Will be read with interest not aluu« by young who were born on West ern prairies, but by very old boys, who were brought up among the hills of New Kuk'UumI There are so mnn£ biifcht spots In the life of a farm boy, that I some times think I should like to lire the life over again I should almost be willing to he a girl if it were not for the elioret. There is a great comfort to a boy in the amount of work he can get rid of doing. It ia some times astonishing how slow he can go on an errand, he who leads the school in a race. The world is new and interesting to him, and there ia too much to take his attention offi when he is sent to do anything. Per haps he corldn't explain, himself, why, when he is sent to the neigh-. bor after yeast, he stops to stone the frogn he Is not exactly cruel, hut he wants to see if he can hit 'em. No| other living thing can go so slow as a boy sent on nti errand. His legs eeeua to be dead, unless he happeus to espy a wood-chuck in an adjoining lot, when he gives chase to it like a deer and it isacutious fact about boys, that two will be great deal slower in doing anything than one, and lhat the more you have to help on a piece of work the less is accm pliahnd. Boys have a power in help ing each other do nothing and they •re so innocent atmut It mid nneon ciiM.

It U-CAIH very iiirorl»nt ton.' imes i me to bee hut ateep!. and in the mid«t of my investigations t»:«.? tin horn would blow a reat bls^t from the farm hou*e, which w uld send a cold chill dow my back in the ho'test days.— I knew what it meant. Tt had a frightful impatient quiver in it, not at all like the sweet note that called us to dinner from the hay field. It said ''Why on earth doesn't that boy come home? It is a most dark and the cows ain't milked!" And that was the time cows had to start into a brisk pace and make up for lost time. I wonder if any boy ever drove the cows home late, who did not say that the cows were at the further end of the pasture, and that "Old Brindle was hidden in the woods, and he couldn't And her for ever so long." The brindle cowls the boy's scapegoat many a time. No other boy knows how to appre ciate a holiday as the farm boy does, and his best ones are of a peculiar sort. Going a fMiing is of course one sort. The excitement of rigging up the tackle, digging the bait, and the iinticlpation of great luck theou are pure pleasures, enjoyed because they are rare. Boys who can go a fishing any time care but little for it. Tramping nil day through brush and and brier, fighting tlies and mosqui toes, and branches that tangle the line, and snags that break the hook, and returning home late and hungry with wet feet and astringof speckled trout on a willow twig, and have the family crowd out at the kitchen door to look at 'cm and say, Pretty well done for you, bub did you catch the big one yourself?" This is also pure happiness, the like of which the boy will never have again, not if lie come to be a select man and deacon, and to keep store. But the holidays I recall witti de light were the two days in spring and fall, when we went to the dis tant pasture land, in a neighboring town, may be, to drive thither the young cattle and colts, and to bring "them back agsin. It was a wild and rocky uplaud where our pasture was, many miles from home, the road to it running by a brawling river, and up a dashing brook side among great hills. What a day's adventure it whh! It was like a journey to Europe. The night before I could scarcely sleep for thinking of it, and there was no trouble about getting me up at sunrise that morning. The breakfast was eaten, the luncheon was packed in a large basket. I wish that journey would never end but at last by noon, we reach the pasture, and turn in the herd and after making the tour of the lots t- make cure there are no breaks in the fences, we take our luncheon from the wagon and e»t it under the trees by the spring. This is the way to live thiH is like the Hwiss Family Robinson, and ail the rest of my de lightful acquaintances In romauce.— Baked beans, rye and Indiau bread, I moist, remember] doughnuts and! cheese, pie and root beer. What I richness! You may live to dine at Deimonico's or at Phillipp's in the Rue Montorguell, in Paris, where the good old Thackeray used to eat as good a dinner as anybody, but you will get there neither doughnuts nor pie, root nor beer, anything so good a» that luncheon at noon in the old pasture, high among the Massachu setts hills! Nor will you ever, if you live to be the oldest boy in the world, have any holiday equal to the one I have described. But I have always regretted that I did not take a fish line, just to "throw in" tlie brook we parsed. I know there trout there. .rape infe Seveial inquiries having been made through the'columns of the Country Gentleman as to the kind of mlllB ana presses to be used for making domes tic wiue, I will give a sample process that will infure a delicious wins: "First icatch your turbotPick your grapes when perfectly ripe.— Uave a tub or barrel upon which you can fasten a large clothes 'wringer put a sufficent quantities of grapes into a strong bag of the proper text* ure to act as a strainer, and pass it through fyour ivine mill juice is expressed. }When this ia done you have accomplished three important things in one operation mashed the grapes, expressed thi juice, and strained it. The nextlthing Is to test the qnali ty and strength of the juice. It Is well kuown that many kiuds of grapes differ materially in the quan tity of saccharine matter tbey oon« tain. Some kiuds,.grown in a local* ity with a tine (southern exposure, will yield an excellent wine without any additional amount of sugar, but to avoid a failure the juice should be tested and there is no need of bor rowing or buying an instrument far tU&iUirpo&e. Cio to the egg basket and get a fresh egg, and if the juice con tains enough sugar to float the egg so tbut a portion of it the size of a live' cent piece shows .above the surface, it is all right if uot, add sugar untfl it will.

This is the case lO winter when it is accumulated from day to day, thequautity being small. It rarely occur# in summer when there is ahundame of milk, and churning reported to every day. If it doe* occur, it may be in the feed, an sut-^ested by correspondents.— There are many bitter weeds, es|e ctaMy in hay, and more particularly when ripe, that doubtless impart thw principle along with others, odors, J*taiills, etc. (Mean hay, with timely y£ liuruing and a proper temperature ior the uiilk, will probably remedy 11 oa &IHM THOMPSON & DEALKBAIK Hardware, Tinware & Stoves, Farming Tools, IRON, NAILS, &C., OPPOSITE THI CARTKR HOUSK, OEDAR FALLS, IOWA Wonld rpFpetffhUy arte of the pmrhaate* public an examination ef their GOODS AND PRICES.
