"DON'T WHIP HIM."
Our Bob was pinching the kitten
And kicking bis primer about.
And palling a beetle to pieces.
His face all awry In a pout;
HI mamma, who, silent and patient.
Had heard all lim frettng and noise.
ow reached fortae whip on the mantel
The terror of four-ye ..r-old boys.
Bat grandma, with snow-white 'kercliier
Pinned over her warm, loving breast.
hre ten little heads bad been pillowed
And rocked Into childhood's sweertrest.
Looked up from ner little-wool Mocking,
Joat finished and laid on her knee.
And said, "Dear, you'll rent his temper,
Vou had better let the child be
"Dnnt whip him ; his father beiore him
Waa flogged and shut up in the dark.
And stood on one toot In the corner.
And disciplined up to the mark ;
We gave him no credit lor honor.
Bat watcbed him as spiders watch flies.
And what did It teach him Why. mainly
To practice deceit and tell lies. .
"We called It affection and duty
ttod knows we were fond of the boy
But I guess his remembrance of childhood
is not quite a well-spring of Joy.
So put np that willow whip, daughter.
And try little Bobby once more ;
You see he's forgotton his pavsion.
And lies half asleep on the floor."
Then grandmother lifted her darling.
And patted his head on her breast.
And sang an old favorite diUy.
Till all Bobby's woes were at rest.
And so the wee whip, bright and yellow.
Was laid on the mantel again ;
And that is the way these old grandmas
Spoil nine boys outol ten.

MAPLE SUGAR APPARATUS.
BY W. I. CHAMBERLAIN.
I believe I shall confer a favor on
maple sngar makers, as well as eaters,
by calling their attention to some im
proved apparatus for its manufacture.
In olden times the sap was ran from
the tree in an elder "spile'' caught in
a wooden trough dog out of the half
of a log, and boiled in iron caboose
kettles hung between two largelogs by
chains suspended from long "sweeps.''
The sap was full of dirt, leaves, in
sects, and sometimes even mice It
soured too in the rough &pout and
rougher trough, and at last-the, fire
coming np around the edges of the
kettle scorched the syrup and filled it
with cinders and ashes, so that the
sugar and syrup were dark colored
and unpalatable. One improvement
after another came in.on spout,trough,
and kettle, until the work was lessen
ed more than half, and the sugar and
syrup was as much better than that
of the old,as the Dels ware or Catawba
grape is better than the wild. I will
give briefly what I believe to be the
best apparatus now in use.
The best Bpout is made of rnaleable
iron, cast and galvanized, so it cannot
rust or sour the sap. It has notches
so the bucket may be hung on the
1 ne oesi oucJceu are tuose in com
mon use in this region made of tic,
three sizes fitting together in sets or
nests. A hole is punched just below
the rim of each bucket, so that it can
be hung on the epout. A wooden
cover about eleven inches square over
each bucket wiC exclude everything
So far the sap is clear and free f i om
sourness. Now if we can boil it in
the least possible time, and with no
scorching, and have the syrup remov
ed just as fast as it is boiled, little by
little, we shall have the clearest,Egbt
est colored syrup that can be made.
The best boiler. yet discovered lor
this purpose, is the Improved Sorghum
Evaporator. It is of galvanized iron,
rests on the arch so the fire can only
touch the bottom of the boiler, and
hence cannot burn the sap. It has
hollow lodges so arranged as to guide
the sap back and forth across the pan
in a slow stream, until it comes out
thick syrup. It enters a large stream
of sap at one corner, and flows out a
small stream of beautiful syrup, like
strained honey, at the enrner diagon
ally opposite. The evaporator boils
faster, takes not half the fuel, and
makes much better syrup than th
best of the sheet-iron pans. At one
time in. March, 1671, I evaporated 48
barrels of sap with a cord of 4 foot
maple wood and a half a cord of 4
foot wood made of broken and partly
rotten rails, the whole being worth
probably as much as 1 f cords of good
maple wood. The same wood would
not have boiled one-half the sap with
the old pans. At another time I boil
ed eight barrels of sap with one fourth
cord of maple wood. As for rale,
have often boiled and run off three
gallons to the hour for several hours.
The syrup, too, was ready for market,
perfectly clear, beautifully light color
ed, and weighing eleven pounds to the
gallon. The old apparatus does well
if it averages one gallon per hour.and
if it boils twelve instead of thirty-two
barrels to the cord. It takes over a
barrel of syrnp to make a gallon of
Perhaps the covers are the greatest
improvement in proportion to their
cost. Any farmer who has poplar
(white wood) or basswood timber, can
get them out, plane and paint and cut
them, for one dollar per hundred, be
sides timber and drawing. The stufl
should be sawed one inch thick, and
eleven inches wide, and may be plan
ed and painted while green, an J then
cat into- squares - by machinery. I
have foand it a great help in gather
ing sap to have the covers painted
different colors on different aides, for
instance, red and white. They are
all placed say red side np one day,
then as the sap from each bucket is
taken, its cover is placed, turned white
side op. The next gathering they
inverted again in the same way. Thus
it can be seen at a glance, and at a
distance often rods, by the color of a
cover, whether the sap of a particular
tree has ben taVen, and it ia some
times difficult in a large 'sugar camp'
to tell without some such device

Keep sheep dry tinder foot with
litter. This is even more necessary
than roofing them Never let them
stand in mud or snow. Drop or take
out the lowest birs as the sheep enter

greatest care, and use the smallest

any sheep is hurt, catct it at ODoe
and wash the wound with something

with splinters tightly, loosening as the
limb swells. Keep a number t ROod

What our Farmers Must Do.
Farmers must profit by any mistaxe
that have been made, by guarding
them in the future. There are times
when it is extremely hazardous for an
army to inaugurate a new movement
by cutting loose from its old base ; so
is it equally dangerous for the farmer
to abandon his mode of farming and
engage in new enterprise because he
has not met with the success he antic
ipated. The low prices at the present
time find the balance on the wrong
side of the sheet with very many far
mere, and they begin at once to look
around for something new instead of
studying some of the causes that
brought about the result, which could
be easily remedied by proper atten
tion. In former articles we have shown
the folly of this changing continually
from one thing to another, and it is as
applicable to the present time as to
any former one It is many times ex
pedient to drop some kinds of grain
or vegetables, or to add new varieties
So can a change be made with some
kinds of stock, with no less advan
tage. In doing this the paramount
question is Will the soil be benefit
ed by the change ? When a farmer
will raise such crops and stock as will
keep up or increase the fertility of the
soil, he is cretain of ultimate success.
Impoverished forms bring disaster to
their owners in like manner. When
we see a farm running down, thr own
er soon follows after with equal rapid,
The present leisure months are an
appropriate lime to mature our plans
for the reason. By the aid of Far
mers' Clubs, and agricultural periodi
cals and books, we can be greatly as
sisted in jterfecting plans that will re
suit in sucoe;-. The intelligent lar
mer almost invariably takes agricul
tural papers. To those who do not
we would say Go and subscribe at
once, and you will wonder why you
were so thoughtless as to neglect such
an important matter. A farmer should
be posted in agricultural science the
same as the lawjers are posted in the
laws, or a doctor in medicines
Knowledge U the ammunition that
operates by force and secures victory.
These are perilous times to many far-
mers, and they well may inquire
"What shall we do to be saved.' Too
many prosecute their business in an
ticipation ot big croj and 1 igger pri
ces, and, failing in either, they are
unsuewssf ul. The iKsrilous high prices
made many farmers reckless in all
their operations, and they still con
tinueinthe same perilous manner.
In laying out plans lor the coming
season, we roust shape onr business so
as to lessen expenses, and thereby
secure a profit on our produce, it pri
ces are low Nearly every thing the
farmer has to buy is high, and he
must economise or his purchases will
exceed his sales If the farming com
munity would cease buying so reck
lessly, it would tend to equalize prices
which are now greatly against them.
An old friend used to repeat often
this maxim to the writer, "Always
live within ooe-half of your income.''
Iffarmeis would always live will in
all their income, it would be econo
mizing greatly. The great demon of
destruction to many farmers is the
present "credit system.' We are in
duced to buy many things which we
could do without The result often
is, we have to sacrifice produce or
stock, to satisfy the demands of the
Let us resolve to avoid debt, buy
ing only what we actually need, and

the footings of the expense coluin will
be amazingly reduced. Those who
have not heretofore kept an account
should begin at once. A carefully
kept record is a strong base to rest
upon ; it is a fortification that can
always be relied upon. It is neces
sary lor the fanner to keep an account

Daily Exercise of the Horse.
Without regular exercise no horse
can long be kept in health, and I
believe that as far as this point is con
cerned, even those which are hard
worked would be better for half an
hour's airing every morning as soon
as they have been fed and before
they are dressed. But those masters
who are particular about the months
of the animals they ride or drive, find
that the hands of their grooms are
generally so heavy that they spoil the
delicate "feel" on which the comfort
and pleasure of riding and driving so
much depends. Hence, in such cases,
the poor horse is condemned to con
finement in his stable, not only cn the
day when he is to be ridden or driven,
but on those also when he is to be
The health ot the body is sacrificed
to the maintenance of the delicate
condition of the mouth, which is so
highly prized by good horsemen and
accomplished whips, and I confess that
I p'.ead guilty to having for a loDg
scries of years acted upon this princi
ple A fair share of health may be
attained without exercise, if the work
is never interrupted for more than a
single day, and at the came time,
there being only one pair of hands to
interfere with the mouth, its delicacy
is not impaired, that is to sty, if they
are not a) bad as those of the groom.
Sometimes a large and fmooth
snafHe is allowed as an exercise bridle,
in the hope that it cannot injure the
mouth, but even this will do mischief
if the weight of the rider is thrown
upon it, as is too o'ten the case.
Leaving cut of the question this ob.
jection to the adoption of exercise,
there can be no doubt that a daily
walk out ot doors for half an hour or
an hour, especially if it can be
managed on turf, will be of the great
est service to the horse's health

Taking Care of Lamps.

lamps U to wash with thin milk of
lime, which forms an emulsion with
the petroleum, and removes every
trace of it, and by washing a second

quantity of chloride of lime, even the
smell may be so completely removed
as to render the vessel thus cleansed
fit lor keeping beverages in. It the
milk ot lime be used warm instead of
cold, the iertion is rendered much
The best time for cleaning them is
the morning, tor reasons of safety, if
not convenience. Scarcely a week
passes during the winter but w read
accounts of frightful accidents from
kerosene lamps exploding and killing
or ecaning for life women and chil
dren. A simple knowledge of the
inflammable nature of the fluid would
probably put a stop to nearly all the
accidents. As the oil burns down
into the lamp, a highly inflammable
gas gathers over its surface, and as the
oil decreases the gas increases. When
the oil is nearly consumed, a slight
jar will often inflame the gas, and an
explosion is sure to follow, dealing
with it death and destruction. A
bombshell is not more to be dreaded.
Now. if the lamp is not allowed to
burn more than half way down, such
awidenLs are almost impossible. Al
ways fill your lamp in the morning :
then you never need fear an explosion,

Stepping in Father's Footsteps.
One bright winter's morning, after
a snow f tonn, a father took his hat
for a walk to attend to some farm af
fairs requiring his attention. As he
staried, his little boy of five summers
a'so snatched his hat, and followed
the father with mock dignity, and an
assumed business-like air When they
reached the door, the gentleman no
ticed that no track or pathway had
been made in the snow, and he hesi
tated about letting his boy follow him.
But the soft, fleecy snow looked ro
tempting, so pearly white, that he con
eluded to allow the child to walk after
him. He took long and rapid strides
through the untrodden snow, when,
suddenly remembering his 'little boy,'
he paused, looked back for him, and
"Well, my son, don't you find it
hard work to walk in this deej snow."
Oh ! no,' said the boy, "I'm coin
ing ; for, father, I step in all you r
True enough, the dear child was
planting his tiny feet just where the
parent's had trodden. The child's
reply startled the father, as he reflect
ed that thus would his-child keep pace
with him, and follow in his tracks
through life. He was not a friend to
Jesus, not a man of prayer, and not a
Christian; and well might he pause
and tremble as he thought of his child,
ever striving ''to step in all ot his
tracks," oweward, onward, through
life's mysterious mazes and myths,
toward eternity ! The little boy's
reply brought that strong, stubborn
hearted man to think, when even the
preached word of God had made no
impression upon him. Finally he re
pen ted, and sought and found eace
in believing in Christ. We believe
ho is now making such tracks through
life that at soma day that son may be

all of your tracks.
