There's alittle mischief-making
E18n, who is ever nigh.
Thwarting every undertaking,
And his name is ily-and-by.
What we ought to do this minute,
"Will be better done," be'U cry,
"If to morrow we begin it'
-l'ut it on," says By-and-by.
Those who heed his treaeberou wooing
W ill hi faithless guidance rue;
What we always put off doing,
Cleaxlv, we sh&U never do;
W e shall reach what we endeavor
It" ou Now we more rely;
But unto the realms of Never,
Leads the pilot ity-aud-by.
''What are you good for, my brave little man?

You, with your ringlets a bright as the snn.
All the day long, with your busy contriving.
Into all mischiul and fun you are driving ; .
See if your wise little noodle can tell
What vou are good for. Now ponder it well."
Over the carpet the dear little feet
Came with a patter to climb on my seat;
Two merry eyes full of frolic and glee.
Under their lashes looked up unto me;
Two little hands pressing soft on my face,
Drew me down close in a loving embrace;
Trn rmv li rave the answer so true.
Good to love vow, mamma, good to love you."

I prav thee sing it o'er again,
. And sing it soft and low ;
It is the same sweet, holy strain
I loved so long ago,
W ben in my mother's arms I lay,
A little child at close of day.
It brings once more, the dear home place
Betore my longing eye,
The elms that o'er it interlace
Their shady branchery,
- And the slim poplar, grown so high,
I deemed it touched the very sky ;
The currents, too, beside the fence,
The giant gooseberries rare,
And the great lilac bush, from whence
such fragrance lllled the air;
The gravel, wal ks. so trim and neat,
The grape, that bowered the garder. seat,
The apple tree, whose blossoms swung
My casement far above.
The birds that built therein, and sung
Tbeir matinals of love;
These, and a thousand memories more.
Those half-forgotten tones restore.

To rest her weary chihi.
And pray the Father kind to keep
Unceasing watch around his sleep!
My mother I manv years have spent,

But long as life and memory last
I'll think of all thy love
Thy patient love, thy tender cares.
Thy gentle smile, thy earnest prayers.
And oft, amid life's busv throng.

My wearied care-worn heart will long
For childhood's rest once more

Dick and Bob.
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
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.
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;

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
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.
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.
Hk that walks uprightly before God.
will walk honorably before men; and is
safe in every place and condition.

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."

Rev. J. V. R. Talmage, D. D., the

two or three brief intervals, has been la

foreign missions in China has been more

Christian Intelligencer, in announcing
the return of Dr. Talmage, savs : "We

Dr. Talmage will awaken a new interest

to the Southern Presbyterian Church.
The Southern Presbyterian Church, at
the late meeting of their Assembly, and
the General Synod of the 'Reformed

promise to clasp each other in

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. The pencil and car
Don .marks become fixed, ana the draw
ing may then be colored with water-
colors or washed, when much time and
trouble will be saved.
Gold ai-.-r-Prepare honey with gold
leal equal parts ; grind together upon
painters porphyry slab, with a muller,
until tne gold is reduced to the finest pos-
siDie state oi division, and the mass be
comes perfectly homogeneous, when it
must DejagUated 20 or au times its weight
ot hot water, aud then allowed to settle
aud the water poured; off. This process
iust be repeated with fresh water two
or three times, wheu the gold must be
dried and then mixed up with a littl
gum water for use. The brilliance of
writing performed with this Ink is con
siderable and may be increased by bur-
lusmng, woui niK may also be made by
mixing prccipitateu goiu powder with
little gum water.
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. Some persons place those whit
they wish to preserve in a netting or ou
a cullender, and immerse themfor an in
stant in a caldron ot boiling water, !tx-
fore packing them away. Sometimes
eggs are placed in vessels containing lard
or gum water ; an oi winch act by exclu
mug uiu air.
Prilling Glass with Emery. 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.
