THE MAGIC WAND.
Tn the good oltl days of the city of
Wilmington, some seventy or eighty
years ago, there lived a couple in Ihat
quaint little Quaker town by the name
of Vertz, belter known as Uuteh Dolly
mid Iter husband.
Dutch Dolly laid a truck patch
wherein she raised vegetables peas,
radishes, potatoes and beans --supplying
tho better part of the town with
such produce. Her husband was a tai
lor, ami is described in the chronicles of
the town as sitting cro-s-leggod n his
bench opposite the window that looked
out on Hie stony street.
Dutch Dolly was a woman of much
jmpoitanco of demeanor, and is de
scribed as being the admiration of the
rising generation when, on a fa:r-day
or holiday, fche appeared in "a black
velv t hood, a bodice of the same, a
petticoat of superior blue cloth, the
whole dress trimmed with gold-lace and
two rows of gold-fringe on the skirt."
I!ut Tailor Vert was as puuy and in
significant :i3 his helpmate was large
and imposing. Dutch Dolly attended
to her husband's business, collected his
l ills for him, and took such good care
of h's money that the poor little fellow
was driven to many an odd shift to get
a stray cent or tip To 11113- him a pinch of
rappee or a small glass of strong waters
to cunfort his inner man. One of lis
means for gaining small contributions
was b' telling fortunes, which he did
bv the aid of astrology, knowing a
great 111:1113- stare, from Aldcbaran
1 wnward. For thoso who consulted
'1:111. hielly, serving-maids and vcr3'
Ao.ii'ggirls. he drew mysterious signs
f the heavens, in which" the sun, moon,
ami ftars were represented in miracu
lous conjunction. But with all his
fault, with all his cloudy reputation
among the good folk. Tailor Vertz was
a merry, chipper litt'e fellow, and,
A hough not entirely trustworthy, had
a b n he a heart :is any iu Wilmington.
He n.:.s a great favoiito with the boys;
lie cw.ld whistle as sweet as a robin,
he could sing numberless ba'lads and
soun iu his jueer piping voice; and
had a knack of whittling little trinkets
-out of wood, which he sold, thus turn
ing an odd pemry from his youug
There were two 1103' friends especial
ly, Ned Sprimrer and lJilly Shallcross
bv name, who were fond of loitering at
oild times in the dusty, must3' little
shop. They looked upon the tailor as
on of the wisest of men, and would
listen by the hour to his stories of won
dentil adventures of perils he had
reaped, of magic books he had read,
aril of the wonders of his black-art, be
hcx.nir everything with the utmost
hiiirority; for bo3s wore much more
cr duloiis then than they are nownihiys.
The l.tlle tailor delighted especially to
ta ! of his mysterious art, and often be
wailed himself that lie had never been
:il !c to lind a branch of witch-willow,
which had such properties that he
could with it tell wherever secret treas
ure lay buried, lie generally spoke of
this v itch-willow iu connection with
old .Ian .Judsoifs house.
.Ian .ludson was an old Swede of a
g iteration preceding that of which we
arc speaking. 60 far a3 trustworthy
narratives tell of him, he appears to
h.iW been only an eccentric, miserly
iil bachelor. A veiy heay thuudcr-j-t
1 m which passed over the region in
which .Ian lived struck his house with
lightning, and it was burned to the
ground, all that was leu Doing a tan
.-tone chimney and a pilo of stones.
Whether it wlis the effect of the elec
tricity, or merely the shock of losing
h s property that affected the owner,
certain it is that the old Swede, though
res "ited from the llames, died a day or
two after the accident. Of course the
occurrence gave rise to man3 weird
stories connected with old Jau Judson.
It was said that One lied appeared to
him in lire and llanie to cany him oil
brtMilv, and all agreed that ho had left
great wealth behind. Treasure-hunters
had dug in the cellar, and had turned
over the stones, but had found noth
ing: or, if they had, had said nothing
( me bright afternoon the two boys
entered the shop of Tailor Vertz, whom
they found sitting eross-legged on his
bench, with one linger touching his f ore
lit ad. apparently stiulj in deep medita
tion a position which he had assumed
v.ixczi lie heard the bovs approacmng.
He held up his hand to them to enjoin
silence, and thev stood looking at him,
a lit tie awe-struck and very much wond
ering. At last he rouscdhimsclf, and,
looking cautiously, beckoned them to
"I haf fouudt it," said ho, in a mys
" round what?"
" Hush! de vitch-villow."
"Yes. de vitc:i-villow. I haf foundt
it town in de marsh. Look!" And he
drew forth a slender osier twig that ho
had cut and peeled the day before.
"Then you'll be rich, won't you?'
said Ned Springer, excitedly. "All
you'-, e rot to do is to walk around and
to im treasure."
Tailor Vertz shook his head sadly.
" 1 haf foundt creat tings, but I lack
fc " What's that?"
"Money. If I had von quarter of a
f ioliar, I vas all right. I must coot a
' leetle hole into de -vitch-villow, and
melt some silfer and hour into it, "and
den it is magics."
"Why don't you get somebody to
lend voti a quarter?" said IJiHy-
"Dat's votl vantsto do," said Tailor
. Vertz. "Now I tells you vot I do.

"Black Imp's Night! what's that?'
"Shust vait, and I tells you. To

" But suppose 3-011 don't find any?
said Ned, dubiously.
"Of course 1 Iindt some," saidTailor
Vertz. indignantly. "Didn't I tells
.. you I foundt a pranch of vitcb-vil-

ner: "I didn't tinks 3'ou vouldn't bo

"Of course we think vou' re honc3t."
spolco up Billy. " If I irati a quarter of
a dollar I'd lend it to you. I've only
got a levy. How much have you got,
"Onlyafip. Maybe I can get another
from Aunt Catherine, though."
"Very veils," said thc little man,
climbing rather hastily back on the
bench, for he thought he heard his wife
coming" very veils; put pring do
quarter to-night, else 1 get it from sorae
podies." Tho boys were all excitement and in
terest. They laid out so many plans
for the spending of their wealth when
they should get it and built so many
castles in the air, that they wound them
selves up to a thorough pitch of enthu
siasm. That night they brought the
tailor the quarter of a dollar. He pock
eted the monc3 made an appointment
with them for the next night to go
treasure-hunting, and, after" thev were
gone, melted some lead and poured it
into a hole in the willow wand for the
sake of appearances.
The next night the three met at a
paling fence at the foot of Stalcop's
lot; the tailor brought his magic wand.
Billy Shallcross a lantern, and Ned
Springer a crowbar for turning over the
As the three walked along. Tailor
ertz beguiled the way with stories of
the departed Swede, and how his ghost
haunted the ruins how it was apt to
appear to treasure-hunters, laying its
grizzly hand upon them at the very mo
ment of finding the sought-for treasure,
until the hearts of his listeners quaked
with dread. Probably they would
willingly have sacriticed their hopes of
treasure and turned back, butneitherof
them liked to propose such a measure.
The lantern cast a ghostly Hitting light
on the fence posts and "trees as they
walked along, and so drew near the
ruined hotioC, the chimney of which
stoodb'ack against the sky."
"Now den: is von tings to re
member,"' said Tailor Vertz, as they
stood on the shapeless pile of stone3
that marked the ruin. He spoke im
pressively. "Now dere is von tings to
remember. From de moment de stick
pegins to p'int, you musn't .speak von
vord, for .shoost as soon as 3011 do pool!
de magics all goes out of de stick, do
silfer turns into lead, and de treasure
all melt like ice on a hot stove. If you
see a ghost, den mind, shoost don't pay
no notice to him, but go on vorkings,
and sa3' nodings. Are you ready?"
"Suppose 3'ou take life crowbar, and
I'll hold the lantern," said Hilly.
"No, I've carried it all the way, and
I'm tired," said Ned.
The3 uoth thought there was less
danger from the ghost to the one that
hold the lantern than to the one that
la'd a hand on his buried treasure.
However, it was finally determined that
Ned should begin, and work until ho
was tired, and then Billy should take a
turn. The tailor stepped forward,
holding the wand by the middle be
tween his finger and thumb. In this
wa3' the slightest movement of the lin
gers would direct it. The bo3'8 watched
him with the most intense interest. The
willow wand moved slowh; this wa3
and that, and fitfully' pointed toward a.
great beam that reached across the
chimney just over the firc-p'aee, thus
indicating it as the place where a treas
ure must be. The boys approached
eautiousry, Bilby holding the lantern,
and Ned firmly grasping I he crowbar,
both wrought up to a high pitch of
nervoii3 excitement, while tho tailor
stood a little back from them. It was a
hopeless-looking piece of work for two
boys to remove such a beam, so im
bedded in the stone and mortar, and
probablj' lha', was WI13' the tailor had
selected it Ned struck the crowbar
between the stones, jjist under the
beam, but it was a quarter of an hour's
job to loosen the first stone, which was
veiy large; but finally it came, and
then an thor. Then Ned, whose face
was beaded with perspiration, handed
the crowbar to Billy. B3' this time the
were beginning to regain their courage.
Billy examined the chimney' carefully,
and seeing a stone looser than the rest,
just over the beam, determined to begin
the attack in that quarter; so he stuck
tho crowbar between that stone and the
next, and began to prize. Iu tho mean
time. Tailor Vertz had grown tired, ami
determined to hasten matters; accord
ingly, just as the stone was loosening,
he gave an unearthly groan.
"What's that?" cried Billy, and let
go of the crowbar. It fell clanking on
the stones, and with it fell the stone he
was loosening. The groan, and the
noise of the falling of the crowbar
and the stone, frightened Ned so that
he dropped the lantern; and the boys,
leaping over the pilo of stones, fled up
the road like frightened tleer, closely
followed b3' the tailor, who was scarce
ly less frightened than they were. At
length they stopped, and stood, pant
ing, about a uumireu varus up tho road.
"Ach! mcin Ilimmel!" cried Tailor
Vertz, stamping his foot, "what you
speak for? You have shpoilt all de
magic of dc vitch-villow. Vy d'.d 3011
not hold your tongue 1"'
"Did you hear that groan?" said
Billy, in an awful voice.
"It must have been tho ghost," said
Ned. Then, in a very loud voice, " I
don't Avaut the mone anyhow," cried
"But 3ou dropped father's lantern
"Well, you dropped myfathcr's crow
bar. It was 3ou that seared me,
dropping it. so you ought to go back
Finally they concluded that all three
should go, for comp-my's sake.
They approached the spot very cau
tiously, the tailor, who had no iurthcr
reason for frightening them, encourag
ing them to proceed, but himself keep
ing a little back, as he was secretly
much afraid of ghosts. Luckily for
their fears, the candle in the lantern had
not gone out, but had burned as it fell,
guttering the tallow, and running it
over the glass of the lantern. Billy
picked it up, and the light flashed out
more brightly. Ned also picked up his
crowbar, and tlie3' turned to leave,
when Billy cast a "g'ance at the hole
whence tlie stono ho had been working
at had fallen.
"Stop," he cried. suddenly; "what's
"What's what?' said Ned.
"There's something in there."
"Dere? where?" said the tailor,
They all three looked in the hole;
then Billy thrust in his hand, and drew
out a small wooden box. It was crumb
ling with dry-vot, and without much ef
fort ho broke off the lid with his fingers.
The boys could scarcely believe their
eyes. Ned sprang from'thoground and
gave a shout. The box was full of mon
ey. They wern chiefly copper coins
and small silver pieces; still, it was a
treasure to the boys.
All this time Tailor Vertz had been
standing with staring eyes and open
mouth. Ho was amazed, thunder
struck, dumbfounded, that ho, who had
been deceiving tho boys with juggling
tricks, should have actually showed
them a real treasure. All of a sudden
it came over him with a rush that he
had deliberately led the boys to this
spot, and plaee'd their very hands, as it
were, upon all this monc3'" He felt as
though it had been taken from his'own
pocket, and burst out in a sudden tor
rent of words, scolding and stamping
his feet in such a way that the boys
" What's the matter?" they cried.
"Vat's de matter?" shouted the
tailor, beating his breast -"vatfs de
matter? Oh, Vertz! you fooll you
fool! Oh, if I'd only known it vas

To go empty it out of my pockets Into

Didn't iTie witch-willow tell you so?"
" Vitch-villow! Oh, yon yank! vat's
a vitch-villow bat to fool suoh tunccs as
"Then you were only fooling us.
were you?" said U1II3'.
The tailor began to cool down some
what at that, and entered on a long ex
planation, in which ho got very much
"All very well." said Billy; "but tell
us now, up'and down, fair and square,
did ou know anything about the raou
ey being there?"
The little tailor looked at him doubt
fully for a while.
"Veil,"" said he, hesitatingly, "no-o,
I didn't, and dat's de trut'.- "
Both boys burst into a laugh.
"Well," said Billy, "share and bharo
alike anyhow; that's fair."
However, they deducted the quarter
dollar from Tailor Vertz's share. Billy's
share was six dollars and twenty-three
cents, Ned's six dollars aud twenty-two
cents, and Tailor Vertz's five dollars
and ninety-seven cents, with which he
expressed himself perfectly satisfied.
Forever after this adventure Dutch
Doll)'s husband was more careful about
telling the boys of the mysteries of his
art; anil when lie would get on tho sub
ject, Bilby was apt to slyly remind him
of the magic wand, ffoxard Iylc. in
Harper's l'ounj People.
Because a girl dresses showily it is
not necessary to suppose that she is
extravagant. Because she is extrava
gant, it does not follow that she is
heartless. Extravagance may be the
result of unwise training, ignoranco of
the value of money, social inexperience,
unlimited income. Show and gavety
may exist with heroic traits. Even
that which is called coquetry and flirt
ing is often but the development of
mental brilliancy, social tact and the
amiable desire to please. She who wins
all hearts is often capable of an intense
and life-long devotion. L have in mind

than home and husband. They love

good clothes, against which there is no
law. In his narrow home, at the foot
of the ladder, to whieh he has as yet, it

trouble, ami toil, and calico; and worse
still the calico becomes quickly tumbled
and soiled. What will her husband

of love in a cottage admits "a cozy tea
table, bright silver, tidy rooms, and a
smiling wife, in a dainty white dress,
with a rosebud in her hair. But love
will not stay in a cottage unless the
silver bo rubbed. The snow-white

Trees whieh produce nuts are almost
invariably of value for timber as well as
for fuel. The nuL-j themselves tins valu
able not only for food for men but for
domestic animals. The nuts produced
on hickory, pecan- walnut and butter
nut trei.'H are desirable for use in the
family, and command a ready sale in
the market. A given area of land in
nut-bearing trees will produce almost as
much food for hogs as when planted to
annual crops. Alter the trees are suf
ficiently large to bear they require no
attention. The wood of all our native
trees that produce large, oily nuts is
valuable for posts. r:ii!-j Mid for many
other purposes, wli'dc it ranks very high
as fuel. Acorns possess more value as
stock food than most people Mippoe
they do. In Great Britain they are held
in high esteem for feeding to both pigs
and sheep. The oak is a liberal bearer,
is hearty and long-lived. Tho wood of
several varieties is very valuable for
posts, for handles to tools, and for ma
terials for barrels and casks. Some
kinds of oak make most excellent and
a'l kinds make a very fair quality of
fuel. There is no more valuable tree
than the chestnut in places where it can
be grown. It pays to raise it on broken
and rocky land for the nuts it bears or
for the timber or fuel ftirnUhcd by tho
wood itself. Nut bearing trees arc al
ways useful for two purposes, often for
three, and sometimes, as when they
furnish g.od shade and serve :is orna
ments to the farm, are valuable for no
less than five distinct uses. Nut-bearing
trees generally prefer broken, roekv
land, which is not adapted to the pro
duction of annual crops or the banks
of streams ami lakes where the plow can
not be cinplojed to good advantage.
Many persons object to nut-iiearmg
trees because it is difficult to transplant
them on account of their tap roots,
whieh are quite long, even when the
trees are very young. It is c:isv. how
ever, to raise them by planting the seed
in the places where the trees are de
sired, and by adopting this course the
expense of purchasing trees is saved.
All the varieties of tho a-h are valua

wood is used in the construction of a
largo number of agricultural imple
ments, for finishing houses, for staves
and heading for barrels and caks, for
making baskets, for dimension timber
and riii's. Most varieties of the :ish
flourish best on land that is too moist
for most agricultural purposes, and is
unsuitable for the production of tho
better kinds of grass. A few kinds of
trees, as the basswood or linden, pro
duce a largo amount of blossoms which
secrete honey. A basswood forest is of
great value to bee-keepers. The wood

trees cast a deuso shade. The trees
when placed in suitable situations are
highly ornamental. When of large
size they present a very stately and
Two points should never be lost sight
of in attempting to raUc forest trees
with a view to profit. One is to place
them on land that is of comparatively
little value for general agricultural pur
poses. On nearly every farm of consid
erable size there is " some land too
rocky, broken or moist for general cul
tivation. This land is always adapted
to the production of one or more varie
ties of valuable trees. By planting
them on these waste places the appear
ance of the farm may be improved sjuI
its value increased. The other point is
to plant those varieties of trees that
arevaluable for more than one purpose.
Ilefore expending money for trees to
set out, it is best to ascertaiu if they
are likely to succeed in the locality for
which they are designed. Large sums
have been expended in Northern Illi
nois for chestnut, hemlock and beech
trees by persons who were accustomed
to them in other parts of the country,
and who desired to have their old
friends in their new homes. With rare
exceptions their timo and money have
been expended in vain. Ltucago 1 imcs.
It is very satisfactorily shown that
a crop of cofu is easier on'the soil than
a crop of oats. It is far easier to pro
duce sixty or seventy bushels of 'corn,
weighing 3.G0O to 4.203 pounds, to the
acre, with three or four tons of dry
fodder, than fifty bushels of oats,
weighing 1,600 pounds, and a ton of
straw. This is accounted for by the
fact that corn is able to procure a large
quantity of its nitrogen from the soil
where oats cannot, aad that a good
crop of corn can bo grown with the
help of potash and phosphoric acid
alone, and yet show in the crop a large
Suantity of nitrogen, while oats cannot
e grown without the nitrogen added to
the other manures. A great many experi
ments have been made in this direction
with this effect- Now, as nitrogen is
ihe most costly ingredient of both fer
tilizers and of" feeding stuffs (of which
manure is made), it is considered that
the crops which need the most of this
element to be supplied for their growth
arc really the most exhausting crops.
Oats are generally considered, by prac
tical farmer? to be unusually " hard on
the soil."' The writer- has grown good

J hero is scarcely any operation in
gardening where there is so much op
portunity for the exercise of skill and
good judgment as in transplanting.
Tho skillful gardener will move his
plants so that they will hardly receive
any check in their growth, while tin
careless removal of plants or tho choice
of too dry weather, with subsequent
neglect, occasions tho los of many
thoiinmls of plants overy year and
much disappointment. In order to bear
transplanting well tho plant should be
in thrifty, growing condition, but not
by any means -'drawn" or "long
legged.' as gardeners are wont to call
such plants as have suflorcd from
crowding or too rapid forcing under
glasj; they should be grown in sandy
loam, which favors fibrous growth o"f
roots, and should be well watered a
few hours before moving, so as to have
the roots moist when moved. Then
care should be given to have the loam
iu which the plants are planted moist
enough and warm enough to favor
rapitf growth: and if possible, they
should be shaded from sun and wind
for a few days after transplanting if the
sun is hot.
Iu order to insure plants against wilt
ing when transplanted, they may be
grown in pots, but this involves a good
deal of expense, and a simpler method
is in use among, the gardeners, for
moving such tenilcr plants as cucum
bers, melons, summer s plashes, Lima
beans, &c. The plants are pricked out
under glass, in groups of lour plants
each, the hills being nine inches square,
or thirty-two to a sash; when grown so
as to require transplanting, which will
be in about two weeks, or by the time
they begin to run. have the ground
ready for them, and wet them down
well "over night, so that the earth will
cling to the foots; have ready a few
square rings of sheet zinc, nine inches
s piare, made by folding a strip of zinr
three inches wide and three feet long,
into a nine inch square prism, without
top or bottom, and soldering the edges
together. Take a nng aud press it
