The glory of being the parent of the only
epic production read fell to P. Pewter Bang-,
Eiq , a lobster-faced man with a breast like
a crab. Ho heaved out forty-seven stanzas
all about as bad as this :

A weazened little lady, with a penny
whistle voice, with a knob of thin hair
twisted tightly between her ears arose and
allowed sixteen verses to creep out between
her six dollar teeth, which opened In this
"The llttlo lambs gambol ;

The best looking girl lu the collection,
decorated with Irantie bangi and a bustle as
big as a bolster, tripped off this little en
trancing verse :
"Thou art tho bene or the seasons ;
Tls to thy chtrins mat I sing j
For this there aro dozens of reasons.
Thou bright young maiden, calledsprlng.

'That is most txcruclatlngly lovely,' said
the chairman; 'but it has oue serious fault
it Is too bhort. Never cramp your soul to
less than sixteen verses. That is the advice
of one who has written long and suffered.'
Theu, addressing the association, President
O'Gall gave the following sound advice to
the members ;
'.My dearly beloved but crushed and swoon
ing sisters and brothers of tho poetic mute :
The auspicious season Is at hand when you
should shake off, as it were, your burnirg ef
fusions, and send them to theunapprcciatlve
editor for publication. Educate him up to
n proper appreciation of your ability by per
sistent 'lays.' Do not allow tho thoughts of
the gaping tcrap-basket to startle your muse.
Ilj not abashed by (he cynical editor ; for
Spring -gentle, ethereal Spring is at hand,
according to custom, and sighs that her
charms are not sung. It is just ns easy to
write poetry on Spring as it is to polish a
stovepipe, Nature has cast you in n mould
ubove stoveplpo polishing, and the muse cries
aloud to you to grapple your pen and grind
Some hidden beauties are still unrevealed
by your tiumerous tribe. Go, theu, to your
Mrveral habitations and write write of the

CULTIVATION OF CORN.
How little tho world profits by annual ex'
perlcnce. Every year as tho season for vn
rious operations come nroiind, discussions
Rrle ns to the valuo of certain practices In
connection with these crop", which go over
thosamo ground ns those formerly occupied,
and which really tell nothing new, Jtit
now the nnnual question as to whether It Is
best to sow corn In drills or In hills is taken
up with a warmth and enthusiasm which
would do justice ton subject to be discussed
for tho first time. Tliocuilous putt of this
discussion is that the agricultural colleges
seem to lead olf In it One would suppose
Institutions of learning would know nil that
was already known and not set themselves
to expulsive experiments to find out what
every Intelligent farmer knows.
During the past fifty years hundreds and
hundrods of people havo tried whether or
not lrioro corn can bo raised to the aero by
sowing In drills, ns marking out one way is
cilled, than when Ills nwu In the check
work or hill plan, and the evidence has ben
uniform that when the plants are not closer
than eighteen Inches npart In the row, tho
weeds kept down, and the general culture
the -111118 ns for hilled corn, there Is more
corn to the acre produced. If thero evtr
has been a doubt of this expressed afur act
ual trial we have lint heard it.
Hut the real point of interest Is whether
this way of growing corn is the most profit
able? Wo n.sl-ed this question some time
since, aud wo believe no did see an article
in reply, to show that it was the most profita
ble. The figures were given, and as they
were given, made to appear In favor of tho
drilling plan. In tho drllllm; way it is
found that much more hand labor Is reiuir-
ed than when planted in hills that the hor-e
can do most of the wotk. Iu tho figures giv
en the value of the horse's work on the hill
plan was given as if he had been hired at
so many dollars a day. In tho drill system
as given In the figures, there seemed to be a
great saving of horse labor: but In all prob
ability while the osnerof that crop was
hammering away at the weeds with a hoe
along the line, the horse was idling away in
the stnblo eatingbis head off.
It seems to us that at times our agricultu
ral colleges do not go enough Into the profits
ol things. There are in farming a thousand
things which aro true, but which are not
profitable. iNow agriculture is not a sci
ence, nor was It ever intended to be, nor will
it ever be a science : but it can and docs re-
celvo great aid from science. It is science
which discovers that a rowof com will yield
more than the same lineal measurement in
hills ; but true ugricullure is that which de
cides whether after all wo can make the lit
tle bit of science profitable. Gtrmantoicn
Tin: I'AKrr.inar.. To show how useful
tho beautiful and harmless partridge i, it
is stated that a (lock of them was seen run
ning along the rows of corn just sprouting.
and seeing them engaged at something vhich
was believed to be pulling up tho voting
plants, one of them was killed and its crop
examined, which was found to contain one
cut worm, twenty-one striped bugs nod over
one hundred chinch-bugs. Ano her man
says he has adopted measures to protect the
birds, and tbat they have become to numer
ous and so tamo that hundreds of them, alter
the snow falls, can bo seen in the barnyard
with his fowls when they are fed. As a re
sult of their presence upon his premises, his
wheat crops wvre unusually abundant, while
in many other places not far off the chinch-
bugs and other insects had destroyed half
tho crop. jMhanrc.
"1 Don't Want That Stuff,"
Is what a lady of Boston said to her hus
band "hen he brought home some medicine
to cure her of sick headache and neuralgia
which had made her miserable i6i fourteen
years. At the first nttnek thereafter, it was
administered to htr with such good results,
that she continued itsuso until cured, and
made so enthusiastic in its praNe, that she
induced twenty-two of tho best ladies in her
circle to adopt it as their regular family
medicine. That 'stuff is Hop Bitters.
