lived in Livonia, provinre w liich once
bel..ngftl lo l'uland. You will find it
laid dow n on n recent map in the prov

Nevei ininil tell the story.
The man's name ia Shollo, and I'll re.

M liieud shook out the sahes from

One evening Shollo ' returning
limn maiket, whither be went over a
di.tance of twelve miles twice a week
wiih bia bore niiti a edge. The road
which led in the bouse Wita a long, wind
ing one, and on eilher side the mow lav
fiesli mid deep. The road ilaelf was, of
eoiiin', snow. covered, but tbe wind
sweeping down from the valley had car
ried much ol llic snow away, so that it
had (be iippearanci' of a path channeled
ihl'Mi'li a heavy drill.
Nixht w aa co ning on, and ShoMo
knew luil well that Iiih houiewald jour
ney no not vt holly a safe one. Although
imi' li liiiiiied he did not allow hiiiiaclt
10 sa ep, but rather ktpt a close watch
mi all sides. 1 1 in sole weapon of defense
in ea-e of danger was a hatchet, which
be iilwais caiiied vv ilh him whitherso
ever he cut.
The horse wat making good speed, and
the sledge w as fast leaving distance be
hind il, when Sholto, looking back, saw
t wo dark, hideous animals svviMy pur
suing him. And soon one of them al
most touched the sledge, and iis lot,
-learning Incut li 10-e up into Siholto's
face. Although lh effort to slay the
animal might have been successful he
cho-e not lo attempt it . Hit knew that
11 was Hie horse that was wauled, and
that p vt'iy I lii off depended on the latter's
courage ami swiftness. If he could only
keep ibe horse in Iln: track and prevent
il from bounding oil' into the snow-drifls
be vva-sure that he could ward off all
danger. So, in order lo preserve tbe
com age of his steed, Shollo leaned for
ward h tul caressed him with word and
I I was u terrible moment hi Shollo
kept his hand oft die horse and bis eyes
on ibe li t'ocious wolves who were men
acing his (light . The number of the lat
ter had increased, and one of them,
y. linger, linger ami longer-limbed than
the ol h' Is, managed to keep pace with
Ibe sledge, . Sholto raised his hatchet to
slnke, but ibe wolf, dodging the blow,
tmiied hmiIc, maintained lis footing, and

which, noticing' the reiuru of the horao
without itt inater, -wild it tcetitiug the
danger, bad gone forth on ft minion of

hit fuel, while the wolf and tbe dog
were contending furiously for the mau
Next Sholto it aoinetbiiig which lay
glilleriiig in the mow. lie hurried to
ward it and recovered the weapon w hich

strength wai quite ethatuled be lacked
With a itiirdy blow be diapatched one
wolf, whereupon a companion, mangled
and bleeding, ulyly betook hiiuaelf off.
The largest and trougeat was still grap
pling with Arno. It waa no easy task to
rid (he noble dog of bit antagonist. To
be sure, Sbolto continued to Jeal heavy
blows over the wolf's hack sod legs and
thus managed to dianble him by degrees,
lint the position of the dog who lay
directly undei hit antagonistprevented
siliolto from taking the aim that be would
have liked. At leuglh Arno was put to
terrible agony, and, stretching out his
legs and unloosing Ida hold, suffered bit
head to fall backward.
The moment wan ripe. The hatchet
was raiacd, and, with all possible force,
was buried deep in tbe wolfs skull.
Without a groiiii the animal rolled over
in the snow, This was the lat of the
contest. The thought that be was saved
fairly overcame (Sbolto, and be wat on
the point of lying down to rest when the
fate of his poor dog taahed into bis
The moon bad gone bthiud a cloud and
darkness enshrouded the scene. Sholto
groped about and found Aruo panting
and ganping for breath. Perhaps he had
received a mortal wound. But no, that
was impossible, for a dog to true and
noble could not die. He bent over him
and raised bit bead. He caressed him
tenderly and paused wbeu a soil band
rested on his shoulder, A familiar voice
sounded in hit ear.
Whose was it? Ab, bliolto could riot
mistake the voice of bis wife so easily,
for she it was who had braved tbe ter
rors of (lie night in search of him. You
know tbe rest. The candle guided them
homeward, and there in that lowly cot
tage siholto thanked God for hit narrow
escape and for having besiowed upon
him a wile so brave and loving and a
dog so noble and true.
A pretty good story, ilerr Gsbel, only
a little rommtic.
Ah, sir, it you do not believe it go and
ask Shollo, Even the dog Arno, whom
you just saw lagging behind hi master's
beela, will wsg bis tail in a rare fashion
when q ileal ioued about the affair. The
event took place five years ainee. Alter
a while Shollo wearied of living in a
Country exposed to so many dangers and
moved hiiuaelf and family down her.-.
We think, however, be will reiuru to
Livonia some day, for he doeMi'i quite
faii'-v our ways of living.

The lest lime I have ever found for
spreading manure on mow ing fields is
just ss soon as the crop is removed. The
manure then is beneficial in two ways
by shading the grass roots, and as a frr
tilixer, It should bo hushed down fine
and made to lie close to the surface, so
that the next crop which should immedi
ately spring tip, may rover it and keep
it moist and in condition to he cosily dis
solved by the dews and showers. Light
dressings applied at this season often
make all the difference between a good
crop of rowen and no crop ut all. If
top-dressing is practiced at all it shoald
be commenced while the grass is yet vig
o roil it, and before its place is taken by
wild and inferior kinds. Top-dress only
good gtsss; re-seed old fields that are
CTTTISO AND tfltlSU.
It hardly seems necessary at this late
day to urge cutting hay early, as it is
now pretty generally admitted thut il
should be cut us soon as it comes into full
blossom. Tbe main difficulty seems to be
in getting our bay cut as early a we
know it should be. Too many of us have
a little more hoeing to do, or wc can't
get really before next Monday, and when
Monday conies it brings a storm of sever
al days, and so our bay becomes over
ripe. The in jre we uinkt dairying a
specially, the more likely we shall bo to
begin our baying in season. My rule for
curing bay is not much more definite
than uiy rule for sowing grass seed. In
fair weather I dry kay all I think it needs:
drying, but when the weather is catching
or uncertain, 1 often prefer to euro It a
little imperfectly in the mow, lo leaving
it out to spoil in the field. Hay may
be perfectly cured in the mow when
boused in a much greener state than was
formerly supposed possible.
When my grass is ripe enough to cut I
hurry it along as fast as possible, keep
lug as much cut down in all weather as 1
can take care of; for when gtss is past
blossoming I contend that il may depre
ciate as fast standing, in fair weather, as
cut, in bad weather. It is sure to grow
poorer in either case by every day's de
lay, and I prefer to take the risk from
culling rather than from letting it stand.
So rapidly docs grass depreciate in qual
ity, after it is fully in bloom, that I would
cut it just before a three days' storm
rather than let it stand uncut. Good,
moist, natural grass land, not too wet,
when once well seeded with desirable
varieties of grass, should be kept up to it
high state of fertility and productiveness
by animal or biennial applications ol
some kind of fcrtllir."! s in the form ol
top-dressings. This course saves I he cost
of ploughing, the expense of seed, which
il no small item, and the risk of getting
another good sward.

On; day as hn re-entered hit house he
found installed in the ante-room an old
priest who had long been waiting iiis re

I lupin lieu.
I wish you to look at this, meekly ro
plied the priest, taking off an old woolen
cravat, which revealed upon the nape of
his neck a hideous tumor, iJtipuylmi
looked at it.

Thanks, doctor, simply replied the
priest, replacing hit cravat : 1 atn much
obliged to you for warning me as I can
prepare, myself, as well at my poor parish

at great things, looked upon this priest,
who received his death sentence unmoved,
with amazement, and added:
Coino to-morrow at eight o'clock to the
Hotel Ibeii, and ak for (tie.
The priest was prompt. The surgeon
procured fa- him a special room In the
