The Drunkard s Son;
His clothes are torn and shabby, too,
Care's marks are on Ii!? face,
And of the seid ling bitter team,
There is a certain trace.
He feels the pitying look of scorn
That Tails upon him now,
And as bis heart with sorrow bleeds,
Ho wipes his moistened brow.
J/e hear* the whisjtercd words that fall
Froitl lips of youth and age,
J/e's turned tint* early in his life
O'er many a bitter page,
And when he hears bright, merry bovB,
Tell of their father's fame,
J/e sighs to think that he must hear
A drunken father's shame.
And though he bravely struggles on
In weary paths of life,
"J/e knows his way is llowerle-s
And full of weary strife;
J/e knows and feels the deep disgrace
That darkens every joy,
And shades the sunbeams on his way?
7/e is a drunkard's boy.
O, take him kindly by the hand,
>lnd lead his steps aright,
Help him with sympathy ami love
To battle for the Right.
Let not despair his young heart fill
Lest dark temptation win
Him to the devious ways of wrong,
Of miserv ami sin.

" Ayrir.uliure is the Oeneral 1*ur#uit of man: It
is the Jlatix of all ollierf, ami therefore, the
tnwt Uneful anil Ifonorable.
It is remarkable that more attention
is uot given to the subject of covering
manure from weather, and especially
fV?in too much rain. Thosa who have
given tho matter particular attention
have fount] that manure .so projected is
worth "tlouhlo" that, which is left out in
the open air. Two loads for one is si
profit few farmers can afford to lose.
There is no question which so vitally con
cerns the farmer as this one of manure.
Much that he docs has reference to it.
Straw is not to he sold, because it makes
manure. Stock is fed through the win
ter for the express purpose of manure
making. Articles which scarcely pay to
send to market, are nevertheless taken to
the city in order that manure may he
brought back as a return load ; and yet
the whole (if the manure made remains
all the season exposed to tho sun, wind
and rtiin, until it is diminished in value
to so great an extent as it is.
The trouble is probably 'hat few really
believe that exposed manures undergo
this loss. But the matter has been loo
thoroughly tested to admit of a doubt.
"We know first-class farmers who did not
themselves believe it, until by actual ex
periment they found out its truth.
In arranging farm buildings it will
pay well to look as much to the pres
ervation of the manure as of the hay or
grain ; ami those who have their build
ings already finished without these ina
nurial arrangements will lind that twen
ty-five or fifty dollars sp ot in hoards for
a covered shed will rank among the best
in vest incuts ever made.?[g eem a n'town

as much powdered rosin as will lie on :t

give it a pleasant odor. Tut a tea-cup

in the Hour mixture.
Boil lor fifteen minutes; if cooked in
another pan of boiling water it will he

To Pickle Meat in One Day.?Get
a tub nearly full of rain or river water,
and put two pieties of thin wood cross it,
and set the beef on them, distant about
an inch from the water. ll?:tp as much
salt as will stnud on your beef, and let it
remain twenty-four hours, then take the
meat off and boil it, und you will find it
as salt as if it had been pickled for six
weeks, the water having drawn the stilt
completely through the heel*.

How they Dispose of the Dead.
The Chinese bury upon a hill-side; n
perpendicular wall is cut in which a cave
is scooped out. In this tho dead Celes
tial is laid ; and, in order that he may
not suffer tho pangs of hunger, rice and
other articles of food arc deposited with
in tho tomb. #
Tho Egyptians make of their dead
what are called "mummies." When a
person dies in that country, ho.is first
embalmed, then wrapped in a great many
layers of cloth, and, lastly, laid in a
sepulchre or tomb hewn out of rock.
This process of -embalming preserves
tho body so well that even the features
retain their shape hundreds of years.?
A few years since, a mummy, supposed
to be the body of an Egyptian princess,
was discovered, whose fa?o, though two
thousand years had elapsed since her
death, bore some traces of its original
One tribe of Indians bury their dead
in a sitting posture, with his implements
of war by his side. Another trihe erects
a scaffold on which dead bodies arc laid.
Here they are allowed to remain until
picked to pieces by vultures, when the
skulls arc taken down, and placed in a
circle around tho scaffold. The Eatoo
kas bury in their own yards, near their
huts, and ornament the graves with
chicken leathers and trinkets of wood
and iron ; but when they think the un
fortunate African has lain long enough
for decomposition to take place, his hones
are taken up and thrown outside the vil
lage. A great many other mode/ might
be mentioned, but these must suflico.
