It would bo well for a similar estimate to bo nuulo as to the pig-weed, mullein, fox-tail, chickweud, burdock, purslane, and last,but far from least, Cana da UiIhIIo, which so abound in this country. Not only tho prolilloaey, but tho ready growth of weeds, forms a most formidable obstacle to good husbandry, They seem to spring up and flourish as if there wore sonio special provision in the soil to favor their quick development. They always outgrow tho iweful forms of vegetation, unless you can favor them in some way, and givo them a start In advance No sooner is ono generation of them dostroyod than another starts into life, and it often seems as if tho ground literally swarmed with tho Beetls of theso noxious things. Many of them also are very tenacious of life. A war Of extermination, root and branch, is the only thing that will do for them. Leave the least spi !g or fibre, of them in tho soil, and they quickly re-establish themselves" - Yet, after all, theso discouraging facts about wcods havo another sido to them. Tho same provision for quick growth which fosters weed-life, Is necessary for tho useful forms of vegetation. Our nopo of smiling and abundant harvests rests on the same laws of nature under which weeds fructify so fast, and multiply so fearfully. Moreover, wcods, by their prenonco and growth, rouse vp energy on the part of tho tilk'fol' the soil, and compel that constant shaking and loosening up of the ground which is necessary to liigii and successful culture. There is only ono way of dealing with theso pissls. They must bo got rid ot. It is of no use to tamper with them, or to bo Mtistled with half way measures. To mow them down and to lot them speedily grow up afrain to leavo them by the fenco sido and in the fence corners to mature, and scatter their seed to let tliom get into lloyvcr and then cut them down when they havo vitality uuoiigh to perfect their seeds, leaving them to wither and tlio upon tho ground -theso arc some of tho slip-shod, make-believe methods of destroying woods. An energetic thhstlo or mullein laughs at such half-way work, and will infallibly increase and multiply in defiance of it. Wo must wake up to tho necessity of thor oughly eradicating weeds, l'ooplo ridi cule the idea of legislating on this subject, but the evil is tmcominir so serious that something effectual must bo done ; and if puolic sentiment cannot lio created, such as shall secure weed extermination, law must try its hand. In Michigan they havo statutes on this subject, that even "forbid throwing weeds Into the highway; and if we niut a law requiring utter eradication of weeds, thoueh its enforcement would bo troublesome and expensive at llrst, it wouiil lio In the cml a most beiietleial piece of lcmslatiou. under which tho ma terial interest:! of tho country would pros per grcawy. liimwn farmer. so Why Heap Up Manure. Tun old-fashioned practlco of compost ing all tuo contents or the yard, tho Btics, and tile stables, is attended with much labor, and is often imperfectly done or ncg- lecuxi altogether, lrom waul ol convie liou oi us utility. Tliere are tlio samo materials before and atler tho heaping, tho farmer reasons; why will they not benefit tiiu mini lis iiiugii iu Kuo minimum as in the other f Tho question Is lairly put, and ucmanus an answer. There are not ueces sarily tho same materials In a compost heap before, and after fermentation. If the contents of a yard wero swamp muck, peat, surface loam, various kinds of straw, sea-wced, kelp, and thomuure of horses, sheep and cattle, and if to theso was added iresh sly manure, or night soil, or a lew butihels of lime or ashes, tho whole mass would be thrown into fermentation, a nit new chemical combiuutlons would lake place, and the new com pounds would be wore immediately available for plant food. J usl how much the mass would be benefited by theso new combinations wo may not bo able to state, but no intelli gent farmer has any doubt of the higher value of fermented compost, for ordinary farm purposes. Another great advantage from this work is the increased fineness of the manure Sulilo manure is often carried out and spread in great frozen or dried lumps, and in this condition is plowed into the earth. It doubtless benefits the soil in this condi tion, but the roots of plauts are a long time in getting at their iood. We think it pays to fork over a manuro heap twice, and give it the full benefit of a second fer mentation. The hay and straw are all broken down by this process, and all tho materials of tho moss aro thoroughly mixed. Much of the immeilistu effect of manure depends upon its iinoncs. The time usually . allowed for compost iug is iiu'tv eiiutt, . uo ri'Illl(V UltTClLSUU i-tlurt of well-rotted manure has led somo to wish for a whole year to complete the process. This is ono of the poinU that we should like to sec accurately determined on an experimental iorm. Tho liquefying of all tho yard Manure is doubtless better than any comminution that we csiu attain by rotting, but tho necessary apparatus for doing this, and aiinlyinir it economically to tho fields, requires more capital than - most farmers havo to invest. Thorough composting is within tho means of all, and would always pay. Aiurictn Jgri-culturiat. More Turnips Wanted. Tim high prlco of ruta bagas in our city markets, the past spring, (two dollars a bushel at retail,) shows clearly that the supply is not equal to tho demand. HuU-bagas can bo raised for twcnty-tlvo cents a bushul, and the round turnips, as a stolen crop, tor less than ten cents. Farmers away from tho large markets pa very lilllo attention to this crop, i ought to Lave a place upon every farm where hogs and emtio aro kept, without reference to .city markets. Of course, If turnips go up to in cents or more a bushel, it will ordinarily pay belter to sell them than to consume them upon tho farm. Hut if prices are low, the farmer always has a good market at home. Most of tho turnips raised In England are turned into beef, mutton and wool, before they sre vild. Our climate Is not qulto go favorable as the EnglUh for this crop, but we havo never found any difficulty in growing satisfactory crops of all tho varieties of turnips. They are not nearly so nourish ing as tho potuto, but the yield is four or live times greater. They are valuable to food to milch cows along with hay, Indian meal, aud od cake, good for fattening bul locks ana sw.'ne, ud exceedingly profit tbio for sheep, whether one is making mutton or wool, or raisiug Uiaba. We have found them valuahlo tor home con sumption, and to not like to be without , tht-w. evon If we have plenty of beets and i-arroU. The old method, inherited from our F.nglixh ancestors, no doubt, was to yard bIk ep at night for several wetks upou tho t-!ece ot ground W bo sown to this crop. Just bef'ure the 25lU of Julvtha o rou nit was plowed and harrowed very thorough ir, nuu ""- mi mi- 60 wn brottdoaa, and put In - . ff.-.djn WltU WIVW1 ftal... rn.A... ly sown wju woou asues. with a garden rako, ot brush harrow. Tho crop hnd no cultivation, and yielded from four hundred to fight hundred bush els to tho acre. Tho noil usually selected was a sod or a fresh clearing. Upon now uround. the turnln Is usually nf lino final ity, and tho yiold largo. The yarding of thorp is a good preparation nf the soil, but tho broadcast sowing is discarded by tho best farmers. No crop pays bettor for sowing In drill, for thinning, and for fro quent cultivation, until tho loaves aro In the way of tho cultivator. Tho drills should be from fourteen inches to two feet apart, according to tho sizo of tho Va riety sow n, and the object for which they aro raised, with sufficient spaco left be tween the roots for hoeing. , Homo of the strnp-leafed varieties make short leaves, and tho "Cow-horn" grows quite high out of tho ground Willi a long tap-root These may be set in tho thickest drills, and quite closo together In the drill. Though tho hoe Is quite necessary In tho first weeding of tho crop, nearly all tho cultivntion may bo dono with tho harrow and cultivator, and tho aim should bo to use horse power ns much as possible. This Is essential to cheap turnips. After tho leaves cover the ground, tho crop may bo " laid by." Tho ruta baga is much more solid than the common white turnip, and rcoulrcs a longer lime to grow and arldhcr soil. It Is frequently sown in Juno, but the first week in July is early enough, on warm, louiny soils, cspcclaly if the crop Is raised for food. The turnip Is frequently grown upon ridges, and the manure placed in tho centro of tho ridge, and covered with the plow. Uy the sea-shore It Is a common practice to uso rock weed, freshly gathered, for this crop, bony fish, or the refuse after tho oil is pressed out. Fish guano and super phosphate of lime, aro among tho nest manures for turnips, whether applied broadcast and harrowed In, or directly to tho ridges. fiiMl pounds to tho aero of tho superphosphate, or a half ton of the guano, will bn good dressing. If tho ruta bagas aro raised for market, they should not bo allowed to grow too la'iro. Hoots from threo to five inches iu diaiueler sell much more roadily than those of twice the slzo. They nro easily kept iu pits, or upon tho surface of the ground, covered wltii straw and enrth. Tho strap-leafed turnips nro raised at Very small cost, by sowing among corn at tho last cultivating say tlio first week in August. If tho turn Is cut un by roots early in Hcptcmber, the turnips nave tho ground tho rest of tho season, and fre quently make Mil or 6(Hl bushels to tho acre on good soil. Let us have cheap turnips this year. AmtriMn Agrictilturiat. Thorough Culture of Corn. Tira frequent failures In attempting to raiso heavy crops of corn aro not usually much owing to I ho want of properly fitting tho soil, as In tho lack of giving luoroitgn cultivation wliiio tlio crop is growing. Although the amount raised per aero depends very materially upon tlio fertility ana preparation of the soil, yet In terior crops may Do grown upon mini that is canaille ol producing tlio Uesi. i arm ors aro not apt to select a field for corn that they know cannot bo put into good condition lor tho crop, nor are they apt to y, but alter tlio seed is in, too many fold their hands and consider the im- nortant part dono, It is u difficult matter to' raise it heavy growth of weeds and corn at tho same tlmo upon ono piece of tho land ; tho former must bo kept down if a good yield of grain is obtained. Weeds have always been ono great hindrnuce to successful corn raising, but they nro not so formidable an enemy ns many suppose. Advantago should bo taken of them, ami the plow or cultivator kept at work from tho limo tho corn rows first appear, until tho growth of grain is nearly complete. Ha labor upon the crop pays so well as thorough after cullure, ami to verify this statement let any farmer having two acres planted at tho samo time in ono field, give ono but little attention ami tlio other thorough cultiva tion, keeping account of time spent, ami at harvest nolo (he excess of grain from litis over the other piece hi payment for labor bestowed. (iood culture holds an equal position in potency lor crop-growing to that of barn yard manure; a hold somewhat worn will produce a heavier and better crop of corn If well tended, tliuu if heavily manured and neglected ; but on soil of Ibis kind the two work together admirably. Corn in time of drouth, however rich tho soil may bo by nature, or fertilizing apliances, has no agency aside from rain which will keep up the vigor and growth of tho crop, save the diligent uso of tho hoe and horse cultivator. fSoil kept open and loose will absorb moisture from the air, and drink in all tho dew that falls upon it. There is another important thing in tho growing of this crop that wo havo no ticed lor years, nnd thai is, giving the crop thorough dressing with double plow or cul tivator just as tho ears are forming or about the time tho "silking out" begins; culti vation at tins tlmo appears to give now impetus to tho growth of tlio stock, and tho ears are hiado heavier than they would otherwise bo. Then It appears that thorough culturo Is important in all seasons, and, nt all stages In tho growth of corn; in wet sea sons to keep weeds down; In dry Beasons to supply moisture; while the crop is young to invigorate, and while maturing to give it new life atil extra development. Ohio Farmer. When and How to Bud. IU'iniiNii, wo need hardly say, is tho process of removing a bud from ono tree or plant and inserting it In another tree of allied species. Tho object of budding Is tlio same as of grafting, viz.: to propagate a desirable sort of tree or plant. The only dillerenco octween a una ana a scion is that tlio lat ter is a development of the former. Fruit can generally oo obtained by grafting two years sooner man uy uuuuing. liui when a variety is very rare, we can by budding get new nmus irout single eyes, whereas, iu grafting we havo to uso threo or four eyes. Some trees, moreover, propagate more readily by budding than by graft ing. Tho stone fruits exude so much gum when grafted, that it is hard to succeed in tlio work. Then, too, in all kinds of fruit, whero grafting has failed, or been forgot ten in spring, buddiug may bo resortea to in summer. The usual time for budding Is from tho llrst of J uly to tho uilddlo of August. Hut a more accurate rule is to be found In the statu of tho buds and the bark. The shoot from which the buds aro taken must bo of tho current year's growth, and mut be mature. This maturity will be shown by tho forming of buds at tho axils of the leaves, and of the terminal buds. The lest buds for .working will bo found along the mtiiuio ot tuo snoot. I'lums usually finish their growth earlier than other trees ; hence tney aiioum tie iiikiuou ear liest. Next come cherries, and then ear, Ac, Tho bark must I in a condition to lift easily from tho wood, and there must be sap enough between the two to feed the young bud, and to help form a union with it. The practical operation of budding is simple. Tho method commonly followed in this country, culled thidd buMiitg, Is as ioiiows: Having cut a scion containing several good buds, choose a smooth, young limb for the operation, nud, it possible, let the insertion be made on the north side of the limb. With a sharp, thlii-bladed knife, cut a slit through the bark about an inch and a half long, and a cross cut at tho top of It. Then from your scion slice out a good bud, leaving a litths of tlio bark at tached. Now, with tho other end of your budding knU'e, raise the bark ol the stock, aud slip the bud Into tho slit, and press it down to tho bottom of it. Finish tho work by tyiu dowu the bark and bud with bass malting or woolen yarn, so as to exclude air and moisture from all except the point of the bud. Do the work quick, otherwise Iho bud will dry and bo less likely to grow. A minute is full long enough. AJtrt T)tilmfiit.la a fortnight after, examine the buds to see whether they have " taken." This may be dotermincd by their fretilineca and plumpness. As soon asllicy have " taken, tho bandages should be )ooseud a little, to allow for expansion of Imth stock aud bud.

TitTMut is probably no horticultural subjeeft upon which "lino Upon lino and prcoept upon pronept" are so freely given as that of pruning fruit trees. Kvory year and In each successive season somo of tho renders of our horticultural Jour nals call for Information on tho subject of pruning, and the question moat frequently asked is, what is the best tlmo to prune f Now ns pruning at different seasons of the year is dono to obtain dilfcrent results, it is obvious that tho query cannot be cor rectly answered, unless the peculiar cir cumstances of the and tho results which it may lie desirable to reach, are known, In regard to tho objects and effects of summer pruning or plnchlne, wo will quoto from somo eminent ami standard authorities. Thomas says i "Tho production of fruit buds may bo accomplished by sum mer pruning, which is eilectcd by pinch ing off tho soft ends of the side snoots af ter they havo made a few Inches growth. In this tho sap immediately accumulates, and tho young buds noon tho remainder f theso shoots, which otherwise would produce leaves, are gradually changed Into fruit buds. To prevent the break ing of theso buds into new Shoots by too great an accumulation of . the snp, a partial outlet Is left for its escapo through tho leading shoot of tho branch which, at tho samo time, is effect ing the enlargement of tho tree. This con stitutes essentially the art of trimmer prun in; dwarf and pyramidal trees, more es pecially the pear and apple. It may be ap plied with advantage to young standards to produco early fruitful ness. Downing says i "There aro advantages and disad vantages nltcndingall seasons of pruning, but our own experience has led us to be lieve that, practically, a fortnight be for o mid summer is by far tho best season, on tho whole, for pruning in tho Northern and Middle Slates. Wounds made at that seast n heal over rapidly and freely." Harry advises pinching tho shoots duriuir tho growing season, to regulate tho form of tno treo ami to promote early rruitftilness. Hummer pruning, or pinching, if faith fully and wisely performed, will obviate tho necessity of much other cutting. In this way the cultivator may train up his troe, and direct its growth to harmonious proportions, without being compelled to uso tlio knlf'o or saw severely at any period of Its life. Gratitude. The following anecdote is, of course, from Paris: A half-military anecdote Is In circulation. Hen. Cluscret, returning home lato ono evening, was attacked by an armed brigand. Tho great strength of tho General rendered him Indifferent to such iucldeuts ; hi? seized the rulllan by the throat nnd threatened to strangle him. On examining the captive more closely, Cluscret recognized -him as a personage with whom he had already bad dealings. "Why, you rascal, you are tho samo man Who robbed my tent iu Algiers of five hun dred francs in gold I" "Ah, General, but if you knew tho cir cumstances. They had written to me from Knropo that my poor mother was danger ously ill, and I wauled to scud her somo assistance, llut I entreat you, General, have somo pity on me ; giyo me my liberty this time, and I Bwoar to pass tho rest of my life In repentance, nnd repay you the sum I stole lrom you." Tho General granted tho prnyor, lot tho fellow go, and thought no more about tho mnttor. A loiur time afterward he re ceived a box containing 500 francs aud tho louowiug letter: "This restitution, General, proves to you that a good action is never lost. To obtain this stun, that I engaged myself to return to you, I have been obliged to beat out, mo oriuns oi two men, to lorco llirco secretaries, nnd break lu tho doors of throe Inhabited country houses.

' It is often supposed that those queer freaks of phraseology called bulls aro tho exclusive ollspring ot tlio Irish brain. This Is a mistake. A notable Instance of the fact that our Hibernian brothern have no monopoly In this gift of blundering in to tho delicious-absurd has just occurcd iu i'ingiunti, tho municipal council of C'annas, whero Lord Ilroughnm diotl, np plied to tho surveying brother in Kngland for permission to havo his Lordshio's body burled in their town.

Lnto one cvenlnc a collide of Irishmen stopped at a country inn aud asked for lodgings. Tho porter escorted thorn to ttio door ol their room, but Just as tho travelers entered It tho candle was extin guished by tho wind from tho door as it closed behind them. Tho porter had already returned to tho bar-room, and after vainly groping on the mantle-piece in search of matches, tho travelers re solved to go to bed in the dark. In tho middle of tho nleht one of them awoke, nud after shaking his comrade to arouse him, said : "Terrenco, I'm as nwiiko as a vacci nated kitten, for want of air. Get up and open tho window. Tho room is ns closo as a patent collln, and I'll dio if you don't j,'ot mo air." Torrenco arose, groped around the room ior n icw iiiinuies, men saui; "I've found tlio window, but bad luck to me if 1 can budge it. I can't move it aither up or down." " Then knock a couple of panes out w id ycr shoe, and we'll pay for them in the morning," said the sick man. Tcrrenco did as directed. After two crashes were heard bv tho man in bed ho seemed to recover, for he remarked : " Oh, that refreshing air is invigorating, I feel better already. Out wld a couple moro panes, glass is chape, and tho land lord won't bo angry whin wo'ro wllliu to pay for thim." Torrenco's stout brogan soon shattered tho remaining panes, and tho weak man recovered his exhausted strength so soon thereafter that in ten minutes more he was enjoying his slumbers, undisturbed by tho snore of his companion, who had also expressed himself refreshed by the current of fresh air admitted through tho broken glass. . . i Considerable tlmo elapsed, and at length tho travelers awoko.

DEMOCRACY. SENATOR MORTON ON THE NEW YORK PLATFORM AND NOMINATIONS. WASirtNoTON, July 10.8nnator Mor ton's speech In tho tJenalo Inst evening Is commented on by all llepublicans as striking tho key-noto of tho present cam paign. It ws In full, as follows : Mr. MortonI do not riae so much to discuss tho various propositions relative to counting tho electoral voto, as to say that I am for that offered by tho Honntor from Vermont, believing that it is more specific nnd direct thnn tho other two. llut perhaps any ono of them would an swer tho purpose I desiro, however, to sny ono word In regard to the importance of this measure. Wo havo been noting the proceedings of a Convention held iu the city of New York, which has but Just adjourned. I havo read tho resolutions adopted by Hint Convention tho platform of principles It has lnld down, nnd upon which IU candidates havo been placed, and I wish to call the attention of tho Benatc to tho Issue that Is presented to tho country by this platform and by tho character of theso cnndldates, General Grant, In his letter of occcptnnco, said : " Let us hnvo peace ;" but tho Democratic party by their Convention In New York hnvo said : " Let us havo war i there shall bo no pence." They have declared, in substance, I might say, perhaps, in direct terms, that tho reconstruction of these Htutcs under tho several reconstruction nets of Congress, shall not be permitted to stand, but shall bo overturned by mili tary forco if they get tho power. They havo announced that there shall bo no peaeo in this country, that thoro shall bo no settlement of our troubles except upon tho condition of the triumph of those who have beon In rebellion. This platform nnd those nominations nro a declaration of tho renowal of tho rebellion. Let mo call your attention to n part of tho eighth resolution, In regard to this very question. In speaking of the reconstruction of tho States, they go on to sny that the power to regulato sull'rngo exists with ench State, making no dill'orence between loyal States that havo been nt peaeo, nntl (States that havo been in rebellion, putting them nil upon tho samo footing; nnd "that any at tempt by Congress on nny pretext wbnt ever" that is upon tho pretext of tho re bellion, if you plcnso " to deprive nny Btato of this right, or lutcrrero with its oxerclso, is a flagrant usurpation of power, flud no warrant in tho Constitution, and If sanctioned by tho people will sub vert our form of govorment;' They de clare that the interference of Congress with sum-age In tho States that hnvo been in rebellion, though that Interference may bo absolutely necessary, ns wo havo found It to bo to tho reconstruction of tho Htates, is unconstitutional, nnd that no lustiUea tion can bo found for It, and Unit it will subvert our form of government. This Convention has called upon the rebels of tho South to retard theso irovcrn- ments organized by authority of the acts of Congress by the peopio of those States ns usurpation, unconstitutional, and void; nnd has thereby invited them ngnln to in surrection nnd rebellion. That is what that resolution means. Thcro is whero tho Democratic party has placed itselfand Us candidate that thcro shall bn no an- quIoRccnco in tho action of Congress, and thatconliuusd rcsistanco is and shall bo their policy. They havo replied to Gen. Grant by saying " There shall be no peaeo, but tho war shall bo renewed." There can bo no other policy for that party unless it ocqulcBcos. If it docs not accept theso re construction acts, there can bo no policy but that of resistance and a renowal of tho war. They declare these reconstruction acts to be unconstitutional and void. Be ing void nobody is bound to roenrd tlmm. They havo no authority over nny ono to coerco or to punish, nud may bo resisted by any ono with impunity. That is not the language of this resolution, but it is tho substance and menniug of it, and in consequence or this received tho indorse ment and tho approbation ot the hundreds rebels who wero in that Convention from tho Southinon who organized tho rebel Government, and organized aud led tho rebel armies in battle. Thin, then, is the issue. A continuanco of tho war, a renewal of tho rebellion, because it is either that or it is submission and acquies cence to what has been dono. llut, Mr. President, wo aro not left to grope for tho meaning of this Convention. Wo aro not left even to seek for it bv in. fereneo. We have tho letter of Gen. Frank P. lllair, written, I believe, less than ono week HL'O. mid that letter luia luu dorsed by that Convention this afternoon ny ins nomination as their candidate for the Vice-Presidency. It is as much a part pi their platform as if it was Incorporated in it, for tho ink w as hardly dry beforo it was indorsed by his nomination, I re peat, Blr, this lottor Is a part of tho Demo cratic plat form. Gen. Illalr, whatever you may say of him, Is a bold, outspoken man, ami ho spoko tho sentiment of that Con vention. He says: "Upon these senti ments I want to stand before tho Conven tion," and upon these sentiments ho was nominated. Therefore, I say that tho lan guage of the Democratic Convention at Now York to tho whole country is war; resistance by forco of arms to Congres sional legislation ; tho overthrow by forco of arms of tho governments that have been erected in tho rebel States under tho laws enacted by Congress; tho continuanco of ims rouciuon, continuanco of thisstruinrlo in a somewhat dillerent form, but still tho same struggle, contending for tlio same principles. It is now announced formally, not at Montgomery, not at Richmond, but at Washington. Tlio country need not bo nt a loss to un derstand tho character of the contest upon w hieh wo are entering. It is not one of peace aud acquiescence, of consolidation whereby tho ravages of war may bo re paired. But it is a now declaration of war, a now announcement of tlio rebellion, under somewhat dillerent circumstances, but under circumstances formidable, dan gerous and solemn. Let the country look the struggle lu tho faeo. Gen. Blair has said truly that all that is said about green backs and bonds and questions of liuunco is moro nonsense. Tho great issuo is tho question of overturning tho new Slate government by forco, tlio restoration of mo rebels, or, as they call it, tho white men s government lu thosu Slates, nnd all the rest is lotclier and prunellas. Wo owo a debt of gralitudo to Gen. Illalr Tor his frankness. There need bo uo deceptiou practiced now, and there can bo none. There can bo no other Issuo presented sub stantially to us, but that of the future peace of tho country. If Seymour shall be elected on that platform, he stands pledged to uso tho nrmy of the United States for tho purpose of overturning tho governments that havo been established in tho South by the whole people. aud by that army to place tho power back again Into tlio hands of tho rebels mat, wero with him iu that Convex tion.

Conquered. Not tho easiest question In tho world to ask. Yet Phil Graham asked it, bravely : and stood waiting ins answer, Ins naud some face flushed slightly, his dark eyes eionucnt wan emotion. Mr. Bulbous evidently wns not excited ; in fact, he rather en loved Phil's confusion. To tell the truth, he had heard the same amount of pleading, dozens of times be- loro, irom enamored voiine men, wuo nad done him the honor to ask for the hand of his daughter heiress, pretty Emily Bui bona. Yet, somehow, he could not eo through the usual polite formula of rejection this morning. Certainly thcro was something in Fhil's favor, that no other suitor had yet attained to; lor iMiniy ncrsell loveu nun, and, be tween Phil's manly pleading and Emily's open perferment, the samo old bunker was siigutiy pn..ieu. unly once lio thought ol a death-bed. whero ho had made a solemn promiso to Philip's father, tho friend to 'whom ho owed most of his own prosperity, to watch over his only son with a tenderness and love that should repay him for tlio guiding hand that death had taken from him. But that was years ago, and a great com mercial crisis had swept away l'hil s for tune. Was it not his duty to provido for his daughter a husband rich enough to match the Bulbous brown-stono front, and bank stock, and liveried equipage T And yet lie could not help leclintr that Phil's true worth and manliness would do more for his daughter's happiness than all tho wealth and jewels, and what ho knew was tho false glitter and show of fashion able mo, mat no could bestow upon Her, nut men run was only an author, a rising ono certainly; but, if the nineteenth century liberality of publishers has dono awny wiin the romanco oi poetic nllies and dyspeptic misery of fifth-rato board ing-houses, it has not niadu authors mil lionaires. Possibly, it will do so lu tho future. It is to bo hoped so I "I am afraid your incoino is not large lough to support a wife," tho banker said. at last, seeing the necessity for saying something. " My Income is over a thousand a year, Bir." Mr. Bulbous smiled grimly. "About half as much as Emily spends in a year ior pin money," nc saw, brusquciv. "But I am rising in my profession, sir. ana wmuy nas promised to wait " " jonsen8e," interrupted is unions "your income will never be any larger. Everybody writes stories now-a-davs. Why, bless you, Phil, I could do it myself easily." I Hnd it very much tho custom for peo ple, wno know nothing about authorship, to linacino that it is a flower-strewn nath with unlimited greenbacks and undying 1 1 - ' . J! . luureis m convenient uisiuuccs. But one that travels it knows better. Certainly, thcro are laurels and roses. and genius plucks them. Ah t but the thorns I tho thorns I Phil smiled a littlo at tho banker's asser tion. Ho was thinking of his owo experi ence as an amateur. "You are certain of this?" ho asked. quietly. " Certain of it f of course, I am," This a littlo indignantly. Phil's eyes sparkled mischievously, ns ho thought of the 11 cure tho nortlv old banker would cut In an editorial sanctum. " I hopo you don t doubt my ability t ' " Of course not, only I should " " I'll write a story this very day," said Bulbous, desperately, now thoroughly aroused by Philip's incredulty. "If it isn't accepted beforo night, I'll give you " uive mo your daughter." " On ono condition." "Name it." "If 1 win, you mnst withdraw your claim to fter forever," said tho banker, thinking he had disposed of another suitor. Phils face paled a little, and pretty Emily clasped her white hands implorine- ly, but ho answered flnuly, " I accept the oner." " I thiuk I will writo a little sketch cfter tho manner of Dickens." the bankc said to himself, as the lovers sauntered out slowly into tho long walks of the conser vatory; "something that will be above the blood and thunder stylo of ordinary romance." But half au hour's nttempt, with fre quent extracts from Oliver Twist, convinc ed him that tho task was hopeles. In live minutes ho could havo written something mat would nave stnrtied nail mo brokers, from Trinity Onurch to Wall street ferry, out of their senses. But to writo Dickens, that was impossible. Then ho ordered somo porter, and, four hours Inter, emerged from tho library, with half a dozen sheets or manuscript that was to make him fa mous. Bo he imagined. "I think I will take It to Harpers," ho saui, as no ordered mo carriage. A long ride and a short walk took him over the busy streets, through the great counting-room, and up tho winding stairs to the editorUl sanctum. " Mr. Bullions," he said, pompously, as ho entered and pre sented ma manuscript, wiin an air oi con descension. The editor did not seem very much awed by his august presence. Bo he re peated tho name. "Ah I yes; from Minnesota, ain't you?" The banker looked horrilled. " I never expected to flud such Ignorance, especially iu au editor," ho thought, indignantly. "1 really don't think wo can use your article," the editor said, returning it Tho great tiankcr went out, mentally rcsolvbig to start an opposiliou magiuiite, aud crtibh out Harpers past all redout pliou. " AtXer all, one can't xiect to get into the magazines at tirst," he said, after he had consoled himself with lobster salad and a sherry colder. " I'll try some of the weekly papers." "Out a manuscript. You can call In the course of a week or two, and we will give you an answer." . "Couldn't you examine it now t" asktd the banker, who began to think he had (alien among the riiilUtinea, " Impossible, air. Must take your chauce with a hundred others." "But PhilPhilip Graham, he" "Is ouu of our regular contributors g author, would you iikc an autograph, sir?" " Autograph ! No, I thank you." , Two more papers wero tried with Iho same objections. " I'll try tho dailies next," be said, in desperation. " Wish to see the editor," sirf Hcvcnlh floor, rear room, to the right." Mr. Bulbous mndo one more effort. ' " Don't publish stories in tho daily press. It's entirely out of our lino, sir." And tho wealthy banker took his pontv too down seven llights of stairs, with tho comforting assurance that he had lost his wager. Tho lovers f till sat by tho fountain In tho conservatory, when ho went to find them. . It's my firm belief they didn't now whether ho had been gono twenty- four hours or twenty minutes. "You can have her, Phil, for I've lost," he said, quietly, " and I'll see that your Income is largo enough to keep her, now you've won her." JVuts York Courier. w H O o o A Glover's Town.
