Take Enough Sleep Said one of the oldest and most successful farmers in the State: "I do not care to have my men get up before five or halfpast .five in the morning, and if they go to bed early and can sleep soundly, they will do more work than if they get up at four or half-post" We do not believe in the eight hour law, but nevertheless, are inclined to think as a general rule, we work too many hours on the farm. The best man we ever had to dig ditches, seldom worked, when digging by the rod, more than nine hours a day. And it is so by chopping wood by the cord; the men who accomplish themost,workthefewest hours. They, bring all their brain and muscle in¬ to exercise, and make every blow tell. A slow, plodding Dutchman may turn a grindstone or a fanning mill better than an energetic Yankee, out this kind of work is now mostly done by horse power, and the fanner needs, above all else, a clear head, with all hb faculties of mind and muscle light; active and under temperament;...

Cancer.—The fact was not long ago noticed that a diplomatic agent of the United States had brought to the attention of the State Department the snpposed value of the cunderango plant, which grows in Ecuador, ' in the cure of cancer, In referring to the fact at the time, we expressed a hope that the anticipations raised by the reported remedy would not, as in so many other instances of alleged cure of cancer, proved illusory. The doubt thus intimated has been confirmed by the result of a very thorough in¬ vestigation at Washington as 'to the virtues of a few specimens of the plant which has been received, The report or the army surgeons is against efficacy of that substance. Thus far cancer secioa to bo incurable, and few have any idea of its prevalence. Dr. Bliss, under whose charge the examinations at Washington have chiefly been, has startled the whole country by a statement deduced from inquiries made that there are one hundred thousand cases of cancer annualy in this country...

Improved Paemins.—The Cambridge ChronieU says of the recent attempts of the farmers of Dorchester , at market gardening: The result is astonishing. One man sells the apricots'from a single tree in his yard realizes $46. Another puts down two acres of comparative poor land in strawberries, and clears 8800 the first season. Another picks the blackberries growing wild pn his form, and realizes a little over $100—enough to pay his entire tax for the year. In conversation with one of the most intelligent and enterprising farmers of New Market district a few days ajjo, he told us that a neighbor of his in stiff clay ground had, from the sale-of small fruits ana vegetables,- cleared more this season up to this time than his entire parcel of land would have brought in mrrket five years ago. ^ . An exchange says, editors and chickens have to scratch for a living; and pretty lively scratching most of them make of it in order to keepsmiarc with the world.

SMILE AND BECOMES™ The world grows old, and men grow cold To each, while seeking treasure, Ahd what with want, and care, and toil We scarce have time for pleasure; But never mind, that is a. loss Not much to be lamented ' ; Life rolls ongaily, if we will But smile and bo contented. If we were poor, and would be rich, It will not be by piningi . No, steady hearts and hopeful minds Are life's bright silver lining. There's ne'er a man that dared to hope, Hath of his choice repented; The happiest souls on earth are those Who smile and are contented. '. When grief, doth come to rack the heart And fortune bids you sorrow, From hope we may a blessing read, And consolation borrow; If thorns miay come and ' roses bloom, It cannot . be bre vented; So make the best of life you can,,. And smile and be contented.
