Poor I am, hut he Is wealth;

I am dust beneath his fee,
But in him I am complete.

MIDNIGHT AND NOONDAY.
BY ECCE FRATER.
CHAPTER XV.
Tho rapid steps of the comer
soon brought him to the door,
when ho promptly informed the
family, that Willie had been
thrown from his horse and se
riously injured, and was at that
time speechless, lying in the
house of Deacon Crocko.
That the reader may the bet
ter understand us, the boy had
been sent three miles from the
village that evening after
school, to attend to some af
fairs for Mr. L.
When this sudden, sad news
was divulged to the Uncle and
Aunt, there was hot haste about
that house for a few moments,
and both were on their way to
Mr. Crocko's.
On their arrival, they found
that Willie had revived some
what, and was able to converse.
His injury seemed to be . inter
nal, as he frequently spit out
largo quantities of blood.
The Doctor had been sent
for, and arrived shortly after
Mr. and Mrs. L. After exam
ination, Dr. Hoy remarked,that
he could not tell how serious
the injury was, as it seemed to
be produced by the force of the
fall, but hoped it would not
prove fatal.
That night, it was "mid
night," in tho heart of Mrs. Lo
renzo, as she sat beside the bed
and listened to the heavy
breathings of her idolized boy.
At times he seemed delerious,
and then lie would talk so
plaintively about the other
world, and about his Aunt and
the Parson ; that tears were of
ten rolling down the cheeks of
Mrs. Lorenzo in spite of all she
could do.
Mr. Lorenzo, soon became
weary, and went to sleep. Oth
ers did the same, and tho kind
Aunt watched the little sufferer
alone, with the good angel
vigils.
By-and-by, the boy roused
again, and seeing his kind-
hearted Aunt by him, he reach
ed out his arms and placing
thorn around her neck, said:
"Dear Aunt, have they left
you alone. You are my dear
kind friend no one so good as
you," and with these words he
pressed many a warm kiss up
on the pale face of his dear
Aunt.
"Willie," said his Aunt, "did
you rest easy during your
Bleep?"
"I guess I did, for I thought
I was living in one of the pret
tiest countries I ever saw. The
whole land was covered with
pretty flowers, trees were bur
dened with Iruit and birds were
singing songs, mingled with
words amid the groves. I saw
all the dear friends of other
years, and above all the Lord
Jesus Christ."
"Did you speak to Jesus, or
He to you, Willie?" said Mrs.
Lorenzo.
. "Yes." The' first thing he
told mo was that he had always
loved good children, and that
he loved me and heard my pray
era, and when he told mo that
he Itcard my prayers then I
shouted aloud our joy, for it dhl
not seem to me that I was
dead, and I felt that if Jesus
'heard my prayers,' then I
could have all the help I need
ed, and get to go to school, and
become a minister of the Gos
pel." "Yes, yes dear boy, Jesus
hears the prayers ,of all who
love him and pray in faith, and
Ho will give you all the need
you require in your endeavors
to be a good and useful man."
For along time, both remain
ed silent, as if engaged in
er in prayer and deep thought,
kwlwMtMrrLweiweoHwdTijV
and came blundering into the
room, rubbing his half open
eyes.
"What time is it?"
"Twenty minutes after four"
said the wife.
"La me 1 1 slop so sound that
I never woke up all this time,
and entirely forgot that the boy
had to be set up with, but then
I am not such a baby about
small matters as my little wifo"
said the warm hearted calcula
ting Mr. Lorenzo.
"I feel quite uneasy about
the result of Willies hurt, so I
did not feel like sleep," said
Mrs. L
Hallo ! Bill, wake up boy,
what about our going home?"
"Don't speak so loud hus
band, Willie is not asleep and
you will rouse the whole
house."
"What if I do, its time they
were up any how, and about
getting ready for their days
work," said our L.
Willie, now took occasion to
tell his Uncle that he was much
better and thought he could be
taken home soon.
"Soon" said the gruff, man,
do you mean a week or two
hence? You must go home
this morning, I don't propose
to pay a bill for keeping you
here for a week or two."
"Oh! husband, we must not
be too hasty about his removal
you know" replied the wife.
"I will go at any time you
see proper to take me" said the
boy.
"The physician must be con
sulted" said Mrs. Lorenzo, "be
fore I shall consent to his re
moval." "Then I'll go right off and
see what Dr. Hoy says, and I
have no doubt but what he will
decide that fresh air will be
good for the lad," said Mr. Lorenzo.
TO BE CONTINUED.
Water from Great Depths.
An apparatus has been re
cently devised in Germany for
obtaining specimens of water at
any desired depth of the ocean.
A strong, heavy vessel, entirely
closed and empty, has a valve
through which water may be
admitted, but which is only put
in motion by moans of powerful
electro-magnets connected with
a wire which accompanies the
rope by means of which the ap
paratus is lowered from the
ship. When the empty vessel,
which is in fact a plummet, has
reached the required depth, a
current t)f electricity is sent
from the battery on shipboard
to the coils below ; the magne
tism thus generated opens the
valves, and the vessel is filled
and ready to bex drawn up.
It is said, that a bar of iron
worth five dollars it is worth,
when manufactured into horse
shoes, $10 00; table knives,
$1 80 ; bottons and buckles,
$4,035; springs of watches,
$250,000.
A youag man in Allentown
opens 100 oysters in six min

swallows them as fast.
Deep Sea Discoveries.
Otie of tho discoveries made
by the deep sea soundings of
the;;; Challenger expedition,
which, arrived recently at
Benhiida from the Azores, is a
mountain ridgo which extends
froni; Greenland to the 'mouth
of the Amazon on tho coast of
Soulp America, and includes
the fwholo volcanic region of
the jlzores. This ridge is no
where more than two miles be
low the ocean level. Toward
theWst it is divided between
Eur ope and Africa by an im
mense valley from two and a
Mi thr ?e miles in tlcnth.
The valley reaches north of the
equator as far as the fifty-second
degree of latitude. If this
valley were not under water it
rould present a view of whose
niagnificence no conception can
be formed, for in tho north it
extends to the gigantic moun
tains of the Cape Verde and
the Canary Islands, the latter
of which, with the peak of Ten
eri'fle, would be 26,000 feet in
height. Maderia would com
mand from a height of 20,000
feet, a view of this valley and
another stretching toward the
Mediteranean. On the western
side of the ridge is a vast un
dulating plain, which extends
at an average depth of two and
three quarter miles to the
American coast. Bermuda,
which rises now only 200 feet
above the ocean level, is, in fact,
an isolated column 15,000 feet
high, which would overlook an
amphitheater of at least 500
miles in radius. Between the
West Indies and America, and
in the vicinities of the Azores,
the water is of uniform depth
and warmth. There was not-
much animal life found in the
great depths. The blind Crus
tacea appear to belong to the
Western hemisphere; in this
part these animals require many
eyes. A sea garnel was caught,
which, singular to relate, had
four eyes, two of which were in
the front knee-joints.
An Important Enterprise.
[From the Atchison Champion.]
J. V. Coon, Esq., of Elyria,
Ohio, owns, near Blue Rapids,
about a thousand acres of land,
all underlaid with gypsum of
the best quality. He thinks
fully a hundred thousand tons
of this article are uncovered,
and the quantity is absolutely
unlimited. Mr. Coon's atten
tion was some time ago attrac
ted to these extensive beds of
gypsum, and he determined to
test their value. He took spec
imens of the article East, and
had it examined by the most
competent men. Among others
it was examined and tested by
the managers of the Plaster of
Paris Works, at Sandusky,Ohio,
tho most extensive in the Uni
ted States, and pronounced by
them superior to any ever be
tore known in this country. It
is pronounced by competent
judges to bo equal to the mate
rial of France, from which the
article takes its name. Satis
fied upon this point Mr. Coon
sent to Bluo Rapids two .Porta
ble crushing machines, with en
gine and boiler, for manufac
turing the plaster, and has giv
en tho matter a thorough test.
The result has confirmed the
opinion of the experts and who
examined tho material and jus
tified the expectations of Mr,
Coon. He has produced speci
mens of plaster, tho quality of
which has never been excelled
either in the country or Europe.

Hints to Housekeepers.
Lemon Jelly. Take a paper
of gelatine, and let it soak in a
pint of warm water an hour,
then add a quart of boiling wa
ter and the juice of twojlemons,
and a pint and a half of sugar.
Baked Eggs. A matron
says : Beat up six eggs, one
tablespoonful of flour, six of
sweet milk; melt your butter
in the frying pan ; when hot,
turn the whole in,' well beaten
and bake in a hot oven.
,vBakeju Tomato EiuToka the m
when fully ripe, cut off a slice
from the stem side, scoop out
the pulp of the tomato, and
salt. Fill the empty shell with
the mixture, replace the slices,
put them in a shallow pan, and
bake an hour.
Cold Sauce. Four table
spoonfuls of sugar, two of but
ter. When these have been
rubbed until very white and
smooth, add the beaten white of
an egg. Flavor it and mold it
into some pretty shape.
Egg Cake. Two cups ot
sugar, one egg, a piece of but
ter the size of an egg, one cup
of sour milk, one tablespoonful
of soda, a little salt and nutmeg,
one teaspoonful of lemon, three
cups of flour ; beat the white of
egg separately, the sugar and
yolk and butter together ; bake
in a thoroughly heated oven.
Plain Doughnuts. One pint
of rich butter and milk, one
heaping teaspoonful of soda,
half that quantity of salt, three
tablespoon luls of melted lard,
flour to knead well.
Consomme. Rich broth, clar
ified, becomes consomme. It is
the best ..and., most . nutritious
food that can be given to old
people, because it is easily di-
j 1 a
gesteu, ana does not reqnire
any mastication ; it is, in ' fact,
to old people what milk is to
the infant. Consomme is beef
in a liquid state, having the
same nutritive properties. Af
ter having strained the broth;
put it back in the kettle with
(for two quarts of broth) two
onions and two carrots in sli
ces, two raw eggs, a few ounces
of chopped, lean beef ; beat the
whole well together, set on the
fire, and boil gently until clear.
The process will take about
half an hour ; then strain, and
it is ready. If it is wanted
very nutritious, use more chop
ped meat. In a preceding
nunlber we gave directions for
making broth as rich as desired.
Succotash. This is decided'
ly a favorite dish. Unfortunate
ly few people 'know how to
make it. Sweet corn and lima
beans make the epicure's sue
i a . ....a m
cotasii, but string beans are
commonly used. ' Strip "off the
the husks and silk from a dozen
ears of sweet corn, and cut tho
grains off tho cobs. If the corn
is nqt very tender, chop as for
green corn pudding. String
quart of green beans and . chop
them into half-inch lengths.
Put the corn and beans togeth
er into a quart of cold water or
milk, , cover, them .close, and
boil eritly until done. Usual
time, three-quarters of an hour,
brat it h safest to test them. A
few minutes before taking oft
the fire, add a toacupful of ta
ble butter, and salt and pepper
to taste. Stir well together.
let itsboil up, then take the suc
cotash out in a dish with as

ent, the first Devon cattle im
ported to America were a bull
and six heifers presented to
Robert Patterson, of Baltimore,
by Mr. Coke,' afterward Earl of
Leicester, in 1817. In 1835
another Devon bull was im
ported and thereafter frequent

Keeping Green Corn.
The following inexpensive
mode : of . preserving . corn for
fable use"aftef "its" "season has
passed, is suggested by an ex
perimenter: Dip the ears into
boiling water and let them re
main about two minutes ; take
them out, and when ' cool cut
the corn from the cob and dry
it, just as you would dry fruit,
and when dry put it away in
clean ' paper sacks. - By this
means one may enjoy the lux
ury of green corn at any time.
F.
Broom Corn.
The cultivation ol
broom
in the
corn has been checked
West by the cheapness of the
article, so that farmers" scarcely
obtain prices sufficient to pay
the expenses of raising it. The
late storms have also caused
serious injury to the compara
tively limited crop raised this
year, resulting in an advance of
nearly one hundred per cent on
the old stock on hand.-
How to Keep Hams.
Every season more or less
hams are destroyed by insects,
or rendered too unpalatable to
be eaten by decent people. By
following this method the in
sects can be entirely kept at a
distance, and UJs very ;imple
and within the reach of almost
every farmer in the country.
After the meat has been well
cured by pickle and smoke,
take some clean ashes, free
from bits of coal, moisten them
with a little water, so that they
will form a paste, or else just
wet the hams a little and rub
on the dry ashes. Rubbed in
thoroughly, they serve as a
capital insect protector and the
hams can be hung up in the
smoke-house or wood-chamber
without any danger of molesta
tion. .' . ' .

Preserving Green Fodder.
a
A method ot preserving green
fodder, such as turnip tops,
beet tops, or other succulent
vegetables, has been in use for
many' years ; in Europe, by
which, this green fodder is kept
in good condition 1 for six or
twelve months.' A trench two
to four feet deep is dug in a
dry ppot in the field, and the
tops of the roots, carefully gath
ered when free -from rain or
dew, are thrown into it. .They
are very compactly pressed
down, and when the pit is filled
some straw, is laid upon the
fodder and the 'earth is heaped
over Ihe whole., - In this man
ner this product, which is gen-
erally wasted in a great' meas
ure, is utilized. On one1 occa
sion the) writer saw one of these
pits opened in the Spring which
had been filled and covered up
the Fall previous.., The fodder,
which was' leaves ,'of "fiugar
beets, was as fresh to . all ap
pearance as when gathered,
and the cows to, which it was
fed ate it with avidity. Salt is
generally . sprinkled, "upop the
fodder and aids in its preserva
tion,' . . -. , ,i.
