[From the San Francisco Chronicle.]
Elnnned and full uf fcruat poHiljil itirs,

must gnash its teeth at the manner his
original design hus been botched. The
majority of the grand publio buildings
are lost in a wilderness of common brick
and mortar. What's the use of spend
ing hundreds of thousands in porticos
and columns that can't be seen when
you've turned the next corner? Where's
the propriety of exhibiting the Venus of
Milo In a bandbox P On the first day
you take the rear of the Capitol for the
front, and wonder why the Statue of
Liberty atop the iron dome turns her
back ominously away from the people.
On the second or third day you may
discover that the real front of the build
ing faces away from the most thickly
settled portion of the city. They've
done their best to make the rear look
like the front, yet it will maintain a
bark-yard sort ol appearance. A grand
staircase has been planned for this side.
Architecturally the back-front of the
Capitol is running, as it were, a sort of
opposition to the real front. Greed
turned the front of the Nation's Capitol
away from the present city of Washing
ton. Soventy years ago certain landed
aristocrats owned the acres contiguous,
or, at least, every other lot, for which
they wanted a most exorbitant price.
They had the land fever bad, and ex-
fiected the Washington of 1810 would,
n ten years or so, become the Washing
ton of 1880. Hut the people couldn't
buy the high-priced acres in front of the
Capitol, so they bought those in the rear.
Whereby the city was built at
THE CAriTOL'S BACK rOOR.
In Washington it seems to me that the
people who are not in office or trying to
get oflice are keeping boarding-houses,
and the rest are negroes. The exodus
has been exodusting to Washington for
a long time. A parade of one hundred
soldiers here on Washington's birthday
was attended by an escort of at least
two thousand negroes. The drum
major of the battalion, on his way to
the armory, was followed by at least
one hundred small negroes and every
private by twenty-five. The small ne
gro sells newspapers. There must be
one colored newsboy to every six Wash
ingtonians. Juvenile beggars, black and
white, are numerous and importunate,
generally for " a penny to help bury me
poor, sick mother." The staple pro
duction of Washington seems to be
Second-hand furniture. There is a big
sale every day on Pennsylvania Avenue
ind Seventh Street, where immense
bedsteads fill up the street.
There are but two lively streets, Penn
sylvania Avenue and Seventh Street.
The south side of Pennsylvania Avenue
Is almost tabooed to respectability. It
is bare of promenadors. The north side
is crowded at 3 p. m. On the south
side-street are numerous houses dan
gerous to young and old men, simple
and void of understanding. The gen
eral appearance of the shops suggests
a prosperous country town. The court
hero does its expensive trading mostly
in New York. The cry of New York
papers on the' streets quite equals that
of those published in the capital ; and,
judging from a remark not uncommon,
one of the phases of the millennium
will be, " when we are only four hours

of Absaloms. There are about fifty

Every evening an immense flock of
crows wing their way directly over the
city. These crows do business by day
in irginia ana come nome to sleep in
Maryland. The town pump is not ex
tinct. " Steamed oysters" usurp the
stews of more Northern cities, and they
say coal Healers deliver to purchasers
an honest ton of 2,240 pounds. In the
streets by day are seen ram-shackle
wagons from the surrounding
country drawn by horses in
the sere and yellow leak or an
occasional ox, and driven by from two
to four negroes. One former Confed
erate soldier in gray is now playing an
engagement on the streets with a hand
organ. The dust during high winds ex
cels thnt of San Francisco. The
theaters are rather barny inside and
matinee on the slightest provoc
tion. President Hayes goes to the
FOUNDRY METHODIST CHURCH.
I attended there last Sunday ; heard
the dullest and driest of sermons with
the President. It was one of those ser
mons too common at present : plagiar
ized involuntarily from theological
works; couchod in more hard words
'than may be found in the entire New
Testament; soaring far above ordinary
comprehension, and delivered by a
preacher as aevoia oi personal magnet
ism as a plaster statue. The President
never winced nor uttered a groan during
this martyrdom, although the boys m
the gallery grinned and punched each
other ; girls took refuge in their hymn
or Sunday-school books; other and old
er girls semi-flirted optically, and one
ola gentleman snored. One good fea
ture of the ofUcial church is the absence
of a professional choir. A precentor
or leader, mounting tne piatiorm puipn
after the hymn is read, gives it out,
strikes the tune and keeps the congre
gation from straying off. They sing the
good old-fashioned Methodist airs and
lutroduco no operatic frills or trim
ming., nor new turn imtrhcd up out of
old ones. When the tliutl amen of
tha hi'tii'diction was pronounced we
grabbed our hats mid ninlicd fur the

the final henmhelory syllable, as is
the custom in many Protestant, church
es. On the sidewalk we formed a line
four or live deep to see tho President
coine out. This, with some, I am grieved
to say, was the sole object in going to
church. The President was accompa
nied by two young Indies (one in a blue
walking-dress with black velvet trim
ming, very plain, neat and tnteful).
Mr. Hayes looks well, walks erect with
a vigorous stride, is brond as to should

paper currency. From 11 a. m. to 2

with visitors, inspecting the process of

The Use of Hand Tools.
The past thirty years have brought
about an almost complete revolution in
the manner of conducting operations
on farms. The farmer now owns and
runs as many machines ns the manufac
turer. He rides behind a pair of
matched horses when he turns furrows,
rolls the uneven soil, puts in a crop of
corn or grain, cuts grass, rakes hay or
harvests wheat, oats, rye and barley.
There is one machine for binding grain
in tho field, another for thrashing;, and
a third for denning it. Corn-stalks are
often cut and the grains are generally
shelled by tho employment of a ma
chine. In one way or another the bur
dons farmers formerly bore have been
transferred to horses, wind-mills and
tho driving-wheels of steam engines.
In ninny cases fanners have given up
pnying any nttention to those crops that
can not be planted, cultivated and har
vested by the usu of machines.
Tho sickle, cradle, hoe, 3pade, scytho,
flail and hand rake if found about
the premises are only preserved ns curi
osities or relics of a former era of hus
bandry. The study of most farmers
during a generation has been in devis
ing means to get rid of their employ
ment altogether. Farmers are fond of
talking about the dignity of labor and
take delight in calling themselves "the
sons of toil." Common observations,
however, show that they are quite as
anxious to shirk manual labor as peo
ple in other vocations are. Many of
them appear to consider all kinds of
work degrading that must be performed
with the hands or by the employment of
hand toolsi If they are not "above
work" they are certainly above doing
it in the manner their fathers did. They
want a machine to perform every kind
of operation in the field.
Many young farmers have never
learned to handle small implements
with any degree of skill. They make
as awkward work with a spade as with
a Binoothing-plane. They can not swing
a grnin cradle or thrash out a small lot
of grain with a tinil. They are almost
entirely unaccustomed to the use of the
hoe and tho spading-fork. Some of
them can only sow gram and grass-seed
with the aid of a machine. l'liev are
machine farmers. They dolight in ex
tensive operations, but despise the de
tails of farm work. If anything can not
be done by the use of a machine they
negloot it altogether. Many farmers
disliko hand-work to such an extent
that they are waiting for a milking
machine to be perfected before they
will keep a considerable herd of milch
Tho introduction of farm machinery
should not supersede the iikal hand
tools. Tho latter should bs employed
in connection with the former, and
fanners should take pride in being
skilled in their use. Every man who
works on a farm should know how to
mow a good swarth of grass; to harvest
grain with a cradle or sickle; to beat
out grain with a flail; to handle a
spade and fork, and to use a hoe with
dexterity. Thousands of mowing-machines
are ruined and hundreds of per
sons are injured because farmers do
not use the hand-scythe in cutting tho
grass by the side of fences, among
orchard trees, and in places where it
has lodged. What is true of the mowing-machine
is also true of the reap
er. There is economy in thrashing out
small lots of grain, buckwheat, flax and
grass-seed with the old-fashioned hand
Bail. It is cheaper to prepare tho soil of a
garden for planting with a spado or
fork, if one knows how to handle them
properly, than with a plow. It is cheap
er and better to render the soil lino and
smooth with a rake than with a har
row. The implement most neglected
by the farmers is the ono that is most
useful in killing weeds, in pulverizing
the soil and plaoing it where it will do
tho most good to plants iu all stages
of their growth. This tool is the old
fashioned tool once known as the hoe.
The hoe in the hands of a person who
knows how to nse it skillfully is tho
most valuable implement ever employed
in farming or gardening. No cultiva
tor over constructed can do the work
that can bo performed with the hoe.
In every corn and potato-Held it should
bo used before the cultivator is, and
also used in connection with it. Corn
that takes a premium is almost invaria
bly hand-hoed. I
The expression, " As dull as a heo,"
shows the condition in which this im
plement is generally kept. While It
should not be "as sharp as a razor," it
should have a good cutting edge, that
will sever weeds without tearing them
from the ground. A hoe needs to be
sharpened occasionally, ns much as an
ax or a saw does. A' boo of the best
quality in tho market can be bought at
. the price of a day's work in the field,
and u a any s work is saved uy using
up a hoe in grinding it there is nothing
lost. A largo amount of good work
cannot bo douo with a poor, rusty, dull
lojjc, any more than it can by tae use of
an ax or scytho in tho same condition.
A boo should be made of good steel,
and kept sharp anil finely polished.
After it has been used it should bo
cleaned ami oiled before it is put away.

How to Make a Bed.
The first thing to be done is to put on
the bod-apron, which should be hung in
the closet of the chamber nearest the
kitchen, that there may be no excuse for
not using it every timo the beds are
made. The next thing is to place two
chairs about eighteen inches apart, and
near the foot oi the bed. Remove the
pillows and lay them on the chairs;
grasp tho counterpane, and with a gen
tle pull and toss, lay it across the arms
and place it orderly upon the chairs.
Uomove the quilts, comfortables and
sheets in the same manner, and lastly,
lay the bolster across the chairs. If the
feather tick is heavy, it is decidedly tire
some for weak backs, and need not be
removed, but with a quick motion it
may be rolled up near the head of tha
bed while the mattress is being shaken
A word about the shaking: If the
mattress is a tick filled with straw or
husks, scarcely two persons would stir
it alike. My mother always makes
splendid looking beds high, carefully
oval and soft, to a degree I can never
hope to equal, simply because I do not
like to occupy them. I always want the
bed to be level, showing little depression
where the body has lain, and the smooth
mattress, covered in suramor with an
eight or ten-pound cotton nuittresB, and
in winter with a feather tick, suits me
best. Several years ago, when I occu
pied a bed alone, I seldom thoroughly
shook up the straw oftener than weekly.
One summer, when Freddie slept with
me, I usi'd to raise a little ridge in the
center of tho bed to keep him from roll
ing against me while asleep, as children
are quite apt to do.
After tho mattress is arranged at the
foot, the feathers can be carefully rolled
down and the head of the bed shaken
up ; the feathers should be stored and
lightly patted smooth, and tne bolster
Bhaken and laid in place: If two per
sons occupy the bed, give the benefit of
the fullest end of the bolster to the one
who desires the head highest. Taka
hold of the first sheet carefully (it
will be very easy to pick it up U
properly laid down), and with a quick
motion toss it over the bed, allowing it
to cover the bolster well, and tuck it
down at the head. Lay on the second
sheet, allowing the hem to reach mid
way of the bolsUjr, and tuck down both
sheets all around the bed. Spread on
quilts and comfortables, and lastly the
counterpane, taking care that all are an
equal distance from the head of the bed.
Shake up the pillows and lay them
smooth, and bring the shams from tho
closet whore they were lightly folded
the night previously, and the bed is
The advantage of having two chairs
is that as the articles are taken off one
by one they can be laid in order, and
there is no danger of the unpleasant
feeling that the part covering the foot
one night will lie over the face the next.
I used to think it very tiresome when
mamma insisted on my removing the
articles separately ; but I now soe the
wisdom of the plan, and whenever I see
any one heedlessly rolling the bed
clothes together and off the bed, I wish
they oould have the chance I hni of
learning to remove them properly.
If the size of the room will allow, it is
preferable that the bed stand far enough
away from the wall to allow easy access
on either side. Aside from the con
venience, thorough night ventilation is
more easily managed. But under any
circumstances, ono must not forget that
