A Yankee Trick.
Kentuckian and a Yankee
were once riding through the
aondi. the lormur on an inferi
or animil. The 1 titer wanted
to make a "awap," but he did
not aee bow he was lo doi.
At last he thought ot a plan.
(lis horse had been taught to
it down like a dug whenever
lie was touched with the spur?.
Seeing a wild turkey, the Yan-
kee made his horse perform
the trick, and asserted thtt he
was pointing game, as waa the
custom.
The Kentuckian rode on in
the direction indicated by the
horse's nose, and up rose a
turkey. This settled the mat
ter; the trade waa made, and
saddles and horses were ex
changed. After awhile they
came to a deep, rapid stream,
over wl ich the black bone
carried hia rider with ease.
But the Kentuckian, with the
Yaukee'a old beast, found great
d.ffi-'ulty in getting over, and
when they reached tbe middle
ol the stream he was afraid the
horse would allow himself lo
be carried awa( and endeavor
ed to spur him up to a more
vigorous action. Dowuiatthe
old horse on bis haunches.
bLok bertd" shouted the en
raged Kentuckian lo tho Yan
kee on the uther side of the
stream, "what does all this
mean!" "I want you to under
stand. stranger,1 cried the Yan
kee, preparing to ride away,
nbat htrse will pint Gab jit
as well as he will fowl."

Building Road Fence.
In tbe report of tha Wiseon
sin Agricultural Society, W. D.
Williams gives bis manner ol
making board fence, that from
similar experienca in fencing,
we know to be all right. lie
says:
'In 18591 built two lines ol
fenee making a lane into which
all my fields opened the lane
leading to the barn. On one
side of the lane the fence was
built in the usual m inner, lev
el with the surrounding ground;
on the other side, the bottom
board was raised fifteen inches
above the general level of the
ground along the line, and
when the fence was completed,
two farrows were thrown to
ward the fence on either side,
the first against the fence, tbe
second furrow thrown on top o
the fira't one, raising the ground
or bank nearly to tho bottom
board of the fence. The bunk
waa then smoothed off", and a
plenty of grass reed strewn
over it. This line ot fence was
never disturbed by any animal,
nor a board nailed on, or a
post righted up while I occu
piel the larm (nine yerj.)
Nfi'herdid any animal attempt
to get over it tc roy knowledge,
and when I left the farm in
1868, tho fence was nearly trne
in line as the day it was built.
The other line was a source ol
constant anxiety and watchful
nesa. Fully one fifth of origt
nul fence boards had been re
placed by new ones, and not a
few of those remaining bore
the marks of the frequent as
saults of cattle and horses, ei
iherin attempts to get over or
through the fence, or in rub
bing against It ; and the po9ta
had lo be frequently righted.
while the wind by, awaying
against It, broke many nails
Now il presents a dilapida
ted, insecure barrier lo cattle
while the other line ia appar
ently good. The material: was
the satni in both lines.,
"Now the reason the sharp
ly inclined bank gave no con
venient standing place for cut
lie to rub asAiiiiH the fence;
and anima! in approaching
found their fore feet below the
levol, thus pitching the head
down and making the fence
insurmountably high. And for
the same reason no cattle or
horses ever attempted lo crowd
it reach through.
The sharply inclined bank
gave also a dry. firm, bed fn
the posts, holding them at all
times securely in line, and firm
against the force nf the wind,
and, I think, added to the lile
ot the fence at leatt fiiteen per
cent. From my experience I
feel warranted in affirming
that this method will save not
less than aix per cent, annual
eo9t over the usual mode ol
building. I will further ex
plain that in the line of fence
before named built on the old
plan, the posts were set three
teetin the ground holes bored
two feet, hut were banked a
foot. One) miatike I made in
this line of fence .was in saw
ing th boards and bulling the
end together, I am now con
vinred that the better way id
to lap the boards on the pol,
and use but two nail, about
ixteena on the lapped parts
and twelves on the middle, un
less tbe posts are oak, when
eights and twelve, are saffi
cient (fercine siz.) By thi
method of bail ling, with post,
kvan'zed, or steeped in gas tar
I am confident that at least
eight per cent, can be tared
from the present annual cost
ot I trm board aid pott fences,
by diminishing the cost of re
pair, and increasing their da-rability.
Pexios paying by il e Cn t d

The IJudson Register deals :
humorously with a question of .
grammsr, as follows:
MA searcher after truth writes
to ua which is grammatically '
correct to say, the house ' it '
building,' or Hh'e house 'is' be-
ing. built;' the Blreetia paTing,1 '
or 'the street is beiog paved! '
I here Is a wide diversity of
opinion opou this aubjectj but '
we incline to favor na being "
built,' for the following reasons:
supose you wish to express an.
other kind of an idea, would '
vouaay, for instance, Johnny 1
is spanking' or 'Johnny it be. ;
ing tpankedr The ' diiterence
to you may seem immaterial,
hut it it a matter of consider- 1
able importance to Johnny; '
and it is probable that, if anr I
choice were given him, he
would suddenly select the for.
raer alternative. Too say again '
that 'the missionary ia eating.1
Certainly this expresses a very
iliffarent and much pleasanter
idea than the former 'The"
missionary it beiug eaten,' and
the sensation is very different
for tbe missionary too. We
have consulted several mission.
aries about It, and they all 1
seem to think tbat tbe two "
things are somehow not the
same, no matter what the
grammarians say. '
kBut it is to be confessed that '
there are occasions when the '
difference in the form Is not so '
marked. You assert, we say,
that 'Hannah is huggiag'
which, by tbe way, would .be 1
very improper thing to do; it
would be positively scandalous. '
indeed. Precisely a similar
idea is conveyed if you :say '
'Hannah is being hugged' but '
it is a peculiarity of the act :
that is hardly ever one'tidei; '
there is no selfishness about it.'
And it is the aame with "kissing. '
'Jane is kissing, and" her
mother onht to know it it sb (
Is just exactly as if we say, 1
Jane is being kissed,' and the '
sensation it the tame, although '
none of the grammars, by a 5
singular inadvertence, mention
Hie fact. It will not be necet- :
ary, however, for our correi- :
poudant to attempt to prove
these last mentioned facts by ' .
practice. lie must take oar
word for them. Unlesa he does
n, we ihall answer no more
q-iestions in lyntax lor him or
my one else. Our duty is to 1
conserve the morals of the
immunity, not to start people
to playing private games of Co
penhagen."
Easy Way to Make a Tidy.
Take four pieces of lath ot
equal length, and fasten them
seenrely at the cornera into a .
square frame, as large aa yon -wish
the tidy to be. . Drive.
tacka into this at the corners, .
and in all four sides, one. and ,
one fourth inchei apart. . Thea
fasten one end of a ball ef
white wool on one of tbe tacks
next the corner, carry to the
one on the opposite side and
back, then back again, leaving
three threads in a place; carry .
to next aok, then proceed as
before, till your frame is filled.
Then turn it and cross tha .
warp" thus made at right an- .
gles in the same way; thea ' '.
turn your frame again and
wind the wool "cornerwise" .
excuse tbe word dividing the , ,
check squares into triangles-,
turn the frame again so aa o -

Fasten and cut off your white
wool, and with a yarn needle, .
and red wool, fasten all cornera .
where all courses crosv leav
ing several ends at all the out

from Ihe tacks. Trim tbe ,
