Tltey drive home the cows from the pasture.
Up through the lonjr, shady lane :
Where tho quail whistles loud In the whei..
They are yellow w ith rlpenlnar grain t
They find In the thick, waving grasses.
Where the scarlet-lipped strawberry grows t
They gather the earliest snowdrop,
And the first crimson buds of the rose.
They to?s the new lmy in the meadows.
They gather the e!dcr-l loom white,
They find where the du-.ky grapes purple,
la the soft-tinted October light.
They know where the apples hang ripest, .
Ai.d are sweeter than Italy wines ;
They know where the fruit clusters thickest.
On the long, thorny blackberry-vinos.
They gather the dolica'o soa-woeds,
And lui'ld tiny Ci.htles of sand ;
They pkk up (he beautiful sca-shrlls
Fairy barks that have diified to land
Those who toil bravely are strongest.
The humble and poor bi-come gr- at.
And from those brow n-handed children
Shall grow mighty rulers of State.

OUR NEW NEIGHBORS AT TONKA
POG. AJT TTNSOCIAIILE FAMILY, AND WHAT HAP
PEN KD TO IT.
When I saw the little house building
nn eighth of a mile beyond my own, on
lhe old Bay road, I wondered who were
to be the tenant"?. The modest structure
was set well back from the rod, amooy
the trees, as if the inmates were to care
noihiug whatever for a view of the stylish
eij u images which swept by during the
Summer season. For my part I like t;
see the passing, in town or country; but
each lias his own t.iute. The proprietor,
who seemed to be also the architect of the
new houSv.', superintended the various de
tails of the work with an assiduty that
gave me u high opinion ot his intelligence
and executive abioty, and I congratulated
myself on the prospect of having tome
very agreeable neigubors.
It was quite early in the Spring, if I re
member, w hen they moved iuto tiie cot
tage a newly ma.riod coiipie, evidently;
the wife very young, pretty, and with tii,j
air of a lady; the husuand tomewiiat old
er, but still in the lirst Hush of manhood.
It was understood in the village that they
came from Plliuiore; but no one knew
them personally, and they broughf no l jl
tei's ot iiitrouiii lion. (For obvious reasons
I rcfiain from mentioning names.) It

a ceremonious call on our neighbors as a

speak to the husband as un individual,
when I happened to encounter him by

to do so, when it occurred to my penetra

suspicion to the test, and one foicnoon,

The general routine of work was the
same as last year's institute except the
addition of a first grade class. We
made a general review of the various
common school branches, classifying
their divisions rtrd reciting by topics.
Instead of the instructor lecturing to
the class the teachers were requiird'
to do most of the taiking. They there-'
by acquired the strength that is gained j
from exertion. Instead t f being made
passive recipicais of a lecturer's ideas,
the teachers were encouraged to give
their er.vn with their reasons therefor.'
No one was expected lo accept a state-'
ment as true that he did not thorough- !
ly understand. The asking of qucs
tions and the interposition of objee-;
tions by members of the class, were!
cordially welcomed by the instructors.
Instead of teaching by authority of in-;

by illustration and demonstration, di-j

Why Our Ma nuf.iet tires arc Crowding:
A writer in lhe London Times, on the
cotton trade of England and America,
calls tho attention ot the English to the
fin t that "the rivalry of American inanu
fact tires is a phenomenon" of such magni
tU'le that it deserves the most anxious iu
ve.-iigation. lie says:
"America h;.s more than one-fourth tho
number of spindles which we posets;she
is able to find employment for these, and
he is constantly adding to their number,
ller ccnsuiiipii'.n of cotton is equal to one
half of ours. To-day she ii able to sup
ply uhno.-t the whole of her own wants;-t-ho
meets us in tho market of South
America ami the East nay, her cloths
are to be found in all our large towns,
competing fairly w ith our own. A strong
popular bent intent supports this aggressive
movement, and an export trade iu manu
factured goods lias become in America au
object of national desire. Journals spec
ially devoted to this trade have sprung up,
and appear to llourish. Government h;u
lent it aid by directing all its consular
ageats to collect inf'rin-.uiou lilted to be
8' rviceable to manufacturers. A rivalry
which has already achieved so much aiI
alms at so much more cannot be regarded
otherwise than as mot formidable."
In assigning the causes of this formida
ble phenomenon, the writer places first
tho rapid progress the Americans have
made in lhe improvement of their pro
cesses of manufacture, and he states the
following facts :
