Contracts for mail carrying

terms of the contract compel
the contractors to carry the
mail matter, great or small, fur
that length of time, and the

arity of the people with the
doings of Congress and the va

public documents in the line
ot valuable reports .and sta

such terms that several capi

He was apparently asleep; and

Summer Feeding Horses.
Many farmers do not appear
to think or care about the com
fort of their horses; they will
imprison them at nights in the
stable on the hard floor, and tie
them up with a rope around
their neck, and feel them on
dry corn every meal all sum
mer with salt ouce a week.
Reader fjust 'thiuk of this
matter for a moment. Suppose
you were to work for we this
season, and I should set before
you corn bread, meat and coffee
every meal, without change
and without sail; would you
not think that I kept a poor
boarding house? Your horse
has the same opinion of you. 1
feed my horses in the following
manner: For six horses I fill a
barrel with corn, I then cover
the corn with water, adding a
handful of -salt. I feed them
corn for breakfast and feed a
cut mess of sheaf oats and bran
for dinner, with very -a little
salt added, for supper T feed
oats; occasionally I give them
a feed ol corn not soaked and
in this way 1 manage to have a
change. My horses are con
tent, they eat ail I give them;
are always ready and able to
do what is required of them. 1
do not imprison my horses in
the stable, but let them have
the liberty of the pasture, field
or stable as they desire. When
convenient, I water my horses
between meals during the hot
days of summer, but allow them
to take but little at a time

Prince Bismarck is a-remarkably
frank man. He talks to
surprising freedom, but the
iNew York World's account of
an interview with him, in
which be avowed his belief
that the Empire of Germany
would be defeated in the cod
test with Rome, is evidently
in part a burlesque. Bismarck
does not believe in the political
meddlesomeness of priests in
the name of God, but the ex
pressions he actually used
have clearly been exaggerated
and distorted with the purpose
"1 have noticed," remarks
some sensible observer, "that a
well-bred woman never hears an
impertinent remark." This is a
kind of discreet deafness which
is well worth cultivation. There

uttered by those bout as which,
if taken in at ear and thence into
the mind, will disturb the temper
and lessen the happiness, It is
not worth while to hear all the
