Willie's Visit to Grotto. Elfin BY M. V. CALDOli. ILLIE TARKIXSOX had Deen liolilinsr a riclilv-tinteii, 10-y- k lipped shell to his ear for a long St time, with his black eyes fixed wixtlullv unou the srote3iue, changing figures dancing amid the glowing coals in the grate before which he was sit ting. . A great mystery was that beautuul shell, and always had been, from the time his lather first gave it to him, on his return froma.ii East India voyage to that very winter's night, when he sat thus before the warm lire, alone in his mother's handsome parlor, all uncon scious of the bitter cold and fast-falling snow without. ... What strange thing was the shell say ing to him ? At first, he had thought to timl iimi little animal confined within Mm nnllshed antral, and had ruined his mother's worsted needle, trying to reach far enonsrh within to find the inurmur- insr creature who dwelt there. Then he lioid the shell with a sudden feeling of awe as well as admiration, while ins : eyes grew bright and wild with the new thought that darted through his miud. What if there should lie within the shell Pilch An elf as he had read about in th story books, brought far away from its splendid homo In the deep, trrpj'n sea? He weut over to the centre-table and w-Wted from the nortfolio of engravings there, a favorite one ot his the story of which he had not yet conipreiienuuu.oui thenlcture was his delight; the quaint figures of the attendants and the gigan tic form of the water spirit pleased him 1 VCry ' much more, indeed, than the ' sweet, pleading face of little Undine. . The uieture was called "Undine in the Forest." and represented a great water fall, and ttt mischievous sprites fabled to dwell therein, witu tueir master, Kulnbond. who was appearing to a lit tle girl, a niece of his, who had left the water ana gone to live on me iaiiu, mm ' was then ruling tnrougn me uisuim iw st with a friend. Willie carried the picture to the soft ' rug before the lire, and with that and the shell, sat down agraiii, looking from them to the weird figures dancing about in the glowingcoal, till everything grew dreamy and misty. So H was not strange that presently he thought he heard a deeper roaring in the shell than ever before, until he caught these words idainlv: "Nevermore! nevermore Kiirhed a sweet voice in Willie's ear. He started nervously, and then listened again "O, nevermore! alas, nevermore! ' Snail the peuhly ueaeh, or coral floor, . Know of the lute ot the roseate shell Compelled on the dibmal land to dwell. , , nevermore 1 alas, nevermore I Shall the loving wave enclasp me o'er. ' Hut fur away from my own dear sea, ' Still will I whisper and talk of thee." Wikl with wonder and delight, Wil lie laid the nhell down an 4 watched it eairerlv. Aeain came the low, soft voice;,. ; -,, -it, nevermore! alas, nevermore! -. To visit my own wave-haunted shore! , U, mortal child, have pity on me, And bear me back to my native sea!" Not a word could Willie speak for as- tonishment, when he saw a soft light, like a far-away taper, or the evening - star trembling impatiently behind its veil of mist, waiting for the retiring sun, fathering about the rosy lip or tne shell Very slowly the light brighteited,bright ened, and rolled together into a single ' drop of -diamond lustre, deepening the polished pink tinge of the shell into a vivid carmine. And then will you De- licveit? Willie could hardly credit his own eresight the solid con or shell - srrew soft and pliant, and began to un roll, while, in a twinkling, down slid from it a tiny ladder made ot strong sea weed, and descending upon it, forth from the shell where she had lain se creted, but; according to the slander ' asrainst her sex, unable to keep silent, even iu her secrecy, came the mysteri ous being whose murmurs had puzzled Willie so every time he held the shell to his ear. A tiny, wee bit of a thing was this sea ell, witti eyes as Drignt as southern stars reflected iu tropic seas, and dressed in a sea-green robe, wavy and changeable as the yeasty luiiows tnac ureaK away from the bows of a ship under full sail. ' In her golden tresses (not a sign of ' green was there in her exquisite hue) glistened many a milk-white pearl, and on her -arms were entwined bands of pearl and coral, while a large bunch of red coral was held in her hand, as a sort , of wand. , jShe made a quick little how to the half-frightencn Willie, and shrank uwny in horror from the fire, as far as she could without moving her moist, white foot from the shell, and sang again: "O, mortal child, have pity on me, And bear me back to my native sea!" The pleading glance of her wave-blue eye dispersed Willie's alarm ; as he said boldly: . " What do you want of me ?" "O, bear me back to my native sea!" said the murmuring voice, distinctly; And from the shell came a musical re frain, echoing her words, and the drop of . light sparkled with a resplendent gleam, easting a ucw brightness over the tiny elf, ' over milky pearl, and bright line coral,1 and shimmering emerald robe till little Willie's eyes were dazzled with the charming vision, and he cried out. eagerly : "Yes, I will carry you to the sea." Then the sprite bowed joyously, waved her hand gratefully, and the white, twinkling feet glided up the larder and disappeared. The shell closed, and lay on the carpet quiet and still, as if noth ing: had happened. . Then Willie, without a word to his mother he thought excusingly he would tell the strange story over to her ' immediately on his return wrapped himself in his warm overcoat and furred cap, and with the shell in his hand, un mindful of the thick shower of starry snow, -or the dimness of night, took his wav toward the beach ; lor ins mother's house was on the outskirts ot the seaport from which his father's voyages were made, and but a short distance Irom the water. As he groped along, the clouds overhead seemed to break away, the snow-flakes fell more slowly, and pres ently ceased altogether, while the misty darkness cleared away from the space of sky before him, and the moon's shining face looked out cheerfully, just as he reached the shore. Noisily and caressingly, the great foam-capped waves came drifting in up- ' on the beach, where the new-lallen snow lay iu soft, white ridges, soon melted away, as wave after wave came dashing over it. Behind him, the dark outlines of the trees and houses loomed no against the sky, and, a little beyond, sparkled through the clearing atmos phere the myriad lights of the town. A pretty scene it was, but Williegave only it hasty glance around him, while he laid the shell carefully upon the sand, where the waves would break over it in airv bubbles. Once asrain came the mysterious glow, and so brightly that the town lights looked wan and dim. Again rose the low refrain of music. This time the words were changed, and as the lad der of seaweed touched the pebbly ground, the elfin lady bounded down like it bubble of the wave, singing in gleeful delight: "O, evermore ! O, evermore! I .cave I the cold and dismal shore. II nine of my heart, the deep, green sea, Hither I come to dwell With thee! "Mortal, say what the spell shall be Ellin grants from the deep green sea, To hands that bore the pearly shell In native wave once more to dwell." qtkc me with von to see your beanti fill coral arotto under the sea a little while, and then bring me safely back to mv mother." cried Willie, eagerly. She nodded, smiling gayly, and waved her coral branch over the water, as it came bubbling about her, seeming to warm herself in it, as we do in the sun shine. And out from the foam came a tribe of tiny tilings, speeding along far innr siv ftlv than the rarest jvraoiau Ktenri- Willie could not tell whether wings or Ana uronelled them, so rapidly were tiipir movements, but thev were harnes sed together with what lie, at first, thought to be be gold and purple and crimson ribbons, but soon discovered, on closer insncctloii. that thev were deli cate fibres of the most exquisite sea moss. - 1 . CONCLUDED NEXT WEEK. AGRI CTOXTUIt AI. The Boston Post says that a Florida nurserv man has sent .Mrs. Horace Gree ley a crate of peaches weighing from nine to fourteen ouuees each. This is he first instace of a man being impeach ed before he is elected. And these peaches were as large as the compliments once returned by an editor who said "we have received a basket of strawberries from Mr. .Smith,for which he will please accept our compliments some of which arefour inches in circumference." Books Fok Fakmeks. Every farmer ought to have at least a few of the stand ard works relating to the branch in which he is engaged. It is not neces sary that he should guide himself "Uy the book nut lamiliaritv with the views of others will give his mind an inquir ing tone which will be to his Denent iu all" his transactions, One great danger in farniing,resulting largely from its iso lation, is that;of falling into a plodding routine system, iu which all thought of investigation or improvement is lost. A farmer s mind should be as active as his body, or even more so. Labor without thought, without observation, or inquiry is such as oxen and horses perlorm, ami a good deal of manual labor transacted in this way is what has brought upon farming the reproach of being a "plod ding" vocation. Books, essays, discus sions, tiub meetings all actus stimulus to thought, suggest inquiry anu compar ison, incite to experiments, to system and to watchfulness, and in scores of wavs make farming more prolitabl more attractive.and more respectable ; that is, we mean, it inspires the respect of others more readily, Professional men, though systematically trained and educated, never hesitate to consult books and authorities when thev desire liiior- mation, and surely the farmer need not hesitate to do so when puzzling ques tions come up in his experience. 1 hey often impart real and valuable inlorma- tion, and they seldom fail to suggest something which may foeol value m some way, perhaps in a way the autnor never dreamed of. It is estimated by men who are expert guessers, that more money is expended annually in the City of New York and iu Brooklyn, for apples of the Rhode Is land and li refilling variety, than lor any other popular variety. Almost every person knows what the Jthodo Island Greening is. Very few other varieties are at the acme of their excellence for a longer period than this. It is excellent for making pies and sauce, superb for .i i: .i 1 i . i : . . n...i v. Ullllipilllg. illlll illjino jjiiUMilfjia, .iiu viiv apples are rich and pleasantly tart for eating in a crude state, let, there are other more popular varieties than the Rhode Island, which will bring more per bushel when sold by the side of the Greenings, provided there is a supply in the market. The demaud is "red ap ples."! which embrace those varieties like the Maiden's Blush, for example, red only on one side ; the streaked, striped, and many colored fruit. No doubt the Baldwin, the Northern Spy, the Tompkins County King, and some other varieties of "red apples," would excel the Rhode Island Greening in mar ket, if they were ottered in larger sup plies, At the last annual meeting of the Am erican I'omological Society, which was composed of gentleman from thirty-three States; who assume to be posted iu their respective localities with regard to the .i i t.:.i . varieties wiucu nave niLiieibo emuueuueu satisfactorily, and vvhieli are considered popular, a vote was taken lor tne pur pose of determinating, if possible the extent of the popularity of any partic ular apples. The eighteen varieties, the names of which are herewith given, re ceived the following votes : Early Har vest, Maiden's Blush, each eighteen ; Fall Pippin twenty-one ; Red Astrakhan twenty ; American summer rearmain, Duchess of Oldenburg, Fainause, and Talman's Sweeting, each nineteen votes; Ben Uavis, Carolina Red June, Jiarly Strawberry, Gilpin, Gravenstein, Large Yellow Rough, Summer Rose, Wine Sap, each eighteen : Primate, and Yellow Bellflower, each seventeen votes; The Rhode Island Greening and the Baldwin which will succeed satisfactorily iu anv State, from Maine to California, received no votes from mem bers present residing south of latitude 3d. - There was such a want of agreement in regard to a great many other varieties winch are Known to yield satisfactory crops, that a begin ner in Unit culture wouiu lie in dotiot, alter reading the "Report ol the Society' as to what varieties it would he advisa ble for him to select when about to plan an orchard. i We have attended some of the meet ings of the Society, and were not a little urprised and amused at the animated discussions touching certain varieties in certain States. When the Presi dent an nounced publicly that the merits or de merits of such a variety of apples has hitherto been a failure in his part ot the Shite, while another member of equally good authority would assert that the same variety succeeds admirahly, and is a pro lific bearer, only a few miles distant from the place where it is said to succeed not at all satisfactorily. Such remarks have a strong tendency to confuse beginners in lruit culture, aud to prevent them from selecting popular , varieties which would yield bountiful crops of line fruit. We have in mind an instance in which one of the most intelligent pomologists of New Jersey assured us that a certain excellent variety had always been a failure in his locality. Yet, on the farm of an adjoining neighbor, we learned the same day, that this same variety of trees on his land, yielded annually boun tiful crops of superior fruit. Our climate is all right for apples. The influences affecting the apple crop could not be improved. Indeed, those persons who insist that climate influence are not right for apples, or for any other fruit, are utterly unable to state where there could be an improvement. Hence, it is safe to assume, that if trees of a certain variety fail to yield satisfactory crops of fruit, we must look for local cause for the failure, and not to climatic influences. Varieties fail from actual starvation more frequently, than from any other cause. As the period is approaching for planting orchards in autumn, let us re turn again to the consideration of some of the popular varieties. The Red As trakhan is one of the most beautiful sum mer varieties that can be cultivated. Its singular richness of color of a groat va riety of shades, from deep red to streaked striped, and crimson, heightened by an exquisite bloom, frequently induces con sumers to purchase this variety in pre ference to any other that may be offered for sale. The trees come into bearing early and they will often over-bear where the land is rich, unless the young fruit is thinned out. There is no doubt that iu the locali'its where this and ma ny other excellent varieties were voted as failures, the trees were literally starv ed for want of suitable material for pro ducing a crop of apples. This variety ripens, in the latitude of New York, the last of July and former part of Au gust. Some of the fruit stands in the city, at the present writing, appear real ly gorgeous while supplied with large aud luscious RedAstrakhan apples. But it is not advisable for beginners to plant a large number of this variety, as the ap ples are short-lived. Every family should have one or two trees. If one would cultivate apples for profit it is not advisable to plant a large number of trees that will bear early fruit, as the early apples bring but little.jif any more, per barrel in the N. Y. city market than the best late or winter varieties. This suggestion is offered to prevent be ginners from making the serious mistake that'thousands have made by planting too largely of early, and consequently, lcrishable varieties. We have met with several excellent farmers who have spo ken with regret of their mistake twenty or thirty years ago in planting a long row of Sweet Boughs, another row of the Early Harvest, and so on, when they could not dispose of the fruit that grew on one or two trees to a satisfactory profit. If the trees had produced some winter varieties the fruit would have brought the proprietors four times more profit. Now then, in making a selection of va rieties for a small orchard, the aim should be to have such as will mature in suc cession from the middle of one summer until thenext. For example, choose one tree of Early Sweet Bough, ono of Early Harvest, Red Astrakhan, Slimmer Rose, Early Strawberry apple, Faineuse, American Summer Peacinain, VVini Sap and Dowse, two or three of Fall Pippin ; then select for winter as many as are desirabie of the Baldwin, Northern Spy, Tompkins County King, Rhode Island Greening, Yellow Hell (lower, or other varieties equally good, cultivate the ground thoroughly and feed the trees properly ami there will bo no failure of fruit.
