. tke Valley Farter, the resnlUo which tended
strongly in favor of planting the keroela from
the luxe or butt end of the Mr, and noticing that
the editor of that Joaroal eeemed to think that
if the bntt kernel do really produce the strong

perim enter aaeerted, It moat be owing to their
neater aise; that u the old see to tb prlict
. pal feeder of the the young plant in iu early
stage, It weald be bat reasonable to conclude
the largest kernels would produce the strongest
growth at first, and that this would naturally
lead to early maturity, we were lead to inquire
whether it is really so, that the kernels at tbe
batt are larger than those in the middles
Thinking that fanners knew more than ethers
boat such matters, we asked several their
opinion. One thought tbe middle kernels were
largest and beat formed; another thought there
eoold be little difference between the batt aad
the middle; a third said he did not knew, bad
not obserred, and could giro no opinion about it.
We appealed to the scales, weighing accurately
with the scales of an apothecary near by, twelve
kernels from the bntt of a well-formed ear, as
' many from the middle, and as many from the
tip, eadeavering to select average kernels from
aeh place. The result was that twelve kernels
from tbe butt weighed six grains more than
tweve from the middle; and twelve from the
middle weighed twelve grains more than twelve
from the tip; making a difference between
the batt and the tip of II grains. We tried
the experiment with a second ear, and found
the difference nearly tbe same, but a fraction
greater. The butt kernels, then, are larger aad
ere solid, and weigh mere than from any other
part of the ear; and as it is an admitted fact,
that ths seed in all eases furnishes the first food
for tbe young plant, it seems but resonable that
the largest seed should produce the largest
plant; and if the plaat from a large seed gets
. tbe best start, it is certainly not unnatural to sup
pose it may matare its fruit earlier. A at
present advised, if we had twice as mush seed
eon as we wanted, we would plant the butt half
Of the ears, or if we had three times as much as
we wished to plant, we would use the butt to
one-third of the ear; aad in the meantime we
1 would plant some middle end some tip kernels
: by themselves, and keep a look-out which produ
ces the earliest and largest crop. In expensive
experiment aad careful observation of results

of his own doings, and an ear open to the re-
' ports of his fellow laborers, and he will be ever

and a terong way to do everything, and that the

l ; Chinch Bage Wheat aad Cora.
EnrroiiPaiiui Fasjibb: These little pest
almost destroyed the entire crop in this locality
last season. I noticed that when a stalk of corn
eame ap among the grain and this is often the
case when it is sown on com land immediate
ly about the stalk the grain matured perfectly
sad was not injured by the bugs.
My theory is this: When grain commences
te ripen, the sap leaves the bottom ef the stem
and ascends np. The bugs do not like to follow
it, for wheu they gat up too high on the stem,
it becomes too hot for them. They therefore
leave the wheat and attaek the corn, leaving
euffieieat supply of sap in the wheat stalk to
mature tbe grain perfectly. I have also notie
ed, that when wheat waa sown alongside s field
of corn, there was a strip not injured in the
Now, for a remedy for the chinch bug in

in the spring a soon as the ground will permit
About the first of June take a small beli-tongued

To Have Peache Every Year.
Procure your tree grafted upon the wild plum
took. The tree partake of the nature of the
plant, being hardy, and will never winter kill,
aad patting out late in the spring, will never be
injured by the freet, and is a certain prevenu
tiv against the working of the peach grub,
while the natural life time of tbe tree U beyond
that of oar own, s that yon may depend apon
peache every year, and for a long period of
time, without the destructive or discouraging
influencee attending the growth of the common
peach. They can be obuiaed from bO to 75
ccbU per tree, and you had better pay five times
the amount and to obuin them, and be certain
of peache every year. Try it, and our word

Old, But Good.
Bin F. was making a journey in a stage-
coach, over the hilly roads of New Hampshire,
and amused himself on the way by frequent re
sorts to the contents of a mysterious black bot
tle which he had with him. Suddenly the ceaeh
came in contact with a large stone, which, with-
out doing any other damage, deprived Billy of
hi equilibrium, and down he rolled upon the

Swallowed a Hole.
The other day, Jimmy, four year old, found
on of those bone-rimmed circles, which, I be
lieve, ladies call eyeleU, and while playing in
the garden, swallowed it The family were in
the house, busily engaged with a work on ety
mology, when Jimmy ran in with hi month
wide open, and hie eye distended to their ut
most capacity. His mother caught him by the
arms, and trembling with that deep anxiety
which only a mother can feel, inquired
"What is the mat UrT What has happened?'
"Water!" gasped little Jimmy, nearly cared
to death.
It waa brought him, when after drinking co
piously, be exclaimed:
" Oh, mother, I swallowed a hole!"
"Swallowed a hole, Jimmy!"
" Yes, mother, swallowed a hole with a piece

A Big Kettle.
The Burlington Sentinel tells the followinr
joke of Captain Lot Chamberlin, of Lake Cham-
plain notoriety, who is a wit, a good fellow, and
a live Republican:
The captain was coming " np" from the city,
t'other night, on tbe train, and casually remark
ed to a crowd of listeners, (the CspUia is al
ways crowded,) that he had laUly seen, in New
York City, the largest potash kettle ever cast
in the world. It waa immeasurable was six
teen incnes mice, soim cast iron, tne ear
weighing eighteen hundred pounds apiece.
"What on earth was the object for such an
extensive kettle!" quoth an inquiring greeny.
"Te dissolve the Union in!" said the Cap
tain, very solemnly, looking at hi watch, aad
asking what tim o day it will k yesUrday,
and what o'clock it was to-morrow.

A few day sine, a good old lady of Boston,
meeting a farmer In the street, oa a load of hay,
inquired if it waa for sale. Oa being answered
ia the affirmative, she asked him to torn hi
team around, and drive to her husband' yard,
aome quarter of a mile distent Her request
was complied with, and after reaching th bare-
yard, th old lady informed him that ah only
wanted a cent's worth of hay for bar hen nest,
and that while k was throwing it off, ahe would

A New Receipt for Sleep la
Our friend the Thakoor, also visited a, and
he exeased the aoa-appearance of hi Bttl eon
on the ground that he waa asleep under hi wa
terfall. I had almost omitted to meatioo the
eorioM habit of the hill people to which thi
phrase ef the Thakoor' relate. Whenever a
woman wish to pother child to sleep aha take
it to one of the numerou place for this par
poe, which ar all over the mountain-si dee,
wherever there ia water. They consist of a
abed, or sheds, la which there are stone troughs
filled from the running stream; and from the
troughs are little pipes made of reeds, or hoi-

low stems of trcco, which spout, oat water with
a gentle trickling fall, under which the child'
bead la placed at the distance of a few inehee.
The effect is almost Immediate. Tbe child
dose iU eye aad iU month and fall into a
profound, sweet and healthful deep, which en
dure o long as it is left under the water-apoat.
I have seen dosena of children thus lying fast
asleep; aad a far a I eoold ascertain, no evil
effect whatever can be attributed to the
practice. It certainly seem aa admirable
preparation against cold in the bead; aad if a
devoted mother would only make the expert
meat in thi country and it were found m
ful, she would be regarded as a blessing to her

Techaleal Word.
Ia reading, we frequently come across words
with which w are onacqaainted, and which ar
necessary to give as a foil idea of the subject.
To obviate thi difficulty, w eive a defiaitiea
of some of the more common word:
A firkin of butter, 56 B.
A sack ef coal, 124
A trees of straw, 36
A tav of hamp, 39 "
A sack of fleur, 98 -
A quintal, 100 -
Apiggotofsteel, 120 M
A truss of hay, 56 "
Abash, 80 bosh. ,
A kilderkin, 18 gala.
A barrel, 36 "
A hogshead, 56 -
A puncheon, 64 "
English prices -current often speak of the pri-
ce of wheat per quarter to reduce thi to bar-
rsls, multiply the price by seven, and divide,
and it will give the price, at the earne rate, by
th barrel. Thus: If wheat is quoted at 56 shil
lings a quarter, multiply 56 by 7, aad divide by
19, and it give th price, 33 shilling 8 pence a
