One of tbe nicest places for grow

little conservatory built outside a
window If there is a balcony
just inclose that with glass, and
have one square to open at the top,
instead of the side, as that causes
too much draught when the win

A Profitable Peice of Ground.
The folio lilt? ia taken from o
Massachusetts Spy, communicated
to that paper by WLliam Eaton of
"I pbuted this year three qnan
ters ol an acre of ground. I plant,

potatoes, and raised eighty bushi

bushels for $130,50. The other

corn ana corn shocks, $11; peas,
beans and beefs, $15. About bept.

with turnips. Twoithirds of them
were fed to the fat cattle; with tops
and ail on, and cut thirty-one bush,

been $62 worth

gave the ground in the first place
thorough ploughing, eight inch.
deep, and then a thorough har

ways with a small horse plough,
