Four Miles Ahoad.
With hopes and with fear we tent them forth, And they wintered them tntho frruo.i North j a wo winters they upent In the arctic tio, Where slowly they perished, and ono ty ono. But surely wo ought to bo well content, Ag tow aril the polo our ex idorors went. And they marked the exploration line Four miles al.eii'1. Oh! Imt the record Is wondrous flno, With iiiiielecndead. How mnnv I that to the mile? Hold on! The record 1 made and the work is none, Ifcoutih mod ol tlicin perilled along the track, , , We out lit to be Ihiinkful that mx eiutie hack.

Ouo evening, about two yours 110, I weut to spi ii'l a coujilij of hours with my Ueitr old friend and neighbor, Mini:, tie Lorgercl. Awaro of her cxtruinu fondness for ilowers, I took with mo a bunch of yellow roses, her especial fa vorites. On this evening, as on many another, 1 found her with an old gen tleman who had about a year before come into that neighborhood to take possession of an adjoining jrojerty, left him by a distant relative on condi tion he would change his name to that of Descoudrais. I was quite- jealous of the intimacy thut soon had sprung up between him and my dear old friend. On the evening in question they were busy over a game of 'irie-trac." I en tered softly, so as not to disturb them, and waited until the game was over to present my roses. Mine, do Lot-gcrel's face was brightened with genuine de light, but, to my astonishment, M. Descoudrais became most strangely ab stracted and thoughtful. "Would you believe it, my friend," ho said, at length, "those Ilowers have evoked, as if by enchantment, a whole epoch of my youth, lor a few mo ments 1 was again 2 ) years of age, and in lovo with a woman, who, if living, must now bo fully Co years old. 1 will toll you the whole story, one that in fluenced my whole after-life even now, when old ago has left mo barely ener gy enough to play at tric-trac, tho re membrance of my youthful lovo fills mo with emotion." (Jver forty years ago, just alter I had left college, my father, without consulting me, sought to obtain a post for mo in a certain regiment quartered in tho littlo town of X -, for which piaoo I received orders to depart at once. This was distressing news for more than ono reason; I had no special lovo for tho army, though that objec tion was no great one, aw at that lime of my life, tho nioro sight of a gay uni form or tho sound of martial music Bulliced to lire my ambition into becom ing a Ciesar or ua Achilles. Hut, worst of all, 1 was in love, und dated not tell my father, whoso answer, 1 knew, would have been an order hastening my departure. Fortunately I had an uuelo and what an uncle! At that time ho was as old as I am.uow, though still retaining all tho vigor and fresh ness of youth. Ho was tho confidant of our follies, loves, debts and aspira tions, 1 went to him: ' Uncle, I am most unhappy." "1 bet twenty louis you are not!" "Ah, uncle, do not lost besides you would lose your bet.' "If 1 lose, I pay. l'erhaps that might help to console you." "No; money has nothing to do with my wretchedness. Father has just ac cepted a lieutenancy for mo in the regiment." "A misfortune, indeed! Tno uniform is most becoming, and all the olUoers are gentlemen." "But, undo, 1 don't wish to bo a sol dier." "Not a soldier! Aro you a coward, by chanco?" "I do not yot know, uncle; neverthe less), I know you aro tho only man that might daro doubt my courage. " "Well, Cid, my boy, what is your ob jection to tho army? "I wish to marry." "Nonsense!" "Nonsense or no nonsense, I am in lovo." "And you call that a misfortune! I would I wcro in lovo niysolf. Who is ahoP" "Oh, uncle! an angol!" "Of courso I knew that before; thoy always aro angels. What I ask is to what namo your angel answers whon they call her?" "NaomL" "Humph! Naomi might bo enough for you; but I would liko to know to what family this angel belongs?'' "Sho is a Miss Amelot." "Indeod! Then sho is truly an angel. A tall, graceful brunette, with dark eyes, soft as velvet. I approvo your choice." "And if you but knew her" "I do know her. Does she lovo you?" "I do not know." "What! not know! You aro un worthy of me. At her house every evening and yet not know if sho loves you!" "Sho does not even know of my love." "I'shaw! little you know about it. Sho knew you loved her at least fifteen minutes before you knew it yourself." "What 1 do know, at all events, is that I will die if slie bo not mine!" Oh, no! Softly, my boy. There aro many reasons why sho should not be vours. Your father is far ricln r than H ura anil ixcitiil.l n nnap itn u..i.i 4 I. t would never consent to the match." "In that case, uncle, I know what I will do " . "Nonsense! Do nothing silly. Lis ten to me. You cau not marry at 20." "Whj not?" "Because I do not wish it, and with out me this marriage can never take plaoe." Oh, dear ancle, I beg " "If the girl lores you, and is willing to wait three year " "Three years!" "Peace, or I shall say 'oar. II wlllingr then, to wait throe years, you will Join your regiment" Oh, uncle!" "But not this ono. I will havo you exchangod into ono quartered within a fow niilos, and you may como homo for three months every year until tho term of probation Is over. ' "Well, if it must bo But how shall I know if .sho loves meP'' "Why. ask her, of courso." "Oh, I should never dare." "Well, then, oboy your father, and pack oil' at once." "Ah, uncle, you do not know Naomi. A hundred times havo 1 tried to declaro my passion; I havo even composed speeches, and learned them by heart; but at tho moment of speaking my courago wanes, and each word chokes me. Her expression is so sweet, but yet so gravo. Tho man worthy of her is not born. Writing was useless. When my elVusions were penned and ready to bo sent, their utter foolishness struck mo so forcibly that I was at pains to tear my notes into small pieces." "Nevertheless, you must niako up your mind to spoak at onco. Your father has not told you all; ho sends! . 1 I . .. , ,l ....i In (' nrmnnt been I4n Ins frinml thn i ,7 m i i t - . i .-. . i t Colonel's daughter J destined to be- Come your uuue. it numu muuuu uu a good match no protestations thi3 is as nothing, if you are really in lovo with Naomi. Lovo is folly but it is a kind of folly I should regret never having been guilty of. Old peoplo may call it nonsenso, but perchance, tho non3enso is theirs. If the girl loves you you must sacrilico all for her 'tis stu pid, maybe, but right. Wo must first ascertain if sho loves you, and now is tho time, for they seek to marry hor. Ah, ha! that makes you shudder and grow pale! You long to have your ri val at sword's point, as wo used to say in my young i:tvs. Well, courage; fare your beautiful Naomi. If you are rieh .t than she, her intended husband is richer than you, besides having a title and being q iile ready for tiio ccre monv; her trousseau is even being hum You are not prepared; go to lier. declare your love s!ie knows it. but one is always expected to make the declaration. If she loves you sho must for you are handsome, young ami clever. If she is willing to wait, write mo so in a letter which I may keep; then I will prevent this other all'air, get your exchange, and in three years marry you to Naomi in spito of your father in spite of tho devil himself." "I have an idea." "Well?" "1 will write to her." "Very well." "After leaving my dear uncle, I sot about writing that note. Tho writing was no ditlieult matter, for I had done it a hundred times before; tho puzzle was how to givo it to her. However, Ihoro was no time for indecision, so I soon made tin my mind, and, having purchased a bunch of yellow roses, I slipped my declaration in among tho flowers. I still recall tho words of that noto. After declaring my passion, I besought Naomi to lovo mo a littlo in return, and to wait threo yours lor ma. If sho consented, I asked her, as a sign, to wear ono of my roses that evening. Then would I daro to speak of my of our future plans." "Ah! you hid that note in tho bou quet?" breathlessly interrupted Mine. Lorgerel. "Yes, madame." "And then?" "Well, Naomi wire no flower that evening, i was desperate, and in my misery sought to take my life. My good uncle look mo to Clermont, stayed there two months, and did all in his power to distract my thoughts from Naomi, declaring sho could never real ly havo cared for me." " "But, uncle," I used to object, "she always seemed so pleased to see me, and reproached mo so gently when I camo later than usual." "Women seek tho lovo of all men, but caro for very few." At length I succeeded in banishing Naomi's imago from my heart. I mar ried the Colonel's daughtor, who, eight years Inter, left mo a childless widower. My dear undo has been long dead, and I am now alono In the world. Would you believe it, my friends? I often to this day think of Naomi, and sho is still to mo, though now quito an old lady, the Naomi of my story my first lovo a tall, graceful girl, with auburn hair, and, as my uncle used to say, black, velvet eyes." "You know not what became of her?" "No, madamo." "Then your namo is not 'Descou drais'?" "No; that is tho namo of my uncle's estate; in;no is d'Altheim." "I knew it!" "Why? how?" "I will tell you what become of Na omi sho loved you." "But tho noto tho roses? ' "She never found your note. Your sudden departure cost her many bitter tears, and then sho married M. do Lor gerel." "M. do L irgerel?" "Whose widow I am." " Then you you are Naomi Amelot?" "Yes; just as you are, or rather, as you are not, the Kdmond d'Altheim ol my youth." "To think we should meet one day as strangers!" "Yes, and then only to play at tric trac" "The roses " "Are here. 1 always kept them." And Mnn. do Lorgerol, with hands '.hat trembled slightly, drew from an ibuny cabinet near by tlio withered bunch of yellow roses. "Unfasten them, .quick!" exclaimed M. Descoudrais. She did so, and there among the llower, now almost dust, found the note, where it had lain con jcalod for two and forly years. From 'he French. m s Wlutt a Hoy Won't Do.

Improving Springs so as to Afford Water for Slock in Pastures Women os Fruit-Growers. The Advantage ol'llyc asa Forage Crop I 'arming in Indiana. THE WATF.lt SlTl'LY FOR FARMS. The natural supply of water for prai rie farms is generally not what is do sired. There is generally quite too much surface water during tho springy and tho latter portions of the fall, and a great'scarcity of water at thoso sea sons of tho year when it is most want- ed for stock purposes, ihoro aro Ihoro aro In I UtUllV UiagVa l.iVLna UUU blJUb uvu- . . J ' . . ? ...a.... ..inn.,,. ...iiiilru n I. .1 1 1 - , . tK.it i tain water at certain times In tho year, ' u 1Jkw, t(J conUn tOQ -m. ly to contain too many purities for domestic purposes as for stock. Where tho surfaco of tho ground is quito level there aro few streams that furnish good water, (iood springs aro also scarce Whero they do exist they aro likely to bo on quito low ground that tilfirds too littlo fall for carrying off the water. Thoy aro ac cordingly likely to becomo filled up, if they are neglected, as thoy generally are. Tho water saturates tho soil for a considerable distance about them and causes a luxuriant growth of undesira ble vegetation. It is often easy to clean out these springs and to convey the water they afford by means of pipes to troughs, which can bo located on dry ground whero animals can drink with out sinking into the mud. Tho basin excavated about tho spring cau bo in closedif it is a pasture so that cat tle will not enter it and render the wa ter muddy. The fall necessary for con veying water through a pipe need bo but slight, provided it is uniform. An inclination of one foot in a hundred is amply sufficient to sccuro a good flow of water. If the pipes aro composed of suitable material, and aro carefully placod in position, an inclination of six inches in a hundred feet is sufficient. The pipes may bo of wood, lead, or iron. Generally iron pipes, such as aro employed for convoying gas, will bo found to bo the cheapest. Tho lengths aro fastened together with screw coup lings that aro easily adjusted. If dc sirablo a faucet can bo fastened at tho end where the water is discharged. If tho pipes aro quite small tho end at which tho water enters should bo pro tected by wiro gauze, that will keep out grass and other substances that will obstruct the flow of water. Excellent water may often be ob tained from tho springy places on tho sido al tho slight elevations on prairie farms. Sometimes an aero or more of laud in such a situation is permanent ly moist, and tho ground in such a con dition as respects moisture that it can not bo put in cultivated crops. It pro duces grass, but is very diflicult to cut it with a machine, as tlio horses draw ing it will bo likely to sink in tho moist ground. It is difficult to curotho grass when cut. If the land Is devotod to pasturage it will bo of littlo value. Tho quality of tho grass will bo poor. The surface will bo uneven, as cattlo will break tho soil in tramping over it, Thero is a good supply of water some where on tlio ground. Although tho location of the spring is not visible, careful investigation at the time of year when the ground is driest will general ly result iu discovering whero tho water issues from the subsoil and ap proaches tho surface. Tho place may often bo located by tho uso of a strong pointed stake. By taking out a fow spadesful of earth hero and thero, it can bo ascertained whero tho water fills tho cavity quickest. A woll-defln-od, boiling spring may ofteu bo found with littlo trouble. When it is found all that i3 necessary to do to obtain a good supply of excellent water is to make a suilablo excavation, to wall it up with stouo liko a well or to placo a hogshead in it. Tho water may bo conveyed from tho spring thus improv ed by means of a pipe as beforo sug cestod. Sometimes thero is no well lieliuod spring that is, no considerable amount of water issues from tho sub soil in any particular spot, although a largo qnantity approaches tho surface within the distance of a few rods. Whon this is tho case tho judicious em ployment of tilo will carry off tho wator to a reservoir at which cattle can drink or from which it can bo convoyed to a pasturo some distance off. The re claiming of tho laud and rendering it tit for producing annual crops and good grass and clover will moro than pay tho cost of doing tho drainago and utilizing the water drawn off for stock purposes. Tho cost of digging and stoning up wells is not usually very great, biit tho cost in labor of raising tho water is considerable. It is very hard work to raise water from a well for a largo stock of cattle, oven if one has tho ad vantage of a srood hand-pump. Wind mills for raising water aro expensive to buy, and in this part of tho country, whero violout winds prevail, they aro very liable to injury. Persons owning farms that join would do well to com-. bine in digging wells to supply water for stock and in the purchase of wind mills. Ono largo well and a good wind mill may often servo for supplying wa ter sufficient for tho stock kept ou four farms. By having tho pastures on tho portions of tho farms that form corners near where tho well is situated the stock kept in all of them may bo sup plied with water during tho summer at a comparatively small outlay for oach farmer. Tho water may bo raised and stored in an elevated tank, from which it can bo conveyed to a drinking trough in each of the four pastures. If occasion requires it may bo conveyed a long distanco in tubos placid above the surfaco of the ground. Thero are many advantages in Laving more than one place in a pasture where animals can drink. Especially is this the case when the weather Is quite warm. Daring the Tory hot days in July and August cajtle will not unfrequently suffer from thirst rather than travel a considera ble distance to obtain water. Farmers can combine to good advantage in sinking artesian wells. The cost of conveying the water from one farm to another is much loss than that of sink ing a well. Ono well, if properly sit uated, may bo mado to supply several farms with water. By a jud cious ar rangement of pipes tho water may be conveyed into tho house, stable, feed ing yard, and pasture. Few persons appreciate tho great convenience of water obtained without tho trouble of raising it from well or cistern. WOMEN AS Ht LIT GROWERS. A correspondent of the Chicago Tri bune writes from Lacon, 111.: Thero is many a town whero berries and grapes aro scarce and nono seen upon tho market. Thero Is, in every such villago or city, ono person at least who could do a great deal toward sup plying this deficiency in fruit, and at tho same timo helping themsolvcs fi nancially. This letter is written for tho special benefit of women, but men aro not debarred from taking some of tbo advico themselves. Many a widow, with a large garden spot or a few acres of land, has a hard time to keep tho wolf at bay and pro vide a support for herself and family. Any woman can mako a successful living by raising berries, and any wo man' who docs raise them can had a quick and profitable markot for tho berries in her own town. Tho peoplo would bo glad to patronizo such a de serving person, and success would surely crown tho efforts of tho grower. Tho real, hard work of raising ber ries is at the beginning. At the very first opening of tho idea of such a busi ness; at tho timo you arc wondering, doubting, and guessing; at the initial steps, there comes tho hardest work of tho wholo business getting yourself reconciled to yourself for the start and overcoming discouragements. Tho suc ceeding days, months, and years that you aro engaged in this delightful and fascinating occupation will be as noth ing so far as hard and worrying anxie ty is concerned as compared to tho strain of making the first cll'ort. All that is necessary is to raiso tho berries, and just beforo they aro ready for market go to tho local grocer and say to him that you havo a quantity of berries to put on tho market. Ho will sell them for you, charging 10 or 15 per cent for his services if ho pays you cash, but paying you full rotail price if ho pays you in goods for the fruit. Thus your market is sccurod, and all you need do will bo to put your crop into boxes and thoso into cratos hold ing sixteen or twenty-four boxes. Those boxes and cratc3 are very cheap. The marketing of berries is simple and easy and need give no caro to the woman who raisos fruit. It is not easy to think of a work which uffords a moro independent, re spectable, healthful, and pleasant oc cupation than is found in tho cultiva tion of small fruits. A woman of reas onably industrious habits cau in a short timo becomo independent through tho cultivation of two or threo variotios of fruit, even if sho does not add to that work, as sho can easily, tho keeping of 'bees, of poultry, or of sonic other oc cupation which may bo followed at homo without interfering with tho care of the fruit. I have not named any special kinds of fruit that I thought best to grow, for that is a very difficult thing to do without knowiug tho circumstances of each case; but as an easy fruit to han dle, and a prolitablo one, with tho greatest average certainty of success, I would name tho strawberry. I hope that some women will give this idea more than a passing thought and act on this advice, for I know that they could mako it win. RYE AS A KOKAGE CKOl. Winter pasturage can bo obtained in no hotter way than by sowing rye in a tield of growing corn between tho mid dlo of August and tho first of Septem ber. It may bo sown broadcast and coverod with a light harrow or cultiva tor, such as is often used for working corn, or it may bo put in with a- ono horso sood drilL It will bo several in ches high and will completely oover tho ground by the time tho corn is ripe enough to harvest. If tho corn is husked on tho stalks or tho ears are picked off and husked in the barn, tho stalks with their leaves will protect tho rye all winter. Stock turned into tho field af ter the corn is husked will find an abundance of both green and dry food. Tho ryo will furnish tho first and the corn loaves tho last. If tho winter is an opon ono cattlo can obtain a bito of groon food till grass appears in tho spring. Tho ryo will commenco grow iug as soon as tho frost loaves tho soil, and will all'ord tho first green food. Early in tho spring tlio corn stalks should bo cut closo to tho ground. Af ter affording excellent pasturage in early spring, the ryo and corn stalks can bo turned under and tho ground planted in corn again. This plan of securing green food during the winter is quito largly practiced in tho states south of the Ohio river, with tho best results, and it is deserving of trial in many other sections of the country. The cost of the seed is trifling and tho labor attending the seeding very small. Tno value of the rye that is turned un der is considerable in keeping up tho fertility of the soil. Animals arc cheap ly kept aud they thrive well in a field where thero is both green and dry food. Their droppings aro deposited whero they aro wanted so that tho labor of handling manure is saved. Poultry keepers will find a ryo field very bene ficial in parts of tho country whero the snow-fall is light. We loarn from tho Colonics that a monkey signalman manages tho rail way traflic at Witenhage, South Africa The human signalman lias had tho mis fortune to lose both his legs, and has trained a baboon to dischargo his duties. Jacko pushes his master about on a trolly, and under his direction works tho lever to set tho signals, with a most ludicrous imitation of humanity. Ho puts down the lever, looks around to too that tho correct signal is up, and watches gravely the approaching train, his master being at hand to correct any mistake.
