Their j land was situated on a beautiful ridge, ai.d was strong and productive.4' In the tiatuial capacity ot the soil, there was not a cent's worth of difference in the two latins; but yet they bore a very dissimilar aspect after they had been worked for a number of year.' Mr. 'Iltompsou'rt buildings ioiketl neat and fitly. -Hi door yard was clean, his windows were whole, his' barns snug and warm," his orchard looked thriltv. i Yw and the trees were carefully dressed, doctor's bill he had to pay.

Perhaps they have And all this come of your having building, anil the rural aspect his farm was very different. A few rags , were to be seen in spots where there should have beeu panes of ' glass ; various things were kicking' aUnut the yard, that should have been in other places; there were large cracks in his barns, through which the i rain and snow some times beat; hist apple trees were scab- bed w ith old bark, and the tops were disfigured by scraggy dead limbs. Mr." Holme worked hard harder if any thing, than did Mr. Thompson ; but yet his matters were all at loose ends, and he often wondered how it was that his' neighbor pushed things along so smooih ly, and kept everything iti such -excel lent order. s - i "Ah, Thompson," said Holmes, one day, early in thespriiig, as he came up to the door of the former; " have you got an inch auger I" -Certainly,"' returned Thompson, I can't get along on a farm without one." . . ' . I wish you would lend it to me for a little while. . 1 have delayed sowing my grain lor tw o days, because my liar row is broken, and I had no toids with which to mend it." "I will lend it to vou with pleasure," said Thompson. Aud then, as a sud den thought seemed to strike him, he added:: ' They tell me, Mr. Holmes, that you lost one of your cows vesterday." - iv reiurneu .ur. rioiiues witrt wre ui uit uc. cows I had." ... inin.jn ...r.i- .............. ......... ..... --"But how did it happens" " She broke her leg.' at a . . a. 1 a a . nroi.e ner ier . now, pray t: "Broke her lesr liuw, prayr " Why, you see the floor m my tie UP na,l g rather worn and shaky, and night before last she got one orhet legs through it and snapped the bone off ,,ke " P'pe stem so 1 had to kill her." . ml ....ill . ... . j . nuuues, mose are inings lariners ought to guard against.

However, what's done can't be helped. I guess Tom w ill be out in a day or two. But I must hurrr off now, to fix mv harrow," It took "Mr, Holmes nearly all day to mend his harrow, so that he had to postpone the harrowing of his land till the next morning, and when at length he got his grain into the ground, it was just five days behind his neighbor Thompson. 'His son was confined to the house over a week, and during that time he had to hire an exira hand, which cost him about iuur dollars, beside the started with the loss of a lew teeth, or the breaking or a bow, or perhaps even the head might have been broken, and thus instead of saving a good handle, &c, and making the other parts that were' needed, lor the want of. proper tools, he was obliged to buy new rakes entire. So in all the departments of his business, he was constantly meeting with obstacles, that retarded his prog, ress, aud all for the want of a few stm pie tools. One rainy day in the fall, after the harvesting was completed, Mr. Thoiiip- son was in hia tool chamber, making some apple boxes, when his neighbor Holmes appeared. . - " Thompson," said the latter, after he had had watched the movements of his neighbor's fore plane for a few mo ments, how much did that oxsled of yours cost ? I have got to have me one this winter." . O, that cost me nothing, I made it myself, during some ol those rainy days we had before harvesting. I got the timber out when I hauled out my wood last winter, so that the job became quite eisv." " Well, neighbor Thompson," said Holmes, after some little tune spent in hard study, " I don't see how you get along so. Your farm don't produce; any more than mine does, and I'm sure you don't work as hard as I do. " Your wife don't make any better butter than nuue dues,, your Miecp don t bear oet icr wuui utau nunc, yuur ueea uou . make better honey ; you raise more fruit .... ........ ...... ... ..... ....... -i . than 1 do, to be sure." "But I have no more trees," said Mr. thompson. ' w m ' eati Mr. inoinpson. " No;lu then your fruit is of a bet ter quality, and duds a more ready mar-' ket." j " Cer a nly, because I le grafted! in the bjst species.
