F.dltorlal Notlnge. A WTirn.lt in tho Mirrnr and Farmer, who slgns himaclf " Clodhopper," but who writes as glibly ns a achoolmnster, thus dctails hia experience: " I once bought 230 kcrncls of corn of an honcst man a business raan lierc for fifty cents. It was said to liave eara at every joint, froni flve to seven 011 a atalk, and was warranted to ripen in ninety daya. About the first of .runo I spnded np part of niy garden, made it rich witli rotten manure, drcw a line and put a kcrncl in the ground once in twelvc iHches. I took cxlra care of it, and it was about (it to boil wbrn frost struck it, nbout the 20th of Sep tembcr, and DOt a stalk bitd more tban two ears on it, allhough some of thetn werc twelve feet in hcight. I have had Norway oats, bald barley, hullcss oats and nunierous other nnvelties that did not aniount to dry dust to any farmer who bought expccting to im prove his crops." This illustrates a too common type of man, easily taken in by novclties, but so devoid of good judgment, and elernentary knowledge of farming, as to be an easy victim of every gailypalnted bumbug. There are plenty of men who mtght not ex press theiusclves half so readily with a pen who could scent a bumbug at once, and yet would have the sound judgment to select an occasional nov elty which would be of real benefit to theni. It is not astouishing to note that this farmcr's advised method for making money is to cut down the wages of thehulp, iu imitation of some minufacturing corporations. OvERMANURINQ with duniz also tends to make corn late by favoring an undergrowlh of stalk and leaf; but not latilfied witli buying a southern varietv to begin with, our "Clodhopper'' in creased its lateness by the petting be gave it. It tnay have been a ninety-day corn in Maryland or Tennessee. It is quite possible that the orlgiual grower toldthe truth on this point. If " Clod hopper" had anythlng beyond local routinc knowledge about corn be would first of all have Inqulred where the seed ctrn offered hitu at such a high price was grown. There are many early sorts of corngrownin the South that actually do ripen in ninety days from planting there; but here the same corn would not get heat enough in all summer to more than get iuto the silk, and anothcr cu rious thing about it is that it often grows twiceas tall when planted North as it grows at home. Our lower sum mer tempeiature is BUfficient to push on the growth of stalk and leaf, but not to develop the seed. nnd longer, but if uaed continuously for seed the product grows later and latcr. .Hjr Urniirifuthor. My grandfather bougbl a tract of land in New Hampshire, when he and my grandmother were young, and com menced life on it in a small house of two rooms. IIo began at once to dtg a ocllar and lay the foundation for a largc, square two-story house, such as we see going to decny all around. He hewcd the large timbers, he burned the biicks for chimneya and made by hand all tbe sbiugles, all the wbilc clcnring up tlie land and raising large crops. After working iu the woods all day he would shave shingles by lamp light till ten o'clock. It took scvcral years to do it, bul when tbe house was up and a few rooms tloored and plas tered tliey tuoved in. The rest of the work and the liuisbing aud painting was done. a little at a time, as he could pay for, and it was well and thoroughly done, and in time it was a liome to be proud of. Sixcbildren were born there, and all were strong and aotlve men and women of more than comnion ability in nmny things, aud to-day there is DO fairer siot in all thal region. Tbe elms he set out are now imtuense trees, and tbe stone-walls, built of the abundant material at hand, and double, are now so close a squirrcl can I ardlv (ind a way thrOUgh, and aborse might walk on top without displacing a stone. The small streams were spauned by stone bridgcs, and everylhing was made solid and to last. W iieti a man has made for bini sclf such a home he loves it as a part of his own life. I never knew but one man who dared ask btm to sell bll fnmi, and tbe anecdote will bear telling. A city-bred stranger called one day, with a Mr. ('., who was one of grandtather's neighbors, and began to talk about buy ing a farm. After some talk, be said he liked the looks of that place, and didn't know but Captain 1. would sell it, if he had a good nffer " a very good offer." Grandfather, who was Captain 1'., was a very large and powcrfully-built man, and when ex cited had a habit of closing his llpa and breathing very hard throttgb his nose, his nostrils quivering like tlmse of a race-horse. He was breathing hardeat. and looking at tbe small man With haif-shut eyes, in a way thatbodcd 1 mischief, and the man fairly turned 1 pale with apprehenalon, for be aaw at ouce he had " beardcd the lion in his den." After a minute or two grand father turned to his nei hbor and said: : " Mr. ( '.. did you ever know me to be in want of luoney?'' " Certainlv not," said Mr. C; "weall know Captain I'. has money enough and to spare, but thought perhaps if you could sell at a large prolit a very large protit, you kn w may be you might think of it. My friend here," he added, turning lo the city man, " has had a very large prop ertylefthim a large fortune." "Ab," said grandfather, " sell sell my farm, that I made out of a howling desert, a wilderness, every stick and stone of it! He may have a fortune of thou sands of millions, for all I know, and as mucli more on top of it; but," said be, fairly gasping for breath, " I tell you he hasn't enough to buy that roar ing, raging pattock bole down in the swamp lot, not by a big sight." The " pattock hole " was a place where a sort of large bull-frog lived hundreds of them, one would tbiuk bv the noise. I They were a nuisancc to tbe village I people, but he loved to sit on his door- I step of an evcning and bear them. I Without anothcr word be walked out I of the house and niutlered, in hiswratb: Sell sell mv farm to him?" liul be He could , never be beaten iu telling a story. I remember once a man from tbe Vest ern siates boaating of the large snakes they had out there. Grandfather evi dently thought he atretched the truth, or tbe snakes, and he replied, "Well, we have no snakes to speak of, and don't want any, but I have got a swamp full of bull-pattocks, every one of them as big as a side-saddle."

SECOND SEND-OFF The Eclipse Corn-Planler and Fertilizer-Distributor. Education for Fabmebs. The writer above quoted sueers at agricul tural colleges and, indeed, very few of them have as yet juatlfled theniselves J never apoke f it afterwarda oetorc tne people as good value for their cost. They could easily furnish a I better education for the farm. Hut perhaps the very poorest sort of school ingforayouth who is to follow auy induatrial art is the klnd of literary Btnatter that sone boys get at an acad emy where youth are prepared for col lege. This is the kind of " little learn ins.' " that is truly a " dangeroua thing." We have nothing to say againat a literary training, if it is thorough; but a literary stnattering leaves noth ing of value in the mitid; and is apt to give ua that sort of " borned eat tle " which siexcited Ilorace (Ireeley's ire youth who think they know a good deal, and don't know anything fully or eorrectly. This is not so apt to be the case with incomplete soientiflo teaching. If from a skilled teacher, it is good so far as it goes; and it is muoh more likely to be followed up aftewards, be cause it can be practically nnde use of in every-day affairs. This is the sort of learning that helps upon the farm. It is also the sort which so improves the judgment in regard to business affairs that such a corn, for instance,as took iu the " Clodhopper," would be knowu to be a fraud at sight by a rightly-tiaiued boy. ENSILAOE, Our observiug farmers are learning that southern corn, while giving a huge growth of stalk and leaf, contains even less nutriment than rur native corn, which will not occupy half as much space iu the ailu. It is prob ably advisable to grow for ensilage a corn somewhat later tban we should TOW for grain, becnuse when a corn la gbtaed, tbongb it may not ripen, it has in its stalk, leavea, cobs and grain the full amountof nutrimonl which ilcan aoquire,and as we do not need, to have it dry for the ailo, it is as well or better if tbe land has been properly prepared aud fartUUad, to grow the lurgest sort that will begiu to glaze before tho growing season is at an cnd. " 'u k Low." An adaeatad Peoob acot Indian, well acijuainted with (be traditions of his raoe, formulated the true theorv of saving soed-i orn in the north is these two words, " l'ick low." There is a full week's dilt'erence in the full maturlty of osrn ears from joint to joint, Higher ears are apt to be larger Talks on Farm Toplo8"No. This is an age of machinerv. In every induatry produciion is oheapened by its use. Too many farniera pay oul money for blred help that had better be paid for Improved toola. How many farmera bere in Vermont will apend a week or two in the bualeat season of the year furrowing' out their corn ground and then manuring in the liill? They will droji forkfuls of manure in the furrows manure that has lain iu heaps in the Qeld for weeks or tnouths then cover tbe manure and plant the corn by hand. This is a COBtly way to plant corn. The moderu way is to apread the manure iu the lall, winter or early spring, eilher wiih a manure apreader, when the ground is bare, or by hand on the biiow, when there is not so much work as in.tUe spring. Then the planting is done by a horse-planter, which drops a little fertilizr each side of tbe hill, mlxlng it with the soil, and which does better work than can be done by hand, planting at tbe rate of eight or ten acres a day. The corn can be planted in drills or check-rows, and tbe amOUUt of corn and fertili.er dropped can be accurately gauged. A handplanter is a great help aud lo(!s good work, but a horse-planter will do Better, and either will often pay for nseii in one season. Agaiu. how many farmera will culli vate their corn with an old-faabioned cultivator, the teeth of wbich are woin to stuhs, and then apend days iu boe ingi while other farmers harrow their corn till it is too high for tbe harrow, and then use a steel fratne horse-hoe, never carrying a haud-hoe iuto the Qeld, and very likely getting the best cropa of oornr Hut all oan not use a barrow. In a strong soil it will injure the corn, and is out of the QUeatiOD on a ildebill where tbe rowi do not run direotly up and down, Btonei are great bother, but aomebody must till atony land, and tbe best way is to do tbe best one can, and keep experimcnl ing till the beat ways are found, I think there la a lubatilute for the bar row on corn, but am not certaln yet. No farmer need fear to use a rianet, Jr., b irae-boe and oultivator on atony or rocky soil. There are probably as good or better toola, but it doei DratHilaaa work. Too many farmera use old, WOm-OUt toola, or, when they buy, lake fHKK KIITTH fol.lTMN.j -WERE A VRDED l the flrst thing that comca to hand, in stcad of looking around to flnd what ia beat.

TEN GOLD MEDALS Phosiihntic Experiincnts. Inasmuch ns the agricultural editor of the Watciiman, in his very kind notice of some experiments with which we were conncctcd, expressed surprise that mention was not made regarding the character of the South Carolina rock that was employed, it affrril- us pleaaure tO give the information tbat it was in tbe form of " lloats." We were also pleased to learn that there is one who, regnrdlessof unpleasant attacks of fcrtilizer-makers or unkind critieism of farmers' " papersf?), has been en gaged in the good work of detennining the most economical form for using phosphoric acid. These questions of economy lay close to the " pocket booka," if not to the hearts, of the farm ers, and the more clearly they can be determined the greater the good that is bcing accomplished. In our own ex perimenl the dissolved bone-black gave much the best results, to a limited use; and then, singularly enough, there was no increase of grain production, but a considerabie increase in fodder. This season a test will be repeated upon the sameplots,to mark theconlinued effect of tbe phosphoric acid in tbe various forms. It is quite reaaonable to sup pose that in the case of the dissolved bone-black a greater portion was ap propriated by the growing crop, and thal little or no effect will be seeu in a succeeding one, while, on the other hand, the other forms, yielding up the phosphoric acid more gradually, will show a more niarked response this sea son tlian tncy ilil last. men tne ijucs tion arises, How long can the farmer, who, as a rule, desires immediate re turus, aft'ord to wait for the phosphatic material to pass through the natural chetuical changes necessary to reuder the plant food product available? As before intimated, all of these (juestions depeud very much upon the economi cal side of tbe same. Even though it may in t'le end be far bjtter to employ a moderately-acting fert .lizingsubstance than one tbat is too rapid, it is difflcult to convinee the farmer who is looking for immediate returns and profits.
