Got the Colic faid.
Two deaf mutes vio boarded an high
avenue car at Thirty-fifth street, N. Y.,
good-looking young man and a pretty you1
woman, made tho' fingers fly lye knittii
needles as they "talked" to each other, as
their eyes snapped and twinkled as so
happy or brilliant thought was thrown
from their finger ends. A tall, lean mi
with a western beard and ears was deep
interested in the young couple, but his i
terest, judging from the expression of I
face, was of a gloomy nature. At last
sighed, or, to speak more accurately, I
suspiration took the form of a half-supprei
ed grunt, and turning to the reporter ]
"Stranger, it's a sad sight to see t

The reporter suggested that that was
good deal likb talking behind one's back.
"That's jest what it is, stranger. I knov

U .IINTs IN ROAD MAKINO.-Thore Is no
1g class of the community that is more af
19 focted by the condition of highways
id than farmers. Upon them are trans
'I0 ported whatever surplus products the
>ff farm affords, and upon them the farmer
in depends for his opportunities to pass
ly fromt one neighborhood to another.
n- Now so far as the transportation of
tis heavy loads Is concerned the amoutit
lie that can be transported bears a direct
is proportion to the condition of the road
s- bed and its devllvity; both of which
t e may be combined to greatly reduce the
load, or either alone may be the means
vo of measuring the load that can easily
er pass along without serious hindrances.
.I; Aside fromn that class of obstacles which
to may be properly considered as lusur
mountable, in all cases roads should be
ni,mproved'In every direction and by all
n practical means. Other things being
k equal, the more firm the rcad bed, the
better it is for travel, and also the better
for conveying loads. But very frequent
fu ly the road passes over such a variety
,d of soils, even in moderate distances, as
0, to present a variable surface; where
id ever such cases occur they can be
el amoended by artificial means, that Is if
it a portion should be sandy, by the addi
Il' tion of a little dry or compact earth its
condition will be so changed as to make
a it much harder and better able to sus
taiu a load. Atmospheric conditions
v, may also very materially atIeet tempor
e arily tho surface of a travelled road,
n aside from those changes occasioned by
I frost; thus a clayey road which' would
Ir be rendered exceedingly muddy after a
i' severe shower would be very much iml
e proved by the use of sand and gravel.
i Where the soil is inclined to moisture,
t a partial system of underdrainage will
not only prevent mud at the time of
l showers, but will also very Iuch as-ilst
v in inaltalhing t good condition when
he frost is coming out in tihe sprng,
whltien otherwise would render it ttlm
if passable. As a general rule, In the re

itals of Europe. Within the last hun
dred years many attempts have been
made to improve the breech-loading
systems and apply them toshot guns, but
with only partial success until in 1880.
Ml. Lefaueheux, of Paris, invented
what is known as the Lefaucheux pat
ent, and introduced cartridge eases made
of paper and brass, or what is called
the "Pin Fire" cartridge case. This
cartridge ease was a most Important and
valuable addition to the breech-loading
systems, as it practically and effectually
closed up the breech of the gun and
prevented the'eseape of the exploded
gases in that directlon at the moment
of diseharge, and, consequently, caused
a range and penetratlon of shot equal
to that of good muzzle-loading gunls.
In England these new InventIons
were not favorably received, and it was
not untIl the large and exeelient dis
play of breeeh-loading guns, made by
Leutaucheu x and ether Paris gun
makers, in the Lo,ndon ExhibitIon of
1851, attracted such general attention
that tihe English gunmakers as a class
began the manufacture of simIlar guns.
During the pat twenty-five years the
most skilful gunenakcers in England
have given much time and ingenuity to
p)er fecting breech-loaders, and many
Improvements have been introdueed,
whIch have resulted In producing the
most perfect sporting guns ever made.
The double b reech-loading shot u tns,
made by James Purdey. & Sons, Lon
don, have never been equaled for finish,
qualty and. power, but they are very
expensive and only owned by sports
men of tine tastes and abundant means.
The guns made by Charles L!ncaster,
Stephen Grant, Westley Richards & Co.,
WV. & C. Scott & Son, P. Webley & Son,
W. W. Greener & Co., are less costly
and within the reach o1 most sportsmen.
In this country tihe talents of Invent
era have been largely directed to m--.
proving breech-leading lire arms, In
ritles and pistols particularly, and our
readers are, no doubt, familiar with the
names of Colt, Allen, Sharps, Rollin
WVhite (inventor of the original
patent used by Smith & Wesson
and known 1a8 theirs) Remington
and others. The perfection at
tained in this country in the manu
facture of metallic cartridges gave an
immense impetus to the perfecting of
breech-loading rIfles and pistols, and
the United St.ates now stands at tile
head of all nations as the producer of
the best and most effective ruled arms
for mnilitary or sporting p)urposes.
Bly,the application of machinery these
arms have been mad e at the various
private armories in immense quantities,
fin ishedl so perfectly alike in all parts
that every piece ma interchtangable In
every arm of the same class and pattern ;
but as shot guns require to be made
of so many various bores, wveights,
lengths, bends, qualities, &0., it was dif
ficult to produce them by means of ma
chinery. 'Tho Wesson Arms Co. and
:Ethan Allen & Co., about 1870, at.
tempted this, biut were only partially
successful and soon abandoned it. Af
terwards, by adopting a few fixed
models as to bore, weighmt, &c., and a
limited variety of st.yles of finishi and
quality, the application of machinery
to such work became practicable, and

I3AKINU, BOILING AND BROILING.-in1
baking, see that the furnace or oven is O
properly heated ; some dishes require a
more heating than others. Look at the t
object in progress of baking from time a
to time, especially at the beginning; o'
turn it round, if necessary, in ease it '
be heated more on one side than the
other, to prevent burning. In baking
neat and fish, besides keeping the bot- r
torn of the pan covered with broth or
water, place a piece of buttered paper
over the object in the pan. It not only
prevents it from burning, but acts as a
self-basting operation, and keeps the d
top moist and juicy. If the top of a t'
cake bakes faster than the rest, place a
piece of paper on it. Boiling it the b
moat abused branch in cooking. We 3
know that many well-meaning house- -a
wives, and even professional cooks, I
boil things that ought to be prepared i
otherwise, with a view to economy; b
but a great many do It through laziness. "
Boiling requires as mIuch care as any
other branch, but they do not think so,
and thertforo indulge in it. Another 2
ibuetilis to boll fast instead of slowly. I
ot !mall ocean of water on a brisk r
tire and boll something in it as fast as f
you can, you make much steam but do d
not cook faster, the degree of heat be- f
lug the same as if you were boiling I1
slowly. If the object you boil, and es
pecially boll fast, contains any flavor, tt
you evaporate it, and cannot bring it a
back. Many things are spoiled or part- t
ly destroyed by boiling, such as meat, t
coffe, etc. Water that has beon.bolled a
is inferior for cooking purposes, its
gases and alkali belug evaporated. In i
broiling, grease the bars of the gri
iron first. Broiling and roasting are d
bhe same thing; the object in process
of cooking by either must be exposed to
lhe heat on one side and the other side
Lo the air. Bear in mind that no one
can broil or roast in an oven vhatever
be Its construction, its process of heat-g
ing, or Its kind of heat. An object
cooked in an oven is baked. It Is better
to brpil before than over the hre. In
broiling before the fire all the juice can
be saved. In broiling by gas there is a
great advantage. The meat is placed
under the heat, and as the heat draws
the Juice of the meat the consequence
is that ths juice being attracted upward
it is retained in the meat. A gas
broiler is a square flat drun, perforated o
)m one aido and placed ever a frame. ?
l'u broil on live -coals or on cinders "
without a gridiron, Is certainly not C
better than with one, as believad by a
mnany; ou the contrary, besides not ti
being very clean. It burns or chars part o
f the meat. That belief comes from '
Ltie fact that when they partook of y
ineat prepared in that way it was with 1e
t sauce that generally accompanies
hunters, fishermen, ote., hunger, the
tost savory of all sauces. q

MANAGEMENT OF BULLS.-Bulls kept
up in stables, or confined in any way,
so as to allow of but one service, would
serve more than twenty times the nuin
ber they would if with the cows with
out restriction. A yearling bull in
good health is the most totive of any
age, and although in good common
herds there was neve any ill result
from using bulls so young, and they
were generally preferred, breeders o1
pure-breds doubt a yearling's get being
as good as at 2 y ears old. Experience,
running from 1825, with all breeds of
cattle, has shown that by proper man.
agenent a bull can sire from 50 to 20(
calves per year without any injury t<
himself or issue. As a bull becomet
older he generally lessens in his desire
for repeated connections, but I have
known many bulls continue to sirt
calves till twelve years, and one purc
Shorthorn, of such character as to liav(
from 80 to 120 cows on an averag(
every year, which held out a sure steel
getter till he was sixteen years old
When the cows are not in lheat, ard nt
outside cows are near to entice the bulb
to break through the fence, a good tem
pered bull is as well to run with thern
and as a bull is the hardiest and strong
ostconstitutioned of all the bovine ruci
it is folly to give hint anything but th(
plainest fare, High, feverish feedini
and unnatural treatment. cause bulls t(
grow sterile, and tile talk and writing
about feeding bulls or raais extra whet
they have cows or owes to serve, i
most of it nonsense. On the othei
hand, well. bred antimals cannot have
too much succulent food, so that tlte)
eat it all up every meal, and even ii
the summer during drouths, when pas
tures have dried grass on them, it i
good management to have some crop o
young forage, such as second growth
clover not fully in bloom, Iungariai
grass before it is headed out, rape, sow
edl sweet corn, or any nice young fresl
herbnge which oan be given them til
rain comes, and pistures are green anm
nutritious agalia. Always have oil--akl
on hand, for should all else be lacking
that will be a substitute, and is food an<
medIcine-a perfect charm.
