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

Three Jolly husband by the name
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
en, and the door was ajar: not
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

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

"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

Mrs. Pierrepont; "hut I eau't persuade
her to do anything,"
"Xow, tlmt's very strange, and not nt

lady passing the doorway. "Xow I want
you to cmnu in hero und stir your owu

body else mix it;" and Aunty placed in
her hands the dish containing the butter
nnd sugar. "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

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.
"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

cried, iu a time of amazement and fright.
''I can stand almost anything, hut pouting
brandy into a corpae in point; a little too
far, and I shall call your father."
"Aunty, Aunty," shrieked Conatance,
wildly, "nth hia hands ami feet wi'h

Mr. Pierrepont, bursting into the room,
with tears streaming down his face.
"Will you come here, father, and see

Aunty passed it mechanically.
"(jo for the doctor sotnebody.run quick

To the utter astonishment of her father,

Aunty, and to that of Mrs. Pierrepont,
who had now appeared on the scene, Adutn
slowly liftod up his eyelids, smiled faint

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

iJiittertuilk izzent the best milk for but
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

Milk is aUo another name for liumau
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
