—The low prices of farm produce have
discouraged some ers, hut the result
will be an improvement in the manage-
ment of farms. Low prices do not imply
poverty for there are thousands of. farmers
with well-filled granaries, who have more
than enough for their support, but who-can
realize but little for their surplus. While
they may have more than enough in one or
more articles, yet something else may be in
demand. There is too much dependence
placed on special crops, and diversified
The sails we see on the ocean
Are as white as white can be,
But never one in the harbor
As white as the sails at sen.
And the clouds that crown the mountains
With purple and gold delight,
Turn to cold gray mist and vapor
Ere ever we reach the heizht.
The mountains wear crowns of glory
Only when seen afar,
And the sails lose all their whiteness
Inside of the harbor bar.
Stately and fair is the vessel
That comes not near our beach ;
Stately and grand the mountain
Whose height we may never reach.

Every one, old and young, needs rest

No PRE place can compare with South-
ern New Jersey in seaside resorts, either in
point of number or of excellence. At-
lantic City is the most popular resort in
America, and Cape May, Isle City, Ocean

add to their list. Whenever they find that
there are portions of the year when they
may be idle the first consideration should
be how best to utilize such time. = The
minor industries on the farm are sources of
profit. The keeping of large flocks of poul-
try is a winter occupation which should
not be confined to women and children but
be made a business, as there is nothing pro-
duced on the farm that gives so large a pro-
fit in proportion to cost as eggs. Give the
fowls room, as is done for cows ; put the
labor in that direction, and make a busi-
ness of supplying fresh eggs to customers,
and there will be weekly returns at a sea-
son of the year when crops are not growing
and when the labor would be thrown away
because it cannot be otherwise profitably
employed. Lost time is lost money when
the farmer cannot find employment.
—The striped cucumber beetles have
been a serious drawback to growers of mel-
ons, squash, cucumbers and pumpkins,
and to get rid of them is a laborious opera-
tion. One of the methods used is to sift
coal ashes, having them fine, and to every
gallon of ashes add half a gill of kerosene
and the same of fish oil, intimately mixing
the whole, which ‘is then dusted over the
plants and around then three times a week.
If too strong use two gallons of ashes with
the kerosene and oil.
—Grain is not absolutely necessary to
paper, like Othello, before twenty-four
hours my occupation would be gone. The
man who would be so honest as to write
honest opinions would soon be out on the
streets hunting another job. The business
of a New York journalist is to distort the
truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to villify,
to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell
his country and his race for his daily
bread, or, for what is about the same thing,
hissalary. You know this and I know it ;
and what foolery it is to be boasting of an
independent press. We are the tools and
vassals of rich men behind the scenes.’”’

Four storehouses are filled and tiers upon
tiers, of casks, up and down stairs, and in
some cases huge vats, occupy every availa-
ble spot, leaving only little alley ways,
through which to walk. It is a vast quan-

of milk some farmers reduce the feed be-

mer there is usually a loss of milk from in-
sect annoyances to the cows, but they will
not regain their full flow unless the food is
given liberally. :
