WEDNESDAY EVE'G, liKC. IS. 1872.
fFrom Ihe Maryl-end Farmer.)
\OTES OF THE SEASON.
TOBACCO.
During this month it often happens wo
have a long favorable spoil of weather for
stripping tobacco and Iho planter ought
always to avail himself of it, for it may not
•occur, as was tho case last year, until ho is
busy with spring or even summer work,
lksides it is well to have some part of tho
crop ready for tho early shipment in spring,
whon tobacco buyers liko to send over tho
water samples of tho new crop and to do
so are often induced to give a little moro
than otherwise they would.
THE CLOSE OF THE YEAR.
During this month, tho farmer himself
has much to occupy profitably his time
and thoughts, although ns a general rule it
is not so busy a time with tho farm hands.
He should close up his accounts, see to the
profit and loss, and make his estimates nnd
calculations for the coming year—get rid of
worthless stock and discharge such of his
hands as have not given him satisfaction,
that he may have timo during the winter to
secure faithful laborers, and procure such
stock as will yield him a profit the
coming year. Let him sco that bis teams
are in good order, the harness strong and
vehicles in good repair for winter teaming.
See that tho roads which aro to bo much
vsed are in a fit condition ; provide his
winter's store of beef and mutton and his
pork for the year. He can then with com
placency await the approach nf the festive
season of Christmas, when with a heart
overflowing with gratitude to his God, and
good will toward his follow man, he will bo
prepared to enjoy his "Christmas thing?)"
with his family and friends.
Provide a large wood pile—il is pleasant
to look upon, giving assurance as it does,
that it will afford warmth and comfort
against the rigorous cold of winter, for
"old winter is coming again, alnck !
"How icy and cold l? ho ;
He cares not npiu fora shivering back,
He's a saucy old chap to white and black.
He whistles hi- chills with n wonderful Knack,
For he comes from a cold country.
A witty old fellow this winter 1-;
A mighty old fell iw fnr giee '
He cracks hi-jckes on th« pretty sweet miss. !
The wrinkled old maiden unfit to kiss,
And freexes the dew of their Ii ps for—lhis
Is the way with such a fellow ate he."
DEBT.
In closing our toils for the year, kind
friends will pardon us for advising them to
keep clear of debt. It is an axiom, undis
puted, that no farmer can make money and
farm successfully if involved with debt. I
Among the good resolves for your guidance
the coming year, be that you will keep
clear of debt, and such as are already so,
should determine to free themselves, if it
takes half or more of all they have, to ac
complish this desirable end.
At the present low prices of produce
and high prices of labor, no farmer can
affcrd to pay six per cent, on a large sum,
much less is he able to pay the present
ruinous rates of interest, ten to fourteen
per cent. Unfortunately, Debt is the com
mon curse of our people—it is tho skele
ton in most houses—it is tho accursed in
cubus that weighs down the energies, pal
sies effort, and shackles tho intellect. It
mars all pleasure, increases physical pain
and mental anguish, and often, to the unre
flcctivo and rash, brings ruin, misery and
dagradation to tho unfortunate debtor, and
it may be, to an innocent nnd helpless
household. It therefore behooves every
one to avoid it as a moral pestilence and
those who are already afflicted should
solemnly resolve at all hazards, to bo re
lieved of it, the earliest moment possible.
The Wife of Joaquin Miller is
winning laurels of her own, notwithstand
ing the fact that she trades principally on i
the fame of her ex-husband. "There is
nothing," says the Chicago Tribune, "half
so absorbing in all of Joaquin Miller's
descriptive verses as his wife's pioturo of
that famous visit to Minnie's homo ; how
she came out from the modest fisherman's
cottage by the sea-side, looked upon
hia heels, dignified by his ponderous
spurs, a3 he dismounted, and worshipped
him; how they floated down tho river in
her canoe until tho current threatened to
carry them into the open sea, and then
how ho bellowed, " Pull, Minnie—for
God's sake, pull!" Minnie had thought
that nothing would have been grander than
to go down to death locked in tho arms of
her own true lovo; but subsequent expe
rience has taught her to be thankful that
the turn of a wave saved her life. She
is convinced that Joaquin, who threw off
his coat, prepared to jump overboard,
would havo swam ashore without her." It
is believe by many that Mrs. Miller is
more imaginative in her lectures than her
poehy ; but at all events, she knows how j
to hurt the poet's pride and she does it i
keenly and gracefully. And she must j
have the fame as well as the money sho
craves. "Ono thing is certain," continues
the Tribune, "Mrs. Minnie Myrtle Mil
ler will need no future Harriet ISeecher
Stowe to vindicate her memory. If there
is anything which can reconcile Miller's
verses to the public, or mako his career in
teresting to anybody, it is to bo found in
liis wife's lectures—the very opposite of
the Caudle school, and a new muck-1 in sa
tirical literature. Miller made a mistake
when he gave up that woman to listen to
the laments ot New York chambermaids.
He will never find another liko her." And
he fervently hopes, doubtless, he never
will.
