You kissed me; my head
Dropped low on jour breast,
W . With a feeling of shelter
3 And Infinite rest;
J While the holy emotion
I My tongue dared not speak,
i Flushed up like a Maine,
I From my heart to my cheek.
3 Your arms held me fast;
OhI your arms were so bold;
Heart beat against heart
f In their passionate hold.
a Your glances seemed drawing
w My soul through my eyes,
j As the sun through the mist
A From the sea to the skies.
m " And your lips clung to mine,
I j Till 1 prayed In my bliss
j They might never unclasp
4 1 From that rapturous kiss.
You kissed me; my heart
And my breath, and my will, x
In dllarious joy.
For a moment stood still.
Life had for me then
No temptations, no charms;
No vista of pleasure
Outside or your arms;
And were I this instant
An angel possessed
Of tho glory and peace
That are given the blest,
I would fling my white robes
And tear from my forehead
It's beautiful crown,
To nestlo once more
In that haven of rest
With your lips upon mine
And my'hcad on your breast.
You kissed me; my soul
In a bliss so divine,
. j. Reeled and swooned like a foolish man
- Drunken with wine;
R And I thought 'twere delicious
To die then, if death
I &' Would come while my mouth
' ' Was yet moist with your breath;
It 'Twcre delicious to die,
At. ,(,, , If my heart might grow cold , --,.,
i . Willie your arms wrapt me round
In that passionate fold
hi And these are tho questions
1)9 I ask day and night:
k I tm Must my life taste but once
rl "' Sucli exquisite delight?
IS 3 Would you care If your breast
fiB Were my shelter as then?
1 i And if you were hero
1 2 Would you kiss me again?

Harvesting Rica In Japan.
?rof. C. C. GeorgOBon: "Tho harvest
season begins In tho latter part of Oc
tober or the beginning of November.
The grain la then cut by hand with
sickles, tied In bundles, and carried
to the border, where It is set up to
dry. When partially dry It Is carried
to tho farmhouse, where tho drying
la completed and where the thrashing
takes place. This operation consists
of tearing the grains from the straw
on an 1 comb, and afterward the
grain Is spread on mats and beaten
with flails to complete the separation.
The next step Is to hull the grain. This
Is done by hand on a primitive quern.
Tho millstones are made of tough clay,
Into which Is Imbedded strips of bam
boo on edge, In imitation of the cut
ting ridges of a millstone, clay and
bamboo strips being packed in a shal
low tub. Two of these Improvised
millstones work together, the upper
one being turned by hand. The edges
of the bamboo, thus grind against each
other nnd offer sufficient friction to
remove tho hulls from the kernel. Af
ter winnowing, either by hand or by a
modern fanning mill, the rice Is now
ready for market. For the purpose of
marketing, sacks are made of mats ot
rice straw, by first sewing a mat into
a cylinder and then securing a round
Ud at either end. Each sack, or "ta
wara," as it Is called, holds about one
and a half bushels. Thus prepared,
the small fc mer sells his surplus to
the dealer In the city; and If one
travels In the country In early winter
he Is sure to meet a succession ot
handcarts loaded with rice, which the
owners aro pulling to market
While we cannot follow the methods
of culture practiced by the Japahese,
we do find that they have developed
numerous varieties of rice, many of
which are better than varieties native
to this country. The Secretary of Ag
riculture Is aware of the excellent
quality of many of the Japanese va
rieties, and he has of late years im
ported considerable quantities of the
best kinds, with a view to Introduce
them In the rice-growing districts of
our own south.
Illinois Alfalfa Fields.
Last year several farmers in Illi
nois raised crops of alfalfa. This had
been planted the year before and had
becomo so well-established by last year
that two and three crops were cut
from some fields. The result has been
an awakening In the matter of grow
ing alfalfa In Illinois. We hear that
a good many lrmers have gone into
the raising of alfalfa as a result ot
the success made last year. The
Farmers' Review would like to hear
from Its readers in localities where
large yields were realized last year,
as to the outlook and conditions tills
year, 'i this year proves to bo a good
year for the alfalfa fields In Illinois
that had largo crops last year it will
havo broken tho rule that hitherto
has held good, namely, that In Illi
nois tho second year is about the only
year that gives a good crop of alfalfa.
On this hinges tho question of the
valuo of alfalfa for this section of
couni y. Alfnlfa will not pay if It
yields good crops only tho second
year. It takes two yc rs to get it
well started and If the third year
proves to bo a failure thero will be
three years to ho charged against
Last year was nu exceptional year
for alfalfa In this relon. Tho almost
unbroken drouth for two months and
the constant sunshine were Just the
things that brought to the surface the
valuo of alfalfa. Ordinary years can
not bo depended on to clvo tho samo
amount of sunshine. This sunshine
Is needed to help alfalfa do Its best.
Last year tho Farmers' Rovlew made
some Inquiries In Michigan as to how
long tho successful alfalfa fields had
been in existence. In every case in
vestigated tho successful crops had
been on tho land only two years.
Wo would llko to havo tho oxporlenco
of thoso who aro attempting to grow
alfalfa In any of tho humid slates.
Tomato Leaf-Spot and Muskmelon
The Ohio Experiment station warns
tomato growers to bo on the alert for
tomato leaf-spot and to begin early in
tholr measures for its proventlon.
Tho prevailing wet weather is favor
able to this disease which may again
provo as destructive as in 1898 nnd
1900. Spraying tho plants wltn Bor
deaux mixture at intervals of two to
threo weoks promises very large re
turns should such moist weather con
tinue. Gardenors and truckers are also
warned to begin spraying for the
downy mildew of muskmelons and
cucumbers, should their plants prom
ise to yield after the middle of August.
Earlier spraying for this disease was
not required, but from the present
date forward, treatment should bo
made at intervals of 8 to 10 daya if
a late yield Is anticipated. A. D.
The well-drained land will be easy
to work after a freshet, and it wilt
bo also easy to work after a drouth.
On well-drained land tho roots of
plants Btrlko dooper than on poorly
drained land. In tho case of drouth
the deep going roots sustain tho plant
through tho crisis.
Hybridization of fruits has in it
great possibilities for tho future. Tho
standard varieties of fruits are the
raw matorlals from which mon can
creato new and wonderful things.
