BT JKAS MIDBIXMASS. " Is she not lovely, Ratherfanl V A lover's enthusiasm spoke in the ear nest tones, shone in the han isome ryes of the young man who ake4 the ques tion in such manner aa though be dee ru ed an answer unnecessary, yet his quick ears detected a something In the reply "Very lovely which rsoseii him to start and tarn to look ia his companion's face. Tbe two friends were cemented by a bond of years, aud as they were slowly sauntering np tbe carefully ordered laws of Mr. Howard's country seat, it was of his daughter, and of the betrothed of the young man, of whom they spoke. She stood awaiting their approach, s smile of welcome lighting bert eyes, a vision of youth and happiness 5 yet Percy Ruther ford had betrayed, even in assent to Clarence roomer's eager question, that lie felt his cboicj might not have been a wise one. "Sheua mere child, Clarence, who, it seems to me," he continued, is as yet scarcely fit to battle with the realities cf life. It seems hard that she should not yet be left in tbe ruidst of her birds and flowers." u Ah, but shall I not give her birds of brighter plumaee, flowers of fairer boe ?; No shadow shall cross my darling's path , no chill win U pierce through the cloak of protecting love in which I shall enwrap her. I" ... But a merry htngh and musical tones interrupted him, as tbe young girl came forward to greet them and playfully chide them with their very slow ap proach. Only seventeen summers have left their; faint impress upon Fay Howard's brow and that the new life on whoe threshold she stands is to bring responsibilities and cares upon her shoulders is a thought she has never harbored. In one more week she is to be tbe bride of the man on whose arm she leens. So the week passed the anal week of the old life and she stands at last, clad in white robes, with the sun beams crown ing the young, Ciir. head, in the old church, by Clarence Somer's side, and uttered, with scarce a thought of their BoUmn meaning, the worij which bind them together for aye. Into the home which Clara nee has pre. pared for her she enters with happy feet, seeing only on every side evidences of her husband's indulgent love in the ap pointments taste and wealth have com bined to give hir. So a year jiasses, a bright, happy year, and she notesnot that on her bus! land's brow are lines which a. few months sgo were not there ; that he often avoids gay scenes, pleading (some excuse, bnt never letting her share the solitary vigil at which she sometimes wonders ; but ere her wonderment finds words it is for gotten. Then comes the crash, the knowledge, sudden and overwhelming, that her hus band is a bank nipt. Pitying friends g-tther round his wife, and to their consoling promises that still her Cither's home Uopen to. receive her, where she shall not miss the comforts which have grown necessities, she yields with unthinking consent . It seems so hard that all should be swept from her, and so, with self-pity only at her heart, Clarence resigns her nntil he can again win health and for tune. A small clerkship had been offered him in a distant town, with a promise of ulti mate partnership. Could he wk Fay to share such a life ? S 1 he g.es alone, nev er shrinking from the daily trials which he meets, and treasuring with reverent care the short notes which Fay sends, filled with hopes that he soon may give her back her home, while he glances round tbe meagerly furnished room which he dignities by that sacred title, and thinks how incongruous would be her radiant presence there, and yet, ah, how sweet to the heart which sometimes shrinks, dismayed . at its own loneli ness !. It is like s gleam of sunshine when on; day he finds himself discovered by Percy Rutherford, and bis greeting of his old friend is frank and cordial. "Unfortunately, old fellow," he says, with a half sigh, " I can only give you half s welcome, since Fay cannot share it. I con'd not, of coarse, ask her into my exi!e " " Did she not with it T "Poor little girl! I think she scarcely knew what she wished, Tite crh was so sadden and overwhelrui-g. Every body sd vised that she should stay ; and L, too, couldnot be so selfish aa to with her with me." " What God hath joined together let no man put asunder." Solemn words, Clarence, solemly spoken. They and yoa and she are wrong. Where is s woman's place, if n A by her husband's aide ? Yoa said truly, on that day, yon may remem ber, that birds of a brighter plumage, and flowers of fairer boe, should be her lot ; and so, when the flowers faded, and the birds shed their radiant covering, yoa put her from yon and went jforth alone. She is selfish only in her thought lessness. Show her that yoa miss and need her, and yon will End the true woman-heart spring into life." But Clarence shook his head, and Per cy felt he could say no more. Bat when, a month later, be stood in Mr. Howard's brilliantly-lighted parlors, everywhere around him evidence of luxurious wealth, and saw tbe daughter of the house with her rmile as free, ber laughter as joyous as though her heart had never known a care, he wondemf if there were aught beneath that smiling surface which coold tuni'from the altar of worldliness st which it seemed to offer itself a living sacrifice. If there was bo one else to do it, he would make one appeal to tbe wife and the woman. A half hoar later be rose to find ber and carry out tbe new-born resolution. He bad not long to seek. Approaching him, her graceful form and beauty every where conspicuous, be soon descried her, and when he asked a few momenta of ber time, she gave them willingly. The witchery of her loveliness con quered even bis sterner thoughts, and pity for ber youth and tbe counsels she bad, perhaps snwittiagly, followed, made nif- OCTOBER 80,1889 his vote low and tender as he addressed her. " Did yoa know I had seen Clarence lately, Mrs. Somers V A flash of esgerness passed over her face at mention of his name. " I could but picture the contrast," he continued, "between the happiness on vour face and tbe sad loneliness written upon bis "I am here by my husband's wish. Mr. Rutherford," bhe interrupted, " and I could hardly be so ungrateful to the kind friends who try to brighten ray life, as to repay them with sorrowful looks or frowns. As soon as Clarence desires it, I will rejoin him." " Will yon let me tell yoa a little story, Mrs. Somers a story of a man young and full of hope as Clarence was but little more than a year ago, on whose footsteps misfortune too quickly followed and over took him, and laid her cruel mark upon his brow who bail stood, even as yoa nave stood, berore uoo s aitar, with one who promised tocheri.su him until death, but who construed that phrase as yoa have done ; and when the amiles of the world were converted into frowns, when the sunshine was obscured by cloud, when his heart, sore and braised, needed the tender touch of a woman's hand, lo 1 she bad fled from the darkness and the gloom which threatened to o'ershadow her ; and he was too brave, too generous to call her back. Cut little by little life changed. Almost without his knowledge, his old faith in woman's love and con stancy failed him ; he grew cynical, his frank nature reserved, until, in despera tion, he soughtscenes and associates from which once he would have shrunk." " Tell me no more," Fay interrupted. " I can catch the meaning of the story you have told. Oh, Mr. Ratherford, have I indeed been so cruel and so heartless? If Clarence would but let me, I would rather share his life - than all else on earth T " Do yoa mean that T" "Indeed, indeed I do! Gly persuade my father to give bis consent, and I will go to him." fehow him yoa are earnest in your de sire, and he will not withhold it : and as lor Clarence, he will not ask. His wife shall go to Lim nnsought ; and see if his arms are not wide open to receive yoa." A week later, and Fay Somers stood in the room which her husband called home. She had not expected elegance, but her heart shrank as she gazed round ber. It seemed strange ar.d new for the dainty fingers to busy, themselves in the task of bringing a look of comfort to the cheerless place, to place fresh flowers here snd there, to. re-arrange and restore order ; but when it was over, and she surveyed her work, she felt a thrill of pride and pleasure new and keen, and sat down aitha flush of expectation to await his coming, who little knew what fairy sat by his hearthstone. At last she heard a key in the door be low ; but surely those steps, slow and half listless, were not his, and she sank back in the chair from w hich she had half risen, chilled and disappointed. But at the door they pause ; it opens, and Clarence stands upon the threshold with wide-staring eyes at the apparition con fronting him. " Clarence !" she exclaims, in glad, ringing tones, and springs into bis arms, which open wonderingiy to receive her, and into which she fled as a bird to ius nest. -Thank God ! Thank God !" So the sentences fall from bis white lips, while ber little band brushes back the hair from his brow, now so full of lines ; and ever and anon the young lios set their seal upon i'. She bends again. tokUs his mouth, but he holds her buck, as he aiy, : " I cannot take your kiss, Fay, until I tell yoa from what yoa have saved me. I bad grown hard and desperate. L heard that yoa weregiy and happy ; that you were admired by others ; and so. Fay, I thought to put an end to all this misery, this wretchedness of living, and no longer to hamper your lyonng life with mine ; I forgot there was a God. and lo ! I found an angel sent by Him, waiting and watching for me. Fay, dar ling, tan yoa forgive me? Can you kUu lips w hich have sinned V -"Ah, Clarence, your every word but stabs my heart with its own ud worthi ness ; never, never again will we st wrong our marriage vow ; and wliate'er Fate has in store for us, we will meet ana brave it hand in baud." So courage and hope came back to Clarence Somer's heart, and fortune wa not long in following. But in year hich follow, when children's voices fiU their bappy borne, one bright, sunny faced boy, the eldest of the three, seems, somewhat dearer to the parents' hearts. They call him Percy, and with every ut terance of the name is wafted the recol lection of the man who, by bis brave, outspoken counsel, bad restored happi ness to two hearts. Kill the Little Ones. If it costs seventy-five cents a year to keep a hen, is it of so account whether she pays a profit, or i a bill of expense ? Tbe fact is we are sot realizing as we ought, because there are bens that do not. return enough to pay their keeping. Th total production of the flock does not tell the story of individual merit.

Better by far reduce the flock to fifty and secure an average of one bund red and twenty eggs than to keep fifty more that do not pay the feed bill, and load tbe re mainder. Even though tbe average be above the co line, there is need of weed ing out tbe poor ones, that in saving of food there may be greater profit. It is ia the study of individual merit that the most is to be realized in the year before as. It is by getting rid of the poorer hens that one makes money in the busi ness. This is not a difficult task. A lit tle watchfulness will soon tell the story of merit, and the saving will pay well for time and trouble.

Eulogy of Chaolain McCook Oo more impressive military funeral has taken place since they placed the he ro of Appomattox in the tomb than that of Generel John F. Hart ran ft in Norris town Monday. The Major General of the National Guard was buried with full military honors, and the last scene was like so many in his career heroic. With salvos of artillery, volley after volley of musketry and with the bells tolling and thousands of tbe bravest men in the state standing about as mourners, they laid bis body to its tranquil rest ia Montgomery Cemetery, which is ia itself a little Get tysburg, not only forn its soldier graves, bnt in its striking hillocks and undula tions, many of them marked with memo rial monuments. VBTEAASS AND StTlONAL OCARD. The funeral escort on the part of the State National Guard, of which he was the commanding officer, was the regular one for a major general a squadron of cavalry, a baitery of artillery and a regi ment of irjfantry ; but this representation had more than an ordinary interest and significance, as every one of the organiza tions in line had been in touch with him in some way, and some of them contain ed men who bail faced death with him in war's stern alarms. AMONG HIS NEIGHBORS. His native town looked like a city of the dead, with all its public buildings, hundreds of private residences and even the street cars and vehicles dropped in mourning. There were probably five or six thous and men, mostly uniformed, in tbe pro cession that accompanied bis body to its reeling place in Montgomery Cemetery, insight of the tomb of that other hero, Geseral Hancock. In it wfre the pres ent and three past Governors and hun dreds of the most distinguished men of the state. TUE FAMILY'S FAUEWELU In the full uniform of a major general, the body, looking wonderfully lifelike, Teposed during tbe morning in the house where he died. Few intruded upon the privacy of that leave-taking and last sad ceremony in which the relatives of the dead General, including his aged and still well-preserved mother, looked finally upon his face. The shatters were closed and the subdued lights and the soft odor of dying autumn roses in tbe multitude of floral memorials were all in keeping with the melancholy and impressive scene aa the black-robed figures, woine of them needing support, passed before the bier. Mrs. Ilartranft showed evidences of the trying ftrdeal, and the youngest danghter, Miss Annie Hartranft, who j was very close to her father and his con stant companion, at home, was much prostrated, so much so that 't was at one time doubtful if she wo aid be able to at tend tbe funeraL Miss Marian Hart ranft, the eldest daughter, bore ber?e!f like a heroine, and has since ber father's death attended to all the correspondent:); and arrangements on the part of the fam ily that were necessary for the funeral. A venerable looking gentleman who stood among the mourners was Abram Hartranft, an uncle of the dead General, now over 70 years of ae. The Episcopal burial service was read by the Rev. T. W. Davidson, of Phila delphia, and this was the only service ceremony at the bouse. At its close, with an appropriate military escort, the body was removed from the bouse to the catafalque in the Court House, where tbe funeral oration took place. TII8 OK.4TIOS. Complete stillne reigned in the great crowded, black-draped apartment when the Rev. Dr. McCook, chaplain of tbe Second Iiegiment, entered and wi'h hands out st;u.-bed to where the body of the dead (receral lay before him be gan the faneral oration : The foremost hero of the Common wealth sleeps in death before us. The statT of oifiee is dropped, the sword of power sheathed, the voice of command hushed. Affection kindles no kindly warmth in that cold heart; friendship, philanthropy, the love of liberty stir co generous action in that br a I bosom the cheeks flush no longer with the ardor of patriotism ; the fire of batiles shall never again flash from th ee closed eyes. And yet, bnt yesterday he moved among us an embodiment of physical beauty and manly vigor. Strange mys tery this tbe transition from life to death, from the sphere of action in which onr years have been spent to a sphere of being untried, though not wholly un known. Thus it befalls that we are here to-day, fellow-citizens, comrades, companions, friends, kinsmen, jo honor the memory of the dead and consign his bo ly lo the tomb. Of the military snd civil career of Gen eral Hartranft, others more competent to such service have spoken in detail, or will speak hereafter. To-day it is only permitted as to catch a fleeting view of his life and character. - ' THE BSEM ABB DCJIT. His character was one which comman ded universal respect and well nigh uni versal affection. He was reticent t all except his intimate friends, but to them he uocovered his heart with the freedom ofabiy. Men who did not know h m counted him cold and reserved. Reserv ed he certainly was, for he was a man of immeasurable modesty and shrank within himself, not becane he under estimated others, bat rather underesti mated himself. He was a silent man, but cold be was not. Tbe mountain is si lent as it lifts its majestic outlines, forest crowned against the horizon. Bnt the mantle ot verdure that waves above it and the green turf that covers its base and gives fertility to the foothills and fat ness to its valleys clothed with corn, I are testimonies that the generous warmth of nature throbs within the mountain's bo som. Great men are often silent men. Thrr very grestness often makes them solitary. The people themselves have set the.n apart, and the sense of that annointing to dignity and power pats metes sad bounds about them. Thus nature and station alike combined to make bim seem reserved.

He was a reverent man- He came of s stock noted for its piety a star iy (Jer man eTfement that has entered into the vital streams of our Couimoowewlth and enriched its life with parity, sulMity and thrift. They were not only pinos, but pietists representatives of a mystical and gentle devoutness. He was not an enthusiast in religion, bnt he was a be liever. He took a strong historical inter est in his German ancestors, yet every religious organization had his sympathy. His catholicity was dominant in religious views and he was too broad a soii to be a bigot. He was often a worshiper with the church to which I minister and the regiment whose chaplaincy I Near, and he reverently heard the Won!, whether in sanctuary or on tented field. His practical Christianity was express ed by the philanthropic iuterest which he felt in the State institution at Norri- town, of whose trustees he was the pre siding officer. His great ability, l is tune, his strength, he generously and freely rave to the duties of that position, and th interest which he felt in the unfort unates who were the subjects of his con cern proved that in practical religion his heart was right with God. No doubt be had his faults, and who has not? To err is human snd no one more read ly than he would have acknowledged his errors. But among the men who have Iwen con spicuous in military and civil life there are few who lave carried themselves with snch virtuous intent and behavior as did this noble hero and standard bearer of the people. His was a transparent soul. Honors never marred his simplicity and he was too great to be dwarfed by misfortune. His silence was the reserve of modesty and power, not of arrogance or pride. Guiltless as a child, he was a born king in dignity. He was as open as l eaven's sunlight to the lowliest, bnt none dared to presume upon rank or fortune to speak unworthy words in his presence. His temper was as kind and his heart as coy and gentle as a maiden's ; but in the no ble rage of battle his stalwart frame swept throuifh the thickest fight like some Olympian divinity. His sword, one of the first to be drawn and last to be sheathed, waved amidet the clonds of battle with untarnished honor. Daunt less, bold, persistent in maintaining the interests of his country and Common wealth, he shrank to the verge of timid ity when his own interests were at stake. Great in warfare, he excelled also in civil life. Twice the orJained magis trate of a great commonwealth, he so bore himself in the ordinary details of government in the extraordinary respon sibilities of the Centennial year that neither the office Hor fliCThaH" suffered discredit. He was not rich, but no temp tations of opportunity or necessity could swerve him from his high integrity, and his hands were not besmirched with il licit gain. After a life spent in enriching this Nation and State he lies there as he died, a poor man. He loved his fellow-men snd tie phi lanthropy covered the most nnfertanate of our race, the indigent insane. He served God and bowed at the Cross of Christ, and though without profession or pretence be followed afar off, yet the light of the redeeming love guided his spirit toward the everlast.ng rest. Quiet sits upon that noble frame so lately the field of life's conflicting hopes and fears, joys and p:tin. The tattle is over. Night falls upon the scene. The bugles of God hsve blown : "L'gbtsout." Henceforth the bugles of war shall sound for hi:n the reveille in vain. Salvos of artillery cannot roase him. nor the voice of whispered lovj break his slumVr. They tell us he Is dead. Dead ? No ; such spirits never die! Their "echoes roll from soul to soul and grow forever." Na ture knows no such waste as tht. Tbe battle of this lire ends not in defeat but victory. He sleeps npon the field, our old commander and companion sleeps. But, hark! Lbten against thethi.i veil of futurity and yoa shill hear the ani?!s of God sounding the reveille of eternal morcin? from the camping grounds of immortals. Comrades, companions, oars is a scant generation. Thinned by exigencies, of war, the race of men wh wa?l hitl against armed rebellion numbers fewer than it w old have done had our rr.rly manhood fallen upon days of pein-e. The soldier of the Republic do nnt live oat their full days. Why? The tnsetrsin of thoee foor years of war still is felt. They fall. Men say they have died of this or thatdifes.se; but traced h-.tckwar l along tbe line, it shall be found that in many cases the ""'ed indirectly from the hurts of war. The seeds of prerua'ure decay therj and then were so'. Men like Grant, Sheridan, Meade, Thomas, McCIellan, Hancock, Hartranft. died in the very prime of mature manhood. They should h.ve lived longer and long er, they would have lived had not the inevitable shocks of the terrible ordeal of war weakened their vital forces. The ranks of veterans grow thinner. Their locks are grizzled, their forms be gin to stoop. Their steps have less elas ticity, their eyes less fire. They were veterans twenty-five years sgo by the measure of war service. They are veter ans to-day by the march of tin e. The torn and battle-frayed banners of the Republic will abide for years w iih little change, but ibe men who advanced thera along the line of victory wilt see the fragments of their lines fray thinner and weaker as tbe days go by. We wait but a little while. The long roll aorn shall beat for the last battle. And "there is no discharge ia that war." To meet the frien.ls of camp sad field, of fight and forar, cf eatnp-fire and re union, of commandery and post ; to feel again the touch of our beloved ones and bear the ruelody of their tender voices, ah ! that is a vision to surprise aa old soldier to nobler living, Sneer t rest and loftier hope. So let it b, snd thus by preserving pore snd bright the honor and name of the friends that he love. I and the companions and comrades with whom he served, we shall best honor the memory of Hartranft and of the great host who, with bim, have joined the army of immortals. Let us go forth to the burial, for the inevitable hour has struck, and we most commit oar comrade, compaaioa' and ccAmaadar to tha tomb. Charcoai For Stock.

Par son, Rochester. Planting Trees. Whether to plant trees in the fall or in the spring depends les on the season of the year than on the kind of a season ,t is. If tbe fall is a growing one, with seasonable rains, I would prefer planting trees st that time to taking the cham-e of a favorable spring. Each pei iod has its advantages as well as irs draw backs ac cording to circumstances that we cannot control. If the fall is a sea-ton of drought the planting should be de'erred un'd there is a favorable change, for the trans planted trees woold require extreme care or they would suffer greatly and many would die. In a favorable fail, whether planted earlv or 'ate, if there is sufficient moisture the trees w ill become well established in their new places ami be ready for an earlv growth in the spring. In an extremely cold section spring planting would probably be the better. The same unfavorable enVcrs would follow tree planting ia a verv drv spring, when ail vestetation was suffering from a deficiency of moisture, as would result from a dry fall, so that every one should be governed in th s matter by the favorable conditions that may be present st the time. Whether transplanted or not, trees are all the time giving out moisture, and if removed in a hot and dry time, no matter at whatseason of the year, they will suffer, because trom the loss of roots and the dry soil they cannot diaw a supply equal to the waste. What is cold in the herf? Medical au thorities say it is due to uneven clothing of the body, rapid cooling when in a per spiration, etc. The important point is, that a cold in the head is an inflamma tion of the lining membrane of the none, which, when unchecked, is certain to produce a catarrhal condition for ca tarrh is essentially a "cold" which na ture is no longer able to " resolve" or throw off. Ely's Cream Balm has prov ed its superiority, and sufferers should resort to it before the common ailment becomes seated, and ends in obstinate catarrh. Fall Ploughing. "Opinions and practices differ so mn.h among farmers as to the benefits to be gained by fall plowing, that no one can lay down any rule on the sulject that will meet all cases. Each piece of laud must be considered by itself aad broken np at a season and in the manner bet suited to its especial necessities- For in stance, there are some heavy clay soils that require tbe alternate freezings and thawings of winter to pulverize them. If left until spring for the ploughing the result will be a hard, cloddy field very difficult to cultivate, and in which the roots of the plants will scan-ely be able to maintain an exMence. Such grounds shonld have all the Is-neii: that can i derived from fall plowing, and in noca-e can they be injured by ir. If left un plouahed, the compact surface only is ex posed to the air, while if broken up that which is thrown to the top gets the ben efit of the exposure and the whole be comes better subjected to atmospheric ac tion as the result of fall piowinir. I think the nearet the freezing season it can be lone the better, as at that time a multi tude of insects will t s unearthed and de stroyed. Ground on which there is bnt little vegf-tation, if plowed too early, wiil settle down and become so corn p tt sjtin before frwzinu as to receive litile benefit; from ir. In the sprin I wonld apply the manure, plough sh illow nod harrow thoroughly to break the !umr.s. Usually ground that is fail plonghed will be ready for work earlier in the spring, which is in itself quite often an advantage. The fertilizing matters brought down from the air by the enow and rain are more readily absorbed by a ploughed than hr an nnplonghed field. Gravelly, sandy or mellow open soil are better when they are ploughed in the spring, near the time of seeding. Soch soils wonld be injured more than they would be benefited bv fall ploughing."
