In iiis youth Sir Richard Philips edited and published a paper at Lei cester, England, called the Herald. One day an article appeared in it, headed "Hutch Mail," and added to it was an nnounccment that it iiad ar rived too late for translation, and had been set up and printed in the orig inal. This wondrous article drove half England crazy, and for years the iiest Hutch scholars squabbled and poured over it without living aide to arrive at any idea of what it meant. This famous "Hutch Mail" was in reality only a "pi." "Pi," it may be explained, is a jumble of odd letters gathered up and set on end so as to save their laces from being scraped, to Is- dis tributed at the le'sure of the printer in their proper places. Koine letters are upside down, often ten or twelve consonants or as many vowels come together, and the w hole is peppered with punctuations, dashes mid so on •nitil it might pass for poetry by a lunatic < lioetaw. The story SII Richard tells of the particular "pi" lie had a whole band in is this : < IIIC evening, before one of our pulv. licatioiis, my men and a bov overturn ed two or three columns of the pnj>er in type. We had to get ready soun way for the coaches, which, nt 1 o'clock in the morning, required I'M or .*.OO pupeis. After every exertion we were short nearly a column, but there stood on the galleys a tempting column of "pi." It suddenly struck me that Ibis might lie called Hutch, i made up the column, overcame the scruples of the loretuan, and away tl'J country edition went, with its tliibilogical puzzle l<> worry the hon est agricultural reader's head. There was plenty of time to s,t up a e< l iiim ol plain English for the local i dition." Kir Richard tells of a man whom •e met in Nottingham, who for tbir ' v-four \. ars prcserv. d a copy of the Leicester lb mid , hoping that some i.y the letter would is.- explained. >larU Twain's U|, The Hon. Homshame Hornet bad very unpleasant ex|xi ience lately, tlr. Twain was advertised to lecture ! n the town of ("oleehcster, but for 1 -oine reason failed to gel around. In die emergency the lecture committee lecidcl to i mploy Mr. Honiet to de. , 1v*• r bis celebrated lecture on tem|-r --nice, but *o late iii the day was Ins arrangement that lulls announcing it could not Is- circulated, and the au dience assembled expecting the cele brated innocent. Nobody in the town knew Mark, or had ever heard him lecture, and they had got the j notion that he wa* funny and went to the lei lure prepared to laugh. Even i those on the platform, except the ; chairman, did not know Mr. Hornet from Mark Twain and so when he | was introduced, thought nothing of the name, as they knew Mark Twain 1 was a nam de plume and supposed his ' real name was Hornet. The denoue ment is this: Mr. Hornet first re marked, "Intemperance is the curse of I the country." The audience hurst into a merry laugh. He knew it could not be IIIS remark and thought bis clothes must l>e awry, and he asked the cbair | man in a whisper if lie was all right anil got "yes" for an answer. Then lie said, "Rum slays more than dis ease!" a louder laugh. He couldn't understand it, hut went on. "It breaks i., happy homes!"still louder mirth. "It is carrying young men down to death and hell f" a perfect roar of applause. Mr. Hornet U-gan to gel excited. He thought they ! were guying him, but lie proceeded : —"we must crush the ser|ent! "—-a tremendous howl of laughter. The men on the platform, except the chairman, squirmed as they laughed. Hornet couldn't stand it. "What 1 am saying is gospel truth!" he cried. The audience fairly bellowed with mirth. Hornet turned to a man on the stage and said: "Ho you sec anything very ridiculous in my re marks or behavior?" "Yes, ha, ha, —it's intensely funny—ha ha ha! (}o on!" replied the roaring man. This is an insult," cried Hornet, wildly almot. More laughter and cries of "do on, Twain 1" And then the chairman got the idea of the thing, and loae up and explained the situation, and the men on the stage suddenly quit laughing, looked at each other in a mighty sheepish way,, and they quit laughing, too. And then Mr. Hornet, being thoroughly mad, told them he had never before got into a town so entirely populated by asses and idiots, and having said that, he left the hall. And the as semblage then voted to censure Twain and the chairman, and dispersed amidst deep gloom. AN architect who built a new ritv hall for a western town made a botch of it and fled to Canada, as he left wort! with his friends, "to remain until the affair should blow over." Next day a high wind struck the town and his friends telegraphed him: "Come back. Tho whole shebang was blown over last night."

Tin: current number of .STIVOOTV Monthly contains at least two articles 10l sp< Hal interest to farmers, \iz: "Notes of a \\ alker," by Rev. John Burroughs, and "Agricultural Kx |x-rim< nt Stations," by Mr. Charles IJ on aril. This is his lir-t full ac count ol an educational woik among farmers which is destined at an i arly day, to assume important proportions, and should be road by every farmer who wotdd keep himself abreast with the progress of Ins profession. 1 nt farmer who has the water sup ply for hi-, -lock so arrange! that the doubled-and '.wi-t.

Wc are endeavoring to so conduct j the agricultural department of the DEMOCRAT as to adapt it to the needs jof Centre county farmers, and are made glad by frequent assurances that we, in n goodly measure at least, succeed. Our farmer friends can aid , us in this by sending us their exjieri ences—and subscriptions. i WF. did not w rite either of the | following paragraphs, hut they are Just as good ami true as though we bad, and we place them in this col- J uran, that they may have whatever advantage is to lie derived frotn our editorial endorsement: A neglected, poorly-fed, stinted lamb never recovers, however well fed aftcrwatd, so as to make as good and as large a sheep as tt would had it had pro|ier care early. Feed the ewes so thnt they can supply the lambs with plenty of milk. Filling a horse's rack with hay, as some |>ersons do. and permitting a constant supply to remain before the animal, is one of the most probable means of producing disease, and Ike most positive in rendering animals unfit for fast work. Large supplies of hay have the effect of making the stomach large and weak. TIIK mission uf these long winter months seems to he to refresh and strengthen our languishing energfea and over-taxed tninda, to develop and mature plans for the future and to garner strength and vigor for their successful carrying out Without forethought, carefully matured plans, and sufficient preparation, permanent success is never obtained in anything.

Some fields have lieen farmed under this treat ment for. I am told sixty years, gen erally in corn, and will yet produce a fair crop. The land varies in col j or, some being of a dark chocolate color, while some again is known as the while soil: much of it is mixed with both. '1 lie land generally has a fine clay sulmoil, and will hold fertilizers for many years. Manure, I am told, lias shown its effects for twenty years. When we consider the treatment this land had in the past, and what it yet produces, its J -tren.th or durability is far superior ti Lancaster county soil. Farmers from the North have liet n surprised that our crops do not eijual theirs in bushels. They forgot the lime and manure they have for years put upon ; their lands. Isy successful farming they have made it more fertile than when first farmed, while this land has been scuffed since first settled. It yet produces from one to three bushel* of clover seed per acre. Clover and other grass,-* generally 1 do well. The main products are wheat, i <rn and oats, while tobacco has been raised quite successfully. MOM for Douse Plant*.

Board* and Shingles Cheaper than Teed, Zmm ih Ammtn Fsirasi It will require a great amount of 1 hay and grain to make up for the lose of heal of a c<w that i* obliged to remain in an exposed place all night when the thermometer is at or below zero. To keep up the heat in man and animals requires fuel, just the same a it does to keep our rooms comfortable; so if the fuel it of poor quality ami burned in a poor stove the result will of course be little more than weak ahes that will be of little value a* a fertilizer. Just the same thing will be observed if the cow is fed on damaged hay and mtteo straw, the result will be a very small quanti ty of poor milk and manure that will never do much good for our land. Feci I good hay and grain in a warm stable, and see the vast difference- A fat, slick cow, plenty of milk and but ter and fertilizers that will make the poor hill sidrs shine. A itniisic'i hoof is of the same nature as horn. If you desire to sec the effects of applying a hot shoe to a home'a boof, place yonr comb on a hot stove for s minute or two, then let it cool, and see how easily it will break. A hot shoe makes the hoof brittle instead of tough. Co** does not succeed well after buckwheat.
