to his maternal grandfather, who
is a wealthy land owner in Ohio.
On day, after making his first
visit o aSabbah-school, and.be-
lngxfuly impressed with the. re-r
ligious lessons taught there, his
grandfather took him down on
the farm to show and gather the
fruit oi a large walnut tree,which
was' npe and ready for the har
vest. On the way the little fel-low,-with
tho philosophy which
"reads sermons in stones," said,
"Grandpa, who do all these
fields and woods belong to ?"
"Why," said the matter of-fact
gentleman, "to me;-
'No, sir,' emphatically respond
ed the child; "they belong to
The grandfather said nothing
till they reached the rich-laden
tree, when he said :
"Well, my boy, whom does
this tree belong to?"
This was a paser, and for a
time the boy hesitated; but cast
ing a longing look upon the nuts
'Well, grandfather, the tree be

The Folly of Parents.
-One of the most distinguished
teachers'says that in the case of
two.thousand or more boys who
have passed under his care, no"
parent has ever forgiven him if
he said, "Your boy is not quick
or bright; but he is the thor
oughly pure, and true, and good."
They did not forgive him for say
ing so, because they took it ior
granted that the goodness could
De;atramea in any oaa Hour or
so ;,"bmV the .brightness or quick
ness seemed,! much larger im
portance. On the other question
if the teacher said, "Your boy
learns every lesson, and recites
it well ; he is at the head of his
class, and will take any placo he
chooses in any school," nine par
ents, no says, out oi ten are sat
isfied, though he should have to
add, "I wish I was as sure that
he was honest, pure, and unsel
fish. But in truth, the other boys
ao not.like him; ana I am afraid
there is something wrong." To
that warning, he says, people
reply, "Ah, well, I was a little
wild myself when I was a bov
That will all come right in time."
"Will come right." as if that

Farm and Household.
Hints to Housekeepers.
Never allow a door to creak
for want of oil, or to shut hard
so as to require slamming to
maKe,n latch. i?or this purpose,
pass around once a week at
some'regular time, say Saturday
evening or Monday morning,
with a drop of oil on a feather,or
me up 01 the linger, and give
every rubbing part, latch, hinge,
etc., a touch. The door and
walls will last; longer than when
iiiuesBauuy pounded and batter
ed, arid the disagreeable noise
will not make sick persons worse
or annoy well ones.
Scissors sometimes work hard
when a tenth of a grain of oil!
loucnea aiong uie cuiung edges
10 maKe uiemiuuve uusny over
each other, will improve them
ventilation would Jje more
easily accomplished- and more
certainly performed, and rooms
kept with purer and healthier
air,if windows were made to slide
easily. If not hung by pulleys
and,weights, add good freely-
working-catches. Never permit
a broken pane m a house.
Cellars should be kept con
stantly clean as much so as
your parlor. It is the easiest
to it daily; and only becomes a
heavy task when you allow a
month's accumulations on. the
same principle that the boy who
combed his head once a summer
was amazed that any one could
do it daily.
Care of Lambs.
Sheep are not the only farm
stock that have retained or ad
vanced their actual value in the
market during the past year. It
is, therefore, for the farmer's in
terest that he carefully watch
his ewes and lambs at this seas
on. Ewes need better care than
wethers, and should be remov
ed to pens where thej can be
looked after daily. As they near
the hour of lambing, they should
again-be removed to a warm,
dry pen, and watched closely.
If tiie Jamb comes weakly, it
should have a mouthful or two
of warm milk until it is active
enough to suck. If it should be
come chilled, let it bo removed
at once, and warmed and fed un
til restored. But there will be
few weak lambs if ewes are led
previously with good clover hay,
and a few roots and a handful of
oats daily. No hogs should be
permitted near a pen of lambs ;
and the tamer and more gentle
sheep have been made, the less
danger there will be of the ewe
resenting any interference, eith
er with herself, or the lamb, and
disowning it in consequence.
Parmers' families are often
troubled about how to keep hams
in the summer time. We have
tried a good many way,sand have
always failed in keeping them
nicely. The smoke-house, though
all hidden away in- among the
apple trees that lay their lithe
limbs lovingly over, above, and
around it, is still to warm : the
wide roomy cellar too damp, and
the shop, though cool and airy,
being the large third-story of the
"old house,-' is too light.
Last spring, in very despera
tion, I sliced as for frying, scald
ed, and packed in jars, and pour
ed melted lard over.
This is a good way for keep
ing, but it is troublesome, unless
one has only a small quantity to
Then, in the beautiful summer
time, when we should eat cool
crisp, tender things from the
garden, butter with the dewv
drops all over it, cream, sweet
and delicious; custards, fruits,
jellies, curds, and -white bread,
it is not a very appetising job
to get ham ready for the table
that is covered with grease. It
gives a flavor and a feelot grease
to all the poetry that the regal
summer, crowned with flowers,
brings to us. But, with all my
woman's way of telling a story,
l am coming to a point.
A good neighbor, who knows
all about it, tells me that he al
ways packs hams in the early
spring time, before flies come, in
a box, with all the interstices be
tween the hams filled up some
coarse, dry salt that he has used
for many years for the same pur
pose ; salt that came out ol hsh
barrels. He washed and dried
it thoroughly first. He keeps
the box in his barn in a cool,
Cleaning up the Yards.
It is a little singular, that even
among most of our successlul far
mers, a certain class oi worK is
regarded as of an optional nature
and its performance as a mascu
line virtue. It is taken up "be
tween showers'' when it is too
wet for the spring plowing, piec
ed half reluctantly to the closing
portion of a broken day ; or in
the event of such interruptions
failing to turn the channels of
industry in that direction, it is
delegated to the "women folks."
This state of things will explain
to those who are not familiar
with farm life, how it comes, that
frequently in traveling through
the country, one may hnd well
tilled, clean fields surrounding a
house whose grounds are in
condition almost akin to a grave
yard of the last century.
It would certainly seem that
this field (or rather this lot)"i
one subject to improvement
that it really affords grounds for
one of the miner reforms that are
sweeping over the agricultural
districts. The duty of every
man a duty preached continu
ally by its advocates, is to make
home attractive, and nothing ex
erts a more marked influence on
a home than its surroundings,
Do not count that day lost which
leaves no other token of its pres
ence than, the smooth, tidy, fresh
raked lawn, the well trimmed
shrubbery, and the shapely flow
er-beds', newly hlled with ira
grant earth. And if at the end
of tho season, the day thus spent
does not pay lor itselt many times
over, we will resign henceforth
our office as a prophet. But
there is no hope that this reform
can be successfully inaugurated
(or . indeed any other reform).

Nutritive Value of Wheat
The London Dietetic Reform
tr shows by scientific data, that
wheat meal, which is cheaper
than bolted meal or hne Hour,
con-tains one-third more nutri

the bran has been sifted. Fine
flour, according to this journal,
is not iood at all, in the proper

elements of the grain which are

Grateftil Thousands proclaim Vrx
egar Bitters the" most Tronderftil In
rigorant tbat ever sustained th sinka;
No Person can take these Bitters
according to directions, and remain long
unwell, provided their bones are not de
stroyed by mineral poison or other
means, and vital organs wasted beyond '
Bilious, Remittent and Inter
mittent Fevers, which arc so preva
lent in the valleys of oar great rivers
throughout tho United States, especially
those of tho Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri,
Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan
sas, Red, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grande,
Pearf, Alabama, Jlobilo, Savannah, Ro
anoke, Jamc3, and many othe:;, with
their vast tributaries, throughout our j
entire country during the Summer and '
Autumn, and remarkably so during sea
sons of unusual heat and dryness, aro
invariably accompanied by extensive de
rangements of the stomach and liver,
and otherabdominal viscera. In their
treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow.
erful influence upon these various or
gans, is essentially necessary. There .
is no cathartic for the purpose equal' to '
Dk. J. Walkeu's Vinegar Bittebs,
as they will speedily remove the dark
colored viscid matter with which the ;
bowels are loaded, at tho same time -stimulating
the secretions of the liver,
and generally" restoring tho healthy
functions of the digestivo organs.
Fortify the hody against disease
by purifying all its fluids with Vinegar ;
Bitters. No epidemic, can tako holtl
of a system thus fore-armed. .

cleanse it when you find it obstructed and
sluggish in the veins: cleanse it whea it is
foal; your feelings will tell vou when. Keep
the blood pure, and the health of the system .
