The phoapuate of coarse raw bones ls at tirat nearly losoluble ln thls aepae, becaure of ihe aotmat matter of tbe boae wblch envelopra lt. but when tbe latter decaya lu tbe aoll, tbe iihospoate remaiuaineaaentiauyiue "revened lorm, These matters are worthy of careful study by those farmers who make use of commer cial fertilizers. While the prices given may anawer the purpose of the chemlst, and raay indeed be the nearest ezpression of their actual commercial valne to which be can attain, It should be nnderstood that thls commercial value may be easily cbanged by a change ln the willlngness of consumers to buy fertilizers in such or such forms. If farmers purchase indiscriminately, and without proper knowledge, the prices will depend upon the course of the wholesale inarket for the raw raiterlal and tbe con venlence or intercst of manufacturers. If farmers, however, are " posted," and gener ally refnse, for instance, to buy " soluble ' phospborio acid at twelre and oue-half centa a pound ln a superphospbate when tbey can buy "reverted" superphosphate in medlum ground bone at five cents a pound, or " insoluble " superphosphate ln fne ground Charleston rock phosphate at tbree and one-half centa a pound, the price of the " soluble " artiole will come down t what the farmers are williog to give for it. As a matter of faot the high prlced soluble phos phate beoomea rererted iu the soll in a few bouri, and tho only po.S9lble superiority it hu consista ln the fact that for the few hours lt remalns soluble it- ls belng more erenly distributed in the soll. All fertile soiis contain phosphate of lime ln the " in' soluble " forin, and yet planta growing in them get enough for the moat luxuriant growtb, thus showing that tbough this min eral may be " insoluble " ln pure water in a chemist's laboratory, lt ls sulGclently sol uble ln the water of tbe soil to enable plants to get all that they need ln the good soil. It ls also a fact that the phospborio acld of etable mauure ls not in the form whlch the chemlst callj " soluble," yet it ls available to crops. It ls beoanse thls thing ls not fculliclently understood that farmers perslst in buying the "soluble" phosphate of commercial fertilizers at twelre and one. balf to elghteeu cents a pound when tbey can get the same thlng ln ground bone at five cents. We say from twelve and one half to eighteen cents, because nearly all tha commercial fertilizers sold lu New Knglanil when analyzed and their value calculated accordlng to the table given abore stlll fall sbort of tbe solling price from $5 to $15 on a ton. Aud yet at tbe estimated cheiulcal value tbe putchaaer ls givlug twelve and one half centa a pound for " aoluble " phosphorlo acid, and tweuty to twenty four centa a pouud for ultrogen when he can get hls phosphorlo acld (ln the same form that it exists ln the best stable rnanure, hog mauure, sheep manure, ben manure, or l'eruvian guano) for five cents a pound in ground bone, and hls ul trogen for from twelve to fifteen cents per pound in the same. We thlnk (and we tpeak from a loug contlnued practlcal eiperience) that thls ls preposterous diller cnce, entlrely unjustlfled by tbe agricultural value of these subatances ai seen in the growtb of crou. llut aa loug as farmers can be hoodwinked into buying fertilizers a,t$IOand$50atou that analjze ouly$31 to$t2, and are brought up to even this prlce by allowing suah an extravagant rate for "soluble " phosphorlo aold aud ammouia, tney wiu ie so aom. ivnowieuge u worth money ia thls matter, as much so aa ln I any with whlch farmera have to deal. The tmevAlaoof Ihe averRge tnrorphotphitte o( the mitkct, snaljilcg iM !33 per ton t the high rates given abore, la ntij boat 930 to the farmcr, and conlil be aold at that prlce to liim If the agent ejtUm w done ana; with, and the farmeis wonld bny for cath directly from the maker. Gronnd bone can be sold at a profit for $30 a ton ln oar-load lots for cash. A ton of bone nukeo about two tons of the ordlnai? phosphate of the matket, and the tnaterlal added phurio aold and water) docs not coet orer 915 per ton, whlch will brlng tho cost of a pure bone auperphoaphate to the maker at not orcr $20 a ton. If (S worth of ammo nla and potash 1U are Ineladed In a ton the cost will not exoeed $21 per ton for what ls called a eomplete fertlliior, eostlng at the stores $15 per ton to the eonsumer. These are far too blg profits for auch a clasa ot goods, and when farmers understand the matter, and will do thelr bnslnesa with the makers ln a bnslnesa-Uko manner, they ean get thelr inannfactured phosphates and thelr ground bone at $30 a ton, At that prlce the bono la the cheapest. Fertiliiera made from the rock phosphatea oan be sold stlll chcaper, and will pay a good profit at $25, or eyen $20 a ton. How absurd lt la to add eulphnrio acld and water worth from one-half to three-fourtha of a cent a pound to ground phosphate rock wotth the mtPl!ter an(1 Comciins, and of Thlllp and price and then ask the consumers two 'and one-half centa a pound for the mlxture. The price ia twlce too much. In ooropln ion bonea ought never to be made Into a sulphate with acid. And aa a matter of fact most of tbe phosphatea ln the market are made from the ground rock.

The Ulica Ueraltt re port saya tbere were tbree tlmea aa many present as attended the meetlng last year at Utlca. A llvely interest waa manlfested, and an Interchange of experience was made aa freely as at a dalryinen's meetlng. The crop of syrup was stated at from one bun- dred and fifty to two hundred gallons per acre, sold at from forty-two to sixty centa per gallon. The makers present represented a productlon of about 70,000 gallons, and all propose to pusb tbe business more strongly auother year. lt wns agreed to put the prlce of manufacture at two cents a pound, and a welght of eleven poundi to the gallon was given as the standard. The earliest varioty of cane is found to be the most profitablf, and the more fully mature lt Is before grinding the better tbe results. All the New York makers work by the open- pan system, like that used for maple sugar. The syrup made ls of light color and ei cellent flavor, entirely free from any objec tlonable taste. Not much has been done In New York yet towards making sugar, as syrup pays best at present, but all the makers agree tbat there will be no difliculty in making sugar, ss properly made syrup from mature cane alwaya graina strongly when suuiclently concentrated. The prin cipal dilficuUy experienced durlng the last year was ln getting a unlform color and quality of product, a thing aa necessary In syrup as ln butter and cheese, In the great markets. Thls waa overcome in a degree by runnlng tbe whole make together in large tauka before barreling, but of course thls sacrificed the best to tbe poorest iu making a unlform grade. More skill iu growing the cane, more experience ln manu factnring, and conducting the business on a larger scale with improved apparatus, are the ways out of this trouble. There waa not a doubt expressed as to the profit of the buslners. The entbusiasm seemed to be qulte equal to that for ensilage. The new " Founder of the Industry " waa entlrely ignored by this convention, but rewlutions were passed thanking .CommiS' sloner La Duo for investigating the business, and also Frofessor Collier, who waa intro duced to the meetiog by the president of tbe association, Hon.

Edward Atklnson, wbo ls one of New Kng. land's best thlnkera on industrial subjects, says, in arguing for tecbnlcal education ln scbools : 11 In the progress of my own busl ness life I have seen money enough wasted ln plausible enterprises, because business men bad not even enough comprehenslon of science to be able to detect tbe charlatans who imposed upon them either knowiugly or Ignorantiy, as would have sulficed to found a fully eqnlpped technlcal school or a I'hillips academy in every county ln Mat sacbuaetts and I have often had occaslon t tell the stookholders in corporations which I bad managed, tbat lt was very fortunate for them that they could never guess bow much It had cost them for my education in manufacturlng. But my method of busl ness waa aa good as any open to me when I began in the old way rather exceptlonally good ln the years which elapsed after I be- came of age, under the guldance of a very aklllful splnner of cotton.

Then his eyes wandered to the roofs and gablea that sheltered ber, as they stood ont over tbe brow of tbe hill, and he added, " I am afraid I am going to lose her, and I I can't seem to help it either j" His voice choked a little; the team came along; be turned to his raeu, auil I to finish my walk. A week later sbe was unable to leave her room. I went Into the old fashioncd bedroom to see her one night after our eatly tea. She was lylcg witb closed eyes, and I feared to disturb her ; but she looked up ao sweetly that I diew a rooker to the side of her bed, and asked her if tbore was anytblng I could do. She shook her head geutly and asked me If I were not lonesome in tbeir quiet life. I told her, " No, indeed I tho quiet aud freah alr, and absence ot excitement are luxury to me Then I bave bo much reading I want to do." " Ab yes," she sighed, " when I was tnar. rled I longed to read, but there was no tlme, I sometlmes thlnk I shall never read agaln."
