" HI tell you, B , laid a farmer to
the writer die other day, farmers in this
-country do not estimate, or rather do not
know the importance of care in saving seeds
1 find if 1 have a good variety of wheat,
mod an early one, that if I cut and save that
which first ripens for seed, my next crop is
an improvement on the last. I find that if
T have a good variety of eorn and watch
careful'y for the ears that mature first, (and
they are generally the largest and best,) and
take care of it, and nse it for seed, I improve
the quality as well as get a variety that ri
pens from four to ten days earlier than any
other corn planted from seed selected indis
criminately, as is the common custom."
This is true of all kinds of garden seed.
By care in the selection and saving of seeds
wo may have earlier and butter vegetables
and garden luxuries. Tomatoes, pees, beans,
lettuce, cucumbers, melons, Ac, Ac, may
bo greatly impnued and earlier varieties ob
tained if thin ml a is adopted. Farmers ;
seek for the earlfest varieties at seed stores,
without estimating the amount of benefit
that might accrue to themselves and to oth
ers if they were even to use the power in
their own hands to create earlier varieties.
Improvement in quality is not to be over
looked. Already have seedsj begun to ma
tare, and though these hints be too late to
bo practical in all respects this season, there
is abundant room for their application yet.
We hope those of our readers inti retted
will profit by them. It is never geod poli
cy or good economy, to neglect to save yonr
own seed when you can. Unless you desire
tt change, it is an indication of bad hus
bandry to sell your entire stock, hoping to
purchase when seed time arrives, Even if
it is found necessary or best to change seed,
it is safer to be prepared for the worst, and
aave .what you may find it necessary to
seed with, notwithstanding your calcula
tions. Emery a Journal.
The Adventures of it Seed
Nature has provided that plants growing
even in the burning desert shall be provi
ded with enough of water for the generation
of their seeds; and one of the most remarka
ble instances of this fact is furnished by the
Anastatica Uierochuntica, or rose of Jerico.
which grows in the arid wastes of Egypt,
Palestine and Barbary; upon the roofs of
houses and among rubbish in Syria; and in
the sandy desrls of Arabia. This little plant
scarcely six inches high, after the flowering
season looses its leaves and dries up into
the form of a ball. In this condition it is
uprooted by the winds, and is carried
blown, or tossed acrcss the desert into the
sea. When the little plant feels the con
tact of the water, it unfolds itself, expands
its branches, and having become thorough
ly saturated with sea water, is carried by
the tide and laid upon the seashore. From
the seashore the seeds are blown back
again into the desert, where, sprouting roots
and leaves, they grow into fruitful plants,
which will in their turn, like their ancest
ors, be whirled into the sea. These regu
lar periodica! processes of the life circle of
this wee rose struck the simple imagina
tions of the men of old with .ucrticious
awe, and they invested it with miraculous
virtues. Dickerit Household Words.
To Make Fruit Trees Beak. Same pear
trees which make a rapid growth, of wood,
are yet very slow in Yielding . fruit. The
Autumn Bergamot is ontfof this, often
growing steadily for ten or twelve years
without producing a solitary pear. An or-

Another mtthod is to transplant non
bearing trees frequently say every two or
three years. Of course this can be done on
ly on trees of a moderate size. This is in
reality a sort of root pruning. It checks
tho Sow of sap to the extremities, and con
verts side buds into fruit spurs. Trees so
treated should be kept vigorous by ample
manuring. Mr. Rivers, of England, an emi
nent promolo'ist, practices this method ex

A Cueap Barometer. It is said by a
'- Scientific Journal that a very cheap barom
eter is made by disolving some camphor in
alcohol, and then throwing into the solu
tion of some sods. The camphor percipi
tates into snowy flakes which are collected
by passing the mixture through a filter,
when they are to be put in a vial containing
ciear aiconoj, in wnicn there has been al
ready disolved as much camphor as it will
take. The vial is then tightly corked and
put where it will not be disturbed, when it
is found to bean unerring index of the wea
ther. In fine weather the pcrcipitate will
rest on the bottom, but on tho approach of
a storm it will rise to the surface, with a
.tendency to the quarter opposite to that
from which the storm is coming the flake

1,000 persons one only reaches one hundred

1,000,000,000 of inhabitants. Oi these, 33,

an equal number of birth?. Tho married

all, those who lead a sober and industrious
conduct Tall men lire longer than short

previous to the ago of 50 years than men,
but fewer after. The number of marriages
is in proportion of 75 to 100. Marriages are
more frequent after the equinoxes that is,
during tho months of June and December.
Those born in spring are generally more re
bust than others. Births and deaths are
more frequent by night than by day. Num

A railroad conductor who wore a long,
roomy, white linen sack coat, with a stand
ing collar, and buttoned up to the chin, had
a dispute with a female passenger. The la
dy won the victory gloriously by the lollow-

are a purty fellow, aint you f You are the
first conductor I ever seed agwine about
aaaeng a passel ove decent wimtnen folks in

quickly, and unbuttoned the shirt tail coa.
A gentleman of this city, who takes a bu
