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

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

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 .

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.
