The Gnome of the Fairy Grotto. ST AtllrTHYST WiJKI. 'KTHCTB clapped his bauds in delight. At Well little A lm bleToe winced. "Forbear, I pray you, you make a hur- rlcane for me. .Now the question is how am I to get the cap on your head, since it must be fairy hands to place it there? O, I have a bright idea. Come under this tree." Arthur obeyed, and Mnible Toe with a few dexterous leaps gained the lower limb, and dropped the cap on Artnnr's head, as the latter threw off his straw hut to make place for it. ZZZ Jnst a little tremor crept through Ar thur's heart, as he seemed to feel him self growing smaller, and smaller, dwin dling away Into a speck, although per fectly conscious of seeing everything around him Just as well as ever. But in 5 a moment he had forgotten all about it," and eagerly enough he accepted Xini Ue Toe's invitation, when he said gaily : "Now then, my Colossus, you may go where you" pleaue, notwithstanding that huge body of yours. Mind that you keep close beaMs me, and come along, for the ,r wit nn.and .I've a few affairs of my own to look after." 1 So he took Arthur's hand, which had i ap-own small enough for his clasp, and Ihry went on towards the banquet hall. 'Afid noWiT' for the first' time, Arthur perceived that what-he thought were moonbeams, slanting through the leafy boughs;? were, slender alabaster pillars forming the support of the emerald roof, from which the twinkling lamps shed their tremulous glory. The most gor geousgaxlandswere linked from pillar to pillar, every ."blossom glowing with a "vivid lustre quite beyond anything he had ever seen by daylight. , And all the fairy folks seemed very busy, and very happv, and they flitted to and fro fo swiftly ,and wore such brilliant clothing, all Arthur eould think of was a crowd of butterJIie!rvTaancing over a' flower gar den. ' ;The" long table waa loaded with queer dishes, and the tiny crystal wine-glasses were filled with a liquid like water, only it shone and sparkled like a dewdrop in the sunbeams.' ! 'Still there did not seem to be any movement toward setting down to the table, but i everyone was busy ad 'ding something to its cheer." Arthur was presently aware of a steady line of fairies passing from the banquet hall out into, the grassy lawn, and even across the meadow to the darkness of the grove, where scarcely a ray f rooon Hgbt4COul1l.4Con1e.ivH pressed Nimble ' Toe's hand and whispered : "Where are all those fairies goiug, Mr. Kimble Toe? I should think the wood would 'seem gloomy after this beautiful . place," .; -: 1 - a ; "They are going to see the Gnome, and as I have business there myself, I think we will follow in their track." ""80 he led Arthur out from the banquet "hall, across the green sward, toward the grove. ' -"I think we will ride, since you can't " fly; and I'm sure -1 couldn't be content to walk," said Nimble Toe. And he blew a little shell which hung from his belt by a silver chain. It gave out a clear whistle. A queer little black beetle crept out from the grass, and . stood bobbing its little tusk in humble greeting before Nimble Too. "Bring the chariot," cried Nimble Toe, auttioritlvely. The beetle nodded again, and crawled away, and in a few moment half a dozen butterflies, har nessed with slender threads which seined stolen out of a, rainbow, came flying forth, drawing a tiny carriage "made out of a 'rosy-lipped "shell, and the wheels looked for all the world like the wild sunflowers Arthur had seen growing by the brook that very morning. Two glowworms were sitting on either side for lamps. Nimble Toe jumped lightly upon the rose colored cushions, and seized the reins, nodding for Arthur to take the seat behind him. ''Why," answered Arthur, in per plexity, I can take your carriage right in my hand ; why, then, do you think of my getting into it" - "You leave the fairy-eap out of your calculations," replied Nimble Toe. "But come, let us waste no time, or the gnome will be too much occupied to attend to us. Don't jostle my bundle here. It is toDe my crowning gift to the queen's festive table.'' .r 1 Arthur looked where he pointed, and saw what seeuied to , him a worthless heap to be put in the carriage with such care." A single cup of the pitcher plant, handful of acorns, a tall reed from the river bank, a chain of red berries strung In fanciful patterns, a crown of twisted osiers, and a bunch of grass glittering ' with dew. - ' "Odd gift these for a fairy queen," thought Arthur, but he kept discreet silence. : "And now, away with you ; let your wings outstrip the wind," cried Nimble Toe, shaking the reins. And the butterflies, looking like'gol den specks tangled in a rainbow, flut tered away, the glowworms illuminated their path, and in a trice the chariot was at the wood. How dark it seemed ! Arthur noticed hoTt. the brilliant hues died off into dull ness from fluttering wings, and spark ling equipments, the moment they passed the line and entered into the dim damp atmosphere of the woods. Arthur saw Nimble Toe shrug his shoulder, drew his mantle snugly around bis neck, and shake the reins impatient ly ; and when he perceived that even the glowworms had changed their steady glow of light Into a feeble, sickly bcaiu, something of the general chill fell also upon him, and he looked around into the murky gloom with an apprehension orevu. - . "It's a dismal place," muttered Nim ble ..Toe; "it gives a fairy the ague at onee ; and I don't feel so surprised that our young" folks had rather go without the benefit of the' gnome's help, than venture into this road. Uow that old wizard, the owl, can take up his quar ters here passes my comprehension, but he's the sentinel, and a remarkably faith ful one I admit. ' New,' then, we must dismount." He got down from his seat slowly and stiffly, so powerfully - had the damp gloom of the woods affected his hitherto wonderfully .agile limbs, and Arthur followed his example. . Before them lay the black depths of the woods. All was still, except for the dreary sighing of the great branches of the trees, that waved to and fro, and the ' Wild, monotonous cry of an owl from the thicket before them.. ; "Take my hand, for we. must feel out every step of the wav," whispered Nim ble Toe. i ; "What, are you afraid? you a mortal, ' upon - whose coarse texture this datnp ' ness scarcely acts at all. while to a fairy it is the most exquisite pain ? Can't you trust to me?" ' His teeth were chattering with cold as he spoke, and Arthur, quite ashamed of his momentary hesitation, give his hand, saying: "O yes, I will go with you anywhere. I am not cold ;it is the dark that troubles me." "We shall have warmth and light enough presently. I would take a glow worm, but the rules forbid. It wouldn't do to have it too easy to get to the gnome you see. Now don't speak a wordto me till we are Inside the cavern, else you will break the spell." Slowly and carefully they made their way through the tangled underbrush, ' and at length they stood under a pine tree before a great rock which they could see ; for above it was an archway of flre-flies strung thickly along a frame work ot twigs. And here sat the owl whose voice they had heard, his great eves fixed upon them in solemn gravity. In one claw he held a long wand, which he waved towards them warningly. . But Nimble Toe did not seem at all alarmed, but he rather beean to reassume his briskness nnd cheerfulness. He bowed with pro found respect, and chanted a few lines in some lansruaee unknown to Arthur. whereupon the owl lowered his shield, and struck the wand smartly on the rock. And to I an invisible door swung open suddenly ,and therefrom streamed a blaze of light, and a breath of grateful warmth swept over them. Nimble Toe pressed Arthur's hand with a warning gesture for silence, and they Btepped at once over the rocky stairway mid the great door swung again to its place. Arthur thought rather ruefully of his pleasant little room at nome, ana nis mother's arood-nicht kiss, but he bad ,' great faith in Mr. Nimble Toe, and a night with the fairies was such a rare privilege it would not do to miss It. TO bb coTmvo.J AGRICULTTJR Fkofessor L,AW,of Cornell I'niversity-, seems to have demonstrated that the , milk of cows compelled f drUiJvUfi naut water, full of the Qngj or Tege7 table organisms that abound in nch wa ter. The moral is that cows should have an abundance of pure water it we ex pect them to lie healthy and to give jrood milk. Maxcise is rarely made a? lim a.-Sr should be in order to it-t out its fertiliz ing power. If applied in a coarse con dition, only a very small portion of the soil is affected by it, because it does not come 111 contact with it. If it were as fine as powder, spread over the land an' minutely worked into it, much more ef fectual results would follow. IVm. T. Campbell writes the Itnral j Xew Yorker: "It U very seldom that a ' hore interfere when barefoot: and it should be the aim of the horseshoer to have the horse's foot, after the shoe is 011 It, as it was before it was shod ; so, in stead of a heavy shoe, make one a3 light as possible a shoe the same - as running horses have.

No Profit ur Mii.kww too Lo.--It is generally thought best, so far as my knowledge extends, to let dairy cows go dry three, or at least two months. .My own experience wonld give three mont hs as about the host average lengtii 01 linn cows should go: dry ' before dropping alisin, iu Klnv.ra, X.

Cows that tire milked too i tv years, unt'.l the whole habit of Ms long, either get thin in flesh, and give j but little milk, and that little ot poor quality, or elso require a largeanijint of nutritious food to keep up a good sup ply of milk and the animal in good flesh. Mj- rule is to feed liberally as long as I do milk, and when a cow gives less than about two quarts of good wholesome milk, dry her off ami lessen the feed. A dry cow needs but about two-thirds the amount of fodder required by a cow of the same size which gives milk, so that there is no present profit in milking too long, unless uairy products are verv high, to say nothing of the damage impairing the future usefulness ot the i cow. -Country Gentleman. Foxes as Shekp-Herders.-TIic Stock- i ton (Cal.) Republican vouches for. .the following story : "People ofteu'wondtr at the remarkable instinct displayed by well-trained shepherd dogs, but what will they say when we tell them of a band of sheep that is guarded by l'oxes ; alone. The story seems improbable, but of its truth we have the uiost.ituduubte,d proof. On Whisky hill, four miles from Milton, may be seen, almost any day, a large flock of sheep herded by foxes. These guardians of the little lanjbs are three In number one a gray 'tok and the other two of the species known as the red fox. In point of intelligence these novel shepherds are said to greatly surpass the best trained shepherd dogs. They perform their work well, and from morning till night are ever on the alert. The gray one seems to control, and in a great measure direct, the actions of the other two. A gentleman informs us that he recently saw the gray fox pursue and attack a hog that had seized a lamb and was making off with it. The con test was short and sharp, and resulted in the hog dropping the lamb and beat ing a hasty retreat. The lox picked up the apparently uninjured lamb and car ried it back to the flock." ' Kaisixo Turkey. -It takes'"' aboiil three years for a' turkey to attain bis largest weight. If at twelve months a gobbler reach thirty pounds live weight, at two years he would reach thirty-ilve, and nt three years forty or a little more. But it is rare to get a male bird above forty pounds, and then it is generally by some process of stuffing. that destroys his- stamina and oftentimes-bis-. lfe This weight is excelled sometimes ; but about the time one thinks he is almost sure of a forty-five pounder, the prodigy slckcns and dies. -It may be assumed, then, that forty pounds is the limit to which a vigorous turkey cock may be safely carried, and from half to two thirds of that weight is the last safe limit for the hens. With breeders of this size, and a little under, we should get large, strong chick3, that will econo mize lood and mature earlier than the offspring of common-sized birds. No bird yields more quickly to treatment than the turkey. The influence of a large-sized gobbler in a flock is immedi ately visible in the increased size of the chicks. The introduction of wild blood Increases the hardiness of the young. A large proportion of the eggs will hatch, and a much larger number of young will lie likely to grow up. With a little painstaking, it is quite easy to breed to any desired shade of plumage. American Agriculturist. How to Make a Hot Bed. It. is. not too late in manv of the. Northern States for making hot beds, and those who have garden wlirilncT tte?lngrear"S(r- vantage iiw starting earljs. vegetables. Where there is room for a large bed, let tuce, radishes and other vegetables may be raised in them without transplanting. -ine ioiiowmg directions are irom the Massachusetts Ploughman: ' : "The size of the hot bed'; will depend upon the design, whether simply for family use or for the market. The frames are commonly made of two-inch plank framed together at the ends in such a way as to be easily taken apart and stored; many simply nail or hook them to cedar posts set at the four corn ers. A common sized hot-bed for do mestic itses would be, say ten or twelve feet long and four feet wide. The posts ought to be three or four inches square. The frame of course has no bottom. "The location should be on dry land with a southern aspect. Let the frame on the south side of the frame be about eight inches high, and the north side from eight to twenty inches, according to the slope or inclination of the ground. The top of the frame ought to have: a slope from eight to twelve inches, to let in the heat of the sun and shed the ram. The best material for a hot-bed is fresh horse-dung from the stable. One-third its bulk may be sawdust, tan bark, fresh leaves or straw. It may be put in now, or from the twentieth of March to the first of May. Mix the material togeth er and put in the depth of two or three feet, and a little wider, say half a foot wider on each side than the frame to be placed over it. Then put on the frame, and cover the material four or five in ches deep with a rich and mellow earth, the material being first settled down by pressure with a fork. The frame may be covered with glass or with strong oiled muslin tacked on laths so that they can be rolled up. Such covers admit the light and shed oft the rain, and will be warm enough, except on extremely cold nights, when some straw can be thrown over them. If glass is used, small panes, say not over 6x8, are better than large ones, as they are less liable to break. "After the frame is put upon the heap of manure, let it stand a few days, till the most violent heat lias passed over. This fermentation may take place before the soil is put on. After a few days the seed may be sown, say about six weeks before the ordinary time for transplant ing in the garden or open ground. Ex amine the bed every day, and if the bent is getting excessive run a stake or crow bar down into the manure here and there to let the steam escape. The sashes may be raised a little also. If the soil becomes too dry use a little slightly warm water, and if the heat falls ofi', pile up a little fresh manure around the sides of the bed. Matting or straw may be used to throw over the beds on cold nights. "Tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, potatoes and many other vegetables may he .start ed in this way with very little labor, and so may be had on the table much earlier than otherwise." X. 1'. Obsm-er.

Sacred Groin Us. Herr - Peteriuann, the celebrated geographer, says the Hartford Posf,) has expressed his satis faction with the report of Carl 3fauch, the Gorman explorer, wherein the dia mond fields of Kast Africa are said to be identical with the Ophir of the Bible, whence gold, ivory and precious stones were brought to Jerusalem by Solomon's ships, to be used in the building; of the Temple. Discoveries made by Britton, Mereusky, Gruetzner and Mauch him self, seem to have shown that Ziinabye is the exact place, as its geography tallies in all particulars with Biblical intima tions, and it wonld take vessels such as the Phoenicians had about three years to make the round trip by the most proba ble route. Gold, diamouds aud precious stones abound : there are. ruins of large buildings of undoubted antiquity : in its neighborhood, where ornaments and in struments are found which could : not possibly have been made by the natives, but might well have been left there by the Phoenicians. The opinion of Groti us, Huet, Bruce, and others, seems thus to have been very nearly correct. .Persecution of the Jews. A cor respondent writes to the London papers : "The latest news from Koiimnnia is truly hear! rending. Great as have been the cruelties committed at Ismail, they were far exceeded by the horrors perpetra ted at (,'ahul. This is a town with a pop ulation of about 7,000, 1,000 of whom are Jews.

One of the suff erers, named Gold, more courageous than the other victims, defended his house for three days, his four sons standing by him. lie made them swear that, should lie fall,' they would continue to fight.

The ceremony of admitting a deaconess into the Episcopal Church was made the oc casion of a special service recently in Brooklyn. A crowded audience was present, Bishop Littlejobn preached the discourse from the text in the Epistle to PhilHpians, iy. 3: "And 1 entreat thee also, true yoke-fellow, help those women which labored with me in the Gospel." He said 1 am glad to know that the sub ject on which I am to address you this evening can be discussed upon Its own merits. The birth of sentiment in re gard to it throughout the church during the past few- years has been one of the most noteworthy features of the time. Twenty years ago the very mention of it would have beep received with positive disfavor. Ten years ago the public dis cussion of it would have been listened to with prejudiced Indifference. But so remarkable has been the change of feel ing recently that it seems to have taken its place, by common consent, in the fore front of the questions which relate to the practical work of- the church. Happily, therefore, I have not to plead or argiio for it :m a thing disliked, or de nied, or opposed. , The Bis., op then pro ceeded to set fort h the Scriptural and Apostolic authority for the office of dea coness, its history as a living agency in the church, the relations of the deacon ess to the church, aud the lines of work which those relations authorize and re quire, and generally the uses which it subserves and the interests it will affect. ilev.

Cure for Borer. Dr. Hull asserts in the Prairie Farmer that the simple use of soft soap, put on hot, is quite as effec tual against the borer, for the exclusion of the moth from laying her eggs in the bark, as the carbolic soap, and not one eighth as expensive. .To Clean Tintcare. An experienced housekeeper says the best thing for cleaning tinware is common soda. She gives the following directions : Dampen the cloth and dip in soda aud rub the ware briskly, after which - wipe dry. Any blackened ware can thus be made to look as good as new." .A Good Dressing for Lettuce U : "Three well beaten eggs, three tablespoons of sweet cream, two teaspoonfuls of made ' mustard, a little butter or oil, ten table spoonfuls of vinegar, a little cayenne pepper and salt; place it on the fire and stir until it thickens. This is also a good dressing for cold cabbage." . , Pie Crust. One cup of sweet cream will make dough for two pies. . Stir the cream into the floor just long enough so that the dough can lie rolled ; no longer. The addition of a little sour cream will not be detected after baking. The thicker the cream the shorter the crust. But we prefer even thin cream to lard. Bean SoHp. Wash the beans and boil them with salt pork. When soft, take them out, and pass through the colander.

To impart to common pine tue-coior-ana appearance of black walnut, the following compost tion may be used : One quarter of a pound of asphaltum, one half a pound of common beeswax, to one gallon of turnentine.

Moths Again. Various other articles than camphor - are used to keep moths from furs and woolens, packed away. Common wafers are recommended bv some, but the objection to these is that they are hard to obtain. Others say that a small quantity of "bitter apple," or eveu a common tallow; candle, placed among the goods will prove eflective, Another claims that shavings of Russia leather scattered among the furs will drive away the moths. Ground black pepper is recommended by some. The Cashmere and Delhi shawl merchants use whole black pepper corns and prefer them to camphor. ' Bat any one having a valuable fur rug or cloak cannot do better than let it be "knocking about exposed to dry air in the room ; it never gets moth eaten. . : Varnish. In making varnish, pure gum copal, resembling amber in color and perfectly clear, should be taken. Break it in small pieces, and put it in an iron pet ; a wrought iron is the best, as it will stand the heat. Melt the gum over a coal, coke, or charcoal fi re, slowly, taking care that it does not get hot enough to ignite oil of turpentine when the latter is poured'in. The pot should be covered with a lid, having in it a hole sufficiently large to admit the stick for stirring. .When the gum is melted, remove the pot away from the fire, that the turpentine may be added without danger of ignition. Pour the turpen tine in through the hole in the lid, stir ring the mixture all the while till it is of the proper consistency. . The precautions against fire must be strictly observed, as the vapor of the turpentine is highly inflammable. - Boston BrouiH Bread. Prepare the meal like the graham; sift, but turn back the bran and use it. Two and a half ounces of Indian meal, one and a half of rye both measured after being sifted half a cup of molasses, one cup thick sour milk, two cups sweet milk, one teaspoon f ul of soda. A cup of sweet milk and two teaspoonfuls of cream tartar can be used instead of the sour milk, with equal success. Pour this batter into a three pint pail, or any ves sel of about that size which can be cov ered tightly. Place It into a kettle con taining boiling water enough to come halfway up the sides of the pail. Cover the kettle nnd keep it boiling three hours and a half. Set the bread In the oven fifteen minutes, to dry oft'. Water must be kept boiliua. with which to fill ud the kettle as it boils away. It must be wutched closely, but when it is done the cook will be well repaid for her trouble. Cut the slices round the loaf, and if you have a healthy stomach, eat the bread i while it Is warm.
