"Well, let us examine it." The cover

It certainly did look good.
"It taspa.sweet, but how• very salt it is."
"We always make our butter salt to
have it keep at this season."
"Locus see if the butter milk is as well

"Nutt., my friend, if your wife has made
butter these twenty years, she does not
know how to make good ; for no butter
can begood until the buttermilk is worked
.If that is done, you need not salt it so
much to have it keep well in any place.-
A very little care and labor would have
made this butter excellent ; but lacking
that little, it is only a second quality, as
you shall acknowledge, when I show you
a sample of good butter.
• We went in and I took up a roll from a
croek oY first rate butter. It was smooth,

The Water simply remarked that there
was a difference in all butter, and left to

It' is strange that when every body loves
good butter.and is vvilling to pay for it, our
farmers' wives and daughters do not take
pains; to make a better article. It is the
women's fault that we have poor butter
generally, and we hold them responsible.
It is is perfectly easy to make good
butter. The only requisite is care.
Good butter will always command a
good price in the' dullest market, while
poor butter a drag at any price.

butter again, just let them imagine that I

THE FARMER'S LIFE

"There is a moral dignity in the pursuit
of agriculture. True, it is toilsome ; but
wltatgainfulpursuitisnotl There are few
merclumtkric professional men who would
not at times willingly exchange their bur
dens, their cares or anxieties, fcir following
the plow or other labor connected with
farming. The young man who fancies
there is so much of leisure and aristocra
cy in trade and the professions, and so
much drudgery in farming, knows less of
human Life than he will be likely to learn
if he lives to middle age. But, while the
laboring people usually attain to greater
longevity than men of leisure, their exer
cise may be considered as conducive to
health, and hence; to happiness ; in labor
itself, there is nothing degrading to the best
feelings of our nature. It is only a vitia•
