Some Wastes in our Farming.
It is an admitted fact hy many wlio
owii i.ibd iu these days that it is iiard
work to get fair returns ln:a it. I lie;ir
many fanner say tliat if we can inakt
a living from our farms wj alia II t
KaUsfW. Many complain that thi-y
cannot do that. All who are familiar
with the subject know that at no time
within the past twenty years nas farm
produce sold so low as ui the past two
now is how we are to farm in order to
pay our debts, lucat-ourfaniili-s. and
have the ordinary comforts of life. J u
view of these facts, it is well for us to
look around our farms and nee if we
are making the most of our opportu
nities. 1 have found out in my own ex
perience tliat in no business are thre
jwmany wastes as in fariiiinz. So
business can thrive unless details are
attended to. The question of prolit in
a large manufacturing establishment
often depends on a proper management
of the w aste of that establishment, and
were our manufacturers to do busi
ness in the way many of our farmers
do, it would only be a short time e
fore the prollu would Ijc lust- The
fact s, that were not nature indulgent
to those who setk her favors, many
farmers would be without a calling in
life. One of the greatest wastes on a
farm is the waste of labor. W e un
dertake to accomplish too much; to
cultivate too much land ; we spread
our efforts over too much surface.
What would be the thought of the
man who attempts to paint lus house
with a pint of paint? This only illus
trates our efforts. Having land in
abundance, we think we must culti
vate it all, either in raising crops that
do not pay, or which we canuot take
care of elL The result in many
cases Is tliat we are behind in our
work and cannot catch up. Many far
mers waste their efforts on two hun
dred acres of land, while if the s;ime
were done on tifty acres the result
would be profit In this particular
waste I am certain there is an aston
ishing loss in New England. There
is another waste on many of our
farms, ad that Is p-jor stock.
There are inanv cows kept that do
not pay for the hay they eat. It
may be they are naturally poor; or;
have grown old in the service. While
in a dairy of twentv cows there are
some tliat pay well, still we find
that there are usually some carried at
a loss and the prolit from the good cows
is lost in tliat wav. "The lean kins
eat up the fat fcine." In this con
nection a great loss is occasioned to
many by a want of projier care.
Cows kept on bog hay, and wint
ered on the south side of a stack
watered at some slough hole, or even
stabled if allowed to lie on their ma
nure without ventilation, cannot be ex
pected to make good butter, or much
of it It Is often cheaper to buy lum
ber and nails and hire a carpenter
than to buy grain. I'oor stock, with
joor hay, makes ior maniin', and he
who keeps them will grow poor. An
other preat waste is poor uls and a
lack of good ones. It might do in the
days of our ancestors to plough with
the old wooden plough that scratched
the surface of the soil, and harrow
with the old A harrow that turned the
turf back again. Then the
principal tool was a hoe, and
it was necessary to chop a hole
in which to put seed; chop the grass
from around the bill, and turn over the
ground by the hardest kind of labor in
older to make a crop grow. That kind
of labor lias all gone by, and the f armor
who puraists in cultivating the soil in
that way will find his sons all "go west."
Good tools maan lws labor hihi better
cultivation with letter itojh. It is
chear to do it well, and the tr; is
certainly more than half belter. Xo
farmer who has them would be- will
ing to go without a mowing machine
and h'irse-rake, as they will g-t the
grass faster and better. Then why go
without good ploughs. s:iiootliin har

A Big Baby.
The largest infant at birth of which
there is any authenticated record was
born in Ohio on the 12th of last Janu
ary. The new-born boy was twenty
three and three-quarter tiouuds in
weight (the ordinary weight being
about six pounds), and thirty inches iu
height (the ordinary height being
about twenty inches). The circum
ference of the'head was nineteen inches,
and the foot was five and a half inches
iu length. Six years ago the same
woman became the mother of a child
eighteen pounds in weight and twenty
four inches in bight The size and
weight of the babe, though extraordi
nary, are proportionate to the size of
the iarents. The mother, Mrs. M. V.
Rates, of Xova Scotia, is seven feet
and tiin? inches high, and the father, a

short ride. Their direction happened
to be up the placid Maumee, and on
the banks of this stream the subject of
marriage was broached. I he youthful
lover was then impressed with the
thought that he mu4 either return

went to IMiance, from whereby dif
ferent roads they reached JonesvHle,
Mich. Here they repaired to the house
of Rev. Mr. Corson the Episcopal cler
gyman and were joined in the holy
bowls of matrimony. They remained
at Jonesville over night and were
about to tike up their route to Fort
Edwards, the home of young Wait
when a series of circumstances (he
calls them blunders changed their
course, and for the time being their
The reverend clergyman who hod
performed the marriage ceremony
telegraphed to Dr. Jones the circum
stances of tiie marriage, and Wait re
ceived a dispatch from the doctor to
the effect that as they were Catholics,
lie wanted they should return to To
ledo, anil x: married by a Catholic
priest They accordingly returned,
which wits, as Wait said last night, a
foolish thing for thein to do. They
arrived in Toledo about ' o'clock iu
the afternoon, and repaired at once to
the residence of the bride's father.
Arriving there, Ada was unceremo
niously taken by her loving papa from
the presence of her husband, and con
veyed to her room, where, it is said,
she is now eonlined, nearly crazy. .See
ing that it would be useless to try to
talk anything like sense into the doctor
at that time. Wait went to his room at
the Jioody House, and waited until
evening. He then secured the service
of Sergeant Xohl. and proceeded to the
house to claim his wife. He says that
the Sergeant would not go in, and so
he boldly entered himself. He was so
unfortunate as to tind present, not only
the doctor, but his son Will, and
Harvey Scribner, jr. A tumult at
once occurred, and a crowd gathered as
if by magic, among them four blue
coated guardians of the peace. Wait
claims tliat young Jones struck him,
and that Scribner threw him out of
the house, at the same time threaten
ing to cut his heart out and perform
several other antics upon his person
which any well regulated person would
object to. He objected, but not wish

he asked protection of the ofliccrs

The result points unmistakably to
the nomination of Gen. Grant by the

of Republican sentiment in favor of

hopelessly in the rear. Many Repub

almost the only one mentioned in their

That Awful Cow.
There probably lsu t a woman in
North America who isu t afraid of
cows, and there is not a cow in Xorth
America that would harm one nair of
anv woman's head if it had the best
chance iu the world and no other job
on hand. Wednesday forenoon a stray-
cow lierhrros from the country for a
taste of baled hav, found a gate oiien
and entered a yard on Second street
X lie woman camo to tlie iront uressea
to go out, but seeing the cow she ut
tered a scream and went back. There
wasn't a thing iu the yard for tho cow
to damage or eat being tired she raised
her cud. lav down, and began to chew
away as if she had got home from a long
visit to Kurope. i lie woman next ap
peared at a side window and called
upon tho cow to "get out" A dog
might have "got" but the cow didn't
Then the woman threw a rag at tne
cow and called for the dog. Tho dog

woman shook a pillow at.the cow and
eremptorily ordored her off the prem
ises, but the bovine half closed her
eyes and let her thoughts run ahead to
lly time. As the cow woman t go, and
as the woman couldn't go till the cow
did, sterner measures were resort
ed to. A tin pan was held out of the
window and beaten Willi a spoon. Put
the cow couldn't be fooled into believ
ing that Fourth of July had come.
Then the woman went iiito the back
vard to throw chilis over the fence and
knock a eouple of horns off. The lirst
one hit the window and the next one
banged the blinds on the next house.
and the cow s horns stuck tighter than
ever, lines or "git out: were again
resorted to without effect and then
the woman watched at the front door
till she saw a boy come along and she
opened it and cried out. "Oh! boy!
there's a horrible cow in our yard!

and police you can and dnve her out
and 111 give you a whole quarter of a
dollar! Hurry up, for she looks as if

Love Your Mother.
Of all the love affairs in the world,
none can stirjiass the true love of a big
boy for his mother. It is a pure love,
and noble, honorable in the highest de
gree to both. 1 do not mean merely a
dutiful affection. I mean a love which
makes a 'xy gallant anil courteous to
his mother, saying to everybinly plain
ly that he is fairlv iu love with her.
And I never yet knew a loy to "turn
out" lad who began by falling in love
with his mother. Any man may fall
in love with a fresh faced girl, aiid the
man who is gallant with the gir!, may
cruelly neglect the worn and weary
wife. But the Iwy who is a lover to
his mother, in her middle age, is a
true knight who will love his wife as
much in tlie sereleaved autumn as he
did in the daisied spring-time.
A Knowing Bird With Peculiar Tastes.
I have a pet robin nearly eight years
old, which fell from its n-st before it
was fledged. It never has been known
to beat against the wires of its cage in
anv wav. On thecontrarv.w hen allowed
to II v out it is ill at ea.-e. rf-niiitti!ig
itself to be caught without dirticultv.
and seems glad to get bock as a child
to return home from boarding school.
At4irst we fed him on spiders, earth
worms, and such larva: as could be ol
tiined; but very soon he manifested a
marked preference for leefsLake; and
took very kindly to bread, crackers,
bread and uiiik, cake etc For the last
seven years his "living" lias lcen any
thing ordinarily found upon the family
table, he having liecome altogether t-i
aristocratic to toop to common robins'
food. During his lirst winter, when
ever the cook was frying doughnuts,
we notii-ed a peculiar teasing note, lit
tered only when ho was specially
anxious for some new kirfd of food.
This led lis to try his taste for hot
doughnuts, when we found they exact
ly suited him, and the hotter the cake,
tlie more voraciously did he eat it.
As a further test of his iiower of scent
and pecular taste, we found that as soon
asa paper of raisinsorany sucn irua w as
brought into the ro jiii, though it had
not been opened, be began teasing, jut
as a cat perceives the arrival of fresh
meat while it is stiil wrapjied in the
pajier. For any kind of meat fresh or
salt boiled or fried, (save mutton) he
shows evident pleasure, aud, though
retaining his regard for flies ami
spiders, he is not at all anxious for
them. In the summer, when his cake
becomes too dry to suit his palate, he
dijis the whole into the bathing dish to
moisten it, nor is this merely acciden
tal, for the dish stands at the further
side of the cage, and it is a custom with
him to carry it and din it in. Asa re
sultof his softdietaiui peculiar life, his
bill has a projection uon its point at
least three-sixteenths of an inch long.
and the nails of his hind toes, if
straightened, would be considerably
more than an men long, jmnng me
hot weather it is no unusual thing for
him to bathe thoroughly live or six
times daily, often as late as after tea,
and very gentralv his good night song
is sung bv giisligfit : indeed, during the
earlv winter months he often kings till
10 1. M. During January and l eb-
ruary his notes are very sou and
sweet becoming louder and louder,
as the season advances, until the 1st or
middle of July, when, during the pro
cess of moulting, he is silent save the
welcoming chirp, winch is ever ready
until the middle or lxst of Septem
ber. During this time there are many
days when he has no perceptible tail or
wing featners, anil not more tnan nail
a dozen on bis head and neck. Wheth
er or not this shedding of so many at
once is due to his food and surround
ings, I cannot say, but it has ever been
so. HrUiux Newt.
