Wbiui the wheat crop of the past season
has not been bo large as in former seasons. still the price is 80 low at the West as to bo utterly unrein an era tive to the farmers. In the Middle and Eastern States, where the grain is shipped to a final -market, the prices are not so bad. In our own market, red Western sells for $1.33*1.36; Pennsylvania and Delaware red for J1.3Ta1.39. In New York Western red and amber Western sells for f1.38a1.40; in Chicago 89Ja90; in St. l.ouis prices range from 80 to $1.30 and in Cincinnati, sl.o6*s 1.10. But, in the great grain producing districts of lowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin, where the only means of reaching the market, by the farmer, ore his own teams and the rough roads, the price ob ained for bis wheat fails to pay him for the trouble of hauling. The lowa Free Press says that in Cass coonty, '-many farmers intend, unless the price of wheat should come up to a living standard, to feed their wheat to cattle sod hogs for market. But very little wheat has been sold, and the prospects are that none will be sold, except in compulsory cases." In Wisconsin complaints are nu merous and loud. Farmers dispose of their wheat for forty, fifty and sixty cents, and do cot receive sufficient money for their produce to purchase supplies, at the rates at which other things are held. VI e would not be sur prised if the trouble should be found to LaTe been caused, lis it has been in former years, by a Chicago wheat ring, which runs down the market at the West, until the farmer is forced to sell at ruinous prices, and when the crop is all secured in the clutches of the ring, they operate for and hold the grain until a rise in the market is secured, when fortunes are made by speculators, at the expense of the farmer. Some of the farmers who can afford to, appear to be pursuing the only plan to defeat this move, and that is by holding their crops for the present. Of the English grain crop of the season just closed, the Mark Lane Express remarks: ' With regard to the late crop, we have in the different results on different farms additional proofs, if any were wanting, that high farm ing—which includes under draining and deep culture—will, to a large extent, counteract or neutralize the effects of an unfavorable season. It is a fact that on most of the lands highly cultivated the crop has been good, and on some farms nearly equal to that of last year; while on lands tilled and treated in the ordi nary way, and und r aincd, there will be a con siderable deficiency."— Phil'a. Exchange. KEEPING A~FARM JOURNAL. No doubt there are farmers who commence business with a determination to keep a dai ly record of their operations on the farmland the results of them. This Tesolve is carried into execution for a time, but after a while intermissions in these jottings occur, and finally cease altogether. This delinquency does not prove that the gractice is not a good one, and as an incentive to perseverence, we would cite a case of a man who commenced j farm life bareheaded, hut eventually attained j great wealth—a result he attributed in a great measure to a daily journalizing of his farm operations—a practice kept up for forty-five j years, and not then discontinued. These daily memoranda were made in books ] of convenient size, each containing the re cords of a single year, and when full proper ly labelled and filed away for future reference when desirable. They contained the number I of fields farmed each year, the amount of labor bestowed, the actual yield, the names of the parties employed each day, the daily receipts for stock and farm products sold, money paid out, and for what purpose, the character of the weather, together with such reflections as the current news of the day ! supplied. This journal was uniformly writ ten up each night just before retiring to rest, but when the party was absent, as was occa sionally the case, it was the duty of the per son in charge to make the necessary memor anda each evening. These records were often appealed to, to decide disputed points in regard to the weath er and crops of particular seasons, and not unfrequently taken before the courts for the purpose of determining the date of particular transactions. At first these nightly records may prove rather irksome, but if the practice is kept up perscveriug'y for two or three years j it becomes a habit pleasureable rather than ! otherwise, and profitable to the parties who steadily pursue it.- American Farmer. KEEPING WINTER PEARS. No fruit is worse treated than the la,e au tumn and winter pears. Thev are generally gathered before their time, and then kr.pt in a dry atmosphere. What wonder is it that fruit which should be melting and delicious, turns out to be h shriveled, tough and taste less thing? Most late varieties hang on well, and should be allowed to remain until there is danger of hard frosts: they are to be care fully picked when dry. placed in boxes or barrels, and kc-pt as cool as possible. It is not a good plan to take them to the cellar until the weather becomes so cold as to en danger their freezing. When in the celier, the temperature must be kept as low as pos sible without dangerjof frost. "Do not mix varieties iu the same package. The different sorts Lave each iheir own time for maturing. A frequent examination will show how the process of ripening is going on, and the slow er this progresses the finer the fruit is likely to be. \\ hea the proper changes have taken y.lace within the fruit, it is indicated by a change iu the color of the skin. When this commences the fruit may be taken in small quantities at a time to a warm room, to ' fin ish off.'' We have seen even the despised and much abused Vicar of Winkfield, when treated in this manner, prove itself a most acceptable pear.— Exchange. THERE is no household duty that is a sub ject of more annoyance to housewives gener ally than that of keeping paint clean, and yet the operation is a very simple and easy one. Ali that is necessary is to procure a liftle whiting on a plate, some clean warm water, and a flannel cloth. Dip the cloth in the va ter, wring it nearly dry, then take as much whiting as will adhere to it, and with this wet the painted surface. All the grease and dirt will beiostantly removed: it sbouM then be wasbed off' with clean water, and rubbed dry with a chamois skin. It is said by those who j have tried this method, that paint thus clean ed looks nearly as well as new. It does not injure even the most delicate color. Water pbook Cloth.— Cloth, it is stated, can be made proof against water by immers ing it (afterward drying) in a bucket of soft water, with which half a pound of sugar of lead and a like amount of pulverized alum have been mixed. This is good news for peopie who do not fancy the weight, or the odor, or the impervfousness to air of India rubber garments. Hiram Wooim: vr says in his book about trotting horses, that a pull on both reins will not bring up a horse when he has broken from a trot. A firm, quick pull should be given on ore rein, letting the other give a little, as much as yoa want the horse's head thrown out of line. Dr. McClcrk informs the Practical Farm er that he has never known the following prescription to fail of curing coiic in horses: "Aromatic spirits of ansmonia, half an ounce; Laudanum, one and a half ounces; mix wilh one pint of water, and administer. If not re. j lieved, repeat the dose. pTmmaflw*. WHY is a dog's tail like old age? because it is in-firm. Wnv is a dog's tail like the dress of a dan dy ? Because it finishes off a puppy. Wht is a dog's tail like the heart of a tree? Because it is furthest from the bark. Wby is a dog biting his own tail like a good measure ? Because he makes both ends meet. What is the difference between a misar m&u of all work and a dog's tail ? The one leads a dog's life, and the other follows it. WHAT is the difference between Queen Victoria and a dog's tail ?

A VicxsßCEO gentleman was found in a neighbor's chicken coop, with the head of a pullet sticking out of a hole in his tall hat. On being arked how the feathered songster got there, he said "the blasted thing must have crawled up my trowsers leg." He was reprimanded with a boot. A MAGISTRATE, censuring some boys for loitering in the street, asked: "If everybody were to stand in the streets, how could any body get hjlA '"Why, by standing aside, to be sure, and letting "em pass!" said one of the boys. "Any one but a justice ot the peace would know tbat." The Justice wilted. A RAW Jonathan who bad been gazing at a garden in the vicinity of N*w York, in which were several marble statues, exclaimed: "Just see what a waste! Here's no less thau six scare-crows in this little ten-foot patch, and any one on 'em would keep the crows from a five acre lot." "SsVENTr-gjVE cents per gal. !" exclaimed Mrs. Partington on looking over the price conent. "Why bless me, what is the world coming to, when the gals are valued at sev enty five cents!" The old lady pulled off her spectacles, threw down the paper and went into a brown study on the want of a proper appreciation of the true value of the female gender. A CHICAGO paper tells a story of election night, which it thinks shows the enterprise of the young Chicagoans. A parcel of boys were seen getting together the materials for a bonfire. When they were asked what was the news they replied they had none. "We don't dabble in politics. We built the fire so that when the news comes in we can sell it out to the side that beats." SAXE, the joker and poet, was once taking a trip on a steamer, when he fell in with a lively young lady, to whom he made himself very agreeable. Of coursfc, he made an im pression upon the damsel, who said at part ing, "Good-bye, Mr. Saxe: I fear'you'llsoon be forgetting me." "Ab, miss," said the in veterate punster, "if I was not a married man already, you may be sure I'd be for get ting you." "Mr dear what shall we name Bub?" "Why, husband, I have settled on the name of Peter." "Ob, don't," be replied, "I never liked Peter for he denied his master." "Well, then," replied the Wife, "what name do you like ?" "I should like the name of Joseph." "Oh. not that," replied she, "I can't bear Joseph, for he denied his mistress." "Bridget! Bridget! why don't you bring up the lemonade?" said Mrs. S., on the 4th of July, from the top of the kitchen stairs. "Wby, marro," said Bridget, wiping the sweat from her red face with her checked apron, as she put her head round the stair case partition—"Why, maTm, you see the ice I put in the lemonade is so hard that it hasn't melted yet, though it's stirring it over the firol've been for the last fifteen minutes or mere!" A GOOD IDEA, BIT TOO LATE.—The old gentleman came home from church enthusi astic. He found Frank instigating a small dog and a large cat to enter the riug. "Why, Frank," he said, "how can you stay away from church ? I have heard one of the most delightful sermons ever delivered before a Chr stian society. It carried me to the gates of Heaven." "Well, I think," replied Frank, "you had better have dodged ifl, for you will never have another chance." A DttT genius who has occasion to visit town daily from one cf the "rural.districts" recently passed a farm house near which the occupant had been butchering something less thar a dozen very small pigs, the result of the day's labor being hung np on a long pole facing the street. Our genius deliberately stopped his team, and asked the farmer what he was doing? "Butchering!" was the quick reply. "Ob," says the driver, "I thought you were dipping candles!" and he hastened his horses into a trot—to make op for lost time. NOT MARRIED. —In one of the Courts, a | very pretty young lady appeared as a witness. Her testamony was likely to result unfortu nately for the client of a pert young lawyer, who addressed her very superciliously with the inquiry : "You are married, I believe?" "No, sir." "Only wish to ?" "lieally, I don't know. Would you advise such a step ?" "Oh, certainly ! Fam a married man my self." "Is it possible? I never should have thought it. Is your wife blind or deaf?" It is scarcely necessary to add that the dis ccmfited attorney did not vouchsafe a reply. Assise DIBKCTIOSS.—"Can you direct me to the Hotel? inquired a gentleman with a carpet bag of a burly Hibernian stand- ■ iog on the steps of the railway station. "Faith," was the reply, "it's just I that can do that same. Y'on see, you jist go np this strate till you come to Thady O'Mulli gan's shop. Then you—" "But I don't know where Thady O'Mulli gan's shop is." "Oh, faith, why didn't I think of that? Well, then, your honor must kape on till you get to the apple-womaa's stand, on the cor ner of the brick church it is, and kape on the right, and go till ye get to the sign of the big watch, and mind yon don't fall down the eel ler thereaway ; and after that you turn to the right or left, but by the bones of St. Patrick I don't really know which." The traveler turned in despair to a lone, lank Jonathan, who was standing whistling near by, and made the same inquiry. "May be you're going to put up there?" "Y'es, I intend to." "Did yon come from far off ?" "Yes, from Philadelphia ; but can you tell me where " "Got any more baggage ?" said the imper turbable Yankee. "No, this is all," said the traveler, con vinced that the only way to get the direction was to submit. "Going'to stay long?" "Couldn't say," was the reply, in a crusty i manner. "But I'm in a hurry." "Wait a minute. I reckon yon're a mar ried man, ain't yon?" No. I'm not, and I won't answer any more questions till you have answered." "Well, squire, said the Yankee, coolly, I'd iike to, but the truth is, I have never been here before myself" In less than a minute, a carpet-bag with a man attached, was seen hurrying away from i that vicinity. pteaJaittou*. PACIFIC RAILWAY " GOLD LOAN. $0,50 M,OOO. We beg leave to announce that we have accept ed the agency of the KANSAS PACIFIC RAILWAY' CO., For the sole of ite Net Seven Per Cent. Thirty Tear Gold Loan, Free front Tax. This Loan amounts to $8,500,000. First Mortgage Land- Grant and Sinking Fund Bonds, secured upon the extent ion of the Railway from near Sheridan, in Kansas, to Denver, Colorado, a distance ol 237 miles, of which 12 miles are com pleted, and the rest is under construction. It is also a Mortgage upon the Road, the Rolling Stock and Franchise of this first-class Railway, besides new running through the State of Kansas, And in successful operation for 437 miles west of the Missouri River, and earning already enough to meet all of its expenses and existing obligations, betides More than the Interrst upon this new Loan. In addition to this the Bonds are also secured by a first mortgage of the Government Land Grant of Three Mil lion Acres, extending in alternate sections on either side of the track, from the 394 th mile post in Kansas to Denver. The proceeds of the sale of these lands are to be invested by the Trustees in the 7 per ctn. Bonds themselves up to 120 or iu U.S. bonds, as -1 Sinking Fund for the Redemption of the Bonds. The lands embrace some of the finest portions of the magnificent Territory of Colorado, inclu ding a coal field and pinery. The company also holds as an asset another tract of Three Millions of Acres in the Slate of Kansas, and although not pledged as a security for this Loan, their possession adds largely to the Com pany's wealth and credit. We estimate the Value of the Company's property, covered by this mortgage, at $23,000,000 net, while the Loan is merely $6,500,000. The bonds hare f Thirty Years to Run, from May 1,1869, and will pay Seven per cent. Interest in Gold, semi-annually,on May 1 and Nov. J, and are Free from Government Taxation, the Company paying the tax. The PBT.vciPAi, of the loan is made PAYABLE in GOLD, in the City of New York, but each coupon will be Payable in Frankfort, London or New York at the option of the holder, without notice, at the following rates.
