impossible for tliem. to kick, and
if they -fie' ddwH or fall, they
cannot ; break the sliafts, they

go ahead or backward, and it is almost
impossible to upset, the shafts being a
little back of the axle, so as to have
no weight on the colt's back. Drive
in this way a few times on the track,
then take out on the road sb as to use
them to company and excitement.
After being broken well in this way,
then turn them out lor six weeks; then
take them up and begin training to

till well broken, and then but a little
way at a time."
31 tiles on the .Farm.
A correspondent of the Buffalo Live
Stock Journal writes: That- mules are
much better than horses on tho farm,
no one can doubt who has used them
together. The mule will do more work
than a horse, on less food, and is rare-
ly.disaased. They will not endure .the
abuse ot a hard driver as the patient
horse wil, and very often, as an Irish
man said, "get up on their ear," and
drive the keeper from the stable. Of
the many mule teams which have come
under my observation, I never knew
but oneinulo to die before reaching
old age, and in this case, death was
caused by overfeeding, in September,
when he had" previously had no grain
for a long ime. Some people say
mules are worthless to drive on the
road, but.they are slightly mistaken;
One "of my neighbors has a mule team
that can go their mile in three minutes,
with a lumber wagon. But some of
the'fancy men would say, a mule is a
homely thing. There they are wrong
again, for in Louisville, Ky., I saw as
handsome mule teams as any man
would wish to see. They were perfect
beauties; one span, in particular, was
coaj black,, and looked slick as kittens,
they were the envy of many a man,
and could have been sold for a thou
sand dollars at any time. If any man
wants to see good mules, let him go to
Kentucky, where they make a business
of breeding them. These are only a
few hints upon the use of these valua
Value of a Thoroughbred Bonn

on them, which, if practised a few
years, will produce porkera equal to
the pure, blood. But graded or impure
males should never lie used, as the
tendency is to run back to the scrub.

Courier-Journal writes from Scooba,
Miss., as follows: In England and
Ireland they have the "sod fence." I

er. Only dig two ditches four feet
apart, three leet wide and two feet
deep; throw the dirt from the llitchcs
on the space between; beat it down un
til it has some hardness, and give it
enough slant to prevent "caving" and
you have a fence for a lifotime. In
most eases here we. need no turf or
"whin-bushes as they do, for in a year
the bank will be covered with a luxu
riant growth of blackberry bushes,
answering, eyery purpose. Even where
timber is plenty, we can make this
fence cheaper than almost any other.

A' Free Horse at Rent.
During the pioneer days of Ionia, Mich.,
the town had an editor who was patient
and long suffering. Some of the members
of the church got him to give 20 toward
Securing a minister; then they wanted their
religious notices inserted free; then he was
asked for $25 toward helping to build a
parsonage, and he finally found that he
was giving the church more than he gave
his family. lie nevertheless hung, on. for
a time longer, until one evening he went
to prayer-meeting and was asked to leave
his office I'or'a week and go and help clear
the grounds for a camp-meeting. ' That
was the last straw, and he arose up and
"Gentlemen, I'd like to go to heaven
with you. 1 know you all. You are
clever-and obliging, and kind and tender,
and it would be nice for us all, as a con
gregation, to go in together, but I've con

my wife should die, she'd have to go to
The congregation seemed to realize that
a free horse was being rode to death. They
let up on the editor, and pacified him. He
even had a special tent assigned him at
the camp meeting, and all was well.

turnpike, drew rein at midday before an

REPRESENTATIVE AND CHAMP

THE ART-JOURNAL OF AMBRICA,.
MAGXIFICANT CONCEPTION WON
DERFULLY CARRIED OUT.
The necessity of a popular mediant for the
representation of the productions of oar great
artists has always been recognised, and many,
attempts have been made to meet the want
The successive failures which have so invariably
followed, eaeh attempt in this country to estab
lish an rt journal, did not prove the Indifeih
ence of the people of Amerisa to- the .claims, of
high art. . So soon as sv proper appreciation of
the want' and an abjlity to meet U were shown,,
the public at once rallied with, enthusiasm to
its support, .and the remit was great artistia
and commercial triamph THE ALDINE
The Aldine while issued with all of the regu
larity, has none otthe. temporary or timtly in
terest charaeterittio of ordinary periodicals.
It is an elegant, miscellany of pure, light, and
graceful' literature, and a collection of pictures,
the rarest collectioa of artistiasillf, tn black,
and white. Although each succeeding number
affords x fresh pleasure to its friends, the real
value and- beauty oi The Aldine, will be mpst
appreciated after It is bound up at the "close of

The national feature, of The Aldine mast be
t.ken,la. no Oarrow'sense. True art is cosmo
politan.; While Th Aldjne is a strictly Ameri
ran institution, it does'not confine itself to the
peprodnetion of native art. Its mission is to
cultivate" a'broaoTanTap'pHciaUve art faststbna
that will discriminate oa grpuads.aI,intrUsi
merit. Thus, whiWfWadisgoefore'thepatrons
of The Aldine, as a leadinseharscteristis, the
productions of the most notsd American artists,
attention wflV always ba glres to specimens
from foreign masters, giving subscribers all the
pleasure and Instruction obtainable from home
or foreign sources.
The artistia illostratlon of American, scenery,
original with Tha Aldine is an important fea
ture, and its magnificent plates'' are ef a site
more appropriate to the satisfactory treatment
of details' than eaa be afforded by any inferior
page. The judicious interspersion otlandseape,
marine, figure anoTanima subjects, sustain an
unabated interest, impossible where the scope
of the work confine the-artist-oo closely to s
single style of subject. The literature of The
Aldine is a light and graceful accompaniment,
worthy of the artistio features, w ith only suets
technical disquisitions as do not interfere with
the popular interest of the worS.
