CHILD R.ETFS COLUMN.
The Unforgiving Sister. BY KARL MARBLE. ' ' T was a pretty scene, tliat one cjOjL in the rich parlor that winter ?.v!7- afternoon. A little girl with kV-A shinine. sroMcn curls, and radi- ., va in which crlcamed a world of love and beauty, sat upon a richly-em-w:.irHl cushion which she had thrown the sofa. In her lap she held a i;.riw. and bv her side lay a wreath ' ' . . . i n-:u .1 - of lri"ht not-nouse num. iui mcc latter she was decking the bright silver ollar worn around the neck of the former, with many a crow of delight as the little dog snapped playfully at the flowers, alternately looking wistfully in to the face of his little mistress. Yet at that moment the door opened, and one made her appearance therein who did not ce the beauty of the picture. Her first exclamation was: "Why, Minnie! you naughty, naugh ty girl! "What are you doing?" The sunshine was gone from the child's face in an instant. . She jumped hurridly up from her seat on the cushion -irh look of sorrow and fright on her lace, while the little dog scampered be neath the soia, ana biwii pecjniiK umn l forth - . .... . . I . . 1 ani;Af1 1 1 1 1 1 : 1 that moment, that the bouquet slie had taken belonged to her sister; and even then she did not know bow rare and ..nartp if was: although she knew that she had done something wrong, and felt very sorry for it. Ho, after standing timidly a moment in the centre of the room, where , she had risen from the cushion, she approached the other and said : 'Dear -sister Edith, you will not be angry with me, wUl you? Please for give me. I did not mean to do wrong." "Xo, Minnie," was the reply of the other, "I shall not forgive you ! Indeed you have been very naughty, and I do iiot love you !" Not love her ! Not love that frail, beautiful bud, the pride and light of the house? ' Ah, Edith Somerby ! less than human you must be, to. stand there, and say that, with those beseachiiig, tearful eyes upturned to yours ! But Edith was very much vexed Ju3t then, and heeded not the pleading look that she drove away from the sinless little face. She was too much taken up with thinking of her bouqnet. It was one just sent from the greeu-house.nd which she was to wear at a grand ball that evening. So she bent angrily down to the floor, and commenced gathering up the flowers, Jtinally catching hold of the little dog's leg, and pulling him roughly from his hiding-place beneath the sofa, to get those which were in his collar. "Please don't hurt my dog!" said the little Minnie, with a tremulous lip. "He has done nothing naughty !" Though said in the kindest of tones, this still further irritated Edith, and she said, sharply : . "Go into the nursery. You are very gaucy, and I do not love you !" Minnie tried to say something more ; but the swelling In her throat choked her and she went silently from the presence of her sister Edith, to cry bitterly at her thoughtless uctv and her sister's cruel rebuke. Meanwhile Edith busied herself in preparing for the ball. She took a hasty tea apart from the rest of the fami ly, and then went to her room to dress for the evening. At last she was ready, and then grouped the flowers together upon her bosom, not without noticing that the lovliest bud was crushed and broken. At the gate, just as she was stepping into the carriage, she heard a pleading voice behind her, and, looking back, saw little Minnie standing half way down the walk, the bright December moon Khlning full and radiantly down upon her. She had run out bare-headed and slippered, to ask again for her proud sister's forgiveness. Very pretty she looked in the moonlight, her bright hair sparkling in its soft beams. "Please, Edith," said the timid voice, "please say you forgive me before you eo. I am so sorry !" Who but oue bent on gratifying her own pleasure at all hazards, con Id have withstood this second appeal? Yet so will pride and self-love harden even the least obdurate hearts, unless religion sheds ' ' its peaceful - and benig nant influence there to counteract the baleful wickedness of the former, Although her heart softened a little as she saw the frail child standing just the other side of the gate, yet she thought it would not lo to show sisterly feeling now. after the spectacle of the afternoon, and thought, moreover, a little disci- nline was useful; so she only said : "There, there; run in the bouse, Minnie. ; Yon'll catch cold. Don't pes ter me now , about niy forgiveness. You've been very naughty,, and I don't think you have time, to repent proper ly." And with these heartless words, she stemmed into the carriage, the driver closed the door, and away they rattled down the street., Edith did not have the pleasant time that she anticipated. Somehow, a little moonlit face in the graveled walk con stantly appeared between her and the brilliant coruscations of light that flash ed on all sides in the ball-room ; and little childish voice, full of piteous, ten der nleadinsrs. seemed to ceaselessly ring in her ears, and drown the music that swelled around her on all sides. When at last the ball began to draw to ward its close. Edith hailed it with delight, inasmuch as it would enable her to forgive and kiss the little sister to whom she had refused that boon a few hours previous. But she soon recollec ted, with a pang, that she had promised to sro home with her cousin in a distant nart of the cltv. after the ball, and stay a couple of days. Uow long a time that seemed ! How far off was the propitia tion thus placed ! O Christian! remem her your day of grace when It is at hand :: for the time may come when you will beckon in vain for the forgiving angel to draw nigh, and hear a penitent prayer that will be too late ! Edith spent two miserably restless days at the house oi ner cousin, arid then started to seek again the shelter of her own house. She paused an instant at the gate, almost dreading to go in, yet could not tell why. She turned the door-knob rervousiy, yet Hope all the time whispering that Minnie wonld be the first to hear the noise. But no, Where could she be? Where the little form that nsnallv bounded to meet the elder sister? All silent. None to meet her.' Even the kitten, that usually frisked about her in such joy, hardly noticed her: now merely raising its head, and opening Its large, yellow eyes. as ft lav on the lounce. Was she so great a criminal then? Ah, how the conscience lashes the soul when a wrong action has been done ! Poor J-.dith suf fered enough then to have been spared the great retriDution tnat was to iouow If it had not been otherwise ordained. Edith stood still in the middle of the room, listening to the whispering of that dreadful forcooding, wnen anotner door opened, and her mother stepped softly across the threashold. "Ah, Edith!" said she, starting at the unexpected sight.and a soft smile played over features that looked wan and care worn, "I am glad that yon have come, We were lust going to send lor you, "Why ?" almost gasped she. "Is any thing Is Minnie " "Minnie is very sick. The doctor says her life hangs on a very slender thread. .She has the brain lever." "O, how monstrous my wickedness seems to me now 1 Let me see her at once, and ask her forgiveness for " "Alas! it would be useless. She knows no one, and understands nothing said to her." "But I must see her." "Xot now. when you are so di scorn posed. Everything must be very quiet around her." "Hut how long has she been sick?' inouired Edith, in an unsteady voice, "She was taken the very night you went awav. We missed her shortly al ter vou. had gone, and could not find her for a longtime. At last she was discovered quite by accident, sitting under the pine-tree by the gate, sound asleep.

She keeps constantly calling for you, and itedeeciiiiiK yuut iuisc thine- she has done.. 'fir fnro-iveness !" srroaned the un happy Edith. "It is I who should ask hers.

Kentucky Bi.ce Grass Seed. The Observer, some time mco. requested information as to the yield per acre, of Kentucky blue grrass seed Orchard grass seed, and Ked-too grass seeu, to wnicn ... " a . fi W . It. Duncan, oi ionawanua, in., responds as follows : Blue grass in Ken tucky, will yield twenty-.fi v or thirty bushels of seed In the chaff, weighing fourteen pounds to the bushel; usually worth there, fifty cents per bushel. This is the condition in which the seed Is bought and sold. How much clean seed would eive. I cannot say. 1 never knew any one to clean it there, as it is always sown as it is gathered. It . was formally gathersd by hand and stripped with hand-boxes; here Jt Js stripped with one horse, attached to a little sied, in front of which there is some long teeth made of hoop iron and placed near cnoiish together to strip the seeds oft" as the horse walks along. The dri ver rides on the sled, and rakes the seed back as it accumnlates on the teeth, What the yield would be in this State, or in Xew York I cannot say. 1 have never seen a piece of grass kept here for seed ; I do not believe our soil quite as well adapted to blue grass as the soil of Kentucky, yet It does well here when sown wltn oilier grass, in race if, will come in with other grass,;whether sown or not. I suppose the seed is in the soil or among other grhsses. Packing the Soil. In setting out plants on newly-plowed light soils there are few persons who fully aprc- ciate the importance ot making the sou compact about tho roots. More : than two weeks since I had several hundred strawberry plants set out in light, loamy soil, only slijrlitly moist at the time; and although tne planting was carefully done, 1 concluded to try the experiment of rolling the entire surface over plants and all with a heavy iron roller. My head gardener .thought thlswas useless ; but I had it done, leaving three rows untouched. The result shows the ben efit of compressing the soil ; for those in the rolled portion of the bed are alive, while the others are dead, there having been no rain since nlantinar. During uiv exgerience In gardening i have found that, this packing the earth about the roots of recently planted trees and shrubs one of the mot important, but usually most neglected,operanons. it is very ciitncuit to make workmen uo this ; but it should be insisted on by every one who is etting plants. it tanners would use the rouer more on thejr meadows and grain fields, they would And their crops increased far more than the cost of application Whenever the soil is light the roller is needed to make the surface more coin- pact, keep out the drying, hot winds compress the earth against tne seeos anu roots of small grains, and. in compact, clayey lands, the roller should be used to break up the lumps and pulverise the tne surface sou, tliereoy allowing tne young plan an opportunity to grow. The proper manipulation of the soil is one of the operations belonging to suc- ce.-s.stul agriculture and horticulture, or which very tew persons seem to know auytliing. To tell a man that he must make his soil deep, rich and light, and then roll it down, seems to be contradic tory advice : and so it is to those who have no experience in such matters but it is no more uuphilosophical than beating cream to make ope portion more compact and the other a . thin liquid. Raising Tcrkeys, The first and most essential thing after hatching is to keep them in a warm location. It usu ally takes from thirty to thirty-two days ior tne eggs to hatch, as they are batch ed, the hen or the hen-turkey, in which ever case it may be, should be placed In a coop with her young brood. For the first three or four weeks after hatching. care should be taken by the breeder to Keep mem rrom tne arencning sun, drenching rains, and the heavy morn ing and evening dews. Cleanliness of coops should be rigorously - observed ; dry, gravelly land is the most proper pace to keep them on ( avoid all - grass- piats with tne movable coop. The chicks should never be allowed to leave the coop in the morning until the dew is oft the grass ; be sure they are cooped in wet and unpleasant, weather. At two periods ot their lives, young iiirKeys neeu more care man at others, The first Is about the third day after they are hatched, and also when thev throw out what is termed the "red head" which they do at. six weeks of age, This is a very critical period for young turkeys, much more so than at the pe riod of moulting; at this time therefore, their food must be increased, and ren dered more nutritious, by adding boiled eggs,wheaten flour or hemp seed. Mush, made of equal parts of oat and barley meal cooked, is also a good, lieaHli- giving food for a young brood. The crisis of the "red head" once passed, tne birds may be regarded as past dan ger , and exchange the name of chicks for that of turkey poults, and are con sidered as fairly "tougnene.d." ' As we have said before, care should be exercised in the preparation of their rood. Do not feed slop lood of any kind Many breeders retain the old notion of feeding loppered milk, but our advice i.s that it should be scrupulously avoided; it should not be fed under any consider ation. Sour milk, boiled to a thick curd, is good, mixed with Indian meal, season ed with black peper occasionally. They should be fed often, and made to eat up clean what tooci is given tnem netore repeating the feeding. The food should be thrown on the ground not in a trough so that in picking up their food the gravel that adheres to it will aid their digestive organs to perform their functions. Xever feed Indian meal in an uncooked state, for it is lia ble to cake in the crop, causing death in a very short time. Water should be placed in shallow dishes, near the coop, that the young can satisfy their thirst whenever inclined. At ix weeks or two months old the young turkeys may, as a general thing, be considered out of danger trom over feeding, &c, and should then be fed cracked tcorn, boiled potatoes, refuse from the table, and fresh boiled meat, occasionally, In small quantities. The idea of letting turkeys shut tor themselves is an erroneous one and should not be practised in this en lightened age. RELIGIOUS NEWS. There are 11.000 persons in full mem bership within the Methodist Chnrch in Germany and Switzerland. " During 1871. 14,000 Bibles, 10,000 Xew Testaments, 54,000 copies of the Gospels were distributed in bpain. Thebk are said to be 23,000 Protestants in Turkey, representing twelve different nationalities, the greatest number being connected with the American missions. The Baptists in Great Britain number 2-13,293. The increase during the past year was ine memoersnip in Londou i3 34,976. Thirty-nine new churches were formed during the year. In their zeal to exclude sectarianism from the public schools of San Francis co, the framers of a bill which has passed the legislature nave enacted mat "religion shall neither be taught nor practiced ' therein.

The Hindoos are proposing a mission to England, whether to enlighten or to be enlightened does not clearly appear.

The Swiss Times states that Bishop Strossmayer has received from the Pope the requisition to declare positively, within the space of six weeks, whether he will submit to the dogma of the Papal infallibility or not.

Mr. Murray, of Boston, gaye a lecture last week in the Church of the Strangers, subject: "Deacons." v The object of the lecture was to rldieuie the faults ot a class of men which he said was very common In Sew England, and of whom we have heard always as ex isting in other parts ot- the world. Big otry, pharisaism, ignorance, obstinacy and jealousy, were among the prominent traits of tlie men he caricatured apd lashed with severity and wit that enter-: tained the audience greatly- He said that the great majority of deacons ; were a better sort ot men aitogetner, ana jie gave the sketch of peacfln Good heart, as a model Christian. The X. Y. Times' Berlin Correspond ent writes: "Our own Jews have a triumph to record which in this Empire of 'education' is gartlculaily gratifying. A Jewish university, the airq and hope of many years, was opened a week ago in this city. , The opening ceremony was attended exclusively by Jews, and was not, therefore, very- imposing, Jt is impossible to doubt, however, that Judaism has, by the enterprise, made a great stride toward vigorous extension of power in a State of which it s already a prominent constituent. Xo race and no party support one another so steadily as the Jews, therefore the college is sure to be wen attended." A Christian is God's gentleman; a gentleman, in the vulgar, superficial way ot understanding tne word, is the devil's Christian. But to throw aside these polished aud too current counter feits for something valuable aud sterling, the real gentleman snouia ve gentle in everything, at least in everything that depends on himself in carriage, temper, construction, aims, desires. He ought, therefore, to be mild, calm, quiet, ever temperate not hasty in judgment, not exorbitant in ambition, pot overbearing, not proud, not rapacious, pot oppressive ; for these things are contrary to gentle ness. Many such gentlemen are to be found, I trust; and many more would be, were the true meaning of the name borne in mind and duly inculcated. Hare. M. Leon Pilatte says, with the elo quence of truth : - " France Is in peril trom not paying known bPW to govern herself frbni haying lived in Ignorance, from haying treated all religion with contempt, from having been wanting in men who feared God and had no other fear; from having, in one word, been too long Romanist, and never having yet been Christian, That which Jt behooves her henceforward to do is to break en tirely with the past, to renounce alto gether practices of Romanism, and to receive from the Gospel that illumina tion which has been too long denied. On these conditions only will she es cape from the abyss into which Roman ism and despotim combined have plunged her." The last few years have witnessed a most gratifying revival of the spirit of missions m the rrotcstant Episcopal Church. The day of general indiffer ence is now passed away. A proof of this may be found in the stirring char acter of the delegate missionary meeting recently neiu in isnston, and which really forms the religious event of the past month. The proceedings of this meeting extended through several days. being inaugurated by a sermon in Em manuel Church, at the close of which offerings to the amount of five thousand dollars were placed upon the plate. The offerings were, of course, not so remark able for Boston, yet the public services and the discussions, combined with the general animus ot the sneakers and the interest of the congregations drawn to gether, tell beyond all question that the Church really feels fresh tides of life coursing through all her veins. And this meeting was also an expression of the Church. Rightly so, too, since tiie spirit of missions is not the inheritance of any party, section or school, but casts its profound responsibility upon every Christian man. And it was cheering to see this truth recognized in the meeting at Boston, where principles and meth ods were thoroughly ' discussed, and strong appeals made to the individual conscience. Amongst the subjects es pecially considered was that of agencies in connection with the procuring of funds; and while in regard to some as pects of the matter there was more or less division of opinion, the speakers were unanimous in the expression of the conviction that every parish minis ter at least should consider himself a special agent of the church in carrying on its work, for certain It Is that if all felt their responsibility as they should, the necessitiy for other instrumentali ties would at once cease to exist.

I.X1T ROJIIEO. At five minutes past 11 o'clock, June Romeo died. Romeo was the great elephant of Adam Forepaugb's Circus a creature of vast bulk, of many years' duration, of great notoriety, and as well known in Amer ica as the living white-hatted elephant which the Democrats and liberal Re publicans have now got on their hands. Komeo lay down at a quarter past a clock in the morning, and he breathed his last sigh in about two hours. The event was not unexpected. He had been ailing in his lower extremities for some time past, and he had been losing flesh at the rate ot about a hundred pounds a day for a week. Such a dis- strous process ot reduction could not continue long without bringing about its natural result, and so. afrer submit ting to a surgical operation bv Dr. Boyd, who has made a special study ot elephan tine anatomy, the great Komeo shuilled oil his mortal coil, trunk and all, and left it lying in the sawdust for exhUjl- bitlon. The least astonishing part of this per formance was that the biggest elephant in the United States should have to come to Chicago to die. It is pretty well tin derstood by this time that everything startling, everything that wants notori ety, must either start from Chicago or come to Chicago for its final consum mation. The Cardiff Giant was born in Chicago. The great elephant Romeo died in Chicago. The great lire of the century occurred in Chicago. Somehow everything remarkable happens at the tavored spot. Komeo sutrered much am traveled far toaccomplish it, and be suc ceeded, lie died or lock-jaw. 1 he ope ration performed upon his feet may have hastened, out it certainly did not cause his death, and of this fact the owner is pretty well satisfied. The truth., is. Romeo's days were numbered, and noth ing could save him. perhaps, but a more prompt attention to those distressing feet of his, which had been brought in to their diseased condition bv his own uncontrollable temper. huch an interesting subject as this, which has been before the world in va rious public capacities for nearly a cen tury, cannot be allowed to pass away without a htting obituary, and the life and experiences of the deceased would certainly turiush matter enough lor a bulky one. His age was estimated at between eighty and one hundred years and he has traveled over almost every portion of this continent. When one considers that his weight was five ton: and 183 pounds, it is no wonder that he should at last expire of sore feet. He has been kuow every where tor twenty years as the great war elephant, a title which he earned by numerous contacts with his keepers, in which he always succeeded in getting the best ot them Mr. Forepaugh purchased him in 1864 from Mabie, then exhibiting in Dclavan Wisconsin, for $42,500. The latter had him from a native of Calcutta, in which city Komeo was employed as a common workman in a brick-yard, lie was self-made elephant, and came to this country without a dollar in his pocket At the time of his death he was worth $40,000. The deceased may be regarded by those who adopt the Darwinian the ory as a kind of missing link between real estate and aiiiuiai lite, lie partook ot both natures in an eminent degree As real estate he was exceedingly valu able, and as an animal he was exceed mgiy cross, no never maimested any ill temper, however, except to his keep. ers, whom he seems to have regarded as his sworn enemies. He has made way with five of these unfortunate men, and that is his war record. His method of killing was generally to st.like the man down with his trunk aud then place his toot quietly but ttrnily on his breast The keener never knew what was the matter witn nun tin it was an over. Hut Romeo was not only distinguished as a man-slaughterer, lie played prominent, part in some cities as a rioter and on one occasion as a burglar. In 18G5 he broke out in Philadelphia, and raised such a commotion in the Quaker City that the Mayor had to issue orders to have lihnslmt. He had been amusing himsejf by tossing a street car. teaiin up lamp posts, and breaking into houses where children were playing on the door steps. The shooting did not harm him much, nor change his temnerament He shook buckshot from him as the lion shakes tlie dew-drops from his mane, and weut" for a new keeper. One thing wa3 always said In his favor. H was fond of little children, and he mnni- lested great courtesy to strangers. J appears that ho was subject to periodic: fits of insanity, and it was during these "spells" that the violent attacks wer generally made upon his keepers. There are many living here to-day who will remember the time in 1863, when Romeo broke out of his confinement in Chicago and broke into a jewelry store, near the old Matteson House. That was a day of terror to many of ' the children who probably went yesterday with their smau iamiues to take a took at the re mains. On another occasion in 1809, he nappenea to oe passing a place in lnd ana where a party of men were sittin engaged in a game of euchre. Romeo was opposed to gambling, and he very unceremoniously put a stop to the game Dy overturning tne tauie and scatterin the cards in the air. At Columbus. 1866, he wandered into a graveyard and demolished a number of tombstones. But the record of his eccentricities must be left to some future biographer. One of his peculiarities was that he could never be prevailed upon to enter a rail- roau car. i ne nrst time lie was ever known to consent to such a mode travel was this spring, and his keeper looseu upon it as an ominous sign. It was written of Sampson that "the ueau wnicn ne stew at hts death wer greater than those he had slain in h life." In the same way it may be said of Romeo, that the crowds whieh he. drew to look at his carcass were greater than those which came to witness hi; living performances. the: TiorxHFiii. oyster. An observer of the oyster says lie not so stupid as he looks. He can keep his mouth shut, and thereby defy all our arts to wile a secret from him. When spatciug time with the oyster coiues, it is said to be sick or milky. This appear ance is due to the accumulation of spat, which Is, In its earlier stages of develop ment, of a creamy consistence or color. Wheu the spat Is mature, it assumes the appearance of the scrapings of a slate pen cil ; the parent oyster then opens its shell, and a, kind of a mistiness is observable in the surrounding water. This is caused by the myriads of young oysters scatter ed in every direction. Xo sooner are these tiny creatures free from their mother than they1assunie the uost active state of life anil motion, dancing and gyrating up and down in concentric col umns, a midgets play in the evening suiiheams. Under the lens or a micro scope, yon will see how exquisitely these little fellows are fashioned. A pair of tiny fhells, the counterpart of thu.se of tho -matiirer oyster, enclose the yet rudimentary organs, while af fixed to the mantle is a kind of tiny cor onet, composed of minute hair-like ap pendages (cilia). The violent and cease less vibration of these living paddles serves to row the infant oyster rapid ly from the place. Should It lie the destiny of one of tlflse fragile beii.gs to become a steady, well-behaved oyster, it finally settles itself upon some suitable restinsc place, to which it makes itself fast no one very clearly knows how by the un der valve or shell. The bristle-like oars or cilia, no longer of any utilitv, disap pear, and now- a permanent fixture, the baby oyster liegius to grow. At about a fortnight old, it Is not much bigarer than a fair-sized pin's head, aud at three months about that of a split pea. Hav ing attained a year's growth under fa vorable conditions, the young oyster will become as big as au ordinary 'half penny ; while at four years' growth they are considered marketable. iOM; OITT furevkk.
