made the simple statement that the
father of the child had died recently,
away from home. that the mother had
been on a visit to her friends and had
died while on the visit, that her dead
body was on board the train. and that
the child was in the arms of a woman
who was a stranger to it. It was
enough. There was a tear in nearly

TERRA-CUmuLnLU.--Here's a now in
vention that is attracting the attention
of Eastern agriculturists. It is a dis.
covery of a principle of natural law in
vegetation, by Mr. Russell Comstock,
Mabiettsville, Dutchess County,, New
By the terra-culture all kinds of
trees, forest, fruit and ornamental,
flourish; peach trees froun fifty to a
hundred years old, partially decayed
and barren, are re tored to a healthy
and thrifty condition, as when young,
in a sigle seast, so as to produce
the most abundant and finest fruit.
The same results are produced upon
all fruit trees, and what seems scarcely
less remarkable, it appears that the
precise age of trees are ascertaitni and
determined by Mr. Comnsteek's theory.
The terra-culture has been applied
to all kinds of garden vegetables,
plants, fruits and shrubbery, as also to
all kinds of crops, with wonderful site
cess. We cannot go into details of
what experinietnts have proved. Crops
of grain and vegetables are, at a great
saviMg (of labor, m<>re tam dloubled by
terra-culture. Onc experiment shows
the production of 135 bushel.Af shell
ed corn to the acre, and another the
production of 1000 busiels MerceF p1.
tatocs to the acre. IL is also shown
that the great crops w h'icb have coin
manded. premiumsthe agricultural
fairs, have been duced ttecidenudly
by terr - 1 4
