iEoLiAN Harp. This instrument
which gives forth such sweet music,
should be "placed in the window of
every man's house. Its"mutterings"
will do more to harmonize the soul
than any other thing that can be de
vised. The seolian harp consists of a
long, narrow box of very thin deal,
about five or six inches deep, with a
circle in the middle of the upper side
of one and a half inches in diameter,
in which is to be drilled small holes.
On this side seven, ten, or more
strings of very fine j;ut are stretched
over' bridges at each end, like the
bridge of a'fiddle, and .erewed up or
relaxed ; with sere w-p iiis."-Th e strings
must all be tuned to one and thesame
note, and the instrument placed in
some current of air where tje wind
can pass over itsstrings with freedom.
For instance, a window of which the
width is exactly equal to the length of
the harp.' with the sash just raised to
give the air admission, is a proper sit
uation ; when the air blows upon these
strings with different degrees of force,
it will excite different tones of sound.

Hence an amount of money is lavished on

among the ton in society, they must main
tain their position at every cost. The
pressure of the times compels them to
work for salaries varying from five to
fifteen: dollars . per week. In the 'season'
they must atteud the 'society club,' the
'German, the, party, the ball, tho opera,
the theatre. If the-yenng. man expects to

cost of white kids and extras to adorn lu

Pea Vises as a Fertilizer. rOur great
reliance for restoring and increasing the fer
tility of the soil must be in the growing 6f
renovating crops, with special reference tp
hat object. For this purpose the com
mon cow-pea is most convenient and best
adapted to the purpose. Several corres
pondents testify to the most satisfactory re
sults from turning under luxuriant crops of
pea-vines. Qf the speckled pea and ether
early varieties, two crops maj be grown in
one season. It is claimed by high authori
ty that it is not necessary to torn under the
vines, but after the crop of-riie peas is
gathered, the vines may be allowed, to die
and decay on the surface, with equal ad
vantage as if plowed under; thus avoiding
the injury to the soil which results from ex-
J-posing it by plowing, to the heat of sum
mer. Farmers are advised to make ex per
iments and report resalts. "
