Stretch so wide—

Over which have crossed
Our loved and early lost—
That their unseated eyes may never see
The further side,
Where still amid this coil and misery
We hide?

Is the realm *f their transition
Close at hand
To this our living land ?
Nearer than we dream?
Can they catch the gleam
smiles and hear the words we speak ?
And see our deeds?
And looking deeper than our eyes may seek,
Our needs?
Do they mingle in our gladness?
Do they grieve
When ways of good we leave?
Do they know each thought and hope ?
While we in shadows grope,
Can they hear the Future s high behest,'
Yet lack the power
To lead us from our ill or to arrest
The hour Y
When they find us bowed in sorrow
Do they sigh ?
Or when earth passes by
For them, do they forget
The cares that here beset
Their well-beloved? Or do they wait
(O be it thus)
And watch beside the golden gate
For us?
Wo are yearning for their secret :
Though we «ill
No answers ever fall
Upon our dullard ears

Yet God is over all, wlmte' er may be,
And trusting so,
Patience, my heart ! a little while, and we

How to Eradicate Sassafras Bushes.—
It is a well-known fact that many farme
are infested with sassafrus bushes, and
that many plans have been adopted for
their destruction with little success, the
trouble being that when they are grubbed
up every small root left in the ground will,
in the ensuing spring, produce a separate
shoot, aud thus the numbers increase.
Thirty years ago a practical farmer, who
bad seen four-score years, told me that if
the hushes are grubbed the day before and
the day after the full of the moon in July
and the day before and the day after the
full of the moon in August, the small roots
left in the ground will never germinate
again. After thirty years experience, I
am prepared to say to all who are troubled
with them, suspend all other work, em
brace the opportunity offered during the
four dayrf*I have named, and in the com
ing spring you may see one in a thousand ;
trat follow the same course the next sum
mer, and you shall see your enemy no
more. I speak from experience, 1 shall
leave others to philospliize and theorize up
on it.— Geo. Lemy, near Rcs's Corner ,
Kent county , Md.
Don't Go to Extremes. —Agricultural
writer« are inclined to run to extremes.
Farmers often cure their hay too much,
and to guard against this mistake, some
writers urge us to put it iuto the ham be
fore it is cured half as much as it ought to
bo. I have found, to my cost, that it is
not safe to follow their recommendations.
Detter dry it too much than not dry it
enough. And so in cutting grain. There
is undoubtedly a loss in lettiug it get dead
ripe. Dut there is a still greater loss in
, cutting it before the grain becomes firm.—
Prof. Joseph Harris.
Drying Frcit. —A correspondent of the
üural World finds an ordinary hot-bed a
capital place for drying fruit. A floor is
laid. iauiiie on which to place the fruit.
'Then put on the sash, hut be sure to raise
Loth the upper and lower ends about two
inches, to udmit of a free circulation of
j»ir, or the fruit would bake as it would in
an oven. Here the fruit will not be wet
in a shower, nor will it he troubled with
insects, which will be kept away by the
hovering and the intense heat. Parboiled
green corn has been sufficiently dried in
ouc day in this way.
The black knots on plum and cherry
.trees have been decided un good authority
to be neither the production uor the spe
cial nest of any species of insect, but a
little parasitic plant of tho class Fungi.
The only cure is to lop otf and burn the
jMfocted branches, as if left until late in the
.season they throw oft innumerable spores,
which lodge ou healthy brunches and there
vegitate.
Dwarf orange-trees from China have
reached California in good condition.
They are not over two feet high, and an
acre of ground would contuiu over four
thousand. Although each tree will not
^produce over half a dozen oranges, yet
the yield per acre would greatly exceed
JLhat of stuudard tries.
Correspondent of the Journal of Agri
culture says lie finds his clay loam grounds
iucrcase more in productiveness by the use
of eight bushels of plaster per acre, than
front the application of barnyard manuro.
Wood-ashes contains all the inorganic
ingredients which growing trees extract
from the soil, aud in consequence arc just
ly regarded as the best fertilizer for Up
jilus. pears, peaches, plums, etc.
Why arc «beep the most dissipated ani
gpi&ls in creation? Because they gambol
in their youth, spend most of their days on
the t\irf ; tho best of them are bhiokicgs,
and they ar,e «Aire to be fleeced at last.

used Whnnn's Raw Bone Super-Phosphate on my
' last spring, and on my wheat in the fall.
In each case it produced an excellent crop.
Wishing to determine which of the different phos
phates would pay me best, I tried several, and
am glad to say the yield was much the best
where I used Whann's. I shall continue to use
it, and cheerfully recommend it to my neighbors.
