CHILD RETT'S COLUMN.
The Stolen Doll. by i.onK ii:pkk. T ipT was twilight when she left the ivJfii store, and the street lamps vlfctii already blinking through the dusky air, and all the way home she fancied some one was following her that she heard low, stealthy footstep inst behind her, and if she met any one ' . . 1 . . .. X.. 1.A SUB aropiieti ner ejes, in ma , ness, fearing that her guilt might be read in them. "Mother say its very wicked to steal,' she thought; "that the angels shudder at the very sight of a.thief : that never any thing good happened to one, and the good saints who sent gifts totUe children on Christinas time always leave those out who are wicked. But, after all, I don't see any use in being good. I have never told a lie, or been cruel to anybody or anything, or stolen before, in my whole life, and nothing good has ever hurtnAned to me. If Santa Claus comes to me at all, which he seldom does, he only brings me a little paper of bonbons, or a Christmas cake; aud to Bertha Kerch, who never minds her mother, and tell lies.and says very wicked things he brings heaps ol oeautuui imugseiery ve.ir. . The angels couldn't have seen ine when I stole the doll, for I wasn't nut of doors, and how could they see from up In the sky through the roof of Herr Kinderfreund's store? And Ilerr Kinderfreund has a plenty more aoiis; he'll never miss it in the world; so where's the harm done" But, after, ail, Bettine's conscience troubled her sadly even then, and a lit . tie voice kept saying in her ear, "Carry the doll dack, Bettine! Don't rest until you carry it back !" But Bettine onlv clung to it the closer. How could she give it up before she had enjoyed It one moment? The stupid wooden doll would sleep out in the cold to-night; she wouldn't mind it, she had as boou be in one place as another, and this dear little rosy pet should tak. her placed , When she got home her mother was at the door looking for her, for It was sel dom that Betune stayed away from home at all, and she was beginning to be alarmed she was gone so long. "Why Bettine!" she exclaimed, "what makes you so late?" "O, I have been looking at the pretty things in Herr Kinderfreunu's shop," said Bettine, turning very red, for she felt exactly as if her mother knew all about her having stole the doll "And did von buy anything pretty with your pennies?" asked the mother, laying her hand caressingly on the little girl's curly neail. "No,", said Bettine; "two pennies aren't enough to buy anything there." And she hastened to her own room, and tucked the doll out of sight within her bed. Her mother thought that she must be very. disappointed that she wasn't able to buy any toys, for she was unusually silent over her supper, and ate very lit tle, though they had a wonderfully nice pupper for them, and just what Bettine liked hot rluin buns lust from the bakerv and she tried to console her with kisses and caresses, and talked hop fully of better days to come, when Beo tine should have as many toys as Bertha Bergh. But all this made Bcrtha feel more sruiltv and wretched. She felt as if she had no right to receive anybody's kisses or kindness, she was so dreadfully wicked : and as for the doll, she couldn't enjoy its society a particle, though her mother went out at last to carry some sewing which she had just finished for a lady, and left her alone with it. She . wouldn't bear to look at it. but preferred 1 to hold the old wooden doll, because she felt that, it was in reality her own, and It did . not reproach her every time she glanced at It. Bettine never weni 10 dcu betore with such a euilty eonscience,and when she kneeled down by her little bed, as usual, to say her praye rs, instead of praying she began to weep. "Why, Bettine. my darling, what is the matter with you ?" said her mother, auxiouslv But Bettine could only give another sob in renlv. "You surely are not ill, are you?" questioned her mother, again, taking her tenderly in ner arms. "No,'' BQbbed Bettine, "I am so got vy; and and tired. I want to go to sleep. And. her mother, thinking she was still grieving over her disappointment, and vet wondering that she should take it it so much to heart, was very sorry for her, and kissed her with unusual tender ness as she tucked her up all nice and warm in her little bed. O what a wretched night the little girl passed ! As soon as the light was out, for the first time in her life she was afraid of the darkness. She shuddered atthelouch ot her new doll's soft little arms,' and fancied that strange, awful eves were look! 112 threatinglv upon her The slightest sound In the street made her start, aud even when the wind stir red the shutters, she imagined it was some one coming after her. The clock struck one before she went to sleep, and then what an uneasy sleep it was! what terrible dreams she dreamed : once sue dreaincd that Herr Kinderfreund had changed into some fearful wild animal, and was following her about the streets, and the faster lie gained upon her the more she was unable to run : one heard his panting breath'just behind her, and felt it hot upon her ear. She tried to scream for help, but her tongue 'was paralyzed and with her frantic efforts to do so she awoke, but it was only to fall asleep again and dream something equally as terrible. And Bettine resolved, as she crept out of bed in the morning, that she would suffer so no longer, but take the doll ini tiiBiltofnlv lnwk tn Ilerr Kinderfreund's mediately back to Hei r Kinderfreund's shop. And all breakfast time she tried to make a confession to her mother, but it was too hard ; she couldn't do it. "I can slip into the shop and replace the doll unnoticed, "she thought, "and no one'-' will ever know anything about it." But when she got out- of bed she j wasn't careful enough to hide the doll, but left a bit of its bright dress peeping out over the coverlid ; and by that means her mother found it, and Bettine was obliged to tell the whole story. O how shocked, and surprised, and grieved she was, to think that her little daughter had been a thief! And Bettine almof.t wished that the earth would open and swallow her up, she was so full of shame and sorrow. "I shall never be happy again in all my life,' said Bettine. "I've been per fectly wretched ever since I took the doll," and you will never love me any more now. I was just going to take the doll back to Herr Kinderfreund's, and hoped that no one-would ever know it." And thci? Bettine ran away to hide her tearstained face, for there was a step in the entry, and she thought some one was coming in ; but no one was there, and her mother called her to get ready to go the toy shop with the doll. A great weight had been lifted off her mind as she hurried along the street, for her mother had kissed her and forgiven her before she started, since she was so truly sorry for her sin, and fortunately every one 'was too busy to heed her ns she stole into the shop, though it was very early and the shop almost empty. Herr Kinderfreund- was busy over a book of ac counts, and the dainty little saleswomen were engaged iu eating bonbons and chatting with their sweethearts, who were paying them a morning visit. Willi trembling fingers she placed the doll just where it had been before, and then hurried out of the shop. She was almost-sure Ilerr Kinderfreund saw her do so; and then he would have spoken if he had. And Bettine went home almost liapDV again, and still all day she could not help thinking and wondering at her- pq! for what, she liaci clone. That night she took her old woodeu doll in her arras and was hugging it with renewed affection, when there came a oniric, hurried tan at the door. "Onen'the door. Bettine," said the mother. And Bettine did so. but there was never a sign of anybody there. "How strange!" said Bettiue. wonder what it could be." But nnon looking about her. she espied a package lying on the door-sill ; and what do von sunn.se it proved to be ? AVInit but the most beautiful doll that ever was seen, very much like the one she had taken from Herr Kinderireunu s, only dressed a thousand times prettier, uiiy with a laircr iaee. aiiu upon uiu mtier which enfolded it was written : "To Bettine, from Santa Clans, who is verv sorrv that he forgot to bring it on Christmas eve, and is very glad that Bet- line repented having stolen me ptner doll and took it back to Herr Kinder freund.'' However could Santa Claus have found out that she had stolen a doll thought Bettine; and a great deal of sliatiu: was mingled witli her joy. She didn't suspect who the Santa Claus was, but I do. I shouldn't wonder if it was good, funny Herr Kinderfreund himself. I shouldn't wonder if he saw her wheu she took ir, and sent some one to follow her and see where she lived ; and I shouldn't wonder if he went to see about it himself n the morning, and happened to overhear Bettine's conver sation with her mother. Bettine thought she didn't 'quite de serve the doll, but nevertheless she was very happy iu its company for years afterwards, and all the toy shops in Christendom never couM have (enintert her to steal again.

Hie Prairie Farmer has a report of the Wisconsin Agricultural Convention, from which we make some extracts : "Mr. Looinis said his memory went back forty years. The farmers ot Herkimer were poor, uy hard work, by the women making all the cloth in the house, by always saving and never spending, an average larmer was able to 11 ml nimseit at tne enu 01 uic year the possessor or iw. cms was enough to pay the taxes, the interest on the mortgage, and to ouy tne scnooi books. ' He remembered when a neigh Dor came to his father, and told him that he had seen how they were making money over in Fairfield on tneir cows. He believed he would mortgage Ins farm and buy cows with the money. His father advised 111m not to. lie Doug in them, however, and died owning 800 acres of land, and a herd of cows that yielded a splendid income. He had also settled six sons on good farms each of whom had a line House and good sur roundings. Pairying had added mil lions of dollars to tlie weaitu ot iierKi- mer. Ho would say, however, with all your breeding, breed milkers. He moved from Herkimer county to the sandy re gions on the Wisconsin river. Old friends ttiere auviseu nun not 10 ony tne land he selected, but he purchased it. They said he neyer could raise garden on it. He found a meadow that had been in grass for twelve years. They told him he must plow it up. Instead of do ing so, lie sowed clover and plaster. It had been iu clover five years; pro duces well, and will continue to do so for many years, He Had succeeded in beating Herkimer county 111 raising timothy, clover, and red top. He con cluded by saying that you could not make a dairy with cows and grass alone. You must have men." Mr. John Carswall said thelftrst essential in successful dairy. ing is the man. Until the man was all right everything else would be wrong, To make money out of the dairy, you must not expect to make money out of anything else. You can raise a few hogs, grapes, apples and pears, but the care of them must be secondary. Let a man hesitate before going into dairying. If he cannot make up his mind to milk twenty cows twice a day, every day in the year, he had better give up the un- takiug before he begins it. Shkkp Farming. The Country Gentle man, in an account of a visit to the farm of Mr. A. Gregory of Orleans county, N Y., says: "Mr. Gregory has 239 acres of land, ot which about sixty acres ane 111 woodland, permanent pasture, roads, &c. leaving 190 acres for general culti vation. His Jeading crops are wheat, barley, oats, corn and potatoes, beans aud grass the latter mostly clover. He does not follow a regular rotation, but puts in his crops according to circum stances, depending about as much 011 his judgment as to what is best at the time, as upon any previous arrangements, air. Gregory finds sheep tne most prontame stock he has ever kept. He has good grade tine wool sheep, that average six pounds or more 01 good wasneti wool ; keeps from 170 to 200 old sheep, and raises from 50 to 100 lambs a year. His surplus sheep are fed for mutton; has never sold sheep any otner way, except some for good prices to take west, du ring the great sheep excitement. These fatted generally average about 115 lbs.. and sell at home for G to 8c. a pound live weight: feeds clover hay and corn, but onlv feeds a bushel of corn to CO sheen. This is divided so as to feed corn twice a day, nut ieeus ciover nay nve times a day. a little at a time, removing ill that is left each time. inis nay is ot the best Quantity, cut early and well cured, and retaining all the leaves, heads and fine aroma of the clover. His neigh bors wonder how he makes las sheep do so well on so little grain. In this way he can make a pound of mutton as easy as a pound of beef or pork, and have the wool besides; tiiinKs lie preiers to make mutton, as it.is less trouble, to take care of the sheep. He can also winter store sheep with less care and attention than other stock, mere are 110 staoies to clean out. and the sheep in pens and yards inflict less injury on each other than cattle. Feeds store sheep twice a day; gives them all the bean straw they will cat, and also all the wheat straw they want, but only a peck of corn a day to 8S head. These sheep tire in good condition : they may find a few beans, but the beau straw is excel lent feed lor sheep. Mr. Gregory says his sheep have paid all through the low prices. J his lias ueen inainiy one to good management to holding the wool until it brought a fair price, and to feed ing and selling his surplus sheep at good prices. He intends to be always prepar ed to feed sheen when It la desirable. AVhen the low prices commenced he had 330 sheep, and has thus worked off the surplus without loss. This is deemed important, as showing that farmers may thus avoid loss by good management when prices take" a very unfavorable turn. It also shows how much better it is to thus use some brain work than for all to rush out of the business and sacri lice their Hocks. By thus making sheen pay at all times, their profit as a whole lias been . very large. One year he sheared 1,200 pounds of wool from 100 sheen, which sold for 1 a pound, and raised about 100 lambs, most of which sold the next March at 5 a head. Mr. G. savs his wool lias averaged 50 cents or more a pdlind for t;ho last 20 years, RELIGIOUS NEWS. Kansas has 1,820 school-houses, 319 of which were built last year.

' The Ritvalastic Church or St. Mary the Virgix.

McK.ee Brown rector. Key. Father Noyes, late of St. Al bans, and assistant rector, and Hey Father Olmstead, assistant minister of Trinity Chapel participated. Tlie occasion combined also the inau guration (by the administration to the wedded couple ot trie blessed sacrament) of tlie memorial high altar which ha3 been in the course ot construction there for several months past. It will be rec- odected that the Cliurch of St. Mary the V irgin is built upon land donated to the trustees by John Jacob Astor, upon the sole condition that it shall be forever of the Protestant Episcopal faith and usage. and so it is. The altar is one of white Italian mar ble, built in the French Gothic style of the eleventh century, and was erected Dy a member ot the parish, in memorial ot his deceased wite. it is approached iroin the body of the chureh by nine steps (upon which are engraved the beautiiui words of the "Magnificat"), the highest of which steps, nearly six feet from the floor ol the nave, lorms the plattorm or foot-place, whence the mam structure rises'. The altar is seventeen feet i length, including the wings, and its height to the top of the center spire or tabernacle, nearly thirty feet. A marble revedos.or super-altar, extends the whole length ot the communion table,- rising to the height of twenty-one leet above it with canopied niches at each end for statuary, supported by slender columns with richly carved caps, rrom the cen tre of this super-altar projects tlie tabe nacle, an exquisite piece of sculpture over which, within an elaborate canopy stands a cross of black marble, with crimson tints, nearly five feet iu height. surmounted by a delicately carved dov in purest marble, descending with ex. tended wings, the symbol of the Itorv Spirit. Tlie roof is of tesselated marble slate, supporting six golden candlestick while upon the super-altar are many others, appropriate in number and design to the tiBuages of the Anglo-Catholic rit ual. At the base of the three altar steps and upon the carpeted platform stand the Saiictus Lights, of superb design and workmanship, each fifteen feet in height from the floor. These are. used only when the 'Saiietus'" is sung. The elab orate and beautiful carvings on the altar arc delicately ornamented at intervals with gold ami crimson in tasteful relief. The door of the Tabernacle, within which aredoposilcd the sacred elements, is formed of a very elaborate piece of missal painting in gold and colors. The erection of this superb altar is destined to have an influence upon the Cliurch at large by calling attention to the necessity of sermons to the eye as well as to the ear, and exciting more de votional feeling among the people. PRACTICAL HINTS. The rariw recipet irliU-h icill Itereafter be giren to onr reader, in Ikia department, are presented only qftr they hnre been tested and pniren reliable. Tkt information they contain ill, thereore. aheay be found to be rahntbte and veil iPory of prrercatiou. Suttee fur Boiled Padding. Equal parts of butter and white sugar, well beaten together till it becomes light; then seasoned witli nutmeg and wine or brandv. Keep paint brushes in salt water du ring cold weather, to prevent tlie an noyance of having the brushes lrozen over night. Jtmse them in clear water before using. . Valmible Diteiua Jtrc-inet A Goml Ite- cifte fur Ittjeimj Gretn. For five iKUinils ot cotton cloth, take one pound 01 lusiic and four ounces of chip logwood ; soak in a brass kettle over night; neat the dye; then add one ounce of the vitriol. V hen the dye is boiling hot, put 111 the cloth. Adrice iu Case nf Poiitoniiifi. Stir into a glass of water a heaping tea-spoonful each of salt and mustard, aud drink im mediately. One or more doses will empty and cleanse the stomach. To overcome the effects, swallow the whites of two or three eggs, and drink a cup or two of strong coffee. Sweet oil. taken freely, is excellent in poisoning. Wart Cured. Take a common match or other bit of soft wood, chew the un used end so as to make a miniature broom of it, dip it into nitric acid, called aquafortis. -This will take up a drop. Rub it on the head of the wart only : for if it touches the skin, it will burn it. Re peat this operation daily for two or three days. The wart is thus made a little sore and will soon disappear. Sance for Betted Puddings. Take one pint of water, a large tcacupful of sugar. piece 01 ouiiersizeoi a iargv egg, n 111 tle nutmeg and essence of lemon, and bring to a boil. Xow take a little flour, or -corn starch, (which is best) well bea ten into a paste, and thinned, and fclirui rraduallv. till ot the consistency of ream, or as thick as you like; then add a large tablespoonful of vinegaror braudv. Creorti Pie. Bake your paste not too ich, in common pie plate first. Boil one pint of milk; when boiling, stir iu half cup flour, one cup of sugar, and the yolk of two eggs; beat well together. Cook long enough not to have a raw taste; add juice and grated rind of one lemon, and a little salt; beat the whites of the two eggs, witli a cup of sugar, to stiff froth: spread over the pie when filled, and brown in the oven. A Good Becipe for Blue. For five pounds of cotton cloth, dissolve seven ounces of copperas in hot soft water; take a tub, and work the goods in it one hour, then rinse in clean water. Take one ounce of prussiate of potash and dis solve sufficient water to work the goods well: then add one tabiespoonmi ot oil of vitriol, stir it well, and leave in until it attains the shade required ; have the dye milk-warm. By taking the same copperas water and adding to it weak lye, you can color a very pretty orange. To Preserve Furs. 1. Lay up along with furs to be preserved a tallow can dle. 2. Take out the furs from the drawer, etc., frequently, beat them well, expose them to the air. and scent the box where they are kept eitner witn spirits of turpentine, eainphor, Russian leather, or cedar woo'd. 3. Pepper them well before putting them away. 4 Wash them over with a very weak solu tion of corrosive sublimate. If this so lution leave a white powder on the fur when dry, it is too strong; ten grains to the pint will be enough. Another Recipe for Blue. lake one pound of material; two and a half ounces of alum, and one and a half ounces of cream of tarter. Boil these one hour, then pour 111 liquid blue until it is the shade, you wish. Put in the goods and boil a short time, stir ring it well. Remove the goods and rinse in cold water; then dip them in a yellow dye, composed of one-half pound of sugar of lead dissolved in hot water; one-fourth pound of bi-cromate of pot ash dissolved 111 a wooden vessel, in cold water. Dip first in the lead water, then in the potash, until the color suits. Blue and yellow forms green. Jlotc to Keep Cider. Sir. E. Williams, in the Journal of the Farm, gives the following : " I am aware that there are as many recipes for keeping cider as for curing colds or rheumatism. Some of thenn doubtless are good, but most of them are-worthless. iere is one wnicn I have found to answer the purpose ad mirably, and as your readers will ob serve, is a very simple one. i aiiow tne cider, after it comes from the press, to stand until the pomice settles. V hen this point is readied, I put in a clear ves sel, and let it come to a boil, skimming off the scum carefully. It is then put nto kegs or demijohns, and tightly corked and sealed. By this process I have excellent Siveet cider, not merely for the entire winter, hut for years. This method would not, of course, be availa ble where large quantities are made, but for an ordinarv.taniilj" it answers admi rably. Toilet Bo.res. Tliese handy and neat receptacles for combs, brushes, etc., de serve a place on every bureau. Take an ordinary pasteboard-box, ot any size and shape-preterred ; paste or rather starch over it smoothly any material and color you fancy. Starch smoothly oyer the inside paper-nmslinof a sim- lar or contrasting coler to the outside. Hold the box and its lid iu such a man ner that you cau put one piece from the top of the front edge to the lid. (Of course all ordinary box-covers are pro vided with a rim ; in converting it into a toilet-box this rim should be removed, as the additional thickness ot the mus lin, etc., will prevent its fitting.) . The cloth forms a hinge at the back. If a thin pin-cushion, the size ol the box- cover, and thicker in tne center than at the edges, is attached to either the in side or the outside of the lid, under the muslin, it will be lound a useful addi tion. Over the bright colored material on the outside yon can now plait, gath er, or put on 6moothly, according to cir- cumstauces, any transparent white fab rick yon choose, and finish at the edges with ruttling ot the same lace, or satin ribbon. Tlie last is considered " the thing" by most persons, but the other trimmings look quite as well and have the advantage ot being cheaper. When soiled, the outer covering can be removed and washed ; but if the box is placed in a drawer during sweeping or when the room is unoccupied, it will be kept clean for along time. Hearth aud Home, Concerning Bed-3fakiny.-To make a bed really well, is something of an art. If one lias spring bottoms and hair mat tresses, there is not much danger ol beds being hard, however they are handled ; but as comparatively -tew farmers lami- lies are blessed with the possession ot these, we must do the best we can. Xo one who is not enough of a Spartan to sleep comfortably on a barn-tloor, will commit the absurdity of using a pilaster under a teather-bed. A case ol tick ing," tilled thickly and evenly with good, long oat-straw, surmounted by a thick mattress of carded wool, forms an excellent bed if properly niuUe; but the straw in the under bed must not be packed until it is as hard as pressed hay, nor pushed anout until it lorms decided lulls and valleys, tor the pliable wool- mattresses ot course accommodates it self to all the inequalities of the under- bed. Every bed-maker should be taught to spread her straw evenly, and put the mattress smoothly over; to lay the bol ster flat instead.ot bolt-upright; to place the sheets always the two right sides to gether (so that the side which has been in contact with the persou ol the occu pant may not be turned to the mattress- cover or the blankets,) and the broad hems at the top, so that the part ot the sheet which has been next the feet one night, may not touch the face the next: to pull the bottom sheet well tip at the head, so that it can fold under the mat tress, and thus he kept iu its place; to put the upper sheet equally far down at the toot, and tuck It in so thoroughly thut he must he a restless sleeper who will displace it ; and to treat blanket or counterpane in the same way, putting them in the bed one by one, bringing thein up smoothly, and turning them over at the top in a neat fold about a foul broad, just below the pillows. .Mattres. ses should alwavs ho protected bv niuvnttlt ioverinnr. like :t hmr. tltHmr tlie i mattresses rather loosely, and tied at one end.
