The Order of tihe 6oodon Fleece.
The name of the Golden Fleece had
a two-fold signification. It meant to
typify the spirit of chivalrous adven
ture-of going into new lands to con
quer new fame-the same spirit which
actuated the Argonauts of legend, who
went in search of the Golden Fleece.
But there was also the religious idea.
The Savior has been represented under
the form of a lamb. To win His re
demption by "knightly" deeds, in the
best signification of that noble wor ,
was obviously an object of the new so
ulety of chivalry. Iigh privileges
were early conferred on the Knights
of the Flecce,whoso numbe'r was orig
inally limited to thirty-one. When the
Counts of Egmont and Hori were
Illegally executed under tihe rt ign of
Philip II. on account of the stand they
made for the liberties of their country,
they both appealed against the sent
ence, alleging, amoug other reasons,
that as Kalghts of the Fleece.they had
the right to be tried by their brother
knights. After the war of the Spanish
siccession, which loft a Bourbon on
the throne bf Spain, there arose a dis
pute between the Emperor and the
King of Spain as to which of them had
the right to the sovereignty of the or
tier. The question was anL extremely
complicated one. The Emperor
Charles VI., as heir male of the ips
burgs, might fairly claiu the knightly
heritage as his right. On the other
hand Philip of Bourbon might arge
descent through an heiress .nd ilead
that In Spain and the Low Countries
the Salle law had never been recogniz
ed. Tihe matter was finally arranged
through treaty, the Emperor and King
of Spain being recognized as joint
grandmasters oi the order, with equal
power to name knights. 'liMo Aistrian
and Spanish badges of tie order aie
almost though not, quite identical in
form. Each has the well-known col
lar of gold and il nt-stones, with the
typleal device, "Ante forlt quani 1 im
ma micat,'' though the nobler legend
runs-'"'Pretium nor. vile labot em."

I1 WIC AND RABrBTfl GNAWING TwRiEs.
-Every winter the agricultural jour
nals contain inquiries aq to a remedy
to prevent mice and rabbits inawing
trees and we have nearly annuially an.
swered them. Our remedy, which we
have tried with success, has proved
effectual in every Instance in which it
has been properly applied. It is to
bandage the trees with any old cotton
or woolen cloth, or very stiff paper
will do. For mice, vight or ten Inches
high will answer; for rabbits, not less
than two feet. The latter standing
upright can reach up very nearly two
feet as far as they can reach they will
guaw. Tile same cloth, if ptt away,
will last for several years. Of cours.,
the bandaging must be well done and
tied to the trees securely. In gardens,
where trees are suro to be found if
there are any in tho vicinity a good
protection is to feed them with cab
bage-stalks, or decayed heads of cab
bage, ollals of rutabagas, carrots, hay.
etc. A "dead trap,'' baited with apr
pl, will also soon clear a garden; but,
if in a starving condition, a hali doz
en rabbits will destroy fifty young
trees in a singlo night. One winter
they not only injured several young
pear trees for us, but nipped off the
tender ends of certain shrubs as cleai
ly as it doun with pruning shears,

COOoa.-Many different kinisd . or
cocoa are now advoertused,but when tihe
nibs are properly prepared there can
be no dou bt that the cocoa made from
them is less heavy and more digestible
than that obtained li1 other ways.
Bruise one fourth pound of best Tr in
idad cocoa nibs in a mortar, add two
quarts of water and boll slowly eight
hours. Then strain and piour into bot
tles. It will keep fresh for several
dya. feat the quantity required for
breakfast., and servo in a kettle, with a
spirit lal) underneath, as it Is most
important. that the cocoa should be
hot. Bulled milk should be served up
at the .anno table. This method of
tireparing tine cocoa enables tihe house
keeper to have it always ready at hand
to heat as required in a few inimutes.
She I cocoa Is cheaper; it must be boil
ed very klowly, the pr-portions of wa
ter being one quart to a breakfazt a
cupful of the shell. After straining
let it get cold, then skin off all the oil,
and give it another boll before serving.
Another economical way of making
cocoa is to take threo handfuls of shell
cocoa arid one ounce of pounded nibs;
boll them ii water three or four hours
the day before the cocoa Is wanted.

unexpectedly, staLed in bed until the
fire wvas kindled and inhaled more true

An tngonmous drilling machine has
been devised for enlarging the lower
or Inner ends of holes for blasting
purposes, so as to admit a large charge
of powder being placed at one polnb.
To accomplish this a tube Is employed
which has its upper end provided with
screw threads, on which Is screwed a
Jaw nut, and upon the end of the tube
is screwed a cap, having radial arms.
Through the centre of the cap is passed
a rod, having a thumb nut screwed on
its upper end; this rod extends down
to the bottom of the hole, and its lower
end is forked and has a curved bit or
cutter pivoted thereon. The latter
projects through a hole in the side of
thie tube at the lower end, and within
the tube is a slotted guide piece which
prevents the cutter being drawn up
with the tube. After the ua3ual hole
has been drilled, this instrument is In
sorted in the hole to any desired depth
and then rotated. By screwing down
the thumb nut the cutter is gradually
fed outward through the slot, thus
maklug an enlarged chamber at the
bottom of the hole, so as to apply an
increased charge of powder,
