Origin of Game Fowls.
Frem an English Publication.
Great Britain it the only country in
Europe which possesses the Game fowl.
India and its islands' are probably the
original countries of the Game fowl, and
still possess it. Game fowls arc also te be
found in Spanish America, probably im
ported thither from Manilla, in the
Philippine Islands. Persia and Asia
Miner, or Syria, once had them, and the
ancient Greeks and Remans were famous
for their Game fowls. It is likewise said
that the Remans introduced them into Eng
land. AVith the ancient Greeks the island
of Rhedus was famous for its Red Game
fowls, which were called Rhediau Reds,
and the island of Deles for its Silver Greys,
which were called Dcles Silrers. Seme as
sert that Game fowls were indigenous te
tne tsritisu islands, and some can tnem a
Reman importation ; but it is strange that
if a Reman importation, Great Britain
alone, of all the Reman European colonies,
should have retained them. This would
rather prove that they were natives of the
British Islands, though they certainly rath
er have the appearance of a tropical or In
dian origin. However, they have prob
ably been in England since its occupation
by the Remans.
"It has been asserted that the Gallus
hankita was the progenitor of the Game
fowl. I incline te te the belief that the
three original colors of the Game fowls
were these of the wild original birds which
had been reclaimed from a state of nature
at some very early period, perhaps in
India. The Gallus btuikica is net lierce
enough, or strong enough, te have been
the original of our Game breeds, though
Bankivas resemble the Black-breasted Red
Games. They were no doubt the originals
from which sprung our Bantams, Game
Bantams being very like them, espec
ially the Black-breasted Red, though the
Bantams are a little smaller than the
Bankivas. The Gallus sennerutus, or
Indian Jungle fowl, has been mentioned
as the original of the Game ; but in this
breed the hen has neither the comb or the
wattles, aud the cock has the peculiar
horny structure of the feathers, which
show them net te have been the parent
stock of our Game breeds, though they
are fierce and spirited birds and used for
ceek-iij'hting by the natives of the East
Indies. The wild Gallus furcalux, or fork
tailed cock, thoroughly resembles our blue
legged Red Dun Game, having the blue
legs aud blue-dun breast and tail, and is
red in the plumage ; but the comb in this
species is net serrated or lobed, and it has
only a single wattle, and therefore differs
rather tee much.
Game fowls may probably have sprung
from the mixture of all the three breeds
named with their own tnree original wild
colors, as many geed naturalists believe
them te have done. I think, however,
that the characteristics differ rather tee
much, and adhere te the belief that the or
iginal colors, which arc still te be met
with in India as well as in Britain, were
derived from birds reclaimed from the
wild state in India or elsewhere at an
early period. Most India game fowls aie
yellow-legged, but net all. The specimens
lately exhibited by the late Mr. B. P.
Brent appeared te be the true Indian
Game. I have already stated that
some breeders consider the Grey
Game fowls te ba a primitive or origi
nal color, but brown of various shades
is certainly the eriinnal color in Game
hens, and assimilates best with the color
of the earth, the foliage and bark of trees,
and every natural object which gray does
net. Gtay is the wild color for our sea
birds, as brown is for land birds ; and
most geed judges condemn gray as the
original color, and agree that the brown
hens of dill'crent shades, and their red
cocks with the greenish-dark tails, are the
only true originals. The grays, tee,
always incline much te breed back te the
brown hens and red cocks, which shows
that these are certainly the tme original
colors ; and gray is often ditlicttlt te pro
duce, as in the Game Bantam breeds. Gray
is therefore most certainly net an ei iginal
color, as some still erroneously suppose
and assert."
A Profitable Farm.
Special correspondence of Public Ledger.
Farming, as a general thing, is net con
sidered a very profitable employment,
nor de farmers in many sections of the
state retire upon fortunes made by tilling
the soil ; but there arc some farmers who
accumulate a geed deal of money by pro
ducing a variety of articles which years
age were net considered a part of their
business. A visit te the farm of Mr.
Christopher Shearer, live miles north of
Reading, gave me a geed idea of pro
gress. This farm contains 100 acres, and
has upon it an orchard of Bat tlctt pears
which occupies 10 acres ; there arc also
10 acres iu peaches and apples, and
another apple orchard which occupies 18
acres of land. Frem 10 te 20 acres are
planted in potatoes, rye, strawberries,
artichokes, willow trees for baskets, and
a nursery of peach trees. There is also a
large pond for gathering ice, te supply an
immense refrigerator, in which the fruit is
stored and kept until the market is favor
able for its sale.
The crops gathered this year were 1000
bushels of pears, which sold en an average
et $2 per bushel; the peach orchard,
which is quite young, produced 400 bas
kets, which sold for $1 er basket. Frem
the apple there were picked 2000 bushels,
which sold from $1 te 1.30 per bushel.
The apples that fell from the trees, and
these net considered worth sending te
market, were sent te the cider press, and
from them 200 barrels of juice were
obtained, which is new in large vats, te
remain until it becomes vinegar, selling at
13 cents per gallon. The patch of tobacco
yielded from 1300 te 2000 pounds per acre,
and sold at 15 cents per pound. In addi
tion te this, 2,000,000 of tobacco plants
were sold at SI per 1000 ; 1200 bushels f
Jerusalem artichokes were raised, for the
purpose of feeding cattle, but most of
them were sold in Xew Yerk, at
from 62.30 te $3 per barrel,
for pickling purposes, most of
them being used in restaurants and bar
rooms as appetizers or for lunch. The sale
of willows produced $100 this year, anrl
from the nursery $300 was obtained by the
sale of young peach and apple trees. Last
spring four acres were planted in straw
berries, and it is expected that next year
at least 10,000 quarts will be gathered.
Notwithstanding the long dry spell in this
section of the state, grapes enough wete
gathered te make 600 gallons of wine,
which readily sells for $1 per gallon. Mr.
Shearer also purchased grapes enough
from his neighbors te make 500 gallons
mere. On the ethc. -crtiens of the land
there were gathered ;2 tens of hay, 400
bushels of potatoes, and 250 bushels of rye.
There was also sold $200 worth of ice, the
pond yielding mere than was necessary
for supplying the refrigerator, and $200
was received from ether farmers for stor
ing fruit. &c, in the ice house. The en
tire cost of farming the land, including
fertilizers, was for the year $4000. The
products amounted te ever $12,000 quite
a respectable profit en 100 acres f land.
Spelling of Shakespeare's Name.
Under the title "Which shall it be
Shaxpere or Shakespeare?" the veteran
Shakespearean scholar, Mr. J. Halliwcll
Phillips has printed for private distribu
tion a small pamphlet, which gees far te
settle the vexed question of the spelling of
Shakespeare s name. .Mr. t urntvall seemed
te many people te stand en solid ground
when he affirmed that the great dramatist
surely knew hew te spell his own name.
His signature occurs three times in his
will, and there it is spelled Shakspere.
What could be mere conclusive ? Happily
for the interests of minute controversy, the
form in which Shakespeare wrote his name
en this occasion is net se conclusive as it
seems. People were net se particular in
the Elizabethan age as they are new about
the spelling of their names, and, if any
thing, had a preference for varying the
spelling, as if te try hew their names
would leek in different forms. Nowadays
Browne would consider it a deliberate and
intentional insult te write his name without
the e, and Smythe would threw a letter into
the fire if it came te him addressed as
plain Smith. But Mr. Halliwell-Phillips
has collected a number of instances te
prove, what he does net point out for the
lirst time, that the men of the seventeenth
century, even of the first families, above
all suspicion of net being able te spell, did
net care for uniformity. Thes. Fuller says
that he has seen the honorable name of Vil
liers written 14 several ways iu their own
evidence, Shakespeare s son-in-law, Dr.
Hall, signed himself indifferently Hawle,
Halle, aud Haulc ; Rowley, the poet, Rou Reu
ley, Rewleye, and Rowley ; Alleycnc, the
actor, Alleyn, Aleyn, Allin, and Allen.
With these and many ether examples te
back him, Mr. Halliwell-Philipps may
well contend that te fellow signatures
would ' revolutionize the system of eaily
nominatienal orthography and lead te pre
posterous results." But what authority
are we te fellow ? We have spoken of Mr.
Ilalliwell-Phillipps's pamphlet as settling
the question, but perhaps we should rather
say that it unsettles the question. He
does net, However, leave us without a
guiding principle. We should spell the
lirst syllable, he thinks, as it is pronounced.
We de net pronounce it "Shax-pere, "
and therefore, should net spell it "Shak
spear. ' It was pronounced "Shakc
spere " by his literary contemporaries, and
se spelled by Ben Jonsen, by the editors
of the first folio of his works, and by him
self or printers under his supervision, iu
two printed letters. People may, there
fore, in defiance of the New Shakspere so
ciety go en spelling it Shakespeare, with
out feeling that they thereby cast upon
the poet the imputation that he did net
knew hew te spell his own name. Londen

As long as we can remember, the ques
tion as te the best floors for horse stables
has been discussed. We have tried clay
and ordinary dirt, but they did net prove
satisfactory. Heles would be dug almost
daily by the forefeet, the urine would
gather there, and unless great care was
taken te till them up aud smooth ever the
soil daily and wash the horses' feet,
scratches, would fellow, and probably
what is commonly called quarter
crack result, which is likely perma
nently te injure the animals. Sand
and even saw dust have been recom
mended, but as they wcre clearly net
desirable, we never tried either. We be
gan with plank-tloering, were dissuaded
from using it, but have returned te it and
found it preferable te the ethers. We
prefer hemlock, a double two-inch plank,
with the front part kept well covered with
straw at all times for the forefeet, and at
nights te be well-bedded with straight rye
straw. We have found no disadvantages
from the Hoeting ; the feet have net suffer
ed se far as wc can discover. Seme ob
ject te the planks, first because they arc
hard, and ethers that they become slip
pery and the horse is liable te fall and
strain himself in gcttiug up ; but,
if we remember rightly, the plank-reads
were net objected te en account of their
hardness or slipperines,s ; and as te slip
pling, if the flooring is a little inclined the
water is carried back, whence a slight gut
ter, also inclining somewhat, either re
moves it from the stable te the outside, Ot
is allowed te pass under the lloer through
small holes in the gutter. But where these
arrangements have net been made, a cov
ering of sifted coal ashes the fleer will pre
vent slipping.
Wc have known floors m stalls te be
made of beards or planks turned up en an
edge, which is about as hard as anything
can be ; also, of flagstones, mortar, and
even of asphaltum, all which we should
suppose might prove injurious te the ani
mal, but we have never heard that they
were. Hemlock planks, laid as we have
mentioned, will prove, take all the circum
stances into consideration, about as satis
factory as anything that can be substituted
and far neater and net mere expensive.
His M'lilimeuts.
On a Grand River car the ether day, a
lady suddenly discovered that she had lest
her purse. The ether passengers consisted
of an old man and six women. Three of
the women chuckled at the less, two whis
pered te each ether that they didn't be
lieve it and the sixth looked around en
the lloer with eager eyes. The old man's
sympathies were aroused from the first,
and he asked :
" Did your wallet contain any money?"
"Of course it did !'' she sharply replied.
"Did it also contain a photograph of
your deceased husband and ether relics of
no value te any one but the owner?"
"Ne, sir! my husband is net dead ! I
had ever $8 in the purse."
"Over $8 and winter right at your
doers!" he mused. " Were you carrying
this wallet in your in your pocket?"
"Yes, sir."
"Did you step iu any tobacco store
down town?"
She gave him a blast with her eyes and
refused te answer.
"Because," he went en, "I alius lese
my wallet in a tobacco store, if anywhere.
I don't think you will ever sec your lest
wealth again. Have I your permission te
take up a collection en this car for your
benefit?"'
"Ne, sir; you will please attend te your
own business !''
"Very well I will? My sentiments,
however, force me te say : I sympathize
with the bereaved in her less. That's
all !"'
Then he sat down.

The State Fruit-Growers' Convention.
As we announced some time age, the
next annual meeting of the Pennsylvania
Fruit-Growers' society will take place at
Bethlehem, commencing en Wednesday,
the 21st of January, and continued en
Thursday. This is a geed point for the
meeting, as it is in the midst of a fine fruit
raising region, where much interest is felt
in the business by many intelligent people.
There will en the forthcoming occasion be
numerous reports made, essays read and
discussions indulged in calculated te show
the importance of fruit-raising, and the
bread opening for its extension. Farmers,
as a body, should augment their fruit-crop
and bestow upon it all the attention
that any ether ciep receives. It will be
shown at the approaching convention hew
profitable it can be made, hew little land
it comparatively requires, hew equally cer
tain it is with ether crops, and hew little
labor is necessary te perfect it, and in all
hew pleasant it is te produce it.

Formerly women never were invited te

Rev. Anna Oliver is still pastor of her
church in Brooklyn. Her congregation is
increasing, and she is paying oft" the
church debt. Her sermons arc of the
practical sort, rather than the doctrinal.
Recently she preached concerning the dig
nity and beauty of self-control, taking for
her text, "He answered nothing.'' The
popular verdict was that the sermon was
one of much power, and particularly te be
commended te Rev. Anna's lady parish parish
eners. Philanthropists in England arc having a
hard time devising employment for desti
tute girls aud women. The trouble ap
pears te be that there is tee much " re
spectability " among the class of needy
females, se much that they would often
rather starve than de kitchen work. They
deserve te starve. One kind of work is
fully as " respectable " as another if it is
well done ; if net well done no kind of
work is respectable. A writer in Mac
Millau's Magazine suggests flower aud veg
etable gardening as a pleasant and piofit piefit
ablc employment for women. He believes
that in such delicate processes as hybridiz
ing, grafting and budding, the skillful fin
gers of women would be of much value.
Here in the West, en farms, as the Hart Hart
eord Courant remarks, the best family veg
etable gardens are these managed by the
women of the household, who likewise de
most of the work. It further observes
that market gardens managed by women
would pay abundantly in the vicinity of
large cities.
