tfallt, Nuts, Serein, and Hold.
One of tho most component parts of
n good farmer is mechanical ingenuity.
S6mo loso lialf a day's time, for want of
knowing how to ropnlr a breakage,
which an ingenious -person could do in
Ave minutes. A team und two or three
ud)irc, sflHrimcs stopped a wholo day,
at a crlticaTB'efgpn, for want of n Uttlo
iicchanical skill. It is well for every
farmer to have at hand tho facilities for
'pairing. In addition to tho moro com
on. tools, ho should keep a supply ol
nails of different sizes, screws, bolts, and
nuts. Common cut nails arc too brittle
for repairing Implements, or for other
similar purposes. Buy only tho very
nest and anneal them, and they will an
swer all tho ordinary purposes of tho
best wrought nails. To anneal them,
all that Is necessary is to heat them red
hot in a common Arc, and cool grad
ually. Let them cool, for Instance, by
remaining in tho lire while it burns
down and goes out. One such nail, well
clinched, will bo worth half a dozen tin-
unnealed. Nothing is moro common
than for 1t farmer to visit a blacksmith
shop to get a broken or lost bolt or rivet
inserted, and often a singlo nut on a
bolt. This must bo paid for, and much
time Is lost. By providing a supply of
bolts, nuts, and rivets much troublo may
bo saved. They may bo purchased
wholesalo at a low rate. Theso should
bo always kept in shallow boxes, with
compartments made for tho purpose,
furnished with a bow-handlo for con
venienco in carrying them. Ono box,
with half a dozen divisions, may bo ap
propriated to nails of different sizes;
another, with as many compartments,
to screws, bolts, rivets, etc. Every
farmer should keep on hand a supply
of copper wire, and small pieces of sheet
copperorcopper Straps. Copper wiro Is
better, thmJnnnealod iron wiro; it is al
most 'risjflexiblo as twine, nnd may bo
bent anaVtwmasdcslrcd ; and it will
not rust. Coppcrstfaps nailed across
or around a fracture or split in any
wooden articlo will strengthen it in a
To Dry Sweet Corn.
The question is asked, What is the
best way to euro sweet corn? I usually
prepare a good supply overy year for
Winter, and do it In tho following man
ner: I plant a suct'ession of crops overy
two weeks from early Spring to tho
fourth or tenth of July. That which
ripens, say near tho closo of September,
' is dried. In good weather, then, tho
ntmosphero is chosen, tho drying pro
cess is so speedy that it is past danger
beforo tho fermentation can take place.
Gather tho corn whilo in tho best con
dltlon for eating; husk and boil It ten
minutes, or just suHlcicnt to scald tho
starch it contains ; cut or scrapo tho corn
from tho cobs immediately, and spread
it upon sheets placed on a tolerably flat
roof, Inclining south or west, or upon
scaffold. If thus elovatcd from tho
ground it is not visited by flics. If put
out, as it should be, early in tho morn
ing, by night It will bo so dry as to bo
past danger from fermentation. If tho
night promises fair, it Is best to-spread
a sheet over it and let it remain, or it
may bo token in and tho cloth spread
on tho floor. Two days moro of good
sun will complcto tho drying, when it
may bo put in a linen bag and hung up
in a dry, airy place. Some dry in stoves
and ovens ; but in this way It is liablo
to bo scorched ; nor is It as sweet and
good, dried in tills way, as when dried
In tho open nlr by tho sun. Beforo
cooking, tho corn should bo put to soak
tho night previous., and placed where
tho temperature is warm. Prepared in
tins way it w hardly Inferior to corn di
rect from tho field. Country Gentleman.
Thin Out nnd Hoe the Turnips.
Success with nny root crop depends
upon keeping down tho weeds and keep
' ing tho ground open and mellow. AVo
charge our readers to remember that a
turnip-plant within two or thrco or six
Inches of another is Just as much a weed
as a mullein or ragweed. It is no placo
fornny plant where it will interfere with
the full development of a moro valuably
ono. Turnips never ought to stand
nearer than eight inches apart, ten or
twelve on an averogo in field culturo is
about right. Thoso which being crowd
ed uro checked in their growth do not
yield nearly so much per aero, und they
. aro stronger in flavor and moro pithy
in texture. ,
Cooking Kgg Plants.
"L. M. II." and others ask how to
cook tho egg plant, or rntner egg fruit. !
Slice tho fruit half an inch or moro thick,
peel and place for an hour or so in wilt
nnd water; then drain and dip in thin
bitter, or preferably In egg, and then In
pounded cracker, and fry brown. Tliey
aro sometimes fried without batter or
egg; but then they soak up fat, nnd be
come too greasy. Tho rind is bome
tlrnos left on to mako the pieces hold
together, but when they aro covered as
above thto Is not nece&Miry, There may
bo other ways of cooking thU fruit, hut
tho abovo is the only ono wo havo tried,
and U good cnoigi.Agrlculturlst.
lUnllng Ilnttles for Fruit.
"Soiiscitinr.it," of Columbus, Now
Jersey, writes that sho washes and

In tho oven until too hot to handle
without a cloth. As wanted they uro
taken out, set on a warm board) and tho
hot fruit poured in. In this way she

FOR YOUTHFUL READERS.
The Unlucky Illoiv,
" Subdued and sorrowful as lie looks,
yo would never bellovo ho had been
guilty of tho crimo of murder."
" Of murder V" exclaimed Harry and
myself in a breath.
"Ay I of murder," paid tho old sex
ton In deep sonorous tones, as ho leaned
on ids spado; "his fair face and blue
eyes, as sweet for all tho world as an lu
noccnt baby's, bello tho dark passions
that, may bo, aro wholly subdued now;
wo don't know God help us all we're
a weak egt at tho best."
" But whom did ho murder, and why
Is ho at liberty?" I asked, fixing my
oyo on tho old sun-dial that stood by a
time-polished and broken gravestone;
for Its shadow had glided to my feet;
tho sun was red In its going down, and
1 had an engagement at six.
" Oil 1 I'm no story-teller," continued
tho little shrivelled figure, beginning to
fill up tho gravo beforo him, " but 1
reckon 1'vo mentioned that ciroum
staneo of Dick's unlucky blow twlc't as
many times ns I am years old, and
that's slxty-flvo to-day pretty smart,

lug over his shoulder at us ; " never lost

" But about the murder I" I exclaim
" Well, gentlemen, Dick was born
hero, and was a boy of uncommon
parts; everybody prophesied he'd lie
somebody, und thero's no question but he
might if he'd known how to govern his
temper; dreadful temper, sir, whlto ns
asiies strong as a non rnviir, nivjjyj
when ho was mad. You see Dick had
a brother, and a mother, and a yes,
yes, Betsey must ha' been allvo then
and a sister ; but this brother ol liis'n
one o' these cross-grained lads you know
tricky, too a torment and aplaguoho
was; however, that wan't no reason 1
always said no good reason for such
violence. Well, Dick took tho head like
of tho family, and his mother was a sort
of speritual crceter, a little too good and
gentle for this world such pcoplo al
ways havo tho luck of it in pesky bad
children she, poor thing, never could
take rulo after tho old man was put
down hero, and I sposotho younger boy
would havo rode rough shod overall of
'em if it hadn't been for Dick ; but then
ho might havo dono just as much good
with Biblo means, ' soft answers,' you
now them's my doctrine. Often lias
tho widow como running to me; I lived
next door and begged mo to separato
tho youngsters, and I tell you, some
times Iko took hard rubbin's! Well,
Dick was generally ashamed of himself
J when he'd got a littlo cooled, but then
no would stan' to it that no couldn't
help his temper. Sheer nonsense, sir;
a man can govern himself if lie's a
mind to ; a will always makes a way,
" One morning tho poor widow camo
flying up my yard, and without waiting
to knock rushed Into tho house, crying
and taking on ; sho was begging mo for
God's sako to go in or Dick would ccr
tainly kill his brother. I heard the
rumpus, for Ike never spared liis voice ;
I pitied tho poor witlow, so 1 followed
her. When I got in there Iko looked
bad I won't deny I felt riled to see
him, with his faco all blood, and Dick
standing ready to glvo another blow, his
teeth set and his faco liko dead. I be
gan to talk to him, and Ike tried to ex
plain. '"Don't you say another word, you
young villain, don't you daro speak,'
"With that Ike, taking courago be
cause I was nigh, you seo called him n

were tussling again ; tho poor mother

"'Stand oft, mother,' said Dick, and
his voice was Jest liko a yell, ' stand oil",
or I'll strike you ;' but sho throw her
self on them tho harder, and what do
you think, sirs?"
"Did ho strike her ?"
"Alii and it was her death-blow; I

yonder a fortnight afterward."
"And what did thoy do with hlmt"
"Tried him for manslaughter, and
imprisoned him for ten years. But, la!
sirs, ho was a wreck, soul and body, tho
very day after. Good laming, too, as
over a eollegc-bred boy had; it como
naturally would ha' been a judge to
day, liko as not. Ah I this temper has
blasted many a lino fellow. His sister,
a delicate thing, mourned herself to
death, and Iko took to tho seas. Dick
liked a young woman about that time,
and I rather think sho liked him pretty
well. Somo 6ays thoy wero engaged ; I
dont't know about that. At any rato,

A terrlblo groan broke tho btllluess of
tho old church-yard. Wo wero nil
startled, and I confess to somo fear as I
turned slowly round. There sitting, or
half-reclining on a gray, moss-covered
tomb, his eyes wild and staring, looking
out from under his shaggy eyebrows, us
his head drooped upon his bo.-.om, sat tho
unhappy creaturo whom wo hod noticed
for ids atnlablo but melancholy face,
lie secined to bo fainting, and I hurried
toward him. JIN long fair halrstreain
ed over his face, that with his great
grief had groVlfci prematurely old ; his
WyiA worked nervously, and tho heavy
moisture stood on his forehead; while
his breath came with a hurried guspJ
through his thin nerveless Hps. I can
nover forget his glance, ns with my
companion I drew near him, and strove
to lift him from his recumbent poturo.
llth a voice hollow as tho gravo ho
muttered, " Don't touch me, sir, don't
touch mo;" then lifting up both his
long, lank hands, turned outward, ho
hollowly exclaimed, " Oh, mother, If I
did kill you, God knows I loved you!"
Then, sinking hands nnd head again,
his voleo faded into a whisper, ns hu
slowly articulated, "But you aro in

worked hard to repress tho coining tears
Tho sun had nlmost gone down ; n rich
ilush of intcuo brilliancy crimsoned
tho Western sky; tho old grave-yard
was wrapped in tho mellow radiance;
anil tho bowed and high brow of tho
poor penitent, seamed us it was with
many a line of sorrow, had caught a re
flection of tho dying glory, nnd looked
almost radiant as tho red light played
among its shadows.
Again tho man's faco was turned
heavenward ; it was more ghastly hi its
expression. Again ills hands wero lift

In another instant ho had fallen heavl
ly backward ; his tall form spanned tho
gray tomb-top, and ills head hung mo
