Eulogizing Women Marion Crawford in his new novel, ''To Leeward," says: '-Oh, woman, God-given helpmate of man, and noblest of God's gifts and of all created things is there any man bold enough to say t hat he can make praises for you out of ink and paper that shall be worthy to rank as praise at all by the side of your good deeds ? You, who bow your gentle heads to the burden, and think it sweet, out of the fullness of your own sweet sympathy you, whose soft fingers have the strength to bind np broken limbs and rough, torn wound you, who feel for each living thing as you feel for your own bodily flesh, and more you, who in love are more tender and faithful and long-suffering than we, and who. even erring, err for the sake of the over-great heart that God has given you. 'You are only women, and you know no better' What greater, or higher, or nobler thing can I say of you, In all humbleness and truth than that you are what you are, and that you know no better? What better things can any know than to bear pain bravely, to heal the wounded, to feel for all, even for those who cannot feel for themselves, and to be tender and faithful and kind in love? And even, being given of ! heaven and loved of it, that you should turn in time of need and trouble and say a prayer for strength and knowledge, even that is a part of you. and not the least divine part. So that when the man who cannot suffer what you can suffer, nor do the good that you can do, sneers and scoffs at your prayers and your religion, I could wring his cowardly neck to death." Do. Do attach as much importance to your mind as to your body. Do be natural ; a poor diamond is better than a good imitation. Do observe; the faculty of observation, well cultivated, makes practical men and women. Do, at least once in a while, reflect ; most things, if worth consideration at all, look different upon reflection. Do avoid causes of irritation in your family circle; do reflect that home is the place in which to be agreeable Do, if a man says he loves you, try to find out what he means by it ; a good many men love themselves when they imagine they are loving you. Do, if you hear a scandalous story, even from your bosom friend, forget it ; try to remember only what is to the credit of others. Do be exact in money matters; every debt you incur means loss to some one, probably to some one less able than you to bear it. Do cultivate the habit of listening to others; it will make you an invaluable member of society, to say nothing of the advantage it will be to you when you marry; every man likes to talk about himself; a good listener makes a delightful wife. Do speak intelligibly, and not as if you had pebbles in 'your mouth ; and do remember that your nose was given you to breath through and not as a vehicle of sound. Do be contented ; "martyrs" are detestable; a cheerful, happy spirit is infectious; you can carry it about with you like a sunny atuirsphere. Do avcid whispering; it is as bad as giggling; both are to be condemned; there is no excuse for either one of them ; if you have anything to say, say it; if you have not, do hold your tongue altogether; silence i golden. Do be strictly truthful; do avoid exaggeration; if you mean a mile, say a mile, and not a mile and a half ; if you mean one, say one, and not a dozen. xV York Mail-Express. Wedding Fashions Anion); Canadian rtawnln. The chief social event of their lives is a wedding almost the only set occasion of festivities. The priest then permits dancing among relatives, and allows unusual expenses to be incurred. But. to begin at the beginning, boys and sirls generally see but little of one another, separated as they are in colleges and convents, and subsequently having but formal meetings, closely supervised by parents. The priest directs that courtship shall be v-ry short and circumspect. It generally lasts but a few months; engagements are made very much after the pecuniary interests followed in France, and the marriages generally occur at from eighteen to twenty-two years of sge. A widower of this place recently went to spend the evening with a neighbor, whose sister was an old maid whom no one had thought of marrying. When he left the house her brother suggested that he should marry her. They returned to the house, and went together to her tad, in one corner of the room, and woke her np. Holding the candle up to his face, he said : " Mite. G . take a good look at me; I'm rather worse than 1 seem by candlelight, and I've nine small children, and not a great deal of land. Will von marrv me r She rubbed her eyes, still half asleep, looked him over a moment, and said, "Yes." 'Then be ready next Tuesday. In another case, the day after the banns of marriage had leen published here, the intended found his betrothed crying by the window. "'What's the matter, Maria?" "Well. Baptist, my sister Louise wants very mucn to marry, because she's older, and it's her turn first. And it makes me sad to see her disappointed. Now if you would only marry her! Everything is readv, vou know, and it would be such a relief." "Well, well, don't cry alout that." said he, with a moment's surprise. "I don't mind if I do. Go and tell her to get ready." The church forbids the union of blood-relations, but it sells for a moderate price permits for even first cousins to marry, so that consanguineous unions are very common in these old parishes, where families have Jieiit increasing and settling near the old homestead till they form clans sometimes numliering several hundred of one name. Moreover, the priest permits such marriages sometimes in consideration of certain circumstances, such as the needs of a family for a stepmother or ste;-father, the lack of beauty reducing the chances of a woman to get another offer, or the adv ance of age, or the poverty of a woman. ILtrjier'i Majaztiie. Fashion and Other Xotrv. Magenta color has been revived in Lon-lon. For evening wear the hair is arranged very high. No jewelry is worn on the street in New York. The mutton-leg sleeve appears on some of the new dresses. New street suits are made of woolen stuff of two colors. Boys wear the Russian blouse unti they are six or eight years of age. Black crepe-lisse trims the neck and sleeves of many of the newest black silk dresses. The favorite wrapper for the bridal outfit is of pale blue or pale pink cashmere, and is embroidered with rosebuds. White velvet and brocade is a favorite combination for bridal dresses. Bridesmaids are dressing in contrasting colors. Tailor-made dresses are still very popular. The newest have the plaitings and tunic, waist and jacket all bound round with black silk braid. High coiffures have come back into fashion, and are merely a French twist, with the ends that come out at the top laid in loops on the crown. Summer shirtings are adorned with the most grotestjue figures. A monkey with a violin, Kate Greenaway girls and Japanese designs are the mildest. Among the novelties are clocks covered with tufted satin and with an illuminated dial, new time standard, and designed for bedroom, mantel or night table. English women have begun to adopt a fashion introduced by a graceful Spaniard at a recent reception in London a kid-embroidered jacket, matching the exact shade of the velvet skirt. The new large pattern sateens and percales will be made up in combination with plain sateens and percales without figures, but tine finish, and in colors to match the grounds of the colored stuffs. Garnet and blue, garnet and wood color, bronze and ruby and bronze and blue are combined in the new Parisian suits for street wear. Bronze and pink is a combination much in favor for house dress. A novelty for evening dresses is not studded with silk flowers in relief not embroidered but wonderful reproductions of the blossoms. Yellow tulle has silken wheat ears upon it, and gray tulle has bunches of lilacs and pansies. Some of the prettiest and most unique of the recently made capotes have the velvet full or box-p!aited on the crown, and the brim cleft a little to the left side of the front and slightly turned back, and filling the cleft a bow of bias velvet or of wide velvet ribbon. Dolmans of black velvet brocade lined with old gold or crimson satin, and trimmed with heavy chenille fringe, are very much worn. It is a pity that chenille fringe is not more durable. It makes the prettiest kind of trimming, but cannot be worn more than two dozen times. The New York patterns for cotton frocks have short skirts made with large plaits, drapery gathered high on the sides and very full in the back, and sleeves set hitrh on the shoulder. When two mate- I rials are used the underskfrt is plain; the plaiting at the hem is retained, and the Moliere waistcoat is used. Most graceful tea gowns are made of embroidered white China crape shawls with the soft puffed fronts of plain satin trimmed with lace. The fringe of the shawl is shortened and its netted heading is laid over satin. The crape opens over the Moliere vest and forms sleeves tohe elbow to meet there ptiffs of satin arid lace. Daily Life of the Chinese Emperor. The Chinese emperor is a lad thirteen years of age. He lives in a state of semi-seclusion in the palace of Jan-Chien-Tien, where he is waited on by a staff of picked retainers, who never approach him otherwise than on their knees. His mother visits him once a month, and she kneels while uttering her first sentence. Considering the extraordinary respect in which parents are held in China, no more complete recognition of the transcendent character of the imperial dignity can be imagined. His father goes through exactly the same ceremonial. The emperor devotes two hours and a half daily to the study of Chinese, and the same time to Manchu. Needless to say, the professors approach him on their knees; but to remark the respect to letters which Chinese traditions exact even from the emperor, he invites, or rather commands, them to rise when the lessen begins. He passes two hours each day in riding and in arc hery, and in winter he takes sledging exercise. Eight eunuchs wait upon him at table, and have orders to prevent his partaking too freely of any of his favorite dishes, as boys, even though they be emperors, will sometimes do. He sleeps in a magnificent Ningpo bed. the frame of which is of massive gold and ivory, and which belonged to his distinguished ancestors, K'ang Hsi and Ch'ien Lung. The Chameleon. Philosopher as he is. the chameleon requires fiwxl, and since he is too slow to go after it, he brings it to him. As his ball and-socket eyes roll this way and that way, one of them marks a large white butterfly walking up the bars of his casre, and he forms a purpose to eat it. He unwinds his tail, then relaxes the grasp of his broad palms one at a time I (lor he is extremely nervous about falling and breaking his bones,) and so he ad-j varices slowly along the twig until he is within six inches of his prey, then he stops, and there is a working in his swollen throat ; he is gumming his tongue. At last he leans forward anil opens his preposterous mouth, and that member protrudes like a goose-quill steeped in white bird-lime. For a moment he takes aim, and then, too quick for eyes to follow it, the horrid instrument has darted forth, and returned like elastic to its place, and the gay butterfly is being crunched and swallowed as fast as anything can be swallowed when tongue, jaws, and throat are smeared with viscid slime. But this part of the process is inconceivably vulgar, and we may well leave the chameleon to himself till it is over. Facts About Digestion. Jessen hiis carried out a series of experiments to determine the time necessary for the digestion of equal quantities of different meats and of milk. Three different methods were employed in the investigation: 1. Artificial digestion; 2. Introduction of the meats into the stomach of a living dog, by means of a fistula; 3. Upon a healthy man, allowing him to swallow the foods used, and ascertaining the time of digestion by means of a stomach pump. The results obtained by the different methods were, on the whole, uniform, as far as the relative time necessary for digestion in each case was concerned, and may be stated as follows: Haw beef and mutton were digested most quickly; for half-boiled beef and raw veal, a longer time is necessary; thoroughly boiled and ha;f-roasted beef, raw pork and sour cow's milk followed next; fresh cow's milk, skimmed milk and goat's milk were still less easily digested; while the longest time was require! for thoroughly roasted meats and boiled milk. The Arab ami His Horse. The Arabians never beat ther horses; they never cut their tails; they treat them gently; they speak to them and seem to hold a discourse ; they use them as friends: they never attempt to increase their speed by the whip, or spur them, but in cases of creat necessity. They never fix them to a stake in the fields", but suffer them to pasture at large around their habitations: and they come running the moment that they hear the sound of their master's voice. In consequence of such treatment these animals become docile and tractable in the highest degree. They resort at night to their tents, and lie down in the midst of the children, without ever hurting them in the slightest manner. The little boys and girls are often seen upon the body or neck of the mare, while the beasts continue inoffensive and harmless, ennit-ting them to play with and caress them without injury. There is a sly old K.iss?n proverb which says: " Where is thf b':t Wherever we are not." POPULAR SCIENCE. While on bis way from England to Australia, Mr. M. IX Conway, who is making a tour around the world, saw a very peculiar sun. One morning, he says, that in place of the usual orb, an intense blue sun rose above the horizon, and maintained its startling color the entire day.. The Glasgow Medical Journal describes an electro-magnet having a power to rise upon its point a weight -equal to six ounces. It has been used successfully in cases where workmen in iron and steel have been severely wounded by flying chips, and the writer says that such instruments must henceforth become an essential part of the apparatus of ophthalmic surgeons. Sir Samuel W. Baker, the African explorer, states that the camel will cross the deserts with a load of 400 pounds at the rate of thirty miles a day in the burning heat of summer, and require water only every third or fourth day. In the cooler months the animal will work for seven or eight days without water; and if grazing on green foliage without labor will drink only once a fortnight. From a report on American precious stones, by Mr. George F. Kutz. it appears that some eighty-eight different minerals occur in the I'nited States which have been used as gems, and twelve of these are found only in the United States. Systematic mining for gems is carried on at only two places in this country, viz: at Paris, Maine, famed for its tourmalines, of which probably more than $.j),00) worth have been obtained; and at Stony Point, N. C, which has thus far yielded some $7,500 worth of tourmaline and hiddenite. In other cases where gems are found they are either met with accidentally or occur in connection wiih other materials that are being mined, or in small veins which are only occasionally to be discovered. The analysis of snake poisons, made last summer by Drs. Wier, Mitchell and Beichert, have been fully confirmed by other investigators. All the venoms examined are essentially alike; in every case they are made up of three proteid bodies. The first reduces the blood pressure, induces swelling (cedema), and finally brings about putrefactive effects. The second is a virulent substance, one-twentieth of a grain of which will kill a pigeon in two hours; it gives rise in a few minutes after injection to enormous infiltration of blood into the neighboring tissue. The poisonous properties of the third substance are doubtful. The object of the analysis is to eliminate the venomous principle, so that experiments may be made as to what drug can be used to the best advantage in neutralizing it. Training Bloodhounds. In a letter from Huntsville, Texas, to the Houston Post, the writer says: "And these are the bloodhounds I hear so much about2" I remarked to my conductor. "Yes, they are the famous bloodhounds that is, as much bloodhounds as you will find in Texas. They are simply foxhounds trained to hunt men." "Do you keep them shut up all the time?'' ''Yes; they would make it pretty lively for the boys if they got out." "How often have you occasion to use thcin during the year?" "Not more than two or three times. Convicts will not leave when they know good hounds are on hand to catch them." "Could you not dispense with the hounds and depend upon your guns?" "No, indeed; you cannot hold convicts with shotguns. It is the fear of the hounds which keeps them quiet. Desertion is useless when recapture is a moral certainty, as is the case when good hounds are employed." "Do you have difficulty in properly training your hounds?" "Oh, no; that is about the only sport there is. Here come the puppies. We will give them a run and let you see how it is done." A trusty was sent down the lane and over the fence, through a large field, on a run for dear life. A hen he had accomplished about a half mile, or half his circuit, the puppies, three six-months-old hounds, were put on his track, and they started, nosing the ground and yelping as they ran. On they kept, over fences and through stubbles and ditches, never ceasing their noise. Somctimcss they would run over the trail where the trusty had made an abrupt turn, but soon they would return to the spot where they lost the scent and cautiously feel their way until certain they had the trail, when they would off again. The trusty was a long-distance runner, but the soft ground made his impromptu track heavy, and he lagged as he approached the end of his run. evidently fatigued. The dogs gained on him rapidly and were yelping close upon him. He was ordered to run to a tree or fence and get out of their way, so that they would have to find him by the scent. He first tried to climb a high gate-post, but the dogs with their noses to the ground were upon him almost and forced him to take shelter in a wagon which was standing in the yard, where he, hid himself in the bed just as the clogs came to the gate. They looked up the gate-post and snifiled around a little, then without delay followed the trail direct to the wagon and discovered their prey, lying panting like a tug-boat. I looked at the perspiring convict, and my heart smote me for being the cause of his race, but I soon found out that it was a great privilege, enjoyed by but few, and giving the puppies a race was considered by them the very essence of pleasure. The convict took an old blanket in his hand and alighted on the ground where the dogs fought ' him fiercely, making vicious springs for him. He repulsed them by buffeting them with the blanket, jumping away and thwarting them in any manner without hurting them. Finally one of the dogs fastened his teeth in the convict's coarse pants, and, holding on with unyielding tenacity, was swung round and round, with vigor, until tired. The dogs were then taken by a guard, and the convict weut away highly pleased with his sport. A Gander Pnlling. At 10 a. m. , a very rcsnectable company of fantasties made their apearance and continued to ride through the streets during the day, to the amusement of the crowd. About 3 p. m. some one suggested that the day's sport would be wound up with an old-fashioned "gander pulling." Every one has doubtless read in "Georgia Scenes" of the manner in which the first settlers of Georgia amused themselves iu this rather barbarous sport, and at this time but few of the oldest inhabitants can remember having been at a gander pulling. An ancient gander was procured, his neck stripped of feathers and well greased. A rope was stretched across Oak street, just below the Xt-w building, the gander's feet firmly tied together and swung on the rope in the middle of the street, when the fantasties began and carried on the gander pulling with their horses at full speed. Fer some time the gander managed to dodge the grasp of the riders, but occasionally one would give him a pull, until finally one got a good grip on him and broe the gander's neck. In a few more rounds Mr. 11. came off victor ; by carrying the gander's head with him, j and the gander pulling was ended. The sport was witnessed by a large crowd of whites and blacks of all ages and sexes. Jackson Cvunfy (Git. ) Herald. Toost and Ileal Ism. The fair and imaginative "Ouida," ; writing of Italy, says: "Here one wants ! so little; the air and the light, and a lit- ' tie red wine, and the warmth of wind, ! and a handful of maize or of grapes, and ;in old guitar, ami a nielie to sleep in near a fountain that murmurs and sings to the mosses and marbles these are enough in Italy." And yet nearly every vessel that ', comes to Cast U- garden from the blue Med- j iteiatieun brings a drove of stalwart Ital- i ians who look as though they would not object to being introduced to a loaf of brown bread and a flitch of American bacon. Such is the difference between roesv and realism. Xew Yvrk World. You must not stay in bed until 9 o'clock in the morning upon the excuse that it sleep year. Oil City Derrick. FARM AND II0USEII0LD. Washing Fruit Trees. There are insects common to all trees, and it la only by constant care that we can get satisfaction from our trees. On the pear and apple there is a scale insect which attaches itself to the bark and injures the trees if allowed to remain. It is known that any greasy matter is death to insects. Thus there are many compounds of this nature used for washing trees. Kerosene oil for hard wood has been used with success by many persons, but it must not get on the foliage. One form of wash is made by adding one pound of whale oil soap to three gallons of warm water, stirring well and applying with a stiff broom or brush. The trunk should be rubbed thoroughly and hard to remove as much as possible of loose bark, so that the liquid may reach every part of the surface. Another good wash is a weak lye from wood ashes. A third wash is made by adding two quarts of soft water to one gallon of oil soap. Place these in a vessel over the fire, and when warm, the soap and water readily combine by stirring, and should be applied like the whale oil application. The best results are obtained by washing the tree about three times during the season, applying the first in March or April, the second in June, tho last in August. The insects, as well as moss, will be effec tually removed, leaving the bark in a healthy condition. A Convenient Corn Pen. We find a temporary corn pen convenient in the lot for fattening swine, says a writer in an exchange. This pen holds only enough corn for a few days' feeding, the corn being hauled to it from the storage pens, or directly from the field as it is needed. Our pen holds about one hundred bushels, but pens can easily be built to hold three times as much. The pen should be built in the center of the lot, with a feeding floor around it. The c orn is thrown to the hogs by hands. The hogs can pass under the pen and pickup any shelled corn which may drop from above. The pen affords no harbor for rats and mice, and the corn does not gather moisture from below and mold. The air passes freely around, under and over the corn, and this soon dries it. The hogs cannot get at the corn, and do not worry off their flesh reaching after ears. The pen is useful the year round, though its greatest value is during fall and wiuter. We have continuously used this pen in our feed lots for more than twenty years, and can highly recommend it to others. The manner of constructing this convenient pen for feeding corn is as follows ; Four forked posts are set in the ground at the corners of a square, the sides of which are nine feet long. Two poles are laid in the forks of these posts, parallel to each other, three and one-half feet from the ground. On these poles the floor of plank or rails is laid. -The sides of the pen are built up of rails, like a log house, until the pen is of the desired height. The posts should be at least eight inches in diameter at the base, with strong forks. This is a very cheap pen, which will last until the posts, upon which it stands, rot away. Applying: Sand to firass I. and. Those who have meadow land that has been drained and seeded down to the better quality of grasses often find it necessary to apply a dressing of sand, experience teaching that it very much improves the condition of the grass roots and increases the crop of grass; sometimes quite as much as a dressing of manure. The reason why this is so few-stop to inquire. The application of sand to a meadow often accomplishes a double purpose. First, it lightens up the soil and gives the water a chance to drain off, and, second, it furnishes silica to the grass, which is necessary to strengthen the stalk. Meadow land that is composed entirely of partially decomposed vegetable material settles together sometimes so closely that water will not readily pass through it, except in small streams. This is very unfavorable to the growth of any crop that the fanner desires to grow. Unless there are numerous passage wavs for both air and water the roots of plants fail to get the material necessary for their growth. In reclaiming meadow land the first effort is to drain off the surplus water; ditches are dug low enough to draw the water, perhaps two feet below the surface ; but if the meadow be composed entirely of decayed vegetation, advanced to that stage which makes it so compact that the water cannot pass through it, for some time after the ditches are dug the water fails to readily drain off, except near the banks of the ditches. Such land needs a few inches of sand to bring it into a favorable condition for vegetable growth. When it can be done without too much expense the application of sand will be much more beneficial if mixed with four or live inches in depth of the soil, because by mixing the sand with the muck it secures a combination of material that is highly favorable to rapid decomposition, thus soon bringing the soil into that state which encourages a rapid growth of grass. While surface application is not as good, it is often very beneficial, especially if a good dressing of manure is applied at the same time, and a liberal quantity of grass seed sown and well harrowed in. The winter season is the most favorable time to apply sand to low laud, because time is worth less, and the meadows are frozen so that full loads can be carried over it without danger of cutting the land up. Mansactusetts Ploughman. Farm and Ciarden o(c. Horse nettles may be destroyed by pouring kerosene on the stalks and letting it run down the stems into the roots. Seeding old pastures docs not always thicken the sod, as the roots do not allow the younger grasses an opportunity to take hold. It is said that a few drops of carbolic acid that is, ten drops, in one pint of water will, if poured over the earth in flowerpots, kill all living things except the plants. A Florida correspondent advises farmers how to tighten wagon tires. When the woodw ork in the wheels shrink, and the tires become loose, he thoroughly soaks the woodwork in some boiling linseed oil. A report is going the rounds of agricultural exchanges to the effect that a process has been discovered in France by which the oil taken from sheep's wool is cleaned and made valuable for lubricating purposes. A British medical journal says that cows drink filthy water for its saline taste, and proposes an antidote in the shape of rock salt, kept always in reach of the cows and near the place where pure water is supplied, so as to attract them to that location. Scientists tell farmers that the red rus and black rust on wheat, and the barberry rust, are all forms of one rust. The barberry rust gives rise to the red rust on wheat, and the red rust produces the black rust, while the black rust in turn gives rise to the barberry rust. Rev. L. L. Langstroth.the veteran beekeeper, says the age of queens can be told by their color. A young queen is bright-colored and fresh looking, more so on the first year than ever afterward. We cannot look at a queen and say to a certainty that she is a certain age, but we can make a pretty close guess. A Massachusetts farmer, who raises asparagus extensively, says that an application of salt is of no use whatever, being only a practice that has been handed down for several generations. Perhaps the necessity for salt is lessened when asparagus is raised near the sea. where the soil and atmosphere are both impregnated with salt. The more finely pulverized any manure is made the more efficient it will be. But if the pulverizing is accomplished by fermentation care must be taken to prevent the loss of the valuable volatile elements. Covering the compost heaps with sods from the roadside will do this, and when the heap is rotted down the earth will be as rich in nitrogen as the manure. Professsor Cook, in late experiments at the New Jersey experiment station, says that to obtain the btst effects from nitrate Some fruit growers are of the opinion that there is no cure for jellows on peach trees, but claim that the disease may bo prevented by judicious management. Peach trees 6hould be cultivated, not pi -i wed, and kept clean for the first three or four years. After that time a grass crop may be permitted, but the laud should be annually broadcasted with s me fertilizer rich in potash. The borers must be kept away, and all dead branches carefully removed. The Elmira Farmers' club has been discussing the prevalent practice of blacksmiths in burning the hoofs of horses that they are shoeing. It strongly objects to "the practice. S. M. Carr, one ol the members, says he has shod horses since he was sixteen years old, and is now nearly seventy, and he objects to burning the hoof because it contracts it and narrows the heel. Blacksmiths like to burn the hoof because burning makes it pare easier: but the practice should not be tolerated by owners of horses. An experienced farmer uses all the oak limbs for fence posts. He says they last longer than posts of equal size from old body wood or from young trees. There is a great difference in the lasting quality of oak, ar& it is the belief of many that it is due to injuries sustained in some sections from worms about twenty years ago. The worms did some damage for three years in succession, and after that disappeared. Oak timber cut before that date is still good, while much that has been cut since has rotted out after a few years. Artichokes have been grown for swine several years at the Michigan Agricultural college. The method of management has been to have a small patch of artichokes convenient to the swine pens, upon which the breeding sows were turned early in the spring and allowed to harvest the roots for themselves. The croj) is thus grown with very little labor, since it requires no harvesting, the roots remaining in the ground all winter, and it furnishes succulent food for the sows just when it is most needed and most difficult to obtain from other sources. Professor Johnson, farm superintendent, is so well pleased with the result of this management that he is enlarging the artichoke plantation. Maryland Farmer. Kccipes. of soda where the land has not been treated with acid phosphate, is to mix with the nitrate about twice its weight of common salt; that 150 pounds of the nitrate will be a sufficient dressing, and that the best time to apply it is iu the spring, soon after vegetation starts. Sheep should have a shed to which they can flee in stormy and windy weather. Sheep cannot bear long-continued close confinement. A flock of sheep confined in a quite close apartment soon fill their quarters with a disagreeable stench, harmful to the health of the sheep if they are not allowed to seek the open air at will. Their apartments, if they are to be confined to them, should be well ventilated overhead. Browned Flour. A correspondent asks how flour may be browned for soup and gravies. Put it in a saucepan and set it over the fire ; stir it every moment, as it will be in danger of burning. It must be kept in a dry place. Save youi empty baking-powder cans to put it in. You can brown a pint or so at a time. Delicious Hot Cake for Tea. Beat two eggs to a froth, add to them half a cupful of sugar. Into one cupful of som cream beat half a teaspoon ful of soda dissolved in boiling water. Stir it into the eggs ancl sugar. Add a pinch of salt and flour enough to make it a thick batter for griddle cakes. Bake in "gem pans'' or shallow biscuit pans, and serve piping hot. Carrot Soup. Boil some carrots in salted water with an onion, a bay leaf, a sprig of parsley and some whole pepper. When quite done strain off the water, and pass the carrots through a hair sieve. Parboil some rice until every grain is fairly burst; drain off the water; then take one part of rice to two parts of carrot pulp, add stock to bring the soup to the right consistency, pepper, salt and a pinch of sugar, and set it to simmer by the side of the fire for half an hour; a pinch of powdered loaf sugar may be added if on tasting the soup is found to require it. Mince Pies. Mince pies without cider, brandy or vinegar are a disideratum, and an "earnest temperance woman" says: "I have made them for the last forty years and have never used any of the above ingredients. I simply use the liquor the beef is boiled in, and if that does not make moisture enough after adding some New Orleans molasses, which gives a rich brown color to the mass, 1 add a cup of coffee left from the breakfast table, with spices to suit the taste. Pies made in this way are not only excellent, but are not liable to sour the stomach. Confectioner and Baker. Household Hints. Oxalic acid will almost always remove stains left by mud which cannot be removed with soap and water. Well soap the mildewed spots in linen, and while wet scrape some chalk over the marks and rub well in; after one or two applications the spots will disappear. A teaspoonful of gall in the lather, oi a slight tinge of blue keeps the color ol the black stockings; also a handful ol salt. A spoonful of ammonia in the rinse is enough. When lemons are cheap, it is prudent to lay in a good store of them, as they will keep well by running a fine string through the nib at the end and hanging them up in a dry place, taking care that they do not touch each other. A good way to remove dust from a carpet is to fasten a damp cloth over tho broom ; with this the dust may be literally taken up. This will be found useful in the sick room, and also in any room where there are many small articles tc catch dust. It brightens a carpet to wipe it off in this way, even after the usual sweeping has been done. An Engineer's Exploit. A brave act performed by Engineer A. M. Machim, is described by the Little Bock (Ark.) Gazette. The engineer was in the cab of his engine taking the southbound passenger train down to Piue Bluff. About a mile north of Winchester, as he sat. looking down the track, he saw some object lying directly across it. The train was running fully fifteen miles an hour, and was not far enough away from the object to stop before it would be hit. "I didn't know," said Machim, "whether it was a hog or a man, but concluded to run out in front and try to throw it off. We were making fifteen miles an hour, and I knew we would hit it pretty hard. I ran along the railing and got right on the cowcatcher. We were nearly to the obstruction, and I saw it was a man. I don't know exactly how it happened, but, you know, I was engineer on that train under which a poor devil threw liimself a couple of days ago. I didn't exactly feel like killing a man every day, and quick as a flash I thought I'd try to help him out. It takes a good deal more time to tell it tHan it took to do-it. Anyhow, I got as far down on the cowcatcher as I could, and waited for us to reach the fellow. He lay there like a log, and I didn't know whether he was dead or alive. But I just gave him the benefit of the doubt. It isn't exactly an easy thing to jump from a train going sixteen miles an hour, but I had it to do. We bowled along until we got almost on top of him, aud then I jumped forward and almost with the same motion grabbed him by the coat collar, and, with a mighty heave, rolled us both down the bank. It seems easy telling it, but it was just about as tough a place as ever I was in. The train passed on by, and, anyhow, the fellow wasn't killed. lie was drunk. The fireman slowed up the train and I got aboard again." The Inseparable. "Margery," said Ethelbert, as they sat on the opposite ends of the Turkish divan, "Why am I like the letter Q ?" and a silence fell, broken only by the melodious cough of Margery's warranted New-England throat. "Because, dear," added Ethelbert, "I feel that I am useless without U." Boston Bulletin. THE FOURTEENTH. A Writer Describes a Curious Phase of Life in Paris. Passing one day through the Rue de Lancry, in Paris, my attention was attracted by a large brass plate affixed to the door of one of the houses. It bore the following inscription : "Ambroise Fortix, Fourteenth." A mysterious profession it seemed to be. "Fourteenth!" I repeated to myself: "what can it mean!" And I walked past the house several times, musing on the puzzling inscription; at last curiosity became so ungovernable that I made up my mind to knock at the door, and seek an Introduction to M. Ambroise Fortin. When the servant, in obedience to my summons, opened the door, no better formula of inquiry occurred to me than simply to repeat the words interrogatively : "Monsieur Ambroise Fortix, Fourteenth: ?" "ne is at home from 6 o'clock in the evening till 8," replied the man. "Is he always fourteenth?" I asked, coolly. "Oh, certainly! Monsieur, always," said the servant, in the tone of a person who repels some injurious doubt. That evening, at li o'clock, I returned to the house in the Kue de Lancry. The servant conducted me into an apartment scantily furnished, but adorned with three fine engravings one representing the Feast of Belshazzar, another Cama-cho's wedding, and the third the Prodigal Son at a banquet, ere he wandered forth to feed swine. A side door opened, and I saw enter a very fine young man, elegantly dressed. He was in the act of drawing on a pair of pale kid gloves. Bowing gracefully, he said: "I am ready, Monsieur, let us set out; let us go to dinner." I looked at the engravings, and I obeyed almost mechanically, carried away in spite of myself by the fashionable coolness of his tone and manner. As soon as we were outside the door, M. Fortin said: "The weather is beautiful: if we are not going far, we may as well walk. Where are we to dine ?'' "At the Cafe de Paris," said I, at random. "So much the better," was the. reply: "I detest a city ordinary." I hoped that some explanation would follow, but it did not; and, somehow, I did not like to ask for it directly. I therefore contented myself with humming the opera air, "What may this mystery be ?" As we walked along, M. Fortin asked no questions. He spoke of the tax on dogs; of the scarcity of fish since the opening of the Havre railroad; of a late importation of Cape ericas, at the flower market ; of M. d'Aliger's will ; of a new painting by Couture ; of Dumas' or Balzac's last novel. In short, he discussed all the topics of the day, and that in a very lively, gay, and pleasing manner. I was just beginning to think that the mysterious Fourteenth would turn out to be a newspaper reporter, when we entered the Cafe de Paris. "Monsieur," said I, "allow me to congratulate you on your Parisian erudition: you really speak like a walking journal!" " Ah!" replied he, " in our profession we must know a little of everything. One could not be a Fourteenth on any other terms." Entering the first saloon, I selected a table laid with two covers, and asked him to sit down. M. Fortin looked at me with surprise, and said, " Where will the other guests sit?" "There are none that I know of but ourselves," replied I, taking my place. "Only two!" exclaimed he, drawing back; " then there must be some mistake, and I cannot comprehend the object of eating your dinner." Ho condescended to smile, and seated himself opposite to me. The mystery had become really too oppressive ; and I boldly sought an explanation, which in the natural course of things, did not seem likely to arise. "How," said he, laying down his knife and fork, "did you come to me without knowing my profession? And yet it has begun to make some noise in the fashionable world." "Well! Monsieur, lean only say that this noise has not reached my ears." "You are not then acquainted with the invention of the Fourteenth?" "No, Monsieur Fortin." "The Fourteenth, " said he, solemnly, "supplies a desideratum in our social state. A statistical examination proves, that in Paris invitations to dinners are every day given with so little forethought that, in five hundred houses, on an average, guests to the fatal number of thirteen find themselves assembled at six o'clock. What is to be done. Something must be conceded to the prejudices of women; for, let .their superstitious fears bclonce awakened, and adieu to the hilarity of the evening. Well, the Fourteenth is Tucre, always ready to break the ominous number. A knock comes to my door, and I follow whither I am led, without question or delay. For success in this profession, it is necessary, however, that the fourteenth should be talkative and amusing. At present, in Paris, there are but five Fourteens ; yet I feel certain our numbers will increase rapidly." After this satisfactory explanation, M. Fortin and I enjoyed as pleasant an evening as though we had really been Fourteen. At parting, I made him promise that he would" often share and enliven my bachelor's dinner in his own independent personality, and not as a mere supplementary unit. Stranger than Fiction. The following story has come to the notice of the Bangor (Me.) Commercial, and it well illustrates the oft repeated saying that truth i3 stranger than fiction. Some years before the late war Otis Burton, a former resident of Bangor, left here to seek his fortune in the West. He drifited to Missouri, where he met an accomplished young lady, with whom he fell in love. She was pleased with him, but before he made his passion known she moved to a distant part of the South. About this time the war broke out and the two soon lost all traces of each other. Burton joined the Union army, and was soon afterward wounded, and as it was supposed he would die a letter was sent to his mother informing her that her son could not live, lie, however, was blessed with a good constitution and recovered. He went back to his regiment and was detailed with a company to take supplies across the plains. The party was attacked by Indians and every man in the force except Burton killed. He was reported to have been slain with the rest. The Indians decided to let him live and took him a prisoner to their retreat in the mountains of the Southwest, lie gradually recovered from wounds he had received in the encounter, made himself agreeable to his captors and adapted himself to their ways of living. After he had been in captivity six months or more he was allowed more liberty, and now began to watch for a chance to escape. The Indians had stolen a number of ponies, and among these was one which Burton's practiced eye showed him was highly bred, swift aud gifted with speed and endurance. This pony was cared for and petted by Burton, and ho was allowed to ride him. One day he strayed away further than usual, and though not acquainted with the country made a dash for liberty. He was closely pursued, but the gallant little pony had the " bottom " for a winning race. He rode for three days, and then began to Fee that he was getting out of the hostile country. In the distance he saw a house which he knew must be inhabited by whites. He shouted with joy, feeling that he had gained freedom at last. He knocked at the door of the house and a surprise awaited him. It was opened by the woman he had loved in lang syne. He was at once recognized and received a hearty welcome. "Burton told his adventures and narrow escapes to a willing listener. She, too, told her story. She had married a Confederate officer who was afterward killed in battle, and she now owned the farm she occupied. Is it necessary to tell the rest ? They were betrothed, there was a merry wedding, and the happy couple are still living in a Southwest State. Surely in real life are romances as strange and more interesting than those weaved by the fertile brain of the novelist. Fithy Advice.

Journal sends his pajier au interesting interview with one of the leading justices of the supreme court ot the State of Hew YorK, from which we quote: "Yes, t-ir; I have been on the bench for twenty years, and have never missed an appointment through physical debilities. " In the spring of the year 1 make it an invariable rule to help nature ' clean house ' bv using: a standard blood purifier, and to thisl attribute my extraordinary vigor. I am nearly seventy years old." This man is a philosopher as well as a jurist. The early spring is nature's " house-cleaning " time. Then the blood is full of the impurities of the long winter. Nature needs assistance in this work, for if the purification be not complete the system is liable to attacks of pneumonia, chills and fever, malaria, rheumatism, liver and kidney and blood disorders, headaches, bowel derangements, and the debilitating efl'eots of summer heat. The use of a pure vegetable, non-alcoholic preparation is then all-important. " No. I should not like my name to bs usel publicly, but you may say," said the jurist, " that tho only medicine I use is Dr. David Kennedy's Favc rite Remedy, of Rondout, N. Y. a most excellent preparation, which I always warmly commend to my friends everywhere." The Favorite Remedy has been twenty years in use, and it is said that it is pleasant to take, cures in ninety per cent, of cases, and can barm no one. It challenges the fullest comparison as a preventive and curative. It is purely vegatable, non-alcoholic, and can be used with the utmost safety by children and adults.
