Or with their snowy lengths
And rosy tips,
Undecked with, gems or. gold.
When her light work she plies
Creating mimic flowers,
Or draviing the fair thread
Through folds of snowy lawn.
How beautifol it is
To see my lady's hands;
Often I, sitting, watch
Their gliding to and fro,
Those lovely birds of snow.
Sometimes the evening shades
Draw around us as we taik,
Sometimes the tired sun,
Drooping foivards the West,
Makes all the fields of heaven
With autumn's colors glow ;
Sometimes the sailing croon,
Unclouded and serene,
Rises between the misty woods
That crown the distant hills;
Then most I love to sit
And watch inilidy's hands
Blush with the sunset's rage,
Or whiten in the moon,
Or. lucid in the amber evening air,
Sometimes she paces slowly
Among the garden flowers;
Above her the trees tremble,
And lean their leafage down,
So much they love to see her;
The flowers, white and read,
Open their fragrant eyes,
Gladder to hear her coming
Than bird's singing,
Or bee's humnning.'
She, atologni,.clad in grace,-
Gathers then one by one,
Lily and crimson rose,
With sprigs of tender green,
And holds themin her hands.
Nothing can sweeter be
Than, lying on the lawn,
To see tbose gracetWiands
Drop all their odorohs load
UpOn her snowy lap,
And then, with magic skill
And rosy fingers fine,
To watch her intertwine
Some wreath, not all unfitting
How beautiful it is
To see my lady's hands;
In moonlight sorrow ful,
Or sunlight fine,
Busied with graceful toil,
Or folded in repose, '
How beautiful it is
To see my lady's hands
A GOOD. DIALOGUE.
"The Potatoes, they ; are small,
Over there, over there."—Old Song
.111 r. Smith—How is it, neighbor Jones,
tha't your potatoes-are so large and fine,
while just over the fence, on similar soil,
mine are as small as pullets' eggs r and
precious few at that ?
Mr. Jonesl maimed this field with
Smith—'Psb the Cincin
nati hog-killers couldn't supply brains
enough for this ten-acre field.
Mr. Jones—l used human brains, of
which there are , plenty.
Air. Smith-,-Nonsense—N o w don't
make fuu of me because Pm unlucky; and
Providence has sent you a good crop:
Mr. Jones —Providence helps . those
who help themselves. I used my own
brains on this field.
Mr. Smith,So did I mine, and they
are as good as anybody's.
Mr. Jones—Al4 I There's the trouble.
Yoli knew it ill yourself I don't, and
so I Sett all the outside help•l.can. I've
been coilledting, other men's brains for
my land for twenty years; and you See .
One result in this crop.
Mr. Smith—Yes, I see the result, but
I don't tinderstand it.
Mr. Jones—Well, when we began here
20 years ago. I thought myself a good
farmer, but I believed others had good
ideas, too, and I made it my business to
get at their thoughts ; some. I found in
agricultural books and, papers; others I
picket up at ,the County Fairs, by asking
.the .big things were raised, and often.
I've got a good hint from a neighbor.
Mr. Smith—l've always been down on
this !`book farming," but your crops stag
ger me, they're real knock down argu
ments; I'm sick of the poor show I get
for all my work, and am desperate enough
to try anything , for improvement.
Mr. Jones—l'll give you my experi
ence ; it may aid you.. About nineteen
years ago I heard that some men who
had been brought up on, farms had °bib
bed together, and one of them was going
to publish a paper, which should consist
mainly of accounts of how .different .far-
mers cultivated various crops, and such
like matters. I sent for the paper 'and
have doue so every year since, and now
1 have nineteen large .volumes, every
page of which I have read, a little at a
time, and•the whole has not cost the pro
duce of a single acre. Why lam aston
ished when I think over the ten thou
sand thoughtd,' and hints,- and sugges
tions I have thus gathered. What.a
blank would be left in my head, if these
thoughts were taken away.
Mr. Smith—But does the practice of
farmers on other kinds of soil and with a
different climate, suit your wants ?
Mr. Jones—Why no, not exactly, per
haps. But then, every thought I get
from another, starts a new.thought in my
own mind, and thus I am constantly im-,
proving my own , skill and practice. You
see, I . get all the brains I can from other
men's heads, and compost them well in
my own head with a mixture of common
sense, and then make the application to
my fields. In that way, I have manured
this crop of potatoes with plenty of
brains. The editor called here last week
on his Western tour among farmers, and
seeing my good crops, he ask me to write
out just.how I have treatedthis field for
years past, and I promised to do it as
soon as my , crops are gathered. He will
probably print it, as he constantly prints
all such practical matters, and .perhaps
a hundred thousand persons will read it ;
and though nobody else may do just as I
do, many will get a new hint, and im
prove upon it. Youu may read it if yOu
Mr: Smith—l would like to borrow
Mr. Jones—Better take it yourself, for
then you will be more likely to . read it.
You will find hundreds of plain talks
about various kinds of crops, during .a
single year. Qne hint gave five bushels

besides, a geod deal about Women's

than ten times the:few pounds of,birtter
it costs to pay for the paper. Then there
is also a department for the young fo

children—not mere trashy stuff such as
is too often printed for them, but.infor
mation-that will have a good influence
on them. I would sell a 'dozen bushels
of wheat to have my young, people get
the good reading in that paper, but the
average _price of one bushel will pay for
it a year.. My John says he can pay for
it easy - with the 'eggs from two'.or three

had not a foot of land I should still want
it for my wife and children.
Mr. Smith—Does the editor know any
thing about farming
• Mr. Jones—The editorwho owns and
publishes the paper was buOught up on a
farm, where he learned,to work. He has
studied, all the books on:fartaing, and.
experimented for years iothe laboratory
arid has besides, traveled ail over the
country to see whit was doing. Then he
has several associates— , Farmers, Gard
nerd, ani Housekeepers, who know what
they vitate..ationt, aid among. them all
they do gather up a wonderful lot of in
formation eve* year. Tha/ language,
too, is so plain, so like 'talking with you,
that I enjoy reading it. Then, too, eve
ry paper has ettgraiings,which dhow one
exactly how animals and plants; and im
plements, and household furnittire look'
much better than words could describe
them. Among these are plans of build
ings, that help one to , plan others; and
also many very fine large pictures, whic
are tvorthinere than the cost of a3vhole
Smith—l suppose those engra
vings and doseriptions are partly to help
the editor sell implements or fertilizers.
Mr. Jones—Not at all. The , editor
keeps nothing orthe sort to sell,*so that
he may be perfectly free to praise or
condemn anything, according as it may
be valuable or worthless to his readers,
You would laugh to 'see hosv lie comes
down on poor inventions, patent man
ures, and all kinds of humbugs.
Mr. Smith—ls the paPer adapted to
our part of the country-2
Mr. Jones—Exactly. Soils and crops
end climates differ, but the general prin
ciples of cultivation are the same every
where, and here is the benefit: of a paper
published forthe whole country. Every ,
reader gets new ideas by learning what
is done somewhere else ; and further, I.
find that the paper has letters from every
part of the country,.and one or more as
sociate editors in different sections, so
that we get -information from- many re
gions and our own too. One thing-I
must mention particularly. The editor
is constantly warning his readers against
humbugs, telling how sharpers take • the
advantage of people. Why, I was just
going to send a dollar for an article ad:
vertised in glowing colors, when I found
it shown up as a humbug in this paper.
But I can not stop to talk more now—l
have such a lot of potatoes to•harvest. ,
Mr. Smith--I wish /had, I must try
that papei%a year, and ,
see what there is
in it. I can manage to save two, cents a
Mr. Tones—Never lear.—H you don't
find it pays, I'll buy your copies at cost,

Smith-I-What did you 'say the p a
per was called ?
Mr. Tones—The. American Agricultur

The editor, though on.Q of eur,eouritiy,
farmers, and living in the country, finds
he can publish it cheaper 'there; where
printing and paper, .and mailing facili
are all convenient.
Mr. Smith—How shall I get if ?

of the victims of the revoltition, the
