Everybody wants to be heard first, and this is jnst what fills the world with non- Evecybudy wants to talk, few want to think, and nobody wants to listen. The greatest talkers among the feather ed folks are the magpie and the guinea hen, and neither of them are of much ac count. If a man in not sure he is right the best curd he can play is a blank one. I have known many a man to beat in an argument by just nodding his bead once in a while and simply saying, jn*t to. just It takes a great many blows to drive in a nail, but one will clinch it. Some men talk just as a French pony trots, all day long in a half bushel measure. Silence never makes any blunders, and always gats os much credit as is due it, and ofttimes more. When I see a man listening to me close I always say to myself, “look out. Josh, that fellow is taking your measure.” I have heard men argue a point two hours and a half, and not get any further from where they started than a mule in a bark mill; they did a good deal of going round and round. I hare set on juries and had lawyen talk the law, facts and evidence of the case all out of me, besides starting the tape on my boots. I have been to church hungry for some gospel and come home so full of it that I couldn’t draw a long breath without start inga button. Brevity and silence are the two great cards, and next to saving nothing, saying a little is the strength of the game. One thing is certain, it is only the great thinkers who can afford to be brief, and there have been but few volumes yet pub lished which could not be cut down two thirds, and many of them could be cut clean back to the title page withou hurt ing them. ■ It is hard to find a man of good sense who can look back upon any occasion and wish he had said some more, but it is easy to find many who wish they had said | leas. A thing said is hard to recall, but unsaid it can be spoken any time. Brevity is the child of silence, hnd is a great credit to the old man. Cheer Him. "* A fireman waa once striving to save a person in danger of perishing in a burn ing house, but the flames leaped out of the windows and bent him back. “He'll nev er do it!” cried one “He'll have to come down 1 “Cheer him!" shouted another, and in a moment three stirring hurrahs went np from the crowd. It nerved the man's srni and strengthened his spirit. It quickened his movements, and in an other minute he bore the child down in safety to its mother's arms. What a power ia in that cheering! So it often is with those who are ready to give out by the way. They would have per ished hut for some stirring word of cheer. Uod pot it in the heart of some one to speak to them. Have you ever cheered a desponding heart thus? Or lave you let the opportunity slip by with the feel ing: “Am Imy brother's keeper?” We are all, in a sense, our brother’s keeper. Is there a poor, down-hearted man in your community whom sickness and misfortune have reduced ? Don’t give him the cold shoulder, os is the world's custom when a person is unfortunate. Cheer him. and sec if it will not infuse new life into his heart. Ho more: lend a helping hand. What weald you have done that day Tur wheel got stock in a rut, if a neigh bor bad not happened along who could tend yon a helping hand for five minutes ? It was very little for him to do, but it was worth a great den! to yon. A little after yon were rolling along prosperously, as if nothing hail happened. Jnst so a little cheer and a little help often pnt a neigh nor no the mod again. Surely it were worse than elrariish to refuse to give what e such a litUe effort, yet it U worth T* attended the State Fair at Rochester, Now York, and among other*, EUwangcr & Ban; exhibited a largo variety of fruit. I waa ao pleaded with the Pluius, that I selected from their collection one doieu tree*, one of each variety. The tree* were planted and seemed to be thrift; growers; but up to the fitll of 1872 I had not taken one bushel of fruit from the dosen trees. %as&s&AsaL i & sweet water, or corn cobs soaked in sweet water, in the trees it would prevent the insects from destroying the fruit. I or dered my colored man to coh and can all of the plum trees, and he did it well, as ever; tree had several cobs as well as cans. The result was, ever; tree was load ed with plums—from one to two bushels upon each tree. I had no faith at the time in such a simple remedy, and made this trial merely from curiosity. Above you have results, or in other words, every one of the twelve trees were loaded down with nice, ripe plums. Bucks. There are no kinds of domestic poultry more easily kept than ducks. Their appe tite is such that almost anything which is naturally thrown to the pigs is acceptable, and on this account many object to them, saying “they eat too much." It is no doubt true that more food is required to rear young ducks than chicks, but this is overbalanced by their quick maturity, after which no more food is required for docks than hens. Disease seldom finds its way into the duck yard, unless caused by Sducklimts too much hard or un food. Keep the young ducks from water, save enough to drink, until about two weeks old, then let them have full range. Ducks can be successfully bred in dry yards, with only a pan of water; but no farmer having a pond or stream of water convenient for ducks should do without them, for in such cases very little food is required save what can bo found by them in and around such places. At early dawn they may be seen very active in “snatching up" the worms that find their way to the surface of the ground in pastures, thereby benefiting rather than injuring the soil.— Farmer ami Artisan. Cost or Fencing.—According to the Report of the Deportment of Agriculture, it appears that for each dollar invested in stock one is invested in fence to keep that stock within bounds, and that the amount expended in fence exceeds the national debt, and that one hundred million dollars are annually expended in their repairs. Wc cannot vouch for the correctness of the items, but take them from the report. Many of our farmers keep np more fenc ing than is needed for the land enclosed. Of all practicable forms that of a square will enclose the greatest area of land with the least- fence, and ns we increase the length and decrease the breadth, wc in crease the proportion of fence to the area enclosed. If strict economy cannot be observed, we should come as near it as possible. Farmers Comforts.—The Artisan ' says:—We haxard the assertion that no class of equal average means live so well as American farmers. One of these pos sessing a farm and buildings, worth, say, ten thousand dollars, will gather about him and enjoy more real comfort than could be obtained from the income of a hundred thousand dollars in New York He may live in a more commodious dwelling than a metropolitan citixcn having ten thousand dollars annual income. He may havo his carriage and horses. His table may be supplied with everything fresh in its sea son. His labor is less wearing than the toil of counting rooms and offices, and he has more leisure, more health, more con tentment. What Anne Ari ndel is Doing.— We learn trom the Annapolis Ornette that a farmer on the north of the Severn, in that county, has planted this season. 175,- 000 hills of watermelons and 100,000 hills of cantaloupes, on which he has used 18,- 000 worth of stable manure. With the most unfavorable season, short of total destruction, he must raise a million of melons and about the same amount of cantaloupes. The Gazette adds: As our melons are famous for thcirexcellenccand always command a good price, our enter prising fanner may reasonably calculate on harvesting a heavy crop of greenbacks, and, at the same time, set an example to his neighbors that must stimulate them to greater exertion in future years. The CfEcuno.—Roger H. Kirk of Pleasant Grove, Lancaster county, one of our most observant farmers, who has tried the experiment, says that the present time, while the plum trees are in blossom, is the proper season to apply fish oil to kill cur culio, the great enemy of the plum About a pint poured around the roots of each tree is sufficient. Mr. Kirk, by this prac tice has succeeded in raising abundant crops of this fine fruit. Let all who have plum trees try this experiment at once.— Or/ord Freer. To Pack Grapes.-—A California grape grower, it is said, keeps his grapes any desirable length of time by packing theni. when perfectly free from external moisture, in dry saw-dust, and then burying them in the ground, under a shed. He uses nail casks for packing, because they are easily and cheaply procured, but any cask or box would serve the same purpose. The saw-dust must be perfectly dried, either in the sun or in ao oven, and the place where the packages are buried must be secured against the possibility of any water setting around them. Longevity or First (,'ai.ves.—A farmer writes us that he has heard “that the first calf of a heifer seldom lives to be more than three or four years old. Is this so? I would like very ranch to know. I have had one or two die that were about that age. They were calves of young heifers." In reply, we may say that we have had first calves reach the age of twenty years, and know both bulls and cows, now, that were first calves, that are ten to fifteen years of age. Farmers in the vicinity of Smyrna, Del,, claim that the peach crop is nearly or quite ruined by the frosts of the past’ two weeks. Some growers say that the yield will be as large as they wish, while others say that they will have no crop at all. The injury varies in different localities. The largest wheat grower in the West always sells his crop as soon after it is thrashed as possible, and he says that this is the best plan for fanners one year with another. As to prices he thinks they will i be higher than they were last year. An lowa farmer, Mr. George Wells, of Grnudy county, raised, last year, Ml,ooo bushels of wheal; 65,000 bushels of corn; | and 12.000 of hurley. At Topeka, Kansas, com is worth twen- A. H.
