I?AHIlKtiKY 1si.ani is tho Island of
Calm Doliphts. That is, you fool sure
of it if you land from tho cgniet littlo
cove on the western .side, whenco tho
grass-prown main street of tho village
takes up its gontlo w'iy-
Over tho eastern extremity, tis you
wander over a preen, undulating pas
ture, where miUlsheep crop leisurely to
the music of sleepily tinkling bells, you
come suddenly upon great cliffs of
black, jagged rock, with ' cruel, hun
gry, crawling foam" at your feet, and
gulls screaming overhead. It is almost
as much of a surprise, as much out of
keeping with tho rest of Jiarlierry
Island, as a bit of Dante's Inferno
would be introduced into 1'aradise. It
is called Dead Man's 1'oint, and the
sail-boats of tho summer guests at Por
cupine, which are flitting about contin
ually through tho long summer days,
gave it a wide berth. Here, with the
angry uproar of the sea and t lie scream
ing of the gulls, the sleep of no en
chanted princess could be sweet.
But Dead Man's Point is several
miles away from tho little cove where
the landing is and tho main street be
gins. There have been wheels in tho
grassy roads once, but unless they be
longed to the " wonderful ono-ho.ss
ehay" they havo long ago ceased to re
volve, and the audacious little grass
blades and clovers are having it all their
own way in tho ruts.
There aro obstructions in tho way of
even foot passengers in tho grassy road.
A Barberry Islander of the old days,
when as yet the spell had not fallen
and ambition dwelt m Barberry Island
breasts, had burned with a desire to see
the cot of his fathers on tho opposite
side of the street from where it original
ly stood. But the goal of his ambition
was never reached. In the middle of
the street stands tho old house, still
upon rollers, but falling to decay. Any
aspect of energy or ambition which the
rollers and its position in tho middle of
the street might give it is neutralized by
its gaping windows and doors and fall-
ing rafters. The moss has even laid a
detaining hand upon tho rollers. In
the capacious fire-place a charred and
blackened log remains, as if tho fire
had but just gone out. The iron frame
work is falling, but tho andirons of
brass, finely and beautifully molded
into tho shape of the Sphinx treasures
from over the sea evidently are intact
and but littlo tarnished. I'hey look as
if they could tell if they chose" whither
havo gone all tho dreams and fancies
and hopes that have vanished in tlame
and smoke on that desert t'd hearthstone,
and whether in some far country thoir
owners have found them ail again. The
foundation from which the old house
was ruthlessly torn looks as if it had
long ago become resigned to the pangs
of separation, and welcomed the friend
ly attentions of the burdocks and this
tlos which havo tried to hide its un
sightly wounds. But tho will-sweep
still utters a feeble, wheezy moan in the
ear of every passing breeze.
A littlo farther on in tho grassy high
way we are obliged to turn out for the
school-house. It is a structure which
evidently served once as a ship's
cabin, and has been very littlo altered
for its new sphere of usefulness. It
bears the scars of many a battlo with
wind and wave. It seems like an old
veteran who, "worn out with many
wars," descends in his dotage to the
position of nurse and playmate to his
grandchildren. A wide, gaping seam
in the side, rudelv patched with boards
and an old sail, shows where the
weather-worn, old ship of which it was
apart received its death blow. Per
hapsprobablyit was tho cruel, black
rocks at Ih-atl -Man s l'oint tliat gave it j
and the Barberry Inland fathers, with
commendable thrift, towed it over to
the cove and utilized it as an aid in teach
ing the Barberry Island "young idea."
But their stuk of energy was evidently
exhausted when the school-hmise-to-be
had reached a convenient locality; there
was not enough left to movo it out of
the road ; so they turned it around until
tho door came in the proper place, and
let it be.
A business man, imbued with the
true Yankee spirit, who was among tho
summer guests at Porcupine, was once
moved to " wake the Barberry Islands
up," as he expressed it. He went over
to the island for the especial purpose of
remonstrating with them upon the
enormity of having the school-house in
the middle of the street.
Old Jacob Manley, who was school
agent, deacon of the church, sexton and
undertaker, keeper of the store, select
man, and captain and crew of a fishing
siiiiuk, gave several hitches to his over
alls ml lighted his pipe with great de
liberation before he replied to the busi
" Wall, it's sot there a consid'able
pell, now, nigh on to twenty year, and
this is the first complaint I ever heerd
of its bein' in any body's way. It 'd be
consid'able trouble to hist it, and I col
kilate it'll hey to stay sot."
And with regard to tho old house,
which had come to an untimely halt in
the midst of iu moving, Deacon Mauley
was no more easy to be entreated.
Thai air ' the old Hadloclc housP,
and the Hadlock has kinder died out,"
he said. "Luke II ail lock '8 wife died
while bo was a movin' or. 't, and J.uke'i
fjirawj M'im-d t' kinder gin t"iit ell to
onre. IIo went over to the main to live
with a merried darter, and she up and
died, and then ho died too. They
brought him, oyer here to be buried,
and 't was a dretful mournful
kind of a funeral, meln' that all
his family had kinder died out be
fore him. When llosea Lyninn railed
out for tho mourners to fuller him to tho
grave it seemed real kinder lonesome
that thero wa'n't nono. And he sung
'em all out, real spry and cheerful,
llosea nlwus likes to hevthings done up
sliip-shniie, and he's a master hand to
a funeral, llosea is, 'Corpse's parent s I '
ho sung out, and they didn't come for
rud, seem' they'd been dead moro'n
forty year. 'Corpse's brothers and hIs
ters!' and (here wa'n't nono o' them,
secin' ho never had none except little
Cyrus that died when ho was a baby.
And when ho conio to 'corpso's cousins'
there wa'n't nobody but half-witted Jako
Iladlock, a-giggliu' because ho was
dressed tip in his Sunday clothes and
thought 'twas a siiigin'-school.
" So you seo thero really hain't no
body to seo to tho old houso, s'posin'
'twas in tho way."
The enieriirising business man had no
interest in the "dying out" of tho Ilad
lock family, and the deacon's pmlixity
and gentle moderation irritated him, es
pecially as it was evident that it had a
substratum of obstinacy which no argu
ments of his could prevail against. Ho
shook the dust of Barberry Islaml off
his feet, or would have if thero had been
any, and firmly resolved to loao the
degenerate Barberry Islanders henco
forth to their own devices, though they
should all take up their abode in tho
middle of the main street.
A fence suddenly arrests our foot
steps. Thero is a gate, fastened only
by a feeblo nnd frayed rope, but thero
is littlo teniDtationtoventJiro beymnl it ;
marshy land, beset with bogs and pit
falls, lies on the other side. Tho grassy
road has come to an end because, as
Deacon Manlcv informed tis, ' there
didn't seem to Iio no pertickler reason
for its gnin' no further."
It is just beyond the burying ground
that- the road comes to an end, as if,
having brought its travelers to that
peaeetul bourne, its mission was accom
plished. The cemetery looks neglected. Evi
dently Luke liadliick was not tho only
"corpse" whose relatives had "died
out." A tangle of grass and wwtls and
running vines links the graves together;
t Iio paths nro "past finding out."
There are many more stones than
graves. 1 lus is in memory oi a sea
captain who was born on Barberry Isl
and, and (lieu in Australia; tins oi tnree
fishermen drowned off "tho Banks."
Another, of three Barberry Island boys
who were soldiers in tho civil war, and
sleep in unknown soul hern craves
Mere is one in memory oi a L alitorma
miner killed by his comrade !r the early
days of the gold fever. And this is
erected to t win brothers, mm of whom
was drowned off Eagle's Head, scarcely
a mile awav, and the other died of .ship's
fever at Constantinople. "Lost at sea
from ship " is the inscription on
many stones. Wanting altogether is tho
familiar inscription of country church
Affliction sore lonit Mtno he bore,
i'liysii ians were vain, etc.
Certainly, in tho old days Barberry
Island men had sullicLent enterprise to
seek what goods tho gods might givo
them in the four corners of tho earth,
and it was given to but few of them to
die in their beds.
But tho women fared differently.
Here is an inscription that reminds us
irresistibly of tho countess who
Lived to the aire of u hundred anil ten,
And died of a fall from a cherry tree then.
Bathsheba Ann, tho widow, respective
ly, of Capt. Seth Hundlett, Zachariah
Hodick and Abijah Manley, died at the
ago of eighty of tho whooping-cough!
It is one of tho hideous, old, black
stones with a grinning death's head up
on it, and directly underneath tho skull
They that have seen thy look in death
JSo more need fear to die.
Most of the women havo died at a
good old age, whooping cough not hav
ing intervened to carry them off. The
widow of Seth Manley, who was
drowned at the age of twenty-four, was
buried besido him at the ago of ninety
one. In an obscure corner we come sud
denly upon a new grave. It causes a
shock of surprise, for tho ancient dates
on the stones have beguiled us into tho
fancy that nobody dies on Barberry
Island nowadays. And on the Island
of Calm Delights, so far from tho jars
and turmoils of tho world, there
wouldn't, as Deacon Manley would say,
"seem to bo no pertikler reason " why
people should not live on forever. Tho
headstone has been very recently set,
but the date upon it is of a year ago
"Jonas Battles. Aged 40. Drowned
off Dead Man's Point, Aug. 1:5, 187."
Probably a fisherman whoso boat was
overtaken by a sudden squall ; such ac
cidents aro common enough along this
rocky coast. But a sudden recollection
strikes us that wo have heard of a man
who saved a young girl from drowning
hero last summer, and lost his own life.
Only half remembering the details,
and feeling an interest in Jonas Battles
and his fate, wo go over to Deacon Man
ley's store to make inquiries. Tho Dea
con is a living chronicle of all tho events
which havo transpired on Barberry
Island for tho last fitly years. His stock
in trade is small in extent but great in
variety. Every article has its price
plainly marked upon it, and in a con
spicuous position is this notice : " Cus
tomers will please make change for
themselves in the drawer." Tho door
stands wide open and there is neither
proprietor nor clerk about tho premises.
Tho drawer filled with money is un
locked. Apparently the millcniiituji has
begun on Barberry Island.
We find the Deacon on the door
stone of his house near the landing, dil
igently mending u very muh mildewed
sail. He is a little, old, weather-beaten
man, who looks like a smoked herring.
"Jonas BattleP Oh! yes. The Bat-
tluses is ono of tho farmilies that's
kinder died out. Elviry's tho last, and
she's jest merried and moved over to
the main. The house looks shut up and
lonesome, you see."
Ho points to a square, white house,
the largest and most imposing upon the
Island, standing off the main street,
with a long lane leading up to it. It
forms a striking contrast to tho other
houses, for its paint is new and shiiiiiif'
and every thing about it looks well
kept and thrifty. But it is evidently
closed and deserted.
"Jonas Battles ho wan't of no great ac
count," pursues the Deacon, no devices
being necessary to draw hint out, " and
y it we all kinder miss him, more'n if
there'd ben more heft to him, p'raps.
Ho was alius round homo, and none of
the oilier men folks ever Is, so the
women folks they kinder relied upon
him. Ho was alius clever, Jonas was,
and handy in a good many ways, if he
. , , I , ,V- 1 , 1 -.11 I .
was turner crui'Koa. routs una nu ins
onaccountubleness to his bein' disap
p'nted in love, but there ain't no use a
taikin ; Jonas wa n t never josi nuo
other (oiks nor his father before him.
"bam Battles, his fuller, was a
school-ni;w,ter froin up tho river, Bangor
way. lie had beautiful leurnm , ami
he could reel off poetry by tho yard; it
didn't seem to be no hauler work for
him than reclin' off a tish-liuo is to tho
rest on us, and 't would beat you to tell
tho rneanin' of about half the words
he'd get into it. There's no douyin' that
'I was great poetry, isut nudum l seem
to have no sprawl. The boys they took
hold and llcjied ilm, twm.i three times,
and finally they pitched him out of the
winder into a snow-bsnk, and kep1 him
there till ho liked to 'a' pot his death.
Then he up and merried old Cap'n Jere
miah Itodiek's darter, Seliny. That
looked mlddlin' smart In him, for Cap'n
Jeremiah was rich; but then they did
say that Saliny done the conrtin'. Tho
gals was nil mighty took with him, be
cause ho was as handsomo as a ligger
head pink and white complected, and
with lightish, crinkly hair. He went by
the naino of Sissy Battles amongst tho
boys, but tho gals they all sot by him.
Women is dretful short-sighted creturs,
and p'r'rps it's just as well for most of
us men folks that they be.
" lie never dono nothin1, Sam Bat.
ties didn't, after ho merried Seliny but
to write poetry and take on because ho
wa'n't in his proper spere. Cap'n Jer
emiah he supported 'cm. Thero was
two children born, Jonas and Elviry,
and then ho died of consumption. Se
liny she thought a terriblo sight of him,
and sho never seemed to spunk up agin
arterhedied. It wa'n't much more'n
a year before sho was buried along side
of him, and Jonnsund Elviry they was
"Old Mis' ltodick, their grandmoth
er, she fetched 'em up and Elviry was
as smart as a steel trap, clear K ulick,
but Jonas there was a terrible sight of
father to him. Ho looked as near like
him as two peas, and ho took to book
learniu' and writin' poetry as a duck
lakes to water. Ho was kinder slim
and sickly, but, Cap'n Jeremiah was sot
on niakin' a sailor on him. He'd quit fol
lerin' the sea himself, but he owned
consid'able in two or three largo ves
sels, and he sent Jonas to sea aboard of
one of 'cm. Elviry sho took on and
said ho wouldn't live through
it, but he come homo a sight
smarter and riiggeder'n ho went. His
grandfather wits tickled to death, nnd
lolks begun to think mebbo thero was
some ltodick to him ni ter all. And he
kep' on goin' till bimeby he got to bo
mate. And ho seemed to 'a' got over
wiitin' poetry. But the last v'yge ho
went, from Boston to Chiny, tho cap'n's
darter was aboard, and Jonas ho got to
court in' of her. Iio courted of her
pootv consid'able strong, and finally she
gave him her promise. He come home
hero with sails all set and colors a llyin'.
Nothin' would tlo but the old bouse
must bo fixed up from sillier to garrit
for the wife that ho was goin' to bring
home. Sieh kerrying on as thero was
in that house wa'n't never seen on Bar
berry Island before nor since. There
was furiiitoor from Boston and llowered
carpets and a pianner all on account of
jonas's new wile, i on see the tap n
ho was old and childish, and his heart
was sot on Jonas. Before tho lixin's
was done there come a letter to Jonas
from the gal sayin'sho hadn't never had
no serous thoughts of hevin' on him ;
she was only jokin' ; and she'd gone off
to furriu parts with her uncle.
"Jonas he jest kinder wilted right
down under it. Ho had a fever and
was out of his head a consid'able spell,
and when he come to and begun to git
well he was lackin' ; nnd ho was alwus
dretful lackin' from that tinio forrud
" He run of an idee that he was agoin'
to merry the gal as soon as she come
home. Ho thought sho was acomin' to
Hoekland" and he was agoin' to meet
her thero and fetch her home. He was
ihvus getlin' slicked up to go to Bock-
land, and he hurried up the fixin1 and
furnishin' harder'n ever, for fear things
wouldn't be ship-shape agin sho come.
"Anil tor twenty years lie never
dono nothin' of no account; he was
ahvusatinkerin'up round gettin' things
lit. for ' kate.' I hen, by spells, he u
think ho was merried to her, anil he'd
talk to her as cf she was settin' right
there, Elviry said. And he'd imagine
that ho had two or three children ; there
was a little gal that favored her mother
Katie, he u call her and two little
boys that was awful smart. Elviry
said she declared for it she felt some
times as if Kate and them children was
really thero to hear him talk to 'em and
about 'em. But that was only by spells
when he was queer'n usual. Ginerally
he was only awaitin' for and expectin'
" And ho wa'n't really crazy, nor ex
actly a fool neither! ( )ld Cap'n Jere
miah was dretful took down; some
thought that it had como upon him be
cause he'd been a temptin' of Provi
dence, heviu' his heart sot on worldly
prosperity; but I wa n t never one that
was so free and easy with the Lord as
to know jest what he dono things for.
" iio u arger the pint with Jonas, old
Cap'n Jeremiah would.and try to shamo
him into showiu' some spunk and spent
about a gal that had gin him the mitten.
But la! Jouas would only jest say to
Elviry that the old man was gettin' silly
"Tho old folks they didn't last long.
They died within a month or two of one
another, and Jonas and Elviry went on
livin' thero jest the same. There was a
good many wanted to keep company
with Elviry, tor sho was smart ana
kinder chipper, and good and whole
some lookiu', though there wa'n't no lig-
ger-headto her; but sho wouldn t leave
Jonas. Sho couldn't 'a sot more by
him cf he'd been tho sonsiblest man on
airth. Tho way sho'd set and listen to
hun and talk to him about 'Kate' by
the hour was a caution. And sho never
crossed him in nothin'. Every once in
a while they'd hcv such a clearin' up
and scttiu' to rights that you'd think
they was goin' to havo tho county con
ference there, and Elviry would take
holt as spry and ehccriul as could bo,
and pertend, for sure, sho thought Kato
was a co mm'.
" And vit on somo subiicks Jonas was
as sensible as any on us, and you might
talk with him for a long spell without
hudin out that he was cracked.
" One day last summer there came a
parcel o' folks over from Porkerpine.
Them summer borders is alwus comiu'
over, a sqiiitttiu' on the rocks over to
Deail Man s Pint, and a-spynr round as
if wo was all cooriosities, and a-takin1
pictcrs. These folks was genteeler'n
common, with their silks and laces and
feathers a-iiobbm , and the men was lit
tle spindlin' fellers, with veils tied round
their hats like women folks. One of tho
women comes up to mo where I was
staudin' by my boat; sho was a big, fat
woman, forty or more, with an oiieom
nion lot o' paint an' whitewash, and a
silk tail to her that would a reached
pooty nigh round the island ; and says
she to me, in an all-killin aloe voice,
says she :
" 'Can you tell me where wo can git
some refreshments i"
" 'No, marm,' says I, 'seem' that tho
Maine law is in force down hero.'
" '(), I mean only will some of tho
good people about hero give us a glass
of milk?' says sho.
" Ami I pluted her up to the Battles
es, Elviry hevin' two cows an' bein'
"' Battles seems of I'd heard the
name,' says the fat woman with the
trailin' gown ; and off they goes up to
Batlleses, tho slim littlo fellows erackiu'
jokes, about me, I knew well enough,
and the women folks snickerin' an'
tossin' their heads.
" It seems that when they come up to
tho house Jonas was a settin' in
the porch, an' he riz up to meet
'cm. Elviry says that tho minute
ho heard the woman's voice ho began
to look while and scairt, an' lie jest
stood all a trcmblin' an' stared at her
An' says she, all to once, in a terrible
son voice ;
"Why. it Is Mr. Jonas Battles!
Surely you haven't forgotten an old
friend like me, Mr. Bait lus P '
" Au' Jonas he stammered out altera
" Kate KateP There's something
about voit that is like Kate! It must
be your yoice; It can't be jour
" I was Kato Lawton when you knew
me, when we was both young,' says
she, kinder soothin'.
"No, you ain't Kntnl You wa'n't
never Kate!' Elviry said ho spoko it out
in a terriblo high shrill voice, an' ho
trembled all over jest like a leaf, an'
they was scairt, thinkin' he was crazy,
which wa'n't surprisin'.
V And then ho kinder sunk down, an'
hid his face with his hands as cf he
didn't want to see her.
"An' they seemed to feel like hurry
in' off, without thinkin' no more about
milk. But says sho to Elviry, before
sho went, says sho :
" What is tho matter with him P ITas
ho been stricken with palsyP'
" ' Ho was stricken by tho falsehood
of a bad woman when ho was young,'
says Elviry. EWiry sho ken be about
as sharp as a red pepper when sho sets
out. An' tho woman went off without
sayin' another word.
" An' Jonas ho got quieted down
pooty quick, but ho kep1 sayin' to El
"Thewnst is there a'n't nothin' to
it! There wu'n'l wver nothin to UP
" Elviry thought he'd kinder como to
himself, an' seo how he'd ben adreamin'
his life away. Sho thought he'd kinder
pictured out a gal in his mind tha
wa'n't a dretful sight liko the ono ho'rt
courted ; or clso he'd picture her out
jest tho samo as sho was when sho was
a gal an' forgot to take no account ol
tho long spell 't had lien senco he see
"Anyhow ho kep' a sayin' over'n
'"Thero ain't nothin' to it! There
wa'n't never nothin'' to UP
Elviry thought that artcr a spell he
might want to sco her agin', bein' she
was his old sweetheart. But he nevei
said nothin' about her, an' she nevei
come anigh agin.
" Arter a few days Jonas ho kind o'
spunked up. It seemed as ef he'd kind
or waked up arter a-long nap, anil
meant to go to work like a responsibli
cretur that had an account to give in tie
day o' jedgment. Ho came down hen
to the landin' ono day an' wanted to g
a fishin' with mo; seemed as pert as
lizard. It was a kinder lowery day
fust-rate for fishin', but it had a "dretltii
squally look an' I concluded not to gi
out. Jonas he sat down with mo an
talked about goin' coastin' or on a fur
riu' v'y'ge, an' seemed to hcv some
sprawl to him, as I hedn't seen him he
for twenty year. If it hed'n't been fo
a kinder queer look to his eyes you
would skurscly hev known that ho wa
" Bymeby a little sail boat from Tork
crpine hove in sight. There wa' n't a
breath of wind then, an' they was t,
rowin' on her, but I knew wo should gi
it hot nnd strong before long; so I was
kinder oneasy till they got landed.
" There was three or four o' them
slim fellers, with knee breeches an
smart stockin's an' hats fixed up likt
gals', an' a parcel o'gals. I took notice
of the fust gal that stepped ashore, anil
sho was about as pooty a cretur as I
oversee; tall an' high steppin', will,
rosy cheeks, an' eyes as bright as but
ton's, an' slick, brown hair. Jonas he
stood iii an' stared at her, an' the cur
usest look had come over his face that I

HOW TO BAISF, CAIIHAOE-ri.ANTS.
Make a bed tho same as for onions, and
mark it off in rows wido enough for a
hoo to work easily between tho rows.
Then sow tho seed and put hen manure
iilong between tho rows, being careful
not to lot it touch the seed row, for if it
does tho seed will not grow, and it will
also kill the plants if it touches them,
lint it will keep off all insects, and the
plants will grow very thriftily. If you
hoe them, put some more on. Tho hen
manure should be loose and ting.

through a cloth into a plate, then add
all together, bake carefully, frost tho
top, brown in the oven if liked, or white
if liked so best. Follow the directions
and it is nice.
How to Ckt Bid of Lariik. Stonks.
Large bowlders may be buiicd out of
sight by digging at ono side of them
deep enough, and toppling them into
the holes and covering them. If the
stone is valuable for building, drill holes
with astcel drill an inch in diameter.one
foot or eighteen inches deep, put in two
to three inches of blasting powder, and
tuse enough to project twelve inches
from the hole, tamp with sand and tire
the fuse. Judgment should be used to
use powder in proportion to the size of
the stone, the object sought being to
break the rock into three or four frag
ments, that may afterward bo reduced
to useful proportions with a sledge-hammer.
To Kill Lice. Col. Curtis writes
the N. Y. Tribune as follows: " We
have tried all sorts of mixtures to kill
lice on animals and at last have hit, on
what we think is best: Melt hog's lard,
or any hot grease, and in it dissolve salt
one-third of the bulk of the grease ; take
as much grease as will be required to
smear the animal all over and into the
mixture pour kerosene oil and stir it up.
Two gills of the kerosene would be suf
ficient for a cow of ordinary size. One
application completely cured the most
stubborn case of lice on an old hog. It
leaves tho skin smooth and clean, re
moving the scurf and healing the irrita
tion caused by the parasites. It is also
excellent for galls and sores."
Manorial Valve of Btrxeu
Stuam'. Speaking to a friend about
burning straw on land for manurial
purposes, writes a New York Times cor
respondent, ho told me this: Four
years ago ho hauled out a lot of wheat
straw, and spread it of a uniform depth
of some fifteen inches over some live
acres. lie then set it afire, and imme
diately on its being consumed turned
the surface under with the plow. To
the very border of this space ho drew
and spread his stable and barnyard
manure. Tho benefit to the following
crop of wheat was greatly to the advan
tage of that portion of the field where
the straw had been burned, and such
was the case likewise in regard to the
ensuing crop of corn. He adds further,
that to this day it is easy to note the
increased fertility of this part of the
field as contrasted with other portions
of it. The land is a reddish clay.
How to Treat Tainted Meat. A
correspondent of the Cincinnati Enrjuirer
says : Take a piece of charcoal the size
of a small hen's egg, tie up in a cloth
and place in the vessel where you cook
your tainted pork. Let it remain dur-
iug liim Lime oi cuokiii ; iiu ilia Keep il
covered with a close-tilting lid. This
method will take every particle of taint
from beef, mutton, etc. ; but it is impos
sible to eradicate all the taint from pork.
Pork should remain in bulk irom three
to six weeks, owing to tho weather, as it
will absorb salt faster in warm, rainy
weather than when extremely cola and
dry. When hung, smoke only on damp.

make a paste of finely ground black
pepper and lard. Spread over the flesh
sido of tho hams nnd shoulders and lay
them in a box, with tho skin side djwn,
until you have covered the bottom ; then
fill in between with dry salt, and so on,
putting a good-fiiting lid on your box.
A Crutch in a Car.
A well-known lady of Boston entered
a crowded horse-car recently and stood
up without complaint, though rheuma
tism in ono loot troubled her greatly.
Her indignation against tho seated oc
cupants of the car was excited, howev
er, when a girl with a crutch was ob
served: leaning against the car door,
while tho male ATncrican citizens were
seemingly glued to their seats and look
ing around in every other direction hut

waxed more and more indignant, at tho
samo time doubtful if she were in Boston
"culchawed" Boston where tho men
were proverbial for their gallantry to
the fair sex, and while meditating on
tho subject sho was aroused by an indi
vidual who informed her that sho could
have his seat, at the samo time remark
ing that ho was "getting off here."
Tho latter remark was made,
to quell any ftars that might ne enter
tained of his disturbing himself on her
account. Tho lady was rather stir
prised at the seat being offerod to hor
Instead of the passenger with tho crutch,
and omitted to thank tho man; but with
the instinctive courlesy which belongs
to a kind and benevolent heart, prof
fered tho vacant upholstered space to
her helpless fellow-passenger, who ac
rented it after manv nrotestations. Af
ter riding seve ral bloc ks tho young lady
with the crutch arose, put that wooden
implement under tho arm of an old lady
opposite, and, with the remark, ' We
get out here, mother," helped the ven
erable dame out of the car, bestowing
as she passed an angelic and bland smilo
on the w. k. 1. The w. k. 1. was aroused
from her fainting fit by the conductor
yelling, "Boston and Midne Bailroad!"

is used by the samo party. Huston

Ho seated himself to wait his turn, and,
