’TWIXT MAY AND JUNE.
Here let us rest aud slug.
While the warm breezea blow
O'er sunlit pastures gay with all the flowers of
spring,
Where dappled herds all day a-graziug go,
Or lie in shadow where the bows hang low.
The year is in its prime,
No charm la overblown.
Ah, prithee stay thy sands,* thy goldeu sands, old
Time!
Pass on to other lands, till onr young birds arc
flown,
Leave us and joy a little while alone.
What docs thy haste avail.
When all for once goes well?
Old traitor, thou const creep as slow as any snail,
If a poor heart doth weep, or passing bell
Ring for some vanished hope the funeral knell.
Grant us a brief delay,
Now when our souls are fain
With longing as we drink the summer hours away;
And, dreaming on the brink of heart-sweet pain,
Ponder the cuckoo s liquid low refrain.
It may not be, alas!
Faster than blossoms fall,
The honey-laden hour will vanish, fade and pass—
Fly sweet! come sour I The bitterest pang of all
Is spared us—when Oie perfect joy doth pall.
The Model Farmer.
He should not buy more land than he
can pay for easily, and till to advantage.
The hardest thing to raise on a farm is a
mortgage. Thirty or forty acres carefully
cultivated will prove more profitable than
two hundred on which the same care and
labor are expended.
He should not have more stock than he
can shelter well and keep in good order
through all the season. It is poor econo
my to stint cattle through the winter and
expect them to do as well in the coming
spring at they would under generous treat
ment. A man should be merciful to his
stock not only because of moral considera
tions but because it pays best in the end.
Cattle that are stoned by the boys, kicked
by, the men and worried by dogs; are not
likely to thrive in flesh or milk. Such
treatment is silly, brutal and every way
unprofitable. The occasions are very rare
where beasts of burden—horses or oxen—
arc benefited by the application of the
rod. People who wreak their
on helpless dumb animals are at tW se
ments something lower than ( |
selves.
He should keep a camfcj account 0 f his
income and
on uncertainties.
.murtbf keeping a close account begets
prudence, enconomy and wisdom in man
agement. If a man can figure out a fair
profit as the result of his year’s labor it is a
source of satisfaction and contentment; if
the balance is on the other side he will as
certain the cause of his failures and follow
new courses. “Book farming” is no lon
ger despised by intelligent men.
He should make his home and its im
mediate surroundings as pleasant as his
means will permit. He should at least
take as much pride in beautifying his home
and supplying it with the comforts and
conveniences, if not the luxuries of life, as
He does in having fine or blooded stock and
neat and large outbuildings. A proper
regard for the happiness of those whose
duties lie chiefly within doors would dictate
this. The “matters of the house” arc of
primary importance, for what after all is
the chief end of labor but to make the
home-life happier and better. Half the
dulncss and monotony of life on the farm,
driving the boys and girls to the towns
and cities, would be banished if the same
pains were taken to make the home beau
tiful and attractive that are taken by most
residents of towns and cities.
The successful farmer will do his work
in season. There is no business where reg
ularity is mure essential than in farming.
The merchant and the manufacturer can
cover ground lost by neglect or inattention
easier than the farmer. The farmer who
is chasing lijs work all the year round,
trying to catch up with it, is doomed to
ultimate failure.
How to Secure a Good Sod.
Germantown Telegraph.
It is a matter of surprise to notice the
waste of time and money by many people
in their efforts to acquire a sod for a lawn,
or filling up defective parts of it, or even
for a yard. They look frequently about
the roadsides, unused lanes or “commons”
for spots of old sod, filled with many nox
ious weeds hard to get rid of, and employ
men and carts to haul it, some time from a
considerable distance, though only a small
space is desired to be supplied, when a far
better sod can be obtained by sowing the
proper grass-seed on the ground where the
sod is intended to be, it being prepared in
the same way as if intended lor a garden
crop. Some time ago we had occasion to
sod a space left in the lawn by the removal
of several large Norway spruce trees. The
ground was very hard and could lie dug only
a few inches in depth in preparing it for the
seed, and was really in poor condition for
the purpose; besides no manure was applied.
About one pound of “mixed lawn grass
seed” was sown and a garden-roljer passed
over it. This was the last week in April.
In ten days the grass made its appearance;
by the -Bth of May the ground was covered
and by the sth of June it was clipped, and
by the 15th clipped a second time. Thus,
in about six weeks there was a new sward,
fresh and beautiful, free from weeds, and
greatly superior to the old adjacent sward.
But it would have been more beautiful
still, if possible, could the ground have
been prepared as it should have been.
The expense of sodding these bare places,
in buying, cutting, hauling and putting
down and watering, after the old style,
would not have been less than fifteen dol
lars; while the cost of seeding and rolling,
as nothing else was done to it, was about
one dollar and twenty-five cents, all told.
Sod, acquired in this way, which is new,
perfect and postively lovely, free from all
weeds, will remain so for generations.
Red Pepper for Stock.
It does not appear to be generally known
among farmers what an excellent tonic and
appetizer red pepper is. It is good formau,
beast, or bird. Its good effects when given
to poultry at this season is known to many
housewives, and some farmers know of its
value when mixed with the slops and fed
to hogs. But how many farmers ever
gave red pepper to cattle, horses, andshccp?
And yet it is about as useful to them as
to any other animal. It possesses a highly
stimulating and invigorating property, gives
the sytem tone and strength, renews the
appetite, and enables weakly animals to
move and feed with avidity. For sickly
stock there is, perhaps, no better medicine.
It may be given in bran, corn meal, or slops,
at the rate of a teaspoonful a day of the
ground article to a single sheep or cow or
one fourth as much to a fowl. But it is
sufficient in most cases to make of the
whole pods a strong tea, and mix it in the
feed, or boil it in the slops for the hogs.
Every family should use it largely, for it
is as good for mankind as for animals.
Instead of the black pepper, the home
grown red pepper should take its place, and
some of it ought to be on the table at every
noon-day meal. Every family should raise
it for domestic use. Its value as a pre
ventive of disease is beyond estimation.
For song-birds that are dull and drooping,
a little of it will be found highly beneficial.
Let every farmer grow red pepper, and
make liberal use of it among his stock.—

The wonderful rosy
MORNINGS AND EVENINGS
Are said to be caused by the reflection of the
sun upon the dust cast up by the recent vio
lent volcanic eruptions. We differ with
scientists on this point, and think it is but a
faint reflection of the success we meet with
in selling the
Elegant New Crown Sewing Ma
chine, Weaver’s Sweet-Toned
York Cottage Organ, and the Neat,
Comfortable Florence Oil Stove.
Having sold over 200 Crowns, about 100
Weaver Organs and many Florence Oil Stoves,
we think we can afford to stop ten minutes to
write up a little poetry which may astonish
the world. Here it is, after ten weeks hard
work and a little waste of brain (can’t stand
much of the latter):
New Crown Sewing Machine:
The rose is red.
The nose is too;
I like the CROWN,
And so will yon.
Tiy it! try it! do!
Weaver’s York Cottage Organ :
Our face gets cold,
But we are bold,
And when we place a WEAVER
We are always sure to leave her;
And home we come with cash,
If we don’t have a smash.
Florence Oil Stove:
Our Stove’s name is FLORENCE,
Our dog’s name is Joe;
The Stove needs but a match,
But tin pans make dogs go.

J^YSPEPSIA— NERVOUSNESS.
For Dyspepsia, Nervousness, Bilious At
tacks, Headache, Costiveness, Chills and
Fevers, and all diseases of the Liver and
Stomach, J. M. LAROQUE’S ANTI-BIL
IOUS BITTERS are decidedly the most po
ll tent remedy that can be used. It is a purely
b vegetable, faultless family medicine, and has
0 been manufactured at LAKOQUE’S PHAR-
J MACY, one of the most prominent Drug
• Stores of Baltimore, for more than half a
1 century. Its efficiency in all forms of LIVER
DISEASE has been tested and approved by
thousands of the most prominent citizens of
Baltimore, who have used it successfully in
combating the above complaints, all of which
arise from a derangement of the liver and
disordered stomach. We therefore say to you
confidently, if you have Dyspepsia, suffer from
Sick or Nervous Headache, have Chills, Bow
els are Constipated, or you feel generally
played out and don't care a continental wheth
er you live or die, TRY J. M. LAROQUE'S
ANTI-BILIOUS BITTERS, and our word
for it, a single dose, taken cither at night on
retiring or in the morning before breakfast,
will make you feel like a new man. If you
live in a malarious section, where Chills and
Fever abound, it will be found a most effectual
remedy in guarding the system from all attack.
The price, too, is reasonable and within the
reach of all—2-5 cents for the Herbs in pack
age, or SI.OO for the bottle ready prepared.
