BY ECGEXE FIELD.
Jim was a fisherman-up on the hill
Over the beach lived he an''his wife
In a little house-you kin see it still
An' their two fair boys ; upon my life
Yon never seen two likelier kids,
In spite o' their antics an' tricks an'
Than them two boys !
Jim would go out in his boat on the sea
Jest as the rest on us fishermen did
And when he come back at night thar'd be
Dp to his knees in the surf each kid,
A beck'nin' ?nd cheerin' to fisherman Jim,
He'd hear 'em, you bet, above the
Of the wave3 on the shore.
But one night Jim came sailin' home,
And the little kids were'nt on the sands,
Jim kinder wondered they hadn't ci-me,
And a tremblin' took bolt o' his knees
And he learnt the worst ir on the hill
In the little house, an' he bowed his
"The fever," they said.
'TWSB an awful time for fisherman Jim,
With them darlin's dyin' afore his eyer,
Thev kept a callin' an' beck'nin' him.
For they kind o' wandered in mind
Were about the waves and fisherman J im
And the little boat a sailin' for shore
Till they spoke no more.
Well, asherman Jim lived on and on,
-.* 1 ?tvaH3e?b^t">m - "-chitc-and the SELA*.
But he never smiled, and his heart seemed
And he never was heard to speak thc
Of the little kids who were buried t?tere,
Gp on the hill in sisht o' the ser,
Under a willer tree.
One night they came and told me to hast?
To the house on tho bill, for Jim was
And they said I hadn't no time to waste,
For his tide was obbin' powerful quick,
An' he seemed to be wanarra' and cra'.y
An' a seein' sights he oughtn't to stn -
An' had called for me.
And fisherman Jim, st*, he to me,
" It's my bst, la?t cruise-you under
I'm a-sailin' a dark and dreadful nea,
But ot; on the further Bhcre, on tho sand,
Aro the kids, who*? a-beck'nin' an' catlin'
Tes.- as they did-ah, mate, you know
In the long ago."
Xo, sir ; he wasn't afraid to die,
For all th k night, he seemed to a**
Hia little boys of the years gone by,
And to hear sweet voices forgot by me:
An' just aa the momin' aaa come up
"They're holding me by the bandi !"
An' so he died.
Heating Milk ia Dairies.
Large additions may be made to the
butter yield from a given quantity of
milk by heating the latter. This can
not always be done conveniently in
large dairies, but is practical in small
ones. Let the milk stand twelve hours ;
then by placing on the stove over
pans of boiling water let the tempera
ture roe to about 100 degrees ; next
put it away for twelv.i hours more,
when a . ery solid cream will have
formed. If the milk has absorbed any
unpleasant odors from the barn, or in
any other place, they will be expelled
by this process, and the butter will
retain ita natural aroma. The batter
in churning will come much quicker
if treated by this process than in any
other way. The depth at which the
milk is eet makes no material differ
ence, only if a large bulk of milk is
set in oDe vessel it will require a
longer time to bring it up to a proper
temperature and a longer time to cool
Some dairymen heat the milk im
mediately as it comes from the barn,
br.t by this process there is not near
the quantity of butter obtained as if
allowed to stand twelve hours, and
beside the skim-milk is much superior
in this latter method over that pro
duced by the first named process.
When Mr. Ellsworth, of Barre, was
making his famous skim-cheese he
heated his milk immediately a? it
came from the barn, and there is lit
tle doubt that it was the heating of
the milk and retention of some of the
butter that gav .J such a superiority
to his cheese over any ordinary skim
Heating the milk when it first
comes from the barn appears to have
the effect of coagulating thealbr.men
and thus preventing the butter glob
?Q ales /rom rising. A dairyman within
Ly the range of our acquaintance, who
used to make butter and sell skim
milk, was in the habit of heating the
milk as soon as it came from the barn.
He had a ready sale for his skim-milk
^'^p but when he commenced heating the
milk after it had stood twelve hours,
?jj none of his former customers desired
to purchase any more of his skim-milk.
In large dairies, although more but
ter could be obtained by the practice
7 ?> quired would be no offset for the nmall
extra amount of butter obtained. It
is an experiment which could be easily
tried, and every one could test the
J^-> matter for himself. The beet method
of making gilt edge butter in winter
p is an iinpn-tant question to many
How to Feed Bran.
Bran or ground feed is best fed to
cows upon moistened hav, it being
mixed with the hay all will be eaten
together and raised and masticated.
But if it is not fed with cut hay it
ahould be fed dry andinasmallquau
' tity each time, for if fed alone it ie not
raised aud re-masticaced, but goes on
to the third and fourth stomachs. If
fed in slop it is swallowed without any
mastication, and mixed with little or
no saliva, bat if f??d dry it cannot be
swallowed until ii 3 mixed with saliva,
and the saliva assista in digestion.
When food ?3 masticated the act of
rumination causes tb.9 eaiiva to flow
and mil with food. We have experi
mented, and find that when fed alone
dry ground feed is better digested
^ than when fed wet.-National Live

To Cse Muck Profitably.
Many persons estimate muck too j
highly, aud use it ?lone as manure,
and because it does not produce crops
equal to stable manure they are dis
appointed and condemn it as worth
less. My experience with eome twen
t7-SttVen hundred loads of muck used
on my own farm, with forty years of
observation among hundreds of good J
farmers in different States, convinces j
me that any one having easy access
to muck, who will use it around pig
pens, stable and barnyards as an ab
sorbent, will receive benefits from it
surpassing the average pay the farmer
receives for hia labor. Liquid ma
nures are of equal value with the
solid, and are generally lost where ab
sorbents are neglected. Dried muck
is one of the best absorbents, easy to
handle and peculiarly adapted to hold
the nitrogeu and other gases which
would escape, and being composed of
partially decayed vegetable matter
will, when rotted, become plant food
again. Litter should be used freely
with muck, enough to keep the stock
ciean and comfortable. This hastens
fermentation, and I found, that heat
ing largely incieases the immediate
value. I have experimented with ma
nure!? made in this way applied to a
side manure as commonly made iu
Stahles :md barnyard, and have found
them equally valuable, load for ioad(
and aa durable in results. If on i can
double the bulk and value of his ma
nure by the careful use of muck it is
j worth the erTorts of all who are favor
I ably situated "o do so. It will pay, I
know by experience, and altjthe theo
retical writers in ihe world cannot
weaken my faith.-Correspondence
Pure Bred Stock.
Aa a i nie pure-bred stock is not the
most profitable for farmers to keep.
Many who have tried to breed a herd
of pure blood animals have faiied.
The cost to beg:n with ii large. The
writer recently visited a herd of Jer
sey cattle, some of the cows in which
had CO?L many hundreds ol' dolla: s .
The product in llesh and milk from
theee animals is not so much over thsfc
of the grade cow as to warrant the
prices paid. The management that
such close bred stock requires is much
greater than that of grade stock ; that
is, crosses between the pure blood and
the native stock. Pure blood animals
and herds, like the one above men
tioned, are of value ? breeding cen
tres, from which the great mass of
common stock can be built up. At a
low estimate the value of the grade
product can be raised $15or?20 each,
the first season. It may be that a far
mer with a large herd ol grades thus
produced can alford to keep two or
three pure blond animals for further
improvement of the herd, but in many
oases it will be better to replenish the
pure blood from one of the centres.of
such stock. It ?9 a national blessing
that "fancy farmers/' as they're some
times called, are pleased to make such
large investments in pure blood stock,
for by this means the supply of any
breed is kept up. It would be a ca
lamity il irom any cause these care
fully managed herds should all be
broken up and . cattered. It is through
them that the whole li vs stock of this
country is to be improved by a gradual
process of gradi?g. In this important
work the less fortune-favored stock
raisers may Hud a profitable field of
A High Priced low.
The Ashlaimla Stock Farm, near
Pendleton, has a ?eputation through
out the State for the excellent strains
of cattle kept and raised upon it, but
its high reputation has not prepared
our ppople to receive without wonder
the announcement that a Cow from it
has been sold for eleven hundred dol
hrs. and yet such is the case. Capt,
J. 0. Stribbling last week sold the
beautiful Jersey Cow, " Lilly ol Glen
more,-' (No. 7077.) to Mr. G. B. Tur
ner, of Fairfield, for that sum. Thin?
is, as far as our information extends,
the highest priced Caw ever owned in
thisState, and gives still further repu -
tat:.on to the Ashtabula Farm. Mr.
Stribbling sent us a sample of the but
ter irom this Cow, which was as yel
low as gold and as rich and delicious
as it can possibly be made. It is not
to be wondered that his stock sails
fjr such pricen, when he makes such
excellent butter from them.-Ander
arrho.-i in lambs, suggests that a'sim
ple relaxation of the bc /e's, produced
by fresh grass, a change ol pasture,
aud an allowance of good linseed cake
or other dry food will probably be
sufficient restorative. If not, take of
prepared chalk one ounce, powdered
ginger, two drachma, powdered opium
half a drachm, peppermint water half
a pint, and give two tablespoonfuls of
the cordial twice a day.
Itisstated.that kinds of w ood?, says
the Engineer, although of great dura
bility in themselves, act upon each
other to their mutual destruction. Ex
periments with cypress and walnut
and cypress and cedar prove that they
will rot each other when joined to
gether, but on separation tue rot will
cease and the timbers remain perfect
ly sound for a long period.
X* medical journal cites instances
that where milk that has stood a short
time in the presence of persons- sick
with typhoid lever, or been handled
by parties before fully recovering from
the smallpox, spread these diseases as
effect itally ss if the persons themselves
had been present. Scarlatina, measle?
and other contagious diseases have
been sp;ead in the same way.
When a man has not a good reason
for doing a thing, he has one good na
son for letting it alone.
WB?IINO LOVE LETTERS.-There ?
?no stated rule for writing love-let
ters. You should write on foolscap
paper, and bear on it as soft as you
can, using words of such burning love
that they will sizzle on the point of
the pen. It is also advisable to diing
in a bundi of pathos occasionally
such as, " Dearest Augusta, I love
yon with a love larger than an ele
phant. I think of you every day ;
and by-and by, when the days grow
longer, I shall think o? you twice a
day." It is also well to pat an ink
blot in the corner, with the observa
tion, " Darling, I kissed Lbifl spot," or
" I heave a sigh in this vicinity."
The ice moundsatNiagaraFallsare

Something About thc (.'?ire of Boots
1. Very few people-give Boots or Shoes
proper eire in keeping them well oiled,
etc. Oil is the essential ii IV? <>i" leather,
and no leather, he it over so ;;o:>d, will
wear any length of time unless properly
oiled aud eared for.
2. lt very frequently heppens that
Boots and Shoes are put to a rougher use
than that for which they were intended.
For instance, a mau will put ou alight
Kip or Calf Boot in farm work, or other
hard wear, thinking that beean ne it rost
him more than a stoga, that ?. ought to
give him as much or more wear, while
tho fact is that the Boo! is too light, for
tb? use he is making of it, and cannot
be expected to stand.
Many Boots and Shoes are tun ned
when wei. It is a well established tact
that leather burns much more easily
when wet than when dry. lt does not
burn when we't from actual heat, but
from steam generated in the (?ores of the
leather 1)3* the action of tho heat upon
the water in tho leather, which scalds it.
A burn of this kind seldom shows at
(irs;, but as the leather dries, it immedi
ately cracl.s out where burned, and tho
wearer is pulled to know what is the
matter, and blames rh? maker, when ho
himself is alone at fault.
