Hluff and B3lue.
One bright summer morning as I
cane in sight of the school-house, I no
ticed a crowd about the door and heard
loud laughing and cheers. From rude
boys came cries of "Circus dancers,"
"Indian pappooses," etc.
Hurrying on, I was soon among [hem.
I asked. "What is It children ?
A chorus of voices answered me, but
I understood nothing. Int the centre
of the circle were two little girls.
"These little strangers seem fright
ened to death," said 1.
One quick-witted boy replied. "They
are frightened to dumb;" and then the
children began to toll how they had
asked many questions, but the little
girls had not onco moved their lips, and
some of the boys had named them
"Deaf and Dumb."
I wish you could have seen thenjust
as they stood there hand In hand, their
dark, chubby faces each peeping out
from a large white sunbounot, starched
very still'. They were dressed just
alike, each in a bright yellow dress
and a long bluo,apron made with long
sleeves and high in the neck. One wa.
a little taller tian the other, but aside
from that, tney were as much alike as
"two peas iII at pod.11"
"Good morning, little girls,", said 1.
They ach tlastonel their dark brown
eyes on tme but scarcely winked then,
and spoke not it word.
" IV hat is your namie11" stid I, look
Ing at tihe older of the two.
They had evidently been prepared
for this question, for they both said in
the Is11m111 breath. "Alrle Dollon,"
"l'hese alre two little Irenchl clil
dren," I explalled, leading them Into
tile School 10011, where I took off their
bonnets and gave tlheml h.eats, telling
the children we iiust, be kind to little
1.four.d itvery hard to inluIence1 somlie
of theill, however. They had maIltde I)
their tni ndk5 to "J"Oke Al1l1I" at the queer
looking little folks. I heard on1e of tihe
boYs sa1y, "Let's eall them "Blue Ind

FARU AND GARDEN.
To INUREASE THIE VALUE OF A COw.
-Everyone who owns a cow can see at
a glance that It would be profitable to
increase the value of her, but eieryone
can not tell how to do it, If a cow Is
kept for butter, it would certainly add
to her value if the butter-making prop
erties of her ilk should be Improved.
In summer or winter this can be im
proved just as the yield of a cultivated
crop can be Improved by what Is fed to
each; and it is simply a question of
will It pay in manuring the one and
feeding the other. Indian corn will
add to the quAntity and qualLy of the
butter to a sensible degree; and it Is
simply a question of solution by exper
Iment whether it will add to the profit
of the butter-maker to buy corn at one
or two cents a pound and convertp por
tion of It into butter at twenty-five
cents a pound, or whatever the market
price of corn and butter may be, and
another portion of It into fat, another
portion of it into manure, for that Is
the natural result of the chemical
change produced in the laboratory of
the cow's stomach. The same result
will follow any other kind of feeding.
Good pastures will produce an abun
dance of milk, often as much as tihe
cow oan carry; but it does not follow
that even then It will not be profitable
to feed her with some more oleagenous
food,to increase the quality of tile but
ter, just as it sometimes proves proilta
ble to feed bees to enable them to store
more honey. it certainly does appear
to me that the value of a cow, feeding
upon ordinary winter food, may be in
creased by giving her food suitable
foi tile purpose of increasing the qual
ity of milk, If that Is the purpose for
which the cow Is kept, Farmers gen
orally understand that they can con
vert corn Ilto beef, pork and lard, and
some of them know exactly at what
price per bushel i; pays to colivert it
Into these substances; but doesany one
know at what rate It will pay to'con
vert corn or any other grain Into but
ter, or any olher kind of feed In the
(lairy products? 1s the whole business
i liaplazard ono? Some personi know
that they can increase the salable value
of butter by ahhing the coloring matter
of carrots to It. Does any person know
the value of a bushel of carrots, fed to
a cow, to Increase her value as a but
ter-produehng laboratory? Ex pei
mental proof 111)011 thi3 lint woufd be
far more worthy of agricultural prizes
than it I to see who can show tihe larg

tuced experiments we should be able
to increase the value of a cow almost, at

LEAtNINO TO SEw. -To be handy
with the needle, 18 one of the sterling
accomplishments of every educated
woman. To be able to take the "stitch
in time," is worth all the time and
trouble that are required to learn the 1
art. Like witIking, reading, and the
many other things which we come to
do without special thought, the learn- J
ing to sew is a slow process, and
should be begun while the child Is
still quite young. The girl. should not
only have tile use of the thread, needles,
and patchwork, but be Instructed
how to take the stitches, turn corners,
and do the varlous tihings connected
with needle-work. We are notexclud.
lug the boys in our remarks, because
they need to learn to thioad a needle,
and do general sowing. Men are many
times so situated, that they must do
pond upon themselves for their neces
sary sewing. Even if It is an age o. 0
sewing machlines, it Is best that all
children should learn to use tile simple,
common old-fashioned kind, which can
never be wholly superseded. The
aimusenictt and occupatlon that sowing
furnishes little folks, afllord sufficient I
reason why all mothers should see C
that, their girls, and boys too, learn to (
sew-but the very practical us of the t
needle in after life, Is the principal C
titing alfter all.
HOw TO MAKE GOOD COFFEE.-'0-here
tire two things wilch should be lir-t c

be well washed and rinsed. Some
house-keepers leave the grounds and

to day ; When they want to use it they
only rinse out the grounds. This habit 8
is i very poor one as it wears out the A
coll'be pot and in a short time spoils tle V
colle. Second. always measure the
aiount of water; have a dipper or
some dish that will hold just enough

Wste, for every housewife knows how
much coffee her family consumes, so
she can tell how much waller to use. We 1

A in the telephone and microphone. At
a a i ecent meeting of the Paris Acadamy,
e M. Paul Bert described a tele-milro
3 phone, which transmits speech well,
i though spoken to at some little d1stance.
a In it two important modifications of the
ordinary apparatus are introduced.
The first consists in substitution of a
comparatively thick plate of hardened
rubber for the thin membrance con
monly employed; the other is a new
way of regulating the microphone.
The fixed carbons passes through the
y plate; the other is carried by a small
I pivoted rod of iron, the nobility of
which depends on the position given to
e a small magnet which forms part of the
a mcehanism. Tie author recommends
e the simplicity and precIsion of this
o ode of regulating as nuch preferable
to the various kinds of springs hitherto
proposed. It need hardly be added that

Dear 81r.-'lhe great benefit I have received
from the use of Vogetine induces me to give
my testimony in its favor. For several years
my face has beon covered with pimples, whloh
caused me much annoyance, and, knowing it
to be a blood disease, I consulted a number of
doctors, and also tried many preparations with
out obtaining any bnelilt. until I commenced
taking Vegetine, and before I had us'd tie first
bottle I saw I had Ihe right medieno. I have
used three boti les and find my health much im
