It was just in sight of the pleasand

At a recent farmers' discussion in

one of the speakers gave the following
good advice: "As it is tne generally

partakes more of the conformation of
the sire than the dam, aud as - one sire

of each year's stock, while a female

there is an air of stillness and primness

then date an era of progression which is
sadly needed through our land to-day.

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. From Dr. Nichols'

who were exceedingly interesting in
Arthur's eyes, who threw tliem slyly
many a dainty bit. 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

eemed to suffer so much, Arthur's ten

without even taking it home to exhibit in
triumph, he hastily opened the lid, and

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,

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

" And with the utmost complacency he
stretched out his own bit of a foot and
ri.in.pr1 from it to Arthur's.
" 'My name is Arthur," answered the
, "ami this is where I play every

Th Pbacticai. Earmer. 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.

their sincerity in the face of the world,

Britain. The following are the figures
in regnrd to the 30,702 of foreign birth :
Of these, 20,270 were born in Great

A month ago, Rev. H.' M. Walker, of
Elizabethtown, assisted by Rev. B. W.
Chidlaw, missionary of the American
Sunday School union, - commenced a
protracted meeting. : The congregations
were small, seldom over fifty in atten

people, members of the Sunday School.

of prayer rested on the few hearers who

their future usefulness and stability.
Revivat. at 'North Bksp, Ohio. In
1822, a Union chapel was built near the
Great Miami riverj two miles from the
North Beud,. Ohio, the home of Gen.
W. H. Harrison, who was one of the
most liberal contributors towards ite
erection. For many years ministers of
various denominations - preached occa
sionally, but no religious society was
toriue'J. Among these were Kev. Thos.
Thomas, (father ot prof. T. E. Thomas
Lane Seminary) and the late Dr. Seo
vil, President of Hanover College, Ind.
Their labors gathered the Presbyterian
element scattered over a' wide territory,
and eventually two Presbyterian
churches were formed at Cleves "and at
Elizabethtown, villages a few miles
from this old rallying centre. The
Bend meeting honse henceforth became
the home of a Union Sunday School, and
the pastors of the neighboring churches
occasionally preached within its vener
ated walls. . , ;

TnE Southern Book Concern. 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.

Cure for Hydrophobia. A German
foreet-keeper, eighty-two years old, has
published in the Leipsic Journal a re
cipe for the cure of hydrophobia. The
bite must be bathed as soon as possible
with warm vinegar, ana water, and,
when this has dried, a few drops of mu
riatic acid poured upon the wound will
destroy the poison of the saliva, and re
lieve the patient from all present or ru-
ure danger.

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.

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. Industrial Monthly
