We have, on several occasion?, urged |
our farmers to cut grass and grain lie
fore they arc too ripe. We now von ,
turc to say a word on the propriety of)
threshing the grain and putting it into]
market at an early period. Where far-1
jners can command time and labor, we!
decidedly favor threshing grain from]
the field, because, 1. it generally com-(
mauds about as good prices: 2, it has
not shrunk so much as it will by win

4. von run no risk' of it.- - spoiling.
(drain is a good price at the present J
lime, and we have on extra yield ; so.
the probabilities are that grain v.'illi
depreciate, rather than raise, in price.]
We believe, toko one season with an- 1
other, those farmers who thresh their]
grain and put it into tin; market nsj
soon as possible, arc the gainers by it.
Millions of bushels of grain are de-|
shoved every year by vermin. Large

"What brings you here, Mary ?”
said Trucsdall to his wife, as she en
tered the liquor store,
"It is very lonesome at honne, and
your business seldom allows you to bo
there,” replied the meek but resolute
wife. "To mo there is no company
like yours, and as you cannot come
home to me, I come here to you. I
have a right to share your pleasures
as well as your sorrows.”
"But to c<sme to such a place as
this?” expostulated Tom.
"No place can be improper where
my husband is,” said poor Mary.—
“Whom God has joined together, let
no man put asunder.”
“Surely you are not going to drink
that stuff,” cried Tom, us she was tak
ing up the glass of liquor.
“Why not ? You say that you drink
to forget sorrow, and I have sorrow
to forget.”
“Woman! Woman! you arc not
going to give that stuff to the chil
dren!” cried Tom, as she was passing
the glass of liquor to them.
"Why not, can children have a bet
ter example set them than their
father’s? Is not what is good for him
good for them also? It will put them
to sleep and they will forget that they
are cold and hungry. Brink ; sec how
much good it docs your father.”
With much reluctance Mary suffered
her husband to lead her home, and
that night he prayed long and earn
estly that God would help him to
break off an evil habit, and keep a new
formed but firm resolution.
Ills reformation was thorough. Mrs. j
Truesdall is now one of the happiest!
of women, and remembers with a mel

I Mr. Editor; —Allow me space
1 enough to record my earnest protest
1 against the character of certain utter
;. ances upon the part of some of your
correspondents from our town. 1 al
lude to the personal references in which
I they have indulged in their writing.
The proceeding has continued under
■ more or less palliating forms for some
* time, hut the latest expressions have
f reached a-point that can claim no in
l diligence; they have become unmanly,
wanting in dignity, and are down
! right impertinent: injurious not only
1 to the success of the Clarion, hut to
‘ the good name and moral bearing of
1 our village. Unless we are to be re
garded in the character of the Atho
■ nians, spoken of by St. Luke in that
remarkable parenthesis ot his. just
preceding his record ot St. Raul s
speech on Mar’s hill, who “spent their
* time in nothing else hut either to toll
! or to hear some new thing, ’ the nam
ing of persons, directly or indirectly
in matters of no public concernment,
should hereafter be omitted.
That there may he no misconception
1 will instance some ot (he objection
able cases ; of course I know not who
those writers may be, nor could 1
desire to do so. One brings promi
: neiitly before the public, by initial, a
1 young lady “of sweet sixteen, in the
connection of the late Jestival. Now
as every person could at once recog
nize the individual alluded to, 1 pro
nounce the matter an unwarranted
indignity. “Sancho, in the last
issue atleupls to censure the Baud,
charging it with “lack of energy, as
if il had anything to do in that matter
i.f “the history of a cake,” and then
in truly Quixotic styß, lights the bat
tle of voting and old, striking hither
and thither, wounding friend and foe:
but a- in the cam of the redoubtable |
I squire of old. whose mime he has sol
; aptly adopted, being in the end him
j self the most wounded of all; and at
! length winds up with personalities, so
I open and barefaced, that every gentle
| man must r. ml In an 'hern as from

| Because oDe anguine writer in the
I exuberance of spirits commits an
; ,jrror, or don't emne up to this one's
1 expectations, tin Band is (o he een
■ sured, when all the while that body
Iliad acquitted itself in the very best ,
j possible manner they could have ,
| adopted. Without show or senseless
i parade they received the timely eon
. sideration and assistance of the ladies,
land made their acknowledgments to
them in person, and not to the ttnin
| lerestod public, as Would have been
the ease had they resorted to the ]
I press, indeed, in the highly eredila- '
I blc character of that festival through
out, (here was nothing more so than >
the honest and unassuming conduct ]
of the hodv for whose benefit it was so
! successfully carried through.
| Next, “B. ' takes occasion to 1 <-11 i
I your readers of the private matters of
i a gentleman of relined and unassuming

I among the young and the aged who
j know him. He says, naming the gen

. sion, of a family event personal to
[’ himself, which he celebrated in n
I company with a number of invited

Lightning Rods.
Mn. Editor; —The idea ad given
in the article on “Lightning Flashes, ’’
which appeared in the last issue of
your excellent paper, that the “patent
copper iron rod" on Mr. Cook's home
at Iluckeystown, “served as a nor.
conductor to prevent the lightning
from striking the house," id decidedly
novel, and of course cnGrely unscien
tific, As electricity will always follow
the conducting nearest in*ita
course and having the greatest attrac
tion, it is clear that the walnut tree,
having these conditions, received the
discharge; the tree, no doubt, was
taller than the rod.
Rut the object of this writing is to
say that it is most remarkable how
easily persons are deceived by the
, vendors of lightning rods, very few cf
| whom have any knowledge upon the
I subject whatever, and all of them take
j more or less advantage of the igno-
I ranee of the persons on whose credulity
j they make their money.
'J ho whole subject was fhorough’y
f rented by I’roi. IRmry, of the Smith
sonian Institute at Washington city,
in an exhaustive article published in
i the Patent Office Report for the year
135 ff, among the general topics em
braced in the subject of Meteorology.
Any person reading the article will
find every needful direction as to the
mode of the construction of lightning
rods, the erection of them, their con
nection with the earth, and every par
ticular till complete, and will find that
all you need is your nearest black
smith to make and put you up a good
and complete conductor.
J would not have a rod on a tene
ment of mine of the kind sold so freely
through the country, even if given mo
free ol expense and a bonus on top for
allowing it to be put up.
! That report in ellect tell us that the
I professed improvements and patents
are of no account, and concludes
"An improvement in the form of
the lightning rod which was recom
mended by the French Academy in
lb— ■>, would presuppose some impor-
I lant cliseoveno* in electricity, having
a hearing on (he subject, but after
the lapse cf thirty years, (ho same
Academy being called upon to consider
the protection of the new additions to
the Louvre, finds nothing material to
change in the principles of the in
structions at first given." S, M.
