WE PRESENT to our renders iu this issue a list of the premiums to be given at the Fair to be held in tins county, commencing the 29th of August next . A casual glance at said list will show an increase in the premiums as well as in the varieties of things for which t hey are offered over that of last vear. These facts speak for themselves. They prove, we think, that the officers who have control of the Fair consider it not only a permanent institution, but that they intend to make it a progressive one. The premiums, of course, though, are not now as large .as the authorities under whose supervision the Fair is held wish them; but the interest in the Fair in thi...

WORDS OF STRENGTH. There sure three lessons I would write. Three words, as with a burning pen. In tracings of eternal light, Upon the hearts of men. Have hope. Though clouds environ now, And gladness hides Iter face in scorn. Put thou the shadow from thy brow— No night but hath its morn. Have faith. Where'er thy hark fs. driven,The calm's .disport, t lie .tempest's mirth— Know this: (Jod rates the hosts of heaven, The inhabitants of earth. Have love. Xot love alone for love, Unt man as man thy brother call, And scatter like the circling sun, Tliy charities on all. Thus grave these lessons on thy sou-1, Hope, Faith and, Love, and thou shalt . , . find ■ Strength when life's surge rudest roll, Light, when thou else wort blind. —[Frederick Schiller.

Soft radiance noy her throne illumes, As silently her sway she assumes; . She turns the darkness of the night, AVith silver fringes, into light, And brings to view the-flowers fair, With drooping heads of beauty rare. Their robes of orange, red and blue She lightens with a lovelier hue Than e'en the richest of them dare To boast amid the sunlight glare. And dancing waters sparkle now. As wave to wave its head does bow, And sing and murmur as they flow In happy concert.to and froThe placid lake her bosom shows, And looks serene with which it glows, Soft moonlight only can bestow On anything the heavens below.

pougjltctfl Poultry in Large Flocks. For a given amount of capital in- vestedthere is more profit in poul- try when rightly managed than anything else on the farm. It is well-known, however, that small flocks pay a greater proportional return than larger ones. This is partly because small flocks receive more attention, and partly because fowls will not thrive when kept together in large numbers. In venturing into the poultry business beginners should understand that if it is intended to keep the fowls in larger flocks, even when well attended, bountifully fed, and the full range of the farm given, success cannot be assured. This experiment lias been tried over and over again, and to-day there is but one farm in the United States devoted to poultry in large numbers, and that is oue conducted on a different plan from that to which farmers are accustomed. Poultry raising should be encouraged. It can be so managed as to give light employment to women and children, and is within the reac...

||ftiiwi Miami § jpwtmcai. SHEEP Hl SIIASDRY. tn the future of America, tins in.flustry irlust have an important position; and nil essential element of success 11111 st be an intelligent knowledge of the business of handling sheep. Having this knowledge, a clear and intelligent knowledge of the markets will be necessary.— From onr standpoint, wo cannot see a success in sheep husbandry except through the two products, wool and mutton. We are not now discussing the breeding of fine breeds for breeding purposes, but that, of breeding for the butcher and manufacturer. This branch of sheep husbandry is of interest to every fn-nur , and ought to be. A small flock of sheep is easily handled, and almost always healthy. A flock of twenty-five to fifty good common ewes, and a good thoroughbred ram, of the English mutton breeds, would always be a source of profit. And the boys, as they grow up with such a flock, would become shepherds to handle larger flocks, if desired. Under this system, the...

§ epitweat. TIIR MOOS'R ISFUEXCE. , In your issue of April 1, my attention was arrested by an article from an '-Old New Yorker on Plautfug in the Moon." With all due deference to Mr. Emily's notions about sowing and planting -in the moon," I must confess to a little astonishment at the idea, especially of a New Yorker in the nineteenth century. Now. if it bad come from some slow-going, old Dutchman of Somerset county, Pennsylvania, fifty years ago, it would not be so astonishing. I am a descendant of a Pennsylvania Dutchman, oue who paid great attention to signs, the influence of which stuck to me for many years, yet without the slightest evidence of their utility. I would not, I dare not treat my deceased parent nor his beliefs with disrespect; for 1 verily believe that, with all his credulity about the moon, he lived an innocent and honest life; died a Christian; and is numbered with t he blest; yet I am thoroughly cured of all belief in signs. I have given some of the more promin...
