through: which rain •and snow sometimes
beat'; his apple trees were 'scabbed with old
bark, and the tops were disfigured with -scrag

if anything; than did Mr. Thompson ; but
yet his matters were always at loose ends,
and; he often wondered how it Was that his
neighbor pushed things along smoothly, and
kept everything in such excellent order.
"ah, Thompson" said Holmes one day in
the spring, as,he came up to the door of the
former "".have you got an inch augur ?"
" Certainly," returned Thompson ; "I
eouldri't get along on a farm without one."
"I wish you would lend" it to me a little
while Ihave delayed sowing my grain for
two days, beeause,my harrow is broken, and
I bad no tools with which to mend it."
I will lendlt to you with pleasure," said
Thompson. And then, as a. sudden thought
seemed to strike him, he added :
"They tell me, Mr. Holmes, that you lost
one of 3-our cows yesterday."
''Yes,' returned Holmes, with an uneasy
look, "one of the best cows I had."

"She broke her leg.":
"Broke her leg'! How, pray ?
"Why you see the floor in my tie-up had
got rather worn out and shaky, and the night
before last she got one of her legs through
it,-and snapped the bone off like a pipe -stem,
and so I had-to kill her."
"'Alt ; Mr. tiohnes, these are things we

labor at the proper time woulil have saved all

Mr. Thompson turned towards the shed doOr,

constantly. meeting : with , obstacles ,_that re
tarded his Progres, all for- the' want: of a few
•siMple. tools. •' , '',
'One rainy day in the fall, after the harves
ting was completed, Mr. Thoinpson was in
his tool chamber making some apple boxes,
when his neighbor Holmes entered. ~
"Mr. Thompson," said the latter, after he
had watched the movements Of his neigh-
box's fore-plane a few moments, "how mudh
did that sled of yours 'cost '?. ' I have,one this
"Oh that cost me nothing. I made it my
self during - some of those rainy days that we
had just before harvesting. I got the timber
•out when I hauled my wood last winter ; so
the job came easy." -
"Well neighbor Thompson," said Holmes,
after some little time spent•in hard study, I
don't see how it is that you'get alang - so.--.
Your farm don't produce any more than mine
does, and I'm sure you don't' ward; !'so hard
as I do. Your wile,
, don'i. 'make any bet
ter butter or cheese than mine does ; your
sheep don't bear better wool; your bees don't
make better honey. You . raise" more fruit
than I do to- be sure."
: "But I have no more trees," said Thomp-
"No ; but then your fruit was of a better
quality and finds a more ready market."
"Certainly, because I have grafted in the
best species. My trees were the same as
yours twelve years ago, -and with regard to
other matters, I think if yon will look about
-the two places, you will find that in many
respects mine is the most productive. My
cows give more milk than yours do through
the.wiater, because, they, have better shed
room and a warner barn.- I-raise more pork
than you do, because my pens and pig houses
are tight and comfortable ; am' then I am in
clined to think my bees .make more honey
than yours do, for my hives are in better or
der. 1 may not raise more corn than you du,
but I guess the rats and squirrels don't have
such easy entrance to my grain chambers as
they do to yours." . -•;
"Perhaps-you are right," muttered Holmes,
with a crestfallen look ; "and suppose you
are laying by.money." .
"Ceriamly I am—one or two hundred dol
lars every year."
"Why, so much as that I" uttered Holmes,
with a look of surprise. "Why 1 can't lay
"Let me give you a piece of. secre,," said
ThompsOn, in . a:kitid, neighborly tone as he
laid his plane upon the bench,. -
'Last summer you bought four-- iieW rakes
and a pitchfolk.: Now, : how much did they
cost you - ••
Let's see ; the rakes came to twenty -five
cents apiece, and the forks come to-a dollar.'
Well, now my fork handle got broke
accidentally laSt winter, and so did some of
the rakes; but I immediately took such parts
as were good and brought them up here, and
then at' my first leisure bpportanity, fixed
them up. There were two dollars saved.--
Now you have nothing to do to. day: • :
• No, it rains too hard.'
And yet you see I am
,at work. Nov
how are-you going to get . your apple box

for it. I had one hundred and seventy-five
.I . .iOurrds; 'and by reckoning it over after I had

time.. •„. . . . ,
Mostly,' returned Thorripsori, . .
1 ' Well, if I had the tools, 1 .might save a
geed- many small sums in the course of a
year, J but, to - lever had any money to spare
for them. Why the tools you have here and

' Just about that sum.'
' Then I fear
,Ishall have to scrape along
with borrowed -tools. I can never spare such
, • i
a sum as that:?
! 'You dont understand the secret, Mr.
( Holmes. Let me explain. I never should
have gone with fifty dollar bill and bought
tools, but I Collected them gradually. I have
1 I bought every tool on my premises with my
I...etro_cr- money. 7 , - • '
" ' GROG MONEY I' reiterated Holmes, in
blank surprise. '
( ' ' Yes. returned Thompson, with a slight
smile, ' with my grcg money. Now I' am
not goino. to give you a temperance lecture,
for you are as well able to judge for yourself
las I am; but I am going to give you a little
principle of economy - , content and happiness.
The first year I was on this farm I used oc
casionally to take a little spirits,-and when-
ever I would go to the village, .which was
usually twice a \Veek, I would drink two or
three times. I know not that I experienced
I -viy . bad effects .from : it. but lam confident
( that it did me no good, and that it was a
- habit that might grow- to: a big evil.: As
near as' I could calculate, the spirits I had
.use.d cost me on an average : twenty five cents
.' Yes, every cent of it.:
Well, i commenced on the first of Janua
r: to lay up my grog money, and with that
disposition came a peculiar desire to com
mence saving in!.other ways, and I soon
found the means of stopping up many more
gaps in my financial affairs. I saw how
*much might, be saved if I could only do some
-work whichl.was obliged to pay for, and to
this end I commenced buying- such Cools asl
thought would come
,most, handy. At the
end of the first year I:found myself the own
er of thirteen dollars, worth of tools, and it
all came from
,the Money I might have drank
• felt stronger:and heartier than I did
the year before, and I felt mach happier,. for
I knew that I was laying' the foundation of
future good. ,
Time passed and my twenty five
cents a week kept coming in. It was now
a saw, then a hammer, then another, then a
new auger, then a bit stock and bits, until in
eleven years, Ihave not only collected an ex
cellent variety of tools, but I have drawn di
rectly from my grog found nearly a hundred
dollars besides; but the value of my tools can
not be estimated in money; as I have already
shown you. They are not only a source of
great profit, but they are also ,a source of an
incalculable degree of comfort. rk. small
gap in a man's business affairs may seem a
trifling thing 'at .first, but it is like a hole in
a bank thaCconfines the high waters o c
lake: The ! almoSt' insignificant stream will
be sure to grow frightfully larger, and unless
soon stopped .up the pare waters of the lake
will . ere long lose themselves in the neigh
;boring streams. I believe,, my. friend, that
in giving tip-groiz, I have 'not sacrificed one
single. comfort. Now don't you 'think that
You. Would feel as well without 1 Compare

lage r but instead of bringing ho'ne his little
brown jug, he brought home an augur, and
he felt really - proud when he found himself
xt work with one of his own tools.
The_ winter passed away, and when spring.
came Holmes found himself the owner of six
dollars,• Worth of tools, all from money-that
would have been worse than' xasted had he
notbought them. But ',this thing operated
,in many NV ye s, for good . . Now that he had
the ability to fix up his buildings without
borrowing tools, he began 'to take'a degree
of pride in them lie, had never felt' before—
He, built racks and stands for his farming
utensils,' reset his window, fixed 'up his 'bee
hives and 'roofed them over, tightened his
barniand during the rainy days, he foUnd
himself with plentyto 'do. His childi en nev
er vear worthless- shoes now., nor do'. his
cows. break through the barn floor but he is a
happy, thriving, contended farmer. His
cows give as much.milk,: his bees make as
much honey, his tress yield as many and as
good apples, his chambers hold as much grain,
'and'he gets as mi - fch money for his wool as
.does his neighbor Thompson, and all this be
cause he - Stopped his grog and bought his
own tools, and left off depending upon his
neighbors for what he ouchft'a do for him
If we were to tell a number.of our friends
that they don't know Whai:r.t, - cliotne l ' is,
they would, grow. somewhat indignant—per
haps use hard 'words: And yet it may be
remarked that the number of persons who
know what a genuine
. home is, by experi
ence, is surprising few. One ,man in good
circumstances will tell us that he has a fine
house of his own, in 'which every comfort
and. convenience is provided. He has his
wife and children there also, and they. give
life to the place. Very true. But does he
prefer that home, thus furnished and thus
enlivened, to any other. place. in the world ?
Does he sigh when the hour for leaving comes
and smile when he is permitted to return ?
Does he love to sit by the cheerful lire and fon
dle the children entering into all their little dis
putes with a curious interest? Does he - take par
tiCtlar note of the bird in the cage, and the
.cat near the fire ?. If not, he .has no home,
in the dearest of that dearest of words. If
his mindis altogether absorbed in the dusty
ways of business—if he hurries from the
house in the,m owing, and is loth to return at
night—if-While he is at home, he continues
to think of journal and ledger, and, re
pulsed the advances of the prattling children,
he has no home; he only has a place where
he lodges and takes hiS Meals.
happy is he who knows and appreci
ates the full bliss of home ; whose heart is
warmed and humanized by his cheerful influ
ences, and who feels how superior in purity
of pleasure, are all its enjoyments to the
turmoil delights of outdoor life. Thrice hap
py is such a man. He has discovered the
only Paradise this world car now afford.. It
is only such a man who can have a deep and
sincere piety for the unfortunate creatures
who are homeless. He regards them as be
ing cut off fiorn the best influence of the
earth, and exposed to the action of all *the
darker ways of life He feels keenly for him
who has no fireside—no dear ones, to wel
come him with smiles, and prattle over the
history of the day—no tongue to sooth when
heavy cares have troubled the mind and reu
dered the heart sore; and the sympathy of
such a man isnot slow to overfloW in acts of
benevolence. A good home is the source of
the fountain of charity in the heart.
Our advice to those .who • have no homes
such as we have described above, is, to get
them as soon 'as" pOSsible. They can never
be contented - and substantial - citizens, nor

A Queer Place to Lay Eggs.
Dr. George A. 'Perking, when residing at
Cape Palmas, West „Africa, while sitting in
the house one day, had his attention attract
ed by a singular noise, and: upon searching
for the cause found v small blue' insect of the
wasp tribe, engaged in attempting to,get-a
fourpenny nail into the key hole of the door,
which he accomplished after a great deal Of
trouble. Dr. P. had.the curiosity, to take off
the lock to see what disposition he had Made
of the nail, - and found this, with several othz
ers; besides bits of % , :-oocl, &c., covering the
body of a gigantic cAroach. The mystery
however, was not unravelled till some time
afterward, when Dr. P. saw one of these
same insects emerge from a cocoon formed
in the bOdy of a cockroach of the same kind..
During his stay in Africa, he had often Seen
this little blue wasp pursuing one of these
cockroaches, (twenty times his own site,)
and e fter a severe struggle, the wasp, always
conquering, would put out both eyes Of the
cockroach. After this the latter would re
main in whatever place the wasp choSe to
leave him, would return after a Bhbrt ab
sence, and taking the cockroach by the head
led him into any secure place he had-select
ed, and there deposited an egg in his alldo
men, cover him as before described and leave
him: The egg would soon hatch, and the
larvw feed upon his entrails till it arrived at
the proper stage to undergo further Changes.
It then formed for itself a cocdon and remain
ed in it until it became a perfect insect.
