Through the storm
The waves were high, the bitter winds were
Yet breathing warm
Of skies serene, of sunny uplands lying
In peace beyond
This tender voice, unto my voice replying,?!

Sometimes, indeed, like crash of armies meet-

GEBMANY AN THE POTATO BUG.
Farmers need object lessons. The
German Government caught the idea
when they feared an invasion of the
fatherland with the decern lineata, our
own potato bettle. That every man,
woman or child who worked in the field
might recognize the new foe at first
sight, and set the heel upon htm, the
government had faithful, exact, life-like
pictures of the potato bettle scattered
all through the land. The pictures
were made of exact colors and size of the
beetle. Theyshow him up in all stages
of developoment, from egg to larvae,
from larvse to full-grown beetles, and
placed them on the potato plant and
on the ground in natural positions.
Then follow written descriptions of
habits, time of appearance, and how to
destroy them. Every German was
taught to destroy the curse at sight.
In every school-room and every pub
lic house or building and in every farm
house these cuts and instructions could
be seen. Every child in Germany
doubtless knows enough of this beetle
now to know what is best to do with
him. The potato beetle was welcomed
with bloody hands to a hospitable grave
onGeiman soil. Just so should we
welcome every foreign weed or insect
or sparrow that appears here. Had
Americans been as well and promptly
informed of the nature and appearance
of the Hessianfly,and what to do with
it, can it be supposed that the curse
would have become so universal? Our
government can not expend our money
more wisely than by furnishing such
information It is not enough to have
a volume of heavy reading matter illus
trated by a few cats go out as dead
matterdead because too late.
A correspondent of the Country
Gentleman says: The best method
of keeping cabbage that I ever tried
was to select a piece of ground quite
dry, and at the same time mellow and
easy to trench wifh spade, or, if a
large number are to be preserved, use
a plough first and then the spade, or
round-pointed shovel,to shape the bot
tom and sides, and of sufficient width
and depth to receive the heads so they
will not touch either bottom or sides
of the trench. Now, take apiece of 2
by 4 inch scantling and place it edge
wise over the tiench in such a position
that the heads will not touch either
side or bottom, after stripping off the
coarse, outside leaves suspend the
heads under the scantling,
roots up, by putting a suitable nail
thiough the stump of the cabbage, the
roots coming up a trifle higher than the
natural earth then take some short
pieces of board, or other suitable matte
rial, just long enough to make a sort
of 1 after reaching fiom the edge of
the bank to the scantling, in such posi
tion as to give a slight pitch place a
board on these rafters, lenghtwise, of
course scatter over it a sufficient quan
tity of straw, or other coaise material,
to prevent the earth from falling in
throw on a sufficient quantity of loose
earth which came out of the trench, to
prevent too much freezing, and it will
keep the heads 'cool and sufficiently
moist. Delay placing the heads in pos
ition as long as the weather will permit.
The trenches may be in sections of 10
or 12 feet, as opening in spring it
would be better not to let the air come
to all at once.
If any time can be spared from other
work, *he fields which are to be sown
to wheat or to grass seed thisfall should
be plowed as soon as may be. Plowed
now and worked over with the cultiva
tor or with the disk harrow a few times
before the time for seeding will make a
better seed bed that if plowed before
sowing time, and the weed seed will
have opportunity to germinate and
killed, so that weeds will be much less
plenty. Often in afield plowed just be
fore seeding, the weeds get such a good
start of the good seed as to place the
latter at a disadvantage all the season.
A worthless weed often takes the man
ure and the moisture that should have
supported the crop, and then so shades
the other as to give it but a small chance
for life. It is easy to kill a few million
weeds in a day with the harrow or
horse-shoe, if they are only encouraged
to sprout, and then kill while small.
It is not too late to sow Hungarian
grass, millet or fodder-corn this month,
if there is land that can be used for such
crops. The first often does better sown
July than in June. The corn will not
get as large growth or be as valuable
for feeding as if it were sown earlier,
but as a green feed if pastures dry
or grow poor in September it may
very good to have on hand, and if not
needed then it may be cut for winter
use, and will prove "better than snow
balls, although requiring some grain
to be fed with it.
AU thesmall grains are ready for har
vest this month. They are best if out
just as theyhave passed out of the milk,
but while the grain is easily broken by
the pressure of the finger-nail. They
will then cure in the stock, and may be
taken to the barn for thrashing without
the seed rattling out and wasting. If
out too green the seed often shrinks
jbadly, though this is more frequently
duetoimproper or insufficient manur-
ing than to early cutting. If the heads
are well filled out and hang down and
begin to take on the bright goldencolor
it is time to commence the harvest* -It
has probably grown all it will. If the
bundles axe made and put in the stock
on a bright, warm day it may be done
as fast as cut, without any waiting for
it to dry. The stocks being upright
the moisture will evaporate and pass off
without trouble. If there are, as there
should not be, many large, green weeds
in the grain, they should be thrown out
before binding, not only because they
may not cure well and will mold the
straw and grain, but because their seeds
should not be in the grain. Some of
them are not good feed for either man
.sj- HOW TO MAKE VIENNA BREAK
Many a good housewife who visited
the Centennial Exposition at Philadel
phia determined that she *would make
bread equal to that baked at the Vien
na bakery, and she has since tried,
and tried in vain. The fault, however,
is not in the making or the baking of
the bread, but the flour. The Hunga
rian flours used at the Vienna bakeries
are better than any in this country
that is they contain more gluten. The
gluten of the flour-is the body whose
tenacity and elasticity, when in the'
dough, enables it to hold the bubbles of
gas which are formed in the process of
rising, and consequently a flour which
is deficient in gluten cannot make a
light bread. The gluten however when
present in sufficient amount, must be
in such a physical condition as not to
be injured and discolored by the fer
mentation which goes on in the dough
through the action of the yeast. The
methods of milling are, of course, res
ponsible for the condition in which the
gluten is left in the flour originally, but
the length of time and manner in which
the flour is stored and preserved have
their ultimate effect upon it. The
Hungarian flours average 87 per cent
of moist gluten, while that from the
Minnesota mills averages only 20 per
cent. May we not hope for an improve
ment in the character of our wheats,
and also for better methods of milling,
that will produce the very best quality
of flonrP Meanwhile a few bushels of
home-grown wheat or rye ground at
a country mill will afford excellent
bread, the staff of life.
There has notbeen much opportunity
for cutting grass early this year, or any
great neccessity for it. The backward
ness of the season has prevented it
from ripening on the dry knolls, or
from lodging in rich and moist places
as it has done in some years before
Thanks to mowing machines, ted
ders, horse rakes, and horse forks it
does not take as long as it used to
take to get the hay upon a farm. If
the beginning is a little later than
usual it is possible to crowd the woik
fast, and it may be well to put a few
of such long days, from sun to sun, as
our grandfathers used to make. If
the evening from 4 until 8 o'clock, and
the same time in the morning is spent
in cutting grass, and the rest of the day
in stirring, raking and putting it in
the barn a great deal may be handled,
and the hay will not need as much
labor expended upon it as if the foie
noon was spent in mowing and the
afternoon in raking and drawing in.
By this method the hay will be sweet,
nutntitious and get well cuied.
Whatever else the tanner neglects he
must not neglect to keep the weeds
down during this next month, if he ex
pects to have a good crop this year, or
land clear of weed seeds next year.
No time on the farm is spent to better
advantage than that of destroying the
weeds in July and August, before they
ripen any seed, yet many farmers think
after the Fourth of July the crops will
take care of themselves, and keep the
weeds back so they will do no injury.
This is a mistake. Potatoes and even
corn will be injured by weeds that come
from the seed after the first of July, but
the injury to the land by filling it with
weed seeds, and increasing the labor of
cultivation another season at leastthree
fold, is even greater.

A fine statue of Captain Nathan

as a spy by the-British in the B&golji

between the soles of his shoes and
turned to the point on the shore where
he had first landed. He expected to

to Norwalk the next morning. The
next morning he was captured, no
doubt by Tory treachery, and taken to
Howe's headquarters, the mansion of
James Beekman, situated at (the pres

That was on the 21st of September.
Without trial and upon the evidence

a chaplain his request was refused. Jfcte
asked for Bible it was denied. But at
the solicitation of the young officer he
was furnished with writing materials,
and wrote briefly to his mother, his
sister and his betrothed. When the in
famous Cunningham, to whom Howe"
had delivered him, read what was
written he was funous at the&nbble and
dauntless spirit shown, and

aftei wards that "the rebels should never

treat me. said I might try Cod liver oil if I
liked, as that was the only thing th at could possi
bly ha ve any curative power over consumption so
far advanced. I tried the Cod liver oil as a last
treatment, but I was so weak I could not keep it
on my stomach. husband, not feeling satisfied
to give me up yet though he had bought for me
everything he saw advertised for complaint, procured a quan
tity of your Golden Medical Discovery.' I took only four bottles,
and, to the surprise of everybody, a to-day doing own work,
and am entirely free from th at terrible cough which harrassed me
night and day. I have been afliicted wi th rheumatism for a number
of years, and now feel so much better th at I believe, wi th a con
