It is said that Choate had a command of
language, and his brain teemed with a
w- altu of diction truly marvelous. When
Judge tihaw first heard that there was a

At the beginning of the testimony,

"Kiss My Wife or Fight."
There are a few married men who are
averse to seeing thtir wives kissed; bat a
correspondent relates the particulars of a
ca in which a newly made Benedict felt
himnelf insulted because his wife was not
kissed. The bridegroom In question was
a stalwart young rustic, who was known
as a formidable operator in a free fight
His bride was a blooming and beauuiul
country girl, only sixteen years of age,
aud the twain were at a party where a
number of young folks of both sexes were
enjujing themtlves in the old-fashioned
style. Every girl in the room was called
out and kissed, except the beautiful young
bride, afort siid; and although there was
not a youi gater ho as not dying to
taste her lips, they were restrained by the
presence of her herculean husband, who

however, for suddenly he expressed him

the middle of the room, and iu a tone of

How to Keep Canary-Birds.
Many persons havediiflculty in keeping
their cjiary -birds in good health. One
who is expel ienced in their care says :
Place the cage so that no draft of air can
etr.ke the bird ; give .nothing to healthy
birds but canary and rape-seed, mixed
with water, cuttlefish bone, and gravel on
the floor of the cage; also, a little aaier
for bathing; the room should not be over
heated ; hen moulting (shedding feathers)
avoid draft 8 of air; give plenty of rape
seed, siigntly moisten, d ; a little hard
boiled egg and cracker grated fine is ex
cellent ; by observing these simple direc
tions, birds may be kept in fine condition
for years. Bad seed kills most of the birds
that die ; to which might have been added,
tnat canary-birds are not only very fond of
but benefited by having often a leaf of
cabbage, pieces of apple, or other green
food, which serves to keep down the
tendency to fever and-prevent constipa
tion. our birds usually bathe each da as
regularly as any one washes the face, and
with apparent benefit, to0. When birds
are nek, and inclined not to eat well, re
move all the food fi-.mdav nrl tbon nnlw

Engage them in covensation upon any
topic involving much grasp of thought;
propound to them any one of the great
problems of vital importance to the human
race; you shall see how theirminds shrink
from effort they are incapable of perform
ing ; and how they fall back upon the sup
pons of old superstition and prejudice,
and there find rest from the labor such
questions involve. This general mental
emaciation is one reason reforms move so
alowly. The best and strongest minds are
tugging at the mysteries of nature, and ex
penoing their energies in physical re
searches Some intellectual giants are
also grappling with problems of social
construction, political conomy, and mor
als, but as their teachings are directed
mainly to the mentally emaciated, they
mike but little headway in correcting ex
isting evils Men, in the hot pursuit .of
wealth, which is the most absorbing of
present humijn aims, neglect systematic
thought, fc d their minds upon little else
than the sloppy pabulum of sensational
daily papers, aud become mentally starved.
How few there are that can safely think
for themselves upon any subject not im
mediately relating to their profession or
calling! Vt hat millions might be count
ed, who might far better shut their eyes
aud accept without thought the conclu
sions of such men .as Mill and Spencer,
than even attempt to reach a conclusion or
form a definite opinion from their own
Talk with men engaged in professions
which imply greater breadth of thought
than ordinary business occupations, and
how often you will hear the admission,
that their habits of thought have unfitted
them for correct thinking upon topics
which require systematic thought, and
strictly logical method ! Ask nine out of
any ten, selected at random, what is their
religious belief? and you will find that
iney either have none, or that they accept
a creed they cannot comprehend or ex-1
plain. If they vote at genral elections,
they are guided by hastily formed opinions,
for which th- y have never sought good
and sufficient reason. Somebody's plausi
ble speech, or some half conceived prinei
pie of right or wren?, is en ugh to intlii
ence their action ; and so they give their
minds the rest they crave, and trust to luck
that it will all come right in the end. Many
are going on through life, similarly trusting
that their future will all come out right
hoping that it will which they call hav
ing faith, and when they suppose them
selves to be trusting iu God, they are
simply trusting in luck.
Hence it follows that sects and creeds
multiply, charlatans prosper in politics, re
ligion and medicine, and false teachers only
find it necessary to assert, with show of
authoiity and with timnlatiou of knowl
edge, to win numerous disciples.
The majority of men prefer lo have
other people think or pretend to think for
them. Glittering generalities that either
mean nothing, or mean falsehood, are ac
cepted as torinulas of action, and repeated
as maxims for the guidance of individual
conduct If such a formula be attacked by
some bold critic who sees its hollowness,
the masses who have accustomed them
selves to blindly follow, cling to it, re
fusing to give up that waic'.i lias saved
them the labor of forming an independ
ant opinion, and dreading the mental tiibrt

The American Agriculturist for July
gives the following expose of a new
swindling dodge :
Gaics W. Hubbard, Jn., AOAls This
scoundrel who has his headquarters at 20tS
Broadway, is full of ingenuous swindlng
schemes. The pretended counterfeit mon
ey or sawdust game he has worked under
a great variety of names, and in this, as in
oth.LT cases, he usually manages to operate
upon other dishonest people in such a way
that they cannot appear as witnesses
against him without criminating them
selves. Here is one of his latest swindles.
The following is a copy of many similar
documents returned to us by honest peo
ple. Hubbard had a large lot of them
written out and forwarded to different
parties all over the West. They are all
alike except in the name of the person
addressed. (The bill-head is neatly print

Von wrote that the watch was found and desired
te know its worth. It if a vt ry valuable time

is now worth (410, and for any one deeirini? a cor
rect time-piece, i" really cheap at its first cost.

Bioadway, N. Y.
After mailing sundry thousands of the
above, Hubbard got out a regular power
of Attorney, signed by Durvin, Elliott fc
Co. (probably the real names of some of
his employes), directing the Express
Companies to deliver their parcels to him
self. The result was that many dishonest
people said to themselves, "well, there is
no such person hereabouts, and if there
was, the watch was ' round,' and did not
belong to him, and I'll privately forward
the ('20 25 and get the watch and keep it "
Of course, Hubbard pocketed the funds
and let the dupes whistle for their money.
They dare not expose themselves by com
plaining, and if they did, they would find
no Durvin, Elliott & Co., at 198 Broad
way, for the building is unoccupied such
buildings are often selected as their adver
tised headquarters by various swindlers.
Of course no thoroughly honest person
would forward money for a watch not be
lousing to him, but he would promptly do
as Mr. Gillenwaltus and others have done,
forward the documents to this ofilec, or
elsewhere, for investigation.
We have given considerable space to the
description of this particular swindle to
illustrate how ingenious are the dodges
resorted to, and to shew that great care
should be exercised hi responding to cir
culars, etc , from unknown parties. We
confess, also, to a little satisfaction in
"Showing those who have had a hand in
sending tne thousands ot dollars in re
sponse to this operation, how completely
they have been " done for" in their dis
honest attempts to tet watches not be
longing to them.
The sleep-walkers who go from room to
room, and are very busy in a sort of world
of their own, without actually composing
new music or writing new compositions,
are numerous. The Morning Chionicie, in
1822, gave an account of a seaman who
slept for a night at an inn in York. Wish
ing to be called early next morning, and
knowing himself to be a heavy sleetv ne
directed the chamberma.d to coe j'j,;
room and call him, if a:4 not hew her
"" --or. Wafcib Vhen the
sun was i.gri in tbe havens, he feltcei
tam inat Be slept -far beyond the
proper time ; but lookine for his wat to
know the hour, he found thai It was not
in its place under the pillow, where he had
placed it. He jumped out cf bed tod rets,
but his clothes were gone; and, looking
round, he found himselt in a strange room.
He rang the bell; the chambermaid ap
peared, and then he found that he bad, at
some early hour in the morning, left his
bed and wandered in a somnambulistic
sleep into another room; for when the
maid came to call him he was not in his
proper room. Wienholt relates the case of
a student who, when in & somnambulistic
state, was wont to leave his bed, go to the
parlor or to his study, take out pen," ink
and paper, place music in its proper posi
tion on the piano-forte, an play a whole
piece through with his eyes shut His
friends once turned the music upside-down
while he was playing. He somehow de
tected the change, and replaced the paper
in the proper position. Oa another occa
sion his car detected a note out of tune ;
he tuned the string, and went on again.
On a third occasion he wrote a letter to
his brother, rational and legible to a cer
puint ; but it was singular to observe that
he continued to write after the pen had
lost its ink, making all the proper move
ments without being conscious that he
made no marks on the saner. A case is
on record of a young lady who, when un-
aer tne influence ot a particular nervous
complaint, would walk about the house in
a state of sleep, or coma, steering her way
safely between the articles of lurniture,
and even avoiding objects purposely placed
to obstruct her path. Her eyes were open,
but she evidently did not see through them
in the ordinary sense ; for the entirely dis
regarded strong lights held close to her
eyes, and even a finger that was actually
placed against the eyeball. Physicians
are acquainted with many evidences of
persons wno ao n i ese with tae eyes, but
have some unexplained kind of vision in
certain morbid states of the nervous sys
tem. Those somnambulists wko wander about
in streets and roads, or like Amina,in
ucuiuib uikib; wius along piaaks in
perilous situations, nave the muscular
sense, whatever it may be, eflectively
awake. Doctor Carpenter notices, at
some length, Uie sleep-walkers who
make their way over the roorsof houses,
steadily traverse narrow planks, and even
clamber precipices,- and this they do with
far less hesitation than they would do in
the waking state." The sese of fear is
asleep, whatever else may be awake. Some
somnambulists start off while asleep to at
tend to their regular work, thourh under
very irregular circumstances. Not verv
many years ago a working stone-mason in
Kent was one evening requested by his
master to go next morning to a church
yard in the iieigbbnrhood and m asure the
work which had been done to a wall, in
order that an account might be sent in to
the church wardens. The man went to
bed at the usual time ; but when he awoke
he touud himself fully dresi'd, in the
open air, and in the dark. PresicnUy a
clock struck two, and be knew that he was
in the church-yard. As he found that he
had a measuring rod and a book in his
hand, he resolved to walk about till day
break (it being summer weather), and as
certain what it was he had really done.
He then found that he had measured the
wall correctly, and had entered the par
ticulars in his book. Sometimes, instead
of starting up from sleep to go to work,
persons will fall asleep while workinir r
walking. When Sir John Moore made
his famous retreat to Corunna Wriote bat
talions of exhausted troths slumbered as
they marcht-d. ?Tuleteers have been
known to sleep while guiding their mules,
coachmen while driving on the box, post
boys while trotting on their horses, and
factory children while at work. There
was a rope maker in Germany who often
fell asleep when at woik, and either con
tinued his work in a proper way or use
lessly remade cordage already finished.
Sometimes when walking long distiwes
he was similarly overtaken with sleep ; he
went on sufely. avoiding horses and car
riages, ant) timber lying on the road. On
one occasion he fell asleep just as he
got on horseback ; yet he went on, rode
through a shallow river, allowed his
h irse to drink, drcwuphisUgstopreVent
his feet from being wetted, passed through
a crowded market-place, and arrived safely
at the house of an acquaintance ; his eyes
were closed the whole time, and he awoke
just after reaching the house. GasKentil
describes a case of a man who wsied lo rise
in the night, dress himself while asleep,
draw wine from fc. Cask, snd walk back
to his room without stumbling over any
thing la the morning like other sleep
walkers, he knew nothinff of what had
happened. If ho chahced to wake while
in the cellnr, which once or twice occurred,
he groped his way back in the dark with
m&re difficulty than when the sleep was
upon him. Another Italian, also men
tioned by Gassendi. passed on stilts over a
swollen torrent in the night while asleep,
then awoke, and was too much afraid to
rccross until daylieht camo.
An additional element of interest is
presented in those cases in which speaking
is concerned, the somnambulist either
talking or hearing what is said to him by
others. Many writers mention the in
stance of a young naval c iflcer who was
signal lieutenant to'Lord Hood when the
British tlect was watching Toulon. He
sometimes remained o'n deck eighteen or
twenty hours at a time, watching for sig
nnls, from the other ships; he would then
retire to his cabin, and fall into a sleep so
profound that no ordinary voice could
wake him; but if the word "signal" was
even whispered in his ear be was roused
instantly. Dr. James Gregory cites the
case of a young military officer, gi.ing with
his regiment i n a troop-ship to a foreign
station ia 175-S. who, when asleep, was
peculiarly sensitive to the voices of his
familiar acquaintances, and poweiftlly in
fluenced by anything thev faid to him.
Some of the other young officers, ready
for any pranks, would lead him on through
all the stages of a duel, or of am impending
ship-wreck, or era sanguinary battle; each
sentence spoken by them turning his
dream (if it mty be called a dream) into a
particular direction, until at length he
would start np in imaginary danger, and
perhaps awake by falling out ot his berth
or stumbling over a rope.
Scene in the Rue Royale.
A touching incident is related of a fam
ily living in the Rue Royale. They hail
taken shelter in the celler from the fire,
which was already raging in their domicile ;
the fat Iff r, mother, and a little girl three
years old. Soon the beat became insup
portable ; the smoke threatened to suffo
cate them, and altogether their situation
became most critical.
" Death is but di-ath", however it may
come," said the father, " and it were better
to be killed right out by a bullet than stay
to be slowly roasted here. 1 shall go anil
try to get through the fighting with the
child. Wait here for me." "Taking his
little daughter in his arms, he rushed
throueh the midst of a hail of bullet and
mitraille to the passage where he hoped to
gain a shelt r. Arrived at the gates he
found them closed, while several muskets
were pointed at his head.
" Kill me, if you please," he gasped,
" but save my child." The guns w re
lowered, a passage was made for tbe child,
and one of t he soldiers, a corporal, said to
the father :
" Pass in, quick."
" I cannot,'' he answered, "my wife is
still in danger."
" Well, said the corporal, if yon like to
go back through the fusillade I will admit
you if yon return."
The devoted husband returned, found
the cave, and from the midst of flames and
smoke rescued his unconscious wife; then,
passing her through the fast flying balls,
the ghtes were reached, closed after them,
and they were saved. It sounds almost
like a scene from a drama, yet there were
many such during the reign of terror
which has jut come to an end. The
whole of the Rue Royale up to the Fau
bourg has been completely destroyed.

USEFUL AND SUGGESTIVE.
A remedy for sunstroke, which is said
to have proven effectual in cases where it
has been tried, is to bathe the hands, head
face with lemon juice. The effect is imme

drenching the roots of newly set trees,
when they do not start to grow as soon as
the owner desires. The ground becomes
sodden, and the roots water-soaked, to
their serious injury. Trees never want
much water till the leaves open.

Thrash the Grain Early.
It is always economical v umsQ eariv.
We would advise every fanner, who can
possibly do it, to thrash his wheat, rye, or
oatj, as the proo ts drawn liom the field,
There are many considerations in favor cf
doing this. 1st. By reason of the state of
dryness in wmch it is named 03 tue held,
the grain is ia better condition for the
threshing machine (or certainly as good)
than at any other time. 2d. Only one
handling is necessary, andt this labor is
saved. 3d. At harvest-time grin is Al
most a'rveys In Letter demand by millers,
tad in the general market often brings a
higher price than at o her times. Taking
one year with another, it will be found
that this is the most advantageous time to
market grain. If the farmer holds his
grain for speculation, very well : he has a
right to become a speculator if any one
has ; but we hold as a general rule, that
so soon as a farmer has his produce ready
for market, then is his best time to sell.
The earliest markets are almost invariably
the bcs'. We were once enabled to sell
the whole of our crop of wlieU at a huh
price, for seed, because we had thrashed in
time aud none of our neighbors had.
Lastly and most worthy of consideration
is the fact that, by thus early thrashing
and marketing, the dcstiuctiou by vennin
micq, rats, 'weevil, etc. is prevented. We
believe that ten per cent at lcat of the
grain put into barns is put there uninten
tionally of course, but not the 1 j

field among the sheaves.
If four horses are kept on the Cirm, one
pair may be hauling while the other is at
the machine. If only asingle team is kept,
they can be unhitched from the wagon
put into the machine, and as soon as the
load is thrashed, tak'-n to the field again
for another load. While loading, two ex
tra hands may be profitably engaged put
ting away the straw or cleaning up and
bagging grain, or storing it in the granary.
If it is impracticable to thrash the grain
as it is drawn, we would stack it close to
tbe barn, make the top secure for a few
days, and as soon as possible, thrash it out.
Even this mode would tend to save labor
as well as grain, and on a small or new
rami, where machines are not as yet intro
duced, any plan whereby labor can be
saved is worthy of consideration and
adoption. American Agriculturist.

Salting, Packing and Selling Butter.
The proper salting of butter requires
great care. The salt should be thoroughly
incorporated into the moas so as to reach
any remaining particles oi either casein or
hiob-ture. All this ia perfectly done in the
churn, if the practical directions given by
the manufacturers are followed. Most
people in this country require for flavor
ing about one ounce of good pure salt V) a
pound of butter; but the better paying
class of customers, who are a little more
fastidious about the quality, prefer about
one-half as much, and that is found quite
sufficient for its preservation, if the casein
hag bien properly removed,
.independent of its effect as a condiment,
salt has two distinct offices j ste in
butter-makins, vt: 1st, to remove the
butter milk as thoroughly as possible
from the pores of the butter? and, 2d, to
render harmless what Cannot thus be re
moved. The salt attract water from the
buttermilk that it comes in contact with,
and also takes up the milk-st'ar. It thus
effects iipirliftt siratiou of the constit
uents bt the buttermilk. At the same
time it penetrates the latter and converts
it into a strong brine, which renders de
composition and rancidity difficult if not
lmpossibla. Pugar has Ihe same effect M
salt, but is more costly, ad h better in
It Seed hardly be stated that the salt
must be as "pure as possible. It must be
perfectly white, must dissolve completely
in water to a clear linuid, vnroeo'ed by
any turbidity, w'thotit froth or sediment,
most Se absolutely odorless, of a pure salt
taste, without bitterness, and in a modcr
ately dry room must remain free from per
ceptible moisture. No other ingredient
than salt is required for the preservation
or flavoring ot butter, and no other should
be employed Pnder any circumstances.
Butter-makers in the vicinity of large
towns should seek out regular customers,
for their product, in which case it may be
put up in balls, or any other form adapted
to the demand. " Philadelphia prints,"
which have acquired a world-wide reputa
tion, are pound .balli, with a figure pressed
upon the top. They are usually inclosed
in a white linen napkin, and packed in a
cedar, zinc lined chest with ap irtmcnts at
each end for ice, to keep it hard while be
ing transpor ed to market and retailed
Other peculiar forms are adopted in other
parts of the country to suit the diminds
or whims of purchftscrt.
For the gVeat mass of butter-makers the
wooelen tub, holding from 50 to l'JO pounds,
must ever be the most economical form of
package. In the vicinity of New York
city, heavy return pails, of the best white
oak, with thick covers haying the owner's
name branded upon them, arc used and
re used, year after year. In some parts of
the West miserably poor oaken tubs are
employed, which affect the butter very in
juriously; in other localities ashen the
are the favorites; while in Northern Ver
mont the most approved tubs are the
spruce. Spruce is, unquestionably, the
least liable of a'l timber to affect the
fUvor of the butter injuriously, while it is
generally believed that for long keeping
aud much exposure good white oak is pre
ferable. Stone and earthen jars and
crocks are sometimes used, but we do not
recommend them. LUihcluird's JlutUr
Ridding Young Chickens of Vermin.
It is mirch easier to prevent chickens
from becoming infested with parasites by
sprinkling the setting hen and her nest
with powdered sulphur before the eggs
arc hatched, than to get rid of the. pests
afterwards. If the chicks (ire still wi'.h
their mother, apply kerosene in moderate
quantities to the feathers of hep whole
body near the skin, particularly to the
wings and other parts that come in con
tact with the chickens. Then go through
the same ojieration with each chicken
separately, paj''ug especial attention to the
bead, which is Uie part the vermin prefbr.
If the chickens are quite young, do not
allow the kerosene to touch the skin, if it
can be avoided, but aim at slightly moist
ening the feathers near the roots. Jf care
is not taken, the sUin may be badly in
jured, and chickens hive been killed by
overdoing the matter. Blindness will re
sult if the kerosene touches the eyes of
the birds. Unc application, it thorough,
will destroy every insect Another remeiiy
is to dust sulphur freely upon every pop
tion of the skin of old and young. It is
as efficacious as the kerosene, unless tlpy
immediately rullle their feathers and shake
it off. To lessen the risk of this, it is best
to apply it at night when they are quiet,
and it will do lis work before morning.
It will not injure the chickens in the least
anplied in any quantity. Uearth and

The Codling Moth.
The following, relating to the codling
moth and how to destroy it, are extracts
from an essay read before the Berrin
County tMich.) Horticultural Society, by
D. N. Brown, of St Joseph t
The codling moth is a gray, dirty look
ing miller, about three-f'jUrms of an inch
in leneth 'y-quick in ker aioVements
and when still her wmg3 he close to her
body. Early in the month of June she
makes her appearance, and may be seen
by jarring the limbs of trees. She makes
many aojular motions while descending
to the ground, and conceals herself in
When the apple reaches the size of a
hazel nut, she deposits her egg in the
down oC the blossoms, whee it hatches
in a few days if the weather is warm. Im
mediately the young larva begins to cut
its way toward to the center of the fruit
to feed (toon its flesh and seed. . If, how
ever, the end of the fruit is too hard, the
larva wSJ leave and enter zoiue more ien
der part It is common for them to leave
one apple and enter another; and thus a
single wort" may destroy a la'ge rmantity.
There are continuous and consecutive
crops of these insects from early summer
until Jate in thi fnU, or until the apple
cmp is gathered. They increase rapidly
as the warm weather advances.
' In the spring their commencement is
but small, owing to the woodpecker, and
many other birds which prey ttpon the
larva whilst slightly protected in its silken
case, and deposited about stumps, hollow
weeds, and especially under the scales of
dead bark on the apple tree. On examin
ation you will see many of these
scales perforated by birds, who subsist
during winter upon insects. I have often
wondered to see With what precision they
strike their game. When you see a small
hole through one of these old scales, pull
it off and notice the accuracy with which
this natural mechanic hits the cocoon
which contained his morning meal
JIany apples containiuir the hmu' of this
moth ate barreled, aud you will often find
a large number of these cocoons about
the hoops and joints, which should be
carefully destroyed. Should you mane any
of your lighted rooms a storehouse for ap
ples in the spring, you may find your win
dews dotted with this miller. Owing to
the many methods by which this larvie in
winter ia destroyed,, the early brood is
smalL These, however, deposit their eggs,
which hatch iuto a perfect moth in about
thirty days, which in their turn are ready
to make in the apple a second deposite of
eggs, which, as we are not able to ascer
tain the number of eggs each female can
lay, we uiajf safely conclude that this crop
can out-number from fifty to one hundred
times the spring crop. Wc have now
reached about the middle of July, or the
first of August, when the fruit bitten by
the first crop of the larvta are falling on
the ground, and some of the early vane
tics beginning to ripen. A tur crop ot
early fruit may be expected, f they es

ter, indicating that another brood ot th.
insect has commenced its work of destruc
tion. You will also see small red spots on
the fair, perfect fruit, showing that another
brood of these larvte are cutting their way
through to the completion of their work.
Thus one brood succeeds another, until, in
many cases, nearly our entire crop of win
ter fruit is pierced with holes end lies
withered on the ground.
The worm, when small, is dark, aud has
a black head ; when about half an inch
long it moults, after which it grows rapid
ly and soon completes its work of de
struction ; when of fill size, the worm
yellow or reddish, with a copper colored
head prompted by instinct leaves the
apple and hunts a place of concealment to
wind into a cocoon, and pass its transpor
tation to the perfect moth.,
The larviu is seldom seen outside of the
fruit by daylight ; but in the dark hours,
it is quick iu it3 motions, and travils from
one apple to another; it travels up and
down the branches and trunk, either to
enter new imit or a place of concealment
When it reaches maturity, It hunts a hid
ing place to pass from . the worm to the
perfect moth ; a period, in very hot weather,
which does not exceed ten or twelve day?.
Should the worm fall with the apple to
the ground, it will on Tearhlhg hSatttrlty,
in most eases return to me tree.
Now we invite the attention of apple
orchardists to a simple, practical method
of exterminating this pest from any given
locality, at an expense which will not ex
ceed fl 5J per acre, Abont tbe first cf
June, take a wisn of rfgs, cotton or wool

and afford concealment say about the
size of a sleeve doubled and place these

ras frotH a irce, for some of the worms
will be attached to the bark, place an end
m the jaws of the wringer, and run the
rags through ; every worm is annihilated ;
alter this replace the rags.
This work shonl l be repeated every ten
or twelve days daring the season, ana un
til the fruit is gathered, varying according
to the heat of the season. The ragsshould
not be used unless the wringer is also; for
unless the worm is destroyed, you have
only given it a comfortable and convenient
concealment, close to the favorite fruit it
Various niettiods aire recommended to
aid the orchardist to defend hi oaself against
this most formidable destroyer; among
them is that which turns our orchards in
to hog-yards. This is not practicable; for
many of our orchards are open to corn and
potato fields, and to our strawberry and
vegetable gardens. I have for the lust two
or three years considered it as necessary to
destroy the apple worm as to look after
any other interest We often find from
fifty to one hundred at a time in our sim
ple rag traps. One of my neighbors killed
from a single tree over fot'r hr.ndred in
one season. Another of tHj neighbors,
with xbe rag traps-, slaughtered, in his
orchard of a few hundred trees, from fif

Agricultural Societies and Fairs.
No agricultural community should be
without its Agricultural Society. An or
ganization having for its object mutual as
sistance and instruction should be of in
terest everywhere. To assist in the form
ation of such co-operative societies, we
give a few hints as To the mode of bring
ing them into existence, and some of the
advantages which my bo derived from
As nothing can be done without money,

Laws exist in all the States for the en
couragement of the?o enterprises and it is
only necessary to follow them, in the mode
of organization and incorporation set
forth In cvh instance-. The?e societies
sh?"'d httva for their objects, in addition
to the nsual exhibitions, the introduction
of improved stock, farm machinery, seeds
and agricultural literature. Kach one
should aim to possess one or more thor
ough bred male animals, together with
mowing, reaping and threshing machines,
and a well-selected libiary for the use of
those of it meUiber who cannot afford to
purchase for themselves. An annual ex
hibition should be held at some convenient
period, to which the pu'l!c should be in
vited to bring their stock, seeds and speci
mens of fruit and crops for competition.
The funds necessary to furnish the prizes
should be raised by a small admission fee,
and to make ther'e secure, they should be
guaranteed by the members of the associa
tion or some of the wealthier of them
Once put iuto operation, experience
will soon show what is wanting and
suggest the remedy. If an exhibition
is all that can be accomplished at first,
a good commencement will have been
made. Above all things, get plenty of
exhibitors, and if the stock does not show
better than the seven lean kine dreamed
of by Jharaob, well and good, there is
something to Mnit from. Rich yar Will
improve on the preceding one, and having
an ideal in view, every farmer in the
county will endeavor to attain it We
remember the first exhibition in a county

Blooded stock of any kind, but siich was
the impetuit given Id improvement by the
spirit of competition engendered, that in
live years from that time there were ex
hibited three kinds of pure-bred, horned
stock, five of pure-bred sheep, and two of
hogs; while the grades had already be

to improvement, it would be well to enlist
