ING BACE MY FLOWERS.
"Bring back my flowers !" said a rosy child,
As she played by the streamlet's side,
And cast down wreaths of the flowerets wild
On the ever-hurrying tide.
But the stream flowed on and her treasures bore
To the far-off sparkling sea,
To return to the place of their birth no more,
Though she cried, " Come back to me,
Yea fairest gems of these forest bowers:
Oh, stream! bright stream ! bring back my flow
"Bring back my flowers I" said a noble youth,
As lie mournfully stood alone,
And sadly thought on the broken truth
Of a heart that was once his own
Of alight tait shone on his life's young day,
As brilliant as man c'er knew;
Of a love that his reason had Ted astray,
And to him was no longer true.
"freturn !" lie cried, "life's brightest hours:
Oh, stream of Time! bring back my flowers."
"Bring back my flowers !" a mother sighed,
O'er the grave where her infant slept ;
And where, in her stubbornness and pride,
She her tearful vigils kept.
"Oh, why does the cruel hand of Death
Seek victims so fair as she ?
Ob, why are the loved ones of othersleft,
While mine is thus snatched from me?
Who gave to thee, Death, such cruel powers ?
Oh, grave-dark grave! bring back my flowers!"
" Bring back my flowers !" said a gray haired
For the friends of his youth were fled;
And those he had loved and cherished most
Were slumbering with the dead.
But a faith in his God still cheered him on,
Though the present was dark and drear,
Vor he knew that in Heaven he would meet again
The friends upon earth so dear.
"Come, Death !" he cried, " for in Eden's bow
Our God will restore our long-lost-flowers."
"WE MEET TO PE~f FOREVER,"
We rnet to part forever
We met, but meet no more.
Those hours of joy and happiness
Witlithee are ever o'er.
All drear. seems the cold, cold world;
All niglit--and not one ray
Of hope to light the wilderness
Or eheer my lonely way.
Thy smile an- angel. might have owned
I never more shall see,
Nor hear again thy voice whieli seen'd
Like musie sweet to me.
Thy kiss which thrilled my bosonlr
Thy pure, thy loving kiss,
I never shall receive again
It were too much of bliss.
Eaceh cherished word and token.
Thy goodnesss ever gave,
Bymc alraW be far prised abo~ve
The gems of sea or cave.
Thy memoiry ,..~~
In tliat I'll seek for happiness,;
May heav en keep wiateh c'er thinie.
Bottom Lands Overrated.
We think that the value of ,dver hot.
toms, when compared with fair uplands,
has been and still is much overrated. For
the first few years of cultivation, the
biottoms produce heavy crops, with less
labor tha~n the hill land. But this state
of things is of short duration, unless tbe
low land is withini thme reach of freshets,
and thus receives, as it wiere, an annual
coat of manure from the turbid waters of
An excess of vegetable nmatter nil soils
is of no more use than any other inigre
dient, anid without a due proportion of
the mineral or alkaline constituents, it
would riot bring a crop to maturity. A
light, spongy, ichl piece of bottom is
imore likely to suffecr from dr'outh than a
well composed loam. The changes from
-wvet to dry are more marked in black
mould than in loam, because the latter
holds on to its mnoisture wiith more tenaci
ty. To make good upland proof against
drouth, it is only necessary to stir it well;
anid the subsoil plow produces in this
respect a wonderful effect. It operates
by stirring the mass to a great depth,
into which the surplus rain and moisture
settles in a wet time, to be held in reserve
for a dry one. Bottom land engenders
weeds and useless herbage so much faster
than upland, that in order to keep it clear,
a groa'er amount of labor is necessary.
As in the process of cultivation the vege
table aliment is extracted, it is not so'
easily replaced as' in upland.
In bottom lands, the alkalies become
first exhausted, and our ordinary stable
manure does not replace them. The
variety of crops is greater on upland
than low land. We all know the benefit
of a change of crops. It is like a change
of labor to the humau body-it amounts
to rest or to relief, and is still labor and
Idleness also produces rest, het no
profit; but if a man wvho has been work.

respect very much like land; it becomes
rested by change of crop, and yet loses
It is, therefore, a great advantange to
soil that will produce the greatest variety
of crops. Upland' isalso better for fruit.
For grass it is frequently av good as bot
tom land, only it requires move- amd
better preparation.-West Agr.
A MAIM.-To enable a man, or a
horse, to do a full day's wvork each must

The Farmer's Home.
From an essay on this subject by Mr.
Luke Derwin, we take these suggestions:
" There is no farmer too poor, in our
land-too poor to have a beautiful home
of his own; for it needs not wealth to
make it peaceful and happy. God has
scattered the means all around us, and a
pleasant labor will be sufficient to beau
tify and adorn it. Spare a little ground
around your dwelling for a lawn, trees
and flowers. You can find leisure to
plant the trees, and your daugh(er will, I
trust, gladly attend to the vines and flow.

-If lamp oil is spilled upon a dress that

nediately in a small tub' of cold water.
A portion of the oil will be see~r to'rise

replace it with fresh, and still more oil

Again pour off the water, and fill the tub

Then take out the dress, wvridng it well,

A Case of Supposition.
A Texan who was returning home after
the battle of Buena Vista, having got
separated from his companions, and hav
ing had his horse stolen by .the Indians,
was obliged to take it afoot. Walking
along leisurely one Sunday morning, with
his rifle on his shoulder, looking out for
game to make a breakfast on, without
knowing what day of the week it was,
he suddenly came to a small stream on
the confines of Texas, not knowing that
he had as yet reached the border of his
native State. Perceiving that the stream
abounded in fish, he took a hook and line
from his pocket, and procuring some
worms for bait, he sat down patiently on
the bank, wrapped in a brown study,
thinking of his little farm at home, when
a preacber who was on the circuit rode
suddenly up, and accosted him:
" Hallo, stranger! what are you doing
" Fishing formy breakfast," replied the
Texan, without deigning to look around
at his interrogator.
" Well, do you know you are violating
the Sabbath ?" said the preacher.
" No," said the Texan, turning around
and looking up at the preacher for the
first time, with an air of surprise, which
the preacher took for consternation, "I
must be somc what near the white settle.
"Yes, you are," replied the preacher,
" and violating the Lord's Day, for which
you willhave to answer hereafter, on the
g-rat day of judgment."
The Texan looked up with a supplica

penitent mood a good time to make him
a convert, continued:

the preacher, warming with his own elo
quence, "supposing the angel Gabriel
was to blow his horn I"
The Texan coolly hauled in his line,
and putting it into his pocket, rose to his
feet, and fronting the preacher, said:
" You ask me whar I think I would go to
