ONE LINK GONE.
Linea affectionately dedicated to Mrt. F. M.
Bathberij '?n the death of little Mamie.
Ah! yes, one link gone from the silver chain j
That bound your heatt s* firmly here;
One link gone still clover to bind
Your Heart to tho treasure"o'er there."
Orys little heart that is stilled forever,
Never to throb t\ ith sorrow again,
Safely at rest In that "far bright Ileavch,"
Gone from the world *f sin and pain.
Marble-like lips, so cold in Ljcir stillness,
Lips that have prattled so sweetly their lbvcj
Lips that the angels now are tuning,
To join in thr.ir chorus of praises above.
Soft little hands folded softly together,
Like twin lilies so spotless and pure;
Dear little hands that only have dealt with
All things sinless, stainless and true.
Two little feet that e'en now are treading
Their wav through the streets of ihe "City of
Feet, the good shepherd safely has guided
Into the door of Ins heavenly fold.
Lily bright hair that oft you have fondled,
Away from the brow with a ling'ring caress;
Ah ! how gently the Saviour has gathered
That bright little head to His sheltering
Xu, baby's not dead, only "gone before"
Up to that world of love so bright,
Away from the sorrow and from the weeping,
Out of the darkness?into the light!
And though they hive laid the casket away
Under the dasies, under the sod,
Just wlicf'e the sunshine may Ibtlnglj liiiger?
Sumhinc of Ilcavcn? sunshine of God.
Yet, mother don't let your heart be sighing,
Or grieve for your baby absent?dead ;
Don't let iU fondest hope* be buried
Down in (hat cold, that narrow bed.
Tut look upwat'd, picas onward, faith the star
To guide your fee: up the mansions of love.
And let hope whisper fondly, when .tad in your
Of the blessed reunion that waits you above.
And then when ndown "the rolling fiver'
Yon, foo, float by the "sunset lea,"
Softly you pass from the evening shadows
Into the light where she waits for thee

A Sudden Changn of Mind.
A few days ago a tall, rough looking
mountaineer entered the Union Railroad
ticket office at Denver, and through mis
take purchased a ticket for New York
via the Kansas Pacific Line, when be
wanted to go over the Union Pacific;
lie did not discover this fact until after
the ticket bad been paid for, and on ask
ing tho agent to change it be refused to
"You won't change this ticket, then,
won't you ?"
"No, sir," replied the agent ; "you
have your ticket and 1 have the money
for it and if you want a ticket over the
other route, you will have to buy it."
Very*piietly, the stranger* twisted Iiis
ticket into a small roli; very serenely
be drew *roin under his right coat-tail a
six-shooter about the dimensions of a
mountain howitzer; coolly and deliber
ately be stuck the twisted ticket into the
muzzle of that six-shooter, and sticking
the ugly looking thing through tho little
square window of the ticket office, and
almost in the agent's face, and speaking
in the tone that left no doubt of his de
termination, said :
"Stranger, thar's that ticket; take it
yourself aud j-hango it, or I'll blow it
Tanner is to raise them. To do this, be
niuVtJceep them better than they are
generarfyc kept?give them better feed
and botterwielter in winter. I will toll
you how I raiserijy calves:
When two or thr?&days old, I teach
the calf to drink, givTh^git milk warm
from the cow. As soon as rthas learned
to drink, I give it skimmed nufk warmed
a little, to which I add a small quantity
of corn meal, about a tnblcspoonfuk^at
first, aud gradually increase it to one
two handfuls, with as much wheat brrrj
if I have any. I givo tho calf this mc
three times a day, until it can get plot
of grass, then twico a day through
fall, winter and spring, until it can ge,
good bite of grass the second summer.
Tho amount of corn meal each c|
consumes by the timo it is ono year o|
I.estimate \fi worth about five dolli
jand 1 thiuk tbey uro enough diehefltted
to more than' pay for it* I also give
them a little corn meal thrice a day tho
second winter. There is an old saying
that "blood will tell." I know that feed
will toll, for my stock, both old and
young, show it ni eizo and condition.
And I believe that farmers in this coun
try can, talcing good common .stock to
breed from, With proper care and treat
ment, raise as good milkers as they do
on the other side of the water. Why
not? Their good food and good care has
made their valuable stock what it Is;
Why cannot the same result be reached
I with our common cattle here ? Of course
it would take time to do it; it took time
f to do it. there. Their Jerseys; Ayrshirca
and other valuable breeds were not orig
inally what they arc to day, but with
[*extra good feed and care, and selecting'
the best to breed from, they have reach
ed .their present high state of perfection.

Not many days ago at a camp-meeting

"Worse than that," faintly shrieked

"Brethren," said the preacher, raising
his eyes toward the congregation, "let us

For some time past the farmers in the
immediate vicinity of the phosphate man
ufactories upon Charleston Neck have
he-en suffering seriously from injury in
dicted upon their crops by the vapor of J
the sulphuric acid used in rendering the
phosphate soluble. * The vapor condenses
and falls upon the plants, stunting their]
growth and injuring them irreparably.
A large meeting of farmers was held yes
terday at Dr. A. B. Hose's farm, near
the Racecourse, when n circular letter to
the presidents of the various phosphate
companies was drawn up and signed.
The letter sets forth full and clearly the
grievance under whicn the farmers have
been suffering, and concludes by asking
that the chemists of the companies be in
structed to devise some means of prevent
ing a perpetuation of the grievance- Tlic
letter also states that incase the farmer'?
suggestions fail to be favorably received
by the companies, application for re
dress will be made to the legislature.?
The subject will also be further consider
ed at the next meeting of tho executive
committee of the Agricultural Society of
South Caaoliiia, which takes placo on
next Saturday afternoon.?Charleston

To Hake Cows Give Milk.
A writer who says his cyw gives all
the milk.that is wanted in a family of
eight person's*; Hud from which was made
two hundred and sixty pounds of butter
this year, gives the following as his treat
ment. He says:
"If you desire to get a large yield of
rich milk giVe your cow every day water
slightly warm, slightly salted, tu which
bran has. been stirred at the rato of one
qitaft to two gallon?": of water. You will
find if you have not triad this daily
practice that your cow will give twenty
five per cent, more milk immediately un
der the effects of it, ami she will become
so attached to tho diet as to refuse to
?rlnk clear watet* unless Very thirsty;
but this mess she will drink almost any
time aud ask for more.
The amount of this drink necessary is
an ordinary water pailful nt a time,
morning, noon and night.
Four hundred pounds of butter are
often obtained from good stock, and in
stances arc mentioned where the yield
was even a higher figure." ?

When Burke made one of his famous
attacks upon the crown civil list he was
several times noisily interrupted by
somebody who occupying an official
position in the household; seemed to
think himself the special guardian and
champion of royalty. This officious per

Burke paused in the flow of his speech,
and declared that he perfectly understood
it tobe his duty to honor the king, but
