Farm nud Garden Kotos. Keep no useless slock to eat up the profits. The average weight of milk is 8 5-8 lbs. per gallon. Clover grass is the cheapest feed grown for swine. Don't forget to use the roller on the cloddy wheat fields. In keeping a horse fat there is as much in thedriver as in the teed. Medium-sized sheepusually have the best and heaviest fleeces. Partners should pay more atten? tion to the fret of their horses thitn is their usual custom.

The Habit of W^stc. Said a most successful merchant a day or two si we to a lad who was opening a parcel, "Young man, un? tie those strings?don't cut them." It was the first remark he had made to a new employee. It was the first lesson for the lad to learn, and if involved the principle of suc? cess or failure in his business ca? reer. Pointing to a well dressed man of thirty years behind a conn tor, the merchant said: 'There is a man who always takes out bis seis sors and cuts the strings of a pack? age in thi ""! or four places. He is a good salesman, but never will be anything more. I presume he liv? es Irom hand to month, aud very likely is always more or less in debt, The trouble with him is that lie was never taught to save. 1 told the boy just now to untie the string instead of cutting it, not so mi:cli for the value of the string, as to reach him that everything must lie saved and nothing wasted.

What is Money* I The value of a commodity limits its quantity. Anything which can lie obtained in a limited quantity, with a certain ascertainable amount of labor, and which is di? visible, will serve the purpose of money. Furs have been employed on some countries as money, cattle in others as in the "Haid," in the estimation of the respective value of the shield of Diotnedos and Glattcus, the one worth nine oxen, the. other a hundred oxen; luieks of tea in Tartar}, cowries in Afri? ca, rock salt in Abyssinia.

Hibernation. The phenomenon of hibernation, or winter sleep, peculiar to some animals, is very curious indeed. It is not well understood. Some de elate it to be a sort of catalepsy; others say it is a trance. As it is a physiological event und cannot be well investigated, tbe changes which occur must remain some? what of a mystery. Thar certain animals retire to a concealed place and remain dor mant. or in a state of lethargy, for days, weeks or months together, we ki ow. That during this time they take no food, void no excre? tions and lose a great amount of animal heat we also know. But just how life is maintaiud, no one tan say. A number of hibernating animals acquire a great amount id' fat, usu? ally just under the skin, and dur? ing (be dormant period this is con? sumed and they come out in the spring very lean: but. in the case of serpents, frogs and bats no such accumulations have been noticed. In order that a certain amount of beat may be maintained, and as they are generall...
