the village lately. lie has on baud a good
stock of seed potatoes as usual. His plan of
keeping them through the wintar season is
very simple. His time ior digging is at or
belore the first frosts. The potatoes are then
put into cellars with -a layer of weUrCured
crab-grass at the bottom, aud as the cellars
are filled up the coating of grass is built up
on the sides so as to keep the potatoei from
touching the earth at any point. -No mix
lure ot sand or anything of the sort is allow
ed, and no covering on top except in cases
of very cold weather, when some hay or dry
grass or old clothing is thrown over tliu top,
to be removed when the weather is mild.
His success is invariable. He has great suc

. Clin est Co. threshed out about one hun
dred bushels of clover seed, Thos. T.Martin
turned out more seed than any in the neigh

an idea in the country that there is no seed
in the first crop; this is a mistake, if the
first crop stands until it is thoroughly ripe,
it will turn out more aud better seed than
the second, from the tact, that where we get
two crops of anything in one year, the first
is always the heaviest. Mr, Martin is dis

the honored order of Gocd Templars iu

I could sympathize some Willi the corre
spondent at Mci 'nin's Church, til his trou
bles with that old blind goat, but "he ought
uot to have been seeking pleasui t s iu Unit
way. United Frieiitls of Tempeiance I 1 .s
pect we have had some of 1 hem in our com
munity, such as. Sons of Temperance, Gotsl
Templars, Councils, Silver CrosHes, and
many other liuuies now forgotten. They
ail had ( I have been informed) their goat
aud big fat man. I don't know how the Ini
tiation act was iK'1'lormi'd, lor 1 always kept
out ol that pew; the goat ride generally
took place atterwards. When tliey bail
been shut up In Temperance Mulls fo'r one,
two or three mouths, they would break wut.
Under the sign, "saloon," was the place the
riding was done; the gout generally did it.
I believe these little mouied institutions
are all numbered with the dead. Whisky
cheaper, tbetter quality, more of It,) uud
l x-ket change that formerly was given to
the "big fat man" tor administering pledges
is given for collbe and other necessaries of
life. So I w ill say to my Iriend Diilymus,
keep oil' of "old goat." Bi'HALOMAN,
