Waterford Me.) Cor. X. Y. Sun. The Sevastopol or To-Day. Twenty-eight times the earth has run around the sun since the last bomb burst over the "august city" of Sevas topol, and yet the ruin's of houses, churches and forts are aa fresh and plentiful as if they had been made but yesterday. The least sea breeze raises the clouds of dust and sand, and the unhappy city stands a sad reproach to Russian neglect. And yet it is a holy place. There an- the historical earth works, and Malakoff Hill saturated with Russian blood. There fought, suf fered and died nay. marched to a sure death hundreds of thousands of Rus sian soldiers. There is the historical grave of a legion of Russian heroes, but do proud mausoleum crowns that tomb. It is covered with yellow grass, thistles and heaps of dust. Alas! such a grave never suggests the thought-. '-Inglorious death there is immortal glory. No- it rather says: '-Nations, like men, are ungrateful." During twenty-eight years our coun try has not done anything to assist in the resurrection of Sevastopol, and the authorities have seemed to thwart every sign of life there.. Sevastopol is one ot' the best commercial ports in the world, but the Ministry of the Navy greedily sticks to every piece of laud indispensa ble to the merchants. And so the Se vastopol if to-day is neither a commer cial nor a naval port. Refore the t 'ri mean war there were in Sevastopol 50, "" inhabitants, and now it hardly count s a third of that number. Certain ly, under the present circumstances, the Sevastopolians can not rebuild their city with their own means. Nature has made Sevastopol and the Crimea in general a real gem. Winter is not know n there, and delicate semi-tropical fruits and the beautiful sea make it a most desirable resort for inval ds and tourists. It is our Italy or our Florida. But our countrymen are so accustomed to frosts, snow and ice that they do not appear to care at all for that Bern!-tropica paradise, the Crimea, In Sevastopol there is a small cape call "the Cape of Free Contempla tions." We wonder what thoughts are in the minds of our countrymen who yisit that cape. In view of' the ruins, of the dust and dirt of the "august city,"' of the forn-otten rraves of a hun dred thousand heroes, (,f the rare natu ral forts uot utilized, does it not occur to them that Russia is playing the part ol a stepmother toward her bravest and most unfortunate child. Sevastopol? St. tter$bttrg Xovoe Yrcmin. Feeding Fowls in Winter. Writing for the Country Gentleman, a correspondent says that the health of fowls, especially 'in cold weather, de pends greatly on the regularity and fre quency of feeding. As cofn is the sta ple grain, it should be kept within reach of the fowls so that they may help themselves at pleasure ami thus they will regulate the quantity taken at one time as suits their convenience and comfort. Filling the crop is injurious at all times, and particularly so in se vere weather. A large fowl when stint ed, and seeing corn but twice, and Often but once in a day, will fill the crop to repletion, taking in a half pit or more at a feed. This chills the fowl, and if inclined to be tender, brings on indiges tion, which is difficult to manage at that sear-on. If fed in this manner, where there are many fowls and the quantity insufficient, the ma-ster fowls take the whole at the expense of the others. 1 have found that the better way to feed fowls in cold weather, more es pecially laying hens, is to keep corn by them the whole time. 1 put it in troughs at the side of the building. In this manner they will have an eoual chance, and will till up the crops at night. If it is not all digested by morning the fowl is not strong or in perfect health. Mv rule for feeding laying hens in cold weather is some times varied, but I generally endeavor to give a soft warm feed in the morn ing. I sometimes mix chopped onions with it, but as a rule I give them sepa rately. This vegetable is an excellent antidote for disease, and the fowls be come extravagantly fond of it. They will eat onions at any time of the jear and at large or in confinement. In making the mush I used unboiled corn meal scalded with boiling water, with sufficient grease or drippings to make the whole palatable. The greasy mat ter softens the meal and causes it to be come digestible. The feed should not be so soft as to be mushy r sloppy, neither should it be so stiff as to choke the fowls when swallowing it, but just thick enough to stand up and keep in si ape. 1 am particular as to the manner and matter of the feed of my fowls at all times, and especially so in cold weather, when they yield the larger profit in eggs. My aim in keeping fowls is eggs alone, therefore it becomes necessary to be careful concerning the feeding. The health depends upon it, also the profit. Regularity is important with fowls as vell as all farm stock. Habits once formed are permanent, and fowls may be trained to suit the needs and ends o'f the keeper, if persevered with. But the keeper must be always regular, for the fowls become impatient of delay and know their regular periods. It is as easy to raise eggs in cold weather as in warm, and far more profitable, if the keeper is not afraid of trouble and constant care. The fow ls must be attended to, and it is no small matter where the flocks are large to keep a steady supply of water when the weather is so severe that it freezes iu a few hours. They must also have warm shelter, comfortable roosts, and ground floor for scratching. Lay ing hens are active, and their activity must be promoted. As soon as the old fowls are through the annual moult, which should occur before going into winter quartet s, they should be sunnlied with egg-producing food. The vege tables should be fed separately. I olten give some at the time of giving other food, ami the fowls mix as suit's their appetites. Whole corn is the main reliance, and is always at hand. The other feeds are interspersed and varied from time to time, alwavs ob serving the regular period with some kind of food that is palatable.

Her eloquence was at times marvelous. I once heard her desciibe the Captain of a slave-ship going up to judgment, followed by his vict 'msas they gathered from the depth of the sea. in a strain that reminded me of Clarence's dream in Shakespeare, nnd ctpialed it. The anecdotes of her ready wit and qujeJc, striking replies are numerous. She used to gay to us: You read books; God Himself talks to me.'

Old orchards, as well as voting. should be carefully examined" every year to remove anv limbs that li.n-n lied or that show any weakness. To remove large limbs not only is a sharp saw required but also a sharp ax anil a two-inch chisel with which to smooth otl the wounds where the limbs are sawed off, for, if the wound be left just as me saw leaves it, it will require moon longer lime ior it to neal over than if smoothed over so that there are no sharp corners. in trimming old trees, when most ol the branches of a large limb have died ii is el-si iii remove ine entire limb un to the trunk of the tree, for if left it will die back to the tree, or at least be come so diseased that when cut off the wound will not readily heal, but will most likely begin to decay long before it is healed over. It is much better to remove large limbs at this season of the ear than during the snrinir months the sap of the tree being comparatively at rest the wounds are more likely to become dry and hard, than if cut in March and April. 15ut at whatever season of the year a large limb is re moved it should be at once covered with material that will keep the water out. anous substances are Used for this purpose: formerly the wounds were covered with a mixture made of equal parts of clay and cow manure; this was very good while it was kept on, oir it soon washed on unless cov ered with a cloth, even then it would wash out under the cloth sometimes sumcient to leave a chance for the worms to get into the new wood. Shel lac varnish has been used with good success, but this needs watching, as it a a m win, it put on too thick, sometimes peel off. White lead slightly thinned with oil has been found to make an ex cellenl covering, although there would seem to he an objection to using a sub ,..., :.i , i .. . si..iiec wiiii so mucn on in it: out ex- exporienco proves that a wound made by the removal of a large limb will heal as quick by keeping it covered with a good coat of paint, or by anv ither substance. This is very easy to apply, and, as it win not wash oft, it requires but very little attention after being applied, and there is not the danger of worms get ting into the wound as there is with some other substances. Massachusetts Ploughman. . Top Dressing Meadows. When farmers have succeeded in getting jfood varieties of grass well es tablished in a tield they should endeav or to preserve it as long as possible. Considerable risk always attends the sowing of grass-seed. A good stand is not always secured, no matter how much pains are taken in the prepara tion of the soil and the sowing of the seed. The seed itself costs a considera ble sum. In many eases only a very small crop of grain is produced on the land the year the sued is sown. Every thing considered the cost of seeding a field to gras is large. It is according ly desirable to keep it productive as long as practicable. The yield of grass mav ba kept up by the judicious appli cation of fertilizers. Ashes, lime, land plaster, salt and commercial fertilizers are all highly beneficial, but stable ma nure is generally productive of the most satisfactory restilts. It should be well rotted, and ought to be finely pulver ized before it is applied, or at least be fore it is left on the grass. The best time to apply it is in the fall. The sod is then firm, and teams can be driven over it without doing any great amount of damage. The weather is then cool and the volative portions will not evap orate a- fast as in summer. Dews are ordinarily heavy and key will keep the moist. Plains are frequent and they will dissolve the soluble parts of the manure and will carry the remainder close to the surface of the ground. (iras will come erv early in the spring on land manured in this wav. It will make a large growth, but will" have no offen sive taste. Chicago Times, USEFUL AND SCGGESTIYE.

End of a Corslcan vendetta. The vendetta between the two Corsl can families of Kicoll and l'ietri, which has lasted for seven years, has only now been brought to a conclusion, through the intervention of 1L Jacques de Teretti, a friend of both families. The feud arose during the municipal elections in the village of San tiariro, to which both families belonged. The Pietris defeated the Nicolls at the poll, and the head of the family was elected Mayor. A few days afterward he was shot through the" head; and though there was no proof that the Nicolls had murdered him, this was taken for granted by his family, and two men of the Nicoll family we're soon afterward "found dead." After this three of the l letris were murdered: and so the feud went on for seven j ears: the other in habitants being compelled to go about armed, and being so exasperated that they talked about killing off both fami lies as the only means of scL-urin"- tran quility. Fortunately. M. Jacques de Peretti, Mayor of Eevie, a ne;ghboring town, determined to intervene, and ne suc ceeded after some difficulty in effecting a reconciliation. A regular treaty was signed between the belligerents; and upon a given day the members of both families assembled in the parish church and took the following oath, which was administered to them by the priest: "Here in the presence of (Jod and of the congregation, we swt ar, upon the faith of Christians and upon the honor of Corsicans to lay down our arms from this day and abandon all idea of re venge, living in peace, as we should have done heretofore, and declaring un worthy the name of Corsican any mem ber of our families, should any such there be which may God forbid who is false to his or her plighted troth." T he two families then exchanged the kiss of peace, and a formal report of the proceedings was forwarded to and pub lished in all the Corsican newspapers. SL James Gazette.

A If ear's Subscription dHi TO How to Make PuiT Paste. In spite of the various crusades against pastry and pies they continue to nave an important place in the Amer can cuisine. When pastry is well made it is much less likely to be harmful than when it is carelessly prepared with inferior materials. To tell the truth, the majority of cooks do not know how to prepare pastry, and they cither semi to the table a tough, leathery mass that is entirely in digestible, or sometimes mat iairly rerks with lard. Everybody has an ambition to make good pastry, and every one who has tried it acknowledges that it is one of the most ditlicult things to do in all cookery. But if the ingredients used are good, and the rules lor its prepara tion be carefully followed, there is no reason why the pastry should not be both delicate and digestible. A demon stration lesson on pastry at the cooking school always nrinirs out an unusuallv large number of ladies. Mrs. Lincoln gave this demonstration on Thursday last, with the best possible resnlt. Puff paste is the richest of all pastry, and it is used for pates, tarts, cheese straws, bow knots and other such fan ciful and ornamental dishes. To make it. the following ingredients are used, and always in the given proportions: One pound of butter, one pound of flo ur, one-half a teaspoonful of salt and about one cup of ice water. The butter must be of the finest quality of dairy butter, as poor butter will make villainous pastry. Wash it well, divide into four equal parts, and cool between two pans of ice in this manner: Fill a square tin pan with bits of chopped ice; on this place an other pan, napkin lined, into which place the pieces of butter; cover with another napkin and on this set another pan also tilled with chopped ice. Mix the salt with the tlotir, take one part of the butter and rub lightly into the Hour, using only the tips of the fingers; do not let the butter melt: it should crumble into small bits and each bit should be well mixed with Hour; but there should be nothing like a smooth pasty look; mix stiff with the ice water, putting in a little at a time, and cutting it in with a rather broad-bladed knife. Roll it out one-half an inch thick and in the rolling lies the success of good pastry; do not roll back and forth with heavy strokes, but roll from the person with long, light strokes, quickly re peated. It is the heavy rolling' bat k and forth, pullinp; the'douerh in two directions, that jrives the toiirh. leathery crust. The fineness, lizhtness and delicacy of pastry depends almost entirely upon the qu ckness and deli cacy of mapipulation. Before rolling the paste the board should be lightly floured, just enough to preveut the paste from adhering, but not enough to admit of any more Dour beinr mixed in to harden it. If the paste litis softened so that il will adhere in spite of all ef forts, lay it between the ice to hardcti. Uo this alwavs m paste-makinc: of any kind, when the paste is softeningr,- the soltening indicates butter is melting, and disastrous to the result. just here about the utensils. hotild be perfectly smooth and should never be used for anything except for oread and pastrv. rothmjr should be allowed to adhere to its surface, and the worker should alwavs keen a clean cloth by her to wipe off the board as often as it shall need it ; always before putting flour on wipe it clean from all particles. This mav seem unnecessary abor to some, and they mav be in clined to think it "more nice than wise." but there is a crood reason for this care. If the particles were not re moved before the flour was sprinkled on to the board, they would form with the flour little hard "bulbs, which would adhere to the surface of the paste, and when it was baked there would be these lumps unmixed with the rest of the paste all through, spoiling both the onks and the taste. Ihe rollino; pin should be of glass, and the same care should be exercised to keep it also free from adhering particles. When the paste is cold and hard, roll until it is alf an inch thick. Take one of the pieces of butter, roll it thin and lay it n an unbroken line down the middle of the pashe, fold the sides lightly over the utter, allowing all the air that will be auiht to remain inside ; fold the ends over lightly also, then fold together, and there will be a rectangular figure of the paste with a number of thick nesses ; pat with the roller into a flat cake, giving short, quick blows ; roll out aga:n, in the same way as before, taking great care not to break any of the air bubbles; repeat this process with all the other pieces of butter, cool ing the dough as often as it seems to soften : after the butter is all in repeat the folding, patting and rolling from three to fire times, then put between the ice again nntil ready to use.
