moment before ft group of boys in angry

playing, and the quarrel had arisen con

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

and now, while he gazed, a dim peroep-

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
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

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-

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
When all was still, at dead-midnight.
John slipped out of bed, dressed himself

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

the sky. Xt gave mm; somenow strengtn

of the city where he hoped to obtain some

found his way correctly. He had.no

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
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- ,

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

.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

at the end of that time they were sent to

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-

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

ingly useful for keeping flsh, meats, etc.

The influence of electrical action 1s a
question, entirely new to the diarys pub

themselves for our consideration. When

or .when the state of the atmosphere in

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 ,
