THE ENTERPRISE- Sweetwater, Thursday, Feb. S, IS: on a Grain Farm. The idea provnils with a mnjoiity of furmers, that whilo cropping with grain is an exhaustive procoss to the lnud, cropping with grnssj adds to its fertility, I'erhnps tho most common rotation is a fivo years courso, beginning with corn, and followed by spring grain, wintur wheat, and then two years of clover and grabs. It is commonly supposed that tho J:uid rucupcrutoH under thu grass and gr.-.iu fertility to prodtieo crops of grain. This visv is corroct, doubtless, if the ;ras crops aro used solely to enrich tho soil, but when they nro mostly removed either by pasturing, or as hay, we can sou no reason why tho soil should not thereby loso elements of plant food, not to the samo estcnt, probably, as in tho growth of grain crops. Tho successful uso of clover or grass us n fertiliug crop, on agr.tin farm, must lio c jiilined t- two methods; it cither must bo till left on the ground to shudi! mid protect it fium the summer heat, and bo turned under to add to tho soil tho clcincuU absorbed from the atmosphero, or removed in the form of bay, fed to stock in conjunction with tho conrso grains of tlio farm and straw, and the manure it thus makes depeneded upon to keep up fertility. If tlio grain farmer adopts the first methcrd, one year is suf ficient for the land to bo under clover, and if lie makes hay, feeds stock and produces largo quantities of man nro, tho same time is likewise enough to com ple.to his rotation. And this, we believe, is tlio beat course for tho grnin farmer, l'aituro is tho least pralitaUo uso to which he can put his grass and clover. He should feed n grer.t deal ef stoel; in tho winter, and posture as little its pos sible; in the summer. His teams sliouM be stabled and soiled, and Lis cows have a pcrmaiiont pasture, so that tlio clover tield need not bo trodden by a binlo hoof. Tho grain farmer of limited means can practico tho system of using tho clover directly as a fertilizer for his soil, with out at first passing it through stock, and with good grain land as a basis, nud by thorough cttlturo so as to develop its strength, ho will raisofair crops for some years, but ho should not rest content until Lis round of operations includes tin making of tlio clover into hay, and feeding it with the straw, corn-stalks and coarso grains to fattening stock during tho winter. A u tt'S. Tho burden of the farmer Too much land. A farmer's life goes often, against tho grain. Thure must bo instructive neatness in a housewife, or thoru will be dirt in tho earners. Tlio day is coming when, tho farmer will bo tho educated man. The warfare of the farmer must bo eternal against tho weeds. Nothing is so extremely ridiculous as to soo a man go into his bed, all nicely preparod, and deliberately cast foul seed into it. (How many of us can plead in nocence hero ?) Tho farmer is constantly surrounded by a miracle ot Ins own "raising con verting foul manure into grain. The farmer's land has area; but his ownership also extends downward down to tho fires; in tho centre of the globe meet all our deeds. l'Ci'tliiig Straw. Straw, if properly niumiged, can be made to serve a more profitable purpose mere littering, or to add bulk to tho ma nure pile. In England, and amongst tho English farmers m Canada, most of tho bullocks are fed aud fattened on straw, with roots and meal. No hay i3 used,that being kept for tho horses. Thus a largo number of stock can bo fed. Straw cut, wetted, and sprinkled with ground feed or oil-meal, will curry cattlu through tho winter. Oat, barley, rye, and wheat straw are proportionately valuable iu the order in which they aro placed. Pea straw is moro valuable than oat Htraw. -- How to Get Hid of the Woolly Tasto in Mutton. Mr. Collins, of Michigan, writes that ho has a way of drossing mutton which makes it sweet and palatable, and entirely desti tute of woolly tasto. "As soon aspossihlo after tho sheep is dead, skin tbo logs and hang up. Then make and opening in front, as high up as possible, aud turn io, with a cup or dipper, as much cold water as the carcass will hold usually from ono to one and a half pailfulls. Then go on and skin and dress as usual." Wo do not see tho philosophy of tho plan, but it is simplo and easy, and is worth trying. Tho meth od we try to adopt is, to make the sheep fpiito fat before killing. Wo kavo novcr known it to fail. There are some sheep which it is almost impossible to fatten. Ou Aueh wo would try the water-cure. Advertising. The paper is to the poople what a sign hoard is t) the traveler.

SWEETWATER, TEirAr., THURSDAY, PER. 8, 1872. Ghosts. The following incidents of supornat- ural oceurenco aro m far within my own j personal knowlcd-o as it is possible, to bo, without being the actual object of tho extraordinary interferences narrated. Thero was residing, somo years ngo, at an insignificant town in tlio Northern Counties, a widow lady who occupied a small housa alono with her young chil dren. Tlio oven calmness and self -possession of her dij)oition,tho absence in her of everything approaching nervous ness or hysteric, aud her cxtremo good senso, would entirely uisipato any sus picion of weakness or unusual suscepti bility of mind, or of hrr possessing ten dencies befitting Lcr, according to pop ular notions, to bo tho subject nf any spirittmd or supernatural revelation. Sho was sleeping, or rather dozing iu ft. half-uni'oiiseious state, in Led, with one of her children, at iiu;ht, when she felt her reason overpowered by an overmas tering influence, its though oho were seized with a tit. Immediately there was presented to her mind a vuion of tsrriblu di.'tinetncRR. Sho saw three men struggling ilespen.ti ly in the wate:' of somo deep and rapid t-treaia, nnd in all tho agonies of tho ki t gasp of life. Tho vision was but momentary, but uuf-1 lieient for her to observe distinctly and with minutoness the despttringly distor ted features oeaeh in a manner so vivid and impressive that thy were never if faecd in all their clearness from her memory. On returning to conscious ness, the feeling of reality created w as t:n exciting that i.ho was unable to ob tain any further rcs.t; but dressing her self, spent the remainder of tho night in passing about the liir.tso, in great per. turbatioii of mind, in tho endeavor to rcc'vcr from the i-rrifying ciTectn of her vi' ion. 'When daylight L gnu to dawn, i.'.i ) opened tlio shttltt is oi'a loverrooni looking on to the town street, and be fore closing tho window she observed a person, whom she recognized, running hastily down tho street. Ho told her that just thou tlio bodies of three drowned n: :i wero being taken out of tho river adjoining the town. Dceii'v aflectod with the coincidence, she sought mid obtained tin opportunity of viewing tho corpses during the day. They were those of throe strangers to tho vicinity, who, engaged in Bjme poaching venture in tho neighborhood, and being pursued, had plunged into tho river, which, small in other places, wan there deep, rapid and uufordublu, nud hud to met with their death. In tlie:u hho rr cogni;:cd at once tlio very laces that, li.-vl Uc'i so pUiidy represented to her mind iu her vision of the night previous. In anotlu rense, tv l.iarri 'd lady, resid ing in a remote country district in Lin colnshire, had bof .tow ed her charity, nnd taken a deep interest iu a poor mid friendless stranger-wonmn, who, advanc ed in years, had seen better days, nud who, struggling with starvation, persis tently refusecl to apply for, or receive, parish assistance. Her great fear a droad which Haunted her perpetually was that after death she would be sub mitted to the indignity of a pauper's burial. On thin theme she continually dwelt to her benefactor, and she extrac ted from her a solemn promise that af ter death fihe would secure for her a de cent and rcspectabii) interment. The hnpo of obtaining a little present aid for her necessities led her a short distance away from her friend for some length of time. During this period, in the middle of ono night, whilst tho lady w as passing from her own chamber to her children's nursery, she suddenly Raw on the lauding between tho two rooms, with great distinctness, what bIio toed, to be the form of her old dependent, who had for some time oscaped her memory, regarding her with a look of most anx ious siipplication. Tho reader will, of conrso, guess tho sequel of tho story, which is, however, a veritable fact. AVhc n the lady with her husband on tho follow day, deeply impressed with this circum stance, sought out tho little hut in which tho poor woman had been resident since her removal, they found the parish assis tants preparing her corpse for its funer al, and tlio promise so singularly exac tod thus strangely obtained its fulfill ment. There lived somo years ngo in one of tho largo towns in tho north, a lad, who, in bis later years, was well known by- many now living. Beginning life as an errand boy in an oftico of lavgo business, his merit soon became apparent and was acknowledged; and in the samo office ho eventually became a partner of tho firm he had served, nis only parent from infancy was his mother, left in wretched circumstances iu life, but toiling for loving with nn engrossing intensity of devotion, nnd wholly wrapped in the fortunes of hor only son. His base in difference and disregard of hor did not chock, but seemed to heighten her af fection. In her son's prosperity, nnd her ago, nnd the great injrmity induc ed by her privations, she was tho inninto of a public almshouse. But here her solo thought and conversation was of the son. Having nt last became bedridden, she was visited by the vicar of the parish ono day, at a timo after sho had been supposed to bo unconscious. Ho en terud into convert ation with Ler, and with a flood of tears but tears of resi gnation sho told him that hor boy was dead, that she had seen it all that sho had seen his body drawn out of the sea that very afternoon, quite dead; and sho continued rationally relating several in- ciih uts of tho scene wlreh she had ntt;i- had witnessed. The minister soothingly conversed with her, Lot left c- t tho apparent I'.crai'i-ement which poiises-cd her. Iu the morning of tho following day, however, he was astonished at a visit from friends of the poor sufferer, who wished hint to break to her tho dreadful tiding.! of her son's death. He had been drowned on the afternoon of tho previous day, whi! .t bathing nt a watering place not far dis tant; and on inquiry, many of tho cir cumstances referred to by tho widow in her conversation on the subject were found to have actually taken place, at tho time of the recovery of the corpse. A Country Jkiden's Appeal. Sho Asls Alexis for $()0 with V i Which to I'lejr Her Lover. Ye eppeiid one of tho most chaciter istic effusions, begging to assure our readers that tho document is genuine. It i.-t writti n in a delicate feminine hand, and is eidciitly from tlio pen of a young lady who has moro culture than discre tion: "To tl.o Grand Duko Alexis: "Yot It IlIl'ST lIoNoItAW.E 3I..J!:..TY I am awaro that you must bo wearied with letters of various kinds, but still I hi.ye hope that you will listen to the story of a country maiden, one who is in trou ble, ami has presumed upon your kind ness by asking help. 3Iy story is this: Thero canio to mo ' n year ngo a broken hearted man. He bail lost, the year be fore, his lovely aud amiable wife, and with her had peiishod overy aim in life, every hope, nnd every ilrsiro for any thing that earth could afford. I brcame acquainted with him, and it became my privilege to cheer his broken heart, n:ul n l.i'Vo it of its hc-.vy burden of borrow iu a measure), to that earth seininl brighter and his life again presented some attractions. In short, ho came to love me, and I too, love him, as perli.'ps not many have loved. Y'o want to marry; ho wants a homo again, but misfortune has made it impossible. His father is n man of moderate means in the middle class of wi.-teiy (a:) peoplo are classed in this country), living iu Hamilton coun ty, in New York State, and therefore is linablo to help him. His relatives nro honorable, being ranked among mis sionaries, physicians, etc. Ho is a man about ;!' yo.tvs of ago, honorable and in telligent, and possessed of tho highest Christian principle. YVhen his wife died Lo had just purchased a small farm, mid had just begun to pay for it. But his homo wan broken up, and he sold it with much loss, thus leaving him in debt. Ho is now owing about i'.'JOO. tic is a carpenter by trade, and the most he can pay yearly is $lot), thus making it a long time before he can bo free to Mip port a wife, lie is keeping up an iu surance on his life, so that if he nhould dio his creditors could have their pay. He is honest, iu these times of dishones ty and fraud, and will pay the last cent tia owes, and, after that, wo must wait to lay by something before wo can bo mar ried. "Now, if your JJajesty has ever loved, you must know how hiu-d it must be to wait so long. He is getting discouraged, aud, although I am willing Io wail, ho is beginning to thick it not best to wait so long, and thinks he w ill try ami live as ho is, and not love nny one, rath r than keep mo wailing so long. You must bo wealthy, and what ho would think a great help, you would think was nothing in your royid grandeur, lie does not know I am doing this; ho would not let me. But if I could only surprise him; that is, if I could send him some thing, and not let him know where it eamo from for a while, nnd thus save my lover, how happy I should bo. I have cast about me a long time to think what I could do to help him, and this is tho last resort. My health is not good or I could do something to earn money. This is a simple, true story, and if Your Royal Highness could do suine thiug to help us, or could raise some thing among your wealthy friends, in LyfO.way of money, I asoiiro you it would bo most gratefully received, and in after years, when you shall have followed your illustrious father to the throne of Russia, your namo will bo held in veneration by- two American hearts at least. If this is not beneath your notice, if you or your friends could help U3 iu tho way of money to cancel any of juy lover's debts, would it be sent by a draft ou bomo Eastern bank, to tho order of N.
