Club upon better educated far

is an inability on the part of far

in such a way that the furrow
divides vertically, as it were, in

tends still further, a similar action
takes place, transversely "orhon

The Best Fowls and Why.
A correspondent writes to the
Massachusetts Ploughman as
follows: 1 have noticed a great
many inquiries in ,the Plough
man in regard to which are the.
best variety of fowls for a man to
keep. Tliis depends upon what
kind of a place he has to keep
them and what lie wants them
for. If he Avants fowls to lay a

Hamburgs or Spanish. If he
wants market fowls, why then he
must gettheBrahmas or Cochins.

I keep both and like the Golden
best. They are, very handsome.

believe that twelve hens with a
good run will average nine eggs

will with a warm house, lay near

A Cheap Hard Soap.
Many" housekeepers in the
country know how difficult it is
to obtain a good article of bar
soap. The yellow soap sold at
the stores cuts soft as cheese, and
rubs away as easily, and unless
the housewife buys a box of soap
at a time, and piles it up in stacks
in the attic or"feome dry place, the
yearly record will show a goodly
sum paid out for soap purchased
by the bar. The following recipe
will prove a desirable item of
Fjour largejbars of yellow soap ;
two pounds of sal-soda: three
ounces of borax : one ounce of
liquid ammonia. Shave the soap
in thin slices ; put it into eight
quarts of soft water (rain water is
best). When the soap is nearly
dissolved, add the borax and sal
soda ; .stir till all is melted. Pour
it into a large tub or a shallow
pan; when nearly eool add the
ammonia slowly, mixing it well.
Let it stand a day or two, then
cut it into cakes or bars, and dry
in a warm place. No better soap
can be made to wash white
clothes, calicoes, and flannels;
and it is excellent for all house
hold purposes. It costs but three
cents per pound, and is made in
less than half an hour. This re
cipe has been sold for five dollars,
and will' be of service to every
The Virtue of Borax.
The washer-women of Holland
and Bclgiuni.-j.so. proverbialy
clean, and who get up their linens
so beautifully white, use refined
borax as washing powder, instead
ol soda,, in the proportion of a
large handful of borax powder to
about ten gallons of boiling
water. Thev save in soap nearly
half. All the largo washing
establishments adopt, the' same
mode. For laces, cambrics, it'

therefore it should be kept on the

ury, but an absolute necessity in
every family, and is as cheaply
and easiiy manufactured in the
household as any other article of

depend on buying at the grocer's
and borrowings!' their more for
tunate, neighbors. By a.sunple
process, with little or no expense,
a supply for family use can be
made with far less trouble than
is required to buy or borrow what
is needed. The process is this :
bave all your apple parings, and
slice in with them all -waste ap
ples and other fruits ; keep them
in1 a eool place till you get a pail-
full, then turn a large plate over
them, on which a light weight
should be placed, and pour on
boiling water till it comes, to the,
top. After thev nave stood two
or three days, pour oft" the liquid,

place, the vinegar will bd fit for

Mv'"good housewife" has, by
this method, made during the
fall of thenar, when apples and
other fruits were being dried, a
barrel of excellent vinegar, which
costs nothing but the trouble of
preparing. The parings should
be pressed compactly into a tub
or pail,and, only water, enough

A Mother's Word.
A youth of eighteen or nine
teen years sat at an open window.
a look of painful perplexity on
his face, caused apparently by a
letter he held in his hand. After
sitting thus for some minutes he
muttered to himself. u Yes, I must
go; if I don't Brown and Smith
will be laughing at me, and call
ing me righteous over much;
and, after all, there's no great
harm in it for I'll go to church in
the morning, and it's only to be a
sail down the river and spend the
day in the country." Still he
pressed his hand upon his fore
head for an instant, then, rising
hastily, he, said: "There s no use
bothering about it ; I must go.-'
As he rose, his eye lighted on
the setting sun, and as he did so
his whole expression changed ; a
sweet yet half-sad look played on
his face, his thoughts were else
where, another scene was before
his eyes. The dark street had dis
appeared, and in its stead a neat
country cottage had risen, in
thought he was there ; once more
he saw the hills that rose near
that cottage home ; once more the
blue waters of the distant lake
glistened before him; once more
he satin the cottage garden with
his widowed mother, and watched
the setting sun.
Once more that mothers words
sounded in his ears, "John, don't
forget your God, and He'll not for-

Yes: six months had passed
since he heard these words, and
yet they seemed to sound in his
ears. Tears filled his eyes ; and
risiiiK he folded his hands, and
kneeled in prayer; then, taking
up his pen, he. wrote this:

Our Lost Ones.
We speak of those who have
gone before us to the other life,
and in the imperfect speech of
earth we call them the friends
whom we have' lost'. Perhaps a
father dies, after many years of
hofy, useful activity, or, a little
child, called away in its guileless
infancy, knowing little of the ills
of existence here, and nothing1 of
the sins which here abound, and
we number them among the loved
Yet the word is true only to one
aspect of the case, and is wholly
inapplicable to the real fact. We
have indeed lost their society for
a time. Their faces we see not
now; their voices are silent; they
are no longer near us, to cheer bv
their faith and hope, or make lis
happy by their very presence.
lo the eye, and the ear, tfiey are
lost But even in reference to the
present, they are not wholly lost.
Memory still lives. The words
of a pious father or mother, who
lias passed away, come to us again
and again, like voices from the
eternal world. The counsels and
admonitions, uttered long" ago,
ather sanctity and authority
when we reflect that the lips
which uttered them are now- si
lent, and the, hand laid lovingly
upon ours to enforce the lesson of
wisdom, is turned to dust.
The recollection of a brief in
fantile life is full of tender mem
ories, and no bitterness mingles
with the tears which Ave shed.
On the other shore we expect
to meet them again. TheA- are

They fondly hoped to see him

then to rebel,hercely against pa

from sin to sin, his destroyers led
him along, till he became alto

noAV home is hateful to him.
His father's remonstrances, his
mother's tearful entreaties, only
irritate him. A beckoning finger
held out by one of his evil com
panions has more poAver to draw
him on to dishonor and ruin,
than love's strong arms have
to hold him back 1'rom the

Hard Water for Drinking Purposes.
Dr. Letheby, In an article on
the water supply of London,
states that Avater of moder
ate hardness, like that used in
London, Paris, Vienna, and some
other, European cities, is always
to be preferred to that which is
entirely soft, as being best suited
for domestic purposes, on account
of being brighter to the eye and
more agreeable to the taste. He
also makes the singular announce
ment that the French authorities
are so Avell satisfied of the supe
riority of hard Avater that they
pass by that of the sandy plains,
near Paris, and go far away to
the chalk hills of Champagne,
where they find Avater even hard
er than that ofXondon; giving
as a reason for the preference that
more of the conscripts from the
soft-Avater districts are rejected,
on account of the want of
strength of muscle, than from the
hard-Avater districts, from which
they conclude that the calcare
ous, matter is favorable to the
formation of the tissues.
Dr. Letheby further states that
the mortality in England is great
er, on an average, in places where
soft-Avater is used, other circum
stances being equal, than where
the Avater is hard; and it is sug
gested that the sparkling hard
A-aters of the limestone districts
are relished, not only because,
they are pleasant to the eye, but
on account of some hygienic
prqperliesjn, the excess. p.fcaji;
bonic acid they contain, and pos
