i Milam ob Whlssrllinz.
I hav pent a great dcal"df earchin
and some money, tew find out who was
.the fast wliissler, bat up to now I am
just ax much uncivilized on the subjekt
.as I wax.
I kan tell who played on the fust juice
harp and who beat the fjist tin pan, and
I kno the year that the harp uv a thou
sand strings was diskorered in, but when
whistling wax an infant ix ax hard for
me tew say ax mi prayers in Io dutch.
Whissling iz a wind instrument, and
iz did bi puckering np the mouth and
blowing trough through the hole.
If i had a boy who couldn't whisscll, i
don't want tew bo understood that i shud
feel at liberj' te w give the boy up for
lost, but would much rather ho would
kno ho tow whisscll" fust rate than kno
how tew play a second rate gaume of
I wouldn't forco a boy ov mine tew
whisscll ainu his natral inclinashu.
"Wimmiii, az a kind, or in a lump, are
poor wliisslers; 1 don t kno how 1 found
this out buti am glad ov it; itiz a good
deal like crowing in a hen.
Crowing iz an unlady like thing in a
hen tew do.
I have often heard hcn9 tri tew crow,
but i never knu one tew do herself jus
tiss. A rooster kan kro well, and a hen kan
kluk well, and i sa let each one of them
ttik tew their trade.
Xlucking iz ju&t az necessary in this
world ;az crowing, cbpeshly if it is well
But i want il weli understood that i
am the last man on reckon! who would
refuse a wyman a chance tow whisscll
if she was certain 3he had thcright to
pucker for it.
I never knu a good whissler but what
had a good constitushun. Whissling iz
composed of pucker and wind, and these
two accomplishments denote vigor.
Some people ahvn- whisscll whare
thare is danger ; this they do to keep the
Iraid out of them. When i. waz a boy i
always koiiMderud whiisiiii tho next
best thing to a kaudlc to go down cellar
with in the nite time. "
The best whisslcrs i hav ever heartl
hav been among the negroes. (I make
this remark with the highest respeck to
to the accomplishments uv the whitiy.)
. I hav heard a South Karoliny darkey
winsseii so natral that a mocking turd
would drop a worm out of his bill and
I don't want any better evidence of the
general honesty thar iz in a whissell tlian
the fact that there au.'t nothing which a
dog will answer quicker than a whisscll
ov his master, and dogs arc az good judg
es ov honesty az onny krittcr that live.
It jz hard work to phool a dog onco,
and it is next to impossible to phool him
the second time.
I ain't afraid to tmst enny man for a
hinall amount who iz a good whissler.
I wouldn't want to sell him a farm on
credit, lor i should cxpektto have totak
the farm back awhile and remove the
You can't whissell a mortagago oph
from a farm.

crops. As well hope tor liga Irom this
tles, or "rapes Irom thorns, as lor good
crops from a soil which lias been repeat
edly, called to give, without receiving
anj' return in the shape ot manure. When
the demands exceed the supply, a scarc
ity in the market is sure to follow, but
no more certainly than a scanty crop
from a soil of which a demand for crops
has repeatedly beep made, with no cor
responding supply of dressing. Failure
is just as sure to be the result, as that a
commercial house can not continue to
pay out while receiving no income, or
that death and decay is stamped, npon all
nature. How many farmers there are
who loso sight of these plain teachings
of common sense.
How many farmers arc to-day groping
along, finding it difpcult to make both
ends meet, and growing poorer year af
ter year, merely because they had not
the couraKC, at the start, to invest in
good manure. JJut the evil would be
partially remedied by a judicious use of
what they have. A largo amount of val
uable fctilizing material is annually wast
ed about every farm-house and farm-j-ard,
adding nothing to the improvement and'
richness of the soil, but flowiiij; out into
gutters and cesspools, infecting tho atr
mosphcre, and contributing malaria and
disease, squaler and wretchedness, where
the charms 01 the liowjcr-bcus, the more
solid comforts of the market "arden. the
broad, green fields, tho delightful orch
ards, the rich glow ot robust health, and
the' delights oi checrlui home, alone
should bo engendered.
The-Dutchlcss Farmci", in'an article
on the thoroug-bacd horse, tcrseJj- shows
up his points ot superiority as follows :
1. They are moro intelligent, possess
ing more brain and nervous matter.
2. They are, from their intelligence,
more tractable and kind in their disposi
tion and temper.
3. They arc Ie-. liable to disease, from
a superior organization.
4. Thtiy arc more elegant in carriage
a. They arc. superior in action.
0. They endure the vicissitudes of heat
Tdey live to a much greater age;
maintainsng their usefulness.
8. They are .superior in fleetnes, dura
bility, bravery and breathing powers
I). Thej always do and always will
command a higher price in the market
then any other breed.
If you will ox-imine the thorough-bred
youwill, on invest,g:ition find a superior
animal organizauon his bones are more
solid, his tendons strong and much better
denned, his inuc-lcs more firm and elastic
in fact, his form and quality are much
superior fleet and powerful than any oth
er variety of the horse tribe. lie will
preform much moio ?abor in given time,
and repeat the task oftcner, comming
round quicker from overwork than anv
animal of inferior blood. When the cold
blooded horse is over-worked his spirits
sink and hisrocovcry is slow, and some
times never complete. A square inch of
ionc irom a thorough-bred horse is much
heavier than a square inch Irom a cart
hore, the latter resembling pumice stone
while the former is solid, partaking more
of the elosegraihed nature of ivory. The
same remark will apply to the tendons
