x A liar Harbor Summer.'
Mount Desert upon which island tho
town of Bar Harbor, Mo., is situated,
bas been cut nearly in two by tbo sea,
and tho tides rush into tho Burrow in
let with impetuous force, as if anxious
at every flood to complete its work of
dismemberment. But tho solemn peak
of Mount Desert looks down unmoved
upon tho fretful sea. Tbo mountain
rkes out of tho waters as an emblem
of eternal peace and quietude iu the
midst oi eternal restlessness. It is
this close combination of mountain I
and ocean that makes tho island ot
Mount Desert so inspiring and bo
popular a resort. Bur Harbor, where
tbo summer visitors chiolly gather,
was, until the last decado or two, a
bimple, primitivo village of fishermen,
and even now tbe artificiality of its
cummer life is a mere grafting upon
tho sturdy parent tree. Thero is not
much sea bathing at Bur Harbor. The
surf is too violent and tho water too
..cold and the shore too abrupt for the
favorite pastime of more southerly re
toil?. The duys are pusscd in rowing
ond yachting, and in climbing over,
elifla for the wonderful views of tbe
mouutain and the sea. And these duya
pofs quickly, as does tho Bur Harbor
Bummer. It is inteute und merry
while it lasts, but before the middle, of
September it is deud. In October
icicles begin to form on tho cl ill's, and
Bur Harbor goes to sleep. A goodly
proportion of thote to whom it bus,
extended its bospitulity bavo gono to

American Farmer. .
Tho skunk is ono of tho most nsotul
of animals to tho farmer, and should bo
protected rather than injured. It is
certain that it is not an agreeablo ani
mal, but it is quiet and unobtrusive,
aud meddles with no ono who does not
attack it. It feeds on grubs, worms,
beetles and mice, all of which do moro
damage to tho crops than is thought.
Cutworms and tho whito grubs are
especial dainties to this useful ani
mal, and if one will examine tho corn

of tho skunk's good work will be easi

centuries, doubtless, in Eabtern Tit

stone structures, in which the fodder
was pressed down by many tons of
stone laboriously heaped on a plunk
covering over tho fodder. This was
followed by the present method of
sweet ensilage, effected by permitting
tho ensilage to beat so as to kill tho
germs of decomposition by which the
acid was produced, tho ensilage previ
ously being sour and smelling Iiko a
sour whisky cask. Our present method
seems to be perfect, aud by it any

ALFALFA AND t'LOVEH.
Alfalfa has been grown several years
at the Indiana Experiment titution,
und W. C. Latta, agriculturist of tho
station, speaking from experience,
says that although alfalfa cbd, when
well started, endure drought better
than clover, it cannot produce three
or moro crops thesimo season without
irrigation. This lnlormution is nec
essary to counteract statements made
by some enthusiasts, who may, unm
toutionallv, mislead somo into displac
iug clover with Alfalfa, on account of
the alleged immenso yields of tho lat
ter. At tho station it was'found that al
falfa is moro feeble than clover ,ftt tho
start, and is very liublo to bo choked
by weeds the first season ; that it in
creases in vigor until tho third year at
least, and thus maintains itself better
and longer in tho soil thuu a common
red, mummoth or alsiko clover ; thut
in very dry seasons (liko 18U5) it may
yield more hay thuu clover, that iu
normal reasons it sometimes yields
less thuu clover ; that but two cuttings
of ullullu may bo expected tho eauiu

What It Costs to Make lllcrrlrs.
In a letter to tho Now York Sun tho
Whilo iu nuflulii recently I ran
neros" nn employe of ono of tho bi
cyolo work iu that city. Doing per
sonally known to him, I asked what
waa tho nbsoluto coat of production of
a $100 bigh-grndo wheel. II o began
to figure it out.
"Tho best way to got at It," bo said,
"is to tako tho highest prices paid to
mechanics to produce pertain parts
nutil tho wheel is conipleto and ready
for tho mnrket Taking tho wages
paid tho mon to manufacture all theso
parts, tho absolute cost to tho bosses
to put upon tho market a $100 bigh
grndo whocl is 818.(10. Tho bosses of
the shop whoro I work sell their
wheels to retail dealers for $.r0."
"Now, ns an employe," I nuked,
"what would yon lmvo to pny your
employers for n if 100 wheel?"
"Oh I they pell them to ns for 820,
but wo cannot resell them unless wo
want to got discharged."
"IWt you think a 100 high-grade
whcol can bo pold for 850 with profit
to tho manufacturer and still inniutnin
tho present rato of wages paid me
chanics who mako thorn?"
"Certainly. What is more, sales
would bo increased nlso, nnd moro
men employed to produce them. Tho
big end of tho profits goes to tho re
tail dealers, whereas if tho manufac
turers bad thoir own selling agents
they could well afford to sell $Ullt
wheels for $50, yoi, nnd 810, with
good, profit. They pny low wages.
Thoir routs nro small, tho shops boing
generally located iu country places.
Asa mechanic, I know tho parts of a
wheel aro not nearly so intricate or
dolicato in mechanism ns those of a
sewing machiuo, yet I am told by
brother mechanics who make sewing
machines thnt it costs but $11.75 to
produco a $00 tunehino for tho mar
ket. To produco an $80 bicycle, wo
flguro it out in tho shop that tlio almo
in to cost of manufacture is but a tritjo
over $10. Of cotirso, when ns a work
man on bicycles I givo you tho cost of
their production to our bosses, I meau
tho cost of their munufneturo by tho
hundreds. Tho making of bioyolos is
generally regarded by mocbauics as
tbo simplest kind of mechanical labor,
with loss loss to manufacturers by im-
fierfectly constructed wheels through
ad workmanship than is tho case iu
tho construction of a sowing machiuo
with its finer tnochuuisn)."

If there is nny reason why you shouhl usa

you take it to cure disease ; you want to be cttml
