POET 11 y._
From )he Aldiuc.
To know tV\t 0*0 hear; could comprehend,
O?c KWll that would never read you rrmiss,
In a word, to possess a perfect friend,
la there any wealth that equals thin?
I whirl along in the flying train,
T'io cloud* flt by in the windy ?kies;
The frozen river's a wido, white plain^
Whose glare and glitter affront my "eyes.
My eyes and heart are sore with the sense
Ofjgmjtiiig words that were less than kjnd,
From my friend no prompt to resent ollense,
When never a shadow hod crossed my mind.
When the idle speech that was answered so
Wn? only n jest that was meant for cheer,
And to hide the feoH??gn I would not show
The passionate pain, and tho yearning year,
He ought to hare known. Hut that is the worst,
That he didn't, and never will understand :
This blow to-day?it is not the first,
jtfor will be the last I shall have at Ids hand.
I have had my dream of a friend?alas,
Th?t dreams like these should be false as fair;
But, indeed, if it ever sliould come to pass,
It would leave too little to do or to bear.
That dream fulfilled wbuld sufliec for me :
Hope and eflbrl. and all desire
* jvorltl that is, and the world to be,
Would seem as chall'to a tongue of lire.
If ever my heart that has starved so long
Should find its manna, and take its fi'l?
Better to sutler, perhaps, and be strong,
To wait in patience and miss it still.
For what is life but a Hying train,
Thnt bears us on to our journey's end ;
And njftcr its burden of loss and ppin
I may discover and win my friend.

Mr, Editor:?I was pleased to see
the response of "B," in the Times of
September 18th, to iny enquiries, "What
is the cheapest and best method to un
der drain our lands?" Will "B," give
ua the cost of laying his drains, his pro
cesses a very simple one and seems to
mc to bo. u cheap and durable one, I
hold that tuiderdraining is the founda
tion of all good and successful farming'
,'4 What, are farmers doing about the
oat crop of 1874. I hope that a much
broader area will be sown than has been
hitherto done. Don't select your poor
est lands for oats. It is now full time oats
were in the ground, if satisfactory yields
'i 'Whnt has been done in the matter of
Hay. Splendid year to grow it il not to
mnke it. I fear that proper attention
lias ?not been given to the making of it.
Hay after being cut and once wilted by
sun or air, should never be allowed to
become wet by rain or dew, it should be
gathered into small heaps, (termed in
hay pinking countries, hay cocks) in
the evening or before rain and opened
out next morning or first fair day. und
as soon as dry, hauled into barn c r put!
into hay stacks. It .should be cut when
in full bloom, if left loo long it becomes
?bous and loses much of its nutritious
qualities. "Why should we buy hay pro
duced in Maine, Massachusetts and other
Northern States when we can make an
abundance on our own farms and as I
believe of a superior quality. Let us
mnke it ourselves, and cease to be de
pendent on the Xorth for Hay.
Who will exhibit the best bale ol hay
at our coming fair, and who will be the
Itichy fellow to win the premium for the
greatest yield of hay on one acre. Wo
"Well; whilst on long forago what
about pea vine hay, corn cured for long

articles will he well represented tit the

the fair grouuds for our annual fair, nil

for every department, "Will our farmers
sustain the managers of tbo Fair, by be

rclntivo to farming ? "Will they sacri
fice n litt.lo time' and money to naako
this tho bannor county of the Stnto
in nil that pertains to agricultural pro
gross and i mproveiuents. I need not
appeal to the fair daughters of our coun
ty, they always do(their duty, beautiful
ly and well. I only ask them to urgo
their husbnnds, sweathecrts and brothers
to do theirs.

To Prevent Sweet Potatoes fkom
Rotting.?I have noticed for the last
few years, various plans for preventing
swccL potatoes from rotting after being
gathered and banked or housed. It was
my father's plan to wait until the frost
had killed the vines, and dig on a good
open day?throwing in heaps, and af
terwards dividing the large from the
small?turning all about?then hauled
up to n place rather sloping, and tho
earth dug out to hard foundation?pota
toes put dowu on the ground and cov
ered with corn stalks long enough to go
from bottom of trench to top of hank,
with small oucs to fill up cracks, so that
you could uot see the potatoes at all,
theo commence at bottom with good,
thick, layer of dirt, so there would be
good thickness of dirt all the way up?
(using new straw or bark) leaving open
ing at top, and good shelter over to cover
entire bank. I never knew of auy pota
toes being lost under any circumstances,
managed ns above. Now let all make
trial of this plan, and sec for themselves,
if net a good plan.?McDuffie, in the
