" Yes ; you muit have seen him too

Delia could have cried with vexatiou.
Guy had fallen considerably in her es-
uuiaiion since me May itciore.
If Guy's inglorious exit from the
aue must be witnessed, why must it
have neon by George t
.Delia would much rather any one
else had teen it. Ucorge was brave
sho knew, and in spite of herself she
could not help thinking that Guy was
a coward. Uuy Hurt's, hack was lame
indeed, and fur several days he kept
within doors One day when he felt
well'again he Volunteered to carry
lunch to the haymakers. Delia hahd
cd liitu the basket, and he1 kissed her
for the tirflt time as he took it, hi an
ticipation of a favorable answer to the
all important question which at length
he fairly proposed, and to which ho
was to receive an uuawer thut night.
Delia directed Guy to tuke the path
across the great pasture lot, it being a
nearer way than by the laue tu the
meadow, uddiug misehievously :
" Jlolly is iu the live -acre lot, so you
ueed not fear."
Dinner time came nnd with it the
hungry men, but no Uuy. The horn
was blown for supper, and yet he did
not muke his appearance.
.Mr. Gould said he was irlud of it
uud hoped he had gone for good, but
his daughter lelt concerned, rshe had
quite lurgottou the little episode ol the
cowlane uud anxiously puzzled her lit
tle head to fathom the mystery of Guy's
strange absence. Had he been to the
luodow with the lunch ?
No. No one there had seen ayu-
thing of him. As no one else took
any interest in the affair Delia eonsid
errd it her duty to go in quest of her
stray lover. She 'walked up the path
loading through the pasture. When
nearly through the held sho tound the
basket, its contents scattered about on
the truss. All the cattle, including a
pair of huge oxen, were huddled to
gether under an oak near by.

" Why, Guy what in the world arc

" Drive that vicious ox away. lie

run for my life."
Delia did as she was requested, find

Guy crept dowu from his perch
" It is a shame, Delia, lor your lather
to keep such animals on his ploce. The
cow laid me up for a week, and uow,

Delia said almost sternly.
"-He tossed his long horns just as
that brute of a cow did, and galloped
round here like a fury. He was right
at my heels, I kuew the sound, when I
reached the tree ; but I made quick
work gettiug out ofthe way."
" 1 can well believe that I said Delia
luiliuu' iiuietly ; -'but you surely
needn't have staid up there all day."
I tell you, my dear, they haven t
been a hundred rods from the oak since
I was fortunate enough to find refuge

Jie only wanted to make your ac

HUUUE3IIONH OR TH MONTH.
There are many things, that need
our special caro this month, such as
looking to the various apartuieuts in
which our stock is placed for winter.
Every opening should be closed that
will subject the animal to unnecessary
Htock that is to be wintered iu the
pastures aud fields should bo assigned
to lots aud fields where there are wind-'
breaks and dry grounds, or brushy
nooks in which they may shield them
selves from the stormy blasts. If it is
not in our power to furnish stables and
sheds for our stock, we should see to it
that they have something to screen
them from the i-cvcro weather. Straw
ricks make very comfortable quarters ;
the straw tramped under foot serves as
bedJing and at the same time makes
(with the droppings of the stock) a
valuable manure heap, if removed to
the fields before the rains wash away
the strength into the running streams.
Manure. Every possible provision
should be made to turn every waste
about our feeding places into manure.
Old straw, stalks, cobs, and all kinds
of litter usually trodden under foot
should be caifully deposited iu some
pen or shed and at convenient times
mixed with layers of soil and forked
over, and ere the close of winter we
shall have saved an invaluable store of
wealth for our fields if properly dis
tributed, to be realized in future har
vests. We urge again that every far
mer and gardener look well to this mat
ter uow ; and mere, we believe every
wido awake farmer will see it.
ICK. Norn is the time to arrange
for a crop of ice. Few farmers put up
ice, but it would be well it more ot this
cheop luxury was stored and used.
1'lans for cheap ice bouses have been
published in the ' Farmer, ' and any
one who has a little mechanical in-
Kcnuity can, with a few hundred feet
of lumber aud a few, loads of sawdust,
make one which will answer the pur
pose, and will pay well for itself in
the comfort it brings in tho summer
mouth?, in keeping butter, milk, meats,
and other articles of food. Especially
is ice valuable in sickness, to which
11 are liable. Pack the
largest cakes obtainable. Don't wait
for a second freeze, but take the first
that comes if four inches or more in
thickuess aud clcur.
Ditches and Drains should be
cleared of leaves aud other matter that
would obstruct the free passage of wa
ter, before they are locked up with
The Machines, if you have them,
should be carefully housed during the
winter. It seems almost absurd to
make such a suggestion as this, since
the fact is so apparent to even the
most thoughtless ; yet, unfortuuately,
it is oue of the most importaut and ap
propriate suggestions we can make, for
it is no uucommou thing to see a mow
er or reaper woth from 8100 to $200,
standing out in the held, wbere it was
last used, unsheltered. Plowa, bar
rows, and other implements suffer iu
the same way. I be damage done to1
many kinds of implements by this
careless usage in a single year is often
as much as twenty-five per cent, of their
cost, and all for the want ot a shelter
from ram and suow.
Seed Uokn. In Bbelling corn for
grinding, save out the finest ears for
planting. At the South-eastern In
diana Fair, at Aurora, a farmer showed
us the result he had achieved in this
way, in some of the finest corn we have
ever seen. For several years he has
made a careful selection of tho best
ears for seed, und he has been well re
warded for doing so in the increased
crops he produces. The quality aud
the y told we botb ot the boat.
Heading. iiay in' a good supply oi
valuable books and papers for the
ong winter evenings; Look over the
lists of books ns they appear in your
papers and magazines, and Ecnd for
some that strike your fancy. The
money puid for good books is never

DeTni, rather tartly.
ucnt German geographer, has received
advices, via Norway, that the land at
the cant of the islands of Spitzbergonj
of which the position has frequently
changed on the charts during the past
two centuries, has at last beeo reached
'aud that, during the month of August;
last, it was thoroughly explored by
Captain Nils JoUnseu, of Tromtoe
Another Norwegian captaiu, Altmauu
of Hammerlest, although reaching tho
same locality, failed to make observe-,
tions of any importance, so that it was1
reserved for Captain Johnscn to com
plete the work. Ho left Tromsbe for;
the fisheries of Nova Zetubla iu tbu
yiiclit Lydiana wilh a crew of nine men.
At the beginning of June, Hays l)r;
Potertnaun, he shaped his courcc to
ward the western part of tho vast cea
which cxtcuds between the blands of
Spitzbergen and Nova Zembla. Du
ring the latter part of tho saiuo month
he arrived rome 80 kilometers to the
southeast ofthe Uyk Is islands (n little
group off tho cast coast of Spitzbergcn),
and iu the midst of a great polar cur
rent that transports enormous quanti
ties of ice toward the earteru shores of
the Spitzbergcn and ltareu islauds.
Iu the following July and Augutt, tho
ice current turned mote to the east
ward, leaving the western half of tho
sea comparatively clear. Captain'
Johnsen, who meantime wus tnakingj
large hauls offish ou the great. .Spitz
bergcn banks, tuddenly discovered, on
the afternoon of the lu'th of August,
that he had been carried to over 78'
uorth Iutitudc, and shortly attcr per-'
ccivcd the laud which it U bclieued
appears ou the charls of 1071 under"
the name of Wiche or Gillis land.
Finding the sea open on (be east arid
southeast shores ot the island, Johnscn
anchored his vessel near the northeast
point, at latitude about 79 north, and
disembarked iu order to explore the
surroundings, to ascend n mountain
near the coast, and also to obtaiu a
supply of the wood which he saw in
enormous quantities ou the beach.
The main islauds he found to the ac
companied by others smaller in extent.
On no portion of the laud could exten
ded snowfields bo seen. One glacier
was visible on the southeast coast, while
numerous streams of clear water were
The length of the island between its
furthest poiuts was, determined to be
forty-four niariue miles. The drift
wood hud uccuiuulatcd in vast heaps,,
hundreds ol Icct Iroin the snore aud us
high as tweuty feet above the sea level.
The principal animals inhabiting the'
polar regions were observed, and es
pecially the Greenland seal, which ap
peared in immense numbers. The ex
plorers evince considerable surprise at
the reindeer, which they state aro fat
ter aud larger in size than any they had
ever seen. On the back of one oi
these animals, fat was found of over
three inches, iu thickness. . Specimens
of argillaceous and quartziferous rock
were collected aud, with some fossil
vegetation, 'forwarded to museums iu
Europe for examination. Ou the
evening ofthe 17th of August, John
seu departed, following the southern
aud southeastern shores of the island.
There was uo ico except ou the north
coast, while in a northeasterly direc
tion the sea was opeu as far as the eye
could reach. Regarding the Austrian
expedition of Payer and Wieprecht, we
have news as late as the 10th of Aug
ust: At that date the expedition was
near tho Isle of llarentz, 70 degrees 7
minutes north latitudo und oq degrees
24 minutes longitude, east of Paris.
There is little of novelty communica
ted other thau that the temperature of

PAPER FOR INDDSTlttAlyPURJ
To the ingenuity of au Eiiglish in
ventor is due a method of obtaining. a'
paper fubric peculiarly seiceable, iu
the industrial arts. It is a mixture of
various animal dud vegetable substan
ces, the former1 being wool, silk, und
skins ; tho latter, flax, ju,e, hemp, and
cojtori. These articles are nil reduced
to a fine pulp, bleached, aud then fel
ted by means of'inachiiiery. The mix
ture produces a fabric of wonderful
flexibility nntl strength, which cau be
sewed together by a machine (ii the
same maimer as woven ' fabrics1, and
makes as strong a seam. J!
This paper is of a very serviceable
nature, being made iuto tablo cloths,
napkins, handkerchiefs, pduts, curtains,
shirts, und, other vurlicles of dress.
Some ofthe gurmenls ihadc'from this
felted paper are of very elaborate de
sign and peculiar beauty ; they nru
cither printed or stamped, and bear so
close a resemblance to linen and cot
ton goods of like descripti6n as lo al
most defy' the scrutiny or skilled, ex

that it would be almost impossible to
imitate by any ordinary skill with' the
needle. Imitation blankets, und
chintz for beds, furniture or curtains,
arc also made very cheaply ; und em
bossed table-cloths aud figured nan
kins, made of felted paper, so. closely
resemble 'the genuine damask linen i
ns to please oven the most fastidious.
Iu Germany, paper uupkius have been
used for several years. Their cost is
so small that they pay for themselves
before they require to be caist aside.
A MINIATURE OF MARY QUEEN
OF SCOTS. ' ,
Originally tho miuiaturo was encased
in a heavy ugly wooden frame, dis
colored by age, but without paiut or
varnish. As a' likeness it icsembles
somewhat the Lochleveu portrait, but
is very much more beautiful. Tho ex
pression is wholly different. As a
work of art it is unquestionably of a
high order of tneriu . From -the long
but not prominent chin tho face rises
in a rapidly .widening oval to a brow
massive and broad," shaded by curls
of the most exquisite suburu, graceful
delicately peucillcd curls, in which tho
unknown artist discovers u master'
skill. Ho was in love with that hair,
and well ho might be. The hrowsiaro
arched, the oyes of decided brown -are
wide apart as the ox-eyed licra s, the
nose broad but finely out,, the lips
handsomely carved but unskillful!)

Lord Mark Kerr, who distinguished

Tho colonel thought that it was high
