This important subject comes home to every owner of a farm nr of a villas’ lot that re quires enclosure. At a mcetingof New Hamp shire farmers,several gentlemen publh y olb-r 1 od to sell their farm* fnrleisthanwh.it the ) existing fcnct on them bo 1 cost. In h recsrit : address at an Agricultural Convention, Mr. A I'1 W. Cbeovcr, editor of .V. Farmer, said ha had carefully gone over the statistics of farms, animals, crops, an 1 evt of fences, and found that: •' It fakes, on the average f -r the whole country,.?! 74 worth of fences to keep $1 G5 worth of stock from ratine up ?2 45 worth of crop*.” Five year* ago the statistics gathered at Washington showed that the fences thvn in ('existence had* cost $1 747,549,931. 'ihcat I ditions since have raised the cost of the present tVarisg of the country to fully k2,000 090.000. A million dollars is a pretty large sum to count, or e\ :n to conceive of, (we cannot count one million in the working days of a month, counting one a second and 10 hours 4 day), but here are two thousand such millions. The interest and repairs amount to over $200,000,000 a year, and tho rebuilding ! ul decaying fences nearly as much more, making our annual fence tat far m >rc than the entire cost of the Army, Navy, the Gener al Government e*p**ns*s and Pensions, tn , gether with the’latere < n the public debt.— In X. Y. State, for rx implc, there are some • 7-5,000 miles of roi ls requiring 150.000 mi'es * of fencing, i-. 1: ting over $40,000,000, and the total fencing in this single State has cost net less than $230,000,000. During 58 years past I the American Aji'ii iiUnri.<l has had not r. lit tle to mv ?■ to the n -cb'ssni'ss of a good deal of the fencing. Put much will bo needed wherever live animals are kept, and we pro i p isc now to direct sotno effort to reducing the cost of fencing generally. If this one item in the I ‘ailed States can bo reduced only • one-fourth, the saving will amount to $500, 000,000. In the older States, there .arc an average of alsiot two miles of fencing ( >r each 100-acro farm, casting about $1 « rod, or 10. If, ia building i vw lonces and replac ■ ing old ones, wc can erect them at J to j the 1 cost of the present fences, and have th sc tliat ’ will 1 i t two, three, four or more times as long | and require but amnll annual repairs, the aver age value of farms "ill be enhanced some hundreds of dollars at least. If a narrow cf ' f etivo fence can take the place of (he ordinary “worm fence,” there will be a great decrease in the production of weeds and f,u! plants.— ! Two miles of such lence on a farm, occupying . itrip bj fa 1 v.ide with Its projecting connrs " istes two full acres of ground, worth $150, or moro. \\ hy should iron ami steel not take the place of wood in all varieties of fern ing, both for posts and rails ?

My wife knew this, and, true to her genuin refinement, ha.-, never, in all there forty years, appeared at the table or allowed me to sec her less care fully dressed than during the days of the honeymoou. Some might call this foolish vanity. I call it real .wonunlioeM. I pre sume I should E't have ceascJ to lov. her had she followed the example of many others, and considering the everyday 1'fo of Lome neccssa- j r ly dev id of beauty allowed herself to be careless of such small measures as that of dressing for her husband’s eyes; but love is . increased when we are proud of the object ! 1 vi d, and to-day I am premier of my pretty ' wife, with her silvery hair arid gentle face. I than of the young bride wh so lovlincss wa» ( the there of my tongue. Any young lady * can win a lover, but h ow few can keep them *nch r.ftcr years of married life. In all the i little courtesies of life, In all that makes one attractive and charming, in thoughtfulness of j others and f rgetfulncaa of self, every bouse slr vld bo begun atd continued. Men should be more careful to a) mpathirce with and protect , the wife than tho bride—m- re willing to pick up her scissors, Land her the paper or carry her packages than if she were a young lady-; and as no young woman would for a rnomeat think of controlling the engagements and movements of a young gcutletr.an neither should she do sj when he i- her husband. If by making her. if bright and attractive she fails to hold him, compulsion a ill only drive him farther from Iier. 1 d<» not believe it pos sible to obtain the friendship of auy one 3e manJing it. I do not L Iicvc it posS»Lle to lose it by being l ivable." Within the pist five years the acreage of cereals in the United S’ates has increased from 74,000,000 to 9o,OOP,000.

They say you win every bet yon mike.” *• Yes, Colonel,” said the Ciptain, smiling, “it is quite true.” •• Nonsense!” chorused a dor.so voices. “ It isn’t nonfedse,” sii i the Gdoncl, “for I am t •!.! on very g>o 1 authority—namely, his old Colonel, a dear friend of mine, that it is true, lie told me when it was first settles! that Brown was to exchange; and n>w you : hear, he attests it himself. " “ Proof, proof!" cr'ed toe others. “Ah!” said tho Colonel, “proof. Come, B'own, how is it you minig? it ? \ ju won’t mini telling, I suppaae?" “ Oh, dear, no,” siil Brown, smiling. “I ' don't mind telling. You sco 1 stn ly tho coun tenance of the man I bet with, and know be forehand how in liters will be. I can reid a i man’s face enough for the purp >se of a wager " “ Yon can read mine, theu V asked the 1 Cblonel, chuckling. •• Oh, yes," was the calm reply. And the offi :ers around the table grew in i t crested. “ What can you real there, then?” Ciptain Browu looked at him intently for a few moments, and tlien said : “ Well, for one thiig, l can read that the old w»und on your ba k has broken out a fresh." “ XoMJnse!” r nrel the Cdouel. “I never i had a wound on mv hack. ' The younger offi.*ers exchanged glances, and the Colonel saw it, and it made him more angry. . “ You do not like tho subject touclietl. ’ sai l Captain Brown, gravely, “iiien we will pa>e it over. I beg your pardon for touchiog so , tender a place.’’ “ Bat, confound it all, sir I" roared the j Ciloncl, “ I have no wound on my hack to , break out afresh ” ; The Captain smiled. “Como, theu,” said the Colonel, fighting hanl to keep down his anger, "you are « let ting man • I'll b.-t you tw > ten-poun l notes to one that l have not got a wound, nor yet even a scar of a wound—even a scratch—upon my back. Will you l« t? ’ “ With pleasure, if it pleases you, Colonel. “Damme, sir, it does please me: l want this cleared up A wound on my back !— Damme, sir, I never turcol my back to the ' enemy in my life ! Now, sir, will you bet ? I “ fwill,” said the Captain, speaking reluc tantly, as If ho were forced into It ; while thu J Colonel was evilently growing purple from i suppressed rage. ••(food, then," sai l tho Colonel; twenty i pounds to left. The mess here aro witnesses. . Smith, lock the door.” j A cornet obeyed and, heated by ! wine, tho Colonel, in his rage and de-ire to , show his now caplain to ba what he mentally called a humbug, proceed*! to diveat himself of all bil upper garments, revealing several j bullet-scars and sw md-euts upon Ins ehe«t and I arms; but there was not the vestige of » scratch npm his hack. “Ojitie, look all of you V cried tho Colonel; “ I'm trot ashamed. You’ll Cn l no old wound upon my back." Onu And all ins pected tho old gentleman, and declared thcro was not a scar. “Now, Captain Brown," said tho Colonel, “perhaps you will Como uud look, sir, and sa* j tUfy yourself ?” “ I II take iho word of these gentlemen, Colonel,"naid Brown. "1 have lost. I wus mistaken." “ Ilumph! I'm glad of that,” sai l the Col* onel, snatching himself back into his clothes, and at I act dm Honing up his coat. “I’m nfrai-1 sir, you could not read my countenance." | “ No, sir, I conics-1 could not; I am beaten. There arc your ten pounds.” The colonol chock led and looked delight I • as be pocketed the money ; for this, an I tho feeling that lie bad been t *■» uiucli fur the in w captain, pot him in the Ixst of bnm *rs. S> Jolly was ho that ho patted Brown afTeclimate* ly on the back when they parted. I “ You couldn't rea l me, my D I. eh ? V >, no ; rather too deep for you, eli ? cb 7" “ Much too deep, Colonel. I w i . beaten, said Brown. And from that day, for a whole fortnight Brown’s glory ns a better was under eclipse. At tho end of that fortnight lli-r•• w *s e I ch»n;ro. The reason was this.
