The totra lies asleep in the shadow, The hilltops and moonbeams have kissed, And the up-peeping eyes of the meadow Are hid by the veil of the mist "With eyes all too busy to slumber, I wander abroad but to see If, by counting the stars, I can number The charms of my fair, ' "With sunny-hued hair. The charms of my Bonnie Marie. I couDt till my eyes dim with longing, But never my task Is complete, Till I bask in the charms that are thronging, Like star-beams aslant at her feet.

9 K i A ; ) v j X RESTORING FERTILITY. The Most Certain and Rapid Means of Im proving Kxbaustrtl Laud. Every farmer knows the value of a grass aud clover sod for plowing in as manure. We have been educated to this knowledge from our first acquain tance with the work of a farm. Sod is always considered as the natural ground for a crop of corn, and, where corn is not grown, wheat is sown on a sod turned under in the summer and left to lecay until seeding time. Aud not only practice but science teaches us this. "The results of hundreds of experiments Tjy the most careful experimenters in tiie field and in the laboratory all go to prove the truth and soundness of the common practice. Grass is an exhaustive crop and clover is still more so. While clover is not a grass, yet as it takes the place of grass in the actual work of a farm, and is to all intents and purposes grown for the same object as grass is, we will bcre consider it in the light of a grass and merely distinguish it by name....
