The Oak Tree.
r T. M. CALPOK. IT A RRKf.LLNG about an acurn ! forhonie, my laua- lne ! ed. iS learn a. better lesson ,' saiti a line-looking horseman, riding through New England village, and pausing a moment before ft group of boys in angry altercation They were using acorns in stead of marbles at the game they were playing, and the quarrel had arisen con cerning a string belonging to the com mon stock. Abashed by this reproof, the boys dispersed.- One of them, a stout, hearty lad of fourteen, who had been most for ward in resenting the insolent appro priations of the rich man's son who had broken nn the fame, looked wistfully fifrw th receafnr fliure of the horse man and then took the path leading to the ruined mill. While he switched off ruthlessly the bright beads of the golden rod. wnl kin ? swiftlv ftlonsr. be muttered, "What lesson can be learnt from an oak tree'' : -.' The chance expression had taken deep hold of his fancv. When he -came in Might of it, he paused and gazed long and intently at the noble tree towering up against the Woe of the sky. - He had came to learn a lesson of the oak-tree, and now, while he gazed, a dim peroep- tiott of Hieiuignunojwet lite wen ciawnea unon vouthtul John Marston. The boy noted, too, the well-worn path by which people and cattle came tor shelter fron the bnrniag glare of the sun to its friendly shade. He saw the flotffca of birds- flitting joyously in its branches. .So it baa not been content with looking grand and majestic s it had been useful likewise. . .And kere ; Johr Marston sighed long and heatlly. How could he, a poor boy without money or friends, ever make for himself in the busy, selfish world a place like the noble, commanding position of ;. the oak-tree? And then presently he smiled thoughtfully. Learn a lesson, from the oak-tree. Why here it was, to be sure. It had been a tiny sapling once, and had grown slewly , and patiently, -thankfully accepting what dew, and air, and sunshine bad been proportioned out to it, and making themo3t of each. How the wind, which : now had scarcely power to stir a single bough, had swayed and bowed the ten der twig of the sapling; but silently, patiently, perseveringly, it had risen against all obstacles, and there it stood, the king of trees, that grand old oak. . The boy's breast was heaving. ; The twiar he had' held Idlr in his Angers dropped from them. His eyes took a far-searching, serious look,- . The latent . eagerness. of his-character sprang to life as if bv Biasric. "I see." said he. slowly, and a little hoarselv. "if I keep on In the track beat out here I shall be but a dwarf at best. 1 must aro awav." As he spoke the words he turned and walked swiftly back to the highway, and : weut on to bis own-home. Poor John ! it was not a happy home, thouzU there never was a boy who loved ' and honored his mother more truly han he. It was not the weather-beaten old house falling to decay, nor the poor furnishing, nor. the shabby clothing, nor the scantily supplied food that was the sorest grief to John and his pale, patient mother, but the bitter shame of a father's anzry.iuibruted face and reel lug' figure; for the house was the home. of a drunkard. "John heard t'ie railing voice as he en tered the rard. and turning back hasti ly he went into the field and flung him self npoo the ground. It was than be took from his pocket a crumpled piece of paper, and with bis broken pencil wrote hastily : . Diub Mothbr: I am going away. only hinder you now. I am going to be a better boy and be a item to you. lion : fret, about me, please, darling mother ; believe I can take care of myself. . And , presently I'll come back to take care of you. I've oome to tiuoiung oi tins suu- den, but I know it is best. - He folded l carefullv and put it back in his pocket Then he rose, and went into the house. "That night John came to his mother for his good-night kiss just as wbeu .'he was a tiny boy, and thrust his little slip of paper in her hand, asking her not to read It till morning;-" - ---- . She knew..-that something unusually exalting was in the boy's wind by the glistening eye and tremulous lip, a kissed him fondly many times. "I will read lt ln the morning," she dald, "and we will talk over whatever it is tou are troubled about." Poor John! his heart swelled at the thought) of what- the morning might bring; but his earnest resolution was in nowise chaneed- Heknew he could hot obtain his father's consent, and that his mother would not 'dare allow him wgo without It. When all was still, at dead-midnight. John slipped out of bed, dressed himself carerniiy,. ana swung nimseit as noise lessly as possible from ins low winuow. Only the pale starlight saw him stand ing, looking wistfully oact, taKing a farewell of the borne which wa very dear-to him for all its shame. Then - with a stifled sob he turned again toward ' the highway, but first 1 he gave a long, lingering glance toward the oak-tree whoae tall top was dimly defined against the sky.

He had.no definite ideas.- but was ready to accept atv occupation that should otter,: A very simple incident decided -the- matter for . him, as well as changed the tone of hi whole life. " He was passing on tle sidewalk before a large . hotel,; when; a tall, dark, pro fusely whiskered man camenastuy uown the flight of stone steps,, shouting while lie held tortn, a sroau portmanteau : '.f Joe. Joe, you rascal, where are von?" No one answered. John's quick mind divined the situation. 'Yon r man is gone- sir, and you want the portmanteau-carried, Wouldn't I do as well ? I 'd be very ca ref ul . ' ' - - The gentleman lookedt him very attentively- with his keen, sharp eyes ere he replied : "Why yes, my lad, you'll do as well, I suppose. Carry it to Long Wharf, ship Falcon, and wait there till I come." Now ' John knew no more about the wharves than a-babe, but he had a quick wit and sharp eyes.-- "I've got a tongue in my head, "quoth he, Inwardly : "aud if I'm civil In ask in", people will tell me the way." And he found the wharf very easily, and soon mada out the the ship. . He did not know exactly how to manage about getting e-n board, and so remained quietly .on the wharf. ,- - Presently one of the sailors on board spied him out, or the portmanteau may lie, , and leaping down to the wharf he began conversation- with John, conn pletely dazzling the- mind of the simple country boy with his wonderful stories and descriptions of foreign lands, and the glories and delights -of seafaring life. - ' "4- , Xeveithcleas John kept fast hold of the oak -tree In mind, and his very practical question related to wages, treatinenfcand promotion. :' He did not me:m to climb those tall, graceful masts, unless they lifted Aim upward in his strnggle for a place In the world, as well as raised him above the swimming waves. He was Jeltgbted to learn that he could earn-more than board and clothing even as cabin boy, and when he teamed that the captain of the Falcon was the sole support., jof widowed mother and two voting lady sisters, his heart leaped for joy, as though he had . already-. -pawed .throngh.aho hard hard routine of ship. life,, and won his place in the cabin of a. nob W ship, able to keep his dear, patient mother In peace and plenty. , .TO B CONTINUED.. a. wah AGRICUJLTU1&AX.

My Calla Lilliks. It seems strange that these beautiful flowers are not more frequently seen in the flower-garden du ring winter. Probably the fact that fhmsts so frequently place one as a cen ter flower of a handsome bouqut, ana in other wavs use them as varieties, charg- ine lush imces for tneui, tuts given me impression that tbey are as difficult to raise in perfection as they are beautiful and fragrant- On the contrary, how ever, the Calla is very easy of culture. and will amply repay the little attention which any lever of flowers will readily bestow noon It. Few water it sufficient- lv. yet care must be taken lest the earth becomes mud from too much water. My experience with this flower has been as follows: Two years since a friend gave me an offset, which, planted in the open border during-the summer, was quite a lare Dlant bv fall, when it was removed to my dining-room window, That win ter It did not Dioom ; out alter spending last summer again in the open air, it beautifully reward ea me Dy a prom slon of flowers during the whole winter, taetn? the larsest. most oeantiim. ana most fragrant of my house plants.

C. W. H. As iuteligent farmer, who is building new house, wishes to know the best color for painting it. It Is a two-stery bouse, or moderate pretensions, wun out few trees of much size, In answer to bis inquiry,' we would recommend any neutral .tint, not too dark, which may suit :h ini best. If a cool drab color, it should not pass too much toward cold ness,' which is only adapted to stately mansions; and if warm brown, too much clear yellow or red should be carefully ayoided, Vothing can be worse tnan tne nnpressson ot a sunaec colorud with paint merely for the sake of the color. On tiie contrary, the shade should resemble that of the materials of which the house is built. The. natural color of wood or light stone should not be greatly disguised. - Some writer has said that the dust which lies in the road way may be selected as an approximate rri.liln tt Mm. ehsifla rrlvAii ts thn m.i frit.

Country 6entle- .Effect of Electhicitt oh Milk. Mr X. A. Williard, In his address before the .northwestern uairy men's Association, gave the following interesting facts : Mr. Andrew vross, tne celebrated jsngush experimenter, considered that the .roots and leaves of plants were, in opposite states of electricity, - Some of his ex perlments in this directton are very in teresting.. . He cut two branches from a rose tree. . They were as nearly- alike i as possible; with the same number of bads and both eauallv blown. An arranre- ment -was made , by : which a negative current of electricity was passed through tne otuer. m a tew nours tne negative rose drooped and died, but the posatlve continued-it iresimess -for nearlvr a fortnight; the .- rose itself -became full blown and the buds expanded and sur vived an unusual length of tame.; Again, he was able to keep milk for three-weeks in the hottest weather of .summer, by the application or a current of positive elec tricity. : - i -- On one -occasion be kept fishes under tne electric action lor three months ..and at the end of that time they were sent to a friend, Whose domestic knew nothing of. the experiment, -. Before -the cook dressed them; her -master asked : her whether they, were fresh or not as he had some doubts. . She replied that she Knew they were fresb; indeed, she said sne wouia swear they were alive yester day. When served- at table,, they ap- pearea nice ordinary nsn, out wnen the family attempted to eat them, they were found to- be- perfectly - tasteless ; Uie electricity action had taken away all the essential oil, leaving: the llsb nufhVfor food. However, the process is exceed ingly useful for keeping flsh, meats, etc. tresn and good tor ten days or a 'fort night. Sow this is consistent with our obser vation, and the facta known to every one in the habit ot handling - mllk ' When me ouuiuou oi tne atmospnere , is in a negative electric state, or shows a defici ency of positive- electricity; a state of the weather which we designate as sul try, muggy, close , and, the like; there is always : difficulty in keeping milk sound,' - Even : in - good, healthy milk tiie fungus germs, common to all tuilk, increase and multiply ..with, great rapidity,- producing the common lactic acid fermentation or souring of the fluid but in- case : fungi from decomposing animal or vegetable matter come in con tact witli the milk, rapid decomposition t"kes place ; and we have rotten milk, putrid odors, and floating curds. - The exposing of such curds to the atmosphere as. -well as the aeration of milk - to im prove its condition, are both philoso phical, because these minute organisms of- -fungi -are affected by the oxygeu of the air, which checks their development and multiplication. The influence of electrical action 1s a question, entirely new to the diarys pub lie, t but- It i.-one concerning which I think some useful suggestions present themselves for our consideration. When the electrical, equilibrium is disturbed, or .when the state of the atmosphere in dicates;., a preponderance of .' negative electricity, we .are all made-aware of the fact by Its depressing influences. At such times it is important that we take more than ordinary care in the hand ling of milk ; that It be kept out Of harm ful, odors;: that attention be given to its aeration-, and such treatment be given It as shall be Inimical to the growth and development of fungi. Ana . again the fact that milk may be kept sweet a long time in hotweather by electrical action , will offer a very important suggestion to Inventors; In. the preservation of milk, and perhaps in--the 'improvement of cheese factories.. . I believe that we are only on the threshold of the cheese -making art, and that oa we become more fa miliar with the laws of nature and their application, great progress is yet to he. made in every branch of dairy husbandry.
