The Old Pennsylvania Farmer.
BY BAYARD TAYLOR.
Well—well ! this is comfort, now—the day
is mild as May,
And yet 'tis March the twentieth, or twen
ty-first, to-day ;
And Reuben plows the hill for corn ; I
thought it would be tough,
But now I see the furrows turned, I guess
it's dry enough.
I don't half live, penned up in doors, the
stove's not like the sun,
When I can't see how things go on, I think
they're badly done :
I might have farmed till now, I think—
one's family is so queer—
As if a man can't oversee who's in his
Father, I mind, was eighty-five before he
gave up his;
But he was dim o' sight, and crippled with
I followed in the old, steady way, so he
But Reuben likes new-fangled things and
ways I can't abide.
I'm glad I built this southern porch; my
chair seems easy here;
I haven't seen as fine a spring this five and
twenty years !
And now time goes around so quick !—a
week, I would have sworn,
Since they were husking on the flat, and
now they plough for corn !
When I was young, time had for me a lazy
But now it's like a blooded horse, that
means to win the race.
And yet I can't fill out my days, I tire
myself with naught;
I'd rather use my legs and hands than
plague my head with thought.
There's Marshall, too, I see from here; he
and his boys again •
Why don't they take the lower field ? that
one is poor and thin.
A coat of lime it ought to have, but they're
a doless set :
They think swamp-mud's as good, but we
shall see what corn they get !
Across the level, Brown's new place begins
to make a show ;
I thought he'd have to wait for trees, but,
bless me how they grow !
They say it's fine—two acres filled with
evergreens and things ;
But so much land ! it worries me, for not
a cent it brings.
He has the right, I don't deny, to please
himself that way,
But 'tis a bad example set, and leads young
folks astray ;
Book-learning gets the upper hand and
work gets slow and slack.
And they that come long after us will find
things gone to rack.
Now Reuben's on the other side, his team
comes back again ;
I know how deep he sets the share, I see
• the horses strain ;
I had 'hat field so clean of stones, but he
must plow so deep,
He'll have it like the turnpike soon, and
scarcely fit for sheep.
If father lived, I'd like to know what he
would say to these,
New notions of the younger men, who farm
There's different stock and other grass ;
there's patent plough and cart—
Five hundred dollars for a bull; it would
have broke his heart.
The maples must be putting out; I see a
Down yonder where the clearing laps
across the meadow's head.
Swamp-cabbage grown beside the run; the
green is good to see,
But wheat's the color, after all, that cheers
and livens me.
They think I have an easy time, no need
to worry now—
Sit in the porch all day and watch them
mow, and sow, and plow ;
Sleep in the summer in the shade, in win
ter in the sun—
I'd rather do the thing myself, and know
just how it's done !
Well—l suppose I'm old, and yet 'tis not
so long ago
When Reuben spread the swath to dry,
and Jesse learned to mow,
And William raked, and Isreal hoed, and
Joseph pitched with me,
But such a man as I was then, my boys
will never be !
I don't mind William's hankering for lec
tures and for books ;
He never had a farming knack—you'd
see it in his looks :
Doc handsome is that handsome does, and
he is well to do ;
'Twould lase my mind if I could say, the
same of Jesse, too.
There's one black sheep in every flock, so
there must be in mine,
But I was wrong that second time his bond
It's less than what his share will be—but
there's the interest ;
In ten years more, I might have had two
thousand to invest.
There's no use thinking of it now, and
yet it makes me sore ;
The way I've slaved and saved, I ought to
count a little more,
I never lost a foot of land, and that's a
And if they do not call me rich, they
cannot call me poor.
Well, well ! ten thousand times I've
thought the things I'm thinking now ;
I've thought them in the harvest field and
in the clover-mow ;
And sometimes I get tired of them, and
wish I'd something new—
But this is all I've seen and known ; so
what's a man to do ?
'Tis like my time is nearly out; of that I'm
not afraid ;
I never cheated any man and all my debts
They call it rest that we shall have ; but
work would do no harm ;
There can't be rivers there, and fields,
without some sort of farm.

Washes For Fruit Trees.
Twice a year, at least, every fruit in the
orchard should be washed with some li
quid, strong enough to destroy the eggs
and pupa of insects, and the roots and
spores of mosses and fungi. In using
caustic lye for the destruction of bark
lice, several persons have killed their trees,
as sometimes the bark turns black and
peels off after the application of this wash,
and the death of the tree follows. Lime
whitewash is recommended by some per
sons, but it is unsightly and disapproved
of by the most experienced fruit growers;
soap suds are harmless, but are too mild for
the purpose for which the application is
required. The most suitable was his a solu
tion of common sal-soda in the proportion
of one pound of soda to a gallon of water.
Rain water is the best for this purpose.
This wash will not injure the bark, but
will kill the eggs or pupae of insects, and
will clear away mosses, etc. It will re
move bark and produce a healthy surface
There are indications at
wesent, in some
quarters, of an increasing desire for more
efficient educational facilities for the masses,
and the future looks hopeful. Our present
common school system was a great improve
ment upon the previously existing plan,
and accomplished much good, but in this
rapidly progressive age it is inadequate to
the work to be done. The system was op
posed at its introduction, by deep-seated
prejudice, the offspring of ignorance and
penuriousness. It has been modified and
supplemented till it has become a system of
incongruities, difficult to understand by
those whose duty it is to administer it and
cumbrous in its application.
It would be well to revise and codify the
existing laws, repeal useless and inconsis
tent parts, and supply others that are need
ed to render it more efficient. Since the
common school system was introduced into
Pennsylvania our civil laws have been twice
revised and codified, and the same has been
done with our criminal laws; and now pub
lic opinion calls for a convention to revise,
alter and amend the Constitution, the or
ganic law of the State, although it has un
dergone a similar revision since the adop
tion of the common school system. Those
laws, civil and penal, like our educational
laws, were scattered through as many books
almost as there were intervening years, and
it was found necessary to appoint commis
sioners to revise, alter, amend, and repeal
portions of them, and to supply others to
make a complete and harmonious whole;
and in such forms they have been re-enact
ed by the legislature. Our school laws
could, no doubt, be greatly simplified and
improved in a similar manner.
But there is a great question underlying
all this. It is whether the State has not
such an interest in the great policy of edu
cation as to make it a dutyincumbent upon
her to provide all the necessary facilities
for the education of every child within her
domain on a scale much more ample and
better than the present? Graded schools
and high schools are accomplished facts in
all the cities and large towns; and this is
conclusive evidence of their utility, and no
argument is needed to prove that they are
more efficient than the ungraded schools of
the small villages and rural districts.—
"Whether graded schools can 'be established
in rural districts to good advantage" is a
question often discussed in our teachers'
institutes, and it is one which is well wor
thy of the attention of all friends of edu_
cation. While the object of the law is to
give to all equal opportunities, the fact can
not be concealed that the poorer and the
more sparsely settled districts are not ben
efitted in an equal degree with the more
populous and wealthy. To obviate this, to
some extent at least, borough, ward, town
ship and district limits should be abrogated
and the funds raised in the whole State
should be so applied as to give all the chil
dren in the Commonwealth as nearly equal
facilities as practicable for obtaining an ed
The free educational system should sub
stitute a salaried board of education in lieu
of directors, and include within its ample
provisions seminaries, academies and colle
ges for superior general education, leaving
nothing of an educational character to pri
vate enterprise except special education—
schools of Theology, of Medicine, and of
These changes would all become easy
whenever the people—those who are to
furnish the means and reap the benefits—
are educated up to the point of appreciating
that the education of the whole of mon—
the physical, social, moral, intellectual and
spiritual manhood—is the great business of
life; and that such an education is a better
and richer legacy to leave to children than
houses and lands, or stocks, or bonds and
mortgages, which may take wings and fly
These crude thoughts present but an out
line of the coming system of education ; but
they may excite to activity more intelligent
minds and active hands in the great and
noble work which is to h., done.
Drawing in Public Schools,
Our system of education is not sufficient_
ly general. It results only in the produc
tion of lawyers and doctors, or, at the least,
of clerks and school teachers. Children
receive the impression that education has
no bearing upon mechanics; that a trade is
only manual drudgery. Why is it that a
majority of our apprentices are of foreign
parentage ? Why is it that American boys
are growing too proud to "learn a trade ?',
Why is it that they select the weakest em
ployments in preference to manly mechan
ical work ? Is the cause not found in the
fact that there is a growing disposition to
discredit every means of livelihood that
does not consist in "brain work" merely ;
or, that our whole system of education has
quite ignored industrial life ?
When our instruction provides our youth
with some intelligence to prosecute honest
bodily labor, the trades will be filled by a
more cultivated class of young men, and
our boys will blush to be found selling
needles and pins ; but they will not be asha
med to be seen using the hammer and
What shall be the antidote for the evils
arising from our American Educational sys
tem ? Anything, we may answer that brings
manual skill again into repute. Skill in
mechanical labor is always associated with
a fine sense of form and proportion. This
sense is to be trained by Drawing. Then,
duty and interest demand that this branch
be made a required study in every public
school in the Commonwealth.
Much artistic talent of a higher order
now lies undeveloped in the community,
wherefore the nation deplores the lack of
good designers. This power is evinced in
children from the accuracy and interest dis
played in copying pictures. Cultivate this
in the youthful mind and we need no long
er send millions of dollars to Europe for
articles, which can be produced cheaper at
The °acceding value of Drawing, aside
from mere artistic production, is the train
ing it gives the arms, hands and fingers for
any sort of work—the eye to see and the
mind to perceive and comprehend; is the
power, acquired, to express ideas by draw-
ing, for all ordinary business of life. The
mechanic, especially, realizes th.e advantage,
and should possess the skill of correctly
representing a definite form before him,
or the idea of such a form he may have in
his mind. The ability of a foreman in a
shop, should be to give accurate sketches
of machines or parts of machines, or of any
structure and the parts thereof. More, the
workman must have some knowledge of the
art to understand such diagrams as may be
laid before him. It is calculated that the
productive efficiency of every machine shop
would be increased thirty-three per cene. if
journeymen could read any common work
ing-drawing and work from it.
Furthermore, and briefly, Drawing is an
aid in the school-room to all other branches
of study. It assists greatly the learning to
write ; it cultivates the power of attention,
order and arrangement, also the sense of
fitness and good taste, and, lastly, it affords
scope for rational enjoyment and occupa
Parents, let it be urged upon you that
you advocate strongly, the introduction of
this art into our schools, as a means, if for
none other, of elevating industrial life to
its proper dignity tmong us. Impose the
duty on your directors that they see to this
and your other interests. If they will not
arouse their latent powers, in behalf of your
children, from pure philanthropic motives,
let a recompense be offered them ; for some
have unworthily said that "it does not pay
to leave business and be interested in this
cause for nothing.

PIIILADELPIIIA, PA., Feb. 25, 1867,
H. T. HELMBOLD, Druggist:
Dear Sir:—l have been a sufferer, for upward
of twenty years, with gravel bladder and kidney
affections, during which time I have need various
medicinal preparations, and have been under the
treatment of the most eminent Physicians, experi
encing little relief.
lla;ing seen your preparations extensively ad
vertised, I consulted with my family physician in
regard to using your Extract Buchn.
- -•- • - •
I did this beCiuse I had used all kinds of ad
vertised remedies, and had found them worthless,
and, some quite injurious ; in fact, I despaired of
ever getting well, and determined to use no reme
dies hereafter unless I knew of the ingredients. It
was this that prompted me to use your remedy.
As you advertised that it was composed of huchu,
enbebs and juniper berries, it occurred to me and
my physician as an excellent combination, and,
with his advice after an examination of the article
and consulting again with the druggist, I conclud
ed to try it. I commenced its use about eight
months ago, at which time I was confined to my
room. From the first bottle I was astonished and
gratified at the beneficial effect, and after using it
three weeks, was able to walk out. I felt much
like writing you a full statement of my case at
that time. but thought my improvement might
only be a temporary, and therefore concluded to
defer and see if it would effect a perfect cure,
knowing then it would be of greater value to you,
and more satisfactory to me. _
I am now able to report that a cure is effected
after using the remedy for sive months.
I have not used any now for three months, and
fell as well in all respects, as I ever did.
Your Buohu being devoid of any unpleasant
taste and odor—a nice tonic and invigorator of the
system. Ido not mean to be without it whenever
occasion may require its use in such affections.
