A DYING WIFE TO HER HUS
BAND. The follow ing and beautiful and touch
ing extracts are taken from a letter writ
ten by a dying wife to her husband,
which was found by him, some time af
ter her death, between the leaves of a re- j
ligious volume, which she was very fond
of eTusing. The letter, wbieh was lit-
eaallyXim with t(,,ir marks, was written
long before the husband was aware that
the era"!1 f a fatal disease had fastened
upon the lovely form of his devoted wife,
who, died, it is stated,, at the early age of
nineteen. It shows how fathomless is the
depth of a true woman's affectfom :

REMINISCENCE OF A VIRGINIA
A Washington letter-writer classes
among the moat hand: ome ladies in that
city Madame Dodesdad, wife of one of
tbe Secretaries of the Spanish Legation,
and adds :
"This lady is also an American. She
was a Miss (.'hapiimii, of Virginia. Her
mother was a Miss Mary Randolph, a
great belle in Virginia many years ago.
This Miss Randolph was especially noted
for her fearlessness in riding. On one
occasion, it is said when staying at the
Warm Springs, in Virginia, she started
out with a riding party for the Warm
Spring Mountain, and dared the gentle
men accompanying her to do whatever
she did. The mountain is quite high, and
has at its top a rock jutting out over a
precipice. Tbe the extreme verge of this
rock Miss Randolph rode to the great
consternation of her friends She did not'
even 1 avc iter horse room to turn round,
but, having accomplished her purpose,
she backed bim from the dangerous posi
tion and faced tbe rest of the party in
trinmph. Not a man would follow her
example, hut one youthful piece of ii ex
perience stood on his head in hisAaddle
and dared the fiidf to do that. Of course
she cried quits." ;

"Ooivo into Debt." In a resent

with many ojf anoaarh to know better.
mcrcmui. anu manufacturer wtiose life is
an incessant srrugghj with pecuniary dif
ficulties, who is driven to constant "shin
ing," end who, from month to month,
barely evades that insolvency which
sooner or later overtakes most men in
business ; so that it has been computed
that but one in twenty of them achieves a

lPccun,arv success, lot my own part
and I speak from sad experience - I
would rather be a convict iu a State pris
on, a slave in a rice swamp than to pass
through life under tba harrow of debt.
Let co man misjudge himself unfortunate
or truly poor, so long as he has the full
use of his limbs and faculties, and is sub
stantially free from debt. Hunger, cold,
rags, hard work, contempt, suspicion, un
just reproach, are disagreeable ; bat debt
is infinitely Morse than them all ; and if
it had pleased God te spare either or all
of my sons to be the suppoit of my de
clining years, the lesson' which I should
most earnestly sought to impress upon
them is, never to run into debt ! I re
peat, my friends, avoid pecuniary obliga
tions as you would pestilence and fam
ine. If you have but fifty cents and can
get no mors for a week, buy a peck of
corn, parch it and live ou it rather than
owe any man a dollar ! Of course, I
know that some men must do business
that involves risks, and must often give
notes and obligations, and I do not con
sider bim really in debt who can lay his
hand directly on the means of paying at
some little sacrifice, all he owes ; 1 speak
of real debt, that which involves risk or
sacrifice, on tbe one side, obligation and
dependence on tbe other, and 1 say, from
all such, let every youth humbly pray
God to preserve him evermore !

The judge, af tor laying down the law

Thirty minutes or more elapsed, when

As the foreman seemed to bejytc.,.ko

'Mr. Foreman, have you found a ver

'It's a very plain case,' naid the Judge.
'Can't help it, massa, couldn't see it,'
replied ebony again.
'On what grounds,' inquired the Judge.
'We didn't look into ihe grounds, Mar

Grape Growing The Exptrienee of
Practical wen. At the annual conren--..,
tion of grape growers of New York State,
the subject of planting and pruning
grapes came in for a share of the discus
sion, and the facts brought out showed
that the system of long pruning and leav
ing more wood than advisable to leave
during tbe summer, resulted in producing
ripened fruit before any other. The sha
ding of the leaf upon the cluster was ah
advance which prevented sun burning.
The leaf is to the vine aa the lungs are
te. the body, and the taking away oi tho
leaf , produces disease in the root. The
method of summer pruning, as punned
by the German growers, was shewn to
ultimately result in diseases to the vines.
Grapes have better flavor by being sha
ded. The proper system to pursue, ac
cording to European viniculturists, is to
let the vine run along the ground for a
distance of fifteen or twenty feet before
training it np the trellis. It was stated i
that vines were seriouly injured by mu
tilating the roots in plowing, and that it
was advisable to use only a hoe km an im
plement of cultivating-the ground at the
roots Grape-vines sometimes extend
fifteen feet iu a perpendicular course
Over cropping was said to be almost snre
to prevent grapes from ripening, though
instances were where such was not the
