Thk Stkawbkrby not a Berry. The strawberry is not a berry. It is barely entitled to rank as a fruit.. The deli cious morsel Is simply the receptacle or upper portion of the stem on which the seeds are set. Kvery child know the dandelion, and its silk-like seeds, which in playfulness it blows away in order to see "what's o'clock." Then there is left on the stem a punctured surface like the end of a thimble, ir, now, this dot ted Rurface were to become more cellu lar and swell rapidly as a mushroom swells, carrying along with it the seeds to its surface, we should have a fruit like unto a strawberry.: This is precise ly the way the strawberry is produced. it is one of those instances, wnere a. very mall Ineiilent resulted reinarkiihlv. Tbere are other plants close'ly allied to the strawberry botanists vail them 1 o tentillas which are strawberries in ev erything but this pulpy matter under lying the seeds. The wnoie 1 or tnese plants a very extensive family are ut terly worthless tor any purpose to man Supposing, on the , uarwtman theory, that the strawberry is developed from these dry-headed .fellows, and that the sweet succulence Is the result of some power of evolution, ; it will be seen on how narrow a chance this great change stood. Philadelphia rrcs Are You Kf.ady tor Haying ?

I. n mmata in f .1 n U'.kaf-AVn .! I Xorthern States.. A great loss is often sustained in the quality of the hay, slm ply because tne . naymaiters : were not ready to cut the grass and cure it when the growing crop would have made the largest quantity and the best quality of roaaer. During wet ana lowry aays tne necessary tools should be put in order, so that one can take advantage of the fair weather mow the grass, cure and store it, between periodical showers. The horse-mower should be examined, some of the journals should be removed, and boxes and bearings should be thor oughly cleaned of the gum which can be done by scraping off the heavy accum ulations with a Knue, ana aicerwaras rubbing the polished surface with a woolen ciotn capped in spirits oi turpen tine. Gunv. and. dust - will sometimes cause a lournal to heat and wear out in a short time: whereas if the bearing-box : : : - . . had been kept clean ana protected jrom grit, the machinery would have run easily and smoothly, and would have been serviceable for many years. It will always pay well to keep the knives of a mowing machine so sharp that the edges will cut the grass easily. : When the knives are so dull that they pinch the grass assunder. the mower will require an additional force equal to nearly one- horse power to draw it where the grass will yield three tons of hay per acre. If there are nicks In the edges of some of the knives, let them all be ground away, then whet the edges witn a nne-gritted stone. If knives are put in order in this manner, one horse will mow in heavy grass, with a two-horse machine, with less fatigue, tnan two win araw the same mower, if the kniyes are as dull as we often see them. During rainy weather the apparatus for pitching hay with a horse, or with a yoke of oxen, should be all put in work ing order. If a farmer has not as yet availed himself of such, a valuable labor- saving machine as a horse-pitchfork, now is the time to orderone. nut pur chase the best one which a small boy can handle and pitch a tan of hay to the top of any barn m a lew minutes. Anotner important jao ior a wet uay is to put the barn in order tor the new- mown hay. , Loose floors should be taken up. the bugs, wire-worms and other ver min should., be swept' away, and salt sprinkled on the upper side of the sills, sleepers and joists, before the tipars are returned to their plapes. Every crack in the upper side -of timbers should be cleaned out and filled with salt, or coal tar, which is better, to repel all vermin. Wire-worms, sow-Dugs, ana many otner pests of the insect tribe, often do serious injury to the beams and sills of a build ing, when they can work between the planks and boards and the frame tim bers. The grain should be removed from the granary, when any portiou of it is infested with the barn weevil, and strong lime should be poured into the crack while the liquid is boiling hot. Brine will promote the durability of the timber and check the propagation of all insects, i . : Procure a few dozen poles to be placed from beam to beam in the hay barn, on which a ton of half-cured hay may be spread, when there are certain indica tions of a heavy . shower- We have known farmers to throw a tan of half- cured hay in the bottom of the mow, then lay a few poles, say two feet apart, on the next timbers above the floor, spread another ton of half-cured hay on them, and continue this system to the top of the barn. After the hay had lain in this way for a week or more, it would be thoroughly cured through, would be as fragrant as prime hay that is made without being injured by rain, and it could be dropnpd easily to the mow and stored for the season. A few such poles will often save more than three times their value in good hay; but if they are not procured before they will be needed, few farmers will neglect their haying to go after them. One of the most impor tant and valuable tools of the larm is a good grindstone in a proper condition to grind a tool true. Ko man can grind a scythe, mowing machine knives, or. any other edge tool correctly and true to a uniform edge, on a stone that bobs up and down and wabbles like a "drunken carriage wheel." The periphery of ev ery stone should be as true as a millstone. If the stone is not hu-ig true, drive the journal out of the eye aud re-hang it. A man having only a moderate share of ingenuity can fit up a stone in one or two hours. Kvery grindstone that stands in the sunshine should be coverea when not in actual use, with a hood or wide board, as alternate wetting and heating in the burning sun ot summer will ren der some stones too hord, while others . . , 1 . 1 ,. a -111.. , , will cracit mruugu tiie iinuuie, atiiu imge pieces will disintegrate. Repairing out-buildings should not be deferred until they are half filled. If the barn boards have shrunk to such an extent that driving storms wet the tim bers, get a cold cliisel made out of an old file, cut off till the nails, joint the boards and nail them on again. A join er who is not more than half a mechanic, with a boy to assist, can strip one side of a large barn, joint the boards, and nail them 011 in a day. See that the earth does not rest against the sills or any other timber.' When the barn is empty, then is the most convenient time to "level up" the foundation, or to raise tlie entire superstructure a few inches or a foot, so that the accumulations of the manure yard in the winter will not he constantly worki ng towards the doors, rather than away from the building. - A letter from Wiesbaden, dated 31st I March, savs : "To-day the first Old OMr " "i", fi.thnli divine wrnre in this town took b""'"' "'' "- "d r,l.in the Kvnrplifal flhnrch.

To Remove Ink Stain from Furniture. Pour some lemon juice on the ink spot and rnb it well with the finger, men wipe it off with a cloth, and if the stain has not entirely disappeared apply more lemon juice. Continue to do this until the stains are removed. To Keep Ice. Make a double pocket of strong woolen "cloth, no matter now coarse and faded it is.

Take a pan or shovel, with burning coals, and sprinkle upon inein common Drown sugar, and hold the wounded part in the smoke, In a few minutes the pain will be allayed, ana recovery proceeds rapiaiy. 111 a case under our observation a rustv nail had made a bad wound in the bottom of the foot. The pain and nervous irrita tion was severe. This was all removed by holding it in the smoke for fifteen minutes, and the patient was able to re sume his reading in comfort. It has been tried often, with the same excellent result. Last week a patient had a fl.nger nail torn out with a pair of ice-.topgs. It became very painful, as. waa to, have been expected. Held In. sugai; sinoke for twenty minutes, the pain, ceased, and it promises speeuy recovery . Cough Syrups.

In tlie morn ing put into a Kettle two anarts of water ahandtuiof licorice root, split up, and a quarter of a pound of raisins, broken 111 half. Let them boil until the strength is thoroughly exhausted ; then ' add the flax seed which has been wreviouslv soaked. Let all boil half an hour or more, watching and stirring that the mixture may not burn. Then strain. and add lemon juice and susar. 2rl. Boil an ounce of flax seed in a quart of water for half an hour; strain, and add to the liquid the juice of two lemons and a half pound of rock candv. If the cough is accompanied by weakness and loss of appetite, add half an ounce of powdered gum arabic. Set this to sim mer for half an hour, stlrriits it occa sionally. Take a wineglassful when tlie cough is troublesome. ' u, '. ' ; Varnished FurnUureThia may be finished off so as to look equal to the best French polished wood, in the fol lowing manner : Take two ounces of tripoli, powdered, put into an earthen pot, with just enough water to cover it ; then take a piece ot white flannel, lay it oyer a piece of cork or rubber, and pro- ceed to polish the varnish, alwavs wet- ting it with tripoli and water. It will be known, when the process Is finished, by wiping a part of the. work with a sponge, and observing whether there is a fair even gloss. When this is the ense take a bitofniutton suet and fine flour. an 1 clean the work. The above process is suitable to other varnished sur fa'es. LAST WINTER. In the New York Erenina Post of Thursday is a two column article on the extraordinary character of the winter of 1871-2. We "know something of it by experience in these parts, and something more oy newspaper reuuing. xui n is only on" a survey of the whole that the fact is brought home, to us tnat tne win ter was the most remarkable for half a century pan. Its severity began early and continued late. Its first touches were felt In October As early as Novem ber 5 there was skating in Bellast, Maine, with unprecedented cold. Navigation closed on the Baltic Sea on the 10th of November. On the 13th and 14th of the same month a snow storm extended over all the West and South m this country as far as Tennessee. By the 15th, frost and ice reached Georgia, and on the 16th, frost and ice lay oyer South Carolina, with a winterish temperature. From the 13th to the I7th, a cold and furious storm raged from the Rocky Mountains across the continent and ocean to Nor way. "The wind on Mount Washington reached the astonishing velocity of 150 miles an hour, exceeding by 20 miles an hour the greatest velocity ever before re corded. On the 24th of November the murcury fell in Montana to 15 below zero. Ice was formed in Iondon at the same time, and three skaters broke through it and were drowned, and 17 persons perished with the cold. On the 28th of November, on the North Pacific Railioad, the murcury fell to 28 below zero, and the Penobscot and Connecticut Rivers froze over earlier than for 27 years before. Snow fell at Memphis, By the last of the month all the Rivers of Canada aud of the Northern States were frozen up tight. In Nebraska, where usually but little snow falls, it was two feet deep, and scores of people were snow-bound and frozen to death At Little Cottonwood, Utah, the last half of the month was a continuous storm of snow, sleet, wind, thunder and lightning, and all winter snow lay ten feet deep on a level. On December 1st an awl ul J or- wester swept over the great lakes and States adjacent at a velocity of 35 to 38 miles an hour, cuttiug like a sickle. In Nebraska whole families perished, and the wild buffalo, tamed by the terrors of the winter, crouched under the lee of the long 1 reign t trains that were snow- bouud on the plains, seeking at any risk a shelter from the Arctic blast. In Utah such cold had never before been expe rienced. In Dakota the intensity of the cold was horrible. At Fort Benton the nierwiry went down to U9 , and the wild beasts of that region were frozen to death in great numbers. In France the temperature exceeded in seventy anything known since the year 1788. tn Fans the meremy tell to 21 below aero. Switzerland was .sharply invaded, and the vines in all the Rhine Valley were -badly frozen. At every port in China the cold was unusually severe. Ice appeared at Canton, and there was-skating "at -Shanghai. At Delhi, India, the cold was described as ntense. in all the JSorm ot India it was remarkably cold ( In Scotland, on the other hand, there was no wirter. while Lake Chamnlain froze over earlier and remained closed longer than known for a hundred years before. In California rain fett in un preeedented quantities. None remem bered so wet a season. v line tne Jan uary snow blockade and intense cold held two hundred cars in their gripe on tbe union va,eie icoad, london was visited with a tropical storm of great fuvy.: Snow fell at Savannah, Ga., for the first time in 13 years. February and March were no less re markable than November, December and January. The month of March waa the mast outrageous one of the whole. Prof. Loomis, of New Haven, pwnowneed -Vr the coldest March since the year 1772 a term of one hundred years. Our Space does, not allow of going through the whole history of the storms and cold of February and March. The writer sums up the curiosities-of the subject with this remark : Sicilian d. lvincr iia far nnrt.b a T.nlrn. dor (between 55 and 60 decrees 'i. wrs I without frost all winter, only haying, instead, wet and sloppy ' weather., At Edinburgh ' this mildness was termed "unexampled in the present generation." Vegetation came surprisingly early. The first week in March thft pear trees were covered with blossoyns, the goose berry bushes were i teaf, and the earth covered with grass. The journals called it the "almosi unprecedently mild sea son." ; ... In contrast with this the spring in the United States and Canada was three and four weeks behind the season of last year. - And if the reader considers the difference between November 1870 and November 1871, and also March 1871 and March 1872, and seeks to learn the cause, he ' will find himself as much puzzled and baffled as he would were he to seek to know the cause of the recent great earthquakes. Altogether we have had a remarkable winter, and there are some features of it which are totally abnormal and unaccountable. JV. F. ISeformer. ' IVOWEN'S BKESS. How shocked wonldthose ladies of our "first, society" be it they knew that their .torturiug. .and ill-formed shoes, on whose stilt-like heels they tilt and sutler, fto Paris shop-keeper would ever offer to a lady. For more tnan two years American ladies have walked the public streets with conspic uous chains and locks, or flaunting bows and ribbons, attracting the attention of every passing gazer, solacing themselves by the thought that it was "perfectly fcTeneb." If so, it was a costume that no French lady would wear on the pub lic pavement. The dress of the French lady is artistic, simple, faultless fault less often because' it irf simplicity itself. She may . wear, brilliant colors in her drawing-iooni and in her carriage- never on the street. "When she walks she wears black or frrav. and it, ne-ver drags on the street. - When she goes, to j church she wears the same colors is af- t ways attired in the simplest wanner This is true also of Italy, la. the Sty -tine Chapel, Rorne, 110 lady tun enter unless attired in black, with . no eowr ingon her head but a vail of the as.me line.

It is only when the "woman of forty dresses like the girl of twenty that she looks absurd. A French married lady never wears a round hat; an English maiden never at enure. Yet everywhere American matron?,, with faces lined and scarred, may be seen with staring jockeys, set on their gray heads like helmets, berlowered antibefesitheredjand more fantastic than the ones worn by their little daughters of ten. Flannel, and linen, and muslin are worthy ol" their princes and prlncess , es abroad, but are by no means line enough for the little princes and prin cessess American. All of which is not Frencii.thongh to be "perfectly French" has been the alpha and omega of our alphabet in dress. UNCONSCIOI'S IFf.tE.'VCIW. ; .
