He walked into one of the banks yet rday morning with firm step, and goiug strcight to the teller's window he remarked : 'It's mighty cloee times.' Yes,' was the brief reply.

Don't dat philosophy allude to your finncial judge ment like a load of brick ?' The cashier didn't even smile. Dat's dc way to get aloiig,' continued Mr. Jones. 'I've handled a heap of money in my time, and dar ain't cullud pu&sun in de city dat pays de atteshun to dc finances as I do. Ite solution is yours. I don't make any charge for it. I want to see this rouutry run ahead, and I want folks to to know how is can do it.' He cast a Ions lingering look at the cashier, and tin-u walked out. 2rjTioMXu a DiTtHJUX. The Ne vada Sihti ' Star says : At a recent trial in the Elko county court our friend liishoif, of tlie Humboldt brewery, was called as a witle ss. Mr. Uishoffis one of the 'solid' men of Elko, where he has been in business since the town was started in the winter of 1S."S. Upon being sworn, Counselor Hand, one f the attorneys in the case, who by the way, is an old resident of Elko, said : 'Mr. Iiishof! , w here do you reside V" 4 Where I reside ? What for you ask me such foolish tliiugs ? You drinks at my place more as a hundred times.' 'That has nothing to do with the cac on trial. Mr. lliahoff, state to the jury whew you reside.' 'Do nburry ! de shurry ? Oh, by jiminy ! efery cr.tlemen of dis shurry has a string of roirks on niy cellar door just like a rail feme.' His Honor here interceded in the : couiselor's behalf, and in a calm and dig- . nllicl manner requested the witness to tfale where b resided. 'Oh, excuse me, ; ehuJge ; you drinks at my place so many ; tloiw and pays me nothing, I dinks you j knows old JiisholTvat keeps the brewery.'

It is easily nndertood ; familiarity with its action is very quickly acquired, and it needs hardly any practice of s nl skill in the operator. The superior advantages obtained in the "Do mestic" are mainly i 1. Light Running. 2. Quietness -no Cams or Gear Wheels. S. Perfect Slitch Double-thread Look Stitch. 4. Durability arising from Simplicity of Con struction. 5. Absence of all Friction. C. Great range of Work. 7. Ease of Operation. We do not say thtit the "Domestic" is the only Machine worthy of public favor. We admit there are some" possessing real and acknow ledged merit; but we doclaim, and are prepared to demonstrate, that the "Domestic" has muuy excellences that render it dteiiledly wptrior to any otlur MmMh now before the public. Let every woman, therefore, exumine for her self into its merits when she buys a machine. This is an important purchase, not to be care lessly made ; oue that will Influence her coin fort, probably for a long time. With a "Domes tic" in her possession, she will find her sewing become a pleasant exercise o( skill and taste, in stead of a slow manual drudgery ; she will have the time and strength to add beauty and elegance to work in which before she has been obliged to content hcrelf with bare utility.

Shying gen- " dally aties frona' timidity, but soineiiinea it is . nuited witu euuiiiuir. and imiuees the animal to assume a rear of same object for the sole porposo : of andin aa excuse for turmnj; aside. The usual cause of shying is, doubl:es, the presence of some object to which the horse baa uot been accuelotueri, and if be has defeeliv eyes, whien render him short sighted, il wiil be difficult to convince him of the innocent nature of the novel object. There are endless peculiarities in shying hortse-, some being drendfully alarmed by one kind i.r object, which ia not at ail formidable. The bel plau of treatment which can be adopt, rd, is to take as little notice as possible of the ahyinir, and to be rpecialJ careful lo show no fear of its recurrence when ihe "alarming" ob ject appears iu ihe distance. Wtieu the horse begins to show alarm, but not till then, the driver should speak encouragingly to him, and, ir necessary, witb a severe tone, which may even be supported ty the use or the whip if his onward progress can not otherwise be maintained. The principle which sbontd be carried out, i to adopt such measures as wiil get the horse to pass the object at which he shies, somehow or other, and this should be effected with as liuie violeuce as possible, always commanding in an encuuragiUar tone as soon as the purpose is earn ed. Nothing b:is ureal a tendency to keep up the habit aa tbe plan so cotuuiou among ignorant grooms of chstiaiug the shyer after he has. passed the object of his alarm. If he can be persuaded to go quietly np lo it, and examine with bis muzzle, aa well as with bis eyes, great good wilt be effected, but this can seldom be done with moving vehicles, and heaps of stouts or pile of sand are generally only alarming from defective vision, so that eb time they ass u mo a new phase to the active imagination of the timid auimal.

The time will soon arrive for general seed sowing, and a hiul or two in regard to il may not be out of place. Much that is sown never appears, and thV seedsman is charged with selling old- or poor seeds. Sometimes this may be so, bat very often it Is the sower's own fault. , There is much more art in sowing seeds successfully than people suppose, and yet it is very simple when under stood. Muuy seeds are sowu too deep, and yet if not deep euoutcb they will dry np and not 'grow at all. The depth must be determined by the size of the send and tbe character of the soil, if tne soil be lmbt and saudy, there is not so much dauger of seeds rotlinir from deep sowing as If the soil be stiff; and even in stiff soil tbe depth will have to be determined by the condition of the soil. Suppose we are sow a piece of oals, in land that is liable to become clotty, and this to the distinction between light and heavy laud. If we can roll tbe laud after sowing il would not matter much about sewing deep ; bnt tbe seed would have lo be harrowed in pretty well if ,)"J in a clotty condition nr rolled. Indeed if the . seed were sown on ground simply first harrowed -and then rolled, in such land aa we have escrib ed, many more seed would do well than if bar. rowed before rolling. In other words, shallow sowing, if the ground is well-pulverized and pressed firm, is more favorable than deep plant ing wilh a rough surface. Finely pulverized soil. With a well-pressed surface, in indeed the very best conditions for success with all seeds ; and the shallowest kind of sowing", so that tbe . seeds be firmly imbedded in tbe soil, is the es aeuce of good seed sowing. Gtrmantmen Tti grrph. Lime is oue of the constituents, lo a grmler or le extent, of all soils that are capable of cnlti val'ou. Ali pliuiU remove eouie of the lime from the soil, especially wheat, clover, barely, oat ' and turnips. It follows that unless the lime be restored, exhaustion will ensue. Tet lime can uol strictly be said to be a manure. It ia rather a stimulant. Successive applications of lime without manure will only quicken the ex haustive process. As a means of bringing back, ' run down land, lime alone ia useless,. Jta action is to decompose vegetable matter and lo render more quickly available the piaut food thai aU , ready exists iu the soil. Iu this direction it acts like magic. It follows thai the best lime la apply lime u immedialvly after the application of a heavy dressiug of stable manure, or after tuiuing under a green crop. Canad Farmtr. To Restore Gii.t Frames.
