FARM ASD FIRESIDE.
nape on llinnrr.
Tli proportions of salt and lime, of
-which I make a mixture, is one bushel
of salt to three bushels of slacked lime.
This mixture I put in a ci.tern, hogs
head or barrel, and keep it filled with
water ; placing the cistern in the pround,
on one side where I make a heap of
manure. In former years when I carried
n quite a large farming business, and
kept five horses, and other stock, I built
ii manure thed adjoining my horse stable,
of the canie length as the stable. The
iioor of the stable was slightly inclined
to the rear, and all of the urine would
run to the bsck part. Here I left an
opening into the manure shed, and made
a water tiiht floor, descending from both
-hVs to the centre. In the centre, and
under this floor I placed a tight trough
emptying into the cistern. Upon this
floor the manure was thrown every day
iVom the stables. The liquid in the cis
tern was pumped over the manure two
or three times a week, and all the surplus
which was not absorbed by the manure,
run back into the cistern. When Jhe
water was exhausted, an additional
quantity was supplied. 15y this method,
nil tho animal excrements, both solid and
liquid, were preserved.
The tflVct of this mode of procedure is
to preserve the whole of the manure
without exposure to the sun or the rains,
and thu-t evaporation and washing away
are both prevented, and, consequently, a
liirfc-e aving of the mot valuable parts
i.f the manure. The direct effect ot this
salt and lime mixture upon the manure
is to hasten drcom position, while all the
prn;ertis of the manure are preserved
to destroy the germinating power of foul
srfds, which usually are such a terror to
the farmer, aud to reduce the whole mas,
ynr? T fine, to such a condition as will
liable the workin?men to handle and
uve it as they would ground gypsum, or
.".u y other tine fertilizer. Whenever the
iiiasH becomes warm, and likely to "fire
"in?," set the pumps to work, and a qui
H.us ill be placed on it at once. I hve
generally kept in the stable a barrel of
ground gypsum, which I have sprinkled
around the stalls two or three times a
week, which prevents the rising of the
carnonaie ot ammonia irom the decom
jw.Bing excrements, in tne stable, which
is so destructive to the eyes and luugs o
horses. Hy this process, an almost nn

The economy and desirability of green
crop manuring over all other methods,
excepting irrigation, is evident from the
low cst and availability to all ; from the
large quantity of nitrogen and valuable
chemicals obtained at lower cost than by
any other manure ; from the superior
cultivation the land receives during this
frocess, and finally because the poorest
and can be redeemed in one year by the
ability to plow under three crops in a
single sens n, or by planting rye, buck
wheat and corn, thus supplying all the
minerals demanded by any crop. The
lies!, practical illustration of the value of
green manuring is furnished by some of
the finest farming lands in New York
state, that are producing more now than
they Hid twenty five vears ago, and vet
have been treated with clover only dur
ing the past seventy-five-year?., furnished
excellent crops in the rotation of wheat
oats, corn, barley and grass. The" best
method of handling clover for green
manuring is to bow the Beed early and
mow or plow under about the middle of
June; if mown, let It remain spread
over the ground as a mulch and top-ures-ing,
and a second crop will mature
Eufiicienltv by the last of August to mow
again and plow under in September.
Clover end its roots average a washed
weight of two and one-quarter pounds to
tho square foot, or foity-nine toes per
aero. Kye and corn will furnish two
croj a in one season by plowing the rye
under when in the milk, then sowing
one and one-half bushels of corn per acre,
cutting it and permitting it to remain as
a top-dn s -ing during the winter. The
great value of rye as a green manure
consists in the fact that its component
parts are nearly the same as Btable
manure, ton for ton, except a Blight dif
fering in phosphoric acid. Kye will
grow where no other crop can ; rye aud
buckwheat Hq well together, and cutting
tho buckwheat when in blossom will
f iriiisii h second crop. Oata and barley
lire valuable as given manures, barley
being richer than any grmn or grass in
potash or phosphoric acid. Oata will
yield the greatest weight in straw and
grain if cut in the milk. Green manures
gather daily supplies of moisture, espe
cially if on the surface, feeding the
organic world with nourishing food or
blood, which can not be obtained from
ordinary manure when plowed under.
The latter often remains worthless from
dry-rot or heat produced from lack of
moisture needed to bring out its value.
Another decided advantage possessed by
green manures is the large amount ot
water the contain for supplying the
growing plants through drought, while
other manures only consume the water
in the soil. Maine farmer.
This can be done without anything
being put into your coffee to settle it.
It only wants to be known how to handle
it. Tut your ground ccfltee into the
coffee-pot, and add cold water sufficient
for use, if but a few cups are wanted,
yet ou the Btove and keep there until
the boiling point is 'reached, but in no
case boil. This requires some watching
toward the last. It is better to set it
off a few minutes before boiling than to
have it boil up. Immediately when set
off stir the surface with a spoon. This
can be done two or three times in as
many minutes. Then let it rest. In
about ten minutes' time it will all be
sunk to the bottom and fit to pour out.
Where more than a few cups are wanted,
more water (hot) may be added when
the coffeepot is removed from the stove,
or hot water may be used to dilute the
coffee when it is poured out, as is some
times done with tea. In thi3 way your
coffee is clear and sparkling, and, what
is of equal importance, it will retain all
its fine favor and exhilarating proper
ties, which, had it been boiled, would
have lie n thrown off. Be particular in
carrying out directions to the letter.
You will soon get the hang of it, and
thank us for the directions, simple as
they are. Indiana farmer.

A Look at Jassy, the Russian Base in

means of what absurd prejudices to find
in the vicinity of the Truth and the

Edwnrd King't Jassu Letter to Bout on
Malaria and Vegetation.
Gen. Egbert L. Viele read a paper
before the New York academy of science,
last Alondav night, which is ot great
scientific interest. ' The subject discussed
was the relations between malaria and
vegetation, and in laying the foundation
for this the consideration of the relations
existing between the animal and vege
table kingdoms in the lower forms ot
organic life. The solution of the causes
of disesse, especially malarial diseases,
Gen. Viele believes will be found in the
parallel lines of cellular development in
plant life, where the animal and vegeta
ble are almost identical, passing in some
instances from the one kingdom into the
other with the facility of a mere change
In the ascend in ir scale of the great line
of demarcation which first develops it
self, is the all important fact that the
refuse of the one is the life of the other. .
This led him to infer that somewhere in
this border line between these two great
kingdoms of nature there must be a just
equilibrium of the normal elements of
vitality, the destruction ot which may
be the true cause of most of the evils
which have been entailed upon our
existence. In great cities, he said, the
surroundings of nature are removed and
the equilibrium of the natural forces is
destroyed by the preponderance of

while miasma has been more sharply
defined as infection floating in air; but
no definition, however iuii r precise,
can give anything like an adequate in
ception of the worderful potentiality and
universal presence if the morbific prin
ciple which is known as malaria. Mias
matic or malarial diseases include all
thobe specific disorders which are
contagiously or which may become epi
demic, and to these are due nearly three
fi'ths of all the deaths which take place
throughout the woild. After referring
to the fact that the physical health of
all human beings improves in the
atmosphere of the country where vegeta
tion flourishes, Gen. Viele spoke ol Prof.
Tyndal'sdemonstration that even minute
particles of the air are vital organism
developed under favoring circumstances
into actual living creatures. In this one
simple experiment, he said, is the whole
secret of contngion.

THE ARMIES SOW IN THE EAST.
The Turk lab and RaulAn Rtaldlera. a, lad
The movements of the present war in
the east have so far developed a very
similiar state of things to that of the
Franco-Prusnan war, the Russians rep
resenting Germany, the Turks France,
There is the same ominpus silence on the
one side? only broken by bulletins of the
occupation of important strategic points,
the same noisy announcements ot sup
posed victories on the other aide, only to
be contradicted a day later. When we
come to examine the condition of the
troops on both aides, and especially of
their organization, the parallel becomes
every day more evident.
Very little is known in America of the
true state of the Turkish army and how
it compares with that of the Russians
It may serve a good purpose now, and
clear away many erroneous impressions
from American minds, to look on affairs
as the really are in Turkey. We will
begin with a short table ot the rank aud
pay of the Turkish army, in American
money. It is taken from the official

with their men. The field officers, on
the other hand, see little or nothing ot
their men, and live in comparative com
fort on their pay, especially the beys
who are haughty and distant in their
manner. The pashas, with their high
salaries, are luxurious and lazy. They
all keep harems, aud run into such ex
penses that even their pay will not sup
port them. Hence an amount of ven
ality and corruption, strongly reminding
oneot the daysot decadence ot iNapoieon

It may be asked how do such officers
behave in action, and how do the men
behave under them ? Again the testi
mony of English observers in unanimous.
While the men are brave and hardy, the
officers as a rule seem to dectease in
courage in exact proportion as they ris-
in rank, and repeated instances are men
tioned during the war of 1854 5 when
the beys and pashas displayed the most
shameful cowardice, deserting their bat
talions in action and leaving them to be
led on by a simple milasim-souva or
second lieutenant, who stuck to his men
feeling himself one ol them.
How Eyes (J row.
Few products of nature are more in
teresting than a sound, fully developed
eye. By the aid of a good microscope it
is easy to see and count some seven'thou
sand lenses, admirably set to receive light
from all directions, in tne eye ot a com
mon house fly. Until quite recently,
and after the facts ot evolution had been
carefully studied, it was believed that an
eye not only suggested, but revealed the
handv work of an architect quite as
clearly as a watch or a steam engine.
Now, men ot science have little doubt
that the beautiful and wonderful median
ism of the eye in all its varieties, grows
like a hundred thousand species of plants,
and a much greater number ot animals,
from an inherent, active force in matter.
This change of method does not detract
from the creative energy of the great
first cause. The origin of life is still a
mystery, but not the origin of eyes, ears
and the organs ot sense. Democntus,
two thousand three hundred years ago.
recognized the existence of a general
sense of touch from which all the senses
are slowly developed. In this idea we
see the germ evolution.
Fish have been found in the
dark Mammoth cave of Kentucky
with no eyes. They had no use
for eyes, and they ceased to grow.
If light produces eyes, as it does green
leaves on trees and grass, the question is.
how ? Tyndall, who has studied the
properties of light more clceely than
most scientists, says: "Ihe action of
light, in the first instance, appears to be
a mere disturbance of the chemical pro
cesses in tho animal organism, similar to
that which occurs in the leaves of plants.
By d greea the action becomes localized
in a few figment-cells, more sensitive to
the light than the surrounding tissue.
The eye is here incipient. At first it is
caiable of revealing differences of light
and shade produced by the bodies close
at hand. Followed as the interception
of the light is in almost all ca-es by the
contact of the closely adjacent opaque
body, sight in this condition becouies a
kind ot 4 anticipatory touch.' Ihe ad
justment continues, a slight bulging out
of the eperdermis over the figment
A lense is incipient, and through the
operation ot infinite adjustments, at
length reaches the perfection that i dis
plays in the hawk and the eagle, so of
the other seases ; they are special differ
entiations of a tissue which was origin

.byes are very suggestive. 1 hey prompt
the inquiry whether that vitality which
has done so much to give remarkable
wings, bones and bungs, as well as keen
vision to the eagle : which imparts fins
and tail to the fish for swimming; and
enables man by his electric batteries and
wires to talk understanding with bis
brothers of the globe may not continue
to grow, and do infinitely more for ex
alted manhood on earth, in the infinite
future ? There is unmistakable evidence
that life has been progressive on this
planet millions ot years ; and all know
that tne end is not yet, and may not
come ior millions of years.
Effect of the Sew Tork Fool-Selling
Bill on Racing.
" What effect on racing will the DassasrA-
of the bill prohibiting pool selling in
New York have ?" said I to Mr. JIc-
Orath, as we walked toward his house.
A very bad effect," was his reply.
The opponents of pool-selliner claimed
that if the bill was passed the race-tracks
would receive the patronage of a laree
class of people who were kept away from
them by the betting that was done on
them church people, I presume they
were. Well, the time may come when
horse races w 11 be opened with prayers,
but it will not be in my days, or yours
either young man. People eo to the
race tracks and buy tjooIs on the h.-irsM
in order to partake of the excitement of
the races. The pool-sellers ray the rac
ing associations large sums for the privi
of selling pools, and the mooey en--ables
the M.w.jation to offer large purses
and stakes to be ..tended for. The
large stakes induce the oMnl Qf tbe
finest horses to enter and run for ttam.-.
and this it is that makes fine r.icinjr, and
makes the race track attractive and pop
ular. Take away the privilege of st-Uing
pools, and the aocialiorjs, thus deprived,
will be compelled to curtail the size of
their stakes and purses. This will pre
vent the owners of the bei-t horses from
entering them for competition, for if it
costs four, five or six hundret dollars to
train a horse for racing, you are not going
to enter him for a etake of half, or even
the whole, of that amount. If nt class
horses do not contend for the prizes, the
public will not patronize the course,
racing will fall into decrepitude and the
consequence will be that it will no longer
be pioritable to breed the finest kind of,
horses, tor their price will decline w thai
it will cuiteriaily interfere with the ia-1
come of stock raisers all over the country.
This is my opinion at present but the
result may oe w uuuu up racing to an
unthought of extent outside of the state
of New York, and may induce the own
ers of the best stock to run it more in
the west and south." " What effect will

Chamberlin'a fortune ?' said I. "Why
it will be his salvation," was the response.
Of course all the New York meetings

if the meeting at Long Branch was one of

chance to do so. Cincinnati Enquirer.
Starvation In Northern China.
Simultaneously with the dearth in
India, a famine is racing in the north of
China : but while the care, and energy of
the Indian government reduces the dis
tress in the former case to a minimum,
people are dying by thousands in China
of sheer starvation; The scenes of the
chief distress are in the north and east,
in the extreme north of Kiansrsu, in
Shantung' in Pechili, and in Shanse:
and from Shantung especially the ac
counts are heartrenderirg. The whole
tract of country suffered last summer
from severe drouth whlen nearly de
stroyed the crops; and the peasantry,
having eaten what little grain they had
in store, or were able to gather, are re
duced to the last stage ot want. The
people are eating grain husks, potato
stalks, and elm bark, buckwheat stalks,
turnip leaves, and grass seeds, which
they gathei up in the fields. After
there are exhausted they pull down their
houses and sell the timber, and many
eat the rotten sorghum stalks from the
roof. They sell their clothes and chil
dren. Having no clothing left to pro
tect ' them from the cold,' many take
refuge in pits underground to keep them
selves warm by the fetid breath of the
crowd. In the eatt surbubs of Chinge
how city there are four such pits. Ones
third ot the number (240) originally put
into them are now dead within six
.weeks, and no sooner is a corpse carried
out than a crowd are struggling for the

300 dead of starvation ; villages of 300
report 100 dead.

The Funniest of MarriaeeSi
A good story is told of how he ter
formed the ceremony of marriage while
he was justice of the peace. It was his
first attempt, and the applicants were ot
the true wt stern type. They called unon
Cody in the log cabin where he held his
justice office. Bill had a book o' forms,
which he took down and studied atten
tively to get some idea of how he should
tie the knot. There were forms for
nearly every transaction of life, but he
failed to find what he was looking for.
and finally slammed the book down and
observed to the parties :

" two fellers " did so.
Then he said to the groom : "Are you

She giggled, and nodded in the affirma

thing on a dead square, and we can't
marry folks by halves in this country.
We are bound to go the whole hog. If
you want this here man for a husband
you must speak out and say so, as though
you meant it sure. I'll ask you again.
Will you take this here man to be your
lawful wedded husband, to love him,
honor him and support him?"
This time the lady responded bravely,
"Yes sir, I will."
This satisfied his honor, and he re
marked, ' That settles it. Now look

Evils of (Jossip.
I have known a country society which
withered away to nothing under the dry
rot ot gossip only, friendships-, once as
firm as granite, dissolved to jelly, and
then ran away to water only because of
this; love that promised a future as en
during and as stable as truth, evaporated
into a morning mist that turned to a
day's long tears, only because of this ;
'ather and a son were set foot to foot
with the fiery breath of an anger that
would never cool again between them :
and a husband and a young wife, each
straining at the hated lash which in the
beginning had been the promise of a
Cud-blessed love, eat mournfully by the
side of the grave where all theirlove and
all their joy Jay buried, and all because
ot this. 1 have seen faith transformed
to mean doubt, joy give place to erim
despair, and charity take on itself the
features ot black malevolence, all be
cause of the fell words of scandal, and
the magic mutterings of gossip, (treat
crimes work great wrong, and the deeper
tragedies or human lire spring from the
larger passions; but woeful and mott
mournful the shipwreck often made of
noble natures ana lovely lives by the
bittr winds and dead salt waters of
slander. So easy to say, yet so hard to
disprove throwing on the innocent all
the burden and the strain of demonstra
ting their innocence, and punishing them
as guilty it unable to pluck out the
stings they never see, and to silence
words they never hear gossip and
slander are the deadliest and cruelest
weapons man has ever forged for his
brother's heart. All ihe Year Rmmd.
Convicts Who Suffer Most.
The chaplain ot Millbrook, London's
largest convict prison, says that the men
whose condition is the most pitiable
when they leave jail are mercantile
clerks, post-office employees, etc. In
competition with the crowds of reputa
ble men eager for every employment, no
matter how small the remuneration,
they have little chance of obtaining em
ployment of the kind to which they wt re
accustomed, and being unused to manual
labor they find themselves in a position
which renders a return to crime an al
most overwhelming temptation. And
yet they are the most hopeful and re
pentant class, and only dire necessity
compels them in most cases to repeat
their offenses. What is still more against
them, he says, is the fact that they have
little to expect from their friends. " The
poor, it cannot be denied, are far more
ready to assist a fallen relative than the
more well-to do members of society, and
-in the present instance I might rite a.
case in which an application I myself ad-dresAt-d
on behalf of a discharged con
vict -to his friends, persons of some posi
tion in society, was not deemed worthy
ot a Jorrnaj acknowledgment."

There was an earnest word, two bands held out,

In momentary rest;
The mobile mouth and tender eyes
Were turned to bliu in glad surprise.
It was so ery, rery nle. you know, .. ,
To nreas her sea-sifle hat against his vest :
A sweet foretaste of Heaven, although
The rest as only momentary rest.
For with remorseful start she said :

How small a word wili grind the heart to dust !

On which we hang our trust.

He took f rem her I be Dead Sea fruit,
And simply bowed his head.

It was the opulence of brawny arms,
Against five-twenties and a hundred farms.

If there was ever a time in the annals
of female attire when modesty was en
tirely disregarded, that time is when a
belle ef the period. dresses fof an even
ing entertainment -or ah actress for a
" swell" part. Tne waist is cut square
in the neck, back and front, and very
low, especially behind, the opening ol
the dress extending almost dawn to the
waist. There are no sleeves, only a
shoulder strap, which makes a woman
look all arms, neck and bust a terrible
expanse of bare flesh, which is softened
only by a necklace, or a black velvet
ribbon with a 1 jcket attached. The waist
is cut basque shape, but plain and tight
to the figure, aud comesjdown to the hip
bone ; there the skirt begins, but there is
not a old; nor should there be eveh a
wrinkle in front or at the sides; at the
back breadth ona or two immense box
plaits are set in to give the requisite
fluffing and the sweep of the train. The
ooping or puff, owing to the extreme
length of the body for it terminates at
the end of the backbone must of neces
sity be very low down.
Most t the dresses are without over-
skirt, sash, flounce or trimming ef any
kind. Pome of the skirts have a full
flounce about a foot deep at the bottom
of the dress, inside of which is tacked
fine white muslin flounce, trimmed with
lace to represent a petticoat, and this is
said to be positively all the undercloth
ihff that on actress or a dame de societe
wears in full dress. Such a dress as Ibis,
of handsome, thick cream colored silk, is
worn by Miss Katherine Rogers as the
princess in " The Danichefls." It cer

standing up, but it is laughable to see

one should step on the skirt, tearing it
away from the body. Jn such an event,
if report be true. Eve herself would be
rivaled in simplicity and paucity of ap
parel because under clothing, for an
ultra fashionable lady, is obsolete. All
the actresses dress the same, and it re
veals, alas! in many cases, less beauty of
form than our sex is generally credited
with. It shows the bad effect of tight

The young gentleman, in many in

and this dazzles the eyes so utterly, that
the young lady refuses to look farther.
She should satisfy herself on such points

Cupid now dances so merrily, always

In 1811 the opposing Bussian and
Turkish arttlies stood facing each other

making a itmu ana so attracting me
Russians to a spot some ihrei fMles be
low the real point of passage, in throw
ing a force of 2,000 men and four guns
across the river a short distance above
(riurgevo. The first attempts of the
Bussfans to drive this small body back
into the river wefe attccssfally with
stood; reinforcements were rapidly
brought over from the right to the left
bank, until finally 30,000 men and fifty
guns were assembled on the northern
shore. Every effort to advance further
and drive back the Russian army, which
had fallen back Into an Intfenchedposi
tjon, was, however, repulsed the Turks
themselves beiffg obliged after a time to
construct intrenChmenis to' Withstand
the counter attacks directed against
them. Unable to drive back the invad
ing force, the Russians desisted from any
further active measures against it, but,
bringing a strong flotilla of gunboats up
the Danube, to prevent supplies being
carried across the river into the Turkish
camp on the left bank, they quietly
awaited ettnts. The provision of the
Turkish fofce, tbtis completely isolated,
unable to adyance.beca'use of the Russian
force in front of it, unable to retreat be
cause of the flotilla which eaectually
prevented any bridge being thrown
across the river, soon began to run short.
The weather became cold; but there
was no fuel with which to kindle fires.
Jnder these circumstances the sufferings
ot the men were very great. For some
time there was horeefiesb, but it had to
be eaten raw. as even the tent poles had
been cnt up and burned. Hundreds
died daily, and their comrades had not
strength to bury them. Disease was
consequently soon added to famine, so
that when finally, on the 8th of Decem
ber, peace was concluded, but four
thousand men, who are described as be
ing but living skeletons with scarce suf
ficient strength to stand upright, were
left out of the thirty thousand who
three months before had crossed the
Russia reached the mouths of. her
rivers long ago, and got beyond them,
unless the Danube is also to be reckoned
as a Russian stream. Yet the exertions
of the Russian government to augment
its military forces were' never greater
than they have been in the last six years.
She had already the power to bring halt
a million of men into the field. But the
grand measure of universal conscription
sanctioned by the ukase of January,
1875, will add another half million to
that number of her active troops, and
another million to the feSer7C. These
enormous forces can only be raised and
maintained for aggressive purposes The
territory of Russia is invulnerable.
Nobody has the slightest interest in at
tacking it, unless she begins by attacking
some one else. If attacked, as she was in
1812, she may rely on her climate, her
extent and the patriotism of her popula
tion for effectual defense: Setting aside
ambitious considerations, we should say
that to burden a poor and thinly popula
ted country with the maintenance of an
enormous army Is the most mischievous
policy thst can be conceived. It is a
perpetual drain on the manhood of the
empire. It enormously weakens its pro
ductive powers. It leads to a frightful
waste of life. When the Emperor Nicholas
once expressed his surprise at the inferior
ity of the men in his army to the seamen
of his fleet in point ot discipline and con
dition Count Woronzow replied that
what the aimy wanted was 'more food
and less drill. ' Hundreds of thousands
of human beings hate been sacrificed in
the lat fifty years to the stupid Pride of
exhibiting to the world the shows and
pageants of a great military establish
ment. What renders this state of things
still mere lamentable and extraordinary
is that the Russians are not a warlike or
combative people. Even in their drink
ing bouts they do not fight. They are
entirely ignorant of all that goes on
abroad and entirely indifferent to glory.
Nor can any conceivable benefit accrue
to the people of Russia by threatening and
molesting their neighbors, or by the ac
quisiion of territory, of which they have
already more than enough. If their
country were attacked they would de
fend it with undaunted courage, but as a
race of men thera is no people in the
world less disposed to slaughter their
neighbors. Milittry service is with them
the result of absolute, blind, unquestion
ing obedience. They submit to it a
they submit to a law of nature, because
they are docile and brave, l et surely
military service, as it is understood in
Russia, is the most detestable form of
slavtrv : for a peaceful peasant is con
verted by it, without the least will of his
owu, into a bloodhound, a destroyer or a
victim. And this burden is now hung
with redoubled weight upon the back of
every peasant in the empire. The whole
community is crushed by it. Military
service is the primary obligation of life,
and must effect every other relation ot
society. Edinburgh Review.
Stick to yonr Business.
There is nothing which should be
more frequently impresoea upon tne
minds of young men than the importance
of eteadily pursuing some one business.
The frequent changing from one employ
ment to another, is one of the most
common errors committed, and to it may
lie traced more than half the failures of
men in busine, and much of the diaJ
content and disappointment which ren
der life uncomfortable. It i a very
common thing for a man to be dissatisfied
with his business, and to desire to change
it for some other, which, it seems to him,
will prove a more lucrative employment;
but in nine cases out of ten, it i a mis
take. Look around, you, and you will
find among your acquaintances abundant
verification of our assertion.
There is an honest farmer who has
toiled a few yeais, pot his farm paid for,
but does not grow rich rapidly, as much
for lack ot contentment mingled with in
dustry as anything, though he i-t not
aware of it. He. hears the wonderful
stories of California, and how fortunes
may be had for tne trouble ot picEmg
them up ; mortgages his farm to raise the
money, goes away to tne iana or goia,
and, after many months of hard toil,
come home to commence again at the
bottom of the hill for a more weary and
less successful climbing up again. Mark
the men in every community who are
notorious for ability, and equalfy noto
rious for never getting ahead, and you
find them to be those who never stick. to
one business long, but are always forsak
ing their occupation just when it begins
to be profitable. &ctcUjtc American.
