Protecting Animals from Ram-Storms, I believe that farmers generally are . not aware, now much loss they sustain in the flesh of, their domestic animals, and how much they suffer during cold storms of rain in the Summer, or at any other season of the ¦ year.' Warm showers- never injure animals; indeed; they appear to Have ' a good relish for such, a sprinkling as they frequently get, provided it is not-as coldasice. Most> animals will endure pretty severe cold, as longi as they can keep dry; but as soon' as' their bodies have been wet, and are kept wet, evaporation commences; and as evaporation is a cooling process, the heat of their bodies is carried away very rapidly; and the-sudden transition from heat to cold chills them in a very short time, and injures' them more than a severe storm in Winter. Animals will endure a very sudden change _fromtcold to heat, with impunity; but sud--den changes -from heat to cold are often attended with very serious consequences.' We are ...

Fall Planting. Autumn, we think, as a .general rule, is the best time > to plant hardy trees and shrubs. There are several _thingd that make it the/best tinie. A,better _se lection of trees can be made,then than in the Spriqg.

Trees that ' are a little tender, perhaps, are more apt to be injured the first Winter, if transplanted i,n the Autumn, than, if they are removed ,in the Spring, and have the advantage of a Summer's growth.

SELECT READING ' r ' |!^w^^i ' '6p'; '!FKbELiii^^Ne_^f; forsake a friend. When enemies gather around j when sickness fails on the heart; when the world is dark and cheerless, is the time to try true friendship. They who turn from the seene of distress betray their hypocrisy, and prove that interest, only moves them. If you have a friend who loves you, who has studied your interest and Happiness, be sure to sustain him in adversity. Let him feel that his former kindness is appreciated, and; that his love was not thrown away. Real fidelity may be rare, but it exists—in the heart. They only deny its worth and power who never loved a friend, or labored to make a friend happy. A Coming Eternity.—And Paradise, Paradise lost, is awaiting you, and stands before you with unfolded gates, and time hasteneth past, and eternity prepareth itself to roll on forever. And the body loseth its strength for labor, and its relish for sensual things; and both haste to an end; and rest Cometh, and...
