Zrfdtfsr. THE WRONG SCXDiT. ' A Tree Story. It tu Terr quiet at the old farm. For the first time . In their lives, the young people, four grown-up girls, had gone away together to star a week.' At home, they eenarallr kept things astir. , la the- way of fun anil frolic, from morn ins: till night. 'Some thine oofht to happen,1' they ' said to each other, "when father and mother are left alone. something funny." "Look - out, fath er," cried Bessie, gayly, as they were . leering. "Keep hold of the almanao, or tou mar lose the day of the week." bo Deacon Stearna and Mm. Stearna settled down for a quiet ipelL They could hardly remember that auch a time erer came to them before. Even the hired man had gone home. The deacon remarked j "Wife. I'll finish that history, .and add tip my yearly ac counts. v man t nave suca a raoaet now." She replied: "111 finish drawing-In my mat here u tune to turn off rood many things." ' . - This was Tuesday. Wednesday morn ing he tald: "It beats all bow we miss those girls. Bow do yon stand it, moth er f I believe it a going to snow." liar answer, wast "Well, . I think women hare so maoy things to do they don't mind being; lonely as much as men. ' If the children only get back safe, it's all I'll ask." ' The storm came f on 'Thursday," fast and furious, with racing! winds, piling; tip huge drifts, and rolling along; banks for children to tunnel.- Inside, every thing was peaceful In the dear old ait-ting-room, and so $tUL The deacon heaped tip the wood in the open fire place, where the flames roared, as If to show that the elements in doors were equal to those without. Then he went to sleep over his Presoott, and she ' nodded over her mat. The old dog - looked round occasionally to see if they were still alive; and the cat sat up and washed her face, in order to keep some thing moving. Thus the short day wore on to another night. Nor is It to be wondered at that with the quiet and the storm, and the going - to bed - early, - somehow this worthy couple lost a day. and awoke next morn ing with the firm conviotion that it was - Saturday instead of Friday. . "Well,' I forgot to put my beans " a-oak last ' night," said Mrs. Stearna; "but I suppose I ean boil them longer this morning.! : . "And I must look out for the brick . oven, and see to the fire-place logs for ' over Sunday," said Deacon Stearns, as - he unlocked the door. At night it was still snowing; but the Sunday baking was all in and ready to - come out hot the next morning the - beans, brown bread and sweet-apple pudding. , Besides, there were a whole nan of aDDle puffs, brown and flaky, in the pantry, a jar of doughnuts and oak- lea i cooues. The next morning was clear and cold. ' The sun shone and the snow was deep and smooth. No one had appeared in the street to dissipate their notion that ' the day was Sunday. ' "Wife,' said the deacon, as he came In to breakfast, "the snow is vrettv deep; and the drifts will be high below Mace's. What do you say to staying at home from meeting to-day P -Can t we manage - to keep Sunday - by our selves?" . Kow, the deacon's wife was one of the best women in the world; but she did like, sometimes, a quiet Sunday at home. , Being Tory conscientious, she seldom allowed herself such a luxury. Her face wore a smile of satisfaction as she spoke: It would be hard for the horse to stand out. Didn't 'he go a little lame the other day? . I hope we shant set a bad example to our new '.neighbors, but as yon think best, hus band. Toward noon, the took her Bible and sat down at ' the south window. She -could hardly believe her eyes. ..There went by a' load of wood, and another and still another! 'Taking advantage of this snow for sledding, -what a ahamet It looks like Mr. Foster's man, too." There eame a knock at the door.' A man asked for something . to eat. The ' deacon was in the barn, but she would not refuse a meal and shelter.. "Be sides,'" she thought, "I can talk to him about keeping Sunday." She seated him by the kitchen fire with a plate of provisions ana a cup at not ooaee. -"Are too travelintf far". "Just up from down below, looking . for work.' ' - "You don't look for work Sunday, I hooerK "Well. I don't know what ITl do to ' morrow.. Guess I'll wait till Sunday . comes." ' "Poor heathen;" she said to herself; "if I could only give him some instruc tion!" We are staring at home from meeting to-day, but we usually go. If you are able to walk in this snow, when vou ret into the city, too will find a church on the right-hand tide, this very road straight ahead. - You may go right - into our pew, tell the sexton 'Deacon Steams. Your clothes are good. You mustn't go about Sabbath-day if you would prosper." She rose and looked ' steadily at him to make her: remarks eflecuve. The man stared, then got up. Thank ve. mama: your food was 'rood and hot. ; I guess you're all right. If yon are a little . fuddled in your ' mind." . - She was too Indignant to u'ter a word, ami the man stepped out The deacon met him in the door-yard, and he said n hlmaplfr t Good chance to say a word to this - " Knt. when he began, the tramp actually burst out laughing and turned away. The deacon watched him with ' arrowing displeasure. He went a few . steps, turned around and looked at the house and seemed to be overcome with mirth. Another knock at the door of the kitchen. There stood a little girl, one of the new neighbor's children. "riease, ma'am, will yon lend my motherj a frying-pan She's cracked hers, and we can't get auother to day." Of course vou ean t. my child. We're not heathens in this town. Yea. you may take it; but come in and sit by iun uro. lor, sne aaiu to ni'r-eu, "per haps this is another chance; and there's more hope for children. ' JShe brought out two nice apple pu J on a pretty plate, and began: xk you know the coraniannmenuf " Yes, ma'am, some of them." "Will vou aav one alter me Re member the Sabbath-day to keep it holy.' " The child ate her pics, regarding her questioner with an amazed look that convinced Mrs. Stearns the had r.o: been .well taught. . She proceeded to en large; "My dear. I don t blame your mother for not sending you to Sunday-school to-day. the snow is so deep; but you must be careful when you go home about playing, for that would be wicked' Still eveinir her donbtfullv. the ehild departed. The teams of wood went by at inter vals through the afternoon. They talked the subject over, as, later, they at by the dying embers. "I don t know what this land is coming to," said the deacon. "It will get to be an other Sodom." "And I've made up my mind," said Mrs. Stearna, sorrowfully, "that 1 won't stay at home from meeting again. It may be a Judgment upon me. I do hope I've done some good though, to-day' " Well, that was a funny fellow you fed," returned the deacon. "Why, he actually laughed in my face, and then winked." At six the next morning she was up and at her washing, and he went to his usual work. As the sleighing was good, and none of the family were present at church. tbe deaoon'a nephew thought he'd ride down, and see if they were sick. Fast ening his horse, he heard the sound of the deacon's ax, and' made his way to the shed, but was never more surprised in his lue. "W by. Uncle b teams: work ing Sunday!". ' Tain' t Sunday," aaid the 'deacon, pausing with uplifted arm. "Ain't Sunday! Why, I've Just oome from meeting. Thought you must all De SICK." f ...ft ...!.. C. .1 . a ben vou j usicruBT wm duiiuaji and mother and I kept it at home." The nephew leaned againt the work bench for support as the truth dawned upon him. . The deacon threw down his ax, and started for the hou.te. Mrs. S'.earn. her clothes all out, was taking up the ainner . "Mother, what davls it?" Why, it is Monday, father. What do yon meanf " " Here's Ben, and says It's Sundiy!" "Sunday! Ben, yon are crazy." And he sank down on the sofa. Ben had a hard time proving the truth of his statement; but whi n he finally succeeded she drew on her hood and mittens. "Clothes shan't dy on buntiay, anyway. " Mother, I'd let 'em alone. It will be lust as bad if yon take 'em down." "Mr. Stearna, I never could enloy wearing them again, never I" And she brought them baok into the tubs. To think that Mr. Foster's men should have gone by this morning, and seen me putting them out. Well, it will be a lesson to me never to Judge any body again." - M V mu. It will Kj.

In order to avoid any more work, and concluded that the mistake was owing to the storm without and the stillness within. . As for Ben, he laughed all the way home, and he laughed for rears after and so d d the girls, when they thought of it. Hamate Ilea, in vnruttan ueg Met, Hew Telescopes Are Hade. Prof. J. K. Bees, of Columbia Col lege, lectured last night in the htJl of the Packer Collegiate Institute, Brook lyn, to an audience of about six hun Ired people. The subject of the lecture was "The lireat Telesco- es of the World.' and it was illustrated with dissolving views. The professor read from manu script in an easy and clear voice, and dressed his thoughts in simple and ap propriate language, using but very few technical terms. He beran with a de scription of the manufacture of the dif ferent parts of the modern telescope. describing minutely the process of grinding the lenses. In America this is done by means of an iron polls! er, made to fit the convex of the lens as near as possible The inside of this polishing iron is coated with pitch, and the glass. having been first roughly ground, is placed inside, and the workman walks around we poiisner pressing on tne lens. In Europe the poluhing is done by machinery, the lens beio held against the revolving polisher. Tliis, it is claimed, insures a more uniform sur face, but experience has demonstrated that no lenses as yet made nave given such general satisfaction as those ground by Alvin Clark, of Cambridge, Mass., and all glasses irom mm are ground dy hand. "It seems singular, thinking of the fame that this man now enjoys, that it was in another country he first gained a reputation for fine work. Alvin Clark was a portrait-painter, and took up the study of optics as a diversion, t or ten rears he turned out glasses without at tracting any notice, but at last tbe merit of his lenses was published by English astronomers. Just before the outbreak of the war. Prof. Bernard, now President of Columbia College and then the head of the University of Mississippi, gave Alvin Clark an order for as lens fifteen inohes in diameter. The rebellion prevented the -sending of the glass to Mississippi, and finally it was bought for the Dearborn Observato ry, of Chicago, where it now is. It is a singular fact that New York Citv, occu pying the commercial supremacy which it does, can not boast of anything in the line of astronomical research; but it is hoped that in tbe near future some one will endow an observatory which will be a monument more enduring to tbe aonor s memory inan ne commonplace successes of life. The views with which the lecture was illustrated embraced rjhotogTsnhs of the primitive appliances of the Chaldean shepherds for deter mining the equ'noxes, the telescopes of Galileo and Herschel, and Tyco Brahe's observatory on the Island of Huen. Among the famous modern instruments were shown ths mammoth refractors in the Naval Observatory at Princeton College and the reflectors at Paris and Melbourne. In conclus'on the speaker. after ment'oning the divided opinions regarding the merits of refractors and reflectors, said: "The future optio'an who may discover the means of avoid ing the secondary observation and change of color, the present drawbacks In refractors, will demonstrate the par amount utility of the refractor, or 'he one who finds the way to provide against all atmospheric changes in the re.;eeor may give the paim to mat Myie oi giar-s. but iid to the present time all practical testa nave shown the superiority of the refrsotor for astronomical work. 1 rol. Reea was- loudly applauded, Ji. Y. Tim. - An Awful Strain. - The greatest attempt which is at pres ent being made in this country in the way of assuming things against hope less odds is exhausting the energies of the New York Democracy. The par ticularity and repetition with which the hypothesis that the Buffalo Convention wiped out all traces of Democ ratio sins and differences in the State is utilized as a base of political argument are very noticeable. In fact they are amusingly obtrusive. The art which conceals art is not a Democratic gift. The alleged love-feast character of the Convention is editorially alluded to in a very labor iously manufactured casual and matter-of-course manner which leaves no strength to be devoted to the topics the articles are supposed to be written about. The thing is clumsily overdone, and there is too much of it. It attracts tiie very kind of criticism which its pur pose is to avoid, it reveals the con sciousness of lying, the most difficult of its features which hypocrisy to be suc cess ul must hide. The train which conveyed the delega tion of the County (regular) Democracy back from rlunalo to New York City was adorned with brooms. This was intended to represenc a clean sweep a victory over Tammany, whereas Tam many secured precisely the representa tion that it had last year, and simply failed to have its additional claims sat isfied. These claims it probably did not expect to be allowed, but simply made them in order to be sure to ask for enough, and, perhaps, to appear to yield something. At all events, Tam many accepts .the result, and it never does that peaceably unless it has sub stantially gained its point, it is inter esting to recall in tiiis connection the great work of self-puritioation which the new Xork City Uemoeracy entered upon some years ago for the purose of redeeming its organization from the control of the plug-uglies, who were a standing disgrace to the party at largo, and appropriated virtually all the pub lic plunder in the metropolis. The bet ter elements concluded, ny one tre mendous effort, to wrest the manage ment from Tammany, to deprive it of recognition in the State Convention, and to conduct tbe primaries as they were conducted elsewhere. An im mense meeting was held at Cooper In stitute, anorganlzation formed, and the next morning it was announced that there was a regenerated and disen thralled Democracy In Now York City. If Tammany expected to exert any in fluence hereafter, it must be as individ uals and through the regular processes. And tiie purifying movement was gen erally indorsed throughout the State. It w as acknowledged as the legitimate body, and it looked for awhile to those who did not understand Just what Tam many was as if Kelly and his clan must go under. But Tammany declined to y'eld. Kel ly knew that the Domocracy could not win without It, and he felt confident thath's following would stand by him. Then the rir ue of the regulars, with defeat staring them in the face, came out in a strong 1'ght. Defeat to them. with honor, was proierauie to r.ctory noon the conditions which Kelly and his gang of freebooters would dictate. There was a forvor in these professions which bespoke sincerity. Defeat came. and it was not palatable Kelly stood serene, as office after office fell from tbe Democratic grasp. It was just the k'nd of argument he wanted. Tbe Demo crats in the State grew nervous and de clined to exclude Tammany longer from the State Convention. The County De mocracy were very wroth therea but the'.r determination via bly weakened, and after awhile the majority of them condescended to dicker with the body they had organized to destroy. 1 be re sult of the dicker was not satisfactory. Some vaTantly declared that if Tam many were admitted to the State Con- vemioa mo regular uuieatinu wouia march nt in a body. But Tammany was admitted and g'ven twenty-four seats. The regular delegation d d not march out in a oody. On the contrary, it remained In, and its tra:n came glid ing into the New xork depot with the emblems of victory sweep'ng the air. Reform had triumphed. Harmony was secured. And Tammany ha is the spec tacle with a great guffaw. And well it may. it is to continue to have the lion's share of the city offices to devote to paying its expenses and generally wax fat on. It is to be list ened to with deference. It is to remain incorporated in the body of the De mocracy, contaminating and demoral izing what there may be of good in it. The regular organization of the party, intimidated with the prospect of los ing the State, sells out to it body and soul. And yet "the quarrels of the Democracy having been settle! at Buf falo, and everything shaped in tbe di rection of purification, the citizens of the State of New York, and of the country generally, may rejoice in the knowl edge that the Democratic par'y is now prepared to put an end to tiepu ucan wickedness, and establ sh the Govern ment upon those principles of integrity and political wisdom which are exem plified in Jefferson and handed down through- a long line of Democratic statesman." Such is tbe tone of the New York Democratic press. Th's is the attitude the party assumes with re spect to the present canvass and the Presidency, notwithstanding the open facts of the situation. To what nar.-ow straits are Democratic campaigns in deed reduced that they can make no better endeavor than to attempt to squeeze blood out of this kind of a tur nip!

To avoid liability to crusting with salt the churning should be done at as low a temperature as it will bear; and by reducing the temperature when the butter begins to form to fifty-four or fifty-five degrees the batter will form in fine granules and be in its purest and best condition.

Prairie Farmer. j Forethought In Farming. Perhaps of all the Industrial people farmers exhibit the least forethought in regard to their work. The changing of the seasons warn them to be ready to put in this crop or harvest that; but beyond a little skill In these farm p Dera tions, a large proportion oi tne farmers do not work to the best advantage; and the reason of it is because they do not plan their work previous to its com mencement they have very little method or system, especially about the small things oi the farm, if a mer chant or a newspaper publisher or a real estate dealer was to be correspond ingly heedless in his business, he would bcoome bankrupt In a short time A constant devising, a shrewd, calculation of the time to be employed in this job or in that, a careful employment of the slack" days in numerous little import ant p-.eces oi repairing, hauling, dig ging, etc.. are needed to keen a stress grasp on the larm and not let It get the start oi you. i ne real estate dealer or tho average lawyer goes to his office in the morning, attends to bis large cor respondence, keeps his necessary busi ness engagements (duties as hard in themselves to conduct in an orderly way as are farm operations), and goes home at night unharassed by thoughts of unperformed work that will hinder him in some busy season. .It is because tbey have trained, orderly minds. The farmer may claim that the number of different things on the farm demanding attention is much greater than in any other calling. While this may be disput ed, yet even granting it, tne re yet remains the truth that most farmers do not show an equal amount of administrative abil ity with the business men of the cities. They may be "chock" full of more hard days work than tbe city office people. but they can not make the work round up so well, and present ao finished an aonearance. Thus how many farmers there are who fail to employ the spare time after eorn- busking In attending to such seemingly but by no means unimportant things as mending a harness, repairing a fence or shed, examining the tools and iropl ments, and oiling, painting and mend- in? them if necessary: in looking after the fuel supply for the next year; in dig ging an ugiy-iooking stump, or remov ing a bad heap of stone and rubbish; in beautifying the house and grounds; and in many other matters, some of which. if not attendod to then, may be the cause of serious loss of time and a sad outburst of impolite language in the busiest part of the rear. A great mistake lies in supposing that good fa m management does not require a thinking, orderly and able mind as well as other pursuits. It Is just because the farmers, as a class, are not of that description that they are not adequately represented in our representative halls. and do not seem to wield their proper share of influence. The higher the ideal of agriculture becomes, and it is yearly rising, tbe more is the fact recognized that it requires no mean order ot ability to proper v manage a farm. There is room In it for all, and it affords a chance for the development of the higher qual ities of the mind. Lansing Hpnotvian.

Pigs In Com Tort. The more comfortable pigs can be made in winter the easier they can be kept and the less liable to disease. This an axiom which experience has demonstrated and which accords with common sense. Pigs are liable to catch cold from the same causes as persons namely, by draughts through cracks, open windows or doors, which will cause inflammation of the lungs, quinsy and catarrhal aneotions, or snutues. l have known pigs to have such severe attacks ot quinsy that they could not eat, and died; also to have the nasal or gans so closed up that they could only breathe with their mouths open, and it became necessary to syringe their nos trils with a cleansing decoction in order to allow tbe air to pass through. laying in a cold bed is iiaoie to pro duce inflammation of the bowels and rheumatism, which are common disor ders with pigs when exposed to cold. Shivering is not conducive to growth. An open pig-house must necessarily produce shivers, and hence is not a sen sible habitation for a pig. It is a fact that a pig can be wintered on half as much feed in a warm pen as would be required in a cold one. By h warm pen I mean a building constructed so that the cold can not get in nor the heat get out, by having tbe outer siding fitted tight and the inside lined with matched stuff. I would have the foundation walls laid in mortar, or if not would bank them up with dirt or manure so that no cold draught should come under tbe floor. A pig delights In sunshine In winter: hence I would place windows so that the sunlight could penetrate into the pen. When this is done tbe pig will on sunny days seek out the spot for its daily nap. No domesticated animal likes a dark apartment; therefore I would have windows to let the light in, though the sunshine might not extend directly into the pen. 1 he convenience of light for cleaning the pen and for caring for the pig will compensate for tbe expense of windows. A pen should be sufficiently roomy to admit of the pig stirring about, and when this Is so a pig can get in its pen all the exercise it re quires. On warm days, and especially In the spring, a pig will enloy an open yard where it can dig In the earth and get fresh air. When roots or swill constitute tno food of pigs it ia necessary that they should have warm pens to do well, it ia not noressary when they are fed' ex clusively on corn or other grain, as these foods contain more carbon (heat), and help the pig to withstand the cold. There is no practical sense, however, in going to the expense of raising grain to tight cola when a closeiy-maiin pen is so much more practicable and cheaper in tho long run. A well-made plg-hoose is the first requisite where pigs are to be kept, and should be an ornament to a farm rather than a thing unsightly and unsatisfactory. I have a notion that a nice pig-house naturally begets a dosiro for nice pigs ana good care, wnion win make them profitable.while the reverse, a shabby plg-houso, ten.le to Indifference as to pigs and their care, and, as a nat ural result, no profit- f . v. uunis, iv. x. irtoune. Feeding Roots. Turnips and rutabaga are the etiaiont roots grown, but mangels and beets aro tne best. 1 ne cosuy culture, nowevor. of the latter roots is a great obsla-lc. and while many farmers grow turnips and rutabagas, few grow beets and mangels. Vet mangels and sugar-beets are better ieea lor cows man turnips. because they are much sweeter, and consequently more nutritious, and are devoid of any ill flavor. The manner of feeding them, therefore, is more simple, and nothing b required but to slica and give them to tbe cows. But the strong flavor of turnips and more especially that of rutabagas, makes some care and caution neonsaary, or the flavor may be communicated to the milk. This flavor is vry volatile. We have . smelled it distinctly from the cows, and tasted it in the milk: within two hours after they hud eaten the roots in a field into which they had trespassed through an open gate. But being so volatile, it soon paxses off and disappears In the constantly active transpiration tnrougn tne sum. 1 nese conditions make it an easy matter to feed theso roots so as to avoid the ob jection. If they are fed immediately before milking there is no time lor the odor to pass into the blood and per meate the cow s sy9'.em, and tne miik ing may go on safely. If they are fed directly after milkln;, fie odor has all escaped and passed off 'through the skin before mucn nut nns oeen secreted, or has left the milk which has passed into the udder. In this way there will be no trouble. But in feeding any kind of root-i thete is danger of choking. A cow must necessarily throw up her head to get a slice or p eco of a root of cons'derablo size between ner teetn. - At times, and unavoidably, a piece will slip past the teeth and into the gullet, and if too large to pass down, will form an ob struction, which must be removed, or the cow will perish. It is not easy to remove this. Sometimes a tablespoon- ful of sweet-oil. melted lard or linseed oil poured down the throat will make A easy to work the obstacle up or dow.n. If not, the safe-it thing is, at onoe to take a sharp, small knife and to out down not across the gullet diyertly oyer the obstruction, firet through the skin and muscle and then through the gullet, and make a s'it large enough to remove the piece of root. This is safer than to force anything down the throat to push the root down intO the stomach. The cut is drawn together by two or three separate stitches In the gullet and as many as may be needed in the skin, leaving the ends hanging out of the wound, so they may be drawn out when the edes of the wounds have united. This is a perfectly safe operation, and is, of ct urse, effective without any seri cus injury being done. If the piece is forced down to the entrance to the stomach and no further it is then past relief, and the animal will perish, for ft can not be brought back again.

There has beea a rreat deal said oa the question as to what became of the Confederate srold and silver thai was brought to Washington about the time that hostilities ceased, and, the more that is sa;d and written the deeper the matter is veiled in myster; but there Is a silver half-dollar of this monev that tho Gmzett can vouch for, and ft can be sen at any time by calling upon Captain J. T. Irwin. There was some silver that was left in General Toomb's front yard by General Breckenridge who instated that the former should keep it. General Toombs, who refused to let it be left for him, found that it was left in the yard, and had it carried, down town to some of tho authorities to be' paid out to the soldiers. Captsfyj Irwin was among the soldiers whtowty.-e paid, and he received 2.50 ai.hisjWro rata. Ho thus sacredly kept, a half dollar of this monev because It was the last the Confederate Government was able to pay its men. "Washington (Oa.) Gazette.
