The skilled workman, whoso moral

noblen typesofour American civilization
Such workmen can be found, nut only in
tho machine shops but on tho farm.
Such nion have not dreamed themselves
into position, but have formed for them
selves characters that are of value and
worth, and their services are always in
domaiid. Tho model hired man is one
who is an early riser; ono who looks af
ter the most trivial matters about tho
firm. If he sees anything that ought to
be done he docs it as soon OS an oppor
tunity occurs. Let it only ho a fence
rail, a plank tl.a,t in wanting, it is ro
placed in its proper position. A great
many little things arc being constantly
?!? nauded of the hired man; but prompt
attention to them is a matter of very
great importance to hus employers,
The working man on the farm should
etiib avrx to take ns much interest in
seeing that everything is done at the
right time, and iu the bent possible way
ar the employer bims If In this way
he will render himself useful?nay, al

Ann Strong was a aid llttlo boaster.
I hough slie ment to speak the truth,
she was so vain nod thoughtless that no
one would believe her.
She always wanted 'a long lossnn.
She would say, "I oan learn it all, it is
it is not too hari for mo;" though when
her class was called out to b* examined,
she was often sent back to hor seat to
If anything woo V be done at .Some
or at school, Ann would always say^ "I
know how, please let me do it;"
even if it was a thing she could n) done
Ann's teacher wished some one to
point to the name of tho cities on a large
nmp, so that all the girls in the clasa
might knew where to fi.id them.
' Oh, let mo do it,"'said Ano,?I kno.*
how as well as can be.'
'Ye?, you may do it," said Miss R*W*
ton: but Ann could not point to a single
name that her teacher called.
'You are liko a silly little pigeon I

'The story,' replied Mis* Eaton, 'ia
that when the pigeon first came in**v
the world, all the other birds came and
offered to sbo^ her how to build*

'The cat bird showed her its nest, all
made of sticks and bark; and the spar-,
row showed her theirs, which were woven
with moss and hair. But the pigeon,
walking about in a very vain way,,
aud turning her head from aide to side,
said: 'I know how; I know how to
build my nest as wel 1 as too best of
ysV&r . ; ? n :
'Then tho black bird showed vis* nett,
which w.ih fastened to some reeds, and
swung over tho watar, and the turtle
dove said hers was easier to build tHtn
all, for it was quite flat and wade only
of sticks laid to together. Hut the pig
?>n turned her pretty head asbofore and
said;'I know how.'
'At list all the birds left" he*. Tfeesj
the pigeon found that she did not know
how at all: and she went without ?

The fallowing recipe is sept us by A
Tait, of Howard oouuty, Kansas. He
thinks it is the best he has ever used,
and it is se simple that any one may
easily try the experiment:
Take about half a gallon of oil, and
put in a shallow pan or basin, and dip
the harness in, one pioco or moro at a
time; then strip the oil off of the strap
with your fiagors, letting it run back
into the basin; hang up to dry; repeat
tlie dipping of the harness two orthree
times until it will take no more oil. A
little lamp black added helps the looks
very much. After the oiling take a rag
and rub off the harness, and yon will final
the hardest loither and tho stiftest lug
have become very pliable and will re
main so from one to three years. You,
may leave thoin out in the rain * doico
times; and you cannot see but they are
us pliable as before the water touched
them. And not only that,but the rata
and mice will ucver touch them. If
they are dirty, it is not necessary to clean
