THE FAHMKK'S THANKSGIVING.
The earth is brown and skiea are gray,
And the windv wooda are bare.V
And the first white flake of the coming
Are afloat in the frosty air,
But the sparks fly up from the hickory
On the homestead's broad stone
hearth, ' ' ,
And the windows shake,' and the raf
ters ring, "
To the lads' and the lassies' mirth.
The farmer's face Is furrowed and worn:
And his locks are thirfand white, ,
Rut hU hand is steady, his voice is clear,
And his locks are thin and white,
And he turns to look at his sweet old
wife, .,.. -Who
sits in her gown of gray, ''
With the cobweb kerchief and creamy
She wore on her wedding day.
He bows hit head to the laden board
And the guests they are silent all.
'Thanksgiving, Lord, for the sua and
rain, ' .-
And the fruit on the orchard wall.
For the silver wheat, and the golden
And the crown of a peaceful life
The greatest blessing that thou canst
A true and a loving wife!"
This white haired lover he bends to kiss
' Her hand in its frill of lace
And the faded rose on her wrinkled
With a proud and courtly grace,
And the snowrlakes click on the win
And the rafters rinir above.
And the angels sing at the gate of Ood
The words of the farmer's love.

The work of running a dairy re

part of the work must be performed
every day, and at as nearly the

A characteristic of the Jersey

It has been said that the Ameri
can hog is a combined machine for
reducing the bulk in corn and en

humane side of it, too.
You never found a dairyman who
was a liberal feeder who did not
make a good profit from his cows,
provided that he had good cows;
you never saw a farmer who took

The autumn is an excellent time

necessary to wait until leaves have
fallen, but transplant at any time
from September until the ground
freezes, cutting oil the leaves.
In planting an orchard do not hope
to include all the Kinds you ever

so much of the tar, and no more.
The varieties of strawberries
famous 20 years ago have nearly all
disappeared. We can not tell just
why this is, but it is well to raise
new seedliugcontinually. Varieties
seem to degenerate when cultivated
for a long time in one locality, and

Grapes grow upon the new wood

All of the miners discovered the
bank was giving way in time to get
out except young Murney, who was
right under the bank and was buried
about seven feet under the dirt and
rock. Several men were put to work
at once to get him out, and after
about 100 tons of rock and dirt were
removed it was found tha. every
bone in his body was broken.

How to Make a Fortune.
The following are extracts from a
letter written by Henry
Beecher to his son:
"You must not go into debt,
debt as you would the devil,
it a fundamental rule: No
cash or nothing."
"Make few promises.. Religiously
observe the smallest. A man who
means to keep his promises can't af
ford to make many."
"Be scrupulously careful In all
statements. Accuracy and perfect
frankntBS, no guess work. Either
nothing or accurate truth."
Make yourself necessary to those
who employ you by industry, fidelity
and scrupulous integrity. Selfish
ness is fatal."
Hold yourself responsible for a
higher standard than anybody else
expects of vou. Demand more of
yourself than anybody expects of
you. Keep your own standard high.
Never excuse yourself to yourself.
Never pity yourself. Be a hard
master to yourself, but lenient to
"Concentrate your force on your
own business; do not turn off. Be
constant, steadfast, presevering."
'Do not BDeculate or iramble.
Steady patient industry is both the
surest and the safest way. Greedi
ness and haste are two devils that
destroy thousands every year."
"The art of making one s fortune
is to spend nothing. In this country

A Thirteen Month Tear.
It is suggested that on Jan. 1, 1900,
a new division of the year into 13
months be instituted. If such a division
were made, the first 12 months would
have 28 days, or four weeks each, and
the new month 29 days, to make 865,
and 30 in leap years. After a few days
there would bo no need to refer to calen
ilars, as the same day of the week would
havo the same date through the year.
If Jan. 1 were, say, Monday, every Mon
day would bo tho 1st, 8th, 15th and 22d;
every Tuesday the 2d, 9th, 16th and
23d, and fo on through tho year The
changes of the moon would bo on about
the same dates through tho year, and
many calculations, like interest, dates
of maturing notes, Easter and many
other important dates would be simpli
