This was the day of gy'ni'ted families, the day to which he w 'Vso long looked forward, thinking to v'ake in his 'own bed in Randolph ascent, reconciled with all men and peatlng tho footprints of his youth; li'dMi'ere He was alone, pacing the al- jys of "a wintry garden and filled with I'iteritial thoughts. |A'nd,that reminded him: why was he Jorie?'."and where was Alan? The Bought.of the festal morning and the fieVgaMtatlons reawakened his desire 1 "'"' ' 3 -friend, and he began to call for ly name. As the sound of his Ej}ce«died away, he was aware of tho ' ^itness of the silence that environed i.,', But' ,for the twittering of the jpjarxowB and, the crunching of his own i" tlie'frozen'snow, the whole pridless world of hung over him itranced, and the stillness weighec cm his mind with a horror of soli- callingat intervals,but now witl ^moderated voice, he made the hasty of the garden, and finding neith- i nor trace of man in all its ever- greien/ coverts, turned at last to the About the house the silence dttlftkafdf^ttll ditafoused, only ode foot isible to John. Bilt hBW thai llght^was itt the rdoitt, the worst seemed over; it was ft disgusting business, but flot Iftoi'A than dlsgtlstlngj and it was wiih nd great ap- that John proceeded 'to ntaltfi;fthe. circuit-, of thfr tabled hlsxlast- edWjEtaratlvely tranquil moment of that day, No sooner-had he turned the eor- nei',.no soondf had his eye^ alighted oft the body, than he gave a smothered, breathless cry, and fled out of the rObni and out of the house. It was not Alan who lay there, but a man well-up in years, of stern countenance and Iron-gray locks, and It was no drunkard, 'for the body lay in a black pool of blood, and the open eyes stared upon the ceiling! To and fro walked John before the door. The extreme sharpness of the air acted on his nerves like att astringent, and braced them swiflly. Presently, he not relaxing in his disordered walk, the images began to come clearer and stay longer in his fancy; and next the;pdwer of thought came back to him, and the horror and danger of his situation rooted 'him to,the ground. He grasped his forehead, and staring on one spot.oE gravel, pieced together what he knew and what he suspected. Alan had murdered some one; possibly "that man" against whom the butler chained the door in Regent's Terrace; possibly another; some one at least; a human soul, whom it was death to slay and whose blood lay spilled upon the floor. This was the reason of the whisky drinking in the passage, of his unwillingness to welcome John, of his strange behavior and bewildered words; this was why ho had started at and harped upon the name of murder; this was why he had stood and hearkened, or sat and .covered his 6yes in the black night. And now he was gone, now he had basely fled; and to all his perplexities and dangers John stood heir, "Let me think—let me think," lie said, aloud, impatiently, even pleadins- ly, as If to some merciless -interrupter. In the^ turmoil of his wits, a thousand hints and hopes and threats and ter,.rojrs: ; dinning continuously In his ears, he was like one plunged in the hubbub of a crowd. How was-lie;to remember— he who had not a thought to spare— that .he was himself :the author, as well as the theater, of so much confusion? But in hours'of triai the junto, of man's .'nature'is dissolved, and anarchy'suc- ceeds. It 'was plain he must stay no longer where he was* for here was a new Judicial Error in the very making. It was not so plain where he must go, for the old Judicial Error, vague as a cloud, appeared to fill the habitable world; whaU • ever it might be, it watched for him, full-grown, in Edinburgh; it must have had its birth in San Francisco; it stood guard, no doubt, like a dragon, at the .tea", tftt-WIMftjtt iMt « key" tfeefg m& fid Ifttfiflftg fttffti wlrttSft; 8ft» nimself: ettigid ttf ifeelul and fJefllmis t-lHiet to shut the 1 d&w > alwgethef nttd Set life portfflafcteatt but ttfteii tfce way* leave the dttof ajar, ed ihaf fthy thfevisH 6r holiday schoolboy Wight ih aWd stWnible oft Ihe grisly ft&» ci-et, to the last, as the least at§, Ills mind inclined; but he must flr'st iiisitfe himself that, he was uhob* served.

Half-way down a gate opened, and a trbop of Christinas children sallied forth in the most cheerful humor, followed more soberly by a smiling mother. "And this is Christmas-day!" thought John; and could have laughed aloud in tragic bitterness of heart. (fO BB CONTiNUBlU bf tlife HIB« ft* *» IB* Cfctt *M Poultry. 8t«8fc A SMALL CANINB THIEF.

It la somewhat singular that a man, by keeping his eyes open, can see unexpectedly many interesting incidents of city life every day but cannot see incidents that he expects to see, says an exchange. If he travels up and down and across town frequently he may expect to see fires, bu,t the chances are that he will travel for weeks without seeing a sign of flames, although the record in the newspapers Indicates that eight or ten fires a day are not unusual.

It was plain, too, that he must not flee as he. was, for he could not carry his portmanteau, and to flee and leave it, was to plunge deeper in the mire. He must go, leave the house unguarded, find a cab, and re- ter an absence? Had he courage for that? And just then he spied, attain about a hand's .breadth on his 'trouper-leg, and reached his finger down to -touch it.

Hardly an hour passes without something happen ing in Broadway and attracting a crowd in a few minutes, but hundreds on the utskirts are obliged to ask: "What's he matter?" Alinor incidents are teed tip sooner and .sometimes they are s interesting as the incidents one ox- iects to sec. 'That was exemplified at Broadway and Fulton street at noon ecently." "One of the peddlers there ad.a box of sponges-on the curbstone Being obliged to LP on guard agaiusl he approach of a policeman, he did nol observe a stub-tailed cleg until after il lad seized a sponge with its teeth and tarted to run across the street. Hia eatures- expressed amazement and an-, ger in quick succession as .he exclaimed, "You little cuss!" and ran after the log. -The dbg became bewildered slightly while trying to escape, and he lanced backward to see if he had been Hirsued. The peddler hesitated over caving his box'too far out of sight and, on the crossing, contented himself with whistling and snapping his flng- rs at-the dog in a'manner suggestive of his desires to recover the sponge. But the dog would not be influenced by a strange voice. Fifty persons watched ;he performance and, although a few ympathetic individuals tried to catch the dog, the majority laughed. Seeing an opening under a wagon, the dog limped through and scampered up the street. It is not unreasonable to be- ieve that those who saw the incident magined that,tho dog had been trained to steal, although its master did not re-' veal himself In the,immediate vicinity. the most eggs, kept the fowls healthy and in good condition, was to give a good feed of whole corn just before the fowls went on the roosts at night and give them all that they will eat up clean. This is one of tho best grains that can be given to maintain animal heat, and the whole grains keep the gte'zifrd'grinding for a^ongertline and the fowls will not get as hungry .hrough"the long nights. .During the day the scraps from the table with the Scraps from the kitchen, the potato parings, cabbage leaves and things of this kind can all be thrown into a vessel or pot and with sufficient water be kept cooking through the day. In tho morning.if the quantity Is not considered sufficient, corn meal or wheat bran and milk can be added to make up a good ration. Feed warm, not hot, 'giving them what they will eat up clean. Being soft It will be easily digested and will satisfy the. appetite quicker than whole grain. At noon give whole wheat, oats, barley, sorghum seed, Kaffir corn or buckwheat. Any ot these will do, but a change from one to the other will be found beneficial It is not best to depend upon any one entirely. Turnips, beets, carrots or cabbage can be given to take tho place of green food. Supply plenty of coarse sand for grinding'material. Supply a dust bath and supply pure, fresh water daily. Have the nests as warm as they can be made, and do not undertake to keep too many hens, so that when they are confined, as will be necessary during cold or stormy weather, they will npt be too qrow_ded.

Although prices fluctuate considerably, being regulated by the supply and prices of native English mutton, there is, as a rule, only a difference ot about three cents per pound between tbe best English and the best United States mutton. This is not because of English prejudice against' the American article, but because many of the sheep from the United States have been rapidly fattened on corn prior to shipment, show some" times SO per cent of their added weight to be tallow, while the flesh (English declare) is flavored by the corn feed.

It is, however, believed that if sheep are wet and crowded during a voyage scab may be generated by those conditions. The Glasgow market finds fault with American sheep, and also Canadian, by declaring them too big and fat. The Scotch want medium weights, and for them will pay high prices. Foreign markets demand some other breed of sheep for mjitton than the merino and the crosses, and those looking to profitable ventures "in this line should secure the best mutton breeds of sheep, which, when they are landed in as good condition as American cattle, will soon have as high a reputation and bring as remunerative figures. richness'of the milk; and''ft the ••fo<)d ; ; , were changed to one which' wouldi W cause an increase in the quantity^of the^. • milk, and at the same time keep up, the condition, it would be found that no) perceptible increase in the percentage ^ of butter fat had taken place. - We .' have used a variety of foods which bear out this statement.

Brandt, president of the Kansas State Dairy, association, in a report to the State Board of Agriculture, says: In May, 189G, I had the pleasure of observing the conditions, advantages and facilities, both favorable and unfavorable,, of the dairy industry of Iowa, Minnesota and Southern Dakota, through the courtesy and co-op'eratipn of some of the leading dairymen, who only are able to impart such knowledge. I learned with surprise the mutual interest that is being taken by the farmers and agriculturists in these states; the attention they have evidently given the improvement of their dairy cows; the manner of feeding; rearing of offspring; and in various ways continually seeking to raise the standard pf their milch' cows, -The .sue-; cess: ;that;Mias-: attended.» : s.uctu effprts I-: have noticed mpre prominently. ln ; Iowa and Minne'9ota, and it ;is astonishing; to discover that tbese =19 a wide d^f-., ference in the quantity of milk and butter furnished by the Iowa and Kansas cow. I am safe in saying that, gen? erally speaking, Iowa's'milch cow will. return between a third and half more. All of this has been brought about by close study of the animal herself; tbe adaptation of the different feeds, etc.; the giving of less attention on the part o£ the farmer to the price paid by the creameries for the raw material and more attention tp the development and care of the very machine that will raise bPth the price and the quantity. The cow will do more for the Kansas farmer than any animal he can have, if properly taken care' of, Thip can. 1 , ,b? proven by ft, cpmpaHsjpn pf the.Bectipns in th« state where dairying has and ,s not peen carried pn>extensively/ for several years, aljBUjhere the results are most noticeable.

Jersey, Guernsey and Ho Istein breeders, as well as the Ayrshire, Brown Swiss and Simmenthaler people, will have to look to their laurels, for. a -new dairy light appears in the East, this time in the form of the buffalo of India. The India buffalo, it will bo understood, is, the genuine article, and not 'the American bison to which we are accustomed in this country. According to the Sydney "Stock and Station Journal," these animals, while not rivaling other dairy breeds in milk production, greatly surpass them In butter- making capacity and in the total solids which the milk contains. The dairy experts of India declare that their buffalo is the best butter-producing animal in the world. By actual experiment eleven pounds of buffalo milk were required to produce a pound of butter, while seventeen pounds of cow milk were necessary for the production of the same amount, The buffalo in an India test was in milk 459 days, yielding 6,669 pounds 1 of milk. English brejl cows were in milk 471 days, yielding 5,024, An analysis of the milk cn^de at Poona, India, showed the Engh cow's milk to contain 3,7 per cent of butter fat, against 7.9 for 'the buffalo. The total solids were 12,8 per cent for the cow and 17,95 for the buffalo. If these analyses are a correct index to the normal production of the India buffalo, the breed will be an excellent one for dairy pressing, and some enterprising breeder in this country should import a few good ones and see whether the average cow In. this country, which produces 125 pounds a year, can,not be graded up, j*rot«ut tho XesU.

Kill by bleeding, in the mouth or opening the veins in'V neck; hang by the feet until properly,' bled; head .and feet should be left on and the intestines and crop should not be drawn.' For scalding poultry,the- water should be as near..-the. .boiling.! point as possible without actually boiling; pick the legs dry before scalding; hold by the head and legs and < Immerse and lift up and down threo times; if the head is immersed It turns the color of the comb and gives ,the , eyes a shrunken appearance, wjii^h. leads buyers to think the fowl. has been sick. The feathers and , pin-, feathers should be removed immediately, very cleanly and without i breaking the skin, then 'plump' by. dipping ten seconds in water nearly or quite boiling hot and then- tan^e- . dlately into pold water. Hang, in, a cool place until the animal heat Is entirely out; It should be entirely cold, but not frozen, before being packed, Dry-picked chickens and turkeys sell best, and we advise this way of dressing as they sell better to shippers; scalded to the local trade. To dry- , pick chickens and'turkeys properly,tjie work should be done while the bird is bleeding; do not wait and let''the bodies get cold. Dry-picking is more easily done while the bodies are warm.. Be careful and do not break and tear the skin.
