My name is Audrey iLovol, and 1 am the eldest daughter of tho Kevcrend Archibald Lovel, and Millicont, his : wife. Tho Kovercnd .Archibald has' been for many years •visar of ^t. Hubsrt's church at King's Lorton. He lives in a beautiful, old- fashioned vicarage, just -outside the lown of King's Lorton, a house such as you sco in illustrated Christinas annuals, with gable ends and great .•stacks of chimneys, and • great win- iflowf- -with picasailt seats in the deep bays. Tangle of roses and jasmine •cover It In the summer; in.the winter there is a wealth/-jjj, green holly. A -large,'old-fashioned garden surrounds it, where every kind of tree grows and-flower blooms. A bright, sunny "orchard lies boyond that, the'gates of which lead into the clover meadow,and aatlhofoot o'f the meadow runs the •clear, deep, hoautiful river Linne, the loveliest river in England, and tho great torment of my mother's life, for the boys were always coming to grief over it, either skating when the ice was not an inch thick, or swimming •when the current was too strong.— rowing when . the wind was against them—fishing and falling .head-first into the stream. That river was the one blot on my mother's otherwise Jiappy life. , i jMy father, not being by any means •a rich man, was blessed with the usual large number of children. He was heard to say, despairingly, that . he should cease to count them after the number of seven was reached. We were nine in all. Six hearty, healthy, hungry boys, and three girls. I was the eldest. Then oame the •eldest son, certainly the most terrible boy in tho world. My mother used to .say of him,'"Bob is all a boy," and that means "a great deal. Archie, tho (second, \vas not quite his equal in mis- .chief, but he had every desireto.be bo. Willie, the third, was. a quiot, well-behaved boy, who lived in continual fear of his two elder brothers. "Then came a sweet, fair-haired little maiden; it was rest for one's eyes to look \ipon her. She was called after •our mother, Millicent. Then three more boys, tho sole object of whose •existence seemed to be eating and noise, varied with skirmishes of all kinds, carried on in all places and at .all times •— skirmishes that almost made my hair stand on end. Then -came tho last, sweetest, fairest, and "best, a wonderfully fat, lovely baby girl, named Trottio; the roundest, prettiest baby ever seen, worshipped ' 'by the family, adored by the boys. "The boys!" Does any sympathetic reader know what that means? If you suddenly hear a tremendous crash like the roar of artillery, or a great upheaval like a tropical earthquake, and you ask in alarm, "What is it?" the inevitable answer is, "Tho boys." If there is a rush up and down the stair- •oase, followed by sudden shrieks, unearthly noises, succeeded by silence -even more terrible, and you ask, "What is it?" • "The boys." Any un. ..expected explosion, any unforseen accident, any unthought-of hap, had but • -one source, "the boys." Yet how we loved them, and what fine, manly fellows they were. But , 'they were the very torment of onr /lives, How they enjoyed luring that unhappy little jnaiden. Millie, into tho most unheard-of situations. The only •one they held in supreme - awe was Baby Trottie, who ruled them with a rod of iron. 1 A large, happy! healthy family, and . at the time this story opens I was just , eighteen. I had, thanks to my father's insistence, received an excellent edu- '•cation, and was now supposed to he helping my mother. Being the eldest daughter I had per, -tain-privileges. I had a dear little s' • room Pf wy o wn > the window of which , overlooked the green rnoadow and the ''' Jovely brimming river! I had the . 4*4*7 to my father's library, a privilege • --ii A- <( (he hoys" most virtuously Altogether I loved and en^ my life, with its simple duties ' arid pleasures. I had thought little of IQYP and'lovers, The boys .absorbed . all • my leisure time—t-o naye ft)Wft •frpjn, frowning, to keep them from 'talking their necks t?y sliding 4«. w n " ' great psryed, balusters, exhortjnr CttAWEUlf. hfcws ol Lord Latimef •& tnftf-' iflge aftd return spread like wild-firo over the country; nothing else was •spoken of. "It will be good for us and good for the poor." said hiy father. "Lord Latimer is very generous. But 1 noticed one thing—my father never spoke ot any other quality o! tho earl, lie was, generous, and he attended church regularly—two fino qualities. Our children were all on the qui vive to see tho ne\V lady of Lorton'si Cray. We heard that the old lord had suddenly returned without having given <»»e moment's warning, bringing Avith him his young wifo and her l&dy's-Mald. Sho was beautiful, they saidj as an angel, her hair glittered like gold, and her face was fair as tho dawn of tlio morning. She wore rich dresses of strange texture, and rare jewels, ftonie said she was proud an<3 capriciouo, others that' she was mosi loving and gentle. Every, ono gave different opinion of her, and ( sho had made a c'ifferent impression on everj person vho had seen her—from whig! fact my father argued that she mus be a wopderful woman. Lord Latimer rode over to see my father tbo day after his arrival, an act of attention which delighted him. He „ , ; behaved most generously—ho gave no .affluence, no luxury Mm a check fol . | 10 po6p) ft oh k fa the chur-ch; ho promised to assist with alterations on which my father My father took Hfe^ery easily—the btiys seonted to look upon him as » tfc- Idvet Mend atfd a nfttitfal etiemy; no' skirinishea were indulged in in ^ Ma presence, ho practical jokes. When they had misbehaved themselves to any great cxteht, they were very wary in turning corners, lest he' should spring upon them suddenly* and a peculiar shrill whistle was 'the signal for clearing the coast: it meant that he was coming, and that summary justice might be expected. My father was a well-bred gentleman, and a splendid scholar; he spent tho greater part of his life in writing and reading. His income was a small one, but my mother inanaged it. My mother was one of the sweetest and moat gracious of women, loved by everyone! tho soul of generosity and kindness. Bhe never raised her voice, oven -io tho boys. She was essentially a motherly woman, and the boys wore tho pride, the delight, the torment, and joy of her life, She was wellborn, well-bred', a lady in every sense Of the word. She Could make puddings and cakes, darn stockings, and yet in the drawing room she had all the graces and sweet stateliness of ^an accomplished lady. I may mention that the boys' wardrobe was something fearful to behold, but my mother understood it. There was in our house-, and, .indeed, there was a difficulty in making. -both ends moot. But wo were very happy, very loving, devoted to ono another. There was no quarreling, a terrific fight among tho boys did not always mean a quarrel. There was no selfishness: there is no such school for learning self-denial and self-control as a large family. About two miles from tho vicarage stood the grandest mansion in the county, the residence of Lord Latimor, the greatest man in the county, and it was called Lortoh's Cray. It was the wondor of our childish lives. A magnificent mansion, with thick, gray, ivy-covered walls. It had been built in the reign of Queon Elizabeth, and held every beauty of tho architecture of that period. Tho rooms were all large and lofty, with great windows; the floors and staircases were all' of polished oak: the ceilings painted, tho entrance hall a marvel of stained- glass windows, with a magnificent groined roof. Once or twice in our lives wo had boon allowed to go through this house. It produced such an impression on the boys that they were silent for some days afterward. The. picture-gallery ran the whole length of the house, and held some priceless paintings. The portraits of the Latimers for many generation* past hung there, with a fine collection of modern paintings. The drawing-room was a magnificent apartment; we held our breath as wo stood on the threshhold; oven Bob and Archie collapsed—they were speechless. It was all white 'and gold. There was no color except the rich bloom of the rare flowers that stood in the jardinieres; the hangings were of white velvet and white satin embroidered with gold; chairs, couches, lounges tho same. From the large windows there Was a superb view of the square of fountains and tho deep green of the rich foliage beyond. There was a spacious, banqueting- hall, a cozy dining-room, a library that was unequaled. for its size, a morning-room opening on a rose garden. The great state apartments wore in the eastern wing. There were in- numer*able pretty little rooms, innumerable pretty nooks and corners in the old house. It was a house full of surprises; where it was least expected one would find a large window with comfortable scats, a lonely little room, a door opening on to a quaint staircase that led to tho grounds. Then, all over the place there was a perfect wealth of ornaments, the accumulated treasures of long generations—and the Latimers had always been very wealthy. The grounds were magnificent; the fine old trees, the beautiful, undulating park, the lovely fairy dells where violets and cowslips grew, the matchless terraces, the broad marble steps that led from one to the other—it was all beautiful. ' When we came from our last visit, my young brothers looked at me with contemplative, solemn eyes. "Audrey," said Bob, "you will be, I think, good-looking. I hope you will remember your brothers, and marry well." "A brother-in-law with a house like that would suit me," said Archie emphatically. •>0f course, as your brothers, we ghould bo offered the run of the house," said Bob, "In fact, it would doubtless be thrown open to us." How little I thought, while they teased mo and enjoyed themselves over this future brother-in-law—how little I dreamed of what was to be! Lord Latimer had not been to King's Lorton within my recollection. The house was beautifully kept. There was a faithful old housekeeper, Mrs. Heath; an ancient butler, who seemed to be part of the place; and plenty of servants. Everything was. kept in readiness; no matter when or bow the old lord might return, he would have found everything prepared for him at any moment. For some years there was no mention made oi Lord L.atr imer's return; all at once we heard that ho was coming hack, and bringing with him a yowg wife, MA. young wife!" cried my mother, when she heard it.

In his introductory remarks Director "Whitcher says: About one^half of the value of tho manure from an ox or cow is found in the liquid excrement, hence at the outset it becomes necessary to adopt some plan by which this may be saved. Tho common, and probably the best plau is to use absorbents, which will readily take up this liquid and save it: but the ni* trogen contained in liquid manures is easily fermentable, and when fermenting gives off nmmonia,tod as this nitrogen represents* more than one third of the total value of both the solid and liquid excrement, it at once becomes evident that it should be carefully managed. The director then calls attention to the fact that manure in mass quite sltre to heat—horse manure "is §12 degrefS of this levels, boil feef ore 06ftifflf 'td S hfeifc 6f 210 grees, of if '& desfcefot 5§" &ttd6 ftrf valley below the level of -tKes tea ddfd ac some alterations on which my had set his heart; lie inquired after the mnn'boi' of children at the vicar- ago, smiled when ho heard there were siK boys: ho waa—and wo all liked him best for that—most amiable and agreeable to our dear mother; he spoko of his wife, said tho journey liad tired her, and that sho was not quite woll—but there was a curious tightening of tho lips as he spoko ol her. The next day was Sunday, and wo were all interested, knowing that we should BOQ Lady Latimer at church. 1 need not say that our family pew wan a sight to be remembered. Nino healthy, happy faces ornamented it. I am sorry to add that tho conduct of the inmates was not always above, suspicion. If Bob looked particularly devout, or Archie collected and calm, I knew that a dire catastrophe impended. It is not in boys 1 nature to remain quiet for moro than tsn minutes, if for so Ion*. I am ashamed to confess with what longing of impatience wo awaited tho coming of the Lortoii's Cray party to church. Bob, who excelled himself in wickedness that morning, was busy, I could see, making a caricature on one side of the .leaves of his prayer- book. Archie was making a desperate effort to become possessed of it. Millie, seated between the two belligerents, had a terrible time of it, and looked ready to cry. I had just restored order when they came. I saw something' that looked to mo like a vision of grace and lovoli- ness floating up tho aisle of .the old church. I saw rich silk and velvet sweep tho ground, priceless laco fall in perfumed folds, jewels gleam here and there; in tho breathless silence the soft frou-frou of tho rich silk was distinctly heard, I did not sec her 1'uco until sho was seated in tho pew anil all the excitement incident upon their coming was over; then I looked at her. I loved her that first moment; I have loved her ever since, and I shall love her until I die. In what words can I tell tho dainty, marvelous beauty of that fair young face, tho perfection of its features, the loveliness of its coloring? It was the perfection of fair and brilliant beauty. A low, white brow, round which golden- rings of hair clustered, shining rings of rich, rare gold; delicate, level brows, dark, beautiful eyes, u mouth that seemed at onco all good and all sweetness, a delicate chin, perfectly molded— a face that, once seon, could novor be forgotten. [TO BK CONTINUED,] Swimming Cavalry. Some very interesting exercises in swimming cavalry took place lately on the Cabul river at Peshawuv. The Thirteenth D. 0. O. Bengal lancers have been practicing their horses in a large tank in their lines and on the river for some time. One squadron took cover along the liver bank and kept up a/ steady lire to protect the passage of the other squadron, who placed their arms, accoutrements, and clothes in large country boats, and conducted thoir horses into 1 10 water. Some horses seemed to thoroughly enjoy themselves in the water; others became ' unmanageable through fear. However, the opposite bank was reached and war paint resumed, and the sqxtadron was with most creditable rapidity taking -measures to protect theircomrades, crossed in like manner, lie >Vns a Villain.

Passing to the application of manure, tin experiment in fall and spring application is given, both lots being spread on top. The fall applied gave !i,844 pounds of Corn and (5,OliO pounds of fodder and the spring applied 3,774 pounds of corn and 5,271 pounds of fodder. In a further trial fall applied gave 58,530 pounds of corn fodder from two and one half acres, and spring applied 57,005 pounds. In a succeeding year throe and one half cords fall applied gave } 0.48 tons fodder and spring applied 11.72 tons. On another secJ;J07i where double the amount of manure was used the product was 23.17 tonsVul 34.70 tons respectively. .In the latter case the manure was plowed under and the director concludes that when applied in the fall it should not be plowed under. Fall applied manure when put on top is subject to blowing 1 winds which may affect fine manure when dried, as it often does dry when on top of the ground. Sharp rains will also run manure in between furrows; hence we should, not regard this single trial as conclusive on the point. Another feature of the trial is to be considered, namely: That the fall applied manure, if it is that left over from the previous winter and an any event so far as the director informs us to the contrary, is likely to contain very much less water, carbon, etc., and correspondingly greater amounts of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash. It is not unlikely that the resiilts secured in this respect by Director Whitcher arc due to this fact and not to time of application. It is clear enough that if manure in standing' over summer suffers by evaporation of water or by fermentation, 'los- ing.not only water but carbon, hydrogen and oxygen until nearly one half of its weight is gone, without losing any of its minerals, as it could not under cover, and little of its nitrogen, us experiments show it will not when fairly well cared for, that it should be moro concentrated and therefore more affective. given, it is not fit for use, for it is not wholesome. It is better to mix tho bran with tho milk, skimmed, still sweet, if possible, and feed it immediately. Ifor" if bran is added to the milk in a condition of incipient sourness, it will produce rapid fermentation and considerably r6duce the value of tho food, besides making it injuriously \inwholesOme. The excess of acid produces indigestion, Which is the cause of that disease of the swine, especially of the yoting animals, which is popularly called black teeth. This is not a disease Of the teeth, tis is supposed, but the result of the corroding products of a sour stomach. There is moro profit in a lot of young pigs fed properly in this way than in any other farm prodttct, The milk is without countable value for any other use, and is a waste, while the clover costs but little, and its whole value is returned in the manure left by the pigs, and duo to the elements of fertility left in the milk. This, too, is a way of making money from the atmosphere, for the fat takes nothing from the soil t and is made up solely of atmospheric ma'tter, and thus the soil is enriched, while the farmer gets all that is possible from the land without ally cost.

Louis Republic. Tho Wild Iloiu. Some writers on swine believe that most of the present breeds of swine come from the wild boar, an illustration of which is given in connection with this article. Domestication and crossing have greatly modified this animal, and the time needed to mature has been greatly reduced, Tho observation has been made that when swine, even after long domestication, arc compelled to run at largo and hunt their food, after a few generations, they greatly change toward the old types. They, become good travelers, long legged, and if they have to burrow foi their food, become long snouted. Coin- paring our modern breeds with the old wild hog, we can but realize how great nnel fruit Shflnltitge. % ,~f, A California fruit company has been ' investigating the effect of irrigation' on.'/ fruit as regards its shrinkage when lv s dried. They found rather uttexpebt i A eclly that the irrigated fruit had less '", shrinkage, and was therefore worth ,. nore in its green state than fruit growit- ,• without irrigation. The conclusion 19 / that the greater amount of water itt , the soil enabled the roots to take ttft- more mineral matter.

E, Rockwood, writing in Ohio Farmer, says: The intelligent farmer has been doing this all summer, in fact ever since they were born, but some pigs do not get a great deal of pushing at any time, If they have been neglected so favi begin now to get them in shape to fatten. This does not mean that they shall be fed much corn; in fact none, is necessary. 3xit they should have plenty of bran and middlings wet up with milk or water, and grass to eat as they like, Plenty of fresh water is also necessary. Don't think because you give them wet feed they do not need drink, If it is offered them they will show that they do. Give them clean quarters, Don't say they are only hogs and prefer filth, I believe hogs are much maligned in this respect. A hog may lie in filth, but that is no reason to show that he would pot prefer a bed of clean straw. I firmly believe, and observations will bear me put, that a pig kept clean by washing will grow faster than one whose skin is plastered with mud and filth. Where there are many pigs it might not !>& convenient to keep them clean, but with only a few a weekly scrubbing will certainly be beneficial. Come to think of it, why should not a bog thrive better with eleaa skin as well as a horse or a cow? It certainly would be more conducive to the health of the animal as well as furnishing a more desirable article of food when his hogship comes to be killed, Charcoal, ashes and salt, mixed, m'ake an excellent preventive of disease; •' for hogs.

"The old boar" had a large tusk, a long snout, and a much larger head in proportion to tho rest of the body, than is the case with our boar of to-t]ay. His ears were small and pointed upwards, and these were generally black at maturity. His growth was not attaineduntil he was about 0 years of age, and the duration of his life was supposed to be about thirty years. The sow had but one litter per year, and this was usually composed of only five or six pigs. They were suckled for three or four months before being- weaned, and followed the sow about for about three years till large enough to protect themselves. It was common for a single sow to be followed by three litters of different ag'es, but if you wait until next spring you must take what is left. E. G.
