A PYRAMID OF CABBAGES. , - Why, where are you going, Isabel East m an r Not into the farm-yard, surely Yes, Miss Lottie Mayell, I am go ing into the farm-yard, surely," re plied Isabel, with a mischievous light in her big. gray eves, and a charming smile on her prettily curved lips, as she opened the gate leading to that place. ' Nowhere else can we be confidential without running the risk of being overheard. Tbe farmer's family are in the orchard; Chariey and a half-dozen of his play-mates are playing in the flower garden; there's a young couple in the parlor at the piano, he making love, and she not making music and a till younger couple whispering and giggling in the bay-window; auntie is in mv room enjoying Splendid Mis ery;' and grandma is in auntie's room darning stockings. And so, if you really want to hear 'right away -why ' I am here instead of at one of my usual summer haunts, you must e'en follow me to the farm-yard. Besides which" speaking with increased ani mation "1 have lately, strange as it may seem to you, developed quite a passion for farm-yards." "It doesn't seem at all strange to " me, my dear, for during our ten years' friendship you've always been develop ing some odd passion or other. - But I've never lost faith in you. Lead on; . I'll follow." : i And stepping daintily and gracefully, unimpeded by trains or demi-trains, the young girls threaded their way . through the crowd of hens and chick ens holding a loud and lively conversa tion preparatory to going to roost; past the cows waiting to be milked, and turning their heads to look alter the intruders with great solemn browns eyes; and old Low head, the white - horse, slaking his thirst at the water trough to the extreme end of the - yard, where a pile of cabbages, neatly arranged in the form of a pyramid, coal runted them. "Behold," said Isabel, stopping be- - fore it, how Nature lends herself to . Art! (That sounds well, though I ' don't know as it means anything.) This mighty structure, formed of the green and succulent cabbage, is no doubt the work of some humble . field-laborer, who, having read of the Pyramids of Egypt incited thereto, no doubt, by the newspaper paragraphs about our own dear Obelisk has sought to vary the monotony of cabbage liie by build ' ine as close an imitation as his material would allow. iei us nope mat wis flight of imagination may lead to a higher one, and that the cabbage man, like the butter woman, may meet with public recognition, and at last be crowned with a wreath of laurel.

Well, last June, at Newport, my diminutive friend. Eda Smythe, with a head the exact counterpart of Claude's, appeared upon the scene, and she and my betrothed fell in love with each other at first sight. Mamma fretted and fumed and scolded, and asked me, " '- with tragij emphasis, how I could look calmly on and see so many thousands of dollar being lost to tbe family, for she was sure that artful minx would per suade poor dear Claude to elope or s something; but I continued to look calmly on, until one evening Claude, ' with a deep sigh, kissed Eda's hand as he bade her 'Good-night,' when I turned suddenly upon them and bade them follow me to my room. There 1 . forgave quite in the manner of a stage 'parent the infatuated midgets their . case duplicity, gave them my blessing, i- kissed them both; and as soon as they, beaming with joy. had departed.

But I can see him in mv mind's eye' tall, ungainly. and speaks throuch his nose: eats with his knife; says 'How!" and stares at you as though you were a being from another sphere." . Your mind's eye needs an eyeglass. Miss Mayell. Its vision is weak. Tall. broad-shouldered, and gainly. if I may use the word as I mean It. . I saw him tossing bay to-day, and he looked like an Apollo who had exchanged his lyre for a pitchfork, and profited by the change. And his table manners are as exquisite as your own. Miss Mayell; and he has a deep, full voice, and does not say How!" and has scarcely looked, let alone 'stared,' at me. I have an idea that he regards girls of our ilk with a quiet scorn, and thinks of us, if he thinks ot ns at all. as hot-house flowers, not to be ' compared with the daisies growing wild in the meadows."

The- pyramid trembled to its base. and its apex tumbled to the ground. The girls rose quickly from their throue of sods, and with little shrieks fled to a safe distance, then turned to look again. It toppled over, its many heads rolling in every direction, and in the place it had occupied stood the young iarmer. ! bless your brother for building a pyramid to-day.

Spell-bound I remained concealed, half believing that I was still dreaming, to prove the falsity of the old proverb. Listeners ' never hear any good of themselves. But can I dare I hope that grains of earnest mingled with your jest, and that the pats ot butter in our dairy may some day be stamped with our monogram? Stand my friend.

And "of all things!" said Miss East- man, a lovely blush mantling her face; and then youth and fun conquered all three, and thev laughed until the farm yard resounded, and Lion, the watch dog, came bounding toward them, ask ing with loud bow-wows what was the matter. A few weeks after Miss Isabel East man became Mrs. Nathaniel Leigh, her husband, lying at ' her feet in. the orchard, and looking up into her face with adoring eyes, said: "X never would have gained courage to have told you of my love, though I loved you from tbe very first, had I not heard from your own sweet lips that you cared a little for me.

Rubbing off the tender shoot is prefer able to cutting away the branch in after years. Good Stewed Chicken. Put in a saucepan a piece of butter tbe size of a walnut, dredge in a little flour, set on the stove and stir till smooth and a lit tle on the fry; add a very little water, let it cook a trifle more, then put in your chicken that of course has been washed and cut up. stir it all round slowly, then dredge in a little more flour and pour in a little more water. cover up and stew, occasionally adding more water as required, but not too much at one time. Let it be well done before dishing. When a horse is uneasy and suf fers, and turns around his nose to his flanks, ne is troubled with indigestion, and this also affects the kidneys. When a horse is not working, good bay is sufficient without corn, and too much corn will then be apt to cause trouble. The remedy for such trouble is to les sen the grain if he is in good condi tion, give a pint of linseed-oil, and re peat the next day. Then give a dram (teaspoonful) each of ground ginger and carbonate of soda twice a day in some bran and cut hay wetted, or in a bran mash. jV. Y. Times. The Bellflower is a fine eating and cooking apple. The Prairie Farmer raises the objection that it is unproduc tive in some localities, and savs: "We know of an orchard of them of 250 trees. seventeen years old. from which not one bushel of fruit has ever been gathered, while it is immediately surrounded on all sides by other varieties that have been grandly productive, with the same soil and culture. Therefore, it is one of tbe varieties that should never be planted except where experience has shown they will bear fair crops." Tbe same is true of other apples, the North ern Spy, for example. Suit your variety to soil and climate. A writer in the Housekeeper furnish es these hints: "There are many nice ways of cooking potatoes, and our fa vorite one is irj ing them. Slice raw and put sweet lard enough in youa spider to well cover tbe bottom after it is melted; put in - the sliced potatoes; salt, pepper and cover tight; let them eook untd well browned on the bottom before turning. The knack is to hare lard enough to brown them without burning or sticking, and turning the fresh ones to the bottom so that nearly all may brown. Potatoes are also very nice boiled in lard like doughnuts. To those who love pot-pie. and do not suc ceed in getting it light, I can whisper a secret; make the dough without a bit of shortening, and leave the cover off your kettle for fifteen minutes, when it will be nearly done; then clap on tbe cover, cook five minutes more and serve, and say good-by to tough, heavy dumplings." An elegant cake to be baked in lay ers with a filling of fig paste is made thus: Take one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups and a half of flour. ball oi a cup ot sweet milk, tbe whites of seven eggs, two teaspoonfuls of bak ing powder; cream the butter and sugar till very light and by tbe way, this should always be done when you wish nice cake. Meat tbe eggs to a stin froth. It is to be hoped that you have a good egg-beater. I believe it is a matter of economy. For the filling take one pound of figs: chop them fine and cook until soft, and smooth with a teaoupful of water aud half a cup of sugar. Another, but 1 thins less de sirable, way to prepare the hllicg is to take ten ounces oi ngs and nve ounces of raisins; stone the raisins and then chop them and the figs fine, then soak them all night in enough cider to make with them a paste which will spread almost like a thick custard. Uor. A. T. FosL Rule ef Calculating the Cattle. Weight ef Br the following rule may be found very nearly the weight of live animals: See that the animal stands square; then take his circumference behind the shoulder-blade this is the girth. Then measure from the bone of the tail which plumbs'the line with the hinder part of the buttock, and direct tbe string along the back to the fore part of the shoulder-blade this will be the length. Then work the figures thus Suppose the girth of a bullock six feet four inches, length five feet three inches, which multiplied together makes thirty-three square superficial feet: and this multiplied bv twenty- three the number of pounds allowed for each superficial loot oi cattle meas uring less than seven and more than five feet in girth makes 759 pounds. When the animal measures less than nine and more than seven feet in girth. thirty-one is the number of pounds to be estimated lor each supernciai foot. And suppose a small animal to meas ure two feet in girth and two feet in length, these multiplied together make lour leet, wnicn multiplied oy eleven the number of pounds allowed for each square foot when cattle measure less than three feet in girth makes forty-four pounds. Again, suppose calf or sheep, etc., to measure four feet six inches in girth, and three feet nine inches in length, that multiplied together makes sixteen square feet, and these multiplied by sixteen the num ber of pounds allowed lor cattle meas uring less than five and more than three feet in girth make 256 pounds. Tbe dimensions of cattle, sheep, calves and hogs taken this way, will give the weight of the four quarters of the animal, sinking tne ouau A deduction must be made for animals, half fattened of one pound in twenty from those that are fat; and for a cow that has had calves one pound must be allowed. in addition to the one for not being fat,' upon every twenty.

THE DAIRY. A nonxiKT English cheese dealer fives his opinion of anti-buff, and it is y no means favorable to the inventive genius of Americans, and, according to nis view, the use of this questionable compound will destroy the sale of American cheese in English markets The butter dealers of Boston have united in a petition to Franc's 1). Moul- ton, president of the international uairy Fair Association, asking him to have Congress pass a law requiring oleomar garine, suine, and other artificial butter to be properly inspected and branded before it is exported. A Lkaki.no Teat. A hole in the side of a cow's teat may be closed by clip ping away the skin around the edges of the nole, then cutting a small slit across the hole and a little above and below it, aud bring the edges together with a stitch. As the wound heals tbe hole will close. This should be done when the cow is dry. or a milking tube should be used to draw the milk. To Prepare Atxatto. To prenare annatto for coloring butter, procure from the druggist a small quantity, an ounce or two, ofthe common annatto paste sold at the drug stores, tor ten or twelve quarts of cream take a piece of this as large as a pea and dissolve it in hot water. If it will not dissolve easily, add pinch of saleratus to the water. A nice way to prepare it is to dissolve it in salad-oil and use one teaspoonful for ten quarts of cream. if. Y. Times. Is order to produce absolutely pure milk, the cows must have pure water to drink. In the early days of dairying in the northwest, great complaint was heard about tainted milk, especially in June, July and August, and particular Jy if the season happened to be dry. Then the cows drank stagnant and filthy water, and their milk was tainted. But with the introduction- of wells, where there was no spring water, and the wind mill, the taint disappeared. Give the cows good, pure water, and in return get good, pure milk. Mottled or Waxt Cheese, The mottled or waxy appearance of cheese is due to uneven ripening. This is caused by some defect in the curd ; either the acid is not evenly developed, the fat has been partly removed, the curd has not been evenly cooked or aired, or the rennet may have been inferior. Any cause that may produce uneven quality will make the ripening uneven, or the cheese will even begin to decompose in parts. The cheese is then mottled or becomes waxy in spots. This never happens with well - made and rich cheese. Fattening an Old Cow In Mllk- Fattextno an old cow is general ly a slow and sometimes an un profitable process, unless she gives milk enough meanwhile to pay for the extra feed. A writer in the yational Live Stock Journal, who has made good beef of cows at sixteen to nineteen years of age, causing them to weigh 100 to 250 pounds more than at any period during their younger life, thus describes his process, which he has, without excep tion, found satisfactory, the animal al ways a little more than paj-iDg at the pail for all feed consumed, and " some times a good deal more: "If the old cow is quite thin and akinny. as she is very likely to be, she juld not be plied strongly witn corn- meal on the start. - This is apt to make her feverish and to induce a state op posed to thrifty fattening; besides, this feverish state will render her milk gargety. Give her slightly loosening aud cooling food at first, such as pump kins, potatoes, sweet apples, succulent rowen grass, one or two pounds of oil- meal, cheap molasses ana clover nay, or, better, green clover; and with any of these may be given on the start one or two quarts of cornmeal per day. The food must be gradually In creased. A pint to three pints of cheap molasses, diluted with three parts of water, and mixed with one-half bushel of cut clover hay, will keep the stomach and bowels in excel lent condition when beginning the cornmeal. And all these foods will make prime milk. Another food that will be found successful, and in many places cheap, is one bushel of flaxseed ground with fifteen bushels of corn. This flaxseed will render the cornmeal just laxative enough for health and the flaxseed is worth, as a food, all it usual ly costs. Cottonseed meal may also be fed to advantage up to three pounds per day. Linseed meal, made by the new process, is excellent to feed with cornmeal, as it has a large proportion of nitrogen and thus balances the corn meal; but two pounds per nay is sum cientofthis. The principal grain food may properly be cornmeal, which is usually cheaper for fattening than any other grain. Bran and cornmeal go well together lor lecuing an old cow. and after tbe cow gets accustomed to tbe use of tbe grain you may feed her six quarts of bran and six quarts of cornmeal in three feeds per day. It is always better to begin feeding her on ftasture, beginning the use of grain ightlv, as mentioned and increasing. little by little up to ber capacity. If the cow be young that you desire to get rid of because she is too small a milker. you may be surprised at the sudden im provement in milk when jouiry ianen- ing her on the plan suggested. Many dairymen do not know the capacity of their cows to give milk, because they have never lairly tested it by lull leed ing." IT. T. Tribune. Instruction in Dairying. A correspondent of the Agricultural Gazette, London, commenting upon dairy news, runs into the subject of dairy schools. He says: " Professor Sheldon bas said that in tne. tuture tne farmer's sheet-anchor will be milk-sell' ing. Certainly the extension of dairy ing is the direction which the farming of the future will take. This being so it would be as shameful as surprising if a vtstly greater interest was not evoked in an attempt to secure an improve ment in the quality of our butter and cheese, lbat such is much needed is. also, too true. Tbe fact that Danish butter is beating English for tbe sup plies of first-class hotels and on the re tail counters in many towns, this, coupled with the complaints of butter dealers as to the small proportion of really first-class butters, proves the ne cessity oi improving tne products ot tne churn. Turning from the churn to the cheese vat, we find the same state of things, if not even worse, for it has been estimated that 2,000,000 a year is lost in the production of the vast weight of cheese of very medium qual ity, and still more of inferior. Hence it is a matter for rejoicing that in the future we are likely to see dairying re ceive that attention which it deserves. alike from the large aggregate value of these two products as from the loss sustained by tbe lower-class oi products. Whether the increase of real dairy shows will bring about the needed im provement may be a matter of doubt. but if they do not tend in that direction they will grievously fail in their mission. It is to be hoped they may lead on to other aids in that direction. Certainly England is behind other countries in this matter. On the continent a great effort is being made, including the most useful oi all, tne estaoiisnment oi train ing schools. Ireland has got one or more such schools for the improvement of her butters. Soon we hope to bear of some in bngland, for surely, we are not to be behind the rest of the world. - Pastures that have been fed a few seasons will generally produce more milk, or make more rat, tnan those which have been newly seeded down.
