Little flve-ycar'e-old Bobbie bad a great affection for all kinds of animals, and owned a cat and a dog which he conld never bear to have out of bis sight, and it was all that mamma conld do to induce him to allow Prince and Tabbie to go to the stable at night instead of sharing his bed. Last Bummer, how ever, while he was in the country, spend ing a few weeks with grandpa, he formed a new friendship, which for a time drove all thought of his old ploy fellows out of his mind. One day, while he was playing in the garden, he espied a big, fat toad sitting under a lettuce-leaf, and busily engaged in swallowing a large worm which he had just caught. Now Bobbie has an inquiring mind, so instead of rushing up and scaring him, as most children would have done, he stood quietly by to watch him. The worm was large and strong and had a decided objection to being swal lowed. The toad was, however, firm in his purpose; he struggled, and swal lowed a half inch at a time, while the worm writhed around above his head and seemed about to crawl forth from his confinement, as the toad's jaws were losing their grip. But he v. ;ts not to be defrauded of his dinner; so, bringing his right hand to his aid, he succeeded, after a little effort, in getting hold of the worm in his stomuch from tho outside, and held fast while he made an end of his prey. Bobbje at once ran to the house and told his grandpa and mother what he had seen. They could hardly credit it, but the next day when grandpa went out to hoe his potatoes, Bobbie followed to collect the earth-worms for his pet, who made his home under a large clump of lilac bushes close by the parlor win dows. He had no trouble with the small ones, but when given an enormous old fellow, grandpa with his own eyes saw the same performance Bobbie had wit nessed the day before. After that, Mr. Toad lived on the fat of the land, so to speak, for whenever worms or bugs were found they were thrown to him. In these same lilacs a yellow-bird had made her nest, nnd now there were four beautiful baby birds. Their mother was very fond of them, and spent all of her time in caring for them bringing them food, covering them from wind and rain witn her soft wings, or singing them to sleep with the most delightful mnsio. The nest was small and the birds got bigger very fast, and it seemed some times, when the branches swayed more than usual, that they must fall out. One afternoon whon Bobbie went to look at them from the parlor windows, there were but three in the nest. One had gone, but where ? He looked all around under the bushes, but could not find it. The next day another one was missing, and the day after the nest was empty. But as grandpa was hunting for them on the ground, he saw something just disappearing down the toad's throat that looked suspiciously like the legs of a very small Dim. rue tnougnt came to him that he might possibly be respon sible for the death of all the downy darlings, and at once determined to have him killed in order to see if it were so. Bobbie begged for his life, but grand pa would not relent and called John to come with tho ax. When Mr. Toad came to be dissected, two of the birds were found in his stomach, and they felt no doubt as to what had been the fate of the others. In one corner of the front yard there" was a large fountain, and oftentimes, just at night, the shrill notes of a tree toad could be heard coming, seemingly, from the middle of the basin. After much search, Bobbie found him perched on the edge of the fountain, where he was just moistened by the spray. He seemed quite at home there, and grew bo much accustomed to having people about that he would siug even though they came quite near. He sang a great deal, and as his voice was strong and shrill, he could be heard at quite a distance. Mrs. Spencer, who lived across the street, was an invalid and very nervous, and he annoyed her so much that she often threatened to have her husband shoot him if he were not disposed of in some other way. The tree-toad belongs to the genus Hyla, possesses great ventriloqual pow ers, and has the faculty of changing its color to that of the object on which it rests. Toads can live for a long time without food, and some people suppose without air also. They are often found im bedded in clay, solid trunks of trees, and even in rocks, where they are thought to have been for many years, perhaps centuries, yet on being let out of their prison they hopped off as lively as ever. The opinion of most scientific natura lists, however, is that this is either un true or inaccurate. That they can ex ist for some time without food is true, but in cases where they have been found imbedded in those apparently solid substances, there was, in fact, some slight crevice where they obtained air, and small insects sufficed to prevent starvation. The toad feeds on worms and insects, and generally goes about at night after his food. It swallows its prey alive, and oftentimes they may be seen to twitch, on account of the tickling caused by a large beetle or cricket in the stomach. They are of great service in the garden, and so much are they prized in England that they are collect ed and sold in the markets, a shilling being the usual price. The toad differs from the frog in having a long, well developed tongue and no teeth. The killing of a woman in a Woon socket (R. I.) variety show is an exhibi tion of raarkmanship has led to the pre sentation of bills in seven Legislatures forbidding similar performances. In several cases the proposed law includes all dangerous feats, such as the use of the trapeze and the tight rope; but gen erally only shooting and knife throwing are under the ban. Chinamen who have returned to their native country, after a residence in the United States, have introduced the growing of wheat to take the place of rice as a food staple. It is claimed that with the close care given to agriculture in that country, the yield seldom falls below forty bushels to the acre and that labor is so low that twenty-five cents a bushel returns an average profit. ; OSTRICH FARMING!. How the Baslnesa Is Carried ea la Neath Afrlra-The lacabatloa-Placalne;. Formerly the ostrich was hunted by men on horseback; but of late years the demand for the feathers of these birds has elevated the breeding and raising of ostriohes to the position of one of the great industries of Southern Africa, Ten years ago a gentleman named Dong lass, residing near Qrahamstown, in Cape Colony, conoeived the project of what is now Known as ostrich-farming. Having experimented with a few wild birds, and found that they would lay in confinement, he next set to work to de vise some method of artificial hatching. For three years he met with but little success, but finally he invented the patent incubator, since when he has Eroseonted his scheme in a manner that as made him famous. By means of the incubator the eleven birds with which the experiment was first tried have been increased to 900, and these being scattered throughout the district, have made ostrich farming nearly as popular among the residents of Gape Colony as diamond mining or sheep-raising. The farm of Mr. Douglass it situated a short distance from Qra hamstown, and occupies about 1,200 acres of rough ground, formerly devoted to wool-growing. Tho country around was, until within a short period, used as sheep walks, but a certain deterioration in the grasses rendered it unprofitable for such purposes. The quality is yet, however, sufficiently good to satisfy the ostrich, a mueh less fastidious creature than a sheep. There are at present on the farm about 300 birds, which are allowed to run in large enclosures. One of these is 3,000 acres in size, and has within it a troop of 240 birds. Once a week they are all hunted up by men on horseback, armed with large boughs of thorn to keep the birds off, as many are very savage, and their kick is dangerous. One man goes in front, with a pack-horse loaded with Indian corn, to lead them. The farm itself is divided into paddocks, and, with those which are breeding, one cock with two hens occupies each paddock. The young birds for they do not breed till they are three years old or those which are not paired, run in flocks of thirty or forty each. They are subject to diseases which, of course, require attention, and are apt to damage themselves, sometimes breaking their own bones and getting themselves caught in the wire fences. Otherwise they are hardy creatures, which can stand much heat and cold, can do for long periods without water, require no delicate feeding, and give, at existing prices, ample returns for the care bestowed upon them. The first necessity in artificial ostrich hatching is to procure the eggs. For this purpose the farmer provides himself with an assortment of dummy eggs, consisting of egg shells blown and filled with sand. By means of these he is usually successful in alluring the hens to lay. The birds are so large and the land is so open that there is little diffi culty in watching their maneuvers and obtaining the eggs as soon as they are in existence. As each egg is worth from $20 to $25, there will in course of time be naturally much temptation to theft. As yet, however, there is no market for the reception of the stolen goods, and to steal an ostrich egg with no means for batching it would be a useless piece of dishonesty. The incubator is rather an awkward piece of pine furniture, some eight or nine feet long, and standing on fonr legs. At each end there are two drawers. The eggs are first covered with some ar rangement of flannel, and are then laid, in the drawers, the latter being connec ted with a screwing apparatus, by means of which they are raised or lowered to the extent of two or three inches. Above the drawers, and extending over the whole of the upper part of the machine, is a tank filled with hot water. Each drawer, which contains about fifteen eggs, when filled and closed, is screwed up so as to bring the side of the egg in contact with the tank. In this way the necessary warmth is applied. Below the machine and in the center of it lamps are placed, which keep the temperature of the water np to the right degree. The incubating room is a large building so constructed as not to be affected by change of weather. Here several incu bators are at work. The work of hatch ing the eggs is most complicated, and requires not only care but a capacity for tracing results, which is by no means a common gift. The ostrich turns her egg frequently, so that each side of it may receive due attention. The ostrich farmer must, therefore, turn his eggs. This he does about three time a day. A certain amount of moisture is required, as in nature moisture exudes from the sitting bird. The heat must be moder ated according to circumstances, or the yolk becomes glue and the young bird is choked. Again, when the moment ar rives at which the young ostrich is ready to emerge from its shell it is frequently necessary to assist in this difficult per formance. After they are introduced into the world the young ostriches re quire the most tender care. Deprived of the attentions of their natural crnar- dian, it becomes necessary to replace her Dy a suDstitute, wno is usually chosen from among the coolies connected with the farm. To each lot of about thirty birds a man is told off, who from sunrise to sunset goes about in the lncern fields with them, cutting up the lucem for them, or breaking bones for them, and finding them gravel and water. They become immensely attached to their nurse, and, as a general thing, he is de voted to them; for each bird when hatch ed is supposed to be worth not less than $au. hen lull grown the value of an ostrich is from $300 to 400. The birds are plucked before they are a year old, but the age at which they cease to yield their periodical harvest of graceful plums lias not apparently yet been de termined. There are ostriches on Mr, Douglass' farm which have been robbed of their feathers at proper intervals for sixteen years, and yet the quality of uieir piumage aoes not depreciate. When plucking time has come, the necessary number of birds are enticed by a liberal display of mealies as maize or corn is caned in Houtit Alnca into a pen, one side of which is movable. The birds will go willingly after mealies, and will run about their paddocks after any one they see, in the expectation of these deli caoies. When the pen is full, the mova ble side is inn in, so that the birds are compressed together beyond the power of violent struggling. They cannot spread their wings, or make the dart forward which is onstomarv to them when about to kick. Then the men go in among them, and, taking np their wines, pluck or out their feathers. Both processes are common, but the former IB) 1UUBI HI, no utuug uio uiwo Lixuuuauiu. There ia a heavier weight to sell when the feather is plucked: and the quill begins to grow again at once, whereas the process is delayed when nature is called upon to eject the stump. Ap parently the ostrich Buffers but little when his feathers are drawn, for he takes scarcely any notice of the opera tion. The plucking has to be endured by the victim twice a year j that is, the tail, and the primary wing feathers, which are the only white ones, are plnoked, and also the secondary wing feathers, these being the black ones, which are valuable, but not bo much so as the others. When the harvest of plumes has been collected they are taken into the feather room and sorted into lots of various qualities. The white primary rim from under the bird's wing produces the best plumes. These are frequently sold for as high a price as $125 per pound. In spite of the difficulties to be con tended with, Mr. Douglass has been en abled to make ostrich-farming in his own particular case a complete success. As said elsewhere, there are now at his establishment about 800 birds, whioh, counting both young and old, are worth about $160 apiece, mese produce on an average feathers to a value of $75 per annum. The labor about the place is performed by coolies, except that whioh falls to the lot of the owner and two or three young men who are with him and are learning the work under his instruction, The coolies live each in his own hut with his wife and family. They receive a sum amounting to about $7 per month and rations; these consist of two pounds of meat and two of mealies a day. He is also given permission to build his hut upon the place and to burn his master's fuel. Coffee he may buy from his master's store, provided he desires the luxury. Harper s Weekly. A Brilliant Man's Sad Story. He came into the editorial rooms of the Iribune about noon to-day, a poor, shattered, tattered victim of rum. Jtie had been a journalist, published a magazine, been prosperous and success ful, was a college graduate, had been successful in business, held publio office in another State and had, between the ages of sixteen and twenty-eight, lived a life in itself. He had turned from the business of publishing a magazine to the traveling representative of a wholesale liquor house, and the appetite had grown upon him. Whisky, he said, had got the better of him. but Dr. L Linger was ex perimenting with cinchonia upon him, and he had new nope. He wan ' ed work. Would the city editor try to find it for him? He would, but cinchonia must work its perfect cure first. And then he told the story of his ill-spent life, while his nerveless hands and arms trembled in the tattered sleeves of his faded coat. He had a new hope, he said, and felt that there was new life dawning upon him. Beneath his old coat and dirty shirt there was energy and ability yet, he continu ed, if he could only break loose from the evil that had beset him. Would the editor like a poem ? The editor would see after it was written, and then he scratched off the following in a legible hand: HOPE.

Life. The general character of life is that of monotony. Whether we regard the life of man, or the life of beasts, we are struck by the same remarkable fact, that life, to all outward appearance, is a monotonous succession of scenes and movements all but inehticaL We won der how the interest is kept up. But we never tire of going to bed at night ; and we are very sorry when we (ret tired of getting up in the morning. We never weary, except with regret, of breakfasting, dining, and supping : and yet these actions are repeated incessant ly three hundred and sixty-five times in the year, with renewed excitement on every succeeding occasion. We take off our clothes once every day. and we put tnem on once every a ay. we do this, at nearly the same hour, in daily succession ; and when health is good, the pleasure from so doing is not marred by the repetition of the act ; for the ebbing and flowing of our bodily sensa tions prepare us, without any efforts on our part, for all the vicissitudes of onr existence. When hungry, food is agree able ; when weary, sleep or rest is i treat ; when warm, the cool air is agree able ; when cold, the pleasure derived from a cheerful nreside and a comfort able supper is delicious. The excite ment is kept up by the contrasts ; and we purchase tne enjoyment of one feeling by encouraging the reverse. With health, and youth, and prosperity, we should never be weary. It is ace. and weakness, and poverty that prepare us ior aeatn ; and even that comes easy, upon most men at least, like a sleep. and the heaviness of the heart gives even the last steep a welcome. A Cheap Commodity. Advice is cheap, consequently, many people are fond of giving it away. " If he had only taken my advice," says Mr, Wiseacre, "things might have been different." True, they might have been much worse. n or do we not all know. or believe we know, our own affairs, our own necessities, our own desires, better than any other mortal can ever know them, 8 ven though that other may be our most intimate friend ? And no mat tar how unreserved our confidence, how frank our admissions regarding the cir oumBtances in which we are placed, will there not always be some point or points on which we cannot be fully explicit to any human ear? So, even while we im agine that we have perfectly explained our own position, or have as perfectly comprehended the situation of another, some detail will always be wanting, whose omission changes the whole case perhaps makes the counsel whioh seemed so judicious entirely impracticable. Don't worry yourselves, then, over the good advice so often wasted on your friends, but try to remember that as you never can occupy their exact stand point, bo yon never can be an infallible judge of their proper conduct. To be sure, in some oases, your advice may be necessary; give it then humbly, not ar rogantly, and be oontent that it is ac cepted even with reluctance; for advice, at beet, is a nauseous pill to swallow.

We would not be a ithout it iu our family. We have used it for over fifteen years, and it has never disap pointed us yet" " A Farmer's Bon or Daughter." Bee Adv t A Pen Plctare. A few months, or even weeks since, her pallid oonntenanoe was the very type of ruddy health the delight of the sohool and the pride of the household. She was always weloome wherever duty or pleasure led her. Diligent, punctual, and exemplary, In the class room, obedient and loving at home, she won the hearts of all. But alas I those alowins cheeks and lips are now blanched by consumption. Tbe voice once so enchanting In laugh and song Is feeble, husky and broken by a hollow oough. Let us approach her couch and gently take her bloodless hand in our own. Do not shudder because of its feeble passionless grasp. The hand once so warm and plump shows its bony outlines, while the cords and tortuous veins are plainly mapped upon its surface. The pulse that bounded with reDletion. lmDart- ing beauty, vivacity, health, and strength, to uie system, is aencate to tne toucn. me en ervated heart feebly propels the thin scanty blood. Must we lose her while yet so young and so fair? No. There is relief. But some thing more is required than the observance of ienio rules, for enreeoiea nature calls for and she must bave it. Administer this pleasant medicine. It is invigorating. It al lays the irritable cough, improves the appetite and digestion, and sends a healthy tingle through her whole being. The blood is en riched, nervous power increased, and the heart bounds with a new impulse. Her face bright ens the blood is returning, her voice is clearer and her requests are no longer delivered in that peevisn, Iretiui tone so aeaaening to syrapatny. Her step is still faltering, but strength is rap idly returning. Let us take her out in the warm life giving sunshine. In a few weeks she will go without our aid and be able to Join her companions in their pleasant paxtimes and feel her who'e being "warmed and expanded into perfect life." The change is so great that we think she is sweeter and nobler than ever before. And the medicine whioh haa wrnnnht this transformation, we look upon as a blessing to humanity, for there are other loved ones to be rescued from the grasp of the Insidious de stroyer.
