THE POSTMAN'S STOKY.
Traversing the same streets every
day, one soon comes to look upon
familiar faces as those of his friends. I
have no idea that the ocnipants of the
handsome houses on Hoerly Street
over dream that they are anything to
ini; and 1 am sure tho poor people of
Clarence Place would bo surprised to
learn that I hey aro in' friends; but it is
Ileverly Street and Clarenco Place!
The most imposing avenue and the
humblest lane' Ami, strange as it may
seem, they almost run into each other,
they are so verv near.
It was early in October that I first
noticed the new occupants of No. 15;
nnd cadi morning afterwa.d I saw a
little jirl of about eleven 3 ears, with a
woman who .seemed to be her nurse,
sitt:ng upon tho doorsteps, apparently
waiting for some one. A peculiarly

' and tnc morning anerwani 1 was taken
1 sick. It proved to bo nothing uut a
' heavy cold, but it laid me up for a
week or more. When I found nnse'f
upon 1113 feet again, it seemed as if we
1 had stepped int another season, as,
indeed, we had. The a.r was keen and
frosty and the gutters were lull ot fall

beauties for Stella, thinking, with a
sigh, of the other littlj friend, who
could never know their loveliness. I
hoped to find her waiting for me, as bo-
fore: but she was nowhere to bo seen.
Neither was Uussiu's good-natured face
visible; so 1 hurried along to Clarenco '
Place. I ran quickly up the stairs; but, j
before I had time to give tho "post-'
man's rap." Mrs. Diblev appeared
upon thu threshold.
"Ah! I knew you," she said, pleas-
I inquired for Stella, producing my
leaves. She orened the door and I
1 walked in. Time was precious with mo;
but, for all that, 1 lost more than half a
second in silent, stupid staring, lhero
sat Stella, propped up upon the lounge,
as usual; oui 11 was sucn a nappy muo
face that sho turned toward me that I

where, while' close beside her, holding

herself so perfocth' at homo was a mys
tery to me; and riot less strange it was
to seo thn handsomely-dressed lad- who
stood lookiug with a faco half-pleased,
half-sad upon the two.
" O h!'1 screamed Stella, as sho saw
me. " It's niy postman."
"Then it's "my postman, too," cried
Angio. "This "is" our postman, mam-

! And I left them admiring the beauty
1 which Mrs. Trowbridge was trying to
cxplain to them.
Now it came to p ss that Angle's
gentle, loving companionship brought
so mu"h brightness into Stella's hitherto
colorless life that both It tie j-irls-reemed
quite Hooded wi h it. Their faces
shone every djy as if they had rece'ved
a benediction. So it went on for a
month or more. Then, as I opened the
doon of the Dibley tenement one day, 1
wa surprised to "find Stella in tears.
"Doa't fret over It, dear," her
mo her was saying. "She knows you
can't do it Sne doesn't lodk for any

of her distress.
"Angie gives me so much," sho
sobbed. "Candv and .books, and a

' Now hers is coming, and I can't

So the oppression of obligation had
come to little Stella; the longing to
share in the "more blessed," which is
certainly the more agreeable, part. She
had not yet learned (what many an
older person has never grown large
enough to find out) that "he who takes
for love's sweet sake" ma3 sometimes
prove himself even more generous than
he who gives. No, Stella was too
young to take this comfort to herself,
and her childish longing was .very nat

as I went my way that day, and I put
myself to thinking: if some way might

"What bhall 1 choose?"
I siigcfited one or two, which wcro
vetoed at once.
"She's heard those. She's heard
everything. Her mother reads to her
even day." (And hero Stella's face
clouded.) "We could never hit upon
atiithinrp that she had not heard."
Here was a dilemma, for we were
both anxious that Angle hou!d hae
something new. Stella sat thoughtful
for a moment. Then he said, eagerly:
"Couldn't ou writ's her a story. Air.

Well, the leaves were cut and the
stores written. Then came Stella's
work-of pricking them in. This was no
small undertaking and the difficulty
was increasod by the frequent visits of
the blind girl he

not r.pcnd some portion with her poor
little friend. -
"And I wouldn't for tho world take
it out wheu sho is here," said Stella,
despairingly. " She will see even'
thing, if sho is blind."
Put the cvenin :s remained and Stella
was diligent. Two da's beforo the
birthday the stories were ready. The
little girl closed her eyes and passed
her hand complacently "over her work.
"If lingers can sec anything. I'm
J sure the-can seo this," said she; and I
thought so, too.
Out of a pretty pasteboard box wc

pricked the title wth 11 shoemakers

there was nothing about the book

but the ditlereut colors of tho leaves
and covers and the bright little bows ol
ribbon which tied them together.
"Anil now" cried Stella, "let's do

to "Miss Angio Trowbridge." Then I

She drew a long breath, as if the
prospect of the coming enjoyment were
too much for her. Then she took my
hand and squeezed it tight.
" I can't think whnUuiake you all so
good to me," she said, simply.
I had no letter for Clarence Place
that morning; but toward twilight I
found myself once more in Stella's lit

the bed sat Angie, the precious book in
her hand. Swiftly her small fingers
passed over the lines, and verv clear
and sweet was the little voice which
was reading the "True Tales" to a

inferior corn with wh.t would seem to
be di-eouiaging regularity. Without
wasting time or space m elaborating
upon this phac of the subject, it is
quite sufficient to say that we must
have good seed. Seed that is posesed 1
ol vitalit3 and seed which is like the
corn we with to produce. To this ma
be added that a crop which it so vastly
important to us as individuals, and us
n'Nattoti. as torn, should receive tho
best and most studious attention in Its
culture from the selection and preserva
tion of the heed to the harvesting of tho
crop, and it is pertinent to remark in
this connection that our farms do uut
average what they should in corn. Not
only is this owing often to poor seed,
and imperfect cultivation, but not infre
quently to poor or comparatively poor
land. Poor land is not profitable under
any circumstances, but it never prove
more unprofitable than when plained
to corn. If tho laud is in t ne condi
tion, the crops will be enabled to gut a
good start in the spring, and get out ot
the wa3- of drought, aud some othet
common dangeis. During tho pas'.
seaon, which began so late mat a great
deal of corn will not cten roach the
dignity of resjectable fodder, we have
seen corn upon old barn sites, for in
stance, that was equal to arry corn in
the most favorable seasons, while all
other corn in the ueighbrjrhod wa
backward and unpromising. Indeed
we have not seen a single I:eld of corn
this season, on extra r.eh land, that wa-
not in excellent cond tion. If we would
consult our own interests, there. ore, we
will lnm" on tilt condition of our land.
One lesson has been so prominently J
taught this 3 ear that it woubl seem im
possible for any ono not to recognize it.
The late wet spring of the present year
was dis.tstrous to the corn. The ground
was so full of water that the roots
could not penetrate to auy depth, and,
when tho drought began, they were
near the surface, exposed to the full
force of the long, dry spell. Drainage
is- the lessou that such a statu of tlrns J
teaches, aud if am oue has seen athor
oughlv drained held of corn this sea
sou, ho will profit b3 tho lesson, for he
has seen a good stand of corn, in most
excellent condition. In a ride through
jiortons of Illinois not long s.nco,
where the corn was literally burnedup.
we came to a field where the core waw
of vigorous growth, looking as healthy
and promising as an corn ever looked.
The secret was in drainage. The land
was thoroughly drained.
Returning to thesubjectof seed corn,
tho strictest care should be exercised
in its tc'eetion while it ii yet in the
field, on tho stalk, and Lefore thcfrosti
come. Keeping constantly in view the
principle of like producing like, go
through tho field and select such ears
as arc perfect, and such corn as is
wished to be produced. Place this in
some position, safe from rats and m.ce.
as will enable it to be smoked and
artificially dried. Tying it up, and sus
pending it from something is a good
plan. Then thoroughly smoke and dry.
Tho creosote which comes from tho
smoke is a nreservative. and the com
will bo found iu the spring to be full of
vitality aud vigor. Ibis has been our
usual plan, and when we have neglect
ed it we never raised as good corn as
wc did when we followed: it- Care in
this respect will certainly lessen the
complaints about the failure of secur
ing a stand of corn, which arc now so
prevalent that they indicate that about
one quartor of the seed corn used ever3
year is worthless. Western ttural.
Forest Fires and Mire Timber.
From all sides come discussions and
suggestions on tho timber question.
Here before us is nn articlo in a Lon
don paper, showing the enormous
amount of red cedar used for pencils,
and the incredible difiicult3 of obtain
ing it. Fearful, it is laid, that the sup
Iily wih fail, the celebrated Fabcr has
Miwght a large tract of land and planted
it with cedars, which may help his firm
after he is gone, if it does no good to
himself, 'lben wc have also before ws
a cry from New Eugland. The mill
owners use large quantities of spools
which are made from the birch, but the
birch forests are giving out, and what
are they to do next? So it is with vari
ous trades and occupations, requiring
peculiar kinds of woods in their manu
factures. The timber which they sev
erally require is undoubtedly getting
scarcer, and it is a natural anxiety which
asks us what wc are going to do about it?
The only response is, plant more.
But who is to do it and how is it to be
done? The easy-going citizen who is
imbued with the majesty of the law.
thinks Government ought to do it
Governments do it in other countries,
why should not ours attempt what oth
ers successfully do? It does not follow
as a thing of counte. Other Govern
ments are paternal. They ara accus
tomed to supply their immediate ne
cessities and provide for the future.
Our Government is our servant. It is
simply to keep peace and order among '
ourselves and to so arrange that each
has the largest liberty oossible without
infringing on his neigh bor.
That forest culture can be made to
pay, when judiciously managed, has
been shown in our columns for years
past. It need not take a lifetime to get
one's money back, but for all this thero
are many drawbacks which will pre
vent investments in that line. Here,
for instance, as we write wo are in a
dense smoke from the burning forests
hundreds of miles away, and so it has
been every year. Michigan. Canada.
New Jersey, "New York and portions of
New England bring every year to Ger
mantown their disastrous tale of smoke.
It is poor encouragement to the forest-
Elanter to f,eel that the end of all his
iboxs may be a forest tire. Yet the
danger must be encountered if we are
to increase to any great extent our tim
ber suppiy. There are risks ia every
thing we undertake.
It is evident that tbe whole subject is
one beset with difficulties. That tim
ber is growing scarcer we all know;
that an. abundance of timber is essea
tial to our National progress is clear
that some precautions should be takes

Some Eiper.UL'u! with Wheat.
In the fall of lb78 I put in two acres
of wheat and sowed one busbol of seed
on one acre and one-half bushel on tho
other. It was sown September 8, and
when it tirst came no there was a
marked difference between the two
strips. Uut tho fall was favorable for j
growth, and beforo winter it was difli- j
cult to tell which was the thin-scoded ,
part. A neighbor cut it for me, aud I i
told him that one side was seeded with (
half a bushel and the other witn a
bushel, and asked him to pay particular
attention and see if ho could tell which
was the heaviest, but ho couid detect
no diJcrence. Wo had 103 shocks,
fcft-one on one acre and fifty-two on
the'other, and the yield was tliirty-fivc
bushels per acre. " 'I he next year I
iitrlml (mir nr.a tn tlin nrfr nnn anil-
J cd it with three pecks of seed to tho
acre. Ine Meld was loj bushels, or
thirty bushefs per acre. I have grown
on picked acres over forty bushels of
wheal from three pecks of seed.
In the fail of 1875 I manured a strip
of thin land with bone meal at the rate
of about SOd pounds per acre, and left i
a space one rod wide through the cen-
ter to test the difference. As soon as
the wheat started to grow in the spring
that on which tho bone was used tut
grew the other, so that it could be
seen from a distance in passing the
field, and at harvest the unmanured
strip was not worth cutting, while the
part " boned" made fifteen bushels of
excellent wheat to the acre.
In the fall of 1879 I sowed four acres
of wheat on corn land. It was a co!d
clay, and I had rarely grown a paying
crop on it. the corn that year did not
make twenty bushels to the acre. I di
vided it into four equal strips and ma
nured the first with ono barrel of sifted
hen manure; the second with twelve
loads of stable manure; the third with
2lX) pounds of ground bone and the
fourth with 200 pounds of superphos
phate. I left strips ton feet wide iiu
out any isauure between the different
plots. " From a comparison of the un
manured strips I estimate that I doubled
the crop by the fertilizers. The four
acres yielded 1:20 bushels, and atthougL
I did not thrash the strips separately. I
found that tho barrel of hen manure
made as heavy a crop as the twelve
loads of stable manure. Possibly it
supplied just what was needed in the
soil or gave the wheat just the quick
start needed to enable it to find materi
al already there. If a barrel of hin
manure, as the experiment indicates,
will add ten or fifteen bushels of wheat
to the acre, it is time farmers were find-
am much in favor of top-dressing.
wheat land, and from experiments ex
teadiag over several years, 1 find one
load of manure made fine axd spread
ob the surface, is worth to the wheat
crop two plowed aader. If used in this
way every half cord of manure will
make aa extra bushel of wheat and
under favorable circatastaaccs it will
often double this. 1 believe that xia
nure from ashed where it has been al
lowed to accumulate aad retain all the
liqaid, k wertm'two or threa tames as
anca for wheat as that from ti - bara
vari. aad I an so sitaated tiiie year
that I caa test the auttter. aa I have
several loads of aaaaare ia stable
where I have' kept a aaire aad colt all
summer. "Waldo F. Vrvmrt, in Mitral
