A Lesson of Brotherly Love.
On Sunday moming, while a certain deacon
was preparing tor church, a wandering waj farer
-or, in modern parlance, n tramp appeared at
his door, pleaded his hunger, and licggcd for
something to eat. Tho deacon looked holcmn
and froHiuugly, but reluctantly got a loaf of
bread, and Iegan to cut it ; nut, wiiiie doing so,
took occasion to admonish tho beggar concern
ing tho error of his ways. After reminding him
that it was the holy KaMiath day which ho was
dseccratiiig, he asked him if lie Vnew how to
pray. "No," w as the reply. "Then," said the
deacon, "I'll teach joil," and bo commenced to
repeat the Lord's prajcr.
llutjustai ho uttered tho first word, "Our

Jew banker, in London. waj attachnl to a young
Chmtian with whom hia father opiwwcd bin

could not be induced to pue his consent, ho
concludod to uiarr' without it. The father then
threatened to withhold ctcry shilling from him.
wbcrcujKm the m n-pliod that; if the father did
not intend to piro him anything, ho would In
come a Christian, and according to law, ho
would bo entitled to half of his father's fortune.
The father, much alarmed, llew to a Iawjcr( to
inqnire w hcther snch a law was really in exist

over ten guineas, ho would gie him a jdan by

ten guineas were ijuickly troducctl. "Now,"
Kaid the lawyer, quietly jocLcting the money,
"all that remains for j on to do. :i to becomo a
Christian, also, and tho law will not compel ou
to leave him a cent of jour money." The Jew
hurriedly seized his hat, and left the lawyer,
without any further remark.
At a coin cntioit of clergymen, not long since,
it was vronoscd by ono of tho members, after

It is an old btory about the countryman who
invited two girls into an ice-cream saloon and
called for a small glass and throe spoons, though
of course everybody takes it for a newspaper
yarn ; but it can bo discounted by an actual oc

"Bvgosh!" ho exclaimed, fie cents a glass!

Men of intelligence, who havo pursued agri
culture on the far wewtern plains, w hero tho v
erago rainfall irt not inorH than twenty inches,
have for jears predicted that the dry climate
and w arm lands of the Arid Belt 1-cing eminently
Miitcd for breeding chinch bugs, they would ult
imately increase to such an extent that profitable

cMy to 1k commended they hato repeatedly
wanted the public, in attempting to follow agri

predictions soeui to bo on the point of fulfilment.
The dread expressed by farmers tilling lands
coutingnniis to tho Arid Belt atxmt chinch bugp,
fills the fur Wefcteni presH. It is asserted that
thousand of acres of fall-aown wheat havo .teen
injured, and other 'thousands of acres are threat
ened with M'rious injury. The Western I.areat
is later than intual, on account of the backward
spring, and this accounts for tho greater damage
wrought by tho chinch bugs. It is not general
ly known, but it is a truth, that west of the
ninety-eighth meridian almost all tho corn
planted on uplands, ami much of that on th
valley lands, was killed by the chiuch bugs la it
jear. Publicly the loss of the corn wasas-sigucd
to tho drought but all men liung there knew
that tho chinch bugs were the active destructive
agents. Many w clMiiformcd meu rlaim that tlu

The chinch bugs are new comers in the Arid
Belt, and firwliiiL' the conditions suited to their
life, they will probbably solve the quotioii of
profitable agriculture wcat of tin' 100th meridian
iu the negative. A land wiiere hiitmuciecu incit
es of rain of rain falls iu a year, cannot by any
known agency froe itself of these insects. Illi
nois, inhabited bv a wealth v and intelligent ag
ricultural community, and having au minimal
ram Z.U1 ot about tiurty-MX mcues, nas sunereti
aovere loss of crops, in years past, from chinch
bugs. Twodry years in succcdsiou fill the far
mer of that .State with alarm. In tho Arid Belt,
where almost every year is dry, the probability
is that tho insects will render tlio production of
all crops unprofitable. The evident anxiety of
the land-grant railroad companies, to impreas on
the public that rice-corn and sorghum plautsare
drought and chinch bugproof, is siisjiicioua. lCicc
corn belongs to tho same family of plauttf as sor
ghnm. Tho grain is greatly inferior to com aa
food for man or lieat,t. That either of these
dauts is proof sgaiu&t tho attacks of the chiut h
mgs isjettobo proved. That tho hugs will
breed iu the ground occupied by sorghum is not
doubted by any man jKisscssing the least know I
odgo of the habits of these insects. If they breed
in the fields, they will bo forced to sulmibtoii tho
plants grow ing there. The sorghum fields, from
early Juno tilllate fall, will probably bo alive
with this deatructivo aud fonl-smclhng insect.
In view of this probability, it would 1 advisa
ble fur parties intending to engage iu the manu
facture of Migar and syrup out of sorghuui to
carefully which tho effect tho compressing of
millions of chinch bugs lietween iron rollers will
have on theihnorof their prod act. Prom per
sonal knowledgej gained by chewing Korghum
cane on a dark night, I can testify that the in
sects' taste precisely as bed-bugs smell.
As jet no method of ridding the Western fann
ing lands of these bngs has 1eeii discovered, and,
as in tho case of the Bocky Mountain locusts, all
plans recommended have been childishly aboard.
Thecaixful burning of stubble, weeds, and
con; stalks in the spring has no apparent effect
ou their numbers. The full-grown Hies appear
on the first warm dajs in opriiig. They walk
actively over the ground. They mate and lav
eggs. In early Juno the first brood, small, active
reddish insects, can be found on w heat atalks lo
low the lower joint, and concealed by the outer
leaves. They in fro t the joimg corn plants, con
gregating abont the crown of the roots. They
also like to lie among band burs and other cuano
grasses. Thcjonug insects soon arrive at ma
turity, and breed. They feed, old ami vounc.ou
growing plants, sucking the substance that na
ture intended to xonu cars out oi ii.caia.ks. oon
tlio lower limbs of the nlant attacked die. This
dvingof the luugsof tho plant rises rapidly, and
leaf after leaf withers and falls; finally the stalk
becomes dry, and, if the plant attackedle wheat
or oats, the straw is apt to crinklf, and the first
heavy wind or rain storm levels it with tho
Generally when tho insects are plentiful, the
tables of harvesting machines and the floors of
header boxes, used to catch tho btraw as it falls
from the elevator of heading machines, are cov

dest until lato September tho liinects Mcadily

create in number. In the same held, insects iu
cv cry stage of de elopment may bo found. Corn
idalkti becomo dry, and, with tho fields actually
black with the iuectaf the damage is attributed
to the drought.
Tho chinch bngs closely follow the lino of set
tlement west want. Iu tho rapid Hcttlementof
wmieof the Wcateni States, the settler pnyhed
w estwnrd faster than tho chinch bngs could fol
low. Men hav e sold farms in the lower Missouri
Valley, where the chiuch bugs had straggled for
years, killed and diseased by an annual rain fall
of thirty-six inches, and going West, have open
ed fanns close to the Arid Belt, and for j cars
did not hoc a chinch bug. Gradually the insects
followed after, overtook them, and pressed on
for the westernmost fields. They do hot injure
the prairie grasses. They destroy the cultivated
crons. and oCTicnlturists intending to enter tho

The famous spring-wheat region ot tlieNorth
west will probably be dev astated by chinch bugs
in tho near future, Tho lateness of the Jvorta
weatern harvest, the exclusive sowing of spring
wheat, and the dryness of the climate, all faror
the inference that the productiveness of that re
wi.iTi will Iia rreatlv reduced in the future. Tho
fand will not beeibansted, but the number, of
destructive gram-devouring mccl will tie great
ly increased. As yet, the fields of Northern Min
nesota and Dakota are comiiarath ely free from
chiuch bugs. In the dry basin Iiug between
the Cascade Mountains and tho upper Missouri
Kiver, the introduction of these insects will be
quickly followed by nnremunerative agriculture.
The known laws governing the production and
migration of chinch bugs, plainly indicate what
the futnre has in store for that arid land.

the work. They had at various times previous

and experienced men of their stated, but, al
though zeal for religion had persuaded the ex

them by taxes had always inclined the balance
the other way. Now, however, aacrificiug every
temporal interest to the glory of religion, and to
the preservation of pnrity of blood among the
nobilitv of Spain, they resolved to expel them
alL" As to the pitK-eas of expulsion, "one can
not imagine what these miserable, blinded crea

from Spain." Thoc especially who crosMed to
Africa were cruelly ill-treated by the Moors,
"an excelleut remedy," continues Ferreraa, 'de
vised by God to open the eyes of a vast multi
tude of these poor blind ones, who were thus led
by suffering to nee the errors of the falso religion
they profcosed, so that many of them returned
to Spain to ask for the holy water of baptism."
Such were the tender mercies of the Spaniah

as the reward of unremitting labor. I tried our
editor" plan of changing daisies into clover by
meaus of sprinkling of pbospbo-guano. Oa a
fine day you take a boxful of phospho-guano, or
Peruvian guano, and when you find a dock or
dandelion or thistle, you powder the guano all
ov er him by means of a trowel, and make him a
nice brown color all over. There follows iniimv
diatejy a brown patch, and If the lawn is dotted
with these brown patches its appearance is de
cidedly objectionable for a month, or soj therefore
if yon intend to leave home for a tour, it is very
Cropertokill the lawn weeds by this process

an effectual killerof weeds, cspeciaUy of daUiea,
but it does not promote a good aftergrowth, as
guano does, the result, I suppose, of its being
destitute of phosphatic fertilizers. Daisy-rskcs
are ridiculous, aud for tho complete eradication
of daisies there can be no plan, I think, so effec
tual as guano sprinkling. But for three years I
have constantly practiced a method which I will
vent are to consider my own. I go out every
morning from tho time pleasant weather Is over.
I have in one hand a strong clasp knife and in
the other a box of salt. For this purpose I buy
agricultural salt. When I find a thistle or dock
or other rank weed, I carefully cut it ont, push
ing my kuife down so as to cut below the collar.
Into the hole I dron a pinch of salt, which kills
the root and makes an end to the business. I
must own that sometimes this plan results in
brown patches, but they are smaller, at all
events, than thoao caused by the guano system
without the knife; aud if the work is done with
care, the beauty of the turf is not materially
lessened. Lei any one 10110 w up vuia 13 sicm mm

Ammonia Against Snake-Bites.
Several caacs of snake-bite, in which the value
of Prof. Halford's remedy, subcutaneous injec
tion of ammonia, has iievu ucmoaairaicu, nave,
sa s tho Melbonrno Argm, lately occurred in tho
Colmiy. At Seymour, on tho 14th of December,
a3oungmau,2ii3earsofage, named Dwycr, was
bitten by a snake between the thumb aud first
finger of the right band. Tho wound was receiv
el at 9 o'clock, and no treatment was applied
until ll;3l, wlieu the patient was pun erics aud
almost insensible. Ammonia w as injected into
his right arm, when ho revived at once. He
suffered a relapse, but tho ammonia was again
succcAbfull3' applied, and ho ultimately recovered.
At llungnrec a 3 ouug girl was bitten l3 a suake,
and gradually sank iutoastatoof btupor. Two
hours and a half after she was bitten ammonia
w as injected. Belief was immediately obtained,
aud tho girl rapidly recov creel. A thinl case
happened on the Acheron, 11 miles from Alexan
dria, whcrcalittlegirlayearsofage, the daugh
ter of a farmer named Doak, was bitten by a
suako just aliovo the ankle of the left foot.
Symptoms of complete coma were setting in
when tho ammonia injection wo used with
magical effect. Tho child sat upright amUie
caineipiite liv clj. A relapse occurring, a second
injection w as made w ith as great effe t as before,
aud the child from that time continued to im
prove until her recovery. Another case is men
tioned of a nativ e w oman 011 the Wirrega Stat ion,
South Australia, who was bitten by asnaknou
the ankle. She became nucouaeious, and at the
aiirfoco of the body was turning cold, when
ammonia was injected. The woman at once
revived and recovered.
