A Paris correspondent writes that ex cellent accounts of all crops have been received from the provinces. Tlic farmers of tho central provinces, the great wheat growing region, count on a good average crop, and as far as opinions can yet be formed, this year's vintage will be one of the best for fifteen years.

Iloskins has explained more fully, in tho Maino Fanner, tho origin of tho manure mines of Vermont to which reference was recently mado. It appears that all tho urino of tho animals was allowed to soak through tho floor into tho ground undornoatU and, tho liquid boiug rich in both nitro gen nnd potash, tho conditions woro to somo extent favorablo for tho forma tion of nitrates from a paitof tho ni trogen, while another portion romnins in tho form of salts of nmmonia. With snch wasteful management of this most valuable part of tho manuro It is no wonder that rich mines wero found nftor an accumulation of twontv years. Tn, .J5rouni1. bouB covered by tho building, and protocted from the rain, no other water than tho urlno itself could leach through It elso tho rich ness would not have remained thorn Nitratos are quietly carried off by per co'ating water, tho drainage waters of well manured ilelds nre much richer in nltratos than those of poor and unman urcd soils. Tho presonco of considera ble nhosnhorla acid was also nnlnil nml Dr. Iloskins is inclined to doubt the statement of tho books that this sub-, stance is not to bo found in tho urino of cattlo. It was not, howovor. puro urino that passed through the floor to tho ground, but urlno which had been in contact with the solid excrements, from which it could not but extract more or less phos phate Moreover, it is true, as the doc tor believes, although ho has found no other reason for his faith than the re sults of his own investigations, that in tho caso of well-fed animals, whoso ra tion contains much grain or oil-cako, somo phosphate isoxoretcdln thourino; and tho urino of animals fed no milk is rich in phosphates. There is nothing unreasonable, theroforo, in tho occur renco of these manure mines; but wo do not think that any good Vermont iiirmor win regard it as pru ueni management to store up for years a part of his plant food in tho ground In this manner; and tho discov ery of theso accumulations of fertility a toffotber too X V A J?8!0"! thero. of tho importance of the use of It costs little troublo to save tho solid part of tho oxeromonts, and still less to lose tho liquid part.

The President has been sleeping quietly the most of the evening, and Ills fever has considerably dccreacd since the date of tho last official bulletin. His symp toms nt this hour arc all favorable. When he was last awake he asked Dr. Hev bum what the news was. The Doctor replied that tho Gov ernors of several States had hi view to Issue, when he, tho President, should be out of danger, n proclamation appointing a general day of thanksgiving to God for the answered prayers of the Nation. The President seemed touched and gratified. In a conversation with the Pres ident, Coloucl Rockwell made the remark that the heart of the Nation was in his room. Tlie words seemed to make an Impression upon him, and to-night, while Col. Hoekwell was sitting by his bed side, he murmured unconsciously in his sleep: "The heart of the Nation will not let the old soldier die!" WASTKD ClllAIt Til's.

Ill the rnnniifnetnro of cignrs there is littlo or no waste of material, Tlio stems and ribs of the tobacco leaves that nro rejected by the cigarmtikur nro sold to farmers as mnniii-u. Tliu odd scraps or cuttings go toTIlo cfgaretto manufac turer or are sent to Kiiropolobesmokcd in pipes. Even tliu dust Hint is swept from tliu lloor of tliu workroom where cigars nro miulo Iuh its price, and is used ns an inseci;dcstioyerinliot houses nnd gardens. Tobaeeo Is too valuable to bu wasted by I lie manufacturer. It is aftei' the cigar gets to tho consumer that tlio waste begins. It is probably safe to say that on an average one tliird of nil the tobacco mado into cigars is Hung away in the sliapo of half con sinned stumps, and the smokers of the best cigars throw away the biggest stumps. This waste is especially com mon in this country, where cigar hold e rs are less used than in Europe. Along Hroadway or tlio Howery may bu seen every morning scores of bootblacks and Italian ragpickers gathering from tlio gutters a harvest of cigar stumps for their prlvato use. though of Into years this enterprise has- fallen almost entirely into tho hands of tliu Italians, owing to tho as cendency of tho cheap enrnrctto nnd tho growing self-esteem of tho Now York gnmin. Tho fact familiar to ev ery smoker, thnt a cigar -onco lighted and laid nwny, if only a fow whill's of smoke have been drawn through it, en tirely loses its flavor, intoiferes with tho value of the stump. Hut tho Italian rng pinker is not over fastidious, and in I li black clay pipe nil tobacco tastes all. o- In Paris, tho gathering of cigar stumps has grown to bo a recognized industry. In tho Place Marabcrt there is it market for this commodity. Whole sale dealers purchase tho stumps that are gathered in lariro lots of bovs and beggars, nnd turn them into a poor quality oi ty of smoking tobacco that is pur 3d by the poorer classes or ex- chased norted Tho tip of "head" of tho cigai, which by the American smoker is bitten off and tossed away, is in somo parts of Europe carefully preserved aud mado tho basis of vast, organized charity, Tho history of its use, which only dates back somo fifteen or twenty year,s, is a fair illustration of tho results thnt may bo accomplished by economy in small things. Some German philosopher of a pructicnl turn, calculated thnt mucn valuable tobacco was wastetl by cigar smokers by tho rejection of tho tip and if a general collection of tho tips could bo made and tho material could bo put to use a handsomo revonuo would bo tho result. Tho conceit was laughed nt but was put to tho test half seriously by n number of smokers. For wnut of an organized effort tho first results wcro not encouraging, but tlio thing was talked of, anu croatcd attention. Smokers' clubs wero organized in ail parts of Germany so-called "spltzol voriono" (tip societies) nnd n regular system of collections was dovised. Tho members of tlio clubs mado it their business to collect cigar-tips among their friends, nnd boxes wero put into tobacco stores and snloons for the samo purposo. Every month a member of tho club mado his collections. As charity was understood to bo tho object oi ino collections, sums oi monoy wero found in tho nubile boxes amontr tho tintl.

Master Westloy, clerk and sexton In the small village of Woodham, wns ono winter's morning sitting by his cheery iircsiiio wniciung nitcrnntciy tno ram, fiercely bcatintr ngninst tho latticed window-panes, nnd tliu brisk movements of his active littlo daughter, as sho mov ed to and fro, busy nbout her household work. Presently sho camo In, bringing n hat, greatcoat, nnd iimbrclln, observ ing, "1 ou will bo wanting theso soon, fail ter. It Is nearly cloven o'clock." She had hardly said this, when a loud knocking wns heard nt tho outer door, loi lowed by the nbrupt cntrnnco of little, middle-aged man, in a stnto of great excitement, his faco red, his hair rumpled, Ills boots splashed with mud, anu ins coat dripping witu wot. "Why, Simon, what on enrth's tho matter?" snld tho clerk. "You don't look much liko a bridegroom." "Bridegroom t No I" tho littlo man cx claimed with bitter emphasis. "Master Wcstley, you'll havo to toll tho parson i can't get married to-day." "Why, how is that?" asked tho clerk, "1 can't get Man up," quoth tho in dignnnt nnd disappointed lover. "I've been rnttlln1 nt her door, and throwin stones nt tho winder, and shoutin' till I'm hoarso ns a rock; nnd I'm nearly wet inrougu wun tno drippings irom liuscns (tho eaves of tho house); but I can't get she up. Sho only jest put her ncndotnoi the winder lorn minute, to tell mo 'twer no good for mo to stand knoekctting (making n great noise) there; for she'd never take tho troublo to put on her best things, and go out in inatpowcriir rain jest to marry mo." "Why. Sim! this is rather a bad bo ginning for peopio nbout to marry, isn't it? I'm afraiil tho gray maro will bo the best horso in vour team won't she?" said tho kindly old clerk, with a merry twlnklo in his knowing brown eyes. "However. I'd better cro nnd tell Mr. Howard, or ho will bo putting his surplice on for nothlmr. Shall I sav that perhaps tho wedding may como off 10-morrow, it tno weather is liner, nnd Mary will get up in time?" "If sho don't." vowed Sim. clarinir vengefully, "sho shall never hev another chance. I'm fairly sick of her tricks. Wo'vo been keeping company tills twen ty years and more, and uow sho don't know her own mind a bit better than a mawthcr (young girl) in her teens. But I won't stand it no longer. Sho ain't going to treat mo liko a dog, or a mat for her to wipe her feet on. There's Widow Biggs would hev mo nny day, and glad; and a nico comfortable wo man sho is, too! Tho wedding ring shan't lie long in my pocket for want of a wearer. Ami there.

"Uieerup, bim!" said Master W est- ley. "It is aggravating, I'll own; but Isn't a bad sort, 111011211 she has Alary rather a cruggy (crusty) temper. She has been very true to you; and It would uo a pity ior two such faithful lovers as you have been, to part over a littlo tiff nt last. I beliovo Mary is jealous of tho littlo widow. You know thnt peopio did say onco that you wero rather sweet on her." "It was a big story," burst out Sim. "Sho tried to hook me; but I never gave no encouragement." "Didn't you walk with her from church last Sunday? I heard that you did, and carried littlo Joey nil tho way homo; and kissed him when you put htm down at his mother's door." "Well, ho asked 1110 to givohim a kiss, so I couldn't do no otherwise. Tlioro worno harm in that sewerly." "Certainly not. Only, you seo, ns Mary lives just opposite, nnd saw it all, sho very likely thought you'd bo better ongagod kissing her, Instead of hang ing round tho widow's door. Depend upon it slio's jealous; nnd sho's got a highful spirit of her own, nnd is noting liko tills to mnko you think sho docsnH caro whether sho has you or not. If sho thought there was real danger of losing you, she'd como round in a min ute as tractable as you like." "But how can I raSke her think so?"

But if sho doesn't unrry vou to-morrow. I'll eat mv 'head." "Ah, Master Westloy, you're a dcon ono, you ure!" said Simoti, regarding ins astuto adviser with admiration. "But it don't faro to bo exackcrly jon nlck (straightforward) to dow so; and I nifR foud of smarmln' bablos over with kisses. Still, if you think it'll bring Mary up to tho scratch, I'll o'on try it. If it don't, marry Sukoy I will, without any shillyshallying." master Westloy then started for tho rectory; and Sim paid his visit to tho wMow. Ho remained in hor snug littlo houso some tlmo; and must havo acted his part uncommonly woll, for ho had hardly reached homo again, when ho was visited by his old sweothcart. That eccentric spinster, ignoring her own wayward conduct that day, attacked Sim with a storm of roproaches, accus ing him of ilcklonoss and falseness in forsaking her for "that sly, carneying, littlo wldder; and nftor keeping com pany with mo for so many years!" sho plaintively added. "No," said Sim, stoutly; "twor no fault o' mine. I was ready to do my part this morning. It was you as run word. But I'll oat humblo-plo no lon gor. If you don't want to hov mo, I know ono as does. I'll marry you to morrow, if you liko. If you don't I'll novor ax you again!" Mary was rt tall, hlack-oycd, comoly looklng spinster of forty, or moro, re ported to hnvo a hot temper nndi n. shrewish tonguo; Hut for once sho kept, both In check. It wns evident that Si mon meant to bo trifled with no longer. Moreover, sho could not help secretly admitting that ho was right, nnd admir ing his spirit and manly determination. It would novor do to let so good a fellow nnd so faithful a lovor fall a prey to a. designing widow not to mention tho. humiliation she would havo to cndtirol Next morning tho rain clouds hail cloarcd off, nnd a bright sun poured Its', rays through tho old church windows upon Mr. nnd Mrs. Simon Povcrltt as they walked from tho altnr-ralls Into tlio-i vestry, to enter their names in tho parish register. Sim, with a brond grin on his face, laboriously executed a big black. X, as "his mark," informed tho rector that ho was "a sawyer by trndo," and. that his "owd gal had been of ngo this, twenty years !'nf ter which he turned to his friend tlio clerk, with n knowing; wink, nnd said in nn uudcr-tonc: "Wo did It well, between 119, didn't, we?
