A Sad-iron Catastrophe. The other night, says the Burlington Hawkeye, a man who lives out on Co lumbia street wss kept down town by business until a very late hour, and his wife knowing how cold he would be . when be got home put an iron on the stove, and when she heard him open the gate, ahe jumped up, and hurriedly wrapping the iron in a piece of flannel, put i in bed 'or him to warm his great ufflv feet bv. The man was cold and taciturn and cross. He crawled into bed with a growl, and shuddered with ld as ha stretohen nimseif out. 'men gave a yell and jammed- his head araant the head board and screamed fire and waltzed out - on the floor and ground the room in the dark, straddling neking-chaira and breaking hisakias on .u corners and knocking down eta with his sboultiers. snd upset ting one or two things and filling the darkness with weird, fantastic profanity. When hia wife lighted the lamp, they discovered beautiful photograph of a fad-iron on the bottom of that man's foot, and it was found that the flannel bad somehow got off the foot-warmer. Tbe man says that hereafter, if he must sleep with a hardware store, he wants it put in cold.

When I was a boy there was but one permanent ambition among my com rades in our villsge on the west bank of the Mississippi river. Tbst was, to be a ateamboatman. We had transient am bitions of other sorts, but they were only transient. When a circus eame snd went, it left us all burning to be come clowns ; the first negro minstrel show that eame to oar section left us all suffering to try that kind of life ; now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God wonld permit us to be pirates. These ambitions f sded out, each in ita turn ; but the ambition to be a steam boatman always remained. ' Once a dav a ahean. candv Docket ar rived upward from St. Louis, and an-T j otner downward from jLeoKux. xsg these events had transpiied the day vas glorious with expectancy; alter they had transpired tbe day was a dead and empty thing- Not only the boys, bnt the whole village, feK this. After all these years I can proture that old time to myself now jaat ss it was then ; the white town drowsing in the sunshine of a summer's morning : the streets empty. or pretty nearly so ; one or two elerks sitting in front of the Water street stores, with their splint-bottomed chairs tilted back against the wall, chins on breaste, bats slouched over their faces, asleep with shingle-shavings enough around to show what broke them down ; a sow and a litter of pigs loafing along the side walk, doing a good business in water melon rinds and seeds ; two or three lonely little freight piles scattered about the "levee;" a pile of "skids" on the slope of the stone-paved wharf, and the fragrant town drunkard asleep in the shadow of them ; two or three wood fists at the head cf the wharf, but no body to listen to the peaceful lapping of the wavelets against them ; the great Mississippi, the msjestie, the magnifi cent Mississippi, rolling its mile-wide tide along, shining in the sun ; the dense forest away on toe other aide; tbe "point" above the town and the "point" below, bounding the river-glimpse, and turning it into a sort of sea, and withal a very still snd brilliant and lonely one. Presently a film of darx smoke appears above one of those remote " points ;" instantly a negro drayman, famous for his quick eye snd prodigious voice, lifts op the cry, " 8-t-e-a-m-boat a-oomin' 1" and the scene changes. The town drunk ard stirs, the clerks wake up, a furious clatter of drays follows, every house and store pours out a human contribu tion, and all in a twinkling the dead town is alive and moving. Drays, carts, men, boys, all go hurrying from many uarters to a common centre, tne wharf. Lssembled there, the people fasten their eyes ui on the coming boat as upon a wonder they are seeing for the first time. And the boat is rather a hand some sight, too. She is long, and sharp. snd trim, and pretty ; ahe has two tall, fancy-topped chimneys, with a gilded device of some kind swung between them; a fanciful pilothouse, all glass and " gingerbread," perched on top of the " texas" deck behind them ; , the paddle-boxes are gorgeous with a pic ture or with gilded rays above the boat's name ; the boiler deck, the hur rieane deck and the texas deck are fenced and ornamented with clean white railings ; there is a flag gallantly flying from the jack-staff ; the furnace doors are open and the fires glaring bravely ; the upper decks are black with passen- ! saitj aw.i l ws'.sk I Hi volumes of the blackest smoke are roll ing and tumbling out of tbe chimneys a nuananaea granaeur ereacea wua a bit of pitch pine just before arriving at a town ; the crew are gxonpad on the forecastle ; the broad stage is run far out over the port bow, and an envied deck-hand stands picturesquely on the ei d of it with a coil of rope in his hand; the pent steam is screaming through tbe gauge-cocks ; the captain lifts his hand, a bell rings, the wheels stop ; then they turn back, churning the water to foam, and the steamer is at rest. Then such a scramble aa there is to get aboard, and to get ashore, and to take in freight and to discharge freight, all at one and the same time ; ana no.i yelling and cursing ss tne mates jacirri. .z with ! Ten minutes later the steaj is under way again, with no flag jaek-atafi and no Diacc smoKC from tne emmneys. minutes the town is dea rsin, and the town drunkard asleep fly the skids enoe more. J My father MVgtioe of the peace. and 1 su P2Sf he possessed the power of H5f iWt.h nvor all men. and any body that offended him. 'his was distinction enough for me as a general thing ; but the desire to be a ateamboatman kept intruding, neverthe less. I first wanted to be a cabin-boy, so that 1 could come out with a white apron on and shake a table-cloth over the side, where all my old comrades could see mc ; later I thought I would rather be the deck-hand who stood on tbe end of the stage-plank with the coil of rope in his hand' because he wss particularly conspicuous. But these were only day-dreams they were too heavenly to be contemplated aa real possibilities. By and by one of our boys went away. He was not heard of for a long time. At last he turned np as spprentioe engineer or " striker" on a steamboat. This thing shook the bot tom out of all my Sunday-school teach ings. That boy had been notoriously worlds, and I just the reverse ; yet he was exalted to this eminence, and I left in obscurity and misery. There wss nothing generous about this fellow in his graatness. He would always manage to have a rusty bolt to scrub while his beat tarried at our town, and he would sit on the inside guard snd scrub it when we could all see him and euvy him and loathe him. And when ever his boat waa laid up he would soma homa and swell around the town -J in hia blackest sadgressiest clothes, sM that nobody could help remembering that he was a steanboatman ; and he used all sorts of stetmboat technical ities in his talk, ss if e were so used to them that he forgot nmmon people could not understand them. He would sneak of the larboard side of a horse in an easy, natural way that would make one, wish he wss dead. And he was al ways talking about " St. Lory" like an old citizen ; he would refer density to eeoasions when he " wss oomiag down Fourth street," or when he wss " pass ing by the Planter's House, or when there wss fire and he took a turn on the brakes of "the old Big Missouri ;" and then he would go on and lie about how many towns the size of ours were burned' down there that day. Two or three of the boys hsd long been persons of consideration stnong us because they bad been to St. Louis onoe snd hsd a vague general knowledge of its won ders; but tbe dsy of their glory was over now. They lapsed into humble silence, and learned to disappear when the ruthless " cub ' engineer spprosch ed. This fellow had money too, and hair-oil. Also an ignorant silver watch and a showy brsss watch chain. He wore a leather belt and used no suspen ders. If ever a youth was cordially admired and bated Dy his amnrarles, trfs was one, NtrtTTtswoH withstand is pbarrco. He '' ent out" every boy in the village. When blf rost blew up at last it dtf rated s traoqn' contentment amottg us such as w had not known for mnr.tha. JPj lot lt eTPoe aoroa the neat $ 8d STipeafceS in ' "- . bvlaat st-r? and wKre4 over by everybody, it seemed to us that the partiality of Providence for an un deserving reptile had reached a point where it was open to criticism. This creature's career oonld produce but one result, and it speedily followed. Boy after boy managed to get on the river. The minister's son became an engineer. The doctor's and the post master's sons became " mud olerks ; the wholesale liquor-dealer's sons became a barkeeper on a boat ; four sons ef the chief merchant and two sons of the oounty judge became pilots. Pilot was the grandest position of them all. The pilot, even In those davs of trivial wages, had a princely salary from a hundred and fifty to two hundred and fifty dollars a month, and no board to pay. Two months of his wages would pay a preacher's salary for a year. Now some of us were left disoonsolste. We could not get on the river at least our parents would not let us. So by and by I ran away. I said I never wonld come home again till I was a pilot and could come in glory. Bat somehow I could not manage it. I went meekly aboard a few of the boats that lay packed together lik sardines at the long St. Louis wWl, and very hnmbly inquired for thei1""". but got only a oold shouldered short words from mates snd oler I bsd to make the best of this sr of treatment for the time being, b- I had eomfort ing day-dreams t future when I ehould be a fat and honored pilot, with plenty of money, and could kill some pt these mates and elerks and conW pay for them. Months afterward the hove within me struggled to a reluctant death, and I found myself without an ambition. But I was ashamed to go home. I was in Oinninnati, and I set to work to map out a new career. I had been reading about the reoent exploration of the river Am azon by an expedition sent out by our government. It wss said the expedi tion, owing to difficulties, had not thoroughly explored a part of the coun try lying about the bead-waters, some four thousand miles from the mouth of the river. It was only abeut fifteen hundred miles from Cincinnati to New Orleans, where I could doubtless get a ship. I had thirty dollars left; I would go and complete the exploration of tbe Amazon. This was all the thought I gave to the subject. I never was great in matters of detail. I packed my va lise, and took passage on an ancient tub, called the Paul Jones, for New Orleans. For the sum cf sixteen dol lars I had the scarred and tarnished splendors of " her " main saloon princi pally to myself, for sne wss not a crea ture to attract the eye of wiser travelers. When we presently got under way and went poking down the bread Ohio, I became u new being, and the subject of my own admiration. I was a trav eler 1 A word never had tasted so good in my mouth before. 1 had an exult ant sense of being bound for mysteri ous lends and distant climes which I never have felt in so uplifting a degree einoe. I was in such a glorified condition that all ignoble feelings departed out of me, and I was able to look down and pity the untraveled with a compassion that bad hardly a trace of contempt in it. Still, when we stopped at villages and wood-yards, I oonld not Help loll ing carelessly upon the railings of the boiler deck to enjoy the envy of tbe country boys on the bank. If they did not seem to discover me, I presently snecsed to attract their attention, 'or moved to a position where they could not help seeing me. And aa soon as I knew they saw me I gaped and stretched, and gave ether signs of being mightily bored with traveling. I kept my hat off all the, time, and stayed where the wind and the sun could strike me because I wasted to get the bronzed and weather-beaten look of an old traveler. Before the second day was half gone I experienced a joy which filled me with the purest gratitude ; for I saw that the skin hsd begun to blister and peel off my face and neck. I wished that the boys and girls at home oonld see me now. We reached Louisville in time at least the neighborhood of it. We stuck hard and fast on the rocks in the middle of the river and lay there four days. I wss now beginning to feel a strong was an I liuif to Mill Willi and younger brother to the officers. Tnere is no estimating the pride I took in this grandeur, or the affection that began to swell and grow in me for those people. I could not know how the lordly ateamboatman scorns that sort of pre sumption in a mere landsman. I par ticularly longed to acquire the least trifle of notice from the big. stormy mate, and I was on the alert for an op portunity to do him a service to that end. It came at last. The riotous powwow of setting a spar was going on down on the forecastle, and I went down there and stood around in the way or mostly skipping out of suddenly a n n l nirW for "gTOfitiaiTTo bring him a capstan bar. I sprang to his side snd said, "Tell me where it is ; I'll fetch it I" If a rag-picker had offered to do a diplomatic service for the emperor of K nasi a, tbe monarch could not nave been more astounded than the mate was. He even stopped swearing. He stood and stared down at me. It took him ten seconds to serape his disjointed remains together again. Then he said impressively : " well, if this don t beat hell I" and turned to his work with the air of a man who had been eon fronted with problem toe abstruse for solution. I crept away and courted solitude for the rest of the day. I did not go to dinner ; I stayed away from supper un til every body else had finished. I die not feel so much like a member of the boat's family now as before. However, mv spirits returned in installments as we pursued our way down the river. I was sorry I hated the mate so, because it was not in (young) human nature not to admire him. He was huge and mns eular; hia face was bearded and whis kered all over ; he hsd a red woman and a blue woman tattooed on his right arm one on each side of a bine anchor with a red rope to it ; and in the matter of profanity he was perfect. When he waa getting out cargo at a landing, I was alsaya where I could see and hear. He felt all the sublimity of his great position, and made the world feel it, too. When be gave even the simplest order, he discharged it like a blast of lightning, and sent a long, reverberat ing peal of profanity thundering after it. I could pot help contrasting the way in which the average landsman would give an order with tbe mate's way of doing it. If the landsman should wish the gang plank moved a foot further forward, he would probably say: James, or William, one of you push that plank forward, please ;" but put tne mate in his place, ana he would roar out : " Here, now, start that gang plank for'ard I Lively, now I What're you about 1 Snatoh it, snatch itl There, there I Aft again, aft again I Don't you hear me ? Dash it to dash I are vou going to sleep over it! "Vast heaving. 'Vast heaving, I tell you ! Going to heave it clear astern? Where 're you going with that barrel ? For'ard with it 'fore I make you swallow it. you dash-dash-dssh-dashed split between a tired mud-turtle and a crippled hearse horse 1" I wished I could talk like that. When the soreness of my adventure with tne mate bad somewhat worn off. I began timidly to make np to the humblest official oonneoted with the boat the night watchman : He snub bed my advances at first, but I pres ently ventured to offer him a new chalk pipe, and that softened him. So he al lowed me to sit with him by the big bell on the hurricane deck, and in time be melted into conversation. He could not well 1 ave helped it, I hung with such homage on bis words and so plain ly showed that I felt honored by his . notice. He told me the names of dim capes and shadowy islands as we glided by them in the solemnity of the night. under the winking stars, and by snd by got to talking about himself.

It was a sore blight to find out after ward that he was a low, vulgar, ignor ant, sentimental, half-witted humbug, an untraveled native -of tbe wilds of Illinois, who had absorbed wil-doat liter ature and appropriated its marvels, un til in time he had woven odds and ends of the mess into this yarn, and then gone on telling it to fledgelings like me, until he had come to believe it himself. Mark Iwain. in Atlantic Tbe Bell Punch. The bell punch, which hss been with in the past few months adopted on many of the lines of street railways in this country and Europe, is a sorpf exter nal conscience, intended neasVp con duotors honest. Complaints and jokes about "knocking down" as it was called that is, the dishonest retention of fares by the conductors have for many years been curreut ; and, althoagh the companies occasionally caught a con ductor by means of "spotters," the spotter system was but a clumsy and inefficient contrivance. The patent of the bell punoh belongs to the American Railway Register com pany of Buffalo, and the punches them selves are manufactured at Colt's pistol factory in Hartford, They are not sold to the companies, but are loaned to them at a fixed rata. There are two punohea for each oar, the rental being twenty-five cents per day for " each punoh. The punoh whioh is used to day is turned into the office to be reset for to-morrow, snd in the meantime the conductor employs the spare instru ment. They are very handsome and well-made articles, and every conductor is compelled to deposit a hundred dol lars with the company for the safe keeping and fair usage of the punches. They are said to be very effective as protection against dishonest conductors. The mode in which they operate is as follows : The conductors are furnished with a bell punch and a large strip of card called a " trip ticket." Aa soon ss they receive a fare they are bound to punch a hole in this ticket, and as they do so an internal mechanism of the pnnch strikes a small bell and thus gives pub lio notice that the conductor has per formed his duty and has made himself responsible for a fare. If he does not ring the bell he is liable to detection by " spotters," who are constantly flitting bout on all the lines, and who, of oourse, can much more readily detect an act of bishonesty by this system than by the old one. In order to "beat tbe punoh" and cheat tbe companies, two different instruments have been in vented. In tbe first case the conductor holds in his left hand a small metalio ease, inside of whioh is a small bell struck by a racket and spring. When the conductor has received the fare he lifts the bell punch and pretends to nip the holes in the card, but instead of do ing so be touches the racket of tbe oou seoTet of course imagihS'that the sound they heard was emitted by the punoh. In the second esse the concealed instru ment is of the same construction, but is worked differently. - It is hung round the conductor's neck, and the racket is affixed to a loose string fastened to a leather belt round his waist. As soon as he has received the fare he again goes through the motion of punohing the oard, bnt instead of doing so he straightens himself up, tightens the string which operate upon the rackt-t, and the bell is rounded. There are about 1,600 bell ;arjTTrman 0 in Boston. 200 in Chicago, 150 in Buffalo, 100 in Providenoe, 160 in Al bany, and 200 in Trov, in London there are 1,600 in use, in Dublin 1,200, and 150 in Liverpool. The Streets of StambouL A writer describing the streets of Btamboul says : "Every nationality un der heaven seems here to have given each other rendezvous for business and pleasure. Mussulman, Jew, and Chris tianSyrian, Greek, and Turk Frank and Arminian, with all the nondescript Levantine brood of half-breeds and hy brids of every color under the sun, from the Ethiopian and the Moor to the Cir cassian, here jostle each other, and seem almost equally eager in pursuit of some invisible object. No Jr"tie has the predominance, for ten laug pages at least assail the ear at ever-step. Clusters of bright-colored Feruees are met at every step. Ladies and" their attend ants, old and young, dark and fair, meet the eye at every turn, offering a solid resistance to any attempt to make way against the current ; while flashing eyes and voluble tongues give further evi dence of vitality and ubiquity. Women chaffer with the shopman, toss his goods about, appeal to his conscience, and de precate his wares with as perfect and practical understanding of a woman's privileges as the most advanoed of their European sisters. The fast possibly lends a sharper edge to their speech, and increases the vivacity of their desire for bargains. In any case, I should judge that both the grave Turk and the plausible Ayminism have enough to do to hold their own against suoh keen, knowing customers. To those who have never been in a Turkish bazar I fear it would be impossible by words to convey any dear impression of the scenes whioh arrest the eye at every moment, and every one different from the other. Al bert Smith tried no mean powers of description, and ended by presenting a gorgeous picture of heaped np riches in every form and shape, from cashmere shawls and jewelled pipes to glittering arms and embroidered slippers. Never theless, the miles of these intricate cov ered ways, lit only from above by small sunk windows, with a line of shops on each side, and stalls jutting out in the midst of a pushing crowd of busy peo ple, of porters with heavy loads, who expect you to look out for the safety of your own head and eyes, have altogether a distracting effect. Nothing but a sin cere and conscientious desire for per sonal knowledge of the most practical kind would ever take a visitor through a aeries of successive explorations into the deeper byways of this vast labyrinth of shops snd alleys, which never appear to end. Perhaps a passionate longing for Oriental china, of which there are some rare and beautiful specimens to be picked up, or a Persian carpet of un rivalled colors, the indulgence, in fine, of any strongly developed collector's mania, might carry tbe day and make its victim find compensation for days of ex hausted strength ; but I do not believe in persistence nnder weaker impulses. To tbe traveler, nevertheless, in teaich of tbe most characteristic traits or dit tinctive features of each place and peo ple he visits, let him not tail to go to the two great bazars of Stamboul, and ha will carry away with him memories of Turkith life and enhtoms nothing else can supply and which time will not WiyyBBaterate." n.Knh. -it.,..; 1... few otlir tlsy tola BaCiW '-war 1 ftwltsi wsiwcg, " 1 FARM AND GAR CAKE OP STOCK.

Lambs, and yearling ewes that are not to be bred from, may be put to gether and kept separate from other sheep. If any of (lie flocks have the scours, a table-spoonful of n mixture of prepared chalk and perppermint in wa ter, should be given onoe a day. Cos tiveness is quickly remedied by a little linseed oil-cake meal. Horses. Provide blankets for the horses. A warm blanket will save feed and loss of time by sickness. Avoid ex posure to oold rains, and if caught in a storm let the horses be rubbed dry be fore the blankets are put over them. Keep the stalls clean, and on no account allow, manure to gather beneath the horses' feet. This injures the hoofs, and often produces cracked heels. Be sides it renders the air foul, and is very injurious to the animals' eyes. In the effort to keep the stable warm, proper ventilation Bbould not be neglected. The curry-comb and brush should not lie idle ; their use invigorates the skin and -promotes healthful secretions. Cows. Milking cows will now need extra feed. On the whole, more value in milk: will be returned from bran than from any other feed not the light husks, but what is know as bran at country mills. A winter dairy well managed, may be made more profitable than a summer one. Dry cows should be kept in good condition. They are now storing up material for future profit. The future value of the calf too, depends upon how tbe dam is fed before its birth. Bran is excellent feed for in-calf oows, and it is cheap now. It is well not to waste time in milking cows that give only a quart a day, but it will be better to dry them off. Sheep. No stock suffer more from damp olose quarters, than sheep. They will winter better in the open field, than in a low damp filthy yard. But they should be spared either of these inflictions. An open shed that -may be closed in driving storms ought to be provided with a roomy yard in which they may lie in fair weather. Oats and corn are both dear this season, and bran, rye, or buckwheat, may be given with equal profit. A little variation of feed is good for sheen, bnt the chanireB should not be made frequently, or they will learn to tooK for it and become dis satisfied. Frozen grass or any oold watery feed is bad for ewes that are to lamb early. , ORCHARD AND KTJBSEBT. Leave. Collect and store as large a supply of these as possible, for covering and bedding. Bulbs potted and placed in the cellar, may be brought out from time to time, if they have good roots. Seedlings. Give protection, but not until the weather is quite cold ; if applied too early, growth sometimes occurs. , dons may be cut at any time when the wood is not frozen; store in saw-dust, and take care that they do not dry out during the winter. j Plowing. All plowing should ' be done early this month ; ground for new orchards will be in much better eon- Lawns. If the grass shows signs of fsiling apply a dressing of fine, well rotted manure. Where the. grass hss died out sow fresh seed and rake it in moothly and evenly. - Storing Hoots, Root crops'' and pota toes should be stored in dry pits, in preference to oellars beneath the house. Ventilation should not be neglected ; wisps of straw should be placed iu the tops of the pits every six feet apart, for this purpose. If any are still in the ground, they should be harvested with out delay. A good substantial and per manent root honse m a convenient place, will be found valuable. have a permanent road thronoh the mm. ire, wnicn tnouio De Kept in good re pair. Roadmasters should seethat mud holes and bad spots in the roads are filled with stones. Mendinar marls vrith earth at any season, is waste labor. There should be a Blake's stone crusher at every country mill where road mate rial can be procured. One year's use would pay for it. In nothing are we so behind the times as in the condition of our country roads. Manure is the basis of rood emna in n r ' i inlaw. awTi 1 Trfini rn rrnn lm sur-pHsed at the quantity applied to an ore uy our untet, gardeners, xivery method should be used to increase the supply. Gather leaves, wood's earth, swamp muck, to be used as absorbents for the liquid manure of-tbe stables or the house slops ; sods andMbam should be carted to the barn-yard for use in the stables. Grape Cuttings. The wood from the pruning of the grape vines may be used for propagation. Cut into pieces con taining two buds, and tie into bundles, snd bury in sand in the oellar. Varie ties ha d to start, like the Delaware, should be rooted in the green-honse or hot-bed from one-eye cuttings, while others, like Norton's Virginia, can only be profitably multiplied by layers. Boot Cuttings. Blackberries and raspberries are most readily propagated from root cuttings. The roots are cut into pieces two or three inches long, and packed closely in a box with earth ; there should be holes in the bottom of the box to allow of drainage, then bun the box and contents in a dry spot, and leave until spring. Swine. Fat hogs should be finished np as fast as possible. Those intended for home use should be finished upon dry shelled corn, with pure water only for drink. This will prodnaejirm hard pork. Store hops wiil dfbest upon cooked food, and in flfie of corn, boiled potatoes and bran ill make ex cellent feed. Buckwheatis too heating food for pigs, and eheukl be avoided. Brood sows may haveVue company of the boar if pigs are waited in March. The increased value of the firs litter of pigs will pay for a .pure bred. boar. Nothing is more oertsis than that it pays to breed only from pure blooded males, ofwhatever kind or freed they "may be. Blood will not stand, in place of feed. Blooded pigs are ntost profitable and thrive best where tere is a - f ull oorn Crib. " - " ) OLIVE OBOWINO FO)t PBOFTP IN TBE SOUTH. Desiring to detelop every possible re source of our favored region, we have constantly called attention to what seemed promising, new or little known, but valuable) plants, suited to our cli mate and likely top.ove profitable here. at the earner time carefully avoiding those eiag perated statements and high- moving them was performed with oom ly colored views whioh are apt to aovj parative ease, not more than eight or company the introduction of new things we nave aot made a --noooy oi any a them ; not that we diaiiKe eooDies alt srether. bnt because we think an edits". whose position is at the front, and wio should never be unhorsed, onght toe stride a more substantial steed. Weave encouraged experiment, out nave oun eelcd prndenoe in reference to al un tested atrricultural enterprises. J The olive is not a new thing n the coast region of tne sontn Atlanntnates, bnt it is little known as sn objecrif cul tivation, and the qnestion hi often come np in our mind, " Why on it not be profitably grown here, iere it thrives so well?" With thisnery in onr mind, we wrote to Mr. Rof rt Ohia olm, who, it is well known has had some experienoe in the culvntion of this frnit, asking his views y the sub ject. The following is his )ly r Deab Sib Yonr favor ofiie 27th has just come to hand, and I irove a few leianre moments to reply tilt. Neither the olive tree n its frnit is liable to any disease or jsect enemy tbat I have yet seen, but ie tree must not be exposed to shee or cattle, aa ijalii browB3 npon them, ine only dif- . atMrt Hmkt' rimww 6 rir ,riSas " iu ratwii more K'af(ioli. on wsayey-tsu on sandy soils, and most of our Sea island soils are of the latter class. The trees would succeed admirably on the tide water region, as its soil is muob more suitable. The trouble that I have experienced has been to get bags in which to press the fruit, as the bags need to be very strong to stand the pressure, which is necessarily considerable. InFranoethey use bags made of esparto grass, com monly called " Cabas d rJspartene. In my small grove, about eight acres. the trees grow vigorously, and when I could afford to cultivate either cow peas or sweet potato slips among them, they bore almost excessively every year and without any apparent injury ; but now that 1 cannot cultivate among them. they have returned to their European habit of bearing most only every alter nate year. In Europe the fruit, for pressure, is crushed bv a heavy roller, revolving in a circular grooved trough, but probably one of Bogardus eocentrio steel mills would answer quite as well, if not bet ter. During the late war, Dr. J. J. Chisolm. now of Baltimore, superin tended the making of oil from the ground-nut. for which he used a hy draulic press, with cotton osnabnrgs for bags, whioh won 11 most probably answer equally well for the olive. Upon request he would probably furnish you with the requisite information. A cor respondent asking for information, wrote me that he heard of one person who made $2,500 per acre from his olive trees, (piien sabe T OBJEEITHOUSB AND WINTER FIiANTS. Insects. Look out that no plants are put into the greenhouse whioh are cov ered with insects ; tbe only way to keep the house free, is never to let them get in. Camellias. Keep the plants in a cool room, where they can develop their buds properly. Syringe often to keep the foliage healthy. Propagate suoh plants as it is desira ble to have for winter blooming, or for setting out. or for sale in the spring. Climbers are necessary in a greenhouse to provide shade for tbe other plants. Passifloras, roses, tropoeduma, etc., are all valuable for this purpose. Annuals. Sow seeds of a few free flowering ones for winter flowers. Sweet alyssum and mignonette are good bonanet plants. Lobelias. If the low growing sorts were planted in the flower garden dur ing the summer, a portion should be taken up for planting in pots or pans for winter liowerrng, ferns are liable to become infested with rod-spider and scale, and if they are not watched closely they will soon perish, at least the more tender sorts. This month is a good time to divide such plants as are oapaole oi division. Fbrcina. Provide plants of dieen- tra. candytuft, dentzia. and other plants desired for winter flowering, and store in the cellar. Planting may often be done this month where the weather is n ild, but on no account set the trees in partially frozen soil : it is much better to heel in the trees in a dry sandy spot nntil spring, when they can be set out prop erly. ' -..- r FBTJIT GARDEN, Cuttings of currents snd gooseberries may be planted. The thing neoessary to insure success is that the earth be packed firmly around the base of the outtings. Covering. Try to borer strawberries, etc , just as freezing weather sets in ; this is easily done if the covering ma terial is at hand. Young grape vines are best covered with a few inches of earth. Pears of choice varieties well pre served, will now bring good prices in the markets. If packed in shallow boxes, containing one or two layers, each pear wrapped in soft tissue paper, tbe extra price will more than repay the trouble. drape Vines. Prune at once before cold weather sets in ; many persons do not prune until spring ; if left until then, the vines are liable to bleed. The various methods of pruning have, been described, snd it makes but little difference which is adopted. - ,-. Fruit should be kept in rooms or oellars where the temperature is as 35 or 40 degrees, the better wST the fruit Keep. Asparagus. Cover the bed ith a good dressing of coarse manure, straw or litter. Burn the seeds if tley are not wanted for new plantings. , Stocks for root grafting should be taken up, assorted, and tied in bundles of convenient size, and stored in boxes of damp saw-dust in the cellar,- where they can be easily reached during the winter. Boots. Place in pits aa recommended i " 1 nrnnBii tin with earth until the weat essary. The hardier roots, suoh as parsnips, salsify, horse-red ish. eta may be dug as long as the ground re mains unfrozen. - Coief Frames should be ready for eaDDages ana otner plants wintered over. Do not cover until freezing weather comes, and then only put on tne sasnes at nigra. Celerv. Store in trenches a foot wide, and as deep as neceessary to con tain the plants, -f ut the roots close to gether and cover with straw, giadually increasing the thickness as the cold in creases. Sundry Matters. Upon stormy days there will be found plenty of occupation in repairing harness, cleaning and put ting away tools, working in tbe carpen ter's snop, repairing grain bags, etc. Such work is recreation. As this is the season for selling poultry, let there be a good supply Kept for home use, and those whioh are kept for breed ing shon Id be well cared for, so that they may lay early. The ponltry house should be kept clean and well whitewashed, if it has not been already done. Keep the plow running m tbe corn stubbles until the ground is frozen. The long winter evenings should be devoted to study and donestio entertainments, in which tbe yonnger should be joined by the older ones. There are few things whioh will more readily make farm life agree able to children than the pleasant even ings which may be spent in a farm house, with books, papers, toys and games, in which the old folks renew their youth again. It is the want of this companionship which makes coun try life so generally dull and uninviting to young people. ,; , . Stones of Size. Some of the blocks of granite need in the construction of the treasury buttling at Washington are the largest ever moved in this country, and they tew all carried from the eastern part of Maine. They were transported to Washington by water, and. after their arrival there, moved by ox power npon a sort of double-pulley system, a dis tance of two miles, to the spot where they were wanted for use. The work of ten yoke of oxen being employed to move a block weighing more than sev enty tons. The fluted pillars, great numbers of which are used in the building, are forty feet long, and weigh filty tons at least. The largest blocks, thirty to forty feet square and thirty feet thick weighed upward of seventy tons. The facility with which these large blocks were moved and fixed in their plaoes were a source of wonder ment, and seemed to admiring specta tors to be the perfection of mechanical skill and ingenuity. And yet how in Bigniflcant the achievement when compared with the triumphs of an cient art. In the foundation of the great temple of the sun at Balbeo may Btill be seen, even in the second course, stones which are thirty seven feet long and nine feet thick ; and nnder these, about twenty feet from the ground, tnree stones which alone occupy one hundred and eighty-two feet in leugth by twelve feet high. These three stones are estimated to weigh 900 tons each !

The Buffalo Live Stock Journal gives the followinor instructions to breeders. in producing fowls that have no desire. to sit : The non-sitters comprise all tha dif ferent kinds, of Hamburgs. Spanish. Leghorns and Polands, and also some of tbe Frenoh fowls. To eradicate the instinct, whioh is so inherent in wild birds and so necessary to their existence, ponltry! keepers have taken the least oonstant sitters lor many geuemuuns, to lav es-ars for hatching. This is a eu- rions instanos of what can be done by the breeder's art, and is quite valuable as division of labor works as economi cally iu tbe poultry yard as in human society. Non-sitters, if well bred, will not give one confirmed case of sitting among fifty birds, though they some times sit for a few hours a day, but soon leave off. They often have periods of laying off for several days or a week These correspond to the sitting fever of the incubating breeds. The instances of fowls sitting steadily, although be long to a breed of pure non-Bitten, show reversion to the primitive type when incubation was universal. i A Dormant Wasp. I Says the Burlington Hawkeye : 1 West Hill minister picked up a frosei wasp on the sidewalk yeeterdav, an! with a view to advancing the interest! of science, be carried it in the houst and held it by the tail while he warmed its ears over a lamp-chimney. Hia ob ject was to see if wa pa froze to deathji or merely lay dormant during the winJ ter. He is of the opinion that theyj merelv lie dormant, and the dorm an teat kind at that, and when they revive, aaj says, the tail thaws out first, for while this one's head, right over the lamp, was so stiff and sold it could not wink, its orobe worked with suoh inoonoeiv- able rapidity that the minister couldn't gasp fast enough to Keep up witn it. He threw the vicious thing down , the lamp-chimney, and said he didn't want to have any more truck with a dormant wasp, at whioh his wife burst into tears and asked how he, a minister of the gospel, could use such language, right before the children, too. Chunks of Wisdom. Too muoh rest itself becomes a pain. Pleasure of every kind quickly satis fies. ' Necessity makes dastards valiant men. By sowing frugality we reap liberty, a golden harvest. Oayety is the soul's health ; sadness is its poison. A great mind will never give an af front nor bear it. The less we parade our misfortunes the more sympathy we command. Most of our misfortunes are more supportable than the comments of our friends npon them. It is not only old and early impres sions that deceive us ; the charm of novelty has the same power. These is ho Death. If it be true that nature abhors a vacuum, it is equal ly true that the Great Creator abhors death and glories in life. There is real ly no suoh things ss death the tennis a misnomer, used to designate the changes which occur in life. Life, eternal life, is created by the laws of Almighty will power, whioh are as immutable in their application as is the existence of the Creator himself. When God made life, He made everything neoessary to sus tain it, but left it for man's progressive intelligence to discover, convert and utilize. Good medicine is to the ailing physique what good fuel is to the expir ing flame ; the better the fuel, the quicker the firethe better the medi cine, the quicker comes relief from pain. California Vinegar Bitters is life's elixir for old or young. Use this medicine properly and you will live to to a good old age without those physical ailments which make seventy years a burden. The use of aniline red for coloring hair-oils is condemned by the Labra tory, and an instance is cited in proof of the injurious effects resulting from the employment of oils so colored. A man in Boston, who had for some time fre quented a barber's shop in whioh ani in fir, began to experience a disagreeable itching of tbe scalp, very similar to that prod need by arsenic. On inquiry, the trouble waa traced to tha hair.n.1 whioh contained arsenic present in the aniline color ; and, by diaoon tinning its nee. the eruption soon disappeared.
