Of course people who have lived side by side by side together, nre much in the condition of married people who have to give and take, ns tho saying is, if they expect to get along comfortably. Much annoyance is often endured iu this way, and very often to the extent of one party feeling that ho has to do all tho taking, whilo the giving all comes from tho other sido. In all annoyances of this kind it re quires a good deal of cool command of one's self to get along well, and much moy bo dono by the aggrieved party doing something himself to keep out in truders, when that something does not cost too much time and labor to do.

The mountain at Erio has labored and brought forth a ridiculous result. The Dcmocrauy of Pennsylvania have nominated for Governor and State Treasurer Pershing and Piolctt, and adopted a pusillanimous pla'form. We pay pusillanimous for the reason that the majority in the Convention were pronounced expansionists, and were clamorous in and out of place for more money, until the "expediency" element in organization compelled them to take to cover.

FARM, GARPEX AND HOUSEHOLD Illnm nbont Work. Wheat roquirwt a better Boil than rye, aud where the noil is not good enough to yield at least fifteen bushels of wheat to the acre, it would be better to sow rye, which might brio twenty-fire or thirty bushels. It is useless to sow the more delicate white wheats, except in the very best soils. The timber and red wheats are safer to sow on medium and light soils. The past has been a wet summer, and there will be few complaints of a soil too dry for sowing. Fields not yet plowed should be turned over at once, and harrowed thoroughly until the soil is well settled. A linn, mellow soil is needed for wheat or rye. Mowing by drill is the safest method. The saving of seed will nearly pay for the use of the drill. Drills may be hired for fifty cents nn acre or less. The next best manner of sowiug, is to broadcast the seed, and cover with a cultivator. If the seed is sown broadcast, the ground should be rolled thoroughly after being harrowed. Dri...

At various times we have pointoel out to our readers the profits resulting from covoring mnnnro, instead of allowing it to get soaked by the rains or dried by the sun, as is genorally done. We have given this mlvieo from what we have actually peeu. When rough sheds have been built to cover the manure-heap, the crops fertilized by this pilo have been increased in productiveness sufficient to pay for the shed-covoriug the first year. We have never soon any exact figures of the proportionate value of covorod ma nures thnt wo remember, until the fol lowing, which we find by Lord Kincaid, a Scotch land-owner and farmer.
