Farmer's Calendar.

EVERY farmer and every farmer's boy ought to learn to appreciate the value of time. The winter gives relief to the tired muscles, and the evenings invite to study and mental culture. It is a sad mistake to let them go by without getting from them a harvest of thought and growth equal to and of far greater worth than that you have compelled from the too reluctant earth through the long days of summer. Knowledge is power, and it always will be in a civilized community; and so we must give up mind and heart, so far as we can, to the acquisition of knowledge, and to discipline, and train, and develop all the faculties. But there are the chores to do, and the stock in the barn to take care of. Feed out the English turnips now, when it will be time to begin on the swedes. root-cutter now that will chop They have a cheap them up fine enough to feed to sheep in an incredibly short time. chine-power saves the wear and All the labor we can do by matear of muscle, and leaves us more leisure to devote to other pursuits. We depend a good deal on the woodpile in winter, and it will not do to neglect that. Dry and well-seasoned wood costs less than green, for it is Pleasant. better and more economical.
