FOR THE FARMER.
n f lie Soil.
A drought acts upon the nurture in
the earth as follows: During dry weather,
a continual evaporation takes place from
the surface soil, ulwve that supplied by
ram and dew, which creates a vacuum (so
lar as the water in the surface soil is con
cerned,) that is at once filled by water ari
sing from the subsoil extending deeper
and deeper as the drought continues and
the moisture is exhaled a circulation of
water in the earth the reverse of that which
takes place in wet weather. This progress
to the surface of the water ia the earth,
manifests itself strikingly iu the dryi.ig up
f springs and wells, and streams which
are supported by springs.
i-oc only is water thrs brought to the
surface of the earth, but also all that the
water holds in solution. There rrc salts
of lime and magnesia, of potash and soda,
or indeed whatever the subsoil or top strata
of the earth may contain.
The water on reaeliii-g the surface is
evaporated, but leaves behind its lime end
potash, its phosphates, silicates carbonates
and salts all indispensable, to the growth
of the vegetable products cf the farm.
Rain water, as it falls,, will dissolve but a
very small portion of some cf those sub
stances ; but when it sinks into the earth,
it then becomes kiro.igly imbued with
carbonic acid from the decomposition of
vegetable matter in the soil, and thus tie
quires the property cf readily dissolving
minerals on which before it could have
Several experiments tried by Prof. Ilig
gins, go to show tLis action of drought in
bringing mineral waters iroiu a depth to
the surface of the soil.
In one case he placed c solution of chlor
ide of barium in the bottom of . glass cyl
inder, and then filled it with dry soil
. After long esporure to the rays of the
sun, the surface of the soil was tested with
sulphuric acid, acd gave a copious precip
itate of sulphate of baryta. Chloride of
lime, sulphate of soda, and carbonate of
potash, were experimented upoa in like
manner, and upon the application of prop
pcr testa, the surface of the soil showed
thicr presence in large quantities, drawn
up by the rising of water from underneath,
as in case of draught.
The parched earth all vegetation
dwarfed and withered by the her.t seems
suffering under a curse, but it is only an
affliction for the present "a blessing in
disguise" for the f ulnre. "The early and
late rain," may produce at once abundant
crops, but dry weather is needed to bring
to the surface from the depth of the earth,
wherelse it would be forever unimpk-ed,
food for future harvests. It is Nature's
ordinance for keeping up the fertility of
tuc cultivated sou. Country Unit.
Miss L. Virginia Smith that was, Mrs
r rench that is, the crinoline editress of
th&fsoutJwM Homestead, gives the follow
ing excellent advice to farmers' daugh
ters. Although intended for rural dis
tricts, it is applicable to young ladies whose
fathers are not farmers :
"A young girl who happens to be the
daughter of a real, genuine farmer, should
consider herself particularly fortunate.
Her position is one which contains all the
elements which go to make up a lofty
character ; it is calculated to bring out all
the energies, to develop all the natural
gifts, and in time, with proper guides, to
make her one of the greatest women in
the world. If there be in life one situa
tion above all others, where the daughter
may grow up healthful, beautiful, useful,
graceful, intelligent, and pure, that situa
tion I believe to be as one of the house
hold band in the home of the honest and
independent farmer or planter. I would
say to young girls whose lines have fallen
in such "pleasant places," do not under
value your peculiar advantages. You are
the ''highly favored among women." The
circumstauces in which you are placed are
such as are best calculated to develop your
powers in a threefold form, physically,
mentally, and morally.
I would have you value your advanta
ges, improve every one of them to the
utmost, and place a proper estimate upon
yourselves. You have every opportunity
to make yourselves noble, beautiful, intel
lectual, and useful women ; do this, then,
and each in her own person "assert the
dignity of labor." Consult your parents,
and form for yourself a purpose in life.
.They place before your brother some aim,
some standard, some goal which his exer-
tions are to reach, why not then give you
"something to live for" also ? Why sho'd
you be the only cypher in the family ?
When you have "finished" school, don't
for one moment believe that you are "ed
ucated.". Don't "dress up in your six
flounces," etc., and sit down on the parlor
.sofa, waiting for that young clerk at
'Ketchum & Cheatum's,' to "call round."
No ; let him show off his laces, embroid
eries, etc., etc., and wear them too, for all
you care about it. Remember that "let
others do as they will, as for you," you
-have something ehe to do than to sit down
fold yourwhite hands, and wait to be
You have an influence in society to
wield, duty as a daughter, and perhaps as
a sister, to perform, and then you must
not forget yourself, for you have a mind
to be cultivated, health to be guarded, a
heart to be educated, and an immortal
soul to be saved. Is not this a great deal
of work ? Ws, trust me, if you only go
about it "with a will," jrou will find every
moment employed, and every day too short
for the accomplishment of all your duties.
You know how much you can assist mam
ma in all her varied departments of do
mestic economy, the dairy, the poultry
jard, the store-room,- the sewing basket,
the garden, the shrubbery, and twenty
other things ver which her watchful eye
presides ; but while doing all you can for
her, please don't neglect papa. Now I
see you smile incredulously, saying to your
nice little self, "Why, what in the world
could I do for papa V O, a great deal, if
you will assume the responsibility. Be
sides preparing some refreshing delicacy
wheu he comes in, as he- expresses it,
"hungry as a hawk," or singing him a
sweet song when his mind is over-tasked,
you can talk with him, and learn of him
about his fields, his stocks, or his build
ings; you can read to him his agricultu
ral books and papers, (for there is a good
deal of "head work in farming,) and thus
improve your own mind while adding to
his knowledge. Suppose, then, that some
day he is called off on important business,
though it is in the hurry of "harvesting;"
he quietly takes his seat in the cars, and
"goes ou his way rejoicing." "Ah !
squire, glad to see you ; but how in the
world did you get up to town f this is
your busiest season, is it not ?" The old
man smiles ; a deep light flashes in his
blue gray eyes is it pride, or love ! as
he quietly replies : "Yes, sir, it is, but my
Mary will attend to that." O I wouldn't
you "glory" in that ? I would.
I c:.n see no necessity in the world for
your troubling yourself about marriage,
but if Harry Thornton, thrt intelligent,
handsomeaod successful voimr man will
keep on cjng to consult your papa about
this or tmit, always contriving, by the
tiy, to terminate his consultation with a
a riae, or a tetc-a-ute witn papa s
, why then you needn t be surpn
sed, on some fine evening, to hear yourself
"respectfully solicited to become 31rs.
Harry Thornton. Then I wish you to re
memlier that marriage is only a question
f -i r.t . -.
01 win wun you, not a necessity; your
good parents are not at all anxious to get
rid of such a sweet, sensible, brave, and
beautiful child: and you, if you don't
think you have a "call" to become a wife,
have been too well educated to fear the
name of "old maid." But if you love
Harry, and your will is won, (which for
ins sake, poor lellow, 1 trust is the case. )
then, like an honest, dear little girl as -ou
are, uavinsr lar too iuucu respect lour your
self to "flirt," say "yes" immediately, and
