THE DEAR OLD SONGS O HOMES:
O wheel sublime of tireless time,
Turn backward in your flight,
Ring out the chime in fairy rhyme
OF boyhood's music bright I
Like bells of joy outranging,
Those memories old are clinging
Now faint, now near again I hear
In accents clear where er I roam,
My mother sweetly singing,
Singing, sweetly singing,
The dnar old songs of home.
Make me a bov, with boyhood's joy,
As in the days ofeold,
When ruddy blazeTbefore our gaze
Went up sparks of gold,
I see the kettle swinging,
The shadow round it clinging,
Till once again sweet refrain,
On land or main, where'er I I oam,
I hear my mother singing
Singing, sweetly singing,
The dear old songs ot home.
At set of sun, when day was done,
Like silver chiming bells,
Rose on the air, with evening prayer
The song we loved so well
Still in my ear they're uuging
And memories old are bringing,
Like gentle shower, of boyhood's hour,
With subtle power, where're I roam,
Of mother sweetlv singing,
Singing, sweetly singing
The dear old songs of home
No time can blot this fragrant spot,
This chime of silvei bells,
But oft my heart with sudden start
The secret sui ly Mi
Then 'mid the glad bolls ringing,
With holy thoughts upspi mging,
Now faint, then clear, again I hear
In accents dear, wheie'ie 1 loam,
My mother sweetly singing,
Singing, sweetly singing,

Many hours of valuable time are lost
by bad management in handling manure
The average man will unload in a
small pile a load of manure weigh
ing 2300 to 2800 pounds in ten minutes.
A man must be active to spread that
amount evenly and shake it to pieces
thoroughly in forty-six nunutes. A
little practice will enable a man to un
load and paitly scatter the load in
filteen minuter Preparatory to spread
ing with a drag I distribute as follows
Partially scatter on one side of the
wagon, making the manure cover a
space on the ground as wide as the
drag is, say four feet, diive the wagon
in a straight line until unloaded, be
gin with the next load where you
staited with the fiist and throw the
manure off so that a space of about
four feet will remain uncovered.
After unloading say twenty loads in
this way and before the manure has
had time to become hard and diy,
cioss these rows with the drag, making
the horse travel rapidly A fast walk
does well, but a slow trot is better.
Verj good work can be done in this
way. In one and two-third hours I
have spread twelve to fifteen loads,
unloaded as above directed. The most
of it was pulvenzed better and finer
than you would ordinarily do with a
pitchfork some long manuie needed
spreading with the fork afterwards.
The manure was dragged three times.
Notice the time saved Placing the
time of a team equal to that of a man,
nearly six hours' labor is saved by

The cellar window should be opened
at night as late as practicable, and
should be protected from thievish cats
and other prowling animals by strong
open wire screens. The cool air of the
night, which is drier than the air ot
midday, will enter and purify the room.
The windows should be closed before
sunrise, if possible, and kept closed
and shaded all day. If the cellar is
ventilated in the daytime the warm air
rushes in and meets a current of colder
air, and thus the moisture held in sus
pension by the warm air is deposited on
the cellar walls and may often be seen
running in streams down the sides.
The cellar soon becomes damp and
mouldy. A number of cases of that
fungoid disease, diptheria, according to
a recent issue of the London Lancet,
have been traced to the presence of
common mould fungi, such as grows in
damp cellars. It pays to sit up late
and get up early to open and close the
cellar windowsNew York Tribune.
WOMEN AS FLORISTS.
Some ladies in Southern Illinois are
engaged in raising bulbs for the market,
tuberoses and gladioli, and there is a
similar firm managed by a lady in
South Carolina. The leading florist of
Cleveland is a woman of culture and
refinement, who began without any
capital save brains and willing hands.
She is very successful in business, and
has the distinction of being one of the
most artistic designers in the trade.
Of course, every flower-loving woman
is not fitted for this work, but the fact
remains that it is an honorable and
fairly remunerative employment, and
may well take its place among occupa
tions for women.
A READY POULTICE.
Wounds made by rusty tools.or nails,
or by the teeth of dogs and other ani
mals, are not only very painful, but
generally quite dangerous. To allay
the pain, extract the poison and hasten
the healing process, there is nothing we
know of so wonderfully effective as
raw, fat, salt pork and onions, equal
parts, chopped up together and applied
in a thick layer either directly to the
wound or folded into a single layer of
linen. Leave on until healed. Even
a slice of raw salt pork tied over the
wound made by a rusty nail, will draw
the inflammation all out, render the
ftesh clear white and leal up the injury
in a shorter time than any drug known
to us will do it. This is the best use
that can be made of fat pork, a3 we do
not believe in its free internal applica
tion, especially in Summer.Orchard

INJURY TO CORNSTALKS.
In many places I learn that the hay
croo is shortened by drouth, though
hereabouts a fair crop was secured.
Possibly scarcity of hay may prove a
blessing in disguise to those farmers
who have heretofore left the corn fod
der go to waste. The wasteful West
ern plan of stripping the ripened ears
from standing stalks and leaving the
latter to the storms of Winter has nev
er obtained heie. Some stock farmers
leave stocks of corn out all Winter un
husked, or else husk it and leave the
stalks in moderate-sized bunches until
ready for use. If the stalks are put up
properly this is not a bad way, though
the bunches should be drawn and bet
on sod rather than in the cornfield to
be muddied when wet weather begins
and frozen down a little later. In
saving cornstalks outside the silo it is
unsafe to put them either green or wet
with rains in large bodies before cold
weather. High, narrow stacks built
around a pole keep them better than
they will in barns, and as each stack
is small it is not long exposed to the
weather after being opened. But un
til so put up some care should be taken
to set up fallen stocks of corn and of
stalks in the field. A great deal of
valuable fodder and grain is wasted by
needless exposure during the Fall.
PUMPKINS FOR COWS.
Although this has been a good corn
year there are also plenty pumpkins, a
rather unusual circumstance, as the
two crops trying to grow on the same
ground generally injure one and entire
ly spoil the other. Pumpkins are ex
cellent feed for cows raw if given in
limited quantities. Most cows are rav
enously fond of them, and if fed too
freely will run to fat rather than to
milk. The seeds are strongly diuretic,
and if fed with the pumpkins will set
the urinary organs to working rather
than those for milk secretion.
HERB AND THERE.
Even in warm weather a hot mess
will be relished by the pigs, and will

Keep that permanent pasture in mind

The Lancet: It has always 'seemed
to us to be somewhat of a satire on the
work of nature that the female form
should be thought to require the sup
port of a corset in order to make it
graceful. We observe, therefore, with
satisfaction that ladies, and even young
ladies, are here and there to be found
who have, with equal courage and good
sense, dispensed with this unnecessary
aiticle of dress. $ Among the majority
who continue to wear it there are also
signs, though less pronounced, of the
same healthy tendency.. Tight-lacing
is viewed with much less favor than
formerly. Women as well as men are
coming to see that artificial slenderness
is not beauty, and indeed the sham and
unreason apparent in a figure wantonly
contracted must create in all thinking
persons a feeling of repugnance which
effectualy prevents the possibility of ad
miration. Victims of this hurtful prac
tice and grievous error in taste are
btill, however, not uncommon. Only a
few days ago an inquest on the body of
an elderly female revealed the fact that
death was due to the direct consequence
of her having the stays too tightly
laced. This is by no means the first
instance in which the coveted fineness
of waist hasbeen thus dearly purchased.
It is, in fact, impossible that this cus
tom can but injure health, for what are
its effects? By tight lacing, which
forces together the elastic ribs and har
rows the space within the thorax, free
action of the lungs is obviously ren
dered impossible the liver and heart
are displaced, and the great blood ves
sels unnaturally stretched. The un
fortunate worshiper of a false ideal loses
with free respiration the due effect of
the most powerful force which aids the
heart in driving its blood through the
bodythe force of thoracic suction.
Displacement of the heart, moreover
can only result in palpitation or severer
cardiac troubles. Thus it comes to
pass that every organ and tissue is un
dernourished, digestion is little more
than a meaningless term, and healthy
life in any part of the body is unknown.
This may seem to be forcible language,
but it is nevertheless the clothing of
facts which it does not merely envelope,
but in many cases fits with a strictness
not incomparable to the firm embrace
of the most fashionably strait corset.
A Indian Wake.
At midnight we were present at a
kind f "wake" over the daughter of
an Indian Chief who had suddenly died
and was to be cremated the following
day. Clad in high top boots, each per
son carrying a lantern, we tramped
over a pathless bit of country some dis
tance back from the shore, through a
muddy, slimy soil. Some time before
we reached the spot the groans and
shrieks of the mourners conld be heard.
Arriving at the Chief's hut, our guide
first crawls in, crouching low, and dis
appears. Soon emerging, he leads us
in single file through the opening, only
only two feet high. A weird sight pre
sents itself. In the centre is a fire of
loose logs and brush the smoke, after
filling the hut as well as the lungs of
the occupants, passes out through a
hole in the roof. Seated around the fire
on the ground are the wives and rela
tives of the Chief. At the further end,
on a kind of bed, lie the remains of the
Chief's pretty daughter, a girl of 18.
Her black hair lay loosely over the
pillow. A tiny red handkerchief en
circled her pretty throat a deer-skin
was laid over her body, and over it her
exquisitely molded arms were gracefully
crossed at the head and foot of the
body a pine knot was burning, sending
flashes of light over the scene. The
Chief stood at her head. A huge fellow
with a hard, villanous countenance em
braced us warmly, much to our discom
foit. After this ceremony we all
squatted about the fire, enlarging the
circle of mourners, and fell in with the
general chorus as best as we could.
Science in the House
Science, in a mild form, is now occu
pying itself in making many inventions
for domestic purposes, saving time and
trouble to the housekeeper. Among
the latest are striking sandglasses to be
used by the cook, or another, in opera
tions which require a specified amount
of time and attention. One of these
glasses is so weighted and hung that
the emptying of the sand reverses it
and causes a metal attachment to strike
against the stand in falling, thus giving
a note of warning, so that the person
using it is able to attend to other things
meanwhile, instead of having, as form
erly, to give unceasing glances at the
running of the sand. This little imple
ment everybody who has ever boiled an
egg or done any other brief thing of
the kind, by the help ol a three-minute
glass, will feel to be a great enfran
chisement. Another invention useful
to those who keep birds, is a cage, on
one side of the floor of which is fitted a
roll of thick water-proof paper, running
through grooves and crossing the en
tire bottom of the cage. Every morn
ing the soiled paper is pulled through
and torn off in its own crease without
more ado, ready to be thrown in the
fire, and the fresh paper, in the act of
pulling off the soiled, has taken its
place, thus sparing the person whose
duty it is to attend to the cleanliness of
the cage, much trouble and annoyance

Wonderful Escape from Death?'
One of the most. singular incidents
connected with the burning of the
Opera Comique, says a Paris letter, was
the wonderful escape from death of one
of the chorus-singers. On the first alarm
he had rushed up-stairs to his dress
ing-room on the fourth floor to save his
small possessions, and on arriving there,
overcome with heat and smoke, he had
fallen on the floor in a swoon. There
he lay in a state of utter insensibility
for over two hours. His dressing
room wa3 fortunately situated in an
angle of the building which flames did
not reach, the state of syncope in which
he was had suspended respiration, and
so, unharmed by the fire or by the
poisonous smoke and gases evolved
from the burning scenery, he remained
there in safety while death and destruc
tion were rioting around him. It was
long past*11 o'clock when he came to
his senses and realized the horror and
danger of hi3 position. He made his
escape by a staircase leading to the
Rue de Marivaux, and on finding him
self in safety he once more became un
conscious and was taken to a phar
macy from whence he was transferred
to a hospital. A few days ago he was
discharged cured, after suffering severe
ly from his long sojourn in the pestilen
tial atmosphere of the burning building.
He can now boast of being the only
peison who remained for two hours in
the Opera Comique after the fire broke
out, and who then escaped not only
alive, but comparatively unhurt.

A Queer Will.
A lawyer of^niy acquaintance yester
day told me about a queer will which
was lately laid before him in his pro
fessional capacity. The testator, a
physician of considerable wealth, after
providing liberally for bis family, left
in trust the sum of $10,000, the in
come of which was to be paid over an
nually to "some professional man who
has failed in life," the trustees having
the power to transfer the income
from one person to another if they
should see fit. Several of the heirs and
residuary legatee, he told me desired
to contest the will on the ground that
this strange bequest was too indefinite
to be sustained in law. What is failure,
and who can undertake to say that So
and-so has failed in life, whereas So
and-so has succeeded? This would
have been their b'ne of argument if the
casehad comeinto court, but it was final
ly resolved to accept the will as it stands,
and the sum of $500 or $600 will be at
the disposal of the trustees annually
for the purpose indicated. According
to the will the dioposition of this an
nual sum is to remain a secret between
the trustees and the beneficiary. Bos

Mrs. E. I*. MORGAN, of No. 11 Lexington St.,
East Boston, Mass., says: "Five years ago I
was a dreadful sufferer from uterine troubles.
Having exhausted the skill of three phy

weak I could with difficulty cross the room

health had been restored, and offering to send the full particulars
to any one writing me for them, and enclosing a slamped-en

In reply, I have described my case and the treatment used,
and have earnestly advised them to 'do likewise.' From a great

had commenced the use of 'Favorite Prescription,' had sent the

local treatment so fully and plainly laid down therein, and were
much better already."
.J5? fotlemiite words, In praise of DB. PIEBCB'S FAVOHTEB PRESCEIKHOK aa a remedy for those delicate diseases and weak,
nesses peculiar to women, must be of interest to every sufferer from such maladies. They-are fair samples of the spontaneous
expressions with which thousands give utterance to their sense of gratitude for the inestimable boon of health which has been
restored to them by the use of this world-famed medicine.
JOHNSLSEQAB, of Mmmbeck, Va., writes:
My wife had been suffering for two or three
years with female weakness, and had paid
out one hundred dollars to physicians with
out relief. She took Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription and it did her more good than
_, all the medicine given to her by the physi
cians during the three years they had been practicing upon her."
Mrs. GEORGE: HXSRGER, of Weatfletd, JV. Y.,
writes: I was a great sufferer from leucor
rhea, bearing-down pains, and pain contin
ually across my back. Three bottles of your
'Favorite Prescription' restored me to per
fect health. I treated with Dr. for
aside, and feel as well as I ever did.
TREATING THE WRONG DISEASE.
Many times women call on their family physicians, suffering, as they imagine, one from dyspepsia, another from heart disease,
another from liver or kidney disease, another from nervous exhaustion or prostration, another with pain here or there, and in
this way they all present alike to themselves and their easy-going and indifferent, or over-busy doctor, separate and distinct diseases,
for which he prescribes his pills and potions, assuming them to be such, when, in reality, they are all only symptoms caused by some
womb disorder. The physician, ignorant of the cause of suffering, encourages his practice until large bills are made. The suffering
atient gets no better, Dut probably worse by reason of the delay, wrong treatment and consequent complications. A proper medicine,
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, directed to the cause would have entirely removed the disease, thereby dispelling all those
distressing symptoms, and instituting comfort instead of prolonged misery.

army of different physicians, and spent large sums
of money, but received no lasting benefit. At last my husband
persuaded me to try your medicines, which I was loath to do,
because I was prejudiced againBt them, and the doctors eaid
they would do me no good. I imally told my husband that if
he would get me some of your medicines, I would try them
against the advice of my physician. He got me six bottles of the
