Whether it is true or not is a question that

He is a hard character upon whose word,

figured as the greatest hero of the conflng.
ration and denounced thegentlcmen whohad
been entrusted with the charity funds in
the severest terms lwcausc they did not fur
nish him with a comfortably furnished
house. He has been here a greater part of
the time since and has been an object of
wony to our police officers and courts al
most constantly. His reputation for
veracity is so bad, .his tricks
to circumvent the law have
been so nmuuerous and so bold, that we
feel induced to believe that his present
claim to invalidism is but another ruse to
get out of prison. However bis case should
have the attention of those whom it con
cerns, and if he is a sick man he should be
treated as such.

Deak Sin I was agreeably surprised to
find your letter in the good Bulletin of

to think that a gentleman and especially
an old bachelor would think it worth

of discouraged housekeepers Your plan
is good aad practical as far as it goes.
Still there is a great deal to do in a house
hold, which numbers Beveral small chil
dren,, besides cooking, washing, ironing
and sewing. Too much for one pair of
hands to do be they ever so willing and
energetic, so that even were housekeepers
to sensibly adopt your grandmother's plan
and patronize baker, dressmaker and char
woman to tho extent you suggest, yet nine
out of ten of them would still find in ne
cessary to keep a housemaid besides. I
hope you will not conclude from mis tnar
Cairo abounds in what "Miss Ophelia"
would call shiftless housekeepers, Ones
who would lead indolent, self-indulgent
lives and shirk everything like work or
worry, leaving all tlii.s for the Bteruer sex
to battle with. But you will be generous
enough to admit that if the wife and
mother undertakes to do the dishwashing,
sweeping, dusting, chamberwork etc., un
assisted, even in a small family of half
dozeu she has little time or strength left
for the even more important duties that
must devolve on every mother of young
children. Now, sir, can you not hint upon
some plan by which we may get thoso
outrageous house-servants within bounds
and train them, so that they will be a
comfort to us and credit to
themselves. We have tried paying them
exhorbitant wages havo tried petting and
coaxing, all to no purpose. They remain
the same untidy, obatinnte, ungrateful, and
In many cases dishouest set, We tool sure
that men understand managing help better
than women do. Witness the same man

Please place us under still greater obliga

When wo wrote for The Bulletin wo

We had made garden and
were not expecting to see thein the beds
covered with two inches of snow on tho
27th of March. There has been so much
predicting for tho year 1881 that it docs
look as though the eloments had gone

at once, and betake themselves to a more
honorable occupation. There is honest

"Turaraus" is much exercised over a
"Trim" Dongola liar and a , "second-class

Tummus very much reminds us of .tl9
preacher, who declared that ho fully bolJer
od "the longer a man lives m the world, t't8,.
older ho gets." That preacher believed that,
aud who dure say he did no believe tho
truth. "Tumiiius" fully believes when he
publishes a lie in his paper that it is a
truth. He copied from "New York Sun,"
Hayes', farewell address, written by" Dana,
and bo fully believed R.' B.,JIuyes Was the !
author of it. But lot us stop, and not say ,
more of truthful, hatchet loving "Tummus."

tha Beet Root Culture.
During the past year there have been
a number of farmers who have raised
with success tho beet root for the sup- ;
nly of sugar making. . Mr. Wir, ..
Marblohoad, Mass., at a la to agricul
tural mooting, considered tho question,
what crops it would pay to raise, and '
thought sugar beets would pay to raise
in New England, and in no State in the :
Union could they bo raised any hotter
than in Massachusetts. He planted two
acres with sugar beets the past sum
mer, and although the severe drouth
affected them badly, and tho great hall
storm broke the tops off, hindering
thoir growth about ten days, he raised
about sixteen tons to the acre, which he
sold to Uio Portland Boot Sugar Manu
facturing Company for $65, aud had a
return of many tons of beet pulp doliv- ,
red at his farm to feod to his animals.
Hogs like it and fat on it. Cows do :
not liko It at first; have to loam to like
it, the same an some cows In the back
woods not used to eating Indian meal
are obliged to learn beforo they will eat
It readily. Does not think a horse that ,
works hard can Uvo wholly upon it and
do woll. A product of sixteen tons to :
an acre will produce a greater per cent ;
ot sugar to the ton than a product of ,
thirty or iorcy ions w tne acre. , ,
