FRIDAY EVENING, JANUARY 9, 1880.
The 6:28 Train.
It was duriug the reign of the geed
Caliph, when Abou Tamerlik came te
the city of Bagdad, threw his gripsack
en the counter, and, as he registered,
spoke cheerfully unto the clerk, say
"A sample room en the first fleer, and
send my keystcr up right away, and call
me for the 0:28 train east in the morn
ing." And Basler el Jab, the clerk, looked at
him, but went away te the mirror and
gazed at his new diamond.
And Abou Tamerlik hied him forth and
went into the booths and bazaars and laid
held upon the merchants, and enticed them
into his room, and spread out his samples,
and besought them te buy. And when
night was come he slept. Because, he
said, it is a dead town, and there is no
place te go.
And, before the second watch of the
night, Rhumel cm Uhp, the porter, smote
en the panels of the deer and cried
"Oh, Abou Tamerlik, arise and dress,
for it is train time."
And Abou arose, and girt his raiment
about him, and hastened down stairs, aud
crept into the 'bus.
And he marveled that he was se sleepy,
because he knew be went te bed exceed
ingly early, and marvcleusly sober.
And when he get te the depot, le ! it
was the mail west, and it was 10:23 p. m.
And Abou Tamerlik swore and reached
for the porter that he might smite him,
and said unto him :
' Carry me back te my own room, and
sec that thou call me at 6:23 a. m, or thou
And ere he had been asleep even until
the midnight watch, Khumul em Uhp
smote again upon the panel of his deer anil
cried aloud :
" Awake, Abou Tamerlik, for the time
waneth, and the train staycth for no man.
Awake and haste, for slumber overtook
thy servant, and the way is long and the
'bus gene !"'
And Abou Tamerlik rose and dressed
and girded up his loins, and set forth with
great speed, for his heart was anxious.
Nevertheless, he gave Khumel em Uhp a
quarter, and made him carry his grip, aud
he curbed him for a driveling laggard.
And, when he was come te the train, it
was 11:40 p. m., and it was a way freight
And Abou Tamerlik fell upon Ithumcl
em Uhp, and smote him, and treated him
roughly, and said :
' O, pale-gray ass of all asses, the
prophet pity thee if thou callest me euce
mere before the 0:28 a. m. train east.''
And he get him into his bed.
New, when sleep fell heavily upon Abou
Tamerlik, for he was sere discouraged,
Rhumel em Uhp kicked fiercely against
th panels of his deer, and said :
"O, Abou Tamerlik, the drummah,
awake and dress with all speed. It is night
in the valleys, but the day star shines en
the mountains. Truly the train is even
new due at the depot, but the 'bus is in
And Abou Tamerlik, the drummah,
swore himself awake anil put en his robes,
and hastened te the depot, while Rhumel
em Uhp, the porter, went before with a
Fer it was pitch dark and raining like a
And when they reached the depot it was
a gravel train going west and the clock in
the steeple tolled 2 a. in.
And Abou Tamerlik fell upon Rhumel
cm Uhp, the porter, and beat him all the
way home, and pelted him with mud, and
broke his lantern, and cursed him, and he
get him into bed and slept.
New, when Abou Tamerlik awoke the
sun was high, and the noise of the street
car rattledin the street. And his heart
smote him, and he went down stairs, and
the clerk said te him :
"O, Abou Tamerlik, live in peace. It
is tee late for breakfast and tee early for
dinner ; nevertheless, it won't make any
difference in the bill."
And Abou Tamerlik, the drummah,
sought Rhumel em Uph, the porter, and
caught him by the beard, and said unto
"O, chuck cl edded pup! which is
'Theu that sleepest at train-time' why
hast thou forgotten me'."'
And Rhumel em Uhp was angry, and
" O, Abou Tamerlik, the drummah,
hasty in .speech and slew te think, where
fore sheuhlst thou get up at daybreak;
when there is another train gees the same
way te-morrow morning ?"
But Abou Tamerlik would net hearken
unto him, but paid his bill and hired a
team and a man te take him te the next
town. And be hired the team at the livery
stable and he cursed the house that he put

" New, then, who is the plaintiff in this
case ?" asked his honor, in Justice alley,
yesterday, as a case was called.
" I ask who is the plaintiff in this case ?'
continued the court.
" I don't knew anything about plain
tiffs," replied a man in the corner, as he
slowly rose, "but if you are looking for the
chap who was chased a mile and a half and
then mopped all ever his own barnyard by
two desperadoes, I'm your man?"
The case went en.
Three for Twenty-live.
After a Griswold street barber had fin
ished shaving a stranger yesterday the man
asked what the charge was, and when told
that it was ten cents, he asked :
"Don't you have any wholesale rates?
Wouldn't you give me three shaves for
twenty-five cents ?"
"Yes, I reckon I could de that,"
"Then go ahead and shave me twice
mere ! " said the stranger as he climbed
back into the chair.
The barber lathered, shaved, lecembed
his hair and cried, "brush" and the man
reseated himself and took a third shave
without a word. His face had a lobster
color when he get through, but he handed
out a nuattcr aud said :
"I don't knew but it would have been
better te take seven shaves for a half dol
lar, but this will de just new."
A citizen who was preparing te take the
war-path against small game yesterday
asked permission te leave his shotgun in a
Griswold street tobacco stoic for a short
" Yes, of course," replied the tobacco
nist, " but I have a fear of such things and
I want you te be sure it won'tge oft"."
The owner took the caps off, steed the
gun in a corner, and said :
"If the gun gees off I'll buy you about a
He was absent about an hour and re
turned te find his gun gene.
" Iteld you se,"' said the tobacconist
"I knew it would go off."
" Yes, it did."
"Why, bow could it?"
" Constable took it off en levy!" was
the calm reply.
Such was the fact, and the irate owner
went off after the ether offs, swearing
that he would knock some one's head off.
Net Her Motte.
A Woodward avenue policeman was,
the ether day, halted near the City hall by
a two-huudrcd-peund woman with a par
cel in her hand, and she requested te be
directed te the store where they sold mot
toes. He asked which particular store
she wanted, and she explained :
" Well, I can't tell. My old man came
te town yesterday, and I wanted him te
buy the motto of " Ged Bless Our Heme.'
He get iu somewhere where they told him
that stylish folks no longer hung up that
motto, and the old idiot went and brought
home this one." '
She unrolled the parcel and held up a
catd en which was tastily painted :
"Don't ask for credit Our terms are
"Yeu needn't grin," she said as she
rolled up the card again ; " I'm heavy en

II U Sentiments.
On a Grand River car the ether day, a
lady suddenly discovered that she had lest
her purse. The ether passengers con
sisted of an old man and six women.
Three of the women chuckled at the less,
two whispered te each ether that they
didu't believe it aud the sixth looked
around en the lloer with eager eyes. The
old man's sympathies were areuml from
the first, and he asked ;
" Did your wallet contain any money?"
" Of course it did !" she sharply re
plied. " Did it also contain a photograph of
your deceased husband aud ether relics of
no value te anyone but the owner?"
" Ne, sir ! 3Iy husband is net dead ! I
had ever $8 in the purse."
"Over 8 and winter right at our
doers?" he mused. " Were you carrying
this wallet in your iu your pocket?"
" Yes, sir."
" Did you step in any tobacco store down
She gave him a blast with her eyes and
refused te answer.
" Because," he went en, " I alius lese

I don't think you will ever see your lest
wealth again. Have I your permission te
take up a collection en this car for your

however, force me te say : I sympathize
with the bereaved in her less. That's
Then he sat down.
The Economy of a Harden.
It is a common opinion among farmers
that a garden for vegetables and small
fruits is a costly luxury. It is a luxury
which they would like te pesess, but the
constant thought that they can make
money faster by working in the field pre
vents them from giving mere than a sec
ondary attention te the garden. It is ne
glected as a matter of course, becomes in
fested with large weeds, which arc difficult
te clear out and the whole thing results as
a failure. The owner is discouraged ; he
has found the garden a source of cost and
difficulty, and he concludes that it is nec
essarily a very troublesome piece of ground
There are two causes for this unfavor
able result. One is that the garden is left
untilled and unhecd in the press of ether
work until the weeds become se large that
a ten-fold increase of labor is required te
work it. Had it been taken promptly in
hand, and the weeds destroyed before they
came up by quickly passing the hoe or
steel rake ever the surface, the labor
would have been comparatively trilling
and the growing crops would have been
clean and vigorous in growth. The twenty-acre
field of corn and potatoes should
have given way te the half-acre of peas
and lettuce, parsnips and spinach, cauli
flower and asparagus, beets and onions,
cabbages and cucumbers, tomatoes and
squashes, melons and berries. The small
half-acre would have been readily attended
te ; the twenty-acre field could have taken
the second chance.
The ether cause of failure is in laying
out the garden se as te require much hand
labor instead of doing nearly all with a
horse. The ground selected should be
long and narrow, se that when the long
drills f vegetables are planted they aie
worked by running lengthwise with the
garden and thus obviating frequent turn
ing. A strip of ground in grass, ten or
twelve feet wide at the ends, admits the
easy turning of the horse. Or the kitchen
garden may occupy a portion of an open
field with limited room at the ends for that
Having arranged the ground in this
manner, plow deeply aud repeatedly and
manure highly and in advance. Tlii, with
moderate annual applications late in
autumn or in winter, will keep the ground
always in geed condition. Sew seeds or
set out plants in lines extending lengthwise
about two and a half feet apart. Smaller
kinds may be in double drills. With nar
row cultivators and one-horse harrows a
few inches less may answer ; but a dis
tance of thirty inches will net be a waste
of ground for most vegetables, for the rich
soil, frequent and clean horse culture and
greater room will give the plant such lux
uriant growth as they never could have in
a mere crowded space and with occasional
and feeble hand hoeing.
New, examine the expense of such a
garden by a fair estimate. Begin with the
small fruits and take raspberries as an ex
ample. Wc may make the estimate for an
acre, and then reduce it te a family sup
ply. The plants may be secured by a little
care in advance, and the small rooted ones
be set out in autumu, each protected
through winter with a feikful of manure ;
or they may be taken up if near at hand,
when green and growing, early the next
season and in cither case will afford crops
of berries in a year or two. The cost of
planting will be scarcely mere than for an
equal aiea of potatoes ; and as this
planting will net be repeated for several
years, it will be fair te offset any ad
ditional labor en the raspberries uutil well
in bearing, against the annual work of
planting the potatoes. The yearly culture
by a horse will be quite as easy as te culti
vate potatoes or corn. A moderate esti
mate of the raspberry crop is fifty bushels
per acre say one-third the potato crop,
and equal te the corn crop. Let us ask any
fanner if a bushel of raspberries,
distributed at the rate of two or three
quarts a day en the table, would uet
be really worth, iu money value, in
providing for his family, mere than
a bushel of corn ? Again, take the straw-
berrylcrep. By horse culture, a bushel of
straweernes may ue raiseu aoeut as
cheaply as a bushel of potatoes. Would
net the roots and the berries combined be
worth mere as daily feed than nothing
but a dish of potatoes te eat ? The same
reasoning will apply te many of the vege
tables. The full supply of these, in con
nection with ether feed, would save the
cost of manj- grocers' bills.
But there is still another way in which
these supplies would preve of positive
financial econemv. A daily portion of fresh
fruit, with ether feed, contributes te
health, and often prevents fermidiable dis
ease. We have known a number of in
stances where the diseases of malarial re
gions have been entirely excluded from
families by a rcgulnr"provisien of fresh
fruit, while its absence in ether families had
resulted in leng-cantinued sickness. Iu
one case a family.meving into a newly-
settled region took with them enough dried
fruit for daily use through" the season.
All the members continued iu health.
The next year, their supply being gene,
several were taken down with intermittent
fevers. The less of time in sickness is a
serious matter ; the fatigue of waiting en
the sick is undersirable ; costly doctors'
bills cut sharply into the farmer's revenue.
In'conclusien", then, for the sake of sav
ing expense, preserving the health of the
family, and providing a full share of the
comforts and luxuries et the table, prepare
and plant a garden that may be cultivated
with a horse as often as once a week the
season through, and let the small needed
care be first and net the last thing en the
list of farm operations.
Treated by Correspondents or the Country
My hen-house is net a model, but has
nests and roosts all iu one apartment. I
was always troubled in having the fowls
roost upon the front of the nests instead of
going en the poles, until I made the top of
the front beard semi-circular instead of
straight. It had no hindrance for the hens
going en te lay, but as they are net se apt
te be standing long en the edge, they arc
less liable te learn te eat eggs. Te keep
poultry free from lice, and their legs free
from scab, I think it is a geed plan te
paint the roosts a lew times during winter
(before the time for saving eggs for set
ting commences) with a mixture of sul
phur and grease. Dry sulphur may be
sifted into a sitting hen's feathers with
The Early Durham somewhat resembles
Early Rese in appearance, but is se decid
edly lighter colored as te make it entirely
distinct. There have been a geed many
seedliugs of the Early Rese which se
closely lcsemblc their parent as with diffi
culty te be kept distiuct. Such varieties
have generally disappointed expectation,
showing a tendency te "run out" sooner
than kinds which have characteristics
mere distinctly marked. The Durham, be
sides being different in color, is fully two
weeks earlier than the Rese, and is a mere
vigorous and prolific variety. Last year.
when most fields of Early Rese had many
blighted hills, the Durham ripened with
out blight, and gave a considerably larger
yield, with an otherwise equal chance.
The Durham is fully as geed as the Rese,
and for early use is much better, as it
cooks dry and mealy as seen as fully
grown, net requiring time te ripen, as the
Rese does. It premises te be the best po
tato for the very early market.
Far greater care is necessary in
the planting of this bean than any
ether. If planted directly preceding a
shower, or until the ground has afterward
dried off, the bean will be likely te suffer.
It is best te plant an extra drill, with the
beans a feet apart, and transplant these
with a spade, inserted below all roots, te
supply vacancies in the regular patch, and
te replace every defective bean plant, and
two poles te a hill. I never plant less
than 5 feet in long, single row east and
west. I use only the largest sort of true
Lima beans. Poles must be 0 feet in
height. I pinch off the runners as they
reach the tops of poles, aud also the side
runuers a feet away from the pole. It is
no easy task te keep the runners back, but
the increased yield pays. I gather the
pods when well filled, above what may be
required green, and dry ; they are much
better for winter use than if allowed te
ripen. I doubt if mere than a small yield
can be obtained without the use of poles.
Destroying Canada Thistles.
I have found that land rich enough te
produce two crops of grass each season is
seldom troubled with pests or bad weeds.
The thick set of grass, and the twice cut
ting, will seen destroy them. I once had
a piece of moist mewing land which was
badly overgrown with willows, which
mewing only once each year with the hay
seemed te strengthen. I decided te de
stroy them if I could by digging them out,
but I could net get all the small roots,
and it left large holes which I had te fill.
Se I top-dressed the remaining part of the
field heavily with manure, aud in two
years there were no mere willows. Seme
of my neighbors have done the same with
like success. I think, that it is the twice
cutting they arc sure te yet en rich land
seeded for meadow that destroys them.
The value of unleaclied ashes depends
largely en the amount of potash naturally
found in the soil. Seme soils, especially
clays, contain apparently enough potash,
and the addition of mere benefits the soil
and crops only by setting loose a larger
quantity of ether mineral elements locked
up in the soil. Sandy gravelly loams are
most apt te be benefited by mere potash.
D. should experiment with potash and learn
its effects. If he finds that his land needs
mere potash he can probably afford te pay
10 cents per bushel for hard weed ashes, if
he can get them readily. There is enough
value in leached ahes te pay for drawing
en sandy loams.
Leng Manure en Meadows.
I have for many years drawn cearse ma
nure en meadows, or any ether land I
wished te enrich, but never put en se large
a quantity of long and unretted straw as
last winter. We hauled all made prier te
April first at any convenient time during
winter. In the spring it was thoroughly
harrowed in all directions. The field was
net all covered, and in harrowing, some of
the straw was drawn en the unmanured
parts. A revolving harrow is the best for
this use, and patience is required in the
oieratieu. There was no trouble in mow mew
ing with machine, and none in gathering
the hay with revolving rake. Seme straw
was picked up with the steel teeth rake.
