A kind, Word to Formers
Farmers are charged with being pro
-Verbial croakers. It is alleged by those
who are unacquainted with the onerous
duties and numerous cures attendant up
on-their pet-suit, that the farmer is never
satisfied with his surroundings. The
tyeather is adverted to in a complaining
manner. It is either too hot and dry. or
too cold-and wet. The spring is so back
ward ss to retard the rapid growth of
vegitation, er the early warmth acceler
ates the budding of fruit trees, to be in
jured, perhaps, by unseasonable frost and
cold. An excess of rain is a cause of
dissatisfaction, because it tendi t 3 pro
duce rot among the potatoes, and foss
and inconvenience is complained of ow.
mg to repeated rainfults during the per
iod of gathering hay and harvesting
crops. On the other hand, a protracted
spell, of dry weather wises springs to
cease their supply, and convert the ver
dant pasturage into parched and arid
fields.. Thus he his supposed to. be •in a
state of chronic diacinifent, and to hare a
perpetual grumble upon his lips.
• Of all men it is generally believed that
the farmer should be the most contented
and uncomplaining. Do not his crops
grow while he sleeps, and is nut his grain
golden, figuratively speaking at least?
Dues not each blade of grass glisten in
the morning sun with the brilliancy of
the diamond, even if its dewy Waken
be the only cause of such radiance ? And.
then the luxuriance of that most m.agoifi
dent of all the products of the soil—ln
dian corn—how glorious to look upon
when tossing its broad blades in appar
ent exultation, as if rejoiceing iu the
' pride of its rapid grovith! ,
Who that possesses the slightest degree
of poetic sensibility can behold the love
ly scene which the well tilled fields of
the thrifty farmer presents to the view,
• withoht a thrill of pleasure and feeling
of admiration ? The city visitor at a
euuntry home, is apt to regard the far
mer as one who is surrounded with every
comfort, and all the enjoyments of life.—
The after dinner siesta having been in

tably seated upon the ample and well
shaded piazza, to gaze upon the beauties
of nature, and to witness the operations
of-the fanner when performed in view of
theiguest. who is the recipient of gener
oniand painstaking hospitality.
Now all this is very fine and ,affurds a
fruitful theme for comment and word
painting. As a friend once remarked, the
operations of the busy ha -makers pre
sent u pleasing picture to the eye,esienial
ly when contemplated from beneath the
wipe•spreading branches of an unbrag
eons tree. But the toil, care and anxiety
attending the farmer's effort to provide p
livelihood for his family are seldom. 'con
sidered by those who are inexperienced in
his calling, and unacquainted with the
laborious duties required in its prosecu
The farmer is not a croak6r, nor is the
allegation correct that he refers to his
pursuit in conversation to a greater ex—
tent than is noticeable in those who are
engaged in other vocations. Dependant
largely upon atmospheric changes for his
prosperity, it is perfectly natural that
the state of the weather should occupy a
large share of his attention, and form a
subject of frequent retpark. In view of
the liability of-loss and inconvenience in
unpropitious skies, he naturally scans the
heavens with an interest scarcely surpass
ed by the mariner upon the ocean.
We place, great confidence en mother
earth, and believe that she will ever yield
a bounteous reward to the skillfully ap
-plied labor of the linsbandtnan. The
purest and most-tranquil enjoyments of
hie frequently attend the efforts of the
judicious and enterprising farmer, to pro
vide a comfortable maintenance. for his
family. But it must be confessed, with
all his boasted independence, he is sub
jected to the caprices of the weather to a
more injurious extent than those who are
engaged in many other pursuits. The
prolonged absence of rain is a serious
disadvantage. and It is not surprising that
the fact of it is frequently alluded to in
Improving Worn Out Fields.
At a recent meeting of the North Car
olina agricultural society, held at Raleigh
N. C., Mr. T. A. Granger submitted the
following as his method of improving
poor land •
I am satisfied the farmers of this eec
tion of comfit ry are doing a large.amount
of unnecessary labor in improving their
worn out fields. After several years of
hard labor in hauling dirt and com
posting my old worn out fields, I conclu•
'dal to try some other way to improve my
lands beside moving it in a dump cart
from one point to another, and I adopted
the following plan : In October, 1871,
followed my experiment plot of seven
acres with a two horse plow,and .followed
the sage with a sub-soil plow 14 inches
deep, leaving my lends in 20 feet beds:—
Then I seeded it in black oats, 2 bushels
to the acre. The oats were only an aver
age crop fur the land, they ripened May
15th following. On the 25th of June I
reversed the beds and seeded itin cow
peas at the rate of if bus.to the acre. On
the following October I gathered enough
peas from the land to answer for seed and
followed the vines and what green peas
and other vegetable matter had grown
upon the land. On the 15th of October
1872,1 seeded the same land in black oats
again and on the following May harvest
ed a very fine crop, double as much as I
did the year before. In June I reversed
the beds again, and seeded the same in
. cow-peas, at the rate bus. and the fol
lowing October I again gathered a large
crop of seed peas,abont 15 bushels • to the
acre,-only taking the ripest 4)r. seed. I
then followed the vines and green peas in
and seeded the land in black oats and
clover on the following May, 1874. I har
vested a very large crop of oats, 38 bush
els to the acre, and on the land now I
have a fine crop of clover, and I believe
when I get the next crop of clover it will
pay me better than any other crop I have
made on it, and with the clover fallow the
second fail,wiit leave the land deli enough
to produce one bale of cotton or 30 bush
els, of wheat per acre. The land I made
this experiment on was a.poor worn out
field. 'I first in 1870 marled it, and put

Bitters are a purely Vegetable pesparation,
made chiefly from the native herbs found
on the lower ranges of the Sierra Nevada
mountains of California, the medicinal pro
perties of which are extracted therefrom
without the use of Alcohol. The question
is almost daily asked, " What is the cause
of the unparalleled success of Vqretien Err

the cane of &wive, and the patient recov
ers his health They are the great blood
purifier and a life-giving principle, a perfect
Renovator and Invigorator of the system.

accompanied by extensive derangements of

exerting a powerful influence upon these
various organs, is essentially necessary.
