WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR FARM.
There are not a few cnterta-iuinj:
people of (he cities, who imagine that
a farm of one or two hundred acres
has a way of managing itself; and
that it works out crops and cattle from
time to time, very much as small beer
works into a foamy ripeness, ly a law
of its own necessity.
I wish with all my heart that it were
true; but it is not. For successful
farming, there must be a well digested
plan of operations, and the faithful
execution of that plan.
I am satisfied that a great deal of
hindrance is done to agricultural pro
gress by those who, while they have
only the best intentions in the matter,
have, nevertheless, farmed it in a prodi
gal and careless manner, to be indulged
in only by those having large means,
and having written glowingly of their
efforts have led other men of less means
to try the same line of farming to their
ruin. My friend, Mr. Tallweed, for
instance, after accumulating a fortune
in the city, is disposed to put on the
dignity of country pursuits, and ad
vance the interests of agriculture. lie
purchases a valuable place, builds his
villa, plants, refits, exhausts architec
tural resources in his outbuildings, all
under the advice of a shrewd Scotch
man recommended by Thorburn, and
can presently ni-ake such show of dain
ty cattle, and. of mammoth vegetables,
as excites the stare of the neighbor
hood, and leads to his enrollment
among the dignitaries of the County
Society.
But the neighbors who stare have
their occasional chat with: the- canny
Scot, from-' whom they lcanv that the
expenses of the business are "gay
large ;" they pass a quiet side wink
from one to the other, as they look at
the vaulted cellars, and the cumbrous
machinery ; they remark quietly' that
the multitude of implements docs not
forbid the employment of a multitude
of farm ''hands ;" they shake their
heads ominously at the extraordinary
purchases of grain ; they observe that
the pet calves are usually indulged
with a wet nurse, in the shape of some
rawboned native cow, bought specially
to add to the resources of the fine-
blooded dam ; and with these things
in their mind they reflect.
If the results are large, it seems to
them that the means are still more ex
traordiary ; if they wonder at the size
of the Crops, they wonder still more
at the liberality of the expenditure ; it
seems to them, after-full comparison
of notes with the "braw" Scot, that
even their own stinted crops would
shew at better balance- sheet for the
farm It appears to them that if
premium crops and straight-backed
animals can only be had by such pro
digious appliances of men and money,
that fine farming is not a profession to
grow, "rich by. And yet, our doubtful
friends of the homespun will enjoy the
neighborhood-of such a farmer, and
profit by it ; they love to sell him
"likely young colts;" they eagerly
furnish lijm with butter (at the- town
price),, ami ossibly with eggs ; his
own fowls being mostly fancy ones,
bred fox-premiums, and indisposed to
lay largely ; itv short, they liko to. tap
his superfluities in a hundred ways.
They admire Mr. Tallweed, particular
ly mori Fan days, when he appears
in the digsity of manager for some
rpecial interest ; and remark, among
theiiHelvcs, that "the Squire makes a
thuniloriii' U tter committee-man, than
he ilot-s fanner." Ail hen they read
f Lnn hi their agriculturist, they
laugh a little in their fdeevt-s in a quiet
wav, and conceive, I am afraid, the
same unfortunate diMnift of the farm
journal, which we all entertain of the
political onct. Ike Marvki.l.
Since our county contains no large
villages, we will try to lear in mind
that a large hhare of our readers are
agriculturist and should consequently
have a generous iortioii of our pajnr
devoted to their interests. We invite
correspondence on practical farm sul-
jects through our columns ; and think
it especially important for our farmers
to interchange views in the columns of
a local paper, because by knowing the
character of the climate, soil and lay
of each other's land they can lietter
judge how for the experience of one
would be practical and advisable to
another. There is a vast dilferenee
1 iet ween a sunny sand hill and a cold
boggy northern slope. We apprehend
that one reason why "look farming"
is not more successful is because men
do not give suflicient heed to the great
differences there are in soils and situa
tions. A, who cultivates a clay farm
writes enthusiastically of what he has
done am) how he did it, whereupon, J,
whose farm is a sand plain endeavors
to do as A did and fails. 1$ then
thinks A was a fraud and that book
farming don't pay. The idea that nny
one can successfully run a farm is a
mistake. It requires a great amount
of common sense, forethought, and
wise planning to make it pay a fair
per cent on the investment. Farmers
aught, therefore, to lonrn all they can
of the experience of other, and then
bring to bear good sound judgment
in determining to what extent they
will be governed by that experience.
Having been reared on a farm and
having spent three years apprentice
ship, as a practical nurseryman we
hope to bring at least a little common
sense and practical knowledge to bear
in editing the Farming interest of this
paper.
HOUSEKEEPING HINTS.
Stkamki) Indian Mkal Bukad.
One quart of Indian meal (yellow,) one
pint of flour, two-thirds teucupful mo
lasses, one tablespoon ful soda, salt,
and sour milk to make a thick batter
not too still'; put it in a pan as for
bread and steam it three hours, then
iake one-half hour,
(iit.wi.ut Bkkah. Take two cupfuls
of sour or buttermilk, and one of
sweet milk ; two cupfuls of Graham
and one of white flour, half a teaspoon-
ful of salt, and one of soda ; mix the
soda and the salt with the flour , and
then add the milk, making all into
dough ; bake from one to two hours.
To Rkliuve EAii.uiii:. Take a
piece of fat salt pork and make a plug
half an inch long, in such a shape that
one end will fit in the ear like a cork
the other end large enough to keep
it from slipping in. It gives relief in
a few moments. If the piece is likely
to drop out, tie a handkerchief over
the ears.
Potato Salad. Boil about a quart
of small potatoes ; peel them ; cut up
one-quarter pound of clear smoked
pork into very small slices ; fry them
brown ; then pour two tablespoonfuls
sweet oil, half a goblet full right sour
vinegar and a goblet full of water inot
the pan, and heat this all together ;
put into a bowl, cut up a small onion
and throw in a handful of salt ; cut
the potatoes in very thin slices ; have
the salad ready half an hour before
you wish to use it.
CARDING THE CATTLE.
A good idea, that of Brother Tink-
ham, of the Green Mountain Free
man, to utilize the old worn up corn
brooms in the cattle stables. He
says : "We have seen people card
cattle when we thought neither carder
nor animal much enjoyed it ; the ani
mal would cringe and shrink away
from the card, and the carder would
tear round and scold, because it did
not keep still, evidently not thinking
this was the only way the animal had
of telling him he hurt. You never
see a man rubbing his back against
the door-easing unless it itches, nor
do cows care to be carded unless they
have the same occasion, and then not
hard enough to make it a pain instead
of a pleasure. We have found an old
broom cut off up near the "tying" to
be an excellent article for grooming
cows, especially about the roots of the
tail, where a card will not work;
while not harsh enough to be painful,
it will scratch nicely, and reach where
the card will not. About as much
solid comfort as usually falls to the
lot of mortals in this w icked world,
may be taken, by the man who loves
animals, in seeing them stretch theni'
selves under his brush, or follow him
about and poke their noses under his
arm, or hold, down their-heads to be
scratched, as natural as folks. Try
the old broom, bovs, and see how it
works.
TEMPERANCE.
A SAD CAREER.
The Kiwer of appetite fr strong
drink i more forcibly illustrate"! in the
following account of the wreck of a
talented young man, than we have
ever seen it illustrated iK'fore.
J. J. Tallot, of Indianapolis, ditsl
at South Bend, Ind., on the 2d ult..
aged 39. In early life he studied for
the ministry and liecame a Methodist
clergyman, ."suusequcnir , aner inn
marriage at Louisville, ho joined the
Fpiscopal Church and had charge of a
wealthy pastorate, and during tne re
Ik'IHoii acted as chaplain for a Ken
tucky regiment. He left the ministry
and liecame a lawyer. He was at one
time a inemlier of Congress from Ken
tucky. He finally yielded to an in
herited appetite for strong drink, and
fell to a very low level, but was
reclaimed, and became a very ef
fective advocate of temperance, lie
w as the head of the Order of Good
Templars in Indiana and seceded with
the British delegation.
Hon. Schuyler Colfax, in a recent
letter referring to his death, says of
Mr. Talliot: "He has made hundreds
of eloquent and touching appeals for
temperance all over our state within
the past two years, but told mc that
the appetite would sometimes become
insatiate as to almost defy control,
thoughjie prayed on bended knee for
strength to resist it. I remember the
terrible picture of his own experience
copied in the enclosed article, lie
lelivered it here, to a crowded audi
ence, hundreds of whom, like myself,
were in tears, and he uttered it in de
sponding tones that seemed almost
like the wail of the lost, and as if he
felt his impending doom was inevita
ble."
We quote the following extract re
ferred toby Mr. Colfax:
"But now that the struggle is over.
I can survey the field and measure the
losses. I had position high and holy.
This demon tore from around me the
robes of my sacred oflice, and sent me
forth churchless and godless, a very
hissing and by-word among men. Af
terward I had business, large and lu
crative, and my voice in all large courts
was heard pleading for justice, mercy
ind right. But the dust gathered on
my unopened books, and no footfall
crossed the threshold of the drunk-
ird's oflice. I had money ample for
all necessities, but it took wings
.ind went to feed the coffers of the
devils which possessed me. 1 had a
home adorned w ith all that wealth and
the most exquisite taste could suggest .
This devil crossed tt.i threshold and
the light faded from its chambers ; the
lire went out on the holiest of altars,
and, leading me through its portals,
despair walked forth with her, and
sorrow and anguish lingered within.
I had children, beautiful, to me at
least as a dream of the morning, and
they had so entwined themselves
around their father's heart that, no
matter where it might wander, ever it
came back to them on the bright wings
of a father's undying love. This de
stroyer took their hands in his and led
them away. I had a wife whose charms
of mind and person were such that too
see her was to remember, and to know
her was to love. For thirteen years
we walked the rugged path of life to
gether, rejoicing in its sunshine and
sorrowing in its shade. This infernal
monster couldn't spare me even this.
I had a mother who for long, long
years had not left her chair, n victim
of suffering and disease, and her
choicest delight was in reflecting that
the lessons which she had taught at
her knee had taken root in the heart
of her youngest born, and that he was
useful to his fellows and an honor to
her who bore him. But the thunder
bolt reached even there, and there it
did its most cruel work. Ah ! me ;
never a wqrd of reproach from her
lips only a tender caress ; only a
shadow of a great and unspoken grief
gathering over the dear old face ; only
a trembling hand laid more lovingly
on my head, only a closer clinging to
the cross ; only a more piteous appeal,
to Heaven if her cup at last were not
full. And while her boy raved in his
wild delirium two thousand miles away,
the pitying angels pushed the golden
gates ajar, and the mother of the
drunkard entered into rest.
"And thus I stand : a clergyman
without a cure; a barrister without
brief or business ; a father without a
child ; a husband without a wife ; a
son without a parenfj,; a man with
scarcely a friend ; a soul without a
hope all swallowed up in the mael
strom of drink."
The immediate cause of the death
of Mr. Talbot, who was suffering from
a recent relapse into intemperance,
was inflammation of the stomach and
congestion of the brain. After a
fierce struggle he died with a blissful
hope of divine favor.
Intemperance is tod broad a term to
be confined to the immoderate use of
alcohol alone. It includes excessive-
indulgence in any direction.
OLD DRINKING HABITS IN MAINE.
The BruiiKwiek (Me.) Telegraph
print a communication, which, tqieak
ing of resident of the adjoining town
of Ti'psham, fifty years ago, hays: In
one family of live jktsoiis, three of
them would each punish three pints of
New F.ngland rum every day ; the
other two M-rhaps a little le. Why
I can lie so Hpeoific, I was a clerk in a
store at Topsham and had them for
customers. Another instance : we had
an old man, who was a customer when
I went there and was there when I
left, who J urvhased a pint and a half
of gin every day, and Saturdays three
pints. He had it charged, paid his
bill monthly, and never purchased an
other article to my recollection. His
family consisted only of himself and
wife, and she an estimable women,
therefore he must have used all of it
himself. The average sales at our
store were at least $10 a day, amount
ing to $:j,(MH) per annum. There
were five other stores in Topsham.
and I have every reason to believe
that they sold as much rum as we did.
Brunswick had three times as many
stores, besides three successful hotels
(Topsh.mi.h.id none). I think she
muiil have sold at least double the
quantity of Topsham. With Ii'cw
Kngland rum at forty cents a gallon,
and the best of imported liquors at $1 ,
in almost every otlicr family in Top
sham there was a drunkand or drunk
ards. The evil became so great that
the people grew alarmed. Two gener
ations of my own family on both sides
of the house suffered severely.
CUR LITTLE FOLKS,
THE HONEST BOY.
"0 Charlie How ard ! see what you
have done," said his little playmates ;
"you have broken that large pane of
glass in the jipotheeary's window. He
is a cross man, and will scold you real
hard when he sees you."
"I am not afraid of him," said
brave little Charlie. "My dear mama
has always said that 'honesty is the
best policy,' and 1 mean to go and tell
him it was, an accident, and that I will
work in his tttore, as my papa is poor,
and I cannot give him the money for
it."
That night when ' Charlie went
home, he said, "Mama, w hat do you
think your little boy has done to-dav?
broken a large pane of glass in Mr.
Morrison's window ! After I had done
it, I thought of what you have always
said, mid I went right away and told
him that I did not mean to break the
glass, Xiiit woul work to pny ' for it.
W hat do you think he said, mama (
lie said I was a good little boy, and
that he should not care for any pay, and
asked me to come again and see him."
"My dear boy," said his mama,
putting her arms around his neck,
"you do not know how happy it makes
me feel to know I have got an honest
little boy ; and may he always find
that 'honesty is the best policy'."
May all my little readers remember
that if they are honest in everything,
it will be said of them that they
always tell the truth. L. B. Gou-
DKX.
THE WAY TO CONQUER.
"I'll master it," said the ax, and his
blows fell heavily on the iron, but ev
ery blow made his edge more blunt, till
he ccasod to strike.
"Leave it to me," said the saw : and
with his relentless teeth he worked
backward and forward on its surface,
till they were all worn down or brok
en ; theii he fell aside.
"11a ! ha !" laughed the hammer ; ,,I
knew you wouldn't do it ; I'll show
you the way ;" but at his first stroke,
off flew his head, and the iron remain
ed as before.
"Shall I try?" asked the soft, small
flame. They despised the flame, but
he curved gently round the iron and
embraced it, and never left it until it
melted under his irresistible influence.
ThcT7ftTTiie&rts hard enough to re
sist the force of wrath, the malice of
persecution, and the fury of pride, so
as to make their acts recoil on their
adversaries ; but there is a power
stronger than any of these, and hard,
indeed, is that heart that can resist
love.
"THE LITTLE FOXES THAT SPOIL
THE VINES."
One little fox is "By-and-by." If
you track him, you comg to his hole
which is never.
Another little fox is "I Can't."
You had belter set on him an active,
plucky little thing, "I can" by name.
It does wonders.
A third little fox is 'Xo t'so in
Trying." He has spoiled more vines,
and hindered the growth of more fruit,
than many a worse-looking enemy.
A fourth little fox is "I Forgot."
He is very provoking. lie is a great
cheat. 1 le slides through your fingers
like time. He is seldom, caught up
with., ;
A Fifth little fOx is "Don't Care."
Oh) the mischief he liis done.
Sixth little fox is "No Matter." It
is matter whether your life is epoilcd
by small faults.
A DISTINGUISHED MAN.
Adam Uicse. lie was a German,
and the first man who undertook to
lay down in a IkmiW the art of cipher
ing, hitherto hidden away in a few
learned heads, and, by doing this,
rendered a very great service to com
mon education. For, while in our
times even the very jioorcst may, if
they will, learn to read, write, and
cipher, it was once considered a sign
of unusual learning when one wasbut
ill-versed in these three arts. The
mightiest generals, yes, princes them
selves, could not even sign their own
names, but had to content themselves
w ith affixing their seals, or making the
mark of the cross.
With reckoning, or arithmetic, it was
worse still, and tl3 one times one, or
multiplication-table, with which you
are all so familiar, was indeed, at that
time, a thing of the "higher mathe
matics." Not that the whole reahn of
the science of nunilicrs in the broad
est sense of the word, has been open
ed up in the last two or three centu
ries, for there were already, among the
ancients, great mathematicians, Eu
clid, Pythagoras, and others ; but all
mathematical knowledge beyond the
ability to count units or tens was the
exclusive possession of the most
learned, w hile all others were in a state
of pitiable ignorance with regard to it.
To remedy this evil of ignorance,
Adam Kiese wrote his arithmetic, and
by it laid the foundation for the popu
larizing of mathematics. Adamltiese
was born in 1402, somew here in Saxo
ny, but where is unknown. It is
claimed that his birthplace was Anna
berg, but it is an undisputed fact that
this place was not founded till MHO.
In 1 2, Riesc had his little reckoning
book printed under the title, "Reckon
ing upon Lines and by Figures." In
102.") appeared a second edition. At
this time he lived in Annaberg, and
turned his skill in figures to good use
by keeping the accounts of extensive
mining companies. He was a school
master besides, and, in his own pri
vate school, taught his art of arithme
tic, both on a counting-board with
coins and by figures also. lie died in
the year 1 '!). His two sons, Abra
ham and Jacob, were not less distin
guished than their father as arithmeti
cians, especially Abraham, who gain
ed high honor ; while his sons also,
Ileinrich and Carl liiese, sustained
fully the reputation of their grandfa
ther.
Ill ancient times, ninV tUoeailies it
of the Middle Ages, the Roman s
sys-
tern of numbers prevailed, by which
certain letters expressed a fixed num
ber of units without changing their val
ue with their place. Christianity was
borne everywhere upon the wings of
the Latin speech, and its 'quickly won
sovereignty impressed upon other peo
ples many of the different usages of
the Roman empire.
About the year 000, the European
world received by Gerbet, afterward
1 'ope Sylvester II, knowledge of an
entirely new and much simpler art of
reckoning. G crbcrt spent several years
in Moorish Spain, and studied hard at
her high schools, lie made the ac
quaintance of the mathematical and
astronomical works of the Greeks in
Latin translations, and became famil
iar w ith the Arabic system of enumer
ation. After he, in !J9i), ascended the
Papal chair, he used every means to
spread throughout Europe a knowl
edge of this Arabic method. But he
succeeded only with the learned ; the
common people got very little idea of
the whole matter, and continued to
make diligent use of their thumbs and
fingers for the little reckoning which
they found necessary in daily life. But
Adam Riese broke the ban, and kin
dled a new light in the dark night
of Middle Age ignorance. Riese did
not number from right to left, as we
do, but from left to right, the word
million he did not use at all. The
numbers 07,345,123,45s, Riese would
not read in our way, but as follows :
Seven and ninety thousand thousand
times thousand, three hundred thou
sand times thousand, five, and forty
thousand times thousand, hundred
thousand, three and twenty thousand,
four hundred and eight and fifty.
This arithmetic passed through ma
ny editions, and was held in high es
teem and authority for fully two hun
dred years.
If you cannot be a great river, bear
ing great vessels of blessings to the
world, you can be a little spring by the
dusty wayside of life, singing merrily
all day and all night, and giving a cup
of cold water to every weary, thirsty
one who passes by.
A little girl, showing her little cou
sin, about four years old, a star, said,
"That star you see up there, is bigger
than this world." "No, it isn't," said
he. "Yes, it is." "Then why doesn't
;it keep the- rain off ?"
"It's all over with me 1" as the pan
cake said, when it was turned.

Some Nose. Deacon C , of
Hartford, Conn., is well known as be
ing provided with an enormous handle
to his countenance, in the shape of a
huge nose ; in fact, it is remarkable
for its great length. On a late occasion,
when taking up a collection in the
church to w hich he belonged, as he
passed through the congregation, every
person to whom he presented the box
seemed to be possessed by a sudden
and uncontrollable desire to laugh.
The deacon did not know what to
make of it. I Ic had often passed it
around before, but no such effects had
he witnessed. The deacon w:as fairly
puzzled. The secret, however, leaked
out. He had been afllicted a day or
two with a sore on his nasal append
age, and had placed a small piece of
sticking plaster over it. During the
morning of the day in question, the
plaster had dropped off, and the deacon
seeing it, as he supposed, on the floor,
picked it up and stuck it on again.
But alas for men w ho sometimes make
great mistakes, he picked instead one
of the pieces of paper which the man
ufacturers of spool cotton paste on the
head of every spool, and whieh read,
"Warranted' to hold out 200 yds."
Such a sign on such a nose was enough
to upset the gravity of any congrega
tion. HAilDWAHE ami.
