The buds have had au un interrupted growth from the start, and they are now under full headway, and beyond tlie reach of damage by frost. Peach growers are consequently in good humor, and holds their heads as high and slit) as kings. They feel the com ing of a snug pile of " filthy lucre," and well they may, as the peach crop •st is a partial failure, having been badly damaged by cold wheatber, ami good prices will no doubt lie ob tained tor a large crop of tbe Delaware Peninsula. The Middletown Transcript has the following : And the season one false prophet to rise up and say that the peach crop was killed by a frost or a blizzard with very cold feet. Folks living outside of tbo peach belt don't know what to make of this steady run of favorable reports. Some of them pretend that they would feel better sat isfied about the safety of the crop If they could hear just, once that it had been slightly frsst-bitten ; but they are only trying to bo sarcastic._ The Devil'* Auction The grand spectacular drama, " Tlio Devil's Auction," was produced at tbe Opera House last Saturday evening to u good sized audience.

Sussex County boasts of a very pro lific cow', as the following from the Journal will show: Mr. Robert Wilgus, of Roxana, has a line Alderney cow, only three years old, from which he makes from four teen to fifteen pounds of butter per week. He says he expocts her to make twenty pounds per week when she has her next calf. She cannot bo bought for $200. How is this for Sussex Coun tyv Htierlfr'N Hale. Sheriff Martin sold on Saturday after noon the property of Thomas I. Russell, Nos. 415 and 417 Shipley Htieet, to Col. Peter McCullough for $0,875. The sale of the property of John U.

A young man spent an evening with a girl, and, during the evening, while the family were present in the parlor, he was as demure, and bland,and childlike as could be wished. The mother caine into the room, after the family had retired, to get a hand kerchief she had left, and the young man was seated in a chair in the middle room, while the girl was seated on a sofa, and nothing that the mother in the actions of either led her to think they were more than pass ing acquaintances It seemed to her if tue young people had met before, vidence that they could 118 but there was no were very well acquainted. All night, after he had gone, the girl cofflph of a pain in her wide, and in the morn ing » doctor wai, called and he found that two of the girl's ribs were broken. How it was done tiohody knew'. The girl could not tell for the life of her, though she blushed when asked about it, and the mother looked very wise as she looked at the doctor. The doctor made some inquiries, set, the ribs, and went away, and the girl proceeded to recover. That evening the young man called and was astonished when in formed of the young girl's injuries, and wondered how it could have happened, though the mother watched his face close as he spoke, and detected not only a blush, but a profuse perspiration on his face. She had been a girl once herself, and though she had never had any ribs broken, she bad been hugged some, was a trying position for all of them. The father was away on a trip to Wis rfcen he came home the plained to him It omiHin ami matter bail to be told that the ribs juet simply broke themselves anil that neither the mother, nor the girl, nor the young aeconut for it, aud yet all three of them blushed terribly. The father pot ted bis giri on tbe bead, told her she would be better when she got over it, and then called the young man into the library. Tbe young man weak lie could hardly walk, and when lie sat down be took out a handkerchief aud mopped Ids tirow s dead. The fattier looked the young man over and was sorry, nally said : "Young man, I guess I can give you some points on bugging. You must iirst learn that a girl is not. constructed an Iron fence liu waa man coubl was ho ; aud wished he lie fi on the same principle s truss bridge. A girl is a delicate piece of mechanism, like a fine watch, full of little springs, wheels, jewels, etc. The breaking ot any of these would cause her to cease keeping time, and necessitate her being taken to a jeweler for repairs. Iu hugging a girl you don't want to go at it as if you raking and binding, or catching I know that where or a ; were sturgeon. family sits up late with the young couple, und spoils several precious hours of hugging, that unless the young man lias a good head, when left alone with the subject of his affection, that he is liable to overdo the matter, and try to make up for lost time. He seems to want to hug up a lot ahead, and grabs the girl as though he wauted to break her in two. " This in wrong. Y'ou should go at it calmly and deliberately, even prayer fully, aud be as gentle as though she ivory fan. The gentle pressure of the hand that a girl loves, even the touch, is as dear to her as though you rah her through a stonecrusher. should not grab her es you would a bag of oats,and leave marks onjher that will last a lifetime. A loving woman should not be be made feel that her life is in danger unless she wears a corset made of boiler iron. I hope this will be a lesson to you, and hereafter, if you can not control your feelings, I will provide a wooden Indian for you to practise at first, until you have developed your muscle, and gut tired, and then can turn our daughter loose in a rosm with you and not feel that it is necessary to keep a surgeon handy. " In allowing you to keep company with my daughter I do not agree to pro vide you with a human gymnasium, dressed in a Mother Hubbard wrapper, and wearing bangs. You can readily see that a girl would not last a season through if she had to have ribs set once a week. Please think this thing over, and if the girl Is well enough next Sun day you can drop in and try some more ribs. Now you go home and hug a hat rack for an hour or two, and have it repaired in the morning." The young man went out into the night air, took his hat oft'to cool his head and hired a man to kick him. the h au You Runaway Saturday Afternoon. LaHt Saturday afternoon a pair of npirited horaes, attached to a dearborn, became unmanageable on Delaware avenue and started to run off. The driver, a young colored man, endeavor ed in vain to check them, and they con tinued on until they reached Tenth and Orange Htreets, where they collided with awtreet lamp, throwing the driver out. The frightened animals were then Hecured, and it wae found that the driver had Hprained his knee, besides sustaining other bruises, and Dr. Bul lock was summoned. The dearborn was badly damaged, but the horses were not hurt Preparing for Decoration Day. The Garfield Post, G. A.

Since the illuminating oil obtained from petroleum, know in this country kerosene,and in England as paraffine oil, came into general use, it has been employed with variable success as an insecticide. That it would destroy insect life was long ago established; that it would also destroy plant life was some times demonstrated in a manner more convincing than pleasant. The oil in its concentrated form can be tolerated by but few plants. The improvement in its use was to add a very small quan tity to a bucket of water, enough to make but a mere film upon the surface; then diffuse it through the water by violent stirring,and apply before the oil and water had time to seperate.This an swered fairly well, but was trouble some. The next step was to divide the kerosene, not by dissolving it. but by diffusing it in the form of an einul bion. It in well known that oils maybe miepeiitietl in water by means of gutn, euxar, etc., and may be kept tliue for some hours or even days. It hasbeen discovered that milk, either fresh or soured, is a convenient medium to unite Mix together keroHHne ami water kcroaeneacd half aa much milk, ntir ring them thoroughly to form a cream like mixture. When the two are ho completely united that no oil is visible, dilute the mixture with twelve times its bulk of water, adding the water gradu ally, and stirriug thoroughly. This emulsion has been f und especially useful in tbe treatment of the various scale insects, so difficult to destroy by ordinary insecticides, and is used for various other insect pests. For trees use a syringe or iorce pump, and for house plants, often injured by scale lu sts, apply with a sponge or swab. THE YIELD OK WHEAT. A correspondent of the Country Gen tleman, residing in Shelby County, Ky., gives some valuable information ot his method of increasing the yield of wheat. He moved to that county in 1HM, when rheat crop there was only the average eight, bushels per acre. This fact was often talked ever at farmers' clubs, granges, etc., with a view to increase the yield. After experimenting with several fertilizers and selecting pure ground bone rneal as the best for wiieat, and sowing two hundred pounds to the acre, the average yield per acre quickly rose to twelve bushels, but. the cost of the ground hone, which was $;!0 per ton, was too expensive for the general farmer, hence other experiments were made ; some trying wheat, after clover; others the refuse salt from pork houses, top dressing, after the wheat was up up some three or four inches, at the rate of four bushels per acre. The latter was found to he very bene ficial by increasing the crop, iug the straw aud escaping lucects. The roots of the former, from the amount of ammonia they attracted and ahsorbeJ, acted as an incentive to the growth of the plant, and of course to the yield of the grain ; and by these aud other ap plications the yield per acre ran up to from Iwenty to twenty-five bushels per acre, and frequently from twenty-five to thirty ! This change from eight to twenty-five bushels shows beyond all question what intelligent cultivation w ill do. The correspondent concludes his article by saying—" My preference is wheat after clover, with now aud then a top dressing of salt." This suf ficiently endorses what we said on this subject some time ago, having special reference to the turning down of a crop of clover to be followed by wheat. as stiffen PULVERIZATION OK THE SOIL. The following experiment made by th i editor of the Live Stock Journal shown fie uroat importance of the thor ough p'i . ..-rization of the noil : " We ue ri men ted by hauling twenty mo loads of the best manure acres of clay-loam land, had ■o.l cultivated into the soil, which had neon worked iu the ordinary way, but was somewhat lumpy. This and tlio adjoining two acres were to be sown to corn for fodder. Upon the other two ac it was plowed and cultivated till the soil, four inches deep, was as fine as a garden bed. One and a half bushels of corn were drilled per acre upon each piece, drills 10 inches apart.
