VICTUALS AMI VALOlt.
l'ntrlntlnin "Not th" Brnverr li Only Incentive i Hutllc Pntriotism is no doubt a powerful lever in urging a soldier to take desper ate chances, but the late war proved that there were other levers of equal force. A New York lieutenant and thirty-four men held possession of a block house along the Baltimore and Ohio railroad in 1802. One morning a scout came in and reported that a force of 150 Confederates was advancing to capture the post. The lieutenant or dered the men in line and thus addressed them: "Soldiers, the enemy is advancing upon us I He will be here in half an hour. We shall be outnumbered four to one, but I appeal to your patriotism to your love of country to your respect for that dear old flag, to defend this post to the last. Will you do it?" "Lieutenant," said the sergeant, as he stepped forward after an ominous si lence, "we are too few and the Johnnies too many. We shall all be killed or captured, and the men won't stick. They go for evacuating right away." "Patriots and heroes," continued the officer, after drawing a long breath, "we have just received fresh rations of coffee, sugar and bacon. We haven't been to breakfast yet. If we evacuate we have got to march twelve miles on empty stomachs. If we remain and defend to the last, I'll issue double rations as soon as the last rob is driven oil". If you don't want to fight for your country, 'let's fight for a good, square meal." Every hat was thrown up and every man cheered, and twenty minutes later, when the enemy appeared, he was greet ed with such a hot reception that he soon sounded the retreat. When the Union forces under Nelson made their stand at Franklin, the Con federates had been tight after them for several days, and it had been a march of empty haversacks. As the Confederates formed for battle many of the regiments had been without food for twenty hours. Their first attack, after a patriotic ad dress, was speedily repulsed. Cleburne led a part of the force making the sec ond advance. As he rode along the lines he saw the men chewing leaves from the cherry and apple trees, and he said : "Bravo Confederates, there is the en emy. Behind those earth-works are cannon and muskets, and men who know how to use them. Behind those is a big wagon-train with heaps of rations. We've got to lick the enemy to get this train, and if we don't get his rations we'll have to fill up on yiass, for there isn't a Confederate hard-tack within twenty-five miles of Franklin. Follow mo to glory and rations 1" They followed him to the earth-works and over them, but he uas killed and the lines driven back. His men, how ever, were the only oni's who mounted the earth-works during that desperate bnttle ; and it is an pen question whether an oppeal to a soldier's hunger won't make him fight as well as an ap peal to his sentiment, Pree Press. Educating Horses. Ilorses can be educated to the extent of their understanding as well as chil dren, and can be easily damaged or ruined by had management. .It is be lieved that the great ditl'erence found in horses as to habits of reliability comes more from the different management of men than from variance of natural dis position in the animals. Horses with mettle are more ea ily educated than those of less or duli spirits, and are more susceptible to ill-training, and consequently may be good or bad, ac cording to the education they receive. Horses with dull spirits are not by any means proof against bad management, for in them may be found the most provoking obstinacy, vicious habits of different character that render them almost entirely worthless. Could the coming generation of horses in this country be kept from their days of colt hood to the age of five years in the hands of good, careful managers, there would be seen a vast difference in the general character of tho noble animals. If a colt is never allowed to get an advantage, it will never know that it possesses power that man cannot con trol, and if made familiar with strange ob,eets it will not bo skittish and ner vous. If a horse is made accustomed from his early days to have objects hit on his heels, back and hips, he will pay no attention to the giving out of har ness or of a wagon running against him at an unexpected moment. A gun can be fired from the back of a horse, an umbrella held over his head, a buffalo robe thrown over his neck, a railroad engine pass close by, his heels bumped with sticks, and the animal take Jt all as a natural condition of things, if only taught by careful management that he will not be injured thereby. There is a great need of improvement in the man agement of this noble animal less beating and more of education. WISE WORDS. Prosperity is a blessing to the good, but a curse to the evil. He who seems not to himself more than he is, is more than he seems. When anger rushes unrestrained to action, like a hot steed, it stumbles in its way. Bodily labor alleviates the pain of the mind ; whence arises the happiness of the poor. The vanity of human life is like a river constantly passing away, and yet constantly coming on. It is possible that a man can be so hanged by love that one could not rec ognize him to be the same person. When you talk to women you must choose between lying and displeasing them. There is no middle course unless you say nothing. To pronounce a man happy merely because he is rich, is just as absurd to call a man healthy merely because he has enough to eat. No man ought to complain if the world measures him as he measures others. To measure one with his own yard-stick may be hard, but is fair. And when we are in yjrosperity we are ready to think our mountain will never be brought low, so when we are in adversity we are ready to think that our valley will never be filled up. Fight hard against a hasty temper. Anger will come, but resist it stoutly. A spark may set a house on fire. A lit of passion may give you cause to mourn all your life. Never revenge an injury. Happiness is evident to us in this life by deliverance from evil. "Happy is he who see the day I " 6aid a blind man ; but a man who sees clearly does not say so. "Happy ia he who is healthy I " said an invalid. When he is well he does not feel the happiness of health. FAKJf, (UM)ES ASD HOUSEHOLD. The E(T. et of Drouglh. The Courtiy Gentleman recommends early planting in a rich soil as likely to preserve vegetables from the effects of drought. It is well known to farmers that a serious check is often given to vegetables which require water in their first stages of growth by severe droughts early in the season. Irriga tion at such times is rarely practicable. The best remedy, therefore, is to plant enrly and give a well-enriched soil. Early pli nting will often push the plants ko far in growth that their roots will sustain them in dry times. But still more helpful is a rich soil in two ways one by pushing the young plants on, and the other by holding more moisture than a thin soil can do. Very enrly planting can be practiced only on hardy plants. Tender ones are less in jured by drought. Take the onion crop for instance, which will bear very early sowing. Nothing hurts it more than a drought when the plants are the size of goopequills. Hence the most certain and heavy crops come from early planting and rich soils. Weeds are of course more or less fatal, but no good cultivator need be advised to keep a perfectly clean surface. How lo Inrrcnue Yrudnule Itlnltrr in the Moll. The amount of vegetable matter in the soil may be increased by various methods ; one is by large applications of barnyard manure, say fifty cords to the acre. But this would bo very ex pensive, and is out of the question in common farming. It may be done by putting on peat or muck, when these are near to the fields. But this involves a considerable outlay for labor in dig ging the peat, and a still larger expense in carting it, whether it first pass through tho yards and stables or be carted to the fields for conrDostinor or spreading upon the surface to be plowed in. Ua some farms tins may be the cheaper method of supplying vegetable matter to the soil. But "on others the most economical method is the raising of clover, to be fed off upon the land, or to be turned in. If a ton of clover may be worth '., as a fertilizer, tho growing of a plant is a cheap method of improving the land. Two tons for the first crop and a ton for the second is not an un common yield for land in good heart. The roots of clover also add Ingelv to the vegetable matter in the soil. The first crop may be pastured, waiting until the crop is in blossom, and then turning in cattle enough to feed it off in three or four weeks. They should be kept constantly upon the field, that the whole crop may be returned to the soil. This will of course help the second crop, which may be turned in with the plow Roon after it is in blossom. If the equivalent of three tons of dried clover hay, and one ton of roots have grown to the acre, about $:!6 worth of manure have been added to the soil, and it has been distributed more evenly than would have been possible by any mechanical process. There has been no expense for carting or spreading peat, or for composting. On the contrary there has been tho equivalent of two tons of clover-hay consumed upon the field, worth, as fodder, 24. This will more than pay the cost of seed, of plowing twice, and other labor. Thisis generally admitted to be the cheapest method of increasing the vegetable matter and the tertility of soils in common farming. Aim tins it will be seen requires some little capital. I'm in mill Cartlrn Null's. It is recommended to soak seeds in water that has been slightly acidified with nitric acid. A little ammonia added to the water will hasten germin ation. Eel grass is almost indestructible in the hog-pen or barnyard, and yet can be easily decomposed by composting with quicklime or wood ashes, when it makes a valuable fertilizer, as it contains one third per cent, nitrogen, one per cent, potash and a quarter of one per cent, phosphoric acid. Libels placed in linseed oil and soaked will hold paint marks plain for years. Mixing salt with manures and com posts will kill white grubs as well as seeds of weeds. Afterward spread broad cast and plow, harrow or cultivate into the soil. Tr'm trees in open weather. Scatter all the wood ashes you can get under tne peach trees anil cut back the new growth one-half. Sow refuse salt and brine broadcast under all fruit trees. Grow more grass ; this recuperates the laad, and at the same time vields a profitable return. Look out for lice on chickens or tur keys as soon as tbev can run nicely. If you don't you'll be sorry. It is said that a strong tea made from boiling sassafras roots used asaash will kill lice ou cattle and horses. Instead of fooling awav your time in whitewashing hen-houses (on the out side) or chicken -coops to kill lice, paint them with kerosene. That will kill lice every time. All feeders who have studied the habits of tho animals they feed have discerned that they take special note of time ana are disappointed if the time l, delayed only a few minutes. Stnnghalt is an affection of the nerves and incurable. It is caused bv a loss of the power of .the nerve which controls the muscle bv which the leg is lifted, the action then being spasmodic, irregular and excessive, causing the high lifting usual in this order. However good the roosting-house may oe, ana nowever extensive the grass runs, a place should be provided where the poultry can congregate during wind and rain and be perfectly dry and sheltered. This dry run should face south and bo protected from east winds, A cow should have from fifteen to twenty pounds of hay daily, with five to ten pounds of corn-meal, in propor tion to her size and capacity for eating A cow of COO pounds will do well on fifteen pounds of hay and six pounds of meal. If the hay is cut and wetted and the meal added to it, the food will be better digested and more economically used. One-third of the hay may be given at noon, uncut. These rations are proper for milking cows. Dry cows may do well on fifteen pounds of hay and two quarts of meal, and the cutting maybe dispensed with if the labor is thought to cost more than the fodder, Kerosene will destroy the mealy bug, but will also destroy the plant. It can not be diluted with water, as the two will not mix, but milk will mii with kerosene, and then the combination will mix with water, and in this way kerosene can be effectively used for destroying I jess parasites. Iterlpea. Beet Salad. The new beets must be thoroughly boiled nothing is worse in the way of food than a half-cooked beet When done cut them while hot in rather thin slices and marinade them that is, let them lie for an hour or two in a mixture of two tablospoonfuls oil, one spoon vinegar and a small pinch of salt. Of course more than this must be used if there is to be a large dish of salad. When ready for sorving put them in the salad dish with some very young and tender leaves of uncooked dandelion. Dress with oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in the usual way. Lemon Cake. Beat to a cream one cup of butter and three cups of pow dered sugar. Add the yolks of five eggs, previously well-beaten, the juice and grated rind of one lemon, and a cup of milk with one teaspoon of saleratns (or baking powder) dissolved in it. Then add the whites of the eggs beaten to a stiff froth ; sift in four cups of flour and bake. Stewed Tomatoes. Take fine ripe tomatoes and pour over them boiling water, in order to loosen the skins. Slip off tho skins and lay the tomatoes in a dish with a little butter, salt and pepper scattered over them. Set them on the stove and let tnem cook siowiy about fifteen minutes. Then take them off and turn them. Add a little more butter, and dredge over them a little flour. Pour over them a scant cup of milk to make a gravy ; set them back on the stove to scald about ten minutes. Filling fob Layer Cake. A deli cious filling for layer cake is made in this way: Take a cup of white sugar, put it into a tin basin with enough water to dissolve it, let it boil until it will harden in cold water, have a cupful of stoned and chopped raisius ready, then beat the white of one egg into a stiff froth, put with the raisins into the boiling sugar, stir briskly, and while warm put it between the layers of cuke, which should be all ready, having been taken out of the tins and laid on a cloth, so that you may easily select one which is nicely browned for the bottom of the cake, and another very smooth one for the tor). IlnilNi liiiliI Hints. Nothing is better to clean silver with than alcohol and ammonia ; after rub bing with this take a little whitening or a soft cloth and polish in this way ; even frosted silver, which is so difficult to clean, may be easily made clear and bright. Silk neckties can be washed in rain water, to one pint of which add a tea spoonful of white honey and one of hartshorn. Do not squeeze but let them drip, and when nearly dry press between folds of cloth. When water has once been made to boil the fire may be very much lessened, as but little heat is required to keep it at a boiling point. Ihere is no advan tage whatever in making the water boil furiously ; the heat will escape in steam without raising the heat of the water. A Rnco Between Geese ninl Turkeys. In Percy Fitzgerald's " Life of George IV." this humorous anecdote is told During a convivial party at the Carlton House Mr. Hanger designedly intro duccd the subject of the traveling pow ers of the turkey and the goose. The Prince of Wales, who pla-ed great reli ance on his judgment in subjects of this nature, backed his opinion. A match was made with Mr. Berkely of twenty turkeys against twenty geese, for a dis tance of ten miles, the race to be for 2,500; and then as Mr. Hanger and the turkey party hesitated not to lay two to one in favor of their birds, the prince did tho same to a considerable amount, not in the least suspecting that the whole was a deep-laid plan to abstract a sum of money from his pockets. The prince deputed Mr. Hanger to select twenty of the most wholesome and high-feathered birds which could be procured, and on the day appointed he and his party cf turkeys, aud Air. Berkley and his party of geese, set oil to decide the match. For the first three hours everything seemed to indi cate that the turkeys would be the win ners, as they were then two miles in ad vance of the-geese; but as night came on tho turkevs began to stretch out their necks toward the branches of the trees which lined the sides of the road. In vain the prince attempted to urge them on with his pole, to which a bit ol red cloth was attached, in vain Mr. Hanger dislodged one from its roosting- place only to see three or four others comfortably perching among the branches: in vain was the barley strewn upon the road. In the meantime the geese came waddling on, and in a short time passed the turkeys, whose parly were all busy among the trees attempt iug to dislodge the birds; but further progress was found impossible, and the geese were declared the winners. Wealth in Wool. The United States census of 1810, which was the first one wheie elements other than that of population were in troduced, shows twenty-four woolen factories that spun vara, and 9,258,209 yards of woolen cloth woven m families, valued at 84,413,000. In 1800 woolen establishments had increased to 2,020 employing 40,000 work-people of vari ous grades, and producing goods valued at $07,300,000 annually. The demand for blankets and clothing for soldiers during the civil war caused a general advance in prices, and a corresponding increase in factories, so that in 1870 persons employed in the manufacture numbered 97,000, who produced goods valued at 177,000,000. The demand for woolen fabrics natur ally increases with the population. Since 1M6 this country has imported wool either manufactured or in the raw, to the value of over 1,200,000,000, and for the past four years, in the aggregate, 8170,000,000 has been brought in, while the export has been comparatively timing. In 1875 the total duties on wool and woolen textures amounted to 30,914, 030, which is the largest annual revenue the government had received on these articles, with the exception of those of the four years previous to 1840. By this exhibition it will be seen that the wool-grower in the United States meets with a remunerative reward for his labor. In fact, it is another evi dence that almost any legitimate occu pation in this country "pavs" when properly attended to. Keuo York Com.' mercial.

It is a Christian and brotherly charity to suppress our knowledge of evil of an other, unless tho evil have such rela tion to society that our higher public duty compels us to bear accusing wit ness. And if it be a true charity to keep our knowledge of such evil to ourselves, how much more should we refuse to spread evil report of one another. Dis creditable as the fact is, it is by far the commonest tendency to suppress the good we know of our neighbors and friends. We act in this matter as though we felt that by pushing our fellows down or back a peg we were putting ourselves up and forward. Wo are jealous of commendation unless we get the larger share. Social conversation as known to every observer, is largely made up of what is best understood by the term scandal. It would be difficult to find a talkative group, of either sex, who could spend an evening or an hour together without evil speech of some body. " Blessed are tho peacemakers," is not the maxim by which we are chiefly governed in our treatment of personali ties. Better a thousand times stand or sit dumb than to open our lips never so eloquently in the disparagement of others. hat we should do in this, as in all our human relations, is to practice the golden rule. If wo do unto others as we would that others should do unto us we shall be exceedingly careful not to volunteer ill words about them. Where other than a good word is to be ;pokcn, let it be spoken to the person concerned, that he may know your motive is not idle, cowardly or sinister, and that he may have a chance to de fend himself.

When within twenty-five fett of the precipice he grasped at a rose bush. It tore through his hand, lacerating his rlngeis, but brought him to a stop nearly upon the brink. It was a moment of horror lest the shrub give way and dash him upon the rocks below.
