Soli and l'lnnt Food. SJII varies in plant food no greatly tbat it is not unusunl to And two ndjoiaing fields entirely unalike. Ono fluid may be light and sandy and the other of a clay texturo and heavy. Tho frequency of the application of ruinuras or fertilizers, their quality and the character of the crops (frown on tbo soil make almost impossible to determine tho relative proportions of plant food contained in any plot by analysis, as an analysis of a selected portion of the soil only gives knowledge of the kind of roil used, that adjoin'.ng being entirely different. To add to (ho difficulty, the plant foods may uc in a soluble condition on one plot, while on other plots plant foods may be abundant but not available. It is an imperative necessity, therefore, for the farmer to determine for himself by observation unci experiment what his soil r<quires in the shop? of plant food. Fertilizes may contain a greater portion of plant food than is equivalent to their cost, and yet the p 'ant food may be in such shape and condition as to bo useless to the tanner for immediate effect on his crops. It is true tnnt tho insoluble materials of the fertilizer may prove beneficial to him in the future, after chemical action in the soil has reduced •ho substances to a state of solubility, but farmers who can procure fertilizers do so with the view of securing available plant food for tho crops which are to be grown immediately. It is when the fertil- Z.TS contain' 1 .their nitrogen in the shape of nitratos nnd sulphate*, or their phos- pntcs us acidulated bone, that tho best results nro obminod. Peruvian guano and the several salts of potash are always iD excellent form for plant food. Kefuse materials from manufactories, however, though often rich in the required elements, are not always in an available 'orin. There are legions of farmers who do aot realize tho fact that they use tons of manure which is useless to plants until late in the season, for no mnnuro can be appropriated by plants until it is des- poBed in tho manure heap or after it has been npplied.on the Hold. There may be portions of the manure soluble, esoeciully if tht- urine has lo.m saved and absorbed, but it may n quire two or three years for the whole of the manure to change its form, and as much depends also on the composition of the manure as on the fertilizes, lor tho manure heap is composed only of what the runner hns made it, thr> kind of food used and the ages of his stock, while the manner in which the tho uiiinuro is kept largely nffects its value.—I'eoplo and I'a'.not.

How keenly Florence counted every hated step on the stairs! «l will rail her ladyship 's maid to you, my lord," the footman voluntocled. '••Tell Miss Wnrtliington I am here," his lordship said.

He broke the silence ttrst. "Well, Miss Worthlngtoii, you see, as usual, your wishes have prevailed; and contrary to all my ideas of right, I hava como to see you once more—for the last time, 1 suppose; for our paths in the future will be widely apart. You tell m« in your note of yesterday that you cannot bt happy unless you hear forgiveness from my lips. If so little lies between you and bap. Illness, Heaven knows I would not deprive you of It. For your suke alone I have come, and that at least my conscience may bo clear of over voluntarily causing you pain. Do not fear that I have to reproach you—a womun's idea of honor diners wide, ly from a man's." What could she say to him?

But on* or the other you have wronged, and are wronging, with open ayes and bitterly." His reproaches were sweet to her, harsh-sounding as they were. "You onoe refused my love, Florence. Well, that you had a per- feot right to do, boyond a doubt; but you had no right to steal my heart, biding from me the while that yours was not free to give In return. You hud less right to recall your refusal and bind yourself to me with a voluntary oath, forcing me to si. ienee. You hud no right, agnlit, Florence,, 10 leave my letter unanswered, to keep ino lu such cruel suspense, boeiinse you wore too cowardly or careless to tell me the truth." «/ never have had one line from you, 1'Mllp, since I loft your father's house," she deulured steadily.

Set your conscience at rjst, If that only Is troubling you; for your happiness must be nearly complete, I am forced to believe." "My misery Is, if you mean that," she said, In passionate tones, "It Is a mockery to wish mo happiness, aud you know It, for 1 am utterly and hopelessly miserable!"

A more brill- llant one could scarcely be Imagined—at least in a conventional sense—and I suppose that is all you care for." "I am utterly wretched," she answered, breaking down aud weeping bitterly. "I hate my life, I loathe my future husband; the sound of his voice sickens me, his step Is the signal for mo to wish to fly from him," she continued passionately. She yearned for a word of love, and he would not grunt her one. "A dangerous admission, Miss Worth- lngton, and ono 1 cannot respect you for making or confessing, hut it is safe with me. 1 suppose you have counted well the compensation you will have for absent love or want of sympathy with Lord Vernon. Dresses, jewels, carriages, a coronet—all these aro, I suppose, beyond price to a woman's heart, or—thank Heaven 1—to some women." He got up hurriedly and stood before ber. "Florence, you declare your hatred of the life you are choosing—worse still, of your futuro husband. Believe me, you will do him less wrong In sending him from you now than In marrying hlin Leave the brilliant future you have chosen. Be my wife, Floronce; my right Is greater than Lord Vernon's oven now. Prove your words to me. If you love me as you say, your life shall lie one long dream of happiness. I can give you that, my darling, If lesser things are lucking. Oh, Florence, come to ine, throw all your pride, all your false ambition, to the winds, while thcro is yet time tnsavo yourself!" He was standing elo.a to her; bis arms were held towards her, love shining In Ills passion-lit face, and from bis soft, dreamy eyes. She was tempted almost beyond etidti- raueo; but fear withheld her even more than pride or ambition. She glanced round, as If appealing to the walls to aid her. A moment more, and she must have yielded —would have been In his arms; but he saw her hesitation and would not brook it. If she had repented as she said— suffered us she said—bow eagerly would she have caught at a straw to save hnrsnlfl He dropped his outstretched arms. "Ah, Florence, I have judged you rightly! You would take me could I offer you all that is now so nearly within your grasp. For my own sake, for my love ulonc, I am little to you. ne It so, wus worse than mod to try to totnpt you again." "Philip, I dare not. do what you ask.— Surely 1 am pledged, beyond any power to release me, to Lord llorcourt Vornonf" "And I ask you whom you aro now wronging most? Who will suflbr mostf I cuti tell you that even now—yourself; but I scorn your love now, Florence. I have tested it aud can sco its worthlcssuess." Shu rose and clung to him, but he put her from him; he put down her clinging arms; and she fell back into her chulr,cov ering her face with her bauds und erylng bitterly. "May you llnd happlnoas In the path you have chosen, and may we never meet again 1" Philip said. Her bands still covered her eyes; she scarcely heard his words; she only kuow that her pain was agonizing. She longed for courage to break her gilded chains, and it wus almost coming to her; but, whilo hesitating, she was lost. In another moment his quick step had passed from the room, and ho was gone from the house, leaving the future Ludy Harcourt Vernon trembling und crying in her chulr, convulsed with grief, craving for power to break her bonds. "Ah, lie was mine—mine; he would give mo now all the sweetness of his love—all; and 1 have lost hlin 1" she moaned. But In the black darkness came u gleum of sunshine.

Miss Wortbingtoii wus indisposed in mind and body—Lord Harcourt Vernon not at all in body, but vory much in mind and temper; and ull of Ludy Margaret Mcddowes' smiles failed to win an answering one— ull of the Uoipitoss of llaven 'i effort, all of hor delicuto flattery could not dissipate the cloud from his lordships' brow. His pride hud been hurt, his plans disarranged, while Florenco did not appeur with conciliating smiles to woo his forgiveness. "Tho truth Is, Lord ILircourt," Lady Margaret suid, "my cousin bus been overworked lately. This trousseau business is more fatiguing than one thinks, and the great heat bus exhausted her. It will bo everything to hor when you uuu got her In. to the country, poor girl! She is looking quite fugged, though It seems to mo bride elect always do look so." But Lord llarcourt's mind wus not one whit relieved of an ugly suspicion which hud tiiken possession of it. Miss Wortb ingtoii had denied herself to him, but other visitors had uceu more fortunate. "Ludy Margaret, will you forgive my asking you u questlunr" "Certainly Lni/I Uuj-court," her ladv- ship nnawerdi! a little curious. '•Miss Worthlngton altered all my ar rungomeuts I Ills morning.

Ludy Haven had been fatigued during the day, and greatly worried since her return, and she could not now rully qulukly from this sudden attack ; hut Ludy Margaret 's presence of mind raroly forsook Iter— she was quloker-wllted than her mother. She laughed lightly and prettily. "Ob, Mint is your bote uolr, Lord Harcourt I Your question is easily answered. We havo fortunately withhold nothing from you regarding your connection with Our family.

"Margaret, pray be careful I" Lady Ho- ' ven said, with sudden horror, as If the walls hud ears. "You need not fear, mother; Florence's own suspicions seem to be in some way aroused, if 1 may Judge from a few words she bus vouchsafed to mo lately. Of cottrso I would not discourage her fur tho world. Besides, matters have gone too far now.— Hut I am glad Lord Harcourt was not fitted to be my husband.

At the usual hour of visiting bis fair fluneco Lord Harcourt Vernon once more dismounted from his horse ul Lady Haven's house in marges Struct. Ho know chero could bo no denial lu store for him tills time, and he ascended the stairs with loss dignity and more elation than usual. He found Miss Worlhington waiting lor him, doubtless laden with apologies and regrets for her shortcomings of tho previous day.— And even ids lordship was uruiwil from his upiilhy by tho sight of his llunuee's fuco —it was so colorless, "Florence, I fear you were really sullev. ing more limn 1 thought yesterday. It wus not caprice which prevented your see. Ing me—-null l really gavo vou credit for It." Florence raised her eyes sleadily to Ids lordship's lace and answered calmly— "Nevertheless, Lord llarcourl, I must confess thai il was caprice— even worse than caprice, 1 was perfectly well yester. trrilay, ami my denial wus prenicdltaled," in mute usto'^isiuncnt his lordship looked "t his (laiiceo.

TO BK CONTINUED. Testing Cows In conversation with some farmers about weeding out their poor cows, it was suggested that it record of their yield should be kept for guidance and information. All admitted the value of it, but none of them had done it, (he excuse being tbat it was too much trouble. That seemB to be the buabeur with all dairymen, "two much work." They say we have enough to do now. netting up at 4 o'clock and working until 7 or 8 every day, without undertaking anything; more. Ther6 is some reason in this, but >s the labor intelligently done? The ordinary dairyman at auseasons oan easily find time to test at least a portion of his cows to determine" their ability to pay for their food. It ie easy to have a sprinof eoale and elate banging in a convenient place in the stable, whera it is but a moment's work to record each milking. Once started the interest will soon develop, and milking without weighing milk will not be thought of. fry it dairy farmers and see if it "don't pay.'

IIHling- T». Level Culture Too much hilling up around the plants is not an advantage. Nearly all the experiments made to determine tho effects of hilling and of level culture me favorable to level cultivation of nearly ail kinds of plants, not oven excepting squaahea, cucumbers and melonR, especially on sandy HOJIfl. How to Feed Hops. Feeding hogs on tho ground i» one of the old time practices that xhould now be followed only by such farmers as are still uiinga crooked stick for a plow, and a>-e planting by the moon. Keed thorn on tho lloor, and the grain will bo eaten up clean and tho hogB will not bo compellod to take so much dirt with it. Give a hog half a chance, and he is quite a gentleman at his feeding. That Troublesome HUB. For protecting cucumbers, squashes and molons from tho common and troublesome striped bug, thn Ohio experiment station last year hud good success by tho UBO of tobacco powder, tho refuao of the cigar factories. Aside from its value us an insecticide, tho tobacco acts as a mulch and fertilizer. Suit for Sheep. Tbo Sheep Dreeder Biiys to keep tho sheep in a healthy condition it is necessary that they bo supplied with sullicient amount of Miline mutter. When this is wanting in the pasture, as it very frequently is except near tho sencoast, it must bo supplied ariitici illy. S dt in more or less poiHonoud to worms and flukes, hence it is necessary to givo sheep a plentiful supply. 8heep liaising. If one wishes to go extensively into steop raising ho must have cheap land and a wide range, but a small flock can be kept to advantage on any farm, and tho richer and more valuable tho land is in such a CUHO tho bottor it iu. This indicates thn two branches of sheep husbandry, nnd with either of tho two methods sheep may bo kept profitably almost anywhere in our wholo country. As a rulo, any good soil will produce a good crop of beans, provided it iB not yet wot, and in a climato whoro you can be certain of 80 days of worm weather, deanu should be planted in the Bpring, about the time corn is put in, but may be delayed a week or so it more convenient. The most popular varieties for winter use, when ripe and dry, ore tho small or medium-sized white beans, such as tho White Kidnoy, White Marrow and White Wonder. The latter is a comparatively sew variety, and said to be of excellent quality and very productive. The Karniur a Manufacturer. Every former who keeps stock is a uian ufucturfr. His crops are the raw material and his animals the machines for maim facturing, and his beef, pork, wool, butter etc, are tho flnishod products. In order to determine if there iB nny profit in tno manufacture ho must know the cuat of raw material and the expense of transforming it into the manufactured product. A maker of plows who did not i know this would soon go to the wall. Ho«r many of our readers koop their accounts so accurately us to determine it? Spring: Fig*. Tho spring pigs must be turned into pork within nine or ten months at most if you expect nny profit from them. To this end they must be well looked after from tho start. The sow and pigs should huve a warm, olean and comfortable nest from the Btart. Milk, bran, shortB and oats, with plenty of good water, should be the principal diet for the sow. Within two weeks from birth the pigs will begin to eat, and within four weeks oan use considerable milk. As soon as they can oat grusB turn them out on pasture, and for 5 months feed them for lean meat and ruusole. Not much corn should be given during this period. Save that until you are ready to fatten. a HE HOME. He Was 80 Human. BBLSOTED. Ilia magic was not (ar to seek, He wss so human I Whether strong or weak. Far from his kind be neither aank nor soared. But aat an equal guest at every board. No beggar ever felt htm condescend, Mo prince presume; for still himself be bore At manhood's simple level, and when e 'r He met a stranger there he left a friend. If you want to walk straight yourself don't watch another man's feet When y'ouget a giant down it is never safe until you out off bis head. It will nut bo hard to speak kind Jworde if you cultivote fine feelings. The best way to find the truth-is to be willing that the truth shall • find you. The virtue of the soul does not consist in flying high, but in walking orderly.— Mpntaigne, "Blessed is be that oonsidereth the poor j the Lord wi'I deliver him in time of trouble." The sacred Scriptures tell us the best way of living, the noblest way of suffering, and the most comfortable way of dying.--Flavel. The world is full of life. Each life is a tune; so the world is a great orchestra, and of thetn all how few tunes are played through, how many ended- as they were not begun—Taylor. Love. Love is never lost. He who loves truly and purely is a gainer through his love, even though that love be unrequited j and unrequited love is really a blessing to the one toward whom it goes out unselfishly, Love is of God) and it betters him who gives it, and him on whom it is lavished. Love seeds no bargain or return to make it a twofold blessing.—Christian Inquirer, * Man art Omnibus. , There it no <w of w that does not have a twinge of consciousness along the line ol Oliver Wendell Holmes' wise observation: "A man is an omnibus in which nil of his ancestors are riding." And yet. to tell the truth, you hold the reins, and you ti> vi! tho right tf eviction. We MT not so irrevertii' ns to say in common parlance, "Turn the rRscals out," but surely one ought not to be obliged to carry more than his own reasonable burden. Reaching- Upffaril. A wise choico between two Bhares ol service, or methods of work, is shown in choosing the higher rather than tho lower-, not necesHnrily in choosing the more trying, rather than tbo easier. Tho higher iB alwnys better thin tho lower; but the morj trying ia nnt alwnyc better than that which iB ea»y. There is merit in pain or privation or hardship; but thero is a sure gain in reaching upward, instead of being coutontcd with n lowur level. Tho Elements of Nnceess. Success presupposes conditions and preparation^ for it,—the energy, self-abnera- tion which bringi brawn and breadth and dignity, strength, wi-dom, and skill. Wc cannot safely jump into success; we are likely to get hurt, and foon full back dis- hearted to whero wo belong. Somo try to succeed by jumping into their father's shoes; but these shoes do not fit, and c;uise the youth to walk so awkwardly thnt he generally makes a fool of himself. Nearly everything of real worth has to be earned. To be appreciated and judicial} - appropriated, our possessions must have cost their value. The toil and struggle nnd plodding that brings solid gain, brings also thu mature experience, thorough dis- cidline, and hard knocks that make up stalwart manhood nnd permanent success. ClierrfulliesN. Much depends upon n cheerful start for tho day. The man who leaves MB borne with a scowl on his brow, and a snap at his children, and a tart speech to his wife instead of 11 kina, is not likelj to be pleasant company for anybody during the day; ho will probably como home with the temper of a porcupine. Wine plans should bo laid for every day;, HO that it be not an idle saunter, or an uimlem bustling to and fro. Yet to make good speed on tbo right track wo must not start over-loaded; not too many things to bo undertaken, lest they prove a hasty botebwork. The journey ia not made in a cushioned car, but on foot; nnd tho most galling is vexations and worrying cure. One stop at n time is all that tbe moat busy Christian can tnke, and steady wnlking ought not to tire any healthy body or soul. It is tho overstrained rush, whether in business or atudy, that breaks peoplo down; OBpeci- ally the inBane greed for wealth, or the mad ambition goardiug brain and nerves to a fury. Tho shattered nerves and sudden deaths in all our great business cen tres tell a sad story. A good rule is to take short viows. Sullicient to tbo day is tho toil thereof; no man is strong enough to bear to-day's load with to-morrow's load piled on top of it. Tho only look far ahead that you and I should lake should be tbo look toward the judgment seat and tbe offered crown nt the end of tha race. That is the way to get a taste of heaver in advance.—Dr. Cuylor.

This was a sweeping dei-laiailoa, und old forms and practices were shuttered by It. Yet It wits a true solution of tho rlddlo. Ho uses no acalpel, nothing moro tbau a hurmle-s lotion, which chnnucs the birthmark Into an ordinary scab. Many of tho most eminent Hoo.'oiy people of ihu metropolis, who had been lor years debarred from public llfo through a disfigurement of the face, testify every day to tho success of tho Professor's methods.

The banker, uftcr reciting, Uko hundreds of other correspondents, how ho had been cured of luvoral very ugly marks on his face, suggi-sted that tho Professor write a book on liormat- ology.
