horses, when they are not at work, it
is perfectly safo to keep a supply of
Euro water always within their reach ;
ut as before remarked, thcro is some
danger in this plan when they aro

Thoro is a very certain way of deter

and ;produces a morbid action of tho

application of tho above mixture tho

would doubtless occur.
Canning Fiiuits. It may be interest
ing to your readers to know that in
theso times of high prices many fruits
can bo preserved with little or no sugar.
Currants, gooseberries, cherries,
peaches and pears, require no sugar to
Erescrvo thom. Raspberries andblack
errics do not require moro than four
ounces of sugar to a pound of fruit,
and strawberries but little moro. Wo

fresh and good as when first gathered.

used tho usual quantity of sugar that

Chop Repoiits ron Arnit, and May.
Tho bi-monthly report of tho commis
sioner of agriculture, for Anril and
May, is published, and on tho whole
gives a very favorablo nccount of tho
present crop. Winter wheat was not
so much damaged by tho variablo
weather of tho winter as at first ex
pected, though it is estimated that tho
total falling off from last year's yield
will bo about 30 per cont. Spring
wheat is looking remarkably well, but
tho average amount was not sown. A
fair breadth of corn was planted, and
tho crop is looking very well. Oats
and barley have been sown in greater
abundanco than usual, and wero never
looking so well. Tho hay crop is ro-
porieu as looinng remaiKaoiy well m
almost every locality, with tho prospect
of an extraordinary crop. But it is
likely tho drouth in Juno will prevent
this expectation being realized in many
localities, ui lnuts apples aro re
ported as looking well at tho
t5 tatcs, but poorly at tho West, and tho
samo distinctionu is mado in most all
tho fruit crops. Tho peach trees, as
wol as tho fruit, wero killed in many
places at tho West by tho severity of
tho winter. Thcro will not bo an av
erage crop of grapes in most localities,
but in California thcro is a prospect of
an unexampled yield, and larger pre
parations than usual aro being made
for wine-making. Tho commissioner
speaks with gratification of tho largo
increase of tho maplo sugar and mo
lasses crop, and should tho sorghum
yield bo good, the high prico and largo
importation of foreign sugars will bo
much decreased. Tho correspondents
of tho department all over the country
speak of tho scarcity of help, which
was greatly aggravated at tho West by
the departure of tho 100 days' men.
In many places tho women have had
to go into tho field to tako tho places
of thoso gono to tho war, and in some
sections tho country is largely indebted
to thom that so much ground has been
planted, and that tho crops look so

Spaiie tiik Bums ! The blithe, cher
ry Jittlo feathered songsters who havo
been spending tho winter in warmer
climes, are fast returning to our fields
and woods, and aro ushering in tho
spring with sweet carols. Their delight
ful music is dear to every lover of na
ture, and every such pcrsou bids them
a hearty welcome Not so, wo aro
pained to hear, rudo boys in somo lo
calities, who aro pursuing them With
murderous guns and shooting them in
wanton sport. Wo hopo thcro aro
few cruel enough to indulgo in such j
brutal pastime, but wherever thcro aro
such, tho law should at onco bo invoked
to stop their merciless slaughter.
Not only aro lovers of birds, as ono
of tho plcasantest features of country
hfo, interested m this matter, but tho
farmer, whoso pecuniary success is
greatly affected by tho presence or ab
so'nco of tho birds. To the farmer they
aro of incalculable value in destroying
millions of noxious insects that would
othorwiso play havoo with his crops.
In ono of tho districts of Franco, a few
years smco, tho birds, by a mistaken
policy, wero all killed on. I ho con-
sequenco was that tho farmers crops
suffered severely from, tlio depredations
of tho insect tribes. Tlio people, dis
covering thoir error, set to work to re
stock their fields and woods with
birds, prohibited tho shooting of them,
and in timo tho insect pests wore
thinned out. It is not only cruel but
a serious injury to agriculture to shoot
tho birds. Wo havo stringent laws
on tho subject in this State and they
should bo rigidly enforced. Sparo tho
Clou's Plan op Youn Lin:. Novor
complain of your birth, your employ
ment, your hardships; novor fancy
that you could bo something if you
only had a diffrront lot and sphero
assigned you. God understands his
own plan, and ho knows what you
want a great deal better than you do.
Tho vory thing that you most depro
cato as fatal limitations or obstruc
tions, are probably what you most want.
What you call hindrances, obstacles,
discouragements, and probably God's
opportunities; and it is nothing new
that the patient should dislikohis med
icines, or any certain proof that they
are poisons. No ! A truce to all such
impationco. Choko that envy which
gnaws at your heart, because you aro
not in tho samo lot with others; bring
down your soul, or rather bring it up
to receive God's will, and do his work,
in your lot and sphere, under your
cloud of obscurity, against your temp
tations, and then you shall find that
your condition is never opposed to
your good, but consistent with it. Br.

on boiling water until tho cup is full.
