Hthi Jabbcdtsmtnts. Agricultural. A Miner's Hat. Ouc nilit, during the recent troubles ia the Pennsylvania coal regioui, Judge Potts' brother, Thomas Potts, was round at a meeting of mine owners, and alter the adjournment he ttep Id iu at a tavern. While there he met some friemls, and in the courso of an hour he became very intoxicated. On his way home he lost his h.itf and a miner who knew him, fccliug compassion fur him, clapped on his head a miner's hat, aud in order to make the dark street look brighter he lighted the little lamp in front of the hat. When Potts icaibcd his house his wife had sjn to bed, and the lights were out, hut Potts telt certain the lamp was burning in the hall, but he couldn't for the life of him tell where it was. He looked at the rcjzolar lamp, aud that seemed to be out ; tlieu huuttd in every direction for the light, but ho was unable to find it, although it seemed to shine brightly wherever he went. Prcsentlv he happened to slop in front of the mirror in tha hat rack, aud then he saw precisely where the lamp was. After a brief objur gation upon Mrs. Potts lor leaving the light in such a preposterous place, he weut up to the mirror and tried to blow it out. lie blew and blew, but somehow the llamc burned as steadly as before. 'That,' said Polls, is the moz cxtra or'nary lamp's ever been my misfortune to encounter.' Then be took off his coat, and, halding it in front of him, crept cautiously up to the mirror, Mil tried to crush the coat over the lamp, which still burned brightly. Jle said r 'Thai1 cer'inly tery extro'nary 1 moz 'stoDiahii' circumstans ever come uu'er my observation. Don', no how t'count for it-' It occurred to him Uieu that perhaps he might smash the lamp with his umbrella. Seizing the weapon, he went up to the hat rack, aiming a terrible blow at tho light, he brought the umbrella dowu. lie missed and smashed his Sunday bat into chaos. He took aimagain, and caught the umbrella in 'the lamp overhead, bringing it down with a crash. Then he tiied a third time, and plunged the fers'.c of tbc Umbrella through the mirror, and smashed it to atoms ; be felt exultant for a moment, as the I:;' In disappeared from Lis vukn. but he was jicrplexed to find lb eta was another liht somcwltere, lie did not know exactly where. So he sat dowu on the slairs, ami remarked : - - Mos stomshiu' circumstans ever corns un'er my obzervazion. W ha ten thunder dot" it mean, au' bow ? Light's gouc, on' an' yet it's bhiniu' ! Perfec'ly incompres sible. Wish 1' gracious Mrs. Poods wake up an' 'spkin it Durn 'f I know what I had better do.' Then Potts took off his hat to scrath his head, in the hope that he might scar up au idea, and the truth flashed upon him. Gazing at the lamp for a roomcut, until be dm ok in a full conception of the trouble it had caused him, lie suddenly smashed it down on the floor in a rage aud extinguish ed it, after covering two yards of carpet with grease. Then he went to bed, aad in the murning Mrs. Potts informed hita that sums of those awful miners had broken into tho bouse the night before, aud left one of their hats with a lamp. Potts turned over in bed so that she could not see his face, and said if the stern hand of tha law wasn't laid upon those ruffians soon noboMj's life would be safe. A New Capitalist. lie didn't look as if his pockets held fifty ceuts, hot a rich man Las a right to dress m b chooses. He loaied np Griswold street until be saw the liphl sort of face, and then asked: Can you show me a bank ?' Ves, sir; three doors below, or Just across the street, or right back there.' 'Thanks. I'd like to put some money in 6ome bank, but I'm a little afraid of banks. I always did prefer a note of hand to a bank.' The citizen pricked ut his ears and ask ed : 'You have some money to lend, have you ?' . , . A trifle,' was the auswer. Do yon know of auybody who'd like to take some aud give me a note for a year at seven per cent. ? I think of going to Mexico for a while. - - 'ljbl' see ?' tuuebed the eitizen, 'I don't know but I'd take some myself.1 'Imoii git a drink and then we'll talk,' said the stranger. Yes, certainly ; como aa,' replied the citizen, and the two went into a basement. Drinks were ordered by the citizen, one alter another, until his shinplasters fslt louelj. He said he could sake good use of a few thousand dollars for a year, and some of his friends might also take a thoa eand more. The stranger put down gin, whUkey, lager aud brandy until his logs gave out. The citizfn laid him on a bench and tried to sober him, but the fellow went dead asleep while they were irying te force vinegar down his throat. The bar-keeper said he was au old loafer, and a policeman was sent for to take him to the station house. 'When they got hiia down there aud searched bim, they found four cents, a brass-backed comb, and a doorkey in his pocket, and the citizen who wanted to borrow a few thousand dollars went to see if the mail had come in. AWkll-Posted Hot. History never Jumps over Detroit There are too many old battle-grounds around here for the his torian to get past without at least a few paragraphs. The fight at Bloody Run has been widely .read of, and strangers often asked to have the locality pointed out Yesterday a man dropped off a streot car at the Jefferson avenue brides to look around and Jet memory carry him back to Indian days felt anxious to know Low the fight came to be called Woody Hun. By and by a boy came slamming along, and the stranger beckoned to him and asked : 'Sonny, is this Iiloody Run ?' 'You are bloody right it is,' was the e joinder. 'Kight around here is where the British troops were, is it 1" Yes, sir; and down in the gully were the bloody injuns.' And they fought !' 'Bloody sure. They didn't como here to play, you bet' 'Was there much loss ?' Bloody big one.' 'Can you tell me,' coutinued the strang er looking around, 'why they call it Bloody Ruu ? 'Yes, sir ; ooc' when them soldiers found there were ton Indians to oae white man they run so bloody fast that you can find eld boot heels around here yet 1' The stranger may have taken somo away as relics.

A writer in Root's Garden 2Ianuel,taya : "Generally, I know of no' objection to fresh manure, except that if applied heavily they trouble iu fitting the ground for line, seeds. On the contrary, I have always noticed very good effects from Ihe use ef long manures, and advise piling manure only when uo ground is prepared to reeciv it. But this period covers a considerable portion of the year, and much of it must be spoiled.- : If left thus in warm weather without further attention, fresh manure iiX"" ably fire-fangs burns up and loses n ' Us virtues, till it is little belter than el avoid this, after several dajs. hauling ol we give it a good drenching with v to fix all the escaping ammonia.

Unlerfched ashes have a most marked effect when applied broadcast over onious partly grown in fact, it is one of the most valuable special manures for this crop, aud Is worth for this pur pose twice the amonnt paid by soap-makers.

Lime is of most value en rich old soils its ef fect being to unlock and release fertility already in the soil, but luactivc or insoluble. Hence, upon poor soil it may sometimes do more harm than good, but used on rieh old garden soils its use occasionally will produce astonbhing re sults.

Some of the most marked be nefits from its use have been noticed upon vines during a drought. If applied over the surface of the hill and vines during a drought so severe that the leave droop at mid-day, they will, in a couple of days, show no sli,'ns of drooping, but exhibit unusual vigor. Stick to the Fai:m. Within tho last year or two we can number a half dozen of our farmer acquaintances who have been lured to financial deatructioa by the glamour of speculation. And ifoing back ten years and carefully looking np tho history of tbe men we know who have left the farm to engage In trade, we flud that not one in tea succeed. A recent ease has come to our knowledge that i foil of instruction to those who are tempted to leave the farm. By his own exertions alone the farmer had accumulated a handsome competence, aud at the age of fifty could look with pride over his acres of rich land, his tine herds and flocks and comfortable build ings. He was out of debt, and bad a handsome surplus in the bank. Two years ago, in an evil hour, ho was induced to invest in a dry goods store. Last fall his farm and stock were sold for debt, and he reduced to the necessity of day labor tosuppoit his large and yet dependent family. All the accumulations of over thirty years of hard toil many of them years of priva tion, hardships aud the closes; economy swept away iu a few months by this demon, specula tion. And this is not a solitary case. Every render can count similar ones ia his own list of acquaintances. They all teach one a great les sou stick to your legitimate business i-i which you have succeeded. "Let well enough alone." A man who has lived all his life on a farm staads but little chance to compute snccessfally with the men who have been educated and train ed for speculative pursuits. The two occupa tions are extremes bouest toil at one end aud the tricks of trade at another. If yon have good farm keep it, improve it, adorn it, be preud of it, aud when you are done with it hand it down to your children, the best inheritance, with a good name aad education, that yon could leave them. Ohio Former. Uakkowiso Wheat. The uniform testimony of all those who have tried harrowing wheat in the spring is that it pays. One says : "I flud the result at harvest most satisfactory.. 1 began the custom by harrowing fifteen acres, or about one half the n.ual number of acres that I sow. My neighbors, who had never seen it done. In sisted that it would kill it out. I shall continue the practice, as I have now procured a smooth ing harrow, which, in a great measure, euables me to dispense with the roller, which I still use, however, when the early spring is an unusually dry oue. I thiuk by using the harrow that the wheat tiilers that is, stools out better than wheu it is not cultivated in the spring." Another subscriber writes as follows : 'I find that harrowing wheat in the spriug pays welt. It gives the wheat a good start, aDd the harrow ed portion ripens as early as tbe unharrowed parts, aud has heavier seeds." In harrowing wheat cure must be taken that the soil is sufflcently dry, so that tbe harrow will pulverize it nicely. In such cases once har rowing is as advantageous to the wheat crop as one good working of a field of corn in tbe early stages of its growth. Experience and judgment must determine the precise time when this work should be done. It should not be doue until the heavy frosts In March are ever, which will, how ever, depend much upon the season. Rural Plast tub best Sbkd. Many farmers, no doubt, wouder how it is wheu they have bought a new kind of seed (wheat for iustaace) that iu a few years it has lost lis excellence, and that they have an opportunity of buying a choice article, a grain at a high price. The query is, where does it come from t That "work will tell" is a safe axiom. Take our advice, whe your wheat is ripe go over the Held aud hand pick tbe best heads. Plant this, aud repeat tbc proce.s every year, aud you will have aa excel lent se:d wheat for sale. The same will prove true lu coru, aud in fact every crop. Posibly the potatoes do not depend so much upon tue perfective quality of seed planted, but we believe it is a rule that should never be deviated, to p hi nt all seeds from the most perftct of their kind. Experiments have proved that seeds, liko stock, are improved not by frequent ehacges,. but by great care in propagating the best. W'ttttm Rural. Si i'ekiou Boiled Ham. Select the leanest part, aud cut the slice evenly about one-eighth of an inch. Have ready a bed of nice bright coal, aud warm the platter over a kettle of boll lug water ; lay the gridiron over the coals nutil nearly hot enough to hiss ; then rub it off, lay on the ham, and boil euickly. It should be browned a trifle whesait touches the bars of tha gridiron, so as to look striped. When broiled both sides, lay It on tbe platter, place a piece of sweet butter on each slice, and dust on a trifle of pepper. Serve with mashed potatoes, boiled eggs, am! grated horseradish. If too salt, it will be necessary to lay tbe slices in tepid water to frcsheu, although much of its flavor will be lost in the freshening. Dessert for fried and boiled bam, apple or tart pie ; in winter, mince pie. To Stkw Calf's Head.
