Fencing and Fences.
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 ? Mure tbau 100,G<*0

“ 1 will tel! you the ferret cf our happy
married life,” nai l a gentium in of three score
and ten. “ We have been married forty years;
my bride was the belle of Vew York, when I
married her, and tho’ 1 lo.ed her for herself,
still a lovely flower is all the lovlier
|> iscd in a beautiful vase. 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

“ I say, Ciptain Brown, tell ns—is it true?
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

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

feeling that lie bad been t *■» uiucli fur the in w
captain, pot him in the Ixst of bnm *rs. S>

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.
