Why do Schools accomplish so
It is a common complaint that our
schools are inefficient, that scholars seem
,. , , , ;. i
to accompiisn out little, comparatively,
with all the boasted improvements of mod-
cm times. This is doubtless often true:
we nave no wisu 10 ueny n. xns equai-

lv true that there arc reason for the fact.
Children do not act without motives
they will not study without inducements
to mental effort yet they cannot be ex-
pected fully to appreciate the value of
knowledge, or to improve their time be-
oause they feel the importance and ncces-
itj- of so doing. Other motives than those
which impel the adult to seek information

them. Among these motives, one of the I

Friend Brown : Therc are some far-
mers that tell us how to save manure, and
how to farm and often we-may learn a
good, lesson from it ; but while we are sa- j
ving manure and trying to raise good ,
crops, do not Jet us forget to try to keep
our farms free from noxious weeds. The
first and most to be dreaded is the moc
mullin, a new-comer in our neighborhood,
which increases very fast. I never saw
any before the year 1849. I have been
trying to clear my farm of them ever
since, by pulling them up ; but they still
increase, and I expect will, unless my
neighbors will try to keep their farms
clear of them; for I have no doubt but the
birds carry the seed for miles and drop
them, and thus they are scattered far and
wide. The mocmullin has a deep green
leaf; and if not cut or broken, grows with
a single stalk ; but if cut will shoot up
the stem, with a pod like a nightshade
berry, and very hard. I have been par
ticular in describing it, as I said it was a
us, and may not be
known in general;' I was surprised to
see so many of the above mentioned weeds
on the farms between Neshaniiny Toll'
Bridge and Philadelphia the nearer
the city the thicker they are?" The Can
ada thistle is another had pest. By all
means keep it down. I have for several
years been trying to free my farm from

At last we succeeded in opening it, and we
descended rapidly to an altitude of 13,

ted to such extreme height grows vivid
and warm, as the body becomes dull and
chilled. For us no reality, no limits, were
existing. The dreams of Bernardine and
St. Pierre were realised ; universal peace
seemed to be on earth, and the whole
globe were United States. But a strong
condensation of the gas brought us back
to the reality of terrestial objects, and
we descended to the ground.

The Mail and Hie Vine.
In one of the early years of the world,
man began to plant a vine, and Satan saw
it, and drew near.
?Whatplantestthou, son of the earth?'-'
said the prince of demons.
" A vine," replied the man.
i: Oh, its fruit is pleasant to look at,
and delicious to taste; from it is produced
a liquid which fills the heart with joy."
"Well, since wine makes glad the heart
of man, I will help thee plant this tree."
So saying the demon brought a lamb
and slew it, then a lion, then, an ape, and
last of all a pig, killed each in succession,
and moistend the roots of the tree with
Thence it has happened ever since,
that when a man drinks a small portion
of wine he becomes gentle and caressing
as a lamb; after a little more, strong and
bold as a lion ; when he takes still more
he resembles an ape iu his mischievous
actions, but when he has swallowed the
liquid to excess, he is like a hog wallow
ing in the mire.

Ludicrous blunders will occasionally
occur in cases where ignorant persons at
tempt the use of language about which
they know nothing. The following is a
case in point :

Pittsburg to Cincinnati, two queer speci
mens of the female sex came on board of

had never mixed to any great extent, and
was therefore in blissful ignorance as to
any of the rules which govern more re
fined persons. Her language, too, wa3
only such as she beard among her rustic as
sociates. Mary was aware of this fact, and
had therefore cautioned her to observe how
she (Mary) acted, and to govern herself
accordingly. Jane promised implicit o
bedience. Shortly after, while seated at
the dinner table, the waiter asked Mary
what part of the fowl she would have. She
informed him, in a very polite mannerf
that it was 'perfectly immaterial.'
