A Sagacisas Farmer. Along the banks of the Cape Fear River iu North Carolina are lowlands behind -which lies a. higher level or bench. The lowlands are subject to more or less frequent overflow by freshets, which are destructive to crops. A number df years ago a farmer, resid ent in the vicinity, made a very com fortable sum of money by insuring bis neighbours' crops against ' time freshets. His unvarying success as an insnrtr was for many years a profound rny6tf;y to the people of the region. The years when he declined to insure were invarinbly years of destructive overflow. The years when he was williug to insure were equally certain to be seasons of exemption from disaster. Iu the earlier days iu Eup laud this tnau'a reading of the future would have brought him some uu pleasant experience as a dabbler if not an adept in the black art.
