"THE LAND WE LOVE,"
BY FATHER RYAN
Biand of the gentle atl'brave!
Our love is wide as the woe,
It leepens beside every grave,
Where the heart of a hero lies low.
Land'of thea-hrightiest of skies!
Our lovoglow. tiho inore'miel thy glootm,
Our hearts, by the saldiest of ties,
Cling closest to thee in thy doom.
Land where the desolate weep !
In a sor'row too deep to censole,
Our tears are but streams, making deep
The ocean of love in our soul.
Land where the victor flag waves
Where only the ldead ire tIe( free,
Bach link ot' the chain that enshives,
Shall bind us the closer to thee.
L-und where I lie sign of Lite gross '
Its shadows of sorrow halh shed,
We measure our love by thy loss;
Thy loss ---by the graves o0'our dead!

CXL'lrian OF Oxioxs.--The main
crop, if not already down should be as
souln as possible, and as it. is a crop or
considerable importance, we offer a few
wo: ds of advice. The ground having
been plowed or trenched during the an
umn or winter, is allowed to renimtin'
that state until in a goo condition to
work, when it is levelled down and
marked out into beds three and a half
or fout feet wide, with spaces eighteent
inches wide. Before the seed is sown,
the beds are raised somewhat. above thim
ordinary level by thi& soil from the cigl:.
teen iieh spaces, and when the surface
has .become perfectly dry the seed is
sown and the beds rolled or trodden
down until tiey appea' as hard as a
gravel walk. A thin coating of soil is
then strewn evenly over the whole, ad
the roller passed over the beds. The
beds being narrow, enable tihe operator
to weed, loe and clean wiill facilit v,
without i:nhry to the plants. 'l'he ad
