V The Drunkard's Son.
His clothes are torn and shabby, too,
Care's marks are on lijs face
And of the seid ling bitter learn,
There is a certain trace.
He feels the pitying look of scorn
That falls upon him now,
And as his heart with sorrow bleeds,
Ho wipes his moistened brow.
J/e hears the whispered words that fall
From lips of youth and age,
J/c's turned thus early in his life
O'er many a bitter page,
And when he hears bright, merry boys,
Tell of their father's fame,
J/e sighs to think that he must bear
A drunken father * shame.
And though he bravely struggles on
In weary paths of life,
J/e knows his way is llowcrlcss
And full of weary strife;
J/e knows and feels the deep disgrace
That darkens every joy,
And shades the sunbeams on his way?
J/e is a drunkard's boy.
? O, take him kindly by the hand,
And lead his steps aright,
Help him with sympathy and love
To battle for the Right.
Let not despair his young heart fill
Lest dark temptation win
Him to the devious ways of wrong,
f)f misery and sin.
[Farm rmrl Grci-rtleru
" AyricAtUiire is the General Tnrsuit of man: It
is the. Jtusis of nil others, ami therefor, the
nto.?/ Useful ami Honorable."
It is remarkable, that more attention
is not given to the subject of covering
manure from weather, and especially
from too much rain. Tlioss who have
given the matter particular attention
have found that manure so projected is
vorth " double" that which is left out in
the open air. Two loads for one is a
profit few farmers can afford to lose.
There is no question which so vitally con
cerns the fanner as this one of manure.
Much that lie docs has reference to it.
Straw is not to be sold, because it makes
manure. Stock is fed through the win
ter for the express purpose of manure
making. Articles which scarcely pay to
scud to market, uro nevertheless taken to
the city in order that manure may be
brought hack as a return load ; and yet j
the whole of the manure made remains
all the season exposed to the sun, wind
and rain, 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 hu3 boon too
thoroughly tested to admit of a doubt.
"We know lirst-elass 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
grsiin ; and those who have their build
ings already finished without these ina
nurial arrangements will find that twen
ty-five or fifty dollars spent in boards for
a covered shed will rank among the best
investments ever made.?[(i krma vr< >wx

cup so that it w ill not be in lumps. .Add
as much powdered rosin as will lie on a

give it a pleasant odor. Put a tea-cup

in the Hour mixture.

a tub nearly lull of rain or river water,
and put two pieces of thin wood cross it,
and set the beef on them, distant about
an inch from the wahr. I leap as much
salt as will staud on your beef, and let it
remain twenty-four hours, then take the
meat off and boil it, and you will find it
as salt as if it hud been pickled for six
weeks, the water having drawn the salt
completely through the beef.

How they Dispose of the Dead.
The Chinese bury upon n hill-side; n
perpendicular wall is cut in which a cayo
is scooped out. In this tho dead Celes
tial is laid ; and, in order that he mnv
not suffer the pangs of hunger, rice and
other articles of food arc deposited with
in the tomb.
Tho Egyptians make of their dead
what arc called "mummies." When a
person dies in that country, ho.is first
embalmed, then wrapped in a great many
layers of cloth, aud, 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, whoso 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 w ar by his side. Another tribe erects
a scaffold on which dead bodies arc laid.
Here they arc allowed to remain until
picked to pieces by vultures, when the
skulls arc taken down, and placed in a
circle around tho scaffold. The Latoo
kas bury in their own yards, near their
huts, and ornament the graves with
chicken feathers and trinkets of wood
and iron; but when they think the un
fortunate African has lain long enough
for decomposition to take place, bis bones
are taken up und thrown outside the vil
lage. A great many other mode.-" might
be. mentioned, but these must suffice.

For an instant Freddy's eyes were fix

Little friends, what was the difference
in the answers of the two boys? Neither

And which was the happier of the two?
