Senttnel, tuay be deteraiiucd by trjiug tlie following experiinerts : Take any givcn qumity of common poos, and divide the samo into tour parts kceping, them ecpernte. Theo, on any spot of grouud at alt fit for vegetation, whcn the senson appioaches for pojriog Ihem, sow the couteuts of the first parcol on the ürst or second day ol the new moou; the second parcel bow Boar tüe sume spot on the first or second d'jy of t!e second quiirter; the third parct-1 snvr on the second or third day before the full moon ; and iastly, sow the fourth gareel on the secpod or third day before tho moon ia out. Now the flrst parcel, 8own uudcr the new moon, will giow very fast, blossom most bcautifully, but wül not bear luuch fruit ; the eijnd will blossom oud bear ïcry liftle; tho third parcol will not only blossom beauüfully, but will bear fruit iu abundauco ; and the fourth and last parcol will Rcarcely risc from thogruund. Likuwiio all fruit trees get ut the new moou blrfsüm, but never bear muoü fruit ; whilo those set threa day a before tb full uncí boar nbundantly. In pruniDg trees tho samo ellect takes, for a treo pruucd at tho new moon will shoot forth branches, but will prove improductivo, but if pruued at tbe full, it will bear abuudantly. 1 1 i ii indecisión na:s all ucess; there oan be no good wind for tho sailor who 3toj)ws nut tu wiwt jjott ho u.homid.
