An Off Hand Way to Meaauro an Acre.
Few farmers know the tho of tlit'lr
firtlils or how ninny uorcs they contain.
A Hold of tho writer's, before, it enmc in
to hi tioNdcsKioo, had been plowed anil
renped by contract for fifteen icre. On
nieii.surinj it, it waa found to havo but
twelve neres. It in desirnhltf. In fact, in
dirtpcn.table for pood mirk, tliat a far
mer sliould know how ninny acres each
Held eontaiiiH, for otherwise ho cannot
apportion seed or manure for It, norenn
lie tell how much time it should require
to be plowod. A measuring cord should
be part of tho furniture on overy farm.
To make one, procure sixty-.sevon feet
of slronp rope, ono Inch around; niako
a loop or fasten a ring or a bar at each
end, ami make these 'precisely slxty-slx
feet apart. Then tlo a pieeo of red nil
In tho center. One acre of ground will
lie a piece four of the eoribt (chains)
long and two Rtid one-half wide, equal
to sixteen by ten rod, making ICO
wjurirc rods to one nero. Tho advantage
of the ring or loop is that ono person
can nieiisuro alone by driving a stako lu
Urn ground to hold tho ropo whllo ho
stretches It out. Tho ropo should bo
tonkod In tar and dried, which will pre
vent it from shrinking when wot.
Training Boys in Correct Language,
Tho process of training bovu in the
correct use of language should properly
Bein in the lower grade of the elumen
ta;y school. It U at this stngek that tho
vocal orgnna are most llexiblo and sus
ceptibility to impressions is moststrong
ly marked. If a judicitrtis mode of train
Trig be pursued at this stage, habiU of
correct expression nro much more easily
ac(uiredthan at a later period, when by
the force of vicious association most
boys have become inveterate in tho use
of inelegant a well as inaccurate lan
First of all it i. to bo strictly insisted
upon that the selections used for read
ing represent nothing but the purest
types of English. .Simplicity cf style U
perfectly consistent with grace of ex
pression. There could not exist a great
er pedagogic error than to suppose that
coarseness of diction is essential to clear
apprehension on the part of children.
Tin versatile richness of our literature
will Bupply an unlhniteil variety of easy
narratives, couched in tho purest lan
guage. It is also essential that as soon
as a boy acquires the use of tlie simplest
words lie shall bo diligently practiced in
combining them into short and easy
sentences. ThU exercise is the germ of
syntax, and the synthetic power cannot
be called into exercise at too early a
stage. ' Indeed words cannot be strictly
delined except by illustration in sen
tences. It is tho context that generally
determines tlie significance of tho word:
a mere abstract delinition is often de
ceptive and misleading.
The exercises in sentence-building
will gradually expand into composition,
and they are the best introduction to it.
As tho boy gradually develops, the char
acter of his reading can bo easilv changed
to Adapt it to his progress. From tlie
chaste simple story of tho lower grades
he can pass to somo of the higher class
ics, whose lucid diction renders even tho
gravest theme fascinating to youthful
minds of ordinary intelligence and ap
plication. Such works as Irving's Lif
of Columbus, Irving's Life of N ashing
ton, Trescott's Histories, Macaulay's Es
says, some of Sir Walter Scott's Novels,
Longfellow's Poems, aro admirably
adapted to the purposes of class usr , to
say nothing of their tendency to stimu
late the purest tasto and tho noblest as
pirations. Minute orprofuse exegetical criticisms
and all purely philological questions,
such as tlie evolution of speech, tho
genesis of forms, etc., should oe deferred
until the collegiate course is reached.
Until this point Is attained the training
of boys in language should havo its
prime object to inculcate from tho very
ILrst models of pure and graceful Eng
lish, to iutrodueo them directly to tho
great masters of our prose and poetry,
to develop the esthetic sense by con
stantly presenting types of perfect beau
ty in language, and to impress upon tho
mind of the student the profound truth
that accuracy and purity of expression
is a moral as well as an intellectual ac
complishment Henry E. Shepherd in
Americans as Orators.
Daniel Webster was much more than
an orator. But in his own life-time his
oratory often appeared to overshadow
liis other claims to distinction. The
most celebrated of American citizens of
his generation, and perhaps tho most
honored and beloved, ho was never ac
cepted by the wholo body even of
Americau liberals as their rightful can
didate for the presidency. Only when
startled by the sad surprise of his death
they began to repent of the opportunity
they had missed of glorifying their side.
Since tliOj grave closed upon him tho
splendor of his rhetorical triumphs has
almost altogether eclipsed his fame ns a
jurist and a statesman. ' That the re
nown of an orator should survive at all
must always indicate more than ordinary
endowments of speech. That it should
survive in the United States betokens
marvelous eloquence. Ability to speak
in public is common to all Americans,
excepting Gen. Washington and, per
haps Gen. Grant. An American who
st mlied at Cambridge some forty years
since records tho naive surprise ho felt
at discovering himself an object of
academical admiration for being able to
make a set speech without preparation.
Every American could do the same, ho
avows. Tho best judges, experts, and
rivals listcnod enraptured to Daniol
Webster, whether arguing in the su
premo court, addressing congress, or do
claiming nt Bunker hill, or in Faneuil
hall, or on a baro, bleak rock nt New
Plymouth. With ono accord they recog
nized their master; they could deny him

Tho art is not dead in Europe. England
has two orators left. France has at least
one. The American union has not a
few. But wo suspect there is something
wanting to their efforts which was pres
ent stillwhen Daniel Webster expired
thirty years ago. Words are ns flowing
and glowing ns they were; it is the
fjcarts of tho hearers which aro no mora
receptive and impressible. The festival
which honors thn memory of Daniel
Webster reminds this ngo atonco of a
man who took its predecessor captive
by the magic of speech and of its own
loss of the faculty for abandoning itself
to the snmo delicious cnthrallmcut.
Sloop for Children.
There is no danger that children can
sleep too much. The old proverb, "Who
sleeps, rHts," is illustrated In those little
ones who sleep most. Wakeful chil
dren are always peevish irritable and
lean. If they can be induced to sleep
abundantly they are quite likely to be
come good 11 attired and plump. Their
sleep should bo as mucli during tho
hours of darkness as possible, and there
foro It is better that they should go to
bed before sunset to havo their sleep
out, than to sleep long after sunrise in
tho morning. It is well to let any
healthful, growing child or voung per
son sleep until ho wakes himself, and
then glvo him such a varioty and
amount of out door cxerciso as shall
muko lUm glad when bedtime returns.

Flank of beef Braised. The flank of
beef is a part generally unknown 'to
housekeepers in goodcirctimstanccs, but
if properly cooked it makes on exceed
ingly good dish. Have about four

Presence of Mini.
A Waterford blacksmith while walk
ing en the railroad track a short time
ago caught his foot in a frog nt a switch
and could not release it. For several
minutes, so the report savs, he stood in
fearjjil contemplation of iiis fate, for ho
knew it train was approaching. Final
ly, he throw his body clear of the track, ,
and the next moment tho locomotivo
crushed ills foot oft No one can rend
this paragraph without sincere sympathy
for tho unfortunate blacksmith, but at
the samo timo it is hard to understand
why, sinco ho had several minutes at
his disposal, and sufficient presence of '
mind to save the rest of his body, he did
not take his foot out of his boot, having '
found it inipossiblo to take his boot out
of tho frog.
Not long ngo, a young man approach-
ing a railroad crossing saw a girl with
her foot rausrht in a switch, and evident
ly too bewildered to help herself. A
train was approaching nnidly, and
there was only a moment left in which
to assist her. The roan ran toward her
with all the speed he was capable of,
opening his knife as ho went, seized her
arm with on) hand, while tho other
drow tho knife blade up tho front of her
laced boot, dragged her fainting off the
track, and the train rushed past 1 Ue
cut her instep and ankle to the bene,
but he saved her life, and the wound
soon healed. A tenth part of the re-
sources and energy thus displayed would
liayo saved tho blacksmith's leg. ,
