I CLOVER! CLOVER!
A friend said to md recently. " In lirae-
s tone countries clover is eown to enrich
land ; throughout the Cotton j Sutes we
have to enricb the land before we can
groir cloveK" j
j My ?xpcrtence teaches that this is a
great mistake I am convinced tliat no
where Ion this continent can clover be
irrown it les expense and with greater
I reraitueration than on the clay lands of
I lie tooulli, at least as; tar bout h as the lati
tude of the City of Co!unibi;i,S. C. A
detail f a few experiments may not be
viiinieit'stiug to our readers. I
Ih Noveniber, 1S67, 1 sowed, eight acics
f old land iii barley and clover, manured
Vith .lwo hundred pounds of Soluble la
cific j Guano? jm r acre In JTnne, 1SC8, 1
reaped one tiuudicd and forty-five bush
i el? of bai ley and secured a beaut iiul stand
of clover on' about five acres. In May,
looy, twenty three heavy two horse lo,ads
of cjover buy were housed. The fill of
18G9 was so; dry the crop was pastured
oft' by cattle and sheep. The spring of
1S70, thougl; uncommonly dry, produced
a fair crop of clover; the fall crop was
again grazed off. Last May-; I mowed a
'beautiful crdp of hay, and in July a se
cond cuttings was housed for winter feed
ing ;of ifberpV In February, 1SG9, the
patch ws8 broadcast with a mixture of
eight. bags of Wando and six hundred
pounds plaster. '
Last January I turned over, with a two
horse Monitor plow, all of this iwentv-five
re h Id, but tbe five acres wi ll set in
clover, and ii April planted it in sorghum.
The three acres, upon which there was a
scattering stand of clover, has had, from
Its first appearance ubove ground, infin
itely f lie best sorghum in the field. Ann
why 1, Because the dead clover, the young
clover, at.d the roots of clover turned un
der hi iJauuary have manured the land,
j. Another experiment. In IS67 I sowed
4 cow:-penned patch of one and a half
acres in bailej and clover, and reported
upon : this patch in October and Novem
ber months, 18G9, of The Rcral. In
May, 1830, a very poor crop ras taken
from the patch, and in October last the
young clover was pastured off by sheep
till scarcely! a vestagn was apparentlv
f Jift. Immediately after the laud was
tV-rned over wjih a two horse Brinley,
followed by 'a two-horse' Muifee in same
fur low, and sown in a hestl. This land,
whicH) three yea 1 8 ago was a clay bank,
deemed nowj, a rich, friable, Hack soil,
vhich felt gure would pruduce a wheat
crop ; but I f eared the clover was gone.
Bo after baifrowiiig I sowed the tin face
witH orchar(l grass seed. The wheat and
grass came ftp well, but wlien I harvest
id in June tjie grass seemed choked out
by as luxnrjajk a growth f clover ns I
t-ver saw. nsVe the. seed came from I
can t tell, but theXci
crop is thore to show
for itself. I
I 1 bird cxperiiuent. I lrave Mated above
that the crop of the faliof' 1SG9 was pai
tured. During this tiruV the cattle and
sheep were housed every ight. and their
droppings sheltered until March, 1S70,
When they Were hauled out and th-owr
in furrows upon which beds weie made;
aiid the land planted in cotton. This last
spring, almost every one of those beds, for
several inches on either side of the row of
cotton Stalks was covered with a tli
growth of clover. Those nods were re
versed, and the land again planted in cod
ton.i At every woikinir of the not, lni
rijigjthe summer a young growth of clover
had Io be destroyed. i
I Fourth exjieriineiit. In April, 1S70,
sejleted a hlf acre of good gray land, so
thickly covered with nut grass that the
ground could not be seen, for a sweet pot a

Thought, as used here, ineaus auxicty.
When we separate Horn father aud mother
and set up for oui stives, we entertain this
question, how ebair we make a living ?
And included in Unit arc three important
questions: Wha: tiiall we tat I What
shall we drink ? and what shall we wear 7
Two of these are absolute wants. jWe
cannot live withoutWat and drink, and
for them we must, vjoik. The ravens will
not feed us, the sk will not drop down
manna; quails do not fall around ! our
camp nor do our meal-barrels ''-become
fountains of flour. The law is, that juau
must work it he eat and drink. f
The Sythiaus, who lived among the
snows, go without raiment ; w'.icn a cer
tain monarch asked one of them if he
was not cold, he replied, "Is not your face
cold ?" There are some South Ameri
can tribes who live without clothing; so
that is not an absolute warn. But this dis
use of clothing can ouly be with spotless
purity such as Adam and Eve hi tore the
lall, and the remote extreme of the lowest
barbarism. The question becomes impera
tive in civilized countries; our clothes do
not sprout out bt our bodies, like the robe
of the Polar bear or the variegated feathers
of the peacock.
As we advance in life, these questions
grow every day. Man multiplies himself.
At (iist he has only himselt to provide
for, then himself and wife; then himself,
wife and childreu; the more figures in the
sum the larger- the product; and as the
man grows old, peihaps weaker, he has
more mouths to feed and more bodies to
clothe. Accident may cripple him, and
what then will become of the bairns and
thegude witol Death cuts us all down,
and who then will take care of our fami
lies? Out of this iast fear has sprung
one of the greatest business interests of
the country. Life insurance Societies,
that build palaces to do their business in.
The net-work of life is anxiety. Meat,
drink, clothes, cover a wide territory, and
outside of this is evil. We have ;roubles
in our body, pains, aches, weakness and
weariness: troubles in cur soul, of i,.ia.
sion and conscience ; in the family, a de
luge of trouble from grown up sous and
daughters who disappoint our hopes ;
mortifications, humiliations; uumbeiless
things couie under this name, evil. It is
said that death makes equal the prince
and the beggar. Trouble also equalizes
them. There is a common wealth of suf
feiing. The poor man toils, eats, sleeps
and forgets his trouble; while the rich
man lolis on his bed through sleepless
nights, and perhaps commits suicide. 1 he
question is, how are we to meet these
The stoical cynic ppys : 'Troubles must
cme, I've got a littie grit, I'll clench
my teeth and bear it. If wife or children
should die, I'll not cry, I'll steal my heart
against it. 4What can't be cured must be
endured. " This is better than noiliii.r.
a given courage in it; u rude bar-
baric courage in it
in.ui, but it will not
him. When iho
wants to rer-
oi in an operation, lie throws a certain
flMul on the part affected, that produces
iutiHise cold, then the kuife can be applied
without pain. But ought man to become
a intinihA' and bury himself away in a
Sarcophagus of insensibility ? It is said
that some minor evils bring greater bene-
uts in their train ! In a certain part of
iiueria tne people are very poor and the
iiiti.-quiloes very thick; they build a
smothered fire around their houses, to
keep them away with the smoke. Cattle
will pu their heads into this smoke to

fruits, and spriukle the whole with ir
kinds of berries; with that Leap piled up

pile to a human -body I Christ said,!
"I've given you a life, I've given you a
bdy: if I've given you the greater goo
will 1 not add to it the lesser." Then hel
gives us an argument, from the J-saer la
greater. The sparrow don't gather iii-j
to barns, yet your heavenly father fcedclli
l hem." They can t. sow tho eggs that
will bring forth the worms which they?
have to ear. Jtirds work very hard tu
build a little nest. This summer in the
conntrj 1 noticed the swallows in liicj
chimney ; I was amazed to notice how
often the old bird came to briii tliein!
food. Thy work very hard, fly for railea
to get a littlle wcrm to carry to their!
young aud when the time comes theyj
fly far off to some sequestered place wherti
man never comes, and without fear tTioV
can build their nests and rear their youngi
The law of seed time and. harvest is no
law for them, aud Christ says, "Arc ye not
much better than they ?" The average
certainties of agriculture make us better,
off than the birds, yet in all t hi tigs they,
sing aud praise God by being happy and
cheeiful.' Can we not learn a lesson of
cheei fulness from them I As they fly in
undulating course at every climax of
these waves of flight, poised in the air
they chirp aud sing. Consider the lily.
Never did Solomon in all his glory have
so fine a garment as the lily. They toil
not neither do they spin. They do not
fret or worry. But the lily works and ncv-;
er intermits i s work until it dies; it sends

u STICK TO THE FENCE.
For Cfteea years daily, at Stamford,
Conn a roan has sat on fence sr. 4
watched every railroad train as it passcA.
He Is probably trying ta make up Lis
mind if it would be safe to ride in the
ears. Old fellow, you stick V that fence 1
If the top rail is sharp, turn it over or put
a eusLion on it. Fit up a smoking apart
ment on the next panel il you like, aod
rig a luxurious couch on the neit one la
thst. Bring cat your baggage, take a
check for it, and bang it on a post. . Bay
a ticket and punch it yourself. Ask your
self the distance to the next station, and
get intuited. Secure, as your means twill
permit, all tbe luxuries of railroad travel,
but don't get off that fence to enjoy them.
So shall you die a natural death, and tbe
good wife shall not expend the farm fight
ing the life Insurance companies over
your cold corpse. You're in the right o'
this thing, old rooster ! ' -
A PERPETUAL CANDLE.
The perpetual candle is the name of a
useful contrivance which bas lately been
introduced into this country from Bcscia.
It consists of a small tube, within which
is placed a close fitting wick, soaked with
kerosene. This tube is screwed into a
candlestick, and fits inside another tube
made of white china, and resembling
closely a caudle in external appearance,
ihe whole having the look of au ordinary
candle and candlestick. By beating the
top of tho brass tube the kerosene soaked
wick generates a gas and gives a fine
bUzc through a uu tuber of small sppcr-lurt-s
in the end of the tube. By this
simple and ingcoius arraugement, il is
said, a good light is furnished at a cost
ofouc cent for five boars. Betides tbe
point of economy, it is thought tbat the
ue of kneuc in this tuauncr will be
cutinly free from danger of explosion.
