would not pay it. I took the pleas to
Mr. Wells, Secretary of the Navy, sad
also to Mr. Seward, Secretary of State.
!Mr. Seward gave me a note to Presi
dent Lincoln, and the following day 1
called on the President He said he
did not know much about vessels,
leave fiat-boots, but he agreed to meet
jme the next day with the Board oi
Naval Commissioners. Well, at this
meeting President Lincoln heard a
great deal of adverse criticism oa the
part of the naval officers, but he said
ithat the idea reminded him of the ex
pression of the girl who. when she
put her foot in her stocking, said:
There's something in it." Then 1
(requested the board to mako a favor

vessel constructed from the plana.
Two were in favor and one was op
posed, -and I could not persuade him to
consent. I was rather discouraged
and I saw but one way to secure adop
tion of tho plan, and that was to bring
Ericsson before the board. I left
.Washington for New York that night
jl saw Ericsson tho next morning, and,
,by tho way, I was admitted by a ser
vant girl, Ann, who has been in Mr.
Ericsson's service from that time until
the present I succeeded in perauad
lng him to break his vow and return
'with me to Washington, telling him
'that all that I believed was in the way
of the acceptance of the plan was the
fact that one of the members of the
board did not think that ho under
stood the idea well enough to give It
his approbation. So Mr. Ericsson re
'turned with me, and under the in
fluence of the man's enthusiasm and
'eloquence the board became convinced
'of the feasibility of the project and
i gave it their hearty approval. Thus

When Hogarth was at work upon his

tells us that calling once upon Thor

greatly depressed. He had lately fin
ished his "Christ" for Copenhagen,
and he believed that his genius had
reached its full height and must now
begin to decline "I have never be

with any of my works. I am satisfied
with this, and shall never have a great
idea again." George Eliot said that
she had never finished a novel without
throwing aside her pen in the despair
ing belief that she could never write
another line. "Great God! What a

THE WHITE GRUB.
This creature has a history, briefly,
as follows: The egg which is to pro
duce tho larva is deposited in the
ground by the mother bug in the lat
ter part of May or early June, after a
few weeks is developed, but during
that season is little noticed; the next
season is its chief destructivenesa. At
the decline of this second season it
takes on the aurelia state and so re
mains through the winter months and
until May or June of the next year,
when it is developed into the perfect
insect and goes forth on wings as did
its predecessor, and becomes the pro
genitor of another generation. The
synopsis of this is: One year for the
deposit of the egg, another for the de
velopment of the grub and a third for
the coming forth and maternal duties
of the flying insect
Now tho question arises, how can we
take advantage of its inherent charac
teristics so as in a measure to avoid its
devastations upon our growing
crops, particularly, in this exposi
tion, tho strawberry f The parent
deposits its eggs in some field of
growing vegetation preferably grass
so that tho young larvae will have
roots to live on. A barren field will
have no charms for a creature like
this; hence a newly plowed field, with
undeveloped vegetation at the time
when tho insect deposits its eggs in
the ground, will not be chosen; it
places its eggs in some grans field in
stead of a potato, corn, or other hoed
crop field. Thus it may be seen
why a field one year planted
is a safer place to set strawberry
plants in than a grass field. In the
grass field of last year, the eggs were
deposited and the grub partially de
veloped; this year thoso grubs will be
come fully developed, and their de
structive power fully devolopod also;
so that should one plow such a field,
and set strawberry plants this year,
the plants will be liable to damage,
because the worm, being already in
the field, must live on the strawberry
plant from the fact that there is noth
ing else there to live on.
One noteworthy phenomenon, cor
roborative of the above principles, was
observed two years ago in a straw
berry patch wherjB beets had been
raised the year before. In cultivating
the beets, three rows in the middle of
the piece were neglected and the weeds
allowed to grow; the strawberry plants
set where these weeds grew, were
more thaa half-killed by the white
grubs, but not one was touched by
them in any other part of the field.
In view of all this, are farmers to
set strawberry plants only upon "old
ground?" The conclusion is imper
ative that greensward is an unsuitable
place to attempt their cultivation. It
Is true that strawberries have been
to perfection on new-plowedjn
land, but no person is safe ia at.

But yet the grub is not always fjEfefeb
lifie; some seasons there is scsr y:
dearth of them that that their deare. ot
dations would be of minimum PTLos
tance; hence, were a greensward sr
adapted to strawberry growth, the
need be ne fear of failure, but unusukin
painsmust be taken with it to ias5abs
a fair yield of berries, hence it wou i to
be advisable to plant invariably upjtg,
