A Miner's Hat. Ouc nilit, during
the recent troubles ia the Pennsylvania
coal regioui, Judge Potts' brother, Thomas
Potts, was round at a meeting of mine
owners, and alter the adjournment he ttep
Id iu at a tavern. While there he met
some friemls, and in the courso of an hour
he became very intoxicated. On his way
home he lost his h.itf and a miner who
knew him, fccliug compassion fur him,
clapped on his head a miner's hat, aud in
order to make the dark street look brighter
he lighted the little lamp in front of the
hat. When Potts icaibcd his house his
wife had sjn to bed, and the lights were
out, hut Potts telt certain the lamp was
burning in the hall, but he couldn't for the
life of him tell where it was.
He looked at the rcjzolar lamp, aud that
seemed to be out ; tlieu huuttd in every
direction for the light, but ho was unable
to find it, although it seemed to shine
brightly wherever he went. Prcsentlv he
happened to slop in front of the mirror in
tha hat rack, aud then he saw precisely
where the lamp was. After a brief objur
gation upon Mrs. Potts lor leaving the
light in such a preposterous place, he weut
up to the mirror and tried to blow it out.
lie blew and blew, but somehow the llamc
burned as steadly as before.
'That,' said Polls, is the moz cxtra
or'nary lamp's ever been my misfortune to
Then be took off his coat, and, halding it
in front of him, crept cautiously up to the
mirror, Mil tried to crush the coat over the
lamp, which still burned brightly. Jle

It occurred to him Uieu that perhaps he
might smash the lamp with his umbrella.
Seizing the weapon, he went up to the hat
rack, aiming a terrible blow at tho light,
he brought the umbrella dowu. lie missed
and smashed his Sunday bat into chaos.
He took aimagain, and caught the umbrella
in 'the lamp overhead, bringing it down
with a crash. Then he tiied a third time,
and plunged the fers'.c of tbc Umbrella
through the mirror, and smashed it to
atoms ; be felt exultant for a moment, as
the I:;' In disappeared from Lis vukn. but
he was jicrplexed to find lb eta was another

where. So he sat dowu on the slairs, ami

an' yet it's bhiniu' ! Perfec'ly incompres
sible. Wish 1' gracious Mrs. Poods wake
up an' 'spkin it Durn 'f I know what I
had better do.'
Then Potts took off his hat to scrath his
head, in the hope that he might scar up
au idea, and the truth flashed upon him.
Gazing at the lamp for a roomcut, until be
dm ok in a full conception of the trouble it
had caused him, lie suddenly smashed it
down on the floor in a rage aud extinguish
ed it, after covering two yards of carpet
with grease. Then he went to bed, aad in
the murning Mrs. Potts informed hita that
sums of those awful miners had broken
into tho bouse the night before, aud left
one of their hats with a lamp. Potts
turned over in bed so that she could not
see his face, and said if the stern hand
of tha law wasn't laid upon those ruffians
soon noboMj's life would be safe.
A New Capitalist. lie didn't look as
if his pockets held fifty ceuts, hot a rich
man Las a right to dress m b chooses.
He loaied np Griswold street until be saw
the liphl sort of face, and then asked:
Can you show me a bank ?'
Ves, sir; three doors below, or Just
across the street, or right back there.'
'Thanks. I'd like to put some money
in 6ome bank, but I'm a little afraid of
banks. I always did prefer a note of hand
to a bank.'
The citizen pricked ut his ears and ask
ed : 'You have some money to lend, have
you ?' . , .
A trifle,' was the auswer. Do yon
know of auybody who'd like to take some
aud give me a note for a year at seven per
cent. ? I think of going to Mexico for a
while. - -
'ljbl' see ?' tuuebed the eitizen, 'I don't
know but I'd take some myself.1
'Imoii git a drink and then we'll talk,'
said the stranger.
Yes, certainly ; como aa,' replied the
citizen, and the two went into a basement.
Drinks were ordered by the citizen, one
alter another, until his shinplasters fslt
louelj. He said he could sake good use
of a few thousand dollars for a year, and
some of his friends might also take a thoa
eand more. The stranger put down gin,
whUkey, lager aud brandy until his logs
gave out. The citizfn laid him on a bench
and tried to sober him, but the fellow went
dead asleep while they were irying te force
vinegar down his throat. The bar-keeper
said he was au old loafer, and a policeman
was sent for to take him to the station
house. 'When they got hiia down there
aud searched bim, they found four cents,
a brass-backed comb, and a doorkey in
his pocket, and the citizen who wanted to
borrow a few thousand dollars went to see
if the mail had come in.

Mascres in thb Gakden. A writer in Root's
Garden 2Ianuel,taya : "Generally, I know of no'
objection to fresh manure, except that if applied
heavily they trouble iu fitting the ground for line,
seeds. On the contrary, I have always noticed
very good effects from Ihe use ef long manures,
and advise piling manure only when uo ground is
prepared to reeciv it. But this period covers a
considerable portion of the year, and much of it
must be spoiled.- : If left thus in warm weather
without further attention, fresh manure iiX""

as it can be applied to the surfaea when t

Leached ashes have an especial value on sandy
soils, and produce most etfect upon onions, po
tatoes, coru, and the root crops. Their value is
lastinir, and the effect of a liberal aDolication

For all garden crops they are valuable ; potatoes,

Lime is of most value en rich old soils its ef
fect being to unlock and release fertility already

upon poor soil it may sometimes do more harm
than good, but used on rieh old garden soils its
use occasionally will produce astonbhing re
sults. Super-phosphate of lime produces a very quick
effect, and besides the fertility it adds to a soil.

Iu the garden land plaster Is exceedingly vari
able in its effects. Some of the most marked be
nefits from its use have been noticed upon vines
during a drought. If applied over the surface
of the hill and vines during a drought so severe
that the leave droop at mid-day, they will, in a
couple of days, show no sli,'ns of drooping, but
exhibit unusual vigor.
Stick to the Fai:m. Within tho last year or
two we can number a half dozen of our farmer
acquaintances who have been lured to financial
deatructioa by the glamour of speculation. And
ifoing back ten years and carefully looking np
tho history of tbe men we know who have left
the farm to engage In trade, we flud that not
one in tea succeed. A recent ease has come to
our knowledge that i foil of instruction to those
who are tempted to leave the farm. By his own
exertions alone the farmer had accumulated a
handsome competence, aud at the age of fifty
could look with pride over his acres of rich land,
his tine herds and flocks and comfortable build
ings. He was out of debt, and bad a handsome
surplus in the bank. Two years ago, in an evil
hour, ho was induced to invest in a dry goods
store. Last fall his farm and stock were sold
for debt, and he reduced to the necessity of day
labor tosuppoit his large and yet dependent
family. All the accumulations of over thirty
years of hard toil many of them years of priva
tion, hardships aud the closes; economy swept
away iu a few months by this demon, specula
tion. And this is not a solitary case. Every
render can count similar ones ia his own list of
acquaintances. They all teach one a great les
sou stick to your legitimate business i-i which
you have succeeded. "Let well enough alone."
A man who has lived all his life on a farm
staads but little chance to compute snccessfally
with the men who have been educated and train
ed for speculative pursuits. The two occupa
tions are extremes bouest toil at one end aud
the tricks of trade at another. If yon have
good farm keep it, improve it, adorn it, be preud
of it, aud when you are done with it hand it
down to your children, the best inheritance, with
a good name aad education, that yon could leave
them. Ohio Former.
Uakkowiso Wheat. The uniform testimony
of all those who have tried harrowing wheat in
the spring is that it pays. One says : "I flud
the result at harvest most satisfactory.. 1 began
the custom by harrowing fifteen acres, or about
one half the n.ual number of acres that I sow.
My neighbors, who had never seen it done. In
sisted that it would kill it out. I shall continue
the practice, as I have now procured a smooth
ing harrow, which, in a great measure, euables
me to dispense with the roller, which I still use,
however, when the early spring is an unusually
dry oue. I thiuk by using the harrow that the
wheat tiilers that is, stools out better than
wheu it is not cultivated in the spring."
Another subscriber writes as follows : 'I find
that harrowing wheat in the spriug pays welt.
It gives the wheat a good start, aDd the harrow
ed portion ripens as early as tbe unharrowed
parts, aud has heavier seeds."
In harrowing wheat cure must be taken that
the soil is sufflcently dry, so that tbe harrow
will pulverize it nicely. In such cases once har
rowing is as advantageous to the wheat crop as
one good working of a field of corn in tbe early
stages of its growth. Experience and judgment
must determine the precise time when this work
should be done. It should not be doue until the
heavy frosts In March are ever, which will, how
ever, depend much upon the season. Rural
Plast tub best Sbkd. Many farmers, no
doubt, wouder how it is wheu they have bought
a new kind of seed (wheat for iustaace) that iu
a few years it has lost lis excellence, and that
they have an opportunity of buying a choice
article, a grain at a high price. The query is,
where does it come from t That "work will
tell" is a safe axiom. Take our advice, whe
your wheat is ripe go over the Held aud hand
pick tbe best heads. Plant this, aud repeat tbc
proce.s every year, aud you will have aa excel
lent se:d wheat for sale. The same will prove
true lu coru, aud in fact every crop. Posibly
the potatoes do not depend so much upon tue
perfective quality of seed planted, but we believe
it is a rule that should never be deviated, to
p hi nt all seeds from the most perftct of their
kind. Experiments have proved that seeds, liko
stock, are improved not by frequent ehacges,.
but by great care in propagating the best.
Si i'ekiou Boiled Ham. Select the leanest
part, aud cut the slice evenly about one-eighth
of an inch. Have ready a bed of nice bright
coal, aud warm the platter over a kettle of boll
lug water ; lay the gridiron over the coals nutil
nearly hot enough to hiss ; then rub it off, lay
on the ham, and boil euickly. It should be
browned a trifle whesait touches the bars of tha
gridiron, so as to look striped. When broiled
both sides, lay It on tbe platter, place a piece of
sweet butter on each slice, and dust on a trifle
of pepper. Serve with mashed potatoes, boiled
eggs, am! grated horseradish. If too salt, it will
be necessary to lay tbe slices in tepid water to
frcsheu, although much of its flavor will be lost
in the freshening. Dessert for fried and boiled
bam, apple or tart pie ; in winter, mince pie.
To Stkw Calf's Head. After It Is boiled
tender, remove all the bone without disfiguring
the bead, season with Cayenne or black pepper,
salt, and, if relished, nutmeg ; most persons not
accustomed to Freuch cookery dislike spices in
meats and Hah. Fry geatly in sweet batter nnlil
slightly browned, then make a gravy of the li
quor enriched with sweet butler, and thickened
very little with floor. In tbe mean time, pre
pare the brains after they are boiled in the fol
lowing manner : Mash and season them with
pepper and salt, or with whatever the head is
seasoned with, beat the yelks of oae or two eggs,
mix them with flour, aud stir them into the
brains ; iucorporala the egg and brain luto ouc
mass, make it lu balls, brown them in butter,
aud serve the balls with tbc head.
