A very unsightlv object it was, to be sure, dui siwu ' j o spot, Just on the edge of meadow, on a lomy bank, below which ran the swift eddies of the river, and at the right of a pretty grove of chestnut and oak trees. It was just in sight of the pleasand windows of his mamma's sitting-room ; although he could not hear her voice if nun her white handkerchief on the blind, and knew that it meant he was wanted at home at once a summons he was often very sorry to recognize, but that he never failed to obey, for my little a was not. a iiauehtv bov to cheat his mother by pretending not to see the handkerchief, or to refuse to obey, after he knew her commands. Arthur had a great many treasures in this pretty nook. There was a water wheel in the shallow ripples of a little brooklet straying through the meadow to find the river, wmcn n iamer uau - for him upon leceiving a promise from Arthur that he would in no case venture down the bank of the deeper and more dangerous river, .And. the shower of sparkling DODOies ana imwr vioth. spray the wheel flung around it pleased Arthur extremely.

A coHWtspojiDENT of the Country-Gentleman had four horses that contracted the habit of crib-biting, lie psuntW the woodwork of the stable with crude pe troleum, and was amused by the grim aces of the animals over the smell and taste, but rejoiced that in his case it ef fected a cure. , At a recent farmers' discussion in Scotland, on the improvement of stock. one of the speakers gave the following good advice: "As it is tne generally recognizea maxim mat uie exterior iunu partakes more of the conformation of the sire than the dam, aud as - one sire will to some extent improve the whole of each year's stock, while a female gives but one superior beast, I would say procure superior males at whatever cost: and should thev be too expensive for the size or tne larni. lei two or tnree farmers join in the purchase and keep of one animal."

Water ix Milk. Milk -upon a fair averaare contains 88 per cent, of water, and consequently the farmer who car ries to market 100 arallons of honest milk lias in his wagon 88 gallons of honest water, which he- honestly sells to his customers, at fair rates per gallon. It seems hardly necessary to carry the at tenuation further, by resorting to the pump for more water. There is a pop ular impression that the water naturally existing in milk,' vegetables, fruits, and grasses, differs in some way from that drawn from our wells and springs, but it is essentially the same. The water obtained irom tne sources named is pure water; that drawn from -springs and wells usually containing a few grains in the gallon of organic and inorganic matter, derived from the soil through which it perco lates. This is all the difference. From whence conies the water found in milk ? Manifestly it U derived from the grasses of the pasture, the hay from the mow, and from the water drank by the animal. This all passes into the economy, and serves to dilute the various active prin ciples upon which its value as food de ponds. Without dwelling upon those interesting: points which relate to the chemistry of milk, let us consider the various forms of food best calculated to promote a copious secretion of thclluid in the animal. During a period of two years I made some careful and interest ing experiment? upon a herd of ten cows, which are kept upon my farm. The results of these experiments go to show what a vast difference exists in the value of the feed of pastures apparently similar in soil and situation ; also the difference In the green or succulent plants which are grown as food for cows, to be iiscd in the late summer and early autumn months.

But lie was tempted to be angry wita tnem, vuey nat j and distrustful of him. But you see they - had known little boys who threw tones, and delighted to torment all such helpless creatures, and they kept at a discreet distance, only now and then gliding out when he was so quiet they elieved him gone. . ; lie had a box-trap, also, which a cousin of his had given Vin ; but he only set it once, for when he esiigiit a poor - mtie brown rabbit, it was so frightened, and eemed to suffer so much, Arthur's ten der little heart could not bear it, and without even taking it home to exhibit in triumph, he hastily opened the lid, and let ' the poor little Bunny leap away to freedom agaiu. Do you think that was very simple aud foolish ? Kay, when he went to his mother, with wet eyes and trembling voice, telling what a dreadful night the poor little rabbit had passed in his trap, and how he never meant to set another trap for any such innocent creature,she kissed him fondly,and said : "That la mv nnhle-liearted little boy. Tliat is the spirit to make a hero." And Arthur went back, proud and satisfied. But as I said, Arthur was always dreaming his day-dreams about fairies, and one day he had a wonderful vision, there In the play-ground.by ; the river. lie sat under the chestnut tree to rest himself, after a long run across the meadow, and was idly heaping the old burrs into a pyramid, when the first he knew it was deep darkness around him. He thought he sprang to his feet in as tonishment, although not at all frighten ed : for somehow I nave always noticed that it is the tender-hearted boy who never torments animals, nor bullies small boys, who is the most brave and courageous. - i "Wcll,to be snre.this isvery strange," laid Arthur. "I am sure it was light enough a moment ago. and now it is night., 1 must find my way home, for mother will be alarmed." But that was much easier said than done, ; The darkness liung like a black blanket all around him. Jfot a step could he take without stumbling. , " "I will wait," said wise little Arthur. "IX it ' i8 . really night, there will be a moon presently, though where the stars have gone to, is queer enough to me." So he sat down, and fought valiantly to keep down a vague feeling of terror. And then presently he was aware thow thcrs ara ' came out !ohe by one, and seemed to nod to him a "cheerful " good evening, and a brightened hue In the east showed thai the moon was really there below the horizon. He could see around him now, and marvelled that the scene appeared so familiar and yet so strange. There were the rows of trees, and the meadow,' and the river, but they seemed to have taken a different shape. The boughs ot the chestnut were raised and enlaced together, forming a long arched roor or verdure, irom which, iiKe rany lamps, hung myriads of fire-flies. The ground beneath was like a carpet of emerald of velvety softness. For all the world it looked like a banquet hall made ready for a party of revellers. Little Arthur opened his eyes in won tleriug curiosity.-. Brighter and brighter grew the scene, as the round resplendent moon swung silently and steadily over the tree-tops, and launched her silvery car Into the blue sky. Then indeed, the wonders opened more swiftly than he conlcl watch them. From every side came troops of tiny trreatures, and in a thrice the banquet hall was filled, and such a busy scene ensued as one could scarcely find words to describe. Arthur was enraptured.but he was not content to gaze in silence. They were fairies, real genuine fairies, alive as much as he. He wanted to talk with them, to ask a score of', questions, and quite unable to restrain his eager ness he darted forward. "Take care!" chirped a little voice, that might have come from a lark, It was m silvery clear. , He started and looked down in consternation at his foot, which was near crushing a wee body, clad In a green velvet suit, buttoned with . what seemed little sparks of Are. - 'O dr ! have I hurt you?" cried Ar thur, 1n consumatloii. The dapper little fairy man shook himself,' to be sure he was sound in limb, ami then stood staring at Arthur iu astonishment. And so for a minute the two stood looklngcnriously upon eacli other. Then the little man held up both his hands, each about the size of a butterfly's foot, and burst into a peal of tinkling laughter. "O what a monster! what a mountain! what a giant!" cried he. "I should fly In terror if lie did not look twice as frightened as I." Hi tone and iesture was so Irresistibly eomicnl that Arthur laughed too, alid for a minute or two, nothing was heard but their mingling tones, though it was Komething like a base -drum and a flute. "Prithee, friend, not so loud, my ears are some what delicate, and yonr voice Is like ; thunder for- them. . And who. may von be, and how did you nnd your way Into our fairy ring, where never before in my day, came foot of mortal?

The man who makes agriculture a scientific study is corsldered by many as one who is not, or cannot be, a" practical farmer. Prac tical farming, with such men, often con sists in manuring lightly with barnyard litter not manure which must lie in the ground mouths before it can become sufficiently rotted to serve as food for the growing crops, in sowing the seed, and in cultivating and harvesting the crops. rom oDsprvation, tney nave found that labor performed in a certain way will bring about a result of some kind, and so their labor is performed mechanically only, because it will pro duce a result which they hope will be profitable. We have a neighbor living on a farm of fifty acres, who hires one hand for a few months during the year. He raises but little, and, as he is in debt for all his property, can scarcely ' pay his interest." He cannot sec the profit in buying fertilizers, besides he has no money to buy with. He has not learned that theadditoin of manure to the soil will not only increase the necessary ele ments for plant growth, but will im prove its mechanical condition, while the increased amount of vegetation will draw more largely from the atmosphere, thus paying a large interest upon the in vestment, and consequently making the profits of farming greater. let this man calls himself a practical farmer. We have another who owns a farm -of one hundred and fifty acres. He star ted a poor mau. but by unceasing labor. by economy In all expenses on the farm and in the family, by requiring an ex cessive amount of labor from his em ployees, by concentrating all his time and energies upon the accomplishment of ends that were principally, if not wholly, for his own pecuniary interest lie has succeeded in increasing his property, and is what Hie world calls a successful man. His knowledge of the vnlue of manures Is sufficient to lead him to use them liberally, though he knows nothing of their chemistry, and acknowledges be can find no time for reading. His stocK is wen Kept; ins crops generally fair. He is a practical farmer. Of the two, the latter is the more practical, because he better under stands the necessity of feeding the soil ; but, though he may, have been econom ical in all other respects, he has not been so in the use of manures, and it Is here that the truly scientific farmer becomes more practical than lie. The one may apply to the soil, for the production of a certain crop, a manure rich in potash while the deficiency was only In lime; the other, having studied the Constitu ents of plants and manure?, knows what particular elements particular plants most need, and supplies those ele ments in such fertilizers as are best adapted for the purpose. . The one may plant his crops in succession as to al most exhaust the soil of an essential cle ment ; while the other, by his knowledge, is enabled to arrange them in such order as to draw all the Ingredients in due proportion. The last named studies the nature and habits of plants. He is con vinced that the delicate spongy mouths of the roots can absorb nothing that is not at first dissolved until thoroughly rotted. With him, tilling the soil is not working in dirt. It is the scicnee of de positing in Nature's great receptacle the earth certain elements In certain proportions and under certain circum stances, so that she may bring them into the form ijeccssary for the sustenance of animal life. It is theBcience of allowing nothlngtointerfere with, or deter her op erations from the beginning until the completion of her work from the ger m ination of the seed until the maturity of the plant. Such is the office of a practical farmer, aud as the one who has most swlied the science of agricul ture, is best acquainted with nature's laws and workings, the truly scientific fanner must be the practical farmer.

The Lord was with his servants ; a spirit of prayer rested on the few hearers who loved the Savior and the Holy Spirit breathed on this valley or dry bones, Twentv-two nave already professed a hone ia Christ and unlted.wlth the Pres byteiian Church, and others are still coming to Jesus.

The Book Committee of f the Methodist Epis copal Church, south-, met at the Publish ing House. Nashville, ! February 16th, and determined to make an effort not only to rebuild the portion of the con cern recently destroyed by fire, but also the entire house, with a line stone front, and looking to the expenditure of at least $50,000. During the discussion it was mentioned that if prompt measures were not taken by the citizens of Nash ville to aid in rebuilding, the General Conference of 174 would probably re move the establishment to Louisville, or some other point. Kev. ur. Kedtord the agent, said that the business of the Publishing House , now amounted to ubout 1,000 per dav, requiring a cash outlay daily of $500. In 18GC, when lie took charge, it" was a little less than $100,000 in debt, anil did a business Of about $1,SW per month. Its net cash capital, including buildings, ground. and stock, was now over $200,000, with out any lucunbrauce whatever. Before the meeting of the committee finally ad journed, some $12,000 were announced as already secured for a new building. The Coming General Conference. This body, which assembles but once in four years, meets next May in Brook lyn. It Is the legislative council of the church, arranges conference boundaries. directs the work of missions and elects Bishops. It is composed of representa tives from all of the regularly organ ized conferences throughout the world, the ratio of representation being as one to thirty ot the ministers. The total number of ministers In the church is now 9,090. The number of clerical del egates will probably be between 260 and 270. The number In the last body was 231. One of the most Important matters pertaining to this General Con ference is the fact that lay delegations will be introduced for the first time. That will increase the number by at least one hundred and tweiiry-flve. There will be aii-unusually large num ber of bishops elected because of the great mortality in the Episcopal Board within the last four years, nearly one half of the bishops having died during the term. The increase of work has been so great,' and the n umber of de ceased bishops"so large,' that theVe will probabty be from six to eight bishops elected. The sessions of the conference will be held daily at the Academy of Music, lasting three or four weeks. - Suet Pudding.

For Cementing Wood, Iron, fe. The following has been proved for cement ing wood, iron, leather, glass, paper, and almost all kinds of household mate rials : Best isinglass half an ounce, rub it between Jthe hands until it breaks down into a powder, put in a bottle, and put as much common acetic acid to it as will just wet the mass through. stand the bottle In some boiling water, and the paste -will dissolve and be fit to use at once; it will be solid when cold, but is easily warmed up the same as be fore. Leave the cork out when warm ing, or there will be a blow up. A Strong Cement of Isinglass. First soak the isinglass in cold water, when swelled put it into a bottle with spirits of wine, and set the bottle in a pan of cold water, place the pan on the stove, and bring it gradually to a boil. At this stage of the proceedings the isin glass will be found melted into a jelly, without lumps or strings, it geiantlne which has been swelled in cold water. be immersed in linseed oil and heated, it dissolves and forms a glue of remarka ble tenacity, which, when once dry. perfectly resists damp, and two sub stances joined by it will break rather than come asuuder. This is an admira ble cement for attaching ivory or tortoise shell to wood. How to Catch Bats. One of the pests of the farmer is rats. To keep them within endurable bounds is somewhat a difficult matter, for a rat is as cunning as a fox, and as hard to catch ; but there is such a thing as working strategy on it. A rat never digs a hole unless it has some projection to begin with, say a stone-, a stick of wood, or anything else that makes an angle with the ground; a cellar wall it likes the best.' If a rat is chased in a cellar or other room it will run round by the wall, decidedly averse to leaving it. From this habit we have a hint how to outgeneral it. i'he com mon steal trap is the Dest article ror the purpose. Stand a box or barrel, or oth er article, within four inches of the wall, and iu that open space, set the trap without anytumg to niue it. ine rat in following the wall will get into the trap rather than go rounu the barrel. Y hen It Is caught smoke the trap with a piece of burning paper, shift your barrel to another place, and set the trap as belore. it, ia aaiu iuai ii a uiiui uiues wnere crows frequent and they see him go there." they will stay away until they see lflua leave. If two men hide and one leaves, the crows will come back to the man that is left; and this because a crow cannot count. Thus with the rat, there is something in the combination of the wall, the trap and the barrel that it does not seem to understand. Cor. German town Telegraph. . Filing Saws. The secret of patting any saw in the best possible cutting or der, consists in filing the teeth at a given angle to cut rapidly and of a uniform length, so that the points will all toucli a straight edged rule without showing a variation of a hundredth part of an Inch. Besides this, there should be just enough set in the teeth to cut a kerf as narrow as it can be made, and at the same time allow the blade to work freely without pinching. On the contrary, the Ken must not oe so wide as to permit the blade to rattle when in motion. The very points of the teeth do the cutting. If one tooth is a twentieth part of an Inch long er than two or three on each side of it, the long tooth will be required to do so much more cuttiug than it should, that the sawing cannot be done well. Hence the saw goes jumping along, working harder and cutting slower. If one tooth is longer than those on the other side of it, the short ones do not cut although the points may be sharp. When putting a cross cut saw in order, it will pay well to dress the points with an old file, and afterwards sharpen witli a fine whet stone. Much mechanical skill is requis ite to put a new saw- in prime order. One careless thrust with a file will short en the point of a tooth so much that it will be utterly useless, so far as cutting is concerned. The teeth should be set with great care, and the filling should be done with great accuracy. If the teeth are uneven at the points, a large fiat file should be secured to a block of wood in such a manner that the very points only may be jointed, so that the cutting edge of the same may be in a complete line, or circle. Every tooth should cut a little as the saw is worked. The teeth of a hand saw for all sorts of work, should be filed fieaining, or at an tingle on the front edge; while the back edges may be filled fieaming, or square across the blade. The best way to file a circular saw for cutting wood across the grain, is to dress every fifth tooth square across, and about one-twentieth of an inch shorter than the others, which should be filed lleuining at an angle of about forty degrees.
