Life: An ant which was painfully
tolling across the road with a grain of
corn observed a mouso scamper out of
a hole under the door of the grain ele
vator nearby. "At your old tricks, 1
suppose," said the ant scornfully "why
don't you work for your living as 1 d,
instead of stealing what you eal r"'
l'oor drudge, said the mouse) in a
pitying tone, "you are only lit fur a
life of labor; you have not the far see
ing genius that grasps gteat combina
tions and insures enormous prollts.
But know this that myself and two or
three other mice have formed a syndi
cate and bored a hole through tbe
bottom of the grain bin. We have es
tablished a corner In corn, and are
making more in a day than your natu
ral life. Do not complain of this, for
it is perfectly legal the corn, follow
ing tbe laws of gravitation, must fall
into our pockets." The mouse staiked
away with tbe air of one owi.ingthe

Preaching economy has become mo
notonous; yet on the farm, as else
where, waste takes more than ,'orms,
frosts And Insects. It is the worst
form of waste to prepare the land, to
manure it, to cultivate and plant, and
then leave a good part of the crop on
tbe ground. When small grain is cut
by a self-binder, properly operated, so
little grain is left on the Bold, that it
will not pay for gleaning it. But
where a reaper with rake or dropper
attachment is used, or tho grain is cut
with a cradle, gleaning is quite profita
ble, especially In the wheat Ueld. The
revolving head rake Is better than tbe
spring tooth sulky rake, as it does not
rake so close, aud while gathering up
tbe grain will take less foreign matter,
especially when the grain has been
sown on cornstalk ground, without le
movlug tbe stalks. The gleaning
should be done as soon as the grain Is
cut, as that lying on the stubble Is
rapidly damaged; even the dew and
sun bleach it, and a hard rain will beat
it down into the stubble. If tlie glean
ing is dsne at once, tbe grain will be of
as good quality as that taken from the
reaper. Tbe grain may be bound or
mowed away loose. Gleaned oats ave
best fed untbreshed. A boy in Illinois
cleared one hundred dollars by glean
ing the field, ot bis neighbors. Many
ot them allowed him the gleanings
free. This may be a hint to other boys
while most farmers will find It will pay
glean their own fields. Americau

anyone who knows the two men this
proposition has a cruel as well as ludi

The senseless effort to keep Presi
dent Cleveland from visiting St. Louis
at the time of the national encamp
ment there has died away iu a feeling
ot disgust for the few busy bodies who
were engineering the movement. In
an interview in the Cincinnati Enquir
er Senator Sherman says: "I was very
much pleased with my brother's letter
defending the President's privilege and
right to visit St. I.ou'.s at any time."
