Nut bear in"; trees generally prefer broken, rocky land, which is not adapted to the pro duction of annual crops, or the banks of streams and lakes w here the plow can not be employed to good advantage. Many persons object to nut-bearing trees because it is difficult to transpl mt tliem on account of their tap roots, which arc quite long, een when the trees are very young.

Tint is a homely. old-f.isliione.1 term. ' rarely eer hear it now. Young people are taught stile, address, how to bow elegantly and enter a drawing-room gracefully, often to the neglect of their manners. Fiom infancy they are allowed to be on such familiar terms with their pa rents and superiors generally that they grow up w ith a sad lack of reterence. The distinctions of tears, wisdom and position are not ptreeited by them, and they will carelessly or rudely ac cost a famous judge or a learned pro-fes-or, as if he were a playmate. The teneration for aie, so prevalent in some eastern nations and frequently inculcated in the Ilible, i, in th s age and country, almost unknown. At meals" ton will often find tint the children are helped lirst; then the older members of the family, and at length the aired father or mother, who has waited all this time in a silent meekness and submission pitiful to be hold. Thus these little one are taught that they are of the greatest impor tance. They become ini aticnt and clamorous, bellishncss, lrreterenec. Iiolducss and a disregard for the opinions, feelings and rights of others are militated. If tou call upon a friend, her little boy or girl w ill perhaps rush into the parlor and, heedless of your presence, interrupt the conversation with a child ish query or complaint, while the moth er turns from you to satisfy or console her d irling, et en though he breaks oQ your sentence in the midst. 1 have seen a girl of fourteen go before an elderly lady into a street car and take the only vacant seat. I have been mortified to see boys and girls possess themselves of etery easy chair in a room, leaving their elders'tooccunv the j mo.-e hard and unpleasant ones. They w ere not so much to be blamed for this as p'tied. Their parents had neglected to train them to feelings and habits ol reterence and respect. Not long since 1 saw a party of four seated in a street ear. Thev were an elderly lady, two young ladies and a young gentleman." It was evidently a mother, son, slaughter and her female friend. Wiien they left the car the young man assisted his sister and her friend to alight and walked away with them, chatting and laughing, while the mother was allowed to get herself out and hobble along behind as best she could. If instances like these were rare I would not mention them; but they oc cur frequently and in small towns as well as large ones. It is probably a result of the reaction that has taken place from the strict discipline and severity of the past. A sad and bitter memory of the privations and punish ments with which their own early days were darkened induces many parents of to-day to indulge their children to an extreme and unwise degree; to put upon them no restraint not absolutely necessary. I have seen a mother, who in child hood tt as forbidden sugar in any form, place the sugar-bowl ueforc her little one of three years, sating: "There, darling, cat all that you want." An other, whose little-plate was supplied with food utterly unpalatable to her, and which, in obedience to the com m ind of a stem father, she was com pelled to sit allow, though she ran out and ejected it immediately after, al ways consulted her children, even in infancy, respecting their diet. " What would you like to cat, my dear? Will you have scalloped oysters, or a piece of cake or mince pic?" The poor little tiling, of course, could not decide judi ciously, and, instead of being fed and strengthened with plain, simple food like oat-meal, milk, oeef and Innt, its appetite was pencrted and digestion impaired uy improper delicacies. This is only one w ay in it hich a lack of judi cious training and restraint is illustrat ed. The boys and girls of fifty yetri ago used, at least in the little town and villages of New England, to bow and curtsy to every one they met in the street." Now they not seldom pass their elders with a bold stare and loud, "Hallo! old boy !" Wo are sometimes told to be patient, that as they grow older they w ill gradu ally lay aside their rude and disrespect ful ways Probably; or at least they w ill acquire more or less of tact and dis cernment to perceive that polite man ners and kind attentions to all are more politic But these will be so superlicial as to bo easily penetrated by an acute obsencr. Gentleness, kindness. a thoughtful con-ideration for others ami respect and reverence for superiors, should be cultivated in the clii.d. else we may look in lain for their presence in the adult, except as they are assum ed for effect to gain some specific ot selfish end. Some of the time now spent in our schools would be more prohtably employed in training pupils, not only in industrial acts, but in good morals and good manners. E. A. Kiwjsburi, in Ihe Ho )ia'i JourixtL Some Yankee Morics. They tell some odd stories down in Eastern Ma-sachu-etts. One of them i abouta "hired man" who eime home one day with his oxen pulling along the tongueof a hit cart- He looked around astonished when his atleiiton wa called to it, and had to go back half a mile where the hay-load was left when the tongue came out and he didn't know it. A htt'e girl, being given to great inaccuracy of statement, had, by way of wanvng, the story of Ananias and Sapphira read to her. When it was done she aid: "That story is a lie, mamma, for I've told lots and lots oi lies and ain't dead yet." A man went into a mm shop, and having had a quart of rum put into his jug was about to leate without paying for it. Knther than let hint h ive it the bar-l.ceper poured it back. " Be sure and take only a quart," id the other, ' for Pte got a quart in there already." The fel low took his jug away with him. The other quart was water, and the iuiu was mixed with it all right for drinking. The man got a pint of rum free and the bar-keeper poured a pint of runt back into the barrel; his other customers had to pay for it. while he lost nothing. They area thrifty set down there, even in the matter of rum.
