FARM, GAR1JES A!JI HOUSEHOLD. . The t'ge ofPnrl Green. The danger resulting from the use of the pari green for destroying potato bug exists only froj carelessness in handling it, when, if it is breathed or permitted to penetrate sores or -wounds upon the skin, some trouble mny ensue. So far, although the poison has been used for several years, and thousands of tons have passed through farmers' hands, there has been no single case of the accidental poisoning of any person by it reported. Neither are the pota toes at all affected injuriously by the poison. It is insoluble and cannot en ter into the snbstance of tbe plant, and it is not until it is used at the excessive rnte of nine hundred pounds per acre that it has boen found to interfere ia the slightest degree with any vegetation. As butfour pounds per acre is lieoessary for an extreme case of urgenysrheu the beetles are very numerous, the ap prehension of danger to the crop is to tally unwarranted.

There were few prettier pictures than thaf, disclosed in the old rectory garden 01 tbnt bright winter morning. Tip toe, li.-r arms raised to a branch of glowing hi illy, her golden hair falling from her face over her sealskin jacket, and her violet eyes sparkling, was May West leigb, the rector's daughter ; while within ft few feet of her, watching her efforts with much amusement and a vast amount cf admiration, stood Thomas Mildmay, a handsome young muscular Christian, attired in a tweed Buit and felt hat. Suddenly, the latter burst forth "It is the reotor'e daughter, And she nan grown so dear, bo dear, That I would be the jewel That trembles in her esr." "Don't be absurd, Tom," interrupted the lady.

The editor of the Democratic orgnn In the county in which Governor Hayes resides anys: "I don't believe in Hayes politically, and fdinn't vote for him, but he's a square man, and will, if elected, make an honest Presi dent."

The temperature of the Kennebec Valley has been almost as severe as in the Middle States.

The tonic effect of the salt uir is strongly commended by his physician. Ho hopes within the next week to have Mr. Blaine re moved to the coast, some forty mil...

FIRM, GARDES AXI HOUSEHOLD. Pennonnblfi lllntn. Constant ruUiyntion is very important for corn. No oilier shows so much bone fit from it. Our plan is to cultivate on the level, going cloro to the rows. If there are many weeds in the rows be tween the stalks, we throw a little earth to the plants to Bmotber the weeds. Afterward, if necessary, this soil may be leveled with the hoe at the last weeding. Hilling corn is not, as some farmers thir.k, needed to steady the plants. Potatoes suffer more from weeds than any other crop. One weed will take tip and evaporate a good deal of moisture from the soil, and rob the crop of what it greatly needs. The loss of moifitnre is not often thought of in considering the effect of the weeds, but it i.i very im portant. When too late to be killed by cultivation, the weeds should bo hand pulled. Peas and oats, grown for fodder, may be cut with the reaper if they have not lodged. Otherwise the best plan is to out them with the scythe, not as grass is m...
