Anil Fanny lirown'a face was pnlo with fright as she drew lier dainty little font away from a large spotted toad she had nearly stepped upon. "Why, no use, of course," said Ben "only to scans silly girls; and tliey are needed for thnt, because girls will screech and snnall pnoup-h. to startle the man in the moon, if they oniy sec. their own shadow; so they arc of no use tor onythina:." 'Yes; but, I'cn, mother says every thing lias a nn.s-iion; and this toad is a thing, so it must have one." 'U, bah' Mother is a mighty smart nnd good woman, but she says herself 8he doesn't know everything; and it's my opinion that on 'this particular point, as Sjipure James would say, she js mistaken. She is crazy on tho sub ject of missions, lint this toad hasn't any, 1 know. And I believe a good many people are just like it of no use under the sun; don't you, l-'iin?" "1 do, if Kan doesn't. And I am one f them; a great, awkward creature that has never accomplished anything hut to lill up and mar a space that some one else would have adorned. 1 guess lien is right, and I belong to the class of people like the toad of no uso under the sun." And a bitter expression, sad to see on so young a face, settled in tho dark eyes anil around the thin lips of their eldest sister. Sue, as, sitting by a window, hidden by the dark green leaves of a large lilac bush, she hadbeen listening to the children's prattle. Poor Sue ! Of a naturally sensitive nnd rather melancholy disposition, she had, unfortunately, in her early girlhood heard a thoughtless visitor remark that in a large family of children of remark able beauty, she was tho only ugly one. And her mirror seemed to her to verify the statement ; for the great black eyes, straight, raven-black hair, dark com plexion and thin lips, were a striking contrast to the other fair faces, with their light, waving hair, that daily surrounded the family table of the Brown's. Her disposition, too, was unique, nnd unlike all by whom she was surrounded. She had lived an almost isolated life, though in a large family of brothers and sisters. The brother next in age to her self had died in infancy, and the twins, Nellie and Dellio, four years younger two gay, bright creatures, as much alike in nature as in names and age had no need of any company or sharer in their mutual objects of interest, while Fanny and lien were as inseparable as sub stance and shadow. Wandering through the grove in search of nuts or berries, pouring over tho same lesson or story books ; telling to each other all their hopes and plans, or forming themselves into a self-appointed committee for the purpose, they criticised and discussed the merits and demerits of the Brown family as freely as if they themselves had no part nor lot in it. So, left to her self, she had found companionship in books, whose dear old authors never al luded to or reminded her of hor "unfort unate ugliness," as she termed it. And while Nelly and Dellie were crimping and frizzing their hair and arranging their flounces and rutlles for party or picnic, she, in careless attire, with hair drawn back any way to keep it out of her eyes, was reveling in the scenes of an cient history; roaming with "Agnes of Sorrento" through orange groves; fol lowing "David Copperlield" through his weary childhood, or wandering with "Evangeline" in her hopeless search for the loved and lost. But to-day a strange feeling of unrest had taken possession of her a nervous dissatisfaction with her self and all by which she was surround ed. Turning with restless fingers the leaves of her favorite poet, Longfellow, the "Psalm of Life" met her eye, with its "Lives of great men nil remind us We eiin make our lives suhlime, And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on tho sttuds of time." " I don't believe it ! There is no sub limity to be made of my life, and I will never make any ' footprinlson the sands of time' that any one 'seeing, may take heart again.'" And, with a rudeness and snap which might have startled its author from a quiet nap in his chestnut chair, she thrust the volume in the b" M case and sauntered down stairs, where she arrived just in time to see Nelly and Dellie, radiant in fresh muslin, with rib bons to match, embarking for a picnic, of which she had not even heard. The father and mother gone to the city on business, taking the two little ones with them, and she had the great, quiet house to herself. "I wonder if tho30 butterflies will make any ' footprints on tho sands of time?'" she said, as she watched the twins tripping gaily down the walk, and caught the merry ripple of their laughter as they disappeared from sight. " Well, may be 'tis better to be a butterfly out in the sunlight than a dreary black cricket up in the attic," and she seated herself at the window just in time to hear Fan and Ben's conversation. Though she had herself answered Ben's question, she leaned forward to hear Fanny's re joinder, which came clear and quick ; " No, mother is right. Everybody has a mission. You know mission moans work, and all can work some way." wen, ran, as you seem to know f much about it, let s play you are a mis nonary sort oi a woniau preacher, you know and I'll bo a heatiiener; and in the course of your remarks inform your benighted audience what great mission I or any other Brown has. Say you be gin at the head of the family, and take us all in order down to tho baby. There a lot of Browns, and maybe the con version or tho conquering of the world depends upon our family." Well, to begin," said Fannie, null ing minted by tho task assigned liflr, though, liko iiiaiiy another apeaker, tte j was altogether unprepared, "there U father and mother but, Urn, what does mortgage mean? I heard father tell mother this morning that he would have to mortgage the place to raise money to pay oil' some dulil, nnd they seemed in so much trouble about ii ; nnd mother said slit- couldn't help wishing the older children were boys, so they could help make a living; and there seemed to he nothing for girls to do. I'll tell you what it is, lien, if I were as old and as smart as Sue, I'd teach school, or some thing." "1 think if you did you would have to slick up n liltie more than sho docs, and comb your hair and put on a clean col lar once a week any way, or I wouldn't bo one of your pupils, you bet." "For siiarne, Ben! Father says Sue has more senso than all the rest of us put together. And I believe he thinks sho is the prettiest child he has, too, fol he often says she looks just like his mother, and you know everybody's mother is pretty." "Well, maybe she is," said Lv n; "but I like to see girls liko Nell and Dell sort of fancy, you know girls wh(. know how to comb their hair and fix up." "But father says Sno is filling hot head, while Nell and Dell a -o only orna menting the outside of theirn." "Well." began tho beauty-loving Ben again, "if I had a good watch I'd want a handsome -asc for it." Strange revelations, all iIhmo, to the silent giil at the window. The parents' trouble to provide a living ; the probable mortgage of the dear old home ; hei father's appreciation of herst If ; the mor bid sellishness with which she had shut herself away from the family love and sympathy, and the fact that shi had never made an ellort to win tl e love, and, with it, aniiillucnce over her gay young brother all came over her u ith a rush, that, had he known it, it would have made lieu acknowledge that even that toad had a mission, since it. occasioned the conversation that caused the tumult in her thoughts. Two hours later, as the children stood at I he gate waiting for the family wagon, they were joined by a tall girl, whoso long, black hair was arranged in glossy, liecotuiiig braids, decorated with two bright pink rosebuds, with another at her throat, where a snowy white collar was fastened, while her great, dark eyes were gleaming with the light of a new inspiration. "Why, Sue!" exclaimed the impulsive Ben, "vou look just like Mrs. Alison this evening!" And the light in the dark eyes grew brighter, for wasn't Mrs. Anson, tho minister s voun? wife, known to be Ben's ideal of a queenly looking woman? And two weeks later Mr. Brown lis tened like one in a dream to the gentle manly trustee, who called to inform him that, his daughter's application for the district school had beeu accepted, and tne term would begin the following Monday. "What does it all mean?" ho in quired, turning to Sue, who had tiuietlv entered the room. "It is the result of a short sermon from a little woman preacher, named Fanny Brown, which I had tho privilege of liateuing to." N. Y. Observer. Letting One's House. To a refined mind tho notion of letting one's house, one's homo the sacred center whence spring all the tendrils of the heart, the neuclus of a life's joys, hopes and suH'ering must be inexpress ibly repugnant. A stranger sleeps in your bed, fingers 3-our favorite books, sneers at your pet arrangements, dines at your hospitable board, anil ferrets out all your particular contrivances. Noth ing is sacred, nothing is hidden from him; ho cuts and mangles your precious flowers, wipes his feet on your carefully preserved carpet, lolls about and tears the chintz oil your peculiar armchair, breaks the old familiar crockery and up sets tho ink over a long-respected table cover. The very walls seem to tell him your secrets and to unveil tho thoughts of your mind; for the atmosphere of a house is, so to speak, redolent of tho person himself; whether he be a smoker, a recluse and bookworm whose heart delights in the scent of Russia leather, a dilettante dabbling in oil-paints, an aes thetic redolent of incense and faint lilies, a house-mother fond of home-made lav ender and pot-pourri, an invalid given to tho fumes of can-do-cologne and ether, a fine lady saturated with poudre Ua riz and the scent of frangipauni and peau (V Kspagne whoever and whatever he may be, the house tells his history, in its faint odors, in the perfume of forgot ten drawers, in the reek of a study-curtain, in tho intangible quality of the air. The arrangement of the furniture be trays the tone of a man's mind, whether he bo precise, orderly or luxurious; tho combination and harmony of colors re veals his taste, tho quality of stud's de cides whether ho be penurious, generous or lavish. The number of dining-room chairs tolls what company he keeps, tho marks of nails on the stairs whether there aro boys about tho placo, tho names of the books in the library to what degree of culture he has attained whether he is sporting, horsey, liter ary or devout. The olliees show tho state of his income by the number of servants ho keeps, tho sizo of the cellars his qualities of temperance and sobriety. Thers is not a nook of the man's mind that remains unexplored. His loves, his hopes, his ambitions, his wife's housekeeping, his daughter's vanity, the number of his children all are laid bare to the careless gaze of the casual observer. London World. Japan Houses. The mode of constructing the housej here, while causing the least outlay, is admirably adapted to the conditions of tho climate. A Japanese house is really a double affair. The most expense is put into tho roof, which is of splendid heavy tilo ill all the towns and villages. On the isolated farm houses straw thatch is used more cxteusively. Tho roof is sustained by uprights framed into it, which have their foundations on the ground. The floor is generally about two feet above tho ground, and is di vided into rooms by paper partitions, which are in sections and slido in grooves. They can, at pleasure, be en tirely removed, leaving, if necessary, the entire area in one room. The sides of tho building, or at least one or more, are also in sections, which slide in grooves, and are removed during tho ua if required. Generally there is a space left for a passageway between the outside and the inner partitions forming tho rooms, so that in winter the rooms inclosed only by puper screens aro made warm and comfortable by tho protection of the outer shell when slid into posi tion, while in summer the facility with which all partitions are removed insures good ventilation. Very many of tho houses are built with an interior court, devoted to ornamental shrubs and flow ers, showing an admirable degree of ass thetie taste in tho people. tor. Sun Francisco Chronicle. FARM AND FIRESIDE. For warts on animals, J. B. Mai hews gives the following: Taken small quantity of arsenic, and a good sized piece of twine, dissolve tho arsenic in water, soak the twine in the solution, then tie around the neck of the wart. It will come oil' in a week,, root and branch. Have succeeded in it when all other remedies failed. I'rairir. Farmir. Bats in firaiiaries : A correspondent of tho Journiil iV Atjrirullure I'royrcisioe suggests a method of getting rid of these pests that has the advantage of having been most successful in his own ease. H is to till their holes with chloride of lime and oxalic acid, when a violent disen gagement of chlorine takes place, their holes are tilled with gas and they are sulloeated. The test as to whether a young treo i making sufficient growth or not is made by examining its new shoots. If these grow twelve to fifteen inches annually, neither manure nor additional culture is probably needed. If less than this length of new wood is grown, something is needed to stimulate the growth and increase tho vigor of tho treo. N. Y. Examiner. i So long as some people will eat the skin of a sweet potato, after due remon strance, try to make it as nearly eatable as possible. To do this the potatoes should be baked in a dripping-pan; tho skin will then bo baked uniformly, nnd there is almost no danger of its burning on one side. If you havo enough left from one meal to warm for another, do not throw them away, but slice them thin and fry them in butter. A pretty way to cover a haircushion is to knit stripes of zephyr worsted or ot yarn in different colors. Suppose you iiave three stripes, one of red, one ol blue, and the third of black, knit them together, put tlcm over the cushion, an d at each corner fasten a scarlet bow. or, instead of bows at the four corners, a cord and balls ma le of worsted look very pretty at the two front corners. This cushion has a soft, warm look which is appreciated in winter. AT. 11 Post.

St. Louis Globe. Most persons, no doubt, havo seen hogs eating hay during tho winter monlhs, in but small quantities, it is true, but still eating it. If clover is cut when in fullest bloom, well cured and stored away, the hay becomes a valuable food 'for hogs, especially when fed but little else than corn. To utilize it, cut it in a cutting box, a half to three-fourths of an inch long, mixed with bran, shorts or cornmeal, and moisten it with swill, or even water; if made scalding hot tho better. Then let it stand for a few hours before feeding it out. Any of tho grasses, if cut in bloom and made into hay, will answer a good purpose, but clover is preferable. Besides being valuable as food, hay thus fed is a pre- 'ventive of diseaso in hogs full fed on corn. Chicago Journal. Sowing Wheat. A perfect wheat soil, as has been re peatedly stated on this page, must con tain lime, potash, phosphate and nitro gen in their various combinations with other mineral elements, and in due pro portions, and at the same time be sulli ciently porous to permit water to pass down readily and leave the surface dry and firm. Lime soils aro especially adapted to wheat. Sandy and gravelly soils by liberal manuring can bo made productive, and no means perhaps aro more effective than clover and plaster or gypsum. Soils that yield good clover crops will yield good wheat crops, and a clover soil is one of the best natural prepara tions for wheat. Not a few cultivators seed corn ground to wheat. Some sow wheat among the standing corn, but this is not largely practised, as it leaves the surface of the land in had order. Others cut up tho corn and plow and sow wheat. Tho lateness of this opera tion is an objection in many sections. Other cultivators select an oat field or fallow land. There is a great diversity of opinion in regard to sowing wheat after barley or oats. Many successful farmers do it; while, ou the other hand, many consider the practice a careless one and unworthy of good husbandry. The relative merits of drill and broad cast sowing of wheat aro discussed every season. The area seeded with the drill, according to recent reports, amounts to fifty-seven per cent, in the wheat-growing States. Where tho soil is in good condition and free from obstructions in tho way of rocks and stumps, the pref erence is almost invariably for drilling. Among the advantages claimed for drill ing aro saving of seed and placing the fertilizer in closer proximity to the seed. A great argument in favor of drilling is that it must be preceded by thorough culture. Many farmers roll their laud just before tho drill to solidify the sur face, while tho soil is left loose under neath. Clover and field-peas aro accepted as among the cheapest and best renovators of the soil and produce excellent results, especially in thin soils. Tho application of lime increases tho yield of any of tho grain crops and is beyond question bene ficial to wheat, but will exhaust the land if persovored in without rotation. After wheat is sown lime is often advantage ously used as a top dressing when mixed with ashes, muck, etc. Where tho use of fertilizers is confined to tho practice of spreading them over the ground and plowing in, or scattering over the sur face and harrowing in previous to sowing the seed, the operation of fertilizing is confined to stated periods of tho year. But where the practice is adopted of surface manuring after germination and growth has been made, the work of man uring may go on from fall until spring, and in that way the winter accumulation of manure be used. In no case is it well to spread manure heavily enough to in duce rank growth nnd thus endanger the crop by lodging or rust. In applying ground bone and the superphosphitesca wheat it is generally sown broadcast. Better drainage and better tillage are each year being given by professional wheat cultivators, who have also dis covered that there is a happy medium between very thick and very thin suod ing. JV.

Miss Lizzie Hammond, of San Frn C'seo, fell and disjointed her neck, as necks are expected to he disjointed whoa their owners are hung, but her physician chloroformed her, set tho joints together as they belonged, and she is getting well.

Readers are advised to select, for their 'arliest autumn costumes solid colors, and use the simplest des.gns sent over from Paris. For instance, get Sicilicnnn, ottoman wool reps, or esshniero of a dark shade of brown, green or red, for the corsage and drapery of what, appears to bo a prineesso dress, but really is a cuirass corsage with the skirt entirely separate and attached below the hips by great hooks that eat"h on loops sewed to Hie waist. If the waist is Sicilienne, the skirt may be of plush or velvet ot the same shade, nnd for a bride's vis iting costume, or her traveling suit in which she is to bo married, this will be best of golden brown, darker seal brown, or the new electric blue. The basque should bo fitted smoothly over the hips without any pleating added in tho back seams and should he a "round basque" that is, of even length nil around, instead of being shortened on the hips or lengthened in the back. This basque of Sicilienne has a Breton vest of tho same laid in very fine pleats as far up as the top of the first dart, then let fall in a loose soft puff, gathered in at the neck, and finished there with a double standing rufllo of Sicilienne that should extend all around the neck. Tho Breton vest, it will ho reiii"tnbercd, be gins on the right sido and laps to tho left, hiding the buttons that fasten the fronts of the waist. Ou the edges of tho vest, concealing where it begins, is a plush rovers that extends all the way up around tho back of tho neck; the edges of this revers meet at the waist line and are scalloped on the inner side and cord ed with Sicilienne. For this vest Sici lienne five-eights of a yard wide is used, and the fine pleat.s, flatly pressed and much lapped, are twenty in number. A drooping fringe-like ornament of passe menterie halls falls below the throat across this vest, and similar ones are on the plush eu'fs, directly over the back drapery, hnd on each hip below the plush pockets. The plush skirt, with one side gore, a front gore and straight back breadth, is cut out around the lower edge in deep narrow scallops six inches long and two inches wide and these are bordered with Sicilienne; these scallops fall on a box-pleated plush balayeuse, 'The hip drapery of Sicilienne represents short, full paniers in three lengthwise box-pleats, with the edges turned under in a p'lff. On tho plain part aro pockets of plush long, narrow, with bias corners and the fringe passe menterie below. For plain cloth dresses made at home, Hercules braid two inches wide is the trimming. These should have a habit basque only two inches deep on the sides, sharply pointed in front, and with the long square middle forms of the back held in two double box pleats. A row of black Hercules braid is across these box pleats, while the other edges of the basque are corded. Two rows of braid outline a vest up tho front, and aro pointed to form cull's. The standing ca let collar is of velvet the color of the cloth, and dull old silver carved buttons fasten the waist. The lower part of tho skirt has a lengthwise tucked flounce half a yard deep, with only its upper half tucked, and the lower part failing in loose pleats over a box-pleated balay euse. The apron over-skirt is draped on the lower skirt, and its edges are sewed underneath at the head of the tucked flounce. The front is much wrinkled and has five rows of Hercules braid lengthwise from the belt to tho edge. Over this is worn a jacket mantle. This is a partly fitted sleeveless jacket, with a mantle drapery that falls low over the arms liko a Dolman. It has deep Byron collar of velvet, satin strings to tie at the throat, and two rows of wide braid for trimming. This costume, made of old green cloth with many parallel rows of black soutaijie, or of invisible blue with black wide Hercules braid, or of golden brown cloth with the brighter ficelle-colored braid, will be simple and stylish choice for the tirst cold autumn weather. A turban of En glish straw, with velvet brim trimmed with many cocks' plumes, and one or two small, meek, sad-looking doves, or elso sea-swallows, in front, should be worn with it. Harper's Bazar. A Gentle Horse. My wife, having been run away with once, is always afraid the horse is going to run away with her again. Yesterday when Harrington, who runs tho Maple wood Hall stables, brought up a span, he had to stand tlje usual ipicstioning: "Now, are they very gentle?" "O, certainly kind as kittens." "Did they everrun away?" "Never,''' "Do you think they could run away?" Harrington looked at the horses sadly and said: "Madame, to be frank with you, I don't think they could." "Well, have they ever been fright ened?" "No, never. Nothin' could frighten 'em," said Harrington. "Has anything ever happened to them that would have frightened them if they had been skittish?" continued my wife, earnestly. "Weli, yes, ma'am, stithin' did hap-' pen thill her day that would haveskeercd em ef thev'd been skittish." "What, 'Harrington what?" "Why, I was drivin' along down the Woolsey hill; a storm camo up, an' si streaks of lightnin' struck them horses right on tho head, and " "Did they run?" "No, ma'am; they didn't move, lhe jest stood still and pawed the ground for more lightnin'. They liked it." "An', the next day, continued Har rington, "A city feller was drivin' this team, an' he let a railroad train go right through 'cm." "Did it kill them?" "Go, but the city feller was all used up. lint you oughteraseen them horses. They acted so human like. Why, when they picked them out of the trees, they walked straight up to that city feller, took hold of liis clothes with their teeth, and " "O, my!" "Lifted him right back into the wagon again, and " "My gracious me!" "And then they hitched themselves back onto the wagon and drove them selves home.

It seems that, so far from the un exploded Inflexible shell (to which I then alluded) being the only instanco in which the fu.o failed, scores have been found lying about in the samo condi tion. Tho cost of this sort of ammuni tion is enormous, and if half of the shells aro to prove harmless, wo seem to get very little for our money.

Stopping a Bullet With the Thumb. A curious nnd litna-known pi peri meiit, showing the resistance of the air in (jnns, is described by Professor 1 fnniel Colhidou, of Geneva, in a recent li tter to M. Melsenn. Ha was lonp' in the habit of showing it to his classes. It! resell.! ih s the feat that was soiiiefiines performed by soldiers with the old Swiss curliincs. M. Colhuion fully charred with compressed air thn hollow iron breech of an air-pun, serving as a reser voir. Having screwed up the gun ho in troduced a round lead bull, running freely, but nearly filling the bore; then pluoing the gun vertically, he eized tho upper end, and pressed his thumb vigor ously on the mouth. The gun was then "fired" by an assistant; the thumb re mained in position, and the ball was heard to fall bnek n the bore. There upon, after recharging the breech with the same ball, he shot the latter at a pine board about one-fourth of an inch thick, or a pane of glass, and it passed through. The experiment, M. Colladon says, is without danger if the opertttoi in sure of tho strength of bis thumb, if the gun is more than thirty-two inches long, and if the ball is spherical and nearly fills the gun, (in which it must net like a piston). The least uncertainty in the very vigorous pressure of the thumb nnd the hermetic closure of the gun, may entail serious injury to the thumb. While M. Colladon has re peated the experiment twenty or thirty times without the least inconvenience either from shock or heat, a trial of it is perhaps hardly to be recommended.. Swan's Skin and English Complexions. An English statistician says that no less than 7,00(1 swan's skins are nnnually imported into London alone for the ex clusive manufacture of the "puffs'' used for the purpose of laying powder to the face. Fvery swan's skin makes about sixty puffs, which would make an an nual consumption of 4'20,0O0 puffs. Is, then, the natural whiteness of the Eng lish skin a myth ? The same English statistician says that tons of rice mid wheat powder are consumed anuuall v in England, nnd he regrets the wnste of so much rice nnd wheat, which might be better used to feed the starving. LaJy'i l ictorial M in-lit. Tho st,ump of a pine ling-pole raised in Elniira by the Whigs during the "Tippecanoe and Tyler too" campaign, forty-two years ago, was dug up the other day, and the sight of it recalled to many of the old inhabitants the stirring scenes amid which it was dedicated. A grand jollification meeting was held on the day on which the flag was hoisted, nnd the enthusiasm lasted until late into the night. But the first rays of the morning sun kissed, not the glorious banner of the Whigs, but a red flannel petticoat which the enemy bad hoisted iu its place. AC . Times.
