Miss Betty Van Dyke had curled Iters pelf 1 1 1 in the corner of t lie spaciou-wimlow-sill in hor mother' kitehen to watch Fifine flute the flounces of her India muslin. Miss Hetty va as pretu ami fresh as a rose-, her eyes were of heaven's own blue, hor hair like threads of gold, her cheeks " like sj !al herine jiear, the side that's next the sun.'' r iline was jiothino; more; th:tn a bundle of old hones wrapped in a piece of parch ment; she was a native of Lorraine and had lately married an Englishman fa miliarly known as "(ioore." whom she had Imed lor many a year. Nliss Betty was romantic, and it so de-lio-hted her when Georaa at last yielded to the idolatry of poor Fifine that she coaxed her father Into leasing a hit of scrnbby woodland, with a tumble-down ; house upon it, to fieorge, so that he j eovild have a yanlun and potato patch j and raise some ehiekens and take nice 1 care of poor Fifine. Miss Hetty even corniest ended to go to tln ni during the ; Jiouse tinisliin and the honey mo u and j ainist I'itine in her little domestic fur nishinir ami adorningand advise (jeorjre in relation to his garden, his potato ab h, his chickens and wood-splitting. .flul, truth to say, (ieorge had so fitudied t lie character and ai tributes of the noble Indian that he modeled his life upon it so far as resigning all do mestic duties to poor Kiline. lie; gsre over to his spouse the entire supervision of the garden, potato patch, chioksn nuntig and even the wood-splitting. lie was of a dreamy nature and would sit for hours on a rude bench he had placed near the water, and there ho would smoke and meditate until Kiline had tidied up the house and fed the chickens and hoed the potatoes ami washed a couple of dozen pieces for one of her patrons, and split some wood and got dinner npnn the table, and then (.Gorge would eomc in and eat dinner with Fifine and tell her of nil he had been tltTnEih; about while sittiii there upon the bencn under the trees. Filine was vorv happy. She knew that George was superior to her in m nd, bat be had told her time and rtfraiii that it was right he should he her superior, and he loved her all the bet ter for it. But Miss Betty had her misgivings, and one day, w! en she was curled up like a lovely kitten upon the window sill, she said to litine: "What does (ieorge do, Filine, towards the support of the household? It seems to me that you are always slaving and toiling. What does George do?'1 Then Filine shrugged her shoulders, which had become somewhat crooked and bulgy from the heavy burdens they had borne all these years, and elevated her eyebrows, which were rather scrag gy and gray, and said, with a world of teeling in her voice: "What does he do, my angel :' He gives to me the happi ness which is my all; he gives to me the conversation which is beautiful;, he tells mo of what is roing on in the big, busy world; he pities, he consoles, ah, my lit tle one, he loves me!" Miss Hetty hiushed and was silent, ami thought, foolish Child, that after all this was everything. She left Filine to iron the tucks and furbelows with which Mrs. Van Dyke delighted to adorn her daughter Hetty and went out under the grape-vine and walked to and fro and thought, that if somebody and here she trembled and blushed at the thought of, his name would read to her again, would ta k to her again, would tell her of the big, beautiful world once more; if ho would love her ah, what would she not be glad to give in return! She would work for him aye. she would work her slim lingers to the bone, only of course he wouldn't let her; he was too noble and generous and thoughtful. Kill if tl e necessity should arise, how glad she would be to do even like poor I' itine, if only he would love her in re turn! Hut, alas! the superiority of mankind was here also pre eminent He was the new minister, the Kev. Kcg'nald Koake. The consistory had tho- ght it best to get a voting man, so that he could board around among the parishioners and thus save the rant of a parsonage. Captain Van Dyke. Miss Hetty's father, had thought it best to economize in cverv way that they could and had even taken the young man to board at hrst. lie told his wife they'd scarcely miss what the parson ate and the church must be helped along as much as was prudent and possible. But the Captain, after a few months, suddenly changed his mind. The young minister was very fertile in imagination and epiick in thought ; and his sermons were speedily prepared, and the long summer days had so many sweet, rich hour to till! Missltetti's duties were also light; her niotb'f was still active and robust and there were two sturdy young women in the kitchen, besides the occasional artistic work of I'itine The Captain's sight was keen and strong; when he was out sailing in the bay he could see a couple of flgui bending over some book in t he summer house or wandering among the rocks or along the sands upon the shore. The Captain would come home hot and vexed, and take his wife to task fortius misdoing. "I don't want any beggarly parsons hanging around tin daughter,1' said the aptain. The good lady would look very much shocked and really tremble in her heart at the Capta nS temerity. for she thought it was almost tempting Provi dence to cast a cont mptuous word upon the clergy, hut she had that whole some fear of the Captain that .-he never ventured to remonstrate w th him. she sighed in secret with her daughter when the Captain mansged to transfer the preacher to the care of a wealthy and comely widow iu the. neighborhood. ' He can poach all he pleases on that domain," said the Captain. And short ly afterwards he was delighted to seo the reverend gentleman riding out with the fnir widow ami ga'hering grasses ami ferns in the pu tty woodland haunts about (iranville. "We can't keep a parson single,"' chuckled the Captain at his dinner-table; "the women Won't let h;m alone, what we may. Hut the widow Ben son owns her own house, and that will save rent for a parsonage." The morsel upon Miss Betty's fork j remained untasted, and the Captain in this way spoiled many a meal for his daughter. And so the summer waned, and Sep tember was at hand September with her soft blue haze and rich warm sun shine; and though the widow had a brilliant garden of her own she was fond of the wanton wild flowers that grew so luxuriously in the woods of ' Granville. She and the y ung minister filled the bouse with great clusters of golden-rods aud asters and big purple poke berries. One day the pony phae ton stopped before the door of ( a tain N an l)ke and the widow was led into the s'.tt ng room, where she found Miss Hetty almost hidden by a mosquito net ting which she was busily patching. "Come, child." said the widow,! " put away that rag and run and get a pretty dress on. 1 ve promised myself this many a day we should take this drive together, and I declare to you it shall be the rarest one you ever had in your life. The day is made richly to order for it: the balmiest air. the gold enest sunshine not a cloud in the sky! Bun away aud make yourself look as pretty as you can." "Yon are very kind," said Miss Bet- I ty, with a little trip of cold jealousy on her tongue, "but 1 must mend this net ting for poor Fifine. Sim is sick with a fever, and tin; mosquitoes are dreadful down there in the wood. Mamma savs I may have this netting if I can make it do, it is so badly torn," said poor Betty, " antl .'O perplexing! But I could not sleep, Mrs. 1 euson," she added, with an air of gentle dignity, in which there was also a slight sniff of reproach ' I could not sleep in ray own bed of luxury and know that poor Filine was languishing there a prey to fever and mosquitoes." If the willow had thereupon offered to drive to town with Miss I'etty and buy for l itine a brand-new canopy Miss Hetty would have put the old netting a ide: but she was at heart very glad that the line lady ollered no such sacri fice to charity, for she could not bear to find her altogether jierfect. "Ten chances to one, mv dear," said the widow, "you'll have your labor for your pains. These poor creatures are very superstitious and queer, and don t know what is best for them. I've no donb'.in any case, she has pretended to be sick to get rid of some clear-starching for your good mother. Filine would rather work at home, so that she can le with that lubberly lout of a hus band of hers. She is the linest and best of laundress es, and sorry should I be to have anything befall her; but you must not believe all t';eso wily French women say." The color mantled high in Miss Het ty's cheeks as these slanders fell upou her ears, ami she steadily refused1 to put her work aside. "Ton are a little goose," said the widow at length. " Must I tell you, then, that we shall have some charming company with us? We are to stop at my house for Mr. Roako there, now. Miss Betty, run away aud dress." The color lied from Miss Betty's cheeks and the needle trembled in her lingers. As she raised her blue eyes to the line, black ones of the widow a tear or two trembled within them. " You are wel ome to your charming company," she said. "1 will go on with my work for my poor Fifiue. The widow laughed lightly ami went away, leaving poor Miss Betty to struggle on with her troublesome task, which was more and more irksome now that she knew how some other people, were spend ng their after noon. As rent after rent yawned be fore her, and her wejiry little lingers grew less and less nimble, more than once the question arose within her whether it was better to go on. Since nobody oared for, why should she care for anybody? But her generous heart conquered all these bitter temptations, and nearly at night-fall she ran up stairs to slip on the pretty muslin Tobe. all smoothed and crimped by the art and industry of poor Fifine. The net ting was not a very heavy burden, but she carried also a kettle of ice with her and a pot of jelly. She took the road through the woods, and though it w as growing darker and her heart beat rapidly and she could not brush the mosquitoes away because her hands were so full, yet she was upheld by the thought of rescuing poor Filine. Since she could not save her from the stings of slander and reproach she should at least be free from those of mosquitoes. At last through the trees she could see the chicken-coops of litine, and soon she was at the poor woman's bedside. The heart of Miss Betty was tired w ith indignatioa when she remembered the cruel words of the widow. Filine lay upon a rude bed in the corner. Always thin and brown, she might now have been taken for an exhumed Queen of Egypt, and Mi-s I'etty could not imag ine how all these mosquitoes could (ind it in their anatomy to prey upon poor Fifine when the fat and unctuous sub stance of George was tempt ingly at hand upon the bench outside, where he w enjoying his evening pipe. Miss Betty stooped o er the sick woman and said softly: " I have brought you some ice, dear Filine." " Ah, my angel! ray angel of light'" said l itine, " thou hast of hearts the most merciful; but, alas. I cannot have the k o. 1 am too cold already, my little one. There is a cold hand at mv heart. No, no; I cannot have the ice." "Very well, Fifine," said Miss I'etty, putting down the kettle which hail been such a nuisance to her, "you shall not be troubled with the ice but here is some jelly." " Ah, my blessed one " cried Fitine, "thou ait like asa nt Irom Heaven; but. talk not to mi! of jelly. They have given nie of jellv many years ago, after some bitter medicine, and 1 have since that time no hunger for jelly. Ah, mv rose of the wildwood! It makes me sick to think f it." "Then do not think of it. Fifine," said Miss Hettv. tuittinir aside the jar that had grown heavier and heavier at every step of the journey. "But these d read ful mosquitoes, they are devouring v oil ' "Ah, yes, my adored one, they are demons without mercy; they have drawn all the blood from my body, and their dreadful song is madness to my brain. But rest tranquil; death will soon n t an end to my misery." But see here, m poor Fifine,' cried Miss Betty, eultingly unrolling her precious net; "now you can sleep in peace We will spread this over you, George and I. and not one of the mon sters can reach you. See, my poor Fi line. we will draw this over you- -so," and suiting the action to the word Miss Betty pulled the net over the high post of the bedstead. when suddenly a terri fied loo' upon the sick woman's face stayed her hands, and she cried out lo Filine in dismay: " Don't you wati', the net over you, Fifine " " Ah. life of my life!" said Fitine, "it is sad. it i terrible! I know not how to deny thee, after all thou hat done for me; but, oh. my little one, I can not have it over me. I have tried, for thy dear sake, to bear it, 1 told myself that I would say no wort! against it - at icast till thou were gone, when George could pull it away b it I can not even for one little moment. Ah. my angel, wait until I am dead, and then tlre.y can draw over me the pal , and put can dles at my head and feet, and do with me what ihey will; but while 1 am yet alive I can not be treated like a dead boil . " Miss Betty said no further words of entreaty or remonstram e. but let the miserable, flimsy thing fall out of her hands upon the t'oor; and having smoothed Filine' s pillow avd held some milk to her lips aud promised to come again in the morning. Miss Betty tcok the woodland road home again. It was now quite dark, and big shadows seemed to threaten every sicp of her way. Her heart was heavy with in her. and her poor little feet seemed scarcely able to carry even her light weight along. What a wretched abor tive attempt had been hers to a'leviate the misery of poor 1 il ne? It was as the beautiful widow had said, she had ha I her labor for her pains the beauti ful, mocking widow, who was no doubt rid.ng home through the gloaming with the Bev. Reginald Koake. At that ve y moment Miss Betty heard the tr mping of hoofs behind her, and stepped aside to let the light-1 mbed pony of the widow pass by. I he basket sides of the phaeton were filled with wild flowers, and the white hands of the minister held a bunch of shy, sweet forget-me-nots as blue as Miss Bet y'seyes. The wi low drew up her pony and bade Miss Betty get in by her side, lest the hobgoblins of the wood should de vour he ; but the young girl stoutly re fused, nor would she be coaxed from her. decision. "I am not afraid of hobgoblins," she said, thinking in her heart there could be none so greedv and rapacious as the beautiful widow herself. " Now what is to be done with this obstinate child?" said the widow. The minister had long since leaped from the wagon and approached Miss Betty: but she turned her back on him, perhaps to hide the tears of wretchedness which were falling out of her eyes. "Pick her up and put her in here 1 y me," said the widow. " I am myself a little afraid o the satyrs of the wood. Come, child; do not be a goose and get jealous of your grandmother. The gentleman there has gathered a pretty nosegay of forget-me-nots for von that were left o' er from spring. We have been looking for you far and wide, and he has done nothinir but talk to me of his love for you till I am sick of the re frain" Betty turned a swift, melting glance behind her. In a twinkling the minis ter had lifted her to the widow's side, and forgot to take his arm away. It was quite dark, and the only star that shone in the sky was that of Venus. They drove rapidly on. Miss Betty's heart thumping in unison with the hoof? of the pony. "1 told you," said the widow, "you'd have your la1 or for your pains. We stopped at Filine' s. The poor creature was full of adoration for you. She ca hyl upon every saint in the calendar to shower blessings upon your head. She said that yon had brought hersomo beautiful ice and delicious icily, an 1 a net thnt was most beautiful." "But she refused them all," said Miss Betty. "Ah. yes " replied the widow; "but (Ieorge did not refuse them. He had chopped up the ice in the milk and had spread al the jelly upon his bread and had wrapped himself up in the mosquito netting and laid upon the lounge as wo entered, snoring, as l itine. -aid, like an angel. Filine was parched with fever and devoured with mosquitoes, but she declared lo me that she was quite com fortable and nappy- I do not under stand t " But Miss Betty did. She nestled loser to the arm about her, and lifted her Hushed and rad ant face to the one above her own. "My sweet little Samaritan!" he whispered: and although the widow could not understand tiie happiness of Filine, it was clear to the heart of Miss Betty. Jhtrptr's eftfy. Pursued by a Blood-Hound. A Siberian blood hound belonging to Mr. C. 1. Sheppard, of this city, got loose at Larehmont on Monday night, and made a groat sensation for fifteen or twenty minutes. Mr. Sheppard, who is lessee of the club-house at Larehmont, keeps his dogs at that place. The blood hound is a savage, blood-thirsty beast, and possesses the strength of a lion. He was chained in a dog-house, but, becom ing restive under rest a nt, he tore the house down and pulled the stake up to which he was chained He immediate ly killed a game dog belonging to his master, and mangled its carcass in a shocking manner. He next went to ward the barn, in the vicinity of which were William II. Shute. a constable of New Bochelle, and James Fallon, a com panion. They were in a sleigh. They saw the animal coming, and they ran into the barn and climbed into a loft. The dog's attention was diverted from them to a passing cur, aud, whi'e he was indulging in the pastime of killing the unlucky beast, Shute and Fallon sprang into their sleigh and made spec 1 for New Koehelle. At a locality known as Jerusalem the blood-hound overtook the fleeing men, who were unarmed, and made a des perate attempt to get into the sleigh. The men fought him with a club and a w hip, and shook a buffalo-robe in his face to keep him out. He tore the robe almost into shreds and was in a fair way of coming off victorious when a ne'ghboring dog of an investigating turn ran into the road to ascertain what w as going on and take a hand in if nec essary, lie made a fatal mistake The, blood hound forWith turned his atten tion to him, aud in a brief space the snow was melting under the warm blood of this reckle.-s animal. The blood hound had just begun the task of mangling his victim's carcass when the owner of the deceased cur caeaa into view and tired six sho;s at long range from a revolver at the ferocious bea-t. None of them took effect. The man then procured from his dwelling a double-barreled shot gun, and just at the right time let fly from both barrels, which were loaded with buckshot, kill ing the blood-hound almost instantly. A. Y. UcraLd. Good Taste at Homo. It is wonderful what a tasteful wom an can do in tho way of making home attractive. She ean make a garret beautiful at little cost, for the beauty of home depends more upon an educa tion and refined taste than upon mere wealth. If there is no artist in -the house it matters little that there is no large 1 alame at the bank. There is usually no bet er excuse for a barren home than ignorance or care'essness. A little mechanical skill can make brackets and shelves for the walls. A trifle saved from daily expenses can now and then put a new book upon the table or shelf. A thoughtful walk in the woods can gather leaves and ferns for adorning the unpicturcd rooms. The expenditure of a few shillings can con vert the plain window into a laboratory. In these and many other ways can a plain, barren room be changed into a scene of beauty. Oodlcn ljuc.

The Season of leisure will be ended, and the u.-ual rush of spring and summer work wi 1 confront us. The time for special iab"r for the advancement of reforms in which we arc interested, and for the extensive and more systematic cultiva tion of the mind, will have passed for the time being. There is not an excel lent opportunity in the m'dst of farm work for the e things, and. therefore, the winter season should be improved to the fullest extent. The labor of the farmer in seeding, growing and har vesting, is a constant strain. That is to sa , it icquires his whole attention. Wo do not like the word strain in this con nection, for the farmer has no business to stra n or overtax himself. No man has any right to do more than he can do without overwork ng. Overwork moans i:ijur3'; it means a bent form and stiff limbs, when the former should bo upright and tho latter supple and while farming is not easy work, it is not nec essarily a killing work. There is not only no reason why the farmer should not be well preserved through a long life, but there is good reason why he should be. He enjoys the inestimable privilege of breathing the pure air of heaven day arter day: he can have the freshest and purest of food, and he has the delightful harmony and beauty of nature around him all the time. Nat urallv his surroundings are the most favorable for health, comfort antl long life. But he too often makes a stave of him-elf, labors beyond all reason, and pays in doctors bills what would be much more profitably invested in help. We do insist that the farmer should enjoy life. Of all men he is entitled to that enjoyment. And while -it may not be thought wise to act otherwise than upon the prin ciple that business conies before pleasure, we believe that one ob'ect of life is enjoyment, and that our labor itself should be so arranged as to make it enjoyable. Enjoyment ot life is condu -ive to the besfc interests of man. It makes h'm kinder in disposition; more charitable to the worl !; develops his spiritual nature: gnes him better digestion, anl makes him better and more faithful in all his relations. It is not unimportant, thererore, to study how best we can increase that en joyment; and we believe that it should be the rule of farm life to embrace the opportunities for recreation whenever they oiler. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and this is so absolute ly true that, the investment of money at fairs, harm'-ess exhibitions etc., is among the best that the farmer every makes either as regards himself or his family. It should be the study of every hu hand and father on the 1'ann to brighten the life of tho e in the bouse. The life of a farrier's wi e is exceedingly monotonous. If we men were eon! tied to the house day a'ter day, with a regular ' run1' 1 rstween the dining room and the kitchen, we should soon have need of more lunatic asylums; we should be come widely impatient under the rc stralnt, and it is to be hoped that all of us ar thoughtful enough to cons'der that our wives and daughters Heed all the relief from this monotony that they can get. Almost all of us know what it is to be b thered when the spring work begins, and as it progresses, by extra things to do. Tools and implements are noi al ways in order, andth re may be repairs to do about the premises which will not permit of longer delay. As to the former, if we put them away in the fa 1. in aur imyierfect cond tion. we had better see to getting them in order now. If it is necessary to take them to a mechanic there will be no better time o do it than now. And as to the general repairs about the premises, man, of them can be done in v int r, and should be done. We need to keep in view the fact that when the work begins, we will be in a hurry, and that it is vers unprofitable to be called away from it. Western Rural. Hints Concerning Clover. Clover is sown, as a rule, early in the spring, whether wilh some grain crop, the cultivated grasses or as a crop by itself. A practice common in the North ern States is to sow clover on late snows in March or April. The analysis of red clover indicates wdiat manures will increase its growth. It contains from thirty-two to thirty four per cent, of lime and about the same per cent, of potash, with nine to ten per cent, of phosphoric acid, mag nesia etc. As lime enters so largely into it- composition, lands liericieui in this respect require generous applica tions of lime. Deficient soils are also benefited by gypsum (sulphate of lime), the pin spnates and wood-ashes. om mon stable manure, containing as it does all the elements of a good fertilizer. is also suitable as a top dressing for any past re or meadow. While gypsum is not always a success on ordinary soils, sown nroaucast at the rate t one to three nunurea nusne s after the leaves are developed, it seldom fails to promote a remarkable growth of stem and leaves. Experiments made by Dr. Pkicus, of Germany, regarding the action of gyp-um ou clover made it appear that the sulphates check the th velopmenl of the tlowers and also of tho seed, from which he inferred that, while the application of gyp-um is favorable to a large increase in the vield of ha it is not favorable to the deve'opment or the seed crop, t onim ssioner Kille brew, of Tennessee, says he has rarely found benefit from the to"p dressing of gypsum on clayey loams: itseflects have aiways been apparent on a strong lime stone son. in a lrv season gypsum is undoubtedly beneficial on all soils, and it always serves a good end n its Irgh- ly stimulating effects on well-restored lands where there is a good coat of clover. Bones are also an invaluable aid to clovers, their leading elements being lime and phosphoric acid: nitrogen is also abundant. A dressing of bone dust will often quite restore old pastures which have been long cropped and the phosphate of lime exhausted. Grasses are greallv benefited bv wood ashes. A top-dressing of ashes may be applied to grass on all kinds of soil with the assur ance that they will pay the expense at tending the application. For perma nent mowing lauds ashes are advised when they ean be obla ued in su'Vc'ent quantity. Coarse manures ought thr wn on clover, as thev not to be arc liable to injure the plants. An dressing for mead iwg, excellent top to be applied after the last cutting or in the spring, when the soil is poor, is barn-yard manure composted with muck, peat, leaves sod, potato tops and other pcr-i-hable ' egctable matter. lVof. Levi Moekbridge, of Massachu setts, arter a series of experiments with mineral manures at the Agricultural ( rllegc at Amherst, prepared the fol lowing b rmula for a fertilizer to be sown on clover broadcast in the early spring to induce an increased yield: Nitrogen 13 pounds; potash, 40 pounds, and phosphoric acid 11 pounds. These m te rials he advised to be supplied in the form of sulphate of ammonia. 21 per cent, dry salt. 21" pounds: muriate potash, 80 per cent, dry salt. 80 pounds; superphosphates, so pounds. This amount was designed for one acre.- N. Y. Worll. For sale A fine farm in the glori ous new Northwest.

It may interest a good many read ers to know just how far a farmer has to walk d'iring the cropping reason. I have gone to the tiouble to find out how far a man must walk to put in and tend forty acres of corn. To plow the ground, with a sixteen -inch three horse plow, he travels 2.ro miles; to harrow the ground thoroughly be: ore planting, be will have to travel ll 0 miles; to plint the same, he travels 50 miles to cultivate it three times, he will have to travel ."00 miles making a total of 700 miles, b -sides the gathering. Alter this is all done, he has harvesting, etc., to do. tl. Y. Tribune. Test the Seed. All kinds of seed which is to be sown in large ipiantities should be tooled be fore using it. Th.s rule should not on ly bo observed with seeds purchased, but with those saved by the gardener and farmer tor his own use. Almost every year We hear of failures to secure a good si and of corn and o her grain on account of poor seed, which might have been avoide I if the seed had been tested before planting and sowing. Seed corn is more likely to be injured daring wiiber than almost any other kind of grain, because it is usually left on the cob, and if exposed to moisture the cob absorbs it, the grain attached swells, and even ma' es an clort ta grow: it then shrinks again as the at mosphere becomes dry, without in:he least changing the outward appearace of the grain, while the vitality may be greatly weakened if not entirely des troyed. Seed-corn, Jor this reason, should always be stored in a very dry, cool place, and it is a good plan to hang it up in the crib or some dry building during the winter months, lint if care fully spread out to dry when first gath ered in ihe fall, it may be preserved in Mod condition in open, well-ventilated bins or barrels. However careful iy it may have leen kept, or sound it may appear in spring, it is a good plan to shell a small lot and test, it before planting time arrives. Fifty or a hundred kernels of average quality should be taken and planted in a box of good soil or pure sand, and then set in a warm position in the house, where, if good, the sprouts w ill soon appear above ground. Count the number, in order to know the propor tion of good seed, and then try some other kind of seed in the same box. If every farmer would test his seed corn in this way, we would then know whether to lay the blame of fai ure on the seed or to unfavorable weather or errors in planting. All seeds purchased should be tested in like manner, because no one would desire to incur the expense of fitting the soil for any nse seed that kind of a i rop and then will not grow. Most seeds, such as onio is, and even wheat and kinds of small beets, carrots. oa'a, may be tested by sowing .n -and, or even on sheets ot cotton placed m a shallow dish and kept moist and warm. We prefer sand to soil in testing seed, because it is not so likely to get hard on the surface after giving water from time to time as re .uired and as the ob cct is not to raise the plants, but merely to test their vitelity, rich soil is entirely unnecessary. Neither is light required; consequently a dark room is as good for this purpose as any other. In testing tree seeds or those with a hard or lough horn-like covering, considerable heat is required to open the pores an I admit moisture, which is es ential in sprout ing all kinds of s ed-. Some kinds, such as the honev and black locust, may be immersed in boil ing water and allowed to remain in it until cool; after which mix the-n with sand and set them near afire, or where the temperature will ran re between sevent- and ninety degrees. If the seeds sprout i nder these conditions, the entire i,uan!ilv obe sown may lc sub jected to the same kind of treatment a few days before sowing in spring. It is well not to leave them in the sprouting boxes too long, or some of the sprouts will be broken off in handling and sow ing. It often happens t at locust, osage orange, and other kinds of ire- seeds become so dry that the moisture of the ground in sprin and its tow tempera ture are not Bttfffcieat to insure germi nation: but after they have been once started as we have directed, growth will proceed without ccs-alion. In -t-ing very minute Eeeds care should be taken to cover them properly, fo- it they are buried deep'y many kinds will fail to show any signs of life, either in doors or out. If spread over a smooth surface of sand, a sheet of paper over them kept wet will be sufficient. Such ex) eritnents as we have de scribed may not only prove of great value in determining the qualify ot one's stock of seed, but most persons may learn from them something more than they ever knew before about the growth of plants. They will see that some k nds of seed rise out of the soil as the radie'e or root, pushes down into it, while others throw up a stem the peed roper remaining at the depth at which it was first placed. Peans and peas show these two Opposite character istics. In fact, those who have anv taste or inclination to observe such things can find much to aniu-e and in struct them in testing the seeds to be used in the garden on the farm. V. Y. Hun- An Incredible (VI inc. An astonishing trial has just ended in St. Petersburg the trial of a boy of sixteen for the murder of his father and its most astonUhing feature, was tho boy's testimony. He confessed his guilt, but maintained an appearance of ansa pleto indifference during the proceed ings, and when asked what motives had induced him to commit the crime, sim ply said : " My father prevented me from con tinuing my studies and making for mv self a brilliant career. He also would not allow me to read novels, and that ia why I resolved to get rid of such a rough, uncultured father." "How was the crime committed?" asked the President. "One night when my mother was out of town I crept out of led and went to the kitchen for a hatchet. On my way there I said to myself : 'MyGod! What ami about to do?' But then I thought, 'Is there a God? Who can prove it?' So I took the hatchet and went into my father's room. He did not move, but I opened the window to make sure that he was asleep, and then I struck him a blow on the head with the hatchet. lie sprang up and cried help!' but fell back immediately on the ground. Then I took the hatchet back to the kitchen, dressed myself and went out. In the morning when I came back thev told me my father was dead. I know I havo done wrong, but it can't be helped." Dress and F.dncatlon. A little girl appeared at the infant school at Wanborough, Eng., one day not long ago, in a dress which had a narrow tlounce at the bottom, thereupon t he door was shut in her face because, forsooth, the" flounce offended against the rule that infants must come to school "neat and plain in their dress." The child was told to go home and tell hor mother that the flounce must be re moved; but the mother had no idea of spoiling the dress, and so her worthy husband, Mr. John Balchin, laborer, was presently haled before the justice on the charge of neglecting to send his child to school. In the end it w a de cided that the defendant must either "take off the flounce" or find another school, and on appeal the educational department declared that it had no power to interfere with the rules of vol untary schools. It is unfortunate that the child should have lost so much schooling, but there is consolation in knowing tnat a check has been put on the frightful extravagance of the Balchin family in the matter of wearing apparel. The cigarette has obtained a pop ularity among the school-boys of Phila delphia that has alarmed the authori ites, and various plans for reform have been proposed. A principal of a gram mar school estimates that seventy-live per cent, of the male pupils under his charge are smokers, against less than half that number before cigarettes came into common use. The only measure thus far adopted is of a persuasive nature. A circular setting forth the hurtfulness of tobacco, and especially of bad cigarettes, has been placed in the hands of every boy, and pasted inside the cover of each text book. Philadel phia Press. A brakeman ran ahead of a train on the Kansas Pacific Railroad to scare off some Texas steers that refused to recognize the whistle. One of the horned monsters turned on him and he fled, but he was not swift enough, and the steer caught him under the coat-tail and landed him on top of ihe dome of tin boiler, lie was badly burned before he could be removed, and remained uncon scious for two hours.
