THE NATIONAL TEIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. C, APEIL 15, 1882.
SONG OF THE DAWN.
The beautiful day is breaking,
The fin4 faint ray of light,
Parts the shadow of the night
And a thousand birds nrc -waking.
I hear the hairHrd's slender trill,
So fair and perfect it doth fill
The whole bwcot silenee with its thrill.
A rosy flush creeps p the sky,
The birds bcm their symphony.
I hear the clear, triumphant voice
Of the robin, bidding the world rejoice,
The vircos catch the theme of the song,
And the Baltimore oriole bears it along.
"While from sparrow and thrush and wood pewee,
And, deep in the pine trees, the ehioadce,
There's an undercurrent of harmony.
The linnet sings like a mngic flute,
The lark and bluebird touch the lute,
The starling pipes to the shining morn '
"With tho vibrant note of the joyous horn,
The splendid jay
Is the trumpeter gay,
The kingfisher, sounding his rattle, ho
May the player upon the cymbals be,
Tho cock, saluting the suir's first ray,
Is the bugler sounding a roveilic,
"Caw! Caw!" cries the crow, and his grating
Completes the chor like the deep trombone,
But, above them all, the robin sings;;
His song is the very soul of day,
And a-U black shadows troop away
"While, pure and fresh hi? music rings :
" Lijjht is here! ,
Never fear .'

desirous thatthepublisherof ThejKAtional

Hedges, (continued.) The only form in
which a hedjje can be kept, to be of service
as a fence, is that of a pyramid. "When it
has attained a height of five feet, it should
beat least three feet Avide at the base or
surface of the ground. All pruning must bo
directed with a view to securing this form.
When tho plants are first set out, they should
be pruned back to within three inches of the
ground, and allowed to grow undisturbed
during the first season, their growth in the
meantime being encouraged by judicious
cultivation. At the termination of the
yearly growth, the plants should be again
pruned down to within four inches of tho
first pruning, and the side shoots below this
point also be removed to within an inch of
the main stem. This severe pruning of tho
branches will give to tho roots a vigorous
impulse; the buds will burst early in tho
spring, and strong shoots will be the result.
During this second year's growth the hedge
may be partially shaped by repressing the
growth of the strongest perpendicular shoots
and encouraging those of horizontal ten
dency. Practically this is accomplished by
guiug over the plants, about the end of June,
and cutting all upright shoots back to a point
about eight inches above the previous winter
pruning, taking care not to disturb a shoot
or leaf on the side branches below that point.
In thus cutting back the upright shoots tho
side growth will be increased, and a breadth
of base secured, which, at this stage of growth,
is the most important point of all. In the
following winter the hedge, if it has pro
gressed at all favorably, may bo pruned
down to fourteen inches in height from the
ground surface, with the horizontal branches
extending from nine to twelve inches on
each side. The principles of pruning are
that growth is repressed by summer trim
ming, and encouraged, or rather, strength
ened by pruning after the leaves have fallen.
By keeping these facts in mind, and prac
tising accordingly, the shaping of a hedge
is only a work of time. The lower branches
can always be retained as healthy, and pro
duce as much density of-foliage as the up
right portion of the plants, if the pyramidal
lorm is strictly maintained ; but if, at any
time, the upright growth predominates the
lower lisibs will proportionately lose vigor.
The upright shoots should, therefore, he
pruned during summer, in order to weaken
the growth at that point, and to strengthen
and keep the base of the hedge vigorous and
close or thick. The principal pruning of the
Jower branches should be performed during
This is-the only way in which a hedge can
be made that will be effective as a fence; and
the neglect of the principles here suggested
is generally the origin of the conflicting opin
ions with regard to the value and efficiency
of hedges as farm fences. They may receive
come attention for a year or two; but when
it becomes thoroughly understood that they
cannot be presarved unless trimmed during
sammer,when attention and labor is largely
absorbed in attending to ordinary crops,
farmeia aro not always disposed to give
hedges the attention necessary to keep them
in good condition, and therefore they fail to
hoof service. It should, however, be remem
bered that as the hedge becomes perfect tho
yearly labor to keep it in order gradually
becomes less, and at no time does it require
so much labor as that required to keep a
common wooden fence in good repair
stance, such as hay. The
that the moisture is taken out of the egg,
the lining membrane becomes leathery, and
the young chick is unable to force his way
through it Exchange.
Ensilage. Prof. Cook, of New Jersey,
says that ensilage contains cighty-lwo and
one-half pounds of water and seventeen and
one-half pounds of dry substances in 100,
and a ton of it skillfully fed will make twenty
pounds live weight of beef, which, at five
and one-half cents, would be 1.10. The
manure might bring it up to $1.50 per ton
In view of the above showing, the claim
that ensilage is a nutritious feeding stuff is
simply preposterous. The c&nversion of a
small proportion of the carbonic hydrates
into alcohol may increase or diminish its
feeding value, but not to any appreciable
extent; whereas the acetous and butyric fer
mentations will certainly impair it. In
practice, neither of these changes probably
amount to more than enough to give it a
smell, and their practical effect is about zero.
As an appetizing vehicle for more condensed
food, ensilage doubtless has a certain practi
cal value, and it may also have a not incon
siderablevalue in preventing disease of sheep
and calves in hard winters from the long use
of dry food. To have some of it to open and
feed under such circumstances is doubtless
The estimated cost of its production per
ton, as usually published, puts the whole
cost below what it will cost to load it on and
pitch it from a wagon on to the platform of
the cutter. Scarcely ever is anything charged
in the estimate for the use of tho land, in
terest and taxes on which arc bodily thrown
into the credit of the ensilage. Nor is any
comparison instituted .between the cost and
value of ensilage and the cost and value of
other crops which the land might produce.
In view of all these things, it remains an
open question whether ensilage can be fed
to ordinary livestock at a profit, or at a loss
necessarily. It is better to go slow about
"What Makes Corn Pop. Chemists who
have examined Indian corn, find that it con
tains all the way from G to 31 parts in 100,
by weight, of fat. By proper means this fat
can be separated from the grain, and it is
then a thick, pale oil. When oils aro heated
sufficiently in closed vessels, so that tho air
cannot get to them, they aro turned into gas,
which occupies many times the bulk the oil
did. When pop-corn is gradually heated,
and made so hot that the oil inside of the
kernels turns to gas, this gas cannot escape
through the hull of the kernels, but when
the interior pressure gets strong enough it
bursts the grain, and the explosion is so
violent that it shatters it in the most curious
manner. The' starch in the grain becomes
cooked, and takes up a great doal moro space
than it did before.
At one of the leading Protestaut churches
in Baltimore, Sunday morning last the pas
tor, after an able sermon, made a strong ap
peal for a liberal subscription with which to
liquidate a church debt which bad been an
noying his repose, as he is a minister who
believes in "paying as yon go." The first
collection did not loot up as satisfactorily as
was desired, and a second call was made, but
still the desired amount was not forthcom
ing, and as a last expedient the pastor had
a basket, provided with cards and pencils,
passed from pew to pew by an euergetic
"son and brother," with the understanding
that any one willing could affix name and
amount of subscription, to be called for at
an early day. A card was handed, among
others, to a stranger of philanthropic appear
ance, who wrote something on it, placed it
in the basket, and then quietly left the
house of worship. Imagine the pastor's sur
prise, in counting up his gains from the
cards, to read on one of them, written in a
legible hand, the words: " The pastor of this
church is a crank." He informed the mem
bership that he had been the pastor of tho
church for many years, and that this was
the first time he had been written down a
crank," and, of course, this would not
have been the case this time had they prop
erly discharged their duty at the first call.
It is not expected the stranger will occupy
a seat in that church for several Sundays to
come. A doctor of divinity, who is pastor of
a Methodist congregation in tho regions
about Madison Square, in this city, on Sun
day read from his pulpit a printed official
circular of a railway company announcing a
change in passenger agents, the paper having
leen handed him in mistake for one more
religious in its character. A male member
of the congregation, who is a railroad man,
and is also connected with the Northern
Central Railway branch of the Young Men's
Christian Association, desired to have the
pnstor read a circular announcing a special
religious service to he held by the branch.
As the pastor walked into his church the
railroad man handed him what was sup
posed to be the religious notice, failing to
remember that he had the official railway
notice of change in tho same pocket. Tho
pastor, with confidence in his lay member,
accepted the notice on faith, and did not
read it until he announced it with the pther
usual notices to the congregation. Tho rail
road man was overwhelmed with consterna
tion when he heard his pastor impressively
read from the pulpit the announcement that
" D. "W. Janowitz, late southeastern passen
ger agent of the Pennsylvania Railroad, at
"Washington, has been aj pointed eastern pas
senger and freight agent of the Missouri
Pacific and St. Louis and Iron Mountain
Railroad, with headquarters at New York,"
&c. The pastor read it throngh, even to tho
minuto details, expecting, as ho afterwards
said, to find some religious reference at the
bottom. He, however, reached the name of
the managing railroad official signed to tho
circular without discovering anything per
taining to devotional affairs, and he then
quickly turned over to another notice, which
he know was orthodox. Tho railroad man
meanwhile had fled to the basement, posi
tively overcome by the incident which his
unfortunate mistako had occasioned. The
Northern Central officials claim to have dis
covered another avenue for railroad adver
tising. Baltimore Sun.

Killing the Potato Beetle. It is
stated that far water; sprinkled over potato
plants will destroy the beetlo as effectually
as an application of Paris green. A gallon
of gas tar is placed into a barrel of water;
the whole is well stirred up, and then tie
tar is allowed to settle, and the water is ap
plied to the plants. This water is offensive
to most insects, and may be freely used with
out injury to plants, or man.
Feeding Cattle Prof. Brown, of On
tario, has been experimenting to ascertain
the comparative value of prepared and un
prepared hay and roots in the fattening of
cattle. Tho i4 preparation " of the food con
sisted in the pulping of the turnips and the
cutting of the hay into inch lengths. Four
cattle were put up in each lot. The four fed
en unprepared food whole turnips and nn
ent hay gained every day during the 105
days of the experiment 1.70 pounds per head.
The four cattle fed on pulped turnips and
cut hay gained 2.10 pounds per day.
To be continued.
THE Arnotta PLANT.-ArnottaiB fur
nished by the Bixa Orcllana, a South Ameri
can tree, which grows from twenty to thirty
feet-in height. This tree bears bunches of
pink-colored flowers, which are followed by
oblong bristled pods, resembling those of tho
chestnut, and of a reddish-brown color. On
bursting open, the interior of the pod is seen
to contain a crimson colored waxy puip -in
which the seeds are imbedded. This puiD
forms the substance called atnotta, which ia
prepared by maceration in hot water until
the seeds are separated. The liquid pulp fe
then strained, and evaporated by boiling
until it attains the consistency of putty ln
this state it is worked into rolls, wrapped
in leaves, and is then known as roll or flag
arnotta; but when more thoroughly dried it
is made into cakes, and termed cake arnotta.
Good arnotta is of a fiery red color, and dis
solves entirely in water.
Roll arnotta is principally brought from
Srasil, Cake arnotta is furnished by several
Summer Feed. The enlightened dairy
man of to-day finds plenty of nutritious
grasses essential to the success of the dairy
business. His pasture is free from weeds
briers, and thistles, whose places'are supplied.
dj timothy, June grass, orchard grass, and
eSover; and when dry weather makes grass
i&orfc in the pasturrs, he has oats, grass, or
cornstalks to cut and feed, aud he often adds
a little meal and dry hay when the cows aro
put in the stalls for milking. Indeed, it is
thought by some of onr most successful
dairymen that a little dry hay is almost
indispensable when cows arc gorged with
Hucculent food. Cows eat it with great relish
and it absorbes some of tho moisture which
must fitberwisc pass off through the excre
tory organs. Not a few believe a little meal
never amiss, as it helps to keep up tho rich
ness of the milk and the strength of the
animals. Salt should always be in reach, so
the cows can lick it at will. For cuttiiur and
feeding early, to eke out short pastures, no
grass is considered better thau orchard. It
thrives en a variety of soils, growing any
where that Indian corn will, and it gets a
good growth early, and is ready for use
when wanted. If cut early, before even
headed, oertainly before it blossoms, and
properly cured by piling it in cocks aud
avoiding exposure to the hot rays of the sun
as much as possible, it ia none the less valu
able for extra feed or soiling. The same
ay be Baid of cornstalks, which should not
ha cut before they are in blossom, and which
J&ould be grown in drills, so as to give access
to the roots and stalks in tho development
of the nutritious elements. No portion of a
cornstalk that is white because excluded,
from air and sunshine is fit to eat. N. Y.

Salt 'Lake City, Dec. 15, 1S31.
Dear Fitinxb: Our friendship numbers
much over thirty years; in the first few I
changed my religion, doming out of tho High
Church of England into one despised and re
jected by tho world, and such a step was a
great sorrow to you, yet, with a tenacity that
is remarkable in such a case, you over remained
true to our friendship, and you over gavo mo
credit for my truthfulness and honesty. In
our long and unceasing correspondence my re
ligion has occasionally drifted into its pages,
though you know I never forced it upon you ;
but you have always entreated me never to
speak of plural marriage, but, singular to say,
in your last letter, you ask me to say whatever
my spirit dictates me on the subject ; tho reason
you givo for this request is that my happiness
is a paramount consideration with you, and,
therefore, you desire to ask if this tenet of our
religion has not been a barrier to tin's desider
atum ? I feel glad that you havo at last opened
this "iron door," tho lock of which I should
never havo attempted to "pick," considering
that it was a sacred tenet of our faith that
neither you nor the world you Iivo in had
anything to do with, and, liko" tho problems of
mathematics, it would bo impossible for you to
understand, or appreciate, until you had passed
through tho rudimcntal elements ; but, agree
ably to your request, I will now make a few
remarks and will make them as brief as possi
ble. You aro aware that our Church, i. e., tho
Church of Jesus Christ, was founded by reve
lation given to a Prophet raised up and en
dowed to open tho last dispensation on earth
Joseph Smith being that Prophet. Amone
many revelations was tho one especially given
on plural marriage; it was given as an imper
ative command from tho Divine Founder; the
pcoplooftho earth had become corrupt, with
but few exceptions ; this you can see with." your
own eyes and understand with your own
heart; and now tho Lord 3aid: "1 will raise up
a righteous generation; gather out my pco
plo from among tho nations; and yo Elders of
Israel, my servants, tako unto yoursolves a
plurality of wives, women that arc puro ; I will
give portions of tho celestial law of marriage
for your guidance, whereby you shall under
stand how to govern yoursolf for prostitution
and adultery shall not bo among my people ! "
This plural marriage is not to gratify an im
pure appetite, but entirely the leverso; it is
the purest principlo on earth ; if rightly under
stood and so carried out it will form a chain that
will regenerate and indissolubly bind together
the whole human family. You have always
spoken of myself and family with the deepest
admiration and respect, therefore I have confi
dence in presenting ourselves to you as recipi
ents for this holy order. My daughters entered
into it in all their youth and beauty, and with
the full sanction of their parents, and lii...,,
been worthy members of tho same. Will not tho
few words I havo spoken bo a guarantee to you
that the principlo is puro and holy! At any
rate let mo entreat you to leave it where you
find it, and be happy about mo and my family.
That is all that need be said to one who novor
intends to be a Latter-day Saint plural mar
riage cannot b understood by tho carnal mind
for such look at it with sectarian eyes aud are
at onco blinded. For nysolf, I shall livo and
die in tho Church of Jesus Christ, and as far as
I cau carry out its principles, God being my
helper. Hannah T. King.
