T the H. H. xsb C. C Now that the crazy
qaUlhas had its day, I would like to-introduce to
ike gitks of the C. C the Crazy-Brick (not in a
sum's bat, of course), with direciioiis how to make
Ibis a thing of beauty and joy forever. Procure a
common brick, large or small, as you may desire;
ibon one or two puunds of putty, which you will
bofton hy the stove. When the putty is soil, work
into itwitti your hands, burst umber or Vermillion,
till it Koquirea the tint you desire. Kow coat over
your brick ou all four sides, about half an inch
deep, witb the soft pally, and while soft, sink your
"etirni-btriog buttons" into it, iu all the fantastic
or arttetie deatgns you may fancy. If tue shanks
of tlte buttons are long, bend them down, to all
WiH be oh h level and only the faces of the bullous
will tliow. Uo one bide at a time; put a fiat board
over the surface to see that all are level. You can
also sink shells hi the same way, but buttons are
more durable. When the putty, with the imbed
ded buttons, is do, your brick is done, and will
look naudsome, according to the neatness of your
work or the beauty of your buttons. These bricks
are useful and ornamental as guaids for open doors
in tee turner; a hatf-bnek, thus treated, makes a
niee taper-weight. Try this, gills, aud let me
know mw you bueoeed. and 1 will give you more
thrceuoas ia faitey work, as I prize the C. C. De
partment most highly, with its dear girls and boys.

1. Each memberof Hie C. C. may join in the debate,
and will be allowed to present one subject for dis-
2. Eaeh subject will be presented three weeks be

8. The firrtweek the affirmative will open; the
second week the negative will reply; the third
week the affirmative may answer the arguments of
the negative, but will not be allowed to present
any new arguments.
4. As it would be jiinly impossible to publish
all that might be written on either side, the best
ivritor on the affirmative will stand as the expo
nent for his side, and the best writer on the nega
tive for his.
5. A committee of three, consisting of the Editor,

Written by Harry D. SIcCalley, aged 13, who
died Sept. 23, at his home, near Urbana, Iowa.
" Oh, dear !" exclaimed pretty Leoline Lamont ;
"I do wonder if I will always have to live on a
farm. I am getting sick of such a life. I never
did like to cook, wash, churn, nnd milk, hs
some girls delight to do. Yes, I am tired, tired,
tired, of living on a.farm. I would like to live in
the city, go to balls and theaters, wear fine clothes,
aud, in fact, be somebody. Oh, dear I Why can t
all be rich J"
" Because, if they were, where would be our
little country maidens to make us golden builer
"Why. afr. Forrester! How came you here?
And to think you heard mc soliloquizing! Rut,
then, you needn't laugh at me, foryou really don't
know how bad I want to be somebody."
"How bad you want to be somebody? Why,
Leoline! I always thought you were somebody. '
"Oh, yes, 1 know; but I mean somebody well,
somebodv besides a farmer's daughter.''
"Dear Leoline," said Mr. Forrester, placing his
hand on hor shoulder and gazing intently in her
hazel eyes. "So you are tired of being a farmer's
daughter? Well, how would you like to be a inin
" There, voh are making fun of mc again."
" Making fun of you ? Did you ever hear of me
making fun of you or anybody else? No, Leo
line; I was never more earnest in my life. I know
I cannot give you the riches for which you crave,
but I can give you a comfortable home aud all the
love of an honest heart."
" Mr. Forrester, you know not what you ask. I
am not worthy of you; indeed, I am not. lam
altogether too wicked to be a minister's wife."
" You are a great deal better than you give your
self credit for ; and as to your not being worthy of
nie, allow me to satisfy myself on that point. All
that I care for is your love. Give mo that, nnd I
promise you shall never have cause to regret."
" Mr. Forrester, I am very sorry you have nsked
me this question, for I cannot comply with your
request. No, I cannot marry yon. You are very,
very good, aud I like you ever so much, but I can
not give you the love which you ask and deserve.
Even though 1 did love you, 1 am afraid I could
never be content wkh tho home you could give
"Then good-by, Leoline (offering his hand), I
will not insist on you to Teconsider; though you
arc the same to me as ever, nnd nlways will be.
Nothing will ever change my love for you. But if
you are ever in need of a friend, don't forget to
send for me. I will go away to-morrow, for I can
not remain here now. There is an old minister in
Rosedale who would be glad to take my place in
the church for a year or two. I will see him this
afternoon and make arrangements. Farewell,
Leoline. I hope you will be happy." And press
ing her hand to his lips, he departed. Leoline
gazed after him as one in a dream; then, turning,
she fled to the house, and gaining the seclusion of
her own room, she threw herself on her bed and
cried herself to sleep.
To he continued.!
WHAT DOTH THE NEW YEAR BEING?
Thou comest with joy and singing,
With a step as light as the air.
But wliat to our hearts art thou bringing,
Oh young year laughing and fair?
Is it love and fortune and glory,
A pathway strewn with flowers;
Or is it a tragical story,
That may finish this life of ours?
The birth of the new year hailing
With the dance, the feast and song,
Will the music turn to wailing
Ere the brigbt new year is gone?

IN MEMOEY OF OUK C C. LOVED ONES.
Fading and sweet were our earthly flowers,
Blooming here for a few short hours;
Transient as dew in the melting beam
Of Summer sunshine's dazzling gieam.
Over across the silent sea
Angels were waiting to carry thee
Safe to the gentle Shepherd's fold,
Whore all that's lovely ne'er grows old.
Sadly we laid their forms to rest,
With the daisies pressed above their breast;
While with throbbing heart, 'mid falling tears,
The last sad riles each loved one hears.
And though our dear ones pass away,
And naught be left but lifeless clay,
Yet still iheir spirits hover near
To bless the hearts that loved them here.
M. J. Galpln, Sau Antouio, Tex.
OUE BOOK CHICLE.
"Some books are to be tasted, others to be swal
lowed, nnd some few to be chewed aud digested."
Asenliment which I lately came across pleases
me greatly, and will be found alike applicable to
the student and the casual reader: "The mere
reading of novels, tracts nnd biography may be
come, by the manner in which it is perused, a
liberal education. It is not so much matter how
little we read as it is that we have a fixed intention
to learn and press it whenever wo can." M. L.
Best, Stoneham, Mass.
Longfellow, Whittier, Holland, Poe and others
have written fine poems; but why omit Bryant,
whose " Thanatopsls " ia the grandest poem in
American literature? Lillic M. Haines, Chester
S. Hope Gurley had a fine list of novelists and
poets, but why did lie omit Victor Hugo? Have
any of the C. C. read "Lorna Doone," by Black
more; if so, what do they think of it? Also, "Tho
Wandering Jew," by Eugene Sue. Will Meda
name the novel which disgusted her po, the only
one she ever read? SallieStanberry, Elmore, 0.
Education of one's self does not depend on the
number or kind of books we rend, but ujion the
practical application of the foundation principles
of reading aud writing the English language, arith
metic and geograjdiy. Not until we have master
ed these can we indulge iu ologies, osophies nnd
literary diversions to any advantage to ourselves
or others. J. E. Waffle, Sharon Center, O.

1 think it would be a great blessing to "Young

Some Practical Suggestions for Our
DISPUTED OVNKBSHIP OF TEEES.
A correspondent of tho New York Tribune
thus oxplaitis the law governing disputed own
ership of trees along lino fences: "Every
season during fruit timo there is a disputo and
irritation in regard to the ownership of fruit
where trees stand so near a line fence that some
of tho brauclies hang over a noighbors laud.
It seems to bo a settled point of law that all
tho fruit belongs to tlte owner of tho tree, but
ho must not enter upon his neighbor's laud to
gatherit. Ho niayreach through the fence and
get it, or by thenid'of a rake or other implement
draw it to him, or, what is better, climb tho tree
and pick it. Tho adjacent owner has his rem
edy by cutting off alL the branches of the tree
up to tbe lino, if bo chooses. A caso somewhat
similar to this is cuttiug forest tree3 near a line
fence. The owner must observe caution to fell
them upon his own land, if possible, but if they
fall on bis neighbor's land tbe latter has no
right of action, and the former cannot follow
his trees to recover them. I saw a caso in
point, A cut a large tree standing near B's lino
on a steep hillside, and below was a field of
wheat nearly ripe. The tree struck the fence
aud rolled broadside down the bill, leveling a
swath of grain as wide as tho tree was long.
B brought suit for damages. A proved " due
.caution," and the court held no cause for ac
tion. IIo lost bis tree, but B did not dare to
utilize it. A might have entered and takou
possession of tho tree, but that would bavo
made him liable for consequent damages.
Qniuces are so easily raised, and usually aro
in such good demand, that it seems singular
that they are so seldom found on farms, boyoud,
a few trees in a garden, and these quite often
neglected, so far a3 cultivation is concerned.
The best way to start a small quince orchard is
to buy the young trees from a nurseryman,
rather than to wait until one can grow them
for himself from seeds or cuttings, which will
take two or three years longer. They waut
rich soil, and should be set 10 to 12 feet apart.
Naturally they will grow in a bushy form, and
it is best to let them do so, as tho fruit is more
easily gathered and there will bo more of it
than if they wore trimmed up to resemble an
apple tree. Still they should be kept thinned
out enough to allow a good circulation of air
through tho branches and bo kept in good
shape. I think the apple or orauge-shaped
quiuco tho best, but tho pear-shaped is also
good. Oue objection to raising thorn in large
quau titics at a distance frpm a good market is
that they aro easily bruisell, and consequently
do not bear shipping well, aud aro not long
keepers, but the market never seems over
stocked with them, so that a more extensive
cultivation of them would no doubt bo gener
ally profitable. Exchange.
CUTTING AND PLANTING POTATOES.
Tho Vermont State Agricultural Experiment
Station during last season conducted some ex
periments in which were tried 14 methods of J
cutting and planting potatoes in rows ou icec"
long aud three feet apart, the seed being plant
ed uniformly two feet apart. Our space for
bids giving the different modes of seeding and
planting, and we only make mention of tho
methods that produced tho best results, and
these were to use large whole tubors; medium
tubers with the sprouts oil', and medium tubers
planted three inches deep, and when four
inches high thoroughly mulched.
Wo are reminded by tho movement of seed
catalogs that wo are at a season of tho year
when preparation should be made for tho gar
den, by making such selection of seeds as are
desirable. It is always safe to make provisiou
in season for future demands, aud there is
nothing more essential than selecting and
securing seeds. There aro hosts of seedsmen,
and many we hope all aro truly reliable, and
who will attend faithfully to filling all orders.
Aim to secure all tho varieties that aro to bo
planted, so that there shall bo no delay when
planting time arrives, or tho necessity of re
sorting to tho purchase of seed of questionable

An exchange says that if the cow, while

for the calf. If it is meant that the cow should
bo fed high, it is nonsense.
A heifer becomes a cow after she drops her
first calf and begins giving milk no matter at
what age, and the distinction is accepted gen
erally that she remains a heifer until maternal
obligations are assumed. This seems to be the

Practical Duties Taught by a Study of the Inter
national Sunday-school Lesson Appointed for
Feb. 17. St. 3Iark. 5:25-34.
fOiie reading these notes should first carefully
study the paragraph from the Holy Scriptures as
Subject: Christ's Cure of the Woman
Given up by the Doctors.
St. Matthew out of great consideration for
our Savior made a feast in his honor. This was
at tho residence of tho ex-publican, in the city
of Capernaum. At that supper Jesus uttered
several telling parables. While he was thus
giving a sort of post-prandial talk, one of the
Jewish rulers of the syuagog in Capernaum,
named Jairus, entered the house, interrupting
Chirst's instructions and begging him to come
over at ouce to his house and cure his daughter,
who was so very sick as not to be expected to
live. Jairus lived in another part of the city,
and Christ set out to accompany him over to
the house whore lay the sick girl. Quite a
procession was formed, for Christ's Disciples and
a goodly number of the people of Capernaum
joined Christ and Jairus in the walk from
Levi's house to that of the ruler. In the crowd
following was a very diseased woman, anxious
for cure, and believing Christ could relieve her.
The student must not be content with the
account given bv St. Mark, but also read care
fully the reports of St. Matthew 9: 20-22) and
St. Luke. (S:13-4S.) St. Matthew simply states
the facts. St. Mark's account is lull, as would bo
expected from an eye-witness. Since, as is
supposed, St. Mark simply penned for St. Peter,
we see the account was probably furnished by
the very one who sjioke out in answer to
Christ's question, expressing surprise Jesus
should want to know who touched him, when
the fact was that the hosts of persons were all
the time coming in contact with him and no
special one could be particularized. (St. Luke,
8 5 45.) The account by St. Luke bears evi
tleuce of authorship by a physician, as indeed
St. Luke really was.
This miracle which we study now took place
A. D. 27, probably in tho mouth of November.
This was in tbe third year of Christ's ministry
and tho thirty-third of his life. Wo go back
The woman was cured at Capernaum, some
where between tho residence of St. Matthew and
that of Jairus. It took.placo out in tho street.
Tho large part of Christ's miracles was per
formed in Galilee. A greater number were
effected' in Capernaum than in any other one
place, and hence its exaltation. (St. Matt.,
11:23.) Twenty out of his 39 miracles took
place in Galileo moro than ouo-balf of them.
Fourteen, or moro than ouo-third, were per
formed in Capernaum.
Tho porson healed was a woman. We ro
membor that tho mother of St. Peter's wife
was cured of a fever ; tho daughteV of the Syro
Phonician woman was restored; tho daughter
of Jairus was brought to life ; a woman was
cured of an infirmity of 18 years' duration.
Our Lord was on way to raise to lifo a littlo
girl when ho paused to euro the woman about
whom wo study this week. There is a legend
that her name was St. Veronica. On tho start
she was seemingly quite wealthy, but sho had
become poor through doctors' bills and ina
bility to acquire money. She had, as Lange
puts it, " an agony of faith." Sho expected to
bo cured without Christ discovering tho fact.
So to speak, she attempted to steal the remedy.
She was violating the law of Moses by thrust
ing herself among men and womeu. (Lev.,
15: 25.) Hers was a deceptive course. Con
scious she was ceremonially uncleau, aud by
right subject to be shut out from society, sho is
afraid to havo any discovery mado of her con
dition. It is no wonder sho was so shy.
6. The Doctor.
Tho Physician who cured tho woman was
Christ. Nobody else could cure hor. She had
tried all othors, and Jesus was her last resort.
A largo part of Christ's work was the healiug
of the sick.
7. The Disease.
The woman was afflicted with a chronic or
frequently-recurring hemorrhage Sho had
been thus afllicted for 12 years. Tho disorder
began when the daughter of Jnrius was born.
(St. Luke, 8 : 43.) It was a disease. (St. Matt.,
9 : 20.) It was incurable from a human stand
point. Tho sufferer had sought medical assist
ance from "many physicians." (St. Mark,
5:2G.) Hor disorder was painful, and tbe
methods of treatment in those days for Buch
diseaso wero torture. Indeed, she had a plague.
(St. Mark, 5:29, 34.) And she kept gotting
worse and poorer. At length sho gave up all

hope, till she chanced to hear of Christ's won
derful cures. He had performed eight miracles
beforo this in that very city, Capernaum.
8. The Cure.
The woman was cured. 1. Notice the condi
tions of core. a. She heard about Christ, and
a new hope revived. Each physician had in
spired in her some inspiration, but after 12
yoars of trial and disappointment sho would
not catch too quick nor with too much assur
ance a proffer of help. b. Sho believed the re
Xiorts, and therefore she believed Christ had
really effected the ifrand works which she had
heard attributed to him. c. She sought Christ's
presence. She acted in consistency with her
faith, d. She was terribly embarrassed by the
consciousness of tho impropriety of her being
on tho street, c. She was very persistent,
pressing her way through tho crowd. She was
determined to touch the hem of his garment,
believing she would thus bocured. When cured
she meant to say nothing, but simply retire.
Sho probably did not imagine that even
Christ would know anything about it. .
Sho had no money. 2. The prescription, or
rathor the cure. Tho Holy Spirit probably
gave tho prescription, or directed her Avhat to
do. She was to go and touch tho hem of
Christ's garment. Ordinarily Chri6t put forth
his hand aud touched the patient, but in this
caso the applicant for cure reaches forth to
seize the remedy. She was utterly mistaken
in her thought the cure came from the apparel.
The remedy was effected by the direct power of
God. Jesus can, see behind. He knew well
by his omniscience who followed him; her
thoughts ; her wrong conceptions and inten
tions. Ho knew the moment in which she
touched his raiment. As Christ felt virtue go
from him as he was conscious of the exercise
of divine power tho woman felt a chauge in
her body. As her hand grasped the hem she
felt a thrill of health go through her body.
She knew something had happened. Sho
sought health. Sho believed the new sensa
tions in her body were the sudden ouflowing of
the tides of physical strength, the reuewal of
normal processes. 3. The euro was painless.
The doctors had made severe applications; per
formed repeated distressing surgical operations.
4. The cure was public. It was not done in a
corner. It was well known tho woman was
in very poor health, though perhaps societydid
not know the nature of the diseaso. All the
doctors of Capernaum had experimented with
her. This had been going on for years. The
woman after 12 years of such experience, and
growing worse, would present a sad appear
ance But now all her neighbors see a won
derful chauge. And our Savior so manipulates
tho caso that all the multitude became ac
quainted with the particulars. 5. No time
was required. The cure was immediate. 6.
The cure was permanent. 7. It was a com
plete cure. The patient was not merely fixed
up, but she was made whole; became strong,
vigorous, active. 8. There wore many wit
nesses. Tho woman did not want it known,
but we should be williug to tell abont Christ's
wonderful deeds. We see by reading the threo
accounts that not only the Disci pies, but all the
crowd or press of people becam& aware of the
whole matter. 9. The effects, a. On Jesus.
He was couscious power had been exerted
through his omnipotence. We aro not to sup
pose that Christ was a sort of battery, needing
but a touch to give a healthful shock. We no
tice all who touched Christ wero not affected in
any peculiar way. The woman's touch was ef-
lectivo because Christ kuew her condition and
her faith. 6. On the woman. She was made
whole. She felt a thrill of iuvigoration- leap
throughout her body. Her disease did not
out mutch the power and skill of the Great
Physician. She was grateful. Wo see evi
dence of this in her conduct after cure. If
legend be true tho woman lived at Paneas, near
tho sources of the Jordan, and to the honor of
him who restored her to health erected a bras3
monument opposite her house. It is said that
when Christ was on trial before Pilate she pro
claimed his innocence, c On the crowd. We
have no record of how the peoplo regarded the
euro. d. On the Disciples. They must have
been quickened in faith, e. On ns. Wo read
the account aud learn to hold Chrfet in still
greater love. Our study of the lesson this
week should quicken our affection for our
Savior and stir up our gratitude. With this
story beforo us it is easier to believe in Chris
tianity. All women havo special reason to
adore Jesus as their real Friend and Eescuer.
1. The sick should seek Christ in prayer and
faith. Thus they will secure health, comfort
(St. Matt., 9:22), peace. (St. Mark, 0 : 34.) Yet
shame keeps many from Jesns. 2. Sin is sick
ness. There is no remedy but Jesus. Christ
knows your faith if others do not. Nevermind
if your money be all gone. (Isa.,55:l.) There
is no bill for the Balm of Gilead. 3. Believe
Christ aud in Christ. Have a grand ideal of
his ability and willingness. 4. Exert a good
infiuenco wherever you are. Lot virtuo
sjicad through your Godly example. 5. If ever

whoso constitution is all brokon down from

entitled to as much ponsiou as a soldier who
has lost a baud or foot. They cannot gut too
much. But compare these two : tho one with
ono hand or foot off can get about, and the most
of them can do almost as much manual laboras
over; whilo tho man whose constitution is
broken down can do nothing but drag himself
