Thi.- i.-f a elesr case of feminine extravagance. Tbc pre-cnt Mrs. llcikinij) is a sister t-f the secretary's l.n..tl ,1... r...,,.-... r.f f t...t ft...,. fir-t w ile. She w:ih :i Toinlinson, ;f llarrodsburg. Ivy., ami was a bijrh flver of the highest flyiug kind. She was wont to come to New Voik, and imike the tnost extraviigant j'lirchas e-, for her principal ambition was 10 outshine eveiy woman in Washing ton, native or foreign. And she did it. Her dresses were the 1.10-t gorge ous, her eijuipuges were the !!)ot cosily, and she was surrouiidi d with pervautsof the most expensive nature. It was given out in Washington thiit she did notdeprDd on the secretary's suUty he had no meiins bevo;;d that but ".bat she had inhctited wealth: the income of which was suliiiient to justify nil this extravagance. At her h. me the story was that the secre tary bad made some lucky specula tions before he wcut into the cabinet, which accounted fir it all where the inheritance story would not ko down All this time ihev were selliu-' trad erships, and siendin(r the proeicd in this foolish way. There can be no doubt that the woman had the man completely under her thumb that fo infatuated was he with her that he would have stolen ten times the amount, had she desired it. The man w as doubtless honest, originally, but oh. hw weak? Th" merchams of New 1 oik sulh r severelv It this exposure. Jt is rumored that Mrs. l'.elknnp owes vast sums of money to the fashionable dry goods men and jewelers here, which, as the Hclkuaps have spent all their stealing-, they will lose. I UK EriIEMIC OF THE SFAMX. Malaria and ignorance of ventila tion will soon make .New York no (it place for white pe pie to live in. If h-ver and a'iie, dipiheria. scarlet fe ver and small-pox hold their own a ery few years longer as they are lining now, thecity w ill poon be osj untenable as Statea I.-laud, where rich people are deserting their villas, bccaue the place is so deadly with agues. Thism.'uih the fashionable epidemic is a malir it icflueri.a, which visits huinatih.n-l as it did horses two" year.- .;. The doctors call it by do fancy nai.ie, only "p'aia cold," aud the Madis-u Avenue pr scription is neither b-iladouua. nor "internal exhibition " aconite, or any other high sound. ug drug, but equally plain catnip tea, made doub ly strong, w hich is admiuistcred not more for the sake of breaking up the cold, by a good sweat, as for its val uable and recently discovered proper ties ia epiieting the nerves. Fancy a bowl of Lady Washington china breathing lbs soothing incense of balm tea, administered to an iutcrest- ing invalid wrapped in au a.:;ire blank - s..ii as velvet, aud yoU have the elegance of influenza. But for real nines 1 prefer the oh! style, a crack- d blue bowl, steeped in generations of teas, wnh a quart of deep brown 4a.u suienuij um, l0 oc tahen in iinee K"p, v gu ; me stoutest co:a fled affrighted at the thought of a second dose. But talk of ulain colds tne new variety succcssluiy com bine the horrors of neurulgia, rheu matism, lumbago, catarrh, lever and ague, and getting drunk, and one crawls out of an attack feeling like a cabinet officer just investigated. POLITICAL. The local politician of New Y ork are making a stir for Couklings n-m-iuatiou f r the IVesidemy, but it does not make much headway. There are many excelleut men in tile city w ho would be glad to Con kliug iu the Presidential chair, and there are a great many w ho would not. But there are a thousaud or more political bummers, who would support anybody whose friends w ill '"pui up,"' and this class are unfortu nately all for Coukliug, he being the Erst New Yorker mentioned f r the place. They are organizing "Con kling clubs," all over the city, and are making a great deal of noiVe, but I am happy to say that they all bave a hungry h ck. They are not getting the rations they expected, nor wiil they. Senator Coukling is a gentle man, and a pure man. He would of course like to be President 1 wouldn't miod it myself but he nev er did a dirty thing, and - he never fill. Ho will never pay bummers. he m ill never support a body of mer cenaries, nor will he use undue influ ence. Tbe bummerft rim nro chmst- ing Conkling at this time are doing it at meir own fvivna. they are getting sick. The supplies don't come, and thess fell ws never do anything at their own charges that is for any length of time. Con- -MUruuy meir zeal wiil very soo abate. Thef.ct.sNew York isn't cij .u4ioaio nave a caudidate. There are two or three different fac tions in tbe city, and they are mor tally afraid of oach other. They would all rather bare . a new man rather than haye any one who has evcr mixed in city or state politics. Tbe democracy are hardly any better off Tilden cannot get tbe undivided support of the party io tbe city, and for thau?"iel no.pne can. &o far as New" Tork is concerned it will not mke much of a fchow of influence in either convention. The liberals, ., 1,.,. i,.fr nf iliem. are wailinz for the highest bidder, but there are so few of them that no one considers them w. rib a bid. THE r.l SINESS OF THE WEEK. Ttie list of failures this week, foot up nearly one hundred, and they em irate almost all varieties of business. The biDusbed parties generally offer 2') cents on the dollar, that being the regular figure. So common have failures become, that they excite no more surprise. The oldest, strongest hou.-ci in the city are going, and no one knows to-day who is going to morrow. Kents are still sinking, and tbeneurerthe month of May ap proaches, the more the landlords tremble. Their expensive stores on Broadway are being vacated, and ap plications for rtieu) are as rare as hen's teeth. I know of one btore that four years ago was in demand at flS.UOU per year, that is now be ing occupied at $6,000, and the ten-, ajis are giving it up for they can gel a littler one at $4,000. Tbe truth is business men can hardly afTord to pay auy rent, for there is no proGt what ever ia business. The shrinkage io value is going on steadily, and no one can sec the end. Relief must come from some source, or bank ruptcy will be the rule, and solven cy the exception. New York is very Jck. THE Iliri'ODROME MEETIXtiS. Are stiil wouderlully tiled, and it is cs unfashionable not to go and hear Mr. Sankey sing as to hear Ti liens or Yon Hulow. or any other light of the musical or dramatic world 1 he Hippodrome is still packed ut mid-Jay and evening, and tbe relig ions movement is treated with tbe greatest respect by the papers. But a visit to tbe meetings convinces a candid person, that the reason of the treat audiences drawn tocretber is not Mr. Moody's earnestness, or Mr. iSaukcy's singing, of which he has grown as chary of late as a pet tenor in onera, but the number who take a Horiotis interest in religion. There are thousands of genuinely good people in tbe city, who believe that religion out weighs all other in terests, and are drawn to these meet ings, hoping for good. Thepopulari- ty ot Moody and fcankey in Great liritian is easily understood: it was their Americanism attracked the crowd, j'jst as anything distinctively American attracts English attention, hke the jubilee singers, Artemus Ward and Mark Twain, and Brete Hartc's stories, whose popularity abroad out runs that they have at home. One can imagine what, a con trast Mr. Moody's curt, utterly un conventional manner, his homely il lustrations, must have been to the formal EugH.su way of doing things, and it is no wonder he took the rath er heavy Britons by storm. Here, be can never make the same impres sion ou cultivated people that be did aiii-oau. 1 nc uig ciergy 01 -cw York sit up in the preacher's pen at the meetings, and laugh over Mr. Moody's apt hits, in the way of il lustration, as they would at excellent jokes, aud the evangelist runs on about salvation, very much in the way a Chicago business mau u'ks insurance, or railroads, with the same earnestness, but not a whit more feeling or reverence. His whole manner, is that of a finished auction eer, who is ready to knock down sal-1 vutiou to the highest bidder without reserve. THE I.AHOK MARKET. Carefully compiled tables show that almost one half of the skilled labor of the city is idle, and that wages for those in employment have been cut down nearly one-half. Tbe bric klayers, who two years ag were getting $ 1 TiO a day, are glad to Work now forl..0, while laborers who were firm in their demand for $3 00 are glad to get work at any price There is but very little building going op, and but very little repairing, and in regular manufacturing there is ab solute stagnation. It is a curious thing that piano making is the only trade w hich keens its hands all em ployed, and at old wages. Fianos arc luxuries, and it would seem that this trade would be the Crsi to fall off, but it is not so. 1 bat trade is just as brisk as ever. The charities are of course crowded with the hungry and naked, and tbe societies lor sup plying firing are taxed away beyond their capacity. ir tncre ever was a time when spring was anxiously looked for it is now. It is a blessing that the winter has been so mild But the look-out for the summer is dreary enough. A visit to the pnn- 1 cipul architects showed that scarcely anv buildinj was contemplated for .!, ,nsmnn- Benson and what lhe Uborcrs arc to do during the summer . js a (jUm-. Ther can live on less than in the winter, but they must have something and that something is vc-v : remote, I ! HOW THE KI'7!I AMI SF. THEMSELVES. While the poor are starving the rich are atnnsing themselves, as they always will. Tbe last form of fash ionable amusement is horseback par ties. Companies assemble at com fortable riding-schools, ladies and gentlemen, and train their horses to go through tbe figures of dances, precisely as though they were in a ball-room. Think of the Virginia reel on horseback! Yet tbey do it, and they "tag," just as they used to when they were children, and thir fathers were butchers and bakers. This latter game they play with their horses at full gallop, and so expert have riders become, that very few accidents are reported. It beats ! skating. i LENT I. . is upon us, and tbc fashionable Chris tians hare to change their base Tbey cannot show their fine feathers at the theatres, operas or parties, but they make it up at the churches. How devoutly they crowd the churches every morning, when they bave new clothes, and how sweetly pious they look, when they glance around and sec that tbey out-dress all their neighbors, and then tbe meet ings for charity, which are eminently proper. , How they complacently go in a sweet, simple costume that cost $1000 in Paris, and give $10 to re lieve the suHeriog poor at tbeirdoors! ' It there is anything utterly ab.-urd. it is toe observance ot Lent by a fashionable New York Christian la dy. They make tbe season of morti fication tbe time for the wildest possi ble extravagance. They exchange 1 lLe paid singers of the opera for; ' p.ii fci of tbe fasbiona the sinirers of tbe fashionable churches, and take revenue for the in feriority by piling more agony on their dree Carious world this. And yet these people all expect to get to heaven by-and-by. . PIETBO. AMCriBHTOIT. BY AS OLD HITNTEK. "Ah! Seaor Ingles, I see you're determined to defy our climate ! After tbe march that my husband led you through the woods ibis morning, one would have thought you'd have been glad of a siesta ; and here I 2nd you writing away like any lawyer. So speass, gliding out w ith the sup pleness of Spanish blood into the verandah in which I am seated, my charming hostess, Seuora Diaz, one of the most piquant little tropical beauties that Murillo ever dreamed of. "Well, really, senora, after all the wonders I've seen in this fairyland of yours, I had need write them down as fast as I Fee them, lest, as yuur proverbe says, one nail should drive out another." "Y'ou flatter our poor country, se n r, with the couuesy of your na tion. Uut as 1 see tbat you are put ting by your writing, I will task your gallantry so far as to beg your help in watering my flowers, for it is not easy for me, with my lame band, to manage that great watering pot I" "Be pleased to use my bands as those of rour slave, 6eoora, when and wherever you may need tbem. By-tbe-by, am I wrong in imagining that you promised me a story con nected w ith tbe lameing of tbe band of which you speak f I would not willingly be troublesome, but when you haye leisure" "With pleasure, scuor; it is very kind of you to interest yourself in such a trifle. As soon as tbe plants are watered. I shall have tbe honor of serving you a cup of coffee on the balcony ; and, then, if you are good enough to care to hear it, the story is quite at your service." And accordingly, ten mintues later, I find myself sitting in tbe verandah over a cui of such coffee as I have not tasted since leaving Arabia, with little L0I1U (Dolores), my hostess only daughter, and my especial pet, nestling at my side; while tbe seno- ra, deftly rolling up and lighting a paper cigarette, begins as follows: hen we first came here, senor, a good many years ago, the place was very different from wbai you see it. My husband had a grant of land from the government, which was glad to give away ground about here to any one who would take the trou ble to clear it; aud well it might! For in those days the juogle reached right down to the water's edge; and such a black, horrid tangle it looked of briars, bamboos, Spanish bayonet, wild fig, liana, pirijao, locust wood, aud w hat not, that I felt as if I dare not even iro a step into it for fear of being lost altogether. However, bit by bit, we began to get the ground into some sort of or der; but even when we bad cleared it, and begun to plant it, we had still plenty of enemies to fight against. Tbe ants w. re tbe worst ; tor, apart from :he havoc which tbey always make in a plantation, they have a way of running their galleries under the" whole surface, aud it breaks in just like tbe crust of a pie. There's a place a little to tbe uonn ot tnis, where you see a buge pit in tbe ground, full of bushes and wild griss, with here and there a few smoldering timbers, where a whole village sank at once, tbe foundatious having been fairly houeycombed by tbe ants! And thence comes our saying tbat Paruguay has two ene mies ' the wild Indians aud the ant Indians." However, luckily for us, there were no Indians about there, except tbe tame Indians, who behaved well enough, aud used to bring us food aud dried meat in exchange for kuiv- e.-J aud aguardiente. Aud as for the auts, what with poisoning tbem, and digging up their nests, aud flooding their galleries with boiling water, we managed to get the best of tbem at last, though even now tbey some limes make a foray upon us from tbe woods around. But after them came another pest that was far worse tbe nakes. I need hardly tell you, who have been through the forests your self, how they swarm there; and for a time 1 really gave myself up for lost. My husband used to call tbem "the tax gatherers," and, really they were quite as regular, not a day that we didn't find oue or two of tbem about the bouse. And once what f.ight I got! When Lolita was only a fe months old, my husband aud his men had goue out to their work one morning as usual, and I was busy in the bouse, with tbe child lying asleep on a mat at tbe otber end of the room, when, all at once, I caught sight of a mou-e'sskin on the floor, with the body sucked clean out of it, like an orange. I knew at once tbat there must be a snake somewhere about, for they're mighty fond of mice, and that's just the way they I deal with them; but, look as I might 1 could see no suake anywhere, till suddenly the thought struck me, could it be under tbe child's mat? As gently as I could, I lifted up one corner, and there it was. tbe long, slimy, green aud yellow beast, curled snugly up, and fast asleep. 1 knew that I could d- nothing with it my self, for it was a sort that you can only kill by shooting tbem ; so I ran out in tbe courtyard, and, luckily, the first thing I saw was our hunter Jose, with bis gun on his shoulder. I called biin in at oace, and he set tled the beast with a charge of small shot. However, as tbe work went on, and we got more and more ground cleared, our visitors began to forsake us ; for snakes must have a thick cover to burrow iu, and, when that's taken awuy from them tbey soon slink off. So tben I began tc hope thai we were fairly at tbe end of our troubles; but we weren't we were only at the beginning of tbem. I don't know how it was perhaps it may have been tbat (as tbe pro. verb says) everything uiust have its turn but, somehow, all through our troubles with tbe ants, and serpents, the bigger beasts bad never disturb ed us at ill ; but now, just as we were beginning to have a little peace from our other plagues, the fiur footed gentlemen began to come on tbe stage at last. Oue moruing. just as we were at breakfast, in came one of our vaqueros with lhe news that our cattle, while feeding among the long grass on tbe other side of the river, bad been attacked by a jaguar, and one of tbem killed. The fellow who bad brought ibe news bad bad to run for bis life, and would hardly have escaped had there not lieen a fat ox ready at baud instead. As it was, be looked so thoroughly fright eced that it made us all rather seri ous. However, a week passed with out any fresh alarm, and we we; 3 be ginning to get over it, when sudden ly in came three or four Iudiaos io a great flurry to tell us tbat a buge jaguar bad broken into their encamp- oieut, aud killed a woman and one of their dogs. When nfy husband heard tbe story be made sure tbat it as tbe same beast tbat bad fallen upon our cattle ; for tbey described it as being of a yery strange color, far lighter than any that bad ever been seen it those parts before, and from that they bad nicknamed it the 'Pale Death." So then we ail thought itjull lime to do something; aud my husband called his men to gether to go out and huut it down. I remember that morning well, though it be a year ag3 tbe day after to-morrow. Away tbey went merri ly enoogb, every man with bis gun and hunting knife, and M .ro, ihe blood bouud, aloug with tbem. My husband turned aud kissed bis baud to me just as tbey entered the wood, and then they were gone ! When I fouud myself all alone io the house with Lolita, and thought of what might happen if they met this horrible beast, I was so frighten ed tbat (although I had no thought of any cbauce of danger to myself) I wasn't satisfied till I had shut aud barred every door in ibe bouse; aud then I caiue aud sat down in tbe drawing room, and took Lolita in my lap, aud tried to tell her a story. Suddenly I beasd a scrapiug along the roof, aud tbeu a dull tbump like the fall of something heavy ! Aux ious and nervous as I was, it gave me a terrible start, though I little dreamt what it was But tbe next momeut came a sound just overhead that I could not mistake a long hoarse, roar, that I bad beard many a time in the forest at night, aud never beard without feeling my heart stand still. Tben fie thought struck me "Oh, Heaven; the jaguar." I shall never forget tbat moment! For ooe minute I was quite sick and helpless, as if all the life bad been struek out of me at one blow ; and tben a thought flashed upon me. There was no keeping tbe jaguar out, for most of the doorways were only hung with eurtains; but in the store room cloe by there was a huge wooden corn chest, nearly empty, and big enough to bold six or seven people at once. If Lolita and I could only get in there we might yet be saved ! I snntcbed up the child, ran with her into the storercom, and crouched down in tbe chest. Unluckily ii clos ed with a spring lock, that 1 had to keep tbe lid slightly open wun my left hand, to avoid being shut dowu and stifled outright; but it bad an overlapping edge several inches long which quite covered my liugers. I was not a moment loo soon. Hardly bad I got fairly settled in my hiding place, when I beard the great claws scraping the floor, and tbe hungry sniff as the jaguar quested bout in search of tood. tie came straight to the chest, aud there stop-, ped short a moment, as if su.-peetiugi trap. Tbeu be put his neaa ciosu to tbe narrow opening, so that I could feel bis hot breath on my face, snuff ed once or twice t satisfy hnusejf. and then tried to force the lid up wuh' bis paw; but, thank God, the great paw wouu not go into mat nine chink! All he could do was to get his tongue in aud lick my fingers, mak ing them bleed as if they had beeu rasped with a saw. And then, w hat wi'b tbe taste of blood, and whit with hearing Lolita crying inside. bis fury was rous.id, and he began to roar, not an honest, deoinoutbed u roar, but a sharp, snarling yell. tbat made my Idood run cold. Ugh ! I can t think bow I didu t die out right, but tb- touch of Loliia's little arm. cliugiug round my neck, seemed to eive me courage. But the worst was r-till to come. Finding that he ci-uld uot reach me from below, be sprang on the top of the chest, crusbiug my haud between the lid and the upper edge. Tben I thought all was over, and gave a scream that made tbe whole house ring. My scream was answered by a sound tbat made my heart leap the distant cry of a bloodhound I Tbe jaguar heard it, too, for he leaped down and stood listening for a mo ment, and then ran to the door, as if to escape. There it wa3 again much nearer and with it the voices of men calling to each other. They were coming back ! Meanwhile the jaguar seemed to get bewildered, and ran wildly up and dowu the inner gallery. Suddenly there came a loud shout at one of the windows, and then two shots and a frightful yell ; and tben my husband's voice, strained to its loudest: "Cuchita! Where are you ?" I just managed to crall to the door and let him in, and tben I fainted outright. Tbey told me afterwards tbat our bloodbonnd bad struck tbe trail of tbe jaguar leading straight toward the bouse; and then tbey all set off to run like madmen, fearing some barm to me. My husband and Jose distanced the rest, and came up just in time to shoot the beast hrough the window. As for my hand, it was so crushed that I couldn't stir a joint of it for weeks after. The Indians doctored it for me, and they tell me I shali have the use of it again by-and-bve: but I Jou't need tbat to reiniud use of that day. If I live a thousand vears, I shall uever forget it. How Butler la Tainted. Winter and spriog butler is often verv much iuiuied in flavor bv allow- inttcows to eat ihe litter from horse siables. Cows are not utifreqieutly very fond of this li'ter, tboub it i- impregnateU wun liquid manure from tbe horses, and if allowed ihey eat it greedily ; and tbe effect is ibat their milk aud buuer will be tainted with the taste of this kind of food, in the same way hat tbe flav is injured by eating turnips, hut, to more disagreeable degree. If litter is alio ed to be eaten, it bbould ou ly be given to cattle not in milk, aud on no account sbonld milch cows be allowed to consume otber than tbe sweetest and purest food. Very nice butter makers are sometimes at a loss to account for stable taints in butter, especially when extraordinary pre cautious bave been taken to bave the milking done in tbe most perfect in it u ner, and so on in all tbe processes of handling tbe milk until the butter is packed tor market. Still the butter has a disagreeable taint, and the cause often conies from allowing the' cows, when turned out to water aud exercise, to feed about tbc h irse sta ble, when tbey consume all the litter which, on account of its being soak ed witb liquid niaunre, is cast out of the stable. Rural Sew Yorker. He entered a car door.

Tbe brake man .ut his left eye, and sain he locked the door so the Ore couldn't get out. Ad English revivalist slid down the banister of bis pulpit to show bow people went on backsliding. The Turkey While yisiting a poultry show at Tamaqu-, Pa., a saort time since, our atteuiion was drawn to some fi ie large "Wild Turkeys." Tbe cock1 bird iu this peu was the haud-ome t we ever saw. Iu sv.umetry be set til ed lo be perfect, while his plumage t was simply superb. lie w as a three- j year old bird, but showed none ofj tbe symptons of age or debility. This pair of birds made sueh an impression ou us that we hunted up ibe exhibitor to learn ILeir bistry. He -&id this cock w as batched from au egg found ia a w ild hen's uesi iu the mountains, and was.raised on the frm. But since he w as a year old, i be aud his mates take to the moun tain wheu spring arrives, and remain away till autumn, when they return with fiue flocks of young ones, which they have raised without care or feed fp'iu the owutr. This statement was something of a surprise to us. In our community the youug turkey are carefully hunt ed up, aud "brought home aud fed every day until tbey bave attaiued some size. This is perhaps necessa ry in a densely populated agricultur al district ; but those semi-wild tur keys were certainly as fine as any w e ba-ve seen any w here. We weigh ed one gobbler," which turned tbe scale at thirty-two pounds, and uuui bers of tbem weighicg from twnuty iwo to twenty-eight pounds each. As table birds" they were equal to auy wc ever tried. Many of our readers who live in wooded niouut antous districts, si OJld take a hint from ibis and see what ihey can do in turkey raising. As a table fowl, no one of our domestic birds is equal to-a good turkey. They may be rais ed in a roomy place at a small ex pense, and always commaud a fair price iu tbe market Some farmers object to having tur kevs roamiug over their fields before the harvest is gathered, but the objec tion is groundless. They really do no injury to the grain crops, w hile they consume innumerable insects of all kinds, which would be detrimen tal to the farmers interests. It is true a flock will be destructive to a field of buckwheat, if they find it ; hut even here the loss is not great, as it is marketed iu the shape of poultry in.-teud of flour. To give some idea of the turkey busiucss, it may bo stated that the anuual product of Bucks county Pa., alone, is over $200,000 w orth. This may stagger some readers who have giveu tbe subject no attention ; but w hen it is known that there are faix thousaud farms iu the county, and tuikevs are raised on nearly all of them, lhe figures will not be .-.urpris-iiiii. Practical Farmer. iicce full of lnn. A goose has perhaps the keenest appreciation ot humor of any uuiili il, unless it be her arcli-euem. lhe f.'X The writer ouce saw iu a lune grai-sy paUdock some eigbl or ten lai and healthy pigs aud half a score of geese. From this paddock a narrow, open gate gave eutrauco into the farm yard, aud as eveuing drew on, the geese ra iged themselves in a row uear this Tbermopyhe. Obviously, supper-time was approaching and tbe pigs wished to returu borne to their troughs. Equally clearly tbe geee had giveu eacu oiljer the word uol to let theiu pass through the gales w h.ch they guarded without payiug loll. First tbere came up a jolly good humored little pig, w ho trolled ebeei fully along wiib a eouli deuce which ought to bave disarmed criti cism, till no came auioug tue geese. Then, with a cacKie aud a scream, every uecK was s re.cneu io gel a bite ai him, aud squealing ana yel ling, lhe poor liiile porker ran the gauntlet. 1 be same tale befell six orseveu more of his breiureu in suc cession, each betrayed iucreasiug irepidatiou, as be approached the fatal pass and made a boll through tbe corps de fjardc of geese, whose chattering screeches ot delight were almost u jdisiinguisbcd from bumau laughter. At lasl tbe biggei pig of the oariv brought up the rear. He w as a pinked fleshed, clean youo fellow, with fat limbs aud sides, aud his ears were cocked, and tail sharp ly twisted in the intelligent wide awake manner which so completely distinguishes tbe intellectual pig from the mere swiue multitude. Wiib a loud grunt of defiance this brave beast charged through the flock of geese, aud actually almost gaiued the gate, when a large gray goose made one grab at his fat ham, caught up the skin in a bunch and gave it a tremendous pinch with her red beak. Needless lo say tbe air was rent witb soueals of atrony of the injured pig and the ecstatic pteans of the flock of geese in chorus, r ronj ibe order in which tbe transaction took place we derive the impressiou that a similar game of prisoner's base probably formed the entertainmeut of the geese every evening. trances I'uirer Cobb. Manure for Orana. No crop srets less aitcution than trass. If manured at ull. it is ouly incidentally wun some otber crop raielv for itself ilone. Corn, wheat and barley get the manure, aud when ? ceded, the3ouog clovtr takes what is lefi. Afier ibis, if the field be pas tured, the dropuiugs of animals, left in lumps over the field are all that ibe lauds get till ihey are plowed aain. I bis is considered improv ing the soil; aud it is. .No matter bow mismanaged, clover is a beuefit, aud hatever el.-e he mav do, tbe farmer who sows aud crows clover, is making his farm better. Wbat then might nut the result be if the same care were taken of ibe clover field as of tuber crop-? It does not ined cultivation; tbe louit deep r ach ing roots mellow and nulverize the soil as nothing else can. If tbe clover g-ows tbrifiily, the top acts a-i a mulch, shading tbe ground and keeping it moist. A crop of two tons or more of clover, whether plowed uuder or cut for bay, can bardly fail to leave tbe soil better than it was before. It should be tbe farmers aim to crow tbe largest pos sible crops of clover. A slight dress ing id gypsum oue hundred pouuds per acre in early spriug often pro duces wonderful results. -But if a farmer has a little well rotted ma nure, the scrapings of barn-yards, fad is the time to apply it. Clover is often iujured by freeziug and thaw ing winters, and a very slight cover ing of manure will afford a great deal of protection. Rich earth from tbe corner of feuces, is well worth drawing a short distance on youug clovi r, provided the ground is hard and firm. If the field is not to be mowed next season, coarse manure can be used. Prairie Farmer. A profane young pereon describ iugtbe looks oT a newly arrived M.

She is short ly to be married to tbe Prince of Ueiiss, aud the firm orGoraud & Co,, has bad the h'.uor of prepiriuir tbe In idal ouitit of ber royal highness. She has tw elve dozen each of all the smaller articles of lingerie aud six dozen of larger pieces, fall tbe Guest cambric, ouly varying iu the styles of their puffs aud lucks, their laces or embroidery. These undergar ments alone cost $13,000. Then she has SO dresses and 25 bonnets, and many gloves, fans, cloaks, shawls, and other pretty trifles, the laces in particular are exquisite iu Dueuess aud design. Oue dinuer dress palest crepe do Chine was decorated with three hood flounces of tbe finest aud costliest Yalencieunes, which crossed lhe breast transversely; the back of tbe dress was dtaw n in two immense pads, and the cuirass corsage, open en c(eur, was trimmed with narrow lace to match the flounces. Another dress of pale lilac crepe de Chine was trimmed with equally Gne aud beauti ful poiut Ducbesse. A garnet vel vet dress was decorated with narrow point d'Alencon, of the greatest beauty aud Guentss, the wedding dress was in while satin. The front of the skirt was covered with three wide flounces of magnificent point aguille (sometimes erroneously call ed point de Yeuise), the second richest of modern laces, tbc richest being of course the point d'Alencon. These flounces were pot straight round the skirt, simply on, iu the old fashioned way. An immense court train, fully three yards long, was at tached to the skirt. It was bordered all round with the rows of lace sepa rated by a narrow quilling of satin The corsage, was, as usual open en cwur, with balf-loug sleeves, and was trimmed with lace, its dress ot pale, rose colored silk was decorated wiib flounces aud trimming of point applique, which looked very ordinary in comparison w ith the splendors of tho ricber laces. TberA were a'so dresses trimmed n ilh antique laces, which had de scended to the onde iroru some of ber royal ancestors curious, web like fabrics, but lacking one cob tbe daiuty beauty of artistic desigu w hich marks tbe laces of the present day. Tbe Costliest aud most superb article in the trousseau was display ed ou a table iu the centre of the room. Ji was a tuuic or overskiri of the royal poiut d'Aleucon of incom parable liueuess aud beauty of de sigu. 1 his fabric had employed ten woi k iiii-ii for eight years, aud had cosi $10,000. Ibe pattern was dahlias, torgetme-uols aud ferus groojied with marvelous grace aud eucirled by a dainty trace iy of branch ing tendrils, delioate as frost work upon tbe window pane. Tbe bride's traveliug dress was of stamped black velvet, trimmed wuh bands of Hus sion sable, surmounted by a black velvet toque also trimmed with fur, aud with a siugle biid with dove- colorcd aud golden-green plumage. The cost of the whole trousseau had amounted to $100,000. For the bride's mother, the Grand Duchess of Saxe- Weimer, a ruby vel vet dresrf had beeu prepared covered almost entirely with the real poiut de Yeuise, that autique lace of cardinals aud convents, the secret of whose manufacture is lost. What these broad flounces, delicate as carvings in ivory, might be worth I did not aitempi to surmise. A court dress made for the Grand Duchess was shown; the traiu was of green satin, bordered with a baud of embroidery iu silver, the threads of which, being of pure metal, had resisted the ac uou ot time, tor this train bad beeu a gift to the lady from ber godmother, one of lhe late Empresses of Russia.

Many experiments have been in stituted to settle this matter and gen erally ttey prove this fact tbat too much seed is used. A small experi ment suffices for this time. Oa a plot of good soil, all alike, 100 bills were planted in trills, of one eye each, cut from medium sized potatoes. An other row by the side, of sme num ber of two eyes; another of three; tben another of one-half, and lastly, a row of a whole one. " The whole plot was treated exactly alike. At digging, the row of one eje had tbe largest number of large potatoes ; tbe row of two eyes, the greatest number of merchantable one's; while the row of whole ones, had the least. The second row yielded nearly two bush els the most. 1 It is said that there is confined in a Paris mad house a printer whose lunacy takes a mild though curious form.
