The use of means by agents is the ap
pointed way of working in this world.
Nothing is accomplished in any other way.
The farmer tills the ground, but he has
his plow aud hoe to do it with. The me
chanic performs wonders of skill; but he
has tools to work with, and materials to
work upon. Tlie philosopher revolution
izes the- world with his opinions ; but in
arriving at his conclusions he uses theorems
and postulates and figures. So it is thro'
all the acts of mon. And this is God's
way of working too. lie dots not by the
instantaneous exercise of power force, every
event upon Mis creatine, lie rather ap
points the means to be used in bringing
events to pass, and either uses those means
Himself, or delegates their use to Home
creature. Kvory event may thus bo ana
lyzed. No mutter how great may be
the complication resulting from our social
relations, or how long the series of agents
and sub-agents ; in every link of the chain
there is an agent and an instrument; and
over all there is the one supremo Agent,
holding in his ulmighty hand the whole
scries, and usinir it as lie will. In thus
carrying out the plans of God every intel
ligent being is an agent, from the loftiest
Bcraph to the humblest member of our
race ; and every created thing may be an
instrument, lrom the stars circling in their
courses to the smallest atom that floats on
the breere.
In the great work ot converting the
world, the Holy Spirit is the agent. This
is His special work among men. And the
instrument which He nses Is tbe trtitli.
He is not limited to the use of such means
He might descend ut once and change all
hearts in a moment. l',ut this is not God's
way. lie chooses to work by means : and
the Spirit's chosen instrument is the truth
Tiir sword of the Spirit is the vord of find.
As the sword is the instrument by which
the warrior achieves his conquests, so the
nword of God is the weapon which the
Spirit wields in His conciueriiv' march
through this world of sin.
The theme suciicsted by these word
this: The adaptation of God's tcjrd to the
we of the Spirit tit Hi work: The appro
priateness, tho fitness, of the instrument
for the u-Ki to which it is to be. put. We
find proof of this in three different direct
ions, viz :
I. In the fact that the use of the truth
accords perfectly with the nature of tiie
Spirit. The means must be adapted to the
faculties and capacities of the agent, or
little good can be expected from its use.
It may be said hero that God, who is in
finite and perfect, can use any means to
accomplish any object. This maybe true,
and yet we find in everything as He uses
it there is a peculiar adaptation to its work.
In nothing is God's very perfection more
plainly shown than in lilting things togeth
er. Everything has its place in the uni
verse; every being his work; and in the
still, silent work of converting human, souls
what more appropriate means could the
Spirit use than the Word of God? In the
conquest of the revolted land ofMansoul
by its rightful sovereign, what more ap
propriate weapon could there bo for the
' conqueror to wield than that which is
"quick and powerful, an 1 sharper than any
two edged sword, piercing even to the di
viding asunder of soul and spirit, and of
the joints and marrow, and is a discerner
of the thoughts and intents of the heart?"
These words describe the very things that
must be done in each individual soul : it
is the othee of the Spirit to do them ; and
the word of God as His instrument there
fore accords perfectly with the nature of
the Agent. Other instruments might be
used : the voices of Nature, from the peal
ing.of the thunder to the whispering ofthe
breeze: the eternal truths of reason, from
the law of causation to the simplest math
ematical axiom. The Spirit docs use these;
applying them in their place: but for His
ureal work they are not sufficient. The
chief characteristics of the Spirit in this
work are power,wisdom, justice and benev
olence; and the means which He uses
must be something adapted to each of these,
something worthy of them all. The mighty
power of the whirlwind is not exhausted
in twirling the fallen leaf; the wisdom of
the sages is not spent on the simpler prob
lems of thought ; justice is not satisfied in
th little occurrences of life; or bijievo
lence in bestowing pennies on common
beggars. So He who is infinite in power,
wisdom, justice and benevolence, having
an infinite work to do, must use means of
the highest order ; no other is adapted to
His nature. The word of God, as contain
ed in the Ilible, fulfills this condition. See
this in tho three particulars of its origin,
its mission, and its effects. Its authorship
is divine; "Holy men of God spake as
they were nioved by the Holy Ghost. Its
mission is divine : it is 'profitable for doc
trine, for reproof, for correction, for in
struction in righteousness; that -the manof
God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished
unto all good works.' " And its influence
is divine : "it is the power of God unto sal
vation to every one that believeth." With
such an Instrument, so closely adapted to
His own divine nature and working char
acteristics, what a power among men is
possessed by tho Holy Spirit! Mohammed
thought to conquer the world and perpet
uate his religion with the literal sword.
Doubtless that weapon was more consonant
to his nature than tho word of God ; and
perhaps his failure tells us not so much of
bad judgment in the choice of means as of
wicked presumption on the part of him
who used it. Iiut He who has in charge
the final conquest of tho world has a pure
ly spiritual work to do. lie Himself is a
Spirit. He works among and upon spirit
ual beings, and for His use lie has chosen
a spiritual weapon, the word of God. And
lie will succeed ; not only with a few mil
lions of credulous men, but with all, from
the lowest to the highest : not only will a
few tribes in the darker portions of the
earth acknowledge His conquering power,
but every nation and kindred and people
under the sun will own His sway, and the
whole earth see tbe salvation of God,
II. In the fact of its fitness to meet the
wants of mankind. In any sphere of ac
tion, the instrument must be adapted to its
object, or little good can be expected from
its use. The improvements made in our
agricultural and mechanical implements
illustrate this general truth. Defects are
seen in those already in use: thinking men
seek to remedy these by inventing better
Instruments : and in doing this they must
keep constantly before them the particular
use of those particular instruments. Adap
tations to a certain object the finding of
something better fitted to the accomplish
ment of that object than anything that has
been used before Is the inventor' desid
eratum. We may illustrate further by ref

needs something for n milium of inter-1 en to make her abode on earth. She may
course with the Spirit which will minister
to his reason. He needs intellectual food
and he instinctively refuses to be satisfied
with anything that denies him this. And
in order to meet this demand, it must be
something that treats of various tnemes.
It must explain and apply somewhat
the eternal truth of reason; it must teach
upon all the different departments of na
ture and of providence ; it must strength
en science and encourage art ; and it must
reveal enough of the miraculous to keep
active that faculty of the mind which goes
out in this direction. The Ilible does all
this. Eternal truth is written on its every
page. Ileautifully it presents nature to
our eyes, painted as the original was cre
ated by the master hand of God. Softlv,
be defied, neglected, denied, betrayed ; yet
she remains, and maintains the ground
that she has won. And should it ever be
that men became so hardened against her
that no foothold be left to her on earth,
even then she will not die; she will simply
spread her angel wings and soar uninjured
back to heaven. The Bible possesses this
'elf-sacrificing principle. Cen'.uries have
passed since it was given to men ; and yet
it lives. Those who have hated it have
done their utmost to destroy it ; but there
has been no diminution of its influence;
nay, at this very day it is a stronger power
in the world than it ever was before. I'a
gans have rejected it, Mu-su'men have
spurned it, Itonianists have fought against
it, and infidels have caviled at it. It has
yet sublimely, it tells usof God's providing been burned in the fire, buried in the earth,
care; ofthe strong right Arm that bears
up the pillars of the c - th, and ot the un
tiring Hand that supp'.n.s each creature's
every want. Science finds in the Ilible her
foundation and her strength. Truths geo
logical, geographical, geometrical, astro
nomical, physiological, ethnological and
philosophical, are there contained in great
est numbers, aud their applications multi
plied to infinity. Art finds its strongest
encouragement in the Bible. The painter,
the sculptor, the musician, the architect,
the poet, and the rhetorician, all find their
most perfect models there. And for the
cultivation of our love of what is mysteri
ous, just enough of the miraculous flashes
and drowned in the sea. It has suffered
every indignity that satanic malice could
invent, from 1'opish prohibition to ration
alistic indifference. But it has not been
crushed or driven out of tip? world. Per
secution has only spread its fame the wi
der; thousands have sought and embraced
it simply from hearing others speak agaiiit
it. And so by this self-preserving power,
given it of God, it has outlived all opposi
tion, and has come to be acknowledged by
millions of men all over the world.
In the second place, the Bible has an ag
gressive force, a self-propagating power. It
has different ways of reaching different
men. but in some wav it influences evcrv
out the Bible ; these are to be supplied.
And, too, public opinion is to be educated
to a higher standard with regard to public
and general acknowledgment of the Bible
as the foundation of our life as well as of
our belief. The reading of the Bible in
our schools is a question which (to our
shame as a christian nation) is being open
ly discussed ; and our individual opinions
and influence are called for. Shall we
hesitate to give them, in favor of this pub
lic Bible reading in those institutions which
are making the men and women ofthe
next generation? When, a few months
ago, this question was brought before the
people of Cincinnati, and the Fifteenth
Amendment came into force just in time
to save the Bible in the schools of that city
by the colored vote, was it not God who
spoke? And will not every lover of the
Bible in our land ratify that divine decis
ion and declare with an emphasis that
shall make the answer ring from shore to
shore that it must, it shall, be so?
But, secondly, there is the foreign work
to do. In this we cannot act as distribu
tors ; but we can give of our substance to
enable others to do so. The society which
our churches aid is a worthy one; and
surely the cause itself is one of the noblest
in the world. Then, too, we can pray for
the speedy dissemination of the word thro'
out all lands, among all people ; and let us
remember that the duty of prayer is bothl
general and upecial. And not only are we
to give and to pray, but we are also to expect
the full and speedy triumph of the Bible
over all opposition. God has promised ;
His word is sure; and faith in prayer is
just as much a duty as prayer itself.
Here then is the work we have to do
with respect to the Bible, to distribute, to
influence others, to give, to prry, to expect.
Shall not we, a little band of christians,
pledge ourselves each to the other today
to be faithful in the great work? As we
sing the closing stanzas of our missionary
hymn, let us sing the stirring words with
self-sacrificing enthusiasm,
"Shall we. whose souls are lighted
With wisdom from on high,
Sh all we to man benighted
The lamps of life deny ?
Salvation, oh ! salvation;
The joyful sour.d proclaim,
Till earth's remotest nation
Has learned Messiah's name."
And as our voices swell the chorus of those
sublime last words, let the prayer be fer
vent, and let us all look forward with full
joy and expectation to the glorious tri
umph of that latter day.
"Waft, waft, ye winds, His story.
And you, ye waters roll ;
Till, like a sea of Glory,
It spreads lrom pole to pole ;
Till o'er our ransomed nature,
The Lamb for sinners slain,
Redeemer, King, Creator,
In bliss returns to reign.

Greeley's Opinion of Aqricultural
We presume there is not another person
on the continent that has more crochets
in his head than Horace Greeley, yet for
all this he manages to write more readable
articles than any public man of this gene
ration. The following just published in
the Tribune has some good suggestions,
and those that are not good, if there are
any, the reader isn't bound to believe. But
it does seem to us that much of it is well
worth reading. He says : I must have at
tended not less than fifty state or county
fairs for the exhibition (mainly) of agricul
tural machines and products. From all
these, I should have learned something,
and presume I did ; but I cannot now say
what. Hence, I conclude that these fairs
are not what they might and should be.
In other words, thev should be improved.
But how ?
As the people compose much the largest
and best part of these shows, the reform
must begin with them. Two-thirds of them
go to the fair with no desire to learn there
from no belief that they can there be
taught anything. Of course, not seeking,
they do not find. If they could but real
ize that a farmer's fair might and should
teach farmers somewhat that would serve
them in their vocation, a great point would
be gained. But they go in quest of enter
tainment, and find this mainly in horse
racing. Of all human opportunities for instruc
tion in humility and self-depreciation, the
average public speaker's is the best. He
hurries to a place where he has been told
that his presence and utterance are earn
estly and generally desired, perhaps to find
that his invitation came from an insignifi
cant and odious handful, who had some
private ax to grind so repugnant to the
great majority that they refuse to counte
nance the procedure, no matter how great
the temptation. Even where there is no
such feud, many, having satiated their cu
riosity by a long stare at him, walk whist
ling off, without waiting or wishing to hear
him. But the speaker at a fair must com
pete with a thousand counter attractions,
the least of them far more popular and
winning tiian he can hope to be. He is
heard, so fir as he is heard at all, in pres
ence of and in competition with all the bel
lowing bul s, braying jacks, ami squealing
stallions in the county ; if he holds, never-
in all respects the. idolized pursuit which
poets are so ready to proclaim it and ora
tors so delighted to represent it. Let us
struggle to make it all that fancy has ever
painted it ; but so long as it is not, let us
respect undeniable facts, and characterize
it exactly what it is.
V. If our counties were thoroughly can
vassed by township committees, and each
tiller of the soil asked to pledge himself in
writing to exhibit something at the next
county fair, we should soon witness a de
cided improvement. Many would be in
cited to attend who now stay away ; while
the very general complaint that there is
nothing worth coming to see would beheard
no more. As yet, a majority of farmers
regard the fair much as they do a circus
or traveling menagerie taking no interest
in it except as it may afford them enter
tainment for the passing hour. We must
change this essentially ; and the first step
is to influence, by concerted solicitation,
at least half the farmers in tho county to
pledge themselves each to exhibit sorue
thkig at the next annual fair.
Harvest Song.
Hail to the luerry autumn days, when yellow corn
fields shine
Far brighter than the costly c-iip that holds the mon
arch's wine!
Hail to the merry harvest time, the gayest of the year,
The time of rich and bounteous crops, rejoicing and
good cheer!
'Tis pleasant, on a fine spring morn, to see the bud
'Tis pleasant in tbe summer time, to view the teeming
land ;
'Tis pleasant, on a winter's night, to crouch around
the blaze ;
But what are joys, like these, my boys, to autumn's
merry days?
Then hail to lnurry autumn days, when yellow corn-tit.-bls
Far brighter than the costly cup that holds tho mon
arch's wine !
All hail to merry harvest time, the gayest of the
The time of rich and and bounteous crop, rejoicing
and g'xsl cheer.

For this hot weather there is no otter drink to
healthy and refreshing m tho
out along its pages to impress our minds one who hears its voice. Some are over-
with awe and reverence towards Him who
thus shows us a little of His higher glory,
But, further, in order to meet this intellec
tual demand of ours, the Spirit's medium
of intercourse must be something that calls
out and ministers to our different emo
tions. We are emotional beings, and this
part of our nature must be developed as
well as the rest. Fity,love, gratitude, joy,
hope; these and others must not be over
looked ; they must be strengthened, and
their oppoesiU's weakened by that which is
to do us good. And this is done by the
Bible. Our feelings are stirred to their
very deptlm by those narratives and ap
peals which wo find there, and as we read
we are conscious of a growing aspiration
after that which is perfectand pure. This
intellectual demand is also for something
exhaustless ; something that shall never
fail. To know everything would be misery
to a finite mind ; to be obliged to give up
study because the end was reached, would
paralyze our faculties. Accordingly our
objects of study must be exhaustless. Sci
ence, art and philosophy are so; herein
lies their strength. And that through
which the Spirit communicates with us
must have this same strength, too. And,
to meet this requisition, we find the Bible
is an exhaustless book. It has been read
and studied for ages, but its whole mean
ing comes no nearer being known. Like
the waters ofthe great Atlantic, its depths
has never been ascertained. Like the az
ure dome of heaven, its height cannot be
In the second place, man as a moral be
ing needs something as a medium of inter
course with the Spirit, which assumes his
moral nature, defines his moral relations,
and regulates his moral life. It must be
something that will teach him to look up
to the Supreme Being with filial awe and
love, to acknowledge his own dependence
on almighty care aud his obligation to
keep cheerfully whatever rules God lays
upon him, and to devote all his energies
to H is service. This demand is also met
by the Bible. It is a complete book of in
struction, a perfect code of precepts, an un
erring guide for our whole life. It teach
es us our relations to each other and to so
ciety at large ; it tells us of our private
duties and dangers ; and it warns us in the
most solemn manner of our personal ac
countability to our Maker, intensifying the
warning with the assurance that He will
one day call us to a strict account for ev
ery act. It teaches us to fear Hint as our
holy Sovereign and our righteous Judge,
and it also bids us to look up to Him at
all times with the tender confiding words,
"Our Father" upon our trembling lips.
But, in the third place, man as a lost be
ing needs something in the Spirit's com
munication which will reveal a wav of
salvation. This is our greatest want : all
others vanish into utter nothingness in
comparison with it: for, as we lost every
thing by the fall, so we have everything
to gain by that which shall be to us a Gos
pel. And this want, too, the Bible sup
plies. It tells us all our wretchedness and
woe ; but it tells us also of Him who will
lift us out of these. It does not spare us
in its scathing words of rebuke and denun
ciation ; but neither does it leave us crush
ed and hopeless beneath almighty wrath,
It tells us of our darkness; but points us
to the light. It tells us we are dead ; but
shows us how to live again. It lets loose
upon our quivering souls all the fiery ser
pents of outraged justice ; but in the midst
of their terrible ravages it lifts up the Bra
zen serpent and bids every wounded child
of Adam look and live. It calls our atten
tion to the clouds of wrath that roll above
our heads, gathering blackness every day
and threatening to break upon us in end
less ruin ; but upon those very clouds it
points out a brightness like the rainbow,
where the hand of God has written in let
ters rich with the blood of His dear Son
the wondrous words. "Christ Jesus came
into the world to save sinners." Wher
ever it is known and read, it speaks. With
a voice loud as the seven thunders, and
sweet as the music of the heavenly choir,
it tells the story of redeeming love : and
not one of us need fail of everlasting life
who can read or hear one page of our Sa
viour's New Testament
Thus all these demands which lie in the
wanU of mankind for & fitting medium of
intercourse with the Holy Spirit are met
by the Bible ; and so. far as we are con
cerned, we cannot conceive of a more ap
propriKte instrument to be used "by such

So tbe word is spread among individuals ;
and among nations and tribes its power is
still the same, only seen on a larger, grand
er .-cale. Missionaries do not so alone to
those distant lands; the Bible goes with j Pamon
them ; or, rather, they go with it. Wher
ever they stand, the Bible is their hand ; and
whenever they preach, its words are in j
their mouth. Their whole success depends j
upon the faithfulness with which they din;: !
to Christ and preach His word. And their j
uccess has been mo.-t marvelous. Bar

which even tbe prayers (if christians a half
century ago could hardly rea.h. See in

the sword of the Spirit wielded by the
hand of its almighty Agent, has achieved.
The Sandw ich Islands and Madagascar have

and Africa. The far-off isles of the Pacific

of the Kinr of kinjs. And last, but not

must be shed perhaps, to atone for her big
otry and wiilfulne.-s in opposing the truth

Prussia learned the lesson years ago, and
now, challenged by insult, she teaches it
bv force of arms to fickle, frivolous France.
Austria, already humbled from her days
of pride, must soon choose between an en
lightened Christianity and a miserable
death. Spain is undergoing a baptism
which, though it be one of blood and fire,
will yet prove to be true christian baptism.
Italy has at length spewed out that hugest
of the antichrists, and so prepared the way
for a firm establishment as a truly Catho
lic christian nation. Thus jrreat and mo
mentous change) are going on, and they
are all in favor of truth. The atrirrcssive
power of the truth is felt in Europe as it
was never felt before ; and in view ofthe
importance of Europe in the history ofthe
world, we may now expect the rapid ap
proach of the great day of the Lord. Cool
headed politicians may discuss as they
please the results of the war; faint heart
ed ones may cry out with terror at its carn
age; skillful diplomatists may scheme as
they will ; but the christian sees more and
further than they all. He sees something
more than the material warfare which I
the eye rests upon. In the Emperor's in
glorious fall he reads the overthrow ofthe
prince of darkness. In the thunder of the
cannon he hears God's voice proclaiming
vengeance on those who have defied Him
so long. And in the flashing of the bay
onets he sees the gleaming of the Spirit's
sword as that almighty Conqueror marches
on to final victory. Such is the aggressive
power of the word ; and such it will con
tinue to be till all shall be subdued. God
takes care of His word, and against Him
none can prosper in opposing it. Elijah
and Micaiah may prophesy ; and ail the
Ahabs and Jezebels in Satan's kingdom
have no power to hinder or to hurt them.
Thus the proposition of the fitness ofthe
Bible to be the Spirit's instrument is prov
ed in these three ways ; by its consonance
with the nature ofthe Spirit, by its adapt
edness to the want of men, and by its own
inherent power. And now, if all this is
true, how great is the responsibility of
those to whom God has given the Bible I
We are to some extent our brothers' keep

abominable selfishness, is that which keeps
us from making every possible effort to
bestow it upon others J We can do much
if we will, towards spreading the Bible

It is practicable t) make home o delight
ful that children shall have no disposition
to wander from it or prefer any other
place : it is possible to make it so attract
ive that it shall not only firmly hold
its own loved ones, but shall draw others
into its cheerful circle. Let the house, all
day long, be the scene of pleasant looks,
pleasant words, kind and affectionate acts;
let the table be the happy meeting place
of a merry group, and not a dull board
where a silent, if not sullen company of
animals come to feed : let the meal be
time when a cheerful lauirh is heard and
good things are said ; let the sitting room, j
at evening, be tbe place where a smiling
company settle themselves to books or j
games till the round of good night kisses j
are in order ; let there be some music in :
the household, music not kept like silks
and satins to show to company, but;
music in which father and mother and sis- ;
ter and brother join; let the youuir com- ;
be welcomed and made for the 1
time a part ofthe group, so that daughters :
shall not deem it necessary to seek the ob- j
scurity ofback parlors with intimate friends j
or to drive father and mother to distant i
apartments; in a word, let the home be
surrounded by an air of cozy and cheerful ,
good will ; then children need not be ex- ',
horted to love it, you will not be able to
tempt them away from it.
The ties which bind a child to home are
created not so much out of great as from
little things; some of them I have hinted
at, and many more will suggest themselves ;
to a wise parent. There should be a good j
many holidays in the home. I believe in j
anniversaries, and I love, by observing :
them, to connect time with events, and so ,
to give both a deeper interest. The birth i
days of a family should be always noticed, j
and, in some way, celebrated. The busy
preparation of the household to make some
present to the father or mother or sister or
brother on a birth day or holiday ; the
well; but let two jockeys start a buggv
race around the convenient track, and the
last auditor shuts his esrs and runs oiTto
enjoy the spectacle. Decidedly, I insist
that a fair ground is poorlv adapted to the
! diffusion of agricultural knowledge that
I tbe people present acquire verv little in
! formation t.icre, even when thev get all I
they want. j
What is needed to render annual fairs i
useful and instructive far beyond prer edei;t I
I sum up is follows:
I. Each farmer in the county or town-
ship should hold himself bound to make j
some contribution thereto, if only a good j
hill of corn, a peck of potatoes, a bunch of '
grapes, a squash, a mellon, let him send
that. If Le can sei.d ail of these, so much j
the ' t'10 l),:,tl,'r- There is verv rarely a thrifty j
farmer who could not add to the attractions !
and merits of a fair if he would try. If ho
could semi a cage of superior fowls, a like
ly calf, cr a first rate cow, better yet ; but
nine-tenths of our farmers regard a fair as
.-omething wherewith they have nothing
to do. except as spectators. When it is
half over, they lounge into it with hands
in their pockets, stare about for an hour,
and go home protesting that they could
beat nearly everything they saw there.
Then why dil they not try? How can we
have good fa rs, if those who might make
the be.-t disjlay of products save them
selves the trouble by not making any;
The avcratre meaccrness of our fairs, so
generally and justly complained of, is not j
the fault of those who sent what tlu had, i
but of those who, having better, were too
lazy to send anything. Until this is rail- j
ieally changed, and the blam" fast-'ned :
those who might have contributed, but d'd
not, our fairs cannot help being generally j
meagre and poor. i
II. It seems to n.e that there is great
need of an interesting, and faithful running
commentary on the various articles exhib
ited. A competent person should be em
ployed to give un hour's oif-har.d talk on
the cattle and horses on hand, explaining
the diverse merits and faults of the several
breeds there exhibited, and of the repre
sentatives of those breeds there present.
If any are peculiarly adapted to the locali-
j ty, let that fact be duly set forth, with the
How to Raise Cows fop the Dairy.
"Cattle Breeder," in the Rural Ameri
ican, says that a heifer that is designed for
the dairy, should be brought up with great
care, and in a manner that will tend to
make her growth, and bring out all her
good qualities.
We will suppose that a heifer has been
brought up in such a way to the age of fif
teen months , that she is in a thrifty con
dition, and has every indication of becom
ing a good cow. We should recommend
thai she should now be mated with the
bull, as by beginning thus early, we can
control in a great measure her future de
velopment. As the ensuing five or six
years will bring out whatever of dairy
quality she may possess, we cannot be too
careful at first in our training. And first
we should be careful about feeding too high,
as heifers kept in high condition are liable
to have inflammatory action setup in the
udder towards the close of their term,
which often destroys tho usefulness of a
portion ot the organ, and tends to hinder
the secretion of milk, thereby injuring the
future reputation ofthe cow as a milker.
As there is always more or less of inflam
mation during the first stages of lactation,
the young heifer should be milked as clean
as possible at least three times a day ; and
her food should be light, with sufficient
water, until the feverishness is gone, when
it w ill be safe to adopt a more liberal policy.
In the early stages of lactation, cows
have a tendency to dispose of their surplus
nutrition through the milk secreting or
gans ; consequently they should have a
liberal supply of good food at this period,
so that not only nature's demands may be
met, but that their milk producing quali
ties may be stimulated beyond this. In
order to accomplish this, we should feed
not only all the moist food the cow will
bear and assimilate, but whatever of rich
food will have a tendency to produce the
largest and best results ; always keeping in
mind never to impair her digestive powers,
nor promote a secretion of fat. The cow
that does not respond to such treatment as
this, should not be kept for dairy purposes :
as those cows only are profitable whose
milk producing organs are capable of be
ing improved by judicious feeding.

Paths destined never more to meet.
A frivolous word, a sharp retort,

That had bound two souis in harmony.
Sweet love lies bleeding or dead !
A jKiisoncd shaft, with scarce an aim,
Has done a mischief sad as shame.

Alas! for the loves and lives
So little a cause has rent apart ;
Tearing the fondest heart from heart

But live and die iu secret pain.

Harper's Bazar.
Each great gift is a trust from God.
The function of the man of great genius
is to do for the rest what they cannot do
for themselves. Every faculty that man
has is amenable to the conscience and
God's law, and is to be used for its owner's
advantage, but for mankind's behoof not
less. What if Raphael had painted for
his own eye, and then burned up his pic
tures ; what if Shakspeare had written dra
mas for his family and a few friends; what
if Newton had shown his diagrams and
calculations to the great gownsmen at
Cambridge, and then destroyed them ;
it would not be at all more selfish than
the course of the merchant, scholar.trades

and himself alone. .

ed and discussed, and let their superiority
in whatever respect to those they have su
perseded or designed to supersede be clear
ly pointed out. So, if there be any new
grain, vegetable, or fruit, on the tables, let
it be made the subject of capable and thor
oughly impartial discussion, before such
only as chose to listen, and without putting
the mere sightseers to grave inconvenience.
A lecture room should always be attached
to a fair ground, yet so secluded as to shut
out the noise inseperable from a crowded
exhibition. Here meetings should be held
esch evening for general discussion ; every
one being encouraged to state concisely
the impressions made on him. ami the im
provements suggested to him by what he
had seen. Do let us try to reflect and con
sider more at these gatherings, even tho'
at the cost of seeing less.
III. The well supported agricultural so
ciety of a rich and populous country must
be able, or should be able, to give two or
three liberal premiums for general profi
ciency in farming. If $100 cculd be prof
fered to the owner or manager ofthe best
tilled farm in the county, 50 to the owner
ofthe best orchard, and !?o0 to the boy un
der 18 years of age who grew the best acre
of corn or roots that year, I am confident
that an impulse would thereby be given to
agricultural process. Our premiums are
too numerous and too petty, because so few
are willing to contribute with no expecta
tion of personal benefit or distinction. If
we had but the right spirit aroused, we
might dispense with most of our petty pre
miums, or replace them by medals of no
great cost, and devote the money thus sav
ed to higher and nobler ends.
IV. Much of the speaking at fair seems
to me insulting to the intelligence of the
farmers present, who are grossly flattered
and eulogized, when they often need to be
admonished and incited to mend their
ways. What use or sense can there be in a
lawyer, doctor, broker, or editor, talking
to a crowd of farmers as if they were the
most favored of mortals and their life the
noblest and happiest known to mankind?
Whatever it might be, and may yet become
we know that the average farmer's life is
not what it is thus represented ; for, if it
were, thousands would be rushing into it
where barely hundreds left it ; whereas we
all see that the fact is quite otherwise. No
good can result from insincere and extrav
agant praises of a calling which so few
freefy choose, and so manv gladly shun,
Grant that the ; farmer's ought to be the
most enviable and envied vocation, we
know that in fact it is not; and agreeing
that it should be, the business in hand is
to make it so. There must be obstacles to
surmount, mistakes to set right, impedi
menta to overcome, before farming can be
The Wool Trade.
In an article in the United States Econ
omist, written in the interest of the East
ern wooi dealers, the fact is stated that
manufacturers! had gone West to buy wool,
"while Eastern dealers prefer to stay at
Of course they do; for if they should
come here, they must pay the wool grower
his price -or not get his wool; but if they
can keep the manufacturer at home and
persaade the growers to consign their wool
to them, (the dealers) then they can man
ipulate tho matter to suit themselves.
They are sure of storage and commission,
and how much more they get the producer
never knows. The writer proceeds to say :
"We suppose farmers hold for the best
prices, and we can find no fault with them
for trying to sell their wool at the best
rates; this is the du'.y of every one, yet we
do not see why a buyer should pay more
for an article than it is worth, simply be
cause he is a buyer. Men had better do
nothing than trade at a loss, though this
has been the fate of numbers the past few
years. It is time that this was stop
ped." Exactly ! Let them quit, and let the
manufacturer come directly to the produc
er aud buy his wool. He can transport it
to his mills, by shipping in large lot.s,
cheaper than they can send it in their
small parcels to the commission merchant,
in which case the manufacturer might save
the full amount of storage, commission,
and at least a part of the drayage.
All the profits of the dealer, the middle
man, may be divided between the manu
facturer and the producer, and thus both
be gainers by this manner of doing bust-
uess. Since the manufacturers show a dis
position to go to the producers for supplies,
let the mere traders quit and go at some
productive labor.

Pumpkin Pie. An English. Recipe.
Peel and cut a sufficient quantity into
thin slices, first scraping out the seeds, and
set it, with some d.ied currants and sugar,
in a saucepan, over the fire, the heat of
which draws the juice of the pumpkin, and
makes it tender. No water is required.
As this process occupies about three
hours, it is better to stew the pumpkin the
evening before it is wanted. By stewing
the currants and sugar with the pumpkin,
a better flavor is imparted to it. When
thoroughly tender, so that it might, if re
quired, be passed through a colander, the
stewed pumpkin, which dissolves in boil
ing, is to be put into crust, like mince pies,
which it much resembles in appearance
and flavor ; or a shallow dish may be cov
