Bavo been writing for that department,
and I think its beginning to bo time to

all who intend to plant a crop and tend

Editor, is not what it is cracked up to be
by some people. If wo plant a crop, we
must certainly work it, and if we tond it

Your's &c. Inquisitive.
, Balky Horses.
Balking is a serious defect in a very
useful animal, nnd it connot bo overcome
by whipping or swearing at him. His
brain docs not seem capable of entertain
ing but one thought at a timo, and the
stubborn resolve not to move seems to be
uppermost in it. Therefore you must
endeavor to givo him anewsulject of |
thought, and thereby change the direc
tion of his brain.
The simple trick of putting a; small
quantity of earth or gravel, taken from
tho road-side, upou his tongue, will suffice
to turn his attention to the new kind of
fodder offered to him. Now cluck to him
hut don' strike him, and almost before
he is aware of it he ia walking along and
and soon trots as fast as i? needful. This
is a remedy much in use on the western
plains, where teaming is employed to per
form.a vast amount of labor, and Imlky
horses are quito a common trouble. I
have bccu it work to perfection on the
plains of Colorado, when whipping and
profa'nity were utterly ineffectual; a very
small quantity of earth and line gravel
mado its ?mark directly. Kindness will
always produce a great effect upon horses,
and every driver should learn that plens
aut words, and tones arc. of much greater
use in making his hones obedient than
thewliiplash, mingled with harsh oaths
and car-splitting tones. s. o. j.
In Onion, is Strength.
I am quite ashamed to take people into
my garden and have them notice the ad
sence of onions. It is very marked. In
onion is strength; nnd a garden without
itsdacks flavor. The onion in its satin
wrappings is among tho most beautiful of
vegetables, and it is the only ono that
retirements the essence of things It cnu
aluipgl, ,be said to have a soul. You take
off coat after coat, and the onion is still
there: and when tho last ono is removed,
who darn (-.".y that the onion itself is des
troy^, though you can weep over its de
parted spirit? I knew that there is sup
pos?X t? bcioi prejudice against the onion
hut I think there is rather a cowardice
hi rpTOt. v
I doubt not that all men and women*
love tho.onioii; but few confess tbeir
iovdl. Affection for it is concealed. Good
New Engl?nders are as shy owning it as
th^'lrfc bf talking about religion. Some
people havo days on which they cat on
ion?what you might call "retreats," or
their "Thursdays." Tho act is in tho
nature of a religious ceremony, an Elcu
Bininn:mystery; not a breath of it must
get abroad. On that day they seo no
coinpnny; they deny the kiss of greeting
to the dearest friond; they retire within
themselves-and hold communion with
one of the most pungent and penetrating
manifestations of tho moral vegetable
world. Happy is said to bo tho family
which can 'call onions together. They arc
for the time being separate from tho
world and have, a harmony of aspiration
Let them become apostles of the onion;
let them preach it to tbeir fellows, and
circulate tracts of it iu the form of seeds.
In the onion is tho bopo of universal
brotherhood. If all men will cat onions
at all tiriKR they will comenito a univer
sal sympathy. Look at Italy. I hopo I
am not mistaken as to tho cause of her
unity. It was the Reds who preached
the jjospel which ?rode .it possrblo. All
tho reds of Europe, all the sworn devo
tees of the mystic Mary Ann eat of the
common vcgitnble. Thoir oaths arc
strong with it. It is the food also of the
common people of Italy. All tho social
atmosphere of that delicious laud is laden
with it. Its odor is a practical democracy.
In the churches all are alike;- there is
ono faith., one - smell. Tho entrance of
of Victor Emamiel into Rome is only tho
pompous proclamation of a unity which
garlic had already accomplished; and yet
we, who boast of ourademocracy,*ect on
