The mellow thrush, with speckled breast and glossy soft brown wing; The perfume of the violets is wafted on the breeze The cawing rooks their wicker nests fix on the old elm trees. Sing on, O minstrel stout and true, O minstrel brave and bold ! The early dawn is chilled with dew, the eve is keen and cold— But what of that? The time of love and blossoms is at hand; Make thou thy sweet voice, birdie, heard o'er all the greening land. Not yet are white with flower-snow the boughs of yonder pear. Not yet the orchard apple shows her petals pink and i air; the trees, save buddings here and there, bare to look upon; Yet still sing on, O minstrel sweet, O minstrel bold, sing on I Thus ever in adversity, when darkest shows the night. Upon the edge of somber clouds will gleam a starlet bright; And thus to fainting hearts a word of love doth comfort bring. As thou sing’st on through storm and cloud, brave minstrel of the spring! SA ItA’S SUA ML. Jonas Pray was bom stingy; lie liid his sweetmeats from liis little brothers when he was a child, and smoked his cigars alone when he was a young man. By the time he was 40, Jonas Pray was a very x-ieh man, though he lived as plainly as ever, and somehow about that age the first tender feelings lie had ever known crept into his heart. He fell in love with a buxom, good-tempered young woman named Sara Woolwich, and of fered himself to her. He was not an ill looking man, and when he chose could make himself agreeable. Sara liked him and accepted him. Jonas meant to be liberal to her at first, but after a brief honeymoon happi ness his old habits resumed their way, and, at last, the second winter of their married life coming on, Sara found that all her remarks about her shabby sum mer hat had no effect whatever, and that she might wait a long while without hav ing such a tiling as a comfortable cloak suggested to her. She had been a poor girl, and had no trousseau to speak of, and she found it necessary to put her pride in her pocket and ask for what she needed. It is hard enough for a wife to do that, but to be refused was something she had not calculated on. She knew her husband had a large bank account—that there was no reason she should not dress as well as any lady in the land. But when she hail said, playfully, “Jonas, shall I buy myself some winter things to-day ? I need a shawl dreadfully,” he had answered, “I thought you were too sensible a woman to run after the fashions, Sara? I’m sure you have very decent things that you might wear a long while yet.” “That shows how much men know,” Sara answered, determined to be pleas ant and not to show that she was hurt. “You would not like your wife to look shabby, Jonas?” “Well, no,” said Jonas! “no; but, really, Sara, money is so scarce just now. Don’t you think you might make what you have do a little longer !” “How much longer?” she asked, quietly. “ Oh, I don’t know,” said Jonas. “ I had an aunt who left me something when she died, who wore the same shawl and bonnet sixteen years, and boasted of it, too !” His wife looked at him and said noth ing. “Economy is a great thing, Sara,” said Jonas, uneasily. “It would be dreadful to die in the poor-house, you know ; and you don't care for other people’s admiration, do you, Sara, when know your Jonas .likes you as well in your well-saved clothes ! We won’t call them ‘ shabby,’ Sara, only well saved.” “Call thorn what you please, Jonas,’’ said Sara. “ They merit both epithets.” She sat quietly, with her hands folded on the table before her for a while. Her temper was rising fast, but she had sense enough to crush it down. A miser is the victim of a vice that masters him—just as a drunkard is. Jonas was ashamed of himself cveu as he spoke, and she knew it. As she looked at him a little while grief came instead of anger. 'There was so much that was good about Jonas. It was ter rible to see this canker creeping over it all; to see the pinched lines about his i month, the strange, anxious look in his ' eyes. Poor Sara remembered stories she had read of misers; how they starved themselves while they counted their gold; how some of them died in the dark to save caudles, and how, through a long illness, one of the wealthiest of these men refused to have a pillow bought for him, or oven a little saucepan in which 1 to heat his porridge. Would Jouas grow to be as bad as these ? How could she tell ? Ouee or twice of late he had found fault with the amount of butter used, mill moaned over his butcher's bilk But m n generally did something of that sort, she had heard; and men knew nothing about dress. She arose softly and went I out of the room, au 1 brought back her bonnet and shawl and put them on the table before him. “ Jouas, dear,” she said, “I don't want you tc flunk me unreasonable; look at these, see how shabby they are. They were nice when wo were married, but they were cheap, very cheap—cheap things fade se>. I have made everything I hail do for two years. I did not like to ask. I have not spent one penuy of your money for clothes. Yen know you gave two pairs of gloves in our horn y : moon—l have them still.” I “What a good, careful girl,” said Jonas, caressing her dark hair, as she came and sat on a low stool beside him. “ Yes, I have been careful. It is my nature to be careful,” said Sara. “ Few rich men’s wives would have done so much. Now look at these things, my dear.” Jonas looked. There came a time afterward when it seemed to him that the faded tint of that shawl, its dingy palm leaves of yellow brown, and the wilted flowers and shabby ribbon of the bonnet had been seared into his brain. He looked at them long and lingeringly. He knew his wife was reasonable, and that he things were, and long had been, unfit for her to wear. But his money tugged at his heart-strings. ‘ ‘ Suppose you wear them one winter more, Sara,” he said. “Just one.” “The shawl is very thin,” she said. “ I shall catch cold again as I did last winter. ” “Poor girl!” he said, softly, and looked toward the desk where his check book lay. But the grip of the fiend that rules a miser’s soul nipped him sorely as he did so. The momentary impulse vanished. Besid thought occurred to him. “They wear sacques a good deal, Sara, don’t they ?” he said. “Oh! they are very fashionable,” re plied Iris wife. “ Then couldn’t you make one of that old billiard-cloth that is in the trunk room ?” he said. “My poor mother bought it at an auction. She meant to use it for a coverlet; but it’s a very pretty green, don’t you think, Sara, and such nice material ?” There is a limit to woman’s patience ; this suggestion measured Sara’s. She started to her feet, and, gathering up her bonnet and shawl, Avalked out of the room. After she had gone Jonas really looked at his check-book, and, for at least two minutes, contemplated drawing a large check, and telling his wife he had been teasing her. But he could not bring himself to do it. After a while his wife looked into the room with her old bonnet on, and her old shawl about her shoulders, and said ; “ Jonas, I’m going to spend the day with my sister-in-law, but I shall be home before dinner-time.” “ I hope you’ll enjoy yourself, my dear,” said Jonas. He saw her eyes were heavy with weeping, and looked away, ashamed of himself. Then he betook himself to his office, where he ground out his money, and, during the day, compromised with him self. He would do no extravagant thing, but when he went home he would give his wife what was necessary. And, after all, as he said to himself, it would have been better to have done it. He had grieved her, and she was the only thing he loved on earth. He went home earlier than usual that evening to make what amends his soul would consent to, and as he walked briskly along, being light upon his feet yet—for who ever heard of a miser grow ing fat?—he thought that he never again would bring tears to those good, kind eyes. Never, never again, never again ; and then—what was that crowd ? What had happened ? People were coming his way, looking backward as they came. Men, boys, women, little children, all the riff-raff that accident, or quarrel, or an arrest will collect in the streets of New York; and now he was in the midst of the throng and close to four policemen, who, with set faces, marched in time, bearing between them a stretcher, on which lay a human form. It was covered—covered with a shawl. Jonas looked. Oh, heaven! he knew the pattern of that shawl. Only a few hours before its dingy palm leaves of yellow brown, its faded fringe, its shabby brown center, had been spread before him. It was his wife’s shawl. “Stop—stop—stop!” he cried. “ Lei me sec her—let me see her !” “Do you know her?” asked the policeman. “Bet me see her face,” said Jonas, growing so faint that a kindly man hard by supported him by the arm. “You’d not know her face ; a tele graph pole fell on her ; it's crushed out of all shape,” said the policeman. “But shawls are alike. Keep up your cour age. I don't think this any relation of yours ; she’s too shabby. Book at her shoes. See here, this is her bonnet. You don’t know that ?” He held up a bonnet. It was crushed and soaked witli blood ; but Jonas knew it. The streaked purple ribbon, and a flower amongst the other flowers that had lost half its petals. He had fingered it as it lay on the table beside him. “Yes, I know it!” he cried. “It’s Sara ! It’s my wife !” Then he pulled away the shawl from the crushed face, and fainted outright. Just as his senses loft him he heard someone say : “ His wife! why, I thought she was a beggar !” And another answered : “ Bike enough ; they call him a miser. I know him. His name is Jonas Pray.” They carried the poor woman home to Jonas Fr iy’s old house, helping him to follow as he came to himself. She was laid upon her bed, and there was a Cor oner’s inquest, and women prepared her body for burial, talking among them selves of the shame it was, she, a rich man’s wife, should be so clad ; and then there was a pause, and he might lie alone with her if he would. Before the time come ho had a cab called, and wont out in it. He was driven to a large dry-goods establish ment, where he asked to see the man ager, and was shown to his office. The m .nagt r found him there, a pale, 1 miserable object, trembling and front, as MANITOWOC, WISCONSIN, THURSDAY, APRIL 26, 1877. one in a deep illness. He was shabby, too. “ He has come to bog,” thought the manager; and his, “What can Ido for you ?” was curt. But Jonas cared nothing for any one’s manner now. He answered, sadly, “I want to buy a shawl.” “A salesman will attend to you, sir,” said the manager. “ No,” said Jonas ; “ I am too ill, too broken to talk to the salesman. I can trust you. I want the costliest shawl you have.” “A madman !’* thought the manager. “ Our costliest is $5,000,” said he, re pressing a smile. “ Have it put up for me,” said Jouas. “ Certainly mad !” said the gentleman to himself. But Jonas had drawn a check from his breast, and with trembling hand was tilling up the blanks. The manager examined them care fully. “Mr. Jonas Pray,” he said, more re spectfully. Then it flashed upon him that lie had read of a fatal accident to this man’s wife that morning. It vas a strange proceeding altogether. Secret ly be called others to look at his cus tomer. One knew him —financially it was all right. ‘ ‘ And the rest is none of our business, ” said the manager, as he saw the bundle of splendor carried down stairs after Jouas Pray. “ They spoke of him as a miser in the paper. That’s a pretty pur chase for a miser.” Meanwhile, Jouas drove home. From the door floated long streamers of black crape. No sweet face smiled a greeting. Within all was hushed. Carrying the shawl under his arm, he went up stairs to the darkened room, where, Under straight folds of white drapery, seemed to lay the sorrow of the house. A watcher sat there. He sent her away. Then, aloue iu the room, he knelt down upon the floor beside the coffin. “ Sara,” he said—“ Sara, can you hear me ?—I loved you, Sara; but I was such a miser—such a miser ! I’Ve bought you a shawl at last. Oh, Sara ! Sara ! I’ve paid as much as I could for it, my dear. You shall be wrapped in it in your coffin, but at that instant a voice cried! “Oh, Jouas! Jonas, dear! Oh, my poor Jonas ! My poor, poor Jonas!” And turning, he saw his wife, either iu the spirit or the flesh, standing behind him. His knees trembled under him. He cried out to Heaven to protect him; but the figure came closer. It was no ghost, but a living woman. She took him in her arms. “ Oh, how ill you look,” she said. “ Did you really love me so ? And it is all my fault. I went to my sister-in law’s, and there iu a pet—oh ! I was so angry, Jouas—l gave away my dross, my shawl and my bonnet to a beggar woman—and vowed to sit in one of sis ter’s dressing-gowns until you gave me decent clothes to come home in. And the poor woman—who was tipsy, too, my dear—was killed two hours afterward, and I never knew that she had been taken for me until this morning. Oh ! such a dirty creature, my dear, the papers de scribed her ! And for a little I was glad that you had had a fright, but I'm sorry now I was.” For all answer he picked up the costly shawl and wrapped it about her, and took her, folded in it like a mummy, to his heart again. “ The miser is dead,” he said. “But Jonas Fray will show his wife how he can cherish her.” He did; and if ever afterward Sara detected symptoms of a relapse all she had to do was to wrap herself iu her wonderful shawl. The sight of it inev itably recalled the moment when he learned how little after all is the value of money, and realized iu agony of soul that ‘ ‘ should a man give all the sub stance of his house for love it would be utterly contemned.” He may, in deed, love liis money yet; but he knows that he loves Sara more. o.ve or jtowiE>s duels. At the appointed hour all parties were on the ground, Bowie, as usual, very cool, the Spaniard very furious and ex cited. The Spaniard’s second won the choice of position, which gave the second of Bowie the word. They were to stand back to back, rifles perpendicular, up ward or downward —to wheel, at the word. Here arose an instance of genius over routine. Iu the army the maneu vers are intended for regularity before time; but, iu such cases as this, regu larity was of no moment, but time was everything. When the Spaniard heard the word to “ wheel,” he, of course, exe cuted it iu true military style, in “three motions,” but Bowie—whose whole life had been spent in depending upon him self, not regulating his movements by those of others, who had been compelled, in his warfare against Indians or in pro curing game, to take every position, ix ecuted every change of body necessary for the occasion to insure success—iu steael of wheeling, as the Spaniard was doing, simply turned the body from the hips, or on the hips, holding the feet firm, which, of com-se, brought him around quicker than his antagonist, and enabled Bowie to lire lust, and to drive his ball through the brain of his antago nist, This Bowie said anybody conhl do if they only possessed the requisite qual ity—nerve.— Wilkes' Sjiirit of the i Times.

FARM AND HOME. fVr rtn JSa A* in <js . Frequent washing with cold water is good for galled shoulders on horses. Paul wheat and rye can be profitably harrow ,1 as soon as the ground is dry enough. Some meadows can be greatly im proved by harrowing and rolling. It must be done early. Soft soap, diluted sufficiently to work well with a brush, is said to be the best wash for fruit trees. It is far better to have the corn frost bitten in the spring than the fall. It always gets over spring chilblains. Start with the season, and keep abreast with it in all departments of the farm. Then yonr work will not drive you. The first ten days of May is soon enough to plant corn. But have the ground, seed and implements ready. Clean out your cellars. One rotting potato in a cellar below a bed-room is more injurious to health than a thousand polecats. April ought to have sixty days in it instead of thirty, there is so much to do. But what it lacks in days must be made up in vigilance. Dairymen would do a good thing for the country if they would make neither cheese nor butter in April, but give all the milk to the calves Until grass. In setting trees avoid one almost uni versal mistake, that of setting too close. Trees upon a lawn arc beautiful alone wh,en they have abundant room to grow 7 in natural proportions. Do not suppose that calves and colts which are lousy will be all right as soon as it i warm. Warm weather only adds life and Vitality to such parasites, and they annoy and injure animals. Use oil or grease of any kind freely. Manure in the. Orchard. —The barn yards are being cleaned of their rich contents about these days. Do not give it all to the corn-field, but give a little to the orchard. It will bring a rich re ward. If but a few trees Can be helped in this way it is better to make a begin ning. If an orchard is worth having it is worth care, and no field on the farm will reward So richly for labor expended and food given. Work on the Lawn.— The roller, as the frost leaves the ground, should be put over the lawn to crush down the hillocks and smooth the surface. After this is done it Will be seen that there are many inequalities that require leveling up. A little good earth put in the hol lows and smoothed down will be the easiest and best process of mending. The grass will soon spring up through it and cord it with a continuous sod. A thin scattering of good composted ma nure on the lawn will give the grass a quick start, and, although unsightly at first, is soon incorporated with the soil and lost underneath the green carpet. Horses Pulling at the Halter.—A horse can pull more backward by a strap over the top of his head than he can pull forward by the breast, and when he has learned this he will break almost any single strap of leather; but this is not the -worst of it, there is great danger of his injuring himself as -well as doing in jury to the harness or carriage when loose. There is much less danger of in jury by using him with a strap around the neck when he cannot and will not exert as much force. A handy way with a carriage horse is to have a strong two inch strap with a strong buckle fastened to an iron ring. This can remain on the horse’s neck, then have in your buggy a new strong rope with a large knot on one end that will not pass through the ring. Draw this through the ring when you tie him and he will try the strength of it but a few times. Number of Sheep to the Acre for Pasturage.— lf only sheep are to be pas tured, and calculating one season with another, eight sheep to the acre will be found an average. A pasture can carry a cow or horse to each acre, and five or six sliccp, and after better pasturage for both, than if only one kind is pastured in the land. This is really seen by a little observation in summer. The cow and the horse will pass by the little patches of weeds and briars, and each will grow where they are pastured. M nothing troul >les the W'ecds and briars, soon half the grass will be so shaded that it is of little use as food. But the sheep trims up all nuisances in the pas ture, giving the grasses the sunlight and a much greater growth. The droppings of cattle on grass cut down the grass as effectually as if a sod of the same size was taken. The droppings of the sheep take effect from the time the first dew or rain touches it, and give vigor to the grass around. JJoniefttic Economy. Insects.—Alcohol is a never-failing poison to all insects, but is rendered still more efficacious by the addition of a lit tle gum camphor. •Johnny-Cake.—Three cups sour milk, three cups Indian meal, three table spoonfuls molasses, one egg, ■with a lit tle flour, salt and saleratns. In cooking asparagus the stalks should be cut to the s imo length and placed ver tically in bundles in boiling, leaving an inch ot the tops out of water. Crr Cake.—Four eggs, two cups of sugar, one of butter, one-half cup of sweet milk, three of flour, one and a half teaspoonfuls of yeast powder. To Clean Silver.—Whiting applied with a soft flannel and polished off with a chamois skin, is the simplest and liest possible manner of keeping silver bright and clean. Fish Sauce.—Boil two onions and three anchovies in a pint and a half of water till quite soft; then thicken with flour and butter and add two glasses of wine, claret or port. Soft Gingerbread. —One pint molas ses, one cup butter, half cup milk, two eggs, one teaspoonful cream tartar, two teaspooufuls soda, one teasjioouful gin ger, four cups flour. Useful Liniment. —One of the best liniments for lameness, rheumatism, sprains, etc., is made of three ounces of sulphuric ether, one ounce alcohol, half ounce oil lavender, two drachms lau danum. Paint. —For durable and cheap paint for house floors, dissolve one ounce of glue in a quart of Warm water, thicken it with paint. After being put on, go over with a coat of boiled linseed oil. It will dry in ready for use in two hours. Mush. —Stir corn meal, mixed to a paste with cold water and salted, into a pot of boiling water; add more meal if not thick enough ; boil an hour, stirring frequently to prevent luiitpiuess ; serve hot and eat with cold milk. Nectar.— Squeeze the juice from three oranges and as many lemons into a pitcher, add two tumblers of water, and sweeten to taste. Then put iu plenty of pounded ice, half a ten-spoonful of rose water and a large tumbler of wine (sher ry or Madeira). Stir all well and pom out. A WeLsH Ear Edit for Four.— One pound of soft, American cheese cut in small pieces. Stir in a sauce-pan over a Strong fire or alcohol lamp; add a lump of butter, and a dash of pepper; the cheese to be stirred until entirely free from lumps, and in a liquid state. Then serve hot on dry toast. Strawberry Griddle Cake.— Beat well together one cup well-cooked oat meal porridge, one cup of water, and one of Graham flour; bake this in griddle cakes, slightly brown on both sides, and pile them up with berries between them, and sugar if desired. Cover warm until all are baked, and then serve. Strawberry Muffins. —To one cup of boiled rice add one and a quarter cups oatmeal milk, strained from well cooked oatmeal gruel, and one cup “B” oat meal; mix intimately, and bake in well oiled muffin rings; split them, spread the berries between, replace the top, and serve at once.— Daisy EycbrigM. The best way to boil eggs is not to boil ’em at all. Put them iu a tin dish and pour on boiling water; cover the dish tight and set back where the water ■will merely keep hot; let it stand from ten to fifteen minutes, according to the size of the eggs, or the preference of the eaters for “hard” or “soft.” The ef fect is quite different from that produced by boiling, both the flavor and texture of the egg being so superior to any other way of cooking by means of hot water that those who have tried it will hardly be likely to return to the old way. Eights of marriei > tromex. Until within comparatively a late pe riod the rights of married women to hold property apart from thoir husbands were few. Circuitous legal processes were employed to protect their estates from profligate husbands or from those hus bands’ creditors. During the past decade or two much has been done to throw ad ditional safeguards round the estates of wives. In nearly all the States of the Union laws have been passed which more or loss perfectly enable the wife to hold property or carry on business for herself. In conservative England an advance has been made in the same direction, but not to the same length. Wives have there been robbed of their earnings by worthless husbands, and the law has in terposed no barrier. Creditors have stripped women of all they had, that they might get paid for debts for which the husband alone was responsible. A better day has dawned, however, and it is refreshing to hear of a recent decision of the Vice Chancellor. Mrs. Antram, before her marriage, had made money by canning fruit. Her husband died without making a will, aud, on account of his intestacy, his relatives laid claim to what his wife had brought him, as well as to his owu property. The court very equitably held that neither the hus banct nor his heirs had any right to the woman’s property. .1 CHILIAN HOLOCACST. The greatest loss of life from Arc in a public building during the present cent ury was in a church at Santiago, Chili, Dec. 8, 1862. It was in the evening, and the building was crowded by more than 3,000 persons. The church was festooned with gauze drapery, and illuminated by thousands of lights. Suddenly a trans parency on the altar caught fire, and the whole interior instantly became a mass of flames. The church had but one door that could be reached by the panic stricken multitude, and that opened to the inside. It was horrible. In less than fifteen minutes about 2,000 persons, mostly women and children, perished. The Legislature of Chili, after this dis aster, passed mi act prohibiting illumina tions of churches, and requiring a sufli [ cient number of doors of egress in every public building to secure the speedy | safety of an audience.

EGOS AT EASTER. The custom of eating eggs at Easter has been traced up not only to the the-, ology of Egypt, but to the philosophy of the Persians, the Gauls, the Greeks and the Romans, all of whom regarded the egg as an emblem of the universe and the work of Deity. “Easter,” says i Gobelin, “ and New Years have been 1 marked by similar distinctions. Among ! the Romans the New Year is looked upon ! as the renewal of all things, and is noted j for the triumph of the sun of nature, as ; East- r is with the Christians for the Sou ■ of Justice, the Savior of the world, over 5 death, by His resumption.” The early Christians of Mesopotamia had the cus tom of dyeing and decorating eggs at Easter. They were stained red in mem | ory of the blood of Christ shed at His crucifixion. The Romish church adopt ’ ed the custom, and regarded the eggs as ' the emblem of the resurrection, as is evidenced by the benediction of Pope Paul V., about 1610, which read thus: “Bless, O Lord ! wo beseech thee, this Thy creature of eggs, that it may become li wholesome sustenance to Thy faithful servants, eating it in thankfulness to Thee on account of the resurrection _f the Lord. ” Thus the custom has come ■ down from ages lost in antiquity.
