JOIIN G. WfflTTJER,
Tho Famous Quakor Poot nnd His
He Passed Away nt the Ripe Ago of
Eighty-Four at aa He Had
Lit nl Incident In Hit
John O. Whittlcr's latter years had
been a beautiful Ideal of old ape. Lonp
ago ho laid aside tho heavy cares of hfo
to reap tho reward of his labors for
mankind, and, beloved of a nation and
tho entire English-speaking race, he
waited patiently tho summons to his
final home. It had been his custom of
late years to spend his summers at Oak
Knoll and his winters at his homo in
Amesbury, among tho books ho
so dearly loved. His birthplace, near
Haverhill. Mass., still stamls, only a
llttlo altered from what it was in 1S07.
A farmer's son, born at a timo when
New England farm life was more frugal
than it is nowadays, he had none of tho
opportunities for culture which Holmes
and Lowell enjoyed in their youth. His
parents were intelligent and upright
peoplo of limited means, who lived in
tho simplicity of the Quaker faith, and
there was but little in his early surroundings
td encourage and develop a
literary taste. Whittier's only school
instruction was at a district school nnd
afterward at tho Haverhill academy,
where ho paid for ids tuition by work
done out of study hours. Hut ho began
to rhyme almost as soon as ho was
able to read. His fathur frowned upon
his efforts, which for a long timo were
kept secret, but his sister had faith in
lils work nnd encouraged it. One of his
earliest poems, "The Exile's Departure,"
she sent without his knowledge to
the Newburyport Free Press, signing it
with his initial, "V., Haverhill, Juno 1,
1820." Tho publication of this poem
led to tho acquaintance nnd friendship
of William Lloyd Garrison, then the
A - yuk I
JOII.V OHEKNLUAF WIlITTIKIt.
editor of the paper, a friendship which
lasted and increased until death ended it.
After this it was not long before
Vhitticr's household lyrics gave him
6uch a hold on the popular heart as,
later, in the struggle for emancipation,
made him a power in the land.
1 1 is unnecessary to quote from works
so familiar to almost ercrj reader, but
sufficient to mention such legends as
"Skipper Ireson's Ride. "The Witch's
Daughter." "Mary Garvin, "Memories,"
"The Pluymate" und "Maud Muller."
Probably the most popular quotation in
poetry is tho couplet from "Maud Mullen"
For of nil sad word of tongue or txm
The saddest are these: "It might bate been."
Despite his advanced years he was
two years older than Tennyson and
twelve ij'ears the senior of Wult Whitman
ho was until recently sturdy and
active, and tho most charming personality
in the world of letters. His mental
powers were keen and acute to the
last. He gave but little timo of late to
literary effort, his eye being dimmed
and his hand unsteady His latest literary
production was a poem in the Atlantic
to Dr. Holmes, and the last verse
ho wrote was on tho occasion of Dr.
Holmes' recent birtlwlay.
Mr. Whittier never married. Hetween
his sister Elizabeth and himself there
existed tho rarest and most delicate
love nnd friendship which, doubtless,
had no llttlo to do with the poet's inspirations.
His home was broken up nt
her death and his heart suffered in tho
same misfortune its greatest shock.
His niece came to him at the death of
his sister and always ?rovc to make!
llmt groat loss as little felt as possible.

It was while returning homo from
Europe In 1S32 that IJmma Willard
wrote tho famous ballad; "Kocltcd in
the Cradle of the Deep." In midocean
a tcrrifio storm hot in nml the frail ship
was tossed about by tho waves. Tho
passengers were all badly frightened,
except Miss Willard, who bvunied to
undergo tlio wholo experience witii a
feeling of gratitude. Soon ' after the
storm had abated she appeared in the
main cabin nnd read tho first verses of
the ballad. The due tie Choiseul was
among the passengers anil ho went into
ecstasies aliout tho piece, lie prevailed
upon Miss Willard to finish it. She did
so, whereupon tho duho set tho words
to music, but tlio air is not tlio familiar
one known now. Emma W'lard wrote
many other poems, but none over be-
came so populnr as this one.
New I'iivIiik Materlnl.
A new material for paving is now
being introduced in London. It is composed
of granulated cork and bitumen
pressed into blocks, which aro hard
liko bricks or wood paving. Tho
special odvnntagu of tlio material lies
in its elasticity. When used for pavement
it gives a soft tread which Is exceedingly
pleasant, recalling tho feeling a
of a carpet.
A law passed in England in 1750 to
the effect that at parties "ladies must
not get drunk on any pretext whatever,
and ccntlemen not beforo nino o'clock."
One of the Finest Kintnplr of Ancient
Sl Oswald's church at Nether Peover,
Cheshire, is one of the old architectural
treasures of England. It is considered
the finest exnuiplo of ecclcsinstieal
black nnd white architecture extant.
It is entirely formed of oak and plnster,
and points to a time when oak trees
were almnilnnt 111 n. district whom flmv

no damsel was fitted to bo the wife of a
Cheshire farmer unless she could lift
this great cover up with one hand. Tho

but dry rot is setting in in part
of it- One of the oak columns is encircled
with two rows of shelves, which

There is a fine monument to Sir Geoffrey

civil wars. On Chester walls tho tower

Howton Moor, a combat wliich had
some verv weighty consiliences. During
the battle, as wo learn from Pennant,

the royal cavalry were destroyed, which
put an end to Ids majesty's project of
joining Montrose, who was then in force
in Scotland. Shakcrley's mural monument

The advocates of nursing as a profession
for women have a serious statement
to meet with in tho figures of in
Prof Tyndall, who claims that an ordinary
woman of is in every
way in a better physical condition than
hospital nurse of twenty-five. The
sacrifice made by a woman entering the
profession is virtually half a life, according to
to Ids belief.

TTcmt to Get tlio .'Mint nnd tho Out
If tho fall pigs nro to eomo in during
September, tho most desirablo month,
the work must lo attended to oarly
enough in the to mako calculations
accurate. It is always lettor to
have them furrowed in September than
later, owing to tho fact that they can
then get an early start in growing to
tho cold of winter. Fall piga can lo
mndo profitable, hut in order to do this
system and method must bo adopted. If
in tho spring they do not weigh much
moro thiiu in tho fall, tho cost of wintering
them will hardly bo returned by tho
sninll additional weight. Cut when they
get ii good start in tho fall, and their
growing kept up right through tho winter,
thoro is ovident gain and proilr.
The sows must bo kept and wintered at
any rate, and with a little economy tho
increased cost of wiutoring a few litters
would not le much.
Fall pigs can Imj lnnrkotcduino mouths
from their birth, nnd if they are not
ready in this timo they havo not been
projierly fed and wintered. This cannot
bo done, however, if a Into start is obtained
in tho fall, for tho cold weather
will so hamper tho ones that tlioy
cannot grow thriftily. Thoro will bo a
sheer waste then nnd lulsor lost.
Tho young pigs should learn to eat
well beforo cold wonthor, and they
should bo accustomed to soino regular,
chenp, hut strengthening, diet. They
should hnve comfortable but economical
quarters. If tho troublo to give them
good quarters and food is not to ho
taken it in bolter not to breed for fall

however, tl er is nothing equal to corn
to lay tho fat on. The pigs should U I
weaned thoroughly, and then put ujon a
system of muscle and frninumakiug food
lwforo tho fattening food is foil to them.
Lute in tho winter and early in tho
spring tho corn may bo fed in quantity,
for by that time if tho pigs havo grown
properly they will havo largo, strong

fact is too much fat is genorally

were :i,2.)0,:t."!l, mnking a weekly aver-ago
of 02,300. Out of tho aggregated
receipts it is eitunated that thero were
1,000,000 or thereabouts of Texas,

cattle, and ulKiut 1500,000 northern range
cattle, tho remainder 1 ,9r0,3o9 being
Tho majority of Texas cattle aro fattened
iqiou what may bo termed public
lands, which are divided in ownership by
railroad companies who leaso to
ranchmen at front four to five cents
per acre per uniinni. A very largo portion
of laud UM'd for grazing purposes
Texas is owned by cattlemen. Tho
northwestern range cattle aro largoly
fattened upon publio lands, but cattlemen
own a considerable portion of land
which they occupy. Cattle can bo put
