There are times when it seems that bees sre determined to forsake their hives after having hived, and go to the woods. When they are so inclined it is best to give them a flame of brood from some hive; then they are not apt to leave, and will not once in a thousand times—and it is a much better plan than to clip their wings, as they then have to be watched in swarming time, or yon will loose your queen. There arc several causes why bees leave their hive. The greatest of them all is, that when they are hived, and a large swarm, and the hive a"n ordinary one, there is so much heat that they caunot stay in and work their waa, and they are obliged to leave. Many, aa soon as their bee* sre in the hive, set it down where no air can strike it. The hive shaald be well venti lated, and let the bees puss in and out freely, and the trouble is over. There are a few instances where bees look np a home before swarming, but they are rare. When a swarm has left the parent hive and is clustered on a tree or else where, they have no doubt sent out ex plorers to find a home in some hollow tree. The swarm is very apt to stay on the same treo where they settled, if it is a good cool shady place; if nut, they will soon leave for another tree—perhaps at a dis tance. They fiy until they become weary, when they alight; if they don't succeed In finding u home, they again take flight for the west, or in a westerly direction, is is their custom. They have been known to repeat their flight seven! times before making a final location. This is the way they have extended so rapidly to the far west. Bees should not be allowed to bang on the tree any length of time. Hive them at once, and place where yon wish them to stand fur the season. If yon wish them to stay, see that they have plenty of air, or they will he apt, in aa unexpected time to you, to take np their line of march to ward the west. Is it at all surprising to see (be great numbers that have spread over the far vest, when we take into coo sidentiou the vast numbers that hare been multiplying for yean? They left the moth worm behind. Their principal ene mies were the red man and wild beasts of the forests. They went in advance of civ ilisation. Prolific Corn. The April mnnber of the American Farmer, gives an account of a very prolific corn raised on the farm of Wm. Porcher Miles, Nelson co. Va. It is called Hud son's Improved Dooble-Eared Corn. This corn, which Mr. Ed. W. Hudson has been carefully cultivating and improv ing for several yean, produced last year on some very rich bottom I .od on the Oak Ridge estate, in Nelson county, Va., on the Orange, Alexandria and Manassas Railroad, the enormous yield of 170 bash els per acre ! It was 28 barrels to the acre, and it shelled oat six bushels and three quarts to the barrel Most of the stalks had two ears, many three, some four, and one sulk had seven ears upon it—this stalk was exhibited at the Lynchburg fair, where the corn took a premium—and has been seen with admiration and astonishment by hnodreda of persons. Affidavits to the above facto have been made by Mr. Hudson and sons—all of them hard-working and industrious farm ers, estimable and reliable men. They are tenants upon the Oak Ridge estate. The editors of the Farmer says:—Desir ous of seeing this remarkably productive variety of corn widely disseminated, for test in a variety of situations, we have obtained from Mr. Hudson a limited sup ply of it, and i ciU eend to each mkeeriber of the American Farmer, who will forward as a stamp to prepay return postage, a entail pocket of it free. This offer, of course, includes subscribers coming in after this dote as well aa those whose names are MW on oar books. In writing give us your name, port offiee, county and State plainly written. Bo sot suppose because yon are a subscriber we know all these, and do not forgot to enclose a stamp which is a condition of this offer. Elder leave* strewed among grain when it is pnt in the bin, will preserve it from 1 the ravages of the weevil. The same leaves scattered over cabbages, cucumbers, j aouasbes and other ntante will shield them 1 S' WVJWUOHW, sous* vwva jnisrir f a “ IKLrved in lbs same way. ? \ Success in Farming Success is this punait depends largely P* tawcutoand mental activity of the .represeatativM'nf C* adhl. class of the world’s workers. * The time was when the rich, fresh soil of the older states, backed by the grand old forests them selves, yielded an abundant harvest by fone of muscular effort on the pert of the husbandman, in'connection with favorable Isothermal and hygrometrical conditions, fo-day, over a vaat area, in the aggregate sS large as the largest of the Eastern | States, the surface soil, which has been harassed beyond endurance—yield* scarce enough to entitle the product to the name of a crop. Treading in the footsteps of iseir fathers, and farming in the time honored way of their grandfathers before them, the surface soil has become almost -Ihaunted of many essential elements of plant food. As may be inferred, this will be found to he the cose the most frequent ly in thooe communities where the least number of agricultural books and papers are read. As a rule, the successful farmer is the reading oae—for it ia only this way that be can keep himself sufficiently posted to keep up with the times, or to keep i abreast of the spirit of the age in which we live. An agricultural community without papers and hooka adapted to their varied interests, is like a ship st sea without , compass or redder. We find that oar reading community nuke more money, have better homes, richer lands, have at tained a better social condition and are better off in every conceivable wav, than those who do not read. Books and pa pers beget a spirit of progress. They are , the leaven which infuses life, into every farming community. They go before snd lead the way to farmers' clubs and fair associations. The farmers of to-day, as well as the coming one. should be educated in agricultural science, and then reduce 1 his knowledge to practice. It bts so long ' been customary to associate mental activity ■ with phvsical inactivity," that we are apt to 1 think that this must necessarily always be 8 so. I Our young men still look with longing 1 eyes towards our cities ; first because their r country homes are, in by far too many I Instances, as unattractive as it is possible r to make them ; secondly, because of a misunderstanding of the real difficulties l ' which are incident to a successful career ’ In our principal cities. This may continne ’ to be so for a long time, yet it is to be :i hoped that farmers and their families will 1 set about a thorough reform in making 0 their homes more pleasant and attractive; • by encouraging reading, the cultivation of " fruits and flowers, music snd sociability, ' tree planting for ornament and utility—in * fact, work a complete reform in what by far too many farmers consider unimportant ‘ and trivial matters, which nevertheless, 8 have a powerful influence in shaping the 1 future career of their children. In order to make farming a success, not ’ only muscle, hut brain and heart, must - each take part. Education in the line of 8 some chosen pursuit is now in order. 1 Happily form work now requires a greater ' range of mechanical ability than formerly, ' and we have reason to believe that many • other faculties which have heretofore 1 seemed out of place on the form, will soon r be called into requisition in order to enable 8 the farmer to achieve a foil measure of 1 success. Successful forming, sa we un -8 deretond it, implies not only constant f pecuniary gain, but constant increase in r the acquisition and introduction into our system of farming, of newer snd better ideas ' than we formerly possessed, coupled with an * increased desire for a special knowledge of 1 our pursuit and a higher perception of our ’ social relations to each other, and of our ’ true standing aa representatives of the 8 leading occupation of mankind. —Rural " World. > . I Sugar Beet*. No toot is more certain of a crop, and 1 none yields more food than these. They 3 are excellent keepers, nutritions, and great promoters of the flow of milk in cows and ewes. The seed should be sown as early aa practicable, in drills tdo to two and a half feet apart. About four pounds of seed will be sufficient for an acre, and it will germinate quicker if put ia boiling water before sowing, and afterwards rolled ' in plaster to dry. They are best sown by meana of one of the numerous seed drills now to be found at every implement store. The seed should be sown thick to save the necessity and trouble of transplanting to fill any vacancies, and afterwards thinned 1 so that the beet* may stand about Bto 10 inches apart. To grow the crop the land must be deep, rich and well cultivated. The soli best adapted to them ia a good strung loam, well manured and well drained. The manure beat suited to this crop is well rotted stable manure or compost, and there is no danger of patting too much an the laud. 1 The ground must be kept light and well 8 and deeply stirred. It ia Mid that what -1 ever the amount of the crop on the Ist of ' September, the yield at harvest will be just double that amount, and this bung ' the ease, it is of importance to push the crop forward that at the date named it may be as promising ms poMible. r ... Cora and Pork. From carefully conducted experiments 1 by different parties, it ia ascertained that one bushel of corn will make a little over 1 ten aud a half pounds of pork—groes. Taking this result as a basis, the following deductions are made which farmers would do well to lay by for convenient reference —that: When com sells for twelve and a half cents per bushel, pork costa one a half cents per pound. When con costs twenty-five cents per bushels, pork coats three per pound. When corn sells for thirty-three cents per bushel, pork coats four cento per pound. The following statement shows what the farmer realties on com when sold in the form of pork : When pork sella for three Beats per pound, it brings twenty-five cento per bashel in corn. When park sells for four cento per pound, it brings thirty-three cento per { bushel is earn. When pork* sells for five cents pm pound, it brings forty-five cento per bushel in corn ' I Wit uni Muwot.

A ministerial brother who married rather sooner after the death of his wife than some of the sisters thought proper and | becoming, excused himself us follows: — “My dear brethren aud sisters, my grief was greater than I could bear. I turned | every way fur peace and comfort, but none I ’ came. I searched the Scripture from ! (jiuiseo to Kiverlatiuns. and found plenty | of promises to the widder, but nary a one , to the widderar. And so I took it that the good Lord didn't waste sympathy on a man when it was in his power to comfort 1 | himself; and. having a first rate chanee to i marry in the Lord, I did so, and would do the same thing again. Besides, my I brethren, I considered that poor Patsey was just as dead as she would ever be." i s . ! A pious negro woman was once caught r by her master stealing a goose, and the ’ next Sunday she partook of the communion, I 3 after which her master accosted her us follows: ’ “Why. Hannah. 1 saw you to day at the communion table.” “Yes, thank de Lord, Massa. I waa lowed to be dar wid de rest oh his family. | ( “But. Hannah. 1 was surprised to sec i r you there," he mid, “How about that j ( goose?"—She looked a little surprised, as ; if she did nut understand the question, j but, ratching the meaning, exclaimed: I “Why, eah, do you link lee agoin' to let j an ole goose stand atween me an' my j. maker?” ■ ♦- j The bonnet of the period is a thing 1 fearfully and wonderfully made; no one can look at it without recalling Petruchiu's scornful description: Why, this was moulded on a porringer, ( A velvet dish I Why, 'tia a cockle or a walnut shell, A knack, a toy, a trick a baby's cap! Away with it I Come, let me have a bigger! ; But the fair wearers, one and all. reply with Katharine: I’ll have no bigger; this doth lit the time, ’ And gentlewomen wear such caps as these ; and who shall dare to dispute their taste ? ' It is, however, pleasant to observe that, in j ' the matter of ornamentation, delicacy und ' daintiness are taking the place of the 100 j prommceet modes of past seasons. 1 A nun whom Dr. Chalmers engaged to 1 manage a disorderly Sunday School, kept r bis eyes open during prayer, and when one 1 threat a pen into another he marched up 1 the aisle, still praying, and cuffed that boy s ears, and went back again, still pray- j ’ iug. After that he was master of the r situation for the buys thought that a man ' who could watch and prey like that could 1 not be pul down. Th* Effect.—“ Humph!" said an Englishman to a Scotchman, as they were I walking over the fields, “ oats are all very ' well in their way; but in England we feed t I them to our bones, while here they are I food for men.” ' “ Ay, ay!" said the Scotchman, “an ” 1 just see what fine horses there are in r England, and what fine men we have in ’ Scotland!” I “Pretty bad under foot, to-day," said ' one citixen to another. “Yes. but it pro i mises to be fine over head by and by," re . spondid the other. "Perhaps so," said ' the firet, “but everybody is not going that i way.” 1 I “Cato, hab you read de papers lately ?" “What you mean, nigga? “I ax you in - dia ticklsy manner, kase I sec dey I adwerttse for a gemman ob color to work ; on a form." Go way. I is in de politic i line now nigga.” , The last fashionable kink ia pop-rorn parties. It ia claimed that they nut only keep young men from another kind of I corned parties, but they are very sugges tive of a question they ought to pop. r . Professor Agassis says that "trilobitcs ; are not more closely related to the phyllo i pods than to any other entomostrac'ue or , to the isopod." Of course not. If a man named William marry, why is he pretty certain to be henpecked ? 80, , cause his wife will always have a Will of her own. “What it the beat butter?” exclaimed an orator at a meeting of dairymen. “An old ram !” responded a sheep-raiser. Our school-boy remarks that when his . teacher undertakes to show him what it what, ho only finds out which is switch. Whom the gods would destroy they firet make mad. Yes, and when some men would dye, they first get madder. Sea captains should be good nalured ; it . would uot be Mfe to have a cau't-anchor ue man to command m ship. A lady calls the little memoranda her butcher sends in with the meat, “pencil ing* by the weigh.” , “Well, wife, yon can’t eay 1 ever con tracted bod habits.” “No, air; you generally 1 expand them.” j Be temperate in diet.
