FUTURE AMERICAN POETS.

In s recent conversation WmunJ
Clarence .Stedman. referring to the
older poets of America, remarked a
follows: "In the case of the two old
est survivors In song Mr. Whlttler
and Dr. Holmes we observe their ad
mirers grow more extended In num
bors with the spread of oulture In our
land. If their voices are not heard a
frequently as formerly, It is not be
cause they have grown less strong and
weet, far with each new utterance as
it comes to us from time to time we are
unable to detect any variation In the
tones wo all lung ago so easily learned
"I)well Is lei often hoard nowa
days than he used to be, but It Is not,
as we know, because of any diminu
tion In tho quality of that Tolce whose
music is so appreciated by all culti
vated peoplo everywhere. Our only
regrot Is thut we don't hoar more of It
as wo have reason to hope we may
when Klin wood Is again graced
by tho presence of Its mas
ter. Stoddard, whose work hat
never been appreciated as ll
should bo, contlnuod to be loyal to
bis first love, and from time to time,
notwithstanding advancing years and
physical infirmities, adds to the pool
lcal richness of our literature. I can
not help fooling that the outlook for
poetry in tills country Is oncouraglng,
though, and will not deny that with
tho younger and coming singers alto
gether too much stross is laid upon the
more pulnful forms of vorso. The
volumes of verse emanating from
month to month from tho younger
writers do not contain that dlstinctlvs
character of work such as belonged to
that formative period when Bryant,
Longfellow, Whlttler and Lowell, tins
the writers immediately following
them, wrought for a walling people.
Lougfollow's "Lost Youth" In Itself
was sufficient to establish the reputa
tion of any poet who oould produce
such a masterpiece. How few of our
younger writers give us any thing like
this. And yet there is no runson why
such poems can not bo written to-day
as in longfel low's early years. My
ad v loo to our coming singers Is do
'not give so much attention to tho
lighter forms of verse-making, but
seek to produce something whlob
.shall be full of real character,
and shall stand apart, as It were, from
the dainty ordor of verso referred to
These bits of verso are all protty
enough, and of course are In a given
tense promises of something hotter to
come, but that is all. Still, as 1 have
laid, there Is much enoouragnment to
believe that tho outlook for poetry In
this oountry Is bright, slnco every now
Slid then some striking instance Is af
forded as evldenco of this fact, as In
the case of Woodborry's "The North
Shore Watch," one of tho finest elegiac
poems of recent times; also in the case
uf Miller's "Songs of tho Sierras," and
several of Sidney Lanier's composi
tions, such as the "Song of the Chatta
hoochee," "Tho Revengo of Kamiih,"
and "The Marshes of Glynn." I trust
the day is near in hand when I shall be
free from the pressure of outside du
ties and cures, and ran give more at
tention to poetry than 1 have been able
to devoto to It for some time past
jWlth the completion of tho work on
C American Literature," on which I
avo boon engaged for a conslderabls
period of time, 1 shall feel that I oan
once more tuko up the work nenrest my
heart, In which service toil Is only s
refreshment and delight. N, Y. Mall

Why It Is w. n I We Can Not Look
Int.. as Other's Mm. I,
Life would not he happy If we could
look Into every body's mind and know
exactly what our neighbor was think
ing about If we oould see the spirit
as easily as we can look at Die body
we wuotd bo afraid to go along thi
street If we wow rynipathcllo It
would be a constant misery; if we wort
cold our best friends would have noth
ing to do with us; If we were vieloui
nobody would speak to us; If wor
virtuous we would mako any numbei
of enemies. 1 wonder whether, In that
robelious spiritual state, which we can
imagine us the only possible next form
of existence, we shall all be known ex
actly as we are. We must then be all
purely good, and It Is not easy to sea
bow that is to be brought about unless
death is a kind of inter and absorb all
our wickednesses. It will take an
awful lot of charcoal te take out all out
But. still, life Is for all of ui a lone
Iv kind of business. Friendship, love,
sympathy, conddenoe, trust are all
very well. Yet are there things they
can not aid or remove. We have all
some grief in which we must tread the
winepress alone. 1 suppose there
would bo even more trouble If we
started In to try to help one another
In real earnestness. I suppose ws
would make a mess of It Then an
people who want to be let alone and
people who want sympathy, and the
perversity of things Is such that you
invariably worry the fellow who wants
to be let alone with your sympathy
and let the fellow alone who Is anx
ious to be helped. ( em. people when
they are sick are angry and annoyed If
you call to see them; others never for

As plants r in their desire for foods
it is not impossible for a piece of ground
to fail in the production of certain kinds
of crops and yield largely of otl.en, owing
to the composition ol the soil and the
plant food contained therein.
Chili Sauce. Take six large ripe to

The old horse is safer and lietter for the
use of the younger members of the family
than younger ones, but for general farm
work a horse should lie young and strong.
During the summer, when the work is
very heavy, the horses should bo fed
three times a day and given two hours

Grape Wine. Secure the finest grapes
and press out all the juice. To each gal
lon add three pounds of sugar; stand in
an open vessel in the cellar to ferment,
keeping the vessel filled by adding sweet

put into a cask and bung tightly.

Fruit trees cannot thrive on all kinds

A s.nl . o staining free lime, potash or
magnesia is in condition to form rapidly
in warm weather under tilage valuable
compoundsof nitrogen, which will hasten
plant growth. This process, called uh a
laction of the soil, does not go on rapidly
iu the absence of lime, potash, soda, etc.,
hence the importance of applying lime
and potash to soils deficient in them.
Dahlias should always have stout
stakes driven close to the main stalk of
the plant to give the support needed in
case of high winds. If these stakes are
painted green they will not 13 noticeable,
and if they are taken indoors in autumn,

Good Use for House Slops. If you

afford sufficient nutriment to nourish
such plants as you grow in it during the
summer in a very satisfactory manner.

CHILDREN AND MONEY.
Some ItriiHiills Why Hoys anil lilrl Should
Have a K, n il o AllOWSUseSi
If children have no money of their
own. how can they learn to tnnnnije it?
Begin when thoy are very young, and
tench thrm gradually the use of
money, by arranging household work
so they can earn a few pennies, and
perhaps by giving moneyed rewards
for special excellence in school.
Whenever children are given money
let them understand it is beoanss the
have earned it by good behavior.
Money should not be doled out to
child as it were to a beggar. It has a
right to its allowunce; utid tho chil
dren that are early taught that they
must furnish equivalent for money re
ceived learn tho Value of money, and
grow to be respected because they are
self-respecting. The plan we have
suggested is followed in many fami
lies, und Bach child Is paid a fixed
sum for certain duties. While the
sums earned by smaller children are
trivial, the children lire compelled to
pay out certain small necessary ex
penses from them, und to contribute a
penny of the earnings to tho church
contribution-box ouch Sunday A
soon as they huvo a dollar saved they
are urged to put it in the bank, unless
it is near a birthday or the holidays,
when extraordinary expenditures are
in order. In one family, the writer
remembers, it is the Mile of the
mother to make n liberal allowance ol
paper, pencils and other sundries for
school, and if any of these nrticles are
wasted or used up before a certain
time, the child in fault is compelled to
purchase others from her own money.a
very dellnlte and usually effective way
of reaching carelessness. By gradual
ly b -coming used to spendin money,
und learning by "paying" thesuffsriBg
and folly of carelessness, the child
grows to learn values, and when she
arrives at an age suitable may use nn
allowance given her wisely and wi'D
proper discretion. Farm and Fire

The origin of Indian corn has long
been a mooted question. It is now
stated that a nutivo plant of the niaiz'
family has been discovered in Central
America which is probably the origin!
type of our corn. But instead of beaj
ing the car on a side shoot, it bears it

to the cob of corn, has but two ro
of grains. Otherwise the plnnt re
sembles corn nearly exactly. The' de
partures from this type are probably
the result of cultivation, os our corn,
wrapped in heavy husk, could not
scatter its seed, so as to pwpf
itself in u wild state. The local name
of the plant is Teosinto. Albany
