To light for moment, the world weary heart?
Like sweet summer floorers,
When coaae chilling showers,
From Autum's cold breath their beauties
The hopes thst we cherish,
How fleeting! they perish,
We watch their fair colors that fade in the

From hearts bruised and sore,
And linger around the cjuill of the tomb.

In every true-born heart whether
glowing with the fanciful dreams of youth,
or the quiet memories ot age there is a
warm emotion awakened at the very name
of Our native Home the land where all
the hallowed associations of earlier days
are grouped the la id where mighty spir

many gnat men rise from the

so many young men exchange the peace
ful pleasures of the fireride for the dan

timent, urging th-f war lor on to deeds of
valor, ivrving his arm to ''do and dare."
Yet, it is not strange, for who does not
love their mother land the ideal of all
that is beautiful and iruetbeaweet home
that first sheltered the young bead the
glorious bills that fust met the eye the
grand old trees under whqso cool shade
many a happy hour has been dreamed

This fair, frail structure whose name
sounds more harmonious than strains from

Our daughters are equal to any "dark

Lucid Manure Tkyma. Wo take
the following from tho Western. Rural:
As liquid manure ia exceedingly vboinr
cial to dl vegetables! plenty of it should
always be available, and without a liquid
manure tank this cannot be obtained.
For large gardens, a tank should be built
exactly like a cistern : the brhska
ting through the anil, and also to keep
surface water from entering the tank by
tiledruii.s from the stable, byre, kitchen,
etc., and may be taken out by a pump. i
In small gardens a hogshead or large cask
of any kind that nil itold water, uiay bo
unk in the ground, and will answer on a
small scale. In this, soot, guano, etc.,
may be converted into a valuable manure
by dissolving them in a suitable propor
tion of water. Manure is much more
readily taken np by the roots of plants
when to solution than wheu in a solid
state. In fact, solid manure has to bo
disoolved before it can -enter the sponge
