of that old grey head !n their pulpit though

rather too steep for comfort! There is not

all around the heart but never touches

to pass current, you must advocate a Chris

give me the old honest teaching of a less
comfortable creed, so it comes to me in
that sincerity of soul which blazes out from
the rugged, manly heart of old Father Tay
lor! " Th$ Lord have mercy upon, us for we
o,rt a widoicl" Nor is it the widow alone
whose tears cease to flow in view of such
consolation. A bright young heart has
ceased its beating, and a bereaved mother
sorrow over the fragile little bud, laying
10 still and white before her. Baby is dead !
There are crowds to wonder at the mother's
passionate grief, to talk to her of the sin
fulness of her sorrow, and tell her how
much better off it is among the angels.
Useless useless all! The old minister
knows, mayhap, from bitter experience,
that it is useless! He knows how that
tiny bud had twined and braided itself with
her mother-heart-strings! He knows how
love and hope had blossomed to her mind
in its onward pathway, and he tells her to
weep her fill, for tkre is no sin in the
tears shod for thearly dead; so he tells her
to weep for the dear, fond face she will miss,
yearn for, but never see again! to weep
for the soft dimpled arms whose close clas
ping she yill remember, mourn for, but
never fee again! to weep for the little
golden lpd nestlingand childish confidence
to her bosom, which she will pine for, dream
of hm wake to loneliness and desolation!
He tells her to weep for the child-angel,
(tailed home before the taint of earth was
on it wing; but while she weeps, to remem
ber that there is a Father above us, who
will have mercy upon her because her heart

there should have been love, and the dear

There is more poetry unwritten than

may be, but if by "overdrawn" they mean

a lowly parterre of the cotter's garden, on
a common hill-side of a wooded pasture,

as yet met their slightest indications on the

JtSTlt being reported that Lady Caro

In Pennsylvania there is no complete
farm without a barn, and tho plan of con
struction is almost uniform. A bank-barn
is deemed an indispensable neoessi ty . The
immense amount of money thus invested,
and the proportion which it bears to the
value of the land itself, is very satisfacto
ry evidence of its practical value. Not
withstanding the impression that exists in
other States on this subject, in my judge
ment, there can bo no good and profitable
farming without it.. Tho subject has,
therefore, sufficient importance to warrant
the consideration, whether this plan, so uni
form, has not been improved upon.
There can De no doubt of the great supe
riority of the two storied bank-barn. The
plan of constructure which will most conve
niently economise time and labor will best
promote the farmer's interests. Having
one of each kind, experience has shown
me the great superiority of that which
recommend. Tho difference between them
cannot be better expressed than by saying
that the improved barn has two sets offloors
one above the other; and as you drive into
the upper one, it of oturse, requires a cor
responding height of natural bank not so
high, however, as may not be had on most
farms of rolling land. The upper floor,
has an elevation of seven feet above the
slower. The advantage of such a barn, is
first, its great capacity. It has a height
and depth of twenty fix feet, without high
pitching; for your loai is about the middle
of it, and you pitch bith down and up
down to the bottom of tho mow, which is
on a level with the lewer floor, and up to
the height of an orditary barn. But the
particular value of thij is, the immense com
pression which results from a high and deep
mow the grain or kiy is pressed into a
space which is almosj incredible to any one
who has not experiejeed it. After filling
the mow nearly full you are led to wonder
at its capacity to reec ve more. I need only
add, that all other arts of the barn are
improved in their c nvenience and space
by this simplo alter tion in principle; and
the size of your ban is made to consist in
its height instead o, its length and breadth,
whereby you save, :i point of expense, the
extensive roofing, a d add nothiug to your
height of wall, whic i you do not take from
its length and brenc ;h, and what you gain
is, the value of pres ure in packing away,
and, the saving of 1 bor, in requiring but
one or two hands tdput your grain in a
small mow, when t o or three, or perhaps
four, would be req ired in one of greater
But this is but nc point of convenience
and economy. Td thresh grain with n
machine requires fir, five or six hands
the number dependiigupon the convenience
of putting away tb straw. It is easy to
perceive the diffrencc in putting away
straw in mows and over-shots feven feet
below the floor, and in those on a level
with it. And soon after you begin to gnt
out your grain this state of tho case arises,
and it will be found ftat one or two hands
less are required. '
The capacity cf tit common bank barn
will allow you to thrlsh from one hundred
to one hundred and fifty Dushels at a time,
and then you must jtop, discharge your
hands, and occupy tie next day or two in
cleaning up and getting your grain out of
the way, whereas in the improved barn the
threshed grain passes to tho lowest floor, is
not in your way, andyou thresh on until
you are done. Ant in a barn thus con
structed more than double the quantity can
be threshed in a day. I In the common use,
it requires about twtnty-two minutes to
run through ten doztn, and twenty-seven
minutes to cave it ijp ; in the improved
one all tho time of can ing up, being more
than one half, is saved The same machine
will thresh one hundred bushels a day in
the former, with onehand less will thresh
two hundred in the; latter. One of the
lower floors is used in cleaning your grain,
and the other for, garners; and both con
stantly useful for many other purposes.
I commend to farmers tho examination
of this improvement before they build a
barn. FREDRICK WATTS.

jty In this world, a lucky rogue is more
respected than an honest man suspected
of poverty. Whether it is so in the next
remains to be soon. It is doubted, however,
and it's this doubt which enables "patient
merit" to grin and bear" things.
Economy in a Family.
There is nothing which goes bo far tow
ards placing young people beyond the
reach of poverty as economy in the man
agement of their domestio affairs. It mat
ters not whether a man furnishes little
or much for his family, if there is a contin
ual leakage in his kitchen or parlor, it runs
away he knows not how, and that demon
Waste cries 'More!' like the horse leech's
daughter, until he that provided has no
more to' give. It is the husband's duty
to bring into the house, and it is the wife'
duty to see that none goes wrongfully out
of it. A man gets ' a wife to look after his
affairs, and to assist him in his journey
through life; to educate and prepare his
children for a proper station in life, and not
to dissipate his property.
The husband's interests should always,
and ever be the wife's care, and her great
est ambition carry her no further than his
welfare or happiness, together with that of
her children. This should be her sole aim,
and the theatre of her exploits in the bosom
of her family, where she may do as much
towards making a fortune, as he cann the
counting-room or work-shop. It is not
the money earned that makes a man weal
thy it is what he saves from his earning.
Self-gratification in dress, or indulgence in
appetite, or moro company than his purse
can well entertain, are equally pernicious.
The first adds vanity to extravagance, the
second fastens a doctor's bill to a long butch
er's account, and the latter brings intem
perance, the worst of all evils in its train.
The Two Gifts.
In New York, a Fifth Avenuo young
lady well known in fashionable society, was
the recipient, on New Year's Jay, of a
most elegant flower gift.
It was made in the shape of an elaborate

enclosing a canary bird suspended under
the central basket in a beautiful 'cage.'
The flowers were of the richest and rarest
native and exotic and tho cost nearly

less not well known in fashionable soci
ety, received a beautiful gift. It was a
little babe; a little innocent, lovely babe;
and yet the mother took it to her bosom
without smiles. Why ? For months the
iron hand of poverty had bound down to
the very earth her youthful husband and
herself. There were no full furnished
drawers, with cunning wardrobe meet for
the little immortal ; and well for tho moth

was the reply.
