'Pleasant on so autumn day
TI to wander far away,
Tramping thro the wood,"
are tue words of an old school song.
They are much more in accord with my
feelings than Bryant's "Melancholy
Days." Poets unnumbered have sung
of the beauties of spring, but their fancy
foils to note the joys of rainy days,
muddy walks, aud the invariable ac
companiment of spring, a "cold in the
head." Of course there is t poetry in
such common-place topics, for it is tho
sod reality, mul poets only deal with tho
ideal. Hammer is all very well, when
those around you do not complain so
much of the heat, that you grow worm j
in spite of yourself hearing them talk of
the state of their feelings and tho height
of tlie thermometer. Winter is full of
enjoyment in out-door sports, but it is
too warm in-doors. It is strange how
few people know how to keep a room at
a living heat. Ono would suppose a
body was something to bn ronsted by
hot air, and each one aVs tin opportu
nity to roast himself and everybody else.
It is not half so hard on the constitution
to freeze a little. But glorious autumn 1
Who can find one fault with that season 1
Now comes tho time for wood rumblings,
and they are. as fnshionnble as delightful.
Go one, and if you have a merry crowd,
yon will be delighted, even if you fail to
corao home ladeu with the treasures
Mother Nnur lavishly throws at your
feet Go provided wih a little basket, )
an old case-knife, a pair of scissors, a
book (an old geography is capital), and
a piece of string. You will find the
basket useful for bringing ferns home
thutyotidi ; up with tlm roots, and if ymi
have a small basket you will lv sure not
to be burdened with inoro than you can
carry. If you waut to press the ferns or
lenves, you will Hud they do much bet
ter pressed immediately, nnd then you
! nre sure of them. Very likely you will
bo too tired after your ramble, to attend
to them properly at home, and Ihelenvrs
soon curl up. Tho oe.kdeaf fern is ono
that needs immediate attention. The
woods will soon ba at their loveliest.
Dnmo Nature excels all other nrtists in
biillinucy and power of leaf painthg.
Von will find every combination of color,
nnd scarcely two alike. Here is one leaf
utill pie en, with just a dnsh of enrmine'
nt tho tip edge. Thero is auother with
jits-t the reverse color, as if nature tiied
experiments with her color brush, and
wns so well pleased Hint she left them ns
they were, without finishing them with
he; ununl brilliancy. Gather all the
prettiest leaves and put in your book,
Gather whole branches of oak leaves aud
tiny bunches of acorns. You will lluu a
ve.ricty of grmiHus, somo as delicate as
tho mist. Theso will work up well in
your winter bouquets. Thorn nre eight
or ten viiriotien of ferns growing around
hero m tho woods. Mniden hair, golden,
mule, grape-leaf, oak-leaf, adder's tongue
11 id walking-leaf ora those I can name.
Tho walking-leaf is ouly found, bo far ns
I know, on the rock over the spring nt
Auburn. This fern hns the peculiar
property of taking root from the tip oi
tho stsni striking tho soil. Over this
rock is an abundance, of golden and male
fern mid one other, whioh hns n dnrk

I do not know. Tho delicate maiden

When your book is full, tie it tightly
with the cord you have. You will find
an abundance of little, bright lenves, but
beware of tho gloriously beautiful red of
the climbing poison-oak.
It lures you
by its banuty, Lorlio like, only to pun
ish you. Hero is a good opportunity to
moralize, but I leavo yon to draw your
own moral after your ramble is over.
The beautiful waxen berries of tho bitter
sweet must bn gathered, and do uut dis
dain the glowing red pips of the wild
rose. They Mill be useful in li ihting
up your greens whmi you mnke your
home beautiful at Christmas. Take up
sonio tents with tliu- roots, ami plant
them in boxes or pota, and they will
cheer you with their greenery all winter,
when other green things refuse to live.
If you mako a fernery, you will havo a
thing of beauty to delight you. I will
be glad to give full directions to any one
who ucaircs the iniorniation. 1 wai
specially success nl with one I made two
winters ago. If yon have come to the
end of the branch In your ramble (and
that it tho only thing that will turn some
of us back), rest with your treasures be
fore you start bask. Keep your eyes
open, and you will see on abundance of
pretty wild things worth gathering. Tho
wild locust leaves ore worth gathering,
a,ud do not fail to find s rao bod straw,
with its circles of tiny leaves. As soon
as you are at home, put your book of
leaves under a trunk, so they will be
pressed at tightly as possible. It is rec
ommended to cliango tho leaves to a
iresh book occasionally, lint I do not
find it essential Tho clusters of oak
leaves must lw pressed on the wrong
side. Rub beeswax on the lenves and it
increases aud protects their brilliancy.
Thero is no end t-i the innumerable ways
you can use your treasures in tho way of
tc corntion. Don't forget your city bound
friomls, but send little boxes of collec
tions to them to civo them a taste of the
woods. Group your leaves around your
pictures, under them, nbovo thein, pin a
few on your lace curtains, form them
into words of welcome, and make lovely
transparencies 01 ferns ana leaves, me
only trouble is, not to over-do the deco
rations, for each one well done gives an
idea for another. To preserve the color
of my autumn lenves, I always varnish
them with damar varnish. The fern

If you hove never taken one of these
tramps, try it onco, aud, iny word for it,

0EATII OF AN AGED MINISTER.
Elder Timothy Ford of tho Christian
Church died nt his residence iu Middle
town on Thursday, the 17th hist., ut an
ndvancedage. Ho was one of the pion
e?r preachers of the Christian church in
tho atatc, and during his long sojuru
nmouRour peoplo endeared lumseii to
mnny hearts. He was a man of ability,
of noble aud generous qualities, an earn
est and zealous laborer iu tho vineyard
of the Lord, nnd his good work extends
over a period of nearly fifty years. Mnny
hearts will be mnde sad by the intelli
geuce of his death, aud especially umong
the churches of this district with which
the most of his life was spent. Surely
thero is laid up for him a crown mid a
mansion in the kingdom of Heaven.

found somo sixty yards down the hill.
Tho tracks of the horse indicated that he
jumped some 15 feet wheu tho rider was
thrown againet a tree on the side of the
road. He struck tho trco somo three
feet from tho ground. Tho iron weeds
growing near tho tree were bruised and
mashed into tho bark of the tree showing

a man lying in the Mad. Approaching
the spot she found Mr. Swan lying ou
