Pleaae be Cheerful.
Tell us not in mournful numbers."
Life is all a ghastly dream
Such as those we have in slumbers,
Wbenthe nightmare makes us acre ana.
Life is dark enough in earnest,
Without bringing m the goal ;
Only readers of the sternest
Like their heroines out on bail.
Jfot to swindle or to borrow,
Is the repuiable way
Not to marry, and to-morrow
Kill jour bride, andjun awajQ
Arson's wrong, and poisoning dreary,
And our hearts, though pretty brave,-
Jnw and then get rather weary
Of the gallows and the grave.
In the great clomestic battle,
In the matrimonial strife.
Be not like those Mormon "cattle '."
Give your hero but one wife.
" Wives and daughters" should remind you
There are womeu without crime ;
Draw them, and you'll leavebehind vou
Fiction that may weatherime ; 3
Fictions free from that inspector
Who is sent by llichard Mayne,
And find footmarks that anect a
Solemn bugler in the lane.
Let us then have no more trials,
No more tampering with wills ;
Leave poison in the phials
And the money in the tills. Punch,
Maxims for Farmers. An old
Illinois farmer gives the following
maxims' for farmers to practice :
When you wake up, do not roll
. T. 1 1
over, but turn out. it win give you
time to ditch all your sloughs, break
them up," and" sow" them with timothy
and red clover. Ope busheof tim
othy to two of clover is enough.
Make yourcjnce high, tight -and
strong, so that it will keep cattle
(Sand pigs out. If you have brush
make your lots secure, and keep your
hogs from the cattle, for if the corn
is clean, they will eat it better than
if it?is not. 0 . .
Be sure to get your bands to bed
by sevenQ'clock, they will rise early
by force of circumstances.
Pay a hand, if he is a poor hand,
all you promise him if he is a good
hand, pay him a littlernore ; it will
encourage him to do still better.
Always fed your hands as well
ayou do yourself, for the laboring
men are the bone and sinew of the
world, and ought to be well treated.
I anfsatisfied that getting up early,
industry and regular habits are the
best medicines ever prescribed fo
When it comes rainy, bad weather,
so that you cannot work out of doors,
cut and split your. wood.
Make your bracks when it rains
hard, cleaning your stables, or fixing
, something which 9ou would have to
stop the plow for and fix in good
Make your tracks fixing your
; fences, or that ga& that is off its
hinges, or in weather-boarding your
barn where the wind has blown off
the siding, or patchiug the roof of
tout house or barn. o
Study your interestsQclosely, and
don't spend money and time electing
Presidents, Senators, and other
small officers, and don't talk of hard
times when spend injj your time in
town whittling on store boxes.
Take your time and make yonr
calculations ; don't do anything in a
Wrry, but-xlo everything at the right
time, ancrleep your mind as well as
your body employed.
Walter Scott's Advice to His
o Son. Read, my dear Charlie, read ;
and read that w hiclcis useful. MSn
difftg from birds and beasts only
because ho has the means of availing
himself ofjhe knowledge acquired by
his predecessors. The swallow builds
the sauiePnest whTch its father and
n motherbuilt, and the sparrow does
not improvao by the experience of
its parents. The son of the learned
pig, if it had one, would be a mere
brute, only fit to make bacon of.
it is not so with the human race.
Our ancestors lodged in caves and
rwigwams, where we construct palaces
tor the rich, and comtortaoie awea
ings for the poor ; and why is this
but because our eye is enabled to
look back uponAhe past, to ignprjDve
upon our ancestors' improvements,
and to avoid their errors'? ThisGcan
only be done by study ing history and
comparing it with passing eyerits.
Active Manure. The Maine Far
mer states that one of the most active
manures, and readily within the reach
of most farmers, is a mixture of leach
ed ashes, plaster and night soil mix
ed with fine soil. Let them be thor
oughly worked over on a smooth
spot, Smd allowed to stand a week
before using, working it over every
other day and you have a most val
uable manure at trifling cost of time.
A handful of this mixture in a hill
is excellent to give corn a start. Po
tatoes and garden vegetables general
ly feel it quick. Hen manure is an
excellent ingredient in such manures,
but it should be well slacked with
water before mixing with other sub
Coal Tar as Paint for Houses.
"J. T." writes from Madison, Iud.,
to the question : " Is coal tar good
paint for outsides of a small house V1
"Your answer: -'yes-if you like a
black house. I would answer, yes
for either a small or large house. A
good paint that will outlast any oil
paint, on either wood or brick, and
not be bTlack eithgr, can dc made with
coal tar." In whatever way "J. T."j
modifies the color, we presume he
cannot avoid Iiaving.it very dark,
andhis we decidedly object to for
wetting houses at least, which should
be of a light cheertul color, if of
wood, or of a natural stone color if
of brick or concrete. Club. '
Silk Culture. It is a good time,
says a California paper, to remind
farmers of the value of dividing riks
in their pursuits. Put not your trust
wholly in wheat or barley, or pota
toes, or fruit, ought to be a potent
motto with them. Give attention to
some minor crops, and to the new
products for whieh ademand is spring
ing op. Make more butter and
cheese j plant nuUbearing trees and
bushes j try a patch of oil seed, es
pecially linseed ; pat in some tobacco,
hops, cotton, etc. y and now that we
have a silk manufactory established,
plant mulberry seed and try silk cuN
ture. Silk is $ertainly to be one of
thereat products of the State, for
the favorableness of the climate over
comes all disadvantages of high labor
and competition. With some of the
minor industries a farmer can make
every month bring him a profit. But
perhaps silk offers the most flatter ng
inducements as an incidental venture.
It is a product which involves very
little labor. In Italy and the Ionian
islands it is committed to children
and females, who look upon it as their
own peculiar affair. It only Occupies
from 35 to 40 days' labor in the year
and as it is mainly carried on under
shelter it is not exposed to the climate
in the same wry that many other
kinds of cultivations are. An acre of
land planted with the mulberry in
Italy, is said to be worth, permanent
ly, at least $250 per annum a large
return, surely, on a comparatively
small outlay. Piedmont and Italy,
comprising an aiea smaller than some
of our counties, export raw silk and
cocoons to the value of more than 30
million dollars per annum, after re
taining enough for home wants. This
puts to blush ourov'n bcastedQ wealth
being, as it is, equal to three-fourths
the total gold products of Oregon,
and the balance of the Pacific coast,
and ehiefljderived from the industry
of young people and females. Be
sides the value of the. raw product,
we should have here added the value
of the manufactured article, and a
widening of the field for skilled labor.
A production which occupies so little
time, which is so easily understood,
and which can be managed by women
andcchildren, as a light pastime, need
not be excluded from any Oregon or
California farm where there are fami
lies, on the score of dearness of labor.
' Q "--
Grass Stock. A farmer, says the
Rural New' Yorker, should not de
pend on a single variety of grass alone
to stock his land. Neither clover
timothy, blue grass, red top or any
other of the grasses will yield as
largely when grown separate as w ill
different kinds mixed in the same
field. In pastures the difference in
profit is greater than in meadows, be
tween stocking with one or several
varieties. When there is variety
there is the best for each season ; one
kind starts early ; another grows
vigorously in the summer time and
withstands dry leather ; a third may
supply an abundance of late fall feed,
enduring frosts well. Then stock
has a choice and variety, and the land
is apt to have a denser covering and
more pasturing is thereby afforded.
For manurial purposes it is also bet
ter to grow a variety of grasses and
plants on the same spot. Some draw
more nutriment from the air, others
more from the soil : some send their
roots down deep into the subsoil, oth
ers thrive near tne surface. Perhaps
too, the soil may be wanting in some
materials necessary to the proper
growth of one kind of grass, but it
may be well supplied with what,will
promote the success of another. The
clover may winter kill then there
should be timothy and blue grass.
There is room and food enough in the
soil for many kinds to use at once ;
give nature time enough and she will
put them there. The farmer should
anticipate and place them in his soil
in the beginning.

How to Select Choice Fowls.
Some one who has been taking notes
in the poultry line gives the follow-,
ing directions for selecting fowls that
are young and tender: "A yoaug
turkeyhas a smooth leg and a soft
bill and if fresh the eyes will be bright
and the -feet moist. Old turkeys
have scaly, stiff feet. Young chick
ens have a tender skin, srrlooth legs,
and the breast bone yields readily
to the pressure ot the finger. The
best are those that have yellow legs
The feet and legs of old fowls look as
if they had seen hard service in the
world. Yronng ducks feel tender
under the wing, and the web of the
foot is transparent. The best are
thick and hard on the breast. Young
geese have yellow bills, and the feet
are yellow and suple. The skin
may be easily broken by the head
of a pin ; the breast is plump and
the fat, white. An old goose is unfit
3for the human stomach'.'7
Advice. The Mural
World gives the followin
aavice : . JLet our farmers remember
that to have their cows milked indis
criminately by any of the members
of the family is a loss. Keep a
regular milker for each cow, or one
for all if not too many. Do not
change Milk as fast as possible. Ex
perience proves this to be the best
way. Talk as little as possible while
milking. Let the" cow be perfectly
qaiet and contented. Milk at regu
lar hours ; let those be nearly or quiet
eqmdistantsay twelve hours be
tween each milking. Then there
.will be no straining of the bag by
over distention. These are points
which good dairymen always observe.
Most of all do not walk your cows a
great distance, nor drive'them fast.
