To improve corn, one should study the
plants on wlr.ch he intends to experiment.
Let him take pattern after the successful
breeder of animals. The latter studies
the animals "which are mated. Let a
breeder of corn select the best stalks in
his field, cover the young ears before-the
"silk." comes in sight. Then take pollen
from a stalk very much like the one which
is to bear the seed corn. Sajyp the best
car, plant in a good place by itself, 'and
cultivate well. Continue this work, and
in a few years he can make almost anything
he choses of his corn. One should
let no peculiarity of corn escape his attention.
See which endures dry weather
best; notice the height of the upper ear,
the stalk, the earliness, the number of
nodes, whether the stalks are sTender or
stout; whether the ears have long or
short husks, long or short, or large or
small shanks, etc. This is a fascinating
study, and lie who will begin an intelligent
series of experiments looking to the improvement
of corn, will be quite sure to
succeed. He will interest and profit himself,
and also become a benefactor to his
race. Prof. "W. J. Beal, in American Agriculturist.

How American Girls Kiss.
The Maine girl, tall and ruddy, kisses as
if she were making an impression in the
chewing gum of her native state. The Massachusetts
girl in the Greek style, flavored
brown bread. The New York girl goes at
it as she were dabbling in a Wall street
speculation. The kiss of the New Jersey
girls is fiery as a taste of applejack, better
known as Jersey lightning. Little Delaware
girls are soft as the peaches which
grow there. A Maryland kiss is rich and
juicy as a terrapin stew. In the Old
Dominion you are met with a genuine
hospitality; the girls kiss as though they
wanted you to stay. The Ohio girl is described
as passing all the comprehensive
qualities of the Ohio man she wants all
she can get and gets all she can. A Louisiana
kiss is said to be like eating sugar
cane, while North Carolina girls stick like

Grant as a Lover.-
Hearingthat there was a lady living in this
city who had once been courted by General
U. S. Grant, and had refused her hand
in early womanhood to this noted American
civil and military, character, a Constitution
reporter sought an interview with
the lady, with very satisfactory results.
The newspapers representative found the
early sweetheart of Grant's to be a lady
considerably advanced in years, yet still
large, active and buoyant and not nearly
so reticent as the General. She had not
seen General Grant since the '50s, she said,
and then his father carried on a tannery
'in Portsmouth, Ohio. She once had occasion
to reside for a time in the family of
a farmer whose farm joined that of Grant's
father only a lino of fence between, and
it was during her stay at this farmhouse
she was courted by General Grant. It
must have been in the spring time, for she
says she and Grant would meet at the
division fence, on each side of which were
" Ulick," said she, " would say to me,
' Let's gather flowers aud see who will
have the most kinds when wo get
" You mean Grant when you say
'Ulick ? ' " interrupted the reporter ; ' his
name is Ulysses."
"Yes," she replied, " we always called
him 'Ulick,' and while he was" courting
me and wanted to marry, me, my father
used to laugh at him anil plague me, saying,
' He's the greenest looking boy I ever
saw,' " and chuckling to herself she added,
"and he was a green losking fellow. I
remembor the last time 1 saw ' Ulick,'
We had been buggy riding. We had
alighted from the buggy, and he stood
leaning with one arm on the wheel of the
vehicle and looking into my face he said,
'Well, Ellen (my name is Eleanor, but
they called me Ellen,) if I ever find any
body that I love well enough to marry and
am so fortunate as to have a daughter,
you know what that daughter's name will
be." The daughter's name is Nellie, a
pretty contraction of Eleanor.
" We shall not publish your name," said
the representative, " since you have been
so kind and courteous to us, without permission.
Can we use your name?" Finally
she remarked : ;
'! I am not ashamed of my father's name,
it was Charles Brandon, and my maiden
name was Eleanor Brandon. My first
husband's name was John Spaulding.
Further than this I will not go."
Some Things Money Can't Buy.
Some boys and girls have an idea that
money cant do almost anything, but this is
a mistake, Money, it is true, can do a
great deal, but it cannot do everything. I
could name you a thousand things it
buy. It was meant for good, and it is
a goodthing to have, but all this depends
on how it is used. If used wrongly, it is
an injury rather than a benefit. Beyond
all doubt, however, there are many things
better than it is, and which we cannot
purchase, no matter how much we may
have of it.
If a man has not got a good education,
all his money cannot buy it for him. He
can scarcely ever make up his early waste
of opportunities. He may say, as" I have
heard men say :
"I would give all I have if I only had a
good education and a well-trained mind ;"
but he will say it in vain. Ills money
alone cannot obtain it.
Neither will wealth itself give a man or
woman good manners. Nothing, next to
good health, is of more importance than
easy, graceful, self-possessed manners.
But they can't be had for mere money.
A man who is what is called " shoddy,"
who has no taste and correct manners,'
will never buy them, though he woul.l,
no doubt like them. They are not to he
had in the market. They are nowhere
for sale. You might 'as well try to buy
the sky, or clouds or sunbeams.
Money can't purchase a good conscience.
If a poor man, or a boy, or a girl or any
orie has a clear conscience, that gives off
a tone like a sound bell when touched
with the hammer, then he is sure he is
vastly richer than the millionaire who
does not possess such a conscience. Good
principles are better than gold. All the
gold of Golconda couldn't buy them for a
man who hasn't them already.
