MR. FITZ-HUMES' EXPERIMENT.
Mb. AuQrBTra Fitz-Huites sat In his
luxurious bachelor establishment on
B street, and Dondered deeply. The
iabject of his cogitations was a wife, or,
rather, how to ret one. There were enough
youne ladies who would be glad to bless

A furious pull of the bell-cord brought
ua housekeeper to the room in a hurry.
" Pack ud your traps, Mrs. Ashfield'
he exclaimed, abruptly; " for I am going
to close the house."
It was rodent he had come to some con
"Shut the house, Mr. Fitz-Humes!'
ejaculated the housekeeper, almost be

such a thing has not occurred since yur
lamented uncle looK possession nve-ana-forty
years ago !"
"That makes no difference, ma'am; Fm
master here now, and I shall close it for
the present. Meanwhile your pay can

yon consider indispensable. Have you no
relatives you wish to wait? he inquired.
That settled it. The profier of con

Three days later, Mr. Augustus Fitz
Humes was safely domiciled in a quiet
boarding-house, and shortly afterwards he
began to sell his diamond rings, and seals,
and other paraphernalia of fashionable
life, as well as dress himself in plainer
clothes. A rumor that his property had
been lost through an unlucky speculation
was soon afloat.
He lost friends rapidly. Twos and
threes they ceased to know him as he met
them on the street He only laughed and
snapped his fingers at them behind their

would not have felt like laughing.
Then came the time when this circle of
acquaintances got narrowed down to three.
But three of all his former friends still
clang to him, true in adversity. It is
wonder that he grew misanthropic.
Oat upon the street, one day, he met a
carriage containing some of his former ac
quaintances, who had been absent from the
city since he closed his house. He thought
they would not notice him, but each in
mate of the carriage bowed politely, as of
He was mistaken. That night the own
er of the carnage came to see him.
"Rather close quarters, my friend," he
said, as he took a calm survey of Augus
tus s not very pretentious surroundings.
" Pretty dose, that's a fact," said Mr.
j itz-riumes, icily. J3ut since l lost my
pioperty, of which I suppose yon haven t

abruptly, and that is why I came. I

" Ahem ! Well, I will think of it But
It is a long way to my boarding-house.'
" Deuce take your boarding-house ! Yon
can board in my family as a well as a
sort of guest, you know."
Augustus looked him over closely.
Bueben Stanly was a wealthy man very
wealthy, he was called and in his face
there was nothing to warrant the sus
picion that he had learned Augustus's
secret, and wished to curry favor, aiding
him while under an apparent cloud: so
that idea was speedily dismissed. Of

why he had not noticed Nellie Stanley be-

notwithstanding the wide difference in
their positions, and treated him as cordial-
ly more cordially, he thought than be-1
fore the change in his fortunes. He
would not have been human had he not
Jjarned to love her.
The climax came when she gave a grand
party. Then, before the elite of the city,
she did not hesitate to receive attentions
from him, on which but one construction
could be placed. He thoutrht her ouite a
heroine, and asked no further proof that
sue coma love mm.
The next morning they met in her
father's library, where he had waited to
" Nellie," he said, as soon as the usual
courtesies had bee l exchanged, " I come to
you this morning to learn my fate. I
know the difference in our positions, and
would not urge you only let your heart

She blushed prettily, and seemed con

How to Walk Well.
It seems an easy enough matter to walk,
and yet very few ever learn how to do it
properly. One can reckon among his ac
quaintamces very many fine-looking men
and women, but, perhaps, not one of the
enure numoer is a good walker. The an
cient poet tells now tbe goddess was
known by her walk, but that distinguish
ing mark of exalted birth seems to hare
passed away with the old mythological
days. We talk ot lordly port and queenly
bearing, but such scions of royalty as
have visited our shores seem to have very
little that is regal in their personal car
riage. We are not without fine specimens

often disenchanted when we see these Ve-
nuses and Adonises moving about There
is no real reason for this unseemliness of
motion. Men and women are particular
enougn aDout their dress, but they sham
ble, trot or waddle along without much
apparent regard for the appearance they
make. Nine-tenths of us, however, are
dependent on our legs for transportation,
when we desire to move from place to
place, and might, if we chose, make this
halt involuntary action of walking con
duce very materially to our bodily health
One of the secrets of good walking is to
be able to balance the b jdv easily, first on
one foot and then on the other, and it is
ior this reason that recruits ior the army
are first Instructed in the balance step.
When the soldier has learned to stand
steady on one foot, he can then walk with
out swaying, and preserve that steadiness
in marching which is always a mark of
well-drilled troops. So, if civilians wish
to learn to walk as well as soldiers, they
must, like them, first learn something of
tne mysteries of balancing, Hat It is not
an easy thing to stand steady on a narrow
sole with a small heel, and this is just the
difficulty with the walking of fashionable
people. The sandaled feet of those an
cient beauties, whose forms have come
down to us preserved in marble, are beau
tiful in their unrestrained naturalness, and
very unlike those of modern belles, or
beaux either, for the matter of that Dio
Lewis advises girls who want to walk well
to wear "broad shoes with low heels,"
and " to keep their chins close to their
necks," and although books and lectures
have been written on the subject we be
lieve the whole story is comprehended in
these directions. With low heels and
broad soles it is not difficult to balance the
body, while by drawing in the chin the
shoulders are naturally thrown back, the
lungs given luu opportunity to expand.
and the bead carried erect We cannot
now dwell upon the influence which an
erect carriage has upon the health, even
were such an argument necessary, but by
acting on the above hints with regard to
wearing broad shoes and holding in the
chin, any person who is not deformed may
easily improve his style of walking, and
perhaps acquire an easy and graceful car
nage. .Fashionable boots and high heels
must be discarded, or it is useless to make

A Fish Story.

as being loaded down with any great
amount of truthfulness. We are about to

of this city had sent to him. bv a friend
from Buena Vitta, a pickerel caught in the

fellow, this pickerel, was. stretching ont

the vicinity of 30 pounds. The gentleman
was, of course, delighted, and, as any body
else would have done, he sent the pickerel
home with instructions that it should be
cooked and served up in style. But in pre
paring his fish-ship for the table a dilemma
arose, isot a pot or a kettle in the entire
kitchen establishment could be found
large enough to hold him, and, as a last re
source, the boiler was brought out onlv to
find that the pickerel was too long by about
foot and a half to go in that In this ex-
tremity the idea of cooking him whole was
aoanaoned, and nrst his head and then his
tail was cut oft when the discovery was
made that another fish reposed inside of

and so the contents of the boiler were pitch

theory advanced by our most learned and
servants is that fish No. 3 was
first to spy out and gobble the minnow
which was attached to the hook. He
found himself fast, and then fish No. 2 with
belly that yearned for something nice and
tender, came straggling that way. He
spied the prize, and swallowed it down
only to be gobbled up in time by the mam-

The Ideal Farmer.
The New Tork Evening Pott describes
the ideal farmer in tbe following terms
First of all, he should be a healthy,
honest, scrupulous man a man whom hia
neighbors will tnis-t, and in whom all with
whom he deals will place implicit confi
dence. Such a character, coupled with roJ
bust and hearty good health, would be the
best bail ot a young larmer s stock in
trade. Then, again, he should be thorough
ly versed in the details of farming as an
When and how to plow, to sow, to hoe,
to harvest, to garner, and to sell ; how to
keep his land improving in richness and in
tilth ; how to buy, how to breed, how to
feed, how to grow, and how to sell his live
stock ; how to drain land, build fences, lay
out fields, arrange and construct fitnn
buildings, make roads, and manage all
kinds of farm machinery; how to manage
the dairy, from the settiag of the milk to
the marketing of the products. All this
and much more should be learned not
parrot-fashion, but so that the knowledge
will become as intimate as an instinct, and
be always ready in any emergency.
Underlying all this should be a know
ledge of the science of agriculture the
"reason why" of all this work, so far. at
least, as the present state of agricultural
knowledge makes possible ; vegetable phys
iology, that is, the construction of plants,
and the manner in which they form their
growth and perpetuate their species; vege
table chemistry, or the composition of va
rious parts of plants, and the different
composition of the same parts at different
stages of growth ; vegetable nutrition, or
the sources from which the plant obtains
its food, and the manner in which the food
is assimilated ; the chemistry and mechan
ics of the soil ; the manner ia which it is
influenced by growing and by decaying
vegetation, by the action of frost, of water,
of air, and of the various chemical agents ;
why wet land should be drained, and why

The Use of Glue.
A correspondent writes to the Coach
makeri Journal as follows :
To do good gluing, the work must be
well fitted. We use a scratch-plane and
file, in titling work for gluing. The shop
must be warm, the parts to be glued well
warmeo, anu a kettle oi good glue in readi
ness, well cooked, and brought to the
proper consistency. Badly-tempered glue
is one great point of taiiure. If the glue
be too thick or too thin the work is ill
done. It is most frequent! used too thick.
In gluing panels for carr.age work, etc,
the work should be well run over a few
times with the glue brush, until the pores
of each part are well filled, and if the
work be well wanned, the glue hot and of
the right thickness, the first coatings will
irequeniiy strike in or be absorbed by the
pores of the wood.
This striking into the pores is what

it in getting everything ready and at hand
before you put on your glue. Use nothing
but the best glue. If we do a bad job of

job at best and will give out sooner or
later, n hen glue joints open they begin

Economy in Feeding Hens.
Tee raising of esea and chickens hn
become quite an important part of the
farm. Indeed, many residents of suburban
cities devote a part of their homestead to
their use ; and dabblers in fancy stock often
find, greatly to their chagrin, that the cost
of feeding them far exceeds the ordinarv
amount paid out for poultry and eggs for
the table ; but we have learned to feed ours
so mat me eggs and poultry, in which we
delight, are a source of revenue, rather

Christening a New Town.
The people of the thriving village of
uroton junction, juass having outgrown
their village bounds and become a town,
petitioned the Legislature of the State, and
the village of Groton Junction became the
town of Atxr. named after Dr. J. C.
Ayer, a name familiar with every house
hold in the country. Not long since, the
people of Ayer gathered en matte to
celebrate the important event, and the
sew town was christened amid general re
joicing. Upon the occasion Dr. Ayer was
present, as well as many distinguished
gentlemen of the State; and, when the
Doctor was introduced, he responded as
