" For the Old X'irth State "WHAT ARE LIFES PLEASURES. What are life's pleasures. Vanishing treasures, Gleaming awile then passing away; Like waves of the ocean, When Oiled with commotion Still hurrying oaward the white-foaming spray. What are life's dreams, . That bring sonny gleams To light for moment, the world weary heart? Like sweet summer floorers, When coaae chilling showers, From Autum's cold breath their beauties depart The hopes thst we cherish, How fleeting! they perish, We watch their fair colors that fade in the bloom ; Ami sorrow-tears flow, From hearts bruised and sore, And linger around the cjuill of the tomb. Ah! life's fleeting pleasured Ah, vftrishirtg treasures I - . Ah, why do we w eep to see ,epari I A. el bore tfiuinf bestl Why leav'st these shadows to heart t We lift the lyht gaute, d at ken the And lilting we patue, Light from "the Beyond" our spuits oe r flow; Then stieam onward go, We'll soon reach the shore WUenrrest many pilgiims, The life's drealns are o'er.

"OUR SUNNY SOU I'HERN HOME.' BY C A 1. 1.0 KG. 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 its of the past have lived and died, the bome onr forefathers left to our care and enotniif in t!s "eiecf or Tn8"fiarf:' ")Libf; w hy do we see so many brave brave spir-ita-so many gnat men rise from the rhombic walks ot life to w in highest hon ors on the held o! battle T Else, why do so many young men exchange the peace ful pleasures of the fireride for the dan gers of war ? It must be a powerful sen 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 a ay. The beautiful blue sky above, t iat first awakened a wonderful admira tion iii the young mind ; and a thousand other" familiar sceues " aud objects en deared by fond recollections. ( h ! pur Sunny South, it is a beantifnl land to live in! The outh with its warm nassimtate hearts, full of snushiue and love ! Turn whither so ever you will, it is a sunny land, well meriting the poetic memories clustering about it 1 With its low-lviug. eracefnj hills, geutle ilopes, and shadowy valleys, it is dear to every Southern child. To other) it may appear eold and devoid of beauty ; but to heart horn and nurtured imiinir its hills and vallcva. it is the personation of nr and h'ipim country. A.

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 like months of the root. tar mer' s Home Journal. Bio Head may be cared with very little trouble.

The best plan wo ever tried for managing stable manure. sayp the Southern Liutwator, is to have statjlea on elevated. grmA egi'riicw erouno, and allow the manure to accnm late for a year never handling until yoi are ready to apply it to the land. If tho stalls are not too small, (and a good sup- piy oi niter is useu,j mey win remain, sufficiently dry for the comfort of ahi raals the manure will be kept just moist enough, and be tramped down sufficient ly to allow slow, regular decomposition to go on. Very little of the vduable gasea w ill escape--to insure against this, it ia only necessary to sprinkle the stalls occa sionally with plaster. A Receipt to Cl ue Rixgboxm nr Horses, which has bekw Sold ko Thirty Doi.LAHS.-Take one pint r tanner's oil, half a pint of spirits of tur. pentine, two ounces of verdigris previous ly dissolved in half a pint of vinegar, and two ounces oil of spike.
