THE CHINESE NATIONAi." FLOWER.
lit the year 187S there were many allusions made
in the papers, ntout ji wonderful flower-from
Ghina. l,overs deflowers were getting' excited,
and were'Very nhx'ious'to procure a plant TheYir
g'inia City (Nev.) JLerritorial Enterprise speaks
thd"s, in an article about the flower : '.'The Chinese
plant them in-season to have tlietn bloom on their
Ne;w Year. The bulbs ate . all brought from
China. The Chinese sayvtlnit there is but one
place in China where they grow wild and natural
ly. The Chinese not only love the flower them
selves but arefalso pleased to see it growing1 in
the hoi(ses of their .employers.. They say it will
j only grow and blossom well for the good, and
have many superstitious npt:ona.in. regard' to it.
The Chinese laundrymen frequently present these
plants to their customers, and at every visit after,
they have seen tlieni properly planted stop to trim
Itlu-m and give them some, little .attention To for
bi"(f'the importation of these bulbs would probably
drive all the Chinamen o,ut of the country."
When the American Botanists saw this beauti
ful flower, they knew it to belong to the Narcis
sus family. Our, cut exhibits one of these flowers.
Mr. James Vick, (from whom we obtained the
cut,) in his FdwEri and Vegetable Gakden,
says of this 'flower : 'The Polyanthus Narcissus
is not qiiite hardy in this climate, unless planted
in a sandy'sdil, arid 'well covered before , winter,
and then Often Tails; farthet South it it does well.
For flowering in pots i'n the house the Polyanthus,
Narcissus is unsurpassed, and nothing can .be
more satisfactory for tfns purpose. It will also
fldwe'r well in glasses of water, like the Hyacinth,
and i t is desirable to grow a few in this way, yet
nothing looks so'" natural and nice, as a good
healthy plant-in a'Tieat pot of earth, and. no other
method leaves the bulb in a sound, 'healthy condi
tion for the'hext season.'"

n-A New Jersey letter to the "Examiner'' lays.the
blame.at the door of shiftless farmers for sb' many
farmers' sons leaving agriculture for 'other p""-suits.-
He says : '
"That the fan It of all .this lies wi0t the 'parents
themselves is plain, from the fact' that .'with the
thrifty farmers the number of sons who leave
home and forfeit Uiefr birth-right is small, indeed.
By the sole use; of an acre; of ground, a pairof
horses which theciAnJcairth"eir"own, of" perhaps
the entire cliarge ofHh'e'pqultry,.they become in- j
ter.estedj and -the farm is, made to. have .attractions I
for thein. Let good agricultural books andlpa'pers
be furnishedithemv and' their education be e.ncour- t
aged in eyery proper-way; the waste place's on - 1"
the farm be planted and made fruitful, and crook- :''L
ed fences be made straight. Let everything in M
and about the garden be done decently, and the ''
front yard be kept in order,and long before the sons f
of these farmers become of age th.ey;; will-slearn
.thatagriculture ,-is 'the most certain source of
strength, wealth, and independence.'1 -,v' v , ,
