'KTHCTB clapped his bauds in
delight. At Well little A lm
bleToe winced. "Forbear, I
pray you, you make a hur-
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
-"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
"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

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
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,
"O yes, I will go with you anywhere.
I am not cold ;it is the dark that troubles
"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.

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
"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

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.

lowed again to be beaten, and for several
days left without food... One of the suff

Ordlxatiox of a Deacoxess. 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.

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.
Then put them back iu the same water
they were boiled in, with four hard
boiled eggs cut in quarters, aud a lemon
sliced, and a little pepper if you like it

FreticJi Vegetable 5o. Take two car-
! rots, two turnips, two onions, two heads
of celery, two potatoes, half a pint of
split peas, two pints of water (or, better
still, broth,) two or three cloves, and a
few white pepper-corn's. "-Boil all to

Loaf Cake. Two cups of sugar, two
of milk, two or flour, one or yeast.
Make into sponge over night. In the
morning rub together two cups of sugar,
one of butter aud four eggs. Flour to
make stiff ; one nutmeg, cinnamon and
cloves, if wished, one pound of fruit.
Raise till light, and bake in an even
Graham Fruit Pudding. Stir unbolted
flour into (nearly) boiling water, until
of the consistency of mush. Let it took
five or ten minutes. Have ready a deep
dish. - Place within it a layer of berries:
then a layer of pudding, and thus alter-
nate, until the dish is full. Some fruits,
such as apples, require to be cooked be
fore being placed in the pudding. Eat
with sugar and cream.
Alum in Founder. Make a drench of
one tablespoonful for a dose; give two
doses, an hour apart. Take a bucket of
scalding water, put in it one teacupful of
turpentine and one pint ot salt. Bathe
the horse's legs well from the knee
down. If he flinches don't go so high
up. It will not take the hair off. This
will cure the worst case of founder in

the vessel containing the shellac should
be put into a larger one containing hot
water. .Boiling water is tnen poured on
the gum, after which ammonia is added
slowly, but continuously, stirring all the
while with a glass rod, until solution is
ettected. . An excess ot ammonia will
color the solution brown. After cooling
the fluid is filtered, and may be kept in
this state a long w tine
Apple Dumplings. Mix well together

Black Walnut "Stain." 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. If found
too thin add beeswax; if too light in
color, add asphaltum, though this must
be done .with, caution, as a very little
will make a great difference in the shade,
and black waluut is not what its name
implies, but rather a rich dark brown
Varnishiugis not essential, as the wax
gives a good gloss.
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.
