Upon the beach in muslin frocks,
And formed a tangled disarray
Of soaking shoes and tattered socks;
When nurse was driven to complain,
And kind mamma so gently chid,
Begging yon ne'er to err again,
Yon said yon wouldn't?bat yon did.
* When Betty whom yea worked so hard,
And yet who lovea you none the less,
Was prayed, so urgently, to guard
A secret Ante ybtir governess;
Yon recollect her pnszled look.

A new three volumo batch came down
From Mr. Mudle's library;
You promised that, bowe'er assailed, 1
You would not even raise the lid,
But curiosity prevailed
Against obeaienoe?and you did. (

Of any that I've e'er enjoyed;

Though your mamma had talked forhours,

Of clematis that clustered fidr,
The things we looked, and thought, and said,

On a certain day a great muster was to
conrti off atadme tavern in the County of
Henrico, and of coarse a cook fight or two.
At the appointed time, a great many persons
were present, and among them Mr. ,
M., a gentleman of the real old stripe, who
mhde !a few ten dollar bets on the cock
fights, andiost everyone, ne was commenting
on hie bad lock, when Old Ned
was seen approaching with a large bag
thrown over his sholder.
'Halloa, Ned, what have you got there?'
Fust rate cock, Massa M.'
Come, Ned V
Oh, yes; game as a panther, Mass M.'
- Out with him, Ned; out-with him.'
And Ned drew forth a large speckled
cock whichy to judge by his size, was a perfect
bruiser.
* What's the price Ned ?'
Five debars, Massa, m'cheap at dat, an'
if apy cock on die- ground kill dis cock, I
giin Vou back de money.'
The bargain was accordingly struck, and
'thematch right away.
M. bet about'the amount he had already
lost, and the cocks were put in the ring.
At the first touch of the steel, old Ned's
cock gave a qiost awful squall, and took a
strong wing for the woods. M. was furious
while the crowd laughed?fairly screamed,
with the enjoyment of the fun. Old Ned
was accordingly hauled up, with the application
of some pretty hard epithets.
Didn't I tell you, Mass M,' says Ned,
If any cock here hill dat cock, I give you
back de five dollars ? But dey got to cotch
him fus; an' I neber see any cock outrun
old Skewball in all my life. Ya yal'
M. wanted to be very anery, but it was
no go; his anger was choked (down by the
uproarious laughter of the crowd that met
him on every side and he was forced to enjoy
it as a capital joke. Old Ned continued
to frequent the race courses till the
day of his aeath.
MRS. PARTINGTON ON MASONS.
"WasUncle Paul a Mason?" Ike asked
of Mrs. Partington, as she stood poking at
the right profile of .the ancient corporal of
the "Bloody Eleventh" that hung on the
waH.
"No, he was a veteran sergeant, naturally,
though he took to gardening afterwards
and raised the most wonderful squashes,
that always took the primer at the Horticultural
Fair."
"I mean was he a Free Mason ?" continued
Ike.
"Oh ! dear, no," replied she, "and I'm
glad of it, for they are a great deal too free
in throwing their plaistering around, which
is very mortifying, and takes the color out
of things so; and when they whitewashed
the kitchen didn't they make free with the
balmy bud rtipwhich they mistook for a
cordial ? and I wish to gracious it'bad been
a 'metic to have taught 'em a lesson to be
a littleness free next time.''
"But, Free Masons" said Ike, petulantly,
"ain't masons; I mean the fellows-that
built the temple."
"0 I" she exclaimed, "them ? well, dear,
I have heard a good many things they did,
and then again, I have beard a good many
things they didn't, so between 'em both I
don't believe neither. It is a great mystery!"
she whispered, "and if they didn't kill
Morgan, they ought to have done it if they
agreed to, though it was a bad thing for
him. But I never believed the story of
sculling up Niagry Falls in a pot kettle
with a crowbar, which is preposterous, and
*8 for the gridiron?thereby hangs a tale,
and the Lord knows what they do in their
secret cemeteries, when they get on one another's
clothes by mistake and cut up all
sorts of capers, to say nothing of the ridiculous
aprons, which make them look so
* queer."
The interest of Ike had ceased, and he
had turned his attention to annointing the
cat with an application of soft soap.
Outflanked fob Oncb.?When General
Sherman was in command at Benton
Barracks, St. Louis, he was in the habit of
visiting every part of that institution and
making himself familiar with everything
that was going on. He wore an old brown
? coat and a "stove pipe hat," and was not
generally recognized by the minor officials
or the soldiers. One day while walking
through the grounds he met with a soldier
who was unmercifully beating a mule.
"Stop pounding that mule!" said the
General.
"Git eout!" said the soldier, in blissful
ignorance of the person to whom he was
speaking.
"I tell you to stop," reiterated the General.
"You mind your business and I will mind
mine," replied the soldier, continuing his
flank; movement on the mule.
"I tell you again to stop!" said General
S. "Do you know who I am ? I am General
Sherman!"
"That's played out," said the soldier.?
"Every man who comes along here with an
old brown coat and stove-pipe hat on claims
to be General Sherman."
It is presumed that for once Gen. Sherman
considered himself outflanked.

PRESERVING SWEET POTATOES.
Editors Southern Cultivator:?I will
give you my plan, or method, of keeping
the yam potato, in a perfect state of pfeservation,
through the winter and spring
months and, in fact, I have seen potatoes
taken out of the cellar, in the fall, when I
was putting in another year's crop, perfectly
sound. Thousands of bushels of potatoes
are made, in this locality, and lost, by
not knowing how to take care of them, and
are enjoyed, only for a short time in the
fall. Now, my plan is this; thoroughly
tested for six yearsy with perfect satisfaction.
I have a cellar ten by twelve feet,
and six feet deep, the plates supported by
a wall of brick, say three or tour bricks
high, and the walls to extend beyond the
edge of the cellar from two to three feet,
to give a good drain from the rains, and to
prevent rats from burrowing holes into the
cellar to let in water?with a door in the
south end and a plank floor laid across the
top of the cellar. Now, you have the description
and plan of the house, (any othersize,
on the same plan, will answer. Now,
get dry sand?I get the dry dust in the
roads, made by travel, in a dry time?and
put it into one corner of the cellar, to be
ready, when the time comes, to house your
potatoes. Be certain to have the dirt or
sand perfectly dry. As you bring the potatoes
from the patch, put them in the cellar,
mod, for ?fery three ?r four bushals,
laid away, take a shovel and throw on dry
dirt, filling all the crevices, and so on, until
you finish. When the weather grows
very cold, throw into the loft, above, some
shocks, straw, or fodder, to prevent the potatoes,
near the surface, from chilling.
If you think the above method will benefit
any of the readers, of the Southern
Cultivator, you are more than welcome to
give it. Yours, very truly,
i c. JOHNL. HOBGOOD.
SAVE THE DEAD LEAVE8.
If every horticulturist and farmer would
think for a moment on the nature of fallen
leaves?which contain not only the vegeta- ble
matter, but the earthy salts, lime, potash,
etc., needed for the next season's
growth and fertility?and that, too, exactly
in the proportion required by the very tree
or plant from which they fall; nay, more,
if they would consider that it is exactly in
this way, by the decomposition, of these t
very fallen leaves, that nature enriches the ^
soil, tear after year in her great "forests, it a
would hardly be possible for such a reflec- q
ting horticulturist or farmer to allow these fl
leaves to be swejjt away by every wind that f]
blows and finally lost aitogetner. nor t
would he give them away, as many now do.
He would rather collect, from week to week, t
the leaves that fall under each tree, and by t
digging them under the soil about the roots ,
where they will decay, provide in the cheap- t
est manner the best possible food for that j
tree. If this plan should be tried we should v
not see old orchards dying out for want of t
nourishment; but they would, in this sim- f
pie manner, receive all the enriching they
required. Pear trees, and doubtless the a
peach, would be greatly benefitted by this r
procedure. In certain vineyards in France r
and Italy, the vines are kept in the highest c
condition by simply burying at their roots t
every leaf and branch that is pruned off, or a
falls from the vines at the close of the sea- r
son. Will not some of our farmers of in- ^
quiring minds give this simple process a c
trial this season : It is a well known fact a
that no manure is more eagerly sought for c
by the florist than leaf manure. It enters ?
largely into the compost prepared for pot- r
ting. Leaves collected and mixed with s
barnyard manure, greatly enhance its val- t
oe. Therefore gather up the leaves that j
nothing shall be lost. j
How to okt BIG Crops.?As a rule, far- '
mers are much more anxious to get big |
prices than big crops. There are few far- .
mers whose average production could not 1
be doubled in a very short time by more
capital and labor. It is safer to use capi- c
tal in farming than in almost any other ?
business. The credit of the plow is quite J
as good as that of the loom or the anvil, *
and the capital will come if it is called for. *
Use more manure, and get thirty bushels of *
wheat where you now get fifteen, and eigh- *
ty bushels of corn where you now get forty. *
The quantity of grain grown per acre is 6
mainly a question of manure and tillage, j
A big compost heap makes a full grain bin. '
With high manuring, the soil needs deeper 1
stirring, and a gradual bringing up of the 1
subsoil to the surface. With the present '
horse harrows and cultivators, nearly all J
the cultivation can be done by horse pow- *
er, at a great saving of expense, and a t
great increase of the crop3. Plant for big
crops next season.?Am. Ag.
? ?
Kerping Sweet Potatoes.?My meth- f
od of keeping sweet potatoes is to air dry J
sand by spreading it on boards or a board {
walk ; dig the potatoes in the morning and \
pick them in the afternoon, before the dew
falls, throwing out all the bruised ones, t
Last winter I packed them in flour barrels?first
a coat of sand, then a layer of t
potatoes, so that the sand would fill all in- a
terstices. If the sand is too dry, as when
dried in a kiln, it will shrivel the potatoes, c
I had a room in the south side of my dining- 1
room that I kept the potatoes in after pack- #
ing them in the barrels. The heat from
the coal stove in the dining-room was all \
that was given tliera, and I did not lose two t
dozen tubers out of eight barrels; I have i
found them as sound in the sand as when r
dug in the fall. The outside dampness of i
the potatoes should be well dried off. I felt j
myself amply paid by the treat they gave g
through the winter.?New Jersey Cor. i

Animals apt to Fatten.?Headley, an
experienced cattle observer, informs us that
the lean cattle that have a "broad, full and
capacious skull, with strong evenly bent
defective horns, and a neck thick at the
base and a wide thorax" (breast) invariably
possess "a strong, nervous system," and
the greatest aptitude to fatten early and (
quickly ; while those cattle that have "long, f
narrow and contracted skulls, and puny and
abruptly bent horns will be characterized
by weakness, wildness and slowness to fat- f
ten." So he says: "A small, dull, sun- i
ken eye betokens hardness of touch and in-' j
aptitude to fatten; and a bright, large and t
open eye vice versa. These observations I c
have found to be applicable to any o?.the 1
kinds of cattle shown at the Newcastle mar- f
ket. But besides the shapes of animals, t
the age and classi&ust always have special \
consideration, and be adapted according
to food and situation, otherwise the realization
of remunerative profit will be uncertain, g

lid they ever know of a bird going to'qiiite
is much trouble just to ma ke a plav house ?
fravellers say there'is such a bird in'Aus
ralia, called the Bower bird: . v
"The Bower bird of Australia is not conented
with the magnificent forests andor- w
mge groves he has to sport in, but he must P4
;o to work and make a house more to his *r
nind. He does not use it for a. nest, nor w
las its nest ever yet beendiscovered. One 81
vould imagine from its little ball-room, thht *?
he nest itself must be quite a fanciful af- ,
air. .. P1
"The first thing to be done in their little
assembly room is one of the last in ordinay
houses. Mrs. Bower puts down her car- 01
>et. It resembles a tolerable mat, woven 01
if twigs and coarse grasses. Then other 81
wigs are collected, and arching sides are *
irranged, making a little alley, large e- .
lough to accommodate several friends at a
ime. Such romping and racing as goes 81
m when Mrs. Bower makes a party. Up
ind down this carious hall they chase each ai
ither, uttering a loud, full cry, which is no P1
loubt meant for laughter. It is no sort of 4t
jrotection from the weather, and as far as P4
my one can see, it is good for nothing but ^
o play in. But as they have nothing else ,v
n the world to do but to enjoy themselves, m
t is very well to make that the business of "*
ife. It is very different with boys and
;irls.who have precious.sc-uls that must live 81
orever, and who have a work to do for God ct
n this world. , . , 5
These little Bowers think quite as much
>f amusement as some silly people we have
een in our lives. They gather together
ust before the front and back door of their r
tomes a great collection of shining things. . tfice
white pebbles, pretty sea-shells, gay ^
bathers, bits of ribbon when they can steal ^

The following good advice on this im

As soon as the first teeth are fully erupd,

It is very important that every

rved sonnd in* itapluce, until it has fulfill*
I its mission, which is to give the child
mefhing to masticate with until the peranent
