Agriculture In England.
The British agricultural returns just
published, show a decrease of 57,800
acres in the total cultivated area of the
United Kingdom, representing a money
loss to the country of at least a quarter
of million sterling per annum, unless
recovered in approaching years. The
chief cause of this step backward to
ward barbarism seems to be the way in
which fenced meadow land has been
left to become, technically, "unculti
vated," by reason of the fences, on be
broken down or becoming rotten,
not being renewed. To how pitiable
an exhaustion of agricultural capital
this points we need hardly say. Other
discouraging features are a decline in
the number of milch cows, a considera
ble decrease in corn-growing, some
partial abandonment even of root
crops and a steadily increasing depend
ence on the mere grazing farming of
poor and backward estates. The in
creased acreage devoted to fruit-grow
ing, especially bush fruit, is a good
sign so also is an increase in the num

Every thing went on smoothly in

days until, returning home one evn

in the following terms:
"Why. Edith, how could yon be so
extravagant? You must have been

Tor your poor relatives, in addition to
paying our household txpemes. Your

stating that you are indented to theSt.

earliest convenience, to make
good the amount."
"No such thing," she replied, "I
still havo plenty of money in the
bank, and will prove it to your satis
faction to-morrow morning."
A visit was made to the bank, and
the lady was confronted with a formid
able array of figures and vouchers,
confirming the cashier's estimate of
her indebtedness. She remonstrated
that a gross injustice had been done
her, and offered in evidence ten blank
checks which remained in her check
book, and argued that her balance
could not be exhausted until these
blank checks had been used. It was
in vain that the cashier tried to con
vince her that one check was all that
was necessary at any time to draw out
her entire balance. The banker, how
