.A COMMON FATE. ChIldren twain In the woods at play, Taking no heed of the passhig hours, Loitering homeward at close of day, Rich with their treasures of fruits and flowers, A boy, who walks with a bearing bold; A girl, who moves with a quiet mein, He is wishing they both were old, She s count ing the yearis between. A maiden and youth, as the shadows fall, Wandering down by the brooklet's flow; Hearts that answer to passion's call; Lives thatare gladdened by hope's fai. glow; Eyes that brighten, and checks that flush; Earnest pleadings and timid speech; Whispered words in the sumset hush, Binding for evermore each to each. A lonely man with a weight of care, Growing heavier, day by day, A jeweled bracelet, a tress of hair; Relics of one who has passed away. Childhood the web of its fancy weaves, Youth takes ever a hopeful tone; ,Comes the shadow of death, and leaves Manhood to sit by Its hearth alone. [For the Messenger. MR. EDITOR: Notwithstanding the season has been, and is stil...

Plowing im Green Crops. The cheapest and most certain way of improving worn out land, says the "Rural Messenger," is to 1)ow in green crops to rot upon and pulverize the soil. The process of rotting acts mechanically as well as chemically, and thus' the soil is benefitted by the direct addition of fertilizing elements, and by being mide easier to cultivate. This work may be commenced now, and continued until frost, #r as long as there is anything green to plow under. Land that h.as produced a good covering of grass may be de tended u pon to produce a fair crop next year, if all the grass is care fully plowod in and rotted npon the soil. If the grass were let alone to die and decay on the land, something would be added to it, certainly, but not a tithe the ben efit wonld be derived as is secured by plowing and rotting the vegeta ble matter in the soil. The fer mentation produced by dceay of green matter acts very favorably on the land, pulverizing it, filling it with life-giving nitr...
