o 31 a Id and the Leaf.
A dead leaf drifted along the snow
A poor brown leaf with edges torn;
Sow here, now tbere, blown hitch and low.
An outcast and a thing of acorn.
Alast alaa!
So life drifts on to hearts forlorn.
Once in a bower, fresh and bright,
kissed by the sun rays and tha dew,
A maid to flee the hot inn's might,
Frone on the ground her fair iimbs threw.
To sleep, to sleep.
And dream of some one that she knew.
- She slept and dreamed a horrid thing
That he she loved from her would stray;
And starting up, deep sorrowing,
Keaolred to seek him out that day.
Alas I alas)
Twas all too true he'd fled away.
Her last love token Justs a leaf
Of sycamore love's emblem bright.
She threw away, then praYed that grief
Might bear ber 08 from mortal sight.
Alast alas!
While the dead leaf drifted through the

Sarah's xoxma MEN.
. SaraJi Blake was neither very young
nor very Deantuul, but her father own
d the best and the biggest farm in
Horley, and being an only child she was
accounted an eligible match in thrifty
circles.
Dick Sanders and Ted Brant were ri
val suitors for her hand. She had but
to say titer wrjTTh-wMebr of -them she
: would have; but it was jnst that that
- made her hesitate there was bo little
choice between them. ,
O 1 1 1 . '
oocn oejays are always dangerous.
While Sarah wavered, uncertain which
- to hold and which to let go, both at
once her captives slipped the leash.
They might have pleaded that they
had done no worse than others. For,
when Jenny Allen's father came with
' his beautiful daughter to dwell in Hor
ley, there was a general nocking of the
wains about the shrine of the new idol,
and Ted and Dick only followed the
rest.
But Sarah Blake was not the woman
' to view a lover's defection lightly. Nor
did it weaken her resentment to divide
it between two. She had quite enough
for both ; and it being uncertain which
of them she would have chosen, in
meting ont her anger she gave each the
disadvantage of the doubt.
Jenny Alien was civil and polite to
au without showing a preference to anv.
Dick Sanders and Ted Brant were fore
most among her admirers. Indeed, the
outers stood a good deal in awe of them
and hung back, for they were a pair of
cnurnsn, nrawny chaps, little inclined
to brook competition and whose ill-will
few cared to court. Between themselves
the question of which should yield was
fast reaching a point where its settle
ment by "wager of battle" seemed inev
liable, when things took a torn which
put a new face on affairs.
Will Harvey came from town to spend
his summer vacation at an a tint's in
Horley. One day, while sauntering,
rod ia hand, along the charming little
nver max wound through the valley,
-Will unexpectedly came on something
urovo nsmng completely out of his
head. On a mossy bank, shaded by
uTvmauging Dougns, sat a young girl
oeep in the pages of a book. Her pro
mo, wsncn was towards him, presented
a contour so perfect that it would have
defied the sculptor's sat to reproduce it
The shower of glossy ringlets that fell
upon the matchless neck and shoulders
stole a- new tinge from every shifting
glimmer 01 ugnt silted through the un

and flush and her eyes flash and melt by
tans with the varied emotions called up
vj win sne reaa.
Will Harvey would have gladly re
mained a silent spectator of a sight so
lovely, but he felt he had no right to4o
so. Advancing ia a manoer to attract
ue girl's attention, he raised his hat
and asked some commonplace questioas
about certain localities in the neighbor
hood." These answered, in a voice so
rich and musical that every tone made
his heart flutter, he found more things
to ask about, till by degrees a conversa
tion sprung up which lasted till the
young lady, suddenly remembering how
wag 11 saa continued, with a blush
caught np her gypsy hat, bade him a
pleasant good-day, and tripped away
jjgnuy.
Thus began the acquaintance of Will
aartvj auu jenny Allen. Bat It was
not likely to end there. For if Will
Harvey's first stolen glimpse of Jenny
settled her title, in his eyes, to be called
the loveliest creature in the world, it is
quite as certain that her first impres
sions of the handsome stranger were
hardly lest exalted.
A formal introduction followed, and
in i little time Will and Jenny were so
constantly together that the rural gos
sips bfgan to talk of their engagement
as a thing quite settled.
This was wormwood te Dick Sanders
and Ted Brant. They began to look
askance at Will Harvey, and were onlj
restrained from picking an open quarrel
with him by reflecting that he was a
trim-built, wiry fellow who mightn't be
so easily bandied, to say nothing of tht
plucky look there was in his keen, dark
eyes.
One day Pick, at a turn of the lane
down which he was strolling, sulking as
usual over his bad fortune, was met by
Sarah Blake. lie felt awkward a?.d
confused. Sarah had a valorous tongue
and he bad no ground to expect mercy.
To his surprise, however, she met his
clumsy greeting graciously, for the time
disposed, apparently, to forget past
grievances.
" I've news," she said ; " news you'd
give a deal to know."
"What is it, Sally P" he asked coax
Ingly. "Oh, nevermind."
" Come, Sally, for old acquaintance
sake?"
Was it a smile or a gcoWlsho gave
him then? Dick wasn't sure and was
beginning to tremble again when Sarah
resumed her gracious mien.
" Well, seeing it's you' she said, " I
don t mind telling. Jenny Allen is go
ing to elope with Y ill Harvey to-night.
lie's to be at her father's back gate at
12 o'clock, his face covered with a black
mask. When he gives a low whistle,
thrice repeated, she's to come out and
then they'll flit together. Here are all
the details in a note in her own hand,
which I picked up after seeing it drop
from Will Harvey's pocket as he canter
ed down the road, half an hour since.
Read for yourself."
Dick ground his teeth as his eye ran
over the lines which confirmed every
word of Sarah's statement.
" What are you going to doP" asked
Sarah with a provoking coolness that
roused Dick's fury.
"DoP" he growled. "I'd pommel
the villain if I could only lay hands on
him!" - - - -
I can put you on a better plan."
"What is it P"
" Disguise yourself as the letter in
dicates. Be on the spot a little before
the time. . Give the concerted signal
ana when the lady eomes flit with her
yourself. ' Ten- to one, when she sees
the trap she's in, she'll marry you to
avoid exposure. At any rate you'll earn
her father's gratitude by thwarting
narveys plot."
But suppose Harvey, too. comes be
fore the time and we meet at the gate?
" Knock him down, beat him sense
less, give the signal and get away with
the prize before he comes to."
I'll ao it!" cnea Dick, his eyes
flashing fiercely, "Good-by, Sally t. I'll
have news for yon when we next
meet I "
It lacked a quarter to 12 when Dick
Sanders, his face masked, stole up to
Mr. Allen's garden gate. . At the same
moment a man similarly disguised ap
preached by another path. For an in
stent the pair confronted each other,
They both spang forward, striking out
with might and main. Blows rained
thick and fast. The combatants were
well matched. After-a mutual ham
mering for 10 minutes, without advan
tage to either side, they grappled and
went down, together. Then they scuf
fled and bit and scratched till they rol
led apart from sheer exhaustion and lay
glaring at each other in helpless rage
Both their masks were torn to tatters,
and as the bright moonlight beamed
down upon their battered faces each ut
tered an exclamation of surprise.
" Ted Brant!" panted the one.
"Dick Sanders!" gasped the other.
"I thought it was that scoundrel Har
vey!" replied Dick.
"So did I!" rejoined Ted.
A brief comparison of notes disclos
ed that Sarah Blake, after her interview
with Dick, had had a similar one with
Ted ; the result being, as above narrat
ed, a desperate encounter, in which
each thought he was pommeling away
at Will Harvey. . The letter, we need
hardly say, was amiable Sarah's own
production.
Before Dick and Ted were present
able again, Will Harvy and Jenny Al
len were happily married, with the full
consent 01 ice latter s iatner, wno, in
deed, had never opposed the match.
- Sarah Blake is still a maiden.
Romance In Real Life.
That was a sad, sad affair that hap.
pened recently.' A young man, upon
learning that a young lady whom he
adored but whose love for him was
not very warm was about to sail for
Europe, engaged passage on the sai
vessel, so that he might bask in her
smiles during the voyage. But hs didn't
bask much. The second day out he
was seized with an internal commotion,
a wrenching and wretched feeling
that threatened to turn him inside out,
and until he reached Liverpool he was
the most miserable man in the world.
ine young lady made her appearance
regularly at meals, with an appetite as
savage as a Sitting Bull Indian,' and
flirting like all creation with a youn
Englishman who wore sideboard col
lars and a Scotch cap. When the
wretched young man learned this he
had a serious relapse, and he wished
he was home. Some old scientist says
the ocean will be entirely dried up in
a few million years hence, and the
blighted young man has concluded to
patiently waif until that period arrives,
and then return Dome overland.
Female Veracity.
The English Bench has decided in
formally that a woman can tell a better
lie than a man. At the Devon Assizes
in Exeter, during the trial of a perjury
case, the counsel for the defense made
use of the remark that a woman would
say any thing. Baron Huddlestonj in
addressing the jury, observed that he
could not go as far as the counsel, but
it wss a well known fact that a woman
told a lie better than a man did. It was
a remarkable circumstance that when a
woman .was determined to say that
which was untrue, she did it a great deal
better than a man. Whether it was that
a man was more conscious of his integ
rity, was a metaphysical question he
could not answer; but it was certain that
a woman could tell a story much mere
logically and perseveringly than a man
could. He was glad that it was a ques
tion for the jury to say whether the girl
should be believed, for he himself ad
mitted his incapacity to gauge the ve
racity of a woman when she appeared
in the box.

. There is no other modern improve
ment in the prsutioeo azHcullure that
has proved. 'iVioye convenient and profit
able than the creamery. It has rcliaved
the farmer's family of a heavy burden
of work and ca"ei hs lightened and
cheapened work by bringing associated
I effort and capital to bear upon it; it has
greatly improved the quaHty of th.
product by the possibility 01 engaging
and paying the test skill ; it !-.as totally
revolutionized the practice of dairy
ing, by introducing winter butter
making, and it has supplied con
sumers with a product of the best quali
ty, which comes to them fresh and finely
flavored. In addition, it ha afforded!
home market tor the farmer's milk and
has vastly extended the production and
consumption of batter. As an example
of what has been effected by the intro
duction of the creamery sretetH may M
mentioned, ill contrast, the former and
the present position of Western dairy
ing. Not more . than two years ago
" Western" was a brand of reproach on
a butter-firkin, and commission agents
had a low scale of price established and
qcoted- specially for Western butter.
Then eVery Western farmer made his
own butter : for onfe eood dairy there
were ninety and nine Inferior or bad
ones; but the good butter sold for no
more at the village stores than the bad,
and all was lumped together; all shades
and .flavors, were mingled, worked
over, and paekel by. the unskillful
storekeeper for the Eastern market,

These have
been some of--the benefits ' which
iVASCrued.njj,h vljiishnient of
creameries, not only in the- West, but
everywhere JiCHhats. not by any" means
unworthy of regard, might be referred
to in the shape of relief to the farmers'
families from much drudgery and slop-1
- k jg .j the"da.rV and
jjarns,. and the con equent aVlity of the
,,0 to devote more time to house-
hold - . RT1(1 lt , th. J
and their children. In this mor.
i point ol ykw" the benefit has been
probabl evdn gtea'er than the material
advantages derived from the economy J
of a division of labor, and the effective-
ness of co-operative effort. Creamer
ies have been managed as joint stock
or co-operative affairs, owned by the
"patrons" as those who furnish the
milk have been called ; and also as dis
tinct properties, owned and managed
ny others, wno purchase tne milk or
cream, or make the butter for a certain
sum per pound. The latter, as might
be expected, have turned out to be the
more satisfactory, from the difficulty of
reconciling so many diverse interests.
A creamery may be. profitably estab
lished where there are ' 150 or more
cows! The namber named .is the least
that can be worked with profit, except
under very favorable circumstances.
The cost of a well furnished establish-
! meet is about $3,000, and but little more
is required "to work np the milk of
6 00 -or 1,000 cows. Fifteen hundred
dollars may build and equip a very fair
creamery for 150 cows. It is to be re
membered that the larger the number
of cows the less the cost of equipment
in proportion.' The building should be
long and narrow--about 75 feaby23 is
a- convenient shape and divided into
two rooms, one for setting the milk in
vats, and the other for churning and
.working. the butter. Less room is. re
quired where there is a cool spring of
water available, as then deep cans may
be used whiuh require no more than ljfl
mehes each .way Jor Jo, quarts 01 milk; I
vHh halkw pans or vats, four times as
much space would be required. , Where
there is no spring, but plenty of ice is
available, the cold closet used in the
Hardin system is the most eeonomieal
of anr.m.i- Kltluar an ahnnrimnt olA
spring or an abundance of ice is neces
sary for success in a creamery.' Oh the
whole, the latter Is the more convenient
andeffeetrreVanxl is always te be relied
upon". Plans for creameries can be pro
cured from experts, in which every -de-
tail of construction and management is
given; and, it would be cheaper to pay
a good round sum for a good plan than
to .find afterward that a mistake has
been made in some ' vital point which
would be ten times more costly fa rem
edy. "'An association of farmers may
be made to own a creamery, imd.to
engage a ' competent ; dairyman to
work it, , the association purchasing
the milk-or the cream, or charging "a
snm,.usually S cents' a pound 04- there
abouts, far making the butter. Tire
skim-milk is worked np into cheese, 30
pounds "of milk generally- making 1
pound of butter and 1 pound of cheese.
The members of the association-indi
vidually would tell their milk to the
company as if they were uninterested
parties. . This perhaps will be the most
convenient and satisfactory manner of
conducting the creamery, '' excepting
where it is owned and the business man
aged by one private individual. The
success of the business so far has had
the effect of greatly extending it, and
.there are now thousands of creameries,
small and large, where six years ago
one was a rarity. Its effect has been to
greatly enhance the value of dairy pro
ducts, by -.exalting their quality, and it
has brought millions of dollars into the
pockets of farmers, with a correspond
ing advantage to the consumers, who
have been equal gainers. It has done
this by bringing to bear upon the man
ufacture o a stable product ali the ad
vantages to be derived from the employ
ment ef labor-saVlhg machinery and
steam-power, the division of labor, and
the concentration of effort and skill into
each separate department. And it i a
matter of history as well as of scientific
certainty that these, havej and will al
ways, succeed better than individual
and crude efforts: JVcib York Tithes.

The Use or Soda. There has been

the Use of much soda or saleratus in

of great injury to health when used as
constantly as it is by many cooks,
Physicians very generally agree that its
frequent use debilitates and relaxes mus

1 people regarded as harmless, ior ar-
I seme, 'strychnine,' opium," chloroform,
V mercury and perhaps a few other prom-

paper of a child suddenly attacked by
severe vomiting, which the usual reme-
ies.failing to check, eads in exhaustion
and death:. aHd the cause is laid anv
f where but at the confectioner's counter
where the boy bought his candies and
cakes flavored with bitter almond. "The
bitter almond is a powerful poison."
A single drop of the essential
oil on a cat's tongue made a dead
pussy of a living one in
just five minutes, by experiment. Some
delicate organizations, especially among
children, can bear but little of this es
sence, the smallest quantity producing
an eruption like nettle rath, if nothing
worse, and yet macaroons are eaten and
given to children to eat with impunity,
while confectioners are often nowadays
using, not the bitter almonds, but the
essential oil, for their flavoring. There
is a " family connection" between the
bitter and sweet almond, how close is
not easily defined, bnt sufficient to show
that on some persons the sweet nut on
our tables, if eaten, produces an effect
similar to that caused by the bitter
almond. " Fish poison is one of the
most singular in all the range'of toxicol
ogy." Certain kinds of fish in hot
countriei are looked upon as always
poisonous. Other kinds are only pois
onous to peculiar constitutions, at cer
tain times, and perhaps depending
somewhat on the climate.. The richer
sort of vertebrate fish, though actually
eaten with perfect safety by mankind in
geneial, --ere nevertheless poisonous,
either at all times or only occasionally,
to peculiar individuals. This fact is self
evident to many of us who have experi
enced ' nausea after eating whitefish.

the hint and declines the poison in -the
future. a Lead poisoning we are more
familiar with,' as some members of our
households, are more susceptible than
othea tjiejnjurious effect of water
ron through . .lead pipes. But "'the
poison in this case, acting slowly and
srttly.is usually classed under the broad,
good-BsstuxediyjBmbraouig term, "ma

or in any way with lead and absorb its
fine dust into their systems, except by
the greatest care, sooner or later have
what in general phraseology is called
printers ox painters' -palsy. -The habit
of children to bite and wet their lead
pencils is often followed by serious re

to a close school-room and hard study
than to the lead-pencils, slate-pencils

ons Is fonnd In the sirup which is a lead
ing feature of the American breakfast-
table. "The use of chloride of tin in
glucose sirups has been proved by
numerous analyses." Think of that,
oh, ye who indulge in "golden drip"
and "tnaple .sirup" on cold, wintry
mornings on your, hot cakes. Beware
of any sirup that leaves a metallic taste
in the mouth, lest by means of the sweet
liquid your stomach gets a tin lining and
you, wondering why on earth you have
developed dyspepsia, conclude that it
must be the hot cakes disagree with
you. And 11 tne said cakes are made of
the raising-easy stuff called baking-
powder, very likely the disagreement
can, in part, be laid te them, for analy
sis has also shown that baking-powder
contains a large proportion of desiccated

To Utilize Old Linen or Cotton
Boil cloths that are too much worn
for their legitimate use five minutes in
pint of milk and one ounce of powdered
ammonia: '' As soon as taken out, wring
in eold water. Bo oareful not to let
them remain a moment-fe the water,
Dry before a fire, not outdoors in the
wind: ' ' Keep cloths thus prepared to
polish .plate or silverware. ' First wash
and wipe the articles quite dry, then rub
briskly wilh these cloths. The com
bination of .milk and ammonia in which
they were boiled will produce a beauti
ful deep polish like new silver.' Dust
them off with a soft chamois or a dry,
soft towel before using. ;
. French Custard. Separate the
whites and yelks of 8 eggs, beat the
yelks up very light and add them to one
quart of milk, which you have sweeten
ed to, taste and flavored with vanilla
put it in a farina kettle, place over
slow fire, and stir it all the time . until
it becomes custard ; then pour it into a
pudding-dish , to cool; whip , up the
whites until they are perfectly stiff and
dry; have air ready a pan" of boiling
water," on the top of which place the
whites, cover them and place them
where the water will keep sujfflciently
hot to cause" a steam to pass through
and cook them. Put in a dish, suitable
for the table, a layer of the custard, and
grate a little nutmeg with a teaspoonful
of wine, and pour over it; then a layer
of the whites,and so on until it is all nsed
up, reserving a layer of white for the
covering, over which you grate nutmeg.
Repairing Tin-ware. Those who
live in the country often find it difficult
to have small articles of tin-ware re
paired when necessary, and are fre
quently put to great inconvenience
tnrougn long delays, cut a little ex
perience will soon teach them to be
quite expert in mending for themselves.
With a sharp knife scrape all about the
hole or leak until it becomes bright as
new tin. The solder will then readily
adhere. Sprinkle on a little powdered
rosin, heat the soldering-iron which no
family should be without bold ji on
tne rosin to me.t it. lm not have the
iron so hot that the rosin or solder will
adhere to the iron. If one has no sol
dering-iron, heat any smooth piece of
iron (the knob on the top of a shovel or
poker will answer), or hold a lighted
candle under the spot, after sprinkling
the rosin on top, and the work can be
accomplished. But, having once felt
the need of a soldering-iron, or learned
how easy it is to make such repairs, no
housekeeper will be long without one.
Silk Culture In the United States.
Silk culture, like some other indus
tries, has presented always this fact,
that it has been introduced only by slow
and painful efforts ; but once fairly es
tablished it has become a fixed industry,
and has not been abandoned. The pains
to bring it about is chiefly ia the train
ing of young pe ?ple to the several pro
ses. This must be effected from fam
ily to family, -er by the more rapid
htethad of j teaching'.- Silk schools are
not new. nor is the idea. The celebrat
ed Italian physician, Count Dandolo,
set it before the Italian and French peo
ple about a Hundred years ago. Previous
to his time a rude process of raising silk
worms was carried on by the peasantry
in their homes, and the silk fiber was
produced amidst the dust and dirt and
in the close air of their sleeping' apart
ments. . But when - he. established his
school near Milan he taught them how
to raise silk by rule, and how to reel by
method and with exactness, and thecrop
trebled under his tuition. In our coun
try we have no methods to correct, for
no considerable number of persons raise
silk. But we have the material in the
trees, and we have the intelligent minds
that can be trained. The trees are
scattered over the country; the minds
are concentrated in the cities. A cen
tripetal attraction has been exerted in
the towns and cities for all the new
ideas and new inventions, and especial
ly by the association for factory work,
which has drawn so many from
their country homes. . There is need of
a diffusive force. Tbere is need for an
industry that will remove the overplus
of the towns into the country districts.
As a means to accomplish this we wel -come
the idea of the managers of the
Permanent Exhibition, whose far-sight
ed policy looks beyond the mere show
of curiosities so handsomely displayed
at their main building, to the educating
of the people into an application of the
uses of all th:it is there displayed.
Amongst other industries they propose
to exhibit that of raising and reeling
silk, but not as a mere exhibit. It is
their intention to send out from the Ex
hibition trained young persons, who
shall carry their educated minds and in
structed fingers back to their Country
homes where mulberry trees abound,
and from their homes, as from many
centers, shall diffuse a knowledge "and
taste . for this business among their
neighbors and friends. Perhaps there
is no one thing so much needed at this
time as a hew industry. The old trades
are all overcrowded To set -at work
on unwillingly idle person is to start
an eddy of circulation for money which
will widen and widen until the whole
mass of idle capital shall once more go
out to gladden the face of the poor.
