there Is actual and almost universal distress
in every channel of industry and trade out'
side of the tillers of the soil. Tbey have
, their lessons also ; they have been taught
that simulated wealth is not prosperity; that
the riches which come with inflated prices
perish as speedily as they come, and that
the old time frugality and steady labor is
the only true fountain of the wealth that
defies the mutations of trade, the revulsions
of values nnd the gnawing of broken peace.
The world has no escape from the Immuta
ble law of God that man shall labor, and
all appearances of exceptions to the man

cries. The idler Is a curse to himself and
to his fellows wherever he is to be found
nnd the most successful In life would appal
the day-laborer with the truthful story of
the ceaseless labor tha is the price of his
achievement. Let none be deluded with
the dream that there are paths to wealth
and happiness which do not lie through the
rugged way of toil, and the labor that gives
plenty and peace as its reward is not to be
discarded for the fickle fortune that leads
the unwary into the bitterest disappoint'
ment. Stick to the farm : it is the gener
ous friend of Industry, and its harvests ever
follow seed-time nmiefct nil tho convul
sions and disasters of speculation and trade.
At the regular meeting of the American
Institute Farmers Club, a member said that
in abundant seasons it is absolutely necess
ary to thin fruit for profit. Thluning sav
es labor lii the regular picking, assorting
and packing. If all fruit growers will thin
they will soon gain large, fine fruit. Some
varieties of peaches the liaruard, for in
stance pay well for thinning. The cost
for thinning 'peaches will not exceed five
cent per basket, but wilt bring almost or
double the usual price per basket, beside

' year's growth of the fruit and wood. The
proeess-of thinning is yery simple and easy,
ana was given iur iuo uene-utoi any who
' . .!. T .
chanced to be informed. In thinning leave
one peachin a limb six inches long. On
last season s' growth make the spaces as even
.as possible od the tree, distributing them so
they cannot awing and rub one another or
the neighboring limbs and fruits. Finish
Jhlnning one limb at a time and Work from
the centre of the tree, Tbls member thinned
his pears as well as bis peaches. He leaves
but one pear on a spur, plcklnc off from one
half to one-third ot the fruit. Weak trees
should be thinned more than strong ones.

lotv to l'lsli for Trout.
Always, If possible, fish down a stream.
There, ate ninny reasons for thN. nmong
others the following: Iu fishing up stream
tho bait li continually coming homo to one'i
feet nt ovcry cast, and the nearer it approach,
a person the less chanco of a bite. The
contrary Is the case In fishing down stream ;
" " "i ' "
the flshcnnau, and his chances of capturo
are each moment increased. If the brook is
large enough and even in rcry smalt ones
If practicable, it is always best to wade In
the middle of the stream, as by this means
one can keep the bait iu the water for long
distances, without making n cast, which in
tho localities I am speaking of, almost al
ways, unless skillfully done, ends in one's
seeing one's tackle fast to some overhang
ing bough or bush overlapping tho stream.
gHin, in fishing up stream, it Is impossible
to keep the bait stationary In any spot ono
may desire to cat in, unlet by standing up-
on tho bank, and the chances of capture are
thus greatly decreased; while in fishing
down stream, one can not only bold the bait
in any spot, but by a motion of thonrm con
duct it in auy given direction-sink It to-
ward the bottom, draw it up stream, to the
right or to the left-to tempt the bidden
trout, the motion of the running water upon
the bait giving one complete control of It by
the slightest motion ol the arm. To be sue-
rcessful in this sport, first give up nil idea of
using artificial .flies; there is usually no
chance to cast them, and very few fish will
rise to them, and then only, usually, nt ear
ly morn or sunset. Use a light but very
short jointed pole, not over twtlv.e feet in
length, with fine delicate running gear, and
small compact reel; small hooks, gauged
upon silk-worm gut, of any make that ona
prefers, thcro being great diversity of opin
ion on this matter among fishermen. The
Limerick hook has nearly gone out of date,
and how it was endured so long is a mystery.
The Kirby nnd Aberdeen have taken its
place. Put no
t lead upon your line at auy
selves. In baiting, do not pay tho slightest
attention to whether the point ot your lmofc
is covered or not ; it Is ot small consequence
or rather it is more deadly and belter not lo
bejeovered than otherwise. The trout does
not nibble, he darts : be takes as a rule the
. .. .... 1
oait at once, or leaves it severely aione. iou
will find no more taking bait the year round
than angle-worms, although grasshoppers at
certain seasons are very killing. In baiting,
take a worm by tho middle and pierce the
hook through a small portion, say, half an
Inch ; then put on another in the same way
and at the same time. If the fish are very
small, half a worm treated In this manner
will do; but a trout has a large mouth, and
a large bait no doubt attracts. The dang
ling ends of the worms placed as above upon
6 hook have a peculiar and natural motion
f tbe.ir own,in lhe, ,aler. wh.ich a fcnnpy
trout 13 utterly uuaUe to rcslsl! wMlo one
ma7. on tUe otller hand, cover the whole
hook and part of the gut with a worm stiffly
trung on without motion, and tho same
trout will let it be carried past him without
There is a great science in baiting, and it
chiefly rests in the skill of haying the worms
lively, and with the extremities left dang
ling. Tho bait is often carried over a little
fall Into a smooth, deep pool ; allow it to
sink, and all the while it is doing so theso
four endsof the twoworms are movingabout
in the clear water in a much ton enticing a
way for any chance trout to resist. When
you have a bite, do not pull at all. but strike
your fish as it is called ; this is done by a
motion of the wrist, sharp, short, abrupt;
not a jerk a motion which is commenced
sharply, but ends almost Instantly and ab
ruptly. I can liken it only lo n quick move
ment of tho hand in bnrging in fencing,
from ticrct lo carle. It is done by bringing
the finger-nails, which are downward, hold-
ng the rod, suddenly to the left and up
ward and to the left some one or two feet.
Having struck thus, you will in most cases
have. captured yourfisb. lie in no hurry to
land him; that is a simpler thing to do
you can do it at your leisure, stepping back
to a sure foundation should you be in an un
comfortable position in reaching to make
the cast, or mako auy other disposition that
you Jdesire before raising your fish gently
from the water thence to your creel. The
great mistake olten made by those who do
not understand this sport is to pull tho mo-
ment they have a Wto ; the result usually is
tosee the trout wim lumsen round about
some limb overhead, or if he fail to be hook
ed, which Is often the case in pulling, to sec
the halt nnd hook often in the same posi
tion, causing a loss of time, patience, and
too often temper, especially when you feel
confident there are other trout in the pool
ahead, and become aw aro of the fact that
you have got to make a splash and dash and
complete exposure of yourself to get at your
dangling line, so that you may fish in vain
in the same pool afterward. Remember that
trout aro very shy, and once having disturb-
1 them It is useless to fish for them.
