Who vet- hath found the secret place That refuge in the dim. cool shade. Where flees and hides the laughing maid ? \V happy poet who may guess The ever-changing loveliness; The lightsome grace, the airy wiles Wherewith coy nature masks her , smiles, And stealing on her unaware, . 13. -hold her when she is most fair! O'uit O quit this mortal frame, —James B. Kenyon.

FARMING WITH DYNHMITE. I . Although the experiment, up to the present, does not seem to have been tried in this country, farmers in the United States are rapidly adopting the idea of 'farming with dynamite. Special explosives in the form of sticks, which are perfectly sale to handle so long as common sense is displayed, are prepared for the pur pose. The method is as follows : — Holes are drilled vertically into the ground, and the stick or cartridge, excepting its length of fuse, which projects a few feet above the surface of the ground, is slipped in. The hole is then filled with soil, which is rammed down tightly with the aid of a wooden rammer, the fuse is lighted, and all retire until the blast has done its work. The system, says the World's Work, has come into extensive vogue for ploughing fields deeply- The men advance one behind the other in rows so many feet apart, and at regu lar intervals the charges are tamped home. When the cartridges have been laid, the men proceed acr...
