By the Day.
It makes a difference in the actions of
a man whether he is working by the day
or by the job. He who works by the day
is a pleasant and edifying object. Here,
for instance, is a man who has come in to
i ep&ir the eilt-lettering on your office door,
be is working by the day. - There is no
undignified haste about his movements.
He gazes upon the work laid out for him
Jith a critical eye, but he does not hurry.
He evidently has not considered the ant,
sad the busy bee he holds a contempt for.
You gaze upon his sluggish grace admir-
fngly, only your pleasure' is marred some
what by the reflection that he is working
for you, and by the day, and you - mildly
intimate that so slight a work will, of
course, soon be finished. The man gives
only a negative assent to your proposition,
and does not hurry himself. Time does
not hang heavily on his hands. He is
working by the day. He does not appear
at .all troubled by the accidental breaking,
of the glass, and the consequent expense
and annoyance. He bears up under your
misfortune with surprising grace. He sits
down and rests. He is a philosopher and
a sybarite. And, finally, when your faith
in that old proverb which claims tbat
"more haste" is accompai iid by "less
speed," is totally ruined, and the cost of
your patching has exceeded that of the
original work, he departs from yon with
the same bland demeanor and pleasant
smile a little Mephistopheliao, perhaps
which he has worn from the first. It is
very pleasant and very expensive to have
work done by the day. Amtrican Builder

Cane "Shucks" for Manure.
R. A. Lee, of Alabama, writes to the
Southern Cultivator for a plan . by whic
"cane shucks" or old cane from which the
juice has been pressed, may be composted
and made useful as a manure. The Rural
2Vio Yorker makes the following sugges
tions : ,
" If lime and ashes are applied, to
heaps of vegetable matter, they will hasten
decomposition ; but the ammonia evolved
during the process will pass off into the
air and be lost unless some kind of an
absorbent is placed over the heap. Char
coal, dried peat, or even good loam, will
answer the purpose, and some such ma
terial should always be mixed with, - or
spread over, compost heaps, whenever
lime or ashes is used to aid decomposition.
It seems strange that the 'shucks' which
accumulate around s cane mill should be
allowed to go to Waste anywhere; for
they can be readily transformed into a
most valuable manure, even without the
addition of any other material. All that
is necessary to produce rapid fermentation
and decomposition is, to work over the
heaps in warm weather, admitting air:
and if not sufficiently moist, water should
be added, as heat, air and water will soon
produce a change upon any such mass of
" The first two or three times working
over is no child's play, and it requires pa
tience and muscle; but when the mass
once begins to crumble, it wUI soon be
come soft, and as readily handled as ordi
nary barn-yard manure.
"Corn-stalks and cane-shucks decom
pose very slowly if allowed to remain un
disturbed, in large heaps; but we have
changed the most uninviting heap of corn
stalks into a soft, rich, unctuous mass of
manure in three months, at a small cost in
labor, only by merely turning it over and
keeping it sufficiently moist to insure fer
b eutation. W e would not ask for better
fc iilizing material than the cane-shucks
referred to by Mr. Lee, and they can be
made available at a small cost. We would
advise our Southern friends to try com
posting cotton seed and cane-shucks, or
castor pomace and shucks. Depending
upon concentrated, commercial fertilizers,
is a great mistake, no matter where prac
tised; for there is not a county in the
United States which does not contain,
within its own boundaries, fertiling mate
rials enough to make every acre of land
within the same area rich and fertile. This
material may be in the form of swamp
mud, muck, marl, phosphates, or in the
natural fertility of the soil, to produce im
mense quantities of the coarse or fine
grasses; but we are sure that it is there,
and it only requires skilful labor to develop
these mines of wealth. The swamps and
muck beds of our counties are far more
valuable than our gold mines, but the mass
of farmers have not, as yet, learned to use
them to advantage."
Mors than a century ago a certain Miss
Wragg died in England. She had done
nothing remarkable to render her memory
lasting, but she is sot yet forgotten. Curi
ously enough, she bequeathed a small
amount to a certain parish for charity, on
condition that the vault should be opened
every year, and ber coffin dusted. If this
was not scrupulously done, the sum was
to be given to another parish. The fidelity
of the clergymen and wardens to their
sacred trust was secured by leaving one
guinea to .the former for preaching a ser
mon, and a certain sum to the latter for a
dinner to celebrate the cheerful anniver
sary on which the vault U opened.
How to Have Good Mutton.
The sheep is a delicate feeder, and makes
one of the most delicious and digestible of
all the butcher's meats. Like most ani
mals, it improves in flavor by age, and at
tains its perfection, in most breeds, at the
age of three years, when it makes, in Dan
itl Websters language, red-mutton so
called because the gravy, though well done,
is red and of high flavor. In feeding
sheep for the luxurious table, there should
be but few together, which allows them
greater variety of food and more repose.
In large flocks the strong sheep monopo
lize the best herbs and grasses, and the
weaker ones are poor and mean meat ; be
sides, there are always restless sheep where
many feed together, and the others of tbe
flock are ill at ease whilst any are on foot.
Sheep well-grazed are better than the stall
fed, and have that "gamey" and juicy
flesh so liked by epicures. The best talile
sheep in tbe British isl-s are the small
Welsh breed, wnich have the wide range
of those mountains.
But the best sheep in the world are often
spoiled by bad butchering, and I propose
to show how this should be done. Many
persons become disgusted with, and never
eat, mutton, because of what they term
the "wool-taste." Now, a sheep well
dressed may be wrapped in the skin and
wool, as well as in the pu est linen, and
never have a "wool" flavor. The intes
tines of the sheep are, like those of all the
ruminating animals, very long and power
ful in capillary absorption ; and, if allowed
to remain in the body after death, infuse
the odor and flavor of their contents into
the meat, ard thus give that ill taste.
Everything, then, depends upon rapid
dreunna. While vet alive, the sheen
should be suspended by the hind legs, well
apart, to two pegs, or hooks, to a cross-
timber, so that the body may De easily
reached on all sides without turning it.
The butcher should be prepared, with a
sharp knife, ax, meat-saw, thread, and
water ; also with a block, or low stool, to
stand upon, if need be; for the sheep, when
suspended, is too long generally to be
easily reached in all parts. The throat
should then be cut, severing both arteries,
and the blood entirely let cut ; if Profes
sor Uergh is about, the animal may oe
knocked on the back of the head with the
Dole of the ax. before usincr the knife.
The skin should then be rapidly taken off,
at least from the parts to be cut in .taking
out the intestines, and pinned back, so as
freely to allow that operation. This fin
ished, the blood should be well washed
out by casting on the body clean water
freely. Should the intestines at any time
be broken, let them be tied up at once,
and the soiled parts well cleansed. The
body should then hang until it is well dry,
when it is ready for use. Mutton (and all
meats) never ought to be salted, if possible,
until it is ready for the cook. Salt ab
sorbs the juices, dries and preserves the
meat, but spoils the flavor. Meat should
be hung in a cool, dry place, so that all
parts may be aired. Do not allow it to
become frozen, but if frozen, it should
be used, at once, if possible. In some
parts of Mexico, beef will hang in the air
tor weeks in the warmest weather, because
of the dryness of the climate. The la
dians and hunters dry their meats with

In the first place, I have a bench three
and a-half feet long and sixteen inches
wide, two and a-half feet high ; also a box
a little larger one way than my hive, and
five inches high.. -I nail a strip of lath
across the inside, near one side, and even
with the top, edgewise, for the hive to rest
upon. My hives contain about two thou
sand cubic inches. My hive is high enough
to contain the honey caps in the chamber.
I sometimes put some pieces of comb in the
top of the under part ; this entices them to
stay and commence work ; but the passages
to the honey caps must be covered up by
turning the caps over. Apart of my hives
have frames, and in these I put comb.
So having all ready, I put the hives
in the shade, and wait for the bees to issue
As soon as they commence coming out
I take a few sprigs of lemon balm (bee
balm the small flowered, not the balm
with long, red flowers,) and rub the hive
inside, and as soon as they alight I set my
bench in the shade, as near them as con
venient, and put my box on one end and
the hive on the other. Then I take the
box on one arm and hold it under the bees,
and with the other hand shake them into
it, then set them on the bench and place
the hive over them, a little corner-wise, to
give them air, and they will generally o
up readily. But if some lingert 'n, a stick

they had a plaoe picked out and would go
to it." Not so fast; I had one large swarm
Come out that way, and I put them back in

in July $2 to f 3, and who can aflord to

" But Lhave another way of hiving, some
easier than the first named. I have a pole
ten feet long ; on this I tie some branches
from a tree two feet long, and put it in the
shade, and when they begin to come out I
take some balm and pound it, and put it
on the branches, and hold it up among
them, and most of the time they will come
to it ; but this requires practice. By this
mode of hiving I save ail my swarms."

old woman. No sooner, did they touch
the ground than they sprang up again into
all manner of beautiful flowers, more beau
tiful a hundred times than any lilies, or
roses, of jasamines that she had had ever
seen on earth.
As sho . stood admiring . the beautiful
signi, sn turned and saw the very same
person by her side that had been sowing
grass-seed on the snow. JJut now he was
clothed radiantly, as if the brightest clouds
had. been, made int garments; and his
face, that was beautiful before, seemed to
her more beautiful than :&1L the flowers.
Then he looked very kindly upon her, and
said: " My dear child, do you not see that
only here and there a seed fell to the
ground and came up, but that all the rest
went through and were planted in heaven-?
So it is with kindness among men. The
earth catches a few, only, of the seeds of
Kindness sown, but all the rest go through
and are planted in Heaven; and so noth
ing good is ever lost"
At this he laid his hand upon her head,
and such a thrill ran through her body
that she sprang and awoke. Her mother
it was who had "touched her, saying,
"Come,. Florence; it is morning. The
birds are calling you.- Come." XL W.

A Talk with My Boys.
I have two minds about you, boys. I
mean yon older ones, from ten to fifteen,
or thereabouts. Sometimes I meet you
on the streets, and you bow to me pleas
antly, and your faces look to bright and
manly, that I say to myselt; " What grand,
noble men they will make !" Or I see you
at my home, or in your own homes, and
fou are gentlemanly, and thoughtful, and
feel proud of you, and I know your
mothers do, too. And then, perhaps the
very next day, I see you shouting and
laughing at a poor dog that is fairly frantic
with terror at some dreadful thing tied to
his tail; or, worse yet, I see you abusing
and tyrannizing over some unlucky little
mate, who dosen't happen to be as strong
as you are, and can only resent your abuse
by impotent rage, which seems to be vast
ly amusing. It is ruch fun to oelt a toor.

a little fellow head foremost into a snow
drift, or catch him by the ends of his
scarf and whirl him aronnd until he is
half strangled, and then let him drop like
a bullet to the ground. It is tveh fun to
rin off with his bull ; to split his top with
a well-aimed "peg;" to tend his marbles
flying into a dirty puddle; to make, in a
thousand ways, his life such a burden to
him that he never goes out upon the street
without looking nervously around to see
if you were in eight -.- - - .
I tell you, boys, when I see such things
as these and I have seen them for years
and yearB--thert'-' I change" my mind, and
think you must have, somewhere in vour
natures, a streak of 00 wardioe, and rufflta
ism, and meanness. - Meanf Why, there
are no words in the English language
strong enongh to tell how mean it seems
to me. You, who ought to be the defend
ers of everything, weak, and unfortunate,
and defcnccles.', whose , very ' strenglh
should make you; genlle, and wo should
scorn anything -so cowardly as finding
pleasure In seeing others surfer, J wish 1
could make you feel how datttardly -it . all
is, and how far below even the beginning
of a true manhood. J ' ' '

which the boldest hardly dare transgress,
and which is all very well, as far as it goes.
The greatest bully on the playground
would not venture deliberately to assault
and flog a little fellow half, his own size.
The chivalry of all his mates would be
reused to defend the .weaker, and the
chances are that the big tyrant would be
soundly thrashed. But these smaller ty
rannies the boys' code of morals do not
touch ; and so, little by. little, he grows
careless of the sufferings of others, and
seeks bis own amusement regarrllcssof the
pain of such insignificant acimalraa dogs,
kittens, and small hoys. Little Corporal. .

The Northern Pacific Railroad.
BY SCHUYLER COLFAX, VICE-PRESIDENT OF
THE UNITED STATES.

head of twelve hundred miles of Lake

and as near to it by water ss Chicago a

Dulu'.h, the initial point of tbe Northern
Pacific Railroad. The creat work, so
magnificently endowed by the Govern
ment, is already being pushed rapidly
westward, under its energetic controllers;
and before the snow flies next fall, it will
be completed to the western line of Min
nesota, where it crosses the Rod River of
the XtGrtli which rune . northward to
Lake Winninee and one-eighth of its
distance to the Pacific Ocean will have
been accomplished. Commencing, too,
ihis season on its western linej the work
will be prosecuted from both directions,
and long before the nation celebrates its
Centennial Anniversary of Independence,
the Lakes will be united by iron bands

Nor is - this all. Development js the
great duty or the republtcV after all its re
cent trials. Resources af a the gift of the
Creator. Developing them depends on
the work or man. Along the line of the
Northern Pacific Railroad, as it follows
up the water-courses, the Missouri and
the Yellowstone on this side, and descends
by the valley of the Columbia on the
other, a vast body of agricultural land is
waiting for the plow with a climate al
most exactly the 6a me as that of New
York, ekcept that, with less snow, cattle,
in the larger portion of it, can subsist on
the open range in winter. Herat If cli

and almost inaccessible portion of our con
But this road is Tortunatd alsd in its
pathway across the two ranges of moun
tains which rested so severely the Pacific
Railroads built on the central line, and
the overcoming of which reflected such
will-destrvcd honor on their energetic
builders. . At the Deer Lodge Pass, in
Montana, where it crosses the Rocky
Mountains, its altitude above the sea is
3,500 feet less than the Union Pacific Rail
road at Sherman, which is said to be the
highest point at which a locomotive can
be found in the world..1 And on the Pacific
side of "the continent it is even more
fortunate. From Arizona up to the Arc
tic Circle the Columbia is the only river
which has torn its war through that
mighty range, the Andes of North Ameri
ca, which in California is known as the
Sierras, but which in Oregon changes its
name to the Cascades. Nature has thus
provided a pathway foi the Northern Pa
cific road through these mountains, the
scaline of which on the other line, at an
elevation of over seven thousand feet (a
most wonderful triumph of engineering),
cost the Central Pacific Company millions
of dollars, and compelled them, tor seventy
miles, to maintain a grade of over 100 feet
to the mile twice the maximum or the
Northern Paci'c at the most difficult
poiut in its entire route.
. It is fortunate, also, in its terminus on
the Pacific coast No one who has not
been there can realize the beauty of Puget
Sound and its surroundings. One hun
dred miles long, but so full of inlets and
straits that its navigable shore line meas
ures seventeen hundred and sixty miles.
dotted with. lovely islets, with gigantic
trees almost to the water s edge, with sate
anchorage everywhere, and stretching
southward, without shoals or bars, from
the Straits of Fuca to the capital and cen
ter of Washington Territory, it will be
magnificent entrepot for the commerce of
the grandest ocean ot tne world, tne
Pacific. The Land Grant of the
United States exceeding fifty millions of
acres in the winter-wheat region or our
nation (ten times as large as the area of
Massachusetts), is doubtless sufficient Tor
the completion of the road ; but besides
this, millions or private means are already
invested in it The bonds based on the Land
Grant and a mortgage on the road itself
in addition, are being soid as rapidly as
the money is needed; and, as an invest
ment, yielding about eight per cent per
year in currency, rank already with the
best class of railroad securities. And
thus the good work will go on with un
checked step to Its nnal consummation,
carrying the blessings of settlement de
velopment civilization and Christianity
with it in its progress, and literally caus
ing the wilderness to blossom as the rose.
M. De Fosville, an eminent meteorol
ogist, endeavors to show why an increased
a'mospheric pressure generally accompa
nies fair weather, and a diminished pres
sure wet According to his theory, the
dry winds come from the north or north
west, and hence, traveling from a cold re
irion. the air has a tendency to descend,
and, therefore, to increase the pressure of
tbe atmosphere, ss shown by the rising of
tbe barometer, on the other hand, winds
laden with moisture usually come from
the south or wuthwest consequently
causing a diminished pressure, and a fall
of the barometer.
