Grumbling Jennie. BY MISS CAMILLA WILLIAX. IENNIE SUMMERS was ten i years old and had straight dark brown hair, black eyes, and a rather dark skin- Besides these she had two little up-suiu-tiown lines between her eye-brows. She didn't have these lines quite all the time, but they were there no often that they left little marks behind them. These lines were where Jennie seowledj and they made her look cross. Jennie wasn't a had sort of a girl, but I must say, that she was about as cross as she looked. She had got into the way of seeing the snarly side, and if you look lone enough you can find It and the consequence was, that whoever had heard Jennie Hummers speak-, had heard her grum bler Some thihgVyou set tired ofdoing nfte? "While! T)ur thereare others-hat the more you dotMNnoreycm want to do, and grumbling fe one of the last. Not that gfrim biers are bnppy, but it's a way you get into, and hardly know how to leave. - Perhaps you don't know that grumb ling makes people ugly looking. Well, it does. ' It makes the mouth just as homely as it can be, hanging down at the corners, and It makes the eyes dnll, and the kin dark and yellowish, and the motions heavy and ungraceful. That is what everybody can see ; 'but there is something else that only the angels can see. xney nenoio oars spina un me sum ugly soars, -and festering sorest 1 think that Jennie Summer Jad been a very pretty girl" tilt she began to griimble. One morning she, opened her eyes she almost always opened her eyes in the morning and the first thing she saw was a blue dress banging at the head of her bed . "Dear me!" "she exclaimed, "I don't see why mamma put that old dress for me, 1 don't want to wear it. . It is two years old."'' But she put the dress on, and went down stairs with a very glum face." "Mean old dress t" she said, as soon as she saw her mother. ' "I put It for you because it is going to be a rainy day. It will do very well," her mother said.J "Come to your break fast now. We have all got through." "This ' breakfast is all done to "a scrump," said Jennie pushing her plate away. "I should think Ann might do it better." "There are some muffins," her mother said, "and the coffee Is nice." Jehnle tasted the coffee," and though her face was all screwed up. and she tried as hard as she could, she could find no fault with it. But she exclaimed as soon as she tasted the m tiffins : "O, this Is horrid!. ", Theliutter is too salt. 1 do wisli there was something fit to eat." ' . Mrs. 'Suinincrs looked sit Jennie a mo ment without speakingjtheti got up froiu the table and left her to her grumbling, Jennie sat a while snuffing up Iter nose at everything,but managed to eat a pret ty good breakfast after all, then she went to the window and looked out into the steet. "I never saw such mean weather, it rains all the time." : Again Mrs. '- Summers looked ait her daughter," but said nothing. .Jennie drummed onthe window, aud looked at a fine carriage that was passing. As it passed she saw a girl inside about her own age. "' . "I wish we had a carriage," she said, "and then I could ride out if it did rain. I never have any rides." "Don't you want to make a nic6 cloak for your doll, Jennie?" asked her niotli er. "Here is a piece of pink llannel." " "My doll isn't nice at all," grumbled Jennie. "She has got all the paint oft", I don't want to make her anything, I wish I had a new doll.". - , I couldn't tell you all the things Jen nie grumbled about that day. : Every thing went' wrong, nothing , was fit to eat, nothing was fit to wear, to look at. She spoilt her own pleasure and that of everyone about ,. her, and when it came evening she looked as sour as vinegar At length it came- her bedtime, and she went up stairs to go to bed. "Jennie," ' her mother said, after she had put the child to bed and kissed her, '"I want to talk to you a little.. You have a fault which I have often reminded you of, but which you do hot try to correct. You are discootened.and grumbling.Now I want to tell you how wrong it is." So her mother sat by her and reminded her of all the things she bad found fault witli that day; She told her how many poor children would have been thankful l'or the breakfast which she hail disdain ed, how many a little girl would be glad of a d'ess as pretty as she had Worn that day, or as nice a doll as she had. She told her that if she was so ungrateful for the blessings she received, it might be that God would take them away from her. Jennie was a little frightened, but she was cross, too; and when hef mother said good-tiizht to her she Just crumbled out a word and wouldn't promise- to do better. , But after her mother was gone site was sorry, and wished that she had tried to do better,1-: and thought what a dreadf uKhing ifrwould be If they were to become poor as her mother., had, said. By-and-by she went-to sleep. The next morning she waked very early ,and there was her mother sitting crying by her side. Jennie was so frightened that she didn't dare to speak for a long time, but by-and-by she. managed, to ask what the matter was. "Your father has failed, and we have got to lose our home," said Jennie's mother, crying as though she could scarcely speak. Sure ' enough, that very day they be gan to pack .up their clothes and get ready to go. All the nice furniture, the beautiful china and silver, they had to leave. Those must De sola to pay their debts, All they could take was their clothes' Jennie's little walnut bed witll its muslin curtains was left behind, her embroidered arm-chair, the beautiful crib she had slept in when she was a babv everything that could be sold for money. It was a sorrowful day when they left their pleasant home, and went to live in three poor rooms in a narrow and noisy street. Jennie almost broke Iter heart. She missed ail the fine things they had lost, and sue ieit miscraoie in their poor, mean rooms. .,, Besides, she was unhappy about , her father and mother. They both grew sick,nnd they could get but little work to do.audgrew poorer aud poorer, till some days they had not enough to eat. Jennie used to remember . the way in which she had grumbled in . their dear home, that now seemed to her like a palace. O, how she would like snch a breakfast as that one she had turned up her nose at the very last neacefnl morning she had spent at home! How delicious those muffins seemed ; beside the dry bread they had now; how much nicer the coffee was than their coarse, weak tea, and as to beef-steak, they could no more have it now than they could have diamonds. Jennie had never known nor cared how much money the things she had; disdain ed cost, or where- the moner-came from : but now she knew how hard every .dol lar came, and it frightened her to think how many cents had to be paid for a wound of beef, and what a very small piece a pound is. She began to realize what it is to be very poor, to suiter, and to see those you love suffer. Besides this, her clothes were fast wearing out. She had ' worn her best ones first, and they were all gone till there was noth ing left but the old Dlue trocK we lound her grumbling about at the beginning of this story. Iler shoes were out at the toes, and her hat was as faded and shabby as it could be. She left off going to school because the girls laughed at her and called her little rag- muffin. How it made ' her think of of the happy old times when she was dressed the most pretty - of all the girls, when she put on a clean frock and white stockings every morning, and used to giveaway her shoes as goon as the gloss was worn off them. Besides, what made her feel still worse, she recollected how she used to turn up her nose at poor raesred little girls, and pull her dress . awiiv from them in passing. Now she was one of them. "If I had known how anybody feels when she is laughed at so, .1 never would have done it," sobbed Jennie, all to herself,: as she sat alone one day when her father and mother were both out trying to get some work to do. Poor Jennie was miserable enough. She v;as ragged, and hungry, and cold, and she was so thin aud pinched looking that she hardly knew herself when sue looKea in the erlaga. She sat there wrapped up in a blanket, for they had no fite, and as she thought and thought, the tears rolled down her face, and she felt as though she -were choking. - T BB CONTINUED. t as AGRICT7LT U KAL. No wood is used for fnel on the Rus sian railways. This order is very strict, and it is intended to preserve the forests from complete destruction. The fruit crop of England- this year is the smallest ever remembered. The Gardener's Magazine says the peach-wall is as bare as the apple orchard ; there are very few plumbs and cherries, while jiears are thinly sprinkled. The cause of the dearth is the cold weather which prevailed during March and April. Canary Birds. Hang the cage al ways where drafts do not strike the bird. Give healthy birds canary and rape seed, plenty of fresh water, cuttle fish bone, and clean gravel on the bottom of the cage often.. Also, give the birds fresh water to bathe in every day. Alter they have bathed remove 'the dish, which should be shallow. .Never have the room overheated. At night, when the fire has gonedown, if it is very cold, throw a thin-cloth over tho cage." A little Jep per; occasionally,' regulates them. Do not , give them cake or sugar.' When moulting, feed them on rape seed slight ly moistened. Hard boiled - egg aud eracker grated are excellent.: Bad seed will kill birds. Cabbage and sweet ap ples are good for them, and now. and then a fig. With moderate care the lit tle songsters will repay your attention with sweet notes of joy. Western Rural. Immense Okaxgk Groves. The New Orleans Picayune says : The : largest and finest ' orchard In Plaquemines is that' of Mr. Efilingham Lawrence, on bis Magnolia sugar plantation, opposite f ointe-a-ia-iiacn. it yields an income in the bloom of fifteen or twenty thou sand. dollars a year. From his orchard, for the distance oi thirty miles below, along the right bank, is one unbroken cluster of orange groves. . Another fine orchard is that o Mr. Pasnaeht, on the left bank, further up the riyer, at his "Orange Grove" plantation. The orch ards located on the right bank are, how ever, more sure of a yield than those on the left bank.- The yield oi a good tree will average about one thousand oranges, which, at hve. cents .apiece, realize the very handsome amount of fifty: dollars to the tree. The grower, however,, does Mot receive any such profit. -,The crop is sold to the fruit monopolists of the city, while the tree Is in bloom, who guard, gather and transport the fruit to market at their own expense. The own ers of orchards do not receive more than one and a-half cent to a single orange, or fifteen dollars to a tree yielding one thousand oranges. Impost ant to Daibymex. The Lorain fonnty Xeiii tells how a . dairy man in the vicinity ot U Derail managed to keep a cow from flirting her tail in his face wlnle milking: "One rainy evening Mr. Jones went out as usual with pail and stool to milk the cows. The ani mals were not in the cleanest condition, and when the wet and muddy narrative of one : was provokingly . lashed across Ins lace lyice or twice, jlr. Jones got his 'dander' up. 11c was mad, aud he vowed lie would fix that cow so that she wouldn't lash him for once at least. " So lie carefully tied her tail to his boot strap. Everything went, on smoothly for a time, and Mr. Jones congratulated lumsell on the success oi ins experiment. He was feeling good, and perhaps would have sung a hymn or psalm if he had known one, when the cow took a notion to lash a 11 v that was biting her. Mr. Janes chuckled some when he felt the pull at his boot strap, but his chuckling was soon cut short, for 'Bessie,' finding lie could not touch ncr tormentor, sud denly started, and as Mr, J. was not pre pared lor Bucn a demonstration, ne was upset, with the contents of the pail dis tributed over his , persou, ...The- oow stopped for a moment, but in that time our hero had gamea nis ieet ; a moment Latter be was seen with his hand on the hip of the cow, making the tour of the farm yard with prodigious hops upon one foot, the other being suspended" by the boot-strap, pb ten was 'still attached to- the-cow's tail. '.At every hop he would ejaculate, "so, Boss, so, Boss,' but Boss-didn't 'so'' worth a cent, until, almost used up, the boot-attachment, suddenly broke, and. Mr. Jones was free. He returned to the house wiser if . not a sadder man, and so far as we know, has never repeated . his novej experi ment." Propagating Roses with Cuttings. Roses are very easily grown from cut tings., me snoot snouiu not oe too voung. nor vet so old as to be woody, Peter Henderson says "If a cutting will break readily it is in the best condition to grow; but tr it nenus it win not root as unicklyj If at all."1 It should be cut off just below a joint, trimming off the leaves at the bottom, and leaving not more than two buds -with leaves) at the top, and if these are large it is better to cut on one or two oi them, tor it . there are too- many; leaves they will , surely, wilt. Clear sand is the best to make all kinds of cuttings grow, but it. must be thoroughly soaked with water all the time, for if allowed to dry the cuttings will surely die. Bottom heat is also es sential to the successful growth of all kinds or cuttings,-, ana it a not-oed or hot-water tank is not to be had, we must Improvise one with a pan of hot water, placing the pots into it and changing it two or three times each day. The great secret of growing cuttings is in the even ness of the temperature, which should not vary more than from 65 to 70 de grees ; if allowed to vary- from 60 to 80 degrees: they will rarely live.- So, if pos sible, cover the cuttings with a: glass, and remove it when it is very warm. If a large pot is only half full of sand and kept lu warm water and covered with a piece or window glass, a very good tiny hot-bed is procured. In summer it well to plant -cuttings out of doors in sand, with a partial shade from the sun, and enclose them in glass shades-- night and day. As soon as a few tiny leaves show that the rootlets are formed, the cuttings must be transplanted into the richest soil, tor although sand is the best medium to force the roots, it will not nourish them sufficiently to form many leaves. Springfield Jtepublican, .' Sheep-runs is New Zealand. The inhabited part of New Zealand consists of two narrow islands some, five hun dred miles long, and it possesses a great variety of climate; some parts, such as Wellington and Otago, being quite Eng- iisn in tueir temperature, wuue tnc provinces on the eastern coast have a cli mate resembling that of the Santa Clara Vallcv, in California. All over New Zealand the summer winds are so bois terous that the culture of the grape Is im possible, even in parts where tho heat of the sun would otherwise admit of it ; but ail other fruits of tempeaate regions grow well, niese islands are sneep pastures. par excellence, and sheep thrive well oh the natural, grasses; and wherever, the English grasses are sown, they spread so rapidly as to eradicate the native growth, and to afford the flocks a still more abundant nourishment. - - In Hawkes Bay, in the north island, the runs are put up at auction by the Government, in blocks of thousands of acres, and bring from 5,000 to 20,000, or .30,000. in the province ot Canter bury, in the middle island, the runs are not soia, out tne leases are put up at auc tion. The capital required to engage in sheep-farming is about the same in both islands, and an investment of 5,000 is required to make it profitable ; a New Zealand laborer, therefore, never thinks of settling in that country. He gets about 1 per week, with board and lodg ing included. This he saves up (fre quently leaving It In his master's hands, who gives him ten per cent, per ; annum tor the loan or it) till it amounts to sum sufficient to go home and start some little business, thus adding to the over crowded state of England and depriving the new country of a valuable settler. The wages I have stated are those of a common laborer; a shepherd gets 2 per week and sometimes more at least, such. were tne prices tnree years ago. ir, Hawkes Bay, the minimum price of gov ernment land is five shillings per p.cre, and land not bought in at the public auctions is open to settlers at from ten to five shillings per acre; but this land is generally in Inaccessable situa tions, and therefore useless. In Canterbury, the minimum price of land is 1, and this is the reason the lands are leased and not bought in that province. The greater part of the land is unfitted for agriculture ; but its poverty and rug gedness agree well with the nocks, who are strangers to the diseases that affiict them elsewhere, and their pastures are well watered by numerous streams and rivers. Owing to the formation of the country, the Auckland land-grants fur nished by the Government to immi grants, are a delusion and a snare, being generally quite valueless. From "Facia nboxit New Zealand," in the Overland Monthly or $epteMtbcr PRACTICAL HINTS. TKe various reopen mhieh will hereafter be gxten to our reader, in this department, are presented onfy after they have been tested and. proven reliable. The information they contain vyill, therefore, always be found to be valuable and well worthy of preservation Preserves. To prevent jams, preserves etc., from graining, a teaspoon ful of cream tartar must be added to every gal lon or tne jams or preserves. Shoulder of Mutton. A shoulder of mutton weighing about six pounds re quires one hour and a half to roast : if fetuffed,a quarter of an hour longer. Be- -fore, cooking it, take out the bone and fill the space with a dressing of bread crumbs, pepper, salt, parsley, sweet mar joram, one egg, and a small piece of but ter, mixed together. Pfc' Head Baked. Let it be divided and thoroughly cleaned; take out the brains, trim the snout and ears, bake it an hour: and a half, wash, the brains thoroughly, blanch them, beat them up with, an egg pepper and salt, And some finely, chopped or pounded sage, and a small piece of butter ; fry them, or brown them before the fire ; serve with the head. .To, Improve -Tea.--'Hr.- Soyer recom mends housekeepers to place the teapot ' upon the hob for a little while before making. This" plan certainly improves both strength and flavor. Rain water, when pure, is the best for making all in fusions including tea, of course since the solvent powers of water are great in proportion to its . freedom of earthly salts. Preservation of Lemons. corres pondent states that lemons may be pre served by the very simple process of -var nishing them with a solution-of shellac in spirits of wine. ' FreshJlemoU juice" is thus obtainable at all seasons of the year ; and if the peel be required for fla voring, the skin ol shellac may be easily removed by simply kneading the elastic lemon in the hands. : 1 Plain Mince Pies. These may be made made of almost any cheap pieces of meat, boiled till tender; add suet or salt pork chopped: very fine ; two-thirds as much apples as meat t sugar and spiee to your tastc: -: If mince pies are eaten cold it is better to use salt pork than .'suet; a lemon, a Tittle syrup of sweetmeats will greatly improve them. Cloves is the most important spice. Paint and Varnish Dryer. A rapid dryer for oil paints and varnishes, it is stated, is prepared by dissolving twelve parts of best, of shellac - and four parts borax in one hundred parts ot wa ter., by the aid of heat. This solution. after heating it, is poured into bottles and should be well corked. If mixed with some oil of turpentine and then ad ded to the oil p.lintc,it will cause them to dry very rapidly. . Superior Ginger Beer. Ten pounds of sugar; nine ounces ot lemon juice; one half pound of honey ; eleven ounces of bruised ginger root; nine gallons of wa ter; three pints of yeast. ' Boil the -'gin ger half an hour in a gallon of water and the other mgreuiants, aud strain when cold.-: Add the white of an egg beaten, and one-half ounce of essence of lemon. Let it stand 4 days, and bottle, and it will kep many mouths. A Luncheon Cake. One pound of flour. four ounces of butter, six ounces of moist sugar, a quarter of a pound of cur rants, quarter of a pound of stoned raisins, spices and candied peel to the taste; a teaspoonfulof carbonate of soda mixed in halt a pint ot cold milk, all to be mixed . together and beaten into a paste, then put into the oven without being set to rise; it will take an hour and a half to bake. Small Water Power. A pipe which will deliver 5 gallon !' of water per minute wuiiurnisnmDout 80 hundredths of a one-horse power, sufficient to drive a moderate sized machine such as could be worked by a boy.; The sizo of a tur bine adapted thereto would be, say 8 or 9 inches inside diameter of . casing, with 7-inch diameter ot central wheel from outside of buckets.: .Twenty buckets would be better than a larger number. 'Sausages. The proper seasoning is salt,, pepper, sage, summer ; savory, or thyme ; they should be one-third fat, the remainder lean, finery cnopped, and the seasonings well mixed and proportioned so that one nerD may not predominate over the others. -; If skins are used, they cannot be prepared with too much care : but they are about as well made into Cakes spread , the cakes on a clean , white wood ; Doard, and keep them in a dry, cool place ; fry them long and gently. . , ; t . . . : - ... Metalic Stain for Wood. Soaking the wood in a weak: solution of nitrate of silver, and then exposing it to the light, win produce an intense mack color. Another way is to boil some chips of log wood in water for about a quarter of an hour. Then wash the piece of wood with it three or four times, allowing it dry each washing. . Lastly,; wash : the wood by means oi a common painting Drusn, wren a mixture - prepared as follows : rut one ounce or steel or Iron filings into two ounces of vinegar, keep tne pniai near tne nre so as to De gentlv heated for about two hour?, then decant the vinegar, and keep it lor use. . A Ghie that will Hold Against Fire or Water- jU.ix a bandlul ot quick lime with - four1 ounces of linseed oil; boil them to a good thickness, then spread it on tin plates in the shade and it will be come exceedingly ' hard, but maybe easily dissolved over a fire, as glue, and win join wood perfectly. Another strong and fine glue may be prepared with isinglass and spirits of wine, tnus : bteep tne isinglass tor twen ty-four hours in spirits of wine or com mon brandy; when the liquor has opened and molifled the isinglass thev must be gently boiled together and kept stirred till they appear well mixed, and till a drop thereof suffered to cool, pre sently turns to a strong jelly ; then strain while: not through a clean linen cloth into a vessel, to be kept close stopped; a gentle heat suffices to dissolve the glue into a transparent and almost colorless fluid, but very strong, so that pieces of woou giueu together witn it will sooner separate elsewhere than in the parts joineu. - Apple Pies, If you prefer the apple stewed beforehand, you have simply to sweeten and spice it as you like, add a small bit of butter; let the apple remain whole, as may be. Pies made of raw apples arc. more fresh and preferred by many people. There are two ways of making them.: To eat immediately, the following is excellent: Lay the slices into the dish upon an under-crust; fill the dish quite full ; sprinkle the rim with a little flour to prevent the upper-crust from adhering to the under one; bake forty minutes, or till the apple is tender, and then slide off the upper-crust, and add a small bit of butter,, some nutmeg, or rose-water and sugar to the taste. Mix them well with the apple with a silver spoon, and return the upper-crust to its place. The other method is to lay tb'e apples into a dish with an under-crust and for a large family no matter how large a dish is used; grate a -whole or half nutmeg over, according to the size of tfee pie, or if you have. & fresh orange, cut small the peel of aalf a one, and sprinkle over the apple ; add a few sticks of cinnamon, a few Vittle bits of butter, and lastly put on p;3 1BUch sugar as your judgment, direct. Cover it and close the edge. Bak'j from an hour and a halt to two hours Chilblain s. To prevent chilblains, the 3St-Pi take 88 niueh exercise as possible. j and avoid tight wristbands, gar ters, arid everything that prevents the circulation of the blood. The moBt fre auG'ut cause of chilblains is the -warming of numbed hands and feet at .the fire; tnis habit should be carefullv avoided. Encourage children to use the skipping rope during cold weather this is a cap ital preventive together with regularly washing and rubbing the feet. Wegive a few household remedies for the cure of these disagreeable companious : 1. Take half an ounce of white wax, one ounce of ox marrow, two ounces of lard ; melt slowly over a fire in a pitkin, and mix them well together ; then strain through a linen cloth. Before going to bed spread the ointment on the parts affected, feet or hands, taking care to wrap them up well. 2 . Lemon juice rubbed on the in flamed parts is said to stop tho itching. A sliced onion dipped in salt has the same eflect, but is apt to make the feet tender. ' When the chilblains are broken a little warm vinegar or tincture of myrrh Is an excellent thing to bathe the wound, and keepitclean. Another use ful remedy is a bread poultice at bedtime, and in the morning annlv a little resin ointment spread on a phyte of lint or old n neu.

They are the Great Blood Purifier and a Life-giving Principle, a Perfect Renovator and Invigorator of the System, ranywjr off all poisonous matter and restoring the blood to a healthy condition, enriching it, refreshing and Invigoratinz both mind and body. They are easy of administration, prompt In their action, certain in their results, safe and reliable in all forms ol disease. Ho Person can take these Bitters accord ing to directions, aud remain loug unwcil, provided their bones are not destroyed by mineral poison or other means, and the vital organs wasted beyond the point of repair. Dyspepsia or Imlljrestlou, Headache, Pain In the Shoulders, Coughs, Tightness of the Chest, Dizziness, Sour Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Fulpitatiou of the Heart, Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the region of the Kidneys, and a hundred other painful symptoms, are the offsprings of Dyspepsia. In these complaints it has no equal, and one bottle will prove a better guarantee of its merits than a lenethv advertisement.

Pin, Tape, and other Worms, lurking In the system of so mauy thousands, are effectually destroyed and removed.
