One Species of Insanity.
BY FANNY FERN.
Did y o i ever see a woman that was
possessec bythehoose-cleaning fiend?
Not periodically, bat at all times.
Who would gp about drawing her
linger over every lounge and table and
ebair, sneering into cracks and Gran
nies for crooked pins and lint ; holding
tumblers op to the light lor finger
marks ; in short so utterly absorbed
in the pursuit ot dirt that every other
pursuit was as nothing in comparison.
Now, being New England born, I
know what neatness is, and value it as
. only a New Englander can ; but when
U takes such shape as this, and robs
life of all its charms, I turn toy back
upon it with righteous disgust. Who
thanks these zealons furies for their
self-imposed labors? Certainly not
their husbands, who flee into remote
corners from dustpans and dust
brushes and weary of the recitals of
their prowess day byjday. Certainly
not their children, who have no place
to stow away their little sacred prop
erty in the shape of bright bits ot silk
or paper, or broken cups; which ' are
dear and precious to them, and should
always beheld in respect within prop
er innocent limits.
Oh, ye careful and troubled Mar
thas of the household, stop and take
breath. Place a flower on the mantel.
that you, and your household, may
have some in their lives. ; While you
stop to rest. read. So shall the cob
webs be brushed from your neglected
brain, and you shall learn that some
thing else besides cleanliness is neces
sary to make home really home, for
those dependent on your care.
Throw your broom out of doors;
take yonr children by the hand, and
let the fresh wind touch your wrinkled
forehead. If your house is wound up
to such an immaculate pitch of clean
liness, it can run on a few hours with
out your care. Laugh and talk with
them, or, better still, listen to their
foolish-wise talk. Bring home a bit
of gingerbread for each of them, and
play some simple game with them.
Put on the freshest dress you have,
and ask your husband, when becomes
in, if he recognises his wife. .
"I wish my mother looked as piet
ty as you, said a little girl, one day,
to a neighbor. ;
"But your mamma is much prettier
than I,' replied the neighbor. The
truth was that the child's mother was
always in a wrapper, unless company
was expected. The rest of the time
she was under the dominion of the
house-cleaning fiend, and the children
fled from such a joyless, utilitarian
home, where no flower of beauty
eould ever get time to take root and
blossom. ' WJ" i
There is little need to misinterpret
my meaning. Many a ruined life has
come of a joyless home. Your children
take to the sunlight as naturally
as do the flowers. Shut it out of your
houses, and they will go abroad
search of it, you may be sure of that.
Isn't this worth thinking about, O
mothers? careful and troubled about
many things, and yet so blind to your
first and greatest duty !
The Fall Wheat Crop.
Considerable anxiety exists regard
ing the wheat product over a large ex
tent of country. Whoever has read
our "Record ot the Season'' depart
ment must have been struck with the
great number of unfavorable reports,
not only from many counties in this
State, but from nearly all the States
of the Northwest. In some localities
a good field of wheat is hardly to
found, in others only the drilled fields
give promise of a fair crop, while in
few the whole breadth is favorably
reported. . It is uot nnfiequently the
ease, we are aware, that a crop turts
out much better than people expected,
but we think we are safe in saying,
irom all reports we get, that there will
be a great falling off in the fall wheat
crop of the Northwest, and even
far south as Missouri. Oar latest for
eign advices are to the effect that,
Russia excepted, the old stock
wheat is pretty well exhausted, while
the season for spring grains abroad
unfavorable, though hardly as late
with us. From California, however,
comes more favorable news. A great
er breadth was sown than ever be
fore, while its appearance is excellent.
It is estimated that the increase
the quantity for export will be from
six to ten millions of bushels. It this
proves to be the case it will largely
make of for the deficit elsewhere.
Nevertheless we look for a firm wheat
market throughout the year and until
the harvest of 1873 at least, unless
this country should be so onforinnate
as to become involved in a war Vith
Great Britain, an event, however, that
seems most improbable at the present
time. Prmirie Farmer
Cheap Cement of Brick-dust.
Mr. F. B. Miles informs the Jour
nal of the Franklin Institute that
Spanish engineers successfully use ordinary
brick-dost, made from hard
burned, finely pulverized bricks, and
and mixed with common lime and
aand, as a substitute for hydraulic ce
ment. The proportions used in gen
eral practice are one of brisk dast.one
if lime, and two of stone, mixed dry
and tempered in the usual way. Mr
Miles has tested the cement during
six years' experience, and found
superior to the best Bosendale. Dr.
Wahl, in a note to the above comma
nidation, quotes the opinion of Mr.
Trautwine that the addition ot even
as little as one tenth as much brick
dust as sand to our ordinary mortars,
would prevent the ditintregation so
generally visible ia the mortars used
Trapping the Squash-bug.
A correspondent of the better
Rural says : "Last season I found
the 'Ransom Curculio-trap' of more
service in catching the Blinking squash
bug than the little Turk. I place bits
of shingles or boards near the hill ot
plasta, so that the bugs can crawl un
der them, as they will do every cool
night. On turning over these covers
early in tbtyaorning the bug can be
asily crushed. The same trap is also
good in the ease ot the etrijied bug
and various other inserts that letire

[From the Prairie Farmer.]
It is often easier and always safer to
ask hard questions than to answer
them. What should be and what is
likely to be the ruling price on the
domestic wool clip of 1 8 , 2 ? It would
relieve us very greatly if some reader
of The Farmer wouW give us a correct
reply to that now-a day much-asked
question. We shall not attempt to
fix the figures at this time, but merely
to call attention to some of the ele
ments involved in the calculation.
1 . There is an admitted scarcity in
any grades ot wool, the world over.
The woolen machinery now in exist
ence cannot be kept employed for the
next twelve mouths on the wool alone
which will fiod its way to the market
Besides the demands of the human
family for woolen fabrics during the
same time will, probably,' be in excess
of any possible supply. (
2. This condition of things must
have for a first result to bring rcanu
facturers into lively '". competition for
tne raw material ana, mence io estsu
lish the price at as high a figure as the
prospective market for woolen fabrics
may seem to warant.
3. It being now certain that w ool
will be scarce and dear, the energies
and means and skill of manufacturers
are already turned upon the question
of substitutes for the pure fibre. Shod
dy and cotton are receiving a full share
of attention, and, as appearances now
indicate will go largely into the com
position, ot fabrics manufactured by
many mills which heretofore used only
wool- As we write, there is scarcely
a three days' supply ot wool in the
markets of Boston, New York and
Philadelphia 'for" the New' England
woolen mills alone; yet they are most.
ly running, and uot many of their
spindles will stop for lack of "material.
They are simply adapting their policy
to the necessities ot the case, and if
wool were five dollars per pound, they
would still continue to throw off the
usual number of yards of cloth every
twenty-four hours, using cheaper sub
stitutes in order to be able to place
their fabrics upon the market! at sale
able rates. - " - -.---
While, then, it seems almost cer
tain that the clip of 1872 will find
sale at very high figures and that pure
woclen goods will, during the year,
be correspondingly high, yet there
little reason to apprehend a famine or
a panic in either. . All of . us- except
those who are tl e hippy possessors
large flocks of sheep, may have to
wear shoddy or "hod Jen-gny an" a'
that,' tor the coming two or three
years; but it is some consolation to
know that our temporary 1om h the
country s permanent cam. 1 he wool
industry is receiving a deserved en
couragement, and is at last emerging
from the difficulty and almost dexpair
which has surrounded that all import
ant agricultural interest for the past

Never Plow Wet Soil.
We have often urged the attention
of the farmers to this subject as one of
great importance. 'Any traveler
among onr farming- districts can see
large tracts ot land that have been wet
and unfit to be worked, by observing
large, heavy clods of earth, which in
the hot season, become like a heated
brick, burning all the roots of gram
or products near it. Besides the evil,
no seed can vegetate and grow upon
soil thus cultivated, nor can that soil
give bsck as much nutriment as if
plowed when in a light condition and
a warm- aiid sunny day, when light
aud warmth can penetrate into the
soil, and thus greatly benefit it.
We are sure that farmers bate from
ten to forty per cent, ot their crop by
ieattention to this matter.' I! a little
care at the lime of plowing, by exam
ining the soil and selecting good sun
ny days, the soil will send up its voice
in a halo ot dew drop clomls that will
wreathe the plowman with hj proval

They have beeu examined with great
curiosity by American manufacturers,

Many farmers exhibit a disposition
to shift from one branch of farming to
another, which seldom results iu any
thing save "vanity and vexation of
spirit,'' loss of time and loss of mon
ey. This history of the rise and tall
of azncultural manias, would form a
bulky and not uninstructive volume
A few years ago, wool commanded a
high price. Farmers all 1 uthed into
the sheep business, following in that
respect the example of -the theep
themselves, who always jump a fer.ee
collectively, or a near it as pot-si lie
In time, the price of wool declined
and then the sheep were very sud
deuly converted into 1uu1t.11, and
there seemed to be a ties" re 011 the
part of firiuerx to exterminate sheep
from the face ot the earth. . Then
things took another turu. and woo
rose again, and sheep weie in active
demand, with a short supply. It will
be readily eeeu, that if some prudent,
sensible fanner had preceived the
"golden-meat)," and had kept a fair
stock ot'theep right along through
evil and good report, he would, on
the whole, have made money. The
successful-manias first for buying and
then for killing sheep, is not the only
exairple ot folly we could menton. In
some sections of the country the hop
fever brraks out every few years, and
every other agriculturist pursuit in
that particular section is abandoned
or neglected for hop raising. There
then comes a ' back set." and the cur
ses oflhehop raisers are both loud
and deep. Just now, in Kansas, there
is a disposition t abandon the cattle
and hog businewt, because for this one
eason tbe prioea are unnauall. low.
Man; farmers will probably sell out
almost to the last hoof and horn.
Such farmers will, insula of another
year or two, most certainly regret the
step. This is as certain as it is that
the people.are not going t stop 'St
ing pork and beef.
Our theory Is that year by year it
always pays to raise all the leading
products ot the farm. The farmer who
sticks to his business for twenty years
together, raising corn, cattle, sheep
and hogs, will make more than he
looses. The good years will more
than balance tho bad ones. Fir ming
is not like speculative business, and
sudden fortunes are not made in it,
and the sooner farmers realize this tho
belter. It has been said that the
clock that stands still is right twice iu
twenty-four hours, while another may
be going all the time and be peretu
ally wrong.- We think farmers can
make the necessary . application.

Sewerage System in Milan.
The sewerage system adopted in
Milan, is recommended by Mr. Child,
of Ox'ord, as being suitable for small
towns and country villages. Its es
sential feature is the drainage of the
houses into water-tight cess-pools,
which are emptied frequently, effici
ently, and quite inoffensively , by
means of a barrel-cart, previously ex
hausted of air, and a hose. The tur
ret cart then conveys the sewage to
depot at a convenient distance, where
all that is salablo is sold to farmers,
and the rest is manufactured into
kind of dry artificial guano. Many
small towns and villages lie on dead
flats.or at the bntora of deep valleys,
where ordinary iewtrae works could
not be establish without ac expensive
provision for raising the sewage in
order to render it available for irriga
tion. In such places the Milanese
system might be carried out with ease,
and at comparatively small outlay. A
number of cess-jK ils must be render
ed water tight a process not very
expensive. One cesspool would serve
for several cottages, and frequeut
emptying vould be better than large
sized inclosures. Two .barrel carts
must be procured, and these, with
small steam engine at the depot to
work the air-pump, would, together
with about three men and two horses,
form the whole of the apparatus re
quired for testing the system on
small but sufficient scale. On the day
on which Mr. Child visited the depot
near Milan, farmers carts were wait
ing there, literally in scores, to obtain
their supply of it ; and he feels sure
that, landed proprietor or farmers
were to give this system a trial in this
country, they wou'd find it woith
Alsike or Alsyke Clover.
- This clovt r, which has attracted so
much attention of late, especially as
honey producing plant, we think
ought to be more generally experi
mented with. The English Iarm$r,t
Diarty for 1872 thus feats of its his
tory and qualities :
Alsyke, or Perennial Hybrid clo
ver, which takes its name from Alsyke
district, near Stockholm, was first in
trod need into Sweden Within the
last century, vast improvements inag
ricilture have enabled this valuable
clover to be . brought to great perfec
feet ion, and it is now held in great
estimation by the Swedish farmers
and extensively cultivated by the lead
ing agriculturists of Great Britain and
Ireland. The root is fibrous, and the
heads globular. The plant bears a
greater resemblance to the white than
the red clover, and may be described
as the giant white clover, with flesh
colored heads. The advantages it
possesses over every other variety of
clover are : Its perennial, or perma
nent character, Us greatest hardiness,
(for no Winter will kill it) its capa
bility alike of resisting the extrtmes
ot drouth and wet, tbe much greater
weight of herbage it produces dm ing
the season, and the certainty of
plant when other varieties fail from
the land having become clover-sick.
Its powersof production are inexhaust
ible, as proved by the wonderfully
curious toimation ot tho plant' from
the single crown of which innumera
ble heads are continually being pro
duced all through the season, and
tillering out laterally over the ground.
The hardy nature of the plant is
proved by the fact of its thriving by
transplanting. A single plant may be
taken up an 1 divided into teu or more
parts, the fibrous roots just cropped,
and each part will produce a luxuriant
plant; so that no farmer need here
after have a patchy piece ot clover.

persist in not hatching ; but rotting
under biddy's gentle pressure, or some

overtook every setting of eggs ;' and
to add to the sum of our woe strange
diseases afflicted our best birds, seldom

something wrong, on my part, I rung

It Ls remarkable that more attention
is not given to the subject ot covering
manure lrom the weathtr, and especi
ally Irom too much rain. Those who
have given the matter particular at
tention have fouud that manure
protected is worth double that which
is left out in the open air. ' Two loads
for one is a profit few tanners can af
ford to lose. There is no question
which so vitally concerns the former
as this one ot manure. Much that
does has reference to it. Straw is not
to be sold, because it makes manure.
Stock is fed through the Winter for
the express purpose ot manure mak
ing Articles which scarcely pay
send to market, are nevertheless taken
to the cjty iu order that manure may
be brought back as a return load
and yet the whole of the manure
made, remains all the season exposed
to the sun, winJ, and ram, until it
diminished in value to so great
extent as it is. The trouble is that
few really believe that exposed ma
nures undergo this loss. Bu( the mat

el as fanners who did not themselves
believe it, until by actual experiment
they found out its. truth. ..
In arranging tarm building it will
pay well to look as much to the pre
nervation of the manure as of the' hay
or grain ; and those who have their
buildings already finished without
these manorial arrangements will find
that $25 or 50 spent on boards for

The Sunflower as a Disinfectant
The Mditar WochenblaU has pub
lished an article by Dr. Valentine,
Frankfort, who gives many facts
6how that the sunflower has the prop
erty of purifying air laden with marsh
miasm, absorbing a great quantity
moist and noxious gases, aud inhaling
an ozuiidd oxygen. The plant, it
said.has proved itself particularly use
ful in this respect in the neighborhoods
ot Washington an J Pliila ls'phU
where its cultivation hss rendered
whole quarters healthy and fever tree,
which had previously been unhabita
ble by the prevalence of fever.
Dutchman, Von A Irttein, whose prop
erty was situated ou some flooded land
on the bank of the Scheldt, has plant

plots, thirty or forty yards from his
house, with the effect of ao much iin
proving the air that for ten years
one on bis property bad been attacked
w ith miasmatio fever, which continued
to prevail on neighboring properties
where similar precautions were not
taken. Besides this, as the French
Sanitary Commission lately pointed
out, the sunflower is a most useful
plant. It yields about forty ier cent
ot good oil, the leaves furnish an ex
cellent fodder, and the stem, being rich
in saltpetre and potash, makes good

It affords me much pleasure to give yon these few lines a a very sincere testimonial
for Uie Piano Fortes of your manulacMre. We have now used l)iePATBsr Aaros PlsRoa"
In our Conservatories for a year, aud have bad a (alronporlunity of testing their durability
dnrinc that time. The Planus have been played upon almost constantly, from morning
till night, aud a piano must Indeed be a good one when It will bear such eonatant une with,
out showing signs of defection. As for remaining iu tune.lt outrivals any . Piano knows
The neculiar sweetness of tone in the treble (as comDared to other Pianos with the or
dinary metal aurafiearraiigmeut) is so striking that I have had pupHs remark, while taking
their ktssous. that although thev had al home what they supposed to be one of the best make
ef Puinnfl, still the treble was very wirey-toued compared wlih the "Arlon."
i What makes them still more desirable is their uniform volume of lone, which enables
an arrest to perform a composition iu ltstrue character.
in total, I canconsclentlnnsly endorse all that Is claimed by the Arlon Piano Forte
Company for their superb iustrumon,M, as I consider thero superior to any other make.
Congratulating you uKii the great succesa you have outaiucd In the manufaetnre of so
purlnrt an Instrument. 1 remain yours, Very truly, 1IKNHY Hi Hit OD KB. Director.
