THE FARwRR'S WIFE.
ELIZA X., in the Rural New Yorker.
She sitteth at home, in the old retreat
The grandsiro loved in his day,
And hair-cloth covers the oaken seat,
Of ingrain fine is the carpet neat,
Bedight with colors gay.
And pictures hang from the painted wall,
And garnish the music stoni,
And grace the table, the spacious hall
They came from the hand of the artist, all
The daughter at boarding school.
The old retreat wears a happier face
The porch where the song-bird calls
Hath a trumpet-vine, and a rose to grace
The pillar'd way, and the eye may trace
Rich paint where the sunlight falls.
No longer left to the ploughshaie rude
Is the grassy lawn below;
The noisette climbs where the sunflower stood,
And in the place of the dense old wood .
The orchard and vinery grow.
The long-weoled sheep and the short-horned cow,
- The hen with the feathery shoe,
The Hong Kong, the suffolk, the subsoil plough,
Are all the pride of the farmer now,
And the farmer's lady too.
She knoweth to trace each honored line
Of the dan in the pasture green;
She seeketh from science the fruit most fine,
And for the guest who cometh to dine
She spreads the table clean.
The farmer's wife hath her hour of toil
'Tis not in the giddy whirl
Where fashior. the purest heart may spoil,
And sober senses of man recoil
From the nind of the city girl!
Oh, give me the heart content to dwell
Away from the glare of strife,
Where taste, and beauty, and order tell
How wealth may lavish her bounty well
On the home of the farmer's wife.
CULTURE OF THE MELON.
There is no fruit that enters so largely
into the daily consumption of our people as
the melon, and none that seems to be so
little understood or appreciated in its cul
ture. A fine flavored water or musk imelon
should not be planted within one hundred
yards of any other melon, or any of the
melon family. Gourds, squashes or cueum
bers should never be planted in the same
garden or field with melons, for the volatile
nature of each will mix, making hybrids of
the next generation, giving the melon agour
dv, squashy flavor, and softening the shell
ot' the gourd. The melon delights in a san
dy soil, and to have them in their greatest
perfection, the ground should be deeply spa
ded or sub-soil plowed. The hills should be
about ten feet apart. The watermelon vine
is very subject to injury from water; heavy
and long continued rains give the appear
ance of having been scalded, hence the ne
cessity of planting on hills instead of on a
level. Holes should be excavated and filled
in with well rotted manure, with a mound
made over the manure at least twelve inches
higher in the centre than on the outside ; on
the centre of this mound, plant the seed,
plant some six or eight, and when they have
four leaves, thin out to ~three plants in a
hill. As the vines begin to run, branch and
bloom, pinch out the terminal bud, which
will throw the whole vigor of the vine into
the young fruit just set ; as the fruit increa
ses in size, take off all but one to a branch,
and allow but one melon to ripen on one
An overloaded melon vine will produce
but inferior fruit. The cultivator should
bear in mind that the roots of melons run
just as fast and far as the vine extends, and
that the practice of laying back the vines
over the hills, and plowing deeply between
the hills, is very injurious to the crop. The
mrelon ground cannot be broken too deep
b'fore the vines begin to run, but it is a pos.
itive injury to the vine for the plow to go
three inches below the surface, over which
the vine has already run. Great care should
be taken in handling the vines when work
ing among them with the hoe. For every
tendril broken or bruised on the vine, the
fruit is retarded in its maturity. Keep the
ground clean around the vines, and as fat
as the vine elongates a branch, peg it down,
so that the winds may not blow them about
and break them. If' the striped bug is trou
blesome, mix one portion of guano to two
of gypsum, and dust over the vine when the
dew is on-the bugs will quickly depart.
The first melons that set on the vine will
mature in four weeks from the time of the
setting. T he second settings ut about three
weeks. As the season advances, they will
mature in less than three weeks. Fine crops
of melons are made by using brush for the
vines to run on, and cling to. The seed of
the first melon that ripens should be saved
for the next season's planting, provided it
grew where no other member of the melon
ihmily could impregnate it.-otton Pluan
ter andU Soil.
For muileh cows clover constitutes one of
the best of pastures. Corn must be used
in turning them on it in the spring ; other
wise they are liable to be hoven-that is,
from fermentation of clover in the first
stomach they become so distended with gas
as to endanger their lives if not speedily re
lieved. To guard against this, they must not
be turned onl the clover till the dew is en
tirely dried offadith pasture is good,
they should not at first be allowed to re
main on more than an hour at a time.
If any cattle should become hovenm, they
may he promptly relieved by the following
As soon as you discover the affection,
which you will know by their swollen ap
pearance anid uneasy movements, make a
straw rope, well twisted, about as thick as
your wrist, turn the cow into her stall, and
putting the rope into her mouth, tie it over
the top of her head behind her horns; se
cure it well and turn her loose. In her en
deavors to get rid of the straw rope, she
will so turn up her head as to allow the es
cape of the gas, and in fifteen minutes she
will be relieved.
Some five or six years ago we found six
of our cows thus affected at the same timme;
hat-iig somewhere read of the above reme
dy we tried it, with immediate success; the
cattle were so much affeted that they must
soon have died if not releived. We have
seen it tried several times since, and alwvays
with success.-Louinille Jou-rnal.
BOIL YOLa MoA5sIS.-Whenl molasses
is used in cooking, it is a very great im
provement to boil and skim it before you
use it. It takes out the raw taste, and makes
it almost as good as sugar. When the mo
lasses is much used for cooking, it is well to
prepare one or two gallons in this way at a
In order to convince a neighbor of the
usefulness of birds, a farmer near Binghamp
ton, New York, last year, shot a yellow bird
in his wheat field, opened its craw, and found
in it two hundred weevils, and but four
grains of *Wheat, and in these four grains the
weevils bad burrowed.
To KEEP FURS.-Roll the furs (of any
description) into compact, close bundles,
and wrap around them two, three, or more
wrappings of unbroken paper, in such man
ner as to preventthe ingress of insects. If
this be properly done, they may be put
where most convenient, in a dark place or
in a light one, in a tight drawer or on an
open shelf, and may be left undisturbed un
til wanted, whether that be six months or
six years, without danger. No need of cam
phor, tobacco, &c.,
FLAXSEED TO INcREASE THE YIELD OF
MIL..-Oil-cake has long been known, in
those districts where linseed-oil is manufac
tured, as a cheap food for cows in milk. A
Bavarian landlord has been experimenting
with linseed, to increase the flow of milk in
his heifers. His theory was that this diet
would affect the lacteal development of the
young cow permanently. He selected a lot
of animals, and began to feed about three
months before they were expected to calve,
with a handful of boiled flaxseed, strewn
over their fodder twice a day. The result
was that the heifers thus treated had much
larger udders than others of the same age
and quality on ordinary fodder. The supe
rior milking qualities continued after the se
cond calving, and he is confident that this
treatment permanently affects the character
of the cow as a good milker. This hint is
worth following up by those dairymen -who
have heifers coming in this season. If a lit
tie extra feed at this time will make the
heifer a better milker through life, the extra
expenses is certainly justified.

Like a low sweet echo from the land o

And the mother continued--"Give us thi!

" Our daily bread," lingered a mnoment
on the air, as the mother's v-oice was hushei

" And forgive us our debts as we also for

The eyes of the children had dropped foi

Far back, through many year-s, have my
thoughts been wandering. At my mother'm

came into a great temptation. Had I faillen:
in that temptation, I would have fallen,]I

str-uggle in my imind wont .on for hours. I
was about yielding. All the barriers I could

At first no articulate sound was hiear-d, yet
something in the tones that stirred my hear-t
with new and strange emotions. At length
there came to my ears, in the earnest, lov-ing
voice of a woman, the words--" Deliver us
fr-onm evil." For an inlstanbit seemed to mec
as if the voice was that of my mother.
Back, with a sudden bound, though all a
child in heart again, I was kneeling at my
Humbly and reverently I said over- the
words of the holy prayer she had taught me,
heart and eyes uplifted to Heaven. The
hour and power of darkness had passed. I
was no0 longer standing in slippery places
with a flood of waters ready to swveep me
to destruction; but my feet wer-e on a rock.
My mother's pious care had saved her son.
In the holy words she taught me in child
hood there was a living power to resist evil
through all my after life. Ah ! that un
known mother, as she taught her child to re
peat his evening prayer, how little dreamed
she that the holy words were to reach a
stranger's car, and save him through the
memories of his own childhood and his own
mother ! And yet it was so. What a pow

and rests in the hearts of inniocent children.
MAJWcmIa O.-What a mighty proces
sion has been nmaching toward the grave du
ring the past year. At the estimate, since
the first of January 1856, more than 31,500,.
000 of the world's population have gone
down to the earth again. Place them in
lng arra.y, and they wil give a moving
column of more than 1,300 to every mile
of the globe's eircumference! Only think
of it; ponder and look upon those astonish
ing computations! What a spectacle, as
they "move on," tramp, tramp, tramp
forward! upon this stupendous dead march!
Life is short and time is feeting
And our hearts, though strong and brave,
Still like muffled drums are beating
Funeral marches to the grave!
She had no mother! What a volume of
sorrowful truth is comprised in that single
sentence, no mother! We must go far
down the hard,'rough path of life and become
inured to care and sorrow in their sternest
forms, before we can take home to our own
experience the dread reality-no mother
without a struggle and a tear. But when it
is said of a frail young girl just passing from
childhood towards the life of woman, how
sad is the story summed up in that one
short sentence! Who now will check the
wayward fancies-who now shall bear with
the errors and failings of the motherless
Deal gently with the child. Let not the
cup of her sorrows be overfilled by the
harshness of your bearing, or your unsym
pathizing coolness. Is she heedless of her
doing? Is she forgetful of her duty? Is
she careless in her acts? Remember, oh,
remember, "she has no mother !" When
her vonng companions are gay and joyous,
doesshe sit sorrowing? Does she pass with
a down-cast eye and languid step, when you
would fain witness the gushing and over
flowing gladness of youth ? Chide her not,
for she is motherless; and the great sorrow
comes down upon her soul like an incumbus.
Can you gain her confidence-can you
win her love? Come, then, to the mother
less with your tenderest care, and by the
imiemory of your own mother, already, per
haps, passed away-by the fullness of your
own remembered sorrow-by the possibili
ty that your own child may yet be mother
less, contribute as ftras you may, to relieve
the loss of that fiLir, frail child, who is writ.
