Feast of the Circumcision, Anno Domini, 1870.
Mr. Morgun was a rich and also a good
mao. The people of tho town respected
him, acut him to parliament, and seldom
undertook anything without asking his
advice if a school house was to bc
built, the plan had to be talked over
with him. Widow P. asked him what
she should plant in her field. Farmer
S. always got hia advico in buying cat?
tle, and Mrs. lt. consulted him about
bringing up her boys.
When asked how he was so successful,
Mr. Morgan said: "I will tell you how
it was. One day, wheu I was a lod, a
party ol boys and girls were going to a
distant pasturo to pick whortleberries.
1 wanted to go with them, but was fear?
ful that my futhct would not 1er mo.
When^I told him what was gc ' on,
and he at once gave me permit < to
go with thom, I could hardly "uotaiu
myself for joy, und rushed into the
kitchen and got a big basket, and asked
mother for a luncheon. I hud thc bask
et on my arm, and was just- going out
of thc gato, when my father called mc
back. He took hold of my hand, and
said, in a very gentle voice, 'Joseph,
what arc you going for, to pick berrie?
or to play V ?To pick berrica ' I replied.
'Then, Joseph, I want to tell you one
thing. Uistitis: When you find a
pretty good bush, do not leave it to fiud
a botter one. Thc other boys aud girls
will run about, picking u little hore and
and a little there, wusteiug a great
deal of time, and not getting many ber?
ries. If you do as they do, you will
come home with an empty basket. If
you want berries stick to your bush.'
"He died a few days after, nud I had
to make my way into the world as best
I could. But my father's woid sunk
deep into my mind, and I never forgot
thc czpcricnco of tho whortleberry par?
ty-I "stuck to my bush.' Wheu I
hud a fair place, and was doing tolera?
bly well, I did not leave it and spend
weeks and months in finding one a little
better. When other young men paid,
'Come with us, and wc will make a for
tune in a few weeks,' I shook my head
and'stuck to my bush.' Presently my
employers offered to take mc into busi?
ness with them. I .stayed with thc old
house until thc principals died, and
then I had everything I wanted. The
habit of sticking to my business lcd thc
people to trust me, and gave mc n char?
acter. I ow<! all I have and mn to thin
motto, 'Stick to your bush.' "-Moore?

When Ay I oun was making proposals
for Ins first wile-a daughter ol' the
celebrated Professor Wilson-the lady
informed him that it would bc necessary
to ask thc approval ol' her sire."
"Certainly," said Ay I oil ll ; "but lam
a little dillidcnt in speaking to him on
this subject ; you must just go aud tell
him my proposal yourself."
Tho lady proceeded to the library, and
taking hor father nficctinnatcly hythe
hand, mentioned that Professor Aytouu
had asked her to become his wife. She
lidded: "Shall I accept his offer, papa?
He says; he is too difiident to name
thu subject to you himself."
"Then said old Ohlistophcr, "I had
better write my reply aud pin it to your

the drawing loom. The anxious suiter
read tho answer to his message, which
was in these words: "With thc author's

"I write to say, that so far as I have heard from the "AMMONIATED SOLUBLE SUPER PRO*
PM AT E,' the reports are very favorable indeed. Several planters who have usud that and the f ?
ruvian Guano ?ide by eide, say they cannot distinguish any difference. I have used both, and ibis
your fertiliter shows fully a? well a? the Perneta?, and believe there will bea great demand foi'
next season. It has been used during the present ?toAson on COTTON, with valuable results, by f
following gentlemen, in DALLAS COUNTT, of tbis Slate, to all of whom I refer. DR. WM Mi*

"The Ammoniated Soluble Soper Phosphate of Lime" I received tho 2d day of May, with thor*
quest that I should test its value on COTTON as a fertiliter. When I received it I was nearL ttiroogi
planting, and did not have an aore of ground suitahle to plant In Cotton so Iseleoted one acre mo*
convenient, which WM a pleco nearly worn eut, and wbioh in my judgment, would have prodow
without any fertilizer, about 300 lbs SK KO COTTON per nore. I did not get a good stand-about ! ol
a stand-yet the result ls 390 lbs. Skin COTTON, ?nd about 60 lbs. BOLLS caught by tho frost, ?blot
will open yet.
Thus it proves to be b good article-for any fertiliser that will real ino fifty to one hondredper
cent, as thia bas done, is a good Investment. w. A. COOK.

"WM. CRICHTON ? Son's AMMOMIATID SOLUBLE SUPER-PHOSPHITE or LIME" is at present only
equalled by two of the manures. I am not quite through picking, but there ii so little yat to ba

I can without hesitation reeommend this fertiliser to planters as a No. 1 Cotton Manare.
