The generosity, as entertainers, with which Americans treat women is in strong contrast with the custom of Germans. In their own country they have no hesitation in intimating to their female companions that they are expected to pay their share. In Germany, if a man's feminine partner at a public ball desires a portion of ice- cream, he will bring i,t with a demand of "Forty pfennige, if you please." An instance is narrated in the New York Sun in ihe experience of some Englishwomen at a Prussian military ball given by the officers of a certain garrison. The price of the supper was printed upon the invitation. The Englishwomen expected that the officers who accompanied them would pay for the refreshments. They were quickly undeceived, for, after supping, the money was demanded, and they were compelled ro liquidate the debt. A Frenchman, on the other hand, is extremely punctilious in not permitting a woman to pay for anything while she is in his charge; In fact, he is apt to overstep the bounds of delicacy in his empresse- raent. "Woe to him, however, who invites ladies to dine at a fashionable French restaurant and through carelessness has not the wherewithal to pay for the meal. It is in such an emergency that the brutality and insolence of the French restauranteur are Dompietely revealed. In New York, In such a case, in restaurants of the higher class, the word or signature of a. visitor, if he be well-appearing, will usually be accepted. Bow Chicken* Saved a Steere'x Life. ©n Oct. 20 last, James Houck, Vice- t-resident of the Franklin Savings Bank of Frederick, Md., advertised that a young steer had strayed away trom his farm, tenanted by Harlan Ramsburg. Nothing was heard of the animal and it was given up for lost, until Feb. 8, one of the colored men noticed several hens frequently joing in a hole in a straw stack in lie barnyard. Thinking they had a nest, he crawled in about fifteen feet in. search of the eggs. He came out much quicker than he had gone in, de- slaring the stack was haunted, as something had-kicked him. Another man was sent in to investigate and he came out exclaiming that something was alive in there, as he felt a hairy leg, and it had also kicked his band. An investigation was then made and a. large hole cut in the straw stack, when the missing steer was actually found under the straw, where it had been imprisoned for ninety-nine days without food or water excepting the straw which it had subsisted on, as It had made a hole about ten feet square in the stack. The hands on the place now recalled the fact that on the second day's threshing they had observed the steer standing against the stack which had been made the drst day and saw the straw falling over the animal, but thought it had moved away. When rescued it was very weak and emaciated, but is doing very well now, being fed on. boiled bran. Billion* of TOHN oJt Oxygen. * Persons who happen to be inconvenienced by dearth of anxieties are Invited to agitate their spirits by contemplation of the prospect of a shortage of oxygen in the atmospher*. It seems that there are well-informd persons, Lord Kelvin among them, who find reason to believe that this calamity is impending. The figffres (estimated) in the case are thax the world uses annually six and a half billion tons of oxygen for breathing purposes, and nearly half as much for Br«s. This is a big consumption. To repair it we rely on. vegetation, which we are pretty constantly restricting. So we use more and more oxygen all the time, and make less and less. No wonder Lord Kelvin says the earth s undergoing "a steady loss of oxygen." As yet, though the atmosphere does not show it, aiid it may be a few thousand years yet. before the difference will be measurable. To the shortsighted the prospect may not seem distressing, but folks who need anx- eties should not neglect this one, since, after all, in anxieties and ancestry and such filings a little remoteness does no iMirm. ." "'^"L","" •Who Sh».ll Work in H Dairy. After a full consideration of the sub- ect of a pure milk supply at the annual meeting of ti« New Jersey state >oard of agriculture a report was adopted emphasizing the importance if not allowing aay person, affected with a contagious disease to have anything to do with dairy work. Among the diseases to be specially guarded against is tuberculosis, which, may be ommunicated to animals from filthy urroundings or from diseased caretakers. This may be regarded as a very practical forward step in prevention. nttt* of Knxllnjrt and Separator. At an Institute in Iowa one of the peakers stated that ensilage and the eparator had increased his production f butter to the sxtent of 65 pounds per cow per year; another said the eparator had iacraftsed his product by 12.50 per cow, and that he could raise th.e best calves fr«» separator milk. There is a difference of opinion regard- ins the test statement, however. Mostly- Coeducational.

THE FATHER'S SHOT. riiooen ft BUnded His Son, It Did 3fo« Sw«rv« th« Bt>y from Hi» pnrj>o»*. " 'Never mind, father, blindness shall not interfere with my success in life,' said the young law student, Henry Fawcett, when his father reproach ed himself for carelessly destroying all his son's prospects of advancement. "One pleasant day in 1858 the two had gone hunting together. A flock ol partridges flew over a. fence where tha father had no right to shoot; but aa he was moving forward they flew back toward his son. Th« father, so.eager to bring down a bird that he did not think of his son's danger, fired. Several shots entered Henry's breast, and one went through each glass of a pair of spectacles he wore. In an instant he was stone blind for life. "But within ten minutes from the time of the accident which deprived him of eyesight forever this boy ol iron nerve had determined that eveD blicdness should not swerve him from his purpose. " 'Will you read the newspaper tc me?' were his first words to his sister when they carried him home. "He was obliged to abandon law, but he began, tbe study of political economy with a zeal rarely equalled, meanwhile having friends read to him in his moments of leisure the works ol Milton, Burke, Wordsworth, all ol George Eliot's novels, and a wide course of general literature, for he was determined that his blindness should not limit the breadth of his culture." rnimiballfiiu in tbe West Indies. Lady Edith Blake writes in Appleton's Popular Science Monthly: We can picture the depredations caused by the incessant marauding bands oi these ferocious cannibals, and the terror they must have excited in tin minds of the milder islanders. Petei Martyr tells us that in his time alone more than five thousand men had beer taken from the Island of Sancti Johannes to be eaten. Even after the Car- ibs had abandoned cannibalism they continued a fierce and desperate people, s'hunned and dreaded by Arrow- auks and Europeans alike, and when cannibalism had ceased to be an everyday matter it would break out every now and then when occasion arose. The establishment of Spanish nil* and the disappearance of the Arrow- auks must have been the main factors in the decline of cannibalism, but before such was the case the Caribs seem to have given up the practice in some places. Thus Herrera says thai "those of St. Croix and Dominica were greatly addicted to predatory excursions, hunting men," but not long before he wrote the Caribs of Dominica had eaten a poor monk, "and he so disagreed with them that many died, and that for a time they left off eating human, flesh, making expeditions instead to carry off cows and mares." Grace Darlinp'tt Torob. Every one has heard of Grace Darling and her heroic deed during a terrible storm on the northern coasts ol England, when, with the aid of her aged father, she rescued some shipwrecked seamen. THE TOMB OJP CBACE D When she died, a monument was erected over her body in Bambro' churchyard. The stone, which had crumbled in many places, was recently restored. The figure in the picture is that of her brother, the sole surviving member of the family. Birth of the Xir of"'-Tankee Doodle." After the representatives of Great Britain and the United States had nearly concluded their pacific labors at Ghent, in making the treaty of peace which ended the war of 1812, the burghers of the quaint old Dutch city determined to give an entertainment in. honor of the Ministers. They determined, as a part of their programme, to perform the national airs of the two powers. The musical director was sent te call upon the American Ministers and obtain the music of their national air. A consultation ensued, at which Bayard and Gallatin favored "Hail Columbia," while Clay, Sussell and Adams ! wanted "Yankee Doodle." ; The musical director asked if any of I the gentleman had the music. None oi j them had it. Then he suggested that ! perhaps one of them would sing or whistle the air. "I can't" said Mr. Clay. "I never whistled or sung a tune in my life; perhaps Mr. Bayard can." "Neither can I," answered Mr. Bayard. "Perhaps JSr. Russell can." Mr. Russell, Mr. Gallatin, and Mr. Adams in turn confessed their lack of musical ability. "I have it," exclaimed Mr. Clay, and ringing the bell he tnmmoned his body servant. "John," said he. "whistle •Yankee Doodle' for this gsatleman." John did so, the chief musician noted down the air, aad at the entertainment Un« Ghent Burgher*' Band played the vai THE SAN JOSE SCALE. That Rave Been Tried U the Infemed Districts In view of the destruction caused by this new enemy to fruit and ornamental trees and shrubbery, and the alarming spread of the disease, coupled with the fact that no effective remedy has as yet been found, th« following method for detecting the insect is especially timely. On account of its small size, most persons in looking for it pass it by unnoticed. The female scale is only about one-twentieth of an inch in diameter, while the male is only about one-half that size. The shape of the female is nearly circular, whila the male is more elongated. The female is sharply convex or conical in the centre. This last characteristic will help to distinguish it from many of the more common species. Its coloi is nearly like the bark on which it is found. Another distinguishing characteristic is found in the reddish discoloration of the bark immediately surrounding the scale and extending through both the outer and the innei bark. These characteristics will enable one with an ordinary pocket magnifying glass to detect the presence ol tbe insect. Several remedies have been tried in Infested districts with more err less success, and among them the old-time remedy for scale insects of any kind, that of painting the trunk and branches of the trees with thick white paint This has proved more or less successful, but in some cases the trees were Mlled, probabiy because turpentine or a similar oil was used for mixing the paint, which will kill trees about as quickly as anything which rould b* put on them. White lead p^ .it thinned with linseed oil is the only safe thing in the paint line to use on trees. Cover for S»p Bncketn.

The wire can be made fast to the shingle by little staples, or by using a narrow cleat like a piece of lath. The wire should be about thirty inches long and will cost less than half a cent. When done, spring the ends of wire apart and it will hug the tree firmly. Waxte in Bntcherlnfc- There are many lessons which the majority of farmers would learn by a visit to the abbattoirs or immense butchering establishments of some of our large cities. The ease and rapidity with which hogs or cattle are killed and dressed are perhaps ae impressive as any. But hardly less so is the care everywhere taken that nothing be allowed to go to waste. Everything about the hog is said to be put 10 some use in the Chicago stock yards except his squeal. Tie hair, feet and ears are made into what is called 'souse," and is liked by everybody, while the intestines are cleaned and saved to bold the sausage meat. With beef cattle a great deal is saved in the packing house which in most farmer's yards is allowed to go to waste. Tha four feet of the animal are boiled so as to extract the oil, of which the four will usually furnish about one quart. The horns and tha bones are valuable as they can be worked up into a great variety of useful articles. It is in such savings as these tiat a great proportion of the beef-packer's profits are made, and they enable him to sell meat much more cheaply than would otherwise be possible. air ot the United States with Jona. OrerdrlVinjr Heavy Hor»e», Heavy draught horses were not made tor fast road travel, and though they Often have the muscle to trot quite fast, it is always injurious to them to do so. There ought really to be on every farm trams for doing the heavy work and teams for doing ths marketing and for pleasure driving. It makes a great difference when a. heavy horse, weighing 1250 pounds or more, goes over a hard road bed, as compared with a. lightroad fcorse doing the same thing. No bone «r muscle can be strong enough to endure the hard pounding which a heavy .draught horse mai*s in trotting. His feet will "go wrong," as horsemen say, and a horse with p«or feet is not much good anywhere. Practical. "Miss Wiggles-worth thinks she's eligible to the Order of the Crown.
