CHILDREN'S COLUMN Dick and Bob. BY ACOCST BKM.. flCK- and Bob were two ot the greatest friends that ever was among boys ;they went to school together, held their heads over the same Lutiu Irrnmmar, DacKeu eacn otherin nil gnmes.and ast hey grew older went off rambling together In the woods and on the shore. Sometimes they would separate on these excursions, but always kept witmn Hearing oi eacn otu er. for every little while Bob would shout "Dick,' as loud as he could, and Dick would call "Bob" in return. Bob had a p;ission for botany, and was always on the lookout for new leaves and flowers ; so this took them very of ten to the woods. Sometimes Dick would stav by it brook, fishing for trout, while Boh would be off in the distance collecting specimens, or perhaps Dick would be under some tree reading orday dreaming. . But every once in a while he would call loudly "Bob," and then Bob would shout back "Dick," so they knew they should not lose each other One day they were down by the river bank, and not far from the ocean. DU k wanted to go bathing, but Bob said he had rather hunt for specimens ; so they separated. Bob disappeared up the Dank among thu rocksy on ths way to a little wooded copse. Meanwhile Dick ire- pared for his bath, aud was soon plung ing in the cool salt water. How refresh in" it was : he longed to be able to swim but had never tried to do so alone. There was a larre rock out in the stream a rod or so, and he tried to reach that by walk ing throuzh the water. ' This he sue- ceeded iinloing, though at the last the water was fairly up to his chin ; but he caught hold of a projecting rock, and so swung himself around into a shallower part. He explored the rock, on the out er side, gathered a handful of little shells to take back , plungeu ana noatea in tne water, wished again that lie coum swim and managed to use up half an hour or more, on the edge of this island rock. At last he was ready- to go back to shore: but on turmug to that side or the rock, he found to his surprise that the tide had been steadily rising, and now the water was several niches deeper than before. - "This won't do," he said to himself "I can't walk back now anyhow. must try to swim just a few strokes till I can get footing." Ue . lia-1 - often heard directions for swimming; and was quite sure he could support himself just long enough to get wneve ins teet count toucn ooiioin. - J "Bob would laugh at me outrageously if he came back and found me here wait ing for the tide to turu. ' Besides I'm jrettiusr-chilly 1 must start right off." So WOrkiug his way to the end of the rock nearest shore, he let go bravelv an tried to strike out with his hands aud feet.' But somehow he failed iu the very lirst motions, and down he sank, poor Dick, down to the river's bottom. He knew that he was sinking, his sca pes did not desert him; he knew that he would rise three times and in these times must) try n ml saYeiiimscll'., Up be came nsain for a moment's glimpse of shore and slcvvand in that moment he shouted with ail his might, "Bob!" And the answer came ringing back from over the high banks, "Dick !" Then he sank again, but rose for the second time, and cried out in the extrem ity of terror on his friend : "Bob! Bob!" And the clear, hearty answer came promptly back : "Dick!" '.'O,' thought Dick, "he does not know that I am drowning!" And as he rose again for the third aud last time, he called out in piteous agony with a voice like a shriek: "Bobl Bob!" "Dick!" shouted Bob in return,think iig it was strange he should call soolten and he began, slowly retracing his steps, Meantime poor Dick sank down' into the very jaws of death. With a shudder ho saw 'the coldr-green wall of water closing above him and pressing him down.. His mind seemed to grasp every fact, every circumstance of his situation, and he lay upon the sandy bottom thinking almost calmly of death. He thought how Bob's heart would break when he came joyously back to find his friend drowned, and would think too late what his cries had meant. He watched with a curious sensation the lit tle ; 11 sh in the water swimming about him, he could see the sea weeds waving to and fro. At last he turned his eyes upon the sand around him, with stones bedded in it here and there, and a sort of growth like rushes springing up around His strength was almost gone, he ex pected to die but the thought came over him like a clear course of reasoning why should he not seize those stones, those rushes with his hands, and so pull along a little nearer shore. He reached out feebly enough at first, but when he felt something firm to his touch, he grasped it with desperation, a wild hone sprang up iu his heart, aud he began a race wltu ueatti. L.aoorously he clutch' ed at one thing after another aud drag ged nimseii uioug, surety iiiougn siowly toward . tne snore. i ue water erew shallower, and the sunshine reached him brightly almost there ! He raised him self and saw the shore, the trees, and the water was not more than two feet deep above him, but he had no strength now to get to his feet, no strength to struggle more. But a step came bounding down the bauk, there were plunging feet in the water, and Bob raised his friend quickly up, and bore him on shore. There he lay, faint, almost senseless; but Bob rubbed him vigorously, and thumped him with a good will, as he had read how to do in such cases, He turned him over to let the water run from his mouth, and still chafing him, soon had the pleasure of seeing Dick's eyes open, and the color come back to his face. So Dick was saved, but it was a nar row, and fearful eseape and Bob never thinks without horror, of how near he came to leaving his friend to drown alone, while answering so thoughtlessly those cries of despair. AGBlCTTLTURJaX. An old lady, a Miss Hough, residing Twickenham, Ens-land, found her chief pleasure in her hives; but her cherished favorites, tire occupants, have literally stung her to death, it is saul that bees, when ewaruiiug, often choose to alight upon the human head. If let alone they choke, and if disturbed, sting the owner to death. It is possible to es cape, if the person assailed has great courage, quickness, and presence of uund, by sweeping the bees gently but nrnily and dexterously into a hive. Miss Hough got frightened, and tried to dash off her tormentors as she might; out tney stung lier so severely mat be fore a doctor could be brought she was dead. Save the Sukup fuom Dogs. We have frequently recommended bells one secured to the neck of every sheep as a certain protection against dogs. A keep er of sheep in one of the New England states, writes, that in his locality every sheep and lamb must be belled to save them from docs and wild cats, winca latter will take a lamb quietly, not dis turbing the nock as much as dogs, ihey rarely visit the same nock or neighbor hood successive nights. I know two docks kept iu adjoining pastures; one had a bell on each sheep and lamb these were never disturbed: Uie other without bells were destroyed by the cats. Driving the flock home and folding withiu a few feet of the house proved no protection. I bad a small flock kept be side a thoroughfare, which would be chased by the passing dogs out of the lot and so inghtened tnat l coum not keep them without fetters, when the dogs would get them down and tear them. 1 bought bells all strapped and buckled for 12c. each ; put one on each sheen and lamb, which so frightened the dogs that the sheep became very daring, and 1 Had no iurtner u on uie irom tue dot's. Sheen killers and lamo stealers are usually thieving cowards. They know better than to touch the harmless flock. Hence, when every sheep begins to rattle a bell, the sneak thieves will think more of skedaddling away from the sheepfold tlmnot drinking the gmoic- in! blood or the luortensive sneep. i tie price of one fat sheep will purchase- a chime of bells that win save a nocic. HOW TO IMPROVE THJC FERTILITY OF thk Soil. There are not less than three ways by which the productiveness of most soils may be improved so that tiiey will yield satisfactory crops of products adepied to their quality, provided the climate favors the cultivation of the kind of crop raised. One way of improving the fertility oi lami is oy negiecuug to cultivate it by allowing vegetable arrowth to mature from year to year and to decay where the plants grew. . This is nature's own process lor rendering barren soils fertile and rich ground still more productive. It is here where the eminent value of noxious weeds for ag ricultural purposes is disclosed, wheu the farmer neglects the proper cultiva- tion of his fields, it has been wisely or dered that weed shall take possession and. by a slow and tedious process, ac complish in an age what an intelligent tiller of the soil is able to periorm in a few years. Hence, we perceive why the species of noxious plants are so nuiner ous, and so much more hardy and pro lific, than those plants which are culti vated for crop products, weetis are trreat blessing in disguise, as every oue from the little chick-weed up to the pes tiferous Canada thistle and couch grass (Triticum repent), plays au admirable part of an ameliorator of the soil. If a farmer fails to cultivate his land prop erly, weeds come m to supply the den ciuiicv. Grass of all kinds always ex erts an ameliorating influence on the fertility ot the sou, as tne roots lay noiu of the inorganic and insoluble suDstan ces that are locked up iu the barren at oms of earth, dissolve aud digest them and appropriate the minute-particles to the development or tlieir own roots, stems ami leaves, which, after they have decayed, furnish avauawe plant food for promoting the growth of crop- plants, which must have their pabulum supplied directly or prepared by other vegetation having the power to feed np- ou the granite, mica, limestone, qnariz aud stubborn soil which niav he within reach of the roots, Iu the foregoing manner the Western prairies have been improved in fertility lor ages p Rain water whk'.h i one of - the most powerful solvents in nature-frost, heat, vegetable growth and decay, and sweep ing conflagrations, have all been in op eration, every rear, preparation both or ganic and inorganic materials, reducing them to a soluble condition, and storing the particles in the soil for the purpose of developing useful plants which will yield necessary food for man and beast. Another more expeditious way oi lm proviug the fertility of a cultivated soil is, by employing mechanical appliances tor accomplishing in a tew years, in con. uection with the opperations of nature, wlmt she alone would scarcely be able to perform in ages. For example, there are inexhaustible stores; of phosphoric acid in a given soil, which so hrraly held in the stubborn clods that the particles are not in a soluoie. condition, ilence they are not availatJle bv the roots of uselul crop-plants. Thegrain of wheat, tor example, is composed, chemically of forty-six parts in every 100 of phos phoric acid and zv.7 ot pouts n. aow then, if these substances be absent, or i they are. abundant in the soil, althougl in an insoluble condition not in a con dition to feed the wheat plants it would be folly to attempt to cultivate wheat on that soiLuntil its productiveness has been improved. The elements of fertil. ity may be in the soil, or the fertilizing resources ot the larni may De amply sut- hcient, if properly employed, to develop the productiveness so that every acre will vield a bountiful crop of grain. The plough and other implements or husbandry frequently operate like magic in develping the productiveness of a soil. Wherever the steel coulter, the shire, the mold board, the cultivator teeth aud the harrow teeth are brought in contact with the coarse particles- of earth con taining plant-food: the stubborn atoms are reduced to a fine powder, so that the ram. the burning heat ot summer and the disintegrating influences of the frosts of winter set the vast stores of phos phoric acid and potash free; yet, the particles win De retained in the soil un til the wheat plants throw out their numerous roots through the soil and collect such substances as may be avail able. Iu every 100 parts of wheat straw there are 12.14 potash and 67.88 parts of silica. The foregoing figures furnish the intelligent tiller of the soil something of an idea as to the requirements of land iu order to produce a crop ot wheat. If these subtances are not present, the J ami may produce a diminutive growth ot wheat plants; but the product will not be a bountiful crop of fair grain. In addition to the mechanical crushing and grinding of a soil, its productiveness can be rapidly developed by cultivating occasionally a crop of red clover, the roots of which will prepare a large amount of valuable' plant food, for the cerealia, while the leaves will collect a generous supply of available pabulem from the atmosphere. Then, if the crop be led to domestic annuals, and the ac cumulations of their appartmcnts be re turned to the soil where the crop was produced, the acids and the alkalies in the manure will exert a still further ameliorating influence in developing the productive character of the laud. Al though no element of fertility will be added to a ton of clover hay, or a ton of wheat straw by alio wi ug it to be consumed and digested by domestic animals, yet, if all the liquid and solid portions be saved with care and be judiciously ap plied to the land, the dressing will ex ert a stimulating influence on the 'soil, which would not have been felt If the crop had been permitted to decay where it grew. -These facts will indicate why n soil can be renovated and the fertility maintainea more satisiactorny and at less expense by making beef, pork and mutton, saving and applying all the ma nure of the stock, than to attempt to keep the land fertile by any other means, ex cept where the natural resources of a farm are inadequate to meet the require, merits of the crops cultivated. In certain localities, where there are inexhaustible deposits of sulphate of lime (gypsum; Deus ol phosphatic macN rial, marl, peat, limestone and produets of the sea, the productiveness of laud may be maintained by the employment of one or more of the foregoing fertiliz ing substance,- as the character of the soil may seem to require. One grand and fundamental principle must ever be borne in mind, that ou most soils the available plant-food is exhausted more rapidly, thau it can bo pyermred, unless a lair equivalent lor every crop be r? turned to the fields in the form' of some etiieient fertilizer.

Observer. , . - A missionary visited a poor old woman living alone in a city attic, mid whose scanty pittance of half a crown a Week wad scarcely sufficient for her bare sub sistence. He observed in a broken tea pot that stood at the window, a straw berry plant growing. He remarked from time to time how it contiuned to grow, and with what care it was watch ed aud tended. One day he said : "Your plant nourishes nicely you will soon have strawberries upon it., 4lO, sir," replied the woman, "it is not for the sake of the fruit that I prize it; but I am too poor to keep any living creature, and it is a great comfort to me to have that living plant, for I know it can only live by the power of God : and as I see it live and grow from day to day, it tells me that God is near." "Johnny, come here," said Dr. Fry to his little boy, who was playing on the carpet in the (lining room; "here is an apple for you." It was so large that he could hardly grasp it. Dr. Fry then gave him anoth er apple which filled the other hand. "Here is another," said he giving the child a third. Little johnny tried hard to hold it be twen the other two but could not suc ceed; it rolled away across the floor. On seeing this he burst into tears. "See," said Dr. Fry to a lady who was present, "here is a child with more than he can enjoy, and yet not satisfied My child is just like us all. We are ever seeking to possess more and more of the world s treasures, and yet we are never satisfied. Oh J-that we were equally in earnest in 'grasping the gromise of the uospei.' " Rev. J. V. R. Talmage, D. D., the honored. ...missionary oi' the. Reformed Church at Amoy, China, with his wife and son, arrif eu in this, country by wav of England, last week. Dr. Talmage nrst went to unina in tst7, and, with two or three brief intervals, has been la boriously tiugaged. la prosecuting the mission which was first started by the lamented David Abeel, to whom he has beeu a worthy successor. .No one of the foreign missions in China has been more eminently , blessed with the effusions of the Holy spirit and with the extension of the work by nativeagency. From the island of Amoy, Christiau converts have gone to the main land and established centres of influence, which have grown into Christian cnurcnestnat are now in creasing in numbers and strength. The Christian Intelligencer, in announcing the return of Dr. Talmage, savs : "We trust that his presence in this country at this time will affect favorably the mis sionary spirit of our church. It is a re proach to us that aupropriatious should be reduced, and . we hope the words' of Dr. Talmage will awaken a new interest iu the caqsu. May he be proved the In strument ot Providence to carry the Church back to the ground it has aban doned." Surely, a church that has had under its care missions that have been so signally blessed of God, should not De backward to their support.

Our Assem bly again held out the olive branch to the independent Synod of Missiouri and to the Southern Presbyterian Church. The Southern Presbyterian Church, at the late meeting of their Assembly, and the General Synod of the 'Reformed (Dntch) Church, sent out tendrils which promise to clasp each other in loving bonds. The Reformed (Ger man) Synod of the West, by Rev. Dr.' Williard, proposed formal organic union to the General Synod of the Re formed (Dutch) Church with his Church and his advances met a hearty response. These movements have a basis of spirit ual life, and will grow. Alienations and divisions are only inflammations which must be temporary, whether they terminate by resolution, suppuration or death.

A"traveled gentleman" says the proper way to boil fish is, after eviscerating it, to sew it up in a linen Dag and put it into not water containing a little salt, wnen ooue tike out, and in cutting the threads of the sack down the back of the fish, cut the skin of the fish, so that in taking off the cloth, the skin comes oft with it. leaving the fish "hist delicious." Seal ing the fish before cooking it, he regards as very bad economy. Fireproof and Water-proof Cement.- Take two parts of finely silted unoxi- dized iron tilings mix them with oue part of perfect ly dry and finely powdered loam, and knead the mixture with strong vinegar until a perfectly homo geneous, plastic mass is lormeu, wnen the cement is ready for use. It must be made as wanted, for it quickly har dens, and once set is never ht tor use again. This cement effectually resists fire and water. Method to Fix Pencil and Carbon Draw ings upon- Paper. In order to acomplish this the paper having the design is soaked on the back with a solution of bleached shellac in alcohol. It is nee essarv not to have too concerned a so lution, but have it so as to flow easily on the paper, render it transparent, and leave, after the evaporation of the alco hol, no spots on it.

Preservation of Eggs. Eggs may be preserved tor any length of time by ex eluding them from the air. One of the cleanest and easiest methods of doin this, is to pack them in clean dry salt, in Darreis or nips, una to place them in cool and dry situation. An old ship master says, that he lias eaten eggs thu: pcrserved that were a twelvemonth old and that had been some months aboan ship in a tropical climate, aud vet retai all the peculiar sweetness of uew laid eggs.

We saw a novel experiment tried a few days ago which in its results is not unlike the ac tion of a sand blast upon glass. A 1-2 inch tin tube, six feet long, was mounted at an angle of 5 degs. This tube was sup plied, on its lowest end, with a nozzle of 1 1-2 inch diameter. The tube was filled with emery powder. A sheet of double thick window glass was placed with its plane at a right angle with the tube and within two inches of the nozzle. A plu was withdrawn from the nozzle aud the emery discharged from the tube. The operation was repeated three times in eighteen minutes. The result was the drilling of a hole through the glass and the wearing away of quite a portion of it, iu fish tail shape, below the hole where the emery passed down the in cline of the glass into a receptacle. The position of the glass wns then chan"cd and a piece of thin sheet lead? having a hole ot star shape cut through it was placed on the glass with the hole oppo site the nozzle of the tube. The result was a clear star shaped hole through the glass, without marring the lead pattern Iu the least. C. H. Wheeler, BOOTS and SHOES.
