If the June rose could guess 8 8

And reddened into life her faint young blood,
What blight should fall upon her loveliness,
What darkness of decay, what shroud of snow
Would the rose ever blow?
If the wild lark could feel ^t
When first between two worlds he caroled
Voicing the ecstasy of either sphere,
What apathy of song should o'er him steal,
What broken accents and what faltering

Alas, and yet alas,
For glory of existence that shall passI

Yet were the untried life a deeper wrong.

LUCY, STONE'S COUNSE L.
The advice to women to promote
their health by out-door exercise is nev-
er wanting. Bu no amount of fresh-
air exercise can save women from the
evil effects of their present style of
dress. It is their clothes that kills
Every step a woman takes, her foot
contends with her skn t. She lifts it on
the instep, and she lifts it on the heel.
The weight may be ounces or pounds,
but it is taken up at eveiy step. Th
heavy skirts, with flounces, overskirt,
bustle, biaid, beads and other trimmings
hang their many pounds and many
yards flapping around the feet and legs
of the wearer The corset does dot al
low space to take full breath, and the
tight sleeves cause the muscles to cry
Dressed in this fashion, the wearer
comes back from her walk for "fresh
air and exercise" tned through and
through, and is the woise for it, be
cause she has lifted and carried a
weight of many pounds.
Stand at any city street corner, and
watch the women as they pass. How
tiled they look' How their diesses
flap aiound them' Contrast them with
the men. Men's feet lift no weight of
clothes. Men's steps contend with
nothing. Eveiy muscle has its natural
exercise Out-door ur and exercise are
good for them.
The advice women need is for short
er, lightei and looser esses. Mrs.
Jeness-Miller has not come a diytoo
soon with her better costume it the
health of women is to be improved.
Mrs. Celia Whitehead has shown
"what's the matter". Befoie her Mrs.
Amelia Bloomer, nearly foity years ago,
set the example of short loose dresses.
That style was adopted by ma ny wo
men, among them Mi Elizabeth Cady

NEXT TEAR'S STRAWBERRIES.
The earlier the strawberry patch is
set out the better will be the crop next
season if given good care. Perhaps the
best time to make beds is early in the
Spring, but a farmer who has none of
this delicious fruit may plant now and
reap a fair crop next Spring, while next
Spring's planting will require a year's
care betoie getting anything from it.
not take all plants fiom the beds.
Wait until the new lunners aie fairly
rooted and set them. While the pecu
lianties of flavor and growth are fresh
on the mind it is easier for the planter
to select what he wants. Trust a good

FOOD FOR HARD "WORKERS.
It is sometimes astonishing to men
and women with somewhat delicate
stomachs how heartily workers on the
harvest fields or at thieshing will take
to the most substantial victuals. Pork
and potatoes pork and beans. Fo
threshers the extra piece of roast beef is
generally provided because the the fam-
ily table is then much larger and such a
standby helps out the housewife in pro-
viding for a horde of hungry men
fThey will eat almost any thing that is
substantial food, but do not usually
hanker after delicacies unless it be in
drinking. Boot beer, lemonade, milk
n* hdand water or buttermilk are all relished,
^Mor threshing is hot and dusty work.
,But these are for the barn. When it
com es to the tea table, coffee and cocoa
with plenty of cool water are enough
for drinks, and little care need be given
to dilecacies such as sauces and cakn.
Men who work hardest care least for
these. I is nourishment for strength
rather than something to tickle the pal
ate that they most require,
5 iff BED CLOVER.
Prof. Halstead of Io wa has this good
word for red clover:
pasture and "Over large areas of
meadow, where all else is seemingly
dead, the red clover is green and grow
ing. The great trouble is that clover
is not half abundant enough within the
region of drouth. Clover not fully
appreciated, and if this prolonged dry
spell will lead to a better understanding
of clover and its merits, the drouth wiU
not have been without its valuable les
son. While the bluegrass and timothy
have shallow roots, the clover sends its
feeders down many feet into the sub
soil. It does almost as well as the pig
weeds and pusley,* which is praise
enough for so valuable a forage plant."
BOYS I N THE EARNEST FIELD.
The harvest field is not a proper place
for a boy. If the work there is well
done it takes a man to the utmost.
Either the boy must injure himself or
his employer. If too ambitious he will
overtax his strength and "break down"
early in life. If not ambitious he does
not do his work well. Inferior work is
not profitable in few places is it less so
than in the harvest fields. If the grain
is poorly bound or shocked the loss is
many times what would be the cost of
having the work done well. A stout
man, competent to do a full day's work
and do it well, will cost only one $1
more than a boy. will cost more by
the price of a bushel of wheat or two of
oats, yet the boy will bind or shock in
such a way that there will be a loss of
several bushels of wheat or oats. A bun
dle loosely tied loses grain every time it
is handled, and it spoils the shock, lead
ing to the damage of it and several oth
I have noticed that where a boy was
employed in the harvest field the other
laborers shirked their work. If a bun
dle was loosely tied or a shock poorly
built it could be blamed on the boy. I
have often thought that the chief office
of the boy in the harvest held was to
bear the sins of others. And those sins
will be greater than if there is no boy to
bear them. The farmer will lose more
than the difference between boys' wages
by the less value of the work done by
the men.JOHN M. STAHL.
THE FORESTRY CONGRESS.
The fact is significant at this time
that the above named association will
meet at Springfield, HI., Sept. 14, 15
and 16, 1887, in response to a special
invitation tendered by the Legislature
of that State. It is also significant that
the Legislature of Nebraska, by special
resolution, tendered the society the hos
pitality of the State and the free use of
the Hall of Representatives, for their
annual session of 1887. Th able Sec
letary, Prof. E Ternow, says: "We
are few in number, poor in funds, with
out a personal object, but we work
faithfully, with the conviction that we

Among the devoted members of the
congress are several who have not miss
ed a meeting since the organization of
the society. This devotion to the cause
will be better understood with a knowl
edge of the fact that the past three meet
ings have been held at Montreal, Canada,
St. Paul, Minn., and Denver, Colorado,
and that members pay all expenses of
travel and the incidental and publishing
expenses of the congress. This devoted
band work with the hope that sooner or
later wise legislation in Congress and
the States will be secured, relative to
the preservation of primitive forests on
mountains and the head wateis of
streams, and forest planting over large
open areas in great blocks as piacticed
in all the continental portions of east
and west Europe. They will unitedly
agree with Father Clarkson that we need
not look to local sloughs, ponds or
forests for our water supply. Ye they
will unitedly agree that the wise distri

King Humbert of Italy, according
to an American Register correspondent,
is known for his temperance in all
things, except in that of smoking. I
has often been noticed what an exceed

himself on all occasions, and as to
drink, his guests may have it in plenty,
but his favorite "tipple" is water. His
one great weakness was (for it is a
thing of the past, a good cigar. was
a formidable smoker but he abused
his tastes in that line to such an extent
that he has taken a new departure and
"sworn oft" from the fragrant weed.
His nerves had begun to suffer, he had
asthmatic turns, and could sleep but
little, and then had to be propped up
by plenty of pillows. Some weeks ago
his physician told him what was the
matter, and King Humbert said:
"From this day forth I will not smoke
another cigar, or anything in the
shape of tobacco. Hi majesty has
kept his woid, and the result has been
a mo st noticeble improvement in his
health. Ki ng Humbert is a man of
iron will, and no one doubts that he
will keep his self made pledge.

The Destructive Power Torpedoes.
The destructive power of torpedoes
was recently illustrated in the Re
sistance experiments but no exact
account of their action has yet been
published, as far as we know, of their
use in actual warfare^&^Although the
destruction of the Chinese corvefr Yang
W during the fight between the
French and Chinese at Fooehow has
almost been forgotten, no authentic re
port of the encounter has ever reached
us. Th account just given of the
annihilation of the Chinese vessel by a
close eye-witness is therefore doubly
interesting. The writer says that the
French flagship had two torpedo boats
attached to her at the gangways. Th
ship was about 30 0 yards below the
Yang Wo. A soon as the firing com
menced, both boats attacked the Chinese
vessel. Th first one fired her torpedo
directly under the Yang Wo' after
gangwaystarboard side. N damage
whatever was done to the ship but the
officer in charge of the torpedo-boat
was wounded in the chest by the return
action of the torpedo. The other had
in the meantime attacked the ship for
ward, a little abaft the cathead, on the
same side. This torpedo was in direct
contact with the ship. The effect was
that, wh en the torpedo exploded, it
penetrated the fore magazine, or rather
the fire from it did. This blew up and
the whole forward part of the ship was
demolished. This all happened within
three minutes. Th remainder of the
wreck drifted ashore, and burned for
several days. Th Yang W was a
wooden corvet of fourteen guns. Th
torpedoes used were boomscontact
