Do Farmers Wisely Choose Occupa
tions for Their Sons?
At a late meeting of the Syracuse (X.
Y.) Farmers' Club Mr. Edwards said:
"A farmer has two sons; one has strong
physical development and a natural
taste for farming; to use the hoe and
follow tho plow day after day is both
congenial to h;s feelings and his health ;
his mind rests in quiet satisfaction as he
looks out upon his father's broad acres,
and views with manly pride the grow
ing flocks and fattening herd, and esti
mates in dollars and cents their value.
The other son lacks the physical strength
of his brother, but has fine, sensitive
nerves, and a deep thirst for scientific
or legal knowledge. He jroes to th
fields with his brother,"with heavy tread
because it is his duty to go, but his
thoughts aro among tlie planets, trying
to calculate their distances from the
earth, and the influence they have upon
the seasons. Such a boy can never
make a successful farmer, no more than
the other can make a successful astron
omer. Parents should at least be as
wise in looking after the fitness of their
boys for their chosen business,-as they
would in training their colts. But how
is it? A farmer goes out to ex
amine his young horses: there is
four-year-old "Dick," large, strong,
close jointed, and mild-tempered, slow
and steady, a good horse for the team.
There is young Flora, smaller, long
jointed, with deer-like limbs, and high
temper, can be made to trot in 2.20,
worth $5,000. 3?o farmer will ever
make the mistake, and put Dick in train
ing for the race-course and send Flora
to haul stone. Now, his boys are just
as unlike as his colts and need as differ
ent training. The Judge naturally
wants his sons to become lawyers, too,
the minister, merchant, mechanic and
farmer too often insist that their boys
follow the inclination of the parent
rainer man taeir own. it is a fact that
most of the failures result from not put
ting the right man in the right place.
Had Franklin always been kept at the

Under the date of June 21, in that odd
rcpertwry of out-of-the-way learning.
"Chambers's Book of Days," we find
some curious fact concerning burials in
unconsecratcii ground. As the book is
hot In the hands of every one, We can
hot do better than present our readers
with a brief summary ! Some of the
principal ces recorded.
The first is that of a " modest looking
altar tomb," built of bricks, and about
two feet and a half high, standing on
the dreariest spot of a lonely footpath
that leads acros? the fields frbjai a small
Hertfordshire village, called Flaunden,
b another village name n given. A
large stone slab ct5 forth that this tomb
is sacred lo the memory of one Mr.
William Liberty, who was Imrit'' hare
A, D. 1777, by hi own wesirc, and to
whoso n?Hit!hS were added those of his
widow, Mrs. Alice Liberty, deceased,
thirty-two rears later namclv. 1809.
" About a mile from Great Missenden, a
large Buckinghamshire village, stands .1
queer looking building a sort qf dwarf
pyramid which is locally called apt.
Backhobse's Tomb."' It w built of flint,
slrenglhchcU with bricks; it is about
eleven feet square at the base; the walls

but instead of termitjalilig in a point,
a flat !all-slbhe, alxmt three feet
SqTittre, forms the summit." U js cov

windows W the north and south. It
was tile tomb of a certain Mr. Back
house, who built it during his lifetime.
"'I'll have nothing to do,' said he,

jne there, in my own wood on the hill,
and my sword with me, and I'll defy all
tho evil spirits In existence to injure
me I' He died at the age of 80, on the
21slof June, 1800, and was buried, or
rather deposited, In the queer sepuleher
he himself had erected. His sword was
placed in the coffin with him, and the
coffin reared upright withjn a niche or
recess in the. western wall, which was
then jhiilt up" in front, so that he was in

son, Lieut.-Gen. Backhouse, took the
body from the mausoleum, and had it
buried in the church-yard at Great Mis-
rsenden, along with otherdccetit Christian
Sir James Tillie, who died at his
place, Pentilly Castle, Cornwall, was
,bttried by his Own wish under a tower
or sulhiticr-hou!e, where he had passed
many joyous hours with his friends.
" A Baronet of some military fame, who
died in a midland county, 1823," ordered
that his body should be covered with a
sere-cloth, and burled without a
coffin In a particular place in the
park, his grave to be sown with line
acorns, from which the most promis
ing plant Was to be selected so
"that after my death my bod' ma not
bo entirely useless, but may serve to
fear a good English oak." He left a
small legacy to his gardener to "see
that the plant is well watered, and kept
free from weeds." His friends buried
him in the churchyard Instead of the
park ; but the aCorns were sowti as he
desired, and oh his grave now stands a
lino oak tree. Baskervillc, the famous
printer, is said to have been buried by his
own desire under a windmill near his
garden. He died in 1775. Samuel
Johnson, not the lexicographer, but a
dancing master In Cheshire, who died in
177J1, was hurled !ha plantation forming
tiarl of the pleasure grounds of the Old
Hall, at GawtftVorlh, Hear Macclesfield.
His gravestone is yet lo be seen. "A
farmer named Trigg, of Stevenage,
Herts, directed his body to be inclosed
in lead and deposited in the tie-beam"
And another member of this odd sect of
what we mav call anti-churchvard inter
ment "rests on a table in tiic summer
house belonging to a family residence in
Northamptonshire." Thomas Hnllis,
a gentleman of considerable property
benovolcnt and eccentric, a warm
Liberal and as religious as liberal,
fell dead In the field where
he Was directing his workmen to dig his
grave, which then was to be plowed
over so that no trace of his last resting
place should be found. He was buried
as desired. Mr. Booth, of Brush House,
in Yorkshlro, was buried in his shrub-'
bery; Dr. Rcnny, a physician at New
port Pagnel, Bucks, was buried in his
garden on a raised plot of ground, sur
rounded by a small fence; and Thomas
Withers, an opulent German, who died
in 1843, was by his own direction buried
" beneath the "shade of his own trees,
and in his own ground." A line old
fellow,one Faithful,a shepherd in the Par
ish of Aston Clintonf is buried in a lonely
spot on the Chilterns. He had been
accustomed to lead his flock to this high
hilltop from youth to old age. and when
he died ho asked to be buried where he
had sat and meditated for so man years.
The' did as he desired, and laid him
beneath the turf, on which they then
cut this epitaph :
Faithful lived" and Faithful died.
Faithful lies buried on the hill Mile;
The hill so wide the llcids surround.
In the day of Judgement he'll be found.
A farmer and his female servant, lost
on tho moors near Hope, in Derbyshire,
were buried in the peat where they were
found. Twenty-nine fears after, their
graves were opened, and their bodies
found in perfect preservation ; and forty
five years after they were still as fresh
as before. Howel Sele was buried in the
trunk of a tree by Madoc, the friend
and companion of Owen Glendower,
Howel's cousin and murderer. The oak
was ever after called " Howel's oak,"
and is still pointed out to strangers but
where? Our " Book of Days," general
ly so exact, speaks only in this broad
and airy manner, but it wouhl be inter
esting to know the exact spot, if by
chance one should pass that way.
" John Wilkinson, the great iron-founder,
having made his fortune by the man
ufacture of iron, determined that his
body should be encased by his favorite
metal when he died. In his will he direct
ed tmit ho should be buried in his
garden, in an iron coffin, with an iron
monument over hin .- twenty
tons weight; and he was so buned
within thirty yards of his mansion of
Uasttehead. He haa tne coitm maue
long before his death, and used to take
pleasure in showing it to his visitors,
much to the horror of many of them.
He would also make a present of an iron
coffin to any one who might desire to
possess one. When he came to be
placed in his narrow bed it was found
that the coffin he had provided was too
small, so he was temporarily interred
until another could be made. When
placed in the ground a second time the
coffin was found to be too near the sur
face; accordingly it was taken up-and
an excavation cut in the rock, after
which it was buried a third time. On
the Castlehead estates being sold in
1828, the family directed the coffin again
to be taken up and removed it to the
neighboring chapel yard of Lindale,
where it now lies." London Quetn.
A novelty is the rose necklace, made
of artificial roses of various shades, from
maroon to pink. The largest roses used
are not larger that a silver dollar, and
these are placed in the middle for the

toward the back, where the necldace Is
tied with pale blue satin ribbon. Rose

hen, all she can do is to cackle, and
be contrary, and thwart you at. every
If vou want her to go in somewhere
she'lf be sure to want to go out, and
vice vcrfa. You want to drive her mot
when she gete out of the coop, and get
into your garden, to the total destruc
tion of your pet bnlhsj and rools, and
scctls, anil even thing else. One smart,
active hen will ilo more harm in a gar
den in one hour than a cow woidd do in
half a day.
A hen is born with the instinct to get
at the root of the matter, and she follows
out her nature.
When your hen gcUout of confine
ment she "makes straight for yoiir choic
est flower-bed, and she slays there for
in hour before you discover her. By
that time she has dug out every thing
that you care4 anything about, and has
buried herself up, all but her head, and
then she lies in the sun wjth happiness
and triumph in her speaking counte
nance. How mad you are! You feel as if
you could sever her joints and make
her into a pot-pie with a will no mat
ter if she is one of a trio that cost ten
You go for her with energy, and
scream out "shoo!" to her, and flourish
your apron, and make wild gestures in
her direction, and call your husband,
and the children, and the hired girl, to
help drive her into her quarters.
Now, it is never any use to call a man
to holp drive a hen. "Wo are willing to
admit that tho lords of creation can do
quantities of things that the weaker sex
can not, but there Is one thing a man
can never do anil that is to drive a
He'll break the rake handle, and get
hung in the clothes-line, and lose his
hat, and fall down over the croquet
wickets, and burst off two or thrco of
his suspender buttons, and the hen will
fly up on top of the barn, or take refuge
iii the tallest tree on the premises, and
there she will stay and laugh at him till
she is ready to come down. And all
the men in creation can not drive her
down, for she knows that she has got
tilings her own way.
Your hen that you are going to drive
generally cackles all the time you arc
trying to drive her. It gives her cour
age, perhaps, to defy you. It is like
the music of a martial band when the
troops are marching into battle. It is
as inspiriting as the strains of Yankee
Doodle to the hen's car. You try gen
tleness first.
"Shoo, biddy! shoo, biddy! shoo,
there!" and she plunges off in the di
rection contrary to the one you wish her
to go in ; and" then you draw off your
forces and execute a flank movement,
and "pen " her tip, but, presto! just as
you think you have got her, she squats
and gives a scoot right out under your
skirts at.d away slio goes free as air.
Then you get some eor:i and try to bribe
her. Oil, no, she doesn't want any corn,
thank you. She is above bribery. She
doesn't take any stock in your " chicky !
ehicky! chicky!" delivered in your
most cajolingof voices. Still she cackles.
All the roosters cackle, too, evidently
tickled with her spunk. A few hens
who are not curious join in. All the
neighbors will be looking out to see
" what on earth you are making them
hens screech so for."
Your husband gets a pole and makes
a dive for that hen. He'll t her cackle
for her! he says; she'll go Into that hen
house, or he'll know the reason.
And by the time he has chased her all
over thepremises, and torn his pants,
and knocked a piece of skin off his
hand, and run over little Charley, he
does find out the reason. It is because
she is not of a mind to go into that hen
house. And ho says that hens are a nuisance,
and that he'd kill the whole of 'cm, and
ho wishes there had never been one in
vented. By this time you are tired of his help,
and you request him to go away and
you'll drive that hen in.
Then you begin. The hen begins,
too. She flies over the fence, ana up
on a neighbor s woodshed, ami down
into somebody's pig-pen, and the pig
takes after her with vim, and she flies
out with a screech, and runs under the
barn, and there she stays till night, and
then if yon will leave open your hen
house door she will find her way thither,
as meek and Innocent-looking as you
please for " chickens and curses come
home tp roost." Kate Thorn, in N. Y.

A Califoraia Bog Story.
Michael Sullivan, employed at South
Vallejo, Cal., lo watch the depot and
clean out the passenger coaches, ha a
wonderfully intelligent dog which is
called Mickey. The animal became
the property of Sullivan when a puppy,
and. he concluded to drown him. It
being a very warm day, he called at a
brewery for a glass of beer, and put the
pup on the counter while he quenched
his thirst. While he was talking to " the
proprietor he left the class on the coun
ter, partly tilled with beer, lte little
dog crawled up to ir, and lapoed the
beer with the keenest relish nntil it was
all gone. Another glass was disposed
of in the same manner. Mike then
changed his mind about drowning the
pap, and has kept him until the present
time. Every day Mickey looks for his
schooner" of beer with as much
expectancy as Mike does himself. If
the owner can not go for his favorite
beverage he places a dime in Mickey's
mouth, and the dog trots off to the
brewery, place it on the counter and
waits patiently for the bar-tender to fili
tne glass.
As scon as the cars come in Mickey is
always first to go through and look for
any thing that may have been left be
hind by the passengers. If he discovers
any thing he stands at the door of the
car and barks until his master comes to
him. Once Mickey saw an article left
ia eoe of the hat-racks, and ran to his
master to call his attention to it. While
he was gone an idler standing in the
depot passed through the cars, and
BoticiBg the package, stole it, but it
was afterward recovered; since that
time Mickey never leaves the car until
his master comes in. In cleaning out
the cars Mickey is always on hand to
carry the mops and dusters from one
car to the other. iallejo Uhromdc

The mode of life prescribed by the
order is very severe and self-denying.
They take but six hours sleep, and do
vote over eight hours to penance and
prayer. Thesis eight hours are taken up
by the regularly prescribed prayers,
but besides these prh'ate prayers are
said. The latter are often accompanied
by self-imposed hardships. The dross
of the nuns is ery fcimple. The cloth
ing is of coarse wool. The hood is
composed of linen. A sandal of coarse
sack-cloth is worn on the feet. The food
is very simple, as no meat or any thing
prepared with fat is tasted. There are

dinner, at 11a. in., and a collation at ft
p. m. These rulc3 do not apply to the

partake of meat and wear a hoes. The
hours not given to sleep and prayer they
devote to manual labor.
No wonder that an order that inipoe.s
so many hardships can find but few
members. Since its establishment here
but four have joined, making the total

in "his youth by deliberately taking out
