Not Used to It.?Abner Stone had livei
"inland" all bis days, and knew all then
was to be known about pork and beef a:
articles of food. His acquaintance with th<
products of the sea, on the other hand, wai
very slight; in fact it wns confined to oni
lobster, which his younger brother, Wil
son, had brought up to the farm from Bay
port one summer, when he came up for i
short visit.
Abner had enjoyed that lobster amazingly
and it was in some measure his praise o
this fish that led Wilson to press his brothei
to "make him a call" the next autumn 01
spring, and "eat his fill" of fish. "There';
heaps 'o things better'n lobsters," Wilsoi
averred. "There's shad, now; I reckoi
you'd find shad would relish pooty fair."
" i es, inaeeu, ne oner eat some 01 ow
shad," chimed in Mrs. Wilson Stone ; ant
the next spring, with thoughts of shad ir
his mind, Abner went down to Bayport.
He had a tiresome journey, for he wai
not used to traveling, and when he reached
Bayport, at night, he was more than rcadj
for bed.
"You're goin' t' have some shad in tin
mornin','' remarked Mrs. Wilson Stone, ai
she bade him good night.
The promise was kept, but somehov
Abner did not seem to enjoy the delicacy ai
his brother had expected. Iu fact he ate s<
little of it, that Wilson said at last, "Don'
ye like it, Ab, after all ?"
"Well," said the old farmer, with a brav<
attempt at a smile, "I calc'Iate I shell, whei
I get kinder wonted to it, mebbe; but i
does seem, jest as fust, ye know, consid'abh
like tryin' t' eat a paper o' buttered pins!'
A Contrast.?An amusiug story is tolc
of old Doctor Emmons, a clergyman wb<
was equally famed for the extreme neatnes!
of his person and for bis carelessness in re
gard to his "establishment."
He started one day to "exchange" with i
brother whose reputation was so to speak
the complement of his own. The two di
vines met on the road, about half-way, ant
stopped to indulge in a fraternal chat. Doc
tor Emmons's horse looked as if he had nevei
known the touch of a currycomb ; the dusi
of bygone days whitenened his old chaise
and several seedy haystalks daugled con
spicuously from the top aud sides.
The old minister himself, however, fault
lessly neat from head to foot, was a shining
figure in the dingy equipage.
Not a single hair lay "agee" in the glisten
ing coat of the other minister's steed, and
the sunlight glittered on the polished covei
and wheels of his chaise; but his own per
son and dress had been neglected. In th<
language of today he would be described a:
Unaware of this fact, he gazed at I)r
Emmons's turnout with increasing disap
proval. As he was about to drive on h<
fired this parting shot at his friend :
"Brother Emmons, I should think yot
would be ashamed of your horse."
"And I, my dear brother," was the quick
response of Dr. Emmons, "should almosl
think your horse would be ashamed of you !'
After which interchange of shots, the twe
old friends parted in perfect good humor.
Too Lono-Winded.?When a person k
brought up in court it is well to get a good
lawyer, one who is a good talker. You
should also take care that he is not too long
I heard a >oung lawyer make his maiden
speech. It was in defense of a fellow whe
u.'oa hnlr.tvitlpii arrested on the churcre ol
stealing a hog, the young attorney having
been appointed by the court.
His defense was that his client was an idiot,
and unable to distinguish between right and
wrong. He closed a flowery speech with
this peroration:
"Gentlemen of the jury, look at my client,
That low, receding forehead, those lustreless
eyes, portend that he was deprived by Nature
of the power to distinguish right from wrong,
ignorant of the distinction which exists between
his own property and that of others,
To him, as to the two-year old child, whatever
he wants and can reach belongs to him.
He knows neither why it does nor why it
does not. But, gentlemen of the jury, such
are the institutions of this our free and
glorious country that my client, idiot though
he is, stands for trial today by a jury of his
The culprit got the full penalty of the law,
Hk Helped Her Off.?Among the passengers
on a Bryn Mawr accomodation train
a few days ago was a very stout old lady,
says the Philadelphia Record. She occupied
au entire seat because there was no room beside
her for anyone else. She looked worried.
Finally when the train was uearing Haverford
station, she lenued over and tupped the
shoulder of a young man in front of her.
"Pardon me, young man," she said, '^can
you tell me what the next station is?"
"Haverford, ma'am."
"Well, young man," she continued, "when
we get there will you help ine ofF the train ?"
The young man expressed his willingness
to do her that service, but he looked so surprised
that the old lady hastened to make
an explanation.
"I wouldn't ask your assistance, young
man," she said, "but I tried to get off two
statious back, and couldn't. You see I am
so stout that I have to get down the platform
steps backward. The conductor saw
me, unfortunately, and thinking, from my
position, that I was just boarding the train,
he*helped me on again."
Thoughtlessness.?Farmer Simpson was
an exceedingly mild natured man, and
would find excuses for the shortcomings of
his neighbors, for the faults of his horses,
and, in fact, for every unpleasant thing
that came iu his way. He purchased a cow,
and had great difficulty in keeping her in
the pasture.
"She's kind of a rovin' critter; but she
means well," he said after a walk of several
miles in pursuit of her.
One morning he was milking the cow,
when she begin to kick violently, upset the
-stool, sent the pail Hying, and all the milk
was spilled.
The farmer got up, and contemplating the
ruin, said gravely to a witness of the disaster:
"Well, now, that^is the worst fault
this creature has."
Then after a moment's meditation, feeling
that perhaps he had been unnecessarily severe,
he added. "That is, if you can call it
a fault; maybe it's only thoughtlessness."
HfMANE.?It is hard to understand how
any one can be too humane; but it really
seems, if a story receutly told by a French
journal is true, that the society for the prevention
of cruelty to animals has something
to answer for.
Two little girls had been visiting an exhibition
of paintings with their governess. On
their return their mother asked them :
"Well, what picture pleased you most ?"
"The one that showed the Christians
thrown to the lions iu the Roman arena,"
both children answered.
"Indeed!" said the mother. "I suppose it
workeil on your feelings to look at it."
"Oh, yes, mamma," said the youngei
child ; "there was one poor dear lion that
didn't have any Christian to eat!"

Not long since, a celebrated case came up
for trial in Fresno, and the lawyers were
examining jurors. One, whom we shall call
George Jones, was in the box being questioned
before being permitted to serve on the
jury. Among other questions, the lawyei
asked Mr. Jones where he lived. "On the
West Side, about six or seven miles from
Firebauh," was the response. "Yes," said
the lawyer, "farmer, I suppose?" "I dunno,"
answered Jones, "I plow and sow."
toy "Speaking of narrow escapes," observed
Mr. Chugwater, reaching for his second
cup of cotl'ee, "did I tell you I was 011 a train

Mrs. Chugwater. "How did it happen ?'
"The train that came so near running into

The following estimates of seeds of different
kinds to be allowed to the acre of ground
in order to secure good crops is furnished to
The Rural New Yorker by a market gardner.
Believing that it will prove of the
highest practical value to many of our readers
we give it herewith :
In sowing seed it is always advisable to
sow more than is actually required. It is
better to have a surplus of plants rather
than to be hunting for them. A very important
condition to be considered when
recommending the quantity ot seed required
is how close the fertility of the soil will admit
of planting. Land in a high state of cultivation,
like the laud of a professional market
gardner, will admit of closer planting than
the general run of farm land. In my recommendation
as to quantity of seed required
I shall specify the distance apart the
plants may stand, and thnt distance will be
from the standard of our Boston market
garden lands.
Beans, dwarf, in drill three feet npnrt
and eight inches in the drill, one and onehalf
bushels per acre; one quart to 100 feet
of drill. Beans, pole, in hills three feet
apart both ways, ten to twelve quarts; six
seed to the hill. Beets, table varieties, in
rows fourteen inches apart, six to eight
pounds. One ounce will sow fifty feet of
drill. Cabbage, in beds, one ounce will
produce 3,000 plants. It will take G,500
plants for an acre with rows three feet apart
and the plants two feet apart iu the row.
With seed sown in the field, thinniug out to
a single plant, with six seeds planted to the
hill, two pounds will oe required. Carrots,
with rows twelve inches apart, three pounds.
One ounce will sow 100 feet of drill. Cauliflower,
the same as cabbage. Celery, one
ounce will produce 4,000 plants. One aud
one-half pounds will be required for drilling
in the field. Corn in rows, three and onehalf
feet apart, the stalks to stand ten inches
apart in the row, ten quarts. One
quart will plant 200 hills. Cucumbers, in
hills four feet apart each way, one to two
pound. One ounce will sow two hundred
feet of drill. Eggplants four feet each way,
one-fourth pound. One ounce will produce
about 1,000 plants. Lettuce, in beds to
transplant, one-fourth pound. One ouuee
will produce 4,000 plants. With seed sown
in drills twelve inches apart in the field,
about one pound, plants to bo thinned to
twelve inches apart in the row. Watermelons,
hills six feet apart each way, four
pounds. One ounce will plant thirty hills
with six seeds to the hill. _ Muskmclons,
in bills five feet apart inch way, about two
pounds. One ounce will sow 100 feet of
drill. Parsley, in rows of twelve inches
apart, one and a half pounds. One ounce
will sow one hundred and fifty feet of drill.
Parsnips; in rows fourteen inches apart,
six pounds. One ounce will sow one hundred
feet of drill. Peas in rows three feet

Care of Houses' Feet.?It is often said
that the fool is what the blacksmith makes j
it. This is only true in a limited sense, as !
the blacksmith is not usually given much |
opportunity to either preserve or ruin the |
average horse's foot. The blacksmith is not I
to blame if your horse is given water when |
t-ap hot, and his feet foundered in consequence;
nq^her is it his fault, if, through
the negligence of the owner or attendant, a
horse is allowed to contract thrush, or picks
up a nail, or pounds himself over rough or
uneven roads until ringbone or stonebruisc
forms. It is not the blacksmith's fault if the
shoes are allowed to stay on until corns are
developed ; nor is he to blame when the
toes grow too long, and a spavin is thrown
out iu consequence ; nor when the foot contracts
at the heels and the horns of the walls
become dry and brittle, because of latent
congestion. The care ot a horse's foot dc-1
volvcs more upon his owner and immediate
attendants than upon the blacksmith, who
is too often made scapegoat of those who are
unwilling to shoulder the blame of unfortunate
results of their own negligence. The j
smith's duty is at an end when, after call- j
ing attention to any apparent wrong, he j
levels and prepares carefully and shoes carefully
the feet of the horses that are brought
to him. Don't blame the blacksmith for
your horses bad feet unless you have given
him an opportunity to manage their care
and treatment every day and night in the
year. It is true that many blacksmiths
contribute, through ignorance or unskillful;
farriery, very materially to the destruction !
of the feet of horses which arc brought to;
their attentiou ; but it is just as true that a j
great many horses' feet are ruined outside of
thau in a farrier's establishment.?Clarke's
Horse Review.
Easy Rkcimkn for Dyspepsia.?A fruitful
cause of indigestion is eating when one
is tired. At such times one should not take
solid food. Drink iustend, a glass of hot j
milk. Nothing is equal to it as a stimulant ;
aud sedative. The milk should never be I
scalded, but heated quickly, and drank as j
hot as it can be comfortably. The process of!
heating reduces both its sweetness and den-!
sity; but the effects of its cordial andstimu-1
lating powers is felt at once. Some portions I
of the milk are appropriated and digested I
almost immediately after they are taken into
the stomach. Many who think they need '
stimulant, when exhausted by fatigue, will :
find in a glass of hot milk an equivalent that j
will be at once satisfying ami revivifying, j
without any deleterious after effects.
It has long been demonstrated that motion
round and about a vital organ reacts upon it
and vitalizes it. Exercise is a great aid to
digestion, and special exercises intended to
act directly on the digestive organs are re-j
commended as cures for dispepsia. The
Olie Called the tnr.xt exercise is very l'ciicH.
i-jn!, -?uit is an invaluable aid to weaTTTkhd |
impaired digestion. With the arms hanging
lifeless from the shoulders?technically called
"decomposed" or "devitalized"?and
keeping the feet (irmly on the floor, twist the
body as you can, turn it from right to left ;
and vice versa; this stimulates voluntary
functions and expels stagnant juices.
To ('l.KAN Ci.oTilKs.?The proper way ofl
restoring old clothes is as follows : Take, for j
iiwtsince, a shinv old coat, vest or pair of
trousers of broadcloth, nissimer or diagonal.
The scourer makes a strong, warm soapsuds,
and plunges the garment into it up and
down,"rubs the dirty places, and, if necessary
puts it through a second time: then rinses
through several waters, and hangs it up to
dry on the line. When nearly dry he takes
it in, rolls it up for an hour or two and then
presses it. An old cotton cloth is laid on the
outside of the coat and the iron passed over
that until the wrinkles are out: and the iron
is removed before the steam ceases to rise
from the goods, else they would be shiny.
Wrinkles that are obstinate are removed by
laying a wet cloth over them and. passing
the iron over that. If any shiny places are
seen they arc treated as the wrinkles are?
the iron is lilted while the full cloud of steam
rises and brings the nap with it. Cloths
should always have a suds made especially
for thein, as in that which has been used for
white cotton or woolen cloths, lint will be
left in the water and will cling to the cloth.
In this manner wc have known the same
coat and trousers to be renewed time and
again, and have all the look and feel of new
garments. (food broadcloths and its fellow
cloths will bear many washing, and look
better every time because of them.
Maxurinc for Mki.ons.?Those who
grow large watermelons state that they make
the hills in winter. If the ground is not
frozen too hard, a pile of fresh horse manure
Is placed where each hill is to he, and the
manure covered with earth. In the spring
after the weather becomes warmer, the manure
is well incorporated with the soil.?

; the cuisine ull that a superior chef and
unlimited orders on the market can make it.
"You see," lie continued, "I have already
provided you with a cage for your bird ; got
a nice house here in town. I even took the
liberty to buy your furniture and carpets, but
wouldn't trust myself with the other things
'cause I knew Polly would have better judgment
in the minor details than an old man
like me.
"After breakfast we'll go arouud |to take *
a look at the place, and then pay a visit to | *
some of my Yorkville friends.
"To expedite matters, I have ordered a
carriage from J. W. Dobson, our enterprising
livery man."
When the handsome carriage, with elaborate
trappings and prancing horses drew
up in front of the hotel, Polly declared
it the "finest turnout she had ever seen."
"Yes," replied Uncle Josh "the three S's?
Speed, Safety and Style'?is Pohson's motto. I
So, young folks, when you want to take n|
drive, either for business or pleasure, go to'
him frir si riir everv time."
It was in this stylish turnout that llic!
rounds of the town were made, and after a |
visit to their new home, which Polly declared j
was "perfectly lovely," much to thesatisfnc- (
tion of Uncle Josh, the old gentleman said : I
"Now I reckon the lirst thing to look after
is something to cook with, so we'll go to P.
A. Abernathy's stove and tin store. Here
Polly's housewifely instincts had full play in
marvels of kitchen apparatus. There is not i
an establishment in the country that carries '
a more comprehensive stock of culinary furnishings.
Every possible piece of kitchen 1
furniture, from a tin dipper to a cooking!
range, is here in all styles and variety. Jfi
Polly fails to accomplish wond??-? in the culinary
art, it will not ,w? ior want of superior
cooking utensils, for she purchased (
an "Active Fortune" range with all equip- (
incuts needed in a well regulated kitchen,
besides a beater for the parlor. While
the girl was making her selections, UncleJosh
engaged Mr. Abcruathy to do sotne
Unroofing and guttering. At this point,
somewhat to the confusion of Charles, the
old man indulged in a half serious
criticism of bis personal appearance. "You
are decidedly otr style for a townsman,"
said he, "and we'd better go to Inman Brother's
gents' furnishing house. After Charles
had fitted himself in a neat late style business
suit, from the piles of fashionable gar-1
ments that cover the tables of this popular
establishment, Uncle Josh declared : "Now i
you look like a uewly married man." Befm?i?

irresistible, Charles also invested in a com- i
plete outfit of gents' furnishings, from the
late style hat to a dozen shirts. Iman Broth-1
ers are not to he undersold in the State.
Here Uncle Josh was noticed to he exami- j
ning his check hook rather lugubriously.
"By the way," he remarked, as they reached
the street, "I must run over to the Loan and
Savings bank and get another check book. '
Come with me and get acquainted with Mr. I
F. A. Gilbert, the cashier, and Geo. \V. Williams,
the bookkeeper, for of course you will!
do business with them, and it is always more!
pleasant to be personally acquainted with the
people you do business with. The bank is
as solid as the base of the universe, and has
a good working capital. You will find
them ever ready to extend any accommoda-,
tions compatible with business principles,!

can I go for dry goods? This dress is hardly
suitable, I must admit."
"Well, my girl, if you want to select from

Charley, when you want fertilizers for your j
I farm, remember that Dr. J. ('. Kuykcndal

At this point Uncle Josh suggested a re- |!
sort to some place of refreshment. V
At the refreshment table the old man wax-1
ed philosophical. "Never neglect your lard- j
er," said he. "That important adjunct to I
housekeeping controls masculine temper, j

! "there goes a handsome phaeton; I must
' have one like that for the girl." "<!ct it right "I
I here," said the old man. "You see, my J
j friend S. M. (irist sells the Koek Hill buggies,
and they are the 'dandy.' Sam is satis- a|

soon the happy possessor of a ltock Hil _
phaeton. J
''(Hi!" ejaculated Polly, as they halted he K
fore a show window, "what a perfectly love (':
ly slipper." !l!
"Yes," said I'ncle Josh. "J. J. Hunter'
lock can't he equaled in style and extent in
this section. (!o in, look it over and get acquainted."
It might have been policy not to have extended
that invitation, had not Uncle Josh
known what wise economy it is to trade atj
Hunter's, for l'olly found goods and prices I
*o seductive that she purchased an out-1
fit from a comfortable house slipper to a
handsome walking boot. Charley invested j
in gent's shoes, while Uncle Josh indulged in ;
a stout farm hoot. No one needing foot-!
ivear can resist the styles anil prices offered
at J. J. Hunter's.
"I would like to make you acquainted I
with Dr. A. V. Cartwright, my dentist friend,
loo," said the old man. "If you ever have
to supplement your natural teeth." "Ugh !
Don't you mention false teeth to me," cried
I'ollv. "I'll never carry 'pearly lies' in my
mouth if I go toothless." "Oh, as for thut,"
laughed Uncle Josh, "if you'll only consult
a good dentist in time, you can save, the
catastrophe. Dr. Cartwrighl, for instance,
is wonderfully expert in saving natural teeth,
and he has the skill and every mechanical
appliance necessary to do his work with the
ienst discomfort to his patrons." And when
they got up to the dental office, Uncle Josh
law some of those aluminum plates, and
lie remarked, "Well I'll he gol darned if I
lon't get me a set. They beat the old kind
all to smash."
"And in the matter of insurance," lie continued,
"that is of importance. You will
want a risk on your new house, and fire,
ightning and tornado insurance on your farm
property ; then you can't do a more sensiale
or satisfactory thing than to give your

ake out accident for yourself. Fortunately, |

"Only one thing," replied Uncle Josh, relectively,
"but I can remedy that. The furliturc

suite of furniture shall have returned
and paid for the largest list of names (including
old and new subscribers) up to 4 o'clock p.
in., on the 14th day March, 1895, such person

twenty, ten, seven, or three names, and has
failed to secure either the buggy, gold watch
or harrow, ottered for clubs of old and new
