Among old f.irniL-M, iihwcU nn nil otli. oll jtcoplc, tlioro is a feeling oflii-itig too olil to leurn. Some olijcct to rt-iuling papors ntul books on improved modes of Agriculture; thry refuso to try experi ments in new things or old, because for sooth they are two old to leant ; tlioy givu no thought to tho lieht light of tho age, to iniprovenicnts in crops, stock, im plements, Loeauso they fancy tliry aro too old to learn; they seem to tliinli it is a task to Uain after one has seen the sun of lifu at its zenith. Xow all this sea-saw aliout lieiug too old to learn is utero twaddle. AYhilo tho lamp holds out to burn one should always strive to learn. Learning should hu the business of life, and nowhere more so than among farmers. Some old men have had right views of li ing and learning. Socrates, when very old, learned to play ou Jultfl cul instruments; Calo, at. eighty, learned the Greek language; Plutarch, when nearly eighty, commenced the btttdy of Latin; lioccaceio, nt .thirty-live, com menced the study of pohto literature; Sir Henry Spelmnn commenced the stu dy of tho sciences when nearly sixty; Ludovieo, at lb"), wrote tho memories of his own time; Ogilby, tho translator of Homer Riid Virgil, was unactpiitititcd v ith Latin and Greek till ho was past fifty; Franklin did not commenco his philosophical pursuits until he was about fifty; Acccrso, tin eminent lawyer, being asked why ho began the study of law so late, answered that indeed ho began it late, but therefore hu should master it sooner; Dryden, at nearly seventy com menced the tritUblalion of thellird, and his most pleasing productions were writ ten m his old iige; Milton wrote his grandest work when tpiite old, and our own Honton iii'tpiiretl his literary fume after spending thirty Jeari in Congress, and just tin tho eve uf his election to the gie.it Congress above. jiii.Uny is full of such instances, and yoi, tl.u impression evi n where prevails that what is learned must bo learned when wo aro young. This is n mistake; live and learn should be the motto of ev ery ono, and mo; t especially so iu Ibis learning ago. l'lithers and mothers should set examples of learning to their childrcu. YYo write now especially fo1' farmers; they have need to live and learn, and in order to loarn while, they live, they should secure and read the best papers and books on their profession Agriculture is becoming a science as well as un art; it is knowledge na well as 1. bor; it requires mind as well us muscle, to prosecute it. The farmer in times to come ia to be the genius uf intelligent la bor, by which the Ileitis are to wave their golden harve. t, and human lifu be adorn ed and huiMi'cd. K,. TIk JiilSy IIi;sl)ani. Three Jolly husband by the name of Tim Wutsoii, Joe Drown, and Dill Valk. or, ait lato ono evening drinking at the village tavern, un1 il being pretty well concerned, they agreed that eaeheone on returning would do the first thing bis wil'o told him, iu default of which, should next morning pay the bill. They then separated for tho night en gaging to meet tho next morning and give an honest account of themselves, and their proceedings at homo, so far as they related to their bill. 'The next morning "Walker nnd Drown woro early at their posts, but it was suiuo timebefore AVatson made bis appearance. Yalker began tirst: "You see I entered tlio house, tho can dlo was out, and the tiro giving but a glimmering light I tamo near walking into a pot of batter that the pancakes were to bo made of in tho morning, jly wife who was dreadfully out of humor at sitting up so late, said to me sarcasti cally: "Bill do put your foot ill tho bat tel." "Jjst as you say Maggie," said I. nnd without the slightest hesitation I put my foot i.i tliu pot of batter aud went to bed." Xext Joe Drown told bis story. ".My wife had retired to our sleeping room, which adjoins the usual kitch- en, and the door was ajar: not being ablo to navigate perfectly, I mado a dreadful clatter among tho household furniture, and my wife, iu no very pleas ant tone bawled out: "Do break the porridge pot." "No sooner thau done. I seized bold of the tail of the pot, and striking it against tho chimney jam broko it iuto a thousand pieces. After this expliot I re tired to rest, and got n curtain lecture all night for my pains." It was Tim VVatson's turn to give an account of himself, which waa as follows: "My wifcgr.vo me tho moiit unlucky command iu tho world; for I was blun dering up stairs in the dark, when bhe called out: "Do broak your neck, Tim." "I'll be cussed if I do, Kate," said I as I picked myself up, "I will sooner pay the bill; and so, landlord, here's the cash for you, and this is the last time I will risk five dollars on the command of my wife." The weather prophets predict ft cold winter, bocauso the corn busks are so thick, nnd nn old bachelor predicts nu merous weddings, because there ore so many cabbago heads. TWA nnim OUlt LIlIKItXIli:?

Perliapa it in u foreboding of evil. ,('oming events cntt thuir shadows before,' thia may be one of the shadows." "Xonscnsc, Constance ! Xcver give way to superstitious deliisioiirt.

You are about to take a man with u 1 1 his failings remember that, Const mice i lie tunny, you can form no iilcn, because it is just ua true ns you live that a couple may court a hundred years, and yet not become acquainted with tho defects in the secret springs that keep the atrange machinery moving.

AJl.hi never d.ivt you cry und pout because I thought you had silk d reuses enough with out the la t expensivo one you hud set your heart upon buying.

"I think you love one another very fondly, iny child, and lnvo, which ia boundless thurify, covers a multitude of Bitis.'1 A few d.iya prnvions to the wedding day "Aunt lietsy" hud arrived und assisted at tho making of the cake, and while aim was busy iu the production of the most important piece of confectionery which is offered to the wedding guests ou the eventful breakfast, she observed to her si.ter, Mrs. Pierrepont "I have always heard it said that if the bride wished for good luck during married life, she. would hilp to stir her own cuke." "Well, 1 don't know what under the sun ia tho mutter with Constance," replied Mrs. Pierrepont; "hut I eau't persuade her to do anything," "Xow, tlmt's very strange, and not nt all like Constiiiicn," responded Aunt li-.-t- sy J5etween vou and uie, I don't bko the wuv she nioi.eM.

"I'll whip tho eggs as light as a froth, while you keep ut that until it is just tho consistency of creum," she cou tiu ir.'d. Constance gnvo the materials a few very unseieutitiu turns; und then, without n word, pushed the pan on one side, und hastily left the room. "Xow what do you mnke of such con. duct ns that?" inquired her mother, in evident distress. "Lord a massy, I don't know; but it don't moan any good, unyhnw." "I think it's the going away from home that tr n uliles tonstaiicu. 1 fancy that she would La lively enough if it wasn't for tlmt idea," returned Mrs. Pierrepont, whipping the newly-laid' eggs until she had formed hngo pyramids of snow foam, und Auntv stirred away ut the cake brisk ly, cxerci.iing her tongue in a similar man ner ; and Ly aud by it was ready for the big oven. The day of the wedding arrived bright, crisp, nnd clear one uf those glorious until nm days just before the leu vex, so beautifully colored, commence to fall. The evening preceding, Adam aud Con stance had spent together, and both were under a cloud. Ibi had a nervous head ache, und consequent ly was not talkative ; and she, with his bead in her hip, prea iug both little hands against tho aching tem ples, allowed many a silent tear to full. "Don t be worried ulout this stupid pain iu my head, darling," said Adain.no ticing her distress. "I shall sleep it oil," and Constance bade her lover good night for tho last time to morrow the husband, and for the tirst time, in her lite she left him sebbing. Ah, that was a lovely picture the bri dal toilet was faultless, but Constance's roses had all paled. The lust exqusite touch had been given to the orange-blossoms and veil, nnd Adam was culled to suluto Miss Constance for the last time. He, too, was pale as death, and wulked forward very slowly and with apparent difficulty. Constance, with her head bow ed, gavo hi m both of her little white-kidded bands to press. For a motueut they stood quietly, then, in a tone so strango, so deep, so unearth ly ns to c.iuio till present to gaze nt him with astonishment, as he caught her in his arms, pressing her tightly to his heart, Adam said "Kiss me, darling quickly ; I am dy ing," and sank iuto a c.huir. A moment more, nnd the loving heart ceased to palpitate, aud the dreadful truth overwhelmed the uuxious friuuds Adam Gray waa doad, There he lay, with a smile on his beau tiful features, drefsed in his bridal clothes uwniting now only the last sad funeral rites. What a change ! Nothing could induce Coiistntico to leave the room. She would not listen to entreaty ur command. The shades of night came on sguiu ; still Constance kept her watch. Aunt lictsy was sent to reason with her. Constance always liked her aunt. "Come away, Constance, darling, and go to bed," she exclaimed, tearfully. "I will remain here allnight, if you wish me. You are making yourself ery ill." "I shall remain 1" That wu all. ShSX OUlt HIOHTH -VK "WILL MAINTAIN. "Weil no alialt I," aaid poor Aunty, alarmed lest the intellect of Constance waa permanently injured. "Aunty," suddenly cried Constance, with a strange excitement, "po down stairs into the store closet and briiiguicu bottle of brandy." "Shall t five you some, Cuiiaance V the aid, on returning. "'f, make it part water. Quick,quiek, Aunty. Xow eive iur a nnpkio. ." Aunty, horriliod, watched her making prepnrationa to feed poor lifeless Adam. "(rood heavens!

"Aunty, Aunty," shrieked Conatance, wildly, "nth hia hands ami feet wi'h j eotnetliing hot, instantly ! Don't you see .1.-1 "ilvn prcacrv. us, yea!" leplied .Aiiiity, tremblitig with terror.

And Aunty run to rail some one, ns alio ?uw Constance attempt to change bis posi tion. "Constance, for Heaven's ak, what is this Aunty is telling mel You must have gone stark mad ! Puor child !" cried Mr. Pierrepont, bursting into the room, with tears streaming down his face. "Will you come here, father, and see for yourself 1 There is a cold perspiration on my darling's face. Give me the brat day, quick, Aunty !" Aunty passed it mechanically. "(jo for the doctor sotnebody.run quick ly! I tell you he ia alive ! Adam, Adutn, Adam ! Open your eyas, darling !" To the utter astonishment of her father, and the cousterualiou of poor trembling Aunty, and to that of Mrs. Pierrepont, who had now appeared on the scene, Adutn slowly liftod up his eyelids, smiled faint ly, und hy the time the doctor arrived, the pulse, although feeble, was quite regular, and lifa and consciousness hud entirely returned. The next day the wedding came off, but in an entirely unexpected manner. Con atnuce, rudiunt with sweet content, and this time with a healthy color on cheek nnd lip, stood by tho side of the couch, and in thu presence of u few friends, vow ed to love, lionor und cheerish him in sickness und hcallh, until death did them part.

Josh L'i!higs oii;.liI(, I want to say something. I want to say something iu reference to milk nz a fertilizer. There are various kinds ov milk sweot milk, sour milk, skim milk, butter milk, cow milk, nnd the milk of human kindlier,; but tho mostest best milk iz the milk that haz'nt the most water in it iJiittertuilk izzent the best milk for but ter. Milk iz spontaneous, nnd Jm done more to encourage growth of Luman folks than anv ntliop litwi.l Milk iz lacteal; it is also nquatic.vvliile under I'm patronage of milk venders. :,IUk iz mysterious. Cokeniut Las never boon solved yet. Milk is aUo another name for liumau kindness. Sometimes if milk is allowed to stand too long, a scum rises to tho surface, which is apt to share folks that live iu cities, but it duzzont follow that tho milk iz nnsfy; this scum iz called kremc by fokes who inhabit tho country. Kremo iz tho parent of butter, and butter is 70 cents a pound. Tho nioMt common milk in nse, with out any doubt, iz skim milk. Skim milk iz made by skimming the milk which iz considered sharp practiss. Milk is obtained fron cows, bogs.wood chux, rats, squirrels and other animals that have hair. I forgot to state, in conclusion, that cow milk, if well watered, brings ten cents per quart. Customs Worthy of Imitation. In Gormany, the children all mike it a rule to prepare Christmas presents for their parents, and brothers and sisters. Even the youngest contrive to oiler some thing. For weeks beforo tho important day arrives, they are as busy as little bees, contriving aud making sue'u things as they suppose will be most njreeablu. The great object is to keep each oue ignorant of tho present be or sho is to receive, iu order to Hiirpri.su them when tho offering is presented. A great doal of whispering and innocent management is resorted to, to effect this purpose; aud their little minds are brimful of the hap py business. Thia is a most interesting and affec tionate custom. We wish nil little girls would exercise their ingenuity iu mak ing boxes, baskets, neodlebooks, &c, for tho same purpose, every yenr. Their hoarts will be warmed with good feelings, while thoir fingers are acquiring skill; and ihey will find, as the Diblo tells them, "tliat it is moro blessed to give than to receive." Neul Brown diod ut Raleigh, N. C.tbe other day, nnd a local pnpor thus sums up bis history: "When Andy Johnson left this city, a poor tailor boy at old Mr. Liehford's shop, Xenl Drown went out with him for two or three miles, and carried on his back, wrapped rip in an old piece f carpet, all the worldly goods that the poor tailor boy then possessed. They shook hands under an old tree three miles from here, and separated. Andy became Governor, Senator, and President Neal lived quietly and work ed hard.

A chap from the country lately visit ing Dehnonico's came to the word hali but iu the list on his bill ol faro, and thought he would try some, "llaveyou any halibut," said ho. "Yes, sir." "Then bring mo a couple." Doctor's wife "Why do you not send for my husband, dear, if you feel un well?" Disgustingly-forward child "O, pa, snys it's generally easier to get rid of the disease than of the doctor, if you once got him in tho houie." An old farmer said to his sons: "B;yR, don't you ever speekerlate, or wait for aumniut to turn up. You might just na well go nnd set down ou a stone in tho middle of a meddler, with a pail twixt your legs, and wait fur a cow to back up to you to be milked. A foolish old bachelor says, "Young men, keep clear of calico, if you want to do anything great. Calico is a batiefiq institution. A pair pf sweet lips, a slim waist, nnd the pressure of a delicate band, will do as mneh to unhinge a man as the measles and tho doctor's bill to boot." , Little girl, (inquiringly) Mamma, who aro you milking all those nice little clothes for?" M.unma (feeling) "I am making them for a poor littto baby, who hasn't a rag to it's name" Little girl (sympathetically) "Mumma, was it burnt out in Chicago." An orator, in a husky voice, said: In short, ladies nnd gentlemen, I can ouly wish I had n window in my bosom, that you might see the emotions of my heart." The newspapers nil printed the speech, leaving the "u" out of window," Ho was taken somewhat aback when he rend it. Au Irishman fell from tho third story of ft building in course of erection. A friend ran to him expecting to find lifo extinct, but instead the tough celt raised up scratching his Load aud rubbing his shoulders; his friond asked, "did the fall hurt yu ?" when Tax replied, "no, ye blasted fool, t'waa tho stopping so quick." A lady, well known in Washington as a lobyist, always accosts a stranger with, "I think I have seen you somewhere," which often leads to a clow for her find ing out the history of the party. One evening she played off her usual game ou a gentleman that understood her char acter, and who replied, "Most likely, madam, for I sometimes go there." An editor dowu euat thus speaks of a contemporary: "He is too lazy to earn a meal and too moan to enjoy ono. He was never geuerous but once, nnd that was when ho gavo t'.io itch to his ap prentice. So much f ir tho goodness of his heart. Of his industry, tiie public may the better judgo when we statu that tho only day he ever worked was the day ho mistook castor-oil for honey." A Lamed clergymen was accosted in the following manner by an illiterate preacher who despisad education: "Sir, you have been to college, I suppose ?'' ''Yes sir," was the reply. "I am thank ful," rejoined the former, "that tho Lord opened my mouth without any learning.'' "A similar event," retorted the clergy man, "took place at isaluam s time; but such things are of rare occurence ut tho present day. "I know what your beau's pretty white horse's namo is," said a little Greenfield boy to his sister, Monday morning, "it's Daisye." "Hush, Eddie, that's a naughty word." "Well, I don't care if 'tis; that's his name, 'cos, last night I was standing outside of the fence and heard him say "Whoa, Daroye." A revorend goutlomnn was addressing a Sabbath-school concert at Boston Highlands ono Sunday night, and was trying to enforce the doctrine that the hearts of the liitlo ouei were sinful, and needed to be given to Christ. Taking out his watch, and holding it np, he said: "Now, here ia my watch, suppose it don't keep good time; now goes too fast, and now too slow; what Bhall I do with it ?" "Sell it 1" shouted out u flax-cn-hcaded youngster. SBjo m 9. X87I. Hight Jcruggs. FALL AND WINTER STOCK We ave received and want to sell Complete Stock of Meri.hnndise, nt privas to suit the times.
