The'jBeo Pastures of Mt. Shasta, ' ' . Sh wta is a firo-mountaln, created by a suceeion of erup'Ionsof ashes and molten lava, which, ilowing over the lips of its several craters, grew outward and upward like the trunk of a knotty exogenous tree. Then followed a strange contrist. The glacial winter came on,, loading the cooling mountain with ice which flowed slowly outward in every direction, radiating from the summit in the form of one vast conical glacier a down-falling mountain of ice upon a fountain of smoldering fire, crushing and grinding for centuries its brown tiinty lavas with incessant activ ity, and thus degrading and remodel ing the entire mountain. When, at length, the glacial period began to draw near its close, the ice-mantle was grad ually melted oil around the bottom, and, in receding and breaking into its frag mentary condition, irregular rings and heaps of moraine matter were stored upon it Hanks. iTue glacial erosion -of most of the Shasta lavas produced a detritus, composed off rough, 'subangu lar bowlders of 'moderate size, and por ous gravel and sand, which yields freely to the transporting power of running water. Under nature's arrangement, the nexi marked geological event made to take place in the history of Mount Shasta was a water-flood of extraordi nary maguitude, which acted with sub lime energy upon this prepared glacial detritus, sorting it out and carrying down immense quantities from the higher slopes, and redeposiug it in smooth, delta-like bed a around the base; and it is these flood-beds of moraine soil, thussuddehly aud simultaneously laid.down and joined edge to edge, that now form the main honey-zone. Thus, by forces seemingly antago nistic and destructive, has Mother Na ture accomplished her beneficent de signs now a flood of fire, now a floe of ice, hove a flood of water ; and then an outburst of organic life, a milky way of snowy petals and wings, girding the rugged mountain like a cloud, as if the vivifying sunbeams beating against its sides had broken into a foam of plant-bloom, and bees. In this lovely wilderness the bees rove and revel, rejoicing in the bounty of the sun, clambering eagerly through bramble and hucklebloom, stirring the clustered bells of the manzanita, now humming alog among polleny willows and firs, now dowa on the ashy ground among gilias and buttercups, ;ind anon plunginir deep into snowy banks of cherry and buckthorn The Shasta bees are uerhaps better fed than anv others in the sierra. Their field-work is one perpetual feast ; but however exhilarating the sunshine or bountiful the supply of flowers, they are always dainty feeders. Humming-moths and humming-birds seldom set foot upon a flower, but poise on the wing in front of it, and reach forward as if they were sucking through straws. But bees, though as dainty as they, hug their favorite flowers with profound cordiality, and push their blunt, polleny faces against them, like babies on their mother s bosom. The Century. Tho Army Worm. A correspondent of the Ionia Sentinel, (Mich.) of the loth inst., says: It is perhaps not generally known that the city of Ionia has been invaded by the army worm. Hearing that they were at work on the prairie between the Detroit, Grand Haven & Milwaukee Itoad and Grand lllver, we walked over there this forenoon to see. The story proves to be too true. The whole prairie iooks as li it nau oeen ournea over. Millions of the worms are at work, and almost every blade of grass has been attacked. They appeared some time last week on the piece of ground owned by lion. George V. Webber, and have been and appear to be still traveling west ward. They had not reached the high water roaa '. tnis morning, but were pushing on vigorously in that direction. Myriads of blackbirds, yellowbirds and robins were hoving over the place most infested, evidently making a meal of the worms 4 Just in front of the right flank of the army of worms is a corn field, and along the east fence, which separates it from the meadow, a line of blackbirds were stationed, in as crood order as if marshaled for a fight, under a military leadei . They would fly in a solid mass to the ground as if attacking something,' and then fall back to the position on the fence, from which they repeatedly ad vanced in a body. "Those birds,"? said John II. Welch, who was with us, "are protecting that corn.' Surely enough, examination showed that the pestiferous insects had come up to the fence, but had not gone an inch beyond, and none could be seen on the corn. But a large number of dead worms were found on the ground where the birds had been east of the fence. It is certain that the birds have made havoc with the worms, and it really looked as if they had a desire in it to keep then out of the corn field. Who will kjll .birds 'after, observing such things as tll?. .., Clover. Mr. N. Griffin, at the El mlra Farmer's Club, said: "There is no substitute for clover, so far as ' I know nothing to take its place. It is better In its effect on land than . any other forage plant It is said that a good crop of clover say such a crop as will yield two tons of cured hay from an acre will leave an equal weight of .roots for the soil. This is like a coat of manure. I am sorry to hear th-.it' clover' is falling into disre pute, for its renovating power is greater than that of any other plant. Lately clover does better than in a few years past, so I hope we shall soon have the old measure of success. Many years ago the farms of Duchess County used to give large crops of timothy and they were taken away and sold. The farms are now exhausted ruined because the crops were taken off. But clover is never taken off wbeu the roots are left. Forty-five yeari ago a great deal of timothy was raised in Tosnpkius Coun ty and the land that produced it ran down under its prod uttiou aud they had turn their attention to clover. At first it was difficult to get it eslablished, but little by little, under its influence, the land grew better. Farmers had to ditch their lands as the first condition. then they used plaster, and at last got full crops of clover and better crops 01 grain, for their land improved through clover. Ilungaiian grass has been tried, but, like timothy, when the crop is taken oft nothing is left and the soil becomes poor. The best crop is mat which leaves most to the soil, and that is what clover does." Cure for Scab on Sheep Tke fol lowing is said to be a certain remedy: Take strong leaf tobacco and boil in large kettles or vats. Make the amber strong enough to sparkle, and use when as hot as one can bear the hand in. For dipping, make a box five feet deep, fourteen inches wide, five feet long at top, and two feet long at bottom. Have the back end straight and front end hopper shaped. Nail cleats on the slanting end for the sheep to walk out . Set the vat four feet in the ground and make a platform to let the sheep come out on to drip, and let tne the liquid run back into the vat. in thU way there is none lost but what is taken to wet the wool on the sheep. The way to handle the sheep is this: Have a small pen near the vat; catch the sheep; take hold of its left fore leg with your left hand and nght hind leg with right hand; let your knees rest against the side of the vat so you can steady the sheep over it, bold the right hand a little the highest, let go the left hand first, so that the sheep's head will go clear under the liquid and the sheep will turn over and walk out of the vat on to tne piatrorm to anp. mere need be no fears about the liquid hurt ing the sheep's eyes or ears. If you should see the sheep biting themselves after ten or twelve days repeat the dose and the cure is complete. In this way three men can dip from 800 to 1000 sheep in one day. If you have to dip in cold weather keep the sheep warmly housed two or three days. By that time the wool next to the sheep will be dry. Do not use anything but tobacco. now to Make a O0od Wife.

TIIE IMPENDING FATE. An Interesting Chapter From tho liife of a Prominent Bostonian. (Itotton Globe.) The leaders of this paper were more or less amazed at a most remarkable statement from one of our leading clt izens which appeared iu yesterday's is sue. S3 unusual were the circum stances connected with it, and so much comment did it occasion on the street and in social circles, that a representa tive of this paper was commissioned to investigate its details and verify its facts. The article referred to was a statement made by Mr. B. F. Larrabe of the New York and Boston Dispatch Express Company, whose office is on Arch street. Mr. Larrabee was found by the newspaper man in his private office, and on being questioned, said; "Well, sir, logically I have been dead. but really I am as you can see me. A little over a year ago I was taken sick. My trouble was not severe at first and I thought it was the result of a slight cold. Somehow I felt unaccountably tired at times, although I took an abundance of sleep. Then, again, I had dull and strange pains in various parts of my body. My appetite was good one day and I had none whatever the next, and mv head pained me more or less mucn oi tne time, a wmwi afterward I noticed much that was pe culiar about the fluids I was passing, and that a sediment, scum and a strange accumulation appealed in it. Still did not realize that these things meant anything serious, and I allowed the ill ness to run along until on the zsth day of October I fell prostrate while walk ing along Tremont street. I was car ried home and did not co out of the house until the middle of December. then went down town and attempted to attend to my business until the loth of last January, when I was taken with a very severe relapse. My symptoms were terrible. I was fearfully bloated; I suffered severe pains in all parts of my body, and it was almost impossible to get my breath. For six days I never laid down and never slept. I was con stantly attended by my regular physi clan. Doctor Johnson, and Dr. Bow ditch also came to see me nearly every day. There was no doubt that I was suffering from Bright s disease of the kidneys In Its worst form and last stages, accompanied by other troubles in my liver and heart. Iu spite, how ever, of the skill of the physicians, I kept growing worse, and finally they tapped my side in the vicinity of the heart, taking away forty-six ounces of water. This relieved me for the time, but I soon became as bad as before. Then the doctor gave me up entirely, declared I could not live more than 24 hours, and my daughter, who was re siding in Paris, was telegraphed : for, Still I lingered along for several weeks, far more dead than alive, but never giving up hope. One night it was the 20th of April, I very well remember my attendant, who was reading the paper to me, began an article which de scribed my disease and sufferings exact ly. It told how some severe cases of Bright's disease had been cured, and so clearly and sensibly did it state the case that 1 determined to try the means of cure which it described. So I sent my man to the drug store, procured a bot tle of tlua medicine, unknown to my physicians and friends, and took the first dose at ten o'clock. At that time I was suffering intensely. I could not sleep ; I had the short breaths, and could scarcely get any air into my lungs. I was terribly bloated from head to foot, and the motion of my heart was irregular and painful. The next morning I was able to breathe freely ; the pain began to leave me and the bloating decreased. I continued to take the medicine, and to-day, sir, I am as well as I ever was in my life, and wholly owing to the wonderful, almost miraculous power of Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure. I do not know what this medicine is made of, or any thing else about it, but I know it saved my life when I was given up by the doc tors and had really been dead for weeks that it has kept me in perfect health ever since, and has cured many of my friends to whom I have recommended it. There are a number of.very remark able cases in Lynn and Salem,as 'veil as in this city, that it has cured. My re covery is so remarkable that it has ex cited much attention, and physicians, as well as others, have investigated it thoroughly. I am glad that they have, for I feel that the results of such a wonderful cure should be known to the thousanes in all parts of the land who are suffering from troubles of the kidneys, liver or heart, in some of their many dangerous forms. The representative of the press thank ed Mr. Larrabee for his very frank and clear statement, and was about to leave the office when a gentleman stepped up to him and inquired if he were seeking information about Mr. Larrabee s sick ness and recovery. The scribe replied that he was, whereupon the gentleman said: "And so am I, and I have come all the way from Chicago lor that very purpose. Kidney troubles seem to be alarmingly increasing all over the conn try, and I have a very near relative who is afflicted much as Mr. Larrabee was, 1 have been to see the physicians of whom Mr. Larrabee speaks, and I tell you, sir, it is simply wonderf uL "What did they say?" asked the man of news. "Say I why, stir, they fully confirm everything Mr. Larrabee has stated. I went to see Dr. D. A. Johnson, at 20 Worcester street. He was absent when I called, and so I stepped into the Common-wealth hotel, where Mr. Larrabee was living at the time of his sickness. Messrs. Brugh & Carter are the pro prietors, and I asked them about Mr. Larrabee's case. Mr. Brugh pointed to the electric annunciator and safd, why for weeks and weeks every time that bell rang I said: That means the death of Mr. Larrabee. No one around the hotel ever dreamed that be would recover and when the doctors would come down from his room they would shake their heads and nay there was no hope. The arrangements for the funeral were made and his recovery was simply a miracle. I then called on Dr. Johnson who said that Mr. Larrabee s case was a very remarkable one. He was his family physician aud expected his death every hour for a number of weeks and never called to see him during that time, but he was prepared for it The doctor said the recovery was due to Warner's Safe Kidney and Liver Cure, and if he had friends, male or female, troubled with Albumen or any kidney troubles he should certainly advise them to use this remedy. Dr. Johnson said kidney difficulties are more com mon than most peoplo think and that many symptoms which are supposed to be other diseases arise from the kidneys. He said that ladies after gestation are specially subject to albuminous troubles which require prompt attention. Well, I then came down and called on Dr. II. Ingersoll Bowditch onBoyls- ton street. The old doc lor was in clined to be reticent but fully confirm ed all I bad previously learned. He had attended Mr. Larrabee, and sup posed him beyond all hope and he was afterwards restored, as he said, by War ner s S ue Kidney and Liver Cure. I next went to see Dr. Melville E. Webb, at the Hotel Cluny, for you see wasdetermlned to be thorough in the matter. I found Dr. Webb a most clear-headed and well-informed gentle man and he said: "I know of Mr. Larrabee's case from having thoroughly investigated it as a medical director of a Life Insurance company, and it is one of the most re markable cases I have ever met. Mr, Larrabee had all the manifestations of a complication of diseases, and in their worst forms. lie had albumen and casts in the urine, and a terribly dis eased liver and spleen. Indeed, he was so bad that he threw himself upon the floor, and with his head upon a has sock, struggled for breath. It was on the night when he was so bad and when all his medical advisers had long given him up that he began using Warner s bate Kidney and Liver Cure. The next morning at 10 o'clock he was able to breathe freely, and has been ever since. I subjected him to the most thorough examination possible, after his recovery, and I can't find out .bout him.' His kidneys, liver, lungs and heart are perfectly well and sound I can only add that, from what I have seen,I would unhesitatingly recommend this remedy. The conclusions from the statements above made which come to the news paper man as well as the general pub lic, must be two-fold. First that modern miracle of healing has been performed in our midst, and that, too, by the simplest means and one which is within the reach of every one. It should be remembered that Bright! disease is not usually a sudden com pla'nt Its beginnings are slight an its growth slow. The symptoms by which it may be detected are different with different persons, no two people usually having the same. This fact was manifest in the case of Mr. Lar rabee, and he had no idea of the terri ble complaint which had attacked him until it became fixed upon him. Sec ondly, testimonials of such high charac ter and so out-spoken in tone, conclu slvely prove the value of the remedy and its superior nature to the proprie tary articles with which the public have been flooded. "The greater includes the less," and the remedy which has been proven so valuable and has saved a life after it was brought down to death's door, must unquestionably be certain In all minor troubles which are so disastrous unless taken in time. Character. We pass for what we are. Charac ter teaches above cur wills. Men im agine that they communicate thei virtue or vice only by overt actions and do not see that virtue or v?ce emits a breath every moment. Fear never but you shall be consistent in whatever variety of actions,so they be each honest and natural in their hour For if one will, the actions will harmonious, however unlike they seem. Tbeae varieties are lost eight of when 6een at a little distance, at little height of thought. One tendency unites them all. The voyage of the best ehip is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks. This is only microscopic criti cism. See the line lrom a sufficient distance, and it straightens, itself to the average tendency. Your genuine action will explain itself, and will ex plain your other genuine actions your conformity explains nothing Act singly aud what you have already done singly will lustily you now.

Two faces at a window, aud a black, black sky above. One was a face of delicate fairness; the other was round and ruddy with health, plump as a fall moon. Mabel Lee owned the first, and her brother Eddie owned the second. Mabel was ten, and Eddie eleven. No star-hole in the sky to-night, Mabel. Black, black everywhere." "Yes, I see one, Eddie." "Where?" "Over that chimney." Yes, just above tbo top of a neigh bor's chimney that the night was fast swallowing up, Eddie taw a star. - It looked like a little spark that had flown out of the neighbor s chimney. "Ah, Mabel, you Uud a star-hole iu every sky," said Eddie. "If none were there. I believe you would prick "one with the point of a pin." Mabel laughed, and turned away from the window, leaning on her stout little compauion's arm. As ehe turned, one could then have seen the little girl was pmrally lane. But Eddie sup ported her, tenderly holding her up. It was a touching sight to see them going to jcnool together, tue weaker leaning on the stronger, and the stronger gently bearing the weaker up. Mauel was indeed lamous for findin star-holes In the sky. As she went away from the window, she said to herself: "If I were not lame, Eddie might not be so good and take such care of me." The next night after her discovery of the star. near the chimney, Bhe was going home with Eddie. She was not ieeling very happy, for a little fellow. Timmy Thomas, had made fun of her walking. Mabel kept it all to herself, and did not tell Eddie. She was now so sorry that she was lame, and there were big tears in her blue eyes, but she did not let Eddie see them. Suddenly the tears were startled away, for Mabel and Eddie heard a loud scream. "Oh, help me do! do! Oh, help me aor "Somebody is in the water fallen from the wharf, cried Eddie. "Come this way, Mabel." As he spoke he led Mabel through a big gate that was open into a large wood-yard. This yard opened down to a wharf, and in the water clinging to a pier was Timmy Thomas. After leav ing Mabel and Eddie, he had thought it would be good fun to run from one wharf to the other, up to the wood yard wharf, but he had missed his foot ing, slipped and fallen down down in the water. What a pitiful, beseeching face he turned up to them! Quick, quick!" he cried. "Oh, get some one to help me. quick I "Hold on there, Timmy! Grip fast and grip firm," called Eddie. "I will soon have somebody here." Off ran Eddie, saying to Mabel: "Now you stay here till I come back;" and because Mabel was lame, she was obliged to stay behind. How she wished she was strong! Wouldn t she run away for help! "But there, I can keep company, and that will do some good," she thought, looking down at the unfortunate boy in the water. "Poor Timmy!' "Mabel," he cried piteously, won't Eddie bring somebody soon? This pier is slippery, and I can't cling good and 1 am afraid I can t hold on long. What could Mabel do? She turned about, and looked through an open door into a shed on the wharf, Was that a rope she saw on the ground ? bhe limped into the shed, and there, indeed, was a rope at one side. And it was knotted! "Perhaps Timmy could cling to this,' she thought. She took it back to the edge of the wharf, wound one end of it two or three times around the pier to keep It from slipping, and then threw the knot ted end into the water. How Timmy did cling to that knotted end! "I can hold on to this," he said. "Can your asked Mabel, l am glad." There she was above holding on to her end, and below was Timmy clinging to the rope. Eddie came back very soon, followed by a man quite strong to rescue Tim my. " Ho, ho!" he said. " What have we down here ? A fish on the end of this line? Can you hold tight if I pull you up?" "I think I can," said Timmy. "The knot helps." "Well, hold on! Up, up she comes there!" And Timmy was landed on the wharf as neatly as any fish ever pulled out of the dock. "Look out next time, sonny!" said Mr. Gray. "If it had not been for this little girl, you might have been down where the nshes are, and for good, too. Then Timmy turned to Mabel "Oh, Mabel," he said, "I am sorry I made fun of you. But Mabel said that was all settled. and she walked away, leaning on Eddie, and saying to herself. "There, if I had been able to run like other folks, I shouldn't have staid with Timmy and couldu't have helped him.' So she found another star-hole in the black sky. Mink, Amos Long caught a young crow, took him home and tamed him. But he could not teach him not to be mischievous and tricky. When the crow was full grown the cat had some kittens. Mink, as the bird was called.would take the tall of one of the kitties in his bill and drag her around the room. Neither the kitty nor its mother liked this, and they cried with all their might. Mink used to steal thimbles, spools of thread, gloves and other things, and hide them in out-of-the-way places. If he saw. a handkerchief sticking out of any one's pocket, he would snap at it and drag it out. One time Mr. Long felt a tapping at his back, and found that Mink was filling his coat-pocket with red berries. When the men are milking Mink will bop along and peck the cows' noses. Mink will not let any one take him up or pet him; but if any person holds out a stick, no matter now short it is, he will perch upon it. On this stick he will let himself be carried about the house.
