WHO WAS HE It NEIGHBOR! WHEN Jcr Mrs. Beardsley went to Dal- ton to live she knew very few people. She had lived in a city all her life, bot n educated well, and came of a cul tivated and rather proud family: but she was not proud in their fashion. She had always earned her own living in one way or another, chietly by writ ing for magazines and newspapers. Whatever the outside world may think, this is not a lucrative business, and our friend had other people to help on in life, so she had laid up nothing and, after a while, she married a poor man am! came to Dalton, a nourishing con :itry town, to live. They went to housekeeping in an old house, small am! inconvenient, but of pleasant out look, and, once settled, began to look aboatthem. "O, Fred! 1 do hope I shall have nice neighbors," said the little woman, as they sat at breakfast one day I don't know, Tina, how you'lllike them of course they'll like you.1' "That's very proper of you to say, sir," laughed Mrs. Beardsley, "but I am more apt to like people than they are to like me." This was quite true. Justina Beards ley was very honest, frank, uncon ventional antl acute she spoke her Blind too freely to be always a com lirtable friend. Human nature loves lattery and she never flattered how aver, our business is with her neigh bors. Up the street lived the Dean family. Mrs. Dean was a handsome, cool, calm sort of woman, with three daughters, all under fourteen. Her husband kept a country store, and had made some money her house was very fine, with shining furniture, Brussels carpets, and always strictly curtained, screened and blinded from sun and air. Mrs. Dean was a very good woman she never failed to attend every meeting there was. and she always went to church, rain or shine, and took her children to Sunday-School with the same persistence. She was a woman who did her duty in these respects earn estly and conscieniiously, and never could understand why every one else was not equally faithful. Now her new neighbor was not a strong woman, and her work was hard. It frequently happened to her to have a dreadful neuralgic headache on Sun day, and though she was accustomed in her youth to go to church as punc tiliously as the minister himself, and iad really overworked herself in the •Sty Mission Sunda}'-Schools, she fre- uently now spent the day of rejt on sofa, with throbbing pangs in her head and a back aching in every liber. Xor did she send Tommy, her little ive-year-old boy, to Sundav-School, for she preferred* to teach him "at home. "Have you been to see Beardsley's wife, my dear?" said Mr. Dean, one morning, about three weeks after the new neighbors made their appearance. "No, not yet. I thought I should not hurry. 1 do not think she is a very Ioes ood person to be intimate with. She not send her boy to Sabbath School, and hardly ever goes to church. I do not wish to encourage such a person to visit us freely." Mr. Dean said no more. His wife's Chin was square, and her lips thin he •feally respected her rather severe goodness. She did call on the new comer was a little horrified to find what common furniture she had, and how the sun streamed in on the old three-ply carpet and she went away, leaving behind her a chill such as fol lows an iceberg. Mrs. Beardsley knew she was disapproved of, and #hy, for she was quick of discernment •nd, knowing inwardly that she really 4id try and wish above all things to be tt Christian woman, she felt sad and •orry that her light did not shine bet ter. Then it occurred to her that after all God knew about it, and knew she did like to go to church, and did not like to be kept at home with neuralgia •nd exhaustion, so she left this new trouble to Him. Down the street Bved Mrs. Roberts, a well-to-do me chanic's wife. "I see Beardsley's folks have moved in," was the husband's comment. Yes, they have but I shan't trouble them with my company. She's a city Woman, and writes for the papers, be fjides. She won't want to see common iolks like iae. Mrs. Dean will call on presume to say, and the rich folks in town but I know enough not io go where I ain't wanted, and, more over, I never did like stuck-up folks." "I don't know but what we're just as good as she is, Mariar and if you come to the money p'int on't, 1 could buy an' sell Fred Beardsley over and ag'in." "Well, I guess you could but she's Eer.her ot own click, and I shan't trouble I believe in lettin' folks alone if they feel too smart for your kind. I never did push in where i wa'n't wanted, ana I ain't going to becrin Bow." So Mrs. Roberts stayed awav, strenu ously held her parasol to the east of her if her new neighbor wis Uut way. TTH although the sun blazed toward the west, and passed by on the other side. Mrs. Eeardsley comprehended the matter and laughed softly she would sometime undertake Mrs. Roberts, she thought, and convert her to her own theory of neighborhood but that time had not come yet. Next to Mrs. Deau lived Mrs. Morris she was a pleasant, energetic, talkative person an indefatigable church-goer, and a benevolent soul but she did not belong to the Blank Church, and the Beardsleys did she went to the Blanker house of worship, and did not care a cent about any other denomination. It did not afflict her much that Mrs. Beardsley was one of the inactive sis ters, because she was a Blank if she had been a Blanker, Mrs. Morris would have been as troubled as Mrs. Dean was about the new neighbor, though on a different principle. As it was, she called on her after a while but her time was so taken up with the Blanker Church, ber house was so filled and overrun with all the Blanker congregation, from the minis ter down to the sexton, she had so many weddings, and funerals, and so cieties, to attend, that Mrs. Beardsley hardly saw her in her own house for the next year, though Mrs. Morris' call was promptly returned. Next to Mrs. Roberts lived the Wa ters family, nice, kindly, plain young people Mrs. Waters' sister being the third member of the family. The hus band was a tinner, and it was in his shop where she was buying a tea-kettle that the new neighbor was introduced to theui. They meant to call, they were members of the same church to which the Beardsleys belonged, and lived only two houses away, but they were so shy! It seemed to be a sort of agony to them to speak before a stran ger they blushed and stammered, and looked every way but the right one. At last, after a year of waiting, they came one evening, but they never came again. Up above her, for the street was on the side of a gentle declivity, Mr. Beardsley had another neighbor, a car penter's wife, Mrs. Green. She, too, seemed to be shy at first, but was at tracted after a whiie by Justina's flow ers and Tommy's merry face. She was childless herself, and her one pas sion was flowers, and after the ice was broken she came in often, sometimes with an apple for Tommy, sometimes with a rose for his mother. Mrs. Rob erts had called Mrs. Beardsley proud and "stuck-up," but Mrs. Green did not find her so. She's real nice," was her unbiased verdict, as she walked home one night with the Waters family from prayer meeting. I did expect she'a be a little airy, seein' who her folks was but she ain't not a mite. She's as pleasant as pie. I dunno when I've set so much by a new neighbor as I do by her. Mis' Dean's a leetle too high in the instep for me and Mis' Morris, she don't care for nobody without they're a Blanker and you can't take no solid comfort with Mis' Roberts, she's so particular leest you shouldn't think so much of her as you'd ought to. But, my! Mis' Beardsley, she's just as easy as an old shoe. I wish't I hadn't stayed away so long, but you know, Malviny, 1 hain't no' hand to make ac quaintance with folks. I don't know as I should ever ha' knowed you if John hadn't been my nephew." Mrs. Waters gave a little laugh, but she did not say anything she did not remem ber much about her own call on the new neighbor but her own painful shyness. There was still another neighbor on the street, old Miss Betsey Parker, the tailoress, who lived in a small brown house next but one to the one which the lieardsleys occupied. She was a plain, uneducated woman, having plenty of common sense, and a cheerful nature no especial talent or bright ness, or charm of aspect, but she was an honest and bumble Christian. Mrs. Dean sent her sewing when she had it and Mrs. Morris found it very handy to have a tailoress so close by when her two big boys tore their clothes, es pecially as Miss Betsey went to Blanker Church. Beside these small sources of income she made shrouds from the Dalton factory, and coffin trimmings, the day of tailoress work having gone by and she owned the lit tle old house which was set about with cinnamon roses and lilacs, and had a garden devoted chiefly to corn, beans and squashes, though a great bunch of clove pinks and a cluster of red peonies adorned its border. She was the first neighbor whose acquaint ance Mrs. Beardsley made. While that weary woman was putting down her parlor carpet, she looked up at the sound of a kind voice, and saw a slat sun-bonnet peering round the edge of the door deep in its gingham vault Miss Betsey's cheerful face smiled at her. I thought mebbe I could help you someway. I live next door but one, and if you want anything I've got just send for it matches or salt or an extra hammer. I know how 'tis folks al ways forget somethin.' Mercy's sake! let me git hold of that stretcher! Them poor little hands of yourn ain't fit for such heavy work and suiting the ac tion to the word, she took Mrs. Beards ley's place, and the refractory carpet became docile at once, while poor Jus tina sat down on the floor and felt like crying from mere relief. "There, I wish 'twas the first instead o' the last. I live right up here in that small house with the lean-to, and if you want a thing I've got to help ye, send right up. My name's Betsey Parker." O, thank you. I was so tired!" was the rather incoherent answer but the very grateful look out of Mrs. Beards ley's expressive eyes filled it out for Miss Betsey. She had not stopped to consider her own position or her neighbor's, but came at once to see if she could help and this was only the beginning she brought many "a fresh egg over to tempt Justina's delicate appetite, though her poultry was only three bantam hens. And again and again, when her neighbor had a headache, she took Tommy home with her for the day, though she had sometimes to stay at home from church with him. She had no carriage like Mrs. Morris to give her neighbor a drive—as Mrs. Morris never did. She had no loaded fruit-trees like Mrs. Dean, who kept her pears and peaches for her own and the minister's family exclusively but her black-cap raspberries were more than shared with Mrs. Waters, as well as Mrs. Beardsley, and her currants were almost public property. I really hain't had enough for jell, this year," she said apologetically to Mrs. Green, and I do lot on jell, it's so good for the sick but then, fresh currants is real refreshin' this hot weather you know its been master hot right along for a spell, and there ain't but a few has got as good currants as mine be." At last Mrs. Beardsley fell ill of low fever she was very lonely, for Fred had to be all day at his work, and the girl in the kitchen had her hands full with Tommy and the housework. The doctor's gig at the door notified the neighbors of the trouble, and after it haa stopped there daily for a week, Mrs. Dean sent over her girl to inquire how Mrs. Beardsley was. Mrs. Mor ris met ber husband in the street, and asked him the same question. Mrs. Roberts was not concerned about the matter. Those upper-crust fo'ks keep sending in to ask I see I haven't never called there, so I ain't wanted nor needed now as I know of." But she did tell the doctor she was a good watcher, and would go if they oeuMa't get anybody aim, •f* Mrs. Waters had a little baby and could do nothing, yet she sent in a rosebud, the first from her One Cher ished bush, and Justina cried over it she was so weak Mrs. Green came over once or twice, and sent some custard but she "wasn't no use in sickness, so dreadful nervous," her husband said. Miss Betsey was out of town at first, but as soon as she came back not a day passed that she did not go over and cheer the sick woman with homely, earnest words of faith and hope and good-will. She went into the kitchen and made beef tea, she came up stairs and shook up her hot pillows, replen ished the fire, combed out the tangled hair with the gentlest fingers, and kept Tommy with her in the intervals, as long as he could be coaxed to stay. When Mrs. Beardsley was getting bet ter, the first day she could sit up, after Miss Betsey had made her comfortable with cushions and a footstool, the poor languid woman put her thin arms about the old lady's neck, and kissed her, and dropping her head on that sturdy shoulder burst into irrepressible sobs. Lawful sakes! don't ye do so, child! stop right off. Why, you'll be all tucK ered out when he gets home ef you do so. Now, stop right off!" "I can't help it," sobbed Tina you're so good, Miss Betsey you're a real angel!" "The mortal! You must be out o' your mind, child. Who ever saw an angel with yaller-gray hair and not but six teeth to show for't?" laughed the good old soul. You stop cryin' and talkin' about angels, and swaller your beef tea, or the doctor'11 be scoldin' of ye, for certain sure." When Mrs. Beardsley was well enough for change of air she went to the city to see her sister, who had just come back from Europe, and was nat urally eager to hear all about Tina's surroundings. "And have you got any neighbors, dear?" she asked, after many other questions. "One," said Justina, smiling. The question still remains to be an swered: "Who was Mrs. Beardsley's neighbor?"—Rose Terry Cooke, in Con gregationalisl. k Destructive Wind and Rain Storin Along the Atlantic Coast. BOSTON. Mass., August 19. Considerable damage was done by the storm last night aiong the New En gland coast. The yachting flee*, at South Boston was badly used. At Port land, Me., several yachts and schoon ers were sunk. Other towns along the coast report a long list of disasters to local craft and property. NEW YORK, August 19. Newburyport, Mass., experienced a storm this morning, and it was the se verest in ten years. The wind blew a hurricane, wrecking four yachts, badly wrenching steamers and schooners in the harbor, and scattering about twenty small boats. The fruit trees were stripped, and tents on the beach were leveled or blown into the sea. At Newport, between twenty and thirty sail-boats are sunk or damaged. Three yachts have sunk at the wharf, while others dragged anchors, fouled and were damaged. The velocity of the wind at Cape Mav was sixty-four miles. Total rainfall, 8 46-100 inches. The crew of a schooner ashore at At lantic City were taken from the rigging at three this morning by a life-saving crew. The vessel will be a total loss. Norfolk, Va., had the severest rain storm and tornado ever experienced. Many buildings are unroofed and flooded, trees uprooted, and shipping damaged. Many vessels are dragging anchor. The Boston Steamship Com pany's warehouses have been severely damaged. The wharves all along the river front and many of the ware houses have been flooded. The tide was higher than ever known, and the vicinity of Water street was only accessible by boats, the sight being un exampled even to the oldest inhabi tant." The handsome spire of the Freeman Street Baptist Church was blown down the slating of Christ Epis copal Church and the cornice and steeplo ornaments of St. Mary's Catholic Church were torn off, whilst the beautiful grounds of old St. Paul's are badly wrecked. Great anxiety pre vailed during the prevalence of the storm, and the Mayor ordered out the entire police force and Fire Depart ment. The loss is estimated from $200,000 to $300,000. The damage to growing crops in counties adjacent to Petersburg, Va., is very great. In Surrey County alone the damage to corn is estimated at fifty per cent. The Ocean Grove camp-grounds, be low Long Branch, suffered severely. At Gloucester, Mass., several vessels dragged ashore last night. At other points on the New England coast vessels were beached, but thus far no loss of life is reported. The storm at Morehead City, N. C., was the most violent which ever visited that place. At six a. m. it blew a hur ricane from the southwest, a change which saved Beaufort and Morehead from entire destruction. The Atlantic House, the largest ho tel in that part of the country, is en tirely demolished, not a vestige being left. There were one hundred and fif ty guests in it, and there was not a par ticle of clothing saved by any of them. The people did not begin to leave until the waves were literally breaking the hotel to pieces—then there was a stam pede. The young men saved all the ladies and children at the danger of their own lives. All baggage, furniture, etc., went to destruction. John Hughes, son of Major Hughes, of Ncw bern, lost his life in the wreck of the Atlantic House. The front street of Beaufort is strewn with lumber, trunks and goods, and crowds of people, some barefooted, are trying to identify their property. The Ocean View House, the other hotel at Beaufort, is damaged badly, and many private houses are ruined. There is not a wharf left in Beaufort, and only two or three of hundreds of sail-boats are fit to sail in. Morehead City also suffered terribly. NORFOLK, Va., August 19. The gale at Cape Henry was terrific, blowing out some of the glasses of the lighthouse, the first case of the kind on record. The damage to coasting-ves sels is very heavy, also to crops along the coast. FORTRESS MONROE, August 19. A tornado raged here yesterday, and the rainfall from seven a. m. until two p. m. was five inches. Shade-trees in and about the fort went down by hundreds. A Claim Against Great Britain for Fishery Damages. WASHINGTON, August 29. The claim for $103,000 damages on account of illegal interference with American fishermen at Fortune Bay, which has been presented to the Brit ish Government, is not a claim for the restoration of that or any other part of the Halifax award upon the ground of non-fulfillment of conditions. The present claim is for specific grievances, and is to be considered without reference to the amount of the Halifax award, with which it has noth ing to do. Mr. Welsh was instructed to base the claim for $103,000 upon the actual loss and damage sustained by American fishermen in consequence of the violent invasion of their treaty rights at For tune Bay, and to obtain some security against the recurrence of similar of fenses in the future. Advices received by the State De partment from, the North American coast represent that, although no act ual Violence has occurred this year, out- fishefmen ate deterfed by appre hensions of violence from approaching the shore and carrying on their busi ness with the freedom guaranteed to them by treaty, and that we are there fore deriving no benefit from our agree ment with the British Government, no return for our mon which pre coast fisher men and British American fishermen, who consider themselves justified in using force to carry out local pro hibitory laws, is regarded by our Gov ernment as extremely dangerous, and liable at any moment to lead to blood shed and serious international misun derstanding, and it is therefore very anxious that some steps shall be taken by the British Government to do away with the local prohibitory laws of the Canadian Provinces, which now prac tically override and nullify the treaty provisions of a far higher authority. mon I WHO uiu Dnusn v and getting no return fc ey. The state of feeling vails between our north Letters from the Arctic Explorers on Board the Vega." According to the Nya Dayligt Alle handa, a journal published at Stock holm, a private letter has been received in the latter part of June overland from Lieutenant Palander, the commander of the Vega, stating that all was well on board of the steamer. The mouth of the Lena River was passed on the 27th of August last. In the beginning everything was favorable, although the Arctic explorers had to contend with ice and shallow water. They succeeded in reaching Cape Jakan, but here for three days further progress was stop ped. That point was left on the 11th of September, and after many diffi culties they arrived, on the 13th, at Cape North, where they were shut up in ice until the 18th. After that the Arctic voyagers were only able now and then to advance, owing to the com pact ice. On the 28th of September they arrived at their present position in latitude sixty-seven degrees six min utes north and longitude 173 degrees thirty minutes west. Had that point been reached two days earlier the steamer would have been able to pass through Behring Strait. The Vega is not anchored in any harbor, but very near a shallow sand beach, and moored to solid ice. All hands are well and provisions plenty coal sufficient for a two thousand-mile cruise. One or two villages of Tschutsches had been passed. These natives were believed to originate from Greenland, and, judging from their ap pearance, appeared to be related to the Esquimaux. Their complexion is brownish yellow, hair and eyes jet black. They are dressed in reindeer robes, dwell in tents of hides and live on the fat of the seal. They are, more over, friendly disposed and accommo dating. The women's faces are tat tooed, the men's not. Their language is very difficult to understand, but the Swedish explorers have nevertheless acquired it and compiled a Swedish Tschutschean dictionary, embracing over three hundred words. Three camps of Tschutsches are on the shore in the vicinity of the Vega's anchorage. During September the temperature was never below three degrees, and five degrees Celsius was the coldest at any time. On the 21st December, the darkest day of the year, the sun was still above the horizon. The letters had been sent from the Vega by a vis iting native chief residing in the neigh borhood of Anadyrsk. The Polar ex plorers calculated to extricate them selves by the 1st of July, and to reach Japan by the 15th of August. We are enabled also to lay before our readers the following extract from the famous Arctic explorer's last letter to his family, which Mrs. Nordenskjold has had the politeness to place at our disposal. The letter is dated: On board the Vega, icebound on the north coast of Siberia, just east of Koljuschin Bay, latitude sixty-seven degrees seven minutes, longitude 173 degrees fifteen minutes west of Green wich, the 6th of October, 1878. Since I last wrote from the mouth of the Lena River the Vega has pressed forward, though with no little difficulty, to the vicinity of Behring Strait—t. e., to a part of the Polar Sea which is every year visited by whalers from the Pacific Ocean and trading vessels belonging to the American Alaska Company. These vessels have frequently left these waters as late as the middle of October. As a result from the northern and northwesterly winds blowing in these regions during the whole of September, it appears^ however, that this year a most unfa vorable condition of the ice has pre vailed in the Polar Sea, near Behring Strait. The ice-free channel which in the proximity of the coast facilitated our progress as far as beyond the mouth of the Lena River ended at the Basanow Islands, which we passed on the 3d of September. Since then we have gone forward through dense masses of floating ice so slowly that we did not reach the eastern coast of Kol juschin Bay until the 27th of September. The night of the 28th the ocean was covered between the glacial frag ments with new formed ice, so that we were forced to abandon further at tempts to proceed, but temporarily lay to, alongside some large floes of solid ice about half a mile from the beach. Three days later we were able to walk ashore on the new formed ice. Con sequently everything is as satisfactory as possible, in the event of our being obliged to spend the winter here. The coast is inhabited by Tschutsches, with whom we are in communication on most friendly terms, although, as these natives do not understand or speak Russian, we have some difficulty in making ourselves mu tually intelligible. Lieutenant Nord tfvist, however, has made a good beginning in learning their language. They declare unanimously that the ice will again break up but in the •vent their prediction should fail I send this letter by a Tschutsch chief, who hap pened to visit the village near our place of anchorage. It is most uncertain whether we will succeed in making him understand the meaning of the papers we hand him, and it is doubtful whether they ever will reach their des tination. All hands are well, the ves sel in perfect condition and the sup plies of coal and provisions abundant. The Tschutsch chief, who has appoint ed me to be the Ispravnik in Ochotsk, was pulled to the vessel, when he paid us his state visit, in a sleigh drawn by two of his dwarfed subjects."—.ft Y. Herald. A SUICIDAL passenger leaped from a British Channel steamer, and the mate instantly plunged after him. The crew laboriously cut away the canvas cov ering of a lifeboat only to find the craft half full of water, and when partly lowered she broke in two, dropping out the occupants, one of whom was drowned- The passenger had in the meantime succeeded in his suicide. A LADY took to the London Zoologi cal Gardens a pet snake which darted its fangs at a poor little monkey. A gentleman wrote to the London Times tnat "such exhibitions are most of fensive to the public eye, and if ladies do indulge in a taste for making pets of such reptiles, they must be warned by the police to keep within doora with them under penalties."

Grape-vines may be laid in a trench dug three inches deep, and then covered with soil and next spring a nice lot of roots will have formed, and the connection between the main plant and the layer may be severed. Hard wooded plants, such as roses, altheas, quinces, etc., should have a slit cut in the under side, into which a piece of glass may be inserted to keep the slit apart, aud then be covered to a like depth with soil. Hard-wooded plants root very readily in wet seasons, but not so well if it happens to be dry. Cor.

Directly the heu feels this incumbrance, she gets off the nest and runs wildly about the fields, striving in every way to free herself from it. Alter two or three days' useless struggle she resigns herself to her fate, and appar ently makes up her mind to submit to the inevitable. The wisp of straw may then be removed, and it will be found that recent exertions have so changed the current of her thoughts that she henceforth gives up all idea of sitting, and seeks consolation for her wounded feelings in diligently laying eggs.— Hcrr Volschaw. —It is only by repeated plowing and persistent hoeing that burrs can be killed. Where they infest ground on which small grain has been growing, plow it at once. This will oause a reat number of the burrs to sprout, n a few days, after they are all well up, harrow thoroughly. This will cause others to grow, and kill many of those sprouted. When the second crop is well up, plow the ground again, going a little deeper. Bemember that every burr has two lobes, and, until both have sprouted, the seed is not de stroyed. The same burr rarely sends forth two sprouts at the same time, and this double lobe is doubtless a wise pro vision whereby the species may be per petuated—though why it should be, we cannot find out.—Exchange. —Cattle grazing at the outskirts of woods, among brushes and shrubbery, and near old hedges, are liable to be troubled with ticks. Brushing the cattle over, once a week, with a mix ture of one part of kerosene and two parts of lard oil, will protect them from the attacks of these vermin. When ticks are found on cattle in con siderable numbers, ttoy should not be removed by force, because, in that case, the head of the tick will remain imbedded in the hide of the animal, and, when in large numbers, will be apt to cause considerable irritation and inflammation of the skin.

Swamp Muck and How to Prepare It. THE A convenient method is to dig out a broad drain three or four feet deep from the highest to the lowest part of the swamp. The muck may be thrown out upon the bank upon one side only, either in a continuous row or in heaps the latter is the better way, as it offers no obstruction to the escape of surface I virtue of well-decomposed swamp muck is at least equal to that of ordinary barn-yard manure. When it is free from sand, and consists wholly of vegetable matter, it is worth more than the average mixed manure of the barn-yard. A ton of barn-yard manure, in the condition in which it is usually applied to land, contains in round num bers 1,300 pounds of watfer, 570 pounds of organic matter, and 130 pounds of mineral matter or ash. There is only 700 pounds of valuable matter in the ton, the rest being useless water. It is very wet swamp muck that contains more water than the manure, and muck that has been dug and drained for two months will not contain so much so that the comparative values of the muck and manure depend upon the rel ative value of the ash and organic mat ter contained in them. The organic matter of muck is sur prisingly rich in nitrogen. Professor Johnson has found as much as 4.06 per cent, of potential ammonia in dry peat, and the average amount found in thir ty-three samples was 2.07 per cent. It is unusually rich manure that contains one per cent, of ammonia, and the average is no more than half of one per cent., or ten pounds to the ton. By potential ammonia is meant ammonia in an inert condition, or that which will be evolved in the course of perfect decomposition, and the reduction of organic matter to its mineral or inor ganic elements. If the ammonia were in a free state, it would be evaporated in a very short time, so that the actual value of a manure consists in its pos session of potential ammonia, and not so much in the free ammonia contained. The abundance of ammonia contained in a good sample of peat may be easily proved by mixing it with lime, when the powerful odor that will be apparent will speak for itself. The writer has had large quantities of muck dug out from a swamp, from which the pungent odor of ammonia was so strong as to inconvenience thd workmen, and was much more power ful than that of a very foul horse stable. This being the case, then, it may be taken as a fact that, so far as the inorganic elements are concerned, muck is worth at least as much as the best stable-manure, and as regards ammonia, it is worth twice to four times as much. No farmer, therefore, who owns a deposit of swamp muck can afford to neglect this generous pro vision of nature for his benefit, for, estimated at the money value of am monia, a single load is worth to him, for the ammonia, alone, at least ten dollars. This may surprise the farmer who has many acres on his farm, each of which contains 2,000 loads or more of muck above water level, and who, therefore, may hardly be able to realize that the actual value of each acre to him is $20,000. But if each ton of muck contains forty pounds of ammonia, that is worth twenty-five cents per pound in the market, and if he should buy guano, nitrate of soda, or any other ammoniacal manure he uld pay that price for each pound of ammonia in the fertilizer. The fact cannot be changed, simply because, in the one case he buys the ammonia, and in the other he already owns it. It is surprising, but it is true, and it is im portant tnat farmers should know, that mines of wealth are hidden beneath the coarse weeds and unsightly bogs and marsh which disfigure their farms and how much value they can extract from them by merely cutting sufficient ditches through them to free them from water and make them fit for cultiva tion. Just now is a favorable season for working in the swamps. The ground is aryer than at other times, other work is not pressing, and the interval between the present time and the winter is sufficient to drain the muck and free it from the greater part of its water. water into the ditch. After this ditch is finished others may be dug from it to intersect any low places that are softer or wetter than others, or to cut springs, or in case there is no especial need for any particular direction for the drains, they may be laid out at right angles with the main drain, and at distances of from sixty to one hun dred feet apart. A drain three feet deep and six feet Wide will yield more than a ton to the running yard, and 100 loads can be procured from 100 yards of ditch. The muck can be dug by contract at fifteen to twenty cents a yard, or less if it is free from water and not filled with roots. A cubic yard of fresh muck free from sand weighs about 1,600 pounds, and two yards will weigh a ton after having been dried for two months, but two yards will have shrunk to two-thirds or one-half that bulk during the drying. Muck may be used for bedding, for which purpose it is cool and very ab sorbent. The manure thus made is fine, and mr.y be spread with the har row. During the fermentation with the droppings of the cattle it is decom posed, and adds an equal value, at least, to the manure. It may be used very liberally, so as to absorb perfect ly all the liquids from the animals, and in doing this it will effect a most val uable service. After one year's con stant use of it we are enabled to speak positively as to the convenience of this substance and its great economy as a means of saving liquid manure. It may be thrown into the yards to form a substratum for the accumula tion of manure during the winter, and into manure-cellars as a disinfectant and absorbent of disagreeable odors. As the manure accumulates, it may be drawn out and spread upon the fields during the winter with advantage. In addition, it may be composted with refuse lime or wood-ashes with great advantage, in which condition it will be of great service as a top-dressing for meadows and pastures. The coarse fibrous portions and the sods and tus socks from the surface may be thus disposed of. Fortunately, there is scarcely a farm which has not more or less of peat upon it, or that is not so situated that the owner could procure a supply for the digging of it or mak ing the drains for his less enterprising neighbor.—.Nl ¥. Times. Tomatoes as Food. TO*ATOE» contain neither cancer nor cancer-producing matter. Can cers are composed of animal matter, not vegetable, and therefore cannot be directly derived from the vegetable kingdom. Tomatoes are not without some defects as an article of food. They are not, like milk, a perfect diet of themselves, and beside, like most other articles of food, they contain some obnoxious qualities. But they need not be thrown aside on that account. Nature has provided us with such ex cretory organs that obnoxious matter in our food, if in moderate amount, is readily cast out, and the body is pro tected against any material injury. Were it not so, we should be obliged to throw out of our dietary many kinds of food now eaten, not only with im punity but with advantage. Thus, red cabbage, cherries and peaches contain Prussic acid, which is a deadly poison when taken in sufficient quantity. The very small amount of the poisoning acid these vegetables contain is cast out of the system without any material injury to the person using them. A positive good may actually be derived from the use of food containing some such foreign matter by way of giving increased activity and strength to the excretory organs from their ex ercise in casting such foreign matter from our bodies, provided the quan tity is not so great as to overburden them. Since we are all the time liable to take in our food substances, the tendency of which is harmful, a good development of efficiency in our ex cretory organs is necessary to protect us against the pernicious effects which might otherwise occur. Almost every kind of grain and fruit in use contains more or less of things, which, if in larger amount, would prove hurtful. Unless we closely study our food, we are taking them in when we little sus pect it. A Frenchman, not many years ago, discovered a substance in wheat bran, which, under the high heat used in baking, dissolved otit and spread over the crumbs of bread, of which bran forms a part, and discol ored it, and hence the brown stain pe culiar to Graham bread. But from this discovery such bread has not been rejected, but continues to be accounted among the most wholesome kinds of food. Rye is seldom used without containing more or less ergot, but rye bread Is also reckoned among the most healthfuL Tea contains tannic acid, apples contain malic acid, lemons and oranges citric acid, neither of which is used either in nutrition or respiration, but thqy only become objectionable when used excessively. Tomatoes, in common with most other fruits, contain some poisonous matter. They, and the egg-plant, Je rusalem cherry, bitter sweet, deadly nightshade, and the common potato plant, all belong to the same genus— solanum—the fruit of every species of which is more or less poisonous, but none of them very mtlch so. The fruit of the deadly nightshade and of the po tato (potato balls) are probably the most poisonous. But even these are not very hurtful. The smaller amount contained in tomatoes allows of their being classed with the esculent fruits, but there is neverless enough to give them a peculiar flavor not apt to be relished by unaccustomed palates, but which use soon renders agreeable. Used very largely, tomatoes would doubtless develop specific results pecul iar to the fruit of the genus to which they belong, especially with feeble per sons and those who, from their pecul iar constitutions, are susceptible to such influences. But .when moderately uwU \*j jjui 0vu9 in fair bealiuy tiici V lw no more reason for rejecting them than there would be in rejecting lettuce for the opium it contains. Pie-plant stands in similar relations. Its prominent characteristic and flavor are the result of oxalic acid, which is a powerful poison. For persons not having sufficient vigor to dispose of such a strong acid, and for those in whose systems there is already an ex cess of acid, such highly acid food would be objectionable. But its mod erate use by people in common health is no more objectionable than any oth er acids in daily use, and regarded as healthful.—L, une. —The fact is well known that when gas was first made for illuminating pur poses, some of the substances produced by the distillation of coal and the puri fying of the gas were considered un mitigated nuisances.
