It will lie scon that the pile opens either way. The latch is the old fashioned mod em spring, and is tripped by wires which pass through pulleys on the heel post of the gate and thence to the crank posts. The opening is done by cranks, which turn small pulleys, around each of which a snuill rope (preferably a tarred rope) is passed, the rope altio pussing around a similar pulley fixed to the heel jiost of the Kate. In order to give sufficient friction it may be necessary to pass the rope twice around the pulleys. Shying Horses. A horse shies, as n rule, licence he sees fcomething which he does not understand.

A Well Arrungpit Cow MhIiIp. An arrangement for a cow stable is de scribed by a correspondent of The Iturol New Yorker, who reports it as not only simple but entirely satisfactory in its workings. As may be seen in the accompanying cut, the feed boxes (A A) are nailed to the outside of t hi cover. This cover or front can be let down by means of hinges (B15) when a a a q grain is to be ft and raised again for feeding hay. The boxes are made by nailing four si u a re boards toetls-r The Kit torn of the manger is show n nr. ('. wilh the stanchions at F.. n'i: im.an i r .w.i.k. The cows stand with their front feet on I), which is a gravel lhur two feet four indies wide. The founda tion is of cobblestone with nearly a foot of gravel on top, well pounded down. F is a double floor; inch boards are laid double so as to break joints. It is water tight. The lioards are laid on 2x4 scantlings bedded in the gravel. This platform has a slope of three inches. The manure gutter t(j) is water tight, nailed together with 20-penny nails. II is a gravel walk next to barn. When the feed box is raised it is fastened by a catch helrt to the f-tudding. Ilpt Varieties of I'onN. "What variety shall I breed'-" is an ever recurring question that receives each season ever varying answers. A verj sensible reply is thai of The Southern Cul tivator, which is, in brief, that no one can answer the question better than yourself. If your yards are small your common sense ought to tell you that large breeds, such a light or dark Brahma, buff or partridge Cochins, white Cochins or Mni?shns may suit you. Hither stand confinement well but need close attention to keep '.hem from getting too fat. They are all good winter layers, hatch and rear their young, and when fully matured are of enormous size. If, on the other hand, your runs are un limited, the leghorns, (Janied, lloudans, Sp&nUti and Hamburg are all good.

But above all in lueeding pure stock select the kind that suits you best. Oil unil Cotton Seed Meal. Oil and cotton seed meal are now so low that there are many places where they are the cheapest foods for stock. They are not adapted to feeding any stock exclusively, as their nutriment is too concentrated. A very"litt!e oil meal costing at wholesale a triile more than a cent a mhuk1 will make a good ration of any kind of well cured straw, which away from market is often considered to lie worth little or nothing. If by the use of concentrated foods with it the surplus straw, now mostly wasted, could be feil to stock, this alone would effect a revolution in farming and do ninth to put it on a profitable footing. I'ot Cult urn of Lum-ifolliuii Lilies. Few tiersons seem nwaro that the varieties of lily, called lancifolium, are admirably adapU-d for pot culture in the house oi on piazzas; while the trutn is, that with such cultivation they are far finer than when crown in the open border. For the decoration of terraces, porches, windows, conservatories, churches and the like, lilies grown in pots are invaluable for, treated' in this way, the plant, and blossoms attain a magnificent size and form and are most beautiful objects, as may be concluded from the cut given. From a dozen to thirty blooms on a stem and six to twelve stems in a pot may lie obtained, according to n k, who is ex cellent authority in all such matters, if giod bulbs are used, good care given and the following motif of procedure observed: Take of well decayed sods, which should be from medium loam and as fibrous as possible, three parts; good fibre iK-at, one part; or, if iieat is not at hand, leal moid well decomposed, and one part thoroughly rotted cow manure. If those who have not access to all these soils live near the woods and can, by first pushing slightly to one side the top and least decayed sur face leaves, obtain some good, light, top soil and leaf mold it will answer almost equally as well. If a little sandy so much the belter; if not, a little sand may lie added to give it the porosity which light or medium fibrous loam naturally has. If none but heavy loam can be obtained, use less of it and more leaf mold and sand, or decavi-d hops from a brewery may be sun stituted form leaf mold. In any case, do not forget to add a fifth part of well ik composed cow or hotbed manure. A LANi IrOLH'M I.II.V.

A New England experimenter finds that feeding apples to milch cows invariably lessens the flow of milk. In planting a new orchard some grow ers plant jH-ach trees ln-tween the apple trees. The (K-ach grows and Wars quickly, yielding largely before the apple trees need the space. Meat for the use of a small family can be smoked by suspending the hams from bars laid across a large barrel open at both ends and set above a smoldering fire. Corn cobs make a good smoke, and bay leaves and junijier lierries give an aro matic flavor. Cover the fiarre-l while smoking. So say s The Iowa Begister.

Ood had promised Abram that he should liecoine a great tiuUoti; that If., viool.l nmke his seed as the dust of the earth, and that He would give him the land of Caiman. As yet mere was no iiiiuiuueuii if either nromise. Abram had no son, ho did not own a foot of land (compare Acts vii. .1), and the years were supping last away, it w f,,p this reason that (!od apuoars to him in a vision and comforts him with the assur ance that II" i h's shield and that his rewanl 'shall bo exi-eedmg great (revise.l edition, 11 it vcrit iV Ahrnni at once thinks of nil in crease of his itossessious, and usks (Jod why . . ... ....... i. 110 SUllllIU fci'c nun iiiiiiii u - has no child.

He then leads him out and bids him hnik toward heaven, and count, if ho is able, the stars, which are sparkling witn all tin- nruinmey oi an Oriental sky. What an inspiring simile! Ills seed wan to lie as numerous as iue siars, and many of them were to shine as the stars until they should pale before the brightness of tho star of Bethlehem. (Compare Num. sxiv, 1" and Rev. xxii, 10.) Justification by Faith (v. d). This verse re cords two great facts: 1. Abram lielievcd in Jehovah; 2. Jehovah counted or reckoned it to him as righteousness. Abram's life, as we shall see, was one grand example of faith. He left his father's house liceause he U-lieved in Jehovah. At the most trying periods of his career, when other men's faith would have failed, his triumphed. Abram did not have t i i f u 1 f - It., God s written wora; nut. ne ionowvu .. will, as far as he knew it, cKsely. Whatever might bo his failings, ho had tho spirit of obedience. In this particular instance he be lieved Jehovah's promise that ho should have a son. God accepted his faith as righteous ness, that is, right living. But Abram's faith and works went together (James ii, 'Jl-A'-). He did tho things which Jehovah commanded because- he believed in Jehovah. He was feeding, as tho I'sahuist says, on faithfulness, and wus one of the just, descrilied by the prophet, who live by faith. His life fur nishes tho illustration of theapostoliedoetrine of justification by faith (Bom. i, 17; iv, It; Gal. iii, ; Hob. x, CK), w hich became the key note of tho German Ilefoi ination. TheSin of the Covenant (vs. 7, 8). Al though he believes that bo i to have a son, ho is still in doubt about the land. But God tells him that he has brought him out of Fr of the Chaldecstogivebimthe land. Abram asks a sign. God' condescends to give it to him, as he afterward condescended to give si ms to Gideon (Judges vt, 17, !;iV4(D, H- zekiah (U Kings x., 8-11) and even to Aha. (Isaiah vn, 11-14). Vs. 0, 10. The sign wlii' h God gave Abram was a covenant. In commercial language it was a contract that he cutt-red into v ith him. It was as though two people should make a deposit of a large amount of money, to be held by some trustworthy orson, and should agree by a written contract, properly signed and seahsl before a notary, that in case either of them should fail to fulfill the conditions of the agreement he would forfeit tho sum of money to tho other. Life, however, is more preciou ; than money. In this covenant Jehovah condescends to stand on equal terms with Abram, and thus really promises, as if he were a man. that if he does not fulfill the conditions of the cove nant he w ill forfeit his life (compare Jeremiah xxxiv, Vi, lS-i50). Covenant in Hebrew sig nifies something that is cut. Tho Hebrews speak of rutting a covenant where we spenk of making a covenant. Abram was to pre pare the prelimina.ies. Ho was to take a heifer, a she goat and a lamb, each 3 years of age, and was to divide them into two equal parts, putting one-half on one side and the other half on the other, leaving room to walk lietween the rts. He also took a turtle dove and a young pigeon, but he did not di vide them. The contract by which the land of Canaan was to be conveyed to Abram, as we might sav, was ready lo be signed and sealed, but before this takes place he must, understand its provisions. Conditions of the Covenant (vs. ll-P'.). These are indicated in the following verses. Naturally, but fittingly, the birds of prey, who foreshadow what is to lie revealed to him, light upon tho carcasses, and he drives them away. As the sun is going down a deep sleep falls upon Abram. It is tin same kind of sleep that Adam is said to have slept when Eve was created. The birds of prey, which mav le regarded as a symbol of evil, are followed by the horror of a gn at, dark ness. Through these natural portents his mind is prepared for the unwelcome an nouncement regarding his posterity. lbs seed is to lie a stranger in a land that is not theirs. They are to serve tho ow ners of that land, who will oppress them loo years. But on that nation God will visit sore judg ments. Afterward Abram's de ndants are to come out with great possesions. Abram is to m.i to his lathers in ;aee. In this passage there is an intimation of existence after death. Ho is to enjoy the greatest of tem poral blessings, according to the Old TV .la ment nana-iv, that of long lifeil'.x xx, !.'; I'rov. iii,:.'; Ia. Ixv.'Oi; In- i to U- buried in a good old ag. I" the. fourth generation, or in fol years, reckoning the word genera lion in its wid.-st signiticam-c of I'M years, his children are to return to Canaan, l our huu dred here is simply a round iiiimln-r, the ex act miml-r 1 in'g W years i Ex. xii, -i'Ml; 17). One thing is men tioned which stands, in the way of Abram's iumieliate possession of the land-the in iquity of the Amorito is not full. This is sig nihVant lanuag". Cod is slow in executing his judgments. He does not sw.s-p man from the earth through the tl'SNi until n is iuu oi violence. Punishment visited by him cannot lie hastened by a day, nor can it ! delayed when on-e the hour ha struck. Thus the provisions of the covenant are made clear to Abram. The Coveuunt Sealed (v. 17).- The covenant of Jehovah with Abram, sjieakinz of it as though it were a contract, was now ready V be signed. This was done by a smoking fur nace and a flaming torch, which were sym bolsof the divine presence pacing between the pieces. V. H. In this verse the substance of tho covenant is announced, aa well as the fa':t that God signed it. He gave Abram the land fromtbe river of Egypt-by which we are not to understand the Nile, l ut the Wady el Arish. which dividesthe l.n-eof theSinaitiC peninsula into two rt.s to the great river the Euphrates. It was the fault of Abram's heirs that they did not enter into OMession of this domain until the time of Solomon , I Kings iv, 21 j. POINTS TO BE !UM MEF.RED 1.

Just as the team were fairly around tho corner a slisl on which were a girl of fourteen and two small chil dren was two-thirds of the way down the hill and making straight for the team. The larger girl had evidently lost control of it and the children were screaming w ith terror ns it darted swiftlv under the horses' feet. 1 closed my eye to shut out the horrible scene which I felt was coming, but ojiened them again as a shout of relief and joy went up from the bystanders.

Iuiadne, for example, this lady clad in a voluminous gown of blue satin worked with flowers, with a white lace covering over her shoulders; an enormous headdress of white muslin irirt by a vast wreath of natural lunk roses and orange blossoms, with ponderous cold earrings road tins to her shoulders necklace and bract lets of gold, and a thor ough breastplate of antique goldsmith's work. She is a marvelous siectacle, anil sits still with her brow n eyes in a fixed stare, moving only when absolutely necessary, and then with the utmost Care for her decora tions. Other ladies have towering coiffures of white and crimson; dresses of blue, scarlet or green, and silver buckles in their shoes; and thev are all dotted with hits or goi.i. Another picturesque detail is the old Greek feminine headdress of a crimson skullcap wilh a gold coronal from which a thick gold to1 haul's at one side. Civilization has ousted this pretty and becoming headdress from Athens and the (.n-ek cities. Corfu merits tho more praise, therefore, for pre serving it.
