WEONESDA' MORNING Dec. 22, '69,
The Hornet is an it fianamible bug
ger., sudden in his impreshuns, and
hasty in hi z conclusions, or end.
His nat.ral disposition iz a warm
cross between red pepper in the pod,
and fusil oil, and his moral hiss iz,
"get out uv wy way."
They have a long black boddy, di
vided in the middle by a waist spot,
but their pbisikal importance lies at
the terminus of their t:obburb, in the
shape of a javlein.
This javlein is alwuz loaded, and
stands reddy to unload at a minnut's,
warning, and enter a man az still az
theught,as spry as litenio, and as full
of melancholy as the toothake. Horn
ets never argy a kase ; they settle awl
ov their differences of ()pippin by let
tin their javelein fly, and are as sur
tain to hit az a mule iz.
This testy critter lives in congrega
tions numbering about one hundred
soles, but whether they are mail or
fearnalo, or conservative, or matched
in bonds of wedlock, or whether they
are Mormuns, and a good many of
them klieg together and kepe one
husband to save expence, I dont know
or dent hare.
I never have examined their habits
much, I never konsidered it healthy.
Hornets laid their nests whenever
they tare a noshun tu,and seldom are
disturbed, for what would it profit a
man to kill 99 hornets and hay the one
hundredth one hit him with his jape
They bild their nests of paperovith
out any back doors to them or win
dows. They have but one place of ad
mission,andthe_riGst iz the same shape
of an overgrown pineapple, and is cut
up into jist as many bed rooms as
there iz hornets.
It iz very simple to make a hornets'
nest if you kan. but i will wajer enny
man 300 dollars that he kant bild one
that he could sell to a hornet for half
Hornets are as bizzy az their second
couzins, the bee, but whatever they
are about the Lord only knows; they
don't lay up any honey or enny mon,
ey ; they seem to be busy just for the
purpose ov working all the time; they
are alwuz in az much of a hurry az if
they was goin for a docter ;
I spose this uneasy world would
grind around on its axle-tree onct in
24 hours if there want enny hornets,
but hornets must be good for some—
tlinz., but I cant think now what it
There liairit been abug made yet in
vain, nor one that want a good job.
Thare is ever lots ov human .men loaf
ing around blacksmith shops, and
cider mills, all over the country, that
don't seem to be neccsary for anythinz
but to beg plug tobacco, and swear,
and to steal water-melons, but you let
the cholera break out once, and then
yu will see the wisdom of having jist
sich men laying around ; they help to
Next tew the cock - roach,who stands
tew the head, the hornet haz got the
Most waste stummuk,in reference tow
the rest of his body than enny ov the
insek population, and heie is another
mystery; wat on arth duz a hornet
want s^ mutch reserved corps for ?
I have jist thought—tow carry his
javelin in ; this ye see, the more we
disk - over the more we are apt to know.
It is always a good purchase tew
pay out yer last surviving dollar for
wisdutn ; and wisdom is like the mys
tenons lien's egg, it ain't laid in pure
hand,but is laid away under the barn,
and yu have gat to carob for it.
The hornet is an unusual kuss,he iz
more haughty than he is proud, he iz
a thoroughbred bug, but his breeding
and refinement haz made hint like
sum other folk I kno ov, dissatisfied
with himself and evrn}, , loody else ; tou
much good greeding ackts in this way
Hornets are long-lived—l kant state
jist how long their lives are, but I
know from instinkt and observashun
that enny kriter, be be bug or be he
devil. who is mad all the time and
stings every good chance he can git,
generally outlives all his nabers.
The only good way to get at the ex
act fiteing weight of the hornet is tew
touch him, let him hit you once with
his javelin, and yon will be willing to
testify in court that some one run a
one-tined pitchfork into yer ; and az
for grit, i will state for the inlorma—
shun ov thoze who hav'nt had a chan
ce tew lay in their vermin wisdom az
i hay, that one single hornet, who
feels well, will brake up a large camp
What the hornets do for amusement
is another question leant answer, but
some ov the best read, and heaviest
thinkers amung the naturalists say
they have target excursions,and heave
their javelins at a mark, but i don't
imbibe this assershon raw, for i never
knu any body so bitter at heart az the
hornets are, to waste a blow.
Tharp is one thing that a hornet
duz that i will give him credit for on
my books, he alwuz attends tew his
own bizziness, and won't allow enny
boddy else tew attend tew it, and what
he duz is always a good job,you never
see them altering anything, if they
make enny mistakes it iz after dark,
and ain't seen,
If the hornets made hall as many
blunders as the men do, even with
their javelins, every boddy would
laugh at them.
klurn _ts are clear in anocher way,
they leave found out, bytrieing, thug;
awl they ledn git in this world, and
brag on, iz their vittles, and clothes,
and you never see one standin at the
corner ov a street, with a twenty—six
inch face on. because sum banker had
run oph, and took their money with
In ending oph this essa, I will cum
to a stop by concluding that if the
hornet was a little mcie pensive, and
not so darned peremptory with their
javelins, they might be guilty of less
wisdum, but more charity.
:But you k-arit alter bug natur, with
•ont spiking it for anything else, enny
more than you kan an elephant's egg.
Keeping a Farm Journal.
No doubt there are farmers who
commence business with a determin
ation to keep a daily record of their
operations on the farm,and the results
of them. This resolve is carried into
execution for a time, but after a While
intermissions in these jottings occur,
and finally cease altogether. This
delinquency does not prove that the
practice is not a good one, and as an
incentive to perseverence, we would
cite a case of a man who commenced
farm life bareheaded, but eventually
attained great wealth—a result he at.
tributed in a great measure to a daily
journalizing of his farm operations a
practice kept up for forty-five years,
and not then discontinued.
These daily memoranda were made
in books of convenient size, each con
taining the records of a single year,
and when full properly labelled and
and filed away for future reference
when desirable. They contained the
number of fields farmed each year,
the amount of labor bestowed, the
actual yield, the names of the parties
employed each day, the daily receipts
for stock and farm products sold,
money paid out, and for what purpose.
the character of the weather, together
with such reflections as the current
news of the day supplied. This jour
nal was uniformly written on each
night just before retiring to rest, but
when the party was absent, as was
occasionally the case, it was the duty
of the person in charge to make the
necessary memoranda each evening.
These records were often appealed
to, to decide disputed points in regard
' to the weather and crops of particular
seasons, and not unfreguently taken
before the courts for the purpose of
determining the date of particular
transactions. At first these nightly
records may prove rather irksome,
but if the practice is kept up persever
ingly for two or three years it becomes
a habit pleasureable rather than other
wise, and profitable to the parties who
steadily pursue it. —l7nerican Fanner.
Keeping Winter Pears.
No fruit is worse treated than the
late autumn and winter pears. They
are generally gathered before their
time,and then kept in dry atmosphere.
What wonder is it that fruit which
should be melting and delicious, turns
out to be a shriveled, tough and taste
less thing? Most late varieties hang
on well, and should be allowed to re
main until there is danger of hard
frosts; they are to be carefully picked
when dry, placed in boxes or barrels,
and kept as cool as possible. It is
not a good plan to take them to the
cellar until the weather becomes so
cold as to endanger their freezing.—
When in the teller, the temperature
must be kept as low as possible with
out danger of frost. Do not mix
varieties in the same package. The
different sorts have each their own
time for maturing. A frequent ex
amination will show how the process
of ripening is going on, and the slow
' er this progresses the finer the fruit is
likely to be. When the proper
changes have taken place within the
fruit, it is indicated by a change in
the color of the skin. When this
commences the fruit may be taken in
small quantities at a time to a warm
room, to "finish off." We have seen
even the despised and much abused
Vicar of Winkfield, when treated in
this manner, prove itself a most ac
cepteble pear. —Exchange.
FARMING. —lt is with farming as it
is with every other business ; it must
be attended to or it will not pay.
This is more so now than fomerly,
For vow machinery does the work of
hand labor s and Fcience is adding suc
cess which the common farmer can
not reach, hence he is found in the
rear of profit and general success.
There must be intelligence. The ad—
vancement of farming has made this
so. "Skinning" land must he among
the thins that were. This, however,
is less the case on the prairies than
in the East. An old fashioned farmer
stands but a poor chance there. He
is constantly selling out to "better his
condition," which isnot done by buy
ing another farm. He is generally glad
to get rid of his land. We must, then,
as the country improves, improve
with it, and that by informing our
selves, both by reading and conver—
sation with those who know.
A Philadelphia paper says that an
eminent surgeon of that city had his
horses washed in the morning with
water inwhich one or two sliced onions
had been steeped. He found that the
flies kept at a respectable distance,
while no harm was done to the ani
mals. A separate bucket or vessel
other than that used to water the
horses, would be necessary, and great
relief would be obtained at a small
