nrntcBimox TWO douaks in advaxcx.
ARE THE CHILDREN HBME?
Each day, when the glow of samel
Fades in the western iky,
And the wee ones, tired of playing ,
Go tripping lightly by,
I steal away from ay husband,
Asleep in the eaay chiir,
And watch from the open doorway
Their facet fresh and fair.
Alone In the dear old homestead,
That once wu full of life.
Full of girllih laughter,
Echoing with boylth itrlfe,
We two are waiting together;
And oft, ai the ihadbwa come,
With tremulous voice, he calli me:
"It It night, are the children homer"
"Yet, love," I antwer him gently,
"They're all home long ago ; "
And I ting, In my quivering treble,
A tong to toft and low,
'Till the old man dropt to tlumber,
VI Ui hit head upon hit hand,
And I tell to mytelf the number
At home In the better land.
Home, where never a aorrow
Mball dim their eyet with tean,
Where the tmlle of God It on them,
Through all the Summer yean.
1 know, yet my armt are empty.
That fondly folded teren ;
And the mother heart within me
It almost ttarved for ilearen.
Sometimes, in the dutk of evening,
1 only ilint my eyei,
And the children are all about me,
A vlilon from the aklet;
The babet whose dimpled fingers
Lost the way to my breast,
And the beautiful ones, the angels,
1'asned to the world of the blest.
A breath, and the vision Is lifted
Away on the wings of light,
And again wc two are together,
All alone in the night.
They tell mc his mind It falling.
Hut I tmlle at idle fears ;
He it only back with the children,
In the dear and peaceful yean.
And still, as the Summer tunnel
Kadct away In the wett,
And the wee ones, tired ol playing,
Go trooping home to rest,
ily husband calli from hit corner,
'Say, loc, have the children comer"
And I answer, with eyes uplifted,
"Vii, dear; they are all at home."

It Is marvelous how sheep and wool-

try within the last fifteen or tweaty
year. In '1800 there were only 53,-

Wc now have nearly 60,000,000. In
18G0 the wool clip amuuntod to only
60,000,000 pounds; to-day it is nearly
300,000,000-nti increase within this
period of over two fold of sheep and
tire fold In the production of wool,
giving unmistakable evidence of our
advance in this industry.
A corrcsjwndcnt of the German
lown Telegraph says: "Fresh, clean

tle will remove them on three or four
applications. I have removed the
warts time after time and have not
been able to find tho wart for the
fourth application. If I should send
the Latin name for lard and tell men
to pay fifty cents to the druggists for
about two cents worth of good lard

The following table is as near cor
rect as possible, to determine tho num
ber of dajs of pregnancy of the var

Among animals, particularly marcs
nnd cows, tho younger ones will run a
few days short , and the old ones a few
days over, the following timo: Marcs
run 340 days; cows, 238 days; ewes
nnd the goats, 160 days; sows, 112
days; bitches, 64 days; cats, 60 days.
Hens generally sit 21 days; turkeys
and peafowls, 28 days ; geese, SO days;
ducks, 30 days ; pigeons, 18 days from
last egg laved, and canaries, 13 days.
In applying fertilizers of a soluble
character it is economical to manure
the plant rather than the soil. The
practice is especially applied to crops
sown in drills, whore the plants arc a
considerable distance apart iu the
rows. The manure is deposited by
tho drill along the line of eash plant
row and immediately covered In.
Manures which arc not so readily
soluble produce the best eflect when
intimately mixed with the soil.
budreds of taoBsaads roam over the
brood ranches) of Texas, New Mexico,
Colorado aad California, of the de
scendants of the original Spanish im
portations into Mexico from Spain in
the sixteenth century. Banging over
the vast plains and pampas of that
mild climate, tbey increased innlti
tudinoiuly. Texas became full of
them, New Mexico also, and since
the incorporation of these countries
with ours, uncouth and ragged as
they were in their wild condition,
those cattle hare been brought under
the subjection of civilized stockmen,
arranged into herds, branded. with the
marks of their owners, and at market
able age driven through the Indian
Territory into Kansas, and thence
shipped to Missouri and Chicago mar
kets, either for immediate slaughter,
as ttteir condition would afford, or
sold to the graziers and feeders for a
better market Eastward. These wild
cattle are unfit for choice beef, but the
cows, crossed on the ranches by short
horn bulls, produce tolerably good
steers, partaking strongly of the blood
and forms of their sires, and, with
good pasturage and grain topping-off
become marketable animals in the
hands of the corn-growing graziers
who purchased them.
The grading up of cattle in the West
and South-west has been going on
rapidly within the last ten years. It
would be difficult to determine wheth
er Illinois or Kentucky is the center
of the short-horn breeding interest in
this country. The center, wherever
it may be, is a movable one. The
Texan steer, that is, the original leiig-
horncd, half-wild animal, is rapidly
disappearing. Droves of these cattle
are now rarely seen. They have been
displaced by letter ones. N. Y. Ship
THE COST OF RAISINB WHEAT.
A Missouri correspondent of the
Country Oentleman writes an interest
ing account of his experiments in de
termining the cost of raising wheat.
He says :
"T. B. Terry, in his able article on
wheat, touches a question vital to the
farming interests throughout the Mid
dle and Eastern States. We arc
brought into competition with the fer
tile and easily cultivated wheat belt of
the North-west, where that cereal can
be raised and placed on the market at
a cost of thirty-two cents per bushel-
anil when we take into consideration
the fact that the wheat thus cheaply
raised is tho "hard spring," which
runs no risk of being winter-killed,
and is greatly preferred by millers for
exportation, it is time that we, who
arc contending against such odds,
should be looking out for a better and
cheaper method, to be able to meet
our Dakota rivals. It costs us from
fifty to seventy cents to place a bushel
of wheat on the market, getting no
higher price for it than they do. For
the past six years I have given this
matter close study, endeavoring to
solve the question of bringing down
the cost of raising a bushel of wheat
to a minimum.
My first trial was on a field that pro
duced, with tltc best of cultivation,
eight bushels of wheat per acre, the
land having been worn out by crop
ping to wheat for a number of years
before I got Jt. While the crop was
on the ground, and dnring the early
spring, I sowed a peck of clover seed
to the acre, which gave a close heavy
set. Immediately after the wheat-was
cut, aud as fast as placed in shock, I
applied on the stubble half a bushel of
Portland land plaster. By the first of
August following, the field was mat
tod with clover front one to two feet
high and in full bloom. Then, just
nine weeks from the time of cutting
the wheat, I started the plows with
sixtccn-inch rolling cutters, burying
the clover under a square furrow eight
inches deep. I harrowed the ground
twice during the following six weeks
with a Scotch harrow (the best harrow
ever invented), and commenced drill
ing the wheat on September 20. The
ground had become almost hard, ex
cepting the surface, which was kept
mellow by the harrow. The follow
ing is the account per acre for the first

WEALTH IN CATTLE.
It Is estimated that tho annual cat
tle sales iu the United States amount
to about $300,000,000. This wealth
has been greatly increased by the large
augmentation iu number of thorough

three' volumes. These volumes are
occupied with the record or pedigree
of 70,000 rows and 47,000 bulls, and all
of ose class, Viz : Durham or Short
horns. The best beef which finds its
way to market is that of graded Dur
ham cattle; The Agricultural Review
makes, this comment :
