Mr. Editok:?I suppose that raauy of]
your readers, no doubt, think that I have
been asleep all this time; your readers
roe mistaken. Although. I have raid no
thing, that is no proof of their belief. I
have noticed iu the Agricultural columns
of the Times that none of the fanners
Iinvo been writing for that department,
and I think its beginning to bo time to
commence. February has come in, and
all who intend to plant a crop aud tend
it, should commence now. Fanning, Mr.
Editor, is not what it is cracked up to be
by some people. If we plant a crop, we
must certainly work it, and if we tend it
good, wo will surely reap the fruits of our
By tho "sweat of the brow" \vc must
gain our livelihood, but unless \vc take
advantugc of every short turn nnd think
more than we do it will bo found a hard
task to gain a living, that way.
Your's &c. Inquisitive.
Balking is a serious defect in a very
useful animal, and it connot be overcome
by whipping or swearing at him. His
brain docs not seem capable of entertain
ing but one thought at a time, and the
stubborn resolve not to move seems to be
uppermost in it. Therefore you must
endeavor to give him a new sul jeet 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
the road-side, upon his tongue, will suffice
to turn his attention to the new kind of
fodder offered to him. Now cluck to him
but don'strike him, and almost before
ho is aware of it be ia walking along and
aud soon trpts 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 balky
horses arc quite a common trouble. I
have seen it work to perfection on the
plains of Colorado, when whipping and
profanity were utterly ineffectual; a very
smnll quantity of earth and fine gravel;
mado its-mark directly. Kindness will
always produce n great effect upon horses,
and every driver should learn that pleas
ant words and tones are of much greater
use in making his homes obedient than
tho whiplash, 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 nd
sence of onions. It is very marked. In
onion is strength; and a garden without
its lacks flavor. The onion in its satin
wrappings is among the most beautiful of
vegetables, and it is the only ono that
represents the essence of things It can
ahnest be said to have a soul. You take
off coat after coat, and the onion is still
there: and when the last one is removed,
who darj) fay that the onion itself is des
troyed, though you can weep over its de
parted spirit? I know that there is sup
postitt t? l)C a prejudice against the onion
but I think there is rather a cowardice
I doubt not that all men and women'
love the.oifl?h; but few confess their
lovtit. Affection for it is concealed. Good
New Engl?nders arc as shy owning it as
t hey ark of talking about religion. Some
pcoplo have days on which they cat on
ion? what you Might call "retreats," or
tbeir "Thursdays." The ac: is in the
nature of n religious ceremony, an Elcti
sinian.mystery; not a breath of it must
get abroad. On that day they sec no
company; they deny tho kiss of greeting
to the dearest friend; they retire within
themselves und hohl communion with
one of the most pungent and penetrating
manifestations of the moral vcgctablo
world, Happy is said to be tho family
which can cat onions logi Iber. They are
for the time being scpnrnlo from the
world and have a harmony of aspiration
Let them become apostles of tho onion;
let them preach it to their fellows, und
circulate tracts of it iu the form of seeds;
Iu the onion is the hope of universal
brotherhood. If all men will cut onions
at all thn:s they will come into o univer
sal sympathy. Look at Italy. I hope I
am not mistaken as to the cause of her
unity. It was the Reds who preached
the gospel whieb made jt possible. All
tbo reels of Europe, all the sworn devo
tees of the mystic Mary Ann eat of the
common vcgitable. Their oaths are
strong witli it. It is the food also of the
common people of Italy. All tbo social
atinosirhero of that delicious land is laden
with it. Its* odor is a practical democracy.
In tliu churches all aro alike; there is
one faith, ouo smell. The entrance of
of Victor Emamiel into Rome is only the
pompous proclamation of a unity which
garlic had already accomplished-; and yet
we, who boast of ourademocraey,*eat on
