Ai if countloss shepherds had driven their flocta up from the valleys and paused to rest upon the crest of the mountain, the newly washed fleeces glistening like enow upon the hillsides, ao the mist of early morning lay thick and white upon the summits of Lookout, Mis sion Ridge, and the natural guardians of never-to-be-forgotten Chattanooga. With tho rising of tho sun the mists lifted and floated softly away, as if on angel wings, revealing an almost endless expanse of land scape. Sluggishly tho river crept ly, a rippling rythm of ease and peace. Tho mighty hills stood like sentinels over countless miles of country. From their tops could be seen Ten nessee. Georgia. Alabama, and in tho distanco Blue Ridgo and Haiti Teak and the shadowy outlines of King's Mountain. The dissolving of tho mista revealed also sterner lines than these. Tho si...

The custom ef selecting ecd from the central portion of the ear and rejecting the butt and end grains is, and has long been, a common practico adopted by careful farmers. In ex periments mado at tho New York Agricultural Station, with a view of determining the rela tive values of tho kernels from different parts of the ear of corn, tho following conclusions have been reached : 1. The tip kernels wero most prolific of good corn. 2. Tho butt kernels woso more prolific of good corn than tho cen tral kernels. 3.

THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1882. fl RURL TOPICS, Some Practical Suggestions for Our Agriculta! leaders. ' Tho beat time to prune grapes is immediately after the first frost, or as soon as the leaves fall. Many growers leave this operation till Fcbru ary or later, a practice which closo observation would soon reject. It is frequently stated that all periods aro equally good, from the fall of the leaves until leavos appear in spring. If tho plant remained perfectly dormant during tho interval betweon these periods, tho advice would possibly bo correct, but as plants con tinue to assimilate and add to their vitality to some extent, even when destitute of leaves, tho time for pruning has much offect upon tho future of tho plant. During tho winter plants continue to absorb by their roots, and tho buds on their brandies increase in size and gain addi tional strength for spring growth ; theroforc, when pruning is contemplated it should bo per formed duri...

N RURAL TOPICS, i Some Practical Suggestions for Our Agricultural Headers. Most people who grow garden peas have seen their seed injured by an insect which shows its attacks by making a hole in the pea. Of late years a somewhat similar insect has been ram pant in bean fields, and instead of only one in Eect appearing in a seed, as is usual in the pea the bean has many insects in one seed. How best to get rid of this insect is an important question; if it could be possible to destroy every bean which contains insects, they might in time bo entirely eradicated ; at all events no ono should sow beans which contain insects, not only on account of the chanco escape of tho insect, but also because the plants produced from them will be unhealthy. The best disposition to make of wormy beans is to feed them to animals. Tho Indians consider pea worms and meal worms valuable as food, and on this account it is said that they prefer food in which worms appear in profusion. clover. (Trifolhm prat...
