There wag one au who did not forget,

Persis did not care very much what
Ephraim remembered or what he forgot.
He was a " worthy young man ;" and
she said, in her girlish intolerance,
"If there's one thing stupider than
another it is your worthy
young man!" He taught school
and Etudiwd law, and I am not sure but he
"carried on" a large farm at the same
time; but when you tried to draw him
out in general conversation it was like
drawing a sound tooth. He was the most
industrious of men, and the kindest of
sons to a widowed mother; but then his
eyes were fea green under rugged cliffs of
eye-crows, bis hands were horny, and all
ius ang:es as acute as a lawyer s wits.
Seeing Miss Persis alone in the window

turned the conversation to "old times,"
and the well remembered incidents of
that too happy year, Ephraim would have
been himself in a moment. Would he
ever forget the afternoons on the
"basin," and the efforts he made
to teach her how to skate, having first
modeled for the shoemaker a pair of little
skates which were mismated to fit her un
equal feet? How carefully he had guided
her over the ice! He kept the precious
red comforter still, the "life-preserver"
she had called it, by which she had
clung to him in her efforts; to stand up
right. In those old times Persis liked him ; he
was sure she did. She had sat in the
kitchen while he plodded at his Latin

should soften her harsh judgments, she

Mr. Warner offered a correction. " Man

with a wise smile ; for he never understood

Zelie had the advantage of him there.
" He is a tremendous worker, that Zelie ;

Persis was by . any means forward or
unmaidenly; but she had not yet learned
the woman's lesson of concealing her
emotions. Perhaps if there had been a
trifle more of the blindness ef lore

not have seen to read so clearly. He
sincerely admired Persis; be thought he
loved her, or that he should lore her if he

A commonplace lore-scene. Another
was going on under the same roof that
very evening, and not a pin's choice be
tween the two ; but you may be sure it
was all as fresh and glorious to Persis as
if the world had Just been created, and she
and Stanley were alone in it. The little
hand which lay in his waa not withdrawn,
nor was there the faintest sign of indif
ference in the eyes bent timidly on the
floor. It al ended in the most orthodox
manner ; they left the party betrothed.
As Persis passed Ephraim on the stair

night," and she beamed down upon him
so graciously that he walked home on
a bed of roses, and never really came
to his senses till Mrs. Blake dropped in to

Even Persis herself, "walking on

trampling oyer a heart. The happy young
creature saw in life but one shadow, and
that was the shadow of her crutch. It
mignt now be supposed to grow less, but,
on the contrary, it rather increased.
"Oh, mother," she sighed ne day,

The old ready flush flickered on Per
sia' cheek, but no smile came with it She
shuddered and drew away. Something
in her lover's tone hurt her. She had
been half conscious of the same thing
before; but to-night as if she had
wakened to it for the first time, it irave her
a thrill of pain.
"4 am doing it for Stanley," thought
she, as her head sought the pillow. '
But the magic had somehow rone out
of the words. What if she were doing it
for Stanley Was that going to take away
the terror and the agony? Was there
length and breadth and depth enough in
his love to atone for all this ? How could
he let her suffer so? Ah, there was the
sting. Not that he had persuaded or even
advised her; but then he certainly had
not opposed the undertaking. He had lt
ner see clearly that he should be gratified
if she had the fortitude to bear it And
why? Because then he could claim a
"graceful bride." Not a "wounded
dove." Not a woman who faltered La her
gait but one who walked among other
women as their peer.
And this was the way he loved her ! The
man for whom she was ready to sacrifice
so much! .Persis could not sleep.

blacken the whole future with the abomi

parlor, "I am going home to-day "
"Going home!" repeated be, in aston

blue eyes which certainly were not dimmed
by want of sleep.
" Tee," said Persis, with sad emphasis.
"I have spent the whole night in think

" My sweet Persia, and you have never
so much as hinted at this before. Tou

The tone was kind, but there was Just
enough patronage in it to irritate Persia,
and confirm her in her new resolve.
" My nerves are as firm as steel. Oh,

fearful calmness raye way. and she

He never doubted she was ween in at

" If there were only something I could

said poor Persis, stifling the sudden wish
to confide in him. At that moment their

If you have balky horses it is your own
fault and not the horses , for if tney do
not pull true there ia some cause for it
and if yon remove the cause the effect
will cease. When your horse balks he is
excited and does not know what to do.
When he gets a little excited, stop him for
five or ten minutes ; let him become calm,
and as soon as he is over his excitement
he will, in nine cases out of ten, pull -at
the word. Whipping and slashing
and swearing only make the matter
worse. Alter you have rentled him
while, and his excitement has cooled,
take him by the bits; turn him each
way a few minutes, as far as you can;
gentle him a little ; unrein him ; then step
before tbe balky horse, and let the other
start first; then you can take them any
where you wish. A balky horse is always
hirh-apirited and starts quick : half the
poll is 4m beiSre'the other horse starts
by standing before him the other starts
first By close applicatfon to this rule
you can mak any horse pull. If a horse
has been badly spoiled, you should first
hitch him to an empty wagon and let him
draw it around for awhile on level ground i
then put on a little load and increase

rustic finish, in which were grouped a
geranium or two, a few starting jonquils

fairy-like hanging of green.

Prepsrlag tbe Soil for Apple Trees
Wheat en Clover Ground.
PnoFkseon Voklcxxr, in a valuable
report recently published in the Journal
Royal JgrietUtural Society, England, ar
rives at the following conclusions :
L A good crop of clover removes from
the soil more potash, phosphoric acid,
lime, and other matter which enter Into
the ashes of our cultivated crops, than any
other crop usually grown in this country.
3. There is folly three times as much
nitrogen in a crop of clover as In the av
erage produce of the grain and straw of
wheat per acre.
8. Notwithstanding the large amount of
nitrogenous matter, and of ash constitu
ents or plants, in the produce of an acre,
clover is an excellent preparatory crop for
4. During the growth of clover, a large
amount of nitrogenous matter accumulates
5. This accumulation, which is greatest
la the surface soil, is due to decaying
kayes dropped during the growth of clover,
and f an abundance of roots, containing,
Frw soils in their natural state are in a
suitable condition for the reception oi
apple-trees. New land is certainly far
preferable to that which Is old and par'
tially or wholly worn out, but neither are
in a proper condition for an orchard, and
some thorough system oi preparation
should be applied to them before being
used for fruit-treek The method of pre
paring soils snouid oe varied according to
their nature, if naturally deep and rich,
then a good, den plowing is all that will
be absolutely necessary. But those per
sons who are about planting a young or
chard should not forget that years of time
may be gained by bestowing a little extra
care at the start, and that trees in a thor
oughly prepared soil will be as far ad
vanced in live yenra as tbose which re
ceive but ordinary care will be in ten.
All soils, whether new or old, rich or
poor, light or heavy, should be worked
deep, for herein lies the fundamental prin
ciple of all good and successful gardening ;
and good farming and orcharding is but
gardening extended. It Ia not always nec
essary or advisable to invert the soil to a
great depth, and thereby throw the poor
subsoil on the surface, but to loosen up the
soil to a depth of one foot or more U bene
ficial to all crops, no matter how small or
There are sous wnicn ao not require
deepening, but they are the exceptions
and not the rule ; consequently, we leave
them out of the list under consideration
at this time. We will suppose, for In
stance, that a farmer wishes to plant an
apple orchard this spring upon soil that is
rich enough for that purpose, without Ap
ing any fertilizing materials whatever ;
and, further, we will suppose that he
knows enough about apple-trees not to
nlant them in a swamo. or in around ao
stony that it cannot be cultivated ; neither
will we expect him to turn over an old sod
that haa not been plowed for years, and
use such land for an orchard until the
tough rooU of weeds and grass have be
come, at least, partially decomposed. But
we expect that our farmer will plant the
trees in the best soil on his farm, pro
vided it is favorably situated and fat natur
ally dry and good.
The nrst tiling to oe aeaaea is tne ais-
tance apart at which the trees are to be
planted whether twenty-five, thirty, or
forty feet ; the second number will afford
room enough for varieties of moderate
growth, but where the land ia very rich
and not too expensive, more space may

Having experimented on several kinds
of land, from a firm clay to a light blow
ing sand, I prefer as the most favorable
locat'on for blackberries a light, moist
sandy loam, well underdrained, if water
would otherw se stand near the surface.
Formerly we thourht that low. rich land
would be best judging from the large
growth of briars along the ditches and
swampy pla? Accordingly one of mr .
auiMM, uMUftMH sola m ww, m.
rich land that had produced heavy crops
of corn and timothy, expecting to get a
corresponding one of blackberry ; but in
this he was disappointed, except in growth
of canes, which were very large and
strong, but not well ripened before winter
set in, and consequently were greatly in
juria, and sometimes entirely killed be
fore spring, yielding but little or no fruit ;
while blackberries planted on thin higher
land, not worth near so much for agricul
tural purposes, producing small canes with
buds well developed and the wood ma
tured before the approach of winter, would
yield heavy crops of fine fruit. In walk
ing through my patch when loaded with
berries, he remarked that he could not
understand why those small bushes had so
much more fruit en them than his large
ones. I attributed it to the fact that the
canes and fruitbuds were better ripened
the fall previous, and had stood the cold of
winter with less injury.
Another farmer near by having about
forty acres devoted to the culture of black
berries, purchased a tract of light sandy
land, at $13 per acre, and planted it with
them. But desiring to have a model
patch, he purchased a few acres of the
richest and the best land for ordinary ag
ricultural purposes in the vicinity, at 3u0
per acre, and planted it witn tne same
kind of blackberries, giving the best trest
ment and special attention, which pro
duced an enormous growth of canes ; but
which Sever yielded as much fruit per
acre as the $13 land. He remarked to me,
while looking at them, that 'We have
learned something since commencing this
business ; to begin now, with the knowl
edge we have, the error of planting our
best land with blackberries might be
The land should be plowed and har
rowed smooth; then open furrows in the
fall at a distance of eight feet apart ; and
if muck can be had conveniently, it ia
valuable to spread along them during;
winter, leaving it exposed to the action of
the frost. Early in the spring set the
planU about four feet apart on the muck,
which require 1,360 planU to an acre.
The intervening space, while the planU
are small, need not be lost, but corn, po
tatoes or other vegetables may be grown
midway between the rows for the first
year or two. The rooU will mostly follow
along the row to feed on the muck, and
grow more vigorously than lateral or side
shoots. Hence the strongest and
best planU wEl come up nearly
where they are wanted to produce
fruit the following year. But they should
not be left to stand along the rows cloaex
together than an average of oue plant to
a foot in length in the rows. The planta
tion should be gone over several times
during the summer, and the tops of the
Cig canes, as they appear above the
ing bushes, should be shortened in,
so ss to keep them at a uniform height of
about three to five feet, according to the
strength of the soil This will induce the
side branches to grow vigorously and de
velop fruit buda near the ground, and, in
terlocking with each other, the bushes
will support themselves, and thus avoid
the necessity of stakes and wires to pre
vent high winds from injuring the tender
canes. The side branches should be short
ened in the following winter or spring to
apyramiriiral form, somewhat resembling
a dwarf pear tree when properly trimmed.
r'lanU thus properly treated will yield
more fruit, and of better quality, than if
left to grow tall and slender, aa by nature
they are inclined to do.
To Insure good crops requires close at
tention ; the canes should be kept thin
and well headed back ; and on poor land
an occasional dressing of manure, muck,
or fertilizers of some kind, adds to the
quantity and quality of the fruit. There
u no likelihood of the market beinr over
stocked with the fruit, aa it pays well to
make it into wine. Three quarts of black
berries and three pounds of sugar, with
the addition of a little water, will make a
gallon of wine, highly ncommended for
its medicinal properties, worth $3 per
gallon, while new; and iu value in-
at with are. All the poorer berries.
those that are too ripe to ship to market,
may be properly converted into wine at
home ; and only the finest and most per
fect fruit sent to market, which will al
ways command a fair price.
It is somewhat remarkable that all the
valuable varieties in cultivation have been
found growing wild, and were selected
and saved on account ot their supposed
merit over others, and from the thousands
of aeedlinrs raised, none have wet nminl
