The Amateur Fire Brigade.

Mr. Boliuk ovvns and rune a cooper
shop iu Detroit, and as he keeps a
dozen men at work he is bound to
have his Bhop run on "system." The
other day he was reading a newspaper
article in regard to the prevention of
conflagrations. ; The urtioie ad"L?ed
all employers to lay out a regular pro
grarao as to what should be dime when
a fire was discovered in the shop, and
drill his hands until they understood
\K He bought fifty feet of hose fur
the penstock, detailed a man to use it
Iii case of fire, and then instructed
eacli other man and boy just .hat
they should do when an alarm was
given. One * as to roll out barrels,
auo'.he ? o save tools, another io throw
stives through n window, and each
one knew exactly what to jump for.
ThiB was all right, and Mr.Bolink
bad a good mind to cancel his insur
ance policies and depend on his local
fire brigade. Before taking this step,
however, itoccurred to him to give hi j
pogrnmme a trial. Ho had a little
curiosity to see if bis employees would
spring to their posts according to in
structions, and he studied out a plan.
One morning ho passed up stairs, kick
ed a pile ofsh .vings together on an
old picco of zinc, tot ched a match to
tbcm, and the next minute run down
stairs crying out:
"The shop is on fir?! Fire! fi ,c!"
The man who was to use the hose
grabbed it up, threw it out of the win
dow, and jumped after it, shouting
"fire!" until he was heard tbrec blocks
oil. The man who wots to save the touh
threw an adz and hit-Mr. Botink in
the back, and then hit him agaiu with

on the floor the man who was to save
the ready-made work rolled five pork
barrels over him, kicked in the heads

through the roof, the boys yefiiug

calling to "git tlum hose around hyar,"
: and to "play lier up to eighty-five,"
and he got to the door and shouted:
\ "Hold on, gentleman, there is no

1 "Gitout'n tho way !" cried the pipe
man; "yere'g }*er mi eral water!"
' "Ii'? only a joke, gentlemen; there
' is no" ? Air. Bolink was shouting,
when the stream of water lilted him
over the barrels out of the back door,
where he sat down on a broken shave
horse until his coopershop had been
filled with water, and the bhnvings
had burned out. During the after
noon the next day his whole force
were engaged in emptying barrels,
wringing out draw-shaves, hanging
broad axes up to dry, and otherwise
getting the shop on a working basis.

Killing Cabbage Worms.
Every year we get a new batch ot
remedies lor the cabbage worm?or
rather, we get a rehash of the old reme
dies, and every year after try ing bite or
more of them, we all go back to the
oldest remedy of all, the thumb and
fingor. "Try again," however, is a
go >d motto, so wo now give, one nwro
"certain caro." It is given by a cor
respondent of tho New York Tribune,
and is this : "In June," he says "in
going through iny early cabbage, I
found one completely covered w th the
worm, Immediately I obtained a hand
ful of bvan and sprinkled it over the
head. The worms began to pquirm
and fall off the cabbage, and wher>
ever tho bran touched them they seem

worm I sow tho bran. ? Somo seasons

easily tried: Fosslbly, it may he tho
