Most farmprs ure a ware of the facl' haviiijr jraiued the knowlfldn lioui r.ictlcal experience, that as eahbages Iuerea-e iu growth by the heading proceu tln have a tendeucy lonetll&M to split open, whieh very greatly dlmlnUbe the value of the head.

Tliis, he says, tends to increase the sie of the cabhage heads and prevents tticir bnratlnK. It is oortalnly a very simple operation, and out well orthy of a trial. - Enterprise. I An exchange spcaks a word for theboys on our farms as follows: " It is all very well, when you have rjothlng else to do but to kill time, to talk about keeping the boys on the farm. You might as well spend yourtime spittinsrat a crack. Boys will stay on a farra as well as anywhere i f tliey receive conslderation at home. The boy wlio is yanked out of bed by the hair, kicked out to milk, and cuffed to breakfaet as a preliinitiary to being yankeii Ihrough the lield all day, is not iikely to be consumed by his love for the glories of agricultura - nor for hissiri'. Give the boy a fair show and he will stay withyou till the cows come home. If you make his Ufe acontinued round of hard. unceasing toil, without one single bright spot on it, don't sniffle about his ingratitude when he walks off the farm on his enr - never tocóme back agnin, Just retnember that he has earned fifty times what you have given him and try and make your home pleasant for the boys still with you.'' As we have no lyceum or other debating org.'iniziition in our village, we would suggest that the North Lake and (Jhelsea Lyceums, at their next joint discussion nrgue the following quection; "Is it wise to ullow children (trom 14 to 18 years) to occupy seats In a church cholr?" It is a new and not alto{pther uninteresting subject, iitid as we shall not be present 10 take part in the debate, we will give a few iñonters o the negative side. Sorne time ago we iillenUed church on aSunday eveiiinji wlieu a Dew man was to preach. Thre weic several children sittmg in the chuir chairs facing the audience, and previous ti commencement their levity was unrcstrained; and during preaching it would seenj as though every time they lecogni.ed another cliild in the audience a regular ''ffrinning match" would take jl;ice; and riiiiilly one became so overeóme with laugliter that a book was brought before the fce to hide the griinaces. And ttieie were likc cliildren in the audience who were no less culpibli1. Now tliis nnt only annoyed the prcncluT. Mut ditracted the atte.itiou of the hii iic nee (roo Ihe sermón. We hnpe tiiuse lyceums will give the question i tlionnigh fthing, for to our inind such goings-on in a church are disgraceful. More anon. -
