Mistier grows ths air,
Still the thick clouds gather
Darkening here and there,
From their heavy fringes
Pour ther drops amain
Still ths bird is swinging,
Singing in the rain.

To a dove transfigured,
Bringing oliv leaves,
Olive leaves of promise,

its popularity Is unbounded
This grass is a crop which has never
failed. Wet or dry-cold or hot it has
been a good heavy crop ; even last season,
corn dropped hit strong arms, and roll
ed up his green banners in the dry bi
blasts, h's more humble neighbor the
Hungarian grass spread its rich green
mantle over the parched soil, and shot up
its luxuriant blades, and waved its golden
heads triuinphnntly, in spite of dry winds
and rainless skies. In point of ctrlainly
we have no crop which compares to it : it
seems to be exactly adapted to our loose,
deep, prairie soils, and is perhaps, a bel
ter crop in Iowa than in iis native soil in
the country of the Magyars, lne secret
of its successs lies in iu strong vitality,
stout roots and adaptation to a dry soil.
The roots of our common domestic grass
es are too short and blender to reach be
low the influence of our dry, hot summers,
while this production, from its great vig
or and large roots, can pierce below the
reach of draught, and draw up the treas
ures of feitility which lie beneath.
The only objection which can be urged
againbt it, as a hay crop, is, that it must
be put in every year ; but the immense
yeild certainly, and nutritive qualities,
more than compensate for this disadvan
tage ; it is not at all likely that we will
soon find a perennial grass which will
at all compare with it in these particulars.
Iu appearance, the Hungarian Grass
resembles milett ; and it no doubt belongs
to the same family ; but it is much more
productive ; it affords a better provender,
and the seed is more oily and nutricious
As hay r. is superior to Timothy, that
old and substantial favorite with every far
mer. Horses changed from timothy and
corn to Hungarian, begin to thrive, on
half the usual allowance of corn, and put
on that fine glossy coat so much admired
by stock growers.
It is not the hay alone which gives val
ue to this crop ; it produces seed at the
rate of twenty or thirty bushels to the acre,
which in nutritive qualities is much supe
rior to Oats; it is heavier, and contains a
large amount of oil. In truth, the crop is
better than a crop of oats and timothy put
As an evidence of the popularity of this
crop it may be mentioned that the price
of seed has sleadly advanced for the last
In the spring of IS65 it could not be
sold at any price, except by the quart or
gallon ; next season the price was $'J,6U;
and last season it started at the same
price, but soon reached three dollars
then four, and next five, with the supply
exhausted, although there was no demand
for it outside the circle of its growth.

Outdoor Exercise and Recrb atiom.
Some few weekt since, the London
7'tmei published an article on the relative
degree of health and longevity of the
people oi ureal urua in ana tne unuca
States, in which the superiority of the
former country in both respects was
broadly asserted. The writer attributed
the dwindling of the American race, as
he pleased to term it, to the endemical
diseases of yellow and other fevers with
wmcn poruons oi our coamry aro unnap-
pily amu'ted, and to tne impropriety in
the manner of living. To the latter more
than to the former cause is owing! we
think, the results mentioned. The errors
in this respect commence with the child.
Instead of giving such an education as

by constant outdoor exercise, it is coufined
in a close nursery and subjected to a mode

er one. 1 he frame is at tne outset inaae
week and puny ; and habits are engen
dered and diseases contracted which cling
to it during the time when verging lo
wards what should be a maturity of
strength and beauty, which it never reach'
es. And thus in the very morning of
life, when the sensations have the untir
ing activity which novelty begets, the
mind is, through a lack of vigor and de-
velop-nent of the body, filled with languor,
dejection and despair, and diverted from

in view the increased physical strength
and more mature judgment. These ex-
erases should take place daily, and as
much as possible in the open air. and

should constitute one of their most impor
