaster. Previous to her entering the shop i saw her drop a note into the letter Box. After a few minutes delay in making purchases she drove off again. Late in the afternoon a tall distinguished looking Man with a travelling Cap its peek closely drawn Down Over his face entered the shop. I Felt this to be my enemy. I saw him receive a letter from the postmaster s wife and hastily walk away. I hurried to the shop and in broken English asked if there were letters for or. Thirl she replied in the negative but i earnestly requested her to look Over All the letters. This was in order to gain time for a question or two. I inquired who was thai Fine looking Man who had just gone out of the shop she did t know he was a stronger. But was not his name on his letters of yes the name was or. Thornton but he did t live in the Village. Had he been Long in the habit of coming for letters not very Long. 1 walked Forth in the direction of my Home. It was nearly dusk when i come in sight of that spot where my Bliss in life and been. Over the wet spongy Fields Over crumbling fences. Through swollen water courses i had come but danger and fatigue were unwell. A about half a Nile from the House i saw a horse lied up to a Fence. He was with her then. I bid myself close to the Bridge for a while until darkness should conceal my movements. I then hurried across and approached the summer House noiselessly. They were not there. No. Of course they were in the House th6n. I was not Long left in indecision As to my next step. The window of her sitting room opened and there they stood within a few Yards of me his srm thrown around her wrist. I heard him. I saw him kiss her i heard her kiss Hin i heard his impassioned "6ood-by.&Quot and then with the noiseless step of Fate i hastened by a near Cut to the Bridge. I crossed it shoved the ends of three planks off their supports so that the slightest weight Sho fld tilt them Over and waited about ten Yards off with a heart whose throbs i heard above the roaring of the angry flood. He Ceme. He made a few Steps along the Bridge. Then a wild cry a dashing of in mrs together a plunge in the torrent an interval of silence another Ory Quot help help Quot that was All. I was no mortal could escape out of that Rock banked Stream in Ite then state. Next morning i sent a. Note to my wife. Quot Caroline Quot i said Quot i was close to you when you and he parted last night. I saw Eiry thing. He shall come to you no More. Ood forgive i left at once in a ship bound for Bengal. The a Eta of the past few Weeka had made Auch a wreck of me in a body and mind that there ism Many of my fellow passengers who thought me insane.

He wore a red Garibaldi shirt and a helmet hat with a red silk Quot pug Garee Quot Stream Iii behind he had hardly disappeared Over the Steep Bank on the opposite Side of the Cmrk when two shots were heard followed by a shout. I spurred my horse Over the Creek and in few seconds beheld the person who Uhd passed me overthrown his leg pinned to the ground by his horse which had fallen and a Man in i mask about a dozen Yarda a off taking a in at him with a revolver.

If riches could give happiness i ought to be one of the happiest Young Fellows in he said this with a deep sigh and smoked meditatively. I listened to him with great attention. A Fine Young fellow he was a Man every Inch of him. He had evidently been reared As a gentleman and a Bush life had not made him forget his Seriy habits.

For the last few moments a dim presentiment had been creeping Over me which plunged me Back into the horrible past. Quot poor Caroline poor Caroline Quot he said in a Low voice then suddenly looking up Quot i have been a sad scamp and a disgrace to my family but sooner or later the truth will be known. She was my favorite sister. I waa the Younge Yfe ild and was spoiled. I went to India of Ito gambling took to drink and at last feedings we re taken against me for forgery. I was wholly innocent but a Comrade informed me privately that there was no Chance for my acquittal so i made my Ero ape he furnishing me the Means.
