are annually wasted from not boing gathered
at tho right time. They aro left till a con
venient season, and then ono "job is made
of it. Ia this way, as thoy do not ripen
the same time, tho first matured and most
valuable are lost, and many are taken while
yet green and worthless. The gnrden should
be visited every day from tho first ripening,
and the mature heads collected, tho stalks
being severed with a sharp knife or shears.
Sheets or newspapers may be spread upon
the floor of a chamber or garret, and the dif
ferent kinds laid separately upon them.
When the gathering is completed, and the
seeds have thoroughly dried, rub them out,
clean them, and put them iu bags of cloth
paper. Each parcel should bo distinctly
labeled with the name and tbe year when
gathered. Many vexatious mistakes will
thus be avoided next spring. All seeds

Espionage at Home and Abroad.
A statement has been going the cireuit of tbe
papers that tinoe Napoleon III has deolared
a general amnesty to all political offenders, tba
system of espionage is as rife as ever in France;
in short, that tbero is a policeman in almost
every house; and people here ore correspond
ingly shooked at this fact. Do they not know
that a system of espionage just as despotic and
perhaps more potent is exeroited at our own
doors, of which they never think of oomplain
ing? By means of the mercantile agencies the
spy-system is ramified throughout the whole
country, the most seoret actions of men, not
alone in mercantile matters, but in tho private
life of the merchant himself, aro recor del on
the books of those agencies, and open to tbe
inspection of whoever pays for tho privilege.
If a merobant in New York is about to sell a
bill of goods to a merchant in Sknnk Hollow,
Arkansas, he goes first to the agency, and says,
"I want to soli to John Smith, of Skunk Hol
low, Arkansas; what do you know about him?"
The dork who has obarge of that zone of ooun
try is called, he refers to his book, and the
private lifo of poor John Smith is laid open to
the eyes of the inquirer. He is told when and
to whom he was married; bow much money he
got with his wife; whether they live happily
together; bow many children be has; whether
he gives parties, drinks cbampagno or confines
himself to "red-oye," and when be played the
last game of whist or euchre. Now, how all
tho information oa these subjeots name to be
known in New York, except by meaus of the
most rigid espionage, is a problem. Yet the
facts are recorded here, and they are generally,
if not always, oorrect. Tho espionage ot the
mercantile agenoies can blast tho prospcots of
a merchant and ruin his charactor forever; tbe
.espionage of the French Emperor cannot do
more.
The information acquired by the foreign
system is communicated to tho government
alone, the information gathered by the agents
of tbe Bystem here can bo purchased by the
whole oountry for o price. Tbat is just the
N. Y. Herald.
The Ailanthus.
Tho Philadelphia Bulletin says of the
ailanthus: .......
The ailanthua grows with such extraordi
nary rapidity that it . is safe to say that it
gives xuoro wood in one-third of tho timo
than any tree generally used for fuel. And
though it grows so quickly, it is firm, hard,
strong and durable wood, nearly as valuable
as locust, and making excellent fuel. As for
soil and culturo, it grows in the moat deso
late sands of New Jersoy like a young hay
tree, a single wheelbarrow-load of loam to
each tree being all the capital which it re
quires to resist tho most untoward influences.
It endures heat and cold; it will grow where
a blackberry vine would think twice before
it would sprout once, and is never touched
by insects. How many of our readers own
thousands of acres, now worthless? Let them
plant ailanthus, which grows easily from the
seed, and wait only ten years. , . :'

How to Livb Loxo. More peoplo die an
nually from a want of sufficient brain-work
than from an excets of it. Uood health of
body and mind depends upon each having its
full share of exercise and work, and it would
seem from history that we can better afford
the body to be in a state of lassitude than al
low ths intellectual powers to lie dormant.
There may be a physical canse for this, from
the fact that much thought induoes a temper
ate lifo; but the exceptions to such a rule
would bo found so enormous as to show that
it was not tbe only secret. We aro rather in
clined to think that the most' general rulo and
the one capable of the broadost application by
which to attain to that great desideratum "a
green old ago" is to give the mind full play
to expand tbe powora of thought by reading
and observation, and to banish ths fear of
death, rosultine; from an exhausted "knowledge-box."
: We have shown to what ages the
old philosophers l.vod, and many modern ones
have been equally long-lived. Galileo and
lUeer Baoon both lived to seventy-eight,
Burton died at eighty-ono, Goethe and West
were eighty-two, Franklin and Hersehel lived
to eighty-four, and Newton and Voltalro did
not finish their labors until eighty-fivo. -The
astonomer If alley was eighty-six at his de
cease, and Sir Hons Snano was ninoty-thrt e.
Michel Angolo and Titian, tho great masters of
art, lived to ninety-six. These, surely, ore
iiistanccs enough to stimulate the individual
that wishes to live long, not to forget to culti
vate tbe intellectual faculties and imagination
while he is attending to the physical aids nf
exercise, cleanliness and temperance. We all
think too much of tbe body and neglect tbe
higher and diviner harts within us; wo cleanse

CritnKNXY of RrssiA. The gold and silver
of Russia is of tho purest qunlity, and their
coin is exquisitely cut and very chaste.
Their paper circulating medium is the issue
of tho National Bank nt St. Petersburg.
The rouble, which I believe ia the largest of
their silver pieces, is equal in value to seventy-five
cents of our money; it is divided
into parts by copecks, ono hundred of which
mnko a rouble, tho smallest silver coin being
nve copeoits. incir copper coin varies in
denomination from one quarter of a copeck
three-sixteenth of a cent to a five-oopaek
piece. While a copper to us is but a trille,
and the terra is otten used to express some
thing small, the comfort, if not the very ex
istence, of thousands of the poor laboring
classes in Russia depend upon an abundant
circulation of copper money; it is almost the
only money wnicn many receive in reward.
for their labor, and wero it to be withdrawn
from circulation in largo quantities, such
withdrawal would he followed by marked
evidences of want among the large class with
whom it is the principal u not the only me
dium of axchange.
Thkmendous Wiialk. Tho Halifax Journal
tells the following whale story:
A La Hnvre craft, on her return trip from
the Labrador, not very well fished, had the
good fortune to fall in with a large dead
whole drifting about, whieh the fishermen
ipeedilv made last to, nnd commenced strip
ping off and trying out the oil. When they
had filled every vessel availnblo on. board, a
second Nova Bcotiaman enmo up, turned to
and jrmdo a good harvest also. By this time
tho whole of ono Bide of the leviathan was
used up.. At this period a I'ren chman hove
in sight, and soon came alongside, but the
united efforts of the hands on borird tho three
vessels failed to capsize the carcase, nnd tho
remainder was finally disposed of by tho
original discoverer to Johnny Crapaud lor
the sum of 7, to do with the whale what he
best could. Tho Ln. Havre men left the
Frenchman, who had taken his prizo in tow.
